This should relate to your style of speaking, ultimately it is YOU, which should be projected to your audience. They can tell from your post it is you who wrote it. Make this effort to develop your own writing style. Of course be natural! You must have heard of this saying “mean what you say” this is the same with your writing style.
So what is this design style about? It’s just the font size and type that you used. Remember always stay consistent and that’s the name of the game. In whatever you do always be consistent. Our audience can always see this point.

This video slides in a summarised form for quick reference
Funny how should I begin?
As usual in the morning Jim and Jen were heading out for work. Got into their car and prepared to drive off and the morning air was still fresh and the sun was glowing.
Now, the all too common traffic jam began as they headed into the highway. “How dreadful this can be” Jim told his wife Jen to start the day and it’s Monday. “Nice” was Jen’s reply.
When we drive we all dread traffic don’t we? In fact if there were no traffic how nice would our drive be!
Let’s get back to reality in our Internet Marketing world. Given the above situation of what Jim and Jen were caught in don’t we want this for our blog site? In fact we love this sort of traffic jam.
Now how do we get this sort of traffic jam to our blog site? Here are some basics to consider before we can see traffic flowing in.
You may now say Yes, Yes, I did all of the above but still I don’t see the traffic coming in. Hmm, was there something wrong with my content or videos or training? Right this very moment I’m in that situation!
Do share with me if you have been through this before or going through it right now. Drop me your comments in the comment box.
This is not something new, but has been around for some time it’s www.shareslide.net
To be honest upfront I have not try it, but will take the courage to do so. (I’m very shy in trying out something new to me…. Lol) I was told it got like 70 million viewership! Yes I’m excited about the number and in fact just give me 0.001% of that traffic would be a handful for me to handle, I must admit! This can only happen if you do it right.
All you need to do is have a power point presentation on your content!
One question that will have you wondering is “What must I do with such presentation to Raise My Website Traffic?”
Guys if you have more points or ideas to add feel free to drop these in the comment box. I do appreciate your contribution.
To sum it up just remember these 3 pointers: –
Always bring your viewers or audience to your blog where perhaps some form of product or services are offer for sale.
This is just my opinion and feels free to share if you feel otherwise in the comment box.
Johnny was failing in everything he does just like some of us Internet marketers. Be it his personal life or in whatever he does in short. If you feel you can relate with Johnny as an Internet Marketer, than you may like to try these suggestions.
Now I must have gone on far too long!
I love you to share ideas with me not only what works but what doesn’t as well.
Do give me your comments on my blog post below.
Till next week, Never Give Up!
Part 3 – Installing Your Blog
Part 1 – Definition of a Blog
This is an Overview to Help Anyone getting Started as an Affiliate Marketer
First of all do you agreed we all have 24 hours a day irrespective of status? The president of U.S.A. or the Queen of England as well as the worker in the car manufacturing factory and the Internet marketer all have 24 hours a day. Not a second or a minute more does any of them has.
As an Internet Marketer myself, I must admit it is very challenging and many times a struggle in keeping and managing time in a jammed pack day! I’m not sure about you but if you face a similar situation in your day do share with me by leaving your comments at the end of my post.
I’m sure at the start of everyday we do have mentally in us what we want to do for the day. This is fine if the task before you is only a handful. Now what if the tasks we have gets a handful, can you possibly remember every task? I used to do that not too long ago in my day job. Very often we may forget as there will be urgent task that warrants your immediate attention. Otherwise you or for sure myself get distracted by other attractions that come our way. So when you reach end day did you ever ask yourself what have you accomplish today? I did that several times definitely not more than 5 I must admit! Next what do we do, well I normally or my colleagues will always said “Tomorrow we will do it” now what happen if tomorrow you fall ill and absent yourself from work. Perhaps in our Internet marketing world we too may become sick or too sick to even log into our laptop.
I was a procrastinator and today I’m still one but a lesser one thankfully. Today I use a time management sheet to list out my tasks and prioritise which is the most important one for the day. I strongly encourage Internet marketers to have this list and try your very best to stick to it as far as possible.
It did help me to a certain extend and I’m fine tuning it. One secret is not to list too many task on your list. I am sure you will get overwhelmed. This is speaking from my experience, as this will lead you back to the same spot as you have started.
So as an Internet marketer you may list your task related to your business like blogging, sourcing for traffic, preparing your squeeze page, shooting of videos, or writing your scripts. Next you may want to list other task or duties you have to do in the day. Perhaps like errands, fetching or sending children to school, groceries shopping or even exercising like jogging or brisk walking or workout in the gym.
It is from this very long list you will pick the important ones and place these first or on top of your list. Have a balance and do not get too ambitious in trying to get all done as you will not and that’s where you will give up and fall into old ways.
Now followers of my blog do leave a feedback or some sharing about what I have just posted. It is extremely useful if we could share with each other our experiences. This will be beneficial both ways.
Do note my blog will soon be undergoing some restructuring, do bear with me as I have my blog improve for the benefit of all.
Have a fantastic and profitable week!
