Keyword stuffing and sales optimized business pages do not work anymore. Google has become clever; hence, ever since the beginning of 2011, the continued Panda updates have caused many established online business owners to lose their SERP positions and thus, their businesses have suffered a lot.

What Google considers as most valuable these days are the quality of links – what kind of blogs and websites link to your site? Moreover, it also checks the traffic inflow and the traffic sources. Getting your website ranked higher in search engine is a different ballgame altogether and you can make the most out of it by using the concept of “Link Wheel”.

What is a Link Wheel?

Link Wheels are actually “feeder sites”, which are hosted on remote servers. These feeder sites should be authority sites where the internet marketer or the small business owner can develop content and get valuable link juice to the main website. Simply put, a link wheel, if done the right way, helps to improve SERP results.

Through this way, the business domain will not only rank higher but also get permanent backlinks that will keep pumping traffic to the main site.

How to Create a Link Wheel?

A link wheel consists of the main site at the center, followed by endless feeder sites, interconnected with each other, on the outside, but all the feeder sites should be connected with the main site. See the figure below:

A link wheel is a necessity for all online money making websites. It gives you traction and scalability.

Create and Promote Link Wheel

In the figure above, the main money making website is placed in the center while the “arrowed” sites are the feeder sites.

Top 5 Link Wheel Feeder Sites

1) WordPress

A free blogging platform since 2003, WordPress allows you to register and host websites for free. You can monetize the blogs and SEO the web pages.

2) Blogger

A free website creation tool from Google and used by millions of internet marketers to promote affiliate products.

3) HubPages

You can create interesting “hubs” that are reviewed by peers. You can add links, videos and images. A single content page can give you endless traffic if the page is very informative and gets high SERP placement.

4) Squidoo

This falls in the list of Top 500 popular websites in the world. You get to create “lenses” and these lenses are so effectively optimized that they sometimes come on the top of search engine results.

5) Ezine Articles

This is another authority Google site where thousands of people sign up daily and submit an equal number of informative articles. Ezine is really very popular with internet marketers even after Google devalued the importance of article directories to a great extent. You get to create high keyword-centric content that points to your main website.

Apart from the top 5 feeder sites, there are others as well but make sure whatever feeder site you choose should have more than PR 7 and thus, should be an established authority site on Google.

Link Wheel Connectivity

Note that when you are creating content on feeder sites, it should be interconnected with other feeder sites and of course, the main money making website too. For instance, if I have to create feeder content for SEHabitat, I will link the SEHabitat homepage as well as other keywords from articles I have previously created, on WordPress, Blogger and HubPages. This way I get to expand the source of web traffic and popularize the content.

How to Promote Link Wheel?

You promote link wheel the same way you promote the main money making website. Start with social networking tools like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. You can use JustRetweet to automate tweets or use HootSuite social media management platform to connect a host of social media accounts and schedule updates.

Every time you add fresh content on the main website and the feeder websites, update the social networking pages.

Create separate personal and professional social networking accounts, especially when you are running a small business online or a professional service providing business.

The Result

If you follow the above steps to its completion, it is guaranteed that your main website will begin to receive good traffic within a short span of time.

Creating a link wheel is not easy. Do not publish the same content everywhere. Invest in content development and management of link wheel sites.

Are you ready for the challenge?

create great content for your blogHow hard is it to create great content for your blog?

As a blogger, your main job is to produce content that readers can get something from. Great content is exactly what it is.

It’s something that provides value, is engaging, and can stand the test of time. It needs to be relevant even months or years from the time of creation.

The problem is many struggle with producing something that’s remotely close to being awesome. It’s not something you can do in just a few minutes. Even those who have been writing for quite some time can’t churn out great content every single time.

Does that mean it’s not possible?

It is. It just takes more work.

And if you’re willing to put in the effort, you might be surprised at how easy it is to produce a blog post that your readers will adore.

How is it done?

Let me share some tips that I’ve learned from years of blogging and the lessons I’ve learned from expert bloggers I follow.

Write about something that is close to your heart

Passion is a strong motivator in anything. In blogging, passion must always be number one. You can’t write something that’ll resonate with others if it didn’t spring from your passion.

