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.

Review: Dave Nicholson Says What are the Simplest and Best Ways to Make Money Online

Well, What are Some of the Ways to Make Money Online, According to Dave Nicholson?

I can tell you upfront, from reading what Dave Nicholson has to say, a way to make money online isn’t spending your day reading blogs and flitting around Facebook and Twitter making comments…

Don’t know about you, but I put some thought into the comments I leave on others blogs and their posts that I read, Facebook and other Bloggers  Website included. For months now I’ve “played” the game of blogger.

As a result I used up all that creative energy that I formerly put into posting on my “sites” as I call them. Looking back I can see the error of my ways. No updates and a steady decline in what little traffic and authority I had built up.

Picture of World WordPress

WordPress is used all over the World

Just so you can take a look and decide for yourself, here is a small sample of some of my sites:

  • http://SkipperWorks.biz
  • http://SkipperWorks.com
  • http://ArthritisReview.net
  • http://SkippersBestBuy.com
  • http://SkippersBestBuy.biz
  • http://InternetMoneyStore.biz
  • http://sugarcontroldiet.info
  • http://SugarControlDiet.com

How to get Started All Wrong!

I didn’t set out to comment here and there and thereby gain back links to my own blog (actually just glossed over any mention of “back links” didn’t know what they were, didn’t care).

What I discovered was a treasure trove of information, offered freely and with good intentions by some blogger Super Stars (in my opinion).

I never commented except occasionally to say Thank You for some helpful information I found in someone’s post or page.

And since I was looking for some information and help in correcting some problems that started showing up on some of my “sites” started paying attention to people who knew a lot more than I did about what to do to fix things.

How I got to Where I am Today With My Help and of Course Google’s Birds

As I have noted before in another post, I started taking a John Thornhill course and acquired my very first Human comment.

This was on the “site” I was working on and the comment by none other than Sergio Felix  from http://marketingwithsergio.com/video-branding-101/ not his old Place of Business, but where he is now.

Note that Sergio has a background and education as an IT so his advice should be taken seriously!

Then followed.

After this  I  became acquainted with Barry Wells http://barry-wells.com/  who seemed to always have experience and a ready solution for many of my oops with WordPress that I was trying to solve!

Host Gator is very helpful, but as they are quick to tell you, they don’t support WordPress..talk to your website designer…(which is me, so talking to me wasn’t helpful).

How to end up without a working Blog!

  • So I continued on my merry way,
  • reading and commenting.
  • .Facebook,
  • Twitter and on a
  • growing list of favorite blogs,

but I started leaving something out:  Writing and posting on my own sites. 

This new direction, along with the continuing problems with my sites and spending hours doing repairs and endless chats with HG support,

left me without the motivation, creativity and Time needed to do what I should be doing to maintain my sites.

Where Did I Spend my Valuable Time?

http://adriennesmith.net/

http://www.dansumnerblog.com/

http://www.johnthornhill.com/blog/

I could acquire a list each day of ten or more other bloggers who had commented on these blogs with shared information that was useful to me.

But if all I’m doing is reading, learning and then commenting to show my appreciation for what I have learned….

there is no time left to implement what I have learned.

Of course Sergio and Barry were on this Must Do list (never made a list, just went where I wanted to).

For example, clicking on the above links to verify they work, I spent some of my valuable writing time reading and commenting on Dan’s post about

Here are the Top 10 Prioritizing Tips you don’t want to Miss!

http://marketingfromscratch.com/top-10-prioritising-tips-dont-want-miss/

And Adrienne’s Blog is loaded with her Thankful Thursday post which consists of  links to exciting things you need to know and put on or fix or update on  your blog….ooooh.

John Thornhill is a little behind..he was still on a rant about JVs that you promote for, but when you do a launch they somehow seem to be missing.

Well, JVs are  something to keep in mind for someone getting ready to do a launch, but I need something to launch… so it is filed in that dungeon of things I might need to know...

However John does have a pre launch check list that you can download that is Roast with the Gravy so if you are in that mode..check it out.

So since none of the above made any contribution to Making Money Online, but actually shows how to not make money or add value to your sites, lets get back to my review of Dave Nicholson’s 2008 offering.

