Internet Explorer Problems May Expose Vital Information

There is has been a defect found in all versions of Microsofts Internet Explorer browser. If you are someone like me who spends the majority of my time online, this is really major. Apparently the problem has spread to at least 2 million people worldwide.

The scary part about the Internet Explorer problem is that it has been going on for the past six days is that there is no way to protect yourself against it. The problem has nothing to do with illegal phishing or any type of solicitation by internet scammers. The characteristic of the Internet Explorer problems is that the browser unexpectedly closes and leaves your vital information exposed.

Internet Explorer is the most used browser of choice for the majority of internet users. So these browser problems is a massive problem that can affect many users. So far the reports have primarily been reported in China. The majority of the complaints are from the stealing of passwords from popular online games.

Microsoft has offered some troubleshooting advice to handling these unfortunate internet explorer problems, but someone who is not very computer tech illiterate like myself, my advice would be to switch over to Mozilla Firefox.

I hope that you have been able to avoid this unfortunate situation. I am especially interested in internet browser problems because I just recently rectified a situation where my email address was hijacked and cause me a many headaches.

Internet Scammers Are Now Using Social Networking Sites

For all my readers that have not seen a new post from me for a while, I want to offer my apologies. It is not because I was being lazy; I was a victim of fraud. Someone hijacked my email address through one the social networks and managed to change my password, secret question, and my alternative email address.

It was a very unnerving experience, I was actually locked out of my account for a total of 5 weeks. It seemed like that Google's security measures were more effective for keeping me from retrieving my account than it was for protecting it. The worse part was that all my internet business was tied to my Gmail account: Gmail, Blogger, Adsense, and the big one Adwords.

I believed that the hijack occurred on Facebook. It happen simple enough, someone solicited me for a JV and I accepted. To make communications better we exchanged emails and then I was sent a phishing link which was designed to access my computer. I cannot express enough how much this simple mistake cost me mentally,time wise and financially.

I have since decided to exercise extreme caution when attempting to network on the internet. Here are few precautions that I would like to share with you to avoid scammers in these social networking sites.

1. Do not use your email in your profile, you can always retrieve your messages directly from the social networking websites inbox.

2. Do not exchange email with anyone until you have verified who they are and if their business is legitimate. In fact I would go as far as to do a reverse phone search on them.

3. Make sure that your computer is equipped with a good virus protection, Spyware and Registry cleaner...Trust me it is well worth the investment.

4. Be careful of the announcements on your profile page that informs that someone has posted your pictures all over the internet.

5. Do not click on any link that you do not recognize or cannot read as a word. If you click on a link by mistake, do not follow the link off the social networking site.

6. Use Mozilla Firefox and make sure that all your security systems are ON. I switched my other browser due to Internet Explorer problems.

7. Do not have the same password and security questions...etc for the all your accounts with Google or any other major company that you have several different accounts with. The results are if someone hijacks your account, they have access to all your business.

8. Do not save your secret passwords in your email account.

These measures may seem excessive, but avoiding the headaches and loss of revenues that scammers may cost is priceless.

How To Avoid Duplicate Content With The Major Search Engines

Article marketing is a great way to generate quality free backlinks and increase your page rank with the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and MSN. The only setback is the dreaded duplicate content issue that loom so large in the back of every marketers mind.

For example if you write a great informative,keyword rich article and submit it to let's say, fifty article directories, you will have created the possibilities of getting thousands of backlinks. In case you didn't know, articles directories distribute your articles to several other sources and that's how you can create so many backlinks.

The problem of duplicate content rears it's puny little head when you check your statistics and see 7 listings in Google with the same article. The good news is that your backlinks are safe and you will get credit for them. The bad news is that your backlinks will not be as relevant due to the duplicate content.

To avoid the duplicate content issue, there a few thing you can do to increase the relevancy of your backlinks. One is to submit your articles to article submitting services that circulate your articles to hundreds of directories at one time. Google does not penalize you if you article gives credit to the article directory that circulates your article. So instead of submitting to 50 directories, you can submit to 2 to 3 of these services which will minimize the amount of articles you have published without giving credit to another directory.

There are few article directories that provide this service. Some of them even offer a creative way to spin your articles for even more security from the duplicate content bug. These directories are as follows: Isnare, Article Submission Service, and Free Traffic System.

When you look at it, it all makes sense. After all, if someone wants to print your article on their website, that means that your must be providing good content.

How To Build A Responsive List Using The List Auction

The list auction is a new list building program with a twist. Instead of your traditional viral list building program, The List Auction not only a list builder, it is also an additional income stream. There are multiple ways to earn with The List Auction. You can earn from the one time offer, the monthly residual income, or from auctioning your unused credits.

If you accept the one time offer and join The List Auction as a gold member, you will be able to mail to a responsive list of 5500 members twice a week. The traffic exchanges are a great place to market you list auction squeeze page to grow you list. The conversion rates using the squeeze page is very high. Using a multi tabbed browser like Mozzilla to surf multiple exchanges will help you generate a minimum of 1000 hits a day to your squeeze page if you surf 2 hours per day.

Another strategy that I use to build a responsive list using The List Auction is free advertising sites. Since The List Auction allows free members to earn commission on referral sales also, it has a high conversion rate in these free advertising sites.

The final strategy I use to promote The List Auction is another list builder called List Joe. List Joe is also a downline builder for nine other list builders. Promoting List Joe will not only promote The List Auction, you can also build your list with 9 list builders at one time. There is also a one time offer with List Joe that is similar to The List Auction.

Using these techniques will help you to build a responsive list with The List Auction and several other list builders while earning a residual income. With the residual income provided by these viral responsive list builders, you can promote them as a primary source of income.

Free PPC Programs: Blog Software Delivers Free PPC Advertising

PPC advertising is a well known advertising method for generating quality targeted traffic to your website. Google is of course the most effective form of PPC advertising. For internet marketers starting out however, I do not recommend jumping into buying PPC ads until a clear understanding of how to market using PPC advertising is established.

While browsing the internet recently, I discovered a new free advertising method that offers something similar to PPC advertising. This blog software delivers free PPC ads through an extremely busy blog. Every week you will receive an ezine newsletter with new internet marketing tools and advice. Included in the ezine is free clickable advertising to members sites.

The program I am speaking of is called Leads Leap. Leads Lead uses the power of a viral blog to post adverts, which it delivers directly to 25,000 members and growing weekly. The Leads Leap concept is similar to Google PPC ads that you see in your Gmail account. Members of Leads Leap are credited views by clicking on other members ads or by referring others to the program. This ensures that your ads are clicked on without any cost to you.

In addition to getting free PPC advertising through Leads Leap’s busy blog network, you will also be using the power of exponential growth to build your leads list. Your will get credit for every referral your recruits generate up to 10 levels deep. Four referrals can grow to 1,398,100 leads if everyone you recruit reduplicates your process.

Out of all the free PPC programs on the internet, I have not experience one that provides an information filled blog for the purpose of PPC advertising. This program is unique and can be an effective way of growing your business. Lead Leaps free PPC program not only delivers traffic to your website, but It helps build your leads list without clogging your email. The only emails you receive are 1 or 2 blog updates weekly.

How To Get Resell Rights To 100 Digital Products For $10

Obtaining resell rights for products to resell can be a legitimate way for newbies or even experience marketers to take control of their internet business. One of the many advantages of having that master resell rights is that you can keep 100% of the profit.

Finding the right products that are in high demand will probably be the most challenging when seaching for products to resell. Although Clickbank, PayDotCom are great for affiliate products where you can keep up to 75% of the profit, they don’t compare to getting resell rights and keeping 100% of the profit.

