Hello dear reader,

here’s part 2 of this ongoing series on blogging,
one of the most fun and profitable ways to make money online today.

Enjoy and feel free to comment and put your own input too!


In every bloggers life comes a special day – the day they first launch a new blog. Now unless you went out and purchased someone else’s blog chances are your blog launched with only one very loyal reader – you. Maybe a few days later you received a few hits when you told your sister, father, girlfriend and best friend about your new blog but that’s about as far you went when it comes to finding readers.

Here are the top 10 techniques new bloggers can use to find readers. These are tips specifically for new bloggers, those people who have next-to-no audience at the moment and want to get the ball rolling.

It helps if you work on this list from top to bottom as each technique builds on the previous step to help you create momentum. Eventually once you establish enough momentum you gain what is called "traction", which is a large enough audience base (about 500 readers a day is good) that you no longer have to work too hard on finding new readers. Instead your current loyal readers do the work for you through word of mouth.

Top 10 Tips

10. Write at least five major “pillar” articles. A pillar article is a tutorial style article aimed to teach your audience something. Generally they are longer than 500 words and have lots of very practical tips or advice. This article you are currently reading could be considered a pillar article since it is very practical and a good “how-to” lesson. This style of article has long term appeal, stays current (it isn’t news or time dependent) and offers real value and insight. The more pillars you have on your blog the better.

9. Write one new blog post per day minimum. Not every post has to be a pillar, but you should work on getting those five pillars done at the same time as you keep your blog fresh with a daily news or short article style post. The important thing here is to demonstrate to first time visitors that your blog is updated all the time so they feel that if they come back tomorrow they will likely find something new. This causes them to bookmark your site or subscribe to your blog feed.

You don’t have to produce one post per day all the time but it is important you do when your blog is brand new. Once you get traction you still need to keep the fresh content coming but your loyal audience will be more forgiving if you slow down to a few per week instead. The first few months are critical so the more content you can produce at this time the better.

8. Use a proper domain name. If you are serious about blogging be serious about what you call your blog. In order for people to easily spread the word about your blog you need a easily rememberable domain name. People often talk about blogs they like when they are speaking to friends in the real world (that’s the offline world, you remember that place right?) so you need to make it easy for them to spread the word and pass on your URL. Try and get a .com if you can and focus on small easy to remember domains rather than worry about having the correct keywords (of course if you can get great keywords and easy to remember then you’ve done a good job!).

7. Start commenting on other blogs. Once you have your pillar articles and your daily fresh smaller articles your blog is ready to be exposed to the world. One of the best ways to find the right type of reader for your blog is to comment on other people’s blogs. You should aim to comment on blogs focused on a similar niche topic to yours since the readers there will be more likely to be interested in your blog.

Most blog commenting systems allow you to have your name/title linked to your blog when you leave a comment. This is how people find your blog. If you are a prolific commentor and always have something valuable to say then people will be interested to read more of your work and hence click through to visit your blog.

6. Trackback and link to other blogs in your blog posts. A trackback is sort of like a blog conversation. When you write a new article to your blog and it links or references another blogger’s article you can do a trackback to their entry. What this does is leave a truncated summary of your blog post on their blog entry – it’s sort of like your blog telling someone else’s blog that you wrote an article mentioning them. Trackbacks often appear like comments.

This is a good technique because like leaving comments a trackback leaves a link from another blog back to yours for readers to follow, but it also does something very important – it gets the attention of another blogger. The other blogger will likely come and read your post eager to see what you wrote about them. They may then become a loyal reader of yours or at least monitor you and if you are lucky some time down the road they may do a post linking to your blog bringing in more new readers.

5. Encourage comments on your own blog. One of the most powerful ways to convince someone to become a loyal reader is to show there are other loyal readers already following your work. If they see people commenting on your blog then they infer that your content must be good since you have readers so they should stick around and see what all the fuss is about. To encourage comments you can simply pose a question in a blog post. Be sure to always respond to comments as well so you can keep the conversation going.

4. Submit your latest pillar article to a blog carnival. A blog carnival is a post in a blog that summarizes a collection of articles from many different blogs on a specific topic. The idea is to collect some of the best content on a topic in a given week. Often many other blogs link back to a carnival host and as such the people that have articles featured in the carnival often enjoy a spike in new readers.

To find the right blog carnival for your blog, do a search at blogcarnival.com.

