Basic top 10 lists can go a long way in promoting your business online, just because they have ideas your market is looking for. When you share the best ideas, especially when you’re on the list, you show up in searches for other parts of the list. You’re on the list, so they find you too.
When I first started building my business there was a guy who did nothing but write top 10 lists of anything he could think of. His lists directed people to his favorite top ten of everything he wrote, and usually those were things that specifically interested him. I may never forget my favorite list. He had one called Top 10 Hotdog Stands in Denver. I remember driving home one afternoon after a meeting, hungry, tired, frustrated because the meeting didn’t go particularly well, and there it was hanging over the sidewalk, a sign that said “Custer’s Hot Dogs”. I had never been there, but I love hot dogs, so I read the article. I remembered Custer’s was number 3 on their list so I pulled over and pulled over.
It was the best hot dog I can remember. I went back to my computer, checked his website, and started looking for other hot dog stands he had recommended to me. WOW! They were amazing hot dogs. And, I’ve been back to several of those hot dog stands since, even though his website has been totally gone for almost five years. If I’m in the neighborhood, I still stop by these hot dog stands. It’s good marketing!
