Five Reasons You Are not Making Money Online
1) You're not using article marketing.
Article marketing is a fantastic way to gain search engine rankings and traffic to your site. By submitting to the large article directories, such as Ezine Articles and GoArticles, you will receive backlinks to your site from these high page rank directories. This kind of exposure is extremely important.
2) You're using PLR (private label rights) content exactly as it was given to you.
Maybe you are a member of a PLR membership site. This can be a great resource, but if you're simply slapping your name on whatever they give you, it's not going to make you much money. Make something entirely unique out of it. Repackage it, reword it, break it into smaller pieces, just make it different. Now you will be able to harness the full selling power of your content.
3) You're hanging entirely on affiliate programs.
Affiliate programs are wonderful and they have their place in Internet marketing. But, going back to reason # 2, you need to have some products of your own! The best part is, you do not really have to create an absolutely new product. Again, back to reason # 2, you can create a new product by combining multiple PLR ??resources.
4) You're not doing keyword research.
Keyword research is very important. Why waste time on writing articles, placing ads, or designing a site if you are not targeting keywords that people are interested in? You can type in a keyword, such as "baseball cards," and see all of the relevant keywords that people are searching for, such as "baseball cards value" or "topps baseball cards." This gives you good keywords to focus your content around.
5) You're not taking action.
This is a simple one, but extremely important. Too many people sit around, dreaming about what they will have when they accomplish their goals. While visualizing your success is important, if you spend all of your time visualizing and little or no time actually doing anything, you're bound to get now!
