BLOGS! What They Are… And WHY They’re Becoming A POWER TOOL For Internet Marketers

Posted in Internet Marketing at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

BLOGS! What a crazy name for the “NEWEST” Internet
marketing trend to hit the Internet.

But, I like it.

It makes this new form of communication kind of mysterious
in a way, though, BLOGS have been around for quite some
time and only recently have been recognized as a VERY
valuable asset to Internet marketers.

Recently, I was visiting some Internet marketing related
Forums and noticed many of the threads having similar
“Subjects” saying… “What the heck are BLOGS?”

So, I did a little research and this is what I came up with
since I was Very curious myself.

I think it’s best that I clearly define to You exactly what
a “BLOG” is so that as I go through this article with you,
you’ll have a clear picture in your head of what a Blog IS
and so there won’t be any confusion.

A “BLOG”(A.K.A. Web Log) by definition is:

A combination of online diary and/or guestbook. You sign up
for a blogger account and then you enter the information
You want on your Website. Then you can set it so that only
you can place entries on it or so that anyone can. Then you
can either keep a private journal or you can have a place
where your readers can get together and place entries to
each other or to you.

So… there you have it in a nut shell.

To simplify it even more let’s just say BLOGS are a place
to go and post your personal thoughts that you can share
with your subscribers and/or readership and receive
feedback.

Now, for the purpose of this article, now that you know the
true definition of a “Blog”, I’m going to share with you
some reasons WHY they’re becoming a widely recognized
“POWER TOOL” for Internet marketers around the world.

So, with that said, lets go to Reason #1.

Reason #1. Great way to stay in touch with your subscribers.

Blogs are a great way to stay in touch with your
subscribers and/or readership and builds regular readership
Traffic to your little community where you can interact
with them.

It also helps build rapport, which in turn, will help
develop that TRUST in You, Your Products and/or Services
that You recommend.

Reason #2. It’s a great way to get “Feedback”.

Blogs are a great way to get Feedback from your
subscribers/customers simply because they have the ability
to leave comments on each “Post” you make which will then
help you find what it is they’re looking for making YOU
look like a “Hero” in there eye’s and putting $Money$ in
your pocket.

Reason #3. Can be managed by ONE individual.

Blogs require NO “HTML” experience, making it easy for
ANYONE to get started.

Most “Blog” communities online use what is called a
“WYSIWYG” HTML editor.

Did I lose you there with the “WYSIWYG” abbreviation. That
simply stands for… “What You See Is What You Get”.

It’s one of the easiest HTML editors to use, making it easy
for You to get started right away.

Reason #4. Your able to list your “Main” website details.

When you sign up for your Blogger account you’re given an
area to set-up your “Personal Profile” where your able to
list your Main website and URL, plus, any other personal
information you wish to share that will be displayed on
your Blog.

Reason #5. A great way to publish “Information”.

This is probably ONE of the Biggest benefits to Blogs
because you have the ability to post informative
information in the form of “Articles and/or Reviews” for
your subscribers and/or readership which will make you look
like an Expert on the subject and giving you INSTANT
credibility in the eye’s of your reader.

Reason #6. You get your own URL.

That’s right, you get your own URL you can use in all your
promotions and/or on your personal website if you have one.

This feature is great, especially for people just starting
out and don’t have there own website up and running yet.

Here’s my Blog for you to take a look at.

It’s called… The Internet Wonders Blog.
http://theiwe.blogspot.com

Reason #7. Search Engines love them.

Search Engines love Blogs because they are so “Content
Rich” and are always being updated on a Daily to Weekly
basis.

When you compare a regular static website, which might be
updated on a monthly basis, to a Blog, which is updated on
a Daily to Weekly basis with NEW content, you’ll gain favor
with the search engines with your Blog.

The S.E. “Spiders” will then gladly stop by to munch down
on whatever NEW content you posted and Index your website
more often since that is what Search Engines love and are
constantly looking for.

Reason #8. The ability to use RSS with Blogs.

A powerful feature about Blogs is the use of RSS (Really
Simple Syndication) that allows you to Instantly send your
Blog highlights to your readership upon publication which
will keep your reader up to speed on your business and your
Products and/or Services.

Not only that, RSS also gives your Blog more exposure to a
wider audience of subscribers building a bigger readership
in less time.

By simply adding an human element to your business through
the use of a “Blog”, IS a great way to build rapport and
gain the trust of your subscribers and/or readership, which
in turn, will turn them into buying “Customers”.

Well, there you have it, “BLOGS! What They Are… And WHY
They’re Becoming A POWER TOOL For Internet Marketers”.

I hope this article clearly answered the questions you once
had about “Blogs” and the benefits of starting one of your
own.

Building An Online Business Is Like Starting A Garden, You First MUST Plant Your Seeds

Posted in Home Business at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

I know what your thinking, “what the heck does starting a
garden and planting seeds have to do with building an
online business?”

Well… it all depends on how you perceive what I’m about
to share with you.

I’m merely using that headline as an analogy to a Powerful
marketing strategy that I use to send HIGHLY targeted
traffic to my online business… Effortlessly, that almost
every website on the Internet is hungry for.

Now, we all know that in order to be in business you need
to either provide a Product and/or Service that cater’s to
an particular Niche.

That’s the easy part to figure out.

The part that is usually the hardest with most online
businesses is growing that business, and we both know that
in order to grow your business online you need “TRAFFIC”.

We’ve all experienced these growing pains, myself included.

