What is a blog?
A typical blog serves as an online journal or diary where an individual lets the world know how they think and feel about certain things. If you are a member of facebook.com, myspace.com, or any other social networking site, there's a good chance you have been writing in a blog and didn't even know it.
What is blog marketing?
Blog marketing is the use of a blog or blogs to produce traffic for the purpose of monetizing that traffic. Using a blog to market a product or merely as a means of producing online income is cheaper than using a website, a lot cheaper. This is mainly because of the availability of free blog services that are in many ways just as good as having a website you spent a boatload of money on. Because blog marketing has few barriers to entry, it is an excellent way for a beginner to get their feet wet in the Internet Marketing business.
Thanks to both the human and Search Engine demand for quality content, it's entirely possible to make serious money from creating, promoting, and maintaining blogs. As I hope to show you in this book, turning a blog into a cash machine is relatively inexpensive and can be done by anyone who understands the basics of marketing and the Internet.
Email Marketing For Beginners
Email marketing is when you directly market a message, product, or service to a group of potential or current customers using an email medium. Emails may be informational or be selling something. Basically, every email that is sent to a prospective or current customer could be considered email marketing. For holistic practitioners, use email marketing to communicate with people, whether or not you use it for selling.
In order to comply with the US CAN-SPAM Act, businesses must have its customers or potential customers opt-in to receive emails from the business. To put it simply, your customer must tell your business that they want to receive promotional emails from you. Otherwise, it is considered SPAM and is illegal. Canada has its own spam laws too.
Email marketing is an extremely effective form of marketing. This is because it is both; non intrusive and effective. Everyone checks their emails. Nowadays, people even check their email on their mobile devices. In fact, two out of five Internet searches are now completed on a mobile device. This means that you have more chances of connecting with a potential customer or current customer. The more forms of contact you have with a customer, the better. It has been shown that a customer takes around 6 points of contact in order to make a sale. This means that email marketing can give you a number of these contacts.

It’s a constantly updated stream of news from people all around the world. As a member, you can add your own little message to the time line up to 140 characters long to it known as a “tweet”.

You might be thinking “wow, big deal” but there is massive potential in this mini social networking site to meet other like-minded people, share info and web site links. And those factors mixed with the ability to grow your followers make it a perfect platform for business.
You can also use Twitter to….
* Send direct messages to users instead of broadcasting to everyone,
* Mobile options to send and receive tweets via SMS and email from your cellphone,
* Search options allowing you to find Twitter users posting about a certain topic,

It’s taking the world by storm and there is a great potential for business owners, online and off, so if you’re not a member yet, sign up for a free Twitter account now.
7 Days To Profitable Blogging
A blog is sometimes called web log or weblog. At first, they were used as a personal place, for collecting links, sharing commentary – but now; they are a valid and VALUED form of communication for business people of all types. From the basics of blogging, to the intermediate areas – such as social bookmarking, and article marketing, to the advanced techniques using auto responders and more, there's something for every affiliate marketer to put into motion.
The great thing about blogs is that people read them for fun and for information – in fact, blogging is one of the few areas of the internet that covers business, pleasure, networking and play.
They do for your company what face to face marketing could only do in the past – they provide you with a real, interesting connection to your readers – personalized contact, and information about your company that will allow them to empathize, and discuss your most important points, and anything that ties in with hot button topics and your business.
Blogs give your readers and consumers a chance, not only to read and connect with you, but a chance to comment and discuss with you, and your team, the information that you're sharing – allowing them to further relate to your message. And a consumer that relates to you is a customer in waiting!
Our guide covers the very basics of blogging – it skims into areas that you'll possibly never have heard of – and cover them so that you can employ them in seven days – or less.
Basic SEO Explained
In this book, we will look at what Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is, and the ways in which it can be used. Through this book, we will provide you with the basics on using Search Engine Optimization in order to improve traffic flow to your site.
By many people, SEO is considered to be a part of search engine marketing. It is often used when people are describing a process for improving the amount of traffic that goes to a website from various different search engines. Many site owners will engage in using SEO in an attempt to obtain qualified visitors to their
site. The quality of these visitors will often be measured by what specific keywords they are using in order to reach the desired result they want, such as making a purchase, or it could just viewing or downloading a particular page on that site. It may be that the visitor just requests some further information, or they sign up to a newsletter.
Search Engine Optimization is a marketing strategy which can often generate a good return for the site. But what must be remembered is that search engines are not actually paid for the traffic they send to a site from a natural (organic) search. Plus, they will regularly change the algorithms that they use for these searches to be carried in an effort to improve the results for people using their search engine. In fact, there is no guarantee that using this system is successful in either the long or short term for any website. Because of this, SEO is often compared to traditional forms of PR (Public Relations), while PPC (Pay per Click) advertising is more closely associated with traditional forms of advertising.
However, even if you do find you have increased traffic to your site because of SEO, if your site is unprepared for this increased traffic, it may in fact be detrimental to your site, as visitors will go away feeling dissatisfied and will not return.
But though SEO can be considered as a marketing tactic which is a law unto itself, it is often considered to part of the bigger picture by many industry experts.
