Perfect Tools For Authority Blogging

Blogging ToolsHaving the right tools can make all the difference when you’re trying to begin a new online business… and make no mistake about it – creating an online authority website is a real business that will profit you greatly!

Some required tools, such as a domain name, hosting, and autoresponder – will cost you money. (they will also end up making you a lot of money!) Other tools listed here are completely free.

So without further ado – here are my recommendations in no particular order: [Read more…]

Finding The Perfect Domain Name

Domain NameThe first step in creating an authority website is to find the perfect domain name for your site. Unlike niche sites, where this can be quite difficult (trying to find a short name that includes your keywords), in creating an authority website this will be extremely easy.

My Recommendation – use your name. If your name isn’t available, simply add one more word to your name – as was done right here on BenHolmesOnline.com – use your imagination to pick a good word – such as ‘blog’, ‘site’, ‘live’, ‘home’, ‘101’, ‘advice’, ‘tutorials’, ‘plan’… you might try [Read more…]

How To Get 1,257 Visitors In 48 Hours

1,257 VisitorsIt’s a simple formula – Traffic + Conversions = Money.

If you insist on doing everything yourself – you’ll get bogged down in minutia, and you’ll end up not making as much money as you could be making.

How Can You Afford Solo Ads?

Solo Ads Equal MoneyI’ve gotten emails from some people on my list asking for more information about free methods of driving traffic because they don’t have extra cash for Solo Ads. I can empathize, (or, as one famous politician puts it, “I can feel your pain…”) since I can remember when squeezing $15, $30, or $45 dollars for another Solo ad was something I had to budget for. I remember just how painful that was… I really did have to cut out some extras in my life to free up some money for Solo ads.   So I really do understand the problem that some of my subscribers have.  It’s far less painful to work with free traffic…  But as I explain in my ebook, List Lightning – paid traffic is immediate, and free traffic is slow.

Having Photo Fun With Blogging…

Writing HandOkay – sometimes I just like to have fun. In my last post, I had a simple photo of a hand holding a pencil… let’s take a look at it… you see just an ordinary image that I picked up off the Internet… but before I used it, I loaded up my trusty Paint Shop Pro … an old version 7 that I bought many years ago and still does everything I need.

First I resized the graphic to what I wanted… [Read more…]
