The Trouble With Forums

The trouble with forums is the medium is imperfect. We have to rely on one of our senses to interpret our communications with each other. Our sense of sight.

You have people from all over the world. Different backgrounds, different educations, different values, different attitudes, and different personalities.

The medium itself is expressionless. Expression and body language are big parts of communication. Many forums have used smilies as a means to express yourself better by giving the post a mood.

 There are many little notations you can add to express your mood or reactions. Unfortunately even those can be misinterpreted easily by different people.

There is also the writing experience of the poster that is a factor. There are different levels of posters - beginner to advanced all mixed together. There are different styles of writing influenced by education or geography.

Every forum has rules that can be slightly different from one to another. One will allow a little self promotion and another will prohibit it. Sometimes it's a fine line to follow.

A large issue is the fact that we often depend on the number of posts a person has to determine the validity of statements or intentions. 

Many posters with a few posts are in awe of those with thousands. If you have 3000 posts, you can say something about anything and have an impact whether it's based in truth or not...

The volume of posts alone cannot determine intelligence or the experience of the poster. One person can have 100 posts of pure brilliance.

 Each post composed of profound thoughts, well written comments, smart ideas, and relevant information. Another can have 4000 posts which are composed of nothing more than fluff. Most contributing little to the forum.

Someday I hope to see a universal method that stretches across all forums. Create a way to document a persons journey and experience in forums

Essentially a fingerprint that can be implanted in the posters profile. A stand alone database that can be accessed for information on this poster. That combined with some new innovations to help communicate...

Is it a size factor. The larger the forum the easier to control. I don't think so. It's the management of the forum. The Administrators or Moderators are in control. 

The trouble is some forums lack leadership. I've seen, on several occasions, forums destroyed or at least wounded, because of the lack of control. Then regular people in the forum will try to act as police and it will mushroom into a war.

The Admin or Mods need to police the halls. They need to control the crowds. It can happen fast. One second all is calm. The next, the forum is on fire.

A Policing Presence is so important.

Also there must be a clear system of conduct. Clear to anyone stepping foot through the doorway. There also has to be a clear discipline policy that is followed to a "T".

It's not an easy task to keep things together. This is especially true for a newer forum. Unless you already have a team of people in place you can trust to control things, it's a crap shoot.

So, know, if you are considering starting a forum for any reason, it's not as easy as just uploading it to your server and letting the visitors have at each other. 

You have to have a game plan. It has to be well thought out. Try and recruit some people to help you out with it.

This is if you have the traffic and expect a lot of signups. If the process is slowed it may be easier to control on your own and people will grow with the forum.

 But if you dump hundreds of people from all over the world in a short period of time... look out!

And lastly, it does depend on the topic of the forum. If it's a forum about Scams, you will attract the scammers as well as the people trying to get help. If you create a forum for hungry entrepreneurs, expect some conflicts. 

If you have a forum about the Care of Rabbits, you'll probably be safe. Certain topics will attract certain personalities.

Just some thoughts about the subject I had on my mind. It's interesting. Forums have become a good way to create community. So I know a lot of people are considering doing it. 

You just have to know that it will take some of your resources (i.e., time) to manage it. This isn't a thing that can just put up and forgotten about...

Getting Out The Information Loop...

This is something I see being discussed and it's a Problem today for New and even some Experienced Internet Marketers.

It's regarding the moment you realize that you know enough.

A lot of people get into a trap or "loop" of buying eBook after ebook and course after course looking for the magic formula to success.

I honestly believe some of it stems from laziness. We think this online stuff or other Works should be easy... So we search in vain for the easy formula or Easy Way Out, Dont get Over worked as it can Be Disastrous !!!

Until that day we realize the formula is never easy and that we already know how to be a success online.

Some people have spent 1000s of dollars looking for the magic formula. But they never find it. Why? Because there isn't one. 

Or when one emerges it doesn't last long; the market becomes saturated with people running after the opportunity and overnight the opportunity loses it's power.

That why I think it is so important to hang out in forums, read all the free stuff out there and then choose a path that is suited to YOU. 

After you've decided what path is best, then maybe buy a few eBooks related to that path... But commit to it and don't be distracted because you see everyone else running to the New Big Thing.

Everyone's going to be selling you something. All of them will convince you it's the next best thing, but they are just SELLING something.

I'm not saying don't buy anything. I am saying focus on a specific area and get to work. 

Don't get bogged down by purchasing every new thing that comes along... This will never stop. 

There will always be new products to google over...

You need to know when to stop. It's a bit of an addiction, but admitting you have a problem is the first step:)

So take a look at what you have. 

Take a look at yourself and make a decision to start acting. Start putting your money into your business instead of info products.

Start today!

You Need to Decide! Are you decisive?

If you're not, it going to be a long, disappointing road.

I have been online pursuing opportunities now for some time now. You know what? I've made a lot of decisions along the way. 

Some of those were the right ones, but many were also the wrong ones. The decisions we make define us.

