How to Get More Traffic from StumbleUpon

StumbleUpon is a search tool for internet surfers. By using a toolbar, users can give the thumbs up or down on recommended sites. StumbleUpon pays attention to your preferences and suggests pages based on your reaction and the reviews of others to sites. As an internet marketer, this is a great way to drive traffic to your site. Here’s how:

Embrace standard SEO procedures. For example, it’s important to tag your site in a relevant category so StumbleUpon can find you. Additionally, you’ll want to insert the StumbleUpon integration code to pages in your site. However, you also want other people to stumble your pages, so don’t list every page yourself.

Embrace standard copywriting procedures. People are going to stop and review your site if you have attention-grabbing headlines and relevant and valuable content. Some experts suggest making sure your site is extremely content rich with information that cannot be read in one sitting. That way you’ll receive repeat visits from StumbleUpon.

Build a community. In addition to becoming actively involved with StumbleUpon so you know how it works and how better to optimize your content for the site, you’ll want to build a community around your website. This way you’ll be able to actively promote StumbleUpon on your website and in your communications, and visitors will naturally visit StumbleUpon, install the toolbar and start giving you the thumbs up!

Always give something away for free. You know the drill – to build your opt-in list and traffic to your site, give them something for free. This technique drives traffic from visitors that come to you via any medium, and StumbleUpon is no different. And they’re more likely to give you a thumbs up if they’re getting something for free – reciprocity.

Embrace standard website procedures. For example, make sure your site URL is easy to remember. Make sure your site is easy to navigate and make sure it’s also appealing to the eye. People sometimes give a thumbs up just because they like the way your site looks.

Finally, ask people to rate your site. Ask friends and family to give you a StumbleUpon thumbs up. Ask current list members, customers and even associates to get on StumbleUpon and rate your site and actively promote StumbleUpon on your website(s).

StumbleUpon is a great social tool to build your website traffic, community and profits.  Use it, promote it, and follow general optimization, content and website design recommendations. Once you’re doing well on StumbleUpon, experts say your traffic can increase by as much as 800-1000 visitors each day. That’s nothing to stumble over!

How to Develop a Positive Money Mindset – Mo Money Mo Money!

The most important factor for making money has nothing to do with techniques or know-how. Your money mindset has a bigger influence on your finances than just about anything else in the world. This is why someone with no business experience and with less than $10 in their pocket can build a multi-million dollar business.

How do you develop a positive money mindset?

1. Money Isn’t Real – It’s an Expression of Value

If you study the minds of the most successful people in the world, one common understanding of money always comes up: “Money isn’t real.”

Donald Trump (no comment on this whole ‘presidential race’), in Art of the Deal, says “I’ve got more money than I’ll ever need – It’s not about the money. It’s about the art. Eventually, we all kick the bucket and none of it matters anyway.”

Felix Dennis, the man who founded Maxim Magazine, PC Magazine and many other successful publications, and is worth over $400 million dollars, is also a strong proponent that money isn’t real.

The most successful people in the world don’t focus on how to make money. Instead, they focus on how they can create value in the world.

What problems can you solve? Who can you help? How can you create value? Money is just a reflection of how many people you’ve helped and how many problems you’ve solved.

2. Act As If You’re Already Successful

“You need to be a millionaire before you can have a million dollars” — T Harv Ecker, Author of The Millionaire Mind.

Before your bank account can reflect your financial success, you need to already embody the characteristics of someone who is successful.

On a regular basis, put yourself in the shoes of your future, successful self. How would this person look, feel and think? What advice would your future self give you?

Every day, try to take on this future version of you more and more. Breathe like that person would, think like that person would, hold your body like that person would and do business like that person would.

3. Failure Is Setback – Your Success Is a Matter of Time

People who don’t succeed tend to have the mindset of starting ventures to see “if” they’ll succeed. Successful people don’t wonder if they’ll succeed; they already know it’s just a matter of time.

The question is not “if” but “when.”

Successful people regard any failure as a setback or a lesson to be learned from. There is no such thing as an irrecoverable mistake.

Incorporate these three things into your mindset. If you can really embody the creation of value while firmly holding yourself as someone who’s already successful and knowing that your success is just a matter of time, then your success is almost assured.
