Happy Halloween!


Hey everyone, Happy Halloween!  Just wanted to share some family fun with you and hope you will share your family Halloween night with me as well.

Tonight the little ghosts and goblins come out in full force.  I will be at the door and if it’s anything like last year, I may as well leave it open because there were about 80 plus kids coming through.

The dogs will be on a lead for the entire night as I could not open the door without one of them running out.  As it is, the kids do get greeted by the dogs but they can only go just outside the front door.  Some of the kids are afraid of the dogs until they see that they are harmless. 

I love seeing the kids in their costumes and it’s nice to see that a mom or dad is along for the entire night of Halloween fun. 

When we were growing up we lived in a rural area and to get even one little treat we had to trek for miles.  I can remember walking with the rustling leaves and many times the cold wind and rain at our backs.  This didn’t detour us as we were pretty much determined to get as much candy as we possibly could.  We used pillow cases as our bags and would come home with a whopping load of goodies.  The bags were half full by the time we arrived home and we certainly were wet and weary.  I can remember how we each chose a spot to unload the goods so that we could view our treasure. 

The candy didn’t last long as we were not used to getting treats often.  Many time we made ourselves sick from eating too much of it.  Those were wonderful memories and ones that I brought into my household with my own children.  I always made sure that they didn’t eat too much candy and if they were unable to control themselves, I would have to take the candy and put it away for the next day. 

When my kids were growing up, I usually made their costumes.  We would go out to buy props to make the costumes look scarier or more convincing.  I can remember making a Lion costume for my son and princess dresses for the girls. When they got to the early teens, they chose costumes that were definitely scary!  The Grim Reaper, Spider Woman, and Bride of Frankenstein were some of their choices.  I laugh because they really wanted to be ghoulish and ugly.  Guess that’s part of being a teen. 

Even the dogs get in on the fun!

I would love to hear some of your stories.  Please comment below and let me know how your night of terror went along with some pictures. 

Have a frightful night,

In my last blog I promised to send a video critiquing one of my blogs that has been written for SEO purposes.  Watch as I go through the process so that you will be able to have your own blogs ready for Google keyword searches and perhaps have that same blog showing in one of ten spots on Google’s front page. 

I hope this was somehow helpful for you and the link below will get you started blogging and making money on the side. 

Monetize your blog here!

All the best for your success,

After writing your blog you may ask yourself whether or not this blog is going to make it to one of the top 10 spots on a Google search.  Sometimes the blog will make it there on its own from pure content depending on the subject.  But most of the time, it will not.  There are not humans reading each blog, the bots and spiders look to the blog for keywords that tells Google what your blog is about.  Those keywords have to be strategically placed and your blog needs to be optimized so Google knows what the writing is all about and can give you rank based on the competition from other bloggers that are already on the web. 

Usually the newest and most popular blogs will be shown first in a Google search.  Google is in the business to make money.  So in order to make money they need two things.  The first is to be relevant to their users.  If Google is not relevant to the people who do the searches and they play favorites then the viewing public will go elsewhere.  Google doesn’t want that because they make their money from advertisers.  All of the ads on the very top and the ads on the right side of the Google platform are paid advertisers.  The advertisers pay a price per click for anyone who will click on the advertisement.  This is how Google stays in business so they need relevant blogs or websites that correspond to the topic or keyword. 

Knowing all this, you can give Google what they want.  They are looking for relevant information to a keyword or topic.  It’s in your best interest to point out to the Google’s bots and spiders what your main keyword or idea is so that they can give you some Google love!  Now I can go into how to do a keyword search to find the best keyword or keyword phrases but is a long explanation and I will have to do that in another blog. 

For training purposes, I will critique one of my own blogs to show you just what I am talking about in the way of preparing your blog with the right keywords and emphasizing the words correctly so that you don’t have too many or too few for the best optimization.  SEO optimization is a learned skill.  There are many marketers out there who are more proficient than me.  But at least I will give you the basics and you can seek out other training from the professionals.  My job is just to give you a head start on the skill and you can perfect it as you go along. 

And who knows, you may find that just learning a few of these skills will get you the results that you want.  Won’t you be surprised if you write your blog, optimize it for SEO and find yourself on page one in Google.  Training and team work will get you going faster than anything that you can do on your own.  So, write your blog and monetize it with the training you will receive with the products below. 

Get the blogging platform by signing up with the link below.  Keep in mind that you will be reselling this product and one “all in” sale is a $3,000 commission to you.  Not a bad commission return for writing some blogs, eh?

Home School for Home Business – What do I Blog About?

You may ask, “What do I Blog About?”  That is a very good question and one that many a newbie has asked.  Once you have your blog, it’s very easy to start writing about your favorite topic.  If you have a passion or love of a specific sport or hobby then blogging should be easy for you.  Just write about what you know or teach someone something related to your hobby.  You don’t necessarily need to be writing about marketing online unless, of course, that is your favorite thing to do.  Use your imagination and think about something that people want to know about.  Was there something that you didn’t know and you finally found the answer…then, share that with the world.  Someone else is asking the same questions that you have asked.  With internet marketing, I just blog about stuff that I have learned.  It’s a way of sharing knowledge with others who seek answers.  If you are a golfer, perhaps you have a method of making the perfect put.  If you are a deer hunter, maybe you know the right way to skin a deer.  The ideas are limitless.  You just need to sit down and think it through. 

