Cryptocurrency Trend [Cliff High]

Exploit Trends – Cryptocurrencies & ICOs | King Digital Lifestyles
Welcome back to your Home Business blog. In one of my previous posts near the end I said that catching trends in development is the best way to grow an online business. Some of the most successful marketers and self-made millionaires like Tai Lopez, Ryan Stewart, and Gary Vaynerchuck pay close attention to emerging trends in order to develop marketing strategies which grow their businesses. As we have already discussed trends start to develop in social media and then spread from there into global markets and countries until eventually interest is lost (think fidget spinner). One of the biggest trends in development right now is cryptocurrency.

As we have seen in some of my previous posts the bigger majority of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and crypto coins out there are scams (see NOTE) in the sense there is an idea or problem to be solved but the team behind it is not capable of properly implementing a solution. That’s what Andreas Antonopoulos would tell you. Many of these teams are very good at marketing and turn to big influencers who get paid for talking greatly about the coin or token in questions. What if there is a more reliable source of information to learn about cryptocurrency trends? Today I want to briefly tell you about Cliff High, his work, and why you should follow him.

Cliff High is a man who has been making very accurate predictions about many different topics. In the past, he has made accurate predictions about natural disasters like earthquakes, Bitcoin prices (he predicts Bitcoin will rise to over $64,000 in 2018), what to expect from the stock market, global economy and more. He uses software based on the Python programming language which is known as “web scraper” in order to automate the process of retrieving data from the web on many of the topics already mentioned, cryptocurrencies being one of the main ones he currently covers. He then uses natural language processing engine in order to analyze the vast amounts of data retrieved and find patterns that are then used to predict with an accurate degree of certainty what will happen in the future. A process also known as PREDICTIVE LINGUISTICS. He also writes a comprehensive report every two to three months in which he summarizes the findings.

NOTE: The reports cost $99 and you can buy them at his website if you are interested. You don’t need to buy the reports as lots of the research and information is freely shared during his interviews.

I recommend you to see some of his interviews especially the ones that cover cryptocurrencies as it will give you a good idea of what to expect. You can also use some of the information covered by Cliff in order to develop engaging content for your blog which can help you to build an online presence.

That’s all I have for today. I hope this information can help you create new content and learn more about cryptocurrencies. I want to note that Cliff also gives predictions about gold, silver, stocks, diamonds… real state and many other topics. He also talks about interesting events happening in outer space. Sometimes he also likes to talk about conspiracies, alien technology… and many other unconventional topics. I find his work interesting and maybe so will you. Talk on the next post!

Yoonla Phase Two Launch [Income]

Residual Income Opportunity – Affiliate Program | King Digital Lifestyles
First I want to give you a warm welcome to your Home Business Blog. Today I just want to share a couple of quick updates. In some of my previous blog posts I spoke about CPA model of advertising which happens to be one of the best ways to recuperate advertising costs. Today I want to bring to your attention a CPA program which is launching phase two in a short couple of days. During phase one, the program grew to over 1.2 million members all interested in affiliate marketing and best strategies to make money online.

DISCLAIMER: Phase two is not yet live. When Phase Two is officially launched you will be able to join.

JOIN YOONLA NOW

Phase one came to a closure because there had been lots of fraud going on, especially from countries like Vietnam and Thailand. To put it simply people would buy cheap email lists or fabricate fake email entities and then use this information to sign up under their affiliate link in order to receive 2-$4 per sign up. Patterns of repeated and fully unresponsive emails (the kind that never opens a single email) started to emerge and the moderators of the program decided to close it in order to put in place better fraud prevention systems. Not only did they work to prevent fraud moving forward, they have also enhanced all marketing material you and I will be able to use in order to promote this CPA program. During peak times this program had been paying $200,000 per day to it’s affiliates around the world.

You can join this program for FREE and they will provide you with tips, videos and information that can further help you grow your business. Personally I recommend you to use Online Sales Pro to create your landing pages and Aweber as your autoresponder. They will show you other alternatives namely leadpages (which is also $37/month for their entry level functionality) and GetResponse (also a very good autoresponder). If you do promote this program create a landing page where you talk about some of the facts I have already stated in this post and then provide your own affiliate link from your dashboard (after you have already joined and been approved). This way you can earn all commissions whenever someone joins using your affiliate link. You can join using my link below:

DISCLAIMER: Phase two is not yet live. When Phase Two is officially launched you will be able to join.

JOIN YOONLA NOW

NOTE: A better strategy is to use Online Sales Pro or Clickfunnels to capture the users you refer to the program into your own email list and then send them to the CPA offer. Note Online Sales Pro (OSP) is $37 a month for the full functionality of the app and pays 54% to the affiliate per referral. I recommend OSP to start with. Clickfunnels is $97 a month and brings more utility to create action based sales funnels but it also takes longer to learn to use. I recommend Clickfunnels once you have already started to make some money online and you know what works for you. The advantage of capturing users into your email list is this way you are able to notify the users of new programs and hot deals that may benefit both you (because you earn a commission) and them (because they save money for a service they need). For example, there have been times when OSP sold their yearly subscription at discounted rates (25% off). I email my subscribers when I see this so they can take advantage of it if they choose to. Thus far, I have linked both of my accounts (Online Sales Pro and Clickfunnels) with Aweber to make it easy to send automated reminders and also be able to send email to everyone that joins the list. If you don’t have a system like this one set up yet… make it a priority. To get mine set up I pestered the support team at OSP, Clickfunnels… and Aweber… until everything worked. I also had some help from my traffic coach Jacqueline Grant as well who is one of the leading MOBE consultants helping clients automate their online business.

The other news I have is that USI TECH will be back to full operations tomorrow 2/19/2018 according to corporate newsletter. Tomorrow I should receive full details on what will be happening. I’m already starting to see affiliates promoting USI TECH once again at Traffic Exchanges and various other places. If you do join invest an amount of money you could afford to lose. We all have seen what happened to Bitconnect. Personally I think USI TECH has real potential… because of their patented technology … especially now given the fact they are coming back to USA and Canada markets after being sent a cease and desist order from the Texas State Securities Board. Their lawyers found a way to comply with the United States government.

Please note Ethan Vanderbuilt thinks the total opposite, supporting the idea that USI TECH is just another scam. If you do join please invest something you can afford to lose. This is not financial advice. Do your own research.

JOIN USI TECH NOW

I will have some new useful information to share with you in my next post. Have an awesome Sunday filled with either joy or productivity. Until the next one.

PS: STATS TODAY SO FAR (Bounce Rate) (Location) (Devices)
If you are thinking of joining Traffic Exchanges, every Sunday you get double credits per page surfed. The participating Traffic Exchanges in this deal include:
1- Traffic-Splash
2- Tezzers Traffic Power
3- Traffic Speedway
4- Hungry For Hits
5- SWAT Traffic

Traffic Exchanges are normally rotated to expose your website, offers and landing pages to a bigger audience.

I also recommend realhitz4u, hit2hit, hitlink, topsurfer and easyhits4u. My game plan is to use Traffic Exchanges to more easily create ranking signals. Don’t get me wrong. Surfing is no fun… there is so many better ways to spend my time… Reading books… Learning new concepts… testing new income streams. But for those who don’t have thousands to spend on advertising (like me)… Traffic Exchanges is the way I have found to trigger the signals that rank a website. At some point Google will send me all the traffic. And I will be able to use my time in better ways. Is all strategy and being resourceful. Success doesn’t come easy… is massive amounts of work and lots of failure in between. However… if you don’t quit and you learn from your mistakes eventually YOU WILL WIN. I promise you.

Over 60% of the devices active on the web right now (something like 67%) are smartphones. Notice how in my devices I mostly have desktop computers. This is because people are surfing for credits and is easier to surf Traffic Exchanges using a computer with a bigger screen. If I can generate decent stats now… with an “INFERIOR” traffic source… the sky will be the limit when Google sends me a bunch of organic traffic. That’s how you should think about your business as well.

