Tips on Building Sales through Blogs Read On »
By Tyler Dewitt April 6, 2008

Building a business online is quite simple which of course there is several channels to market through such as pay per click, SEO, contextual advertising, and you name it. There is also ways of generating sales by just having content around a certain service or your company all together, so let discuss that.

When you create content on a website it can be very valuable which granted not every piece of content you put on your website might not turn out to be a link bait, but with enough content sooner or later your going to start capturing links . The results of capturing links will be higher search engines rankings. When people find compelling content they will most generally link to it, bookmark it, show a friend, or spread it through social networks which then can turn into more links.

How should you build your content?

  1. Tips: Offering tips is a great way to build your subscriber list or even at the same time capturing more links. People love to check out websites that offer valuable tips for example if someone sees a title that says 101 ways to build a successful blog there going to check it out and you never know they might even spread it through social networks or they could even blog about it there self.
  2. Educational: Try to offer things that are educational, so in other words make sure your audience will benefit from what your writing, people love to to read stuff that will help them.
  3. Link Out: This would fall back under the category of offering educational information, so make sure you link out to other blogs that are offering valuable information therefore this will help with the awareness of your blog because when people see your linking to them they might link back and review your blog post.
  4. Use Images: Using images believe it or not will help your blog huge time it can give it more of a viral hook I mean the more creativity you use in marketing the better right? It only makes sense which granted don’t take me wrong I know of blogs that are plain English written, but have been very successful, but either way using images can surely help and make things look a lot better.

Above are just a few tips, but the idea is to keep writing and build that subscriber feed up. When you have built your subscriber list you have more leverage to work with therefore you can leverage your visitors around your products or even get them to link to certain parts of your website.

Building a blog takes time, so stay persistent and just keep writing. Out of all honesty thats where a lot of people go wrong at is they give up too soon or they quit right when there blog is starting to take off. Just give it time and try to keep everything educational, but at the same time keeping the reader in mind.

Where can you learn more about SEO at? Read On »
By Tyler Dewitt

I’m pretty burned out on writing and don’t really have much to write about today which I’ll continue to write of course, but I had a few ideas that crossed my head, so I figured I’d write about them.

One thing I wanted to write about is where you can find educational information on the web that can help you with your SEO / SEM campaigns. The reason I decided to pick this topic for is because I have had a quite of few clients ask me on where they can learn more about SEM / SEO.
What Blogs should you read?

  1. DeWitt’s Media – Yes of course you should read our blog on daily bases we cover numerous topics such as affiliate marketing, SEO, SEM, Social Media, and you name it.
  2. SEOMOZ – Rand’s Blog he has done a very good job at building his blog it has a unique character just like every other blog and there blog has grown a *lot* since I first started reading it which was awhile back, but they cover numerous topics. Most of the topics they cover are SEO related they don’t really get into PPC well a little bit, but not like they do SEO, but either way its a great blog that’s for sure.
  3. Search Engine Land – Search Engine Land covers a lot of news which they do offer some educational information to, but honestly its more based around news that is related to Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
  4. Super Affiliate Mindset – If you want to learn more about PPC (pay per click) and affiliates this is a must subscribe blog right here I have learned a lot from it.
  5. Search Engine Journal – SEJ is another news related blog, but then again it does cover numerous topics that are highly education such as link building techniques, content creation tips, blog building tips, and you name it.
  6. Matt Cutts – Now you have to subscribe to Matt’s blog I mean if not you’d be crazy every once and awhile he will offer some very good insight in the search world (FYI if you don’t know who Matt is he is ahead of the link spam team at Google).
  7. SEOBook – I almost forgot to list SEObook which is owned by Arron Wall who wrote the SEObook. Aaron covers numerous topics in the search world such as affiliates, PPC, and SEO.
  8. Jim Boykin – Jim who is CEO of webuildpages.com has a great blog well speaking he would write more he use to write all the time, but here lately he has not been writing, but every once and awhile he will offer some valuable insight that is related to link building.

There is a ton of SEO blogs out there, but the ones listed above are mainly the ones I read on day to day bases there a few other blogs I read to such as Google Adwords and etc, but you should check out the ones above. Keep in mind just from reading the blogs above I’m sure you will trail off into other direction such as finding more blogs that you might like.

Some people relate to other blogs better then what other people do, for example you might like SEOMOZ blog, but you like Search Engine Journal and vice versa just depends on what you click with. Just find a blog that you can relate to and participate in that community.

What Does Social Networking do for a business model? Read On »
By Tyler Dewitt March 26, 2008

The Web 2.0 has sprouted with blogs and blogs are great for numerous things such as sharing education information, communicating, and they can even be used to market your brand. Social networking is something that can really drive consumers to your brand because the best form of marketing sometimes or I should say is usually word of mouth which there again that depends.

If someone hits your website and you have a pretty good client list or at least one to provide. What this will do is build the consumers confidence in buying off you.  I mean it only makes sense right? Well I’d hope so, but lets get back to the social networking.

The thing is with social networking its a bit different the reason being is because when someone has referred you or talked about your brand highly through out groups of people then that builds major credibility towards your brand and gives it more trust because most generally when someone is talking about someones services there usually telling friends and even if there not at least you know you did your job and people is referring you.

The the thing in business if your good at what you do social networks will build and you can use blogs to build the community that will talk about you for example if you have 10,000 plus subscribers and there all know how good you are at what you do the chances of you being referred by people is very high and this is what blogs can do for you.
