30DC – Day 30 – Wrap Up

Scott Costello All, Blog, Internet Marketing 4 Comments

30DC30What now?  The final days of the 30 day (day 30 and 31) challenge wrapped everything up and went over where we should go from here.  The lesson really focused on going back and analyzing everything you have done to this point, and this is a key step before moving on and expanding your blog and affiliate marketing.  Ed breaks down the past 30 days into 4 main parts…

Market Research

Having a solid base is they key to marketing.  Making sure that any keywords being focused on will have the numbers to support your success.  This is like speculating in Real Estate.  Getting into a market because you think there is huge potential is like buying a house in a bad area because there are expectations that it will be an up and coming neighborhood.  This is not a good idea and can lead to wasted time and money.  Be thorough researching a market and take the time to find just the right keyword(s), it’ll pay off in the end.

Traffic

No traffic equals no success, plain and simple.  The 30Dc shows us great techniques for getting traffic from Pay Per Click, using Adwords, and getting free traffic by use SEO.  Backlinks are the driving force for SEO and developing a network of backlinks will keep your website on the first page of Google and other search engines for a long time.

If 200 people per day are not looking at your site, you’ve got a traffic problem.  I’ve explained in past posts how to solve a traffic problem as well as analyzing whether it’s because of poor content, poor advertising or the keyword(s) just won’t provide that many visitors.

Conversion

Traffic, No Problem!  But converting that traffic to leads (or sales) can be.  This is an art in and of itself, and the only way to improve your conversions is with trial and error.  Change wording, graphics and writing styles until conversions go up.  Practice is the key here, never stop educating yourself on propery sales techniques and remember, what works today might not work tomorrow.

Product Creation

The scope of the Thirty Day Challenge was to sell affiliate products or a product that you would develop yourself.  For our purposes, we want to get Motivated Sellers Leads so we aren’t selling a product but a service.  The rules still apply though.

Final Words

Understand your market,be involved.  Whether it’s foreclosures, probate, short sales or absentee owners, become an expert.  To become an expert you must participate in the market.  What I mean by that is…

  • Read up on state laws
  • Join local Rei group and meet people who are doing what you want to do
  • Create content by writing articles or making videos.  I can’t tell you how much this is helping me learn the Probate process.
  • Talk with motivated sellers and learn what questions they ask (this is great content for an article).
  • Just be involved!

    1. I will admit it wasn’t easy. There were many days along the way that I just didn’t feel like doing. Writing about it in my blog had a great deal to do with me completing all 30 days.

      I’ve got to really start pumping up the page content. My plan is to post a new article every week. I might even start placing current events there from stuff I pick up from the Google Alerts I setup.

      Keep at it Ingrid. For those of us who can’t get out of the house to advertise or spend a lot of money advertising, internet marketing is a great way to go. Only problem it requires a lot of work.
