How to Maximize Your Autoresponder for Optimum Success

Copyright (c) 2009 Aldo Gonzalez

An autoresponder is one of the great inventions that the Internet has given to us. However it is only as good as you effectively use it. In this article we will take a look at a few things you can do to maximize the use of your autoresponder.

First of all you should keep in mind that you are building a list of people that can pay you back many times over in the future. Your autoresponder is an easy place to store names and e-mail addresses for future follow up. If you properly use it this can to continue to work as helping you build as large of a list of possible.

The next thing to keep in mind regarding your autoresponder is building relationships with your subscribers. Your ability to view these people as more than a name and e-mail address is paramount to your success.

One way to do this is put the emphasis on building relationships with them. You do this by addressing their needs and communicating with them beyond the normal selling focus.

There are multiple ways to develop relationships and build a list with an autoresponder. One thing you can do is put a sign up for them on every webpage and blog page that you build. Put these above the fold where people can see them and make it easy for them to subscribe.

Encourage people to subscribe by offering valuable freebies that entice them to trade their name and email address for your offer. Then communicate with them on a consistent basis so they get to know who you are.

One thing many Internet marketers do today is combine their autoresponder and blogging efforts. There are several ways you can do this!

For example when you make a blog post you can send out a mailing to your list notifying them about it. In that e-mail message you send a short couple of sentences and include the link to your blog where people can click to get the rest of the article.

On the flip side when you make a blog post you can include a subscription link right in the text of the blog article where a person can get more information by subscribing to your autoresponder. These are two effective ways to build your list and drive traffic to your blog.

There are many different autoresponders available on the market today and two of the best are Aweber and Getresponse. Because these are fairly inexpensive to use you do not want to cut corners on this valuable tool.

TheBestSpinner Reviewed Soon!

Best Article Spinner called thebestspinnerI was doing some research on my blog and noticed I somehow forgot to do a post on Jonathan Leger’s article spinner called TheBestSpinner!

I did this at great disservice to you…my reader because this is one of the most effective and important tools you can use if you’re using plr articles or want to create unique new versions of any snippet of text.

I’ve been using Leger’s article spinner since it came out….maybe 6 months ago…maybe more, I’m not sure and it really doesn’t matter, but…… I’ve ditched my favorite spinner called Power Article Rewriter. Most internet marketers have been using PAR for a long time and love it. Jonathan Leger literally blew up PAR with TheBestSpinner…. I mean power article rewriter doesn’t even come close to thebestspinner.

Every time I log into thebestspinner it seems as there is an update with some new feature! I was part of the beta testing for the software and it was really interesting to watch the development of this very functional software. It was literally developed by all the beta testers. Jon added new features as new users and beta testers started using the program. I could list all the features right now but using thebestspinner is the only way to see what it can really do. I promise this will be one of the most important weapons in your internet marketing arsenal!

TheBestSpinner works just as it’s name implies…. it really is the best spinner I’ve every used.

I think I’ll take some time next week and do a thorough review of thebestspinner and some video screen captures. Meanwhile, if you’re interested in investing in an article spinner, don’t hesitate because TheBestSpinner really is the best article and text spinner you’ll ever find!

Affiliate Marketing Strategy – Important Aspects of Affiliate Marketing

traffic geyser for an affiliate marketing strategyYou probably won’t be surprised to learn that the winning affiliate marketing strategy involves getting as much traffic (and as much targeted traffic) to your affiliate products as possible. And getting enough traffic starts with choosing a product or service that is guaranteed to generate interest and then to convert into sales.

One part of an effective affiliate marketing strategy is making sure that you leverage off of the merchant’s time and effort that have been put into his or her product or service. An experienced and skilled merchant will know that the more his or her affiliates are selling, the more he or she will earn. And therefore, he or she will continue to test and tweak the product’s or service’s sales page to make it into a the most compelling offer possible that makes it hard for people to refuse once they land on the page.

Mark Ling from Affilorama runs a membership designed to teach new internet marketers how to find profitable products and run profitable campaigns…..and if you’ve been running your own affiliate marketing campaigns….Affilorama will teach you how to be more profitable, developing a more effective affiliate marketing strategy….an excellent membership and highly recommended.

Look for sales pages that are simple and clean, that offer a compelling headline, testimonials and, if possible, even a timer that shows people how long they can claim the product or possibly the bonus that comes with it.

Once you’ve chosen a product with a proven sales page and conversion rate, you need to get as much high-quality traffic to the offer as possible. You can do this directly by advertising your affiliate link with:

  • PPC (pay-per-click)
  • classified ads
  • banner ads… etc.

Or you can set up a content blog or website that provides useful information on the niche of the product or service you are selling.

