Vagabonding by Rolf Potts

This is the book that reportedly inspired Tim Ferriss to create his masterpiece in the first place. Vagabonding is more about what you do with all the extra time you create for yourself. It’s about lifestyle design and it’s about choosing to prioritize travel and adventure and living life over just ‘making more money at work’. Learn about ‘mini retirements’ and much more!

2017-Are You Committed To Excellence?

Are You Committed To Excellence? This is a question to ask yourself today.We are in the first month of this new year 2017 and most of people they already forgotten their new year resolutions.

2017-Are You Committed To Excellence?

Us as affiliate marketers we need to commit,we need to keep doing our daily tasks,building lists,producing contents,sending emails and ofcourse learning everyday.

As you know affiliate marketing is certainly a great way we all can drive to achieve outstanding success. However, be careful, without intelligent planning and focused effort it’s almost impossible to go beyond mediocre income results.

This is simply because success never arrives by accident. Especially in Online Marketing where your success is always the result of repeated and coordinated actions, inspired by specific, tangible income goals, and duplicated by a large group of people over an extended period of time.

Does it sound too difficult? That’s great because in fact we all know that anything worth achieving is going to take effort and SMART (efficient, not hard) work.

I’m sure that all of us who are really committed to excellence instead of mediocrity, already have an intelligent plan for 2017 and are focused on accomplishing our goals.

Everyone else has the choice: keep on with their current attitude if they’re content with that, or decide to commit to excellence and start doing business accordingly.

And then of course, have faith, follow the path, never give up!

Ways to Drive Quality Traffic to Your Website

Getting quality traffic to your website can be a difficult challenge and this is the biggest problem that face many marketers today.

If you ask any marketer what he would like most, he’ll probably tell you “more customers”. What often follows customers on a business wish list? More quality traffic to his website. There are great ways to increase quality traffic on your website. Have a look:

Submit all of your pages to the Google index – for free.

Using Google Search Console when submitting your URLs helps Google’s web crawler to do a more complete as well as efficient job of crawling your website.

Search Console also allows you to submit your pages to Google index, and it is mainly useful in making sure that you understand about all dynamically generated pages or URLs that aren’t adequately linked to your website.

However, note that submitting a page or pages to the index won’t influence your PageRank or guarantee inclusion, and is not a replacement for creating useful and compelling content.

Get Social

It isn’t enough to produce good content and hope visitors will find it- you must be proactive.

Using social media channels when promoting your content is one of the best ways to increase traffic to your website. Twitter is the best for short, snappy (& tempting) links. Google+ promotion on the other hand can assist your website to show up in personalized search results & seem particularly efficient in B2B niches.

If you are a B2B product company, you may find great reaction with image heavy sites such as Instagram and Pinterest.

Create more content for your website

Content does not just mean the words found on your website’s pages. Content may take the form of how-to guides, blog posts, eBooks to teach your audience, whitepapers with facts and industry insights and many more.

It empowers your visitors with useful information to make them feel more comfortable turning to you for pieces of advice when they’re ready to become a client.

However, note that just writing a single blog post will not send tens of thousands of visitors to your site overnight. According to research, it takes just about 20 quality blog posts published regularly to start seeing considerable improvement on lead activity.

Guest Blogging

Guest blogging is one of the greatest ways to generate free traffic – you only have to invest in time to write a quality article. Contact the most popular blogs in your industry and find out if they can allow you write a guest post. Many website owners won’t have objections to having others write free content.

Conclusion

The above ways are some of the greatest strategies you can employ to increase quality traffic to your sites. Note that this may not happen overnight.

3 Tips For Driving More Traffic From Forums

Forums are a good source of traffic for every website. There are people who rely solely on forums to attract more visitors to their sites. You, however, need to know that unless you know how to rightly tap into this great source, you will not get the good results that you yearn for. If you have been wondering how you can do this, here are 3 tips for driving more traffic from forums.

3 Tips For Driving More Traffic From Forums

1. Be active

Nobody will bother to click on the links that you leave in forums if you do not post regularly. Look for threads that relate to your niche and leave a good reply. Start a new thread often and ensure that it is one that will attract people to comment on it by either offering more information or simply asking you to respond to their additional questions. This way, there are people who will be eager to see what you have posted lately and so, they will click through to your site.

