How To Success In Online Business

With the growth of smartphone adoption, more businesses are setting up online and this lead to strong competition among all the online businesses. In order to succeed, there are important things which we need to do in order to attract and engage customers to do business with us.

Have A Vision for your Online Business

In order to transform your business in big way, you need to have a vision of how your Online Business going to be.

Many great leaders have a clear vision of what they want to do in life, and they setup to realize their vision in their daily life. By having a thoughtful and deliberate planning in your business, you can realize it sooner.

As your business evolve, you need to continue reimage and reshape your vision. Align to the changes the world is revolving each day, and you will be relevant at each stage of your business.

Vision help you to realize your business goal fasterGive customer the best deal and highest value

To win the heart of our customers, we need to understand their problems, desires and serve them well and this require us to be an expert in that field. We can help our client by providing free training to them, educate them what are the necessary skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their business. By helping them eventually help our business, this is the new business strategy we need to adopt.

We must be a valuable resource for customer to refer when they need help and advise. By emphasising of giving the highest value to them, we create value for them to approach us. Offer online resource of free information is a very effective platform to attract new customers.

Every body want to do business with someone who knows what they are doing and saying. Customer want us to help them with their problems so they can stop searching for the solution.

A lot of companies are reluctant to give and they want to receive or get commitment from their customers, before they start doing their business. By giving first to get later is a better business solution to your customers. When customer receive the solution from you with your help, they will reciprocate back and do business with you willingly. As long as your give do not lead you to be broke, it is absolutely right to give first and receive later.

When you freely share with others your expertise and experience, you are not giving away yours and all your expertise and experience still with you. You are just sharing them with others. By sharing with others, and they will appreciate what you have offered and they will return with more to you.

Getting business from customer require them to first know you, and second to like you and eventually trusting you. The combination of know + like + trust will lead to believe in you. With this success formula, you will have the business from that customer.

Be useful to your customers

To succeed in this competitive world, you must focus energy on creating useful information your customers want. Stay relevant to their needs and they will pay for it.

Today customers have more information than before and they can easily access internet for any information they want. Self-serve information is everywhere and most customers utilise it for their purchase decision.

People want to know how your products and services will solve their problem and they want to know why your solution is better than others, especially your competitors.

For consumer products, most of them buy for one of the 2 reasons. Either they like to have pleasure (for example relaxing, good food, becoming popular) or they wish to reduce pain (like stress, poor health, financial problem). When you are communicating with them, tell them the benefits of your products and services.

Building trust

Search engines love blog content therefore you need to have a good content platform to publish right contents for them to find you. You can expand more articles, workshops and ebooks on your platform.

Creating social media profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, BusinessWeek, Entrepreneur, Inc. Online magazine communities. You can build rich profiles and get all the links, images, and videos pointing back to your website. Ratings and reviews sites are useful content hubs you can connect and participate in to get more exposure to increase your online presence.

A content telling people what makes your company different, how your company approach customer service and why your company do what it do will build more trust in their heart. Presentations, workshops, and seminars are very effective ways to provide education and allow deep engagement with the customers. FAQs allows value of information packaged in a simple format and help position your company favourably against competition. Telling success stories of how your customers succeed through the use of your product or service offerings help people learn from others.

Try to answer below questions and put that within your content. You will have the right content to attract potential customers to your site:

  • What are the top 5 results your customers want to achieve?
  • How your offerings different from your competititors?

Organic SEO to win business

There are 4 key factors which will help you to generate more leads for your business. First is creating a lot of useful and valuable contents. This is the foundation of your online presence. And you must create different flavours of contents to attract potential clients to you.

I would like to suggest a method which I used currently to put my post on the first page of Google. Follow the steps which I outline here and go through the steps, and you will see your post get improve in ranking. Eventually it will reach the 1st page.

But bear in mind, Google consider the freshness of the content as one of the ranking factors. Therefore, constantly update your content is essential to win the race.

The last update of this post content was Aug 9, 2018 and today (Nov 10, 2019) I put in additional content to update it. Let’s see how it rank in Google search.

