Amazing Simple Selling Machine Tells You How To Get Started Selling

 

This Amazing Simple Selling Machine starts off by listing 7 Steps to Simple Selling.

Before we get into that, I have a question.

Are You still afraid of selling?

Still carrying a Big Black Road Block on your shoulders?

Convert that Heavy Weight into An Amazing Simple Selling Machine

Convert that Heavy Weight into An Amazing Simple Selling Machine

Today could be your lucky day if you are still searching for an Amazing Simple Selling Machine that will do the job for you.

I found this itty bitty program being peddled as:

Selling Secrets, Stolen From John Thornhill’s High Ticket Mentoring Progam.

Now how did he (Mr. X) get away with doing that?

Well, it seems Mr. X works for John Thornhill in addition to running his own online business.

Did a Webinar for John while John was away on vacation. When John got back he liked the Webinar so well, he suggested to Mr. X that he release it as a WSO.

Now how is that for having a good boss?

There was a wee Problem.

In spite of the fact that Mr. X is a great copy writer, even he ran into trouble when describing this Amazing Simple Selling Machine that is Simply Amazing!

1. This is NOT one of those Push Button, Shiny easy things that is being peddled everywhere.

2. If you are into marketing and selling, professional or beginner, this Amazing Simple Selling Machines is something you NEED.

Not something you want…which is a problem because people buy what they want, not what they need.

3. Do you have about 45 minutes to invest in finding out what you must do if you really want to turn yourself into a successful  Amazing Simple Selling Machine?

What you must do before beginning your journey as an Amazing Simple Selling Machine.

There is a list of only 7 Simple Selling Machine Things that you need to get under your belt before you go crashing your way through that big Wilderness of Internet and even Affiliate Marketing.

For some background.
I’m feverishly working right now on creating a product to sell or give away.

Guess what?

I have this program on my hard drive and decided to watch the video and read the pdf again just as a refresher.

One thing for sure, any kind of selling or product creating isn’t just dressing your information up in a pretty package and rolling it out.

No, there are some basic and ethical ribbons that tie that package together for you and the lucky person who happens to get their hands on what you create or sell.

Here is one simple selling clue that must be remembered:

When you are told to create a product (as I have been in lesson 1 of the coaching program I am trying to navigate) they always start off with find your “Niche”…

Which is fine.

Unfortunately, I have this bad reaction to being TOLD to do anything.

And I’m being told that I MUST create a product…all my own original knowledge…with a timer hanging over my head.

Something inside of me just scrunches then explodes and goes off like a bomb. 

Takes a bit to get over it, and start doing what I’ve been Told to Do.

Next on the list is always being reminded that you must choose something you are interested in or know something about.

This Amazing Simple Selling Machine does something completely different.  (Actually it isn’t called Amazing Simple Selling Machine… just something I dreamed up.)

Topic #1. of the 7 Selling Tips (Lists of what you need to know, I think) is labeled with:

Knowledge as one of the two-word Tip description.

Liz Tomey Coaches How To Use PLR to Make Money

Liz Tomey has been using PLR since 2004 to make a gracious living! 

As part of her PLR love affair, 

she has always shared her expertise and information with students. 

I recently went through most of the training of her SixFigure PLR Academy… and it is Work!.

Live webinars everyday, with home work….

But when you get through, most of the other students in the class had a product created, and selling it.

And in our closed group, people help each other, for real.

Want to get acquainted?  Think she is back on her Facebook Daily Live…where you sometimes get to listen to the crickets when she is running late and sits out on the screened in back porch.

That Screen might be ok for the bugs, but saw a video recently where a Alligator decided to take a swim in a screened in Pool…..not far from where she lives!
Here is some info in a video about the SixFigure Plr Academy…you might like it!

Liz Explains what she will be teaching at SixFigure PLR Academy.

Went through my old computer just looking and ran across this.

MyMakeMoneyOnlineCoach.com  from 2012, Think it was a combination of Liz Tomey and Jeff Dedrick.

Was a great membership site with live training webinars each week.

Since I was busy at the time with other things, didn’t pay attention and do what she told us all to do.  Put the url in the address bar and all that is left is Profits theme, but if you click on the files in the footer will take you right over to her blog…

This SixFigure PLR Academy is going to be a trip.

Don’t remember how long it runs, but if memory serves..live webinar every day with home work.
That is how you end up with a working PLR Product to sell…by 21 days.
Get the theory, get the knowledge, the resources and get it done.
Kick Butt coaching if I ever saw it.
Yep.

Security Isn’t Just For Computers

Security for People is More Important

Than Security for Computers!

I received the following Email from my friend Gene, all about security and staying safe in today’s world.

He requested I share…so   Thought about it for awhile…then decided to post it here.

I hope some of the suggestions will be of value and make you think about what you do.

“Note: One thing I would add to this dissertation is the

“BEWARE OF DOG”

sign decoy. Good idea to put one up on your fence or door even if you don’t have a dog.”

Read all the way to the end. You just might learn something that will save your home from being burglarized.

Below are some things that people planning to rob or burgle your home said they have done in the past…from interviews with some prison inmates.

I am particularly interested in the part about the Wasp Spray… see below!

1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.

2. Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.

3. Love those flowers. That tells me you have taste… and taste means there are nice things inside. Those yard toys your kids leave out always make me wonder what type of gaming system they have.

4. Yes, I really do look for newspapers piled up on the driveway. And I might leave a pizza flyer in your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it..

5. If it snows while you’re out of town, get a neighbor to create car and foot tracks into the house.. Virgin drifts in the driveway are a dead giveaway.

6. If decorative glass is part of your front entrance, don’t let your alarm company install the control pad where I can see if it’s set. That makes it too easy.

7. A good security company alarms the window over the sink. And the windows on the second floor, which often access the master bedroom – and your jewelry. It’s not a bad idea to put motion detectors up there too.

