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

Omar Martin Questions and Explains about


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.

For Sale to the World

For Sale to the World


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. The 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.

The 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 shxx 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 shxx 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.

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.

Here are some cures being touted:

Coaching Review: Marketing Where to Draw the Line


This Review about Marketing Tips is part of a

coaching program and is definitely a benefit.

I’m getting told to stop buying all the junk.

A lot of marketers are still selling products that are presented as something that is going to kickstart your efforts into a huge income bonanza in a week.

This isn’t a blueprint for success or a consistent platform for future success.  It is often something that worked for that marketer because he or she had a support structure in place that could take advantage of this particular software or strategy.

So, depending on the marketer, they decide to share and create a “product” that is shared either privately with other “Gurus” or send it out their followers and recruited JVs (joint venture partners).

I added this explanation of a JV because there is probably someone like me who is still learning the marketers vocabulary and doesn’t realize the real source of all those recommendations that pile up in your inbox every day.

If you are on several mailing lists, depending on the level of sophistication of your subscribed-to marketers…you notice that some of the emails are copied and pasted from somewhere.  Except for the difference in the link to click on, it is like watching the exact same TV ad to buy a Kitchen Aide Blender, except it is on sale at Wal-mart instead of Macys.      

All these wonderful offers might work for someone whose level of development and growth has a structure in place to take advantage of a probably temporarily unsaturated technique.

I watch a lot of webinars because like the rest of you, I’m still searching, even though I try to keep focused and work on what I already have.  Plus, I’m a nosey Bessie and want to keep up with what is going on.  Never know, you might hit the gold!

Some things that have stuck:  Remarks that I’ve heard Jason Fladlien make in more that one of his webinar presentations.

No Quote Marks anywhere in this, because it is all what I remember and less, because Jason talks fast and gets so excited you might call it Audio Spam!

Internet marketing requires speed.  When something new comes along, don’t buy it and store it on your hard drive. The minute you download it, go through it and use it the same day.

If you aren’t going to use it, then don’t buy this.  I don’t want tire kickers buying and requesting refunds.  Refunds are not a problem, it is just a personal preference that I have. I want to help people improve their marketing outcome, not waste time downloading and not using what I am offering.  

Who gets there first, gets the money.  That is what this is all about. But, he is quick to emphasize this point:

This isn’t just about the money, it is also about providing your subscribers and buyers with value.  

Jason emphasizes and states over and over…many times on a webinar that he will give the lucky attendees 90% of whatever he is selling.

This is value.  No quotes, because this is what I remember him saying.

Except for a few of my own tweaks that are being sold in whatever I am offering, you could take what I have given you on this webiar and implement it today and earn from it. The difference between using what I have given you on this webinar and what you get in the offer is going to be the speed and ease of setup and how much you eventually earn.

I have also noticed that a consistent part of any offer he makes is videos and written instructions for setting up and using the offer.  If you are technically challenged this can make the difference and is part of that Value he talks about.

Enough on Jason Fladlien.  

The point that might have gotten lost in the shuffle is this:

Learn to critically assess any of the Marketed offers that come into your Inbox.  

Criterior number one should be this:  With what I have in place…a blog on my domain, a Facebook Fan Page, Google Blogs, WordPress com sites, Squidoo, etc.  can I use this offer and integrate it into what I have to improve the results that I am now getting.

To my sorrow, I have in the past bought programs, gone through them and half heartedly used them with dismal results.  

An older and more informed assesment reveals this one flaw in many of the programs marketed today and in the past:  


While many will load you up with a “Bonus” for getting traffic to your site and offers, unless you have the cash on hand for a super Keyword targeted PAID advertising campaign, you’ve just bought some more Hard Drive clutter.

Worse are the ones that include an OTO to the venders suggested backlink farms (which of course cost a pretty penny) and result in de-indexing of your site by Google. Even though they will pre-sell this offer as not needing SEO, Google, Facebook ad infinitum, but is their Traffic solution.

A funny footnote for this ramble is this.  Windows 7 which I recently upgraded to has an interesting feature:  Explorer Search

I can use it to even search my usb portable drive that I plugged into my computer after removing it from my old unfunctioning XP based computer.  

So if you run across an interesting Earth Shaking offer, search your hard drives, use the offer name or the venders name and see what you already have.  You probably have the program already, but are just missing some small piece of software like a new plugin or added bonus that can be acquired under a different name somewhere else and will function for you.

Or even better, you might have unsubscribed from updates and just need to visit the program’s members area, sign in and get the update.  
If you have a program from an active marketer who didn’t bite the dust after selling, then to maintain his reputation he keeps his original offer up to date and many includede free updates for life.

This is especially true for WordPress plugins or binary programs that you use on your desktop. Some get a little hard nosed at times and slightly change the program name so it isn’t just an update, but will often give credit to owners through support for the original purchase so they can “update to the new version” at a discounted price.

I’ve strayed from my beginning thoughts.  My coach did say, “clean out your main email account, move subscritions or unsubscribe and Stop buying.”

