or later if you want a detailed list of what is in this Membership see it on
the Sales page and check it out here: http://cararta.com/likes/MarketingMc  This is my link to the sales page, so if you want a complete  explanation  of what is on offer this is the  place to read about the Marketing MiniClasses and how it is set up.

Since I was surprised with a gift of membership….picked by Barry Wells….I was aware that part of
the gift required a review of the Membership posted on my Blog as part of my acceptance and use.

Unfortunately at the same time as I acquired this opportunity to become a member of a group that promised help when you need it...just ask a question and get an answer, I became involved with Host Gator in having to redo almost every blog or website I had listed in my account with them because I was using to much CPU.

Never occurred to me to come back to the membership and ask for help….just kept plugging along on my own.
Used almost three months of time that I could ill afford to eventually solve the problem!

At the same time, there was a hiccup with the Membership site…they decided to change their setup and did, so sometimes
when I came back to watch a WordPress video or look for something…I sometimes had a problem logging in, because my Gmail
email address that I use to get updates from the membership kept hiding them so, finding what I wanted to use was a chore!

But, I really wasn’t alone.

Barry Wells, my chosen mentor…(I abducted him from Facebook and could always manage a comment with his name
highlighted so I’d get an answer or suggestion to help me out with my struggle with Host Gator!)

Also because he was added onto the Membership staff, he noticed
my unsuccesssful login efforts and got my correct log in information to me via Facebook Chat which meant I got it right away and didn’t need to depend on an overloaded email box!

I do a lot of posting, sometimes on Twitter and my Facebook Fan pages, but felt I had a problem with using Pinterest!
So today,  I’ll not be doing a complete review of this whole membership program.

Barry did a great review of the Membership and posted it on his Blog
You can read it here:  Marketing Mini classes All is Revealed  that details every thing on the site!

Plus there is another great review written in May by Donald MacLeod :  Marketing MiniClasses   Which details every hidey hole on the site!

I like this small excerpt from Barry Wells article (Link Above):

Sharing is caring…
If you’ve enjoyed this post and the tour of Marketing Mini Classes then please use the tools available to share it with your friends and followers. Who knows, it could be just what they have been hoping for.

Now down to the real business of this post.

I decided that since I am a member (still in good standing) to use the course that is provided on how to use Pinterest.
Found my new credentials, logged in, opened up the course…and starting watching the videos.
One thing I’m happy with is that they are short!

Learn How to Really Use Pinterest!  The Easy Way.

It makes it much easier to go sign into my Pinterest account and work along with the videos as
I learn things I never knew about Pinterest!

Since we are all involved with blogging for two good reasons….helping others learn what they need to know to hopefully become successful bloggers and at the same time earn some income to help support our efforts, then using Pinterest as a Social sharing place seemed logical!

I was grateful to discover that Pinterest at this time doesn’t seem to mind links to your website or even affiliate links!

A Membership With Great Support

A Membership With Great Support

So I went to Pinterest and made some changes…edited       some of the descriptions, because you can put a working  link in a description!

Take a Look!

Now that is a great  improvement over what I had there     before!

I still have some more work to do to finish the complete

Pinterest course,  more than half way through.

Sharing on Pinterest is the clue…just like sharing on

Facebook is important.

Something important I found out in this course is the

importance of using keywords….even on Pinterest SEO

counts.

If your curiosity isn’t peaked yet, I think you need to go

to Facebook and join our group….comment and get  acquainted with some of the members or our group.

Here, I’ll make it easy:   Marketing MiniClasses on Facebook 

If you know a friend who is having a hard time learning what they need to know about Blogging, Using Videos, Marketing and trying to make money on the internet…then share our Marketing Miniclasses with them.   Since I am only about one half way through the Pinterest program, I’ll come back at a later and update on what else I have learned.  Cararta Likes Marketing MiniClasses

Can You Build an Email List….Just Using Articles on Your Blog?

