How To Promote Your Site And Be Successful? Part 1
Friends I have been blogging on this site for about three months now. I have seen the good times and bad times equally. I have learnt a lot from my experiments that I have done over this period. Now I am trying to put in my years of experience plus the three months of experiment to use. My aim would be to achieve Alexa rank of less than 100,000 over the period of next 3 months. I will be writing about blog promotions and little things which go unnoticed and which if avoided or taken care of can help you be successful in the world of blogging. I will be writing approximately hundred posts in the next 3 months on how to effectively promote your site and make a reputation in the world of blogging. I hope you all will follow my tips and advice and be with me in my experiment to achieve success and in fact succeed yourself too.
So let us start the discussion right from the very basics of site building.
Plan your website:
Millions of websites are dedicated on every single topic that you can think of in the world of blogging. They are competing with each other to get the attention of the readers. In this competitive world how do you make your site stand out and how do you provide your readers with something that they want. Everyone has a website or a blog these days and calls himself / herself a marketer. Merely having a website does not make you a successful marketer.
Having a website and marketing yourself successfully on the internet are two different things that are often mistaken as the same thing. It is true that you need at least one website to market a product on the internet. A website is merely a collection of documents and media that are accessible to anyone using the internet. You need to customize your website according to your requirement; objectives and your target (market) audience. Internet marketing includes all the activities you perform in order sell your products or services – attract visitors to your website, encourage them to buy a product or service and make them coming back repeatedly to your website.
Having a website is a great boost to your online campaign but it is not useful if nobody knows about it. Just as having a brilliant idea is not useful unless you have sufficient resources to turn it into a real world model, a website will not be useful unless you have target audience visiting it.
Therefore, you need to keep in mind the following points in order to be successful in the world of internet marketing:
1.Define your short-term goals and your long-term goals.
2. Define the market you want to target and develop your online marketing strategy keeping them in mind.
3. Develop the methodology that is the most appropriate for your product or service.
If you are clear in your goals then you can achieve success in the end.
