Why an ONLINE Business—Is an online business right for you?

If you are over forty, frustrated in your job, your business, your retirement, whatever…the thought of doing something different has probably crossed your mind. The idea of spending another twenty years or so in a cubicle or working for someone else probably isn’t too appealing. Nor is the thought of having to wait to retirement age…65 plus to learn how to surf or travel the world like you’ve always dreamed of.

Why An ONLINE Business

Why An ONLINE Business

If you’re under forty add another 20 plus years to that thought.

How do you change your situation? Be an entrepreneur!

The dream of owning a business, being the boss instead of being bossed is, in my humble opinion, the REAL American Dream. In fact I think it’s THAT dream that draws thousands of immigrants to our shores every year. It’s the opportunity to have a dream and the ability to ACT on that dream. Read the rest of this entry

Are You a Primal Leader?

Are You a Primal Leader—Do You Draw People to You?

One of the keys of Attraction Marketing is understanding that humans are primal.

While we’d like to think that we have evolved greatly in the 21st century nothing could be farther from the truth. Humans are not much different than they were over 100,000 years ago.

Are You a Primal Leader?

Anyone who has researched paleo diets, primal nutrition, or eating like a caveman understands that while we would like to think that humans have advanced PHYSICALLY over the past 10 or 20,000 years the truth is we haven’t.

Aficionados of the paleo/primal nutrition understand that humans evolved over 100’s of thousands of years. That being said they understand that the recent introduction of grains and dairy to human diets is has not improved our ability to process certain foods.

Humans have for the most part relied upon MEAT and FAT to survive for the vast majority of our existence. That being said, those who are proponents of paleo nutrition believe that human ailments such as diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, and a vast majority of modern ailments are a result of trying to introduce unnatural foods and nutrition to our bodies.

Big Little Ideas

Big Little Ideas—What Turns Little Ideas into Big Dollars?

Big Little Ideas

Anyone with a dream can relate to little ideas that turn into big dollars. Americans especially are enamored with people who come essentially out of nowhere and make it big. One of my favorite examples are Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs. These guys changed the world with a big little idea…the desktop computer.

I know it’s hard to believe that it wasn’t so long ago we didn’t have things like laptop computers, iPads, iPhones, etc., etc.

Now I’m not going to rehash the success Wozniak and Jobs had with Apple. A $600 billion company doesn’t need my help.

What I’d like to discuss is what turns ideas into reality.

Look around you. Every restaurant, every franchise, every major or minor business in this country began as one thing. Do you know what it is? an idea…I said AN IDEA! Read the rest of this entry

Commission Breakthrough Review

Commission Breakthrough Review

I must admit that today I experienced an excruciatingly painful ordeal and I don’t want my readers to relive my agony BUT…in an effort to bring you what I feel is up-to-the-minute information about online marketing I AM willing to some make sacrifices.

Commission Breakthrough Review

Commission Breakthrough Review

I have wanted to do some product reviews since starting this blog but have been somewhat sidetracked due to the actual building, the birth of my first grandchild (a bouncing baby girl!) and life in general. So the dust had settled a bit, the wife only had some grocery shopping to do (she needed to take me for moral support) so I decided to get on ClickBank and do some research.

For those of you not familiar with ClickBank I’ll do a separate post on it in the future. For now just know that ClickBank is a great repository for those interested in affiliate marketing. Affiliates go onto the site can promote products from categories beginning with Arts & Entertainment to Travel and everything in between. Since this is an online marketing blog and an area that I am especially interested in I naturally gravitated to the E-Business and E-Marketing niche in the marketplace. Read the rest of this entry

Multiple Streams of Internet Income

Multiple Streams of Internet Income

I was recently reading a blog by gentleman from Brazil entitled “Americans Are Stupid?” Now before anyone blows a blood vessel make sure you notice he asked the question. It was a great blog and the bottom line of course is that he admires Americans. He was asking the question after reviewing a YouTube video with Empower Network Co-founder David Wood. In the video David shows, among other things, how STUPID it is for ANYONE to work for ONE boss, company, client, whatever.

