"Make money online"

This "make money online" niche is a strange one in many ways and there's no doubt IM or Internet marketing as it's really known as has earned a bad name online with all the "pitchfest crap" going on from the so called gurus who cross promote each other with every launch that happens.

This is why I suggest ignoring the so called big names, they are not giving you want you really need to make money online, only their own or some cronies pitch to suck your wallet or purse dry and to get you on their email list for future pitches.

Often whatever it is they sell turns out to be useless, either because of the steep learning curve, or it's is just a tool which doesn't deliver....the problem is the promises and hype that goes with it which so often is misleading or plain lies.

Making money online does require a form of marketing, whether to people, or the search engines like google you will have to target something, someone, which one entirely depends on your niche and your money making strategy, affiliate sales, sales of own products, services, or even just using adsense.

There are several key positives and negatives to each strategy you use and it takes the right planning to decide which best fits your skills and more importantly still your audiences needs, be it people or search engines.

The simple truth is there are so many systems and strategies within the IM niche it does get a little confusing, distracting and is often a pain in the arse to get your hear around.

Internet Marking (IM) is basically marketing whatever online, there is no right thing or wrong thing to market unless you start to consider ethics, which is purely subjective to each of us.

I wouldn't want to see you get "sucked in" like happens to a lot of us, mainly through the simple fact we started to consider "how to make money online" and like a new book reader in a library starting to feel overwhelmed when we looked online for the answers.

IM gets to the point where you go to bed with your brain buzzing, wake up with IM on the brain too...it's a passion to a point.

Being new, if you are, you have a great starting point to work from as you do not have that "jaded" mindset like some of us had or have, you are like a school leaver choosing a career without the jaded view of what "work" is really like.

It's the "newbies" who the so called big names target to exploit this freshness of mind, this enthusiasm to learn to earn.

A fresh marketer is not yet jaded by these gurus, don't let it happen either.

In one sense we are all marketers, whether you agree with that or not is not really the issue as the truth we are all marketers be it online or offline, whether we like it or not...next time you see people chatting each other up in the pub, club etc, you will see it's the truth.

You market yourself throughout life, when you go for an interview, meeting, whatever, its marketing.

This is something that "gets me" with marketing, I love to learn about it etc, but hate the negative aspect attached to it due to the bad practices of some people who care only about the money and it shows when you see them at forums etc giving out plain misleading advice and in a way spreading a bad mindset relating to "making money online".

There is NO one way, no right way, wrong way to make money online.

Half the stuff we read is total bullshit really.

If you really want a crash course in marketing online and making money doing it, the one thing I could suggest is to create and sell an ebook, get buyers by promoting it using a free blog!

While there are some people who will ridicule this idea there are others who will agree it IS a great way to learn how to market anything online, and make money.

Why do this, and how to go about it?

Do you want to learn how to make money online?
Do you want to do it without spending money?

Want to have that crash course in Internet Marketing?

Let's do that then. ;o)

First...

Get your motivation lined up, what I mean by that is decide why you want to make money, is it to pay off the bills you have? Or is it to earn enough to take you on holiday?
Get a new car?

Whatever it is, that motivation will show through your work and everyone likes to see motivated efforts as apposed to just going through the motions.

Decide your topic, niche...if it's a hobby one great as they do well due to having passionate users.

Do a little researching on the topic, i.e use google and googles blog search functions to see what is already "out there" and what is already working for others.

You want to have a niche that you know has buyers etc, one way is to check the "ads" by google on these search pages as it means advertisers are spending money within the niche.

Now you should have some idea of what you can write about, you will be able to do this so much easier if you are writing about something you have knowledge of, or a passion, or an expert with.

The action steps you need to take to make money online this way are...

A tip here is to create a google account, this will be handy for way more than you think. You can use all of googles aps, i.e docs, blogger, calender, gmail, adsense, etc.

Create the ebook, (pdf) easily done free using google docs, or openoffice, or adobe acrobat if you have that already.
The ebook can be as short or long as you like, just make it worth what you wish to sell it for. :o)

Now think about the keywords you will use to sell your ebook, and use these keywords where needed, like the title page of the site, blog you will use to promote it.

Ie... your hobby may be... "Harley Davidson's" so you would use keywords like...

