Why Blogging Is 1000 Times More Effective

Assembling Your Internet Empire

Valued Reader,

Blogging is actually a trend that started in the early Nineties, and today it’s one of the most preferred marketing methods among successful affiliate marketers. But a Blog is not a sales page, you must blog to inspire and offer advice that your audience can actually use. Which is why your targeting is so important, when done right your blog can be exactly 1000 times more effective than Any Website. A 1000 times More Effective?

Why is a Blog 1000 Times More Effective than Any Website?

Now the figure 1000 is the Search Engine Default Limit for the amount of posts a blog can have, which is much more than you really need. Your blog will start humming with visitors within your first few posts, providing you are blogging correctly. You must gain the trust of Major Search Engines, and you can only do that with interesting, relevant and useful content. Each blog post must be unique, so stop with the article re-writing already! That’s just my personal opinion, but I know how difficult it can be writing hundreds of keyword rich articles and converting that into blog posts. But guess what…? It’s Worth the Sacrifice and Dedication because you must aim at branding your name and not just a single product. Unique content is how you gain your audience’s trust, which is crucial to any online sales.

With the figure 1000 posts in mind, here’s the actual tactic that makes a blog so much more effective – When you post to your blog, you must have the right S.E.O plugins installed so you can optimize each post individually. You also have to set your settings from within your Word Press cPanel inside the permalinks section to “Post Title”. This will then link your post to the primary blog domain where your post title appear after the .com with a / forward slash and then post title. Now when you are targeting your keywords in your blog post title, then these keywords also show in the post URL. This way, each blog post acts as a little “Mini Site” on its own.

Ultimately, if you have as little as Ten Blog Posts that is ten sites out there attracting visitors to the same blog. All done with a few simple Word Press Setting Changes and the Right Plugins. Word Press is literally a Gold Mine when you know where to look and what to change, which will boost your Google Site Rating exponentially. This particular blog has a Google rating of 71% (Gold) at the time of this post, achieved by using the very tactics I’m blabbering about.

Blabbering…? Yes, to the complete newbie this all can sound like blabber because I know it did to me back when I got started and had no clue. We all go through those days of chasing that magic button that will turn our PCs into overnight ATM machines, right? Which is exactly the time when S.E.O seems like way too time consuming, and definitely way too much work. The Truth of the matter is that it’s actually not all that complicated, the key lies in understanding.

Let me assure you that S.E.O is well worth the effort and sacrifice because there is nothing on the Internet that drives targeted visitors like Search Engine Optimization. In fact most of the tactics, settings and plugins are completely free. You Just Have to Know Where to Look, what to do with them and how to apply the method.

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.

Make your content unique and informative, by showing your readers how to perform certain preferred tasks within your niche.

Your article must be easy to read because successful writing is not about using sophisticated words, but rather simple words in an impressive way. Offer advice because that will get you recognized as a Professional which is quite an advantage. Once you’re recognized as a professional, audiences will be more likely to search for your content and even share it to their audiences.

This tactic will drive much more targeted visitors to your website, because they will visit your website based on your article content. Never share raw affiliate links or even cloaked affiliate links because high page rank directories will ban your articles. You only share links to your own professional websites where you present affiliate offers, and provide a web form to your email list. You may also share links to personal blogs, and it helps when your website URL is posted in every blog post signature.

You must be objective in the use of your keywords and/or keyword phrases. Best to use the Google Trends tool to established the latest search trends. You must then use the keywords from your searches and populate your article accordingly, but don’t overdo it to the point that your article doesn’t make much sense. Maybe two to three of each of the keywords you wish to target could be quite sufficient.

Your article title must be eye-catching and using the “reason why” style of title prove to be quite effective. A good example could be a title to the liking of – 5 Reasons why Blogging is Best – Audiences tend to be more responsive when you add numerical numbers. Your subject line must describe your content precisely.
