HOW TO BOOST THE SITE TRAFFIC OF YOUR ONLINE CRAFT STORE

June 26, 2010 | Comments Off on HOW TO BOOST THE SITE TRAFFIC OF YOUR ONLINE CRAFT STORE

There are many places to sell your crafts online but the possibility to get noticed by many people around the globe is very small. Selling is not the only thing that you can do to have more customers. There are other ways to increase the number of guests visiting your site.

JOIN FORUMS AT CRAFTSTER.ORG

Craftster.org is a website for crafters around the world. Anyone who is involved in arts and crafts can join and make friends with. It is the best place to advertise and promote online products by posting comments and answering questions of other crafters there, and using the URL of your online shop as your signature. You can also post pictures of your creations for other crafters to see. Crafters that you will meet in the forum might befriend you, critique your products or give you lots of advice and ideas to help you succeed in your chosen craft. Be an open-minded person and accept new ideas shared by your fellow crafters.

WRITE ARTICLES FOR OTHER SITES

Share your knowledge and ideas to everyone. You will not only help others out there, you will also earn a few bucks in doing that. You can write tutorials on making some crafts you have in your online shop. Of course, always post the URL of your online store at the end of your article to link your products or shop. Try submitting your articles at any of these sites: ehow.com, Wikipedia.org or howtodothings.com and be surprised of the great outcome.

INCLUDE CONTENT IN YOUR SITE

Writing articles for your site would surely attract guests to visit your site. Post some tutorials that can be easily followed by young and old. You can also include free downloads of templates or post video of some of your tutorials. Visitors will come and go but the visibility of your site to the public can be a great start to have possible customers. Let your clients have something to look forward to in your site. Make sure to post at least thrice a week to keep your guests updated.

PROVIDE BUSINESS CARDS

Who says you do not need one because your business is online? Anyone who has a business should provide his/her target customers a business card. Include in the card your name, contact number and the kind of business that you have. Hand it to everyone you meet and make it a habit. You will soon be delighted of the outcome.

PUT YOUR BUSINESS ON ADS

Tell the world that you are in business. If you have money to spend, have your advertisement in the local classified ads or have your name listed in the yellow pages. You can also use free websites on the web that offer free posting of advertisement. All you have to do is research.

If you want your online shop to be known on the World Wide Web, exert a lot of effort in doing so. Do not just sit there and wait for buyers. They will not come to you that easy. Hard work is the key.
