Defining Your Avatar, ever hear of this in Marketing Your Business? What the heck is a Avatar? While it may sound a bit confusing, Defining Your Avatar is gathering the details of your best customer. Knowing your customers habits, average age, favorite sites and all the other statistics can help you a great deal. This post will help you clear the air of confusion and give you the knowledge to help in Defining Your Avatar.

Who Is Your Avatar?

Defining Your Avatar - How To

Defining Your Avatar – How To

Every business that markets products have extensive data on their customers, so much that this data has become more valuable in this Internet Age. When you watch Sponge Bob with your kids, most every commercial is geared towards the ages that are most likely watching the show. So your sugary sweet breakfast cereal would be perfect to market during this show because that’s where your Avatar will be. You don’t market to the parents even though they are the ones buying the products, your Avatar will get the parents to purchase because your marketing speaks to them. Parents are less likely to buy the sugary cereal for themselves. How to identify your Avatar:

  • What does your best customer look like
  • What activities does your customer participate in
  • How old, how young, what’s the average age of your best customer
  • What online sites does your best customer visit the most
  • What other products does your best customer buy
  • What common problems does your best customer experience
  • Is your best customer married, divorced, single, male or female
  • Does your best customer have children, doesn’t want children
  • College educated, professional, executive, laborer, etc.

What Are Your Avatars Pains:

Defining-Your-Avatar - Be-A-Entrepreneur

Defining-Your-Avatar – Be-A-Entrepreneur

As a Entrepreneur your biggest accomplishment is solving problems for others. You identify what common issues your Avatar has and you market to that pain and provide the solution. Write down what the biggest pain points are for your market. Tons of pain points are out there, it just depends on your own particular niche and Defining Your Avatar. For example:

 

 

  1. Getting and keeping fit – Market the best solution to lose weight & keeping fit
  2. Unable To Pay The Bills – Market the means to make additional income & save more money
  3. Bad Job, bad boss – Market “How To” start their own business to no longer need a job
  4. Health Concerns – Market best practices to improve health and wellness

How Knowing Can Save Time & Money:

Defining Your Avatar-1

Defining Your Avatar-1

Once you have defined your Avatar, your marketing is more focused towards the people that need & want your services and or products. Take a moment and think about this, which is more profitable:

  1. Marketing a retirement system that creates more retirement income to people ages 40 – 60 or..
  2. Marketing the same system to people of average ages 20 – 40

You can see now the advantages of Defining Your Avatar, people in their twenties are on average not concerned in the least about retirement. On the other hand older people will give retirement issues greater thought and have a greater need for retirement solutions. Although a small percentage of those younger people may have given retirement some thought and shown interest it’s a super small group. Spending advertising dollars on people outside of your definitions would be a waste of not just money but also time.

Not The Last Step:

Don’t just stop with Defining Your Avatar and letting the information get stale, keep at it because things do change. Just last month I learned that 40 -45% of my niche likes to buy SUV’s. That’s another market I can test my advertising in for buyers of my products. You can do the same, more than anything you can teach this to your Team! Always be the student and learn more of your craft that is your business.

Home Blog – That ‘Ole Grey Matter ‘O Mine (the latest in money)

This week updates for gtguilloryblog.com, latest in comments and answers with a few bits & tips thrown in! Start pinching those pennies because something big is coming soon!

Did You Hear About The Latest Hack Attempts?

Hackers Coming

Hackers Coming

Home Business security is getting mucho attention these days. I’m just bracing for the latest big hack. The other day seen a news ticker that said a U.S. military site was hacked. Well I’m getting back-ups done plus I’m crossing my fingers too. I miss the days when large hacks weren’t even acknowledged in public, Sunspots anyone? Here’s the deal, Target, Apple’s Cloud Server, GetResponse, Spotify, AWeber, Bitly and the latest big one was Sony. Some still think it was a publicity stunt for Sony but aren’t large hacks becoming more common? You just can’t turn a blind eye to it and really believe that if you’re online you won’t be affected in some way. Did I mention the Sunspots? Hah!