Here are the 6 steps you may follow:

  • Step 1: Go to Google Search Engine, key in this phrase how to get on page 1 on google.
  • Step 2: Copy the URL of those SERP appearing on Google 1st, 2nd and 3rd page.
  • Step 3: Paste them into an Excel sheet and sort SERP by the ranking.
  • Step 4: Start reading and analyse all contents written by SEO writers.
  • Step 5: Implement suggestion by top ranking writers. First with the one on position o and follow by rank 1, 2, 3…..
  • Step 6: Check Google ranking result, re-tune your content and improve further.

Step 1: Go to Google Search Engine, key in this phrase how to get on page 1 on google

Google is the number 1 search engine people use, it is the place people go to when they want to search for information they need. Therefore, it is important for you to know How To Get On Page 1 of Google. The method you use on Google Search Engine can be used on Bing and others as well, once you master all the techniques.

Remember not to put any quotation mark on the phrase, because most searchers do not use it when they type in their question inside search engine. Also, with this method you can reveal the true competition that are related to your content.

Step 2: Copy URL of those SERP appearing on Google 1st , 2nd and 3rd page

Most searchers will look at those SERP appearing on the 1st page, and they are some even will cover till 3rd page; with some extreme will scan through all the pages till the last. But mostly they read the content of those URL listed on front page.

Google search engine has become smarter day-after-day, and they will show you the relevant result and content to your question. There are ton of SEO specialist on the internet who will teach you how to get rank on Google. You can learn a lot from those writers appearing on the first 3 pages.

Step 3: Paste them into an Excel sheet and sort SERP by the ranking

Paste those URL you copied appearing on 1st, 2nd and 3rd page onto an Excel sheet and rank them according to their position appearing on the SERP. It is important for you to have a framework to work on and track your progress and result. Excel sheet has been widely used by company to monitor performance and report the result subsequently. It is a tool you can use in your ranking exercise.

In the Excel sheet, you can create various column with “SERP”, “Rank”, “Read”, “Implemented”, “Improved” to keep track of your action and progress. This is the method I used to keep myself on track to achieve higher ranking result on Google.

Step 4: Start reading and analyse all contents written by SEO writers

When I entered the title of this post, my post not even appear in all the 27 pages of the SERP on November 20th, 2017  because I have yet to implement those guidelines given by those SEO experts. The first post appear with featured snippet is Neil Patel “The Step-by-Step Guide to Improving Your Google Rankings Without Getting Penalised“.

Neil Patel Featured Snippet Posting

This position is name as Position 0 in the industry and is picked by Google to be highly relevant to the search phase, especially those DIY “How to” topic. It may attract searcher attention and encourage them to click your post, better than the Position 1 ranking number 1 on SERP.

Neil Patel is the expert in SEO ranking therefore I have no issue for him to rank on this 1st row of the SERP. He is indeed a genius in this highly competitive niche market. I learned a lot from this blog post. The steps that he highlighted here are relevant for you to take note of, when you want to get to Page 1.

Update on September 5, 2018 on Neil Patel’s post ranking

When I google the same phrase “how to get on page 1 on google”, Neil Patel’s post not anymore ranking on 1st page. However my article of this post appear on 1st Page, right at the bottom (wow… I have made it to 1st Page of Google).

Knowing something but without any action is not going to work, especially in SEO industry. After reading those articles, you need to take action and put efforts on your content. As I said in earlier step, Neil Patel article has many useful tips for us to follow and implement. you need to analyse it and do those actions you deem relevant to your post and do those action which you have not done on your content.

Here are some of the suggestions by SEO experts:

SEO of Meta Title

Meta Title is very important for the searcher to identify what kind of content on your page. Google suggest that the characters length should not be more than 60. More than that, it will be cut off by Google during the SERP.

You can edit the Meta Title in your All-In-One SEO or Yoast SEO Plugins when you are using the WordPress Content Management System.

Try not to use words like “a”, “the”, “but”, “thus”, “if”, “an” in your Meta Title. These words will not help you. You can consider adding prefix (before) or suffix (after) to your title like words “buy”, “review”, “purchase”, “discount”, “coupon”, “deal”, “shipping”, “order”. Words like these may attract the eyeballs of the searcher to click on your post.

SEO OF Meta Description

The Meta Description appears right below the Meta Title during the SERP when searcher found your page. Google recommend to keep the length less than 160 and you can edit your Meta Description in the All-in-One or Yoast SEO Plugins.