How To Buy Good Expired Domains

Buy Dead Domains – Buy Used URLs | King Digital Lifestyles
Is early Saturday morning and today I want to give you some quick and actionable tips to finding success faster. In the past I talked about various link building techniques from some of the best SEO authorities in online marketing. As you probably know by now ranking a website appropriately can take months or years of publishing useful content on a particular niche or category. This has to do with the Google algorithm taking time to perform some tests which rearrange website rankings. We also covered that building authority and expertise on a specific topic will help you boost PageRank and Domain Authority – two very important metrics that determine how much MORE free (ORGANIC) traffic your website receives the more you improve them.

NOTE: Don’t confuse PageRank and Page Authority. PageRank is an algorithm which calculates a numeric value to indicate how important a web page is. Taken directly from Google search – “Page Authority (PA) is a score developed by Moz that predicts how well a specific page will rank on search engine result pages (SERP). Page Authority scores range from one to 100, with higher scores corresponding to a greater ability to rank.” You can test your current Page Authority using this tool.

In some of my previous posts I also talked about some forums in which niche websites and shopify stores are sold. The websites I mentioned included SitePoint and Digital Point. In my case, I don’t have that kind of money to invest into a fully made website which has already been ranked for a year or two. However, I understand a portion of the audience reading this would benefit from this kind of deal. What I can tell you is that ranked websites are traded and flipped everyday and the higher the quality and authority of a website the more an investor will be willing to pay for it. Some websites with blogs sell for six and seven-figure deals.

Looking a few months back I could of had a head-start if I had known the information I’m about to share with you. You see, it happens all the time that someone buys a domain name, starts building a website on top of it and months or even years after the website has been live for one reason or another they decide to quit until the domain expires. When a domain expires you can buy them at auction using services such as expireddomain. What you could do is use some of the tools I have already shared with you and try to find a domain with backlinks that happens to have some PageRank and Page Authority attached to it and start building from there.

NOTE: Some of the domains you will find in the Expired Domains archive at one point or another belonged to spammers. To prevent buying a domain which has been affected by Google penalties what you should do is use this tool to be able to determine if the domain is worth purchasing or not.

Now let me give you some tips so you can be more successful, faster. I was reading an infographic published by Neil Patel and the best performing URLs should have a maximum of 8 characters. This makes the URL in question easy to remember. The other tip I have for you is to pick a domain which ends in .com… because through the years people have become used to typing this top level domain over other ones like .net and .gov (only government entities can get this top level domain). You don’t want people to navigate to the wrong website so avoid using other top level domains. The third tip is to try to find a URL which is relevant to the content you will upload. Simply use relevant keywords in the search of Expired Domains to find potentially matching domains. More specifically here is a video which walks you thought the process of using expireddomains.net. You can also search on YouTube “expired domains tutorial” to find more videos on this topic. Why so many resources? Because sometimes you will find what you need using a different tool or expired domain archive. This is like mining for gold… in the sense it could save you months and even years of work in trying to rank a website which starts from zero. Some individuals even have developed the habit of finding good expired domains to resell for a profit.

The last thing I want to leave you with is something I learned from Ryan Stewart. In one of his webinars he said keyword research and ranking for ALREADY ESTABLISHED keywords is the old way of SEO (and this is how most of us operate by the way). He shared the statistic that 15% of all Google searches are new (never done before) search queries and so… when we input a query on the Google toolbar and see other recommended set of keywords we are looking into the past. I want to note that Google handles more than 2 trillion searches per year. In his experience it is the now (or the NEW and trending topics) which end up driving the most traffic. Fresh trending topics start out in social media and then are picked up by Google. So ultimately the best strategy is to catch a trend in development and run with it (Anyone remembers the fidget spinners?). Those who caught on to the fidget spinner trend early and build shopify stores or niche sites around it made huge profits. If you are first to start putting out content about a new hot topic you will find a huge boost in traffic as more searches occur and the keywords solidify as a common search query. This results in high-quality, laser targeted traffic that can help you grow your business.

NOTE: Once you have a website set up ensure to post amazing content. This will help you build an audience, continue to boost PageRank, Domain Authority and it will help you increment organic traffic from search engines. The goal is to build a self running system which generates monthly income that can fully replace a job.

This post is starting to run too long. I will have something new to share with you on the next one. I hope this information is useful to you in finding success with your online business faster. Most of the advise I gave you today I did it wrong for myself… but experience is what counts. If I ever make a new niche website or shopify store I will be able to apply this information in order to kick start the process of being successful.

Top Affiliate Marketing Forums You Should Know

Marketing Forums – Sales Forums | King Digital Lifestyles
Once again I welcome you to your Home Business Blog where we talk about the world of affiliate marketing and online sales. In the previous posts I talked about ways to build high quality backlinks using white hat and gray hat SEO techniques in order to prevent penalties from Search Engines like Google and I also added a quick update about a new viral mailer which was launched on Valentine’s Day. Today I want to equip you with more tools to help you build more backlinks, sell your products and supply you with more information on affiliate marketing. We will be talking about the best forums for building and growing a profitable online business.

Firstly I want to express online forums are one of the most important resources of information. Within forums you can find expert advise on topics such as branding, building sales funnels, copy writing (or sales writing), doing split testing of landing pages to improve conversion rates, tips on using pixel tracking, link tracking and heat mapping tools to gather very useful data. You could learn about topics such as google hacks and find mentors who can give you very useful strategies I’m yet to discover for myself. Cutting edge topics such as dynamic advertising and many other useful tips and tricks.

NOTE: A topic I’m currently learning more about is Google hacks. I want to note this is not malicious type of hacking activity where a criminal tries to get hold of valuable data for self profit. Instead I’m talking about advanced google operators which allow you to find very useful information hidden deep within the indexes of search engines like Google. Those who master the ability of becoming true power searchers in Google can find information others would struggle to come across. I also want to point out the term dynamic marketing. This is a modern sales strategy growing in adoption among the very best marketers who have access to software developers. Imagine you start watching an add of some sort, a video on this perfume you should buy for your other half because is Valentine’s and then at the two minute mark you get a pop up.. “Congratulations you are entitled for a 10% discount for watching this far”… that’s an example of dynamic marketing. The sales funnels changes on the go depending on the activity of the user and this will lead to increased sales volumes when used properly.

So anyway I should not get carried away let me share with you the best online marketing forums you need to start using.

WARRIOR FORUM


To this day warrior forum is considered the best forum on affiliate marketing. My research shows some people see it more like the forum you want to use if you want to BUY and SELL some product or service which can boost online sales but you will equally find forum threads which are purely dedicated to marketing advice and information on using (and understanding) tools such as google analytics. If you are stuck on a topic related to affiliate marketing you can use this forum to ask for advice and find a solution to your problem.

Inbound


You can use inbound to receive newsfeed directly to your preferred email address on various topics such as SEO, Email Marketing, conversions and just about any topic which would help you improve your marketing efforts. This is a great platform to networks and find answers to some of your most complicated questions.

SitePoint


SitePoint is is the place you want to be when you want to buy (or SELL) a website. This forum is also very useful for learning about website design and using various programming languages such as PHP, Javascript, HTML & CSS in order to build website utility. I think this forum would be very helpful to those who want to put in place a dynamic advertising strategy.

DigitalPoint


As far as I have researched up to this point digital point is more geared towards new marketers. You can use this forums to buy and sell websites and learn from the very basics topics such as SEO, building fully automated online businesses and aspects which are related to web design and programming. New affiliate marketers should probably start here.

