Challenges and Striving To Succeed

imagesIn life, winning is not the years of earning but rather how you
adapted to the circumstances that made you a winner.
The strongest and the smartest does not necessarily imply that
they are the ones to last. Sometimes it takes more than that and
something called adaptability.
Should you encounter various challenges, the only thing that
can bog you down is the inability to accept change.
Life in its own way comes with changes that we need to
embrace. It’s those who fail to accept change that gets left behind in
the race of life.

imagesAny successful organization is made up of people who are
capable of adapting to change.
Most individuals see opportunity as a rare occasion. Versatile
individuals on the other hand, see the change as the spark of new
opportunities.

 

imagesCircumstances that you have to endure in life can be redirected
as favorable events if you have the ability to adapt.
Like water in a vessel, a wise person adapts to the
circumstances that surrounds him.
When you let go of what you are, you will open the doors to
what more you could be.
Life has many mountains to climb. Do not falter if you fall
because the journey in life is the reward for your hardships.

imagesIf you wish to be successful, you need to develop habits that will help
you get there.
Think positive even if you are faced with a lot of difficulties.
Hope will help you get through and it can give you strength to pursue
your dreams.
Apart from thinking positively, your actions must also be positive.
Anybody can become successful. You just have to be focused in
achieving your goals.

Successful individuals spend their time wisely and if you want to be
like them, then you should do to.
Be open minded and calm especially when faced with difficulties.
This will help you make the right decisions.

imagesDon’t make excuses. This is only for people who are either lazy or
too scared. If you wish to be successful, you need to act on it.
Achieving success does not only rely on doing things for your own
benefit.
Without hard work, you can never expect to become a successful
person.
Make sure that you are always in good physical shape. This will help
as it is going to be the source of your energy. Without it, you cannot
do all the things that you want to do and if ever you try, you might not
do it properly.
Live a life with a principle and do things to achieve success by
conforming to a set of constructive principles.

Does Safelist Advertising Really Work

Does Safe list advertising really work?
Safelist have been one of the more effective means that I have used.

It doesn’t take a lot of time generally speaking, it’s free and it does generate some traffic.

So what is a Safe list?
Basically it’s a membership site that allows members to exchange emails with each other and what that means is, as you sign up as a member and you’ll receive emails from other members and vice versa you’ll be able to send emails as well, and that eliminates the spam problem you potentially have using, say solo ads and those other type things.

So there’s a few different types of safelists but the ones I’m using right now are generally speaking credit-based and they’re mostly free and I’ll get to that a little bit later, but what it is, you receive emails with a link to click on and when you click that link you earn credits, and in turn, you use those credits to send an email to the list.

How many safe lists are there?
There is probably thousands, I’ve never look to be sure, I turn them over, I don’t wanna say frequently, but I’m constantly looking at what kind of results I’m getting from the individual lists, and I probably have about 200 on a spreadsheet now, and I’ll occasionally look at some that I’ve used before that weren’t as effective and go back and try them again, eventually I do move them onto a list, where I kinda call it, (a do not fly list) I won’t use them anymore.

And as I said, most are free, some of the safelists have actual upgrades that you can do to a pro or elite membership, that gives you added benefits which involve some of them, you can email the list every seven days, but you can only send to a thousand members, so if you upgrade in some of them which are, yearly it’s not real expensive, but the upgrade allows you to send to more people, around three to five thousand people and then you can send more frequently every three days instead of every seven days.

So here are some tips:

Like most advertising on the Internet, content creation, videos, whatever it takes consistency in testing, so what I would do, is start out joining 10 lists, this will give you a good, you know you can join five whatever, but that’ll give you a good feeling for what they are, how they work, make sure you create tracking links to track where clicks are coming from and also your opt-ins, and I would say test the safelists for 30 to 60 days before you join another one, so those ten, I would try them out for  30 to 60 days, if you can handle more, join more, don’t stop, but it gives you a good starting point, and a good method to track, so I, generally speaking, I track mine for 90 to 120 days, rotating around to see if some have gotten better or I’ll also go out to Google and say you know what’s the best safelist, just look it up in and that’s a good way to do it to, if you don’t get any results, meaning no opt-ins, all you’re getting is clicks you’re not making any sales, I would put the safelist on hold add some more and keep churning that.

I have a list of about 20 that I get consistent results with there’s more and I mail more of them, but I have about 20 that get me between five and ten leads a day when the mailings are sent out, so that doesn’t mean I’m getting that many leads every day, but when I do send out each one of the lists, over a period of time it’s averaging out to about five to 10 leads a day some days I’ll get more some days I’ll get less.

  • Make sure you set up two gmail accounts. This is really important.
    One for your list emails (you will get tons from this list)
    One for your contact email

Alot of affiliate programs and things like that lately have been suggesting everybody use gmail, and the main reason there is because of Yahoo and some of the other email providers, the emails get blocked.

