7 Unstoppable Steps How to Get Leads With a Blog

7 Unstoppable Steps How to Get Leads With a Blog” written by Mike Marko.

Are you struggling to get leads for your personal business?

I get it.  I was there.  Over a year ago Bren and I were completely stuck… no traffic to our offer, no good leads, and almost no sales.

We were losing money.

Then I found the way on how to get leads and start to building our business using the internet… and generating consistent traffic.  And that is by using a powerful blogging system.

7 Steps On How To Get Leads with Your Blog

I am going to show you the 7 steps to creating a blog post that will help you get the traffic you need to get sales.  These are the same steps I use to rank the majority of our blog posts.  First thing’s first… let’s find something to write about.

How to Get Keywords for Your WordPress Blog Post

The first step to building a WordPress blog post that will make money online, is to determine what you are going to write about… specifically what is the keyword phrase you want to write around.  We talked about keyword phrases in the blog post, SEO Basics Tutorial for Beginners – Learn the Basics of SEO.

The following video talks about how you can find keywords that will help you get found on Google or other search engines.

[jwplayer player=”1″ mediaid=”6644″]

 As you can see in this video, it is pretty quick to come up with keywords to write around.  I recommend coming up with one primary keyword phrase which you write around, and 1-3 secondary keyword phrases that you mention 1-3 times each within the blog post.

How to Create WordPress Blog Post Quickly and Easily

Most of the time, Bren and I start writing our blog posts on a Microsoft Word document.  We’ll write it, and sometime email it back and forth, before dropped the blog post into our WordPress blogging platform.

[jwplayer player=”2″ mediaid=”6355″]

As you can see in the video, it is pretty easy to create a blog post when you first start with a Microsoft Word document.

How to Hyperlink an Image in a WordPress Blog Post

People love to click images.

It’s true.

That’s why almost all (I may have forgotten a few) our images are clickable, where if you click them they take you to a different page.  Some will take you to an offer, some to our free Bootcamp registration page, and others to our contact page.

It is pretty quick to make your images clickable, though many bloggers fail to take advantage of this basic human instinct.  Watch the following video and make your images work for you.

[jwplayer player=”2″ mediaid=”6357″]

As you can see, it’s pretty easy to make your images clickable and send your visitor to another page.  Think through your end goal, and determine exactly where and why you want your visitor to go after clicking the image.

How to SEO Optimize Your WordPress Blog Post

This is probably the most important video in this series.  If you want to know how to get leads with your blog, then you MUST watch this video.  This is where I talk about how to make your blog post into a work horse for your website.

[jwplayer player=”2″ mediaid=”6359″]

SEO’ing your blog is pretty easy.  You just follow the basic steps and you’ll be well underway.

How to Insert a Video Into a WordPress Blog Post

Video is king in your blog.  Bren recently wrote about the triangle of trust where you build confidence by sending your leads to your blog instead directly to your sales page.  The video is there to help build trust, and help your readers get to know you better.

[jwplayer player=”2″ mediaid=”6360″]

Don’t dismiss the power of video for your blog post.  Not only does it help convert your traffic into leads and sales, but it also keeps your visitors on your page longer which reduces bounce rate.  This will help improve the value your blog post has in the “eyes of Google”.

How to Schedule a WordPress Blog Post

You have probably heard Bren and I talk about the important of blogging daily.  I can’t stress that enough.  It both improves your value for Google, but also it gives you a consistent stream of content that your regular visitors will appreciate.

But I also understand it is very difficult to find time every day to blog… especially during vacations, etc.  That’s why it is extremely important to create blog posts in batches and then schedule out when they are published.

Watch the video and learn how to schedule your blog post.

[jwplayer player=”2″ mediaid=”6362″]

Now you are all set… you know the basics of how to get leads with your blog.  It’s pretty easy.

But Wait… I Missed The Last Step

Bren and I rank a lot of our content high in Google, but there is one piece of the puzzle I haven’t mentioned it.  I shared six videos showing you the fundamentals.  But this may not have been as effective without using the blogging platform we use.

We have over 50 blog sites as part of our blog network.  And from our experience, the Influx Entrepreneur blogging platform is the superior blogging system in a lot of ways.  It has a lot of advantages such as

  • It is inexpensive
  • You didn’t have to worry about maintaining the site, and so less headaches,
  • It has a membership site so you could sell your own products and make money directly from PayPal,
  • It has capture pages so you can generate more leads,
  • It came with free themes already integrated into the platform,
  • It came with webinar software so you can promote & sell to groups of people at a time,
  • It ranks in Google a lot easier than hosting your own site,
  • It is self-hosted so you don’t have to be technically inclined,
  • It has its own social media site integrated into the platform.

And there is a lot more advantages…

Normally a platform alone like this would cost $500 or more per month!  Luckily, that isn’t the case here.  To learn more about it click the button below.

How to Blog for Money | How to Blog

“How to Blog for Money | How to Blog” written by Mike Marko.

Are you looking to make money online?

Maybe you want to make some extra cash?

Or maybe you want to know how to blog for money so you can leave your present job?

I understand where you are coming from. Blogging is a great the way to make money online. Bren and I make over 90% of our online income through our blog.
Since it may seem overwhelming at first on how to blog for money, I wanted to take the time to clear it up for you. That’s why I created this guide on how to blog for money.

So let’s get started.

How to Blog for Money

As I previously mentioned, Bren and I make over 90% of our online income using our blog.  Now before we dive into the details on how to blog for money, I think it’s a probably a good idea for you know who I am.

Who Am I To Talk About Blogging?

How to Make Money Blogging - how to make money onlineThat’s a pretty good question.

Over 2 years ago I didn’t know what a blog was, let alone that I would be teaching others how to make money blogging… Seriously! No clue!

Bren and I started with a blog that had an affiliate program. At the time I took a blind faith purchase and got started. Well… it wasn’t like I had to take a serious investment because it was only $25/month. But still it was intimidating starting something I knew nothing about.

During the past 2 years, Bren and I learned a LOT! I took a lot of courses on blogging, and how to promote blogs to get traffic. I was eager to learn as much as I could. And of course I’m still learning… and I expect it to be a lifelong learning process as we strive to keep getting better and serve our readers better.

But that’s what we really enjoy doing… Providing value to you.

While learning to master blogging over the past couple years, we were able to get on the leaderboards for several affiliate programs. Our results are attributed to our blog. And our income keeps climbing.

Enough about me… I’m sure you’re anxious to learn about how to blog for money. Let’s get started.

VIDEO: How to Blog for Money

In the following video we talk about how to blog for money and build an online business.

[jwplayer player=”1″ mediaid=”9520″]

http://www.BrenAndMike.com/HowToBlog

The following three tips elaborate on what we discussed in the video.

Tip #1: Determine Your Blogging Platform

How to Blog for Money - How to Blog - blogging platformThe first step is to pick a blogging platform.  There are a lot of different platforms to choose from.

The first choice you have is free vs paid. Personally, if you plan on having a serious business I would completely avoid free. You have no control over your blog, and your provider can shut you down without notice. I know of several people that had their free blogs shut down with no recourse, resulting in hours of hours of work… gone!