Some SEO specialists prefer to customize the Meta Description themselves, rather than leave it to Google for its own insertion. The Meta Description is not one of the ranking factors by Google, but certainly it may attract the searchers attention and motivate them to click on the SERP.

SEO OF Link Building

In order to get rank well, you need to put external links and internal links within your page. These are essential elements Google look for when Google decide which page to put forward to the searchers when they put in their keywords.

If you prefer to learn online, about How To Get Ranked number 1 Of Google, you may consider to explore Wealthy Affiliate Online Course. On this online platform, you will be able to access various kind of modules to learn all about SEO.

How Social Media Posting Work

Once you created your content as a page or post, remember to post your content on your social media sites. This action will lead you to get found by the search engines faster.

SEO of Google Tools

Google has useful tools which you can utilize to make your site page rank higher. The Google Search Console (used to be Google Webmaster Tools) and Google Analytics are free tools provided by Google for all of us to use. Feel free to check them out and learn to use them effectively. Another important tool – Google Keyword Planner, is very useful for you to identify right keywords to use on your page.

After you have created your content, it is advisable to do a Fetch as Google in the Search Console. This action will lead to faster index of your page/post and allow the search engine to find you in soonest time.

Step 6: Check Google ranking result, re-tune your content and improve further

With all the earlier 5 steps you have performed, the exciting part you wish to know is your ranking performance. This is the step you want to do now. Put in the phrase you wish to rank in Google search engine, see the ranking result. I hope the steps outline here will make your ranking improve one step, and you need to continue to climb further.

The Google SEO Ranking Factors

The Google SEO Ranking Factors

How many times you have heard about the importance of SEO to increase traffic to your website and The Google SEO Ranking Factors you need to be aware of? And you wonder which one to follow and learn from?

Worry not. I would suggest you find one or two, the most three factors which you can start with and work on it few months to see the result. After getting success, then move on to the other factors which you think will give you further boost in your traffic. By doing one-step at a time, you learn by doing.

Google SEO ranking factors

Here are those SEO Ranking Factors you need to understand:

  • Keyword in the  Title Page
  • Keyword in the Link Anchor Text
  • Fast Page Loading Speed
  • No Plagiarism
  • Mobile Friendly
  • Don’t Use Stop Word
  • Social Media Marketing


Keywords in the <title> page

This is one of the internal ranking factors which you can control directly. When you do it right, your ranking in the SERP will become much better. Your page title should reflect what is being written in your content, just like the title I have chosen for this article.

The title need to be relevant to your page copy and the words found in the <title> tag must also be found in the page itself.

Use Keyword Tool in Wealthy Affiliate to search for keywords that have high searches and less QSR competition.

Keywords in the Link Anchor Text

Use relevance keywords in your link anchor text to get higher ranking. Google will find your site more easily and it is an effective way to get more inbound links. You may use different variations of anchor text to get more  hits from different combinations of keywords.

Create Link Anchor Text for your visitors, not for the search engines. Therefore, do it naturally and let the readers feel comfortable reading your contents.

Page Loading Speed

Page speed is crucial to your SEO and you can make use of Google developer’s tool to check your score. Following the suggestion to fix the problems once you have completed the Page Speed test.

If your Mobile or Desktop speed is poor, mostly Google will ask you to eliminate the render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content.


Google will penalize you if your content is similar to other people’s content. Therefore, it is important for you to ensure that your content is not being stolen or others do not have the same content as yours. One of the tools which I found very useful is Copyscape. It is an online plagiarism detection platform to help you look for content theft or similar content on the internet.

Copyscape is free to use only once a month, and you can sign-up for the Pro-version when you decide to use it for more times.

Make Your Website Mobile Friendly

As more and more people using their mobile phone to access internet for information, Google would like to tap on this opportunity and make the user feel at ease. Google love to make the user happy and therefore if your site has slow loading speed, or not friendly to the mobile user Google will not want to show up on their search engine result page.

You can check whether your website is mobile friendly by putting your URL at Google’s Mobile Friendliness Tool.

Social Media Marketing

With the arrival of Facebook, more social media platforms are being introduced each year. We now have many others to use, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, WhatsApp,YouTube, Snapchat, Pinterest, etc.

