You will find all the materials of this day in the original version here.
We have come a long way
It would seem that only some 10 days. But during these 10 days we managed to study our niche markets and understand whether it would be good for them. I hope you already understand why we are working with narrow niches?
I can argue that many of you can give examples of successful entrepreneurs who immediately began to work on a large scale and achieved success. Of course, there are such people and there are a lot of them. But how many of those who, after reading all sorts of "gurus", clutched at a topic like making money on the Internet and ended up at the empty trough? Thousands? Tens (hundreds) thousands?
Do not follow their tracks. If you I really want to fray with serious players, after the end of the Autumn Marathon, start an additional project and as you get some free time and gain experience, do it.
In the meantime, we'll start small.
Learn to say NO!
Probably not all of you managed to find a niche from the first time that corresponds to if only so, don’t grab a straw and don’t have excessive hopes.
Tell yourself NO! Agree with it, that is, easily. Our brain is designed to look for the positive side in everything.
But you just need to learn to say no. Do you know the secret of success for traders and gamblers? Correctly, the ability to follow the rules and retreat when the system requires it.
Look at the situation from the other side. Imagine that you took the first two niches, started creating content, building websites, working on a product ...
What is the likelihood that you will have buyers? Probably not very big. This is to ensure that you do not idle, we give you a filter - Google Trends.
Learn to tell yourself NO. It will save you a lot of time.
Edison had to run about 10,000 experiments to invent a light bulb. After each unsuccessful attempt, he again took up work, completed something and tried again. Until he failed. “I was not defeated. I only found 10,000 ways how not to make a light bulb,” he said.
Ed Dale (author of the Marathon) reworked one of his first products 38 times, until he started bringing To him income. If you have a good niche, work in it. Do not stop halfway and do not give up.
Last measurement: Web 2. 0 resources
In principle, this is not so important, but you should still pay attention. In some cases, this factor can become your headache.
In order to collect traffic and fast indexing We will use Web 2. 0 resources to build a website on Google. But they will help us in this, but there is also a downside: if almost half of these resources are at your request, it will be more difficult to get to the top. I mean here it is:
Here are both Squidoo and StumbleUpon. These are the same Web 2. 0 resources. Of course, this is not a complete list of them. Here are some more of them:
If there are a lot of such resources in the top, this is bad. If there is little or no, good.
So you have two niches and in the next few days you will need to study them. It is likely that now you do not know anything about them. Nothing wrong. This is fixable.
How to quickly study the subject
And this is how.
Open Google, enter the key phrase and click on the “News” link.
Here you will also have to use the Garrett toolbar, because Google’s Russian does not give out any news by English-language queries.
Ed took this phrase (instead of “free speed reading”), because there was no news for his key phrase. If you find that there is no news for your keyword, type something more generalized. And they will appear.
So, we have news. Much news. And this is exactly what we need.
Remember, I asked you to register and set up Bloglines? It's time to use it.
On the right side of the address bar, you would have to see a small orange icon (RSS feed) and click on it. But since we work through a third-party toolbar, you will come to find a direct link to the RSS news feed. Here it is (in the left column).
The following form will appear on the screen.
First of all, tick off the ribbon name. Then create a special folder for the tape.
Name it at your discretion,
add comments (if you wish) and click the “Subscribe” button.
A new folder will appear in the left column of Bloglines.
Click on the link and on the right you will see the last ten news
From this news you will be collecting material for future filling Your sites. Really, nothing complicated? Even if you did not study at the linguistic university, you will surely succeed. English is not nuclear physics (although there is someone like that).
Now let's add another source here from which you will draw your ideas. These are Google blogs.
Do the same thing you just did with the news with them - put their feed on Bloglines. So you will know everything that they write about your niche in blogs.
If you still lack information (or just interested), you can view the archives.
Now we will select “nuggets” - fragments of news and records in blogs that we like.
Here, at first glance, an interesting entry in the blog feed.
By the link we find an article in which there are 10 tips on how to learn to read quickly. The first paragraphs - the introduction - as a rule, the most interesting part of the article. But in this case, this rule does not work. It is better to copy the entire article. For example, I will select a couple of paragraphs.
Now we right-click and write the whole thing in Notepad.
Notepad appears in the lower right corner with the finished recording.
Notepad is a Google web application, so you can use your notes from any computer.
If you click on the name of the notebook (in this case, it is My First Notebook), it will open to full screen. The application is quite convenient to use, so it should not cause any special problems.
Repeat this procedure for all news, records and articles (or parts thereof) that you find interesting.
The more nuggets you have, the easier it will be for you to write a quality article.
That's all for today.