Henri of WakeUpCloud is one of the first bloggers I’ve subscribed to because he talks about something that all bloggers need to learn: how to follow passion.

I’ve since realized that writing about things I’m incredibly passionate about are often the ones that are easy to finish and those that yield positive results.

You can’t go wrong by following your heart. When faced with a difficult topic, try to find ways to connect it with something you’re interested in. It’ll get easier, believe me.

Don’t stop researching until you have everything you need

Most of the time, bloggers find it difficult to publish something they feel will be a hit to their readers because they know it doesn’t have a lot of meat. That’s because they weren’t able to do enough research.

This is also the reason for experiencing writer’s block, which I don’t really believe in.

Before you start writing, make sure you’ve spent enough time digging information about the topic.

Don’t just read articles on Wikipedia, About.com, and the usual sites. Dig deeper. There are websites that offer more in-depth information, statistics, and accurate data. Look for expert blogs, journals, and academic and government sites.

Make an outline

Once you know enough about your topic, get a piece of paper (or open a Word document) and outline your post. Organize your thoughts. This will make it easier to write.

Having an outline helps you stay on track and jump back in case you encounter some distractions. This will also make sure you cover everything about the topic. Having an outline will help you finish in no time.

Keep it simple

Simple works best. You have to keep everything simple–from word choice to sentence structure to figures of speech. Unless you are writing for a very specific audience, do your best to simplify your post so that everyone can understand.

Some would try to use heavy and complex terms to appear authoritative. But it does very little to make you look like an expert. Avoid this. You’ll just embarrass yourself.

When you write, ask yourself: “will a 5th grader understand this?”

If the answer is yes, then you’re on the right track.

Write as if you’re in a conversation with someone

Blog posts need to sound natural. Readers must feel that you’re talking to them in your post. That’s how you can establish a connection.

It’s important to have rapport with your readers because this will make it easier to drive the point. You will be able to influence their perspective when there’s a connection. Make your readers comfortable. That is one way to make them come back for more.

Always use the second person. The first person is okay too but don’t over do it. You don’t want your post to be all about you. Your priority should be your readers.

Don’t forget to let your personality shine.

Stay active

Always use the passive voice. Use only passive verbs. They give sentences more appeal, more umph.

Reference reliable data sources

One sign of a great post is having accurate data. You can bet that there are other posts on the web that are like yours. To stand out, you should make yours more credible and informative. That’s where research comes in. Your post must have statistics, figures, and other data that readers can reference.

This will also make you look professional. You’ll be looked at as a writer who does his job really well.

Offer as much tips, guides, and hacks as possible

Great content must provide value. That means offer lots of tips and other useful information. Readers enjoy learning stuff, so make sure that yours gives them something to look forward to.

Aside from giving tips and hacks, offer informational products like ebooks, cheat sheets, guides, white papers, etc.

The world of online gaming and poker is huge, especially if you are an affiliate marketer in this space. Some of the largest payouts for affiliates can be seen in the online gaming space. Back in the day when Google allowed gaming and casino ads to be displayed in the search results, some companies were payout upwards of $50 just PER CLICK! If that doesn’t give you an idea of how much money can be made in this space, than I don’t know what will.

Just like all other promotions in affiliate marketing, online gaming sites are looking for players and they pay a lot of money for each quality lead to their site. What many affiliate marketers will do is create wordpress driven sites to create their own content for full sites and landing pages.

Flytonic.com is a wordpress themes sites that focuses on gaming and poker related wordpress theme, though they can actually be used for any type of site you would like to create. In addition to their wide selection of gaming related themes, they also have affiliate themes as well, which are great for product review sites.

The story behind FlyTonic is quite simple. The site is made up of two partners, Thomas Calkins and Jonathan Wanchalk. Tom was into poker affiliate marketing and site/theme design. Jonathan was also into affiliate marketing and they combined both of their efforts to create the ultimate WordPress theme site based around online gaming.

Flytonic Gaming WordPress Themes

As mentioned, FlyTonic has more than just gaming themes to offer, but that is the area they specialize in. The good thing about WordPress themes is that they can be created for one purpose, but once they are customized by the site owner they can be used for pretty much anything. You can view all themes available here.

