If you can't yet see the bridge, you can't cross it



Someone asked in a forum when he should attempt to make money online by monetising his blog as he has now built up to an average of 50 readers a day, no mean feat for a 6 week old blog and being the first one they have created.

I was amazed at the forum "newbies" giving what is basically a bad version of simple advice much of which is just something they read on the forum earlier by someone else who has more experience of the truth, but they explained it all in more detail and it was more relevant to the thread the "newbies" originally read the advice in.

How can you know how to cross that bridge if you have yet to even see the bridge yourself?

Those spouting bad half-advice should take a step back and see what they are doing and how it looks to others on the forum, it makes you look naive...new.

Saying "slap adsense on it and you will easily make money online" when they have only 50 visits a day is just plain ridiculous.

Yes googles adsense is the worlds biggest advertising model and it is worth using of course but...

With adsense you will need the one thing it relies on to make it worthwhile and that is big traffic, you know something like 500 hits a day minimum to even start thinking about it being a decent earner...OR very targeted traffic.

The key thing really is to have mainly that ONE monetisation method on your blog for best results with adsense, not mix it up too much with affiliate stuff or banners, this will only hurt the revenue itself by giving you the lower paying ads.

Makes sense doesn't it?
After all why would google put the better ads on the lower traffic sites or blogs?
The advertisers wouldn't be happy either.

Way better to wait until you have enough traffic to make it worth your while, a lesson I only recently realised, partly due to the same bad misinformation and the lack of really testing it for myself, which I have now done a bit more of and found some really nice results I can act on in a bigger way.

So if not adsense now what should you do with a low traffic count like the mentioned example?

If you only have 50 or so visits a day, best to just spend more effort getting more traffic while continuing to post on a regular basis.

So how to best do that is the next question I would assume they would ask, that really depends on the blogs content, the market and where the people they needed to reach are.

That's the bridge you need to cross, not the make money online one.

Don't you agree?

The human element, as always

It baffles me when I see people who ask in forums about the "magic stuff" dressed in other words, like "will this software, tool etc help me to easily (and hassle free) make money online?"



"Do I have to so anything at all except push a button?" is the main point they make behind it, really this is that "magic button" people seek.

There is NO magic hassle free easy way to make money online! ANYwhere...or offline.

The main point is whatever they are talking of, be it software, a tool etc, there is always that human element, usually it's disguised as "action or work" which as always, is not what they want to hear.

Tools and such are just that, a tool to use as leverage...

Imagine how much hard work it must be to pull a boat laden with fish and such up a steep pebble beach.
Be nice to have a tool to do it yes?

Notice that handle on that winch above?

Leverage.

Yeah...there is that human element, as always. :o)

"Blogging for money"

I saw an interesting post in a forum earlier today asking if blogging to make money online was even worth trying and some of the replies were very interesting from a few different perspectives.

In my view some of the replies were bad advice for going broke fast at worse and a dumb opinion based on nothing at best.

Either way these opinions were crap!

The problem is some of those opinions out there could seriously harm people if they followed them, just as we often see anywhere online there is simply way to much misinformation and loose opinions that count for shit in reality!

So is it worth blogging to "make money online"?

My issue with that is you rarely see the real underlying question that matters to most people and the one they would really ask, that is...

"Can you blog for consistent money?"

The answer is yes as it is being done, BUT the difference is they don't "blog to make money online", they blog as a part of their overall business...something all bloggers who wish to generate an income from it should bear in mind, including me at times.

But if you are going to blog, do it anyway, forget about the making money for now.

This one thing I have been asked a few times is "how do you write so much that is needed for a blog?"

My short answer is who said "you have to write so much?"

If you really want to blog you will have to write but there is nothing saying how much or what style it has to be etc, the best advice if you really want to write is to...write, then write some more but also read more, get your kids into the reading habit while you are at it as it is so important anyway.

Reading becomes interwined with writing anyway, so in that sense read the blogs on the topics, themes you feel you would blog about.

