Marketing Talk / Re: Microblogging
« on: July 14, 2013, 06:46:00 AM »
The best example of microblogging is Twitter. The next best example is Tumblr. The main difference between blogging and microblogging is that blogging is all about writing content, while microblogging is all about the communication with the readers.

Just as valexer, I'm not sure if microblogging could help SEO much. If you are using some of the well known platforms, links will be nofollow, so there will be (almost) no use of them. Still, catchy content and popularity will bring traffic to the site.

My thoughts are quite divided about this one - microblogging has its advantages for sure, but I am really not sure if those advantages would be usable for directing traffic to the sale pages only.

Hi Krafa,

I'd love to hear some more details about your app . What have you done till now? Do you have your app listed in app stores? What are the feedbacks saying?

Building a microsite is always a great start as it is leaving the impression of customer aware, friendly, responsible and serious developer.

I would also love to know what is your target market?

I'm not sure what you mean as far as the tags are concerned. Can you elaborate further?

Disregard this one, please - I wasn't looking carefully and looks like I saw the meta tags that don't exist. Sorry :)

Only ten? This should be easy  :loath:

My orientation in space sucks big time. I can lose myself anywhere. I am always 100% positive that I know where I'm going and even GPS cannot help me (because I know where I'm going and stupid technology doesn't).

For a long time I've been refusing to place contact lenses into my eyes and didn't want to wear glasses so I was walking through the world not seeing anything or anyone. Quite a lot people got mad at me then as I wasn't recognizing them on the street.

I don't remember peoples' faces.

Sometimes I forget to eat. But I will never forget to drink my coffee. Actually, three of them during the day.

My favorite food is - pomme frites. And I am a slow eater.

I can drink way too much wine for a lady.

I am a workaholic and I never charge my work as much as I should.

I'm dreaming about spending my vacation by playing Sims and not leaving the house.

People around me think I'm funny and entertaining, but that is actually only my OCD speaking.

When I'm bored, I go to one of the forums where I have the admin rights and correct people's grammar/spelling mistakes.

I create products on a daily basis so I am never at a loss but as a suggestion here are 3 places I could recommend for product research/article creation ideas:

Dummies is a great place for ideas, they've already done the research for you.

Check out Amazon's Best Sellers

Click on Featured Link on Ebay

Hope these help

Thank you! My next question was supposed to be what pages are you using to do your research but you've already answered it :)

Marketing Talk / Re: Anatomy of a Winning Local Site :: Part 1

OMG, what a guide! Karen, this is just awesome  :I'm Not Worthy:

What I'd like to say - I've done few local webpages , basically using most of the advices that Karen gave in her posts. (Not that I would write a detailed tutorial like this one ever in my life :laugh: ) This whole process looks like a quite a lot of work, but it isn't. It can be hard for only one person to make things running, but in a month everything will be in place and you realize it wasn't really that much of work.

One thing that was quite popular on one of the pages was the local Gossip column and street photography gallery. I really don't know if anything attracted more visitors than those two things, as every single person in town had to see if the site photographer caught them and placed in the gallery.

Off Topic Forum / Re: HYIPs and MLMs
« on: July 07, 2013, 03:20:42 PM »
I would never recommend anyone to invest money in either MLM or HYIP. Ok, if someone is 100% they know what they're doing and have a great sale skills, MLM can be a good thing to try. Still, I find it very risky and wouldn't dare.

At one point I've met a person working in the MLM business who offered me a job. There was a deal that you can go through the training before investing money in anything, so I've accepted, out of curiosity. Have to say - those were some of the best sales lectures I've ever attended  :laugh:

Blogging / Re: 4 Key Ways To Keep Visitors Coming To Your Blog Site!
« on: July 07, 2013, 02:56:11 PM »
I have a few blogs on the list of sites which for I'm doing the promotional part. Lately I've started promoting them via Facebook pages. Each of them has its own Facebook page that is updated with several posts per day (4-12, depending on the blog theme), each day. Facebook posts are always ontopic and mostly are some sort of hints what will be published in the next blog posting.

The start is a bit hard, and this whole posting process requires some work to be done, but after a month or so, all Facebook pages started getting regular new likes, regular post shares, and real and live visitors on the blogs are raising just as the popularity of the Facebook fan pages.

Marketing Talk / Re: 15 Tips To Drive Traffic To Your Blog
« on: July 07, 2013, 02:36:48 PM »

11.) Go offline. Use newspaper ads, public bulletin boards, business cards, even stickers to let as many people as possible know your blog exists.

I have to say, this is a really unique and interesting approach to driving traffic to the blog. I always thought people are to lazy to read something in the printed media and then retype it when they get to the internet.

I'd love to hear if someone tried this one?

If you do, you will need to email each of them to ask them whether they want you to do this.

This is a great little reminder people are often forgetting. If I may add - the consent which users give is ONLY for the mentioned domain/company.

Hope you don't mind if I give you an honest opinion..

You still have quite a lot of work on your site before making it really good.

My personal thoughts - With the name like that, you should turn a bit more to the community and a bit less to the ads. Design goes under personal style, but still - the local newspaper style has way more potential than you are using at the moment.

From technical side - your SEO is really bad, you have no social media involvement and you miss some content.

The first thing you should do is to repair your SEO. Basic things that are missing:
- site keywords - you have none
- meta description for the menu items - you are missing most of them
- H1 tags - you are using NONE on your pages
- image titles and descriptions - at the moment I've been checking the page your site had 33 images with 0 titles and 6 descriptions

There are several online SEO checkers and I would strongly recommend you to visit few of them, run the tests and follow the given advices as much as you can.

You are missing the content on your sites and that makes the existing tags irrelevant to the pages. Note that images should not be the main content, so you should include a bit more relevant text content.

In order to gain some good traffic you should repair your SEO and work a bit on the 'public relationships'. Regular posts on the Facebook page and Twitter could help you a lot in attracting people to your site.

It's a trial and error thingy. In order for you to get he write method, you have to at leasy try most of the methods and evaluate where did you get most of your sales. Then that's the time when you try to develop something you could call your own by modifying methods creating your own because frankly if you'll just go with the method that have already worked for somebody else, you can't expect that same method could work for you.

But don't you think that trial and error take too much time and/or money? Eventually, if you are consistent in what you are doing, the results will come - they may be better or worse, but there will be results. If a person has no idea what is doing, it can take years of trials and errors before staying with one routine long enough to see the results.

Who is your business targeting? What is the demographic? Are they online or offline? You need to answer these questions, otherwise you are just going to waste time and money on any advertising effort.

These are great questions to start with when preparing the advertising strategy.  :::tu
