Why? Because Social Media is changing and some of the social media networks realize there is a potential financial gain in these Market with the  Social Network and Marketing Niche.

6 Tips to make you a better marketer, a better entrepreneur and create more engaging content with your audience.

Social Network Marketing

Social Network and Marketing is a subject that changes far too often. There is secret to Social Network Marketing, and many marketers know it, but only a few using it and execute it.   

1.Facebook Ads Platform all you need to know.

Facebook Ads are perhaps the best form of online advertising around today. There is not one marketer who has not heard of Facebook ads. When used efficiently and strategically it is a great tool to use for placing ads.

Facebook has over two billion users around the world and the Facebook platform collects so much data from these users, yes including you and me.

You can leverage that data to your advantage to reach potential customers and clients of your business.

However, the key is to run targeted ads on Facebook, and you can do that by building what is known as a custom audience through the Facebook Ads Manager Platform.

There are a few things you can do here…
One of it is if you have a CRM (Customer Relation Management ) of any kind or if you have an email list you can import that data right into Facebook.

Any time you run ads even if your ad budget is as little as five to ten dollars you can ensure that those ads that you run are seen by the right audience.

See how easy it is to make these common mistakes.

The biggest mistake marketers make is they just throw money out at Facebook and not running targeted ads whatsoever. Running successful Ads require skills and knowledge.

If you are a real estate agent think about running those ads to target first – time home buyers or people that might potentially be looking to buy a house.

You have the power of that data right at your fingertips. Use it.

  • When you run a Facebook Ad you need to know what is your objective.

  • Is it to buy clicks,
  • is it to purchase engagement,
  • is it to buy views,
  • is it to buy leads,
  • make sure that you are targeted with what your objective is in addition to your audience.

Once again when you are spending money on Facebook Ads you should not just throw your money because you want to get more views on a video, or want to get the necessary comment to that video, what you want to get is buyers or conversions.
Be clear about your objective, and it is tailored to what your end game is.

The best way to stay in the loop is with Social Media Marketing. Don’t say no to get more leads and more conversions.

You can use more than one social media network but you should know the rules, and you should master them. 

Manage your social accounts with software that will auto-schedule your posts. 

2. Use Instagram and Twitter as Search Engines. What?

Twitter.

Let’s face it these social networks nowadays provide end-users with a lot of data and easy access to reach people.
You can go on Twitter right now, and type in any search phrase.
Twitter sharesIf you want to work with any business, you can type in their executive and or company name and find what you are looking for.

If you are a creator or an influencer and you want to get their attention say Companies like Nike, Puma or Addidas, you can go on Twitter and type in “at Nike “and click on people that come up with the search term “at Nike” in their profile on Twitter.
Try it out…

Instagram MarketingInstagram

The same thing applies to Instagram, you can use hashtags to run searches for people that are speaking about specific topics.

If you are let’s say an SEO expert, you can type in SEO help on Twitter, and you can see anyone that’s talking about this particular topic, swoop in and offer them to help them out.

That’s the power of using Twitter and even Instagram for search.

A Quick Tip

Going forward in 2020 make sure that as you are creating content and building relationships on these platforms that you are also using them as search engines.

3. Another tip is that you should share your Content on third Party Content Platforms.

So for social networks and Marketing purpose, you should put the emphasis into contributing Content on third-party platforms, versus your own native website or your own native channels.

Ohhh …I know what you are thinking now and you rightly ask isn’t the game to drive people back to your website? The answer is yes and no …. What??

Content is KingIf you are trying to grow your personal brand as a thought leader in your industry, and if you are trying to get more views on your Content yes you can drive people to your website, and now you are fighting an uphill battle of sending people to a channel that you are responsible for driving traffic to.

What you can do is create Content on established social networks and platforms like say, Medium, Blog Lovin, LinkedIn, you can apply for being a contributor on different blogs that are relevant to your industry.

Understand the game.

By creating Content on this 3rd party platforms now, you are tapping into the benefit of the traffic that visits that websites.
For example :
Many of you reading this blog right now on Bloglovin, or on Entrepreneur.com where I am an active contributor.

The Entrepreneur.com is an iconic brand with over a million followers and subscribers on social media in addition to visitors that go to their website.

In short, what I am trying to say is as a thought leader in marketing and social media networking you can either try to drive people from say Instagram over to your own website or instead you can contribute Content for an established incredible news media outlet like Entrepreneur.com and tap into the reach that they provide.

A piece of good advice to all of you out there is, start focusing on creating Content on 3rd party platforms.
The platforms you choose should be established and give you access and reach to a bigger to a greater audience.

4. Thousands have the same problem as you struggle with getting organic engagement?

If you struggle with getting organic engagement in any social media networks to think, about starting your own Private Mastermind Group.

Can be a Facebook Group that is private like Social Media Masterminds.
Does not matter if it is …

  • a What’s App Chat,
  • a We Chat group,
  • a Private Group on Twitter which allows you to Create private DM groups with up to 50 people.

Start a private group so you can bring like-minded professionals and colleagues just like you into your own space.

By creating your own mastermind group, you can control the conversations and steer them in a way where if you have Content that is fresh and relevant for the audience.

You can share directly with those others say group members without coming across as being self-promotional.

Choose your team wisely in network marketingYou can also look at Content what other people are posting without having to sift through hundreds if not thousands of accounts as well.

Private Mastermind Groups going to be a big trend going forward.

Let’s face it as marketers are losing reach and having to spend money on social media where their mind is racing too, how can I defeat and outwit the system.

Guess what you can’t trick the system but you can within the rules of the system.

I recommend if you are struggling with getting reach then analyze who are your superfans, who are the people that are most interested in your Content.

  • Guess what …invite them into a private group most recently I did this on Twitter as an experiment.
  • I went through and just start adding into a group the top 50 people that often Engage with my Content.
  • People who like my Content,
  • Share my Content,
  • Comment on my Content

It was like magic when I invited these 50 people into one group.
Doesn’t matter what your branding is it works.

So say we create a group called Lifestylebiz you can create a group and invite people and guess what you can grow this group and sell to them to your own audience.

Recently I went to a Life Style Conference where a fitness sales professional came to my keynote. She walked away and said you know what I am going to run over to Facebook and create a Facebook group for Fitness Enthusiasts.

If I get all these Fitness enthusiasts into a group now guess what I can sell to them without having to run ads.

That is my recommendation to you. Start creating small privatized communities.
Important Note of advice.

6 Social Media Marketing Tips you should not ignoreStay informed what is happening on other social networks but don’t go chasing new shiny objects.
What that means is do not chase the trends. Why because you will hear there is a new social network and don’t just rush to go jump on it.

I know every thought leader, and guru out there says go, land, grab and go get as many people you possibly can on this new social networks. Click Here

Guess what happens when you go to rush over to all these new social networks as we saw in 2018 with Save Arrow or Web Talk what you are doing is you are engaging with probably the same people in your space that already on Instagram, Pinterest, Snap Chat, Facebook and Twitter.

Believe me, these are people that are doing the same thing that you are trying to do.

My recommendations are instead of going to chase that new shiny object work with your existing Infrastructure what exists.

You have access to over 2 billion Facebook users, over 1 billion active Instagram users, Twitter, LinkedIn these are social networks which I can almost assure you, will give you more value and more immediate reach than any new social network that you can jump on.

6. A new trend that brings you more traffic and you more shares

Make sure that as you are going to different places specifically as you are sharing your Content on Instagram, you want to tag where you at.

Social Networks and Marketing,The reason why is because as you are going to these places and sharing Content, other people are doing the same, or they are looking for Content in these venues.

If you go to a sporting event, for example, I live in Singapore and if I go to the F1 Grand Prix 2019 Night Racing I am going to different places like Marina Bay Sands, and I want my Content to be indexed within the Marina Bay Sands because this is all about discoverability.

 

 

So how am I growing my following?
I am posting Content consistently daily making sure of #hashtags.
Making my Content easily discoverable with where I visit.

So once again throughout 2020 make sure that not only are you paying to optimize your content and get additional reach. A great way to schedule your pins is with Tailwind. 

You can also do a couple of easy tips and tricks to get more organic traffic, and it starts with tagging the places where you visit and post Content on Instagram or Facebook.

The Relationship between your Brain and You.

Did you know that financial success is according to Brain Science predicted by your brain and not by you? When I heard this first I was surprised.

There will be a high number of people arguing about that, but Neuro Science and Brain studies have confirmed that you and your brain’s connect and will determine if you are financially successful or not.

There are enough people in this world who are trapped in their world of having a day in and day out financial problems. They never seem to be able to come out of it.

What are Financial Problems?

We all been there, or at least I have been there. Going through the worry of paying bills and just getting around with little or no money left. I did not like it, and I was always looking for a way to make more money. Today I know it was a process for me to take my happiness into my own hands.

Do you need a Loan financial problems solved

We all know people who work very hard and never come out of there hamster wheel working their but’s of and in the end they have the same financial problems over and over again. I have done the Free Webinar and I was surprised how logically some things are and how easy it is to change your mindset. Share my blog if you know people who struggle in their daily life.