Those are my top picks. Once you become advanced and well versed with affiliate marketing terms you can then use Black Hat World to learn even more strategies and techniques. Some of the advice there falls into Gray Hat category but the bigger majority of it is Black Hat in nature. I would encourage you to use this forums for educational purposes to know the kind of tricks people are using to rank fast. You could even start an small project and see how things work… but don’t rely on this because Google will catch on to it and penalize you. I have been doing lots of research and some people managed to rank Shopify Stores, and Niche Websites using black hat techniques and they made a lot of money early on until Google would not send them traffic anymore. Is best to abide by the rules and have long term growth than to see quick success and have to start all over again from absolutely 0. I have even encountered some very successful bloggers who spend a month or two building a website and setting the required means to monetize it and then they let Google do all the testing until a year later it has already ranked and generates continuous income. Think of your website and blogging as in the long term. After 1-3 years of continuous effort and putting out quality and helpful content the universe will find a way to reward you with opportunity and prosperity.

The last thing I want to leave you with is other great posts which will give you more information on forums you should be using to learn more about affiliate marketing.
1- The Top 11 Affiliate Marketing Forums How to Approach
2- The Top 5 Affiliate Forums
3- A last forum I’m currently looking into is: BeerMoneyForum. This forum is all about making money online.

PS: Here are some free tools you can use in order to start checking your progress ranking on Google. This information is useful for you to understand if your current strategy is working. Enter your domain so you can find how you are currently doing.
1- Website Authority Checker
2- Alexa Ranking (Results are more accurate if you hit under 100,000 rank)

Increasing Free Traffic With Backlinking (Updated)

Building Website Authority – Rank Your Website Fast | King Digital Lifestyles
Welcome to your Home Business Blog. In my previous posts I talked about Online Sales Pro which is an app I heavily use to promote my campaigns and Home Business newsletter. I also talked about ways to start ranking your websites by using Traffic Exchanges, Viral Mailers and Social media platforms like Pinterest and Facebook. Today I want to bring to your attention a different approach to ranking your website. This approach works best for people who can write very well or have an expertise on a particular topic. We are talking about building backlinks to your website.

The following information I’m about to share with you I learned from Brian Dean and Ryan Stewart who happen to be two of the best SEO experts in the business. Simply put a backlink is any link (in your website or an external one) which points back to your website. When properly used backlinks can help you explode your organic traffic from search engines by a magnitude of 20,000, 50,000, 100,000, or even ONE MILLION free views to your website per month. So much free traffic activity has to do with the Google algorithm giving better overall ranking to those websites which have more QUALITY backlinks.

NOTE: Early on it was very easy to build an authority website by having many thousand backlinks pointing to it. This is why some people took advantage and managed to create MILLION dollar businesses by becoming subscribers in private networks that would build banklinks for them. Some of these individuals also chose to buy domains with the only purpose of linking back to the website they wanted to rank. In the old days some services could index and rank a website just minutes to hours after payment was made. The Google algorithm has been updated to become much smarter and capable of detecting this nefarious activity. With the new updates those websites which once ranked so well are no longer shown on search queries. Their million dollar businesses have completely disappeared. To this day you can still find private spreadsheets or “hit lists” of websites which held strong Page Authority and Domain Authority that served to some as a guide in building backlinks. Some people would even resort to finding cheap labor in places like upwork to have people from Thailand, India, the Philippines, Pakistan and other nations with lower standards of living… in order to outsource or delegate the process of building backlinks. If you choose to use these resources to grow your business make sure what you do falls into white hat and gray hat SEO strategies to prevent being penalized by Google.

What you should take from the note above is that there is a right way to building backlinks (just like there are wrong ways). Often times I talk about Traffic Exchanges as a way to build an audience on your websites. MANUAL TRAFFIC EXCHANGES, in particular will help you do this and create MORE BENEFIT than harm. In my experience, the negative aspect in using Traffic Exchanges is that often times users are in a rush to claim credits and they don’t take much time to review what is on the website, resulting in high click through rate with a higher than normal bounce rates (you want high click troughs with very low bounce rate for best SEO).

Either way in my experience, there is always a set of users coming from manual Traffic Exchanges who engage and look at various pages, post comments, bookmark the website and spend more time looking at the content provided – helping build website authority and better ranking. In a little over a month I have been able to attract over 20,000 users to this website (12,000 of which return regularly) and this is because part of my daily routine is to surf manual traffic exchanges. I look at the websites I find on traffic exchanges (critically) in order to learn about the offers being promoted, which landing pages are best and to draw ideas which make my website better and more competitive in my niche.

I want to point out I wrote MANUAL TRAFFIC EXCHANGES… and the reason I say this is because there is software based Traffic Exchanges (like hitleap) which would only hurt your SEO strategy. Hitleap is software which automates the process looking at advertisements and websites and allows you to build credits so you can have other bots (people using the same software) go back to your website. The problem with programmed software like this is the Google algorithm can tell this is artificial activity and instead of ranking your website it places it lower on the search index. I use MANUAL TRAFFIC EXCHANGES right now to build an audience – a group of a few thousand people who engage with my posts every week or every month and then it will be this activity that creates a signal to the Googlebot that my website should be ranking better in the index. I know I won’t rank much better until I bring down my bounce rate to under 50% (right now at 80%) but this will improve as I continue to build my target audience. The idea here is to create content which is so helpful to other marketers they keep coming back regularly resulting in key signal to rank an authority website to Googlebot.

So anyway, what other ways can we create good backlinks in order to boost our rankings on the Googlebot index? Brian Dean will tell you to look for roundup websites which are related to your niche or target audience. A roundup website refers to any website which is made for the purpose of featuring the best blog posts, articles (and sometimes websites) on a particular topic or niche for a specified period of time. Most roundup websites post the top 10 blog posts each week, or every two weeks… others choose to do it every month. Something you should understand is that running a roundup website is time consuming. There is lots of content being published but consistently finding blog posts which are worth featuring can be daunting task for the roundup website owner. Roundup website owners have the task to curate blog posts for their audiences and as such they must feature the best content they can find.

This is where you and I come in. At some point we talked about the Skyscraper technique Brian Dean popularized… this is a technique by which someone looking to write a blog post researches the content available on Google and uses all of the found information to write the most kick-ass post on that topic. What you would want to do is send your kick-ass blog post to the roundup website owners on the same niche (as many as you can find) and have them feature your post in front of their audiences. A very important step is to place a link to your website in your post or tell the roundup website owner that in exchange for giving them your post you want them to place a source link (banklink) pointing back to your website. If done correctly you can see an increase in your organic traffic by thousands of new users per week the more your article gets featured in different roundup websites. This is an alternative way to using Traffic Exchanges to start building an audience because you will be exposing your content to audiences which are already interested in your topic or niche.

Another alternative way would be to use buzzsumo to find what content is being most shared right now. This can give you key information on the kind of blog posts you could write about… and it will also give you a list of websites you can target in order to build your backlinks. What Ryan Stewart would tell you is to find the contact information of the administrators of the website and let them know you wrote this awesome blog post which is related to their niche or topic and that you will let them feature your post in their website as long as they give you credit and put a link back pointing to the website you want to rank.

This brings me to guest blogging. An strategy which has been used by Neil Patel and many other highly successful internet marketers is to contact well reputable websites and let them know you are willing to write a guest post to share with their audience as long as they give you the credit and allow you to place a link back to your website. In some cases you will be contacted by other bloggers or website owners who will ask you if you are willing to create a guest post for their audience. If this happens something you should do before accepting is to check the reputation of the website in question and how much traffic they get. You can use tools like similarweb in order to learn about website authority and the traffic they receive on a monthly basis in order to get an idea whether it will be worth your time to create an awesome blog post to share with their audience.

