I wasn't planning on sending out this video to you because I send it (or a variation) every year.


 
Then I realized there are many new subscribers to 
my newsletter who probably have yet to watch this 
video, and frankly it's one of the most inspiring 
internet marketing case studies I know of, hence 
required watching. 
 
It's called "food stamps to six figures" and is 
a great interview case study of a regular guy who 
went from nothing to making six figures a year 
selling a herbs based board game (random I know!). 
 
You can watch the video here after you subscribe 
by entering your email - 
 
 
Every year Jeff Walker teaches his Product Launch 
Formula course and takes one intake of new 
students. 
 
I purchased the course way back in 2007 when it 
was a physical home study product with CDs and 
manuals.  
 
Today it is 100% online and one of the few courses 
I consider mandatory study for all internet 
marketers. 
 
Jeff gives away this case study interview before 
opening his course, which is a great example of 
what you can achieve via a "launch" online, 
selling your own info product. 
 
What makes the case study especially compelling is 
that... 
 
- The product has nothing to do with making money 
(it's about herbs!) 
 
- The guy who did the launch is clearly no guru of 
internet marketing, just a regular guy who 
followed the formula 
 
- His system focuses on doing automated 
"launches" once a month 
 
- He screws up plenty of things, yet the results 
keep coming in 
 
If you are planning on releasing any information 
product online then don't skip this video, it is 
a must watch.

Sometimes you just need to make money. That's all that matters.

Blog Tips Newsletter by Yaro Starak

Sometimes you just need to
make money. That's all that
matters.

Here's a guide that can help you
find the topics that are actually
profitable online, so you can focus
your blog where the money is.

---------------------

Hello Irfan,

When I first started blogging I knew if I provided
value and built traffic to my blog eventually I
could make money.

In some ways, that is foolish.

I won't lie to you - not every topic CAN make
money. Not every blogger wants to make money
either, but I expect you have at least thought
about one day earning a few hundred from your blog
or even more. Maybe full time professional
blogging is your long term goal.

If you still have not committed to a topic for
your blog or you are worried that you won't be
able to turn a profit from what you are writing
about, I have a blog post that you need to read.

I recently finished reviewing an e-book called
'Desperate Buyers Only' by Alexis Dawes. The
book is about finding profitable topics and
creating short reports to sell to desperate
buyers.

Alexis has a system for researching topics that
can actually make you money and it has nothing to
do with whether you like the topic or not - it's
100% about finding what people spend money on.

This principle applies very well to blogging and
you can use the advice to find topics for your
blog that will lead to profit.

In the review I broke down the 'desperate
buyers' research methodology and explain what the
book covers.

If you are stuck finding a topic and money matters
to you, read this, apply the research process and
then just get busy blogging.

Here's the link to the review -

http://www.entrepreneurs-journey.com/850/desperate-buyers-only-review/

Obviously I can't go into as much depth in a blog
post as an e-book, so you might consider
purchasing the book after reading the review.

I'll leave that decision up to you.

Here's to your blogging success,

Why is it some blogs have a ton of comments while other blogs never receive any?

Blog Tips Newsletter by Yaro Starak

Why is it some blogs have a ton of
comments while other blogs never
receive any?

In this newsletter we talk about how
you can convince people to leave
comment replies to your blog posts.

---------------------

Hello Irfan,

I hope your blog is coming along well.

The focus of this newsletter is something all
bloggers love - comments. Unfortunately most
blogs, especially new blogs, receive very few real
comments from real people (everyone gets spam
comments though).

I hope, with help from the tips in this newsletter,
your blog will grow a nice community of readers
who interact by leaving you comments.

First though I want to quickly clear something up
and give you a little background info about me -
the guy writing these newsletters.

YARO - ARE YOU TRYING TO SELL ME SOMETHING?

I knew you would ask that question.

Let me be completely straight up front with you.
Yes, I am trying to sell you something but as you
will see, these newsletters do not focus on
constantly pushing product after product in your
face.

I want you to enjoy this newsletter based on merit
because you genuinely benefit from the content.
But you don't have to take my word for it, judge
for yourself as you receive each newsletter.

I won't attempt to convince you now and waste
space in this newsletter - no one wants to read a
newsletter talking about how good a newsletter it is.

All I ask is that you remain subscribed for a good
five to ten editions and if you don't learn or
benefit in some way, then please, unsubscribe.

