Creating content from the ground up.

When you begin to do the research one of the most important things to consider is keyword use and the style of the content.

Developing content your way or the high way approach…

Creating content is all about developing quality and value.

Have you ever done any cooking, if you have you know its not easy work, if you have not, chances are you have watched someone do that cooking, now professionals make it look easy but mostly that is because they are professionals, they have done it hundreds and in some cases thousands of times.

Just like you would bake a cake there is the easy way and the hard way.

The hard way, takes longer, and you have to measure out all your ingredients, out step by step,
it takes work but in the long run, you will end up with a great tasting cake.

Skip a few steps and you could end up with a flop, it is the same way with generating traffic.

There are literally hundreds of different method of generating content by writing.

Writing, blogging, posting, there are a lot of methods of creating content online today in
fact, you can do a search for PLR material and obtain millions of text based articles.

Have you noticed that some people seem to be able to create content quickly and easily, in fact it almost seems like they can just effortlessly, create content with such little effort.

The truth is that you can do the same thing, it just requires practice.

You can create content, in fact anyone can create content, however creating great content may take practice, even the best authors, have people that edit the work they produce and since most of the writing public are not Stephen king, you cannot expect to be able to hire your own editor, or in Stevens case, allegedly fire your editor, more than once.

Writing is a process, and often that process can get interrupted, the phone rings, or the washer goes off and you have to do some work or someone rings the door bell.

These distractions are a part of life yet for the most part a professional writer does not have to deal with these issues, but as a part time writer, you do.

So, how do you as a part time writer, figure out how to be productive without having an editor and a publisher looking out for you.

Simple you have to wear a different hat, and for most people that is not as easy as it might sound.

Lets take a few minutes to think about hats…

A hat is a thing, but in this case it represents a frame of mind a place where when you enter into it you have to think differently about what you are doing when your writing, you have to wear the writers hat, which means often that you may not be considering how everything is spelled, or how the work your doing is put together, (of course if your a great writer then you do) but that is something that we learn as we go, wearing the master writers hat, is reserved for those that have been doing it for so long that they can literally put it on any time they wish.

For most of us perhaps even the rest of us, that hat changing business can be easier said than done.

So, lets talk about the steps to successfully writing and publishing, while having to put on or prepare to think differently about what your doing, for instance, the editors hat, which is probably the hardest hat to fit into to.

The editors hat.

To put on the editors hat you have to think differently, in fact you have to become a great speller and a grammar expert, a critic and you have to take the long view about what your doing, in other words, you have to look at the entire work.

That may be hard to do indeed some people find it is the hardest thing to do, because it means that you have to criticize your own work, this is usually a hard thing for most people to do, because lets face it we are human and we are proud of what we do.

However, the editor needs to put all that aside and think about the over all writing work, the editor needs to put aside that part of the writers, job and seek to analyze the entire work, read the work and see if everything is fitting together.

You have to ask does it flow, or is it choppy, by choppy we mean does it move from one topic to another, or does it jerk about from one thought to another with out making a connection.

These are all things that an editor, has to do in order to analyze the work before them, and in your case it is your own work, so that makes it harder to do, but you have to do it, so press onward, once you have your editors hat firmly on and you begin to look at the work you may see things that need to be done differently.

That is when you know your ready to edit, make a change here make a change there.

Add a little here subtract a little there and work to make it better to make it read smoothly, from topic to topic from sentence to sentence.

Yes, it is easier to say it than it is to actually do it but it takes practice, and the more you wear that editors hat the easier it is to put that hat on the next time your get ready to edit your work.

 So what is blogging anyway, is it like snow boarding…

So you want to blog and blog some more…

Sure that’s cool, blogging really is all about telling a story, about life, love, the great mysteries of the universe and more….

What is a blog and how can you make it work for your business?

There are a lot of different things that go into a good blog and design is just one aspect of many.

A blog is basically an online journal where you can digitally put down your thoughts, ideas, opinions and just about anything that you want people to read, however you should keep in mind that never write anything you dont want you mother or close family members to read…

Blogs come in different styles, formats, and settings, depending on the preference of the user. Many blogging sites, offer built in features such as hyperlink, straight texts, pictures etc. Some blogging sites, even allow you to put video and mp3′s on your blogs.

Instead of writing text, some blogger’s choose to make their blogs more audio friendly, by using audio.

This is called audio blogging or pod casting.

Most blogs have these features:

title- which allows you to label your post
body- this is the content of your post
trackback- other sites can be linked back to your blog
permanent link- every article that you write has a URL
comments- this allow readers to post comments on your blog.

One of the advantages of blogging, is that it is made of only a few templates. Unlike, other websites that is made up of numerous individual pages. This make it easier for blog users to create new pages, because it already has a fix setting that include: slots for title, body of the post, category, etc.

