Growing Your Money Tree

Growing Your Money Tree: Social Marketing

Next Class: To Be Determined

Have you thought about Monetizing Your Website?

I invite you to join me for upcoming presentations on this topic. I will present the ecology of creating and growing your own online Money Tree; that is, a website that sells your product or service. A website is a complex ecosystem that has many aspects that need to interact smoothly to work successfully. The pages that describe the item or service for sale needs a shopping cart system to take the credit card payment. The sign up for newsletter button needs to bring in the subscriber’s information and send them a newsletter. Everything needs to work as a complete ecosystem.

Learn about social networking, WordPress, PayPal, shopping carts, donate buttons, writing blogs, playing audio, embedding movies, Facebook badges, Twitter tweets, Google analytics and just about everything you need for a successful website.

Are you ready to plant your Money Tree and learn how to make it grow into your online business?

It’s not just a web site any more, it’s a CMS! Learn about this Web 2.0 Content Management System – WordPress. A Content Management System is what allows almost everyone to create a blog with their articles and pictures, their unique content.

One of the most popular CMS systems is WordPress, free open source, database-driven web site software that drives over 9 billion pages a day on the internet! Learn about installing WordPress and adding WP themes (the graphic design template), plugins and customization of the elements.

Learn about adding features that extend the capability of the website: Plugins extend the capability of your site to add features like translation into 48 different languages, custom forms, petition campaigns, site indexing, and SEO (Search Engine Optimization – better visibility to search engines). Add a Donate button, sell music or video downloads, sell events or services, sell digital epub books, sell advertising space, run petition campaigns, create community forums, and more.

Learn about promoting your product or service on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
