Cozy Up to Customers and Grow Your Business

Everyone loves a gift, if you give them an ebook, something to help educate them on what you are about or on what you want to talk to them about then you can indoctrinate them into your way of thinking easier!
I give away gift certificates, gift cards, ebooks, but I especially like the gift cards…they are worth $12.00 and you can take them to the auctions and win things. They are very popular right now…if you would like a gift card, just let me know in by click on this link and I will get one to you! http://www.tripleclicks.com/detail.php?item=173941

I was so excited about my new wordpress blog and wanted the world to know, so I hit publish and waited…..nobody came….nobody heard me! Until I found what was wrong, 3 things I neglected to do before marketing my blog!
“Jumping straight into promoting your blog like that is a bit like a new cupcake business carpet-bombing their entire neighborhood with leaflets saying “buy our great cupcakes” before thinking about who they want to market to and what they want to say in their marketing.” Ian Brodie wrote in his article “Stop! 3 Things You Must Do Before Marketing Your Blog”!
You must find out what or who is your target audience and target them with your advertising…you know that targeting middle agers and elderly people with baby products is wrong and will get you no where….
You must know your audience, their needs and their likes and dislikes, so knowing your customer or potential customer will prevent a lot of mistakes, not only costly in time but costly money wise.
see Ian Brodie’s article for all the details, this is a superb article and one much needed for new bloggers…Thanks Ian for such a good article.
