Internet Marketing Tips - How Do I Start Blogging?

So, you ask - how do I start blogging?

First a bit of history is in order. Blogs were first introduced as weblogs that refer to a “server’s log file.” Web logging has, over time, basically saturated the virtual community, which has made the Internet an extremely good source of information on countless numbers of topics.

The drawback with web logging is that you will need a web site and domain name. However, all you'll need to begin your blogging activities is a blog hosting account at a blogging provider, and quite often your account setup is free of charge.

More often than not, blogs are setup by individuals for there own personal use. They write about the goings on in their lives, activities, or perhaps base their blog around a specific issue or cause that is important to them.

However, over time businesses have moved some of their operations online, and blogging has become a way for them to increase their exposure, both of their brand name as well as their product offerings.

This increased exposure is designed to improve product sales as well profit margins, since blogging has such a low cost involved as compared to the costs of traditional retail channels. Blogging has become one of the best free ways to make money online.

Using blogs, businesses are able to provide useful information to their online visitors (potential customers) that is of immediate value to them.

Once this relationship has been established, the blog can then be "monetized" simply by directing the visitor to the company's website via a hyperlink.

If you are thinking of creating a blog, either for personal or business use, here are a few tips to get you going that should help differentiate you online from the other blogs within your category.

Here’s how:

1. Determine who your visitors are

The primary purpose of your blog, even if it is a personal one, is to give voice to your message - to be heard. Therefore, keep your visitors in mind and be sure to create content that is of interest to them.

2. Dress it up

Nothing makes a blog more visually applealing than a bit of intersting grahics. If it's apersonal blog, add some pictures that you can identify with in some way - this shares your personality with readers. If it's a business blog, add some product pictures, and of course your company logo.


The purpose of your blog is to share useful insights and information, not just ramble endlessly with drivel. Always be sure your content will in some way be of value to your visitor.

4. Don't make complicated posts

Do not try and impress your visitors with your knowledge of the dictionary. Write in straightforward language that the masses can understand. This is not a college thesis - just a simple transfer of information.

Remember, many of your visitors will simply be browsing the web, and you do not want your posts to be difficult to read.

5. Involve audio or video to enhance interactivity

If your provider allows it, add some audio or video. This will enhance your blog by having your readers watch and/or listen rather than just read.

Additionally, allow your readers to comment or give you feedback. This gives your blog more of a community feel, and you'll gain insight into exactly what your visitors are looking for from your blog.

So, whether for personal or business use, blogs can be a great way to share information, get your message heard and build your network. Enjoy!

Internet Marketing Tips - Website Traffic Series #1

Welcome to the first installment of the website traffic series.

I've decided to begin a series of posts that will address the issue
of generating targeted website traffic, which we all know is THE
key factor facing not only internet marketers, but anyone doing
business on the web.

If you don't have the knowledge and ability to drive lots of visitors
to your website, it doesn't really matter how great your content,
pricing, etc. is......nobody will get the opportunity to see it.

Consequently, if nobody is visiting your website it will be virtually impossible for you to make money online.

Can you imagine a standard brick and mortar business opening up and doing no advertising to drive potential customers to their store?

Of course not...

That is essentially what traffic generation methods accomplish. The methods you use are forms of advertising that drive visitors to your website, which then gives you the opportunity to present your offer(s), whatever they may be.

So let's begin exploring the many options you have of driving targeted website traffic to your particular site on the web.

Increase Website Traffic - Method #1 -- Provide High Quality, Unique Content

This may seem obvious, but you'd be surprised at how many marketers forget this critical element.

The web is cluttered with low-quality, "also-ran" websites that provide little, if any, useful information to the visitor.

Set yourself apart by creating high-quality, useful, keyword-rich content that will be easy for web surfers, and more importantly the search engines, to find.

As you progress, the search engines will consider you a more valued and trusted site, as compared to others in your niche or category.

