SEO expert Grawolf (AKA Micheal Gray) was interviewed this week. Find out what he has to say about SEO at The SEO Interviews – Part 2.

Burt has found a New Monetisation Scheme. It’s always a good idea to scope out what is successful to see if you can add it to your portfolio of Internet Real Estate.

I found Jon’s How To Speak Robots article useful. Something I’ve always meant to learn about, but never got around to. Looks like a good primer without being too geeky.

Scientific Advertising

Have you heard of Scientific Advertising?

I’ve been reading a fair bit about copywriting recently – I’m currently reading The Copywriter’s Handbook: A Step-by-step Guide to Writing Copy That Sells.

Why? Because I reckon it must be a primary driver for website traffic For instance, wherever your traffic is coming from, it is depending mainly on your headline, then introductory paragraph, and then the layout and delivery or your content.

Recently I bought The Definitive Guide To Google Adwords as part of Perry Marshalls Renaissance Club. This deal includes several CD’s containing conversations and teleseminars with various successful people who are mainly involved in some kind of internet business.

Anyhow, there is a book called Scientific Advertising, by Claude C. Hopkins, that is mentioned a lot in the CD’s and newsletters.

Turns out that Scientific Advertising is a bit of an advertising classic. It was written over 80 years ago, yet contains as much as you need to know about advertising as you ever will. Covering the fundamental principles and requirements in a highly condensed 80 (approx) pages.

Now here’s thegood news. If I have interested you enough in reading Scientific Advertising, then you don’t have to bother about going out to buy it.

You can just download Scientific Advertising here (click the link) in PDF format for absolutely nothing!

Right, time to go off on a tangent now. If you trade stocks, futures, options or invest in financial markets, then you may have heard of Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. This book was also written over 80 years ago and probably contains some of the most useful advice you could ever read about trading financial instruments.

KeePass Password Safe

KeePass Password Safe ImageIf you are going to start dabbling with Internet Marketing, then the chances are that you are going to end up with a whole heap of websites that need passwords and you are not going to be able to remember all of the username/password combinations for your Affiliate Programs off the top of your head.

Keeping them ‘safe’ in something like a spreadsheet probably isn’t a good idea – even if the document is password protected.

My suggestion is KeePass Password Safe as a solution to this problem.

KeePass Password Safe is a free, open-source Windows application that stores your passwords in a strongly encrypted database (only a single file).

You can stash all your important passwords into a single encrypted file that is locked with one single password. So you only have to remember this password. Don’t write it on a Post-It note stuck to your monitor though.

And here is a really cool thing about KeePass Password Safe. You can load the whole program and data file onto a USB memory stick and just carry it around with you so you can access your passwords on whichever PC you are using.

I.E. You can run KeePass Password Safe from the USB key – I think this sort of software is called a Portable App.

If you find that you are accumulating more passwords than braincells, then give KeePass Password Safe. It is free, so you have nothing to lose – but your passwords ;) .

If you remain unconvinced about it’s effectiveness, then you can read all the Security Blurb Here.

Increase Your Traffic With Website Stickiness

In Web Traffic Is The Key To Success, I explained how increased traffic leads to increased success.

Another way to boost your traffic is to implement Website Stickiness.

In a nutshell, Website Stickiness is a term used to describe how your website visitors stay at your website and view as much information as possible.

There are a number of ways that you can implement Website Stickiness on your site. You could try the following:

  1. Intra-Linking – This is where you link to other parts of your website from an individual article. I did it here in the first sentence of this article.
  2. Categories – Categorise each of your articles. Make it easy for visitors to view articles on similar topics. The second sentence of this article links to my Traffic Building category.
  3. Recommend – After each article, point visitors to recommended articles of similar content.

Another good exercise is to be aware of what you do when you visit a new website. What is it that makes you stay there? What do they do to increase their Website Stickiness?

Website Traffic Is The Key To Success

Here is a simple and obvious statement. To achieve success in the Internet Marketing game, you must get Website Traffic.

OK, this is not a revelation and I don’t proclaim to be the first person to say this. However, It is a simple fact that making money from websites is a numbers game – and that number is website traffic in the form of visitors.

So success is simple. All you have to do is get as many visitors as possible. How? I’ll be covering various methods in my Website Traffic Building Category as my blog progresses. So make sure you keep coming back. Or even better Subscribe Here to be kept up to date.

