#1) Google’s Own Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide

As you know search engine optimization can be an important way to get free website visitors. The problem is that it can be hit or miss, and a difficult thing to completely understand. Even though you can’t rely completley on SEO as your only traffic source I still advise you to at least make sure you have the basics implemented on your site.

Google has actually created their own Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide as a PDF that you can download and read at your convenience.

To further enhance the SEO you do moving forward make sure you are using social sharing buttons on your site. These are links that visitors can click on to share the content on your site to Facebook, TWitter, Google+, LinkedIn, etc.

If you are using WordPress you can use the Digg Digg plugin or for your static HTML or PHP sites you can use the sharing options available at www.AddThis.com. They also have a WordPress plgin you can use.

#2) Get The Inside Scoop On Joint Ventures

ericstipsArguably the fastest and most targeted source of website traffic will come from joint venture partners. These are people in your niche market that have email lists that can promote for you. Eric Holmlund of Eric’s Tips lays out in detail the process he goes through to get joint venture partners.

Eric knows his stuff about this topic and he has made millions in the process because of joint venture partners. He is one of the most qualified people in the industry to talk about this topic. I am also proud to say Eric is a good friend and business partner with myself and Jeff Wellman in the Real Coaching Club.

#4) How To Make $1,000,000 Per Month With Digital Products

Even though this interview was done about 2 years ago it is still extremely relevant today, and this is some awesome evergreen content on the topic of information marketing.

On a funny side note this video was made based on a true story that actually happened to me! I had a local SEO customer meet me in a coffee shop and they seriously brought in their entire desktop computer with them! It took them multiple trips to the car before they got it all inside! Meanwhile I am just sitting there while the coffee shop patrons look on in amazement.

The other interesting thing is that the owner of the coffee shop where we shot this video told us a story about how someone came into a coffee shop once and requested the free “Wiffie” as they pointed to the sign that said ‘Free Wi-Fi’!

While we were hanging out at Eric’s place in Colorado we also shot a video at a baseball game

and another one on top of a small mountain that we climbed!

Odesk Outsourcing Review: Automate Your Business

For this blog post I wanted to share with you the resource that I have found that enables me to automate my business through outsourcing. I am not going to send you to a video to watch or anything like that.

My intention is to just share with you the site I personally use to find people I can outsource tasks to for a very low cost. It is Odesk.

I am talking about article writers for $3.50 per article, link building assistants for $2.00 per hour or less, article submitters for pennies on the dollar, graphic designers for next to nothing, and more. Outsourcing daily tasks like article writing, creating graphics, link building, content submission, uploading websites, etc. can really increase your profits because you get more done!

Well, you have heard about people that outsource things for very little money and I just came across this site about a year ago that helped me find low cost and quality outsourcers. It is ODesk and here is the link below to sign up for your free account.

I am excited to share this with you because I would go to Internet marketing events and talk to other marketers I knew that were having lots of success and they kept claiming they could find outsourcers for $2.00 per hour or less.

So I would try to find places to get these employees for myself and never could find anything. Finally after someone told me another story about finding cheap outsourcing I just asked how they were doing this and if they were being serious.

So they shared with me that they were using ODesk and the way they posted their projects was how they found these employees! I of course quickly went to their website and to my surprise I found employees that were thrilled to work for next to nothing and I even found an quality article writer for $3.50 per article which is unheard of nowadays!

The key to getting what you want out of outsourcing is to state the price you are willing to pay in the project. I know that may sound simple, but I used to just post projects without saying what I was
willing to pay. So I finally stated I was looking to pay $2.00 to $3.00 per hour for this work and I got tons of people bidding in that range! I did the same thing for the article work and said I wanted to spend $3.50 per article and I got a ton of bids still!

So here is the link to Odesk so you can sign up for your free account!

Just imagine how powerful it would be if you could almost name your price and have an army of professionals ready to help you set things up for you! It can save you time and money using this site!

Another benefit of ODesk is that you pay them and then they pay the outsourcer so you don’t have to mess with paper work and reporting of who you paid which also protects you and saves you time.

I know I am going to be using more outsourcing in the coming months to really take my business to the next level. It is free to get started at ODesk. They collect their fees after you pay the outsourcer for their work. They get paid a small percentage as a finder’s fee which is very low. So no monthly fees and you can use them whenever you want!

Teen Trades Phone for Porsche: Why This Deal Stinks!

I read on Yahoo News that a 17 year old teen did a series of trades on Craigslist that started with an old cell phone and ended with a Porsche Boxster. At first I thought this  was an awesome deal, but then I realized this deal actually stinks for this kid!

All of the trades that led up to the Porsche for this high school teen spanned 2 years and it took him 5 to 6 hours per day. That amounts to over 3,600 hours spent on this project which resulted in a $9,000 car (value of the 2000 Porsche he ended up with).

If he made only $7 per hour he would have made over $25,000 which is a loss of $14,000! Now imagine if he had devoted all of that time to starting a reliable and stable online business. The income could have been huge. Now, I am not insulting this teen at all. He is brilliant to have pulled this off, but I want you to think about spending your time more wisely each day and ensure the stuff you are doing is helping your business.

Methods for True Emergency Cash

I don’t want to sound harsh when I write this because I have been in bad situations before. This is just some helpful thoughts for those that are in a desperate situation. I got the urge to write this because of a support ticket I just got done answering for an individual that purchased something from me for over $50.

They wanted to know when I was going to set everything up for them that they just bought from me. Even though I never promised this anywhere in the sales materials that I would set it up for my customers. They demanded that I help them because and I quote; “My house is cold and my children are hungry and even the dogs are ready to start looking good as food.”

I responded to them and said that I would be sending over a refund because the money they just spent with me could buy them and the kids food for at least a week. Then I proceeded to ask them if they can do writing or graphics or something like that because I could help them find some ways to make some fast income.

I feel horrible for this individual, but my reason for refunding them and responding in the way I did is because I want them to understand that if you are in such a desperate horrible situation why would you spend over $50 and then rudely demand from the product owner that they help you now even though it is a holiday nonetheless?

I enjoy helping customers and I love helping people in need, but I really think that if you are in such a bad situation that maybe you should hold onto your money and use that for the most important things which is survival at the moment.

For those struggling right now here are some ideas that may help you get some emergency cash.

1. Start a writing business and do article writing for other Warrior members. Maybe offer your services just to get in the door at $3.50 per article. Sell them in packages of 10 articles. So $35 per package then sell 10 packages. Boom right there you have $350. Now you have a lot of work, but if you do a good job you should be able to retain some of those people or find new ones. I am not saying you need to undersell your services, but if you need money fast then you need to do something drastic to get people to take a risk with you.

2. Start a link building service. Offer to do social bookmarking, blog commenting, forum posts, or other links for maybe $0.35 to $0.50 per link. Sell those in packages of 100 links.

3. Write a report or ebook on something you are knowledgeable about and offer PLR to it and run a WSO for it. Make sure it is quality, but that can make you some money.

4. Contact other Internet marketers through their support desk and offer your services to them. Even if they don’t need it maybe their students need help.

5. Seek out other webmaster forums that have a Buy/Sell/Trade section and offer your services there.

The main thing is that if you are at a point where your option is to feed your kids or buy an IM course I would encourage you to always choose feeding your kids. They are number 1 and the most important. Then make some money using the ideas above to buy that Internet marketing course and take action on it.

Hope this didn’t come across as too harsh! Happy New Year!
