Link Building Basics

 

For a long time now search engines have been using links as votes, which represent the web’s opinion on what pages users find relevant and useful based on popularity. After years of programming development, the search engines have mastered and refined the use of link data, where complex algorithms are put in place to create nuance evaluation of websites based on this information.

Links are not the entirety of SEO, but most search experts agree that huge portions of search engine algorithms are designed around link-based factors. By using links, the engines can determine a site’s popularity in a specific niche based on the number of pages linked to it and when this information is combined with other metrics like trust and authority, the search engines assign a rank for the website.

Trustworthy sites usually link to other trusted sites while spammy sites get the fewest links from trusted sites and links are a great way to establish the validity of documents on any given subject.

What is Link building?

Link building refers to the process of getting external pages on the internet to link to your own website. The more important and popular a website is, the more the links from that website matter. A popular site such as Wikipedia has thousands of different websites linking to it which means it’s probably an important and popular site. In order for you to earn popularity and trust with the search engines, you need assistance from other link partners. The more important the site, the better.

The Basics

Link building is one of the most challenging parts of SEO but also the most important to success. In order to succeed in link building you will need a decent budget, hustle, and more importantly, creativity. Each link building campaign is unique and the way you choose to build your own links will depend largely on your website as well as your personality. Your strategy should fall under one/or more of these types of link acquisition:

• Natural or Editorial Links: These are a type of links which websites and pages give naturally in order to link to your own content. Natural links don’t require any specific action from SEO, apart from the existence of quality content and the ability to raise awareness about it.

• Outreach or Manual Link Building: Outreach links are created through personal effort by contacting bloggers for links, spending money for listings and submitting websites to popular directories.

• Self-Created Links: Many websites encourage visitors to create links through blog comments, guestbook signings, user profiles and forum signatures. While these links only offer small value in the long run, they still have an impact on a number of websites. But generally, search engines tend to devalue these types of links and they’ve been known to penalize websites that use these links aggressively

Building Your Affiliate ARMY to Grow Your Profits

The average Internet Marketer does not approach the product “launch process” properly. They spend time creating an awesome product only to fall short of reaching their income goal. They just don’t get the affiliate support they need to hit their sales goal.

 

Why do you think that so many fail when it comes to building their affiliate army? Why do you think that so many internet marketers believe that “if they build it, they will come?” The reality is, that if you build an amazing product your sales are not just going to appear.

 

There are Internet Marketers that think that by posting on a product on a particular selling platform that they are going to make tons of money by default. For example, posting their product offer on a forum. Many people solely rely on “organic platform traffic.” The reality is this, if you were to go to the Warrior Forum and you were to post an offer today, and do ZERO traffic driving, and use no kind of affiliate network just depending on organic traffic in the forum… your “launch” would likely be a complete failure.

 

Building an affiliate army is crucial to your launch’s success. You have to set aside time for this and you have to follow a plan if you want to get powerful affiliates on board to promote your launch. Remember, that when you’re recruiting for your army that the super affiliates are business people. Before you try recruiting them, you need to make sure that you’ve got all your ducks in a row. You should get to know them first because a stranger may perceive your launch as “risky.” This is their business and they have to make sure that their income continues to come in. If they don’t know you, they just have to “TRUST” that your offer will convert well and that you will treat their customers properly.

 

There are two super affiliates that recently covered this in great detail. These 2 guys are always at the top of the leaderboard for huge launches and they opened my eyes to quite a few important Affiliate Recruitment Tactics. Omar Martin & Dave Nicholson know EXACTLY what to do and have generated millions of dollars online. Together they created an awesome product on how to recruit affiliates and create buzz for your launch. The product is called WP-Affiliate Builder and you can check it out here!

 

When you get inside of the WP-Affiliate Builder members area you’ll find an ebook with 7 chapters of tactics that will help you grow your army, there’s also an audio version so you can download it and listen to it on the go. The site also has JV video training that teaches you the exact steps that Omar Martin & Dave Nicholson themselves use to teach their affiliates how to make money by promoting your products. They include a JV blog development training section that will teach you how to create the JV pages that your affiliates need in order to be armed to promote your product PROPERLY.
These videos are not only going to teach you what you need to know, but it’s going to provide you with the resources to do it well. WP-Affiliate Builder is more than just training, it provides you with Word Press plugins that help automate a huge part of your product launches.

 

The site is absolutely amazing. You definitely don’t want to miss out on what these guys have going on. You should definitely go right now to get access to their site. You won’t be disappointed. I hope to see you there.

