How Blogging Can Help Your Business.

Based on much testing and tweaking of my own blog, I have discovered that there are many websites offering free traffic.

And by just submitting your blogs to these web 2.0 sites, it helps you generate massive amounts of traffic to website easily. Just to let you know how big web 2.0 is, you can check out this website at

There are virtually hundreds of these web 2.0 sites indexed on this directory. All you have to do is to submit your content to any of these sites, which have a massive amount of 10,000 to even 100,000 or more viewers per day.

Getting your web presence online is vital. Web 2.0 allows you to do that much faster than before, with YouTube now being the most popular choice for many. With the tools which I use, you can use to broadcast videos to multiple Video sites.

To make your blog work for your business try doing the following whenyou add a new post:

1. Write a unique article for your blog and post it on your blog.
2. Post the same article onto 5 article directories:




3. Submit article to Socialmatic, Digg, Reddit & Stumbleupon or any of the social media sites that you like or frequent
4. Broadcast your article to RSS directories
5. Broadcast your article to mailing list
So this is what you should be doing every time when you post a post on your blog. It sure seems a lot of work to me, being a lazy person as I am.

However, with the tools available to me, I was able to do most of the task with AUTOMATION! That has saved me lots of time and effort. Using what I knew I was able to do these tasks faster and more effectively daily.

Let me know where I can assist you.

The Power of Blogs

Blog has come a long way since it started online in 1994, when it was used

to be called “weblog”. Weblog back then was just a simple diary page where

people could post about their daily lives. Soon after in 1997, the term

“weblog” was shortened to what we know today as blog.

Since I began blogging in 2006, there were about 55 Million blogs but as at

today in 2008, there are well over 150 Million blogs online and it’s growing at

an exponential rate!

Search engine loves blogs and that’s great news for many marketers out

there. I guess that is the reason why blogging is picking up speed. To create

a blog, you would require two things- a dedicated hosting service and a

domain name.

There are many different kinds of software on the marketplace where you

can easily create blog like Wordpress, Moveable Type, Blogger, Xanga or


Why You Must Use Wordpress

But to create profitable blogs, you must know that there are only two popular

platforms that many successful blogger use, and they are free-of-charge.

They are Wordpress and Blogger.

However, do not be confused about the Wordpress as the Wordpress that I

refer to here is the hosted Wordpress. They are NOT the same!!!Here is also another known fact, that almost all the professional bloggers that you see online uses Wordpress to host their blog.
8 Things to Avoid When Blogging

That is so much about what you should do when you are blogging. In this

section, you will learn what to avoid when you blog online.

#1 – Never Post Without First Proof Reading

You may say, “I was really gifted with great English”, but the least you can do

after spending time to create post is to spend a little more time to check the

grammar and spelling of your post content. A quick way is to use the Firefox

 browser to type your content as they have a built- in spell checker. You can also copy

 your content to Microsoft Words to check for grammatical error.

2 – Do Not Write If You Do Not Have Ideas What To Write

When posting, have a minimum word length about 250 words or more. And

do not post on your blog for the sake of posting. You must remember that

people spend their precious time reading your post so your job is to ensure

you give them valuable information so that they would come back for more.

A quick way to get more content for your blog would be to go to Google

Videos and grab a 40-minute video clip on your topic. By doing so, you do

not have to write at all, you just have to put a video on your blog.

 #3 – Do not Copy Content From Others

When posting content on your blog, please avoid using duplicate content or

copyright content from others. You would be in for trouble when they find out

you steals content from them.

However, what you can do is you can take ideas from others and paraphrase

them. You will be amazed that most top seller books you see today at

bookshops have similar content.

 #4 – Do Not Post Offensive Post

Never post any form of writing that would offend anyone online. This is

especially so if it is someone you know and dislike, online or offline. It is

never civil to show your readers an offensive habit.

#5 – Never Put Direct Referral On External Hyperlinks On The Same


More often than not, when people read your blog post, they will find

hyperlinks on your post. You should never allow these links to external sites

that are not yours to appear in your blog..

A Bad Example (Opens Links on Same Browser)

< a href=””>Gather Success</a>

A Good Example (Opens Link on New Browser)

< a href=”” target=”_blank”>Gather


#6 – Do Not Hard Sell In Your Blog Post

I see this happening many times on many blogs of others who try too hard to

sell something on their blogs. They kept explaining why a product X should

be bought and insisted it’s the best product out there.

Instead of doing hard selling on your blog, what you should do is to

persuade. A soft- sell approach will be more effective and also gives your

readers some solid content so that they can benefit from reading your blog

#7 – Do Not Go Off Topic On Your Blog

Writing in a blog can sometimes lead you into talking about almost anything

that comes to your mind. It’s very important, that whatever content which

comes out of your blog has to always be relevant to the topics on your blog.

You do not want to read a stock trading blog talking about cooking, do you?

#8 – Credibility Is Key In Blogging

Never lie to your readers especially when you are paid to write reviews, tell

your readers it’s a paid review.

