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

***Greetings, and welcome back, hope you had a great week. I start off with an apology, I received an email from a reader, Terry from Stafford in the UK who wrote “it’s all very well you beating me over the head to start a business but what if I don’t want to.

I started reading this newsletter more for entertainment and curiosity really but have found learning about internet marketing quite interesting but I am not sure it’s a road I want to go down at present so give us the great undecided a break”.

Again I apologise, as a reader of Starting Point you don`t have to start your own business or indeed do anything you don`t want to, I will be quite happy for you to be one of my valued readers, and I do value you.

The comments I made and will continue to make are for those of you who are, or think they are ready to try something but lack the get up and go or the means to get started, but I don`t value any other readers less. I hope that clears things up Terry.

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

Get in the elevator.

There is a movie called ‘Get Shorty’. You may have heard of it.

In it there is a scene with John Travolta (playing a loan shark who want to get into the movies) and Gene Hackman (playing a third-rate Hollywood producer who is desperate to raise money for his favourite script.)

Hackman’s character wants to interest a big-name actor in the lead part and tells Travolta about how he is going to approach the actor’s psychotherapist’s personal trainer.

Travolta, whose character is bemused at the roundabout ways that Hollywood people operate says, “That’s the difference between you and me. If I want something from someone, I ask them straight out.”

How many times do we all act like third-rate Hollywood producers – skirting round the sides of problems, dealing through middle-men, and never really addressing the heart of the issue?

If you are in business, I bet you will do just that today.

How about taking a stand and elevating your problem higher to begin with.

Very often, the people at the top of departments and organizations have no idea about the real problems that are going on – and receiving your call may be just the wake up that they need.

It is lonely at the top – but it is even lonelier if nobody talks to you!

So today, stop messing around with agents, psychoanalysts and personal trainers (to continue the example), get in the elevator and take your problems up to the top floor.

—————————————————————-
*** Blueprint To Success
—————————————————————-

Moving on, I am committed to helping you achieve success so please watch the video training lessons each week I am sure you will find them very interesting.

I will show you the quickest cheapest and easiest way to start your own business selling other peoples products for up to 75% commission using several sites including clickbank.com or even your own if you have one.

So how to get started, I am going to break this down into bite sized pieces each week with just a few small tasks to do before next week, call it homework if you like. Although there is nothing stopping you reading it all and jumping ahead straight away if you like, it’s up to you.

I just find you are more likely to carry out a small task each week than be overwhelmed with the whole thing.

I know for some of you it is perhaps too basic but I want to cover everything from the beginner upwards so if you are more advanced please bear with me it will be worthwhile in the long term as we come to a detailed step by step plan.

Take a moment to pause in your busy life and bring to mind these things:

A beautiful sunset over a deep blue sea.

A white-capped mountain range.

A rose.

The look on an old lady’s face when she first sees her grandchild.

The tears an athlete sheds when their national anthem plays.

How did each one of those things make you feel, deep down inside?

Now make your own list.

It’s true, isn’t it: the best things in life are free.

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

D is for domain name
A domain name is for example www.google.com Google is the domain name. My domain name for this newsletter is www.startingpointweekly.com starting point weekly is the domain name I registered.

You register a domain name at sites such as dreamhost, or godaddy or hostgator, but there are thousands more. In my experience if you are going to require hosting which is basically renting a piece of cyberspace to have your own site on then its better and easier to use the same company for both.

At some point you will want your own site and choosing the right domain name for your site is of the utmost importance to get the best search engine rankings.

You should use the google keyword tool to find the keywords people in your niche are searching for and use them in your domain name. For example if you are in the make money online niche you would want ideally something like www.makemoneyonline.com incorporating some of the most searched for keywords in your niche.

If the keywords are not available as a domain because they are already registered as is most certainly the case with make money online you just have to keep trying different keywords or variations of those words until you find one that’s available.

I will go into this a lot more in the training video at the end of this newsletter and show you a great free tool to help you come up with some suggestions you would never have dreamed of.

