Support For Windows XP To End.

Window XPMicrosoft has decided to end support for Windows XP on April 8th 2014 which means users like me and millions of others worldwide will have to change their Operating Systems.users will have to decide on the best way forward for them whether it will be another Windows OS or maybe installing a free version like Ubuntu. After this date XP will become unsafe to use as security patches etc will no longer be provided. That will mean a field day for hackers malware writers and ID thieves. However Microsoft pledged that XP users would continue with updates to its free anti virus tool Microsoft Security Essentials until July 2015.  However that will not provide sufficient protection so it’s best to move forward. Whatever next. It will be a sad day. I have used XP for many years now and was quite happy with its performance.

With the April 8th deadline approaching there are potentially 30% of computers still running XP, not only that security experts have warned that 95% of the world’s cash machines still run versions of XP. That means one thing, when XP is switched off……..ooops. Maybe they will change their minds.In the UK the NHS and HMRC are also running XP. Could be a shambles on the way. However, there are companies who will continue to support XP. Google Chrome will continue to receive updates. There are others who will continue to release security updates with Kaspersky pledging to support until 2018. I think I’ll upgrade. I hope my machine is up up to the task of a newer version of Windows, 7 it is.

This is only the start. 🙁 With a new OS you’ll have to back up your files before anything else. Check out this video:

I hope that will help you to transfer your files before installing your new OS whatever that might be. Another good idea is to make a Disk Image in case your machine throws a wobbly and you can restore to exactly the way it was. This is something I’m not very good at. There are several free image back up tools.If you go to this website which is one of the best:

http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx

Here is another video by the same chap to help you sort out a disk image.

Finally you will have to transfer your files to your new Operating System. If you are moving to a newer version Microsoft has a handy tool that makes life that little easier, it’s called Windows Easy Transfer, which you won’t find with XP but does come with Windows 7 & 8. I will now find another video to show you how to transfer:

I hope that has helped you somewhat. Good luck with your new OS. If you are unsure of how to do anything explained in these videos go and see someone who does, like me probably… Baarrrryyyy.

Looking Back……….1998

 

Having had no internet connection for nearly 5 days I looked back to 1998 when I got my first computer….for FREE. I was in my last 14 months or so when I would finish my time in the Royal Navy. I had been desperate for a computer since they came on sale. I couldn’t wait until I left the RN and could get a top notch machine when I received my pay off. How did I do it? Well, if you served 12 years or longer the Navy would put you through any course you wanted anywhere, and I believe at that time they would send you abroad to do any course, within reason of course, pardon the pun.

I chose to do a Computer Maintenance course. Four weeks in a college down in Southend on Sea, South of England. All in all the total cost, including 4 weeks accommodation, was approx £2200. I enjoyed the course got City & Guilds and the computer to take home. In fact it was a 12 or 18 month course whittled down to 4 weeks. Don’t get me wrong some stuff went way over my head. I had no intention of ever going into Computer Maintenance; I was there for the computer. I always remember upgrading RAM from 32 to 64. Look how far we have come in 15 years. I went home happy with a brand new computer. We used the computer as part of the course, taking it apart, all the innards on the desk and then start up the machine. Yeah, enjoyed.

Couldn’t wait to get home, set it all up. Next thing was internet connection, the old dial up. Memories, “Get of the internet, I want to use the phone”, used to get that on occassion…lol. Nowadays, not a problem. I remember a couple of years later the computer was getting a bit haggard. I was reading a copy of PC Answers where if you wrote in and explained your PC problem, the magazine would arrange to pick up your machine take it to their offices, get it sorted and would appear in the next issue. I sent an email and woe and behold they did as promised. I had a mention in the next issue. I sent the magazine to a friend so he could have a look and I lost touch with him…lol. Never mind.

The internet was a new experience, not just to me but to a lot of people. I always wanted to work for myself. I signed up to Tradedoubler but couldn’t fathom how it all worked. I signed up to eBay in 2002. Didn’t do anything then either. I had tried to do something online, signed up to a few things on how to make money, nothing was working. In 2008 I came across the Rich Jerk, had that name for a reason. I signed up, received a free WP blog, all set up. My domain: http://www.liveyourlifelongdream.com. I had to pay $140 approx for 12 months hosting. This was exciting. It was the first time I saw video tutorials, good ones they were. I learned quite a lot watching those tutorials. After 12 months and not a penny and the hosting expired, that was that one out the window.

