On this video and article we will talk about my secret to link building and how it can improve your off-Page SEO.
Link building is the process of securing hyperlinks from different sites to yours. A hyperlink (usually just called a link) is a way for users to navigate between pages on the internet. Search engines use links to crawl the web; they will slither the links between the individual pages on your website, and they will crawl the links between entire websites.
Why is link building important? The only reason is to get higher up in Google. Links are a very crucial and important signal that the search engines use to determine rankings. So, we know that the higher the number of high-quality links pointing at your website can significantly increase your chances of ranking well. The more links you have, the better, as long as they are quality links.
Now the #1 Secret to Link Building is Competitor research. It is very crucial because you need to have high quality links connected to your sites. If research is not done properly, there is a very big possibility that links that will be connected to your site are not valuable. You have to investigate systematically or do a research where your competitors get Backlinks from. You have to know certain blogs or websites that link to promote brand like yours and you have to figure out where do your competitors get their brands from.
You may ask, how will I find that out? Well the answer is basically, you need to do this by having free trial on websites like Moz, Majestic SEO and Ahrefs. These are all websites that help you with your off-page SEOs. Here you can see where your competitors are getting their links from and you can actually see where you’re (more…)
When people blog, that’s always about a popular product, or a company, and when they blog, people always read it because the blogs are somehow a review of it. One of the things you want to do is to get blog postings about you and your business – that way, it will increase traffic as well as increase in your popularity, meaning to say – more sales.
On these video and article are 6 steps to get blogs posting about you and your business:
1. Engage With Them Socially And In The Comments
Start the conversation with the blogger or the journalist, in fact before you even want the article to come out, and before you even want them to write about you. Authors love to hear from the readers, they love hearing feedbacks. Why not tell them how much you love it and that will surely attract them. Interact and keep on commenting. The goal of commenting is to develop a relationship. Read their blogs or tweets and comment on it and say something positive.
2. Email Tips
The next thing you wanted to do is E-mail them. Subject lines are very important. In reality, 33% of email recipients choose whether or not to open an email by just reading the subject line. That’s why you’re subject line needs to be attractive enough to get people to click through. A good way to have a good subject line is to ask questions. People love curiosity and when they’re curious they wanted to know what the answer to it is. Also, you can include a video on the email. They might not read it if you put in a long article in your email. Keep it short. When you send an email though, your goal is to get people read it and nobody wants to read a (more…)
Off page SEO pertains to the techniques that can be utilized to enhance the position of a site in the internet’s search engine results page. Our main goal is to make our site famous and have traffic on it. On these video and article, I will be sharing my tactics for Off-Page SEO and Link Building.
Let’s first talk about history. The first Google computer, thanks to Larry Page and Sergey Brin, gives such good quality search results. Generally, Off-Page SEO has to do with promotion methods – more than that of a website design, with its purpose to rank the website higher in search results and it focuses to activities outside the boundaries of a specific site.
In connection to this, PageRank is the most popular off-Page SEO method. PageRank is a calculation used by Google Search to rank sites in their web search engine results. PageRank was named after Larry Page, one of the organizers of Google. PageRank is a method for measuring the significance of site pages. It is not about getting as many links as possible, it’s about as getting high quality links as possible. So if you can get a site such as a government site, or high PR new sites, that’s more valuable that getting a random site. Wikipedia for example, since it is a reputable source, has so many links coming to Wikipedia, so Google ranks Wikipedia style pages on higher hierarchy than it does on other sites.
Here Are The Secrets On How To Do It Properly:
What The Site Is About
You have to make sure what the site is about, it all depends there. You have to make sure that the link should really relate with your site. If your site is all about dance wear, you have to get a link from a site – that (more…)
As social media becomes on trend, you have to use it for your advantage in marketing for your business. So in this video and article, I will cover 7 Tips for Better Social Media Marketing For Your Business.
Post Native Content
A lot of people in social media, when they wanted social media marketing for their business, they just want to put a picture of their product, which is really not a good idea. People don’t just want to see the product that you’re selling, tendency is they will just get pass through it. The best thing is to do is to hook your viewers with whatever you post or whatever you’re doing in social media. One of the best example is Pinterest. If you will just show your product there, people will surely not pin it but if they will be engaged, like probably a DIY or more ideas on a specific content than the product itself, they will more likely pin it because it engages the consumer and it’s interesting.
Jab Jab Jab Right Hook
Jab Jab Jab Right Hook is a book written by Gary Vaynerchuk. The goal of this is you wanted to give more helpful content and then eventually ask for the sale in return. You have to make sure that it will be worthy for people to follow you on social media. If you just keep on asking them to buy stuff, eventually they will unfollow you because that is somehow annoying. Why you wanna do this? It is because you want people coming back to your site, and you want them to watch out what’s coming up next on your post. So if it happens that your next post is a promotion or a giveaway, those people are more likely to be engaged.

Promotions or social media giveaways will work as well as people will be constantly checking your account.
Vine is a 6-second video sharing service where you can share your looping videos through social networking sites (including Twitter and Facebook), and you can embed it on your website.

Why Email Marketing Is So Important
1. High ROI
This is one of the best ROI platforms you can probably use your money for. Come to think about it. With Adwords, you might get only 4x or 5x ROI. But, with email marketing you can get as much as 75x ROI which means for every dollar you sent, you will be able to get as much as 75 dollars back.
2. Convert New Customers
This might not come as a surprise to most of online marketers. But, let me tell you one of the best things about email marketing. For example in my website Bdancewear.com, people sign up to our free “Dance Costume DIY Guide”. This means that if they sign up to our DIY Dance Guide, probably they are also interested in dance costumes. So, once they sign up to our free guide, they will give out their email addresses. Now, as part of my email marketing campaign my next goal is to turn these people into actual paying customers.
3. Get repeat purchases
This is another reason why email marketing is so awesome. Email marketing allows you to let your customers who bought from you once, to buy from you again and again. What I do with my website is that after a week from the day they bought from us, we send them an email about us, giving them value in emails. As a result, we find most of them buying again from us.
Why Email Marketing is So Great

They made tons of money on Facebook ads. They did retargeting which means that when people go to their website and then they do not buy something but when they go to their Facebook page they will see an advertisement for Me Undies website.

It is probably some of the cheapest traffic you can get to your website – retargeting traffic.

In this video and article I will be teaching you some tips on how you can customize your transactional/automated emails. When someone buys from you, that customer automatically receives an email which says “Thank You for the Order”. There is a lot of work that can be done to making this email more specific.
How do you customize these emails so you can make more sales in the long run?
Don’t let the funnel end.
In your thank you email, you should have links to your social media. This is one way to encourage your people not to stop there. Most ecommerce stores think that when someone buys from you it is over and your job as an ecommerce store owner is over. This is completely wrong. That someone who has bought from you is the most valuable customer or the most valuable potential that you have.
Now there are two different mindsets that people in ecommerce have. The first type of person is a hunter who likes to go out so he could get new customer constantly. The other type of person has the mindset of a farmer who likes to look at the customers that he already has and help them come back and purchase again. So, let us think about it. It takes a lot of work to get new customers constantly. But, if you could somehow convince some of those customers that have already bought from you to come back to you or convince them to tell their friends that they bought from you that is when the business becomes big. Think of the most big businesses you know. It is because they are able to keep the customers coming back to them again and again or because they are so good they are able to convince their customers to tell (more…)