In this blog, I will talk to you about Brain and Science. How to overcome the Chit Chat in your head that is holding you back, and how you can solve your problems once and for all. No more sleepless nights. I believe you want to have a good sleep right?

I always have been interested in Science and how our brain works. But when I came across that article from John Assaraf on how your brain predicts the financial success of yours, I was impressed. Actually to be honest I was shocked.

John even created based on his research and experience a course on how to rewire your Brain. The course is called “The winning game of money.” If you are interested click here. It comes with a free Webinar.

No more financial problems

Thousand now has overcome their limiting beliefs, who never thought they could do it.

One question people always ask is why do they get stuck earning the same amount of income? Year in and year out no matter how hard they work trying to make more money.

To most people, this is pretty frustrating, and Brain Science now has the answers that explain this problem of working harder and only achieving incrementally better results, if any at all.

I know I been there for years I had a great job loved it but somehow, I felt like no matter what I do I can not cross that income mark to make six figures or even seven figures.

One of the first things I realized is that part of my brain that predicts my income and lifestyle.

I measured my achievement with the hard work and because I had a limited time of hours available I did limit myself. I was the cause which was holding me back — my limiting beliefs.

Science has come a long way and based on the latest Brain Science research the Brain plays a vital role in your Financial achievements.

You see, the part of your brain called front striatal pathway is responsible for your hidden self-image that unconsciously drives your behaviour. In most cases, it can be even stronger than your decisions and conscious desire to earn more income.

Many scientists believe that this small yet powerful pathway in your brain is the reason why most people who win millions of dollars in the lottery tend to sabotage their success and lose all the money in a very short timeframe.

Let me explain this a bit deeper, stay and you will be surprised.

It’s very hard for a person to consistently earn more income than the amount that is locked in their unconscious brain where their hidden self-image and income set-point resides.

Self sabotage your money

The reason so many people get stuck earning the same income over and over again is not that they are not smart enough, or they don’t have the talent or the skill. The reason is that several parts of their unconscious brain have been trained and conditioned to expect a certain amount of income and a comfort zone year in and year out.

Does that start to make sense to you yet?

The Hypothalamus in your brain is like a thermostat.

Any amount of income that differs from the income set point in their brain will trigger an alarm within the brain that maintains homeostasis. This part of the brain is called the hypothalamus.

Just like a thermostat, the hypothalamus will bring them back to their original income and financial set point and their comfort zone by regulating their thoughts, their emotions and their behaviours.

Once they learn to adjust their hidden brain self – image and their brains financial set point, it becomes easier to earn more income and maintain it.

Do you want to know a few tricks to increase your income? Let me show you a few brain tricks to augment your brain and your self- image.

Try it out nothing to lose. The only thing you can gain is more income. It depends on you how determined you are.

For the most part without you knowing it, this frontal striatal pathway has been developing in your brain your whole life. All of the teachings from your parents, school teachers, friends, siblings and your personal experiences have shaped your life and the way you are and think.

The front-striatal pathway can be trained just like a muscle.

The more you reinforce certain beliefs about yourself the stronger your self-image becomes.

Now I know that you have a conscious idea of how much income you want to earn?

I also know that you have a strong hidden unconscious self -image and a financial setting that quietly sits in the backdrop and unconsciously pulls all of the strings and causing you to maintain whatever level of financial achievement has been programmed into this part of your brain.

Outsmart your Brain and self image

The latest brain research shows that any change in the brain is interpreted as stressful.

Yes, even if it is a good change the brain gets stressed because it is not familiar with that.

FMRI Functioning magnetic resistant images studies

Most brain FMRI (functioning magnetic resistant’s imaging studies) have shown that when people have to make a significant change in their life triggers the activation fear centre. The emotional centre of your brain the amygdala causes most people,

a. either to freeze,
b. fight the change
c. or run away.

Why? …Is your brain doing this?

Explained simply…you are stepping out of your comfort zone and your mind will do anything to get you back into the comfort zone. Thoughts, Emotions and Feelings that you are familiar with.

Re-train your brain or say Re-wire your brain?

How can you retrain your frontal striatal pathway so that your unconscious hidden self- image matches the conscious image and the desire you have in earning more income and living the life you dream.

Brain science suggests that small changes thoughts or behaviours will not activate your fear centres or the fear-driven amygdala.

Visualization of your bigger financial goals will activate in the brain the nucleus acumens and insula.

These two parts of your brains drive your motivational centre, and they will trigger your feel-good neurotransmitter so you will feel motivated and take action on your goals.

Lets us play a game here. Are you ready?

Imagine this you are sitting at a café or a restaurant of your choice and a famous producer comes up to you and says this …

Hi I am XYZ and I just noticed you from across the room I am producing a new Hollywood movie and I think that you would be the perfect person to play a role in the movie.

Become financially free today

If you like the script and you agree to be in the movie, I agree to pay you 5 Million dollars. Now the chances are that you would be a little bit shocked, a little excited, or even a little bit scared right?

So play along and lets see where this goes together.

Let’s assume after a couple of weeks of test and discussions you agree to accept this challenge, and you agree to do your very best to play this role. You sign the agreement, and he hands you the script, and now you have decided to become that role.

So what do you do first?

If you want to nail the part and have people believe you when you act and the filming is on, I imagine that you practise reading the role, performing the role, and you imagine playing the part over and over again in your mind until it felt and you felt comfortable.

Imagine through the practice of the role in your mind and your behaviour you would start to integrate with the role from the script that you are acting, and you would begin to become the role.

It would become more and more familiar to you over time right. Do you enjoy that play role so far?

Now it is all the time when you try to get a new role integrated into your brain. When you are working with your self-image and you add knowledge skills and ability. Your Goal and your vision become one.

Your frontal striatal pathway has this new image integrated with your old self-image and you have changed from the inside out.

imagine the vision in your head over and over

With this said what you should do every day for the next 5 to 7 days just to get started on activating this part of your brain.

Sit quietly for just 5 minutes and start to see yourself already achieving the financial goals you have for yourself.

First, you see it in your mind’s eyes, role play with yourself and use your imagination that is where it all begins. Plant the seed for the better.

  • Ask yourself what I am wearing?
  • Who is with me?
  • How am I feeling?
  • What are you doing?
  • What is the entire emotion that you are experiencing?

See how easily you can overcome your financial problems.

You have to understand the more detailed you are the easier it will be for you to retrain the unconscious self-image of your self.

What I suggest is that you will remember this practice. It is the art of practising until it feels like normal.

It is the same as learning the alphabet or riding a bike, or learning how to drive a car.

Become the Actor of your Life you desire.

Learning how to become the script requires, focus attention and spaced repetition that it really sinks in, so does create the new self-image that you want.

If you enjoyed this and you want to learn more of the real brain science in achieving greater financial goals and financial success that shutter your financial glass ceiling and what you are capable of earning.

What I love you to do is join John Assaraf and 5 other well-known  Experts on Brain Science at the world famous complimentary FREE Brain A Thon webinar.

I have to say I watched the video and I found it interesting, John will sell you the course what comes with it. It is up to you if you take on the offer or not. One thing I can say that I bought the course and over a period of time, I did let go of my limiting beliefs and I achieve now my goals. I am now earning a six-figure income.

It open my eyes on how much chit chat is in my brain and often times I am not very nice to myself. I did criticize myself a lot without realizing it.

I am in no way perfect, but I have my brain under control and I tell my brain and mind what to do not the other way around.

Do you know why people have trouble coming out of their financial problems? Because they rehearse in their mind over and over again the scenario what they will do when they can not pay their bills.

They imagine all in detail what they say and play the conversations in their head. They identify themselves with that role, and it becomes so familiar that they attract the things they don’t want.

Why not change it and learn how to turn the negative into a positive thought and achieve the life of your dreams.

8 Easy Techniques to increase your sales and conversions on your website.

Choose your team wisely in network marketing

Are you tired of not getting enough traffic to your website, landing pages or squeeze pages?

I remember in the beginning when I started out my visitors were low and it took me a while to understand what it takes to get visitors to my site and actually make them stay and subscribe.

email marketing a great way to build a list

In this blog, I will show you 8 Easy Techniques to increase your sales and conversions on your website.

You must be realistic not everyone who visits your site will actually subscribe, but there is a percentage what will convert into subscribers.

It took me almost 4 months when I made the first sales and had a 4 figure income.

Ok, it sounds not long but I was putting in an extra 4 hours each day. Getting traffic to your site is the most common struggle internet marketers have when they start the business. It took me nearly 8 months to come to 10 K a day. 

You know it is hard to get traffic, but it is not impossible.

When you follow a simple formula on how to improve your traffic you can grow with easy techniques your sales and conversions.

If your traffic is flat and you can’t figure it out how to make it climb up you are at the right place, read this post to the end.

Technique Number 1 Collecting emails as the money is in the List.

It is believed that the more traffic you get, the more sales you make. Unfortunately, this is not true, just because your traffic goes up doesn’t mean your sales go up.

One thing you should do when you have a website is to focus on collecting emails. Build an email list.
Create a good Freebie a product that has value and people are keen on getting it.