3. Submit your blog to blogtopsites.com. To be honest this tip is not going to bring in a flood of new readers but it’s so easy to do and only takes five minutes so it’s worth the effort. Go to Blog Top Sites, find the appropriate category for your blog and submit it. You have to copy and paste a couple of lines of code on to your blog so you can rank and then sit back and watch the traffic come in. You will probably only get 1-10 incoming readers per day with this technique but over time it can build up as you climb the rankings. It all helps!

2. Submit your articles to EzineArticles.com. This is another tip that doesn’t bring in hundreds of new visitors immediately (although it can if you keep doing it) but it’s worthwhile because you simply leverage what you already have – your pillar articles. Once a week or so take one of your pillar articles and submit it to Ezine Articles. Your article then becomes available to other people who can republish your article on their website or in their newsletter.

How you benefit is through what is called your “Resource Box”. You create your own resource box which is like a signature file where you include one to two sentences and link back to your website (or blog in this case). Anyone who publishes your article has to include your resource box so you get incoming links. If someone with a large newsletter publishes your article you can get a lot of new readers at once.

1. Write more pillar articles. Everything you do above will help you to find blog readers however all of the techniques I’ve listed only work when you have strong pillars in place. Without them if you do everything above you may bring in readers but they won’t stay or bother to come back. Aim for one solid pillar article per week and by the end of the year you will have a database of over 50 fantastic feature articles that will work hard for you to bring in more and more readers.

I hope you enjoyed my list of traffic tips. Everything listed above are techniques I’ve put into place myself for my blogs and have worked for me, however it’s certainly not a comprehensive list. There are many more things you can do. Finding readers is all about testing to see what works best for you and your audience and I have no doubt if you put your mind to it you will find a balance that works for you.

There are basically two types of bloggers in the world – reporters and experts – and some people perform both roles (usually the experts, it’s hard for reporters to become experts, but it’s easy for experts to report).

If you have ever taken an Internet marketing course or attended a seminar specifically for beginners, you have probably heard about the two different methodologies. Whenever the business model is based on content, and if you blog for money then the model is based on content, people are taught to either start as reporters, or if possible step up as experts.

I’ll be frank; you want to be the expert.

Reporters leverage the content of the experts and in most cases people start off as reporters because they haven’t established expertise. Experts enjoy the perks of preeminence, higher conversion rates because of perceived value, it’s easier to get publicity, people are more likely to seek you out rather than you having to seek others out, joint ventures come easier, etc.. experts in most cases simply make more money and attract more attention.

Most Bloggers Are Reporters

The thing with expertise is that it requires something – experience. No person becomes an expert without doing things and learning. Bloggers usually start out without expertise and as a result begin their blogging journey by talking about everything going on in their niche (reporting) and by interviewing and talking about other experts (reporting again).

There’s nothing wrong with reporting of course and for many people it’s a necessity at first until you build up some expertise. Unfortunately the ratios are pretty skewed when it comes to reporters and experts – there are a lot more reporters than there are experts, hence reporters tend to struggle to gain attention and when they do, they often just enhance the reputation of the expert they are reporting on.

Don’t Replicate Your Teacher

If you have ever spent some time browsing products in the learn Internet marketing niche you will notice a pattern. Many people first study Internet marketing from a guru (for lack of a better term). The guru teaches how he or she is able to make money online, and very often the view that the student gleams is that in order to make money online you have to teach others how to make money online.

The end result of this process is a huge army of amateurs attempting to replicate what their teacher does in the same industry – the Internet marketing industry – not realizing that without expert status based on a proven record and all the perks that come with it, it’s next to impossible to succeed.

Even people, who enjoy marginal success, say for example growing an email list of 1,000 people, then go out and launch a product about how to grow an email list of 1,000 people. Now I have no problems with that, I think it’s fine to teach beginners and leverage whatever achievements you have, the problem is that people gravitate to the same niche – Internet marketing – and rarely have any key points of differentiation.

How many products out there do you know of that all claim to teach the same things – email marketing, SEO, pay per click, affiliate marketing, and all the sub-niches that fall under the category of Internet marketing. It’s a saturated market, yet when you see your teachers and other gurus making money teaching others how to make money (and let’s face it – making money as a subject is one of the most compelling) – your natural inclination is to follow in their footsteps.

