There are many sites available where you can market your products and/or services. Using these sites can help you put your products in front of millions of potential customers who want to buy what you have to sell. These sites include catalog sites, business directories, as well as affiliate program directories, and other sites that allow you to create a presence. Some examples would include Merchant Circle, Payvment, and Manta.
The beauty of building your business this way is that it allows you to set up a presence on a site and then you only have to maintain it. It’s basically a set and forget system that will continue to drive traffic to your business over and over.
You will need to have your own products for this system to work. The reason is that some of these sites will require you to add your products to the catalog.
To get started, you’ll need to do some preparation. I would highly advise that you create a text file with all of your information in it. Here’s what you will need to include:
Address, phone number, email (Contact information)
Link to your website
Now, a little explanation is in order. When you create your product list, you’ll need more than just a list of your products. You want to write out a title, description, and tags for each product. Write both long and short descriptions, as well as having several tags. Focus on keywords that are related to your products or services as these will be used in site search to help users find what they’re looking for. Make sure your tags are relevant.
Keep the search engines in mind, as well as the search functions on these websites. You want your potential customers to be able to find your products so if you use the wrong keywords, you won’t be found. Don’t stuff your keywords. This is where you want to pay attention to the rules of the site and follow them closely. This also includes the way you format your keywords or tags.
One way to find these types of sites is to use a site like Alexa and check the related sites. You may also want to consider doing a search in the search engines. Look for sites that allow you to submit your site (directories), or submit a catalog of your products. The more places you post your products, the greater the chance of making the sale because you are taking your products to where you potential customers go to shop.
