How Do I Make Sales With My Blog or Video? 4 Easy Steps

cyril

If you are old school, like me, it took me at least a solid year before I even knew what a “PINTEREST” was…

 

Pin what?

 

A pic of what? Isn’t that for the younger people? You know, the kids that are always on their cell phone looking at pictures of cool frogs and boys and such…

 

Boy, was I wrong..

 

I have been spending hours in the site called PINTEREST until I am bleary-eyed, but I discovered another WORLD, literally of bloggers who make thousands of dollars just by sharing images on this one site…not to mention Twitter and the rest.

 

Remember, how we talked about picking 1 or 2 sources of traffic and focusing on that?

 

For now, I am focusing on these 3 powerhouses since you can start a blog today, and get thousands of visitors from Google Plus, Twitter and Pinterest.

 

My favorite this week is Pinterest because it is getting the most traffic of images I am sharing.

 

I found several blogs on Pinterest that got between 10,000 – 20,000 visitors.

 

Today, I  just heard about a tool that is brand new that lets you create an image in BULK and upload it to 12 different social sites with just a few clicks (including Pinterest), so I’m IN.

 

Why? It takes hours to do this stuff manually, and I have family stuff going on (who doesn’t?) and I need to save time.

 

If you have a blog..this will come in really handy to save you loads of time.

 

I’m going to be using it today to share our new Member’s blog all over the internet.

 

But, if you don’t have a blog and want to make some Halloween cash, you could simply follow this easy 4 STEP PLAN:

 

Halloweengaz

 

 

1. Take the Halloween themed PLR packs found here and upload the S C A R Y images and articles to Blogger.com (free blog site).

 

2. Insert your Halloween Amazon links.

 

3. Use this Social Sharing tool to blast out your content all over the internet.

 

4. For more added traffic, you could create awesome videos with either one ofthese really cool video creators called Easy Sketch Pro that lets you add LIVE LINKS inside your video:

easysketchprodoodle

or

Video Vibe Pro

videovibepro1

 

This way you can start getting your Halloween and Christmas videos out there before the BUYING FRENZY begins with the holiday rush.

 

Your next step is to share those videos and your blogs with this easy viral social sharing tool.

 

Think of it as planting seeds all over the internet that can fill up your Amazon account with sales.

 

What I like about this new tool called Instaviral is that you buy it once, and use it forever.  Most tools like this one require a monthly fee.

 

The other feature I like about InstaViral is that there are other similar tools online that do all of these functions, but I haven’t found one that does it all in one dashboard that is web-based (which means you don’t have to download it to your computer).

 

And that’s always a good thing. I’m going to be using InstaViral to share this blog post all over the internet.  Why? This is the very reason I got online in the first place.  I wanted to leverage the power of the world-wide internet. This tool makes that job so much simpler.

When a piece of software or internet tool allows me to leverage the power of the world-wide internet, I love it. That’s always a very good thing! Kristie Chiles-Arp

 

 

52 Outstanding Headlines + A 6 Steps Daily Action Plan

I do a lot of research across the internet and when I come across Resources like this one, I jump on it and learn. Next, you can have all the gold in the world, but if you don’t spend it, it’s useless to you.

 

This is gold, pure gold. You will have to go to this link and optin into Jon’s list, but it will be well-worth it to get his 52 Headline Hacks. Then, scroll down and I would suggest that if you want to change your life, by building a list of subscribers, you use this Daily Action Plan.

 

Download his list and study them. You can find his blog and information here:

http://boostblogtraffic.com/?utm_source=headlinehacks&utm_medium=pdf&utm_campaign=headline-hacks

 

Daily Action Plan

 

  1. Print out 1 from the Headline Hacks PDF you downloaded and keep them in front of you.
  2. Pick 1 Headline for the Day or Week and Write An Article
  3. Take that Article and Publish It On A Blog, then share your blog post/page on Google Plus, Blogger.com, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Stumbleupon. Don’t get stuck here. If you do reach a wall, keep moving on the next social site, but initially you will have to sign up for each of these for free. Also, always remember that you can go to Youtube or Google and SEARCH for any question you need to know and you are likely to find your answer in one of those places..
  4. Take that same Article and use free screenshare below and create a video reading the article out loud and invite them at the beginning, middle and end to get on your mailing list for more great tips. Use the free Screenshare tool called Http://Screencast-o-matic.com.
  5. Share the Youtube video on all the Free SHARE sites underneath your video and then take the URLS or web addresses of each site you are sharing on such as Blogger.com and BEFORE you hit PUBLISH or share, copy the URL at the top of the share site and ping it with Masspinger.com.
  6. Be sure to share your Article and Youtube videos and each shared URL with the same keyword with the free pinger at Masspinger.com.

