Article Directories

Article Directories

The article directories are websites that house free articles. These articles are usually put there by whoever owns the copyright to them as a promotion method. Each article has the owners byline placed under it so that those who eventually read the article will know who wrote it (or at least who owns it) and will be able to get in contact with or visit their website for further information. Articles directories are a great place to put your articles so that they will make you money. By using this method, people who are interested in your product or service will see your article, view you as an expert in the subject, and will visit your website.

Even if you cannot write or do not have any knowledge on the subject on which you are promoting (for example for you run an affiliate website), you can always hire a writer to do the work for you. Getting quality articles written will be expensive up front, but they will pay for themselves in no time, either through affiliate sales or selling your own services, and everything from then on is pure profit. Let’s take a real life example. Imagine that you are an accountant working from home. You write an article on an accounting topic and place it on various article directories. Those who are looking for the subject you wrote about will read your article, see that you have the knowledge and skill that is needed to do a job for them, and visit your website or contact you via e-mail. Your article just gained you a new client who may use your services regularly, but will definitely give you a nice profit at least once.

Furthermore, since you have posted it on a free article directory, others who have affiliate websites about accounting will inevitably use your article for their website. Since they must attach your byline to it, this will bring you even more exposure for every website that re-posts your article. This because you will be benefiting of off the traffic that they get to their website.

There are numerous article directories out there for you to utilize. Your bet best is to put a copy of each of your articles on every one for maximum exposure. It will eventually help to bring more traffic and customers to your website, which will lead to new orders and more profit.

Biggest Challeneges for Entrepreneurs

Biggest Challeneges for Entrepreneurs

When I saw the January issue of Entrepreneur Magazine I was thrilled. Cover copy had a teaser on it to the effect that entrepreneurs had been surveyed and inside were their answers. I was certain that, finally, someone was paying attention to entrepreneurs who were striving for a successful business. It was time to hear from us little guys!

I can’t tell you how surprised I was as I began to read the article. Their idea of an “entrepreneur” and mine were as different as night and day. I always classified an entrepreneur as someone like the “Mom and Pop” coffee shop around the corner, the family run produce market in town, or the 18 to 24 year old who had come up with a fantastic “gizmo” and was scooped up into a corporation as their newest genius. Let me give you a quote from the article that will clue you into its idea of an “entrepreneur”.

To explain the method used for the survey they state, “Entrepreneur magazine and PricewaterhouseCoopers “Entrepreneurial Challenges Survey” is an annual telephone survey of more than 300 CEOs of privately held, U.S.-based businesses recognized for their sustained, rapid growth. They average $31.5 million in annual revenue with an average of 185 employees, and have an ongoing annual growth rate of more than 23 percent……”

That definitely was not my picture of an entrepreneur. I don’t know too many entrepreneurs who average $31.5 million annually, or employ 185 people. To me, that’s a pretty successful company on its way to being a corporation. We should all be such entrepreneurs!

At any rate, I continued reading and I must say the information was worth the read, and the business of doing business can apply to those of us who aren’t quite making that $31.5 million per year yet. Here’s what the survey discovered.

What were considered their biggest challenges for 2006?

  • 73% - Retention of key workers
  • 38% - Developing new products/services
  • 36% - Expansion to domestic markets
  • 35% - Increased productivity
  • 28% - Upgrading technology
  • 23% - Creating business alliances
  • 21% - Better management of cash flow
  • 14% - Expansion outside the U.S.
  • 13% - Improving risk management
  • 11% - Finding new financing
  • 11% - Buying another company or launching a spinoff
  • 7% - Preparing company for sale
  • 2% - Going public

Now when you stop and think about it, that’s pretty much what most entrepreneurs think about each year. Maybe not to the extent of expanding to foreign markets or launching a spinoff, but to keep your business perking along the road of improvement - all the rest are considered.

