Marketing Ideas

Postby Brismom » Thu Apr 23, 2009 7:14 pm

I am looking for some ideas on the best ways to drive traffic to a website selling physical products.

How do you find the right people and places to market to?

Any marketing ideas would be excellent! Thanks!

Are we looking to drive traffic to your kid's chair site? Maybe ads or guest blogging on some parenting sites would be helpful.

Are you looking for ideas in addition to the marketing tips you shared that you already do in these threads here and here.

Just noticed that you had replied a few times with marketing ideas you currently use and I thought they were good especially blogging.

Marketing is a subject I need to work on myself.

Yep, you've definitely listed some good ways in those other two posts that Angie has pointed out.

Another one to think about might be article marketing - not sure if you mentioned that or not.

Also - joining some 'Mom' forums - just as yourself, as a mom. Not as a marketer. If you go in marketing, you will get nowhere.

One thing that comes to mind, for me, in my case - is that I'm often looking for that 'magic' secret ONE thing that is gonna be IT. (This all just came to me....) Like I'm always looking for the BEST thing - that one true thing that is gonna skyrocket my business. But the truth is the secret is.....


Man! I am SO bad at that! If I would just take these handful of things I already know and consistently implement them - guess what? I'd have some success!

Gawd, this being in business for yourself really is personally eye-opening. I have so little self-discipline in the area of consistency. Argh.

Keep doing it. Keep doing it. Keep doing it.

My new mantra.

Thank you for the replies. Yes I was looking for additional ideas on marketing.
I do a series of things now. I am always looking for other ways that I may not know yet.

I do agree that consistency is definitely key in marketing.

One of the hottest forums around is the WAHM forum. I am glad that I am a member of that particular one, too. Of course, my second son is fixing to graduate from HS, BUT I will always be a MOM!!!

Thank you for the post!

Video marketing is a great way to market your home business. Google gives much attention and traffic to videos theses days. A Free Tool that will upload your videos to various sites is called

There are also ways to do a video without showing your face. I will be doing a tutorial on how to do that real soon.

Hope this helps.
