5 Techniques to Get 5 Stars: How to Get More (and Better) Online Reviews


Everywhere you go, you see reviews.

Whether it’s a physical or digital product, if it’s worth talking about (in good or bad ways), it has reviews.

Some of this feedback is simply comments on blogs and forums.

But mostly, reviews exist on large e-commerce sites where companies sell their products.

The most important thing about reviews is that people care about them.

About 30% of Internet users check out reviews on Amazon before buying a product. And that’s just Amazon.


Another 13% head to Google.

Before, people would ask their friends about products. But now, they rely on online reviews.

People trust reviews to inform them about their decisions, and reviews play a huge role in people’s purchasing decisions.   [click to continue…]

Do you want more traffic?

Hey, I'm Neil Patel. I’m determined to make a business in your city successful. My only question is, will it be yours?

Who Wants to Become Business Partners with Neil Patel?

Have you ever wondered how I’ve been able to build multiple successful businesses? KISSmetrics receives over a million visitors a month, and the business raised over 15 million dollars in funding.

Crazy Egg, although it isn’t talked about much these days, does well too. It’s actually larger than KISSmetrics from a financial standpoint… it generates more profit each year than KISSmetrics does in revenue. And Hellobar, which is owned by Crazy Egg, is growing at a rapid pace. The bar is seen millions of times each and every day. 

And those are just the businesses people know me for. I have a handful of other businesses that do well too that no one hears about. For example, I’ve made millions of dollars in profit from real estate over the last few years…simply by buying distressed properties, fixing them, and then flipping them.

I’m not here to brag because the reality is I’m not that smart or even lucky. I’m where I am today because I’ve surrounded myself with people who are smarter than me. And I make sure I always take care of those people who do well for me…

In essence, my team members are like my family members. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am.

So what’s the purpose of today’s blog post? I am actually looking for more team members—family members—ones that I can work with for life.

Now, before you apply to any of these positions, make sure you read them all, and pick the one that’s the best fit for you.   [click to continue…]

A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating an Autoresponder That Subscribers Can’t Wait to Open


Email autoresponders are the holy grail of marketing.

You set up a sequence of emails once, and you’re done.

Thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands, of people will get exactly the same emails from you, in the same order.

This allows you to create an unbelievably consistent level of service.

Perhaps the most underrated benefit of autoresponders is that they exist within email marketing, the most profitable channel of marketing.

Capterra found that every one dollar spent on email marketing resulted in $44.25 of revenue. So, not only can autoresponders save you a lot of time, but they can also be extremely effective in driving profit for your business.

Of course, there are two sides to everything, and autoresponders are no exception: they have some limitations.

If you don’t understand these limitations and take appropriate action, you will end up with autoresponders that suck.

Remember that an autoresponder is just a tool. It’s how you use it that counts.

One marketer can achieve amazing long-term success with an autoresponder, while another will never make a sale.

I want you to be in that first group.

And if you follow the five steps in this post, you’ll be well on your way to efficient and effective communication with your email subscribers.   [click to continue…]

Social SEO Simplified: How to Optimize for the “Other” Search Engines


Do you want to compete with the best SEOs in the world?

It might be fun, but chances are you’ll either get crushed or have very slow success.

But that’s exactly what you’re doing when you try to rank for keywords on Google.

Sure, you can go after long-tail keywords to avoid the sharks, but you’ll still have some decent competition.

But what if you could go back in time when SEO wasn’t so evolved? You would be able to rapidly rank for terms and grow your organic traffic.

And although I can’t help you with time travel, I can help you find similar scenarios in the present that could deliver far better results than your current SEO strategy.

What am I talking about?

I’m talking about spending less time focusing on Google. Why? Because that’s where 99% of SEOs spend their time.

I’m talking about taking advantage of ranking for the “other” search engines—the ones on social media sites.

I’ve seen very few marketers and SEOs take full advantage of these opportunities, which means two things:

  • Less competition – it’s much easier to beat out amateurs and hobbyists who are accidentally ranking for terms than it is professional SEOs
  • Simpler rankings – since there aren’t a ton of people trying to manipulate search results, their algorithms don’t need to be as sophisticated as Google’s.

In this post, I’m going to show you how you can take advantage of these search engines.   [click to continue…]

What do these elite brands know about driving visitors and traffic to your site that you don’t?

A Step-by-Step Guide to Generating Clients by Writing Case Studies

You can use many methods to improve your conversion rate.

But very few can improve your conversion rate as much as case studies can.

Case studies have a few big benefits:

  • they resonate with prospects
  • they show that your product or service can work
  • the transparency increases the trust a reader has in you

All of these benefits are important, but the last one—in particular.   [click to continue…]