2. Position yourself as an authority

You should let the people in the forums where you post know that you have expert information in your niche. For instance, if you are in the weight loss niche, ensure that you offer expert advice to anyone who seeks it. Your posts should also show that you fully understand your niche and that anyone who has any question about them can visit your site to learn more. This is sure bait that will help you to get more traffic than you can imagine.

3. Post in reputed forums only

This is where many people go wrong. Just because you can find lots of traffic through forums should not make you to believe that every forum is good for you. If you talk to any experienced website owner who uses forums, they will tell you that in as much as there are good ones; others will only bring your site down. There are forums that people do not want to associate with and if they find out that you are posting there, all they will want to do is to avoid you. Other forums will only bring you traffic that does not convert.

As you can note from these 3 tips for driving more traffic from forums, you need to be very careful with what you do. The good thing is that if you do it right, forums can be a source of reliable traffic for your site.

How To Decide On Autoresponder Software For Your Business

Choosing which autoresponder software to use on your business,could be one of the most important task you will have to do as a business owner,as you know building your email list is the most important task in your business and guess what your autoresponder is where you store those contacts.

How To Decide On Autoresponder Software For Your Business

What is Autoresponder?

An email auto responder is the software program that takes over as soon as one of your prospects opts in to receive your freebie, information or products/services. As the name hints, it will respond automatically, sending the requested information, and whatever else you tell it to. when it comes to making the purchase of an email auto responder, there are quite a few options to choose from. You could even decide not to purchase one but instead use one of the many free autoresponders available on the web.

Free autoresponder software

There are a lot of free autoresponder software out there. Keep in mind, however, that the free autoresponders don’t offer many necessary features and they often make their money by sending out advertisements with your outgoing emails. These can be a good place to start if you are just starting to build your list but later on you will definitely want to try a more effective service.

For my opinion Mailchimp is the best free autoresponder software,although , I think that Mailchimp, is a nightmare and a disaster but i  still think  actually it is a better choice than other “free autoresponders”.

Paid autoresponder software

If you want to take your online business seriously i will recommend you to go with paid profesional autoresponder software.

If you’re just starting out,i will recommend to start out with either aweber or getresponse,these by far are the standards of profesional autoresponders.

Aweber gives you free first month (they need a credit card but they won’t charge it until you finish your first month) and  $19 per month thereafter. GetResponse gives a month free (no credit card required ) and then charges $15 per month.

I know that can be difficult for some especially if you’re coming from third world countries but if you can dedicate two hours per day i am sure you can make at least enough money to cover your autoresponder service.

To be honest i will not use  a free autoresponder  myself, i will rather promote directly the affiliate link until i make enough money to cover the fee or just find a part time job that can help me with the cost until i start making some money with my business.
The question you have to ask yourself is whether it can possibly be wise to entrust the safekeeping and security of your business’s greatest, most important and least replaceable asset (your list) to a company whose business model is that of being a free autoresponder.

I think that it’s generally right at the start of their internet marketing careers, when people understandably have the least judgement about such situations, and the least awareness of the facts and realities involved, that such mistakes tend to be made.

Some people  say “Well, you can always back it up regularly, can’t you?”. Easily said. What are you going to do with it, after you’ve “backed it up”? How are you going to import it elsewhere? Who’s going to allow you to import it elsewhere, and under what conditions? (People don’t always think about these problems).

Another type of autoresponder software i will not recommend to you are that with MLM integrated in them,i am talking about trafficwave,gvo/pure leverage this type of autoresponders their main business is MLM that means that they are concerned more as business opportunity rather than business tool.Just stay away from them.

If you’re a blogger and you want to get the best of your blogger i will recommend to go for convertkit,in my opinion convertkit is the autoresponder software that was made for bloggers,by bloggers.If you’re a profesional blogger that will be the best choice but if you’re a normal affiliate marketer or just starting out then go for aweber or getresponse.

 

Why Do You Need A Squeeze Page

A squeeze page, also called a landing page, lead capture page or power page, has one goal–to capture the contact details of the visitor.