Also, as visitors come to value the content you produce they will naturally want to share the information with their friends and business audience. This will lead to those highly valuable one-way links to your site, and they'll often do this without being prompted to do so - they simply want to share a valuable resource.

Keep in mind as you create your content that if you can in some way solve some type of problem or situation that someone else has, they will love you for it, return again, and share your website with others.

See you soon with another tip to help you increase your website traffic.

Internet Marketing Tips - What Is Bum Marketing?

Have you heard about the latest buzz called bum marketing?

Bum marketing has been all the rage in the last few months and
there is a good reason.

So what is bum marketing?

Bum marketing is a very focused method of Internet Marketing with no advertising cost at all.

Bum marketing is basically writing and submitting highly focused
articles that contain keywords on a certain topic.

Just like the article you are reading right now.

Say you have a product that shows someone how to make quilts and
you want to promote the product, but you just do not have the
money to do so.

All you do is go to and do a search for little
used keyword terms for quilting.

You want to put quotes around your search term so you can get
exact phrase matching results.

For instance, you could seach for the keyword "free quilting tips"
and you will see how many times that keyword was searched for.

The heart of bum marketing lies when you find a keyword that has
a good search results and few if any google adwords.

Then using bum marketing you can write up short 250-300 word articles that contain the search phrase.

When writing your articles for bum marketing you should try and use
the keyword phrase in the first and second paragraphs and then about
5-7 more times througout the article.

In the resource box at the end of your article, you will put a link
to your website so the readers will click onto your product page.

After you submit your bum marketing articles to a few article directories the search engines will index your article on keyword density and rank you high in the searches for your keywords.

Bum marketing is a great no cost way to make money on the internet. Give it a try.

Internet Marketing Tips - Three Simple Rules For Profiting From Internet Marketing Forums

A rarely used method for profiting online is by using
internet marketing forums.

Forums should be an integral part of your business marketing
plan. Internet marketing forums are a great way to drive traffic
to your product website and here's how to do it.

Internet Marketing Forums Rule #1 - Ask questions.

When joining a few internet marketing forums, one the best
ways to introduce yourself is to ask questions of fellow

Make your questions relevant. Be polite. Look at other
posts and determine the forums posting rules.

Don't ask questions just for the sake of making a post.

Get involved with the members and make sure to post only
those questions that pertain to the subject matter.

Internet Marketing Forums Rule #2 - Answer questions.

Here's where the biggest impact will be made with internet
marketing forums.

By anwering other forum members questions, you create a
good relationship.

Never post an answer unless you really know how to help
the person out.

Many times you'll find internet marketing forums being
abused by people who just post irrelevant comments for
the sake of advertising a product.

This is spam and will get you banned from the forums.

Internet Marketing Forums Rule #3 - Use a signature file.

This is a powerful method of using internet marketing
forums to drive traffic to your website.

Your signature file is simply an ad for your website.

You always place this at the end of your post when using
internet marketing forums.

Never just use a signature file without giving actual
help and useful information.

Again, you will build trust by helping others, and in
return they will visit your website and hopefully
become paying customers or subscribers.

Put these rules to good use when using internet marketing
forums for maximum results.

#2 - Once you've created or found a product you'll

For example, you can go to and use
what is called Pay Per Click advertising.

This is where you pay for actual clicks on an ad you

You do this by compiling a list keywords that are
targeted to your product.

Keywords are basically search terms you use to find
information on the topic of your choice.

bids on each one.

ad, then you're charged.

The Value Of Article Marketing

The value of article marketing is several fold, in that
it performs several different functions for the marketer
simultaneously that all work together to achieve the
common purposes of positioning and profitability.

The positioning is two-fold. Search engine listing positions
can be influential in determining the amount of traffic received
to the article and the corresponding sales page.

This is located on the other side of the link in the resource
box just below the conclusion of the article.

Also, the positioning as to how the marketing article effectively
pre-sells and qualifies the visitor to the website by
placing content that is niche related to the website, with
the product and/or service directly in front of the viewer
so that the viewer may then decide to become a targeted
website visitor or simply leave the article with the new
content retained.

