Subject: [FIRSTNAME], making money on the web

Dear [FIRSTNAME],

It’s true “most people don’t want to work” is a universal
truth. So, if you don’t want to work, why are you selling
yourself into slavery for relatively low pay? You might as well
get the most out of something that you dislike doing. I’ve never
seen any clerk who is happy where he/she is. They usually
complain about low salaries and too much work. If you’re getting
paid to work (something you don’t want to do) doesn’t it make
sense to aim for something higher?

There are plenty of opportunities for making money in the
internet. You can do this for something on the side, or, you can
make it your full time job. It just depends on how much time you
want to commit to earning money in a rather easy manner. As for
myself, why am I writing this article for relatively low pay?
Well the dollar has a pretty high value from where I am sitting.
If I worked in an office, I wouldn’t be earning as much I am
now.

The point is that you need to maximize your earning potential.
If you happen to be in a country like mine whose local currency
is struggling against the dollar, then doing this writing job
will earn you more than you normally would in day at the office.
As far as potential earnings in the internet is concerned, there
are plenty of avenues and opportunities to choose from.

The first opportunity with the most potential for earning big
bucks is by turning yourself into internet salespersons. Unlike
salespeople of the physical world, you don’t have to go around
the city commuting, sweating, huffing, puffing and talking your
throat sore. All you need to do is to choose a form of internet
marketing that you think you can be good at. Once you do make
your choice, exhaust all the possibilities until you get very
positive results. Nothing good comes out of something
half-baked.

A fast way to earn a commission is by affiliating yourself with
major vendor sites. You sign for their program and they will
give you instructions to set up an affiliate account. Basically,
you promote the vendor site and their products in your own
website or in articles that you write and submit to ezines. You
will need to place links into your website or ezine article that
will lead to the site or product you are promoting.

If you decide to go into affiliate marketing, you will also
need to learn how to compose search engine optimized (SEO)
articles. The web is teeming with instructions on SEO
composition. These articles will help you with search engine
results. They will contain keywords that the search engine will
identify and index according to its relevance to the searcher’s
query and your article.

Then, there are the make fast money programs which you have to
pay for before you can join. (`nuff said)

By the way, don’t be fooled by those paid to read email
advertisements. One does pay you to just read but it sends an
average of one email a day and gives out 2 cents. Other similar
programs require you to accept offers or deals from the sites
that they advertise before they give out cash.

To your success,
YOUR NAME HERE

P.S. Making good money in the internet can be easy. But if you
really want good money, I suggest you try the different
affiliate programs of major vendor sites in the internet.
Remember its good money so you will have to spend time to make
your program a success. Once you have it set-up, you can ask for
your retirement or separation pay.

5 tips to magnetize your book web site with benefits

5 Tips to Magnetize Your Book Web Site With Benefits

Would you like to create a magnetic home page, one that magnetizes your visitors? Webster’s Dictionary defines magnetic as ‘powerfully attractive.’ Best selling author and owner of the largest advertising agency in the 20s, Bruce Barton said, “The theme (any advertisement) ought to be based on two principles-first that a man is interested in himself, second, that he is interested in other people.”

What will make your home page interesting? Good design plays an important part in your site’s overall effectiveness. But it’s not the flash that will interest your audience. It’s not the jingles that will connect with your visitor. It’s the benefits – the ‘what’s in it for me’ list that create interest and even desire. Create a home page filled with benefits and it will pull your visitors in. What you say your product/service can do is much more attractive than a beautiful web page with weak copy.

Promote with benefits instead of your bio, your credentials and even the features of your product/service. Put them in their proper place on your site. But your audience will most want to know the value of your product to them.

You must answer questions like, “Will it solve my particular problem?” “What will I gain?” “What will I lose if I don’t use your service?” Some universal benefits answer the how tos: getting more passion, more energy, less fatigue, more money, good relationships, more time, less trouble, less stress, less drama and trauma. Here’s a quick tutorial on magnetizing your home page:

1. Develop a list of 10-20 benefits of each product and service. For example, a client of mine realized her audience didn’t just want to know how to get articles written, they wanted to know why should they write them?

So on the home page selling her article writing ebook, she started with a list of good reasons to write short articles to promote: For the serious marketer this ebook explains step by step how to promote your business, build a gigantic Opt-In List, increase your traffic, get qualified links, increase your page rank, grow your affiliate base, become a recognized expert, and collar more sales.

2. Be specific. List specific benefits. Describe how your customer will feel after buying your product. For example, after you buy my service of teeth whitening, you’ll look and feel 10 years younger without plastic surgery. Then post a picture of what your client looks like before and after the teeth whitening service. Let them see how happier and more confident they look with whiter teeth. Make your page magnetic with specific benefits.

