If you have a blog, you are pitching. How often have you heard that (even at conferences)? It is a very true statement. When you put up a website, you are most likely not hording it all to your lonesome. You are telling people about it.
Some of you might not understand this and be saying – ‘I have a personal site, so how can I be selling.’
You are selling your words.
Every time you share that blog post out on Twitter, Facebook, and all the social network sites out there, you are basically advertising- ‘Here is my post. Please come read it.’
There is no shame in that, but make sure your pitch is a clear one. If it takes a long novel to describe what your site is about, people will not be interested. Keep your pitch simple and between 3 to 20 words. This pitch is something you can use at your site’s description so when Google picks up your site, that will include exactly what you want people to know about your site.
For example- I use: “Helping You Rock Out Your Site Like A Rockstar” for Blondish.net
You will know I help people with their websites and that I hope to make sure their websites turn out awesome.
