Free domain name
If you are considering taking up blogging or building an online business, I would not recommend using a free domain name. Some free domain names such as wordpress or Blogger are good, but they have limited functionality.
Take for instance a free wordpress domain would not let you host vital plugins on your website which aid your seo efforts such as meta tags. With a free domain name you can’t use these plugins.
Secondly such free domain names can be taken off you if you’re in breach of their terms and conditions. Which means years of hard work could be taken from you in an instance.
That’s you its always best to get a hosted domain which is yours and can not be taken from you.
Writing ebooks for a living
I’m someone who just loves to write especially when I’m sharing useful valuable content.
As an Internet marketer, one of the easiest way to start making money online is by writing ebooks for a living.
Ebooks are easy to write. The first thing you want to do is wrote out your thoughts on what you want to write about. This is just plain old pouring out your heart. Now that you know what you want to write about, the next step is to do some keyword research.
Put your self in the shoes of your prospective reader. What keywords would they use to find your ebooks? These a the keywords you search for. Once you have got a few keywords with descent enough searches, then you can use some of these on an article or blog post that would point to your ebooks sales page.
Next thing you want to do is actually write your ebooks. There are different software you can use to create your ebook. I prefer to use OpenOffice, this is exactly like Microsoft Word only it’s better and free. You can also convert your finished work to a PDF DOCUMENT which you’ll need to sell your ebook.
So you see you can write ebooks for a living.
Opt-ins – How To Get Every Visitor To Your Website To Subscribe To Your Newsletter
One thing that absolutely baffles me about some websites is that I can’t seem to understand the purpose of those sites especially when I see they’re trying to promote in the IM niche.
Their websites are so noisy that even as an experienced internet marketer, I can’t seem to see what exactly is the call to action. What specific purpose has the website being created for. There are banners everywhere, ads everywhere links pointing everywhere. Just so noisy.
Look, if you want to get every visitor that calls to your web-site to subscribe to your mailing list then do just that. Don’t try and cram everything into one website.
Look at this website for instance. It’s the plain wordpress template with no banners or ads. All you’ll find here is great content and one call to action. Subscribe to my newsletter.
In the newsletter i can then put all the other stuff once I’ve shown and proved I’m credible to help build your business.
This site gets lots of targeted visitors. In fact every visitor to this website has opted in to the newsletter. It’s that effective. And I’ve changed nothing. All I do is upload fresh content daily which is unique and valuable and leave the rest to the big G.
Please don’t make the same mistakes. Keep your websites simple. Have a defined purpose for your visitors. Give a clear call to action. Build up your list.
