Promote special offers or limited time sales exclusively through email as a way of fostering excitement in your customers to be receiving your emails. This is an email marketing method that makes your subscribers feel like receiving your emails is beneficial to them, and will encourage them to get friends to sign up as well. Referral programs can be beneficial if you wish to increase the amount of readers that could become customers.

Email marketing is a great tool for selling your product, but only if you keep sales in mind. Every email you send should be focused on making your readers want to buy something from you. Each one should be informative on a new or existing product and announce current promotions.

You should ask your customers to opt-in and then confirm they wish to receive your newsletter. Although that may seem like overkill, it ensures that the individual truly wants your emails and reduces the likelihood that you will get in trouble for sending spam.

Your company’s branding should extend to the marketing you do through email. Design an email template that incorporates elements from your site. By using the same fonts and colors, and including your logo in all of your marketing materials, you will create a visibly unified message. This will cause your readers to instantly recognize your company.

Be certain that anyone you send messages to through email channels has given you permission to do so. Disregarding this can not only cost you your current customers, but also any future customers who correspond with this one. You may also find yourself blacklisted by some ISPs, making even bigger problems for the campaign and business.

Clearly posting an unsubscribe link is recommended. Don’t make it difficult to find. It is important that your customers feel in control and that they aren’t being forced into anything.

Make sure your email marketing strategy makes use of “smart persistence.” Having said that, you should ensure that this is with the correct customers. Otherwise, it won’t matter all that much. Persistence while targeting the wrong audience will simply waste your time and energy.

Don’t send emails that require images to present information. Most email clients today, especially web-based ones, will not properly display these images. If a person is reading your email in one of these clients, it can make your message look strange or even render it unreadable. The most important information needs to be in the email’s main text. If you must use images, be sure they have useful alt tags.

It is extremely important and cannot be stressed enough that the subscribers who get emails from you have given their full consent willingly. Harassing people with unwanted emails will not only get complaints raised against you, but you will see a plummet in your sales. Utilize the advice given here to avoid sending unwanted emails to people.

Developing a New Business Online – Trust is Everything

Developing a New Business Online – Trust is Everything
by Daniel D Lotts

If you think about it, trust is really key to most everything we do. They say the more we trust, the more ability we have to navigate the environment to reach our goals. It is like a give and take situation where the more you give the more you get in return.

Some examples of possible behavior in this regard would be the difference between suspicion and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. The former puts up barriers and defenses which may impede progress and actually become limitations, more than protecting us from what we suspect. It may well result in termination. The latter allows things to flow and develop as they will. If all goes well, there will be a successful transaction or exchange as a result.

With that said, nobody should just trust blindly in most cases. We need to create trust by for example doing research and having direct experience; and finding favorable results, we then start to trust that we are going in the right direction and therefore begin to have confidence in our actions and the process. We trust it.

When we decide to step ‘out of the box’ and create our own source of income we must trust our own judgment, but not until we really determine in our own minds that we CAN DO this. If it is feasible that we actually have enough resources to pull it off then we begin to believe it. Resources are tangible elements such as skills, experience, information, time and opportunity, in addition to actual money if any to invest.

However, intangible resources may even play a bigger role than any of the above, being substantial, like attitude (‘mindset’), maturity, discipline, and real desire to accomplish our goal; determination and willingness to work hard over time, possibly without seeing any proof or results for an extended period.

new business
new business

While we may be able to study our statistics and tracking to determine if we are on the right track, definite faith and trust are without a doubt, pre-requisite to starting any new venture. We just plain couldn’t and wouldn’t do anything different where we are ‘stepping out on a limb’ if we didn’t trust that it would be possible to succeed.

People might say ‘oh this is not for me, I need to know for sure that I am going to have the money by a certain date.’ In the job world, we have had a job offer and job description that includes the amount of money we can expect on what day each month. We likely know what our expenses are to live and how much money we need to make that happen. We could TRUST that if we kept our word and did our best that they would honor their promises, and we would have what we expect to earn by when.

Yet there are never any guarantees and I think a couple recessions in the USA have proven that anybody, regardless of education or expertise can suddenly find themselves without an income. If you are very fortunate you have a little wiggle room in your severance package/unemployment insurance so that you can survive while you find another source of income. This is really the ideal time to try to develop your own business.

