Do you ever get the feeling that posting to Twitter is a waist of time because your post
disappears just as fast as it was posted? I know exactly how you feel! I have felt the
same feeling until I fell upon a secret that probably most Twitter members don’t know
about. This is not really a secret, it’s just not something people come a cross when they first start posting.
What is this secret?
It is called using keywords! WHAT?
I know it sounds crazy but here me out for a second while I explain.
One day I was doing some research on Twitter. Some of things I found I all ready
knew about except for the one thing that mattered, using “KEYWORDS”.
You have probably noticed a search box on the right side under all your followers
thumbnails. Well, it isn’t there to look pretty! It’s there for you to use as a tool to
find your targeted market using keywords. That’s right I said targeted market!
I know targeted market is a stuck in the mud because people want to know how to determine their targeted market but just don’t seem to get it so, they throw it to the side and forget about it. But if you take time and do a search you will find people who are talking about your particular keyword for your targeted audience. When you add these keywords into your post it will appear under that search. Plus, you can save your keywords to keep track of what’s working for your market.
When you think your posts are not being viewed you are probably right if you’re not using keywords. But if you take the time and research the keywords for your targeted market you will get tons of traffic to your site.
Build Traffic Flow To Your .WS WebSite With These SEO Tips
Failing to use the right Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques will mean that very few visitors (Read Very Few Prospects) will ever find your site. You need to get found by using the simple tips for your .ws GDI site below.
SEO may be something that you decide to (spend cash on to) outsource. If you do this, make sure that you are knowledgeable enough about the site you are signing up with to ensure the success of your web page. There are plenty of internet marketing “experts” and SEO “gurus” around who will happily charge huge fees for sub-par work. As a minimum, track their results. Look at work they’ve done for previous clients, read customer testimonials with a grain of salt, and compare what they tell you against information you can find online. If they don’t know how to set up results tracking, you can bet they don’t know much about SEO or Marketing. You are much more likely to be satisfied with your results if you are up front with them on how you plan to verify their work.
Should you not have the funds to have someone else do the work, here’s what you can do to help get your site noticed by the search engines and improve your page ranking.
To increase your search engine ranking, include written transcripts of any audio and video content on your site. By providing transcripts for any audio or videos, your content can be understood by the automated robot search engines and included in their search engine listings.
Use the longer or plural form of keywords to generate more search engine hits. Keyword stemming is used by a variety of search engines. When you choose the singular of the keyword (e.g. accountant) results for the plural or variations (i.e. accountants, accounting) may not send seekers to your website. If you use the longer form of the word, then your site will be included in the searches that include the shorter form of the word as well.
It is critical that you remain aware of your standings in the search engines, when it comes to search engine optimization. If you don’t keep track of your standings then you will not know if your efforts in SEO are paying off. You can follow your page rank with the Google toolbar or Alexa.
Make sure you implement the use of social networking sites such as Twitter and Google Plus as a means to improve your SEO. YouTube makes it easy to include video of demonstrations or product features, while social sites such as Facebook and Twitter offer direct interaction with your customers. I find Pintrest to be a big time waster for most businesses, but if you want to reach an artistic or crafty crowd, you may want to test it for a few days and use special links to track the results. As of this writing, I have found my tests for use with GDI to be a total waste of my time… just so you know what I personally found. Twitter has been my best free social site with Google Plus a close second. Facebook is great for communicating with friends and family and to get aricles indexed by the search engines, but like Pinterest, it’s not been much help in actually finding new leads.
You can improve your ranking on search results pages by offering an abundance of content that covers different ideas within a given niche. As an example, if you have a blog about knitting, include articles about pattern types, book reviews and how to’s. The more expansive your content is, the higher chances you have of gaining a solid following. Search engines also love BLOG’s that update new content regularly at least a couple times a week.
Talk with an education or non-profit website to see if they will provide a link on their site to content on your site. When you are linked by a reputable source, this is seen as higher quality content for the search engines. Add high-quality articles to your website that will make other organizations want to feature you on their site. Make your content worthy of attention from these organizations. Comments on reliable high ranking site BLOG posts with your link as part of your signature block (used sparingly) also work well to increase your page rank.
Spiders sent out by search engines are constantly on the lookout for fresh content. A blog is an excellent way to attract these spiders because you can update it constantly. Furthermore, truly good-quality content will often be passed around. After that, those who shared your articles will return to read more, as will many of their friends. Recently the search engines have begun to give a higher ranking to sites that are both tablet and mobile friendly. This means that your site needs to be able to be read by multiple size applications and systems.
You don’t want website failure. That’s the last thing a business wants. Although tons of online businesses fail, many actually do succeed by applying methods that have been proven successful for other web-based business owners. Don’t be afraid to spend some time looking at what other successful sites in your niche are doing and then do the same type of things on your site.