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

Don’t allow yourself to become a victim to negative thoughts. They will surely destroy you.

Your mind is so powerful that it will work to make every thought, when repeated often enough, come true. When you constantly see the downside of everything, that is exactly what you will get.

Karl Wallenda, the famous high-wire performer, fell to his death in 1978. His wife said afterwards, “All Karl thought about for three months prior to it was falling. It seemed to me he put all his energies into ‘not falling’, rather than walking the tightrope.”

Life is like a tightrope. Keep your eyes up and your mind focused on the positive outcome and you’ll avoid many of the pitfalls along the way.

*** Starting Point Weekly

—————————————————————-

 

 

***Greetings, I hope you had a good week and are ready for some money making ideas. Did you read last weeks newsletter and more importantly have you taken any action on it. Unfortunately it’s all too easy to make excuses on why we haven`t started yet, because secretly we fear change. Deep down we don`t want to move outside our own comfort zone so come up with excuses to make ourselves feel better, which leads on nicely to the next part of the newsletter.

 

—————————————————————

 *** When Is The Right Time To Get Started

—————————————————————-

 

The simple answer to that my friend is now!!!

 

The thing that stops most people getting started is the excuse that they are not ready, they just need to learn a bit more, or to decide on a niche, or polish or tweak the project they are working on at present.

Another one is the time is not right, due to the recession nobody has any money to spend. Well, let me tell you all these are just subconscious excuses not to get started, let’s look at them one by one.

First, there will always be a reason why you are not ready and the time isn`t right, so when will it be, the simple answer is never, so just do it.

You need to learn a bit more, well, let me tell you that you will never know everything and you will be constantly learning new things in this ever changing market so just get on with it.

You need to decide on a niche, no problem just follow my training and pick one, job done. Don`t agonise over it, if you get it wrong all you have lost is a little time and you will learn valuable lessons to help you get it right next time.

I am working on a project that just needs tweaking, my first question to you is how long have you been tweaking it? If you are not careful you will use that as an excuse and never finish it, just get it something like and get it out there, your customers will be the best judge of if it needs any more tweaking and do it as necessary.

Finally nobody has any spare cash due to the present economic climate. This is total rubbish; the current climate actually works in your favour. As earning are squeezed and people lose their jobs, they are looking to find other ways of saving money by doing things themselves that they might have paid someone else to do previously.

Or alternatively they are looking for ways to start their own business to earn some extra full or time money, and again this is where you come in with your products to give them what they want.

Do you see all of these are excuses created by your subconscious mind to keep you within your comfort zone. Your subconscious mind, (and this is scientifically proven) is only happy in a state of flux, and is only interested in things staying the same.

As soon as you even think about moving out of your comfort zone to try something new, alarms go off in your head and chemicals are released to create fear and doubt so you will give up and return to your comfort zone so everyone can be happy again.

This is a fact, so it is not really your fault if you give up, but what you must do is fight it or nothing will ever change in your life which is just what your subconscious wants but it shouldn`t be what you want. If you are not happy with your lot then make a decision today to overcome your doubts and fears and get started. As you have already seen there is no better time.

Someone once asked me have they missed the boat with internet marketing, and my reply was the boat hasn`t even left the harbour yet. Internet marketing will be around as long as people are hungry for information.

I know you can search out a lot of it yourself for free, but humans are a lazy lot and people will always be willing to pay for someone else to do the searching and bring all the information together in one easy download or cd or dvd for them and that is where you and I clean up.

Stick with me and I will help you get started as easily and as cheaply as possible, I will give you my step weekly newsletter and video training to download to get you started at once.  So go one, no more excuses, get started today.

 

—————————————————————-

*** Thought For Today

—————————————————————-

 

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.

William Shakespeare wrote,

 

“Things won are done, joy’s soul lies in the doing.”

 

 

—————————————————————-

*** A Moment’s Inspiration

—————————————————————-

 

 

This often quoted passage by Charles Swindoll is one of those basic truths that should be pinned to everyone’s wall.

 

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gifted ability, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home.

