Google Plus And Its Advantages

Google Plus or Google+ is a new social network that was created to compete with Facebook. Even though it's not as big as Facebook or Twitter yet, it is growing rapidly. Plus there is so much free traffic on this social network that is actually targeted traffic, instead of traffic from Facebook and Twitter which has the most visitors but may not be interested in your product.

The best way to utilize Google Plus is to join communities that are related to your niche. Join as much as you can and post on their page (without spamming of course). You can also start your own community and let others join and post their ads. The more communities you join, the more of a chance you have to get your product shown. If people like what you post, they will +1 it and when that happens, Google will take notice of it. The more +1's you have, the higher your website gets ranked in Google.

That's another reason why Google+ is becoming one of the best social networks. It is the best way to apply SEO to your website. So create a Google+ page, join communities and post on them. Also you can start a blog like the one you are reading now. Every article that you post on your blog automatically gets posted on your Google+ page. The more articles you post on a daily basis, the more followers you get on Google+. It's very important to get as much followers and Plus Ones that you can. All that traffic for FREE!

Invest Your Money Into Your Business

Out of all the money I make, some goes to necessities, some goes to charity, some goes to fun and entertainment and the rest I invest back into my business. I don't think that it takes money to make money because I have made money out of nothing. But the money I do make I like to put some of it back into whatever project that has made me money. If it works then why not spend it on making it work bigger and better?

This method is highly effective because not only you're not losing any money in the process but you always have money coming in. The more you put into it, the more comes out. If you have a Facebook page that's promoting a product and you're earning sales from that page, you can use some of that money to run an ad campaign. You can also spend money on Google Adwords and Bing Ads as well. Test things out and see what works and what doesn't. Once you find something that does work, you can invest your earnings in that so you can keep the money coming in.

All professional businessmen have been using this tactic because it works. It's good to get in the habit of spending money on your business because money is a tool. You can use money to make more money. Have your money work FOR you instead of working for it.

Setting Up A Squeeze Page

In order to be really successful at internet marketing, you need a squeeze page and an opt-in list of subscribers. If you have a product or service you want to sell, it would be wise for you to not sell it directly. Sure you can get a sale here and there if you choose to go that route but you can reach a whole lot more people if you have subscribers.

All of the top internet marketers have been using the squeeze page method for years and it never dies out. There is a widely popular saying within the internet marketing world that the money is in the list. Set up a squeeze page where the customer can opt-in as a subscriber. They enter their name and email address and in turn they get a free report about your product. You follow up with your subscriber by email and that's when you do the selling. Plus if you have more products, you can follow up with your subscribers and promote other products.

In order to follow up with all your subscribers, you need an auto-responder service. All you need to do is write one email and the auto-responder sends the email to all of your subscribers with just one click. This method is far more better than just having a sales page that promotes your product directly. Plus everyone likes free stuff. Everyone likes free samples. Offer your customers something that's free first then you promote the sell.

How To Deal With Negative People

There are always going to be people that talk down on others just so they can feel better about themselves. People that do that are really empty inside and in fact hate themselves. If you are working towards some goal, especially a big one, there are going to be naysayers and doubters. But they are there for a good reason. Without them, you wouldn't have anyone to prove wrong.

The best way to deal with such people is to stay positive and stay focused. Look ahead and don't look back. There is always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The negative people in your path are just there to keep you from getting that gold because deep down in their mind, they know you deserve it. Like they say, flies pick at the best fruit and if you didn't have any criticism, especially negative criticism, how would you know if you're on the right track?

Whatever you do, don't let negative people get under your skin. Just know that you have something good coming your way. Nothing good ever comes to negative people so of course they are going to be jealous of you. You are running a race and it's important that you keep your eyes on the finish line. You are a winner and winners win, even when they lose. But negative people lose all the time. Stay away from them. Avoid them and surround yourself with positive people.

What Inspires You?

Lets face it. We all need inspiration. There's always a time when someone comes along with an idea and they make that idea into a reality. It's events like these that motivate us to go after our dreams because if they can make it then so can we.

When I started out internet marketing, I didn't look up to other internet marketers at first. My idols were people who were successful in other fields. When I made my first sale, I knew I was on to something. That's when I started looking up to other marketers. Some of the top affiliates and program creators gave me inspiration to keep going even though I wasn't making that much money.

So ask yourself. Who do you look up to? Who or what inspires you? Who would you want to be like? It doesn't have to be an internet marketer. It could be anyone that's successful at what they are doing. Go ahead and pick up some books about these people and read their story on how they got to the top. I'm pretty sure they all had some trials and tribulations they went through. But nothing is easy, and who wants nothing?

Market Like A Rock Star

When I was young I wanted to be like Axl Rose. Guns-N-Roses were one of my favorite bands back then. I would play the song "Welcome To The Jungle" and stand on my bed while looking at the mirror doing the Axl Rose snake dance. It's funny that I'm now thinking of it. Too bad I didn't turn out living my rock star dream but over the years I realized that I can be a rock star at whatever I do in life.

