Your Step-by-Step Guide to Building a Perfect Personal Website. | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
How to create an online portfolio to showcase your career highlights with visuals even if you're not a graphic designer or visual artist.

If you think a personal website is only for designers, artists and creative types, think again. Anyone can have an online portfolio to showcase career highlights.

The Internet has become the go-to source to find whatever we are looking for. Searching for talent is no different. Conservatively, 51% of hiring professionals said they use the Internet to source and vet candidates, according to a 2015 study by CareerBuilder.

You have access to the same marketing strategies and tools businesses use–a website for starters. The concept of developing and promoting your personal brand started over a decade ago. You are already known for certain qualities and skills among those you’ve worked with. This is your personal brand. Why not promote that reputation of excellence? Now it is time to be more strategic in how you package and promote your reputation.
What will someone find if they search for your name online? That is what is known as your digital footprint. An online portfolio or personal website is one place online you can control the information someone will discover about you. Using your name as the web address of your website helps optimize how search engines find your name.

The Mindset of a Lifestyle Entrepreneur, 12 Startup Success Secrets

The Mindset of a Lifestyle Entrepreneur, 12 Startup Success Secrets | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Before he realized that what he actually wanted out of life was financial freedom and the perfect lifestyle, Eddie Yu (@Eddie_Yu) spent three years in the software industry.

Not wanting to spend the rest of his life working for other people, he gave up his job and set about the task of finding something that he could do for himself, and which would give him both the financial freedom and lifestyle that he desired.

Unsurprisingly, due to his previous background in the IT industry, after reading an article about online gambling and affiliate marketing, the author saw the possibilities that the Internet offered and set about the task of creating an online business of his own.

“12 Startup Success Secrets — Mindset and Strategies Workbook for Building a Successful Online Business” is aimed at anyone who aspires to, or is already attempting to achieve their own financial freedom by doing business online, whether it is through selling a product or by providing an online service.

The book passes on the lessons learned by the author during the 13 years that he has been building his own online businesses and it comes in the form of 12 chapters which each conclude with a useful workshop exercise where the reader is able to personalize the ideas that the author has put forward.

8 Tips for Writing More Powerful Conclusions

8 Tips for Writing More Powerful Conclusions | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
Learn how to write powerful conclusions to give your blog posts an extra punch.

What’s the toughest part of writing a blog post?

For a lot of people, it’s the conclusion. You spend a long time -- maybe hours -- writing the perfect article. You do all the outlining, research, formatting, and then you get to the end. Now what do you say?

A lot of writers whip out a half-baked conclusion, or shirk it altogether. But if your conclusion is lame, then the whole piece falls flat. The most successful articles have strong finishes, where the conclusion is one of the most powerful components of the article.

How do you write powerful conclusions for your blog posts? Luckily, it's not too complicated -- you can even follow a sort of formula. Here are my favorite tips for creating a really powerful conclusion for any blog post. Read more by clicking on title or image.

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it)

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it) | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

 Earlier this month, Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover. Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it. It’s true that many platforms go through a similar cycle: first, they present a great free opportunity, then more and more people grab it - decreasing the return for everyone until finally, the platform focuses on those ready to pay for play. It happened with Google Search; it happened with Apps (yes, Apple doesn’t sell ads but others do - such as coincidentally... Facebook). And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
So what does the decline of organic reach on Facebook and social platforms exactly mean on a practical basis?

Blogging in 2014 To Blow Your Readers Out of the Water

Blogging in 2014 To Blow Your Readers Out of the Water | Internet Presence | Scoop.it


Blogging in 2014 will be more challenging than ever. Have you formed a plan on how you will improve yourown blogging? I’ve been thinking about it for weeks and have come up with many ideas on things I’d like to do better in 2014.  Here are 9 things on my front burner for Inspire to Thrive’s blogging in 2014:

  1. Using Video More – We all have heard and read that video’s are becoming more and more important. If you listen / watch Ms. Ileane she will explain to you how to make the best videos and use of YouTube for your blog. I’m looking to start that for 2014 and purchase some inexpensive equipment to make better videos.
  2. Building The List More – Do you have an email list? Is it growing? I hope to grow mine more in 2014 with a better landing page or a better widget to capture readers attention. I’m torn with the use of pop-ups – I’d love to know your thoughts on that one!
  3. Publish Another eBook –  To help that list of mine grow, I want to publish another eBook or an updated version of my Tweeting Like It’s Second Nature. So much has changed since that first eBook on Twitter that I could easily update it with some time.

The 5 Cornerstone Values that Build an Authoritative Online Presence

The 5 Cornerstone Values that Build an Authoritative Online Presence | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

You've seen us talking a lot about authority -- authority with your audience, with search engines, with colleagues, with other web publishers.

Why do you want it? Because given the noisy, cluttered state of the web right now, it’s the authoritative site that earns the business.


