Google And WordPress Blogging

Dear reader,

Above all other attributes to have in order to be a successful blogger, first you must have a passion for what you do. Once you have mastered that, you will never have to sales pitch anything again…ever. Your passion will result in better engagement with your audience, but more importantly your content will be helpful and informative. Blogging must only be used to share and inspire, not so much the sales.

Every successful blogger is constantly reviewing and testing different methods and tactics, this is time consuming. They do this in order to establish what actually works, so they can share with their readers. Which is why you must have a passion for what you do, because them time is no longer a factor.

A serious blogger always have resourceful fresh ideas based on their own trial and error, because your blog must be captivating and resourceful. Strive for getting both regular and new visitors because this way you will increase your blog visitor/view ration. You want your views to be more than your visitors, because that means returning visitors. Your blog must be unique and appealing, only then will this ration increase.

Successful bloggers will always be testing and researching new traffic driving ideas, methods and tactics to get the best targeted exposure. Most serious bloggers make use of methods like writing articles, eBooks and publishing their own websites. Content will direct your visitor to your blog and even web form, then to your website and eventually ending up on your sales page. Successful bloggers will research the page rank of a particular site before commenting or posting any content, including online publishers.

A serious blogger refuses to give up and regardless the conversion they just keep going, researching and posting. A serious blogger, most of the time also have some great writing skill which they learned over a long period of time. A successful blogger actually doesn’t know how to give up, and neither does a successful affiliate marketer. They are also not in a hurry, and realise the importance of time sacrifice.

If you possess these qualities, then you may be ready to start your own blog and comfortably surprise your audience. Be moderate, be precise but above all you must be professional. Never turn your blog into a tsunami of sales frenzy posts, and refrain from sharing raw affiliate links. You must only share links to your own website and email list landing pages and web forms.

The most important keys to having a responsive blog audience is interesting useful content, moderation, timing, and relevant audience. Be precise, and be objective when you set realistic goals.

Less Visitors will result in More Sales

Targeted Visitors Is More Sales

Dear Reader,

That is also a great way to establish your professional level because that only means that your audiences are targeted, and interested in your content. Yes, when your visitors are properly targeted then you will have a lot less visitors but a lot more sales especially when your content is interesting and helpful. Your content also plays a huge role because that is how you convince your visitors that which they are looking for is right there on your website they are visiting. Basically this tactic needs two crucial elements in place, Targeting and Content.

What is Targeting?

Targeting means keyword and keyword phrase research to establish what people are searching for on the internet that is targeted to your niche. Best part is that Google already provide you with the free tools to determine just that. It’s called Google Trends and can be accessed by simply typing the search phrase “Google Trends” into your browser and then follow the first link you see on the search page. Search for the most sought after keywords and keyword phrases so you can create content and build websites based on those search results. This tactic also works well when applied to your blog because it’s the exact same basics as a website.

How do you Create Interesting and Useful content?

Besides from basing your content like articles, posts, eBooks and many other mediums on your keyword research results, you should also have a solution to the problem you wish to address. This is all part of the basic content creation steps which are; addressing a need, offering a solution and inspiring a desire. Those are the steps to generating a sale on the internet.

In order to have a solution that actually works you have to personally test a product, system, method or tactic which also result in the needed product knowledge. You want to include a “Contact Me” page on your website where your visitors can contact you for help on the product they have just purchased, so you want to have sufficient product knowledge. Soon your audience will be leaving comments on your blogs and websites which will boost your exposure immensely.

With your content useful your audience are more likely to share your content to their friends, followers and even family. And they are sharing your content to people who need that exact system, method, tactic or concept which you offer.

This is how to drive Buyer Traffic, and the hardest part of perfecting this tactic is to sacrifice sufficient time because it’s an analytic game that requires constant research and testing.