Then you are able to grow your list. Also, one thing is you have to give value first before you can get sales. Don’t focus only on the money focus on the value you can provide for your visitors.

The bigger you grow your email list, the more people you are going to convert into customers.

sales and conversions in online marketing

See it from this side whenever someone comes to your website, and they subscribe to your email list, they are already making a commitment to follow you, and your business.

They are going to build that relationship with you, and as you create this relationship, you can send them emails about offers, your products, your services, and you will notice that a percentage of your email list will convert into customers.

The good thing about this is that you can do it easily in using free tools like hellobar.com

Technique Nr. 2 Go over your site and optimise your website for conversions.

The most important thing is to focus on conversion optimisation. You properly think your site is already optimised, but I guess it is not optimised enough; otherwise, you would not be here and read my blog.

Optimising a Website for conversion you must run split testing like AB Test. Most of the marketers wait a long time until they start split testing as most of them think it is not necessary, not the right time, or they are just not comfortable with it.

But if you do not do the split testing how do you know what is going to work and what is not working. Conversions will be then just guessing.

AB Testing is the best ROI generation from your marketing spent, yet very few companies and marketers spend any energy on AB testing.

There are a lot of tools you can use like Crazyegg, Optimizely, Hotjar, and VWO just to name a few.

Crazyegg, for example, will show you where people click on your site and where they do not click.
It shows you how far people scrolling down your page, and they make it very easy to run AB testing.

Below if you click on the picture you can see a video on how to install the plugin to see what visitors actually doing on your website. Please note it is a redirection.

google insights

The reason you want to use this tool is as it will show you which areas of your website are confusing.

You need to improve that, because if you are changing that you are not getting any sales.

Collecting emails and doing conversion optimisation is the foundation if you want to grow your traffic and get more sales.

If you are not generating any sales from your website, something is wrong, and you need to investigate what is wrong and correct it. Remember getting more visitors doesn’t ’t guarantee you more sales.

Technique Nr. 3 increase your visitors to your website.

The Internet is now full of people blogging and hoping to make it in affiliate marketing.

Most people go out there and try to write tons of content because they think the more blog post they have, the more sales they get.

That is wrong thinking just because everyone writes a lot of content; it doesn’t mean you need to follow.

Instead of focusing on quantity and there are over a billion blogs on the internet right now, with Medium, Bloglovin, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Facebook etc. focus on high-quality blog posts.

What should you write?

#The best thing is that you write something fresh, something that people haven’t seen before.

When you do that you are more likely to get social shares, Traffic, Linkbacks and higher rankings on Google and Bing.

#Linking your blogs to a handful of people or places you got your source from, or to other competitors within your space that will help you share your content even further.

When you link out to those sites, make sure you email them when you publish that blog post.

This is an example from Neil Patel. It is short and sweet.
Hey Jane
I am a huge fan of your work. I just wanted you to know that I linked out to you in my latest blog post. ( insert link)
It would mean the world to me if you shared it on your favourite social network.
Cheers Sylvia

Download here our cheat sheet with different  E-mail swipes to sent out. 

The easiest way to do it is to ask the people who you link too to share your content.

Technique Nr. 4 Building a Notification list to inform your customers about new blogs.

Tools like subscribers.com make it super simple for people to subscribe. The opt-in cat is another option. When they subscribe, you can create a drip feed within subscribers.

One of my first trip notifications is my favourite Keyword Tool. When I do that, I am sending people to jaaxy.com that drives me a ton of traffic, a ton of usage. It is a favourite way to use in marketing. Use one of your favourite software or tools. 

Try out this Keyword tool it is free. 

 

You can push notifications to use as a primary way to drive traffic to your website, and at the same time, you can generate leads and sales.

Technique nr. 5 Take a look at your competitors uses the software to spy on them.

Using tools like SEMrush, Ahrefs and Buzzsumo, you can spy on your competition.

SEMrush shows you all the popular terms, organic and paid your competitors going after.

Ahrefs shows you everyone who is linking, to your competition that is not linking to you.

Buzzsumo shows all the popular articles that your competition had read.
Use this tool to figure out what is working for your competition and do more of that. Also, you can use these tools to see what is not working for your competition so you can avoid making the same mistakes.

Take advantage of the tools that are out there it helps you to grow your business, and at the same time, you learn from your competition.

Not all tools are free if you can invest in some tools if not use the free version. But upgrade when you can. After all, you are running a business. 

Technique Nr. 6 Go Visit and engage in trade shows, enhance the offline business.

Trade shows are huge. I know we are talking about online stuff but who says you can’t generate business offline.

Even though I get over 20 K unique visitors a month, I still generate more revenue offline.

Lots of people are not so familiar with the internet and getting to know them to present your business is a great idea.

Check out trade shows, Conferences and localised meetups that is how I am building my brand.

Speaking on conferences, going to localise meetups, doing all these things will help you generate business. ( when you start out, you have to know that you will not be paid speaking on conferences or shows.) It does not matter, but it brings you customers and strengthen your Authority.

People aren’t just communicating over the internet, they also want to get to know you. Build that personal connection in person, this is an essential factor. People like to know with whom they are dealing and the mouth to mouth advertising is still popular.

It is simple it is easy you can even apply to speak at conferences also if you haven’t spoken at any event before, just take all your industry events to apply to all of them and one for sure will accept you.

This is a numbers game, that is how I got my first speaking gig. Remember offer value first.

Technique Nr. 7 Get yourself some press you can hire an agency.

Companies like prserve.com will do a performance-based press. If they get you on sites like TechCrunch, Buzzfeed, Entrepreneur or whatever it may be, whatever you are targeting they will charge you.

What that means is that you pay for it.
Some of the not so well-known gurus always say they featured on Forbes or CNN or whatever. That is how they do it. They take their luck and success into their own hands.

If they don’t, get you the deals they won’t charge you.
You also have to understand that it is not a guarantee that you will have the links to your site. Just because you get on TechCrunch doesn’t mean PR serve is going to guarantee that they are going to link to your website.

Yeah, they will mention your site, your product, and your service, and they may want to interview you.

They will create real press even real magazines likes Forbes the offline edition or Entrepreneur, right the physical hard copy print magazine version. It is a great way to just generate press without having to pay those monthly retainers like most of those PR Companies charge.

Technique Nr. 8 Keep your content SEO optimised.

You do not have to use too much SEO or hire an SEO expert. The only thing you should do is use a keyword tool and check out the best keywords for your article or blog post.

It is not so difficult as you think with our Jaaxy Keyword tool you can do and optimise your blog post and get ahead of your competition.

Affiliate Marketing for Beginners. Is Wealthy Affiliate the real deal or a scam…?

How To Make Extra Money From A Home? Ideas for you that work for an extra paycheck.

What are the most common Obstacles a network marketer has to overcome? What are your struggles?

Fear and Declutter

When you start your Network Marketing Business online you have to overcome different hurdles, how to easily manage those obstacles and get ahead of your competition.

Working in online marketing as a network marketer is not as easy as it is made out on a lot of promo sites.

We made to believe it is the easiest business in the world. No 8-hour work only a minimum of effort.

The reality is that “Online Marketing” has a very high failure rate.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic,  says that 90 percent of new online businesses fail in the first 120 days of their startup.

struggles for network marketer in real life

If you look at it that means that out of 100 online businesses only 10 survive.

The idea of working from home sounds great and looks like an ideal solution for many. Lots of people who are unhappy in their job will fall for the promise of the fast money making scam (also called shiny object syndrome) to get rich overnight and earn thousands of Dollars  $$$$$ while you sleep.

Those people quit their job and jump right into the internet marketing business. People fail because they jump into it without knowledge of what they are doing, no prior knowledge of what is expected and one main problem is that they try to do it themselves without help, trying to reinvent the wheel again.

Why is the failure rate so high? There are a number of reasons. 

1. Lots of people are not prepared and understand what they get into.

2. Some people are desperate and fall for the online scams.

3. Lot’s of people do not understand the basic quote ” If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail”

4. People are alone and do not realize that there are learning platforms out there who teach all step by step.

Learn Internet marketing step by step with the support of a great community. No promise of becoming rich overnight. 7 Day Free Trial no Credit card required.

Lots of Network Marketers quit before they become successful.

When you are in the online marketing world and you are successful then you understand the struggles you will go through, the ups and downs of emotion.

The only difference is how people handle the ups and downs. That, in fact, determines if you succeed or fail.

Every Network Marketer can confirm that one day you are in the clouds and the next day you are on the bottom … question yourself why you are doing this and does it actually work.

Let me give you a bit of my experience. When  I had a real good week of sales and the next week it was so slow that I was wondering what I am doing, doubting myself and having all different thoughts and voices in my head.
I felt like the ocean with big waves that throw me up and down. I was working full time and at the same time started the online business.

I struggled for the first six to 9 month, and I thought that should be easy? you must be joking. Whoever told me that should be …  I realised around in the 3rd month that I need a system and a proper mindset to keep myself motivated and to go.

Network Marketing requires a Lot of Discipline. Is Discipline the key to success?

It is so easy when working at home getting distracted and do other things. When you start, and you do not set out your goals and hold yourself responsible you are doomed to fail.

