MLM Website and Blog Tips.

Are you using your own website for your home business?

Are you recruiting through landing pages for your network marketing business?

What is your plan for a website or blog for your mlm efforts?

Developing Your Own Web Site, Social Media Pages, or Blog

 If you are going to market online, you need to have your own place that people can come
to learn about you, and learn about who you are. Your Network Marketing web site is one avenue, and if you are an affiliate for a product,  your affiliate landing pages is another. But you really need YOUR OWN site in order to brand you and also to focus on your home based business.

There are 3 ways that you can do this:

1) Your own web site that you develop.

This can be quite complicated, but below in this post is a powerful solution.

 2) Your own social media web pages and ecommerce stores.

You must have some way to create the “store” experience. There are many options and we recomend paypal as a great source to take money.

 3) Your own blog that you maintain.

We recommend you get a Blogger account or a WordPress.com account.

All 3 options are good, but we recommend # 2 and 3 as they are easier and simpler to
create and maintain.

You are given micro sites and landing pages as an affiliate partner, but some folks like their own website done by them. That is fine, but many do not know how to do that.

If you want to create your own website, then there are some sites that can help you do
that. Here is the one that we find very user friendly:

Website Wizard

Check it out and it is very user friendly for building a simple website for you and your
network marketing business. Make sure that you get one of the “pay for” packages as it will make all the difference in the world to your ease of business.

Here are some suggestions for your personal website if you choose to go that route:

 Domain registration and web hosting.

First you will have to choose a domain name to register and then arrange for web site
hosting. We recommned either Go Daddy or Name Cheap.

We have found 5 Keys to choosing the right domain name.

 1) Make it some kind of a “dot com” or one of the new “.co”

2) Make it relevant to what you want to brand.

3) Make it memorable and FEELS right.

4) NO Hyphens or long names.

5) Make it easy to spell so people do not get confused.

 Choosing a web host.

A web host is a service that stores, and hosts, your web site pages on its servers so others on the web can access your material.  Choosing a web host service is usually the most confusing thing an affiliate or webmaster has to do when setting up a web new site.

There are many cool webiste hosting places including Blue Host but here is what we recommend  to simplify if you are not much of a web design person:

Web Starts

These are some mlm business building tips if you plan on recruiting online with your mlm network marketing home based business.

MLM Training Secrets- Google Panda Updates Come Down to 5 Things…

mlm training panda updates

home business mlm training panda

 

Have you been hit in your MLM Home Business with the infamous Google Panda updates that hit in August 2011?

Has your traffic to your mlm blog or website been cut in half like may have?

I have been researching a LOT about these updates and how they have impacted the Home Business Profession online and I am stunned at some of what I have heard from people. One site which was on the front page of Google, all white hat stuff, followed all the rules, and did everything great- got hammered and is now on the second page. And there is NO reason that we can find for his site to be hammered like this.

 And it is all over the internet about sites losing 80% of their traffic. You read that right. 80% overnight.

Ok…if this has happened to your MLM Blog, what should you do honestly?

First off, do not panic. There are still tweaks coming from Google, thank God- if they are positive. But yet there are some things that you can do RIGHT NOW after researching that may make a difference in your blog’s SERPs.

Here are 5 things that you need to do with your mlm home business website or blog:

1. Get Rid of any and ALL Duplicate Content.

This is a HUGE change as any duplicate content will make Google SLAP you and your site. This was one of the biggest changes, and without getting too technical, if something is less than 80% original, then you may get penalized from that content.

Write ORIGINAL. Do NOT use “warmed over” article and posts. Even if your SEO pro says to. You will get hammered by Google for it. Duplicate Content = a lower ranking. Period.

2. Make sure that you have a TON of Fresh, Original Content that will make your site more appealing to the user.

Content is STILL King, but NOW it is FRESH ORIGINAL CONSTANT Content. Google wants to see a stream of original content that never ends and is HIGH QUALITY. Otherwise, it helps the user find what they are looking for. Many times a person will visit a site and not stay. This tells Google that the content may not be what they were looking for.

Make sure that you have FRESH daily content on your home business mlm blog and website. if you do not, your ranking could suffer.