I kept getting the usual emails, nothing of much value, until I came across  an email from Dave Nicholson. I read and signed up to his newsletters and after a while I bought an ebook site, http://www.ebookmall.co.uk. By this time, I was getting nervous and excited. After paying I got my download, you know the compressed file and the instructions. Oh no!! What do I do now? Upload to your domain, didn’t have a clue. I contacted Dave who uploaded everything for me. I signed up to D9 and bought my domain through them… That was me on the way. Didn’t earn anything, I was still a little confused by it all, but a learning curve. Through Dave I got to know John Thornhill. I have purchased a lot of John’s products the first being, How To Profit From PLR. This was an excellent product, great videos to learn from. Over the next few years I have bought many a product from many marketers, all of them excellent products. I have only ever once asked for a refund. My problem was too many shiny objects and not enough learning. I have learned quite a lot but not put too much to any use.

I signed up to John’s Masterclass but had to opt out after a few weeks due to lack of funding. Saying that John was good enough to let me pay monthly rather than fortnightly, but did have to let go. Saying that I built my first blog watching John’s videos, opt in form etc etc, where after a couple of weeks got my first subscriber, John’s report ‘Why you’ll Never Succeed Online’ was the ‘bait’. I’m sure there are thousands of John’s report out in cyberspace. I also learnt a lot about uploading, images etc. It was about the end of 2010 I received my first affiliate sale. I was chuffed and have had a few after that. I even had the honour of being on John’s leader board, made 10th place on day 1 with 1 sale…lol. To say I was chuffed is an understatement. He told me he noticed my name under those who had 1 sale. Thanks for that John, my name in lights…

I haven’t had much success in IM but not to say I don’t enjoy it, I do. I go through phases. For nearly 2 years I have been selling vintage prints on eBay. I got into this niche through Stuart Turnbull, with his Prints Make Profits. This is a very good way to get started online or if you want to sell on eBay. http://www.print-sorcery.com. Stuart is very successful selling on eBay and  his reports on how he finds classic prints to sell online. Stuart is an expert on eBay. If you are interested in selling vintage prints, click on the bove link and learn more about it. You have very little start up costs.

One of my problems is mindset; I keep going from one project to the next without finishing the one I was on.

On Saturday the 19th October I received my first cheque from Clickbank for $178.00, proud as punch. Unfortunately it will take 6 weeks to clear but now hoping there will be more in the future. Need a refresher for Aweber, been that long since I posted to my subscribers, all 15 of them. Better send them some freebies.

I would like to thank everyone who has been good to me; you all know who you are. Well, I’ll finish now and post this as my Internet is back online.

2013…The Latest

I haven’t posted on here since the 1st of May. That’s pretty ridiculous actually, I am not impressed with myself. Well, what can I say about 2013 so far. Not much I’m afraid. I’m still selling on eBay although the last couple of months has been pretty poor to be honest. However, I kept being told that the summer months are usually quiet on eBay with people going on their holidays, kids off school, BBQ’s etc. I guess eBay is not on people’s mind especially with the sort of products I sell, which is Vintage Prints..yes, I get a few sales. Folk like that sort of thing. I usually matt/mount them and put a cover at the back and then they are ready for the customer to frame. recently I haven’t been doing that. is that a reason for people not to buy the prints. I don’t think. Some people would rather do it themselves. For those who would like to go into this niche have a look at PRINT SORCERY, you can do this as a hobby and earn a part time income or eventually you can go and do this full time.

I was meant to have started a product in January, haven’t got that off the ground as of yet, got the idea but it’s the starting process. I hope to get that underway very soon, honest. I will start to gather information and do a little research. I will also use One Month Mentor as a guide which will help me as I go along. One Month Mentor is a 30 day guide on how to create a product starting from the very beginning on how to get your domain name, hosting etc. I don’t have to go that far back. Another product I will use to help is Product Development Control which helps with Sales Pages, Download Pages amongst other things.

I haven’t really got much else to say at the moment but will be back more often with information and let you know how I’m getting on. Please leave a comment if you so wish and let me know what you think of this blog.

Marketing Miniclasses

Mandy & SteveI was recently reading a post on Barry Well’s blog. The post was about Mini Masterclass and after reading the post you were asked to leave a comment and 2 post would be picked by Barry and the winners woul get access to Marketing Masterclass. Am I glad that I did? I am. Barry picked me as one of the winners and let me tell you what a wonderful membership site this is.

