WordPress has made it easy for anyone to publish a blog. You install the software, a theme, some plugins and you are ready to go. You can choose an E-commerce Theme that will enable you to sell directly from your blog, without struggling with shopping cart software.

Start your online business out in the right way. It is not enough to simply throw together a site based on your interests. You have to do more than hope to sell products to people who like the same things you do. You must research various niches, build a marketing plan, and design either a mini site or a content site. In addition, you have to have to design a site that has professional graphics, well-written copy, and clean navigation. If your site is built around well-researched keywords, placed in the right places, search engines spiders will begin to index your page.

For example, there are programs to find people for you to follow. But they will only LIST those people; you have to go through and ‘follow’ them yourself. TweetAdder allows you to search for people to follow by tweets, their bio, location (zip code, city,state), or even following the followers of specific members. You choose how many you want to follow, click the mouse, and TweetAdder not only finds the people, but it automatically SIGNS YOU UP as a follower. You can set it and walk away.

When constantly creating marketing messages for your business it’s very easy to lose sight of what’s important – your customers. Keep them in the forefront of your mind and you won’t go too far wrong.
