Your New Business

Honest Housewife here!

I have come across a business platform that is just killing it out there. It has everything you need to build an online business including several income streams that you can earn for free. You mainly work it from your cell phone. I don’t know about you but I am on my smartphone almost constantly! 🙂

Have you heard of Easy Cash Code? I have seen it in several Facebook Groups and on Twitter but I never really took the time to check into it. I did yesterday and I am so glad I did. My sponsor is making a full time income and did it in just five months! The nice thing is that she is paid directly to her PayPal account multiple times a day.  You don’t have to wait to get paid!

There is intensive training and there are no questions left unanswered. There are Facebook Groups you can join to help you through the process and support is amazing! The think I like the best is the text messaging marketing. I am so excited to start this part of it!

If you are a part of Easy Cash Code already, let me know how it is going. Did you find it hard to start? Are you having any issues? How are you promoting it?

Let’s do this together! Comment below and let us know how it’s making a difference in your life!

Thanks!

P.S. If you join Easy Cash Code through one of links above, yes I will earn a commission but there is no extra cost to you for me to earn that. 🙂

I Can’t Believe It!

Honest Housewife here!

I belong to quite a few Facebook groups about online marketing, internet marketing, etc. I was just on my news feed this morning and great day! There are STILL so many people advertising clearly scam programs. I saw a few about “Send a Text and make $200 today!” and “If you can mail out 100 postcards, you can rich too!” COME ON PEOPLE!

It is really irritating that there are so many people out there trying to take advantage of “newbies” that are just trying to make it online. Sure, there are folks that want to make the quick buck without doing any work, and in my opinion if you’re going to be that lazy then by all means, throw your money away on one of these scams. But if you really want to try and succeed in something you are passionate about, whether it be Facebook, Twitter, blogging, writing, etc. then there is work involved. There is no easy way.

Of the programs that I have been a part of or purchased, nothing has made me rich overnight. What usually happens is there are a few golden nuggets of information in them and I just use those to continue to do what I already do. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s all about learning your niche, ways to drive traffic, and then providing people with information and help that they can really use.

People will listen to you if you know what you’re talking about and can provide them information that will help them succeed. It just gets frustrating when my feed is full of crap that it makes me think the real opportunities are getting lost, and that’s a bad thing.

This is just be complaining. 🙂 I want to make sure that if you are new to the business to please, please, please watch out for things that sound too good to be true, because they definitely are!

Put your nose to the grindstone, find something you are passionate about and like to talk about and talk about it to people who have the same interest. Please don’t take the easy way out. If it was easy, everybody would be doing it. 🙂

Have a great day!

Targeted Traffic Is Good Traffic And Profitable Traffic

Honest Housewife here!

If you want good traffic to your website then you really need to target your audience. There is no point having hundreds of visitors to your website every day if they are visitors that have no interest in your site or product at all. Having 10 targeted visitors it better than 100 non-targeted visitors. Non-targeted visitors are not going to buy the products you are promoting. There is a big difference between getting traffic to your site and getting buying traffic to your site.

To get targeted traffic to your website you need an understanding of the demographics and the market that you want to reach. This will take some time and research but it is worth it. You are in the business to make money and taking the time to do your research now will actually save you time in the long term.

When you advertise, always place your advertising on other websites that are specific to the audience you are targeting. Be really selective with the placements of your ads so that you are paying for advertising that is only being shown to people that are interested in your niche. Although being selective with your ad placement will most likely reduce the traffic coming to your site, you will find that your sales will increase.

Be very careful with how you word your advertising. Simple changes to the words or phrases in your ad can make a big difference to the type of traffic you get. Use content that will target those who are interested in your product but will be of no interest to those people who are ‘non-buyers’. Give details of the product so that you are telling your customers exactly what you are offering.

You want to place your advertisements on sites that are content based and have content that is relevant to your niche. People viewing the site are people that will be interested in your product so will click on your ad when they see it. Remember to be specific with the ad content details.

