How to Easily Turn Free Content into Traffic or Cash Fast

I bet you already knew this.

The two largest problems that online home businesses face in 2005 is creating traffic and creating a profit. It seems like everyone has great "ideas" about how to help you increase both your web site's traffic and profitability, but when you try these "ideas" yourself they don't seem to work as well as "they" said they would. Well, finally…. You're going to learn some simple tactics using free web site content to create either traffic or profit (your choice) that are GUARANTEED to work as long as the internet exists.

The reason that these simple tactics will work is because they're based on an even simpler formula. If you remember nothing else in this report remember this:

GOOD FREE CONTENT + LINKS = TRAFFIC or PROFIT

All too often the elegance of the above formula is devalued, but the truth is… the above formula IS the internet. When you search the internet for information you're using the above formula to find the information that you seek.

Here's what I mean, when you put a search query into one of the major search engine and press search you get a list of content and links. Here's how the above formula applies to the major search engines. You ONLY use the major search engines to find whatever it is that you are searching for because you TRUST the web sites that the major search engines bring you are the most relevant to what you're searching for (or in other words high quality free content). Because you view the content of the major search engines as valuable you click thru on the links. The reason major search engines are credible and seen as valuable by you is because you value the quality of the free content that they provide. Google and Yahoo make billions of dollars a year ONLY because they are able to give you the quality content that you seek. I don't mean to belabor the point, but I just want you to see the value of relevant free content.

The major search engine use complex mathematics to bring you relevant information to get your clicks - you, on the other hand, have to take the other route. You must provide the high quality content FIRST then give your links in order to get the clicks. The simplest way for you to do this is by picking a topic that you know a great deal about then find out if that information is something that will be of interest to others. If that content does hold some universal interest then you simply create an article or report based on that topic plus add a link to whatever you want at the bottom in your "resource box" and then distribute that content to those that would be interested in the information that you provide. At this point your content hungry audience will take care of the rest for you.

Let's break down the steps just so they're simple for you to implement…

Finding a Topic and Determining its Value:

Think about something that you know a great deal about and then brainstorm around that idea. After you have a few good ideas based on your brainstorming you'll want to determine whether or not there's an audience hungry for information based on your ideas. You do that by going to http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/suggestion/ and checking a few keywords based on your topic for traffic. If your topic seems to produce a good deal of traffic then you've found a hungry audience that's ready and waiting for your article or free report.

Creating the Article or Report:

Now for what you probably think is the hard part, but honestly writing an article or report based on something that you know a great deal about will not be much work at all. The hardest part will be organizing your ideas and getting yourself to actually sit down and start writing. After that the thoughts will just flow onto the page for you.

Here are some article writing guidelines and tips…

First: Determine what type of quality content you want to create.

•Tips: The simplest strategy is simply to write a report by simple gathering a few tips and then writing a few sentences about each of your proposed tips based on your topic. I'm sure you've seen these articles all over the internet. They generally follow the format "7 Tips to…." •Tutorial: Another Strategy is to write a tutorial to help your audience do something that you may know more about then they do. •Resources: The last strategy that I will provide to you here to help you get started is to create a report full of valuable resources that your audience may like to know about. This strategy is generally not one that I would recommend because it less personal than the other two described and will be less effective.

Second: Organize your content.

Now that you know what type of content you want to create take a few minutes to write out an outline. You want to have an opening paragraph that will describe what you plan to achieve with your article or report, and then a few body paragraphs to elaborate your major points of discussion.

Third: Create a strong headline.

In an effort to keep things simple, a title that is structured as a question or begins with "how to" generally pulls a better response than headlines that don't. If you're stuck on this point here is a great article to help you along http://www.perfect-home-based-business-opportunities.com/20050126091533.html.

Fourth: Flesh out your outline.

Now that you know what you're going to write about, all you have left to do is flesh out each point in your outline with a few sentences. Honestly, you can cheat at this point if you want by hiring a ghostwriter to flesh out your content at www.elance.com, but I would advice you to go ahead and write your article yourself. The truth is you'll probably enjoy doing it. So, don't be scared give it a try!

Last: Add Your All important link.

At the end of your article you get to add a link to whatever you want. If you want that link to refer your audience to your web site for personal site traffic then use it for that. If you want your link to refer your audience to an affiliate program then use your resource box link for that purpose. Immediate cash or site traffic it's all up to you!

How to Distribute your Content to Your Hungry Audience:

Now that you have your quality content ready for your audience you need multiple ways to distribute it to them. I contend that there is only one online method that is worth your effort so I will discuss it here.

