James asks…

Any tips on getting customers for a new pet sitting business?

I’m 12 years old and have started a new pet sitting business. I have done everything so far, fliers, business cards, what else will attract customers?

SEO Tips:

With a business like that, I think you need to be really proactive. From what you mentiuoned above — the things you have done are all reactive.

By proactive, I mean you need to establish personal relationships with veterinarians and pet store owners. You need to get to know the key people at these places — and they need to know you, your compentcies and how much you care about doing a good job.

You might want to offer a luncheon for them that you host to talk about how you are better or uniquely different. What are the things that result in you being the place a pet owner would choose when in need of your services? What do you do to bring value? That all needs to be communicated and demonstrated to them. Ask them to attend this luncheon and ask them to bring at least one of their clients who would benefit by knowing about your services.

You’ll need to spend some money on them and show them what you do.

Establish a testimonial book with letters of recommendation from other satisfied users of your service. You’ll need to solicit these from people and maybe even help them write the letter — but this will really help you out when talking to others.

Another thing is to be a real visible presence at dog shows. This is going to take more time to develop — but these would be people who will use your services if you can show them how good of a job you will do for them when they need some time away.

Does your flier really stand out? It needs to be similar to what a top tier hotel would put out.

Do you have a web site? You need one so they can see what you do that is better or different. You can send out newsletters and establish a drip marketing program through the email addresses.

Shoot a video — of the things you do when pet sitting. It is relatively inexpensive to do and run copies, but that is better than a flier.

One thing I didn’t see in the things you have tried is any kind of media advertising. Are you listed in the phone book’s yellow pages in an attractive ad? Do you advertise in the newspaper in an ongoing way? Do you advertise in dog publications like the fliers that pet shows put out?

You can try any or all of these things — the key is to differentiate yourself through a personal relationship.

Sandy asks…

Does anyone know how I should start scrapbooking?

I have never done any scrapbooking and need some tips. Please help

SEO Tips:

To start there are a few supplies you’ll need….

A scrapbook – there are several kinds out on the market but it seems that the most popular kind are the drop in page kinds (more explanation later); they come in several sizes – 6X6, 8X8, 8 1/2 X 11, and 12 X 12. Personally I prefer the 12 X 12 because you can put several photos on one 12 X 12 page.

Card stock – this is what you will use to create your pages. You will want to select card stock that is quality and lignin and acid free. You want the hard work you put into your albums to last for years to come. If you use inferior card stock it could ruin your photos rather than protect them.

A note here about card stock…it’s best to select card stock and decorative paper from one particular line of products because doing so will ensure quality of product across the board and the colors will coordinate better.

Speaking of color – here’s another tip – choose only 3-4 coordinating colors to use in your scrapbook in addition to white or vanilla. It will create a cohesive look through the whole book which will make it look very put together.

A cutter – I recommend one with a 12″ cutting capability. No matter what size album you choose there are a lot of pretty decorative papers on the market that only come in 12X12 size. You must have a cutter this size to be able to cut the paper smaller. A lot of solid color card stocks also come in this size so you will need to cut that too sometimes.

Adhesive – again make sure you choose a quality product that is safe for photos. You will also want to make sure that you can purchase refills for your adhesive. This is probably the one item you will end up spending the most money on over time. Personally I prefer the Dotto repositionable adhesive. Refills are easy to find and about the same price at most places and should you ever decide to remove a photo you can easily do so with this adhesive. It is made for use in scrapbooks.

A pen for journaling the stories you have to tell in your scrapbook. Again make sure it is safe and will last. Don’t use a regular ball point pen. They are not safe for protecting your photos and never write on the back of your photos with one as the ink has been known to leach through to the front of the photo ruining the picture.

I want to say here that journaling and writing your stories with in your own handwriting is really important. Your family will treasure the time you took to write the titles and information. On some pages you’ll want to put a title but not every page needs one.

Another thing to remember is that you don’t need to scrapbook every photo. Choose anywhere from one to 6 per event or milestone. Don’t be afraid to crop them to get rid of distractions and to emphasize the focal point of the photo.