And, finding a cost effective marketing strategy these days
like the one I’m about to share with you takes a little
time to learn, but, in the long run will benefit You and
your business for years.

Here are just a few benefits you’ll receive when you
incorporate this marketing strategy into your existing
online business…

1) It’ll BOOST your websites “Link Popularity”…

2) It’ll give YOU and your business INSTANT credibility…

3) It’ll build TRUST with your potential customers…

4) It’ll send your website Residual traffic for years…

… and best of all, it’ll put You infront of thousands of
HIGHLY targeted customers… for FREE!

Do any of those Benefits get you excited?

They sure get me excited simply because I know it works and
well at that.

So, with that said, I’m sure your getting a little anxious
to find out what these “SEEDS” are that I’m so fond of that
will put your online business infront of thousands of
HIGHLY targeted customers Absolutely FREE!

Are You Ready?

!!WRITING ARTICLES!!

That’s right… Writing Articles, in my mind, is one of the
BEST and most cost effective forms of online promotion, no
matter what business your in.

WHY?

Read the BENEFITS I listed above one more time to refresh
your memory.

Where else or what other marketing strategy online will
give you a list of benefits like that.

And, the best part is… it doesn’t cost You anything, and
yet, almost every website owner online is starving for it.

Here’s another quick reminder for you, why do you think
they call the Internet… “The Information Super-Highway”.

The Internet received that name for a reason because that
is exactly what it IS.

All you need to do is supply the Information in the form of
an well written “Article” and send it to related websites
and/or newsletters around the web related to your
particular Niche.

Just imagine for a minute, what one article or half a dozen
articles, for that matter, would do for your online
business?

You’ll never know until You get started, so my suggestion
to You is, start brain storming some article idea’s about
your Product or Service and write them down on a piece of
paper.

Once you have a clear idea, “Start Writing”.

So, there you have it, and that’s why I stated… “Building
An Online Business Is Like Starting A Garden, You First
MUST Plant Your Seeds” in order for your online business to
grow.

I truly hope you understand the importance of writing
Articles and why they are considered one of the BEST forms
of online promotion for your business.

7 Powerful Ways to Get One-Way Inbound Links

Posted in Internet Marketing at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

It’s no secret that having links pointing to your website is very good for search engine rankings, and gives more ways for human visitors to find your website. So, how do you get one-way inbound links to your website? Well, there are numerous ways, and I am going to focus on seven of the most effective techniques.

You probably already know about link exchanges as great way for getting links to your website. However, with link exchanges, you have to give a reciprocal link back to the website that is linking to you. In this article I am going to show you how to get links to your website without giving a link back.

Ok, here are seven powerful ways for getting one-way inbound links:

1) Content  Packing your website full of useful content is one of the best ways to get inbound links. When you have a lot of content other webmasters will naturally link to you because your site will be valuable to them and their visitors.

Some examples of good content to add to your website would be; free articles, tools, tips, and resources related to your website theme. You could also have a blog that you update regularly with fresh content.

2) Testimonials  A big trend on the internet right now is adding testimonials to websites. The site owners typically get the testimonials from their site visitors and business customers. In exchange for the testimonial they usually give a link back to your website.

Every time you come across a great website, or have a good experience with a purchase, send a testimonial to the website owner. If they decide to publish your testimonial you will get a link to your website. After a while these links will add up to a significant amount.

3) Online Directories  There are hundreds of online directories that accept website submissions. This is a very good technique for getting one way inbound links. Many of the top directories require you to pay for inclusion or provide a link back to their directory. You can give the link back if you want, or pay if you have the extra money. However, there are also numerous directories that will accept your website without payment or a link back.

All you have to do is find the ones that accept free submissions and you will get your one way inbound links. You can find quite a few directories, and some other great information about submitting to directories at http://www.directory-pages.com/

4) Articles  Writing articles is one of the best techniques for getting one-way inbound links to your website. Many webmasters are looking for more content for their websites and Ezines. You can provide them with that content by writing articles and submitting them to websites, Ezines, and article directories.

In return for your effort you can put a little blurb about yourself and/or your business, with a link to your website, at the end of the article. You will rack up a very high amount of inbound links to your website by utilizing this technique. I have done it many times with a lot of success.

5) Free E-book  You can write an e-book and offer it for free in exchange for a link to your website. You can also put links to your website and other affiliate links in the e-book. Putting the links in the e-book will increase your website traffic and affiliate profits.

You are probably thinking that you can’t write an e-book. Well, yes you can! It doesn’t have to be some killer piece of work that you spend months writing. Instead, you can just make it a collection of your favorite articles, resources, and tools related to your website theme. As long as it is useful to your visitors they will gladly link to you in order to get it.

6) Blogs  There are actually a few ways to get one-way inbound links with blogs. The first way is simply to host a blog on your website and update it frequently. People tend to link to blogs because they provide content that is constantly being updated.

The second way you can get one-way inbound links with your blog is to submit it to blog directories. Just like website directories, there are tons of blog directories on the internet that you can submit to for free. Just do a search on Google for blog directory and you will find many of them to submit too.

The third way of getting inbound links with a blog is to host it somewhere other than on your website. Then, provide a link from your blog to your website. After you have done that, you can submit your blog to directories for the extra page rank and added exposure. Use this third technique with as many blogs as you have time to update regularly with quality content.

7) Free Article Directory  Create an article directory on your website and allow your visitors to submit articles to it. Ask for a link back to your website in exchange for the article submission. This will build your inbound links and create free content for your website.

