Getting Your Emails Opened For Your Online Internet Business!

Email is rated the number one way to connect with people and get your service or product information read for your online internet business. It even has a higher return on investment over direct mail, or newspaper. Now with I-pads, I-phones, cell phones and PDAs email is really easy to access.

When email first came about, people were excited to receive emails. It was all new and what ever they had sent to them, made them feel important, so they would open it and read it. Now with millions of people on the internet and all the spamming going on, it is really hard to get your emails open.

Unless you give people a really good reason to open your email, it will just get deleted. Sometimes it will not even get to where your sending it, as the spam filters will delete it first.

Be Personable

One way to get your emails open is to use the persons name. Everyone likes to be recognized as a person and not just another sale. One of the easiest ways to use their first name that is in your list is through Aweber.

Aweber costs $19.00 a month and you can personalize each and every email blast you send out. It is real easy to sign up to and they will also track your success. They let you know how many times the email was opened, and even how many have opted out.

Having an Option

Having an opting out option is another real important part of emailing. By giving someone the choice of opting out of receiving your email will help you in being accused of spamming them.

Always make sure you are not double sending an email to the same person. Some people might be so excited about your product or service, that they will opt in to your website more than once. By doing this you could be sending them a lot of the same email, which again will be considered spam. Aweber will stop this from happening with their automated service.

Double check to make sure the address you are emailing to is a legitimate one. There are soft bounces and hard bounces. A soft bounce is when an email will come back, but only because of a glitch in the system. Trying again will allow it to go through. A hard bounce, means that it is a bad email and if you keep trying to send to it, it will be considered spam. Anytime your email is considered as spam, your IP, Internet Protocol, (a number that is assigned to every computer connected to the internet), will look bad, and you may have just ruined any chance of using email as a source of advertising.

Divide Into Groups

When emailing to a mass of clients, try divided them into groups. For instance if your selling weight loss, email to those that are only interested in loosing weight. If someone is interested in a business opportunity, email them about a great business opportunity you have come across.

The more you know what people are searching for, the more your email will get opened up and read, and the less you will be considered a spammer. By using Aweber, it will help you filter through most of the things that can cause you to look like a spammer. The more emails you get opened up, the more successful your online internet business will be.

3 Simple Steps To An Income With Affiliate Programs

Today, people are  looking to make additional income or some extra money and they are turning to the internet in droves. Many people are learning how to make money online, and specifically, how to make money with affiliate programs. Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways to get started online because you don’t need to sell your own product or service. All you have to do is sell someone else’s product or service and you make a commission.

Affiliate marketing can be easily understood. You’ll find 3 simple steps involved in successful affiliate marketing. First, you need to find the product or service that you want to promote. Secondly, you need to make sure that your offer is in front of a lot of people. And lastly, you need to build a list of the people who you show the product/service to, regardless of whether they end up buying it. Make sure you understand this last concept because it’s crucial to the success of affiliate marketing and any internet marketing venture!

If you are brand spanking new to affiliate marketing then you are going to want to figure out what type of product or service you want to promote. Ask yourself this question, “Where do you find the product or service you want to promote?” ClickBank is one of the most popular sites that you can use and it’s also very quick and easy to get started. All you need to do is register for free and then go into the MarketPlace section. Here you can try search what you might want to promote by category or keywords. I recommend you sort your choice by “gravity” which is not the only important factor but it’s a very good indicator if you’re just starting out. You can get into a lot more complicated analysis of the “right” products later on. Once you choose a product, just click on hoplink, put in your clickbank NickName, and you’ve got your affiliate link, ready to promote. Many people have started their affiliate marketing businesses by reading Rosalin Gardner’s famous ebook on affiliate marketing, called the Super Affiliate Handbook.

nicheclassroom-dummiesGetting eyes on your affiliate link will be your next problem….that is, how do you get people to see your affiliate links. Once you’ve chosen your product/service, you’ve come to the key of how to make money with affiliate programs. . .getting traffic to the program. You can use article directories to market your products but make sure that you concentrate on those that have high page ranks and allow affiliate links. Another option is pay-per-click (PPC) although you need to read the affiliate program’s rules before you try this. Some affiliate companies do not allow the use of their name in PPC ads for example. And one of the easiest and most popular ways to make money with affiliate marketing is to place links on blogs.

