New and young heros, who are they?  hero

 

We live in a 21st century. The internet is a great tool and gives us so much opportunities. But do we take control of it? Or are we blind and lead by others?

 

Young people start new journey on the net and achieve  a great success. But there are also millions of people who try the same, but they fail. Why?

 

Because the way to succees is long and curly. Those who have clear targets and go stpe by step they will succeed. You must be open minded and be patient if you want be successful. Young and old heros are everywhere, but there are more blinded who only dream, but are afraid to work hard and wait for the momentum.

If you will be patient and not lazy you will find the best of the net, but you must work hard.

 

I know you will be heros soon, but what is your recepie for success? I would love to hear.

 

And share it if you think this post can help someone chose the right path.

 

See you on top.

Hi my dear friends,

how was your day?

 

The health is the most treasures thing on the earth. But you must help yourself.

You must take care of your health. Nowbody will help you the most as yourself. You must keep fit and eat healthy. You must be active and not only sit by the tv or laptop. And you can do it, but it is not easy as everything in life!

 

You work to earn money, you eat and drink to live and you must also care for your body.

 

Recently I neglected the healthy point on  this blog but I see I must come back to it and I’m doing this now.

 

I don’t want to bore you, so stop now, and stand up and do some exercises. And if you care, share this with others.

 

See you next time in a better shape.

3 Simple Ways to Get More Offline Clients  clients

 

Obtaining clients can appear to be a difficult challenge for many businesses, entrepreneurs and freelancers. But the key factor in obtaining these clients is to think outside of the box.

Below are three simple ways to get more clients in order to maximize your business’s potential.

 

Encourage Referrals

Encourage your friends, family members and current clients to give referrals. In return you could give a bonus for every lead that converts.

Host a contest to reward the top referring person or persons. Word-of-mouth referring is one of the best marketing strategies as it is one of the least expensive, yet most effective lead generators.

Attach Marketing Items to All Correspondence

When you send an email, make sure your signature lines include all relevant contact/connect information, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media profile links.

Include a link to your blog or website with a short description of a current or upcoming promotion of new products and services. Additionally, attach your marketing materials to invoices, payment reminders and other outgoing correspondence.

 

Take Advantage of Free Advertising

Sites such as Craigslist and eBay are excellent channels of scoring offline clients. It costs nothing to post an ad in the general or small business sections of your local Craigslist page. Many people forget to utilize eBay’s free classifieds to advertise.

To maximize your success of attracting potential customers, make your ad more visually appealing with images. You don’t have to know Photoshop and other high-caliber software to do so. If you’re not looking to hire a freelancer to design your ad but you are familiar with Microsoft PowerPoint or Publisher, you can design your own ad and generate an HTML code for your image by simply uploading it to sites such as Photobucket.

Obtaining clients offline requires effort, consistency and often creativity. When one strategy seems useless, re-strategize by researching ways that have proven effective. Make sure you have a marketing plan that includes some current marketing trends and modify it accordingly.

 

Do you have a clear plan about your business? If yes, share it with us or if not, are you going to prepare one soon?

I’m waitning for your thoughts and share it with your friends if you see value here.

 

Thank you and see you on top.

How To Research A Niche Market  nichemarket

 

 

Getting people to your website is a very important skill. It’s not just about writing content and generating a buzz around it, although those are important skills too.

The work begins way before you start writing on your site, as you need to find the perfect niche – the subject of your website. Niche research is about finding profitable subjects that are broad enough to write enough content about, yet narrow enough for you to become an authority on the topic.

 

A great way to establish the popularity of a niche market is to use the Google AdWords keyword tool. Simply type in the name of the niche and you will see the number of searches performed each month, along with lots of related keywords.

If you sign in to the tool, you will also see the average price you would expect to pay to advertise on the front page of Google for each term. This should give you a feel for how much money there is to be made in the niche you have chosen to research.

There are a number of ways to find out how much competition you will face if you launch a site in a particular niche market. For a very quick and broad estimation, simply search for the niche name in speech marks in Google.

The higher the number of results returned, the more competition is out there. Of course, this doesn’t give you much insight into the quality of the competition, just the quantity.

 

To get a more reliable indication of how tough a keyword will be to rank for in search results, there are free tools to download, popular ones include Market Samurai and Traffic Travis. These will analyze things like how many inbound links are pointing to sites already ranking for the niche terms.

This gives a far more accurate picture of competition, but can take a while to fully research.

 

By doing your niche research properly, you will save time and effort. Focusing on the wrong markets will usually result in poor results, namely profit. When you find a niche market with plenty of search volume, good advertiser spend and relatively low competition, you have truly found your niche.

 

I hope you know now, how to find a niche for yourself. But how did you strat? Please, share with us your thoughts about your research, what tool have you  used or where did you look for advice or anything?

 

Thank you and see you next time.

Your business cannot thrive online if you don’t know how to generate targeted traffic to your website. Here are your top 5 traffic generation gems.

 

1. Build an email list:

After building your business website the next most important thing you need is a mailing list. A mailing list is the lifeblood of your online business sales my friend.

It is often said and rightly so that the money is in the list. You need to get a good auto-responder service provider to help manage your mailing list efficiently. I use Aweber. Try it now for a $1!

 

2. You need to start a business promotion blog:

No business can survive without aggressive marketing and promotion on and offline. The best known tool for online business website promotion is a blog. Use the blog to generate unique and high quality content focusing on your niche market.

You should also use the blog to teach and inform your target market about your product or service. The major function of a business promotion blog is to send targeted traffic to the main site. My other blog is at http://erwinmentel.com

 

3. Make use of article marketing to generate targeted traffic:

Article marketing is a highly effect way of generating qualified traffic to you business website. It is easy, simple and profitable method of driving useful visitors to your site.

All you need is to write unique and high quality 500 words long articles and submit them to various article directories on the internet.

4. Video Marketing is an essential tool for traffic generation:

Video marketing is the best method that you can use to generate targeted traffic to your business site. People are lazy by nature and they prefer listening than to read articles on an irritating and tiring computer screen.

People trust human beings better than text messages my friend. A video marketing lets you communicate face to face with your customers. This helps to increase trust and thus leads conversion rates. You may want to work with YouTube. And Camtasia is your friend here as well.

 

5. Social Media Marketing:

You need to open user accounts on various social media and social networks like Facebook and twitter. Social platforms are a major source of traffic if done properly and professionally.

These platforms have millions of members and if used well you can drive huge chunks of targeted traffic to your business website to grow sales and revenue generation.
