How to Write Viral Content Every Time

If you run an online business, you'll know that there are things that can hurt your business and things that can kill it.

You'll also know that getting visitors is the lifeblood of any website because without visitors there is no business.

That's why lack of visitors is the number one killer of any online business.

Working online is a numbers game.

Only a certain percentage of visitors to your site will buy from you.

So the more visitors you get, the bigger the percentage will be.

So if only 1% of visitors are buying from you and you want to make 100 sales a day, then you need to attract 10,000 daily visitors.

But how can you do that?

The answer is by using SEO.

Search Engine Optimisation.

But you need to do it correctly.

SEO means finding the most searched-for keywords and using them on your website to attract targeted visitors in droves.

And the emphasis is on TARGETED.

You need to use SEO to attract those people who are already searching for a site like yours.
And you don't have to be good at it.

You just need to find the correct keywords.

And there is a website that can help you and it's called SEOPressor.

It has software that can not only help you choose the best keywords but it teaches you how to use them for maximum effect. It's a plugin that works silently as you write and it also has a smart linking tool and can link your content across your whole blog.

It's a plugin for WordPress so you simply install it and let it work for you.

And for a limited time you can grab a free copy of their special edition ebook on how to make your content go viral in 2 minutes.

While you're on their webpage you can scroll down and read their 10 steps to writing ultra targeted SEO content for your website or blog.

Go the the website now, download your free ebook and check out the 10 step system which works as you write to make sure that your articles and blog posts get more targeted traffic and rank in the search engines faster and more accurately.

This is a smart tool that does all the work for you while you get on with your writing.

I Don't Want to Be A Web Designer. I Want to Write

SBI!As you probably already know, I've recently spent quite a bit of time redesigning my websites to make them "mobile responsive."

I did this because of the latest Google update when they threatened to stop including non-responsive mobile sites in mobile search results.

This meant that if my sites weren't mobile responsive (meaning they don't respond automatically to fit the screen size they're being viewed on) they wouldn't be included in search results for people searching online using their mobile phones.

So I grudgingly spent a few weeks changing the designs of my websites so that they can be viewed correctly on mobile phones and tablets as well as desktops.

But damn it! I'm sick of designing websites.

I want to write.

If I was just starting out and knew nothing of web page design or how to run an online business, I'd use an all-in-one web design, hosting and online business building service to simplify everything and get up and running quickly so that I could get back to writing.

But I do know a bit about web page design and I'm stubborn enough to do it all myself.

So if you're in a similar position and there are non-writing-related things you need to do, now would be a great time to do them so that you can get back to doing what you and I love to do.

Writing.

Do You Have to Write Books to Make Money From Writing



So the question is, if you want to make money from your writing, do you have to write books?

And the simple answer is, no.

Naturally, being able to write and publish your own books is really helpful, but there are many people all over the world making money from their writing and they've never written a book in their life and they don't intend to.

For example, journalists make their living from writing, but they're not book authors.

Likewise, there are many other ways to earn money as a writer without writing a book.

I used to work exclusively as a freelance writer when I first started writing. I wrote articles and short stories for magazines and also for clients.

Mostly my clients wanted me to write online articles or to proof read and edit books that they'd written. And that was fine with me

Until one day, it occurred to me that if they could afford to pay me for what I did to help them, how much money were they earning from my work?

That's when I began to look for ways to earn money from my own writing. But I still wasn't ready to write a book.

I searched around online and found the wonderful world of affiliate marketing and began to earn money from writing articles to promote other people's products and posting on social media, etc.

It was only a matter of time though, before I started writing my own ebooks.

But I still do affiliate marketing because it's still a great way to earn money from writing.

And like I've always said, writing is numbers game because the more you write, the more money you can earn.

And writing marketing articles is faster than writing a book.

So if you want to make money from writing, you don't have to write any books because affiliate marketing is just one of the many ways you can earn money as a writer.

And it all creates a really amazing passive income.

Only Write Articles That Make Money

Writing articles that inform and/or entertain is great. But making money is better.

I know that there are the 'die-hards' out there who believe that writing is an inspiring gift, yada, yada, yada, but I have bills to pay. So my articles need to be profitable. Each one has to earn it's keep.

How to Write a Great Online Article

If you want people to read the articles that you publish online, then you need to do 3 things.

You need to hook them in, keep them reading and spur them into action.

But how do you do this?

Well, although there is no exact science, there are certain things you can do.

And here are the 4 main ingredients of a great online article:

1. A Headline That Gets Attention.
Your headline is important. It's no good writing a great article with a mediocre heading. You'll get far more readers with a great heading and a mediocre article. Headings matter. Make sure yours has a great hook.

2. An Intriguing Introduction.
Your article's introduction must provide the answer to why someone should read your article. Take a look at the opening sentence of this article as an example. It gets straight to the 'why?'.

3. Keep Them Reading.
Once someone starts reading, give them a reason to keep going. Write as you speak (WAYS) to keep them interested. Tell a story. Use numbers, bullets and subheadings. All of these can help.

4. Tell Them What to Do.
Conclude your article with a 'call to action.' Tell the reader what they should do next. Preferably, tell them to buy your book and read it for more information.

And that's all you need.
  • A great hook
  • A reason why they should read
  • Stories and lists to keep them interested
  • A call to action
Put them altogether and you'll have a great article.

The Parrots Secrets Way to Make Money Online

There's a website online that has made millions of dollars in the last few years.

It's a website about parrots (can you believe what a simple subject that is?)

The owner is a young guy who lives in India (although he pretends he is called Nathalie and he's from the US) and his website is bringing in over $400 thousand a year.

It's not even an incredibly well designed website. It's just lots of pages of information about parrots.

So how is the owner making so much money?

Knowing How to Write HTML Code Helped Me.

Years ago I took a course in web page design which, naturally, involved learning and understanding how to write HTML code.

HTML is the basic element of any web page, even blog pages.

Now I'm moving on even further and learning how to create fluid web pages, which means they adapt to the size of screen that's being used. So someone viewing my website on a mobile device will see it differently than someone viewing it on a desktop computer ( a work in progress so it doesn't work that way yet).

And it all started with knowing the basics of HTML code and how to write it, which is the cornerstone of working online with your own website or blog. I even wrote my own course on how to do it to help others.

But why is it so important?