There’s always secrets to this internet marketing stuff, some real, some just BS. This next concept could make the difference between making a lot of money online with affiliate marketing or failing miserably. Here goes, the last step is a little bit more complicated and can be done after you get the hang of the first two. Basically, you’ll want to make sure that you get the contact information of the people who show some interest in your product so that, even if they don’t buy it now, you can still keep in contact with them and they may end up purchasing either this product or something else you sell later on. In order to do this, you’ll need to create your own squeeze page which contains a contact form. You advertise this squeeze page and once someone fills in their contact information, you direct them to your affiliate link. The company that will fulfill your needs when it comes to collecting the contact information and automatically sending emails is called Aweber….remember that name and click on that link. An autoresponder service should be one of the first purchases you make for your online business because you will use it with every aspect of internet marketing and not just affiliate marketing.

One more thing you should really consider if you are going to start your own affiliate marketing business. You need a state of the art affiliate link cloaker or ….. this is software or a script that disguises your affiliate links and helps you to ensure that you get the proper credit if somebody clicks on your link and buys through your affiliate link. Advanced Link Cloaker is a product that a good friend of mine has created and is something you should consider purchasing for your business, it has the potential of helping your make and keep a lot of money! Link cloaking can be performed a number of different ways using a variety of different pieces of software or scripts, in fact, you can do if for free if you want, Alan Peterson’s book The Definitive Guide to Link Cloaking will show you  and explain to you everything you need to know about cloaking and hiding your affiliate links.

Finally, affiliate marketing is one of the best internet marketing methods someone can use to start making a little extra money online. Learn the basics of affiliate marketing by joining a membership exclusively designed to teach you the basics of affiliate marketing, Affilorama is probably the best membership designed to teach anyone from the newbie to experienced marketer how to best use affiliate marketing to make a great living online. I’ll leave you with one though, If you want to make money with affiliate programs, I recommend to not depend too heavily on one product or one site. It’s no different than the old adage, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!”

Can You Really Make Money Doing Nothing With Internet Marketing

The short answer is a resounding “NO”! At least not if you are new to marketing online. Not at first. But most everyone dreams of being able to make money doing nothing. And internet marketing can be used to eventually make passive residual income. Residual income is income that continues to be generated after the initial effort has been expended. So, if you work hard and do things right in the beginning, you will continue to earn off of this effort, even long after you have moved on to other things. One thing you should do is join a membership that teaches internet marketing, one such membership is Earn1KaDay.

Success in internet marketing usually comes very slowly. You could go on for years without seeing any return, but if you are consistent and continue to work at it, you will gradually begin to see the money rolling in. And once this happens, you will see the snowball effect take place and eventually you will be able to make money doing nothing!

So what do you need to work at? You need to bring traffic to whatever it is that you are promoting – to your blog or website or to your affiliate product website. The more people you can get to your website, the more sales you will make.

So what are some of the pros and cons of internet marketing?

First of all, if you prefer to have a regular “guaranteed” paycheck where the amount of time you put in equals the amount of money you receive, internet marketing is probably not for you. If you don’t like to study and learn new things, learning internet marketing is probably not for you. If you need someone else to motivate you or manage your activities, internet marketing is not for you.

One of the most obvious pros of internet marketing is that you don’t have a boss telling you what to do. You work for yourself and make all the decisions. Being able to work whenever and wherever you please is a great goal to shoot for.

Your pay is not an hourly wage or salary so there is no limit to how much money you can make. Let’s say for example that you decide to write your own e-book (it may sound difficult to you now but this is a very attainable goal if you do just a little bit of training). You spend a lot of time on this e-book and then you make money off of the sales for years to come – you just need to make sure that you are driving traffic to the sales page of your e-book.

This is what passive residual income is. . .and it is one of the greatest benefits that internet marketing offers. Putting out or representing a quality product once or twice a year will have a great impact on your income for the months or years, even if you’re not working. Again, that’s how you can make money doing nothing.

