MailChimp vs Aweber : Battle of the Beasts

Choosing the right email list services provider is critical to any business. Such a service provides valuable targeted visitors to a business’ website, a constant source of traffic, repeat traffic and sales of the services and products of the business. Since this service is a mainstay for any successful business, you should choose an auto-responder service after carefully considering the features offered and those you require for your business. The following guidelines should help you towards that end.

Price

MailChimp offers a free subscription option of their service, for an indefinite period of time, but only as long as you have fewer than 2,000 subscribers and you send out fewer than 12,000 emails a month. While this may sound enticing, you do not have access to their full suite of features and services. Excluded from the free subscription are features such as delivery doctor (this tests your campaigns at the click of a button to identify potential problems with consumer ISPs and spam filters), inbox inspector (this ensures your email looks great in major email clients), time warp (ensures email delivery and times of delivery), and the full auto-responder capabilities is not included.

Aweber however, charges $1 for the first month of service and although this trial service provides for only 500 subscribers, it allows unlimited email sending, a 30-day money back guarantee and access to their full-featured service. Following the trial month, Aweber charges $19.99 for the first 500 subscribers.

Interface

In both Aweber and MailChimp the user interface provides many features, tools and functions to learn so the learning curve may be steep for some. Aweber provides many how-to videos for practically everything so you are never at a loss trying to figure anything out. Aweber’s interface may not be as user friendly but it certainly is powerful. MailChimp provides guides and videos as well as a colorful, user friendly interface. The two services seem equally matched as far as their interface is concerned.

Form Design Tools

Aweber offers a large variety of custom form designs for your opt-in forms. A wizard allows you to customize the size, wording, font and color elements of the designs. The process focuses more on inbuilt opt-in forms, and although it may be a little slow, you will not run out of design ideas. You may also use these forms to create a mini website and host it on Aweber’s site.

MailChimp provides external opt-in forms that can be used as opt-in pages hosted on MailChimp’s site. A skilled web designer could make his own forms from scratch using MailChimp’s design tools. The GUI tool can be used even by novices to create designs including pop-ups. The service provides only three templates for onsite forms and they are known as Naked, Classic and Super Slim.

Drafting and Email Design 

Although Aweber provides a good choice of email templates to choose from, it does not have very sophisticated text editing software. Care should be taken when text is copied and pasted into the email templates. Aweber has advised they will be releasing a new version of the text editor that will be more user-friendly and will fix current problems experienced by the current editor.

MailChimp however, supplies a large number of email templates, ranging from highly stylized to very basic. The interface for designing HTML emails is very flexible and you may even host images on their site. The site runs much slower however, and that is possibly because of the loaded images used by its user interface.

Email Tracking

Aweber provides a sophisticated tracking system that tells which links a subscriber clicked on, when they were clicked and when emails were opened. MailChimp provides no such tracking, and only uses a rudimentary system of placing a star next to a subscriber who opens an email. Conversion tracking is provided by Aweber for those who sell products on their websites, and users of the sites can be traced from the email links to the websites.

Another distinction between the two services is that your domain links in an email are emailed in the exact format with Aweber emails, whereas with MailChimp the links are converted to very long and strange looking links that many subscribers are wary of clicking. The links in the Aweber emails do not look suspicious to readers and using them result in high click through rates.

Auto Responder Efficiency

Aweber and MailChimp manage their email lists differently. Aweber manages its email follow up sequence by assigning a number to each message that goes to its subscribers, and each message is spaced by a certain number of days from the last message. It is always possible to tell which messages were sent to which subscribers. In the MailChimp system, it is possible to send emails to just a few subscribers of a list based on specific criteria. The same is not possible in the Aweber system. Both systems are equally effective in their follow-up methods.

Support

Aweber certainly has the edge over MailChimp in the area of support. Live customer support is available with Aweber Monday through Sundays at specified times by telephone and through live chat, and international customer support is possible with a special number. Support can also be reached through email. The only support available with MailChimp is email, and customers may wait up to 24 hours before they receive a response to their queries.

