Maybe you’re wondering why you should become a member of Eclectics Marketplace (EM). This information might help you decide.
One of the things we do at EM is help promote you. Each member gets posted to popular Facebook pages in rotation, driving traffic to both their profile page on EM, as well as hopefully clicking through to their own sites. While we can’t guarantee sales from these click-throughs, it is at least generating traffic that otherwise wouldn’t happen. We do this at no additional charge to our members, because we understand that if they succeed, EM will succeed as well.
In November of 2020, EM posted a promotion on behalf of our member to Faire Relief 2020, a group on Facebook with over 50,000 members. We have been tracking the results of that posting through google analytics, with the following results. Note: once leaving EM, we have no information on what they do on the member’s site, but it does result in traffic that they otherwise might not receive.
Upon completing that post, EM began receiving hits from that Facebook post, currently at 70 hits in less than a week, 19 of those hits resulted in a direct link to that member’s personal sites.

The Future and Power of Eclectics Marketplace
The goal of EM is to drive traffic to our site, allow people to search and find what they are looking for, and THEN drive traffic to your site(s). Think of us as a specialized search engine. As we grow, we fully expect the other general search engines like google and bing to begin indexing YOUR profile pages on our GROWING site, so that they improve your search scores because of OUR platform. Through the use of Search Engine VOODOO (that’s my technical term), we work to improve YOUR search scores, at the same time we improve OUR search scores. The end result is the same, higher visibility for YOU, and hopefully not being buried on page 30 of google search results.
The end result is that you get higher visibility on all of the major search engines, allowing people to find you, and purchase goods or services from you. And isn’t that the goal? To make some money and try and live a life we want to live?