 

The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace from that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing that we can do is play on the one string that we have and this string is, Attitude. I am convinced that life is ten percent what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it. And so it is with you….We are in charge of our Attitudes.”

 

 

—————————————————————-

*** A-Z Of Internet Marketing

—————————————————————-

 

C is for content

 

Content is king, at least in Google’s eyes and the life blood of any site, without content your site would be empty and there would be no point in visiting it. But you can`t just put up any old content and hope to get visitors; you need quality content that will be of use to your visitors.

You can buy PLR content such as articles, but ideally these need rewriting to make them original as PlR articles will have been used by potentially thousands of other sites so Google will not see these as being a reason to raise you up the search engines and maybe even penalise you for having duplicate content on your site, although in my experience this is not usually the case.

But if you want your content to help with your search engine ranking it needs to be original and of good quality. This means either create it from scratch yourself, or rewrite PlR articles you have the rights to use, or go to article directories and find good quality articles on your subject and use them for ideas, but without copying them as this would be plagiarism which is strictly forbidden and could get you in a lot of trouble.

There is another option which is my preferred route and that is to either pay someone to have PLR articles rewritten for you so you don`t need to do any research or pay them to create brand new articles from scratch but this would be more expensive as there is obviously more work involved.

If you were to get someone to write them for you there are a number of sites such as freelancer, elance, and even fiverr where it is possible to get articles written or rewritten for as little as $1 each just be aware there is a minimum spend of $30 with freelancer and $50 with elance and $5 with fiverr.

So you would order 30 articles with freelancer if you only wanted to pay a dollar each and wait for writers to bid on your project, and then accept the bid you are happiest with in terms of price and feedback.

I am including a link to two short videos I have made that will quickly show you how freelancing works if you are thinking of going down that route which I can highly recommend as I don`t know about you but I would far rather spend $30 and get 30 articles done within a few days than spend weeks trying to do them myself, but that`s just me at the end of the day it`s your call depending on your time and budget and love of writing.

   *** This Week’s Quick Tip

—————————————————————-

 

 

How is your confidence?

 

If you’re like most people, your confidence quotient could do with a bit of a boost. Here are three things you can do right away to do just that:

 

1. Learn to put the past in its place. The past may be gone, but it can leave a scar. It is okay to remember, but fatal to dwell. Learn from the past, live in the present and plan for the future.

 

2. Don’t believe negative people. We are all surrounded by two types of people – those who hold us up, and those who push us down. The negative ones are forever trying to tell us that we can’t do things, but what they really mean is THEY can’t. Nobody has the right to tell you what you can or can’t do – that is for you to decide. Decide to be positive!

 

3. Celebrate your successes. Make a big thing of them – if only in your mind. Reward yourself for doing well and pretty soon it will come naturally.

India is the world’s largest democracy.

 

The Indian election in 1984 was the largest of any country with over 379,000,000 voters eligible to vote at over 480,000 polling stations.

 

The largest employer in the world is the Indian railway system. It employs over 1.6 million people.

 

Almost 3 billion movie tickets are sold in India every year, and Bollywood produces over 800 movies a year to supply the demand (about double the output of Hollywood).

I hope you are getting something really useful out of this newsletter and I make no excuses for constantly beating you over the head about your ability to take action. If you have already done so I commend you, if not shame on you. Each week I am giving you the tools to change your life, I can`t do it for you that is up to you.

But I ask you, and be honest with yourself here it`s just between the two of us, if the time is not right to get started now when will it be. The hardest part of getting started is making the decision to start and sticking to it, and with my help you will get there, so what are you waiting for.

Don’t forget to watch the training video below before next week and I will talk you through getting started with it. Until next week take care and be lucky.

Greetings

and a very warm Welcome back, I do hope you enjoyed last weeks launch newsletter. If you missed it for any reason, you can catch up at the Starting Point newsletter archive located under Starting Point WeeklyNewsletter archive in the categories section of this blog on the right of the page as with all our back issues.