Flytonic Themes

Here’s a full size screenshot of what the Sportsbook Theme looks like.

Sportsbook Theme

For example, one of the other themes available through the site is the Affiliate & Review Theme, which would be used for anyone who wanted to make a review site that could promote Clickbank, Amazon or any individual affiliate programs.

Affiliate Review Theme

You can see two examples of sites using the Affiliate & Review theme below.

Flytonic Framework

Another benefit to the Flytonic WordPress themes is their customized framework that allows you to take full control over not only the look and feel of your site, but also the backened and affiliate content as well.

Each Flytonic WordPress theme comes with the built in features of storing your affiliate site data so you can control your links and content across all areas of you site in just one click, along with the ability to hide affiliate links. Easy setup for theme options and changing layouts. A built in SEO option and banner management system and also the ability to translate your site into any foreign language for non-US traffic.

Flytonic Framework

As you can see, FlyTonic has put in the time and effort to create a WordPress theme platform that not only works for affiliate marketers of all types, but also bloggers across the board as well.

Flytonic Theme Showcase

It’s always good to see the basic version of a WordPress theme, but seeing what other people are doing with the theme is what really counts. Once you start to see how other sites are customizing the look and feel of their themes, it will allow you to start to imagine what you can do as well.

Through the Flytonic theme showcase you can see how other sites are customizing the look and feel of their themes with their own twist.

Flytonic Showcase

The cost to buy any of the individuals Flytonic themes is $89, which includes multiple domain use and unlimited updates and support.

Flytonic also has an affiliate program that pays out a 25% commission on all referred sales.

Take a look at your smartphone. It’s so much more than just a phone. It’s also your mobile email device, your MP3 player, your digital camera, your stopwatch, your PDA and even your fitness tracker. Manufacturers have taken all of these separate devices and amalgamated them into a single, convenient handheld. Why can’t marketing on the Internet be the same way?

Well, with Wishpond, it can. Instead of going to a number of different service providers to get all the various online marketing tools that you need, you can effectively get just about all of them through Wishpond. Now that’s smart!

Simple Tools for Epic Marketing Campaigns

No matter what kind of online business that you run, marketing is always going to play an integral role in your success. And there can be potentially many different facets to your overall marketing plan. Wishpond aims to address just about all of them.

wishpond2

After signing up for an account (you can enjoy a 14-day free trial), you gain access to the main dashboard as shown here. There are effectively four different sections to the dashboard, each with a number of subsections with different tools.

In the context of your marketing campaigns, Wishpond provides easy-to-use online wizards for create landing pages, contests, coupons, forms and pop-ups. This includes support for A/B split testing, built right into the Wishpond interface, as well as support for contests across websites, social networks and even mobile. It’s really robust.

Complete A/B Landing Page Testing

Let’s run through one possible example of how you might choose to Wishpond. Creating a landing page is very easy with Wishpond, because you can choose from a large number of pre-designed templates, all of which can be easily customized via the WYSIWYG editor.

wishpond3

The templates are organized into different categories, like Ebook Download or B2B Lead Generation. Each of these can be previewed in lightbox form. Once you’ve selected your template, you can go in to customize it with your own text and images. It is completely a WYSIWYG editor, complete with a little toolbox for each element. You can bold text, change the alignment, insert a Google Map, change the font and more. You can design both your pre- and post-signup pages this way.

wishpond4

That’s just for one of your designs, however. What’s great is that you can click on a prominent button near the top to create an A/B split test. From here, you simply design your “B” landing page the same way you handled the first, saving it all and moving to the next step. The landing page can be placed on a number of different places, including a Wishpond subdomain, on your Facebook page, or embedded on your website. The “entry” method can be a simple e-mail address or, if you prefer, you can use “Like-to-see Fan-Gating” where the lead must first “like” your Facebook page before proceeding further.

There are additional options for creating retargeting ads, editing the page meta data, and exporting leads to list managers like Mailchimp, Aweber and GoToWebinar. Once you’ve inserted the appropriate code, your new landing page is live and ready to accept leads. Wishpond tracks all the traffic data for you.