Header Graphics and Review of Niche Profit Classroom

I thought I’d post a review of my progress with Niche Profit Classroom here, along with some of the details of the process including the positives and negatives. You might say this is a review of Niche Profit Classroom. Sure, in some circumstances I’ll be giving away the niche, however, the secret to any success in Niche Profit Classroom is in the webinars, pre-recorded teaching classes and their super secret method of developing the actual website.

Continued Review of Niche Profit Classroom

After poking around for a while I’ve found the Niche Profit Classroom to have a ton of content designed to help you get your websites online and start getting free organic traffic. I’ve been in the forum, trying to see if there is any personal contact with the owners…..still nothing. However, if seems like there are a lot of newbie types working their way through the process of taking the provided materials and getting a website uploaded and working.

****************************************

Sometimes it’s difficult to remember how difficult it can be for a newbie to get started online. There’s so much to learn and understand. Usually when you’re new to the whole internet marketing thing you become very vulnerable to all the claims of “make money online” or “simple as 123″ maybe “get online fast”……so, when I looked in the forum I could tell there were a lot of newbie types struggling to make there way through the process of Niche Marketing.

The entire process of Niche Marketing isn’t one of those concepts or processes that can be accomplished overnight! There’s much to learn and unless you’re ready to pay someone to help you understand the entire process it simply is going to take some time of studying and applying before you become competent in developing any niche and are able to profit from it. Niche Profit Classroom has all the systems in place to help you with the process….probably the best I’ve seen to day, however, if you’re new to online marketing please don’t think you can pay for a month’s worth of the membership and start selling products. You’ll spend much of your time watching the videos and studying the materials in an attempt to understand the concept of Niche Marketing. Think of it as being similar to taking an advanced college course. Better yet, think of it as trying to get a college degree in one specific subject, area or discipline because of the amount of information you will need to become competent at.

One area that you’ll need to deal with is graphics. They have a couple of videos dealing with your website graphics and book covers. They even provide generic header graphics and book covers. You could probably even get away with using these graphics, however, you’ll really to create a unique website…..something that is different than everyone else. One way to set your website apart is by creating custom graphics. Most newbies will not be able to create custom graphics and will have to hire someone such as the folks at www.spGraphic.com

Here’s an example of a site with graphics provided by Niche Profit Classrooms

modeltrainsite1

Here’s the same site with a custom header graphic…..in my opinion changing this graphic is very important in order to differentiate your website from all the rest! Most internet surfers have viewed enough websites so that they can immediately tell whether a website some homegrown site or a professional quality type site. Graphics really do make a difference when it comes to website stickiness, how long the visitor stays and whether they make a purchase or not.

modeltrainsite2

I really like what the folks at Niche Profit Classroom have put together, however, in my opinion changing the graphics is just as important as rewriting plr articles. As in any membership only a small percentage will actually take action and start uploading websites using all the material provided, however, it is imperative to change the look of your site so it doesn’t look like all the other sites.  Looking at the 2 screen shots above you can see that the 2 header graphics are vastly different and the first one, provided by NPC, looks terrible and is the poorest excuse for a header graphic that I’ve seen.

NPC provides the .psd image which means that you can edit the graphic in Photoshop or GIMP, but I’d just start from scratch and create something totally different. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that the membership should be providing graphics of much better quality. The stuff they provide is garbage and since they claim to have many members, they surely can afford to pay for some decent graphics!

Even though their graphics suck, the membership at Niche Profit Classroom is well worth the money. Their knowledge of Niche Marketing is second to no one I’ve run across online.

Review of Slick Autoposter and Article Stalker

Thought I’d take a second and let you guys know how Slick Autoposter and Article Stalker is working. The thought of autoposting or autoblogging can seem daunting to many, but in reality all you need is a few good wordpress plugins and you’ll quickly see some results.