Paid blogs have the additional advantage of you being able to have more control over the ad space, which is extremely important. You want to be the one monetizing the traffic you worked hard to get.

The following blog post talks about Why Start a Blog and What Blog Platform to Choose and this one talks about the Kalatu blog, How Do You Start a Blog with Kalatu Premium – With Almost No Effort.

Tip #2: Pick Your Niche (and Target Audience)

How to blog for moneyIt is important to pick a target audience for your blog. Who you are speaking directly to. And then further narrow it down to a niche.

If you try to target everyone with your blog, it will actually shrink your audience. For example, if you want to read a blog about parenting you won’t want to have to wade through blog posts about car repair. If you wanted to know about car repair you would go to a car repair blog.

Here are several articles on how to pick your target audience and your niche.

How to Choose the Right Niche For Your Blog
How to Pick a Blog Topic – When You Think “All of the Good Blog Niches Are Already Taken”
How to Blog – How to Choose a Blog Niche [5 Tips for Picking a Profitable Blog Topic] 

Tip #3: Pick Your Products

How to blog for moneyFinally pick the products you want to promote. Like we discussed in the video, you should pick products that would be of benefit to your target audience. And I suggest you Google products that fit your niche.  That could be actual products or services.

For example, if you have a dog grooming blog then google “dog affiliate” and I am sure you will find affiliate products that would suite your dog grooming blog. Don’t pick products that are not somehow congruent to your blog niche. Promoting boating equipment to dog groomers will not result in very effective use of your website ad space, plus you are doing your visitors a disservice.

You should have a range of different types of products that follow the structure of Lesson #5 below.

Additional Lessons on How to Blog for Money

The following are some additional lessons on how to blog for money.

Lesson #1: Serve Your Audience First

how to make money blogging - guideThe number one thing to consider when learning how to blog for money is that you need to be a teacher, a mentor, and/or an entertainer first. Provide as much value as you can.

The money will follow after.

If you focus only on the money first, then it will be a lot more difficult to be successful. Product value to your audience and you will develop a devote following. Your blog is the “freebie” that you’ll use to attract customers or clients.

Lesson #2: Own Your Ad Space

You need to control the ad space on your blog because this is where most of the money is to be made.

When you use free blogs, most likely the ad space is limited or used by the provider. Free sites are geared towards making money for the provider.

Even when you own your own blog you shouldn’t sell the ad space. Of course selling ad space is attractive because it is passive income, but you can often make three to ten times more (or more) using the same ad space to sell affiliate products, or your own products or services.

Lesson #3: Don’t Go for the Sale Right Away

how to make money blogging - guide - sale right awayDon’t ask for the sale right away in your blog.

What I mean is instead of trying to get your visitors to buy your products upfront, you delay asking for the sale until later.

This is similar to what I talked about in Lesson #1 where you want to provide lots of value. When someone joins your email list, give them value. Give a free gift like an audio, ebook, or a series of videos. On our blog we give away our free bootcamp so our visitor can register for our training series on how to make money online. After a couple of videos into the series, we start recommending affiliate products that they can purchase to achieve the same results we talk about.

Give value first, then much later ask for the sale.

I want to clarify this: some interpret this to be never ask for the sale. I know I made that mistake at first. You always want to inevitably ask for the sale. Just don’t ask for the sale right away.

Lesson #4: The Main Purpose of a Blog Is to Collect Visitor Emails

how to make money blogging - guide - collect emailsIn my opinion, the main purpose of a blog is to collect emails. Sure you have quality content to attract your visitors, but your ultimate goal is to ask for their email by having them opt into your newsletter or free gift (i.e. lead magnet).

If you don’t get their email during their first visit, there is a very small chance that they will ever return again. They will leave and never come back.

Once you have their email, you can keep asking them back to your blog so they can consume even more of your quality content. By doing that you earn their trust.

Lesson #5: Have a Mix of Products with Different Price Points

There are four different types of products you should have to successfully make good money with your blog: lead magnet, funded proposal, reoccurring income, and big ticket items.

Lead Magnet: This is the free gift you give to have your visitor register on your email list (discussed in Lessons 3 & 4).

Funded Proposal: This takes the form of relatively inexpensive products or services you sell to a broader audience to help pay for advertising and other overhead for the blog and online business. These products typically sell from $7 to $50. Not only does the funded proposal help fund your overhead, but it also builds trust as the buyer (your visitor now becomes a buyer lead) gets used to making purchases from you. It is a psychology thing: that small purchase starts to build trust. Plus it helps get their credit card out in case you have an upsell ready to go.

Reoccuring Income: These products work much like your cable or internet bill: the customer pays a monthly fee to keep the service. In this case you offer your customer a chance to buy a service or product that requires them to pay a monthly fee. This fee may range from $25 to $150 per month. There is a lot of power in developing a large reoccurring income stream because you can be making money even when you don’t get any new customers.

Big Ticket Items: This is my favorite type of product. Big ticket items typically range from $500 to $5000 or more! I love big ticket items because it is actually much less work to sell one $1000 product than it is to sell 100 products worth $10. Plus there is a lot less effort required to serve the 1 customer who bought the bigger ticket item instead of 100 customers who paid you next to nothing.

In the end it is best to have a range of all four types of products offered through your blog. It will give you the ability to service a much larger audience.

Lesson #6: Blog Consistently

I am advocate of publishing content daily.  But even if you can’t blog daily at least publish consistently to help serve your visitors. Even if you only publish a blog monthly (and that is the least amount I suggest you post a blog) make sure it is at the same time every month so your visitors know when to expect it.

The advantage of blogging daily, or almost daily, is that Google will tend to favor.  You will show Google that your blog content is fresh is relevant. That will help you rank higher in search results. Also by blogging daily you create a LOT more content hitting a lot more keywords to help attract even more traffic to your content.

Lesson #7: Longer Blog Posts Perform Better

Do you know what works best for getting traffic to your blog? Creating longer content.

I wrote a blog post about how many words you should target to have in your blog post. In that blog post, I recommended for your blog post should be at least 600 words if you want to get found by Google.

SEO expert Niel Patel recommended in one of his blog posts that your blog post should be at least 1500 words, or ideally 2000 or more words. My Google ranking results also show that longer blog posts of 1500 words or more do have a better chance of ranking in the search engines.

The data DOES support that longer blog posts tend to get better rankings by search engines.

[For reference, this blog post is over 3,400 words]

Lesson #8: Promote At Least As Much Time As You Spend Writing

how to make money blogging - guide - promoteJust writing your blog post isn’t enough. You need to promote your blog post so others find it.

You should spend at LEAST as much time promoting a blog post as you do writing it. If you spend 5 hours a week writing blog posts, then you should spend at least 5 hours a week promoting them.

If you can’t spend that much time promoting your blog posts, then scale back on your writing.  Scale back enough so that you can spend at least the same amount time promoting as you write otherwise you’re not effectively using your time.

For tips on how to promote a blog post check out “3 Things to Do Right AFTER You’re Done Writing a Blog Post.

Lesson #9: Use Your Time Wisely

Make sure you spend your time working on higher value activities.

