The ebook, nearly done...

I have been a little quiet on the blog lately due to a few other important things I have been busy with... while also having my youngest son over for a few days too, spending time with him is much better fun and way more important than blogging!

I have been writing an ebook, which I am doing mainly for those on facebook, the majority of which are real friends I know offline, the main reason I write it for them as opposed to the general public is purely because I feel that I will get better feedback and I know some of them will actually do something with the ebook.

If I do decide to promote it to the general public I will have the benefit of great feedback from which I can act on, thus improving the ebook itself.

Why not let my real friends benefit first?... That's what friends are for ;o)

Some of you on facebook have some great potential in regards to using the ebook and taking action on it, I know some of you have great hobbies, expertise, passions and more.

I think it should be finished soon. :o)

Half a million dollars of the truth

It's been a busy week for me sorting things out but something hit my inbox from an online friend who I feel tells it like it is more than most do and this is the real deal!



It underlines that the real magic pill for those seeking success with attempts to make money online is that what you see above!

Simply put nothing else happens until you start using that button above, nothing gets done without it.
It is the action button!

Download and read this for yourself, grasp it fully and you see it ALL boils down to this.

The half a million truth! < (Pdf, right lick and save as.) The "big names" tried to stop them sharing this, and you can see just why. The bottom line is that this information is so obvious and yet so powerful if you did it right it could make a massive difference and yet it is in some ways already happening...but not capitalised on the way it could have been, simply because those who do it don't see the "big picture." I am amazed at this information and just how right it is, so it's saying something when my friend is happy they spent half a million finding it out then sharing it free! Why do that? Because it matters, it's going to change things, and the sharing of this is in itself the truth in action!

Read it, see what it means to you and how it really levels the playing field out for everyone and share your thoughts in the comments below. :o)

"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.

"101 Recession busting tips- free book"

Just a few days away from Christmas and the new year...guessing you have all your preparation ready for the big day to enjoy with your families. :o)

I hope it it's a great Christmas for you and the family.

I also wish you all the best for 2009 which is almost here.

But lets' be honest here, after the new year starts life creeps back to... normal and a fair old chunk of us face the reality of the recession which is not a great start to the year, but as we all know recessions are cyclical so there is always light at the end of the...



What wont happen is staying put....we have to get through that tunnel!

Well I have good news which is this free book to help anyone with getting through the recession.

Old?
Young?
Got kids?
Double income in the home?
Own business?
Shares?
Good stable job?
Just want to make changes?
Boss looking to shaky for your peace of mind?
About to lose it?
Just uncertain?

Whatever situation you are in whether one or all of the above, these 101 tips have something for all, something foreverybody.

It's not just all about...



Though money tips are there, saving money, improving your money management, making money, helping kids with money, money alone has it's own issues, depending on how you see it...




The recession will provide opportunity for those who see it, opportunity to change habits, create better understanding of the cycle for the next time it hits, as it certainly will.

For those who don't see opportunity, preparing for the end half of the recession is just as important as what you do now as we go into it, if only for the fact you can springboard yourself using built up leverage coming out of the recession, whether through saving a little, or starting a new venture, hobby, habits.

Use the tips, use the recession. :o) >> Beat the recession!






P.s No idea if the book will stay free, so grab it while you can. :o)

"A great FREE traffic tips ebook"

When I got an email not to long ago with a free report for traffic tips, in all honesty I thought, "not another free ebook for me to read"!

I will read them of course, you never know where you get a good tips from, incraesed traffic should mean we make more money online if that is an aim.

But this was different, no fluff and filler with it, just short easy to digest tips, often one line is all that's needed to say it.

You get 247 good tips.

Some I knew, some not, some I would NEVER have though about!

I found at least 5 I can try out easily offline in the next few days, at least 2 tomorrow!

A warning though, this is ONLY FREE until end of Sept!
So while you can you should grab this, it's made for people like you, me, bloggers, home businesses, etc.

In fact offline could be the place to sell this book if the author does sell it that is. ;o)

I am glad to have grabbed it and think you should too, if you can generate ten new visits to your site, blog, a day, how many is that at Christmas?

99 days till Christmas is it??

Worth grabbing for free is it not?

Click and grab your FREE (LINK REMOVED).

I'll bet you get at LEAST 5 good tips you can implement immediately and grow your traffic.

From 247 of them you have a huge choice.

