Being Unique Is A Good Thing

In the world of internet marketing, everyone is faced with so much competition. There is competition everywhere. Everybody has a website, blog and a Facebook page and they are all going after the same thing: business. There is so much information out there that it is near impossible to pick one good thing out of many. How would you know which one is the right one? I guess the one that catches your eye. The one that was somehow different from all the rest.

When you have a product or service to promote, the first thing you want to ask yourself is would YOU get it yourself. There has to be hundreds of other websites promoting the same thing. Why is your product or service better than all the rest? Or should I ask why is your product DIFFERENT from all the rest? To be successful in life, you need to have people pay attention to you and the best way to accomplish this is to stand out from the crowd.

Everyone has already heard it all before. Everyone has already seen it before. You need to add something different and something new to the old. There is nothing really new. Just wrapped in new packaging. What you need is new packaging that's presentable as something new. Do something that nobody else is doing and people will take notice. You don't want to be the same as everyone else. You are unique and being unique is a good thing.

Confidence Is Everything

There is an old saying that if you either believe that you can or can't, you are absolutely right. I am not here to convince you that you can do it, as in achieve success. If you honestly believe that you can't succeed in life then most likely you won't succeed. You can have all the inspiration and motivation in the world but it all comes down to you and your beliefs.

Everyone that has made a success out of themselves all had one thing in common; they all had CONFIDENCE. They believed in themselves and they had no doubt in their mind that they were going to make it. Not only they said to themselves, I can do it, they also said I WILL DO IT! And they stopped at nothing to get to the top because they KNEW they were going to achieve their goal no matter how many setbacks, drawbacks and obstacles that were put in their way.

If you think highly of yourself, there's a big chance that other people will think highly of you too. I'm not suggesting for you to be conceited or arrogant. Arrogance is a huge turn off. People who are arrogant most likely lack confidence. They are just so full of themselves but can't come up with the goods. What I'm getting at is knowing yourself and your capabilities. Knowing that you have achieved goals in the past and that you can do it again. It's all about believing in yourself. If you don't believe in yourself then who is going to believe in you? Confidence can open a lot of doors and people will more than likely give a helping hand at whatever you are trying to accomplish. People are attracted to winners and not losers. Nobody wants to lose. If you have that winning attitude then surely you will win.

How To Make The Most Of Twitter

Twitter is now the second biggest social network in the world right behind Facebook. With over 200 million users and growing, you'd be a fool to not have a twitter account as part of your marketing plan. I'm going to share some valid information on how you can make the most out of Twitter and offer some tips and valuable advice to get people clicking on your website.

1. You should have only one link to your website on your profile and not tweet and retweet your links. If people want to know what you are about, they would click on your link based on your tweets.

2. Don't tweet promotional offers. You don't want to come across as some spammer. If you should then do it with limitations.

3. Promote your Facebook page. This is extremely important. Social media is viral media. The more networks you have that are connected, the better your chances are gaining a following. Facebook is pretty much the KING of social networks so every now and then you should tweet a link to your Facebook page and get people to like it.

4. Tweet about what's going on in the news but only if it's interesting. Soon as you tweet something, it's almost gone and buried within all the other tweets from other users. You have to stand out and one of the best ways of doing that is posting news. I usually visit Google News, find something interesting that's going on and I tweet it. If it involves celebrities then it's even better.

5. Tweet motivational quotes. Some people on Twitter make posts about nonsense than nobody cares about. This is another way for you to stand out by tweeting something that's motivational. We all need inspiration and someone reading a tweet that contains an inspiring quote will definitely get people to check out your profile.

6. When someone follows you, send them a message and thank them. If you want to follow them back then that's your choice. Avoid putting any links in your message and don't use any automated software. That will get your account suspended.

If you are on Twitter then I suggest for you to start implementing these techniques. If you are not on Twitter then what are you waiting for? It's free to sign up and it's free traffic to your website.

Just Do It!

I know that is Nike's well-known slogan but to honest I couldn't think of a better title. I have a habit of just rushing into things. I like to discover the unknown because that's where all the possibilities are. Procrastination is the number reason why most people fail at anything because they never start to begin with.

Procrastination is pretty much the fear of trying out new things. If you have already done it before then it wouldn't be much of a big deal. But if it's something totally new, most people would just say to themselves that they are going to do this and do that but never get around to it. We like to put things off for the next day but why put off for then when you can just do it now? The sooner you start a project, the sooner you know where it's going.