  • It’s the site that delivers credible, effective solutions to customer problems.
  • It’s the site that attracts links from other authoritative publishers.
  • It’s the site that earns plenty of social sharing from an audience that wants to share high-quality, user-friendly content.
  • And it’s the site with a confident, ethical sales process that converts attention into business.

There are a lot of components to authority — site design, intelligent SEO, strategic content promotion.

But behind all of these is a single, non-negotiable element that every authoritative site needs. You’ll find a clue in the graphic that accompanies this post.

The “secret sauce” — the magic ingredient that makes the others work — is the intelligence and skill set of a talented, well-trained author.

In other words, the secret sauce is you.

How to Successfully Promote Your Blog

How to Successfully Promote Your Blog | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Many influencers talk about the 80/20 rule: you should spend 20% of your time creating content and 80% of your time promoting it. 

Although I think this ratio really depends on your job, needs and company, it does capture one thing: if you write amazing content but don’t shout out your did so, no one will hear you. And as far as promoting your blog goes, you can pick and choose on the list above the items that make most sense to your company. If for instance you work for a very technical B2B company and your target audience is above 50 years old, you might want to consider investing in LinkedIn rather than Facebook, leverage influencers and invest time in guest blogging. It all really depends on your audience, where they are and what they care about. There is one very important point I’d like to add to this infographic: it’s not content repurposing (which I thing is one of the leanest way to do content marketing, it saves an incredible amount of time), it’s content recycling.

How to Write the Perfect Blog Post: A Complete Guide to Copy. | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Want to learn how to write the perfect blog post?

Seems like an unachievable goal, right?

Maybe.

What I’m going to do today is show you a very deliberate formula and list of inclusions that I follow with my posts in order to ensure that I get results.

I’m not saying that it works every time, but I can guarantee that if you start to add these elements to your own blog posts you’ll start to get wins a lot more often.

Sound good?

What makes this the perfect blog post?

Okay, so let me do a bit of explaining.

I’m not saying that I know how to write the perfect blog post and that everything I do on my blog is perfect.

It’s not.

In fact, I really don’t like my writing that much at all. (Do all bloggers feel like that?)

But I have been blogging for quite a while now and in that time I’ve been able to hone my posts by looking at what has worked and what hasn’t over the years.

It’s basically a lot of trial and error.

Today all I am doing is sharing the elements, strategies and ideas that I have seen make a big difference to the stuff I write. I’m hoping that you might read something new, apply it to your own blog and see a big difference in your own results.

So it’s more like a quest for finding your own perfect blog post based on what has worked for me. Read more, click on image or title.

Blogging for business tips is a method used in social media and content marketing that utilizes the power of community in order to create multidimensional blog posts. Today I am going to share some incredible tips with you on how to get this right in the New Year, so that you can gain more traffic, readers and brand advocates for your small business.

Crowdsourced blogging is when you invite members of your community to contribute ideas, concepts or quotes in the comment section – that you will later turn into a high value blog post. Different voices and perspectives can make for amazing information for your blog.

Leveraging The Power of The Crowd in 2014

By now, you should have several different social communities huddled around your brand online. Your blog community, Facebook community – Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest communities are all existing assets that you can convert into great content for your blog.

Online influencers are people who have a dynamic personality that comes across online and they command the respect of other key players in their niche. Relationships with influencers are sought after by business owners because these people help shape consumer decision making by popularizing products and ideas, and promoting things across multiple channels.

The good news is that many top influencers also happen to be fairly accessible, even when you think it's impossible to connect with them. Here are five relatively easy ways to connect with powerful influencers who can hopefully help your business get to the next level:

The blogosphere is a big and busy world with over 100 million blogs and growing. How do you attract visitors to your blog? Follow these simple tips to drive ...

1. Write Well and Write Often

Frequently updating your blog with useful content is the first step to building your blog's audience. The content you write is what will keep readers coming back for more. Make sure you have something meaningful to say to them and say it often to maintain their interest and keep them loyal.

Furthermore, post frequently to increase the number of chances you have for your blog's content to be noticed by search engines such as Google or Technorati.

2. Submit Your Blog to Search Engines

Get on the radar screen for the popular search engines such as Google and Yahoo! by submitting your blog's URL to them. Most search engines provide a 'Submit' link (or something similar) to notify the search engine of your new blog, so those search engines will crawl it and include your pages in their results.

It's important to understand that simply submitting your blog to search engines doesn't mean your pages will appear at the top of a Google search results screen, but at least your blog will be included and will have the chance of being picked up by a search engine.

3. Use and Update Your Blogroll

By adding links to sites you like in your blogroll, the owners of those blogs will find your blog and will be likely to add a reciprocal link in their blogrolls. It's an easy way to get the link to your blog in front of many readers on other blogs. The hope is that some of those readers will click on the link to your blog on the other blogs' blogrolls and find your content interesting and enjoyable turning them into loyal readers.