There are a lot of opportunities out there that will promise you riches beyond your wildest imaginations. 

That's great! Except it's not that simple. I don't care what it is, it will take hard work, commitment and Decisions...

As an example, let's say you decide your opportunity is to set up a website to sell golden widgets. How would you approach this. Would you just set up a site and boom the checks will start rolling in!?

No. First you have decide how the website is going to be set up. Are you going to build it yourself?

 If so, whats best for your website? Do you want it set it up in PHP or do you want to use CCS? What editor will you use? Front Page?

Or are you going to decide to hire someone to build it for you?

How will you lay it out? Do you have a logo? Do you need one? What color scheme are you going to use? Do you know the effect of color on your visitors? How do you decide?

What eCommerce solution is best for you? Consider your monthly volume. If it is going to be over $1,000, a merchant account is usually a good choice. 

You may consider Paypal in conjunction with a merchant account, it even just got Better by making it open to Over 5 New Countries Nigeria Being one of them as this Country has a lot of prospects, despite the Challenges it's Facing. 

If you do consider a merchant account, you also need to look into electronic payment gateways.

Then you have to market the products... Are you going to use pop-ups? Are you going to advertise with Adwords, Banners, E-zines...

What's my Point!? You are going to have to make the right decisions for you business. There are a lot of steps from getting an idea to building the proper platform for the idea and executing it.

Your decisions will ultimatly lead to an end result... Did it work? Are you making money?... or is it a do over?

When you decide to pursue an opportunity, that is the decision that will trigger the rest of them.

You must learn to decide. Indecision will find you broke and discouraged..

There is a lot of potential online. The best way to insure your success is to make sure you create multiple streams of income.

Doing a combination of things can really help.

Having a newsletter will allow you to capture visitors and down the road convert them to a sale. Not everyone buys on the first visit to your website.

Adsense is another good source of income. You have to have some good traffic to make a lot of money, but I was suprised when I started using it as a strategy throughout my websites. 

Hey, even if its another 30, 40 or 50 dollars a month, it can pay some of your expenses.

Submitting to directories is a great way to get the Search Engines to take notice. I do not recommend even submitting to Search Engines anymore. 

You can get crawled by the Search Engine Spider much quicker by getting some links coming to your website.

 Spiders follow links off of websites. So if a link to your website is on another site that gets spidered, you're all set!

Writing articles can get you a little traffic rolling as well. And it's a great way to establish yourself as an expert in your field. The inbound links also help with your position in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPS)

Everyone can make a living online. It's takes a lot of hard work sometimes. Many people fail before they find good income, but it is possible for everyone.

Keep learning. I learn something new everyday. I hang out in forums, read articles, eBooks... I'm continually soaking up information. You have to to keep up with your competition.

Just go out there and do it; I'll see you at the top!

How to Enter a Forum...

That Title sounds silly doesn't it? Why would I have to learn how to enter a forum? I just sign up and post right?

It would seem on the surface to be that easy, but I see a lot of people have a real hard time...

Over time forums create a very tight community. Everyone learns the rules and looks out for each other...

That's the first thing... Read the rules. Different forums approach how you display links differently or even what you can talk about...

The other thing is don't come in gang busters!! Don't try to prove yourself and get to excited about showing everyone your knowledge etc....

Get to know the community first. Hang out for a while. Introduce yourself politely... Usually there is a separate area set aside for intros... And then start browsing.

Get to know the other posters... Remember a lot of these people have known each other for a while. They may even be doing business behind the scenes...

Once you have a feel for it, start helping out.

Helping out... If you have any knowledge to contribute, provide it... Help people with things you know about.

Learn... Read... Learn... Read some more... Ask questions...

Then let it rip if you want to.

The bottom line is very few people can go crazy right off the bat... There is an exception here or there, but usually the community wants to see you contribute for a while before you get bold.

 They need to get to know you.

Definitely don't provide a sales pitch in your first post... You will getting flaming posts and anger the community. Everyone will see it as spam.

It's just like building any relationship. Easy at first until you get to know each other.

Forums are powerful things. Don't abuse that power. And don't ruin your reputation...

How Useful Are Blogs?

Blogs are sweeping the internet like a brush fire. They're everywhere. Everyone is jumping on the idea.

But, why do we do it? A lot of people do them for fun. They just use it for a journal maybe to share among friends, Some for entertainment, Experiments and more. 

Some might have a small community with their website and it's a great way to provide fresh information, news and ideas.

You can have a Blog directly on your website or, like myself, take advantage of Wordpress.com Blogger.com's free Blog Service, The Popular Blogspot. 

It still compliments the site, there are a lot of bells and whistles and it's very user friendly.

A large number of people are told that blogs are great for the search engines! And they are.

 But content alone won't find you at the top of the SERPS (Search Engine Results Pages).

I saw this answers in a post from someone recently regarding Blogs being listed in search engines. they were debating if Blogs were treated any different just for being a Blog.

