There is a BIG differencebetween blogging and blogging for business. It s not just about throwing upblog posts hoping people drop in and find your content or buy your products,it s about strategically using the most important piece of real estate you haveonline to showcase your brand, build an email list and sell your products andservices 24/7 365.Believe it or not I didnt really focus on using my blog as a list building tooluntil I was almost a year into writing content everyday. OMG...what was Ithinking?A website is the most effective branding and marketing tool you have whenpromoting your business online and it exists for one reason - to sell for you!Your website will be the foundation of everything you do on the Internet. It swhere you ll share your expertise, build a relationship with your readers, turnprospects into subscribers and promote your products. If you want to makemoney online you MUST turn your website into a well-oiled cash machine.That is 12 months of lost time, lost subscribers, lost money.

Here is a real life walk through of what ittakes to turn your website into the a cash machine!Andrea Bolder
    • Let s start with a little heart to heart talk. This is a topic where I still see alot of people dropping the ball. Look, I dont know your story, and I dontknow how you found the Marketing.Mindset.Money website. What I doknow, however, is that I can help you learn EXACTLY how to be profitable inyour business using the Internet.And it starts and ends with your Blog! So today we are going to get you upto speed on Wordpress.When I got started marketing online, I struggled for about 12 months.Quite frankly, I just didnt have a HUGE budget to put into PPC and otherpaid methods to get my business cranking quickly. So I KNEW that I hadto MASTER the free techniques in order to fund my business to the nextlevel.And the one thing I knew I had to MASTER was BLOGGING!It didnt take long...After I had discovered a few key principles, I had a blog that was gettingthousands of visitors a day and my email list exploded.Even better, ALL of the visitors were completely free of charge, usinghonest, principle based marketing strategies. Do you think that you couldprofit from hundreds, even thousands of new visitors to your website overthe next 2 months?Wordpress is the blogging platform thousands of online marketers areusing to build their businesses with and its what ALL of my clients areusing to build their business. And heres the deal. The people who useWordpress make more money than those who dont. Period.CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 01wordpress
    • If you are going to use Wordpress, remember two critical issues:Do not use the free version found at Wordpress.com. This is forthose who are only hobby-blogging. Free sites such as Blogger, TypePad or Wordpress.com were never intended for marketing abusiness. So if you are using the free version of Wordpress, I have 2-words for you. Stop now. Wordpress can shut you down and all yourhard work will be gone. So don t make this mistake.What is the hosted version? This can be found with Hostgator.com.You essentially are picking your own website name (URL) and thenyoull purchase a hosted domain. It will cost you about $8.00 -$10.00 per month. No big deal, we have to spend money to run abusiness.Heres the more critical information - you own the content on these sites.No one can shut you down, unless you are breaking the law of course,and you own the content.You are free to do what you want. We want to make money with our blog.Thats what this bootcamp is about. So get yourself on a hosted domain.If you are stuck on what your domain name should be or your URL - noworries. I wrote a blog post that explains that topic here."How To Choose A Domain Name That Rocks"The bottom line is that you need WordPress if you are going to makemoney with your blog. Get it done!If you need instructions on installing wordpress watch this step-by-steptutorial here:http://andreabolder.com/2012/making-money-blogging-installing-wordpressIll see you tomorrow with training to take you to the next step.
    • Blogging correctly means traffic, leads and cash flow.Day #2 comes to you with some in depth training. Today, were talkingabout the importance of getting to work inside of Wordpress and not justcreating another plan. Building a plan means nothing if you dont act on it.Read this training now:http://andreabolder.com/2012/making-money-blogging-updating-your-wordpress-settings/Quite frankly, when you understand WHY things rank the way they do,dominating the search engines is as easy as 1,2,3......its the little things that sometimes make all the difference.The correct information in your headline or tagline in Wordpress should bedirectly related to keywords that you are impacting. Think of "results!"when you are looking for keywords. What is it you provide and what arethe results people are seeing with your products or services.Secondly, to increase your SEO ranks and your traffic, write your tagline orheadline like this:weight loss ¦ lose weight fast ¦ your specialty weight loss blog ¦better weight loss methods ¦ shrink belly fatIf I were to create a weight loss focused blog, this is how I would create mytagline and headline on my website. This would cause Google to find mefaster and my keywords will dominate FAST!So...what are your keywords? Tomorrow Ill teach you how to find those andwell move forward through the next few days on using them effectively.CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 02wordpress
    • So yesterday we talked about headlines and taglines in your Wordpressblog. Here are some step-by-step directions for activating that in case yougot stuck.Go to your Wordpress DashboardClick on Settings on the left hand sideClick on GeneralFind The Site TitleFind TaglineThen, take the instructions we gave yesterday and write your Site Title andtagline with the results as your focus.The truth of the matter is that people dont look online for products,services, etc as much as they look for results.They dont type into search engines or go researching for information onservices and products as much as they do results. So our focus isRESULTS!!You see I had been marketing online for couple of months and I wasgetting some ok results......I had been getting about 5 leads a day,..But I was having a problem. You see, no matter what I did, I just COULDNOT get my pages to show up in the prime search results of Google, orany other search engine for that matter for a whole week or more.I tried everything you could imagine, (even tricking Google) but it justwasnt enough. But when I started focusing on results and I tweaked myblog title and headline I was getting my posts indexed on the first page ofGoogle within minutes.CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 03wordpress
    • ...I was syked!!When you use the symbol ¦ between your words, Google reads those in aunique way so youll rise in the search engines. The words weight loss, loseweight, skinny body, quick weight loss OR Lose Weight Fast will not pull asfast as:Lose Weight ¦ Fast Weight Loss ¦ Weight loss ¦ Lose That Fat Body ¦Quick Weight Loss will.So use this symbol ¦ - it can be found above the return key on yourkeyboard.So here is your action step:Go to Google right now and type in your specific keywords. Find out who isat the top of the search engines. Take note of the words they are using,the things they are writing about. This is what youll want to do as well.Keywords are based on search volume and relevancy. That means - makeyour site relevant to the words people are typing in and youll increase thevolume.In day 3 Im going to share with you my "private eye keyword spy tools" in avideo that draws people into your blog like bees flock to honey.