The truth is if you don't write any content you will never make money online blogging.

But it's not the blogging itself that makes the money it is the marketing of the blog, getting the eyeballs onto the content you write that really matters.

The 80/20 rule applies here IMO, which way round is up to you.

Puting in 20% of good effort on writing the blog content is better than doing none, add 80% promotion and marketing and you will get that ball rolling quick.

Put 80% effort into the content creating and 20% into the promotion and marketing and you will get the ball rolling slower, though maybe it will be better long term.

It depends on you, your plan, you efforts and the time you can put in, the topic you choose, so many factors no-one can say it's worth it or not other than you.

One very good reason to take advice on forums etc with a pinch of salt.

Those who share bad advice I noticed don't even have blogs!

Let alone blogging to make money online!

"Misinformation"

Shocking, I had a browse around the forums, including the ones I was on but no longer use, the level of crap and misinformation is unblelievable.

Newbies and fakers posting about things they know nothing about trying to sound like they do know about it.

Terrible mistake, and certainly stupid when they later ask for information on how to do whatever they were previously pretending they knew.

You know the stupid idiots who have "Make huge bucks with ?? blah blah link" in their sig.

Then ask how to make some money in a post?!

You have to laugh at these morons.
Else they drive you nuts! :o)

Stupidity is abundant in some of them.

Including what are "supposedly" the best forums!

"Spammer Moya giving email tips?"

I have posted about this unethical marketer Cody Moya before on here and that was due to finding NO way to unsubscribe from his email BLASTING campaigns, his unsubscribe link NEVER worked, it took a public bashing in a forum to get him to manually remove me from his list.

So I had to laugh when someone showed me a link and I saw this idiot post about "email laws (important)" on his site.

Geeeesh what a hypocrite!

I mean seriously who the hell is HE to give advice he don't even follow...even if it IS the law!

Irony, as I have said many a time is the best humour you can find!

"How I made $1000 in 24 hours"

Been a busy few weeks and one great thing is getting out of the forums will make your productiveness improve seeing as you are creating content for yourself and not the forum owners.

But something I have to say...

Why is headlines like the one above what draws you in?

Are people so easy to pull with hype?

Why do titles like that work so well with people?

Do people really believe that just because someone does this anyone can?

The world is nuts!

I have to say...there are so many lies and misinformation around it's scary, the forums can be the worse place for it with so many "fake it till ya make it" types and flat out liars.

If that's how it works, then it's sad!
Half of these fakes are simply eager to rape your wallets and yet people let them?

Unbelievable and to be honest it's not surprising which forums are the worse for it.

Ok... people want hype and people want instant riches!

Well I have news... there is NO instant riches else there wouldn't be hype!

Anyone have an opinion on this?

"The truth of the Warriors"

update**
Allen flat out LIED on the forum today saying people were warned before deletion.
Well I was NOT! And EVERYONE on there knows it.
**

Anyone who knows me knows I do not hold back and I do not "sugar coat" things.
I will tell it the way I see it. If what I say bothers you, don't read it.


Many of you will have recently seen what has been happening in the warrior forum, indeed myself being deleted unfairly was one of them but then I am not the only one!

Why should THAT matter to you anyway?

Well I was almost up to 5000 post and have contributed to the forum for almost 4 years and if they can treat me that way they can do it to you too.

So am I writing this because I am bitter?
NO!

I am writing this because I feel let down and I feel what I contributed to the forum has been dismissed...almost 5000 post they just casually dismissed at the press of a button, not bitter but disappointed.

Not only that...the mod who deleted me has NO backbone to even admit to doing it.

Is that the action of a decent person? No I didn't think so either...they are simply a coward.

There has been a number of long term posters with high post count who have been unfairly treated although also a few of the big names have left...including someone you all know well...
J Reese.

Although John left of his own accord I can imagine he was pretty angry and annoyed by it all when it happened, I feel he was let down by Allen badly..I wonder if HE felt that?

