2. Ping your blog after every post at http://pingomatic.com/

3. Here’s a real gem: Submit your blog to http://www.pingoat.com/ Pingoat will ping over fifty blog ping services all at once. So you don’t have to hunt for ping services and manually ping them. Pingoat pings over fifty blog ping servers (growing) with just one click.

7. Sign up for a “My Yahoo” at http://my.yahoo.com/ and attach your blog to your own “My Yahoo” account. This will get your blog included in Yahoo very quickly. This is worth the effort to stop what you’re doing right and do it, since Yahoo has a PR 9.

8. Use this code: “http://add.my.yahoo.com/content?url= http://www.yourblog.com/urblog.xml” in your blog to allow others to put your feed on their own “My Yahoo” account.

9. Sign up for a “My MSN” at http://www.my.msn.com/, and attach your blog to your own “My MSN” account. This will get your blog included in MSN very quickly. This is also invaluable because MSN has a PR 8.

10. Use this code: “http://my.msn.com/addtomymsn.armx?id= rss&ut=http://www.urblogfeedaddress.com/urblog.xml” in your blog to allow others to put your feed on their own “My MSN” account.

11. Place the link and description of your blog in your signature, so that any posts to Forums, Outgoing Emails, Autoresponder Courses, etc, will promote your blog.

12. Post a link and description of your blog on each of your sites.

13. Place your blog on all the major search engines. AddMe.com will submit your blog free to the top 14 Search engines here:
http://www.addme.com/submission.htm

SubmitExpress.com will submit your blog free to the top 20 Search engines here:

http://ezinearticles.com/
http://goarticles.com/
http://www.knowledge-finder.com/
http://www.informit.com/articles/

15. Locate blogs with a lot of traffic and place useful comments in their comment box. Be sure the blog and your comments are relavent to both your blog and theirs. Senseless posts won’t help you, they’ll hurt you.

16. Once you get around 5 to 10 posts on your blog, start a PR campaign and announce it to all relevant channels.

17. Make a blog post as often as possible. More than once a day is not really necessary. Remember, if you can’t write that much, go to step # 14.

What is a PING?

24 04 2007

There are a number of PING services available.  PING services basically announced to the world that you have made changes to your blog.  Its like COME AND GET MY NEW INFORMATION….service!

WordPress has an automatic ping, but I can’t be sure what places they PING to!  If you look to the sidebar I have a section named ping services.  I will add on more with time.

Ping services give information to search engines, and things may not happen right away but you will get noticed if you do this regularly!  I was told by the author of Emotional Abuse and Your Faith  that they use the ping services, and their major sources of hits now is google!  They have also mentioned our store and blog on their website.  That is called a link exchange.  They also support Focus Ministries, so we have something in common!

Keep in mind that Ping Services at times give you options of suppling JUST your homepage, or in addition your RSS feed!  For myself, I keep the store and the blog address and RSS feeds on a notepad file for easy retrival!  Just cut and paste – press enter – and I’m DONE!

Make sure you PING your blog!  If you have any other ping services to share please let us KNOW!

Feedburner (Used by Emotional Abuse and Your Faith)

As I find more I will add them to the blogroll!

UPDATE:  I did find some more, and have added them to the section!!

How To Get Better Acceptance In Directory Submissions? « Directory Submission Blog

Was an interesting article about directories!  If you look towards the bottom of our blog you will see a section called ‘Recipital Links”, and I have a number of blog directories listed there.  For now I have decided I will go with some free directories until I learn a little more about them.  I realize some you have to pay for, and as I learn a bit more about them I may use those as well!

There are number of places that will show you links to directories.  Follow the advice in the above article, and pick out which ones will work for you!  Its a great way of driving traffic to your blog, and then you STORE for more sales!  Keep in mind there are directories for different areas.  You have directories for those that write ebooks, gardening, SEO, etc.  If you do a search I bet you will find directories around your interest, and in the end THIS is who you are targeting and will benefit you the most!

LIST  that found during a search on the internet!

I did a tag search on wordpress, and here are some good examples of different types of directories:

Geared Towards India

Geared Towards Science

Geared Towards Business Services

Advertising Ideas

9 04 2007

Ebay doesn’t like for you to place advertisments that go off their site.  A few things people have mentioned about this are the following:

Article written as to HOW you can do this legally!

You are allowed one link on your “ABOUT ME” page!  Here is the link to how you can create and manage this PAGE.

Other Items Mentioned for stores:

  • Include your ecrater store URL in every package you send out!
  • PayPal packing slip
  • If you send any invoice to your customers on Ebay make sure you place your website – it may not be clickable, but it is seen!
  • You can do the same thing if you send invoice’s via paypal.
  • Start a blog, and place RSS readers on it.
  • Announce a coupon – lets say take $20 off any order over $200, and mark it on coorespondence.
  • Write a newsletter!
  • Wearables, magnets and business cards promoting your business.
  • Someone wrote that when they return their library books they use their business card for the store as a bookmarker – and forget to remove it!
  • Join forums related to your wear, and place your link to the store, blog or whatever in there.  It helps the rating on how many sites are links to yours for internet searching purposes.  It can help with sales etc as well!
  • Leave your business card with the tip while dining out.
  • Find places and people that offer link exchanges.

