It’s Great To Be Able To Blog Again–But!

Thank all of you who continue to be loyal in reading my blog and for sending me encouraging messages and messages for more information.

I’ve been very busy mentoring, working on campaigns and helping others with a whole myriad of projects. Therefore, I haven’t had much time to work on my blog.

Though I’m still currently very busy at the moment, I will continue to read and answer your messages and I will blog as often as I can until things get back to normal and I can get back to blogging regularly.

The work that I’m doing is very fulfilling, uplifting and rewarding. I’m in the middle of helping quite a few people who are less fortunate to get settled, get their projects started and I’m helping others finish their projects.

I’m doing a lot of training as well. I’m sure things will calm down in the very near future and everything will be back to normal.

Don’t worry, you can rest assured that I’m keeping up on what’s going on in the internet marketing world, will be able to jump right back in and be up to date on everything, and will be able to provide you with very useful information once I’m finished with what I’m currently working on.

Until next time… take care.


Want Extra Money? Try Internet Marketing

Internet marketing is one of the fastest growing businesses in the world today.

A person can start many organizations on the internet and be very successful if they start their internet marketing business off the right way.

You don’t have to be an expert in the beginning, however, you do want to become an expert in your chosen niche.

You need to research and study the niche you choose in order for you to give expert advice on the subject.

If you apply yourself and study your chosen niche you will gain more insight into that particular subject.

You also gain an edge over others who blog or write about the subject on a casual basis.

Your main objective in internet marketing is to provide something of value to your customers. Ultimately, you want to be able to bring in sales and make ongoing profit.

In order for you to do that you need to be able to build and maintain a large customer base.

You have to provide the customer with a product or service that is beneficial to them.

Most people who search the internet are usually looking for information or an answer to a problem or situation they have had or currently have.

You should strive to be able to provide that product or service.

If it’s a product that you provide, you should have produced or used the product yourself, and be satisfied with it before you can present it or speak convincingly about it to others.

The best product you can provide is one that you produced yourself. One of the easiest products to produce is an information product such as an e-Book.

You should never make the mistake of promoting a product that you haven’t used or aren’t familiar with yourself as it can produce devastating results.

If it’s a service you provide, you should strive to be able to provide that service better than anyone else, as there will be competition no matter what niche you choose.

In order to succeed in internet marketing you will need to get targeted traffic from a targeted audience.

Therefore, it’s in your best interest to choose a subject or product that you know well and one that you truly believe in.

In order to get targeted traffic that can convert your website visitors into customers, you need a very good sales page.

So make sure you put a lot of thought into the creation of your sales page and don’t forget to test it several times.

If you are unfamiliar with or can’t create your own sales page, you can have someone (preferably a copy writer) create one for you. Of course you will have to pay to have that done.

You can promote your website in several ways. Some of them are, writing articles and submitting them to article directories and forums, commenting on other websites, email marketing, campaigns, etc.

There are numerous internet marketing advertising strategies.

Experiment with several of them and choose the one that’s right for you.


Want Extra Income? Use Articles and Free Article Directories

Numerous authors and article writers have found that by using various article directories they get to promote their articles free of charge.

Articles are usually put into article directories by the person who wrote them or the person who owns the copyright to them.

The author of the article uses their own byline and usually places it under the article they’ve written. This lets anyone who read the article know who wrote or owns that article.

The authors byline also provides the article reader with information on where and how they can be contacted, and it provides the authors website address where the reader can go to get more information.

The best articles that you can have are the ones that you write yourself and you can make money with your articles by placing them in free article directories.

However, you don’t have to write your own articles. You can use various resell rights products or you can hire a ghost writer to write articles for you.

Of course if you’re just starting out in internet marketing and you goal is to make money, you want to avoid hiring a ghost writer in the beginning as it can become expensive.

When you write your own articles you become more familiar with the subjects as you do the research to write them.

Your readers will soon recognize you as an expert in your field and that will drive them to your website to get more information on the subject(s) you write about that they’re interested in.

You will also be able to market other services that you provide by writing articles, thereby creating multiple strings of income.

One article could potentially bring you tons of exposure for your website as well as many new clients.

As others who write on the same subject or who are interested in the articles you write re-post your articles from various article directories on their websites, they help drive traffic to your website.

You receive the extra traffic to your website because they have to include your byline whenever they re-post any of your articles.

This creates a win-win and a very profitable networking situation for you and other authors and article writers as you can also re-post articles they’ve written on your website.

This helps drive traffic to their website to give them more exposure as well.

Placing your articles in numerous free article directories has the potential to give you unending exposure all over the internet and on many websites other than your own.

There are some article directories that charge a fee for using their service. However, the free ones work just as well.

Take your time and visit the different article directories. Each article directory has its own rules and guidelines so make sure you read them before you place your articles on them.

Do your homework first to ensure that you will be able to start out on the right track and continue to post your articles properly and successfully.


Want To Increase Your Income? Recommend Affiliate Products

There are numerous ways to increase your income.

