Who Gives A Hoot about WAHM's?

Do you feel like no one cares about you being a WAHM?

Are you having a pitty party because you can't seem to figure out why you aren't getting any sales and your products are just so darn cute, unique, and trendy?
Well guess what! I care about you.

About a month ago, I posted a blog about an opportunity that would help WAHM's increase their sales. Well I finally got everything in gear about two weeks ago.

I created a site that is geared toward helping WAHM's increase their sales.

By being a SEO expert. I work with a lot of WAHM's and Dad's too. I was having a lot of sleepless nights because I was hearing all over the internet about small business owners not getting any traffic or sales. I knew I could help increase the traffic and take care of that problem. But the part about the sales were really getting to me.

Although I am able to help a lot of small business owners increase their sales along with their traffic. There were still some who were having a hard time increasing their sales.

Maybe it was because they didn't have enough products on their sites to make a visitor feel comfortable making a purchase. Or Maybe it was because their product images weren't the best quality. That's actually a whole different topic that I will be blogging about later.

Regardless of what the issues were. They were just not converting their traffic into sales.

Does this sound familiar?

So I created a fun website that is geared toward helping WAHM's and Dad's to increase their sales through our Online Shopping Mall with WAHM's products displayed in each department. The site is called WAHM Pub. Our slogan is "Coffee Stained T-Shirts, Jogging pants, and house slippers are Welcome! It's a great place where buyers can come and shop , chat and have fun.

I wanted the site to be different from all other advertising venues for WAHM's. There a lot of great things on the site for entertainment. Like the really off the wall departments like the Smell Good Department. With one of my favorite scents being promoted:

Yes, I have a weird since of humor!

There are other categories like our Bling Bling Department, Lookin' for Scraps (Features Scrapbooking products), Luck Be A Lady or a Man! (Features contest by WAHM's) and so much more.

There are a lot of things for buyers to do on the site, like visiting our Online Pub (it's a forum everyone, although your welcome to sip on a Margarita while joining in on some of the topics), or watching our Funny Mommy Videos. There are definitely some videos on there that I can relate too!

We also have a Super Mom Stimulus that will start in May, you can nominate a Mom or Dad to receive a $200.00 Stimulus from WAHM Pub, A Coupon Babes section, that list coupons being offered by other businesses (still working on this section) and so much more.

Okay, So I know you have a lot of questions like. How will it help increase my sales? and Most of all What is the cost for all of your kindness?

Here's how it works. You list your products on the site and when a buyer goes to the category or lands on your products page. They read over the product information that includes a description, sizes and price. If they like what they see, the click on the Buy Now button listed on your products page and lands on your product page to make the purchase.

You collect the order information, payment and shipping all through your site. I don't get a dime from your sale! You process the order just like you would any other normal order that comes through your site.

What's the point you ask?

The point is this. By implementing my SEO expertise, your products have a better chance of getting noticed on the major search engines, your products will be uploaded to Google's Product Search/Froogle/Google Base, and I do all of the paid advertising for you.

So I know, now your questions is. What's the catch?

There is no catch. Really. I really truly care. I am a WAHM myself, a mother of three. I know how difficult it is to try to get sales and how frustrating it is to spend tons of money advertising your site to not see a single ROI (return on investments). I really believe in helping others achieve their online goals and this is one way that I think I can contribute.

I know, now you are wondering how much is all of this going to cost?

Well, I really believe in the phrase, "Nothing in life is Free". So in saying that. Nothing in life is Free!!!

But the cost to list your products on the site is!

That's right, it's Free to advertise your products on the site.

All I ask is that you help promote the site. By helping to promote the site. You will be helping other WAHM's and Dads'. There are ways to help out.

You can help out by posting a My Products Are Featured At WAHM Pub button like the one below on your home page. Or Blog or Tweet about the site and tell everyone you know about the site!

The spots are limited for advertising and the amount of Free products you can list are 5.

I am also looking for Sponsors and Volunteers to help out with site.

This site is solely to help out others. So if you are interested in becoming a Sponsor. All funds will go into our site. The site is a site that is not for profit. All funds that come into the site are used to promote the site, through online ads, Google Adwords and so much more.

So if you would like to contribute by becoming a Sponsor. You can do so by either advertising your site in our WAHM Directory or by listing your Contest or Giveaway on the site. Or by Sponsoring a Super Mom Stimulus.

There are so many ways to help.

So all you WAHM's. I know you waited a long time for me to announce this and I am glad that I finally have.

If you are interested in listing your products on the site or becoming a sponsor. Just click on the link below and sign up. I will try to respond within 48 hours.

To Tweet or Not To Tweet?

It seems like it's been a long time since the last time I posted. I definitely have a lot of things to cover but I don't want to push it.

So I'll start off with the topic that everyone seems to be talking about, including you most likely?


Twitter has taken the world by storm. Some do it ever so often, some do it often and some of you, I hate to say it, are down right OBSESSED!!!

You can find your local news channels on there, you can find the latest celebs on there and guess who else you can find!


That's right I said it. Google is now on Twitter.

Do I have your attention now?

Just a couple of weeks ago, Google joined the majority and signed up for a Twitter account and within a couple of hours they had over 20K followers.

That has got to be some tweet record or something.

So what is Twitter and what does that have to do with your business success online?


Twitter is a great place to meet new people and network with other business owners. It's like an online texting oasis.

Start by signing up with a Twitter account at

Name your twitter account after you business.

Set up your profile and invite your friends from forums, clients, and family too to start following you.

When someone follows you, they will get to see what you are doing by your updates.

You can also find others to follow and 9 x's out of 10 they will follow you back. You can find people to follow by clicking on the Find People link at the bottom of Twitters website.

You post little comments about what you are doing. You can post anywhere from messages about adding new products to your website or How crappy your day as been.

Twitter is a great place to build your prospect list as well. You can post links to your site, maybe even a link to a special offer on your site or a link to somewhere on your site that you offer a free download. All they have to do is sign up for your free downloadable item or giveaway and you can collect their email address to build a relationship with via newsletters, discounts, promotions etc.

The trick is though. You don't want to post mainly about your business. You want to be as natural as possible. Post about your day, your opinions about the latest trends, about any recalls you may have heard etc..

I got a great tip from a fellow follower, stalkers I like to call them.

She suggested that you post your link in all of your messages. That way, people who are following you will start to go to your website if you have interesting updates. That has worked for me as well. So I am passing on that suggestion to you.

So to end this post. I definitely recommend joining Twitter. It can be very confusing at first but definitely a must if you are a business owner looking to network , increase traffic and hopefully make a sale or two, or three, or a hundred!

Like anything. It will take time building the number of followers. I suggest having more followers than you following more.