Both of these positioning abilities of articles in marketing
make article marketing a very viable strategy in extending
market reach, web presence and even sales conversions in the
long run.

A well written article such as this one, or one that might be
created by the world's best article marketing service,
ArticlesInMyInbox, will be effective in search engine rankings
as well as delivering fresh, original, unique and interesting
content that keeps the reader captivated and longing to see
just what awaits them at the web site prepared expressly and
exclusively for their enjoyment and service to them.

Sometimes the most helpful advice can be found in that very
resource box where an ebook containing steps on how to build
a list or write an article would be.

Yes, sometimes, it's just simple to see the straightforward
effectiveness of caring for your customer.

After all, they are always going to be number one to you.

Internet Marketing Success - The True Secret To Internet Marketing Success

For many, internet marketing success is hundreds of miles away and
seemingly unattainable.

But in reality there is a real secret to internet marketing success
that many use - but few understand how to harness.

See, with todays' "download and go" mentality you have put
something on the back burner that was taught to you at an early age.

And that is patience. Patience is the true secret to not only internet
marketing success, but success with any type of venture in your life.

Yep, this little word conjures up quite a few emotions in you.

And now I want to put patience into context with your internet marketing success.

You must never think or believe that if you start your business on a
Monday, by Friday you should be able to quit your day job.

This is just not going to happen. You need have patience.

If you think that getting in on a "get rich" quick plan is going to earn
you $100,000 in thirty days by sending a dollar to five people on a list, then I suggest you go and flush your hard earned five dollars down the toilet.

You need to have patience.

Now, if you are willing to put in some hard work, and are willing to go
that extra mile, and have patience then you will achieve internet
marketing success.

Take your time with your internet business.

You obviously chose to start your own business to live a better and more fulfilling life for yourself and family.

Why would you want to rush in and take the risk of a failure, just because you did not have patience.

I will leave you all with this little thought that I have used over and
over again, and it has worked for me every time.

"Keep it fun, and the money will come." Just remember to never ever give up on your dreams!

You must have patience.

Internet Marketing Tips - The Perfect Home Based Business Explained

One of the most common questions I am asked is this...

"Hey Scott, Just what the heck is the PERFECT type of
home based business".

That is a very good question, and I think it deserves
a thoughtful answer, so here it is in a nutshell.

With all of the hundreds upon hundreds of different
"earn a secondary income" offers that come into your email or snail mail box, there can be what I like to call "option anxiety".

This is where you have 35 offers that all sound and
look super, but for the life of you, you just cannot
seem to be able to pick the one that really stands
apart from the rest.

Not to worry my fine hard working friend.

With the onset of this barage, you have forgotten one
little, simple thing that will always help you decide
which home based business offer is the perfect one
for you.

What is this simple thing?

You simply choose the one offer that makes you feel
comfortable and gets you excited!

Yep, that is it.

See, in order for you to really get behind whatever
home based business offer you decide on, you must
believe in it and feel one hundred percent comfortable
with your choice.

This way you can say for sure that you will be able
to get behind your choice and make it work for the
only person that counts - and that is you.

So, remember no matter how many home based business
offers come onto your plate, choose the one that makes
you feel confident that you can get behind your choice
100% and make it happen!

Michael Rasmussen's "Mini Site Profits Exposed" Video Series: How To Create A Mini Site That Runs On Autopilot And Makes You Money While You Sleep!

Most Internet marketers understand that having mini
sites is one of the fastest and easiest ways to make money
online. They don't require a lot of time, energy, or
money to set up, and once you've got one up and
running, you can sit back and just collect money from
all the sales you're making.

At least... that's how it's supposed to be, right?

The truth is that mini sites really ARE easy to set
up. They really DON'T require much time, energy, and
money to set up. So why is it that so few people
actually make money with their mini sites?

The answer is that they never learned how to actually
turn their mini site into a profitable moneymaker that
runs completely on autopilot. The good news is...