Cararta and Andrew

Cararta and Andrew

Still working on building an email list….

Know I need one, Think I want one,
but have a feeling of dread at writing emails, emails email ……

Don’t mind writing articles, even comments aren’t bad…
but emails……………….hard time connecting

I know, I’ll just copy Robert Plank’s  emails to me….
put them in a file and do a little editing
or since I would like to do a little affiliate marketing and have some
great products like Back up Creator…That Paper Plate Theme thing …even PodCast
Crusher  I’m sure there is an email left over in my overflowing box…

What is Facebook Doing to Emails as a Sales Vehicle?

But talking about emails and how all these social things..may or may not affect emails……..google plus did something
strange…I have this site about Diabetes…went into the valley lately..
a friend said he finally found me on page 43 if searching for sugar control  like (just type it in an look)

Well, I did a proxy search tonight….guess who is on page 1 number 1 for
a post I did on my site August, 2012 and left a Facebook comment somewhere about it
that G+ picked up and decided it liked…even if old….
and no SEO in title but did make it into the first sentence….

Sugar Control Diet Facebook Number One for a Day

Sugar Control Diet Facebook Number One for a Day


“Some foods strange to the regular American diet are recommended in this diet cookbook and blood sugar control plan! “

Plus Andrew (my Orange and White buddy) and I are sitting there taking it all in….

Does a Picture help With Rankings on Google + or Google?

Almost every results on that page had a picture…My picture was my gravatar guess a picture is a picture.

Maybe we need to develop a different POV….there are always new people
coming into the internet…getting interested in Marketing and Blogging so maybe their
email boxes aren’t overflowing ….yet.

About any of this, there is one thing that is a MUST…
be consistent..

  • posting,
  • commenting,
  • sending your emails

If nothing else make yourself a schedule like my Grandma did:

Monday washing (laundry)
Tuesday Ironing (pillow cases first so can make up the beds)
(takes a long time when you heat the irons on a wood burning stove) .
Wednesday go to church
Thursday churn the butter
Friday weed the garden (her domain-the men did the big cotton & corn fields)
Saturday Bathe all the children…8 grandchildren she took care of including me!
Sunday Church and Sunday Dinner (at home)

In addition to the above she had a few jobs that were done daily:

milk Bessie and the heifer…(delegated to me & my cousin Ralph)

Cook for 8 children & 3 to 5 adults….add 4 more adults on the weekend (parents of the 8 children …home from jobs in town at the “Mill”)
Breakfast:
Ham, Bacon, Sausage, Biscuits,milk gravy and grits & eggs. Fruit…canned or fresh
pack lunches for the men to take to the fields along with quart jars of “Sweet Tea”

Lunch for kids usually breakfast left overs, even cornbread and milk

Dinner: Smoked ham or pork from the smoke house, vegetables..fresh or her own canned from the garden. Cornbread and biscuits…

No electricity, no refrigeration except for “spring house” to keep milk and butter.
At night all leftovers were fed to the pigs…called Slopping the hogs...along with
un shelled ears of corn…..pea shells..

Oh yeah,

feed the chickens and gather the eggs every day…and lock them in the hen house at night….anything that moves likes to eat chickens..hawks, foxes, possums, raccoons, mink and wild cats (baby sized mountain lions never saw one, but Grandpa said they are there and you would hear them talking to the world at night).

A few other little jobs added in…sweep, mop, make lye soap to do laundry, dishes
and even wash the floors….make up all those beds, clean out the fireplace,
clean out the wood burning kitchen stove (save the ashes for making soap)

Delegating and outsourcing she knew….

The boys brought buckets of water up from the spring down in the “holler” to
fill up the reservoir in the stove (hot water to dish washing),
Water for the chickens, pigs, mules, horses and fill up the water can on the back porch,

Girls…do dishes or help by drying and putting away..wipe down the stove with
Lard to make it shine….clean the lamp shades (kerosene and they smoked) help with the chickens and churning the butter.  On wash day bat the clothes, run the wringer, help hang up the clothes to dry.

