Massive Traffic from Google Image

The reason I included this traffic method is because it can send to your website thousands of visitors in a month. Just a picture can get over 3000 visits in a month. Imagine having 10 of those pictures on your website, that is 30,000 visits a month just from Google images alone. A lot of smart marketers and bloggers are using this traffic method but they kept it hidden but I am ready to blow the lid right now
Steps to take to bombard your website with visits

•    Create your own images to be used on your website. The images must of course be related to your website content. Upload the images to your website
•    Edit the images and try to insert a watermark of your website link on the images(Photoshop should handle this )
•    Upload your images (same ones used on your website) to image hosting sites Flickr and photobucket to generate traffic. Ensure you tag the uploaded images with the relevant keywords used on your website, this will ensure you get only targeted traffic
Another unpopular way is to visit google images website and type in the search box the keyword of the pictures you want. Visit the website of the image you selected and copy the image (with the url) to your website. This is frowned on Google as it affects the bandwidth of the hosting website, so using this method carries some form of risk. The first method is risk-free anyway.
It is important to note that, the more popular the image is the more the web traffic to the website that contains the image

                        How to convert your Google Image Search Visitors to Prospect

Google image traffic is good but what this set of visitors want is an image of their search term. Unless your website sells pictures as one of its services, this may not benefit you, a system of converting these visitors to prospects or future readers is therefore necessary. Here are few suggestions you can use to adjust this.
1.    Link your image to other relevant web pages and image galleries
2.    Promote a product that is related to the image you have used
3.    Allow the users to copy the image and paste it on their site
4.    Include your call to action that captures your readers email addresses at the start and end of web pages. This can be achieved by giving out something that is valuable and which is also related to the image on the image
5.    Place your image on a webpage with highly related content so that when the image is clicked on, the page is shown

Getting Targeted Traffic from Google Place listing

Google usually bring up their directory listing on top of search results, so it is important to take note and benefit from this free service. Google business listing alone, if done right, can send thousands of visitors to your website per week.
Getting Targeted Traffic from Google Place listing

Steps to take to get a first page listing
1. Visit www.google.com/places/  fill out all information and upload up to 10 pictures, it is also important to upload the required videos. In order to be indexed by Google, name your videos and pictures with preselected keywords
2. Visit www.yellowpages.com and fill out the free listing there. Google will pull your information from this directory to increase your position in searches
Go to http://www.superpages.com and fill out the form there. Just like yellow pages, it is another place to get free listing for your website.
The result will start showing up in about a month and you start getting visits from the listing

$1000 per Month from Affiliate Marketing


The main job of the affiliate is to promote the services or products of the company that he/she joined as an affiliate.The more the promotion,the better the sales and also the higher the remuneration.This site was designed to teach more about affiliate marketing and all its intricacies for the benefit of potential affiliates who are new to the affiliate game.This site promises to be as encompassing as much as possible as all the important areas of the affiliate marketing shall be covered

Being in the affiliate marketing business is not that hard now with the the advent of Internet . It is much easier now compared to the days when people have to make use of the telephones and other mediums of information just to get the latest updates on the way their program is coming along.

So with technology at hand, and assuming that the affiliate is working from home, a day in his or her life would sound something like this…

Need More Qualified Leads? Use HubSpot's Inbound Marketing System. Try our FREE 30-Day Trial! Upon waking up and after having breakfast, the computer is turned on to check out new developments in the network. As far as the marketer is concerned there might be new things to update and statistics to keep track on.

The site design has to be revised. The marketer knows that a well-designed site can increase sign ups from visitors. It can also help in the affiliate’s conversion rates.

That done, it is time to submit the affiliate program to directories that lists affiliate programs. These directories are means to attract people in joining your affiliate program. A sure way of promoting the affiliate program!

Time to track down the sales you are getting from your affiliates fairly and accurately. There are phone orders and mails to track down.You See if they are new clients checking the products out. Noting down the contact information that might be a viable source in the future.

There are lots of resources to sort out. Ads, banners, button ads and sample recommendations to give out because the marketer knows that this is one way of ensuring more sales. Best to stay visible and accessible too.

The affiliate marketer remembered that there are questions to answer from the visitors. This has to be done quickly. Nothing can turn off a customer than an unanswered email.

To prove that the affiliate is working effectively and efficiently, inquiries would have to be paid more attention on. Nobody wants to be ignored and customers are not always the most patient of all people. Quick answer that should appear professional yet friendly too.

In the process of doing all the necessities, the marketer is logged on to a chat room where he or she interacts with other affiliates and those under that same program. This is where they can discuss things on how to best promote their products.

There are things to be learned and it is a continuous process. Sharing tips and advices is a good way of showing support. There may be others out there wanting to join and may be enticed by the discussion that is going on. There is no harm in assuming what opportunities ahead.

The newsletters and E-zines were updated days ago, so it is time for the affiliate marketer to see if there are some new things happening in the market. This will be written about in the marketer’s publication to be distributed to the old and new customers.

These same publications are also an important tool in keeping up to date with the newly introduced products. The marketer has put up a sale and promotion that customers may want to know about. Besides, they have to keep up with the deadline of these sales written in the publications.

It is that time to show some appreciation to those who have helped the marketer in the promotions and sale increase. Nothing like mentioning the persons, their sites and the process they have done that made everything worked.

Of course, this will be published in the newsletters. Among the more important information that have been written already.

The marketer still has time to write out recommendations to those who want credible sources for the products being promoted. There is also time to post some comments on how to be a successful affiliate marketer on a site like this, where there are lots of wannabes.

Two objectives done at the same time. The marketer gets to promote the product as well as the program they are in. Who knows, someone may be inclined to join.

Time flies. Missed lunch but is quite contented with the tasks done. Bed time….

Ok, so this may not be all done in a day. But then, this gives you an idea of how an affiliate marketer, a dedicated one that is, spends the marketing day.

Is that success looming in the distance or what?