I know what I say now it seems harsh and a lot of you will not agree with me, but if you want to be successful in Network marketing, then you must change your attitude, your mind and some of your environments around you.
Changing an environment is not so easy as you will eventually replace all nine environments. Read my blog about the 9 environments. 

Is Time Management a must for a Network Marketer?

Network Marketer struggle with Time Management and if you are not able to manage your time efficiently, you are trapped in the hamster wheel.
Time Management for Network Marketers a considerable struggle and with the Time Management comes to the efficiency.

Lots of people joining the Online marketing never owned a business before, they have been an employee their whole life and don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with that.

When you start a business, you have to be self-disciplined, and you need to manage your time wisely and efficiently. A lot of planning is involved, and that goes from the day to week, to month and 6-month plan.

Changing your mindset is essential to succeed. 

Changing an employee mindset to an entrepreneur mindset is not so easy and needs some training.

The downside is you need to put in the work even you do not feel like it. When others go out for the weekend, you have to stay and work on your business. If you do not make your Business high priority and you treat your side business as a hobby, it will always remain a hobby.

I know this step is hard moving from hobby to business. But if you do not take that step and keep it a high priority life will get in the way and it will take over your time.

You need to work at least 3 hours a day and at least 10 hours on the weekend on your side business if you can not do that you will get bored and after a while, you lose interest and give up.

One thing you also have to understand when you do time management then you have to do it right. Time management is not just time management you need to manage your time efficiently in a way that has 20% input brings you 80% of the sales.

Network Marketing and Time Management

Can you make a decision that will influence the outcome of your online business? 

Making a decision is for many a struggle. But when you follow on a time schedule you need to decide on the priority tasks that will make you the most money. You need to calculate your time wisely and need to get rid of all the distraction that comes into your way every single day.  Lots of Network Marketers in the beginner state struggle to work out a system and priorities the tasks into daily and weekly tasks.

Many Network Marketers advanced or beginners can not afford to outsource simple tasks.

I do not like to do, some of the tasks and I do not like to spend to much time on it as I know myself when I do not like that task I will go and procrastinate.

Go into affiliate marketing and monetize your website from the beginning therefore you are able to afford outsourcing different tasks.

Learn how to monetize your site with affiliate marketing with the best affiliate platform that gives you the training you need to succeed.

Get visitors to your website and collect leads is one of the bigger struggles for network marketers.

Getting leads is one of the biggest challenges that people deal with. To succeed in Business, you need leads.

It does not matter if you have a physical business or a digital business. Without people to talk to, sell your products and explore the business opportunity you have no business.

It is like a restaurant without customers to sell your food too, you have no business, and eventually, you get bankrupt.
There are different ways to get leads, and the possibilities are endless.
A simple and efficient way is to find a good and suitable lead generation possibility and you need to decide and fine-tune what works for you.

How to get more Leads.  

You can use classified ads, local events, solo ads, blogging, youtube videos, sales funnel, or opt-in pages where your visitor to your site signs up for a newsletter or receives a gift.

There are hundreds of possibilities to generate leads. The only thing you must do is take action.

Email Marketing Secrets

The next struggle for Network Marketers is Duplication.

What means Duplication? It means that when something works like an ad that you want to duplicate it over and over again.

For example:  If you have an affiliate business and you run an ad and that ad works well and makes you the good income you need to know what you did and run your analytics so that you can use it over and over again.

If you have an MLM business for example:  When you sign someone up you, want them to be able to go out and find a few customers or sponsors a few distributors to teach train and support their team and duplicate that over and over.

It sounds simple in the real world; it doesn’t work out that way. Do you believe that almost three out of four people who join your team going to end up quitting in less than 90 days?

They are not going to sponsor anyone, and they’re not going to find any customers they are not going on auto-ship no matter what you do to help them. It is hard to accept that, but the sooner you accept that fact and embrace that the better off you are going to be.

obstacles a network marketer has to overcome

What is the key to duplication?

The Key to duplication is to have a simple system people can easily follow and a strong team culture that people love to be part of.
Besides, you use a simple system that is called tap- rooting, where you build depth quickly under the people you enrol, and you give them something to lose when people have something to lose then they are less likely to leave the business.

The invisible struggle of outsourcing and finding quality people.

It is hard for network marketers to find people that are leaders and doers. The truth is there are not many leaders and doers out there.

Have a look in the cooperate world most people stay in their job for years without a promotion or go as far where they do not need to make important decisions. Leaders and doers make decisions all the time and making decisions on a daily base is for a lot of people a struggle.

But that is ok we need the diversity in the people that what makes our world go around. We need all different types of people in the world to make the economy run.

The sooner you realise that the best people in network marketing typically show up in-depth rather than the people you sponsor. As you sponsor people whatever they are good or not they can lead you to quality people.

One other thing you should do is recruit up, and that means look at the people who are at the same level as you in the areas of success, knowledge and motivation. Most people they hire or recruit down as they look for the unemployed person broke a person, or someone who is struggling their whole life, that is not really who you want to recruit into your business.

They might be a great and well-educated person they are just not a prospect, and they just do not have the spark what it takes to be successful. You want people who have the same view of things as you and works as hard and determined as you.

The person you recruit should have contacts, credibility and some influence. Look for those prospects and your business will grow.
I usually look at people, and I look at people who owned a business before, or have done network marketing before, sales professionals, or know how to work on a commission base.

Use quality people in your team, when you have to say 30 people in your team, and you sponsored 5 or 6 of them you can look at the other 23 people and find the two or three who want to do something with the business and start working with them.

Obstacles Marketer need to overcome

Attrition is a Killer in Network Marketing.

What is Attrition? It is a process of reducing something’s strength or effectiveness through sustained attack or pressure.

That is a killer in our business. It is the fact that around 65 to 70 per cent of your team is quitting the business every single year and the truth is all businesses in the real world they lose customers, and they lose employees, and online marketing is no different.

The problem with most people is that they start something but don’t finish anything. Most people give up on diets, give up on fitness and exercise. Most businesses in the real world don’t succeed; it is a fact of the real world. Network Marketing is easy to quit as you usually invest less than a $100 investment.

wealthy affiliate free starter membership

If you would invest one million dollars in starting a traditional franchise, you would never quit when times get tough, but you would do the opposite, and you would do everything and anything in your power to make this franchise business succeed.

That will never happen in the online world as the investment is small and people have no skin in the business and write off the few bucks very quickly.

That is why I say you want to build depth you give people something to lose. If they have a small team and a small check they are more likely to stay in the game.
Final thoughts from my experience that are the most common obstacles you have to overcome when you are in the online marketing world.

The Struggle for Network Marketers in the online world is real. 

You have to deal with this struggles day by day until you found your way through this. Check out the winning the game of money it is a mindset program and helps you get focus and grow above yourself.
Implementing a system together with the right mindset is very important to succeed in the online marketing world.

If you are thinking of making a career as a Network Marketer, then you have to learn how to overcome each one of the challenges, and there will be more challenges coming your way the higher you climb the ladder of success.

A small piece of advice 

My Advice for any Network Marketer out there who are struggling in creating a system and get clarity. Understand what you sell and who you market too. Be convinced about the product you sell.

When you choose online marketing, then join a community with like-minded people as being an entrepreneur can be a lonely place.

Don’t do it alone join an online learning platform 

Being part of a great community is, and it is essential to talk to people who go through the same struggles as you.

This learning platform helps me to communicate with like-minded people and share and exchange things that work and don’t work.

My Conclusion about this product.

I can highly recommend this program and when you want to change your life and your thinking than this program is for you. It is not cheap, but if it would I guess we would not take it seriously and just add it to our collection of programs and collect dust.

I have used this product that is also why I can give you a detailed report. I am a member of this program. 

You really have to go through and put in the time and effort. Fill out the worksheets and follow the reflection on yourself.

It might become for some painful going through this. But you have the support of the community and there will always be someone there to help you.

John has a great track record and if you go back in his history you can see that he turned his life around and he knows what he is talking about. I like what John does with all the new brain science research he attends and follows through. It always depends on an individual on how successful you become.

It all comes down to what is the price for success? Can we put a price on it?

How is digital Marketing changing in 2020? Is this the beginning of a new era?

the change in digital Marketing in 2019

Do we need a new Digital Marketing Strategy in 2020?

Do you think Digital Marketing is evolving and things will change the way we do it now? When you are in Internet Marketing, flexibility and evolving quickly to go with the flow is essential. When you are just starting, or you are already an experienced digital Marketer, it is not always easy to keep up with all the changes, and it can be overwhelming.

Digital Marketing made easy in 2019

I watched a video from Neil Patel about the changes in 2019 and what he says is significant for every Internet Marketer in staying on top of things. In short, you need to fine-tune your Internet Marketing more than ever.

He stretches the fact that if you are not able to progress with the change, then there is a good chance that you will stay behind, and your competitors are getting ahead of you.

One thing he said made me a bit worry about the things that have been working for the past last years will not work anymore. I was curious about what would that be.

Change Nr. 1 How will digital marketing change in 2020 and what you need to do to thrive and succeed.

The first thing you need to know is that digital marketing is moving to an omnichannel approach. You used to be able to build a business with just one channel.