3. Let the passion for your topic show in your marketing copy. Which arouses your interest more? “A 9-Step Power Plan to decimate and dominate the Consultant’s Marketplace” or “The 9-Step Plan to Become a Better Consultant.” “How to Convert More Buyers Into Customers” or “How to use the ‘FTP’ factor to pull amazing clickthrough rates that most marketers will only dream about!” Magnetize your web page with passion that creates desire and sales with your audience.

4. Develop the skill of writing headlines. Provocative titles will stir interest. Provocative statements capture our attention like a fish on a hook. They throw out the baited hook and reel a captive audience in every time. The shocking statement ‘Wives Who Don’t Want Sex’ even if they don’t have this problem will get the attention of the curious.

Use the Command statement for an immediate effect, ‘Become an Internet Millionaire!” Even if it’s a well worn claim, it still captures a large share of attention. Don’t forget the power of the simple ‘How To” information title. It alerts your audience that the information that follows will be simple and easy to digest. Capture the attention of your audience with a home page filled with magnetic headlines.

5. Give your links the power of benefits. We have added magnetic pulling power to our bulleted list, headlines, and titles. It’s all good. But there’s one more area that will give your home page even more pulling power. I got this tip from Allen Says’ “The War Report.” Many unseasoned site owners create links that say things like, “Get your FREE ebook here!” or “Sign-up for our FREE ezine!”

When first exposed to this tip, all I could say was, “Ouch!” I know my sites were filled with links like that. Perhaps we thought the magic word was FREE and people would automatically click on it and download. The truth is ‘Free ezine” tells our audiences nothing. Impart life to all your links with benefits. Those left over benefits and titles you developed earlier in this article. Review each link and pretend you have to get every visitor to click on it.

Don’t wait. If you wait you could be starting the next year without the explosive sales and traffic your site deserves. You have invested time and perhaps money into making your site the best it can be. Now, create a magnetic home page by giving your bulleted lists, headlines and links the power of benefits. Magnetize your home page and prosper!

web audio a how to boost website performance by adding web audio

Web Audio – How To Boost Website Performance By Adding Web Audio

It is clear that web audio and web video are taking the Internet by storm. Many webmasters are realizing that although it is very important to get more traffic to their websites that it is even more important to convert traffic into sales.

Many internet marketers agree that a conversion ratio, between website traffic and website sales, of between 1% and 3% seems to be the industry norm and that 2% is a good average ratio. What this means is that, on average, only 2 out of every 100 visitors will actually become a customer.

Webmasters often make the mistake of only focusing on ways to attract more traffic instead of also finding ways of converting more visitors into customers. However, more and more webmasters are realizing that website success is a two tier approach, namely:

1) Getting Traffic, and
2) Converting Traffic into sales.

In the case of paid advertising, very often website traffic can only be increased by spending more on advertising. It is common for the ratio between traffic and advertising to be 1:1, meaning that if you are currently spending USD 100 to get 500 website visitors you will need to spend USD 200 to get 1000 website visitors.

With the cost of paid advertising becoming more expensive, many webmasters are now looking for ways to rather increase the conversion ratio between traffic and sales instead of spending more money to attract more visitors.

A 2% traffic versus sales conversion ratio leaves a lot of room for improvement and by only increasing the ratio by 1% to 3% sales would in fact increase by 50%. Talk about powerful leverage, and without spending extra money!

Sounds great but seems like a daunting task? The advent of web audio and web video have given webmasters access to a great tool for breaking the silence of the world-wide-web.

Instead of visitors coming across a “silent movie” type of website (actually even worse than an old black-and-white silent movie) they can now be greeted by a warm and friendly voice that make the website seem a lot more human and customer friendly, thanks to web audio.

By using web audio, a webmaster can tell his visitors more about the site, the products or services being offered and let them know exactly what to do when they are ready to place an order.

It has also been proven that web audio can significantly increase ezine opt-in rates by simply explaining to visitors the benefits of signing up for a free newsletter in a couple of sentences.

Research have shown that by adding web audio, it is not uncommon for website performance to increase by up to 312% This is equal to increasing a 2% traffic versus sales conversion ratio to over 8% without spending any additional money on advertising.

A common concern for webmasters, that have no prior experience using web audio as a marketing tool, is that they think it is difficult to install web audio buttons on their web pages. In fact, nothing can be further away from the truth.

A good flash audio software program should allow you to add web audio to any web page in less than 3 minutes.

It is clear that web audio has had a dramatic impact on internet marketing and we can safely assume that it will continue to grow in importance as more and more webmasters realize the importance of converting more traffic to customers instead of only focusing on ways of getting more traffic.