Scissors – you’ll need scissors for doing longer cuts and well as a pair for doing some detailed cutting.

Okay from there you can add all kinds of things – ribbon, eyelets, stickers, rubber stamps & ink, buttons, rub-ons, brads, flowers made for putting in scrapbooks, die cuts, punched shapes, etc.

There is one simple rule to remember – the photos are what should stand out on the page not the decorations around them.

To help achieve that goal of making the photos the focal point of the page you will want to matte them. All this means is putting a piece of card stock behind the photo that is from 1/4″ to 1/2″ larger around than your photo. Then put your photo on the page. Sometimes you might want to double matte the photo but only sometimes.

For all kinds of ideas and where to go from these basics there are some places you have access to…

Split Coast Stampers is a web site full of ideas for scrapbookers and rubber stampers.

They have 3 scrapbook challenges each week which have no deadline but is a source of ideas. They also have a gallery of finished scrapbook pages.

To see the page ideas go to Forums (top right of page) scroll down to Challenges and then click on the sub heading of scrapbooking.

To see completed pages other people have done go to the Gallery (top right of page) and scroll down to scrapbooking. Click and there you go lots of different ideas.

The web site also had ideas and instructions for making your own scrapbooks. To find them there are a couple of places to go to – Resources (top right of page) Then scroll down the list. Some of the items listed are instructions for different techniques but there are plenty of project ideas there too with tutorials.

The other place to go to on the web site is the Gallery then scroll down to Anything but a Card. Click. Then scroll down to Handmade albums, etc. There you go more ideas for making your own scrapbooks.

Another resource for page ideas and such is your local library. There are a lot of books out there about scrapbooking. There are also several magazines about scrapbooking too so wander over to the magazine section to see if your library has any of those for you

Joseph asks…

What is a thermostat and how does it work?

I’m working on a paper with a whole bunch of definitions but i cannot find this answer in the web!! help please.

SEO Tips:

A thermostat is a device for regulating the temperature of a system so that the system’s temperature is maintained near a desired setpoint temperature. The thermostat does this by controlling the flow of heat energy into or out of the system. That is, the thermostat switches heating or cooling devices on or off as needed to maintain the correct temperature.

A thermostat may be a control unit for a heating or cooling system or a component part of a heater or air conditioner. Thermostats can be constructed in many ways and may use a variety of sensors to measure the temperature. The output of the sensor then controls the heating or cooling apparatus.

Common sensors include:
Bi-metallic mechanical or electrical sensors
Expanding wax pellets
Electronic thermistors and semiconductor devices
Electrical thermocouples

Works of thermostat:
When it’s cold, we walk over and turn up the thermostat, and when it is hot, we walk over and turn on the air conditioner to cool us down. But, how does that little box on the wall actually control the temperature of our homes or offices?

A mechanical thermostat is actually a very simple device. It is basically a thermometer attached to a switch that turns on your heater, whether your heat source is natural gas or electricity. If you remove the cover of your thermostat, you will see the inner workings and get a better idea of how a thermostat works.

The top layer holds a mercury switch and a thermometer coil. The mercury switch is just a small vial filled with the liquid metal, mercury. Within this vial are three wires: one at the bottom of the vial; one at the left of the vial; and one at the right of the vial. As the temperature rises or cools, the vial of mercury gets tipped to the right or the left making the corresponding wire come into contact with the wire that runs along the bottom. If the mercury gets tipped to the left, a connection is made that creates a current that energizes a relay, which starts the heater and circulation fan. As the room heats up, the vial levels off and once that is in balance, the connection is broken causing the heater to turn off. If the mercury switch is tilted to the right, another relay causes the air conditioner to turn on.

What tips the vial in either direction is the thermometer coil that rests against the vial of mercury. The thermometer coil is constructed of a bi-metallic strip made of two different types of metal, usually copper and iron, which are bonded together. Because the different metals respond to heat at different levels, this strip contracts and expands causing the coil to curl up or uncurl as the temperature changes. This curling or uncurling motion tilts the mercury vial, which then signals the heating source to kick off or on. When you adjust the temperature knob on your thermostat, you are actually adjusting the tightness of the coil.