If peoplerespond to it you are on the right track. If people swarm to it, you aredoing awesome! If you get a poor response or no response at all, its timeto go back to the drawing board.Testing magnetic headlines is a really BIG aspect to a successful onlinebusiness. Good marketers TEST and TWEAK, TEST and TWEAK. So...testyour headlines through Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.Create 3-4 headlines each day and test them. Write your results in a exceldocument or note pad. Remember as well, if you only have 50 friends onFacebook and 35 on Twitter, the pool of people will not be big enough toget any reliable feedback.Results depend on a ton of contacts, so increase your friends andfollowers so that your results will go farther and give you more accuratedata to measure testing with.CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 07testheadlines

Well how about a $1000 bucks.How you style your images on your blog and websites can really addincome to your bottom line.Images, pictures and graphics are not just there to look pretty (eventhough you do want to attract people with eye-catching images) ...They can be used to teach, to educate, to convey a message.Images also give your blog depth and can turn a boring site with lots ofgreat content into a top-notch blog that knows how to cater to andentertain their audience while still being able to deliver the goods.Blogs that use pictures in a very strategic manner tend to get more traffic,more repeat visitors, higher opt-ins, higher conversions and more repeatsales.Here is a quick tutorial on how to add images to your blog posts.http://andreabolder.com/2012/internet-network-marketing-blog-series-video-09-creating-wordpress-blog-pages/Tomorrow were talking about video!!

    • Today is Day #9 of our 30 Day Blogging Bootcamp training!Time to talk video!!Not all videos are created equal. There is a reason why some videosbecome viral and others just collect dust online.The best videos you can use on your blog are those that you do yourself,were people can get to know you, your personality and "feel" yourpresence.Polished and perfect is not what "high converting videos" are made of.Its best to do a video that is casual yet professional. One that reallyconnects you to your audience. Studies show that if you get too perfectpeople wont trust you - its almost like to you are trying too hard.Truth be told, no one likes a super polished perfect all the time leader.WHY?Because no one is perfect and perfection is something that a lot of peoplewill not relate to. They want to aspire to be like someone they enjoywatching, who can share stories and experiences that hit them not only inthe mind but in the heart as well.It is easier than ever to publish videos to your blog. Ill upload videos toYouTube, Facebook and Viddler and if I need a to protect my videos say, ifIm using them for a membership site or info-product, Ill use Amazon S3.I shoot videos from my MacBook, my iPhone or even with my handheldcamera. When you are just getting started online there is no need forspecial software - just get the job done.CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 09video
    • Now this also doesnt mean you want to upload a blurry, shaky video, withbackground noise in an unprofessional setting. Casual does not mean lowquality. You want high quality, engaging, interactive and enjoyable.Deliver high quality content. That is your priority. Talk to people as if theywere your friend. Dont use words you normally wouldnt use. Feel free tobe yourself. People will appreciate the authentic you - flaws and all.While it may take a few tries, just keep practicing. The more videos you dothe better youll get. Sometimes the very first take is the best take. Itseems like the more you try to get it right the more you end up messing itup!So...take a deep breath and just go for it.Better to do 20 videos and learn as you go than to never get a video outthere because you are always trying to be perfect.Be yourself, YOU are the only one who can do that and there is NO ONEthat can deliver content the way you can!Need help getting started with video?Click here to get access to your free 6 part series to killer videomarketing...Start adding videos to your blog regularly and most of all have fun! Its asure way to keep your audience coming back again and again.

