An Amazing Day At Harry Potter World

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Had a great weekend away and on the Saturday went to Harry Potter World in Luton just outside London. If you ever get the chance to go it`s not to be missed but you need to book first as you have allotted time slots for your visit. It`s actually in the Warner Brothers studios where all the films were made and the main characters practically lived through most of their childhood, even being schooled there. You get to sit in the great hall and imagine all the cast sat in the exact same seats you are. The uniforms and clothing actually worn by the cast are right there in front of you. My daughter is an avid fan and couldn`t believe the sets were the actual ones used in the film. You could sit in Arthur Weasley`s flying ford anglia car and by the magic of special effects take away photos of you flying in it. Or get on the tripple decker bus, walk up to Harrys house that`s not a model but really built in bricks and mortar. Then take a stroll up Diagon Alley and visit Ollivanders wand shop. One of the highlights of the tour being a breath taking huge scale model of Hogwarts used for all the outdoor shots. Then a chance to buy various Harry Potter merchandise from the extensive gift shop. It really was an amazing day for all the family and we are already talking about a revisit at some point in the future.

Hi

Just a short post for you this time. But one that is worth tens of millions. Interested? You should be!

I have found a site that provides you with the 101 greatest headlines ever written.

Combined these headlines have generated tens of millions

in sales for the companies selling them.

What you should do is go and download this free report right away.

No need to opt in.

could you incorporate into your business?

Here’s the link below:

Hi,

if you are hopeless at typing like me you may be interested to know that if you’ve got a recent-ish Windows computer (anything from XP onwards) then it’s got a speech to text program built-in.

So there`s no need to splash out on expensive software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking or similar. Using this will help you write articles and other content lots and lots quicker than even the fastest typist.

Microsoft almost seem to go out of their way to *not* tell you
this exists for some reason. You can even control your computer with voice commands too.

To access this fabulous program just search your Windows help for “speech recognition” and it will show up. Even if you have to dig around for it.

Then spend a few minutes training it – at the least, go through
the first exercise but ideally both – it seems to repeat after
that or maybe I was getting bored.

Then try it out.

The first few times, it will probably be slower than even a
hunt-and-peck typist.

But keep with it and you will be writing content in half the
time it currently takes you, maybe even ten times faster if
you can only type with one finger like me.. LOL..

To your continued success,

Mike

***Greetings and welcome to another newsletter.

I am making some changes to the newsletter that you, my all important readers have requested.

You have been saying you want it shorter and easier to read, so no problem that`s what I have done now the main getting started video training modules are finished.

For a bit of interest I am leaving in most of the headings and it`s up to you whether or not you read them but give them a try they are usually only a few lines long and often offer good tips such as the one below for example in thought for the day.

It should only take about 5-10 minutes maximum to read from beginning to end and rest assured there will be something new to learn every week to help you with your business and a few freebies thrown in along the way whenever I can.

Look out for the heading THIS WEEK at the end of each newsletter because that`s where I will put this weeks main article so you can skip straight to it if you are ever pushed for time.

This week I am giving you part one of a free course on outsourcing at the end of the newsletter, take a look and give yourself more spare time to enjoy life.

Thought For Today
—————————————————————-

How much are you worth?

I don’t mean how much are the component parts of you worth – the water and minerals that make up your body (a bit less than a dollar for the raw materials, a bit more if you could sell your working parts).

I mean how much does it say on the invisible price tag that you have hung around your neck.

$10 an hour? $100? $1000?

You are worth exactly as much as you believe you are worth.

My friend David is a joiner. He makes stuff out of wood. Recently he was asked to price up a job that he really didn’t want. Rather than turn it down, he simply double his normal rates in the hope that the customer would be put off.

The next day they were on the phone asking him how soon he could start.

THAT made David rethink how much he was worth!

Another friend (also called David, coincidentally) is a central heating installer. He told me that he normally quoted £800 to fit a new boiler, but recently has been losing jobs to other companies who charge much more.

When he started asking why he’d lost the job, the customers told him that they figured the more expensive companies would do a better job.

Dave immediately added £1000 to his standard price and has been booked solid with work ever since.

Mike is a management consultant. He recently decided to increase his hourly rate from £200 to £800. He is still billing exactly the same number of hours but his income has quadrupled – and he reports that his clients are now FAR more likely to do as he recommends.

