A joint venture is nothing more than a business enterprise in which 2 or more companies combine forces multiplying their efforts.

Business joint ventures are the most powerful technique you can use to grow your business, hands down.

Here are the top 10 reasons why you should be doing business joint ventures:

1. Maximizes Leverage -

What better way to build your business then with the power of leverage? Let your joint venture partner do what he does best and you concentrate on what you do best. This focused action will create a synergy between the both of you multiplying your efforts like you would not believe.

2. It’s Free & Simple to Do -

Unless your using a joint venture broker, it is absolutely free to contact other marketers and ask them to joint venture with you. Here is a HUGE gem I’m going to share with you for free that has landed me more joint venture partners then I can count and exploded my online MLM business.

Do a simple Google search and find a website relevant with what you have to offer. If it looks like a good match then call up the owner of that site and hit them with your joint venture offer.

How do you find their number so you can actually call them? There is a website out there called Whois.com where you can find the name, email address, mailing address and phone number of anybody with a website. This is so powerful, this technique alone can triple your business in no time.

3. Builds Relationships With Other Businesses -

Success Is all about relationship building. The more relationships you establish, the more connections with other business owners you’ll have. Doing business joint ventures are the perfect place to start building relationships with other businesses.

4. One successful JV Can Be All You Need -

This is a true story. I have a friend and business partner, his name is Jared Defazzio and he landed a joint venture with a very well known online marketer. In his first month this well known online marketer made over $80,000 & being Jared recruited him into his business off the joint venture, Jared continues to get paid month after month for the rest of his life.

Jared is still to this day making 5 figures a month off of the efforts of this joint venture alone. Jared built his entire empire off of the art of joint ventures, he started with nothing including NO advertising budget.

5. Win Win Situation For Everybody -

Everyone is trying to make more money right? Of course and by doing a joint venture it is truly a win win for not just you but for everyone involved.

Here is a real life example. Let’s say you have a responsive list of 20,000 subscribers. And let’s say your potential joint venture partner has an amazing product which would perfectly compliment your list and he offers you 50% commission for every sale generated. Duh, all you have to do is endorse the product to your list and your going to make a nice payday.

You win because you make money with very little or no effort and your partner wins because all he did was tap into your list and split the profits so he had very little or no work to do either. You see how joint ventures are a total no brainer?

There is no wrong way in doing business joint ventures. Just be creative, have fun with it and go find some partners.

You will almost certainly run into difficult clients from time to time. Unfortunately, they are a part of doing business.
Most clients will be pleasant to work with, but we’ve all run into a handful who are simply confused or overwhelmed by the whole process, are concerned over progress, or simply need a bit more guidance in order to fully understand what you are offering, and how you are helping them.

Remember as well that not everyone is going to see the work that went on behind the scenes.
50 Things your Website Needs to Attract Clients

If they have no experience developing online businesses, it’s likely that you will want to take your time in explaining the process, what you and your team have been doing, and why it’s an important part in the growth of their online exposure.

For the most part, you should try to work with clients to make sure they are happy every step of the way, and to do your part in being understanding by putting yourself in their position.

Remember, these people trust in you, they have agreed to let you manage an important part of their business; their online presence and you need to be sincere in communicating with them every step of the way. 50 Things your Website Needs to Attract Clients

Clients who are very happy will potentially refer other clients to you in the future. This could mean a great deal of business.

How to Sell a Blog for the Highest Possible Price

July 28, 2014 in blogging | Comments (0)

Tags: , ,

Blogging has been around for a while now, and many bloggers who perhaps never thought about selling before find themselves thinking about it. I know I have. In order to get the most money, you should take the time to learn what’s involved, ie, learn exactly how to sell a blog.

Before we delve into some of the main factors involved in selling a blog that will bring top dollar, let’s back up a bit to understand why many bloggers are going this route (or thinking about doing so).

Selling a Blog: 2 Reasons It’s Becoming a Popular Option for Many Bloggers

I’d venture to say that many online entrepreneurs who started blogs did so with the idea of making a part-time or full-time living from it. But, once they realized how much work was involved and perhaps reached a plateau in their blog’s growth, then selling became an option – for two reasons:

(i) It’s Hard to Abandon a Blog: When you’ve been spent a year, two years or five years building a blog, it can be hard to outright abandon it, even if it’s not performing as well as you want.

I can speak from first-hand experience here. I have four blogs; three of them I actively update; two of them are critical to the sales of my e-books and e-classes; and one I update every two or three months.

The blog I update every few months has been, for all intents and purposes, abandoned. Yet, because I’ve had it since 2009, it’s hard to let go of.