Submit your Article to Article Content Directories

Article directories are the internet's free content hubs. These are sites that many web marketers use to pull free content for there audiences. These sites contain multiple categories - more than likely you will be able to find a suitable category to submit your article or report. Once you find the correct category simply submit your article.

These sites are truly great in my opinion because once you have submitted your content your done. Other webmaster will find your article and post it to there site or use it in there online newsletter. The result is this will expose your article to more webmasters and web publishers who will in turn use take your content. If you've done your homework and delivered an article to an audience that is hungry for your information the results can be truly amazing. Posting your article once can literally start a chain reaction that can lead to your article being posted on hundreds or even thousands of web sites which in turn means more free links and traffic to your desired site or affiliate program.

There are literally thousands of content directories online and the trend looks as if these types of site are going to be on the rise in 2005. Where should you submit your content? I say start with the www.goarticles.com, www.ideamarketers.com, and www.ezinearticles.com. You'll find more specific sub directories for your topic by doing a few search engine searches for your specific topic + "submit articles". As a general rule you will probably get the largest amount of traffic from the major article directories, but more is always better. The more places that display your content with your links the higher the probability that someone will find it and use it. A quick tip… as you find new directories keep a running list as this will come in handy for you as you get the hang of using free content for profit and traffic and start creating more articles and reports to give away.

Tips to Help You Help Your Audience Distribute Your Content <u>FASTER:</u>

Now your content is in front of your hungry audience and things are going well. You're getting traffic and or you're making a few affiliate sales. Here are a few tips to help you speed up the distribution of your content so you can get more traffic and more sales per article or report faster.

Tip 1: Let your audience know that your article or report is available for reprint.

I know you probably think this is too simple to really matter - your audience already knows that your content is available for free reprint because it's in a FREE content directory. Your right, but we have to think ahead… what about when your article is picked up by other webmasters and they post your content on there site? Will the new audience know that your article is freely available for reprint? Some will and some won't. To make sure that everyone knows that your content is available for free reprint no matter where it's posted you have to let them know. Just add a short blurb in your resources box that say that the article the reader is currently reading is available for free reprint. Now no matter where your article is posted there will be no question as to whether or not it is available for free reprint.

Another point on this tip, many who read your articles may not be in the mindset of seeking content to publish. By letting your readers know that they can freely republish your content you open an entirely new possibility to many of your reads that they had not considered (just a subtle behavioral psychology point to consider).

Tip 2: Show your audience how they can benefit by using your free content.

Money talks! Show your readers how they can make money by republishing your content and they will be much more likely to use it. How can your audience make money using your content? There are two simple ways to help others make money with your content; show them how to add PPC ads to your article so that when they post your article to there site they'll generate revenue from clicks-thrus or allow them to change any affiliate links in the article or report to there own so that they are able to profit from affiliate sales generated (if you do this I suggest that you use 2 tier affiliate programs so that you profit as well).

Tip 3: Make it as simple and easy as possible for others to use your content

The easier you make it for people to use your content the more likely it will be that they use it. Keep things simple! One thing I like to do to keep things simple is I keep a page on my web site that displays all of my free web site content for reprint so that my visitors can easily find ALL of my resources available for reprint in ONE place. On that page I add a copy and paste version of my resource box (which of course included a link to my free web site content page) so my visitors don't have to worry about doing anything more than copying and pasting what they want to use. To get e better idea of what I'm talking about check out my free web site content page here http://www.perfect-home-based-business-opportunities.com/free-web-site-content.html.

Conclusion: That's it…

If you want to profit from free content I have given you everything that you need to make a pretty penny online using free web site content the same way the major search engines do. Do you remember the formula I gave you before?

GOOD FREE CONTENT + LINKS = TRAFFIC or PROFIT

Remember this and you cannot fail!

However,

I have a confession to make…

What I have given you here is incomplete. There is no doubt that you can use the above information to create a good income from free content, but if you want to take your info publishing skills to the next level. If you want to create a large residual and growing income from your content publishing efforts you're going to need more help than I can give you here in this report. You're going to need proper guidance and best in industry info content publishing tools. So, as a final recommendation and to make this report truly complete I'll leave you with one final recommendation.

To make the above system complete, even easier to follow, and exponentially more profitable my final and strongest recommendation to you is software, tools, and instructions available by mailing to comlev1@getresponse.com

How To Get Free Advertising By Giving Away Online Content

Giving away content is a powerful way to get free advertising. For example, give other people permission to use your article on their web site or in their e-zine. The resource box at the end of your article acts as an ad. In return, you get free advertising. It's a win/win situation for both you and the people that need the extra content.