It happens all around us. People everywhere are undervaluing their worth because they put their own value on themselves instead of the value that their clients and customers would put on them.

Take a look at the value that YOU put on yourself.

Look harder.

Now, whatever that value is, increase it. Live with it. Let that new value sink in to your subconscious.

Then go out into the world and show them what you’re worth.

In an age where dress codes are becoming more relaxed, be very careful that you don’t cross the line from ‘casual’ to ‘insulting’. In the ebb and flow of business relationships, respect is very important to maintain.

The best, and most subtle way of demonstrating respect for your boss, your client and yourself, is to always take care about your appearance.

Are you tired of trying to do everything yourself in your business?
You are creating your own products, setting up your own websites, trying to get web traffic, and managing your own affiliate program. Pfshew! No wonder you’re going crazy.

Successful business owners, do NOT do everything themselves. Find out how you can begin to outsource parts of your business — where to find people and how to be able to afford their help.

Your Most Common Outsourcing Questions Answered
Grow Your Business with Less of a Workload

In Today’s Lesson…

What is Outsourcing Anyway?
____________________________________________
Hello and welcome to the Outsourcing Explained Course.

Over the next few issues my goal is to help you create a more profitable and less stressful business. Sounds good doesn’t it?
So, what are we waiting for?

Let’s get started. We both know that the best place to start is at the beginning, of course. Today we’re going to find out exactly what outsourcing is.

Outsourcing is the act of contracting out business tasks to someone else for completion. Outsourcing is a way for business owners, like you, to:
• Get more done in your business.
• Save time and money.
• And more…

There’s a common misconception about outsourcing that needs to be cleared up while we’re on the subject. Many think that outsourcing involves sending work to people in other countries who work for pennies and perform the work below standard.

That’s not what we’re talking about here. There are ways to outsource work to those who are professionals in their respective fields and will work to give you above par results – wherever they live.

There are a variety of tasks that you can outsource in your online business and we’re going to discuss those later in the course, but for now start thinking about everything you do in your business. Do you handle it all yourself?

If so, you’re working yourself way too hard. Or as Rich Schefren says “You’re working for a lunatic”.

Stop spinning your wheels and stop living for your business. If you’re feeling overworked and underpaid, then you need to sit down with your boss (yourself) and give yourself a good talking to.

Believe it or not, those who do every single thing in their business are actually stalling their business from growth. It’s time to create a lucrative business without working yourself so hard.

Stick around and I’ll show you how.

Next week, we’ll cover… “The Benefits of Outsourcing”

So until next week, take care.

To Your Continued Success

Greeting and welcome to this week’s newsletter.

This is a milestone of sorts as it provides the last of the training videos on starting your online business.

If you have been following and implementing the training over the last few months you should have everything you need to get cracking and make your first sales and start building that all important list.

List building is covered in this week’s training video to get you started ASAP.

If you want some more in depth video training I can recommend a low cost ($10) training package that as usual comes with PLR rights so you can watch it and learn from it and then add it to your sales funnel and get your money back many times over.

Time Management

—————————————————————-

If you are serious about your business and you ought to be, you need to manage your time better. If you have a full time job I know it`s hard to get motivated after a hard day at work, you just want to crash down on the sofa and watch tv and relax, not spend time on your computer working. Well this is what separates the men from the boys so to speak.

Unless you make a commitment to change your life and stick to it nothing will ever change, think of it this way, the work you do today is to make sure you don`t have to work tomorrow. You can still live your life and build your business as well, here are a few tips to help you manage your time better.

1) Try to find a spare room if you have one or at least a quiet corner that is free from distraction to work in.

2) Set yourself specific hours to work in. If you only work when you think you have the time you will always find some reason why you are too busy, but by setting say one or two hours per evening and sticking to it you will get far more work done.

3) Focus on one task at a time and follow it through to completion. Jumping from one task to another without finishing any is very counter- productive as you keep having to catch up with where you were up to on each task before you can get started again.

Thought For Today
—————————————————————-

Homer Simpson has a saying: ‘If a thing’s hard to do then it probably isn’t worth doing.’

If you don’t know who Homer is, then all I can say is that whatever he says, you should do the complete opposite.

Yet, those silly words of his are so often the real meaning behind our actions. We try, fail and give up.