Beyond the Landing Page

As mentioned, perhaps the greatest advantage that you get when you sign up for Wishpond is that you gain access to so many different tools for so many different aspects of your overall marketing campaign. The wizards for creating contests, coupons and so on are just as easy to follow as the one for creating a landing page.

For example, here’s what it looks like to create your own AdSense ad through Wishpond.

wishpond1

Again, rather than hopping around to different websites for different service providers, you can come to one convenient place to handle it all. In addition to Google ads, Wishpond can also handle your Facebook ads and retargeting ads, as well as the ability to advertise to your email list. And yes, Wishpond can do email automation campaigns too.

How Much Does Wishpond Cost?

Considering just how much you can do with Wishpond, the starting price of just $19/month (billed annually) for the Basic Plan sounds like a pretty great deal. That includes unlimited campaigns and online ads, as well as dedicated customer support. That’s with the 34% annual billing discount. If you choose to go month-to-month, the price jumps to $29/month.

Additional features become available at the higher price plans. If you want like-to-see fan-gating, that comes with the $37/month Plus Plan. With the $44/month Pro Plan, you unlock the leads database, more advanced options, and email marketing automation. And finally, the white label solution is $97/month. These are all on an annual billing basis.

Wishpond Affiliate

To recoup some of those costs, you may consider signing up for the affiliate program that offers a recurring 30% commission, monthly payments and a 60-day cookie. They provide you with all sorts of marketing collateral to aid in your efforts and you can easily use Wishpond to promote Wishpond. Funny how it all works out, don’t you think?

Creating and maintaining a blog is no easy task. It takes a lot of time, effort and creativity to make a blog successful and gain a regular audience.

From coming up with a catchy domain name to picking a great design to writing good content, it’s a lot of work and may take you months just to get everything up and running smoothly.

5 Blog Sabotaging Mistakes

All of your efforts may go to waste though, if you are inadvertently ruining your site with the following mistakes:

Blog Sabotaging Mistakes

  • Going out-of-topic

You need to have a niche on which to build the identity of your blog.

Are you into travel and adventure? Do you talk about food and cooking techniques? Or is technology more of your thing?

Whatever it is, pick a topic and stick with it. You would end up confusing your readers if you jump from one topic to another with no unifying theme to tie your posts together. A scatterbrained blog is no fun to read and you’ll only alienate your audience.

  • Ignoring Feedback

If you opened your comments section to readers, then you should check it out regularly, weed out any spammy posts, and respond whenever appropriate.

Engaging with your audience is an effective way to turn them into regular subscribers of your posts. They’d be more inclined to read your future entries and leave insightful comments, generating even more interest for your blog.

  • Inconsistent Posting

Establish a regular schedule for publishing your blog posts early on and keep at it. You will lose a good chunk of your audience if they don’t hear from you for a while so don’t let too much time pass in between posts.

Being consistent with your posts shows that you’re committed to your blog and you care enough about your readers to provide good content on a regular basis.

  • Publishing Low Quality Guest Content

Guest blogging has grown as an online marketing tool nowadays. Marketers often offer money just so they could publish a guest post on your blog. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this practice but you have to proceed with caution.

Make sure that the content fits with your theme, is well-written, and factually accurate. A bad guest post, although written by someone else, will still reflect negatively on you because it is on your blog.

  • Bad Web Hosting

An otherwise beautifully designed; well-written blog won’t be read by a soul if your web hosting provider fails you. Frequent downtimes and slow loading will decrease your site traffic and even hurt your search ranking.

Pick a good web host with reliable technical support and your blogging life would be so much easier. You should be able to focus on creating content for your site, not stressing over hosting problems.

These issues, while problematic, are well within your control and you can take concrete actions to change them, starting from right now. If you are serious about making your blog succeed, then it’s definitely worthwhile to spend some time to make sure things go right.

So you claim you’ve a traffic problem.

Maybe, but many get thousands of visitors and they’re leaving money on the table.

Others are building sustainable six figure business with just 1000 subscribers.

