Whose Business Are You Building?

In your quest to get out of debt, are you thinking longterm?

How are you driving traffic to your website? By PPC, articles, some other ways… If you stopped any of these methods right now, would you still get traffic?

  • PPC- No $ to search engines means traffic stops. This also means that continuing PPC builds G,M,Y businesses more than yours.
  • Articles- You put them out there. They drive traffic, but it will decrease over time. Want to know what else you can do with a written article??

 Look at what you’re doing right now… Is it growing your business or just wasting time? If it’s wasting time, STOP IT! If it is building your business, do MORE of it AND write down the process. This process can be used for outsourcers to multiply what you are doing.

(If you are working for someone else and they pay you, do your best for them. BUT, when the whistle blows get working on your business.)

Build Your Business,
Sam Carrara

How Do You Find Success? Take Action!

I have issued a call out to help people with Alexa Rankings and teaching them how to improve their numbers.

The first site I see is by Keith Goodrum. Why will I promote him? Because he takes Action by setting up a blog. He is part of the 2% group that takes information and doesn’t let it sit on the shelf. Check him out at: http://www.keithgoodrum.com/this-is-where-it-all-begins/

Take Action Now! I have only four more slots left and then I will be charging $200-$300 per blog to help with Alexa Rankings. If you want to get this service free go to http://www.samcarrara.com/marketing/alexa-update/ and comment with your website. Don’t wait, I’m closing this free period soon.

Be a 2% Person,
Sam Carrara

There is More to Life Than Google, Yahoo or Microsoft Traffic

Are you depending on Google, Yahoo or Microsoft for your search traffic? How much money and time are you willing to spend to get a good top 20 (top 10 is better and more expensive) natural search listing for your preferred terms. (Not for “Bathing Chipmunks” or “Cross Stitch Patterns”, unless that’s your niche.)

It’s even more expensive if you want to go the paid route or PPC (Price Per Click). You can be successful at PPC, but you need a little cash and a sales page that converts. I’ll cover PPC more in another post.

Go to this site to find a plethora of Alternative Search Engines to be listed on:

You could rank better in these small ponds, save time and money. Stop lining the pockets of Microsoft, Yahoo and Google for your traffic. More for later…

Be Alternative,
Sam Carrara

p.s. Save PPC dollars, advertise on this blog for $5,000 per month (125×125 graphic). I thought I’d try it out.
