This website is being put up for sale on GoDaddy.com’s domain auction site. My intention was to create a financial and investing hub under the Asset Investing banner, however I never quite had enough time and energy to devote to it. Now I’m pursuing other endeavors and have decided to let someone else work on this unique property.

Sorry This Auction Is Over. You Missed Out, But Look Into Our Great Selection Of Financial Articles

This domain/website has a solid reputation on the internet and is well respected among other financial blogs. It is over 13 years old and has received organic search engine traffic for stock market analysis, financial planning and internet business articles. It has thousands of organic back links set up by unrelated third parties and in the past has reached a Google page rank as high as four. With just a little bit of maintenance it could easily surpass that.

MajesticSEO Over The Last 5 Years – 

  • External Backlinks – 75,346
  • Referring Domains – 5,573
  • Referring IPs – 3,434

Some of the unique perks of this domain name are that it is memorable and easy to spell, and while being specific enough that all visitors know this is a financial website, it is general enough that no other companies can trademark it and take it away from you. To further protect the Asset Investing brand, I’m including other TLD’s along with the dot com. Also included in this sale are listed below.

TLDs Included With AssetInvesting.com –

  • AssetInvesting.net
  • AssetInvesting.org
  • AssetInvesting.biz
  • AssetInvesting.us
  • AssetInvesting.info
  • AssetInvesting.mobi

The website is currently running on a wordpress backend so it may be easier to start your own website from scratch. However, I am completely willing to turn over the database of articles and plugin files to prevent any 404 errors during the transition. AssetInvesting.com also runs older versions of several premium plugins and in order to update those you will need to go to the third party websites referenced in the plugin files. There are also some custom made logos and graphics which can be included in the package.

As you can probably imagine, a 13 year old website has accrued a decent social media presence. The Twitter account associated with the website has over 12,000 followers and the Facebook page that was set up has received over 250 likes. Of course Twitter and Facebook own these pages and therefore they are not specifically for sale, but control of social media accounts (that allow changes in admins) will be shifted to the new owner(s) of AssetInvesting.com. If you have any questions regarding this domain sale please ask them in the comments section of this page and I will try to respond.

Google is shutting down a few services including Buzz, the social network it had created last February, to keep pace with community giants Facebook and Twitter.

The shutdown is initiated so that the internet search giant can focus on its new Google Plus network and make way for more meaningful projects. The social networking tool led to a furor over privacy violations, as the program automatically exposed users’ private and potentially sensitive email contacts. Though the company tweaked the default setting and set-up process to allow users to manually approve their followers, the damage was already done. Horowitz said, “We aspire to build great products that really change people’s lives, products they use two or three times a day. To succeed you need real focus and thought and thought about what you work on and, just as important, what you don’t work on.

Google vice president for products, Bradley Horowitz, wrote in a blog post Friday, “In a few weeks we’ll shut down Google Buzz and the Buzz API, and focus instead on Google+.

“While people obviously won’t be able to create new posts after that, they will be able to view their existing content on their Google Profile, and download it using Google Takeout.”

“We learned a lot from products like Buzz, and are putting that learning to work every day in our vision for products like Google+. Our users expect great things from us; today’s announcements let us focus even more on giving them something truly awesome,” said Bradley Horowitz, Google vice president for products.

Google Buzz controversy:- Google Buzz, which is integrated into the company’s web-based email program Gmail, allows users to share messages, web links, photos and videos with friends and colleagues. However, the social networking tool led to a furor over privacy violations, as the program automatically exposed users’ private and potentially sensitive email contacts. Though the company tweaked the default setting and set-up process to allow users to manually approve their followers, the damage was already done.

Horowitz stated, “We learned a lot from products like Buzz, and are putting that learning to work every day in our vision for products like Google+. Our users expect great things from us; today’s announcements let us focus even more on giving them something truly awesome.”

