Ok. So now that I've spent the last month drilling into the importance of STRATEGY. And if you've been following along closely enough, you'll know that I'm talking about strategy and tracking (analyzing your strategies to optimize them) in every aspect of your business (marketing strategies, finance strategies, inventory buying strategies, and so much more).
There are some things I want to make sure I share with you too. That are, perhaps even more important than strategy or tracking. I know. Wait a minute, what could be more important that the strategies behind your business?
Email marketing. Either you're already doing it or you know you should be. But WHAT is it exactly that you should be doing? Here's some straight forward tips on where I suggest starting (but remember taking action is better than not taking action, so start with what you can do and build upon it as you go)!
These are two things you can strategize around to increase revenue: increasing your conversion rate (by optimizing your website), and increasing your average cart total value (could play around with bundles, or adjusting your free shipping threshold, or upsell apps, as a few ideas).

But then, you drop your latest marketing strategy to chase this new idea and at the end of the day, you keep doing this and never actually make any of the ideas you are currently working on, well - actually work!
As a small business owner, there is often a big dilemma. When you are incredibly busy and the money is rolling in, often you are losing your mind, overwhelmed by all the steps, the fulfillment, the keeping up with messages. But the inverse is also true: when there are no sales and no messages coming in, the stress is there too; but this time it is lack of money.
Blogging can help drive traffic to your website (assuming that you are, of course, sharing your blog posts everywhere you can once you post them), build a community and even help your SEO (content is king, they say, and this is because you can sprinkle tons of SEO keywords and phrases - which we will go over in a bit here too).