Entrepreneur before the word was invented:

Traded extra eggs for some butter from a neighbor..she liked her mold with
flower pictures on the butter….ours was just round and plain!

Traded cured ham for beef roast with another neighbor.

She didn’t write it down…just got up every day and Did It.

She was as methodical and organized as Robert any day of the week.

Hmmm….and here I am ‘ whining about writing a few emails.

Really wish I was
my Grandmothers Daughter like my younger sister is…

Up early and go from dawn to dusk without stopping.

Hi Cararta,

Really nice rant . . . uuuh article.

But I don’t get it?

If you can write like you just showed us you already have the key to reader engagement, and emails.

Just add a few curiosity triggers, some questions for them to ask themselves and maybe respond to you with and divide your articles up into 2 or 3 parts hook a few together,

add some points about your product or an affiliate product (with a link in SOME of your mails) related to the area your list is in

and before you know it you have an email sequence built.

Load those into your autoresponder a day or 2 apart from each other and

vola, you have folks opening your mails right and left because they want to hear what you are saying.

That builds your credibility and helps spur folks on to open your mails and links that are inside.

Keep me posted how you progress
warmly
David
David-Whitfield.com

In case you thought I’ve lost it.  All of the above was a comment I left on Robert Planks Blog

and a response from  a Very Nice David Whitfield.

On an article titled:

The Worst Kept Secret of Internet Marketing: Email Every Day, Sell Every Day,

Make Money Every Day

which I was reading to get some ideas and inspiration to build an email list.

So if I want an email list to worry about sending emails to, I’ve decided to write about my thought process, lack of action (that comment was in June, 2013!), can’t say I don’t take my time!

AND  what I have been doing to make some progress.  I have two processes that I am using,

so if you want a click through, either check out that text link right below the header on this page or zip over to

Cararta.com  where things are nice and neat and easy.

Question.  Do you have something that you work on, almost finish and then Hit the Big Road Block

and it is still sitting there?

I could have started this months ago, but I just couldn’t make myself create a folder on my site to upload my Gimmie  (that’s a give away for the non slangers)  into.

I think the mental exertion to make the decision and do it was much more stressful that the actual doing!

How about you?  Still wrestling in your head?

So You Want To Build an Email List

Build your email list!

Heard that before somewhere?

It is so prevalent that it is like mosquitoes  in a Florida swamp!

I’ve been working lately, on building an email list after having a WordPress

Website since March 5, 2011.

When I first got started working on Al Gore’s  Internet,

everything I saw was about “Get a Domain name and a Host.”

From there I moved on to trying to make the site look as nice as possible with my free  WordPress theme.

It finally penetrated a few months ago, you can blog all day til the cows come home,

but if Google, who controls 90% or so of search engine traffic doesn’t have you on their

You are Invited to the Party

list as one of those 10  super stars  who are really welcome….then hang it up as far as getting traffic to your site.

Those cute little banner ads will be nothing more that some colorful decoration on your pages.

They might break up the monotony of the landscape and make you feel like you are really doing some Marketing, but what you are doing is spinning your wheels.

So, being me…in case you haven’t met me, I decided to check out a few Email Guru’s.

Here is something I snagged from Frank Salinas…snatched right out of an email he sent to me.

Demo of EZ Share Generator

It is all about a cute little piece of software that you can get access to by clicking on this link,

I WANT TO CHECK IT OUT!

This is what Frank has to say about that EZ share Generator

“Brand New Software Quickly And Easily Gets You Unlimited Amounts Of Targeted Traffic From Facebook, Google & Twitter Without Being A Computer Genius Or Fancy Pants Programmer…Guaranteed”

Just for the fun of it you also get a nice  Report with lots of links to some of Franks favorite tools

that he uses for keeping his email business ticking.   And a link from me on the very bottom of the last page for another gimmie!

