Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 2 Yahoo Answers About Us: Dennis Becker began his Internet marketing career in 1998 by selling on eBay while still running a full time retail business. Beginning in 2002, he became interested in Internet marketing, and spent 3 years trying virtually everything with dismal results. One day, frustrated and beat, but unwilling to quit, he devised a new strategy to simplify the entire process, starting with a mindset makeover. That strategy changed his life, and he wrote about it in the classic “5 Bucks a Day” book, available at Amazon, or through a link in the resources section. He also opened an “Insiders Club” in 2007 to help more experienced Internet marketers achieve their first $1000/day of profits by following proven, sometimes little-appreciated, business models to receive amazing results. Rachel Rofe has been a full time Internet Marketer since June 2006, and has been on the Internet for over a decade. Although she's dabbled in many fields, she's mostly known as a membership site expert, copywriter to the "Internet Stars", and offline business expert. She dedicates her time to learning as much as possible, both in Internet Marketing and in life. She joined the staff of Earn1KaDay in 2010. You can read more about her on her blog at http://www.RachelRofe.com. Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 3 Yahoo Answers Introduction When you type a question into your search engine, likely a thread from Yahoo Answers will appear pretty close to the top. Much like YouTube, Yahoo Answers has become quite a phenomenon in the online social interaction world. This question-and-answer site is largely one of the most successful communities online, boasting over 70 million users. So, why not jump onboard and join in the fun? Below I am going to teach how to become a Yahoo Answers authority, and help drive traffic to your online business. This free site offers a chance for anyone to ask or answer a question. The discussion vary from serious, like “how do I know if I have the flu”, to not so serious, like “does my dog like me?” Whatever the question, there is always someone looming around the corner waiting to answer. When it comes to discussing your niche, that someone should be you. Become an Industry Expert You’ve worked hard to know your niche inside and out. After spending countless hours researching, writing, and honing your skills, you really begin to feel like you should make better use of your knowledge. With all that information itching to get out of your brain, becoming an industry expert on Yahoo Answers is only the next natural step. If you sift through the forums of this community, you will find a vast array of answers for questions. Some of them are spot on, and others come out of left field. If you notice, those who provide the most accurate and trustworthy answers often receive a great deal of respect in the Yahoo community. Building a solid reputation in the forums will help to showcase you as a leading expert in the community. Having a community of people who trust you will also build confidence in your business practices. If you are always reliable when answering questions, then you will likely be seen as reliable when conducting business transactions. When you create a Yahoo Answers account, you are able to perform a Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 4 Yahoo Answers specific search related to your niche. Once you start finding questions regarding your areas of expertise, you can begin answering right away. Always answer will 100% confidence. If you aren’t sure of an answer, you are best to avoid providing feedback until you know for certain. Again, it is all about building trust with your community. Drive Traffic to Your Site Okay, so now that you have a Yahoo Answers account, you want to make good use of it. Being an authority in your field is always a plus, but spending a few hours a week in the community needs to have some sort of benefit for your business. That is when your links comes into play. Have links to your website or blog in your profile as well as in your answers. Just remember that direct advertising is frowned upon and could have you banned from the site. Cautiously approach how you are going to link your website or blog in your answers. Usually the best way to do this is have a page link directly related to the question topic. For instance, if you are a gardener who has a website to promote your nursery, then link to pages in your site that provide supplemental advice for your answer. If you are a gardener and answer a question about buying a new television, linking to your gardening site is not such a hot idea. So, stick with your industry and find ways to supplement your answers with information on your site. Get to Know Your Target Market Hopefully with all of this exploration and answering in the Yahoo community, you have taken some time to get to know your target audience. You can really learn what people are looking for in a product or service through this site. A pet store supply owner can go into the Pets category and find out the latest trend in pooch pampering. A daycare owner can explore the Pregnancy and Parenting section to research what parents are expecting from childcare. There is no better direct market research than Yahoo Answers. It’s free, and Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 5 Yahoo Answers you find out exactly what people want from their mouths. Talk to thousands of people in the community and you will soon realize how to improve your business. Search Engine Exposure As I mentioned earlier, any question you type in the search engine will likely lead you to a question asked at Yahoo Answers. You couldn’t ask for better exposure. Think about all of the time you spent perfecting your SEO campaign, only to have it succeed in Google, but flop in Yahoo or MSN. Answering questions in Yahoo is a no-fail system. You don’t have to use a certain search engine to rank high in results. Regardless if a users browses with Google, Yahoo, or Bing, your question will come up high in the ranks if it is typed into the search engine. So, every time someone clicks on your answer, they are also brought to the link for your website. Think of it is an indirect way to drive traffic to your website. Network with Other Experts Just like any social interaction site, you never know who you are going to run into online. Answering questions accurately and authoritatively may provide you possible business leads. You have the chance to interact with other experts in your field, allowing you to bounce ideas off each other and learn new aspects of your business. Yahoo Answer also allows emailing between members. This opens up the possibility for new clients, joint venture prospects, and sponsors to get in touch with you. Reading all of the questions and answers may also inspire you to try news things in your business. It opens up avenues of your industry that you may have never thought of in the past. So, go ahead and start answering. In no time, you will be touted as an industry expert, and find new opportunities to explore.