Alright, there you go, you now have seven very effective techniques for getting one-way inbound links to your website. Get started on them right away and you should see your search engine rankings rise, your website traffic increase, and your profits explode. If you have any questions about any of these linking techniques just let me know, I will be happy to help. You can find my contact me link at the bottom of my website.

block and is taking the Internet by storm as Internet
marketers are hurrying to incorporate this new form of
communication and technology into there existing online
businesses to Maximize there exposure online with NEW
and/or Existing customers.

I recently received a post on my Blog from a fellow that
inspired me to write this article since I found the nature
of the topic important to ALL who are serious about getting
the most out of there RSS feed and this new technology.

I’m pretty sure you can guess what he ask from reading the
headline of this article.

came up with…

“8 TOP Ways To Promote Your RSS/XML Feed For MAXIMUM
Exposure”

So, with that said, let’s dive into the first and MOST
important step to Maximizing your RSS feed for the exposure
it deserves.

Step #1. Build a dedicated webpage for your RSS feed.

This is probably the most important part of getting the
most out of your RSS feed, is by building your own
dedicated webpage for your RSS feed subscription.

The KEY here is to give your potential readers many options
to adding Your RSS feed.

The best way for me to illustrate this to you is by
clicking on the link below that leads to my dedicated RSS
feed subscription page so you can see first hand what you
need to do to get yours started.

Click here:
http://www.internetwondersezine.com/rss_feed.html

Did you notice all the different options I give?

That’s what you need to do.

Now, for those of you who aren’t so web savvy, don’t worry,
I have something for you that will auto-generate a RSS feed
webpage for you within minutes if you already have a Blog
or RSS feed.

The service I’m talking about is called FeedBurner.com —
http://www.feedburner.com — and is a free service for you
to sign up for.

Here’s what my webpage through FeedBurner.com looks like so
you’ll have an idea of what yours will look like.
http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheInternetWondersBlog

Do you see all the options they give your potential readers
to add your RSS feed to there RSS readers?

Once you’ve accomplished one of the two options above your
all set to start promoting your RSS feed for MAXIMUM
exposure.

Step #2. Add links to your RSS feed webpage on your website.

This is yet just another way to pull your visitors towards
your RSS feed webpage by simply adding Text or Graphic
links to your existing webpages.

Make sure you put them in Highly visible area’s where your
visitors will see your links.

I would would put one at the top, middle and bottom of your
website.

This really depends on what kind of website you have so
you’ll have to use your own dicression.

Here’s what I have done on my website to give you an
example. Click here: http://www.internetwondersezine.com

Step #3. Add this HTML tag to your RSS feed webpage.

Here’s something you can add to all your websites webpages
that will get the attention of Search Engines spiders to
come on over and check out your RSS feed further.

Simple add the following HTML tag to the head of your
document:

link rel=”alternate” type=”application/rss+xml”
title=”YOUR SITE TITLE RSS Feed” href=”URL TO RSS FILE”/

(note: add this in front of “link rel” and this to the
end after the forward slash /)

Step #4. Some idea’s if you have your own newsletter.

If you have your own newsletter like I do, here’s a couple
ways to get your visitors to visit your RSS feed webpage.

Add a link on your “Thank You” page that leads to your RSS
feed webpage. Whether its a Text or Graphic link.

The key here is to get your RSS feed link in front of your
readers as much as possible to get them to add your RSS
feed to there readers.

The next one is, add a link inside your “Welcome” email
that’s sent out to your New newsletter subscriber after
they’ve subscribed.

This again, will give you another chance of getting them to
add your RSS feed to there readers.

Step #5. Put together a “Signature File”.

Here’s another couple great ways to get your RSS feed
webpage more exposure every time you send out an email or
post to any online forums is by simply putting together a
“Signature File”.

Now, every time you sent out an email to your list and/or
business contact you can attached your “Signature File” at
the end of every email you send.

The same goes for online forums, every time you make a post
or answer someone else’s, your “Signature File” will be
automatically attached.

Your “Signature File” doesn’t have to be a huge, a few
enticing lines will do fine with your RSS feed URL.

Step #6. Submit your RSS feed to RSS Directories and SE’s.

Another great way to give your RSS feed more exposure is by
submitting it or them to RSS Directories and Search Engines.

I’ve listed a few resources for you below to get you
started with.

- Feed Shark
http://feedshark.brainbliss.com

- Ping-O-Matic
http://pingomatic.com

- RSS Top 55
http://www.masternewmedia.org/rss/top55

Step #7. Write an article, if you write articles.

This is a great way to get your RSS feed webpage in front
of thousands of targeted readers absolutely FREE!

Simply write an article on a HOT topic within your niche,
and at the end of your article add an enticing, attention
grabbing “Resource Box” that points to your RSS feed
webpage URL.

Step #8. Set-Up a PPC(Pay-Per-Click) campaign.

For the last step to getting your RSS feed webpage Maximum
exposure is to set-up a PPC campaign.

By doing this you will be able to send HIGHLY targeted
traffic to your RSS feed webpage that are hungry for the
information you have to offer.

The only downside to doing the PPC tactic is that it will
cost you.

And, this tactic solely depends on whether or not you chose
to set-up an RSS feed webpage of your own.

Now, I’m sure there are many others ways out there that
could draw in more visitors to your RSS feed, but, these
ones I just outlined in this article are the Best ones in
my mind and are the ones I use.

