Say Goodbye To Google!

Google UpdatesGoogle has long been the online company with the biggest bite. If Google smiles on your websites, you can make a tremendously profitable lifestyle with affiliate websites. But then comes along one of their updates, Buffy, Dewey, Vince, Caffeine, Venice, Penguin, Panda… and many others… and your thousands of dollars of income drop to $50 a month…

Can A Teenager Do What You Can’t Do?

Sometimes, one of the most motivating things you can read are the stories of other people trying to do what you want to do, and succeeding despite setbacks and difficulties that you don’t face.

An Autoresponder Can Make You Rich!

The Money Is In The ListAccording to survey after survey, it takes an average of 8 visits to a website before a purchase is made. So you must be pro-active – you cannot rely on your visitor to return to your website, so offer them something of value, a free report, a correspondence course, something to convince them to give you their email address. Getting their email address is critical! Then the following 7 visits can be initiated by you, rather than by your potential customer. With a good autoresponder series of emails – you can develop a relationship with your visitors, and encourage them to purchase what you have to sell.

The Money Is In The List

Multi-Level Marketing Scams – Don’t Be A Victim!

Cat in the HatI first must confess to not having a great deal of experience with MLM – Multi-Level Marketing – I’ve been more on the fringes of it than in the middle – but I’m going to share my thoughts on the matter anyway – and you can judge for yourself.

The first thing I always ask about an Internet “make money online” program is: “What are you selling?”  For MLM, it’s not going to be a product, what you end up “selling” is the ability for other people to sell… to other people… who then can sell… to other people…  and so on.  Any “product” is almost strictly a byproduct; you’re selling “management” levels in a selling scheme.

You’re ‘Selling’ The RIGHTS For Others To Sell!

Take a hypothetical example: USA Vitamins – you are invited to join a program where [Read more…]

Smart Or A Sucker – Which One Are You?

Do You Work Dumb or Do You Work Smart?

SuckerThe average person got suckered a long ago… I know, I was one of them.  We grew up with the idea that you get hired at job, you work, and then you get paid.  You work, you get paid; you work, you get paid. Getting a job was always a prerequisite to getting paid.  Your pay is in exact proportion to the time you have invested.  Work 40 hours a week, get a full-time paycheck.  Work less, get paid less…

This is the paradigm for most people – it’s just the way things are.

You’ve been brainwashed to believe that pay is directly related to the time you spend working. [Read more…]

Make Money With Your Own Product Fast!

ResearchOkay – so you want to make money … I’ll tell you now, it’s easier with your own product.

Half of the people reading just went into a panic – you think creating your own product is hard to do … no, it’s surprisingly simple to do. And I’m going to give you a detailed step by step plan to ‘build your own’ information product right here.

Step 1. Research

The first step is to do a little forum reading… you’re going to go to a forum or two on the general niche that you’re interested in. For example, if your general interest niche is the MMO (Make Money Online) niche – then you’ll be at home on the Warrior’s Forum, or DigitalPoint Forum. What you’ll do is start making a list of threads that pose a problem in your niche, and order it by how many responses.

Don’t Make This Blogging Mistake!

Blogging ClockI have a slight problem with a lot of blogs I read… I’m looking for information that has no relevance to the date or time, yet the blog author hasn’t removed date and time information from their blog.  WHY NOT?

If you’ve looked around this site, you’ll notice that there’s no date information anywhere – you have no idea whether I wrote this particular post today, or three years ago.

Why does this matter? It’s really simple… if I stop creating new content for this site – it won’t be obvious to anyone other than regular visitors. People will continue to end up here, and read these posts – and will not be put off by a blog that’s a few years old, yet doesn’t seem to have any current activity.

Now, on many websites, dates are important to the story [Read more…]

MLM & ‘Business Opportunities’ – Avoid Like The Plague!

Let’s talk about MLM for a moment… there are many varieties of MLM – Multi-Level-Marketing … Avon, Amway, Tupperware are some very well known examples. The very first question I ask when I look at an MLM ‘opportunity’ – “What’s the Product?” And in a surprising number of cases, the product is the right to get others to do what you’re going to be doing… in other words, the ‘product’ in many cases is to get others to sell in your downline. It’s not about the product, it’s about getting other people to join under you, and do the same thing.

One of the more recent online MLM ‘opportunities’ is the Empower Network – and the real ‘opportunity’ that you’re getting is the ability to sucker other people into the same ‘opportunity’ to make money.

Does it work? [Read more…]