8. It’s raining, you’re fumbling with your umbrella, and you forget to lock your door – understandable. But understand this: I don’t take a day off because of bad weather.

9. I always knock first. If you answer, I’ll ask for directions somewhere or offer to clean your gutters. (Don’t take me up on it.)

10. Do you really think I won’t look in your sock drawer? I always check dresser drawers, the bedside table, and the medicine cabinet.

11. Here’s a helpful hint: I almost never go into kids’ rooms.

12. You’re right: I won’t have enough time to break into that safe where you keep your valuables. But if it’s not bolted down, I’ll take it with me.

13. A loud TV or radio can be a better deterrent than the best alarm system. If you’re reluctant to leave your TV on while you’re out of town, you can buy a $35 device that works on a timer and simulates the flickering glow of a real television. (Find it at http://www.faketv.com/)

Security isn't Just for Computers

Security isn’t Just for Computers

8 MORE THINGS A BURGLAR WON’T TELL YOU:

1. Sometimes, I carry a clipboard. Sometimes, I dress like a lawn guy and carry a rake. I do my best to never, ever look like a crook.

2. The two things I hate most: loud dogs and nosy neighbors.

3. I’ll break a window to get in, even if it makes a little noise. If your neighbor hears one loud sound, he’ll stop what he’s doing and wait to hear it again. If he doesn’t hear it again, he’ll just go back to what he was doing. It’s human nature.

4. I’m not complaining, but why would you pay all that money for a fancy alarm system and leave your house without setting it?

5. I love looking in your windows. I’m looking for signs that you’re home, and for flat screen TVs or gaming systems I’d like. I’ll drive or walk through your neighborhood at night, before you close the blinds, just to pick my targets.

6. Avoid announcing your vacation on your Facebook page. It’s easier than you think to look up your address. Parents: caution your kids about this. You see this every day.

7. To you, leaving that window open just a crack during the day is a way to let in a little fresh air. To me, it’s an invitation.

8. If you don’t answer when I knock, I try the door. Occasionally, I hit the jackpot and walk right in.

Sources: Convicted burglars in North Carolina , Oregon , California , and Kentucky ; security consultant Chris McGoey, who runs http://www.crimedoctor.com/ and Richard T. Wright, a criminology professor at the University of Missouri-St Louis, who interviewed 105 burglars for his book Burglars on the Job.

Protection for you and your home:

If you don’t have a gun, here’s a more humane way to wreck someone’s evil plans for you.

WASP SPRAY

A friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection.

She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead.

The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you.

The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote.

She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would.

She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection… Thought this was interesting and might be of use.

FROM ANOTHER SOURCE:

On the heels of a break-in and beating that left an elderly woman in Toledo dead, self-defense experts have a tip that could save your life.

Val Glinka teaches self-defense to students at Sylvania Southview High School .(https://www.facebook.com/SylvaniaSouthview/posts/1247850498558962)

For decades, he’s suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed.

Glinka says, “This is better than anything I can teach them.”

Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray.

The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so if someone tries to break into your home, Glinka says, “spray the culprit in the eyes”.

It’s a tip he’s given to students for decades. It’s also one he wants everyone to hear. If you’re looking for protection, Glinka says look to the spray.

“That’s going to give you a chance to call the police; maybe get out.”  Maybe even save a life.

CAR KEYS:

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr.’s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across.

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car.

The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator.

Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It’s a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation.

Test it.

It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain.

It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won’t stick around.

After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that.

And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot.

The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

P.S.

I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can’t reach a phone.

My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn’t hear him.

He can activate the car alarm and then she’ll know there’s a problem.”

Thanks Gene for thinking of me!

Marketing via Selling

Marketing via selling gives you a choice

of strategies to use.

Message not Seen, Selling doesn't happen

Message not Seen, Selling doesn’t happen

Rain and some more Rain…again today, so I am
spending some time inside..listening to Politics and reading emails!!!!  Selling isn’t what it is cracked up to be, so I’m doing research.  Maybe I’ll share. 

 

Chris Munch loves old stories…
here is one he used in an email I received this a.m.
 

“Getting Your Message Across Doesn’t Always Work”

“Getting Your Message Across”

 

“There was a terrible flood and a devout Christian was stuck on a roof avoiding the rising flood water.

A guy in a boat came along and said “Hop in. I’ll take you to dry land.”

The Christian said “No. Save someone else. I’ll be fine. God will

rescue me.”

Then another boat came along. Same thing…the Christian waves the boat off. “I’m okay. God’s going to rescue me. I have faith.”

A Helicopter…?

Finally a helicopter comes along but the crew can’t convince him

to get winched up to safety.

“Don’t worry about me,” he says. “God is going to save me.”

The waters keep rising and the man drowns.

When he gets to heaven he’s angry and complains to God

“I had faith that you’d save me and you let me drown.”

God says:

“I don’t know what you mean. I sent 2 boats and a helicopter!”

 

 
“Sometimes people See the Message, but just don’t get the Message.”
Hmmm..
Chris tied it into getting your email messages through.

 

But this applies to Selling in general
cause if you aren’t getting your message through
Might as well give it up as a lost cause.

 

How  Does Selling Really Work?

Have a Message
Cause  or request an Action
People Join up  or Buy (Conversions)
Earn some Income or collect likes or grow an email list!
A whole Big Plate of Yes!!!! 
On the other hand you can end up with this:
No Message
No Action
No Conversions
No Income
A whole Big Plate of No.
  • Regardless of the vehicle you use to deliver your sales message: 
  • Facebook Ads  
  • Blog posts on your WordPress  Domain 
  • Articles posted on your Blogspot blog,
  • Email messages
  • it brings us back to this simple fact: 

The message you are delivering has to connect and FAST.

Most  stats I have read seem to think that you have less than 2 seconds to hook the fish and start reeling it in.

In other words if your prospect looks and leaves, regardless of the source of your Message…you are in trouble. 

Holds true even for Videos. 

So what is a guy (or girl) to do?

