Light for millions – the Solar Bottle Bulb

The men stand on the rusty roof of sheet metal hut in the slums of Manila.

In their hands a hammer and chisel – making a whole into the roof.

The owners look a little skeptical – will it work? Long have they been waiting for this moment… for the hole in the ceiling … and the glowing bottle, which moves slowly through the opening.

We at SALTO International are really looking forward to seeing many many new posts and comments from you on our platform!

SEO of Salto International’s Website

It took quite a while to figure out what the best way of a gentle “redesign” of our website should be. The feedback we received stated that was SALTO Internationals Website was cluttered and confusing.

Spent a lot of time on keyword research – a quite tedious job considering that some of the keywords for shoes or women shoes have more 65,000,000 hits as competition on google. So we took at different approach; looking for keywords that have more than 20,000 global searches but still as less as possible real competition.
We have used the Google Adwords tool to find these words.

In a second step after some more ranking and checking we have then grouped the products into 7 Main Categories:

All other ladies Fashion products, High Class promotional items and Learning Toys have been moved into the Specials section. They are still available but they are not the main focus any more. Still important but not number 1 priority.

All these activities should help our customer for easier more target orientated navigation on our Website. We know how value able your time is, so we do not want to waste your time browsing through window by window to find your perfect model for your Shoes wholesale or shop.

The work continues as we are always looking for the latest in Ladies Shoes fashion. That’s why we started our journey to attend the fashion week in Milan, Italy – The Shoe Event in the city of fashion. There we will check out the latest Fashion in women shoes for the next seasons which you will see first on SALTO Internationals Website, so be sure you check our site regular for the latest.

Preparing Salto International for 2011

When the Webiste of Salto International did go live in May 2010 it was quite a truly international event. The basic design idea came from Austria during Christmas break, additional input from China, the first design drafts came then from UK, the final design and programming was done in India. All these activities controlled and managed via email, skype and other “modern day IT gadgets”.
The result is what you can see at the moment. We tried all kind of different things to improve the website page ranking, some worked and some didn’t.We have added links and icons linking to blog sites and have set up the Salto Facebook page.

Over the past month we have collected a lot of feedback from customers and other visitors. All this feedback confirmed what we were already suspected. The page looks nice but it is also a little confusing. People are asking “what do you actually sell?” or “Are you a webshop?”. A lot of nice pictures on the front page but very little room for information for our customers – on one hand its looks like a catalog (which actually is not) and on the other hand it shows many many products.

So we decided to give the site a general “re-vamp”. The looks and the design will be the same but it have more information for the visitors, a news section with integrated blogging function and more.

We also use this blog to ask for your opinion. How can we do better? what would you change on the current site?


Salto International is a supplier for whole sale and shops and it specialized on all kind of shoes for women. This includes high heels, pumps, flats, women’s sandals, peep toes and many more styles and designs.
The customer can either select from our existing product line or submit their own designs for a factory quotation.
We offer different price and quality ranges, so each and every customer can find the right shoe for their business.
The styles are inspired from the latest Italian fashon shows in Milano and other italian fashion metropoles. We are regular visitors of fashion shows like MICAM in Milano Italy, GDS fair in Duesseldorf Germany or for example the Expo Riva Shoe

Please send us your feedback – how can we get better!

Linking tumblr to facebook page & other IT tricks

Nowadays everybody is talking about social networking, viral marketing, page linking stuff. Well I thought ok – if everybody can do this so easy, then for sure it’s no problem for me.
I thought – now struggling around since hours to get this blog automatically linked and updated on our Salto International’s Facebook page. Its said and described as soo easy but so far nothing happens. *grrr**

One doesn’t need to be a marketing expert or advertising guru to understand that you can have the best products and services in the world but if nobody can find you – you won’t make a dime. So – lets roll up the sleeves and get things public.

Lets show the world what SALTO International actually can offer. On first sight it may look like another sourcing/buying agent for women’s fashion shoes and sandals. But unlike many others we combine the best of two worlds. European background and regular access to the top shoe fashion shows in Italy to ensure our styles are the latest in fashion. And on the other hand extensive contacts to shoe manufacturer to ensure you get the best conditions and quality.

But that is not all – unlike other companies where you can only buy what they have, we offer our customer also the option of their own designs made by our manufacturer. Where else can you find that?

Salto International’s dedication to the beautiful things in life does not end with shoes only – no it extends also to clothing and knitwear. And in the near future also hand bags. Everything todays fashion women needs.

We are not an online shop, where you can buy super cheap single pairs of your favorites shoes – our strength is to supply wholesalers and dealers with larger quantities. This is where you can really benefit from our expertise.

Check our Website for the first inspiration and if you want to have a sneak peek for new products before the others can see them, then you should sign up on our Facebook page.

Coming back to the original topic and the auto update – lets give it another try and see if it works now. One thing is quite clear – it take some more time to get this perfect. It will eventually.
