Making Money with Articles: Using the Yahoo Search Marketing Tools to Retrieve Free Keywords

Making Money with Articles: Using the Yahoo Search Marketing Tools to Retrieve Free Keywords

When making money with articles, you need to find the perfect keywords to make your niche sites a success. However, many times it is expensive to utilize paid keyword search tools. For this reason, some new marketers may prefer to try and find their keywords for free. One of the best ways to do this is to use the free Yahoo Search Marketing tools that you can find on their website.

First, go to the Yahoo website and choose Search Marketing under Yahoo Advertising Solutions. Scroll down to and click on Sponsored Search. You will see a section that says “How many searches can your business get?” where you will type in the main keyword of your decided niche. This will bring up a list a of words that have your niche subject in them and tell you how many people searched for that particular word the previous month.

To get an idea of what the competition is like, take each word that had a substantial amount of searches and input it into the Yahoo search engine using parenthesis. This will give you a good idea of how many people search for a particular keyword and how many sites you will be in competition with for the top spots on the first two pages.

This will of course take a lot more time than a paid software program and it may not give you all of the great ideas that a program might. On the other hand, it will be free and give you extra funds for other parts of your website.

If you can do this for free on your own, search engine optimize your site on your own, and write your own content, then the only thing you will have to spend money on is a website URL and web hosting. This is a great idea for those who have little to no start up cash, a lot of time on their hands, are quick learners, and can wait for the profits to start coming in (which will pretty much be pure profit).

However, if you prefer to go the easy route and utilize a keyword generating software program, you can find many online. Some are more popular than others and have been a proven way for people to dig up valuable keywords for their niche sites.

Web Conferencing: Making Meetings Virtual

Web Conferencing: Making Meetings Virtual

The world of business is changing by leaps and bounds thanks to the growth of the use of technology in everyday life. The emphasis today is on speed, speed, and even more speed. The reason for this great stress on speed? It is the fear that some other competitor might walk off with a lucrative business deal.

As competition continues to heat up in the world of business, as rival companies are born, merged or divided, and as newer and newer innovations lead to the rise of unique business opportunities, the need for better technology keeps on increasing. Sustained growth in business today depends on catching each opportunity at the right time. Technology is one way of doing that.

Remember those long-drawn business meetings that went on for hours and ended with no good conclusion? Remember the hours that were spent in waiting for all the delegates to enter the conference room? And what about all that stress over whether you will be able to reach the conference on time because you have gone and got yourself stuck in the mother of all traffic jams?

Well, web conferencing is the answer to all your conference problems. Okay, so it still is no guarantee that you will hit upon a great idea at the conference, but web conferencing will take away some of your other woes. At least you do not have to wait unnecessarily for people who have been stuck in traffic. Traffic — the grandfather of all excuses for unpunctuality — will no longer be a valid excuse.

Web conferencing — as is made evident by the name — refers to the conducting of a meeting over the Internet. Thus, people can sit at their own computers and be connected to others by a host site. In its initial years, web conferencing involved discussions posted on a message board. However, in those early years, this was not what one might call “live”. However, soon enough, it became possible to have a “virtual” meeting via the Internet.

Web conferencing today is not only much easier, but it also provides a number of different services. For instance, one could talk over live video — not tough at all in this era of the webcam. One could also have a slide presentation, where the presenter could highlight important points of interest on the slides. A poll could be taken and there could also be a session for questions and answers. Moreover, these are only a few of the basic features of web conferencing. Try it out some time, and the ease of it all will certainly have you hooked on to the idea.

Seven ways of making blogging work for you

Seven ways of making blogging work for you

With the software that blogging have nowadays, setting up one is much easier than it used to be.

Blogging has become the trend of today. They have also become a great tool that most businesses use to get the attention of more customers.

For the independent professional, blogs are an easy communication tool to enhance credibility and trust among customers. Besides that, blogs make it easy for other people to locate you on the Internet.

But then, 9 out of 10 blogs that are created have the tendency to be abandoned because they can take up a lot of time. And time is one thing that professionals do not have so much of. The result may not seem apparent in the beginning but it will be later on.

There are some keys to making your blog work best for you, instead of you working for it. Once you learned and incorporated these steps, it will only take you less than 20 minutes to post one entry.

But it is already advised that additional minutes should be spent on reviewing, reading and commenting on your blog and other blogs sites on the internet. This way, you get to keep your customers and gain potential ones.

What are seven ways of setting up a successful blog?

1. Write important and unique contents. You can also narrate and share stories to highlight your knowledge and expertise. Never forget how telling your readers how you deal with clients. Let them know the value of what you are offering. And make it easy for them to contact you if they have questions to ask or if they want to avail your services.