Don't wait until tomorrow, next week, next month or next year. Don't make silly New Years' resolutions. Whatever it is you want to start, start NOW! Don't worry about how you are going to do it. The "how" is already taken care off. Once you start doing, the "hows" generally fall into place. Of course everything is not going to turn out the way you would want. But if you don't do it now then how are you ever going to find out if it does?

Think of it this way. If you don't do it now, someone else may beat you to it. And you wouldn't like that very much. What if you had an idea that nobody else had and someone else came out with the same idea and you say "well that was MY IDEA!". Yes. Exactly. But you know what happened? You didn't ACT on that idea so the idea came from somebody else. It's ACTION that takes the cake. Many people like to talk about their ideas but never do anything with them. You must do something and you must do it NOW!

Internet Marketing Addiction

I have a confession to make. I am an addict. I am totally addicted to internet marketing. I just can't stop. Even if I wanted to stop, it will be extremely hard to kick the habit. Everybody has some sort of addiction. Some people are addicted to drugs, sex, cigarettes, alcohol, video games, shopping, food, whatever. I am addicted to my business. And it's not because I'm greedy. I have enough money. I just love what I do and I love it when other people love what I do. That's the main thing that keeps me hooked.

In order to be successful at anything, whatever you want to achieve in life, you must have a craving for it. A burning desire. That desire turns into action and action on a regular basis turns into a habit. Once you form the habit then you have an addiction. So everyday you need that "fix". My fix is pretty much posting on my blog, tweeting, and posting on Facebook. Most people tweet and post on Facebook a bunch of nonsense. I know I'm being a little harsh here but it's true. If you're going to be on Twitter and Facebook all day, everyday, you might as well make something of yourself and build some sort of brand.

Look at people like Oprah and Jay-Z. Those two names aren't just regular names. They are brands! And they didn't get where they're at now by doing nothing. Whatever they did to get to the top, it was their addiction that got them there.

Get Your Product Out There

There is always more than one way of doing something. The more ways to get your product or service out to the public, the more opportunities you have of success. Sure some ways may be more beneficial than others, but if you get a customer here and there from those other sources than why not keep on using them? When you are into internet marketing, you realize that it's not only the product that has to be enticing, you must have traffic. Without traffic, your product or service is pretty much non-existent.

When it comes down to it, it really doesn't matter what you are promoting. You can have the best tasting burger in the world but if nobody knows about it, it's useless. You must get it out there and when I say "out there" I mean using whatever means possible to make sure people actually see what you have to offer.

I'm addicted to internet marketing because of all the possibilities that come with it. I can spend all day not only using the sources that I already have but also discovering new ones. If I can find more free ways to promote my business the better. Remember the rock band KISS? They were more than just some rock band. They were a BRAND! They had put their logo on everything you can think of and became one of the biggest franchises in the whole world. In business you need that same mentality to have your prospects take your product more seriously and stay ahead of your competitors. My model is if it works, use it. Then find something else that works, then something else, then something else.

It's Better To Give Than To Recieve

We are living in a world where most people are waking up everyday figuring out how they are going to pay for this and pay for that and how they are going to make the money to pay for it. Money is an essential thing we all need to have to survive. But money is not the end-all, be-all. This way of thinking has caused millions of people to enter the rat race and they are still running and not getting anywhere.

Out of all the people that are chasing the dollar, how many people actually give away money? I love giving. In fact, giving money away assures my being that I have enough and I can give. Some people don't like to give money away to homeless beggars and say "well why won't he just get a job like the rest of us?" I'm a hard working individual and I'm no better than anybody. If someone asks me for spare change, I'll give them a buck or two. Why? Because I can! I'm not selfish and I'm not greedy. It's those types of people that end up broke at the end.

When you give, you get back a whole lot more. It's a law of the universe. Whatever you do to people, the same will happen to you. Besides, we all were in a position or circumstance where we needed some help. I make money online by giving away free stuff. My report is free and everything I post on this blog is free. There is a lot of valuable information here and it's all free. So next time if someone asks you for a dollar, reach in your wallet and just give it to them. Trust me. You'll feel a whole lot better.

How To Cope With Having A Bad Day

Let's face it. We all have days that are not so good. Some days are so good that you don't ever want them to end. And we know that when you are having a day that is just absolutely perfect, the next day is going to be just the opposite. It doesn't matter who you are, what you do for a living or how much money you make, you are going to have days that are full of annoyances and it seems that nothing is turning out right and going your way.