What that that means to you depends on your goal:  If your goal is to increase traffic then measure the number of visitors you get for each hour of effort.

That means if you spend 3 hours writing and promoting a blog post that brings you 50 visitors, and you invest another 5 hours writing and promoting another blog post that brings you 250 visitors, you need to determine which effort best serves you. If you do the math for this example, you’ll see that the first blog post brings roughly 17 visitors per hour of effort while the second blog post brings you 50 visitors per hour of effort.

Know your numbers.  Make sure you are recording your time spent and analyzing your Google analytics.

You may find that guest posting, especially early on, may be better use of your time rather than publishing fresh content on your own blog.  In that case you may try to publish 25% of your early content effort as a guest blogger. You still have to build up your blog, but now you can more efficiently build up traffic to your own new blog.

Now don’t get me wrong… you still must create content for your new blog. You have to build it in order for it to be a more efficient use of your time. You want your own organic traffic.

But when you start, your new blog carries little weight.

Lesson #10: You Are Your Blog’s Worse Bottleneck

how to make money blogging - guide - slowing down growthThe biggest contributor slowing the progress of your blog is that you are doing everything. You have to deal with technical issues (unless you use a blog system like this), read books and articles about your field, answer questions from readers, syndicate/market your blog posts… and the list goes on.

The more you think about it, the more you must realize that you can’t do everything.

That’s where I take my queue from lean manufacturing processes. If a single machine is slowing down the work of others in the factory, then it can cost tons of money. A smart manufacturing manager will be willing to spend money to eliminate the bottlenecks. In most cases, eliminating the bottleneck is much cheaper than the cost of the actual bottleneck to production.

And this is true of almost any process, including blogging. While we typically don’t buy a new machine to help (though I did buy a new computer because my laptop was way too slow and out of date), we might purchase software, increase our internet speed, or hire a virtual assistant or programmer. Sure it may seem expensive at first glance, but the cost of the bottleneck is often much greater than what you have to spend to eliminate it.

Initially we did all the work on our blog ourselves.  But as we started to produce a small amount of income we reinvested in tools and software to speed things up. We eventually hired virtual assistants to help with some of the mundane and routine tasks that weren’t worth our time to perform; tasks that still had to be done.

Lesson #11: Start to Selling From Day 1

How many subscribers should you have before you start selling? 1,000? 5,000? More?

Ok, I know… I already gave you the answer in the title of this lesson: you should be selling from day one.

And the reason is because you need the money.

Remember when I said in Lesson #10 that you want to be able to automate as much as possible?  Since you are effectively the bottle neck in your business you need to get as many tools (and a virtual assistant) as quickly as possible. When you start making money, you can start to invest in these resources to further grow your business.

Now be careful not to make your blog into a huge commercial. You’ll push away your potential customers because nobody likes to be sold. Instead make the option to buy available, and remind them occasionally that you do have things available for purchase.

Lesson #12: Forget Your Google Search Results

Don’t look at your Google search results… don’t care about them….

Now don’t get me wrong: I am a firm advocate of SEO and getting found on Google. But when your blog is new, for the first 6 to 12 months you should not spend a lot of time on SEO optimizing your blog.

Your blog is new.  Google won’t really pay your blog much attention for the first three to six months.

Do some very basic SEO and keyword research, but don’t spend a lot on time on it. Spend your time by marketing your blog using other methods.  Eventually people will start finding your blog even without SEO optimized blog posts.

Just get to writing quality content.

You can always revisit old blog posts a year later and freshen them up, and SEO optimize them.

Lesson #13: Don’t Waste Your Time Creating Your Own Products

When you first start off, you will have NO CLUE what your customers want. They often don’t know what they want, so how would you know?

So spending time and money developing products is a waste of your time.

Instead there are plenty of affiliate products ready for you to promote to make money online.

Only once you have a firmly established blog and are making substantial money should you even think about making your own products. For the time being there is better uses for your time.

Lesson #14: Learn, Do, Teach

how to make money blogging - guide - learn do teachThis is the last but more important lesson. This lesson ties back to the very first lesson where I talk about serving your audience.

You best serve your audience be always striving to learn new things. Keep expanding your mind and strive to be the best in your niche.  Then share what you learn with your audience.

Practice what you learn, measure the results, and then teach them in your blog. Be sure to be open about your journey because your audience will appreciate your openness. Talk about your success AND your failures.

By continually learning new things you will never run out of great content to create for your blog and your audience.

I get it. Blogging is definitely the way to make money online. We make over 90% of our online income through our blog.

There are a lot of misconceptions about blogging that I want to clear up for you. That’s why I wanted to share this guide on how to make money blogging.

Lesson #7: Longer Blog Posts are Better

Do you know what works best for getting traffic to your blog? Creating longer content.

I wrote a blog post about how long should a blog post be, in which I recommend for your blog post should be 600 words bare minimum if you are blogging very regularly.

In one of his blog posts, SEO expert Niel Patel recommends that your blog post should be at least 1500 words, ideally 2000 words or more. My results also show that longer blog posts of 1500 words or more do have a better chance of ranking in the search engines.

The data does support that longer blog posts do get better rankings by search engines.

Lesson #8: Spend At Least As Much Time Promoting as Writing

how to make money blogging - guide - promoteJust writing your blog post isn’t enough. You need to promote it.

You should spend at LEAST as much time promoting a blog post as you do writing it. If you spend 7 hours a week writing blog posts, then you should spend at least 7 hours a week promoting them.

If you can’t spend that much time promoting your blog posts, then scale back on your writing so that you are spending at least the same amount time promoting as you write.

Lesson #9: Optimize Your Time

Spend your time working on higher value activities.

What that means depends on your goal.

If your goal is to increase traffic then measure the number of visitors you get for each hour of effort. That means if you spend three hours writing and promoting a blog post that brings you 50 visitors, and you invest another five hours writing and promoting another blog post that brings you 250 visitors, you need to determine which effort best serves you. If you do the math for our example, you will see that the first blog post brings roughly 17 visitors per hour of effort while the second blog post brings you 50 visitors per hour of effort.

Know your numbers by recording your time spent and analyzing your Google analytics.

You may find that guest posting, especially early on, may be better use of your time than publishing content on your own blog because it’s still new. In that case you may try to publish 25% of your early content effort as a guest blogger. You still have to build up your blog, but this way you can start building up traffic to your own blog.

Now don’t get me wrong… you still need to create content for your blog. You have to build it in order for it to be a more efficient use of your time. You want your own organic traffic.

But when you start, your new blog carries little weight.

Lesson #10: You Are Slowing Down the Growth of Your Blog

how to make money blogging - guide - slowing down growthYour biggest contributor to slowing down progress for your blog is that you’re doing everything for your blog. You have to deal with technical issues (unless you use a blog system like this), read books and articles about your field, answer questions from readers, syndicate/market your blog posts… and the list goes on.

The more you think about it, the more you realize that you can’t do everything.

That’s where I take my queue from lean manufacturing processes. If a single machine is slowing down the work of others in the factory, then it can cost tons of money. A smart manufacturing manager will be willing to spend money to eliminate the bottlenecks. In most cases, eliminating the bottleneck is much cheaper than the cost of the actual bottleneck to production.

