One thing is for sure, neither designing nor selling of interior or furniture is an easy job. I for one have seen many a showroom open with a bang yet abruptly close due to a lack of clientele. Sad, but true.
Anyways, I am here to tip you on how you can bring clients to your door step, without having to make much efforts for the same. No kidding!! Read on…
You need not be a rocket scientist to understand that an interior and furniture website would do the trick for you. Of course, you would understand that your furniture and interior website designing would require to be SEO friendly…blah blah blah… all this has been discussed like a million times, so I am not going to drain your brains with that.
Let us come to the point, your furniture and interior design websites must reflect your exquisite taste and fashionable instincts. Only a capturing interior and furniture website design that displays your remarkably artistic gut would generate more sales leads for your business. You don’t expect dull and boring websites for furniture and interiors to make any good sales do you??
And again, you must be available up-front for search engines. You just cant imagine how many people type in keywords related to your business, every day, around the globe?!?!?! So, including just the right keywords (psst..try fitting in keywords that have not been optimized on by your competition, they’ll be a better catch )and ignoring the ones that have saturated competition optimization would help you come up in the search results for websites for interior design and furniture.
You can always sign up for a PPC campaign for your interior and furniture websites. Try going for the bigger fish like Google, Yahoo or MSN to get the best targeted effect. It would cost you just a few pennies but get you a clientage that would be worth the expenditure.
What else!! Go ahead. Don’t just sit there….Do something for your interior and furniture website and increase your sales leads.

Believe it or not, PowerPoint presentations and all the whistles and bells that come along with them are being used more than ever in the business scenarios and other presentation venues. I just attended a conference where almost every other person considered themselves to be a pro at designing PowerPoint presentation slides. Trust me, their over confidence only resulted in their PPT files to become unprofessional in looks and overloaded with information. Ughhhh…
I could barely stand their ugly looking and ill structured PowerPoint presentation slides and kept murmuring to myself â€œDoesn’t anyone know how to make a PowerPoint presentation that is worthy of being considered as a business PPT?â€
When it was turn for me to speak, I decided it was high time that I told those bozos how to make effective PowerPoint presentations that would attract the audience towards discussions and not die with boredom!!!!
So…I gave out my SIX tips for making good PowerPoint presentations. Have a look:
Tip 1: Use Meaningful Titles of max 6 words.
Tip 2: No more than 6 bullets per slide.
Tip 3: No more than 6 rows of data/data points in a table or graph.
Tip 4: Make only 6 slides, giving 5 minutes for discussion on each, or 12 slides with2-3 mins for discussion (30 minutes in total).
Tip 5: Use Animations and graphics sparingly. Don’t cluster your PPT format with an overload of images. Try replacing your text with images to gain interest.
Tip 6: Less is always more. Lesser words on the PowerPoint presentation slides mean better illumination on key points.
Well, it took me hardly 30 minutes myself to explain it to my audience, but I guess, I made the lot understand the way to make a PowerPoint presentation that is actually POWERFULL!!!!

For starters, if you wish to increase website traffic then begin by publishing quality and keyword rich content on your website. This would drag targeted website traffic to your site.

So what do you think is more important….Engaging customers or simply being visible on the Internet?!?! Well, I feel that without getting any inquiries through your website or making any conversions, your web presence is absolutely futile and a sheer waste of money.
Think about it! As a marketer you must obviously be putting in quite a lot of your time, effort and money into improving your visibility to reach the top few search results of Search Engines.

Yesterday, while looking for content for reference to write an article, I came across a website that was an ideal example to be called a DISASTER!!!! Man….that site neither had a good web design nor an efficient layout; which brings me down to write this blog today! (wish whosoever designed that site would see this and take the advice!!!!)
Well, we all know that a good website design that has vibrant colors and great graphics can catch the eye of the visitor immediately. But it is also essential to know that you don’t include colors that are not in hormony with the context of the website. Obviously, you can make a kids website in bright pink with animated characters floating around, but imagine designing a corporate website with the same features
Ok. Now that you agree to that ( I am pretty sure of that) I believe that you would also agree on the fact that generally the web site design must be such that all the web pages download quickly. Trust me..It would be a sure relief for the visitors to go through your entire site if the web design loads faster.
Well, you wouldn’t want your visitors to go blind every time they have to make an effort to read the text on your website… So, make sure to chose readable fonts for your web pages and pleeeeease keep the font size to the minimum of 11-12 pixels. It would save your visitors from getting glasses after having read the entire content!!
Don’t tell me you expect all your website visitors to have the same kind of computer? Well, then why have a website design which is neither stretchable, nor works on every browser/computer/ operating system? I say it would be best to have a web design that is device independent and supports Cascading Style Sheets (hope you have heard about them). They would be more user friendly and make your visitors comfortable with your web site design.
Thats all folks!!!

One thing is for sure, as soon as I think about planning for a trip, the first thought that crops up my mind is to look for a hotel in the premises I intend to visit. And how do I do that? Easy, take out my laptop and begin surfing on the Net for hotel websites!!!
Being a globetrotter, a hospitality website is a true blessing in disguise for me. In fact, my search for a new place to visit, begins with a search for a hotel website. I believe that one of the basic problems that I face when I visit a place is a lack of good accommodation facility.
However, those hotels which care enough to create a hospitality web site for themselves, get the added advantage of achieving the clientele like me, who prefer surfing through the WWW to get info, rather than going to the offices of travel agents for the same.
And of course, in this rat race, those who have the best hotel website win the dash of getting better customers. Well, thats quite obvious, isn’t it?!?!