Website ideas for Beginners

Secret Website Design Tactics

Dear Reader,

First you will need a trusted website hosting platform like Go Daddy because not only are they proven and trusted, they also offer the most affordable options to getting your own website and domain out there.  For that you just have to visit GoDaddy(.)com to get a domain with a website and an outlook email address for that specific website for a full year. Not going to discuss price, that’s not the purpose of my article but you will be blown away. But don’t go select your domain and start on your website just yet, there are several finer detail you need to attend to starting with your domain name.

Selecting Your Domain Name

It is important to use the keywords you wish to rank for in Google right there in your domain name. If you’re not sure then use the Google Trends tool to search for trending keywords and keyword phrases. When your keyword and/or keyword phrases are present in your domain name then visitors will be more likely to land on your website when they search your niche. For this demonstration, let’s use an Internet Marketing Sub-Niche like Affiliate Marketing. A good domain will then be to the liking of “theaffiliatemarketer(.)com” or even “marketingaffiliateincome(.)com”. Try having at least one of your keywords in your domain name.

Selecting Your Website Title

Inside your website builder, be sure to load an appropriate tile for your website. Much like your domain selection, you must also try and target as many keyword or keyword phrases as you can. Keywords and keyword phrases are the core of any website’s success, when you get the keywords wrong is when you have thousands of visitors with zero sales because they’re not interested in your offer. Same goes for your Home Page content where your keywords and/or keyword phrases should appear no less than 28 times on your Home Page within the content.

Loading General Graphics

You always want to load images as large as you can from inside your website builder, this way you will have much better resolution when you crop or shrink the images. Don’t overdo with images and/or banners because it slows down your website’s load time. Remember that your website must open within six seconds or less. Focus more on offering useful content that kind of funnels into a sale, rather than trying directly with a flood of sales pitches.

Where to find Affiliate Marketing Training Programs

Affiliate Marketing Secrets

Dear Reader,

There are several sites where you can find affiliate training programs by simply searching Google, but not all that glitters is gold. You may very well just end up testing another pipe dream with little to no results at all. Affiliate marketing is not rocket science, but it is a science that favors precision and preparation. By joining different affiliate marketing training platforms, systems and/or programs will always hold some kind of benefit.

Google will always be the best place to search for affiliate marketing training programs, but you need to use the tools Google gives you like page rank checker. You want to ensure that the particular website or program you choose are at least indexed in Google. If it’s not yet indexed, that may point out the fact that the particular program may perhaps not deliver the preferred result.

Nothing you do online is in vain because in the end all your efforts will add up into reaching success and actual sales online. The flip-side to that coin is that there is no final destination to affiliate marketing programs, because there are no single program or system that will result in success. It is a combination of methods, systems, programs and tactics that will be responsible for your success.

It is important to access an affiliate marketing training program that has been tested and proven successful with success stories and review comments to prove it. Equally important is the fact that you should ensure that the seller or owner of the product and/or training program offer you a full refund guarantee in the event of you having to pay for access. If they do not then that may mean that they don’t have much faith in their own training program, and neither should you.

You also need to ensure that the program and/or site offers 24/7 proven support in case you get stuck and need help to proceed. When you get started in affiliate marketing you will need all the help you can find because actually generating sales may turn out to be a lot easier said than done.

You also want to concentrate on a single product, program or system at a time. Trying out several systems, programs or products at the same time will soon have you lost in an ocean of information overload, and this is where the majority of newbies simply give up. Invest the time and effort equal to the desired level of success, and you will accomplish your goals online.

Be Prosperous,

Why Affiliate Marketing is an Art and Not a Contest

The Art Of Affiliate Marketing

Dear Reader,

The one thing that separates a struggling Affiliate Marketer from a Super Successful Affiliate Marketer, is the size of their email lists. Successful Affiliate Marketers know that you only generate revenue by means of your email list and your own website and blog. The basic structure involves indexing your own website and blog, starting your own email list and researching the products you wish to promote.

