Tips for Optimizing Men’s Bomber Jacket Website

E-commerce is a flourishing business since it does not require you to have an actual shop or physical product. This allows for increased freedom and reduced costs compared to traditional business models. One of the most popular types of e-commerce is online clothing stores.


A men’s bomber jacket website can be easily set up and maintained without any previous experience and with relatively low costs involved. There are a few things that need to be considered when setting up a website for selling men’s bomber jackets online.


Here are some tips for optimizing your Men’s Bomber Jacket website to help it rank higher in search results.

Tips for Optimizing

Use a Professional-Looking Site Design


When you have a site that is well designed it reflects professionalism. You want to make sure your website is easy to navigate and the content loads properly so there are no broken links or images. Sometimes Google can take things like this as a sign of not taking time to ensure your user experience would be a positive one. This will reflect poorly on your rankings.


Optimize Your Website for Mobile Devices


A great number of people in the world own a smartphone or tablet. So you might consider optimizing your website for these devices so they can easily access your information as well. A good way to do this is by using a plugin on WordPress, and choosing the “Tablet” and “Smartphone” options on it so that your site shrinks and adjusts according to whatever device they are on.


Optimize the Website Speed


If your site takes too long to load, people will leave and look for another site with similar content that is easier to access. There might not even be an issue with how quickly the information loads when they click on your link, but it can take even longer for their computer/browser cache to process the information it needs. This is very common on certain browsers, usually, ones that are “add-ons” or one’s with lots of plugins installed.


Include a Newsletter Signup and Contact Form


This allows visitors to subscribe to receive emails from you with promotions, new arrivals, and other information they might find interesting. Make sure your contact info is available on each page. Put this information in an obvious place so that people know how to reach you if they have any questions about your website, products, or policies.


Create Categories for Each Product


Your website should have categories that cover all of your products. For example, the Men’s Bomber Jackets category. This way people browsing through the pages can find what they are looking for more easily instead of scrolling through a list of items or keywords trying to find what they need.


Add a Blog Section to the Website and Write Quality Content


If you want to get more exposure, it’s time to start creating content regularly. A good place to do this would be by using a “blog” section on your website. If your content provides something useful or entertaining for others, they’re usually much more willing to share it with their following. If you write your content specifically targeted towards Men’s Bomber Jacket, there is a chance you will rank higher than the competitor with less relevant keywords, but not as good quality content.


Use High-Quality Photos on Your Website


Having good photos is extremely important because it helps people see what they are buying online instead of just reading some text about the product. Make sure you hire an expert …

The Loss of Source Interlink’s Distribution and 12 Titles, and Trying to Find a Lesson in All This

Source Interlink had a doozy of a week last week, and that is not said lightly. In fact, it’s said with a very heavy heart. The scale of its news about its “absorption” of 12 of its super-niche print titles into what could be called “parent” brands (e.g., Custom Classic Trucks being absorbed by Classic Trucks)—plus the news of its distribution business shutting down, affecting some 6,000 employees (as reported by Keith J. Kelly of the New York Post), made last week a hard one to stomach for the industry.


We are losing some great magazines, and more importantly thousands of our own are going to be standing in the unemployment line.

Is there a lesson in this? Without knowing the full situation inside Source Interlink (regarding its magazine publishing business, and the wholesale business aside), it’s hard to say. And this is also hard for me to say, but it’s almost surprising that such niche titles survived this long.

Enthusiast titles have been among those that have often fared better than most, through the economic recession that left virtually no business untouched, through changing consumer content-consumption habits, through skyrocketing postal rates, and so on. Enthusiast brands are the ones that often have the most engaged audiences, and strong advertising, as marketers thrived on reaching very targeted audiences. The magazines and digital brands that support niche/enthusiast publications/brands speak directly to their audiences’ interests, creating engaged, loyal communities.

The challenge arises, in my opinion, when enthusiast brands break out into sub-brands. It’s a precarious line to walk, as you risk fragmenting your audience to too great a degree. When you see the list of titles being closed by Source Interlink, they all fall into this category. Look at the Hot Rod-related brands Source Interlink was publishing: Popular Hot Rodding (now closing), Hot Rod, Rod & Custom (now closing), Street Rodder (somehow staying afloat), High Performance Pontiac (now closing).