I spent some time going through the site navigating my way around and getting used to where everything is situated. When you first log in you come to the home page. On here you will find five options:

Start Here: Five videos to get you going. First one is a quick tour of the site, then you are shown how to set up your Google Plus account if you haven’t already got one. Next, you are shown how to access the Facebook Group of MM. You are also shown how to leave a comment. This is different to how you normally leave a comment. The last two videos are a tour of the Forum and Chat Room. I am sure that will get you buzzing. Next…

Miniclasses: The first part to this is Blogging. There are 11 videos in total to watch from Basic Blogging tips down to Guest Posting. There are loads here for you to take on board. This will help with if you are new to blogging, even I have learnt something from this and I have been blogging for four plus years now.

We now move to the next part, Profit From Plr. If you use plr on a regular basis then this is for you. Profit From Plr by John Thornhill is one of the best products on the market. First video is an introduction by John. After that you get approx 30 videos starting with how to choose a niche all the way to writing your sales page. Yes, you pick your niche, choose a product and then you change that product to suit you..and voila, a new product…yours. PFP will help you no bounds.

Flipping Websites. This is something I would like to get involved in. What is Flipping. Well, it’s where you set up or buy a website, improve the site to make it more valuable then and only  then sell for a profit. Here you have 10 videos, with an introduction video, then shows how to set up your site, with niche research, keyword, rebranding etc. Follow the videos and you cannot go wrong.

Hope you’re getting excited. Before you any further you will be shown all about Facebook Ads, Pinterest and how to create graphics using Gimp, which is a FREE tool.

WordPress. Have you got your own blog? If not, fear not. You will be shown from start to finish on how to start your own blog. Everything is taken care of:

  • Before We Get To WordPress.
  • Getting Started.
  • Adding Cool Stuff.
  • Maintenance & Security.
  • Plug Ins.
  • Themes.
  • Security.
  • Multi Site Feature.
  • Custom Corner.
  • Extras & Other Stuff.
  • Security.

Hopefully by now you should be getting excited. If you are a newbie, this is for you. By the way there is more. There are extras for you. You will receive FREE REPORTS, FREE GRAPHICS and you will to get interviews from other marketers which will be in the members area for you to listen to at your convenience and last you will be able to read case studies from members who have succeeded online.

There is a chat room and forum available. You can mingle with fellow members and chat about, well, whatever basically. How you getting on, help each other etc. I will remind you that it is very important to help your fellow member, that is very important. That is all I have to say about Marketing Miniclasses.

Have I anything negative to say about Marketing Miniclasses? Not at the moment. There is still material being added to. It shouldn’t stop anyone starting and following what is being taught. You don’t want to much material at the same time. If a newbie, get started, little by little, get your blog up and running. Good luck to one and all.

Well done to Mandy and Steve. An excellent product.

Why Not Start With eBay!

Old Christmas

My First Post Of 2013

Happy and Prosperous 2013. What am I going to be up to this year. Well, I have decided to concentrate on eBay a lot more this year. In between that I have one or two other projects going on. As some of you may know I sell vintage prints on eBay, original prints from the 1800’s and early 1900’s. I have been selling these for just over a year. I have had good results and not so good. Actually, I have realised that about the same time last year I had a good number of sales and started to dwindle around June July time. I thought that after the Summer break it would pick up again. It didn’t really, the odd sale here and there. What I ahve found is that since 19th January until today, 22nd January I have sold three prints and one other when the auction ends this week. That is excellent. The above print is typical of what I am selling. The prints were taken from a book, “Old Christmas” by Washington Irving, illustrated in colour by Cecil Aldin. I will be concentrating on this niche for the next few months. If last year is anything to go by I will continue to sell for the next few months and see where it takes me. Selling vintage prints can be a lucrative niche.

Stuart Turnbull

a very successful marketer got me into the  selling prints niche. I bought one of his products, Print Sorcery, which shows you step by step how to go about it. It’s very interesting. I learnt a lot about eBay, things I wouldn’t have had a clue about beforehand. He introduced me to other sites and software which makes things a lot easier. Stuarts way of teaching is easy to understand and easy to follow. If I have a problem I usually contact him on Skype. All I can say is if you sell on eBay this is an extra income stream. It will help you get started. You are guaranteed a little income, might not be much but can help towards, say Aweber or buy a domain or just help you on your way. A lot of the great marketers started on eBay and that is how they have moved on. That’s about it at the moment about vintage prints. Here is another print.Old Christmas Hope you like them. If you want to have a look at some other prints my eBay username is: planetscotiaprints. Between now and probably June and July there will be prints listed unless anything untoward happens. I research often for new books with vintage plates. There is enough books out there that will probably last a lifetime. I am glad that I found this niche selling vintage prints. Another thing, it’s not only on eBay you sell these prints. There are other sites you can sell on as well. Rememeber you have to scan the original prints, you could also sell re prints or use sites like Zazzle and etsy. The sky is the limit.

