Review of Nikola’s Forum Alarm

Warrior Forum AlarmAre you a member at the Warrior Forum?

If not,  you really should be! You’ll find some of the best information and some of the most knowledgeable people regarding all aspects of internet marketing.

One of the members, Nikola, came up with an ingenious piece of software or membership. It’s being offered right now at the warrior forum special offers section. You’re notified of posts or threads that contain a keyword that you’re interested in. The membership is called Warrior Forum Alarm …just click on the link to check it out. There are some pretty good reviews. I got a chance to use the program and talk about a little in the post below.

================================================

Just wanted to leave a quick note.

I was one of the beta testers….unfortunately had some surgery that didn’t go so well and I’ve been in and out of the hospital for last couple of weeks. But here’s my thought’s so far….

I’ve been watching, learning and buying on this forum since 2004. There’s only a few people on this forum that I’ve learned produce excellent products and aren’t to be missed. Nikola is one of those who’s wso’s I never miss.

Not only are his products first class….he’s a first class marketer going above and beyond when it comes to customer service!

I would blindly recommend any of his products and services.

I’ve been pretty busy these days and I almost always miss out on wso’s that interest me, either I miss it all together or I get in when it’s at top dollar….ugh! Nikola’s Forum Alarm will put an end to that.

I’ll never miss any important conversations on offline marketing anymore!

I’m always looking for conversations about Xsitepro…. I sell some Xsitepro products and templates :)

I’ll keep on top of graphic related talk.

I’ll stay informed on current wordpress plugins!

Targetted research will become a buzzword with Forum Alarm. If you’re new to internet marketing, this could be an indespensible tool for you. One of the problems with newbies is information overload. You need to focus on a specific topic until you have a workable understanding of it. Use Forum Alarm to target a keyword….let’s say “wordpress” Now you can spend the next week or two getting the low down on every thread that talks about “wordpress”. A quick way to learn.

You might say that this, the Forum Alarm is “forum marketing” on steroids. Although you might not want to put your sales link or aff link in a forum post, you can edit your sig file to promote your own products or your own landing page for affiliate products. If you can’t see the value in that, then….you really need to study up a little more :) I’ve built a nice little list thorugh the years at the warrior forum and sold a small product for weekly sales by using the sig file at the warrior forum. I could be much more focused and spend a lot less time by watching posts relevant to my interests.

The warrior forum alarm is probably one of the most innovative products I’ve seen to date regarding the warrior forum, @avenuegirl said she felt like a spy….I think it’s more like a “peeping warrior” :)

I’ve learned so much from this forum, I had so many people help me that I’m just really greatful for the warrior forum. The information here is second to none. Maybe you’re new to Internet Marketing but know enough to write a book on SEO, but you need ideas. Your brain is stuck, you could try searching through the forum looking for seo posts…..or you could set the Forum Alarm to a couple of keywords for a week to “SEO” or “Search Engine Marketing” grab all the ideas and put them together a small report! You get the idea :)

You also might want to consider using Forum Alarm as a “niche verifier” ….I mean use it to determine the validity of the niche your investigating. Maybe you saw a post “wordpress tiled themes” ….you think you found the jackpot, so you set your alarm “wordpress tiled themes” and let it run for a week. Much to your surprise, a week goes by and nobody else is posting or commenting on “wordpress tiled themes”, so you just saved yourself a lot of time and cash because “wordpress tiled themes” is a dud :)

One more thought.

Use Forum Alarm to help you keep your content current in a blog. Can’t beat it for blog posts. I can set the Forum Alarm for “Xsitepro” and I have a steady source of ideas for blog posts. If the forum posts are questions, I can answer the question at the forum and use my answer for a new blog post….doesn’t get much easier.

I’m surprised Forum Alarm is limited to 100 users…..quite a small number, but those 100 will have a powerful tool.

Anyway, I highly recommend you at least give it the old “1 dollar” test run… I know you’ll enjoy it.

One thought for Nikola….it would be really sweet if you could somehow include the WarRoom !!!

@AvenueGirl and @Hackbridge…..Duh! I can’t believe I didn’t think to use “FREE”….I’m jumping on that right now !

