NOTE: This post includes:

- How to have an entire WordPress based store and blog built for you (example at NoBogies.com)
I know that most of my readers are bloggers. I know this because I intentionally followed serious bloggers and also because almost all of those who comment here have their own blogs.
What I don’t know is whether my posts are reaching small business owners who would greatly benefit from the proven methods I share on how to increase their traffic and conversions. Bloggers also benefit from this same information and I have some exciting new ideas for them too.
Please take a minute to answer just one question in the simple poll below. I bet you’ll be interested in the results too!
Select the option that is closest to what you do or what you would prefer to be doing online and add any details you would like to share or questions you have in the comments of this post.
Some know that I’ve been collaborating with another blogger on a golf blog that includes both blog content and a store. That particular store was created using Datafeedr to display products offered by others through affiliate programs. The reason I am sharing this is because some may wish to use this strategy to quickly monetize their blog.
Even with datafeedr, building a store in this manner is not all that simple if you’re not highly technical. It is faster – you can add hundreds or thousands of products related to your niche in one day. Or do what I do and have someone who is really sharp do it for you while you focus on creating content to feature specific products or types of products.
We are interested in assisting other bloggers to add a store to their blog. If you want to know the truth – whether you are likely to make money, how long it will take, what else you need to do to get this to work – you know I am going to tell you. I will personally evaluate your existing site, discuss your traffic and what you already know and offer you free guidance.
For those with existing sites the cost is minimal and we may even be willing to add products with no upfront costs on a percentage of sales basis.
If you don’t already have a site or want to create a different site we can help you with that too. Simply leave a comment in this post letting me know you’re interested and I will contact you via the email address you use. You can also contact me at Twitter.
We are particularly interested in assisting those in golf-related businesses related to golf gifts or anyone whose blog would be a good fit for the affiliate program of Executive Gift Shoppe. They sell personalized and engraved gifts suitable for personal gifts or business gifts. They have an enormous inventory, great service, and very competitive prices so they may well have one or more product categories perfect for your store. And they pay a VERY HIGH affiliate commission of 20%.
We are also seeking those in wedding related niches because Executive Gifts started out as a Groomsman Gifts store. Imagine having thousands of wedding related products almost instantly added to your Wedding Planner or other wedding niche store. Datafeedr also supports Bridaluxe so all your favorite stores can be quickly imported into your blog.

One last thing: Do you know a blogger or business owner who could benefit from reading our blog? Would you assist both them and us by recommending us? If you’re a blogger you might even consider including us in one of your posts. We recommend and link to other bloggers all the time and share their posts at Twitter, FriendFeed and cliKball. We thank those who have already taken the time to write about us and hope YOU will consider it too. Thank you.
