Fresh Material Source – Do A Content Interview

A content interview is an excellent way for you to add new material to your blog or website.

Do you have a problem sometimes trying to come up with ideas for material? Websites need fresh content added regularly, that’s a must. Coming up with ideas on what to write about can often be a problem. Very often in this situation, you look around to see what kind of material is being published on other similar sites. Then you find something that appeals to you and you decide “this looks OK, I’ll write about that too!”.

That’s all very well, you write your own unique article about the subject and publish it. Great, that’s taken care of that! Now you can carry on doing any other work.

Increase Website Traffic – Part One

earnextramoney-increasewebsitetrafficIf you build it, it does not mean that they will come!

For everybody who has a website, the goal is to get visitors coming into that website. Those visitors are known as traffic. This is the first of a series of posts all about fundamentals of how to increase website traffic. Methods and tactics that can be used to get that traffic started, and once started, how to increase traffic to your website as time goes on.

Today we will be looking at the foundation of the website. When you built your website, you either took your time and poured your heart and soul into it, or else threw it up in a hurry. Of course its also possible that you purchased the website from somebody else, or hired an outside body to build it for you based on your instructions.

Whichever way it happened, you are left with a website that you think is ready, just like a new store about to open its doors for the first time. At this point many website owners are already thinking of how to increase website traffic, but have you examined the website properly? There are a number of things that you must check, so lets get started.

The overall appearance: Your website might look beautiful in your eyes, but how about from the eyes of other people? Have you asked any? You should. Always try to get some extra opinions from other people. They will tell you what they think of the style, the use of colours, the placement of objects, the overall appearance. Maybe that purple colour that you love so much is considered an eyesore to others. Be careful though, try not to ask just everyone, it is better if you can get opinions from other professionals in the internet world, as they will have more valid observations based on personal experience. A nice appearance always helps to increase website traffic.

The purpose of your website: From the point of view of a visitor to your site, is it clear what your website is trying to achieve? Is it consistent? For example, a visitor to this website might see an article about YouTube videos, and next an article about a plug-in called Akismet. Its very possible that the visitor could get confused and wonder what the website is all about. So we must ensure that the purpose of the website is made clear from several locations, such as the title of the website, the content of the homepage, the content of the About page, and any other relevant places. All these need to be consistent, so that the visitor has a clear idea of what is going on. If you have not checked all this already, the time to do it is now.

Navigation: Your visitors must have an easy way of looking around your website, without getting lost. A clear menu or navigation system must be in place, and must be easy to reach. Some websites are designed in a very clumsy manner where sometimes its not easy to find the way back to the homepage. This will drive away your visitors very fast. Remember that our goal is always to increase website traffic, not drive them away. Also ensure that there are no broken links in your website, i.e. if you have links that lead away to other different websites, makes sure that all these links are checked, and checked regularly. This is something that both visitors and Google hate.

Loading time: If your website is slow to load, that can be another cause of driving away your visitors. If this is the case, try to pinpoint the reason, and rectify it. Sometimes this can be caused by faulty plug-ins, sometimes by having too many images that are far too large, and various other reasons. If you cannot isolate the reason yourself, look for some help from a web designer or other professional. Most people just will not wait around for a slow site any more.

Multiple browsers: Make sure that you view your website from as many of the different internet browsers as possible. Each browser handles the display of web-pages slightly differently, and your website might look great in one browser, but completely garbled in another. Do your best to check against all the main browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, and any others that you can. Just because you yourself are in love with Opera does not mean that everyone else is, so you can often increase website traffic very efficiently with this single step.

Every one of the points mentioned above are tasks that must be checked before your website goes live to the public.

WordPress And Google And Sliced Bread

earnextramoney-wordpressandgoogleWordPress is the greatest thing since sliced bread! There, I have said it. I completely love this totally free platform for publishing on the internet. WordPress and Google combined are the next greatest thing since that, like maybe the toaster.

