How to overcome duplicate content problem

Duplicate content is an issue for website owners because it affects their ranking in Google.com. Duplicated content decreases a website’s relevancy value in the eyes of the search engines, therefore its ranking suffers as a result. Sometimes, it’s not that they want to use duplicate content but they are unaware that similar content is already out there on the internet.

Search engines like Google disapproves of duplicated content. Your website can be ignored or even be banned. That is why it is best for you to remove duplicate content as early as possible to avoid hassles in your website’s ranking.

Keep in mind that because there are millions of sites that can be found on the Internet, users usually don’t like seeing duplicate contents, be it unintentional or intentional. It affects your website’s credibility and authority in the eyes of the users.

The first strategy to remove duplicate content is to create unique articles. In this way your website can be promoted to other article based websites as well. Keep in mind that you don’t always need to write the unique articles yourself. You can hire research content writers to do it for you.

Just make sure that their main job is to create unique articles. The articles they write should not be similar to other articles on the internet and point out the keywords that you want to be optimized as well.

Search engines like Google have “spiders” that crawl the web regularly and they normally discount content that have similarities. Although there is no such thing as a duplicate penalty for Google, it is still a good idea to remove duplicate content especially if it is detected on your site.

Remember that your site’s content should have relevant information. Create unique articles that contain information that are high in standard and relevant to the masses to ensure that it is viewed favorably by the search engines.

Do not forget that Google can consider you a spammer or having a malicious intent if too many duplicated content appears on your site so be vigilant about what you publish.

To make it easier for you, there are tools available to help you remove duplicate content. These tools will indicate that you have a similar content to other websites especially in articles, page titles, URL’s and other elements that can be detected.

It will also help measure the keyword density and similar texts in your content. Although it will cost you more, it is a worthwhile investment since you are trying to optimize your site including its contents.

Always review your site’s content and check if search engine spiders will definitely accept and rank your content. You can use the robot.txt file to help you detect any issues.

Detect the issues as early as possible and remove duplicate content at once. This should be done without hesitation since it will compromise your rank in the search engines.

Always be updated since search engines like Google are always on the lookout for duplicate contents.

Niche Marketing Secrets

“I can’t sell information products online anymore. It’s saturated.”

Have you heard that said?

Actually, it’s common to hear that.

Yeah sure … It is somewhat true if you want to sell another ebook about sales copywriting and compete with the veteran copywriters!

But you know what — EVERYDAY, many people are laughing all the way to the bank from making sales of info-products.

You see, they are smart. They don’t sell another ‘Harry Potter’ or ‘How To Make Money’ ebook when they want to start their online info-product business. They sell info-products in a niche market.

You don’t believe me?

Just go to Clickbank.com.

You’ll find all kinds of info-products that you would never have imagined that people are selling and making money out of!

Here are a few examples:

* An ebook info-product about Ipod MP3 players
* An ebook on how to do magic tricks
* An ebook on how to improve golf swings
* An ebook on how to improve your volley ball game
* An ebook about tropical fish
* An ebook about training Boxer Dog

In a nutshell, I can give you 101 examples how these can all be home run, profitable products on the internet.

The market for info-products will never be saturated if you know how to sell in a niche market.

To be frank with you, I know it works because I have one of these sites that is making money for me while I sleep.

In fact, you may be surprised to find out that some of these sites in Clickbank are actually mine!

Why niche marketing?

Niche marketing can be very profitable because you won’t be competing with Internet gurus (They are busy with their own ‘How To’ niche) and your info-product can be highly ‘targeted’ to the prospects. For instance, someone who wants to start raising tropical fish at home, might order “Tropical Fish Secrets”, which is an ebook in Clickbank.

And the best part is, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to start an online niche business in less than a month!

Simple plan:

i. Get a niche info-product
ii. Start a website
iii. Drive traffic to it

Of course, there is more to it than that, but by just by doing that… you should be able to start making money in an online niche market.

Online Business Or Make Money Online?

Many people never realize that they have mixed up the Online Business and Make Money Online.

Online Businessis a real business like offline business. You need to take care your customers and business. There’s no such thing work for 3 days and rest for a month in the business. I believe your clients will run away if they know you’re not doing a real business. They’re just afraid that you get the money and disappear for a month and they can’t get any help. If you’re doing this, you’re going to out of the business soon.