Services being chopped:- Further, the Code Search will be shuttered along with the Code Search API on Jan. 15, 2012. Jaiku, a product acquired in 2007 that let users send updates to friends, will be axed on Jan. 15, 2012. The University Research Program for Google Search which provides direct access to Google search results will close on Jan. 15, 2012. Also, its curtains down for Google Labs site Friday, while Boutiques.com and Like.com websites will be replaced by Google Product Search.

Horowitz said, “We aspire to build great products that really change people’s lives, products they use two or three times a day. To succeed you need real focus and thought and thought about what you work on and, just as important, what you don’t work on. It’s why we recently decided to shut down some products, and turn others into features of existing products.”

Affiliate marketing is definitely a well substantiated way of earning money. But, to take up affiliate marketing as a full time profession is challenging and require relentless effort and initiative.

Your chances of success in affiliate marketing program will undeniably rise higher if you understand the following points and make your efforts accordingly.

Choose your product effectively:- Generally, affiliate marketers choose a couple of products in a hurry, due to the urge and excitement of earning profits. After a few efforts, when the marketers find that their promotions are not bearing profit, they stop believing in the genuineness of the affiliate marketing programs. This is all because the marketers choose the wrong product.

Conduct a product research:- A concise product research on product benefits and its authenticity is extremely important for affiliates to follow. This could be done through conducting news letter follow ups, reading product reviews, and gathering updates on its sales from the company reports.

Stretch out for sufficient commissions:- Affiliate marketing programs generally offers affiliates 20 to 50 percent of commission on each product sold. Again, more sales mean more commissions and for that you need to promote your products on those marketing sites which generate good number of visitors. The sites also at the same time must maintain High Sales Conversion ratio. High sales conversion ratio means the rate at which the visitors turn to sales.

Promote your product wholeheartedly!:- It is extremely significant to promote your product earnestly. Product promotion requires traffic generation through various blogs, forum posting and article submission. Finding your product-relevant websites requires timely effort and efficiency. But the trick, if once learnt efficiently, can improve your sales at ever expanding figures.

Make sure you earn every share out of your sales:- To maintain a track record on every sale made by you is as important as product promotion. It is your duty to check out that the affiliate tracking software, for example cookie tracking, used by your affiliate program is authentic and give you profit on every sale made.

Every mode of communication, through which sales are made, should be tracked; whether it is phone, fax, and emails, snail mails or others.

No, this article won’t teach you how to become a one-day millionaire. Rather, it will teach you how to improve you profits from an already-existing business.

Gone are the business scenarios of yesteryears when you have to go from block to block to sell your products. The internet craze has made selling and earning, a walk in the park. But “a walk in the park” is not really needed, when you have a computer and an internet connection.

Advertising in the local papers is passÈ. It will cost you lots of money and is not a surefire way of giving you immediate profits. So how can you can sell your products and earn profits immediately, just by cashing in on the internet rage?

1. Create a simple but powerful website. By having your own website, you reach people from all parts of the globe. You can also reach people from all walks of life. Through your own website, you can place a picture of your products, the price, the specifications, mode of payment and other information required by your target market. Through the website method, selling your products is just a click of the mouse, well, your buyer’s mouse that is. If you are not web-savvy, then you can avail of the services of website creators who charge a reasonable cost. Just make sure you are able to come up with a website that is clean, presentable and one that will answer all the query of your prospective clients. The fewer the frills and the effects, the better.

2. Motivate customers or prospective buyers to come and visit your website by offering freebies such as e-books and other tips which they may have a need for. Indirectly, when they click on the said link, they will be seeing your products. It all depends on how effective your sales pitch is, no matter how indirect it is.

3. Recognize the motivations behind your prospective clients. What do they want? What do they fear? Sell them their dreams! Play on their fear, desires, needs and wants. What are their weaknesses?

4. Maintain emails lists. You can check out the internet for websites or links that will give you information on companies or individuals that are within your target market range. Send them regular emails.

5. Send online press releases. Usually, powerful write ups on topics that are related to your products can create a need among your prospective buyers. If your product is a weight-loss pill or exercise routine, send them press releases on fitness and health or even healthy recipes.