If the key is to become an expert and you haven’t spent the last 5-10 years making money online, I suggest you look for another niche to establish expertise in.

Report on Your Process, Not Others

The secret to progress from reporter to expert is not to focus on other experts and instead report on your own journey. When you are learning how to do something and implementing things day by day, or studying other people’s work, you need to take your process and what you do as a result of what you learn, and use it as content for your blog.

It’s okay to talk about experts when you learn something from them, but always relate it to what you are doing. If you learn a technique from an expert it’s fine to state you learned it from them (and affiliate link to their product too!) but you should then take that technique, apply it to what you are doing and then report back YOUR results, not there’s. Frame things using your opinion – your stories – and don’t regurgitate what the expert said. The key is differentiation and personality, not replication.

Expertise comes from doing things most people don’t do and then talking about it. If you do this often enough you wake up one day as an expert, possibly without even realizing how it happened, simply because you were so good at reporting what you did.

You Are Already An Expert

Most people fail to become experts (or perceived as experts) because they don’t leverage what they already know. Every person who lives a life learns things as they go, takes action every day and knows something about something. The reason why they never become an expert is because they choose not to (which is fine for some, not everyone wants to be an expert), but if your goal is to blog your way to expertise and leave the world of reporting behind you have to start teaching and doing so by leveraging real experience.

Experience can come from what you do today and what you have done previously; you just need to take enough steps to demonstrate what you already know and what you are presently learning along your journey. I know so many people in my life, who are experts simply by virtue of the life they have lived, yet they are so insecure about what they know, they never commit their knowledge to words for fear of�well fear.

Blogs and the Web in general, are amazing resources when you leverage them as a communication tool to spread your expertise because of the sheer scope of people they can reach. If all you ever do is talk to people in person and share your experience using limited communication mediums, you haven’t much hope of becoming an expert. Take what you know and show other people through blogging, and you might be surprised how people change their perception of you in time.

Reporting Is A Stepping Stone

If your previous experience and expertise is from an area you want to leave behind or you are starting from �scratch�, then reporting is the path you must walk, at least for the short term.

Reporting is a lot of fun. Interviewing experts, talking about what other people are doing and just being part of a community is not a bad way to blog. In many cases people make a career of reporting (journalism is about just that), but if you truly want success and exponential results, at some point you will have to stand up and proclaim yourself as someone unusually good at something and then proceed to demonstrate it over and over again.

Have patience and focus on what you do to learn and then translate that experience into lessons for others, and remember, it’s okay to be a big fish in a small pond, that’s all most experts really are.

Success in business is a funny thing.


Because often the people you THINK would be successful aren’t, and
those you’d THINK wouldn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of
succeeding often make out like bandits.

For example:

I’ve seen people who had it all fail epically as an entrepreneur.

Even though they had money to burn already.

A huge network of people to sell to.

An outgoing personality.

And lots of credibility and prestige (doctors, lawyers, etc).

On the other hand, I’ve seen people who you almost felt SORRY for
when they started their business succeed in a big way — even
though they didn’t have any resources, network of people, or

None of that mattered.

They had the right mindset and kicked butt.

The point?

In business the Davids often crush the Goliaths.

It’s not about “brute strength” or intelligence.

It’s about wisdom.

Having the wisdom to pick the right business is 90% of the battle.

And if you pick a business like CarbonCopyPRO —
http://www.earnyourlivinghome.com/thankyou — you get the best
of both worlds, because you get a system that does all the heavy
lifting “grunt work” for you — like personal selling.

Your education doesn’t matter.

Your credibility doesn’t matter.

And even your technical skills don’t matter.

(If you can check your email, you’re good to go.)

That’s probably why we’re endorsed by over a dozen millionaires,
have been spotlighted by Home Business Connection Magazine, and
even got the attention of Fox Business News.

There’s something I’ve been waiting to tell you about for

quite a while…

It’s something with the potential to help you build your
business faster, cheaper and easier than before.

But I’ve been holding off telling you until the time was

Well now is that time… the time for me to reveal “my

little secret.”

What’s really been missing in this industry for quite a

while is ONE place for leaders to come together to share

their value with the marketplace.

Yes, you can do that from your own blogs and websites, but
it can take a while to develop a following large enough to
build a successful business.

And there’s really no place where a brand new networker can

get started providing value to a large group of targeted
prospects INSTANTLY.

