8 Little known Blog Tips That will Save You Time & Money

You have just finished setting up your blog by creating quality content, uploaded your logo and presented  some of your affiliate promotions, products, and services . You have added propositions and promos to catch your target audience’s attention. You have achieved the do's and don’ts of building an authority site. But why isn’t your blog a major success?

Maybe you’re not planning which is the key to the best promotion for your blog Here are 8 tips that will save you time and money.

1. Video isn't just for Vloggers, it is imperative you use video for almost every post you publish. The reason is that most people like video. It takes less time to watch and listen to a video than read the content. But if your a blogger, word press doesn't make it easy, to organize your vid content. Even with the best HTML 5 video plugin installed. That is until now...

Vivek Sharma and Yaz Stone, created the EZ WP Plug-N-Player, which will self host your video's on your server without the need of scripts or a special hosting account.

it is Simple and Easy to Use: - Upload Videos in your Wordpress Website like any other media and grab the media links, videos can be in MP4, WebM, OVG Format, use simple short codes to put them in any post or page.

Highly Customizable: - Customize video to auto play, hide controls, add poster, loop it or play as muted video
Works on Any Device:- Your videos will be responsive and will look good on any of your devices like mobile, android, PC, Tablet, iPad or iPhone, optionally you can also set the width of these videos height will auto adjust to make it responsive. Click here to learn more about the EZ WP Plug-n-Player plugin.

2..SEO Content Strategy: This is a good long term strategy that you can do with your content. Once you decide on a topic use Google's keyword planning tool to find "keywords" that your potential audience is searching for. Use a medium keyword (less competition) in your title and once every 100 words and at the end of the post

2.  List your blog in all of the top search engines and directories. This would give your blog the traffic you deserve and always wanted. Make sure to check your blog ranking to know whether or not this type of free promotion is working for you.

3.Make a deal with other bloggers on bloggerlinkup.com and begin sharing each others content as guest bloggers and cross promotions with advertising or even better small reports or email swaps, which could help both blogs.

4. Local Free Classified ads could boost the promotion of your blog especially if you are selling psychical goods or services . These ads could be seen by other people who you are not targeting for, but may be interested in your services. I would start with Craigslist.org for your local area even if the service you provide can be used around the world.

5. There is something to say about your local market. Local businesses will see you as one of "us," and not some stranger from another part of the country or world. They will trust you and respect your service because you are local.

6. Free and low-cost internet banners are spread all through out the World Wide Web. Banners that pop-up at the top of a page or in a separate window would automatically catch your target audience’s attention. Heck even banners that pop under sneak their way into your audiences view.
This tactic would mix great with linking up with other bloggers. Give it a try.

7. If your blog and its free promotion did not work even after accomplishing these methods, analyze your blog. Track down all visitors, advertisements, and transactions. Then locate errors in with your blog. Upload new content at least 3 times a week to your blog.  By continuously providing new content for you're audience keeps your blog from going stale and while keeping it updated.

Be ready to try the methods that work for you over again and scheduled them into your regular traffic system.It has always been said that the best things in life are always free. I would have to agree with that statement. And as soon as your free blog promotion proves to the audience its worth keeping, then you’ll believe it’s true as well.

Okay, if you have any blog traffic tactics that work well for you, tell me about it in the comment section below.
Or if you have any questions related to today's post ask away and I will give you my best answer. Really I won't hold any secret traffic tactic back.

Thank you for reading Save Time and Money with these 8 blog Tips that will save you time.

Blogger Blogging Part 1

Blogger Blogging What you should know

Setting up a blog is remarkably simple.  I recommend that you use Google's "Blogger.com" platform. That is what I am using and your about to learn how to setup a blogspot blog, just like the one you're reading here.

