Work From Home – The Best Domain

So you have been considering doing this for months, but today, you made the final decision to take action to work from home. You have a good idea of the home business which you would like to launch, however, you still have not come up with a domain name for your website. My advice is that you put a lot of thought into your domain name. We will discuss this further below.

In the your Internet age, there has been a good amount of debate on which factors are the most important when determining what domain to purchase. However, the consensus is that choosing a domain name should be deeply tied to the business plan and the vision of your home business. A domain can be chosen for it’s advantages in search engine placement, your company’s brand, or as a description of a general term. You will need to take into account a domain name’s length, pronunciation, memorability, and if the name is taken in other similar forms or extensions. For example, if one registers yourdomain.net, but the yourdomain.com is taken and developed, creating a brand for yourdomain.net would be very dangerous, and might end up being confused for its .com counterpart.

Having said all of that, we will move on to discuss three of the prevailing justifications utilized when selecting a domain.

1) Domains For Search Engine Placement

Not surprisingly, this strategy involves selecting a domain name which contains a keyword. Having this keyword in the domain will make it easier for your website to rank for the keyword in the search engines. The problem is that these sorts are domains make it virtually impossible to brand your business. Therefore, they are essentially used to direct traffic to a main website. Hence, a business which sells pink footballs would benefit from the snatching up both pink-footballs.com and pinkfootballs.com. There are two reasons for this. First, these domain names are really easy to remember, and second, whoever owns these domains will most likely rank numbers one and two in the search engines for the term “pink footballs”.

2) Domains For Branding

About ten years ago when a lot of existing businesses were getting creating their first websites, it was understandable that they would they would simply take the name of their existing company, and add a .com or .country right after the name. The thing that you should know about country extensions is that they are good for businesses which are popular in the specific country, but not really for international businesses. However, most of us here are starting a work from home business from the ground up. This gives us the opportunity to be clever when selecting our new domain name. However, you just have to realize upfront that there already are millions upon millions of registered domain names out there. Therefore, many names which would be ideal for your home business will not be available to you. Nevertheless, we can all probably agree that shorter domain names are better. I have heard that for branding purposes, five letters is the magic number. The thing that you have to make sure of, is that your domain is easy to pronounce. For instance, although ghfsh.com is five letters long, it is a terrible domain because it is difficult to pronounce, and to remember.

3) Domains Which Utilize General Terms

Back in the late 1990’s, companies were registering general term domains in droves. This was known as the (dot) com boom. However, when the (dot) com bubble burst, many companies who utilized a strategy choosing general term domains crumbled. There were other companies who refused to go this route, and instead focused on creating a brand for their business with their domain name. Several of these companies where able to survive the (dot) com crash. Having said that, general term domains do hold value, and should not be overlooked. Just like keyword domains, general term domains tend to generate traffic via their ability to rank in the search engines for the specific term. For this reason, general term domains are valuable, and should be implemented into your online strategy. What we are able to take from the collapse of the (dot) com era, is that you cannot simply register a general term domain, throw a website on it, and expect your business to flourish. Rather, general term domains are just a piece to the puzzle.

Thus, prior to taking action to work from home with a home business, make sure that you take a good amount of time to compose a list of possible domain names. Keep what you have read here at the front of your mind, and decide which factors are most important to the success of your home business.

In order to profitably Work From Home you will need a website for your Home Business. Just make sure that you put a lot of thought into your domain selection. Furthermore, you should stop by and see us at SOSComplete.com

Affiliate Network – Expose Your Website

Marketing programs from our affiliate network has entered into a brand new era. Nowadays, the search engines are paying attention to websites which are frequently updated with new and unique content. However, making the search engines aware of the fact that your content exists is another matter entirely. This is where social bookmarking comes in. Thus, the purpose of this article will be to discuss social bookmarking, and how it will aid anyone who promotes the products of our affiliate network.

Let me start by giving some background as to why social bookmarking is so important when it comes to promoting products from our affiliate network. As I have said in the past, every single affiliate marketer in the world needs to own and operate their own website. With this website, you must focus on attracting your niche market. Once visitors from your niche market land on your website, you must give them an incentive to provide you with their e-mail address. The reason why you want their e-mail address is so that you can market affiliate products to them in the future. So how do you go about initially attracting niche targeted visitors to your website? Social bookmarking is a proven strategy.

Social bookmarking in and of itself is not complicated. Whenever you add new content to your website or blog, you can create one way links to this content by linking to it via a social bookmarking website. Additionally, you can make your bookmarks more relevant to the theme of your website by tagging them with appropriate key terms, as well as placing them in the correct categories. Hence, if you want to visit a website in the future, you can simply do so by going to your stored social bookmarks. The good news is that it does end there. In fact, other users are also able to search your bookmarked content both on the bookmarking website, and in the search engines. Moreover, each bookmark which you create results in a one way link to your website. One way links pointing to your website give it more authority in the search engines, enabling it to rank for targeted key terms.

One of the biggest problems which you will face in bookmarking your content is the time commitment. The truth is that to tirelessly bookmark your web pages in multiple social bookmarking websites will take the better part of a day. This is why I strongly suggest that you take advantage of inexpensive software which gives you the capacity to automate the process. The software which I use cost less than $30, and gives me the capacity to submit my new content to a myriad of social bookmarking sites in minutes.

At the end of the day, if you want to make it big either with our affiliate network, or in any aspect of internet marketing, you must implement a multifaceted approach to internet marketing. These efforts should be directed squarely to steering targeted traffic to your website with a short-term strategy, as well as a long-term strategy. Keep in mind that the search engines are always looking for new yet unique content. Additionally, they also want to see that others view this content as valuable. The search engines assess the value of content in large part to the number of one way links pointing at the content, the authority and age of the website providing the link, as well as the age of the link. Social bookmarking provides you with a vehicle not only to provide valuable one way links to your website, but also with a means of immediate targeted traffic.