In the process of building backlinks some people even resort to paying other bloggers and website owners for them to add a link which points to the website they want to rank. I would not use this strategy but if you got the budget you can also consider doing this. Small bloggers would post a link on an old article for $25 while others would charge more. This reminds me of another tool you should learn to use if you want to improve your SEO strategy. I’m talking about screaming frog SEO Spider which is a tool you can use to diagnose problems with your website and also to perform competitor analysis. If you learn to use screaming frog you can quickly spot problems on your website such as if there are broken links. Googlebot algorithm ranks better those websites without broken links because this is a signal the website is regularly maintained by an administrator and the content shared comes from integral sources (scam websites doing shady stuff are taken down).

When it comes to competitor analysis, you could run screaming frog against your competitor in order to learn more about their SEO strategy. You can find which keywords they are targeting and ranking for, what tags and meta tags they use, what descriptions and titles they use and the way they have chosen to organize their website. If there is someone who is ranking better than you… screaming frog can give you all the information you would need to outrank them. Right now I don’t know all that much about the tool but I will set aside some time to become familiar. I’m all over the place doing 1,000,000 things… (that’s the only way to succeed in this business)…

Something I learned from Brian Dean is that he looks for authority sites (well reputable websites) on his particular niche (or vertical) and then he tries to find broken links on those websites. Once he finds broken links he contacts the administrator to let them know about the problem and either he offers a solution (by providing a link to his content) which would be a good fit to fix the problem or he will remind the website owner he made an awesome blog post which his audience would find valuable and offer him to post the link to it. In this way he builds high quality backlinks that continue to boost the ranking of his authority website. See? I just linked to his content… that’s for good karma!

NOTE: One other good strategy you can use is to find authority bloggers and follow them on social media like Twitter and Facebook. Re-share their posts and try to build a friendship with them. Eventually you could contact them and let them know you had been following their content for a long time and you feel your content is a good match to share with their audience. Sometimes you will have your blog posts featured on their blogs resulting in organic traffic and a nice backlink to boost your own reputation. This will also create an opportunity for guest blogging to that target audience. One last other way to build backlinks is to read the blog posts of others and then share a thoughtful comment about the post telling the audience you also wrote a post about that topic and then posting a link to it. Some website administrators will flag it as spam if you just post a link that doesn’t add any real value. Comments which add value are more likely to be approved, helping you build more backlinks.

This post is starting to run too long. To summarize… you can use various tools like Buzzsumo and Similarweb.com in order to find good quality and reputable websites whose owners you can contact and tell about your content in order to build backlinks. A good strategy is to run screaming frog SEO spider in order to find broken links and learn why a website is outranking yours. You should offer to write guests posts and blog posts which target particular audiences interested in roundup websites or topics which are related to your niche. You should also find broken links on reputable websites and then contact the administrator to let them know about this problem, providing your own link as a solution or letting them know you wrote about a topic which is of interests to their audiences and offering them your posts if they give you credit (backlink).

By doing this, your website authority will start to build up and you will rank higher on the Googlebot search index. In general it takes years to rank a website properly without using these SEO techniques. So take advantage of them and combine it with MANUAL Traffic Exchanges and viral mailers so that you can boost your organic traffic to 50,000+ visits per month within a few months. You will see some results after 4 to 6 months instead of it taking years. I hope this information is useful to you. Talk next time.

======= PART TWO ========

The clock just hit 6:00 am and now is time to give you some new insights. This post is a continuation to the last post I published in which I talked about building backlinks as a core strategy to rank your websites and blog posts. If you are consistent in following the information I have been sharing with you I know you will start to see results. I have been using the same information to boost my own rankings.

Looking a little over a month back when my friend Larry told me about Plug In Profit System it was when the domain teamresidualnetworks.com was born. Back then nobody knew who I was, and most people still have no idea who I am… but some things have changed. Right now if you look for “Rey Home Business Ideas” you are very likely to find this website ranked in the top 5. I still got a long way before I rank for “home business ideas” or “home business” but knowing I’m already raking for those 4 keyword search tells me what I have been doing the last month is working and if it works for me it will also work for you no matter what niche you are in or what business vertical you promote.

So getting back on the topic of backlinking. I want to give you some more information which I have learned recently. Firstly let me express there are two main types of backlinks namely “do follow links” and “no follow links”. In general you want to build backlinks from authority websites and popular blogs which are “do follow link” because this kind of link has a greater impact on boosting you website rank in the Googlebot index. I want to note that “no follow links” also have a use case, in the sense that to Googlebot it makes sense for any website to have a balanced ratio between “do follow links” and “no follow links”. Simply put, if there are too many do follow links it could rise a red flag of SEO manipulation and Google could penalize your website for using unconventional strategies to rank your websites. If you want to stay safe you should use Gray SEO strategies in order to receive maximum benefit without being penalized.

NOTE: There are three main types of SEO strategies. Namely white hat, gray hat and black hat. Using white hat SEO it will take you years to rank your content and websites on Google. With gray hat techniques you can see results in a few months (2-6) but it still can take a year or longer to see good organic traffic flow. Black hat SEO techniques have a use case – sell a particular product as fast as possible until the website gets penalized for breaking the rules and gets removed from the ranking index. You should stick to using a combination of White Hat and Gray Hat strategies in order to see long term results and prevent being penalized. A fun fact is all this Gray hat, White hat, Black hat terminology came from the old wild west cowboy movies in which the good characters wore white hats and the evil characters wore black hats. Since there was no color TV at the time this was the easiest way to differentiate between good and evil in the movie.

Anyway, now lets get back to backlinking. As of recently I have learned that you could share (at maximum) the same link 3-4 times on any given platform before it no longer helps you boost ranking or authority. In the past I had come across some software tools which were designed to create hundreds of similar links for a specific URL. I did not understand the purpose of this… until now. HAVING MORE LINKS (different URLs) WHICH POINT TO THE SAME CONTENT IS PERCEIVED AS BETTER RANKING SIGNAL. Personally I think we should promote our content especially if is of value and it took a long time to put it together and many hours of research… but there are limits and we don’t want to spam. I think we could use different URLs to continue promoting our content every week or every month in various platforms without resorting to posting hundreds or thousands of links which will likely get you a nice penalty from Google. I would say for each article stick to posting a maximum of 30 to maybe 50 different links per week so you can boost your authority and ranking factor without suffering penalties.

NOTE: Previous to the Google search engine Penguin update it was possible to build backlinks by posting “do follow links” in any website. That no longer works. If you choose to build backlinks pick websites which are closely related to your topic or niche if you want to see any real benefit. Posting links in unrelated websites will result in penalties and there is also the likelihood of being blacklisted.

Now when it comes to strategies… in the past we have already covered that Google doesn’t like repeated content. So in order to send a better ranking signal you should write a main post – an article which is well over 1,000 words with pictures, videos and well researched (valuable) information to share with the world. The next step you want to take (and I failed to do this because I did not know…) is to create multiple summary versions of your main posts. It is this summary versions that you will be posting on the platforms and networks I will soon share with you. You want to do it this way to avoid posting duplicated content, and because it will allow to add a note “If you want to continue reading this post click here” and you drop a nice “do-follow link” to your kick-ass post.

What platforms should you be using? I will give you every platform I know and have used. Some work better than others in generating engagement and traffic but overall all of them will help you boost your authority and website ranking. I have collected this list by learning from many successful marketers. The list is in no particular ranking order.