For example, Facebook grew by just telling everyone to invite your friends. They would take that address book, actually your address book, and invite all your friends automatically even without your permission. That has changed, and those tactics don’t work as well as they used to.

Neil Patel stretches the fact that he does not say they don’t work anymore what he is saying is that they don’t work so well anymore as they did before.
When the Internet Marketing moved to an omnichannel approach which now you have to use tactics like
• Growth hacking,
• Pay Per Click,
SEO, Keyword research
• Content Marketing,
• Social Media
• Banner Ads
• SSL is a must
• Site Speed
• the list goes on

Internet Marketing in 2019

The more channels you use, the better it is for you. Most of these channels are crowded and overloaded. Everyone is using Facebook and Instagram and you can find endless training and content.
You have to use them all to be ahead of your competition in 2020.

I know it is much work, but thanks to marketing software’s like blog2 social you can automate your sharing of your blogs. Pinging your blog is still essential if you use pingler.com you can also automate that part.

Change Nr.2 The Move is on in Digital Marketing Voice Search.

The second thing you need to know and most of you will not like this, and the search is moving to voice search. By 2020 ComScore estimates that half the searches on Google will be through voice search.

Right now, two out of every five adults are using voice search. Yes, that means kids are not using it so much but still by 2020 they are saying half of all searches not just from adults, but half of all searches are going to be the voice search.

I have to admit I do not use voice search, but I will look into it. I made my mother’s Samsung tablet with voice search, and she is quite happy with it.
Have you used voice search before and if you do say yes please comment below? If not also leave a comment would be interesting to see who has used voice search and who hasn’t.


If you want to do well in 2019, you need to leveraging voice search. The way how you do this is one make sure your site is https because most of the sites throughout the top are HTTPS these days.
Now many hosts supply the SSL free of charge, but two years ago you had to pay dearly for it. Now you can get the SSL also for free on the Internet.

SSL meaning = Secure Socket Layer. It makes a site trustworthy and secure, especially for online payments.

Site speed is essential for your site to make the visitors experience pleasant.

Your site needs to load fast site speed is important. If it doesn’t load fast, you are not going to do as well with voice search. You will lose customers in the process.

Question and Answers Short and to the point.

When people are typing in questions, they typically typing in longer-term phrases, so your answers to these questions need to be short and to the point. If your answers are a paragraph long, you are not doing so well when compared to if you answer one sentence long.


Change Nr. 3 Optimise your conversion. Don’t leave money on the table.

Don't leave money on the table in digital Marketing

The third one is conversion optimisation. Advertising is getting more and more expensive over time; that is one thing that will never change.

The only way you are going to be able to compete and stay ahead is through conversion optimisation. The more you optimise your landing page for conversions the better it will be for you.

Make sure you are using tools like Crazyegg which allow you to do A/B testing so you can squeeze more conversions from the traffic you are getting.

Have an Exit Popup on your site.

I know we all hate pop-ups, but before your visitor’s exit, your site makes him give you his email address with a breathtaking a free offer.hUse the Hello Bar which allows exit intent email collections. There are different memberships, and for the beginning, you can use the free version.

Again, that will help you to get more from users and visitors that you do have. If You don’t do this as years go on you are going, get ground out by the competitors because they are going to spend more money then you and they are going to crush you.

So, focus on conversion optimisation even though it is not sexy, and most people don’t like talking about it in marketing.

Change 4 Implement your Sales Funnels.

The fourth tactic I have for you is leverage funnels. Marketing funnels are going to be more popular than ever in 2019.
Before people just used the funnels to optimise their campaigns to hey, I am buying ads, how many sales am I getting. Now you need to look at up sales, down sales, cross-sales, Lifetime value customer and churn.

Make Money with Affiliate Marketing.
Work from home and be your own boss. Internet marketing means getting the word out on the web and it means creating brilliant content. The only problem is that very few people have any idea what makes the web tick. Find out what you need to know.
We respect your privacy. As I hate spam, we will not spam you.

Sales Funnels across all Products.

Whether you have a physical product, digital product or doing lead generation, you need to track everything from a visitor to a conversion point, that’s revenue. For your visitors to keep buying, the lifetime value of the customer and that is why funnels are essential.

If you do not know how to create a funnel go and check out the tools like clickfunnels.com

Change 5 Content Marketing is it declining?

Content Marketing won’t work as well anymore. Think about it anytime you search, most of the articles that are at the top are content marketing.
Blogging is so popular and so played out, that everyone is regurgitating the same information repeatedly.

Unless you are creating amazing new information that people haven’t heard before you are not going to do well, your Content should be quality content. Just writing for the sake of it will not do. Learn how to create unique content here. Click below.

Content Marketing won’t work as efficiently to get links and social shares unless you are creating amazing content that’s new that people haven’t seen before.

Change 6 The Power of YouTube and Video

Video Content. Some people love to read and some people who like to watch. Any Internet marketer needs to produce Video content.
Videos keep people engaged, people leaving comments and the Youtuber will respond.

Video Content is the future;

People want to engage through video. You know what Facebook gives you more views if it is a video, youtube gives you a ton of views and likes and LinkedIn does as well.
You need to be leveraging video you can not take it for granted.

Change Nr. 7 Podcasts are back more prominent than ever before.

This is the last one for you. I remember in 2004 I was listening to some podcast on my iPhone and the iPhone had a unique app for all the updates of the podcasts.

Podcasting is taking over. Did you know that 45 % of the people who listen to podcasts have a household income above $ 75000? That is much money. What it means is that people listen to your podcast; they are going to be better buyers than most marketing channels out there.

It would be best if you created a podcast, everyone is using their mobile phones these days, everyone is driving to work, and most people listen to a podcast YouTube or mindset audio.

Podcasts are coming back in Internet Marketing

Everyone is listening to something each day on their mobile phone.
Podcasting makes it easy where people can listen to your content on the go. It is such a hectic world out there. It would help if you had a podcast so people can listen to you while they are dealing with their hectic life.

Leverage these strategies, and you will do much better in 2019.
Digital Marketing is changing, and if you look at the platforms like social media, you can see that every few months some new rules and some new changes are implemented.

Are Keywords Important For SEO? If So Where Can You Find The Best Keywords?

Jaaxy the best keyword tool

What are Keywords?

Any Keyword serves a goal in helping you to find the customers who are searching for a product and with the right keywords, they will land on your site.

Is the basic SEO for a website old and out of date or are Keywords important for SEO and relevant for any website owner? This question came up today when I came back from a meeting with my friends. 

are keywords important for seoA great start of my Day to be surprised.

So here I am coming back from this general get together meeting we have each month, and I am still a bit puzzled about the fact, that my friends think Keywords are out of date.

We are 8 friends. Some of them are bloggers for a magazine, and some of them work for a news and advertising agency.

Today was a bit different because one of my friends has a private Affiliate Blog as a second business and she complained that since 3 months her ranking dropped and she has lost a 1/3 of her visitors to her website. ( there was a simple solution to that read to the end)

marketing into a new adventureSurprise, Surprise 

I ask her if she changed her keyword tool or did she change keywords and she looked at me as I am coming from the moon. She really asks me if I am serious?
Of course, I am serious as Keywords are essential for SEO.

To my surprise 4 of the other Friends agreed with my friend. I looked a bit puzzled and surprised as I believe that all Websites should have Basic Search Engine Optimization done. It starts already when you set up your site. Am I wrong all these years?

Search Engines become much smarter and recognise if you do Keyword stuffing.

Yes, it is true that the search engine and the digital world has come a long way. It has been more than 15 years in simply using keywords on a website or article.
That was at these times the only way for Search engines to understand what your site or article is about.

I agree with my friend that Search Engines have become much smarter, but never less Google and Bing use hundreds of signals to decipher and rank your site.

Yes, they factor in your comments and what people say about your site. As I see it, the content will be put in a graph like the method of topics and Google and Bing perform all kinds of semantic analysis.

Keywords are still a part of the foundation of the Search engines? As this is a basic how the search engine understands your website.

Why are Keywords important to SEO and to any Website?

google search enginesBasic Settings everyone should have done for their site.

If they want to be found on Google, Bing, Yahoo, and all the other smaller search engine.  

When setting up a blog and creating lots of content for an Affiliate Blog, you should follow a few basic rules use the basic settings for your Website.

Some Affiliates just set up a Site without the basic knowledge of SEO. Then they are wondering why no one is visiting their site, or fail in business.

A proper set up for a website is the same important as you would set up a physical business. When you start a physical Business you have to have a few basic steps in place to be able to operate efficiently.

SEO is still an essential task for Website Owners. It starts with your Website or Blog.

