Today in the blogging era mailing list has a lot to do in term of driving traffic. There are many mail list subscriber builders some render free services while others render only paid services

Some of the mailist subscribers widely used are Ymlp, Get Responds, Aweber, Sendy etc.

In one of my previous post about mailist I have discussed the meaning of mailist and its important to your website . can read it here

Sometimes it is hard committing to paid services especially when you have a very low traffic. it may not be a surprise that at the end of a whole month of subscription you hardly get 5-10 subscribers that is if you are even able to get any.

This is why it is a good idea sticking to free services until your business grows then you can migrate to pro versions.





I have talked about YMLP-The Best Free 2016 mailist service for bloggers but today am going to discuss how you can set up free mail list to your WordPress website using MailMunch and the plugin .please continue bellow.








How to set Up Free mail list Using Mailmunch plugin



Download and install the mailmunch plugin to your WordPress bog.

After successful installation you will see a new window on your WordPress admin Dashboard at the left side menu click on it. How to Build free mail subscription for your WordPress blog using MailMunch Plugin Sent from Yahoo Mail on Android

Set the time your optin form will appear to your site visitors.

from the next option you will be asked to integrate an email subscription service like GetResponse and Aweber.

This integration option is a must , but if you don’t have an account, the mailmunch plugin will still saves your email subscribers in their own database and you can export it as a CSV file at any time.

since you can still save your data in your database if you don't want this option you can just skip it to the next step.

From the next step you will be asked if you want to continue with the free account or a migrate to a paid account.

Affiliate Marketing Tips to Help You be Successful

These 6 affiliate marketing tips will help you to be successful and earn an income stream that goes on far into the future.
First let's have some little definition of the word affiliate and affiliate marketing.

Image




What is affiliate?
A person or organization officially attached to a larger body.





What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people's (or company's) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.


Image





1. Join only affiliate programs that you feel you can trust. Get to know the provider before you decide to offer their products. Do your research, find the best relevant product, and you’ll enjoy a much higher conversion rate, which means more money for you. Write a personal review backing the product to help promote it. When you believe in the product, writing the review won’t be that difficult and your visitors who trust you will take that into consideration and are more likely to buy.






2. You need to spend time focusing on building your traffic to your website. That means you need to do your SEO work so that your site ranks well organically in the search engines. Make sure you are following the rules outlined by the affiliate and do not breach any trademark policies that merchant has put into place. For example, many companies won’t let you bid on their brand name.





3. Make sure your website has some great content. Customers are not coming to your site to see ads. They are there to find out information about the product and to look at recommendations. Use both text links and banners and see which work the best on your website. Make your review promotional.





4. Make sure you are honest and disclose the affiliate relationship. This is required by the FTC – you must disclose that you are being compensated when your traffic clicks on an ad link and makes a purchase.






5. Take the time to do plenty of testing to see what works on your site and what doesn’t. Don’t be afraid to try to promote your product using different venues and programs. For example, try Facebook ads and Google ads to see which work best. Try different banner placements to see which works best. Try different ads. You get the idea.





6. Take the time to get to know your affiliate manager. They are there to help you and should be happy to review your site and give your some feedback about what you can do differently to be more successful.






7. Be patient. It takes time to grow your affiliate marketing business. But once it is established and running smoothly you will be able to enjoy the residual income it generates.

And there you have it!

An inspired blogger is an enthusiastic, passionate and self-motivated writer, who has the ability to inspire and influence others with his or her writing skills. Their words and content are powerful, positive and impressive.
Here are some tips that will help and guide you in becoming an inspired blogger:







Image






1. Be passionate and creative

First of all, find out about your passion and the things that inspire you secondly you should have enthusiasm, motivation and excitement towards influential writing. Inspiration is subjective and can occur from anything, broaden your perception, think about how you can make a world see things from a different perspective or bringing a change in viewing at things and aspects of life. Think out of the box; be creative and innovative in your writing skills that will help in capturing reader’s interest. In addition to this, having an attractive layout of the blog may attract readers, try to capture their attention, come up with something imaginative and artistic.









