Before I found Ana’s site, I focused solely on getting traffic from the search engines and social media, not only have I learned how to get even more traffic from those sources but Ana has opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to generating traffic.
Anything from syndicating my blog content all of the internet to getting massive amounts of traffic to my simple power-point presentations, this site is all about simple actionable steps you can take to get your content seen by as many people as possible.
I often find myself with pen and paper in hand reading Ana’s blog posts, taking notes then putting what I learned into action right away.

AmyPorterfield.com – Amy Porterfield
I think its safe to say that social media is here to stay and with that you need to know how to effectively market your business on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Instagram and all the other major social media outlets.
Internet marketing is all about being everywhere your potential customers are and who better to teach you how to do just that than Amy Porterfield.
Amy is a social media expert with well over 15 years experience, she has managed the social media for giants such as Harley Davidson and Anthony Robbins just to name a few.
On her blog you will learn some of the most effective methods for branding yourself on social media, how to grow a fan base and turn those fans into hungry buyers.
I first found this blog after purchasing Amy’s Facebook marketing course FBInfluence 2.0 which I believe she is no longer involved with.
Check out her blog and look around, I am willing to bet you will learn something you can use to grow your social media presence in a matter of minutes.
Search Engine Journal – anything and everything search engine optimization.
Whether you want to learn more about the latest trends for ranking in Google or you want to see what you can do to increase your social media presence, Search Engine Journal is your one stop shop.
