[quote="Nemo"]Hi, I am new to using a blog site for selling purposes and my question is this, do you use your blog page to sell from directly? in other words do you put items for sale in the content area of the blog or just in the sidebar? (because if you put it in the content area surely it is going to dissapear when you write the next article isn't it?) ....also do you use the 'pages' to sell from as well?
I see that you mentioned specifically, "using your blog page to sell from directly? In other words do you put items for sale
in the content area of the blog or just in the sidebar?"
In regard to selling products, you can set up part of your blog as a store. I'm not sure what type of products you are referring to-- but there is a plugin available from Wordpress: the w-p-ecommerce plugin that you can use to set up an actual store with a shopping cart, product lists and so forth on a WP blog.
I have just posted this article about that on BetterNetworker: http://bit.ly/dKUUMM
Hope this is helpful!