Here are 5 great reasons why I suggest Blogger over WordPress:

  1. Free to use
  2. Don't have to fork out any money to get started.
  3. NO hosting fee's
  4. Don't have to learn how to FTP or use C-Panel to get up and running.
  5. Integrates easily with Google Plus, YouTube.com, and other Google related sites.
  6. HTTPS: When you have a self hosted blog or any website with your own domain name and hosting, your site is not certified secured, unless you pay for that certificate with your hosting company. I don't know exactly how much that costs, but I imagine it is expensive. Search engines may give you better rankings when you set up a blog with Blogger, because you will be taking advantage the Blogspot authority. And because  blogspot is certified secured, that means you won't get an annoying message from your browser that states: The site you want to go to is not SAFE. Go Back to Saftey.

Let's face it, you are probably a little confused at this point, if you have read any blogging books, or some of the bigger blogging blogs such as John Chow or Darren Rowse "Pro-Blogger."
Most of these Top bloggers suggest using self hosted wordpress blog.

This is fine, especially if you already have a self hosted site up and running. Keep on keeping on, blogging buddy :)

So, what changed. Simply,  I set up Blogger blogs as a link wheel's to my self hosted Wordpress blog and found that those Blogger blogs of mine began outranking my main sites.

I used to think this way myself. I have had several self hosted word press blogs starting with my first plumbing blog that was actually a direct response blog, set up for capturing leads for my plumbing business. then something changed, I began testing Blogger blogs with affiliate marketing and found that my results were even better than hosting my own site.

However, I really suggest that if you are new to blogging or don't want to spend $100 or so right now that you set up a Blogger blog at blogspot.com, over using a self hosted WordPress blog at the start. The main reason many bloggers tell you to set up a blog on your own property is because, Google, at anytime, can shut your blog down without notice.

It happens, it happened to my mentor Marlon Sanders.

If you decide to go down the path of self hosted WordPress blog platform,  then you will need buy a domain, hosting and learn how to set it all up or hire a webmaster to do it for you.
That means you’re going to spend around $50 to $100 and if you decide to outsource the process much more.

Let’s keep it simple and free until you grow and are making some money before going the self hosted route.

The Blogspot Myth

The myth was free blogging sites like BlogSpot, were notorious for removing blogs at their whim, even if they were very high quality.  WordPress.com doesn’t allow you to put advertisements on your blog at all if they host it. This is why I went with Blogger, because Google owns Adsense and once you have some good traffic and plenty of posts you should apply for an Adsense publishers account.
This feature will be in your Blogger dashboard under the "earnings," tab when you are ready.

I have been using Blogger for a few years now and have never been removed from their network. In my humble opinion Google “Loves” itself, and they want you to use their tools.
Now if you decided to blog about illegal, or politically incorrect stuff then you might want to set up a self hosted blog.

I can’t promise that your site won’t be removed. I highly recommend keeping a copy of every post you make in a folder on your hard drive and back-up at least once every week. This is just incase you do need to go the self hosted route, or your blog does get shut down. WordPress, has a plugin that can import your blogspot blog over to a self hosted blog. This way the only thing you lose is time and some traffic.

Not the end of the world.

 Benefits to having a Blogspot blog

Back in the day, not that many years ago, Rob Benwell, created a product titled blogging to the bank. The first ebook, was about setting up affiliate blogspot blogs. 
One strategy he taught is to set up a blogger blog as your main website. Quick and easy.
Another strategy is to set up a Blogger blog as a method to get links to your main websites. 

When you set up a blog with Blogger it will be created as a sub domain on the blogspot.com domain. (For instance https://wrcato-webmaster.blogspot.com/ ) Notice the HTTPS.

That means you get all the link juice that comes from an authority site like blogger, which is a great thing for you.

To take advantage of this strategy for the search engines, you'd want to create a "mini blog" on Blogger that links back to your own website. This is a similar concept to adding articles to an article directory, though you have more control over the blog with less traffic, than using article directories sites.

The more blog posts you add, the more likely you are to be found by other Blogger.com users, by way of the search feature at the top right corner, just under the address bar, and you're website should rank more highly in the search engines because your blog is coming from such a respected domain.

