How-To Guru

Our how-to site is squeaking along slowly. We're not getting a TON of visitors, and I'm still trying to figure out how to promote it. We recently started offering weekly giveaways with our how-tos as incentive for people to visit our site. That seems to be helping, but I don't yet know how to get the big traffic. I think I'd need a major blogger or media site of some sort to do a story on us, and I don't know how to make that happen.

By the way, enter to win a tie dye sweatshirt this week, just by making a comment.

I figure this is a good learning process no matter what. I started out by doing a super simple blog, and now I can add html to make it three columns, change the background, etc., etc.

By the way, if you have any shopping on Amazon to do, please do it through our blog. We get a portion of sales if you enter through our site. Yes, yes, this is cool. But we haven't made any money yet.

I'll definitely shop amazon thru your site. However, I don't really get how to get onto amazon. I see the mosaic information, but no real obvious link that says "click here for amazon".

Our Amazon portal is on the left hand side of the page. We have a strip there where you can click on featured Amazon products. By entering through there, I think it tracks what you buy.

Yeah, I was able to get into amazon that way, but I was thinking that anyone not interested in buying mosaics wouldn't bother to click there and you might miss an amazon sale.
