*** 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.

*** Quotation

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.

To your continued success
