Affiliation the Quickest Way to Get Started Online

Yes, your online content will be packed with free tips and techniques and secret weapons for becoming the next internet marketing millionaire.

However, it can be very time consuming especially if you are just starting to build your online business. The arrival of the Internet has made the tasks of promoting your business much easier than before.

You get instant feedback with your advertising that in times gone by would have taken months if not years to obtain. The same sort of results that now can take as little time as a few minutes with Google ad words can achieve the same results, saving you time and money.

Some of the benefits of an online business: the most inexpensive way to start a business, unlimited market for your products or services, automatic streams of constantly growing income (otherwise known as passive income), more time you are able to spend with your family and loved ones as a result. So ask yourself what products can I offer that are of interest. What type of product can I sell that will take the hassle out of making money online what can I sell that will give my customers instant gratification and solve my prospect's problem, the answer is electronic downloadable product with instant access 24/7. 

If your ads or products do not clearly spell this out, and tell the customer how you will give them what he/she desires, most times you will not make the sale, if you go down the path of selling hard product then you are going to require a customer service department, or shipping department, then you must see how many people you will need to employ.

If your selling digital downloads then you don’t need any of the above you can set up your business and it will run on automatic.

While it is true that other major search engines have also recently launched similar tools, Google remains in a class of its own in terms of what it can deliver and the sheer experience of being the premier and largest search engine provider.

The truth is that an affiliate needs fairly high levels of traffic to make money from any online affiliate business opportunity. An Affiliate Program Can Help Your Business. The truth is that there is a lot of hard work in terms of setting up structures and driving traffic to your affiliate site that needs to be done over a period of time before the money can start to roll in thick and fast.

This is the reason why most people who register to join a top 10 online business opportunity affiliate program usually give up somewhere along the way. There is probably no online business opportunity today that is more viable than joining an affiliate program or two. In fact it has now become clear that chances of online business success are much higher with an affiliate program opportunity than by trying to launch your own new product or service. Small companies do it to become big while big sites do it to retain their position.

Casting aside the more technical programming jargon, the most important things to making money online in terms of SEO is inbound links and good content on your website.

Have some Meaningful Content about your Keyword or Keyword Phrase. You need to have meaningful content that the Search engines can use to determine if your product is relevant to what the search terms are that people are typing in there browsers.

The engines are getting much smarter about robotic page generated sites that are not able to be read by humans and are only there to trick the search engines, pages like this are a thing of the past, these days the more relevant the information you provide to people through your web site the more success you will have. This is not a lesson on search engines but given the amount of content based on the one word 'SEO' you can begin to understand how popular this idea is.

In conclusion affiliation is the quickest way to get stated online and you need relative content to what it is that you are selling, all matched to the key words that people are using to find what they are looking for. This with the determination to succeed and a little hard work and you’re on the way to setting up our own online empire.

How to Create Unique Content to Build Your Blog’s Authority

This is a guest contribution from Julie Petersen.

With so much information on the web these days, the competition for high-quality content is strong – and it’s growing.

unique blog content

You can’t always introduce new topics to your target audience, since influential bloggers have already written tons of content on the issues you have in mind. There is a trick though: you don’t necessarily need an original idea to craft unique content. You can always develop your own piece by adding the right dose of creativity into any topic your audience is interested in.

For example, let’s say you’re running a lifestyle blog and you’ve exhausted all topics about getting inspired, finding a purpose in life, achieving goals, and all other themes that are usual for these types of blogs. You can take the good-old idea on giving goal planning tips, but you can add a different angle. Here are few examples:

  • How Blogging Can Help You Plan and Achieve Life Goals
  • Do You Really Need a Calendar for Planning?
  • How Plans Can Prevent Procrastination

Or, you can relate your niche with the concept of blogging, so you’ll give tips to other bloggers. In this case, the topic could be something like Unusual Methods for Planning Blog Posts. There are endless variations and spins you can think of.

You may find several other online posts when you get such an idea, but your individual approach will make it different. How can you think outside the box to bring a new angle to a tired topic?

This blog post takes the traditional theme of planning and connects it to something unconventional: pet birthdays, fan conventions, and divorce parties. It’s a nice example of how you can give new life to a boring topic.

Remember: it’s definitely possible to achieve originality and a substantial following. However, it’s going to take hard work and practice. Read on; we have some tips that will help you with that!

Why is unique content so hard to find?

There is a simple answer to that question: huge competition.

It doesn’t matter what your blogging niche is and what topic you have in mind; your audience can probably find tons of other resources when googling the keywords you used.

