I’mmmmmmmm Back!

Posted on December 13, 2008. Filed under: Announcements |

Wow, it’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you, without some strong tips to save you….

Think of how many weak blogs you’ve been through…

Times up…I’m sorry I kept you.

Thinking of this…

Aw shucks…that little snippet was my version of an old rap song from the 90’s.

Kudo’s goes out to eric B and Rakim.

Moving on….

I haven’t posted to this blog in well over a year.

And honestly I wasn’t really sure if I should come back.

But I always kept track of the visitors to this blog…and boy am I impressed.

Over the past year this little blog continued to get vistors on a steady basis.

While working on my other blogs I decided that I should go back to my roots.

And here I am.

Armed with even more deadly marketing tactics, tools and tips.

I’ll be giving you the heads up on what’s working online and what’s not.

However, I must let you in on something first.

I’m doing this with a thought in mind.

That thought isĀ  in giving you useful information I ‘d like for you to visit my other projects.

There’s nothing for you to buy….yet (wink)

Just information for you to feed on.

You won’t be dis-appointed.

In the mean time stay tuned…

Want to know how people with small opt in lists make money off of their subscribers?

Posted on August 6, 2007. Filed under: Announcements |

When I first started building my very small opt in list years ago…

I didn’t really have a clue as to how I would make it grow bigger.

All I knew is that everyone that I talked to said that I needed to have a list so I did just that.

But instead of building my list through content..I did the unthinkable.

Yes..I purchased my list.

Thinking that was the fastest way to success…

When in reality it was the slowest and most expensive way to creating a list.

What I didn’t really know and understand back then was how important it was to have a list of people who wanted what you had to offer and not just having the ability to buy their name off of a list and make them offers.

But I was young and wet behind the ears.

I know how to do things much differently now of ccourse.

However..I realize that some of you out there still don’t have a clue as to how to get over the hump and reach success.

What I’m about to offer you here is something that I wish I had been offered back when I was starting to build not only my list..but my business as well.

And that is..a success coach.

That’s what I am now offering you for free..

Think of it as your way to avoid making so many mistakes and how you can better use your cash.

I’ve made mistakes in the past and I still make them today.

But there is a big difference.

Not to brag here..but I can afford to make them now.

Back then I couldn’t.

Every dollar was accounted for…

Anyhow..you can take advantage of my free coaching by scooting on over to:

http://keirsmith.wordpress.com/

Oh..and the real secret to making money off of a small list is know how to make the right offers to them..

I will be showing you how to do just that over at my newest blog.

Going, Going, Gone..No Traffic Means No Sales

Posted on June 28, 2007. Filed under: Announcements |

How can you do it?

How can you get traffic to your website and increase the number of subscribers to your opt in list?

The simple answer could lie in social networks.

But I’m not talking about myspace or digg.

I’m thinking out of the box here.

Why not start your own social network.

You can get some really good exposure and traffic by having a place where goups of people can meet online.

“But what about the cost Keir”

What cost.

I’m going to give you a site that lets you start your network for free.

It’c called ning.com

I love this little site.

It’s not as big as myspace and the others yet…but it certainly has the potential to get big fast.

The one thing you’ll have to keep in mind is that unless you have your own web address you’ll have to use one of theirs which has their name in it.

But, that’s a small price to pay for the use of their site.

I created scrollsofprosperity.ning.com

It’s a place for anyone who wants to know about the methods used to build wealth.

And the site allows you to put up video…although currently only from google, or youtube..

That is unless you have your own video.

Mp3 music if you want.

Scrolling pics.

A forum

A blog.

You can link your blog to your site so that whenever you have a new post your social network will be instantly updated for everyone to see.

You could put up links to your lead capture page.

You could create a social ring of sites where you can offer other members sites as places to sign up.

If you decide to do that though make sure you use an incentive that they can find only on that other site and is original.

You can even use the information you find here.

You get the idea.

That’s all for now.

What’s Wrong With Your Website Traffic?

Posted on June 22, 2007. Filed under: Announcements |

How many new visitors did you get to your site yesterday?

I’m curious to what your answer will be..

How come?

Because I have any easy way for you to start building your traffic to your site and to start taking advantage of some of the web. 2.0 tools.

Like social networks.

