Why Is There So Much Work Involved In Internet Marketing?

Comments Off on Why Is There So Much Work Involved In Internet Marketing?

Internet marketing workThis post aims to explain what it takes to run a website, rank it on the search engines, and get customers.

It will also explain all the different methods of getting traffic, and why it takes so much work to do it all.

Nothing online is easy, or it requires as much work combined with knowledge as any other job.

I work fairly hard, and I have to, to maintain multiple sites including sites I run for clients, as well as doing this and that and everything as work comes in.

How To Build Traffic To Your Site

Getting back to how you make money online, you need traffic. Some business models rely on building an email list, and signing people up to get some amazing offer and then continuing to sell to them for years through emails.

This can be great if you can do it well, but often people don’t know how to do it well, and they spend too much money sending traffic to their squeeze page to make the money back from the back end (the emailing side) of the list.

I don’t have a list myself, and it’s not that I don’t recommend that you get one, it is a very good way to hold onto traffic if you know how to use it. There’s just something I find slightly distasteful about it, for this reason.

Sometimes people add emails to their auto-responder selling Clickbank products and Aweber or Warrior Special Offer affiliate links, Amazon links, without really knowing anything about the products they’re promoting.

After a while of this sort of treatment, many people unsubscribe because they’re not getting value. You have to keep your list interested, and give them a reason to keep looking at your emails.

I tend to use social media as a replacement for email marketing, because I can get instant traffic from a variety of places like my Facebook pages, my Twitter accounts, Google Plus groups, Linked In groups, Yahoo groups, etc.

But generally, I write blog posts like this and get found in Google searches for some random phrase or another, and that’s what brings in the new customers, and there’s enough of them and enough work to do on anyone’s internet marketing or social media marketing campaign for me to get paid.

Assuming you are a new customer, let me explain why you should hire me to help you with what you’re doing, which I assume is some sort of internet marketing.

Why You Should Hire Me To Help You

The first thing I’ll probably do if you ask me to help you is take a look at your site, do some keyword research, suggest building back links from certain places, or writing longer blog posts more regularly and other on-page SEO tips.

Then I’ll help you make a nice looking Facebook page with lots of likes, aimed at a keyword search, or at your company name or your actual name if people are looking for you by name in a decent number per month.

It’s actually easier to rank a Facebook page on Google than it is to rank a regular website, so if you’re having trouble ranking your website, it might help to divert traffic from a Facebook page or You Tube video that is ranking for the same keyword, or a lower competition one.

If you have the money I can build back links that work, which are long original articles published on only the highest authority sites also linking out to authority source sites in the text and arranged in a link pyramid.

It does cost money to have an English speaking writer do quality work, and you don’t want to produce spam, as Google may punish lower quality pages through quality checkers just because the pages didn’t really have anything to say, or was written poorly.

I can easily get you likes and followers as well, not fake ones, but real random likes from a social swapping site. For Facebook, likes will help you rank your Facebook page on Google, and in a Facebook search, and of course the Facebook page requires back link building as well if you want it to rank.

For Twitter, getting thousands of real random country-targeted followers will get you traffic at the push of a button. It’s a no-brainer if your site has a widespread appeal and you’re willing to put in the time to tweet.

One of my services is social sharing, so you can test out what it’s like to have one of these huge accounts, my largest one has 30,000 followers, and I have four accounts at the moment.

I have so many because it works great, or at least you get multiple clicks on every link you tweet due to the huge numbers following.

I can also get other random people to tweet your message on their accounts, or share your site on Facebook, but if you find that works, it’s worth the investment of getting the followers for yourself, for about five cents each give or take.

It doesn’t work the same way to have random followers as it does to have targeted followers, but then it is very hard to be famous enough or important enough to get thousands of people to follow you naturally, or through any other method.

So without going into everything else I’ve learned over the past five years of internet marketing, it does take a lot of work, a lot of skill. I sell my services doing the things I can do which I’ve found work for me.

You could use some help whether you are a beginner or an advanced internet marketer, so get in contact with me at rowan@professionalsocialpromotion.com and ask me to take a look at what you’ve been doing, and give you some advice, coaching and help doing the work that needs to be done at a fair price.

 

Does SEO Even Work Anymore?

Comments Off on Does SEO Even Work Anymore?

Many people are starting to wonder if SEO even works anymore, as many of the traditional back link building techniques like article syndication, social bookmarking, blog commenting and forum posting aren’t as effective as they were even a few months ago.

The basic idea is, that Google is no longer placing much emphasis on back links for determining the ranking of a site unless they are authority, relevant, quality links.

Why did Google make this change to their algorithms? It’s simple, their search results were getting clogged up with spam crap that was only made to function as a back link, and so they have punished a lot of content farms, where the majority of content was only written for the purpose of making an SEO back link.

What does this mean for people trying to get on the first page of Google? Well, you have to try a bit harder to make quality back links, or you have to make quality content.

What it also means, is that nobody really knows what it means, and I could give you advice that could be out of date within a few months.

Does SEO Still Work?

Basically, you are better off focusing on on-page optimization, and writing long pages full of relevant, interesting text.

If you make a page that has quality information, such as a list of resources, you may get people linking to it because it’s good.

This is what Google wants to see, but more importantly, they want to see that it looks natural, and doesn’t look like you did it yourself.

I find that one of the most important factors in ranking is the amount you publish on your site, and that’s why I am writing this blog post now.

I get most of my traffic from social promotion on sites like Twitter, so for me, Google is a secondary concern, or I’m not all that worried about it right now, but I figure if I keep writing quality content, and getting on the first page of specific searches, I will gradually build up my traffic from them.

I’m not sure if this is accurate, but my Counterize traffic stats say that SEO is the third highest referring keyword to this site, so I guess that means I’m somewhere in that search, which is not bad, considering I didn’t try very hard to get that.

As I said before, I get thousands upon thousands of hits from Twitter, and if you want to buy some cheap traffic from social promotion, get in contact via the home page, or sign up to the newsletter to get free internet marketing training, so you can do what I do yourself.

I don’t really know how SEO works anymore, if I do, then I just told you as much as I know, which isn’t much. Anyone who says they know more than that, may be pulling your leg.

SEO is not the same as it used to be, and social signals are more important.
