    The 200 MPH Challenge

    0                0

    Well guys, hope you have enjoyed my interviews and posts thus far but now I am going to ask you to take a second to read this. As many of you already know, I’ve just entered to win a seat in AffiliateWire’s incredible adventure contest. The contest is Lethal Velocity: The 200MPH Challenge. Yeah, I know. It is pretty BAD ASS. The prize is totally out-of-sight. The blogger with the most votes (currently as of this post – I am in 3rd place) gets to drive an exotic supercar down an airstrip in the Mojave Desert. The challenge is to crack the 200MPH barrier and take your place in an exclusive group of other drivers who have reached this prestigious milestone.

    To win, I need as many votes as I can get and that’s where you come in.

    Just click here and VOTE FOR ME or click on the banner below. I would be the one that says, “Ricky Ahuja – rickyahuja.com” – just click on the radio button and then click on VOTE. Simple as that.

    I really appreciate it. Should I win, I’ll be sure to blog about the experience when I get back!

    Many thanks and Much love,

    Rick

    Top 10 things I learned from Affiliate Summit West 2012

    So I was able to finally bless ASW in Vegas with my awesome presence.   While I do know a lot, I am always down with attaining some more knowledge whether life related or affiliate marketing related.   So I stayed at Caesars Palace, a monstrosity of a place like my gut and love for steak.  And I do love steak, based on the $90 32oz Wagyu Beef Bone Ribeye I demolished.   That’s right scoreboard, Affiliate Slayer 1, Cows 0.   One more thing across the street from Caesars is large billboard on the Flamingo Casino with the shadow painting of Donnie and Marie Osmond which says “absolutely fabulous.”“WTF, Absolutely Fabulous?”  What the heck is so fabulous about Donne and Marie Osmond?   Who the heck goes and sees the Osmonds in Vegas, isn’t there anything else to do?  Can’t the Flamingo put something else on the side of the building facing Caesar’s palace main entrance that doesn’t impair myvision?  The Osmonds, how uncool and untalented is that phenomenon?

    Anyway now that I have officially wasted your time with my usual BS spewing from my vast intellect let’s focus on what I have and hopefully you have learned from Vegas and ASW.

    1)      Blue men and a blue chick dressed in blue stockings should be kept to a Vegas show, not the ASW floor.   It took several passings by them all over the casino and tradeshow floor to realize they were trying to brand something, but I don’t know what that was as the text was a little small.   I guess somebody had to some dough to blow and doesn’t know about branding effectively.  Although I would consider it a branding of an annoyance; they achieved that.

    2)      O2 is a luxury at Caesars.

    3)      There is some crappy overpriced food at Caesars

    4)      Caesars is confusing to get around the first time you walk in.  Everything is scattered and seems dysfunctional like a Jerry Springer show

    5)      Some big networks, which will remain nameless, seemed to not attract much attention at their meet market tables.  Very surprising……

    10 Ways to Brand Your Blog Efficiently

    0                0

    This is a blog post by Daniel Scocco.

    On the latest State of the Blogosphere report, Wikipedia claimed that they are tracking over 156 million public blogs. That is a freaking lot of them. If we take into consideration standard websites as well, this number will be even bigger. The result? Hundreds, if not thousands of blogs and websites on virtually every single niche on the web.

    You can also bet that a good percentage of those will be offering outstanding quality content just like you do, so the competition is fierce.

    Under those circumstances, how can you make sure that your blog or website will stand out of the crowd and attract visitors?
    In one word: branding.

    Bricks and mortar businesses have discovered the importance of branding decades ago, but on the web this is a relatively new trend (just five years ago you didn’t have that many websites around after all).Below we are going to cover 10 ways to brand your blog or website efficiently.

     

    1. Having a Clear Purpose

    You must have a crystal clear vision about the purpose of your website, and you must communicate that to the visitors as well. They must know why they are visiting your website. Why it is worth their time.

    “I am going to write about tech” ain’t going to cut it. What part of technology you are going to write about? Gadgets? Web 2.0? What angle you are going to have? Breaking news? Deep analysis? Where will the value to your readers come from?

    You need to be able to answer to those questions easily.

    Your aim is to make people associate a concept or thing with your website. If I say online video, you are going to think YouTube. If I say funny pictures of cats, you are going to think I Can Has Bheezburger. If I say gadgets, you are going to think Engadget or Gizmodo.
    You get the idea. Now you must make this with your own website. It is not easy, and it takes time, but you should always keep this principle in mind.

     

    2. Being Consistent with the Writing Style

    There are many studies confirming that the …read more
