Free List Building Report

I hope you all had a good Christmas. I thought I would send a quick e mail about List Building. We all know that you need a mailing list for your online business. Most people now don’y use Yellow pages or any other phone books. They will use an online search engine to find what they want. Just imagine, looking up yellow pages. you go to the index at the back, find the subject and go to the page you want. Why not go online and enter a couple of words into a search engine. “Bob’s your uncle”, you end up with thousands of results if not millions.

So, you need to start focussing now on how to build your list. A list that can earn you hundreds and maybe thousands of dollars per month. If you’re not sure on how to start building your list then you need to FIND OUT RIGHT NOW.

Internet Marketer Paul Hooper did just that and he managed to take his list from 729 to 1960 subscribers in 1 month. That’s not bad going, is it? Just imagine 1231 opt ins in the space of 31 days. Paul was so impressed that Paul documented all his methods into a report. He is giving this report away for

The Year That’s Coming To An End, 2010

This year was a slight improvement on last year. One of the first things I did was sign up to Resell Rights Weekly. A free to join site, Resell Rights Weekly gives you free material to help you with your Internet Marketing, from videos, articles plr material. Have a look and see for yourself. You can have a 7 days trial for $1. After the weeks trial you can upgrade for $19.95 per month or stay as a free member. You can join the forum where members help you along to get where you want. There are 5000 members, so you be sure of very good advice.

There were times this year that I didn’t do much in moving forward, not as much as I would have liked. Probably spending too much times on forums and Facebook, Twitter. I did do the odd research but not enough. I intend to change all that in 2011. PLANNING is vital. Plan what you are going to do and stick to it.

They say you need a list, and you cannot build a list without an autoresponder. The best around, in my opinion is Aweber.  There are free autoresponders. I signed up to a free one but couldn’t work it.I think paid ones are better, you get better suport. With Aweber the support you get is second to none. There is live chat if you have a problem and they will help you there and then. There are also videos to help you with your e mail broadcasts. You get one month for £1 then $19.95 per month.

In September I signed up to John Thornhills Masterclass. A 36 week course showing you how to succeed online. I am at Week 11 at the moment which is Product creation. I have put that on hold until the New Year. You can have a 28 Day Trial for $4.95. That’s what I did, signed up for the trial and after signed up for the course. John Thornhill has had many Students signing up for this course, many who are very, very successful.  One of these students is Steve King. Click on the link and watch the video. Take Stuart Turnbull, another student from John’s Masterclass. Watch his video, recorded while he was at the beach.

I watched these videos with envy. Being able to work when, and where you like. Maybe one day I’ll be able to do that, and I’m sure you would love to be in the same shoes. So, what are you going to do about it. Struggle or at the very least try something. If you can afford a few hours a week to get you Marketing of to a good start.

Whatever you decide, good luck for 2011.

TAC Campaign “Everybody Hurts”

I thought that seeing the time of year I would put this video onto my blog. It’s a video about DRINK/DRIVING and the consequences of it. This will shock you. I guess that’s the object, if this saves one life then it’s been worthwhile. think of the loss of life through DD. Families ruined forever. Here is a comment from a person who watched this:
“Every local news station should be playing this over the holidays. Especially in the US where our DWI laws can be too lax.? To think of all the lives that can be saved, especially the innocent ones. Most graphic video i’ve ever seen, but its awesome and i just played it to my 2 teenage kids who are now driving. I hope it sinks in.”

Maybe it should be shown here in the UK in the run to this time of year, shown at peak time so people can see the destruction and devastation it can cause. Watch the video and see for yourself.
Have a safe and enjoyable Xmas and New Year.

What Happened To Me!

I’ll start by asking you this question. “Is bankruptcy for you”? Have you seriously thought about going bankrupt? Is there no way out, can you do anything else. At the end of the day if that is what you do, then fine. It’s not the end of the world. Think of it as a new start. Put the past behind you and think of the future. There are pro’s and con’s about going bankrupt. There are a lot of things to think about. I am hoping by the time you read this e book you will feel a lot better about yourself. How do I know that? Well, I was, still am at this moment bankrupt, myself.

How did it all start? It started in October 2006 when my wife and I took on the lease of a Public House from a Pub Co. Initially it was a month to month contract which meant we could walk away or they could cancel our monthly contract. Initially everything going fine, we paid £200 per week rent and bought all our drinks from the Pub Co. We paid cash up front for our orders. After about 4 months they wanted us to sign a contract as soon as possible or they would be putting the “TO LET” sign back outside the pub. We thought that was pretty harsh. After all they were desperate for us to take on this pub. We had under £2000 starting with this venture.