However, it is a real concern that you do need to think of your survival first no matter what, so part of the plan to start a new business should take that into consideration. It may be that you will need to start saving money while you are still working to ensure you are not caught completely off-guard if they pull the rug out from underneath you.

If you find yourself ‘out on the street’ suddenly, then your first consideration should be to cover your expenses, as you will need to live while you are building your new business. You can support yourself by way of at least a part-time job or working temporary contracts as a consultant if you do not have severance pay and/or unemployment insurance. The point is to have a plan for all contingencies.

Bottom line – you have to trust or gamble – but make it less of a risk by being prepared and having a plan of action. It is much better to start something on your own when you are not in desperate circumstances.

Home Alone? Be Busy Working

Home Alone? Be Busy Working

by Daniel D Lotts

Looking at being home alone from a few perspectives, with and without a home business, a few things ring true either way. While being home is great and so far superior to commuting, it can get lonely.

My Banner

If you do not take regular ‘breathers’ to get out of the house or at the very least to do something besides your business, it can feel depressing and smothering, like “cabin fever,” no matter how much fun you are having with your home business. You need to refresh your browser!

At the same time, and in the same vein, you need to be able to stop working sometimes even though it is midnight, and you can’t go outside or go shopping to get away from it. You need to sleep and to rest and relax – If you need to make an appointment to schedule this with yourself, just do it.

Totally on the other hand, if you do stay home a lot anyway, why not do something productive with your home like make it generate money to help with its upkeep and to make it a better living environment for you. Your home, whether you own it or even if you rent an apartment, can be something that it would be very wise to monetize!

US Federal income tax-wise, there are benefits that you can get for running a business in your home. For example, you can deduct a percentage of all your housing costs – the space, utilities, equipment, communications, (Internet service, phone, etc.). These of course would also include direct business expenses like advertising, technical services, software, etc.). There are schedules you file with your regular itemized personal income taxes (form 1040), that are for use of your home for business, *(form 8829) and profit or loss from business (*schedule C); (and of course self-employment tax (*schedule SE).

You can file these for a certain number of years even if you do not make any money or any profit from your home business. However, if after that time you have not made any money then it would be considered a hobby and as such you wouldn’t be able to deduct any business expenses. But hey – why not have a hobby that you can earn possibly eventually earn a little money with!? Your hobby is money. So point is don’t give up on your home business even if you have to do without all the deductions.

You can also look at your hobby home biz as a learning tool and who knows what you might eventually develop if you keep it real low key; because especially if you work all day or whatever, you may have a problem looking at working again when you get home, working on your ‘days off,’ etc. Of course again that is not so much the case if you enjoy working and you love working from home. The problem might be how to stop!;)

Finding Your Home Business Niche – Be Focused and Flexible

Finding Your Home Business Niche – Be Focused and Flexible

by Daniel D Lotts

While it is important to have goals so that we can formulate a plan for starting a home business

-and to stay focused to achieve them, it is equally important to remain flexible. In other words, be willing to change your course if necessary. To be really creative we must be able to see beyond the ‘dotted line’.

My Banner

Therefore, it may be good to make your goals ‘generic’ – in other words not ‘make X number of dollars per month from XYZ’ but just ‘make X number dollars per month’ – that way if on your way to XYZ you find ABC to be more of a ‘natural’ for you, you won’t miss the opportunity because you are so focused that you have ‘blinders’ on.

You may find after some time in research and development of your home business

-that you really don’t like something that is part of your initial strategy – for example even that you don’t like marketing and sales, period. While any business you start is going to require you to sell it to somebody, you may determine that you just want that to be a means to an end, not the end game.

To explain further, you may love the Internet marketing industry but just not like the amount of work that is necessary to take the ‘massive’ action required to succeed. Not just that, but you don’t like the nature of the work either. Too tedious and time-consuming to do it yourself, and too expensive to use paid services to do it for you right now.

home business
home business

You have already determined that you can and will start a home business and will replace your income

-so that you can quit your gnarly job someday. You have an amount of money in mind that would cover things nicely for now (and of course could be increased as time goes on). So what else might you do that is online but not just marketing/advertising/sales?