HOW I MAKE A LIVING

I'm a blog trainer. That means I teach people how
to blog and in particular how to market your blog
to build traffic, how to make money from your blog
and eventually, once you become advanced, how to
build an entire business based on your blog.

Some of my information is free - like this
newsletter, my report 'The Blog Profits
Blueprint' (have you read it yet?) and the
introductory free training videos on how to set-up
your blog at http://www.becomeablogger.com.

Occasionally I will invite you to join my coaching
programs, offer you information and training
products that I believe offer quality information
and recommend services that compliment blogging.

All these offers are completely optional. The
reason I bring it up now is that I want you to
understand why I spend so many hours producing
this newsletter and writing my own blog, and how I
can earn a living from doing so.

Be sure to study how I use this newsletter to
recommend products and other offers. You can learn
a lot simply by observing my techniques and then
apply them to sell from your own blog or email
newsletter.

OKAY, SO WHO EXACTLY ARE YOU?

My name is Yaro Starak, I live in Brisbane,
Australia and sometimes Toronto, Canada. I'm a 29
year old male - with big hair.

I presently blog about Internet marketing,
blogging, entrepreneurship and self development at
http://www.entrepreneurs-journey.com.

I've been blogging since late 2005 and make over
$10,000 a month from my blog and over $30,000 a
month from my online business in total - which by
the way, is based entirely on my blog.

I've run several businesses, some failures and
some successes and I've bought and sold websites
too.

I enjoy tennis, yoga, swimming and...well, this is
not a personals ad, so I'll leave it at that.

If you want the long story (with pictures!) you
can read my five-page bio at -

http://www.entrepreneurs-journey.com/yaro-starak-timeline/

That's enough about me, let's talk about your blog.

HOW TO CONVINCE PEOPLE TO LEAVE COMMENTS

Let me set something straight right now.

If your blog has no traffic you will not receive
any comments.

It makes sense of course, but some people don't
see the connection between these two elements.

If no one is reading your blog then no one will
leave comments either. Simply posting great
articles to your blog is not enough - you have to
*market* your blog to bring people to it.

We will talk A LOT about marketing throughout my
newsletter, so stay tuned for that.

For now, understand if you don't receive any
comments to your blog it's probably not that your
content is bad or people don't like you, it's
because you simply don't have enough traffic.

If on the other hand you do have some traffic, yet
no one replies to your posts, there are ways to
stimulate comments.

Try these tips to begin with -

- Write articles that reference or focus on other
bloggers. You will get their attention that way
and there's a good chance they will come to your
blog and leave a comment as a result.

- Ask your readers a question at the end of your
article.

- Write about topics that stimulate conversation,
such as current events (think politics, news,
entertainment).

- Be controversial with your writing. Have a
strong opinion and others with strong opinions
will reply to argue or agree with you.

- Be patient. Sometimes you just have to wait
until the first person leaves a comment which
opens the floodgates.

KEEP THE CONVERSATION GOING

A while ago I stopped actively responding to
comments on my blog unless I was asked a direct
question. I really had no excuse for not doing it,
I was just lazy and working on other writing
projects. Consequently the average number of
comments on my blog entries dropped A LOT.

I noticed the regular commentators stopped
commenting as frequently and most conversations on
my blog ended very quickly.

This is really tragic for a blog and I'll tell
you why - it reduces your "Social Proof".

WHAT IS SOCIAL PROOF?

Social Proof is when humans take action or make a
decision based on seeing other humans doing it
first. It's sort of like an implied recommendation
- if other people do it, it must be good.

It's like when you see a bunch of people all
looking up at something in the sky at the same
time. You can't help but turn your head skywards
and see what all the fuss is about.

When first time visitors to your blog see other
people making lots of comments they are more
likely to decide there is something valuable at
your blog and bookmark or subscribe to it and may
even make a comment.

This is good for blog traffic. This is social
proof in action.

I was very conscious of always taking part in
comment conversations at my blog and consequently
my readership was growing in leaps and bounds. I
stopped and I noticed I hit a wall and my blog
didn't grow quite as well as it was.

I know a blogger who has a rule - she responds to
every single comment made to her blog.

Consequently she has developed a fantastic
community around her blog and her traffic has
skyrocketed in a short period of time.

Remember, comments on your blog are very
important, take the time to respond to them.

Blog Tips Newsletter by Yaro Starak



Your blogging journey begins with topic
selection, which happens to be one of
the hardest parts of building a successful
blog.

Don't make the mistake of choosing the
wrong topic...