When you are advertising try using different forms of the keywords and phrases and different people will search for the same information by using different words. By targeting an expanded range of keywords and phrases you are gaining rankings for multiple terms which will increase your traffic.

When created your ad try to think like your customer. Ask yourself what would make you click on that ad and then buy your product. When you start thinking like a customer’s you really increase your targeted audience and your sales. If it means that you need to change your advertising approach completely then do it, you need to do whatever it takes to increase your sales.

Don’t use the same old advertising techniques that people have always used. Don’t get stuck in a rut with your advertising. Try something different and tweak your ads until you are getting the results you are looking for.

Let me know your results!

Thanks!

Solo Ads

Hey there!
I wanted to speak to you about another way to get traffic and possibly sign ups and sales to your program. It’s by using solo ads.

Now there are solo ad companies out there that claim they are sending to millions of “active users”. Please don’t fall for this junk. Of anyone has that many users on their list, they don’t need to be selling solos so they can send to them. It would be much more likely that they were sending their own emails to them so they could make money.
Anyway, along my research for Honest Housewife I came across UDIMI. It’s is a solo ad company  but the solos are done personally by different vendors. It isn’t one company sending a million emails.
I have had great success with UDIMI. On two solos that I sent, cost about $80 total, I received over 75 sign ups and 14 sales to my program. They paid for themselves and also put me in profit.
Now of course I can’t and they can’t guarantee anything for your program or your outcome, but it might be worth a try if you are having some trouble getting active people to your program.

Click Here!

Click the link and check out the different vendors. Make sure you look for ones with good reviews and a lot of solos sent. This way you will ensure you are getting someone who knows what they are talking about. If you would like the ones that I personally use, please email me and I will be happy to give you their information.

Have a great day!

Easy Link Building Strategies For Increasing SE Ranking

Honest Housewife here!

To have a good ranking in the search engines you need to build lots of backlinks to your website. Let’s take a look at some of the ways that you can build links.

1. If you have links already existing on other websites you may want to contact them and ask if they could change the link slightly. A link with an anchor text containing relevant keywords is much better than a link that just says ‘click here’.

2. Always monitor your sites 404 statistics and keep track of any links that are old or even misspelled and going to the wrong URL. A backlink is no good if it isn’t pointing to the write link.

3. On your website have a “link to us” link. Include the information you would like used for your link such as anchor text and URL. You can even offer to do a link exchange and have a contact box so website owners can leave their details.

4. Check for any errors using a spell and grammar checker. Users will notice any errors that you have in your links, content and pages.

5. Always keep an eye out for other sites that mention your website or even use some of your website content. If they include a link back to your site that is fine but if they don’t then contact them and ask them to include a link to your site.

6. Post comments on other blogs that relate to your niche and put your link either in the box provided or within your comment. Always post good comments that are relevant to the blog post.

7. Always use tags, particularly header tags, on your website that include your relevant keywords. Anchor text and image text also increases search engine rankings.

8. Use a sitemap on your website that links all the pages to the sitemap page. If your site is created using WordPress there are plugins that can create a sitemap for you. This makes it easier for the search engines to spider your website.

9. Link your site to other websites that have content that is relevant to your site. Always link to the important pages within the site.

10. Link to websites that have high search engine rankings as these can help drive traffic back to your site.

11. Study your competitors and see what sites they are using to get backlinks and add your website links to the same sites.

12. If you have good feedback from your clients then add those comments to your site. This will add trust and interest of future clients.

13. Create an ebook about your niche and offer it as a free gift for people to sign up to your newsletter or mailing list.

14. If you consider yourself an expert in your field then teach on online seminar about your topic. Post announcements of the seminar on your website and other sites around the internet.

15. Use Google Adwords to help build up your customer base.

16. Find an affiliate product that relates to your niche and add links to it to your website.

17. Choose a charity and add a ‘donate to charity’ link to your site. Have a description of the charity and how you will donate the proceeds that you receive.