 Here is one of the responses I think might be useful:

It will take time (to find your way into the search engines). And a Blog probably isn't treated any different than a regular website. You have to have good Inbound Links, keywords etc...

And regarding if blogs are treated any different than regular websites:

This is probably one of those questions that only Google knows and will just become a rumor...

I don't think they are treated any different. You just have to treat them like you're optimizing a website.

There is one thing about Blogging that you really need to know. It takes a lot of commitment.

 You have to decide if you're going to blog once per day, once per week, or every so often. For the sake of those reading your Blog...

I compare it to this. A guy worked as a bartender for almost 10 years while searching for opportunity. A tavern he worked for quit a few years had a good philosophy that can be applied to Blogs...

Then In Wisconsin taverns must close by law at 2:00Am during the week or 2:30Am on the weekends. Now if business is slow or you have no one in your restaurant or bar at 12:01Am, should you close?

The answer is no. If you have someone that same evening you close early travel 20 miles to go to your establishment and it's closed, the next time that person wants to go to a tavern at that time of day will go somewhere else... and this time he might bringing 10 of his friends if he previously enjoyed your Services !

You should stick to your hours no matter what... you could potentially lose business. Build a reputation for being there when people need you.

Same things goes for Blogs. If you blog everyday, don't miss a day. People start to depend on it or expect your Blogging. If they stop by and you haven't entered a Blog in a few days, they might not come back...

I'm working on this myself. I just missed a few days. It is my intention to Blog everyday. When I don't, I try to make up for it with a couple postings in one day.

Sometimes what we want to do and what we can do are two different things.

 I am busy with my businesses so sometimes it's hard to do... it shouldn't be hard... even a 2 minutes shout out or tweak is better than nothing...  work on it.

Take Care!

Have a Productive Day!

Content, Fresh Content ... All The Way

What if you wrote an article a day? 

What if you added a few hundred words a day to your website? Could you do it?

Not everyone could. Your brain has to come up with this stuff... Here's an idea.

What is your website about? Is it about chickens? Let's say it's about chickens...

Sit down and write out a list of topics that you could talk about related to chickens or The farm. Brainstorm away...

Can't think of anything! Do a search: www.Google.com

Still can't think of anything! Remember that place you used to go to in school? Maybe you still do. That big building with all the books....

The Library! Go to your local library and collect all the books on chickens. Take those books and make a list of all the topics related to chickens.

Now there be a lot of chicken topics. You definitely should narrow it down to a niche topic or two. The more niched the better. 

You'll be able to target your audience better and the Search Engines will like you better if you're focused.

Now, got your list..... Wait, wait... Bobby, Bobby... Sorry, one of your class mates dozed off...

Where was I?

Oh, yea, your list. Now take that list and put that list in order of relevancy. Focus on the topics that are related to what your website is about? As time goes on you'll add to this list. 

When new products come onto the scene. When your subject's in the news... Maybe some of the topics will be broken into several sessions...

Then each day grab a topic off your list and write about it!

What are you going to say? Don't worry about it. Just start typing. It'll come.

You have to learn to let go. Relax. Let your mind do the typing.

If you need to, write out an outline first, but then just go. It may not be perfect. You may have to fine tune it after you're done, but you'll have done it! You acted. You'll get better as time goes on.

You don't have to do much. 300-400 words a day would be enough. Just enough for the search engines to find some new content.

Pay some attention to a few keywords. Try to optimize a little for those. In other words, maybe repeat the main words or phrases of the topic a few times.

 If you're talking chicken feed, mention the phrase chicken feed a few times. Then the search engines will know what your little article or content is about.

You will probably only need to set aside a half hour a day once you get good at it.

That doesn't include making sure the page URL matches your keywords, your meta tags match your keywords and things like that.

You see this post you are reading. When I started typing, I had know idea what I was going to type about!! True story. It came write out of me.

I wrote the Title... Content, Fresh Content, All the Way ... And I started typing.

How long did it take me? I think about 10 minutes.... Wow am done for Today!

Have a Productive Day !

How To Survive Until Your Business is Off the Ground…

What of the most difficult things to do when you first go into business is waiting for the money to start flowing… or simply to pay the bills… breaking even is always nice. 

Honestly, don’t let the hype out there fool you… Don’t buy into you can get rich overnight. Most of that is a bunch of “you know what”.
It is simply not that easy.

The online world is just like the offline world when it comes to business. When you start a business expect there to be a learning curve, expect to work hard, work long hours, and even invest money before you see a decent profit.

Like this site says above:
Many businesses do not make a profit in their first year but can earn enough to cover their outgoings.

 Even if your business generates more than this, you may want to re-invest it to help your business develop. You may therefore need an alternative source of income while your business is growing.

Don’t sell the farm… don’t necessarily give up your day job right away. I know you hate it and are itching to strike out on your own, but think before you act…

Listen, I read about a guy who now runs his own businesses, but he didn’t just quit everything else before he started one. He got into the insurance business in 1997. He was a full-time bartender and struggling artist…. He dumped being an artist; it wasn’t making him any money anyway.  

