Hello guys

How is your marketing day? I haven't been able to do much because I am getting ready for a health seminar this evening. I'll be talking about 8 natural remedies that are freely available to all but that we take for granted.

Anyway, just wanted to say Hi and wish you a great weekend!

Hi Louis... lost contact with you when OEP was implemented. Glad to see your back. I promote one of your products (I know of only one, have more?) and have done well with it. Keep in touch.

Hi Lou47,
Need ur help man! I'm following the tutorial to create" page frame work" for my site and got stuck. After "pages" , "Add new" ; what should be the next thing to do to create the following pages: Home, About me, Blog, Contact and Privacy. I chose "weaver II" theme.

I will very much appreciate help.

Hi Buernor12

Happy to help!
1) Pages
2) Add new
3) Put the title
4) Put content
5) Publish


Do the same for Home, About me, Blog, Contact and Privacy.


Then go to:

1) Settings
2) Choose "Static Page"
3) Then choose "home" as front page
4) Choose "blog" as "Post page"

But you must remember to create the pages before going to this second part in setting.

Hope this helps and hope I am not too late! Sorry for the delay...wasn't online for a few days.

Lou47 Premium
Except for the "Blog" page when created don't put any content...only the title "Blog". After choosing your Settings------> writing-------->then choose "Blog" as your post page. Now every post you make will be posted in "blog" automatically.

Sorry I missed a step before.

5) Link farms definitely are not working! If I am wrong in this ...let me know your opinion.
6) Use the "bum marketing method" for your articles and posts. I sometimes get my post ranked int he first page the same day.
7) Take advantage of keywords with low searches such as 200-1000. These get ranked very easily and fast. If you can get many of these then it adds up.
8) Competitive keywords may take weeks to months.
9) Definitely...after getting some income...start using paid methods of income. It is faster and more effective. And even if you start with PPC it is still practice to make sure your articles, post and pages are SEO optimized.

If you want to really do well at the long run you really need to :

1) Stay away from blackhat seo techniques. They work great for a while but Google always tends to catchup and end up loosing all your efforts
2) Stay away from massive backlink services. They don't work any more. Mild backlinking on a weekly basis with articles and authority sites still works -not as good as before but still recommended.
3) Create good quality content. I am in the health field and I find it impossible to find knowledgeable people to write quality health articles. If you know of one please let me know....I usually end up writing my own thing which is unfortunately slow due to time.
4) Definitely don't put all your assets in google. Look for other methods of traffic.

etc etc etc

I usually do it myself using paint.net. Not the best but acceptable. You can also try:

1) Elance.com
2) 99designs.com
3) Minisitesgraphics.com
4) Fiverr.com
5) eCoverartist.com is what I have used. Not expensive and she is really good.

For the caricature use: dimpleart.com.

There is another site but I don't remember.

Well I hope this helps.

Hey Lou,
I appreciate the detailed input. do you have any place that you would recommend that creates headers, I have a general idea of what i want it to look like. I like the idea of using a caricature , i never thought of that before. I completely agree on making the site more interesting, right now there is no organization but I will get to where it needs to be(with time)
Thanks for taking the time to look at my site(or lack there of) and giving me some direction!

Busy moving. Definitely going to start "again" using ppc. SEO is ok but too much hard work and it takes time to see results. And with Googles constant changes...hmmm it is really not dependable.

I will continue article writting but depending more on ppc and other payed methods. Done carefully you can see results faster and test campaigns and know in a short time if they are worth promoting.

I have a website that is producing 1000 a month. But with the penguin went down to 400 a month. Still not so bad but drastic change. Was busy in work and had laid off IM for a while. But now I am back.

If you need any help...Let me know!

Haven't reached my goal yet...but pressing on!

Wish you well onlinewealth

Hi

Nice to meet and talk with you. Anything I could help let me know. Thanks for writing in my blog section. I believe if we can combine the conventional with the natural we can have more success in helping others and ourselves. Many times the natural is enough and sometimes a combo is needed.

Take care

Wow it's been a while...Yes I kind of fell off the bandwagon. I did develop a product and was able increase my income from 500 - 1000 dollars a month. Since the penguin update it has been keeping around 400 more or less.

Well what I mean is that I know this internet marketing works. Would appreciate words of encouragment and also I am will to help anyone in anyway I can.

Well hopw to keep up with this this time! I am really going to work with paid traffic. I really believe that is where you can be more successful if done carefully.


Hope to connect with many of you in the future!

Hey folks..I've been doing some reading...so I want to share something I've learned that you probably know already. But this is something related to quality score I didn't know. When you place your next campaign don't put the minimum bid that you are planning to spend on a specific keyword. Let's say you are planning to pay .05 cents per click. It is recommended that you post $1 or more per click for a few minutes and then reduce the price to what you are really plan to pay for click. The reasoning behind this is that if google sees that you are paying very little per click it's because you don't think that the keyword will not perform. So google gives you a low quality score. Quality score will increase if you start with a high bid and then reduce it. Haven't tried it once and it seemed to work...would like you input on this.