Today, you can actually get traffic to your blogspot blog or your website of choice, by participating on social media sites such as FaceBook, twitter, Google Plus, a must for blogspot bloggers among a host of other Killer traffic strategies that this blog will get into at a later time. 

Money Blogging

Blogging is a great way to make money if you create profitable blogs.  The sad fact is, “most people just don’t understand what it takes to make a profitable blog.”
Blogging about what you had for dinner isn’t likely to make you a lot of money unless you’re already relatively well-known for something else, or a slapstick comedian that happens to go viral.

I’m not saying you should post some information about you and your personal life on your blog.  This can actually help your readers get to know you a bit better, which will make them want to visit your site even more.  But the majority of your posts should be geared toward a specific niche topic that has the potential to make you money.

From this section you're going to discover some ways to find profitable topics to blog about.  Some topics will just naturally be more profitable than others.  Finding the topics that will be highly profitable will make you more money with less work, and ultimately that is what you should be looking for.

I won’t actually say blogging is easy.  It’s easy compared to plumbing or flipping burgers.  And it’s easy when you think about the fact that a typical blogger spends only a few hours per week blogging.  But it does take work.

Don't be fooled to expect to make one post per month and make thousands of dollars, and you can’t expect to make ten posts and never touch the blog again and have it make you a full time income.
Most people who make money blogging actually run multiple blogs. I have at least, 6 blogs in various niches. It is certainly possible to make outstanding money with just one, but the odds are better if you run several.

I would suggest starting with just one, building it up to a nice income, and then starting another.  If you put up one after the other, there is a tendency to not promote each one adequately, and then they don’t make as much as they should.

It’s much better to start out with a single blog and promote it fully before moving on to the next one. Listening to this advice, will save you a ton of time, money and many headaches. With the pep talk out of the way, let's dive into how to choose a topic for your blog. 

Choosing a topic for your Blogspot blog

Choosing a topic is the first step in setting up your blogspot blog, or any type of blog you want to get started.  If you choose a topic that doesn’t have good profit potential, you’ll be wasting your time.
Not every topic will be well-suited for money blogging.  Just because a topic has a large amount of traffic doesn’t always mean it will make you a lot of money.

You need to look for topics with the following qualities:
  • Plenty of traffic available.
  • People who are willing to buy something.
  • Plenty of advertisers or affiliate programs available.
  • Reasonable level of competition.
When it comes to competition, I’m not afraid to go after the high-competition niches.  I have a lot of experience and I know I can select keywords that I can rank for and make money with.
When you first get started, you may want to stick to niches that don’t have so much competition.  It can be tough to rank well in the search engines when you’re just getting started, so choosing niches with a bit less competition can help you see results faster. that will keep you motivated.

Of course, you don’t want to choose phrases with too little traffic, either.  Sure, there shouldn’t be a lot of competition for those phrases, but ultimately they won’t make you much money, either.  Even if you got 100% of the traffic for a search term that got only 20 hits per day, it wouldn’t be a lot of traffic. 

Traffic = money

So the key is finding a good balance of traffic versus competition, at least in the beginning.  You need to search for niches that have thousands of searches per day overall, but that have several keyword phrases that don’t have an enormous amount of competition.

We’ll get into keyword research in the next section  When searching for niche ideas, there are several places you should look:

Amazon – I like to browse through the nonfiction books and magazines.  There are literally thousands and thousands of ideas here, and I can do keyword research on any niche that looks interesting and potentially profitable.  If there are numerous books and magazines about a topic, it’s probably profitable.

Discover A Hobby – This is a website I discovered years ago, that has over 100 hobbies and sports listed.  There are plenty of ideas here to get you started.

WebMD – This site is a medical site that lists symptoms and other information about practically every medical issue known to man.  There are thousands of niche ideas here, and medical niches are often extremely possible, especially if you’re running AdSense on your blog.