 

Here’s a screenshot of a youtube video that I shared on Google+ and then pinged with masspinger.com. It works like gangbusters to get Google Page 1 listings for many long-tailed keywords, so use Google’s free tools to get you visitors to your Youtube video, your blog and eventually you will see your first subscriber. That day will be a red-letter day to celebrate and you should!

Amazing Income Reports and Why You Should Start Your Own Blog

If you want to have a business online cranking out for you for years to come, you have to start your own hosted blog, like this one.

 

Here’s a screenshot of some of the most successful blogs on the internet to get your creative mind sparking in the right direction.

 

Website:  The Huffington Post   Ariana Huffington Daily Income: $29,896 Value: $21.82 Million

Mashable                       Pete Cashmore       Daily Income: $15,781  Value: $11.52 Million

Techcrunch                  Michael Arrington  Daily Income: $14,816  Value $10.82 Million

So, that sounds like a good investment of time and energy, where do you start?

 

Can you start out with a free blog? Yes, but you have NO control over Google or anyone else spamming it or taking it down after you’ve worked so hard to get it up there and write about your favorite topic.

Okay, so where do you start? First, get a domain name. You can get a free domain with this company, and they offer good support too.

What should your domain be?  

 

Here are the Criteria:

  1. It should be an interesting name that gives the visitor some idea of what you are going to be talking about on your blog.
  2. It should be a .com which are more valuable some day when you become famous =) and want to sell it for a retirement nest egg.
  3. It should be about something that has products that people buy in a passionate niche, not just for information sake only. Examples are: Health, Wealth, Spiritual Topics, Toys, Garden Tools, How To Ebooks, and any of thousands of products like you see as hot selling on Amazon.

 

SEO experts used to suggest that buying a domain name, especially with the .com, was golden to get the most exposure, but those wild west days are over.  

 

Nowadays, it is the value of your content and how it is shared all over social media that rank it highly. Plus, the websites that link to yours are also important, but if you are just starting out, the best tip I can give you is to provide information and good, valuable content that you would like to read yourself.  Let the search engines find you naturally.

There is also paid traffic, like Facebook ads, and I don’t recommend many of those, but one that is outstanding is this course on starting with 5 dollars a day.  Truly, if you are just starting out, you want to follow the advice found here and be careful with your advertising money.  I wouldn’t throw advertising dollars at Facebook, until you study this expert’s path.  He has already been down the road, so you don’t have to. Check it out.

 

Otherwise, keep your day job until your blog has replaced your monthly income and perhaps a bit more, to be on the safe side.  

 

It starts with a Domain Name that you can get free here, when you sign up for their hosting.  What is hosting? The company that keeps your website up running on the internet with it’s virtual files stores on their computer or “servers.”

 

But, let’s go back to what you should build your blog about….Keep in mind that just because I think a blue-eyed, coarse-haired dog of a rare, pedigree is the most fascinating thing on the planet, there might only be a handful of people in the world that agree with me or could care less!

My point is you need to find a “niche” or subject that people are crazy about in the sense that they think about that topic all day long and all night long.  It is such a “bother” to them, that they scour the internet for a solution to the problem.  

What are some prime examples?

I’m losing my hair.

I want to get my Ex-husband, Ex-wife, Ex-boyfriend, Ex-girlfriend back, but I keep pushing them further away every day.

I have these awful warts on my hand.

I have this embarassing______ (odor/spot/bumps) that I can’t get rid of, but I’m too ashamed to go the doctor.

How do I change my diet because the doctor just diagnosed me as “Diabetic.”

*How do I make money with my computer late at night after my job?

