Marketing Your Online Store

Because of curiosity and my love of all things Internet related, more than three years ago I attended a bloggers’ get together. When asked if I had a blog, my answer was that “I do so much writing already, why would I ever need or enjoy creating a blog?” Since that memorable evening I read a few blogs, but still felt no desire to have one of my own. And then, it happened! I was bombarded by glowing reports of the importance of and marketing payoffs of having a blog.

A weblog that I take pleasure in following let me realize that an airline company was supplying 75,000 bonus miles for signing up for any credit card. I was glad this blogger pointed it out, and I was happy to sign up for the solution by way of his link because I figured he really should get paid for letting me know about it. This is a great example of how do blogs make money.

Writing an eBook is one of the easiest ways of making real money online. The key to writing a successful eBook is to find people who desperately need information then you take the time to do research about the topic and finding a solution to their problem and compiling an eBook. An eBook can be as small as 12 pages and can net as much as $100. The hint to find a client is to analyze your life and find instances where you or someone else close to you could have used information to avert pain or to save you a lot of money, and then a person can find amicable solutions to these situations and compile them in eBooks.

When you search for WoW related walk with me or blogs that mention World of Warcraft, you might find that there are so many, you don’t know how you will keep up with all of them or go through them properly. This is why you can make use of helpful features such as RSS feeds. This will allow you to view all of your favorite WoW blogs through a feed reader to scan the headlines first and see what you want to read over.

Sure, this can be a sound argument depending on an individual and their unique business situation. I don’t believe there is a one-sized fits all publicity approach for every business.

The first rule about blogging is to make friends. Despite the fact that some blogs are actually corporate, serious and professional in their approach, most blogs these days are friendly and personal. So, what do you have to do to bring people into your blog? Blog hopping. Yes, visit other people’s blogs and give them comments (genuine ones, please) and provide a link back to your blogs. The key is to MAKE FRIENDS.

Blogs have become so popular because they are so very user-friendly for advertising. They are practical, easy to set up and very convenient to use. Keeping content up to date is very easy for webmasters who otherwise would have to spend hours uploading and downloading files. Be warned, however, that setting up a ‘Free’ Blog, will mean you will have a lot of other people’s ads on it (There’s no such thing as a ‘free lunch’). It’s always worth paying because, yes, you get what you pay for.

In summary, if you do nothing else but find a product to sell, create a website, attract customers, and then promote the heck out of your products, you will make money online. This is true for all beginners!
