Small Business Finding Online Success

John Tuggle
Success stories from small business owners are always great to hear. We recently came across this interview with John Tuggle, a MerchantCircle member, on search engine land. It's one of the most informative and inspiring I've read in awhile. In the interview John gives us a great shout-out:

search engine land: Of all the things you're doing -- the blog, podcasts, YouTube, etc. -- what's working the best for you?

It's hard to say which one is working the best, because I get a lot of visitors to the site from each of those areas. If I had to pick one I would say YouTube. I've had about 40,000 views of all my videos in three months, and I get a lot of visitors that buy from YouTube.

I've also used local online promotion, such as Yahoo!Local, Google Maps, MerchantCircle -- which gets fantastic Google rankings -- and a few others, as well.

Learning marketing has been the best thing I've ever learned how to do. I see tons of talent go to waste because of the lack of how to get the word out about yourself.

The interview goes on to offer a ton of other tips on getting the most out of your blog, bookmarking, and of course, finding more customers.
