Traffic To Your Site Is Critical

Posted June 28th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Uncategorized

No matter how good your copy is, and no matter how smart and creative you are, without traffic, you are dead. The fancy graphics don’t matter, the best products don’t matter either if you are not getting anyone to see the website. Traffic is always the end game for anyone trying to publish ads or sell anything on the web.It may seem like a mystery to a lot of people, because so many products focus on SEO or PPC or web management products, with not much time devoted to the nuts and bolts of getting links and traffic. Very few actually work on where the heck you get traffic from.

With any venture on the web, your number one source of traffic for the long run should be natural, search engine based. Why? Once you build your site up on a few keywords that get decent search volume, this traffic will be consistent. PPC and other methods are also fine, but are also subject to other risks ($$$ cost) that really have to be managed. You really just need links and content as the keys to getting higher ranking on Google.

One way to get links is through submitting niche articles related to your site to an article directory. Once you decide on what type of site you want to build to either sell stuff or just do AdSense revenue, it’s a good idea to write at least 20 articles of 300-500 words each. Make sure you have signed up for an AdSense and AdWords account before you write any articles, even if you have no plans to use them. Google has some terrific free tools for researching keywords and how often they are searched. You don’t need to spend days researching keywords BUT you really need to pick 3 or 4 keywords to focus on for your articles that get decent traffic in the search engines and are related to your topic. Another tool you can use that is free is PPC Web Spy. It allows you to see what keywords people are bidding on for their PPC ads on Google—again, they have probably done extensive work since they are paying for the ad clicks—no reason you cannot just benefit from their work and use some of those keywords.

Once this is done, make sure you write at least 5 articles per keyword grouping (2 for each article) with links to your site using those keywords. Do not try to tackle too many keywords at once—you need about 200-300 links realistically for each keyword to move up, depending on how popular they are it may take more. This is where any article directory comes in handy. You can submit your article which is then redistributed for you to others looking for content. This really does make getting links easier and faster in the long run—it just takes a bit of time to start working. In addition, you may want a tool to help rewrite your articles so that many different versions are distributed to thousands of sites. This is key to quicker ranking on the engines as the same thing distributed over and over just does not do the trick.

In addition to articles, you will want to submit your site on all the major social networks like Facebook, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Digg, etc., the more of that the better. You will need to create an account at all of them—this can be time consuming but only needs to be done once. You can search on Google for a list of the major ones. Once this is done, you can also use tools to automate posting to all of your accounts at once which saves a huge amount of time.

Almost anything you want to do on the web can be found for free, but there are tons of stuff that will save you huge amounts of time for a small fee. I usually opt for the time saving tools—in the long run it’s really worth it as there are only so many hours in the day. It’s always a trade-off of time and ease of use vs paying for it. Some stuff I do with free tools, some stuff I pay a monthly fee to use because it saves me so much time I could not achieve any goals without them.

Of course there are more than these 2 steps, but if these 2 are only done you should start seeing results in about a month. Longer term, even once you get ranking, you need a plan to continually feed articles to directories—not as often as the beginning, but you really want to do at least 1 per month per keyword to keep fresh links coming into the search engines. Over time, the content you distributed that Google finds links to disappears as sites go offline, content is deleted and replaced etc. That can’t be helped, but looking on the bright side, it gives you the opportunity to revisit and update the relevance of the articles and submit them again.

Is Your Marketing Bringing You Happy Customers?

Posted June 28th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Uncategorized

Many times we get so caught up in getting things done and getting them out there that we can forget to add the little touches. It’s those little things that can often mean the difference between good and great. For example, if you run an Internet business ensure that you have not just an e-mail but also a phone contact. This means that customers can reach a ‘live’ person. Perhaps you also offer several payment options instead of just the usual one or two.

That small touch goes a long way in creating happy customers. The added value being that a happy customer is usually a repeat customer. When you give your customers this top notch level of customer service they look to you for more great work, they tell their friends about the great service they received, and above all they grow to trust you and what you’re offering them.

Reaching a person is just one small touch that you can add to your business to make sure your customers are beyond satisfied. There are several easy to implement techniques that you can add to your business starting today to bring in and retain more customers.

The idea is not to only handle problems but deliver a level of customer service that goes beyond just handling problems that come up. You want to not only meet your client’s expectations of service, but exceed them whenever you can.