The next part of the survey was interesting because entrepreneurs were given a list of several “wild-card” factors that could affect business in 2006. When asked which three would be most harmful to their business, here’s what they said:

  • 47% - Unstable U.S. economy
  • 43% - Rising health-care costs
  • 41% - Shortage of qualified workers
  • 40% - Weak market demand
  • 24% - Rising oil/energy costs
  • 24% - Rising interest rates
  • 22% - New government regulations
  • 18% - Weaker capital spending
  • 14% - Weakening world economy
  • 12% - Increased global competition
  • 11% - Decreased access to capital
  • 10% - Sudden drop in U.S. real estate market
  • 10% - Tax increases
  • 9% - Inflation

So maybe my entrepreneurs and those surveyed are not really that much different in thinking. The outlook of most entrepreneurs is probably optimistic, or will be unless more unforeseen disasters strike.

Even after the huge devastation of 9/11, within two quarters we were back to the same level of optimism as we had before. People get used to dealing with tough circumstances and factor them in, but are not swayed by them. When you really think about it; isn’t that what most entrepreneurs are like?

If they’re not, then they aren’t entrepreneurs by my way of thinking.

Making Money with Articles: Niche Websites

Making Money with Articles: Niche Websites

Choosing a good niche subject to base your website around is one of the most important aspects of making money off of your articles. This will give you a foundation to build from and you can target one general audience with a pack of keywords that they are most likely to be searching for. You should take each one of these keywords and use it for the basis of one article on each page. This way, even though you are targeting one specific subject, you will be sure to interest a wide variety of people in that one niche. They may also find other pages that interest them, which will keep them returning to your site to learn new information about the niche subject.

The best way to find keywords for your niche subject is to use a keyword software program and type in the word that is the subject of your niche. This will generate a list of keywords or phrases that contain your niche and will also show you approximately how many people search for each word or phrase. Some software programs may also tell you how many sites are out there to compete with for each word or phrase (this will help you know if those sites are worth competing with for the number of searches out there). You then deicide which of these would be most profitable by determining which have the least amount of competitors, so that you have a chance at making it to the first or second page of search engine results, but that also have a decent amount of people looking for that keyword or phrase each month. These will be the keywords or phrases that you will base the pages of your niche site on.

If there are a number of topics that you like, pick the one that you feel would be easiest to start with and then, once that site is built and generating some revenue, you can start another site. The most profitable website marketers, who use their talent of finding niches and combining that with good site content and a handful of affiliate links, have a good amount and variety of niche sites that they have started. You are never limited in what you can do with niche website marketing, unless you find out that you do not have the marketing skills or the needed funding to make it happen. Otherwise, the sky is the limit!

Making Money with Articles: Free Article Content

Making Money with Articles: Free Article Content

Some webmasters try to use articles from free content directories to get visitors to their site and make some money. This is mostly important for those who have just begun working as an affiliate for several companies and do not yet have any funding, yet need to built small niche websites to visitors to their site so that they can begin making revenue.

Although this can sometimes be the only option for those who are running on a non-existent budget, it is not a way that will effectively build your website or revenue. There are a few potential reasons why this may be detrimental to your business building efforts.

Problem #1 - Search Engines

Search engines will only look down upon your site if it has the exact same duplicated content than other sites. The more sites that share your content, the less it will help you achieve good search engine rankings.

Good search engine rankings are essential in getting visitors to your sit so that they have a chance to click on your affiliate links. If you cannot even get visitors, then will never make an revenue. Working on the search engine optimization of your site so that you will eventually be high enough in the results to get customers, should be priority one.

Problem #2 - Getting visitors to click

Although getting your site high on search engine result pages and acquiring site visitors is hard work, unfortunately this is only half of the battle. You must also be able to convince those visitors to click on your affiliate links. If your visitors see the same content they have seen on a multitude of other sites, they will be least likely to click on your links. This is because most people want to buy things that are recommended by people that they trust or whom they feel like are an expert on the subject.

If your content is just duplicated from other sites, you will be exposed as someone who does not really know what they are talking about and therefore will not look heavily on your product recommendations. This will reduce the number of website visitors who will be willing to click through.

Problem #3 - Author Bylines

Most free content is only given to you if you agree to place the authors byline under the article (you can get into trouble if you try to use it without following the stipulated rules). This poses a problem because most author bylines include links. When a reader gets done reading a really intriguing article, there is a strong possibility that they will click on the author’s byline link rather than your affiliate links. This is the entire reason why these authors offer free content to begin with, so that they may get their name and links out there to the public. Using this type of content may mean shooting yourself in the foot and losing possible profitable website visitors.
Once you put these three problems together, you are looking at a serious decline in revenue simply because you used free website content from article directories. Although it may be the only option for some, if you have the funds to buy your own original content, then you should go this route. If you don’t have the finds, however, you may be better off writing your own content and then hiring professional services once you have made a profit to work with.

