Well I damn near gave up with it...

Just when it seems there's...



Something comes along to make things a little easier, better, bearable, often it's just a new day!

It always happens, yet we manage, everything bothering you today seems so trivial next week, you wonder why you let it bother you in the first place.

Something I thought we get better at as we get older, I mean we know these things yet still it gets under our skin, we should know better...I must have been mistaken!

Then again, knowing and accepting are two different things!

As some of you know I started writing an ebook, digital report, (whatever you want to call them) I had wanted to write for a while hoping it would help some of my friends and others if it interested them.

Obviously I didn't want to put out crap, no matter if sold or free, I wanted it to be worthy of the reader.
I at least wanted people to think it worth reading like the last (free) one I did for a forum community.

Yet I knew it would never be "perfect" as they never are (is there a perfect book?) but I just couldn't get to grips with it, not in a sense it made me comfortable putting it out there. It plain stressed me out, obvious as I posted recently it didn't help.

I kept rewriting it, rearranging it etc, never really getting it to sit right.

So I stopped, sod it, but then...

Something happened just a couple of days ago that made me rethink it all, now I think I have a better way to make it work for the user.

Here lies a dilemma though...my ears!

I'll explain...it matters.

A great friend I have known online for several years now has come back into action after a short period of absence, I don't blame her to be honest... having started online at a similar time and walking this path along with her to a point I can see why the break was needed...being hunched over the damn pc night after night does take its toll...in more ways than one, but now Kim is back.

No doubt back with a different perspective, a fresh vigour to do the things the way it should be done, that is utilising the knowledge and experience gained over that time "doing it all" night after night.

I know that feeling!

I forget what I know...and yet assume others know as much about whatever at times, when we all know better than to assume!

I realised that no matter how the book I was doing turns out, it will never please everyone, it will even bore some possibly, depending on them and what they already know.

In fact it's my friend Kim who I host this blog with, well Kim has created something I felt was worth grabbing...and yes I grabbed it the other night and I tell you this much, it's a product I would normally get last, or second from last at least...of all the digital formats, given the choice I prefer to read.

As with anything you follow the system itself is what matters, and the fact people will be able to make sense of it, understand it and follow it through is the value of it.

The system is a set of videos, by which I mean screencast style videos showing you exactly what is to be done, how and where while Kim or whoever speaks explains the "action" while doing the action.

There was my dilemma...I can't hear the damn things!! *sigh.

But you know what? I didn't need to hear them to see the value of them and understand them.

Granted out of the many, I have only looked at the ones that I needed to look at...so far, that is ones I knew I could learn something from as some of them I know about anyway through my own experience, although I will watch them all!

Interestingly...

It got me ripping my book/report apart again and the reason for that was the videos show alot of what I wrote of, but watching the videos with no sound was an eyeopener!

I could guess at some of what Kim or whomever spoke talked of during the videos but even then it would be a guess...instead I got a completely different perspective of the videos themselves, the whole experience was strange yet interesting.

Sometimes it's a blessing that my ears are crap!

So now I got started  thinking about writing a complimentary style report(s) to go with the videos, depending on each video I could do a short report, or maybe a bigger report covering a few videos at once, just some thoughts, tips, ideas, even added resources etc, no idea if worth doing yet.

I could send each to Kim first, see if they were anywhere near what the actual narration is... that will be interesting, for both of us no doubt, after all there are sites on the videos I have never heard of, likewise I am likely to know sites Kim has yet to know of.

It may give Kim a new perspective on the videos.

See, Kim has gone way further down the path of online success than I have, so I knew I would get value from what I needed to see, learn...thankfully I got that too.

Kim has been at the other end of the scale I have yet to (not sure I would like to now) go, that is being a boss of sorts, hiring others...others who as Kim put it "dream of sacking their bosses"...you know, pretty much everyone in a job, do people envy bosses?

So, not so long ago Kim sold all her business, online business that is, Kim is a nurse by day but Kim is also a family person and I can see why that hunching over the pc would affect family life, being single that is living alone, I guess for me it's not the same. Understandable when family comes first.

As I said, Kim is back at the old passion...yet keeping it simple, effective and manageable no doubt.