Conclusion

In the end, when considering MailChimp or Aweber, Aweber’s powerful email follow-up and tracking system, as well as their high email delivery rate, by far outweighs that of MailChimp. In its favor, MailChimp allows greater form design flexibility, but once the form is designed, deliverability and tracking become features for daily monitoring and concern, and that is the strong point for the Aweber system.

MailChimp’s terms of service does not let you to promote affiliate products whereas Aweber does, so an online marketer will need to carefully scrutinize the TOS of the auto-responder he is considering before he makes a decision to purchase.

Aweber’s introductory $1 price for the first month makes it easily affordable for any marketer now starting out, especially as access is given to all resources of the service. When all features and services are considered, Aweber offers a better and more powerful auto-responder service than MailChimp.

Promote Your Ebook Online : 10 Easy Ways!

Writing an eBook is quite tricky, but promoting it online can be such a hassle. No matter what kind of an eBook you’ve written, reaching your audience should be your top priority. Unlike in the pre-internet days when the power of promoting a book was a job for reviewers and publishers, nowadays it is much easier to get you book to the target audience by yourself.

Usually, there are two things that come with promoting your eBook, the good news and the bad news. For instance, the bad news is that the electronic publishing sector is very difficult to conquer and hence it’s the ultimate game that can make you either a winner or a loser. On the other hand, if your eBook fails, it is not usually about its content being poorly written but rather poorly promoted.

Basically, the promotion of your eBook is something entirely under your control. Nevertheless, if you’ve been struggling to achieve this with little or no success, the following tips for how to promote your eBook online will surely help you.

Learn How to Write a Ebook for Free

Promote Your Ebook Online…

1. Promote Yourself As The Author

This is one of the most effective ways you can use to promote your eBook online. There are several ways you can use to accomplish this but most of them involve being proactive. For instance, you can start by submitting quality articles to article directories like Ezines, and proceed to making a few guest appearances on related blogs.

2. The Earlier You Start, The Better

This is one of the most powerful and essential steps that you can take towards promoting your eBook online. This means that, before the actual writing of the eBook begins, you should start building a network of reviewers and supporters. Also, ensure that you keep track of anyone who demonstrates genuine enthusiasm for your eBook project. Try as much as possible to keep in touch with such people as the project evolves by sending them direct emails or through social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

3. Gather Reviews

While a full synopsis tells your potential readers what you eBook is all about, a brief description can help pique their interest. Feedbacks from you readers play a key role in making you realize how valuable and intriguing your work is, instead of boasting about it. For instance, to achieve such feedbacks, you must round up reviews by encouraging customers, colleagues, friends or even family members to submit reviews. You can also use some websites or services that specialize exclusively in eBook reviews. Gather these reviews and publish them on your website as long as they portray your E-Book’s content positively.

 

4. Offer Valuable Content (write a remarkable eBook)

Creating valuable content for your readers is the best approach that makes it easier for you to market your book. Majority of people prefer an eBook that offers valuable content, therefore if your eBook is not content rich, keep working on it until it is. To establish if the value of your eBook’s content meets your reader’s expectations, ask you friends to give you their feedback.

5. Publish a Blog

The most ideal vehicle for promoting ideas, products, opinions and eBooks is a blog. For instance, majority of blog platforms are designed to be search engine friendly, a factor that can deliver more potential readers. Blogs can also offer you with a variety of opportunities to promote your eBook online by teasing your target audience with excerpts or post reviews.

6. Build a website

This is the most prudent idea for you if you are an upcoming eBook author without a full website in place. As the publication day approaches, build a full a website that includes a dedicated blog for your eBook where you can post corrections, updates and responses to reader comments and suggestions. Also, include eBook’s sample chapters and a link for your potential readers to purchase the eBook. Ideally, the more content you can put on your website the better because search engines like Google favor content-rich websites.

7. Start an Affiliate Program (Brings in Money & Boost in Branding)

Promoting your eBook via an affiliate program will not only generate more exposure but also sales for your published work. Actually, it is the best way to expose your eBook to new audience by targeting your program at content publishers in your niche. For the best results, you can share generous commissions with your affiliates and still gain healthy profits since publishing an eBook is relatively an inexpensive endeavor.

