Facebook Twitter YouTube The Ultimate Social Media Trilogy


What do you get when you combine Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube? One hell of a social media marketing tool that you can use to promote your website, affiliate offers, your own products, etc. If you want people to know about what you can offer them, or have for them to buy you need to put it out there where the most people hang out and millions of people each day use Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Lets say you want to promote “brand-x traffic booster” lets say it’s a ClickBank item, well first off if you’ve tried it all the better now you can give an honest review. You can make a short video about the product, you can even use free software to do this. Screencast-O-Matic, Free Screencast, and Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), all can do a good job of this for you. Or you can fork out some cash and grab one of the paid ones, you can find them with a quick Google search. With programs like Camtasia by TechSmith you can get a trial for free or buy it for $199. In a few days I hope to be approved for the affiliate network they use and a few others so I can bring you the best software and reviews I can and hopefully get paid a little something, got to eat right.

Anyway make your review video and even write up a good little review article for your blog if you have one. Next you’ll want to get your video upload to YouTube. You’ll then want to write a good description about what the video is about, a good title, and be sure you have your affiliate link and the link to your own site in the description, this may get you some more traffic and may even result in a sale or two, more if you are lucky.

Next you’ll want to share that video and  on Facebook, Twitter, and even Google+. You’ll want the posts public so more people will see it. Ask your friends to help you out by liking your video on Facebook and Retweeting it, or +1ing it. The more social signals you get on your video the more traffic you should be getting on YouTube, and your own site.

Now make another video for another product, and then another and another. Try to make about seven reviews a week for the next couple weeks, with any luck in a few weeks you may start seeing some sales. If people like you and your work they may be willing to spend their money to help you out, and if your a jobless bum like me you’ll need all the help you can get, unless I get accepted to a truck-driving school.

(Didn’t get accepted for Truck-driving school for some reason, but I did get a job on the boats again so who needs a job making $30-60k driving trucks when I can make over $130k as a captain on a boat.)

Anyway if you want to lean more about meshing these social giants together to produce great results then check out the book below, it’s on Amazon. I know that I won’t make but a few cents if you buy it but hey you need cents to make dollars. Best of luck to you in whatever path you take.

Amazon links may not work I have to re apply for my account. Plus there are a lot of other social networks that you can use, you don’t have to focus on just video content either.

 

Searched the Internet for Secrets to Making Money With WordPress


In my search to find ways to the secrets of making money with WordPress I cam across a vast number of sites, more than I would ever care to read, there were 14,100,000 different listings so me being the good little researcher I am (cough) started at the top and the article was very well put together. I will list the sites I visited on down the page a little, however the first article was by Victor Pride titled The No Bullshit Guide to Making Money Online, written in 2011 and still at #1 on Google, that has to say something, while it didn’t cover WordPress it did cover making money online in general.

The article is great and quite long, the site Bold & Determined where the article is hosted may be a little rough and brash for some. It does have some good articles and some that are not so good well in my personal opinion that is, the author has some loyal readers that will fire back at those that express different ideas but it’s all cool that’s the great thing about the internet, you can take bits of information that works for you and use it, and you can leave the rest behind. Also if you don’t like or agree with something no bigger no one is making you read every last word. This site is mostly geared towards men, the empowerment of men, men’s health and success. There was an article about finding the right wife that I didn’t agree with but it did have some good points here and there, so most women won’t care for it very much.

Moving on I then traveled down the page and picked BforBlogging’s article on Top 10 Secrets to Writing Money Making Blog Posts which contains some good useful information for what I am trying to achieve here at the blog. It talks about post structure, SEO Friendly content, meaningful content even if its short, internal linking, and more.

My next stop was an article titled How do I Start a Blog and Make Money over at Tips and Tricks HQ. The article lays out step by step what you need to do to create a blog and then making money from it, there are no short cuts and it takes work and time but if you follow the steps. I personally think the site contains some great information and is well put together and even has an affiliate program that I’ll have to check into later, but the design needs some changes the white of the navigation just does not work very well.