Facebook
YouTube (Post video content with a link to your website)
Pinterest (Use canva to create pins and infographics which go viral/great source to build no follow links organically.)
Google+
Twitter
SNAPCHAT (Burning hot right now. Get in there!)
INSTAGRAM (One of the best places right now to promote your business and personal brand)
LinkedIn (Use write an article section and post your blog summary)
Medium (This is where I got started)
Steemit (Well ranking platform/crypto payments)
Reddit (You need to build your karma points to join more communities)
Quora (Some of my answers there get 10,000+ views per week… Answer a detailed post then link to one of your articles which has more information)
Getpocket (Some of my social traffic comes from here)
dailimotion (Post video content with a link to your website)
Flickr (Best if you can take quality high-resolution pictures)
500Px (similar to Flickr)
Flipboard (some opportunity for guest blogging)
Blogger
Diigo
Delicious
Instapaper
Livejournal
ok.ru (Best for those who know Russian)
Plurk
scoop.it
sett
StumbleUpon (Over 500 of my social organic views came from this one)
Telegraph
Tumblr (The key with Tumblr is to pick popular images, re-share your content frequently and use popular tags)
vBulleting
Vk
WordPress Based Blog (Recall PIPS gets you set up with a WordPress blog if you provide a domain)
Yo
Veoh (Post video content with a link to your website)
Break (Post video content with a link to your website)
Liveleak (Post video content with a link to your website)
Slideshare (Upload informative presentations and add links to your website and blog posts)
Calameo (Similar to Slideshare)
4Shared (Similar to Slideshare)
Disqus
Hi5 (Mostly used for dating. You can share links to your content from time to time.)
Vimeo (You can upload videos here but there are costs involved most times)
Metacafe (Good to share video content.)
Periscope App (Good to share video content)
Anchor (Good for podcast.)

That was a list wasn’t it? If you want to see progress fast you should try to be active sharing content in all of those platforms on a regular basis. This will help you build an audience. In the beginning most authority websites won’t be willing to grant you a backlink but you will catch their attention as you start to buildup some ranking and authority for yourself.

One last tip I can give you is to follow Gary Vaynerchuk who stays on top of current trends and the applications/platforms which are most widely used at any point in time. Something I learned from him is that part of his routine first thing when he wakes up in the morning is to look at i-tunes top 150 apps. This is how he can spot growing trends (before anyone else) and often times how he is able to invest into companies which are growing very quickly. You and I should do the same in order to stay ahead of the game by being able to capture a bigger audience with less effort.

So there it is! You have tons of ways now to start ranking your website and grow your brand, attract more business and earn more income. I want to leave you with a last thought. Remember that even if you take this advice religiously ranking on Google takes a long time. Be persistent and work everyday towards your goal. Provide value. Publish case studies in which you analyze the numbers and results you got from following an strategy. One last thing I want to say is there are WordPress plug ins and applications like Snap Share and Buffer which allow you to automate the process of posting your content into the platforms I listed above and some other ones I’m yet to discover. If you join PIPS Stone Evans will talk more about this in his 30-day training series I believe he provides a PAID service by which he integrates social media platforms with SNAP. I will try to do this by myself but I haven’t found any good tutorials on how to do it yet. I’m gone. Is time for breakfast.

PS:
What we are doing is not easy… it takes time and effort. That’s the reason 97% of online businesses fail… people quit when they don’t see quick results. Then they blame the company they joined. The beauty in all of this is that once your blog becomes popular and Google starts sending you organic traffic and as you get better at promoting high quality products then you end up generating income which is far superior to a Job. At that point all the hard work you did will continue to generate residual income for years to come. Best of all, the experience you earn will only make you more successful. I will have something new in the next post. Have a wonderful and productive Tuesday.

Online Sales Pro

Online Sales Pro – OSP Affiliate Marketing | King Digital Lifestyles
As many of you probably know I have been working very hard on building a business. Of all business models I could of chosen I decided an online business through affiliate marketing was the smartest strategy to start off with. The positives include: I don’t have to do the shipping or process returns. I don’t have to process payments. I don’t need to own (or rent) a location to store merchandise. I’m not restricted to a location either (like bidding high for space in a busy mall full of potential customers) since I could leverage social media and the internet to engage thousands of potential customers or use paid advertising solutions. The best of all… an online business can be started with very little capital. If you wanted to open a nail salon for example chances are you would need to invest at the bare minimum $50,000 (since you would likely need a location). Most food franchises easily cost over $200,000 just to start… and some of them like McDonald’s could go over 2.5 million. Gas stations also cost into the millions these days.

Looking five months back when I first started learning about affiliate marketing I came across so much information. It was exhausting. For two months straight I would go to work (1 hour drive [back and forth]), code or fill paperwork for 8 hours, then somehow I would find energy to continue researching, sleep 5 hours, wake up and repeat it all the next day. I learned a lot but I was not learning fast enough. Succeeding in this business takes a very steep learning curve and a lot of trying out and failing. The point I want to make here is that I was trying many different things but I had not yet invested in anything that would help me achieve my goals faster.

Today I want to share a tool I have been using which has been helping build my campaigns and get more leads which results in more sales. In my opinion this is not the ultimate answer to your affiliate marketing needs (or to growing your business) but is a very good place to start. I’m talking about Online Sales Pro which is in some ways similar to leadpages but in my experience more useful in generating leads. Online Sales Pro fits right in between Leadpages and Clickfunnels. This tool offers you means to promote offers of your own and also you can promote the Online Sales Pro app. They also have what I consider medium level training when you join the program including books and videos about affiliate marketing which I already read. Some of the best information I have learned up to this point is exclusive to their program… meaning I haven’t been able to find it anywhere else. Their support team is great. Every time I get stuck, one of the developers looks into my case and they help me figure out what went wrong and ultimately help me fix the issue. Specifically I have been helped to integrate Online Sales Pro with aweber in order to create campaigns which lead to sales. Here are some of the lead capture pages I have created using Online Sales Pro.

Isagenix

And,

Primerica

And here is one of the landing pages the team has created so you can promote their software and earn over 50% in commissions per sale. The software goes for $37 per month which is the same price leadpages goes for (for their entry level functionality). Being a monthly subscription this is residual income so the more sign ups the higher the monthly return. For 10 new sign ups that use the app on a monthly basis you are looking at $250 per month. If you get 100 signups then you are looking at $2500 per month. Since I started using the app just two weeks back I have seen the top leaders get over 100,000 new sign ups and more people will join because is very affordable and useful to build marketing campaigns.

Online Sales Pro Capture Page

I’m no guru in this business. So far I have generated around $1500 in online sales which is not bad considering I have been at this a little less than 5 months. I know of people who took two years of their life going through consistent failure to make their first dollar even after they had invested over $20,000 into their online business (Matt Lloyd comes to mind). In general it takes about six months of consistent effort to start to see some results. Most people who persevere with their online businesses see success after 2 – 3 years of consistent effort and learning. Ultimately, having the right tools will help you reach success much faster and in my experience and opinion Online Sales Pro is one of those tools anyone starting out should be using.

What I would advice you to do if you want to get started in the affiliate marketing right now but you know nothing about the business, is to start with Online Sales Pro. Get the program. Read the books. Review all of their videos. Promote the high converting landing pages the team made for you. As you start to learn how everything works move into other affiliate networks with other categories of products. Use Online Sales Pro to create landing pages for those products and continue to grow from there. Try to go for the snowball effect. At first you won’t get many leads but you will be gaining experience and in time you will have enough knowledge and skill to put your offers in front of the right audience that wants your products and services. You want to look at this business as an spiderweb that grows everyday and the more high quality landing pages you create for premium products the more flies (customers) that will be trapped and be interested in the products and services you offer.

If you look at my links at the top. One is for Isagenix which sells great health and fitness products I have been consuming daily now. My body feels the difference when I feed it with these. The other one is for Primerica which provides financial services and helps families across the United States make money and get out of debt. Some of the people that know me personally ask me why do I join so many networks? My mentors go crazy because I can’t invest my time and energy in just one project or offer. The reason I do this is simple. First I’m trying to educate myself about the market (in general) and the best way to do this is to apply the mantra “What we do… we understand” that’s T. Harv Eker speaking right there. So the only way I could really learn is by doing and becoming part of different businesses. Then I can use that experience to give you an objective opinion and apply all of that accumulated knowledge to grow my own business. The most legendary entrepreneurs and investors out there like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet all agree you must invest in yourself. Becoming part of different businesses is a way to invest in your own education because you learn directly from the source by doing. Tai Lopez has exploded in fame because of his accumulated knowledge (and the cars in the garage videos of course). My end goal is to help others as I help myself succeed by sharing what I have learned.

