Two great articles for business website owners.
I have been running, managing and setting up ecommerce an B2B websites for several years and every once in a while I come across an article or blog post that is exceptionally useful.
One of the best articles I have ever found for business websites is on the entrepreneur.com website and was written July 2006. The article Hit the Sweet Spot, is a simple guide covering seven areas your marketing must address to successfully sell to business owners. I printed this article out and it still sits on my desk six months after is was published. It is easily applicable to both websites and any other sales environment. Every point in the article is spot on, and it has statistically proven itself to help with the sites that I have applied it to. For people tasked to market a product to business owners, and entrepreneurs, this article is the foundation of what your marketing needs to contain. It’s more or less the seven commandments of business marketing.
The second article which was recently was recently written by Andy Beal is a great post, Five Secret Strategies to Add $1 Million in Revenue to your Interactive Marketing Agency in 2007. While the article is initially targeted at companies providing services mainly SEM / SEO services, they are very applicable to all businesses. Andy touches on using PR Firms and press releases, both are some of the more commonly overlooked areas that can really boost a business when used effectively.