 

Have you had a chance to look at last weeks free download Think And Grow Rich yet.  This is an awesome book that has sold over 30,000,000 copies and has been read and used by just about every successful person in our times. If you haven`t read it find the time and give it a look.

 

—————————————————————-

What do you want?

—————————————————————-

 

 

This week I thought I would get you thinking about what it is you want from life. What part of your life would you like to improve, think about it for a moment.

What

part of your life isn`t going the way you had hoped and what are you prepared to do about it. You see it`s no use going through life moaning about things if you are

 

not prepared to take action yourself to change things. Nothing is set in stone, with a little effort you can change anything in your life you just need to ready for

 

the challenge ahead. Take a piece of paper now and write down the biggest thing in your life you want to change right now, be it more money, better job, house, car, to

 

become self employed, work from home, you decide. Once you have decided you then need to plan how to get there, lets say for instance you want extra income and in

 

these trying times who doesn`t you need to think about how you are going to get it. Can you get a better job or promotion or work longer hours. Is your partner working

 

is so can they work more hours or get a job if they are not working. Failing that can you reduce your monthly out goings even slightly to give you more spare cash, you

 

see there are more ways than you think of getting more money. Have you ever thought of selling your unwanted items on ebay or even buying from a wholesaler to resell

 

on ebay for a profit. Before you dismiss the idea think about why you can`t do this, there are millions of people making a full and part time living on ebay. It

 

doesn`t involve giving up your job, at least until you are making enough to quit if that is your aim, and you can start with just a few dollars worth of stock and

 

perhapes make just a little money for a special treat yourself and once you see it can be done build on that. Alternatively, just sell your unwanted items and use the money to start your own internet marketing business, I will be helping you with that next week. Put it this way, only you can change your life, if you

 

take no action how can anything ever change. To help you out if you think this may be for you I am including a free guide to using ebay, why not download it and see

 

what you think, then look around your house, loft and garage and you will be amazed at some of the things you have lying around that you no longer need. Then gather

 

them up, photograph them and put them on ebay you have nothing to lose and it may be the start of a whole new life.  Download your report here.

 

 

—————————————————————-

Thought For Today

—————————————————————-

 

 

Become a child.

 

Children learn because they are always asking questions. Why this, how that, where is it, who did it, what can I?

 

Adults learn to NOT ask too many questions – and therein lies the problem.

 

By suppressing our inbuilt curiosity, we suppress our creativity as well.

 

Try this exercise.

 

Next time you walk along a street with shops in it, look in the windows. But unlike the way you usually do it, look with a question in mind: “why did they do that?”

 

And then worry about the answer!

 

Only by solving the question for yourself can you move on to the next one – make a game of it!

 

When you’re done with shops, move on to newspaper ads.

 

“Why did they do that?” “How is this supposed to make me feel?” “What would I have done to make that better?” “Who are they directing this message to?”

 

When the questioning habit gets fixed in your brain, along with it will come a massive boost in your creativity, general problem-solving abilities and love of life.

 

The world is a pretty spectacular place when you learn to see it in the full colour hue that endless questions paint it with.

Lao Tzu said, “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.”

 

What did he mean by kindness?

 

Quite simply, he was referring to positivity.

 

Make a list of all the positive words you can think of, keep that list with you to add to all the time, and make a commitment to yourself to incorporate as many of

 

those words into your speech and thoughts as you can every day.

 

In no time at all you will be more confident and profound.

 

And all because of a few little words.

The A-Z of internet marketing

—————————————————————-

 

For those of you new to internet marketing I am continuing this weekly section to explain some of the terms used in internet marketing to help you understand how the business works and what you will need to start your online business. So without further ado lets get started.

 

B is for Backlinks

Backlinks are one of the most important ways of climbing to the top of google page rankings. Here is the official definition. Backlinks are incoming links to a website or webpage. In basic link terminology, a backlink is any link received by a web node (web page, directory, website, or top level domain) from another web node.  Backlinks are also known as incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links.

