Need Some Inspiration

Need Some Inspiration?

I don't know about you, but I find this Internet Marketing business to be a lonely one. When you spend hours a day sitting in front of your screen with no interaction with people it can make you stir crazy.

In my offline working life, I always enjoyed bouncing ideas off of my co-workers, or just having a quick gab to shake the cobwebs out. Working in front of the computer screen all day leaves me drained. Don't get me wrong, I know that all of this concenrated hard work will pay off someday. It's just sometimes hard to feel that you are getting anywhere.

I feed off of the energy of others around me. Fortunately I have found a few Marketers who make me laugh or give me encouragement by just saying "hang in there, you are moving in the right direction".

Once in awhile I come across something that just super-charges me. It is a video circulating around done by John Reese. In case you are not familiar with John, he is a young, dynamic, internet marketing multi-millioniare.

The video will show you how John Reese generated over 18 million site visits in one year. This traffic came from free search engine rankings. He doesn't give you the secrets on how he achieved this, you have to sign up for his monthly report.

I found it was the boost that I needed to re-focus and start to apply the things that I have been learning over the past three months. I may never make anywhere near the money that he talks about in this video, but I certainly would be happy with 1/100th of the pot, who wouldn't. lol!

He is also the author of the monthly published Reese Report. I am not on his mailing list as I can't afford the monthly membership fee at this point in my career. One of my objectives is to one day be on his list but in the meantime I thought that you might like a little inspiration.

Here is the link:
By the way, I make nothing by passing this along.

Thanks for stopping in, I wil leave you with this final thought:

Blogging for Dollars Review

Product Review:

"Blogging For Dollars" By Derek Gehl and The Internet Marketing Center

While going through Derek Gehl's new "Blogging For Dollars" system, I was amazed just how powerful blogs really are. The amount of traffic you can drive to your website with a blog is impressive!

If you don't have a blog yet, NOW is definitely the time to start one!

And if you want to turn that blog into a huge success, Derek and his team have invested over $79,583.28 in developing and testing his new system, "Blogging For Dollars," and...

... Their test results were truly shocking!

Some of Derek's clients and members of his team were scooping up handfuls of #1 rankings in the search engines -- for HIGHLY competitive terms -- without hiring an expensive SEO specialist.

And I'm positive that anyone can secure a top 10 position in the search engines using the advanced blogging techniques explained in this system!

Plus, by having a blog, you can drive swarms of traffic to your website, explode your sales and profits...

... OR add new streams of revenue to your existing business!

But, what I like most about this system is that it's for both advanced users and it's totally newbie friendly at the same time.

In fact, "Blogging For Dollars" lays out a simple plan for starting your very FIRST online business using blogs, and teaches you how to set up your FIRST blog in 45 seconds... 5 minutes if you're slow!

Here's a tiny sample of what you'll learn:

  • How to use blogs to dramatically increase your website traffic -- and add 1,000's of EXTRA dollars to your bottom line!

  • How to rank #1 in Google, Yahoo!, and MSN -- for the keywords MOST searched by your target audience!

  • How Derek's team pushed a webpage to a #2 ranking in Google for a highly competitive keyphrase -- with less than 60 minutes' effort! (And why we saw traffic and sales results in less than 14 days!)

  • Which 3 critical steps you MUST follow to catapult your website to the TOP of the search engine rankings -- for any keyword you choose!

  • How to Attract 400% more repeat traffic than your static webpage! Since blogs take just seconds to update (from ANYWHERE in the world), it's easy to draw visitors back again and again with fresh news and postings!

... And MUCH more!

And since blogging is the biggest trend to hit the Internet in the last 10 years, there's more opportunity to profit from it right now than there ever will be. My prediction is we won't see another chance like this for at least another 10 years... Which means the time to act is now!

If you want to get in on the action, and maximize your blogging profits quickly, then I highly recommend you take a look Derek Gehl's new system right away.

"Blogging For Dollars" comes with a 96-minute instructional DVD, and an easy-to-follow guidebook containing 115 pages of every single detailed technique and strategy for generating MASSIVE profits from any blog!

The reason for the urgency is that the information in this product is for right-now before the market becomes saturated and the rules of the game change.

I can tell you that I own several of the Internet Marketing Centers' products and they are quite simply outstanding. Here is a link to one of their marketing courses, "Insiders Secrets" to Marketing your Business on the Internet. .

It is considered the difinitive reference resource that is a must for your library. I can tell you from first had experience my pages are dog-earred. If you have been around for awhile then you will realize that even some of the top guru's own this program.

I will leave you with this final thought:

Internet Marketing for Newbies - A Series of Articles Written from a Newbies Perspective

Free Affiliate Programs

The easiest way to make money online is thru free affiliate marketing. People often wonder how to start making money online. They have no product, no website and most of all they are on a shoe-string budget. This doesn't leave the option to create a product as this will cost a few hundred dollars at the very least. The best option if you are in this same situation is to become an affiliate marketer.

For anyone who doesn't know, an affiliate marketer is someone who promotes other people's products and takes a commission on every sale they generate. You don't have to pay upfront and then sell the product on and the best part about it is that you don't have any customer service to deal with.

Many affiliate marketers promote products using pay per click advertising also known as PPC. This is where you bid on Google, Yahoo and other search engines and your ad is placed on there pages. You get to pick which keywords your ad will show up for and in all it is a great way to drive traffic to a website. The only problem with the PPC method is that it can become very expensive, running up bills in the thousands of dollars. It's not really suitable for people on a shoe string budget.

I personally like to drive traffic to my affiliate sites for free. I do this using blogs and you can find out how you can do the same by clicking here:

One of the keys to success with affiliate marketing is to select good free affiliate programs. Here are the elements of a great affiliate program and what you should look out for:

.1) You are getting paid a good commission. You should at least be getting 50% depending on the affiliate program. I avoid affiliate program that only pay a measly 5% or so as if I'm driving the visitors to the site then I should be getting well paid.

2) The website converts visitors into buyers. This is the conversion ratio and it should be at least 1% meaning that out of every one hundred visitors they make one sale. There are many affiliate programs out there that convert over 5% which becomes very profitable.

3) The product needs to be good. It is no use to you if the product is refunded and your commission is lost. A good product will only have a very small percentage of refunds so check out reviews etc.

4) Another main factor of a good affiliate program is that they provide the tools for you to succeed. They should give you the choice to use ready designed banners and email promotions already written for you that can just be personalized. This will save you a ton of time.

If you want more information on selecting affiliate programs and becoming a super affiliate then please check out this excellent resource:

I personally own this e-book. It is brand new, hot off the presses as they say. It is light at only 40+ pages but you will find that it is excellent value for the money. It has been personally recommended by several gurus including Michael Green and Marc Hendrik. I personally have some reservations concerning the chapter on creating back links and would not use these methods myself. It certainly comes close to blog spamming. Let me know if you agree with my comments.

Of course, any informational e-book is only as good as the effort that you are willing to put into it. Effort In = Rewards Out.

It will take you you step by step through everything you need to know about setting up your own blog and making money through free affiliate programs.