There’s no fancy software here, just honest and true techniques to help you build lasting customer relationships, growing your business almost effortlessly.

Things You Need To Know About The Best Internet Marketing Tools

Posted June 24th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Uncategorized

The huge number of the best Internet marketing tools often scares the aspirants to developing a business online. Lots of people who take up an Internet business don’t have the experience and knowledge necessary to deal with the technical details of web support, and therefore they have to invest in consultancy, strategies and tools in order to have a good return on investment, well-targeted visitors and quality traffic. In order to understand the way the best Internet marketing tools work, an outline of the online marketing campaigns is necessary. The aim of the campaigns is more than obvious but the procedure that attracts more customers takes a lot of time and work to implement.

Some of the best Internet marketing tools are available free of charge, while others can be downloaded after paying a fee. The Google Website optimizer is a software that enables the user to increase the site performance in search engines, allowing for a better ranking. Such a tool goes hand in hand with programs that provide analytical data about the visitors that access the websites, allowing for the creation of statistical results to reveal how many of the visits have resulted in transactions. This kind of Internet marketing tools come in a variety of more or less cost-effective formats, but they all require a fee.

Other Internet marketing tools contribute to the quality of the management or create better optimization options for search engine performance. Without such analytic items, the covering of all the data related to the market response for one strategy or another would become impossible in the context of the amount of data provided. Priorities can be more easily identified not to mention that the possibility to put together new plans of actions is seriously increased by the smart Internet marketing tools applications. From the most complex searches to the finding of the right keywords to use in a campaign, web site maintenance and promotion are more complex than you’ve ever imagined.

When choosing the best Internet marketing tools it is often advisable to have professional assistance, as one tool may be offered for free by some providers and charged by others. Therefore, hiring a consultancy agency to cover all aspects is a very smart move for the security and success of your business. Unfortunately, people who think that they can discover the best Internet marketing tools while expanding their business are more likely to fail than those who accept their limits and start from the premise that they need professional help to keep the business profitable.

People Love To Buy But HATE To Be Sold!

Internet Selling For Newbies

Well, ain’t that the absolute truth? “People love to buy but hate to be sold…”

Most of us dread the thought of dealing with a pushy or over bearing salesperson. There’s nothing fun about it, I think it’s because they just seem so fake.

It’s like the salesperson is just looking to make a quick commission and they could care less about whether or not making the purchase the right decision for you.

Have you ever felt that way before? Did you know that customers have the same apprehensions if not MORE when making a purchase on the Internet?

People are just afraid of making a bad decision even though they love buying things. Why am I telling you all this? Well, because knowledge is power and if you’re trying to make money online you need to understand how to SELL effectively.

Selling and marketing are 2 completely different things. Marketing just raises awareness while Selling causes people to buy.

The good news is Mike Filsaime and Omar Martin have just opened the doors to a complete training program on “Internet Selling“.

If you were given a proven method…yes, PROVEN way…to quickly increase your search engine traffic and drive more visitors to your site each and every day, would you take it?

Matt Callen has decided to reveal an incredibly powerful strategy of his for doing just that with little to no extra work on his part. It’s one of those “sit-it-and-forget-it” types of strategies that anyone can implement no matter what type of website or niche market they’ve got.

Matt has spent a good majority of his online business time researching and developing new ways to increase traffic to his site. And it’s proven to be one of the most influential reasons for his success online.

The more visitors he gets, the more customers he gets. It’s that simple.

Essentially, having or not having traffic to your site will make or break you. That’s why I think you’ll really like what I’m about to tell you.

Recently launched is Matt’s software program that will literally create dozens of HIGH quality articles from just one single article.

How does that increase traffic?

Simple.

When you submit these articles to article directories, place a backlink in them to your site, the search engines quickly pick them up and increase the credibility rank of your site, thus bringing in more visitors to your site.

This is just one of the strategies for using article marketing to bring in traffic. I’m personally using this software, and after just a short time, I’ve seen some great results already.

AdWords kicking your tush?

Posted June 20th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under PPC Strategies

Pay-Per-Click is undoubtedly THE advertising breakthrough of the 21st century. For the first time in history, you only show your ad to people already interested in what you’ve got to offer, and you only pay when they visit your “store”.

But because the search engines charge advertisers less money for truly relevant ads which get plenty of clicks (and add a penalty to all the others), it’s also the first time in history that managing a single ad campaign has become a full-time job!