Each has its own loyal users and fan group, with some of them having large followers. These are useful platforms which you can use reaching out to potential buyers of your products/services.

Don’t Use Stop Word

Recently I came across some articles, telling me not to use stop words in our Meta Title; Meta Keyword; Links; Header Tags. You may wonder what are “Stop Words”?

Here are some of the common stop words you may want to avoid using: And, A, The, In, On, Of, Be, I, Me. Does this strategy work? No harm do your A/B testing on your site and see the outcome.


It is good to check your ranking result after all the improvement implemented on your site. I usually will google my post title and see whether my post appearing on SERP Page 1 or 2, if not I will review, research and make improvement.

To make money online, your post or page need to be on 1st page or at least 2nd page. Not many people will browse their search results after the first 2 pages. Therefore, if you are not able to rank your content on these 2 pages, you are unlikely to make money online because no one will ever see your content.

It is important that you learn how to check your ranking on Google, and find ways to rank higher on it.

You will notice that most of the successful Online Marketers have their content rank very well on the internet. When you google those contents relevant to their niche, you will find that their post/page is on page 1. That gives them the competitive advantage over others, because more people will read their content and click on their recommended products/services.

How to get more readers to my blog?

How to get more readers to my blog when I have contents but no one come to read it?  What should I do? These are the questions you would like to find an answer for it.

  1. Perform SEO audit

Performing SEO Audit

You may need to do a SEO Audit of your website. I found an article written on Search Engine Journal “How To Perform an In-Depth Technical SEO Audit” very relevant to this topic. Have a read and pick up the important pointers from the article.

Some of the tools you may want to explore further are:

It is okay. I will guide you the way as I have learned from the internet. One effectively way is to build relationship with successful and important people in your chosen field. They would like a lot of followers in reading their contents and you can build on their networks.

To reach out more readers, you must focus on engagement and build real, mutually beneficial relationship with them. Only then, the readers will come and read your content. You can also learn from expert Michael Stelzner of his Advanced Blogging techniques – How to Make Your Blog Serve Your Business Needs.

Improve Your Website Design To Get More Readers

When your website design is not effective and easy for the readers, they tend not to continue reading your articles and may leave your site within few seconds. I have came a cross an article by Andy Crestodina from Orbit Media. He teaches us the 27 tips to design your website that works.

Here, I extract few pointers which you can refer and when you have more times, go through the article and have a full review.

1.  Use descriptive, key phrase and focused headline

Reader will decide whether to continue reading, by looking at your headline. If it is relevant to their needs, they tend to continue their read further down your article. The headline need to be descriptive and tell the readers what is it about your article.

There are various articles on Copyblogger which teach you how to write magnetic headlines. You may have a read inside and pick up good tips from those articles.

Popular marketing company MOZ also has good tip to guide you in writing irresistibly worthy headlines you can apply. I found it useful and would like to share it with you here.

2. Use People Pictures

I like the phrase “from the time we were born, we gaze at faces more than anything else”. This is so truly that we human like to see faces of other people and this is one reason Facebook is so popular.

Use real people photos instead of stock photos. Real people pictures are more genuine and build stronger trust.

3. Use Arrows As Visual Cues

A simple arrow can be very powerful in getting your visitor to look at the element on your page. By pointing it with an arrow, your reader is likely to notice it and read about it.

Answer Those Questions Your Searcher Asking

One of the ways to get content idea is, answer those questions your searcher is asking. When searcher come to the internet and go to Google search engine, they are looking for an answer to their question. If you can provide the useful and right answer to them, you win them over.

In order to provide the answers to those questions, you need to identify what are those questions searchers likely to ask on the internet. One useful resource you can turn to, is at Answer The Public. You will get many ideas when you check this website.

Catch Visitors Attention

There are  3 basic ways for you to get attention from your website visitors:

  • educate them
  • entertain your online audience
  • inspire those who visit your article


Importance of content creation at your site

Today I saw my site health turn to red, alerting me time to create new content on my to get more traffic to my website. It has been mentioning many times that we need to have fresh content creating at our website. Google search engine is always on the look up for new content in the internet world.

Without content or new article, google will not visit your website often and your website will tend to disappear when people searching for the related topic. Website with fresh content and ever green site will attract google to come.