"maintaining harley davidsons"
"repairing harley davidsons"
"rebuilding harley davidsons"

These are keywords other people would use to type into the search engines, just like you did in the research process.

So you need also to set up a page or site to sell it from...use blogger to create a presell blog and make sure you use keywords in the title of the blog as well as the blog url...

I.e "www. harley-davidson-tips.blogspot.com" is an example with related keywords.

Now you just create a few decent tips post (400 word articles) to add to your blog using keywords where you can, in the title, first sentence, and a few times spread throughout the post content.

Add a post everyday over the first few weeks to get that ball rolling.

While doing this, you are writing and creating a pdf ebook with all your best tips, inside knowledge which you will eventually sell via the blog.

You will need to have a payment set up, using paypal is an easy way to get started on this.
Set up a payment button, and get the html code for that to add to your blog.

After creating the pdf ebook, take a few sample tips from this and create a smaller pdf to give away to your blog readers, this smaller pdf has a link to buy your main pdf ebook inside it. :o)

If you are sticking with no outlay, you can use your email to send the pdf each time someone request it, or have it set up as an auto response as can be done with googles gmail, this is not ideal really as you would end up sending it to anyone who emailed that email address you have set it up on.

Really you would want it to be instantly delivered to them an autopilot after payment and only after a payment has been made.

Do this by setting up an email autoresponder to send the ebook after payment.
This is anything would be your only outlay, used well you will build two list, one for the free pdf people and the other for those who buy the main book.

Now you have an ebook or two (if doing the smaller givaway too), a blog and it's just joining the dots now to make it all work.

On the main blog you can add the link to another page where you sell your ebook, simply create a blog page with the details of the book and put the link on the main blog sidebar.

Ie... main blog is www. harley-davidson-tips.blogspot.com

www.harley-davidson-tips-ebook.blogspot.com (the word ebook only highlighted for reference).

On this blog write about what the ebook is, ie a form of sales letter.

Add the ebook blog url to your main blog sidebar.

You can add the pdf to the first email (autoresponder) response to be sent after payment via paypal.

Now it's promoting the blog and ebook in order to get the first sale.

You could do this by joining forums and commenting on blogs in the related niche, ie, harley fan sites and blogs etc.

Another way is to write a great 500 word article with a link at the bottom pointing back to your main blog url, add this article to a few article directories bearing in mind each one will give you a good backlink so use keywords in the title, and a few through the article itself.

When you make that first sale is anybodies guess, but...

Once you have got this far you know what it really takes to make money online.

"Did you catch it?"

I hope the weekend was a good one for you.

Maybe some of you worked hard over the weekend, did you catch it?
The opportunity?

Where?

Right here on the blog, taking action using article traffic and maybe a new blog, or at least your newish blog you have been hard at work on up to now.

Grabbing the one off one way link offer to link to your choice of a good article which also has the bio box of yours on it pointing back to your blog. ;o)
This article is on your blog anyway among others you have already done.

You could have also written an article on how you write your blogs articles on "topic" with your 100% commission "article easy" book link, on a post near the one I link to... (hint: a certain yet different page, so you have bigger exposure? **) ;o)

**Any guesses? (comment below) ;o)

Opportunities are everywhere!

If I was to mention that as this is the 198th post, there is a little time to still act! ;o)

If you new you should start (after this post) on "How you start blogging" and then read up on "creating the blog" and "promoting the blog" not to mention grabbing your "one way link" which will help your blog get found faster. :o)

Give it a go and you may well have some pleasant surprises!

And why the heck should you listen to me anyway? ;o)

"Article traffic"

Writing articles is yet great another great way to gain extra traffic with the added bonus of having a longer term effect if others use your articles.

By far the best way is to use "long tail" keywords relating to your blog, site topic.

For an example lets say you have a "dog related" blog, you have tips for training, breeding and other general dog related topics.

Your general keywords may be...

Dog
Dogs
Dog training
Dog breeding
Breeding dogs
Training dogs

These are termed "short tail" in the sense they are broad search terms, these are the keywords every "dog related" site or blog will target, rightly so too. ;o)

But using longer tail keywords can gain a big advantage for you in the sense others may not target them, and you have less competition by targeting these terms.

For example...