3. Write SOLUTION FOCUSED Content.

Solve a problem and then tell them how to avoid it again. This will go far as far as getting your content in line with the new Panda regs. People are looking for SOMETHING when they come to your site, and that depends on the keywords they are searching for.  Make sure that you content and articles/posts HELP THEM FIND a Solution or answer.

What are they searching for? You can use the Google Keyword tool or wordtracker, or wordpot.com. But find out what people are seeking, and then give it to them.

4. Make sure that you have Quality Backlinks.

This is one of the most aggressive changes with Google as well as Bing and yahoo. QUALITY backlinks. If you have good backlinks and  they are part of your overall backlink strategy, then you should be fine. But if you have been using “backlink farms” and the like, then you may get slapped- HARD.

Strive for high page rank sites with anchor text. This is critical. If you can get these types of links- and a LOT of them-you should be fine.

5.  Make sure that you are SOCIAL FOCUSED and Social Friendly and Active.

Google wants social activity. They want to see your site on the social sites, being talked about, and engaged in the social media arena. You can do this by making sure that your posts are “liked” and “Plused” and “tweeted.” This is CRITICAL. If you have a lot of social activity and encourage that on your site, then you should be ok.

GO SOCIAL should be your new focus!  And after seeing all the carnage that the panda updates did, it is critical that you do this.

After many hours of research, talking to our tech as well as other SEO experts, these are the 5 Main Things that I believe will impact Home Business MLM business Search Engine Rankings in the future with Google as well as Bing and yahoo.

Alter what you will and then CHANGE what you must. You will be glad you did and I will continue to update what needs to be revealed that will impact the MLM Home business profession.

5 Things a Home Business Blog MUST have to Succeed

MLM Training Blog- 5 Things an MLM Training Blog MUST HAVE to Succeed

 

mlm training blog network marketing

mlm training blog

An MLM Training Blog is one of the most powerful things you can have today in your home business mlm. No one will ever argue that point.

An mlm training blog is a great calling card, a great way to build relationships online, as well as build trust and credibility. Many network marketing professionals have blogs they write on daily. Many have several blogs, like we do.

We right now I believe have 5 blogs that we work. I believe that an MLM training Blog is one of the most powerful tools for getting your message out there is.

But many home business professionals do not get much bang for their effort with their blog.

Why?

There are many reasons, but one of the most powerful reasons is that they are not using it correctly and do not have it structured correctly. There are many different free blog softwares out there, from blogger.com to wordpress.com. We use wordpress, but we use the templates from wordpress.org. We have found that it suits our needs better and also is more flexible with themes, and SEO purposes.

Are you using a FREE version of a blog? There are limitations if you have an MLM training blog. I would suggest if you do not know how to install a wordpress theme from wordpress.org- LEARN. There are many videos that can train you on youtube as well as wordpress.org site. It will mean more traffic to you in the long run as well as the short term if you structure it right.

There are 5 things an MLM Training Blog should have if you are ever going to go above the radar on google, bing, or yahoo. And I would suggest that you consider these when you are looking to either develop or change your mlm training blog.

Here are 5 Criticcal Elements of an MLM training Blog:

1. Powerful and UNIQUE Content that teaches WHAT and HOW.

An mlm training blog should contain posts that teach WHAT to do. This is imperative. But there needs to be a ‘One Two Punch.” You need to show the HOW as well– step by step. Prospects for your mlm training blog are not looking to be informed of news – but TAUGHT HOW to do something. Teach them what they are looking for and your traffic will increase dramatically.

2. Eye Appealing IMAGES and PICTURES.

I call it “Eyeball PULLING Eye Candy.” This alone will gret people to take notice of your blog. If you go to our PassionFire site, you will find a LOT of Eyeball Pulling Images that force you to look at it. Get some powerful eye catching images on your blog.

3. Accessible Content via Text and Videos.

Any mlm training blog should have writing but it is IMPERATIVE to have VIDEOS. People LOVE to watch training, not just read it. Make sure that you have video training and lots of it. Get a small computer video camera, and then start training on your laptop. Windows has a built in software for that.

4. Good Search Engine Optimization.

I have to admit- I LOVE SEO. I am not sure why- but i just love to learn it  and engage it. Our tech I have learned a lot from, but also reading and researching on the internet. You want the search engines to find your mlm training blog- make sure you have keywords in your title and article, as well as links that are pointing back to it from article directory sites and blog directories. Also make sure that you have submitted your blog to all the search engines. Use www.pingler.com for that.

