I am just recovering from information overload after attending a making money on the internet Cracking the Code workshop held by Nick James at the Park Inn, Heathrow on Saturday.
Nick James, in case you don’t already know, is an entrepreneur based in Berkshire, England. He made his fortune in Direct Marketing before making the transition to internet marketing for the past eight years.
Nick has set himself a challenge. He said people are always saying to him “Oh, it’s all right for you Nick, you’ve got the money and a huge mailing list. How can we do that when we are starting from scratch?”
Nick pointed out that he did start from nothing but to prove a point he has challenged himself to make at least $1000 a month every month within 6 months with no product of his own, no list, no JV promotion and working no more than one hour a day.

Link juice is not the latest fad in health drinks but you need it for the health of your blog or website. Without link juice your site is not going to be ranked by the search engines. Without traffic your site is dead.
So what is link juice?
Link juice, or link love as it is sometimes called, is a term that you have probably seen and heard all over the internet but do you know exactly what it means? I had an idea but wanted to find out more. With a bit of research I discovered that the term was first used by SEO consultant Greg Boser.

Many people think that blogging is fun and very easy and that you can make money on the web without much effort.
You may have read some eBooks where they tell you that all you have to do to make money online is to start blogging, add some AdSense code and promote some affiliate products in your posts and you will make money.
While it may appear like that when you look at some successful bloggers, let me tell you it doesn’t work quite like that. Most successful bloggers have put in some serious work to get their blogs making money for them.

Nouse is a word I have not heard nor used for a long time. It’s an old English word that means know how or skills. I saw it mentioned in a newsletter that I received and it gave me an idea for this title. It’s funny how these things happen. So what has it got to do with free traffic generation?
Well coach Alex set his students a competition to see who could drive the most traffic to his or her blog from 11th May to 7th June. When I visited the forum recently I saw a post by one of the students about the number of visitors he had to his blog and I was devastated.

Some of Alexs Jeffreys students are saying that outsourcing is too expensive when you are just starting out. Well, I just heard about this cool new website where you can hire people for $5.00 to do anything you want.
Well, anything within reason I guess although there is some weird stuff being offered! This looks like a great way to outsource stuff.

Well it’s been one hectic week. I’ve been visiting forums, Oil Rig hopping, writing articles for hubpages and this blog, tweeting, creating profiles on social networking and bookmarking sites, thinking about what to say when (nearly said “if ” there- must be positive!) I make a video, entered a gift in a giveaway, and I listened to Alex’s interview with Rich Schefren….
And that was just to drive traffic to this blog. I’ve also written an article for my detox blog and put out my weekly detox newsletter. Whew! My head hurts! How do people manage when they are active in more niches?

After the numerous Webinars on getting traffic to our sites it became clear that using social media is fast becoming one of the most popular with internet marketers. It’s a great way to build your brand and image as well as getting free traffic so I thought it would be a good idea to look at some of the social media tools for marketing.

Last week we had a Webinar every night about how to drive traffic to our websites and it became very clear that effective time management is the vital key to getting everything done. Alex gave us so many ways of driving traffic to our blogs for free that my head was spinning. Where do I start?
Let’s see if I can remember all the ways he mentioned of driving traffic to our blogs. There is good old article marketing, forum participation, blog commenting, press releases, video marketing, use of social networks like Twitter and FaceBook, bookmarking, guest blog posting, creating Hub pages or Squidoo lenses, blog linking and submitting to blog directories. I’m sure there are others that don’t spring to mind right now.

Well this week’s mentoring has been about getting free traffic to our blogs. The whole purpose of getting traffic is to get people to sign up to your lists so you can make money working online. There have been 5 Webinars over 5 consecutive evenings packed with the most amazing stuff ever. Talk about information overload. So much to do, I hardly know where to start. There are many many ways of driving traffic to your blog but as I go oil rig hopping around other student’s blogs it’s clear that if you are blogging for website traffic you have to brand yourself to be a successful blogger.

Some of the students are already standing out from the crowd with the way they write and are getting a lot of comments on their posts because of it. I feel deflated. Why can’t I write like that? My post seems so mundane by comparison. Will people be interested in what I have to say?
