Meeting Alex Jeffreys Changed My Life

Graham Cox, Randy Smith, Sally Neill, Katie and Alex Jeffreys

I never met Alex Jeffreys through his coaching program, I met Alex many years ago when he contacted me.

I was running a successful online business based around showing people how to make money selling ebooks on eBay and one day I got an email from Alex.

The email asked if I would promote Alex’s Easy Profit Auctions membership.

I took a look, the membership was great and I started to promote it and they rest they say is history.

The relationships you build online can have a massive effect on your own online business, it can often be a deciding factor in whether or not your business becomes a success.

So today I am going to talk about the importance of planning and building online relationships…

One day, in the not so distant future, the Alex Jeffreys coaching will come to an end for me and my fellow students.

Alex Jeffreys will not be babysitting us forever.

What will happen to you and your business then?

Well I thought it was about time I posted a screen shot of my Google Analytics stats for the amount of traffic coming to my blog.

I have recently been trying to drive as much traffic as possible to my blog because of a competition that is being run by my coach Alex Jeffreys, if you want to know more details about it, you can see my first post about it here:

In It To Win It

I had set myself a target of 8000 visitors, yeah right!

Very unlikely to reach that amount, but hey I gave it my best shot, can’t say I didn’t try.

To be honest I am not gutted I didn’t reach anywhere near my target, the main thing is I have taken steps to ensure I get traffic now, and for a long time to come.

Internet Marketing The Crying Game

its ok for me to cryHave your ever cried about your online business?

Seriously, I will admit I have cried.

Quite a few times actually, and recently was 5 minutes ago.

I tend to cry more from frustration than anything, I hate not knowing how to do “stuff” and it gets me so hot under the collar at times I could scream.

Today, was a particularly stressful day, nothing seemed to be going right from the minute I got out my bed.

That and a few other factors cause me to let it all out.

Like I said I cried about 5 minutes ago, all because of a blog post I read.

Now don’t be rolling your eyes and saying here we go, Sally’s is one of those crazy women who cries at the drop of a hat, because I don’t actually.

It takes quite a build up before the steam comes out my ears.

Even Alex Jeffreys Cries.

If you are a student of Alex Jeffreys you will know he has cried, many times about his online business.

RSS Feed Creation and Promotion

free rss icon imagesIn this blog post I am going to try and explain a method I have been using to increase the visibility of my blog and effectively drive more traffic to my blog, it’s RSS feeds.

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, now it is really simple, but only once you understand it.

Like I said, it can get a little confusing when you have not used Rss before and I don’t want to get too technical.

What is RSS?

Basically an RSS feed is a list that is created from the content contained or added to your website or blog and updated on autopilot.

Let’s say, for example, I create an RSS feed for my blog today, then in a few days I add a new blog post, my rss feed is automatically updated without me doing anything, it’s like MAGIC!

Ok, I am going to try and keep this as simple as possible because it confused me lots when I first tried to learn about rss feeds, I am quite clearly not an RSS expert, but hopefully it helps you…

plating seeds for traffic generationHow I wish I had a crystal ball for my Internet Marketing business.

Lately I have been doing so much promoting for driving traffic to my blog it’s unreal!

It might even be considered madness, if I had not been tracking what I have been doing.

Mostly I have been using free blog traffic methods to get more traffic to my blog.

As I try to drive more traffic to my blog it’s often hard to keep pushing myself without knowing what the results will be, kinda like marketing methods in the dark.

When you are following  proven methods to get blog traffic, they ARE time consuming but they DO work.

Now you might not see results immediately, but don’t despair.

Over the past few weeks I have been blogging traffic by visiting other blogs, I am actually really glad I used that method because not only have I increased traffic to my blog, I have also leaned a whole lot of tips and strategies that will help me progress my online business, all for free too I might add.
