1. Information:

    The number one seller on the Internet is information.
  • Have lots of relevant, free information on your site for your visitors to read, and keep adding more and they’ll keep coming back to read it.

2. Top Ten Lists:

    Always popular are Top Ten Lists … or Top Seven Lists, or whatever number you can come up with.
  • A really good Top List can later be expanded and turned into an e-book.

3. News Articles:

    People always like to know what’s the latest and greatest.
  • Keep them up to date with your company’s activities with a news page or article.
  • You can also keep them up to date with other happenings in your industry.

4. Interviews:

  • A great way to tell your customers how useful your product or service is, is to have interviews with clients, or experts.
  • If there is an article in your local paper at any time about you or your business, it can (with permission) be reproduced on your site.
  • Or do an interview yourself, with groups or individuals of interest to your target audience and publish it on your website.

5. Publications:

  • E-zines, Newsletters, Booklets, Bulletins are all publications.
  • Choose what fits best for your site and have the information available, plus an archive past editions.
  • Free E-books are also publications much in demand.

6. Information Bites:

  • Intersperse short information-bites at appropriate places, and change them regularly.

7. Visual Content:

  • Your site should be visually pleasing, but not too complicated.
  • Ease of navigation is a visual “tool” often overlooked in many “beautiful” sites.

8. Entertaining Content:

  • Keep them coming back for more with any items of fun you can include: unusual quotes, jokes, photos.

9. Excerpts:

  • If you are selling a book, as excerpt as long as an entire chapter is a great selling tool. In a bookstore you can look through the book before you buy, this is the internet equivalent.

10. Technology Content:

  • The choice is ever expanding
  • There are audio clips, streaming video, MP3 files and more coming online by the minute.
