The Top 6 Local Business Review Sites

Greetings.

If you have a business, online or off, and you want more exposure, why not allow yourself to be found more often by listing your biz on business review sites?

Local business review sites are great for SEO and advertising.  If you’re not already taking advantage of them, you should be.  These are sites where you make a profile and customers can leave their reviews. When people are searching for a local business, they find yours and can take things from there.  Here are the 6 hottest local business review sites right now:-

Google Places – google.com/places

Google Places is Google’s local business listing directory. It replaced Google Local Business Center in 2009.  It’s really easy to set up your Google Places listing (and free!) and it will come up in search engines, so it’s important to write a good profile and optimize for keywords.

You can send out real-time updates, post pictures of your business and take advantage of their analytics to see how you’re doing.

Yahoo! Local – local.yahoo.com

Yahoo! Local is similar to Google Places. You get a map, a profile and your own landing page. One of the great things about Yahoo! Local is that listings show up above the organic search results.

If somebody is looking for a business like yours and using the right keywords, they’ll see your listing first. Yahoo may not get as much Web traffic as Google, but it’s still pretty significant and well worth using.

Yelp! – yelp.com

Especially in urban areas, everybody now uses Yelp to find out where to buy stuff, eat stuff, and be entertained by stuff.  There are something like 9 million reviews on the site and it gets tens of millions of visitors each month.  In fact, your business may already have a Yelp listing without you even knowing it.

Citysearch – citysearch.com

Citysearch is the oldest listings site and it also gives you some tools you can use to promote it.  You can make special offers through your profile and it has built-in analytics to give you statistics about your profile’s visitors.  They have both a free membership and a paid membership that gets you additional business services.

Insider Pages – insiderpages.com

Insider Pages is a site that focuses especially on businesses for families.  Like Yelp, it has an urban and suburban focus. Users can browse by city or service and read reviews from others.  Insider Pages listings come up high in the search engine results pages for local searches, so it’s great for geographical keyword optimization.

MerchantCircle – merchantcircle.com

MerchantCircle is a new review site on the scene. It offers a number of bonuses in addition to your listing like your own blog, a question and answer site where you can build authority, and a schedule feature that lets you make appointments.

The really unique thing about MC is that it gives you complete control over reviews. You can even delete them!  This is a pretty big disservice for customers, but it’s helpful for businesses.

These sites are user created, which means that customers can basically create your profile by leaving reviews.  What this means is that even if you’re not using these sites, you might already have a listing on them.

Each site gives you the option of claiming your listing and taking control of it.  I suggest you do it right away!

“Pay-Per Click” Ad Campaigns: Earn More by Spending Less

What is “Pay-Per Click”?   “Pay-Per Click”  is an easy to understand
advertising strategy.  There are around 300 million searches at major search engines everyday.  This accounts for 80% of internet traffic.

Placing your websites on these search engines is very important in
reaching as many potential customers as possible.  But in order to be
seen and clicked most frequently, your website should be viewed at
the top of the search list.  Most people only reach up to the third
page of a search engine so the lower your rank, the lesser the
chance your site will be clicked.

Search engine optimization or SEO is the hottest way to drive
targeted traffic to your website.  Maximizing the benefits of a well
optimized website will yield lots of earnings for the marketer.

However, optimizing your site might cost you thousands of dollars if
you are not skilled in this area.

But to tell you the truth, you can essentially get information on
low cost SEO anywhere on the Internet.  But only a few really show
you how to work out an affordable search engine optimization
endeavor.

In “Pay-Per Click” advertising, you pay to be always visible on the internet.  You select keywords or key phrases about your website, and the highest bidder ranks the best.  There is no upfront cost.  You only pay after a visitor clicks your link.  This is why it is called
“Pay-Per Click”.

Everyday millions of people around the world click on Pay-Per Click
Advertising Campaigns.  With the booming internet industry and ever growing online businesses, an ad of virtually anybody on the planet can be seen on the internet, anywhere in the world, and for less than you would have imagined.

The “Pay-Per Click” advertising campaign is the premier growth area
in online marketing
.  Last year, an estimated $741.2 million was
spent on “Pay-Per Click” advertising.  The usual ‘organic’ search
engine optimization can take weeks or even months to produce
results.  “Pay-Per Click” advertising can attract customers in an
instant.  Why? Because, this cutting edge ad campaign can be placed
on any website and can be viewed by potential online customers,
anywhere, anytime and all the time.  The only challenge is placing
the ads on proper websites that will attract possible customers for
a specific product or services.

“Pay-Per Click” advertising campaigns attract the right consumers at
the shortest possible time.  This is the most cost effective way of
marketing products or services.  You can also monitor the customers
who visit your site, what they are looking for and what they are
buying.  With the right creativity in using the right search-phrases,
we can direct the right people who are willing to do business with
us.

“Pay-Per Click” advertising can easily be managed 24 hours per day
and 7 days a week through the internet.  This allows you to improve
the campaign strategy by effectively responding to the activities of
both customers and competitors.

So what are you waiting for?  “Pay-Per Click” now and let your
business take the fast route to success.

