Avoid This Social Media Marketing Temptation

How desperate are you to make sales? Social media marketing is not the place for desperate sellers, but it is the place you can make the fastest sales. Does that seem to be a contradiction? I want to explain to you one of the worst habits I see in social media marketing today, and why you must avoid it.



I am a network marketer. I use social media marketing as my primary source to generate leads and to make sales. When I first started using social media for my marketing efforts, I followed what everyone else was doing and it was a disaster. Let me give you an example of what I mean. Go to Facebook and open any group related to making money. Start reading the content that you see appearing in the timeline. What do you see? You see updates with links, calls to action, and spam. You ignore all of it.



What does someone advise you to do in social media marketing for your network business or to sell products? They advise you to start posting in groups on Facebook and on Twitter. They assure you it is a fast way to make money. They are wrong. If you start posting links, calls to action, and spam updates no one will read a word you say. You need to do something different.



The moment I decided to stop posting to get leads and generate sales, I started getting leads and generating sales. We are back to the contradiction, again. I switched to becoming the most engaging and interesting person I could be. I became the number one question asker online. What does that mean? Instead of trying to post updates no one wanted to read, I started reading what they had to say and asking questions. I engaged in their conversations and with them. Imagine how shocked an individual is when they have posted one hundred updates on Facebook and not received a single lead and now someone is talking to them. You have their attention.



I ask questions about their posts. I ask about their business. I try to find out about their levels of success. I want to know about their family, their job, and anything else they want to share. I am legitimately interested in them. One hundred percent of the time, the questions reverse. They start asking about my business, my success, my family. When they hear I am getting leads everyday and I am closing sales using social media marketing, they want to know more.



This is the time I share my other content with them. I lead them to the videos I produce for my business and share on Facebook and YouTube. I guide them to my blog. I have them connect with me on LinkedIn and add me as a friend on Facebook, because we are friends. They share my content and help me generate more leads. Instead of posting content to groups that ignore what I am saying, I post content to friends who want to work with me. Social media marketing is not about spamming groups. It is about getting social and making friends. Embrace the social side of life in your marketing and watch your results explode.

How *#SearchEngineOptimization Has Become More Sophisticated*

Internet marketers are very familiar with the need to use good search engine optimization in each individual post or article they write. Without good #SEO, Google will not send the traffic they need to be successful.

Over the years search engine optimization has become more and more sophisticated. This has been necessary in order to keep up with the technological advancements of Google and other search engines.

Gone are the days when marketers could get by with using a targeted keyword phrase in the title of an article, and then loading the page with the same keyword phrase over and over again. Worse, these pages often contained no information at all; they were pages filled with nothing but links to affiliate sites.

Those marketers found that the search engines sent them so much traffic that they could still make a boat load of money from the 1% or 2% of the visitors who would click through on one of their many affiliate links and make a purchase.

It is easy to appreciate why Google needed to do a better job of understanding where they were sending traffic. Would you continue to use Google if every time you searched for something you were sent to a link farm? Do you like to be sent to a page that offers absolutely no information about the subject of your search? Of course not. No one does.

As technology improved, Google started learning how to separate sites that had informative content from those that were abusing the system. They started learning how to identify articles with original content. They started rewarding articles that included words and phrases that were related to the title of the post. They also stopped sending traffic to sites that repeated keyword phrases over and over and over.

As Google became even more advanced they started looking for and identifying excessive affiliate links. They also started noticing the number of ads that were placed inside an article --- and where in the article the ads were placed.

Today Internet marketers have learned that practicing good search engine optimization really means providing informative content that is relative to the keywords in the article title. They have also learned that the article cannot be copied and that the article should be filled with words and phrases that are related to the subject.

Some feel that Google wants to get rid of Internet marketers. According to Google, however, all they want to do is to send the people using their service to websites that provide what they are looking for. After all, when you use Google, that's what you expect. Everyone wants to be sent to a website that that answers a specific question or solves a specific problem.

So when you are preparing articles or posts for your websites or blogs, just remember to think like Google thinks. Make sure that you provide relative and informative content. That is the first rule of good search engine optimization.

A Brief History of Web Design

The first website in the world was hosted on a NeXT computer at CERN in a lab in the Swiss Alps. It described what the World Wide Web Project was all about, how to access it, what to use, how to further develop it and so on. It was designed ñ or rather programmed ñ by Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web himself.



