Deciding when to put a blog post is a factor often overlooked by some bloggers.
The time at which you post can have a great impact on your readership.
Do you think I’m crazy?
Take a look at your web stats.
Awstats is a good tool for web analytics (I’ll go into this in a future post).
By auditing your traffic patterns, you can first triangulate:
- The core country for most of your readers (homeground)
- How long they stay at your site (stickiness)
- Which posts are they look at (content concentration)
If your core audience is from the US, you would want to take note of daylight hours in the US.
Free is a dirty word.
Every time I used it, my spam filter flags it with a 3.6 rating. Meaning a high chance of landing in the Spam basket.
No charge and in your sleep are also no-no’s that you want to avoid in your emails.
Heck, even “hello” in your subject line will flag you for spam.
Then how am I supposed to talk about my buddy, Stuart Tan’s upcoming event this Wednesday?
You probably already know that Stuart is the Executive Director of the Adam Khoo Learning Technologies Group, and together with Adam Khoo, runs a number of personal development programs.
He’s giving a 2 hour talk, Internet Money Secrets, where he’ll explain what Internet Marketing entails and the various business models.
I asked him for more details. (yes, I fight for the interests and maybe kaypohness (sense of inquisitiveness) of my blog readers.
Come on, what’re are you going to talk about.
Why don’t you come and find out, you’ll be in for a treat, he said.
I booked my place immediately. After all, if he’s going to give an information-packed presentation and it’s all at the cost of nothing (me trying to outsmart the spam files), then it’s silly not to go, don’t you think?
Come on, Stuart, what will you be talking about? Nobody will go if you’re going to talk about your Barbie doll collection, I protested.
Oh, all right, I’ll give an introduction of Internet Marketing, touch on the various business models before I go into the fun topic.
Fun topic? What fun topic?
I suspect there’s be interest in this, but I probably should save it for later.
Come on, spill! dammit!
Oh, alright. I clocked up sales in the six figure region in the last 12 months and many people have asked how I achieved that. I’ll be sharing some of that at the session.
Oh, ok. Can I have a few seats then?
To cut a long story short, I got a “few”.
I offered me the places to my Keiretsu Internet Marketing group, and there were many ready takers.
I have 5 more seats left, if anyone wants them.
If you do, please send me an email at enquiries (at) whoisandrewwee.com. I’ll need to enter your name, contact number and email address into the online reservation system.
If you get a seat, I’ll email or call you to confirm. If not, there’s always next time (no idea when that will be)
PS: due to the small number of seats available, I promised them I’d get back to them on Monday latest. If they’ve any more seats, they’d released them only if people dropped out.
I hope you understand, I’ll have to select entries on a first come, first served basis. So email me now.
I’ve received a number of questions regarding my affiliate campaign where I’m promoting:
Most questions center around:
- Why did you choose them?
- How much did you make?
Here’re the replies:
I chose these 2 products on the basis of:
Secret Blog Weapon (ok, the creator calls it WordPress Adsense System which sounds very scientific): This is a fresh blogging package by Malaysia-based blogger Gobala Krishnan. Gobala has been in Internet Marketing and specializes in blogging.
The contents of the package are listed in my previous post: At last, a bloggerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s path to making Internet Marketing money!
The product was launched a few days ago.
First adopters will reap rewards in traffic, Google PageRank and increased Adsense revenue. Gobala’s system is based on sound principles and will stand the test of time.
Do you need it? If your Google PageRank is currently 2 or below and your Alexa is above 100,000, Gobala’s system will definitely give you a leg up.
If you have no idea what your Google and Alexa rankings are, you definitely need this product!
Ewen’s Secret Affiliate Weapon is one of the craziest buys at $9.97. In case you missed it, here’s the previous post: Ewen Chia the Internet Marketing and Affiliate Marketing guru
Ewen is widely known as a “super affiliate” having regularly topped the top affiliate marketers list of Internet Marketing luminaries like Marlon Sanders, John Reese and the Internet Marketing Center. This product also contains access to his secret blog which contains the solution to the recent ‘Google slap’ (which affects Adwords and Adsense revenue).
How’ve my results been?
I’m using a combination of SecretBlogWeapon and UltimateAffiliateWeapon for my affiliate marketing campaign.
In four days, my net earnings amount to $220. The income came from various affiliate marking products. The numbers are actually better than they look when you consider that my blog links (especially the sales links) were inaccessible for a day when I was applying Gobala’s optimization routines on my WordPress blog.
Should you get it now?
Definitely! You’d help me.
But here’s how you benefit.
I’m offering access to my Internet Marketing insider forum for any purchase of either SecretBlogWeapon and/or UltimateAffiliateWeapon.
You will need to buy through one of these links so my order tracking system can capture your particulars.
What will the Internet Marketing insider forum contain?
I’ve compiled a long list of resources which will complement your blogging, adsense and affiliate marketing efforts. These will give you a further advantage over other Internet Marketers.
I will share advanced Internet Marketing strategies which my team has developed recently and you’ll be the first ones to put them into action.
In fact, I found it was very funny how you will be paid to put some of these strategies into action, while simultaneously generating backlinks to your blog or website. Backlinks will help pump up your Google and Alexa rankings.
Will you have money rolling through the door?
If anyone says you will make big bucks overnight, stay clear away!
If you’re focusing on building a sustainable, consistent and ethical business, you will see the reward in a matter of time, depending on the effort put in.
I’m opening up 20 places in the forum. This may not sound like a lot.
However, my team will be working with each of you to help refine your blog or website. My technology development team is creating additional WordPress tools which will help enhance your results. You will have priority access to these tools.
I’ve already received feedback from some of the buyers that they aren’t interested in the forum and they just want to do casual blogging.
This means there could be much less than 20 people in the forum.
Is this good news?
Heck yeah! I’ll be happy if there is 1 participant in the forum.
It means I will be working in depth with you.
Please don’t take up the forum offer unless you are committed to grow your business.
Ultimate Affiliate Weapon buyers will receive a 3-month access (worth $30) to the Internet Marketing insiders forum, and Secret Blog Weapon buyers will receive a one-year membership (worth $120). If you buy both products, you’ll receive a
18 month lifetime membership (priceless!).
Does that sound fair?
I plan to close this offer once we’ve hit 20 members, or early next week. Whichever comes first.
This will give me time to execute our Keiretsu Marketing campaign next week.
It was a long wait.
And the wait is over.
To be frank, I have been mucking about with blogging till about a week ago.
That’s when Malaysia-based star blogger Gobala Krishnan launched his WordPress Adsense System. I call it my SecretBlogWeapon.
What is it?
It’s an integrated product containing an insider guide to the WordPress blogging platform, with all the plug-ins and templates to give you flexibility in developing a corporate, hobby or Google Adsense contextual advertising-optimized blog.
Speaking of Adsense, he includes the ‘Top 5 Adsense secrets you’ll ever need to know‘ and approaches to build niche content (which gives you greater traffic and income earning power) as well as methods to generate traffic and original content for your site.
There’re also other goodies like a comprehensive SEO guide and a ‘profitable blogging’ ebook.
All in, it’s great value and beats some of the products that I’ve paid more than double the price for.
Gobala mentioned that depending on demand the price might be adjusted. So do check it out now at SecretBlogWeapon.
As a bonus, having recently implemented it, I am available to help the next few bloggers who purchase it and have difficulty along the way (but not likely as the ebook is well-written).
If you have to plan to go Internet Marketing, be sure to bring your Secret Blog Weapon
