The news today is that LGN Revolution a top online marketing company, that makes available one of the lowest entry level and best compensation plans in the industry has purchased another leading online marketing company, EDC Diamond.
LGN Revolution’s advantage over other online marketing companies is that for as little as $200.00 you can have a new state of the art, full functional website with autoresponder, weekly training meetings for new and experienced marketers, and much much more. With LGN Revolutions superb mentoring program and built in residual income stream, it makes the decision process to join LGN Revolution a no brainier.

Complete details of the acquisition have not been revealed at this point according to James Ward CEO of LGN Revolution, he mentioned that details still needed to be worked out to make the change fair and equitable for both companies. In his communication with LGN Revolutions members during a live webinar Tuesday night he mentioned LGN Revolution would be utilizing most of the products from EDC Diamond.

Linda asks…

Internet Website Marketing Ideas?

I own a small internet web maternity clothing shop. www.hautemamacouture.com I get almost no business to it at all. I tried paying for advertising with search engines but I had too small a budget (spent $100 on 4 different engines/month). I also have the same items in a store on eBay. That’s where I make 99% of my money. However, with their recent announcements of fee increases, they should just change their name to FeeBay and their changes to the feedback policy that will not allow a seller to leave negative when warranted, I can no longer afford to do business on there. I spend about $500-$1,000 in eBay fees a month but I make about $4,000 a month. How can I shift some of this around to promote my website. I am on a very limited budget and have no idea how to get people to go to this website and buy. Thanks!

barry0912 answers:

Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it’s easier said than done.

You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you get for FREE!

Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.” http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

http://www.newswiretoday.com/
http://www.free-press-release.com/

5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

6. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article ” How To Sell More on the Web: 30 Tips To Increase Conversion Rates For An Ecommerce Site ” http://www.powerhomebiz.com/092006/ecommerce.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

7. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
Google Base http://base.google.com
Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/…
Text Link Exchange http://www.txtswap.com/

Your Questions About Low Cost Auto Insurance

Carol asks…

What auto insurance offices offer reduced cost auto insurance program in the San Fernando Valley?

Details below if you do not know which one I am referring to?
I’m not talking about the cliche “low cost auto insurance” that is available to everyone. etc…I’m talking about a specific plan offered by the state of California available at some insurance offices for low income individuals. I found one office with it, it isn’t close enough, does anyone know of any more offices ?

“The California Low Cost
Automobile Insurance Program (LCA):
The California Low Cost Automobile Insurance Pilot
Program, created in 1999, established a lowcost
automobile insurance policy for residents of Los Angeles
County and the City and County of San Francisco.
California Law requires that all drivers be insured.
However, too many low-income drivers remain uninsured
because the costs of standard auto insurance premiums
are beyond their financial reach. The program’s purpose
is to provide lowcost automobile liability insurance to
good drivers who demonstrate financial need.

barry0912 answers:

It’s my understanding that the program is only available to those that are certifiably below the poverty level and the liability limits are reduced even lower than what is normally required by the State of California.

I’m a Texas agent but have a lot of friends that are agents or brokers in CA and they tell me that they do not HAVE to sell it and choose NOT to since it IS a low premium product (hence low commission to them) and they cannot charge any broker fee.

Irregardless of how far the agent that you FOUND that WILL write the program, you may be compelled to use them. It’s either that or ask around to someone you know that might have the program – perhaps they can point you in the right direction. You might also contact your Department of Insurance in Sacramento for a list of qualified agents.

Good luck and I hope this helps!

Ken asks…

Where can I get cheap auto insurance?

I am looking for good and low cost auto insurance.

barry0912 answers:

If you search this site you’ll see that this question has been asked before…

Insurers base their quotes on different factors for different people, Try getting a quote online or from a local broker. I am paying less than ½ of what I was paying before.

Carol asks…

your opinion about internet marketing on a free piano lessons free-blog?

im on the way to make a free piano lessons free-blog,can you tell me exacly ideas on how to make money out of this? and how many money i can make per month,

some ideas are:
– affiliate marketing in one tab
– some buyable stuff like e-book
– maybe some skype call lessons
– maybe some advertises(but the money from this it will be extremly low due the small amount of views)
– a system that customers tell me which song they like to learn on piano and i will tell them how to learn it with a small amount of money

any other opinion? will this work? and how many money i will make per month! thanks!

barry0912 answers:

A music blog will not be a huge money maker–especially one giving free lessons.

You can set-up an opt-in form for a free newsletter or eBook like you were thinking then market to your list.

But I would suggest having useful content (blog), images and videos on your site, some Adsense ads, a music related product from Clickbank or another product site and charge a small fee (at least) for your lessons.

Also, determine who your target audience/market will be and market to them. Like teenagers are into music but are they really going to take lessons or visit a site offering lessons? But parents of younger kids may very well be interested in your lessons for their children so they are more apt to visit your site.

Anyway, don’t expect to make a great deal of cash unless you decide to charge for your services. However, having Adsense ads etc. Like I suggested above may just recoup your costs to maintain the site.

Oh, you can contact the company below for a free one-hour consultation. They can help you come up with a detailed internet marketing strategy and implement the strategy as well.

I wish you the best!

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Company

Carol asks…

What is the best analytics best practice for 2010 and beyond?

Hello we are a new start up and we want to be sure we have implemented the best analytics and measurement tools available to us for internet marketing.

We have google analytics and yahoo statistics. We want to get the best experience and at the same time isolate all of our exposure points for improvements.

We want our customer experience to be fun friendly and enticing.

