If you’re launching a company for the first time, or you’ve been trading for a few months now, there’s a good chance you haven’t given much thought to an exit strategy. The chances are you’re too busy planning a successful future to worry about what happens when it all comes to an end.
Regardless of the size of your business, you need a website that is fully functional. You not only need a website that is good looking, but it’s also important to ensure the site works for your business to attract new clients and help you to grow. To achieve this, you have to understand how to use your website as a tool to expand your business. Here are few suggestions you would find useful if you want to grow your business through your website.
Choosing the domain name is an important step in the early stages of any type of website or blog, but it can be a big challenge with so many domains already registered. Personally, I really struggle to come up with possible domain names for my sites, and I know I am not alone.
One of my go-to resources over the past several years has been this list of domain name prefixes and suffixes compiled by Daniel Scocco. I’ve used this list to brainstorm possibilities for many different sites and over the years I have added many other words to create my own list that I also use. Daniel’s list was published almost 9 years ago, and so I decided to publish my own list of domain name suffixes and prefixes in this post.
You hear a lot about traffic, but not as much about leads.
But the truth is, leads are what people are really after – we just don’t express it that way.
There’s an assumption that traffic will just naturally convert to leads, but that isn’t always the case.
And what if you don’t have traffic, but want to generate leads for your business today?
In that case, you have to pursue other avenues.
I’m going to be covering 13 different ways to generate leads for your business, many of which are free, simple, and can be started now.
There are a lot of different ways to go about making money online (which is part of the reason why it can be so overwhelming if you are just getting started), and membership websites are a favorite of many online marketers. With a membership site you’ll offer some sort of content, products, or services exclusively to people who have paid to get access to your site, and it will also involve a recurring payment in order for the membership to stay active. There are a lot of reasons to like the membership model, which we’ll get into in just a moment, but I think it’s important to take a balanced look at the subject because there are also some significant challenges to having success with a membership site.
If you’re like me you probably come across a product or service just about every day that claims to be able to make you loads of money online in just a matter of days. While there are some success stories of people who have been able to make a lot of money quickly, reality is much different for the vast majority of people who attempt to make money online.
Building an online business for the long run is typically a more realistic approach, provides a more stable foundation for a business, and in the end is likely to wind up being more lucrative than a quick burst that makes some money and then dies off just as fast.
If you’re someone who is willing to put in the work that is required to build a real online business, rather than relying on gimmicks or tricks to make some fast cash, you need to make sure that you are taking a long-term approach.
One of the most effective and most popular ways to make money online is affiliate marketing. As an affiliate marketer you will probably be managing several different websites and promoting multiple affiliate products, which can become quite cumbersome to manage. Fortunately, there are a number of excellent WordPress plugins that affiliate marketers can use to accomplish different things that will help to save time and make more money.
In this post I’ll feature 25 different affiliate marketing plugins for WordPress users. These plugins cover a wide variety of functionality, so please browse through the collection and I think you’ll find at least a few that can help you in one way or another. Some of them are free and others must be purchased. Basic pricing information is included in all of the descriptions below, but please click through to the site of the seller for more details.
One of the biggest challenges in internet marketing is knowing where to focus and how to use your available time, effort, and money for maximum impact. There are countless different ways that you can go about making money online or promoting your website or blog.
The problem is that there are so many possibilities and ideas that most people tend to bounce from one to the next before ever having success. In order to succeed you’ll need to focus long enough to put in the necessary effort and time for any approach to work.
What I love about detailed case studies is that you can see the steps taken by someone else, and what they were able to achieve with their approach. Staying focused in your own work can be a lot easier when you are basing your steps off of a plan laid out by someone else, when you can see that the plan worked for them.
In this post I’ve collected a wide variety of cases studies from different blogs that I think will be very interested and practical for you. Browse through the case studies listed here and I’m sure you’ll find something that you can put into practice to improve your own business or website.
