PostHeaderIcon Make Use Of Everything Useful For Your Online Business

I’m guilty.

I’ve been ignoring all the stuff I could be using for my websites and making cash online with. It’s stupid, but at least I have admitted I have the problem and started doing something about it. You might want to read about my stupid mistake and see if you’re doing it too.

I realised I had a problem when I looked at my PC hard drive, it was full of stuff I’d downloaded either for free, or worse that I’d paid for. You see all this stuff was sitting on my hard drive unused, all good sellable stuff or useful information to help build my business. I was even paying for an incredibly useful monthly products site and downloading more and more without using any of it.

I had ebooks with resale rights on all sorts of topics, I had website templates, wordpress blog templates (and complete sites) all of which should have been somewhere online for sale to make me money, instead I was letting them sit idle. The big problem was that I was also paying for unused web hosting where I could put it all with a price tag on it.

So I have decided to start putting the products with resale rights up on my various domains for sale, and some on sites tailored to the niche they are in. I found I had a Wordpress plugin to make setting up buy buttons and uploading the products simple (WPSalesAutomator) so I installed it on a few blogs I owned and setup some others like Self Improvement Manuals which was a site which had fallen into disrepair but is now being built back up.

I started using the monthly products site I was paying for and using all that they gave me which was an awful lot more value than I pay to be a member (The Unselfish Marketers Vault if you want to know more). I downloaded some of the instant blogs from The Unselfish Marketers Vault members area and put them on my domains using the underused hosting account I pay for at Hostgator.com. It’s a little work but spreading it out over a few weeks I am starting to make use of a lot more of the stuff I have and can get.

The upshot of the few hours spent here and there and without spending any more money is that my Adsense earnings have increased slightly (Adsense sites downloaded from The Unselfish Marketers Vault ). I have sold some ebooks which hadn’t even been available to make me anything sat on my hard drive, and some of the ebooks I can get from (guess where) will make a great addition to some of my other sites to make me a little extra.

So there’s my guilty little secret, I have been wasting the resources available to me, resources like The Unselfish Marketers Vault and Hostgator as well as domains I had collected. I’m trying to put all that behind me and keep on using everything I can, how about you?

PostHeaderIcon Building Your List with Give Away Ventures

With the awareness of the importance of list building, comes a modern Internet Marketing trend which was started just a couple of years ago for the mutual benefits of all Internet Marketers and mailing list owners.

This scheme is more generally accepted as a “starting a Give Away venture”.

In a true sense, a Give Away event is a lot like a big time type of ad swaps. In a nutshell, a group of mailing list owners partner as one and combine their personal gifts in one limited-time event.

Every participating partner contributes a gift to the event. The gift can be a free product, membership pass or a product he is already selling (if he is kind enough to offer into the event).


The participating partner prepares a Lead Capture Page where he gives the gift in exchange for the subscriber’s email address. In other words, in order for a visitor to download the digital gift, he must opt in and subscribe to your mailing list.

When the gifts are shared together into one event (site), each partner will then endorse the Give Away event to their own mailing lists.

The end result: plenty of visitors to one event as a collective endeavor of a number of participating partners!

With so many visitors downloading gifts from one focused event, it is a real win-win situation. This is because the visitors get to download several free gifts for their own use and each partner gets to build their own mailing list!

You can easily get notified about a Give Away event in the making by communicating with other Internet Marketers often or participating in Internet Marketing chat and Joint Venture boards.