2. Authentic writing skills

Produce original and personalized content, it should be free from any sort of copy paste and plagiarism and even paraphrasing. Plagiarism can lead to lose of readers’ trust and they will not be reading your stuff. Copying others, ideas, blogs, writing style and content is not good. If you are passionate about making, others inspire by your writing your content should be authentic and unique. Create your own writing style that differentiates you from other hundreds of bloggers and will attract readers to come again and again to read your blog or they will recommend your blog to their friends and colleagues.










3. Be positive and grateful

Having a positive attitude towards life and viewing different things can help in becoming an inspired blogger, because inspiration does not flourish from negative environment and thoughts. One has to have optimistic way of thinking, ability to look at brighter side, taking constructive lessons from bad situations and self-motivation towards improvement. Count your blessings, be grateful and thankful to the things given to you, and consider simple pleasures in life that way you will be able to create influential enthusiasm in your writings as well. For example if you are always complaining and nothing makes you happy your writing content will be consisting of such words and content. Keeping a positive perspective and gratitude reflects in one’s writing and it helps readers to unleash their positivity and inspire them.









4. Learn and grow and be enlightened

Observe and learn from your surroundings, there is tremendous information that exists all around you. Enlighten yourself by watching inspirational movies, read inspirational books and pieces written by great writers, visit places, learn about different cultures and talk to friends and different people. Being enlightened means that you should have knowledge about what you are writing, inspirational writing also required open mindedness and sophistication.
The more you learn and grow your mind will expand to neutral pathways that will not only enhance your writing but your life as a whole.









5. Experiment and experience

Your should have fun with your writing, content and articles, because some days you may be out of motivation and inspiration and some days you may be flooded with various new ideas use your creativity and intuition. It is not about being perfect all the time, writing is a way of expressing what is inside you to the world and how you do it and influence others is your art. Let yourself free, be open to criticism, and take it positively and constructively, because experimentation will enhance your writing skills.

Having a web presence is critical to the success of any business in 2016, so it’s important to do everything you can to drive e-commerce, whether you have a physical location or not. One of the easiest ways to drive e-commerce is by integrating an SMS campaign into your marketing efforts. Below, we’ll discuss five important reasons that SMS is helping more businesses than ever drive digital results:


image






1. Provides a High Return
Digital marketing, with strategies like search engine optimization and content marketing, can take up a lot of time and money. Luckily, SMS helps you strike a balance by delivering terrific results at a low cost. SMS reaches a large number of engaged, active users. The cost of sending an SMS message is extremely low, even in bulk, and it takes very little time to craft a 140-character message. Low cost and extraordinary results lead to a great ROI.
To estimate the return of your personal SMS campaign, take a look at this handy ROI Calculator.



2. Delivers Messages Instantly
When you’re trying to drive somebody to make a decision online, you don’t have a large window of opportunity. There are plenty of competitors out there and it only takes several seconds to find them. You need to make sure your messages are delivered and read as quickly as possible.
SMS is the perfect venue to deliver such time-sensitive messages. When you send a text message, 97% of users will read it within 15 minutes. No other communication channel rivals these results.




3. Converts At a High Rate
When it comes to e-commerce, conversions are king. If you aren’t converting enough opportunities, you’re not driving people to your website and you won’t make any money. Mobile devices are a huge opportunity, with smartphone conversions growing 6% in 2015 and show no sign of slowing down. Specifically, SMS has a conversion rate of 45% - seven-and-a-half times more than email messages.





4. Connects With Users Ready to Purchase
SMS connects you directly with your mobile audience, who are often ready and willing to make a purchase shortly. Take a look at these incredible statistics:
  • 73% of users take immediate further action after performing a mobile search.
  • 67% of people are willing to make a purchase based on mobile information alone.
  • Almost 20% of local mobile searches result in an immediate sale.
  • The average adult in the U.S. spends almost three hours a day on their mobile phone.



5. Drives Retail Sales, Too
If you have both an e-commerce platform and a physical store, you simply cannot afford to ignore SMS. Users love using their mobile devices when shopping in the real world, and you can use location-based marketing to send deals when they’re close to you. Considering that text-based coupons and promotions have an incredible use rate, SMS is the perfect way to take your digital customers and tie them into your brick and mortar operations, too.



