3 Ways to Get Noticed with Internet Marketing

Learn these 3 Ways to Get Noticed with Internet Marketing.  In order to promote or sell something online, first you must get yourself noticed. Here are some internet marketing tips that will help you get noticed so you can start making some profit.

Start Blogging

You can start building rapport and credibility as an expert by blogging about your skills, experience or passion. WordPress.org platform is the best known blogging tool out there. By building a blog on a targeted niche, you will be able to attract targeted audiences to your blog. People love to read about good stuff and through blogging you can attract people that are interested in your topic.

 Submitting Articles to other blogs

Another way of creating your online presence is by writing blog posts as a guest. If you don’t have a blog and would just like to promote your product then you can add a link to your author resource box linking back to your website in the articles that you submit to other blogs.

Writing for other blogs is not that easy and you would not want to submit to low ranked blogs. It is best to do some research and look for high authority blogs with a good PR.

But getting accepted in high authority blogs is another challenge. You can always contact the owner of the blog and submit an article for review. If the article is of good quality, then the owner will publish the article on their blog. Don’t make your article a sales pitch but rather give them good content that will educate your readers. Build curiosity to get them to click that link in the resource box.

 Set up link exchanges with other websites

Building back links is very important for any website/blog. You can contact other websites related to your niche topic and set up link exchanges with them.

The more links you set up the better you will get recognized by the Search Engines. The drawback of this technique is that not all websites agree to do exchange links, especially if your blog/website is new. Obviously, they would like to get also good link juice back to their sites. Everyone is looking for high ranking sites.

My advice would be to start with websites that are in the same level as you are and then gradually scale it up to the next level.

 Commenting on Popular Blogs

Yet another method highly used by internet marketers is commenting on popular blogs. Commenting is an excellent method for leaving a link back to your site.

Many bloggers will delete your comment if it is not relevant to the article. It is best to leave a good comment relating to the article if you don’t want your comment to reach the trash or spam folder. If they like what you write then your comment will get accepted thus generating for you a good back link to your blog.

I receive tons of spam comments daily, luckily my Akismet plugin takes care of it by sorting the comments as spam. I only approve comments that I feel is relevant to the topic.

You can get hold of the Akismet plugin direct from WP dashboard (when you install a new wordpress blog, plugin is already installed). In order to activate the plugin you have to open up a free account at WordPress.com, then insert the api key that they provide in the Askimet setting.

Be aware that there are number of SEO guys out there working for you to get back links for your blog. If you have a blog then you will notice that many of these just comment to get a link back to their sites. Don’t be like them or your comment will get deleted.

 Conclusion

These are some of the methods I use to get myself noticed. The method the most used by me is commenting. And I can really see the results when I look into the stats. As I am in the blogging industry, I write comments on various blogging sites. The stats do not lie when I see how many of these sites have referred my blog. People are curious and when they see your comments they will visit your website. Honestly I do the same myself.

So do apply these methods and get yourself known to the world. Apply them consistently and you will see the results coming in gradually.

If you like what I post then please do leave me a comment, I would appreciate it if you can share with your friends on Facebook and twitter also.

The mere fact of finding a making money opportunity online is not sufficient enough to earn money fast or have a profitable marketing business from home. We have to find out how to make this idea work out for us, how it can make us money.

The magic power of internet can bring you financial freedom and I suppose if you are fed up of your 9-5 job then turning toward internet can be the best choice you would ever make to finally free yourself and do the things that you always dreamt of doing.

But let’s stop dreaming as there are some fundamental things that are required even before you think of becoming rich. There is no such thing as get rich quick. No matter what background you are coming from you need to know something about internet. You need to follow courses to master the various techniques required to launch a profitable online business.

Things that you should really look at:

  • How to earn money online : There are various methods, affiliate marketing, opening up an e-store, blogging, article marketing, email marketing, etc.
  • What are my traffic generation and list building methods? Do I use free methods or paid advertising to generate traffic?
  • What am I actually promoting? Other peoples product or my own product
  • Who do I target?
  • What is my market?

Have you ever considered these factors? Starting an online business can be the easiest thing to do as very low cost and if properly applied, you can earn money fast. As usual there is always a big BUT. How and where do I start?

Every business success lies on the efforts that you put into it. The more devoted and motivated you are in achieving your goals, the quicker you will be able to accomplish them. But it takes time and effort, and this is what many lack. All these rumors about making tons of money in the next 30 to 90 days have upset many newbies. Seeing only failure have made them jump from one program to another, time after time, spending thousands in the hope of achieving that financial freedom.

Then there is procrastination. How many times have you bought a product and never looked at it or did not have the time to do it, always putting it aside for another day. Procrastination can be your worst enemy for online business success

The promise of the hidden treasure seems so close yet they are never achievable. Needless to say, that no one ever told us that to make any business profitable we have to keep trying consistently over and over again and only with one method/program.

There is an old saying, that I sure your have heard of. Try, Try, Try Again Until You Succeed”. I have learnt this in school and my main motivation is based on these simple but very effective words. It has kept me moving forward towards my goals.

Many who start as a newbie with online business face common failures of lack of ideas for a business. It is nothing uncommon, so many competition and so many markets but to find the ones that are making money opportunity can be very daunting.

We don’t want to start with a market where you are just a small fisherman in a big ocean with a variety of fish neither do we want to start in a pond with multitude of fishermen catching the same fish. What we are looking for is the exact kind of fish that we want to catch in a place where it is unknown to the other fishermen.

That is where micro-niche market comes in.

It is important to have the combination of two factors that are important for success

a) To have a market with a high demand and

b) To be in a market where there is low competition.

To sum up the two, we need to find a market where there is reasonably good level of demand and with very low competition.

