I was tagged by PepperJam Head Honcho Kris Jones as part of the “What Magazines Do You Read?” (and have a titbit for niche researching Internet Marketers).
I don’t read many magazines, reading most of my content and feature content online.
Besides reading the print edition of Singapore’s major English daily, The Straits Times, which comes with weekly tech, fashion and lifestyle “magazines”, on the rare occasion, I check out:
- Revenue (I read the online digital edition when I can)
- Skymall catalogue found on most domestic flights
- Tabloids like US, People
Tabloids and rag mags are a good opportunity to (more…)
Well, not quite a date, but still how does an intimate 1-on-1 consultation with one of the world’s top search engine marketers/optimization experts sound?
I saw this in Jeremy “Shoemoney” Schoemaker’s post “Emom Holds Birthday Contest”
Wendy Piersall, owner of eMoms, is celebrating her blog’s one year birthday.
She’s roped in a number of the Elite Retreat faculty to provide prizes and all participants are eligible for a discount coupon for the next event.
The highlight, a phone consultation with Jeremy and Wendy on how to grow your business or blog.
The check Jeremy’s holding is for an Azoogle Ad.
Among the other prizes:
- Aaron Wall’s SEO Book (an excellent resource for Search Engine Optimization)
- A premium membership to Lee Dodd’s Earners Forum
And a number (more…)
It’s 1030am and on the sidelines of Jo Han Mok’s Warp Speed Internet Marketing workshop:
I was looking through my blog and got tagged by Dawud Miracle for the Goal Setting meme originally started by Alex Shalman and have gone through eMom Wendy Piersall (winner of the recent Elite Retreat ticket)
Having taught life skills and goal setting specifically, I’ve noticed that many don’t include the following criteria: goals have to be:
- Specific: Include a measurement, so you’ll know when you’ve achieved it (a net worth of $x million, rather than merely “really rich!”)
- Time Specific: You need a timeframe. Theoretically we could all be millionaires, even if we’re earning just $1,000 a month. The problem is that at that rate, you might need to work till 305 years to achieve it. So goals don’t mean much without the time factor.
- Realistic: I use a “reality check” factor. If you’re a complete computer idiot, and you’re gunning for $1 million in your first year in Internet Marketing and you can spend 30 minutes a week on this. You might get slammed hard against the wall when you meet Mr Reality.
There’re other criteria too, but I’ll spare you the gory details.
So here’re my goals: (more…)
Linkbaiting on social networks like MyBlogLog, MySpace and BumpZEE is common, especially when Internet Marketers use pictures of bikini-clad women as their avatar.
While there’s nothing intrinsically wrong with the practice, I feel that it sets up expectations that the blogger or website owner will have to deliver on once the visitor lands on your page.
If you can keep your readers happy, you’ve laid the foundation for a successful and low cost (possibly free) traffic generation model.
The sad reality is that more than 90% of the sites using such techniques have average (and usually sub-standard) poor content.
At best, this is gimmicky in my opinion and best used for one-off, throwaway adsense-oriented traffic.
But if you’re a serious Internet Marketer in this for the long haul, you’d do much better to build your brand, which means either using your photograph, or an image which represents your online presence.
Iconic Avatars: Michael “GrayWolf” Gray, Jim Kukral, Rasheed Ali, Robyn Tippins, Todd “StuntDubl” Malicoat, Shawn Collins, Chris “Drinkbait” Hooley, Jeremy “Shoemoney” Schoemaker.
Credibility and reputation are essential to your long term success, and being consistent in your online branding build rapport with your visitors. Consistent branding will bring you (more…)
I had a blast at Affiliate Summit West this past January (though it seems like a year ago…) and besides meeting up with luminaries like Shoemoney, Scott Jangro, Shawn Collins, the enigmatic e-book “crusade” Jon F of WickedFire, PlanetAndrea, a major highlight was meeting PepperJam head honcho Kris Jones in the flesh.
PepperJam head honcho Kris Jones and Andrew Wee at Affiliate Summit West, Jan 2007
If you’ve been reading the PepperJamBlog for any length of time, you’d discover a treasure trove of information and can bump up your Internet Marketing efforts.
In his latest post “Affiliate Marketing – Thinking Outside the Box“, Kris dishes out the dirt on how he recently executed a campaign grossing $30,000 in sales, netting $15,000 in profit. And while some Super Affiliates may net six or seven figures in income per month, consider that Kris spent 15 minutes setting up this campaign.
So Kris has made a killing off UGG Boots.
How would he further enhance his efforts? (more…)
Newer Internet Marketers continue to be confounded, bewildered and frustrated by RSS.
Sure, everyone may know that it stands for “Really Simple Syndication”, or “Rich Site Summary”. Or if you go back to it’s earlier definition RDF Site Summary.
But what does it all mean?
And is it a new technology.
Again, like blogging, RSS traces it’s roots for a number of years. To 1999 in fact.
RSS is a way of accessing content from blogs and podcasts via a easy to use interface.
While RSS was used to broadcast content from personal blogs previously, increasingly businesses and online marketers are using RSS feeds as a means of generating brand awareness and to promote products and services too.
The bugbear with RSS however, lies in the fact that it requires some techy know how to set up successfully.
Microsoft has announced that the new Windows Vista incorporates RSS support.
Given that I will be holding back on a Vista upgrade for some time (and I suspect others will also), here’re some intermediate solutions.
My preference is to install the Mozilla Thunderbird email client, which incorporates RSS support.
Another program I like is the Blog Explosion RSS Reader.
If you’ve just started out with your blogging efforts, joining (more…)
