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…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!

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.

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!

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,
Cararta

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!

If my little article got you to thinking, Share by using one of the links below. It might help someone else!

P.S.  Here is a link to a program where you can actually make cash by sharing Videos.
about 3 years old and still going!

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.
