Everyone wants to start their own business. I look at my friends feed online and see busy mummy bloggers, first time authors, those pyramid sellers selling health & beauty product, and those with just an idea but don’t know where to go next. Maybe you’re a band, a brand, a Beauty Salon, or something in between?
If you want to get started online, either trading a product or service you sell, you want to advertise and you want to make money, then you need to read on! A little dirty secret that I’ll give away for free is that a website doesn’t really cut it anymore! People aren’t browsing the ‘Net and consuming services from a ‘brochure website’ and any content worth reading is already on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any of the other major social channels – so spending a few hundred quid on just a website will get you with a website granted, but probably not a lot of sales.
What you really need is intelligent online advertising, pushing your brand and promoting you into visibility so people know who you are and what you do. It’s within most people’s skills to build a basic website, with plenty of guides online on how to do it, and tools such as WordPress, Magento and Squarespace for example, giving people access to low cost rich content, commerce and website tools – the role of the web developer is a quickly becoming a redundant art. Why would you pay for that?
So, how do you get yourself out there online and get noticed enough to make things happen? Well there’s the art. A blend of Google Pay Per Click, contextual advertising, quality authoritative content, cross-channel marketing and decent social media activity all help – but I’m the special sauce that powers all that behind the scenes.
Working with you on your project, I can help and advise with a strategy whereby if you’re idea is good enough, the build-it-and-they-will-come approach can work. We’ll invest in a range of advertising, provide monthly reporting & analytics & help build a community around whatever it is you’re wanting to bring attention to.
Oh, and we throw a CMS driven website, domain, branding, and web hosting with an email account for a year, FOR FREE.