Beneath the top layer of your thermostat, you will see the circuit board, which houses the wires that actually lead to the circulation fan and heat source. The circuit board is connected to the mercury switch via a metal screw and wire, which “reads” the switch and turns on the appropriate heating or cooling device.

Newer on the market are digital thermostats. These thermostats differ from the mechanical thermostats in that they use a thermistor, a resistor whose electrical resistance changes with temperature. The microcontroller in a digital thermostat measures the resistance and converts that number to a temperature reading. Digital thermostats can save energy because they can be programmed to turn the heat or air conditioning off or on at preset times throughout the day. For example, you can set the air conditioning to come on an hour before you come home from work, or have the heater remain off during the hours while you work and then turn on an hour before you get back so your home is warm and cozy when you open the door.

How to build an effective content marketing strategy with Lee Odden at SES San FranciscoHow to build an effective content marketing strategy with Lee Odden at SES San Francisco
Jamie O’Donnell, SEO-PR, interviews Lee Odden, TopRank Online Marketing, on the subject of content marketing at SES San Francisco 2010. Marketers typically try to capture content based on demand, according to Lee. But in using a content marketing strategy, marketers should be identifying buyer personas and analyzing the information consumption needs and preferences of consumers, and optimize for it. Lee describes it as putting the customer first rather than the behavior first. Lee says in order to create a content marketing strategy marketers must create an editorial plan, similar to a publisher, and know first how they are going to promote it once it is published. Then Lee describes the various search channels that marketers must integrate into their online content marketing strategy starting off with Google and YouTube. Then it’s a battle between the number of queries logged by Twitter and the various third party real-time applications such as TweetDeck, plus search engines, Yahoo and Bing. Lee then elaborates on the possible reasons why marketers have been late into the game when it comes to integrating the social media platform, YouTube, as part of their overall content marketing strategy. To implement an effective content marketing strategy, Lee says businesses must become familiar with the search results for their target keyword phrases and constantly monitor the search and social media landscape to see what is being featured about them and their products.

Linda asks…

How do I search out different customers to pay different prices?

Tavis answers:

There are many different strategies for accomplishing this, but you should keep in mind that you need to show demonstrable respect and concern for both segments of your customers – you don’t want your customers willing/able to pay more feeling as though they are not being treated fairly any more than you want your customers unable to pay more feeling the same way.

Coupons/discounts – Offering your clients or certain community members discounts or coupons for your products is a simple way to make your products affordable to a subset of customers.

Sliding scale – Many nonprofits have incorporated a sliding scale based on income into their pricing strategy. When using this tactic, you have to take into account how much effort you can put into enforcing the sliding scale, since income is difficult to verify. One good example of this tactic is a tax-preparation clinic for low-income individuals which charges below-market prices on a sliding scale – in this case, verifying income is easy.

Periodic discounting – This is a traditional retail concept – think about the post-Christmas sales. In this case, price-sensitive customers will attend your sale (even though you are selling goods far in advance of the season when most customers think to buy: say, bathing suits in December), and customers who can afford it will wait until a more convenient time to shop.

Second market discounting – This is an increasingly common strategy for manufacturers who have excess capacity – think outlet stores. This is best done when there is some geographic distance between your store and the second market store – you don’t want your customers who are willing to pay more going to your second market store.

How to get More Recognition on Youtube as a Rapper?

Now don’t treat this as every other similar question because my case is a little bit different. I have been told many times by many people that I have enough skill in rapping to become famous. I also have taken much initiative to promote myself, and even have a small team of promoters promoting me as well. My popularity has recently risen GREATLY but the growth is slowing down as I feel I have saturated the market in my area. Me and my team have posted several of my videos on facebook at least 30 times. I have started branching out to twitter, but that’s a work in progress. I have done everything from tags to video responses so all the little tricks and tips I know have been used. I also have resorted to spamming my video on other videos, but I feel the fact that I have talent makes up for the spamming. How do I take the next step and branch out to fans who do not know me personally? I feel like a rocket quickly rising but I need to take this next leap. Please only good advice I’m determined to make it big, and I have the tools to do so. If you wanna check out one of my songs for context, you can find it here:

Daniel asks…

What do you think are the most effective marketing strategies for a small business just starting out?