That being said, it’s clear why it’s hard to find entirely unique content if you limit the term unique to something that’s available from a single author. Even if you think of a topic that has never been covered before, other bloggers will get inspired by it and they will take it further with their own ideas, so it won’t be that unique any longer.

Does that mean you should give up on blogging? Of course not! You see, there is a trick: the term unique is quite flexible in its essence. You can still work on an evergreen topic and bring something fresh on the table. You only need to reveal your individual style and think of some original ideas.

Matthew Inman’s The Oatmeal is a great example of how boring or mainstream topics can get really fun when you add a twist.

Why unique content is important 

If you don’t serve anything new for your audience, you won’t be special for them. They don’t want to read the same old tips over and over again.

For example, let’s say you’re writing a post that’s supposed to help people surpass mild depression. Instead of writing cliché tips like “read a book, watch a movie, take a walk, talk to friends, and meditate,” you can suggest something radical, like “quit the job that’s making you miserable and start your own business.” – but you better be ready to back it up!

You can also link the theme with celebrities; that often works really well. Untitled3

The reality of search engine optimization (SEO) is essential to understand

Without satiating and unique content, your site will not receive the search results you want. Search engines value your content as much as your viewers. And ultimately, you will need exposure in search engines to achieve success.

A search engine measures uniqueness a bit differently than your readers do. Your audience needs fresh ideas, but Google needs non-plagiarized content. In other words – do not copy someone else’s work!

Your content needs to include strategically-placed keywords and phrases as well and clear, well-written human copy.

Keywords in the right places are indicators to search engines, which will help them to classify your site and target the appropriate viewers during searches. Don’t overstuff your piece with keywords, though. When you use too many keywords that your audience can easily recognize, they will affect the overall uniqueness of your post.

Valuable content will increase your expertise and authority

In addition to search engines, you need to consider your readers. Search engines will give your blog/website higher SEO rankings if your content is seen as an “authority”. To achieve this status, your posts need backlinks, as well as a steady and large number of visitors (who maintain long view times).

When you give readers something of substance, you are more likely to retain them as consistent visitors. When they get used to your blog, they will perceive your content as unique even when there are tons of similar articles on the web. They will always read yours first. If, for example, someone is looking for articles related to digital, social media, and technology, they are most likely to visit Mashable as an authoritative blog in the niche, since they know they will always find something valuable there.

Think of it this way: if you read informative articles of great value, you’re most likely to bookmark those sites for future use. That’s the effect you want to achieve with your own posts.

How to create unique content 

You will need to begin each post with a great idea, however, this can be difficult to achieve on a consistent basis.

First, you must understand that high-quality, original content requires various areas of focus. Don’t narrow your mindset down to the specific niche you’ve chosen; make sure to research other areas of interest and connect them with topics relevant to your audience.

Review the following guidelines to get started.

1. Idea Generation

If you’re creating site content, then you probably have ample experience and knowledge in a specific area to produce quality work (and a foundation to back it up). However, that does not always mean you can create intriguing titles, headlines or unique ideas.

It’s normal to face a point of low inspiration. Below are some of the best online destinations that help you find ideas for unique posts.

Online generators

TweakYourBiz is a great option that quickly provides hundreds of ideas (separated into categories like lists, bests and problems) for writers with a simple keyword search. Not all of these suggestions will seem logical, but at least they will inspire you to find a twist to the theme you plan to cover.

Other tools, such as Coschedule’s Headline Analyzer and AMI’s Emotional Value Headline Analyzer, will help you choose the most efficient headline when you have few alternatives on your mind.

Blogs

Expand your imagination and check out blogs outside your given niche. Even if a blog is completely off-topic from your own, you will be surprised to find unrelated areas of interest intersect and inspire new ideas. Then, you need to relate those ideas to your own niche, and you’ll come up with a unique topic for your piece.

For example, let’s say you find an awesome blog post about the importance of academic writing, but you’re running a blog related to business startups. You can infiltrate this ideas in your own editorial schedule with a post entitled How Academic Writing Made Me a Better Businessman.

Social Media

This is a great way to discover what’s trending in your blog’s subject matter. If people are talking about it and reading about it, then you need to provide them with your perspective. Maybe the idea won’t be 100% unique, but your own point of view will make it original.

2. Adequate Research

Once you get some strong ideas, it’s time to research properly. You don’t want to give your readers false information and you don’t want to tarnish your status either.

Start by using Google and search your blog idea or title. The results will be your first exposure to the competition. Review the top results and look for the following:

  • Check for clarity and flow. Is the article informative and interesting? Does it flow naturally? If it’s believable and factual, you can add it as a resource in your post.
  • Be attentive and check the date on the posts as well. If the posts are newer, they will seem more relevant to your audience.