Make a Meme or a Graphic to Tell a Story: How To

Learning how to Make a Meme Can be Easy or Hard!

Take a look at this meme.  Think you could make a meme and do it completely in about 10 or 15 minutes? 

I have always liked having a way to make a meme, but found it time consuming using some of the online sites that leave their logo when you do use them!

Make a Meme to Add Interest

Make a Meme to Add Interest

Make a Meme...Custom-thumbnails-how-to use

Make a Meme…Custom-thumbnails-how-to use

I happened on this program and couldn’t resist.  Great way to make video thumbnails for YouTube.

Right after I bought it there was a webinar I had to attend.

Still couldn’t resist, this easy make a meme or graphic program just kept calling, so I started listening to the webinar instead of watching and went and made this set of pictures.

Will show you the original, plus the one I created without watching the training or anything. This is what I started with…an example meme.
Fun!

Making Memes Images for WordPress

Making Memes Images for WordPress

Here goes, Look and Laugh, but it was Fun!

Started with the Bird above…then did this one!  The “All By Myself” needs some help…but it can be corrected! 

Changing the font style and size is a snap.  Easy as using Wp-Admin built in editor.

 

Make a Meme I thought I Could

Then I created at comparison meme.

Read this story about making a meme to tell a story.

You can read it here:   How to Do a Meme & Tell a Story

 

I have dappled a little in Photo Shop, use plain old Paint a lot, but this program is a much easier version of PS so it is simpler to use. 

Not as many options, but it does have text, backgrounds, upload images and layers.  Even has images that are  royalty free which makes your images legal. 

No worry about getting sued! 

Here is a link to another image I made for an article about building email lists. 

Take a look,  now this one is very colorful!  

It is titled “Build”  so check it out! 

Can you imagine, making your own banner ads from a template that you create and keep? 

Then when you want a banner or even a logo, sign in and zip if off in a second? 

Great thing to have, especially if you know what you want, you never have to wait, order or pay. 

Strictly DIY  (do it yourself) and fast! 

This is the first time I’ve used it to make pictures for an article on my site, but it seems to keep up, doesn’t take long to create, then I download to my hard drive as I like to keep images for each site in the site folder.  

Makes life easier. It is just as easy as the procedure to make a meme or an info-graphic using a template.

Hope you enjoyed. 

I did. 

Come over to  Internet Money Store on Facebook. 

Have some more examples there. 

Will appreciate any likes or comments or even shares you happen to leave behind!  

Thanks,

Content Curation is the New Affiliate Marketing Craze

Use of Curation has Sky Rocketed Content Curation into the New Affiliate Marketing Craze!

Fill up your niche sites with curated content, images and videos using a content curation system that works 24×7 finding relevant content for you to use… 

Many little sites just set up as a glorified sales page aren’t producing anymore…no earth shaking content, no branding and since the death of back link farms… nothing there to attract organic traffic.

Here are some cures being touted:

Content Curation = Blogging Overload Solved

Content Curation = Blogging Overload Solved

Marketing isn’t easy without some help. 

You can either go for outsourcing or doing it yourself, or sign up for a vendor who provides the services you need.  

There might be an alternative.  Read this.

 How Content Curation Works

How Content Curation Works

Here is a link to a Video that will explain even more about Content Curation...Learn More Here.

Keeping up to date on a blog, sometimes becomes a thankless task. 

Working hours on end, creating fresh original content  can become a drag. 

Many bloggers, affiliate marketers, and website owners become over loaded. 

Contrary to what you are often enticed to buy in the market place, there really isn’t a “push button” set it up onetime and leave town solution. 

Since you need a certain amount of content optimized for search engine traffic that you aren’t busting the budget paying for,  what is the solution? 

Content Curation may be the cure for the Pain!

Well, I bought this plugin and am trying it on a site I own. 

The future will tell if it really helps as much as it says. 

Since I’m not good with keywords, think I overdid my setup, so I’m going back and clean things up a bit and watch what happens. 

I’m certainly getting excerpts from compatible websites and blogs…Changed one of my setting so I can edit anything that comes in as long as I leave the setting for found information on “Draft”. 

The biggest snafu right now is clearing out the mess I made when I let it run with automatically post for several weeks and ended up with 403 pages of content.  Not good.  

Must get better at reading the setup instructions and following. 

Dumb of me because there are very easy to access tutorials that walk you through it.

Helpers are a helper if you use them correctly.  

Come back again in a week or so, or else sign up below your comment to get notified when I post again and get the update.

Comment below or Leave us a Like! 

I’d like to know if you have ever done something as dumb when working on your site!

Thanks for Visiting.

Review: The Ethical Way to Make Money

 
How to Market with Integrity in other words

           “the ethical way to make money!”

Hey,

Thanks for Stopping by. 

I couldn’t resist sharing this email I received a couple of days ago.  

From some guys that are really into using ethics while they are  Earning an income on the internet and are quite willing to share how they do it with anyone who is interested. 

From previous dealings with these guys, I know they can be trusted and what they sell is always above board.  (by the way, I have already bought this offer!)

Here is how the email started:

“If you’re struggling to make money online then you made a good choice to read this email.”

A little introduction and then let’s get to it…

First I want to introduce you to the “Real Guys”.

These guys have been known in the business for several years and have earned huge respect in our industry.

Meet the guys who know how to make Ethical Money

They are real “down to earth” all around good guys with a passion for helping others to grow their online businesses…

…and they get results for their students! That Me in the picture below is Eric Holmlund …

Ethical income on line money makers

Ethical income on line money makers

Eric Holmlund, Paul Counts, and Jeff Wellman are family men with good old fashioned values, and they are only interested in making money in ethical ways and with integrity.

If you’re interested in earning money online, I recommend that you do business in the same way.

After reading this post:

The first thing you should do is watch this video.

How can I Ethically Make Money Online, without spending money?

How can I Ethically Make Money Online, without spending money?

