How much time do you spend on thinking what could you do to attract more people to your wine blog? Are you happy with the number of people who follow you on social media and engage with what you publish there? Do you feel like you are a part of wine network community? Could you tell whether you are engaged with what others do or you just focus on auto promotion? Do you think that you have […]
I wonder whether or not you have been asking yourself this question.. In case you haven’t, let me do it for you: Are you adult oriented when publishing online? In other words: Have you ever been thinking how to protect people who are under the legal drinking age from viewing your website? Do you know what can you do to limit access to your website for underage people? It sounds ridiculous indeed. Firstly perhaps you do not […]
December is usually a busy month. Not only because of the Christmas preparation but also, due to enjoying our winter holidays, we have to finish a lot of projects at work in the first half of the month. Moreover, it is the time when most of us look for presents for our beloved ones and we spend a huge amount of our free time in the shopping centers. There’s not much time left for neither reading nor […]
Let’s make it clear from the beginning – a ‘start-here’ page is not essential for running a successful wine website. It may be, however, very helpful for new readers, who visit your website for the first time. Additionally, you may turn your start here page into a high converting page, which will be very valuable for you. Think of a start here page (or a getting-started page, or a new reader page, or any other name page) […]
Wine writing has one beneficial characteristic: it is timeless. You write about how to taste wine or what are the wine regions in France and in the years time the information is still valid. It may need some updates, yet in general it is still a great and mostly up-to-date content. Then.. Why not promoting it again? Rather than searching for ideas, revamp the old posts and promote them to your readers and followers. It is a […]
Social media pages are important for building the engagement with your audience. Still, the main and most important online platform you focus on should be.. yes, your website! That’s why it is important to know the wine blog dimensions for images you upload to your wine blog. Remember: your wine blog is a place you want to redirect your readers from your social media pages or other websites; not the other way round.
Size matters – an introduction to a series of tips on how to share images online on your wine blog and social media with accurate dimensions for Facebook Pages, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Photos and pictures (graphics, infographics, icons etc) are important elements you should take care of while writing either an article for your wine website or a post for any of your social media. They make your writing more interesting and are very popular nowadays.
A ‘reading experience’ is quite a new term in web design. I bet you know that your website needs to be pretty, easy to navigate and give value in order to keep your visitors for longer. It applies to the graphics design as well as to the text content of your wine blog posts. After all, it is difficult to read when there is just a one massive block of text. For this reason it is important […]
There are many free stock photos to use on the internet and many bloggers use them on their websites. Personally, I prefer to use my own pictures on my wine website, but I don’t mind adapting free stock pictures for WBT purposes ;) I’ve been searching for the free stock photos for wine blogs and I found some that you might be interested in.
As wine lovers we are not only interested in how wine is being made or what the wine regions of the world are, but – mostly – we are wine lovers because of our love to wine. And because of we taste wine we should consider publishing tasting notes online.