Training dogs the right way
Dog training and breeding
Dog training for new owners
Training dogs for beginners
Training German shepherds < This could be changed for all other breeds. ;o)
Buying my first dog
Dog training at home
House training dogs
The new dog breeder

Etc... you see that these are longer terms, more in line with what people will search for too. ;o)

Writing articles that target these terms will bring in a "long tail traffic stream", meaning you get this traffic long after you do the article. ;o)

With less articles targeting the same keywords as you you have a better chance to capitalise on the traffic coming in.

You really should add articles to your plans for they are an "evergreen" form of traffic, use a good bio at the bottom of each pointing to your blog and watch the traffic build up.

Another twist for you is to capitalise on linking the articles together, so one could be linked using anchor linking as a better SEO plan for your blog traffic.

For example you do an article called "Dog training at home", which is a basic one for all dogs and dog owners, posting this to an article database, but you can have this linking to another blog post titled "Dog breeds and training" where a list of breeds of dog and training methods for each is laid out nicely for all traffic from the first article... ;o)

So your anchor link in the first article bio will be...

www. whateversitename.com/dog_breeds_and_training < that's the second articles title...

IE... an anchor link. ;o)

A post with a short blurb and a link to each breed and training article you have on the blog.

Do you think these people will click on the breed specific article you have for them?

What's more you can add affiliate links or AdSense on each post of the second articles list.

That's the way to do articles I think. :o)

If you think it's hard think again, it's made easy with the fantastic article ebook done by a friend, which is a crazy bargain and what's more, you can add a twist to the above method to gain buyers of this very book and make a profit. ;o)

How?

Do an article on how you write articles very easy on "dog training" and how other dog lovers can also start a blog on their new dog...
Have your anchor link to a post specifically teaching others how to start their "dog blog" with your ebook link at the bottom for them to get started with. ;o)

One sale and you got a great article book free!

"Instant income"

Isn't that a nice income to have?

Over the last few months there has been more chance for you to get exactly that...instant income. It's been made far easier with all the latest $7 report deals that have been made.
Jon who started it all has made a great name for himself with the scripts that the offers use, which gives YOU your instant income.

I have had a few of these reports myself, as mentioned in some of the latest post made here.
There will always be some that you will get and feel no way am I promoting that!

I been lucky enough so far in that I am not one to jump on every one that's been done, like some people do.

The ones I have got have been great, more so because I knew the people and know what they create.
Quality.

What we should ALL strive to create, it's to easy to produce crap make a fast buck...yet what of the reputation you get from that?

No thanks...

The good thing to do, as I did was to get one, then get at least ONE sale before getting the next, so I only ever spent ONE lot of $7

So...what the ones worth getting, and why should you even want to get them?

The ones I have so far are all worth getting, but more than that they are usable, no point in getting something you can't even use or do!

The first was the actual original one, this is a must because you also get the scripts as well the blueprint to succeeding with them.

The second and probably the one almost everyone who wants to make this online lark work should grab, would be the article report.

I know this is well worth the price, I mean it's solid content, 40 odd pages of it and using it will make a big difference in how well your work comes out.
Not only that, it will improve your writing flow overall.

The third one I grabbed was the mindset one, it's no coincidence this is the 3rd best selling one of all the $7 reports you can get.

Then again it's the real blueprint to your success, however you define success in your life it's your mindset that ultimately influences you.

I also grabbed another which I am trying out before I will tell you about it.

So there you have it, all of these are good ones that you can and should USE.

The beauty of these are that as soon as you grab them from the links here, you can stick your link on your blog, website, in email, whatever and you get an instant payment into your account.

So..in reality these reports have cost me...nothing!

Yes, I have sold at least one of each and got me my money back...and more!

This is the easiest and fastest way for a newbie to generate income.

Take care,

"Pump up your work input"


Once you have the ball rolling and have written a few articles, set up your blog or lens, you can then pump up your efforts in the hope of increasing your results.


The surest way to do this is just keep on doing what works, so if your articles are working well...do more of them.


If you have the proof of articles working for you, simply do an article promoting the article report itself on your blog, lens.

These are some of the fastest ways to get an income coming in, the fact these reports have 100% commission going directly to your paypal account is just the incentive you need.