Here is a really simple example of how it works.

I have a really super niche website that gets about 30 visitors a day coming almost exlusively from the search engines. This website took about 4 hours to set up. I do no work on this website anymore, it just sits there and makes me some money each month all by itself.

It makes money in two ways:

  1. Google Adsense
  2. Amazon.com

I know that as long as I get visitors it will make money. I know this because of my website statistics, Adsense statistics, and Amazon Affiliate statistics.

I know that for a certain amount of visitors that come to my website, I will make more than $20 from Adsense.

I also know that for every 100 visitors that click through to the Amazon.com products that I am promoting, 4 will buy at least one product and I will make between $10 and $20 per sale.

If you do your sums, you will see that I will never get rich from this website alone. I know that.

But what would happen if I created 100 of these websites for different niches, or I increased the traffic???

You see, it all depends on numbers. If you have a website that is monetized and you get visitors, then you will make money.

Affiliate Marketing

Most of what I write here at Internet Wealth Master is generally about Affiliate Marketing and related subjects.

Affiliate Marketing on the internet happens when you promote somebody elses product and receive a commission each time someone buys that product after being reffered to the sales website by your affiliate link.

The most popular method of Affiliate Marketing is to promote other peoples products on your own website.

However, this is not the only way to do it, there are several other ways that you can do Affiliate Marketing – You can use Pay Per Click programs such as Google Adwords (see Beating Adwords and Wealthy Affiliate), Article Marketing websites such as Ezine Articles or GoArtilces, and classified ad sites such as US Free Ads.

How To Get Started With Affiliate Marketing

Here is a basic blueprint on how to get started with Affiliate Marketing:

  1. Find a suitable product with an Affiliate Program.
  2. Sign up for their Affiliate Program to get your Affiliate Links.
  3. Set up your website, PPC campaign, or other form of advertising.
  4. Promote their product on your website using your Affiliate Link.

Wealthy Affiliate Review

Wealthy Affiliate Review ImageLast week I posted my review or Beating Adwords. Today, I’m going to post my Wealthy Affiliate Review.

Wealthy Affiliate is a sort of sister product to Beating Adwords. It is produced by the same two guys, Kyle and Carson, but instead of being a downloadable ebook, Wealthy Affiliate is a members only affiliate marketing website that aims to coach you to success in internet marketing.

What Is Wealthy Affiliate?

The contents of the Wealthy Affiliate website consists of:

  • Affiliate Marketing & Advertising Tutorials – Enough material is provided here to provide a novice with the essential knowledge of this subject. Fresh ideas are also provided for people who are already experienced.
  • Video Tutorials – These show you around Google Adwords and explain how to set up an account and campaign. These would be really useful to a Google Adwords beginner.
  • Keyword Lists – There are several keyword lists that contain many keywords each. Each of these lists is provided with relevant affiliate products. You could easily set up some campaigns with these immediately.
  • Private Forums – Newbies and successful marketers gather at the forums to seek and provide advice.
  • 1 on 1 Coaching – Kyle and Carson will answer emails promptly to help you out with your campaigns. If you want to, they will log into your Adwords account to give you advice on your campaign. This helped me out a lot on my first campaign (remember to change your passwords afterwards!).

There is a whole load of other resources such as free landing page templates, case studies, and courses that I won’t go into here because it will take too much time. Visit the Wealthy Affiliate Website to find out more.

The primary method taught by Wealthy Affiliate is the PPC – Affiliate Marketing technique, whereby you promote affiliate products through Pay Per Click programs with the desired outcome of spending less on advertising than you make in commissions.

Wealthy Affiliate does not claim to make you rich overnight, but sets out a strategy for building your income over time – with goals of reaching several thousand per month after about 1 year. Many of the subscibers who take part in the private forums are achieving this and helping people who are not.

Is It Worth Joining Wealthy Affiliate?

If you are a seasoned pro at Google Adwords, then you would probably not learn much that is new to you (allthough it might be worth just joining for a month to have a poke around).

If however you are thinking of starting out with Google Adwords or PPC/Affiliate Marketing then I would definitely encourage you to join. I have been a member for a few months now and have no reason to cancel in the near future. I make more money from the ideas I get and utilize than the $29 a month that I am paying.

I have also learned a couple of other techniques from members of the private forum that are nothing to do with PPC, but are earning me extra money.