Well, this concludes the, “8 TOP Ways To Promote Your
RSS/XML Feed For MAXIMUM Exposure”, so, the only thing I
have left to say to you is… Get Started!

3 POWERFUL Ways To Profit From Your BLOG… Starting TODAY!

Posted in Internet Marketing at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

Cyberspace has a NEW marketing tool, even though they’ve
been around for quite some time, yet, ONLY recently have
been recognized as a Powerful communication tool for
Internet marketers.

If you’ve been following the latest Internet marketing
trends like I have, then you’ve definitely heard of them.

What’s this new marketing tool I’m taking about that every
Serious marketer should have in place?

BLOGS! …(A.K.A. Web-Log).

Now, just for those of you who aren’t quite sure what a
BLOG is, here’s a quick definition:

A BLOG(A.K.A. Web-Log) is basically a journal that is
available on the web. The activity of updating(usually on a
daily to weekly basis) a blog is called “Blogging” and
someone who keeps a Blog is a “Blogger”.

There you have it, quick and to the point.

If you want to read up more about “Blogs”, here’s a link to
an article I wrote earlier that goes more in depth.
http://www.internetwondersezine.com/blogsexplained.htm

Okay. For the rest of this article I want to focus on how
ONE can $$Profit$$ from having there own Blog.

I’m going to list three ways that I think are the Best and
most Powerful ways to get the most out of your Blog.

So, with that said, let’s go to Profit Tactic #1.

Profit Tactic #1. Writing “Articles”.

Writing “Articles” are a very Powerful way to profit from
your Blog.

There are many reasons why “Articles” are valuable to your
Blog, but, for the purpose of this article I’m going to
give you the most important part, and that’s your “Resource
Box” at the end of your article.

Your “Resource Box” is like a classified ad and holds
critical information about You, your websites and what you
have to offer them after they’ve read your article.

The links within your “Resource Box” could lead to your own
Product or Service you have to offer, or they could lead to
a Affiliate Product related to the content of your article.

This is a great way to give them something of “Value”,
which is the information within the article, and a great
way to get them to take action by way of getting them to
click on one of the links within your “Resource Box”.

That’s “Profit Tactic #1″.

Profit Tactic #2. Writing “Product Reviews”.

Writing “Product Reviews” is a great way to profit from
your Blog simply because they allow you to Soft-Sell your
potential customer by way of giving them your personal
opinion on the product you are recommending and then
providing them with a link if they wish to look into it
further, instead of throwing a Sales Pitch at them.

Nobody likes to be sold, but, offering them your insight on
a Product and/or Service that could help solve the problem
they’re dealing with is yet another great way to profit
from your Blog and make you look like a Hero.

That’s “Profit Tactic #2″.

Profit Tactic #3. “Text Ad” Programs.

“Text Ad Programs” like Affiliate Power Ads or Google
Adsense are yet Another great way to profit from your Blog.

I’ve listed these two “Text Ad” programs for a reason, One
is a Pay-Per-Click(Google Adsense) and shows related ads to
the content on that particular webpage and the other
one(Affiliate Power Ads) makes You up to $60 to $100
dollars in commissions on a single click.

Here are the links for you to check them out further if you
wish.

Google Adsense —
http://www.internetwondersezine.com/googleads.htm

Affiliate Power Ads —
http://www.internetwondersezine.com/powerads.htm

They are both FREE to join and only take you minutes to
set-up depending on your experience.

Here’s an example of how mine looks if you were to set-up
your Blog through Blogger.com — http://www.blogger.com
with both of these programs. http://theiwe.blogspot.com

The great thing is… they’ll be displayed on every page of
your Blog when you make a post.

I also provided a link below that shows you How-To set this
up “Step-By-Step”, making it Easy for you to get started.
http://www.internetwondersezine.com/help.htm

Now, I’m sure there are many other ways to $$Profit$$ from
your Blog, but these ones in my mind are the most Powerful.

Well… there you have it, “3 POWERFUL Ways To Profit From
Your BLOG… Starting TODAY!”.

If you haven’t started a BLOG, maybe it’s time you
considered it since NOW you have some incentive.

I truly hope this article helped you realize the $$Profit$$
potential your Blog could have and how you can start
incorporating it… Starting TODAY!

From Debt to Financial Freedom

Posted in Personal Development at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

The vast majority of working people are in debt. The vast majority of people who are now in debt are always struggling to find better jobs with higher pay checks. As strange as it may sound the more you think about it the more you will come to realise that the more money people make the deeper they get into debt. It almost seems that finding another job with better pay check is not the most effective solution to get out of debt.

These same people are now so weary that they are wishing to be out of debt forever, dreaming to never have to worry about money, craving to be financially free.

As you know, jumping from being deep in debt to having financial freedom is not a small leap at all. To attain real freedom takes concrete planning and self-discipline in taking orderly and progressive steps from where you are now to where you want to be.

Before your finances can actually soar you need to get out of your deep hole of debt first. This should be your first goal. As soon as you are out of debt, you can easily embark your journey to your financial freedom!

Track your daily expenses

The aim for doing this is to know exactly where your money goes everyday. Record every incoming and outgoing penny and evaluate every week how much money you spent on necessities and how much money you could have saved. Was it really necessary to buy those $200 shoes using your credit card? Could you have bought something less expensive with the money you actually had in your wallet instead of using your credit card again?

