Perpetual Traffic Formula

Ryan Deiss has worked his way up to become one of the most respected teachers of internet marketing, and most of his valuable knowledge and insight – probably worth tens of thousands of dollars –  is available in the Perpetual Traffic Formula.

Perpetual Traffic Formula, Perpetual Traffic Formual Review, Perpetual Traffic Formual Ryan DeissThe goal of Perpetual Traffic Formula is to teach you about the three main components of search engine optimization (SEO), and show you how to quickly and continuously drive targeted traffic to your websites via search engines – mainly Google.

In this program, you will learn about how to properly optimize your websites to rank for strategic keywords, how to quickly and easily generate high ranking backlinks even from .gov and .edu sites, and how to make sure there is enough activity on your websites to drive it higher in the search engine rankings.

(This last part – activity – was highlighted in Google’s “Caffeine Update” because the powers-that-be at the search engine realized that if a site is constantly being updated and people are leaving comments, it’s probably an “authority” site.)

I highly recommend Perpetual Traffic formula for any internet marketer – beginning, intermediate, or advanced – who wants to grow their revenues and profits.

Epic Fail – Wishin’ and Hopin’ and Prayin’ for a Viral Video

Turns out you can’t manufacture a viral video.

Well, I mean, you absolutely can make a viral video but you can’t make it a viral video.

The other day, I threw out a hypothesis that I could turn a simple video into a viral video by simply asking my readers and the video’s viewers to Digg, Stumble, Reddit, Tweet, Facebook, email, and blog the video. Seems simple enough, right?

Turns out, asking your readers and viewers to do this stuff does have an effect: the video ended up getting about 5 times as many views as most of my other videos. The problem was, that still ended up being only 150 views, far less than the 5,000 or whatever that I wanted.

(As a side note – yes, I realize 5,000 views does not constitute a viral video. However, for me, that would have blown my mind.)

So, what’s the moral of the story?

I think I proved my point that you get a lot further by telling your readers and viewers what you want from them as opposed to beating around the bush. However, as has been stated many times before, you can’t make a video become viral, it just sort of has to happen.

What are your thoughts? Post your comments below.

Make This Video Go Viral – Seriously, Do As You’re Told

Over my time running The New Business Blog, I’ve given a lot of advice on how to make more money online. (While I’m no Yaro Starak or John Chow, I’d like to think I have been successful enough to be taken as a reputable source.)

Without a doubt, the single most important piece of advice I’ve given is to straight up TELL your visitors what you want from them. Don’t ask. Tell!

So, on that note, I’ve decided to do a little experiment. I want to see if I can make a simple, yet stupid video go viral, simply by me TELLING everyone that’s what I want them to help me do.

The video is nothing more than me TELLING everyone who views it that I want their help in making the video go viral. Now that you’ve viewed it, help me out by embedding the video in your blog, posting it on Twitter and Facebook, voting for it on Digg and Reddit, Stumbling it, and emailing it out to your friends and family.

Think if it as taking part in a 21st century social experiment. Look at you, you little groundbreaker!

Back to the moral of the story – the reason you tell as opposed to ask is simple – you can never assume that you have been clear enough with your potential customers. If you ask, you leave room for interpretation. If you tell, room for interpretation is gone.

Look at the following two examples:

Of the two, which one do you think is more likely to get you a sale? The first one, where I’m asking if you’d like to learn more while not giving you clear direction on what to do next, or the one where I tell you exactly what to do and what’s going to happen after you do it?

Sure, the second one might come off as a little bit pushy, but since most buyers have to be coaxed and told what to do, you’re probably doing them (and your bank account) a favor by narrowing down their options.

Ok, so, again, go back up to that video, and share it with every person under the sun in every way you know how. I want to get the video up to 50,000 hits, so make sure you do your part!

(How awesome is it going to be if I don’t fall completely flat on my face and this actually works?!?)

Tweets That Get You Clicks

I’ve been experimenting with Twitter over the past few months, and have come to find that if you know what you’re doing, it can be a fantastic way to get tons of targeted traffic to your websites.