Last, but not least by any means:
Once you gain some verified experience and proven results, You should sell yourself to others as a specialist in your field. As an expert this is a great tool for Internet marketing that can make you serious money. Creating a website that is designed around a niche of buyers is absolutely critical. Then, use search engine optimization tools to help buyers find your services and products. Keep in mind that it’s critical to your company’s success to give customers the items they want, rather than what you might assume they want.
The smarter you are about network marketing, the more success you will have in any business. This short article will hopefully give you some advice about easy ways network marketing can assist you in achieving the success you desire.
Start by giving yourself a narrow focus on your business goals and work towards long-term consistent results daily. You will probably have a long-range goal in mind for your business, perhaps looking for a three or five years completion. That’s a good thing! The best way to get there is going to be to break that long term goal into smaller short term goals that lets you focus immediately on moving forward. That’s what is going to create and build a sturdy long term foundation for these larger goals. It also let’s you feel success on a regular basis and that keeps you looking forward and motivated.
A good example in Network Marketing is to focus on leads that seem prospective and enthusiastic. Don’t ignore anyone, I’m just suggesting you spend the best part of your time where it is most likely to build success. Leads are a necessity to generate money. No other business tasks are so closely tied to your revenue. Obtaining good quality leads, and converting them to clients (income) are the two primary activities that directly affect your bottom line.
If you want to stand out as one of the leaders in your field, you must enjoy helping others achieve success. Once you are at a place where you are trying to help people through what you are marketing, you will notice that you will start to see a rise in your profits.
Before investing any time or capital with any network marketing company, look the company up with The BBB. While many companies are legitimate and have been there for many years, there are always a fair share of bad ones that come along all the time. Find out as much as possible about a company before investing. I recommend that you check the BBB ratings for the business you are investigating, and see if there are any complaints. Then, don’t shy away if there are a few, read both the negative and positive account. There will always be those that didn’t follow the rules or the directions and then complain when things didn’t work. Talk to others involved and research the online community for information. Make an informed decision.
Next, you know that People love to get a deal! Seek out network marketing opportunities that include coupons or included bonus features to share with your customers. You can use the coupons as prizes for a special event, send them randomly for participation, or you can just hand them out to everyone who is willing to buy a product. People will be thankful to you for the saving them money, and will be more likely to purchase a product from the company now rather than later because of the discount.
Learn what the leaders in your company are doing and copy successful strategies. Pay attention to the people above your level and other leaders in the network at all times. Look at what they are doing right to achieve their successes and apply the same positive mentality to your own life. Imitating individuals who are successful will only bring you closer to the top. You should learn from the success others have, the same way you learn from your own mistakes. If you do try something new, document what you do and track the results. If it’s not as good as the others, go back to what works and re-assess what happened.
Do not waste any of your time. The internet is full of distractions. Create a schedule for yourself and stay focused when you work. The hours can change to spend the quality time with family and friends, that’s why you want to work for yourself… right? Just don’t neglect the business as that’s where your real freedom comes from.
As you research and consider different networking opportunities, opt for one that sells products that interest you. Your interest in and the use of the products will be obvious to others, and your customers will develop and interest in them as well. If you don’t like a product, chances are your prospects won’t either.
This is a really big one! It is crucial that you are honest to yourself and your prospects. Are you getting into network marketing as a business and not to just be a hobby? Hard work and perseverance are the keys to success in any business venture. Network marketing is not different.
You will need to Determine which people are going to be interested in hearing about your products. Some people, especially family and friends are going to be totally turned off by what you are doing. When you show the product you’re offering to someone, do it in a manner that will cause them to want to tell people what they learned about it. You should also consider a person’s network when deciding how much time you want to spend marketing to them. If someone has a small network and has no intention of purchasing from you, your time would be better spent elsewhere. Your best advertising is going to be in your success with the product and the free time you now have to do the things you like most.
The guidelines from this article should allow you to take control and boost your success. Remember that your goal is to generate more sales. Leave no leaf unturned in your pursuit of the best network marketing program possible, and you will see the benefits in your bottom line. It’s also OK to start small and work your way up to the higher priced products. Getting to that point where you no longer work for anyone but yourself is a success that the majority of the worlds population never achieves. Enjoy your success!
It all started as a result of schoolteacher Lori Lange looking for a way to stay home with her son.
Famous in her circle of friends for organizing themed dinner parties, Lori was continually being asked to share her recipes …
So she decided to start a food and entertainment blog where she posts recipes, party ideas, cooking experiences, diet suggestions and more.
Now ten years later, her recipegirl.com site gets as many as 1.8 million page views per month and earned her a subscription list of 24,000 people.
She’s also published a collection of recipes in “The Recipe Girl Cookbook,” has large companies such as Kraft and Gold Medal hiring her to develop recipes with their products, and gotten the opportunity to travel, doing tours such as a cheese-tasting tour of Europe and a culinary tour in Mexico.
“I’m making more than I ever would have teaching and I have the ability to travel, live where I want and do what I love, ” she says.
Sounds ideal doesn’t it? Making more than you ever thought possible…doing something you love…and having the freedom to do what you want, where you want and when you want.
