9 Free Tools I Cannot Do Without

There’s nothing quite like getting something you want, need, or can make good use of. That’s especially true when the item is free, absolutely free.

I mean no out-of-pocket cost. Nada bucks. It costs you nothing. That’s free. You don’t have to sit through a boring, lengthy webinar. Or give up your email address and go through numerous up-sell pages. Free is best when you go to a website and get the goods.

Well, here’s my gift to you today. These free tools serve me well. They are useful and I use them often. You can upgrade to paid versions if you wish. I’ve done that when absolutely necessary. Otherwise I go with the free version. Click on the name and go directly to the web site.

EASY TRAINING TO INCREASE SALES REVENUE

 

It’s easy to get your sales people beyond product bullet points.  Here’s a simple method I used when Director of Marketing and Sales at a networking division of a major aerospace company.

When creating a telemarketing center with out call people very skilled in selling by phone we quickly learned, the sales prompt sheets did not cover information the customer wanted.  Many businesses fall prey to this trap.  That is telling the customer what we think is important rather than share what the customer wants to know.

We solved the problem and elevated in house-sales morale by having staff record questions they could not answer.  Our engineering Read the rest of this entry

How to Create Content That Works

 

I read an article about creating content ‘people will love’. It’s great if people love your content. But I’d rather have content that works.
 
Content that works for me is content that achieves its purpose. Make sure you understand what you want to achieve with your content. What’s the purpose?
 
Does the content match your ideal customer’s expectations? Are you solving a problem? Does the content solidify your relationship with your ideal customer?
 
I once managed marketing for a technology company driven by an engineering mindset. We tried to sell whatever the engineers dreamed up. Rather than making what we could sell the company tried to sell what it could make.
 
One product was exceptional and spectacular.  We launched at a major trade show and prospective users jammed our booth. Everyone immediately  understood the product and wanted to play with it. They loved it.
 
Very few bought it. It didn’t solve a real problem. The investment in creating and launching a very innovative product was a total waste.

***********************

When you start blogging it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement and visions of building a massive readership and finally being able to quit your day job. It’s easy to get hyped on the idea of blogging, only to get discouraged when you don’t see results immediately.

Blogging isn’t for those seeking overnight results. However, if it’s been six months or longer and you feel like your blog is dead, then there could be a few things you’re doing wrong.

Below we dive into a few large-scale reasons your blog is failing and give a few recommendations for how you can fix these issues.

We won’t be talking about things like adding social media buttons or images to your posts. We’re talking about the bigger stuff.

 

  1. You’re Writing About The Wrong Things

When it comes to creating a blog people actually want to read, you need to write about things that make people care. For instance, if you’re using your blog as a personal journal and aren’t providing any grounded real-world wisdom, then there’s no reason for readers to stick around.

Who is your target audience? And how can you serve them with your content?

Get out of your own head and into the needs of your audience. The more you can write about things your audience cares about the more they’ll read and share your content.

’10 Ways’ to Profit From Your Blog Posts …

 

I own and operate many niche marketing web sites. Some may be considered blogs. Others are pure eCommerce sites.

JoeAro.com is my primary ‘how to do business on the Internet’ blog. This is where I post information helpful to others wanting to earn money online.

A key money-making blog tool is banner ads. Click on the ads on this page and you go to an offer. As an affiliate marketer I then get a commission on  your purchase from the seller. You pay no more using my link. I just earn money if you do.

Many people start blogs to express views on one subject or another. Most blogs start with great enthusiasm and then die out from misuse. Blogs with at least one post a month are in the minority.

How often you post to your blog is up to you. Some folks post daily or even many times a day. Usually those posts are short. I post when I have something of value to put online.

Many Internet money-makers post very frequently to private Facebook groups. That keeps their fans tuned in. These folks are usually among the top Internet earners. Their video posts to social media are shared widely.

I use video in support of my online businesses. I have several Facebook fan pages, also. Along with Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Tumbler, and other social sites I, too, have several YouTube channels. Now, you won’t find most of those accounts under my name. They are usually found via niche market identifications.

If you have a blog and want to get started making money from it here’s a very good article that hit my inbox this morning.  I’d give you the author, but he/she was not identified, as it came from a 3rd party.

Read on and enjoy.