Thanks again Nikola for letting me give Forum Alarm a whirl :) I think I’m going to scrape together some cash and grab the 5 year deal, can’t imagine it will ever be any cheaper.

Stages of Menopause Blog Added to My Autoposting Blog Network

IMG_1278

I just set up a blog in my health niche blog sites called Stages of Menopause. I’m working on setting up a network of my own blogs concerned with various subniches of the health niche. The idea is to create a network of blogs that has interconnections similar to that of a spiders web….the more blogs the better.

One of the easiest ways to develop a series of blogs is by purchasing a premade or preexisting blog.

You can find blogs for sale on ebay, look for auctions on blogs that fit your niche.

You can find blogs for sale on sites like digitalpoint.com or other marketing related websites and forums. Flipping blogs or flopping blogs has also become popular, just google “website flipping” or “blog flipping” and you’ll find sites and reports on how to start building and flipping your own blogs.

The first thing I do is to look at some of the forums to see what’s available (see below paragraph). After finding the appropriate niche, I look for some long tailed keywords using a tool like Micro Niche Finder or Keyword Research Pro. I develop a list of keywords and then I see which of those are available as a domain. Purchase the domain and then set it up as one of my domains on my reseller hosting, either Ultimate Marketing Center or Site5 Reseller Hosting ……both have been excellent with support second to none.

One of the places I constantly keep my eyes on is the Warrior Forum, in the WSO section you can find special offers for premade websites and blogs. Often times you can pick up a blog that is prepopulated with 10 to 20 PLR articles in a custom wordpress theme for less than $20. Remember, chances are the creator of the blog sold at least 10 of these sites and could be as many as 50 of these same sites on the internet. It really doesn’t matter how many are sold because 90% or more of those purchased won’t do anything with it, secondly those that do upload the site won’t make any changes to the site or articles at all. Here’s a list of things to do before and after purchasing one of these premade blogs.

  1. make sure the site comes with plr articles you can edit
  2. transferring wordpress blogs can be difficult, make sure the creator has a clear cut set up pdf or video, and make sure you’ll be able to contact them after you purchase in case you run into trouble during the installation…..ask these questions in the open, as in the forum environment….if the seller is short with you….don’t expect much help
  3. if you are planning to flipping the site make sure you have the proper rights or license
  4. change any and all affiliate links
  5. edit any optin forms to your own autoresponder
  6. find long tail keywords that correspond with the content of each article or blog post
  7. Rewrite the title of each blog post, be sure to include the long tail keyword…this is important!
  8. Rewrite each blog post so that it is unique, be sure to include the long tail keyword that was used in the title, in the blog post at least 3 times
  9. add an image to each blog post, make sure you use the long tail keyword in the name of the image and in the alt tag
  10. publish the post
  11. after publishing, go back and submit the blog post to social bookmarking and networking sites
  12. pick out 10 more long tail keywords and write or edit 10 more articles for blog posts and submit
  13. chances are you will have a very healthy piece of virtual real estate otherwise known as VRE

There’s much more you can do with these sites, but if that were all you did and you did this 5 or 10 times a month you would create a nice little network of blogs that would be valuable for all kinds of different purposes besides a monthly number of clicks from Goggle :)

You could drip feed articles if you have them.

You could build the blog further by any number of autoposting or autoblogging methods.

Bottom line, at least for me, is that finding a prebuilt blog saves me some time….If you find one in the niche you’re interested in, or want to develop it’s a quick way to get some content up quick. You can always develop it latter.

Of course it will take some time to get traffic to the site, I use Auto Social Poster plugin a well kept secret used by so called gurus for quick spidering, fast indexing and constant traffic, its well worth the price because your blog will get indexed and spidered quickly. I also use Slick Auto Poster and Article Stalker for autoposting full lenght keyword rich articles. Once established, I’ll add Google Adsense, Ebay, Amazon and add an optin form…..I might do only one of these or all of them some of these plugins allow you to use your keywords in the plugin to pull in relevant products or articles when autoblogging.