Libraries & Bookstores – I enjoy spending time in libraries and bookstores for recreational purposes, but I find plenty of niche ideas here as well.

Dummies.com – This site lists thousands of topics that you can build a niche blog around.  If a book has been published by For Dummies, it’s probably profitable.

Project Gutenberg – The most visited site when it comes to Public Domain eBooks. This site takes old out-dated books and preserves them digitally. You can find a ton of topics by browsing their catalog. Cooking-dog breeds-gardening, it’s all there waiting for you to start a niche blog. 

I like to make a list of about 20 or 30 topics, then do keyword research on those topics.  I find that blocking the work into similar tasks really helps me get things done more efficiently than researching one potential niche, then doing keyword research, then finding another niche, and researching it.

It’s also best to stick to niches you have an interest in for your first few blogs.  You don’t absolutely have to do this, but it does help you stick to your business plan if you have at least some interest in the subject.  It can get boring writing a lot about a topic you have no interest in.
Once you have a list of potential topics, it’s time to move on to keyword research.

The Key to the Blogosphere is Keyword Research

Keyword research is the process of finding out how much traffic potential phrases have, and how much competition those phrases have.  It is a critical component of blogging, especially in your early stages.

Most of your blog traffic will undoubtedly come from search engines early on.  Later, you might get more traffic from repeat visitors or referrals, but when you get started, search engine traffic is vital.
There are numerous places to do keyword research.  I only use free keyword resources, because I find them to be perfectly adequate, if not better than paid sources.  Plus, paid sources generally get their information from the free sources, anyway!

I use the Google keyword planning tool more than anything else.  Since it comes straight from Google itself, it is much more accurate than anything else in terms of keywords and traffic.
Since your going to be blogging using Blogspot, it makes sense to set up a free adwords account, so you can take advantage of the keyword planner tool.

Once you get your Adwords account set up, log right on into it. 

I start by going to the Google keyword planner entering a general topic into “search for new keywords using a phrase, website or category.” Then I click “Get ideas."

That gives me a list of dozens, or hundreds of keyword phrases for that particular niche.  What I look for is the overall volume of traffic within that niche.  I can get a rough idea of the total amount of traffic by looking at the top 5-10, so I click the text at the top that says “Global Monthly Search Volume” to sort by traffic.

I used the phrase “Blogging”.  These were the results:

1. Blog sites 22,000
2. free blog  12,100
3. free blog sites 12,100
4. what is a blog 18,100
5. blog websites 9,900

As you can see, there are over 22,000 searches for the first phrase alone each month.  This tells me that this is probably a niche worth pursuing, especially since I can later find that there are thousands of affiliate products available.

Another way to gauge profitability is to look at the column that says “Competition” (You’ll see that once you download the keyword file.)  

 Next you want to find out how much competition there is.  You can do that by taking several of the higher-traffic keyword phrases and entering them directly into the Google search.

This shows that about 7,050,000 ,000 pages in the Google index are using the exact phrase “Blogging” on their site.  This number can fluctuate as Google updates its databases, but it’s generally pretty accurate.

Ideally, you want to look for phrases that have at least 1,000 searches per month and fewer than 100,000 competing pages.  This gives you the best chance to rank well for those phrases.

You can also target the extremely competitive phrases.  As your site ages, and gathers backlinks (links from pages within your site and links from other sites), it may very well rank for the more competitive phrases.

But you should concentrate mostly on the less competitive phrases in the beginning.  What you want is to make the most possible money for the time spent, and using the less popular keyword phrases is the best way to accomplish this.

You’ll want to start your blog with about ten articles, and then you should post at least three times a week. When you start promoting your blog, you don’t want it to look like a ghost town with only one post. 

 That means you should find at LEAST 62 keyword phrases to start with.  That would be for your first 10 postings to start with and then one for each month for the next year.  That’s one per week for a year (52 weeks), plus your initial 10.