So to summarize if you want to start affiliate marketing and you don’t know much you should start with Online Sales Pro so you learn how to build campaigns and have access to a system which can help you generate income from the get-go. From there I recommend you to start looking at other affiliate networks so you can expand the products that you can offer. Always keep in mind that you are building a reputation and your success is purely dependent on that reputation which you built for yourself. So you should always promote a product that you use and genuinely find value for. You should always tests the products first before promoting. Anything you don’t want for yourself you should not promote. Once you are generating decent income don’t blow it on a Lamborghini and instead re-invest into your business. Have a high end company (I recommend Katapult Enterprises or MOBE) build you a persona, a brand and a professional business with customized social media accounts for your brand so you can more easily start to set yourself apart from the other businesses and become recognized globally.

Note: Those of you who are dead broke Online Sales Pro is in my opinion the best starting point because you don’t need to invest in hosting, domains, websites, payment system software and you will have access to a great tool and training. As you find success with Online Sales Pro you should look into Fiver so you can create a lower end cheaper website to start off your brand. Then as more success comes your way you want a high end company with a team of experts like Katapult Enterprises or MOBE help you attain a strong brand with Global market presence.

All of my top mentors tell me (at the start) that at the bare minimum 40% of all of my profits need to go back to re-investing on my business. This is the trick to scaling quick and to generating millions. A profit of $100, becomes $300, then that $300 becomes $500… and so on. This happens after you have already set the foundations for your business and have campaigns running which are successful. At this point is all about getting your offers in front of the right customer. This is where paid advertising will give you the edge to continue to grow.

If you are ready to join Online Sales Pro you can join using my affiliate link:
Join Online Sales Pro!

The last thing I want to leave you with is that if you aim to make $100,000… or one million dollar per month as an affiliate marketer (which is totally possible)… then you must consistently learn and try new approaches to marketing. On my next post I will have some new insights and tips to share with you. By the way… all my landing pages to grow my list (click below) I do them with Online Sales Pro without going through hassle. Is as easy as uploading a picture and editing the text and URLs to what you need to link to or promote. If you get stuck or can’t figure out how to do something contact their customer support.

The Key to Building an Organization [Personal Branding]

Self Advertising – Self Promotion | King Digital Lifestyles
Welcome back to your Home Business blog. A couple days back we talked about using the power of the Press Release in order to advertise viral launches. This strategy works best for individuals that learn how to write outstanding press releases which are well formatted and information rich and thus catch the attention of journalist and news media who are looking for fresh content to publish or report on. Today I want to talk about another strategy you should be using to grow your business which is that of personal branding.

Something you should understand is that people don’t join a logo, business or organization for the sake of joining. Most professional marketers that have build successful organizations throughout the centuries agreed that “People join People”. More specifically People join leaders who are honest, confident, committed to success and upbeat with positive attitude. Let’s suppose you already have all these traits and you are also a great communicator, who is also both intuitive and creative… you have all the traits you would need to build your own organization and reach your dream of financial freedom early on.

In my quest to find financial freedom I have attracted to my life many great leaders whom I have learned from. The most successful ones have dedicated a big chunk of their time to building a personal brand. A great example of a wonderful leader, who built their organization from the ground up and mastered personal branding to build a corporation is Dr. Zoe who is the CEO/chief in command and head coach at Katapult Enterprises. She has been a great resource towards my personal growth and development of leadership skills through her Life Coaching program.

Anyhow, building a personal brand is not only useful to grow your corporation. Well established corporations like Primerica that handle billions in assets are always on the lookout for premium caliber leaders who commit to learning about life insurance and investing so they can train new representatives and build their organizations. Becoming an skilled agent takes time and effort but for those who persevere and build their organization with fresh leads to train the sky is truly the limit because the end result is residual income on all the sales of those people you train. Imagine earning 10 to 15% of every single deal handled by a partner your took the time to train. How much could you earn if you trained say… 100 people?

You can also use personal branding to become the face of an entire organization. Pat Flynn for example has become the face of Bluehost and has generated over one million in commissions from selling their hosting services. Tai Lopez is known to join business ventures in which their partners put down the initial investment capital and take care of running the business. His role? Tai uses the massive following he has built through his personal brand in order to meet his part of the deal and advertise the products and services associated to the business venture. That’s the TRUE POWER of building a solid personal brand – once you reach celebrity status it becomes easy to promote just about any business in all sorts of niches because you already have many followers. If you ever reach celebrity status be ethical.

You don’t want to be careless about your reputation. John McAfee who had reached god-like authority in the cryptocurrency space seems not to care anymore about ethics. He will promote any shitcoin as long as he gets paid 25 Bitcoin upfront and 15% of the profits made from scamming his loyal followers. I used to follow him until I learned this is what he has been doing. When it comes to cryptocurrencies you need to be very careful especially if there is a referral program in place because it usually is those people who reach celebrity status and can bring in lots of leads that will make the money from commission bonuses and then when everything collapses it will be you who is left without anything.

NOTE: According to Bitcoin advocate Andreas Antonopoulos about 99.9% of all ICO’s and crypto-related opportunities are scams designed to take advantage of the success of real cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. There is lots of great companies and technologies developing in this space but is like finding a needle in a haystack so educating yourself is very important. What I can tell you is the legitimate companies are working to solve complicated problems which will help all of humanity. Right now there is over 2 Billion people worldwide who don’t have access to banks or financial services who will benefit from cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. What if you wanted to send a relative of yours $50 every time it was their birthday automatically without even thinking about it? Blockchain technology which runs smart contracts can do this. What if you could rent some of your unused bandwidth or hard drive storage and only pay a rate which is proportional to the amount of bandwidth consumed in a month instead of a fixed rate? Some companies are using blockchain technology to solve these and many other problems and it will be these companies that go on to become the next Uber or Airbnb – companies which disrupt the marketplace as we know it. Jeff Berwick thinks we should be more careful because he believes the big banks actually want to use blockchain technology to release a universal currency which is able to tracks all transactions and thus tax every form of exchange. There is always this duality about technology… while some people use it for good others look to take advantage.

Going back to the topic of personal branding now I want to give you a few tips as to how you can boost your personal brand. Something I learned early on is that you can be frugal with just about everything but not with your business. You see, if you don’t present yourself correctly and invest into proper advertising then your brand will never grow to its real potential. Those who are broke and don’t have much money… a service I can recommend you is Fiverr. In Fiverr you can order all sorts of marketing material including company logos, a cartoon of yourself, professionally edited videos, professionally written blog posts, E-Boook covers, Facebook covers and wallpapers… and many other material you can use to brand yourself starting as low as $5 per job. Some people even use fiverr to order comments to their blog posts and Facebook likes to their Facebook business pages in hopes to make their brand appear much bigger than it actually is. I stay away from this practice because building a fake following won’t benefit me in the long run. However you should take advantage of the other strategies to build your brand. Katapult Enterprises is also another great source which offers premium grade branding services if you want to check them out.

Using these type of services you can give your brand the professional image it needs for constant growth. One of the biggest advantages to investing in personal branding is you will find more success in generating leads from places like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram and this will lead to more commission bonuses and faster growth to build your organizations and business ventures. This is one of those cases where your investment will multiply your results as more people will engage with your brand and join the organizations and services you promote. That’s what I have experienced for myself so far.