When I was searching for a product to resell I actually found several, but since I was new to internet marketing, my choices were not that great. You need to be able to locate the niche products that your market is searching for. Without the right products to resell, you will simply be wasting time. After many unsuccessful attempts to find products to sell that were high in demand and low on competition, I simply redirected my efforts to MLM Marketing.

It was quite ironic what happen next, through my search to find a great MLM opportunity, I ran into “The Coffee House Letter”. After reading this controversial letter I decided to join a GPT opportunity (EZ Wealth Solution). The funny thing is, not only did EZ Wealh Solution provide me with the great network marketing opportunity, I actually solved my search for resell right products to sell. In their first level of the program, which your sponsor pays for you, I got access to 100 digital products to sell for only $10.

What I like most about having access to so many products is that I can experiment with several different products to find which ones sell the best. One last thing, if you decide to find niche products to resell, make sure you have a good webhost. You will a web host that allow for unlimited subdomains to host your mini sites.

Free PPC: Get Free Pay Per Click Advertising For Life

Who says that you must pay for PPC in order to see great results from you advertising campaigns? Hang with me if you will, because today I’m not only going to show how to get FREE PPC advertising, I’m going to show how to get FREE PPC advertising from two different sources.

The first source is a program called Leads Leap. This program is extremely viral because your ads will circulate in a blog that is distributed to thousands of members weekly. Your PPC ads will be delivered to members of Leads Leap through email weekly. You will also receive advertising throughout the network whenever members visit the blog manually. You receive credits whenever you view other members ads, so in retrospect that guarantees that your ads will also get viewed. If you would like to receive FREE PPC advertising without viewing ads, you can choose to upgrade or refer at least 20 people to the program. Referring 20 people will guarantee you 500 FREE PPC views per month.

The other program is actually the largest traffic exchange on the internet. Traffic Swarm has been around forever. Traffic Swarm has over 150,000 thousands members, which is very powerful if you are trying to get maximum exposure. The difference between Traffic Swarm and other traffic exchanges is that you ads are guaranteed to be viewed. Before you can view an ad with Traffic Swarm you must click on an advert. Also you ads open in a separate window so surfers can not use a multi tabbed browser, which again insures you ads will get viewed. You can earned FREE PPC credits by viewing ads, upgrading to pro, or referring members.

Leads Leap and Traffic Swarm are two very responsive FREE PPC advertising programs that are very effective. Both programs have a upgrade option that will supercharge you results. I recommend joining the free programs to build your referrals first, then upgrading so you can receive the residual income opportunity that both programs offer.
Imagine that, FREE PPC advertising that pays you!

How To Succeed In An Industry With A 97% Failure Rate

Let’s keep it real, internet marketing is not for the weak of heart. It takes a special individual to succeed in an industry with a 97% failure rate. I know when you read those sales pages with all the promises of easy wealth you get pumped up. Although it is all right to have dreams, I just want you to realize that there is plenty of work involved in order to reach success in network marketing.

The formula to achieving success in an industry with a failure rate of 97% rate is hard work, perseverance, networking and confidence. Anything the mind can conceive it can achieve. Being confident gives you the ability to make move forward with your plans without fear. Perseverance gets you through the days when everything goes wrong. Hard work will establish a solid foundation. Networking will help you duplicate and expand your business Through positive interactions from likeminded individuals.

Before you can put all these attributes to work, you must tackle some of the myths that you will have to deal with on a day to day basis.

Myth#1: You will reach success overnight
Myth#2: You get 3 people that get 3 people that get 3 people…It’s simple
Myth#3: You won’t have to spend any money
Myth#4: You ads can convert at a 70% rate
Myth#5: You can set it and forget it

The first obstacle you will have to conquer is how to market on the internet. Although traffic is the lifeblood to you success in the game, there is a fine line between good marketing and spamming. Marketing will be nearly 100 percent of your daily regimen. You will need to dedicate at least 4 hours of your day to you home based business. Expect a minimum of 3 months before you start realizing any success.

The concept of you get 3 people that get 3 people and so on is false because you are in an industry with a 97% failure rate. If you do the math, you will realize that to get 3 people, you will need to recruit 100. There is possibility that the first 3 people you recruit might be motivated individuals, but chances are they won’t be. If you prepare for the worse than you will be prepared to deal with success.

There are several great free advertising programs on the net that get results but for the most part they are designed to tease you into spending. Most of the free advertising sites that work have a more enticing upgrade option. The thing is if you are achieving success with the free program, why not upgrade? Don’t fool yourself, you will definitely need to spend some money on advertising or you will not succeed. I suggest you start off with the free advertising option to learn how to market on the internet.

Another stretch of the truth is that you ads will convert on a 70 percent rate. The more accurate rate is more like 1 to 5 percent. I am sorry to bust your bubble, but if you want a 10 sales a day, you will have to drive 1000 targeted visitors to you website daily. Targeted visitors are visitors that visit your site because of some kind of interest in your products. Traffic exchanges are not considered to be targeted traffic.

The set and forget it strategy is also false because even though there are some programs out there that are very viral, you have to put the time in the set them. Once the systems are set up, you will then have to spend time to manage your autopilot system. Not to mention the fact that the industry is always changing so set it and forget may not work.

Success on the net has very little to do with your experience, education or financial status. Success on the net has everything to do with you, your marketing strategy and your dedication to success.

All of a sudden, the opportunity that you had previously never heard of just starting popping up everywhere. The first first reaction is to feel like maybe that your secret opportunity is too saturated and that you won’t succeed. That’s what I started to feel with my money gifting program EZ Wealth Solution, but the difference is with the power of 3 pay it forward system you only need 3 referrals to start creating easy daily cash.

The money gifting programs are popular, but to my surprise, my business started flourishing before I had the chance to get frustrated. Even with their increasing popularity, cash leverage systems have a foundation that is solid. After taking the free tour with EZ Wealth Solution and studying their compensation plan, I realize that I could really create a nice residual income with the money gifting concept.

Money gifting programs are very much unlike your traditional MLM opportunity. There is no need to spend years building a downline in order to create a decent residual income. The new GPT 1up and 2 up structure gives money gifting programs the ability to provide members the “Get Paid Today’ option. Most money gifting programs provide payment options either through Fed EX, UPS or directly to your Alert Pay account daily such as EZ Wealth Solution. In addition to the faster turn around on the commission payments, money gifting programs commission amounts are considerably higher.

The advantages with using the money gifting programs 1up 2up system is better explain in the videos that is provided by EZ Wealth Solution. There is also a must read letter called “The Coffee House Letter’. By the time you watch the very informational videos along with the painful truth delivered by the “Coffee House Letter”, you will be convinced that money gifting is the wave of the future. You can get access to the videos and letter by taking a FREE TOUR of EZ Wealth Solution.

Review Of Linkscout

What's the biggest problem do you think you will encounter with marketing? Take your time because there are several; For me it was marketing. I was taken by the lure of fast cash and the "it's so easy" speech. I signed up for every program that promised fast success. Then one day it occured to me, How was I going to market these multiple opportunities? I had no idea where to start and I was terrified to spend money because I did not really know exactly what worked. I spent a grip navigating my way through the internet jungle, I spent many months checking my emails hoping to see the words "You have referred a new member to". It took me six months to finally find an advertising tool that suited all my needs as a marketer, today I am going to review Linkscout.

Linkscout is free viral advertising website that allows members to advertise all their opportunities with their very own advertising suite. The advantages of your own advertising suite is you only have to advertise one website to promote all your home business ventures. Linkscout also provides other tools to enhance your marketing experience, I am not able to list all the tool in just one blog, but I will list a few just to give you an idea.