It’s okay if recipes aren’t your thing. You can develop information products and resources about anything. About your business. About a hobby you love. About a subject you know a lot about.
The thing is…there must be thousands of recipe sites on the Internet. And I imagine many have come and gone in the ten years Lori’s has been around. Truth be told, whatever your topic or interest is, there’s a chance that other people are writing about it and making money.
So what makes a site like Lori’s build a substantial subscriber list and still be going strong ten years later?
Today I’ll discuss three things “Recipe Girl” does well that will help you create better information products…no matter what the format your info-product takes (books, webinars, speaking, coaching etc.)
See you next time…unless I figure out how to automate that too,
Darcy Juarez, “Queen of Automation”

The Greatest Financial Gift You Can Give to Your Children
By Tom Dyson, publisher, The Palm Beach Letter
I wrote this essay for your children and grandchildren. You’ve probably heard about America’s huge debt load. The U.S. government’s financial obligations now exceed $663,000 per American family. This burden will fall on the youngest Americans. It’s unethical. It’s unfortunate. But it’s the reality. With this giant financial obligation bearing down on them, it’s critical that now – right now – your children and grandchildren learn about money and finance. They need to know the basic principles… like how to be independent, why debt is dangerous, and how to grow money. They don’t teach finance in schools. If you don’t teach them this knowledge, no one will. They call this financial illiteracy. If our children are financially illiterate, they have as much chance of survival as a swordsman in a gunfight. There will be no mercy for the financially illiterate in the future. It’s likely these people will live as indentured servants to the government and its creditors. But if our kids have a grasp of finance and its basics – and they obey its laws – they will grow up rich. They will be in a position to help other Americans, too. Below, you’ll find the three vital financial concepts all children need to understand. Please pass them on to your children and grandchildren as soon as you can. I have three young children… And these three concepts are my starting point for their financial education. First of all, our kids must know that they are not entitled to money or wealth… or anything for that matter, even Christmas presents. They must earn money. I want my children to learn that they shouldn’t expect anything to be handed to them. I don’t want them to rely on the government for their livelihood, like many people do right now. So many people treat money and prosperity as an entitlement. The government even calls its welfare programs "entitlements." This word – and what it represents – gets stamped into young people’s brains. Kids act as if they are somehow entitled to toys, video games, and cars. But why should they be? Just because they have parents, it doesn’t mean they should get everything they want… or anything at all, for that matter. I plan to regularly remind my children of this when they are old enough to understand it. And I’m not going to pay my kids an allowance. An allowance would reinforce the sense of entitlement. They can make money by earning it: doing the dishes, making their beds, mowing the lawn… there are a million things. My wife and I will pay them for doing those things. But I’m not going to just give them money. The second concept our children need to understand is debt. Debt is expensive. If you abuse it, it will destroy you. Like the entitlement mentality, debt is an enslaver. It robs you of your independence. I avoid debt in my personal life… and when I’m choosing investments. The best way to illustrate the cost of debt is to calculate the total amount of interest the debt generates in dollars over the lifetime of the loan, instead of looking at the interest rate (like most people do). Once you look at it like that, you can see how expensive borrowing money really is. For example, say you borrow $100,000 with a 30-year mortgage at 7%. Over 30 years, you’ll end up paying $140,000 in interest to the bank. In the end, you’re out $240,000 for a house that cost less than half that. Not a good deal. The third thing our kids need to learn is the power of compound interest and the best way to harness it. Compound interest is the most powerful force in finance. It is the force behind almost every fortune. The brilliant Richard Russell calls compound interest "The Royal Road to Riches." And it’s mathematically guaranteed. Let’s say, for example, you have $100 earning 10% annual interest. At the end of a year, you’ll have $110. During the second year, you’ll earn interest on $110 instead of $100. In the third year, you’ll earn interest on $121… and so on. This is the power of compound interest. The numbers get enormous over time, simply because you’re earning interest on your interest. Because time is the most important element in compounding, it’s an incredibly powerful idea for children to understand. They have the ultimate edge in the market: the time to compound over decades. The stock market is the best place to earn compound interest. You buy companies that have 50 years or more of rising dividend payments ahead of them. Then you let the mathematics work. As soon as my kids are old enough to understand some arithmetic, I am going to sit down with the classic compounding tables and show them which stocks they have to buy. I’ll use Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, and Philip Morris as examples. Another very safe place to save and compound your money is our "Income for Life" strategy. It involves using a uniquely designed, dividend-paying, whole life insurance policy from a mutual life insurance company. This type of policy is one of America’s best-kept and most misunderstood secrets. After that, assuming they have the discipline to follow through, they will get rich. There’s no doubt about it. In sum, you have the responsibility to educate your kin about finance. If you don’t, no one else will, and they will suffer for it. Encourage them to work hard and avoid the entitlement mentality. Teach them the power of compound interest and explain the dangers of debt. If you do this, you will equip your kids and grandkids to survive financially in the difficult circumstances ahead. You’ll provide them with something that nobody can place a price on: the power of independence.