(ii) Want to Move On: The other reason selling a blog becomes an attractive option for many bloggers is that sometimes, you just want to move on. It’s been my experience that many bloggers / web entrepreneurs have their hands in many pies.

For example, I write and sell ebooks online, do affiliate marketing, and run a freelance writing business as well. Blogging is a form of marketing I use to attract and retain customers for all of these income streams.

As you can see, it’s easy to get scattered as an online business owner, especially as a blogger. One reason, in my opinion, is that it’s just so darn easy to start a blog. But what happens is, once many web entrepreneurs “mature” (from a business standpoint), they start to pare down and hone in on their core business(es). So, they may drop blogs that don’t fit into their overall scheme.

I know some of mine didn’t. I’ve probably started – and abandoned – half a dozen blogs for this very reason. The three I actively update I will probably keep forever. I would love to sell my blog that’s only updated every few months – I just haven’t gotten around to taking the time to market it for sale.

Blogs for Sell: 4 Critical Areas Every Blogger Should Pay Attention to to Get the Most Money

Now that you know why selling blogs is becoming an option for many bloggers, let’s look at what you need to start doing if selling your blog is something you want to do some day.

I. Content: In most cases, a blog’s worth is intimately tied to its content. So beef up your content. How? Give your readers more of what they’re responding to, eg, look at your posts that get the most traffic, the post hat have the most comments, the post that readers ask you for more detail on, etc.

II. Social Media: Social media is a big component of driving traffic to a blog. So, work on building as large – and interactive – a community as you can, eg, increase your Twitter followers, your Facebook fans, your participation in LinkedIn groups.

III. Newsletter Subscribers: Ever heard the saying that the money is in the list? Well, this is definitely true with online businesses because customers rarely have the chance to interact with you face to face. In most cases, the larger your list, the more valuable your blog is.

IV. Traffic: All of the above factors drive traffic to your blog. And of course, the more it gets, the more you can get when you sell your blog.

How Much Money Can You Expect to Get When You Sell a Blog?

Valuations range from 1-3 times annual earnings, on up to five or six times for most blogs. For example, if your total earnings are $30,000 between Google AdSense, private ads and ebook sales, then you can expect someone to pay between $30,000 and $180,000 for your blog.

Selling a Blog? Why You Should Consult a Professional

Making money online with a blog is relatively straightforward (straightforward, not easy). And, it’s the very things like the ones discussed above that you pay attention to when learning to make money with a blog that will get you the highest price when you get ready to sell your blog, along with other factors.

Some of these other factors are: the age of the blog, domain names associated with it, niche it’s in, keywords it ranks highly for, how often it’s updated, expenses associated with running it, etc. So don’t go it alone. Consult a professional who sells businesses for a living; specifically one who has experience buying and selling virtual (web) properties.

Setting Membership Prices Starting Points

July 25, 2014 in Marketing | Comments (0)

Some people want a good starting point for pricing, so I’m going to give you some numbers you can use. Just keep in mind that pricing will vary greatly based on many factors, including special requests from the client, the client’s industry, and what type of site the client needs.

Obviously a fully functional e-commerce store would cost much more than a simple five page website, so keep that in mind. These are just rough guidelines to get you started!

5 Page Website : $250 – $500

Email Marketing Setup : $150-$300

Hosting : $5-$25 per month

Initial SEO for a 5 Page Website : $150-$300

Monthly SEO and Backlinking : $25-$100 per month

Monthly Email Marketing : $25-$200

Monthly Site Maintenance : $50-$150

Remember, these are just rough guidelines!

For example, monthly email marketing could be anywhere from $25 for one short email per month up to several hundred dollars if you are expected to send several messages per week, or if you have to craft long and very detailed messages.

Ultimately, your pricing will be highly dependent on what you feel you need to make for each service, and what exactly the client expects. Consider all options when creating your price structure.
12 Month Trial Of The Full Make My Website Sell Package

A client who pays you a recurring fee each month to host his or her website, and an additional fee to update it is far more valuable than a one-off project, and so you should consider adjusting your prices to offer them a feasible discount in order to retain them over the long run.

Unique Strategy For The Best Services Price

July 24, 2014 in Business | Comments (0)

One thing a lot of people struggle with is how to price their services. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, as your price will depend on many different factors.

For example, pricing would be affected by:

The current state of the economy

Your location, and how much competition exists.

How much you really need to make to cover expenses.

The type of service being offered, and time allocated to each project.

Perhaps the most important factor has to do with you personally. Ultimately, you need to make enough to make it worth your time to perform this service.