There are many forms of free content. It could be articles, reports, news stories, e-books, e-zines, e-mags, virtual e-mail courses, press releases, web books, etc.

You can take it a step further and make giving away content an even more powerful way to get free advertising. For example, give your free e-book to one person and allow them the rights to also give it away. Do you see what I'm leading up to? Let's say only 20 people download your e-book. Those 20 people may give away your e-book to 20 more people. That's a total of 400 people that have seen your ad in the e-book. And it just keeps multiplying!

If you keep producing free content over a long period of time it starts building up. Now, take all your free content and create an online directory. You can use your free content directory as a web site traffic generator. You can ask people to add the directory to their web site by linking to yours.

In conclusion, giving away content gives you three powerful ways to get free advertising. You can submit free content, allow other people to give away your free content, or have people link to your web site to give away the free content. My advice is to take it one step at a time and this system will bring traffic to your web site over and over for years to come.

How to add random RSS content to your site

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">Most savvy internet marketers will know how important it is to have fresh content added to their sites on a daily basis but the problem sometimes is to find the time and/or content. Adding an RSS feed is a good way to add fresh content to a site, but the problem again is that most of them only get updated on a weekly basis. </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">I have been wracking my brains trying to find a semi- automated way to do this to make my life a little bit easier. The search engines are always looking for fresh content - adding random RSS feeds seemed to be the answer! </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">So I did so some searches on the Internet to see what is available. A search for "add random content to site" sure enough brought up a bevy of links - most of which went to sites that wanted to sell me their products for hundreds of dollars! </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">Having been on the Internet for quite a while I know by now that most of the information that is on sale can most times be found with just a little bit of work. So I refined my searches somewhat and I found a gem that I would like to share with you for…. You guessed it - free! It will take a bit of work from your side to tweak the script a bit, but it's worth it, right? </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">First you will have to head over to: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/randomiframe.htm and copy the available java script. This displays a little content box 130x130. Go on, before they decide to start selling it! </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">Paste the script into your favourite editor and make the following changes: </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">To change it to display your content you will have to make the box a little bigger. To achieve that you have to change this piece of code: </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">width=130 height=130 </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">I have mine set to width=500 height=800 but you should change it to fit your content. Play around with it a bit and change the width or height where necessary. If you do not want a frame around your content, change this piece of code: </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">frameborder="1" to frameborder="0 </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">To display your content, you will have to create html pages for it. For now, just create a blank html page, I will show you later where to get the content for it. </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">As you can see, the script calls the pages like this: </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">randomcontent[0]="random1.htm" - change the "random" to whatever you want to call your created html page - e.g. successstory1.htm. </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">You can basically display unlimited pages with this script. To add more pages to display, just add: </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">e.g. randomcontent[4]="random5.htm", randomcontent[5]="random6.htm" etc. </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">You can now add the script to any page that you want to display random content on. </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">To get free rss content to rotate, head on over to http://www.goarticles.com They also have literally thousands of free articles that you can use for fresh content on your site. </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">Add the code for the rss scripts to the blank html pages that you have created (or an article if you so prefer) then upload all your pages to your server. Make sure that the page that you are calling them from (the page with the randomizer java script) and your content pages are in the same directory, otherwise you will have to change the path to the pages in the java script code! </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">If you would like to get more rss feeds, just do a search for "free rss feeds" on any of the search engines. </font>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">So, there you have it. Randomized rss content for your site without having to pay a cent. Enjoy your fresh content and the increased traffic! </font>

QuarkXpress Tips: How to Move Content Between Print and Web Layouts

Since its release in 1987, QuarkXpress had made an immediate impact to computer enthusiasts. QuarkXPress introduced precision typography, layout and color control to the desktop computer, and delivered those features to designers at a fraction of the cost of proprietary typesetting systems. Quark software programs had been widely utilized to create, design and manage their documents such as books, catalogs, brochures, packaging, newspapers, magazines and online materials.

At present, Quark maintains its industry leadership with a product line that ties together traditional print publishing with enterprise content management, personalization and tools for creating collaborative, cross-media workflows. Regarding enterprise content management, I have here a brief description about moving or copying content between print and web layouts. Here are the ways to achieve this.

First, change the layout medium type in the Layout Properties dialog box (Layout > Layout Properties). Next, drag items between projects. Then, copy items from one layout and paste them into the other. Drag items into a library, and then from the library into a layout. It is important to note that if you convert a box from one type of layout to another, some of that box's attributes may no longer apply. However, they are saved with the box. Say, a text box in a web layout is set to export in JPEG format. If you convert the layout to a print layout, the "export as JPEG" setting is ignored. But if you drag that box into a different web layout, it will still remember the "export as JPEG" setting.