Making Money with Articles: What Kind of Experience Do I Need?

Making Money with Articles: What Kind of Experience Do I Need?

When you are trying to make money with articles, the beauty of it is that you don’t really need previous career related experience and that you can learn the ropes as you go. That being said, there are some skills that you will need to teach yourself or pick up along the way to make your sites successful. You can’t go in not knowing anything, not learning anything, and still expect to make a good income (or any income at all).

First, you will need to know how to pick out the correct articles to make your sites successful. There are many types of content, from free content to high dollar content, and each comes with its own advantages and disadvantages (although high dollar content is more likely to give you a successful site in the end).

Second, you will need to know how to choose keywords that can help you get a good amount of traffic, without being too competitive to get on the first or second page. If you choose highly competitive keywords that are used by large, mammoth website, you are likely to never get up to those much needed first two pages.

Third, you will need to know how to optimize your websites for various search engines. Search engine optimization skills will allow you to get high rankings for your chosen niche keywords, which will help to get visitors and make profit.

Fourth, if you opt for a large website that you will focus most of your internet marketing career on, you will also need to know how to market your website to your intended audience through paid banner ads and text links. If you prefer very small 2-5 page niche sites, then promoting all of them this way will not be cost effective and will eat up more profits than it is worth.

If you can capture some of these skills and attack them aggressively during your first few small websites or the first few months of a larger website, then you will eventually become an expert. Since you can learn the ropes first hand on your own, the only thing that you will need to do before you begin your new career is to read up on how to get started (maybe purchase an internet marketing e-book or two) and make sure that you have the funds available to start a small site.

How Professional Affiliate Programs Work

How Professional Affiliate Programs Work
By Aisha Danna Platinum Quality Author

If you have ever seen affiliate programs running in the websites, you will know that it is not an easy task at all. It requires a lot of practicing and a whole lot of planning and programming too. There are a lot of professional affiliate programs running in the website these days. A lot can be learnt and understood from these affiliate programs. Lets now have a look at some excellent affiliate program tips.

When thinking of setting an affiliate program, all professional affiliates think of first examining the product that they are going to market. This is an extremely important thing in an affiliate marketing program. The reason why this is important is because if the product is not effective enough, or if you are not comfortable marketing the product there is no point in marketing that product. Thus, it is highly recommended that you do c complete analysis of the product and only after you are satisfied and ready to market it, should you proceed with your marketing campaign.

Just selecting the product is not sufficient. It is also important that you do a complete value check of the product. This will tell you the demand of the product in the market and the kind of marketing it requires. It is not necessary that all products be of similar demand. Hence, according to their requirement and value in the market, the marketing strategy of the product also changes. This will give a correct direction to your affiliate program.

Once, the product and the strategy to market it is fixed, what is required next is a well designed website. The website should be designed in such a manner that the product is properly presented and an increasing number of people are interested in clicking on them. The designing and development of the affiliate network should not be similar to the original website, but should somehow reflect the connection between the two. You will earn only when people will click on your affiliate site to buy products of your buyer. So begin marketing your affiliate website rigorously in the search engines and across the web too. Exchange links, place banners, add contextual links etc to attract visitors.

The payment strategy must always be fixed before hand so that there is no last minute discussion and problem regarding the payment of the affiliate program.

How to Make Money Fast and Easy Online

How to Make Money Fast and Easy Online
By Denise Nuttall

Would you like to find a way to make money fast and easy online? Many people are looking for quick cash. There are several ways to make fast money legitimately online. I am only going to go into one way here. But if this does not sound like a fit for you, just keep searching they are all around. That is the power of the internet. There are so many choices right at your finger tips.

The way I make money fast is by taking online surveys. Before you start rolling your eyes, surveys do pay and are an easy way to make money fast. You will not get rich from taking surveys, nor is it a solid business model. It is simple tool to get started one day and make easy money online the next. How much more easily can it be than to get paid for your opinion? I am a mother of 5 grown children and I know about giving out my opinion. And it is free and unheeded most of the time. Taking surveys for major companies make me feel like I am having a say in what is happening in the market place and even in our world. These survey companies need people to help make them billions of dollars and they are willing to pay you for these opinions.