Here's what this is all about: My colleague Michael
Rasmussen has just released a brand new video course
that will walk you through the process of creating a
killer mini site from the ground up, and then he'll

it right away and into the future.

If you've been looking for help with monetizing your
mini sites, then this is exactly what you need. The
best part? The videos are FREE! I'll tell you more

Mini Site Profits


It's important to note that these are online videos
that you access from your web browser. Michael uses
Camtasia Studio to create these videos, which is the
premier software program for creating screen capture
tutorials such as these.

The first thing I noticed when I hit the play button
on the first video was the incredible production
quality. These are NOT your ordinary screen capture
videos. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen someone
make videos that are this high quality before.

He uses beautifully created graphics to pass his
wisdom along to you, and the sound quality is the
highest you will ever hear in an Internet marketing
product. They sound like they were recorded in a
professional studio.

Michael explained to me that he was sick and tired of
seeing all the low quality videos out there, and so he
set out to create something different in order to
raise the bar in our industry. I think that, when you
see Mini Site Profits Exposed for yourself, you'll
agree that he has succeeded.

Now let's move onto...


Here's a brief summary of each video. Obviously
it's impossible to list every single thing here,
but I want you to get a feel for what each one
covered, and how well it covered it.

This videos introduces you to the entire course, as
well as the teacher himself. You'll learn what you can
expect from the course, and why it's structured the
way it is.

Michael realizes that you may not have heard of him,
and so he spends some time establishing his
credibility with you by sharing some of his biggest
successes. It doesn't come across as bragging at all.
Michael explains that, in order for you to get value
from the teachings, you need to have faith that the
teacher actually knows what he's talking about. By the
end of this video, you will have no doubt.

By the way, this is a good lesson for all of us
product developers. If you want people to accept you
as an authority on any subject, you first need to
establish your credibility with the reader. That way
he's willing to relax, and trust that what you're
telling him is sound advice.


This video will introduce you to the basics of mini
site marketing. This will set the foundation that all
future learning will rest upon, so it's important to
pay close attention to this one.

You'll learn:

* What mini-sites are, and what makes them different
from regular content sites.

* Which businesses they work well for… and which ones
they don’t.

* The right mindset to have when it comes to creating
mini sites as part of your online business strategy.

* And the different tools you need to get started.

This was a great video, and did an excellent job of
kicking things off, and building the foundation for
the rest of the course.


This is probably one of the most useful videos of the
entire course. Every Internet marketer needs to build
an email list, but how do you do it? What is the best
way to capture the most opt-ins?

The answer is 'squeeze pages'. This video will teach

* Why using a squeeze page is far superior to other
opt-in methods.

the top of your squeeze page to skyrocket your opt-in

* The secret structure of a squeeze page, and why most
marketers get it wrong (which costs them a LOT of

* The most important to include in your opt-in process

After watching this video, you'll know everything you
need to know to start building a massive opt-in list
right away. This will probably be the first video that
you 'take action' on. You'll be so excited about the
possibilities, that I guarantee you'll go and create
your own squeeze page right away.


Nothing happens until the sales copy is written.
Graphics alone will never sell a product, but sales
copy alone WILL. This video begins to demystify the
mysterious process of writing words that make people
whip out their credit cards and buy.

Specifically, you'll learn:

* Why you need to learn copywriting, even if you “hate
to write”

* What a compelling offer looks like, and how to tell
the difference.

* How to write an eyeball-grabbing headline that
practically forces your readers to go through your
entire page.

* A simple trick you can use in your opening to make
your reader want to learn more.

There is no skill that is more important to your
success than the ability to write killer sales copy.
Make sure you pay extra attention to this video, as
well as...


This video dives right into the individual components
of a killer sales letter. You'll learn how to create
the "secret structure" of a mini site sales letter
that makes big money. Specifically, you'll learn:

reader into the sales letter.

* Bullets that force your reader to keep reading the
whole page, and makes them insanely curious and want
to buy your product

they'll feel safe buying from you.

