009 Outsourcing Backlinks, Changing Fonts, Sitemaps, SEO Writing and Buying Products

In this episode of Learning With Leslie, I cover the following

I first start out by giving the following 3 updates:

  1. I purchased the domain LearningWithLeslie.com, and if you go to that URL it will bring you to the section of this blog (becomeablogger.com) that deals specifically with this podcast.
  2. I also submitted the podcast to the itunes podcast directory, so it should be showing up there anytime now.
  3. I’ve designed a new podcast image. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Then I answer 4 Questions that were asked by Tai from TravelToStLucia.com. Her questions were the following:

  • What are my thoughts on Outsourcing Backlinks?
  • How do you change fonts in WordPress?
  • What are Sitemaps and how do you use them?
  • How do you write best for SEO purposes?

Then I get into the topic for today, which was buying Products online.

I strongly believe that there are two components to running a successful online business: Education and Taking Action. There’s a lot to learn, but knowledge doesn’t help unless you translate that knowledge into actually doing something.

As an internet marketer, I invest money in my education because of how important it is. However, every so often, I run into a product that overpromises and underdelivers. This was the case over the last three days.

So, I recommend 3 points to ensure that you get the most out of products you purchase and not get scammed. Here are the 3 points:

  1. If you can’t tell what it is selling from the sales page (besides a bunch of hype), don’t buy.
  2. Purchase products that are recommended by people you trust.
  3. Once you get that product, go through the entire product and implement as much as possible. (Don’t jump from one product to the next)

    I completely agree with your stance on BAD internet marketing products.

    It’s really a sad state because these products and especially their sales pages which are built solely on hype EXPLOIT the hopes and fears of their naive potential customers in the way which they are marketed and provide no real substance.

    Yet they continue to thrive through this exploitative marketing strategy. I especially get annoyed by these kind of sales letters because I’ve been an online marketer for several years so I’m completely cynical at this point, but I wouldn’t mind nearly as much how they go about hyping and selling these products if they would only offer some real value.

    And a few of them do provide real value and are worth their purchase prices, but typically it’s the same old story as you have described.

      It really is sad Paul. But yes you are 100% right. There are some of them out there that are high in value. I thank God for the ones I’ve come across that have really helped me in my business!

    Wow thanks Leslie!!!! I didn’t know if you would answer all of my questions and I am so grateful that you did.I was able to change my font right away, make sure I had the correct sitemap installed and do some internal back linking. You were such a great help! Leslie you ROCK! I’ll be calling back with more questions soon.:-)

    Great tips here Leslie. It’s amazing how many people just buy product after product and leave them all to collect digital dust. It’s a shame really.