The total cost of just an email address…make it a good one, cause there are some more Gimmies on the way!

Scan all the way to the bottom inside the report and click the link,  A super bonus is awaiting.

Knowing someone makes it easier to spend a little money!

Well, back to building an email list, I bought a 100 clicks from a friend on Facebook…cause I know what kind of guy he is.   Might even share his name with you, if you want to visit https://www.Facebook.com/InternetMoneyStore and leave a comment on something and ask me for a link to my Solo Ad guy.

Only ordered 100 clicks, wonder if he over delivered?

Aweber List set up Sept 22, 2013

Aweber List set up Sept 22, 2013

According to what I’m learning, I need to set up a click tracker…but the one recommended is

not quite in my budget ….maybe later when I have a miracle list and learn how to use it to get my friends to visit Skipper Works!

Talked to my friend the first day and he said my click through rate was 60%….”They must have

liked it!”

Have you started an email list yet?  I’ve looked and tried and dithered around,  putting off getting started….Well, I’m in!

Email List Building Tool

Email List Building Tool

And added another job to the schedule….Email Copy writing.

Have you built an email list yet?

How long did it take to get up to about 500 if you have?

And another question, do you think an email list is worth the time, work and money that you

invest to get it going?

Thanks for your input,  I know it takes time, but will be appreciated!

SEO Keywords for the Future: Audio not Written Text

Is the future of SEO and Keyword Optimization Changing?

Is the future of SEO for keywords wrapped in Oral queries and not what you type in on your PC or mobile keyboard?
I started my morning with my usual habit: Log into C-panel and check the links in awstats on SkipperWorks, trying to figure out what keywords are being linked to!

If you aren’t in the know, I’ve had a huge problem with this nice collection of Chinese bots…haven’t figured out if they are really searching for information or just spamming my site…I mean 1,868,323 “Hits” so far this month and going strong.

They all link to one article….every one. I had almost as many 400 errors as hits from them. Took a chance and changed the title of the article…just added one word to the front end of the title and edited the perma link.

My Chinese bots dutifully followed the article, so now I am getting a soup can full of 302s instead of 400s.

But this interesting experiment isn’t what I want to talk about today!

Do You Spend To Much Time Learning SEO and not Doing?

I, unfortunately tend to stay to much in the “learning” phase of blogging, instead of the Doing it Now and make some needed cash! Just to put things into perspective, I definitely have a deficit when it comes to doing my SEO….find a good keyword and some extras and write an article including them all.

Think I was following a link from Lisa Magoulas and ended up on Moz.com and started reading an article by Will Critchlow about using voice queries to do searches on the phone….

His initial take was that voice navigation instead of typing in keywords wasn’t going to make it!
In his own defense he presented a lot of reasons why he came to this conclusion….The whole article is here: http://moz.com/blog/i-think-i-might-have-been-wrong-about-voice-search for your convenience in checking it out!

To make a long story shorter, Will thinks  that Google has developed and is refining  the process of doing “audio or voice” searches which combines minimum input with your personal information to return the results you want immediately.

Remember that laughed at social sharing thing called Google + that hardly anyone uses?   Hangouts?  Google Chat?

SEO and Your YouTube Videos…Sound Counts as Much as Text?

I know from listening to Ray Lane the Video Guy that he recommends repeating your YouTube video title and your major keyword (which should be in the title) when you begin talking on your videos…all for the SEO benefits…

He seems to think that these “Audio” keywords are just as important or even more important than those tags we enter and keywords sprinkled into the description.

Since Keyword optimization is part of my active quest for ranking my site (wrong goal, Google ranks Pages not sites!) I was happy to run across this article and some of the gold included.

It all goes back to why some of my videos rank quickly and others just sit there unless I Tweet or Facebook them to get some traffic! Definitely videos with a voice over, even not keyword optimized seem to do better than the ones with music.

Since you can now end up with a Google or is it Youtube transcription on your video…should you be doing your own transcript and attaching it to your videos?

