Why Conglomerates are so Important if you want a successful business

conglomerateDon’t put all of your eggs in one basket

Whoever first came up with this expression was very wise, no doubt. He or she probably had some insight about running a successful business. This very old saying is the basic principle of Diversification and Conglomerate. Spread it out. Keep things separated. The advantage is, when one goes down, everything else stays afloat. But I have said several times before, get this out of your mind. Your business(ES) are not going down. Oh, they are going, but the only place they are going is UP – Strait to the TOP of the Search Engine Rankings.

122 Ways to Promote Content

Website traffic is very important. Otherwise, your content is useless.

Content is the lifeblood of your business. You must treat it like your most valuable commodity. That’s the only way you’ll get people to read it. Treat it so, and the website traffic will come pouring in.

If you’re like us, here at CharlesMoney.com, you spend most of your time:

  • Creating the best content you can possibly create,
  • Trying to grow your mailing list, and
  • Looking every day for new ways go grow your business.

Creating the best content is sometimes a challenge. But the real challenge is getting it out there for the people to see. Therefore, promoted content is the real lifeblood of your business, and website traffic is the result of this promoted content.

Promote your content, and your website will be a well oiled machine.

You must take the time to write good content. The time you spend creating it, however, should be a fraction of the time you will take to promote it, particularly if you want to increase website traffic, and you want your business to grow.

It’s important to, first, Create the Right Content, second, Promote the Right Content, and finally, see the website traffic rolling in. Do the first two things the right way, and the website traffic will continue to come in for a very long time.

Website Traffic

Why I’m writing this massive blog post about content and website traffic

For years, I guess you can say, I missed the boat. I was naive, thinking that all I had to do was create good content, and my website will take care of me.

This is not true. It’s never been true. People will tell you that it was not like this in the old days of SEO, but don’t believe it. Owning a website can be the closest thing to being alone on a desert island. You have something to share, with no one to share it with.

Website Traffic

I’m writing this because I want you to know that there are millions out there to share your content with. They are anxious to read your content, but they don’t know it unless you tell them.

Instead of writing about getting traffic to your website, posting on Social Media and all of the good things we all hear about over and over again, I want to write something that is important.

Everyone tells you that you have to have good content. Hardly anyone tells you how important it is to promote the good content you have. So, I’m going to take a completely different twist, and I hope upon hope that you get every ounce of benefit from this.

Let me put this another way. I hope you get more benefit from this than the pain I went through to create this for you.

Without further further ado, HERE IT IS.

Never become a victim of the “Credit Card Trap”

Credit-CardSome people learn the hard way to NEVER abuse the privileges of having a credit card. Do it once, and you’ll do it again and again.

The high interest rate charged by credit card companies will break you. To make matters worse, the IRS doesn’t allow you to deduct personal credit card interest. You’re paying interest with after tax dollars. With an interest rate of 18 percent interest, you can easily pay as high as 36 percent.

This doesn’t mean you should never have a credit card. Credit can be your best friend,, or, your worst enemy. Credit can make you a lot of money, or it can break you, depending on how you use it.

Having a Mortgage to reduce income taxes is just plain BS

mortgageA Mortgage on your home should be taken out for one reason only – If you don’t have the money to pay cash for your home.

As a practicing CPA for 30 years, many of my clients were very wealthy business people, who could afford to pay cash for a home. However, I advised them to take out a home mortgage. The mortgage interest is deductible, and a home mortgage is a major tax shelter.

Then, one day, it hit me right in the mouth. This is total B S.

Take out a Mortgage to save taxes, and you will lose

If you can afford to pay for your house, do it. Never take out a mortgage just to save taxes. If you do, you’ll get hit very hard. You might as well take money, burn it in the fireplace and watch the smoke rise from the chimney. Here’s why.
