How to get more traffic to your site by writing good content

If you are involved in blogging or you are developing your own web site, you may well be looking to earn money off the Internet. You probably have a great idea so you go ahead and write lots of great content. You are convinced this is what people want, so you sit back and wait for the traffic to arrive.

Unless you are really lucky, it is unlikely you will see the flood of traffic that you anticipated. There are a number of reasons for this, the first of which is that content is only the first step in attracting those targeted visitors you are so desperate you need for your success.

Let’s look at some of the factors that will help you to succeed:

Content

As we have mentioned, content is the first step you need to take. Many people write their content for the search engines. By this I mean they look at factors like keyword density, which is the number of times your keyword (s) appear in your article. At one stage this was very important, but the search engines realised that people were exploiting the situation by adopting tactics called “keyword stuffing”. Literally this meant inserting your main keyword phrase in the article a lot of times.

Ideally your article should be informative, in demand and relevant. If you write content that satisfies these conditions, there is a good chance that your readers will stay on your web site and will interactive with you.

What to include in your article:

As many of you are involved in Internet Marketing, the main type of article that attracts a lot of visitors is one that solves a problem.

Theses include:

How do I attract more visitors to my web site?

What’s the easiest way to earn money on the Internet?

How do I get my video seen on YouTube?

If you want to attract a lot of visitors, it is advisable that you are solving an issue for many people. Rather than guess, one of the sites I use is:

www.quora.com

Here you will see the type of issues that people are trying to resolve.

Look at some of the questions and see how many people are watching. If it is a major issue then a lot of people will be following it, so it is worth trying to provide a solution.

For example, I have just seen somebody ask on Quora :

“How do I promote my video on YouTube?”

What you can do here is research this topic and then write an article in reply to the question. If people like your answer they will click on your link back to your web site.

There are various debates as to how long the article should be. The consensus of opinion is that it should be 1,000 to 1,500 words.

Relevant and topical content

It may sound obvious but your content should be topical. You need to watch the trends and try to provide solutions in topical, growing markets. For example, if you are involved in Internet Marketing, you will know that YouTube has been very popular and shows no sign of slowing down. If you can learn about YouTube then you will be involved in a growing market.

Conversely if we look at article directories, these were very popular a few years ago when it was suggested that in order to rank high in the search engines, you needed to submit your content to the major article directories. Most marketers will tell you that article directories do not have the influence that they did a few years ago. Therefore, it may not be a good idea to spend too much time on learning about article directories.

How To Improve Your Knowledge

If we take the example above and you decide to learn more about YouTube you probably want to know how to learn more.

Firstly, one great place is YouTube itself. If you search on:

“How to promote my video on YouTube?” you will find so many different answers, and all the answers are free.

A site that I use is https://www.udemy.com/

You will normally have to pay for these courses, but very often there are promotions available which make the courses very affordable.

I have just searched on the YouTube phrase above and found over 6,300 courses available. Against each offering you can see the ratings, comments as well as the number of people who have taken the course. It is worth looking through the options to find the right one for you. I would suggest going for a course that has attracted a lot of readers and is highly rated.

I like Udemy as the training is video based which is my preferred way of learning. Very often you will be able to preview the first few videos. This is well worth doing as you will quickly see if the style of the supplier is right for you.

Keywords

When I mention keywords many people switch off or find it too complicated.

There is a lot to keywords and Search Engine Optimization and it is not possible to cover it in this article.

If you are involved in Internet Marketing and you have written an article or made a video on how to make money online, the chances of ranking for that key phrase is not very high. Just looking at google there are over 3 billion competitors for this search term.

There are lots of tools available to help you with keyword analysis but the best thing to do is expand the search phrase and use what are known as long tailed keywords. For example if you used:

“How to make money online without investing anything” there are 263 million results. That is still too many but if you continue to drill down you will find a search term that you can use.

You can use a free tool called Google Keyword Planner which will help you further.

Conclusion

There are many other ways to help your blog or web site being found, but the more you have to do, the more complex things become.

