Get Facebook FansA star is nothing without fans! And this works not only for stars, but also for businesses, persons, profiles and so on. Fans are people that gather around a common link and love the same things.

This is more noticeable in the case of the Facebook fans that show their appreciation by liking a page that provides great interests. On the other hand, the businesses that have a Facebook page active fight in order to get more fans.

Everyone gets a kick from seeing that their work is appreciated by millions of people. It shows that their labor was worth the pain and the cause that they are representing is loved by lots of people.

But taking into account the latest developments in terms of social media strategies, it has become harder to get more Facebook fans without a few tips and tricks that can encourage and stimulate people into liking one’s page.

Especially in the case of businesses, the number of Facebook fans has to be very high in order to spread the news on a larger scale and appeal to a great variety of people. So, don’t be afraid because you are not alone in this!

Here are 10 tips that will help you enlarge your Facebook fans number in a short period of time, with just a bit of effort.

10 tips for getting more Facebook fans

Buy Guaranteed Facebook Fans

1. Photos. These are very important because Facebook fans can be engaged, entertained and amused by a great photo. If it is possible, connect it to your brand and the fans will start pouring.

2. Quality. Always, in everything you do, make sure you provide quality. This little thing will take you higher than you have ever thought and people will be very interested in becoming your clients since you are the one that delivers quality. So offer valuable content and information that can engage and attract Facebook fans.

3. Contests. Facebook fans are crazy about contests. Even if you only give away a free membership to something, a book or any small thing, word will spread and your brand will start receiving appreciation (fans, likes, shares and comments) in no time.

4. Mobile. More and more Facebook fans have started using their smart phones in order to browse over the Internet. Optimize your page so that it offers great mobile experience and you will notice that the number of fans will start increasing rapidly.

5. Facebook Button. Don’t you forget about this button or by this matter about any social media method that allows you to share your content. Give fans the opportunity to find you and get in touch with your Facebook page. Do not let them do all the work!

6. Interact. Don’t be miss/mister “I don’t care you are my fans, I’m not talking to you.” If you treat people with indifference (don’t answer their questions, respond to comments, give thanks for appreciation), people will treat YOU with indifference.

7. Updates. Keep your peeps updated with the latest news and posts about your business and not only. Mix it up and add some flavor to your page. People go on Facebook to discover more on everything, not everything about something.

8. E-mail. Use your Facebook link in your e-mail signature. This way, every e-mail that you send out can become an opportunity to add more Facebook fans. The key is to take advantage of every opportunity!

9. Videos. Fun videos with you and your team working hard, or “how to do” tutorials and all sorts of other videos presenting new products will get your Facebook fans to become more interested in what you have to say.

10. Buy. This might be the last tip, but it is definitely an important one. Now you can buy packages with Facebook fans without having to pay gigantic amounts of money, offer personal information or get blocked by Facebook. Everything is safe, fast and easy.

Guest post by Chris Miller

Designing websites properlyDo you fear that your current website is becoming a basket case, unable to compete with the websites of your competitors?

A good design and robust functionalities are two aspects paramount for a website, and you just cannot afford to do away with either.

If you fear that the design of the website is soon turning obsolete, and you feel it’s about time you revamped it, we present you here with the top 7 latest design ideas of achieving the same.

Find out below the top 7 trends in the field of website design, which has taken the industry like a storm and are here to stay:

  1. Responsive design of websites – This is one trend which has actually taken the industry like a storm and has turned some serious heads in the field of website design. The concept is primarily simple. You design one website optimized for different devices, namely, the laptops, the desktops, the smart phones, tablets and others. With the mediums for accessing the websites changing with every passing day, and new web-savvy devices being introduced in the market ever so often, responsive web design assumes an even greater prominence.
  2. Conspicuous and Fixed header file – Again, the concept of this new age web design trend is fairly simple. You create a header file and keep it fixed across the top of your website. The design concept is being actively used to create colossal brand awareness and get the online users to identify and remember the brand.
  3. Landing pages with minimalist design – designing landing pages with fairly simple design, easy to read content and one-click checkout process is a revolutionizing trend in the field of website designing. Selling online is more of smart work than the hard work and with the help of minimalist design pages, you save a lot of time and effort and designing costs, and are able to direct the attention of the users to a single most important point on the web page.
  4. Grand photo backgrounds – A lot of web designers have started following the trend of giving the website a large and significant background. This entices the online visitor and inspires them to remain engaged to the website for long, along with giving the website a complete and professional look (and what more can we really ask for?).
  5. Endless scrolling – Although the concept of endless or infinite scrolling has been around for quite some while, it is now that the concept is finally getting this much prominence and importance. Quite a simple design tweak, endless scrolling eliminates the need for pagination and has become really a crucial element in designing simple websites. Albeit the design trend may not be required for different websites, but if for the right ones, it works wonderfully well.
  6. Circular design elements – Lately, one can see a lot of websites based on circular designs. There are different circular shapes in the background, and the rest of the content is molded somehow to fit into the same. Circles are clean, neat and comply with varying dimensions quite perfectly. In order to revamp your website and give it a brand new riveting look, you should really consider circular designs elements.
  7. A wow-some user experience with detailed illustrations – Although the trends in the world of website designing keep on changing, there is this one rule of thumb that shall never fade out. It basically sums up the utility and purpose of websites – to give something valuable to the users and to be able to sustain their attention. And one can easily achieve the both with the help of detailed illustrations. With having illustrations on your website, one can easily keep a user hooked to the website, and provide them with a memorable experience. However, you really need to do it right, otherwise the website may just become painfully irritating and tedious.