The following is what I fixed in my mind, not a direct quote.

Right now you need to concentrate on setting up your mind and thought process instead of buying any more programs that you don’t use.  Included are a whole weeks worth of videos that must be watched in the coaching members area (If you skip one, you get a notice….).

It amounts to:  You paid me to coach you.  If you want the results you are seeking, How to Make a Living on the Internet, then do what I tell you.  You may not think these videos are necessary, but they are.  They made a big difference in what has made me succesful.  They will do the same for you.

I watched these videos several years after I started making “Big” money doing what I do.  I feel so strongly about the information included, that I went to the producer of these videos and bought rights from him so I could include them in my coaching program.

Watch every video and even download the provided audios so you can listen to them when you are doing other things like: driving to work, jogging, raking leaves or even hiking.  

Repetiton works.  

This is important. Do it or leave.  I can’t help you.
The unsubscribe button is at the bottom of all my emails.

I plan to post this review of what I am learning in my Marketing category, because there are evidently some things to learn about marketing that aren’t included in just plain old marketing This-is- how-you-do-it programs.

To be continued.  

P.S.  This is my effort to give value.  So if I have given you something worth thinking about then good or bad (I post them all except for Spam) comment and contribute your 2 cents worth!

Barry Explains How to Add Affiliate Banners to Your WordPress Blog SideBars

Ever wondered why some blogs have such nice, neat, organized side bars?  I know mine get out of hand often, when I get carried away!

Recently I went over to visit  a Facebook Friend at his site called Barry Wells’ Blog and really liked his idea of placing 4 smaller sized banner ads in one larger ad to help reduce the clutter in the  sidebar.

Considering that it is done with a Free to download software (Kompozer)  and Barry’s instructions in the video embedded below, the Price is absolutely right!

This process is new to me, and may be new to you, so I borrowed his video that tells you exactly how to do it and installed it here!   His post had several other very functional ideas to help with this side bar organization so you might like to take a read, after you find out how to make 4 ads into one!

I know that I am guilty of finding something new, can’t live without it , so into the sidebar it goes.  At one time I had two side bars on this blog,  both loaded with things!  Give away offers, things to buy and just things to go and read!

We really should put as much thought and planning into the side bar as we do the layout of the whole blog!  Coordination of  ads to blog content should be mandatory!  Also, I have reached the point where I am setting up to begin building an email list.  In the course I’m looking at by Dave Nicholson there is the mention that people must be able to see your optin  or request to join your list and not be distracted by other things on the page.

If Google  AdSense can connect ads to content and  do it while not even sitting there looking  at our Post…surely we can do it while typing in a post or page!

Our Sidebars on our blogs, should be a directory of desirable  places to go and things to check out,  Not a huge Neon Blinking  Sales Sign dragging our visitors off into the Netherlands never to return!

Watch the video below and learn how to make four affiliate ads into one banner ad on your blog sidebar.

Redoing  your sidebar should make it more productive by creating a  blog that is  neater, organized and attractive to visitors thereby increasing your subscriptions and membership.

So make some changes today to  enhance your blog!

Review Renegade Affiliate Blueprint by Chris Cole.

Chris Cole has a video that explains what Renegade Affiliate Blueprint is all about and how the Renegades operate.

The attractive thing about doing business online is that you can easily find information that you need and resources that will help you make more money using lesser effort.

However, that is not always true.

There are many marketers, big ‘gurus’ who often sell you products, training courses and yet don’t give you the full picture of all the things you need to do to set up your business.

I definitely have purchased programs from  marketers who charged me ridiculous prices for information that were lacking and incomplete.

It took me a long time to finally figure things out on my own and point my energies to begin slowly building up my business.  But I’m still not earning enough money.

I wish I had a blueprint right from the start – a blueprint that takes me step by step through the setups and pinpoint the exact things I have to do and follow to set up my business easily.  I’m still working on developing my business.
Good news for you…

I was looking through the various launches recently and noticed a very different product that caught my eye within the pile of many others. This one single product is pure gold: Renegade Affiliate Blueprint by Chris Cole.  Actually I got access to this program as a bonus  from another program so I got a discount on the purchase.

Need a Map to success?

Like me, Chris had it the hard way and worked his own way up except I’m still working.  He knows exactly what his readers need – a blueprint. I took a look at the Renegade Affiliate Blueprint package and was impressed…
The content was so precise and to the point that I fell in love with it at first read – Chris did away with all the fluff and unnecessary information that would detour you. He cuts right to the bone and takes you by the hand as he guides you through setting up your own affiliate business.

One thing to mention right here, the first video is going to be about getting started and he discusses the fact that this is a BUSINESS.  There is a somewhat long discussion about you and your qualities and your goals.

Listen to this video until you understand what he is talking about.

This is not about using this program to make instant money, it is about setting yourself up so that you are in charge of your Business and developing the correct VIEW of your business and What YOU need to do to become successful.
If you are lost on your online venture and need a map and compass back to the right track… Then, this is it.