My goal is simple, get the site to produce $10 a month. I keep it simple. I know if I can get 10 sites to produce $10 a month, I’m making $100 a month. That’s not much money but it’s a very real number. Now all you need to do is expand your efforts, shoot for 100 sites a month making $10. Maybe it takes me a year to do that, but I’ll be making $1000 a month on autopilot. I know from experience some of those sites won’t make $10 a month…..some will make less, some will make a lot more!

Here’s an example of one of the sites I purchased on the warrior special offers forum, a blog on “menopause“. All I did was create a new header and install according to the authors instruction. Take a look at Stages of Menopause

Free Software at The Warrior Warroom

Do you have an interest in learning more about internet marketing?

If you aren’t a member at the warrior forum then please understand that you are missing the opportunity of a lifetime!

Once you get to the warrior forum you’ll find that it is subdivided into many sections. There’s a free section that is huge and you’ll be able to learn the wisdom of the ages….at least when it comes to things “internet” :0

You’ll also want to visit the Warrior Special Offers section, you can buy special reports, discounted software, websites, graphics and just about anything you can imagine when it comes to internet marketing. The WSO section is one of the Internet’s biggest best kept secrets, because you can not only buy great learning guides and tutorials but you can sell your own stuff as special offers. Let’s say you know how to do one thing really good….maybe you know how to write and can whip up a 10 pack of PLR articles in no time and the articles are some of the best quality on the internet…..well, you could offer the 10 articles as a warrior special offer and if your subject matter is in demand you could make yourself a nice little pile of cash!

The warrior forum is free, however, you do need to join with a small membership fee if you want to participate in the warrior special offers and the warrior War Room. Now here’s another secret. The War Room formally was kind of a secret section of the warrior forum….only serious internet marketers joined because it cost a few bucks. Well….it still costs to get in, however, the same fee allows you to participate in the warrior special offer forum so it’s kind of a 2 for one deal.

I’m not sure what the fee is….it’s either $20 or $30 dollars.

The War Room is a place where various marketers share some of their products…..for free…to the members. These aren’t junk products, they are some pretty awesome tools and reports. Sometimes these things are available for a limited time….others have been there since I joined over a year ago. So…don’t be a cheapo and join today and pick up some great stuff to help you start your journey into internet marketing or if you’ve been online for a while….make your efforts more fruitful!

Let me give you a for instance.

One of the members, named Tim, just put out an application that helps you write articles, this isn’t some $5 dollar application. It can spin, combine, rewrite….helps in just about every way possible so you can either rewrite your PLR articles or write new articles. Guess what? You can have this article writing software for free…but you must be a member at the Warrior War Room…..so why don’t you check it out today?

Here’s a quick video on the features of Tim’s software.

The Online Internet Business Opportunity Is It Real?

The biggest question that online internet business opportunity seekers have goes something like this “How can I tell if this is a legitimate offer or not?”

So first off, let’s just set you straight on one thing. Yes, you can make a full-time living (and up to much more) working from home at your own business. In order to develop a profitable business, you want to build it around your skills and interests. It can take a lot of time to make a significant amount of money but all you need to get started is a computer with reliable high-speed internet access. There are so many different opportunities online but you only need to master a few to be able to go into business for yourself helping others.

Another type of online internet business opportunity offers legitimate products to sell. But many of the companies that promote these opportunities exaggerate the income potential and understate the amount of time, effort, marketing dollars and skills needed to turn the opportunity into a profit-making business. You should consider looking at and visiting some of the more reliable internet marketing forums and ask questions about the income opportunities you’re looking at. Check out these forums:

The Warrior Forum
Earn1KaDay Forum
So you want to make sure that you investigate a business opportunity thoroughly before making a decision, especially if it requires a large investment. By investigating thoroughly, I mean learn all you can about the type of business and the company selling the opportunity. Do your own research. Do not rely soley on “facts”  or testimonials presented in the company’s sales literature. It always helps to do a google search.

Ask yourself some of the following questions and look for the answers:

Who will buy the product or service?

How much will your target market pay for the product or service?

How much will it cost you to find customers and how long will it take?

How much profit will you make for each sale?

How many products or services will you have to sell to pay back the cost of buying into the opportunity?