5. A NEW POST DAILY.

One of the things google loves is NEW content DAILY. Write a post everyday on your MLM training blog. If you do you will ge tthe search engines attention as well as their love.

An MLM training blog has many uses, but I believe that it can ENLARGE your home business quickly. I would suggest that if you do not have an MLM training blog, GET ONE for your mlm network marketing home business.

MLM Training- The 4 Parts to Writing Eyeball PULLING Content

 

mlm network marketing

mlm home business secrets

 

I recently in my home business mlm education, ran across a 1932 article on advertising in an old magazine scanned and uploaded online on a website featuring old marketing material.

 It was amazing. I love the article and the feel of it. It was REAL and honest writing.

 I learned so much.

And it taught me something that I believe can revolutionize your MLM content writing for your network marketing business.

Have you ever read something in home business that you COULD NOT QUIT READING?

Did the content keep you so ENGAGED that you simply were forced to continue reading because of the flow of it?

Did that network marketing content PULL you in and keep you interested?

Odds are you were being PULLED by what I call “The 4 Eyeball PULLING Anchors” of writing content.

These 4 anchors were taught and applauded in the 1932 article I read, and I wanted to share them with you.

Again, I love reading about the marketing secrets of the past that ran successful businesses. It really can teach you the foundation of a lot of what and why we do what we do today.

If you are a content writer for your home business mlm, then you need to have a template that can use. This 4 part template must have been used back in the 30’s or even 20’s but it WORKS.

And I would advise for your home business to use this on blogging and article writing.

Here are the simple 4 Eyeball PULLING Anchors:

1. What I have for YOU.

This is a simple approach. What do you have for me? You answer that right off the bat.

BUT- make what you have for them a SOLUTION Driven WHAT.

“This is a powerful resource that will help you step by step learn how to get your body back in amazing shape no matter what shape you are in.”

2. What this means for you and how you GAIN from it.

This is about VALUE and BENEFITS. Make sure that you write it perfectly clear what the Value and benefits are to the reader.

“You will not only feel better and gain more energy, but you will not believe how amazing you will look in the mirror. Your body will look like a magazine cover.”

“Included in this powerful resource are 4 DVDs and nutritional education that will change your life and also outlook on life. It will help you look at life in a whole new way.”

3. Who YOU ARE.

Let them see you as a person, not some shadow behind a computer. Let them see you in a video, or some photos with your family they can RELATE TO and think, “This person is like me.”

If you get them  to see you are a REAL person like they are, you will find them coming back day after day to check out your content.

4. Here is what you DO Next.

Lead them to n action that will continue the flow of communication. Give them something to download. Give them something to watch. Give them something to read or listen to.

But whatever you do- KEEP THEM ENGAGED by leading them with an ACTION that contains VALUE and BENEFITS for them.

Give them something FREE. That seems to always work.

Use the 4 Eyeball PULLING Content Anchors when you write, and see if the do not increase your readership and results of your mlm home business success.

Do you often wonder why your home business blog is not converting like you need?

Does your blog get traffic but yet for whatever reason prospects do not seem to join you or even opt in?

Do you ever feel like your blog is just a desert with no water?

There are a lot of folks in network marketing that have this issue.

Home Business MLM blogs are what I have been focusing on for a while as many folks are struggling with their blogs.

The reason?

Weak Copy.

It does NOT MOVE the READER to DO ANYTHING or even invite them to come back.

Your copy, or what you write, needs to be STRONG and Powerful like a Magnet that PULLS people back to your blog.

Here are 3 Quick Secrets of good copy for home business blogs.

1. Write from THEIR perspective FIRST, yours second.

You need to look through your reader’s eyes, and not yours.

What are they lo0king for?

Relate to that in your writing and copy.

What are they struggling with?

Write in that focus and let them know you understand and you have been there as well.

Create a SOLUTION for them and make it easy to embrace and engage. Tell them WHY this solution will work and you have been where they are.

CONNECT with their pain, and that will be YOUR GAIN.

2. Tell a Story that they can say, “Hey- that is ME!”

The more CONNECTED a reader feels to you, the more they will relate and come back.

Drive the connection DEEP and tell a story that will move them motivate them, inspire them, change them.

