Installing a WordPress Blog

Today I recorded this video to show you how easy it is to install
a WordPress blog. It’s easier watching then reading instructions,
isn’t it?!

So, I didn’t go into all the functionalities WordPress offers I
just want to help you get started.  I am not any “guru” in WordPress
but I just wanted to give you a few tips on how to personalize your
blog with themes and plugins.

WordPress Themes

You can download good themes for your blog here:

http://webdesignlessons.com (it’s where I got mine)

http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/

To install themes go to Appearance / Add New Themes in your dashboard
and click on “Upload”.

Plugins

Here are some of the plugins I use on my blog and recommend:

All In One Seo Pack by Michael Torbert
Google XML Site Maps by Arne Brachhold
Google Analyticator by Spiral Web Consulting
Sociable by Blogplay

Plugin is what allows you to optimize your blog for search engines and
add several features to make your blog more interactive and dynamic.

Installing plugins is not difficult but can be a little tricky if you
never worked with it and require some time to set all up. I recommend
that you go into plugins only after you’re already familiar with the
basic functionalities of WordPress such as adding posts, pages, links
and media files.

Ways to Promote Your Blog

– Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc…)
– Commenting on other blogs
– Bookmarking
– E-mail signature
– Linking to related blogs
– Newsletter
– Internal links in your blog
– Become Active in forums
– Article Marketing

I hope this post helps you to set up your blog!

Have a great day!

Product Review: Prosperity Rising

Hi there,

Today I would like to share with you this new site I’ve found, actually the moment I first saw this program I didn’t give so much attention but a few days later my good friend and coach Janet Legere told me about her experience with prosperity rising, so I decided to try it out. What I found is that this simple to use system can not only help you drive massive targeted traffic to your website but build a downline in several programs built-in the system.

Prosperity Rising is a new site that says it guarantees more CONVERTING web visitors and online advertising with very little effort or cost.  So I decided to put it to the test…

My first impression was the site looks professional and clean, with an attractive look and feel.  It is easy to read and understand.  Joining the site was easy and painless–they do offer 2 upgrade options but they are not required to gain the benefits.

The Members Area is very well laid out and intuitive–I could figure out what to do after only a few minutes and was able to get up and running in less than 5 minutes.  Inside the site, you create links and ads–the links you simply enter any URL links you use into the generator and it transforms them into “Prosperity Rising” links.  You create ads for anything you want to promote using the Prosperity Rising Ad Generator, which is very easy to use.  You can create as many links and as many ads as you like.  And they are organized in a logical way–links are displayed in the order you create them but also your 5 most recent links appear on the main page for quick reference.  Also, since the link generator is the tool you’ll use most, it is also right at the top of the main page when you login.  Very smart!

After you’ve created at least 1 link and 1 ad you can start to generate traffic.  Just use and promote the new Prosperity Rising link instead of the original source link you had.  Every time the Prosperity Rising link is clicked, the page loads followed by a cool slide-up ad window at the bottom.  It displays an ad PLUS an image with your affiliate link that goes back to Prosperity Rising.  So if anyone clicks the Prosperity Rising image they see the site, and if they signup they become your referral.  It’s a great viral feature because you can build referrals without even trying to just by using the site.

Now every time the ad window displays (your Prosperity Rising links get clicked) you earn credits that get YOUR ad displayed in the ad windows when other members’ links get clicked.  So the more clicks, the more times your ads get displayed.

And this works virally–meaning as you make referrals into Prosperity Rising (either by promoting it or just using it and visitors click the Prosperity Rising image on the ad window to join) you also earn ad credits on THEIR link clicks.  And this works up to 5 levels deep.  So you can create a massive amount of free ad views and web traffic by referring others to Prosperity Rising also.

I didn’t get to test the full effect of a big downline yet (I just got the tool) but I can tell you the rest of the site works exactly as stated–my links got clicked, I earned credits, and my ads got displayed.  Prosperity Rising even tracked my results so I know how many clicks and how many ad displays.  That was an impressive unadvertised extra feature.

There is one more benefit and feature which might be the best of them all–downline emailing.  You can email your downline with offers, promotions, or whatever you like, and here is where Prosperity Rising really shines.  They took time to make the emailing often enough that it’s valuable as a user, but no so often that it’s a burden to your downline.  But the best part about this feature (and actually the credit earning too) is that it tells you exactly how long until you can mail again.  Now THAT’s cool.

Overall I have to say I am impressed with Prosperity Rising.  It is simple yet powerful, and delivers on its promises.  Highly recommended to anyone who wants to increase traffic and advertising.

P.S.: Prosperity Rising is not meant to distract you from marketing your business online, quite the opposite, it’s designed to help you increase traffic and increase your income.