What technical knowledge do you really need to make money in this field of business?

This is very important . . .What kind of reputation does the company selling the opportunity have. Find out if they’ve had complaints filed against them and, if so, how they were dealt with. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) web site can help with this at http://www.ftc.gov. Call the District Attorney’s office and the Better Business Bureau in the city the opportunity company is located in and ask what information they have about the company.

If you can, talk to other people who have already bought the opportunity and ask them for feedback. Remember that information is power – the more you can find out, the better decision you will be able to make. And once you do have all your answers, you will be very excited to join an opportunity that fits everything you are looking for!

Remember, there are many, many, many different forms and methods of building an online business. Finding the niche that suits you could take a while, however, if you follow your passion, I’m sure you’ll find something you can do to help supplement or replace your existing income!

And last but not least, take your time before making a final decision. Make sure that your future online internet business opportunity fits your budget, your personal work habits, likes and dislikes and your skills.

Niche Marketing Tips for Successful Internet Marketing

Would you believe that it is easy to find a niche that can bring internet marketing success if you know where to look?  There is competition everywhere and if you are not doing things the proper way you will find yourself out in the cold and not able to benefit from the power of the internet marketing world. No matter how difficult it may seem, if you can follow some simple guidelines, you will find the competitive edge that is required for success. Here’s your first niche marketing tip, learn from others! Be careful though, so many marketers today have just jumped online and will parrot anything and everything they hear. These jokers have no personal experience you they want you to join their marketing lists so they can ttm-dvdpluscase250blast you day after day with one promotion after another! Before you trust someone, do a Google search on their name to see how long they’ve been around. Ask around different internet marketing forums like the Warrior Forum or Earn1Kaday to see if anyone has heard of this person. Stick with names like Jack Humphrey, Howie Schwartz or Jimmy D Brown, these guys are the superstars of Internet Marketing. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen to someone who isn’t highly visible….a good example would be a guy like Ed Chiasson, he can exploit a niche like no other and his tools are second to none! His program, Article Stalker, provides keyword rich content that is absolutely free and this content is needed  to keep visitors coming to your blogs and sites. However,  I highly recommend the Earn1Kaday membership/forum…. a good place to start off,  where you can learn many different business models and niches for  making money online.

The first thing that you need to do in order to be successful is to do a thorough search for a niche. There are many ways of finding a profitable niche, Niche Profit Classroom uses Amazon.com in a very effective way to determine the viability of a new niche. In fact the NPC method is so unique and but simple that you’ll wonder why you never thought of it! If I could give one niche marketing tip, I’d say, to pay attention to the numbers….numbers do not lie! Anyway, researching a particular idea can be accomplished through a variety of sources. There are books with wonderful ideas, past experience to guide you, and brainstorming some ideas and thoughts. These are just a few of the many different methods. One of the best sources however, is the internet itself and knowing how to use the information Google makes available.

Another Niche Marketing Tip involves the availability of search engines, article directories, and forums because you can maximize your results in the shortest amount of time possible. These tools can make the research process easy and efficient for you. You need to have at least some idea of what you are looking for and utilizing these tools can be invaluable to broadening your horizons and ideas.

Once you have done your research and screened the available niches, you need to pick the one that is most suitable for you. When you are choosing your niche, find one that you are passionate about, something that has meaning to you. This is an extremely important part of the decision. Passion is what makes you work on your project for hours and hours and always leaves you wanting more from it. Being passionate about your work gives you the ability to understand the whole market.

Passion is perhaps the greatest niche marketing tip because it puts you on a constant quest for every piece of knowledge that is available in your chosen field. The knowledge that you gain gives you a powerful edge over the competition. Your passion will also give your niche a personal touch. Every single person is passionate about different things. There are things that will work for some business people and not others. There should be a strong bond between you and your niche that cannot be destroyed by anyone or anything.

Another thing to keep in mind is that no one should ever try to reinvent things that are already perfected and working. There are a lot of people that try this and fail. They are able to find a niche that has great success and then they try to follow the exact steps with the false sense that this will lead them to financial freedom. It is nearly impossible to copy a niche that has had success in the past. Not having the ability to copy a niche is not saying that people cannot benefit from the success of these niches.

