Hello friends. I trust your travels through the sewage of webs have been enjoyable. Thanks for porting your vessel at my humble pier. Step up, adjust your attire and take your load off. Gentlemen, smooth out your mustache. Ladies, powder your nose. Honorable decorum is appreciated.
I thought I would submit this missive to discuss an interesting web page creator I have been fooling about with. Apologies to those who are already aware of this application and have been using it to deploy your creations into the Matrix. I have spent the last week or so utilizing Wix.com to create surprisingly attractive and, perhaps, useful webpages. I currently exploit the free option as I continue to evaluate the suitability of the service. I’m at the point where I think it might be worthwhile to bring it to the attention of the two or three readers of this blog who may not be aware of this webpage builder.
My existence on the web is one of selling affiliate products. I do not find WordPress to be an adequate conduit for this activity. Daily blogging of 1 or 2 or more products gets old and cannot be sustained manually. That’s why so many sink into the autoblog sandtrap. I prefer static pages anyway. Squidoo is obscenely easy to create a page full of affiliate products. But it can grow only so big. You can’t have more than, like, nine outbound affiliate links. And frankly I appreciate diversification.
Wix solves that problem. I can create mini sites, like this, quite easily.
Holy crap! Dude, that is a “thin site”!
Since I neither concern myself with the whims of guberus or Google I really don’t care. There are other ways to get traffic to your site which include Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.
Dude! That looks spammy. WTF!
I concern myself with keywords and products. There are plenty of sites that do quite well with but a catalog of items to sell. If you are looking then I have the product. If you want a dissertation of 440 well-placed words about the target then I suggest you look elsewhere. You want dresses with holes in them? Then I have a selection for your perusal.
With the advent of Pinterest, and other visually stimulating sites, it is much easier to market products with but a few well chosen keywords and photos. Believe me when I say that women find fashion to be of value as I can typically get many of these product photos pinned and re-pinned on Pinterest and logged and re-logged on Tumblr. I am working on more manly pursuits for these sites yet find it slightly less fulfilling. I have hopes that future ambitions will be fruitful.
Wix has easily adjustable and configurable templates. Something about HTML 5. They are keen on SEO. The sites look pretty good, with minimal effort, in my ever so humble opinion. All it takes are some crafty keywords and clever marketing to enjoy a few handfuls of coin collection.
I suppose this could be construed as affiliate product spam pages for the unimaginative. I don’t think it’s any worse than Squidoo pages which do quite well.
I submit Wix to you as an alternative to the ever present WordPress blog. Do with it as you wish. Some of you may find value in the offering and make the most of the platform. Others will not. I really don’t care. Please do not shoot the messenger. I have no interest in you participating or not. I am simply passing along something that I am currently evaluating and frankly see more value than not at this moment.