But to come to a stage where we can identify these factors, it takes time. You have to be persuasive, consistent, motivated and devoted to your business. Then, you develop your skills with practice and experience. The more you put your heart and soul to it, the more you will find it exciting and a great desire to succeed.

There is a learning curve which we don’t want to accept and are always looking for the next golden opportunity.

So my final advice to you: stick to whatever method/program you are working on and try it once, twice, ten times before you say STOP it will not work for me.

Remember one thing nothing is easy in life but if we are motivated and passionate about it, then it can be ACHIEVED.

For some it can be only a dream. Why? because if you believe that you can become rich by Make Money Opportunities as a total newbie within 30 or 90 days then you will be disappointed.Very few people have succeeded (hardly 1%), so what about the 99% who are still here on the Internet. I am not saying these programs don’t work, the guys who have created these programs have tested and tried before putting it to the market . They work well for them. Then why we don’t succeed because when we don’t see results  in a few months, we get frustrated and jump over to another program. We don’t stick to the same program and do not work consistently. We don’t try to test it to the full extent. We lack focus. You need to create your business mindset.

A durable business takes time to build up and as the time goes by, you build momentum, skills and knowledge which creates for you a successful online business that will continue to build income for you. I am not saying that what they are promoting is wrong. Obviously, it works for them as they know the system but for you as a newbie venturing in these methods will only bring you disappointment as there is a learning curve. It takes time to understand and master any new technique. You should also overcome Procrastination.

Yes it is possible to start a successful online business and overtime make it profitable which can make you a good amount of money. And of course, oneday you will be able to  fully concentrate on your online marketing business from the comfort of your home.

There is no panic but if you are desperate and want to earn quick money then this website is not for you. Sorry to say that but take from my experience, you don’t become rich in a day, I would rather buy a lotto ticket and try out my luck. I am a firm believer of durable business relationship and long term business success.

My Blogging Experience – Discovering the Online Wealth Part 1

What is your experience in Blogging?

I hope you have not started like me. Having no knowledge about the virtual business, I ventured to find a share of the treasure which has made so many millionaires.

Blogging was a term totally new to me when I first started on the internet. My online career started with network marketing. Being a total newbie to network marketing, at that time, my upline told me that I should open up an account at free blogging site Blogger.com and promote my business. And that is what I did. Having no clue how to generate traffic or audience to my first page. I hardly got any instructions on how to build a blog page or how to post articles.

Yet with trial and error, I managed to get in my first post and anxiously waited for visitors to turn up. Well, to my disappointment  I had been waiting and waiting and waiting.

So why on earth wasn’t I getting and traffic to my site?

What was never told to me was that I had to frequently update my blog. Although Google likes Blogger.com, you need to post articles regularly, that what makes Google page crawlers look for interesting stuff in your articles. As I told you I was a total newbie to the internet, all I knew was type something on the Google search box and VOILA the answer was there for me.

Terms like keywords, page rankings, search engine optimisation etc. were things like someone was talking to me in “Martian” language. My response Yeah! Yeah! I have heard about it. But honestly haven’t had a clue what it was. Neither was I courageous to ask someone what was it all about.

So those days have been quite painful for me struggling to make that 1st appearance on the internet.

I was disappointed, still looking for answers to my questions but no where to find it. Finally, my blog went to as “sleeping mode” like a dormant volcano for about six months.

I started surfing more on the internet and came across those wonderful websites (blogs) “that is what I thought they were at that time”. These blogs had a www.Mynamedomain.com on it. That is the guys were branding themselves. I kept asking myself. How are they doing it? Why is mine tagged to a name.blogspot.com and why can’t I have one like them.

Yeah, I am sure you are laughing at me and making fun of me but honestly, I hadn’t a clue. I was mad and furious still trying to figure out how actually it works.

The saddest thing is that I was a computer programmer about 15 years back but never surfed on the internet. Internet has been very recent to me say about 3 to 4 years ago. Yeah, of course I knew how emails worked and something called internet was there but I was too much pre-occupied with the real world to get actually involved with the virtual world.

Ok, I shall end part 1 here and give you something to cheer you up.

TIPS FOR THE DAY.

You have two ways of creating blogs either free or hosted (paid) blogs.

1. The good sites  (free) that I have used so far are

a) Blogger.com

b) WordPress.com

I found blogger.com more handy in terms usability of the structure. I still have about 4 of them and I use them to bring traffic to this blog. It easy to add different affiliate programs to earn money.    You can easily add Adsense program. It is very Google friendly.

My advice: don’t create just one post and subscribe to Adsense, Google will straight away refuse it. You need to have “keyword based” articles in order for Google to be able to place ads in your posts. I will be talking about this in the coming article posts.

2. Let us talk about Keywords.

To get good search engine ranking, you need to have good keywords in your article headline and also in the articles itself

There are various methods of analysing highly targeted keywords. You will never find one best way to do it. Every marketer has his/her own techniques. One simple technique for keyword search is googles https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal#

Type in the word you would like to find. Say for example Dog Training. The tool will give you plenty of keywords based on that search criteria.

The key thing here is to go for keywords that have volumes more than 500 and above but don’t go for high volume keywords as they would be hard to rank for in the search engines

Now copy/paste each keyword in the google search bar and place “” around the word say for example you are looking for Dog Training Tips what you would do is “Dog Training Tips”. This will give you the number of people that are competing for that keyword (people like you and me for earning money).

If the number is less than 100,000 then it is a very good keyword to use. Depending on the keyword rarity I sometimes go up to 200,000.

I will be talking more about all these. Did not want to bore you all at one go. The poisonous dose is going to be slow and painful.

So until next time my friends. By the way, if you liked my article you may want to post a comment and tweet it to your followers.