*How do stop my puppy from smelling up our house because I can’t pottytrain him?

*Where is a cream that can erase my age spots?

*I have made money with all of these kinds of products with specific Affiliate Networks.

 

Now, your head should be spinning with ideas.  Just remember, the key is to pick a subject that not only YOU know a lot of information about, but choose a subject that thousands of people search for a month that includes e-books and physical products, as well.

 

The next step is to Build A List of Subscribers.

In the next article in this blogpost, I will discuss all of the exact names of the Affiliate Networks I signed up to in order to make those commissions. You can find that here BEST AFFILIATE PROGRAMS.

Cash-Sucking List-Building Part 1 and Part 2

To get you motivated and excited, let me give you some screenshots and daily income reports of very successful blogs.

 

Just take a LOOK below, and use it as your ‘super juice” to get you going on creating your blog and building your subscriber list as soon as today.

 

50blogs

Source of graph: http://onlineincometeacher.com/money/top-earning-blogs/

 

Notice these figures represent the Daily Income, not monthly incomes of these blogs.

 

WOW!

 

As you study this list, you will notice that advertising banners make up the main income from some of these top performing blogs which means that the more visitors you have to your site with good content, it is possible to make a full-time living online just from putting simple ads on your site! Now, I call that a win-win.

 

Others, make their daily/monthly income from affiliate links, which is the model I follow, although I do use Google Adsense as well and have already made a small amount of money the first week on the one Google ad at the bottom of this blog, starting out. As time goes on, that income will grow naturally.

 

My full-time income comes from mailing affiliate offers to my subscriber list, product offers and a new membership site. You can model everything you see and do this as well.

 

Where do you begin?

 

Why should you build a list again? If every single one of your multiple streams of income all dry up, but you still have your list, you can start over and fill up your Paypal account with 1 simple email.

 

Don’t you agree that can be life-changing? I agree. It’s what I do and it is what I want you do and I want you to stick to it every day because this is can change your life, if you do it consistently.

 

Now, let’s build your blog around your most important asset…your subscriber list.

To begin, you need 2 Things:

  1. An autoresponder
  2. A lead capture box to collect names and emails

First, sign up at Aweber with a trial account.

How To Make More Sales Faster With Any Video You Make

So many people ask me, “How can I make more sales with the videos I do make?” These four bonus tips are very effective and can make the difference between your making $0 sales and making $25+ per sale.

Here are 4 Ways To Make More Sales Faster with Any Video You Create:

  1. The secret to making more sales faster is this: target the PRODUCT NAME.
  2. Then, add qualifiers that BUYERS type in such as these:
  3. Product Name Download, Product Name Review, Product Name JVZoo Product Name Clickbank, Product Name Does It Work? What is the Price of Product Name?  Why? These are people with their credit card in their hand ready to buy and just trying to decide a little bit more about the product before purchasing it. You are finding the folks in the buying cycle as close to closing the sale as possible
  4. Make your Video Titles stand out like a Purple Cow amongst the other videos showing in the sidebar like this this:  *Video Vibe Pro Review – A REAL User’s Comments! Video Vibe Pro Download – Get the REAL Scoop here**   **Video Vibe Pro – Peek Inside the Member’s Area!!! (Use those symbols in your title too, to attract attention – it works all day long!

10 Ways To Use Video To Make Clickbank Sales

Looking for one thing to change your life? Only one thing can change your life online…and that is to build a real business online.

Whether it be affiliate products by promoting other people’s products (my personal favorite), promoting the hottest toys in Amazon, or click per action offers for travel, your one thing is this..build a subscriber list that you can market to for years to come. 

Seriously, how many times do you think Amazon markets to one buyer?  Once that person has created a free account, when they login, they see “Suggested items” and Amazon even goes so far as to send you an email, saying you “might like this.”

If the massive Amazon website can create billions of dollars in revenues following these simple “follow up” tips, you can do the same thing by creating an autoresponder  (I use Aweber for my main list) and following-up with the people who sign up on your list.

When you find out what sells the best and fits your personal talents, skills and mindset, hang your hat there. Don’t go any further. Don’t buy anything else. Don’t download another program, unless it promotes that one thing.