BUT he stayed on as a bartender for a couple of years until he had a good foot hold in his new career. He’d work at the office during the week and bartend at night or on the weekends…

Then when he got into contracting business, H started part-time, just as a weekend gig… which quickly took hold and was able to leave insurance and do it full-time…

For me, I don’t just do online stuff. I still some have my off-line businesses and  Computer Hardware Activities. If I make a million dollars online will I close or my offline Businesses… probably or May Not.

 But until then I’m going to keep my foot in both worlds. You never know what might happen… I like my bases covered… for now.

Some of the most successful people I know online either are still in an offline business or career and work online as well… or they waited until the cash was flowing big time online before they took the risk to leave their job.

Listen, this is especially important if you have responsiblities. Your wife, kids, family come first. 

Make sure there is food on the table.

You can still have big dreams! You can still take risks, but make sure they are calculated. What can you afford to lose??

I could certainly stop my business offline, but I won’t right now. I’m doing fine in my current situation. And it gives me more stability which my wife seems to enjoy the most!

Calculate what you can risk; consider combining another form of income until your business is rocking… there is nothing wrong with that. Businesses have done that for ages!

It is not uncommon for a business not to show a profit for a couple years even! Some of the most successful and biggest businesses in the world started that way!  Fact. 

I’m not saying it will take you that long, but just trying to show you the realistic side of life.

The key is persistence and focusing on your goals, never giving up AND calculating your risks… If you decide to succeed, you will in time.

OR you could get lucky and strike gold your first day… ya never know!

Extrodinary… This Internet Business

This internet business. Did you know you can make money online? Legitimately. For real. No joke.
I didn’t believe it myself a few years ago, but here I am. Making money…

Seriously though. There is so many things going on online it’s just remarkable.

 The environments we find ourselves in change so rapidly it’s a wonder how one can keep up… but keep up we must.

There are many things one can do to make GREAT money online… BUT you can have the greatest opportunity there is sitting in front of you, but the success we all have long term relies on two things:

 1) Persistance

 2) The ability to adapt.

That’s the environment we’re in. Do not expect what you are doing today will be valid and productive in 3 months. 

Don’t shy away from new ideas and tools that arise daily.

Always look for ways to enhance what you are already doing, but don’t give up… focus. Stick to your guns. Have the ability to change course, but don’t be so quick to change ships…

The people I see that struggle and fail online… it’s not that they haven’t found the ONE thing that’s going to make them money… it’s because they float from one thing to another. The never fully develop a product or effort. They don’t find their expertise.

There is an extrodinary amount of things one can do online… but it’s your approach that will pull you through. It’s the routines and rules one sets for themselves that will make it happen.
Do you have what it takes?

Building Profitable Relationships

You may be missing out on an incredible opportunity… an opportunity that is very, very overlooked by many, many people with online businesses.

Are you acting alone?
Are you trying to do it all yourself?

“I know what you’re driving at Matt”, you say. “You want me to hire someone to do some of the work I’m doing. You want me to outsource… You want me to hire an outside marketing firm to handle promoting my business.”

“I can’t afford it!”, you say…. or whatever excuse you come up with…
Wrong, wrong and wrong. That’s not what I’m driving at.
And it doesn’t cost you anything. 

Have you considered partnering up with another business? Have you considered doing a Joint Venture with another business or entrepreneur?

Take a hard look at what you are doing… now look around the interent. What businesses out there could benefit from a relationship with you? What businesses might be able to do something in trade with you? 

There might be someone out there with an e-mail list… if you have one as well you could advertise in each others and expand your e-mail lists… grab each others subscribers!
You could write an article or report for someone that has a newsletter related to your website or business. 

Believe me. The sky’s the limit.
You can also take on projects you never dreamed possible if you find an individual or a group of people that have the same goals you do. 

Like minded people that care about what you are doing… and have resources you don’t have access to. Knowledge that you can tap… or can they tap and use yours in trade?

How do you find them?

They are everywhere… forums are an exellent place to begin. Get involved and you might have people approach you naturally. I have…

Or if you find someone with a situation that suits you, send them a Private Message… If you have something that could help someone, help them.

Building relationships online can give you more opportunity and help you reach heights you never dreamed possible… And you can learn and grow in the process.

You could also simply just start searching through Search Engines or Directories to find sites that might benefit from a relationship with you. Just e-mail the webmaster and see what happens!

I know doing it alone is easy. Doing it alone keeps things in control… but sometimes if you give up a little control… sometimes if you open your eyes and look for a partner, BIG things can happen.

10 things a person should do To Help Find Opportunity, Capture and Succeed at it:

1.    The first thing you need to do is Study and Learn everything you can. Start with my Free eCourse or Subscription Below. It’s designed to give someone an overview of what’s going on on-line. It’s built to draw you a picture of what is possible. 

