Another idea that I would add to the list is reaching out to influencers in your industry. Be genuinely interested in them and pay attention to what they are usually attracted to or how your business can help them out. This helps to build a relationship with them and will definitely place your business on their radar. Although it is hard to measure the ROI of these activities, a mention or even better, a recommendation for your business by these influencers in the future will bring your business the desired exposure, recognition and even sales."
Thank you for sharing the list, Rebecca. Added a few of these blogs into Feedly. KISSMetrics, Moz, Small Business Trends, Get Elastic and Search Engine Watch are all great blogs that I enjoy reading too. Quick Sprout by Neil Patel is another epic blog that every entrepreneur and small business owner, whether or not they are running an e-commerce business, should follow."
Thank you for sharing the tools. Evernote is a great service that I've been paying for quite some time. It's amazing how I can just dump everything possible into it and still manage to find them later. I'm even using it as a personal task management app now since it introduced the Reminders feature. I also rely completely on Lastpass for password management. Another tool that has helped me a lot will be Trello. I use it for project management, scheduling of social media postings, content creation and many more. Best of all, it's simple and free to use."
Thank you for writing this, Reginald. I noticed that when influencers are starting out, they tend to only focus on one or very few things that matter, and they focus on doing them very well. The same is applied across marketing and content creation. This is what I am currently applying to grow my current project, Sprout Geek."
