Is your website mobile ready?
If you host on Word Press, you can install a plug-in that will convert your site to mobile view. Or, use a mobile-ready web host like Mobeezo. You can even make your site tablet-friendly in just minutes with Onswipe.
Mobile technology is so 2112, so jump on board now.
Let’s talk! Connect with customers by creating a conversation-worthy atmosphere on social media.
Create a Facebook fan page, chat on Twitter and post pretty things on Pinterest. Update your social sites with fun, engaging conversation. Don’t spam. Or people will not “like” you. And we don’t want that to happen.
There’s nothing we hate more than a messy, unorganized website. Your website has to be easy-to-use, super functional and attractive.
Tidy up your site by creating easy navigation, writing informative, killer product descriptions (or “explanatory” videos) and having well-written policies and clear product photos. It takes some time but the results are so worth it!
Offer customer service via social media. Encourage customers to ask questions or leave comments on your Twitter or Facebook and respond ASAP. This speeds up customer service and makes customers very, very happy.

Ready. Set. Crunch!
Google analytics is a sure-fire way to keep track of all the traffic going through your website. It tracks keywords, bounce rate, daily traffic stats and so much more.
Use it to crunch your stats so you can see what’s working and what’s not. Adjust accordingly.