If one is attached, you can edit it and include your marvelous keywords in the first line and sprinkle them down in the body and at the end….just as if you were writing an article to post on your blog…

Somewhere I read that the transcript doesn’t even need to make sense, just give the “robots” an indication of what the video is all about.

The reasoning was that most transcripts furnished by Youtube often don’t reflect exactly what is being said in the video…so the theory expounded was just add your keywords where you want them.

Which brings me to the real reason I was so interested in this article about Voice Querying instead of typing in keywords. I am looking for a program that will take the audio from a video and type it out for you….Instant transcript…instead of paying a service (can’t afford right now) to do the time consuming work for you.

I’ve looked at several add ons in Google Chrome but they aren’t rated that reliable just yet.

Anyone have the name or a link to a program they have used to produce transcripts that doesn’t break the bank?

I’d be interested…leave a comment and let me know!

Just below are two links for some really interesting info on SEO…I am an affiliate for both..so be warned!  But they explain it so much better than I can here…worth reading the sales page for the good…think both also give away a free ebook just for looking.

$100+ Plus A Day While Building an Email List

How to Build An Email List Fast That Produces Real Income

Still not making Real Money with all your Internet Marketing Efforts?

If you are like me, you keep working on your site or blog, doing the articles and comments and endless Tweets on Twitter or likes on Facebook.

Are you still buying those offers that promise the world and deliver just another credit card bill?

Invested in one of those pricey MLMs with forever monthly fees?  Still trying to recover your investment but can’t figure it out?

Just wish for once you could get your hands on something that Really Works and builds a dedicated Affiliate Marketing Email List  fast?

Then there is always a statement on the Sales Pages….If you’ve made it to this page then I’m sure you’ve heard the Guru’s Mantra, “The Money is in the List”  but none that I have bought and met and used so far can really get me to the point of making my own money.

Don’t know if it is their fault or mine.  Maybe I’m missing a step or two and the magic just whizzes right on by!
I’d love to be able to  write and mean it when I say, “Until Today.  Want your Aweber Stats to look like this?

Watch your Email List Grow Every Day

How to Build a Targeted Marketing Email List

I’m in a Facebook Group run by someone I count as a Friend.  I couldn’t believe it when I saw an Offer on his page.  He had allowed David Kirby to post a link to his latest launch, or (maybe relaunch would be a better term)….and the reasons why?   David Kirby has updated and expanded his Rapid Subscribers program and wants to let everyone use what he is using to grow his email list of subscribers, like using fast forward to watch a video!

David reveals that he updated and is sharing because,

“The Internet Changes Every Day….”

Programs must be kept up to date to work and

“This Offer is for My EXACT $5,667.87+ A Month ULTIMATE LIST BUILDING SYSTEM…

This will show you EXACTLY how to get QUALITY SUBSCRIBERS as fast as possible. I also show various other methods I use myself and the EXACT traffic sources I use too plus so much more!”

Is there a Con in this Program?

I’ve gone through some of the  information on this product…the only con I can find is that there is an up sell for more help…up to you to decide. But the inexpensive WSO price for the initial offer gives you a great insight into  what you need to get started.

How Does it Work?

Building an Email List Fast has nothing to do with:
How to Disappoint your parents in 61 seconds by dating a girl they hate

What it has to do with:
is being able to Copy & Paste David Kirby’s EXACT

$5,667.87+ A Month ULTIMATE LIST BUILDING SYSTEM..

Rapid Subscribers & Sales V5.0

The Goal is To create an affiliate marketing email list that grows and makes money while it is growing!

It will work Like The Monster the Kali Muscle Story  a video for muscle builders and mind builders because it is innovative like Kali who had to change to survive and did.

This system for fast list building has also changed so that you are building a list using the exact methods that has allowed David Kirby to make $5,667.87 plus a month, because it is the Ultimate List Building System and what works for David and my friend (I’ll explain below) will work for you if you do what you are instructed to do.