Start by making an inventory.

Have one page for your skills and one for your interests. Part of both would include your actual experience whether in a job or hobby. Note what you really enjoyed about both. Do you see anything there that might point you in any direction as far as a service you could perform to earn an income online? Is there something that interests you and you like doing that could maybe use a tune up? For example, if you could take an online course from a community college or other organization to hone your skills in some area.

Take the key points that you find and do some further research as far as how you would go about setting up your home business and how you would promote it (here we go with advertising again) – but remember it’s a means to an end and does not envelope your entire life, it is just a necessary task among the ones that you do enjoy doing.

Once you decide on something you would like to do and can do, then it is time for more of a solid plan that includes a budget for materials and tools that would be necessary, so you will want to do some comparison shopping, etc. The key is to really know all the ins and outs and to facilitate all the various things that would be required to start a home business, or to find anything that could possibly be a ‘deal breaker’ that would prevent you from being able to follow your plan (and then you would just start all over and find something you CAN DO).

How Pay-Per-Click Services Can Help Boost Your Online Sales

How Pay-Per-Click Services Can Help Boost Your Online Sales

by Julia Rogers

One of the advantages of traditional advertising is that it’s simple. Companies can purchase air time on radio or television or ad space in newspapers or in magazines. But the Internet is different. There are many ways a business can get their message across online, from articles to emails to search engine results pages. But arguably the most effective form of virtual marketing is pay-per-click services.

What is pay-per-click services?

Also called cost per click, these charges are assessed by the publisher of your online ads each time they are clicked. These banner ads typically appear on websites or on search engine results pages. For the major search engines, advertisers often have to bid on relevant key word phrases that will make your ad appear on the screen when they are searched. For example, let’s say you bid on the keyword phrase “cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale,” your banner ad will be featured on the search results page each time that keyword phrase is typed into a search engine.

Why it works

Pay-per-click services may be more expensive than other forms of Internet advertising, but it is also more expeditious. Using search engine optimization (SEO), which is a series of strategies and tricks designed to improve your website search ranking, can take weeks even months. Advertisers have to develop original content such as blogs and articles and either link them or post them directly on their websites. But even after all that hard work, there is no guarantee that traffic to their website will greatly increase. With pay-per-click services, on the other hand, traffic should increase almost immediately.

How much does it cost?

The growing popularity of search engines has caused substantial price increases for banner ads in recent years. A search engine like Google, for example, charges an average of $0.84 per click, which is more than twice as expensive as it was in 2005. Of course, Google is the most visited website on the Internet, so advertisers are gaining access to a huge pool of potential customers when they buy banner ads on it.

pay-per-click service
pay-per-click service

Are they worth it?

Because it is a relatively new form of advertising, there are many different ways to measure the true effectiveness of these ads. Some companies look at the click through rate, which is the percentage of users who visit their sites after viewing banner ads. Others give more weight to the conversion rate, which tells them how many of those people who clicked through and visited their website actually bought something.

When we consider the latter, it is clear that a PPC agency can add value by increasing monthly sales, especially for companies that sell expensive items. The conversion rate currently stands at about 3.4 percent, which means about one in every thirty guests that clicked on your banner ad completed on online transaction. If you sell inexpensive items like t-shirts, that conversion rate may not result in significant increases in revenues. But if you sell designer handbags, well, that’s a different story.

When to use them

Most successful companies have multifaceted advertising campaigns that incorporate traditional and modern marketing methods. On the Internet, this means buying banner ads and utilizing search engine optimization to full effect. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. As we mentioned, pay-per-click helps you hit the ground running because banner ads reach audiences immediately after they’re purchased. This fact alone can be of enormous benefit to a new business that wants to establish an online presence as soon as possible. Banner ads can also help spread the word about time-sensitive material, such as blowout sale or the introduction or a new product.

When used properly, pay-per-click services are one of the most effective forms of advertising on the Internet.