The search engines often use the number of backlinks that a website has as one of the most important factors for determining that website’s search engine ranking, popularity and importance. Googles description of their page rank system, for instance, notes that Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B.

Knowledge of this form of search engine rankings has fueled a portion of the SEO industry commonly termed linkspam, where a company attempts to place as many inbound links as possible to their site regardless of the context of the originating site.

Websites often employ various techniques (called search engine optimization usually shortened to SEO) to increase the number of backlinks pointing to their website. Some methods are free for use by everyone whereas some methods like linkbaiting requires quite a bit of planning and marketing to work.

Some websites stumble upon “linkbaiting” naturally; the sites that are the first with a tidbit of ‘breaking news’ about a celebrity are good examples of that. When “linkbait” happens, many websites will link to the ‘baiting’ website because there is information there that is of extreme interest to a large number of people.

There are several factors that determine the value of a backlink. Backlinks from authoritative sites on a given topic are highly valuable. If both sites have content geared toward the keyword topic, the backlink is considered relevant and believed to have strong influence on the search engine rankings of the webpage granted the backlink.

A backlink represents a favorable ‘editorial vote’ for the receiving webpage from another granting webpage. Another important factor is the anchor text of the backlink. Anchor text  is the descriptive labelling of the hyperlink as it appears on a webpage. Search engine bots (i.e., spiders, crawlers, etc.) examine the anchor text to evaluate how relevant it is to the content on a webpage.

Anchor text and webpage content congruency are highly weighted in search engine results page (SERP) rankings of a webpage with respect to any given keyword query by a search engine user.

Increasingly, inbound links are being weighed against link popularity and originating context. This transition is reducing the notion of one link, one vote in SEO, a trend proponents hope will help curb linkspam as a whole.

It should also be noted that building too many backlinks over a short period of time can get a website’s ranking penalized, and in extreme cases, the website is de-indexed altogether. Anything above a couple of hundred a day is considered “dangerous”.

Sorry I know all that sounds complicated but you do not need to understand it all. In a nutshell, a backlink is a link, or vote if you like from another site by linking back to yours. The higher the page rank of the site linking back to you the more weight in Googles eyes that link carries.

The more links you can get especially high ranking ones from such as .edu domains  or pr5 plus pages the higher up the search engine rankings your page will go. Don`t worry about any of this when the time comes to get backlinks I will either teach you with step by step instructions or show you how and where to outsource this work for just a few dollars.

 

 

—————————————————————-

This Week’s Quick Tip

—————————————————————-

 

 

Why discounts are disastrous and bonuses beneficial.

 

Giving a discount is a favour granted by you to the buyer. But a bonus has to be earned.

 

That is a huge difference.

 

Once you cut your price, you psychologically set a new cost position in the buyer’s mind. Next time the discounted price is the one they compare with.

 

A bonus has the opposite effect. The buyer feels good about the sale, having won the bonus, but your price base hasn’t been eroded.

 

Whenever possible, sell a sale with a bonus, to the benefit of the buyer, rather than accept a discount, to the detriment of your company.

Please you owe it to yourself to take charge of your life. No one can do it for you but to do this you need to know what you want otherwise it`s like leaving the house on a car journey without having a destination.

 

You will just drive round and round but never get anywhere and it`s the same with life, know your own destination and then map out how to get there a little as a time. I will help you do this so stay with me over the coming weeks, as always feel free to email in any comments or suggestions on any improvements or additions etc as it`s your newsletter and I want you to get the maximum out of it.

That’s it for now I will speak to you next week and don’t forget this weeks training video below.

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

 

Hello and welcome to the first of my weekly newsletters. My name is Mike Rylance and I have spent the last few years studying what it takes to make money online. Before we go on I would like to add I am not a guru, but I have several websites of my own and know you can make a good living online by following a few simple step by step techniques that I intend to share with you over the coming weeks and months.

It is my intention to research all the popular products out there every week and buy any I think will benefit you.  I will then research them and, if and only if, I think they will be of benefit to you, I will recommend them to you so the risk is mine and not yours.