This is especially useful for first time users, since they can start blogging right away. They can chose from a number of templates that blogging websites provide.

Anyone who wants to start a blog can do so by becoming a member of a blogging website of their choice.

Once they’ve become members, they automatically become a part of that particular blogging community.

They can browse through other bloggers pages, and link them back to their own blogs. They can also make comments on other members’ blogs.

Blogging is not just limited to personal usage. There are a lot of blogs that follow a theme such as: sports, politics, philosophy, social commentary, etc. These blogs espouse on their specific themes. This way blogging becomes a medium in which people can share their knowledge and opinions about a variety of themes and topics.

Some bloggers even use their blogs as a means to advertise. Some authors advertise their books on their blogs. While other bloggers, use their blogs to shed light to currents issues, events, news and catastrophes.

Nowadays in education, blogs also play an important part. Professors use blogging to document the lessons that they have discussed and taught. This way, students who who have missed classes, can easily catch up with their assignments.

A lot of entrepreneurs benefit from blogging by promoting their businesses on their blogs, with millions and millions of people logging onto the net everyday, blogging has become a lucrative move. Some bloggers who run online businesses promote their merchandise online. While others profit through advertisement.

But by far, the most popular blog type is the one that takes the form of a personal journal. This is the kind that is usually used by first time bloggers. Individuals who want to document the daily struggle of their everyday lives, poems, rants, opinions, find that blogging offers them a medium in which to express themselves.

Bloggers usually communicate within themselves. This is one of the appeals of blogging. It creates a community of people sharing their ideas, thoughts, and comments with each other.

Blogs varying in topics, themes, and set-ups, can be found in blog directories. First time users who want to get an idea of what the blogging world is all about can browse through a number of blogs using these directories. This way they’d get an idea of what these blogging communities are like.

Blogging is popular all over the world. Blog is short for the term weblog. There are no rules when it comes to blogging. Bloggers have the freedom to express themselves how ever way they want, and the best thing about blogging, is that most blogging sites are free.

There are numerous blogging websites to choose from in the net. This give first time users the option of joining a blogging community that appeals to their interests.

Just search any blogging directory and you can get a listing of a lot of blogging sites that are available on the net.

It is realy easy to search a blogging directory, because it is organized according to category.

So in this way you would get exactly what you need.

Blogging is really for everyone.

It is fun, simple and easy.

However, if you want to get serious then you need to get yourself a webhost, a domain name, so you can have your own website, why make someone elses website popular when you can make your own website popular.

 

Web Design Mistakes

 What do you think about designing websites.

Sometimes simple is better…

Do you think that a poorly functional website design can kill your business?

The truth may be Yes Yes it can

bad designs, equals money lost…

It means that you may end up with an ugly website, and even worse, it might not attract any traffic at all, because believe it or not, I have seen some truly ugly websites that actually worked well to attract traffic, but There are plenty of mistakes in the world of web design. Let’s have a look at what some of the top design mistakes that people make every day.

This is the number one biggest mistake that so many people make, it will kill you with the search engines.

1. Too Much Advertising
When you’re trying to make money from your website, it’s all too easy to overwhelm your site with ads. Put yourself in your user’s place and take a good hard look at your site and ask yourself if the ads feel intrusive.

Does the site look like an information source or does it feel more like a page-holder for the ads?

These days, if you advertise your website takes two steps backward.

2. Plugin usage.
You have to keep plugin useage to a maximum of 1 type per page. If you’ve got Flash, then you can’t have a media player, or if you’re using Java, then no Flash. It’s not as bad to use the same plugin twice, however.

So what happens if you over use plug ins, again your rating goes down..

3. Flash in websites.
Please, don’t use a Flash intro on your website. They have been so overused that they’re becoming universally mocked.

4. Unclear Layout and Navigation.
Many websites, especially business sites, suffer from some kind of disease where the very simplest task takes 10 steps. If users are asking you how to do things on your site, then you need to improve your layout and navigation. If there are certain tasks people want to do frequently, put them on the front page.

5. External links, too many…
There are 2 kinds of links: internal (to other parts of your website) and external (to other websites). For the benefit of your users, it’s best if you mark external links, either by making them a different color or using some kind of a symbol (a box with an arrow is the usual one). It’s also good to make the external links open in new windows, so people aren’t leaving your site altogether when they click them.

6. Linking errors.
Some web pages are designed to show links only when people put their mouse over them. While this might make the design look nicer, it is not very user friendly. Instead, use a clearly contrasting color for links, and preferably underline them. This makes them more visible to the user, thus more user friendly.

