Suggestion #1: Include a video that tells a unique story epipheo style or a similar version to the small one I made up here.<br />
Include testimonials that are not from large companies/major brands, but from customers and how they have put them to good use; provide mini-videos<br />
Possibly make this larger and/or put the FAQ and Contact up top.<br />
Additional Ideas:<br />“How-To” videos on creating extravagant designs. You can create a contest out of it and the best video(s) will be posted on the website<br />“Sign Up” button for a newsletter to keep people updated on new releases of products, revision to products, and blog updates.<br />Include a Twitter button on the website.<br />
Additional Ideas:<br />Sneak in Sales the Amazon Way<br />Replace “Customers Who Bought this Item Also Bought” with “Customers Who Bought this Item Created This” or “Customers Who Bought this Item Used It for This” (Create mini case studies of how people used BuckyBalls to relieve stress or introduced it as a group exercise at work, etc.).<br />
Social Media Ideas:<br /><ul><li>BLOGGING -Include a blog similar to the style of Zoomdoggle’s website that talks about not only your product but topics OUTSIDE of it (a perfect example is Starbucks’ fan page)
Blog about ways to stifle boredom at a 9 to 5; team building exercises using buckyballs; gifts during the holidays (great stocking stuffers); ways to relieve stress at work; ways to generate the creative juices; incorporate videos and pics from the fan page
Include articles that cater not only to “9 to 5ers” but also freelancers, people with home offices and/or small businesses</li></ul>* <br />
Social Media Ideas:<br /><ul><li>BLOGGING Continued –
Include news about other desktoys; the overall market for desktoys</li></ul>* <br />
Social Media Ideas:<br />* <br /><ul><li>FACEBOOK FAN PAGE- create more contests like the one you did on people’s creations with the Buckyballs.
Create a Flickr group/page where you can import all of the pics from you and your customers into your fan page
Create a Landing Page for the fan page. Make some of the contests visible to people who are not fans as a incentive for them to click on the “like” button. A great source to create landing pages is Facebook Tabsite.
Present contests in a more bold way by using Wildfire Promotion Builder. Here is an example.</li></li></ul><li>Social Media Ideas:<br />* <br /><ul><li>FACEBOOK FAN PAGE Continued-
Only post relevant posts to your FB community that they would like to read instead of every single post from the blog.
The list goes on….</li></li></ul><li>These are merely suggestions… you can take them or leave them.THANK YOU for your time!<br />@MoniqueOJohnson<br />http://www.linkedin.com/in/moniqueojohnson<br />