18. Submit your website URL to social media sites that have quality products and services offered on their sites.

Use of the above strategies will increase your traffic and also increase your profits. A successful, profitable website takes work but if you are willing to put in that effort then your website will soon be one of the best.

Have a great day!

Content Site Linking Strategies For High SE Ranking

Hey! Honest Housewife here.

To help your site to rank well in the search engines you will need to do some linking which works really well if you know what you are doing. However, if you don’t know how to create links properly then you could just create a big mess

When you create links you want to do so in moderation. Some people will buy linking services that will create thousands of links very fast, but this is not always the best approach. As with many things in life, taking it slow is often the best choice.

To have a successful website you want to focus on quality content rather than quantity. So if your website is chock-a-block full of bad quality content and links that aren’t producing then feel free to remove all that wasted space and focus completely on good content.

When you have your website complete with good quality content across several pages then you can add links to the different pages. Each page should be focusing on a keyword phrase and you should try to rank each individual page for its main keyword phrase. When you link from one page on your site to another you are encouraging your visitors to browse through numerous pages on your website rather than look at the main page and leave.

Deep linking is all about using the right link to a specific page on the website. You need to use relevant pages of content to link to your other pages and these links can come from within your own site or from other sites. Have your inner pages on your site linking to your main home page.

If you advertise for link exchanges, tell other website owners that you are limiting the number of links you take so you can keep open some spots for future sources, this will entice other website owners to want to exchange links with you before you reach your limit.

Because you are limiting the number of links this is also enticing to website owners as it is more beneficial for them to be among a limited number of links coming from a site. Because there are less links there is less competition among links on your website and this is a big benefit for website owners. It also lets website owners know that you are a responsible and professional link building and one that would be good to do business with.

This method will also increase your link popularity and you will soon be receiving more traffic to the numerous pages on your website. You will have more leverage when asking other website owners to exchange links and when you have high amounts of traffic and link popularity you may even be able to start charging website owners to place links on your site.

By increasing the value of your links this means that those who exchange links with you are also good, high quality websites which is always good for your own business.

By including links to other sites on your site you are sending traffic to those sites. Not everyone likes to do this but the fact is that although you are sending some traffic to other sites you are receiving so much more traffic that it doesn’t really matter. You are building strong links to and from your site and this is going to help your ranking within the search engines and that is always a good thing.

Have a great day!

Scam Watch

Okay. I am soooo tired of seeing Email Processing System postings, get paid to do nothing, etc. I also am tired of seeing people with a bunch of cash laid out all over their computer, their floor, their bed, their lap, etc. People please do not fall for this. Anyone can go to the bank, cash their paycheck, spread it out and take a picture.

Seriously it really angers me when I see how many scams there are out there. Paid Social Network Jobs is another one I have started to block from my news feed. Do you really think that a company is going to pay you $125 to answer a one question survey? If it was that easy, EVERYBODY would be doing it! It just makes me so mad that there are so many people taking advantage of others that just aren’t as internet savvy as others or people who are really in desperate need of money.

I look on my Facebook Groups every day, sometimes several times a day, and most of what I see are these people saying give me $1 and you will make $1 million. Come on!  And also there are so many people falling for it. That is what is so crazy to me.

My dad is a retired FBI agent and he taught all of us (I have three brothers) that there are people out there that will want to take advantage of you and people that just aren’t trustworthy. I have followed this advice my entire life and it makes me sad to see people being taken advantage of.

There are no links in this post as I just wanted to warn you to BE CAREFUL! Always Google whatever program you are thinking of joining to find out if there are any reviews, comments, sites, etc. that are telling you the ins and outs of it. Of course there will be sites that will give a favorable review because they are trying to earn a commission. There is nothing wrong with affiliate marketing, hell I do it myself, but there is something wrong when someone hasn’t even used the program and is trying to get you to purchase a complete waste of time.

In conclusion, please, please do your research, don’t believe everything you see or read on the internet and always know if it’s too good to be true, IT IS! 🙂

Thanks,

SS