What Do You Get With Your Linkscout Suite?
• Your own Featured Links Page to Advertise your Websites on over 41,000 Sites!
• Your own Linkscout Link Exchange Page.
• Your own Linkscout Matrix Replicator Page.
• Your own keyword targeted Search Engine.
• Your Own Affiliate Programs Directory with 3 Programs!
• Post Unlimited Website Listings to your Search Engine.
• Post Unlimited Opinions for your Website Listings to Attract attention!
• NO SPAM will ever be sent to you, the only emails you will receive is from Linkscout Admin

Linkscout also has a viral capabilty, everyone you refer as a free member will also advertise your programs. New members can advertise all their programs but until they upgrade to a pro member your programs will also appear on the bottom of their page. What that means is if you refer a 1000 members that do not upgrade to a pro membership, you will have your ads displaying on 1000 pages. When they adverise their Linkscout suite, they will also be advertising you opportunities.

The income opportunity with linkscout occurs when your free associates start exercise their upgrade option. The fee to upgrade is $10 dollars a month in which you receive 40 percent of the monthly upgrade. Just Imagine if 200 members upgrade, you will be receiving $800 dollars monthly to advertise your home base business in 800 websites for free. Do you think Linkscout will be a hard program to market?

There are other programs on the internet which have great conversion rates but I believe that Linkscout is by far the best bang for the buck; Two thumbs up. If you are a newbie to internet marketing I would highly recommend trying Linkscout before paying the big bucks for paid advertising. Linkscout will give you the marketing experience you need and if you recruit enough members, you may never pay for advertising again. This concludes my review of Linkscout.

Protect Your Affiliate ID’s And Increase Commissions 300 Percent

Are your advertising efforts reflected in your affiliate commissions? Chances are your affiliate commissions are being hijacked. I know it sounds farfetched, but there are some internet thugs out there that thrive in finding the lazy ways to wealth. Instead of advertising and promoting their progams, they would rather spend their time finding ways to deprive you of you hard earned commissions.

How is this done?

It’s quite simple, you see when an internet thug visits your affiliate website they can simply replace your affiliate ID with their own, therefore taking credit for anyone who purchases from your site. Believe it or not, there is sophisticated software out there designed to do just that. Another way you can lose your affiliate commissions is when another marketer decides that you are too successful and they simply remove your affiliate ID in the browser and buy directly from the source.

Whatever the reasons may be, the fact is affiliate hijacking does exist. If you plan on marketing on the internet then you are going to have to protect you affiliate ID’s. Protecting you affiliates links is as simple as getting a cloaking tool to hide your affiliate ID’s. It is quite inexpensive to get your hands on a quality cloaking tool, in fact it’s FREE.

Viral Url is a cloaking tool that will protect your affiliate links and also offers some extra services that will be beneficial to your business. The extra advantages that Viral Url offers are as follows;

1. A viral bar that promotes any website of your choice
2. An affiliate program with potential commissions of $97 dollar for every sale
3. Automated advertising of your affiliate program every time someone clicks your links
4. Random advertising of all your cloaked links through a top traffic exchange
5. Tracks your websites statistics
6. An upgrade option that allow you to send mail to 24,000 monthly

As you can see there is no reason to leave your affiliate ID’s naked unless you’re just in internet marketing just for fun. I wish you the best of luck in your internet marketing career, but luck alone will not guarantee your success. It is highly recommended that you protect your links to enhance your advertising efforts as well as increase you commissions with a reliable cloaking tool.

PTC: The Top Pay To Click Websites

The economy is on a downfall and the home based business is on the rise. One of the new money makers in work at home opportunities are PTC, for those of you who don’t know, that stands for pay to click. The simplicity of this money making opportunity is making it a choice of many new opportunity seekers on the internet. It is so simple that many young entrepreneurs in their teens are getting involved with pay to click websites.

The Concept of PTC,PPC or PTR is that you are paid to click on ads you receive in your email inbox or on the inbox provided for you by the PTC site. You get paid to view the publishers ads for about 20 to 30 seconds for each ad. At the end of viewing the ad you are rewarded with cash. The more ads you view the more money you can make. Finally, the term “It’s so simple a ten year old can do it” is actually a true statement.

The amount of cash you receive for viewing each ad is minimal, usually between .02 cents and .05 cents depending on the PTC site. It doesn’t sound like much, but when you belong to at l0 different PTC websites, it can add up, especially if you can generate some referrals. If you are able to get a few referrals, you can watch you income potential grow really fast. The best PTC sites reward you with cash every time your referrals surf for cash.

Here’s an example of one PTC Site statistics:
Earnings Example
� You click 10 ads per day = $0.10
� 20 referrals click 10 ads per day = $2.00
� Your daily earnings = $2.10
� Your weekly earnings = $14.70
� Your monthly earnings = $63.00

As you can see, if you belong to several PTC sites you can create a constant residual commission.

The name of the game is to build a downline of people to duplicate your efforts. By duplicating you efforts, you can maximize your income. Your mind is probably starting to marinate on how to recruit new members for several different PTC sites? Once again, I am not going to leave you hanging. Marketing Pond is great free advertising site that provides a downline builder with over 20 PPC,PTR, and PTR Sites. Advertise your Marketing Pond using some responsive free advertising resources and you’ve got a reliable automated cash machine. Advertising Marketing Pond will help you to promote several PTC websites at one time.

This simple strategy is exactly what you make it, whether you are trying to generate some extra cash or build yourself a residual income, the possibilities are there. This is an easy way for teens and adults alike to make money on the internet.

How To Grow A Responsive Mammoth List

One of the biggest cliche’s that you will here sooner or later when involved in internet marketing is “The Money Is In The List”. Is this phrase true or false? The phrase is entirely true. If you plan on marketing on the internet you will have to develop a responsive mailing list in order to ensure your internet marketing success.

There are several different tactics that can be used while building a mailing list. One of the most successful strategies is using the traffic exchanges to run your squeeze pages. The most important part to succeeding in the top traffic exchanges it to provide surfers some sort of traffic generating product or newsletter in order to collect email addresses for your list. In addition to your squeeze page you will need a reliable autoresponder to deliver follow up messages.

The follow up series you use once you have recruited someone to your mailing is also vital. It is good practice to follow up with your list members every 3 day or so. Every now then you should send you list some sort of valuable information to enhance their business; A free ebook or software works best. Statistics show that most marketers will not make a purchase until their seventh time viewing an opportunity, so it is important to make sure your follow up messages is at least 7 messages long. Last but not least, your first email should have a good introduction about yourself.

These simple rules will help you to create a responsive list that you hopefully can market to over and over again. The reason that these steps are imperative is because most marketers will not purchase from someone they don’t know, so it is important to brand yourself. I have found that email marketing is one of the best ways to introduce your brand to your prospects. Growing a responsive mailing mammoth list will take some time, but will also prove to be the number one asset to your business.

Generate Traffic To Your Blog Using Twitter

Social networking sites are a dime a dozen, but the similarity that they all have is the ability to communicate with people of like interest. I am involved with many social networking groups such as Facebook, My Space and Better Networkers. So far the most productive social network that I have experienced is Twitter.

Twitter took a while to grow on me because I did not quite understand the concept. Is so simple and powerful, it is easy for you to overlook. Twitter gives you the opportunity to communicate with people of the same interest by writing short messages to are viewable by all your followers. The important part is to make sure you develop a system that you can create followers and you in exchange follow them for updates also.

