A lot going on this weekend!

WOW! You wouldn’t believe how busy I was this weekend! Starting with Friday morning I called Volusion and Network Solutions (2 of the Top 10 Shopping Carts of 2010). I am going to be setting up trial stores to learn more about their features and be able to provide my customers with a broader selection of platforms. I can tell you right away that I liked their customer support, they were quick to answer, very friendly and sounded like they want my business. I was surprised to learn that Volusion offices are on the same city as BigCommerce (Austin, TX) and they are actually down the street from each other! I may go visit both of them one of these days.

Also Friday one of the BigCommerce stores saw a 400% increase in traffic after sending a mass e-mail. We saw a few orders, some bid requests form the Bid Request Page that we set-up. A Couple phone calls and even 2 walk-ins to the store! I am excited to see what happens tomorrow Monday. I will be checking my e-mail for any new orders over the weekend.

Also, another client e-mailed me on Friday evening and they are ready to have me start working on 5 new domains. I will be adding content, meta tags, and a few links. I had a three-way conference call today with the client and GoDaddy Support to set-up FTP access to all 5 domains. So as you can see I am on top of this.

Also Friday I had another client called and he is ready to start on his E-mail Marketing campaign. I am going to help him set-up a 10,000 e-mail list to get going on the e-mail marketing campaign efforts. I am hopping he will use my services to design and develop his Newsletters. I love marketing!

Another customer called and he is ready to move from a hosted shopping cart to a purchased license of Interspire Shopping cart and host it at a different hosting company. I suggested this to him since he is uploading somewhere between 40,000 and 60,000 digital downloads in the next 2 to 3 years. Spending $300 a month is not wise since he can pay about $170/year for hosting and purchase the shopping cart license for $1700. I am all about saving my clients money. That’s why they stick with me.

What else…

Oh Yeah!! InterAct Cleaning has had a sweet spike on bid requests for Residential and Commercial Cleaning services. They were busy all weekend receiving requests from their website, calling, e-mailing, and visiting new prospects; which I am glad to inform they acquired all these new accounts. Way to go InterAct Cleaning!! All this happened thanks to some SEO work I did about a week ago. They don’t use a shopping cart but I built their website, so I am proud of them none the less.

That’s all for now, thanks for reading and remember to keep checking back. I haven’t heard from you yet, so drop me a line one of these days.
