How Often to Publish Content When Creating a PBN Network

Image BLOG-NETWORK.jpg

PBN stands for “Private Blog Networks” and consist of various different Web 2.0 properties to build authority to your main “target” website. Many people often say PBN’s are blackhat, but I argue if you can provide value through them, they are as good as any other website. Private blog networks can be built through sites like Weebly.com, Jigsy.com, Blogger.com, and Jimdo.com, all with different themes. Each one looks different than the other but they are all targeted around your niche. It’s important to understand the mechanics behind such a network and how they add value to the bottom line. … Read Entire Story

Image sethsblog

Repainting your house the same color it already was feels like a waste. It’s a lot of effort merely to keep things as they are. But if you don’t do it, time and entropy kick in and the house starts to fade. The same can be said for 1,000 elements of your organization, including your relationships with customers, staff, suppliers and technology. The way you approach your market, the skill you bring to your craft, the culture in your organization—it constantly needs another coat of paint. Rust never sleeps.

Or maybe you remember the Larry Bird vs. Michael Jordan commercials for McDonald’s. Celebrity endorsements are certainly nothing new and they continue to be an important part of the marketing efforts of large, multinational mega corporations. But the rise of the Internet in general and social media in particular has really changed what the face of an “influencer” really looks like. Mainstream celebrities will always have their place, but bloggers like you and me can get in on this action as “brand ambassadors” too. What Is a Brand Ambassador?

And while the things that go on behind the scenes certainly matter, you can’t focus on them at the expense of your relationships with customers. Small Businesses Are Built on Relationships When people think about small businesses, a certain image is conjured up in their minds. They picture a quaint storefront on a main street in a small town. They see friendly storeowners who know customers by their first names and interact with them as they walk in. They picture handshakes, smiles, and promises that are always honored. See, small businesses are all… Read Entire Story
