I was just writing up a welcome letter to my new bloggers to hype them up on their new blog site and get them excited about what they can do with it, when I got to wondering what other folks offer.
I'll start out by listing what I offer (straight from the exciting sales pitch letter through the advanced technique of copy and paste.) to my target market of accountants. Maybe other folks would give lists of what they offer and we can each inspire others. Here goes ...
In order to get started, there is a bit of housekeeping and setup you need to do. To get started, you'll need to log in and take care of a few things …
(1)Deciding if you want to keep the default theme, or use one of the several hundred other themes available,
(2)Customizing your site header to remove our site name and use your own logo and brand,
(3)Deciding which pages about your firm you want to have, such as describing your firm, your services and staff,
(4)Writing the content for those pages,
(5)Deciding what user interaction you want, and activating or deactivating those tools, things like
...1.Your free client and visitor forum,
...2.Your free seminars and workshops calendar,
...3.Your free contact us form,
...4.Your free survey or poll,
...5.Your free financial calculators
...6.Your free email marketing and newsletter account, and
...7.Your free articles for your content.
(6)Signing up for your affiliate account so you can earn money from ads shown on your site,
(7)Creating your own products to sell in ads on your site and through our network of sites,
(8)Consider upgrading to offer advanced benefits, such as
...1.A private membership only section of your website, and
...2.Creating your own network of websites for your clients and community, just like this.
PS - A lot of these things will be moved to Supporter or Upgrade categories as I build a community. I'm offering them free at this time to attract users. My competitions charges $49.95 a month and gives more, so I'm thinking that after I learn and offer more I'll know what to charge for and what to give away.