If you are just starting out, a blog might be the easiest way to get started and a WordPress blog is often the most highly recommended because it comes with many free plug-ins that will allow you to be more visible to the search engines.

Keyword research is an important part of any kind of affiliate marketing plan of action. After you’ve chosen the product or service that you want to promote, then choose the keywords that you are going to use to get traffic to your link or to your website or blog. Again, if you are new, you want to choose less competitive keywords. Software applications that perform keyword research are important…however, more important is the ability of the keyword research software to dig out profitable keywords! Micro Niche Finder is one such application, MNF has become one of the most popular, easy to use and effective methods of digging up profitable keywords for getting traffic to your web pages or blogs.

Go to the Google Adwords Keyword Research Tool (which is free of charge) and type in the general term that describes your product’s niche. This tool will then provide you with all the related search terms that people are actually using when they go to their browser and do a search. The tool also provides you general statistics on how often each term is searched, how competitive each term is, what people are bidding on this term in PPC ads, etc.

Start with lower-searched terms and use these in your blog/website content, or in your direct link advertising methods. As you start to get more visitors, you can start using more competitive terms in your affiliate marketing strategy.

Thoughts on Duplicate Content

I have a membership over at Niche Profit Classroom. They have an excellent program for developing various niche topics and monetizing these niches by either your own custom program or another way is through affiliate sales. Anyway, you can grab a membership for a couple of months and learn just about everything you need to learn about niche marketing…..some of the best teaching on niche marketing I’ve seen to date.

I was browsing through the NPC forum and noticed one of the members was wondering if they should list categories on their blog….anyway, I gave him my 2 cents :)

Duplicate content issues do come up when using categories or archives, however, there are pluins that can help eliminate the dup content issue.

As internet marketers I think we can get too tied up with the issues of duplicate content and we have to first ask ourselves who our customers or visitors are.

Chances are, the people who visit your website have no idea what internet marketing is or what duplicate content is…..they just want a solution to their problem.

They landed on your site.

They are looking for answers.

If you have a site with muliple categories, in my opinion, you really should list them. Have you ever landed on a wordpress blog and had no idea how to get to the next article or find out what else is on the blog?

Having categores listed tends to keep visitors on your site for a longer period of time.

Imagine you had a site on tomatoes, with 4 categories.

-how to grow early producing tomatoes
-starting your plants early
-the best cherry tomatoes
-identifying and killing pests

If the visitor search for “early producing tomatoes” and landed on one of your articles, he would be finished if he didn’t know what was on your site.

However, if you had the categories listed in the sidebar, you have 3 other tomatoe problems he could be interested in. In other words, “Categories” is an additional method of navigation, since most web surfers don’t know the difference, or care whether a site is static or a blog….they just want answers to their questions and categories or bread crumbs is an excellent way to give that visitor an idea of what is one your site.

If you only have 5 or 10 articles, all dealing with the same subject….then it wouldn’t be necessary to include categories.

I’m not sure if they promoted multiple categories with the NPC model, however, adding more content to your site attracts traffic and I would at least try it out on one of your sites.

If you do categories with the NPC theme, somehow it limits the category to pull up 5 articles. It would be nice to know how to remedy this.

How to Write Unique Content For My Website?

Many internet marketers like to increase website content by adding reprint articles. Although this might increase the number of webpages on one’s website, and it might even increase the quality of a website…..adding reprint articles can cause your webpages to looked by Google in a negative manner. Google wants unique content, or I should say Google LIKES unique content. There are a number of article writing software applications that help you to write unique content, however, Jonathan Leger’s application called Answer Analyst is one of the best article tools I’ve come across. Consider the following article on how to write unique content…..

Unique Content is the King!

The more unique your content, the more money you would likely to have

There are thousand of thousand websites out there! However, only a few get really popular!

What is the trick?

There is no trick! It is the content. Those popular website always has fresh and juicy and unique content loaded every time.

And of course, there are other factors as well.

Now, when you wanted to write the content for your website, do you often get stucked ? and do not know what to write about? and some of you may even ask other people opinion what to write!!

Then, my friend, I can tell you that you are in deep trouble. This is because the purpose of your website is out of focus!

Actually writing unique and effective content for your website is not difficult at all.

You only have to remember the following:

1) Zoom Down to the Niches Focus of Your Website

Let say you want to create a website regarding golfing. This topic is actually too broad.

You may consider zoom into areas like “How to choose a good golf rod”, “How to do a good golf swing”, etc. This would actually help to focus on the specified area. And naturally you are able to produce effective content. Of course, you could cover all the topics in your single website. However it would be very time consuming. I would recommend to do it from bottom up. Slowly build up your empire from specified area and then combine them together.

