What makes a good domain name?

Posted by Ally Chan on February 26, 2012

domain_name

Good extension – If a person is surfing around looking for a site, and they know its name, most people will try .com. So, for the web site owner who wants their site to be found, the rule is: if at all possible, get a .com name.

Short – Less than 7 characters, ideally. A simple name will roll off the tongue more easily in conversation, look more professional, and have less chance of being mis-typed. WAIT! There is more to read… read on »

Link Exchange – the Theory

Posted by Ally Chan on October 14, 2009

website-links(2)

This is the theory of LINK EXCHANGE, it may be BORING TO READ, but it’s GOOD TO UNDERSTAND! and sorry, in order to make you have a clear picture of link exchange, this post has to be a bit long!

Let’s start here…


You may think you know what a link exchange is, but I’m here to tell you, there is quite a difference in the type I’m talking about here.

A “normal” link exchange is one where you place a bunch of cruddy banners or extra coding on your site. This will detract from the professionalism you’re striving to preserve. There’s nothing worse than having a big old ugly banner plastered across your web site. And if you have several, well, that just makes it that much more unprofessional looking.

A “real” traffic-pulling link exchange is one in which you solicit linking partners on an individual and personal basis to place their link on your web site if they will do the same for you on their own site. Or, simply asking webmasters to post a link to your site on theirs as both sites content will compliment each other.

The wonderful, crazy place we call “The Internet” really was built on the power of the link.

Joint Venture Success Secret

Posted by Ally Chan on April 26, 2009

One of the most effective ways to generate ‘free’ web site traffic is through participating in what is known as a joint venture (JV).

A joint venture is simply a partnership between two or more people, web sites, or companies that are working towards a common goal. And your main goal is to get some targeted traffic.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Joint ventures are agreements. The term sounds fancy, but that’s really all it’s about. When two or more businesses form a partnership, and agree to work together for a certain period of time on a project, that’s a joint venture.

The benefits of joint venture marketing are almost too numerous to list. The relationships you build and the resources you gain access to can skyrocket your business from ground zero to wildly profitable in record time.

JVs typically don’t require a lot of up front investment of hard cash. That’s the beauty of the method. If you’re stuck in your business due to lack of capital, a JV can give you the leverage you need to move ahead.

This is because JVs hold shared, future profit as their focus. It is to the benefit of both parties to contribute the resources they have available.

Let’s say you have a great product, but no list and no experience generating traffic. You can find a JV partner who has a list and plenty of traffic-pulling know how that would love to endorse and promote your product for a share of the sales.

Both parties win in that scenario. The list owner generates extra profits for himself without the hassle of creating a product, and you generate profit without paying for traffic or spending month’s building a list.

The scenario I just described to you is one of the most common types of joint ventures among information product marketers. You aren’t limited to endorsement based JV’s, though. Anything of value can be exchanged in a joint venture. WAIT! There is more to read… read on »

Don’t ever miss out Classification in your Traffic Strategy!

Posted by Ally Chan on February 23, 2009

Online classified may be used to build one-way link popularity. In some cases, they may net you actual traffic.

You need to be really choosy with classifieds, though. Many of the free sites are junk, and your ad won’t be read.

Instead, I’d recommend placing classifieds in online versions of newsletters/ezines any targeted, content heavy sites that are set up to resemble a magazine. Double check, though, that their classifieds section (if any) appears well-organized and up-to-date.

It’s also better if they charge a fee for placement, as this limits the freebie advertisers from cluttering up the listings.

Remember: any classified you place should a be a “teaser” – in other words, when you write your ad copy, think of it as an extended version of, say, the type of ad you might write for Google Adwords.

You’re not making the pitch here, just compelling people to click on your link.

Promoting & Advertising Your Business on eBay

Posted by Ally Chan on December 31, 2008

eBay.com is an online auction and shopping website in which people and businesses buy and sell goods and services worldwide.

Beside buy and sell goods and services at eBay.com, you can eBay as a channel to promote and advertise your business on eBay.

First Ebay auctions can be used as a test-bed for a new product prior to official launch.

You put your product up for auction and open bidding to start out. The idea is to sell x number of copies until you determine the highest average price that customers are willing to give you for the product.

This isn’t necessarily your final price. It’s the starting price you’ll use on your site’s sales page as a control for split testing.

So you get some important data, but you also get something else: exposure.

Although you’ll pay a small fee to Ebay and Paypal when someone purchases your product, your listing may receive many more hits than you actually paid for if you compared the cost of the auction listing to the cost of getting the same number of clicks via a PPC campaign.

Another promotional tool within Ebay resides on your About me page.

While Ebay forbids linking out to other sites in your auctions, you can link to several outside URLs of your choice in your profile. Thankfully, Ebay does allow you to link to your About me page within your auction.

Even though your link is an extra hop away here, you can still lead your visitors straight to it.

Third, you can use Ebay for list building.

You’ll have your customer’s email address automatically when he pays you. So send him a follow up email or create a custom winning bidder receipt that pitches your newsletter. Or you can even put up products that are pure lead generators for auction at a low price. Make sure you put up a link to your lead capture page in the About me section as well.