Are you interested in making money with integrity like these guys do?  If so, then typically you would need to do a lot of research. 

Finding the very few really solid niches that you should get involved with is hard work.

But today you can forget all the research and looking because they have created a video for you to watch that is a revelation. 

They are going to REVEAL one of the most solid and profitable niches on the entire Internet (and one they’ve already generated over $1 Million from using this product).

It’s profitable, it’s evergreen and most important, it can be marketed with integrity and it truly helps people.

Of course, you have to have a good solid product within this niche to be able to make money, and they have covered it for you as well!

Imagine being able to take their product, and begin selling it as your own online!

You’ll see just how this is going to be possible for you inside the following video…

Click Here to Watch the Video

But watch it now because inside the video there is a wealth of ideas and suggestions.


Even if you aren’t interested in buying…there are some really great ideas to copy and use.  

Put your own stamp on something you already have and get going.  

No Action, No Earnings.  You do have to do a little work to get paid….

Get out of that slump and get it going.  Enjoy and don’t miss out!

To your success,

What You Ought to Know About Email Marketing

It isn’t the Old Days. You Need to Do More.

Email Marketing With an Email List Has Changed.  Did You?

 

Hi,

Using Email Marketing to promoting products and services via email used to be easy about a decade or so ago, because email was still pretty new and people were excited to get mail.

 

Those were the first words I read in an email from my marketing friend who knows email marketing.  Then he said:

 

Now all that’s changed.

 

You need to be on top of the best email strategies in order to get readers to open, read and click on your links. 

 

Then he explained and offered three tips to use with email marketing.  Because there are just some things that you ought to know.

 

Here are three tips to boost your response rate…

 

1. Give People a Reason to Open Your Emails

Here’s a funny thing…

People sign up for newsletters and then they never read them.

Sure, they have good intentions, but when the newsletter hits their inboxes they see nothing compelling enough to make them click on the email and start reading it.

The solution?

You need to write juicy subject lines that virtually compel people to open your emails.

For example, here’s a boring subject line:

 

“Weight loss tips”

 

Here’s a better one:

 

“The #1 secret for getting rid of belly fat –

you won’t believe this!”

 

Which one would you click on?

If you’re like most people, you’ll click on the second one because it arouses your curiosity and promises a benefit.

(take a look at ‘Inbox Economics’ for more).

 

2. Gain Your Readers’ Trust

 

So, you created a sweet subject line that got people to open your email. Now you need to create good content so that they read your entire email.

As a bonus, if they like what they see in one email, then they’re more likely to open and read your future emails.

 

So how do you gain readers’ trust?

Like this:

  • * Be honest with your product recommendations. If you wouldn’t recommend it to your mother or your best friend, don’t recommend it to your list.

 

  • * Give your readers what they want and expect. If they signed up for golf tips, give them the very best tips you can. If they signed up for your list expecting to get discounts on products, then be sure you offer those discounts frequently.

3. Get People Used to Promotional Recommendations

 

Sometimes people think they have to “nurture” their list by giving only 100% free content for the first few weeks.

 

NOT true!

 

You want to give your subscribers the very best recommendations for products and services, which will of course include paid offers.

 

That’s why you should promote paid offers from email #1, which also lets your readers know what to expect from day #1.

 

Okay, so those are three proven tips for boosting your response rate-but these are really just the tip of the iceberg.

If you want to know what one of the net’s top marketers knows about getting readers to open, read and buy from your emails, then go Read what he says Click Here.

Now just to stir the pot, a mentor I am following (very successful) says you need to layoff the selling and give people a chance to get to know you.

With that said,  would you send selling emails from day #1 and every time? 

Two different  Marketers, two different points of view.

 

Hmm.

 

Gets confusing doesn’t.  

So study up so you can make some changes to upgrade your email marketing to this new year! 

The tips and strategy and best practices change from year to year. 

So Change Yours!!

 

To Your success,

Content Marketing for SEO

At last when it comes to using content marketing for SEO there is an easy answer!  

This answer just depends on who you listen to. I’ve been watching some Google videos about SEO and ranking your website or pages (not the same thing)…

Almost every one has ended with the same words…

Optimize your website and your content for intended human readers, not for a robot.  

Content Marketing is king

Content Marketing is king

You can use search engine optimization(SEO)to make your content easier for your readers to find, read and also move within your site to related or relevant content.

That old quote, “killing two birds with one stone” certainly applies!

Good content organization and correct linking evolve into pleasure for your readers while enabling search engine robots to serve up what you have shared.

In other words spend your time making your content easy to read, deliver what you promised in your headline and forget loading it up with keywords for keyword loving search engine robots. 

Old, but new again. 

Actually marketing with content never went away. 

Fresh “quality” content devoted to answering questions and solving problems will always have a seat at the dinner table.

So to just keep things straight, this article’s content could be listed under

  • Marketing,
  • SEO
  • Copy Writing or even
  • Blogging or
  • Traffic

all of which is the end goal of all the writing and sharing you spend time and money doing.

But our headline (title) promised some tidbits about Content Marketing and SEO. 

Since you are interested in using content as the foundation and base for your marketing, it makes sense to construct it in such a way that people can find it and make use of it. 

Also keep up to date by changing your site structure (not the pretty part) but how you connect content together. 

If you have hundreds of articles then you want the ones that cover a similar topic to at least shake hands so your reader has a clue and can find them. 

Maile Ohye a Google Developer Tech Lead has made several videos and explains some of the steps involved.

I shared a video called “5 common mistakes in SEO (and 6 good ideas)” because it not only covers SEO, but content and some great tips on what to include in it and even how to do your SEO optimization at the same time.

It sometimes gets confusing and hard to remember where you are going and how to get there!  

She starts off the video with emphasis on basically using your article description or “rich snippet” to highlight whatever product or service you are selling (directed more to physical products than internet marketers hawking digital products!).

However, here is the secret, this and several more of her suggestions can be altered just a little and used for the same purpose by any kind of content marketer. 

