Figures I would get this when the Amazon Jungle is all changing. Now I can finally take my time and build content and not have to worry about those 3 pesky sales anymore. Yay Me!
It may not work the same for everyone, but I got all 3 sales in the same day and an extra one to boot.
How did I do it? I created a Twitter account with my brand as a handle and began posting my blogs. NO ONE Noticed me!
So I turned to the search bar and found users there that was posting stuff close to but not exactly what I was writing about. I followed them and watched what they was doing and how they was using hashtags to their advantage, so I started doing the same thing as I learn best by making mistakes, I figured I had nothing to lose. Turns out I was right this time, which never happens. I got a follower. Then another. People began reading my blogs. My traffic started to increase. Slowly, but increasing just the same. I was shocked.
I actually composed a blog about heat injury and hydration that day. A far stretch from my chosen niche but a serious issue facing towing operators in the summer months. I then went to bed as I normally do. I had 1 product linked in there. In fact, it was the only hyperlink in the entire article. I am almost embarrassed to say it was for a water bottle of all things. A collapsable water bottle that can fit in a backpack for under $10. I guess that silly hyperlink did it's thing, because when I woke up the next morning after sharing it (My Blog) on twitter, I sold 4 of them. I was a amazed. Not only because I sold 4 water bottles, it was because something I composed had enough value to at least 4 people out there that they clicked the link and made a purchase. People found value in something I wrote.
I guess what I am rambling about is, there is a water bottle in your future if you so choose. It was content that made it possible for me. IT will be content that makes it happen for you. Valuable content that you create will shape the path of your business. Content does not create itself and it is not easy, but it is possible. My advice to you is go forth and find your water bottle. Write about it and don't lose faith. It may take a while, but good things happen to those that wait.
I want to thank everyone who took time to read this. I would also like to the everyone who put together the core training program. Why you ask? Because less than 2 months ago, I knew absolutely nothing about creating a website, let alone a blog. I took a chance, and even if I never make another water bottle sale, I can sleep easy knowing I have it in me to succeed.
