I am now knee deep in setting up the DTCWT blog into an e-commerce business. Gosh my mind is in overdrive processing all the information.
I am using Fiverr an online digital marketing platform. I love this company. Freelance specialists from all over the world with top notch experiences starting with £5.
Online store set-up
This came about after a few people overseas were asking to buy my book but with no secure payment options it become a problem to serve these clients. I use Stripe as my checkout point, this process all major cards. I only have the book for sale on this site at the moment but it will become a store that will provide all accessory products for baby and kids!
I have been active on this blog for three years but had no idea how important a subscriber list is, but as they say, better late than never. I now got mailchimp integrated into my website so I track all subscribers. How they signed up, organic or through targeted advertisement. It feels great to be able to understand the process.
What is SEO? Short for search engine optimisation. I remember when I opened my first salon in Botswana in 2006 I advertised every fortnight in the local newspaper but now in our digital world, clients what information instantly. As an online company if you are not found on google it’s a slow death. Seo is seen as an investment. I called a digital marketing company and they quoted me HK$7000 per month, I’m like how the hell!!!! But one of my clients a long term online entrepreneur reassured me that is actually cheap, her Seo investment is HK$15000 per month. This section I still need to get the hang on but not to worry, I will!
Yes, I have now reach a place where my little personal blog has turn into a brand. I started it after I spend 8 weeks in the hospital before the boys were born and because they were born premature they spend 8 weeks in NICU. This whole period was really hard on me, so I started this blog to help me cope with my thoughts.
I need a digital intern to help me keep on top of Double Trouble Coping With Twins website. As much as I am a super woman running my businesses I do not want to get back to that place where I felt really overwhelmed, burned out and scared (this happened when I opened my 2nd salon recently and feeling mom guild because of the hours away from my kids). I have invested to much money in my physical and mental health to risk! I am all about asking for help.
Thank you for joining us on this journey.