Tavis answers:

There is actually no perfect formula for effective marketing strategy, regardless of the business size. However, I suggest that you need to be spontaneous about your marketing efforts. You should also learn the power of viral marketing— this perhaps, is the most effective and fastest way to market your business. In doing this, you could start marketing your business to your relatives and friends, and ask them a favor to recommend your business to their friends and colleagues. You should also be able to supply your marketing efforts with printed materials like business cards, leaflets, posters, etc. Also, having a website helps too. Try making a simple one and submit your url to search engines and directories. Goodluck!

If you predict the stock market will go down, where should you invest your money?

Gold doesn’t always reflect the opposite of the stock market.

Should you just put your money in a savings bond?
even the bond stocks got hit during the crash.

doing “put options” where you’re betting the stock goes down is too risky because there’s no upper limit to what you can lose.

Tavis answers:

This is an incredibly complex question that opens up a whole new can of worms, that most investors can’t possibly understand. Where you’re heading now requires much more knowledge and experience than the average investor possesses.

First, we don’t make “predictions” as investors/traders like they do on TV. That’s just TV drama. Nobody, not one person, can foretell the future price or direction of a stock or market. But I think we know what you mean. If you think price is going lower . . .

“doing “put options”” limits your risk to the amount invested. You are confused about “no upper limit to what you can lose.” You are probably thinking of selling short. Use Investopedia to define financial terms:

There are several ways to profit from a down market, including inverse ETF’s, shorting a stock, buying puts on stocks or index, or even selecting a proxy like a currency ETF, or shorting futures.

Technically, shorting the market or betting on it going down is no longer “investing.” You are entering the world of “trading.” This is as comprehensive, confrontational, and competitive as it gets; a different world that beats 90% of the people that try it. You’re no longer in Kansas, Todo.

Investing guru Warren Buffett stays within his circle of competency, and so should you. Trading and timing the market is absolutely not for investors. Investors better wait for good trends to develop.

That said, if you have been in cash, you will have enough fire power to get in at excellent prices. Just an opinion, but I think we are not at the end game stage yet and we will see one more upswing before everything starts to unravel. The intermediate term cycle does not bottom till Mid-July but very short term cycle is bottoming just about now. If you are going to enter the world of trading, you have to adhere to good trading strategies, and now is not the time to short anything. If you want to short something, or do something else exotic like buying puts, do that on a market rally.

While you may not be able to time the market, you can take advantage of a declining market by snapping up great stocks at discounted prices. Who doesn’t love a clearance sale? This year’s roller-coaster market has pushed many big-name stocks significantly off their 52-week highs.

Microsoft and Cisco Systems, for instance, are off their 52-week highs by around 25 percent. Yahoo! Is off its high by more than 30 percent, while AIG, Motorola and Sprint are off by more than 50 percent.

Susan asks…

How to achieve maximum billing & highest productivity as a Single Recruiter?

My firm specialises in executive search and recruitments for the middle and senior management positions. We’re planning to add a branch office at a new location. To begin with it will have a single recuiter and depending upon how business goes, we will add more. My question is what should a single recruiter do to achieve maximum billing? What should be the overall strategy? How should he position himself in the market? Should a single recruiter do more middle positions (as there are numbers) or should he do more senior positions? or should he do both? Should he specialise in a single domain and make all his database specific to that domain or industry? or should do he do fresh research for the positions that he receives from the client side? We work on a lot of senior positions in multiple domains. In such cases, profiles are not available in the database and most of the time, we have to do fresh research specifically catering to the need of that position. The billings are decent being senior positions, but it takes time to close, the process is slow. After client has selected his choice of candidate, we are left with a pipeline of senior candidates that goes waste and we’re unable to use them. My question is how can a single recruiter achieve maximum billing, increase productivity and be able to place the maximum out of his database and his research. Should he focus on single domain or multiple domain, middle or senior levels, how many number of clients should he handle at a time? Please share your experience, views and observations.