You will have noticed out of all the 100% commission reports out there I have shared only a few, only those I feel are worth sharing, others I have not got myself and there is no way I will give a recommendation to something I know nothing of.

The two I feel you should ALL get are the article one and this mindset one.

I am sure there are other good ones, for now these two are really what will make it easy for you.
The first will help you create decent content, the second will help you really focus on what you should be doing.

Get cracking...pump up your work input, and pump up your profits!

"One step at a time"



Will get you ANYWHERE!

No one jumps straight to success...it takes hard work, time, learning, applying, tweaking, testing.

So much more than an ebook can tell you.

Don't make the common mistake of buying into this or that, then jumping to something else when you feel it "don't work", the truth is everything needs work, work at making things work.
Once you get ONE thing working, then move onto the next thing.
ONLY if it helps your work though, don't jump on it for the sake of jumping on it!


Nothing just happens itself.

Taking action is the key.
If you are really wanting to get moving, start with articles.

This will mean you have REAL content.

The beauty of this article report is you can add the link to your blog, lens, and get your money back and more just for sharing it.
Each article is a funnel for your traffic, have somewhere to lead that traffic though, like a blog, or a squidoo lens.

But...

One step at a time eh!

The thing is once you start taking the steps you are definately nearer to your success.
Once you have a momentum going you can jog to your success.

Till then...learn to walk one step at a time!

YOUR success awaits you!

"Making money online" Pt 2

**Continued from last post.

I asked if you recognised it...if you're involved in IM (Internet marketing), then you may well guess the "dream sellers" would have sold them the basic info I gave in the last post, with some filler fluff!

Shame on them...they got easy money, yet in this scenario, the "Harley nut" would feel let down, not knowing the "how to do" part.
There is nothing they can get from it, apart from the buzz of wanting to act on it...yep, been sold the sizzle!

Then he most likely will think less of the seller, feel ripped off!

Shame...short term profits for the seller AND a bad rep.

NOT the way you want to go.

This is exactly what is going on out there.
There is hardly anything that also shows you the "how".

Not to mention the fact the sellers of the dreams couldn't give a toss about you, they already have your money!

In this scenario what would I have done?

Well the first thing would be to grab this for the scripts, you will need them later.

I would have given them a plan of action to add to it, one they can do or learn to do.

In this case, create or edit a video just to show you ten tips on basic Harley maintenance.

"Ten tips to maintain your Harley and save service fees!"

Something like that, told him to stick it on eBay, as a limited to X amount box set of videos, relevant auction, ie Harley Davidson must be in the title, then post in the right section.

This way it's "fast boost cash" to carry on with the plan.

While the eBay auction is going, tell them to set up a simple blog at blogger.com, where you post pictures, write a bit about the pictures, post every other day at least once for the first few weeks, have the link to your blog on your eBay home page, have the blog called something related, like...

Home-built-Harley-Davidson.blogspot.com

It's clear what it's about.

Should have sold the videos and have cash coming to keep on building.

Now add other videos to blog and start building your Harley network.

The blog is up, it's simple enough for them to carry on with, post videos to it via youtube or myspace, posting a funny or viral video will help by spreading fast.

Set up a myspace page related to Harley's.

All the while there is a link back to your blog.

The first few weeks should be interesting enough to them to keep the work effort up, if you have a passion, like this person with the Harley's, it's not work...it's fun and more learning.

They should be getting a few keen hungry visitors, "fans" so to speak, "Harley fans" to be precise, a targeted market.

The next advice I would offer them is to visit Harley forums, read up on threads, see what problems and issues they talk about, you may have answers in either your head, or on a video.
Get involved in a subtle yet informative and helpful way.
Use a sig link if you are allowed pointing back to your blog.

Build relationships, you have something in common with them all.

All the plan is now is to set up "funnels" for the traffic you get and maximise it.

Next would be to set up a keyword related squidoo lens, probably the easiest site builder out there, have your blog feed linked to it, or just a normal link if feeds baffle you.

Write up a few good articles and post a few good pictures.

These should be good to keep you busy, update them often keep on reading the forums, you can resell more videos on eBay to keep cash flow coming in.

After the confidence grows and you know you will keep on keeping on...

Next would be to get a domain and hosting, domain should have related keywords, ie... Self-built-harleys.com for example.