 

 

Finding The Right Traffic “Carrier”

 

The last time we were talking about finding & getting Viral traffic. So let’s continue with how to kick start your viral marketing campaign you will need to find a suitable ‘carrier’ for your ‘viruses’.

 

By having the right carrier, you will be able to launch your campaign as swiftly as possible because it will take a while before the viral effect starts to kick in.

 

A suitable carrier would be an E-product that will easily fall into the hands of many readers automatically and it must have a targeted audience (related to that particular niche) who will find your ad useful.

 

However, you must choose the right kind of carrier. This carrier must either have a lot of credibility or an attraction factor that will appeal to the target audience or the resellers (other carriers).

 

An example of an effective carrier is that the E-product must have an appealing E-cover that will capture the attention of your prospects.

 

You must give them a reason to do the viral marketing work for you without you doing it yourself. The key is to set it up correctly the first time (choosing the best product to place your ad, writing a compelling advertisement and choosing the best placements).

 

Then, when your campaign launches, you won’t need to do anything more other than watch the traffic flow in!

 
Find A High Traffic Blog

 

How does one maximize from a high traffic blog when that blog doesn’t belong to you or when your own blog has little traffic to begin with? How does one cope when he is new to Internet marketing?

 

Well, one of the fastest ways to get started out is to search for blogs that are constantly looking for content from contributors like the blog on the previous page.

 

Contribute Relevant Content

 

If you want to divert traffic from blogs  what you do is to contribute your own blog posts as a contributor.

 

Talk about topics that are relevant to their blog as well as your own. This is a good way to capture the reader’s attention.

 

You will reap the following benefits:

 

You get to tap into their traffic and drive traffic to your website

You get to build your credibility online because you get to leverage on their ‘authority’

The blog post remains there for a certain period of time ensuring that you will get maximum exposure

 
As mentioned above regarding credibility, there is one section that you must take note of because it is really valuable. Beneath every article that you contribute, there is a section called the author’s bio. This bio books allows you to ‘sell’ yourself and brand yourself as an expert in whatever niche that you are in. Use this bio box wisely and you can be sure to drive tons of traffic to your website by including a link to your blog or website!

 

Getting Traffic To Your Sites

Ever thought about starting a business only to abandon the idea because of a lack of finances? Well, your penny-saving days have come to an end thanks to the Internet’s way of getting customers!

 

There are about 5 essential techniques that you can use to greatly boost your website’s traffic without spending your life savings on expensive ‘traffic generation’ software or even paid traffic! You will not need to invest your life savings in Google AdWords or pay through your nose for private advertising space on high traffic blogs.

 

These techniques are so powerful that it will help you create so much traffic; you will think you are in Internet marketing heaven!

 

So why do these techniques work? Here’s the reason why:

Your ‘agents’ of delivery are willing to promote YOU for free!

You are sitting on fertile soil (high traffic websites)

The owners of those websites have got something of value from you (and you will be giving it with minimal effort)

You are relying on the massive duplicating power that the Internet has to offer!

 

I am not saying that all paid traffic is bad. Both free and paid traffic has its place in the grand scheme of things, but it is always better to start off with free traffic and monetize it FIRST.

 

And once you’ve mastered the art of monetizing free traffic, you can incorporate paid traffic.

 

The key is for anyone who is just starting out to ‘plant their seeds’ all over the Internet’s soil. You can pick and choose which of your ‘plants’ grow faster and bear fruit and spend more time nurturing it.

 

It sure beats setting up a shop downtown, sitting there all day waiting for customers to arrive. So let’s tap into the power of the fastest and most inexpensive business in the world right now!

 

Why Viral Marketing Is Extremely Powerful?

Ever had Chicken Pox? It all starts from one member of the family getting infected by a friend or a relative. He brings the virus home and pretty soon the entire family gets hit by chicken pox, but not before the ‘carrier’ passes it to another friend’s family!

 

This is what viral marketing is like – when you have the necessary tools to drive traffic to your website, your profits will be unstoppable!

 

Here are a few key components you will need to accomplish this feat:

Advertisements placed in strategic locations (e.g. at the back of viral E-books)

E-products with resell rights (any form that allows the product to be easily passed to another – master resell rights, unrestricted PLR rights, rebranding rights or giveaway rights)

A viral software to refer your friends (e.g. Viral Friend Generator)

 

I will continue this next time so that you have time to let this sink in & let your ideas start to form.

 

 

Staying Motivated

A positive attitude and a lot of passion are absolutely necessary to running a successful business over the long term. Your passion and dream will be your motivation during this process. However, the daily ups and downs of running a business, along with the occasional misstep, will often diminish your motivation. This can have severe consequences. Without proper and long lasting motivation the odds of your business surviving for years to come will be reduced. The good news is that there are plenty of things you can do to help maintain your own motivation and to help motivate your staff.