You see, increasing competition, costs, and quality requirements imposed by the search engines make it VERY difficult for most people to get maximum profit from PPC.

Glenn Livingston is one of the most highly respected AdWords marketers in the United States. More importantly, he runs a large AdWords management agency and has seen literally hundreds of PPC accounts, so he really knows what works from a “dollars in vs. dollars out” vantage point (compare that to a lot of the self-proclaimed gurus out there “talking theory”).

Glenn also actually has very strong business background consulting for dozens of companies like AT&T, Lipton, Novartis, Whirlpool, and many, many more. And, also unlike many of the gurus you may have followed, Glenn’s successfully built 17 of his own AdWords projects in markets having NOTHING TO DO with Internet Marketing.

And he’s endorsed by the authors of BOTH major AdWords books.

But the best thing is, Glenn’s marketing philosophy is to deliver real value BEFORE he asks for the sale. Which means he’s put a tremendous amount of blood, sweat, and tears into creating these AdWords cheat sheets, videos, and MP3s.

So you really WILL get critically important AdWords insights about:

– Overcoming PPC Overwhelm –> Maximum Results in Minimum Time
– Sending Your Quality Score Demons Where They Belong
– Selecting Your Single Most Important Keyword
– Attracting Hyper-Responsive AdWords Visitors
– Optimizing the Content Network (the largest network in the world)
– Rolling Out to MSN, Yahoo, and Other PPC Engines
– Finding Your Single Most Important Competitor

And much, much more.

I can’t recommend this highly enough. It’s one of the truly FREE resources on the Internet that really does deliver value.

Entrepreneurs Can Get Help From Small Business Services

Posted June 19th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Uncategorized

Currently it is one of the greatest times to be a small business owner. Advances in technology has helped make it possible for small businesses to do now what not so long ago would have been deemed a fantasy. The increased power of online services has played a big part in all of this.

There are many business services available online that an entrepreneur can use to better compete with the larger companies. By harnessing technology, small businesses today can better position themselves to be pleasing to customers that are willing to buy their products or services.

A virtual hosted PBX phone system is just one example of utilizing online technology to make your business seem much larger than it really is. By giving you the means to have multiple extensions, send incoming calls to any working phone regardless of where it is located, and set up a virtual office having multiple people working for you at various places, a virtual phone system can really save the day.

Or how about a web conferencing solution? Start meeting with valuable clients, customers and coworkers online instead of face-to-face. Doing so has the potential to save you a great deal of cash, yet lets you hold those important meetings that are so critical to having a successful business.

If you are looking for more of an in-person experience, then use an online video conference service. This lets you hold meetings on the web using a simple webcam, letting you see and connect visually with those that you are meeting with.

Payroll is made easy with an online payroll solution. By giving you the means to enter employee payroll information via a web interface and tally payroll taxes automatically, doing employee paychecks has never been easier or quicker.

There are many reasons why a small business owner should look at more closely the small business services currently at one’s disposal to help in running a better company. Now is a great time to start your own business. Use technology to work for you and see how it is able to help your company be more successful.

Have you started with CPA yet?

Posted June 19th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Internet Marketing

CPA Arbitrage

If you want another simple but very effective way of marketing WITHOUT having to sell anything…one way to do that is through CPA networks.

This stands for Cost-Per-Action or Cost-Per-Acquisition.

And what that really means is that advertisers are willing to pay you top dollar simply for sending them traffic or generating leads.

Now, the leads could be a zip code, an e-mail address, their mailing address…anything. But, the important thing is that it doesn’t need to be a sale!

All you do is get targeted visitors cheaply and send them to an offer. You will then get paid a commission for every lead…

Let’s say as a traffic broker, you buy traffic from one place like AdWords for a price…30 cents per click. And let’s say a CPA offer pays you $3.00 per lead. Not all traffic you send will convert into a lead…

Let’s say 1 out of 4 visitors fill out your CPA offer. So you pay $1.20 to make $3.00 giving you a profit of $1.80.

This may seen like an insignificant amount, BUT if you find something that consistently converts like this example, you’ve struck gold!

Spend 100 times the amount for traffic $120, you’ll make $180 ($300-$120)…

Increase advertising by ten times and you’ll profit $1800!

And this is only one CPA offer!

And you can duplicate this same process with another offer…and then another…

AND THEN ANOTHER!