Why? Because that one thing is a focus, a place where you can build a list of subscribers to feed your family and pay your bills for many years to come.

Want to get to $5000 as fast as possible? Find out what people need and serve it to them with all your heart, soul and ability. Don’t try to make a fast buck, because fast bucks fly out the window as fast as they came in to your Paypal account.

Instead, a better option is to fill your autoresponder with names and emails of people who know you, like you and trust you because you helped them fill a need in your life.

What are some examples of this?

There are thousands upon thousands of marketplaces, and virtual stores online. Each one fills a need, some fill a need of thousands.

Take a physical website, for example, I was just looking at a site that offers women accessories to redecorate that bathroom.

Now, if you build a list of women who wanted to redecorate their bathroom, don’t you think those same women are also interested in organizing their closet, their shoes, their make-up drawer? The answer is a resounding yes!

So, where do you begin?

First, pick a niche product and then make a Youtube video about it.

How to make sales with videoThis new video software just came out recently to make video creation super easy and take away the huge learning curve of most softwares out there.

Some of my favorite features to help you create 10 or more videos in a day promoting Clickbank, Markethealth or any CPA offer on Offervault.

 

  1. Video Vibe Pro video software has templates that you can use to simply “Add Slides” to create instant videos.
  2. You don’t have to know any code at all.
  3. You don’t have to upload images, unless you want to ,since they are already preset inside this video software.
  4. This software also takes you directly to Clickbank, Markethealth and OfferVault which are actually 3 of the top affiliate networks online, especially for Newbies. 
  5. Once you “create” your video, you can hit a button to UPLOAD it to Youtube.
  6. Then, you can choose to promote it all over social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit…etc.
  7. There is a another tab that promotes your video to private blog networks. If you don’t know about private blog networks, these are linking sites that are the most favored links by Google that will rank your video.
  8. I also add to the mix, my favorite free pinger called Masspinger.com which gets my video ranked fast.
  9. I also use Google Plus (and after I share my video URL or address of my video on Blogger, I also Google Plus comments underneath my video and then ping ALL of those URLS for quick, added SEO juice.
  10. With this software, you can create hundreds of videos, especially once you get the hang of it, which means you can use this software to leverage your efforts to build your very first list.

That’s the beauty of software. It is actually like having a virtual assistant with you all day long. Kristie Chiles-Arp

 

5 Simple Ways To Grow Your List Fast With Buffer

Last night, I was researching around the net for more information on how to make money with your blog in the fastest amount of time, and I stumbled across a real gem.  Getting traffic to your website is a big deal, especially when there are a million blogs out there and you are competing for an audience. 

Since there are only 24 hours in every day, I knew there had to be a better way to reach hundreds, thousands or millions of people online in social media.  

For the past year or longer, I’ve been using Youtube’s own free

SHARE

buttons beneath each video I create, and then pinging it across the internet with the free tool called Masspinger.com.  It works like a charm, especially with long-tailed keywords (the longer the phrase, the easier it is to rank that phrase). In fact, I just wrote a new course that is quick and easy to show you how I get top rankings in Google using all free tools such as Google+ and Blogger to share my videos.

You can get a copy of that course here, but Members get it free in the tab above called FREE COURSES. You can join us here.

 

I’ve been happy with the results and it brings high rankings, especially if you share on Google’s own properties of Google Plus and Blogger.com with an added free ping to each of those shared urls that is created by the “share.”

Plus, it has proven to bring in lots of free, targeted traffic.  Yet, I was hungry for more traffic and free is always a great reason to try a new tool out.

What is the new tool I found?  It’s called Buffer. Buffers also offers a free version, that can be upgraded to 3 different levels if you find that you want more of their unique services.

What do I love about Buffer?  Hmmm….how much time do we have?

Not much? Okay, then I’ll just stick with

 

5 Simple Ways To Grow Your List Fast with Buffer.com

how to grow your subscriber listAfter staying up until 2:30 a.m. last night, playing around on Buffer’s website, I was delighted to find out that:

Buffer has excellent customer service as referenced by the quickest response in history from 2 of their staff members.  Even though they claim they will answer you within an hour, not only did they get back to me within an hour or less, no less than 2 Team Members wrote me back and asked me if I had any more questions. This was a prime example of superb customer service which makes all the difference in the world when you are tired, bleary-eyed and trying to learn something new at the same time. Also, I might add, I’m a Baby Boomer and what may come in seconds to a 24-year-old, takes me a little bit more studying sometimes.