Kim has gone back to the basics she knows works, stopped all the madness and back to what got us into it in the first place but with the knowledge of what works, how it works, stripped it bare... plus created the videos showing you just that, no shortcuts to success, just following a system and do it right, work at it until it pays off.

Rinse, repeat until you have enough...no more, no less, to much is too absurd.

Residual income is the aim really, the holy grail of wealth isn't it? Not the money...the freedom.

There lies the reality of what people strive for, repeat payments for one time work and daily freeing up time to live, to enjoy.

One way to do this is online with internet being the biggest marketplace of them all there is always going to be ways to create value, if you know how to, where to and the why, and there are many different ways.

The videos go a long way to helping with that and cutting out what huge amounts of time it takes to "learn it for yourself" at your own pace, you know, by experience, and I know from my own it will save time, not something anyone can afford to waste.

In effect these videos are your shortcut on the curve well trodden by many of us, still being trodden for many.

I also know some of you will probably be that new to it you need a little more in a sense that both myself and Kim can easily forget what we know, we forget what it was like before we started...in your position maybe?

We know how easy it can be to overcomplicate things too, leading to not doing.

I hardly ever promote much on here and what I do I have usually tried it, used it, liked it and would recommend it to anyone, most are evergreen, yet as I already said, I cannot hear the words spoken so I obviously can't comment on that, or voice or content spoken! (Sorry Kim!)

These videos are Kim giving great value, but I also want to give all those who grab these videos through this system link added value, by way of the short reports, whichever I do or which are needed...freely, that I hope will help with getting going utilising the videos better, faster.
I send these to those who buy through that link as the payment goes to me, so I then know your email to send you these...

See Kim has set this up so I get paid when you buy... now you maybe asking why the heck has she done that and why not just buy from her directly?

Good question and in a way it shows the point exactly. (Reading between the lines on this post I mean).

This is affiliate marketing in action, something you learn of in the videos. yet this is affiliate marketing with a small difference, instead of getting a % of the payment like most affiliate set ups I get all of it if you use these links, so you are also helping me out in a big way.

Yet, as soon as YOU buy these you can also then do the same as what I am doing now...earn 100% from anyone else buying through your link... if you think it's worth doing which is likely.

How does Kim gain and why the hell would she give it all away?

Because Kim is doing one of the most important aspects of all, building an email list, an ezine list, newsletter list, you know the type and Kim does what's right with that list of people, builds a relationship with them.

Kim values it highly enough to let me, you, anyone profit from those who end up on that list via any products...tells you something right there.

No bullshitting anyone here...likewise Kim is not to take anyone for a "numpty" as she likes to say, I am on her list already and I have no doubt Kim will also share a few nuggets with you too once you receive it...after all she has plenty to teach us, that includes myself.

Simple transparent honesty is right is it not?

You get way more value than the price you pay, Kim gains great people (you) to build a relationship with (she loves helping if she can) and I gain from your generosity too, not to mention you can also promote the system too once you know it works for you, (no doubt you will want to show others by then!) and get the payment(s) from Kims generosity as well.

Then I thought I would try to take one step further...I thought it would be an idea to set up a blog, have it private so only those I choose, IE...those who buy through the link above or this system link can see it, post a comment, ask a question etc so it would be a useful bonus for those who buy it from here to go with the videos and any mentioned reports I do. (Sod it, set the blog up already, will just email the link as people buy)

So what next?

Grab the videos, (right click to open in new tab) save them to a folder on your desktop (videos are separate so smaller downloads), when opening them, extract to the folder it shows, watch the chosen video by clicking the Browser icon, IE...Firefox, Chrome, whatever you use in the folder... don't over do it by watching all one after the other and take notes!

Also expect an email from me with private blog link for you to decide to join or not.

Then take action. Any thoughts, when you come back from buying that is?

Why google search ranking matters

If you are like most people, when you search for something in google or other preferred search engine you most likely scan the results shown, usually paying more attention to the top results shown, google knows what people do when they see the results, having tracked it using eye studies, heatmaps, etc...



