The Best Service For Acquiring Natural SEO Links - OutreachPete

I have a high value website that ranks well on Google and gets a ton of organic traffic.

The crazy thing is, that website has done almost all of that on its own.

It's been around for a long time (decade +), but I had never paid attention to SEO and have never spent time any time or energy maximizing the website's SEO value. 

I just didn't have the time.

I also was deftly afraid of angering Google by going against their terms and artificially inflating my website with temporary "high value links." This website was and is way too valuable to mess with anything "black hat."

I decided to find out what I could actually do legitimately when I realized how much extra room there was to grow and get even more of the free "SEO" traffic everyone craves!

Getting SEO value

First, I tackled the "on-site" SEO, where I paid attention to site & page structure and optimized for best practices. Since I didn't have the time or the up-to-date expertise, I did...

My Favorite Tool For Automating Facebook Ads

Those of you who have experience with Facebook Ads know that it can be a pain to manage large amounts of campaigns, ad sets & ads.

(If you don't have experience, that's ok. This is valuable information to know as you grow on your journey, and something to keep in mind when you start having success and start realizing managing ads is not the best use of your precious time!)

You are likely familiar with the "rules" you can create on the Facebook Ads platform that are meant to help offload tedious work. But, you also know it can be difficult to know how to properly structure those rules to manage things effectively.

A ton of startups have popped up to help you understand the process of automating ads, but one stands above the rest in my experience & opinion.

If You're Not Using Sendy For Your Email Newsletters You're Wasting Money

 

Do you plan on having a simple email newsletter that you send daily, semi-daily or just relatively often? Or, do you plan to in the near future?

Are you using one of the many services like MailChimp, Constant Contact, Active Campaign or many of those similar competitors?

These services are pretty good and full-featured, but they are extremely expensive when you start to scale to any meaningful level.

 

There's a simple alternative to sending emails that works just as well.

It utilizes the power of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to send emails for a fraction of the cost you're paying (think 1/100th of the cost of MailChimp).

The product is Sendy, and I use it for a separate newsletter I send with about 6,000 daily recipients. 

 

To put the cost savings in perspective, MailChimp used to cost $200 to send emails daily to 10,000 people, at bare minimum. (They recently obfuscated their pricing so you can't...

Tools I Use That You Should Use Too

Here is a quick, simple list of some of the tools I recommend, and a simple description of what they're best used for. 

I've spent over $7,000,000 advertising online, and each and every one of these tools has helped me be more efficient in my marketing efforts.

I can't say any one tool is the absolute "best" product you'll ever use, because I don't have the time to be "perfect," but they've worked for me. Because of that, I can recommend them, and I know each of these can help anyone be more successful. 

This list won't be huge, because I only recommend things I actually use, but much more will be added soon...

Detailed reviews will be upcoming, along with pros and cons and why I've picked these vs. competitors, but for now, let's just cut to the chase:
