Video Introduction: How to Make Money Online

How long have you been in the Internet marketing game? Can you remember what it was like when you first started out? For me, it wasn’t too long ago that I was completely oblivious to this whole “make money online” world. I already had experience with offline businesses and I even had two ecommerce/online shop sites, but I was totally clueless about everything that relates to Internet marketing as we know it. I didn’t know the first thing about search engines, I didn’t know about blogging or WordPress, I didn’t know how to create a website or even a simple web-page, I didn’t know about hosting and domains and affiliate programs or anything like that.

As I was thinking abou this, I decided to make a video containing as much useful and essential information about making money online as possible, aimed at a complete beginner (basically me, a year ago). I wanted to keep it short and to the point (attention spans are short, these days), so there could only be a very limited amount of information in the video. I had to cut it down to what I believe are the most important things a newbie needs to hear.

Here’s the result and I’d love to know what you think about it:

It’s probably one of the least planned and least professionally made videos I’ve ever published, but the subject is one that’s very important to me and about wich I just needed to share some thoughts.

What it really comes down to is that I’m working on finding a way to bring good, solid marketing skills and authenticity, honesty and integrity together in my marketing messages.  Watch the video below to see exactly what I’m on about:

WP Syndicator Review

WP Syndicator is a WordPress plugin which, you guessed it, syndicates your content. What does that mean, in practice? The plugin takes an excerpt of a new post, adds a “read more” link and publishes that on several free blogging platforms like Blogger.com and tumblr.com. It also sends tweets to twitter and other micro-blogging platforms. The end-effect of this is that you can instantly build a bunch of backlinks to each new post you create and also get some decent click-through traffic (depending on how active and involved you are on twitter and the other micro-blogging services). This review features two videos detailing the plugin and one heck of a good reason why you should get it.

SEOLinkVine Review

Note: SEOLinkVine has now re-opened. The stats in the post have been updated to what they were on June 18, 2010.

SEOLinkVine is a recently launched, new article network run by Brad Callen. I have been testing this network since shortly before the official launch and by now, I have gathered enough data and gotten a good enough impression of the system for an initial review.

I am not going to go into great detail about what an article network is, if you want to know more about the basics of that, please check my blog networks post.

Alright, now let’s find out whether SEOLinkVine is worth it or not…

Guru Popcorn, Episode 2: Aargh, My Eyes!

Dear Internet marketers and marketing “Gurus”, please, please stop using the Video Boss formula for your pre-launch videos. I don’t know about you, but I just can’t take it anymore.

Case in point: The new Product Launch Formula videos by Jeff Walker.

Okay, I guess I know where this is coming from. It’s the same with the launches in general. Why does every marketer use the same kind of pre-launch process, the same kind of build-up, the same kind of hype generation? Because it works…

Curbing Your Enthusiasm About Offline Business Marketing

If you’re on any Internet marketing mailing lists, then you’ve almost certainly received at least one offer for an “Offline Gold” type of product. It seems that everyone’s promoting one of those, lately. The premise of these products can be summarized as follows: Find small to medium local businesses with crappy websites and offer them your services for doing some SEO, website optimization, setting up forms for lead-capture etc. In other words: Bring your online marketing skills offline and charge a premium fee for it.

Sounds like a great plan, right? I made a video in which I’m being a total spoil-sport talking about some of the real-life implications of starting a web design and optimization service like this. I also offer some useful advice for anyone who wants to give this method a try.