Scanning the page is the fastest, simplest way you can digest the information without taking in too much irrelevant detail, this is the natural split-second decision making your brain is so good at, it is only when something catches your attention that you start to read the results properly,

This is proof that getting that all important first page result for your site keyword matters and the further up to the left your result are the better.

As you can see getting in any of the slots on the first page will get you eyeballs...whether you get the clicks is another story altogether.

It's a good thing google test these things. :o)

Better still it's great they don't hide the results, here they are sharing it with us.

SEO is an important part of what you should be doing, just the basics is better than nothing.

"Sunset over chesil beach"





A beautiful sunset over chesil beach just as I was walking down the "incline", a steep straight path that leads from the top of the island to the bottom...pretty direct!

I was about 3/4 down by this time...should have walked slower! ;o)

BUT...I also videoed the sunset the other night and here it is.... :o)

"Flipping heck!"

Nice day today... here is a picture of the car with the sun on it, just uploaded a small video to youtube but it's waiting to be available.

I will add that as soon as it's done!

UPDATED with video..

As seen below, only short one but my first video upload!

First of many... ;o)







Impressed with the simple uploading at youtube...anyone could use that.

Glad they are at least checked out before being available.


Take care,

"Learning to play guitar"


Not me...yet.

But my youngest son has now got himself a guitar, kindly given to him.
He can now crack on with learning to play it which with the wonder of free videos on youtube, myspace etc should be fun for him to do.

I will also get a guitar sometime, sounds odd being deaf and playing one but the vibration is good as well me hearing it ok.
I thought if I learn he will always be a step in front of me which will keep him motivated too. ;o)

Once he has made some progress and shows he will keep on keeping on an electric one will be next on the wish list. ;o)

Music is a great thing so I am very happy to see him take notice and action.

Take care,

"Cove inn"

This is the pub on the sea wall, I live right behind this and look forward to having a drink on the beach, watch the sun go down.

Would that make a nice video?

The sunset?

I can remember watching the waves pound this pub, going right over the top of it, roughly 50 feet high the waves were.

The last time this happened was the late 80's.

It used to happen roughly every ten years but since the late 80's...it's not happened.
I found this picture showing this as it happened, this is an old picture though.

Hopefully it won't again seeing as my home is behind it and on a lower level!

A wave is not what I want to see from the kitchen window!

"A few degrees"

Like the light beam of the lighthouse, a few degrees width here is a big difference out there.

Set off on the wrong angle and it could lead to the vast nowhere!

One good reason I did the last post! :o)

Interestingly though my readership has gone up since adding pics and writing longer and better posts!

Welcome new readers, thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll be a regular reader now. ;o)

Funny it brings back some great memories looking at this picture, the lighthouse itself.
I used to love laying in bed late on a foggy night (believe me fog gets bad here) and listen to the great long deep bellow of the foghorn, I can hear it in my head now.

Yep I could hear it easy back then, living in Weston street (you locals will know it) it was only just over a mile or two from here so it was loud at times.

You know it makes me think about what it was like here one time in the says of old, where locals used lights to lure boats in, only to shipwreck right on the rocks or beach after being tricked.

Then looted!

What a life that must have been here then!

The caves and tunnels and alsorts here make me wonder, gotta be buried treasure here somewhere!....Ok don't rush... ;o)

Pirates and mermaids!! Gets me daydreaming!

Not to mention the "strangers graveyard" we have here.
It IS an interesting place here, too many younger ones don't really appreciate it yet, if ever they will.

Wouldn't a video here of...


...the sunset be nice?!

Any comments?

"You choose, join in"


I was just thinking... why do I hardly get comments here?
Then one pops up on the top post.... ;o)

Life's a funny old game I tell ya!

I digress... what was I gonna say?

Oh yeah.. the pic reminded me! :o)

I think I'm at a real crossroad in life...NO not an early midlife crisis, I'm not quite that age yet!

More of what direction I go in life and what I do, things are changing whether I think about it or not, I can truthfully pin some of this down to reading or more precisely acting on two books, and having a few chats with a few people, including myself...please don't send the ones in white! :o)

If you are a regular reader of this blog you will have seen all these small things build up to whatever changes there will be, and probably relate to it. I mean I do blog about things in my life, head, whatever so you know it's some reflection of me, real.

