Are you stuck in a profit slump? Do you feel like you can only accomplish enough in a day to simply maintain, but not increase your profits?
If so, it may be time to outsource. There are only so many tasks one person can perform. When quantity starts to surpass quality, the result could be disastrous to an online business.
It can be difficult to weigh the advantages of outsourcing, especially when money is an issue. If you are struggling to achieve more, but you do not want to outsource your work, let me encourage you to think about it another way.
Content creation is not just about the content YOU add to your website; it also refers to the content users add to your site.
In internet marketing, this is called user-generated content.
Comments are not only valuable because they add useful information to a website, but they also keep your website fresh. In addition, more comments leads to a greater sense of community which leads to users spending more time on your site. Visitors enjoying your site and spending time navigating contributes to higher Google rankings. Essentially, user-generated comments are a win-win for any website.
Comments are also a great way to rank for additional keywords you may not have researched and they can help to make your site more relevant to its industry.
Video marketing is one of the most effective ways to display your leadership potential in a niche. Though videos have been around for years and utilized by many web businesses, they still are part of the “innovative” category and viewers appreciate the media form.
Videos increase your online presence and boost traffic to your website. Essentially, they can “put you on the map.” Marketers shy away from creating videos because they think it involves having a studio, high-priced cameras and professional video equipment. This is simply not true.
Creating videos will put you in a different league. Everyone writes articles, but not as many marketers create videos.

What are you doing wrong? It’s not necessarily what you are doing wrong, but what you could be doing RIGHT.
Let’s break this down further so I can explain…
If you have been hanging around the internet marketing “water cooler” for a while, you most likely have written your share of articles. Whether for your website, case study, newsletter or any other piece, articles are one of the most common forms of content and knowing how to write a quality one is an essential trait to making money on the internet.
Many internet marketers are not writers and even though Google loves content, poorly-written articles will not succeed online. Quality content is a “must have” in this modern online environment.
The “Real” Problem
While a skilled writer will help your cause, proper grammar is only the first step to writing quality articles. The research, topic and focus of the article are some of the most important components. Once these elements are in place, all that is left is the writing of the actual article.