Many experts say that the only key to increase your income is by getting traffic. This is wrong.

You actually don’t need a lot of traffic to get the money you want.

What you need is an audience… an engaged audience that knows, likes and trusts you. You need to be the leader of a tribe they are proud to be part of.

I’ve showed you in the previous post the simple key you need to captivate your audience and engage with them. Go and check it here. In this post, I’ll show you the best way to increase the engagement of your audience. It’s the way that many pro bloggers are using to engage with their audience.

But first, don’t miss these 2 posts also:

The best way to increase the engagement of your audience is…

writing mind-captivating posts.

Really? yes, but wait.

I don’t mean that you write posts that just provides value for your readers. I mean you write mind-captivating posts.

This is the simple way that Jon Morrow, Sonia Simone, Brian Clark and many of the pro bloggers are using to build engaged audience that wait for every post they write.

But how?

How could you write mind-captivating posts.

The answer is really simple.

Yes, blogging is very simple, many people try to make it seems complex, don’t listen to them.

To write mind-captivating posts you need to…

Make your emotion loose while you write

This is the part that many bloggers fail to do.

You need your emotion to loose while you write.

You need to be inspired when you want to inspire people and make that emotion loose.

You need to  cry, yes, I mean it, when you want to make your audience cry. That’s what Jon Morrow did here in his post on copyblogger, On Dying, Mothers, and Fighting for Your Ideas.

Read it and you’ll feel the emotion. You’ll want to cry, if you read it attentively.

How to make your emotion loose?

As I said before, think about the emotion you want to evoke in your readers, whether it’s to make them inspired, make them cry and so on.

Recharge that emotion in yourself and make it loose in your writing.

Imagine that you attach the jumper cables in your audience’s hearts and rev your engine.

Make them return to life again and feel the emotion you want to evoke. You’ll be able to grab their attention and make them engaged audience for ever.

Last words

This is the secret that best players in the online marketing world have that make you more engaged to them.

Here is it.

Go and apply this strategy in your next post when you write it.

And see the difference. I’m sure you’ll notice a huge different.

Any great business idea or concept needs funding in order to be made into a reality. Ideas made practical require the best resources, the best technology, and the best mentorship because most startups are a gamble, and most of them fail. However, they fail not because of lack of trying, but because they are flawed in their execution and marketing strategy.

So in order to succeed, you need win over investors. In order to win over investors, you need to bring your solid A-game and be able to convince them of your vision. It’s not all fun and games and it requires a lot of tiresome and often repetitive processes.

It’s up to you to hook up those investors to your startup bandwagon. It’s up to you to go to the meetings and pour your heart, soul, and passion out in front of people who ultimately decide which businesses thrive and which of them languish.

Even though 90% of startups ultimately fizzle out, you must believe that yours will be the one to break into the remaining 10% and be able to convince investors of the same. With these three tips, you can go into your pitch knowing that you have what it takes to get funded and win over your investors.

 

Be Enthusiastic, Excited, & Clear

Sometimes, in our excitement, we lose sight of what it is that makes our ideas simple, elegant, and attrative in their scope.

So when starting your business, it’s best to keep in mind that you’re taking a monumental risk that you need to convince millions of people of the efficacy of your idea. The simpler you are, the easier it will be for people to understand what it is that you’re hoping to accomplish.

But, there’s no need to be boring and dull about it, either. Demonstrating passion for your craft can also convey the right feelings to investors about how serious you are about the idea and how invested you are in seeing it through to the end.

It’s all about exhibiting the right kind of confidence. Cockiness turns off investors unless you have a track record in the industry to back you up. Another pitfall about being arrogant is that it makes you unreceptive to other ideas that can potentially help you enhance your original idea in the first place.

So cheer for your idea, but not to the detriment of listening to others. And above all else, understand that clarity and focus are the keys to selling your idea to a boardroom of investors. You need to convince them that your idea is better than what currently exists in the market, and that’s how you can get their attention—and their paychecks.

Show Them Results

You know what works with investors? Showing them that your idea can and will result in a bigger bank balance for everyone involved.

This sort of positive, self-interest focused discussion can do more to latch an army of investors on to you than using old fashioned scare tactics.