Steve Poke

Another marketer who sells his wares on eBay. Steve uses Public Domain in a different way. Steve found a way to use PD to his advantage and came out with this amazing product $50 a Day Auction Challenge. When I watched the videos from Steve I couldn’t believe how easy it could be to earn money using his methods. After purchase, with the exception of a couple of software you need this will cost you next to nothing. You will have ebay and paypal fees but apart from that, nothing much. Steve researches the Public Domain for all types of material, puts it all together, burns onto cd/dvd, inserts into a plastic folder or cd/dvd case and lists on eBay. How easy is that. I have mentioned two very
successful marketers who are both making a good living. I am not sure about Steve but Stuart is doing IM full time.50adaybox I recoomend eBay if you are beginning out in Internet Marketing. You will learn, earn and move on to bigger and better things eventually. But, eBay can be a good earner, if nothing else you can earn extra income.

I purchased Steve’s Fifty Dollars a Day about 14 months ago but I didn’t follow on with it. I have watched most of the videos and will soon begin to put products together. Instead of doing all the burning etc you can outsource to Kunaki. They will do that for you. Saying that half the fun is putting it all together. I’m sure you could do the first few.

I hope you enjoyed this post and do please leave a comment, good or bad. Good luck in your marketing business and all the success for 2013. Enjoy.

Happy & Prosperous New Year

Hello bloggers and friends and marleters. Here’s hoping that you all have a Happy & Prosperous New Year. I have decided that in the first instance will endeavour to finish any project I didn’t in 2012. Afterwards I will carry on selling prints on eBay. I am also going to engage in Public Domain materials. I am following a chap who is getting regular income from selling PD material. Let’s see how that goes….shall we.

I am looking forward to the launch coming in January. What I am looking for is what bonuses marketers are going to offer. Not that I am going to purchase anything……I did say in a previous post that I would limit myself but won’t be buying many products, if any. If I do I will keep tabs on them and if they’re of good quality.

Short post this time. Will be back in the new Year with another. Promise I will have more posts in 2013. Have a safe and Happy Hogmanay.

My 2012 Purchases

For this post I decided to check out the products I bought in 2012. Not all products are mentioned, probably because I deleted the receipt. So here goes folks.  I am not saying that I should or should not have bought these products or that any of these were or were not a waste of money. In fact they are all good products, some better than others. There were one or two bought twice, why, to get a bonus I was looking to get. Is that daft or what, or is it reasonable that to buy a product twice because the bonuses were good. Well, one of the bonuses was the marketer was giving away his prize money to those that bought the product through his link. I never got my share, I sent in my receipt but I was probably too late. That’s the way the cookie crumbles, win some, lose some. Go to Dan Sumner’s Blog and see what his take is on buying more the same product more than once for decent bonuses.

I can say that some of these products have only seen the light of day a couple of times. I suppose that could be seen as a waste of money. Could I be seen as a hoarder..?lol, I have been renowned to keep stuff I don’t really need. “I might need it one day.” Well, you never know when that time will come about. I will now list the items I bought. The total approximately was $287.73. Had to convert some of the prices so give or take.

Well folks that’s just about it. I did buy into a membership in December but will be cancelling that shortly. I will now list the products I have bought in the last 3years. I think I’ll be able to list most of them. I could go back a wee bit longer but  not worth what I bought. I can’t remember how but I came across Dave Nicholson but I did and bought Your Software Website and this is my version: ebookmall . From then on in no particular order:

Profit From Plr Can get as a WSO

One Month Mentor

30 Day Traffic

Pieces Make Profits

Print Sorcery

JT Masterclass Trial

Multi Profit Monthly  Month 7 you are given a free product to promote.

 

That’s it folks. I have missed out some products. I think that’s more than enough, don’t you think. What do you guys and gals think. Shiny object syndrome? Can’t help it syndrome? Is the best way forward unsubscribing from these marketers so as not to be tempted. I don’t know. I have started unsubscribing. If I don’t keep up with emails I get inundated. I sign up to a free report, enter email etc. Another mailing added to. I will continue to unsubscribe from a lot of marketers. The exception to the rule is the ones I want to keep. Saying that subscribed to same marketers more than once, could reduce that as well.

