Online marketers were warned they would have to work hard to keep up with rapidly changing trends, and now, with the new shift to t-commerce, another leap in strategic marketing will become necessary. Are you up to the challenge?

Website Magazine reports in the article, The Next Game Changer, by Tom Nawara of the Acquity Group, that “Tablet sales are expected to soar, and Forrester estimates that one-third of online consumers will be using a tablet by 2015.”

The article goes on to highlight a comScore report that states, “Nearly half of today’s tablet owners have made purchases on their devices. The practice now known as t-commerce is taking off.”

Retailers, including online marketers, need to take notice of this shift in consumer practices and begin adjusting their marketing strategies accordingly. … Read the rest of this entry

A Basic Link Building Guide

GT Bulmer | Link Building Guide GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

This will be a basic link building guide, and I do mean basic. Just a little insight into the purpose and value of having an ongoing campaign for building links back to your website and the bare fundamentals of what to do.

Backlinks are links you get on other websites that point back to the home page of your website, or to other pages on your site. Not only can these links bring you additional traffic, but they can also help to improve your standing in the search engines.

Search engine traffic is valuable because it is generally highly targeted, meaning that the visitors you get from the search engines typically know exactly what they want, and thanks to the search engine results, they believe you’ve got it! … Read the rest of this entry

My Search Engine Traffic Stats Are Down

GT Bulmer | Search Engine Traffic GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

I like to check my website analytics reports everyday and one thing I’ve noticed over the past month is that my search engine traffic statistics have gone down in comparison to the referral traffic for this website.

The search engine stats used to run about equal with the referral traffic stats, but lately, the percentage for referral traffic has been higher; which suggests that the traffic coming from the search engines is lower.

On the surface, it might simply appear that I need to do more keyword marketing and article marketing. However, for more than a month now, I have been increasing my article submissions and blog posts, so I am going to point the finger at Google’s algorithm changes for this drop in search traffic. … Read the rest of this entry

GT Bulmer | Optimize Your Website GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

Keyword marketing is the foundation of search engine success, but some marketers focus only on their home page. Other areas of a site need attention, too, and you should optimize your website pages for different keywords.

A balanced program of search engine optimization (SEO) should include all key pages on a website and each page should be optimized for different but related keywords and promoted with off-site methods accordingly.

The more pages you can add to your website and optimize for different keywords, the better. Many Internet Marketers use longer keyword phrases, at least in the early stages of their online business, because longer phrases have less search engine competition. … Read the rest of this entry

GT Bulmer | Search Engine Optimization Strategies GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

Search Engine Optimization strategies must be balanced no matter what method happens to be your favourite. On-site and off-site SEO factors each have their place of significance and should be given due consideration.

Newcomers to Internet Marketing are very often overwhelmed by information overload and it is not uncommon for their SEO education to be buried somewhere way down the list of priorities. I know. I was in that place when I first started looking at Internet based home business opportunities.

Fortunately for me, I had good mentors who guided me along and helped me learn the basics of marketing, step by step. Early on, I was coached on the purpose of effective SEO and I gained some valuable insight that continues to guide my efforts today. … Read the rest of this entry

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.

Free Social Networking With Twitter

GT Bulmer | Free Social Networking GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

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
