Make Sense Out of Blogging

Posted on : 05-11-2016 | By : stargaterich | In : Internet_Marketing



It’s been almost two years since I last updated anything on this blog. I can’t believe I actually some sort of left it become a dead blog. Well, I’ve to admit somewhat or rather somehow down the line, I was sidetracked into other things in life. By no means it implies I have given up on Internet Marketing. On the contrary, I am more than inclined to believe that moving ahead into 2017, it becomes more imperative and makes even more sense for people seeking income security to consider Internet Marketing or any online business as viable alternatives.

RSS, which stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’ is a communication means by which many web sites used to keep their readers updated on the availability of new information published and posted on their sites. A feed is a communication channel as well as the medium where information is formatted according to specific format (for e.g. RSS format or Atom ). One of the best ways to promote your website is by submitting your site feed to major online portal such as Yahoo RSS Feed.

A reader can subscribe to a site feed using what is called the RSS reader. There are many different RSS readers which you can use to access a site feed. For instance, try to subscribe to this website feed; you will notice on the upper right hand corner of the feed there is a ‘Subscribe Now’ section that display a number of feed readers which you can use to subscribe to my feed.

The chances of your message (which includes subtle sales pitch) getting across to the readers and subscribers is much higher compare to those involving standard email marketing delivery system.

Should You Consider Autoblogging?

Posted on : 24-06-2011 | By : stargaterich | In : Internet_Marketing

Tags: , , , , , ,


I am not an enthusiasts and certainly not an advocate of autoblogging but I do think automated blogging strategy has its place in the Internet marketing world.  Do check out my thoughts on autoblogging and related topics  on autoblogging with blogger as well as my review of Autoblog Samurai.

You don’t have to risk your websites being penalize by Google for implementing autoblogging because so long as you don’t spam and give what Google wants you should be fine . The simplest method to avoid Google slap is by including the link to the source of the article that you extract and publish on your website.  Do make sure you do not have any duplicate contents in any of your web pages.

To be on the safe side, do not pin all your online income solely on autoblogs.  One caveat regarding blogger blogs. If you are using Google account to create autoblogs, try to limit the number of  autoblogs created on the same PC to five or less.

There are observations and feedback from  autoblogging community that Google alert is raised on multiple blogs created using one account or using the same computer IP  address. It may or may not be true but why take the risk?  Try to create multiple blogger blogs using different PC.

In summary you have got nothing much to lose by automating some of your niche blog content posting. Do so judiciously and with moderate amount of extract contents intermix with unique contents.  Always remember to include the link to the original source of the article that you publish in your autoblog.

If you are thinking of making money with your blog then you may wonder how best to go about it. Lot of people don’t feel comfortable to ask for sales in their blog but that is exactly what you should do if you wish to monetize your blog. It is easy to sell product through your blog if you know how to do it. You don’t need to do hard selling because such technique won’t work with Internet marketing and any online business.

Can you sell a product online if you hate selling or you don’t think you are cut out to be sales person? The answer is of course you can!. Have it ever occur to you that we do selling all the time? Say for instance, you watched a movie and you like it. Someone you know talks about going for a show and you tell them the movie that you watched recently, how interesting the plot and so and so. That’s is in fact selling!.

Selling becomes hard, really hard if you attempt to sell someone a product that he or she has no need for at the present moment. For instance, what are the chances of selling a hair comb to a guy who is completely bald? The days of shouting and screaming at the top of your voice to try get customers to buy your product is over. What you should be doing is to get qualified customers or targeted prospects to approach you and your task is to promote a product or service that will help customer address their wants or needs.

Don’t go around chasing after customers. Let the customer come to you!. It sounds weird but this is what set the successful online business entrepreneurs and Internet marketers from the majority of those who struggle to keep their business afloat. It is much easier for you to promote a product to someone who don’t need anymore convincing words and who is in the buying mood.

You don’t need to do a lot of selling if your customer already qualified themselves in the sense that they need such a product to address their wants or needs. Your job as a Internet Marketer is try to match the best product or service that will meet the customer requirements. Sometime a customer may not even know for sure what they want specifically so you have to help them by explaining the values and benefits of your product.

Half the battle is won if you are able to get qualified customers to visit your blog or website. Thus the key factor is not so much about selling but rather how to promote your website or blog so that the right customer can find you. This is where search engine optimization is so important. You need to get your website to be rank as high as possible by the search engines. Of course you can also consider using paid traffic such as Pay Per Click (PPC) to get your website rank highly as fast as possible.

In summary, making money from blogging is not hard even if you hate selling. Qualified customers will buy from you if you can promote your product or service in such a way that they can see the benefits and values that directly address their problems. You should post regularly and over time your blog will earn credibility and the customer will consider you an expert in your niche.

You don’t need to do any hard selling once you have establish an authoritative blog in your niche market. You can monetize your blog without doing any hard selling. Of course, you should try to master the art of persuasive soft selling as well as being able to write effective sales copy letter.