Bear in mind although I do not really know what went on in Johns mind at the time, I can only presume, which I won't do.

Here I will be saying what I think about the whole situation and how I think it will be going in the future and why NOW may be the best time for you to really think about your role in the warrior forum.

Look at the fact that ONE mod had been made n/a before... say's alot.

Why help them with great content and also traffic when they so obviously don't give a rats ass about you?

Stick to putting your best content on what YOU own.

Before I go further let me take a moment to explain the way I have seen the warrior forum's wealth being distributed there.
The "big guys" don't need Allen or his forum, they have left him behind, John Reese proved that.

John publicly slammed the forum, since then Allen KNOWS if he is to keep the "big guys" onside he will have to change things regarding the so called "negativity" which is not as bad as it is made out.

The fact is the bigger you are, the more you get hassle in some ways and that is what happens here.

But it probably hurt Allen to see John do that...I can assure you this is a factor else things would NOT be the way they are.

Ready for a shocker?

Allen needs YOU more than you need HIM.

Over the years there has been some great IM careers that started right there in the forum, but now I feel those days are GONE!

And Allen KNOWS it!

Shame for him, he made money from them sharing their little morsels...look at Mike F now for an example...he comes in throws morsels to the members and they lap it up.

Someone even pointed out to me that Mike has in his BFM ebook (manual?) exactly what happens in places like the warriors regarding "fans" and "bashers", if you have it...try and find it.

He is quick to jump in when his fans are losing the argument.

There are others who Allen is trying to keep "onside" and we all know who they are.

The way they promote themselves on the forum...

Yet YOU do that and it's promotional...it gets deleted!

One rule for some...one rule for others.

BUT he also knows one or two of you he can use to create some income, in fact he has already started doing that...look well enough and you can see it.

He is the bitter one really, think about it!

Why did he chase down the higher posting ladies there, I can name at least 3 he has chased out of the forum, and that's just THIS year.
I also know there are one or two who he is watching, yes waiting for ONE slip up and bang they will be gone!

Who? I won't say...you will see it for yourself.

Make sure you are NOT relying solely on that place for income.
It IS the most FICKLE forum out there.

Lets get something straight about the way I see Allen, he must get bored easy with things, look at the things he has done over the years...great start then they die off.

I had respect for the guy but sadly he has blown that recently and I KNOW I am not alone regarding that.

Buy then why should he care...he ONLY cares about the BIG guys who draws the newbies in, where the morsels can be chucked at them thus earning HIM and THEM money...yet it's YOUR money they are getting!

Sod that!

If you want to help THEM get rich then go for it...better for you to have money coming IN than out so create and sell...that's what I am going to concentrate on.

There is ONE way you can really make some serious money there...become the "next biggish guy" and being "flavour of the month"....like Jon Leger did.

Easy? NOPE.

There are others in front of you in that queue!...Look closely and you will see who..
Look closer and you will see how it became that way for them.

Yes I am serious, that and the fact Allen KNEW the members would gobble it up thus make HIM money..

There is something I should point out though, I do NOT believe Allen is making THAT much money overall with the warriors.

Simply because most of those who did generate the income are GONE, they got bigger and better so they don't need him or the warrior forum.

Here is what Allen said to me in PM... after I complained about being banned.

"The guru hating AND loving shit has got to go around here.
I don't like either side, the lovers or the haters."


Um....hang on....He loves the lovers...he NEVER complains about the ones who lick arse and love the "big guys"... he ONLY ever complains to the "bashers"...why?

Why do you think? It keeps the big guys onside having their egos stroked.

See what I mean?

I told him I don't hate anyone...not anywhere, if he read the post below he may "get it".

Why didn't he stop people bashing J Reese before he left?

Stable, horse, bolt, spring to mind.

He regrets John leaving...that much IS obvious.

So if I praised the big guys and licked their arses...I would NEVER have been n/a.