2) Define Your Visitors

There are many different people in the world. You have to define your content is meant for which group of people/visitors. This is very important.

3) Think in the shoes of the visitors

Too often, the webmaster is the writer itself. And you would notice that writer would unconsciously write things from the perspective of itself. However, this is very wrong! The content is actually meant for your visitors who come to look for information. You have to think from the perspective of visitors and write the content.

That’s it, folks!

Article Source:

Despite the many different opinions and thoughts about duplicate content, please understand this…’ll always do better with your own unique content. Even if you take a reprint article and comment on the article. You can add a small comment before the article, and a small comment after the article. This will help you to use reprint articles more effectively. Consider using Article Analyst to help you write unique articles or even just write some great comments, its a great tool to help you with any type of writing that requires research.

One of my favorite tools for using reprint articles is Article Stalker…use it carefully and remember, reprint articles can be just as effective and good as unique content!

WordPress eMember WordPress Membership Plugin Review

One of the most successful online business models is the membership business model. Before internet marketers began to use WordPress, they were using membership scripts on static webpages. Some marketers began to make big bucks, others achieved minor success but you don’t have to be a Wall Street Investor to know that monthly recurring income will beat the pants off a single sale any day!

If you’ve been marketing online for a number of years then you know of the mass pilgrimage from static websites over to the WordPress platform. Most memberships have stuck with their static sites and membership scripts….simply because it works. Plus migrating a membership over to a new platform could end up costing big bucks, be full of bugs and cause you to lose your members….so why bother. Just keep cashing those checks>:)

Well, there have been membership plugins for almost the last 2 years. These plugins were clunky, odd to use and often times just didn’t work. Thankfully it looks like today’s wordpress membership plugins are caught up to their old static membership scripts. These new plugins do some amazing things.

I memtioned in another post about the Wishlist Membership Plugin, a wordpress membership plugin that is probably one of the most powerful plugins I’ve seen to date, because it can do everything short of bake a cake, it can become a little awkward and difficult to use…..especially for the newbie. Another negative about Wishlist is the cost, by far one of the most expensive out there. If you’re in need of everything Wishelist does and your pocket book is stuffed with cash, I invite you to check it out. Seriously, I condone the investment of the best tools possible to build your business, however, often times, finances dictate what type of tools you can invest in.  I’m sure the competition will cause a rethinking of their pricing. But, it you want a membership plugin that can do just about everything under the sun, give the Wishlist Membership Plugin a look.

I started this post because I was excited and wanted to tell you about one very inclusive and affordable wordpress membership plugins called WordPress eMember Membership Plugin. For the last couple of weeks I’ve been searching for a preferably free membership plugin, however, I found those to be generally lacking in more than one category. In specific I want the membership plugin to add the new member to one of my Aweber Autoresponder Lists. I couldn’t find a free one to do that. In fact, the less expensive ones won’t touch that function.

Once I started reading about all the functions WordPress eMember membership plugin would do I really got excited….too many to list here, but it does handle the Autoresponder dilema. It’s super affordable at $27 dollars and I’m so excited to see that it will add new members to my selected Aweber Autoresponder list. We all know that building a list is one of the most important aspects of internet marketing. Once a visitor becomes a customer or a member, they will develop a  relationship and trust with you and consequently they are much more likely make a purchase, join another membership or take your advise. That’s why starting a free or $1 membership to access some type of valued content could be the beginning or your own online riches…..keep in mind, your list is a valued asset and don’t blast them with some offer every other day but deliver quality content or suggest they purchase a product only if you’ve had experience and can honestly recommend it.

What’s really cool is that the folks at have put together a series of related plugins that integrate with each other. This is so exciting, I can’t wait to give it them a try, they have an estore plugin….take all those ebooks and set up a store….or deliver your products, they have an affiliate plugin and a handfull of other plugins that all seem to be able to be integrated. I want to be upfront with you, I haven’t purchased any of these yet, but have done the research and as soon as I finish writing this post I plan on ordering the membership plugin…although I really would like to try the estore plugin but then again….the affiliate plugin looks like it would be of big help to me. Anyway, this plugin is integrated with other plugins these folks product….let me tell you just a few of the things that the WordPress eMember Membership Plugin can do:

  1. You can create various membership levels including a free
  2. Selectively protect the full or a section of an article. Create different membership levels and select what content (eg. posts, pages) can be viewed by each membership level.
  3. Very easy to use and it integrates nicely into your existing site. No site redesign or any changes necessary.
  4. It is pre-integrated with the WordPress Affiliate Software Plugin. So if you decide to boost your membership signups by introducing an Affiliate Program (award affiliates that redirect visitors who become your member) later then all you have to do it activate the other plugin.
  5. Fully Integrated with WP eStore Fully integrated with the WordPress eStore (WordPress Shopping Cart) plugin.