First, Slick Autoposter is is a wordpress plugin that will autopost to your wordpress blog a variety of different ways. The reasons people use autoblogging are legion, yet the purist will call it evil while in truth it will save anyone’s butt that has more than one wordpress blog. One of the biggest problems for the blog owner is keeping up with your blog posts. You really need to post at least once a day, otherwise Google will think your blog is irrelevant. When looking at autoposters you want to make sure you can randomize the posting, there are some autoposters that will post plr articles, some do datafeeds, some post rss feeds and some will post entire books. Slickautoposter does this and a whole lot more, I’d like to see you buy it for your own benefit, so go over to the salespage and take a look at all the fuctions. I can see an argument getting started here, sure, if you click on one of my affiliate links then I’ll make a few bucks and that’s a good thing. But, that’s not why I do this, I like to help people who are looking for direction or stumbling along and one way I can do that is to expose them to what works for me and my friends. Whether you do anything with it is totally up to you. I you buy it and need help, send me an email. Contact me through this blog, I’d be glad to help!

articlestalkermanIn the graph below you can see how Slick Autoposter and Article Stalker doubled my traffic in a few short weeks. The best thing is, once I set up a autopost, I’m done and can get to work on something else. The big benefit of Article Stalker is that AS pulls articles with full text of the article and then posts the entire article. Almost all autoposters will only post a portion of the article, which becomes irritating to the reader of the blog post. I was shocked to see how Slick Autoposter using articles from Article Stalker more than doubled the traffic to my blog.

To be fair I must mention that I am also using a wordpress plugin called Auto Social Poster which I have to contribute much of the success to. I’ve been using Auto Social Poster for almost 2 years and although skeptical at first, I’ve been surprised by it’s effectiveness. Often times the guru’s will tell you to buy this and do that while showing you the great results they get. When truthfully, they leave out some of the details. Auto Social Poster is a powerful plugin because it will randomly submit a social bookmark to a social networking site on each post. If I go through the trouble of looking for the proper long tail keywords for a blog post, write the post and then submit it……I’ll find my post on somewhere between page 1 to 5 of Google within an hour. Now if you combine the work of Auto Social Poster with Slick Autoposter and Article Stalker you’ll find the results stunning. You’ll pay anywhere from $300 to $400 dollars for the two plugins and one script, but you can use them on unlimited domains. These are powerful tools and I guarantee they will get you results if you use them properly. In fact, I had to pay for a seminar to find out the Auto Social Poster (ASP) was one guru’s secret weapon.

The reason (ASP) is fairly secret is that people just don’t want to pay for their tools and think they can get results with free tools. You can do a lot with free tools, but real money producing internet marketing tools will get you there before you get frustrated and quit. Let me give you an example. As a carpenter I can build a house with a box of nails, a hammer and hand saw…..it will take a long time! If you give me an air nailer, electric saw that same house can be framed in a couple of weeks. The same goes for making money online. Invest in some real tools and see if you don’t get some real results!

My Traffic Doubled By Using Slick Autoposter and Article Stalker

slick-autoposter

As with any tool, don’t abuse these tools or you’ll risk getting your blog delisted. I can’t say that for sure, but only assume. In other words, you wouldn’t want to set Slick to start posting 5 articles a day, every day for the next 6 months. That would surely get Google alarmed. I always experiment with anything that is automated to see how its going to work and then  I install the scipt or plugin on my primary blogs.

Here’s a Testimonial I posted for Slick Autoposter!

I thought I’d stop by and hype you up a little :)

I wanted to give you a quick review of Slick Autoposter and Auto Stalker for the benefit of your customers.

Seriously, Ed’s products are always top notch worth the investment. Slick Autoposter is one of my favorite tools. I have some health problems which interrupt my posting schedule on my blogs, Slick has saved my butt so many times I can’t remember!

Just recently I started using another one of Ed’s products, Article Stalker, and when Article Stalker is combined with Slick Autoposter you have a pretty powerful weapon. At first I wasn’t sure about the articles that Article Stalker pulled and I was a little skeptical I’d get any traffic from the articles. Quite frankly, I thought that Slick would be posting articles from Article Stalker and that would keep Google happy.

Much to my surprise, I started getting daily traffic from the articles posted by Slick Autoposter. The quality of the articles is excellent and I even get people commenting on them.

Anyway, Slick is a potent weapon. Combine it with Article Stalker and you go nuclear!

I was surprised when I checked out some stats, but it looks like Slick & Article Stalker doubled my traffic….Thanks Ed :)

You’ll see a small downturn in traffic…..that was my fault because I had the blog offline for a period of time. Otherwise as you can see, Google started sending me traffic after autoposting for a couple of weeks.
