Seecrets On Website Promotion: Marketing Plan For Joe Nogood Gift Store

Written by Stan Seecrets

Joe Nogood owns a small but thriving gift store. He is middle-aged and he dabbles inrepparttar stock market and has survived some major crashes in his time. He is an expert on gifts, having learnedrepparttar 147489 skills overrepparttar 147490 years. There is only one word to describe him, ordinary.

Joe has been studyingrepparttar 147491 internet for months, surveyingrepparttar 147492 battlefield, as he calls it. One day, he declared to Stan, his longtime buddy. "The dotcom bubble has bottomed out, I see that we are atrepparttar 147493 beginning of a new uptrend. Let’s build an online store".

Setting up a website is like setting up a business in a foreign land. Joe had to learnrepparttar 147494 foreign language (HTML, XML, PHP, Perl, CGI, Java, CSS, RSS).

The first stage was easy enough. They quickly decided on, it has a counterculture aura around it and a matching slogan as well - We’re Good at

Registering (domain name), finding a web-hosting company to host his site and finding a credit card processor to handlerepparttar 147495 credit card transactions were simple tasks. There are also some excellent open-source software that, with some basic knowledge, Joe and Stan built their website within two weeks.

The second stage is by farrepparttar 147496 toughest and will need stamina – website marketing and promotion. Having a website is like having a billboard pasted with your messages on an island. Now Joe needs visitors (hits) and bridges (links) to his little island.

When a consumer wants to find a product, 80% ofrepparttar 147497 time, this person will use a search engine. Joe’s website has to search-engine friendly - when a search is made for a product or service at, Joe want his website’s page to be inrepparttar 147498 top 20 rankings (top 10 would be ideal). This is Joe’s first-year marketing plan.

Sending 48 Free-Reprint Articles a year

Joe’s marketing plan needs him to write 48 articles a year. He understood that his articles have to be original, informative, entertaining and in plain language. With his buddy during an all-night brainstorming session they agreed on a few ideas.

A Brief History of Gift-Giving would be a good start. Gifts for Positive Response might be another – not corruption, you blockhead, think about a prelude to a marriage proposal or motivating a teenage student to excel in his studies. Romantics may like to read Gifts for Your Love;repparttar 147499 list goes on and on.

Perhaps, a possible topic may be Gift-Receiving Habits of Bushmen Americans,repparttar 147500 ones concentrated inrepparttar 147501 D.C. area. Bushmen use strange language like "I wish to caveat my response" which is hardly understandable byrepparttar 147502 public. A follow-up article like Bushmen Gifts –repparttar 147503 Impact on Iraq’s Economy may providerepparttar 147504 scholarly reputation for Joe, a must-read for think tanks aroundrepparttar 147505 world.

Publishing 4 Free E-books a year

Since Joe wrote an article a week, within three months, he will have enough material for an e-book. Knowingrepparttar 147506 hassles, he decides on a commercial website that can convert his articles into an EXE and PDF format and submit this free-for-download e-book torepparttar 147507 various depositories on his behalf.

Naturally, since this e-book is free, Joe inserted some messages on his products and services in a non-intrusive manner. Joe thought – an e-book-cum-catalog, what a clever idea. He wants to persuade without usingrepparttar 147508 ways used by in-your-face marketers. Joe wants his readers to know and believe he is true to his chosen slogan.

On publishing his first e-book and seeing a growing readership, Joe called his printers and ordered a fresh set of new name cards – Joe Nogood, Owner-Internet Writer-Author. Stan sensed a distinct glow about Joe’s demeanor since that moment.