8. Create an eBook pitch

You should consider writing at least 3 sales pitches for your eBook: 10 seconds, 30 seconds and 60 seconds. In this case, if someone asks what the eBook is all about, offer him/her the 10 second pitch and if he/she responds with interest, have a pitch that’s relatively longer ready. You can practice these pitches on your friends to check if they work.

9. Contribute To Web Forums

It is quite evident that almost every field has at least one or two online forums where interested people share new ideas. Find these forums and join them, contribute freely by giving advice and reaching out to help others. Post a link to your website or blog in any forum based on your eBook’s niche.

10. Socialize

According to a recent research, it has emerged that more authors are flocking the social media to promote their work. Actually, such social networks including Twitter and Facebook provide you with an excellent platform to promote your work. There always a high chance that majority of your potential audience are plugged into the social networking space and hence it’s up to you to find, connect and engage with them.

It is strongly recommended you should employ an approach of building a following instead of the one geared towards driving instant sales. As much as social networking is such a great tool to promote your eBook online, readers can edge you out if you are too thick with your promotional approaches.

In the modern world, the eBook market is not only thriving, it’s also exploding given that the power of traditional publishing has been taken over by electronic publishing. As a matter of fact, many authors are having more success with electronic formats than traditional prints. However, you eBook can only be successful if it is well promoted.

How to Start a Amazon Niche Site on WordPress

Perhaps you’ve heard about building an online business, one that you can work on from anywhere. Maybe you want a way to make some extra money every month without quitting your regular job, or maybe you’re ready to hand your boss your walking papers. But how exactly does one do that? Well, one of the best ways to make money online is to start a Amazon niche site on wordpress.

Maybe you’ve heard that that there’s lots of money to be made as an Amazon affiliate, but you have no idea what that means. How do you start a Amazon niche site on wordpress and make money? Well first you need to understand exactly what an Amazon affiliate does.

Amazon is a big supporter of affiliate marketing. That means that if you have a website or an email list and you link to a product on Amazon from your website, then when that person clicks through that link and buys the product (or anything else from Amazon) within a certain timeframe, you get a commission or percent of the sales price of that item. The person running the website with the link is the affiliate of Amazon. Sounds simple right? Well here are the steps to start a Amazon niche site on WordPress.

1. Sign up to become an Amazon affiliate.

You can’t just link to an Amazon product from your website. You need to make sure that you’re signed up as an affiliate with Amazon – this way every link you promote will have a tracking code unique to you in it – and you’ll be sure to get paid. Check out this link to start the process: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/

2. Decide on your niche 

A niche simply refers to a subset of products you want to sell. Amazon sells everything under the sun and it would be hard to start a successful Amazon niche site on WordPress if you tried to sell everything from computers to toasters. Rather pick a niche – like small electronics, or kitchen supplies, or toys that you want to focus on. This will make it a lot easier to create epic content site that will attract visitors. Browse though the Amazon categories to see what you’re interested in. Also check out the Biggest Sellers list, best sellers in each category and the most popular products to determine a great niche. And don’t forget to consider the average price of the items in your niche. With Amazon you earn a percent – usually around 6% of every sale you refer. If you refer someone and they buy something like a kitchen tool that costs $10 you might only make 60 cents. On the other hand if your niche is household appliances like coffee makers that cost $100, you might make $6 for every customer you refer.

3. Pick a domain name.

A domain name is the web address or the url your Amazon niche wordpress site will be hosted on. You can search and select a name at one of the companies that sell both domains and website hosting like Bluehost – you can check them out at Bluehost.com. It’s reputable company and you get a domain name for as little as around $10 a year.

4. Get Awesome Hosting!

Once you’ve picked your website name you’ll have to choose a webhosting company. A webhost is the company or place that will host or house your website. Good ones, like Bluehost have plans for every level of business, from small Amazon niche sites to much larger websites. A good hosting company will make it easy to install WordPress to manage your site. Plans at Bluehost start at around $5 a month. Join Bluehost now and Get Free Domain. Check Now!

5. Install WordPress.

WordPress is a free content management system for websites. Though sometimes thought of as simply a blogging platform, when you install WordPress onto your website you have an easy to use, easy to update way to add text, pictures – and products – to your Amazon niche site.

