Published

on

First and foremost people.. if you want to become successful online then you must start here first to begin your journey. Then if you’re looking to take that success and filter it into other money making venues then I got something incredible for you.

You see the world is looking to learn how to make money online. If you do a Google search then you will find so much stuff on making money online that your head will spin. For now on just disregard all that crap unless you want to be running around like a chicken with your head cut off.

Those programs cost hundreds of dollars and most of them don’t even come with one on one help. So you been capable having any success with them are like slim to none. But I’m here to hopefully save the day and possibly  get you on the road to making thousands of dollars online just like I do and the rest of the top marketers out there.

 

The Myth

Most people are the monkey see monkey do type of people and they just follow what’s hot at the time. If someone says that selling “How to Train A Dog” program is hot, them most likely you will be trying to sell that crap. This is what hunts a lot of people online and the reason why 95% of you will never make a dime online.

People think that you always have to promote the so called ‘”How To Make Money Online” programs to make a buck online. Frankly this is not true my friend, you can make money by selling the craziest of crazy products online. To be able to make money online you must just have something people will be interested in and get it in front of them by using seo services that will help you rank that site for any given top keyword.

So your job is to try to promote something people are willing and ready to buy, not the things most people been telling you for years to promote like a ebook or membership site. You can make money online for free in this recession if you can tap into the right market.

I’m bout to reveal a strategy to you that you may or may not be aware of but its something I been doing for years and have just been making thousands from it for years now. So without making you wait anymore longer..here is how you can start living the dreams of a lifetime.

 

Money In The City

First way to bring in more income is to roam your city and look for the demands in the ruff. What I mean about this is to look at businesses and see what their selling and if people are interested in those items. For instance here in my city I found a business that sale rocking chairs and swings that hang from a trees and many other country living products.

Now this company has been around for over 70 years and never had a website. I called the owners up which are the kids of the original owners which are very older in age. I told them that I own a seo company and I wanted to create a website so I can buy their products for a good whole sale price and resale them under retail price to make money fast and beat out the competitions.

I told them that I already did my research on the top two products they sale and found out that over 3k people search for those items each month. So I wanted to not only make a site for these products but also market them online to help their profits.

Lastly I explained to them how much money we can make and broke down how fast it will might take to get to the front page of Google for the targeted keywords I’m going for. I told them once I receive orders then I will contact them and place that order and let them do all the shipping. So all I have to do is market the site and collect the money and grow my bottom line.

 

The Income Break Down

The rocking chairs retailed for $189 but I told them I needed to get them at a whole sale price of $119 to make a good in between profits. Next the outdoor swings retailed for $299, I wanted a $209 whole sale price so I can get a big return on my marketing also. So once this was done and we signed our contract agreement, then I got started making the site and getting it to rank.

Once the site hit the front page of Google and got into the number one spot, then the traffic and sales started to come in. I’m averaging about 23 sales from the rocking chairs and averaging about 34 sales from the outdoor swings per month. So basically I’m averaging about 1,400k a month with the rocking chairs, and plus about 3,000k per month for the custom swing sets.

This is given me about $4,500 per month just by contacting a small company that builds outdoor appliances. What I did was give you a easy way of finding things to promote that are offline. You don’t always have to employ online products to make a buck, you can search the newspapers and local yellow pages to see what’s available out there that you can make money with.

Here is a secrete you may not have known about, the people who will search for physical items will buy easier then someone who are looking for a ebook. The reason for this is that these people are ready to spend money now versus a person who is looking for a ebook or something that they can find for free through research.

 

Try It

Today is the day you call up five businesses and see if they will be interested in partnering up with you. If someone say no then move on to the next person, sooner or later you will have ten or more niche sites working for you day and night. Now who says you can’t make money online for free in the recession?

Antonio Coleman is the CEO of the Coleman Marketing Group a place where he educates small business owners on how to grow their online and offline businesses. Plus he provides free marketing consulting which covers all part of the latest marketing strategies.

Successful Blogging: EXPERIENCE and Learn

Published

on

Do you know how people tell you to live and learn? Not the best advice. EXPERIENCE life and observe your lessons. THEN learn. Successful blogging is observing, learning then moving forward with those lessons firmly impressed on your mind. All that sweet blogging money only appears if you experience blogging by diving in, and blogging every single day for hours daily. After, you need to observe your experience. What did you learn? Take those lessons with you to succeed online. Living is useless unless you learn from experiences. EXPERIENCING blogging and learning from experiences separates successful bloggers from everybody else.

Let me explain…..