It is going to be up to you to develop a strategy so you can benefit from SEO while you are also providing valuable content to your readers. 

  • Some of the things to keep in mind are:
  • How does content marketing work
  • Why Content matters 
  • Content marketing resources 
  • The Importance of content marketing

It becomes more important to keep your site and content up to date. Visitors and searchers are always looking for fresh new ideas to help solve their blogging, marketing and traffic problems.

So if you can add some new snippets of information to an old article sitting on your site and bring it forward in its new dress…Sure saves a lot of hard work and adds to your fresh updated appearance.

Mobile Marketing Why Use It?

The Hype That Goes With Mobile Marketing

I wrote this article several years ago, 2011 to be exact.  Things have changed on the waterfront, so I am doing some updating.

For one thing, the program that I was so enthralled with, sunk into the eCommerce netherland to be seen no more…but I actually found another program that includes some common sense!

Check out this training.

I’m listening to a video that comes with this program about tapping into a Mobile Market of over 3 billion hungry buyers…
and wants to put the secret of BANKING BIG in your hot hands! (left over Hype!).

One of the tips being explained is one that makes sense.

Before you start using Mobile Marketing,

determine the age of your targeted prospect.

Why?

People over 40 are not as likely to respond to text messages…they might respond better to voice messages directing them to your website which they can access on their PC! 

(this was part of the instructions if you were going to send texts and voice mails to mobiles)

A Few Precautions When Using Direct Contact Messages

Keep in mind also that some people, especially older users sometimes have limits on their number of calls and won’t appreciate unwanted commercial spam that costs them money.

Younger users are very text savy and most of the time text messages aren’t limited, so this one fact may be an important factor in what method you choose and what you market.

Make sense? 

Even though the program was over hyped and over priced, they did have some practical suggestions for using what they were peddling!

It is possible to build a virtual superhighway to easy mobile money!

But you had better follow the rules for using text for marketing. There are complex laws and rules and regulations in place and before you start, you had better know the rules!

And follow them!

There are systems that automate text marketing.

This new program I found, doesn’t include one.

  • What it does include is:
  • information about how to market,
  • what kind of messages to send and that really important one..
  • .how to use mobile squeeze pages and
  • what to integrate into them.

Incentives must be included in offers to get customers to subscribe.

Make sure the “gift” is really valuable and helpful, otherwise you miss your chance!

Ever Feel You Always Miss the Boat?

Ever wonder why, despite your best efforts
and the never-ending promises of all the “guru” sharks,
you end up being not successful and clueless?

Could it be because you buy programs and they leave out that important information about how to use what you have bought?

I don’t mean the step by step instructions on how to set up a program, but that intangible that makes the difference?

In other words, the extra steps that end up making the difference in whether the program works or not?

This guy found out why!

And the answers he’ll give you will
start you thinking.

But the solution he offers will give you tangible hope
and REAL MONEY beyond your wildest dreams, but only if you Do Something!

I’ve never had anything work for me that produced an immediate fortune.  Have you?

Some of the final words in his video are that if you know how to run an email marketing campaign then you can do mobile marketing.

You must keep in mind that receivers of your mobile messages may have to pay for receiving your message…so it had better be valuable to your possible new subscriber and fulfill a need…plus include a strong call to action!

A lot of information to remember, but get the video and listen to it several times…each time you will learn something new!

Literally.

Want to see what I mean?  Well, I had a link to a great program, but somehow the link quit working, but take a look at this program…From a different Marketing Point of View. 

You have to scroll down to the bottom of the page completely if you want to get the program with the videos.

But the interesting thing about this program is that it targets mobile user without having to text or message them directly.

Look at the Mobile Marketing Profit Plan
or

Underground Traffic Blueprints

and see which one will be more useful for you.

I can’t decide for you..that’s your choice.

Both of these programs are loaded with extra bonuses, BUT the basic information of how to use Mobile Marketing is there and updated in 2015  and working just fine!

In other words you are getting a terrific basic understanding of how to use mobile marketing, set it up and that all important INTANGIBLE :

how to combine the step by step with the knowledge of how to measure, track and make an informed decision of what is working and what won’t work.

You aren’t Coca Cola or Macy’s so you must know how to use the system on your budget.

  • Text marketing is so successful because 94% or better of text messages are read immediately upon receipt…
  • how do you think that compares to
  • reading emails,
  • letters received in the mail or
  • clicking on banner ads on a website?

Think!

P.S.  Most of the links are affiliate links, so if you go and look, please use common sense and make sure you will need or use what is offered.  Sometimes I make a small commission, but don’t buy if you aren’t going to use.  Just common sense.

Backup Creator Review Almost 100,000 Users

A recent review of Backup Creator revealed that over 963,000 plugin are in use.  That means it   is closing in on being used by over
One Hundred Thousand happy users.

I Count myself among them.  Having purchased it on the day it was officially released. 

Backup Creator Protect

Backup Creator Protect

I have used it ever since on any site I have put up. Prevent the dismay that comes from breaking your site and don’t know how to fix it.

This works for that too.  Just do a backup before you make changes each time…do your work and if ok, back up again..so you always have two currents backups.

This site in particular has been rescued three different times because I was lucky enough to have it installed. 

Nothing worse than navigating to your site and getting an error code instead… Oh Happy Day! or not even an error code just a plain white screen, or even worse one of those fashion conscious guys with a mask and funky music, pointing out that he now “owns” your site.

Take a short trip and watch the training video…there is some good training included..how to use this plugin to service clients..doing backups, clones, move sites from server to server..even provide security in the form of safely stored backups. Watch video here.

If you are into installing sites for clients, would it be nice to have a “template” site with all the plugins, legal pages, etc in place and just have to install, edit the content and it is ready to go?

I have used it to move sites from one server to another…
Very simple get your domain, name servers pointed then install a fresh WordPress on the domain in the new server.