It’s also imperative to keep your research organized. The popular app Evernote is a great source for storage. The tool connects on all devices and users can save anything from video and audio files, to online articles, images and more. Have you heard the latest news? Evernote now allows you to pin the content you locate online. That’s awesome, since you’ll get an even better overview of the sources of inspiration you find.

When you keep track of all resources, you won’t risk using someone else’s unique ideas just because you forgot where they came from.

Remember: get inspired by the research; do not copy the content you found!

3. Editing and proofreading

Once you’ve drafted a post, it’s time to edit. You should never publish a first draft. This disregards an essential part of the process and will greatly affect the authority of your site content. Use the following tips to get started:

You should make sure to check the uniqueness of your piece during the editing process. Use online tools like Plagtracker to be sure your content is 100% original.

When writing for the web, your articles must be engaging, but also concise and to the point. The attention span in the digital world is short, regardless of the audience you’re targeting. If you post boring, unclear content, it won’t matter how unique it is… not many people will read it.

Use tools like The Hemingway app for help. The tool highlights issues like complex sentences and adverb usage, and it provides an overall readability score.

Read your content out loud to yourself. This can show you repeated or misplaced words that you missed while reading quietly to yourself. It’s also a great check for flow and natural tone. Repetitiveness affects a reader’s impression for uniqueness, so make sure to get rid of it.

No matter what topic you are covering, your content should always be created with passion, motivation and honesty. Every content creator should be using these tips and tools to enhance the creation process and come up with unique pieces of content.

3 Social Media Marketing Goals For SMO Success

When using any marketing strategies, social media marketing has become the best medium utilized by many businessmen and entrepreneurs. For some businesses, having social media accounts does not change their sales marketing nor does their online business improve. What are the reasons their social media marketing efforts are not providing them the outcomes they were seeking?

 

Solving the 10 Most Common Social Media Marketing Challenges https://t.co/9zKA3tJETX via @buffer pic.twitter.com/ZtY89HBIw4

— SocialMedia Examiner (@SMExaminer) June 1, 2016

 

It may be that the methods they are using are not ideal. Maybe they are making the same social media marketing errors as other companies. Social network marketing goals must be set. Various companies use social media differently, depending on their goals. What is the purpose of the campaign? Brand recognition? Customer relations? Increased revenue?

They must know their audience, acknowledge their presence, and build their trust. Because the audience must believe that they are very important, social media interaction is required. Social media marketing is undoubtedly the best method used by any online business. Defining the goals is the key to a successful effort. Know the purpose, define the target audience, and interact with the audience to understand and deliver what they want.

Solution for Generational Poverty: Inbound Marketing (Social Entrepreneurship)

Solution for Generational Poverty: Inbound Marketing (Social Entrepreneurship) 

The Welfare State continues to grow in volume not only due to the legacy of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society (War On Poverty) but, ironically thanks to the Internet and advances in software technology.  Yes, sounds contradictory but, there are unintended consequences for great technological advances that benefited and continue to improve the lives of millions of Americans.  If, you look at the poorest sectors of American society the War On Poverty ironically, contributed to the breakup of many families but, especially among those within the African American community.  Imagine, the basic economic unit of all communities (families) suffered the greatest harm due to government intervention that was designed to theoretically fix the very problem that impaired millions of families from upward economic mobility. 

Now, the removal of father from the family home was designed to break-up the family and keep “certain people” under the control of state welfare agencies, police and department of corrections.  Indeed, money or more accurately, welfare benefits were used to incentivize women to dispose of the father of their children and replace him with the new husband called the State.  Not exactly, what one would call Traditional Family Values but, more accurately, ethnic genocide.  Historically, the practice is quite common as indicated by countless examples of familial destruction executed against people of color (Aborigines of Australia, Maori’s of New Zealand, Indigenous people of North America (Canada & America), Inuit’s and African Americans).  What better approach to defeat a perceived threat than by attacking the thing most important to him and that’s his family.  Government knows this and will act.        

Just read the Moynihan Report and it reveals generational systemic oppression inflicted upon people of primarily African descent and collateral social problems (familial, financial, legal, emotional, educational and psychological) that still disproportionately affect the current and future generation (i.e.,72% illegitimacy rate) unless, significant intervention is implemented.  Clearly, government intervention has proven to be ineffective because government in truth, profits from problems and not solutions.   