The reason you want to gather them all up front is because you will probably want to go ahead and write a few month’s worth of blog posts and set them to automatically post on a regular basis. This way the blog runs on complete autopilot for a number of months, updating regularly whether you are around or not.

One of the main reasons I like running niche blogs so much, is the fact, that it’s passive income.  Once the blogs are created and set to update blog posts, you don’t have to touch them anymore that year unless you want to change the affiliate programs I’m using or make minor changes to ad placements and answering comments.

 Once you do your initial research, find your niche, and gather keywords for blog post and your blog title, I encourage you to start writing at least 10 blog post before reading part two Setting up a Blogspot Blog. 

Thanks for reading Blogger Blogging Part 1

9 Idea’s To Consider when Starting an Internet Marketing Business

By // No comments:

Who said Internet marketing was easy? 

It’s not. Setting up your own online business then marketing it is just as hard if not harder than a brick and mortar business. It can be painstakingly tedious and exceedingly difficult. For those that don’t have a business plan and a marketing strategy in place before starting online it can be almost impossible.

That’s why I decided to write these 9 idea's of marketing success, to help you get a grasp of what it takes be a successful online-penuer.

1. Business Model: Internet marketing is chocked full of choices, and your first choice is deciding on which business model you are going to follow. If you don’t make this choice carefully, you’ll find yourself hopping from business model to business model, spending money on programs and “secrets,” and not making any profits at all. Trust me when I say that finding a business model that appeals to you and working with that model will go a long way toward helping you succeed online.

2. Choosing A Domain Name: Your Internet marketing business is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Whether you’re creating a flagship blog for your business or registering a domain for your niche site, you need to take some time to find the right domain name for you. Consider having a domain name with your business + keyword.

3. Choosing A Web Host: Without a web host it’s virtually impossible to make money online without your own dot com. it’s important to give web host provider a lot of thought because once you start building the cost can be astronomically high to move it to another web hosting company. Although you can certainly build up a lot of secondary sites using third party websites like Squidoo or Hubpages, at the end of the day you need to own your content. It just makes sense to have your own website. And you can’t have your own website until you choose a good web hosting service.

4. Website Brand: Before launching your new blog or website you need to think of your brand. What colors are you using right now in your offline business? If you don’t have a business in the real world then you need develop a particular color scheme and not only use it for your website but all of your online marketing messages and social networking.  By utilizing your particular color scheme will strongly associated you in the minds of your potential customers.

5. Content Delivery System: Whether you use content management software such as WordPress or static html pages, you need to create content that is accessible to readers, of all types, including blind, color blind and the deaf. You must consider every type of user when creating content. Many readers will be turned away by small fonts that is hard to read or unusual backgrounds that make text difficult to read. If you choose to include the fancy websites and html emails, at least offer an option for people who would prefer a simple text version instead or an audio or closed captioned video.

6. List management: In the world of Internet marketing, building a list is absolutely essential. Most site owners don’t have the expertise or the time to set up a list management system on their own server. Instead, most use a list provider. A list provider will allow you to collect e-mail addresses from buyers and visitors to your websites. List management is an essential part of any Internet marketing business. Capturing a person’s name and e-mail address when they visit your site allows you to send them helpful information, build your relationship with them and offer new products. It’s absolutely essential that your list provider be easy to use and have the capabilities to deliver professional messages.

7. Social Networking: Use social networking to your advantage. Creating brand specific content on social media sites can generate many more readers than you might expect. Readers equal extra traffic to your website. Simply asking your friends or followers to share your page, can cause a website to go from a little known to a having huge audience, in a matter of days. Plus Google uses social signals to help rank your site.

8. Goal Setting: Set a goal for your website. If you’re just starting out, goal setting will help you evaluate your progress. Goals can be sticking to a content calendar delivering content 2 to 7 days week. You can also set goals for traffic back to your site. If you’re getting zero people hitting your site right now you can set a goal to get 100 people landing on your site by the end of the week. By goal setting you will begin to get new business and begin to prosper.

