MANNNNnnnnnn I have had it. I am pretty stubborn but I also know when I am licked.

Internet marketing is simple, but not easy. My best advice is to look at what everyone else is doing. Really analyse what others do.

E.g. See an ad on a website you are visiting? There is a good chance that they are making money through displaying that ad. No need to reinvent the wheel, just reverse engineer and mix it up with your own twists….

Look up a product review article? Someone wrote that and are probably getting affiliate commissions for it. See a review on YouTube? Its all simple stuff, you just have to go ahead and do it. Learn as you go.

Be a pro at what you do, not a jack of all trades master of none. Don’t over complicate it, keep it simple and go. Humans have a tendency to make everything a lot more complicated than it needs to be, otherwise it is ‘too easy’. Mindset is a huge factor.

Good luck mate.

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.24-7pressrelease.com/
http://www.pressbox.co.uk/cgi-bin/links/add.cgi

http://www.theopenpress.com/
http://www.przoom.com/
http://www.prweb.com
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/
Recycler.com http://www.recycler.com/
Yahoo Classifieds http://classifieds.yahoo.com/

barry0912 answers:

I think it will depend on your knowledge level, what business you are marketing, and what kind of budget you have to work with.

You can build a responsive marketing campaign using only free methods, but it may take longer to see results depending on your knowledge level. A marketer with the right knowledge might get a far better response using free methods than a less knowledgeable person using paid methods.

If you have the budget for it, you can hire someone with expertise in all the areas mentioned. What is the “cheapest for its buck” will be what gives you the best ROI, or Return On Investment. That means your ads and traffic source (audience) will need to be very targeted and already interested in what you are promoting. Any contextual advertising source such as PPC or Organic search will be best for that, but each method or site can be “best” depending on how you approach the people using those sites.

How you handle your sales funnel is also important to converting prospects to sales. You may lose money on the front end, but if you are offering something of value like a free giveaway to build a customer list and are building a relationship with them based on establishing trust and authority, you can experience a far greater return on the back end of the sales process. Even if you break even on the front end, you are at least building a valuable future customer list for free.

With social sites, you have to think about the types of people who use each site. Facebook users will likely have a different mindset and purpose for being on that site as compared to Twitter or LinkedIn. Knowing what motivates the majority of users on a given site will help you to design the right approach for each site.

I don’t think you can make a blanket statement about which is best or cheapest. Your knowledge level and willingness to test different approach methods for each site will determine what works best for you. I could say that Facebook is best, but out of 100 people that follow that advice and try advertising on Facebook, maybe one person would actually succeed in making a profit. Is it the site that is the problem or the knowledge of the person creating the campaign?

People using Google or Yahoo are likely searching on a specific topic. People using LinkedIn are professionals or business owners. People using Facebook are mostly looking to alleviate boredom or connect with friends. People using Twitter are people following a news feed, their favorite niche or hobby, following their favorite celebrity, or just have a need to tell the world what they are doing every other moment of the day.

If you design a sales approach that capitalizes on the mindset of each site user, you still have to identify who the buyers are. In organic search or PPC, that means finding buyer search terms, product names, product reviews, etc. With the other sites, you may have to do some testing, or offer a freebie for filling out a survey to find out what people are looking for.

I don’t claim to be an expert on marketing, but I have failed enough times to have learned a few lessons on the topic.

Brilliant Considerations On Making Your VA Business Profitable

First of all we must take a moment to carefully define success — thefreedictionary.com says that success is, “The achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted.”

My definition of success is how happy I am, and this is directly linked to my inner Michelle telling me what I truly desire in life, now and in the future. It took me some time to come to the realisation that I wasn’t craving a boatload of money, exotic cars or a rooftop suite overlooking the ocean. I absolutely do want to have enough collateral to enable me to travel some, to take time to enjoy my children as they grow up and to make sure that I have enough financial stability to enable me to live a comfortable life rolling forward.

Many businesses that start online will eventually fail, but why is this? What dangers lurk that you should be aware of, ready to doom your business to failure almost before you even start? Sometimes we might think that we might become lazy as we work from our house, or might not be tenacious enough to keep going, or might simply doubt that we have what is needed and so I would like to introduce you to some concepts that I think are useful factors in helping to determine whether you really do have “what it takes”, in order to establish a profitable and efficient Virtual Assistant Business.

#1 – Is Your Business Make Or Break?

You might be at the position in your life where you are trying to dig yourself out of a deep financial hole. If you don’t get out of that hole, are things going to go very badly for you and your family? If the answer to those questions is yes, then I consider you in a very good position to have a successful business, because you are more likely to be in the mindset to do whatever it takes to make your business work. This could mean a number of things, even staying up until the wee small hours of the morning, or dedicating several months to taking on new skills and brushing up your existing ones to get ready.

To underline this point, I recently listened to an interview, where a successful businessman was asked how he became so successful and he replied that he had a great motivation, to be able to feed his family and look after his wife. You can find a great deal of motivation in this fear factor, as few of us really like to contemplate failure. And to take advantage of this situation and turn it around fast, seriously consider taking on someone looking to become a virtual assistant, or even a team looking to become a virtual assistant business, to maximise your efforts in a very short span of time. Always keep in mind that someone looking to become a virtual assistant can help you with all the details, at a great price too.

2. Do You HATE Where You Are Right Now?

Is there something in your lifestyle right now that you hate? Sometimes we have to spend many long hours away from home, or are not happy with our living arrangements or where we are based, or any other number of things which are lifestyle related and these elements can be real motivators when it comes to pushing for the establishment of your Virtual Assistance Business, your gateway to the future, if you will. If you have something in your life right now that you simply can’t stand, you’ve got a much better than average chance of succeeding. A real desire for change can present us with an amazing amount of motivation and dedication and when combined together, can really make the difference between failure and real success.
