Internet Marketing – Is this for YOU?

December 19, 2008 by · 3 Comments 

Ready to RunOne of my readers shot me an email and it sounded like he is hesitant to start his own internet business since his relatives has a lot of “negative” opinions on it. He was also seeking advice on whether his chosen market is a good one or not.

First off, I usually don’t answer these kinds of emails unless they’re my coaching client or they hired me for an hour/s of consulting. However, this time its different because I realized I have not talked about this topic on this blog yet – specifically on how to choose a market.

On the other hand, I have mentioned in my previous articles that I’m writing a book on internet marketing. [My process is too slow but I’m catching up]. One of the chapters in the book discusses about how I started my online business. So, this post includes an excerpt from the book and I hope this will inspire YOU, our valued readers, and may you succeed with your online businesses. This will take away the dark areas of internet marketing. 

So, let’s get started. Read more

First off, Search Engine Optimization(SEO) is not my full time job but I’ve been closely watching experts in this field and experimenting my own sites. I’ve been successful on a number of sites of own and my clients as well by implementing all the data I got from my experiments. I tried virtually every way to improve SEO and already have a list of what works and what’s not. High search engine ranking is a result of every “site details” done in a proper way – that is SEO.

Internet Marketing in the Philippines

August 15, 2008 by · 2 Comments 

Finally, after several weeks of brainstorming with my wife (and myself), I decided to:
1. Maintain only TWO blogs – this one and Information Marketing Central.
2. Write a book on the topic ‘Internet Marketing in the Philippines.’

Maintaining Blogs
It’s a pain in the neck maintaining multiple blogs. Trust me. I have setup a LOT of blogs in hope that I will earn more money. I’m dead wrong. If you can’t regularly post new content and give real meat to your audience then there’s NO way you can monetize from your blog. Read more

"Some of the links here may be affiliate links. In cases like that I get paid an affiliate commission. I will never lie to you about things like that, but YOUR price if you decide to buy will not be affected. I am also VERY careful not to make ANY exaggerated income claims. Some people make money using my materials but the vast majority do NOT. This saddens me, but it's the truth. I only hope that YOU will be one of the few who makes money.