The technical term for WordPress is a CMS, or Content Management System. What does this mean in layman’s terms? Well, it is a system that allows you to manage your own content on the internet. Content can be anything such as text, videos, images, most sorts of multimedia objects are allowed. WordPress allows you to display everything just the way you like it, and if you change your mind and decide that you need to modify something, its no problem to go back and make adjustments.

And the greatest thing about WordPress is that Google just loves it. With WordPress sites, it always seem to be easier to climb the ranks in the search views, thus get noticed and attract visitors to your website.

An Internet Business From Product Creation

I would love to know the statistics about how many people would like to have an internet business of their own. I do not actually know the figures, but if there was a poll or a survey, and one of the questions was “Would you like to have your own internet business”, then I imagine that percentage would be pretty high.

The fact is, most people do not own or run any business, instead most people in the world are employees of somebody else. My daddy always used to tell me “you will never make money working for somebody else”. That sums it up fairly well. This is what the Wiki has to say on the subject of an internet business.

One of the easiest ways of making money from the internet is to sell something. It might be something of your own, or it might belong to somebody else where you get a commission for any sales. The things that are sold are usually called “products”. The types of products that sell very well are information products.

If you are wondering what an information product is, let me explain briefly. An information product or info-product is usually a book or a video that teaches how to do something. It can be any topic, such as ‘how to catch the best trout’, ’50 ways how to cook an egg’, or even like this one ‘how to start an internet business from product creation’, any topic at all, you get the idea.

Usually the books are converted to some digital format (example such as PDF or ‘acrobat’ format), and are called ebooks. Then the ebooks, videos, and even sound recordings are made available online from a website. If people come looking for these items, they can purchase online and get the items instantly.

Now here is a real-life scenario, from not too long ago. It was a general conversation in my local bar actually, and we happened to be chatting about internet stuff. My friend says something like “Well Brian, I am a bricklayer, I know nothing about the internet, so this does not apply to me”.

I thought about that for a little, and decided it might be fun to try to convert him. Breaking down what he said, the response goes something like this:

  1. Bricklayers have skills that can be sold in the do-it-yourself market, maybe how to build a straight wall or how to construct a backyard barbecue.
  2. When somebody says they know nothing about the internet, it’s just not true. You know all you need to know. I know nothing about cars, but yet I know how to operate and drive one. Also I know when to call a mechanic for help. In the world of computers and internet, there are lots of ‘mechanics’ available, and are easy to find, even in the telephone directory.
  3. Yes this ‘can’ apply to you, but only if you want it to. There is always a demand for this information, it would be easy enough to make video recordings showing how, then written instructions added, and it could then be sold.

My response went something like that, probably not in those exact words, and my friend had one of those “Ahhh I see!” moments.

That example is included because that can apply to anybody. We all have certain skills and those skills can nearly always be parcelled into an info-product.

Selling info-products online is a great way to start an internet business and make money. If they are your own products, even better. Experts say that you really should consider this route (your own products) if you want to earn some decent money.

Try to make full use of multimedia in your products. If you have an ebook, then try to also create a video and an audio version. This gives your potential customers more choice, as each person has their own favourite. For example people who drive for a living would be very likely to appreciate the audio version.

Product creation is easy. All you are doing is putting your thoughts on paper, so to speak. Problems such as “but I can’t write” can be easily overcome. Speak it and record yourself, then get it transcribed by somebody else. If you are making a sound recording and are unhappy with your own voice, hire somebody else. You can easily move past these problems, just use some thought.

When your customers are at the point of sale, why not allow them the choice of any single media, and offer a higher price for all versions.

The real beauty of product creation is that you can turn your own idea into several new ideas. Maybe you start out with a single concept, you can continue to develop that concept into other product ideas. Maybe come up with a series of similar ideas. Customers always like the idea of a series because they can keep returning to your website when they need more information.

If you do not have the time to develop extra products yourself, but you have the idea, there are thousands of companies out there that will do your product creation for you. Allow them free reign on your idea and they are bound to help generate lots more income for you. Getting outside help when necessary is a great way to enhance an internet business.

P.S. My bricklayer friend never went ahead. He did not ‘take action’. Do not let this happen to you.