It will help lead anyone to THEIR Opportunity. The minutes someone takes to take the free eCourse will save them 100s of hours bumping around trying to sift through all the useless information online. 

I’ve done it for you; I’ve spent hours online seeking opportunities and Learning. 

2.    Invest in some good material related to what you are doing. I have many good materials that I suggest threaded throughout my Free eCourse.

 Many of these will refine you’re skills and build your knowledge beyond what you’ll find for free out there. 

3.    Figure out how to find stuff. Search around the internet using the Search Engines. Type in a keyword for anything you want to know about (i.e., Google.com, Yahoo.com). 

4.    There are a lot of good e-Books out there as well. Some you’ll find at my e-Book store. A few are free! Again find some that are related to your goals.

 But, be careful. Don’t buy into people selling huge packages of e-Books for pennies. Most of these are a waste of your time. They’ll contain old information, broken & corrupt files, and many are just advertisements in disguise. 

5.    Sign up for some forums related to your business and marketing strategies. Some to consider that I hang around are: http://www.scrubtheweb.com/abs/meta-check.html, seochat.com,http://www.internetmarketingninjas.com/seo-tools/free-optimization/, . 

6.    I also suggest creating a business plan. Think everything through. I talk more about this in Lesson 1 of my Free eCourse. 

7.    Dive In! Once you’ve weighed your risk Just Go For It. You need to decide what you can risk to pursue this. It is just like any business you might start. 

You need to have a contingency plan, an exit strategy, and Money & Time to lose. Nothing is guaranteed online.

8.    Be wary of people trying to sell you an opportunity with a good sales pitch. They’re trying to sell you. You need to understand that not every opportunity is YOUR opportunity. 

There might be many successful people doing well in something, but it’s not for you. It depends on your talents, education, and goals. 

9.    Dig in! No matter what you read elsewhere, understand that this may not happen overnight for you. The people that are very successful online have been doing this for a long time. The reason they are successful is because they out lasted their competition. 

Think of this as a long term business effort. That’s not to say you can’t make money right away, but don’t expect to get rich in the next few months… it can happen! But it’s rare. 

10.    Have Fun!! You know what? This is true. You need to enjoy what you are doing. Find your passion. Find something you’re interested in. 

Then specialize in that area. Focus you’re energy. If you love cats. Sell cat stuff. Build a website about cats. Start a cat forum. Become an online cat guru.

So the bottom line is, you can find success online. But it will be work. No ones going to deliver you an automatic cash machine to make millions of dollars. Well they might offer you one, but they won’t deliver.

I think if you followed these guidelines, you will stand a better chance of succeeding online. One additional note. Find your Niche. 

Become an expert. Create a better product or service than your competition. And stick with it. Failure is not an option!!

Find your path... Learn from the past... Do business in the present...

A quote from Allen Says:

"Most Warriors already know everything they need to know to make great money on the internet, right now. Whether they do it or not is entirely up to them. 

It is most definitely in the benefit to keep you hanging on seeking the next big "secret" while the whole time they are doing what really makes money and has always made money:

1. Building Huge Lists

2. Creating Viral Systems

3. Doing JV's (Joint Ventures)

4. Running Affiliate Programs

5. Creating Information Books, Packages & Monthly Subscriptions

Look at what they are "doing" instead of what they are "saying" you should do..."

Excellent! That has really hit the nail on the head... if that's what you want to do.

 But don't sacrifice an idea that doesn't fit into these categories. Be creative and innovative.

That is right about looking at what others are doing and not telling you to do. That's a profound statement.

The future: Even online veteran’s don't know what the future holds. He doesn't see everything or know everything. …  

They have made millions in the past, but we're dealing with the present and the future.........

Also…  many of you reading this aren’t going to take the same path as a Guru might tell you is THE way to go…

Some People have made millions in real estate. So could I and so could you! 

What's stopping us? It could be many reasons I would imagine... Education, it doesn't interest you, geography, Economics, Business Ideas or Top Most of All Funds ?

Not everyone is going to be able to be a Real Estate developer. And not all millionaires have real estate...

Find your path now......

In the end, PageRank will help your position in the SERPs.... "Then how's it not important?", you ask. It's important, but it should happen naturally. That's my point.

PageRank is volatile and changes just like all of Google Algorithms. 

Google is in a continuous state of change so if you are obsessed with figuring something out, by the time you do, it's no longer a valid conclusion...

So how can you make it happen naturally?

•    Create good content and people will link to you without you even asking! 

•    You can seek out exchange partners. If you do, make sure their website compliments your sites theme. Google has a love affair with relevancy. The more relevant a site is to your site, the better.

•    Many have concluded that a sites PR will rub off on you. So if you link to a PR5 site, that will help... But only a little bit. I think it's something like .00001 % of that PR that rubs off. It's very minor.

•    There are other factors involved in calculating PageRank that no one knows except Google. But willing to bet, that much of it is do to the quality of the websites linking to you. It's not how many sites that link to you, it's the quality and relevancy that matters.

