Starting an online business can be frustrating, especially when you put so much time and effort into creating a great product, only to spend months putting together a website that may or may not get any traffic. Baby Zen and Twin Zen are two meditation CDs specifically designed for pregnant women, with an emphasis on high-risk pregnancies and twin pregnancies. I worked long hours on these products because I knew there was a need for them, and I believe in what I created. However, the process of setting up a website and marketing my products was daunting, and I often felt like I was spinning my wheels.
After all the excitement of designing and launching your website, you might be wondering what the next step is to driving traffic to your site. Link exchanges are a great way to start, but there are so many companies and websites that it can be tough to know who to trust. A lot of these places promise to put your link on their site if you put their link on yours, but the catch is that you have to wait 24-48 hours for them to get back to you.
I recently found out that there’s a lot of unethical behavior going on online. I spent days curating a list of only the most relevant baby and pregnancy websites, only to find that people out there are only interested in getting something for nothing. They didn’t even respond to my messages, leaving me hanging. What a horrible way to do business!
If you’re new to website creation and management, one suggestion I have for you is to create an “Exchange Links” page. By doing this, you’re allowing other site owners to find your site and potentially add your link to their page if they find your content relevant to their own. Provide a title and explanation of your site’s purpose, or create an HTML code for an advertisement. By doing this, you’re more likely to get noticed and achieve higher visibility for your site.
Sending a link request? Here’s what to do:
1. Add our link to your site with an explanation of where it is on your website.
2. Give us your link title and URL.
3. Let us know you will respond back within 24 to 48 hours.
We will respond back to you within the timeframe you provided us, whether we decide to exchange links with your website or not. We believe in being ethical and courteous to all, no matter how small or new the website may be.
Just because a company is new and working on getting their start doesn’t mean that bigger and more established websites should treat them with no courtesy at all. After all, we should maintain ethical business practices no matter how big or small a company might be.
We are all connected in this world, and we can help each other by being courteous and generous in business. If everyone looked out for their fellow businesses, our economy in US would be a lot better. So lend a helping hand to your fellow businesses, be courteous, and all of us can strive. There’s no limit to what we can receive from the universe. We only limit ourselves when we limit others. So for all the newbies out there, take my advice on the links exchange page and remember that after you become successful, you were once in their shoes. Always be willing to help out others who are where you once were.
