After an awesome weekend watching my wonderful little sister graduate from high school and celebrating with her I came home ready to get some work done. I woke up and the first thing I did was check all of my stats to decide what I wanted to work on first. I was super excited to see that I made my first blender sale!
I did make a sale from my new Amazon site last week but it wasn’t even related to blenders so I didn’t count it, but today I actually sold a blender!
Those of you who didn’t see the site yet, you can check it out here:
It’s a work in progress but I’ve developed how I want to run it, promote it, and all of that.
The first product I reviewed was a cheap Oster blender that I’ve personally used for smoothies before. I haven’t even finished editing and tweaking the review and it made a sale, how exciting is that?
You know what this calls for?!?
Come on, don’t leave me hanging!
So, now that I’ve shared this little victory with you it’s time to tell you what I did to get traffic to my site, right? I’ll give a little overview now and if there is anything you want more specifics on, leave a comment and I’ll explain it in more detail. The whole point of sharing this little victory with you is to help you experience similar victories!
So, I didn’t really bother with SEO. I love cooking, I love smoothies, and I’ve gone through a lot of blenders. It seemed like a good thing to write about and I’m enjoy it so far.
- I set up a list using a PLR report as an opt-in freebie. I edited it a little but the information was great so I mostly left it as it was.
- I made a Facebook page, Pinterest and a Twitter.
- I wrote one in-depth review on the Oster smoothie blender. I aimed for 1000 words which I was just under.
- I wrote a blog post about making powdered sugar out of regular sugar as part of the informational blog.
- I wrote a page on Bubblews about a coffee banana smoothie recipe.
My whole plan here is that I’ll review blenders and I’ll also share recipes and write about using and shopping for blenders. You get the direct buyer traffic through the reviews and the information will help me build up my site as an authority site. That’s also the stuff that will get people connecting through social media. (No one is going to repin my review but they may repin my post on making powdered sugar which helps get traffic to the reviews.)
I picked a nice magazine theme so I could feature the reviews in the slider at the top and then feature the recipes and other articles down below.