Home School for Home Business – Blog Structure

Here is a basic blogging structure that has worked for me in my home business. 

Blog Title:

Choose an Interesting Catchy Title for your Blog.  Nothing attracts readers more than something that’s upbeat and interesting.  Or choose something that begs a question.  The reader may have asked themselves that very same question.  Give them a reason to read your blog.

Blog First Paragraph:

The first paragraph should give the reader a clue as to what is to come.  Give them an indication about what you will reveal in the coming paragraphs of your blog.  Choose three topic areas that you would like to discuss.  You don’t have to be a novelist or book writer but give the reader a reason to continue to read your blog. 

Blog Second Paragraph:

Choose one of the three topic areas to write a full paragraph.  Give the reader lots of describing words or what I call picture words so that they get an image in their minds.  Discuss details in your blogging so that they know what you are trying to reveal to them.  The more picturesque and detailed you are in your writing, the more you will capture the reader’s attention. 

Blog Third and Fourth Paragraphs:

These paragraphs should be about your other two topic areas of your blog.  Use the full paragraph for describing each topic as fully and as colorfully as you can.  Pretend you are writing a paper for your teacher.  Use your blog as a means of communicating your message to the reader.  Blogging is an easy way to get your stuff noticed to the right people. 

Last Paragraph:

In this paragraph of your blog, you will want to sum up all of the aforementioned topics.  This is also the paragraph where you will lure them into your offer.  Find a way to direct the reader’s attention to your offer by tying the product/service into your written blog.  You will want a “Call to Action” in this paragraph.  There is a reason why you are writing a blog…you are selling stuff!  Don’t forget to ask for the sale.  This is the place to do that and if you haven’t picked up the blog yet then go to this link and fill out your information for a blog that is already set up for you to do business.

Home School for Home Business is about teaching willing participants to make money online by blogging while still home educating their children.  The beauty of home school is that you can teach in the mornings and then have the afternoons open for working your home business.  This works very well as you can have the best of both worlds; that being the careful education of your children plus a very lucrative home business.  You can’t do this with any business opportunity as most of them do not pay you enough in the way of commissions to support a family.   I have chosen one that I know works and can work for you as well. 

Just to give you a little of my background, I am a former home school mom who taught from home for 15 years.  My three children are now all college educated; two have graduated and one will finish in December of 2014.  Success leaves clues and my greatest triumph has been to raise my children with my core values and not society’s poor example that exists within our current education system.  With that being said, I am not here to discuss all the benefits of home education.  You already know those benefits.  I am here to educate you, the home school parent, in the ways of marketing online to make money from a home business.

Blogging for Home School for Home Business

So much money has been made from Blogging.  I could go on and on about how much has been made by doing this simple thing every day.  To explain, any time you put content on the internet it is like buying real estate online.  You have a footprint with your blog.  This footprint stays online for many years.  The cumulative effect is so staggering.  You don’t even realize that blogging every day builds clout!  It builds influence with like minded people.  People start looking to you as an expert in the subject that you choose to blog about which could be about home school.  So why not use the blog to make money in your home business and discuss your passions at the same time? 

Keep in mind that you do not need to know everything about your product to succeed online.  You just need one thing…and that is to take consistent action with your home business.  If you are going to blog,  do it every day (or at least 5 days per week) consistently!  Skipping days is not allowed if you want success!  Do you realize that 800 blogs could mean 2 to 3 sign ups per day.  And the company that I am talking about pays out a $3,000 commission for one “all in” sale ($3,995 for the discounted sale of all the products) within the first 7 days of the new member signing up.  Commissions are 70% of the purchase price.  Products range from $25, $100, $500, $1,000 to the top training product of $3,500. 

I am sure you can work the numbers yourself and because I am talking about commissioned sales, I must mention that results will vary (please see our income disclosure at:  http://empowernetwork.com/income.php

Getting Started with Home School for Home Business

The first thing you need is a blogging platform to put your blog on.  Go here and sign up for your blog:  http://ibourl.com/16hu   It’s a Word Press blog with all the necessary plug-ins already set up for you to get started right away.  This product costs $25 per month and I realize that you can get a Word Press blog for free.  However, you cannot resale a Word Press blog and make money.  Plus the learning curve is steep so it may take you a month and a half to get it up and running.  Not so with our blogging platform.  It’s all set up so that you have the advantage of instant blogging capabilities as well as allowing for Google to like you more rapidly and give you some Google love by allowing your blog on page one of a search.  When you have everything that Google is looking for from the beginning…you are more likely to get on that front page.  The top 10 spots on a Google search for a specific key word are the coveted spots as most people searching do not go beyond the front page to find what they seek.
