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.

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 2: Hide the Good Stuff

Today’s post is the second in a three post series aimed at showing you how to get more out of Twitter with far less effort. Click the following link to read the first post, which was about Tweeting in blocks.

Now that you know about Tweeting in blocks and why it’s guaranteed to increase your visibility, you need to know how to structure these blocks so that your followers are more likely to click on your links and come to your blog or affiliate site.


When sending out your Tweets, you can’t include a link to your site or affiliate offer every single time. If you do this, you’ll either be flagged as a spammer or your followers will simply learn to tune you out.

What I’ve found to be effective is to send out one Tweet that includes a link to one of my sites or affiliate offers for every two Tweets I send out that are nothing but words. You can increase your conversions further by taking this a step further and set up your followers with your “worded” Tweets. Here’s an example:

  • Tweet 1: I feel like I’ve been on Twitter all day!
  • Tweet 2: What’s your best Twitter tip in 140 characters or less?
  • Tweet 3: How to quickly and easily add 100s of followers on Twitter

By following this pattern, not only will you get lots of screen time in front of your followers, but, more importantly, you’ll gain credibility. At the very least you won’t come across as a spammer, but if you play your cards right, you’ll come across as a trusted source who posts relevant content and links, which is critical in improve your conversions.

Digg – Now Worse Than a High School Clique

Currently, I’m still a big fan of Digg.  Through Digg I’ve found sites that I check out almost every day – sites like Huffington Post, Copy Blogger, Gas 2.0, etc., so, I can’t say that I haven’t benefited from Digg’s existence.

But now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I have to admit, lately I have become less and less enchanted with Digg.  The main reason being, Digg has slowly evolved into nothing more than an online version of some terrible, exclusive high school clique.

Now, before you accuse me of being nothing but a whiner — you would be only partially correct in that accusation; I can do things other than whine — please let me explain where I’m coming from.


What do the following user names have in common?

MrBabyMan, diggboss, MakiMaki, msaleem, uptick, SirPopper, badwithcomputer, numberneal, zaibatsu, and insaincain02

Give up?  Well, go check out Digg’s homepage and chances are, of the 15 submissions, I think it’s safe to bet that five or six of the articles have been submitted by the aforementioned users.  And the worst part is, it’s like this almost every time you go to Digg’s homepage.

For a site that has 3 million users, it’s kind of odd/frustrating that the same 25 users have a pretty strong stranglehold over the homepage.


As you probably know, I run another site called Daily Fuel Economy Tip, which has grown over the past two years to have a pretty decent following.  The last three submissions made to Digg have all received over 300 Diggs, were listed in the “Hot in All Topics” section and were almost always at or near the top of the “most comments” section.

They also all failed to make the homepage and simply disappeared for no apparent reason.

If someone or some group of users are continuously burying submissions from my site, I would like to know about it.  I want to know not so I can go on some sort of vindictive burying campaign against said users, rather I would like to be able to contact them and ask how I can improve my site and/or content so that they find it “Digg worthy.”

However, because Digg treats this with a shroud of secrecy, I’ll simply stop getting my hopes up when my submissions cross the 300 Digg plateau.


I think this might be what bothers me the most.  Digg itself, as well as its “power users” seem to have this whole sort of elitist aura surrounding them.  They’re working behind the scenes, doing their little networking, pulling strings, keeping everything a secret from you.

I understand the idea of keeping the algorithm proprietary – after all,  you wouldn’t expect Google to let you in on how they run their business, right?  That being said, it would be nice if Digg would explain themselves regarding how it came to be that the same 25 users dominate the site.


There’s really no point in bitching and moaning if you don’t attempt to provide some solutions to the perceived problems.  So, here’s my shot at it:

  1. GIVE MORE DETAILS REGARDING BURIES.  Ok, so maybe Digg doesn’t have to go so far as to tell me who has buried my submissions, but it would be great if they would at least let me know how many times my submission has been buried.  I think most users would find this information useful, so in the future, I could avoid submitting similar stories.
  2. CHANGE THE FRIEND SYSTEM.  I thought the whole point of Digg was to set up a system so that the best, most interesting stories would make it to the homepage.  The way the system is set up now, it’s really all about who your friends are and who you shout to over what you submit.  This leads me to…
  3. DO NOT ALLOW BLIND DIGGING OR BURYING.  If someone does not click the link to the submitted article, they should not be allowed to Digg or bury a submission.  After all, is it really possible to tell if you like or dislike an entire submission based on Digg’s headline and brief description section?  Pretty doubtful.

So, that’s my beef with Digg as well as my solutions to fix the system.

On that note, I’m going to go ahead and submit this now, and subsequently spend the next 12 hours hoping it doesn’t get buried (which it probably will).
