When starting an online store, you can either choose to market your store yourself or contact a PR company that can promote your online store. You have two options.
The first choice is to either ask the press to link to your site and mention it in their content. The second choice is to market your online store to popular bloggers and/or website owners and get them to mention it in their blogs and/or websites.
If you want to be successful, you should choose the first option.
The number of people interested in your product is not unlimited. You will probably have a hard time selling your products unless you know the media’s interest in your product. With the press, you can gain additional sales by just sharing some information with your potential customers.
Not only this, but you can also spread the news about your products to other people in your community.
Getting press can really help your online store. You can find a list of the most popular blogs or website owners here.
Promote your Redbubble shop
Do you want to be successful at selling your Redbubble store products? Don’t be afraid to market your online store by contacting some bloggers and websites.
First of all, you should know that there are a lot of websites in the world. Bloggers write about anything and everything.
It would help if you found the websites that already write about your product.
Don’t pay to get press links.
As well as not paying, it would be best if you also read the reviews written by other people. For example, on google, one of the first reviews on the front page is from the blogger’s mother, who loved the product but criticized the design.
Create a press kit.
If you don’t have a lot of time, you can create a press kit or a press release in your own words. In this article, I explain how you can make a press kit for free here.
Get press links for your Redbubble shop.
Don’t waste your time with websites with low page rank. Remember that Google is the search engine that decides where you are to be visible.
It is not an automated company. If you write to hundreds of blogs and websites, your chances are excellent that someone will check your website and write a nice review about it.
Here are some example press links that I made for my Redbubble shop:
This is one of the best results I got. It is for Scholastic Screenwriting for teens – a press link I got from lillypads.com
I also got a lot of amazing news on my Twitter account. Some of these links that I got were:
- com – 7 downloadable screenwriting sample textbooks
- com – Newest film from Jamie McCarthy – 6 movies to watch with your teen this weekend
- Filmmaker Magazine – Free education and cinema lessons for filmmakers
- Film School Rejects – Behind the scenes with teen filmmakers
It goes on and on, but this is a good starting point. Also, please make sure that you are not leaving a link to your product.
You are trying to sell the services that you offer or your brand.
You might have to worry about making TV shows if you sell something other than gadgets.
Fortunately, it is easier than you think.
Many shows such as Suits, Pawn Stars, Hoarders, or Dr. Phil are made by an independent company and sold in syndication. Sometimes they are done by the same company that is doing your show as well.
So, if your show is on the same network as theirs, you will be in luck and get a few extra viewers and sales.
There are a lot of ways to make money with a TV show.
What can you do?
Take advantage of those advertising and sponsorship opportunities that you see on the show. Make it clear that if the product fits your product, you will sponsor it.
The producers often call me to appear on the show. For example, I was on an episode of Hoarders: Buried Alive for November.
It is usually the first week of December when I am waiting to be called.
Make a viral video that goes around the internet. Find the most popular YouTube videos, and you can use their scripts.
Get on the homepage of the websites.
Have your product before your TV show. This will allow you to release a much better-quality product. Of course, you have to sell it first.
Write a press release.
This is a good exercise to get some confidence and learn how to write a good press release. It is a written version of a personal introduction and pitch for your product.
Try to get at least one link from the publication to your website. This will help you get some extra traffic from that website.
