What Successful Websites Have That Yours Doesn’t

by , under Internet Marketing


Have you ever spent some time thinking about what successful websites have that your doesn’t? Sure you have! You wouldn’t be reading this article if you weren’t serious about growing your website.

Most people get so wrapped up in all the little tedious components of SEO and building backlinks that they completely forget about the one thing that truly makes a website successful. So what is that one thing? It’s connecting with your visitors of course!

Sometimes we have to slow down and realize that it really is all about the visitors. If you take a serious look at the largely successful websites or brick and mortar businesses for that matter, the one thing they are very good at doing is staying connected with their customers.

It all makes perfect sense if you really think about it. We spend so much time working on our sites that we actually forget to ask our visitors what they want. How can you run a business without knowing what your customers want. It’s pretty much impossible.

Big business makes use of surveys and polls to find out what their customers want or need. You can do the same thing online with services like Poll Daddy or Survey Monkey.

Maybe it will just involve writing a blog post that ask for  your visitor’s participation. It doesn’t really matter how you do it as long as you do it. I am guilty just like some of you of being too busy sometimes to actually get to know my visitors but this is a monumental mistake.

Remember…. people don’t like to be sold. They would rather make their own informed decision to purchase something they need or want. How can you offer what they need or want without asking them what those needs or wants are?

If you want to truly have a successful website then go now and get to know your visitors.

Best Wishes!

Where To Start Earning Money Online?

by , under Everything Else, Internet Marketing

It seems that everyday now I get an email from a reader or an acquaintance and sometimes friends and relatives as well. They all ask me the same question.  Where do I start earning money online and is there really money to be made?

I will try to answer those questions separately for everybody reading.

My advice is to start with whatever you think you can handle. Regardless if that means joining a survey company and doing one or two surveys a month and making an extra $20.00 to $50.00. Maybe just sign up for a multi level marketing (MLM) company and send and receive referrals strictly by email. If you really want to take a leap then set up a website or blog and start marketing your own product or affiliate products. This is the sincere beauty of the Internet. It really doesn’t matter. I tell everybody that throws me that question the same thing I’m getting ready to tell you. Do Something! The worst thing you can do is sit and talk about it. Anybody can do that. Just talking about it won’t make you a dime! Most of you already know this but if you want something in life you have to reach out and grab it. Chances are that it won’t come to you so you have to go get it. Start by doing it part time between your other activities…ie..work – family and social life. Get on the Internet and start reading and networking with other people in search of the same thing. You will find that while there are plenty of scammers out and about there are also plenty of good people who are willing to help you along because they’ve been there themselves and remember how it was and because they genuinely want to help others. Good people do still exist in this world! You just have to wade through some bad to find them.

As to whether or not money can be made. The answer is a resounding yes! Considering the fact that there are 1.6 billion Internet users in the world and almost 252 million in North America alone I would say your odds are pretty good. It’s not a question of can you earn money. It’s a question of will you reach out and grab it.  More and more people are earning money everyday online. It’s because they stumble across something that actually got their attention and they were willing to take a chance and sacrifice some of their time. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the Internet is unlike other businesses because in a sense it’s not. Most businesses require an investment on your part be it online or out in the streets. Some are small and some are large. It’s like anything else. It just depends on your interests and what you think may keep you interested and what you can afford. If you can’t afford much right now then go after the freebies and take it day by day. With bigger risk usually comes bigger rewards so if you can afford some money to invest then look into a few larger opportunities. There are so many out there!

My personal recommendation is start right away! Get involved with as many different ideas and opportunities as you possibly can but always do your research prior to jumping in. I have tried to list here on my website and blog the ideas and businesses that stood out to me. I will continue to find more of them for you but there are hundreds of thousands of others out there as well. I am personally a fan of multiple streams of income so I like to leverage my time and money in as many opportunities as possible. This way I always have money coming in from multiple places. That works for me but may not work for you. The main point is as I stated earlier…..Do Something! Don’t just sit there at your computer wishing that something would come along and make you rich. Earning money online is like any other business. If you want to succeed you have to work hard at it. It doesn’t happen overnight for 99.9% of us but I can tell you one thing for sure as somebody who does earn decent money online. If you put your mind to it, set some goals for yourself and start doing something right this minute you will be a whole lot closer than you were yesterday.
