Types of Harley Davidson Boots

Whether a bike maniac or not, everyone wants a pair of Harley boots. And they have every reason to do so! Do you know what it feels like to strut down the streets or perhaps click heels on the dance floor in a discotheque or even amble around the pool table while every one’s eyes are riveted to your footwear?

Just imagine: the unique black leather design coupled with the famous name Harley is sure a scorching combo! Wherever you go in your Harley boots, you will surely be able to kick up a storm in the fashion world.

There are many types of Harley Davidson boots, and each of them is an eye-catching fashion vista! They will enable you to lead with your fashionable trend-setting styles, and more so, get more girls hooked on to you than before!

The different types of Harley Davidson boots are extremely comfortable to wear, and they are long-lasting too. They have the proper waterproofing shield, and the leather is genuine and of the top notch that you can ever get in the market.

o There are various types of Harley Davidson boots that can offer you a unique, personal look. How about a lace-up boot style or perhaps the plain old zipper? Will one brake belt be enough for you, or do you need two? Or, you can set the desert blazing with the heat of your sex appeal as you walk around in your cowboy boots.

o The Faded Glory boot is a misnomer, you would say, since with its laces and straps, it has nudged itself in a comfy spot in the leather world. It comes in both men’s and women’s sizes and with high durability and comfort as well. Medallions and buckles are used for the decoration.

o The Hustin Boots are meant to protect your feet, and are not merely sported for their killing looks. They are made of powerfully resistant leather that can last for a long time.

o Ladies, if you think that the whirling dust and dirt of the streets make you look ugly, do not worry. Don a pair of Khyber or the Desiree with the tough stiletto heels to make you look sexier than ever in the heat!

o Gentlemen, if you want to trade the conventional outlook for something funkier and crazier, go for the ankle-high Drive. They are not of the usual calf or knee length. They can also come with a collar that enhances the comfort. This makes them the perfect choice for making long trips.

For better support of the arch and rubber sole, you can go for the Dipstick. You may choose from any of these options that have been given to you, but remember, the style factor is the most important thing to take care of. You might prefer wearing a killing pair of boots which takes its style too seriously. It might be killing in its looks but it can also cut off blood supply in your feet and almost kill you with the pain!

Harley boots are the best option for you then, because not only they try to brush up your sex appeal, but they also try and protect your feet! Take care of these boots properly, so that they can take better care of you too.

9 Branding Traps We Get Caught In

In 1954, a unique being came into this world and the branding began. The baby was a girl, the first child of first-generation Canadians, granddaughter of refugees. Her Mennonite parents spoke German and ran a fruit farm. The nurses put a pretty pink bow in her fiery red hair and delivered her back to her mom. Five siblings would follow and she would grow up to become a nurse like her mom.

Although I’m still a red-headed female, the attributes that labeled me then are very different from the brand I’ve become.

Branding is essentially a marketing term used to categorize us and convey a specific message. It’s not who we are. It’s the perception of who we are and like beauty, it’s in the eyes of the beholder. As a child, my dad told me Del Monte meant “kill the farmer.” Obviously he was feeling squeezed by a giant food producer and that has stuck with me to this day.

It’s the tangible way we reflect personal philosophies and personalities. It reflects our values, perspectives and interests. Not only do we run impressions of people and things through our own filter and assign them a brand, we also label ourselves based on those that have been assigned to us. We immediately form opinions of the motorcycle – and its rider – based on whether it’s a BMW, Yamaha, Honda, Harley-Davidson or Ducati.

Just like preconceived notions can lead us to misjudge the appropriateness of a motorcycle, so too can we misjudge others. These elements on which a motorcycle brand is created, can become judgment traps.

  1. Size. While there is a correlation between engine displacement (cc’s) and power output, it’s not a given. Likewise, we can’t determine a person’s capabilities or personalities by their physical size and shape.
  2. Color. We joke about whether a black bike is faster/nimbler/prettier/more powerful than a blue bike. In reality, color makes no difference. Just like age, skin or hair color make no difference to who we are as beings.
  3. Functionality, features. There are all kinds of options that can be purchased over and above the standard bike but unless they enhance safety, that they’re available doesn’t mean we need them. Likewise, we often make our lives overly complex, just because advertising has convinced us we need something.
  4. Accessories. There are lots of gizmos and gadgets we accumulate and granted, they can add convenience, but they don’t speak to the capabilities of the machine. Similarly, choices we make can camouflage our brand.
  5. Country of origin. Just because you’ve had an unfavorable experience with a Japanese/British/German bike does not mean that all things Japanese/British/German are bad. Nor does a person’s heritage necessarily reflect who that unique individual is.
  6. Stature. Differences in seat height, center of gravity and suspension can make an 800 pound cruiser easier to handle at slow speeds than a 500 pound dual sport bike. Individuals vary too. Don’t form an opinion based on first impression without knowing all the facts. You’ll likely be wrong.
  7. Heritage. Even a new motorcycle has a legacy, depending on experiences with others in its brand. The family, culture and society into which I arrived on this earth were instrumental in shaping the thoughts, attitudes and beliefs that guided my early behavior. Traditions, role models, religion, fairy tales and myths all passed down from one generation to the next, set the expectations based on cultural norms,
  8. Stock issue. This is what our bike is – or who we are – before people start working on us. The setting we’re born into initially establishes our brand but as we become more self aware and evolve, we come to realize that often, the branding that’s been thrust upon us by others is not who we are. Like the ugly duckling, we sense we don’t fit and at some point strike out to find the tribe where we do belong.
  9. Reviews, opinions of others. People base motorcycle purchases on journalists reviews and experiences of others. It’s really good to do your research, but in the end, it’s important to realize that the opinions of others percolate through their filters, their thoughts and beliefs.