Well there is now.
It’s called the Association of Better Networkers.

And by the end of this email, it’s going to be crystal clear
why you should be the next member.

The Association of BetterNetworkers is basically a private
group of leaders from the BetterNetworker Community who have
decided to help others in the community achieve success as
quickly as possible.

Think of it this way…

Networkers join the f*ree BetterNetworker community to learn
about networking and how to build their business.

Networkers join the ABN to identify themselves as leaders in

the community and to provide the value, help and support
others need to be successful.

Here’s how I see it:

BetterNetworkers are networkers…

ABN Members are LEADERS…

If you’ve been on this list for more than a day, you already
know which group I’d recommend you belong to.

So here’s how you become a leader:

First, you have to work at it.

Second, you have to keep working even if things aren’t going
your way.

Finally, you have to provide so much value to your prospects
and the rest of the marketplace that it’s a no brainer for
them to follow you.

Becoming a Member of the Association of BetterNetworker
provides you with the benefits and tools to do just that.

Here’s the quick rundown:

Benefit #1:
You get instant access to “The Vault.” That’s the private
“members only” area of BetterNetworker that’s filled with
training (over 1,000 pieces) from the top 6, 7 and 8 figure
earners in the industry. It’s pretty much the “Fort Knox”
of training for the home business owner.

Benefit #2:
Let’s face it, the economy sucks right now. People are
losing their jobs and they’re looking for a way to take
control of their lives.

Starting a home business is one way to do that. And when
those people show up at BetterNetworker looking for help and
guidance to grow their business…

Well, being an ABN Member will give you some instant
credibility to set yourself apart.

Benefit #3:
Targeted F*ree Traffic from Google – ABN Members are able to
post content on BetterNetworker.  Articles, videos, whatever… Google
gobbles that stuff up. And other BetterNetworker members spread it around.
The more content you create, the more chances you have to get found…
and the results can be pretty amazing. Plus, if you create content
focused on a particular company you represent, you can even
get your own lead capture form to help build your list.

Benefit #4:
ABN Members help make the world a better place.  Each year a
portion of all Membership fees are donated to a charity that
Members will get to choose as a group.


Here’s the crazy part:

The fee to become a member of the ABN is about 10 bucks a

Do you know of another place to invest that amount of money
in your business that has such a huge potential for return?

Do you know of another place to generate highly-targeted

traffic and leads for such a small investment?

I don’t.

Most associations are pretty good at taking your money and
sending you a pretty magazine to look at every month.

It might pass the time, but it doesn’t really do much for
your bottom line.

The ABN is different. The Association of Better Networkers
is about giving you the tools you need to create results as
quickly as possible.

So visit this page, then join the ABN:

Join the ABN

I’m handing you the keys to the kingdom here.

What you do with them is up to you.

Join now…

Onward and upward,

Mike Dillard

P.S. One of the biggest challenges of growing your business
online is generating leads.  And with the slap silly
Google, it’s been harder than ever to reach your target

I can tell you ONE place where your target market is hanging

It’s BetterNetworker.

So unless you just want to make things hard for yourself,
then go over to BetterNetworker, join the ABN and get
started providing value.

Hope you will enjoy this AWESOME COMMUNITY!

Hello There…

I want to take a step back to properly introduce myself.

I want to let you in my world,

for it is my goal to have you better know me, and for me to better know you.

As I sat at my desk thinking about my blessings, I suddenly realized even more clearly WHY I do what I do.

I truly want to help people live to their life’s potential and reach their financial goals. Now to keep it real, money is only the means to do the things we want to do, pay the bills we need to pay, and give back in all the ways we dream of.

With that realization, I found it necessary to open up, so you can see for yourself how I can guide you down a path that can make some of dreams come true.

About Me and My ” Big Day”;)

I sat in my apartment sweating in the middle of July… not only from the heat, but from the realization that my twin girls had just came into the world.

Happiness and joy? Yes!…

But, I was also haunted with thoughts of new responsibilities.

Being a newlywed I was still wrapping my mind around being a good husband…

Now two beautiful girls who are looking up to me…

I began to think about the life I wanted to provide for my family…

Financial freedom, our dream home, private school, travel abroad, and all the purses and shoes my three girls could image…

… and of course some toys for myself… boat, Farrari, exotic vacations… just to name a few…

Screaming louder above all those thoughts was, “Man I really hope this business works out! We Really need it now…”

I’m sure  (Name) you’ve found yourself thinking this a time or two about a job or business venture you pursuing.