  • Indexed by search engine: Make sure your settings allow the search engines like google, bing, yahoo, ask.com, etc. index you. Inside of your dashboard you have the option to set it to Privacy and no index for your blog.
  • Please note non-index are only pages you do not want to indexed like privacy policy, Terms and condition, affiliate disclaimer etc… Please check that you have not ticked the privacy box and you set it up correctly.
  • Title and Tagline: Give your site a title and a tagline. Best with a Keyword from your niche. You can use a random keyword or use a keyword tool to check what people searching for in your niche. Filling this spot with relevant keywords that tell people what your site is all about. Under the Settings tab again, you want to go into the General section. Here it says Site Title and Tag Line. general settings site title and tagline
  • Ping your content: You want to let search engines know that there is new content. Go to writing category under settings scroll down to update service. Find good ping services and enter there URL in there. It helps other sites to know that you have new content. ( this is optional and up to you) I use the free version of pingler.com
  • Categorise your blog: Important for any website is categorise your blogs and deliver a good navigation system. When a visitor lands on your site, you want it to be sticky. Sticky means they stay around for a while, not clicking out after they read one blog post. ( Bounce rate)
  • Good Navigation: A good navigation is essential and a list of categories and recent or popular post in your sidebar (easily done with widgets), let your visitors know there is more good content on your side.are keywords important for blogs
  • Permalinks: Again go to the settings section in your dashboard. Click on Permalinks. This option should be posted name. What this means is that after your domain and the word blog with URL will have the name of the post. Like this https:// your domain.com/blog/keyword-relevant-blog –title.
  • Keywords: Use both broad and long tail keywords in your post and pages. There are always affiliates who do not understand the meaning of broad and long tail keywords, and they try to rank for the most general keyword in their niche. Like “health or diet” Yes, it is easier to rank in search engines when you use a long tail keyword, but you should check the competition of that long tail keyword with a proper keyword tool. Like Jaaxy the free keyword tool.
  • Long Tail Keyword Phrase: that would be something like “ the best diet after pregnancy” It happens all the time that over time when your Authority is rising you will also rank for the broad keyword like diet.
  • Sitemap: This is important. Submit your sitemap to google. You can do with the google sitemap plugin or through an SEO Optimizing software on your sites like All in one SEO or Yoast. Otherwise, you have to do it manually create the site map that helps to guide the robots and spiders around your domain.
  • All in one SEO Plugin for wordpress
  • SEO Optimizer plugins: will give your blog a boost. There are different plugins available, and the most common are All in one SEO and Yoast. Those plugins will help you to maximise your blog post on autopilot. Do some research I use All in one SEO and on another site I use Squirrly. Both work well. Consider your needs and choose one.

For the free keyword tool, I use Jaaxy Pro now. Before when I started, I used Jaaxy the free version as it is an excellent Keyword research tool with detail for the keywords and long tail keywords also called the low hanging fruits.

A Few Features that make the Keyword Tool Jaaxy unique.

Jaaxy the best keywordtoolJaaxy is collecting search data from the three major search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo. It displays it in a simple manner. Easy to read and understand without all this technical riddle language.

A lot of Keyword tools use too much technical jargon and most of the time you do not understand the meaning and for what you need all this.

The Google Keyword Planner is a tool that is mainly used for people who use Adwords for advertising. I still use keyword planner to get an idea what people are searching for, You can also use Google Trends for your search.
For me, Jaaxy the keyword search tool is easy to use and to understand. Try it out below it is free.

 

Understand the General Terms from the Jaaxy Keyword search tool.

Jaaxy the keywordtool a great free option

Keyword:

A phrase what people type into the search engines like google, bing, ask.com to find what they are looking for.

AVG:

The average number of searches the keyword receives per month.

Traffic:

Visits to your website when you achieve first-page ranking on search engines.

QSR:

Quoting search result: The number of competing websites ranked on google for this exact keyword.

KQI:

Keyword Quality Indicator. Green is great, yellow is ok, and red is poor.

SEO:

A score based on traffic and competition the higher the score, the more likely you will rank for that keyword on the first page ( scale 1-100 the higher, the better)keywords are essential for every business

 SEO and Keywords for your Website so what is the Happy End.

My other 3 friends did not agree with me, and in the end, my oldest friend agreed with me. So we have been 2 against 6. What is ok and I agree with their reasoning.
Two of my friends do both paying for advertisement and using social media. They use Keywords for advertising. 

My other four friends using social media with their networking and social groups. It seems that all is working for one or the other.
I was allowed to look at the website of my friend (where the stats went down,) and I figured out that somehow she made in every post she ticked the no index box and the no follow box. No index tick box on a blog page

I ask her for a reason, and she was not aware of it. But she also said that she fired one of her VA because she was getting too lazy and was writing blogs below average.
So we both guess the VA thought she get back at her in putting the no-index on.

For me, this is low as you can hurt a business with that. 
All is fine now, and my friend is still not convinced that keywords are essential to any website and blog. 
In today’s world, I quote one of my friends there are many other tools and tricks you can use to rank high in the search engines like google, bing, yahoo.

5 years ago if you ask me, she said “ are keywords important for SEO I would have answered yes they are. Today in 2019 it is not anymore. The internet revolved, and there are so many possibilities to get around it. ( well I wondered what they are ) unfortunately, she could not tell me …

What is your idea? Are Keywords important to SEO? I believe so, but if you have another method, please share with us until then I will use my jaaxy keyword tool and look for great keywords.

What is the best way to decrease bounce rate on your website and increase your page views on your website?

Decreasing Bounce Rate and increasing your pageviews1

Amazing Tips on how to decrease bounce rate on your website and make your visitors stay longer. 

So, you decided to start a blog, and in your mind, you can already imagine that you have lots of people reading your blog. After all, what you write is interesting and provides a lot of information.

Bounce Rate and Page Views

Picture source: Kissmetrics.com 

Just because you have a Website doesn’t mean you will have visitors to your site. It is like a shop when you have no customers you have no business. To get visitors into your shop you need promotion.

When you want visitors to your site you need to have your blog or website done with SEO ( Search Engine Optimization) or you launch ads. In general, you have to bring your website in front of people. You have to be visible.

As a website owner, you will have different difficulties in bringing people to your website or making them stay longer on your Website.

What is the definition of Website Bounce rate?

According to Wikipedia, the definition is …Bounce rate is an Internet marketing term used in web traffic analysis. It represents the percentage of visitors who enter the site and then leave (“bounce“) rather than continuing to view other pages within the same site. ( source Wikipedia)

If you have a high bounce rate it means that many visitors who are coming to your site will end up leaving your site without going to the 2nd page.
Unfortunately, this is decreasing your page view per visit.

We respect your privacy. Promise we will not spam you. We hate to spam the same as you.

What is the definition of Page view?

 

Every time a visitor visits any webpage, it is called page view( as the visitor is viewing your page)
A Page view is commonly confused with website hits. People use hits to describe a pageview.
From a technical part, a hit is recorded for each object that loads for a page view. Please note …Page view and website hit are not the same.

What is good to average bounce rate?

As a rule of thumb, a bounce rate in the range of 26 to 40 percent is excellent. 41 to 55 percent is roughly average. 56 to 70 percent is higher than average, but may not be cause for alarm depending on the website. Anything over 70 percent is disappointing for everything outside of blogs, news, events,

Page Views play a vital role in affiliate marketing. If you have an affiliate website then your website will be mostly monetised with banner ads, and that means the page view plays a more significant roll in getting paid by the company who places the ads.

Bounce Rate and Banner Ads.

The Bounce rate and display ads or banner ads play an important part when you use google adsense or any other display ad provider.

If you trying to build a loyal audience the bounce rate is a vital insight for you to understand what your visitors looking for.

The higher the bounce rate, the more money you lose.

The lower the bounce rate, the more money you can make.

The lower your bounce rate is the longer your visitor stays on your Website. That is an indication for you that your site is attractive to your visitors.

Google Analytics and Bounce Rate. 

Have a look at your bounce rate in Google Analytics and see what is your bounce rate on your site, or you might know it already, and that is why you are reading my blog.
I will show you some ideas and tricks on how to improve your bounce rate and page view. I will share a few methods for that.

1. How to decrease your website bounce rate and increase your page views through #internal links.

Interlinking from your pages to each other on posts or pages within the content will bring you more page views. It is a proven fact.
How to do Interlinking? It is so easy, search for the post you want to link and add the link to your post or page.

Always make sure that internal linking and external linking open in a new tab. Otherwise, you might lose the visitor as the visitor might not find his way back to your site.

If you interlink keep in consideration that they should be relevant to each other. That is a pleasant experience for the reader or visitor, and your visitor might come back to search for more on your site.

To do that you need to have a few blogs on your website and if you have lots of content on your site than this method is excellent, as it will open the floodgates when it gets started.

Linking your Content

When you are planning to interlink old content with new content, there are two ways on how you can do it.
1. Do it manually. This means you spent time going back and forward from new to old blogs.
2. Do it the easy way with a plugin.
The plugin I find quite useful it is called thirsty Affiliate

ThirstyAffiliates Affiliate link Manager

It is normally a link manager, and use it for internal linking.
Did you know that internal linking also increases your SEO besides reducing the bounce rate and increasing the page views?

2. Showing related posts on your Website below your Post or Page.

It is like you look into the TV after one show or series is finish it says

“ next comes XYZ “

Visitors will leave your page if you do not show them to a post that is related or just a post with similar interests. Just call it favourite post, or latest post…

There are many ways how you can add a post or page related to the page or post you are showing.
You can, of course, do it manually, and some themes have that coded into the theme.

