Yay, today I sold my “Rootin’ Tootin’ round up of Rodeo Candlesticks” on ebay! I love waking up to a sale. And guess what? They are going to a ranch! That’s so cool.
Today I’m going to wonder about promotions. Well I can’t afford to buy an ad so that’s out.
So far I have tried to get all my sites linked together for SEO (like I know what I’m talking about). I have linked up all my friend’s and family’s sites on my links pages. This is because I am so generous and thoughtful. (Yeah, I admit, I was hoping they would so the same for me too.)
I have used the forums at Zazzle and they have brought quite a few views. There are 2 forums I like best – “Promoting and generating traffic” and “Show & Tell”. I am not sure how much business the “Show and Tell” forum will help because I think it’s mainly viewed by other zazzlers. The “Promoting and generating traffic” forums seem very helpful though. There are a ton of threads going on by people who have made a Squidoo lens and are asking for products in their theme. Every time it applies to me I hop in and add one of my products. The one thread I love in particular is called “Promo Train”. In this thread the person posting promotes the previous poster out in the web. For example, when I post, I promote folks on my Pinterest and FaceBook. I think that goes out to way more people than show and tell within Zazzle. This week, however, they are all closed for the holidays. LOL before I knew they were closed I posted for the previous person on the “Promo Train” thread – ROFLMAO I bet she has TONS of traffic because of all the people that would have done the same thing I did.
Ok, so that’s all going on but it’s not enough is it? I heard there are places where you can put your link, but there are also sneering comments about “link farms”. I don’t want to do anything that would lower the image of my company or products. I want everything to be top quality, always.
Well, dear readers, I will keep plugging away but if you have any ideas I would love to hear them.