6. Pick a High Converting Amazon WordPress theme –

One of the great things about WordPress is that you can select from many different themes or skins that determine the look and feel of your website. There are free themes, but many of them lack key features you’ll need when creating an Amazon niche site. You’ll want a theme that allows you to easily load Amazon products, add Amazon banners, is SEO (Search Engine Optimized) friendly, has social sharing tools included and is easy to set up. Take a look at wpzonertheme for a great, easy to install Amazon niche site wordpress theme.

Check Out All the Amazon WordPress Themes which I have reviewed earlier.

7. Load your theme and start adding products –

this may seem like the easy part, but you’ll want to pick products that have great customer ratings, are popular and that fit into your niche.

8. Drive Traffic to your site –

You won’t get any commissions if people don’t come to your site. That’s why your niche selection, and your wordpress theme is key. A theme like wpzonertheme makes it easy to add additional pages and posts to your site that are related to niche. For instance, if your site focuses on high end coffee makers, as its niche, perhaps you’ll want to include favorite recipes featuring coffee, or the best coffee spots around the world. This will help your Amazon niche site grow in popularity, bringing more people and getting more people to click through those Amazon affiliate links and bringing you more money.

9. Bonus tip –

If you can you should start to build an email list for your site. You will want to add an email response form and start an email list. There are several services out there like Aweber or iContact that will help you do that and a good wordpress theme like Wpzonertheme will make it a snap to add the form to your site. Consider offering a freebie – like a downloadable report – as an incentive for people to join your list. Now you can start emailing your list with ‘special’ offers on products from Amazon – either directing them to your site – or straight to Amazon to make some money.
As you can see, starting a successful online business doesn’t mean you need to spend hours building your own store, managing inventory or the like. All you need to do is find a niche of products that you’re interested in and you can start a Amazon niche site on WordPress that will bring you in money month after month.

20+ Google Adsense Alternatives You Should Consider Using in 2013

There is no doubt that Google Adsense is one of the best online contextual advertising programs today. The only problem is relying too much on the program. It is important to note that Google Adsense is a very strict advertising programs. The program is known for locking out many people after accepting them for a short while. As a result many bloggers and website owners are left stranded with no idea where to start.
This is where Google Adsense alternatives come in. You must have a plan B in case your Google AdSense account is banned. There are increasing cases of many Google Adsense accounts being banned for no reason. Having an option is therefore very important if you want to enjoy steady advertising revenue. The good news is that there are very many other advertising programs you can use apart from Google Adsense.

Before jumping into the alternatives , if you are not banned from adsense look how you can increase adsense earning in my earlier post.

Although Adsense is the best advertising program today, this doesn’t mean that there are no other effective advertising programs.

Another truth about customer subscription is that the more number of option one provides for a signup the more likelihood of the customer to signup. It is a simple rule of persuasion.

The opt in forms generated by this plugin not only comes to up in the sidebar or footer or as a popup on your website but you can set up subscription forms on top for your blog posts or at the end of it.

By becoming a subscriber for your newsletter, the visitor will be looking forward to similar type of interesting article or post which initially caught their attention. Not many plugins provide the subscribers the ability to submit their comments regarding the website. Subscribers Magnet provides a subscription form with a comment section which makes it interesting for the visitor since they are able to share their opinion or their requests along with the subscription request.

Optin Skin

Making changes to the design of your wordpress website’s skin can also make it quite interesting for the visitors.