2. Put up something new twice or thrice weekly. It does not to be very long articles. Short articles are fine as long as the essence and value is there.

3. Link to other useful resources available on the web. This is very important in order to build traffic expanding your target market. You can research online for topics you can post that is related to your site offering. If possible, write out comments on other blogs. Let them know that you are spending time reading about them so they know that you are always available.

4. Do not forget to submit to blog directories and do trackbacks. If you do not have any idea how to do this, get the help of someone that is an expert on that field. You can also read some blog tutorials available on some sites. Ebooks are also offering some tips and techniques on how to go about blogging.

5. Keep track of your visitors. Have a counter set up in your blog so you will see who has been reading your posts. This will also help you in figuring out the number of people that are coming in and coming back to your blog.

6. Make a list of all your products and services. Check if the landing pages are linked correctly. Nothing can turn off visitors quickly than having been linked to some site not in any way related to your blog. If you have a shopping cart, you can use your affiliate links and ad tracking features for easy access.

7. Remember to link to your own website and vice versa. It is better to have a different site dedicated to your blog than having one incorporated to your website. Having it separately increases your chances of getting more and varied types of visitors. Why do your advertising in one when you can do it in the ways.

8. Blogs should not be pure “sales talk”. Readers are a lot smarter nowadays. They can sense marketing from afar. If this happens, they will not be interested in continuing on because they do not want to be marketed on. They encounter those things everyday so spare them the suffering.

9. Be patient. Although there are some blogs that work right away, some takes time. Update, update and update but do not expect instant result to come pouring in. Just sit back and think of other techniques you can use to your blogs to make it more successful.

Blogging should not be set aside as something unimportant. It can be very useful for you once you know what you are doing.

What About Film Making And The Internet?

What About Film Making And The Internet?

This is a most exciting time for independent film makers. Now that the internet and digital technology have paired up, we are seeing the old way of Hollywood shifting to the new independent film makers. The emergence of this technology has paved the way to new markets and tools for the film making industry. Most significant is the fact that this development has changed the areas where the independents have had the most difficulty- development, marketing, and distribution.

Studio big-wigs have ignored the internet, treating it as a passing fad or a tool for film promotion. When Time-Warner was taken in by AOL, they understood what the impact would be. The Blair Witch Project brought this point home, the young film makers brought fame to the film with very clever web marketing. Hollywood production, marketing, and distribution has become the old way of film making, and this is causing a good bit of anxiety with the major studios.

Independent film makers who have traditionally been left out and ignored by the film making industry, are now building websites. These sites deal with the traditional ways of film making, but many of them address the problems with financing, marketing, and distribution, and suggest remedies for these problems. Independent film makers are able to directly contact potential investors with scripts and potential story ideas. They are able to pitch their ideas to the investor themselves.

There has also been an insurgence of online festivals, distributors, and resources where an independent film maker can market their film to a worldwide audience and show the product to the interested party directly. This market is available to all, and the forerunners make up the criteria as they go. These new film makers will harness the internet, and be successful in digital film making.

There are several methods and techniques when it comes to digital production. There are innovative trends and studies of up-and-coming independent film makers, online. You are able to learn about script development, marketing, digital distribution, how to enter film festivals, and much more. These topics are available to anyone who is interested in learning the new techniques in film making.

The internet is fast paced and growing steadily. These techniques have been out there for a while now, but as I said they has been ignored by traditional Hollywood for quite some time. These techniques are evolving rapidly and they will be critical tools for the independent film makers who want a successful career in the new revolution of the film making industry.

Of course, before you jump into film making with everything you have, my advice is to become familiar with every
internet concept and tool that can help you produce, development, and market your project. Weigh the possibilities to find the best technique for you, your budget (while it does come with a cost, you will find internet based film making is cheaper), and your artistic abilities.

As far as financing your film making endeavor, you may want to look into film making grants. There are several out there, just do a search on the ever evolving internet.

How do you plan on making your money?

How do you plan on making your money?

How do you make money? How do you not let money use you? Well let’s take the first question? How do you make money? Here are some easy ways:
• Job
• Start a business
• Inherit money
• Lottery / Gamble
• Crime

As odd as it sounds, all above are viable ways to make money. Most of the population makes money via a job. We work for others. This is a familiar, respectable and time honored approach to supporting yourself. The only problem is sometimes you end up jobless, defeated, and angry. Welcome to the rat race!

Starting a business sounds nice. Become the boss with all the neat stuff like suits, executive offices, and lavish lifestyle. This sounds great as long as you are successful, and you assume ALL the risk. We touched on this before. Mentally you need to prepare to go through the fire of being an entrepreneur if you have never done this before.

Inheritance is great. You just need someone rich to die and leave it to us. This is not likely and nonrenewable. The money is always running out if you don’t make more.