Tavis answers:

You need to build resources with as little effort as possible.

A lot of college graduates are already professionals upgrading their education (like me), and contacting instructors is a way of getting applicants in the door who already have some of the qualifications you need.

Instructors are not allowed to single out students, though, the only thing they can do is put out announcements to their classes.

How do I make an account on Pottermore?

Well I went on and I searched EVERYWHERE and I can’t find any link to make an account. Also, where is the Sorting Hat test? Thanks for answers! And NO HATERS!

Tavis answers:

“Pottermore is currently only available to those who are part of the Beta.”
-> you can’t register.

I have a beta account but it’s really crappy and useless. I am a big fan of the books and movies but that page seemed really unnecessary and for 8-year-olds. Not sure if that helps you but you really aren’t missing out on much. It’s just a marketing strategy: Make something rare and everyone will want it.

//EDIT: When you get an account and log in the sorting hat will sort you into one of the houses. The houses can gather points and “win” in a browsergame-like environment by brewing potions and stuff.

Helen asks…

How can i start learning about stocks/shares market?

I am a complete newbie. I want to start investing in shares/stocks.Can u guys suggest a good place to start like an online share account or any good books. something like ABCD of shares/stocks. And how much percentage of my income should I invest in shares. I am below 30 yrs so I am willing to take some risk.

Tavis answers:

Shares of stock is what you would buy and sell to make money. You do that through a stock broker. Or you can invest in mutual funds through a mutual fund family. You buy it at a price and sell it at a higher price or you sell short at price and buy it back at a lower price to be profitable. You need to position size through money management and not load the boat on one issue. And use stop losses for risk management. There is no guarantee you will make money.

You will have to develop your trade plan or system that tells you when to buy and when to sell. You can use company fundamentals or stock price technicals or a combination of both. Your broker should have some educational resources and stock scanning tools. Check those first and then sign up for free at moneyshow.com and place topics in the search box to get the links to those free videos and podcasts for you to watch and listen.

You can open an account with an online discount stock broker and use their resources to educate yourself and scan for stock picks. First paper trade those picks on their virtual/paper trading account to get a hang of buying and selling and to see if your strategy is making you money consistently.

Steve Jobs introduces the Steve Jobs introduces the “Digital Hub” strategy at Macworld 2001
On January 9, 2001, Steve Jobs gave one of his greatest Macworld keynote presentations. The main topics included the original version of Mac OS X, the original SuperDrive and the original widescreen PowerBook G4. But perhaps the most profound was the introduction of the “Digital Hub” concept in which the Mac would evolve into becoming the center of the digital lifestyle of the 21st century. It has been the subject of much discussion by Steve and his substitutes when talking about the Mac ever since. This definitely the beginning of something huge. iMovie had already been around since 1999 and Steve introduced the original versions of iTunes and iDVD at this keynote. Interesting to note that in the second part of this video Steve refers to iTunes as “iMusic” – perhaps a code name during production? It’s amazing that as soon as Steve started on this topic everyone was spellbound and there was no applause from the audience for a good 11-12 minutes, quite possibly the longest gap between applauses in Stevenote history.

David asks…

Why does Google slap my new site for a good part of the day?

Just published a clean directory with more than 3000 unique pages and realized, that Google “deindexes” most pages during working hours. During the day, there are about 60 pages in the Google index, and during nighttime all 3000. This changes daily — is this some Pandaupdate thingy? Any suggestions?

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

It’s because content is duplicate or not so useful for humans to read.

Paul asks…

How to increase Google Page Rank of a site?

Hi! If any one provide the answer how to increase Google Page Rank of a site?

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

Page Rank is calculated by inbound links and outbound links to your website,
since the introduction on the Google Panda Update many sites have lost Page Rank.

This is due to previously placed backlinks losing value. Google in an effort to place newer content on the front pages sites that have newer and updated content has gained PageRank. Creating more inbound links to your site by placing comments on websites that are producing new content from April 2011 will increase your ranking as these sites have gained in page rank. When you find a site that has new content post comments on as many pages as you can. Be careful that the owner doesn’t delete your comments for spamming. This a good way to build organic backlinks to your site.