Comments! You know one of the biggest drawbacks from having a “always on” brain like mine is that I really don’t remember everything I have written (booo!). Just so you know, maybe you haven’t been here much but this is how it works here. I try to answer every comment, I will even answer your emails to me (you can contact me at admin@glenntguillory.com) but I can’t reply to spam emails (see above). So if you see one of your comments here, please take a look at your link to see what I mean. I’m here to help but it’s a bit harder when I can’t email you from the link you used to comment. Also I tend to delete repeat comments, if you post the same comment word for word more than once it’s trash. I want your comments and will really try to help you solve an issue or two, so keep the original comments coming please. Hey I really do try to work in many as possible!

Here’s the latest Q & A:

gtguilloryblog reader comments

gtguilloryblog reader comments

Question: I love your platform and your writing has encouraged me to start my own blog! What do you recommend for someone new?

Answer: “Like New” or “Fresh Out The Box”? Two things I always repeat when I recommend anything online. 1. do your research and 2. Take action! I really think for new bloggers that getting your feet wet with a free blog is the way to go. You can make mistakes and create a number (your choice, just manage your time) different blogs until you get the feel of your biggest passion. Another consideration is to ask yourself this, “what do I want the result to be?” Do you want to make money by providing a great need, change the world, what? Make a plan A and a plan B starting from the end and work out the details in reverse! Let me know if that helps you!

Question: With your writing style why aren’t you writing a book or something?

Answer: Way to put the pressure on! Sometimes I think you guys and gals are collectively coming up with ways to get me to commit (hey, I’m not afraid of commitment! No really!). I have the opportunity but not the time right now, but maybe I can see it in the not too distant future! Maybe I’ll just start with another e-book and see how it goes.

Question: Where can I subscribe, where’s your RSS feed?

Answer: Yes I’m getting this more and more, see my first few sites I actually started as a sort of S.E.O. experiment. I wanted to teach myself and others the power of media buying and share my experiences. I really didn’t anticipate much response at all. So go check out http://www.glenntguillory.com or http://www.gtguilloryonline.com and sign up to the RSS feeds there.

Building your list is the single greatest resource for your business, what better way to build that list than with a great Capture/Lead Page?

Grey Matter Overload or Help, Make It Stop!

I must confess I’ve been afflicted by several Marketer Bugs! Fat fingeritis, Hot Shiny Button Syndrome and worst of all Information Overload! Heal thyself (I said heel)! Okay I don’t have any suggestions for Fat fingeritis but I can help with the other two!

Grey Matter Overload

Grey Matter Overload

Shiny Button Syndrome is what we all go through at some point (go ahead admit it) where everything that sounds great (this has gotta work!) we buy it. Before the dust has even settled on your download, the buy button is engaged again! Aaaaahhhh! The best solution for this is the Delete and Unsubscribe buttons to counter Shiny Button Syndrome. Want to know a secret? Most of those offers WON’T work anyway if your attention is divided towards all those other offers, ad copy and emails. So when you get the latest shiny object guaranteed for your business to EXPLODE, remember you have to give it your full attention to really see it work (or not) as promised. Isn’t great ad copy awesome! This same method works with Information Overload, well most of the time. Just keep in mind that learning new things requires your undivided attention but don’t try to do “18 simple modules!” in one or two days. Are you going to remember that stuff? Try to get as much value from new things as possible, even if it didn’t work well you can share that information with your own audience.

Latest Updates for gtguilloryblog.com are ongoing, be sure to check out my other sites. More to come soon, but until next time please keep coming back and I’ll keep more articles coming!

Thanks for your patience and thank you for visiting!

Home Blog – My Brain On,….Limited Time Only!

Ever get overwhelmed by your current “To Do” schedule? I have and my solutions are not exactly how I thought it would be but I did get a solution. Sharing a bit of what I’ve learned up to this point with my Franchise and what’s been happening with GenEnTech00 (parent company) lately. Oh yeah, some reader comments and answers too! Let’s get started!