And I didn’t even mention about the offers paying $30+ dollars per lead! That is why you need to go in-depth with CPA Arbitrage on this most talked-about subject and see how Chris Cobb did it.

When so-called Web 2.0 graphics first came out, I asked myself, “Graphics are graphics. They can’t replace copywriting for better conversions. Impossible…what’s the big deal?”

I need to change my opinion now. Until you see these Web 2.0 video squeeze page templates, you haven’t reckon the full force of Web 2.0 web design.

All I can say is Dan Nickerson has truly created some of the best looking templates I’ve ever seen.

Highly professional design, easy to edit, and they even come with the source files (PSDs) for editing.

If you are ready to make the leap to using Video like the big dogs do…you’re going to need these templates.

How To Generate Unlimited Cash By Discovering Hidden Niche Markets

Posted June 17th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Uncategorized

Picking the right market can make or break your online business. People trying to get into Internet Marketing often stumble on this step, because they simply have no idea which markets are worth getting into. After all, nobody wants to spend months creating a website that ends up with very little traffic simply due to the fact that there is very little demand for the topic in question.

So, how does one go about finding hot niche markets? Some Internet marketers suggest choosing a niche that you are either enthusiastic about or are familiar with. While this may work out in the end, the more logical approach is to determine what people are actually searching for and base your Internet business around that. Learning the demand for a particular market is the very first phase.

One way to do this is to take advantage of some free tools, such as the free Wordtracker keyword tool. Type in a search term and Wordtracker will return the amount of daily searches for up to 100 related terms. You want to choose a term that has a decent number of daily searches—any number 10 or greater is worth considering. You may notice that the fewer number of words in a particular search term, the more searches it generally gets. Conversely, search terms that have more words receive less traffic, but are usually easier to rank for.

Next, go to Google and type one of the search terms in quotes. In the upper right hand corner of the search results page, you’ll see the number of pages indexed by Google that are exact matches for your search term. In general, when you are just starting out, try to target terms that have 20,000 or fewer competing pages when using exact match. Anything higher than this will require some heavy-duty SEO to rank well.

Once you find that a certain subject with good search volume and reasonable low competition, it’s time to head over to the Google AdWords Tool to learn the monetization potential of the market. Type in your term and see if there are many advertisers bidding for your search term. If there are a good number of advertisers, it suggests that there is indeed money to be made in your market. If you don’t find any advertisers, the search term you’ve selected may not be commercial in nature, and thus may be hard to monetize.

You’ve now uncovered a niche that has great search volume, little competition, and good monetization potential. Once you know how to find quality niches like these, you will be well on your way to raking in some big money online with niche marketing.

The History Of Money

Posted June 17th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Other Stuff

Money

Money is a medium that can be exchanged for goods and services and is used as a measure of their values on the market, including among its many forms as commodities such as gold, an officially issued coin or note, or a deposit in a checking account or other readily liquefiable account.

In the modern world we take money for granted.

However, pause for a moment and imagine what life would be like without money. Suppose that you want to consume a particular good or service, such as a Macbook. If money didn’t exist, you would need to barter with the retailer for the Macbook that you want.

Barter

Barter is the process of directly exchanging one good or service for another. In order to purchase the Macbook, you would need to have something to trade for the Macbook. If you specialized in growing orange, you would need to bring enough boxes of oranges to the retailer’s shop to purchase the Macbook. If the retailer wanted your oranges and you wanted his Macbook, then a double coincidence of wants would exist and trade could take place.

But what if the retailer didn’t want your oranges? In that case you would have to find out what he did want, for example, chicken. Then you would have to trade your oranges for chicken and the chicken for Macbook.

But what if the person selling chicken had no desire for oranges, but instead wants a cooker? Then you would have to trade your oranges for a cooker and it would take a lot of oranges to buy a cooker. Then you would have to trade your cooker for chicken and the chicken for Macbook.

But what if…??

It would become easier to make the Macbook yourself or to just do without.

The Evolution Of Money

Somehow at some point money became the universal commodity that has no other uses other than for value exchange.

Money evolved as a way of avoiding the complexities and difficulties of barter. Money is any asset that is recognized by an economic community as having value. Historically, such assets have included, among other things, shells, stone disks (which can be somewhat difficult to carry around), gold, and bank notes.

