I hate to admit that this is exactly what happened to me. I thought one database was another; and then without even realizing my mistake for about an hour, the database was deleted, and my blog site was down.
Wow. Did that happen?
Yes, it did. I confirmed it.
I didn’t think I would leave a generic title on the database name, and I thought it would be better to have more space and delete the extra database from a website I no longer used. Was it the extra site I no longer used? Nope. Like I said, I confirmed my deletion.
My lights went off, and now I’m panicking, because I now have no idea how to get my blog site back up and running. Research. Google. Search. Look. So much to look at. Finally, I gave in—and being luckily to have a website friend—I asked him to help me out. He was happy to.
When you launch a website, you will be facing several very unique challenges. If you have never been part of a website launch, then there is a really good chance that you will have no idea what is going on. There are a lot of things that need to done correctly, and they also need to be done in a timely manner. One of the biggest challenges that every new website faces would have to be generating traffic. This is no easy task, and trying to game the system could get your website permanently banned from any type of search engine or directory. This is one area where you want to tread very lightly, especially if you have no prior experience with something like this.
Traffic Generating Methods
Social media brings a whole new way of reaching out to customers. There is plenty of hustle and bustle about having the best social media, a lot of social media and constant social media. With so much pressure from the industry to ensure that social media is included in marketing, it may be at times overwhelming for companies to find the right way to include it.
Social media has all kinds of ways to help and hinder businesses. In the end, social media does what it does for companies based on how the company uses the different social media services. Social media can grow a business faster than advertising if it is used the right way.
Getting the word out about your product, service or website isn’t so easy. Gone are the days of big advertising budgets and campaigns. In 2013, content marketing has reached a level of maturity that transcends demographic targeting of short tag line ads. Today, you need to do it well, do it smart and with a small budget. By following these content marketing tips for 2013, you can meet those goals and even transcend your expectations.
1. Know the Basics
First, let’s cover a few basics that marketers have learned about content marketing from the early days of trial and error. For instance, avoiding plagiarism should be obvious to you. Using sharp writers who clearly know the subject matter should be a given. Because there was a lot of junk writing put out there in the early days, it’s vital you watch out for unreliable sources of information when researching topics to write about. These items are worth repeating because some content marketers still don’t get it. Cheaply sourced content won’t help your marketing strategy and will probably hurt it considerably. Don’t be tempted.
As article marketers and bloggers, we all dream of writing an article or a post and having it take off and go viral and make us tons of money.
I have personally written articles and posts in the past that were specifically designed to get me affiliate clicks for cash such as this one here >>> [ LINK ]
The unfortunate fact of the matter for most of us is, however, the fact that articles and posts (after you write them) just sit there like a “bump on a log”. Sure, they’ll get a small bit of traffic and maybe even some comments when they’re first written, published, pinged, and shared, but after that, away they fade into the dark and cold archives…where they make no money for you.