Here’s what Buffer says in their “Get In Touch” page – “Whether you’re after some help or just want to say hello, we would love to hear from you! Email us below and we’ll get back to you quickly. We aim to reply to over 80% of emails within an hour.”

I might add, they aim to please, and please me they did!

 

buffersupport

 

Reason #1 – You are more apt to grow your list faster simply because if you have any questions about using their website as a newcomer, you can do so with confidence that if you get stuck in any way, their support team will help be there to help you within a short amount of time. This means that you are more likely to use this site and use it consistently, which will result in a better outcome. Why? It’s very user-friendly.

After waiting for days for some customer support desks to answer, if they ever answer at all, having two replies that were prompt, courteous and friendly was totally refreshing and created a deeper desire to keep going through the Dashboard.  After these pleasant encounters with their team, I was more determined than ever to learn how to “tweet” to thousands on an automated basis and I wondered if they included Pinterest.

Reason #2 – Buffer does indeed include Pinterest as one of their sites to “pin” as content for you on a scheduled, automated basis.bufferpinterest

Why am I so interested in learning more about Pinterest? I’ve been watching Shark Tank with my husband this last month and many of the wanna-be entrepreneurs mentioned that some of their traffic and sales that number into the six figures came from social media, namely Pinterest.  

Each time, I heard these impressive success stories of how these people were making six figures from just sharing their product on Pinterest alone, I made a mental note to check that out and last night I did.  

The result of that searching around for automated software to post for you at the peak times of day and night lead me straight to Buffer.com.

Here’s where it gets even better.  

 

Reason #3 The posts can be scheduled at the peak times tailored to your own time zone as you can see in this screenshot:

Reason #4- Buffer added the cool feature of being able to share photos and videos to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest, some of the top traffic sites around the world. I think that is super cool, and is exactly the kind of leverage I’ve been looking for to increase my traffic to this new blog.

Option #1 – Take the URL of your Youtube video that you find underneath your video that looks like this:

 

sharebuttonsyoutube

 

Simply download a video from any video site with the free site called http://savefrom.net that is free and very reliable.

 

savefromnet

 

 

Option #2: Simply use Youtube’s own share code that looks like this:

youtubeurl

Then, just copy and paste the url of your video into the spot on Buffer’s website as show below:

Reason #5 – Results.

What has been the result of this free traffic from free Social Shares on my video and setting up my Buffer accounts last night?

Well, the stats are brand new and just coming in since it has been less than 24 hours, but as you can see from this graph, yesterday when I scheduled posts in Buffer for Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest so far that day has been my biggest traffic surge on this brand new blog so far.  

After less than 24 hours finding this website and Buffer’s awesome team, I am very encouraged.  In fact, I even like the site so much, I plan to keep learning more, posting more and finding out which posts are popular, liked or retweeted.  

Using Twitter alone, is a natural lesson in copywriting and a challenge as well, as it literally forces you to structure your tweets in a way that are short, succinct, and to the point, while still being entertaining and eye-catching at the same time.

Conclusion:  It goes to show that when you over-deliver, people notice.  After I emailed Buffer for support asking how I could best utilize Buffer for this new membership site, two of the team members answered quickly. Both sent me resources in the form of videos and articles to help me get further. I was very impressed with their helpfulness and courtesy.

I also took a moment and went to Youtube to find more information about Buffer.com, since this is a fairly new site to many marketers and bloggers, including me. Check those out on Youtube by searching for “Buffer.” There are some very easy-to-understand video guides there that will help you get an overall picture of this awesome site. 

What is my next step after hitting PUBLISH for this post? I’m going to go visit my Buffer dashboard and share this all over the internet.  I’m in a “twit” mood, so here I go for more fun tonight. Stay tuned for more traffic updates, as I have a feeling this is going to rock.

Nice to meet you, Buffer!