Top 10 Tips for Finding Best SEO Service Provider

Top 10 Tips for Finding Best SEO Service Provider

by Christopher Visser

An online search using any of the search engines will reveal thousands of SEO Service Providers and experts – many of them self-styled with zero knowledge and experience. How then does one separate the men from the boys? Here are 10 tips to help you find the best SEO Service Provider.

1. Look for the client list

– an SEO service provider with no client list is one who has no experience.

2. Check Client Website Status

– If client list has been provided, do an online search for products sold by each of the clients. The client’s website should be within the first 5 pages of search results if not on page one or better still, at the very top. Results on page 5 onwards just don’t qualify. Most people find what they want within the first 5 pages therefore links to websites that are displayed beyond the fifth page are irrelevant.

3. Thousand site submission

– Beware of claims about submitting your website to a few hundred or even a few thousand search engines. There are only three search engines that matter – Google.com, Bling.com and Yahoo.com Apart from these, there are a few regionally relevant search engines. All put together, anyone claiming to submit to more than 10 search engines is just fooling you. Why pay for dubious SEO Services?

4. Don’t pay for one night stands

– There is an abundance of SEO Service providers who will promise to boost your website Online Marketing Orlando. They are however silent on anything thereafter. True SEO Service is never a onetime affair. Unless the effort is ongoing, any website that received a single boost will soon start slipping the ranks and vanish into oblivion. Is that what you wish to pay for?

5. The Preferred Search Engine

– Your website statistics will reveal the search engine that your customers use the most often. Correlate this information with SEO Provider’s experience. If your customers seem to prefer Yahoo there is no point in securing top SEO rank in Bling.com or Google.com. It would simply be a waste of resources.

6. The Methodology Counts

– Is the v service provider clear on the methodology they are going to use to boost your online presence? Any dubious technique will sooner or later be caught by the search engines, and they are pretty quick at penalising defaulting sites. A penalty by the search engine usually means removing the offending website from the search engine results.

7. Type of SEO Service

– Unless you need a quick boost for seasonal sales, organic SEO is the way to go. Organic SEO is long-lasting and provides better value for money.

8. Words count

– An Digital Marketing Agency Orlando service provider also works with the content of the client’s website. Check out their previous client list and visit a few of the websites. Is the language and grammar acceptable? Is there adequate product description, etc., these are things that any good SEO service provider is supposed to look into.

9. Navigation

– Your clients need to be able to navigate through your website and quickly locate the products or services they need. A good SEO service provider is also required to recast the navigation if required.

10. Site Design

– A gaudy site repulses customers. Unfortunately, a lot of owners with self-made sites think the world of their own sites. A good SEO service provider on the other hand, is expected to steer the client towards a better design.

4 Essential Marketing Tactics When Setting Up An Online Business

4 Essential Marketing Tactics When Setting Up An Online Business

by Jon Allo

If you are setting up an online business, your success will ultimately come down to your ability to get customers. If you have no customers, you’ll have no business. Marketing is the way that you get those customers and without it, your business is going struggle to survive. Marketing does not just just mean doing some advertising when you set up a website business. Advertising is just part of the marketing mix.

A Marketing Plan For Setting Up An Online Business.

Some people think that marketing and advertising is the same thing. As mentioned above, advertising is an element of marketing whether you’re setting up an online business or working on an established business. Advertising is a more passive activity and marketing is more active. When you place an ad it sits there and does its job, but marketing is about getting people to see those ads and everything else you do to promote your business.

1. Search Engine Optimization.

An important online marketing technique when setting up a web business is search engine optimization or SEO. This is the technique that search engines, such as Google, look for keywords within your website to deliver search results. Keywords are the words and phrases that somebody types into a search engine when they are looking for something on the Internet. SEO takes time to set up, but it also needs to be kept up to date on a regular basis. Search engines like fresh and relevant content, and when you’re setting up an online business you’ll have lots of new ideas and content that you can add to your website. Just remember to keep adding new content to your website on a regular basis.

2. Build A Customer List.

One of the best methods of marketing when setting up an online business is building an opt-in mailing list. This is when you get people to give you their email address so that you can market to them whenever you want. In exchange for a potential customer’s email address you should offer them something of value, like special deals, exclusive information or a free report or video of some kind.