Maybe there was a time—in the heyday of magazine publishing—when such super-niche titles could be supported by (and even thrive on) the surplus of advertising that fattened the media market (in some cases leading to an oversight of excessive spending). But in the past decade, with print advertising declining, among the gazillion other challenges, these super-niche brands likely ended up draining advertising from their broader-scope “parent” titles or vice versa.

This is really somewhat of a theory on my part, but one that seems quite likely to be the case. Especially considering most of the titles affected are in the automotive sector, which we all know wasn’t left untouched by the recession (again, to say the least).

Regardless, it’s a sad day in publishing history and one whose impact (particularly regarding Source’s distribution business shutting down) will continue to send shock waves across all facets of the industry in the weeks and months to come, as publishers, other wholesalers and retailers strive to pick up the pieces.

My heart goes out to all those affected. And I am once again reminded of one of my favorite sayings of all time (which if you’re one of the (two?) people who have followed me over the years, you will likely know I resort to this often): “These are the times that try men’s souls” by Thomas Paine. Paine didn’t have the media industry in mind when he said this, but it seems, once again, appropriate as we continue to take beatings and continue to stand back up, as individuals and as a whole.

The newsstand situation is going to be one that is harder to recover from, and likely it will be more of a …

Publishing’s Phoenix: U.S. News & World Report Emerges With a New Set of Wings, Part II

U.S. News & World Report was one of those magazines that had always just been there—packed into the stack of mail in the mailbox, on the coffee table at the doctor’s office, at the newsstand, being read on the train on the way home from work. The day in Fall 2010 when the venerable magazine announced it would cease publication (a process that was a year or two in the making) was a tough one to stomach. Publishing was in trouble. And it wasn’t just newsweeklies and newspapers. We were all in this boat together, and we watched as one of our industry’s flagships went down. (Or so we thought.)

Even the U.S. News and World Report staff—from top to bottom—may have thought it was the end. About half of the 150-person staff was let go. “For those of us who have been with the brand, you know six, seven, eight years ago, those were challenging times,” says Kerry Dyer, U.S. News & World Report’s publisher. “When U.S. News was down in ad pages, it was the beginning of the talk that was going on about whether U.S. News could survive. There was also talk about print surviving. That, I can tell you, was challenging. If you’ve lived on both sides of it, you know the feeling, and we certainly at U.S. News know that feeling, and we’re not looking back.”

But it wasn’t the end. It wasn’t a death. It was the beginning of a rebirth—one that is not only inspiring in its positive outcome, but also packed with lessons for us all, in free and paid content, in building digital audiences and successful products, in brand expansion, revenue diversification, e-commerce, lead-generation and more. Here is the story of U.S. News & World Report’s resurgence, as told through a two-part interview—Part I with U.S. News Editor Brian Kelly, and Part II with Publisher Kerry Dyer, shown here.


Part II: Interview with Kerry Dyer, Publisher, U.S. News & World Report

mediaShepherd: What is the brand’s largest source of revenue?

Kerry Dyer: Right now it would be display advertising—single source [online].

mS: What is its fastest-growing?

Dyer: That’s a good question. It’s all growing pretty fast. We don’t disclose specific figures either on growth or percentages, but display advertising is among the fastest-growing; licensing; as well as lead generation. All three of our main revenue streams are growing at a very healthy and very consistent rate.

mS: What are you finding that marketers are looking for today from U.S. News? Have things changed in recent years?

Dyer: Well, there’s been a lot of talk in the press and the media/advertising press of a changing consumer, and changing advertising needs and wants, but having been in the business for about 30 years, over half here at U.S. News and the other half at a large ad agency in New York—Young and Rubicam—honestly, I don’t see a lot changing.

In the end, marketers are still looking for finding the right audience at the right time and the right place that will engage with their messaging, and to find a need and a want for the right service. Fundamentally, that is the essence of advertising, and it really hasn’t changed all that much in my estimation.

mS: U.S. News moved into e-commerce with entities such as the Best Cars site, where U.S. News gets revenue when people buy cars through the site. Is this something new?

Dyer: It’s realtively new in the scheme of existence of U.S. News. We’re 80 years old. The U.S. News Best Cars site is about 5 years old, …