Make Money Online? You might heard it many times and see many advertisement regarding this. Make Money Online is different. You don’t have any commitment.

You make some money, and disappeared. That’s how most people make money online. They promote something and make some money that enough for the vacation, they will rest for a month for holiday. There’s no right or wrong with this. Because you help other to get sales and you split the profit. They will handle the customer service and everything. So you can go on holiday for a month even doesn’t matter. (smile)

However, if you’re a freelancer. You cannot have the make money online habit. Freelancer has to take it as a business but at least a small business. When you get the project, make sure you have completed them and your client is satisfied before you leave.

I personally work with several freelancers for the last few months. Only 2 freelancers take it as a business and working seriously. The rest of them took it like a part time job. They online or reply your email when they’re happy. When the project comes to the deadline, they never reply your email until you warning them. (I hate the most)

They will give you bad reason why they’re not replying your email, like pc crash, emergency thing happen, not receive the email or sick. If it happen the first time, that’s ok – I can understand that. But it used to be like that. They happy, they reply your email after a few days. Email delivery just take a few seconds, but it end up like sending me a postal mail. Until they have no other reason to give, they just reply really sorry for the late reply. SUCK!

Even though they offer cheaper fee, I won’t be using them anymore in the future.

It’s the same case when you’re selling online. Your clients buying your product, but somehow they have problem with the product. They will contact you for help. Clients will expect you reply their email within 2 business days. If not, you will out of the business soon. What they’re thinking is, you’re not doing real business. Where have you been for the last 2 days? You get my money and went on holiday? (Just kidding!)

Usually when I buy a product online, I will try to contact their support first. If they’re in a real business, they will reply your email within 2 business days. Some company even respond within 24 hours. That’s cool and I feel safe!

What is best for Make Money Online?
1. Google Adsense, blogging to earn advertisement money.
2. Affiliate Marketing, promote other people product for a commission.

What is best for Online Business?
1. Selling products
2. Offer services like writing articles, designing graphic and etc.

You could agree or not with me the article above. It’s just my personal thought and experience but I hope it will give you some ideas of the internet marketing stuff and happening.

Personal Note:I know there are many grammar mistakes in my english and it has already known as common in some forum about my poor english. I admit that I’m not good at grammar but I just don’t want to get someone writing the post because it will not 100% stuff you will read. What you read here is truly written by me from my experience without polish by any writer. But of course, when come to selling product online, I will hire expert writer to polish all my salesletter and content. (smile)

Feel free to leave your comment and feedback.

Thank you!

How To Make Money From Passions

To make money online, many people jump right in before they are properly prepared. You know that to be a rocket scientist, a doctor, a brick layer, a construction worker, an office worker, a teacher there are prerequisites, things you must learn, before you can be successful, you don’t just jump right in unprepared.

The same applies to the Internet marketing industry even though there are unsavory people out there who’d have you believe it’s a “Walk in the Park” and requires no more than the belief that you can just do it.

And I’ll have to admit, it is a walk in the park compared to what you have to put up with in the working world punching a clock being a subordinate to someone who does not have your interests in mind, but there are still rules you have to follow and pitfalls you must avoid to actually make Internet marketing work for you.

Most people will not make a dime online and yet there are others who will make more in one month than most people make in a whole year. Why is that?

My answer begins with the age-old chicken or egg question, “what comes first the chicken or the egg”? Personally I vote for, well never mind, each argument you or I make comes back to the same old conclusion – I have no clue and I don’t think many of us do either.

But one thing I do have a clue about and know for sure is that to make money online you must first have Passion for the company products and/or service of any Internet business from which you expect to make money.

Passion in this sense simply means that you’ve researched and like the company and products or services. It is then that you translate that like (or Passion) into the education, excitement and work that usually accompany Passion.

I will have to say that many online entrepreneurs are so good at what they do that they ignore passion because they can sell anything. But I’m concerned about those of you who are not so knowledgeable at working an online business successfully.

Now, I’m not trying to make anyone believe that Passion is the only thing necessary. Because to be successful you must also have a good website, good marketing, widespread advertising, company support, effective keywords, and etc. Those things are often learned from the company you join – but sidestep Passion and you reduce your chances for success dramatically.

It therefore follows that, if you have no Passion for the company and the products and services provided by that company, again, you won’t attempt to do the work you are being taught.