Online Business

3. Marketing With Email.

It takes seven to twelve exposures to your message before people will take action. Effective email marketing is vitally important when setting up an online business because it allows you to build a relationship with the people on your email list. This way they start to recognize the value that you are sending to them and be more willing to buy from you. Remember that every message you send needs to have value. Whether you are providing information or selling something, it has to be of value to the person reading it.

4. Good Website Design.

When you have a well designed website, users do not know if they’re dealing with a global company or a one-person operation. And this is good news when you’re setting up an online business because it means that your website can compete alongside the big organisations. Keep your website navigation simple and remember to clearly outline the benefits of your products and services on your homepage.

Blogging the Revolution: Social and Political Expression

Blogging the Revolution: Social and Political Expression

by Kaelyn Kelly-Colon

In an era where we are becoming more aware than ever of government cover-ups, spying plans, and widespread sociopolitical injustice, social media sites are of great and unparalleled importance. The awareness they offer us is not something we are comfortable with, because witnessing the horrors of modern history unfolding is a terribly difficult thing to experience secondhand, let alone firsthand. Still, how many of us watched revolutions internationally unfolding through our social media dashboards in just the past two years? Social and political expression through the web is necessary if we are to guard against tyranny, genocide, and injustice at home and around the world. Social media outlets have proven to be the stage through which these stories are exposed, and they remain a testament to some of the most important events of this century.

blogging

In many oppressive situations, communications between the people and the outside world are cut off by the government in order to prevent the international community from seeing what human rights atrocities are being committed. Creativity is incredibly valuable here, as protestors and activists find ways to get around these filters and access social media outlets to let the world know what’s going on. There’s a note of comedy to the whole experience, too – how many of us have joked about video hosting sites being used exclusively for videos of cats, or of text-based blogging platforms content being mostly about mundane, everyday things that no one wants to read about? Our sense of humor certainly doesn’t prevent us from noticing the ways in which these supposedly small and unimportant blogging sites have become vital to people all around the world. The revolutionary social discussion that is possible because of their existence is astonishing.

If you have a passion for justice and the authenticity that journalism can offer when everyday people from all around the world take out their phones and log in, there is certainly a place for you in the ever-evolving and improving social media marketplace. Sometimes, the battles we fight in the Western world pale in comparison to those of other nations, but being on the front lines protesting, sharing, and learning from one another is still incredibly important to improving our continued existence on this planet. Social and political expression is a luxury for many of us, and yet, we don’t engage it as often as we should. Let’s learn something from the young activists and radicals across the globe, risking their lives to send a 140-character message to us, letting us know what’s happening on the international stage just outside of our view. We have all the tools necessary to take those lessons and honor them in the development of our own societies.

Why Set Up Your Own Blog If You Have An Online Business?

Why Set Up Your Own Blog If You Have An Online Business?

by Jon Allo

When you set up your own blog it can be one of your most powerful marketing assets if you stick to the subjects your prospects and customers find interesting. Blogs play a key role in educating prospects so that they become future customers. Many of your most qualified leads, whether you know who they are or not, will read your blog at some time or another.

Also, when you set up your own blog, it will improve your organic search engine results as you add new pages to your website and encourage inbound links.

Secrets to a Successful Blog.

One of the main secrets on how to create a successful blog is to post on a frequent basis. If you do not write and publish blog posts regularly, you will not get much traffic, and people will not come back after reading something from you once. Posting on a regular basis also keeps your website content material fresh, and search engines like fresh content. The more often you post, the more often the search engine spiders will check out your website.

When you set up your own blog you have to write content that people will be interested in reading, and that is connected to your industry or niche. If you have a blog about, say, surfing, the majority of your blog most should be related to surfing.

Blog
Blog

Blogs are great for people who sell services. If you are a graphic designer or writer, when you set up your own blog it is a good way to keep in touch with your clients. You can offer updates on your schedule and availability, current prices and special offers. You can also post samples of your latest work. If you have a number of clients subscribe to your RSS feed, you’ll be able to keep in contact with them, so they’ll order from you more often.

How To Create A Successful Blog.

People also tend to follow blogs more carefully than websites. Don’t set up your own blog with the intention of letting it sit dormant and think that it will do all the work for you.
