3 Ways to Build Volume Targeted Traffic



You can build a website but unless you know how to bring traffic to that site, you will fail. In fact, itís the number one reason why those that are website beginners fail. You don't need tricks to get the traffic; you just need proven techniques that will ensure you not only get tons of traffic, but that you get traffic that's targeted. After all, it doesn't help you if you have thousands of visitors a day that are looking to buy hammers and you are selling dresses.

#1 Create Content That is Valuable

If you place content on your website that is interesting, engaging, and worthy of the time it takes for your visitor to read it, youíll get traffic. You need to provide value and when you do this in a manner that is genuine, that traffic will flow, and you will get what your site needs to be a success.

The content you place on your site should be relevant to the products or services you are offering. Think about what it is you want to share with people and what type of an effect do you want to have on them. Your goal might be to change the way people think about a particular product or it might be to get them to take action about a particular service. When you take the time to focus on providing real value youíll be rewarded with relevant traffic that grows and builds.

#2 Make Sure Your Content is Original

You do not want to borrow content from other sites, even with their permission, because thatís just the same information going around and around. Thereís nothing there to entice surfers to visit your site as they likely already saw that same content.

You also donít want content thatís been ìspun,î which means it's been taken from somewhere on the web, ran through some software, and produced what appears to be new content because of a few changes, but really is still the same old information going around and around again.

What you want is fresh, new content thatís written from scratch by a quality writer. If that person isnít you, then hire a writer. You can do this for a very affordable price. You want to make sure that even if you are presenting the same basic information that you do it in a manner that leaves your visitor feeling like they learned something new.

#3 Create Content Thatís Timeless

What this means is the content you write today should be relevant a month from now, a year from now, even a number of years from now. When you do this, you create the greatest value for your website and you also reduce the amount of work your site needs because the content doesnít have to be constantly replaced because it has become old.

There three main points will help you get your website on track right from the beginning.

How to Choose Keywords for Your Website



Keywords are critical to the success of your website. You should have between 20 and 40 keywords/keyword phrases to ensure you have chosen a broad enough topic to build a successful website on. When you pick the keywords that are most profitable, you can bring the right targeted traffic to your site.

Expanding your keyword list can be done using some of the many tools that are available, such as Google Keyword Tool. It is a great way to get some excellent keyword ideas. It will provide you with a list of potential keywords and keyword phrases. You can get a more accurate idea by using Match Types and by choosing the Phrase option.

Expanding Your Keywords

For example, use the word cat and ëcat foodí as the keyword phrase ñ you will get just over 1,300,000 searches so that would make it worth expanding further on. Then let us say you search cat food and you discover the number of searches is over 2,000,000 so you can see how this could be a better choice because more people are searching.

Find Related Keywords

It is really easy to do your keyword research focusing on terms that are commonly used by those who are already familiar with the topic. But you shouldnít stop at this point. There are always tons of other words that should be considered. This is the reason why it is so important to research all the phrases by looking at synonyms and words that are related.

After you find the keywords that are right for you, and with tons of potential, you should add them to your keyword list, along with the number of times they have been searched. Your list should be pretty extensive by now.

Calculate the Keyword Potential

To calculate the keyword's potential you need to figure out how many searches there have been using the Google Keyword tool in comparison to how much competition there is. For your first keyword/ keyword phrase; take the number in the search column and divide by the number in the competition column. This provides you with a rough idea of the potential that keyword can offer.† Multiply this number by 1000 to make your results easier to analyze.

Choosing Your Keywords Choose the keywords with the highest potential, and use those in your search engine optimization. Start to enjoy the benefits of targeted traffic to your website.

Tips for Choosing a Good Domain Name for your New Website



Before you rush out to the internet and grab a domain name for your website, there are some things you should consider.

Your Website Name and Domain Name Should Be the Same

It is always best if you can name your domain and your website the same. Having the domain that matches your website makes it easier for those who are looking for you to find you. For example, if you think of Wal-Mart you would think of a URL that has the name Wal-Mart in it. Of course, if you are just beginning your business and you canít get the URL that matches your site name youíll have to consider other options.

How Long Should Your Domain Name Be?

You can have a domain name that is up to 67 characters, so you donít have to settle from short abbreviated URL thatís obscure to your visitors. There still seems to be a lot of banter over whatís better a short or long domain name. Some believe shorter ones are easier to type and there are fewer mistakes, while others argue that a long domain name is easier to remember because it will include keywords. For example, what would you find easier? TheBigBrownBusofDogs.com or TBBBD.com

Whatís the right choice? Go for one that best allows you to use keywords from your website name.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of a Hyphened Name

Advantages
* Search engines are able to pick out your keywords and thus help to place your site more appropriately. * The non-hyphenated version of your name may no longer be available, but the hyphenated is.

