A few years ago…ok more like 5 years ago, after listening to a training about internet marketing and setting goals, I was pumped up! You know how it is right after you listen or watch a really good training, how you’re ready to take on the world and tell everyone about it… at least for a good hour before reality and doubt set in.
How many times have you come across training that you say to yourself when you’re done going through it “I’m not doing that because it might not work?” or “I heard that doesn’t work anymore?” (And this is assuming you actually go through the training you bought).
You’ve already decided that it’s not going to work WITHOUT taking action and trying it for yourself. Who said it wouldn’t work? If you really are truthful in answering that question, you’ll soon realize that the people saying this or that won’t work are the people who have never done it. Continue reading
It’s easy to make excuses not to make videos. It’s too hard, I don’t have the right equipment, I don’t know what I’m doing, I’ll look like an idiot.
Well, we are going to get rid of all of those excuses by showing you how to create quick cell phone videos, upload them to Youtube and put them on your blog.
And if you don’t have a tripod or stand, then you can be creative…or a little trashy. This is a picture of what I did to record my videos before I bought a tripod.
I used painters tape and taped my phone to the freezer. I then taped my script around it and started recording. It wasn’t pretty but it got the job done. Continue reading
I recently went back through my comments to check on my fellow Quick Start Challenge (QSC) folks to see how they were doing. When I started this blog, I was part of a much bigger community that was starting our online businesses together. There seems to be comfort in crowds. You can read about the QSC in my post A Challenge May Be The Start You’re Looking For.
So, I went back to see how my fellow QSCers were doing and much to my dismay, many of their blogs are either gone or haven’t been updated since the challenge ended or soon there after.
It is very sad that so many dreams were broken for people hoping to make it online. These dreams were broken by a lack of follow through, lack of effort, life getting in the way or just giving into that tiny voice in their head saying “you’ll never be successful”. Whatever happened, it is sad! Continue reading
There are a few things that can drive me crazy and comment spam is one of them. But if you’re going to have a blog then you are going to have spam. You just have to figure out how to deal with it.
A few months ago I read about a product on a blog, http://www.wazzupyo.com, that could STOP SPAM COLD! So I figured I’d give it a try since I was getting several spam comments a day. The best part of this product is that it is FREE and is a WordPress plugin. Excellent! Continue reading
If you’re looking for a product that gives a basic explanation of Google Hangouts, you’ll be very disappointed. On the other hand if you’re looking for MUCH MUCH MORE, then Hangout Cash Code is for you!
They spend less then 1/2 of this course explaining how to use Hangouts. They spend the rest of the time explaining how you can MAKE CASH with Hangouts. Continue reading
Solo Ads are one of those great, horrible….exciting, scary…expensive, economical….good, bad ways of getting traffic.
Everyone has an opinion about solo ads and whether they are a serious option for getting good traffic. There are enough marketers and products out there that say solo ads are a good way to build a list, so I decided to buy some solo ads and test things for myself. My results are below. Continue reading
I’ve mentioned blog commenting before and how it is a great way to get traffic to your website. I thought today I’d give you a list of six of my favorite internet marketing bloggers so you can check them out.
I’ve learned a ton by reading these blogs and have had some great interactions as well. I not only learn from what they have written, but I learn from how they interact with their blog visitors, social media fans and those on their list.
This is a reprint from a blog post I did from my first blog. It still applies.

Earlier this week I went white water rafting in Washington State. There were 5 people in the raft with a guide/instructor. We were asked if we wanted to go over a 14′ waterfall, told the pros and cons and given about a minute to make up our minds… Continue reading
Human beings are funny. Everything can be going great, knocking tasks off our to do list and the next minute….no motivation, can’t sit down at the computer. And when I do sit down at the computer, I accomplish nothing on my to do list. This was how the last couple of weeks has gone for me. Continue reading