When you transfer content from a print to a web layout, several cganges occur. The Convert to Graphic on Export check box is checked for all text boxes. This ensures that text in the print layout is displayed, whether or not the text styles can be formatted in an HTML text box. Linked text boxes on facing pages are displayed as separate text boxes on the same page in a Web layout. The first box of a spread of linked text boxes can be moved to a Web layout and it will contain the content from all the linked boxes in the spread. Tabs are displayed as spaces in a Web layout. Remember also that style sheet attributes that are not supported in HTML text boxes are marked with an asterisk in the Edit Style Sheets dialog box (Edit > Style Sheets).

There you have it, folks! You can now apply this simple tutorial in your next project using Quark Xpress. Enjoy what you're doing.

The 4-Fundamentals of Quality Content

The 4-Fundamentals of Quality Content

Quite often, the word 'quality' is over-used. A search on Google renders over 341 million results on the word 'quality.' Certain individuals use the word to describe time spent with much-loved ones. Others use it as an adjective to describe something as tangible as a phone card.

But what makes one phone card a quality calling card versus the next one? Is it the injection molding of the branded name in the phone card that defines its quality? Even more curious, what makes for quality web copy? Unlike, a phone card or time spent with cherished individuals, quality copy possesses a few discernible features:

 High impact information value  100 percent original copy  Key word driven  Customer-oriented-- relevant information

Recently, I endeavored to prove the theory by conducting a poll on a global network of professionals, Adrants.com. The poll asked participants what motivates their online buying behavior:

A. A stalwart brand identity B. Benefit driven copy C. Testimonials D. A Product Guarantee E. Other

Purposely, I left out price and substituted it with the word "other." By and large, (73 percent of the participants) of the survey showed that consumers were interested in all four aspects of the marketing message (branding, benefits, guarantees and testimonials). Only, 27 percent of the respondents chose other and added the comment "price." Thumbs-up, it demonstrates how quality content may outperform price.

Have you ever reached a site and found gibberish for content? The information appears as if an illiterate madman tried their hand at web copy. It's the type of site that does not contain either a relevant or specific message. The sole purpose is to impel the visitor to escape quickly with a click elsewhere. What are the 4 fundamentals of quality content?

Branding via original copy distinguishes one site from the next. It leaves a dent or impression that a business appears to be reputable. Moreover, it sets one site apart from the pack. As a result, the virtual store is deemed as a resource versus just another portal filled with plagiarized cut and pasted data. (Writing tip: To authenticate your company's brand, describe what makes your business different from your competition. Remember to detail your company's specialty or marketing niche.).

High impact information is critical because it builds the foundation of trust between the visitor and your web site. It demonstrates that you are the expert or professional source regarding the topic or industry - at hand. For example, let's say that you sell emergency weather equipment and gear on your site. The following fact would add relevancy to your site:

________________________________________________

FACT: Each year approximately, 800 tornadoes are reported across the United States. Over 1,500 injuries and 80 deaths are the end-result of the damaging destruction of tornadoes. Tornadoes have the capability of moving at a velocity of 250 miles per hour or more.

______________________________________________

Using a fact like the above example solves several purposes: 1) It creates a need for the visitor to learn more about your products. 2) It establishes you as the credible and reliable source for equipment products 3) Both visitors and search engines are sparked by your well-written content.

Key word driven copy - Without words, your prospects and target market are unable to find you when they run a search query. Since the rules of key word density are shifting all the time, it is best to maintain 4-5 key words on a web page (In the heading, top, center and end). Excessive use of key words can taint your results on Google. (Writing tip: Remember to cross-reference relevant and related words in your marketing communiqué. To analyze your site's keyword density visit www.keywordcounts.com).

Benefits, testimonials and relevant information -An online consumer's shopping experience is diminished when a visitor lands on a web site and is unable to figure out what the product or service is. Relevant copy provides information regarding a specific dilemma the prospect may be enduring. The copy offers a solution with explicit benefits - detailed in a succinct élan. (Writing tip: To encourage visitor stickiness add a benefit-driven bulleted list for fast browsing ease).

One common mistake, I see most people make in the promotions of their web sites are over promoting their accolades. People really don't care how your business started out in India. Customers want to be confident that a web site will deliver the products and services to quell their needs.

Quality content offers the reader a benefit or advantage to learn more about why they should opt-in, buy or use your products and services. Dissimilar to the subjectivity of family time and calling cards, quality content is easily identifiable. Most importantly, it is mandatory for any e-marketer who wants to automate their sales results.