Time to set up a site to sell you videos and other related things, ie affiliate products from Harley companies etc.

Should you know little about building a site, set it up using a template, or even using blogger or similar blogging software.

By now a month will have gone by, and you will have a few funnels of traffic set up, start getting some reasonable traffic from these as well as regular readers coming back.

You will also have started building solid relationships with "like minded people".

THAT is taking action, that is doable, that brings results.

Not so hard really, just take it one step at a time, yet start off with what's EASY.

Doing what you know and have passion for is EASY, setting up a blog is EASY.

Once you have started it will get easier and grow faster.

"Recycled Content"

So, you took my advice and grabbed one of the top $7 "reports" recently released I recommended here, articles!

You created some good content to post to one of the article database, or better to your blog or website. This is what builds your "Virtual real estate" aka "sellable businesses" up, good content.

Content is king... or at least prince!

If prince, the king could be anchoured text links...that's for another post, should you want to hear it.

But don't stop there, re-use your content as much as you can, build other uses, set up as blog content, newsletter snippet content, adword preseller content, ezine ads, etc etc...the list goes on.
Free reports to build your list, content affiliates can use to presell your products.

So many ways.

Change your mindset to realise who you REALLY are, and go for it!

Even use some of your content to create your own $7 reports, give others the big incentive to spread your work and build your list! If you have yet to get the scripts needed, go ahead and grab them when you get the $7 report.

Do you have un-used blog post, or articles?
Ones you have done, or redone from PLR that you have not used?

Content has so many benefits, it's used to get traffic, repeat traffic, links, google page rank, better search position, better authority...etc
More than I can think of.

Extend your feeder traffic by breaking down what you have to slightly create a wider section of the larger market, persuade them into narrowing into your funnel market. ;o)

Try creating a bonus viral aspect right into it.

The content you spread itself is by virtue, viral.

This is what you should be doing with all that great content you create....again you CAN create it too.

I am going to be doing just that, re-using what I create.

Less of the bollox please..

In keeping with sticking to my true self I am gonna have to start telling you what I really think, what you need to hear rather than what you want to hear, you can buy that at most hype pages if you want it.

Enough is enough, it is crazy yet you know what it is also very interesting, it wont stop!

I had enough of the crap, all sides of it and I don't believe I am the only one.

Yet the mass of contradictions, multilevel ones, ones you miss, or don't yet know about, leave a giggle inside of me, each time I notice it!

So I will share this shit with you...wise up, I am kicking myself in ways and now I maybe you will kick yourself too.

All the bashing crap, from both sides is a little bemusing, I could care less really anymore, other than seeing it for what it is, a mass of crazy contradictions.

I am not JUST talking of bashing people etc in forums, I am also talking about:

"labelled (read guru or whatever you wish) ebook sellers selling the sizzle" and... newbies saying "They sell this crap and It didn't make me rich" crap too.

It's one big joke honestly...

Those sellers sell sizzle because the buyers buy it!

Simple really...is it not?

When does the steak come in?

You didn't order one!!

Did you?

I am in no means one of the people "raking it in", not by ANY stretch, but having been into this IM circle a while, one thing as mentioned above has not changed.

Anyway...Its all bollox whatever way you look at it.

Where was I?

Ah... I don't sell sizzle...so maybe I am making a mistake?

Not really...I don't WANT to try and sell sizzle.

I would rather have gravy... ;o)

Without the sizzle and steak the gravy is pretty useless!

YOU provide them...not you BUY them.

Get it straight...the sizzle is the dream...YOUR dream, NO-one can sell that to you.

Your steak is your work and your recipe is your efforts...NO-one can sell that to you.

The gravy...you can get tubs of it from any shop... ;o) cheap too.

Gravy is the income! The reality.

Start looking at things objectively, a mechanic has a dream as a kid, teen, to fix cars, change them , "pimp them up" as they say, the sizzle is the same theme, yet different pictures to each of them.

Unique in each one.

The tools to do it are the same, spanners etc, the shops sell the tools, the teachers at the college and your trainer at the garage are your
Steak chefs and recipe providers.

The gravy is your talent, your knowledge.

The reality is, most of the mechanics end up stuck in a 9 to 5 garage job doing basic car fixing, after doing the training, never really moving from there, possibly never "pimping a car for money", rather as a side hobby, which COST them.