Chris breaks down the details and explains to you properly what you need to know and tells you exactly what you need to do. With his easy to execute action steps included in the chapters, I believe that this system would work wonders for people who are looking to start up their own business.

Covered in 3 compact modules, Chris takes you through the basics of internet marketing to generating traffic and even breaks down the various types of money making strategies to give you a better idea of what kind of business would suit you best.

My favorite part is when Chris talked about the “Cash Cow Campaigns” in module 3 of his Renegade Affiliate Blueprint system.

This section was pure gold even for me. I learned a lot from his teaching and I believe you would be able to too!

Take a moment and take a look at what he has to offer, give Chris a chance to change the way you do business forever.  If you would like some help with copy writing which seems to be an eternal problem go read here.

Give yourself an opportunity to start making more money the easier way out now.

You won’t regret it.

This particular program I got as a “gift” in an email from Richard legg.  So, I’ve followed the directions for one of the ways to make money.

I copied the provided email with all my links inside….I did send it as html  which isn’t always the best thing to do …may skewere the results a litte.   But I didn’t want to take time to set up the program on my server to cloak my links so I did it inside html.

Went to a Solo Ad place and they were running a special  12,500 subscribers x 3…. so I did the credit card thing and am supposed to receive verification that the emails  are on their way withing 24 hours.

So Now it is a waiting game. 

Think I’ll make my ad money back?   Here is a little sample of what it says you can do with this program.

Complete all the steps to maximize your income!

  1. Email all your contacts
  2. Use our Tell A Friend script (can’t use they closed it because of member Spam!)
  3. Set your Email and Forum signatures
  4. Place Top Sponsor Ads
  5. Add Graphics and Banners to your site
  6. Add a “Magic Button” to your site
  7. Place a review on your Blog, and send Solo ads
  8. Use these Free traffic generators
  9. Place pop-unders and pop-exits on your site

I *urge* you to use at least steps 1-4. You can use these even if you do not
have your own website. If you do have a site, we have ready made graphics
for you to use, the HTML code is already created and embedded with your
affiliate link. Just copy the code in the boxes and paste into your pages.

Guess I’ll sign into FaceBook and Twitter and do a little damage, come back here and read and see what else I can do.

Keep a look out!  I’ll Post again.


P.S.  I did as many as I could in the time I have to work today.  Think the solo emails and this post and FaceBook and Twitter will be enough?   

Update July 20th.

Just checked the stats on the sales page….no sales today.  12,000 emails were sent on the 18th.  Have two more mailings to go.  Hope better results than this.  If I get no clicks, I’ll be sure to list the solo mail provider so we can remember where our money went!

Killer Content the Easy Way


Killer Content, a different way to fill up your site with content, or post articles on Ezine or

anywhere you want.

This is a simple to use software that searches for content using keywords, you look it over, decide what you want to use, then you can edit, spin or use as is.  

Read below, I copied part of the description of what it does.  At the bottom is a description of how to use articles to create an eBook just as easily.

All the buzz going around about Killer Content is there for a reason and the program is definitely living up to all the hype.

Killer Content is getting ready to go viral in a big way, believe me.

To say this is a full featured program for creating an online presence that will dominate any niche you are is an understatement and does a disservice to the program.

For the first time someone (Socrates Socratous the creator) has compiled an unimaginable amount of extremely high quality content and married it to a “thing” that is hard to describe.

It is a data management program, but that sounds too complicated and if I call it a word processor that sounds too simple.

Whatever title you want to give this program is up to you, but it is the most powerful tool to search and manipulate data a marketer will ever need while at the same time it is as simple as editing a document.

Let me walk you through this to give you an idea what I am talking about.

You create a project; this is as simple as clicking on the word “new project” and typing in the name of your new project.

 Then you search the list of only God knows how many super high quality articles.

You don’t just search this list randomly, although you can if you want.

You search this list by Keyword. Yes, you type in the exact keyword or phrase you want and the filter will generate a data base of thousands of articles with your specific keyword.

When you open an article you can edit and change the article any way you want, right there like you were on your favorite word processor.

With a click of a button you can even “spin” the article right from the same screen with a very powerful spinning program.

When you get the article the way you want it then you just save it to your project.

Then you just repeat the process over and over until you have as much content as you want in the project you created.

Now you go to your project to complete the process.

You can auto-post your content directly to your blog.

The auto-post program lets you control every aspect of how the content will hit your blog. You can set times and dates for each article to hit or you can just send them out all at once *the choice is yours,* but to just have a choice at all is something amazing.

Just because you are posting your content doesn’t mean the fun will stop there, you can generate an ebook in pdf format directly from your project window with a single click of a button.

Click, BOOM! An instant ebook with chapters arranged in the order of the article numbers in your project.

Once again, you have full control over the look, feel and layout of the book and it is less complicated than a word processor.

Like I said, I don’t know what kind of a title you would give a program like Killer Content, but if I ever meet Socrates I want to shake his hand.

 I highly recommend this system.
