Why Personal Touch Matters in Your Digital Marketplace

Why Personal Touch Matters in Your Digital Marketplace

 

The online world remains alien for some businesses. Mostly because too many businesses become detached from their customers online when they should be focusing on marketing with meaning. Incorporating a personal touch is even more essential in your digital marketplace. When done correctly, you can get closer to your customers online than you can in any other way.

 

That last statement is a bold one but it’s true. And it’s true even when you deal with customers face-to-face. You might be thinking: how could an online relationship with a customer be more important than the relationship I have with them when they are visiting my business or using my service? The answer is because online is more intimate.

 

How To Make Money Online

How To Make Money Online

 

Your business should have a blog for many reasons. And making money from it may or may not be a reason. You see, there are lots of ways to make money online and this article will look at some of them. But before we begin: turn down the radio in your car.

 

Well, not literally. It’s a metaphor, and it’s based on something that most of us do. It happens when we are driving somewhere that’s tricky to find. As we arrive, we turn our car radios down. Most of us don’t even realize that we do this. But when we need to really concentrate on driving, we turn the radio down.

Why Your Business Should Have a Blog

 

If you are wondering why your business should have a blog, consider this analogy. Imagine your favorite television channel broadcasts your favorite show. That would be great, wouldn’t it? Now imagine they put every show from every series back-to-back. That would be even better.

 

But now, imagine if that was the only show that it broadcast for one year, two years, or more. You would quickly become tired of your favorite show, and you’d most definitely change the channel.

 

In the eyes of search engines like Google, websites that do not consistently blog are just like this. Do you want the same information presented in the same way day after day, month after month, and year after year? Not so much.  

 

The solution is blogging.

 

How to Open an Online Store

How to Open an Online Store

 

If you are considering opening an online store there has never been a better time. There are a wide variety of tools available to get you setup and you do not need to know anything about programming. But to make it a success you need time, hard work, perseverance, and a bit of luck.

 

Your store doesn’t even need to compete with Amazon in order to have a chance of success. Steady small and medium sized businesses are the lifeblood of the internet - just like they are in the offline world. So take a lead from traditional bricks-and-mortar businesses and start out on the small side.

 

Is Guest Blogging Dead Like SEO?

Is Guest Blogging Dead Like SEO?

This is of course a rhetorical question, and for those that do not realize, is also a satirical poke at the many eulogies we have heard for SEO over the years. SEO is not dead and neither is guest blogging.

Reason number one – Nothing has happened… yet

The blog post by Matt Cutts is just that, a blog post. It is a lot simpler (also faster and cheaper) to announce that you do not like a particular SEO practice than to actually roll out an algorithm to fix it. This means Penguin 3.0 anti-guest blog edition is on the horizon but will not be here for a while.

Reason number two – How can you tell?