They will want more of that you got, and they will be back.

3. Paint a Picture of the Life they COULD BE LIVING in vivid, Detailed, 3 dimensional colors.

When you write copy, make sure that you PLACE THE READER in the land of LARGE LIVING and in LIVING COLOR.

Talk DETAILS and describe the life that you can help them obtain.

“Can you imagine sitting on the beach, 90 degrees, smell of coconut oil, sound of the waves crashing, people laughing, music playing, suntan oil glistening, you are at total peace and loving life, and you just earned another $2000.00 dollars today? THAT is the life I want to talk to you about…”

Use these tips.

Fix your copy.

These are 3 quick Fixes for copy on your blog and your home business mlm.

MLM Training- 11 Blog Tips for Link Magnet Optimization

home business blogging mlm

home business blogging mlm

I

n a home business, How do you truly optimize your Link Building on your blog and create a destination that can become a viral monster in network marketing?

In the mlm blogging world, it is a lot about LINKING and who links to your website. This counts towards SEO and how the search engines rank your website. The more links you have , the better your website will appear to the search bots.

I think that it is hard to argue that Home business blogs are now part of the network marketing culture. It is imperative that you have a blog today or your MLM business. I cannot tell you how many times that someone has told me that their blog changed their whole business structure.

There is NO other option but having a blog,  if you are planning on succeeding into today’s marketplace. I have had one for 6 years and now I have multiple blogs for different reasons. I cannot imagine anyone in a home business not using this powerful tool.

You need to consider ramping up the blog you have as well.

That is the reason for this post.

I call it “Link Magnet Optimization.”

This is optimizing your blog for total recruiting and social media success. There are 11 quick tips that I am going to share that really has made a difference in our blog’s performance and success at converting visitors into becoming part of the PassionFire family.

What are these 11 Link Magnet Optimization Tips?

1. Enlarge and Enhance your linkability.

Simply, put yourself in the reader’s shoes. What are they LOOKING FOR? ”

SOLUTIONS.

Give it to them over and over again. Then continue to give them what they are looking for in content.

2. Make bookmarking easy.

 Make it VISIBLE and ASK THEM. It is that simple. You can use the Add This button. You may want to consider the Sociable Plugin if you have a WordPress blog.

3. Spotlight Those who Link Back to You and CONNECT.

 List blogs which link back to you via permalinks, trackbacks or recently linking blogs (like the Yahoo & Google blogs do). Email them and thank them for their link. Get to know them and build a home business relationship. They will send more links and multiply your message to their base.

4. Mobilize your Content.

Repurposing your content will increase the link magnetism. Take your blog post and turn it into a youtube video, article, podcast, mp3, ebook, and pdf report. This will explode links.

5. Be a “Go To” Resource and Feature other blog’s content.

Become an Authority site and let people think of YOU when they think of your niche. Share the content of others. Copyblogger does this. So does ChrisBrogan. It has made their sites HUGE.

You have not heard of them before in your home business efforts?

 Why do you think I just told you about them? Think RESOURCE integration, not just “All About ME Ego-ization.”

6. Respond to the folks that COMMENT as well as Contribute.

Spotlight the TRUE stars of your blog- the readers and contributors. Always respond to comments as well as people who share other resources. LINKS baby!

7. Jump in the Discussions on other blogs- and BUILD RELATIONSHIPS.

You have heard this before. But most do NOT do this for some reason. Jump in and comment on other people’s blogs. This wll provide links as well as building strong relationships that will multiply your message- and links-over time.

8. Target the Audience with Focused Content.

 PULL people’s eyeballs into your blog with content and solutions that are EXACTLY what your readers are seeking.

Find out what their problems are, and then tell them how to solve them.

9. Use http://pingler.com

This little website can get you all kinds of links over time. Are you using it? It submits your blog to over 90 directories and search engines.

10. Put your posts on www.knol.google.com

This is something most do not do. I get backlinks a lot from this one place as people click on the links in the post, and then link to it from the knol.

11. Become a Student of Writing Copy and Blogging- things change QUICKLY.

Keep up with the changes in the blogospere. Study copywriting to focus your home business message and make it more compelling. No one is better than Copyblogger.

Make sure that your blog is pumped up for Link Magnetism for your MLM Home Business.
