Give Freebies to Your Readers

No matter what your product or service, you need to publish content on your SimpleSite that provides value for your visitors. When you give them educational information in exchange for their visits, they’ll be likely to return to your site over and over. Everyone loves freebies.
  • Photographers – Create a gallery of your photos. You might also include photos from competitors. If you do that, your visitors will understand that you have their best interests in mind.
  • Life coaches – In addition to information about how to buy your service, write and publish articles that educate your visitors about how to improve their lives. When they see that they can get information for free at your site, they’ll be back again and again.
  • Cooks – Put some of your favorite recipes on your site, and visitors will be inclined to buy your cookbook.
  • Crafts people – Publish photos of items that you want to sell. In addition, publish free instructions on craft items that your readers might like to make.
If you need ideas about what freebies to make for your visitors, go to forums on your topic to see what problems people are talking about, answer their questions, and direct them to your site.

Be Consistent

Success doesn’t happen overnight. People who seemed like ‘overnight successes’ generally worked long and hard to become successful.

You will probably need to do the same. Continue being seen on social media, but don’t spread yourself too thin. Be realistic about how many social media accounts you can post on consistently – probably just one or two.

Publish valuable content regularly on your site. Every time you do that, be sure to direct people from your social media accounts to your website.

Don’t get discouraged and don’t give up. Consistency will pay off, but that won’t happen overnight. Make a promise to yourself that you’ll follow through until success is yours.