This is true of almost any process, including blogging. While we may not buy a new machine to help (though I did buy a new computer because my laptop was way too slow and out of date), we might purchase software, increase our internet speed, or hire a virtual assistant or programmer. Sure it may seem expensive at first glance, but the cost of the bottleneck is probably much greater than what you would spend fixing it.

Initially we did all the work ourselves, but as we started to produce a small amount of income we started adding tools and software to speed things up. We eventually hired virtual assistants to help with some of the mundane and routine tasks that weren’t worth our time to perform, but still had to be done.

Lesson #11: Sell Right Away

How many subscribers should you have before you start selling? 1,000? 5,000? More?

The answer is you should be selling from day one.  Your business needs the funds.

You want to be able to automate as much as possible, like we discussed earlier. Since you are effectively the bottle neck in your business you need to get as many tools (and a virtual assistant) as quickly as possible. Once you start making money, you can start to invest in these resources to further grow your business.

Now be careful not to make your blog into a huge commercial. You’ll push away your potential customers because nobody likes to be sold. Instead make the option to buy available, and remind them occasionally that you do have things available for purchase.

Lesson #12: Ignore Your Google Search Results

Don’t get me wrong. I am a firm advocate of SEO and getting found on Google. But when your blog is new, for the first six months to a year you should not spend a lot of time on SEO optimizing your blog.

Your blog is new. Google won’t really pay it much attention for the first three to six months. Do some very basic SEO and keyword research, but don’t spend a lot of time on it. Spend your time on other forms of marketing your blog. Eventually people will start finding your blog even without SEO optimized blog posts.

Just get to writing quality content.

You can always revisit old blog posts a year later and freshen them up, and SEO optimize them.

Lesson #13: Don’t Waste Your Time with Your Own Products

When you first start off, you will have NO CLUE what your customers want. They often don’t know what they want. So spending time and money developing products is a waste of your time.

There are plenty of affiliate products ready for you to promote to make money online.

Only once you have a firmly established blog and are making substantial money should you even think about making your own products. Right now, though, there is better use of your time.

Lesson #14: Learn, Do, Teach

make money blogging - guide - learn do teachThis really is the last but more important lesson. It ties back to the very first lesson where I talk about serving your audience.

You best serve your audience be always striving to learn new things. Keep expanding your mind and strive to be the best in your niche.

Practice what you learn, measure the results, and then teach them in your blog. Be sure to be open about your journey because your audience will appreciate your openness. By continually learning new things you will never run out of great content to create for your blog and your audience.

How to Start a Blog

How to Start a Blog

Previously we talked about How to Make Money Blogging.  Now that we have wet your appetite, and also set realistic expectations… that not everyone makes money blogging, and it may take a while before you do… you are probably asking about “how to start a blog of my own?”  Well whether you are writing a blog to make money online, to promote your existing business or profession, or just want to share your thoughts on a subject you love… this article will get you started in the right direction.

What is Your Passion?

If you are going to write something regularly, and keep it interesting and fresh, you need to write about something that stokes your passion or that is a reflection of your daily experiences.

Politics.  Even though everyone has an opinion about the subject, you may have a unique point of view that needs to be heard.  And people my resonate with your personality that comes through the text.

Food.  This can be reviewing restaurants, sharing recipes, or tips on baking, etc.

Movies.  Include the trailer from the movie, and then talk about the movie itself.  You can even go to YouTube and look for clips from your favorite scenes.

Sports.  If you are a die hard fan for a sports team, you can connect with other fans by writing a blog about games and the team.

Your Business.  A blog can be a great way to promote your business (or charity) and for connecting with customers.  When combined with YouTube videos, blogs can be an amazing way to build attraction marketing for your customers, and make money online.

What Value Do you Want to Give People

OK, now that you have picked a topic that will motivate you to write your blog posts, how do you want to help people on that topic?  Narrow your blogs focus down some more by considering if you want to do something along the lines of the following:

Teaching.  If you know something on a topic… really anything… you can teach it.  Even if you only know a little on a particular topic, you can still write about it and share with an audience.  Guaranteed there will be people out that know less than you on a topic.

Talk about the news and trends.  This can be about your favorite sections in the newspaper, or online article.

Be the motivator.  Inspire people to be the best they can be.

Be the clown.Make people laugh  If you are the type of person who. loves to make people laugh.  You can talk about your experiences in a humorous way.

Also know what not to blog about.  Your friends, coworkers, family , etc may take a dim view of anything on your blow if it blows open secrets. Know the limits – check with your human resources about workplace to make sure you are not doing anything outside of normal procedure.

Learn How to Start a Blog From the Competition

Take a little time and look at other blogs with the same topic and see how they blog.  You can use this exercise to both see how you can make your blog more unique and identify your niche.  It will also give you ideas on formatting, and topics.

Come Up With a Blog Name

Now  that you know what you want to write about and how you are unique, you can brainstorm a list of names and write down all the ideas on paper.  Share the ideas with friends and family to get even more ideas.

Research Keywords Related To Your Subject

In order for people to find your blog on Google or other search engines, you need to use keywords that people are searching for.  Imagine that you are searching for a blog like yours… what would you type to search for it?  For example if someone is looking for where to get started blogging they may type, “How to Start a Blog“.  That would take them to this or similar blogs.  Luckily there are tools that help you with coming up with keywords like Google Adwords Keyword Tool and Ubersuggest.

These tools will generate words or phrases associate with your topic.  Pick the words or phrases that have a high number of monthly searches but have low to medium levels of competition.  Including a great keyword in your blog name is a good idea.

Make sure you keep checking up on these keywords from time to time.  These keywords are great for weaving into your blog posts to further help your blog be found in search engines.

Decide Where to Create Your Blog

There are lots of places to create and host your blog, but my two favorites are Influx Entrepreneur WordPress and Empower Network Kalatu Blog.  The Influx Entrepreneur Word Press blog is a powerful tool for customizing your blog to look like any website or blog you see on the internet.  The only thing is that it takes a little while to customize to your satisfaction.  The Empower Network Kalatu Blogging System was designed so that it is very easy to use.  You don’t have the same control over the look of the blog, but you can get started within minutes of registering.

I personally use both blogging platforms to host all of my blogs.

Now Get Started!

You now have everything you need to get started blogging today!  It really is a lot of fun.

One final tip: I highly recommend that you write a blog post every day – even if it is a short blog post.  Get into the habit of writing your blog every day and eventually you’ll have 100’s of posts that will draw a lot of traffic to your blog.  When you have substantial traffic the blog will be come a means of making money for you.  Check out this blog post to learn more about how to Blog Daily and Create An Online Identity.

Million Dollar Ring Formula Review

In this Secrets of the Million Dollar Ring Formula review, I’m going to lay it all out.  I’m going to explain to you what it is, and whether this is some online scam.

Based on my research, the Million Dollar Ring Formula is being called “the best online marketing funnel ever created.” The Million Dollar Ring Formula is a internet sales funnel that was made to do one thing and one thing only: help you make money online so you can finally be successful online.

