The Best Strategies for Link Building

The Best Strategies for Link Building When you first start internet marketing, you might decide to check out some of the big marketing forums like BHW (Black Hat World) and Warrior Forum. These are sites where internet marketers can hang out, share tips and buy and sell services. The problem, is that the quality of these services on offer varies greatly. And in particular, you need to be very careful when choosing ‘link building services’. The Problem With ‘Traditional Link Building’ That’s because an awful lot of these services will involve a PBN and spun content. So what does this mean? A PBN is a ‘Private Blog Network’. That means that a single owner is in charge of all the different blogs and they have linked them to each other in order to create artificial authority. The content on these blogs meanwhile is not original but is rather reused content that has been ‘spun’ (meaning that the words have been swapped out for synonyms) in order to trick Google into thinking that it’s brand new. As you may have guessed already, both of these practices are very much frowned upon by Google and if you get caught doing either, then you’ll be penalized. Moreover, if you get caught associating with either, then you’ll get penalized. Best case scenario, no one gets caught but the links still aren’t anywhere near...

While you’re probably not going to need anything insanely powerful, what will help is to have a computer that you actually enjoy working on and that you look forward to using. To that end, getting something a big newer with a nice 4K resolution can make a big difference to your workflow. In terms of specs, you’ll want at least a newer i5 processor (2GHz+), 4-8GB of RAM for multitasking, a fair amount of storage space, an SSD for quick booting and perhaps a basic graphics card for futureproofing. If you plan on editing video, then you can upgrade that graphics card to a ‘must have’. It’s also worth getting something with a touchscreen.

How to Use Incentives the Right Way to Build a Killer Mailing List

If you want to grow your audience, then it is crucial to add a mailing list to your marketing practices. Mailing lists allow you to collect emails and that in turn means that you can more easily reach your audience with new products or offers. This is a great way to turn cold leads into warm leads and that’s imperative if you plan on selling something. The only slight problem is that people, on the whole, don’t tend to like giving out their contact details. They know that this is going to mean they receive marketing messages and very often, that will be considered to be spam. So how can you persuade your visitors to change their mind and ease up? What is an Incentive? One common practice is to get around this problem by offering an incentive. That means providing some kind of free download in exchange for joining the mailing list in many cases – but you need to be careful how you go about this. For example, let’s say that you have a fitness brand and you’re trying to collect emails. Very often you might then do this by offering a free ‘report’ or even a free ebook for every new person who signs up. People love getting free things and if you tell them how your product can help them to lose weight, build muscle...
