Falling Down on the Job?

falling down on the jobHey folks!

Just wanted everyone out there to know that I have not abandoned markgrahammarketing.com although it may seem like it! I have taken a bit of a break because of my father’s health and will be back soon to harass people about things like consistency!

I am working on a new post now that should help quite a few people in terms of finding ways to get onto the first page of Google or the other search engine results pages (SERPs). Of course, most of what I do know and use depends on you being pretty consistent with content creation.

In the blog post that I am working on, I will be discussing article marketing, video marketing and blogging as ways to generate qualified and targeted traffic. These methods are the specific methods that I have used in the past and still use to this day to generate traffic, leads and income, so stay tuned!

I am also on the hunt for more information…information that you want to see that you can find useful, so please let me know what you may be looking for and I’ll do my best to create an article, video or blog post with that information. Hell…I may just develop content using all three methods if the subject matter is pretty good!

Bottom line is this, don’t worry about me I will return with great vigor and excitement as we pursue making money online.

See you at the top!



Generating Targeted Visitors

generating targeted visitorsStarting Off the Right Way by Targeting Traffic

One of the biggest mistakes a new marketer can make is believing that they need visitors and while this sounds like an obvious necessity, the mistake lies in not realizing that you really need to learn about generating targeted visitors rather than general visitors.

What are targeted visitors?

Targeted visitors are those folks that are looking for information about your niche that you locate and then attract to your site with posts that contain articles, videos or audios with content this group of people are seeking. These niche specific visitors that you have attracted are known as targeted visitors and make up your targeted traffic.

How You Start Generating Targeted Visitors to Your Site

Here it is…those secrets about generating targeted visitors that everyone just has to know!

There is a problem with that though and it is this…

…there are no secrets!

Yep, it’s true, there really aren’t any secrets out there that will instantly take you from A to Z. There are many methods and techniques that will help you generate targeted traffic and eventually leads. It will require a plan and a LOT of action…you know, work!

With that said, I will lay out a specific plan of action that will take just about any site out there with “lack luster” results to a point where the site will receive 100+ targeted visitors per day.

Let’s get started!

generating targeted visitorsGenerating Targeted Visitors With Articles

I can’t tell you how many times I have written articles or produced videos about the topic of article marketing.


Because article marketing has worked so well for me in the past, but it also works for me today. I can generate fifteen to thirty additional leads per day within a week just by writing articles and posting them in the right place.

Another great thing about writing articles is that once created, these articles will work for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for months and even years down the road!

I love article marketing. Writing articles was the very first way I started generating leads and it works as well today as it did then – even better!

Generating Targeted Visitors With Videos

Generating targeted visitors with videos is probably one of the most effective and efficient methods I have ever used and if you are not creating videos today for your business opportunities or products or whatever then I can tell you that you are missing the boat!

More than ever creating videos to promote your products, opportunities and even yourself is a necessity rather than a luxury. People are always looking for easier ways to get their information online and producing a simple video where you “sell” yourself or your opportunity is one of the best ways to go about it.

I also like the fact that there are so many video hosting services out there like YouTube, Daily Motion and Vimeo just to name a few. You can load your videos up to these – and other – video hosting sites in a few minutes.

Don’t think that you have to create a professional and expert video either, the main thing you want to do is get the information out there for those that are looking for it. The most important thing to remember, whether you are producing videos or writing pulitzer prize winning articles is to create high value content!

Generating Targeted Visitors With High Value Content

While super-awesome content isn’t going to sell a thing for you, what creating great content will do for you is show those that you are trying to affect with your words or your videos is that you are credible, you are trustworthy and you are a person that they should go to for advice.

These folks that are coming to your site – your targeted visitors – are going to walk away from your information with a satisfaction. That satisfaction that these folks feel comes from the fact that you were there to help, that you were the person that showed that not all online marketers are scam artists, that some marketers actually do care!

With this type of content people will return, you will attract a following, an audience and you will start signing people up to your opportunity or team.

Social Media and Targeted Traffic

While social media is a fantastic way to start generating targeted visitors to your site because many social websites like facebook show you what their membership is already looking for or are already involved with. Generating targeted traffic with social media sites can be done in many different ways.

For example…

…when I write an article or make a blog post, video or whatever I usually go to my social media sites and post links back to the article. I will tweet my content on many different twitter accounts. I will make a facebook post on my account and within many, many different fb groups.

You can also use facebook and twitter to post small bits of information and then post links to your capture page(s). There many strategies to using social media for generating targeted visitors and the limits of the methods available are based on your own imagination.