Why Do You Need A Squeeze Page

An example of Squeeze Page

The purpose of this is to create a contact list of customers and potential customers that you can begin to establish a relationship with, and hopefully maintain that relationship far into the future.

How do you get someone to leave you with his or her contact details in a world full of email hpye and spam? You offer them something (free or charge) that they cannot pass up.

In order to do this, you must be very in-tuned with your target market so that you can pinpoint their needs and make it very easy for them to turn over their email addresses to you.

While it is true that your goal is to make sales, obtaining the names of people who do not buy from you is also important. It has been estimated that the average consumer will look at an offer seven times before purchasing.

But how can you remind them of your offer if you do not have a way to contact them? That is why squeeze pages are so important. But it is just the first step of the process.

After someone fills out your landing page, you will first hand them what they wanted when they filled in their contact information. You can then direct them immediately over to the salespage of your product or service, or you can decide to just keep in contact with the contact by email.

If you send out informative, useful information in your emails, someone is more likely to buy from you than if you just send out constant sales pitches.

Lead capture pages are essential steps in the overall strategy of any internet marketer. Some pay upwards of 25,000 dollars to have a landing page developed for them. And the average cost of a landing page is 5,000 dollars.

If there is one thing that you can invest in when it comes to your online marketing efforts, it should very well be the landing page. An effective one will allow you to earn back your investment very quickly and move into the profiting zone.

A squeeze page will do exactly what you want it to do, which is act as the passageway to your business by giving your target audience what they want. Obviously, the better the product you offer, the better results you will get with follow-up and sales from the leads your page captures.

There are many softwares that can help you to build a good squeeze page,for starters you can just google squeeze page software and you will get a ton of them,but if you’re just starting out i will recommend to check out landing page monkey or instabuilder as they are very good and you just need to pay once.

For those more experienced and have some money to invest my highest recommendation will be clickfunnel as it is not just a squeeze page builder but also it can help you to build any marketing funnel you want,but it is not cheap.

You will need to have an autoresponder so that you can insert a form into your lead capture page. There are many auto-responders to choose from with some of the most recognized being AWEber, GetResponse, and Convertkit.

You can set your auto-responder to send an email to the visitor as soon as he or she completes the squeeze page form, and then to continue sending out emails that will help build your relationship with your list.

 

Auto Responder

Auto responder service is really a ‘must have’ service included in an Internet marketer’s box of tools. Together with your subscription for this on-line service, the marketer can put up a contact message to automatically be sent to his / her list each week to stay in touch with their subscribers.

Here are a few tactics I have discovered that work well:
When employing your auto responder to recommend the purchase of a service or product, you need to be careful the way you word your messages. Keep building on what your prospect’s problem is and how your service or product can solve that problem for them.
In your first email, welcome them and thank them for subscribing to your list. Let them know the benefits they’ll receive from you, such as: free ebooks, free audio recordings and free computer software. You’re getting them to truly like you and build trust. Don’t sell them anything in the very first email message.
In the 2nd email to your list, send them 2-3 links where they are able to visit sites to obtain free related products to your niche but, this time around, make your second and third links ‘affiliate links’ from other marketers’ websites you have joined as an affiliate.
They are still free products and services, such as: free membership to a website that provides many free items. You hide your longer affiliate link using tinyurl.com so you don’t tip them off. When they click on it (as they have become accustomed to do) they will go to the free membership site (or whatever item it is), get the free item and (hopefully) also buy one of the other items for sale.
In the 3rd email for them, send them 3 links where they are able to obtain a free software package, a totally free audio, or perhaps a free ebook. Again, you need to send them the 2nd and third link as a disguised affiliate link that you could earn a commission on.

This is the way you build your sales with auto-responder emails.
With each email message, make sure you are giving the client free information associated with the subject. It’s this that could keep them interested.
It is probable that, by the fourth email to your list, many people may have bought a few of the products and services available (i.e. those that are also offered by the free websites) and that you begin to see some commission payments enter your pay-pal account.
Remember, it’s a popular fact in marketing that visitors frequently need to be subjected to an offer seven times before they decide to purchase. Sales may begin slowly, but just getting it started is the biggest challenge.
