Been awhile since I've been on here - but I'm back!
Well, I now have 9 websites, having just finished my last one - http://www.NaturalProductsOnline.ca!
It is hard starting your own home business, and perseverance is the way to go! My theory was "go big or go home" and my hard work is (finally) paying off!
I started with one website, general Content - ExpressionsByTamara.com. Then, I realized I should have the CDN version too - so I got ExpressionsbyTamara.ca.
Next, I wanted to create a site for all home based businesses in my city to help promote everyone. This time I grabbed both the .ca and .com versions for AirdrieInfo.
I realized soon after, that if someone is searching for "Airdrie Information" they won't necessarily type in "Airdrie Info" - so I acquired AirdrieInformation.ca and .com.
Next, I was looking for popular trends and for something which spoke to Watkins "Good for You" products. Enter www.GoGreenNorthAmerica.ca and www.WhyNotNorthAmerica.com.
I should be happy there, but there was yet another to do - Watkins has Natural Products and that's essentially what I sell - Natural Products...online. So, the now new, improved and for now, final version of my business - http://www.NaturalProductsOnline.ca!
AirdrieInfo.ca is still the home business listing site, though I've paid little attention to it for awhile! AirdrieInfo.com is my other business - I can not state their name on my own website due to their advertising policies, but let's say my two businesses are Watkins and Partylite - and AirdrieInfo.com is NOT Watkins!
ExpressionsbyTamara.com is a link to family videos - one I can put our videos and such and let my family members have an access code to watch them anytime! ExpressionsbyTamara.ca is a Watkins site.
AirdrieInformation.ca and .com are also Watkins sites, though targeting different users with different needs. You must always keep in mind that while some people like much content, others want straight to the point!
GoGreenNorthAmerica.ca is a site for my team and current customers - listing the local reps, providing access to catalogues and the such and giving a space for user feedback. WhyNotNorthAmerica.com is pretty similar, though not updated as much. I will give away this domain once it expires.
Nice, organized, Neat - http://www.NaturalProductsOnline.ca is my one stop shop for all things Watkins!
It's taken awhile but most of my pages are finally getting on the first page and some searches, such as Watkins Products Alberta - are hitting 1st spot results - Yay!
Now, I can focus on maintaining blogs and managing my team, providing them with tools I've found useful in expanding my customer base.
Hard work is worth it - and we all know that - since we are all mothers! :)