The next place I landed looked like utter crap, the information was good, but not for me at this point in my life not until I start pulling in some traffic on this blog about 1000 visitors a month would be great. Anyway the article is titled $10,000 Per Day – The Secret To Making Big Money Online by John Chow, it’s rather short but talks mainly about selling higher ticket items and making more than you would selling $10 items or using Google AdSense, I can see the logic, but getting that one high ticket sale would be nightmare for me, I have a hard enough time giving away free information. For someone who makes so much money he sure skipped when it came to site design, but the money is in the funnels. Signup for the free eBook and it’ll take you to a click funnels page where they’ll collect your email address so they can send you other offers after all there is money in the list and funnels allow you to try to sell other products or different packages of the same product, anyway next.

I fell way on down the page and landed on my face at WPBlogging360.com on an article title Top 10 Ways to Make Money Online (Easily) which seems to be a good article, has good site design, and so on. While the article was good and the information solid the author got very lazy with the links they only linked to a couple of sites and didn’t bother linking to the rest but that’s just my opinion but it’s not a big deal just copy and paste the sites that interest you into Google or whatever search engine you use and it’ll do the rest.

I then went over and paid a visit to Make Money With Your WordPress Blog, it’s a website/blog that while it does contain some good information is in reality a sales page for an book on Amazon by the same name, so I’m sure that while the site has some good information it just does not give you the answers that are in the eBook. Most of the content has to do with affiliate marketing, which is the method I use, you’ll find very few products that I made my self here, if any because they are works in progress.

So after that pit stop I stumbled into a site called How to Make Honest Money Online and landed on a review of something called $7 Dollar Secrets. Yeah that page was all about an older program that may not work for everyone, go figure just like all the rest, but it was fairly well written and only contained a few mistakes. However the site itself contain some good information and has a few reviews for some affiliate products that can give you a heads-up before you spend your hard-earned money on them.

I then skipped over about four pages and found myself staring at Hellbound Blogger’s article about 10+ Interesting Ways How Porn Websites Make Money and couldn’t help but laugh, just glad I wasn’t drinking a glass of milk. I admit I’ve looked at porn sites in the past and never gave a second thought to all the different ways they make money, I even had a porn site at one time, only had a few sales, but that was my fault for not promoting it enough, heck I didn’t promote it at all. Anyway there are some really good pointers in this article if you want to start your own porn site or not.

Next I got tired of all the reading and a few sites were flagged in Microsoft Edge, so I took a brief break to rest my eyes and go get a drink, a came back and went over to an article called How To Make 6 Figures in a Year With No SEO hosted at https://feinternational.com/ which clam to be Professional Website Brokers.

Sense I like to travel and dream of broadening my travel experience I clicked on How To Start A Travel Blog: A Step By Step Guide over at Expert Vagabond. This site didn’t really go into great detail about making money online but in starting a travel site, you could make a good bit of money with the right promotions and right packages. You could offer to arrange travel for people for a slightly higher fee than it would cost them to do it themselves or have a shop on your site the sells travel related products. The earning potential could be great over time, can’t compete with the larger travel sites, you don’t have to think locally or regionally, maybe just your own state but those are my ideas you can’t use them lol.

Well that’s about it, the deeper I went the less and less stuff I found that was even remotely related to my keywords, oh well I’ll do another search later and see where that leads me. Hopefully not down a dark alley way with creepy perverts and crooked folks. Anyway enjoy and let me know what your personal favorite site about making money online using WordPress and I will review it and may even add it to the list.

Easy Way To Display Amazon Affiliate Products Horizontally


So you like to add Amazon products in your WordPress blog posts but they keep running down your page vertically. Well you can fix this rather easily by inclosing the Amazon code in a table, yep a simple HTML table will do the trick, the only problem is the whitespace below it but that is in the Amazon code you could remove that too but it takes some playing around with the div tags and if your listing a few products then you may want to just leave that be it’ll save you some time.