So, the Rich get Richer, Poor Get Prison and the cycle continues to explode exponentially thanks to a digitized economy that has enabled corporations to transfer jobs overseas, generate profits that exceed the GDP of many small countries, while influencing or more accurately, controlling government officials who are responsible for regulatory laws that govern the same industries they receive political donations from, while supposedly protecting the public.  Needless to say, corporations control the politicians, while the poor are controlled or more accurately, dependent on the government who are not motivated to reduce the generational Poverty Mindset that permeates todays families of the generational poor.  Yes, this is true; otherwise, government workers would be out of a job because there would be no problem.

So, what’s the SOLUTION to the problem of the Generational Poor? How do you change or begin the process of reducing/eliminating a poverty mentality of an entire generation and prevent its spread?   Since, the Internet and related innovations in software technology have yielded benefits for corporations and other who have increased their knowledge in information technology then, I recommend the poor do the same with a personal development slant.  Let’s focus on marketing especially, Inbound Marketing.  You got it right, my solution to poverty lies in the concept of marketing.

Now, Inbound Marketing provides multiple components (entrepreneurship, marketing and self -development) that will enhance the ability of the generational poor to improve their quality of life.  Now, let’s remember that “Inbound Marketing refers to activities (blogs, podcasts, eBooks, SEO, physical products, newsletters, whitepapers, social medial marketing and other forms of content marketing) that bring visitors in, rather than marketers having to go out to get prospects' attention”.  “Inbound marketing earns the attention of customers”.  I agree, doesn’t sound convincing with reference to solving a significant social problem like poverty; however, becoming an Inbound Marketing Specialist requires the individual to begin the process of self-development by working on themselves.  Yes, changing the way they think about themselves.   

The late business philosopher Jim Rohn, famously said, “you get paid for the value you bring to the marketplace and not the time you spend in it”.  In other words, “make yourself more valuable to the marketplace” and you do that by working harder on yourself than you do working on the job”.  “This is why personal development plays a vital role in your success as indicated by the fact, it is a lifelong process. It's a way for people to assess their skills and qualities, consider their aims in life and set goals in order to realize and maximize their potential”.  In life you are on a timeline to accomplish certain goals and tasks; otherwise, you are guilty of a wasted life. Clearly, nothing to be proud of nor brag about.  So, do you see the potential benefit of incorporating inbound marketing as a solution to reducing poverty.  Yes, I am marginally advocating CSR or better known as Corporate Social Responsibility, where business enters into a partnership to assist in the reduction or hopefully, resolution of a social problem while, generating a profit.  In essence, it’s about reframing a social problem (Generational Poverty) into a business opportunity to create a WIN-WIN for all participants involved.  Many people are no longer referring to Corporate Social Responsibility and more receptive to the term Social Entrepreneurship.  So, what is Social Entrepreneurship?  Well, I will address the term in my next blog.  For now, Cheers!

The changing Internet

The Changing Internet

The changing Internet

I am at present in the middle of break in my Internet Marketing, the first in some 15 years and plan to return later in the year. I have been keeping a watching brief on the development of MarketHive which has been under way for more than two years.

I am impressed with the progress and the attention to detail in the design which makes it easy to use and understand. Tom Prendergast and his small team are creating a system which will become the envy of the world. Many are asking when the system will be launched, well it is available now but there are still parts of the system which need refining due to the ever changing nature of marketing on the Internet.

One area I am happy with is the intuitive way the system has been designed and seamlessly integrates together to the benefit of users. This became apparent to me when I attended a couple of workshops last week about adding a third party plug-in to WordPress in order to post to social media sites. A number of users had difficulty understanding, the instructions for setting up the plug in due to the poor non user friendly design. Needless to say the essential workshop provided by Tom worked through most of the problem area.

One thing I have learnt is that if you stop using the Internet, when you return, its not the same, companies make so called improvement, one of my hosting companies changed it C-panel set up and I keep getting stymied when trying to update information, and they this progress.

Understanding Educational Technology

Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but the trend of learners educating themselves is on a continuous upward movement. The reasons may include freedom to choose, no fear of questions being asked, learning at one's own pace and place, absorbing at one's own capacity and much more. The self-learning trend has been empowered by cutting edge educational technology innovation. social learning and education in technology 

what is social learning

Educational technology has started facilitating learning from the time of Abacus to the current generation e-learning / m-learning. It has gone through multiple changes while adjusting itself to the current generation's demand.