You see, I started my business over two years ago when I was distracted by every bell and whistle ( girls, parties, etc)  that came my way.

I’m honest… glad I did too…(smile)…

Point being I had no focus, and no real results in my business. I had to be real with myself though and admit that it was not the business that didn’t work, it  was me that wasn’t doing the work.

I need to make some changes inside my mind and heart.  ( It wasn’t until this past year was able to understand or motivate myself to do that)

It was in May this year that I sat in my office chair, looked at my dusty business stuff and asked myself, ” are you done being broke minded, and are you ready now to make this business work?”

I came across a photo of me cashing in coins at Coin Star just to get money to eat. But the sad thing is, it was my girlfriend ( wife now) that had taken the picture. I then thought, ” I don’t want this for her or my unborn daughters. I didn’t grow up like this and I don’t want my family to live like this either”…

We can talk more about my journey next time…

Long story short… I found my motivation ( what I also call my WHY) to take my business serious and do what I needed to do to make it successful.

No more excuses!

Are you ready to face your WHY and start taking your business serious?

Before My Twin Girls Were 1 Month Old,
I Had a $9,000-Day, and 2-weeks worth just under $11,000 in Sales..

Being from Italy, one of my WHYs was to travel back home business class a few times a year.

Its important to me for my girls to think of Italy as their second home.

My Wife and I and now planning our trip for this fall…

Its seems like a dream that a few months ago I was cashing in coins, now I’m taking big steps into a life of luxury…

Magic? Luck?… couldn’t be further from the truth… a few prayers to say the least…

Are you waking in shoes I used to walk in? Broke, $45,000 + in debt, car less, and cashing in coins? ( all this with a family on the way)

I’m talking real numbers guys…
Check this out,
from my primary business back-office:
(Can you join the same primary business?
You bet… a little more on that later..) :
Want to start seeing THIS when you log into your account?

I promise we’ll talk after I get it, and you’ll be on your way.

At that point, we’ll simply match your goals, to the options we have make you reach them

NOW,  if You want to Clear Your Mind a little bit more, about our community,
….keep reading…
You’ve been watching Juan’s videos on my site, you read about Jay K. and Aaron P.,
and these are the guys who made it ALL possible for me, and a lot of other people…
Jay and Aaron founded the community that is CCPRO today..
….and Juan is the guy who let me “Carbon Copy ” him… get it? 🙂
Well it really is like that, that’s why Jay And Aaron called it CarbonCopyPRO..
We literally give you the chance to come in, and do what a Pro is doing,
without any knowledge needed.
We empower entrepreneurs with knowledge to sell ANYthing, ANYwhere, to ANYone in the world….
Don’t have a business or product?
That’s where we come in again….
advising you on a fantastic, rockstar product line leader in its market…
*That allowed ME to reach the result I put in the title…and 11K in about 2 weeks.
*Juan to reach $25K+/month after only 90 days,
*And a Nice Group of Happy Entrepreneurs making around $100K Per Month, within our CCPRO community
(remember my reference to my “primary business” a few paragraphs above? You Got it, this is where the screenshots come from..)
We do have a great compensation plan by the way,
and this bring me to the OTHER IMPORTANT REASON WHY I do this:

I’m looking for 10-15 serious people, that will give me 110% for 1 year minimum,
and MY GOAL is to get them to $10k/month minimum.


Cause if I do that, I’ll make about $40-50K/month in RESIDUAL INCOME.
Residual= Without me doing ANYTHING I make that money.

So why WOULDN’T I teach you everything I know and everything I WILL know,
to get you to that level?

Can You seriously think of ONE reason?

So that’s what it’s all about…

Be clear if you want to be one of those 10-15 people,
be clear on your reason WHY you do this…

And the rest will come easy.

What’s separating you from me, Juan and the rest?
Time, and Mindset, THAT’S IT.

Are you saying what about marketing education?
We specialize in that, we’re first and foremost a Marketing Education Platform, so not to worry.
Carbon Copy me directly, and ALL of us indirectly to finally burn your bills,
your W-2s…. ANYTHING of this life you hate…

and Start a New One , Right Now.
To Your UNavoidable Success With Us,