Why have we grown up to be that way? Kids don’t have that defeatist attitude. Kids fail to swim for months before they manage to say afloat. Kids often even hurt themselves when they fail to ride their bike the first or second or third time. But they don’t say, ‘It’s too hard so I’ll give up.’

Kids WANT to succeed and they know deep down that they WILL if they keep on trying to do the hard things long enough.

How many of us adults could sit a math exam? It would be MUCH too hard, right?

But thousands of kids do it all the time. And most of them succeed!

There are all kinds of psycho-babble reasons why we learn to expect failure as we grow up, but none of them really count for anything.

I believe 110% that we can unlearn that stupid self- defeating belief. All it takes is a little bravery.

Have a go.

It doesn’t matter if you fall off your bike or sink to the bottom of the pool. Look around you – other people are succeeding, so you know it CAN be done.

All you have to do is keep on trying and pretty soon it won’t be hard anymore. And it WILL be worth doing.

Call someone up just to say hello.

Business is far too calculated these days. If you phone someone – and don’t have an ulterior motive – you will be remembered. And in a good way.

I hope you have really made use of all my free training as it did take some time to set up. If you have not managed to keep up don`t worry it`s not a race and the training videos are not going anywhere.

If you have not got started yet there has never been a better time and you should ask yourself what am I waiting for and when will it be the right time.

Do yourself a favor and don`t keep buying everything that lands in your inbox and never getting started.

No matter what the gurus say there is no such thing as instant success, some work and commitment is always required to make anything work or everyone would be doing it.

Keep a look out for my weekly newsletter and emails and from time to time I will create more video training.

If you have any questions just email me at the address at the end of this newsletter, good luck and get started.

 

If you are interested in avoiding all the start-up errors and want a short cut to my training, there is a comprehensive step by step plan to take you from where you are now to where you want to be with your own online business much quicker than my training will allow.

 

Do you want to learn more, if so who do you listen to?
Well who you listen to is someone who is actually doing it, not just talking about it.

Someone who has been making money consistently online for over 10 years.

Someone who has created hundreds of products and made millions of dollars, two of the internet good guys.

I have been mentored and worked personally with these two guys and can tell you they know what they are talking about.

They have created a simple step by step blueprint you can copy right now to create your own work from home internet business in super quick time.

It`s ideal for newcomers, and the more experienced, to help you build your profitable home business. It helps you get to where you want to be, in an easy to follow step by step blueprint, your guide through the internet jungle if you will.

• Here are just a few things you will learn:
• How to start with and from nothing.
• How to grow a mailing list starting from scratch, zero, no subscribers.
• How to generate sales without any big name guru friends.
• How to create your own products without writing a single word.
• How to set everything up even if you’re not a technical ‘whiz kid’.
• How to advertise and market your business without a massive budget and in most cases WITHOUT spending any money.
• How to overcome the new persons barriers to wealth.
• How to make money online even if you haven’t made a penny so far.

 

What you need to realize is that all internet marketing success stories started exactly where you stand now.

They didn’t have any of those things…including me, but I didn’t let it stop me and neither should you.

Every journey no matter how long begins with just one step and that is where you are now, you just need to be shown the right path.

Unfortunately there are a lot of so called gurus out there who don’t want you to find this path because then you won’t need to continually buy their products.

They want to keep you in the dark and confuse you with all the different products out there so they can keep selling you the next shiny object that will deliver push button success.

The only way you can succeed online is to break out of this mentality and concentrate on a proven system.

Like anything else you do need knowledge to get started, you wouldn’t get into a car for the first time and expect to be able to drive would you.

You would pay for lessons from someone who knows how to drive, well internet is no different. You need to invest in yourself to learn how to do things the right way using a proven system that works and you can understand, and stick at it until you succeed.

That my friend is the secret of being successful at anything. Don’t give up at the first hurdle and buy the next shiny object that lands in your inbox and the next.

Stick with it and never give up. That’s why 99% of would be marketers fail, follow this procedure above and don’t give up and success will be yours.

You have chosen the right business to be in, with low start up costs and big profits you just need to do it the right way, so click the link below and take a look at something that ticks all the right boxes from someone who has been there and got the tee shirt as they say.

If you are serious about making money online then this is definitely for you. I personally recommend this as a great starting point on the road to your internet business success check it out below with no obligation, and good luck.

***Starting Point Weekly
—————————————————————-

Greetings and welcome to issue 11.