Yeah, you’ve head about them.

Myspace, youtube…

The rage and fuss about these sites is that they are great places to find targeted traffic.

When people stop in for a visit at these sites…they tend to stay a lot longer than they would at other sites.

Why?

Mostly for entertainment purposes.

But going beyond that.

Imagine the amount of targeted traffic that these sites get.

If you owned the site.

Do you think your income would shoot up from placing a few ads in there?

But most people don’t realize that they can benefit just like the owners of these site do.

“Ah, you’re crazy Keir, I don’t even know how to go about starting my own social network”

That’s funny.

Because in case you’ve never heard of this site I’m about to gift you with..then you must have been hiding under a rock or something.

Anyways..the social networking site ning gives you your own chance for traffic immortality.

I started my own network called scrollsofprosperity.ning.com

It’s just a baby.

But I’ll be in there quite often…

And you should be there too.

No erase that.

You should join my network..

then start your own network..

and then let me know the name of your new network so I can sign up.

Like minds working together for one cause…success.

That’s all for now

Posted on June 16, 2007. Filed under: Announcements |

Well, for all of the fathers out there enjoying having the weekend off..

Anyhow…

More Updates For You….

Posted on June 12, 2007. Filed under: Announcements |

Here’s your brief update for today…

Things are moving along pretty well with my new secret site.

Everyday it get’s a little bit closer to being revealed to the public.

However….I’ve made enough progress now to begin to look for cntributing authors.

So listen up.

If you have experience in any of the following subjects then send me an email to let me know.

Copywriting

Autoresponders

Email marketing

Internet marketing

Blogging

Product creation

List building

I have some really exciting things planned for you if you are chosen.

I say if you are chosen because there will be 2 types of authors for the site.

1. The guest

2. The regular

Although both can contribute…only the regular author will have access to the business building and monitization process I will be adding later.

The guest author at this moment will only be allowed to contribute content with no access to the:

1. List building feature.

This one is really cool. I actually let you build your own list inside of my business model in which if you decide to leave, you get to keep all of the names you’ve generated. Who else does that?

2. The recurring income generation.

Think “deliberate” income. I’m not in the money selling business. Let everyone else do that. But I’m smart enough not to pass up a chance for recurring passive income when I can get it. And if I can get…then you will get too.

3. The optimized business training.

You can buy product after product that promises to make you the next internet millionaire. But does the person you buy the product from actually give you the blueprints to how it’s really done?

Nope.

But I will.

The blueprint I will be sharing with you is the same one that business giants like Microsoft, Aol, Yahoo, Oprah, Costco, Sams, Dr. Phil, Rachel Ray have used and are still using to this very day to build their businesses.

Imagine telling that know it all friend of yours that you know the secret business model that Oprah Winfrey uses like clockwork to build her content empire.

Now I’m not saying that you will become a billionaire once I reveal the business model to you…

I don’t know you well enough to say that…

But you will know how they did it and how you can put it to work for you as well.

Plus you’ll have access to rest of the business building tools that will added on a regular basis.

Does that sound cool or what?

So…if I’ve peaked your interest a little…then you can send me an email describing what kind of experience you have.

Here’s the address to send it to.

maverick2332@lycos.com

That’s all for now.

Breaking News….This Just In

Posted on June 6, 2007. Filed under: Announcements |

We interupt your regularly scheduled reading for this breaking news!

If you’ve been reading this blog over the last few months..then you’ve probably heard me mention that I was considering coming out with some new products that I would be creating myself.

Well, I’m currently in the process of creating an online magazine that would be centered around the world of internet marketing.

My friends tell me that I’m nut’s for doing this…

It’s time consuming…

It’s labor intensive…

And who knows what else…

But who cares…

I have information that I want to give to the masses.

The title for it is being kept under wraps for now.

But I’m working on the content arrangement and layout.

It will have articles and resources in there that will be from some names online that you will recognize..and then there will be some names in there that you might not now…but who still have some good ideas to give you.

Now..there is a catch to it..

It just wouldn’t be any fun if there wasn’t one now would it?

The catch is that it’s free…and in order for it to stay free..and for me to be able to continue to give you free articles..I will need readership.

That’s where you come in.

Just a quick mention to your friends about it will do.

I don’t need you to sell it…just to read it and spread the word.