6. Send customer survey forms; from these, you will get the pulse of your prospective clients as to what they want and what they need. Ask your clients what they want and sell it to them.

7. Have a good product to sell. If not, then get rich from other people’s products. Be a middleman, buy goods and sell them for a profit. You can just direct the manufacturer to deliver the goods to the buyer’s address.

8. Develop e-books. This will earn you immediate profits not only after you have posted your e-book, but even a long time after posting them provided it is timely and interesting. This is what we call passive income.

9. Capitalize on your clients’ psychological preference for savings by announcing special sale on selected or all your items. This can be timed during the holiday season where people are more prone to spending. Take
advantage of holidays that can be linked with your products or services. Valentines, Grandparents Day, Fathers Day, Mothers Day, Christmas and other holidays are worth taking a look at. Do you know how much profit bookstores rake in during these holidays, even just for greeting cards?

10. Personalize your services and develop a relationship with your clients. Although quite impossible for a big company, this may be possible for medium enterprises who can devise a way of tracking the birthdays of their clients, and their clients’ nearest kin or friends. By sending them reminders of someone’s birthday, this may encourage them to buy from your products or avail of your services. Definitely, this will translate to instant profit.

By using the Internet, you cut back on your costs, and increase your client base. More importantly, you immediately earn profits, not necessarily from your products but even from other people’s goodies. You only need to be imaginative, not necessarily a technology whiz kid, to earn more profits immediately and with less effort.

There are many things that people need to survive in the modern world. One of this which is quite important that helps the pay the bills, shop for commodities such as food and other needs is money.

People get jobs to have an income. Regardless if the person is single or married; it is what puts food on the table, the clothes on ones back and a place for a person to stay in.

People who decide to go into business believe that one has what it takes to succeed.

Starting on the business then later on keeping it alive will be challenging. Going into business, a person has one thing in mind and that is to make money. The ability to think of a product, analyzing how it should be delivered then deciding how to sell it to the consumer all contributes to profitability.

Here are some key principles that are the keys to success;

1. The product has to fill a need that the customers want right now. It should provide a solution of some kind that will make people feel better improving the quality of life either at home or at work.

2. A product of good quality should be sold at a decent price. Sometimes, the product one makes is already available in the market. To be competitive, one must figure out a way to convince people as to why this product is better than the other leading brands available. What features does it have that the competitor doesnít? What makes it unique which is not only about the product on hand but the service that this can give as well?

3. Being careful with what needs to be spent. By putting in tight controls in terms of expenditures and keeping track of the current balance while maintaining the same level of quality saves money which can be used for other things.

To avoid falling in this predicament, the first thing one must do is manage the expenses. It is always good to carry a notebook around to log whatever expenses have been made or have a logbook to keep track how much balance is left. That way, a person can stay within a budget on a monthly basis.

4. Cash flow is very important. This is what keeps the business in operation and continues to keep it going. Financial controls can be set up to review the expenses which are done on a regular basis. It takes money to make a little more money and in business, there are only 2 things and that is whether it is revenue or it is an expense.

5. Any business big or small must maximize marketing to get the message across to the people. One can do it the traditional way which is putting an ad in the newspaper, the radio and the television. The other is using alternative forms such as the net and the use of key people such as celebrities to endorse the product.

Even as marketing has reached the digital age, it does not mean that traditional marketing is obsolete. Both methods still need strategy, creativity and vision of what is to be achieved.

By making the team or the departments pool the existing resources and by working together with tremendous speed and being able to be one step ahead of other competitors, the business will continue to press on with what products are good for the market as rivals who want to compete for a share will do the same.

6. Being able to sell is what keeps the business alive. The key to be successful in business is simple and that is to sell. The key to doing it is having the ability to sell oneself and the product to the customer.

Proper training on the benefits and features of the product is equally important. Being able to update on the latest trends and being ahead of the competitor will continue to make the brand on top of the others.

It is hard to sell and convince the customer about a certain product if one does not believe in it.

All businesses started from small and humble beginnings. Some started in a garage or just from the home then one day, that person stumbled upon something, realized its potential then went for it.