Avoid the scam survey companies. Join a paid survey program. The price is usually under $50, but you will not be wasting time trying to fine a legitimate survey company. The objective is to find a way to make money fast not waste time. Many times the very day you join a survey program, you will be making easy money that same day. My first day of joining a survey program and I signed up to a couple survey companies in their database, I made $25 cash and $40 in dinner for 2 coupons to a local restaurant. Now that was making easy money fast.

I am not getting rich doing online surveys but I do take my survey taking seriously. I make enough money now that I do not work outside my home. The surveys are fun to do and I can do them any time of the day. Usually I do some first thing in the morning and maybe a couple in the afternoon and then several in the evening. I do not sit and do this for 8 hours a day. For me this is the best way to make money fast and easy online.

Just A Few Ways To Make Money Quick On The Internet

Just A Few Ways To Make Money Quick On The Internet
By Brian McCoy Platinum Quality Author

Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to make money quick on the internet. If you have some experience online, patience, and persistence, you can definitely make money online in a number of ways. You just need to decide which way you will use. In this business, you wield the control; the faster you decide to take action to make money online, the faster you will get the money.

The first step is deciding if you want to sell a product or service online. Products are usually more popular, as there seems to be more options. Whatever you choose, make sure that you are passionate about your product or service, and ensure that you know a lot about it. This will make it easier to sell, as you can answer questions about it faster.

You also need to decide if you want to make money quick on the internet just once, or continually use it to eventually make a living. For most people, it is the latter, as they want to get out of their dead end job. Most people would rather work from home, bypassing rush hour everyday and the general stress of a job that they are not even interested in. If you would like to share a product or service that you are passionate about with the world, then selling it online is the way to go.

You need to make sure that your chosen product or service is unique, making it easier to sell. You do not want to create yet another oversold product that is the same as everything else. It is important to develop a useful product or service that will make people sure that they need it and cannot pass it up. However, creating such a product could take time if you have no ideas to begin with.

If you truly need money fast, you could start off with affiliate marketing, in which you sell an already created product online, making money through commission only. You may not make as much money in the long run as you would with your own product, but it is faster and good for beginners.

Once you either create your product or decide to become an affiliate, you need to market the item by writing and distributing articles and blogs about issues related to the product. This will encourage people to come to your website and purchase the product.

Most internet businesses take awhile to really take off, which is when you will make the most money, but as explained, you can always make fast money simply by marketing a product or service from home.

Work From Home Legitimate Opportunities

Work From Home Legitimate Opportunities
By Brian McCoy Platinum Quality Author

Just by virtue of being online, you are probably bombarded with advertisements of work from home jobs everyday. Some of them may have piqued your curiosity, but before joining any of these offers, you need to know ways to tell the difference between scams and work from home legitimate opportunities. There are so many scams out there, but there are plenty of stable, flexible careers to perform from home, as well. Do not pass these up because you are wary of scams online, as you could be passing up a perfectly good way to make money online from home.

One way to tell if a supposed opportunity is a scam is deciding whether or not it seems too good to be true. If it does, then it most likely is. If an advertisement promises that you will make thousands overnight, or millions within a year, it is a scam. No job allows you to do that unless you either invent an amazing product or become a CEO of a major company. Online opportunities are a great way to build wealth, but it won't happen overnight. Otherwise, wouldn't everyone be rich?

If a work from home opportunity advertisement claims that you can make money doing nothing, that is another sign to run far away from this "opportunity." Why would anyone pay you to do nothing? They could do nothing by themselves, without having to pay anyone. Such an opportunity is not realistic, and will likely leave you worse off than you started.

Most work from home legitimate opportunities offer lots of information to prospects before they join, and plenty of support once they make a commitment. If a company seems to be hiding something and will not freely give out information about what you will be doing, what the pay is, etc, it is probably a scam. Trust your gut feelings if you are not sure about a company. They could be keeping certain information confidential for a reason, but chances are they are not.

Overall, be sure to research any company before joining it. This will allow you to figure out if a company is a scam or not.
