I read a pretty fun article in SmartMoney yesterday. It’s a look back at true stories of Twitter users that have generated small fortunes via Twitter. The list includes Twitter’s very first tweet by co-founder, Jack Dorsey (who has amassed no “small” fortune - $650 million).
There's a common thread in each of these stories. In each case, the twitterer or the tweet-worthy subject earned themselves an awesome payday - and while some of the instances are one-of-a-kind, there are elements from these stories that we can reapply for ourselves.
For example, celebrity endorsed tweets and re-tweets. The cost up front would definitely be pricy, but the returns may far outweigh the expense.
Just for the record, Clocktower Media is not a team of Twitter experts, but we are Seattle web design and Seattle web development experts. Our team has been designing and developing websites in the Seattle area for the past 13 years, and in that time, we’ve had dozens of clients ask us, “How can I make money online?” There is absolutely no silver bullet, but there are common elements amongst those that have made small fortunes via their websites. What are they? Great question! Here’s a list of 3 things that you might consider incorporating into your Seattle website to begin generating money online:
1. eCommerce: This is probably the most obvious solution, but if you’re operating a brick-and-mortar and still haven’t created an eCommerce website, call our team asap! This is a definite must for anyone looking to increase total sales. According to eMarketer, 73.9% of internet users will make online purchases in 2012!
2. Paid Newsletter Service: This is a great solution for anyone who is an authority on their subject matter. If you know the ins and outs of your industry and have information that you can compile on a weekly or monthly basis, consider setting up a paid newsletter service that allows subscribers to access your knowledge.
3. Schedule Now: We’ve incorporated schedule now buttons into dozens of service-based Seattle websites. This will obviously require active management to maintain incoming reservations, but it will definitely increase the likelihood of you actually filling your reservation list.
That’s all we have for you right now. Be sure to check back for more solutions in the weeks to come. Also, if you’re in need of Seattle web design or Seattle web development, feel free to call our team today – (425) 458-4580
