Online Business Owners:
Examples: Strategies for online business owners include the following
* The use of a concept called “attraction marketing” is becoming more popular. This is the act of setting up your marketing system so that leads find you rather than you having to take the time to find them.
Usually attraction marketing involves one or more of the following practices: Search Engine Marketing,[there are a lot of those sites you can submit to] Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and purchasing leads.This last one may or may not be for you as you may get visitors that are not interested in what you have so be careful in buying leads.
However, everyone’s interpretation of attraction marketing methods is different. It could also include a variety of social marketing techniques, as well as newsletter promotion, articles etc. Whatever marketing strategy you use, it is considered attraction marketing if it involves in some way initiation of contact by a customer.Some of you may use all of these techniques.
* One primary focus today is the development of personal relationships with existing clients. If you have developed a file with email addresses that you can follow up with do so and keep those updated.This is even more important nowadays than is gaining new clients. Building your list is a task within it’s self.I am still low person on the totem pole here. If you can keep your present customers happy, it will lessen the need to take on new ones. However, once you take on a new customer you also need to treat that person or company with care.
* The use of automated billing, e-news generation, and online subscriptions are more forms of marketing. Interactive websites are also a very important resource for online business owners today. This I have a hang up on as I seem to get a lot of email ads for me to buy or sign up with but not the other way around.
* Creating an attractive and useful website has become a number one priority for people in nearly any home business field. Usually the best sites will provide one or more reasons for visitors to return more often than they would to another site. Some have FREE set up and training.
The more time your visitor spends on your site the greater the possibility is that they will make a purchase or join you in a business adventure. This is why you want to attract those that are interested in what you are offering.This is how we are able to build and it takes time and patience. Do not believe you are going to join a business opportunity and make a lot of income right off the bat, it does not happen.
* If you continue to keep your current and future clients interested it will be a greater advantage to you. You need to keep up with current market and technology demands in order to provide what others do not.
* Over the past ten years, online markets have realized the importance of promoting “hot sellers.” These are items that personal customers and business clients would be most interested in purchasing, [so is important you let them know.] These are products or services that should be listed number one on your web pages, blog, or auctions.
* Even though more processes of online businesses are automated today, the value of personal communication is more important than ever. You need to be there for all your clients and prospective customers when they have a question. It is also vital to the success of your business that you have knowledge about products and services you sell-whether they are someone else’s or yours.This can be a constant learning process. A means fo contact with you is critical so be sure you have that on your site or email contact. I get so frustrated when no way to contact is given, makes me wonder are they really there.