Me and my wife house sit in Brooklyn for 3 weeks now. The homeowners have a car. I need to move the car to find a new parking spot once weekly as alternate side of the street parking rules are in effect due to weekly street cleaning. The owners simply told me it’d be easy to find a spot early in the afternoon. Cool. But their advice did nothing to prepare me for the EXPERIENCE of actually trying to start the car, and find a new parking spot. I never used a key-less car before. I had no idea you need to press on the brake while pushing the start button because I had no experience doing so, and the owners did not give me instructions to do this. I know you place a key into ignition and turn it because that is my experience for 30 years as a driver. Anyway, 45 minutes later, I figured how to start the car. But wait! I had a new experience to…..experience. I had lessons to learn. Because after exiting the parking spot, I drove side streets for another 50 minutes before finding a spot. Frustrated and agitated, I learned a valuable lesson *from* my experience; change parking spots from one street side to another immediately after the street sweeper comes through. Cool.

But I had another lesson to learn. Traffic cops give tickets if you park on the alternate side before 1 PM; even if the street cleaner plowed through. Being burned by yesterday, I drove around for 90 minutes today to ensure I’d have an entire city block of open parking to choose from. OK; I also illegally parked on that open block for about 45 of those minutes. Why? Yesterday’s agitating experience told me it’s wiser and less time consuming to circle for 90 minutes to guarantee I get easy parking. Wait! I learned another lesson based on today’s experience. Never leave your parking spot at 11:30 AM when street cleaners move thru because you’ve 90 minutes to kill before legally parking on the alternate side. I asked a traffic cop. He offered the answer. More experience. Next week, I hop in the car only if the alternate side seems to fill up fast but based on prior experience, this only happens at about 12:50 PM, 10 minutes before the expiry time.

Blessed experience wins again. Life-wise. Blogging-wise. Seize it. Capitalize on it. Succeed. Blogging is no spectator sport.

1 Blogging Lesson I Learned from Parking a Car in NYC

Published

on

Alternate side of the street parking day here in NYC. This means you need to move your car to the other side of the street for street cleaning. Cool. I heard it on the radio many times. First time I had to experience it in person, though. We house sit for a couple in Brooklyn. This couple owns a car. Cool. But the car did not start for a good hour because I did not know one steps on brakes while pressing key-less start buttons. Oh well. But after that, I drove around for 45 minutes looking for a new spot on the other side of the road because you get a nice ticket otherwise. No spots availed themselves for 45 minutes. I spoke to my wife. She told me cars need be parked 15 feet from fire hydrants. I was 5 feet away. Shoot. On returning to the car, a bus moved in front of me. I slid in to a parking spot. Phew. Relief.

What lesson did I learn? No matter how calm you THINK you are, agitation arises in you. Unless you’re enlightened. Alas I am not. I am a regular guy. Calm? Yep. But I routinely find events feeling uncomfortable to navigate. Sometimes, aka rarely, I experience events triggering deeper fears. Today was one such event. I did not flip out, scream, panic or throw a tantrum. I did however feel super agitated about needing to spend almost 2 hours driving around NYC and trying to start a key-less car because 2 hours are precious to me. I hate wasting time. Inefficient actions disgust me. BUT perfect place, perfect time. I needed this experience to trigger fears for feeling, hugging and clearing, to make me even more calm. No matter how much growth and success you experience, leveling up introduces you to new fears. Deeper fears. More unpleasant fears.

With deeper fears comes greater responsibility and even more success. I suspect if I do become a billionaire blogger how I’ll keep nudging into unpleasant-feeling fears along the way. But inspiring millions and making billions? Worth it. I am humble enough to know my calm demeanor a good 95% of the time may-does evolve into agitation some 5% of the time. Maybe less. Progress has been attained. Because I have not genuinely screamed at someone in about 1 year and I have been agitated like today about 5 times over the past year. I am calm most of the time. Agitation arises rarely because I am human and apt to be afraid of stuff. Sue me, LOL.

Be with fears as you grow. Energies arise. Anger. Terror. Horror at the future. Blanket disgust. Never resist these energies. I stumble across non-enlightened folks who hold self to enlightened standards. No way guys. Never be surprised at your getting angry or upset because only enlightened souls and repressed people never anger or feel agitated. Burying fear stifles your growth. Hugging fear accelerates your growth. You know I hug my fears. NYC parking agitation still subsiding now.

5 Greatest Landing Page Optimization Tools For Your Blog

Published

on

landing page optimization tools

Landing pages can steal people’s attention. And if you play your cards right, these pages hold the ticket to attracting more customers.