•    Bad sites linking to you will not hurt you. Many people have the impression that they should only get inbound links for PR5 or better sites. This is hog wash. These will help you, but the lesser sites won't hurt you. If that were the case, your competition would link to you from 100s of crappy sites to bring your PR down...

Some Common Terms and Definitions:

PR4 - Google ranks pages by how many inbound links you're getting. PR stands for PageRank. PageRank has a scale from 1-10... PR4 is pretty good. (PageRank Explained)

Anchor Text - Use the link above as an example... PageRank Explained is anchor text. The link itself is hidden. It's just the text that you see on the page that links somewhere else if you click it.

Meta Tags - This is code embedded in a web page that tells the visiting Search Engines stuff about the page (title, description, keywords)

Keyword Density - All that's referring to is how many times certain words and phrases occur on a page.

Fresh Content - This is updating or changing text regularly on a Web Page.

BLs - Back Links - These are links that are coming from other websites to your website.
Static - Nothing changes on that page (no fresh content ever)

JVs - Joint Ventures - 2 or more people get together to help each other promote and make money.

Pay Per Click Advertising - It's advertising you will see in your search results from Search Engines such as Google, Overture, etc..

 They call them Sponsored Links. When people click on those ads, the advertiser is charged a few sense or dollars.

Spider Bots - It's a program that visits websites to find content and index that content into the Search Engine's Results pages.

SEs - Search Engines

Nibble On - Giving the Search Engines a little fresh content to index and keep them coming back hopefully...
I may have more thoughts to come about this topic. But I had these on my mind this morning. Sometimes I have to empty my mind to make room for new ideas.... hehe...

Have a Productive Day!!

How to Motivate Yourself Forever

Just as willpower is an essential factor in achieving success, at some point in time, discouragement and lack of motivation may hinder you from reaching your objective. 

And it is up to you, and you alone to devise techniques that will help you keep that drive within afire.

It is helpful to have visual goals. whatsoever that is you are working towards, make it visual.

 It maybe something material like a car, or a vacation you have been looking forward to for the longest time.

Take or cut out a picture of it and post it at a conspicuous place at work or at home where you can see it often. 

So that when you feel discouraged, this will remind you of your goal and will help you keep your spotlight.

Make a contract with oneself. According to motivational researches, people who write down to-do-lists are far more triumphant in achieving their intended goals than those people who just keep mental lists instead.

Putting something in writing somehow makes it more powerful psychologically speaking. This may also be the basis why most cultures have such a high regard in honoring contracts. 

In the contract, you may also include a certain reward that you will give yourself once you have accomplished the task.

After all, everyone likes to be rewarded for completing a good job. Even a simple pat on the back, “good job”, or “thank you” may do the trick to give the person the additional push to carry on, but unfortunately, these may not always be readily available.

 Considering that these are also essential in keeping oneself motivated, you must learn to find a way to get that encouragement on your own through pleasing yourself.

Abusive people lower your self-esteem and bring you down. Get these negative people out of your life. Surround yourself with positive people. Imitate their example. Smile amply and think happy thoughts.

These will give you a brighter outlook and lets you see a clearer picture of what you really want and a fresh mind to know what steps to take to get there. 

Rather than wait for things to happen, try to be proactive and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. Inactivity idles the brain and stagnates your potential to reach your goals.

Read inspirational books and literature. These will help you improve your attitude and heal your mind. A book of success stories also proves to be encouraging. 

You will not only learn from others' experiences and derive confidence boosting insights from them but the story will be instrumental in motivating you to go for your goal and move ahead with your plans. If this still seems to falter, get training or education.

Oftentimes, not knowing how or where to start is frustrating. Knowledge is power. Having a clear understanding of how and where to start is empowering and it will provide the extra drive needed to hit the mark you are aiming at and follow it through.

Having enumerated all these tips and tricks to attain self-motivation, but still you seem to feel lacking that much needed drive, there is one last thing that you must try.

Whatever it is that you have been meaning to do, or wanting to achieve, JUST DO IT! Keep on aiming high and go for it! Actually getting your hands dirty best solves the problem of motivation.

 By “forcing” yourself to just do it, your momentum will pick up gradually as you go along and before you know it you have finished the task or have finally achieved your goal. Divide and conquer is the key.

Break down the apparently unattainable activity to small doable steps. Not only does it become less overwhelming, but seeing the "in the meantime" results will further your confidence that it can indeed be done.

Lack of motivation happens to us all, but if you do not encourage yourself to accept opportunities and be challenged, no one else will. It is most important to keep your eye on the goal, find ways to keep going, and in no time, you shall reap its benefits.

And if at the beginning you were just doing it for the material reward, you will also learn to realize that the fulfillment, satisfaction and self-achievement you derive from reaching your goal is a much enjoyable high that will keep the drive within constantly burning.

Women Workshops – What You Want To See What’s Inside And How It Works

Self-esteem is a core identity issue, essential to personal validation and our ability to experience joy.

