WordPress Blogging Is A Foundation Marketing Tool: Backup Your Content

There are four foundation tools every business should be using as part of their marketeing strategy. These are listed on my site www.stevepohlit.com   I  have also  written detailed articles about these foundation tools. For example Click Here for an article on how blogs and video help your internet site search engine ranking. You sould be subscribed to Steve Reports for tons of information I publish that will help your business grow profitable revenue.

For your convenience the foundation tools are:

  1. A currently updated website, keyword optimized and with  contact information capture script with linked to an autoresponder.
  2. A blog that is regularly updated with relevant information and links to your website. You blog should also have contact information capture script linked to your autoresponder. Register at http://bloggingforprofits.biz  for free instuctional videos on how to do this. Here is my introductory video on Blogging For Profits again for your convenience
  3. Use short videos that you produce, topic and keyword specific that you post to your blog. Select ones should be posted to your website. Register at  http://youtubemastery.net for more than 20 videos that teach you how to do this for free.
  4. Enhance the relationships with your customers and prospect list with email communication. Use off line actions including; meetings, phone calls, post cards and letters.  This is why you want to capture the contact information of visitors to your website and blog.
Of course there is more and that is covered in the marketing module of my business consulting practice. My contact information follows this article.
BACKUP YOUR CONTENT
By now most people are aware of how to backup websites and most autoresponder companies provide an easy to use download feature for you customer database. My preferred autoresponder service is Aweber Click Here 
It seems most people are not thinking about all the content they add to their blogs and the backup of a blog is differenet than a website. WordPress Blogs, and I believe most other formats, run by adding your content to a database. WordPress based blogs all use MySQL database technology. Sounds “Twilight Zone” but it isn’t except for you are not able to simply backup your files like you are  able to do with a website. You must backup the database.   

Sounds scary?  It isn’t. Watch the video I prepared on this topic and I suggest you believe me when I say: “if I can do this …you can do this”.  Of couse if you don’t want to do any of this and have someone do it for you, I am ready to help.  For the video on how to back up you WordPress Blog Please Click Here.

How Is Your Business: Read The Amazing Answers

During a trip to my hometown Johnstown, Pa I had the opportunity to ask quite a few people how they were doing economically.  I was anticipating more than a few doom and gloom stories.  

I learned about a company that makes specialized lighting systems for coal mines that has doubled in size from 40 employees to 80 in less than four years. Plus they are still hiring.  New lighting technology has created a new market: coal mines that have closed.  Really cool!

I met an engineer for bridge systems in the Pittsburgh market whose main concern was being so busy. He was actually hoping for to be able to take some time off soon.  Then there was the guy who couldn’t say much about his work. In fact he couldn’t say anything because he works under an oath of silence in a place near Washington D.C.

Nearly everyone I talked to was upbeat and busy with their jobs.  Consistently I meet business owners who tell me their business is bad. This trip was no exception. In every case except one, what is really bad is their mindset or attitude.  Each doom and gloom story is attached to a business that has huge opportunities for profitable growth. But the owners don’t think so. When the owners don’t think so the results reflect what the owners think. I encourage every business owner I meet to get started with easy to implement, economical marketing. My recommendation is a four step:

1. Install or update the business website with visitor contact capture on every page.
2. Activate a blog with relevant content fed to syndication sites. Each item of information has back links and contact information capture form tied to an auto responder.
3. Use video for topical content structured with benefits and a call to action. Syndicate the videos, add them to the blog and select ones to the web site.
4.Using email marketing, and other action steps, get closer to existing customers and develop relationships with prospects.

While my marketing module is comprehensive the above 4 steps are integral to the module and will result in noticeable improvements to your business. Implementing most of these four steps takes very little cash but does require some time. The choice is spend your time on rational marketing or you can sit around and complain.

Introducing YouTube Mastery and Blogging For Profits

The past four months I have been actively developing and testing video training for business. The test market has been and continues to be Facebook. The time line was about 90 days from idea to the point of being able to conduct valid live tests.  This time line was mostly due to the time for  my own personal development and I was moving a growing number of subscribers along the development path.

During this process I realized many questions continued to “bubble up” regarding blogs and what I recommended. In response I have now developed video training on how to set up a blog for business profits.  That video series is new and not as developed as YouTube Mastery.

The Three Steps For Optimum On Line Marketing Effectiveness Today :

This is my number one recommendation for all companies and is what I work on almost always as a first step in any consulting engagement:

1. Website
2. Related Blog
3. Focused Video Posted To 1 and 2

You must be doing all three for maximum effectiveness.

More clarity on those in a future article since of course I recommend building lists and SEO content. This is an article not a book. 🙂

For now the following is an announcement I recently sent to over 1100 members of my YouTube Mastery Group on Facebook and included a reference to Blogging For Profits.

—————————————–

Welcome All New Members: Here is the latest video training. I stand firm on my position you will not find the value that is in this training anywhere at any price and YouTube Mastery continues to be FREE.

YouTube Mastery  How To Build Business Profits With Video 2

This is the continuation of the training  of  how to use what you have learned in the YouTube Mastery Series to help build your business. Of course there have been tips along the way. But now you look over my shoulders as I demonstrate how I am using video to further build the credibility of my consulting business.

Steve Pohlit shows two example of using the training taught in previous YouTube Master videos. The first two promote a business venture which is Dubli Auction Network at http://dublian.com The second is to help a client with marketing using video. The client is http://newhairlaser.com and the service is hair transplants.

http://dublian.com achieves number 1 position on Google search with video and http://newhairlaser.com receives 60 video views in 2 days worth nearly $300 in pay per click ads.

These are very successful examples and you can do the same.