The question that most people ask is; How do I increase my followers? I use forums myself. Forums like Conquer Your Niche have several threads with internet marketers like myself who are eager to reciprocate twitter links with other internet marketers. I have also created a group on Facebook called “Follow Me On Twitter”. Whatever niche you belong to use Google to find if there is forums already created in that niche, If there is then join the forum to search for followers on Twitter.

Other ways to find followers on Twitter is to search on Twitter for people you would like to follow, many they will also follow you, thus creating a huge following for yourself also.

The advantages of creating a huge following on Twitter is a no brainer, it doesn’t have to be a spam fest. In fact you are allowed so many words it is actually difficult to really promote any product effectively. However, it is very effective if you are trying to announce a new blog post or want to send a quick comment. Staying in touch with your followers in this arena gives a personal relationship with them without the constant sales pitch. It has become a very addictive way of creating traffic to my blog.

Twitter has so many uses as a marketing strategy to generate traffic that It was impossible for me to list them all in one blog. There so many marketing strategies that it would have been hard for me to list them on 5 blog entries. I decided to share with you the the one strategy that I enjoy the most, which is announcing my new blog post with just one click. But, you don’t have to worry I am not going to leave you empty handed. If you are really interesting in exploding your traffic with Twitter, Just WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Easy Money For Teens...Easy Wealth Solution

Just the other I was sitting in front of my computer writing an article to submit to the article directories when I realize; If I had known what I know now as a teen I would have made some real easy money on the internet. The fact is I have never been a real fan of writing at all until now. It is so simple to write an article promoting a product or business opportunity, publish it the article directories, and make some real easy money. Writing articles as a teen would have been an easy way to make money, besides I was writing 5 and ten page essays for free anyway.

Last week I wrote an article on the death of network marketing promoting a new cash leveraging program call EZ Wealth Solution. Amazingly within 3 days the article was picked up by 5 other publishers. I made exactly $144 dollars on two members who joined my opportunity. For a $0.00 investment I made 144% return. It took me 30 minutes to write that article, if that’s not easy money for teens, I don’t know what is.

Teens spend most of their time on the internet anyway, and their heads are not clouded with all the economic pressures adults have to deal with. Imagine how fast a teenager can create an article with a mind free of the stresses that Americans are facing today.

If you are not convinced that marketing on the internet is easy money for teens, I will give you another example of how teens can really make money easy on the net.

Another free tool that generates easy wealth is social networking groups like My Space and Facebook. If you take a survey I am sure it would result that more than 75% of teens belong to a social networking site. What that means is that teens are constantly socializing on the net with their peers…Guess who is responsible for the majority of purchases on the net? You guess it…Teens. There many companies that offer affiliate programs for teens to promote CD’s, free downloads, Movies etc. Once again, If that is not easy money for teens, I don’t know what is.

The hardest part of creating wealth is having the knowledge and direction. If as a teenager I had someone guide me towards making money on the internet as an option, I would have ate it up. I found this road by accident or rather the fall of my real estate business. The fact is making money for teens or anyone else for that matter shouldn’t have to be an accident. The internet provides many avenues that are easy and free. Seek and you will find and easy wealth solution.

Using Text Ads In Your Forums Signature

Forums are a great form of learning for any niche you may have. There are forums for basically any topic you can imagine. Although there is no doubt that forums contained a vast amount of information, people generally participate in forums to generate traffic to their website or business. Forums generate traffic through your forum’s signature where you can leave a link or phone number to your business. Learning how to market your business by dominating your forums signature is more beneficial than marketers realize.

Forums are rather simple in the way they operate; You leave comments, questions, or advice and members click on your signature to find more information about the person who is leaving these interesting posts. The traffic you receive is a lot more targeted than other traffic generating tools such as traffic exchanges or even PPC advertising because you have created a rapport with your visitors through your numerous posting. As great as forums are, I have discovered a way to maximize those resuslts…well I shouldn’t say discovered, more like finally figured it out.

The usual way to post a forum signature is place you url in the signature box using the “http” format so that it is clickable to your website. The disadvantages of doing that is, unless your url describes your website content, you will not entice anyone to click on your website’s url. I figured out through trial and error that using text ads are way more effective.

Text ads do more than just give an address to your website. Text ads give forum members a window to what kind of content is within your website. You can also use text ads to create curiousity about your website. It is a fact that text ads work 30% percent more better than even banner ads, so why not use text ads in your forum signature.

Here is an example of two forum signatures leading to the same website…

Let’s tell the truth, which example do you think would peek your curiousity more?

Example 1: http://conversionjunction.com

Example 2: Earn $250 Dollars Daily

O.K. now that I’ve made my point, let me give you some results. Since I figured out what a lot of marketers have been keeping as a secret, I have been receiving 5 times more hits to forums signature. I have completely abandoned a few other forms of marketing to make more time to post to forums. In fact I have added 3 more forums to my arsenal. The proof is in the pudding…Try it for yourself

And Oh yeah…Forums get indexed by the search engines, so your text ads will be viewed by more than just forum members.

Eliminating The Huge One Level MLM Downline

Marketing on the internet is a skill that is gained through hard work and the right education. The first tool you will need is a good marketing plan, one that allows you to reach millions of people at one time. You will also need a daily regimen that is consistent. If you are lucky enough to find the right materials or a mentor that is willing to guide you in the right direction, you can then create a foundation for your internet success.

With the right system in place you will need to start duplicating yourself by recruiting to build a downline, especially if you are pursuing a mlm opportunity. The only way to avoid being a recruiter is to market your own products or affiliate products. Once you start recruiting you may find it hard to get your recruits to duplicate your efforts, thus creating the huge one level downline.

How Do You Eliminate The Huge One Level MLM Downline?

Eliminating the one level downline means you will have to be even more involved with your recruits. Many marketers have the tendency to neglect a new recruit assuming that the recruit understands how to market on the internet. The correct thing to do is to offer any new prospects free marketing tools to guide them in the right direction. In addition to free advertisng you will need to be hands on and explain to your recruit how to use paid Advertising such as PPC.(Pay Per Click)

Unfortunately following all the rules I stated above is not a guarantee that your newly established downline won’t be swayed by a new internet prelaunch. The internet has become so huge worldwide that keeping your downline in tact is a constant struggle. Many marketers have found the answer to eliminating the huge one level mlm downline by joining GPT opportunities. GPT which stands for “Get Paid Today” use a new mlm strategy that allows members to get paid daily.

The difference between GPT programs and the traditional mlm programs are there is no huge downlines in GPT programs. GPT programs are not set up like pyramids, these programs use the 1up and 2up system. Since your commission is not base on your downline you receive larger commissions up front.

Cash Leverage: The Perfect Wealth Formula

I have been in search for the perfect wealth formula for quite some time now. My search has lead me to many disappointments and many sleepless nights. I have studied many aspects of how to make money from home and it led me to internet marketing. Internet marketing is one of the hardest but most cost effective ways you can make money online.
The competition is enormous; The World Wide Web. On the other hand, the expenses are minimal, especially with the high cost of gas. The problem with marketing on the net is everyone is offering the perfect wealth formula. The question is how does one make the right choice to avoid the pitfalls set up by many scam artist?

In many of my blog articles I state that 97% percent of all internet marketers fail before they can make even $100 dollars. The reason I remind everyone of this statistic is to remind them that finding the perfect wealth formula on the internet is a full time job and not a hobby. If you are currently reading this blog post and have not endured your minimum of 6 months of struggle on the internet yet, then you are one of the lucky ones. I have tried almost every get rich quick scheme on the internet before I finally found a program that truly makes sense. If you could hang with me for a second, I’m going to tell you why EZ Wealth Solution is my perfect wealth formula.