Lou47 Premium
You just have to test. An example is on of my campaigns. I was getting sales and clicks. Like 2 sales a day or so. But when I turned on the content It went up to 5-8 sales. But again it really depends on the product.

Something carson and kyle recommend in their book Beating Adwords is that you should set your budget to 8-10x what google recomends but then watch it so it doesn't go over your budget. That way google will keep showing your ad and you can find out fast if you your product really sells.

I've written a few articles at Squidoo and did my first Adwords campaign, but haven't made a sale yet. It's gonna take some time. I think the object is to get your ads and articles going VIRAL, then you'll make money. Have a good one, we'll talk again soon!
Reply
jeffrey73 Premium
Thanks man, that's some good info. to know! But are you referring to the Adwords campaign? Are you saying that the articles convert more traffic than the Google Ads themselves? This way, if there are few articles written in your niche you would have a better success rate using Adwords? That would make sense figuring that the front page listings probably get a higher CTR than a small ad on the side. Appreciate your help a lot bro! Thanks again. Unfortunately, I think there are too many articles written about Twitter, especially lately. Talk again soon!

jeffrey73 Premium
I had it on for about 2 days and didn't even know I was supposed to turn it off, until Carson told me to in a PM. LOL Regardless, it really didn't make much of a difference because I only received about 2 or 3 clicks anyway! I think I'll try it out in my next campaign, why do you have to watch it closely?
Reply
jeffrey73 Premium
Well, the product has a very high gravity rate. My daily budget is only $15.00/day. I searched Ezine Articles and there are TONS of articles using the keywords "Twitter Followers", this could either be a GOOD or BAD thing. I just noticed that my content network was turned "ON" and I had ten times as many impressions as my 1st campaign that was turned "OFF". Should I keep testing it with the CN turned "ON"? Could you take a look at the campaign and tell me what you think?
Reply
jeffrey73 Premium
When it was on, I had 52 impressions in the past 2 hours vs. 7 with the other campaign in 24 hrs. My only worry is, like you said, I may end up getting too many worthless clicks.
Reply
jeffrey73 Premium
5-8 sales a day? Wow! If I even got 1 sale in the next week I would be amazed! If you are making that many consistent sales each and every day you are either matching dollar for dollar with advertising, or you are quickly on your way to becoming a Guru and I'd like to know how you are doing it? What exactly do you promote?

Thanks Lou, you too. Hopefully I can help you out as well sometime. The training and support system here really is great! Maybe I should purchase the Adwords accredited course? Sounds like it's really good, that's not surprising though.

Hi Jeff. Thanks for your comment in my space. It's a pleasure to know you. Hope we can share some internet Marketing successes and failures in our road to financial freedom. I already have a good business in the health field but have too much debt and hoping to balance everything out with IM and hopefully much more. I get a lot of satisfaction doing my work but would like to be able to do it free of debt and stress. I believe that IM as shown in WA will give us that success we need to live stress and debt free. Hey , hope to hear more from you.
Take care!

Hey Jeff. Look just one rec for the campaigns. I know they say that when you are starting you shouldn't use the content network. But I recommend if you feel confident you should try it. Sometimes you get most of your purchases here. The best way to know if you should use the content network is by going to ezine articles and typing in your nich to see if there are many articles on your niche. If the answer is yes...then you should test the content network. If no then you should probably leave it alone. I'm getting most of my sales from the content network. Ask around in the forum and see what others think. An example is Travis's Make up ebook (get your ex back--according to him--it is working in the content network.
Reply
Lou47 Premium
Actually I meant the opposite. If there are many articles on ezine articles written the more the adwords campaign would work IF YOU US THE CONTENT NETWORK.
Reply
Lou47 Premium
I mean articles written in your niche. Then you can test turning on the content network and see if it works for you. but you must watch it carefully.
Reply
Lou47 Premium
Oh yes.. that's fine for your article marketing. But as a guideline for using content netork on adwords usually ezine article directory is a guide that helps you decide if you should use the content network or not. Well that' s my take that I learned from a afilliate marketing "guru". And it has worked for me sometimes.
Reply
Lou47 Premium
You have to watch it because one or two things could happen:
1. Or it brings on a ton of sales or
2. it brings on so much worthless clicks that will use up your money.
Thats why many recommend turning it off. But as mentioned before...some campaigns sell more in the content and others don't. So it's something you can test if your campaign isn't working and you know that there are alot of content written about your niche.
But if it's just bringing on worthless clicks--and you leave it on all night---you can wake up with a big bill from google depending on your daily budget.
Reply
Lou47 Premium
If I were you I would. I would. But sometimes google won't show you ads as much because you budget is low and it spreads it out for the day. So you won't have a lot of impressions.

Well My niche I don't want to reveal but what I have been telling you is what I have been doing.
I put as my budget 1000 daily!! haha. OF course don't worry I'm not spending that amount. I'm only spending 25-30 dollars a day. But Google keeps showing my ad because of the budget. Of course I have to watch and make sure I dont' go over my budget limit. At least that is one big tip I learned when I read Beating Adwords which is offered as part of the ppc accredited course offered here. That ebook is a blast.
