looking for some advice

by 7 comments

Currently I started my own record label a few months ago. I been reading ebook after ebook video after video and got a good idea on how climb the google page rankings, but not really to well; or maybe im just over thinking to much and just getting frustrate...

Have a few questions about maybe how i may wanna approach this. I been doing some keyword search and tried to make my prelaunch page with the keywords i would like to try to use. SPEAKUP ENTERTAINMENT: HOST OF REAL HIP HOP MUSIC!!! , right now just left it as that, tried to use hip hop or real hip hop in and out of everything trying to hit that as one of my keywords. If someone could tell me if i did that half way decent or if i am going the wrong way.

Also another question, my layout contains flash but its mainly xml driven will that effect me in SEO.

thanks so much for your time =D

    The best thing you could do for a serious website like a record label is to get some help from a professional web designer on Elance.com for example. They can fix up your webpage pretty quickly. I also would not recommend doing flash as the top page, because search engines hate this and have a hard time indexing it. You can put flash videos on the site but a Flash site is bad for SEO.

    Once you have a site that has good SEO friendly content, you'll need to market it. Do some article marketing 9submit articles to ezinearticles.com and/or goarticles.com) and get some more backlinks using a service like 3waylinks, linkvana or Neurolinker.

      Promote your site by giving away free ringtones
      and videos. Whatever your competition is doing,
      figure out a way to do it better.

      Be sure to put things on your website that ppl are
      looking for, ringtones are a sure winner

      Hey Nadim,

      I know a great Joomla designer who is very reasonable and GREAT! He built a great site for me this year and I am very pleased with it. He is not free, but way less than many other designers. I found him on Joomlancer and am thrilled with the results. If you want his contact info, send me a PM.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    I've been a relatively successful Freelance writer on Freelancer.com over the last several years. I haven'€™t worked totally consistently during that time, but I've done pretty well and have recently been growing my business pretty aggressively and turning up the heat! I recently got connected with a start-up company that frequently uses Freelance to get tasks done for cheap, and I had a great conversation with the founder of that company which serves as the inspiration for this article. Employers have to work hard to ensure that they'€™re getting the right person when they hire a Freelancer. Once a project is accepted and a milestone is created, it can be a major hassle to resolve any disputes, especially those surrounding the quality of the work. I don't have a lot of insight into this process but I have learned a thing or two about choosing the right employers. A lot of folks have it in their head that the customer is always right, but as a Freelancer, you have the ability to choose who is and isn'€™t going to be your customer. Here are some guidelines for finding great employers that fit with your business.