* How to craft your 'call to action', and get people
to whip out their credit cards and buy immediately.

* The secrets of writing a killer P.S. that helps seal
the deal, and flip your prospect into a buyer

This video covered a surprising amount of detail,
especially considering that this course is not
specifically about copywriting. Michael Rasmussen is
definitely someone who overdelivers in his educational


Unless you want to be chained to your computer, you
must learn how to put your mini sites on autopilot.
The only thing you should be doing is driving traffic,
and letting the site itself do all the work, including
the work of instantly delivering the product to the

This video will walk you through the process of
automating your product delivery, so you can just
relax, and collect the money. The best part is... once
you have this automated system set up, you never have
to touch it again.


This video is guaranteed to be an eye opener for
almost everyone who watches it, even the experienced
marketers. Michael dives into some of the most
effective 'upselling' techniques that I've ever seen.

Nowhere else on the Internet have I seen such a
thorough tutorial on how to increase the 'size' of
your orders. You'll learn:

* The psychology of 'upselling', and how to use it
make your customer spend even more money with you.
The best part? He'll think it was his idea!

* The absolute best time to upsell your customer. This
one will surprise you when you realize how much money
you've been leaving on the table by skipping this

* 5 simple techniques to increase your profit by up to

If you've already got a mini site that's up and
running, this video will make a big difference for you
right away. Use any of these 'plug and profit'
strategies to increase your income literally


If there's one thing I've noticed that all successful
marketers have in common, it's that they have a great
affiliate program. They create a program that allows
other people to make good money by promoting their
products, and they get to just sit back and relax,
while everyone else is doing the hard work of
promoting FOR them.

If you've ever dreamed of having an army of motivated
sales people working hard to make you money, then
you're going to love this video. Michael will teach

* What an affiliate program is, and how to set one up
very quickly.

* Exactly what tools you need to give your affiliates
(most people miss the mark here, so pay extra
attention to this part).

* Why merely having an affiliate program is NOT enough
to convince people to sign up, and what you can do
instead to have people eagerly trying to become one of
your affiliates.

* How to motivate affiliates to sell for you.


Let's face it... it's not enough to explain what you
should do. You also need to know what mistakes you
should avoid. Michael has already made these costly
mistakes, but you don't have to. You'll learn:

- Why people do judge a book by its cover... and how to
capitalize on that for your mini-site

- The single biggest reason people don’t buy from a
mini site, and how you can apply this 'instant fix'.

- The single biggest thing that will kill your
mini-site (it's not what you think, and making this
mistake is a surefire way to drain money from your
bank account FAST!)

- Two list building mistakes that’ll cripple your
long-term profits.


This video will walk you through the process of
designing a product line that will make you a TON of
money. There's a lot more to it than you'd think,
which is why this important concept (which was taken
from direct marketing) gets it's own video.

After watching this video, you'll understand why you
can't just have a single front end product, and you'll
know exactly what to do in order to get your customer
to keep buying more and more expensive products from
you... completely on autopilot!

This video is a MUST for any serious marketer who
wants to make a lot of money from their online


The title of this video says it all. You'll learn
all of Michael's secrets for getting top notch
freelancers to help you create your mini site empire
in record time.

Let's face it, you can't be an expert at everything
that mini sites require. For example, it's really
tough to be a top notch graphic designer, while also
mastering HTML, and then becoming a killer
copywriter, on top of also creating the product

And the list goes on and on. If you want to be
efficient, and begin making money as fast as
possible, outsourcing is the secret to making it
happen. This video will show you exactly what to do,
as well as some common (and very expensive) pitfalls
to avoid.


Let's face it... it doesn't matter how great your
mini site is if you don't get any traffic coming to
it. Getting traffic can be one of the most confusing
and mysterious parts of making money online IF you
don't get the proper education.

Thankfully, Michael really dives in, and gives you a
lightning fast education in this area. Specifically,
you'll learn:

* How to use Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising to get
targeted traffic fast.

other people to explode your traffic.