Today I am going to talk to you some more on motivation. Every now and again I am going to try and bring you a short article or video or both to try and keep you motivated sometimes by reminding you of the consequences of you not taking action such as today or the rewards of taking action and seeing your dreams come to fruition.

I know at this point in time it may be difficult to believe you can do this but believe me my friend you can. There are millions of people throughout the world, myself included making regular money from the internet so why can`t you.

They are just ordinary people like you who all started from where you are now with no list or products or contacts but they all persevered until they achieved success.

As the old Chinese proverb says “even the longest journey begins with a single step”, so follow the steps I am giving you one step at a time and you surly will achieve the success you desire.

Click here to watch an amazing short video of an athlete who just wouldn’t quit even though he couldn’t win, he still wouldn’t be beaten and it turned him into a hero with the crowd, very moving stuff.

Thought For Today
—————————————————————-

When you speak, do you listen?

And when others speak, do you hear?

There is a voice inside your head that loves to interrupt. It chimes in all the time – it cuts across other people when they speak to you and gets in the way when you speak to them, making you forget your thread and hum and haw.

Today’s thought is a simple technique that lets you silence that voice so that you can start to really hear and listen.

Try this out today – and practice it whenever you can. It seems awkward at first, but you’ll soon see how powerful it can be.

For really listening to what other people are saying to you, repeat their words inside your head AS THEY SAY THEM.

This does two things. It makes sure that you have really heard what they are saying, and it blocks your inner voice from taking you on sidetracks.

When you are speaking, do the same thing – echo the words you utter inside your own head. This makes you concentrate on the flow of your own words better and prevents many of the irritating filler words (um, eh, ah, like, y’know) from popping out.

As soon as you start to speak more fluently, without all the fillers cluttering up your meaning, people will start to respond to what you say rather than the way you say it.

Give it ah a try um, you’ll like soon see ah that it, you know, works um wonders in your er communications.

Michel de Montaigne said,

“There is as much difference between us and ourselves as between us and others.”

————————————————————–
Achieving Your Goals
————————————————————–

Every goal, ambition, dream or target that you have in your life comes ready-made with a fixed amount of energy attached to it.

Once that pre-fixed energy is gone, you lapse into a state of flux: you neither have the power to carry on towards your target, nor do you have the will to forget the whole thing.

The result: procrastination. All you can do is think of other things that you’d rather be doing.

But, that unfinished task acts like a drain on the energy attached to all the other things that you do instead.

Each task’s energy CAN be boosted, but only if it is topped up before it runs empty.

The trick is to either plan your jobs so that you finish each one while its energy level is still sufficient to keep you going, or to deliberately stop before the tank runs empty – so that your enthusiasm can supply the needed fuel for you to start again another day.

Think of it like a car. All the time there is gas in the tank, you can go somewhere and get things done. If the needle says that the tank is running low, you can get to a gas station and fill up.

But if you ignore that needle and allow the tank to run dry, you grind to a halt. Odds are that you will come to a full-stop in the most inconvenient place possible, and getting more gas will be a major challenge.

A Moment’s Inspiration
—————————————————————-

Perception is the spark that often starts us on the road to success. We perceive that it possible.

Perspiration is the oil that keeps our wheels turning even when they start to seize up.

Persistence is the fuel that keeps out engine burning even when the journey seems impossible.

Performance is the wheel that steers our course – as long as we can perform the correct actions, our route will be true.

Personal is our destination. Only we can truly say to where we are journeying.

Perhaps you agree. That would be perfect.

————————————————————–
Paid Traffic
————————————————————–

1. Pay Per Click (PPC)
A few years ago you could use Adwords (Google’s PPC service) to buy traffic at incredibly cheap rates like $0.05 per click.

People made a lot of money by running PPC campaigns and sending it directly to the sales pages of affiliate offers (such as those on Clickbank) or to CPA offers (where you get paid when a visitor that you send performs a specific action such as filling out a form or requesting a consultation).

Alas, those days are long gone: Google is MUCH more expensive these days and is very strict about what kind of web pages you can send people to.

However, there are other non-Google options which can provide you with very cheap traffic. Infolinks.com and 7search.com are two such platforms.

They are not perfect (what is really?) but I recommend you investigate them as cheap traffic is possible if you are willing to invest some time in tweaking your campaigns.

