How Much You Should Spend With Adwords

This video and article is about how much money you should be spending with the number one online advertising by Google – AdWords.

This platform enables advertisers to compete to display brief advertising copy to online users. Through AdWords, you can create online ads to reach people exactly when they’re interested in your type of business. Trying this platform would be risky as you really don’t know how it will go, and how people will respond. It involves potential loss of profit, possible.

If you will be spending money in advertising services such as AdWords, of course, you have to make sure that it’s worth it. And of course, you wanted to see how much you have to spend to see if your ad works.

For me, you can spend however much you are willing to lose because spending your money in advertisements is like gambling. Also, it depends on the product that you are selling, if you are selling a high-end product with a higher budget, then you might wanna spend a lot higher in advertisements.

You can set a margin of up to $100 and see if it works, if it doesn’t, you can evaluate what seems to be working and not working with your ads, probably your website or your landing page. Or If you’re really afraid of spending, start with $5 a day, that way, you won’t be spending a lot of money and you can see if it’s working or not for you. That way, for only $5, which isn’t much to lose, you can test your website and start getting some traffic there, since Adwords is one of the quickest way to get people coming to your website, why not give it a try.

I’ve tried spending around $200 to $250 for Adwords, immediately, however, it didn’t work immediately. I (more…)

Launching a Kickstarter / Online Store in 30 Days – Day 1

This video and article is about day 1 of my 30-day challenge to start a successful ecommerce business.

To be a successful businessman, one needs to be efficient so I decided to do it in 30 days to make sure I set up everything in a timely and efficient manner, as well as tracking the progress of what I do. Moreover, not just for my own benefit but I wanted to share my knowledge to other people looking to start their own business. I haven’t even made any product as of yet but what I have is an idea that I’m starting to test. I have decided to go for the health nutrition space, kind of a food item. My targets are the biohackers, the Paleo diet people, the ketogenic, the crossfit, and the people who are really interested in nutrition.

So starting this ecommerce, the first thing I did was research, it is the most important. I did some research on my competitors about what they do, and I found some that are doing something similar but I think I can do something better than them, most especially if we’re talking about marketing. I also did research on similar websites, what other things are out there. Also, I was creating customer avatars where all information from an ideal customer where all his profile and information were there. I went to facebook and check audience insights, checking on what else do people like, what other interests they probably have, and I learned a lot about my demographics by doing this. I’ve also came to realize that more women are likely to hit the “like” button than men, so I decided to make my product and my target a little bit neutral.

Also, I decided to do a lot of podcast, contacting a lot of (more…)

#1 Secret to Link Building to Improve Your Off-Page SEO Page Rank

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.

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.

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…)

6 Steps to Get Blogs Posting about You and Your Business

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.

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.

Off Page SEO and Link Building Tutorial

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.

Page Rank

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…)

7 Tips for Better Social Media Marketing For Your Business

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.

 

  1. 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.

  1. 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.