Obviously, the key phrase from what I just wrote is “if you know what you’re doing.”  During the first month I used Twitter, I wasted countless hours and got very little traffic to my websites.  It was an incredibly frustrating situation.

Then, I came up with the following three Twitter rules, which I’ve since shared in previous posts:

  1. Tweet in blocks of 10 to 12
  2. Hide your links among your other Tweets
  3. Tweet during actionable times

These rules helped to increase my Twitter traffic exponentially, which has helped to bump up my Adsense, affiliate and marketing revenue.  Needless to say, I was pretty pleased with the above rules.

However, I still felt like I could get more out of Twitter, so I started to experiment the actual words in my Tweets.  After playing around for the past month or so, I’ve come up with the following headlines as the most likely to get your links clicked:

  • Who else…
  • How to…
  • Top (insert number here)…

Who else tends to promote a sense of community, and also can promote you as an authority source.  For example, I recently promoted a link to Life Lock on one of my Twitter accounts using the Tweet: “Who else wants to avoid becoming a victim of identity theft?”

In one day I had over 100 clicks, which is much better than the 10 clicks I got from using the “Visit Life Lock to learn about staying safe from identity theft.”

Obviously, everyone would like to avoid becoming a victim of identity theft, but by posing the question using a “who else,” I was able to get a ton more clicks.

How to is great because you’re basically telling anyone reading your Tweet, “If you have this problem, I can solve it.”  This promotes you as an authority, and will get almost anyone looking for your solution to click on your link.

Top (insert number) is great because everybody loves lists.  Really, it’s true.

So, if you’re interested in generating more traffic from Twitter, follow the three rules I posted previously, and follow my headline advice.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with how much your traffic increases.

Help Others Succeed And You’ll Become a Success

One of the most basic reasons many of us start to develop and run websites and blogs is to try to make ourselves a small fortune.  We’ve all heard about or read stories of people who were able to come up with some product or website and very quickly turn it into a cash generating machine.

While I don’t want to burst your bubble, the chance of that happening to you or me is pretty slim to none.  I’m sorry, but it’s a fact.

However, that doesn’t mean you can’t become a successful internet entrepreneur.  In fact, there’s a simple thing you can start doing right now that will essentially guarantee that you will get far with your website or blog:


I know this point seems rather obvious, but in the quest for riches and notoriety, we tend to over look this rather meaningful item.  No matter what niche your website serves – whether you talk about politics, money, dieting, marketing, etc. – or how crowded that niche is, if you focus on your readers, you will end up succeeding.

Three Steps to Improve Twitter Conversions – Part 3: Post During Actionable Times

Today’s post is the final of a three post series which will help you improve your conversions on Twitter. Click the following links to read the first post (Tweeting in blocks) and the second post (hide the good stuff) if you haven’t already done so or would simply like a refresher.

Now that you’ve learned to Tweet in blocks and how to structure those blocks to help you gain credibility, you’re about to learn what might be the most important Twitter lesson of all: what time of the day to send out your blocks of Tweets.


Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to send out Tweets all throughout the day, however, if you’re trying to get people to take action – whether it’s sign up for your email list or buy a product through your affiliate link – there are certain times of the day that are statistically proven to produce better results. Based on my experience, here are the blocks of time with which you will see a better click-thru ratio:

  • 11 am to 1 pm Eastern Time
  • 8 pm to 11 pm Eastern Time

Three Steps to Improve Twitter Conversions – Part 1: Tweet in Blocks

One of the main reasons I’ve been able to quickly and continuously grow traffic to my websites – both my blogs and my affiliate sites – is I’ve become a much better and efficient Twitter user.  It took a lot of time and experimenting, but I’ve come up with three very important tips to help you get more traffic to your websites from Twitter.

Over the next three days, you will be able to read about each of the tips, implement the them, and start to see immediate results!

TIP #1 – TWEET IN BLOCKS OF 10 to 12

As I’m sure you’re well aware, you’re not the only person your Twitter followers are following.  Unfortunately, this means you have to compete for attention with likely thousands – if not tens of thousands – of other people at any given moment.

