Here’a good video tutorial I made on how to do image conversions online. I tested this online image conversion service by uploading a PNG file and converting this to JPG. Previously, I need to download an image conversion software before I can do such image conversions. But now, with this free online service, I was able to convert the image.
Neat huh? You can also select other formats not just JPG.

No.1 In Google In Just 11 Minutes!!!
It’s been quite a while since my last post. I was busy with experiments and building my other blogs. I was able to rank well on highly searched keywords in just a few minutes. Although not all #1 but landing on the first page of google really helped my other blog to really hit it big.
I used the technique to rank high on a certain celebrity related keyword which was a hot search back then. In just 11 minutes, I was able to hit #1 in google and I managed to get tons of absolutely FREE traffic. (see screen shot below)
Case Study#1 ScreenShot
As you can see in the above screenshot, I highlighted the “11 minutes ago” meaning it was posted about 11 minutes before I ran that search query in google.
I won’t be able to share the whole secret and process because I plan to share this either in a virtual classroom, a book perhaps, or most probably a ProBlogger/SEO/SEM/Internet Marketing membership site that I plan to make.
But here’s one tip that I can share.
One of the most important is the choice of keywords. Everyday, there are new searches being made. New keywords are being used, one just have to know which of these keywords have less competition and it easy to penetrate. It is quite a time consuming process actually but I have some tricks on my sleeve that enables me to easily find out these “precious keywords”.
Here’s What I Plan To Do
Everyday, I will try to post here in my blog, a list of keywords that are highly searched during that day and have less competition so that you can make a blog post using those keywords and hopefully increase your blog income. There might be days that I am so busy but I’ll try to make it a daily habit as much as possible.
Here’s What you need to do
Everyday, check out my blog and look for my post about the latest keywords I found. I usually find a lot and I don’t make blog posts for each and every one of them which is why I’m sharing this to you.
Do I have to pay anything to get these keywords?
No. These are free. You can use it, or not, it’s totally up to you.
So What’s The Catch?
The catch? I’ll be posting a list of my monetization methods somewhere in the sidebar perhaps and if in case you would like to monetize your blog, just click on my affiliate link, sign up under me. That’s the catch.
So let me start with today’s popular keywords (September 24)
1. Strongest Dog In The World – there has been a lot of searches about this today. Some of the blog posts where you can use as reference are
2. Eastwick imdb – It’s a tv show by ABC.
related keywords:eastwick tv show, eastwick, eastwick abc, eastwick wiki, eastwick tv show cast
3. Khloe Kardashian Wedding – She’s the sister of Kim Kardashian of the TV reality show “keeping up with the kardasians”. She’s about to marry L.A. Lakers beau Lamar Odom on Sunday.
related keywords: khloe kardashian, khloe kardashian married, khloe kardashian engagement ring, khloe kardashian boyfriend, kardashian wedding
So go ahead and make those blog posts.

Write To Be Scanned
Your layout is very important in a sales letter, because you want your letter to look inviting, refreshing to the eyes. In short, you want your prospect to stop what he’s doing and read your letter.
If he sees a letter with tiny margins, no indentations, no breaks in the text, no white space, and no subheads…if he sees a page of nothing but densely-packed words, do you think he’ll be tempted to read it?
If you do have ample white space and generous margins, short sentences, short paragraphs, subheads, and an italicized or underlined word here and there for emphasis, it will certainly look more inviting to read.
When reading your letter, some prospects will start at the beginning and read word for word. Some will read the headline and maybe the lead, then read the “P.S.” at the end of the letter and see who the letter is from, then start from the beginning.
And some folks will scan through your letter, noticing the various subheads strategically positioned by you throughout your letter, then decide if it’s worth their time to read the entire thing. Some may never read the entire letter, but order anyways.
You must write for all of them. Interesting and compelling long copy for the studious reader, and short paragraphs and sentences, white space, and subheads for the skimmer.
Subheads are the smaller headlines sprinkled throughout your copy.
When coming up with your headline, some of the headlines that didn’t make the cut can make great subheads. A good subhead forces your prospect to keep reading, threading him along from start to finish throughout your copy, while also providing the glue necessary to keep skimmers skimming.

The More You Tell, The More You Sell
The debate on using long copy versus short copy never seems to end. Usually it is a newcomer to copywriting who seems to think that long copy is boring and, well…long. “I would never read that much copy,” they say.
The fact of the matter is that all things being equal, long copy will outperform short copy every time. And when I say long copy, I don’t mean long and boring, or long and untargeted.
The person who says he would never read all that copy is making a big mistaking in copywriting: he is going with his gut reaction instead of relying on test results. He is thinking that he himself is the prospect. He’s not. We’re never our own prospects.
There have been many studies and split tests conducted on the long copy versus short copy debate. And the clear winner is always long copy. But that’s targeted relevant long copy as opposed to untargeted boring long copy.
Some significant research has found that readership tends to fall off dramatically at around 300 words, but does not drop off again until around 3,000 words.
If I’m selling an expensive set of golf clubs and send my long copy to a person who’s plays golf occasionally, or always wanted to try golf, I am sending my sales pitch to the wrong prospect. It is not targeted effectively. And so if a person who receives my long copy doesn’t read past the 300th word, they weren’t qualified for my offer in the first place.
It wouldn’t have mattered whether they read up to the 100th word or 10,000th word. They still wouldn’t have made a purchase.
However, if I sent my long copy to an avid die-hard golfer, who just recently purchased other expensive golf products through the mail, painting an irresistible offer, telling him how my clubs will knock 10 strokes off his game, he’ll likely read every word. And if I’ve targeted my message correctly, he will buy.
Remember, if your prospect is 3000 miles away, it’s not easy for him to ask you a question. You must anticipate and answer all of his questions and overcome all objections in your copy if you are to be successful.
And make sure you don’t throw everything you can think of under the sun in there. You only need to include as much information as you need to make the sale…and not one word more.
If it takes a 10-page sales letter, so be it. If it takes a 16-page magalog, fine. But if the 10-page sales letter tests better than the 16-page magalog, then by all means go with the winner.
Does that mean every prospect must read every word of your copy before he will order your product? Of course not.
Some will read every word and then go back and reread it again. Some will read the headline and lead, then skim much of the body and land on the close. Some will scan the entire body, then go back and read it. All of those prospects may end up purchasing the offer, but they also all may have different styles of reading and skimming