Anyway, we signed a 5 year lease. That meant that from now they took the rent, order money etc direct from our bank account.
Unfortunately, that lasted just a few weeks. The business account started going overdrawn. After consulting my credit controller we were put back onto cash up front. Before our drinks order was released we had to pay and either fax the receipt to the Pub Co head office or scan and e mail. That was every week. Nightmare.

As the weeks and months followed we fell behind in payments to all and sundry. We also had cash flow problems. The money I was earning “today” was going out “tomorrow”. Believe it or not this lasted for about 2 years.
A year after taking on the lease we sold our house to get some capital for the business. Unfortunately, the money we made on the sale of the house disappeared in next to no time. It was a traumatic time, worrying every day. It was that bad that I didn’t answer telephone calls, didn’t open any letters for days on end. I had stopped paying the accountant after only a few months. They were charging £250 per month. I still kept doing the accounts myself. I did them on a spreadsheet and kept tally myself.

I still got the VAT returns quarterly with their estimates which were diabolical. I ignored them to. One of the worst things to happen was the debt letters kept coming by the dozen. They threatened court, shutting down the business and everything else.
At last it came to the fore. We went to the Citizen Advice Bureau for advice, of course. We talked with the Debt Adviser who advised us if that was the way we wanted to go. I gathered all our debt letters, business and personal. We made another appointment to see our adviser.

All the paperwork was left with the adviser. After a week or so we were back. As we were partners in the business we still had to go bankrupt separately. He had filled in the necessary forms which we signed. I then went to a bank and paid £100 each, the fee required, received a receipt and placed in the envelope with the desired paperwork and posted it off to the Accountant in Bankruptcy. Within a matter of weeks we were declared bankrupt.

Affiliate Promo Formula

As a respected Internet Marketer John Thornhill is sickened by the
state of the affiliate marketing industry today.

This has mostly been caused by countless launches put together by
the churn and burn syndicates who all have each others backs and
promote sub standard products, all promising easy riches for a few
clicks of a mouse.

It’s easy to see why Affiliate Marketing is getting a bad name, but
worse still it’s easy to see how any newbie affiliate could be lead
down the wrong path by copying these churn and burn tactics.

Well John has had enough and is about to put a stop to it all. He
has created an ‘Affiliate Master Plan’ and in it he details how you
can become highly successful as an affiliate without using churn
and burn tactics, he also reveals why 99% of affiliates are failing
online today.

As a marketer who has generated over 1 million dollars in sales as
an affiliate I think he’s someone you should take seriously so go
and see what he has to say.

Affiliate Promo Formula

I have nothing but admiration for John who has worked hard to get where he is today. He now helps the like of you and me to succeed to make our lives that wee bit better.

Alison MacDonald – Keep The Hope Alive

The title reflects what I am going to have a few short words and then watch the video. Alison was from the Isle of Lewis, from Back, a village about 6 miles from Stornoway. Alison went on to Aberdeen University to do her studies. She went on holiday to India and never came back. Her family still maintain she is alive. This short video was made, her father explains what happened. If this post is read please post on your blog and so on. You will get the embed code at the end of the video. Alison has been missing for nearly 30 years. Wouldn’t it be a miracle if she was found alive. Watch the video, it’s only 5 minutes long and I would hope that you could post on your blog. Remember the internet goes a long way. Maybe you have subscribers from India or know someone that does. Post on your blog.

Getting The Most Out Of Something FREE

I came across this  programme called  Free Monthly Websites.

Free Monthly Websites, in my opinion is one of those programs you either know what to do with or you don’t. I will now show you how you can get the most of it and why Free Monthly Websites is such great tool which can earn you an extra income stream to your business for a long time to come.

The Three main categories we need to concentrate on here are:

1, Selling eBooks

2, Writing articles

3, Affiliate promotions

When you first login and download your website follow the tutorials which is very easy to do and eventually get your website onto your webspace. You are presented with a very nice well designed Adsense website.

What can you do with this free website? Well to be honest the free website has duplicate content so you can rule out getting to the top of the search engine rankings, the premier websites are a different kettle of fish all together but I will get to those in a moment.