However one of the easiest and fastest ways to increase your bottom line is with the use of affiliate products.

Affiliate Marketing is a somewhat easy process to learn as many marketers have discovered.

Marketers know that they can advertise, promote and sell more of their products very effectively by allowing others to recommend and/or sell their products.

In return they reward the affiliate(s) with a percentage of the sale of the product.

Many of you have already established a list of customers you currently work with, and some you’ve worked with in the past. Some you’ve worked with for quite a while, some for a little while and others may be fairly new.

At the same time you are constantly seeking new prospects and customers.

Many of your customers already trust you, and they’re most likely going to trust your judgment when you choose affiliate products to recommend to them.

Knowing that you are trusted by your customers is very valuable. Therefore, it is absolutely in your best interest to recommend only those products that you have used personally.

OR…only recommend products by people you know and trust who are also known to produce quality products.

NEVER recommend a product just for the sake of promoting it. That could prove to be disastrous.

You can learn how to make “affiliate marketing” work for you, and it will be easier for you to turn a good profit over and over again.

The first rule of thumb is, study the field you plan to pursue, learn it well, and when you promote a product , sound like an expert in that field.

If and when you promote an affiliate product, try to make it a product that goes well with or is close to a product of your own.

Promote the product honestly. Promote both the good and the bad sides of a product (if there are any), and make sure your customers and prospects are made aware of the benefit they will reap if they choose to use the product.

Make sure there will be proper product support for the affiliate product should your customers or prospects decide to purchase the product.

This will help put their minds at ease knowing they will have someone to talk with should they have questions about the product.

If there is something that you particularly like or dislike about a product that you’re promoting, make sure you share it with your customers and prospects.

It will make you more credible and believable and your customers will thank you for your honesty.

As long as you are up front and honest with your customers and prospects, they will be willing to purchase from you and purchase products that you recommend.

Offer your customers and prospects solutions to their problems that they can’t find anywhere else and don’t be afraid to use endorsements from other experts in that particular field.

Do your homework. Make sure you get factual data to back up what you are saying about an affiliate’s product and get testimonials from others who have used the product as well.

Don’t ever Hype or Over-Hype any product and be aware that many of your customers and prospects may know just as much or more about an affiliate’s product than you.

Promote your affiliate products the same as you would your very own product with freebies and all. At the same time you’re promoting an affiliates product, promote one of your own complimentary products as well to go along with it.

Go ahead and try affiliate marketing by recommending products made by others. This could prove to be very profitable for you.


Want To Make Money with Articles? Tips To Help You Get It Done (Part 2)

Pick Relevant Articles For Your Website And Use Keywords

The articles you write should be meaningful and relevant to the theme of your website. They should also be informative and very useful to the reader.

To ensure that you get traffic driven to your websites successfully and to be able to be profitable with your article writing, always make sure that you pick your articles very carefully.

There are many websites that provide free article content. However, many of them don’t or won’t allow you to make any changes to the article.

That’s why it’s always best to do your own research and write you own articles.

You need to use keywords throughout your articles and in your article title.

Keywords are words used as a reference point for further information or as an indication of the contents of a document.

Keywords help people find your website in the search engines by typing in words that are related to a certain topic.

When a spider crawls through a search engine and sees certain keywords several times throughout your article, it will make the determination that your article is or may be useful to someone searching for that particular keyword.

For example, if someone was looking for shoes and just typed the word shoes into a search engine, they would most likely get thousands, hundreds of thousands or millions of results.

But if they typed in something like purple elephant shoes, they would most likely get a much smaller list of results.

That’s why it’s very necessary to include keywords in your title and several times throughout the body of your article.

The lack of the use of keywords will result in driving very little traffic to your website and you will have low rankings in the search engines.

Using relevant keywords in both your title and throughout your article will help drive a greater amount of traffic to your website.

You want to learn to use keywords in your title that will help drive a great amount of traffic to your website.

Yet, they should be keywords that are not too competitive to help you rank high in the search engines.

Keywords that are too competitive will cause you to have low ranking in the search engines and you will probably never get close to being in the search engines top rankings.

You want to make sure that you optimize your articles. However, you want to make sure that you never over optimize them.

Over optimizing is known as keyword stuffing.

Keyword stuffing will be detected by a spider crawling the search engine, will think you are trying to get your article placed high in the search engine by tricking it, and will penalize your page and your website for it.

As a matter of fact if you participate in keyword stuffing too much, your other page rankings can be affected and you could be taking a chance on getting your website blacklisted in some search engines.

You also want to use keyword density which is the number of times you place your keyword in your article.

Though there are numerous guides and resources you can use to help you with keyword density, you are the only one who can determine the density you want to use to make your article writing profitable.

Using the right keyword density in your articles will help your articles get noticed and ranked higher in the search engines.

The results are that you will more than likely be able to write articles that will be proven to be great articles as well as articles that prove to be profitable for you.