EZ Wealth Solution is a Cash Leverage System that uses the Pay It Forward method to eleviate the initial cost that most cash leveraging systems entail. Instead of paying high cost to leverage your position in EZ Wealth Solution, your sponsor pays your way in to the system by bypassing your original fee.

There is also no downline for you to manage. Once you recruit has paid their initial payment and passed you their first referral, they get to keep any commissions for any referrals from that point forward. You will make your next commission from your prospect’s first referral and the system is at work until infinity. That is called the 1up system.

Leveraging cash has been around for quite some time and has created many millionaires. The earlier versions of cash leveraging however were illegal because they were base in the pyramid structure. EZ Wealth Solution uses the 1up system and the 2up system in the higher stages to provide a legitimate cash estate.

Internet Prelaunches Wanted For Death Of Network Marketing

Have you heard the news, internet marketing as we know it is dead. If you are currently in an mlm opportunity that promises you exponential growth with the concept that you recruit 5 people who recruit 5 people, I am sorry to tell that very few people benefit from that concept. The popularity of the internet and the constant prelaunches of new mlm opportunities is destroying downlines as soon as they are established. It has become nearly impossible to keep your downline in tact with the constant distraction of new prelaunches offering a ground floor opportunity. The secret formula to success on the internet is no longer MLM, it is GPT.

GPT simply stated means GET PAID TODAY. Just imagine you build your downline to a mammoth proportion and one of your top prospect jumps ship. It is a scary thought, Isn’t it? The majority of your downline is going to consist of a few big hitters and many followers that are holding on for dear life. So, when one of your big hitters defects, along with them goes several other followers with your residual commission income. Trying to keep your MLM opportunity from becoming an MLM headache is like trying to slow down the cost of gasoline. Let’s face it, new MLM prelaunch businesses are a dime a dozen. The time is now to start seriously looking at an alternative to your soon to be MLM troubles.

The Advantages of GPT OPP’s:

1. GPT opportunities usually consist of a ONE TIME payment
2. You can get paid daily as opposed to monthly
3. Your commission is much higher
4. You can still create a residual income
5. It cost less over time than MLM
6. It attracts more real opportunity seekers than tire kickers

Many MLM diehards will have a hard time letting go of the concept of these huge downline that traditional MLM companies offer, for these diehard I have created an example of how GPT opportunities dominate MLM.

Imagine that your MLM is generating you $4,000 dollars a month for at least 2 years, that is one thousand members yielding you an average commission of $4 a month. In the span of 2 years you would have made $96,000. One of your top performers defects to a program offering ground floor opportunity with a higher commission, and decides to recruit half of your downline to his/her new opportunity. Your $4,000 dollar a month cushion has been dwindled in half; Do you think it will easier or harder to rebuild your team considering the competition?

In a similar scenario using a GPT opportunity such as EZ Wealth with 1000 members, you would have achieve that $96,000 In 3 months or less.

The economy is at such a volatile state that waiting to paid later doesn’t make much sense, especially if your money will be worth less later. GPT offers you the opportunity to GET PAID TODAY and invest your money in others ventures that will result in just as much income from interest as those nickel MLM commissions. Internet MLM prelaunches is responsible for the death of multi level marketing; Are you ready to take your internet career to the next level?

Giveaway Cash: Is EZ Wealth The Solution To Wealth

Giveaway Cash: Is EZ Wealth The Solution To Wealth

Cash leverage systems or cash gifting programs have emerged as one of the most popular solutions to wealth on the internet. As enticing as they may seem, I could not understand the concept of sending anyone my first referral, sometimes as much as $3500 dollars. Marketing on the internet can be a tireless, time consuming project and most cash gifting programs require that after your hard work, you must give up one or two referrals in some cases. The 1up or 2up system in conjunction with the high cost of these money gifting programs crushed my curiousity everytime.

In recent months these cash leverage programs have made a drastic change in the way they operate. Instead of the high cost associated with joining, they have made it more affordable with programs like the Little Guy Network. You can join the Little Guy Network for as little as $200 dollars,LGN uses the 1up system plus there is a monthly charge of $19.95 to be in the network. Once again, enticing but still a litte too pricy for me, especially for a program that I am not sure works. I am not trying to be overly critical, but I was waiting for a money gifting program that eleviated some of the risk with proven results that I could see for myself.

And Finally…A cash leverage system that delivers the results before you deliver your hard earn cash to your sponsor.

How Does It Work?

EZ Wealth has provided a true solution to wealth by using the pay it forward system to make sense of legal cash gifting programs. Basically the person that sponsors you will bypass your initial $47.00 payment until you get your first referral. Your sponsor also adds your referral url to a rotator which he or she promotes, thus helping you to achieve your first 3 referrals. This system allows you to take a free tour of the money gifting program and get some referrals before you’re liable to pay anything. It takes the risk away while your build your daily cash factory. I don’t know about you but I have decided to handle internet offers with kid gloves as of late, it definitely is time to stop being a victim.

As always, do your due diligence when selecting your internet programs, especially giveaway cash programs, there is no certain solution to wealth. The only certainty you can have is to educate yourself and make wise choices. Being successful on the internet can be like winning lotto cash and just as difficult. I hope this report was a help in guiding you in the right direction.

One Way Link Building That Works

I recently (not so recent actually, about 3 months back) discovered a truly one way link building service that works like a charm and I am excited to share it with you.

Why one way link building?

You should know that one of the best ways to get traffic is by getting many top keyword rankings in the search engines. To get a top keyword ranking, you need to have good one way links from different websites linking to your keyword page.

That’s why one way link building is one of the most important tasks in search engine optimization.

How to get one way links?

About 3 months back, I came across a one way link building service called LinkVana.

How LinkVana Works?

In simplicity, LinkVana allows you to submit short articles (100 words) with your anchor links in them to a network of blogs. All the blogs are on different IP addresses with Page Ranks.

There is no limit on the number of posts (and thus one way links) you can make. Technically speaking, you can have hundreds of one way link to any webpage you like, including your Squidoo page.

So if this service really does what it claims, LinkVana is going to be a Link Nirvana!!

And it IS a Link Nirvana!! Let me show you……

The most honest LinkVana review

Here was what I did 3 months ago to test this one way link building service:

I have a poor-performing 40-page Adsense website and it was generating about $20 Adsense income a month. (See my May earning)

I posted 40 100-word articles to LinkVana, each article link to one of the pages in my 40-page website. In other words, I submitted 1 post for every page of my website. I did it on the 5th of June 2008.

Please note that LinkVana will not post all the links at the same time. In my case, I set the system to post 1-3 links a day. So it took the system about a month for all the links to be posted. Yet, I was already seeing immediate result in June.

See my June earning from the website…

All the 40 posts were completed in June. In July, my Adsense earning from this website exceeded $100.

Ok, money aside, let’s look at the traffic stat for this website.

The traffic began to increase in June (the month when I started building 1 one way link to each page of my website) and remained stable in July and August.

The screenshot below shows you the top 10 search engine keywords for the website in May (before I use LinkVana) and in August (2 months after I use LinkVana).



You can see that with just 1 post to each page, I’m starting to get top rankings in many keywords that I’m trying to target.

Another interesting note is that I’m starting to get more traffic from shorter keywords. Before using the service, I’m getting traffic from 4- to 5-word keywords. After submission, all my top 10 are 3- to 4-word keywords.

Frankly, I feel like hitting an SEO jackpot!

What would happen if I continue to build more one way links to this website? Remember, there is no limit on the number of links you can build using LinkVana.

I stopped my experiment on this website at this point because I wanted to post links to ALL my other websites and see if the results are similar.