Rest assured I have your best interests at heart, I will not recommend rubbish to you as you will simply unsubscribe from my newsletter and I would not blame you. The world is full of marketers who pretend to be your friend, when really a quick buck is all they are interested in.

I can assure you I am different, I make a reasonable living and do not need to take advantage of you. I genuinely want to help you make a good start making money online, which is why I have started this newsletter.

I will never, hand on heart, tell you to buy anything I have not bought or created myself and fully reviewed to see if it will be of benefit to you. I know it can be overwhelming all the different ways of making money online but trust me I will help you find the best way through it all, so just sit back and let me do all the hard work for you and take all the risk.

This newsletter is designed to be interesting and readable and give useful information to help you on your journey to internet marketing success. It will give useful and free information and video training about how to make a living online along with some product reviews that I think will help you on that road to success.

So just sit back and enjoy. If you can think of anything that should be included in the newsletter that will increase its usefulness please email me and I will see what I can do because I want to make this as much your newsletter as my own.

The first thing we must establish is the belief that this can be done, because without that unfortunately you are beat at the first hurdle.

In Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll wrote “Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Today, I don’t know if you’ve had your breakfast or not yet, but I certainly don’t want you to believe six impossible things. Just one will do to start with.

The one impossible thing that I want you to believe today – and I really mean BELIEVE it with every ounce of your being – is that you CAN.

You CAN achieve success.

You CAN do anything that you WANT to do.

You CAN … fill in your own blank!

With that fundamental belief, anything that is physically possible is within your range. At times, even disability isn’t a barrier if you have sufficient belief.

I read last month about a young man who was a successful mountain climber. He had a fall and trapped his arm between two rocks.

He had a choice that most of us couldn’t imagine having to take – he could hang there until he died, or he could cut off his own arm. He chose to live. But that horrific tale isn’t the end of it.

He could easily have decided that without an arm, his mountain climbing days were over, but not this guy. He has the fire of ‘I Can’ burning like a torch inside of him.

He now has a prosthetic arm, shaped like a pirate’s hook and he is back climbing mountains like he never left off. His story was so inspiring they made a film about it called 127 Hours as I am sure most of you will know.

You don’t need to cut off your own arm to prove that you can climb mountains – and we all have different mountains to tackle in any case. What you do need is an absolute, unshakeable certainty that you CAN climb it.

When you KNOW that you CAN, actually doing it doesn’t seem so hard after all.

What is difficult is knowing where to start, as there is so much information out there and it’s so easy to become confused or to fall for the B.S. of the instant riches brigade. I have been there too and spent a fortune on every get rich quick scheme I could get my hands on.

But as soon as I hit a problem there was nowhere to turn, so I spent more money and tried something else, needed help and couldn`t get any then gave up and spent more money, sound familiar?

I want to be honest and open with you right from the start, I will be promoting products when I come across any that I think will genuinely help you and are of good quality and from marketers of integrity, hey we all have to make a living, but of course you are under no obligation to buy anything ever, if you don`t want to.
However they will all contain the information you need to help you make money online, I will never promote products unless they are of good quality as I want to earn your trust.

But if you are serious about making a living online like everything else you will need the information to do it and unless you already have it, you will need to acquire it from somewhere. It is my intention to sort out the wheat from the chaff for you to save you from wasting your hard earned cash and provide as many free resources as possible.

     A-Z Of Internet Marketing
—————————————————————-
For those of you new to internet marketing I am starting this weekly section to explain some of the terms used in internet marketing to help you understand how the business works and what you will need to start your online business, along with the weekly training videos. So without further ado let’s get started.

 

A is for autoresponder

Lots of people talk about autoresponders and how you can use them to grow your business online. But what actually is an autoresponder?

Quite simply, it’s a piece of software that enables you to send emails to people automatically. What you can do is set up a sequence of prewritten emails that are sent out to prospects on your database at regular intervals.

The importance of this cannot be underestimated. Time and time again internet marketing gurus tell you that the money is in the list. This is not by accident. The online marketing specialists know that this is fact. The more people you have on a mailing list that are interested in your products or services, the more sales you will make.