By the every nature of blogs it's conversational.

I do feel I know where I am heading but also how too, yet you know you're part of it.
As big a part of it as you want to be in truth, after all it's your choice really, I am just grateful you DO read it, although I like writing you reading keeps me writing it.

But I don't really know what you like me writing about.

You see, I hope to have that camera I need in my hand as soon as I see it really, up to a limit of course, may have a mad rush of buys here or something ( ;o) ) that pushes me faster.

So...summer coming up, lots of pics, videos (you'll laugh or faint) and interesting things going on but I could try to relate these pics or things to things you WILL be interested in...you know for example "how can I relate this experience to (blogging, marketing, whatever?)" topic or viewpoint.

Which way will you choose for me?

I comment on quite a few blogs, even been thanked for it a few times, playing my active part on the blogosphere, and did wonder, as you see at the top of the post ;o) , but realised I simply don't ask you too often enough.

Strange but the ones I comment on often never ask you to comment, so I thought it worked, did on me ;o)

BUT, I will ask you, please comment, help me make sure I DO keep going in the right direction with this.

Take care,





P.s wow the first P's here I think ;o) In case you wondered what books they were I spoke of earlier...It was the "Mindset" one as seen on the sidebar which pays YOU 100% commission, and John Reese's "brain dump" which you can see in previous post or archive.

"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.

"Making money online"

Making money online? Is that really doable and easy? How?

Sick of seeing this asked everywhere, then seeing people get suckered into buying through "purely good copy", meaning there ain't no meat behind it!

That's NOT all the stuff being "hawked" out there, just some, you know what I mean too.

I know...been there, but not for a bloody long time though, seen it all and it's not changed much...but it will now.

Listen, you got instinct for a good bloody reason, it ain't often wrong so LISTEN to it!

Ok...making money online, is it happening?
Yes, but what THEY don't tell you is the work involved with knowledge needed to apply it too.
Just a plan, blueprint, I can give you that! FREE!

I have now produced a couple of things of my own and although early days it WORKS, but was it "easy"?

NO...Simple? Yes.

Create something...market it...sell it.

See, simple. ;O)

Steps for actually doing it is another story, just what they don't tell you in the ebooks, because it's NOT so easy.

Things have changed a fair bit recently though and will continue to change alot, it's EASIER and better for you now then ever really.

DOING it is still up to you.

You wanna be one of those who are "making money online"?

There IS some work involved, so...

Still...wanna be one?

There may be some small spending if you want to speed things up, not much, but you could see it come back pretty quick, so...

Still game?
Think it's ONLY those in the know who make money?

Ok, a hypothetical scenario...

I glanced out of the kitchen window and spotted the neighbour working on his lovingly self built and personalised Harley Davidson in his yard.

"He is always mucking about with that thing", I muttered to no one but the empty room.

Half an hour later after breakfast and checking my site stats! ;o) I take the washing out of the machine and proceed out the back to hang it to dry. "Alright Dave" I call over to the Harley nut (as I mentally call him), "Hows it going mate?"

I noticed the sad look in his face as he looked over before he spoke, "Not to good mate, you?"

"I'm ok mate, what's up if you don't mind me asking?" hoping in my head I hadn't said the wrong thing, I waited...

"Got booted from work ain't I, not sacked, ya know laid off man"

I nod.."ah bad shit, sorry to hear that mate, been there myself, you got few weeks left then , enough to find another job before the last day?"

"Na mate...buggers done it already, finished, none left now and got a a few months at most before I struggle with mortgage you know, shit eh, bastards", he starts getting a little emotional.

"Might have to sell me bike now, that could pay a good chunk of the mortgage, being in me bloody 50's I paid most off"..."50's, shit who the hell gonna take me on!" it clearly was getting to him.

The thought crossed my mind that he had a camcorder, I had seen him using it to film the bike build and stuff..."well mate, chin up like, you got a camcorder, so you got a computer then?"

He nodded.."laptop thingy"

I smiled..."What you use it for? Alot?"