Helping people learn in ways that are easier, faster, surer, or less expensive can be traced back to the emergence of very early tools, such as abacus. The human race has been continuously challenged to educate its next generation in a more effective manner for equipping them to face future challenges. This pursuit of constant upgradations for better learning received a big push with the introduction of computers. In the very early days of computers in education, the University of Illinois initiated a classroom system based in linked computer terminals where students could access informational resources on a particular course while listening to the lectures that were recorded via some form of remotely linked device like a television or audio device, in the year 1960. There was no looking back since then. All kind of experiments started in world renowned universities like Stanford and Harvard for computer assisted teaching. In the mean time in 1971, an influential Austrian philosopher named Ivan Illich published a hugely influential book called, ' Deschooling Society ', in which he envisioned "learning webs" as a model for people to network the learning they needed. Ivan envisioned the power of networked learning way ahead of his time but everyone realizes the power of social / network learning, now.

The invention of World Wide Web in 1990 was the next big thing after computers. After this invention, learning changed radically. Anyone could create text based websites / portals with loads of information / learning material which anyone from any part of the world could read, digest and use. This democratizes the access to any information / learning and its usage. Improved Internet functionality enabled new schemes of communication with multimedia or webcams. Multimedia powered by the internet is slowly proliferating every aspect of learning and quietly disrupting this space. Multimedia content is more fun, more engaging and better to assimilate that text-based content. The other most important aspect is the method of learning which is asynchronous in nature. Asynchronous learning uses technologies such as email, blogs, wikis, and discussion boards, as well as web-supported textbooks, audio-video courses, and social networking using web 2.0 (Web 2.0 describes websites that emphasize user-generated content, usability, and interoperability). Everyone can now realize the impact of all of the above-mentioned technologies in their learning process.

The impact of the mass / social media is the result of a long adaptation process of their communicative resources to the evolutionary changes of each historical moment. Thus, the new media became an extension of the traditional media on the cyberspace, allowing to the public access information in a wide range of digital devices. In other words, it is a cultural virtualization of human reality as a result of the migration from physical to virtual space (mediated by the ICTs), ruled by codes, signs, and particular social relationships, inside and outside the classroom. Forwards, arise instant ways of synchronous and asynchronous communication, interaction and possible quick access to information, in which we are no longer mere senders, but also producers, reproducers, co-workers, and providers. New technologies also help to “connect” people from different cultures outside the virtual space, which was unthinkable fifty years ago. In this giant relationships web, we mutually absorb each other’s beliefs, customs, education, values, laws and habits, cultural legacies perpetuated by a physical-virtual dynamics in constant metamorphosis.

The impact of social media on everyone's learning is undeniable. The National School Boards Association found that 96% of students with online access have used social networking technologies, and more than 50% talk online about schoolwork. Social networking encourages collaboration and engagement and can be a motivational tool for self-efficacy amongst students. Every student has his or her own learning requirements, and a Web 2.0 educational framework can provide enough resources, learning styles, communication tools, and flexibility to accommodate this diversity.

A highly interesting possibility emerges out from all of the above. A combination of Ivan's vision of "learning webs" as a model for people to network the learning they needed, with the need of a Web 2.0 educational framework based on social network and real-time multimedia technologies. Can this combination be a disruptive learning model for the future? Only Time can answer this question.

Can Inbound Marketing using Markethive give your business a boost?

Inbound marketing is now a trending topic in business, but it has actually been around for quite a while.  It has been used by savvy marketers to effectively attract and keep their audience.  This is the opposite from traditional media such as TV where everyone used to have to watch the same show at the same time,

The trend towards personalization and inbound marketing where anyone can choose which video to watch, which blog post to read, and which content they choose to subscribe is not going away anytime soon, and is here to stay.  Would anyone trade in their smart tv with recording capability and on demand media for their old tv with the rabbit ears?  Not a chance. Would anyone turn in their state-of-the-art smart phone for a land-line phone.  

It is not just about having the latest technology.  It is the availabilility of the content and the way it is delivered that is truly revolutionary.  The days of smoky back rooms of admen deciding what content to deliver are long gone.

Now with the development of social media, it seems as though the content factories have gone into overdrive.  Companies are scrambling now to put out content that can lure their prospects and customers into liking and sharing any kind of mediocre content the company wants to push out there.  Well, how long can people show interest in boring, uninteresting stuff?  Content may be king, but if you only produce junk, you will become the king of junk. 

Suppose you had a plaftorm that could connect all of your social networks together, that would be something desirable, right?  In addition if you had a group of people that had like minded interests, and you could share each others content on your blog, sort of like guest posting, but it would happen automatically. You could lessen your own burden of content creation, right?  And suppose you could automatically connect groups on your social networks with content that you create on your own blog, that would also be a way to extend the reach of your content, right?  If you start to get the picture of how content can spread in this way, then you are beginning to get the idea of Markethive.