Social bookmarking is a means of marketing which everyone belonging to an Affiliate Network should understand fully. It provides one of the best ways to market your Affiliate Programs. Take every opportunity to learn everything that you can about social bookmarking.

Affiliate Programs – 5 Steps to Niche Dominance

Promoting affiliate programs effectively involves implementing the right approach. Below, I am going to outline a five step marketing approach which has been proven to be effective.

1. Pay Per View Marketing Approach

Pay Per View marketing, also known as PPV, has nothing to do with ordering movies. Rather, it involves paying each time someone views the ad which you are promoting. This actually works quite well with affiliate programs which compensate their marketers for each lead which they produce. Therefore, if you are able to identify PPV keywords which cost you two cents per view, and are able to generate a payment of five cents per view, you will be in a position to earn a 150% profit.

2. Email Marketing

Of course, in order to market via email, you need an email opt-in list to market to. This is by far the best means of marketing, provided that you have the list. It essentially involves sending emails which targeted offers to a targeted segment of the market. If you do not have an email marketing list, I strongly suggest that you start building one.

3. Pay Per Click Otherwise Known as PPC Marketing

I have encountered a high percentage of internet marketers who swear that they will never again engage in Pay Per Click marketing. This is due to the fact that at one time or another, they lost money doing so. What I tell these individuals is that they lost money because they were inexperienced. In order to be successful with PPC marketing, you must watch your Return on Investment very closely. Determine which keywords are converting into sales, and which are not. Get rid of the keywords which do not convert, and bid to rank higher on those which do convert.

4. Article Marketing

If you are using articles to market affiliate programs, you have to be careful. The truth is that most article directories will reject an article if it is clear that its links come from an affiliate program. The good news is that there are two ways around this. You can either take your affiliate link, and convert it into a tiny URL, or you can link to your lead capture page, and utilize article marketing to build your email opt in list. Thereafter, you can market your affiliate programs to your list. Just realize that in order to gain the hundreds of back links which are available to you via article marketing, you need reliable article submission software.

5. Do Whatever it is That is Working

The internet is a great resource. Use it to do your homework. Find out what is working for affiliate programs, and how to make it work simply conducting a search. Although many feel as though any affiliate experiencing success will not reveal how they are so successful, this is not entirely true. What I have found is that successful affiliates are willing to convey which marketing methods are working. What they are not willing to convey is the affiliate offer which they are experiencing success with.

Taking this five step approach will provide you with a good start to promoting your affiliate programs. I strongly suggest that you research each step, and determine how you will specifically implement them in your campaign.

Take full advantage of your Affiliate Programs by implementing the five steps laid out in this article. You will go a long way with our Affiliate Network if you do so. Consistency over time is always the name of the game.

Make Money at Home – Looking Into Social Bookmarking

Do you make money at home with a website? If so, I really hope that you have a clear understanding of social bookmarking can do for your online business. The intended purpose of social bookmarking is to “bookmark” interesting web content so that you can easily return to it later. Additionally, others can search and find this content as well. This is why it is important for you to engage in social bookmarking if you make money at home.

As stated above, other users of a social bookmarking website are able to search and find the websites which you have bookmarked. The “tag”, otherwise known as keywords, which you use to label the topic of the bookmark are searchable. Thus, if you were to tag a website with the term “make money at home”, others would be able to find this tag by searching this term.

Not surprisingly, many of the benefits which are conveyed by social bookmarking do not take place on the social bookmarking websites themselves. Take the scenario of a blogger. Each time you create a new blog entry, a new URL is produced. If this blogger were to bookmark each new blog entry, they will be building links directly to each page. This is very important for two reasons. Firstly, every time a blog entry is bookmarked, a targeted one way link is produced which is tagged with highly relevant keywords. Such a link indicates to the search engines that your website is on topic, which increases your website’s rankings in the search engines for those relevant keywords. Secondly, social bookmarking websites generally have a great deal of authority in the search engines. As such, the links themselves often rank prominently in the search engines rather quickly. The key is to make sure that you have placed the keyword a the beginning of the title of the social bookmark, and used relevant tags.

The truth is that there are several very popular social bookmarking websites on the internet today. The unfortunate fact is that if you own a website, it is extremely time consuming to register for all of these social bookmarking websites, and then submit your web pages to them consistently. For example, I have eight websites, and I write a new article for each website six days per week. Imagine submitting eight new articles to forty different social bookmarking websites six days per week. That equates to 1,920 submissions per week, which is impossible to do manually. For this reason, it is important that you use the right software to automate the process. The software which is use costs me less than $30, and enables me to submit my new articles in minutes. Please maintain your sanity, and use software.

Nevertheless, the main cog to social bookmarking is not the act of bookmarking, but what is being bookmarked. Thus, it is of the utmost importance that you base your social bookmarking strategy around bookmarking pages which are full of unique, well-written content, which covers subject which are pertinent to your target market. This is very important. One thing that you will realize with many social bookmarking websites, is that the bookmark sites are user rated. Hence, when a bookmark receives high ratings, it is receives more exposure. Hence, if your goal is to make money at home, this is exactly what you want.

While it is very possible to Make Money At Home in the absence of social bookmarking, it would be careless not to utilize it? The truth is that most entrepreneurs who successfully Make Money Online use social bookmarking as part of their overall strategy. Come and see us at SOSComplete.com