Facebook is another popular platform of course although I haven’t tried this myself (yet!).

Solo Ads
This is where you pay another market to promote your squeeze page to their list.

You can find opportunities through services like the Warrior Forum (Joint Venture section), approaching marketers directly via email or using mailing list finders such as lists.nextmark.com. or my favorite one I always use for new lists is Safeswaps.com

This is one of the fastest ways to build your list, especially if you are starting from zero and need an initial “kick start”! I will show you a video next week of one of my own personal safeswaps campaigns.

Adswaps
The only thing is that you shouldn’t get too carried away with them because if you do adswaps all the time then your subscribers will end up on multiple lists and be less attentive to your emails. So your open rates will decline and ultimately your list will just die!

Banners
This is where you pay to put a banner (which is like a small advert for your site or product) on other sites to drive traffic to your site or offer.

You can get a banner designed cheaply on Fiverr.com and then get a company such as bannersboker.com to place your banner for you on high traffic sites.

I could go on and on and there are a multitude of traffic strategies out there. But the ones above work and they will work for you to if you’re willing to put in some time and effort and a little money.

In case you missed it in last weeks edition here is a free book on traffic generation, just click here to download it.

Also here is the link again to a very low cost traffic generation video course ( less than $10 ) that comes with PLR rights so you can sell it to your customers and recoup the cost on your first sale.

It will also become a useful part of your sales funnel and help build trust with your future subscribers.

This Week’s Quick Tip
—————————————————————-

Never rely on memory alone. It is either fleeting, or deceiving.

In a normal business environment, dozens of decisions are made each day – many of them in totally inappropriate places. The water cooler, the corridor, the restroom.

Will you remember every decision and action point? Will the other person?

Make sure that every decision that requires input from you (even if that input is no further action) is immediately documented.

Keep a small notepad in your pocket and jot down the place, time and action point. Then, as soon as is practical, fire off a quick email to the other party to confirm the conversation.

You will look far more professional and you will suffer far less from the ‘I said, you said’ misunderstandings.

The A-Z Of The Internet

K is for keywords
A keyword is a word you would type into a search engine or web site when searching for information or a product. When you have a few words together then it becomes known as a keyword phrase.

For example you go to ebay and type in the keyword shoes, that keyword will need to be included in the sellers advert or their product will not show up when someone types in that word into the search bar.

Even better if you can be more specific, such as mens shoes or ladies slippers, it all helps you to be found by the person searching for that particular product.

It’s the same with the search engines, if you are selling a product about, say list building.

Ideally your sales page should contain the keywords list building as many times as possible without it affecting the way the sales page reads.

It should also contain similar keywords that are related to the product. Even better try to put the keywords list building into the domain name of the site to help you rank well in the search engines.

Well that’s it for another week, don’t forget there are dozens of ways to get traffic to your site, but you should just pick 2 or 3 to concentrate on or you will find it all becomes all too much for you and you will give up. Master 1 or 2 first and then try some more and before long you will be a traffic master yourself.

Here is that link again to a very low cost traffic generation video course ( less than $10 ) that comes with PLR rights so you can sell it to your customers and recoup the cost on your first sale.

It will also become a useful part of your sales funnel and help build trust with your future subscribers.

Until next week take care and don`t forget to watch the video training below.

Starting Point Weekly Issue 9

***Starting Point Weekly

—————————————————————-

Greetings and welcome to issue 9.

In this week’s video training, you will be getting a paypal account and integrating it into your site and then you should be ready to start getting subscribers and making some sales. You will also need a series of autoresponder messages to build a relationship with your new subscribers.

Research has shown it typically takes around 7 messages to ease your potential customers into trusting you and making that first purchase. That doesn`t mean nobody will buy straight away but the majority won`t.

But it is still my intention to try and sell a low cost high value product straight off the bat as this will help to subsidise your advertising costs to get the subscribers in the first place. Don`t be frightened by costs, they will be small. I will also show you several ways of getting subscribers for free but it depends on the speed you want to build your list.

Free traffic will take much longer and much more effort to build your list but it depends on your budget and your spare time. Having tried both if I had my time again I would concentrate on paid traffic at least at first to give your list a kick start and boost your confidence by getting your first sale under your belt.

Thought For Today

—————————————————————-

A very quick thought for today, but one that can make a big difference to you.

When you make your to-do list for this week (please say that you ARE going to make one!) add an extra column on the side.