Become a SUPER affiliate in NICHE Markets

How To Become A Super Affiliate In NicheMarkets

Over the past years, web hosting has grown bigger than it used to be. With more

companies getting into this business and finding the many benefits it can give

them, the demand for web hosting has never been higher. These seem to be the

trend of today.

39 million people have put up their very first websites online in the year 2005

alone. It is estimated that by 2008, the Internet sales industry will top the dollar

bank. And to think, majority of those sites will be offering different affiliate

programs for people to choose and participate into.

This only means one thing. It is easier now to find the right web host for your

application. The possibility of quality web hosting companies separating

themselves from the rest of the industry is anticipated. If this is done, the

unprofessional and incompetent ones will suffer.

Support will be the number one consideration for people when choosing a web

host. It will be obvious that traditional advertising will become less and less

effective. Most people would rather opt for the web host based on things that they

see and hear. Also based on the recommendations by those who have tried them

and have proved to be a successful.

This is a great opportunity for web hosting affiliates and resellers alike. There

would hundreds of web hosting and programs to choose from that the difficulty

in finding the right one for them is not a problem anymore.

How does one become a successful affiliate in the niche markets using web


If you think about it, everyone who needs a website needs a web hosting company

to host it for them. As of now, there is really no leading hosting industry so most

people choose hosts based from recommendations. Usually, they get it from the

ones that have already availed of a web hosting services.

With the many hosts offering affiliate programs, there is the tendency to find the

one which you think will work best for you. Think of the product you will be

promoting. Pattern them to the site and see if they are catering to the same things

as you are.

When you have been with one host for quite some time and seem not to be

making much despite all your effort, leave that one and look for another. There is

no use in trying to stick to one when you would be before off in another one.

Things will only have to get better from there because you already have been in

worst situations.

Try this out. If you are quite happy and satisfied with your web host, try to see if

they are offering an affiliate program you can participate on. Instead of you

paying them, why not make it the other way around; them paying you. The

process can be as easy as putting a small “powered by” or “hosted by” link at the

bottom of your page and you are already in an affiliate business.

Why choose paying for your for your web hosting when you do not have to? Try to

get paid by letting people know you like your web host.

Always remember that when choosing a web host, choose the one that is known

for its fantastic customer support. There are also many hosting affiliate

programs. Residual affiliate program is also being hosted. This is the program

wherein you get paid a percentage every month for a client that you refer. This

can allow you to have a steady source of income. With perseverance, you can even

be quite successful in this field.

There are a lot of niche markets out there just waiting for the right affiliate to

penetrate to them and make that dollars dream come true. Knowing which one to

get into is being confident enough of your potentials and the good results you will

be getting.

Web hosting is just one affiliate market you could try out and make some good

and continuous income. Just remember that to be successful on your endeavor

also means that time, effort and patience is needed.

Nobody has invented the perfect affiliate market yet. But some people do know

how to make it big in this kind of market. It is just knowing your kind of market

and making the earnings there.

Big Ticket Marketing to go on TV

BigValueDepot Going T-V!

We had 5 hour meeting last night with two VERY popular celebrities. I cannot go into detail on this until this airs but here is part of the "scoop." A SEVEN minute segment will go on the AIR (TELEVISION) introducing Big Value Depot. It will show case the listing process, the options etc. It will be a 7 MINUTE segment on a major Texas TV network. This segment will give us incredible exposure and we will be given PERMANENT visibility by this network both online and on television!

We will then use our rotator program to distribute NEW LISTING clients and NEW affiliates that may join to this team. The great part is this will not be a "ONE TIME SHOT." This will become a REGULAR promotion and combined with the radio ads we are running in January, we will increase our popularity even more. We have been given a tentative date as to when we will be filming this segment (First week of January). We may even display some of your web stores on the show! This is going to put BigValueDepot on the map once again and having this show on VIDEO and available online to show other people is going to make it even EASIER to promote!


We will be adding 4 NEW web store templates by next Wednesday. New colors, NEW choices! You will be able to change your web store template with the CLICK OF A BUTTON if you wish. We are also adding NEW & IMPROVED banners for your web stores that you can choose. The goal is to make these web stores even more attractive to people and give them even MORE options which makes their decision of "YES" an even easier one to make!


In January we will offer a "30 DAY FREE TRIAL" web store that will be priced at an ENTRY level of $14.95 per month. This will be the BASE LINE store with only 10 LISTINGS attached to it however it will get the people's "FEET WET" and give them a chance to experience store ownership. This will STILL pay out 50% MONTHLY commissions and this will be at a price point that ANYONE can afford. Imagine offering an eBay seller a store for .50cents per day with NO commission fee's etc and customization! Imagine being able to give them the store for 30 days at NO COST to them?

After watching this program grow and grow over yhe past year I do believe that it is the right time to get in ow. You receive free listings, your own web store and many more including training and great tools to make your bsiness grow.
