Ever get stuck trying to figure out what to write about for your blog?
In 2014, the biggest buzz word phrase in online marketing was “Content Marketing”.
What is that? It’s the concept that creating timely content will help you promote your website and your business.
Why? Because Google searches constantly for fresh content and, if you don’t offer the high quality content they’re looking for, you’ll never improve your ranking (and lose out on a lot of visitors to your website).
Now, you have to remember it takes time to build your blog and rank on Google, but that’s OK. Everyone who’s successful […]
Do you feel like you just can’t seem to get any traction online when it comes to driving traffic or new visitors to your website?

You have so much to manage when building your business online that you are searching for ways to “automate” some of this work.
You probably did some research or heard about the possibility that you can automate blog post promotions – where upon publishing a blog post, you automatically have a Facebook post and Twitter tweet show up on your feed.
Yes, this can be done. The rumors are true. You can look into WordPress plugins such as Wordbooker and Twitter Updater which automate this notification to your social media sites, letting visitors know you have a new blog post.

New to blogging? Do you have this paranoia about what to say or how to start?
Step 1, check out this video:
Watch the video on YouTube, then come back for more! Link opens in a new window for convenience.
There should be a strategy for your blog. You want to have a general theme (mine is online business development for example) and all of your posts are related to that theme. It’s like journaling with a purpose.
Step 2, come up with a list of 50 blog topics
Spend 30 minutes and sit down with a blank sheet of paper. […]
Google+ (Plus) is a social network that is taking the Internet by storm. Google+ is Google’s version of Facebook. When this network first came out it felt like a bust. The features were different enough from Facebook that I think it just confused users. Also, everyone was grunting about “another social network to manage.”
However, more and more people are using this social media network for a variety of reasons so it is my suggestion that you get on the social network immediately if you’re not already on it.
Why You Need to Be on Google+
Have you ever searched under Google Images?
You’ll go to Google.com, click on the top Images tab, and enter your search phrase such as “balloons” and a slew of images come up.
But have you wondered how images get there? Or how you can get YOUR images listed under your industry top search phrases for better exposure?
Most website owners will take photos with a digital camera and upload those photos direct to their website as-is. The problem is that your camera will create a file name such as IMG_2D87364.jpg for that image.
The key is to change that file name to one with […]
Everyone needs an online platform. This is your sphere of influence online based on all of your touchpoints – your website, Facebook, networking, etc.
It’s challenging to build a business online and cut through the noise of hundreds of millions of websites online and be heard. You must have a strategy and a focused action plan to reach a global audience that resonates with your message and wants to follow you long-term.

Today I have a Gold Nugget for you!
I insist you go to Google Webmaster, login with your Google user/password and get your website signed up for free with this awesome software. I’ve used it for years and it is AMAZING!!
I can see how many links there are online to my website (the more people link to your website, the better your search engine rankings will be!), you can see your top keywords, what people are searching on, what your page rankings are.
Some of the content overlaps what Google Analytics will show you. But that’s ok. If […]
We’ve seen it time and time again where we type in a search phrase into Google and an old, outdated blog pops up. (Well, that won’t last anymore, click here to see why, but that’s the way it has been until now.) A blog that someone started, wrote a few posts and bailed. Why they don’t just tear down the site from the Internet altogether, I don’t know.
My sunny theory: I don’t think the blog owner got lazy, but rather, they didn’t know what to say! How many times have you thought, “I should write a blog post, […]
You’ve heard the buzz before, “You need SEO – Search Engine Optimization!” Most don’t know what that means – and that is OK. Today’s post is for you.
When you publish a new page or post, Google “spiders” (automated software) scan the page for “keywords”. These spiders are analyzing everything about that page to determine where to index that page within the billions of pages in the Google search engine. Once you’re in the habit of optimizing your blog posts (and pages), you will see major benefits and a dramatic increase in website traffic.
If you go to www.Google.com and […]
