Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

"I have placed my ads, what else can I do?"  

This is a question I have heard more than once and this is usually the scenario. An ad campaign is set up and the product is promoted by free and paid ads but the advertiser wonders if there is anything more they can do. There is and if the examples below are used you can expand the marketing and promotion efforts in many ways. This will result in higher conversion rates.

• Join forum groups where the members could have interest in your site. Remember not to go in with your promotional guns firing. Offer advice and opinion and naturally mention your site as a reference, not as a promotion.
• Offer free materials like samples, ezines or e-docs to the viewers; these can be mentioned in your ads and your site. Remember to change these monthly.
• Offer a free product for testing your website or the product itself. This will provide with great feed back and promotionally you could use it for testimonial purposes. Remember to keep testers limited to a few and change the testing to something different as well as offer it to a different group. You will get fresh feedback and insight.
• Promote your site URL as part of your signature in emails or through any documents that are printed.
• Offline ads can include business cards, print ads or posters with your site information. These are great to leave posted on any bulletin boards or gathering places.

You should always be marketing and never assume that you have done enough. The more places your service is seen and if you are available and approachable you will be seen as validated in the eyes of the viewer.

As always and feedback or questions are always welcome, just click on my name below.

How to Brand Your Own Business

By Michelle Abreu

Their insight will surely help you get the most out of your marketing campaign.

4 - Look at your competition. It's good that you look at your competitions to determine how you are doing compared to them.

3 Must Use Tasks to Grow Your Business

By Corrie Petersen

Growing your business is a must when your only source of income is from your business. In order for this to happen, you must continually work your business. There are a number of ways to do this, but they need to be done on a regular basis.

1. Article Marketing

One of the most important things you need to do is article marketing. Writing articles and submitting them to article directories is what you need to do to make it happen. You can either do the writing yourself or you can hire a ghostwriter to make it happen. Your ghostwriter may be willing to submit the written articles to directories or you may need to hire a Virtual Assistant if you don't have time to do it yourself.

Article marketing promotes your business through the bio you include at the end of your article. You'll also be able to promote your business through the profile page you set up on the article directories. Most directories offer the profile so you'll need to make sure it's always current and that your links work.

2. Social Networking

Another important task you need to do to promote your business is to use social networking. Social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook are valuable when used correctly to promote your business. It's important to not only promote your business, but to communicate with others and offer tips to your followers. It's important to build trust with your followers and that won't happen if you only promote your business.

3. Blog

One last task you need to do regularly for your business is write on your blog. Your blog is a great way to share things about your business with your readers. These can be highlights about specific products or services, tips that will help your readers, and information about your field that will encourage your readers to use your business over someone else.

When you use these three tasks with your business, you're sure to see growth. While it's not going to be immediate, if you do it weekly at the least, you'll see it happen over time. It's important to find out how to do it correctly and these tips will help you to have a better understanding of how to do that so you can make it happen.
