From the Editor
Well, I've been working on a presentation for Thursday. I'm on a program with a VP from Yahoo!, so I need to be on my best game *8>)
Been playing with WordPress plug ins and I'm not pleased! Every time I get WordPress up and running and looking good, it crashes as soon as I add plug ins. OnlyWire seems to be the biggest culprit. I set everything up without it, and TinyMCE didn't work. Then it couldn't find my pages. I'm about to quite trying to use plug ins and run WordPress naked *8>(
I am always working to get a higher placement for my sites on the search engines. I am not always successful in getting my sites on the first page of Google. About a month ago I read a new ebook on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and picked up a couple of tips. I was really surprised to find that the three sites where I used the new ideas on jumped from lacklustre placements to the first page on Google, and first place on Yahoo. I ran out and bought the rights to the ebook. If you need some SEO tips for your sites, you can find the ebook on Ebooks and More *8>)
Guru? Who? You!
To become a successful entrepreneur on the Internet, you need to establish yourself as a trustworthy expert (guru) in your chosen niche. A newsletter is probably the first way that comes to mind. You can understand why. Each newsletter you email out is a fresh opportunity to grow your reputation as a source of accurate information. You can grow your reputation quite nicely with a newsletter. A few years ago, a newsletter was all you needed to establish your reputation. Today however, you build your reputation much more slowly with a newsletter, because not everyone will read each issue or your newsletter.
To grow your reputation more rapidly, you need to use a variety of methods. Writing articles and posting them to free article directories like www.articledirectory.com. The value is in the signature file that you are allowed to attach to the end of the article. This signature file should consist of three to five lines of mouthwatering prose about your site and your website URL.
Another good way to advertise your knowledge of your chosen niche is to create a free ebook with lots of good content, and of course the requisite links to your site. I find that direct sales links return only a smattering of inquiries, while links to my newsletter return subscribers quite well. Once you have your free ebook, you can post it to one of the free ebook directories. I prefer to use them as a gift for joining my list. If the ebook is of a high quality, you can also sign up for one of the JV giveaways and give your book away here in return for signing up for your newsletter.
Have you got a blog? If not, you’re missing one of the best opportunities available to the Internet marketer. The more time and effort that you put into your blog, the more valuable it becomes. Some marketers go as far as to buy articles to post on a daily basis. The big thing to remember about a blog - once you have your posts, and tagged them correctly - is that you must advertise it vigorously just as if it were another product for sale.
Fortunately, there are a number of services that will help you reach the Internet masses. You should certainly ping the major blog directories every time that you make a post as the search engines love blogs and index the blog directories almost every minute. Any blog that you post and ping could appear in the major search engines in under an hour. Don't know anything about blogging? Well, have I got a deal for you - always wanted to say that *8>) I have a set of videos using the roller-coaster pricing script HERE . If you are willing to reload the page, you should be able to get it for less than $10.
Posting quality videos on YouTube.com is the current “hot” way to build your reputation. Spend 10 or 15 minutes making a video in which you share some valuable information in your niche, post it on YouTube.com and it will work for you as long as the information remains valuable. The key is to make sure that the information you share is indeed valuable. You should repeat this one regularly to enhance your reputation. Whenever one of your videos is viewed, a list of your other videos will appear with it. Instant guru status! The more videos, the greater the perceived knowledge.
FLASH! I just bought the MRR rights to a fantastic ebook on how to make your own videos and how to get them shown on YouTube.com. It’s so new that I don't have a website for it. Look for an email on Friday about it.
That’s it. If you want to become a recognized expert, the best advice I can give you came from Nike, “Just do it!”