That’s not asking for much.

Good solid useful content that you get for free just for letting your buddies know about it.

And I bet that you thought I was going to charge you for it.

Right now…I’m moving forward with plans for it to be free.

There are other way’s for monetizing it that I will consider later on.

As of right now…the launch date will be in mid july.

That will depend on a few things that I will need to make this run smoothly as possible that I’ve been promised to receive…

I have plans in place just in case… but they will require more time to implement.

Anyhow…as I have more information and updates available for you I will release it here.

So stay tuned.

That’s all for now.

Breaking News: New Product Just Released From Blog Mastermind

Posted on May 30, 2007. Filed under: Announcements, Free Articles For You To Use |

I have an article for you that you can post on your .

It’s hot of the presses.

And what makes this article so cool is that while it’s sitting there on your blog..it can actually morph into a profit generator for you.

But first…I have a few administration procedures to follow.

As you probably know…this article has a affiliate link attached at the bottom.

And of course when anyone clicks on the link and visits the site and later purchases anything from it…that commission goes to me.

But I’d rather see you get a commission for this article.

Why?

Because you’re the one placing it on your blog.

You’re the one letting your readers know that you have something “new” for them to sink their teeth into.

Not me..

So why not get paid for your time

That’s only fair right?

well…you can receive the recurring comission check for yourself.

But only if you become an affiliate member.

Now don’t go all awol on me here with this.

It’s free..

And so many of you out there are complaining about not making any money online..and how much time you’ve spent on promoting products with nothing to show for it.

Well..it’s time to start finally making some cash by promoting the right products.

By promoting what people want and need and not what you think they need.

It’s a big difference.

By promoting the tools that people need to become successful you can piggyback on their success.

Because when they reach their goals using your tools..they will tell anyone who will listen.

Which means free advertising for you.

It’s a win – win situation.

But only if you act now.

Procrastination kills success.

Anyhow..

Here is your article.

—Beigin Article———

In every bloggers life comes a special day – the day they first launch a new blog. Now unless you went out and purchased someone else’s blog chances are your blog launched with only one very loyal reader – you. Maybe a few days later you received a few hits when you told your sister, father, girlfriend and best friend about your new blog but that’s about as far you went when it comes to finding readers.

Here are the top 10 techniques new bloggers can use to find readers. These are tips specifically for new bloggers, those people who have next-to-no audience at the moment and want to get the ball rolling.

It helps if you work on this list from top to bottom as each technique builds on the previous step to help you create momentum. Eventually once you establish enough momentum you gain what is called “traction”, which is a large enough audience base (about 500 readers a day is good) that you no longer have to work too hard on finding new readers. Instead your current loyal readers do the work for you through word of mouth.

Top 10 Tips

10. Write at least five major “pillar” articles. A pillar article is usually a tutorial style article aimed to teach your audience something. Generally they are longer than 500 words and have lots of very practical tips or advice. This article you are currently reading could be considered a pillar article since it is very practical and a good “how-to” lesson. This style of article has long term appeal, stays current (it isn’t news or time dependent) and offers real value and insight. The more pillars you have on your blog the better.

9. Write one new blog post per day minimum. Not every post has to be a pillar, but you should work on getting those five pillars done at the same time as you keep your blog fresh with a daily news or short article style post. The important thing here is to demonstrate to first time visitors that your blog is updated all the time so they feel that if they come back tomorrow they will likely find something new. This causes them to bookmark your site or subscribe to your blog feed.

You don’t have to produce one post per day all the time but it is important you do when your blog is brand new. Once you get traction you still need to keep the fresh content coming but your loyal audience will be more forgiving if you slow down to a few per week instead. The first few months are critical so the more content you can produce at this time the better.

8. Use a proper domain name. If you are serious about blogging be series about what you call your blog. In order for people to easily spread the word about your blog you need an easily rememberable domain name. People often talk about blogs they like when they are speaking to friends in the real world (that’s the offline world, you remember that place right?) so you need to make it easy for them to spread the word and pass on your URL. Try and get a .com if you can and focus on small easy to remember domains rather than worry about having the correct keywords (of course if you can get great keywords and easy to remember then you’ve done a good job!).