It is VERY important to realize that “Million Dollar Ring Formula” isn’t one of those “get rich quick” schemes. Far from it.  Instead, Million Dollar Ring Formula is a tested and proven online marketing system which provides you the tools needed to build a profitable online business.

In other words, the Million Dollar Ring Formula requires your effort to work.  It is basically half amazing marketing funnel, and half you.  If you can do 50% of the work (which is straight forward), the Million Dollar Ring Formula online marketing funnel will do the rest.  Sounds pretty good, huh?

I know , you want to know what’s the big deal with Million Dollar Ring Formula.   Find out by reading the rest of my Million Dollar Ring Formula review.

What are the Secrets of the Million Dollar Ring?

The Million Dollar Ring Formula is an online marketing opportunity launched in June of 2015. This online marketing system is being promoted as the best way to take internet marketing newbies by the hand into the industry.  You can literally have your new business opportunity up and running within a week!

Free Bootcamp Training Mini-Course

How Does The Million Dollar Ring Formula Work?

The basic idea behind the Secrets of the Million Dollar Ring system is that you’re buying into a carefully engineered online marketing system.  There is literally years of experience backing it.  The Million Dollar Ring Formula system has everyday people all over the world using it to make money online, some for the first time.

We’re not talking about a couple dollars, where you would be better instead working full time at a minimum wage job (like a many of the other systems out there).  Instead the Million Dollar Ring Formula is a system where people have made tens of thousands of dollars per month. Some of the members make that amount in a week!!

Now I’m sure you are wondering, “So, Mike, how exactly does the Million Dollar Ring Formula work?”

So let’s talk about that…

How Does It Work?

First of all, the system is Buying-Trigger Driven.

“Buying-Tigger Driven” means that it’s based on the known buying habits of internet users and buyers. The idea here is that if you develop a system that takes advantage of the right rhythmic pattern of people, you’ll get more conversions, or sales.

Please keep in mind that you are half of this equation.  Your half of this partnership includes you doing things like:

  1. Build Rapport. Within you, you have a story to tell people that they can relate to and make them believe in you, and trust you.  You just have to be yourself and express who you are.
  2. Establish Authority. Give people reasons to believe in you.  When you create content, communicate like you are an authority on the subject.  Make them believe they’re reading the words of an expert.  This is can be easy with some practice.
  3. Build Social Proof. Initially  you build social proof by leveraging the accomplishments of others.  Then as you get your “wins” these wins become your new social proof.
  4. Initiat reciprocity. You help the Million Dollar Ring Formula system build the start of reciprocity.  The concept is to “get someone to give you something.” The creator of the Million Dollar Ring Formula sales funnel says that the old way of reciprocity is flawed and can be improved upon. Therefore the Million Dollar Ring Formula system instead involves you giving someone something, and then expecting that person to give you something in return.  It all starts with you giving something of value like an article, or a video, that helps them.
  5. Create back & forth micro commitments all the way through the funnel. When a customer commits to you (like by clicking a button), you commit to them, and this goes back and forth.  This process gives you a higher chance of making a sale.
  6. Remove Risk. It is commonly known that people are hesitant to purchase a product or service online from someone they don’t trust.  They see that there are always risks involved.  And these perceived risks are the fastest way to stop a sale. A 30-day money back guarantee is a great way to remove risk, for example.  You can first remove that fear of risk by building rapport with your audience.  As you build rapport they will trust what you have to offer.  And the Million Dollar Ring Formula training explains how to build that trust.
  7. Leverage trust. Finally use all the trust you’ve built up before, and as they go throughout the funnel, to get that potential customer to buy.

Now if you can do all 7 of these steps consistently, you can almost certainly make money with Million Dollar Ring Formula. The 7 steps listed above are the Million Dollar Ring Formula sales funnel in a nutshell.

What I’m talking about there are not really new concepts.  You can find similar sales funnels online.

Plus many sales funnels also add “scarcity” as the 8th option. With perceived scarcity you are trying to persuade your buyers into believing that there’s only a limited number of something available.  An example would be there are only 100 ebooks given out every day, or that the discounted sales price will expire in 30 minutes.

Instead the Million Dollar Ring Formula sales funnel presents scarcity in a more concrete way: each of the videos in the sales funnel have a timer and a set of associated bonuses.

Million Dollar Ring Formula Front Pages and Landing Pages

When you become a Million Dollar Ring Formula member, you get to access to the professional landing pages optimized by experts in industry to create sales.

These landing pages are amazing how well they work. While no landing webpage will ever be perfect, the Million Dollar Ring Formula landing pages are breaking records.

Can You Make Money With The Million Dollar Ring Formula?

That’s the “million dollar” question, right?

One of the best parts about Secrets of the Million Dollar Ring Formula is that it’s being used successfully by people all over the world…  to generate amazing online income.

Depending on how you are presented the Truth or Hype offer, you’ll see a number of different stories from real people using the system. You’ll hear from people all over the world.  You will be able to select who you want to hear from by hovering your mouse over a part of a world map.

What’s amazing is that these are real, normal people.  These real, normal people are telling their own personal stories about how Million Dollar Ring Formula had an impact on their lives. Some of these people make an amazing $750,000 per year or more, while other people make less.

Regardless, Million Dollar Ring Formula is open and honest about the fact that not everybody will become millionaires using this system.  But by using the system, a lot of people will be better off than they were before they started the program.

Get Started - Million Dollar Ring Formula Review | Is Million Dollar Ring Formula a Scam?

Creating Your Account with the Million Dollar Ring Formula

As part of the Million Dollar Ring Formula application process, you’ll start by entering your email address.

After entering your email address, you’re going to be prompted to put in more contact information. You’ll be eventually asked to submit a valid credit card. After confirming your membership, your credit card will be charged a small $9 fee for the 5 day trial (NOTE: all disclosed to you during the sign-up process. There are no hidden fees).

Things get really cool after you pay the $9 fee. You’ll get to progress through a series of training programs and guides. And you even get this really cool progress meter which helps illustrate your achievements along the way.

This progress meter goes up the more videos you watch, the more online guides you read, and the more tutorials you consume.

Occasionally you’ll find a video that you are locked out of. To see those additional videos you may need to opt in to a full membership or “level up”.

For some videos, you’ll also need to click the “Trust” button. And some videos have just one “Trust” button. You’ll even have to click an “Open Mind” button at one point.

Other videos require multiple Trust buttons and a survey.  The survey will help determine how much money you want your online business to make.  It will even narrow things down by asking you what you want to buy with that money. The Million Dollar Ring Formula will use this information to help create a plan to achieve your goals.

You don’t need to answer these survey questions, but if you don’t it will rob you of the experience. You will see your answers come back at other points in your training. If you don’t answer the survey questions completely, the videos later will report something like “You have to make X amount of dollars per hour to buy this boat, or X amount of dollars per month to buy this house.” Therefore I encourage you to spend the extra couple minutes needed to finish the survey.

Final Take Away: Who Should Use The Million Dollar Ring Formula?

The Million Dollar Ring Formula system isn’t like anything else. You can’t compare it to the usual low-quality online marketing programs you see online. It isn’t requiring you to pay $40 for a stupid e-book (which I don’t anyone reads) or sign up for pointless “video guides” with some so-called online marketing guru for $500.