By recording and evaluating your expenses regularly you will come to see that there actually are ways to reduce expenses and save money! The more money you can save everyday the more money you will have to pay off your debt completely.

Dont rob Peter to Pay Paul

Some people are so deep in debt that they dont know what to do. It is common that at some point they would obtain cash advance on one visa to pay other credit card bills.

Do not go through this kind of rob Peter to pay Paul strategy! They usually dont work. Most people are too easily tempted to further use the visa or the cash which was initially intended to pay other bills for shopping. Eventually, they wind up accumulating even more debt.

As you see there is no financial advantage for you in having more than one credit card. On the contrary, the robbing Peter to pay Paul strategy would only make your debt worse.

Cut up your credit cards and keep one card (if really necessary) for emergency ONLY.

Now that you are trying to get yourself out of debt and have actually started saving money to pay it off, stick to your plan and stop accumulating more debt. This should be your next goal.

One credit card can be very useful in case of emergency and having one credit card is usually still manageable. But if you are in debt with more than one credit card, in addition to other kinds of debt like car loan, mortgage etc., there will be times when you feel that you are drowning in it.

Choose one credit card to keep and cut up the rest. If you dont trust yourself enough lock up the one card you have in your drawer at home to make sure you never use it for shopping. Discipline yourself not to use it unless in an emergency. Remember: you want to get out of debt, not accumulate it!

Plan Your Debt Elimination Process

The best ways to start your debt elimination process is by first sitting down and making a plan of attack.

Write down each debt that you have: Visa, MasterCard, Amex, car loan and so on. Now, make a list of your debt, starting from the smallest total balance to the biggest.

What you are going to do is concentrate on one debt for the next few months (or years depending on how big your debt is) and start paying off all of them one by one. Focus on the smallest debt first. Write down the monthly minimum payment of the smallest debt you have and add the number up with a percentage of your net income.

Lets say the smallest debt you have is your Visa with the minimum payment of $148. The 5% of your net income is $70. For the next few months (or years) you will be paying off your Visa with the minimum payment PLUS the 5% of your net income, which is $218.

While you are focusing on your Visa, you should pay off the rest of your debt according to each monthly minimum payment agreement. This should go on until your Visa is paid off completely.

As soon as your Visa is paid off, you focus on the smallest debt. Like before, add up the minimum payment with 5% of your net income. But this time add the sum with the minimum payment of your Visa that is already paid off.
If your next smallest debt is the MasterCard with minimum payment of $183, this should be added up with the 5% of your net income AND the Visa minimum payment. The total payment for your MasterCard would be $401. Now that your Visa is paid off you have more money to pay off the rest of your debt faster.

Your next debt should be paid with the money you used before to pay off your Visa and your MasterCard minimum payment. This process should be repeated on and on until all your debt is eliminated.

By doing this you will shorten the years of your debt elimination process.

Manage Your Time and Money Wisely

Time and money is the most precious resources everybody has to actually attain financial freedom. But yet, none of us are taught in schools to manage them wisely.

Now you are in the process of paying off your debt. If you manage your time wisely to make more money to save or help to pay off your debt, you will not only speed up your debt elimination but retirement process and your financial freedom.

Devote some of your spare time to reducing your expenses and increasing your income. The sooner you become debt free the sooner you can save more money and invest to start working on your early retirement process and attain financial freedom.

Everybody knows the disadvantages of being in a debt. But not many of us are aware of the advantages of being debt-free. By being debt-free you have more money to save and invest to prepare for your retirement. And this should be your next goal. Use your time wisely to create extra money and use your extra money wisely to prepare for your retirement and eventually your financial freedom.

Create Passive Income

Now you have paid off your debt, taken up a side job and saved money for investing.

Your next important step to financial freedom is creating passive income.

Passive income is income which requires little or no work at all. Although it is possible to attain freedom just by saving, it will take decades to actually accumulate wealth. Some people never even make it there. By creating passive income you will not just be able to speed up your debt elimination and retirement process but also your journey to attain financial freedom.

The most powerful way to create passive income is by having your own small business or home-based business. This type of business does not require a lot of capital.

Keep your business expenses low and try to put aside a percentage of your net income for saving and another percentage for investing in your own business. Note that for the next 1-2 years you will be experiencing negative cash flow from your new business. But keep in mind that if you persistently invest your spare time, effort and money in your business, you will have all the quality time you want to spend with your family and friends, all the money you dream of for you, your family and even your grandchildren and all the freedom to live your life abundantly.

10 Quick and Easy Steps To Building A HIGHLY Targeted And Responsive Opt-In List

Posted in Internet Marketing at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

We’ve all heard it that in order to stay in business online
you need to build a Targeted ‘Opt-In’ list.

Well… I truly have to agree with that simply because this
is where you’ll always have a consistent source of FREE
Targeted traffic(also referred to as ‘Sticky Traffic’) to
promote your offers or related information to for years to
come.

It just makes sense, wouldn’t you say?

And, we all know that ‘Email’ is where the $MONEY$ is truly
made when it comes to marketing your business online
because it gives You the ability to Follow-Up your
potential customers until they decide to buy from You.

But, the problem that usually takes place is that people
don’t know where to start when it comes to building there
own targeted Opt-In list.

Now, for those of you that are new Internet marketing and
don’t know what a ‘Opt-In’ list is, here’s a quick
definition:
An ‘Opt-In’ list is simply a database of peoples Names and
Email Addresses that have subscribed to an email list via a
web form giving that list owner permission to send them
periodic emails on the topic they are interested in.