Internet marketing work is typically not all that difficult or time consuming but it does take motivation caused by Passion to get you off and running with a sustained effort so that you won’t stumble.

You have a great resource in the Internet search engines to search about the Internet Marketing industry for business opportunities, USE IT!

Your research should uncover a company that you like and have confidence in. It should be solid, founded on great principles, and easy to understand with great products and services that are sell-able for which you can have Passion. If you don’t find it move on, You can find the right opportunity containing the attributes identified above.

Comments like, well, that one sounds good and the compensation plan is excellent so I guess I’ll start that business – does not sound like a decision based on anything near Passion. And remember when you hear that an Internet “guru” does that, don’t be tempted, because as I said earlier they are experienced and can sell just about anything, without being Passionate about the company products and services.

Note: By the way it’s your goal to get to the point where you can sell about anything online. That end skill and goal is a worthy one indeed.

Remember, there are other steps you must make before you step into Internet Marketing but if you don’t first find the right company products and services to be passionate about, all of those other steps may just cause you a lot of frustration instead of bringing you great success.

Not being Passionate about a company and products and services that has market proof that it will sell is a pitfall you simply must avoid.

The Aura of Legitimacy

(This article is written by me personally without proofreading and English is not my mother language, so you might find a lot grammar mistakes)

Business Strategy: The aura of legitimacy – Increasing Your Product Value At No Cost

Dealing with honesty and customer get what they pay for. (But they’re crazy to buy what you offer)

There are several different way to use this strategy. Although the method a bit different but it deliver the same result.

Example #1: Clothing Store

J&J selling their own design clothes and price range from $100-$200. When come to Sale Season, they can only give 10%-20% discount to all their clothes because their clothes are produced in high quality and by their own professional designer. They will make lost if they give 50%-70% discount.

But there’s a trick to give 50%-70% discount. They will buy other design clothes from other company and put their brand J&J on the clothes to claim as their own design. This is something like pay for private label. Consumer will never know this and won’t care about it because most consumers just want to buy the ‘brand’.

The ‘private label’ clothes are normal quality BUT they cannot sell below $100 because this will affect their own brand value. They also cannot sell for $100 above because the quality is not worth that much (If you’re selling overprice, this mean you’re cheating your customers). In order to make both balance, they decided to price the ‘private label’ clothes for $130 and give 60% discount. This way, they didn’t lower their brand value and also increase more sales.

Think about this, the consumers just can’t resist that the cloth price range from $100-$200 and now give 60% discount. So consumers will think this is a BEST DEAL.

This is a WIN-WIN business. The seller still remain their brand value, increase more sales and making good profits with the ‘private label’ product. The consumers are happy and they get what they’re paying for.

Example #2: Coffee

Big size and small size coffee are almost/ nearly the same costing for seller. The different is on the cup, it looks bigger. The rental, electrical and staffs all are fixed costing. Whether you have a good business or not, you still pay the same rental fee. If you can increase your sales, then you can lower your costing and increase profits.

When you order a small size coffee, the cashier will tell you that you can get the medium size by adding a dollar. Think about this, just one dollar you can get a bigger size. Great deal.

People who is doing restaurant business will know that adding extra won’t effect the costing. Use the bigger size of cup, adding extra coffee in it and it will look bigger a lot than the small size.

Same strategy also been using in Popcorn business. You buy a normal size of box popcorn for $8 and you get bigger size by adding extra $2 dollar, and the bigger box look bigger a lot than the small box. Seller make extra profits and buyer get better deal. This is also WIN-WIN deal.

The Easiest Method To Include An Up-sell

Amazon does it, EBAY does it, so why can’t you?

After all, up-selling is a technique employed by leading e-commerce sites to boost their sales and though you may be some light years away from them, this could be used by you effectively too. And though this is a technique, there is not a lot different from up-selling and selling by themselves!

There are many ways you could up-sell a product, but before we get into knowing the easiest method, know that an up-sell is a product you wish to sell immediately after he has bought the first one. Needless to say, the second product or the product to be up-sold has to be related to the first product bought by the customer.

To the point – The easiest method to up-sell is to work on the ‘checkout’ page!

What you can do with the Checkout Page?

I’m not asking you to redesign the entire webpage. Follow this process to uncover the easiest method to up-sell.

First, identify your webpage which you want to include the upsell. It could be your product page, salesletter page, your newsletter subscription page, your thank you page and so on.
 