Do you have any SMS tips or questions of your own? Make sure to leave a comment below!

Vmail is one of the best and upcoming email service provider for every young mind and will be of more use for students, traders, engineers, Even for our unborn children so what are you waiting for?

Image


In our post blogging 2020 we discussed on some little aspect of bringing more light to the Nigeria webmaster sphere and today we are proud of this wonderful development.

Nigerians have done wonderfully well in the areas of web development, application development, web hosting service and many other ICT related services. Despite these achievements, Nigeria is one of the countries with no indigenous email service provider. Most Nigerians are users of YahooMail, Hotmail and Gmail which are owned by foreigners. It’s only few Nigerians who have websites that make useof their webmail.



Unexpectedly, Nweze Ikechukwu and Njoku Princewill, who are Nigerians came up with Vmail as the first Autochthonous email service provider in Nigeria. According to them, Vmail is a web-based email service provider which offers top class email service to Nigerians and the people of the world. The guys who have been on the internet scene for years are the owners of Vent Media Organization , a registered ICT company in Nigeria which offers world class range of services like web development, consultancy, webmail solution, E-commerce and so on.



Image




Vmail is a web-based email client which allows its users to log in to their email accounts by using any compatible web browser to send and receive their email. It was created to ease Nigerians stress on looking for a reliable free email service provider and to contribute to the growth of email service in the world. The concept of Vmail was fully executed by Nigerians – it was developed by Razak Zakari and all the graphics was overseen by Busari Omotola Adeyinka (Tolagrafik) . It’s currently run on beta version and its final version will be launched later in this year.

The current features of Vmail are:
* Commercial – Yes

Report To Google About Problems With Activity On Your Adsense Account

Invalid click activity includes any clicks or impressions that may artificially inflate an advertiser's costs or a publisher's earnings. Invalid activity covers intentionally fraudulent traffic as well as accidental clicks.
Image

You can contact Google HERE

Basically, this is a way to tell Google if you think that something has gone wrong with your AdSense account, for example if you are being click-bombed or similarly targeted by malicious people or activity.

But you can just ⬇


  • Remove the Link Units, 
  • Remove the site from the approved list 
  • Post a "me too" message on the support forum thread, 



Then you can wait for Google to take action.




What does the form do

Image

The Invalid Clicks report form has fields that let you give


Your name, email address and AdSense publisher ID

The URL where ad code appears

Topic (select one of: reporting unusual activity, or predicting a significant change in account activity)


A paragraph describing what led you to believe that the click activity was invalid

"Data from your site, mobile app and/or YouTube channel traffic logs or reports that indicate suspicious IP addresses, referrers or requests which could explain invalid activity."




 Note
You only have 1000 characters for the description - but I'm sure that links to documents in your Google Drive (set to be avaialble to anyone with the link, of course) would be very acceptable.






Most times you will get a response like this one below

Please note that we may not respond to your message unless we find a significant issue with your account. and I would not be in the least surprised to not hear anything back.




CONCLUSION
You should not waste time reporting these invidiual clicks. They are very easy for Google to identify and disqualify - and doing to would make it a lot harder form them to identify real problems vs noise from issues reported via the form.




Happy Blogging

How to Register With Google AdSense

Definition of Google Adsense

Google AdSense is a program run by Google that allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to site content and audience.


The greatest suggestion I can give you is to make sure you know what type of industry you are looking to promote because, it depends on keywords and depends on the type of niche you are getting into. For example, if you do research online, you will find that there are keywords like Mesotheliioma and Loan Modifications that are getting up to $2.00 per click minimum because there are advertisers in those industries who are willing to pay ridiculous amounts of money to ran on those words.


Image



You as an Adsense site owner, can cash in on those keywords. When it comes to the promotion part, you have to find a way to get as many people to you website as you can possibly get in order for you to really rack up on the benefits.





Below are some helpful steps on How to Register With Google AdSense.


Image







Step 1
First you need to Visit the Google AdSense Program Policies Web page.





