How to Get More Targeted Visitor Traffic to Your Jewelry Blog Or Website and Make More Sales

“How do I promote my jewelry website?” is one way of saying, “how do I get more traffic to my jewellery website?” Jewelry blogs often do less than they might regarding attracting visitors, and ultimately customers. The world wide web is more than a way to post photographs and be an extension of one’s business card. If you know how, you can make a website which will draw visitors from the millions of folks searching on the net.

Getting Found by Searchers…

My personal favorite means of getting more traffic to my website is by building keyword focused content pages for getting free search engine traffic. Since folks are generally interested in information on the net, rather than searching for products, this is the better way to get both longterm traffic, and also to build non-salesy connection with your audience first, after which you can obtain the sale later.

The Good news and the Not So Great News About This Traffic Tactic

The good news? If you do it right, this will make certain you get traffic totally free over the long term. Once you set the wheels in motion, if you keep making keyword focused pages, after awhile the only way to switch off the site visitors will be for you to take your internet site down altogether. The bad news? For this strategy to work, you need some patience. This is simply not a get-traffic quick scheme. It will build and grow with time. Okay, Christine, then How Do I Promote my Website with Content?”

Here’s how in a very small nutshell:

Just create content for both search engines like google, and for humans. Be sure the pages are search engine optimized with a keyword phrase that is high in searches but less competitive pages. You would like your content to be both keyword focused, and enjoyable and readable for your visitors.It’s really important to remember that people are buying not the search engines. Make sure you use good sense and give people value as well as optimizing your keyword focused content.

That’s all you have to do to start getting discovered by the major search engines and begin getting targeted visitors for free. The key is to make plenty of these pages and start building a network of relevant pages related to your products in a direct, and indirect way. The key is to please your market. If you can make useful contributions to your market, you will start to be noticed not by the engines, but by people too – and that will start to get you backlinks you don’t even search for ourself. Before you know it, you should have more visitors than you know what to do with.

Promote Your Bead Jewelry Blog

Congratulations on putting up a bead jewelry blog of your own! You have begun posting photos of your bead jewelry and you probably even have a few funny stories and maybe a link to your online store, but you’ve noticed that you’re not getting many comments or even visitors.

How can you get more people to visit your site? Here are some great tips:

1. Cross Promotion: Here’s an obvious one that often gets overlooked: include your website address and email address on all of your printed material you make for your bead jewelry business, including business cards, flyers and even informational cards you might include bead jewelry you’ve sold. There are always people who walk past your craft booth at a show and just don’t have time to look at everything. Many of these people will get home and then later want to look up some of your work online.

2. Email Signature Line: Include your name and bead jewelry website address in the signature line of every email you send out. Even if you’re just forwarding a silly joke, this could be important. You never know who may forward your email on to someone stranger who will stumble across your website and fall in love with your jewelry.

3. Comments on Appropriate Forums and Blogs: Even if you aren’t writing a beading blog, you can still read all the other great bead jewelry blogs out there and leave appropriate comments about the post. Most forum comment systems allow you to give a website URL, which is where you’d put your bead jewelry website address. This may not get you much traffic, but it does give you some exposure to other beading people who may be reading the same blog posting and your comments. The same is true on forums. When writing a comment on a bead jewelry message board or forum you should always have your website listed in your signature if allowed. Some sites have rules about this, so it’s best to read and see how it works for each beading site.

4. Advertising: You can advertise a good website in printed media or even on television! I would probably try local newspapers and smaller publications at first. A simple ad online or in a newspaper can read something like this: “All Kinds of Unique Bead Jewelry Supplies and Items! Visit http://www.beadjewelryblog.com” It would be an inexpensive ad because it’s only a few words, and it directs people to your website which might be filled with wonderful full-color photos!

5. Update Your Site Regularly: Once you get a few people to visit, you want to give them a reason to come back. A monthly newsletter or a drawing for a free set of earrings or even a special sale every so often will definitely keep people coming back. And once they’ve become your customer or even your friend they’ll most likely be interested in visiting again and seeing new items.

6. Search Engines and Web Directories: You already built the website, now you might want to submit your site to a number of different online search engines and directories. Your site might not show up immediately, but give it time and you’ll slowly begin getting more visitors.

7. Trading Links: You can write or email other bead jewelry bloggers and ask them to trade links or give you a quick write up on their blogs in exchange for the same. I run a bead jewelry blog and I sometimes like to put up posts of bead jewelry artists just starting out. They usually link to my blog, and I usually put up a post for others to see. We’re all beaders together and we have to help each other!

Good luck promoting your website! These tips really do work. How do I know? Because my bead jewelry blog had over 58,000 unique visitors in 2007 alone!
