We launched a new newsletter today, which we first announced in AuctionBytes Update over the summer when we conducted a survey. We discovered that our readers wanted to learn about a range of topics to help them grow their ecommerce businesses, particularly in areas that would help them drive traffic to their websites and product listings. The only surprise was that most readers wanted a weekly newsletter on the topic of online selling, and many wanted it delivered daily! That confirmed to us that you are hungry for practical information on growing your ecommerce business, so if you have not yet signed up for EcommerceBytes Insider, you can do it online at EcommerceBytes.com. Here is the press release announcement.
NATICK, Mass. - AuctionBytes announced the launch of its latest newsletter for small merchants. EcommerceBytes Insider is a monthly newsletter containing articles about successful online selling - directly from industry insiders who share their firsthand observations of what works and doesn't work for the merchants they work with every day. EcommerceBytes Insider picks the brains of experts and delivers advice to help sellers succeed in their online retail business.
In the debut issue, two industry experts offer advice on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for driving shoppers to product listings. Google's Jessica Ng explains how to submit listings to Google Product Search in order to reach shoppers when they're searching on Google in, "Five Things Every Merchant Should Know about Google Product Search").
And in, "How to Optimize Your Ecommerce Store for Search Engines," Volusion's Chief Operating Officer Clay Olivier tells merchants what to consider when crafting the code and content of their web pages to increase their chances of appearing in the results pages of Google, Yahoo, MSN and other search engines.
The October issue of EcommerceBytes Insider also features a lively profile of MurderMysteryManiacs.com written by Greg Holden, author of 40 books, an expert on eBay and ecommerce, and contributing columnist for AuctionBytes.com.
Merchants can sign up online to receive the EcommerceBytes Insider newsletter via email every month, for free.