Those who really get the quality gravy are those who DO get out of the 9 to 5 and "specialise", they get to gravy the choose, get to pimp cars for money, the work selling itself.
NOT selling your time at a low rate...ie 9 to 5!

That reminds me, those that sell "how to make money selling "how to make money" ebooks" are in a sense another contradiction, they say, "get into a niche, make money doing that" but sell you a book on making money online in a niche?

They say don't get into "selling books on making money selling books"... why not?, it looks like it pays!
See that contradiction there, then you realise allot of these people selling these DO use niches... hmmm.

Whatever way you want to look at it, there is hard work involved.

If you are new to this the best advice I could give you is to start taking action, whatever action you choose, just DO it.

If you are that stuck, heres an idea to get you really going, action will inspire you.

It is NOT hard at all.

Grab this..book, now be honest with yourself and find a topic you know about, see if there is money in that niche, see what YOU can find if you are new, that gives you an idea of what others will find if they are newish.

Now write some good solid articles using that books methods, use the now well known free BUM matketing method.

Now grab a Blogger account, and this free seo book, READ that, it will give you the plan to follow.

Post at least ONE article every three days to the blog, and one to the article directory of choice.
Link them as told in the book.

Set up a squidoo lens on your topic too, add rss feed from your blog to it.

$7 bucks that all cost you!

Now DO IT. Create YOUR content, it will pay in time.

Get going, see what happens, track you stuff, improve as you go.
Do it for a month.

You will be glad you did.
You will have done something.

Now set up a seperate blog on blogger for YOU, write all your thoughts etc there, keep yourself on track etc, ideas, results.
Use it for what it is, a diary of sorts, even make it private.

Double legacy

This Internet lark is a funny old thing, so to speak.

I was in two minds on how to write this post, after all it's gotta make bloody sense, yet I want to write something in the way I can explain it, it's part of me, my style, my stamp, footprint, it's unique.

The Internet is a massive jigsaw of all these "thoughts and personal ways, styles" you know, does that make sense? ;o)

But more important it's YOURS, your "long in the future to come family" will see something powerful and meaningful, a part of your life and past.
Something YOU left behind, something that could be significant to them in their time.

Make no mistake almost everything online will be kept...somewhere, google etc will nearly always have it somewhere, the governments will too.
It stands to reason.

THAT is YOUR digital legacy.

This blog is part of mine. ;o)

So...a double legacy we leave in life, the real and the virtual.

Anyway...

It's interesting thinking of what you write online like that.

Best up the ante eh... :o)

I was thinking about this recently and how SO many of you, readers and my friends are making a BIG mistake, if you use it that is. (if not, why not... ;o))

I am talking about something that has got huge, and yet there is something being "lost" along the line, sadly you may even be doing this, I was until I realised.
It's going to hurt some of the great writers there when they realise, or read this etc.

It's OURspace... ok myspace.com.
It's not really your space, yet it is in a massive way...

Let me explain, the people who I know for real, my actual mates offline who use myspace, they ARE as they seem on there, its genuine, real, not fake like all the crap some marketers are using! Real... A MASSIVE part of them in digital, they shine through as the people they really are.

Mine IS real, I am using it how it SHOULD be used, what it was created for....yet it could still get deleted, poof, gone, lost for good.

So could anyone's, yours, a friends, whatever, so it's not YOUR space, it's theirs, Tom's.
So what...most of you don't give a shite, it's just a web-network for you and your mates, where ya gossip and stuff about where ya got pissed at the weekend etc. ;o)

Yeah I agree...so what.

On the other hand...

I just want to share something of interest, see what you think.

I wanna give you some ideas and maybe make sense of something you could be doing, with no real extra effort... ;o)

Something that you could be thanking me for soon enough, I already made ONE great writer sit up and TAKE NOTICE.

Some of you write some seriously good stuff on your myspace blogs, stuff that others not using myspace should be able to read it too.

But there is more to it than that.
Not only could it all be deleted if one of the myspace team didn't like it.

But you know what?, you are LOSING it ANYWAY!

Yep, those great and I mean bloody great articles, life stories, daily snippets of your life, a part of YOU, you ARE losing it.