However, let’s be clear:

Landing pages are double-edged swords. While they can help you, they can also harm you — unless you’ve optimized them accordingly.

So if you know your landing page needs work, why not get around it?

Well, there are plenty reasons for this, and there are also many landing page plugins that can help to further critique your LPs as well.

As you go through this article, you’ll find five landing page optimization tools for your blog. With them, you can revamp your landing page then have it increase conversions and your blog’s income.

Unbounce

Unbounce - landing page optimization tools

Optimizing landing pages is not possible if you haven’t built them yet. So to construct great landing pages, the tool for you is Unbounce.

And Effin Amazing, a Florida-based agency that specializes in analytics and growth, will tell you all about the tool’s power.

When one of its clients, Chupa Mobile, asked for help generating new leads, Effin Amazing used Unbounce. The team’s idea for its client involved a lead nurturing strategy and a content calendar. That and Effin Amazing wanted to get it done as quickly as possible.

True, it was a rather ambitious plan. However, it was realistic. And get this:

The marketing agency reached its goal. Chupa Mobile was satisfied with its landing page. It also began generating dozens of new leads. Plus, it also walked away with a 44% increase in conversions.

Crazy Egg

Electronic Arts is a successful media company that knows that Crazy Egg lets you set up an A/B test in minutes. It also knows that the tool features Visitor Insights and Heatmaps. Both of which provide information about user behavior on landing pages. So before launching SimCity 5 in 2013, it set up an A/B testing process to maximize revenue.

Crazy Egg

For the control version of its landing page, it merely focuses on promoting the simulation game. While on the other version, the company offers a 20% discount.

Here’s the control version of its landing page:

Crazy Egg - SimCity5Control

Here’s the variation:

Crazy Egg - SimCity5Variation

After a while, the media company discovered that its landing page’s variation was a hit. Compared to the version that brings an incentive into the table, the landing page design without a 20% discount performed 43.4% better.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics

If you combine Google Analytics and Google Adwords, a powerful tool is in your hands. You can use it to track landing page performance to haul in leads even after they exit your site.

To demonstrate the power of Analytics, let’s explore Marketo’s conversion increase that happened after using the tool.

So here’s the story:

As a go-to company for many B2B and B2C folks when it comes to marketing and automation, Marketo’s goal is to help its clients improve conversions. And to reach that goal, the plan was to use Analytics and real-time personalization.

So it took its clients’ website data such as industry vertical and top products. Then it merged all of it with the user behavior data it got from Google Analytics.

Because of what the analytics tool reveals, Marketo provided audiences with relevant data. From what it gathered, it also created topnotch remarketing campaigns. The fruits of the marketing company’s labor? A 10x conversion rate improvement for its clients!

Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect is a WordPress page builder. And if you’re searching for a tool that can help you create visually impressive, high-converting landing pages, it’s the tool you need.

Take it from Louise Hendon. She is a solopreneur who uses Thrive Architect to whip up topnotch landing pages for Nourishing Brands. That’s why, over the years, she succeeded in building a sizeable six-figure business.

An upside is this:

Thrive Architect features a drag-and-drop interface that lets you build your page quickly. If you want detailed instructions on how to use the page builder, this article from ProfitBlitz will come to your rescue.

Pingdom

Pingdom

Did you know that Refinery29, a globally recognized brand for smart, creative women, uses Pingdom? And because the tool provides insights about how to increase page loading speed, the brand welcomes 36 million monthly visits.

So if your landing page loads slowly, Pingdom can help you. The tool works by taking your site out for a spin and pointing you to the root of the problem.

The excellent news is Pingdom is free and easy-to-use. All you must do is paste your site’s URL where the tool specifies, and you’re good to go.

To see it work in action, let’s check the page loading speed of a random site. For this, let’s go with Goliath National Bank’s website. So let’s paste its URL on the appropriate field and click START TEST.

Pingdom - Example

After the tool is done with the analysis, scroll down the same page to see the results.

And if you scroll down some more, you’ll find suggestions on how to improve page performance. If you want a detailed explanation on how to improve page performance, expand the suggestion.

Final Thoughts

Put yourself in a potential customer’s shoes and think of a landing page as a gateway to something unknown. Now, if someone herded you toward this gateway, would you want to see what’s on the other side of the fence if the entry point is dreary?

Chances are, you won’t. By the looks of it, choosing to pursue the dark path won’t lead to anywhere promising.

Remember, creating landing pages and creating landing pages that convert are two different things. So as you build your landing pages, make sure to implement nothing but the best landing page optimization practices.
