How to effectively do Email Marketing for Website?

Posted on by admin in Email Marketing Leave a comment

Email marketing is something which is incredibly ignored by a lot of marketers, yet it remains one of the biggest mediums of promoting your website. Email marketing is not spamming in case you are wondering.

Here are some creative and unique email marketing tips for you:

Comprehensive email content: If you send out an email which concentrates on a single product or service you’ll get very few hits. The email you send out should be detailed, informative and inviting. If you are sending it to 50 people, 40 should genuinely take interested. That is the principal I followed. Don’t overdo it but put everything relevant in that email.

Do not use images: Many email services by default block images for security reasons. Also, many users are unable to view images, this irritates the receiver. Flashy emails with lots of pictures don’t look serious these days. Use text and less pictures, put in comprehensive information and make your email “readable”. It should give out the look of a professional email rather than a movie poster.

Website Marketing using Social Media

Posted on by admin in Marketing Leave a comment

A few years back, concept of promoting an online business through social media was nonexistent. Now, due to extensive development of social networking sites and trends of blogging, social media has become a great platform for website promotion.

I find social media to be the easiest way of promoting anything. It is convenient to make accounts; there are multitudes of people that take everything on that media very seriously. I found a lot of fun in promoting my website through social media.

Another factor which makes social media marketing very successful is the price factor. There is no or very little cost.

Promoting website through social media

Here are the ways through which you can advertise your website. As you’ll see they are very hassle free.

Blogging

Make a blog about your business website and host it on your own domain. If you update the blog regularly and you have interesting info to share, people will visit the blog and improve your website’s rank eventually. You can keep a close relation with visitors and customers via blogging. Relevant sites may link your blog to their sites.

Social networking sites

Inevitably you have to promote your business on websites like MySpace, Facebook, Flickr etc. Imagine the amount of people who visit these sites every day. There is no denying that social networking websites have become an integral part of our lives, they are like our parallel virtual lives. Why not use this to your advantage? Make communities and discussion pages on these websites and promote your website.

Forums

Forums are the best way to get direct traffic to your website. However, many website owners use forums the wrong way. Do not spam a forum with your ads all over. Instead, you should become an active part of that particular community. You should participate in their discussions and maintain an active profile. After earning a good reputation and letting people know about your knowledge on that product, you can sell your website. I included my website’s link in my signature and that worked for me.

Social media marketing is very potent but it alone cannot bring your website success. You must follow the conventional marketing steps like SEO along with social media marketing – then it would do wonders for you.

5 Creative Ways to do Email Marketing for Website

Posted on by admin in Marketing Leave a comment

Many people will tell you that email marketing is dead and gone and indulging in it is a waste of time. To debunk such claims, I stand before you as an example of successful, lucrative and fruitful email marketing. Email marketing is in full flow these days and it is important way of marketing your website. Those you ignore it regret it later on.

Spamming and spam emails are not to be confused with email marketing. Email marketing in true sense is the way by which you reach out to the customers who are half interested in your product. The idea is to offer them products according to their interests and likes rather than spamming their inbox.

Email marketing I have seen is the most underrated yet effective way of marketing a website. With email marketing you need to get creative as there is a rather thin line between email marketing and spamming.

5 inventive ideas for email marketing for website

Here are the 5 creative ways for email marketing for website that I found successful.

1)      Encouraging visitors to subscribe for your email – This can be achieved by putting in a subscription form on every page on your website. Email subscription ad should be well made, attractive and tempting to look at. This can be challenging but if your website carries a good reputation people will subscribe for it. You can add encouraging captions like “get valuable and discounted offers by subscribing” etc.

2)      Send out regular email newsletters – Email newsletters are your website’s voice that will reach customer on monthly or weekly basis. Include all the latest and exciting stuff about your business. The idea is to regulating the sales out of buying customers while encouraging those who are interested but haven’t bought yet. You can use bulk email programs like iContact, Constant Contact or AWeber and others.

3)      Make new offers through email – Every business has discounted and special offers for special customers or to make visitors your customers. Instead of waiting for customers to find out these offers, why not send them emails so they can know what you are up to. If you see that the sales are beginning to slide you can concoct new offers and email them to your subscribers. It works better than you think, trust me.