Popup Domination

Although there are numerous plugins available in the market which provides popup messaging features for visitor signups, not all have impressive design and feel. If the user experience of a popup is not impressive then no matter how many you put up on your website, you will never be able to increase your subscription rates. Popup Domination is a wordpress plugin which addresses this issue quite effectively. This wordpress plugin provides beautiful and impressive popups which you can further customize as per your requirements to attract visitors to sign up for a subscription. A good popup message should be catchy and attractive, providing all the essential data about the benefits of subscribing to the website. Therefore, maintaining all these details within a small popup is a real challenge.
With the help of Popup Domination, you will be able to target specific pages on your website. This means that instead of simply clicking no or bypassing the offer on the first obvious page, the visitor might get a popup message for subscription on a specific page which might be an essential one for the visitor. This is tricky since now the visitor will be intrigued by the popup message and will definitely sign up for a subscription. Although numerous plugins offer popup message facilities not all of them allow complete customization of such popups. However, with Popup Domination you will be able to make complete customizations on your website without any issues at all.
After going through all these different types of plugins for your wordpress website you might have understood the importance of opting for one or more of these plugins to improve your business prospects. The more a customer is able to know about your company or the more they keep on reading about your success, the chances of sales from such customer increases over time. Moreover, you might not be selling a product directly to a customer. In case you are in affiliate marketing, it is important to build up a good email list since the more number of probable customers you are able to redirect towards the parent organization the more commissions you make.
Calling or making a personal visit to grow connection with potential customers or advertising in regular media to generate the interest regarding your product is not quite fruitful anymore. This is true especially if you are a small business owner and you have just started your online business. In order to build market reputation, it is essential to create a group of subscribers who will eventually talk about your product in the market. By using plugins to build you email list fast, you will be able to make a great impact in the online business world and will be able to increase your turnover dramatically within a very short period.

Frankly, your marketing strategy isn’t working so you’ll need a new a strategy that you can count on.

The last thing you want is for people to leave your page after a few minutes. You want to attract them to take action once they’re there. Learning how to convert traffic to your site can increase your sales instantly when you know how to convert your site properly.

Tips for how to get targeted users to your blog

– What are the most common mistakes marketers make?

The greatest mistake marketers make is starting their landing page using templates of corporate websites. It adds an entire bunch of opportunities and distractions to abandon. Navigating social media links, alternative offers, logo links for home pages, and more columns than normal can all contribute to distraction and clutter. Start with a fresh page.

– Elements Of Effective Landing Pages

Start using landing pages that are blank. Then add an offer to take action on a form or button. To overcome these abandonments, consider to slather on persuasive copies and display the product on an image. Also add trust symbols to persuade your readers.

– Create Attractive Headlines

You must keep your promise on your ads, links or emails that railed in them to enter your visitors page. If you offered 15% off discounts from ads, then the landing page must offer that 15% discount. Not only will these headlines attract customers, but it will gain their trust on your business.

Your headlines should also promote how your business can benefit them. If you’re offering white paper, don’t choose a boring headline that explains your company or product. However, it should be a headline that you would want to see if you were a customer. A guide which shows your customers how to receive your services may be a smart headline template for your white paper business.

– Make High Intriguing Call-To-Action

Tell visitors they cannot receive something your services anywhere else. Take as much writing space as you want.

– Length Of Landing Pages

Never write more content than needed. When methodical visitors scroll down and can’t have time to action until the bottom, then you’ll likely lose their attention. Give them the information they can get right away before they change their mind. For fast-deciding visitors, provide them a summary right at the top. But also make sure to have a long explanation area for those who can’t make their mind up right away.

– Advice On Increasing Conversion Ratio For Marketers

Whenever a marketer doesn’t have enough time, they either make messages which they like, or make messages that don’t get any pushbacks from their boss. In many cases, the messages will target inwardly, not toward the visitor. Give yourself time to write ten things which you think your readers would like to read. Budget extra time to be creative and try different versions for your pages; ads, pages, and other informational offers.
Be a company that educates readers thoroughly and brag about how they can succeed through the product. Write authority content that proves to your readers that you know what you’re writing about.

– SEO ( Search Engine Optimizations)

Search engine optimization is one of the best ways to help you land on Google faster than ever. You can develop your chances of making big money when you do SEO online. Search engine optimization can be done by creating articles and submitting them to top of the line article companies everyday. With the right SEO techniques, you will succeed and grow your traffic in many ways.

– Make New Videos

It’s also recommended to make use of new videos that will persuade customers to sign up to your page. When you create quality videos that persuade your potential customers, they will likely be able to sign up to your landing page.

– Have Testimonials On Your Landing Page

To prove to potential customers that your business is legit, you must have actual testimonials from past customers. This can help increase your sign up ratio upon customers, as they’re less hesitant on whether you’re a worthy business to join or not.

Benefits To Using These Tips

– Generate More Legit Customers

The main benefit to using these tips as an online marketer is that you’ll gain more serious customers that’ll really want to join your site. Persuading customers to go to your landing page is the first step in succeeding as an online marketer, but actually getting them to join the site is something not many marketers are able to do.

