Online companies rise and fall depending on the quality of search engine optimization.
Let's say you start an online store. The idea rocks, your employees handle customer service like pros, and most of your shipments arrive ahead of schedule. Sounds like a pretty solid start, right?
The only problem lies in the SEO. This hypothetical company has failed to complete research on what it takes to beat out the competition on Google. Therefore, a far less competent company, with sub-par support and a mediocre product beats your company out.
Everyone has ideas they can share. Whether it's about how to successfully garden in an urban environment or tips on how to build a business from scratch.
The world is filled with opportunities for you to share your knowledge, regardless of where that knowledge comes from and whether or not you've ever taught a course in the past.
Email marketing is still the most effective way to connect with your customers. Social media and pay per click advertising are both essential parts of the equation, but they can often only go so far. After all, you're not building a community of loyal customers with advertisements on social media or Google. Email marketing is still the way to connect with and engage customers, both new and old. So which email marketing tool is best for you? There are a lot of them out there, but we are going to focus on two of the most popular: Constant Contact and Mailchimp. Let's pit Mailchimp vs. Constant Contact and see how it turns out.
In today’s review showdown, we pit Mad Mimi against MailChimp to see which email provider will prevail. MailChimp is the real OG, having been founded way back in 2001 one and gained a huge user base of over 9 million people. Mad Mini is slightly newer, having kicked off in 2008 and with only 125 000 customers, but may be a better fit than its more famous contender depending on your needs.
If you're someone who has a wonderful idea for a product to sell online, or your current online (or offline) store could use a stronger presence, you are most likely in the market for a new ecommerce platform. Lucky for you, some high-quality options exist (hence this Shopify vs WIX comparison), allowing for you to play around with each and decide which one is right for you.
Shopify is the clear leader in terms of popularity, but WIX also tends to come up in the conversation, since over 68 million users are utilizing the WIX platform. That's not to say that all WIX users are selling items online, but it's worth noting that WIX does indeed provide ecommerce tools that compete with Shopify.