Why Generating Targeted Visitors To Your Site Matters

Generating targeted visitors to your site may be one of the most important skills that a marketer can learn to apply to their marketing and promotional efforts and it is my hope that you will continue to learn, to grow and to become the biggest success you can be.

If you are serious about developing a strong online presence and a strong online business then learning to find your passion with regard to the one thing that you want that business around may be the most important thing you ever do.

Developing traffic and generating leads for ANY business is not that hard, but if you do not have the drive to get out there and push through all of the difficult moments – and there will be plenty of them – then you will not succeed or reach the goal of being at the top of your niche.

What To Do When You Don’t Have Internet Access

Not Having Internet Access Can Be a Drag!

Not having your normal dose of Internet stimuli can just be a drag! Of course, not being “connected” can also have some severe effects on your online business so what are some things that you can do in order to stay productive and effecient?


The fact that you can no longer connect (for a couple of hours or days) is not the end of the world. Recently I have gone back into the world of plumbing contracting….yes, money talks and b.s. walks! While on a job out of town, I ran into a situation where there was not an Internet connection that I could get to – at least, not a connection that was reliable.

Rather than freak out, the one thing that you can do is to write articles and create videos. No, you can’t upload them all, but when you do find your way back to modern civilization you can. Even videos can be uploaded onto a lap top, so I don’t want to hear any moans on this one!

Second – Be Proactive

If you know you are going to the “land of the dead” in terms of Internet connectivity then you may want to create a few articles ahead of time and set then schedule them to be posted on your WordPress blog.

You can also post updates to your social media accounts using a hootsuite or linksalpha – I use them both.

I recommend that you write three posts and keep them hand at all times for just such an emergency. You will then be able to schedule these posts to go out over a week period – posting every other day.

If you are going to be gone for more than a week then you may want to write a few more and get them ready as well.

But I Can’t Answer My Emails!

Actually, you can. Although you won’t be able to see it all you can still check your emails with a “smart” phone (you could even write posts this way, but I don’t recommend it) and you can set up your “vacation” settings with many different email systems.

Most of us marketing online are employed with something else other than the Internet so there may be times when you have to be prepared. If you do have a few posts or videos out there for just such an emergency this will ease the pain.

Good luck, have fun and I’ll see you at the top!

Empower Network Is a Scam: Everyone Knows This, Right?

empower network is a scamI Didn’t Join Because The Empower Network is a Scam…Or is it?

OK, for whatever reasons that I have I still have not joined the Empower Network and the reason why is because the Empower Network is a scam. Doesn’t everyone know this?

Apparently not (and this might be a really good thing!)

For the life of me, I still don’t know how people come up with the idea that a particular business model or opportunity is a scam based on the evidence of a persons own failure within an organization of any type.

“Of course that business is a scam. I joined it and never made a dime.” – This is usually how the whole idea of businesses being nothing more than scams probably comes about…some loser that never learned, wasn’t willing to learn on their own or whatever the circumstances may be signed up to a business, never really did anything to promote it and wondered why they didn’t make money with it. Oh, I know, because this thing is really a scam dressed in biz op clothing!

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Empower Network is a Scam When Someone Doesn’t Make Money? That’s a Personal Problem!

Most businesses with a reasonably designed compensation plan of some sort are not scams. Yes, some are better than others and some out there should probably never be put into motion as a business in the first place, but this doesn’t mean that these business opportunities are scams.

And while I’m on this little rant – just because you don’t make any money with a business opportunity does not officially make it a scam….dork!

Now, with that off of my chest how many people out there really believe that the Empower Network is really a scam?

I guess I should go with a little bit of a review here and so…here is comes…

First: If the Empower Network is a scam then how are new people making so much money with this program?

Look, I always throw this out in many of my trainings – especially when I am discussing a business with a network marketing business model of some sort, but the deal is this: Making money online has very little to do with a particular business model or business. Making money online has more to do with your ability to promote and market you business to a market of people.

Scam = I Didn’t Make Money So The Business Must be Flawed, Not Me!

So does that mean that the Empower Network is not a scam then? What that statement really means is that there are really not as many so called “scams” out there as people would like you to believe. Just because a person didn’t make money with a particular business model or business opportunity does not mean that the whole business model or opportunity is a scam…it just means that the person talking about all of this needs a bit more training.

One of the gifts that you can give to yourself when it comes to the Internet is to learn how to market and promote your own opportunity online. If you have not joined a particular opportunity then maybe you should look at the Empower Network by clicking HERE to see if it is something you may want to check out for yourself.

Remember, you will hear people tell you that the Empower Network is a scam, but since there are people everyday that are receiving money and making the system work shouldn’t you really question their motives for trying to “save” you?