What happened to my site?!

Hey! Where's My Site?

Hey! Where’s My Site?

You may find yourself at a point in your blogging or marketing life where you will have to say goodbye to some of your creations. I have been pushing my own limits and that tiny rubber-band broke, POW (yeah, gotta work on my sound effects)! You can no longer find my plug-in offer site GTGuilloryrapidmarketing, or the alternate blog genguilloryonline.com. There still floating out there somewhere in Internet space and maybe if your that curious (please get a life), you may still be able to see them. I wasn’t able to make time for them anymore, between media buys, maintaining 2 blogs and loading another site/blog. Something had to give (actually a lot of something), so for now the media buying will grind down to a trickle and I’ve freed up more time to devote to the Franchise (he keeps talking about that!). I just hope that those examples provided enough of the help I intended….farewell, you did me proud (the slow tear falling from one eye).

Information Overload!

To Do List Heaven - Sticky Notes

To Do List Heaven – Sticky Notes

If you have read more than a few of my articles you know I a big believer in “To Do” lists! I’ve got sticky notes all over the place! Maybe that’s not for you, or you just need something more organized before those that same the same living space go all Jakie Chan on you and your sticky’s? Sticky notes are my key to getting my tasks done but I was made aware of something that does the same thing and doesn’t need wall space! Have you ever heard of Simpleology.com? It’s basically a software that helps you to organize and meet your day to day, week to week..etc. Close to a virtual assistant to help you get things done and best of all, it’s free! There are some more advanced versions but you won’t need those right away. It even has a simple training program to get you familiar with how it works, go try Simpleology.com.

Share Some of That Franchise Stuff!

I Want My Retreat Too!

I Want My Retreat Too!

Training and more training, what did you expect? I’m getting some great behind the scenes stuff done and also found out that I missed out on a killer retreat! The big “marketer on the higher reality” (the creator and owner of the Franchise Biz, let’s call him Mothra, yes it was a giant moth but hey it’s what I came up with), invites everyone at every level to a retreat every year! You’re gonna love this, he invites everyone to this retreat to hear from some of the biggest names in the industry! You (that would be me, maybe you too later) get to also meet other franchise owners that have been having success! Awards are given, local dances and traditional shows, the whole nine! Here’s the kicker, you can bring your wife, husband, kids and all you have to do is take action with your Franchise and pay for the tickets getting you there and back! It’s gets even better, Mothra PAYS for everything else!!!! Food, 5 star hotel stay, drinks, activities, all on big Mothra’s dime! Get this, the one I didn’t know about last year was in Fiji! Can you picture that? Over here! Yes please! Hopefully when I open the doors to the Franchise you will get on board too, then you can meet me there! Come on, you know you want to!

Reader Comments & Quests

Comment: Find the latest news and updates right here!

Wouldn’t you know that’s an actual comment on one of the posts here! Made me think, what latest news and updates did I write about? Not sure but I’m here to help, (note to self, stop making these notes because I can’t find them later!). Ooookaaaay…here goes!

Have you heard the latest in hacking? Some well known marketers have been getting hacked! Not like you would first think either, these hackers are using these big names as bait to send out spam stuff! So I have a question for everyone, if you have an idea of how to prevent this please leave comments and suggestions about this please! I had an account hacked once and that nut is still out there somewhere (I still can’t talk about it, sniffles).

gtguilloryblog – comments & suggestions

Question: Is it hard to start up a blog and does it require a massive effort?

Answer: I’m going to stick to my guns and say “no”, it doesn’t take a Herculean effort or a tremendous amount of time and “know-how” to start up a blog. Do you feel a “but…” coming? It is ridiculously easy now to start up a free blog and write content that you have wanted to give the world! But…(ha you knew it was coming!), when you have had sites, other blogs etc…you already know much of what you want, how you want it delivered, etc. I’m not saying it’s hard but with each one more effort is required simply because your ability and knowledge has grown since the last site or blog you created.