If you’re going to make a single change to boost your response rate the most, focus on your headline (you do have one, don’t you?).
Why? Because five times as many people read your headline than your copy. Quite simply, a headline is…an ad for your ad. People won’t stop their busy lives to read your copy unless you give them a good reason to do so. So a good headline promises some news and a benefit.
Perhaps you’re thinking, “What’s this about news, you say?”
Think about the last time you browsed through your local newspaper. You checked out the articles, one by one, and occasionally an ad may have caught your eye. Which ads were the ones most likely to catch your eye?
The ones that looked like an article, of course.
The ones with the headline that promised news.
The ones with fonts and type that closely resembled the fonts and type used in articles.
The ones that were placed where articles were placed (as opposed to being placed on a full page of ads, for example).
And the ones with the most compelling headlines that convinced you it’s worth a few minutes to read the copy.
The headline is that powerful and that important.
I’ve seen many ads over the years that didn’t even have a headline. And that’s just silly. It’s the equivalent of flushing good money spent on advertising right down the toilet.
Why? Because your response can increase dramatically by not only adding a headline, but by making that headline almost impossible to resist for your target market.
And those last three words are important. Your target market.
For example, take a look at the following headline:
Announcing…New High-Tech Gloves Protect Wearer Against Hazardous Waste
News, and a benefit.
Will that headline appeal to everyone?
No, and you don’t care about everyone.
But for someone who handles hazardous waste, they would sure appreciate knowing about this little gem.
That’s your target market, and it’s your job to get them to read your ad. Your headline is the way you do that.
Ok, now where do you find great headlines?
You look at other successful ads (especially direct response) that have stood the test of time. You look for ads that run regularly in magazines and other publications. How do you know they’re good? Because if they didn’t do their job, the advertiser wouldn’t keep running them again and again.
You get on the mailing lists of the big direct response companies like Agora and Boardroom and save their direct mail packages.
You read the National Enquirer.
Huh? You heard that correctly.
The National Enquirer has some of the best headlines in the business.
Pick up a recent issue and you’ll see what I mean. Ok, now how could you adapt some of those headlines to your own product or service?
Your headline should create a sense of urgency. It should be as specific as possible (i.e. say $1,007,274.23 instead of “a million dollars”).
The headline appearance is also very important. Make sure the type used is bold and large, and different from the type used in the copy. Generally, longer headlines tend to out pull shorter ones, even when targeting more “conservative” prospects.
On each page, click on the individual products in order to view the ads and headlines.
It should go without saying that when you use other successful headlines, you adapt them to your own product or service. Never copy a headline (or any other written copyrighted piece of work for that matter) word for word. Copywriters and ad agencies are notoriously famous for suing for plagiarism. And rightfully so.

What I’m going to reveal is a very recent legal tactic that will enable anybody to simple copy the exact keywords people are using in their PPC campaigns and how you can benefit from it and make money.
Surprisingly, you need a simple FREE PPC Spy too called – PPC Web Spy
I’ll show you one example of how you can benefit and make money from this free tool.
A lot of people are using Pay per click advertising. The best one internet marketers use is Google Adwords simply because of the volume of traffic it can generate.
Let me start by finding a good product in clickbank. Let’s say I choose the product SEO Elite. (note: I own a copy of SEO elite and I really know how powerful it is.) This product was developed by a guy named Brad Callen.
I’m sure Brad is making money selling this software as he’s been doing this for years now. Would it be nice to find out exactly what keywords he is using to promote his software? Ok let’s find out.
First I did a search in google for the keyword “seo software”
Let me grab the google results page for this search so I can show you
So if you notice, the adwords on the right side has a GREEEN button called “View Keywords”. This is what you will see on every google search you do once you install the Free PPC Spy tool.
Notice that at the bottom is the exact adwords ad that Brad Callen the owner of Seo Elite is using. How do I know that? The URL says it all (www.seoelite.com).
Now the fun part begins.
All I have to do is click this green button and the result is something like this.
A window will appear which contain the keyword, the position, the Ave CPC, the Max CPC, the Clicks/Day and the Costs/Day.
With this much power, you would be insane if you can’t find a way to make money out of it.
And if you want me to spoon feed you, here’s what you do.
1. Just create your own clickbank account (this is free)
2. Go to google adwords or any PPC advertising company and bid on the same keywords. If you know the average cost per click, and max CPC, you can play around with it. You can start biding on the Average CPC price and work your way up to get as many clicks as possible while still being profitable.
How to Grab the Keywords
Inside the PPC Spy window, there’s a button there called copy to clipboard. All you need to do is to click on this and paste the keywords to your spreadsheet or notepad and you instantly have a winning PPC keyword list.