Chris asks…

How can I get noticed on youtube without playing cover songs?

I am a singer-songwriter and I want to promote my original songs on youtube, I have made a good start (about 13,500 video views) but I can’t seem to get much momentum going. I know people who have 20 times the views/subscribers etc on their page, just from playing covers. Are there any tips to attracting viewers / subscribers?

Thanks

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

Well the luck plays it’s part on this!! But I’m going to tell u something! If u put the idea on your mind and u worked really really hard on it! You will get it !! There is nothing impossible in this life!! As I see their videos getting a lot of views, they don’t seem to be special ( or very talented) even gives me a feeling that anybody who is serious about making videos can actually get a lot of views.
You can greatly increase your YouTube views by following basic optimization tips:
1. Title: optimize titles so that they get better search engine results plus get a lot of views on YouTube.
2. Thumbnails: Select a compelling thumbnail that catches eyes.
3. Don’t make an Ad(only for commercial purpose): if your video doesn’t provide any value it won’t be viewed again and again.
4. Be innovative: Innovative videos spread like a virus on social networking sites and easily get on the front page of YouTube. So be creative, be funny.
5 .Optimize tags: Ensure proper tagging to get better position in search results.
6.Social networking: use twitter,facebook,Myspace to promote…
7. Your personal blog: set up a website or a blog. Direct people from videos to blog also vice versa.
8.Use other video sites: use the power of Daily Motion, MetaCafe and other video sites.
9.Never Ever give up: Even if your initial attempts fail, do yourself a favour, don’t give up.

There is a great resource named “How to get more youtube views in 24 hours or less by Ryan hanks”

Betty asks…

How can I promote my website without spending any money on advertising?

If anyone knows what the best free web submission site is, it would be a great help. I have also tried advertising using blog software but this does not seem to be helping. Any helps and links would be helpful.

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

Web advertising is a continuous thing. It’s not often that you’d get one link and VIOLA – traffic come pouring in. It takes months to get your site visible out there. Just make sure that you dedicate AT LEAST 1 hour per day marketing your site – whether writing press releases, participating in forums, etc.

Successful marketing is always a combination of many things — great content, good search engine rankings, listings in key websites, press releases, etc.

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you get for FREE! Here are some recommend this site scripts (many are free) that you can use http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.” http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News. My website (see my profile) accepts free press release submission (no strings attached!)

5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

6. Improve your conversion (if you are selling a product). Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article “10 Ways to Convert Visitors to Buyers” http://www.powerhomebiz.com/072005/conversion.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

7. Promote your blog (if you have a blog). Here is a comprehensive list of sites where you can promote your blog or RSS feeds http://www.powerhomebiz.com/onlinemarketing/blogs.htm

Susan asks…

How can i drive more traffic to my Hubs on HubPages?

I have watched many videos and done relevant keyword research, made sure there was relevant content in the article and around 1000 words, made sure there weren’t many pages already listed on google and that the search term had around 2000 searches per month. Added 3 pictures and 2 videos and some relevant links and tags and still only getting around 6 views a day?

Any tips or advice is welcome.

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

With the help of search engine optimization you can get the proper traffic on your hub pages. Back links are the most important part to get traffic. Submit your blogs and blog spot links on various high PR sites. So with affordable investment you will get the proper viewers on your blog spot.

Thomas asks…

How do i build up a forum with absolutely nothing on it?

I have a forum all about droid devices. I do know alot about electronics and stuff but i’m sure people don’t want to go on a forum to see threads from just one person. When I visit other forum’s it’s more to see other people’s opinions not just one. That’s what blogs are for… So how do I pull people to my forum? Just some tips would be fine.

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

Im a webmaster and have been doing it for 10 years. What you need to do is attract people via search engines, and convince your visitore that your forum is the place to be. If it was easy, there’d be 3489238479283749283742 forums related to your topic, which is obviously impossible. Work on search engine optimization, and your front page should be helpful. If you can impress people on your website, they’ll follow a link to your forum and its all uphill from there. Good luck