Our brand is one of our most valuable assets and we control it. It’s something we create to express who we are, not something we are pigeonholed into because of an arbitrary label.

Free Website Traffic Through Article Promotion

What is Article Promotion? Article promotion is a great way to attract quality traffic to your website. It consists on publishing articles that you have written on subjects tightly related to your website’s niche, and allowing the free distribution rights on these articles to anyone that may want to use them as content on their own site as long as they remain intact. These articles will be branded with a link back to your website.

Why does Article Promotion Work? Article promotion works great because the small amount of effort that it takes to write an article can have huge payoffs in the form of link popularity and qualified traffic. Visitors of the websites that pick up your articles will read through them, and if you have done a good job of getting their attention and interest, then they will follow the link to your site at the bottom of the article searching for more great information.

How To Start Your Own Article Promotion Campaign Starting an article promotion campaign is very straight forward. First of all you need to figure out what kind of people you want visiting your website (your market). Once you know who you want to attract it will become easier to see what kind of topics they will be more likely to read about. If you sell motorcycle helmets on your website, you might want to attract bikers; an article on “10 things your helmet must have” would be great! You can also write about related stuff like motorcycle history, biker culture, leather ware, etc…

So you know who you are writing to and you know what you are writing about. Take some time to get an outline together and jot down the points you want to touch on. This will help you stay organized and it will make your article easier to read. Make sure you keep your topic narrow so that you or your readers don’t get overwhelmed with the amount of information to cover.

Now that you have your outline in place it is time to write your article. Usually if you have made a well detailed outline, you should aim at writing one to two paragraphs for each line item. Remember to include an introduction that tells the reader what you are going to talk about, and a conclusion that restates the most important points in your article. Do not include any links to your website in the body of the article, this will work against you in the long run.

Cool! Your article is almost ready to roll. Now is the time to put the link back to your page in place. The reason why I told you not to link to your own page from your article is that most website owners don’t like to publish articles loaded with self promotion. If you include links to your own site in the body of your article it becomes a little bit of a sales letter in disguise, and this is not our goal. The bottom of the article should be used as an “About the Author” box. Write a little bit (around 250 characters) about yourself, but most importantly invite the reader to click to your website.

In order for this box to be effective you must keep your ego stroking to the minimum and use this text to call the reader to action. Give your readers a good reason to click to your website. The following examples will show you how your about boxes should look.

Bad Example – What Not To Do My name is John Doe, I have been riding motorcycles my whole entire life. I grew up in Mississippi but then I moved up north to New York. I started my website JohnDoesBikeHelmets.com because I thought I could make me some money. Visit my site today!

The Good: John Doe has a call to action: “Visit my site today!”.

The Bad: Although he has a call to action, he does not provide a valid reason to visit his site.

The Ugly: Nobody really cares about John Doe’s life, including biographical information is a waste of about box space. JohnDoesBikes.com is neither a hyperlink, nor a full URL. People looking for helmets are probably not looking for JohnDoesHelmets.

Better Example – Do This, You Might Get Some Traffic If you are looking for motorcycle helmets you must visit my website today at [http://www.JohnDoesBikeHelmets.com] Tired of looking for a helmet online, stop banging your head against the wall! Especially if you are not wearing one of JohnDoe’s Helmets!

The Good: Some personality comes through. Call to action. Live hyperlink and full URL.

The Bad: Although the URL is live now, it will still not serve a purpose because most likely people are not looking for JohnDoesBikeHelmets when they search for helmets on search engines.

The Ugly: There is no real reason why a reader should click on the link. No benefits have been pointed out.

Best Example –Do This If You Want To Get Loads Of Traffic From Your Articles! Hey! John Doe here. Looking for high quality, affordable, cool-looking helmets? You are in luck! My slick looking Motorcycle Helmets will not only save you tons of money, but will also save your life! Get 15% off your purchase with code: CoolHelmets

The Good: Lots of benefits, great incentive to click on link by adding a discount code, excellent linking technique by using anchor words people will actually be searching for on search engines.

The Bad: The search term “Motorcycle Helmets” can be very competitive and will probably not rank as high in search engines as a less competitive term such as “Custom Painted Motorcycle Helmets”

The Ugly: Some article directories don’t allow anchor text on about box links. If that is the case, just place a full live URL.

So far so good. You have a market, you know what your market wants to read about, you have written something to them and you gave them a reason to click into your website. Great job! Now we need to get your article published by many different websites so you get that constant flow of visitors into your site.

In order to let the world know about your articles the best thing you can do is to submit them to article directories. Article directories are websites loaded with free articles. Writers submit their articles and provide them with free content for them to distribute to other website owners who; on the other hand, visit article directories searching for free, easy content for their sites. They get free content, you get free publicity. It is a win-win situation!

Among the largest article directories that come to mind are:

EZineArticles.com, GoArticles.com, ArticleAlley.com, ArticleDashboard.com, ArticlesBase.com

I highly recommend that you register for free to each and everyone of the directories above, and that you submit every article you write to them. This should get you a fair amount of traffic. You can always find more article directories if you Google “article directory”.

Super-Charge your Article Promotion Campaign! The following tips will help you make the most of your article promotion efforts:

  • Write at least one article a month, one per week would be ideal.
  • Submit each article to at least five directories, ten is even better.
  • Use the keywords that you want to rank for in the title of your article.
  • Change your about box in every article directory, making sure to change the anchor text to keywords related to the main keyword you want to rank high on.
  • When it comes to titles, think outside the box. Catchy and long works better than short and dull.