These are just a few, and as I come up with more….I will post them!

Below is for people that prefer to do their own artwork.

DIGITAL ART
The highest quality art is VECTOR ART. It is resolution independent . This means that it can be enlarged without affecting the quality of your imprint.

RASTER ART (Placed/continuous tone images)
Raster Art is resolution dependent. When you change the size of an imprint, you change the quality. This means that the resolution (dpi or ppi) of your file is critical. Files must be at least 600dpi. Grayscale and Bitmaps must be 1200 dpi at 100% of final size. Do not submit files w/linked images. Please mebed all graphics.

FONTS
Convert your text into “curves” or “outlines” before e-mailing your art.

TYPESETTING
We can add text to your imprint at no additional charge. We have a variety of popular fonts, just pick your favorite from the list on above. Then send a typewritten version of the text, and specify typeface, point sizes and case.

Artwork Standards
In order to give you the highest quality imprint, we have developed some artwork guidelines, which include minimum line weights. All copy should be 6 points or larger. Lines should be no thinner than .5 pt. We will redraw halftones and screens, filling them in or outlining them, and reset copy when necessary. BIC reserves the right to modify your art if it does not meet these quality standards.

We do have templates, and details instructions also…..just ask!





RSS Feeds – What do you do with them?

7 04 2007

WordPress has an RSS feed on your blog page.

I’m sure you have seen the above, and there are other feeders as well.  This one seems to be the most popular! 

First I want to include a cute video as an introduction!


So what did we learn about RSS?  Basically new content on your favorite sites are sent to you via your reader or email.   

Why would you want that?  It seems RSS is getting more and more popular, and as the video states – its saves your readers TIME!  I have been told that your website counter may go down, but if you pay attention to your feedburner account (the company I choose to burn my feeds) your readership has gone UP in alot of cases!  They don’t have to come to your website anymore to read what you have to say!

On ecrater you must burn you feed for each catagory, and to be honest I get the impression if you have more than one page on your catagory of goods – burn that as well!  That is why I have a couple of different feeds.

When I first HEARD about RSS I was writing on another blog off wordpress.  I had found a video I wanted to post to this blog, and I had no clue where to start to figure out HOW to do this!  I found this website that had tutorials in video form to show people how to do this.  YES this was before I had heard of Youtube!  They do have a good video on burning a RSS feed tho!

BURNING A FEED  You have a choice between a windows media or quicktime.  Its well worth the view if you are like me, and NOT quite sure what you are doing!

Once you burn the feed make sure you click on all the tabs within feedburner, and learn about them.  They even have a ping service for your feeds.  I will talk about pings on a later date! 

Spring/Fall Zero Posur girls Jacket with

 4 Velcro Pockets 6X

Spring/Fall Zero Posur girls Jacket with 4 Velcro Pockets 6X

This Light Blue Fall Spring Jacket is from Zero Posur.

Its one of those situtations we all hate when a relative buys your child this WONDERFUL jacket – you blink – and they grow out of it!

The inside tag mentions “Element Protector” it has the grey wool like lining (soft). The zipper pull is still in tact if that gives you any clue how much it was worn! The picture above you can see one of the side velcro pockets – front of jacket. The other one is on opposite side – I wanted you to see the gray accent going down the sleeves. On the left sleeve you have the “ZX” logo and the pocket you can see on the bottom portion of the main picture (thumbnail below), and a bigger pocket on the rear of the jacket shown on the top portion of main image (thumbnail bowl).

This jacket is nice for those Cool Spring Nights or Early to late Fall! Great for Camping TRIPS!

Label reads: Size GIRLS (L) 6X, Shell – 100% Nylon with Polyurethane coating. Lining: Body and Hood 75% Polyester 25% Rayon Sleeves 100% Polyster Rib 100% Acrylic Sleeves Filler 100% Polyester. Exclusive of Ornamentation. RN# 50411, Machine Wash Cold, Gentle Cycle, Wash Darks Separately, Do not Bleach. Tumble Dry Low, Do not Iron, May be Professional Dry Cleaned.

Normally, I use Priority Mail for all my packages.

If you would prefer to use Parcel Post for your packages to save some money on shipping I would be more than happy to do that. Keep in mind that will take at times a lot longer to get to you, and has restrictions for delivery confirmation and insurance.

I would be more than happy to combine items to save your money on shipping charges, and I normally ship out within 3-4 business days. If there is a delay I will contact you right away. I normally try to get the packages out promptly.

I welcome international orders, but you will have to contact me for a quote. Also be note that I can only pay the shipping charges presented at the time from the carrier, and can’t be responsible for additional fees you are asked to pay to be received within your country.
