The Guru Council Told Me Not To Reveal This…

Buying ebooks or manuals  that tell you how to make money will never produce a single penny until you start applying what you learn. I have the sneaking suspicion that many of the “make money” customers are frequent buyers of any ‘hot’ idea that comes down the pike, yet never actually do anything to try to earn online.

Ask yourself, how many websites have you put together? How many CPA memberships do you have? How many ad campaigns have you run? If the answer is consistently zero to these and similar questions – why do you think buying another ebook will change anything? [Read more…]

You Can’t Succeed Without…

TargetI know that in my list building manual, List Lightning; I rather briefly covered goal setting, so I’d like to go into a little more depth. If you don’t set your goals, it will be virtually impossible for you to succeed making money online with list building. This is important for you to understand.

Sit down with a piece of paper and write out what you want out of life, and what you’re willing to do in order to get what you want. You can’t hit [Read more…]

Having Photo Fun With Blogging…

Writing HandOkay – sometimes I just like to have fun. In my last post, I had a simple photo of a hand holding a pencil… let’s take a look at it… you see just an ordinary image that I picked up off the Internet… but before I used it, I loaded up my trusty Paint Shop Pro … an old version 7 that I bought many years ago and still does everything I need.

First I resized the graphic to what I wanted… [Read more…]

Traffic Sources You Should NEVER Use!

Okay – so you have your landing page set up – your money funnel is ready to go – and you’re ready to blast tons of traffic … right?

If you’ve read my book, you know I’m a big believer in tracking – you have to track your traffic, you have to know who’s opting in, you have to know who’s buying your products. And if you’ve been doing this – you’ll come to the same conclusion that I do – some traffic isn’t worth it. So here they are, the traffic sources you should NEVER use: [Read more…]

Can You Master Your Emotions?

Angry ManThe true answer for honest people is no – you can’t master your emotions… but most buying decisions are based on emotion. Think back to your last purchase… and identify what led you up to the point where you reached for your purse or wallet… And in most cases, it was emotion that led you there.

Now obviously, emotion isn’t the basis for every buying decision… I’m hungry, so I stock up at the grocery store. No emotion there… my car is low on gas, and I stop in at the gas station… so clearly, not everything is based on some emotion, but many buying decisions are.

For example: [Read more…]

Pingback Traffic – Helping Yourself By Helping Others…

Mr. TOne of the really nifty ways you can get traffic is built-in to the WordPress platform. It’s a feature known as a ‘Pingback’. The way it works is simple:

  • You make a post on your website – and you reference by URL a post on someone else’s website.
  • WordPress will now go and notify that other website that you just linked to it.
  • The other website will come back, and verify that there’s a link… then let the Webmaster know that there’s a new Pingback in the comments section to approve.

If you aren’t using Pingbacks, [Read more…]

Making Google Happy With Your Blog…

I continue to insist that SEO is not a game I need to play anymore… particularly since Google will NEVER put any of my landing pages in the top 1,000 pages or so… this means that the traffic methods I’ll be largely using have nothing in common with the sort of traffic methods that I used to use as an Amazon Affiliate.

But if you’re using your blog to enhance your list building efforts, you still want to make Google happy… watch this video to see why… [Read more…]