An Easy Way To Improve Your Internet Marketing Strategy
If you have an online business presence, then there’s a good chance you want to know how to improve your internet marketing strategy. Perhaps your current efforts are bringing in some form of a return, but you know you could still be doing better. OR, maybe you are seeing no results at all and need an entirely different approach. Either way, there is a simple thing you can do to improve your strategy.
The main principle behind internet marketing is to value and respect your customers. Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? Yet far too many online marketers see each and every one of their visitors as potential marks. After all, if one person doesn’t buy, or if they ask for a refund, it doesn’t matter because there are so many people online around the world. In other words, they see it as a sea full of people ready to be suckered. Needless to say, this is the wrong approach.
In fact, what was just described isn’t really marketing at all. If someone just sees their online visitors as suckers ready to be taken for as much money as possible, then there isn’t any need to market to them at all. Instead, all the seller has to do is make up the biggest, most convincing lies possible to separate people from their money. Like I said, that’s not marketing.
Instead, what you need to do is respect each and every visitor. Remember that they are real people. Value them. I’m not suggesting you’re not doing this; not at all. The point is that there’s a good chance you good be doing it better than you already are.
The key is to put yourself into the mind of your customers. What do they want? Why do they want it? What does it mean if they can’t have it? Questions like these will help you shape your marketing message in a way that not only connects with your visitors, but shows that you care about them.
Whatever you do, don’t lie to them. Everything you are offering to your customers needs to be able to stand on its own merits. If you feel you have to lie “just a little” then it means your product needs to be better, or that you don’t really believe in your product. But, if your product isn’t as good as it could be, then you really aren’t ready to sell it. And if you don’t believe in your product, that will show through in your sales copy, and your site’s visitors won’t believe in it either.
If you want to improve your internet marketing strategy, then put your customers first. Think about them as real people, with real problems and real wants and needs. How successful you are will be directly related to how well you understand and connect with them. Remember, customers are the lifeblood of your business, so always value them and treat them with the respect they deserve.

PostHeaderIcon Using Twitter As a Sales Tool

If you haven’t heard of Twitter by now then you must have been living under a stone. Twitter is everywhere, pop stars, tv stars and film stars all twitter. Marketers and sales people are also using it, as are everyday Joes and Janes just like you. At first site Twitter looks like just another online time waster for the bored to tell everyone who is following them about the boring things they are doing. If that’s so then why are all these famous people, and marketers alike using it?

Because it’s a great tool to get more exposure for yourself or your products. Twitter is a great marketing tool for making sales. But how can you use it? Surely your friends who follow you already know about you so they already know you and your products right?
True.

There’s more to it than that though. Twitter is a little viral tool just waiting for you to cash in on it. Imagine you have your ten friends following you, and they have their ten friends each who can all see that they are following you too. Then they might decide to see why their friend is following you on Twitter. So they also follow you. Then their friends can also see them following you and do the same. Before long you can have hundreds of people reading your Tweet (the short posts you make on Twitter are called Tweets).

So now you have an audience of followers reading your Tweets, and it’s growing exponentially as more followers followers start following you. Now you can keep them interested, and also add in the odd Tweet about your website or blog where they can find out about or even buy your product. Each time you Tweet and these followers all read it, they could be clicking on your link to a sales page or informative articles with affiliate products in.

There is of course a balance to be found, and you will need to keep the interest of your followers or they will stop reading your Tweets, but if you can keep your followers happy and keep adding more interesting Tweets then you can really use Twitter as a very effective sales tool. When you consider how quickly Twitter is growing, and the viral effect of the followers can you see how much it can do for your business? Isn’t it time you started Twittering?

PostHeaderIcon Best Way To Make Money In A Recession

The hands down best way to make money in a recession is to find a way of making money that actually uses the recession instead of suffering from it.

What do I mean by that? Good question. What I mean is that you want to look for a business that will not be affected by the recession, or even better, a business that will actually grow during the recession.

One example is dealing in used goods. When people are low on cash they will be buying more used items. So if you always dreamed of setting up a store that sells good but used kids’ clothing, for example, right now is probably a good time to do it.

But running a store in your local area takes capital to pay for the premises and requires a lot of knowledge about running a business, from consumer law to hiring staff. That is enough to put off many people.

A better idea would be something that you can do from home without any staff or overheads. Something that you can be making money while you learn the business. So what is an example of this? Selling or promoting goods on the internet.

We are so lucky to be having this recession right now. Does that sound crazy? It’s not, because this is the one time in history when there is a huge exploding market that is not going to be affected by a downturn in the economy. People are going to be buying more online because it’s cheaper.

Take the example of used clothing. Selling your stock online instead of from a bricks and mortar store means that you do not need any capital, you do not need any staff, people can buy 24/7 and you just deal with the orders whenever you want. What’s more, your customer base is not limited to the people who live in your town and pass by your store. You have billions of potential customers all over the world.

But better still, you do not even have to sell anything yourself. You can earn money online in many other ways. For example, you can be an affiliate, earning money by promoting a company’s goods for a commission. Set up a few websites doing this, drive visitors to them and you could soon be earning regular checks.

Even in the luxury goods markets, some people are still buying but they will be looking around for the best deal. So the best way to make money in a recession from luxury goods is to find the best deal and put it in front of your website visitors.