I know the ones I will keep as I am sure any readers will know who they want to hold on to. You have to be faithful as these are the guys that are helping you along the path to, hopefully success. What I would recommend pick the six marketers that help you the most, not with freebies but actually get stuck in when you are pulling your hair out. Recently I was stuck. I was talking to a certain gentleman about my problem. He says, “Don’t worry; I’ll shoot you a video.” He’s on my Christmas card list…for next year…lol. I was so grateful.

Another thought to ponder over. How many emails do you get from marketers promoting the same product? Quite a few, I know. I could name you a dozen in seconds. Do you get hacked off with all these emails? I did but now when you get the emails you usually know by the title what the product is as you have received so many. I usually just delete without opening….sorry people.

In 2013 I will change my mindset and move on. I have said that before but I need to otherwise I will have more products than you can shake a hairy stick at. I know there are a couple of launches looming, Thornhill, Nicholson, Cheney and Martin in January. I cannot wait for that launch to see the product. Be Strong Donald, Be Strong. I’ll guarantee there will be strong bonuses that will be hard to knockback. That mindset is changing. In the last few launches marketers are offering unbelievable bonuses to buy through their link whether you are going to use the product or not. You end up with tons of products and bonuses and a Hard Drive that’s bursting to the gunnels.

There are also prizes for affiliates which is a great incentive. I have had the pleasure of making a leader board on a product I was promoting for John Thornhill. It was Day 1 and I made No. 10 with 1 sale. Was I chuffed or what. I took a photo and I have that image stored somewhere on my Hard Drive.

I’m off. Hope you enjoyed this post and not too long. Please feel free to leave a comment.

Aweber And Why I Love It.

Why do I love Aweber?  I have been with Aweber quite some time now, 2 years in fact. I have very little subscribers but still decided to stay where I am, and I am glad that I have done. I tried one free one but none will come any close to Aweber. I was following a video from Dan Sumner blog on adding an opt in form to your blog. I managed Part 1 ok. Dan supplied the graphics and ebooks etc. I followed the videos to the letter and completed with success. I have done this before but still need to watch a video to do it.

I had skipped video 2 on how to add a pop over. You set it up so when you visit a site the popover will appear after a few seconds. Anyway, starting watching the video and everything was going ok, followed what Dan was doing, pausing the video when required etc etc. I had to log in to Aweber, click on the list I needed for the popover, uploaded the graphic and then I got stuck. My graphic never_succeedhad name and email fields. The name field on Aweber cannot be deleted. This is what I got when I had completed this part. As you can see I have 2 name/email fields. Did look a tad stupid. I then tried to move the graphic where the Aweber name fields were to no avail. the graphic kept popping back up. I contacted Dan, Dan was not available so I contacted Aweber direct to see if they could help. I got a reply very soon after which read:

Hey Don,

Thanks for contacting AWeber support!
Nothing wrong with you but you’ve picked
a more advance use of our web form generator.

Since you’re image already had fields on it,
as part of the images it would make it really
difficult to line them up with your AWeber
fields for name and email.

So! I went ahead and cleaned that image up
and remove the fields there so that you could
use your AWeber one’s on their own.

I’ve created you a web form on donaldmacleodbl
saved as support copy with this all set up for you.
This wasn’t covered in the video so don’t beat yourself up!

Please check it out and let me know if that was
what you were looking for!

If you have any problems or need anything changed up
please don’t hesitate to ask!

Happy Holidays!

I asked her what she did to fix it by using a photo programme to clean the graphic by removing the name fields. She then uploaded to a site to create a direct link. Here is her reply:

Hey Don,

Sounds like a good time!

I’ll outline the steps below:

1. I used a photo program to erase out the
name and email from the photo and used
the following clean version after uploading it
to imgur.com to create a direct link

http://i.imgur.com/dGE6j.jpg

2. I created a new form and deleted the header and footer and cleared
out the “Email Privacy” and “Powered by AWeber”. Then I used the drop
down menu on the left hand side to choose Body and used the image
above as the background image for the body and then adjusted the
name and email fields using padding under the advanced tab found on
the right hand side. Check out the screen shot below:

http://i.imgur.com/12BHw.png

And that was it!