Upload Backup Creator plugin, hit restore and send it to get the backup you have saved, either on your hard drive, S3 or dropbox…Three or Four clicks and the work is done.

Just like Robert Plank says somewhere in the video, “click, click, click and it is done.”

Just an added note, the greatest gift from this plugin is the assurance of an easy fix when the Hackers come calling.

If you have a backup of everything on your site then the clean up and repair is a much happier and worry free undertaking.  

Enough chatter from me, go watch some great training on how to use a plugin to make a living.

  For Real.

Cararta

I really love this plugin it has saved my site more than once.

Review: Carl Topping’s Digital Media Market

Launching a new program is hard work and this review of Carl Topping’s Digital Media Market contains factual information acquired by observation and frequent digital contact. I have been watching Carl Topping work night and day getting his new baby ready for its coming out.

Digital Media Market

Digital Media Market

Digital Media Market officially launched today and is ready for the world!
Since I had special access to the site, I’ve been able to keep up with all the changes and additions.

One thing for sure, anyone who takes advantage of this special will be ahead of the game.

Let me explain.

What is Digital media Market?

Digital Media Market is filled with Carl’s own products, plus a few other tools that he acquired and made available to use with the Supply of PLR and RR already on board.

Those accepting his invitation will also have full access to a full house that has been added to since January, 2014.

What is in there?

  • special reports,
  • ebooks,
  • audios,
  • videos,
  • software,
  • templates,
  • articles, and much more.

Question?


Are you trying to create your own product from scratch and finding yourself struggling and maybe even paying out too much along the way?

Well now you can get started selling top quality products right away without going through all the hassle that comes along with creating your own.

  • When you join Digital Media Market You will have access to thousands of dollars of
  • Resale Rights,
  • Master Resale Rights, and
  • Private Label Rights products without the cost.

    “Resell Rights And Private Label Rights Both Allow You To Sell Products As Your Own And Keep 100% Of The Profits!”

    Since selling Digital Media Products is one of the easiest business to create right now, you need to take a good look at this.  

    When you luck in and get a great tutor who is willing to provide everything you need, including

  • tools,
  • complete how to do it instructions and 
  • teach you what he has been doing….

Well now you can get started selling top quality products right away without going through all the hassle that comes along with creating your own.

Again, since Selling Digital Media Products is the easiest business model online today and having a complete range of ever growing products with Resell Rights and Private Label Rights products means you can keep 100% of the profits time and time again.The more products you have to sell the more money you make!

Seems simple enough, but there is one thing Carl can’t give you or even sell you.

That one thing is the determination and ambition and desire to work hard enough to make a success of this.


I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but if you aren’t willing to invest some time and have a real desire to become your own boss…then give this a miss.

Carl Topping

Carl Topping

Carl started his business while working a full time job, often with a varying work schedule so he often missed seeing wife and children while working those strange hours.

Just so you will know in advance…there is NO magic button, no short cut. 

It means you have access to everything you need to create income on the internet. 

What you will get here are the tools, support and guidance.
Take a look and see if you are man or woman enough to make a success of this.

Carl Explains what he is offering you HERE.

Omar Martin asked the Question: Are You doing The Right Thing for Right Now!

Omar Martin Questions and Explains about

“ARE YOU DOING THE RIGHT THINGS FOR “RIGHT NOW”?

Omar Martin was answering a question about how a beginner or even a little more experienced “marketer” could improve their results and begin to earn some income using affiliate marketing.

One thing I have heard Omar emphasize over and over (in coaching classes at My Unfair Advantage) is that each person who aspires to live the much touted “Guru Life Style” is in for a rude awakening. 

There is no Shiny Magic Button.

When he begins to talk, if you want to succeed, then you had better listen.  Lets start listening now to some home truths he shared in our group.

Here’s a basic concept that eludes most people. I didn’t get it at first either but when it finally clicked, things started happening MUCH faster for me.

People always say “Model Success” – and it makes perfect sense right?

If you want what a man has then “do what a man does”. Great saying.

Omar Martin asked the Question

Omar Martin asked the Question

HOWEVER…

you’ve got to understand that what a man is doing NOW to grow what he has

is NOT the same thing he did to GET what he has now.

 

Let me break it down for you…

  1. Those things I was doing daily in my online business to get to 5 figures were totally different than what I had to do to get to 6 figures.
  2. The things I had to do daily to get to 6 figures were totally different than the things I had to do to get to 7 figures.

Those things I’m doing daily NOW to get to 8 figures are COMPLETELY different than the things I was doing when I first started.

I mean some “core” things are the same: like checking emails and stuff like that, but then again, even a lot of those functions are much more streamlined now and I use assistants for a lot more things now as well.

The Lesson to be Learned!

The lesson to be learned here is that if you’re just starting out but trying to model EXACTLY what I’m doing now then you’ll probably fall flat on your face.

Notice I said “probably” cause there’s always that superstar that can jump into the game, take one look at what I’m doing, master it and then get even BETTER at it then me.

The Key to Adapting a Business Program.

  • *The key is to follow the steps I took to get me here, using the knowledge of how I broke through certain barriers and it will help you do it even faster than me.
  • *If you are expecting to jump on the scene and make 6 or 7 figures in a matter of months or even in your first year then you’ve got a rude awakening coming bro, and it’s gonna hit you right in the face. HARD.
  • *This is a business. Period. If you think of it ANY other way you’ll fail.
    I don’t give a sh** what anybody says. Chances are if they tell you something different, they’re just trying to sell you something.

Most start up business out there don’t turn a profit for the first 5 years and that’s IF they make it past year number 3. This varies by industry, so do some research.

Do yourself a favor and stop trying to get rich tomorrow and stop looking for that easy button because this sh** right here takes hard freaking work.

Anything that’s worth anything always does.

  • There is no coach out there that can teach you work ethic and conviction.
  • And there’s no product out there that contains them either.
  • You’re either determined or you’re not.