The modern monetary system has its roots in the gold of medieval Europe. In the Middle Ages, gold and gold coins were the common currency. However, the wealthy found that carrying large quantities of gold around was difficult and made them the target of thieves. To avoid carrying gold coins, people began depositing them for safekeeping with goldsmiths, who often had heavily guarded vaults in which to store their valuable inventories of gold. The goldsmiths charged a fee for their services and issued receipts, or gold notes, in the amount of the deposits. Exchanging these receipts was much simpler and safer than carrying around gold coins. In addition, the depositors could retrieve their gold on demand.

Goldsmiths during this time became aware that few people actually wanted their gold coins back when the gold notes were so easy to use for exchange. They therefore began lending some of the gold on deposit to borrowers who paid a fee, called interest. These goldsmiths were the precursors to our modern fractional reserve banking system.

Functions Of Money

Regardless of what asset is recognized by an economic community as money, in general it serves three functions:

* Money is a medium of exchange.
* Money is a measure of value.
* Money is a store of value.

Money as a medium of exchange: Used as a medium of exchange, money means that parties to a transaction no longer need to barter one good for another. Because money is accepted as a medium of exchange, you can sell your lemons for money and purchase the desired Macbook with the proceeds of the sale. You no longer need to trade lots of lemons for a cooker and then the cooker for chicken and then the chicken for the Macbook. As a medium of exchange, money tends to encourage specialization and division of labour, promoting economic efficiency.

Money is a measure of value: As a measure of value, money makes transactions significantly simpler. Instead of markets determining the price of oranges relative to cookers and to chicken and to Macbook, as well as the price of cookers relative to chicken and to Macbook, as well as the price of chicken relative to Macbooks (i.e. a total of six prices for only four goods), the markets only need to determine the price of each of the four goods in terms of money. If we were to add a fifth good to our simple economy, then we would add four more prices to the number of good-for-good prices that the markets must determine. As the number of goods in our economy grew, the number of good-for-good prices would grow rapidly. In an economy with ten goods, there would be forty-five good-for-good prices but only ten money prices. In an economy with twenty goods there would be one hundred and ninety good-for-good prices but only twenty money prices. Imagine all of the good-for-good prices in a more realistic economy with thousands of goods and services available.

Using money as a measure of value reduces the number of prices determined in markets and vastly reduces the cost of collecting price information for market participants. Instead of focusing on such information, market participants can focus their effort on producing the good or service in which they specialize.

Money as a store of value: Money can also serve as a store of value, since it can quickly be exchanged for desired goods and services. Many assets can be used as a store of value, including stocks, bonds, and real estate. However, there are transaction costs associated with converting these assets into money in order to purchase a desired good or service. These transaction costs could include monetary fees as well as time delays involved in the liquidation process.

In contrast, money is a poor store of value during periods of inflation, while the value of real estate tends to appreciate during such periods. Thus, the benefits of holding money must by balanced against the risks of holding money.

Summary

Money simplifies the exchange of goods and services and facilitates specialization and division of labour. It does this by serving as a medium of exchange, as a measure of value, and as a store of value.

Your Own Product In 1 Minute…

Posted June 14th, 2009 by Nelson Tan. Filed under MRR/PLR

Today will be remembered as the day that Internet Marketing changed forever!

Never before in history were you able to just “THINK” of a product and have it delivered to you in LESS than *one* minute.

Breakthroughs that make a REAL difference in peoples’ businesses rarely happen, and this is clearly one of them.

If you were given the power to click a button today and almost instantly find a product in *ANY* niche that you can sell as your own, that would obviously be HUGE right?

That is precisely what this new tool does for you.

It’s actually the largest, SEARCHABLE database of resell rights & private label rights products on the planet!

It is called Resell Rights Fortune and it opens its doors for a limited number of people TODAY.

Here is a small sample of the things Resell Rights Fortune will give you immediately:

– Get your own product in seconds
– Never pay for another product, ever (all the new products are bought for you)
– Make more profits faster
– Build a huge targeted list easily

Obviously this resource is going to give you a significant edge over the competition. It is like having access to all Resell Rights Products ever created or that will be created in the future.

I know you probably get a lot of e-mails hyping up the next “big thing”. If you dismiss this thinking its just another ho-hum offer, you’ll be making an enormous mistake.

It took the developer 14 months and over $54,300 to build this system and hunt down all the products.

Get all the details and join Resell Rights Fortune while you still can.
