Re: more clients for business

In reply to: Best tips for starting the new online business?

That depends on the type of business. Promoting a site of a local restaurant is quite different from promoting a site of a PC maker.
Better discuss this with the account manager of your advertising agency. I'm sure they will have good ideas.

Per suppose it is a technical writing or content generating firm then it must need advertising agency support or can rely on social media publicity.

Hey, that's me.

In reply to: Re: more clients for business

I did tech writing long ago and it was a full time job with a major company. Thinking about today I don't see this a career that would be something you would promote via social media. Here it''s still get the job and do the work.

So far the technical writing is still inside the company. Or it's done by the product design engineer.

Market your new online business on platforms where your target market has presence in. Be a contributor for blogs that are relevant to your business or answering top questions on Quora. Establish credibility by publishing relevant quality content on your website - whatever industry you are in. When you start getting good traffic to your content, setup a susbcription so you can have an email list of people who are genuinely interested in your products or services. Run a local Google Ad. Offer a discount on Facebook via paid ads. Attend networking events - yes, establishing human connections and marketing your business personally will never be outdated.

Participate in niche related blogs and forums. Blog commenting is still an effective way in order to get more clients for your business. But you have to focus more on content writing in blog commenting as we know that "Content is King".

Twitter is your best friend

In reply to: Best tips for starting the new online business?

USE TWITTER! it is the place for writers - follow your interests - tweet + retweet + whatever you gotta do. Increase your followers. Share your content. Make relations with people and take it from there.

Linkedin is also helpful but not as useful as twitter for writers.

Goodluck! wish you all the best.

Pay-Per-Click Marketing

In reply to: Twitter is your best friend

In the era of conventional advertising, it was tough for the local businesses to determine if their ads are reaching the right audience. Pay per click marketing has emerged as a magic stick for these businesses. You pay only when someone clicks on your ad. PPC makes it possible for the businesses to display their ads only when the chances of conversions are high. It has made advertising simple, effective and affordable for startups.

It solely depends on the type of business you are into. If you are into selling, go with content marketing by creating rich product reviews, point of sale tips. If you are into servicing, go with advertising through classifieds, forums, and more.