The cool thing about being an ONLINE business owner is that it takes very little start up capital, and you can build it piece by piece from your lap top in a spare room like Melinda and I did.

  • We had no extraordinary technical skills what so ever.
  • We just had conviction 
  • Funny thing is that with enough conviction everything else falls into place.

Pick your level of participation, check out how Omar lets you copy his Work Plan.  Read More

 

P.S. Reworded a little, but most of the above is from a post on Facebook inside the My Unfair Advantage group page, explaining why you can’t just be a beginner and start copying what Omar is doing right now and expect automatic success and why you will run into trouble.
Thanks for  reading.

The Challenge: Mindset and Making Choices

Mindset and Making Choices..

Bloggers and Marketers make choices every day that affect whether they succeed or fail.  Mindset and making correct choices is an integral component of real life and not limited to what you do on the internet.

Sergio Celebrating

Ever watched a friend struggling to change their mindset and habits or make a decision to go in a different direction to meet the challenges facing them?

Cheered them on and hoped they would make it when they issued a very public notice that they intended to do something as as “Experiment” just to see if that particular solution would make the difference that could change their life.? 

After watching the very, very public struggle of my friend Sergio Felix to put a new wrapper on his private life and change a behavior that for many people takes over their life to the complete detriment of success in business, personal relationships and attaining goals in either, I couldn’t resist issuing a challenge.

Hmm…was hoping you could outdo John Thornhill and make it 60 days. Well, you can always start over and see if you have the moxie to make it for 60 days.


Challenge!


I Want a written (not video) assessment of last 30 days compared to the 30 days prior. Then make your video.
Not asking for much…you can write in your sleep, like falling off a log, it just flows. Have been missing your written words of wisdom.
“Hey, how are you doing?
I have both good and bad news for you…
Basically, the bad news are that I haven’t posted anything here for a really long time.
The good news are that I’m going to make it up to you!”
What I like about the written is the above.
Read the Rest here

 

FaceBook Post.

I am not revealing private information about Sergio.  If you check out his Facebook postings they are filled with videos regarding a challenge he made for himself and invited the world to watch him win or lose!

The challenge wasn’t just about whether to exclude alcohol from his life, but to also do some positive house cleaning regarding his clothes, knick knacks and The Big Clutter in what he was doing with his off time when not working at his job.

Along the way Sergio shared some updates from his 9 to 5 job that he decided to take to add a more stable income into the mix.  Sometimes laments, sometimes pride.

Sergio Certified a Goal Met

Sergio Certified a Goal Met

 

Life is a puzzle, an interactive slate, ever changing, always reflecting what we have written on the chalkboard.  We can take an eraser and remove what we have written, but the shadow of what was there remains.

Our mindset, our decisions and what we do with both have a great influence on what happens or doesn’t happen in our lives.

Sergio has an advantage over most Bloggers and “Wanna be” Internet Marketers.
He is blessed with an encyclopedic mind filled with all that technical IT information that is necessary to design and maintain a website using WordPress, Html or even create a server.

All acquired through study and hard work.

Sergio also has an enviable writing talent that seems to magically explode his innermost thoughts into words that people line up to read.

But, like most of us, Sergio is still struggling.

Why?

Because even with all his talents, he is also blessed with some roadblocks!

Believe it or not…Ethics, Trust and Honesty seem to have overwhelmed his ability to Sell or even Market if you want to call it that.

I always went to his blog to read when he was still actively posting, because the information in one article was often worth more than what was included in a paid offer from someone else!

Wondered how he ever made any money!

He didn’t have his own product that he was selling, no banner ads…(they were all hidden on a page called “Resources”) and even though he laid it out very clearly in an article titled
How To Achieve The “Know, Like & Trust” Factor Almost Instantly With Video
back in May, 2013 he didn’t do it!

A learner not a doer?

I can recall one December when his advice to me was, “You’ve learned enough, now start doing.”

Seems that it took a long time for Sergio to begin changing his mindset and begin using some of that wealth of information rattling around in his head along with his good advice to me.

I think that his Experiment has been a big Boost for Sergio even though he is still not admitting that the item in question was detrimental for him, other than it was a financial drain that he could not afford because he was determined to get out of debt.

Sergio's Detox

Sergio’s Detox

He was very persnickety with me one time (well one time of many..I’m opinionated and have little restraint in voicing what I think) when I mentioned Seth Larrabee and his success since eliminating Alcohol from his life and using the time and money to do something more with his life.

 

Seth Larrabee Living From the Outside In Inside Out

Seth Larrabee Living From the Outside In Inside Out

Here is an excerpt from a post Seth did on Facebook February 26, 2015.
“How do you create massive success in your business and your life?
You start by designing what you want to be, do, or have – ONE MINUTE AT A TIME!
Creating new empowering habits is never easy because we all start off comfortable with the habits we have, whether they are good for us or not.
So the key is to just start doing SOMETHING that will begin moving you toward the outcome you desire a little each day.”
Post is here

Seth goes on to say that small actions done with regularity will produce measurable results.

Seth’s picture is a picture of what you can do if you create new habits, new ways of thinking and start using what God has given you in your personal life as well as your business.

Mindset and Making Choices can Become A Habit

 

Mindset and really working to accomplishing a goal have to become a new habit in your life…replacing the old. Or else you will look up and a few years down the road, you will be sitting in the same seat you are glued to now. Dreaming and wishing and not accomplishing.

Applies to personal as well as financial goals, but the Personal and mindset come first.

Question? Do you think Sergio is going to accomplish what he wants to this time?  Or does he still have that unacknowledged “Experiment” hovering around waiting to re-establish its self and a habit?

This article definitely wouldn’t be a part of “How to Win Friends and Influence People” but perhaps could be classified like one of my Facebook groups…Sharing is Caring and Caring is Sharing.

What is your advice to Sergio?  Other than find another friend!

Pinterest Changes Now! Banning Affiliate Marketers Links

Whoah,

I was reading along on Facebook and ran across this article
about Pinterest. Seems they are now banning affiliate links.