Plus, it doesn’t need to cost alot!

The Evolution of the Extreme Robotic Cash Dragons?!

Greetings.

Today I’m looking at two ingenious programs that are still in prelaunch and threaten to take online advertising to another level.  They both work on the concept of automation of our advertising efforts and, for what they are said to accomplish, are very reasonably priced indeed.

One is Extreme Cash Robot, an “Automated Internet Marketing Machine” (ECR), by Max Stiegemeier.  The other, The Dragon Killers, “The Most Powerful Money Making Website on Earth” (TDK), by Paul Darby.

They both charge an initial fee and then monthly subscriptions – but ONLY after launch!  For those joining prior to launch, all future monthly installments will be waived.  This is a fantastic incentive for marketers who can make a decision and act on it quickly.  But what do we get for the initial fee?

ECR is a new automated advertising robot that advertises ANY website
on 100% autopilot, 24 hours a day, and pays recurring $150 commissions to affiliates.  It now costs $298.

The Robot joins social media sites, writes articles, contributes to
blog posts etc, etc, etc – all on behalf of members’ websites!  And there’s a promise of free membership to Max’s $1000 program for those who activate their Robots prior to the launch date.

TDK is a very powerful marketing, relationship, JV, list building and selling center that will show your stuff in every person’s website that you refer, that the company refers to you and that the advertising campaigns sign up for you.  Therefore, you profit from alot more than just your own efforts.

TDK is a fully automatic system, easy to set up (even for a techno-novice like me);  there’s a one time fee of $197 and you own it (the monthly fees are avoided if upgraded before launch)!  It pays recurring $100 commissions to your personal account from your own payment button on your site.  It has a downline builder, a JV marketer, a three million targeted email solo with your link in a rotator!

The Verdicts?

I consider that everyone with a website should want to get their hands on these magnificent creations and so both programs will virtually sell themselves in true robotic fashion!

All powerful stuff, I’d say.  Online marketing is certainly getting more exciting!

Talk soon.

Product Review: Epic Traffic Boss

Greetings.
I’m always on the look out for good online advertising sources and I think I’ve found another one.

Epic Traffic Boss is a new site that says it guarantees more CONVERTING web visitors and online advertising with very little effort or cost.  So I decided to put it to the test…

My first impression was the site looks professional and clean, with an attractive look and feel.  It is easy to read and understand.  Joining the site was easy and painless–they do offer 2 upgrade options but they are not required to gain the benefits.

The Members Area is very well laid out and intuitive–I could figure out what to do after only a few minutes and was able to get up and running in less than 5 minutes.
Inside the site, you create links and ads–the links you simply enter any URL links you use into the generator and it transforms them into “Epic Traffic Boss” links.  You create ads for anything you want to promote using the Epic Traffic Boss Ad Generator, which is very easy to use.  You can create as many links and as many ads as you like.  And they are organized in a logical way–links are displayed in the order you create them but also your 5 most recent links appear on the main page for quick reference.
Also, since the link generator is the tool you’ll use most, it is also right at the top of the main page when you login.  Very smart!
After you’ve created at least 1 link and 1 ad you can start to generate traffic.  Just use and promote the new Epic Traffic Boss link instead of the original source link you had.  Every time the Epic Traffic Boss link is clicked, the page loads followed by a cool slide-up ad window at the bottom.
It displays an ad PLUS an image with your affiliate link that goes back to Epic Traffic Boss.  So if anyone clicks the Epic Traffic Boss image they see the site, and if they signup they become your referral.  It’s a great viral feature because you can build referrals without even trying to just by using the site.
Now every time the ad window displays (your Epic Traffic Boss links get clicked) you earn credits that get YOUR ad displayed in the ad windows when other members’ links get clicked.  So the more clicks, the more times your ads get displayed.
And this works virally–meaning as you make referrals into Epic Traffic Boss (either by promoting it or just using it and visitors click the Epic Traffic Boss image on the ad window to join) you also earn ad credits on THEIR link clicks.  And this works up to 5 levels deep.  So you can create a massive amount of free ad views and web traffic by referring others to Epic Traffic Boss also.
I didn’t get to test the full effect of a big downline yet (I just got the tool) but I can tell you the rest of the site works exactly as stated–my links got clicked, I earned credits, and my ads got displayed.
Epic Traffic Boss even tracked my results so I know how many clicks and how many ad displays.  That was an impressive unadvertised extra feature.
There is one more benefit and feature which might be the best of them all–downline emailing.  You can email your downline with offers, promotions, or whatever you like, and here is where Epic Traffic Boss really shines.  They took time to make the emailing often enough that it’s valuable as a user, but no so often that it’s a burden to your downline.  But the best part about this feature (and actually the credit earning too) is that it tells you exactly how long until you can mail again.  Now THAT’s cool.

Overall I have to say I am impressed with Epic Traffic Boss.  It is simple yet powerful, and delivers on its promises.
Highly recommended to anyone who wants to increase traffic and advertising.

See it and join here: Epic Traffic Boss.
