I wanted to share 6 resources including articles that I have found personally useful to my success making money online. I hope you will take the time to review these and share your favorite marketing articles below in the comment section.
#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
Arguably 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.
If there is any lesson you take to heart it is this one on joint ventures.
#3) Make Your website Work Across Multiple Devices
It is more important than ever before to ensure you have a site that works across all platforms. This article will help you learn the basics of multi-device websites, teach you how to test your current website, and further assist with the building of a multi-device website.
This is a collection of articles from Google’s new Think Insights. You can get full articles and case studies here to ensure you are on top of the trends with mobile site optimization, and how this plays into your marketing efforts.
#4) How To Make $1,000,000 Per Month With Digital Products
This is by far the best interview I have ever read on the topic of making money 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. Mike Greary who is famous for his course on Clickbank called “The Truth About Abs” reveals deep insights into how he has taken this one digital product and transformed it into an enterprise that is generating over $1,000,000 in sales each and every month!
You also can’t go wrong with the interviewer which is Tim Ferriss.
