Hello dear readers This post is to inform you of the new Blog-based online store WTBET! – Where To Buy Enlightenment Tools! This is my last attempt to make any money of online marketing. Not that I will mention it much, but you will now know of another place where you can find alternative health/medicine tools like: Acupuncture Neelds, Models, Infrared health solutions, Massage tools, Crystals, Sound Therapy waves and much more.

There are many people who has asked why I do not have a Donation Button on my blog, well… I don’t feel right with taking donations, so if you feel you should contribute to keep this blog up, not that it costs much for running a blog of this size, you can check the Sales-blog and see if you find something of use there.
While I am on the topic of online marketing I feel I must warn many of you. It is never as simple as the seller claim, you may make money selling others a “job” and might even make lots of money, but very few of those who say they make lots of money, actually do. Those who are trying to sell you something will never mention the real downside of their products. Many , including myself, have walked into the same scams from different angles time after time.
As Tao Te Ching say: “Those who understand do not speak, those who speak does not understand.” Keep that in mind when you find an online income producer. Those who feel they have to say that this is the best ever, and even (sometimes manufacture) proof that their system is the best, is actually rarely as good as it seem. It can be seen as through the same eyes when seeking a religion. Those who have to overcompensate for anything shields a darker truth.
I have been through many “guru”s’ systems with not even a dime in return. The most of them make money through that one sale, and learning you how to sell the system to others. The thought may be good, but the result is almost always frustration, stress, broken dreams and often much money spent. So be skeptical towards most online income systems, most are just scams. The only thing I have gotten out of these systems is how marketing is not done, for then find out how it can be done.
Now that it is said, let me show some marketing tips that actually work when it comes to getting traffic. I bet you already know of many of them and of many other methods, but these has worked for me.
Article writing: This can be very effective for driving traffic. Write something interesting with more than 500 words. This is something that can be lot of work, but when it is done right, it can bring thousands of visitors to your site. I use to do this when I write a post here. I copy ca. half of the post and links to this blog saying, “to read the rest of this article click here”. This has given me most of the readers that I have. There is a very good chance this is how you found this blog. I use a software called AutoTrafficSystemX. This program allows me to submit articles to the biggest article directories at the same time. It spares me lots of time.
SEO: Search Engine Optimization is a great way to get free traffic. For you who do not know what it is, it is how to get search engines to show your site under a related search. Most search engines send out a “spider” that crawl over your website and register keywords, content, back links and probably more. What they look for is great content with matching keywords and and few links out, but many links that points to your site. I have now a network of 5 sites who point to each other and some external contacts that I link to and they link to me. This makes it easier for your site be found, when other sites have a connection to it. When it comes to content it depends on the niche of the site. If you have a game or a movie site or similar you don’t need to think so much about the written content, but more about the total picturesize and kb. Lots of pictures in big sizes will make your site operate slower and search engines will prioritize them lower than those with small picture sizes. When it comes to written content, you should keep the first page under 20 links to external sites, and over 350 words with keywords that match. This often gives me good SEO result. It is also possible you found this blog though search engines due to these tips.
Social Network Marketing: The best tip I can say in this area of marketing is this: do to others as you’d like them to do to you. Many use to post sales links on peoples walls in facebook, this is just suicide to your business. The point of Network Marketing is to actually create a network of people who choose to be part of the network. So to make a group, or facebookpage is gold if you don’t overpromote it on your profile and others’. Just be chill and speak when spoken to, people will like you way more than the one who sells loudly. Say what you can offer once, and let others ask you for more information if they are interested. In my eyes this is one of the most effective trafficdragers i know of, when done right. Use these tips in any Social Network, like myspace, twitter, linkedin, digg, stumbleupon etc. Just remember to be chill, those who seem stressed are as usually stressed, and stressed people sells least. When I press publish on this post, it will be shown on my myspace, linkedin, twitter, yahoo and facebook automatically. This is done once and those who wish can read. It is also possible you found this blog this way.
Classified Ads: This option is something I used to take back in the days when I used to promote clickbank products and income opportunities. I do not use this to promote anything other than my clinic now. When your going to write an Ad there are some tips that usually work better than when not used. Tip #1: Write an appealing headline that makes the targeted audience click and read more than just the headline. There are no wrongs or right, but every first letter in the headline should be big, like this: “How To Wipe Anus Properly!” Many people would click this headline, just because it is shocking, supricing, and a little humoristic in many peoples eyes. Here is the same headline with proper grammar: “How to wipe anus properly!” Do you see the difference? You should use something in the niche you desire that fulfills Shocking, Suprising, and Humor, you can also use an informative angle, this also works good. The body of the Ad should reflect the headline. In this case with the mentioned headline it could look like this: “Studies show that wiping your anus after flatulence is twice as more efficient with 4 wipes, instead of 2. This makes your hygiene greater as well. There are also a matter of toilet paper at stake; with a more robust 2-ply toilet paper, you can clean quite well, but is may sting due to the dryness of the paper. If you use a soft 3-ply toilet paper you get a sensation of good anus-hygiene but it hurts the forest 1 ply extra than the 2 ply. Try out our middle-soft 2 ply toilet paper that has the feeling of cleansing-sensation and the robust handwork of the regular 2 ply toilet paper. Click here now!” Do you get the picture?
Blog/Forum Commenting: This can be very effective. This is done like so: you read a post and give your opinion about the topic or the writing. What I see many people do, I did this myself in the early stages, is to not read the post, and just write something common like: good post, followed by an URL to a product. Someone also just post a sales-pitch as a comment, that doesn’t even mention anything of interest for the blogger nor the reader. These posts almost always get trashed. The only one that mostly sees them are the admins before they delete them. The proper way to do this is to actually write something of value to either the next reader or the blogger. Write a good complement that reflects that you have read and understood the post/topic, do not have a single link in your comment, maybe as a signature in some forums, bet else, just fill out the commenter form with a name, e-mail and website. This way it will most likely be approved by admin and showed as to anyone who reads the comments in the future.
Those are the marketing strategies I use to promote anything. But they actually do not mean anything if you do not get a very special philosophy.
A.I.D.A. + K.I.S.S.
A = Attract.
I = Interest.
D = Desire.
A = Action.
K = Keep
I = it
S = simple,
S = Stupid
If you can make any marketing strategy after these simple principals you can sell anything to the targeted audience of your niche.
I wish that someone had told me this in the early stages of marketing, may be I could have made my dreams come true before I switched my focus towards alternative medicine and my Tao.
But what about choosing the right niche? for those who don’t know what niche means, it is the field of products you have chosen. Example: gaming, work from home, green products, alternative medicine etc. When you are going to choose a product to promote, you should choose either something that interests you, or something you know a little about that is “In” right now, but has the fewest competitors.
I’m going to use the article tip as mentioned earlier when this post is done. If you find this blog as an article first, you know that it works. I will also, as always, use good keywords, so if you find this blog on google, bing etc. you know that it also works. Also if you find this on any social network.
Good luck to you if you are into online marketing, it is a hard business to make it in. But keep your head up, your self-esteem and third eye tuned and this will be easier for you.
Have a nice day ♥