This is a system so powerful that it produces ultra high quality 400 to 500 subscribers every day, after a few weeks of Activating and using it.

Now that doesn’t compare to the 7,820,000 plus people who watched Jennifer Lopez’s, “Live it Up Ft. PitBull” in two days….

But compared to most list building programs, David Kirby’s $5,667.87+ A Month ULTIMATE LIST BUILDING SYSTEM….. is awesome.

What David is offering is his exact $5000 + per month Ultimate List Building blue print.

It is his personal blue print to success…

And to put the icing on the cake, it is a Copy and Paste system.

This Build an Email Fast system is designed to grow fast and you learn how to make money from that list at the same time while it is growing (according to my friend who is using it).

If you truly want to know how to build an email list in the fastest easiest way that is filled with quality subscribers that open your emails and buy your products or affiliate offers that you recommend, then you need this ultra powerful and fast Free TO Implement copy and paste simple list building method.

What you get is Real Traffic and Real Results.

How do I know it works?

I was referred to this program by my friend who has added over 3000 subscribers in the last   few weeks.  He is now able to sell solo ads directly targeted to his niche.

Because he has helped me in the past with problems on my Blog, and I noticed in his posts on his Facebook group that he had gone from adding 25 subscribers a week to adding subscribers in Hundreds…. I asked him how he added so many so quick….

He revealed he is using David Kirby’s Rapid Subscribers & Sales and the best part of it was that he was already earning money, while still continuing to build his list.

He requested that I not publish his name, because he is still working his day job until he builds up enough income to kiss that Day Job,
“Good Bye!”

In my mind I am wondering if I can  use a complete copy and paste system, included in a step by step course with free updates for life, to finally build a real email list that is an asset?

One thing giving me hope is the  hardcore 60 days full money back guarantee..???  Use it and build a list or get all your money back!!!

Learn and Earn at the same time.  My friend using this program has used purchased solo ads as part of what he is doing to get his list building effort into high gear.

By choosing the right sellers he has been able to more than pay for his purchase with the sales generated by the ads, plus acquiring his own new subscribers at the same time.

This part about this program is important 

Because the internet changes every day so what you use for Marketing and Email List Building must change with it or you get left behind.  David Kirby promises to keep this program up to date.

I know from reading as much as I can and even buying email list programs, that there is a basic formula to list building, but this one seems to have an extra twist that puts it on fast forward.

Plus there is that tantalizing statement from  David Kirby that he will keep you up to date when he makes a change in what he is doing

If you are interested in building an Internet Marketing Sales Email List filled with Responsive subscribers, who not only subscribe but buy,  then check out what David Kirby has to say about his program by Reading More Click Here.

What do you think?  I’d appreciate your input!  I love reviewing programs and this time, because I have a referral from someone I really trust, who is using the program and getting results, think maybe just maybe I’ve found a winner!.

Have got to quit writing and make some changes, so I’ll talk to you later.  I did sign up as an affiliate so if you click and buy, I might just make a buck!

Here is a little video I posted on YouTube.  After You watch, I’d appreciate a comment below (on this page)…or a Facebook Like or a Twitter Tweet!  Enjoy! (the commercials are longer than the Video!)

Google Died Everything was gone!

In the middle of the night…really  Yesterday, April 23, 2013, 7:16:46 PM except it was really 1:16  in the morning a.m.  for me…..

I’m working on my site still trying to get rid of those ru sites that have infested it, or at least two of my sites…..all of a sudden all my work pages began  to not load….

Google Graph Died

Google Graph Died

getting either a server error or timed out……so  tabbed over to the front of Skipper Works to get a copy  of something,  scrolled down to the bottom:   Saw this, so I took a screen shot just in case….It had been working fine 5 minutes earlier.

Take a look:    As you can see, the graph went from working to  nothing is just a few minutes!   While I watched the page, the graph stopped and started its slide down to the bottom and then quit.

