Finding Your Niche

Category : Uncategorized · No Comments · by Nov 4th, 2014

In business often times business owners are so caught up into different ways to make money that they are unable to accomplish any goals they have set. Don’t get me wrong, having multiple sources of revenue come in is a great thing, but if you cannot keep up with all of the different operations you are attempting to run then failure is headed your way. So what do you do? Take a step back for a minute, look at the big picture. What are you trying to accomplish? Find something, one thing that you can be successful at, and work at it. If you don’t know what it is, trial and error never hurts. Give something a shot and give it 100%, rather than giving 10 things 10 percent. The more you put in is the more you get out, and that is how you will find your niche market.

Once you have found that niche market, then you can work on how to build multiple sources of revenue from that specific market, rather than multiple markets. This topic is key to many online and primarily web based businesses including SavePro Designs. Just because a company is web based does not mean it should cater to everyone around the world. Find what you are good at, who you relate to, and who is interested in what you have to offer, those are the people whom you should be doing business with.

Maybe it’s not a particular client base that is your niche market, maybe it is a specific product you target instead of multiple products. There are many different variables; depending on the type of business you run, that it takes to find what your niche is. But whatever it may be, just know that finding your niche and giving 100% is always the best way to go. Make a game plan and stick to it

When the Internet Goes Down

Category : Uncategorized · No Comments · by Jun 10th, 2014

As a web designer things can be very stressful when your internet goes down if you are working on a live website or testing server. Do not panic, there is always a solution. First and foremost you should check to make sure that your network cable did not get unplugged; please do not follow this step if you are on WiFi. (hehe) If your Ethernet cord is securely plugged into your Ethernet port then proceed with unplugging the power source to your router and modem; wait approximately 30 seconds and plug them back in. From there it is suggested to restart your computer as well, but it is not always needed for your internet to pop back up. If this does not fix your problem you still do not need to panic just yet.

Contact your ISP, there could be an outage in your area and they may have an approximate time on how long it will take. Sometimes this could take a matter of 15 minutes to countless hours.

In the event that your internet ends up being down for an extraneous amount of time it is best to always have a back up plan. For starters, does your phone have WiFi tethering? You may be able to start a hotspot right then and there to fix your issues for the time being. Is there a public library near by where you can take your laptop to? This may also be a solution.

Now days internet is everywhere so there is no need to panic, if you cannot find a solution at your home or office, there is internet somewhere near by where you should be able to go! If of course your files are stored on your desktop simply drag them down onto an external hard drive or thumb drive and take your laptop and hit the road.

Social Media Advertising

When starting a business it is always good to go onto social media websites to advertise your business. The more eyes you can get on your business the more chance you have to make a sale. When advertising on social media make sure you have every resource to get as many eyes and connections to your page as possible. Join groups and invite friends to everything related to your business and start posting away.

Another thing to keep in mind is to not only join one website, but rather as many websites as you can manage. If one is all you manage then that is fine. But as previously stated, the more people you can connect with, the better chance of gaining that business. The best websites to connect with people currently are of course Facebook at number one, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and if you are in the music scene MySpace is still viable.

Many people also try the advertising aspect of social media, where the pay to put ads up on the side. If you have ever worked with Google Adwords this is a very similar scenario. Pick a few keywords that you think the client will be typing in when trying to find your business, and then pay to put your ad up for those specific ones. Facebook marketing has a few different options, you can try to promote your site to get likes, or it can be purely based on clicks.

Ultimately, the goal is to get traffic, the more traffic generated the higher chance you will have of grabbing a customer. Sign up and post on every possible website you can, interact with other people, tell them about your business, ask them what they do, and then lastly promote your business to them when the time is right. Word of mouth can go a long ways on the internet and that is the exact reason you are probably hear reading this article today.