Disadvantages
* Itís easy to forget the hyphens when typing the site name.
* When people recommend your website, they have to remember that you need to put hyphens in the name.
* Hyphens tend to be a pain.

What to choose? COM, NET, CA, ORG, etc.

One of the most common questions that gets asked is what to choose for a domain extension. There are also specific top-level domains available such as ca, nu, de, etc., and it can be confusing whether thatís a better choice. The answer is ñ if your market is global probably not. If your market is local to a country, region, or city, these can work good for you. Remember internet users are most programmed to the common domain extensions.

Conclusion

Just in case all of this information began to overwhelm you, the key is to think about the domain you choose for your business, since changing it later is not easy. Then choose, buy, host, and move on.

Mastering The Golf Swing Audio Book



The golf swing is outwardly similar to many other motions involving swinging a tool or playing implement, such as an axe or a baseball bat; however, unlike many of these motions, the result of the swing is highly dependent on several sub-motions being properly aligned and timed, to ensure that the club travels up to the ball in line with the desired path, the clubface is in line with the swing path, and the ball impacts the centre or "sweet spot" of the clubface. The ability to do this consistently, across a complete set of clubs with a wide range of shaft lengths and clubface areas, is a key skill for any golfer, and takes a significant effort to achieve.

How To Use The Public Domain For Information Products



The only caveat to using public domain material is that you must check to make sure that the material you want to use is definitely in the public domain.

You need to insure that you are using the original public domain work as later versions of this work may possibly have been revised or annotated, and that adaptation could have been protected by copyright.

To explain this in an easier to understand manner, think of the original public domain work with a fresh layer of material added to it, and not just the same material written in a different way. The fresh layer is what has the copyright - NOT the public domain material.

So, to be on the safe side, it is wise to have and keep a printed copy of whatever original public domain work that you use for your information material so that if you are ever questioned about your eBook source material (which is highly doubtful) you have proof that you used the original works.

There are four main categories of public domain material that you can choose from to create your information product.

1. Plain, everyday "generic" information such as blank forms, titles, facts, ideas, numbers, etc.

2. Any written material that is still under copyright that has been donated or allowed to be used by permission of the author. Sometimes, out of the goodness of their heart, or for reasons unknown, authors will allow their work to be used regardless of whether or not it has a copyright.

3. Anything written or produced by the Federal government or anyone writing information and/or materials FOR the Federal government.

4. Any material that previously had a copyright, but lost it for one reason or another and is now in the public domain.

Excerpt from Make Money Selling Nothing

I well remember how excited I was when I first found out about public domain material. It was as if my fairy godmother had waved her magic wand and spilled open a treasure chest in front of me! I spent several hours that first evening in mute fascination, just looking through the lists and lists of books on every subject imaginable, articles, pamphlets, and other information that I could hardly believe I could actually use to develop into an information product.

Then, when I discovered that there were several online libraries containing more public domain material than I could ever read in a lifetime, I was hooked. I knew I was onto something really big, and the very next day I was galvanized into action.

I selected a public domain work and developed it into a short but information packed eBook in just one day. I chose this particular information because it blended beautifully with another information product I already had on my web site for sale.

I used it as an upsell (remember our definition of this term above?) to this information product that had been selling for me on a fairly steady basis. I offered this upsell for $9.99, in addition to the $39.99 for the eBook already on the site, and sat back to see what would happen.

In a couple of days, I was shocked and very, very pleased! Sales of my eBook had not only picked up dramatically, but 45 % of the people who bought it also bought the upsell eBook for an additional $9.99! I actually got emails thanking me for the information in the upsell eBook!

I then did another experiment. I chose another public domain book and gave it out for free as a bonus along with another information product I was selling. That free bonus was irresistible, I guess, and since the only way people believed they could get it was to buy my eBook, sales for this one soared as well. To say I was thrilled is an understatement indeed!

But, enough about me and my success with using public domain material. We're here to help YOU use this material to craft an information product that will make a ton of money for you! In a shorter time than you ever dreamed possible, you will have an information product of your own all written and ready to sell. Are you ready? Let's get started!

