I’ve been piddling around with auto-content generators for WordPress, Joomla and others, but heck, this one does the trick.This program (BANS) is a virtual affiliate goldmine. I know, that sounds very “salesy” but it is true. I would say that it is the best Automatic Website Content Generator out there. I’ve used sites like CBMall and BANS in the past, but this application actually gives me total control of my affiliate links. Plus it is so friggin awesome because for every category keyword you give it, it creates a keyword-rich URL and actual pages for each, yes I said each, product. The product actually does what no other piece of software does: load the site, dynamically with products from eBay, ClickBank and Amazon (with more to come!) with any targeted niche that you want. The software is also flexible enough to add your own list of static pages as well. Plus, each product is tied to your affiliate link. So not only do you get a site generator, but you also get a nicely done content management system (CMS). Check out some screens from the administration section of the program: The beauty of this application is that it automatically updates itself. Once a product is added/changed on one of the many store sites (ebay, amazon, clickbank, linkshare), the site is updated automatically…including the newly rewritten keyword-rich URLS. Just stinkin awesome. StoreStacker can add thousands of pages of content to a site and tons of low-fruit, product-based keywords. I’ve been losing faith in internet marketing for quite sometime now, but now, this blasted program has roped me back in. And I couldn’t be more gracious! Check out StoreStacker.com and let me know what you think. If you have any questions about this or any other automatic website content generators, feel free to ask me.
Also, some folks say that it is probably not a good idea to over ping from your blog.
Inactive List of Ping Servers for Blogs
Today I am experimenting with the dictating a blog post, WordPress in particular, using the voice control of my android phone. To show how good the transcription is I will not make any changes to the blog post. I will only post what I actually was dictated and transcribe for me speaking to my phone. I’m quite impressed with the quality of the transcription of the Android device, space it does seem to be a little more accurate than the Apple iPhone.
It seems that social marketing is quickly replacing, or at best, supplementing traditional marketing approaches these days. I make use of quite a few social marketing angles, but realized I typically stick to 5 tools on a regular basis.
Before you even think that social marketing is the silver bullet in your marketing arsenal, you must first have something “sociable” (not the crackers, although they are yummy) to spread…like a virus, but in a good way. If you don’t then chances are that social marketing won’t work for you.
So here they are, my top 5 social marketing tools for almost every post I make to the blog:
1) Windows Live Writer- The absolute best blog posting application, surprisingly from Microsoft. This client allows me to not only post to WordPress blogs, but it will also ping to my super super list of ping servers. Windows live writer allows you to add/edit/adjust images (which will automatically ftp them the your server) and make use of a ton of third-party pluggins such as suggested images, embed media and other cool things.
2) Pingoat – One of my go-to sites to ping servers that I may have not added to my Windows Live Writer config. I kind of make it a habit of that when I post something to immediately go over to Pingoat and submit my site.
3) StumbleUpon – I actually use this site to “stumble upon” some cool websites. It is nice to build up a network of “friends” and let them know about your latest post. I’ve seen great results with StumbleUpon and they seem to be less “cliquey” than Digg.
4) Feedburner – A great site to manage your rss feeds and makes it easier for other to consume them. If you don’t think that rss feeds are important, then well, you can go ask Google why they thought it was important enough to incorporate Adsense with it.
5) Twitter – Some think of Twitter as just a place to talk about where you are hanging out, but realistically you have to think of it as a tool to announce socially what you are up to! Made a change to your website? Wanted to review a new product? Just a few things to think about for using Twitter as a social marketing tool.
Now, of course you may have a few more items (as do I) but I figured a top 5 post would look better than a top 6 or top 9 social marketing tools post. Seriously, these are the main tools that I use regularly.
Fathers day ideas for me would be to let me sleep in!