Absolutely quit working.

Nothing else was working either.  Page by page, using FF and Chrome  I ended up with nothing open and a computer desktop full of  timed outs and server can’t finds.

 

Cashed it all in and went to bed, expecting to see a huge headline about Google going down in the middle of the night…but zero, zilch…nada….not a word.

Google either didn’t hiccup or I imagined this…???

Well, you decide.   I did watch that graph just stop and slide down to nothing.

It was back on  like the next day….was live when I started on this post….scroll down to the bottom of the page…should be on the left….Alive and Well!

My Imagination?  well….not quite…there is that screen shot….  what was earthshaking was watching those lines start to slide….then hit bottom…first time in months that the inquiries for WordPress have been under about 98 on the graph….they started slipping a couple of days ago….down to 89…..might have something to do with all those

HACKER attacks on  WordPress.

What Do You Think?  Guess the Internet really hiccuped and I’m the only one who noticed?

What else is funny is the times are wrong in the graph but think they use a different time zone that US central which is my time….

Were you snoozing at about  1;45 a.m.  and missed it too?

Membership Cube Review

Ever wondered how a membership site works and

how you can make money from a membership site? 

Here is a partial review of Membership Cube:  The Creator of Membership Cube tells all about

working together with a friend to make some nice money by “re-purposing” different kinds

of content to create a membership site.

Robert Plank explains how he and a friend set up a membership site, made money from it on a

monthly basis, but sold it and made money on the sale.

Case Study #8: Dailey Seminar
(“Build it To Sell It” $40,000 Payday)

The second membership site I ever created was built from a bunch of interviews I recorded with a close internet marketing friend.

Here’s a secret I probably shouldn’t give away: the best way to start joint venturing with someone is to simply record 20-minute interviews with that person.

Everyone teaches you to “interview an expert” but the reality is you should instead interview someone in your same niche, on your same level, and get them to interview you as well.

On some interviews, I had 4 questions to ask him. On others, he had 4 questions to ask me. We started using those 20-minute audio recordings as bonuses to our products, but I wanted to make some real money from them.

The end result was a membership site called Dailey Seminar. In addition to the audio interviews, I created fifty-five 20 minute video presentations, he created fifty-five 20 minute video presentations, and I bought the rights to 55 different products.

We launched the site with a year’s worth of content already created in December 2008 and got about 50 members to join at $47 per month. It dripped out a new video every day of the week on total autopilot.

The site made us about $2,000 per month ($1,000 each) for 4 months before we sold it for $32,000, with a year’s worth of content loaded up and ONLY 50 members.

Total profit from that project: $8,000 from the monthly memberships plus our $32,000 buy-out = $40,000 from spending a mere 2 hours per week creating videos.

Interested in Creating your Own

 “Membership Site?”  

Do you think you know what a membership site really is?

Here’s all a membership site is: a place where people can login using a username and password to get to their stuff.

Everything the “gurus” have taught you about membership sites is WRONG

You NEED to have at least 3 successful membership sites to really make it online.

The problem that I see is too many focus on creating one site.

They spend months or longer creating the “perfect” content.

The problem is…

lack of members…

It is much better to rethink how you create these type of sites.

All you REALLY NEED is to be one step ahead of your longest subscriber.

It makes more sense since you can  correct and create the content they need..

Plus you can start earning immediately instead of “someday in the future”

Since I own Backup Creator from Robert Plank (there is a link to it somewhere on this site) and have followed him and Lance Tamashiro  since September, 2011 feel like I know something about them.  My experience with BC and several other products I have bought from them is this:  No review of  Membership Cube would be complete without mentioning SUPPORT  which I have found to be great for all the products I have purchased and everything I have purchased WORKS!

Creating High Value Content Video or Copy Writing

Creating High Value Content is a Formula

 

It doesn’t matter if the content is for a Sales Page, a Presell page on a blog or a Script for a Video or even your latest blog post, it all comes from the same source: You.