 

Here is a small excerpt from the article….

“Build your own blog / brand
Provide added value
Link back to your site from third-party venues
Build a list
Create a relationship with those on your list
Care about your readers
Market to those people as if they were your friends and family

The message is and always will be – work to build a business (emphasis on WORK).”

http://netprofitstoday.com/blog/pinterest-bans-affiliate-links/

Since I had learned a hard lesson already, dealt out by Google through YouTube I was a little leery when it came to Pinterest

Even though Everyone said, Pinterest allows affiliate links, but I had this
doubt way down in my soul.

So for the most part, when I pinned anything
on Pinterest…that should have had an affiliate link in it…

I instead
linked back to a post on my site or

to a shared page site that I use and
let the affiliate link exist there…

either as a banner ad in the side bar

or a text ad in the content.

 

 So except for a couple of videos pinned from YouTube that had

links in the first line of the description…everything was intact…..

All my links were to Posts or pages on my site or something that I had liked and

shared from someone else and the link was to their content on their website.

The moral of the whole story, is to build your own business, don’t depend on someone else or something they are letting you use.

Keep in mind, that if you don’t own it, you don’t control it. I’m not saying don’t use Social Sites or other programs,

just handle with care…you are a “renter” paid or unpaid. So your stay can be limited by your landlord….

I mean have you ever taken the trouble to read YouTube’s terms of Service especially when you are signing up to use something new? 

I always notice that little threat so artfully inserted into that mountain of text:  This is being offered for free to use, but at a later date we might charge for this…Google, who just happens to be YouTube’s landlord.

Unfortunately the same thing can be said for paid programs that you use, especially if they are web hosted and not in your control. …..
Doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes things disappear and your house built on someone’s property comes tumbling down when the foundation is removed.

 

Have you ever had a nice surprise like that?  I’d be interested in the details. 

Seems almost like they had a Secret

Super Power Social Sites Webinar and forgot to invite us to attend.

 

That is the reason, I started this article with the ending of the one I read.  Still true.  Depend on what you build and what you own and control.     

Agree or Disagree….

Review: How to Create an Infographic in an Hour!

Well, a review of how to create an infographic in an hour means either being an infographic guru or finding out where and how to do. 

Inforgraphics:  What are they? 

For the uninformed, Infographics are an excellent tool to use to consolidate huge amounts of information, statistics or even related facts that you want to compare.

I was reading a Corbett Barr article about blogging and why you don’t want to create a blog????   Was really an article in an old archive to his old site about building a blog….

Anyway, I continued on to a site called The Gumroad Blog that was explaining how to use content to help run traffic to your product that is listed for sale on their Gumroad sales processor. 

They referred me to Hubspot and their article and free giveaway on how to make Infographics in about an hour and Why you need to use Infographics.

Here is a sample below, detailing Social Media marketing facts and statistics.  Not included in this infographic was some interesting information I read while on Hubspot…64% of people open their email on their mobile appliances…iPhone, iPad or Android. 

What is the world coming to?  Mobile and no Pc

That brings up another point, is your Autoresponder mobile friendly? Better find out!

Plus there is a link so you can go download your own templates and get the detailed instructions on how to make your own infographic (according to Hubspot) in about an hour.

I do believe that they are using Power Point..which I don’t have but I am going to give my Open Office power point imitator  a whizz at it.
Enjoy!  I did! 

Please include attribution to http://blog.hubspot.com with this graphic.  I did!  Check them out.  They give away nice stuff.

Review: 7 Indispensable Content & Website Graders

Review? Is it useful to use website graders or audit your content? 7 Website grading tools can Make a Difference !

Using website graders for auditing your content (for free!) is an indispensable tool for helping to keep you in the flow of providing quality content that provides value to your readers and insures rewards for you as a blog owner.   

After all, doing all that hard work for nothing isn’t a choice!

One always Stands Out

One always Stands Out

 

I ran across this great review of website graders that made me stop and think, so I am  sharing it with you. The visit site link is at the bottom of the page!

Long and involved, but it lists sites to visit and you just type in your URL and find out what is going on!  Here is a small excerpt (unedited) to whet your appetite.

“You can audit your content in many ways—be it a quick-and-simple social media audit or a full-scale blog review. You can take the time to run the numbers yourself (a useful exercise!), or you can plug a URL into I’m the type to always plug our Buffer blog URL into a tool to get feedback. If it’s free and simple, count me in. I’ve bookmarked several of my favorites and dug up a handful of other useful graders and tools to come up with the 12 website graders, content scores, and social media ratings that you see below.”


Some of Kevan’s recommendations for website graders are more useful than others, but at least he takes the time to give a break down on this page of how each works and what to him is the most useful parts. 

I went and tried one of the recommends!  Did a little better than I thought.  Here are some of this site’s results from the  Hubspot site auditor and website grader tool.

Just in case you would like a nice little SEO tool that you can use in your browser (no charge)  to do some checking yourself without having to visit other websites…(I use in Chrome or other browsers) now as FireFox no longer supports…

It is amazing the number of things it will audit and analyze very quickly unless you have a gigantic site. 

It tells you what is broke and how to fix it.

The how to fix it part is important as it links to google tutorials that will walk you through fixing what is wrong. 

I used the images info to good advantage.  Blogging is forever a learning experience! Checks out your content, social, images and links. There is some really great Free  SEO and backlinking training in the video…Plus this is Free!

Robert Plank and Podcast Crusher Featured on iTunes

Creating a Podcast was a little nerve wracking. 

the mindset thing is the problem.  Once you dive right in and start working.  Nothing to it! 

I created this podcast to post on Facebook, but there seems to be a problem about installing an MP3…you can upload a video, but NOT an MP3.  

Here is what the row is all about.  Now something is wrong with this site and I can’t upload pictures.

Always something. If you want a good podcast program  go watch the video here and check it out.