Notice how I said, “giving that list owner permission to
send them email”.

When they subscribe to your Opt-In list they are giving You
permission to send them offers or related information on
the topic they are interested in, this is known as
‘Permission Email Marketing’.
This is the ABSOLUTE safest form of email marketing where
You won’t get accused of ‘SPAM’.

This is very important that You understand this from the
beginning.

So, now that you have a clear idea in your mind of what an
Opt-In list is and how it will benefit You and your
business, I guess it’s time to share with you the simple
‘Ten Step Process’ that I have put together for you on
How-To build your own targeted Opt-In list that you can
email your offers to at any given time for $Profit$.

Step #1. Pick your Target market or Niche.

This is a very important step because this is where you
need to figure out who your target market is going to be
for the Product or Service your going to offer.

So, for example, if I was interested in selling a book
related to Internet Marketing, well then, my target market
would be Internet Marketing related. <

Step #2. Can your Target market or Niche be reach online?

This step is where you need to do a little research on
whether or not your particular target market can be reached
online.

In order to do this you need to do some keyword research
using keywords related to your target market.

You can do this by using the Overture keyword research tool
located at the URL I’ve provided below.

http://inventory.overture.com/d/searchinventory/suggestion/

Simply type in the keywords related to your target market
in the form provided.

This will give you a detailed history of how many searches
have been made in the last 30 days on the keywords related
to your target market.
As a general rule, if your targeted keywords aren’t pulling
in 15,000 or more searches per month, then this is a market
I wouldn’t pursue simply because there isn’t much demand
for it.

Step #3. Are they making money in this Niche?

This is where you need to do some research on your
competition to see if people are spending any money in this
Niche.

You can do this by going to Google at http://www.google.com
and type in your targeted keywords related to your Niche in
the form provided.

This will give you a list of search results.

Those results are your competition, but even more
important, to the right you’ll notice little ads.

These are paid ads offered through Google Adwords.

This means that somebody is willing to pay to advertise and
is paying attention to this particular Niche and must be
making money if they’re willing to pay for advertising.

That’s good news for you.

Step #4. Use Forums to find your Target markets problems.

Forums are a great place to find out exactly what your
potential customers TOP problems are by simply scanning
there posts and looking for the most common threads.

By doing this you’ll be able to know right away what your
target markets TOP problems are and how you can help solve
there problem.

To find Forums related to your Niche simply visit Google
http://www.google.com and type in your targeted keywords
with ‘+ forums’ after your keyword.(ex. internet marketing
+ forums)

Step #5. What’s keeping them from getting what they want?

This is where you have to figure out whats keeping them
from getting what they want in order to fix the problems
they are dealing with, meaning, this is where you need to
work with them to find a solution to there problems.

Whether its a Product they need or a Service of some sort.

Step #6. What can you offer them to solve there problems?

This is where the money is being spent.

Now, the only thing you need in order to receive your share
of the revenue is a Product or Service that will solve your
potential customers problem.

If you don’t have a Product or Service of your own don’t
get discouraged.

I’m going to give you two resources where you can find
products or services that You can become an affiliate for
that are related to any Niche that will pay you a
commission for every sale you make by simply referring your
traffic to there website.

The two websites to visit are http://www.clickbank.com and
http://www.associateprograms.com

Step #7. Set-Up a simple direct response mini-site.

Here is where you Set-Up your lead generating website with
a Follow-Up System that your potential customers will come
to and Opt-In to your list to start receiving offers or
related information on the topic or problem they are having.

This is a very simple process to do and you can view my
website as an example of how one would look.

http://www.internetwondersezine.com

If you don’t know how to build your own website you can
always hire someone to do it for you by going to…
http://www.elance.com

Step #8. Get an Auto-Responder account.

This is where you’ll be laying the foundation down for your
list.
You MUST have an Auto-Responder account Set-Up before you
make your mini-site go live because this is where your
potential customers are going to come and submit there Name
and Email Address so that you can start building a list to
send your offers or related information to.

So, do not miss this important step.

Step #9. You need to figure out what ‘Bait’ to use.

What I mean by ‘Bait’ is… what are you going to offer
them for FREE to get them to subscribe to your Opt-In list.

Here are some examples of what you can use as ‘Bait’:
ebooks, special reports, mini-courses, coupons, etc.

These are the most common. It really depends on who you are
targeting, so be creative.

Step #10. Reach out to your target market.

This is the part where you send traffic to your website in
order to get subscribers.

I’m going to mention only two methods.

These methods are the most POWERFUL and for good reason,
they work.

The first method is Writing Articles.

By Writing Articles your showing your target market that
You are someone who knows how to help solve there problem
and may have a possible solution for them.

This is the quickest way to build INSTANT credibility in
your Niche.

The second method is to send targeted traffic to your
mini-site through Pay-Per-Click search engines.

Pay-Per-Click search engines are where you bid on the
keywords terms related to your target market and are listed
according to the highest bid for that keyword term.

By using PPC search engines, it will get you infront of
your target market Instantly.

Writing articles gives you INSTANT credibility and will put
you infront of thousands of readers, and Pay-Per-Click
search engines send you HIGHLY targeted traffic to your
website within minutes depending on which PPC search engine
you are using.

The More traffic you send to your website, the More
subscribers you’ll receive.

It’s simply a numbers game.

Well… there you have it, “10 Quick and Easy Steps To
Building A HIGHLY Targeted And Responsive Opt-In List”.

