For the shy and the timid, hereâ€™s something to rejoice about: if your lack of public relation skills is the only thing keeping your business from flourishing, consider relocating your business to another address â€“ a web address to be exact.
In the Internet, you donâ€™t need to speak with your customers in person or even over the phone. All you need to do is create a blog and write about what you know best: your business.
Tips for Making Lucrative Selling Blogs
Choose a design. For business blogs, go for something sleek and simple, with the font styles and links easily readable and distinguishable respectively.
Invest in a domain name. Choose something that directly brings to mind your business. You can either stick with a generic reference to your product (www.rubbershoes.com) or your brand name (www.mylittlestshoeshop.com). It must be short and catchy â€“ enough for visitors to be able to type it from memory.
Learn about search engine optimization. In the Internet, the success of all websites and blogs are dependent on how they fare in search engine rankings. Always strive to have your blog included in the first page results because most online users donâ€™t bother checking out results in succeeding pages.
More specifically, try practicing the following SEO tips and tricks:
Be friendly with fellow bloggers. Surely you could do that now? Remember: they donâ€™t know you and they canâ€™t see you. The more affiliates you have in the Internet, the more ways you can spread your link.
If youâ€™re not good at writing or just can’t find time to write, hire someone to write content for your blog. Remember to use important keywords frequently (but not annoyingly) and continuously provide fresh content.
Build traffic and attract visitors to your website by advertising and promotion. Do guest-blogging. Participate actively in forums.
Then, monetize your blog. Aside from Google AdSense, there’s Text-Link-Ads, AdBrite, Bidvertiser, LinkWorth, etc. And make sure your blog earns well from any of the monetization method you slap it with.
And lastly, always provide excellent customer service. Nothing makes your products sell better than good service! Assist the buyer of your blog with all the transactions you can help him or her on.