I’ve found the easiest way to ensure you grab your followers’ attention is to send out Tweets in blocks of 10 to 12, spacing each Tweet roughly 45 seconds to 1 minute apart.

By sending out this block of Tweets, you’re pretty much guaranteed to take up some real estate on your follower’s Twitter feed, however, because you’ve given adequate time between each of your Tweets, you’re not being obnoxious about it.

Be Bold and Mighty Forces Will Come to Your Aid

I’m sitting here on my 12th floor balcony overlooking the ocean and I’m starting to feel a little bit antsy.  Not in a bad way (how can it be bad, I’m at the beach?!?), but it a “what are some simple ways I can get more traffic and improve my conversions” sort of way.

What can I say, it’s difficult for me to turn it off.

Anyway, I thought back to Marshall Wayne’s guest post, which got me thinking about one of my favorite quotes of all-time:

Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid.” – Basil King (not Goethe, as many believe thanks to Almost Famous)

This quote can help you become a better blogger on a couple different fronts.  In continuing with Marshall’s theme, writing bold and catchy headlines will certainly grab readers and, at the very least, get them to read the first paragraph or two of your article.

Next, being bold and semi-outrageous in your copy will keep people on the page long enough to actually finish your post.  Over the past decade or so, it seems like it has been beaten into our heads that we need to be as politically correct and down the middle as possible so as to not offend anyone.

While that’s certainly great, it’s not going to gain you many long term readers.  After all, there are probably thousands of other blogs out there that give a middle of the road perspective, regardless of your niche.  But, if you pick a side and (most importantly) are adamant about the stance you’ve taken, you’re going to strike a chord with your readers whether they agree with you or not.

I Got A Piggyback Ride From Obama!

I thought I would take a quick break from coming up with my own content, and have asked several prominent bloggers from around the world to guest post on The New Business Blog.  The first such blogger is Marshall Wayne.

Marshall is a world renowned entrepreneur and self-made social media expert.  I’m truly honored to have him guest post on The New Business Blog.  Without further ado, here’s Marshall’s post:

I Got A Piggyback Ride From Obama!

I really did get one, but it’s probably not what you think.

I’m going to show you a valuable “trick” that I use to get more people to watch my videos, read my articles, and for the search engines to pick them up as well.

To better show you what I mean, look at the following two subject lines that I might title an article or video:

My Thoughts On The Movie, “The Secret”.


What Oprah and Will Smith Really Think About “The Secret”!

Doesn’t the second one seem quite a bit more exciting?

Sure if you know me you might watch the first one, but many more people will watch the second one.

It’s just much more exciting.

How To Leverage The Crap Out Of Social Media

It seems no matter where you turn lately, some internet marketer is pushing the importance of social media (or social networking) for generating free, targeted traffic to your sites.  Whether it’s using Facebook, Twitter, Digg, YouTube or some other Web 2.0 phenomenon, everyone has an opinion on which site is the best for pulling traffic into your sites.

After spending some time figuring out how to maximize each of these sites individually (which is something I will go into detail in subsequent posts) I’ve come up with a little system in which I can have each of these powerful social media sites feeding off of one another, and ultimately drive even more free and targeted traffic to my sites than I could ever imagine.

Here’s my powerful little system in a nutshell:

Let’s take one of your recent blog posts; it’s something that you put a lot of time into, is relevant and useful to your blog’s target audience and is a post you think has the potential to go viral.  You’ve written an attention grabbing headline, along with thorough and entertaining content, and now you just need to get it out to the masses so you can sit back, relax and watch your opt-ins and affiliate sales go through the roof.

Take your great post and submit it to Digg, Reddit, Fark, StumbleUpon and Yahoo Buzz.  When posting to these sites, make sure to write attention grabbing headlines.  Don’t be bland, go for broke and be bold, funny or controversial.  Writing a good headline is the most important part of doing well on these social bookmarking sites.  You could write the greatest content in the world, but if you mess up the headline on your submission, nobody’s going to vote for your article or bother to click on it.

If you’re required to submit a synopsis as well, make sure it’s just enough to wet the whistle.  Make it a slight extension of the headline and don’t give away too much.  Entice the reader to click through to your site to read the whole article.