What you do is you create, let’s say, a seven part email course. Then you can set the intervals for the emails to, say, once a day and send them one part of the course each day. So you write the emails and then anyone joining that list will automatically be sent those emails for the next seven days.

This doesn’t matter if you’re online or if you’re away from the computer. They will get sent automatically. They also get added to the list automatically. And if they choose to unsubscribe, all of that is taken care of without you having to lift a finger.

The main benefit to using an autoresponder is connected to the fact that the majority of people need to be told about a product seven times before they buy it. So I want to ask you, how many times are you telling your visitors about your product?

Chances are it’s less than seven. Research has shown it takes on average 7 contacts with your potential customers before they will buy from you the first time.

They’ll land on your homepage or somewhere else on your website and they’ll look at your offering, but the majority of your sites visitors will disappear. So unless you can get them onto an opt-in mailing list, either a course or free information that is of multi-part format, the chances are you will have lost them forever.

You can use an autoresponder to send these messages out to people with their permission convincing them and educating them about your product.

This is simply a form of permission marketing. People will give you their permission to receive emails in return for you giving them free, quality information. Do not load the messages with over-hyped sales pitches, but give them real quality information with a small mention about your product at the end.

What you’ll find is that people come to know you and grow to trust you over time as you send them more and more information. The longer you can maintain this relationship with them, the more likely they are to actually buy from you.

The beauty of this is that using an autoresponder saves you the costs of printing, posting and packaging and enables you to contact and keep in touch with all your prospects around the clock without actually having to do anything. There are many autoresponder companies out there some free and some paid.

But from my experience if you are serious about your business you want the best which for me is hands down Aweber. But you do not need one until you have put everything else in place first, which we will talk about at a later date as I do not wish to overload you with information.

You can start without an autoresponder, without your own product and even without your own website, but I will go into that more in the coming weeks and give you more free resources to show you how.

If you think you are beaten you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will;
It’s all in the state of mind.

Walter D. Wintle.

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

 

 

Take a ten minutes break, right now. Plan your day on paper. Make yourself a list of everything you would like to achieve today. That’s right, everything.

Now, get two coloured highlighter pens and mark all the tasks that will take more than half an hour, and all those that will take less.

Set your own priorities for the jobs, but make sure you complete at least two short ones for every long one.

For every long job crossed off the list or two short ones, give yourself a small reward, a five minute break, a square of chocolate, a cup of coffee. You choose.

Now watch as your busy schedule starts to make more sense.

Welcome to the wonderful world of time management.

Have you tried making your own marketing videos yet? If not its something you should consider many of the big marketers are doing it and it’s much easier than you think. You have two choices make a PowerPoint presentation of slides and just read out what it says on the slides, or appear in the video yourself and read off a pre prepared script.

Now before you panic and say I could never appear in a video just give it a try. Here’s how I do it, first you don’t need a state of the art camera, you can do this with virtually any video camera, at a push even your mobile phone. But ideally you want a video camera that can take an external microphone to minimize back ground noise and make sure you can be heard properly.

Another useful but not essential feature is the ability to turn around the screen so it’s facing you, so you can see yourself while you are filming to make sure you are in the centre of the screen. You then set your camera up on a tripod so it sits in front of your pc screen. You then make sure your script is written in Microsoft word or on a note pad then you copy and paste it into a free program called Cue Prompter.

At www.cueprompter.com you can access for free, an autocue program like they use on tv. You simply open up the program and paste in your text where it says, write or cut and paste your script here. You can then start the text running on your pc monitor, you can control the speed the text is shown.

Then you simply read out your text and while you are reading you are looking directly into the camera as it’s in front of the screen you are reading from. If you make a mistake which I usually make quite a few, no problem only you know about it, you just press stop and try again, you can edit out any mistakes later.

I use a paid product called Camtasia which is the Rolls Royce of video making, but it is expensive at over $200. But there is a free one on your windows pc called widows movie maker or imovie for a mac, or one called jing which is a free version of camtasia. I have put together a training video to show you cue prompter in action and I will be making another video covering the editing of your videos.