9. The Future: Considering every one of the tips is just getting you started. Now consider this…The future of the web isn’t search engines but your own network. Anything that you set up that gets clicks back to your site is your network. Whether it is special content such as articles, blog posts, social content, free ebooks, audios or videos, etc. you need to build a gathering place such as a blog, ezine, forum or even a FaceBook Group.

If anything, these tips should help you to narrow down what you need to consider as far as starting your online Internet Marketing business. It's not going to be a cake walk but nothing worth doing ever easy. Apply these tips correctly and focus on what you need to do and your business will begin to grow and profit.

True Email Marketing Lies Gurus Likes to Tell

By // No comments:

There's so much information on the Internet that teaches you how to sell your digital products, how to backend sales and follow up with your customers. This post of email marketing tips is no different, except you’re going to discover 4 lies email marketing gurus like to tell. 

I have been on several email lists for years. Few have fantastic subject lines, gives out great information, but many have lied to you! They aren’t telling you the real story. How do they do this? They leave out important information and never tell you about it.

Okay that was a freebie. Here are the true lies guru’s like to tell about email marketing.

Lie #1: The Follow up. There are a lot of new email marketers that don’t know they can move prospect to a different list which is called “the customer list.”
Here’s the scoop; when a prospect purchases a product from you that you have on your general list, you need to move them from that list over to a customer list. The reason for this is- they may purchase more from you. Think about this for a moment…

They trusted you enough to purchase you’re product. If they like the product well enough they will purchase more. Moving them over your customer list, you can follow up with emails asking them how like your product, what would they change if they could and so forth. Then you can pitch them with more relevant offers that you create.

There are two ways to move a customer. Either you do it manually inside of your autoresponder system or the new customer does it for you. Let’s focus on how to get the customer to do it for you:
When a customer purchases your product they are taken to a pay processor like paypal where they actually make the purchase. Then they need to click a button that says return to merchant. Here you can redirect them to a page that has a new list form on it. This will look much like a squeeze page with simple instructions. “Enter your name and email address in the form below and you will receive future updates to this product.” At this point there is nothing for them to do but subscribe to your customer list. They haven’t received your product yet and let me tell you, they want what they just paid for so they are going to do whatever you ask them to do at this point.

So what makes this a lie? Ben Settle has never taught this to his general list. He probably does if you subscribe to his psychical email newsletter “email Players club,” which cost $97.00 a month. Listen when a guru doesn’t at least mention a good tip like this it’s the same as lying.

Lie #2: Double Opt In. For the last couple of years list owners have been trying to make the process of getting on their list as simple as possible. Email marketing guru’s have always taught that you need to have a list subscriber double opt in which means after subscribing they need to go into their email client, find your email and click a link inside the email that shows they really want it. This isn’t a lie but what you don’t know is most don’t do it. For instance I recently registered with a well respected Internet marketer’s new list and it was a single opt in list. This Internet marker has created over 5 email marketing products since 2000 and in all of them he taught and instilled in his readers minds that double opt in is the only way to run an email marketing business.

Lie#3: The Money is in the list. Here is another lie guru’s like to tell, the money isn’t in the list at all. It’s in the relationship you build with your list. In order to form a relationship with a list you need to things:
1.      Quality Content + interaction with subscribers i.e. ask questions, take surveys, contests, etc. and
2.      Get as many of the right people onto your list, while keeping as many of the wrong people off your list as possible.

Lie #4: Size Matters. Okay, stop giggling class is in session, darn it! The last lie I hear email marketing gurus tell is that you need a huge list. Some even mention I won’t joint venture with anyone with a list smaller than 50,000. I have lists that have had less than 300 subscribers and won big affiliate contests and whoop the snot out of some of the top guru’s in that niche with smaller lists. How? Because some of these gurus send offer after offer to their subscribers and never really form a relationship. Think quality over quantity.