NOTE :: Edited to remove link as it is no longer free. Will be sold for $7. If anyone wants to grab this for that $7 let me know in the comments. :o)

"Social networking mastered"

Exciting times for you bloggers who actively use social networking, but only if you understand it and use it the right way.

Web 2.0 was what I had been eagerly waiting for, being deaf you can probably understand why. ;o)

Being a blogger meant it never passed me by, as blogging was part of interactivity (web.2.0) before the phrase web 2.0 was even coined, yet now it is making a big difference to my blogs, as well as me. ;o)

Believe it or not there are still lots of people who don't know what web 2.0 even means, or have yet to even hear of it.
Web 2.0 = better interactivity. ;o)

Using web 2.0 (social sites, etc) is the best thing you can possibly start doing if you are a blogger or website owner, after all you are already a part of it. ;o)

In my eyes the best way to get traffic to your blog, more so if it's a new blog is using the power of social networking, bookmarking sites etc.

Maximise what you have before getting more traffic and you get to make the most of the new traffic too, yes?
That's what I have been doing, and it works for me well, so now I started to think of ways to increase my traffic.

So I had a great surprise when I grabbed this new report, book, pdf, whatever label you give it and this book just reinforced the fact what I am already doing is the right things in the right way, but I can still do better... ;o)

While I already knew a fair bit of what this shares, (being a blogger almost 4 years made sure of that), it gave me new angles to look at what I already do and plan to do.

These new angles I can promise you will make a big difference to what I had planned anyway...great to see your own plans and ideas from another angle...it expands it. ;o)

While some people will look at things from a "will this make me more money" angle, the key to everything online is traffic, and more traffic can mean more money, right? ;o)

To me the traffic increase is what most people need, even if no intention to monetise that traffic is there, people still want more readers, right?

Of course, so I recommend everyone grab this report, read it and master it. ;o)

The biggest thing I can say is I KNOW it works because I have had success with it and I KNOW web.2.0 is what you should learn more about, even if you have no blog yet.
You are online, you use web 2.0!

Grab it, share your thoughts in the comments. ;o)

"Shocking stats"

So over the last few weeks I have been getting back into the swing of things nicely and moving swiftly in the right direction, that's down to a few things.

Blogging by it's nature has ups and downs with posting, at times it can't be resolved as with my case.
Losing momentum was a key area for me and I believe it is an important thing with building a blog and giving the readers what they want...content.

During the offline hassle the blogs visitors dipped alot, naturally.
Now a month on, the blog's traffic has gone right back up to almost 3000 for July. :o)

Pleasing to say the least.
Averaging 100 a day is not to be sneezed at really.
Not my best month but still a good month and there is a week left yet.

Great to know at least you are happy to read the blog, thanks.

The bad side of the stats which surprised me was the fact the response to my offer in the post below was not as good as hoped, but not as bad as can be.

Well over 300 visitors in 3 days...to that blog post and 11 takers.

I can't believe it really, a service that will help you if you play your role and be 100% honest to yourself is not taken up, they miss the potential, yet...

If I had offered an ebook that was ok and you learnt things yet it just sat on your hard drive gathering dust it would have been snapped up by more people?!

Especially newbies who suffer lack of focus more than most.

Yet it did nothing to change things, because you read it and did nothing.? Wasted money.

Yet with my offer you would have HAD to take action or you would be wasting the money joining in the first place.

If you took NO action with with mine, fine...you are in the same position as you are AFTER buying the book....wasted money.

Strange this, so it's leading me to question alot of things.

Any opinions on this?








P.s Warriors...would it help to offer you a free warrior way book after you join?
I am going to revamp it and you as well as others who have bought will also get the upgraded version free. If so... buy the offer as below, use beer function and you will get a copy!

If that is good enough for you, do it, then email me to warriors+deafdad AT gmail.com
(replace AT with @ )

Its only good for this week!

"How to create a successful blog"

I am annoyed, I have been at this blogging lark a few years now, almost 4!

I won't say I am an expert, I know what I know though, and it's got me this far. ;o)

BUT I could have done so many things so much better and now I would have a much better situation for it.
It's never to late to change things and that's a wonderful thing about blogs...you can change and update things.

What if I had done it all the right way right off the bat though!?

I would be earning a full time living from blogging I reckon. ;o)

There are some things I have missed, you may ask how I know now what it is I missed.
I just read something that really opened my eyes and it cost me BUGGER all! ;o)

Bargain...and priceless learning for me.