7.  Email Links.
Always clearly mark a link that will send email (a mailto link) with the word ‘email’. If you turn clicking a name into send email, you’ll annoy users who expected to find out more about the person.

8. Broken Links.
You should check your links regularly to make sure that they all still work. There’s nothing worse than finding a site that looks useful, only to find that it hasn’t been updated in years, so most of the links don’t work. While a website does mostly run itself after a while, that doesn’t mean that you should neglect essential maintenance.

9. Strange Fonts.
Stick to the most common web fonts: that’s pretty much just Arial, Georgia, Tahoma and Verdana. If you use more obscure fonts, then most users won’t have them — and those that do will find your text hard to read. The only place for non-standard fonts is in your logo or headings, and then only if they are displayed as an image.

10. Badly-sized Text.
It’s important to keep your text around the standard size. Making text too big or too small makes it hard to read and annoying for many users. The best thing you can do is use relative text sizing (not pixels) that allows the browser to respect the user’s preferred text size. You should also consider offering buttons on your site to decrease or increase the font size.

Editing and posting, what it means and how you can do it right the second, third or fourth times?

Advertising how do you communicate?

Corporations spend millions of dollars every year simply because they do not communicate effectively with their customers.

While it may seem simple to us apparently the corporate mind is not currently able to comprehend the fact that taking the time to learn how to communicate to the customer base would in fact deliver the results they demand but fail to achieve.

Imagine for a moment if you could read the minds of your target audience.

Getting inside the head of your target audience is all about learning how to communicate.

Communication is difficult but not impossible.

Did you know that communication is a multi billion dollar business and that most websites have it totally wrong?

Communication problems account for millions of dollars in lost productivity in most corporations world wide.

When you think about it, you have to wonder, how can professionals not be able to effectively communicate all the time?

Communication is really all about what you want to say and how you want to say it.

Advertising is communication, knowing how to communicate with your target consumer is the only way you will ever make money online.

There are many different types of communication, advertising is a method of communicating with your target customer, the people you want to reach out to.  Take a look to the right side of this web page, you will notice a small space that is dedicated to adzly.com which is a really great place to get exposure and some really good advertising.

Advertising is something that has been around for centuries, in fact in ancient Egypt, there are indications of advertising in many of the scrolls, that exist even today, imagine that an advisement, over 3000 years old, there are some things that we can learn from old advertisements, perhaps not Egyptian, advertising, but you can learn a lot from watching commercials on TV.

Effective communication, should do one of two things, persuade, the viewer to buy a product or take an action.

Taking action is one of the most imp0rtant things you can do when advertising.
Consumption, is the desired end result of most advertisers, repeat business is just one method of gaining that added consumption.

In the use of video there are distinct ways that you can advertise, using verbal, and non verbal communication, this can be done using images, as well as video, but it is particularly

Over the last few years, with the advent of video editing tools, there have been many methods used to influence how you view advertising.  Have you ever eaten a meal then sat in front of the TV, then after watching a commercial you think your hungry, even though you just got through eating.  You may be the victim of subliminal advertising, which some years ago was illegal in some states and in certain theaters, the use of subliminal advertising was considered as a form of mind control.

In some ways, subliminal advertising could in fact be somewhat like mind control, with the exception that usually a person will not do anything they would not be normally willing to do.

However, if your not careful you might be viewing subliminal and not even know its happening.

This is because subliminal advertising is not aimed at the conscious mind at all.

It is actually aimed at the subconscious mind.

Discovering what  the unconscious mind of the consumer thinks has been a topic of several very popular books very recently.

It has a lot of power and value in the advertising world, as an example, of this everything from the colors used in product branding to the shape and feel of the product are taken in consideration.

Social bonding has become a key word that holds some very interesting conceptions for the consumer and the advertiser alike.

The act of bonding with a product is something that is not new, in fact the older black and white commercials of the 1940s used some surprisingly effective advertising methods that are only now being fully researched.

posting and bloging how to get it done faster

Do you find it hard to post and blog?

How do you keep up with the demand for content?

Why is it so important?

There are literally millions and millions of blogs out there, twenty or thirty for every person on the face of the planet.

One of the most asked questions we hear from people who want to break into blogging and overcome the learning curve is how do I get traffic to my blog?

The problem is that they do not realize that the question is the problem.

Now, how do you know when your asking the wrong questions?

When the answer is too complicated and too difficult to understand.

So often people fail to understand why they need to have more than a webpage on someone elses website.

If you are business oriented then you know a little about what this is all about.

If you were going to open a business and went to the bank to get a loan to get started, and you asked the loan officer how to run your business do you think they would give you a loan?

The answer to that question is no no no.