Question: Where else can I find information like you have on your blog?

Answer: Hopefully nowhere besides gtguilloryonline! Yes I put a unique spin on things but I’m kinda partial to me (hey I’m cuddly too!). I can tell you about some of the sites I visit when I have the time….do a little research and find these sites: Tim Bonner (blogger), Traffic Generation Cafe (Anna H, highly recommended because she’s a coffee fiend like me), and of course the Big Bad Blogger John Chow. I do apologize to the other bloggers I follow for not mentioning you (really I DON’T have Alzheimer’s). Send me a rant in the form of a comment to one of the articles and I will make sure to mention I’m following your blog and you’re my best bud (really I will mention it if you want me to, lbnol).  Some of my best friends are bloggers!

An Excerpt From The Latest Newsletter – Find Your Why?

find your "why"

find your “why”

Do you set goals and reach them, are you finding success with your business? Do you know your “why”? Why are you in the business or seeking to start making money online? Is it to pay for that dream vacation? Maybe you just want to earn an extra income? Or you want a business of your own to replace the current job you have? What ever YOUR “why” is, you can accomplish those goals better by identifying and knowing what your own motivation is. When was the last time you set a goal and accomplished it without having a clear understanding of what it was and how to do it?

P.S. This is only part of the Newsletter, when the new site is opened up you can sign up and get benefits directly to your email! It’s getting closer now and the “Grand Opening” should be in April! Just need to spray that new car smell stuff all over before anyone walks in!

Thanks for your patience and thank you for visiting!

Make Money Blogging – “Free” Failure

You want traffic for your blog, sites, video’s on YouTube, offers etc. If getting the right eyeballs on your blog is not working with S.E.O. methods this will get you on track. Let’s call it Phase I of your Traffic Campaign, and know that once it starts you’re going to be hooked!

Many of you may know that I have another blog and a YouTube channel with a few videos promoting passive income and tips to help raise the blog Army with tips that actually work towards success for your business. Some such as my primary video channel shows the current amount of views, did you ever wonder how I got 3,000+ views for that video in 1 month?(I just looked again, it’s almost 4k now)

gtguilloryblog.com - logo

“Free” Not Free

GTGuilloryonline - SEO Free

GTGuilloryonline – SEO Free

We have all heard this, “Rank on the 1st page in minutes!” That’s never happened for me(takes me half the day just to write an article!), no matter the method, plug-in or any other steps available out there. Now this is not a knock on S.E.O., but I’m here to tell you it’s not free! Here’s the qualifier, free methods are not free because they take extensive amounts of your time! How do you get that time back? How many of the Top Sites have the S.E.O. attributes you were taught, can you even see them? Well they do have tons of backlinks and mentions all over the net, so what is it? It’s THE MAN keeping us down! Sorry I get carried away, but in a sense it’s true. If you have ranked sites before it’s not all that difficult to repeat, do you remember I ranked #1 for the negative keyword “Markieters” for a little while? S.E.O. free methods do work but what the heck, for new marketers it takes forever (seems that way right!). Markieters took almost not time and I didn’t have ANY links for it, but on the other hand genguilloryonline.com/blog has plenty links and I worked on the S.E.O. What is the result you ask? Let me put it this way, genguilloryonline averages about 4-6 views a day. That’s all S.E.O., slow and steady (an S.E.O. expert would have done better but let’s be real)! On the other hand I used paid methods with S.E.O. on gtguilloryblog and average about 50 views an hour, yipee yah! Have I opened your eyes to different possibilities now?