Instead, the Secrets of the Million Dollar Ring Formula is a proven marketing and sales system that will help even average people earn money with an online business. If you’re hardworking and self motivated, your earning potential gets even higher.

The Million Dollar Ring Formula system take you through every step of educating you on starting your online business. Whole more advanced users will find some of the early information to be repetitive, rookie marketers will appreciate the review.

Basically the Million Dollar Ring Formula begins with a trial. You can cancel immediately if you don’t like it.  If you do realize how powerful it can be for you, then there are other training lessons you can absorb as you “level up” through the system.

So that’s what the Million Dollar Ring Formula is all about.  Take the next step and click the Next Step button below.

3 Key Tips Showing How to Blog Successfully

3 Key Tips Showing How to Blog Successfully” written by Mike Marko.

Have you ever stared at your computer, with no clue where to start?  Let alone know how to blog successfully?

I know what that’s like…. because I was there. About 18 months ago I had no clue what a blog was, never mind how to blog successfully.

But once you learn how to blog successfully, generating leads, keeping yourself in front of your customers, and making money from your online business won’t be a problem again!

What’s why today I want to talk to you about some of the basics on how to blog successfully. We’re going to talk about the three most important action steps you must take when you want to blog successfully.

Tip #1 on How to Blog Successfully: Choose a Niche

It is important that before you start creating content that you first a blog niche (or subject matter) that is alignment with your passions, specialty, or products and services. Don’t pick a niche that you are not really interested in just because you think you’ll make money online with that topic. If you end up doing that, then you’ll lack passion in your content, and that passion will show up in your writing and you are a lot less likely to succeed.

When you blog, you are trying to get the word out. You are blogging to share what you are passionate about, and you give your readers an opportunity to connect with you, in a social kind of way. Therefore if you fail to choose a blog niche that you will be motivated to write about, it will show in writing. If you are not expressing your passion in your writing, it will show. When you don’t have the right mindset when blogging, then you will have the opposite effect of your desire.

SO put your heart into your writing.

Plus if you pick a topic that you are not really interested in, it will be very difficult to blog daily. In that case you’ll have a tough time motivating yourself to create content daily. Your blog will probably be neglected for days or weeks at a time, and then you will constantly be losing momentum. A blog without momentum will never succeed.

Tip #2 on How to Blog Successfully: What is Your Plan? 

When people first get started they typically want to rush and get their website out there as quickly as possible.  But instead you should pause, and ask yourself a few questions. Step back, and determine your blog overall goals and game plan before you even begin your website. Start by answering these questions:

  • Do you know who is the competition in your chosen niche?
  • Do you know how your competition makes their money?
  • How are you going to make money with your blog?
  • How will you stand out from all the other competing blogs?
  • Have you thought abut what kind of problems do you expect with starting a blog?
  • How long will it take to start making money online with your blog?

You don’t have to answer every question.  But you need to at least have given though to what the answers might be… then formulate actual answers within the first month of starting your blog. Of course your blog will evolve over time, our is evolving, but you need to at least have a good footing to start with.

Tip #3 on How to Blog Successfully: Start Doing Some Basic SEO 

SEO, or Search Engine Optimization,  is extremely important to the success of a blog. It is very unfortunate that many bloggers don’t really put much thought and effort into this area. The end result?  … they end up blogging with no traffic!  Nobody finds their blog.

You really need to know some basics in SEO in order to optimize your blog show up in searches. SEO is the driving force behind your blog being found by your readers.

Conclusion on How to Blog Successfully

I have covered the basics on how to blog successfully… so don’t forget to implement them as you create your content.  If you are consistent with every one of your blog posts, you will have a much better chance at being successful. And successful blogs are usually a lot more profitable too!

5 Easy Steps on How to Start a Blog and Make Money Online

5 Easy Steps on How to Start a Blog and Make Money Online” written by Mike Marko.

Are you curious on how to make money online?  And you heard that you need a blog and are now wondering how to start a blog?

Then look no further.  We’ll be going through five easy steps on how to start a blog.

A blog can be a solid way to make long-term income online.  All you have to do if write stuff about things you are actually interested in.  Sure there is a little more to it than that, and it isn’t for everyone.  This is definitely not a get rich quick plan.  If you are looking for something like that, then blogging is definitely not the place for you.

Sure you can make a lot of money online, but like any business including traditional brick-and-mortar businesses, it’s not guaranteed.  If someone tells you elsewise then they are not be 100% honest.

There’s a big difference between making money online and going to a job every day: If you do your blog right, the work you do initially will continue making money for years to come.  You are investing your time instead of trading your time for money.

How Does A Blog Work for Making Money Online?

Search engines like Google find and cache (store for reference) the article that you write.  As you write each post is “worth more” to the search engines.  As your site gains credibility it means that you website will get more and more traffic.

As you get more people visiting your website, they have the opportunity to look also at what you are promoting and may purchase something.  This is more likely when you are writing an article that helps them satisfy a need of theirs (and hence the reason for the online search in the first place).

Basically the more you blog, the more traffic you get.  The more traffic you get the more sales you can get.

And the sooner you get started, the sooner you can start to make money online.

The first step is to find a home for your blog.  This will also become your home on the internet.  When you write and publish your blog posts, this is where they will show up.  You decorate and personalize your blog just like you would your own home… to give it a bit of your taste and personality.

Don’t make the mistake of confusing an old-school web host for a blog host. If you get a web host you are basically buying just the shell of your new home – to carry the analogy further, you still have to build all the walls and install the plumbing yourself!

Unless you have time to spend and love techie stuff, go with a full service blog host where someone else manages all the techie stuff so that you can focus on creating content.

Bren and I highly recommend the Influx Entrepreneur blog website for this.  They provide a “well-built and well maintained home” for your blog.  That way you can focus on communicating with your audience.  This blogging system also has the ability to help you rank faster on the search engines (remember how being found can help increase traffic, and thus more income).  The Influx Entrepreneur blogging system can also be upgraded to be a membership site where you can charge for access to areas of your site.

The Basics About How to Make Money Blogging

The Basics About How to Make Money Blogging” written by Mike Marko.

Bren and I have been blogging for a year and a half now, and our blog is really taking off in making us income. But it wasn’t always this good, so we want to teach you what worked for us so you can hopefully get to profit sooner than we did.

Are you ready?

Let’s dive in…

Before We Start Learning How to Make Money Blogging

Ok, before we really get started and I show you how to make money blogging, I want to lay it out for you. You will not get rich quick blogging. Far from it. It takes time to build up your blog before you start rolling in the dough. A year ago one of my mentors pointed out leaders in my niche had at LEAST 300 blog posts per website… and he told me that was our target before we started getting the traffic to make money online with our blog.

And you know what? He was right…. It was right around 300 blog posts that our website started ranking for tougher keywords and we started making good money from our blog. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t stick around long enough blogging before they start to really learn how to make money blogging. They get discouraged well before the money start flowing.

So you need to ask yourself, are you ready to put in the work to start making your blog profitable? Now remember that your content is evergreen… meaning that once you get your website it will continue to make money online for you even on posts years old. But you have to first build it and you’re following up.