– Spend Less Money On Ads

The best part to having an actual strategy that you follow is that you can spend less funds on ads, and spend save it to expand your business. The average online marketer will spend at least $1,000 a year on advertisements alone, but in reality, business owners don’t need to waste that amount on unnecessary ads. Although these ads can help generate people to go to your site, it doesn’t essentially mean they will purchase what you’re offering them. That can only be done with the right methods in mind.

If you want to generate more sales on your website, then you should consider implementing the tips above to your online marketing strategy list. When you know what to do and have the right methods in mind, then your site will gain more legit customers right away. Getting more serious customers can be done with the right strategies in mind.

15 Killer Tips To Apply for Google Adsense

Google adsense is a way of making online income by passive means. There are a number of steps you need to take before starting to make money by Google adsense. There are a number of people all over the world who have been making billions of dollars by Google adsense. But even though making money is an easy process, you need to keep some important points in your mind. Let us see what those points are. Here we are discussing the most important ways of applying for Google adsense.

1) Privacy policy:

This is the first and foremost thing that you have to keep in mind while applying for Google adsense. Many bloggers neglect this and as a result, their application for Google adsense gets rejected. Some people say that there is no need to have a privacy policy for Google adsense, but it is absolutely nonsense. It is a way of describing the readers of your blog what they are actually going to read in your blog. It also has a list of do’s and don’ts with the blog and without a privacy policy, a blog are not at all a blog. So don’t forget to have a privacy policy to your blog.

2) About page:

This page describes what your blog is about. This page has nothing to do if you are creating a blog without having any intention of applying for Google adsense, but if you want to apply for Google adsense, you should have this page at the beginning of the blog. Any blog without this page will be rejected immediately by the adsense. This page helps you to establish a healthy relationship with the readers of your blog.

3) Contact us page:

This page has your contact details, such as your email address, website address, phone number, postal address etc. this is very important because every reader will be having his own opinion about the blog and would be very eager to share them with you. You should provide space for his comments in the blog. Some of the contents in your blog might not be proper and the reader might not like those contents. You can’t believe that you are the best in the world and that everything that you have written is right. This page helps the readers to tell you about your mistakes.

4) Name and email verification:

This is very important because the Google adsense team will contact you to confirm that someone who is contacting them is not a spam one. So make sure that your contact details are visible clearly at the beginning of the blog, say in the ‘about us’ page. As soon as you get a mail from the Google adsense team, reply to that mail to confirm your address. As soon as you confirm your email address, you will get your proposal for Google adsense accepted.

5) Age verification:

While applying for Google adsense, keep one thing in mind. That is this is only for the people who are above 18. But there is no system which detects your age by any means. So while applying for adsense, make sure that you are entering your age accurately. There are cases where the applications of many people have been rejected in the past just for the simple reason that they were below 18. Even if you are below 18, don’t disclose that you are minor!

6) Minimum number of posts in your blog:

This is a very difficult question to answer because there is no absolute answer for this question. There are cases where people who have posted more than 400 posts in their blog but still got their application for Google adsense rejected, but on the other hand, there are some other people who are earning a lot of money with just 40-50 posts in their blog. So rather than the quantity, quality of your blog posts is important for getting your application accepted.

7) Design of the blog:

This is very important to attract the readers to your blog. Always make your blog attractive with colorful and eye catching pictures and videos. It is said that a picture is equivalent to thousand words and a video is equivalent to thousand still pictures. Hence upload wonderful pictures and videos of relevant content to your blog. That increases the number of unique visitors to your blog and consequently increases the chances of your Google adsense application getting accepted.

8) Type of the content you post:

This is another important thing you have to keep in mind. Remember by posting illegal, sex oriented, adult content and drug related posts, you may increase the number of visitors to your blog, but Google adsense is not meant for such blogs. Your blog needs to be of some useful content to everyone. Posits related to science and technology, business, commerce, economy, mathematics and other related issues help everyone. People like students, businessmen, bankers etc get a lot of benefits from such posts and you will increase the chances of your Google adsense application getting accepted.

