Do you find yourselves in a situation where you do not get enough time to blog? Does it happen that you create a schedule for your entire day, and find that have most of the things that you planned went untouched, the entire day.
This is a normal phenomenon and every internet marketer and Blogger comes across this situation a lot of times. How would you arrest this situation?
Time is of utmost importance in blogging and Internet Marketing. The 80-20 principle, about which a lot of bloggers have written and talked about, is something that has proven to hold true in Internet Marketing.
What is the 80-20 rule?
The 80-20 rule is also called as the “Pareto Principle”, “law of vital few” and the “principle of factor sparsity”. It is defined as follows -
Pareto principle is a theory that states that 80% of the effects are the result of 20% of the source(s) or participants, of any given event. A few items contribute the most; these are the vital few, as opposed to the trivial majority.
This means that 80% of the result is influenced by 20% of what you do. This holds good in anything that you do and and that is where this rule carries value.
In blogging too, it is true that 20% of the things that you do is what determines 80% of the results. Put ...
This is the 2nd post in the series on Email Marketing and List building tips. For those of you who did not read the first post, you can read it here.
One of the most important aspects of deciding on an auto responder is the availability of a broadcasting facility.
For people who do not know what a broadcasting facility is, I will first explain it in a bit detail.
Auto responders provide you with the option of lining up pre-set messages to be sent to your subscribers. These messages could be sales letters, news feeds or, even informative articles that you want to send to your subscribers. This means that every subscriber in your list will get the ...
Once again it is that time of the year when there are quite a few new year resolutions to make an independent living and set up your own internet marketing business.
Once again there will be a huge number of internet marketing newbies ready with their pockets open, who will shell out money on anything and everything so that can achieve that dream of their – to be free of the 9-5 treadmill.
But are all these courses desirable? Is it advisable to spend money on anything and everything that is sold on the internet?
Of course, not.
Selective buying and selectively choosing on feedback and brand image is what is ...
In order for any blog to rank in the search engines, you need to have a good pagerank and some quality backlinks. Pagerank is a factor of many things and backlinks form a major part of the ranking algorithm.
But where will you get these backlinks from?
Most of the blogs these days prefer to be “nofollow”, thanks to the Spammers. What this has done is that it is put a full-stop to the association in terms of backlinking and traffic referring that used to be there some time back between bloggers from the same niche. So now backlinks are being sold at the price of gold. Would you want to buy one? Is it preferable? These are questions that are not ...
How will it feel if you had around 30,000 PLR articles at your disposal?
I wouldn’t feel anything.
If you have been into Internet Marketing for some time now and your are not making some decent money from it, in spite of the fact that there are a few thousand PLR articles stored in your Computer’s hard drive, then you would know the reason why I said, I wouldn’t feel anything.
PLR articles are something that is meant to just fill up the vacant hard drive space in your computer and do nothing. It is not normal with most of us starting out on the internet. We collect thousands and thousands of PLR articles and let them be there. Only ...
When I launched this blog in December 2008, my objective was to only share everything that I went through in my journey to establishing myself in the internet marketing business.
I knew there were quite a few people out there who start off like I did – with very less money and little information about the internet. Consequently they fall prey to the scams and start buying everything that the so-called GURUS of the internet promote. Eventually they find that they have exhausted all their money and have nothing to invest in important things like an auto-responder or, a hosting plan.
Who am I? Where do I stand in who’s who of the internet? Does that really matter till the time the ...
Another year has passed and it is time to sit and review you achievements for the year. But what is even more important is planning for the next year. The big question at this point is – Do you have an agenda for the next year?
Every new year brings in time for newer resolutions. But the year that went never gives you the time to sit down and evaluate your performance on the last year’s resolutions. This is probably because of the what we have been taught all these years – “Focus on the future. Forget your past”. If you were not taught this, then you were really lucky. But I learnt it this way and hence have always been ...
Did you get a chance to see the latest offering from Google?
This is called SideWiki.
After the first 2 – 3 days of using it I feel that it is inspired by the latest phenomenon on the internet – Micro Blogging.
Twitter is today the hottest topic on the internet and it has redefined what Micro Blogging is. But with its extensive publicity and usage, Twitter has become more of a spamming tool than anything else. By this I do not mean that it has become a complete waste of time. Though most of the messages that you get at Twitter are more of spam, there are quite a few informative messages as well. There are also a lot of people and ...
“The Money is in the list” is a useless and worthless statement.
This statement has been professed by the Internet Marketing Gurus over the past so many years and every newbie internet marketer jumping onto the “make money online” bandwagon comes in with a subscription to an autoresponder and a squeeze page, hoping that people will come and sign up at this squeeze page and he will straight away start making lots and lots of money online.
I have seen only a handful of them succeed online. The rest simple fade away from the internet and go back to their 9-5 treadmills with the belief that Internet Marketing and Email marketing does not work.
My beginning too was like this. When I started ...
I am a regular visitor and user of Google Trends. Google Trends is a place I often find useful information and valuable niche information to promote my products. But as the wise men says, “You never really learn anything completely. There is always something more to learn”.
This was precisely what I experienced today. I was browsing through the latest trends at Google and was unable to find anything worthwhile. As I browsed through the various news and stories, I was particularly attracted towards a news that was “hot”. It was about some spiral lights that appeared in the skies in Norway which people were guessing as to what it could be. Some called it a UFO, yet others called it ...
