I have been working as a web marketer for few years now and I have been promoting e-commerce in Italy and Uk. Few weeks ago I have been contact from a representative of Octoprice.co.uk a new product search engine. They offered me for my shops a free listing and no cpc. I have been thinking a while if I should take the time to export my catalogue in Xml and publish it on them. After I have decided to publish it for the following reasons:
- No cost what’s so ever ( I love free stuff!)
- Relevant results
- Little competition from other similar shops
- Now is free, tomorrow they may be changing policy so better getting on board now! Become.com has thought the lesson.
So I have now listed a couple of bike shops and I hope to get some sales from them (Checking referral trough Google Analytics) if they will not come I pretend that I sign up to a free directory and I hope to get some page rank from them.
As usual comments are welcomed!
