6 Effective Tips on Posting Non-Spam Comments to Drive Targeted Traffic to Your Website

Traffic Most people know these days that leaving comments on websites and blogs are one good way of driving targeted traffic to your website. But what few people don’t know is that there are good and bad comments to post and if you happen to post one of the latter, it could be enough to ruin your reputation for good. You could be banned from these websites and turn off prospective customers permanently. Comments can drive targeted traffic to your website, but only if you really know what to do.

Read What’s Been Posted

Don’t write any comments without taking careful consideration of what the writer has been said. Neither he nor the other readers would appreciate if you unthinkingly posted a comment that only echoed the content of the entry.

To Comment or Not to Comment

Consider the information that’s been provided. Is there anything relevant that you might add? Here are a number of ideas for you to base your comments on. If an entry is focused on one point of view or perspective, think of another perspective, not necessarily opposing though, that could make readers see the entry in a whole new light.

You could also provide insightful anecdotes or examples to ideas outlined in the post or entry. If possible, provide examples that clearly show how you not only understood the concepts explained by the writer but how you’ve also been able to apply them in real life.

If a question has been posted by the writer, that’s one clear sign that comments would be appreciated and you definitely have to answer that question. If suggestions or remarks have been requested then yes, of course, you should give your two cents worth.

Quality over Quantity

Don’t aim for posting the greatest number of comments each day. Concentrate instead of making quality comments. Choose carefully which websites or blogs you wish to leave comments on. Make sure that when you do leave a comment, it’s something that people would appreciate and benefit from.

Keep It Brief and Concise

Comment boxes are just that , fields made available for you to post your comments on. They are not there for you to write a whole new article. If you discovered a new idea because of the entry, you should just write a comment detailing the gist of your new and related work then provide a link to it instead.

Make Small Changes to Your Comments

If you’ve come across a series of related articles or entries and you only have one opinion about them, it’s better to just post a single informative comment for the entire series rather than posting the same comment for each article in the series. If you really care about the number of comments you make though, then make sure that you incorporate small changes to your comments. It will prevent you from being labeled as a spammer.

Don’t Forget Proper Grammar

Although this has nothing to do with having your comments labeled as SPAM, it’s highly important that you write grammatically correct and concise comments. Doing otherwise could terribly harm your reputation. Take note of your spelling and punctuation. Last but not the least, don’t forget to double-check your comments in a word processor or anything with a grammar check mechanism.

How To Pick a Legitimate Home Business Opportunity

Home business

How To Pick a Legitimate Home Business Opportunity: You’ve seen the emails, the offers, the promises and the claims. Everyone it seems has a way to help you make money online.

But how do you know who you can trust? How do you know what system works? How do you protect yourself? The fact is that you CAN earn money online from legitimate sources, here’s what to look for when picking an online business opportunity.

Products or Services with actual value

Many companies including large companies like Amazon and ClickBank offer what is known as an Affiliate marketing program, or sometimes called a Reseller program. This allows you to promote a company’s products or services and earn a commission when a sale is made through your website link. The key in knowing what is legitimate is to be sure you are actually promoting a real product, or a digital product, or an actually service. Beware of selling anything that seems without substance, and has no real market value. An example of something suspect would be getting paid to recruit people into a program who have not paid any money to do so. All business online and off works when there is an exchange of money for a product or service. Pyramid schemes exist online and off and are an example of focus on recruitment into a program rather then the sale of an actual product. In the case of a pyramid scheme, and example is someone paying to join a program but receives no product or service of REAL value in return. In short, make sure that you are actually selling something of value.

Customer Service and Support

Legitimate companies that sell actual products and services will support or service what they sell. In other words, good companies will have a Customer Support Department, or a Service Department or Technical Support division to assist customers who have either bought a product or intend to do so. Reputable companies offer this support in any number of ways, online chat, support forums, Twitter, Facebook, telephone support, or online support.

Time in business

Legitimate business opportunities most trustworthy are often those that have stood the test of time. On the web it is very easy to set up a company, sell questionable products and services, then disappear into the night when the business practices come into question. When picking an online business opportunity select a company that has been around for at least a few years. Companies that continue to exist are usually those that demonstrate an interest in keeping their customers happy, are accountable, and adhere to policy and legislation that permits them to provide a product or service.

Reputation

When picking a reputable business opportunity people will often look to review sites for feedback from others. This can offer you some interesting details about what people think about a company and how the company responds to complaints. In reading the reviews though keep an open mind knowing that no company exists without complaints against it. Good companies that you would want to associate with, are those that try to address customer complaints or resolve issues brought to their attention. People with an axe to grind will sometime post negative reviews and hide in the anonymity of that post. So be smart when reading review sites, and look for dates, patterns or themes and try to separate the intelligent comments from the less helpful and questionable ones.

Look before you leap in your Home Business

When you decide on which business opportunity you wish to join, be sure to take your time and read over what you are agreeing to before you sign on the dotted line or hit the submit button. Determine what your up front cost is, your monthly cost (if any), your ongoing cost? What happens if you want to cancel, is there a guarantee, or is there any long term obligation or a penalty for cancelling? Find out how your sales will be tracked, how often will you paid, for which services and how will you be paid.

In summary, here are 5 questions to ask yourself for any company you are considering for a home business opportunity.

1. How long has the company been in business? What is their reputation?

2. What is the product or service you will be selling? What is the value in the market place? There should ALWAYS be a product or service being sold. 3. What is the initial cost to get started in the business? What do you get for that amount of money? What are the ongoing costs?

4. What kind of support or service will you receive as an Affiliate Marketer or Reseller for the company to help you make sales? What kind of support of service will the people you refer receive when they make a purchase?

