As a kid, you may have feared the dreaded "back to school" shopping signs that were hung in store windows and department stores in early August. It seemed as if as soon as school vacation had begun, the constant reminders of going back to school were everywhere! Couldn't they just let kids relax and have a good time without thinking about going back to school?
Now, being on the opposite side of things, you might see why preparing (buying) ahead of time is actually a good thing for parents. Scrambling last minute, waiting in long lines, trying on clothes, fighting for decent pens, paper, and now tablets. This push to be prepared can be a good thing for Zujava Writers, too... but you, the Writer, have to be prepared as well.
Every year, growth of online sales are on the rise, while many brick and mortar stores see sales declines. People are becoming more accustomed to buying online.
Buyers are becoming more wise, researching the products they buy prior to plunking down their cash, and they're looking for honest recommendations from honest people. That's where you have the perfect opportunity, because a leaf can be an intersection of an honest review combined with helpful recommendations that the buyer will heed. If you can give them the information they're looking for exactly, then there's a good chance that they'll purchase directly from your leaf, resulting in a sale.
We'd like to see more honest reviews, helpful tips, and real recommendations for our readers this "back to school" season. So, this week, we gave everyone a mission in the forums: start creating your back to school leaves now, so that they can start receiving traffic when people start searching. Writers that submit a leaf to the mission will receive home page placement this weekend, a link from the official Zujava Facebook page, and best of all, the best leaf submitted will receive a blog post dedicated to their leaf!
To get you started, we've come up with some ideas for back to school leaves. Feel free to use these! We respectfully ask that there be one Writer per topic idea listed below. If you plan on using a topic idea, please let us know in the comments so two people don't take the same topic idea. Thanks!
