How to Build and Sell Your First Course in 60 Days

Have you noticed how ridiculously popular online courses are right now?

More and more people are building 6- and even 7-figure businesses selling education products. Yet they aren’t trained marketers, seasoned entrepreneurs, or top experts.

Quite the opposite, actually – they’re regular people who found a way to make a living by teaching others what they know… at scale.

Are you putting off creating and selling your own course?

NOW is the best time to stop thinking about it, and do it!

On a personal note: I've been struggling to create a course for over a year now. I got pretty transparent about it in the post... Hope this will give you a lot of encouragement, if nothing else.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments on the post!

If you are afraid to link out, that's just 'stupid'

That's exactly what Google's +Gary Illyes said in his recent conversation with +Eric Enge and +Mark Traphagen of Stone Temple Consulting.

Here's what Gary said at 51:00 minutes into the video (http://tgcafe.it/1YdbFIa):

"I'm really angry at news sites in general for example because of two reasons. But the two major reasons is that they don't link back anymore to smaller publications or blogs or whatever because they are probably afraid of linking back which is stupid. And I don't think is that they would know everything and my grandmother for whatever reason. Probably still because they are afraid of getting hit by something.

The Internet is built upon links. Links are essential for the Internet. I was reading the news article yesterday night and there was, I don't remember the name of the site, but they only used the name of the site but they linked to it and after I searched for the site I realized that there are two companies are called the same way one is in the UK and one is in the US and and then I had to figure out which site they are talking to. Which is stupid because I could have avoided the whole searching situation by just clicking a link on the article itself."

+Mark Traphagen added to Gary's reply that "It's a disservice to the user."

I also love how +Barry Schwartz concluded his post about it (http://tgcafe.it/24y7Og1):

"Truth is, it is Google's fault there is fear in linking out. :)"

Very true.

The only acceptable reason for not linking out is, not loosing on traffic. Again it's not what web suppose to mean.

How to Find Snapchat Usernames

Currently, you can’t search for Snapchat users easily in the app: you have to know their exact username, which makes finding general users or even celebrities difficult to find.

So Search Engine Journal's +Kelsey Jones published a handy list of directories to help you find other users.

Thanks, Kelsey!

Instagram is testing business profiles

Instagram’s version of Facebook pages, business profiles, are being tested with a small group of users.

Instagram confirmed the test to TechCrunch http://tgcafe.it/1VLrpVe.

Instagram spokesperson also told TechCrunch, “We are testing new business tools coming to Instagram in a few months,” but offered no other details.

It looks like Instagram business profiles will include:

♨ a contact call-to-action button,
♨ access to maps and directions,
♨ the ability for users to email the businesses,
♨ and the ability for the business owner to specify what type of business the profile represents.

Opera brings a completely free and unlimited VPN to iOS

With Opera VPN for iOS, users will be able to bypass geo-restrictions for online content, circumvent firewalls, block ads, and thwart ad-tracking cookies.

The Opera VPN app is toggled to “off” by default, but you can turn it on manually within the “Settings” menu, where there are two additional options to block ads and ad-trackers.

Why would Opera be so generous in providing something for free that most people are willing to pay for?

In our world, nothing is ever completely free.

According to a blog post from SurfEasy (http://tgcafe.it/24GT7nA), Opera collects “anonymous data about how people use their mobile devices” and sells it to third-parties who are “interested in better understanding the mobile ecosystem and how it’s evolving.” The post also says that the company will likely monetize the app through ads in the future.

Changing domain names in 2016: 10 easily overlooked steps that can save SEO

This post by +Glenn Gabe is a good one to bookmark, if you have even an inkling to make such a big change (or might in the future; never know!)

I did it once in the past (Traffic Generation Café wasn't always 'Traffic Generation Café'), but fortunately my blog was too obscure at the time for anyone to notice problems.

Moving your site to a new domain can be fraught with SEO issues, even without a redesign or CMS migration. Columnist Glenn Gabe has some insights on what issues to anticipate and how to handle them.

Looking back at this winter... Can't believe my 8 year-old daughter skiied her first black diamond run!

Glad she took after my husband in sports. My idea of sports is... drinking coffee or wine while watching others exert themselves.

Twitter launched the Connect tab for iOS and Android apps

Twitter has made it (somewhat) easier to find people to connect with on mobile Twitter with the new Connect tab.

The Connect tab will make:

♨ Personalized account recommendations
Twitter suggestions to connect you with accounts they think you'll want to follow (based on whom you already follow, Tweets you like, popular accounts in your local area.)

♨ Address book recommendations
Find people you may know on Twitter by uploading contacts from your device’s address book.

Introduction
If I learned anything after many years of building an online empire, it’s this: the online business industry is a scary place. A place where many a mighty business owner has fallen.

Including me.

That’s right, I’ve had some online business flops in the past, until one day I realized that my business was only as good as the number of eyes that saw it on a daily basis.

That’s why I started TrafficGenerationCafe, focusing on various ways to increase website traffic like search engine traffic, social media traffic, networking, as well as how to convert that traffic into subscribers and buyers.

In six quick months, my blog grew to be an authority on traffic generation. My blog’s traffic (I was ranked under 15K on Alexa), reader engagement, and sales showed me that I was on the right track.

This might all seem foreign to you.

Stick with me and it will soon become second nature.
