Happy New Years to all my readers and friends! Sorry if I haven’t been posting pretty much at all these days, been really busy with actual affiliate marketing stuff so haven’t had time to blog.
One of the key routes potential customers can take to find your business web site and ultimately your ebook(s) is via the search engines and an effective domain name can play a large part in convincing them to click on the search results that lead to your site.
A domain is your web site’s address on the Internet. Imagine the confusion if all the major high street stores didn’t have names or addresses, how would you find them or know what they sold for that matter. Just like a bricks and mortar store, your web site needs a name or a brand, a domain name that allows people to identify what you do and makes it easy for them to remember where to go next time they want to visit.
As an affiliate that is smart and wants to promote internationally, it’s very hard to see the offers when your based in the USA. There are free proxies online, but if you’ve tried them than you know that they are super slow and highly unreliable!
I got into thinking about ‘making money online’ about 7 years ago. Thats when I had zero assets online and I was starting from scratch. Of course, I had no idea at that time that I would make close to a cool million. Anyhow, after browsing and looking around, I decided to give Forex Trading a go. It seemed to be a good way to make money. Just sit at home, watch charts on your computer and download the money. You don’t even have to step out of the house. Needless to say, it appealed to me.
I bet you’re thinking I made my money from trading. You’d be wrong. After playing the markets for a while, I realized that there were many traders asking question on trading forums. Most of the new traders were looking for systems. So I sat down and devised a few systems and put it into a book form. I went back to the forum and asked if anyone would like to buy it. I got tons response. I sold each copy for just $10.
These days its super hard to convert visitors into conversions as ever before. In the early days of internet marketing, it was much easier as people were less tech savvy than the average user today, so what are some options for you to convert as many visitors as possible into sales or leads for your business?
The answer is simple! Use a wordpres GEO targeting script to do it! Now this is highly complicated and requires tons of PHP and Coding scripts, however, a good friend of mine, Keith, finally released a easy to use wordpress plugin! Before, I was using his script that he had made, however, it was still pretty complicated and tedious to do. Now he finally released a wordpress plugin that makes it super easy to install and configure!
If you have been stuck at cranking, try this “reversed” approach. Now you are not limited by the offers. You are liberated from the limited thinking posed by the offer itself. Now you can find opportunities first, then use offers to monetize the opportunities. Let me open your mind a little more with a simple but powerful trick:
Next time when you are going to watch TV, take a notepad with you. Take a note of whats hot on the news (new government policy, celebrity news, local events), take a note of all kinds of advertisements (weight loss, money making, coupons, promotions, pay close attention to those 30-minute-long informationals, those are my favorite TV programmes), take a note of domain names if any are ever mentioned. If you do this for one day, you are going to have 10 pages of keywords you can use to promote your own campaigns.
The keywords for your campaigns can be an event, can be a company name, can be a domain name, can be a coupon code. Do you get it? What happens is people see the TV programme, then they go back to their computer to Google more information about it. Who are these people? Buyers!
No doubt you know what is meant by banner ads; you see them on just about every web page on the internet today and millions of people make money online with them. There are many different ways of producing banners and of placing them on websites, and the cost of banner advertising will go up or down depending upon how they’re created and how they’re placed.
Because a lot of affiliate marketers and business owners use banner ads, it’s obvious that they offer some results. After all, if they didn’t result in real customers and real business for a website, no one would have tried them! For yourself and your website, you may wonder if the cost of banner advertising is worth the price you would pay when compared to the number of visitors you may get and the increase in business as well.
Let’s take a look at what to consider when it comes to the cost of banner advertising and the typical results you get from these ads as well. Remember that there is nothing assured but these few factors can help point you in the right direction as to your choice when it comes to website advertising.
If you haven’t gotten involved in email marketing yet, then you are missing out on some amazing profits. As with any system, you can always improve for best results. Here are some email marketing tips to help you see those profits come flying in.
Increasing Your Opt-in Conversion Rates
As always, you want to give your readers something of great value. This is no different when you want them to sign up for your email marketing campaign. You could offer a free report about the niche you are involved in, a two part video series but only show them the first video, or a special promotion to one of your great products, all if they just give you their email.
Keep the opt-in form ‘above the fold’. In other words, keep it where they can see it without having to scroll down the page. This makes the process as easy as possible for them to be a part of your list. It helps increase your conversions rate tremendously.
Test out adding an entrance or exit pop-up form. Adding simple scripts that include this feature allow you another chance to capture that email. This can be extremely helpful just in case they didn’t see the form or if they got distracted by some other great information you had on the site.
Just how much would you declare you already know about banner advertising? If you’re answer is not enough, you certainly wouldn’t be on your own. Nearly everyone knows only the fact that banner advertising is what they see on the internet, blinking at the very top or on the side panels of websites.
What a lot of people really wish to know about banner advertising is whether it works. In some cases you don’t need to pay for a banner advertisement if you exchange those ads with another site, but in most cases you need to purchase all parts of its web presence. With everyone watching their advertising dollars these days, the questions about banner advertising and its effectiveness are appropriate.
Making use of pay per click banner advertising is a preferred choice among webmasters nowadays as it can boost your site’s traffic without having to do a great deal of work. You can make a banner of your own if you have the necessary software; a banner don’t need animation or flash but can be a simple plain picture for your to make money online.
Furthermore, once a banner is designed and situated within a certain genre it normally appears on its own without you having to do anything extra. Most companies that permits pay per click banner advertising will have your banner exchanged with others in their company; you just need to keep a banner running in your site to make in run on another as well…
When you start out in affiliate marketing, one thing you should know is that everything is negotiable. Payouts are almost always set to a low level and as you begin to grow your revenue, don’t be afraid to ask your manager or affiliate network contact for an increase in pay. Sometimes it will happen, sometimes not. If you’re open and tell them you’re having a hard time keeping an offer profitable for example, they generally come back with a bump in payment or suggest another offer that might work better for you. Tip: When negotiating try not to make the negotiations about you.
If you complain and whine, networks are less likely to work with you. Instead saying something like, “Hey, I really want to keep running X offer with you but I’m having a lot of troubles keeping it profitable. Is there anything you can do to help? Thanks.” This keeps the focus back on the network a bit more than just making it entirely about you. Being in a network is essentially a partnership so you want to make sure you work with them and not against them…