Can you please help us ensure we are successful and aware of every possibility by letting us know which best practices are most important and relevant to todays market and beyond.

barry0912 answers:

Google analytics is the best of the free analytics packages that are provided by an external company. Piwiki is a little better, but you have to run an installation of it yourself.

If you really want to ensure you get the most from your traffic you need a company like Omniture to track your traffic and test various small changes to your site. Check out “Site Catalyst” and “Test and Target”, but they are going to cost you money.

Marketing is key to your service, as with any business. As you’re geared for working on the web and with PC’s, make full use of the internet for marketing. Make sure your site is optimised for the search engines. Become involved in sites/blogs/directories that relate to your target market.

Networking groups are a good way of meeting business people who need help with the things that a Virtual Assistant can do.

Please feel free to contact me for information on other groups in the UK

Good luck!

David asks…

What is the greatest obstacle to finding an internet marketing mentor?

One of the things that the majority of folks most often misunderstand about finding an internet mentor to help them out is they tend to think they have to pay enormous sums of money for a consultant, a coaching program or some other such thing…do you find this to be the case?

barry0912 answers:

There are really two sides to this coin with a variety of hungry vultures hanging out on each.

FREE ADVICE
Ever hear the old adage that you get what you pay for? To a certain extent it’s true. However, you will indeed find many sites that offer free advice. The problem is, unless your a smart Internet Marketer your not going to know the good advice from the bad. What’s worse, since you are needing the advice it’s likely that you have not gained all the wisdom you are looking for yet. This ends up being a vicious circle with no real end.

That’s why SEO & Beyond provides a free website analysis for anyone who asks (at least they do as of this writing). They believe that doing so goes beyond advice into actively participating in the lives of those who are looking to use their service.

You can check out more about that at the following link.
===> http://search-engine-optimization-and-beyond.com/A-simplemachinesforum/index.php?topic=36.0
I was quite pleased with the review they gave my http://commit2fit.info website.

PAID ADVICE
If you are going to have someone train you to be a successful Internet Marketer, then find someone willing to give you some type of guarantee.

“If our system doesn’t work for you, then you don’t pay a dime!”

It’s a gutsy approach to be sure. But it goes beyond the idea of pay us all your money and you will be a success approach. With this method you don’t know if you are being sucker punched or not and all you have to show for it in the end will be absolutely nothing.

I do know that there are indeed many people out there willing to provide a ton of advice if you pay them. I don’t know if anyone has the guts to work by the above approach. If I did I would probably sign up for their course in a second. When paying for a mentor or what not the heavy burden for success should be on the shoulders of the one providing the assistance rather than the one paying the bill.

THE MORAL
Pay for a mentor if and only if the mentor believes in their services enough to give you an awesome guarantee otherwise stick with the free advice; or better yet free website reviews.

Lizzie asks…

What jobs can I get with a Bachelor’s in Entrepreneurship/Small Business Management degree?

I have been out of college for about two years now and have worked a lot of random jobs like receptionist, gym member specialist, personal home cook, etc… -the kinds of jobs I don’t need a degree for. I graduated with a degree that is probably more geared toward consulting than a skill related field. What other kinds of jobs should I apply for?

My main passions are health, nutrition, psychology and public health.

barry0912 answers:

I find it ironic that you got a four-year degree in entrepreneurship/business management and didn’t mention anything concerning starting and running your own business. The brainwashing of us Americans into the template of automatically looking for jobs working for someone else is very strong. Unless, of course, you’ve already considered this and have no interest in this possibility.

As a business owner, you have total control of what you do and don’t do and your rewards when/if successful are virtually unlimited. And many businesses don’t require a lot of money to start. Plus it’s possible to get money in other ways other than out of your own pockets to start your business.

If you are interested, I would consider books written by Tyler G. Hicks. He has been writing books on this subject for many years (I recently got one with a copyright of 1966) and they are very good, IMHO. The only thing out of date seems to be the dollar examples he uses based on all the inflation over the years. He is still in business today. A number of people ding his books in reviews because he doesn’t take you through the whole process step by step and sometimes plugs his other materials, but I like him. I can virtually guarantee you’ll learn from his books. A true entrepreneur doesn’t need hand-holding. Just info, guidance, encouragement and options. I recently ordered a book of his entitled, “How to Build a Second Income Fortune in Your Spare Time” with a copyright of 1965, that I would very highly recommend to you in spite of its age. I’m only up to page 75 so far but it’s very, very good. I’m very glad I bought it.

I would suggest you go to Amazon.com or some other used book sellers on the internet and see if any of his books interest you and possibly get some ideas going in your head in the fields you are most interested in.

In school did you take coursework in business formation, business law, marketing and advertising? There are many good books on these subjects and I would use the reviews on Amazon.com to find the best ones to help you. Other business books on the subjects of interest and need to you to help you be super successful should also be considered. To look for good books on legal issues and the mechanics, I’d consider Nolo.com as an initial place to look. Their books are most often high quality, although some are of course better than others.

I am presently working on starting a nonprofit. It’s pretty hard to get fired when you’re the owner of the company. Plus, you can work at any job within your company as you desire. And switch around whenever you like. Or stay small and do it all. Or start off small and expand as you need or desire to. You can also start your business part-time while working a regular job until you start making way more money in your own business. Plus you can have more than one small business going at the same time if you’re so inclined.

My opinion is it’s pretty hard to beat the advantages and potential of the job of business owner. No matter what you do, it will build on your degree and experience in your field. That’s my suggestion.

Good luck, Lala. 🙂
