And while my wife is busy making "Hippos Name" even better, I can try to get as much exposure for the company as I can. Now let me tell you, this is no easy feat! Your best bet is to have a marketing plan. I have a general plan of tweets, announcements, blog posts, and articles that I need to write. But it also means building a detailed plan for specific marketing objectives with deadlines built in. I probably won't be able to build that plan until next week, since I'm taking a small break this week.
I will tell you though that what I am doing is working. My stats on traffic have increased 1000%. I had somewhat modest figures to start. On an average day without any marketing, I was getting about 25 unique visitors; a real drop in the bucket. I noticed that when I increased my tweeting, blog posts, and such, that those numbers doubled! And each subsequent month, it was increasing by 20-25% across the board. This month is entirely different. My numbers for the month to date, is now three quarters of what last month were. My goal for hits was 8,000 for the month; still very modest. I should see closer to 12,000. And I'm now averaging 200-250 visitors a day! Why is the reason for the uptick in traffic, you ask? Well for one thing, any time I introduce a new app, my traffic always spikes. But it's different this time. It's very probable that September and October will equal Jan-Aug for traffic. And there's good reason for it, I'm working even harder to make sure that people see us. I'll talk more about that in my marketing plan that I'll release in November. I'd love to hear from you with a comment if I'm on the right track. It will help me to deliver better content. Thanks for reading! –Nick