Guest post by Emma Alice

In-House SEOSocial Media marketing is considered to be one of the best techniques in any internet marketing campaign.

Each and every website, no matter what’s the size or industry wants to publicize and promote it via Social Media marketing campaign.

Social Marketing refers to an extensive marketing which definitely brings positive results.

It not gets finish by just creating a profile on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linked In.

At the same time it is important to perform actions or necessary activities on each of your account. And you must keep looking for better applications and ideas to gain more visitors and followers.

Since it brings many visitors, most of the companies prefer to outsource their social media marketing services or hire Social media marketing services professionals in order to save their websites.

Why To Outsource a Social Media Marketing Campaign

We all are aware of the fact that social networking sites can enhance the business of any organization. But promoting on Social media needs a good and a well planned strategy and a high degree of knowledge. So, here the big question arises- whether to outsource or not.

Let’s have a look on the pros and cons of both the options (outsourcing and not outsourcing.

Outsourcing

Hiring a company for social media marketing has its own merits. They will have a vast expertise and experience in this field. These companies know about the latest developments, new trends and implements the latest strategies to get positive results.

By outsourcing your social media marketing work to other experienced companies, you can sit back and can handle other business activities. By outsourcing SMM have following you can have the following benefits:

  1. The results of Social Media
    Marketing cannot be achieved in two or three days. It is a time
    consuming process and therefore requires greater time investment.The grater the time investment, the quicker will be the results.
    Naturally you can’t dedicate this much of time, therefore, it is
    better to hire a company and outsource your SMM campaign.
  1. It is not necessary that, if you
    are a business man then you will have strong writing skills. If your
    content is bad and your platform is strong, then it will not bring
    you results. Content is king, therefore it is necessary to focus
    on great content building activities, along with a stong presence on the largest social media platforms.
  1. It has been a short time while
    social media came in the market and it has expanded its wings in the
    online marketing. Most of the professionals have developed
    themselves in this field and is now having a great knowledge.
    Therefore outsourcing this work can save your time and bring
    effective results.
    • Weaknesses or cons

The biggest drawback is that the external professionals are not much familiar with your organization, which might result in poor performance. This weakness can be overcome by providing the in depth information to the external company and by
maintaining a clear flow of communication with social media
professionals.

Not Outsourcing or in house management

  • Strengths:

If you go for in house services, then it would have many benefits, like you would be having a thorough knowledge of all your products and services, so you can promote it
well and sound like you know what you’re talking about.

This will lead to more friends and visitors. Secondly, you would have unlimited content and resources, and you can share your content in real or actual time with audience.

  • Weaknesses:

There are also some of the weaknesses or cons of in-house management. It is difficult to maintain all the accounts as it takes more time especially if your staff members don’t have experience in handling social media pages.

Lack of knowledge and familiarity with the ever-changing structures or platforms can be a big risk and leads to ineffective results.

Summary

Both in house management and outsourcing have weaknesses and strengths. You would be best to look into it in more detail, to decide which of the two solutions will prove to be best and effective for you.

How To Make Money From Google Adsense On Your Blog

By RowanComments Off on How To Make Money From Google Adsense On Your Blog

How To Make Money From AdsenseIs it really possible to make a decent living from Google Adsense clicks on your blog? Well, maybe I’m not the right person to ask, because I’ve been working online for five years now, published thousands of articles here and there, and I’m still only making a few dollars a day.