Answer their questions, their concerns, study the competition, and play up your strengths. I do this a lot with my current marketing startup. These are all tried and tested negotiation tactics that you may want to acquaint yourself with.

 

Be Realistic About Funding

Take what you can get and make the most of it. If you’ve got a number investors lined up, then it might do you good to lay out a viable business model for all parties involved.

This can put investors at ease and with a better idea about where you will be in a couple of years. Investors are interested in putting their money into people and ideas that are both passionate and forward thinking. They know that if an entrepreneur is both driven by lofty goals, but has a grounded sense of self and business, they are likely to flourish. Thus, it’s vital to you and your company to expect to generate some interest, but to be realistic about your numbers. Don’t drive investors away with lofty, unrealistic valuations and absurd funding requests.

Winning over investors and their investments is no easy task. Nobody wants to just throw money out of the window, which is why it’s important to understand what investors are looking for and how you can woo them with you brand or business idea. The best way to do that is to demonstrate passion, prove to them that you’re in it till the end, be clear, and be realistic in your expectations. If you follow these three simple tips, there’s no doubt that you’ll get the funding you’re looking for, and maybe even a bit

Unlike the years when pro bloggers like John Chow and Darren Rowse came on the blogging scene, making money from blogging is comparatively easier now mainly due to:

  • a lot of exposure
  • timely guidance

Earning a decent $1000 within the first few months of blogging is not tough these days.

Still, there are a lot of newbie and intermediate bloggers out there who find it difficult to earn a substantial income from their blog/s.

Why?

Let’s explore.

Why Most Bloggers Don't Make Money Blogging

1) You have no Writing Skills

I don’t understand why bloggers tend to ignore this fact. You need to possess writing skills for creating a decent piece of blog.

True, no one is a born writer and second, you cannot afford to hire a writer when you are struggling to even pay the blog hosting fees, learning to be a better writer makes sense, doesn’t it?

All the technical details like PR, PA and DA does matter but just because your blog has PR 3 won’t make advertisers beeline with advertorials.

Where is the quality? Advertisers want quality. Think about it.

2) You are only depending on AdSense

Move over AdSense, right NOW!

If you are creating a blog just to earn money from AdSense, you’re making a big mistake. Don’t get fooled by those online AdSense reports. The bloggers who earn thousands of $$$ with AdSense probably have more than 50 blogs running AdSense.

…and did you honestly think you can achieve the same amount of success with just one blog? Really!

Don’t create blogs for AdSense. Even Google doesn’t want that.

Even if you want to make it the main earning model, start with at least 20 blogs at once. Do you have the manpower or money for this? No? Then don’t be a cry baby!

3) You are not a Marketing Ninja

Okay, not everyone has clever marketing skills. I don’t have but I still make a decent amount every month, so I must be doing something ‘right’.

What are you doing to market blog posts?

Just some Facebook and Twitter shares will give momentary traffic spike but they don’t work in the long haul.

Think – is your content worth marketing?

Be truthful and honest to yourself. If the answer is a resounding “NO”, then first learn to create marketing-worthy content and then reach out to advertisers.

Check out Joe Pulizzi’s Content Marketing Institute for awesome resources.

4) Your Blogging Niche is NOT Profitable

If the chosen niche doesn’t have any takers, who can you blame for not earning anything?

The first step towards making money from blogging is to choose a profitable niche. Blogging is a medium to connect with a particular segment of viewers. However, the topic of your blogging medium needs to be in demand as well.

For proper keyword research and to find profitable niches, I would recommend the LongTailPro Keyword research tool by Spencer Haws.

Niche matters a lot when you want to earn from affiliate marketing, which is definitely not easy. Most bloggers and marketers fail. For inspiration, you should not miss reading about Brad Campbell who is making a cool 6-figure a year in the affiliate marketing sphere.

5) You are not Networking

Business means networking. You cannot ever have a profitable business if you don’t know how to network with others.

Sign up on any of the popular social networking sites to start connecting with fellow bloggers. Facebook would be a good first option. You can join blogging groups, talk to experienced bloggers and learn from them.