Thanks...but NO thanks... I am not sucking up to them at all... for anything.

If they are decent people who deserve respect then great...sadly alot of them are NOT!

There are one or maybe two mods there who are serious assholes.. they will delete a perfectly good post of yours and when you post asking why, that gets deleted, then every post you make after gets deleted...even if it is to help someone.

I know this it happend several times to me TODAY.

There has always been one or two assholes modding that place, they will follow you around in there and it winds you up...they drive you to losing your rag and getting deleted.

That place is going down the pan and fast.

I am not going to even bother trying with it anymore.

I posted there today asking for advice and opinions on the post below, one reason was it may help them understand why sometimes I get fired up, I asked if they could advise how I could maybe do something that will help me become a better poster there....and never guess what?

It got deleted!

No heart...no balls and no shame.

When Allen sorts out the couple of stupid cowardly moronic mods I may try again.
I don't hold my breath though as they have no balls.

Warriors, those mods? More like bullying idiots.

I am not the only one who is pissed off and fed up with it.

Good luck Allen...those mods are ruining your forum, NOT the members be them "bashers" or "lovers", they make YOUR forum work.

You don't appreciate it.

Any opinions?

"Offer ends TODAY"

Thank you to those who have joined me over the last two days regarding my offer made in an earlier post.

This offer will end at midnight (my time=BST) today. YES the price WILL go back to normal as well as the free year offer being removed.

So please if you are on the fence, join today!
Simply use the beer function here or in the warriors if you prefer that way.

I have had a eventful few days with all the hassle at the warrior forum, the bonus of that hassle is the traffic to this blog has jumped alot today, in fact it's almost doubled!

So a big welcome to you new readers and thank you for popping by, I hope you get some value from here, should you want me to blog about anything in particular just ask. ;o)

Well if you are keen to join us and keen to reach your own goals a little easier and more consistently you should make the cost of this offer, even more so at that ridiculous low price which will be locked in for all years after too.

Whatever happens if it doesn't work for you it's hardly put a dent in your money and you will still have a year of fun and more importantly building relationships with other members.

Give it a go, what have you got to lose other than time wasted procrastinating which will cost you far more than the ten bucks to join!

"Lynn Terry's post..."

Says it all...

Lynn had a guest speaker to outline "3 reasons why your profits aren't twice as big" and number three sums up the sheer value of my offer in earlier post.

I quote...

Even better is to publicly keep accountable via personal friends, or on a discussion forum. It’s a known fact that we tend to work harder to meet public goals than we do to chase after our private ones. You would do well to use this form of leverage on yourself.

Even better is to do it in a private but publicly viewable to the members forum, for you can feel confident not everyone is reading your post, only those who matter so you can go for it without holding back.

See just how useful it could be for reaching your goals?

How powerful to your longer term plans.

Need I really say more?

If you don't see the value by now then you wont full stop.

You see it?
Great, capitalise on it. Leverage it for yourself.

"Clarifying the focus"

Having a few of you readers emailing me to ask about my last post about the focus project and what the "membership" offered, I felt it best to clarify the matter.

This project is a forum which is not available to the general public at large so it's a private and closed forum / community.

One with a difference.

Having a forum with 10's of 1000's of members is great but if only 100 or so are active then some are missing out big time.

My aim is to to have all ACTIVE members, I feel the optimum would be 1000 for the maximum benefit to EVERYONE.

Once I hit 1000 members I may well close it completely, I will let the members have an input to this decision too.

The reason for this is obvious when you see inside, once you have joined us ONE post in particular will make it ALL clear to you.

Seeing who is here already means there will be some GREAT threads to come here plus knowing outsiders cannot see them, not much will be held back.

If you are serious about getting somewhere while setting your goals you will appreciate this project and its massive potential to help you.

As you see in the last post with the offer price and it's bonus year FREE as well, not forgetting also having a locked offer price for all years after that you have a good opportunity to make a great leap to reaching your goals.

Where will YOU be in one year from now?