The lottery is simply NOT going to happen. Gambling is just plain stupid. Casinos don’t build 75 million dollar fountains with the money they lost to patrons.

The constants in making money are preparation, preservation and perspiration. The preparation is what we’ll call the money trap. Preparation centers around the business make up, the marketing action and the follow-through. Efficiency is of the utmost importance. Preservation means that your business must preserve its value. Value embedded as hard assets, or financial instruments have long been used for value preservation. Preservation of value is re-investment.
Re-investment is business building.

Perspiration is the undeniable cost of owning and running a business. Most of the fantasies about running and owning your own business fade when the self-employed realize that when they don’t work, they don’t eat. This is the hard work that nobody likes to talk about. Successful owners are diligent, disciplined and focused people. They work weekends, holidays, and virtually everyday.

Most businesses have barriers to entry, the minimum cost of investment. With the age of computers new businesses like internet marketing, desktop businesses and other digital businesses have evolved. It is critical that entrepreneurs take advantage of automation. Few business forms don’t involve interaction, high entry barriers (big investments to start) and other difficulties. MOST traditional brick-and-mortar businesses involve the investment of thousands of dollars, often with no business training or mentoring in the field of business.

An excellent business is one that fits the following description:
• Low or no investment
• Requires little/low time investment
• Requires few/no employees
• Provides a RENEWABLE source of income
• Services are FAVORED over goods, as services are infinitely renewable, products reach a sales maturity level and decline

Below are some examples of desktop businesses you can use at home to make money:
• Resume writing
• E-bay
• Internet Information Marketing
• Permanent Tourists….

There are a lot of benefits to living and working outside your daily environment. It is very difficult to increase your risk tolerance while you are “trapped” by your current lifestyle. Often businesspeople “find” themselves when laid off. You may need to step outside your life to go the next level.

Most people can’t envision themselves stepping outside their lifestyles because we are so well conditioned to go to a job. Think about it, you are trained to get up and go “somewhere” on a schedule your entire life. In kindergarten, kids are conditioned to get up and live on a schedule from that point on. True businesspeople don’t have a rigid schedule. They earn their way by balancing risk with reward, one of which is personal freedom. What is your freedom worth? Often times we ask what the successful know that we don’t. The answer is nothing. The difference between the successful businessman and us is that he will accept the risk or tough way to eke out a living and we will not. I urge you to summon your courage.

Niche Marketing Mini-sites – Making Money Online Doesn’t Get Any Easier

Niche Marketing Mini-sites – Making Money Online Doesn’t Get Any Easier

Over the last two years I’ve built two profitable niche websites and it wasn’t quick or easy. I can attest to the experience of other successful niche marketers who report it takes about two years to achieve a 4 figure monthly income.

Along the way your patience is put to the test by daily income reports that never seem to budge and you start to wonder if it’s all just a big waste of time. If you’re a first time entrepreneur, waiting for your hard work to achieve critical mass and explosive earnings can be maddening.

When I built my first website the prevailing wisdom was to build a large, 50+ page content rich website. With 25 years of off line business experience behind me, I was prepared for whatever this new internet marketing business model threw at me. And after 3 or 4 months of part time work I got my first check from Google.

But this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially if you’re just itching to get started and can’t wait to see those five fabulous words: Pay to the order of.

The problem is finding a comprehensive, A-Z program that matches the skills, financial goals and, most importantly, the enthusiasm of developing entrepreneurs.

Enter the Niche Marketing Mini-Site

First and foremost, what really turns me on about the Mini-Site concept is all you have to do is build a one page website. This is as quick and easy as it gets!

Depending on the profitability of the niche you choose, the earnings from one mini site probably won’t equal those of a mega-site, but collectively they can add up to big bucks: One-one page site at a time.

How to Evaluate Niche Marketing Mini-Site Programs

What you DON’T want is one of those boiler plate, look a like internet marketing sites that thousands (millions?) of others have slapped up on the web. It’s almost impossible to make money with this type of site simply because the competition is overwhelming.

What you DO want is a Mini-Site based on a niche product or service with high consumer interest and the least amount of competition. Any Mini-Site program worth its salt will show you exactly how to use supply and demand to find these over looked opportunities.

Once you’ve found a profitable niche, you’ll want help building your website – even if it’s only one page. A worthwhile Mine-Site program will either offer a template you can optimize for your niche, or step by step instructions for creating a landing page.

The final step is promoting your soon to be profitable Mini-Site. The whole idea behind a Mini-Site is quick and easy, but if you aren’t shown the most effective techniques to promote your site, you could easily waste hundreds of hours promoting a site that took only 3 hours to build!

A comprehensive Mini-Site program should also include time tested, inexpensive, and effective methods to promote your online business.