---------------------

Hi Irfan,

By far the most common question I am asked from
someone new to blogging is -

"What topic should I write about?"

This is the first big decision and the first point
where everything can go wrong.

If you choose the wrong topic then you begin
walking down the wrong path and it might be months
before you even realize it and change direction.

Here's some common mistakes people make when
choosing a topic to write a blog about:

- Don't pick a subject just because you see
others make money writing about it

- Avoid writing about something you are passionate
about, but very few other people are

- Don't base a blog on a topic you know little
about or have minimal practical experience in

- Be careful not to write about too diverse a
range of subjects, your blog must have a focus

WHAT IF YOU HAVE NO IDEAS AT ALL?

For people who have no idea what to blog about I
tell them to write down a list of their hobbies,
passions, experiences, education and skills in all
areas of life and then take that list and derive
blog topics.

In almost all cases it's easier to start a blog
from something you have an interest in, so I try
and steer people in that direction rather than get
too caught up in the potential to make money.

I honestly believe that if you have traffic you
can make money, and it's traffic that is hard to
generate. The money comes easily enough once the
traffic is in place, so it's better to seek
topics you have the most potential to build an
audience from.

For people who struggle to choose between a range
of ideas I suggest picking one and devoting a
serious amount of time to it. You have to really
"throw it against the wall and see if it sticks"
before you really know whether a blog topic will
work.

Sometimes no amount of research, self reflection,
internal or external analysis will give you an
answer. Only the MARKET can give you a definite
result. You have to set a blog up and just start
writing and see what happens. You can always make
adjustments as you go along.

It's crucial to pick just ONE idea and not
attempt to start a blog about every topic you have
an interest in. If you spend your energy and time
across three blogs you will end up with three
average blogs. If you pour 100% of your effort
into just one blog, you give it the best chance of
success.

At the end of a three month trial period of
focusing on just one blog you at least have a
conclusive outcome, whether successful or not.
There is no ambiguity about whether you worked
hard enough and you can honestly say you gave it
your best shot. You can continue with the blog if
it appears to be gaining traction or move on to a
different topic if it didn't.

At the end of three months of consistent blogging
you also have an ASSET. Even if your blog doesn't
have much traffic, it does have three months of
content in it, so worse comes to worst, you can
sell your blog and recoup a few hundred dollars
and then take your experience with you into your
next blog project.

There is no such thing as failure if you actually
put something out there and learn from the
experience and sometimes the only way to really
know whether a topic has potential is to test it
on a real live blog.

CASE STUDY

My friend Alborz began blogging by creating three
blogs on subjects he enjoyed and believed had
potential to become successful. He chose -

1. Cars
2. Going out in his hometown of Brisbane
3. Windows Vista (when it was in prelaunch)

He ended up writing one post a month to the Vista
blog, one post a week to the Brisbane blog and one
post a day to the car blog.

You won't have any problems guessing which blog
took off.

Yep, the car blog.

Alborz eventually dropped the other two blogs and
focused his energy on his one main blog, which
became a massive success (last I heard he was
making over $40,000 a month from it!).

All of the topics he chose had potential and he
had interest in, but only one came out on top
because of two reasons -

1. He found he was most passionate about cars,
so much so that he enjoyed writing one or more
articles per day to his blog

2. The car blog received the best response from
the market - he built an audience

Sometimes you can't make concrete decisions until
you actually test your topic ideas.

I suggest you narrow down your topic list and then
start writing. If you have no trouble producing
one new post a day, then do it for three months
and see whether people like your work.

No one can tell you what to blog about, it's up
to you to decide. Just don't stay suspended in
limbo due to decision-paralysis. Nothing will
feel 100% right until you actually start doing
it.

Here's to your blogging success,

Alborz and the amazing success he had with

Hi Irfan,

 
I recently published two very interesting 
interviews with successful entrepreneurs. 
 
You can download them both at my blog now -
 
 
Jeff Barson was a successful artist in new york, 
who then entered the medical industry and today 
leads a million dollar online empire offering 
business and online marketing advice to medical 
professionals. 
 
This is a great interview to see how effective it 
can be helping offline businesses with your online 
marketing know-how. Jeff's making over a million 
a year doing exactly that. 
 
 
In this interview Olivier explains how he has 
been able to simply take what works in the English 
market and apply it in the French market. 
 
He's made over 15,000 Euros a month doing this 
with his blog and training programs, so clearly 
it's a formula you need to listen to. 
 
I know you will enjoy these two podcasts, so go 
download them now and please hit the share or