NOTE: Some of the best marketers I know tell me they focus on direct advertising via platforms like Facebook because it allows them to introduce themselves in a way which results in higher changes of success. If you are able to build a strong Facebook profile/brand in particular, which shows your values and commitment to helping others succeed then you will be automatically be perceived as more trustworthy when you post a links on Facebook groups or message potential leads and clients. You can expect to receive more positive responses than if you sent an email or if you posted a link to an add. As a general rule of thumb you should try to engage as much as you can with your leads and potential clients using Facebook, Skype or via phone calls in order to build a basis for trust. Email is a powerful marketing tool but it doesn’t build trust.

The last thing I want to leave you with in this post is a link to a very helpful post I found earlier this week. As you will see, the author shares a huge list of Facebook groups related to marketing, home business opportunities and many other niches where you can find the right audience to promote useful products to or to show the business opportunities you are currently advertising. I have some friends who have been able to scale their businesses to $10,000+ per month by sharing their products and services in such groups. Join today… and start promoting as soon as the administrators grants your account access to the group. Another strategy is to create a new Facebook account and use that one to promote instead. Some people do this because they fear their main account will get banned due to spamming. Right now I plan to promote in 30 groups per day maximum to reduce the likelihood of having my Facebook account banned. Facebook has over 1 Billion active users, 50% of which log every single day and as such is a great source to generate traffic to your websites and offers along with Traffic Exchanges and Viral Mailers. Some people even use software which would post pre-written content on Facebook groups. That’s all I got for today. I’m off to a two mile run.

PS: If you are involved with Digital Altitudes read this post. If you are looking for another opportunity look into this one. If you are active with Traffic Exchanges check your banner adds and websites as some hackers compromised a number of accounts and are running traffic to their websites instead of yours.

The Power Of The Press Release

Viral Content – News Brodcast | King Digital Lifestyles
I give you a warm welcome to our home business blog. Today I should write a post which is both short and sweet. A few days back we discussed how to generate income from product launches. We have also talked about traffic exchanges, viral mailers and platforms like Pinterest which can help grow organic traffic. Today I want to talk about a heavily underused traffic source which could prove real useful in scaling your business especially if you have some budget to invest.

I’m talking about no other than the Press Release. A press release is a well formatted and informative document which is sent to journalists and news media outlets for possible coverage. Some press release services are free while others offer premium services which can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. If you master the skills of writing useful press releases you will find your information being exposed in well established and high quality blogs and news channels which are looking for credible news to report on. You could make a Press Release when you open a new store, bring to the market a new product or release a new service.

NOTE: I haven’t tested this myself (yet)… but this is an idea I will be trying as a core component in my marketing strategy. You see, I’m an associate with multiple companies and often times there is a feed of new projects, products and services which are being introduced to the markets which get little to no media coverage. I will leverage press releases to promote those services I’m most heavily involved with.

Anyhow, if you recall in the post about product launches I talked about a platform known as muncheye which has a listing of fresh products currently being released. If you master the art of writing press releases I’m confident you could write about these product launches (and many others) and have mass media broadcast the news on your behalf. You could use URL shorteners like tinyurl, bitly, pretty links or google url shortener in order to turn your ugly affiliate link into a nicer looking link for people who become interested in the products to click on. If you can’t get the URL you want you can also try using clickmagick which you have more power to customize and is also a premium grade tracking tool that can provide professional reports on click activity. So far the research I have made on this topic shows me many Press Releases go unnoticed but remember… you have so many products and all you need is one to go viral once to get you making decent money which you can reinvest back into your business. A rule I see is at the start your should reinvest at least 60% of the profits back into your business if you want to scale fast.

Now, if you have never written a press release before (myself included) then we need to be smart about this and get some practical experience (training). The two free press release websites I can recommend you to try based on what I have learned so far are:
1- PRLog.org
2- PR.com

The reason to pick those over other ones is because there is a bigger pool of parties who search those databases and also SEO back linking is optimized. As far as I have learned up to this point some press release websites could hurt your SEO strategy if back links are not optimized with high quality blogs and authority websites.

As you gain practical experience writing press releases and learning what works the next step would be to use a paid service that can broadcast your message to even more media outlets. The two paid services I can recommend right now purely based on the research I have made are:
1- PRWeb
2- PRNewswire

This is the tip I have for today. In another article I will probably talk more about this strategy and the results I get with it. Leave me some comments below if this strategy works well for you. Talk next time.

After 34 hours of learning with little to no sleep at Mango Hacks my brain still feels taxed. I could probably sleep for a week now. If you have been involved with affiliate marketing and the world of doing online sales then I bet by now you have heard the phrase “Time is Money” – ehem! wrong “TRAFFIC is Money“. The reality is… the more users that engage with your websites and offers the more earning potential for your brand and your business. Neil Patel and other big bloggers and self made entrepreneurs lead with the ideology that CONTENT IS KING, meaning that if you produce high quality content be videos, blogs or pictures sooner or later search engines will catch on to this and send you lots of valuable traffic. This is how you get to create a six and 7-figure business – by making content which is likely to go viral and monetizing the surge in traffic. One of the best examples of blogs that exploit this model to the maximum is TMZ which generates over 20 million dollars a year covering just about any news that could go viral.

The reality is, in this day and age with social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter or platforms like YouTube and Pinterest the task of going viral has become much easier, but competition has also increased… so you have to think of outstanding content to see biggest benefits. TMZ takes maximum advantage of social media outlets, the press and news blogs to benefit from the surge in traffic. Let me give you some of the tips you can use to improve your chances of success and kick-start your newly released online business into a virtual money-printing machine.

The first and most important advise shared by authority bloggers in this space is you want to become an expert in a particular topic or niche. Once you are an expert you will find more reputable sources link back to your content and they will also want to interview you or have you as a guest on their podcast. This will generate traffic interested in the activities your are doing and the products you are promoting.

You also need to understand… that content these days is moving from text format (like regular blog posts) to picture rich infographics, videos and podcasts. Over 90% of all information has been published (and created) in the last 20 years (due to computer adoption and the Internet)… and this trend continues to grow exponentially due to increased accessibility and innovation (causing information overload). This is why marketers and businesses alike are adopting new strategies to share valuable content following the rule to minimize the amount of time visitors have to spend in order to consume the information. To make maters more complicated our world spins faster than ever before in the sense people live busier lives and and they don’t have time to engage reading or watching long videos. Most individuals these days resort to multi-tasking in order to find time. Reading books these days has become synonymous with listening to audio books while commuting to work and new information is learned from podcasts and videos which allow for multi-tasking.

NOTE: If your main goal for your business is to produce visual content to post on YouTube then you will want to produce longer videos because the most important metric right now has to do with the minutes your subscribers (and viewers) spend watching the videos you post. You should also adopt a regular publishing schedule so people know when to look at your channel and find freshly published content.

So that was the second tip. PRODUCE CONTENT which is SHORT and to the POINT and try to convey valuable information with every line you write and every video frame you share. Also you should summarize your content into inforgraphics to post on places like pinterest (linking back to your articles)… good info-graphics get shared all the time adding to the viral factor. You can also record the information you want to share in a short video and post it into places like Facebook and YouTube. A good example of a short video which was designed to go viral (and went viral) is The Life of an Entrepreneur in 90 Seconds. Please note viral means to do 5+ million views 3-5 days after publishing the content.

Releasing podcasts is also a very good strategy because it adds to the multi-tasking factor (from the viewer perspective) and it becomes easier to create questions to interview your podcast guest than to actually write content or create videos. This is one way to leverage the knowledge and skill of other people (to interview them). Some of the greats (Gary Vaynerchuk comes to mind) resort to having a camera following them most of the day. Then the highlights of the long video are edited and published resulting in abundant fresh content to keep followers entertained. Gary will tell you to DOCUMENT (rather than create). Film what happens around you and you will have fresh content. Another fact is these days podcasts and interview shows are proliferating because the host can continue to produce great content as long as they can find new popular guests to talk on the shows.