  • Mix with the crowd.
  • Help others.
  • Become popular.

The idea is to make others recognize your blog. Not only will it send referral traffic, you will find other bloggers eager to advertise on your blog.

Endnote

Making money from blogging is not tough.

Start using that grey matter (brain!) evolution has given you.

So you’ve a blog and you want to get more money from it.

You know that the most profitable way to do this is by selling products.

But you also know that you need the trust of your audience.

You want them to trust you. To buy from you because they know that you’ll give them great value.

But how to make your audience trust you?

How to make them be sure that you’ll provide great value for them?

The answer is Engagement.

The Secret Weapon To Build A Blog That Builds Business is engagement, not traffic and all this stuff.

Sure, traffic is essential to get people to your blog. But you don’t need thousands of visitors to build a blog that builds business.

Check out Yaro’s post How Much Traffic Does Your Blog Need To Make $100,000 A Year, to know what I mean.

You’ll be astonished to know that you need 200 visitors a day only. Check it.

After you know that engagement is the secret to building your audience and not traffic, the question now is…

How to increase the Engagement of your audience (And make them trust you)

The answer is very simple.

According to Danny Iny, my mentor and engagement expert, the best model for conceptualizing engagement is by increasing the feeling of commitment through rewards over time.

Simply put, reward your audience for every action they take. Keep doing this and you’ll have an engaged audience.

But how to apply this concept?

It’s very simple.

Ask your readers to take action and reward them for doing so.

Here are examples to help you understand what I mean:

  • Ask them to subscribe to your blog and reward them with a simple ebook or a video.
  • Every time you email them, reward them for opening your email. Give them cookie content as Sonia loves to say. You could give them a simple tip and so on.
  • Ask them to reply to your emails with what they’re struggling with and reward them for spending their time by replying to them and helping them with their struggles.
  • Reward them for checking your post with great tips.
  • Reward them for reaching to the end of your post with a bonus to help them apply what’s included in your post and get results. It could be simple worksheet or actionable step by step guide. You don’t need to go mad on this.
  • Ask them to comment on your blog post and reply back rewarding them for their time.
  • and so on…

Did you get what I mean?

Ask them to take an action, even if it’ll help them, and reward them for doing so, because this will help you build your business at the end.

It’s very simple.

Actually, you do some of these without you know.

Return back and evaluate your strategy and try to include more actions for your readers to take and reward them for doing so.

You’ll be able at the end to get it and build the business you want.

Take action.

If you heard that someone was making six figures a month blogging, you would probably think they they were doing something illegal or were a huge business that sold high end services. In this case, it’s none of them… it’s just John Chow.

John Chow his now one of the world’s most well known and successful independent bloggers, and he’s raking in a comfortable $100,000 per month in earnings.

How did all of this happen?

In short, it took a lot of time, work and testing to figure out what John’s audience wanted and how to best deliver it to them. However… for John, not only does he make it look easy, he lives very open about it and shares his success story with others around him as well.

John Chow Blog

John started his blog back in 2005 and once he started talking about different ways to make money with a blog, one of his readers called him out and said “Why do you talk about making money with blogging, when you don’t make money with your own blog!?”… well, John agreed and that’s exactly what he did next.

Over the next several months John would create a monthly case study for his blog and see how much money he could make. A year later and he was doing $40,000 a month!

In the chart below you can see how John’s earnings quickly grew in size month over month.

johnincomegraph

The best part is… Google even threw his whole site out of the search engines and his revenue numbers still continues to climb month after month!

I don’t want to give away the whole story, but you can listen to John tell his whole story and how he’s created a sales funnel process that can be applied to nearly any business, web site or blog — all in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur podcast.

Just like any form of business, online business is not something that will be served to you in a silver platter. You have to work for it. You have to
follow some tried and tested steps so that you will end up successful.

As an online entrepreneur, these are 5 steps that you should follow in building an online business:

1.Identify your target market.

Many budding entrepreneur begin the product in mind then look for a market who will patronize their products. If you do this, expect that you will more likely fail in your endeavor. Why is this so? In most cases, online entrepreneurs design and create products that they are very much into but necessarily what a particular group of clients demand and want. What you should do now is design the product after identifying your market.