Join us NOW and ensure you achieve your goals.

Warrior forum...

Having a break has had its benefits as you can imagine.

Most of you know I use the warrior forum alot but I gotta say "its changed."
Seems thing's happened when I was offline, not sure exactly what went on nor do I really need to know.

I can hazard a guess but I will keep that to myself. ;o)

Though it of course like anything in life has negative points, I do like the place.
The simple truth is that forum can do alot for you, IF you are going about things the right way.

But what about...

The old boys club that people talk about... ok, well maybe there is one, maybe not, depends what you wanna see!

There is something of that nature everywhere really so why would it be so different there?

It's up to you how you see it and where you fit into things, no-one makes anyone do anything.

It's a shame to see those who have made alot of money and MILKED the warriors (to be honest its how it is to me) have left because things may not have been going the way THEY wanted it.

Still... what would you expect in IM?

May piss some people off saying this but I don't care... I am being honest if that's not ok for some tough, because I can ONLY be honest.

I am glad to say though, HYPE is on it's way out... great.

I think, and I am allowed my opinion, that hype is the fault of the US marketers, after all the Americans love their hype.. don't they?

Must do... they fall for it enough, if they didn't hype wouldn't be such a problem.

People can't complain when they fuel it.

So what becomes of the warriors?
Who knows... all I know is things have changed alot.

Take care,

"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.

"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.

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.

Changes, for the better

Change of scene


A change of scene, a change of direction, and a change of focus is what's happening for me from today onwards.

Things ARE going to change, for the better, I am going to make sure of it.

I know that I NEED to change these things in order to get what really matters...being happy.

You know, things are not good enough for me at the moment and it's my fault, and up to me to sort it out, that I will do.

Yet things happening lately have pissed me right off... but let's get something off my chest now.

Things won't change on the whole "out there", as you know this is MY perspective and opinion, I am entitled to them, they ARE mine.

I made a few daft mistakes I admit, learning from them is what matters so thats all good, thats what I will do.

All I can do is deal with my own actions, what I do, thats all I can really control anyway, me...not that I was even trying to "control" anyone or anything.

Just the fact I gotta deal with me and what I really want, so I will.

No-one pissed me off...just things.

Thing that happened and things I did.

Gonna also post far less in forums...it needs to be done!

Anyway...change of scene, somehow, I am going to get a camera, I need to be taking pics, I know that 100%, it sparks me big time, my eyes are great, I wanna bloody use them AND capture the moment... ;o)

Its great.

I will BLOG far more...take pics everyday etc, and do a few suprises.

I will NOT hold up on writing true to me, that way I am happy. ;o)

I will focus on these and what compliments it, what works, test track everything, give you readers the best of what I got, yet stay true to MY way.

I will most likely piss someone off one the way!

I NOW know you can't please everyone, and that I am thankful for it, it means at least narrowing down who I DO and CAN please.

Big lessons learnt over the last three months, it's bloody march already!

Spring clean... perfect! ;o)

I AM going to change direction, in the right direction.

Going to just enjoy my weekend with my boys...then come back better, fresher and truer to me.

And DO IT.

Busy busy busy

Well as the title says, I have been pretty busy these last few days, hence the lack of posting on the forums.
Having already got A message to a friend up and running I started on another product.

I hope to have that finished tommorrow, I need to get it finished as I am in need of getting things moving at a constant rate...not to mention having a few bills that I HAVE to get paid asap.

I hope this new product sells alot better than what I have already done.
It's more of a targetted product so should do better.

It's almost March already which has got me thinking about what the last two months have been like.
I can't believe how quick it's going at the moment, yet I am NOT happy with what I have achieved so far, I should have done better so I will have to ramp it all up a notch to get to where I should be.

I am not that far behind so catching up should be doable.

Are you where you planned to be since the new year?

Why do I bother

Today is a day to share the love and yet did I waste my time?