This leads me to tip number two. LEVERAGE the work of other content creators. Now I don’t suggest you to create a channel and just re-post the videos other people spent their time, money and energy creating. I don’t encourage you to copy and paste a whole blog post someone made and submit it as yours into the Steemit platform. But you can definitely take some of the information and video clips created by other bloggers and enrich your content by re-sharing it. Something I normally do now is to link to articles created by other relevant online marketers so I can benefit my audience from their content and slowly start to build myself as an authority in this niche. You see – a way to build AUTHORITY is to share the content of AUTHORITY FIGURES. This practice turns you into a VALUABLE source of information. This is one of the key strategies to having big name blogs share a link to your content and helping you expose your brand and business further to the masses – building authority credentials. Google also likes it when you link to reputable sources resulting in good SEO practice which improve rankings.

Something you should realize is that starting out is very hard because you likely have no contacts, no money, no brand and no authority. When I think of people like Jeff Berwick for example, I understand that a big chunk of their continuous success is the fact they have become insiders who have contacts (many sources) that provide sensational information that can be used to put out viral content. You see… the way this works is the media and big news blogs compete to broadcast news about sensational content first (before all other outlets) to get their audiences engaged and receive credit for publishing the information first. Develop the skill to share content which makes it on the news and you will receive continuous stream of traffic you can monetize.

Ultimately the best strategy is to serve millions of people by providing valuable content which is humorous, entertains or educates. This brings me back to Traffic Exchanges, Safelists and Viral Mailers. The reason why you should use them is because on the niche of affiliate marketing and online sales all of these are optimal resources for cheap traffic and growing your list. At traffic exchanges you can find high converting offers you could promote for yourself and some of the best marketers will give you free e-books with high quality information. Often times they will try to sell you something (that’s the end goal)… but I always try to take whatever if free if I can benefit from the information in some way and then maybe I buy something from them later. Another great reason to use traffic exchanges is because the owners are seasoned marketers with technical experience in software engineering practices and advertising.

For example, I published this post Make Traffic Exchanges Great Again on various places but it ranked the most at my user blog in TEListbuilder. Many other blog posts I also published there which have not ranked anywhere else are also quickly starting to climb to the top of searches for their related keywords. What does this imply? It means the people behind TEListbuilder are very good at SEO practices and back linking and as a result they are perceived as a better source of information to Google. So if you are thinking of writing content I suggest you to start with the TEListbuilder program… and then as your own website starts to grow and rank well change your strategy to share a summary of your blog post everywhere else and the whole post only at your website. You want to do this because Google doesn’t like duplicate content so a short summary with a link will serve you better. That’s the strategy I currently use in the Steemit platform because ultimately I want active users in this website and not in a platform which is outside of my control.

An even bigger advantage to using traffic exchanges is the owners collaborate and form partnerships. Whenever I read newsletters from Robert Puddy or Tony Tezak they always share a promo code or a cross promotion I can use to score on some free advertising. The same happens with most other traffic exchange owners. Traffic coming from exchanges is not the best there is but using cross promotions you can target a wider pool of members and keep a fresh pool visitors who are being exposed to your content. Surveys have shown that on average you need to propose a plan of action 7 times in order to make a sale or gain a new follower or subscriber (unless a person knows you and finds you trustable). In short… if you are just starting out and you don’t have much money to spend on advertising you should take MAXIMUM advantage of traffic exchanges and cross promotions (read TE owners newsletters) because the more times your website is being exposed to other users the bigger the likelihood they will take action in joining your list or becoming interested in your products. I have scored over 18,000 page views (recorded in my google analytics) and all of it comes from traffic exchanges or viral mailers. Over 50% of all my traffic is in the form of new visitors.

NOTE: To be brutally honest with you people that surf traffic exchanges are not the best audience in terms of engagement. My click through rate averages to about 83% from this traffic source (which is not great) because it means 83 percent of people that land on this website look at only the page they landed on. They are in a rush to claim credits. However, this traffic source alone has generated over a thousand regular visitors in less than one month. I’m also bringing 7K-8000 fresh visitors per month. The funny thing in these statistics is that I have been dumb enough not to take advantage of cross promotions because I was too busy surfing instead of reading the newsletters of the traffic exchange owners. Now I will change my strategy to exploit cross promotions and in this way I will find myself investing less time surfing and generating lots more traffic for each second I spend surfing. Cross promotions usually result in free advertising like bonus banner adds, text credits and surf credits for surfing a certain amount of pages at two or more exchanges. Text credits are most valuable if you know how to write good text adds because only the users interested will click on them. Well designed banner adds can also convert in the 5-10% range when posted in busy traffic exchanges. One last thing I want to say is that even at 20 cents per click… all the page views I got so far would be worth close to $4,000. Supporting my statement that traffic exchanges are amazing value.

When it comes to safelists and viral mailers don’t look at this as a slaving machine where you need to click links to get credits. That’s not the right mindset. In the contrary, when I use viral mailers I read the emails to see what the users are promoting and how they promote it. I don’t recommend you to steal their adds but something you should do is pay attention to their headlines and how they promote their offers and you can use that as a starting point to create your own adds. If you get lots of clicks to an offer you are promoting this is an indicator that people are interested and perhaps you should experiment using other methods like Google Adwords and Facebook Ads to see how this offer converts. Perhaps you are able to recover advertising cost! Which should be your main goal. Then from there have your autoresponder promote new offers.

NEW NOTE: My game-plan is to continue surfing and sending emails regularly until I have 100,000 regular visitors engaging with this website. Right now I have over 8,500 recurring visitors (according to Google analytics) and my click-through rate keeps improving as I add more content. It won’t be too long until Google starts sending me lots of organic traffic if they continue to see engagement with this website. Pinterest lately has also begun sending me traffic as my home business board has started ranking in the platform. Once I have 50,000+ organic visits per month it is very likely I won’t continue surfing as much and instead I will fully focus on creating content and learning more. What you should take from this if any. The strategies I’m sharing with you are a way to get things going right now without spending lots of money. As your presence online grows and you start generating more income then you have more room to try other methods which cost more but don’t require your energy, time and effort to sustain. So far I have invested a little over $350 in traffic exchanges/viral mailers and I have got in return thousands of dollars in value because I have been willing to surf the exchanges and look for promotional codes.

One particular way I use viral mailers is to score on tons of free advertising. You see… in order to stand out marketers are forced to give out amazing deals so often times I find free promo codes I can redeem for text adds, banner adds, credits or even cash in a few instances because a new Exchange Owner ran a promotion giving out cash to new members in order to grow the community.

Once you are able to efficiently generate traffic you put yourself in a position to create revenue by running CPM advertising which is a model in which you will be paid a pre-determined amount of money every time a third party add is shown exactly 1000 times. This is guaranteed way of making money online if you can generate lots of traffic. You can also run CPC (cost per click) adds which pay you when a visitor clicks on an add for a third party visitor and you can also run CPA which we already covered. Right now I don’t run CPM advertising but this is something I will consider in the future as this website matures and I find brands interested in running their adds on this website. Something else I also need to do sooner or later is to switch hosting to a premium hosting service in order to compete with the best blogs in this niche. Right now I don’t post many pictures because it slows my site to turtle speed. Same goes for video… and picture rich opt-in forms. A big ranking factor for Google is USER EXPERIENCE. Users have better experience when they are exposed to content rich in pictures and videos but it does no good if it takes a minute to load… by then they will be gone so investing in premium hosting is absolutely necessary if you want to compete with the big boys in your niche.

This post turned out longer than I expected I have been writing for a good 3 hours or so. As always I hope the information is useful to you and I will see you next time with more content to help you grow your business. I hope we all survive the crashing of the marketsmore on that later.
