Do You Have A Tribe?

Working online means many hours in isolation. We sit at our laptop or desktop working at our online business. Usually at home or a handy place like Starbucks. Getting work done requires concentration and blocking out chatter and other people.

We’re social animals by nature and staying in touch digitally isn’t 100% satisfying. Our digital friends are part of our tribe – or we’re part of a larger tribe together. But nothing beats face-to-face contact. Shared experiences bring great rewards.

We all benefit from association with the right people. Who are the right people? How do we meet them? How do they add dimension to our lives? What are the qualities of those you want to have in your circles?

Search Engine Strategies

seo canstockphoto5764453 Wonder why you don’t make more money online? Perhaps it has something to do with SEO. Your online earnings are determined by how easy it is to search and find your product/service offer.

Most likely your competitors pay attention to Search Engine Optimization. SEO is simply how to get more traffic directed to your offer by Google, Bing or some other search engine. More in this case means a higher ranking when a user searches using words associated with your product offer.

Search Basics

Let’s simplify SEO. The Internet is basically a method for connecting people with information. Search engines rapidly scan the Internet for information someone seeks.

They do this by sending bits of code called bots that look for what you seek. These bots crawl the web looking for data based on the keywords a person specifies in the search bar of a search engine.

Google is the #1 search engine in use. More than 1.1 billion people use Google each month. Compare that to Bing with 350 million average monthly users. Go to eBizMBA Rank for the list of the top 15 search engines in use today.

Online marketers do not have to know the mechanics of search engines. They just have to know how to use them to benefit a  business or campaign. We tend to make too much of technology making Internet what it is.  Some use that complexity to their advantage selling how-to programs.

A basic key to optimizing your site for search engines is selecting the best keywords associated with your offer. I use a great keyword tool Long Tail Pro. It is inexpensive, easy to learn how to use, and gives me a competitive advantage in some crowded product niches.

THE 12 HOTTEST TOOLS FOR CONTENT PROMOTION

Mktg montage Content is key to marketing your online business. No matter how you use the Internet for business marketing always comes into play. You simply have to market your online offerings. Even those with huge mailing lists advise those lists of new posts and product intros. Sharing with social media is a must, if you want to serve your niche tribes. Online marketing is more than advertising. It includes using all Internet media to bring your message to as wide an audience as possible.

That is no different from yesterday’s brix&stix businesses who used grandpa’s media effectively. The difference is today we have instant digital dissemination of our effort. So many of us are solo entrepreneurs and we rely heavily on software tools to get our marketing job done. The following excellent post by William Harris first appeared last week. I pass it along so  like me you can learn about key tools for promoting your content. You have to know the tools available and use them to promote your content. Most fail making money online simply because they do not know how to run an Internet business – these failures simply want to make money fast.

Get in the game to stay in the game.

6 Tips Boosting Email Campaigns

Mktg montage Email marketing demands special attention. It is not enough to compose your brillant copy and send it to your list expecting great results. Those results generally never materialize as deposits to our bank accounts.

Affiliate and other web marketers need to “keep the customer in mind”. Sure we know that and may even advise others to do so. Yet, too often the customer is ignored as we keep to a marketing schedule. I think it is often better to miss an artificial deadline writing better copy or including sales success ingredients in our messages.

Perhaps I’m too old school for some. But I believe what worked for Claude Hopkins back in the day works for us in the digital market place.

We only have to know the foundation of advertising and sales then translate that to our digit work place.

A basic rule is consistency – have all your product support elements consistent with each other. A campaign is coordinated. Use the same language, similar graphics, and common product benefit points. That’s SEO 101. Using  your email campaings effectively means that they reflect the style, feel, flow of product sites.

Considering you have done that there’s an effective tool creating even more return for your marketing effort. That’s using P.S. and P.P.S. in your email campaigns. Too few people mention that.