Step 2

How To Submit Facebook Page Verification Request

Definition of a Facebook page
A Facebook page is a public profile specifically created for businesses, brands, celebrities, causes, and other organizations. Unlike personal profiles, pages do not gain "friends," but "fans" - which are people who choose to "like" a page.




Your facebook page allows you pass information to your website or business followers without much streets and Also your Facebook fan page can be use to boost some unique advert on facebook to your proffered country or state with some little amount of $.



But due to lots of Facebook users we have some few guys who are misleading audience just by making fake accounts and pages. So Facebook Page Verification is an easiest and best method introduce by Facebook. Which make it easy to find which page is official and which one is not official. Facebook verify pages just by observing various factors. But the only question arise is will your page get verified If you have all legal documents ?. But the answer is not in all conditions. Only few pages of specific categories are eligible for verification. But we can submit request for Facebook page verification.


Is Verification depend on Page Category ?

Facebook pages are of various categories. It does not matter if you change your page category from settings will also change your page type. Just take an example if our zealmatblog fans currently have category of Internet Website but i will change it into Brand or celebrity. Now the question comes out, will Facebook treats my page like brand or celebrity ? But in actual it not like that. Just by changing your page category will not change your page behavior and not lets you to get verified. If your page is about celebrity and you chosen a wrong one in that condition you are seeking for verification then it not works for you. In short

Page Category Should always matches With Page Type.

So if your page is just a community page and by changing its category will not results page verification.
Facebook Accepts only pages of these categories.



  • Celebrities.
  • Journalists.
  • Government Officials.
  • Popular Brand or Businesses.
  • Method To Submit Request For Verification.


Automatic Process.

Facebook verify pages automatically only in that condition if the page is too much popular or about any famous things. Big celebrities, brand and other pages automatically get verification request because they are famous.
But for those who are not so much famous at this time or Facebook was unable to find and select then for verification then they provides some setting which help pages to get verification. In short if your Facebook page is in the condition or qualified for verification then by doing few settings it will increase chances of getting verified. I already explained about these settings in my article if you want to add please check out

How to Get Traffic And More Audience For Your Site

There are many ways to get traffic but it all depends on what you are trying to attain. I will not repeat the advice given by others as that is what you MUST follow in order to get free Google SEO traffic.

However, if your website is trying to sell a product or CPA, you might benefit from running paid traffic tests. I like to use porn traffic popunders on products I develop. This allows me to test different layouts, prices, how the price is displayed, call to action buttons, and all sorts of WSO that I would not dream of doing with expensive traffic. Of course the traffic quality is extremely poor, but for some niches, you can still actually turn 1$ into 2$ as the end of the day, but more importantly, find the best conversion plan.

Image


If this is not a good fit for your type of website, definitely follow the SEO guidelines and remember that content is key. You need to have a steady stream of content being added, preferably daily. Other than that, you can always try more mainstraim paid traffic options, such as adsense, which can be costly but very profitable and can be used on a larger scale as well. Most marketers look past paid traffic and only aim for the free traffic everyone is after, but in my mind, the point of being in business is to end my day with more sales rather than less, and often, using google for the marketing tool that it is with paid traffic, ends up being the best route to take.


A nofollow link is one that has had the rel=”nofollow” attribute applied to it, which instructs Google to not use that link when calculating the trust and authority of the page being linked to.Dofollow links, which have no attribute applied to them, and are used by Google in their ranking algorithm, are more valuable than nofollow links, however, a link profile with few nofollow links looks unnatural.You can see a near complete list of who is linking to your website from within your Google Webmaster Tools account.

Login, go to ’Traffic’ and then ‘Links’.


Backlinks affect search engine rankings more than anything else. The number and quality of them pointing towards your site will largely determine in what position your site ranks in the search results.You need to actively go out and seek backlinks. Your site will acquire some naturally, but if you need to catch up with more established competitors, and you want to rank highly, you need to be pro-active.



Just keep this list somewhere safe and follow them one after the other.

  • Focus on long-tail keywords
  • Start a forum on your website
  • Start a Facebook group that drives traffic to your site