I have close to 100 websites and you can imagine it will take me some time before I complete all the submissions.

I am not even half way through the work but based on the progress so far, I’m already experiencing 13% increase in my total Adsense income.

LinkVana subscription costs $147 a month. Not cheap. If not because someone I trusted recommended this one way link building service to me, I wouldn’t even give it a look.

LinkVana membership is limited to only 300 members. At $147 a month, I don’t think it will be taken up fast. But don’t take too long to make your decision or you’ll regret when the door is closed.

Special bonus for those who take action

A bonus for those who take up this one way link building service.

If you subscribe through this link, I’m going to give you my Linkvana Blueprint. In this blueprint, I will show you how I set up LinkVana for 100 websites. Doing it for 1 website is easy, but doing it for 100 websites easily will need some tricks. Once you’re subscribed, simply email the receipt to support[at]leadsleap[dot]com, with the subject “My LinkVana Bonus”. I will email you the blueprint personally.

Happy one way link building!

How To Pick A Great Affiliate Product To Market

If you are a newbie internet marketer, one of the fastest ways to get started is affiliate marketing. Marketing affiliate products is very cost effective because it gives you the opportunity to market other marketers products without having to spend large amounts of money on websites and the development of products of your own. A great way to market affiliate products is by using blogs to offer product reviews using highly targeted keywords. While blogs are very effective, they will not guarantee your success if you are not promoting a product with a high conversion rate.

Choosing a high converting product takes a little bit of skill and the internet knowhow. It is not difficult to learn the what to look when choosing a product that sells, but there are a few simple rules that you must follow:

1. Try to choose a product that consumers need. Health and Fitness products are usually high converting products because so many people are self conscious about their appearance.
2. Try to choose product that doesn’t have too many competitors. If you are promoting a product that has a lot of competitors, you will have to work twice as hard to succeed.
3. Choose a product that your passionate about. For example if you are an internet marketer, you should choose a product that is related to your niche. The better you understand your product, the easier you will be able to write articles pertaining to that affiliate product.
4. Try to choose a product that offers a residual commission plan. This last rule is not mandatory if you have a affiliate product that produces constant sales, but it is definitely more lucrative if you choose a product that can pay you a residual income month after month off one sale.

How Do I Find High Converting Products?

To find high converting products you can visit Commission Junction, Click Bank, Pay Dot Com or Never Blue Ads. If you are a need of a great affiliate product that converts well and are not sure what to look for, I recommend Reliable Contact. They provide internet marketers with fresh leads every month. Their compensation plan offers a 2 tier monthly residual payout.

Marketing affiliate products on the internet can create a healthy income, remember to follow the tips I stated above and you can be well on your way to becoming a successful affiliate marketer.

Pay Per Click: Stop Playing And Start Paying

Internet Marketing is quite alluring, many marketers are drawn in by the infinite amounts of earning potential. Almost every advertisement speaks of how easy it is to make a fortune on the internet, the unfortunate part of these advertisements is that it draws individuals looking for something for nothing. I don’t know about you, but I have never received anything without working for it one way or another. Although I do recommend started out with free programs to get your feet wet while you learn how to market on the internet, it is not the road to infinite amounts of earning potential. Pay Per Click can be transformed into Pay You Per Click if you serious marketer and take the time to study your niche.

One of the many reasons that marketers tend to shy away from PPC campaigns is that Pay Per Click advertising is totally different from posting ads in a magazine. Pay Per Click advertising is a direct opposite of any other advertising on the internet and the most effective when done correctly. The difference between PPC campaigns is that any fluff or deceitful advertising will effect predatory marketers in their pockets. The strategy of enticing prospects to click on your ad based on curiosity is disarmed by PPC campaigns.
Pay Per Click advertising separates the real marketers from the fluff marketers and that’s the reason the many internet marketers are apprehensive.

Three Rules To A Successful PPC Campaign:

1. Include the price if any in your PPC ads
2. Describe your product as clearly as possible
3. Choose your keyword carefully ( Do Not Be Too Broad)

To achieve internet success I truly believe that it is mandatory to include PPC advertising to you repertoire of weapons. PPC advertising does not have to be costly if you have follow the rules of the game. If you are unsure of how to successfully put together a PPC campaign I recommend joining Facebook and signing up to the Visa Business Network. The Visa Business Network is currently offering $100 dollars in PPC advertising. I recommend Facebook because they are by far the strictest I have found in accepting PPC advertising, if your advertising has any fluff they will reject it. Using Facebook’s PPC campaign will help you to develope your skills for Google and the other search giants.

Better Conversions Using The Traffic Exchanges

I remember when I first started marketing on the internet, I did not have a clue where to begin. I bought a credit repair website on E-bay for $19.95 and after my purchase I realize that I needed to generate some traffic to that website. My research for traffic generation lead me to the traffic exchanges, being so inexperienced on the internet I made all the mistakes of a newbie marketer. I ran my new website through the top twenty traffic exchanges for months with no results until I learned how to use and understand the traffic exchanges.

The traffic exchanges are extremely effective if you have a grasp on exactly how to succeed using the traffic exchanges. There are rules to every form of marketing on the internet the traffic exchanges are not an exception. There are rules to this game and this blog post is a manual on how to get better conversions using the traffic exchanges.

Rule #1: Do not use an affiliate page to promote your opportunity

Affiliate marketing is great cost effective way to get started in internet marketing without spending money on an expensive website. The problem with using an affiliate website is that everyone else is running that same website through the traffic exchanges. One of the keys to success on the net is the ability to brand yourself, using an affiliate page will get you lost in the sauce. Most prospects purchase after seeing your product at least 7 times, imagine promoting your affiliate page only to lose the sale to someone else promoting the same opportunity.

Rule #2: Create a squeeze page or splash page for your affiliate program

A squeeze page is simple webpage that introduces your opportunity with a quick advertisement that entices the prospect to leave their email address for more information.Using a squeeze page will be enhance your chances of conversions by allowing you to collect your prospects email so you can market to them in the future through your autoresponder. As I state earlier, most prospects buy after 7 exposures, so the autoresponder will give you the chance to continue your marketing efforts. A splash page is similar to a squeeze page except for the collection of information. A splash page redirects your prospect to your website immediately after the click on the JOIN NOW button.

Rule #3: Use a multi-tabbed browser to surf multiple websites

Traffic exchanges allow to generate credits for view to you website by allowing you to view members sites for 8 to 30 seconds depending on the website. Since most traffic exchanges do not give you equal credits for equal views, it can be a tedious task viewing 3 websites to get 1 view back to your site. The best way to maximize your efforts using the traffic exchanges is to use a multi-tabbed browser like Firefox to view multiple websites at one time. Firefox gives you the advantage to get 10x the results for the same amount of time.

Rule #4: Use a traffic exchange downline builder

A traffic exchange downline builder helps you to grow your referrals with multiple traffic exchanges while advertising one link. Since you earn credits for every referral and every page that your referral surf, you can earn more traffic to your website from your referrals efforts. Traffic Hoopla is traffic exchange downline builder that promotes the top 20 traffic exchanges and the top ten safelist.

Traffic Exchanges receive some negative endorsements from marketers who do not take the tme to understand how to use the traffic exchanges. The truth is of all the marketing techniques that I have used on the internet, traffic exchanges and safelist have given me the best results. If you follow these four rules you should be well on your way to success with getting better conversions using the traffic exchanges.

Using Long Tail Keywords To Generate Traffic

Getting a top rank blog with the top search engines can be quite an adventure. The emergence of Web 2.0 has open the doors for millions of new social marketers and blogs are usually their weapon of choice. The keys to good placement in the search engines is being able to select the right keywords for your niche, it seems simple enough but if you have too many competitors using the same keywords, you get lost in the sauce. The solution to that problem is the use of long tail keywords.