If you don’t see yourself blogging regularly… making the decision to work on your website for an hour at night instead of watching TV, then this isn’t for you. But if you are serious about making money online then this is the BEST way to make long term income.

Let’s Start Blogging in 10 Minutes

Before you can actually start blogging, you need to get a blogging platform.  There are hundreds to choose from, but I prefer ready to go blogging platforms.  The reason is that you don’t have to worry about hosting, and all the technical challenges with hosting your own blog, but also you get the power of an established blogging platform working for you… which helps you rank on Google.

A blogging platform we recommend is the Kalatu Empower Network blogging system.

How It Started For Us

About two years ago Sam Crowley approached us about making money online with affiliate marketing.  At the time we had no clue “how to make money blogging” (I didn’t even really know what a blog was).

But we dove in anyway not sure what we were getting into.  Over the course of the first half a year or so we basically spun our wheels.  We didn’t really know what we were doing.  We knew some of the basics on how to make money online, but I didn’t apply myself initially because I didn’t really trust the idea of making money online.

Then in December of 2013 we met Hector Guerrero a couple days before New Year’s Eve.  I remember sitting in the hotel on our vacation in Miami Florida, talking to Hector for the first time.  For an hour he opened my eyes to what it really took to make money blogging.  We started our new blog a week later, http://brenandmike.influxentrepreneur.info.  We didn’t start making money right away, but as Hector told us, around the 300 page mark our online income started growing substantially.

Bren and I are now on a mission to help others learn how to make money blogging, and avoid the pitfalls we had the first year.

Blogging Basics

I am going to boil this down to some of the essentials.  There are entire books written on the subject, so I am not going to try and cover everything.  Instead I am going to focus on how to get started to make money blogging.

What Is A Blog

The word, blog, is short for “weblog”.  I guess an easy way of putting it is a blog is a website with the entries posted in reverse chronological order.  Although creating a blog used to require technical skills, today software programs have made blogging extremely easy.  You don’t have to have any technical skills.  The “Kalatu blogging system” we discussed earlier is a system that can be setup by clicking a few buttons.

Is it Easy to Start a Blog

Starting a blog is extremely easy.  And the Kalatu blogging system makes it even easier.

How Much Does It Cost to Blog?

There are many free services to start your blog, but I recommend against using them as your primary blog.  You don’t have control over the advertising space, plus the host can shut you down without noticed (remember, there is really no such thing as truly free).  Can you imagine having your blog shut down after blogging for 6 months?  That is why I recommend against free blogs.

How to Make Money Blogging

It is difficult for people initially to understand how to make money blogging because it is so much different than most things you have been exposed to.  I think one way of describing it is like your website is a highway and you have billboards (ads) on your site.  As visitors arrive on your site, read your content, and move along the billboard will catch their eye and hopefully they will take action and click on the ad (and maybe buy something).

The more content you have, the more traffic you get, and the more eyes that see your “billboards”.

There are several things you can write about and make money from online. The following is a list of potential ways to make money blogging.

Kalatu Empower Network Affiliate Product Sales

Promoting Kalatu is my favorite way to make money blogging.  In this case you are promoting the same blogging platform that you are using, so that instead of your blog costing you money, it actually pays you.  All you need to do is get the Kalatu blog and the Empower Network affiliate membership, and off you go.  They supply you with everything you need to start making money online.

Software Tools Affiliate Product Sales

When I talk about how to make money blogging, I also recommend promoting the tools that you are using to build your online blogging business.  For example, I use tools like Onlywire to help automate the process of social marketing and bookmarking our blog posts.  If you use video editing software, promote that software.  Almost all companies now have free affiliate programs that you can use to help make additional money.

Now it is really difficult to make a large income with these programs because the commissions are often low, but they do help build upon what you make from the Kalatu blog sales (and other Empower Network products).  Plus by doing this, you get an opportunity to sell solutions to people who are not interested in the main offer (the blog and Empower Network products).

Amazon.com Affiliate Product Sales

Along the idea of promoting the products you use, I also recommend promoting the Amazon products that go along with your blog posts.  For example, if you talk about a book like we did in the blog post, “Wild” Chery Strayled and Using Your Own Inner Silence, then you can promote a link to buy the book from Amazon.  Amazon affiliate membership is free.  You can do this with books, CD’s, clothes, smart phones, etc… almost anything you can buy on Amazon.com.

Now That You Know About How to Make Money Blogging

So now that you know the basics, it’s time to start blogging.  Get your Kalatu blogging system by clicking the link below.  Happy blogging!

Truth or Hype TV Review | Is Truth or Hype a Scam?

Truth or Hype TV Review | Is Truth or Hype a Scam?” written by Mike Marko.

What is Truth or Hype?  Is Truth or Hype TV something that can help you create additional income using the internet, or is someone trying to pull the wool over your eyes?  Read this Truth or Hype review to find out more.

Truth or Hype TV Review

Truth or Hype TV Review

In this Truth or Hype review, I’m going to lay it all out.  I’m going to explain to you what it is, and whether this is some online scam.

Based on my research, the Truth or Hype TV is being called “the best online marketing funnel ever created.” The Truth or Hype TV is a internet sales funnel that was made to do one thing and one thing only: help you make money online so you can finally be successful online.

It is VERY important to realize that “Truth or Hype” isn’t one of those “get rich quick” schemes. Far from it.  Instead, Truth or Hype is a tested and proven online marketing system which provides you the tools needed to build a profitable online business.

In other words, Truth or Hype requires your effort to work.  It is basically half amazing marketing funnel, and half you.  If you can do 50% of the work (which is straight forward), the Truth or Hype online marketing funnel will do the rest.  Sounds pretty good, huh?

I know , you want to know what’s the big deal with Truth or Hype.   Find out by reading the rest of my Truth or Hype review.

What is Truth or Hype?

Truth or Hype is an online marketing opportunity launched in January of 2015. This online marketing system is being promoted as the best way to take internet marketing newbies by the hand into the industry.  You can literally have your new business opportunity up and running within a week!

Free Bootcamp Training Mini-Course

How Does Truth or Hype Work?

The basic idea behind the Truth or Hype system is that you’re buying into a carefully engineered online marketing system.  There is literally years of experience backing it.  The Truth or Hype system has everyday people all over the world using it to make money online, some for the first time.

We’re not talking about a couple dollars, where you would be better instead working full time at a minimum wage job (like a many of the other systems out there).  Instead Truth or Hype is a system where people have made tens of thousands of dollars per month. Some of the members make that amount in a week!!

Now I’m sure you are wondering, “So, Mike, how exactly does Truth or Hype work?”

So let’s talk about that…

How Does It Work?

First of all, the system is Buying-Trigger Driven.

“Buying-Tigger Driven” means that it’s based on the known buying habits of internet users and buyers. The idea here is that if you develop a system that takes advantage of the right rhythmic pattern of people, you’ll get more conversions, or sales.