One thing you must do in these circumstances is try not to lose your cool. Even though it may feel like the best thing to do at the moment, consequences of your actions can be ugly. There is an old saying that life is 10% crap and 90% how you react to it. When you are running a business, it is always helpful to have some kind of positive outlet to let off steam. Going to the gym and working out can be a good idea. Or you can just go out for a long walk. Or you can go on YouTube and watch some comedy stand up like I do. But whatever you do, don't lose your cool and try to keep a positive mental attitude. Nobody is perfect but it doesn't hurt to try.

The Time Is Now

If there ever was a time to pursue a career in internet marketing, now would definitely be it. Every day more and more people are getting laid off their jobs or they are quitting or getting fired. I know. I've been there. I had every type of job you can possibly think of. Well, not EVERY type of job but you get my drift. Out of all the jobs that I had in my life I can honestly say that maybe one or two of them I was really happy with. The rest of them was just a job and it was just a paycheck that I received every week or two.

All over the world, the economy is getting a whole lot worse. Especially in the United States. There are barely any jobs and the ones that are available are the ones that require a special skill. If you are a construction worker, mover, landscaper, etc., you will never run out of work because everyone needs people like them. If you are lucky enough to get a regular job, you have no idea how long you will keep it. Plus you will be on pins and needles and walking on egg shells trying to keep that job as long as you can while at the same time wishing you had won the lottery. I mean EVERYONE wants to win the lottery. Even me. I admit it would be nice for me to win a multi-million jackpot. But I don't play the lottery and I don't gamble. I'd rather invest my money into my own business. At least I know that I'm getting a return.

Don't you wish you could get up out of bed whenever you feel like it? Don't you wish you had more time to spend with your loved ones? Don't you wish you had more money coming in your bank account? Automatically? Don't you wish you had more freedom in your life? If you said yes to all these questions, and I'm assuming you did, then go ahead and download your free report which is on the right side of this page. You have nothing to spend, nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Do Likes And Followers Really Matter?

Facebook and Twitter are now the largest social networks in the world. In fact, all the biggest brands and companies have a Facebook page and/or a Twitter account. Your product or service may not be as well-known as theirs but at least you have the privilege to make your product appear as it is.

When it comes to social media, the main thing that it comes down to is popularity. People judge your service based on how popular it is and the more likes and followers you have the more popular your product is.

Let me add on to say that likes and followers don't equal sales. But likes and followers can bring in sales. The popularity of your social networks gives the visitors a tendency to take your offer more seriously. Would you purchase a product on a Facebook page with only 100 likes or a Twitter page with only a couple of hundred followers? Of course not! But with a few thousand your prospect would check out what you have to offer. If everyone else likes it then it must be good.

How To Get Free Traffic With Forum Posting

I absolutely love getting free traffic. Some may say that free traffic isn't really free because you have to pay with your time and effort. I personally don't mind paying for traffic in that sense because I love what I do. But it's better to do that instead of spending all that money on PPC (pay per click) and Facebook ads.

One of the best ways to get 100% free targeted traffic is posting on message boards. Whatever niche you may be in, there are plenty of message boards that you can register with. You must find the top two or three relating to your niche. It's free to join and all you have to do is create a profile with a signature linking to your website and introduce yourself. Get in the habit of posting quality content that will be useful for the board's members. You can sign in everyday and make one or two posts. If members like what you post, you will get tons of traffic to your site. And the most important thing about it is that it's targeted.

Make sure you don't spam the forum or tell members to click on your signature. Just post helpful and quality advice and people will click.

How To Get Traffic With Google

One of the best ways to get traffic from Google is with SEO which is search engine optimization. When someone is searching on Google for something using specific keywords, for example: How to make money with Facebook, your website should appear on the first page of search results. That is, if you have a website promoting a product that explains making money with Facebook.

In order to have your website on the first page of Google, your website should first be indexed. And the fastest way to have your website indexed by Google is having a Google Plus page. Google Plus was first created as a social network to compete with Facebook. Facebook now is the number one social network in the world with the most users and visitors. Even though Facebook can help you rank higher in Google search, Google Plus will almost instantly rank your website on the first page and the more plus ones you have, the higher your website is ranked.

If you have a product to promote then I would definitely recommend for you to create a Google Plus page, gain a following and join some communities related to your niche. Once you join a community you can post an article on their page and get a lot of traffic to your website. Even though Google Plus is still in its early stages, I think it has a lot of potential to beat Facebook, Twitter and all the other social networks when it comes to targeted traffic.