Building upon the idea of the internet as a whole, Berners-Lee came up with the concept of using a system of interlinked hypertext protocols to transfer a user from document to document and so navigate the internet. He and his team developed the original Hypertext Transfer Protocol (http) as well as a language in which documents could be written, called HTML. They also developed the first browser -- a program capable of reading HTML and basically 'browsing' the various documents.



Without getting into a philosophical debate, web design evolved from chaos, created by many minds. There was a certain design curve if you will. It began simple, with basic colors and layouts. Berners-Lee's WWW site didn't have more than text and a few links. Most other sites that followed kept it simple as well.



But soon simplicity went overboard with images, music, silly effects and slow bandwidth. Things took momentarily a turn for the worse when Adobe Flash came along. Although it could make a visitor's site interaction interesting, it weighed down heavily on bandwidth and a user's time.



Google changed all of that when it banked on a heavy reliance on good old-fashioned text to index sites. Suddenly it became vital for a site to have text and information as opposed to fancy intros and beeping menus in order to garner rank in search engines. New languages came along such as PHP, AJAX, jQuery and others to help keep up with the demand for databases and text-based sites.



Despite fast internet available worldwide ñ and according to Google soon via balloon ñ the established current style is minimalist. Information needs to be accessible quickly and easily without too much clutter. Images need to speak their proverbial thousand words, while the words or texts need to be concise and interesting. Adobe Flash is used sparingly. While a lot of links are good in an SEO context, it is interesting to note that more and more sites return to the basic one-page scheme that only requires scrolling. This may have to do with the fact that the web is increasingly used by tablets and phones: tapping on links can be frustrating while scrolling is done with a simple flick of the finger.



The future looks simple where web design is concerned. A designer needs to meet the perfect balance between design and information for a site to be user-friendly. Text and articles still matter for indexing and ranking, but the more visual a site, the better. Videos and charts help show a visitor what they are looking for.



And that is the crucial point: in the end, it comes down to what the visitor is looking for. So when designing a site, give them what they want.

Advantages To Internet Marketing

A lot of small businesses are realizing that if they want to play with the big boys they need to get out of the kiddie pool. The best and really only way to do that is to become familiar with internet marketing. That’s why having a guide to internet marketing is not only important it’s essential to being successful in any kind of business.

First of all, what is internet marketing? Simply put, it is internet advertising, also referred to as e-marketing and e-commerce. It ís affordable, highly effective and a great way to take your small business to the next level.

However, internet marketing is not only helpful for your local neighborhood coffee shop. Internet marketing is being used by network marketers, entrepreneurs, home business owners and anyone else who wants to get their company name out quickly and efficiently from really anywhere in the world to anyone in the world.

This may seem daunting to tackle this internet marketing on your own, and without the right tools at your disposal it could feel overwhelming. As with anything though, if you understand the objective and find the appropriate tools it’ll be a lot easier to be successful.

First, it’s important to understand the objective and advantages of internet marketing. One great aspect of online advertising is it involves search engines. This is essential since search engines are the only opportunities that you can promote your service or product direct to the consumers that are actively searching for it.

Another advantage for companies is that internet marketing provides a way to track your progress, through sales, promotions and daily advertising. It makes your marketing measurable which is highly valuable for a couple reasons. For one, you can see what is working and what isn’t and adjust accordingly. Secondly, you can target certain clientele making your marketing more focused and essentially more successful.

Another benefit of internet marketing is that you can use e-newsletters to help get new customers and to keep past customers informed and reminded of your services and products. This also makes it easier to platform new services and new products at a fraction of the price it would cost to send out flyers or traditional newsletters.

That leads us to our next advantage of internet marketing, reduction of overhead. Remember the days of having boxes of flyers all over the office, or worse, all over the house? Having to find a desperate college student who was willing to work for peanuts to hand them out and deliver them. Or when the only way to remind a client about your products or services was to literally get in front of them? Now with internet marketing that’s all a thing of the past.

As you can see there are several advantages to internet marketing and there is even more that we didn’t even mention. So if you’re ready to have your business booming and busting at the seams, internet marketing is the first stop in making that dream come true.

Interesting system!

Okay, Guys! Enough is Enough!

Contrary what it would seem given the sheer volume of self-promoting and spam posting, This community was created to explore new techniques and philosophies of application of Neuro-Advertising - Patterns, Techniques, Serious discussions and Questions. Part of this is my fault for not paying as much attention to some of the posting as I should have. But I am correcting that now.

Henceforth, I am changing this into a private group that people can ask to join but are not guaranteed acceptances. Also, any further blatant self-promotional posts or links or advertisement will be removed and the members that posted them will be BANNED!

Sorry to sound harsh but this is what is necessary!