Determine what the absolute lowest price you would be willing to accept would be. Try to price your services at twice that rate. That way, if you have to come down in price to get the client, you’ll have a lot of leeway for negotiation before you reach your “lowest price”.

You’ll also have to take into consideration your location. If there are a lot of web design firms around your area, many websites may already have a website. If your competition is keen on internet marketing, they may also be offering some of the same services. You may have to price competitively in order to gain business.

The economy is also a major factor. As much as it sucks, you may have to price your services far lower than you normally would if the economy is especially bad. When the economy is suffering, businesses aren’t making as much money, so they wouldn’t be able to pay you as much as they normally would, however by acquiring their business early on, when the economy picks up, you can begin to increase your prices accordingly.

It’s easy as an entrepreneur to focus your attention on the cutting edge of new technologies, marketing strategies, and the latest tools. I know that doing so keeps me on my toes and I love to share new things with others. But in that focus there’s a danger of missing the obvious ways to generate more revenue and profit in your business.

These are the marketing gaps that show up more and more in any business that continues to grow. The truth is there are always going to be new ways to make money in your business, new tools to learn, and new technologies to test out.

But forgetting the basics, overlooking the holes that get wider, and neglecting the golden goose: these are all ways that we are missing out (and that includes me!).

I challenge you to find the holes in your marketing and fill them.

Not with new ways of doing things, but the solid, proven things you already know how to do but have either forgotten that you know them, or simply have been putting them off for way too long.

This week, let’s talk about those gaps and how to fill them. I’m going to show you what gaps exist in my business, how I’m finding them, and what I’m doing over the next few weeks to patch up those holes.

These will be simple tweaks, but with powerful results that combine together to regain lost revenue and solidify long term profits.

Join the Mind The Gap Free Training

Sneak Peek: 7 Ways To Mind Your Marketing Gaps

Here are 7 ways you can mind your marketing gaps (these are what I’m focusing on, too):

  • Discover where traffic on your website is going that is not actually working (i.e., 404 error traffic)
  • Determine popular pages on your website that aren’t monetized at all, or could be monetized better
  • See which videos on YouTube are getting attention, but aren’t effectively monetized
  • Examining sidebar bloat
  • Replacing out of date websites with related but current marketing funnels
  • Optimize follow up sequences in Aweber by tweaking older messages
  • Add new messages to lists where the bulk of subscribers are at the end

These are just 7 examples that I’ll be diving deeper into in the upcoming training. Join me for those and many more in Mind The Marketing Gaps!

A Private Label Rights Membership Works

One of the very best ways to bring visitors to your website consistently is to use the search engines. How? To make a long story short, content is king on the internet!

Google and other search engines love websites that have fresh and dynamic content. When you give the search engines what they’re looking for, they reward you with high placement on the search results pages.

High placement, in turn, keeps traffic coming en masse to your site each and every month! This kind of traffic is perfect, too, because these visitors are already looking for what you have!

An effective solution to building more and more search engine friendly content on your website every month is through a private label rights membership.

Private Label Rights Membership is Easy

PLR.me does the bulk of your website work for you. They create the dynamic content that you need to drive traffic to your websites. Because they offer the most professional and dynamic content, you will see huge increases in traffic with every page of PLR content you add!

The awesome thing about the content that you’ll receive via your membership is that it’s not just run of the mill content. This is content that not only will the search engines love, but also your target audience will love, too! This will turn your average web browser into a real fan, ensuring that you have plenty of repeat visitors and traffic to keep you going.

Another thing that the search engines look for, and reward, is inbound links to your website. The more you have, the better your reward! If you focus on having high quality content on your site, inbound links to your website will develop nearly automatically. You’ll find that more and more people link to your website of their own accord when you offer high quality content.

Your Private Label Rights Membership Makes You Trustworthy

Give Potential Customers A Preview With Autoresponders

July 18, 2014 in Email,Listbuilding | Comments (0)

Building customer interest and excitement is the first step to successfully marketing many products. Autoresponders play a vital role in building this interest and excitement. For instance, if you were developing an ebook, you may want to start telling your website visitors and opt-in subscribers about it. Start building interest; tell them what this product will do for them, and how soon it will be available.

Do more than build interest by telling them about it. Use an autoresponder to let them preview your product! Even though you will be selling the product, you can allow your potential customers to preview the information. Have you ever seen previews for movies that will be playing in theaters soon? It is the same concept.

Load one chapter of the ebook into an autoresponder, and put a form on your website where your visitors can enter their name and email address to receive the preview chapter free of charge. This gets their name on your list of potential customer. Each week, send a reminder email, letting them know how close the release date is, and what they can expect from your product – keep building interest and excitement.