Long tail keywords are basically multiple words or phrases that are search for on a usual basis. Instead of using a single keyword like “traffic’, you can use a long tail keyword like “how to generate traffic to my website”. Long tail keywords are extremely effective because they are specific to the search term. The use of long tail keywords also creates highly targeted traffic. Using the long tail strategy reduces your competitors immensely but you still need to do your research to see how many competitors are using that particular keyword.

How Do I Search My Competitors?

First thing you need to do is locate a few good long tail keywords that compliment you product or niche. You can research your keywords by using a free keyword tool like Google Adwords Keyword Tool or SEO Book. Both of these tools are great because they give you statistics on how many times a day a keyword is search for. Once you find your keyword, do a search on Google for that keyword using parenthesis. Putting your keyword in parenthesis will let you know how many competitors are using that keyword.
For best results try to find a keyword with less than 7,000 competitors.

What Is The Best Way To Use My Long Tail Keyword?

The rule of thumb is to use your keyword in a way so that it flows through your article. I recommend a keyword that ask a question, the reason for this is; you can use that keyword in the title. The title is the most important keyword you can get and the most effective. The keyword phase you use must also be used in 7 percent of the article content, try not be too repetitious but you can use different variations. If you follow these simple instructions you will be able to rank high with the search, which in turn will drive massive amounts of traffic to your website.

Can Blogging Create A Passive Income

Blogging Your Way To Money

Blogging has literally become a social marketing icon on the internet. The concept of blogging is so simple that most people find it confusing. Blogs are being being generated on a daily basis and if you want to stay on top of your marketing, you are going to have to incorporate blogging into your marketing plan. There several questions that new wannabe bloggers often ask, so today I will attempt to answer them. The simplicity of blogging you way to money will surprise you.

But First Of All…

What is the blog?

A blog is simply a personal online diary that you can create on virtually any topic. Blogs are ways to share your common interests amongst your peers. Blogging your ideas on the internet will also help you to generate a following of likeminded individuals. Whether you are blogging for profit or just for fun, you will be able to create a following.

What does blog Stand For?

Although there is no acronym for the word blog I would like to think that it stands for Building Lots Of Groups. The reality is that the word blog derived from the term Web Log.

What is blogspot?

A blogspot is a personal webpage that is maintained solely for the purpose of publishing your blogs. Your blogspot can consist of one niche idea or collaboration of all your thoughts. It is more efficient to have a blogspot that caters to one particular topic to entice repeat visitors that are interested in that topic. If you have several topics you would like to write about, it is better practice to create a blog for every topic. Examples of blogspots that allow you to create blogs for free are Google Blogger, Hub Pages, Word Press and Squidoo.

And Now The Question We’ve All Been Waiting For…

How Can I Make Money Blogging?

The best way to make money online blogging is to create great content for your blog…it’s that simple. Creating great content for you blog will generate massive traffic to you blog, once you have the traffic than you can advertise products and services on your blogs pages.

Don’t Have Your Own Products or Services?

You can join Clickbank, Commission Junction, or the Google Adsense program. They are all free to join and you receive commission every time you refer someone that purchases a product through your website. Google Adsense actually pays you every time someone clicks on an ad on your site whether they purchase or not. Google adsense conversion depends on the popularity of you niche.

In summary blogging your way to money is a simple as creating great content for your blog, generating massive traffic to your blog, and choosing the right products to advertise on your blog. If you do your research you will find several other affiliate programs with great products to choose from.

My next blog post will be on “Using Keywords To Drive Traffic To Your Blog”. If you have any specific blog request leave me a comment.

Generating Massive Traffic

There are different clichés that internet marketers frequently use to grab your attention, one of the most popular clichés is “the money is in the list”. Another popular cliché is “you need video on your website”. The truth of the matter is you can not begin to think about any of these tactics if you a not generating massive traffic to your website or squeeze page. Before you buy any product or build any website, your main focus needs to be, how you’re going to generate massive traffic to that site. There is an abundance of effective traffic generation techniques. Finding the right one will increase your chances of getting a lot of traffic to your website on a daily basis. The methods that I find most useful are the ones that are directly related to the search engines.

Search Engine Optimization, SEO for short, is a tool that most successful marketers will have to use at one point or another in their careers. Search Engine Optimization is the art of using keywords to increase your rankings in the search engines. The key is to find what popular keyword that most people are searching for and using those same keywords in your articles, website, and text ads. When someone uses the search engines to look up some information using your keyword or phrase, they are then directed to your website. Using keyword tools such as Seobook or Google keyword tool will help you to find out how competitive a keyword is and how many times the keyword is searched in the search engines. Mastering SEO will help you to generate massive traffic to your website.

The most cost effective way to use SEO to generate traffic to your website is blogs or article directories. After you have completed your keyword research, you can now write articles using your keywords in approximately 3 to 7 percent of your article body. Use your keywords so they flow with your article, do not use your keywords to the point where it becomes to repetitious. The next step is to submit your article to some article directories such as Ezine Articles or Go Articles. These directories are very popular and do very well with the search engines. You can also post your article to various blogs like Hub Pages and Word Press.

Measuring Marketing Campaign Prospects

Making the transition from a regular job to start an online business is definitely a huge step, especially if you are pursuing a multi level marketing opportunity. Locating and measuring your marketing campaign prospects can make or break your business. It is difficult to market your opportunity to people who are not interested in entrepreneurship.

The most common thing most new marketers do is to run to their family members and try to sell them on their opportunity. The harsh reality of marketing to friends and family usually hits like a ton of bricks to your dreams. Success in any online business doesn’t have to be that way and you don’t have to market to friends until you are already successful. Being successful has little to do with your efforts, but rather the system you use to promote your business.

Email marketing programs are the answer to solving your internet marketing woes. There are a lot of email marketing tips and resources available on the internet. The problem with those services is that they offer free list of email addresses that have been given to thousands before you. The most effective measure in building your email marketing list is to build your own opt-in list. Building your own opt-in will ensure that the prospects that join your list are interested in your product. The fastest way to build your free email mailing list is to use Viral marketing list builders such as List Joe. Promoting List Joe will also grow your list with nine other list builders. Once you have a large number of prospects you will need to master the art of preparing sales prospect letters.

Preparing a professional sales prospect letter is a crucial step in measuring your marketing campaign prospects. You have to know what motivates your prospects to take action. After all, building a large list without converting that list into sales is a total waste of time. There are several components that go into writing a professional sales letter to entice your prospects; one of the most important is the headline. Being able to capture your reader with a headline that evokes curiosity is key. Once you have captivated your reader you must gain your prospect’s attention by asking and answering questions within your letters body. The final step is to continuously follow up with your prospect until you earn their trust.

The whole process of measuring your marketing campaign prospects and building your viral email marketing list can a little time consuming. You will need to strengthen your writing skills to be able to turn leads into conversions. If you are someone who lacks the time to put into this particular part of your internet business, I suggest you use Reliable Contact. Reliable Contact is an internet based advertising company that provides its members with fresh leads every month and pre-written auto responder sales letters. They measure your marketing campaign prospects according to your niche.

Marketing online has little to do with your experience, your level of education or your financial background. Online marketing has everything to do with the system you are using to promote your business. Make it a habit to measure your marketing campaign prospects to avoid wasted advertising time and money.