Now… it’s up to you to take the neccessary Action in
order to get started with your own targeted Opt-In list.

If you already have an existing web business online simply
implement the steps outlined above to your existing website.

These are the 10 basic steps required in order to get your
Opt-In listing building started in the Right direction.
Simply follow them and you’ll be on your way to receiving
your first subscriber in No Time.

10 POWERFUL Reasons Why You’re Crazy NOT To Start A… Home Based Business.

Posted in Home Business at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

Home Based Business’s are spreading across North America
and have become widely recognized as one of the most
desirable business’s to start for several reasons.

Just think for a minute what it would be like to work from
home and never have to worry about waiting in grid lock
traffic or to answer to your boss’s demands.

Wouldn’t that be great?

In todays fast paced world a little extra income doesn’t
hurt in order for the average guy or gal to get ahead in
life so they can enjoy the little extra’s life has to offer
that there current job doesn’t allow them to do.

I know from experience because that’s what made me take the
neccessary action steps required in order for me to enjoy
the quality of life I wanted to live and provide for my
family.

But, the problem that usually occurs is people need to be
motivated by something or inspired in order to take action.

Well, the purpose of this article is to do exactly that,
inspire you.

I’m going to cover with you the 10 main reasons why You
should consider starting your known ‘Home Based Business’
and the benefits behind each of them.

I guarantee once you read through them you’ll agree that a
‘Home Based Business’ might be worth considering.

With that said, let’s go to reason #1.

1. Be your own Boss.

Ever dream of being your own Boss?

Well starting a ‘Home Based Business’ is a step in the
right direction and the best part is, you’ll never have to
answer to anyone else’s orders, just your own.

2. Work when you want to.

This is probably one of the best reasons in my book for
starting a ‘Home Based Business’ simply because you get to
set your own schedule for what hours You want to work.

This is especially beneficial for stay at home moms who
have children to tend to and need some flexibility in there
work schedules.

3. Freedom to do what you want when you want.

How’s that for a reason to get started. By being your own
boss and being able to schedule your own work hours you NOW
have the freedom to do what you want when you want to with
whom you want at anytime.

It’s a great feeling to be in control of your own life and
do what you want when you want.

4. No more worrying about job security.

By having you own ‘Home Based Business’ you never have to
worry about receiving a pink slip from your boss or a
“SORRY”, but the company has to cut back on its employee’s
and You happen to be one of the one’s who has to go.

5. It doesn’t interfere with your current “J.O.B.”.

That’s right, you don’t have to quit your current J.O.B. in
order to get started. You can start on a part-time basis
until your able to replace your current income with the
income you generate from your business.

Remember, you get to set your own hours for when you want
to work your business.

6. It will make you a more confident person.

By setting out and starting your own business it’ll make
you a more confident person because it takes a lot of
confidence to start something you have no idea what the
outcome might be and the risks involved, whether there
financial or personal.

7. It builds a sense of pride.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to tell your friends and
family or just somebody you meet that you’re an
entrepreneur and you run and operate your own successful
‘Home Based Business’.

Pride also works as a motivator because the more successful
you get the harder you’ll want to work in order to achieve
the goals you have set for your business.

8. It’s all for the MONEY.

MONEY is a pretty obvious reason for starting a ‘Home Based
Business’ because Why would you otherwise start a business
if you weren’t planning on making any MONEY.

It also builds a sense of security for your way of life and
the things you enjoy doing because the facts are… nothing
for FREE. Everything has a price.

9. You get great Tax benefits.

You heard right, you get Tax benefits with running your own
‘Home Based Business’ because now you’re entitled to home
business tax deductions.

This is a category in it’s own and getting a good CPA who
has experience with home based business tax returns will be
essential in order for you to maximize your return for the
year.

10. Wouldn’t it be great to retire early.

If your business turns out to be a SUCCESS and you invest
and put your money to work for you, wouldn’t it be great to
retire early and do the things you’ve always dreamed of
doing, but never had the time or money to do so.

There you have it, “10 POWERFUL Reasons Why You’re Crazy
NOT To Start A… Home Based Business In 2005″.

Now, if those 10 reasons don’t get you excited about
starting a ‘Home Based Business’ then I have failed to
inspire you.

If you need to read through them again, do so now.

These are the very reasons I contiplated before starting my
home based business and in my mind are the most common.

Write down for yourself why You would want to start a ‘Home
Based Business’, I bet you’ll come up with several of the
reasons I’ve listed above.

With that said, there’s one more thing I want to mention
and that is if you are seriously thinking about starting a
‘Home Based Business’, whether it be online or offline,
make sure you put together a ‘Step-By-Step’ business plan
on the actions you must take and make sure you start a
business you enjoy doing.

What Is The Difference Between A Work at Home Business And A Work at Home Job?

Posted in Home Business at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

As a home business entrepreneur who is primarily involved with a program wherein I sponsor Affiliates in a downline, I often find that I am the recipient of emails from new enrollees who are clearly confused on several fronts. Commonly received initial emails consist of questions such as When do I start my assignment? and What is my position in your company? Somehow, these individuals are under the mistaken notion that by registering for a home business program, they have been hired by a company and are embarking on some sort of non-existent home based career.

