Basic Internet Marketing Techniques – How to Increase Your Web Sites Visitors Easily

You really do not need to be an Internet marketing expert or ‘Guru’ to get a lot of people to your site. Once you figure out the basics all you have to do is come up with a plan on how you are going to do it. I have a few web sites that have earned thousands of dollars and I did not do anything extraordinary to promote them. Take a look at the following basic web site promotion techniques and take action and you will see an incredible increase in visitors to your web site.

Content – I am sure you have heard the saying ‘Content is King’ if you haven’t then you need to remember it. This is the truth, but it should be ‘Quality Content is King’. When you are building your web site it is very important to use only unique content. This means no duplicate content as the search engines frown upon it. Duplicate content is a phrase given to a page that has the exact same content as other pages on the Internet. Take some time to come up with good quality content that your visitors will find interesting and relevant. This will not only make your visitors happy and increase the chance of repeat visitors but it will also make the search engines happy. The content creation of your site should not be something that can be finished. It should be updated every chance you get.

Links – The quality of links on the Internet that are pointing to your site can make you or break you. A common misconception of many webmasters is that the more links that are pointing to your site the better off it is. Although this can be true it is important to always keep in mind quality is better than quantity. If you spend an hour to get a quality link pointing to your site it can be better then ten, twenty or even one hundred weak links. You should always set aside portion of your day or a day out of the week to strictly seek quality link partners. It is important to avoid the many link-building programs. Some may be useful but many are overused and worthless. Always remember if it seems to good to be true it probably is.

Article Marketing – This is arguably the best way you can market your web site. The reason it is so popular is because it provides one-way links to your sites via article directories and others that publish your article on their site. Another great advantage to article marketing is that you can submit articles for free to other sites and their visitors will read your article and if they like it they will follow through to your link in the signature block. There is controversy on whether or not submitting the same article the several sites is looked at as duplicate content. To be on the safe side I submit my articles to only a few well-known article directories and I get pretty good results doing so.

That’s it in a nutshell, create quality content for your site, build a strong linking campaign and submit quality articles. If you can abide by these basic web site marketing techniques you will see that your revenue rises every month. If your web site is brand new you may have to give it a few months before you see results. The main thing is to just stick with it and never give up. These techniques have been proven time and time again. Follow them and you will be successful in web site marketing and promotion.

New Home Based Business Idea – The Takeover is Happening

It is extremely imperative in this day and age when researching new home based business ideas that you look at all your options that are available. Society will teach and almost force you to look at the traditional ways of building a home based business.If you look at unconventional ways, you are almost seemed as an outcast. For those leaders that choose to be trailblazers they are willing to look foolish in the eyes of others. The conventional ideas of a home based business are child care services, carpet cleaning services, personal trainer, catering, photography, consulting, and many more.Please understand we need these types of businesses in our lives.However with so many corporate executives getting laid off, factory workers losing jobs left and right, and normal individuals flat out being told that their services are no longer needed the traditional way of building a home based business is too time consuming. Not only that but it doesn’t yield a profit as fast and requires a lot of time to get started. Not to mention searching for clients is a task all by itself.Corporate executives need to have their executive income replaced yesterday. The single parent needs food on the table a week ago. The factory worker that was laid off after 10+ years of loyal service is facing foreclosure now.Introducing a new home based business idea: Direct sales/ direct marketing companies. These companies are literally taking over. What is so appealing about this type of home based business?1. Thousands of dollars in upfront commissions on sales – those that were laid off can actually replace their income with a few sales a month.2. Training and support – you are never alone with building your business. You will be taught the RIGHT skills to actually make you money.3. Work from anywhere you have an internet connection and phone – time and location freedom, enough said.4. No bugging family members and friends – you can still maintain a healthy relationship with those you care about.5. Residual income – allows you to keep making money over and over again without doing the same work. You don’t get that in corporate America.6. Choose who you want to be on your team – you are the CEO, so you can be selective about who you work with so you can have a team that is positive.7. A system – provides leverage to the max. Teach people to follow the system, which will bring more duplication, which will make you and your team more money.8. Cheaper startup – you don’t have to go into debt to start your own home based business. Cost usually range from $400- $20,000. Get in where you can.These are only a few benefits. There is so much more that is available. That is why the takeover is happening. People are turning a blind eye to the negativity that once surrounded this industry and are embracing it as a new way of life. In this industry the simple way to become a top earner is to carbon copy what the top earners are doing. There are no secrets unlike corporate America.
