Promotion Quick Tip: Section and Front Page Links

Getting the word out about your latest and greatest listing is important. The monthly new listings discussion on Zibbet’s Community Hub is a popular place for Zibbeters to gather and share photos and links to new listings. Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Wanelo postings are also effective ways to tell the world about what’s new in your shop. While links to specific items are very important, don’t underestimate the value of sharing links to your shop sections and to your shop’s front page. While a link to a new item will bring potential buyers into your shop, the shopper may or may not explore other areas of your shop. However, if shoppers enter your shop via a section or front page link they are automatically shown multiple items at first glance, thus increasing the chances that they will remain in your shop longer. The longer they stay, the more items they’ll view and the more likely they are to make a purchase.

Posting links to your sections and front page also helps build incoming links to your shop. Incoming links from credible sources are very good for your shop’s SEO.

Best wishes for much success on Zibbet!

    HI my name is Eva and I don’t know alot about computers or marketing language. What is a link, and how do I geet one? You say posting lint to the shop front is a good thing. How do I do this?

    Hi Eva :) I just checked out your shop, and your beadwork is beautiful. You got your shop up and running… looks great, and being new to this, it must be a testament to how easy Zibbet makes it to open a shop. :)

    You already have a “link”… it’s the address (gobble-d-gook) that you type in to go to your shop. Your shop link is, http://www.zibbet.com/beadablethings , and that is the link you want to share. You put it on your business cards, you put it in your email signature under your name, you make sure it is added to your profiles (your information that everyone sees) on sites like Twitter, FaceBook, Pinterest, and add it to the end of anything you post on any forums, blogs, anywhere you interact on the internet, like when you posted your questions on this blog.

    You can learn a lot about the internet and marketing, just by “surfing the internet”… just go to google.com and type your questions in the search box… and then follow (click) the links that look interesting… you’ll be amazed at what you can find. It’s a big world out there. ;)

    I hope that answers your questions.
