Re: Using LinkedIn to build interested audiences and gain credibility

Moore Income ·
I ignored LinkedIn for quite some time but about a year ago I started focusing on it more. It really is a good tool for building an audience and connecting with people with very specific interests. When it comes to sales, while you can get them on LinkedIn, some people take things too far and just spam people with messages trying to sell their product or service. In my opinion this is a waste of time and makes me even less likely to buy. As with any social media platform, once you start...

Re: Using LinkedIn to build interested audiences and gain credibility

Deon Christie ·
Same here @Moore Income , but once I realized LinkedIn's potential I started digging deeper. I find that the tool works well for attracting group members, and I use it only to send a welcome message to new connections. Automation can be a great tool, but moderation is really important. And with Linkedin especially one need to be extremely cautious with automation. Because not all automation tool content is accepted by LinkedIn. And may in some instances result in getting suspended or even...

@Brian Winch I read about your business a while back and was so intrigued by the fact that you built a business just from picking up garbage! I am super excited that you have joined the community here and look forward to learning more from your experience! I have bought and resold stuff as a part time side hustle for some time now. Over the past few years my job has been doing digital marketing for a small promotional products company, I soon plan to start providing digital marketing to...

It's just one of many tactics I develop and use to get converting web traffic to affiliate links @Moore Income . I'm a bit of a research junkie, and quite fascinated with the concept of making money online. I love creating my own path and put together new methods and tactics.

Thanks @Moore Income , must admit it was better that I expected. Actually the link in the video description is an affiliate offer. But also a membership I use to own the first two URLs in the video description. Because I prefer to promote that which I know for a fact works. I'm truly impressed by the two sites included in the Membership. Basically the one site is much like a live chat where the visitor is guided toward an appropriate offer. And the next is to a very well designed blog with...

This trash pick service works best in cities with many commercial properties. It would not work in a rural setting. While many large department stores or big box stores are closing down, they tend to be located in large shopping malls or town centers. There are far more small to medium size properties that are better candidates for the service.

Providing value is definitely key to being influential online. I really appreciate all the tips about setting up a solid social profile. It is so true that many people approach making money with a "get rich quick" mentality and that is why so many people do not take a professional approach to making money online.

Re: Let's talk WordPress plugins with a dash of Google

Plugins are the main reason I prefer building websites on the WordPress platform. They allow you to do add so many unique features to your website without having to write any of the code. Whenever someone asks me about starting a website, I always refer them to WordPress and tell them that plugins will help make your website do pretty much anything you could want your site to do.

Re: Let's talk WordPress plugins with a dash of Google

Moore Income ·
I have used All In One SEO in the past. Currently, I decided to give Yoast a try. Not sure how much I like it yet. I might ultimately end up switching back to All In One SEO. Have you used any plugins for comments? I have always just used WordPress' native comments but decided to give DISQUS a try. I have heard that Thrive Comments are also good but I think you have to use it with a Thrive theme.

I too started with All In One SEO, but strongly advise you to keep going with Yoast. Nothing wrong with All In One SEO getting started, but more and more pro bloggers (Neil Patel) are using Yoast. The Yoast SEO Premium is a little expensive, but an investment well worth the sacrifice (around $88 I think). I have learned much of what I know about blogging SEO from Yoast. Through the free courses they offer as a premium subscriber. SEO is about a whole lot more than the keywords, because there...

Couldn't agree more. Building recognition is far more important than trying to generate an income. With sufficient recognition the sales will follow eventually. And the "get rich quick" mentality have destroyed many dreams, that only ended in desperation. It takes time to build a Castle.