4)      Follow up emails – A customer who has been inactive for sometime can be brought back by some personalized emails showing concern. You can make new offers to the customer. If a customer has purchased from you, you can ask for feedback or thank him. Such emails build a personal bond between you and your customers. Do not ignore it.

5)      Include “signature” and contact details – Include contact details in every email you send. The email should contain the address of your company (if you have a physical address), phone numbers, email addresses and other ways through which you can be contacted. A customer feels safer when he has ways to “track” you down. A website gains credibility if it is not shy of letting out its contact details.


5 Small Business SEO Marketing Techniques

Posted on by admin in Marketing Leave a comment

Small online business owners have tough decisions to make regarding their website marketing strategies. I started as a small business owner myself; in fact my website still falls in that category.

I know how difficult it is when you cannot afford to hire quality help. Your website isn’t generating that much of an income and it is hard to invest in the beginning. You must be thinking and correctly so, that a website can never get big without proper marketing.

I have good news for you; you do not have to spend a hefty chunk of your cash to market your website. Arguably the cheapest yet the most effective way to make your website successful is through search engine optimization.

Here are 5 lesser known search engine optimization techniques that will promote your small business website effectively:

1. Keyword rich page title

The title for each page is very important. Write your title in rich keywords. Think about the keywords that are most related to your website. Then think from a visitor’s point of view that which keywords is he likely to use to look you up. Try not to ad filler words such as “and” “of” “the” etc. The page title will come out hyperlinked on a search engine when somebody looks up your page.

2. META tag description

META tag is a small description appearing in search engines. The META tag you write should contain a small description which should be less than 255 words (however, Google shows the first 60). The description should contain primary keywords and do not use keywords in META tags that are not in the content.

3. Keywords in headers

The headers of your content (H1, H2 etc) should contain keywords. Now days some developers do not use H1 tags but make sure that you do. Keywords should be inserted in two three headers at least. Filler words do not harm search engine ranking in this section.

4. Make first paragraph of body text keyword rich

Try to use the keywords in the beginning of first line of your first paragraph. Nevertheless, make your first paragraph keyword rich. But don’t overdo it. Just write down normal content and make sure that your keyword appears twice or thrice in that.

5. Hyperlink the keywords

Search engines focus on little things regarding keywords on your page. If the keywords are hyperlinked in your body text, the search engines assumes it to be of importance. Link the relevant web pages to the keywords. This tells Google or other search engines that the page you’re linking to should rank for the link anchor text you’re using.

It’s little things like this that will help boost your search engine rankings and increase your targeted traffic. The more targeted traffic you have the more money you can make!

Good luck!

A Beginners Guide to Selling Books Online

Posted on by admin in Selling Books Online Leave a comment

Selling books online is slightly different from selling random things online. It requires knowledge and delicacy. I say slightly different but equally easy. If you are considering an online book selling business then let me congratulate you on your choice.

You’d be surprised to know that how many people are buying all kinds of books online. Just keep these guidelines in mind when starting online book selling.

Apply your knowledge of books to your business

When I said in the beginning that book selling is somewhat different from random online selling I meant this. Love and passion for the books is essential. If you read books only then you would think like a buyer or a book lover. If you are a book lover, you are almost sure to find people like you anywhere you go. Imagine how much competitive edge this would give you over sellers who don’t like books.

Use your love and knowledge of the books to good outcome of your business. Books are special to anyone who like books, treat your business accordingly.

Build a stock

Go to yard sales, book fairs, old book shops, regular book shops – and work out a regular supplying source for your selling. You can find a supplier as well. This is very important as you don’t want the book selling interrupted. It is a business for you and it should flow, only then you will get regular profits.

Consult from other book lovers

Build a community of book lovers, both on and offline. You will learn a lot from them. You will learn about different types of books, new writers, literature, trends etc. If you engage any of them in your business you can split tasks with them for better business management.