I am sad to see it, and I want you to...

STOP doing it!

DO what I write of here, please.

Let me tell you what it was that made me STOP dead in my tracks and think "shit!"
Now I was a little pissed off to be honest.

I was browsing a few blogs some of you do on myspace and stumbled on a great one, read it all, from the bottom up, as it was in order, being part of 4 part series, made more sense to me, to understand that train of thought as they wrote as well as what they wrote.

Well I thought, "I will remember that blog, come back to it and reread it", I kept browsing, did some work myself etc...

Went back a few days later...the bottom post was gone...a new post had been made and pushed the one off the bottom!

A bloody GREAT article, must have been 1200, 1500 words, THAT is a fair bit of work, believe me. Not only that it was number 1 of the series, new visitors would have lost out in a big way.
A shame to lose that, so I told them...now they know, and I guess will be happy, they may read this. ;o)

STOP losing such quality work you obviously put some serious time and thought into.

You can only post so many on the myspace blog, I can see why with all the traffic myspace gets, the cost being pretty large I would think...having all that!

So...what do you do, and does it matter?

Up to you if you do it, whatever you choose, but I would, considering what some of you write, it's great stuff.

So...start using it to your advantage, and share it better and further.

You know, just like what you read here, its a simple blog, start one, and you know what it will take up hardly any of your time...yet will last alot longer and has far more benefits on the bigger picture, than not doing it.

Let me tell you what you should do... continue doing what you are... "eh?" you ask.

Keep blogging away your great stuff on myspace, but before each post, save the one at the bottom, or better yet save as you do them, then simply post one on your blogger blog, like this is.

Then post your new one on your myspace, and the one you lost at the bottom, is on your new blog, have a link in your myspace blog going to your blogger blog for newer readers.
A link to your myspace page on your new blog too.

And it's YOUR content, your work, your legacy. ;o)

Less than 5 min's work that is!

More than that it gives you a real satisfaction that you have it ALL on one site, one that is yours, your real space!

The amazing thing about this Internet lark is all the talent that has come out, people who never thought they could write ARE writing, and very well too.
People are doing things now that one time would take ALOT of work, getting in print for the world to see.

Sharing yourself, all in your words, pictures etc.

All of you can write, and articles on your passions are a great way to share your knowledge with other like minded people.

Don't think for a minute you CANT write...almost ALL of you CAN, and do, very well without realising it sometimes too.

Anyone can write... just as I said in the last post, try it and see what you can do if you have yet to set up a page, myspace or blog. I would read it, if you let me know of it. ;o)

You superb myspace writers, get a bloody blog set up!

Stop LOSING your CONTENT.

Its gone on long enough...step up to the bloody plate!

Well it's something I have to say in the mirror, but I am also asking YOU to step up the plate too, and inspire me further.

I am pissed off but also happier for it, something really made me stop today and think, this is also going to benefit you too because it made me decide to do it.

I already posted in the last one about I need to change things anyway, well one big part of that is the fact I post too much in the forums...it's true, I DO.

Someone said today, "listen any forum could go.."poof", overnight and be gone"...

He is right...
It IS true....
Ask one warrior about his forum!

You WILL know who it is soon enough! ;o)

I digress.... you should think about what I am saying here in all seriousness.
So..think about that, how much writing you and we all put into a forum...that's a hell of a lot, stuff that could be on your blog, articles, etc, real CONTENT YOU CONTROL.

Lets get real here, I am NOT saying stop posting, just saying it IS real content, there are some real gems on the forums, even post you should save and read plenty of times...so much value in most of the best ones.

Think how many books, blogs all that would create, if you did.
While I think its great, I have a confession to make, I don't, or haven't, given enough really GREAT post to these forums, like some do without naming people.

Well... I will, because I decided to post less often, but better content.

YET I also realise the best content I should give is the content I own, like here on this blog.
I want YOU making comments and reading this blog, I read most of yours. ;o)

As well as other means I own, like reports, ebooks, and articles.
It's evergreen content if you choose it to be.

So, as I say blog about it is what I am going to do, but also share decent real content, I often get real "out of the box" ideas, ideas I will never probably do, why bloody waste them?
Some of them are damn crazy, but pieces of them could be worthy to someone.