So, what we need to do? 

Make it a habit to create new content each week. With practise, the ease of creating content become much easier and skill of doing it will also improved. And the habit of doing the thing you do each day, will remind you to do it each day. It become automatic process that you will do each day, without you knowing that you have created the content on your site.

Habit, habit, I love you 

Sing along the phrase above and you feel more relax and motivated to live another day, to pursue your dream which you longing to have with you, for the rest of your life.

Do what you love to do each day, and with each doing your love become much deeper and your love will flourish everywhere in your life, in each and everyone you encounter daily.

Live each day with Love

When you fill your mind with love, you feel your heart with passion and you will tend to offer help to others. Love, is the most important element in our dealing with others. When you have love, you forgot about the shortcoming, and have a passion heart to serve others.

Show your love to others now, do it now and stick with it forever, and never stop.

It is time for me to speed up my online business, since I am jobless now. My company has decided to close down the office and all the employees will be laid off. Although I have started creating my online business 2 years ago, I did not go full swing as my work takes up most of my times even after work. It is pressing urgent now since I am jobless without income.

Just Do It

Nike slogan is very effective in helping us do our work. Without thinking and worrying too much, what we need to do is, just do it. By doing small thing one at a time and do it consistently, I believe we will be able to realize our goal and dream. Today I went for a run and I set my goal to run for 15km, although I feel tired at times during the run but I persistent and continue my run. Eventually I achieve my goal of running 15km, and I feel so excited and rewarding when I acheive my target.

Focus On Today And Now

One thing I learned today from Dale Carnegie book – How to stop worrying and start living, is the advice from Sir William Osler – who has organized the world-famous Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. When he was a young medical student, one day in the spring of 1871 he read words from Thomas Carlyle that helped him lead a life free from worry: “Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.”

Think about just today and do your ulmost best for the day. Do not worry about the past and the future. Just focus on today and now, the present. Do what lies ahead of you at hand, and do what you can see now. Past is past and future is uncertain, therefore stop worry about all these and put your effort on now, the present time that is with you.

Why practice Search Engine Optimization? – I tell you the reason!

Search Engine Optimization, or SEO in short, is gaining popular in this internet world. If you have a website and you want people to find your website, knowing Search Engine Optimization will help you to reach your target audience. SEO help the search engine to rank your site and improve the click for SERP (Search Engine Result Page). Search Engine Optimization also aide in the user experience (UX) allowing them to navigate your website at ease.

For businessman who want to build a website, learning about SEO will help them a lot in reaching out to much more potential customers and lead to more revenue for them. The web has moved from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 and even to Web 3.0 now and newer and advanced technologies are being used to increase the visibility of business website. Social media like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google Plus, Youtube, etc are gradually being used widely by marketers.

Copywriters are required to know about SEO too. They cannot just write good, organic web copy without knowing the SEO principles. For marketers, they too need to master the SEO principles so they can plan their online marketing strategies and campaigns to target the right audiences.

Organic Content Strategy

SEO plays heavily on the Organic content strategy! By creating original, genuine and true content in the business website, searchers will come to your site more frequently. In order to reach out to the web user, we need to know the value of SEO and execute it according to the right strategies.

Google is still king

As of today, Google keeps innovate and continue to keep relevant to the searchers. At present, Google has 67% and Bing has 29% of the search engine usage. This makes Google remain at the top of search engine industry. Many of the big search engine companies like Netscape, Lycos and Alta Vista have went missing. Google has killed them.

Collapse of Brick-and-mortar business

With competition and reduced costs of the E-Commerce websites, many of the brick-and-mortar business collapsed. E-commerce spending has reached US$186 billion a year in 2014 and is expected to increase further. The growth of internet for work and leisure has expanded in every country. Consumer prefer the comfort of online purchasing, with the improved security and credit card transactions. Online research is also very convenient and easy to use.

Keyword Research

In order to get more traffic to your website and have more online presence, finding the right keywords to use on your website is very important. By using the keywords that people use when they perform their google search allow your website to be shown up to them. Once your website appear, you have all the means to present your content to them, and that allow you to show them your products or services.

One of best keyword research tools I found is the Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool. It provides all the necessary tool you need to identify the right keywords to use at your website and drive more traffic to your online presence.