Personally, I write an article for my own web site and I normally make a video which I load onto YouTube.

I also post to a number of sites like StumbleUpon, Reddit, LinkedIn as well as Blogger. More information on these can be found on this site.

Good luck with your site.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

 

 

 

 

How to make money online- FREE report

Are you looking for a fast and easy way to make money online? 

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably fed up with the guides that tell you how you can generate instant profits online, only to find it isn’t at all easy.

Thankfully, there really are legitimate ways to make money online that don’t take a lot of time, and in most cases, very little to no upfront investment. And that’s what this special report is all about.

I’m going to save you a lot of time and trial-by-error by focusing on the one instant income opportunity that has not only worked for myself, but countless others and condensed everything into the short report.

Instant Commission Networks

Have you ever heard of instant commission networks? These are marketplaces that will send you payment via PayPal instantly for every product you sell.

It’s one of the most exciting opportunities online and one of the easiest, especially if you have any experience with affiliate marketing, or you already own a blog, website or mailing list.

Regardless, even if you’re a complete beginner, you can still take advantage of these instant cash avenues just by following a few simple steps.

Here’s a quick breakdown of what you’ll need to do:

Create free accounts at the 3 most popular sites.

My advice would be to concentrate on one to start with.

The idea behind them is a very simple one:

 

  • Choose products that you’re interested in promoting.
  • Apply to become an affiliate. Quite often you’ll get accepted in minutes.
  • Set up campaigns to promote the products.
  • Earn money instantly, sent to your PayPal account!

 

Of course, there’s more to each step and that’s what we’ll cover in the FREE guide.
In the report, I’ll show you what kind of products to focus on so you can start making money quickly.

Choosing the right products is key to maximizing your affiliate income.  You not only want to focus on promoting products that are currently in demand, but you want to get on board during the early phase of launches.

Why is this so important?
People love launches. The hype, the buzz that’s generated throughout the process, and the excitement from others who share the products and discuss what they love most about products all fuels the launch.

So, if you get in early, you’ll be able to get the most out of your marketing efforts.  You want to be ready to promote as soon as the product goes live, beating out competing affiliates who are also promoting it.

You’ll always make more money promoting an active, and current launch than you would promoting evergreen products that have been on the market for a long time.

This means you’ll want to pay attention to product launch calendars. These will tell you what upcoming launches are taking place so you can get prepared.  This report is all about making money in 60 minutes or less, so you’ll want to look at products launching today, if possible.

You can find out what launches are happening .

And there’s another reason to stay on top of upcoming launches:

Affiliate contests!
Quite often, vendors will encourage affiliates to jump on board by offering additional incentives to promote their products. This usually includes cash prizes based on an affiliate leaderboard. Those who bring in the most sales will gain access to special bonuses.

Knowing what product launches are taking place will also help you maximize your income by creating bonuses that entice customers to purchase through your link rather than a competitor’s. In the report, I’ll show you how to set one up so you can quickly maximize sales and skyrocket your income.

It should come as no surprise that bonuses are what often separate regular affiliates from super affiliate marketers.  After all, why would a customer purchase a product from you if someone else is offering a free add-on, upgrade or auxiliary component that adds value to their purchase?

People love getting something extra for nothing, so if you want to stand out while being able to build a successful career as a super affiliate, there’s no easier way than by offering bonuses as part of your overall marketing campaign.

Here’s the thing to keep in mind:

Not all bonuses are created equal.

In the report, I will show you where you can find good quality bonuses.

Here’s the good news:  Bonuses don’t have to cost a lot of money or take a lot of time to create. Sure, if you’re a content creator you’ve got the advantage of creating your own bonuses without having to pay a dime.  But if you are not very good at creating products, or just don’t have time to do so, you can still join the leagues of super affiliates who utilize bonuses to double, even triple their income.

Choosing products to promote!

I’ve already mentioned the importance of staying on top of upcoming product launches so you don’t miss out on affiliate contests and other opportunities.  But what if there aren’t any product launches happening today? Or this week? Or even this month? (though very unlikely).