If it is not in your theme, you can always use a plugin and automate it.

3. Show excerpts on front and archived pages to reduce bounce rate and increase your page views. 

When you show excerpts on front and archived pages, it will reduce the loading time for your site.

What is an important point as you will know from yourself it the site is loading to slow you will leave the site?

When you show excerpts posts on your site, it also increases the page views.
You should almost never show the whole post on the archived pages and or front page.

If your bounce rate is high then this is an excellent way to reduce the bounce rate and increase the page view.

Just imagine in your mind this scenario, you go to a website and find a dozen images in one post and then the site shows ten of the fully-loaded picture posts on one page.

Isn’t that a waste of your time? Scrolling through to get to the Post you wanted to read?

I believe most of the visitors will leave as the experience is not pleasant. The next obstacle is the website, will load so slowly. Can you imagine that?

What would you do…? I think like everyone would do, leave the site.
Most of the good themes have that feature of showing excerpts on front and archived pages already built-in.
Yes, the world of website building has become advanced compare to  10 years ago.

4. Increase your page views and reduce bounce rate using an interactive sidebar.

Any sidebar in a website is playing a crucial role in increasing page views and reducing bounce rates.
Unfortunately, it is so many times overlooked by Website owners.
A great way is to show your favourite posts
• Day by day
• Week by Week
• Month by Month
• Alternatively, the recent posts on a single post page.

In short show your favourite posts in the sidebar. You can customise them with stunning images to catch the interest of the visitors and redirect them to other posts on your side.
You can put a small video into the sidebar from your favourite post …. Be creative the possibilities are there.

Remember each extra or additional interactive sidebar content feature is a potential avenue to keep the visitor’s attention on your site. You can check your website speed with some free tools.

 5. Pop-ups, ads and distracting advertising

When you have pop-ups on your side, let them slide in at the corner as if people are reading your content and the pop up is coming up they get annoyed and might leave your site.

Be friendly with your pop up and don’t make it annoying. Pop-ups are distractive, and lots of people hate them.

There are different ways how to place pop-ups find a good and friendly way.

keep your pop up at the corner, and show them at the exit.
Be aware and cut down on distractions like auto-play audio, autoplay video and banner ads on your site.

 6. Splitting up your long posts

If you are a person who loves to write super long posts, then I suggest splitting them up.

Lots of people do not favour a long post, and they will click away if the post seems to be too long.

Google loves long content, we all know, but a long article with 10K will be a bit overwhelming for a visitor. Create an ebook out of your blog and offer them to download it. Of course with an opt-in form. In this way, you can capture their email. 

A long article will also have a slower loading time, so break them up with the WordPress #tag in your post.

How to split the post

Simple go to post editor in your post, and switch to text mode and add the
WordPress <!–next page–> tag in your post. anywhere you want to break the post into the next page. Your post will have multiple pages.

Take caution that you do not trigger an adverse effect, if you do not have a sufficient amount of content on each page, then your visitor gets upset.
Splitting pages up should go from 5K below that do not split.

7. Encourage your visitor for random browsing a great way to decrease your bounce rate. 

Random browsing is so easy and so incredibly useful.

What you have to do?
Place a “Random Post” or “Explore button” in the above fold area of your page or post.
It is a simple button that redirects visitors to random posts on your website.
You can again use a plugin

Redirect URL to post

Try it out, and you can see if it suits you. But remember not every plugin is compatible with your site. Test it out first.

A word of caution in reducing your bounce rate. 

Before you use a plugin make sure it is compatible with your website. As it it is not compatible it can break your Website.
Not every plugin is compatible with your theme. Please also remember that many plugins will slow down your website.

Site speed is a vital component in reducing your bounce rate. 

So choose wisely what you want to implement and what suits you for your site. Test your site speed before and after installing a plugin.

Conclusion:

For every problem, there is a solution. For decreasing the bounce rate and increasing page views, there are many options available. What is best for you it is up to you, and you have to decide.

It does not matter what you do, one thing is for sure whenever you create content, keep in mind that it is important that it is quality content and not just written so you have content on your website.
Some of the tips will only work if you have enough content. Every Tip works in its own way. Just try them out and see what suits you best.

Forced Retirement Doesn’t Mean the End of Your Career. Take action and start your own online business with 0 experience.

Is there success without stress

Choose a work that you love, and you won’t have to work another day. ” Confucius

I love this quote as it is so on the spot and wise. I never gave much thought about that until a good friend got retrenched from work after 34 years of service.

Just like that. He fell into a deep depression for almost a year. It was so hard to see him suffer. He was 58 years young. It was hard for him being forced into early retirement.

The things got worse when all his Resumes are returned with a negative response. I know he applied for hundreds of jobs, some of them would have accepted him but for a peanut salary and ridiculous hours. 

When Things got worse. A stairway to depression…

Whenever I spoke to him, he was telling me that nothing works and he will live from social welfare. At that stage, we could not talk sense into him as he would find a word or a sentence to start a fight with you.

I felt down for 2-3 days, and I stopped calling him on a regular base. Don’t judge me please, but somehow I felt the need to protect myself and my energy being brought down to a lower frequency. start a new career after being fired

Eventually, we could convince him to get professional help, and for 2 years he is stable as my friend found a new career in the online world and he is happy.
He actually believes now that it was his destiny.

He found his passion in the online world and his income has doubled over the last couple of month.
Whenever our friends are retrenched or losing their job, his words are “Forced Retirement Doesn’t Mean the End of Your Career. Life goes on and when one door closes another one opens.

That is said so easy, I know, but it is true.
That brought me to the idea to write a blog for people losing a job, a company downsizing or just being forced into early retirement. There is hope.


Retrenching and downsizing a major effect on Peoples Life and Self-confidence. 

When you are retrenched because a company is downsizing and you are only above 50 years plus, it is forced retirement. Why? It is so hard for people that age to find another job for themself. It is not impossible but it takes longer, and bosses usually think twice before they employ someone above 50 plus.

It is also a big hit against your self-confidence. When you work ages for a company and then get given the papers, it is like the first time looking for a job. You did not do it for a long time.

That brings me to the famous words from Will Rogers.
That brings me to the famous words from Will Rogers.
He once said about how half of your life is wasted attempting to find something to fill the void of all the time you rushed around trying to save.

Retirement is not the end of the worldMany people have lots of productive years left after retirement, and many don’t realise it. For many there is plenty of time to start a new career, that will lead to a different lifestyle and enjoy numerous success.

The Golden Age Of Forced Retirement. Success and Failure.

People aren’t content anymore to accept the golden watch and then be delegated to the life of retirement. For many retirements comes with the thought of a life of isolation.

 Let me tell you it is not, being at home 24/7 and doing what you want to do feels relaxing and is fun for a while, and if you do not organise your time in a great and productive way, pretty quick boredom sets in and it become difficult to spend the days in forced nothingness.

Depression and Retirement. Why many older people are scared of Retirement.

I have seen friends who retired and were on a high roll the first year, they did all they travel, they enjoyed vacations, slept in, stayed with family and friends, throw parties, and when the excitement wears off, they become bored and the feeling of not being needed kicks in.

It went so far with some of our friends that they went into a stage of Depression. Luckily our friends came out with something new in mind, and now they live a life like a  Laptop Lifestyle Entrepreneur. They started a home-based business work from home and earned money online.

Retirement is exciting and challenging. It is up to you how you see yourself. 

The body is ageing but if you stay young at heart and open-minded you can move mountains.

Not everyone is the same, for some is retirement an active and challenging time and for others, they look for part-time jobs.

Rather than finding a job that will confine you to certain hours of the day, think about starting an online business. Working from home and earning money online is an attractive solution for many Retires.

The most successful Entrepreneurs are people above 50 years young at heart.

What do you need to start an Online Business?

Starting an Online Business is not difficult, and all you need is

  • Passion set into action as passion alone does nothing
  • Computer
  • Internet
  • Time
  • Determination
  • Persistence
  • Love
  • willing to succeed. 

When you have that you can start an online business anytime. I have started an online business, and I am pleased that I did this step now already, one of the benefits is that it does not keep me restraint from travelling or moving around where I want to live.

3 Tips for Launching Successfully Pinterest Group Boards.

Pinterest a great way to promote your brand

Launching successfully Pinterest Boards is easy with these 3 Tips.

Over the last year, Pinterest has multiplied, and it is now said that it is on its course to catch up to Twitter and amazingly for second place behind Facebook in the social networking market.
If we would receive for every minute we spent on social media a cent, there would be a lot of social media millionaires.

3 Tips for launching successfully Pinterest boards

Being a creative person I love doing it, but it is time-consuming in the beginning.  
Every marketer who is familiar with social media will spend at least two hours of their day to engage and interact with their followers on social media.

Why? Social media is a great tool to drive traffic to your website, socialise and make your blogs known and recognised.
Pinterest is one of the fastest-growing search engines in social media.

Time-consuming Social Media.

It is a proven fact that People spent more time on social media an average of 2hours and 23 minutes a day. 

how many hours people spend on social media

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google or any other search engine instead of just being time lost, use it as a time where you work on your online business to create a second income what can develop into a full time, work from home business.

