  3. How can Christian Retailers do a better? We are blogging and facebooking and tweeting but don't seem to get business from it.

    Interestingly the most 'popular' posts are more inspirational than religious.

      Hi Kati, yes, we don't blog specifically about faith issues. We blog to help Christians accomplish their missions online so we blog about how to apply technology in ministry.

      How can Christian Retailers do it better? That's a great question and a very big question that can't fully be addressed here. My first suggestion would be to find retailers who are using social media well. Don't copy them, but watch them closely and see what you can learn from them and experiment with.

  4. Marvelous blog structure! How lengthy have you been blogging for? you make blogging glance easy. The entire glance of your site is fantastic, let alone the content material.