So what are you waiting for, just give it a try. Only you will see the results until you are completely happy with it and don’t worry about your voice, everyone hates the sound of there own voice on video but it sounds fine to everyone else. So don’t forget click the blue link below to watch the video and who knows you could be the next Stephen Spielberg.

What Is The Copyscape Test?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

You may or may not have heard about articles having to pass the copyscape test but let me quickly explain what it`s all about. When you are buying PLR articles to use on either your own site, or more so on article directories you don`t want to just use them as they come.

This is because the articles will have been used by other marketers thousands of times before you and the article directories will only accept unique content.

Whilst you could use them as they are on your own site it will not help you rank well with the search engines as this is considered duplicate content.

What you should do is to either rewrite them yourself or outsource to sites such as Freelancer.com or Elance.com. What is Copyscape, well it’s considered the industries benchmark when it comes to checking for your contents uniqueness.

What the copyscape site does is check your article or text for it’s unique content on sites all over the internet in seconds. You just go to www.copyscape.com and sign up for an account and pay in $5 or $10.

This allows you for 5 cents a time to simply copy and paste your text into the box and push a button and within seconds it will scan the internet and tell you if your content is unique.

This is a must if you are paying others to rewrite for you to make sure they have done a good job before you pay them. It is also necessary to check your own articles if you have rewritten or spun them to ensure you have altered them sufficiently to make them unique.

I have created a short video for you demonstrating the live use of the Copyscape site. Check it out using the blue link below.

How To Get Started With Clickbank

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Hello again and today I want to talk to you about Clickbank.
Clickbank is an online market place for products that you can promote as an affiliate and get up to 75% commission for every sale you get.

Clickbank is home to hundreds of products in many niches not just internet marketing and there is bound to be something that interests you there.

I know what you are thinking why would anyone give you 75% of their profits. Well it’s because you are the one doing all the word to send them visitors known as (traffic) to their offer.

Visitors they would never have had without your efforts, so they make 25% for doing nothing and the icing on the cake is they get to capture the email addresses of the visitors and add them to their list.

Then in the future they can send offers to that list and generate sales for years to come and keep 100% of the profit, pretty clever eh. You are effectively building their list for them and earning them 25% profit to boot, and all for no work on their side.

Right, back to Clickbank, I am going to give you a free download I created that will explain all about Clickbank but I will also create a training video to help you get the most from Clickbank because I know some people prefer to learn that way.

In time teach you how you can easily create a product such as this and accompanying videos as they are quite easy to create. You would be surprised how easy it is.

Look out for the video in the training category on the right of the home page of the site.

Hello again, today I want to talk to you about getting started with your own internet marketing business.

There’s a lot of nonsense talked about this by a lot of so called gurus, this only causes confusion. Where do you start, 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.

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.

 

  •  Here’s what 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 and good luck.

Are You Ready???

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Hello again, I hope you have had time to implement what you and I discussed last time about finding your own workspace and making yourself comfortable in it. If not you need to do this asap, no excuses.

You can buy yourself a small workstation from the likes of staples very cheaply and at first just use an ordinary chair as long as you are comfortable in it.

When I first started out I use an old wooden chair out of my garage and after every half hour or so I had to get up and walk around because my back was killing me, no good for your concentration.

Ok let’s assume your workspace is now sorted out, have you allocated your work schedule as we discussed into days and hours you can work.

I am sorry to keep going on about these things but they are the building blocks of your business and you will almost certainly fail without them.

Ok we are ready to move on. The next thing you and I need to look at is your mindset, oh no I hear you cry, but again this is very important.

If you do not truly believe you can do this and believe me you can do it, you will be proved right every time and fail. You need to develop a can do attitude and believe in yourself.

Making money online is not really that difficult but you have to follow a proven path, which I will give you and stick to it.

Giving up and jumping from one thing to another is why you have failed up to now and will continue to do so unless you change.
You need to focus and never give up.