While you arethere, go ahead and search for your own name and/or companyname to see if anyone is talking about you.I dont ever check my DMs any longer - too much work and too muchspam.Repeat this at least 3 times a day - takes me about 15 minutes perblock.See ya tomorrow!

    • Today is Day #14 of our 30 day Blogging Bootcamp training!People ask me all the time why they need a WordPress blog and not atraditional website! Here is what I always tell people.There are many different blogging sites out there today, but if you areserious about monetizing your blog and want to establish yourself as achampionship player online, its important to use Wordpress.org as yourblogging platform...Blogging sites like Blogger and Wordpress.com host your blog for you,which means you do not have full control over your blog or the contentyou create on it. If they decide one day to shut down or pull your site,your blog and all its content is gone.Wordpress.org is free and your blog will be self-hosted, meaning you willhave 100% control and ownership over it. As a professional businessowner, you always want to have complete control of your work, yourbusiness, and your income. Since your blog is the core of your onlinebusiness, you dont want to ever risk losing it.Blogging marries social media beautifully because it removes the wallsbetween business owner and prospect. Its all about the connection!So! Use Wordpress for the best SEO value youll ever get - even betterthan Blogger, TypePad, Squidoo and all those other blogging platforms.Nothing, if you are serious about business, being on the first page ofGoogle, owning your own content and eventually making money with itworks like Wordpress to accomplish it.Ill be back tomorrow with some info on how to create a lead magnet foryour opt-in offer and how to build a money making email list!CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 14wordpressreview

    • Today is Day #17 of our 30 day Blogging Bootcamp training!Lets talk about lowering your Alexa ranking some more and how to gethigher into the Organic Rankings on Google. These two things alone willbring visitors to your site for your targeted keywords.Blogging regularly and then getting people to your site every single day isthe goal. Dont just drive people to your site with your current blog post,but drive them to your site with these activities as well:When you post a video from YouTube try to send traffic throughyour website. This way Google and Alexa "see" that the traffic isgoing from point of contact - email, social media...TO your blog andthen TO YouTube or Vimeo. Embed the video into your blog page orpost and have it there.When you are on Twitter or Facebook, drive traffic BACK to yourwebsite. Feature articles, your sales pages and lead capture pages,ask a question and create a page for people to comment on. All ofthis traffic works in your favor with lowering your Alexa ranking.Build an alliance with like-minded marketers. Create a TLC alliancewhere you and a group of friends Tweet, Like and Comment on eachothers blog posts when they are published.

    • Today is Day #20 of our 30 Day Blogging Bootcamp training.I love everything about being able to build a business online, one thatattracts people who actually want my help and are seeking the solutions Ihave to offer them.When you get to the point in your business when you understand, I meantruly understand that the skills, gifts and knowledge you have can impactothers - it makes all the hard work, failures and hurdles worth it.Today we are back on the topic of list building. It is a topic I absolutelyLOVE! Over the course of the last 2 1/2 years Ive been able to grow listsinto the thousands and they continue to grow every single day.So, what are the key focus points in list building? Here is a quick checklistfor you:Your Irresistible Offer: If you are not getting opt ins - check youroffer. You want to make sure your offer is something people want. Awebinar that has nothing but testimonials on it doesnt do me verygood. Give me some useable, step by step information I canimplement right away and get some immediate results. This is whatmakes for a great opt-in offer.My opt-in offer is usually an eBook or video course.Here are a couple of different offers:http://blogtrafficbootcamp.com/hypnotic-headlines/http://fastcashebookformula.com/how-to-write-an-ebook-free-report/CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 20lists,lists,lists!
    • These are both information products that if I wanted to SELL I couldbecause it has that much value but I have chosen to give them awayinstead.Be sure you know who your target audience and ideal prospect is?What motivates them? What are they looking for? What challengesare the desperately looking to solve? What inspires them? Whatkeeps them up at night? What are their desires?No on loses sleep because they are worried about whether or nottheir weight loss drink taste great. But I see this everyday - adsonline that focus on taste! Heres the deal - they lose sleep worryingabout whether or not they are going to look cute in the new blackdress or suit they just bought for next months reunion.Speak to your ideal prospect in their language. You have to be ableto walk into their shoes. This is super critical - so much so that if youdont get this right you will never make money online. Your prospectdoesnt care about what motivates you, but you have to care aboutwhat motivates them!Make your blog a relationship hub! Content is great, but you have tofind a way to build a connection. Facts, data, and figure dont sell,stories, relationships, and engagement do. So be sure youre notoverloading people with facts when they want community andconnection.Richard Branson, Virgin mogul spoke about this very topic. Thebiggest companies in the world know the value of a connection. Theyare all focusing on social media, because they know and understandthe importance of building relationships online. So be very careful ifyou are giving far too much information and not enough connection.Well talk some more about this a little later and well be talking more aboutheadlines and how to convert your ideal prospect into a customer.

