Why use StumbleUpon.com?
I admit, I’m pretty new to StumbleUpon.com but just today I saw one of the reasons it’s recommended as a great Social Network and SMO tool.
We have a new Door County Wisconsin blog that we just stared about a month ago. My wife, who loves to write, has been in charge of the content. She wrote a really good article on Saturday about how to make reviews on DoorCountyReviews.com so today I went to the article and added it to my StumbleUpon account. About 30 minutes later we had over 60 page views on the blog. I know, that’s really nothing, but to go from 0 page views to 60 in a few minutes is rewarding to me, especially when part of our business plan is to work with local businesses who will care about traffic (or should).
So, point is, if you haven’t signed up for StumbleUpon.com yet, I recommend it. It’s a great way to promote you’re own stuff and share it with a huge community, which in turn could turn in to traffic, which in turn could turn in to sales.
So much to do with an eCommerce business, isn’t there? Welcome to the life of an entrepreneur.
UPDATE: I did the same thing with a few of my articles from MollerMarketing and have had over 100 visitors today from StumbleUpon.com!