So, How Do You Make Money Working on the Internet?

 

Dave has an h2 way down the page and this is how it reads:

What are the Simplest and Best Ways to Make Money Online

Dave Says:

I often get asked the question “how can I make money online”, the answer in short is to do a little work each day, creating, adding to and increasing your streams of income.

Great Tip, but it sounds like you already need a “stream” of income flowing!

OK, so where can you get started creating these ‘streams of income’?

Dave continued with his advice.

I have listed a few of what I consider the simplest and best ways for you to get started, don’t try to bite off more than you can chew, simply start with one method at a time and gradually increase after you feel you have completed one method to the best of your abilities.

Remember, these methods will possibly create you an income for many years to come, so keep that in mind when you are creating.

– See more at: http://www.dave-nicholson.com/blog/what-are-the-simplest-and-best-ways-to-make-money-online/#sthash.F9cHgteY.dpuf

Dave lists several methods along with a description that fills out and amplifies the information.
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Provide a Service
  • Social Networking
  • Advertising
  • Create Your Own Product

Then Dave goes on to give the Advice you need to pay attention to.

All of these methods will create a stream of income. 

He also believes it is smarter to have more than one stream of income.

But.  In order to make this work…pick one..Just ONE and try to implement it and get it going.

In other words, we are back to Focus and Prioritizing your goals, your work, your time management, your mindset…..

Straight from Dave Nicholson’s Mouth:

“Now take one of these methods at a time and try to implement it as best you can, try to do as much as you can yourself, that way you will learn more and it will save you money.”

So, what should you take away from this?

Number 1.  Don’t do what I did.
Number 2.  Do what Dave and just about any good Marketer will tell you to do.  (if you can’t remember, see above!)
What he is telling you to do, still works in 2014, 2015 just as well as it did in 2008, just update the methods a little here and there and
Most Important…Do It, because you can make money on the Internet.
From a Webinar I watched last night…45 minutes of continual talk.
The Gold?
Here it is:
to make money on the internet
all you need
1. product
2 converting page
3. targeted traffic: you need (according to the statistics) 100 real people
to look at your product
to get just 1 (one)
to buy.
So one more time
1. product
2. converting page
3. Targeted Traffic

Can you do this? 

Have you done this?
I’d like to know.   
Did any the above suggestions work for you?  Were any of them on the table when you were learning how to create an income for yourself by taking advantage of using a computer and the internet?

Share!

Now take one of these methods at a time and try to implement it as best you can, try to do as much as you can yourself, that way you will learn more and it will save you money. – See more at: http://www.dave-nicholson.com/blog/what-are-the-simplest-and-best-ways-to-make-money-online/#sthash.F9cHgteY.zG2gl7p8.dpuf

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?

How to Create a Blog Site

Still Trying to Figure Out How to Create a

Blog Site?

Starting a blog is very easy now.

Grab a host, a Domain name, install WordPress using Fantastico and you are in business!

Right.

What isn’t easy is creating a successful Blog!

I’ve looked around and searched Google for some tips on Start a Blog and have found several websites with very detailed articles that have some useful guides and information.

Since hindsight is 20 20, I wish I had known to do this before I had set up even one Blog!

All of these How to Start a Blog articles have a similar list of “Things To Do” that moves through the body of the article. The biggest difference I found in the listing of these Things to Do is that the order will vary from author to author according to their own standard of importance.

Many recent programs and articles about starting a Blog seem to be concentrating on:

  • do your market research,
  • find a busy market,
  • do your keyword research and
  • find your niche before you even buy a domain name or hosting.

I am going to do something different.

Here is a list of those important Things To Do in no particular order.

1. Know what you want from your Blog.

2. Decide who you plan to talk to on your Blog.

3. Keep your information targeted… wanted by the person you talk to.

4. Always and forever keep your Blog fresh. Update often.

5. Since this is a Blog, make it easy to use comments to connect.

6. Get found by doing your part by blogging, using social media, commenting, making friends online, you know the drill!

7. Keep up to date about using new tools, check them out, take a chance! Just keep in mind who you are talking to when choosing.