The funny thing is I have blogged almost twice as long as the author...damn I need to pay more attention! :o)

That's not to say I should know more, just that you never know who you will learn things from.

If only I had the blueprint when I started blogging!

Grab it free and read it whether you are new or seasoned at blogging, even better if you have yet to start.
Imagine you implemented all this into your blogs from day 1?

At least I know every new blog I do will have a better chance of success.
Also you may see big and small changes around here. ;o)

For me this fantastic book joined alot of the dots as well as highlighted the small things that would have better influenced the bigger things.

I will be taking more notice of page 13, which will of course set the tone for the rest of the blog!

I also will capitalise more on page 25, which I do already but underestimated it a fair bit. ;o)

If I had done chapter 25 better, then I would be feeling the real effects of pages 26, 27...which would mean 28 would have been explosive!

Grab it read it, and make sure you are NOT on page 48!
Utilise this fantastic blueprint.

I am glad I read this and would go as far as saying this IS the best free resource on blogging you will find.

"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!

"You dissapoint me"

The last week has taught me some big lessons, mainly things I would never have thought about. It was only the fact I got things moving and started paying attention to things I noticed yet didn't expect.

I learnt lessons about alsorts, interesting ones, surprising ones, and sadly dissapointing ones!

The biggest lessons I learnt were centred on me, about myself and I am glad to have learnt new things.
That's what life is all about after all, learning, growing and expanding.

Having got alot of work done and starting off in the right direction at least I know I can do it and always improve it as I go and I will.

Getting the Warrior book done was a big plus, it's bringing something in though from the people I least expected it to be from.

I know it is a very targeted niche of people, yet I did it in a sense of giving back as well as the possible return for contributing there too.

There are those who bought it, maybe in all honesty because I wrote it, maybe as a way of helping me out, that's great, what was better they liked it.

Others dissapoint me!

I digress...

I got told something by a friend...a real mate, an offline mate that made me think.

"Rob...you're too fu*king nice!" in his exact words!

hhhm... well I did touch upon it in an older post on here where I asked...

"Do I have to tell people to f*k off before they take any notice?

Yes I was angry hence the swearing...I am an adult so I am allowed to!

Anyway...the point was it seems so many take more notice of the jerks out there. What a crock of shit.

If I had created a book...

"Make a gazillion in 24 hrs at the press of a fu*king button"

Yours for ONLY $19.99... I would have sold hundreds!

What the hell's the matter with these people?

Anyway, bollox to it, I got some interesting lessons from it all that I can learn from that is the main thing.

Whatever....

A beautiful day today, a perfect day for taking pics!

Here I am ..semi ranting...

*sigh*

"The Warrior way"

Many of you know I am a regular visitor at the Warrior forum, a good place to learn all about Internet marketing, and more.
If you have a problem or question you can get a rapid answer there, they will help you if they can.

It's been said that the forum has literally influenced millions in deals, I could believe that, quite easy, after all there is a sticky thread there called "How this forum can make you $50,000 or more", quite a good thread too, lots of inspiring tales of success, overcoming failure etc.

All good.

Something I have been doing, and doing happily is failing fast!

It's those fast failures that become the stepping stones to success, the more I fail, the nearer I am to success.
Some may scoff at that, but I DO believe it to be true.

How fast do you think the failures for the light bulb invention happened before it succeeded?
Take your time and you may never get there!

So...the Warrior forum is full of fast failures on the way to success...a fair few have reached success, after all not many will give up, THAT is the biggest failure, giving up!

I am NOT giving up, that's for sure.
I will continue to learn, apply, and improve too.

I see so many people go to the Warriors and blow it, blow an opportunity to learn something of value, build the important needed parts to succeed online.

It's a shame, they don't really appreciate what it offers because they don't give it long enough to see what it could really do for them.

So for those and even the known Warriors I wrote a book which will be of help to them.

It's called : "The warrior way", it's new and an asset if you really want to make the Warriors work for you, instead of against you.

You can see there has been a couple of satisfied buyers at the review section, bearing in mind I only finished it last night, I am pleased it's selling AND they like it. ;o)

Although based on the warrior forum, it's good info on making the right moves in any forum.

Hopefully it will do want I wanted it to do...that is help people.

What are your thoughts on this?

Any opinions are much appreciated.

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.

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.