Shake-In, Not Stirred

gtguilloryblog.com Shake In

gtguilloryblog.com Shake In

Well I thought it was a cool title for this paragraph (meh!). Here’s what I need you to do BEFORE you experience the traffic explosion, get leads! Set up your funnel, have Opt-Ins for everything! You want to shake the customer tree and have new leads land into you pot or as we call it “your funnel”. Everything you do online should start with excitement first, sign up second and funnel third! Send traffic to your Opt-In before anything else! Send ALL traffic to your OPT-IN, the funnel and your efforts to keep your leads responsive does all the rest. How few ads or offers do you see where the marketer doesn’t add you to their list? YOU need to do the same. Every promotion needs to add leads to your list and sales to your profits.

Fire-Bad; Traffic Good!

gtguilloryblog.com - Fire Bad, Traffic Good

gtguilloryblog.com – Fire Bad, Traffic Good

Would you believe me if I told you that not all traffic is good traffic? Which would you rather have, one hundred leads that generate 2 sales or 1 great lead that buys from you for a lifetime? Yes I knew you would say that! So why did I even ask?

Traffic is not created equal and tons of traffic does not guard against not getting ANY profits at all, use this equation: Traffic is not Equal to Sales. So that would mean what? You don’t need a large list to have success! If you can find one responsive customer, nurture that relationship then find another, keep repeating! You will know once you’ve shaken the customer tree and found the hiding spot, then keep going back until you’ve emptied the tree (we call it scaling)! You can do that with paid traffic but only in SMALL doses. Small as in the smallest allowable buy or CPA (cost per action, you pay when leads click, like, etc.). This is where you only pay for the traffic when an action is completed, such as clicking on your link to a lander that sends those leads to your list (whoops, another hint). The other reason for the smallest attempts is it allows you to fail until you find the best source that works. Using $5 for an ad that didn’t get you leads is much easier to handle until you get it right than the $50 that didn’t get you anything. “Think about why you’re reading this for a moment….for most it’s because this is an answer to a problem you have experienced!” I’m part of YOUR conversation before you even knew the conversation existed. That’s exactly where ads come in, YOU need to make the conversation your leads have been dealing with in your niche! Be their “Ah ha” moment!

How you can get lots of Traffic

The best method I have used is to combine S.E.O. methods (remember not free, costs you time) with paid methods, such as ads. One of the best paid sources I use that’s relatively cheap is Co-Promote. What it does is bring together bloggers and site owners to promote each other, free and paid promotions! Just keep in mind you are promoting from your site or blog in an ad form that needs to appeal to both bloggers and their readers. Here’s one of mine to use as an example:

gtguilloryblog - Co-Promote Example

gtguilloryblog – Co-Promote Example

I have also used Facebook Ads and Boost’s, the Boost is pretty easy as you can make a post on your Fan Page and give it a boost with Facebook traffic. Just write a post that links to your newsletter sign up, landing page, etc. The key is to send leads to your funnel, you will have to add in searched keywords to get in front of traffic for your niche. This can get tricky and practice, testing and building your experience will help. Facebook actually provides much boring data for your results, so use them and compare (secret sauce alert). Run multiple ads or boosts with slight variations, you will notice that most of my videos feature attractive females right? I do that because an attractive female will actually generate more leads with men & women than not having a person at all or having a attractive guy would. If you have never done a Facebook Boost or ad before you should really go on the cheap and add all the highly searched keywords and do not limit age, preferences etc. Here’s the reason why: Once you get the results in some areas, your ad will have better responses among certain ages and groups! This data will help you hone in on where YOUR leads are, their average age and preferences! Where else can you get that?!

gtguilloryblog.com - Free Failure

gtguilloryblog.com – Free Failure

Some of you will also have a little “shock & awe” that I also used the Google monster for traffic. Shock because Google is very unfriendly to IM (Internet Marketing), ads. How did I make it work? Very simple, I kept trying! I was actually dropped by Google for 2 months without reason but got re-instated after 4 or 5 contacts and keeping my cool (that’s important!). Another work around you can use is to always be honest in your offers (no shady allowed), and use multiple cards and accounts if you can. Did you know that some gift cards you can load up and use just like a credit card? Brilliant! The biggest key I would propose to you is to never confuse Traffic or Clicks with sales, the secret sauce to your blog becoming or maintaining your primary income is to maximize every lead with a minimum cost! Here are some helpful links for you to maximize your S.E.O. for the best ways to make money online right now:

Best Ways To Make Money Online – Passive Income Ideas

Get started let’s make a passive income right now!