Positive Thoughts

Again, so much of running your own business comes down to positive thoughts. Staying positive and changing how you think about life can help ensure that you stay motivated during difficult times.

Seek out support

Being an entrepreneur is difficult work. Sometimes it can help to reach out to others, especially if they are also entrepreneurs. Seeking out support from other people who are facing similar challenges can help you retain your motivation and find new innovative ways to solve your problems. Support from others can also help you have a little fun and remember why you wanted to be an entrepreneur in the first place.

Believe in your ability to accomplish your dreams

However you go about achieving this, it is important to replenish your belief in yourself on a regular basis. Some people accomplish this by creating a motivation wall, while others have regular meetings with a mentor or life coach. Even just taking a few minutes each day to tell yourself that you have what it takes to succeed can motivate you to keep going.

Get away from work for a while

Every mind needs a little rest. It is important to get away from your business and your entrepreneurial mindset every now and then, simply to allow your brain to rest and recuperate. This is a great time to engage in a hobby and get some exercise. Exercise is vital to a healthy mind and by taking some time to relax and refresh you will find that you are able to return to work with more motivation.

Learning How to Manage Your Time

Properly managing your time will help you not only to be more productive, it will also help ensure that you remain motivated. Every successful entrepreneur has good time management skills.

Forget ‘clock time’

Traditional time management wisdom is designed to help you manage your ‘clock time’, or actual minutes on the clock. This is not really how you spend your day however. You may want to consider forgetting about ‘clock time’ and focus on real time. Real time is how much of your day you spend on each activity, both in work and at home. Real time is relative.

Choose how much time you want to spend on specific things

Since real time is relevant, you have the power to choose how much of your time you spend on specific activities. As a business owner you may not be able to stop interruptions and problems, but you can choose how much time you want to spend dealing with them. Decide how much time you want to spend thinking about things, conversing about things and acting on things, then match your available time appropriately.

Working When You Are Most Productive

Part of learning how to better manage your time means learning to organize your efforts so that you are working when you are likely to be the most productive. This process helps to eliminate wasted time, or when you are working but not being particularly productive.

 

Starting Your Dream Business

Once you have determined that you have the necessary traits, skills and passion to become an entrepreneur, the next step will be to start up your dream business.

Getting Started

Getting started with your dream business may be the easiest part of the process or it may be the hardest. It really depends on your specific situation. Some would-be entrepreneurs are raring to get started, while others are bogged down with doubts and procrastination.

Avoid coming up with excuses why you shouldn’t start your own business.

Once you have made the important decision that yes you want to become an entrepreneur, skip the excuses and start the process.

Avoid the quicksand that is known as procrastination.

Putting off the process of starting your business for any reason can lead to getting stuck in the mud. Avoid the process of procrastination at all costs.

Do whatever it takes to motivate yourself to get started.

Doubt, fear, worry and a lack of purpose can all end up preventing you from getting your dreams going. Focus on why you want to become an entrepreneur (your passion) and use that to motivate yourself into taking those first few steps. The first couple of steps are the most important ones.

Develop core beliefs.

Now is the time to develop your business’s core beliefs. This will help you to create the right kind of company, one that matches your passion and motivates you to always move forward. Your business’s core beliefs will be a major building block of it, so make sure that these beliefs are worthy. They will also determine how you proceed to make decisions in the future and which direction the business takes your life.

Making the Shift from Employee to Boss

Running your own business takes leadership. For many new entrepreneurs it can be difficult to make the switch from employee to manager or boss. There are ways that you can prepare yourself for this transition. For people who have built-in leadership skills this transition may be easier, but anyone with the proper drive and motivation can develop leadership skills.

 

The Importance of Passion

 

Passion represents one of the most important aspects of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Without passion your business will turn out to be just another job.

Always choose something you are passionate about!

Without passion, and a lot of it, your business dreams will become lost in the day to day grind of running a business. Take a look at the top ten most successful entrepreneurs and you will see that their passion is the number one driving force behind their success. There is no way to escape this fact you simply must be passionate in order to achieve your goals!

Starting with a Dream

The best way to start a business is to take what you are passionate about and find a way to turn that into a business. You need to start with a dream.  If you don’t have passion for your work then you won’t have the motivation and energy to keep pushing through obstacles, you won’t be willing to take the necessary risks required to succeed and you won’t be able to sell your dream to others.

Start with your dreams and grow your business from there.

