Good Morning NOLA!  Rise and shine! I do see the sun but looks like a partly cloudy day on the chart for today.  Having said that don’t be fooled, it  is cold out there!  Don’t leave home without your coat.  There is only a ten percent chance of rain so I think you are safe without the umbrella for now. It’s not too bad in the car out of the wind. I am spending my morning reading to a headstart class.  I’m not sure who enjoys it more, me or them. What will you do today? I am told that the number one is the number of illumination.  With all these ones in the date today I bet there will be plenty of illumination going on.  Bundle up and get out there to enjoy your day in this beautiful city!  Whether your plan is to go to work, take a walk, run errands or whatever it may be, do it now .  According to the New Orleans weather 10 day forecast the weekend might not be so great. Check back tomorrow and every day for an update on what is happening weatherwise in the Big Easy.

Learn How to Blogging for Cash

There are two major types of business models that entrepreneurs use to blogging for cash. The first and most common way to turn a blog into a profit making machine is to sell advertising to different companies and brands who want to reach that blog’s readers. The second kind of blogging for cash is one that helps a single brand improve its image by creating positive associations between the blog and the product in the mind of consumers. Both kinds of blogs can make a lot of money, especially if the creator has a keen mind for marketing.

If you are blogging for cash with the goal of selling advertising, there are two basic ways that you can go about recruiting sponsors who want to put ads on your site; you can let someone else do all of the legwork, or you can do the work yourself and keep all of the revenue. Within the first group, many people blogging for cash by selling space through Google’s AdSense program. The advantages of this program are numerous, as it requires very little effort on the part of the blogger or webmaster to begin raking in profits. However, most people discover that they make less money through this method than they had hoped that their blog would earn.

Selling advertising directly to companies who want to put banner ads or sponsored links on your blog can take quite a bit of time, but it is often fairly lucrative. If you have a lot of contacts in industries that are related to the topic of your blog, you may want to try to go this route. People who have a strong background in sales and are experienced at pitching proposals can make quite a bit of money by renting blog space to interested companies. The most serious problem with this model is that you often have to build quite a sizable readership before you can attract advertisers, which can mean that you have to do several months of work before you start to blogging for cash.

As blogging for cash becomes a more and more lucrative business, a lot of established companies are considering how they can get into the action. One way that companies are capitalizing on the blog movement is by having blogs that provide a kind of friendly face for their corporation. Often, a company will employ an established blogger to create a weblog designed specifically to appeal to that company’s customers and to create positive associations with the brand in consumers’ minds. More than one writer who never even dreamed that he or she could blogging for cash has been approached by a company and offered quite a pretty penny for this kind of gig.

Since there is so much information on the internet, how has that affected the book publishing business?

I know that when the Xerox machine came into use, it was very bad for the music publishing business. Therefore, I am wondering about books of all kinds being affected by such widespread use of the internet, especially since there are constant efforts at upgrading the information.

Ta!

Have a look at the FT and the Guardian, I think you’ll find it has allowed publishers to come closer to their customers saving the costs of mediators, it has allowed for products (particularly journals and other professional and higher education materials) to be more customised and has allowed publishers to make higher profits due to less stockage and printed paper costs. I think you’ll also find 3 school education publishers are currently on sale because they have not been able to keep up with the ebusiness trend, as their market does not allow them to.
I don’t think it has affected print trade much as people still like to read a book or a newspaper first hand and be able to put it aside and come back to it whenever. But check WHS Smith Story and the Independent books store stories … a bit sad. Check the Pearson Story for the .com fiasco within the FT and have a look at the AMAZON story.

Internet Marketing :ways to Build Your Market Through Blogging

Blogging is a concept that started in the late 90s. It used to be a way to comment on existing webpage, an opportunity for visitors and readers to react or voice out one’s opinion on the said page. For more detail go to: www.the-30-minute-marketing-miracle.com. What started out as a single-sentence commentary has evolved into pages of personal take on just about anything and everything under the sun. As it continues to move forward, online advertising has tapped into the potential of blogs. Here are 5 reasons why you should use blogging as an Internet marketing tool.

Blogging is easy and simple. The simplest way to get your piece on the net is through blogging. No skills are necessary… an average adult can read and type, or at least click a mouse. It’s like having a virtual piece of paper just writing about your ideas, experiences, or new products, and hope that the truth behind your articles comes out and entices your reader to also try your product. If you have a PC and an Internet connection (who doesn’t?) then you can begin blogging and advertising.

Blogging is authentic. In this day and age where advertising saturates our lives, we question the credibility of promoters’ claims. However, in blogs, real people share their real-life experiences, unscathed by paid advertising. Reading blogs about first-hand product use is like talking to people about their first-hand experience. You are more ready to believe the comments and feedback of “normal” everyday users, and definitely want to buy a tried and tested product.

Blogging is free. Because blogging is yet to be proven as a mainstream online advertising media, most sites see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free. Any opportunity for free web time is definitely a bonus especially to businesses that are starting up and have little capital to spend on advertising. For more detail go to: www.ultimate-internet-marketing-tricks.com.Needless to say, paid blog pages can generate more income for your seriously growing business.

Blogging builds credibility. As you gain more experience writing your experiences on a particular product or industry, your readers come to realize that they can depend on your posts for their own information needs. As such, you become an expert on it and more readers visit your site and more blogger link to your blogs. As companies and professional organizations notice the growth of your readership base, they may soon get in touch with you for advertising on your blog page, or make you an affiliate, which pays for every referral generated from your blog site.

Blogging builds your market. Unless you are a Hollywood star, chances are, only your friends and family reads your posts. Look into the following ways to build your market through blogging:

-By using your e-mail. Today, blogging is fast surpassing the popularity of e-mail in quickly and effectively reaching and expanding into a market. In this age of speed and quick access, logging in and downloading e-mail is simply taking longer than clicking into a blog site. Let them explore your site by using a short e-mail message as a teaser to your blog site. If your e-mail is on an entirely different subject, use your e-mail signature to give a link to the site.

-By using subscription. An easy way to get your readers e-mail is to give them an opportunity to subscribe to your blog. Keep some exclusive information for your subscribers to entice readers to subscribe and give their e-mail address. Just be responsible in using their e-mail address, as the last thing you want is a comment on your blog that you are a spammer.