Find out how to make passive income work for your online business. Here you will find an outline for types of passive income, plus answer concerns of how you can start earning your own passive income. A description of what passive income is, what it can mean for your bottom line and how you can achieve these legitimate ways to make money online.

What is passive income:

I was reading another blog the other day (this is where you gasp with shock), but this guy was really fed up with so many claims about passive income. He says that it is super difficult to achieve a passive income, heck I’ve never claimed it was easy. Did I? What passive income is not: You may have heard so bad examples described as passive income. Real Estate properties claim to be passive income, but what happens when something breaks? Owning property is not passive income because:

  • You have to dedicate time and effort towards maintaining a property because when you don’t the costs will catch up with you at some point.
  • Think about the “night-mare renter” or even the unseen natural disaster that causes your insurance rates to skyrocket.
  • Property or real estate only provides passive income in one instance and that is when it can consistently put money in your pocket without taking it back out again.
Passive Income

Passive Income

Passive Income Streams –

Well all was not a waste because I enjoy a good rant and I did get some good information from his article. Did you know that Samuel Jackson (Jeri Curl partner to John Travolta in Pulp Fiction) has been in films that have grossed over 700 billion dollars! Because of that fact (eh, it’s estimated), he is one of the highest earners in Hollywood! What’s that got to do with passive income you might ask? Well when your films, books, music does HUGE numbers it’s anticipated that you will do similar numbers again and again. You or your agent will negotiate for an actual stake, slice, residuals, and marketing percentages. When you have a stake in a product that will have a large market like that, well payments will come for the rest of your life. Paul M. of Beatles fame built a huge financial empire with passive income. He bought the rights to most of the Beatles (except the ones M. Jackson beat him to), recordings and thousands of other musician’s hits. Then because HE owned those rights, he was paid money every time the music was used, re-recorded or played. These are called passive income streams, can you see why those who have one want more?

Passive Income Ideas –

Another example of passive income comes from the current U.S. President! Did you know that President Obama gets paid royalties on his books when there sold, reprinted etc.? He has earned substantial money every year from his books (six figures of it!). Here is one more, successful product creators with ownership can create a lifetime passive income because they receive royalties long as the product is still sought after by the market. Can you imagine if you had a killer app that millions loved to use on the internet? There once was an app called the “most annoying thing in the world”, that was developed sort of as a joke. This was the birth of “Crazy Frog” that became apps, videos, music, etc., a marketing dream! The creator became the latest dot com type millionaire at the time (Research time! See if you can find it). The best idea is this one, create a great product and it will provide for life. This is exactly what most marketers do, right now some of the most successful marketers are making passive income from apps!

Passive Income Definition –

Definition: Passive Income is pretty much the result of aggressive or sustained actions that result in a recurring income thereafter. Passive Income continues long after the initial “work” has been completed.   

Right now there are some different sources of passive income that are available for you to start earning right now. I do want you to keep in mind that most passive income ideas involve much time and effort but nothing ever gets done without taking action!

  1.    Niche Website/Blog; Most every successful site in the web today send multiple income streams to their owners. What do they have in common that you can put in place with a site of your own? They have a multitude of ads (Google pays for ads and the clicks on your site when installed). These sites earn a passive income (not the only income) solely from the high volume of traffic that visits and clicks on the ads.
  2. Blog and create you own digital product; Research John Chow’s Blog, this is where you want to be if you have a blog! When I grow up that’s what I want to be, a blogger of that caliber (we all do, who knew!). John has over 250k average readers and over 100k followers. If you look at his sites you will see ads all over the place, but a good portion of those are actually his! See once you exceed over a certain number of daily readers, people will start contacting you and things will happen. When you create great content that engages readers you will grow YOUR audience. That same audience will want offers of products made by you! Whatever your specialty is in ebook (kindle books work well), video download, applications, the ideas can be endless!
  3. Here is one way to create your own passive income; Partner up with a experienced marketer who has made and still makes tons of money. Get this top marketer to use his expertise to make sales to the leads you get. The more leads you get, more sales he can create for you! What could be easier for your own passive income? You do have to do actual work in getting leads but you get someone else who knows EXACTLY how to market those leads for profit.