The proven order in which these must be assembled, after establishing your profitable niche will begin with product research. Knowing your product is the only thing that will ensure your success because knowledge is power. You must have sufficient product knowledge in order to create your own original content. Without that crucial element, creating your own website and blog may turn out to be a complete waste of time. Don’t rush because you must take your time by purchasing and using the product you wish to promote. This is time consuming because you will have to engage with support, and test the product to its full potential.

Next in the sequence will be your own email list which may prove to be quite challenging, because the real work lies in nurturing your list. Therefore your content creation knowledge and skill are the only two tools you have to gain and inspire your subscribers. Sending out Newsletters and Auto-Responder messages, and also knowing when and how to schedule the mail. Another reason for having your own email list with auto-responder, is the fact that you will need a web form to put on your website. Indexing your website and blog will be your next step.

A little keyword knowledge goes a long way with creating your own websites and blogs, and will ultimately determine your quality of traffic. The keywords you wish to rank for must be in your domain, and also the website name or logo. The keywords you wish to rank for must populate your home page and appear no less than 28 times. This way the Google Spider will be more likely to recognize your website, which will boost your page rank and ultimately your visitors and sales. Your website is where you promote your affiliate offers, but your home page must be more tutorial orientated. Rather include a page like “Tools I Use”, and share the tools you use because you have sufficient product knowledge.

Now you have to setup your autopilot traffic machine, and most tools that can help you achieve this are free tools. Tools that sites like Google, Facebook and Word-Press are already providing you with. Tools that are right in front of you but we all fall victim to that chase for the next shiny object. Scheduling the auto posting to your blogs, Facebook pages and Profiles with no exception to your Google+ and Google+ pages. Scheduled posting should primarily focus on directing traffic to your blog, website and landing pages, gaining a subscriber is more important than just a sale.

Learn more about these simple tactics and methods on the website, also how and why to check page rank before you post or comment on a site. Most sites aren’t even indexed in Google yet, which will kind of defeat the purpose of posting and/or commenting. Just a thought…

Be Prosperous,

The Keyword the Product and Exposure?

Google Keyword Indexing

Valued Reader,

If you’re still struggling to generate a passive income online, then you need to review and focus your internet methods. If you do not have your own domain, website or blog and email list, then you may have started your journey with the less successful methods. And not having those in place is why you are failing to leverage keyword search tactics to your advantage. You have to establish which keywords best describe your niche, and how many times they are searched for each month. Based on that, and only that will you be able to choose a domain name and website title that will rank in Google.

There’s also your anchor text or also known as keyword phrases, which must populate the content on your home page. Your home page is purely content, try not to promote and attempt a sales pitch. Rather include a page like “Tools I Use” and then describe and do just that, offer the tools you use. This is where product knowledge plays a huge role, which is why it is important to purchase and personally test what it is you wish to promote. Proper keyword research and product knowledge should be your starting point, not frantically posting on social media.

There are free keyword research tools Google already give you to work with, all you must do is study the site and learn how to use it to your advantage. Remember, the best teacher you could possibly ask for is yourself and a willingness to learn will serve you well. All successful affiliate marketers all made the same mistakes many newbies make to this day, to rush in an attempt to make money faster. Get the island holidays with yachts and sport cars out of your equation for success, and replace it with reality. You start with niche and keyword research, product research and knowledge then off to your first website.

With Affiliate Marketing you have but two places where your sales will come from and that is your website and email list. From your website you offer useful information and interesting content, which must inspire your visitor to buy. First you have to prove to your visitor that you are professional, because people are cautious to just purchase online which is what you aim at doing on your home page. This is also where you include your web form to your email list and in doing so your content accomplishes two crucial achievements. Generating sales, and collecting subscribers which will ultimately result in more sales if they haven’t already purchased from your website.

That is how all the successful affiliate marketers earn those life changing kind of commissions you see in the impressive screenshots. They do not generate that kind of money by posting a tsunami of raw affiliate links in a desperate attempt to generate a sale.

Making money online is not rocket science, but it is a science that favors precision and preparation carefully assembled by adding accurate timing.