Why Sell Information Products



If you have been pulling your hair out looking for a way to make money online, the search is over! One of the easiest ways to make money is by writing and selling information products in electronic book form. This is the ultimate product for online sales, simply because the potential is enormous!

An electronic book, as you may already know, is not a traditional book that you can turn the corner of one page down to mark your place. (Yes, I am guilty of that!) It is a regular computer file, no different from the hundreds of other files you may have on your hard drive except that it is structured to look and read like a traditional book. You can either read an electronic book on the monitor of your computer, or print it out so that it is portable.

An electronic book can be viewed on any type or brand of computer. You can send them as email attachments or download them from the Web. Electronic books are extremely versatile! They take up very little room on a hard drive. Some people have hundreds of eBooks on their computer - a library that they personally chose.

DIGITAL SELF-PUBLISHING

Digitally self-publishing an eBook is quite different from publishing a traditional book. With a traditional book, you have to pay the costs of any printing yourself if you choose to self-publish. Then, if the book does well and you need to reprint, you have to pay those costs again, which eats into your profits. If you have the goal of having your book published the customary way by a big-name publishing house, get ready for a long wait.

First, your book has to be approved. That can take a year or more, if it happens at all! Most people who have the dream of publishing their book have a folder full of rejection letters to show for their efforts. If by chance your book is approved, it is not published right away. There's a wait for that, too. All told, it could be several years before your book hits the market, and even more time before you see any profit from your labor!

There are no printing costs, and very little waiting time involved with publishing an eBook. Statistics show that eBooks sell better than audio books and paperback books, and information eBooks sell best of all.

Low cost, high profits and no headaches makes for a clean and profitable business

Being Creative With Public Domain Material



Today I will share with you a snippet from an eBook published on how to be creative while creating information products from public domain material. Enjoy!

Fasten your seat belts - this is going to be a wild ride! No, not really! But the speed in which you will have a finished information product on the screen in front of you ready to market to the public is going to make you think that a rocket sled had something to do with it!

Remember how we learned earlier that people who are desperate for information to solve a problem that they may be having will end up being some of your best customers, just as long as your information product can give them the answers they are seeking and help them out of what they perceive as dire straits?

Remember how we talked about the need to discover a niche market - over and over? You'll find that each individual problem that you create an information product for can be its OWN niche. Often, you can spin off some of these problems and write a second and even a third eBook about the same general subject.

When you do this, you are almost assured of good sales, because the people you helped solve problems for trust you and your writing now. They believe in you, and anything else you write on the subject that interests them will be seen as a "good thing", and they will probably want to purchase other eBooks you write on the subject.

Here's a good example. A couple of years ago, I wrote an information product in eBook form on how to housebreak a puppy or a seemingly un-trainable adult dog in 2 weeks, guaranteed. It sold like wildfire.

I suppose there must be a lot of people out there who are having trouble housebreaking their dog! About 6 months after the release of my housebreaking eBook, I pulled some material from the public domain (a U.S. government publication) about traveling with your dog. I changed the wording around a bit, and added some writing of my own. By the way, this is known as a derivative work as the finished product was derived from the original public domain material.

By the time I was done with this eBook, it had turned out to be a nice little doggie travel guide complete with descriptions and the toll free reservation numbers of pet-friendly hotels and motels across the United States. I pitched it to the dog lovers on my mailing list, most of whom had purchased my previous eBook (more on mailing lists later in the book - they are a fantastic marketing tool!) and gave them a link that sent them to the sales page (we'll get to that later as well) for the eBook. Roughly 45 percent of my mailing list purchased this little book for $19.95, and it was all made up of free information they could have found for themselves, but chose not to for one reason or another.

I think you would agree that vacations and housebreaking are far from being in the same niche! Yet, both subjects addressed a need in the lives of these pet owners. My purpose for veering a little off subject here is to point out to you that had I not ventured out of my dog training niche, I would not be having the continued sales of my dog travel guide. Don't limit yourself! With each subject you choose to write an information product about, try to think out of the box. Be creative, and watch your profits grow!

Top Passive Income Business Models



Making money while you sleep or travel the world might sound like a dream to a lot of people but this is one of those dreams that can become a reality thanks to the transformative power of the web.

To earn a passive income, all you need to do is set up a system that allows you to sell products without having to put in any work to create and deliver said products. That could mean that you are selling a digital product such as an ebook for example, or it might mean that you're selling a product on behalf of another company and acting as an affiliate. It could even mean making money from advertising.

