Use a Press-Release to Get Traffic to Your Site!

Gaining traffic through creating quality content, sharing in social networking sites, and joining forum may not be enough. Although these approaches may come viable, it still need a boost. With press release, your traffic campaign can be more effective. Let us see how you can get more traffic to your site with this interesting strategy!

What Is A Press Release?
Even though you may associate a press release with a news paper or the media, a press release is an official statement reporting specific, but brief information about an event, particular matter, or other happening typically tied to a business, organization or your website.
For example, here is a press release for the launching of a website called mycathairmatting.net: “A new blog titled mycathairmatting.net has been launch to help cat owners solve their cat hair and fur matting problems. Pet owners around the world will be thrilled to discover a website design to help them with the latest information and tips on healthy cat hair-care!”

Essential Guidelines in Creating Press Release
Press release can provide valuable links to your website. The number of visitors it garners will depend on several factors. For instance, the topic your press release covers and the option of press-release submission. To ensure that you are on the right track, read this article!
• Newsworthy of the subject matter. The amount of visitor you will receive will depend on your subject. When press release is about celebrity, it usually gets a lot of traffic. Nevertheless, it should be noted that your press release should be related to your website or business that could grab the attention of your audience.
• Remember, it is not an advertisement. Press release is not the avenue to promote your products or services. According to Realty Blog Content, an actual press release should appear like it is written by a neutral third party. Hence, it only states the story and facts of the product.
• Quote. Your press release should not be dull as one reads through every line. Including some quotes relevant to your subject matter can take your press release a leap.
• Credibility and quality. Read and edit your press release once you are done with your draft. When you read it, read as if you have never laid your eyes on it and make the judgment. Edit your write-up once you are done.
• Submission. Selection of press release websites should also be considered. Nonetheless, always check for the credibility and charges..

The Free and Paid Press Release Websites
Now that you are up for submission, the question is which one will you opt to? Is it the free-press release submission or the paid press-release submission?
1. Free-press release submission. When you do not have enough budget, you can always turn to a free press release website. However, it has its boundaries. For instance, photos and videos cannot be included. The following are some of the free websites cited from subhub.

How To Build Confidence, While You Grow Your Business

H0w to Build Your Self Confidence

 

 

7 Ways As Your Business Grows

What individual comes to your mind when you hear the word confidence? Could it be someone you know personally? Perhaps someone you knew in the past? Anyone who knows me on Twitter, @rjack55, will recognize my background image being that of the great Ali, who to me have always epitomized the word confidence-which I use to symbolize that trait in myself and my abilities as a Social Media Specialist. True, self-confidence is not an overnight acquisition. The definition itself means: “belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities.” It sounds simple but not always the case. The good news is you don’t have to be a Muhammad Ali to be successful with your business as a truly confident entrepreneur. All you need is just a little to start out with, and as your business grows, so will confidence in yourself. So here are 7 ways to build that confidence, while you grow your business.

1. Be Organized. If you are a solo entrepreneur don’t try to take on too much at one time. This will actually make you think you lack ability and as a result, you lose confidence. Be patient and build your business one step at a time.

2. Become An Expert. Don’t feel that you have to be an absolute expert in your field or niche. Learn how to promote your products or services to where you are seen as an expert. As others began to look to you for information, this helps build your self-confidence while you are still learning and gaining experience with your business.

3. Choose A Role Model. This can be someone close to you or someone famous or inspirational. It could be an associate or a former boss who you respected. Think of the qualities that the role model displays, whether physical, emotional, or morally. Work towards acquiring those traits. You will find that it may help you to become a better business person which will help you to build confidence in yourself.

4. Make A List of Your Strong Points. Focusing on your strong points helps distract you from those parts of yourself that you think are flawed. It doesn’t have to be a specific skill or activity either; it can be an approach or an attitude. For example: Are you calm or collected? Are you very patient with people? Do you always see the humorous or bright side of things? These are all strong points!

5. Work On Your Elevator Pitch. What is an Elevator Pitch? This is a concise, well-practiced description of your idea. It should end by asking for something to start a relationship. You’ll find if you get people to ask questions or build a relationship with you, this will boost your confidence in yourself.

6. Improve Your Posture. Having good posture can actually make you feel more confident. Don’t slouch or slump your shoulders when you walk. Make sure that your back is straight, your shoulders are square, and your chest is puffed out slightly, but stay loose. Good posture also helps with deep breathing, which helps with feeling calm and relaxed.

7. Think Less- Learn By Doing. Let’s say you are selling a product. Maybe jewelry or cosmetic and you want to approach a stranger with that product. If you over-analyze on what you can say, you can get negative and get caught up in all the possibility of things that can go wrong. So just do it! Preparation is good but sometimes you can actually doubt yourself. So think less, and learn by doing! Your skills will get stronger as a result, which will help increase confidence in your abilities.How to Confidence Yes more and more today are taking the task of starting their own business, either offline or online with the help of social media. If you are one of these then don’t hesitate because you feel you lack confident. No matter whom you are, a little self-confidence can go a long way in building your success.
So “Float Like a Butterfly and Sting Like a Bee!” Yes-you can DO IT!!!
