ebooks marketingInformation marketing is all about providing helpful content to attract new business, right?

It makes sense that you can generate more interest, more subscribers and sales when you show off your expertise with ebooks.

Yet, many people I’ve visited with have the erroneous beliefs;

  • That if they find a market with too many competitors why would they write an ebook for that audience (which may also be their targeted group).
  • And, Small Business Leaders who work with a company that offers a web site to send their target audience to, feel the same. Why should I write an ebook, when they can get all the info they need.

To the contrary, competition and getting your information to your audience in a personal way, can be beneficial for a variety of reasons including…

1. Researching. If there IS a lot of competition, you can reasonably expect your business to be part of a lucrative marketplace. Read more

List Building OnlineOne of the most challenging steps to making money online is to build a list, a ‘responsive’ opt in list is your real goal. Not just “Build a List.”

  • The money is in the list, right? We’ve been hearing that since day 1 of Internet Marketing 101.

Yes, it is in the list, or more accurately, the ‘relationship’ with the list.

  • So once you have a list started, you begin email marketing…

I’ve read that a large (95%) percentage of people subscribing to your list will probably never purchase what you have to offer whether it is affiliate programs or your own products/services. But that’s OK – as you keep in touch, you’ll build that relationship with more of your education marketing to your list.

And, the more you keep in touch with your list in positive ways,  each person will start to trust, like and find you credible, then more will step up.

==> That’s one of the reasons we are persistent!

  • In order to build any list you need to entice visitors to your blog, website or landing page with something of very high value. Read more

Starting a blog is easy – keeping a blog interesting and fresh is a whole other matter.

While many marketers have no trouble beginning a niche blog, the sheer number of abandoned blogs around the ‘net speaks to the fact that many marketers don’t know what to do to keep a blog going. According to blogging experts, the key to keeping a blog going is to post frequently. This means that you’re going to need a ever present stream of content coming into your blog.

You may be intimidated by the thought of having to come up with lots of topic ideas. Finding topics for your blog posts are easy if you use the following ideas.

1. News in your niche
Your blog should be timely and there’s no better way to attract attention on your blog than to tap into some ongoing news. No matter what your niche is you can find news stories and breaking information that will help fuel timely blog posts. Sign up for Google Alerts (it’s free) and set up alerts on important words in your niche. This way you’ll be able to see the news in your niche and blog about current topics.

2. Comments section
The comments section in your blog can be a great source of writing inspiration. Let’s say you have a post on your marketing blog about keyword research. Within the comments section, a few people start asking about how to use keywords in articles for article marketing. Voila! You have your next blog post. Look through your comments section to identify topics that you can write about or questions you can answer in the form of a blog post. Read more