    • Today is Day #23 of our 30 Day Blogging Bootcamp training.Lets talk about products and services!!There is not a day that goes by that I dont receive a message on Facebookor via email where someone is asking me what is the best way to promotetheir products and services (or affiliate products) on their blog. They wantto know where to showcase their products, if they should sell to their emaillist, how much promotion is too much and so on?The thing Ill tell you is WATCH what I do. WATCH what other successfulmarketers do. I am a brand that sells both products and services. Thisdoes not change the way I market things. The truth is people are theconsumer of your products or services. People are the ones who will buyyour products, services, programs and coaching...One of the biggesttickets to success on your blog is to always remember that PEOPLE areyour focus more than anything.If your products are not serving the PEOPLE, they wont buy your stuff. Ifyou cant find a way to convey the benefits of your products, they wontbuy. PERIOD.When you write copy about your products you must focus on the results,and the benefits you bring your customers.It is super important that you understand what people want out of yourproducts and services. Do they want a great tasting protein bar? Or dothey want a beach body that they feel good about? Do they really want toearn more money? Or do they want to eliminate the worry and anxiety ofan uncertain future?Tap into what your prospects really want and you will succeed with anyproduct, any affiliate program, any service in any market online.CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 23sellingonline

    • Today is Day #25 of our 30 Day Blogging Bootcamp training.Why do you buy stuff?Because it satisfies an emotion of need, want, desire.Now whether you really needed to spend your last $50 bucks on a pair ofred pumps, the point is your desire to HAVE outweighed the cost of theproduct you were buying.Always remember this one fact - people buy products that make them feelgood. People buy on emotion.Its critical that you find out who your ideal avatar is. What is their pressingproblem that needs to be satisfied. Your product is aimed to satisfy thaturgent pressing problem...and your blog is the mouth piece for presentingthe answers to your ideal prospect s problem.When marketing your products or services online, learn more about yourcustomers and potential customers than you do your products and asTony Robbins teaches, youll go farther than anyone else in your industryor niche.You are in the "people business" and you should spend a time learning howto talk to, influence and serve people. This alone is the key to successfullymarketing your products and services.Share your story.Share the success of others.Pay attention to what people want.Take the time to listen.These are the things that will pay you handsomely!CHAMPION YOUR BUSINESS 30 DAYBLOGGING BOOTCAMPc r e a t e a w e b s i t e t h a t s e l l s . . . a n d n o t s u c k !day 25satisfyingemotion

    • Today is Day #27 of our 30 Day Blogging Bootcamp training.Social media is a powerful tool for driving blog traffic and building youronline reputation.Many people think social media is just another fun tool" to use whenblogging, In fact, this couldnt be further form the truth.Outside of Google, my next best source of traffic is Facebook.Social media happens to be the #1 way of building rapport, connectingwith your audience and getting critical feedback from your target audienceonline.But while social media is an awesome tool, just setting up a fan page ortwitter account is not going to make you any more money than creating ablog does. We have to connect with our audience, listen to them and servethem in a way that provides them exactly what they are asking for.One of the most important skills when it comes to creating success in youronline business is your ability to LISTEN.Ive seen marketers blow tens of thousands of dollars in paid advertisingonline...but their ads dont convert because they are not paying attention towhat their prospects are asking for.They are not creating sales because people dont know, like, or trust theiradvice.So when were on social media, be sure to ask questions, engage, buildrelationships. Just ask people how they are doing, what is the one thingthey wish they can have, change, do different.
