I just launched my website

16 replies
I just launched my website (its all in Spanish) where I sell custom themes for WP, this is an untapped market in Ecuador (where I live), they still tend static web pages without any kind of implementation of web 2.0.
As I said, I just started and not to promote my site.

The site is on the air for just over two weeks.

  • I started buying some traffic from Google ($ 10 more or less)
  • I created my Facbook page and a Twitter account. I have not touched any of the two accounts because I do not know hot to get started.
    • How do you recommend I start my activity on social networks?
  • I also want to start my business with a blog. Do you recommend this? what kind of things I can write?

    I understand marketing is much less competitive for Spanish language products, in case you didn't know,there are a good number of Click top sellers that have been translated to Spanish.

    To clarify, you use a personal Facebook page for your biography & friends and a separate Fan Pages for all business dealings.

    Good Luck

    AlejandroPuyol,

    1) First of all... use WordPress as a platform for your "blog" or your main website.

    2) Second... add an app to your Facebook account called "RSS Grafitti". It will automatically post your blog posts to Facebook when set up properly.

    3) Add a plugin called Tweet Tools to your WordPress site so that your blog posts are automatically tweeted.

    4) Spend a few bucks on a great program called TweetAdder (google it). Use it for adding followers, tweeting, etc. They have an excellent tutorial and it is a great product for tweeting and building your followers as long as you don't go overboard with it.

    5) A great service to use for article writing is need-an-article.com. (I used to use that service until we got our own internal full-time writers. Great service - fair price.)

    Best of Success!

      Thanks George! This is great advice for me. I didn't know much about using Tweet Tools.

      Thank you very much for your advice. I'm having trouble finding writers in Spanish. I found some that I liked but the prices were crazy, ($ 50 for an article of 300 words)

        Maybe that's an area of opportunity for you as well if your Spanish writing skills are up to par.

    The best thing you can do is target local SEO forums and start helping people. You can even give away a free theme in exchange for an opt-in and start building a list of your own.

    Also a good free ebook on your subject can bring in a lot of traffic when done correctly. Hope that helps bud :p

      I know, I do want to build a blog. My actual question is. What is it appropiate to blog about? My own products? My market news? Both?

    A blog is highly recommended because you can list on the search engines for many specific keywords in your niche. You should write about anything having to do with what you are promoting whether very general or very specific.

    If you are offering WP Themes, your market is global and not necessarily limited to your country or city. You may be better off purchasing articles in english written by native english speakers and then translating them to spanish which is your native language. You will then have the best of both worlds.

    You could then have a sub-domain in your site tailored to the english market... hope that helps.

    Just like the older wiser brother said!

    Wordpress is a super popular market and you are not limited to Spanish audience. But if you offer tutorials in Spanish, then you get a a lot of local audience and business.

    There are lots of things you can write about wordpress and theme development. The topics are always evergreen, just start writing!

    Also create video tutorials, they are better than blog posts.