2. Think of how you can deliver your products or services to your customers.

There are some questions that should be answered before you can proceed further with your online business.

  • How do you get clients? What can you offer them?
  • How do you handle concerns and questions? Should it be through email or phone call?
  • How can customers reach you to place their orders?
  • How do you deliver the products or services they ordered?
  • How do you get information about your customers?

For all these questions, there is only one answer – automation. When almost everything is automated, everything will be easy for you and your customers.

3. Design and create a website.

Since you are trying to establish an online business, a website is a must. It is your customers’ portal to your business. This is the fastest way by which you can reach them. This is the best option for them to reach you. You do not have to hire a professional web designer and programmer. You can create a website by yourself. You can use WordPress. This is user friendly. Once you get the hang of it, you can already publish your own website.

4. Consult those have already established online business and have been successful.

Ask them how you still can improve your plans about your online enterprise. It is also a good idea to ask them how they were able to overcome setbacks that they experienced before. You may want to pattern your business plans with theirs but this is not really a must.

 5. Make the public know what you can offer to them.

Before you formally launch your products or services, you can start entering forums and post your website link. This is also your way of testing whether your website is working or not, or if there are still other things that you need to work on. Now, the challenge lies on how you can entice online forum attendees to visit your website. You can include promos, discounts and freebies to those who will visit your website and those who will leave their email addresses.

Always bear in mind that this is just the beginning. Doing all these steps is not a guarantee that you will succeed online. You have to continually seek to improve your online business.

  • Get high traffic to your blog. Guest blogging is the most important way of getting visitors to your blog. There are certain cases where a single guest post in a blog has earned over 500-1000 visitors a day. A high traffic means lot of money. Quality of traffic is more important than number of visitors that you get to your blog. There is a term called bounce rate which describes the percentage of visitors who visit a page of blog and bounce out rather than visiting all its pages. Guest blogging helps to improve bounce rates.

Do you have a blog or intending to open one soon? Well, if you do, or are in the verge of starting your own blog soon, there are things that you need to understand about this field for those who are yet to venture into this vast field of online content writing. It is fun and encouraging especially when you get to know that people are visiting your blog, learning from it, and you get to interact with them on the social media besides earning. It is commendable for those who inform their readers as they entertain themselves. What though are the challenges and benefits of guest posting?

No matter your field of profession, there are challenges that must be faced before you get used to that line of duty and guest posting is no exception. What to post might not be a big deal because when you decide to be a blogger then it is perceived that you could be having the content that is required to fill in the space that has been provided to you in the text box. The challenge therefore is: will your content attract traffic? This is the most important question that every blogger should always be ready to get its answer bearing in mind that the larger the traffic, the bigger the benefits to the blogger.

Speaking of challenges should not deter you from moving forward with your preferred and well planned schedule of owning a blog, but you must be aware of them.

The benefits of owning a blog are way too far no matter the magnitude of the challenges that you are likely to face.

A well-arranged blog, coupled with a thoroughly researched content, good alignment; provision of links and compatible pictures among other things, will compliment your blog presentation. All these are done in a bid to present a neat well-arranged work to your respective potential client the reader. When preparing your content, you should always remember your target audience and know what they expect from you.

Choosing a catchy blogging account, an attractive yet informative title, and a carefully researched post are among the tips that can help you prevail in this dynamic field in the digital platform family. Never under estimate your reader! The ideal benefits that you are likely to get from blogging entirely depend on the reader or consumer of the content posted on your blog. So be careful on what you post in your blog with regard to legal and ethical issues.

If you have been blogging for some time now, you will agree with me that indeed it is fun and fulfilling when you are received positively by your audience. Criticism is inevitable and should be taken positively no matter the way it was given, with the aim of improving your service delivery to your clients.

Whether you are practicing guest posting or you have been in the industry for many years now, you should always remember that by blogging, in one way or another, you become the informer to your reader. So whatever the content you post, look at it as if it was meant for you to read, listen or watch. Will you receive it? That depends on the quality of the content.

Blogging is the way to go.
