Are you looking for shortcuts to get a massive growth to your online business? While others take the long way, you can take advantage of available tools and resources to simplify the overall process and do your work in a smart way. I think this article can be worthwhile for many website owners, internet marketers, business owners and bloggers to achieve explosive growth. Within the last 3 years, I have used hundreds of tools. Most of them haven’t worked well for me. I have learned a lot and have collected a group of tools that I rely on. Some of these tools are free while others are paid. Premium tools will give you more chances to succeed in the marketing world, so don’t eliminate a tool from consideration just because it is not free. 1. HootSuite HootSuite is one of the most advanced social media management tools that I have ever used. It is great for companies and web masters to manage a lot of social media networks for different customers, or for just managing your own social profiles. You can review all your posts on all social networks in one visual format, monitor your campaign analytics and schedule posts for a specific time and date. I love HootSuite for: The advantage to access many social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Foursquare, WordPress and Mixi.

How to Get 8,958 Email Subscribers in 90 Days

About 3 months ago I published a post Zero to 5,273 Subscribers in 90 Days where I covered the process I used with one of my sites to start building an email list. Today I’d like to follow up on that email and show the progress of that project over the past 90 days. I know building an email list is a major priority for many people who are reading this and so I hope there is some information here that can be useful to you with your own projects.

230+ Domain Name Ideas for Your New Websites and Blogs

Choosing the domain name is an important step in the early stages of any type of website or blog, but it can be a big challenge with so many domains already registered. Personally, I really struggle to come up with possible domain names for my sites, and I know I am not alone.

One of my go-to resources over the past several years has been this list of domain name prefixes and suffixes compiled by Daniel Scocco. I’ve used this list to brainstorm possibilities for many different sites and over the years I have added many other words to create my own list that I also use. Daniel’s list was published almost 9 years ago, and so I decided to publish my own list of domain name suffixes and prefixes in this post.

13 Ways to Generate Leads for Your Business

13 Ways to Generate Leads for Your Business

You hear a lot about traffic, but not as much about leads.

But the truth is, leads are what people are really after – we just don’t express it that way.

There’s an assumption that traffic will just naturally convert to leads, but that isn’t always the case.

And what if you don’t have traffic, but want to generate leads for your business today?

In that case, you have to pursue other avenues.

I’m going to be covering 13 different ways to generate leads for your business, many of which are free, simple, and can be started now.

On-Going Traffic from Pinterest

On-Going Traffic from Pinterest

Back in January I published a post about how I was able to more than double my traffic from Pinterest in just 30 days. A few months have gone by since that time and I wanted to follow up to show the results over a longer period of time. One of the reasons I love Pinterest is because, unlike most other social networks, it has the potential to be a consistent source of traffic. Facebook can lead to huge traffic if you get a link shared on a popular fan page, or if your content is shared/liked by loads of users, but that traffic is always short-lived. The life of a post that gets a lot of pins at Pinterest can be far longer. This reliability and consistency makes Pinterest an extremely valuable source of traffic that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Zero to 5,273 Subscribers in 90 Days

Zero to 5,273 Subscribers in 90 Days

Late in 2014 I launched a new site as a side project with the goal of selling digital products. In late December I set up a mailing list with GetResponse and took a few steps to attract subscribers to that list. After 90 days that list reached 5,273 subscribers. That’s certainly not the fastest growth in the history of email marketing, but it’s not bad and does provide a good start that should continue to send traffic and generate sales.

While I have been prioritizing email lists for the past few years I took a different approach with this list, and I wanted to put together this quick case study to show the specific steps that I took. If you are getting started with email marketing hopefully this info can help you to grow your own list a little faster.

Using Upsells to Boost Revenue

Using Upsells to Boost Revenue

If you are a long-time reader of ProfitBlitz you know that selling your own digital products is one of my favorite ways to monetize a website or blog. Creating and selling your own product allows you to have freedom over pricing, benefit from the reputation that you have developed, create streams of steady income, and explode your revenue through an affiliate program. And for product sellers, offering upsells or higher-priced packages is a great way to boost your revenue even further.

How to Set Up an Effective Autoresponder Sequence

How to Set Up an Effective Autoresponder Sequence

Email marketing should be an essential part of any blogger or marketer’s plan. During my first few years as a blogger I didn’t even attempt to build an email list, and it was a big mistake. Over the past 2 or 3 years my email lists have become a priority in my business, and as a result I’ve seen more stability in traffic, and I’ve been able to more effectively promote my own products and affiliate products. Although I started building email lists a few years ago I really didn’t give much attention to the autoresponder sequence until the past year. Now I am using autoresponder sequences with email lists for three different websites/blogs and I’ve found them to produce outstanding results.

You could set it up to send one email each week for a year, an email every day for the first 30 days, or whatever you want. Email marketing provides like GetResponse and AWeber make it easy to set up autoresponders for your list (the free accounts at MailChimp do not include autoresponders, which is one of the reasons I recommend that you pay a little bit for a better service like GetResponse or AWeber). Autoresponders can be extremely useful for getting more visitors to your site, developing rapport with your subscribers, promoting your own products, and promoting affiliate products. However, every email you send gives your subscribers the...