Marketing After The Tsunami

Web 2.0 arrived and immediately redefined the way marketers function on the net. Marketing after the Tsunami which is Web 2.0 now takes a lot more interaction. Marketers in the past were satisfied to co-exist in anonymity because it gave them the power to promote their products without exposing themselves. Web 2.0 has changed internet marketer’s approach to delivering their products to the masses. It has definitely open the doors to some new marketing strategies, some good and some definitely bad. The question we need to answer is; Has Web 2.0’s takeover of the marketing arena improved the business as a whole or opened internet marketing to the less skillful.

The world wide web was base on a simple of foundation of mostly print advertising through the internet. The more people you could reach by using SEO methods or PPC, the more your business stood a chance to succeed. The use of certain eye catching headlines and visuals were also effective, but you had to get your audience to your site first before you could use those tactics. Once you got someone to your site you then had to make sure that your site had great content in order to create a repeat visitor. The foundation of the internet has not changed, You still need all those components to capture your visitors, but the approach has changed.

The Web 2.0 Tsunami has made it difficult for the anti social to market. Social marketing has become the core of the web 2.0 movement. Powerhouse websites like My Space, Facebook, and You Tube has forced even the old school marketer to break down. Nowadays if you don’t have one of the powerhouse websites in your marketing portfolio, chances are you’re hurting your profit margin. Making business or personal contacts using these site is a viral marketing tool that is unparallel to any other strategy. The only problem I have found with the Web 2.0 phenomenom is that your information is accessible to any and everyone. The negative aspects of having your information disclose, is the unsolicited intrusion from spammers who send fraudulent or sexually based ads. If you don’t mind being flashed or spam occasionally then Web 2.0 is definitely a positive.

In conclusion I believe that Marketing After the Web 2.0 Tsunami has expanded the internet in a good way. Putting a face to your product or business is a win-win situation, the customer can feel more secure and at the same time you can brand yourself as a good marketer. For those of you who do not wish to get involved in Web 2.0 strategies, the foundation is still in tact. Marketing techniques such as SEO, PPC, and email marketing are still very effective internet marketing tools. The addition of social marketing strategies will not hurt the business but rather expand it to an even larger market.

Preparing A Sales Prospect Letter

Health and Fitness has become huge concerns for everyone today, thus creating a large demand for health and fitness products. Many entrepreneurs are taking advantage of this vastly growing market by promoting health and fitness products via the internet. It is a fact that most customers will not make a purchase until their seventh time viewing a product, so email marketing has become the advertising of choice for many marketers. Using email marketing to promote your health and fitness products can be a lucrative choice if you learn the correct way to market to your perspective buyers.

Email marketing is the single most effective tool you can use to make multiple contact with your prospects without consuming too much of your time. There are different methods you can use in order to attain a potential customers email address; one great method is to add a web form to your website that offers your prospect a free newsletter on the product that you are promoting. The web form should be tied to an auto responder that sends out at least 7 preset messages to keep your product fresh on your prospects mind. These sales prospect letters are meant to keep potential customer interested and also keep them informed on any special offers or new products.

Writing a sales prospect letter requires that you use some thought in constructing the letter or otherwise it may be ineffective. Your letter should consist of an attention grabbing headline; a headline that ask a very powerful question or makes a bold statement is recommended. It is also a good practice to briefly address your headline in the body or your email. Limiting your sentences to no more than four in any given paragraph will hold your readers attention.

If you are an extremely busy individual that does not have much time to fully implement the use of email marketing for your health and fitness business, I suggest you use a company called Reliable Contact. Reliable Contact provides its clients with fresh leads every month and an auto responder with 15 pre-written sales prospect letters. Using email marketing to promote you health and fitness business or any other internet based busness will prove to be a worthwhile investment if used properly.

Exploding Your Website Hit Meter...750 Hits An Hour

Do you want to know how to generate massive traffic to your website to the tune of 750 hits an hour? Most people look at me like I’m speaking a foreign language when I mention such a thing, but it is entirely possible. There is a method to this madness, and today I am going to share with you a little secret. Generating 750 hits an hour can be easily achieved using the traffic exchanges.

What Is a Traffic Exchange?

A traffic exchange is a way to generate traffic to your website by viewing websites of other traffic exchange members. For every website you view, depending on the traffic exchange, your website is rewarded with credits for viewing. The most common exchange ratios for TE ‘s are 2:1 for free members and 1:1 for paid members. Ratios determine how many times your website will be viewed for every site that you view. The time allotted for viewing a website is different with every exchange but the average is 15 seconds per website.

How Can I Generate 750 Hits An Hour?

Generally surfing one traffic exchange for one hour will yield you about 100 hits to your website. The key to exploding your website hit meter is to use a multi tabbed brower like Firefox or Crazy Browser to surf up to ten websites at one time. Firefox allows you to open multiple websites so you can view the websites that interest you and bypass the websites that you’ve already viewed or have no interest in. With a multi tabbed browser you can generate 750 hits an hour.

But wait…It gets better! You can generate 750 hits every hour without having to surf 24 hours a day.

How Can I Generate 750 Hits Every Hour?

Traffic Exchanges allow you to build your downline by referring other members. For every member that you refer, you are rewarded credits towards your website views. You are also rewarded credits every time that you downline surf for credits. Most traffic exchange allow your downline to go as far as 10 levels deep. Being able to build a huge downline will help you to increase hits to your website without any effort on your part. The best way to multiply your efforts is by using a downline builder. A traffic exchange downline builder promotes several TE’s, so advertising your downline builder will grow your referrals in multiple traffic exchanges at one time.

I Don’t Have The Time To Surf!

If you don’t have the time to surf for credits you can always upgrade your account by purchasing a guaranteed amount of visitors every month. Upgraded members get paid a percentage of the monthly fees collected from members in their downline that have also upgraded. The average fee for an upgrade is $6 dollars a month. The incentive for creating a huge downline is that you can recover your monthly fees and create a residual income on all your referrals that upgrade.

What Is The Best Strategy?

This is not a system that is going to manifest itself overnight, with that being said, the best way to explode your website meter is to promote your downline builder only for about 6 months. After building a huge downline you can then start advertising your primary website and watched your Alexa rankings go through the roof. Even though the hits are not highly targeted hits, you will definitely gain some new customers plus increase your rankings in the search engines. The best part is the whole system will be viral, which means it will continue to grow exponentially with little effort on your part.

For better results use a downline builder that offers you the option of adding a Auto Responder to your promotional squeeze page… Vital Viral provides that option for upgraded members.

Safelist: Worthwhile or Worthless

A discussion on safelist will yield many different opinions and opposition, but that the simple fact still remains, the majority of internet marketers use safelist. Safelist are the fastest, easiest way to expose your business opportunity,list builders or to expose your website to thousands instantly. I noticed that most people that complain about the flaws in safelist do not use them properly.

The most effective way to use safelist is the use the credit based safelist. A credit based safelist is a safelist that rewards its members credits for reading other members ads. It is similar to a traffic exchange except for the fact that you can not use a multi-tabbed browser, you must view the ad for the alloted time. If you are only using one or two safelist you propably will not see great results. The key is to use at least 20 safelist and do at least 3 bulk email mailings a week. Upgraded members get better results because they are alloted more credits automatically and they are allowed to email the list more often.

Some people view safelist as waste of time due to the percentage of email sent and the emails that are actually read. I look at it differently, I you send out 400,000 emails and you receive 40 sign ups for your programs, that is a successful campaign. What other advertising method can yield those results in one day? Not Many. The Strength is in the number of emails that is sent out.

I believe that safelist are worthwhile and if use properly can be a catalyst for all your advertising programs. The top ten safelist can be found in Traffic Hooopla. I also recommend Herculist.
