With any web site or online business, it is important to change things up a ‘bit every so often. You don’t want to be seen as becoming stale, or yesterday’s news, so bringing new web site concepts or ideas could be the perfect diversification tool you need to keep people interested in what you do and what you have to offer. There is not a web site out there today that could not be helped by adding one of these four web site service ideas.
Here are four different ways you can branch your web site out:
Blogs – Many people use blogs to extend their web sites. To keep people coming back several times a day, weekly, monthly or more you need to deliver fresh innovative content. A blogging script is the perfect give you the perfect delivery tool to make that happen.
Forums or Message Boards – Setting up a forum script will give the fan base that your web site has a place to discuss issues or issues related to your web site. For example, if I added forums to WebHostingShow.com, they would be for all of you to discuss web hosting and web development issues among yourselves.
Social Sites – It might not be a hosted service, but it is certainly a little something extra you can do to bring more eyeballs in to see your web site. Look into setting up profiles on Twitter, Facebook and the like to bring mention of your web site outside your own domain. Use them as a way to socialize with your fan base, and keep them up to date on the latest and greatest things you have to offer.
E-Commerce Scripts – Finally, you have e-commerce scripts (also sometimes called shopping cart scripts). By adding an e-commerce section to your web site, you will bring in a new way to bring in revenue and sell your unique products and ideas. Make sure you start off small, and you sell something that is unique to your web site or business.
There are your four different ways you can diversify your own web site or online business to attract new eyeballs, and keep the current eyeballs you have coming back for more content, news, and services.