Your success online is my goal,

Home Blog – GTGuilloryblog.com. My Brain On Blogging

This issue of the blog will address more reader comments (they just keep coming, veddy gud!). Also it’s right around the corner, so I will also address your online taxes! Yea tax time (hope you don’t believe that).

Reader Comments Answered:

  1. Question: Where do you get your info? It’s good!                                Answer: Thank you! My information on every article here comes from much research, then trail and error. I actually try things and stick with the best ways to make money online.
  2. Question: Where should I start and how do I get my own blog?                                                                                                Answer: It’s actually very easy to start your own blog, a bit easier than in the past. You gotta love competition! That’s why it’s so easy to go on GoDaddy.com or WordPress.com to start your own blog! There are many other choices too, just research, explore and pick the one that suits you. Word of caution though, being a marketer I know much about what is out there but you still learn everyday. You may see at some point advertising that “you can make money with your own blog”. Truth is new blogs are getting dropped like bad habits everyday (hey a boxing cliche!). Add to that millions of bloggers out there everyday for every niche you could ever imagine. I’m not trying to discourage you, but I want to give you a head start that many don’t get. Once you’ve found your calling (marketer/bloggers call it a niche), then YOU need to look at the competition to get ideas to improve upon! Learning how to make money from home is not difficult but you have to take action! People are attracted to great content so you want to create great things with your blog, over and over and over again. You will find this is one of the best ways to make money online!
  3. Question: What should I know about Hosting for my own site?                                                                                        Answer: To put it in plain terms (I thought I wrote about this somewhere?), Hosting is basically what holds and keeps your sites/blog/pages on the Internet. Every thing in the Internet is “hosted” in some way. Once you have a domain you will need Hosting such as GoDaddy.com, HostGator.com, BrainHost.com or even (gasp) WordPress.com! WordPress does the Hosting for your free blog, if you get a blog through WordPress.com (their are others but these are what I use). You can also get your own servers and host all of your own stuff (big time advertisers do this to “host” and control their many different ads, but competition is heating up there too).
  4. Question: Why don’t you use Empower Network for huge backlinks?                                                                         Answer: I don’t do MLM or cyclic systems at all, no offense but in my own experience these types of programs are not the best ways to make money online. See my review article on cyclic offers, besides I try to maintain an honest and detailed approach here so I don’t recommend anything that hasn’t worked for me.
  5. Question: Why don’t my comments show?                                                                                                                            Answer: If the email you have tied to your link or the one you have registered can not be verified, your comment will go straight to the spam folder. I go through the spam folder every other day and will sometimes “un-spam” a comment but that doesn’t always happen. I can not send a reply to you if your address can not be verified and I try to reply on all questions. Either a direct email reply to you or here in the blog comments review.
  6. Question: Where are your contact details?                                                                                                                         Answer: The contact details can be found on the “about” page, but since I’ve been asked this many times so I will also put it in the sidebar or plain sight some where else soon.

Finally I will address Taxes for your business since it’s that time of year for W-2’s and statements. When I started out, every network I joined as an affiliate and every “money making” site, service, etc., I signed up with my site name. My taxes were as an individual, but as you scale up into upward tax brackets consider taking steps tax wise for your business. Get a good tax preparer that is experienced (get some good recommendations for your area) for your business. Most of all UNDERSTAND everything that your preparer does and ask questions. It’s harder to know if someone is being honest with you for the unknown. The same applies to “how to make money from home”, doesn’t it? Yes!
