Keywords revisited - from the customer's perspective

Posted 23rd March 2010 at 02:34 PM by webwriter (Newbie's IM journey)

I read that many marketers including myself, miss the boat on keywords. This happens because we keep our marketers' hats on instead of putting ourselves in our customers' shoes.

Think of the last time that you wanted to find some information by typing a question or phase in Google.You didn't type a broad term such as "lose weight." You wanted something more specific, so you typed a phrase or question regarding a SPECIFIC issue, such as how to lose belly fat.

a glitch to fix

Posted 19th March 2010 at 10:59 AM by webwriter (Newbie's IM journey)

Bluehost.com, the webhost I signed up with not that long ago, recently instituted a mandate stating that all users had to change their passwords to avoid security issues.

And I complied. The new password worked fine on the day that I got it, but not on the second day. I know that I typed the word accurately and that my computer's connection to the Internet was working.

I called Bluehost three times yesterday. The last customer rep stated that he would send a temporary...

Taking a More Direct Route to IM Success

Posted 17th March 2010 at 02:53 PM by webwriter (Newbie's IM journey)

Then I'm going to recycle some of my Squidoo lens articles and submit those articles to directories like GoArticles and ezinearticles.com. My resource box will include a link to that sales page.

If that project gets a few sales,...

Un-Success Secret

Posted 17th March 2010 at 11:19 AM by webwriter (Newbie's IM journey)

No wonder why many (notice, I didn't say or imply all) newbies aren't successful, even after spending months and years in IM marketing.

Here's the reason why, aka secret: They are unknown and untried. They can blog all they like. They can create products from whatever means now until hell freezes over and they can keep spending money until it snows in July, and still not earn a single time for all of the effort they made.

This is really a shame. Those newbies may have...

What I didn't know about Squidoo

Posted 15th March 2010 at 08:15 PM by webwriter (Newbie's IM journey)

I like Squidoo. Right from the get-go, I assumed that I'd be able to create one lens after the other in a matter of hours. What a mistake that was.

By the time (stormy) Saturday was over, I created four lenses, each one about some aspect of my niche. Creating those lenses was fun and hardly seemed like work at all.

But the only thing about creating them is that careful attention and constant revision must be given to each lens in order for it to be a quality lens ---...