Locate a good website

Many people rush to this step. Creating a profile or registering with a good website is not enough. You have to find a suitable website which complies with all your requirements. A site specializing in book selling would be ideal. It would take a small amount of time, little research and you will have the best options in front of you. Amazon.com

Buy books in good condition

When it comes to books, their condition matters a lot. Worn out, torn, shabby and poor quality books won’t attract buyers. Make sure that the books you buy and sell are in good conditions. If needed take essential steps to ensure their condition improves.

Sell books on reasonable price – not too high and not too low

The prices of books should be reasonable. Keep your eye open to what the average price is. A book which high rates won’t sell and the one with low price tag won’t bring you profits. Both conditions are utterly useless for you.

Finding Items that Sell Online

Posted on by admin in Finding Items, Selling Online Leave a comment

When opening an online selling business, it is only logical to first find the things that will definitely sell online and bring you profits as well. There is no point in waiting for months for an item you posted, to sell. Online selling is easy, and it is true that more or less anything can be sold online. But if you seek business out of online selling, you should start with items that are sold readily instead of wasting your time on non-selling items.

Finding an item that would sell online is not merely a formality. It is crucially important for your business. Look at it this way, a person who randomly posts item to sell online will gradually get to know what items sell. Then he would retract his posts and re-post the items that would sell. After this process he’d know what the online market is and how it works. If you conduct a research posting items, imagine the head start you have over that guy?

Finding and Selecting the Items

There is a simple process to it. The process is straightforward but many make the mistake of ignoring it and paying the price. Here is what you need to do in order to find hot items:

Conduct online researches about items that are “in”

You can start by visiting famous websites like Ebay.com. Ebay have a section titled “What’s Hot”. Just a quick look will give you a general idea about hot selling items. But don’t stop there, browse different websites. Observe what items are being sold for what prices and also for what reasons. In little time you will have a feasibility report of your own. You’ll know where to start from. This would give you edge over other sellers.

Find a good supplier

When you are done with choosing the product(s) you wish to sell, the next step is to find a wholesaler or a supplier. The advantage of buying from a wholesaler is that they give you items on a discounted price. This makes you a decent profit through online selling.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be a formal supplier; you can pick up stuff from garage sales, flea markets etc.  As long as you are getting good products for good price, nothing else matters.

Start selling

Get registered with an online website with decent reputation and start selling. Websites will charge you a small percentage on your sales and in return they will give you a client base that is in millions. Identifying the right website e.g. Amazon.com for books, Ebay.com for random items and Etsy.com for hand stitched clothes is also important. There are many websites which specialize in particular things, you just have to discover the most suitable one for you.


Some Creative Ways for Free Online Selling

Posted on by admin in Free Online Selling 1 Comment

Online selling these days in attracting many people, so naturally more and more people are getting interested in selling stuff online. Many people are actually giving up on their conventional selling and retailing business and are switching to online selling. It is a good thing in all regards but one: the online selling is getting fiercely competitive with each coming day. Only those who practice effective online selling survive. Having said that let me also tell you that effective selling is not difficult at all.

Here are some creative ways to sell stuff online:

Selling through fixed priced sites

This is the most common type of selling. Millions of people are registered with selling sites like Ebay and Amazon – sites who prefer fixed price selling over auction. Selling through these sites open you to a client base that is global and willing to buy.

Selling through auction

Auction selling is more suitable for antiques and valuables. If you wish to deal in pricy stuff, it is recommended that you sell through auction sites. Selling regular day to day stuff through auction won’t get you anywhere. Believe me many people make this mistake. Be sure to find a site that is suitable for your products.

Selling through handmade crafts sites

It would amaze you, as it amazed me to find out that how many people are looking to buy handmade products these days. People are actually preferring handmade over readymade! That is the reason sites like Etsy – which are dedicated to handmade things, has risen in no time. There are many sites like Etsy in operation. If you are dealing in handmade items these are the websites for you.

Online Ads sites

Another simple yet extremely fruitful way of generating online sales is online ads. There is a website called Craigslist which operates in more than 500 cities in the world as an online ad site. More that 35 million people browse Craigslist monthly. Yes, you get a compelling feeling to post your sale ad on this website, and it would be a wise decision.
