Many folks get frustrated when they start a site or blog because the fact is they’re not making any money. Well the primary reason why new businesses online are not making any money is because they don’t have a qualified traffic and I would like to emphasize the word qualified.
You don’t just want traffic that’s not going to make you money either. Qualified traffic means the people that are looking for the products, services or whatever it maybe that your selling. Folks, common sense tells you that if people are looking to buy shoes and you have shoes for sale guess what?
They’ll buy them from you because that’s what they’re looking for: now you can get tons of traffic maybe even a million hits in a day but you won’t have any sales simply because they are not qualified meaning they’re not looking to buy shoes and it’s as simple as that.
So this just tells you that you can have everything, a polished blog, great design, all the branding stuff, all your products are great people can use it and make their life better and everything looks awesome but you have NO SALES!! And you probably haven’t had any since you launched your business.
I know this from my years of experience and what really works online. Guys you really don’t need a lot of traffic you just need qualified traffic that will consistently buy your products or services.
Many of you know that I make a living on my blog (this blog! AlbertHallado.com) this supports my family here in Vegas and in the Philippines and the reason that I’m able to do that is for years now I have a consistent flow of qualified traffic to my blog, again you don’t need lots of traffic to make a living with your blog.
Watch the video below and see my statistics of qualified traffic and where it’s coming from:
As you’ve seen on the video all the qualified traffic on there I did not pay a single dime or run a Pay Per Click campaign. All I did is keep implementing “Vegas Traffic Jam” methodology that I developed and this is the same strategies that many casino’s are using to market their business and it’s working really well.
The Las Vegas economy is way better than other cities in the US we did not ask for any bail outs and actually we’re hiring 40,000 people at the new MGM City Center this tells you that the casino and hotel strategies work! 🙂
If you really want to make money and make your online business work you need to get qualified traffic to your site or blog, without it you don’t have a business period. This is the truth!
Whatever business you’re in you need qualified traffic to make a sale. Read “Vegas Traffic Jam” if you have the copy put it to work so you can start driving qualified traffic to your blog.
If you don’t have the copy yet here’s the link “Vegas Traffic Jam” I promise you that this is the best investment you’ll buy for your business! Mark my word 🙂 as always’ take cake and love you guys!
Till Next Time and God Bless You!
Tony Robbins once said;
If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you’ll achieve the same results.
Actually what he’s saying is to model someone that is successful, study their concept and how they apply it to their business and do the same on yours. I think it’s a great idea and this is actually what I do most of the time.
I borrow others business concepts then I apply it to my own business to find out if it will work or not because I am a result driven person, I don’t like to just base it on a theory. This is actually what I did with “Vegas Traffic Jam”
I borrowed the Casino’s Strategies and put it to work with my blog and guess what? It worked. So now I have another concept that I want to talk about and this is how these celebrities make millions in the first place?
1. Britney Spears
2. Brad Pitt
3. Miley Cyrus
4. Dr. Phil
5. Oprah Winfrey
What do they have in common? Why did they all make millions of dollars? Watch the video below and find out!
As you’ve seen in the video you need to have a platform first so you can have your own audience so you can build relationship with them. That way they’ll read your blog, then become subscribers, then you can sell your products and services to them.
You need to do this process in order for everything to work. But believe me when you apply this you’ll have a solid relationship with your audience and they’ll know more about you, then they’ll like you and TRUST you and this is the key to business success!
Remember people that like you, know you and TRUST you is the same people will buy your products and services over and over again. Take care and love you guys!

According to the dictionary “Supercharge” means boost, increase or raise; so do you want to supercharge your small business? Obviously YES! Right? 🙂 A while back I talked about how “ONLY 44% of small businesses have a website!” and these are facts!
The majority of small businesses are still using the old school marketing which is advertising in the phone book and spending thousands of dollars for their listing. This is sad because the majority of people throw these phone books away the moment they get them.
Actually that’s what I did! Nothing against the company that makes them but I just don’t use them and I’ve seen my neighbors throw them away as well. The local news here in Las Vegas actually did a story about people who just leave their phone books outside their door and don’t do anything with them and how it was a waste of paper,
So that tells you that method isn’t gonna work these days. Today when I’m looking for something either a restaurant or a recreation spot I use Google, and often you will hear people say “Just Google It!” That’s what I do because it works every time.
So if you’re a small business owner and paying for advertising to be listed in the phone book then you are wasting your money because less and less people are reading or using them.
This is what I am going to talk about on today’s blog post “5 Ways To Supercharge Your Small Business” by implementing a web presence.
Offline you pay thousands of the dollars to be listed in the phone book because you think you’re targeting the massive crowds but this is long gone and it’s NOT going to work anymore.
On the internet it’s less expensive at the same time you’re getting global exposure 24 hours a day 7 days a week. So you want your small business to be on Google or all major search engines to get a slice of the big pie.
Now the big question is “HOW DO I DO THAT?” don’t worry I’m here to help, so here we go!
Web Presence: Well obviously to have an effective exposure over the internet you need to have a website but here’s the thing static websites are no longer effective you need to have a blog as a platform for your business so you can communicate with your market.
A blog is such a powerful communication tool that you should incorporate with your small business. By having a blog you’re not just attracting your audience but also the major search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN. They like blogs because they’re frequently updated and it’s an interactive nature.
Target Your Audience: You need to target your audience. Even with your small offline business if you’re attracting the wrong crowd, meaning if you’re selling shoes then you should be talking about shoes or something that relates to that market.
Maybe you can talk about what are the right shoes to wear for certain occasions and give them some information or tips about shoes and at the end show case your products or link to that post to your product page. Of course this is just an example to give you an idea of what I’m talking about.
Build Your Community: Building your community around your market will definitely supercharge your small business (because they’re the ones who will buy from you later on).
To build your community you need to provide them with useful information that will benefit your audience so they will have a reason to come back and to also attract new audiences. You need to constantly to interact, communicate and build a solid relationship with them.
I will recommend using a third party autoresponder to collect their names and email so you can update or email all of them at once when you have a new blog post.
Ask What They Need: Now from time to time you should ask your audience to see what their having a problem with or if they need something specific so you’ll know what to give them or what to sell to them.
I usually do this by running a poll on my blog and by listing a few questions and all they have to do is check on the things that applies to their needs. You have to remember you’re the problem solver and you’re the one who will help them and provide a solution for what they need. This is how you will stand out among your competitors.
Sell Your Product and Services: OK! This is the exciting part but please understand that you don’t sell directly to your blog you don’t want your blog to look like a big billboard or advertising company this will scare readers’ away, big time!
The right way to do this is to have a product page that lists all your product and services. You can promote this page on your blog by linking them to your related blog posts. Let’s say if you’re giving them tips about shoes then you can link them to one of the shoes that your selling it’s not a hard sell but at the same time it’s still related and targeted.
Also please remember your blogs main purpose is to attract readers first then turn them into subscribers so you can build a relationship with them and then turn them into buyers and then repeat the process.
Well I hope you like my blog post also I hope that you learned a few things or gave you an idea so you can apply it to your small business. Oh! BTW: if you don’t have a blog yet you should start and you can…