I make most of my money from selling my services, and I don’t really concentrate on it, but it is nice to get a hundred and fifty every few months, and I’m sure it will pick up in the future.

I’m not saying it’s not possible to make good money through Google Adsense, I’ve heard of people doing it, but it takes a combination of luck, intense hard work, and a fantastic talent at SEO.

I will try to explain how I think you would go about building your way up to a good income through Google Adsense, for those who have a serious will to try and do it.

First of all, let’s look at why I’m not making much money. I write about internet marketing and social media marketing, niches saturated with content that I have to compete with on Google, and it doesn’t pay a lot per click, only about a dollar.

The title of this article has been written literally hundreds of thousands of times before by bloggers and article writers, because when they get stuck for an idea of something to write about, they write about that obvious thing, like I’m doing now.

To have a chance of making good money, you have to find something to write about that barely anyone has ever written about before, so that you can easily appear first on the first page of the Google search.

Doing Keyword Research

To work out whether there’s much competition, try typing in the keyword into Google, and have a look at how many results there are. Then, type it in in quotation marks. That will tell you how many pages mention that exact phrase.

You will also want to make sure that the phrase has a decent exact match monthly worldwide search volume.

You do this by looking on the Google keyword tool. You want to be sure to uncheck the broad match box, and check the exact match box, because that’s the results that really matter.

Look for a phrase that seems like it would have low competition, but that also has a few thousand exact match searches a month.

You want to choose a phrase that is someone looking to buy something, or looking for an answer to their question that a click on an ad might solve.

The goal is to choose a topic where the ads that automatically show up are an exact match to what the search query is.

For example, I’ve seen some great pages where I’ve searched for a free file converting software for flv to mp4, and I end up on a page which is mostly ads, for paid versions of that software.

Those pages probably make a fortune in Adsense clicks because people are searching for something, they end up on a page that gives them exactly what they were looking for, the only problem with that example, is most of the people will bounce off and continue looking for the free software.

There are millions of people making these pages to answer people’s questions, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t be a part of it.

A New Opportunity Opens Up

After the recent algorithm updates on Google, a lot of the pages that couldn’t be beaten in the past got punished badly because they have thousands of spam links pointed towards them.

In the past, this was the only way to get to the top of a search with lots of competition, and now it lands you on the hundredth page, and most of those sites will never recover from this slap.

This presents a huge opportunity for a new generation of internet marketers to take over those searches, so long as they know how to build quality links that really work.

You still do need some back links to a site to get it to rank, but it’s got more to do with the on-page content and how often you update the site with fresh content.

It’s best to make one blog, maybe two, and have it focused around one subject that you truly have an interest in, because you will need to write about it every day, or at least every other day.

You need a steady flow of high quality, long, original entertaining or compelling, engaging content that people will spend time reading and that they will want to share with their friends on social media.

Links from social media will play a hugely important role in rankings in the future. This is how people will get link weight these days. Google recognises that people very rarely link naturally from their blogs to another person’s site.

They recognise when people are building links for a link’s sake, and so have punished almost all of the link building practices which used to work.

For example, you don’t want to constantly build links from auto-approve article directories, directory sites, social bookmarking sites, blog comments, forum signatures, profiles, etc.

What Does Work In SEO Link Building?

That’s what they call spam, or links from link farms or content farms. There’s very little that does work, but you still get some benefit from writing a long high quality original article on Ezine, HubPages, Squidoo, Yahoo Contributor Network, eHow, Guardian, Examiner, Knoji, prlog.org, Blogger, Typepad, Wordpess.com, (especially on your own domain name) and maybe Triond.

Some of these sites may possibly work in reverse if you build links from them, it’s not entirely clear how the algorithms work when you build dozens and dozens of links in a link pyramid, but if you do it gradually over time from sites that have authority, and also link out to authority sites as sources in your articles (like Wikipedia, CNN), then that should be enough to rank you very well.

The only problem is, to justify doing all of that work, you have to choose a particular phrase that has tens of thousands of exact match searches a month for the home page, and those phrase always have big competition.

If you enjoy blogging, you may gradually build up your income by writing eight hours a day, and if you don’t like it, well nobody said a job was fun. It is possible to make a good living from blogging, even if you’re only monetizing with Adsense, so long as you know what you’re doing, and put in some serious hours.

In my opinion, you’re much better off trying to sign people up to an email list, or sell them a product through Pay Pal, or sell them an affiliate product. There are much better possibilities for monetizing a site than just Adsense, but I put it on my site because it does generate some income.