9) Providing value to your blog:

Never ever state that you are blogging with the sole purpose of making money. That is not a good sign. Never ever complain that you aren’t making enough money by your blog. You need to wait for a long time to start earning a steady income. So be patient and never think of money, or at least don’t show up that you are thinking about money! Money comes automatically if you go on improving the quality of your posts day by day.

10) Choose the best domain for your blog:

This is another important thing that you have to keep in your mind. In earlier days, adsense team was approving any blog in the domain wordpress.com, but today the situation has completely changed. Today you should have your own domain which specifies your blog. Without having your own unique domain, you can’t even dream of getting your adsense application getting approved. The age of domains is also very important, because adsense team doesn’t accept any application until the particular blog domain is six months or older.

11) Different Ad networks:

There are a large number of Ad networks which you can use for increasing traffic to your blog. Choosing the right type of Ad network is very important. Do some online investigation work to know which Ad network is the best one. Some of your friends or other adsense experts may help you in this regard. Consult them and use the best Ad network for promoting your blog. But before applying for Google adsense in such blogs, it is better to remove all the ads that are there in that blog.

12) Paid traffic:

If you are having sites which are getting paid traffic, the chances of your application getting rejected are more, because Google hates such sites. Adsense people also penalizes such sites. So better to avoid paid traffic to your site if you want to earn from Google adsense. You can get traffic from other means also, say from search engines etc.

13) SEO your blog:

Search Engine Optimization, shortly called as SEO, is a technique of optimizing your blog or website in such a way that it attracts more and more people. There are two options for achieving it. Either you can do it by yourself or ask some SEO experts. There are many SEO experts who do this for bloggers. They have been working in this field for many years and know very well how to deal with such matters. They know the heartbeat of readers very well and give you important tips about how to optimize your site for earning more income.

14) Ensure that you are getting good traffic to your blog: Getting good traffic to the blog is very important before applying for Google adsense. Earlier they didn’t place so many restrictions, because the number of people applying for adsense were very less, but today as the number of people applying for Google adsense is increasing, they have placed more restrictions on blogs. Unless your blog gets at least a 100 new visitors every day, your application will not be accepted.

15) Patience:

Finally, remember that Google adsense will not earn you millions of dollars overnight and you need to be patient. It is true that there are people who are earning over several million dollars every month by Google adsense alone, but that needs a lot of tricks, skills and experience. You need wait for at least a year or two before earning such a huge income. But the problem with most of the people is that they don’t have patience to wait and they give up their efforts after a few weeks of painstaking efforts. Only those who continue to work hard will start to earn huge income.

So by keep these things in your mind and follow them accurately while applying for Google adsense. Remember that there is always a second time and even if your application is rejected once or twice, see where you have made mistakes, rectify them and try again. Best of luck!

Aweber Vs Constant Contact : Best Autoresponder for WordPress

There are a couple of factors that you need to carefully weigh in your mind while choosing the right email list services. Simply put, with many industry players offering all manner of deals and services out there, it’s essential to take time to learn the ropes of each offer before making that major decision- subscribing to a given provider.
That said, we have compiled a simple comparison article between two major email list service providers in the market today i.e aweber vs constant to equip you with the real facts that you need to learn. We sincerely hope that by the end of this write-up, you’ll have gained a lot to guide you into making a wise and informed choice. Have a look.

Aweber Vs Constant Contact

Comparing the price offers

Aweber offers good prices for users sending high numbers of emails. If you have a huge email list, you can count on its email listing services to save a pretty penny. On the other hand, while utilizing Constant Contact’s services, you’ll be better off sending a small number of emails. Their packages for small deals are the best in the market. However, when it comes to huge email packages, their prices are a bit on the higher side relative to Aweber’s.

What about usability?

User friendliness is a crucial factor to ponder while investing in email marketing services. Both Aweber and Constant Contact come with well laid out user features. In particular, Aweber offers illustrative videos (practically about everything you need to know) and a rich easy to navigate interface. Well Constant Contact is not badly off with its pre-made customizable templates.

Email creation features

When it comes to email creation functions, Aweber and Constant Contact score equal marks. Aweber boast over 102000 business houses and can generate amazing opt-in forms to gather customers’ details with their professional services. Constant Contact on the other hand features simplified (step-by-step) guidelines for creating an effective and professional email. Both providers offer winning results.