7. Start commenting on other blogs. Once you have your pillar articles and your daily fresh smaller articles your blog is ready to be exposed to the world. One of the best ways to find the right type of reader for your blog is to comment on other people’s blogs. You should aim to comment on blogs focused on a similar niche topic to yours since the readers there will be more likely to be interested in your blog.

Most blog commenting systems allow you to have your name/title linked to your blog when you leave a comment. This is how people find your blog. If you are a prolific commentor and always have something valuable to say then people will be interested to read more of your work and hence click through to visit your blog.

6. Trackback and link to other blogs in your blog posts. A trackback is sort of like a blog conversation. When you write a new article to your blog and it links or references another blogger’s article you can do a trackback to their entry. What this does is leave a truncated summary of your blog post on their blog entry – it’s sort of like your blog telling someone else’s blog that you wrote an article mentioning them. Trackbacks often appear like comments.

This is a good technique because like leaving comments a trackback leaves a link from another blog back to yours for readers to follow, but it also does something very important – it gets the attention of another blogger. The other blogger will come and read your post eager to see what you wrote about them. They may then become a loyal reader of yours or at least monitor you and if you are lucky some time down the road they may do a post linking to your blog bringing in more new readers.

5. Encourage comments on your own blog. One of the most powerful ways to convince someone to become a loyal reader is to show there are other loyal readers already following your work. If they see people commenting on your blog then they infer that your content must be good since you have readers so they should stick around and see what all the fuss is about. To encourage comments you can simply pose a question in a blog post. Be sure to always respond to comments as well so you can keep the conversation going.

4. Submit your latest pillar article to a blog carnival. A blog carnival is a post in a blog that summarizes a collection of articles from many different blogs on a specific topic. The idea is to collect some of the best content on a topic in a given week. Often many other blogs link back to a carnival host and as such the people that have articles featured in the carnival enjoy a spike in new readers.

To find the right blog carnival for your blog, do a search at http://blogcarnival.com/.

3. Submit your blog to blogtopsites.com. To be honest this tip is not going to bring in a flood of new readers but it’s so easy to do and only takes five minutes so it’s worth the effort. Go to Blog Top Sites, find the appropriate category for your blog and submit it. You have to copy and paste a couple of lines of code on to your blog so you can rank and then sit back and watch the traffic come in. You will probably only get 1-10 incoming readers per day with this technique but over time it can build up as you climb the rankings. It all helps!

2. Submit your articles to EzineArticles.com. This is another tip that doesn’t bring in hundreds of new visitors immediately (although it can if you keep doing it) but it’s worthwhile because you simply leverage what you already have – your pillar articles. Once a week or so take one of your pillar articles and submit it to Ezine Articles. Your article then becomes available to other people who can republish your article on their website or in their newsletter.

How you benefit is through what is called your “Resource Box”. You create your own resource box which is like a signature file where you include one to two sentences and link back to your website (or blog in this case). Anyone who publishes your article has to include your resource box so you get incoming links. If someone with a large newsletter publishes your article you can get a lot of new readers at once.

1. Write more pillar articles. Everything you do above will help you to find blog readers however all of the techniques I’ve listed only work when you have strong pillars in place. Without them if you do everything above you may bring in readers but they won’t stay or bother to come back. Aim for one solid pillar article per week and by the end of the year you will have a database of over 50 fantastic feature articles that will work hard for you to bring in more and more readers.

“There’s Nothing New To Learn Here…So Scoot On..”

Posted on May 14, 2007. Filed under: Announcements |

Ok..

If your opt in list building skills rivals that of an immature 6th grader…

Then you should leave….

Because my next post won’t do you any good….

I like working with people who at least have the drive to make some money online using their opt in lists..

Too many people keep asking me for the latest get rich quick scheme.

“Boo -hoo…”

“Keir I could really use the extra money..but I can’t afford to wait…I need it now”

Tough….go rob a bank.

I don’t do get rich quick…

Sorry wrong blog..

Listen up…

I’ve got some really interesting stuff I’ll be revealing.

But you won’t find it on my website…

You won’t find it on my subscriber list either…

So don’t look for them.

Instead…put the remote down and drop by here…

Oh and before I forget…to all you know- it- alls who are already raking in 6 figures…

don’t drop by…you’re already to good to learn anything new here…

Until next time.