Then just add an option for them to include MORE products before they ‘checkout’.

So if it’s a newsletter subscription page, ask them if they want to include a free trial offer to your other paid product before they click “Register” on your newsletter page.

If your page is a salesletter webpage, give them an option to include another of your product before they click the “Order Now” button.

Here’s another example – if your webpage is a shopping cart, you can always ‘upsell’ your prospects for them to add more quantity of the product that they’re buying.

The list goes on.

Here are some things you would like to watch out for while up-selling:

==>  The product you up-sell needs to be somewhat related to the product the customer bought. The closer the correlation, the better it is for you because you’ll get more sales.

==>  Write your up-selling ad as carefully and diligently as you would have designed your sales ad. Just the fact that the customer bought one product from you doesn’t mean he is sure to buy another!

==>  Up-sell but don’t push – Pushing is bad for any form of selling and the same applies in up-selling too. Inform the
customer about your product and leave the choice to him. Also, bear in mind that you’re adding more value to your customer by offering greater solutions to them in your upsell products.

The method to up-sell your product is not as tough as you would have thought it to be. Basically, if you’re not integrating any upsell in your sales funnel, you’re literally losing money.

It’ll cost you more time, effort and money to acquire a new customer compare to selling to an existing customer who already trust you and like your product.

Although the technicalities surrounding the deal make it a slightly tough nut to crack, but I can tell you that it’s worth your time to explore this powerful marketing strategy.

Storyteller Marketing: Scary Tactic

Have you heard of Storyteller Marketing?

Instead of keep on telling how good is your product why not use other way to sell your product? People use to say their product is the greatest and no other product can compare. Look at the advertisement around you and you will find out there are many company sell the same concept like this…

“We’re No.1 in this industry”
“The greatest product ever”
“The best program in Asia” 
and many more…

So who is the greatest and No. 1 actually? Everyone saying they’re No.1 or the greatest but who can proof that they’re actually the No.1 and the greatest?

Prospect already boring with this kind of marketing. I personally feel funny when I heard an old lady talk to a kitchen sales person in the morning market. She said “You guys always say we’re the best, so who is the best actually?”.

Whatever you say, make sure you do not set a trap for yourself to jump into it. (smile)

Let’s come back to Storyteller Marketing…

I saw a company applied this very well in a magazine advertisement. The company sell healthy cornflakes for breakfast. They advertised full page and it’s totally do not look like an advertisement but a news.

The advertisement start with telling the worst cases if you do not take your breakfast everyday. They also explain why everyone should take breakfast and the benefits. They use more on scary tactic in the story. Just like this — if you do not take breakfast often, your body will lose the XXX vitamin and you will sick.

So in the reader’s mind will float with this “Oh my god, I don’t want sick and I afraid to go to hospital and blah blah blah”. Reader will imagine their own scary scenario after reading the story. This is just like the ghost story. After listen to the ghost story, most girls will imagine a lot of funny scary scenario like maybe the ghost is hidding in the toilet or it’s outside the window….? (smile)

If your story can make the prospect create their own imagination — you WIN.

Their mind will hardcoded with your story and follow whatever you say. After telling the story, you must come out solution. That’s your product. So you will tell your prospect that this product will solve their problems. You see, you’re now telling the prospect that your product can solve their problems instead of telling them your product is the greatest and the No.1 brand.

How great and No.1 brand are nothing to do with your prospect. It’s none of their business so they will not care if your product is No.1 or No. 2 but they just care if your product can solve their problems.

Storyteller Marketing is one of the marketing method. Try this and let me know feedback!

Marketing: Boost Your Sales Target

Marketing

I love marketing.

You can do many things with marketing like advertising, event, party, flyer, cold call and etc.

Today, I want to share with you a very cool tactic to instantly boost your sales target within a short period of time. Let me start with offline marketing…

If you’re running a restaurant, you can sell membership card or voucher. That’s seem like just normal? Read this…

“Get Paid $100 Enjoy In My Restaurant”

It seems like a scam or hype. But it’s real. The tactic is this – You sell a membership card for $300 but you give $400 credit to your customer. This mean they get extra $100 for free. If you have 100 customers sign up to your membership card, then you will instantly have $30,000 for your company. Some people might think that this is too crazy to give away $100, of course you need to do the math if your business still make profit if you give out $100. I believe if your customer spend $400 in your restaurant, then you at least make 50% profit = $200, but you have already giveaway $100 to your customer, so your net profit will be $100. (Just work out the math)

Think about this, not all 100 customers will spend all the money within a month. Ask yourself, will you spend all $400 in the same restaurant within a month? Before the customers spend all the money in your restaurant, I believe your company will use that money to reinvest into other investment. There are many company not just doing business but also running investment at the same time like stock market, properties and etc.