8. Get some Help. Other bloggers are very to willing to give advise, point the way or even help. Just ask. Everyone starts as a Newbie.

9. Never stop Learning. Keep yourself up-to-date (not just your Blog).

10. Final Thing to Do: Keep it personal… be yourself. If people just wanted facts, they could go to Wikipedia. Your thoughts are what matter and will make the difference between success and failure.

So far, so good. Each item on the above list is an article on its own, so I am not going to write about any of them in detail today.

What I do want to emphasize is this One Thing to Do that I learned from a marketing program and it has become immensely valuable to me.

To begin: print out this short article, get off the computer, go sit on the back porch if you are lucky enough to have one, and using an old fashioned ball point pen along with a yellow legal pad or notebook and your Things to Do print out start working.

Select a Thing to Do from the above list and write down what you know about it.

This isn’t the final exam at the end of the term. It is your personal roadmap for creating your successful Blog.

After you have done your homework (list all 10 Things to Do and jot down what you know or need to know), you can either go searching on Google or if you are interested in learning more from me then subscribe to my Author’s RSS from EzineArticles and get informed when I start publishing my own thoughts on each of the 10 Things to Do.

Can’t wait? Need more help? Visit http://SkipperWorks.info/ to get more information now. Check out the comments, good discussions going on. Want to get started with a newbie friendly resource? Go here to get a Free Report, video and mp3 that will help with site setup. http://CarartaSkipper.com/ All free. I’ll be looking to see you at Skipper Works.

Review: Bloggers RoadMap

John Thornhill did a review of Dan Sumner’s Bloggers RoadMap that was launched today.

 

 The Product looks and reads like its name:  The Bloggers Roadmap.  A quick read of the information included in the ebook scans as a complete product that stands on its own feet.  I understand there is a companion offer of step by step videos…which if you are a video person and like learning from that mode (sometimes is easier to see-do than to read-do!) will make it an over kill for creating a terrific blog.  Read below, then go check out the WSO!  Part of John’s Review is included below.

The Bloggers Roadmap – Comprehensive User Review

  • digg
  • 7

     

    Share

  • Everyone should have a blog online, it’s the most important site you will ever create bar none. It helps your readers connect with you and find out what you’re really about. If done right you can generate traffic, build your income and make massive profits while creating an army of followers.
  • First of all let’s look at the product.
  • The Bloggers Roadmap is a complete guide to setting up and profiting from your very own blog. It’s a 22,000 word, 68 page eBook and Daniel has poured everything he knows about blogs and blogging into a single guide. It’s very well written and covers everything you need to know. Here’s a sneak peek inside.

Throughout the guide Dan has added tons of ‘blog tips’ to give you more ideas and I must say these are great little additions. There is also an upsell priced at $19.99 that is a collection of video tutorials created by Dan. Again, these are well presented and walk you through the actual physical process of setting up your own blog, although the videos are not a requirement, if you feel you are a beginner in the blogging world they would probably help you get more from the product.

Who is this product for?

This product is for anyone that owns their own blog or wants to learn how to create and profit from their own blog. As this product only focuses on blogging if you don’t own a blog or never intend to then this product would be no good to you as it only covers blogging techniques. However, anyone who owns a blog or wants to learn how to create one can’t fail to benefit from this content as it covers everything you need to know in a step by step manner.

Does it work?

The fact Daniel has built a considerable blog following would make me say yes, after all if you create a product about blogging you better have a successful blog yourself, Daniel has and should you need to find out more you can check out Daniels Blog here.

 

All in all is The Bloggers Roadmap is all you need for blogging success? The answer is yes, as long as you are prepared to work at your blog, this is not a magic bullet and it does take work, but if you are prepared to work I believe this is the finest blogging product you will ever find. Blogging products are few and far between and this product is something you can refer to time and again to help you succeed in the blogging world and it comes with my highest recommendation.

John didn’t seem to happy that Daniel charged extra for the video training.  He is selling the PDF eBook for only $5.95 and it is a STAND Alone complete instructions.  So if you prefer videos, expect to pay a little more…