On the forums and some blogs I read there is so much complaining about people selling snake oil. selling crap, pushing all and sundry to them in newslatters etc.. I almost think well WHY do you give them ya bloody money?

C'mon, lets get real here its because of those who complain that the "snake oil salesmen" get rich..its thier money they get rich from??

Yet someone like me, with NO list, no crap products or snake oil for that matter spends time writing up something that almost anyone can share an benefit from with a unique twist to it, gets bugger all reaction?!

WHY?

Why do I even bother?

Interesting numbers and it means one thing...

I know my next move in regards to it.. ;o)

Its been a good lesson or two for me that's for sure.

The numbers are interesting and will make the next few moves for me much less a worry, it is always a worry things won't get taken to well, yet you can't know till you try.

So for that reason I AM glad I did offer it but also because giving is the way we should be.
Swings, roundabouts and all that jazz.

I was on the fence for a few reasons but decided I didn't like it up there so had to make the choice.

Cowards and bullies on forums

I HATE bullies!!
It's unbelievable how rude and cowardly these bullies can be... they are among the BIGGEST hypocrites I have ever met.

Thinking it's ok to bully people yet as soon as someone stands up to their bullying on the forums... they get banned?
Hows THAT for PURE cowardly actions?
Just like REAL bullies offline... don't like not getting away with their bullying.

Cowards and hypocrites...the owner has even had ex members start a site up glorifying their hatred of that owner... says it all.

Astonishing... simpleminded cowardly idiots!
The situation reflects far more on those bullies than anyone else.

Cowards and bullies are really SAD.

Liars and forum abusers

As you know I frequent a fair few Internet marketing forums.

I guess some people will never get it though, every forum gets these types.
You know the ones I mean, they hide behind some stupid userneame like makemoneyonline or some crap..
I just tapped keys so sorry if anyone DOES use that username!

But I digress...they are more often than not a....
A no mark.. no name no mark.
A loser... or a bully.

It is these that feel they can abuse others and abuse the forum's Private messenger functions.

I got news for those idiots... the mods see EVERYTHING.
They see where you are, what thread, what you pm people if they choose to keep an eye on them that is.

They know everything..

I don't NEED to justify myself because I stand behind what I say.

These people are the sort that will say someone else said this, yet the truth is they said it, just haven't the balls to stand up and be honest.

When you get a messge from some no mark that says something
like..

"Are you racist? someone was bad mouthing you and I wanted to ask"

You have to wonder why they say something so daft.

I mean...being deaf I know full what well what predjudism is like and how it can be hurtful, so there is no way in hell I am going to be prejudiced?

Is there?
I mean it wouldn't even make sense...it is bullies and lowlifes who have that sort of attitude.

So... I replied.. "Who would say that? Do they have any proof that I am racist? Have I posted anything racist?"

And they reply..."well no, I saw something I didn't like that you posted" (thought it was someone else?)
Then provide NO proof, or won't point to the post in question.
Well you know...what an idiot they must be!

Fancy making up something like that? Weirdo...

Fancy making up some mystery person that supposedly said this or that?

From THAT one PM I come to the conclusion that they are a liar!
What other conclusion could I come to?

So...they then post something to the forum thinking..
"oh well at least others will see this and maybe believe me so I can do some damage"

What an idiot...childish and pathetic...do they REALLY think the mods etc won't know?
So...I forward the PM's to the mods...not that I needed to, they know anyway.

So who will that hurt in the long run?
Not me...

Stupid people...stupid act of childishness...and a liar to boot.

Oh yeah...there is a name for them...TROLLS.

A good idea?

We all use alot of the forums and often we can chew up alot of time in them.

I thought I would set this up... Threads lens...

I hope its of use to others too... feel free to comment on it. :o)

Update : I wouldn't mind offloading this lens, if anyone is interested and uses the IM forums, simple to add threads you like so you could build this up to be a great central for threads from all marketing forums then using it as a part of your own make money online plans.. Email me if you are interested.