The unfortunate reality is that once a business reaches the beginning of its third year its chances of surviving drops dramatically. Only about 44% of businesses live to see their fourth year. Without the passion you derive from living your dream you won’t have what it takes to survive year after year. This means that you should start your business from the ground up using your dream as a foundation.  Whatever your dream in life may be, you need to find a way to turn that dream into a business. If the foundation of your business is based on something that you are truly passionate about, then it will be much easier to grow that dream into a hugely successful business.

What does it take to become an entrepreneur?

There are plenty of benefits of being an entrepreneur, but it is certainly no easy task to start your own business. Successful entrepreneurs, that is to say those who are able to accomplish their goals, earn a successful living through their business and enjoy the many benefits of entrepreneurship, all have specific traits. If you are considering taking the leap and following your entrepreneurship dreams then you will want to understand what these traits are so that you can instill the same traits in yourself. This will help ensure that you are able to achieve your dreams.

Successful Entrepreneurs:
• Have passion and a lot of it
• Are tenacious
• Able to manage their fear of the unknown
• Have a grand vision
• Believe in themselves
• Are extremely flexible
• Are able to defy conventional wisdom
• Are willing to take risks in life

If you have these traits, or if you can teach yourself how to develop these traits within yourself, then your likelihood of becoming a successful entrepreneur will increase. In addition to these personality traits, all successful entrepreneurs possess a certain amount of skills.

Top Tips to Help You Run a Successful Fan Page

 

There are Facebook pages and there are “Facebook Pages.” Some pages are just there. They exist, they are boring and they do nothing to draw in their audience. Other pages have the ‘wow’ factor. They are attractive, they offer great value and the audience is drawn in. Which type of Facebook Page do you have? Here are some top-secret tips to help you run a successful fan page that not only brings people to your page, but helps you grow your fans and likes.

Start With an Incredible Cover Photo

The image at the top of your page can draw you in. It can capture your imagination and take you to some place beautiful. Make sure that you understand the importance of your cover photo and that you choose one that will work for you. There are tons of online resources to help you with this.

Create a Profile Image That’s Unique

When it comes to profile pictures, we tend to stick a picture of ourselves up there and that’s that. But there is so much value in using a unique profile image that your audience will remember or associate with. Start with defining what your business about. Then try to create an image that is memorable and creates strong branding. Hire a visual artist if you need to. It’s worth it!

Make Use of the Facebook Page Apps

Facebook offers you some great apps, so make sure to explore them and make use of it. Add any that are appropriate. Don’t be afraid to make use of several. It will help to increase your viewers along with your likes.

Post Regular and Engaging Posts

Creating a post now and then isn’t good enough. You need to have regular posts every day so that you show up in the news feeds and so that your fans look forward to your posts and are ready to read and share those posts. In addition, you need to make sure you have engaging posts so that they encourage your fans to comment and participate in a discussion. This will help to increase your reach.

Strong Call to Action

It is very important that your Facebook page has a strong call to action, because without it your visitors won’t know what they are supposed to do. Ask friends to click the ‘LIKE’ button in a clear and concise way that leaves no room for mistakes.

If you want to grow your fan base and increase your likes, you are going to need to have posts to your page that are interesting and keep your visitors wanting to return. Here are 5 tips to create Facebook posts that are engaging.

* Photos and videos that are media rich will get attention and they will help your message be more noticeable on a News feed.
* Lifestyle and inspirational images are always engaging. Smart Page owners are quick to take advantage of these images, because they understand they do not have to be relevant to the product/service you offer to be relevant to your fans. These fans will then share these posts with their friends and that provides you with more reach and another opportunity to grow your ‘Likes.’

* The best posts are between 100 and 250 characters – short and to the point gets the most attention.

#2 Share and Promote Discounts and Promotions That are Exclusive
* Offer your visitors a really good perk or deal to keep them interested. You can increase your sales and increase your followers with this technique.
* Buy 1 get 1 free seems to be a very popular promotion and so is when you are giving things away for free.
* To increase your visitors’ engagement, make sure that you have a clear call to action.

#3 Suitability and Timeliness
* When your posts are related to what they are thinking about at the time, such as holidays or a current sporting event, your audience is much more likely to engage
* Timeliness in replying to any posts that have a comment on them is also important. The faster you are to replying to your fans the more likely that they will continue to engage you.

#4 Drive Traffic to Your Website With Links
Link posts have an area that’s larger now and it helps people to find your website, thereby increasing your traffic.
Use link posts to drive people to your website
Link posts now have a larger, clickable area that helps drive people to your website. Take the title, image and description, which comes from the URL, and customize it.

Put these 4 tips into play and watch your fans grow.