Take option 1 above ‘Selling eBooks’ if you sell eBooks especially PLR (private Label Content) conversions, you will find Free Monthly Websites have a rather large verity of websites that correspond with a lot of the PLR out there (if you are a premier member you get a bonus PLR eBook). All you need to do is upload your eBook to a convenient location on your webspace and place a few corresponding links inside your PLR eBook for example:

I have a weight loss eBook and a small paragraph saying “there are 100’s ways to lose weight which can be found in various forms from Books to television to fitness programs bla bla bla” you could not take this small paragraph and insert your Free Monthly Websites website link in a prime location for instance “there are 100’s ways to lose weight which can be found in various forms from Books to television to fitness programs the best resource I found is at www.yourfreemonthlywebsites.com/fitness_website”
Now imagine you done this to all your eBooks! Simply take a little time upload your Free Monthly Websites website to your webspace then reopen your PLR eBooks and insert the relevant hyperlink which corresponds to your website and there you have it. For about 2 hours work you have created an income stream for life. Now imagine you have 50 PLR eBooks doing the rounds on eBay or your blog. Your AdSense revenue is going to creep up and up until you are earning a very respectable income. It’s a simple case of wash rinse repeat.

Option number 2 is even easier. I know most of you will at some point, or do write articles and submit them to relevant article directories. Well why not try writing an article about one of the subjects related to Free Monthly Websites? Upload your website to a location on your webspace, place the link in your article and there you have it, submit to article directories like:

http://www.articledashboard.com/

http://www.articlebasement.com/

http://ezinearticles.com/

http://www.goarticles.com/

And another income stream will start.

The third option is a little different. Using your Free Monthly Websites affiliate link to promote the website and earn a potential 98.50 per referral. You can place your link in the websites provided for you and in the eBooks you sell and articles you write this can generate a missive earnings income of 98.50.

So with your website up on your webspace and your eBook on eBay and your articles in the article directories, you will be well on your way to earning a nice income from a free resource.

I mentioned earlier your Premier Members website. These are a fantastic resource and are worth every penny for the simple fact you receive a private label eBook and 20 articles with every Premier Membership website every month. Not only can you use the eBooks and articles in the ways I have explained, you can key word optimize your website for the search engines, change the content and make your sites as original as you like. In other words you have full edit rights. So if you imagine directing a visitor to your Premier Website via an eBook or article, they will find a fully edited site with offers and affiliate links promotions, and even an Aweber signup box (which you can integrate with a little HTML knowledge) which in turn will create more revenue and more subscribers for you.

My recommendations are if you have a few hours to spare get started with this and you will soon see a Google AdSense income. If you use the Premier Websites, you can place affiliate banners, Clickbank affiliate links and Aweber signup box on your site as well as edit all your own content via an easy edit control panel..

If you are going to move into this business, I recommend you take the Full Premier Websites Access!

Here’s a link for you:

Thank you for reading I hope you enjoyed my review. Think, another form of income, every month a free site.

Free Software

Did you know you can get FREE software that is as good as the bought version.  I will show you some and you can have a look and see for yourself.

First one coming up is:

OPEN OFFICE WRITER: An alternative to Microsoft Word, it has a long history, is now used instead of Microsft Word by many people including businesses and other large organisations around the globe. You can use the writer programme to open and save any Microsoft Word document. The menu’s work differently but will be familiar to older versions of Microsoft’s tool. Go to Open Office Writer and have a look for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

Next on the agenda is:

SCRIBUS: Is an alternative to Microsoft Publisher 2010 and in some ways more powerful. It’s not as easy as Microsoft Publisher 2010 but includes excellent help and guidance suitable for all levels of expertise. You will find some templates which will help get you started.It can create PDF files ready to send to a printer. It is also available in Linux and Mac OSX. It requires Ghostscript.

Next we have:

AVAST!HOME EDITION: Avast is probably one of the best FREE anti virus programmes around. It is easy to install and register. You can upgrade if you so wish to the paid version but the Free one should suffice.It has a comprehensive tool that checks e mails,instant messaging, web based threatss and network activity as it happens.Of course these modules can be adjusted or turned off altogether, and like any other anti virus it gets on with its job without a fuss.

Now we have:

WINDOWS LIVE MOVIE MAKER: One of Windows best hidden gems, Movie Maker 2011 is one oof the best yet. It can import and create high definition video, create DVD’s export videos to online sites and copy them to mobile devices ready to play. Worth having a look.

Last one for the day:

GIMP: An alternative to Adobe Photo Shop CS5. GIMP, the daft name is short for GNU Image Manipulation Programme. It has many advance features and shares a similar menu layout to Photoshop.There’s support for pretty much every image file format you will encounter. You can  learn advanced image editing without spending any of your hard earned cash.If you want to keep your photographs organised there are two free companion programmes, Google Picasa and Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011.

There you go folks. Free software, that are just as good a sthe paid versions. Until the next time.