It is apparent that a fairly generalized confusion exists among people desiring to work at home between a work at home job and a work at home business. Further, it seems apparent that individuals are not thoroughly researching an entitys background, specifications, and compensation PRIOR to enrolling. Therefore, it is the goal of this article to define a home based job, a home based business, and to outline the differences between the two so that those desiring to work at home may make informed choices prior to clicking on enrollment forms online.

Despite the national trend of allowing more and more people to tele-commute rather than spending 40 hours per week at a desk on site at a given company, demand for home based or tele-commuting jobs staggeringly outstrips the supply and landing a home based job with a consistent paycheck as an employee is in reality quite hard to land. Further, tele-commuting or home based jobs rarely allow for working solely at home 100% of the time.

Generally, some on site time away from home will nearly universally be required. The best way to search for tele-commuting jobs is to directly inquire about tele-commuting opportunities in ones geographic locale. A formal employment application process, interview, and resume will certainly be required to procure a tele-commuting job.

Midway between a tele-commuting position as described above and home business entrepreneurship is freelancing. If one has a highly developed and marketable skill such as typing (particularly specialized typing such as medical transcribing, or legal document preparation), bookkeeping, data entry skills, or other highly developed specific knowledge that is in demand, it is possible to match oneself up with companies needing ones skills. One can generally compete with other Freelancers and bid per piece or per project. A company will generally select the most reasonably priced and highly skilled bidder and pay them per the pre-arranged terms at project completion.

A home based business is by definition ones self creation or in essence giving birth to sole ownership and development of ones own entity. Home business entrepreneurship involves designing and developing a new business from scratch where the home business entrepreneur is responsible for their own expenses and supervision and where pay is nearly universally 100 commission based.

If one does not have specific skills, education, or a product to sell, home business ownership is still possible and indeed can provide a lucrative income if approached in a strategic and well-researched manner. Well-established companies that are recognized by the Better Business Bureau exist. Programs to seek out would be those offering free sign-up, an array of quality products that are in demand, free training, and access to live mentors.

In summary, tele-commuting salaried jobs do exist but the competition is fierce for these positions. Freelancers with highly specific skills can often work from home by bidding and being paid for individual projects. Finally, home business ownership is open to all, regardless of skill level or educational background and no formal application process is required. Home business ownership offers unlimited potential return, yet requires research, strategy, and the willingness to carefully invest some money for promotion in order to develop a solid and ongoing return.

Who Says the Customer is Always Right?

Posted in Internet Marketing at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

We all know the old adage, “The Customer is Always Right.”
If you are an online business owner or offline for that
matter, you are on both sides of the subject almost
everyday.

Before I started my online business, I was just on one
side… the customer. I whole-heartedly believed in the
above adage and never questioned it at all. In fact, I
would get rather perturbed at ANY business owner, manager,
or supervisor that would disagree with any complaint I had.

When I started my own online business back in 1997, I
slowly began to learn the “other side.”

My business products are all downloadable. If your business
includes downloaded material, you know where I’m going with
this one. I get NUMEROUS complaints EVERYDAY about
usernames and passwords not working, corrupt downloads, and
the big one… “I can’t open the download.”

Now I always
reply in a very helpful gesture, but my first question is
always, “Are you entering the username and password exactly
as shown?” This seems to be one of the “biggies” with
newbies. They do not understand “case-sensitive” — heck —
they don’t even know what that means!

But it doesn’t matter HOW simple I make the instructions
and overall download process, I STILL get these everyday. I
am accused of being a “scammer” at least 4 - 5 times a
week… and that’s on a GOOD week! :o )

The whole point of the above example is NOT that customers
are wrong — that’s not the problem at all. Many of them
are very new to the internet and sadly, they do not read
through the directions most of the time. I have found that
I basically have to put myself back into the “newbie” frame
of mind — as hard as that is to do! I don’t remember NOT
knowing how to download, enter case-sensitive passwords,
etc.

You MUST try to understand that customer… at the point of
contact, whether by email or phone, they have probably sat
there for HOURS trying to figure it out. They are
irritated, angry, and they’ve pretty much decided at that
point that you scammed them.

Yes, it’s irritating getting these “dumb” questions and
emails even when you have them broken down so simply in the
instructions. But face it, you’re going to get them and you
will get them often as more and more climb on the “web
wagon.”

When I get a very insulting email (yes, I HAVE been called
the “B-word,” the “MF-word,” and recently a new one that I
have never heard before… it was quite disgusting), I do
not answer it immediately. I let my initial anger subside.
When I can read through it and giggle… it’s time to
answer. I find that 80 - 90% of the time, the customer is
VERY embarrassed of their initial email by the time I have
helped them courteously through their problems.

I had to learn this process through time. Believe me… I
am a VERY sensitive person and I used to take these to
heart. It HURT! I had to revert back to my “customer side”
as well as the “newbie” frame of mind and do my best to
understand the person’s anger.

One angry customer can lead to thousands if not millions in
lost business revenue! Especially on the internet. That one
customer tells one friend who in turn tells another and so
on a so forth. You COULD get a real “psycho” customer that
decides to start a website all about YOUR company and YOUR
poor service or product.

Watch that one spread like a virus! :o )

On the other hand, exercise great customer service (get
those emails answered within 24 hours, folks) and watch the
*praise* of your company spread! I guarantee that you just
GAINED thousands in sales!

MOST importantly remember these three things:

** LOVE YOUR CUSTOMER

** UNDERSTAND YOUR CUSTOMER

** VALUE YOUR CUSTOMER

You are NOTHING without them. Treat them like gold and you
will RECEIVE gold in return!
