About Internet marketing with WordPress
Written by David Mercer, one of the world's most experienced technical writers, Internet marketing with WordPress provides not only the highest quality marketing and SEO information, it also comes with an online interactive learning environment, especially for its community of readers.
The Internet marketing interactive learning environment requires readers to register a free account on SME Pals, and is a place where people can take exercises aimed at expanding their knowledge and practical marketing abilities. There are also exciting and fun Internet marketing related challenges, as well as the chance to interact directly with the author, ask questions and generally learn at an accelerated pace.
Here's a snippet taken from the start of the Google+ challenge in chapter 4 of the interactive learning environment on SME Pals.com:
Google+ is in the process of becoming an important social tool. Unlike other networks, Google+ wants to be more than a stream of bite sized bits and pieces of trivia. It wants to become a platform for discussion and a free exchange of ideas. Something more profound and valuable than its competitors.
Whether it succeeds in becoming the world's platform for debate and knowledge dissemination remains to be seen. From our point of view, the fact that Google+, as a social medium, wants to provide greater depth of knowledge in its content means that there is more scope for us to learn and exchange ideas with leaders in our fields, and influence how others think.
Google+ challenge preparation
- If you don't already have a Google account, create one at Google.
- Fill out your Google+ profile (Hint: Click the circular link in the grey menu bar along the top of your Google+ account page)
- Find out what a circle is, and add your family and friends to your Family and Friends circles.
- Next find people in your niche that you would be interested in following and add them to a circle (Remember your can create as many circles as you like to organize your connections).
- If you like, follow me on Google+ and I'll follow you back.
- If you have a webcam, set up a hangout with other people.
- Create a Google+ page for your blog's business, product or brand
Once you have a stream of interesting content from people you have chosen to follow, you can begin commenting on it and contributing to the discussion. People you are following who see your comments can decide to follow you, adding your content stream to their own. In this way you can build up a large network of engaged followers.
By combining the practical knowledge gained from reading the book with the real-world Internet marketing experience gained from the quizzes, exercises and challenges on SME Pals, WordPress bloggers can be assured that they are getting the best possible training and information available.