Internet Marketing Tips - Take Baby Steps To Home Business Success

Starting, and then running, a successful home business
is a dream and a goal for many of you.

Many times this goal seems to be as unattainable as
you walking on the moon.

Well, starting and running a home business is definitely
not like that.

So how do you find the time to achieve home business success

Yep, take baby steps to make your home based business a
rewarding and profitable success.

Slow down. Do not expect "overnight wealth".

It is just not going to happen that way.

You must have the conviction to stay your course and
have the patience to see your goals come to fruition.

In addition, consider relying on God to give you guidance
and patience during the process of building your home based
business. You may even want to try and find a stable and
solid online Christian business to pursue.

Take baby steps by defining and reaching small tasks
for your business on a daily basis.

You can't do everything at once. It is impossible.

Take your time and enjoy what you are doing.

Remember why you wanted your own home business in the first
place... to have and enjoy the freedom.

Once you understand that taking baby steps can and
will work, only then will you realize the beauty of
home business success.

Internet Marketing Tips - Offline Marketing For Easy Online Profits

Today, you are going to discover three super ways to
advertise your Online business "Offline" and keep the
online profit rolling.

The main point you must remember is this...

Yes, you have an online business, but you do not have
to limit yourself and your business to just this one
medium of advertising.

The key to any successful business is to diversify, and
one way to do this is by finding other advertising
outlets and continue reaping the profits.

So lets move on and see just how you can do this...

#1 Newspaper advertising

Without a doubt newspapers will never go away. Even with
the popularity of email people still like to pick up their
trusty ink rag and give it a good read.

Newspaper advertising can be a very inexpensive way to
bring in fresh leads to your website.

Simply use the "classified ad" section in the back of
your local paper.

Place a small ad pertaining to your Online business
and then insert your webpage address(URL) instead of your
address or phone number.

I have run many profitable newspaper campaigns and I can
tell you that they work!

For a great listing of inexpensive newspapers to place
your ads, try

#2 Magazines

The power of a good magazine ad is undeniable.

While this form of offline advertising may be a bit
more expensive, the numbers you can do with magazine
ads are incredible.

With this type of Offline advertising you want to do
the same as you would with a newspaper.

Place a small classified in the back of the
publication and insert your webpage address(URL).

There are hundreds of magazines covering a wide range
of subjects.

Just go down to your favorite newsstand or bookstore
and pick up a few that pertain to your Online

Look in the back at the classifieds. Find out the
price and place an ad!

#3 Tabloids

Yes the National Enquirer, The Star, etc.

These gossip rags reach millions of readers and are a
great way to test a small classified for just about
any type of product or service.

They have reasonable rates and are well worth checking
in to.

One campaign I ran in "The Star" made me well over a
$5,000 profit!

Hey, you can probably find one these bad boys laying
around at your mother-in-laws house. :-)

Anyway, the above 3 offline marketing mediums should
not be overlooked.

Remember to keep your classified ads short and to the

Try keeping them to 10-15 words maximum.

Let your webpage do the selling.

Internet Marketing Tips - Marketing On The Internet Made Easy

One of the easiest and quickest money making ideas is
to market products and/or services on the internet.

Marketing on the internet isn't hard once you know a
few key methods to maximize your results.

To make the most of your efforts, you should have a
product that you own.

Whether your product is electronic or physical, it's
important that you control the outcome.

You make much more profit marketing on the internet
when you are the product developer and owner.

Once you've got a product ready, you'll want to write
up a short sales page.

This sales page will only be used to collect the name
and email address of visitors.

You'll want to have a powerful headline, a few short
paragraphs explaining a few of the key benefits.

Then ask for the visitors name and email address.

The only way to ensure you get their information is
to use an autoresponder, such as aweber

This little tool will be of great help to you when
you're marketing on the internet.

You can also do a search for autoresponders and pick the one
that best suits your needs and learn the basics of
setting them up.