I have one list that I’m on, somebody will tell me I got an email, I’ll look and I haven’t received it, so I’ve been switching over to Gmail myself so you’ll set up two email addresses in a safelist, one just for the actual list for where all those emails will go, and you will get a ton, some of the lists, I get over 100 emails a day, so you want to make sure you have a list that’s just like called a throw away list. You wanna make sure you have a list that’s just for the list emails that are sent out, and then you set up a contact email and that’s where the safelist will send you updates and If somebody signs as a affiliate with you, you’ll get an email there.

Don’t get frustrated, it does take some time when I started out with them I was spending a few hours a day, clicking, emailing getting used to how those work, there is little bit a management involved but, it’s not overly complicated, each safelist is a little different, I’m not gonna talk about individual safelists, but try it out, right now it takes me about less than 20 minutes a day to actually do this.

There are some automation tools as well, I’m using one right now that actually clicks the emails for me I’m not going to get into detail there but that has been a huge time saver for me.

And here’s the thing, you come home from work or whatever and you’re gonna watch TV, just take your phone or your laptop and sit there and click it’s kinda mindless, there’s not a lot of thinking involved you’ll get the email there’s a link in it, just sit there and click, that’s what I did, I’d just be sitting watching the news or something and just click on the emails, and then also, one interesting thing is consider testing some of them, for the paid solo ads, that they offer, a few of the company’s offer’s, you can sign up and you can send to 10,000 people for seven bucks or something like that, and then some of them have good paid versions, if you’re getting some decent results with some of the of the safelists, sign up for their paid versions as well, because if you upgrade your account you can send to more people and also some of them also offer a number of solo ads you can do a month.

Increase Your Free Traffic Using SEO

250_x_250If you want to increase free traffic to your website, you need to take advantage of SEO – it’s no game, SEO is serious stuff when it comes to doing it right and ensuring you enjoy the benefits of increased traffic flow.

You need to create content that your readers want to read – content that has value. In that content you need to make sure that it is search engine optimized. We don’t mean stuffing keywords, but making sure your keywords are used in a natural flow at a rate of about 2% in your content.

Any links you place in your content should be from trusted sites. Even as a new website, there are natural links you can still obtain that are legitimate and recognized by Google and other search engines as acceptable. Don’t make the mistake of choosing links that are questionable just so that you have links in your content. You are better off to not have links than you are to have poor links.

When you add images make sure that you fill in the image attributes. Pictures do more than dress up the page. The details like caption, title, description and alternate text are important to the search engine. Don’t keyword cram but to make sure your keyword(s) are included in your image attributes. Remember some people will search using Google image search rather than text search and if your image(s) are highly visible you are likely to bring more traffic to your site through this resource.

Diversify your internal anchor links is also important. These are the links on your page that the search engines will find when they crawl your site. Finally, make sure your pages have at least 250 words, use fonts that are easy to read and headlines to help divide your page and make it easier to read.

Google will deem good content search worthy and proper use of SEO will help you to place higher in the search engines. Good content with good SEO equals increased traffic to your site.

Increase Your Traffic by Creating Shareable Content

Thumb-12SCIA431 So you want to increase your traffic to your site and you want to do it for free… how do you go about doing that? There are plenty of ways you can do this, but one that we’ll look at is to increase your traffic by creating shareable content.

Your content needs to be easily shared so that your visitors can help you spread the word. This is achieved through a combination of using a solid headline and an image that is interesting, along with a solid, captivating lead in.

This combination helps you to create the perfect small chunk of information about your article that can be shared on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other social media networks.

Lists are very popular for sharing amongst the many social networks. Sites like Mashable are able to do a fantastic job of using list headlines like “20 Ways to or 10 Signs of.” These do a great job of drawing the reader’s eye and compensate for short attention spans. You can learn from this site and other similar ones about how to create headings that work.

Your content needs to be interesting if you want anyone to be interested in sharing it with others. So, if you just throw something together expect your visitors to put as much effort into it as you did. It will fail! If you take your time to write something of interest that engages your visitors, they will be very interested in sharing it with other people they know, and those people will share it with others that they know, and so forth, it will grow and grow and grow. Suddenly you have an increase in traffic to your site that’s significant and best of off it’s free. Now that’s how you increase your traffic without spending money.

100 Quick Tips to Generating More Subscribers to Your Email List Pt 2

5. Encourage people who read your posts to write comments—When they
leave a comment, make sure your comment box has them fill in their
email address. This way you’ve begun the relationship immediately.
You’ve started communication with the person and you have their
contact information to stay in touch with them.

6. Tell them what you want them to do—People read your posts and
wonder what to do next. You don’t want them to just click out. Give
them a clear call-to-action message. Tell them to sign up for your
newsletter or ebook. Tell them to subscribe to your posts. Give them
something to do next that will give you their contact information.

7. Don’t clutter your sidebar—Don’t overload with widgets, links,
categories, etc. This can cause it to work against you. Make sure your
signup form is at the top of your sidebar.

8. Make sure your sidebar has these four things—email signup form,
search bar, ads (if you have them) and popular posts.

9. Use pop-ups—People are so used to seeing these now that they simply
type in their name and email address without giving it a second thought.
Some people, however, are annoyed by pop ups. This is where
knowing your target market helps. If you have a market that you feel will
be annoyed, then don’t use them.