Finally, a couple of days before you are ready to launch your product offer those that received the preview the option to buy a pre-release copy. You canopt to offer a discounted price, or leave the price as it will be on launch day – the choice is yours.

Automate Your Email Marketing with AWeber

Take a look at the list of people who signed up to receive the preview. How many of them are still ‘subscribed’ to that list? They’ve had the option to stop receiving notices about your product, but they chose to keep receiving the information you were sending. These are highly targeted prospects for your product. They have already shown you that they have an interest in your product, and a large number of those people are simply waiting on the autoresponder broadcast message that will let them know that it is time to pick up their copy of your product!

Isn’t automation a wonderful thing? Using an autoresponder, you are able to see how much of a market there is for your product, and build a great deal of interest in it before it is ever released. This is the key to making sales on launch day. Use autoresponders to build the interest. Get your prospects excited bout what is about to come – andon launch day, give them what they are waiting for and watch the sales pour in!

Article Marketing Advice for Newbies in 2014: Why You Need a Website/Blog to Make It Work

July 17, 2014 in blogging,writing | Comments (0)

Tags: , ,

I’m an avid article marketer. I have been since 2005 – using it to promote everything from affiliate products, to my own self-published ebooks and e-classes, to my freelance writing services.

It’s a very effective medium for promoting all kinds of products and services online. But, it has changed over the years.

One of the questions I get a lot from aspiring affiliate marketers is, “If I use article marketing to promote products, do I need a website/blog?” And my answer is, not necessarily, but you should. Following is why.
How Google Changed Marketing with Articles

It used to be that you could write an article, SEO it, and get it to rank on the first few pages of Google pretty easily. I know, I’ve done it dozens of times. But starting with Google’s Panda algorithm update back in 2011, it’s gotten harder and harder to do this.

You see, the specific purpose of this update was to stop sites with “poor content” from showing up in search results. The online tech mag, Search Engine Land explained the update in the following manner in the snippet, What is the Google Panda Update?

Google’s Panda Update is a filter introduced in February 2011 meant to stop sites with poor quality content from working their way into Google’s top search results. Panda is updated from time-to-time. When this happens, sites previously hit may escape, if they’ve made the right changes.

One of the things that the Panda Update considered “poor content” was duplicate content, ie, content that was distributed via article directories. This is because an article distributed via an article directory could ostensibly be found on hundreds of sites.

So even if your article was great, ie, informative, well written, in-depth and helpful to web surfers, it could still be flagged as “poor” because it got distributed via article directories.

That decreased the chances that it would rank well in search engines. Note: I still have content distributed via article directories that rank well, just not as many articles as before.

This brings me to why you should get a website/blog if you use article marketing. Namely, you need a “home” on the web to drive traffic to – no matter which method(s) you use to distribute your content.

You see, when you have a website/blog, you can build “a community” around it – a community of followers that will bookmark and come back to on their own. When you do this, you make search results returned by sites like Google irrelevant.
How to “Beat Google” Using Article Marketing

In short, you circumvent Google; you begin to make them irrelevant because you don’t rely on them to send you traffic – you build your own traffic sources.

When web surfers visit you on their own (without being sent your way by a Google or Yahoo! or Bing), you have a better chance of turning them into paying customers. Why? Because it signals that they’re becoming invested in you, your content and your products and services.

Once customers: (i) know you exist; and (ii) like (ie, become invested in you), then when they need the type of product/service you offer, you have a much better chance of them purchasing from you than some unknown vendor.

In conclusion, article marketing is still a very effective method for promoting (affiliate) products and services online. It’s one of the reasons I started my own article directory.

Good luck with your article marketing efforts.

Business Automatically Controlled With Autoresponders

July 16, 2014 in Email | Comments (0)

Automation is important to all businesses. The less time we have to spend doing small tasks, the more time we have to make more money – or we could spend that time doing something besides working. Putting an online business on auto pilot isn’t difficult at all – and it is all done with the use of autoresponders!

Autoresponders can be used to get people to your website, or to promote products and services. Simply plug your sales message into the autoresponder, along with some valuable information what your potential may want or need, and advertise that
autoresponders address.

Once the person arrives at your site, and goes through your ordering process, another autoresponder kicks in. This autoresponder should send out a receipt, as well as
information that will grant the customer access to whatever it is that they have purchased. Another autoresponder message should be sent out after this, thanking the customer for their business, and letting them know about similar or related products or services that they may be interested in.

The beauty of this is that while all of this ordering is going on, and these important customer service emails are being sent, you can be off doing something else! The more automation you can integrate into your online business, the better off you will be.
