Link building using emails

Get links from your users by forcing them to subscribe for your email newsletter.

You can find a lot of different strategies but, here are some tips:

- build your email subscriber list, by having a subscription form on your website. Ask for their name and email. Ask for as little as possible, but ask for their name to personalize their email message;

- send newsletters regularly, but not every day to avoid frustrated users;

- remove the email addresses of these who don’t read their emails as you don’t want to be reported for spam.

- share embeddable content;

- ask for their links after you became into a likeable brand;

Good luck!

 

Traditional Keyword targeting

Most of SEO specialists have been hired to build SEO strategy after website is being created. Usually website owner comes up with an idea to rank for some keywords that are not enough relative to website’s content. Then the SEO person needs to reorganize internal website structure, makes appropriate link building and most likely to include new pages with rich content.

This would be great to be done, but then the client says that he has a website, he doesn’t want any changes, he just want to rank for few keywords.

Unfortunately, this problem is common and if the SEO person and the website owner don’t solve it, the result will be almost any good ranking or unappropriate result page.

I wish you luck!

Take care.

Custom web design vs WordPress

What would you prefer when starting your web site – custom build design or open source platform such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, others?

Do you feel thrill when start everything from zero and transform a customer idea in live project, or you are most likely to choose almost completed web site?

As usual the right answer is : It depends!

And most likely it depends on the needs and price your customer has chosen.  If he/she has very tight budget and can’t afford more than $ 200 lets say, it is better to choose the easiest and fastest low-cost way to build their web site, using WordPress.

If your client manages expanding business, he will need a big, professional and functional web site. Not that you can’t do it with WordPress, but if you are a  professional programmer you can build it yourself, of course for higher price.

It is very easy to have something available that everybody can use (even your child), but I believe it is more responsible and professional to build custom script systems.

Local complaints…

Hi, there! Here we have a local complaint about Reach Local web services. From where to begin?

First we start with rude sales person who uses unappropriate words while speaking with future customers. They usually come to your office or house and promise you to optimize your web store or web site for less money than you are now paying to other company if so. They offer 3 months contract for more than $1000 but there aren’t any of the promised results usually. If you start calling them to review your paying plan or you want  a charge back, there isn’t any answer or even worse – they will enjoy the frustration they caused to you and they will laugh at your face.

Please, check other opinions on the web and DO NOT start dealing with them!

Take care!

Smtp.com – Emarketing Services and Enterprise Applications. If you start having problems with their services, there is no way to cancel your account! They keep our money without answering your phone calls and emails and keep charging you 70.00 USD per month..

This situation is similar to when you ask for a refund from Plimus. They also do no answer the email as have promised to you.

Shame!

Service rip off report

Ventura Web Design, Vegas complaint:

they didn’t build  (prepaid) web store for client and had been reported for this. Anyway this is a single rip off report from Vegas, NV  and may not be so reputation destroying for them. This company from Las Vegas, NV has no more unresolved complaints or rip off reports about their service. Here may be is a trusted company which works with clients all over the USA and builds their web stores.

I want to believe this service complaint is misunderstanding because of different people with different life experience. I want to believe every company that didn’t went right with it’s clients will change this social opinion.

Take care!

We have very frustrating information about Webservices Media, Automatrix’ s job. You not only have to pay about $1500 but you don’t get what you paid for. :( (( They crowned themselves for SEO Gurus but until you pay you won’t get any service from them. The problem is after you pay a lot of money you won’t get the needed help again. They also optimize your web site (if so) with keywords people wouldn’t search for ever. And of course when you start calling to get what you’ve paid for there is no answer and more possible turned off cell phone…

I am writing about such companies to warn you before you get lied. If you have any other good or bad experience with similar services, please do not hesitate to post your opinion here!

Take care!