10. Include more than one signup form—Not everyone reads every part
of your posts. If you just put your sign up form in one place only, they
might miss it. If you have it in several places, however, you increase the
chance that they will see it and be able to sign up on your list.

11. Offer your readers an incentive to sign up—People love to get things
for free. Giving them free videos, reports, ebooks, or even free gifts of some
sort is a great reason for them to sign up. Make sure your
incentive is relevant and provides value for the person subscribing.

12. Make testimonials available—If someone is debating whether or not
to sign up and they see others like what you have to offer, they’re more
likely to give you a try. Testimonials can be a strong influence. Be
prepared, however, people may leave negative comments. If they do,
use these as a chance to learn how to make your business better.

13. Go half-and-half—Give them half of a post with valuable content and
have them sign up to get the second half. It’s kind of like a cliff-hanger
in post form. Cut it off right at a point where they have to know what the
next thing you have to say is.

14. Offer credentials—This will stress that the information you have to
offer them will be of value to them. It gives you a sense of
professionalism.

15. Craft your welcome message—While this may not truly be a tip to
getting someone’s email address, it certainly is a tip to keeping them on
your list. Your welcome email is their first correspondence with you.
Make it something that will make them glad they registered.

16. Encourage your readers to ask questions—When someone reads
your post, if you encourage them to ask you questions, you can have
them give their name and email for the answer.

100 Quick Tips to Generating More Subscribers to Your Email List Pt 1

There are a lot of effective ways to build a good strong email list. Which way you choose to do it will depend on the business you operate, and your own personal preferences. The best way to do it is by doing it in a way that works for you. If you try one and it doesn’t work for you, try another. Try many different ways at the same time to do it until you find combination that is effective for you.

Task-List-icon
There are many methods you can use to build your list. There are also
some things you should do and not do. Below is a compiled list of 100 tips you can use that will help you in growing a quality email contact list that can help your company grow:

1. Ask people for their contact information—You were probably taught as a
child, “If you want something, ask for it.” It’s so simple that a lot of
people forget it. Whether you’re at a trade show and meet the people in
person, or whether it’s online, asking is so simple. Think about it. If
someone reads all of your article, they’re definitely interested. They
must like the way you write, or they would have clicked out. The end of
the article is a perfect place to ask people to sign up.

2. Post “Popular Posts” on your site—This can work two ways. People
may read your post and it may not be what they want. They can see all
your other titles and see something else that does give them what they
want. They may also read your article and think it was good. When
they see you’ve written a lot of other related posts, it will give you a
certain amount of credibility. This may make them want to sign up for
your email newsletter.

3. Give them valuable content—If they read something you post and it’s
valuable to them, they want more. Give them the opportunity to sign up
for more, and they will. On the other hand, give them content that
stinks, and they will never want to look at anything you have to offer
again.

4. Encourage your email readers to reply—Give them a real email address
to reply to. Nothing is more impersonal than getting an email that says
donotreply@leavemealone.com. If you never let them reply, how do you
know if they like what you write, or if they have questions?

The Right Way to Promote Affiliate Products on Social Media Sites

When it comes to social media and affiliate marketing, there are several things you need to know. It may seem difficult to combine the best of both worlds, but it is possible. There are several things you can do to make promoting affiliate products on social media sites turn out right.

Service title
All inclusive Marketing Tools and Affiliate Program

 

First of all, let’s start out by taking a look at social media. What may have just started out as a way to stay connected has taken off in the skyrocketing direction of promotion and marketing as well.

Social media is a great way to promote your product or service. Let’s take a look at social media and how it can benefit your business.

Trial and Error

Unfortunately, the best way to find out what works is to see what doesn’t work. This is so true when it comes to social media. For example, if you take a look at your Facebook posts over the last year, this will give you major insight as to what works and what does not.

We have all had a post that has caused controversy and something we wish we had never said or written for that matter. Sometimes, however, a little controversy is good when it comes to social media. It stirs the pot and gets people thinking.

Also, take a look at your most popular posts. What was it about that post that resonated with so many people? Take that and run with it.

Once you have had a bit of experience with Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook just to name a few, you will be in a more advantageous place to practice promoting your product or service.

Be an Expert

Chances are that your product or service is sold out there in social media land already. Being an expert in your chosen service or product gives you two legs up on the competition. Stretch your imagination and go the extra mile. Do extensive research on your product or service. In this way, when someone on social media has a question, you will have the answer.

Have a Unique Selling Proposition

When you have a unique selling proposition, you solve several problems for your potential client. First, you offer them a solution that they are already seeking and secondly, you inspire them to believe it is in their best interest to check out your product or service.

When it comes to selling on social media, it is a great idea to offer unique, interesting, and even offbeat information about your product rather than push for a hard sell. No one likes to feel they are being sold something.

Engage

Last but not least, engage with your audience in a friendly conversational tone. Talk to them and not at them. Engaging with your followers means you care about their needs, are friendly, and genuine.

Authenticity has a way of shining a bright spotlight on your product or service without you looking like you are pushing for a hard sell.