5. How much money are you paid by this company when you make a sale, how often, and how will your sales be tracked?

These questions and information contained within are a guideline to help you make a smart decision about an online business opportunity that is right for you.

One final bit of advise. Once you have found a company to represent be sure to be realistic about your earnings and accept some responsibility for your own success. At the end of the day, your success comes down to you, and your efforts. It won’t matter what business opportunity you select if you don’t take the time to learn about the program, learn how to market online, and make an honest consistent effort to build your own success.

I hope this has helped you so you can select one or more legitimate companies and you can join the growing population of people making money at home using the power of the web.

Money-making Schemes with Your Captivating Ebook

You can never underestimate the power of the ebooks. After all, there are too many benefits a reader can get from them. First of all, they’re quite easy to make. As long as you have a topic to write about, outline, and a compiler or converter, you’re good to go. Also, you can allow your ebook to earn higher revenue for you and your business.

Here are the different ways on how you can increase your profits by selling or creating your own ebook:

1. Create your own ebook. This is one of the traditional ways on how you can earn your money through your ebook. You can then sell them for a good price, depending on your topic. Easier ones can go as low as $5; those that are more difficult to discuss can be as expensive as $20. Nevertheless, you can’t simply produce your own ebook. There are a number of things that you have to consider.

First of all, it’s ideal if you can develop your outline. This is to ensure that you don’t get lost while you’re in the process of building up your pages. Because you’re banking on your contents, you also have to focus on your writing style. The best-sellers are those that sound conversational, where technical terms are carefully explained in layman’s terms. You can also try to add some images and tables to further emphasize the different points of your ebook. Don’t forget to include subheadings. It will be more convenient for your readers to scan and read your ebook. After all, you can’t really expect them to read the ebook from cover to cover.

2. Sell your ebook rights to your buyers. When it comes to your ebooks, you don?t have to limit them to your direct customers. It can even be viral if you can allow your buyers to resell them to their own targeted customers. Moreover, it will also increase the traffic going into your website, if you have embedded links into your ebooks.

3. You can carry advertisements in your ebook. Do you have some free space in your ebook? Why don’t you sell them to different advertisers? This is also one of the best ways on how you can practically earn more money through your ebooks. However, don’t wait for your ebook to be near completion before you can actually look for advertisers. Even in your planning stage, you can already approach some of them. Nevertheless, because there are a number of them who may not be too keen on having their ads on your ebook before it’s finished, you can talk to your webmaster-friends. Surely, they’ll be glad to put up some of their banners and text ads in your ebooks.

4. Sell your licenses. You can actually sell the license of your content to companies and markets that may be related to your chosen niche. A good catch, though, is to provide a license fee for your ebook. This way, they can make use of the data and information in your ebook to further their growth while you continuously earn from their usage of your material. You see, there’s definitely money in ebooks. What’s more, you don’t have to settle for long pages. What’s basically essential is you can express your thoughts properly and concisely.

Use These Tips For A Dynamic Internet Marketing Campaign

If you knew a secret that would make your Internet business an overnight success, would you share it?

One of the real secrets of successful Internet marketing is sharing your knowledge with others. This establishes you as an expert in your field, and contrary to belief, does not take away from your sales. To effectively market anything on the Internet, show your potential customers exactly what value your product offers them.

Don’t assume that your product’s value is obvious or self-explanatory. People don’t usually have any reason to put a lot of thought or effort into making themselves interested in your product — it’s your job to show them why they should be interested.

Be specific and believable and present the benefits of your product to people right up front to catch their attention. Write and send a professional, original press release about your website to journalists that work for online magazines or newspapers. If you send a journalist an interesting press release, you increase the chances of it being published. Once a press release is published, you should get a lot of new, potential customers visiting your website.

Internet marketing does not start with just a nice-looking website. Too many people set up a new site, then wonder why they get no traffic. Internet marketing starts with your identification of your target niche, and exactly what product you are selling to them. Focus on making the meat of your site explain how your product solves your visitors’ problems and provides them with many benefits. When advertising a product, don’t be shy about mentioning its flaws. If you try and make your product seem perfect and people buy it and find major flaws, they won’t be too happy with you. But if you admit things your product isn’t great for up front, they’re more likely to appreciate your honesty.

Provide a free download, free quote, or other free product. A free download or free quote builds credibility for your business by showing the customer that your business is knowledgeable in the field. The customer will feel like they got something for free, and that feeling will build goodwill towards your business.

Out there in the real world, networking with other businesses is how start-ups increase their profile and customer base. Use these same principles with Internet marketing. You need to network effectively in order to increase your overall profile. An increase in profile equals an increase in profits, so network frequently.

One way to help get traffic to your site is to create a mirror site or sites that are similar to your niche. Use these niche sites to brand your product and send traffic to your primary site. Make sure the quality is good on these niche sites so you can get that good targeted traffic. As you can see, a little effort can go a long way when it comes to Internet marketing tactics. One of the keys is consistency; keep up your efforts on a consistent schedule over time and you are sure to see results improve and continue to ramp up over the long run.

Do you have what it takes to be a successful online marketer? Read this and see!

By Sandi Hunter

 

To be a successful online marketer, liken yourself to being a dog chewing on a bone. That means gnarling away hungrily to post and promote every day – or at least as often as you can. You can’t expect to make sales if you don’t constantly gnaw on that bone called promotion. We teach you all about promotion in George Kosch’s online and LIVE weekly bootcamp training sessions. Promotion, and the need for constant promotion is the one thing that many new marketers take along time to fully grasp. Many underestimate how much promotion you must do to see results and give up far too soon.

Grow a thick-skin.