Internet marketing is my passion and I do it not for the fame or money but for the recognition. Everybody wants to be recognized for whatever they are doing. Social media has helped people a lot with that department. With platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, almost anyone can get recognized if they put the effort in it. And if someone gets many views, likes and followers, your product or service gets more attention.

That's what it's really all about. Getting the person's attention. Develop a certain look or personality and people will no doubt take notice to what you have to offer. If your credentials are good then your product must be good too. I recommend you to read the book "How To Win Friends & Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. It will show you how you can have rock star status by getting people to like you. The more people like you, the more popular you get. People are going to spread the word somehow so you must get out there and show what you got.

Why Internet Marketing?

Many people start internet marketing for various reasons. Some want a way to make a decent income that's easy. Some are willing to quit their job. Some just want to do it out of freedom. Whatever your reason is, you must consider it before taking action. If you really knew why you want to be an internet marketer then nothing would stop you from being exactly that.

The reason I got into this was to be successful. I don't know how you may define success but money is only a part of it. I knew there were others doing this and were making a good living at it. I wanted to be just like them. Plus it was something brand new to me and I wanted to conquer it. I also wanted to do it so I can have passive income. Passive income is money that's coming in automatically without having to work so hard. I work diligently but I really don't call it work because I actually like doing this. It beats being at a job I don't even like and working hard for the same amount every week or so. With passive income, there really is no "same amount".

So ask yourself. Why do you want to start internet marketing? If you don't have an answer to that then I suggest you think about it before doing it. This doesn't just applies to internet marketing but anything you begin to do. You might start a venture and realize that it's not for you and that's fine. But if it is for you then you will succeed because you'll stick with it.

Keywords and SEO

One of the best and most effective ways to get a lot of free traffic is applying SEO. SEO is search engine optimization. When someone goes on a search engine such as Google, Bing and Yahoo to look for something, there are websites on that page that they can click on. Rarely anyone looks on page 2 so it's very important to have your website on the first page. You also want your website at the top of the page as well.

The way to make this happen is the use of certain keywords. You can go on https://adwords.google.com/KeywordPlanner to pick keywords you want to use for your website. The trick is to use keywords with the least competition with the highest search rate. When you implement the keywords to your site, try not to overuse them. That's called "keyword stuffing" and can get your website penalized.

Also use keywords in your domain name as well. Say you have a website about fishing. You may want to add the word "fishing" in your domain. It'll help you get ranked high if you use keywords in a domain. You can also use keywords for your Facebook page url, twitter user name, blog url and any other social network that you may be using.

In order for people to find your website, keywords are definitely the way to go.

My Thoughts On Having A Mentor

A lot of people get into internet marketing and don't have the slightest clue on how to actually get started. They wonder how all the top marketers are making all that money and they want to know how to get in contact with one of them so they can be a pupil or some student. But then they wonder how they are going to come up with the money to pay such a teacher to share with them all their secrets to success. But do they really need a mentor?

The best and most simple way to be successful is to see what other successful people are doing and just copy them. And when I say "copy" I don't mean plagiarism. I mean the very act of modeling of what they do. When I first started internet marketing, I too didn't have a clue on how to get started and what to do and so on. I was lost just like most beginners. I was a new jack looking for a Scooby snack. But the problem was that I didn't know exactly how to get it. I took a lot of chances and lost. Then I started to think that I needed someone to teach me how to get it done. And then I realized that I didn't need anyone to teach me anything. I just did my research and found out who the big dogs were and pretty much started to do everything that they were doing.

I'm not saying that having a mentor is useless. But mentors don't come cheap. You'd be lucky enough to find someone willing to show you how to make money online for free (like me for example). The quickest way to the top is to look at those who are already there and just follow their footsteps.

Have Patience

With the new explosion of social media, the world is now used to having everything, especially information at an instant. We want everything fast because we are now used to it. This is probably one of the most important factors why people give up on internet marketing because they don't see the results they would like to see right away.

When I first started internet marketing I think it took me about a year or two before I made an income. During those times of not making money, I was learning everything on my own and making mistakes here and there. Even though I didn't make any money at that time, I kept on working at it because I knew there was potential in my business. I wasn't one of those people that just gave up because I didn't see any sales yet. But once the sales came in, they never stopped. So I'm glad that I didn't quit.

Everything in this world has some type of time period. It takes 24 hours for the Earth to spin one rotation. It takes the Earth 365 days to orbit the sun. It takes 9 months for a baby to be born and it takes about a minute to order and receive a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Everything has a time period. There are no such thing as "get-rich-quick" programs. Believe me. In the beginning, I have looked and looked and pretty much fell for all of them. They simply just don't exist.
