What is RSS - For Marketers
RSS is a technology that has the potential of overcoming many of the internet marketing challenges we are facing today and becoming a preferred tool to get 100% of your content delivered to your subscribers, as well as a tool to help you achieve top position search engine rankings.
The simple RSS explanation from the marketing point of view is that RSS is a simple to use publishing tool for marketers and publisher. It allows you to get your content delivered to end-users, without the fear of spam filters stoping your messages, and to other "content consumers" (other websites, search engines and so on).
RSS gets your content delivered, period. And it helps you increase your search engine rankings and drives new traffic to your sites.
But some marketers are still afraid that not enough internet users are using RSS feeds. Think again ?
While achieving not more than marginal penetration, its usage is growing with astounding speed.
Actually, according to a report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, 5% (6 million) Americans online consume news and information through RSS aggregators. So the market is already out there!
>> BUT WHAT ARE RSS FEEDS?
RSS content is delivered through RSS feeds --- simple files structured in a specific way.
These files include some basic information about the RSS feed (such as RSS feed title, logo, description, URL etc.) and the actual content you want to deliver to your readers.
These content items are individual stories or articles (usually just descriptions of articles actually published on the internet publisher's web site), presented in a linear list.
But RSS is not only about text. You can easily use it to deliver audio content, video content and even PowerPoint presentations and PDF files.
>> WHAT DO YOU NEED TO SUBSCRIBE TO RSS FEEDS?
The point of RSS feeds is to get people to subscribe to them, so that they can constantly receive fresh information from you.
It's just like subscribing to e-mail newsletters, only that there's no e-mail involved ? and consequently no spam or spam filters.
But to subscribe to your RSS feeds, your visitors need a special tool, called an RSS aggregator.
RSS aggregators are special tools that can take an RSS feed and display it to the end-user. They come in many different forms and flavors, but the most popular are desktop applications and web readers.
In the case of desktop RSS aggregators (example: http://www.awasu.com), end-users need to download them to their computers and install them there. Web-based RSS aggregators (example: http://www.bloglines.com) on the other hand are websites where users can create their own accounts and then use those websites to view RSS content directly from their Web browsers.
After installing an RSS aggregator or registering at a web-based RSS aggregator web service, the user needs to proactively add the link to your RSS feed in to the aggregator to view your content.
Every time you update your RSS feed by adding new content items to the RSS file, the user is notified of that through his RSS aggregator, making the content immediately available to him, without it having to face any SPAM filters and other barricades on the way.
And, for the best part, most RSS aggregators are free to use, so there's really no excuse to not get started today. And by the way ? so are quite a few RSS publishing solutions!
Yes, RSS is the free way of getting your content delivered every time.

8 Excellent Ways to Sell Your Back-end Products More Successfully!
A back-end product is a product that you attempt to sell to your customers after they have recently purchased a related item from your business. Selling back-end products is an extremely effective way of boosting your profits. It is a lot easier to sell products to those who have already bought from you than to seek out new customers. Of course, it is extremely important that you have a steady flow of new customers but it is also important to keep up with older customers and always be looking to lead them to make another purchase. If you make transactions on your website a good experience, older customers are very likely to look to do business with you again. It is your responsibility to persuade them to make that decision. Here are 8 ways to sell your back-end products more successfully:
Is internet marketing something for you? Do you dream about working at home where your kids are, where you feel you should be? Internet marketing can promise this and so much more. But, tread lightly and do your research before jumping into the world of Internet marketing. While many people feel that internet marketing is all a scam, simply stated, this is false. There are quality companies and quality business plans that are proven. Likewise, there are just as many and even more that are not worth your time or the expense. To understand the differences you need to take the time to research and then decide if the company is right for you. First, you should understand that in most internet marketing endeavors, you will own your own business. You are not working for someone else, which is a nice bonus, but it can be a downfall to many. There are extra expenses that you personally need to take on. You need to keep yourself motivated to do a good job on a daily basis. If you believe you can handle these simple things in internet marketing, then you can start your search for a company to work with. There are many. It will take you a good amount of time to decide which one is right for you. Do you want to sell products? Do you know enough to sell software? Can you see yourself promoting your business online, over the phone, in your neighborhood, and to your family and friends? Look into the business's history. Do they have a long background with a proven track record? If it's a ground floor opportunity, can you trust and believe in it enough to make it successful? Is the business a member of the Better Business Bureau? What about others who have done the business, what do they have to say? Will they provide training, materials, or anything else that is needed? Once you combine all of this information, it is only then that you can and should decide on an Internet marketing company. While there are definitely advantages to working an internet marketing business from home, never kid yourself that it won't be hard work all the way. But, by doing this basic amount of research and gathering this information, you can trust that the internet marketing business you take on is the right one for you.

What is the Flavor of Your Website?
When I mention, "flavor", I mean the appeal of the products or services, a company offers, to your basic senses, ( taste, touch, feel, sight, etc.). But, allow me to extend this even further and talk about company appeal as well, for example company "culture". Let's get less broad and bring this to you and me. What is our "appeal" to the public? Do we present a good image, ("flavor") to the public? Are people impressed with the products and services we offer? Are they presented in a professional manner? This analysis could be applied to email, websites, ads, for that matter, anything the public "sees" with our name on it. In previous articles, we discussed BRANDING your company. Included in this process would be BRANDING your image as well. So, when I mention Wendy's, for example I see DAVE, the friendly guy who cares about selling good products. When I mention McDonald's I see RONALD, the clown appealing to children. What does this have to do with the product? Absolutely nothing. It was a masterful way of BRANDING a company. Since they both sell basically the same product, what separates one from the other is their "image". Dave, the nice guy who wants to provide quality hamburgers and the Ronald, the clown, who loves kids, in the other case. Where am I going with this? I believe it is important to create a business logo, and slogan, to optimize your branding process. Then, it is really important to create your company "image". I hope my "image" projects WORK FROM HOME, quality products and services, and a professional image; and, that I have a website you can visit that is reliable and trustworthy. When you see our logo, that is what I want your vision and memory to recall. Something like "Dave" or "Ronald". Do you want you image to be a high-powered sales company, or a professional, creative, critical thinker? The "image" I get in the first case is SPAM, misrepresentation, (tell anybody anything to get it sold), and worthless products and services. Please, I am not trying to offend anyone. We all need to sell! But, there is the right way and the wrong way. I prefer the right way. We stand behind ALL products and services, and will NEVER spam anyone at any time. That is the "image" I hope you "see" when our BRANDED name appears anywhere.
