How do you make your blog more important in the Stampin and Scrapping world

Google has a search engine spider called "Googlebot" that goes out and "crawls" the web looking for websites and ranks them in order of importance.

How do you make your blog more important in the Stampin and Scrapping world?

If you have been posting about our Treasure hunt using KEY WORDS that was just the first step.

Your fellow demonstrators have posted the "LNS web ring or link list" on their blog and you have posted it on yours. External linking was the second step.

All of you should have seen Increased traffic flow. That is the third step.

Do all you can to Increase your blog viewers and subscribers 

Posting at least once each week will help your viewers want to go see what is new.

How cool is this!

Promoting your blog with videos.

Do you already do stampin videos yourself?

I only started this spring but I can see how the younger generation goes to you tube for just about everything they want to learn to do.
My boys have used videos to help them re-build a car engine. Recently they watched videos on how to clean and repair guns.
I think their first video when they were 16 may have been how to blow a 2 litter bottle into the air using a air compressor and water. 
I'm glad they are good young men and try to stay out of trouble.

What is my point of all this rambling??? 
Videos have proven to be a good way 
for me to teach long distance customers
as well as help train team members.

The last workshop I did showing how to create multi colored embossing pads helped the orders go over $400.  Many of the customers bought the items I showed them how to use.

Last week a past customer was shown how to make the ornaments off the cover of the holiday catalog. She then ordered everything used to make them. 
It's amazing how motivating showing someone something new and exciting can be.
If you haven't already tried to make a video, try it. What do you have to lose?
