Effective Strategies to Improve Search Engine Optimization

Effective strategies for start-ups on how to Improve Search Engine Optimization There was a time when just having a number of directories or having a mediocre BlogSpot blogs with a few entries would feel like hitting the jack pot with Google ranking. But those days are long gone and it’s full speed ahead! Google algorithms change so often and only deliver the most relevant content as possible so it’s safe to say, staying on top of Google is not easy. However, the benefits for the searcher are beneficial so it’s important to keep that in mind. Having an effective link building strategy for example, is simple but very important not to miss and take lightly. The objective is to get on high authority websites and to also link back to your website or your personal blog. This is where the magic happens. Some examples of how to do this and implement an effective process of lead generation and strategy would be to target your influencers’ blog sites. Your approach is critical but here’s a visual put it in proper perspective before diving in. Use Your Influence Decide you are a just as much an influencer and thought leader in your area of interest as the next expert. Your influence affords leverage to offer and ask for backlink; which then in turns offers you to guest blog as a contributor on other high authority sites. Share Your Pain Pill This strategy is worth its weight in gold. People will reach for a pain pill quicker than a vitamin. Being authentic and transparent is essential to your shelf life. You want people to...

The SIDE EFFECTS of small businesses that failed

You ever notice during commercials for drug related products that promote their product can solve your issue like help you sleep better or stop the pain like quit smoking and everything is over glorified and minor details are left out… and then comes the side effects. Notice how the commercial speeds up and the person in the commercial talks fast and breezes over the risks and potential harm. For instance, the casual mention of insomnia, anxiety, blood clots, heart disease or heart failure. I’m sorry… did you say heart failure? Unlike in commercials or in movie trailers, where the side effects are skimmed over and do not show the whole picture, as humans we’re wired to ask about more questions and get more information before making decisions or taking action. Like buying a car for example, we kick the tires and ask about the warranty. With business, we naturally do the same. We generally do business with people we know, like and trust. And can relate to. If the person who is trying to sell something, is not focused on our needs, then that person just missed out on a commission. Lessons Learned in Business In business, I learned successful people operate differently than the way most other people operate. It’s all about risk versus reward; and that’s what successful people in business take into consideration. Most people will walk away from business, because they can’t see the reward on the front end. It’s natural to have those instincts, of course, because we all have“fight or flight reflexes” and intuition. The difference is, most are conditioned because of past failures or mistakes...

Leverage and Repurposing your Content

Leverage and Repurposing your Content Do not commit the common mistake of not utilizing your blog entries to their maximum potential. More often than not, bloggers would usually write entries and let them go unnoticed and then forget about them. If you have written something which you know is worthwhile, do not let it go to waste. Start digging through your blog entries and make them worthy of reading again as you find through seven simple ways on how to leverage and repurpose your content: 1. Post your blog entry or your link to your blog entry in popular social media sites – hello Twitter and Facebook! This is probably the easiest way to leverage your content. 2. Why not post your blog entry as a response or guest post to the blog sites of your friends? Do not worry about relevance as for sure the problems of yesterday are still the problems of today. Go ahead and use your previous posts to respond to the current issues on hand. 3. Link you old blog entries to your new posts. If you know that your previous blog entry is relevant to your new one, then by all means, include the link of your old one to the new entry, which you are writing. It will actually make you sound more credible. And besides, sometimes it is actually interesting for readers to know how a person was before, how he has changed and how he is today. 4. Submit your articles in article directories. As long as it is you who have written the article, it would not be a problem at all. 5. Be creative and transform...

Ways to Develop A Fixed Mind Set

There are ways to reprogram your mental computer. Most of the time, you go through life going through the motions and not seizing opportunities that come our way or take charge of our life. What ends up happening is we give life the steering wheel to take control of you. It’s like going through life on “cruise control” with the attitude, whatever happens, happens. That type of fixed mindset can be the cause of ruin if not redirected and repurposed. It’s time out for the laissez-faire mentality. Most people have become conditioned and label their problems that they can’t fix or figure out as failures; but that’s a label. When you reframe that and identify yourself as problem-solver, you won’t think you’re failing. Rather, your new fixed mindset will determine what doesn’t work, and try something else. Sometimes you have to choose to have a positive attitude. What you program into your mind, is how it will function. You can have the most powerful computer in the world, but if you program it with the wrong software, it will never perform how the manufacture designed it. “Benjamin Barber, an eminent sociologist, said, ‘I don’t divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures… I divide the world into learners and nonlearners. What exactly defines someone as a non-learner? We’re all innately born with a strong sense of drive and unbridled ambition. Children are the best reminders of this because they don’t know limits. Their skills and imagination are stretched on the daily. They don’t dwell or even decide whether something is too hard...

How to Break Free From Analysis Paralysis

There are some business owners who operate like machines. They produce products, programs and materials that seem effortless. There are many of us who are passionate about wanting to start a business or start freelancing. The problem is not to get caught up with analysis paralysis. This happens when we spend more time trying to figure everything out that you actually end up not doing anything. I was paralyzed for a few years and didn’t realize it. I really thought I was in motion because I would buy information product and attend every training and webinar and buy every new shiny object there was. I believed I was being productive because I was passionate about what I wanted to do but really my passion was collecting dust on the shelf because I was not diving in and taking action. A mediocre idea is fine to choose, because the fact is no one can do it the way YOU would do. Move past that way of thinking and implement what will give you immediate results to determining what you want to do and would enjoy doing and getting paid for it. Determine what your goals are? Is this something you want to do on the side? It may be counter intuitive for those who may be doing what you’re already doing. If there is NO competition, that is NOT necessarily a good sign. That’s a good indicator there is no market for it. So don’t psyche yourself in thinking “I’ll be the first to do this” This is great thinking, but you have to be realistic. Know if there is a demand for what you would like to do....

Practice problem solving questions and critical thinking

Practice problem solving questions and critical thinking Build for the future, clear past thoughts and develop thoughts of success. In order to build for the future, sometimes you have to evaluate your thought processes: (past situations that are unresolved, what areas need adjusting and changes, fear, disappointment). Understand some things that I didn’t understand. Past thoughts of time when it didn’t work; learn to reframe those failures and think like a PROBLEM SOLVER! Start to look for things that resemble something from the past, so we can say “OK this isn’t working.” Then something is happening and it’s possible, and I’m here. You have a decision, I don’t care what it looks like, but say to yourself that you are here and this is happening and you’re going to be a part of it! Scary or not! Shut the TV off and the outside chatter that only distract you or try to deter you from your goals. Don’t give the dream killers and dream stealer’s any of your valuable time. You can tell when the conversation starts, what it’s going to look like. Shut it down! Becoming a evidence-based critical thinker It simply is not possible to solve a problem if you’ve lost hope on it. Finding an effective solution to a business problem requires first to have a belief that there is a solution and firmly believe it can be solved. Faith is just as important and keeps the mind focused around solutions and not dwelling on the problem. When I learned that was something I needed to do; I had to become decisive and analyze all possible solutions. Shut...