There appears to be a few negatives depending on your viewpoint. Although the plugins are very affordable, they appear to be single user license which means only one site per plugin, there is a multi-site license but I couldn’t find a developers license. I’m only guessing on this one, but I haven’t seen this company around until now which means they are fairly new to the plugin scene and there’s probably not enough history to determine whether their support is going to exist and exactly how good it will be….correct me on this if I’m wrong.

Despite those small negatives, these guys have put together an awesome group of plugins….if they work as good as they say, you can greatly expand they use of any wordpress site…..from membership site to complete ecommerce site! Just imagine what you could do with all the eproducts you’ve stashed away all these years….if setting up an estore or estore/membership site is as easy as they say,  you’ll be able to make good use of the products you have and get good materials into hands of those that need it.

Don’t forget, if you develop sites for others of offline markets such as brick and mortar stores, you now have the ability to easily set up an estore for your clients. Better yet, introduce them to the concept of online memberships and the benefits these have for promoting and distributing their products!

Once more, you can find the plugins at these links:

  1. WordPress eMember Membership Plugin
  2. WordPress Affiliate Platform Plugin
  3. WordPress eStore Plugin

Legitimate Make Money Ideas Online Really Exist

Although there are hundreds even thousands of different methods or ways to make money online it becomes very easy to be suspicious or ever think that all these methods of making money online are scams. Unfortunately some internet marketers get caught up into promoting their products and services by using hype, they might even exaggerate the money making powers of their websites. But overall, being able to make money relatively quickly and easily online is not some unattainable goal . . .more and more people are doing it every day. Before I go too much further, you should consider checking out an internet marketing forum that teaches a variety of different internet marketing business models such as the forum. I’ll use the rest of this article to discuss some of the more realistic ways of making money online.

Online Jobs:
Surprisingly you can find a lot of jobs online that actually pay by the hour. The better paid ones are considered to be contract jobs. Just a few examples of jobs you can find online are copywriting and editing/proofreading of web content/ebooks/newsletters, etc. Take a look at


Most of these hourly online jobs are typically boring jobs like sorting, but what the heck…money is money. This is one of the least exciting make money ideas but the jobs do exist if you look in the right places. It’s important to ask questions so you can eliminate getting scammed, consider asking the following questions:

1. Who will pay me?
2. When will I get my first paycheck?
3. Will I be paid a salary or will my pay be based on commission?
4. What tasks will I have to perform?
5. What is the total cost (if any) of the program?
6. What will I get for my money?

It may also help to check out the company with your local consumer protection agency, state attorney general, and the Better Business Bureau in the community where the company is located, as well as in the community where you live.

Posting in Forums: If you’re the type that likes chatting to other people, giving advice, asking advice, etc., you could get paid for this within certain forums. Owners of new forums have a problem if there aren’t a lot of conversations going on. They resolve this by paying for posts. If this idea appeals to you, jump in, share your ideas and get paid for it! To find forum posting jobs, just type “How to Find Forum Posting Jobs” in any of the major search engines.

Affiliate Programs: You’ve probably already heard of affiliate programs and the fact that they are one of the easiest ways to start making money online, some affiliate marketers make big bucks! The key with selling affiliate products/services is learning to generate traffic which you can then funnel to your merchant. Affiliate marketing is very popular and there is a learning curve involved but it has made millionaires out of many regular people. Consider joining an affiliate internet marketing membership that specializes in teaching affiliate marketing….one such affiliate marketing membership is Affilorama!

Gaming: Are you a gamer and your passion is gaming? Believe it or not, you can make some good money by gaming online. Top players get paid handsomely for participating in tournaments, attending gaming fests and endorsing products. And it’s not just for the big timers. Pretty much anybody can make a couple hundred dollars a week with this.

As an internet marketer, you will have to distinguish yourself from the competition if you want to succeed. You should know your target audience and know your competition even better. Do not let self-doubt stop you from accomplishing your goals. Every successful internet marketer gives their business the very best effort possible. Hard work and determination will make your home-based business a success and provide you with a steady stream of income.

Starting a home-based business is one of the most exciting and challenging endeavors you will ever undertake. A sound business plan and the will to succeed will set you apart from the competition. Choose the products or services you provide carefully. Make certain your services will be needed over the long term and make customer service your top priority. A loyal customer base is the key to the success or failure of your home-based business. A home-based business is an excellent way to gain independence and financial freedom. A sound business plan and a strong work ethic are all it takes to succeed.
