  • CONTENT : Content is king. There is evergreen content but that only goes so far. Been there seen that. What do you have for me today? It is the heart of every good website and serves multiple purposes. The first purpose is to educate prospects and build expertise. This is why blogs are so heralded. A well-written blog can help you stand out from the competition and educate your prospects. Each time you write a post it gets a title, category, tags, and a description and its own address on your server which is then available for anyone on the Internet to Find. When you write the content on YOUR SITE, you then PUSH it out to Google ( automatically since you have sent your site to Google and they are automatically notified when you have new content, It goes on Linked-in, your Facebook Page, and Twitter. You send it to Digg and Stumble upon. You submit the article to a group or two that you belonged to on Linked-In and all of this Drives People and the Search Engine Bots to your site. Make em Laugh, Make em Mad, Make em Think, Be outrageous, Be provocative, in order to: Get Linked to by others. This sends more people to your site and gives you a higher search engine ranking for your key words. You want eyeballs- but then what do you do when you have them. First Impressions. Returning Visitors – Unlikely people act right away. Give them something. Amuse them, Inform them, Comfort them, Offer them a reason to come back. Get their e-mail addresses. Develop “Your Fans”, Seth Godin calls it ”Your Tribe”, “Your Peeps”
