what is on your site that would make people want to bookmark it, save it to favorites to keep coming back to look at it? do you have coding on your site or a sentence to tell your customers to bookmark it to come back for upgrades and changes? why should you? glad you asked.
your site has to have something in it to 'make' your customers pick you out from the rest of the web. you need something to keep them coming back and saying, oh ya, i need ____ i have that bookmarked in my favorites....
when i was first starting out my baby business i had my site looking perfect, but, no one was shopping it. drove me nuts. so, (on the advice of ms cyndi) i ran a contest, gave away one of my 4 pc baby sets. if people signed up for my once a month newsletter, they were entered in the contest. i had mamaflee write me a page for the entry form, and the contest only ran for one week, thank goodness becuase i had over 2000 unique email address entries........ i ran the contest on http://www.contestalley.com/
and a site that i don't think it running now. but anyway, they point is. i had over 2000 people at my site looking it over for a week. after that i was getting orders from people that had book marked my site and things took off from there.
think about it today.... it's a process, you can't just say, contest, you have to be set up for it. but start the process, think about it, lets bat the idea around and play with it, lets get some brain cells working!!!
have a great week ladies!!