And there are a surprisingly large number of ways you can do this. Read on to discover some of the best methods you can use to make passive income and how they each work:

Sell an Ebook From a Sales Page

Creating an ebook is a simple matter of choosing a subject and then writing about it in a Word document. You can then save that document as a PDF file and start selling it from your website. If you donít have the necessary writing ability, knowledge or patience to write an ebook though, then you can simply outsource this process by hiring a writer from a site like UpWork or Elance.

Add an automated sales and delivery system, creating an advertising campaign or evergreen website and youíre good to go!

Sell a Kindle Ebook

You can simplify the process of selling ebooks too by selling through Kindle. Kindle is of course the name of Amazon's e-reader device and this also comes with its own store where users can find and download books. This makes it a highly effective distribution platform, meaning that it's a very easy way for you to find customers, sell to them and deliver your product. You don't need to worry at all about marketing, about handling payment or about delivering the product ñ Amazon does all that for you!

Best of all, it's free to sign up!

Sell an App

Or why not make money from an app? This works just the same as selling a Kindle book, in that you have access to a ready-made distribution platform with a large, captive audience. And if you sell your app on Android, then you'll only need to pay $30 to sign up and your app will be automatically approved in a matter of hours.

Don't know how to make an app? Then just use an app builder tool or outsource the process!

Run a Website

If you can get enough visitors to a website, then you can use this as a means to turn a profit from advertising. Use AdSense like my blog and each time a visitor clicks an ad, you'll get a tiny payment (usually of a few cents to a dollar). The hard part is getting enough visitors to your site without spending every waking moment running it ñ but if you hire writers, or if you create an evergreen resource, then this can work well.

10 Ways to Re-Purpose Public Domain Content



In the sense of intellectual property, works in the public domain are those whose exclusive intellectual property rights have expired, have been forfeited, or are inapplicable. This applies to most type of work which includes written work such as transcripts, books and magazines.

Public Domain materials will give you the right to sell a product with no limitations. But that’s not even the best part. The best part is that you can also edit the a public domain material to your heart’s content, thereby helping it to better fit your branding and your message, or altering it to add value. What this also means is that you’re free to re-use the content in other ways too.

Here are some quick ideas you of products you can create with public domain content.

Make a Video

You can create a slideshow using the content from an ebook, or you can read it out and thereby ‘perform’ said content.

Make a Podcast

Likewise, you can perform the content without any visuals to accompany it and that way make an audio book or a series of podcast episodes.

Make a Larger Book/Package

Want to offer even more value than you already are? Then how about combining content from multiple Ebooks into an ultimate package of some sort. This way, you can give someone a truly comprehensive experience that will be worth more than the asking price of each book individually.

Make Multiple Shorter Ebooks

A clever way to charge more for your ebooks is potentially to separate them into multiple shorter books. This way you can create a series, with each one encouraging your visitors to read the rest.

Make a Short Report

A report is normally a short PDF that provides information on a particular topic or subject matter. If you can take a single chapter from your book or a forward, then this can be used as an incentive to collect more downloads.

Make a Member’s Site

Or why not take your ebook entirely apart and seal it behind a pay-wall? This way, you can sell access to a repository of information.

Make a Real Book

Using Lulu or Amazon, you can self-publish your ebook and start selling it as a real, hard-copy tome!

Make a Kindle Book

Or how about uploading it to Kindle and selling it through the Kindle store?

Make Emails

Email marketing is an incredibly powerful form of marketing and by breaking your ebook down into chapters, it will lend itself perfectly to becoming an ezine.

Make an App

If you’re feeling really ambitious, then you could even turn your ebook into an app!

10 Quick Tips For Writing Your Own eBook



If you want to start making money from eBook sales then your options are to outsource the content creation to a third party, or to try and write it yourself. If you can write the product yourself then this is actually the preferable choice as it will mean that you retain full control over the outcome of the product and that you can offer some genuine insight and something truly new. Hiring a writer will usually result in a passable book that covers all the basics – but if you have something truly special to say you really need to say it yourself.

Writing an eBook is hard though, which is why you should follow these ten tips that can really help:

Plan a Structure

If you're writing a blog post then you can probably get away with making it up as you go along. With an eBook though, it really does pay to have at least a loose structure in mind first so spend some time planning this out.

Read Other Books in Your Niche

This is a great way to get inspiration for your own ideas and to become better versed in the subject matter.

Write Every Day

Writing that much content takes discipline. Make your aim to write everyday – even if you only write a paragraph that's better than writing nothing at all.

