WAHM Online Marketing

I was part of GNO’s Grand Giveaway on Twitter and had so much fun tweeting about shopping for the holidays. But the main goal for this event was helping out Mom owned online businesses. So while there were giveaways there was also traffic to their online stores and a lot of “window” and actual shopping going on too. This helped these WAHMs market their businesses.

There are different ways to get traffic to your website and online store. Some businesses provide help with conversion rate optimization once someone gets to your site.

You can also join forums, Twitter, Facebook but not just write about your business. Be friendly and let people get to know you as a person while they get to know you as a business person. It always feels better to buy something from someone you know than from a stranger.

Offer giveaways via blogs, Twitter and your own contests. Help out new online businesses by promoting them (if they are not your direct competition of course). Provide products for bloggers to review. Think outside the box.

Another thing you can do is offer an affiliate program. You don’t need to be rich in order to do this. You can help give your business a boost by starting this in your early stages and then increasing the amount affiliates receive once your business takes off.

What are some things you have done as a WAHM business owner to promote yourself?