Anyway here is the simple HTML tables that I use, nothing fancy but they do the trick. You can get fancy and change the border size or add color to the cells, or even a title bar like (books) (movies), you get the idea. I used the HTML Encoder to encode and display the code because WordPress won’t let you display raw code it want to interpret it, which is fine but the need to make a method to display raw code without jumping through hoops.

<table border=”0″>
<tr>
<td></td>
<td></td>
<td></td>
<td></td>
</tr>
</table>

It’ rather simple, all you do is paste it in Notepad or whatever your favorite pure text editor is, hop over to Amazon grab the code for the item you want to display and then paste it in between the td tags. You can also add another row by adding another set of tr tags with the td tags below the closing tr tag. Confused I don’t blame you.

You’ll need an associates account to get the code and profit from it. Easy enough to get, plenty of information on how to set that up online. That about covers it but if you still need a little help you can follow along with the short video. Uh video will come later, I will have to remake it, had too many interruptions AC kicking off and on, phone ringing, people coming in and talking without knocking etc. Or I just may do a slide show using screen shots that would cut out the background noise. Oh well screen shots will have to do.

Oh good grief come on why can’t I upload the rest of my images without a freaking error lol. Just my luck not even a cloud in the sky to blame the crappy Internet on just Dish Network or WildBlue whoever powers this crappy Internet need a kick in the rear. Guess I will just have to go to McDonalds to steel their Wi-Fi lol.

How To Get Easy Content For Your Blogs


So you have this new blog and your sitting there scratching your head trying to think of what to blog about, you get an idea for a topic but it’ll take you hours to research it all. What to do? Well there is a method called content curation, simply put it is the collection of information on any given subject organized into a way that makes sense along with some of your own thoughts on the subject.

This is alright and chances are it’ll be original content for your blog you just need to make sure you give credit where credit is due. So how long is all of this going to take? Hours my friend hours spent search Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, Wikis, YouTube, and a dozen other sources. Is there a faster way to get this done so I can get content on my site faster? Yes there are quite a few programs out there that can search many sources for information on any subject, some are free and others are paid.

Sense I’m in this to attempt to turn a little profit, I’ll recommend a paid one, it’ll get the job done fairly quickly like a couple minutes. Of course you’ll still have to put the information into a post in a why that makes sense and add in some of your own content, you don’t have to add much, Sometimes all you need to add is a short introduction and maybe a description of different parts, or maybe a heading here and there to break things up a bit. Toss in some original hand drawings to really make it unique.

So what is this piece of software that I recommend? CurationSoft 3.0! Yeah I’ll give you the name and yes you can just search it and buy it yourself but that won’t change the price any. You could also click my link and buy it and its still not going to change the price. Just be careful of the up sales, they can get rather expensive. I’m not sure but they may offer some down-sales if you don’t accept the first offer, many affiliate do this so they still make some extra money off of the sale.

Personally it does not matter to me if you buy all their extras, its not like I’m going to get much if any of the up sales. Anyway below in a good bit of information about CurationSoft 3.0 along with the link to the website and yes it’s a ClickBank affiliate link. Matter of fact below here is the whole post I did about it awhile back, not much has changed just the focus of this site.


Do you need great content for you blogs, social networks, and such? Well you could spend hours and hours writing each and every post or you could use a content curation software to poll relevent information from a number of different sources to creat masterful content that many may deem ready to post.
While you can post the content created via CurationSoft 3.0 I would suggest you spend another five or ten minutes reading over it and make some personal changes that would make it even more different than any other article posted. While CurationSoft 3.0 cites its sources and put the required copyright information in its genrated posts you can still add some of your own thoughts within the article.
What can CurationSoft 3.0 do for you?

CurationSoft works on just about any platform including like Blogger, WordPress, Google+, Drupal, Joomla, Facebook, Tumblr, and others.

Still A Good Idea to Edit

You can even change the order of things so they look better on your blogs or where-ever your posting