"Well I use eBay for getting parts for that bloody thing don't I" as he pointed to the bike.

A light bulb moment... "Great"...I muttered, more to myself than him.

A blank stare from him..."great?, wtf great about it, I ain't spending no more, so..." he trailed off..

"Can I check your videos out mate?" I asked.... "yeah, bloody hell pop over and have a beer man" he quickly replied with a sense of a new spark in him, I could almost touch his anticipation..."don't be long will ya" he added...

See, almost that touchable!

A real passion right there.

So, I went round to see them, armed with a notepad a pen, we watched hours and hours of videos, all the while me taking notes...him talking about certain points, more notes...

Early hours of the morning, he said..."Dude, what ya been taking notes about, and what for?"

"Well mate, been thinking, you could use your computer and passion to solve your income issue, after some work put in, you got a heck of head start because you have used eBay, use a PC, know what it is for a start, and probably have INFO here (me wagging my finger to all the vids) that people will pay money for."

"You serious?" he muttered...a slightly dazed yet excited look across his face!

"Yep, you got photos too?"...he nodded, so I handed him the notes...looking a bit like...

How to build your custom Harley!

Money saving DIY videos!

Self service your Harley videos, save money!

etc etc... a rabid hungry and passionate market here...a great niche.

Videos, step by step process,

viral videos,

Pictures on blog...step by step..forum, membership site..

Training videos to buy in membership... pdf's..

The tour videos and show videos, use as content and viral..

$7 reports, build list... $7 videos?

affiliates...Harley sellers, shops etc,

garages advertising on your site etc...

He handed it back to me...a sparkle in his eyes, "so, how do I do all that then?" (Recognise that?)

John Reese and his great gesture

Many of you will know who John is, those who don't soon will... ;o)

John created some great videos that could change your life, well I couldn't use them as I just couldn't hear him talking on them, so John did a fantastic thing and had text transcripts done just for me!

THAT says alot about the man.

If you really want to read something interesting that could really impact your life, should you try it, take a peek at the warrior thread below and grab the offer, you won't regret it.

The thread!

I am very grateful for such a kind thoughtful gesture.

Thanks John, you are the man mate!

Korean madness

Have you seen this crazy video??



That had me cracked up, the girl on the left has a strange way of moving her face... good fun I bet for them, a great example of being unique.

Doubt they realised how popular that would be!!
I have to say that its one of the funniest I have seen so far!
No wonder its viral.

The need for a video


I would love to join the make money online with videos bunch but being deaf  I don't like to see videos myself unless captions or subtitles are there to help me with them, it's frustrating otherwise.

I will be able to create a video, probably do one of me..why would I want to?

Well I know that it will shock a few people once they see the real me, meaning it will surprise alot of you and the perception you have of me... it's human nature to have an preconceived idea of what I am like, the way I speak etc... and I KNOW that people will be surprised because they don't expect a deaf person to speak like I do.

Most people have some vision of what a deaf person is like, it is a shame that it often is a negative thing but hey... it is understandable...we all do it.

I can't wait to give you that shock. ;o)

It's something I have also thought will make me seem more human to you all, not that you don't think I am human of course, just that it will bring me closer to you and your perception of me will change a huge amount.

I mean a HUGE amount... those who know me offline will know exactly what I mean.

I think it will also help my online work alot in many ways... I have some great ideas for videos to help me make money online.

I aim to do other types of video too.

Would watching the sunset here on chesil beach be appealing?
Would a tour of Portland be appealing?

Would a video of me singing talking be appealing?

Missing out again!

With the discovery of the net and it's reach to people I would never otherwise know I felt I stepped into a whole new world.

One where it didn't matter that I am deaf...

Knowing I could read and read without missing out on any thing was a fantastic thing for me.. knowing I could "chat" to others online was also a massive thing to me, as I can't use a phone as you or others would...

I was happy as pig in shit!

Now with the explosion of videos...it looks as though I will start to miss out on good info again.

After all who is gonna put up subtitles for people like me?

No one!

Oh well... at least you can enjoy the videos and you should.

Just feel a little like it is going to all move on again and leave people like me behind again.