Once achieved, it comes from the inside out. But it is assaulted or stunted from the outside in. A woman with low self-esteem does not feel good about herself because she has absorbed negative messages about women from the culture and/or relationships.

The reign of youth, beauty and thinness in our society dooms every woman to eventual failure. Women's magazines, starting with the teenage market, program them to focus all their efforts on their appearance.

Many girls learn, by age 12, to drop formerly enjoyable activities in favor of the beauty treadmill leading to nowhere.

 They become fanatical about diets. They munch, like rabbits, on leaves without salad dressing, jog in ice storms, and swear they love it! Ads abound for cosmetic surgery, enticing us to "repair" our aging bodies, as if the natural process of aging were an accident or a disease. Yet with all this effort, they still never feel like they are good enough.

A workshop a set of activities designed to promote learning, discussion and feedback about a topic or event, you have achieve this with the traditional get together workshop, but online, all you need to do it logon to find other peoples views and suggestions about their life changing ways into a better self.

Get better everyday

Plan to do one thing that will help you improves physically, intellectually, emotionally, even spiritually.

  Making just one change for the better will boost your attitude from the inside out. You can actually chose what you want to change in this category first. Things you do most are the ones you need to focus on. A simple task wont take that long.

Little things add up

It's amazing, really. The seemingly meaningless things you do for yourself may not have immediate results, but after just a short period of time they'll have you looking and feeling better.  So add those bubbles to your bath, make sure you eat your vegetables, get enough sleep, think of doing something nice when you have nothing to do, and the results will be worth it.

Mirrors don’t lie

Catty acquaintances can.  Well-meaning friends might out of kindness or fear of hurting the friendship, but if you've got spinach in your teeth, your mirror will point it out.

 These things can be bothersome when you thought you were in your best but end up like this, so keep in mind about how to look best every time and enjoy its benefits.

Just go

If you just can't get rid of that cowlick in your hair, that pimple on your nose, or those extra three pounds from yesterday's buffet, just throw some gel in you hair, conceal that pimple the best you can, and wear something that's not too clingy.


To get that attitude going the right way, you need to appreciate your face and body for what it is. It may be unrealistic to tell you to love it, but you certainly shouldn't hate it.  

You definitely need to value what life has thrown you.  That's easier said than done in this society of model adulation and unrealistic standards.

If you take a look at any success story and grasp the one element of similarity between them, you'll notice that virtually every self-made, successful person has this one super-important object of success in their mind- a burning desire to succeed.  

What counts is your frame of mind. Age, location, ethnic origin, gender, or any other individuality have absolutely no part in your attitude to become what you desire.

How do you choose the right MLM software for you?

With the many MLM software out there already, how do you choose the one that is right for you?

Choose a reputable vendor.

There are many fly-by-night software companies that make many claims of experience, know how and MLM software gadgetry. Unless you are willing to put your business at risk, choose a vendor that has a proven track record.

Track records are built over many years of working with Direct Selling companies, not just selling a software package a few times.

Check out at least six references. Remember that vendors will be eager to provide only their best references. You might be surprised to find a different story when you call companies not included in the reference list.

Visit the MLM software company's office.

You not only choose the MLM software but also choose the vendor's support services. If the vendor is not able to provide support services acceptably, what will you do when you need to change your compensation plan or add a new input field to the order entry screen?

Remember that there is only one constant among all MLM companies; they constantly change things. And your MLM software will need to be changed as well.

At the vendor's office, meet the vendor's people that will service you. See what kind of people they are and how long they have worked for the vendor. Be willing to pay for experience and competence. You are paying far less in the long run.

Avoid small MLM software companies.

Small software companies, to compete with larger established firms, must offer software at bargain prices. This often puts them on shaky financial ground during their most critical years.

Companies that are trying to save money by purchasing an MLM software from these small software houses find themselves virtually abandoned later on when they need assistance. 

The problem is that servicing one highly successful client can consume virtually all of the human resources of a small software company leaving the other clients out in the cold.

The more deadly problem is that smaller companies tend to go out of business without warning. If you value your business, stay away from the small vendors and stick to those with staying power and track records.

Buy an MLM software package that allows you to create your own reports.

Many packages force you to live only with those reports they put on the menus. Managers must resort to running large reports to answer small questions or concerns instead of small exception reports on demand. Small exception reports can be reviewed quickly and accurately.

Compare features.

MLM software is designed to handle specific business issues and often has a great deal of difficulty dealing with matters outside the original design. It's difficult to force a software to do things it was never intended to do.

Wise computer buyers compare features and capabilities, side by side, of one package to another. Ask the vendor which features they consider are unique to their package compared to others.

Remember that you are not just buying a computer; you are buying software, expertise, emergency support services, programming services, and starting a long-term relationship.

Choose your MLM software vendor wisely. Do not be tempted to penny pinch in the computer area. If you do, you may cripple your chances for success.