Please keep in mind that you are half of this equation.  Your half of this partnership includes you doing things like:

  1. Build Rapport. Within you, you have a story to tell people that they can relate to and make them believe in you, and trust you.  You just have to be yourself and express who you are.
  2. Establish Authority. Give people reasons to believe in you.  When you create content, communicate like you are an authority on the subject.  Make them believe they’re reading the words of an expert.  This is can be easy with some practice.
  3. Build Social Proof. Initially  you build social proof by leveraging the accomplishments of others.  Then as you get your “wins” these wins become your new social proof.
  4. Initiat reciprocity. You help the Truth and Hype system build the start of reciprocity.  The concept is to “get someone to give you something.” The creator of the Truth or Hype sales funnel says that the old way of reciprocity is flawed and can be improved upon. Therefore the Truth or Hype system instead involves you giving someone something, and then expecting that person to give you something in return.  It all starts with you giving something of value like an article, or a video, that helps them.
  5. Create back & forth micro commitments all the way through the funnel. When a customer commits to you (like by clicking a button), you commit to them, and this goes back and forth.  This process gives you a higher chance of making a sale.
  6. Remove Risk. It is commonly known that people are hesitant to purchase a product or service online from someone they don’t trust.  They see that there are always risks involved.  And these perceived risks are the fastest way to stop a sale. A 30-day money back guarantee is a great way to remove risk, for example.  You can first remove that fear of risk by building rapport with your audience.  As you build rapport they will trust what you have to offer.  And the Truth or Hype training explains how to build that trust.
  7. Leverage trust. Finally use all the trust you’ve built up before, and as they go throughout the funnel, to get that potential customer to buy.

Now if you can do all 7 of these steps consistently, you can almost certainly make money with Truth or Hype. The 7 steps listed above are the Truth or Hype sales funnel in a nutshell.

What I’m talking about there are not really new concepts.  You can find similar sales funnels online.

Plus many sales funnels also add “scarcity” as the 8th option. With perceived scarcity you are trying to persuade your buyers into believing that there’s only a limited number of something available.  An example would be there are only 100 ebooks given out every day, or that the discounted sales price will expire in 30 minutes.

Instead the Truth or Hype sales funnel presents scarcity in a more concrete way: each of the videos in the sales funnel have a timer and a set of associated bonuses.

Truth or Hype TV Review | Is Truth or Hype a Scam?

Truth or Hype Front Pages and Landing Pages

When you become a Truth or Hype member, you get to access to the professional landing pages optimized by experts in industry to create sales.

These landing pages are amazing how well they work. While no landing webpage will ever be perfect, the Truth or Hype landing pages are breaking records.

Can You Make Money With Truth or Hype?

That’s the “million dollar” question, right?

One of the best parts about Truth or Hype is that it’s being used successfully by people all over the world…  to generate amazing online income.

Depending on how you are presented the Truth or Hype offer, you’ll see a number of different stories from real people using the system. You’ll hear from people all over the world.  You will be able to select who you want to hear from by hovering your mouse over a part of a world map.

What’s amazing is that these are real, normal people.  These real, normal people are telling their own personal stories about how Truth or Hype had an impact on their lives. Some of these people make an amazing $750,000 per year or more, while other people make less.

Regardless, Truth or Hype is open and honest about the fact that not everybody will become millionaires using this system.  But by using the system, a lot of people will be better off than they were before they started the program.

Get Started - Truth or Hype TV Review | Is Truth or Hype a Scam?

Creating Your Account with Truth or Hype

As part of the Truth or Hype application process, you’ll start by entering your email address.

After entering your email address, you’re going to be prompted to put in more contact information. You’ll be eventually asked to submit a valid credit card. After confirming your membership, your credit card will be charged a small $7 fee for the 5 day trial (NOTE: all disclosed to you during the sign-up process. There are no hidden fees).

Things get really cool after you pay the $7 fee. You’ll get to progress through a series of training programs and guides. And you even get this really cool progress meter which helps illustrate your achievements along the way.

This progress meter goes up the more videos you watch, the more online guides you read, and the more tutorials you consume.

Occasionally you’ll find a video that you are locked out of. To see those additional videos you may need to opt in to a full membership or “level up”.

For some videos, you’ll also need to click the “Trust” button. And some videos have just one “Trust” button. You’ll even have to click an “Open Mind” button at one point.

Other videos require multiple Trust buttons and a survey.  The survey will help determine how much money you want your online business to make.  It will even narrow things down by asking you what you want to buy with that money. Truth or Hype will use this information to help create a plan to achieve your goals.

You don’t need to answer these survey questions, but if you don’t it will rob you of the experience. You will see your answers come back at other points in your training. If you don’t answer the survey questions completely, the videos later will report something like “You have to make X amount of dollars per hour to buy this boat, or X amount of dollars per month to buy this house.” Therefore I encourage you to spend the extra couple minutes needed to finish the survey.

Final Take Away: Who Should Use Truth or Hype?

The Truth or Hype system isn’t like anything else. You can’t compare it to the usual low-quality online marketing programs you see online. It isn’t requiring you to pay $40 for a stupid e-book (which I don’t anyone reads) or sign up for pointless “video guides” with some so-called online marketing guru for $500.

Instead, Truth or Hype is a proven marketing and sales system that will help even average people earn money with an online business. If you’re hardworking and self motivated, your earning potential gets even higher.

The Truth or Hype system take you through every step of educating you on starting your online business. Whole more advanced users will find some of the early information to be repetitive, rookie marketers will appreciate the review.

Basically Truth and Hype begins with a $7 for a trial. You can cancel immediately if you don’t like it.  If you do realize how powerful it can be for you, then there are other training lessons you can absorb as you “level up” through the system.

So that’s what Truth or Hype is all about.  Take the next step and click the Next Step button below.

5 Easy Steps on How to Start a Blog and Make Money Online

5 Easy Steps on How to Start a Blog and Make Money Online” written by Mike Marko.

Are you curious on how to make money online?  And you heard that you need a blog and are now wondering how to start a blog?

Then look no further.  We’ll be going through five easy steps on how to start a blog.

A blog can be a solid way to make long-term income online.  All you have to do if write stuff about things you are actually interested in.  Sure there is a little more to it than that, and it isn’t for everyone.  This is definitely not a get rich quick plan.  If you are looking for something like that, then blogging is definitely not the place for you.

Sure you can make a lot of money online, but like any business including traditional brick-and-mortar businesses, it’s not guaranteed.  If someone tells you elsewise then they are not be 100% honest.

There’s a big difference between making money online and going to a job every day: If you do your blog right, the work you do initially will continue making money for years to come.  You are investing your time instead of trading your time for money.

How Does A Blog Work for Making Money Online?

Search engines like Google find and cache (store for reference) the article that you write.  As you write each post is “worth more” to the search engines.  As your site gains credibility it means that you website will get more and more traffic.

As you get more people visiting your website, they have the opportunity to look also at what you are promoting and may purchase something.  This is more likely when you are writing an article that helps them satisfy a need of theirs (and hence the reason for the online search in the first place).

Basically the more you blog, the more traffic you get.  The more traffic you get the more sales you can get.

And the sooner you get started, the sooner you can start to make money online.

Let’s Learn How to Start a Blog

Are you ready to start building your online business?  Let’s walk through the steps.