I hope that helps but if anything is unclear please don’t hesitate
to ask, I’m happy to help!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

I have to thank Aweber for their excellent service. I had the cheek to ask if she could do the same with another opt in form. It was no problem, she asked me to send the graphic and she fixed it for me. with the image that appears on the main page I need to add the submit button. I think I can manage that one myself. The last reply I received from Aweber.

Hey Donald,

Thanks for sending that over!
I’ve created that web form for you
under the connectebay as “Ebay Form”.

And that is AWesome and very flattering! Glad
to hear that you’ve been happy with the support
we’re providing!

If there is anything else I can help you with
please don’t hesitate to ask, I’m happy to do so!

Regards,

I reckon Aweber is the way to go. Worth the $19.95pm. Totally happy with the way they gave support. I hope this might be able to assist someone somewhere. That’s it folks.

Help When Needed

I started this caper in 1999, just dabbling. I tried a few things but didn’t really interest me. I was just happy to have had my first computer back then. It was probably 2008 I realised there was something. Again I just dabbled. I came across the Rich jerk, heard of him? I got a free website and paid over $100 for hosting. I learnt about links etc and adding your affiliate links to the site. But apart from that nothing happened.I bought my first domain then, liveyourlifelongdream.com. After the 12 months the hosting expired, I didn’t renew.I then bought a domain, getmeanmuscles.com. Don’t ask me why, it certainly is not me that’s for sure.

I can’t remember how I came across Dave Nicholson. I bought the software website of him. I then bought another domain for ebook site and hosting from D9. It was through dave I came across John Thornhill about three and a half years ago. The first product I bought from John was Profit from Plr. I watched every single video and did nothing. I was ‘frightened’ of the product creation. I did create some sort of product. John suggested to use as a freebie but I knew myself what to with it… I need not have worried I had a HDD crash…a fatal one at that. I do believe I might have burnt a copy onto disc…let’s leave that one there shall we.

Over the next couple of years I have been following John, Dave, Stuart Turnbull, Dan Sumner, Barry Wells, Paula Brett,Dan Thompson, looking after D9 with Paula, Randy and a few others. All these guys help me and a number of others I am sure to get ahead and ensure they get the training and confidence to get ahead.

Over the last few years I have purchased quite a number of products, the shiny objects people call them. I have to admit that earlier in this game I did think about products as being  shiny objects but I have moved on from that. I don’t think I have bought a product that I was not happy with. I did ask for a refund once, don’t think I had the product 10 minutes when I asked for the refund. I have been tempted for some, not because the product was of no use but the fact that I probably didn’t need it.

You always get the guarantee with products which is brilliant but I think most people wouldn’t or couldn’t be bothered about the hassle of asking for a refund. Again, there has been two or three times that I was going to ask for a refund but couldn’t get round to looking out the receipt or whatever else I had to do.

I think I have digressed a little. That’s it for now. I have another post to finish, started it last week. A different subject. Take care you guys.

Remember, when you need HELP these Marketers will assist you. One thing though, always help someone else if they require it. Look after your list and they will be there for you.

Barry Wells

I recently was reading a post on Barry Well’s Blog. It is all about blogghopping where you go to someon’s blog leave a message, a message of usefulness. You leave a message that is useful to that person and his readers. You then leave your details and wait for a reply from the owner of that blog. That way you get other bloggers stopping by and if they like your contents they leave a messsage for you and so on and so forth.

Anyway, I was having a peruse at Barry’s Blog when I noticed 2 x2 banners ads, of the same size together, all regimented, in place. Wow, looks good. How did Barry do that?? There was only one way to find out….ask Barry. I did and he explained it to me. I went off to try out what Barry had told me and was totally confused. I went to Barry and conceded defeat. “Barry” I said, I am completely baffled. Barry then suggested to me he would make a video on how to do it. I was gobsmacked, didn’t know what to say and hurriedly thanked him for his kindness. He said it would take a few days before he completed it. Here’s the video for anyone wanting to do the same sort of scenario.

I was impressed with Barry’s attitude towards other marketers that are trying to make it at Internet Marketing. Now that I have mentioned Barry in a post I intend to write about other IM’ers that have helped me and others. I would never have known how to do that particular ‘chore’ if Barry had not mentioned it. You could say, Google or Youtube it which is fair enough. Could still be searching. At the end of the day there is no harm in asking. You can always say NO.

I have to say when I tried this first time I made an ass of it. At the time of writing as you can see I haven’t completed it yet. Getting ready for my second attempt. Please leave a comment. I hope that anyone who reads this and finds the video useful please let me know.