The process of creation can be as hard or as easy as you make it.  For example, if you need a sales page,

then there are some rules you need to apply and having a writing formula for sales pages to use and follow will certainly ease the pain of this task!

Just to give you an idea:

It all goes back to the Eternal Mantra:

  • Find  needy people with a Problem
  • Find a Solution to the problem
  • Package and market your problem solving solution.
  •  Skip any step and you are in  trouble.

What works and why it works.

 

When presenting your solution,  you need a way to get agreement from your prospects.

What can you present to get agreement started?

On webinars, I’ve noticed a lot of questions from the presenter that are requesting a YES response.  So….. formulate a question or two and ask for answers.

This is the Problem that no one seems to be able to solve.

Do you have this problem?  

Do you need a quick and easy solution?   Just to get the YES juices flowing.

Separate the opportunity seekers from the buyers who really use what you are offering and reduce refund requests at the same time.

Good questions to ask:

  • Do you buy things and then don’t bother to  use them?
  • Do you evaluate what you buy with this standard:  Will it help me make some money?
  • Do you buy because it is new and is just something you want to buy?

There are other ways to get the response you are looking for so read others ideas and add to what you have found here..

People are always looking for a better solution to their problems or a quicker, easier way to do something that isn’t even a problem.  They will jump for joy when they think they have found one and with some strategic planning and luck it could be you and your solution.

Remember to include quality and a real working solution that benefits the buyer more than what was paid….next time you make an offer they will remember what they got and how useful it was.

Your job is simple. 

Find a real Problem (with as many people who have this problem as possible),  clearly describe and define this problem so that anyone with this problem can embrace it as their own.

Offer the solution to the problem, whether the solution  is yours or someone else’s that you are recommending or promoting.

Instead of a Big Buy Button on the bottom of your page, do a pre sell…..

After you have defined this Unsolvable Problem,

Get the prospect to visualize life without this problem…then furnish a link to the sales page by telling them to read more here to find the solution.  Read more …..

Know What You Want From Your Blog!

You are ready to start setting up your blog: You’ve got your domain name, hosting and even set up Aweber!

You might even know what you want to Blog about,  but one intriguing element is missing!

Very often, this one thing is over looked and is so essential to this process of creating a blog that it can determine the success or failure of a blog before it hits the whole wide world!

What am I talking about?

This: did you ever go sit in the corner and decide what you want from your Blog?

Do you know what you want from your Blog?

I mean other than the obvious: you want to blog about something that interests you or is in your field of expertise

and you want to earn some cash while showing off what you know!

Did you ever give even one little thought to what you would get out of all this work?

Other than  earning  a little cash if you are lucky and investing  hours and hours of work creating content, dealing with mishaps and the eternal house keeping that comes with a WordPress Blog,  have you found your prize, your reward….that elusive intangible that will keep you going?

Altruistic concern for your prospective readers and potential customers may even be part of the foundation of this blog that you are creating or if you are like me…..already created!

That’s nice, but it is not enough.

I’ll be completely honest. I never really thought about what I wanted from my blog.

Not this one,  not the one I created before this about Diabetes.

What changed?

I had a visitor  named Sergio  come visit this  “website” and leave a comment.

I always visit a site and check out the commenter before approving so over I went.  

I loved his blog…filled with posts that people seemed to line up to comment on and even comment on each others comments.

Friends,  from all over the world, talking to Sergio and each other using the comment box to leave their approval or disapproval of his latest post or interesting program or camera or what is changing on Facebook or Youtube or what Google has gone and done Now to help all the bloggers out (Ha! OUT is the word, out and gone!).

I’ve finally decided what I want from my Blog, other than the items listed above.

What do you want from your Blog?

Do You Know yet?

You need to get this right, now before you go ahead with creating your Blog.

I’d like to know what you have decided is essential for you to get out of your blog,  if you know!