I will blog it and let someone else benefit crazily from it.If one day it happens to be YOU that runs with it, great.

If the ideas are crap...I wont last long sharing them!

But if anything I am going to do this just because I can.
I want to.

The other thing I know I will want to start doing is something that ties in nicley here, a newsletter, because I KNOW I wont push crap, and will provide content, stuff I may not even write elsewhere, seeing as its private. ;o)

But you know what...

I've realised I CAN write, and I think pretty ok too, so I will also do a newsletter as soon as possilbe, I already have the perfect role models. ;o)

So... I am going to step up to the plate...but also want you to step up to the plate by helping me step up.
I bet alot of you are sick of hearing about "bum marketing", "$7 reports", "wso's", and plenty of other terms, etc.

There is alot of stuff I am sick of hearing about but I digress, here is an interesting idea that might help YOU, or at least inspire some of you that do struggle, to DO something, something evergreen too, something that you CAN do.

About time some of you acted on some ideas and created some good stuff!
I KNOW most of you are able to do it.

It HAS to fit your plans, or be adaptable to your plans.
This is one you CAN ans SHOULD be doing.

Alot of people moan about "snake oil this" snake oil that", and while I understand that, I also feel it's a shame, its STILL making them money!

Get out of that trap, start ONLY getting good stuff, and

ACTING on it, start buying what HONEST people tell you works or is worth buying, make sure you CAN and DO use it.

Litsen up, here is something I WANT you to TAKE on board, and I may even do a post about JUST this, IM and online marketing is a MINDSET, adictive one too, don't believe me?, right try and stop thinking about it, if you are in this niche.

Try getting to sleep within minutes of going to bed.

I'll help you if you help me, and then we all pay it forward to others.

DEAL??

Ok, well lets crack on...

Don't give me any crap about you can't do this, you can...and hopefully you will.

Tell ya what I will even make a fair bet with ya!

Before I get to that bet...

I am honest and I tell you this is one of those things I think...DAM, I wish I had done that!
And you what else, I will do what it tells, so will you.

Yeah... I was impressed, and I am no hype seller.
Honest marketing is the way with me...full stop, hype sucks, it's just that, hype.

The bet..

Try it, if you fail, I will give you more than the value worth in free stuff myself...BUT you will have to proove you did it, only those who get it thorugh my link though.

You gotta give it a few weeks to really see BIG results.
But hey I think you will have doubled your money within ten days! ...only MY opinion though, you maybe a lazy bugger. ;o)

Do this, even if you ended up getting it before reading this somewhere else do this, post in comments here about the idea here.

Grab this book, it IS by the newsletter role model of mine, someone I KNOW dishes out 100% quality stuff, and I just read this, several parts really got me thining and kicking myself, pretty hard.

You know dam well articles work, and they ARE easy enough to do, especially with this blueprint.

Now act on it, but wih a twist..

Even just simply...

Use the methods to presell this report... its a 100% commission one, and perfect.

If you have a niche, create the evergreen article for your niche using the methods, make it a good solid effort, submit to say ezinearticles, but also point it to another great article on your niche blog, site, where that article is preselling how you create articles for that niche so easy, with your link at the bottom to THIS book, report, point out they get 100% comission too.

Right under that, have a link to an offer to buy 5 top quality articles you also wrote for your niche, using the book's methods, as a smple package for them, the same cost as the book.

Now you gave them a choice, yet the same price, and they will most likely grab ONE of them.
Just in case, have your newsletter sign up box on that page too, in the sidebar.

If the articles are good and they can use them 5 on their sites, with your bio box pointing back to the same article preselling as mentioned, on all 5 articles.

If thay bring in traffic, the likelyhood is the person is going to end up buying the book through your link, and crank out articles of their own.

I bet the first article you write if done well ends up doing good in google, and bringing you that all important fresh cycle of people, all going to your preseller. ;o)

More buyers... do this is several niche sites and you could love this book.

So.. you go for it with this, and help me get my camera.

If ONE of you gets to the top of google with a preseller of this book, comment with proof here, and I will give you a permanent link to your article. ;o)

Get real here, this post is like two article lengths... you CAN write that, I know it.

Hows that?

Gonna step up to the plate? Help me? Help yourself?

Create REAL meat you own?

Grab the article book.