This column is the one for other people to do.

One of the hardest success secrets to learn is that nobody gets there all on their own. The people at the top of the tree got there because they learned that some things are best done by them, and some things aren’t.

You ‘they-do’ column is where you put all the jobs that can and should be delegated. Don’t beat yourself up about it. If it can be efficiently passed on, do it without guilt.

By writing it down in your ‘they-do’ column you achieve two things: you make the act of delegation official in your mind, and you provide yourself with a reminder of who is now responsible, and when by. You are now not responsible for the doing, but you ARE responsible for checking that it is done, and done well.

A good delegator is not an abdicator. You are not simply moving things off of your desk for the sake of it. Your role should be to facilitate that the work gets done by the most efficient means.

Your ‘they-do’ list is a very powerful tool. Use it.

Some Useful Information Part 2

—————————————————————————-

Carrying on from last week if you remember I promised to help you clear all the toolbars clogging up the top of your pc and just keep the one you want. If you are using the firefox browser like me, go to your browser screen and you left click on the orange firefox button in the top left of your screen above the toolbar.

Then you should see add-ons on the right of the drop down menu with a blue jigsaw piece next to it. Left click on add- ons and on the next screen click on Extensions on the left next to the jigsaw again.

Then just click the remove button on the right for all the tool bars and clutter you don’t want to keep and your PC is back to its original state, clutter free.

A Moment’s Inspiration

—————————————————————-

Richard Wiseman, in his book ‘Did You Spot the Gorilla’ (a highly recommended paperback about research into luck) tells a great story.

He ran an experiment where he asked people to sit down with a newspaper and count the number of photographs inside.

Half way through the paper was a half-page ad that said in big type, ‘Win £100 by telling the experimenter that you have seen this.’

Previous to the ‘experiment’ all the subjects had been asked to rate themselves on a luckiness scale.

Most of the people who thought themselves lucky spotted the ad and won the money.

Most of the people who felt unlucky didn’t see the ad.

Their conclusion is that both groups had the same opportunity, but the unlucky ones were focused on the task in hand so much that they could see opportunity when it was staring them in the face. The lucky people, even though they still managed to count photographs perfectly well, maintained a wider vision that allowed them to grab at unexpected chances.

My conclusion is this:

‘If you want to get lucky, take off your blindfold.’

The A-Z Of Internet Marketing
—————————————————————————-

I is for internet

The history of the Internet began with the development of electronic computers in the 1950s. This began with point-to-point communication between mainframe computers and terminals. But there is a misunderstanding between many people that the internet is the same as the world wide web.

The world wide web which is what the www. means at the start of all your web addresses, was developed much later and launched in December 1990 by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau which quickly grew into today’s platform.

I find it amazing how much it has changed our lives and will continue to do so as it evolves. Just 22 years ago it didn’t exist and most people didn’t own a PC let alone know what to do with one.

Now children as young as two are playing on them and mobile phones and tablets are now doing the same job, better and quicker than those early computers that cost a fortune and had a memory hundreds of times smaller than your phones memory card.

It really started to explode as we moved away from the slow and expensive dial up modems and moved to much quicker and cheaper broadband. I wonder where we will be in another 20 years, I suppose our grand children will laugh at our technology as I am sure the future will have changed dramatically again by then.

This Week’s Quick Tip

—————————————————————-

Do you have limiting beliefs?

Of course you do! We all do. And almost everyone is false.

Successful people always assume they CAN do something and then set out to prove it.

Everybody else assumes they CAN’T do something and then set out to prove it.

Just for today, put your limiting beliefs to one side. Let your mind do a 180-degree flip and see the world through the eyes of a super-success.

I have a saying in my seminars:

“Can you learn to learn you can?”

Try saying that backwards and you’ll get the idea.

My favourite fruit is the banana, and I have always been fascinated to see great columns of them growing on their huge palm-like trees.

So it has come as a shock to learn that I’ve been wrong all these years:

Bananas are not fruits – they are berries.

Banana trees are not trees – they are the world’s largest herb, closely related to the lily.

We have come to the end of another newsletter take some time to think about traffic for next week. How much time can you realistically devote to the free ways of getting traffic that we will be discussing next week, or would you rather get much quicker results by spending a little money. I will show you both methods and let you decide for yourself, so until then take care and have a good week.