First, make sure you’ve decided on a bonus package because you’re going to want to align the bonus with a product in the same niche market.

It doesn’t make sense to offer a bonus that’s not relevant to the products you intend to promote.

That’s important, so always keep that in mind. Bonuses must align with your promoted products otherwise customers will end up confused, frustrated and well, they just won’t buy from you again.

When considering products you want to promote, you’ll have to research the vendor as thoroughly as possible.

This includes:
Looking over past product launches. How well did their product do? How many sales did they generate? What kind of feedback did they receive?

You will want to take things a step further and check out their social media presence.

Follow them on twitter, friend them on Facebook and join any open groups they’re in.

Do your best to evaluate their past launches and current products before you tie your name to it.

Your brand is your ticket to making money online and you never want to promote products that you haven’t evaluated or vendor’s you haven’t conducted some sort of due diligence on.

When you’ve chosen a couple of products to promote, it’s time to launch a marketing strategy that will get those PayPal payment notifications pouring in!

How you launch a marketing campaign will depend on your available resources.

For example, if you have access to a mailing list, then the easiest way to jumpstart your affiliate marketing is to send out a broadcast to everyone on your list.

Or, if you have a presence on any of the social media sites with an avid following, you could post an update with affiliate links.

But what if you don’t have any of these tools at your disposal? What do you do then?

Give something away and build your lists!

Consider your audience, the type of products you plan to promote, and what people are most likely interested in and then offer a giveaway that appeals to the majority of that market.

While you could spend some time creating social marketing campaigns such as Facebook boosted posts or promotional tweets, if you’re looking to jumpstart your affiliate campaigns quickly, and at very little cost, you’ll want to choose one of the traffic triggers listed in the report.

I hope that this special report helps you get on the path towards ongoing success in affiliate marketing.  The key is to stay consistent.  Look for ways to drive traffic to your squeeze pages, power up your mailing list account with in-demand freebies, useful content and autoresponders that nurture engagement.

Keep tabs on upcoming product launches, keeping in mind that heavy promotions on the first and last day of a launch will typically yield the best results.

Always be on the lookout for ways to spread your squeeze page links around. Share them on every social media platform you can, incorporate them into blog posts, and try to be as active on external sites as you are on your own.

Utilize guest blogging, blog commenting and forum marketing to your advantage. Remember, the more active you are across multiple platforms, the more exposure you’ll receive.

Affiliate marketing is a numbers game. You want to try as many different things as possible until you find what works for you.

Your primary focus should always be on continuing to build your lists. The more segmented, targeted and active your lists are, the more money you’ll make.

How to get traffic to your site using blogger

I have written a number of articles and made some videos on the theme “how to get traffic to your web site”.  

Some people rely on SEO and posting to sites such as Facebook and twitter.

If we take the subject of SEO, it takes a lot of work and skill to get onto the front pages of the search engines. For most people, this is a step too far so we need to look at other ways of driving traffic.

It is well worth posting to Facebook and twitter but there are other sites that we should consider.

One of these is Blogger, which is owned by google.

There are various debates about Blogger v WordPress.

Personally I don’t see it as an either/or as I use both.

If you have taken the time to write an article and possibly make a video the easy bit is to post to a number of different sites.

It doesn’t take much time to post manually to Blogger but if you want to make life easier,there are various bits of software as well as WordPress plugins that will let you post automatically to Blogger.

The benefits of using Blogger are as follows :

1 It is easy to use,but if you need to know how to do something a simple search on Google or YouTube will provide you with the necessary information.

2 It is free

This is a huge benefit if you are on a budget.

3 Free hosting from Google

As well as free hosting, you get 99.999% uptime.

Also, your site will not suffer degradation of performance.

4 You show up in the search engines faster

Blogger sites are added to the Google search engine within 24 hours,which gives you a huge advantage over other sites.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Blogger is well worth using.

I have used both Blogger and WordPress and I like both. However, at times WordPress can be more difficult to use than Blogger.

