This blog post is not going to get into the weeds of how to upload a profile picture, cover image, or the steps to upload a video. YouTube already has those steps. It’s easy and you don’t need any instructions from me. I’m going to use this first part of the guide to talk about why you need a great channel layout.
Search engine marketing is the practice of marketing a business using paid advertisements that appear on search engine results pages (or SERPs). Advertisers bid on keywords that users of services such as Google and Bing might enter when looking for certain products or services, which gives the advertiser the opportunity for their ads to appear alongside results for those search queries.
That’s a good breakdown of the different types of email services. I aimed this post at the large majority of people who would just be looking for a Saas service like Aweber or GetResponse, but you’re right that there are many alternatives.
Apply the principles outlined here and grow your presence on YouTube. Remember, it may not work on the first try, but continuing to produce high-quality content on YouTube can deliver amazing results.
The most critical step in B2B search engine marketing is to strategically select the most important keyword phrases for your company. If you do not perform this step properly, your search engine marketing campaign is destined for failure. When choosing the best keywords, it is critical to choose phrases that are not only relevant to your business, but also ones that are searched most often by your target customers throughout the buyer’s journey. Begin by getting inside the heads of your customers and brainstorm about potential terms your customers use when thinking about your products and capabilities through the awareness, consideration and decision stages of the buyer’s journey. Ask your salespeople and customer service people what phrases they think are most important. You may even want to ask your best customers. Then, turn to keyword research tools provided by Google Adwords, Moz, SEMrush, HubSpot, etc. to create a list of highly searched terms that will drive targeted traffic to your Website.
To make a direct sale – There’s absolutely no reason you shouldn’t present a CALL-TO-ACTION in your video and provide a link that goes directly to an order form. We’re actually shocked to see how few people actually do this!

Your best option is likely to be ActiveCampaign, which has a deep integration with BigCommerce & Shopify, plus a Zapier integration with platforms like WooCommerce, Gumroad, Lemonstand and more. If you’re using Magento, you can connect to ActiveCampaign via a tool called Revenue Conduit.
Logically speaking, as more people go back to your website for the videos or even to your YouTube channel, traffic will also increase. People might look for the videos on YouTube at first but as they find your videos useful, they will eventually follow the link to your website and that can drive more traffic. The secret is patience.
JangoMail – JangoMail is a web-based email marketing service for businesses and organizations of all sizes. The software features more than 100 email templates, email list filters, autoresponders, tracking for email opens and click-thrus, HTML and plain text messaging, personalization, unsubscribe and bounce management, email list hygiene, and a double opt-in option. jangomail.com
In terms of GetResponse versus services like Mailchimp and Aweber, we originally had four sites using Mailchimp and one using Aweber. While I prefer the general features and ease of use of GetResponse over these services, my own experiments also suggest that GetResponse have superior deliverability and opt-in confirmation rates – meaning you get more subscribers, and more emails landing in your contacts’ inboxes.

“The thing that really helped me the most was joining PAC. I tell people it is the best investment I have ever made…much better than what I paid for my Bachelors and Masters! I was going to pay for an almost $4000 Amazon Selling course last Sep, but decided to do some googling for reviews since it was such a high price. That’s when I found out about PAC which cost a tiny fraction of that course but with TONS more info and a super community with a great culture of helping one another. When you join PAC, there is a Selling on Amazon Mentorship Series (SAMS) included. I followed the steps in the Private Label course there and now have a PL product that sells everyday and ranks in the top 1-5% of Amazon’s Beauty category consistently. Yesterday I just put in an order for my 2nd PL product.”
Even though I still have MUCH to learn, I decided yesterday to take the plunge and order all my supplies to incorporate FBA into my business. I’ve only been selling (and shipping) for a month, but I feel like I can do this thing after watching the FBA prep videos along with Ryan’s 2014 step-by-step product listing video. Thanks, Ryan.
Some detractors of paid inclusion allege that it causes searches to return results based more on the economic standing of the interests of a web site, and less on the relevancy of that site to end-users.

On April 24, 2012 many started to see that Google has started to penalize companies that are buying links for the purpose of passing off the rank. The Google Update was called Penguin. Since then, there have been several different Penguin/Panda updates rolled out by Google. SEM has, however, nothing to do with link buying and focuses on organic SEO and PPC management. As of October 20, 2014 Google has released three official revisions of their Penguin Update.
If you aren’t yet using search engine marketing to improve your visibility, you could be missing out on traffic and revenue.

After the initial charge of $1.00, we will extend you a measured amount of credit in accordance with a payment ladder with credit levels of $50, $150, $200, $350 and $500. The maximum credit level is $500. Thereafter, the frequency with which we charge your credit card will depend on your account activity and the daily budget you set. The first credit level is $50 and we will charge your card three days after the end of each calendar month if your account generated clicks or each time you reach this credit limit. This means your credit card may be charged multiple times in a month. If you do not exceed your current credit level during the month, you will only be charged once for that month. We will not charge you if your account did not generate any clicks.

When the item sells, Amazon ships it to the customer and handles all the communications, tracking, customer service and they even handle the returns.

[…] It certainly is nice to look at your analytics and see that many people have subscribed to your list. But that is not enough. Once you’ve grown your list, the next logical step is to turn those subscribers into customers. Marketers refer to this step as “keeping the leads warm”. Essentially, you’ll stay in touch with your list, usually via emails, using Mailchimp or a similar email marketing tool. […]

However, like all things, email marketing is changing. Simply blasting out an impersonal message to thousands of contacts with little or no context is no longer going to cut it the way it might have in the early 2000s. If you aren’t personalizing your email campaigns, they’re very likely going to fall flat, and you’re going to miss all those potential sales that would be attainable if only you invested in the right tools.
As you collect numerous batches of keywords from different sites, you can do a bulk upload into a tool like Keywords Everywhere, which will give you a long list of all the keywords you’ve entered, with the same information. You can even reorganize the list to go from high traffic to low traffic, high CPC to low CPC, etc.
It’s recommended to find ways to present information to your audience through entertaining videos. Trying to rank these videos on the results pages can also drive a significant amount of traffic to your website.
“Finding PAC and implementing the strategies in the course has allowed Shane to quit his loathed, corporate, cubicle job only 3 months after buying PAC! We did all of this with a newborn baby! Our son, Easton, was just under 3 months old when we bought the PAC. Anyway, we cannot thank you enough for providing this information! It has literally changed our lives in so many positive ways. The best change of all is that we all get to spend our days together as a family. It was so hard spending my (Shane’s) time at a job I hated, knowing that I was missing my son grow up. I am forever grateful that I can now be at home with my family. (First month was over $1500 in sales. Month 6 over $16,000 in sales)”
Education occurs most often in “real life” by becoming involved and learning the details as time progresses. Although there are several books on the topic, some so-called “how-to” or “silver bullet” books instruct readers to manipulate holes in the Google algorithm, which can quickly become out of date, or suggest strategies no longer endorsed or permitted by advertisers.

Dayum Drops has such an engaging personality, he can take a mundane event and turn it into an experience with no script at all.
