With The New Year Upon Us, Follow The Leader As I Build An SEO Site To Generate Free Traffic!

As an Internet Marketer since February 2009, I have done just about everything to generate leads to my web sites. I have decided that if I start now that I can be generating FREE traffic within 4 to 6 months.. My plan is simple and I invite anyone and everyone to Follow The Leader as I build out and provide a daily path that brings the results that everyone hears about all the time. Can you drive FREE SEO traffic to your web site? Yes you can , and WE are going to prove it.. Get ready to follow as well and make it happen !

If you have always wanted to find the FREE lead source talked about with SEO traffic but just don’t know where to begin, your not alone. Every Home Business needs to master this practice.

Driving Free traffic to a Home Business web site is a dream come true for most people that have decided on a new path of income and lifestyle change. If you are one of those people you know you have to invest money, make mistakes, invest more money and then hope something sticks. That is an experience I can share with you as well.. I have invested many financial resources in my Home Business, and while I have had some great results, I always look for ways to improve my knowledge base and thus increase my income potential and web site traffic.

My New Years commitment is to drive FREE traffic as a major lead source to my Home Business web site within 4 to 6 months. As I started this process, I realized that there is much to do and many pieces to put in place. Where does one start was my biggest concern. Build the website, Build a Blog, Keyword Research, Gain Knowledge? .. It is very involved and cab seem overwhelming to the normal Home Business startup !

I decided on reading as much as I could find about SEO and how to get started. I suggest you do the same. Take some great notes as you read and build an outline of the steps needed and things you need to read about. Having a site to build SEO traffic around is paramount and understanding that SEO revolves around Key Words and Content is critical.. Here are some best steps I have learned already to get my mission started….

1. Read as much as possible about SEO basics.. Understanding the basics well makes for a great foundation.. A simple search about SEO build out will provide this info. There are many SEO For Dummies books that read in normal language and you can always search for content on SEO startup.

2. Get a great book on SEO that you can use as a resource.. Nothing like going to the bathroom and enjoying some great SEO stuff.. Browsing topics will just make you aware of all of the ingredients needed for successful SEO marketing techniques. You must have a solid resource tool as you build out for your Home Business.

3. Realize there are a ton of people that make this work and you can too! Find those people and read about their efforts. You will be amazed that they are people just like you and me. If they can do it, so can you ! They started their first SEO project at some point and over time the skills and traffic build.

4. Start to write down your timeline and components. Think about things you can do yourself and if there are any that you need to pay for some help asses how much and when you can get it done. You do not have to build the best rocket ship from the start, you just need to start driving traffic and making it better every day.

5. Accept that you will need to write content every day, may videos as often as you can, post articles, work at back links, do Keyword research and commit time every day. Driving traffic to major keywords like Home Business requires a considerable amount of content and links.

This is a basic article addressing my agenda and how I plan to go about generating 50 to 100 leads a day FREE within six months that will drive my Home Business success.. My main driving force is not being controlled by any search engine PPC shift that makes me scramble for a new way to drive traffic. I accept that this process will take a while, but I must start now and the results will be in the pudding, Watch for more articles I will be posting about specific steps and results as I move through the process if accomplishing my goals.

We are going to establish the foundation that anyone can do SEO.. Feel free to communicate with me with feedback and suggestions..


The Most Costly Mistake For New Online Marketers!

Why is everyone is such a hurry to build an online business and have no understanding of the actual foundation for the business you are building. I see so many new online marketing people opting into a program, and first thing they do is scour the internet for things they can SPEND MONEY on to make the job easier. $50 here, $99 there and oh yes, there are those $30.00 a month charges as well.

If you have a marketing business that is making money then cool to invest in ways to improve your time management and productivity. If you are just starting, not so cool.. You need a foundation for your business that allows you to understand how the end customer thinks and reacts to your marketing efforts. You need to see what happens when you run an ad somewhere and the effect that ad has on your overall growth. If you toss that responsibility out to some program like something that would auto follow and build your Twitter following. You have learned nothing. More importantly you have spent precious investment money that could be used much wiser on other efforts of your business.

Think about starting a hot dog stand. You buy every auto feature you can to save you work, you get your supplies, and you have no idea how to interact with the people that come up to your stand. Selling hot dogs is about building relationships with customers that keep coming back.. Building an Online Marketing business is exactly the same thing.

Take some time and do it the old fashion way, get your Twitter followers and unfollow yourself. You will learn so much more about the things you need to do to understand and build a strong business. After six months, go get the program to help you save time. By then your efforts and education will have provided you with income to afford the extras. Good Luck With Your New Business!

What Is The Best Way To Handle The Question “What Product Do You Sell ?”

After marketing for a year, I have finally decided that what I sell doesn’t really matter. Every time someone would ask me that question I would go into all kind of gyrations trying to make sure that I said just the right thing. Was my conversation going to be too much money, was my description of the product going to help or hurt the conversation with my new perspective team member. Would I ask enough questions to understand the person on the other side of the call so that my response would be one that allowed them to feel good about what product I sell. Would they think the commissions were enough, too much, too little…. You get it what I am saying?

The the light bulb came on,, Thanks to Juan Walker who told me, “Charlie, just talk about you” .. So my entire game changed as I began to talk about Charlie, his life, his experiences, his goals, his interests !! And an amazing development has taken place. My video’s on my landing pages follow this plan… My content on my landing pages follow this plan, my conversations on the phone follow this plan.. And you know what?  People are starting to follow Charlie Montgomery because of me, not my product..

People want and need leadership and when you position yourself as the most important product you are selling to them they will all of a sudden get excited to be talking to someone that is a leader and wants to help like people get involved in their efforts.. Remember, you are your greatest product and people will spend more for you than any other offer you have.. Once they buy you, they will be much more excited about following the tools you use to monetize yourself! Hope this helps !! Charlie

Finding Time For You Has As Much Value As 24/7 At The Computer

Being an internet marketing wizard can be very demanding. I have found that it is entirely possible to fill every second of a 24 hour day with things to do that will make your online business stronger and more productive than it was the day before. I can also tell you that if you try and do it all you will burn out and your efforts will create more negative results than positive. No matter what has to be done today, I am watching golf.  I come up with some of my best ideas when I am away from the computer and just working on me. There is no way you can do everything, every day. If you start the day making sure your priorities are in order, you stand a great chance of getting the mission critical elements taken care of and then working on you, you most important employee in your business. Time away from the business can have just as much value as time working at the business. Try it….. I promise you will be more productive when you return !
