TIME TO WRITE!

A blog is rendered useless if content is not updated regularly. Think of a blog as a journal or log for ideas or thoughts dealing with specific topics. Your blog can be about a wide variety of topics or it can be about niche topics like web design for example. Usually choosing a niche topic to blog about renders the best yield on user interactions. Once you have narrowed down a few key topics to write about the next step is to write.

Email marketing is, without doubt, the most effective form of marketing a business online. Social media is obviously effective too; though there is no substitute to delivering your message directly into someone’s inbox as most people check their inbox every day.

One of the most effective ways of increasing sign up rates to your email newsletter is to display a pop up message to visitors. These can be displayed immediately, or after a specified period of time, such as a certain number of page views or a certain number of seconds.