Talk about having a party of no, this is what happens every single time you go to a bank and ask for money.

So what do you want to do and how do you want to do it?

Traffic how to get more traffic

SEO plugins for your wordpress websites.

How can you develop more traffic using a plugin?

What you should be thinking about when you plan your website.

What is the same thing about every offer you have ever seen before?

I mean every time its the same, but the Great and Mighty Gurus do not seem to even understand or do they?

It is dependent on your getting traffic to your website, now ask yourself this how many of these big name gurus have bothered to tell you this?

When thinking about all the things that go into a website,

what is the most important thing?

  • Is it the the design of the website?
  • What about the host where you have your website hosted?
  • Could it be the navigation of the website?

How to create better content using a method of publishing.

The truth is that it is none of those things and while those items are important to a pleasing website.

The truth is that those things make no difference at all.

The truth is if you do not have Traffic, then none of those things matter.

Traffic is the life blood of a website, yet so very often, that aspect of online training courses is “left out”

Forgotten?  No, not at all they know it, these so called, often self professed Gurus, forget to tell you that it is always about the traffic, even the traffic gurus, forget to pass on the real truth about generating traffic.

It takes money, did you think that these gurus, generate lists of thousands of buyers, without spending money?

That is the biggest, Guru Lie, that is told on a Daily basis, they tell you about how much money you can make, they tell you about how great the product is, but they just fail to tell you the one thing that makes it all happen.

That is people, simple, right, so why do they leave it out?

The simple truth is that most people cannot afford to buy traffic at the rate that the Gurus do.

You do not have the clout to make the big guru deals like they can so they don’t teach it.

The simple truth about Online marketing these days is that most of these so called Gurus are just Snake Oil salesmen.

They are Dream Merchants.

People that sell the dream over and over again, with few success stories, and even fewer actual real life financial success stories to show for each of their big guru product launches, otherwise they would show them off, even publishers clearing house gets a picture with the person holding a giant check, when was the last time you saw a Guru do that?

Never, because they sell dreams not reality.

The reality is that without traffic, real qualified, traffic, you know the type where a visitor comes and visits your website, just like they would if they came to your door as a friend and knocked on the door.

You might be thinking that this guy does not like Gurus, well that would be a yes, mostly because I have been around for a while now, “this taint my first rodeo”, yes, I have been taken advantage of probably just like you have, approaching the gates of Gold, with a smile just knowing that you will soon be successful, because you wanted to believe in the dream, you wanted to find the place where all the dreams come true.

That place does exist, but it is not easy to find the path to it.

The same way that traffic is important, the website is also important if you have a dull lifeless design, you may get some traffic but eventually they will tire of the same old same old, and stop coming, and then your dream will die a slow and painful death.

Now before you leave, I want you to get one thing, and since you are still reading this then you have invested some time that is good, because that means that you have been through the Guru Gauntlet, and survived, you are beginning to see through all the Guru lies, sadly it is very difficult for most people to get to this place because they want to believe the guru promises, so badly that they fail to see what is right in front of their faces.

The very real fact that this business requires work.

Yes, I said it the W word, work, work work, there I said it three times now, it requires work, perhaps even perspiration.  If you mouth is hanging open right now close it, before a fly gets in there, (just kidding) but you know what I mean here, the idea that you have to work is a foreign one for most people.

What?  You mean that I have to work?

The money will not just appear in my bank account as if by magic, while I sleep?

Well, ask yourself this, how many Guru products have you purchased?

…. Think of the theme song of Jeopardy playing in the background….

Now I want you to think about how many of those promises you have seen broken….

Every single one, why, because they show you one thing but fail to provide the real deal.

You can sell a dream no problem but in order to make that dream into a reality you have to really work.

Here is another thing, you may have to work really hard to make that dream pay off.

Here is the central truth here, unless you are prepared to work you may as well just give up.

Yes, save your money, because you can do better saving your money in the bank than depending on a Guru product promise, because it is snake oil, it is thin air, it is false promises.

Traffic is what makes it all possible, and yes you do have to have a nice website, and a good host, and a good product, but to make it all work, you need traffic, without traffic none of it works and it never will.

Have a look around, take a look at the videos, see what you can see because this is where the real deal is at, and it is not easy, to get, but it can be found and you can succeed, you may not and you should not expect to get rich over night, but it can happen, if you are prepared to put the sweat and blood, of work into what you do.

Just remember that the next time you see a Guru, offering Riches and Wealth and that sports car in the drive way of that fancy house, just remember that most of the time they live in their mothers basement…

Reality is often not the place you hope to wake up in but it is the only place that is real.

Just remember traffic is the one thing you cannot do without.

Getting your traffic moving in the right direction takes time and effort, you can do it.