Just one more thing – I highly recommend the Mini-Site Niche Marketing concept as the quickest, easiest, and least expensive method to earn substantial cash online.

Is Your Home Business Making You Rich?

Is Your Home Business Making You Rich?

Every business owner wants to make his or her business successful. Many times we expect to make more money than working for a boss. The fact is that it is far from easy to make a living with your own business.

With the rising of the internet the obstacles of going into business have lowered. It is easier to start and it doesn¡¯t take too much investment to make it work. In the ¡°normal¡± business environment, where more investments and risks need to be taken, it is more likely that a starter will consider his future business more carefully. And rightfully so. He or she has a lot to lose. Most probably this entrepreneur will need to quit his job to work full-time on his or her business without any guarantee on success and income. Starting an e-business doesn¡¯t need those huge risks. A lot of part-time e-based business owners can make an excellent living. That is all great, but because it is relatively easy to start your own business the process of thinking your business through is not enhanced.

And that is the disadvantage of an internet-based home business. Because it doesn¡¯t take so much effort compared to other businesses, the business owner might think the rest is also easy. But let¡¯s face it, to make a living with a business that has so many competitors it is far from easy to stand out and make it work. Many business owners start to wonder after a few months what they do wrong. No sales and no income. But this can be overcome.

Forget the fact that you, without any specific experience in the home business, were able to set up a nice website where you sell your products and services. Start to think about why people would need to join you and buy your products. Think what you need to do just to make one sale. Think what resources, time and money, it will cost you to make it work. To summarize, think of your business. Even better, put your thoughts on paper and make a business plan with your goals, assumptions, forecasts and action plans. This will not guarantee your success, but will for sure let you think about how you can reach whatever you want to reach with your home business.

In the end, your home business is as much of a business as that of any other company!

Pros and Cons of Making Your Own YouTube Videos

Pros and Cons of Making Your Own YouTube Videos

Are you one of the millions of internet users who enjoy watching free videos on YouTube? If you are, the thought of creating your own YouTube video may have crossed your mind; has it? If so, you may be wondering whether or not you should make your own YouTube video and then upload it to the YouTube website. When making your decision, it is advised that you can examine the pros and cons of doing so.

When it comes to making your own YouTube video, there are a number of cons or downsides to doing so. Perhaps, the biggest downside to making your own video and then uploading it to YouTube is that you are essentially sharing the video with the whole world. Many individuals mistakenly believe that their videos will only be seen by YouTube members, but that isn’t the truth. Any internet user, even those without a YouTube account, can view videos on YouTube. In fact, it is not uncommon for YouTube video viewers to email a YouTube video link to those that they know. Therefore, the views that your YouTube videos may get may be more than you ever expected or wanted.

Since any video that you upload to the YouTube website can be viewed by just about anyone with an internet connection, you may want to be careful with the amount of information that you disclose. For instance, if you are doing a video blog, you might not want to give your real name or at least not your full name. It is also important that you don’t mention where you live. If you want, you may want to outline the state that you reside in, but never give the city or town, especially if you disclose your name. You will want to try and refrain from giving any personal information to any YouTube member, even those who send you personal messages asking for information. As with most online website, YouTube can be a dangerous place, but you should be able to stay safe as long as you stay aware.

Although there are a few downsides or cons to uploading your videos to the YouTube website, there are also a number of pros or plus sides to doing so. One of those pros is ease of use. Even if you consider yourself to be unskilled with computers, you should still be able to make, upload, and share your video or videos on YouTube. In all honesty, all you need is a video recording device, like a camcorder or a webcam, and a movie editing software program, which now comes standard with most computers. Once you have your video on your computer and edited, if you wish to do so, you will just need to follow YouTube’s step-by-step uploading instructions and then your video should be ready for sharing, in as little as a few minutes.

Another pro to using YouTube to share your own videos with other internet users is uses. Although a large number of internet users use YouTube videos for fun or for personal reasons, there are many others who use them for business or at least to up their exposure. You need to remember that millions of internet users watch videos on YouTube. While your YouTube video will be unlikely to get one million views, you could get quite a bit. Whether you are advertising your services, like as a website designer or an online actress, you can do so through YouTube. The only thing that you will want to do is try to not take the spam approach. If you are advertising yourself as a website designer, try taking a few videos of you making a website or use your video to explore websites that you have made. Simply adding your business information at the end of the video is a great way to get your point across, but without making your YouTube video seem as it is an advertisement.

As you can see, there are a number of advantages and disadvantages, or pros and cons, to making your own YouTube videos. As stated above, it is advised that you use your best judgment. Of course, you can post a video on YouTube if you want to do so, but just make sure that you are doing so safely.