The view inside opt in MLM leads

The factors behind opt in MLM leads is to be inside, where the good stuff is located.

The situation would be like this; you outside of the opt in MLM leads industry, wanting to get in. to get the inside scoop of the leads business. If you knew what actually went on in some arenas, you may think the inside scoop looks like this picture.


How are opt in MLM leads generated?

For the most part, opt in MLM leads are generated over the Internet. 

While there is no definite study to prove this matter, it is safe to assume that 85-90% of all leads you find for sale are originated on the Internet.

There are two main reasons for this. First, the Internet is where most people are doing their research today when looking for jobs, looking for ways to make extra money, something to invest on, etc. So, why not go where the people are looking?

Second, it is the most cost effective way of generating opt in MLM leads.

Surely, a person is surfing the Internet, doing a Google search, and checking out their options for ways to make extra income. Or, sometimes the person is not even thinking about wanting more money when an online ad catches their attention and they check it out. So, they fill out a form and hit submit.

That is the basics behind online opt in MLM lead generation. Some person is out there surfing the Net. There is an online ad and a form. Filled out and submit. Then they are now a prospect waiting to be sold.

Quite a nice system. Wouldn’t we all like to receive a batch of opt in MLM leads after people had been surfing the Internet for ways of making money from home. Now you have their name, phone, and E-mail address in your hands.

But there are some variables that can make a big difference in the type of opt in MLM leads you are holding in your hands.

Incentivized opt in MLM leads.

One of the biggest problems that exists among the Internet lead generation business is the incentives that entices a person to fill out a form and submit.

If you have purchased opt in MLM leads long enough, then you have probably come across the person who did not know they were going to be contacted about a home business. Instead they thought they were going to get a new Video iPod, $10,000, or a vacation cruise.

Furthermore, as much as you can afford, enroll yourself for formal training. If you’re gifted in music, for instance, try to enroll at a music school. It will be of great help if you enroll at a formal institution that will help you excel in your area of giftedness.

So, what do you do? You go to an opt in MLM leads company and you buy a batch of leads.
The leads are $2.25 each, so you buy 50 of them for $112.50. There is a chance you may find a good prospect in there, one that will be targeted to the product or service that you are offering.

No opt in MLM lead is ever pure because you do not know what other sites the prospect has been to, filling out forms, and checking out other businesses.

However, if you are going to invest in opt in MLM leads,  it is worth a few extra minutes of research or an email or phone call to the owners; to know what kind of leads you are purchasing.

Opt in MLM leads are all about results. So go ask and test first.

For MLM Training? Get a coach!


Many people are still saddled with antiquated MLM training and ideas of how the old multilevel companies were run in the 80’s and 90’s. 

Remember that we are already in the new millennium, people.

And the trainings in MLM that we have today had already grown pass those times.

Some of the more successful marketers have the fortune to have undergone the proper MLM training to make them more profitable than others. 

What is the one secret they have learned in MLM training?
The secret is choosing a team with an experienced coach who will teach, guide and motivate you towards success.

Of course there are other factors to consider such as the financial backing of the company, timing, the compensation plan and marketing a consumable product. But if you are not properly trained and motivated during those early months you are almost doomed to failure.

But think about it. Every professional businessperson or athlete has a coach to aid in the training. Why should it be different in MLM marketing?

In MLM marketing, you can start your business for less than $500 and literally choose the coach or leader who will be training you. 

Of course this will involve doing a little background check on the team leader you choose to work with. But in the end, it will be a time worth spending.

Here are a few pointers that will help you when seeking out the “correct coach” who will assist you in your MLM training.

1. Make sure that he or she has a proven track record.

A gifted leader will also prove his or her worth in the results produced. Generally speaking, you will not rise higher than your leader, so know how high you want to reach and find a coach who can get you there.

2. Go with someone who has been training in MLM for many years.

You want a leader who will be like the northern star; bright and steady. Those who are
successful network marketers are people who stay for the long haul. Many people give up too quickly and never reap the harvest.

Choose a leader who has experienced some bumps in MLM and can now be selective in choosing a company that is most likely to remain out of the MLM graveyard.

3. Find someone who knows how to market.

Network marketing is just that: marketing through networking. An essential part of the equation therefore is the effective marketing of your business. 

Marketing can eat up a small budget very quickly. Therefore, you must learn from the MLM training works from what does not work so that you can use your advertising dollars most effectively.

The name of the game is maximum returns for your money. Leverage is the whole idea behind network marketing. This translates into small effort and great gain.

Find someone who can train you on how to use MLM tools such as teleconferencing, voicemail, direct mail, the Internet and broadcast media. This is a business so you have to treat it like one.

4. Find someone who continuously studies the industry.

Anyone who claims to be a professional will subscribe to magazines in his area of expertise, attend seminars to keep abreast of what’s happening and keep his MLM training pulse on the industry.

Choose wisely. The right opportunity and company may be the vehicle to your success but an effective MLM training coach is like gas in your tank.