Now that your short webpage is ready, you'll want to
get people to visit.

You can do this by using Pay Per Click advertising.

This is where you pay for each click on keywords you
have chosen that are related to your product subject.

The best place to do this is

Just click on the advertising program link and you'll
be taken through the simple set up process.

Once you've got visitors coming to your website, a
percentage of them will enter their information.

This will become your mailing list and will give you
the chance to keep following up with your prospects
if they don't order the first time around.

Following up with your prospects is the key to marketing
on the internet.

You should try and send helpful information to your
mailing list in the form of articles like the one you're
reading now.

You will also want to mix in promotional messages for
your product.

Try sending two helpful articles per week to your new
list, and then one time per week send them a message
letting them know about your product(s).

This way, you'll continue to build trust and make more

This is a very basic method for marketing on the internet.

List Building - List Building Is A Numbers Game

Building an opt in list simply means getting as
many targeted leads as you possibly can - for the
least amount of cost.

The more leads you add to your opt in list the
better your chances of making a profit.

Many top internet experts agree that you should
be able to profit at a minimum of .50 to one
dollar per subscriber on your main list and as
much as $8.00 to $10.00 per subscriber on your
customer list.

Your main list is considered your "warm list",
meaning the subscribers have raised their hand
and shown interest on your topic.

By sending them quality information and offers
over time, they will purchase from you.

This is your "customer list".

Your customer list is your "bread and butter
list". This list is full of proven buyers who
have actually spent money on a product or
service on your topic.

This list is gold and should be treated as such.

Be very selective with your offers to this list
and it will send you profits forever.

Simple math will show that having 3000 subscribers
on your main list should yield you around $1500.00
to $3000.00.

While your customer list if you've got 300 proven
buyers should profit at between $2400.00 and
$3000.00 per month.

If by chance you are not getting the above the numbers
with your opt in list, you need to take a closer
look at your subscribers and niche.

List building is nothing more than numbers and the
more subscribers you add, the more money you make.

Simple. Simple. Simple.

List Building And Article Marketing - List Building And Article Marketing For Beginners

Article marketing is one of the best ways to generate
traffic to your website, plus you can build an opt in
list, which is the all important task for your online

First of all, it's very easy to get started, all you need
to do is begin writing short articles that are related to
your topic.

The best type of article should be around 250-300 words
in length and offer useful content to your reader just
like the one you are reading right now.

If you keep your articles short, you can write many more
in a shorter amount of time.

Also, if you have an article that is around 600 words, break
it up into two parts. This way you get two articles for the
time it takes to create one.

Make sure you put a link at the end of your article that
leads your reader to your website where you will offer
some type of free gift in return for their name and
email address.

This is how you will build your all important opt in list.

Then submit your articles to the top 5 article directories.

For the best results, you should try to write and submit
5 articles per day to each of the top 5 article directories

A big mistake that beginning article marketers make is to think
that writing only 5 articles will be enough.

It takes many articles to gain maximum results and to build a
good opt in list.

Start with ... then do a google search for
"top article directories" to get a list of directories to
submit your articles to.

All you have to do is type in a few of your favorite key
words on your topic of interest and you'll find more than
enough forums to keep you busy.

For example, if you're interested in getting people to
join your list that have an interest in "growing the
best tomatoes", then you would do a search for "growing
tomatoes and forums".

Once you find a few that you like, sign up and study how
the people make posts.

Once you feel comfortable enough with posting, you can
then ask questions of other members.

You will also want to answer other questions that have
been posted by fellow members.

This way, you set yourself up as an "expert" in your

At the end of each of your posts, you'll want to add
a signature file.

This is nothing more than an ad that will get the readers
of your posts to visit your website.

Your website should be set up to offer a free report on
your topic.

In return for downloading your free report, your visitors
must give you their first name and email address.

This is called list building and is how you will eventually
turn these subscribers into customers through subsequent
email correspondence and promotion.

products that your recommend.

a money making machine. Treat your management of it as such.