Add Images and Tables

If you want to add value to your eBook and you're not sure about your writing quality, then adding images and tables is a great way to give your product more bang for the buck.

Choose a Subject You Know

There's no point in writing something you know nothing about. Pick a subject matter you're an expert in – if that's your career, then that's fine!

Choose a Subject You Enjoy

More important still, make sure that the subject you're writing about is one you enjoy. That way you'll be more motivated and your enthusiasm will come across in your writing.

Pick a Small Niche

That said, writing a fitness book will mean going up against every other eBook author on the planet. Try to pick a niche that's less saturated with a clear route to market.

Get it Proofread

Even if you are the best writer in the world, it's very difficult to spot your own typos and errors. Hire a proofreader to ensure absolute professionalism.

Focus on the Value Proposition

Your value proposition is defined as the way in which your book is going to change the life of the person reading. Will they be richer? Stronger? Smarter? Famous? Focus on this and tie each point into that.

Say Something New

Finally, make sure to say something new. Don't just rehash old ideas – come up with something that's completely your own!

My Top 3 Favourite Savings Using Vouchers Bought From Zeek!

1. Saving on Petrol from Supermarket Chains

At time of writing, you may pay for Morrisons and Tesco Petrol using the respective retailer gift cards. So, you potentially save 2% to 3% on the price of your petrol depending on the deal you get on Zeek. Do note that Sainsbury's gift card can't be used to pay for Petrol.

2. Offer Stacking

To grab a further bargain, gift card are treated as equivalent to cash in store or online. This means you can usually stack the offers with any on going discounts or voucher codes.

3. Cash Back Sites

If you are purchasing online from retailers like Debenhams or Argos, do remember to do so through cash back websites like TopCashBack to get additional savings on your purchases.

8 Tricks To Boost The Sales Of Your Digital Product



If you have a digital product like an eBook or Video Course then essentially you have a license to print money. As a digital product, this is something that you can sell millions of times in a single day in theory. It has no overheads, no delivery costs and you can set the price however you choose.

Of course this isn't quite how the story goes for everyone who starts selling though. The volume of sales are very much dependent on your skill, timing and understanding of sales. To help get more sales then, consider the seven following tips:

1 Sell in More Places

Want to get more sales? Then sell in more places! Putting your product on digital marketplaces are often free and will mean thousands more people can instantly find and buy your product – people who otherwise probably wouldn't have.

2 Find Affiliates

Whether you choose to use a service like Clickbank, JVZoo or to set up cookies yourself, using affiliates can give you an army of marketers happy to help you sell your product and reach a wider audience. Offer them an attractive and fair commission structure

3 Hire a Writer

You may already have hired a writer for your eBook which is great. Now though, it's time to bring them back and get them to write your landing page! Professional sales copy makes all the difference.

4 Run a PPC Campaign

If you have a specific niche and a great landing page then any money you spend on PPC should result in clear ROI and is a great way to expand your audience.

5 Improve the Cover or Graphics of the Product

Graphic Sells! It could be that the cover of your eBook is what's putting off potential buyers. Head over to a site like Fiverr and spend a little to spruce up your image!

6 Change the Price

Lowering the price will likely increase sales while hurting your profits. Increasing the price can have the opposite effect. Make sure you play around with this number until you find your perfect sweet spot. You don't know unless you try!

7 Give Away a Free Taster

Giving away a free taster of an eBook is often one of the very best things you can do to drive sales. If you have a mailing list then try sending them a PDF of the first chapter. People love getting things for free and if the title is inviting then they're bound to open it. Then, if they like what they see, they'll be hooked and liable to make a purchase!

8 Offer Money Back Guarantee

You will generate a higher level of sales by removing the perceived risk for the potential customer. If you believe in your product, there is no reason why you shouldn't be afraid of the refunds. And when they do request for a refund, do honour it and gather the feedback to improve the product or for future sales. Companies like Zappos.com offer a 365 days money back guarantee which attracted more purchases from their customers.

Enjoy!

Introducing Google Adwords & How It Can Promote Your Business



Google AdWords is an online advertising service, developed by Google, where advertisers pay to display brief advertising copy to web users. Google AdWords' system is based partly on cookies and partly on keywords determined by advertisers. Google uses these characteristics to place advertising copy on pages where they think it might be relevant.

Advertisers pay when users divert their browsing to click on the advertising copy. Partner websites receive a portion of the generated income. For example, the advertising displayed on my blog are paid for by Google Adwords Customers. Below are beginner tutorials on how you can use Google Adwords to promote your business or product.