How do you maximize and priorities your time on social media?

Everything needs time, and social media takes time out of your daily schedule, so how do you organise and manage the time that you get the most out of your exposure to Social Media?

A quick note from me for new marketers.

When you get started please add one Social Media account, every 2 months at least you are familiar with the ones you started already. The reason I say this is, it can happen very quickly that you get overwhelmed and you will stop for the wrong reason.

Create a Pinterest Group Board to get the most exposure in scheduling your pins.

If you are new to Pinterest, you might only be familiar with regular boards and pins.
When I started first with Pinterest, I had no idea what I should do and how to create a Pin or board. It wasn’t easy for me in the beginning, but I decide not to give up. There was not much training around, so I bought myself a course on Udemy, and it gave me the basics.

Now you can find a lot of information on youtube and on different channels for Pinterest training. Most of Pinterest Training is free.
The regular boards are ok, and you can change them into a group board. But before you do that you should have around 500 followers and 10 boards on Pinterest.

People will not follow group boards if the followers are low. Creating a group board is a great incentive to increase your traffic to your Website and your followers, but it also comes with a few headaches and, you need to follow and set a few rules to manage a group board.

Tips for a great Pinterest group board

I started to create a few group boards since I am on Pinterest, and I will explain and outline you the basic of what to do and what not to do.
I have seen a fantastic increase in my Pinterest followers since I am using the Pinterest group boards and I made a few mistakes and I will tell you what to look out for as we go along.

Pinterest Group Boards Demystified

I will explain to you in this post the advantages of group boards the headaches, and I will outline how you can get started right away.

What is a Pinterest Group Board?

A Pinterest Group Board is just like a regular Pinterest board, the only difference is that you will have additional Collaborators.
What does that mean? beside you the Board Owner (who can pin on this board), other Collaborators are allowed to pin on that board too.

Those Boards are called Contributor Boards.

Those Pinterest Group Boards have different names like contributor boards, community boards, shared boards, and collaborative boards. It doesn’t matter what they are named or called they all have the same purpose.

Join a Pinterest Group Board.

PinGroupie a Pinterest group board list

If you want to join a Pinterest group and you want to have the insights of that particular board than go to PinGroupie, there you find a lot of boards listed what you can join. Also, you can, later on, submit your Board there to find followers.

joining group boards

When you are in Pinterest and you look at people boards, you can see from the group icon at the left bottom corner, if this is a group board is a single Collaborator or if it has more than one collaborator. Below is a snapshot with the explanation.

Why should you create a Pinterest Group Board?

It is a great way to organise your ideas in bringing ideas and people together. It is a mutual benefit for you, your brand and your followers. It will also grow the number of your followers faster.

Multiply and increase your Re-pins with Pinterest Group Boards

The more followers you have, the more likely that others will follow you.
All the followers will see your content, and if they repin your Pins the more people, you will have to come to your website and click throughout the content. They might even buy your products.
What that means is very simple the more traffic you get to your website the more potential subscribers, clients and customers you can get.

Increase your followers in a big way

When users usually decide to follow the contributor’s board most of them click “follow all” not everyone but 60% do, and that means they will be added to a group board you are part of. This exposure through other group boards increases your visibility to other users, and your followers will grow at a faster rate.

Repining and joining group boards, as well as creating group boards are time-consuming. You can spend easily a whole day doing it. It is fun, don’t get me wrong but if you are trying to make money online then you have to use your time wisely. There are services available like Tailwind ( free and paid) to schedule your pins.

How to integrate Pinterest Group Boards into your Business

The five areas where you can incorporate a Pinterest Group board

  • Planning
  • Promotion
  • Collaboration
  • Networking
  • Authority ( Brand establishment)

If you work with a team on a specific project, then you can use group boards to share tips, training, materials and resources. If you do not want to share the board than make it secret and no one will see except the people you specify.

Make People aware of your Brand.

group Boards in pinterest

A great way to share your Product or make people aware of your Brand. You can interact and establish your Credibility with your Brand.
The best way is to start with a Pinterest Group Board and contribute frequently to build your brand.

You can do this in any business, Fashion, wedding planners or event planners, Building industry, Designers, Coach, you can be as creative as you want. I have used the group boards for fundraising and had great success with it.
You can also run a contest or support a charity.

How do you get started.

When you want to create a Contributor Board, you need to go to your Pinterest account login and click on the add +tab ( boards)
Select the option to create a Board.
The first step is the same as you create a standard Pinterest Board.

Step 1.
When you want to create a Contributor Board, you need to go to your Pinterest account login and click on the add +tab ( boards)
Step 2. Select the option to create a Board.
The first step is the same as you create a standard Pinterest Board.

Pinterest Group Boards

Step 3. Choose a name /title for your new board, ( use a keyword)
Step 4. Select a category where the board fits in
Step 5. Decide on you want to make it public or secret.
Step 6. Write your Description what your board is about.
Step 7. Save the board and add some pins.
When you have done that start adding some of your pins and re-pin some of your follower’s pins.

Step 8.  Last step…Click on edit your board ( the little pencil sign) and make your board a collaborator board.

step by step instruction for the pinterest group board


The final step you need to decide is who you want to add as a contributor.

There are two ways how to invite people to join your Pinterest group board.
If you invite people to join your group board, please keep in mind that you must follow at least one of their boards and they should be following at least one of your boards. Be selective and just don’t invite anyone. Invite People who are passionate about and fit the topic.

Invite Collaborators of a Pinterest group board through name

Invite other collaborators through email.
When you enter the email address into the field “Who can pin”than Pinterest will email them an invitation and prompt them to join Pinterest.
The second choice is, and this is more natural and I prefer it that way that you can add the username of a follower you would like to invite.


Again there comes a condition with it, and that is that you need to follow them first.
When you start typing their name, Pinterest will automatically show you the potential matches, i.e. people with those letters or name in their username.
Any of your current boards can be made into a group board. Choose a board that has already a lot of pins and do the same as above.

Add your Board to PinGroupie

PinGroupie is a tool that lets you participate in group boards, your board gets exposed to potential followers who want to join your board. Joining different boards gives you the chance to drive traffic to your site.

You can also see there the most popular boards. Choose your niche and search the boards. Thousands of users that are on favourite boards engage actively in the group boards. If you want to get more exposure for your board, you can list it at PinGroupie, but the rule for Pingroupie is that you need at least 5 collaborators, 250 followers and 50 pins.

My advice for you and a word of caution ( here comes a headache)

Every time a contributor pins to a group board you will get a notification from Pinterest. My recommendation is that you turn off these notifications otherwise your inbox is bombarded with notifications and unnecessary emails.
How to turn off the notifications?
It is simple, select the group board in question, and click the edit board button, then click the turn off notification tab.
Do regular checks on your Contributors and Group Boards.
In your group board, you can decide who do you accept to join, and it is your choice of accepting someone into your group board. Keep it Spam free.
Remove the spammers and block them.

Housekeeping for your Pinterest Group Board

#Make sure and regularly check your board that it is a benefit for your business. Choose your audience carefully, so they are matched for your group board. (For example, someone who sells ladies fashion does not fit into a group board for electronic gadgets. )


#Grow your followers, the more followers a group board has, the higher the exposure you can expect for your business.

You will be able to see all the content that is currently on that board. New pins that get added to the group board will also appear on your Pinterest feed, regardless of the person who is pinning the pins. Unfortunately, Pinterest has no way to filter the pins what you can see.

Because of that, you might see pins from people you are not following, and there might be some spam and inappropriate content.
I make it a point of regular checking and monitoring your feeds, to ensure that you can quickly remove and spot something that is not desired from your part.

Take action immediately when inappropriate content and pins are pinned.

Remove a Pinterest Follower

How to remove someone from your group board?
If you added someone to a particular group board and the person is not following your rules, spams or post inappropriate content remove them.
Click the selected board, and click on the remove tab next to their name.

How to delete a board entirely.

Choose the selected board click edit and hit the delete button on the bottom left.

Leave a Group Board anytime.

If someone adds you to a group board than you can leave anytime, you want.
Choose the board and click leave the board again.
You will be asked by Pinterest if you are sure you want to leave. Click yes and go. You are now permanently removed from that group board.

Conclusion

Take caution and do not go overboard in sending too many invitations to people to join your group board. Pinterest can also ban you for a couple of days when they feel you are spamming.
Be careful and respectful not to annoy people. Not everyone wants to join a group board.
Avoid sending repeated requests. A good strategy is sent invitations to people who show an interest in your pins and can contribute to your business and brand.

Encourage people to join your group boards with your group board descriptions. Use some keywords and #hashtags to be found. State that you welcome contributors and anyone wants to join your group board should follow your board and comment on at least one pin of yours.

Make it easy for people to contact you add your email in the board description and ask people to send you an email to join.
Least not last create rules for your board. Note one of my rules is that I only want vertical pins like Pinterest that gives your group board an excellent overall and clean look. Canva is a great tool to create great pins.

That is all, it is not tricky and happy pining. I hope you enjoyed this blog “3 Tips for Launching a Successful Pinterest Group Board”
