Get the Traffic You’ve Been Looking For With Blogs and RSS Feeds
Are you a small businessman setting up a brand new website to advertise your
products? Maybe you already have an active website, but desire to
make it more interesting. Either way, you’ll want to investigate
blogs and RSS feeds to give your website some awe-inspiring zing!
Even good, hardworking marketers come up against a brick wall
sometimes. How many times have you grabbed your head in frustration,
wracking your brain for innovative ideas to liven up your website
and get more public interest? Don’t fret! Blogs and RSS feeds have
taken many small marketers’ websites and blown them sky-high with
additional traffic and revenue.
Bruce, like you, was a hard-working businessman. Now Bruce is
also a successful marketer, but he hasn?t always successfully marketed
his products. Several years ago he set out try his luck as a virtual
salesman. First, he thought of his hobbies and decided to make a
video about his most favored hobby – body- building. After months
of preparation and spirits high, Bruce’s web-page was designed and
his product on-line. "All-right!? he bragged to his good buddy,
Jeff. "I’ve got my website up and running. Now I’m going to
make big bucks on-line." His optimism quickly died after three
months when he had only sold five of his high-quality workout videos,
Twenty Minutes a Day to a Fat-free Muscle-bound Bod!
How did Bruce solve his problem and become successful? Simple! Bruce put a blog onto his website that he updated every few days. He gave his personal account of trimming his figure. Bruce also used RSS feeds to announce new products that complemented his video, and was amazed at the increase in traffic and sales his website began bringing in. Within a week, his sales had skyrocketed past his wildest expectations!
Bruce’s story is wonderful! It lifts the spirit and encourages
the weary marketers. ?But how are blogs and RSS feeds going to help
me? you might ask yourself. With blogs you can show that your product
works. What better way is there to sell an item than to let the
entire world know that the product has worked for you? Yeah, you
can place pretty, attractive pictures and have witty advertisements,
but with no proof that your product works, people aren’t going to
buy your merchandise.
"Okay, so I see how blogs can help me gain traffic, but how
will RSS feeds help?" you wonder. It’s quite simple really.
RSS feeds are syndicated, in other words they are broadcast throughout
the World Wide Web rather than to individual emails. Basically,
RSS informs the whole world that you are out there and what you’re
latest information is in one easy feed. WOW! How simple can you
