Everybody has a story and very briefly, this is how I started my Internet based home business. It is probably a fairly common story, but never the less, here goes!

Working from home on a part time basis, I had been involved in various forms of offline marketing through the ‘80s and ‘90s. I have always been interested in marketing, promoting, sales and writing.

I connected to the Internet in the mid-90s mainly so I could communicate more effectively with upline and downline members in the Network Marketing opportunity I was promoting at the time. … Read the rest of this entry

Even with all of its bells and whistles, I think free Social Networking with Twitter is still the easiest of all the Social Media sites. Just like all the others, Twitter keeps adding features, but at its most basic, it is simple and quick to use.

I started my first Twitter account a few years ago to test the social marketing waters and see what all the fuss was about. Since then, I have launched several other accounts for various purposes and while I can’t say that any of them have brought any significant amount of sales, the ones I use to promote my home business opportunities have definitely helped to increase my presence within Internet Marketing circles.

My most prominent Twitter accounts are gtbulmer and mypowersite. Whenever I post new blog posts, or articles to the directories, or start new discussion groups in other free social networking sites, I always tweet the links out to my followers on these two Twitter accounts (and sometimes on other accounts). … Read the rest of this entry

GT Bulmer | Targeted Visitors GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

Internet Marketers value the targeted visitors they get from Google, but most think of that traffic only in terms of the income it could produce. In reality, the benefits go beyond simply making money from search engine traffic.

Of course, the first step to online success is to learn and apply some basic SEO (search engine optimization) techniques to your websites and to your onsite and offsite content. Your initial goal is to get your site and your web pages to the first pages of the search engine results pages (SERPs) because high rankings in the SERPs usually means more traffic and more sales.

However, besides making sales and income, there are a few other reasons for working hard to get the top search engine spots. Here are four of the key benefits to consider: … Read the rest of this entry
