    Yes it does seem that the purpose of this is to get a backlink in.

    I’m no lawyer but I’m pretty sure coming and making accusations like that is like… Slander, or defamation, or something.

    Someone help me out with the terminology but you can’t just go around saying they’re sending fake jobs without any proof, and expect not to be dragged into court over it.

    I can think of nothing worse than being in an industry like Domino’s where you entire business strategy is competing purely on price and racing to the bottom.

    I know I’m late to the party here, but this was a very entertaining read.

    Is this concept basically the same as gofundme or similar platforms?

    Your reviews looked fine to me.

    Sarah if your budget is super low then it might be worth investigating something like Etsy rather than setting up your own website.

    Trying to build a whole ecomerce setup for $20/mo is likely going to end badly i think.

    Hey there. I had a quick look and the site looks decent, but I think you’re missing a few opportunities from a design perspective. I’ll give you some tips based on my web design / graphic design background.

    The site overall, though neat and tidy is kind of bland. The home page especially needs to really sell the concept of a personalised teddy bear. I can deduce what the deal is from the photos you’ve supplied but this should really be a nice sell page which showcases all the features…

    Can i choose the style, material, colour? The writing on the jumper, the eyes? What else?

    This is where I should look and go “wow my daughter would LOVE this”. The photos you’ve got are nice, but some are nicer than others.

    The photos of the bears isolated on white are ok, but they’re not great. The lighting used here doesn’t do justice to the colours and soft furry textures of the bears and it kind of makes it look a little amateurish.

    This isn’t an extensive review, but those are the things which stood out immediately to me when I came to the site.

    Why would your default advice be to focus on SEO over PPC?

    Doing PPC first is a great way to identify the search terms which generate the most conversions and then enable you to target the best terms when you start your SEO strategy.

    Or is this just a bias because you provide SEO services?
    Either way I’m not sure that’s the best advice for this member, or smb’s as a whole.

    Don’t use “how did you hear about us” to track a conversion. Use a facebook pixel.

    When people get asked that question they can interpret it many different ways other than what you actually want which is (did you click my ad before you bought this thing).

    The reality is they may have clicked your ad, then left, come back and purchase later on. Or they may have heard of you some place else, but the ad was what they saw right before the purchased. There are so many ways this can go wrong but at least if you use a conversion pixel you’ll know with a high degree of accuracy if they interacted with your ad (at some point) prior to purchasing.

    I’m guessing this is woocommerce WP plugin tied into amazon affiliates?

    I can see from your Tube Academy page that you have 92 followers, so would you say the majority of your new customers comes from the significant promotion you do in business networking and SMB groups? Is that something you can see in the data you track?

    Sorry for all the questions. It seems whichever path you go with content it requires significant promotion and what you’re saying is that it almost requires promotion of the promotion by doing even more on Facebook than just simply posting on your page.

    That’s ok mate. Yeah the page only has a very small following and still definitely in the growth phase at the moment. It grow by about 40% last week.
    Because I’m still building the audience on SM it means I have to promote the promotion in other places as you said, but as the SM audience gets larger I won’t have to do that. It’s just a short term method rather than paying for facebook followers.
    Due to that, it’s a bit of a mix where the signups come from at the moment.

    I was just curious to find out why she actually called me, and where the call would end up.

    It’s dominated by Facebook. I also use Linkedin a little bit but the type of SMBs I’m targeting aren’t super active there.

    I focus on creating content that I know my target audience will go “oh wow i really needed to know that”. I make videos because they auto play on Facebook and they’re easier to absorb than written articles, and a share the absolute bejeezus out of them on other business networking groups, and SMB pages etc.

    It has a pretty decent effect and I get a lot of sign ups out of it.

    For my business it’s almost exclusively done via social media in the B2B space.