Email delivery

Aweber utilizes permission based services to authenticate your emails (through an automated analysis process) to avoid marking as spam. The provider also offers email autoresponder services to build subscriber confidence. Constant Contact provides almost similar packages- to Aweber’s. It runs an anti-spam test before sending your emails to make sure that your emails are delivered on time.

Email management tools

Aweber provide powerful email analytics packages. With their comprehensive system, you can be sure to track- who opened your emails or who clicked on the sales links (in any case that is all you need to know after sending a sales email). On the other hand Constant Contact features easy to read email services stats graphs. With them, you can rest assured to track every detail about your email marketing campaign without breaking a sweat. Both providers offer quite similar stats services- a big plus to their continued dominance.

Support issues

Without accessing the right kind of support on burning issues, your email marketing program will remain just that-a flat program. It’s therefore crucial to find reliable email support services while planning to roll out a strong email marketing campaign. Aweber, boasts a strong 24/7 specially trained team that is equipped with all the necessary tools to attend to your needs in the most professional manner possible. You can be sure to get the right support through their: telephone services, email services and text chat services. As for Constant Contact, their well-organized customer support team can be of great help in case of any burning queries and issues. They provide telephone support services alongside live online chat and email support services.

Marketing focus

In email marketing, and other forms of marketing, there’s continual fight to be visible. Marketing focus plays a crucial role in determining how visible or invisible your business grows into at the end of the day. Talking of marketing focus, aweber features three packages- each of them specifically engineered to meet different marketing needs-namely B2B (Business to business email marketing services), B2C (Business to consumer market focus services) and large scale marketing packages. On its side, Constant Contact boasts a couple of more similar market-targeted packages (to Aweber’s) that if used wisely can greatly improve your marketing fortunes.

Additional features

When it comes to additional/convenience features, Aweber takes it all. Some of the essential features found in Aweber but not in Constant Contact include:

  •  RSS to Email
  •  Triggered campaigns
  • 1000 of plugins available for Drupal , Joomla and WordPress
  • Social network sign-up form options
  • Concurrently, Constant Contact offers the following unique additional features (absent in aweber):
  • Online training features ( Step by Step Features )
  • Follow up email to send emails automatically to your subscribers. Great way to earn money from your list and create connections automatically.

Trial period

Aweber does not provide free trials but their trial costs only $1 for 30days and you get access to full features. This is compensated by reliable email support, free campaign strategy consultation, in person seminars, phone support and free resources. In other words, despite there not being a free trial period, there’s still some level of product satisfaction guarantee in utilizing Aweber’s services. Constant Contact offers a 60 day long trial period which is essential for familiarizing with the nitty-gritties of the system.

 

Pros of using aweber

  •  Reliable customer support
  •  Auto-responders
  •  Reliable delivery rates
  •  Pre-made templates
  •  Ease of use

Pros of using constant contact

  •  Auto-responder
  • Customisable templates

 

Cons of using aweber

None as I can think of but might take you few few hours to get hold of but they have step by step video guides to help you.

Cons of using constant contact

  • It’s a bit expensive to use as compared to Aweber.
  • It’s user friendliness is quite below par.
  • Offers no integrations.

Bottom line…

Aweber OR Constant Contact who takes the lead?

Before we have compared Aweber with Mail chimp and Aweber had complete out run Mailchimp for its usage and effectiveness. If you wish you can read Mailchimp vs Aweber here.

After critically comparing the features and packages offered by the two, it’s relatively easy to rank them according to their merits and demerits. In that case, Aweber takes the lead. It features a wide variety of additions that are essential for hassle free usage. In addition, it offers decent pay packages- favor sending of bulk emails. Well, ignoring Constant Contact’s free 60-day trial period, the benefits of using Aweber are more real and ultimately more business-growth oriented.
If you’re looking to launch a strong marketing campaign, it’s wise to consider Aweber first before proceeding to other alternatives. It’s effective, reliable, relatively affordable and above all remarkable. We hope that the details provided in our Aweber Vs Constant Contact  review will come in handy.