The ultimate niche marketing tip is the advice and encouragement for continual investment in your education….things change quick on the internet and you need to purchase and invest in your continual education. Follow those who are successful. A program like Niche Profit Classroom gives you all the tools needed define and discover a profitable niche. Earn1Kaday has a whole section of their forum dedicated to creating mini money sites which target specific profitable niche markets. In fact, Niche Profit Classroom provides every member with 2 complete niche packages a month, all the research is done, a high quality product is provided along with a special wordpress niche oriented theme. I’m so impressed with Niche Profit Classroom I’m going to keep my membership! The best way to go about this is to create a niche that works within the successful niches. There are endless possibilities in these niches if you just put some effort into it and use your imagination.

Dreamweaver too complicated?, Go Live and Frontpage too steep a learning curve?

XSitePro is a new website design package that we have reviewed to create entire web sites, not just individual pages, and optimize them
I think that some web design packages have too steep a learning curve. That?s why I want to tell you about a product that I?ve just reviewed called XSitePro. Here is a brief summary, and you can see the full review by using the link indicated at the end of this article.

I was looking for something more versatile than a lot of the lower end website building software such as Web Easy Pro, and Web Plus, yet with a good deal of the functionality of the higher end products such as Dreamweaver and Frontpage. As I needed to start quickly I didn?t want the steep learning curve that these higher end products demanded.

Quite by accident I came across XSitePro. At first I was nearly dissuaded from taking it further, because I was presented with a one-page sales website which the software authors put out.

Personally, having spent a great deal of time, recently, researching web products, the one page sales letters deter me from going any further, as I have subscribed to several, and always been disappointed. I also dislike parting with money before I ?touch and feel? a product, and particularly like to download a fifteen or thirty day demo, which was just not available.

Erring on the side of caution I posted a request on the Warrior forum, and asked for advice as to which website development software I should opt for. More replies were positive about XSitePro than any other, so I subscribed and downloaded the software, putting faith in the promise of a 365 day refund.


Dreamweaver CS4

I was certainly not disappointed and initially completed the tutorial, where I constructed a ten page website in around 11/2 hours. You can view the website completed in the tutorial by going to the web page indicated at the end of this article.

XSitePro is feature rich and I have picked out my 12 favorits.

XSitePro optimizes each page to rank well with the search engines and gives suggestions as to what tasks you need to carry out, to bring this about.

The ?Help? functionality is very good with on-screen pages supported by ?Index? and ?Search? facilities. There is ?Context Sensitive Help? throughout providing immediate help relating to the function you are currently performing. ?Online Help? accesses a ?Knowledgebase? of frequently asked questions with the ability to ?Submit a Ticket? if the answer is not found.

Using a ?Template? principle it is possible to make amendment to all pages by making alterations to the template. Therefore if you want to change text, site colours, logos etc. on all pages, this is easily achieved.

The Multi-Page Creation Wizard provides a quick and easy way of creating the infrastructure of a new site, or adding whole new branches to the infrastructure of an existing site.

You can simplify your web creation tasks using the valuable To Do Report automatically produced by XSitePro. The software produces a checklist of suggested actions still needed for each page so you never forget to carry out essential tasks.

Two mouse clicks will introduce Google Adsense ads to your web pages bringing about another income stream.

Powerful functionality immediately available which includes pop-ups, pop-ins, link pages, automatic sitemap, page import, scripts, redirect pages and much more.

The software comes with 163 website templates included, making website creation even faster and easier.

Built-in Article and Product pages which are of considerable benefit to internet marketers.

No knowledge of HTML needed, making it also a beginners tool. If you can use Microsoft Word, or similar then XSitePro is for you.

Print out an incredibly detailed report that tells you exactly what you need to do to each of your pages, which means you can make sure that all your pages are exactly right before you publish them to the Internet.

Easily add a links page to your site that looks great and is easy to update, which means you can benefit from a reciprocal linking campaign (i.e. exchanging links with other sites).

In summary we found it to be easy to learn, intuitive and we were able to produce results fast.