When you got $30,000 for your company, and you just keep it in the bank, then this is just stupid. You have to reinvest the money to grow more money. Of course, don’t do the high risk investment.

I hope you see my point how to instantly boost up sales target. It’s just about ‘quantity’. You make less profit from each customer but you make more from all the customers.

Come from online industry…

If you’re selling digital product, you have pay nothing if extra 100 people buy your product. You don’t have to pay for printing cost, shipping and etc. So why not do a special promotion to combine several of your products into a big package for a special price?

Like, each of your product sell for $47. Now you pack 4 of them into a package and sell for just $67. This will instantly boost up your sales. That’s too crazy, if buy them separately, the price will be $188 but now for just $67. This tactic work and proven success. Of course, do not do this too often otherwise your customers will not feel special anymore.

Whether it’s online or offline, some of the tactic cannot use too often otherwise will not work in the future. You have to make your customers feel ‘special’ and only for limited time. Try this and let me know your feedback. Thank you!

2009: Internet Marketing Promotion Bonus

Last 3 days ago I received an email from my existing customer.

The email started with “Sean, what are your bonuses for MME4?”

Let me explain what is MME4, the full name is Marketing Main Event 4 created by Jeremy and Simon. Based on what I have read from the salesletter, it’s a turnkey system – ready made membership site. The membership sites are all ready to go. Cut in short, you’re buying “business-in-a-box”.

Okay, I’m not promoting MME4 today and I want to explain why I didn’t do promotion for JV Partners recently. It’s not their products not good but I have my own reason not promoting.

You see, there are more than 5 products about internet marketing release every single month. This is a never ending game and I don’t think you like to receive promotion after promotion from month to month.

I don’t want my subscribers get information overloaded and I even don’t want my subscribers just keep on reading marketing materials without taking action. If you have bought a marketing course and it contains 20 videos, 3 PDF books, 10 MP3 audio and etc. Tell me, how long you will finish all these information?

Based on my survey result, 8 out of 10 people never finish the course.

There are 3 common reasons –

1. They didn’t see the result after studying the course for 2 month
2. They were attract by other marketing course
3. They’re looking for magic button but not course

Hey, if you never take action then how do you see result? This is true, if you just STUDY without take action, then you’re not going to see anything in return. You’re not going to get result by buying the course but take action only.

If you have bought some courses previously and still haven’t get result. I suggest you stop buying any course or product and think carefully to find out your problems. You could be fall into one of the categories above. If you’re not interested to study the big course, then just take the small course that will just take you about 2 weeks to complete.

Some courses just have a small package like 5 videos, 2 PDF and 5 Mp3 where you can finish all the information within 2 weeks or a month. This way, you can start to take action after 2 weeks.

You might see some people invest many money into courses month after month and they still make a lot of money or get the result they want.

Are they genius? Absolutely NO.

I buy many many courses and books from time to time. Average 1 new book per month. The subjects include self improvement, business management, sales marketing, multi level marketing, internet marketing, advertising and etc.

Honestly, I never finish all the books and courses information. Only some books I like then I will read them until the end of the page. Like, Donald Trump “Think Bigs” book. The book interest me because it was their real life stories and experience.

The rest of the books and courses, I just grab the information I want. What does that mean?

Some books and courses have the information I want to learn or know about. So I will buy it and just learn THAT information I want. If the book chapter 4 has the information I want, then I will just read the chapter 4 and ignore the rest. If I need to finish ALL the books and courses information I have bought, then I don’t need to do business anymore and will take me many years to complete.

Have you notice that? If you keep on buying information and study all of them until the end, then you’re not going to get result. Just study what you need from now.

By the way, I just released a new information called The Amazing Copywriting System

If you’re looking to make real cash on the internet, selling your skill is one of the most easier to get started and bring you steady income. I personally offer graphic design service, copywriting and webmaster service.