If you post to Blogger and make a video and post to YouTube, you may have an unfair advantage in the search engines as both of these are owned by Google.

I have made a short video as an introduction to Blogger.

 

Video Marketing – 7 good reasons why

There is no doubt that the use of video in content marketing is on the rise.  One of the largest video sites, YouTube , is now the second largest search engine on the web. One of the reasons is that when people are looking how to do something they prefer to watch a video rather than read text.

Here are 7 reasons why you should be involved in video marketing :

1 Improved rankings in the search engines.

Many of us have believed that it is easier to rank on YouTube rather than on the search engines. However, the surprising result is that, according to ComScore, adding a video to your web site can increase the chance of a front page Google result by 53 times.

2 Video can increase your sales

It is estimated that adding a product video to your landing page can increase your conversions by 80%.

3 Higher Engagement

Whenever we are posting a video or a text post, we are looking for our audience to engage with us. It is believed that viewers are 10 times more likely to embed, share and comment on video content than on text based posts.

4 Videos are more appealing to mobile users

We have all seen the growth of mobile usage over the last few years and it is forecast that this growth will continue.

More than half of video viewing is now done on mobile phones.

It is also forecast that watching videos on mobiles will overtake traditional TV viewing.

Quite simply, people find it easy to watch a video while on the go, than scrolling through trying to read lots of text.

5 Higher Retention Rates

When trying to rank in the search engines, companies like Google consider the amount of time spent on your web site. If people don’t stay on the site long, this is known as a high bounce rate and will not help your search engine rankings.

65%  of viewers watch at least 75% of a video, which is much higher than with text based posts.

6 It Is Easier To Learn From Video

Nowadays,people increasingly use video to learn.

When people want to learn about a new product or service, as many as 98% said they preferred to watch a video.

7 Better Email Click Throughs

Email marketing is still very strong. The use of videos in emails has shown to double the click through rate.

Conclusion

In conclusion,there are very compelling reasons to make use of videos in our marketing campaigns.

Looking to the future,it is forecast that we will be using video more and more,so it is a good time to start now.

Below is an example of a video.

This is with music,but it could also be with voice.

 

How to cloak your affiliate link

If you are promoting an affiliate product, you will be given an affiliate link.
For example,if you are promoting a clickbank product,you may have a link as follows :

http://XXX.clevergiz.hop.clickbank.net?cgpage=keyword-researcher

This is for a product called Keyword Researcher.
You would replace the XXX with your affiliate ID.

However,it doesn’t look very professional,which is why there are a number of URL shorteners available.

2 of the more popular ones are

1 bit.ly

2 Google’s offering called Goo.gl

Again,these are not very professional and don’t relate to your own identity or brand.

My favourite URL shortener ( or link cloaker as it is sometimes known )
is a WordPress plug-in called Pretty Link

It is very easy to use, and to show you how to use it I have made a video below.

If you need any help or have any comments,please do no hesitate to contact me.

 

How to add menus in WordPress

A number of people have asked me how to manage menus in WordPress.
This is relatively easy to do, and in order to show you how to do it,I have made a short video.

Personally,I like the horizontal menu across the top of the screen.
I then like sub-menus so that people can see, at a glance,what is on my site.

Your theme and menu location may be different.
However,you can still use the same method.

If you have any questions,please let me know.

 

How to find keywords using a FREE tool

When we write an article, we use keywords in the hope that the article will be found by people searching on the Internet.

Let’s consider google for now as it is the most popular search engine.
If you are in the weight loss business, you may consider the following keyword phrase :

“How to lose weight ?”
As of February 2018 there are over 14 million searches, so the chances of being found are not that great.
The search engines will be dominated by established businesses and organizations with very large budgets.
Take a look at the first page.

However,there is still hope as we can find keyword phrases with less competition, and therefore more chance of being found.

There are a number of tools on the market that will do this work for you.
However,if you want a free tool, google offer keyword planner.
To see how you can use this,please watch this video below :
