Toys Toys Toys

Figuring out which gift works best is one of the greatest ways to waste your time. The task seems tedious as you ramble along aisles and shops to try looking for that perfect gift. This is what my boyfriend used to say whenever we go looking for stuff to give on Christmas. One of his best advices when shopping for gifts is to opt for collectible toys and vintage items, because they seem to have a way with everyone, no matter what age groups they belong. He admits he is more addicted and obsessed with vintage toys and mini figures than me. In fact, miniature toy figures of characters from Star Wars, Game of thrones, Transformers and other nerdy stuff pile up and clutter his shelves. He’s never ever considered donating any of them. Furthermore, he’s not excited in giving his toys away as a gift, even to me, his own girlfriend. It seems like he plans to put up a museum for his toys.

Needless to say, I secretly convinced him of getting rid of his addictions. I opened up his mind by telling him, that Collectible toys are a quite the burgeoning trend for the toy and gift market. Somehow, I was able to talk him into it. I told him that it’s not the original vintage toys that can earn quite a fortune. It’s the new range of replica toys that are the new craze today. These toys are designed to stir up nostalgia among the older generation and excitement among young people.

He somehow got interested in putting up his own toy collectible website that is intended for toy aficionados. He has also given a thought about selling his toys online to earn a living. He thought that kids and adults would come out looking for his website to see his awesome toys.

After pouring out his hard work and best efforts on his DIY website, he realized that he’s only seeing very little traffic visiting his website every day. He got even more frustrated after seeing that the figure didn’t change much even after a couple of years. We tried searching for his site on the internet, and we finally figured out the reason why the site hasn’t been seen by people. I would describe his place on internet like the depths of the Pacific Ocean. He’s just hard to find on the last page of any search browsers. It’s a good thing though that one of our nerdy friends suggested that we sought the help of online marketing Professionals to improve our rankings. After doing a quick search for SEO Experts in Minneapolis, I found a company.

So we contacted one and sure enough, they confirmed my suspicions on why my boo’s site didn’t have any visitors. Aside from that, they also taught us what needs to be done and improved on the site. I didn’t realize the importance of SEO back then. I thought it was just another waste of time. So I asked my boyfriend, if he’s willing to invest. He was doubtful at first but he said, “Why not give it a try?” And true enough, after just a couple months of working with those experts, we’ve been earning much from his toy collectibles. I secretly want to thank them for helping me get rid of his addictions.
