Traffic is how we get sales. If you’re like many SMBs, entrepreneurs, and startups, then you likely don’t have the budget or the time to hire a marketer to handle all of your needs in this arena, and odds are, you’ve been at the helm of all your business’ needs. Oftentimes, marketing falls between the cracks. So, how do you get more traffic to your website and social media on a budget?

1. Make Sure Your Website is Ready for Audiences

Did you create the content for your website? Does it need sprucing up? You’d be surprised how much of an impact the words on your website have on your target audience. The right words can compel a prospect to convert to a customer. Hire a copywriter to proof and revise your website - or even create all new content. Also, work to create a blog with consistent, fresh posts. Hiring a content writer is a great way to ensure that you’re getting content on a regular basis, without having to dedicate to writing all the content yourself. All of this is excellent for reaching audiences organically and for increasing SEO rankings on search engines such as Google.

2. Commit to Your Social Media Campaign

Work to build a social media presence by posting regularly, responding to comments and questions, and getting new followers. One of the biggest things you should be doing? Posting your content regularly. If you have a blog (and you should!), you need to be posting links to your posts on your social media. Also, if you have press releases (again, you really should!), add links to them on social media. All of these things work together to engage audiences and boost SEO.

3. Content is King

Generating more traffic means creating content. If you aren’t creating content on a regular basis, your online presence will get stagnant quickly. If you want to grow, content is key. Content can be created via blog posts, social media posts, press releases, and YouTube videos. Once content is created, it needs to be shared. Social media is your best bet on sharing content. In the case of press releases, you want to share on your social media but also through distribution channels. Remember, not all content is created equal, and not just anything will do. Always work to create high quality content. If you’re creating a press release or blog post, it needs to be free of typos, and the general rules of SEO need to be applied to ensure you get the most out of your content. In terms of video content, a professional feel is important. There are lots of tutorials online to walk you through creating video content, but you can also hire someone from a platform such as Fiverr.

Getting more traffic to your website and social media is all about content, and content can be created fairly cheaply. You have the option of doing it yourself or hiring someone to help. Either way, the return of creating and sharing content on a regular basis will yield the growth you’re hoping to see.

MAY 4, 2020 - The team at 10thAve is pleased to announce that they will be launching the Gold Sunrise wristwatch with a Kickstarter campaign.

10thAve recently made the announcement and plans to officially launch the Kickstarter campaign soon, which will give pledgers around the world an up-close look at the stunning Gold Sunrise watch and give them an opportunity to purchase their own at a fraction of the cost they’d pay after the Kickstarter campaign ends.

At 10thAve, the goal is to create everyday fashion accessories that make day-to-day life a bit brighter, more efficient, and simpler. The Gold Sunrise is their flagship item, which features over 10 hours of quality hand craftsmanship behind each piece and a two year warranty.

At first glance, the Gold Sunrise offers a stunning aesthetic appeal with its laser-precision gold alloy frame and beautiful leather wriststrap. Delving deeper, the Gold Sunrise features amazingly accurate Japanese quartz movement that powers a perpetual calendar and moon phase, in addition to the usual time measurements. The Gold Sunrise features a crystal sapphire clear face covering that is scratch-resistant and glare proof. The Gold Sunrise’s design makes it dust proof and waterproof up to 165 feet. Beautiful, sleek, and hand designed to last, the Gold Sunrise offers the quality of a high dollar wristwatch at a fraction of the cost.

“Our ultimate goal is to bring you products that make your life simpler, easier, more efficient, and happier. But we needed your help to get it off the drawing board and into your hands,” said the team at 10thAve.

The manufacturing process is costly, but 10thAve says it will launch a Kickstarter campaign that will offer benefits for pledgers that include deep discounts on the Gold Sunrise watch. Pledgers will have the opportunity to back the product at varying price points and receive one of the very first Gold Sunrise watches in return.

The 10thAve Gold Sunrise wristwatch will launch on Kickstarter with a $4010 funding goal. If this goal is exceeded and $50,000 is pledged, the first 200 backers will receive their Gold Sunrise with unique serial numbering on their watches.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, MAY 12, 2020 - Each year in Canada, an average of 120,000 - 125,000 people file for bankruptcy or insolvency, but new statistics show that the economic impact of COVID-19 could yield up to ten times the bankruptcy cases seen yearly in Canada.

A recently poll indicated that 9% of participants felt they were somewhat close to declaring bankruptcy, while 4% believed that they could be filing for bankruptcy within the next 90 days. According to these statistics, that means that 1.3+ million Canadians could very soon be facing bankruptcy.

With most of Canada’s government support programs set to run out of funding this summer , and most Canadians not having a sufficient savings cushion, many Canadians are scrambling to find viable debt relief options.

The team at Bankruptcy Canada consists of government-authorized Licensed Insolvency Trustees (LITs) who provide bankruptcy assistance for Canadians every day. They are working now to make more Canadians aware of their financial options in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For instance, Bankruptcy Canada works to help Canadians understand The Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. This act offers debt relief for Canadian debtors. For instance, one strategy, a Consumer Proposal, lets Canadians with steady income negotiate terms with their creditors and eliminate interest with a 0% rate.

A Consumer Proposal is a relatively straightforward way for Canadians to take control of their financial situations in light of bankruptcy.

“With a Consumer Proposal, at zero percent interest, you can pay your debt in full, paying only $584/month, or $116/month [with an interest rate], and have it paid off in a reasonable timeframe of five years,” said the team at Bankruptcy Canada.

In a recent blog post, Bankruptcy Canada offered details on the impact of COVID-19 on bankruptcy in Canada, as well as the options available to consumers.

Consumer Proposals must be administered exclusively by Licensed Insolvency Trustees.

Bankruptcy Canada helps clients navigate through Consumer Proposals, ensuring the necessary process is taken to provide the most assistance possible in the situation. Bankruptcy Canada’s LITs offer free consultations. For those who are potentially facing bankruptcy, whether as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic’s economic impact or any other factor, the team at Bankruptcy Canada encourages Canadians to reach out.