Less is more...at times

Forums can be a great place to make money online utilising what you learn in them and utilising what the owners teach you in terms of making money online from other forums you may find, use. Marketing forums like the warrior forum is the type of thing I mean.



Anyone who frequents the marketing forums will have heard if the "warrior forum", it was were I first bit the marketing bug... and I have learnt alot there as well as other forums.

There is an amazing bunch of lessons to be learned in forums.
Not just from the content but sometimes more from the people.

Made many great friends etc.

Due to being a lurker and poster for a few years, a lurker for at least 10 months before the first post..why?

You need to read and absorb before jumping in, it is like going to a new club in a new village, town, you gon't just wade in, you sit back and observe, get a feel for the place, glad I did otherwise I wouldn't be a moderator on several big forums now.

That is why it can seem so harsh for those who jump straight in.

One thing I have given a fair bit of thought about is the owner of the warrior forum.. Allen Says.

Here is a man who we can all learn to observe carefully, for it will be of benefit to you in more ways than one.
He not only writes great tips you can profit from but he also writes things that you can utilise to better yourself, your life, your thinking, in several ways.

But is what he writes and how he writes it that matters here.

Take a look at any post he makes, he writes very little yet it is always more powerful info than you can at first imagine.

The key here is he makes every word count, getting the message over as clear and direct as possible without diminshing the meaning.. in fact he expands the power.. through the less is more effect.

It means you will read EVERY word.. I NEVER skim over his work, I read every single word, then I read it all again.

Much like you have to with the classic "Think and grow rich".

There is a real influence in his words if taken in mind as its written, you have to "get it", but good for us it is not hard to get it when he writes it the way he does.. we could all learn from his style.

And those who have learnt the most from him are starting to adopt a similar way in their style.

There are a couple who I feel have subtley and cleverly adapted their style in a way it has not stood out by way of a blatant switch to a "copycat mode" but has still had the desired successful effect to a great level.

Having been offline a while it looks more prominant to me, so it is very noticeable but it must have been subtle as I can't find much evidence of people writing about it.

Those that I have noticed adapting are not going to be a big suprise to you, after all they are two of the people who "take action" and most people read their every word now!

So who am I on about? Spit it out Rob..

Well ok but last year when I had my offline issues they both helped me alot, and I knew already they are top blokes, but hey when I come back a year later, I see some subtle difference in their presence on the warrior forum.

Looking back it was already happening before I had my issues, but as I say so subtley I didn't really take much notice.
But it has had a tremendous impact!

The proof is in the pudding.

You could probably guess who I will mention... at least ONE of them..

If you look at the post these two have made in the forum you will see it for yourself, and you will see WHAT they have adopted and HOW, so if that is obvious to you obviously you already know what you need to do yourself.. ;o)

The more obvious one I would say is Bryan Kumar, since he has been an early adaptor to Allens style..
But the other I feel has made a more dramatic adaption so I noticed it more.. and that is Paul Short.

They both benefit from it greatly now.. in more ways than one.

This post here I am writing is proof of that.

Just take some time to read the post they all write.

They all get answered, they all write great content, they give freely... yet they write less..less often, less words.. you see the power of what they learnt from Allen..

Look at how often Allen post to the forum... not that often.. look at how little he replies to his own post..

He will on occassion make a great reply with quote of someones reply to his original post... but it is rarely...

He gives you a great post, but leaves it so that eveyone else can expand on it... without him needing to do anything more.

Others do the expanding of their power...elaborating on the post, and eargerly awaiting more from them..which as you know rarely comes.

Therefore when it DOES come to promoting something they will get instant results..

Allen, Bryan and Paul giving you the meat but with a need for a bit of garnish which YOU add!

All the less is more proof you need.

Incidently if you came here from the warrior forum post I wrote about this blog post will have noticed more proof of the less is more approach, after all I didn't write much did I?!


Take heed of not only the people in the forums but those who own and run them too, often it's what they do you should be taking notice of rather than what they say.
