Okay now as I’ve said many times before knowledge is power and put very simply if you don’t know who’s visiting your site and from where it’s very difficult to benchmark and decide on a clear marketing strategy that will return good results, so listen up to this guide to Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is a free tool that’s one of the best for analyzing traffic – that is, if you know how to use it right.
The trouble with Google Analytics is that it gives you too much information. It can give you something like 85 different reports covering every aspect of your site. Do you really need all of that? I’d say you probably don’t.
Instead, you should focus on a few key areas:
This analytic tells you where your site visitors are coming from. You can find out what percentage are coming from organic search or referring sites. It also tells you how many people clicked through from which specific site. Read More→
You could have the greatest product on earth but still not sell anything if you’re trying to sell it to the wrong market. Knowing your customers is everything, and that goes for any business online or off.
What You Need to Know
What do you need to know about your customers exactly? Of course, you need to know what kinds of products or services they want, especially things that they can’t find currently.
You also need to take into account the kinds of products and services they’ll want in the future. This is essential for building a long-term relationship with them where they’ll come back and buy from you again and again.
What’s really important is to understand how your customers see themselves. Self-image determines the kinds of products you buy and also shopping habits. You’ve got to know if they see themselves as young and hip or mature and conservative, for example.
All of this determines how they like to interact with businesses. If you know that, you’ll know exactly how to reach them on their terms.

Everybody says that when you’re choosing your niche, you should go with your passion. That sounds great, but what if your passion is totally unprofitable?
Step one is to identify your passion. Step two is to decide whether or not there’s demand for it. If there isn’t, drop it and move on to your next passion. If there is, you’re ready to get started.
Here’s Sam’s & my take on this: we’ve managed to create an ebook on property investing which is our passion and we hope over time it will sell ok, take a look The Diaries of a Serial Property Investor

Do you want to boost your productivity? Do you find yourself not being as productive as you want to be? Well, most of what you’ve heard about productivity – all the ‘common sense’ – is utterly false. Here are 3 of the biggest myths floating around about getting more done.
Myth – Longer Hours Means Better Productivity
What do you do when you really need to get some work cranked out? You make a strong pot of coffee and burn the midnight oil. And you end up burning yourself out in the process.
Studies have shown over and over again that longer hours kill productivity. Any hours that you work over 40 a week are pretty much wasted. Staying up late after your usual working time doesn’t get the job done.
The reason is that there are only so many hours you can maintain focus. When your focus goes, it takes you much longer to get the same amount of work done. You slow down, get distracted more and make mistakes. Read More→
Hello now the above question is a pretty frequent one that appears on many internet marketing forums, not necessarily with those exact words but that’s the general drift
So today I want to try and answer that with a couple of tips that I hope will make sense and get you started in the right direction.
When launching a marketing campaign for your website, traffic is the name of the game. Traffic is the lifeblood of your website. The success or failure of your online business depends upon how much traffic your website receives. And there is no question that one of the best (if not the best for most of us) sources of free traffic for your website is the search engines.
Search Engine Traffic is Vital
Here’s just a reminder, basic information I know but many loose sight of, people rely on the search engines for information. People have problems and are seeking answers and solutions. So they turn to the search engines for answers. So if you want your website to show up on the top of the first page of the search results for a particular search term, then you need to develop your website in such a way that when the search engines crawl your site, they will rank it well for the right keywords.
Here’s a reality check Read More→
Lets be honest here so many website owners understand the need to get visitors to their sites, but they are their own worst enemies and quite often go about it totally in the wrong way. By making the wrong choices at the beginning or not making the right changes, they struggle to rank well in the search engines. The crucial first step to success is finding keywords you can rank well for. Now I know for many of you this sounds really obvious but you’d be amazed how many over look this plain fact all the time.
Ok Here’s Stating The Obvious I Know
The difference between getting ranked on the first page of the major search engines and not being there, even being on the second page, is huge. Even though it is great coming close to the first page for a competitive keyword, it still doesn’t unleash the potential of your site.
Over 95% of all search engine hits happen on webpages on the first page of search results. The higher up you are on the first page, the more hits you get with almost 75% of all clicks going to the websites in the first three positions.
Only The Top Counts
I am sure this makes it clear that you need to be at the top to see the results. This is where it becomes crucial to choose the right keyword that you can rank well for. You will find lots written about targeting long-tail keywords on search engine optimization websites. Long-tail keywords do get less hits than the shorter versions of the words, but in fact bring in much more targeted visitors.
Here’s How: Read More→
Welcome back and as I said in my last post keywords are probably the most vital ingredient to getting good traffic flow but as importantly targeted traffic because bottom line that’s what you want & need.
Many people including us have quite a bit of difficulty in trying get their websites to rank well in the major search engines. It is definitely not something you can just do with your eyes closed, but as with many things having a foundation and starting your journey to the top of the rankings in the right way is very important.
Research is the absolute key
Many people want to rank for specific keywords, but have no idea what they are up against. It might be with some luck that they were able to find a keyword and rank easily for it, but in most instances that would not be the case. It is therefore crucial that you do some proper research at the start to identify the keywords you will be able to rank for. Read More→
