Getting This Blog Back In Action

It’s been a couple of months since I posted here on this blog (apart from my recent post) because I’ve been concentrating my efforts at building out my other blog, Email List Building Techniques, which focuses on…you guessed it…email marketing and list building!

Both of these are intricate ingredients in the affiliate marketing game and every truly successful marketer has their own email list.

Yes, they can be a pain to set up, which is why I avoided doing it myself for years.

Yes, they do cost money to run – you have to subscribe to an autoresponder service to be able to store your subscribers’ email addresses and to …

My recommendation would be WordPress. Being the most popular blogging platform and CMS on the planet means that it also has the biggest number of addons available.

There are tens of thousands of themes – free and paid – to make your blog look the way you want. And there are tens of thousands (possibly hundreds of thousands) of plugins that allow you to extend the functionality of your blog.

The downside if it being the most popular platform is that WordPress sites are also the most targeted by hackers. Something like 30,000 sites are hacked each day.

So knowing how to make your blogs secure, or having someone build a secure

Affiliate Marketing

While it’s a good idea to have your own website when doing affiliate marketing, you don’t need to have one. But being a blogger means that you do have a website where you post regularly. That may be one you own, or it may be a site on one of the free blogging platforms out there. If you’re not posting content regularly somewhere, then you’re not really a blogger.

That said, you can always just join affiliate programs and promote the raw affiliate links they give you.

This isn’t the best idea though for these reasons:

  1. Some platforms (like Facebook and Instagram) will routinely block you from posting affiliate links.
  2. Some paid

ArticleBuilder Special Offer

ArticleBuilder, is a time-tested push-button content creator, that has been publishing good quality auto-generated articles that have ranked in Google for over 5 years now.

I use it to create content on my Tier 2 sites (sites that link to my money sites) and Tier 3 sites (sites that link to my Tier 2 sites). It can be set up to auto-post content to my sites on my schedule.

The tool can also spin multiple articles together into a single spintax article that can be used to create a multitude of unique articles. I do this to create articles to use with SyndBuddy (which I reviewed here)  so that …

SBI (Site Build It) is much more than just another website creation tool. Behind it lie some really valuable tools that make it easy to identify what content you should be adding to your site, along with tools for getting your site noticed by both the search engines and real visitors.

SBI is about building a viable online business. Other website builders leave you high and dry once your website is built. How do you drive traffic? Engage visitors through social media? Promote your site? These are where SBI goes above and beyond (check out the tools you get here).

No, it’s not the cheapest website builder tool …

One of the things I’m asked quite often by my customers is if I build any sites with WordPress (I have a few products that are not WordPress-related so my customers wouldn’t necessarily know about my blogs).

Well, this blog is built with WordPress. As are many of my other sites. Though not all my sites are built on WordPress.

For someone not familiar with WordPress, building a site with it can be a daunting prospect. There’s quite a bit to learn. And WordPress doesn’t have any security built in, so those new to it won’t be aware that tweaks and plugins have to be added to make a blog less prone …

I’ve had a number of my WordPress blogs get hacked over the last year so I’ve learned the hard way how to repair a hacked blog and how to secure my blogs against future attacks. And now I’ve put what I’ve learned into my new PDF report: Repairing a Hacked WordPress Blog.

The report is only $5. I wish I’d had info like this when I found my blogs were hacked – it would have saved me a huge amount of time. I’ve heard that it can cost $100 to get a pro to clean up your blog though I never used such a service myself.…

One way you can improve your organic search results is to use pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. There are two ways to go here: either do it yourself or outsource to a pay per click management service.

Going It Alone With PPC

With this option, you bid on keywords in a PPC engine (like Google Adwords) and create ad campaigns to advertise your wares. The higher you bid for a keyword, the higher your ad will appear on searches for that keyword. You only get charged when someone actually clicks on your ad (paid per click) rather than when your ad is displayed. For this reason, bidding for PPC keywords can be a very …

Bring The Fresh isn’t a very good name for a product as it doesn’t convey anything about what the product is. It’s closed now anyway. You could be forgiven for thinking it had something to do with fruit given the “Fresh” reference. In fact it has nothing to do with food, freshly washed clothes or anything like that. In fact it’s a course on how to build successful, profitable blogs for those who want want to earn money in the Internet Marketing arena.

Despite it’s lousy name, you can’t judge a book by its cover, so what does BTF (as I’ll now refer to it) have to offer?
