First let me “share” that we just created a new Facebook Page for Gloves-Online.com. (Link Below)
Yes, we all know that Facebook use has reached absolutely absurd numbers and receives more than 2.7 billion “likes” each day and accounts for 1 of every 5 pages views on the net.
However, a “dynamic website” which incorporates a blog forms the foundation of all social media marketing. My Blog website is where my glove content is published and ultimately where the conversions happen.
It’s not that I think that Blogging is better than Facebook but I think the two should work hand in hand. (Pun intended)
Want to know my main reasons for using in keeping the Glove-Guru Blog alive?
Stability: No frustrating changes to deal with (Facebook changes are fast and furious) and my blog is self-hosted, stable, consistent and dependable.
SEO: When done right, blogging improves my search ranking through in-bound links & key-word optimization. Facebook doesn’t contribute to search ranking, FB “only” leads to traffic to my content and our gloves. Plus my blog is part and parcel to our main web site.
Long Shelf Life: My glove blog articles have a long shelf life because they last for years. FB updates only last a few days at most.
News Feed: FB decides who uses my updates but on my blog anyone and everyone can see my content and glove news.
Content Hub: My blog is the hub of my glove content. FB only helps me distribute and promote my content and glove news.
My blog offers more value via helpful tips, advice, and glove education. A compelling link on my blog will most likely get clicked rather than ignored on a FB page. Plus my glove news stays on my blog for years and has remained on my blog since 2008.
Reach Multiple Audiences: My blog includes RSS email feeds to my subscribers, site visitors, and all social networks. On Facebook I can only reach the people that ‘like” my page.
So, this week I taught my Glove-Guru Blog to talk to our Gloves-Online Facebook page so everyone and anyone can decide what they “like” better. By the way, it wouldn’t hurt to “like” us on FB if you like us.
Today, I’m delighted to announce that Gloves-Online is now an authorized dealer of the new Black & Decker Glove Line.
Most everyone is aware of the iconic world-renown Black and Decker brand of consumer and professional high-end tools used in construction, manufacturing and woodworking. The good news for you and for us is that Black & Decker is developing new and beneficial work gloves for the consumer and industrial users.
This new line of gloves is part and parcel to our addition of the DeWalt line of gloves(DeWalt is a division of Black & Decker) which I announced here in December.
But that’s not all about the new Black & Decker glove line! Watch closely for my announcement about the newest, most useful, and most practical work and garden glove you’ve ever seen! It’s also designed for both men and women. More news on that is coming in days since giving you a peek now takes away all the fun and excitement.
Easter is almost upon us and this is just a reminder to place your order for your white gloves early.
Every year we see last minute expensive express shipments and by ordering early you can avoid these charges.
Remember, we carry the largest selection of white gloves available for ladies, gentlemen, and children.
The following are a few helpful links:
Reminder: Since the winter weather is still menacing us and your local shops may no longer have gloves in stock, you may want to check out some special pricing on our winter gloves – while supplies last.
Apple reported today that they sold 48 million cell phones just in the last quarter which is an amazing amount to comprehend by most of us.
Nonetheless, as a major supplier of cell phone and touch screen gloves since 2008, we hope that this translates to more cell phone glove sales. The artic weather blast hitting North America this week can’t hurt either.
If you are in this winter zone and use your cell phone outdoors then check out our special offers on cell phone gloves. We would like to move our remaining inventory so we can make room for our spring collection.
I think talking about the spring and a sale is warm and “maybe” cool, too.
In September I was happy to boast about reaching the astonishing milestone of One Million page views since January 1, 2012. That benchmark was shattered with our holiday glove sales and we ended up with a remarkable 1,714,759 customer page views by December 31st.
As a reminder to those less fluent with internet analytics, page views are the conservative metric when evaluating web site analytics. The example being that if we counted actual hits, the number would be 7 to 10 times higher due to images, etc. You can see this in the chart which I added for the doubtful.
In conclusion, I wish to thank everyone for your support and your business and I wish you the best in the New Year.
We’ve got some exciting new gloves to talk about this year so I’ll be back in touch shortly. In the meantime, you might like to take a look at some good Winter Gloves.
Happy New Year, We Glove You at Gloves-Online.com.
It’s been awhile since I’ve written a reminder about the essential winter activity gloves and this week’s winter storm became the cue. The recent days order trends for winter gloves is another reminder.
My one – and now well known – prominent word about Winter Gloves: WATERPROOF!
Most shoppers for real winter activity gloves fail to purchase Waterproof Gloves. I’m referring to the winter gloves you wear during outdoor activities such as shoveling snow, sledding, and hiking. The same applies to winter construction and work gloves.
Link to our popular models: Winter Waterproof Gloves
In conclusion, make sure your winter gloves are WATERPROOFor they will not be cold proof.

Don’t let the name fool you!
The brand of these gloves, as you know, stands for high-end tools for the construction, manufacturing and woodworking industries but don’t let the name of these gloves fool you. They are great for all trades besides auto mechanics.
I’ve personally tested these work gloves and they are designed so well they feel like a second skin and the grip that these gloves offer is unmatched by any mechanic glove I’ve tested. They offer the best in fit, feel, and function which is my three main benchmarks for work gloves. A bonus feature is the knuckle and back of hand protection.
I won’t bother you with the many features and benefits here since you can read about the gloves at this link:
Only a handful of authorized retailers across the country have been allocated initial production inventory and we are proud to be one of them.
Thinking of buying your crew a Christmas present? We are also offering a special “WORK CREW” 6 Pack introductory offer.
Happy Holidays, the Glove Guru
Many phone calls this year about cell-phone and touch screen gloves has been largely generated with questions about three new leather models we just introduced.
The simple answer: “No! You do not have to remove the gloves.”
I won’t bore you with all the technical mumbo jumbo since I know it’s more important to see the gloves we are taking about this year.
The gloves getting all the kudos are three new models by the legendary Grandoe Glove Company and we offer both men’s and woman’s models. Another kicker – NO premium upcharge!
Now you can keep your hands warm when you’re out in the cold and using your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch without taking your gloves off – it’s possible with TouchTec-enabled gloves. You can even use the mouse pad on your favorite laptop computer. Try doing that with normal gloves on.
In closing, order today before they sell out.
Today, I’m delighted to announce that Gloves-Online is now an authorized dealer of the DeWalt Glove Line.
Most of you are already aware of the world-renown DeWalt brand of professional high-end power tools for the construction, manufacturing and woodworking industries. The good news for you and for us is that DeWalt is making a major effort to rework their current line of mechanics and work gloves.
The other good news is that this effort is being championed by an old glove-guru friend of mine, Dan Branson. Dan was hired this past year by DeWalt to manage and develop the new glove lines and, frankly, I couldn’t be happier. I can guarantee you that you will soon see some of the best glove innovations in work gloves and I anticipate announcing them as they hit the market.