Multiple Streams of Internet Income

Multiple Streams of Internet Income

As David so eloquently puts it he’d rather get $10 a month from 1000 people than $10,000 a month from one.

WHY?

Well it’s easy…just do the math. Now I am certainly NO proponent of mathematics in public so what you are about to see should not necessarily be viewed by small children or people with
weak stomachs. Read the rest of this entry

MyLeadSystemPro Review

 

MyLeadSystemPro has been taking the Internet by storm since 2008. One of the first companies dedicated to educating mulit-level marketers in the intricacies of the World Wide Web; in four short years the company has produced hundreds of successful entrepreneurs and spawned at least one other major company dedicated to helping network marketers move from traditional MLM to online marketing.

Tapping the resources of some of the most successful MLM producers and successful Internet entrepreneurs, MLSP brings tried and tested methods of 20th century multi-level marketing into the high-tech, social media-centered 21st century.

Before the Internet came along network marketers were limited in their abilities to prospect. In the 20th century the rule of thumb in the MLM community was to prospect to anyone within arm’s reach. If someone held still long enough you’d approach them, get a business card and put them on their list.

Marketers spent their time handing out business cards, making phone calls, cold calling, etc. all designed to build a list and determine interest in their opportunity. These methods worked but were limited by geography. It was nearly impossible for a new marketer to reach out beyond their own hometowns or anywhere outside of a night’s drive to prospect for members.

Can You Help the Economy?

Can You Help the Economy

Can You Help the Economy?

Now that’s a question…can YOU help the economy and if so, how? In case you haven’t noticed, the U.S. economy has been in the doldrums for quite some time now. In fact the world economy is in one hell of mess.

We get conflicting reports from the media about are we or are we not in a recovery. I’ll leave that question unanswered because I’m sure you have your own opinion one way or another. Regardless of where you stand on a recovery the economy can ALWAYS use a boost from dedicated individuals willing to help out, right?

Haven’t we been encouraged by political leaders to, “Spend heavily so we can encourage business growth and get put more people back to work.” Isn’t the U.S. government trying to “spend” its way out of the fiscal mess we find ourselves in? Hmmm take a look at this video: Stop Spending Our Future Read the rest of this entry

Does Facebook Make Money

Does Facebook Make Money?

Does Facebook Make Money

Does Facebook Make Money

This morning as I was listening to one of my favorite talk show hosts and he made an interesting comment about Facebook. In his opinion Facebook was indicative of all that is BAD about our economy because Facebook doesn’t “produce” anything.

The host was lamenting how “unlike the old days” when America produced “things” such as buggy whips and horse-drawn carriages Facebook could show nothing tangible coming off of a production line.

He was, in fact, discussing Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram for $1 billion. Money for the acquisition coming from, according to the host HAD to come from Facebook’s looming IPO which some estimate could bring in as much as $5 billion dollars – where else could they come up with that kind of money?

Blog for Dollars

Blog for Dollars

In yesterday’s post we talked about the Coke analogy of building a business on volume. Coca-Cola made billions by placing millions of soda machines around the world where people could put their coins in and purchase high volumes of 12-oz sodas.

The goal of a online marketing was to drive thousands of people to a SINGLE website where they could then purchase a product or service. Again, however, the goal was volume. How then does one “drive” thousands of people to their website? Although there are a number of ways to get people to a website, today we focus on the web log or BLOG.

Blog for Dollars

Blog for Dollars

A blog can be many things but generally it is a journal of one’s ideas. Blogs come in many shapes and sizes. Many are nothing more than rants, raves, and reviews.

Some statistics point to over 100,000,000 blogs on the Internet! Most of those blogs are not in it for the money, however, these bloggers are in it, generally for self-fulfillment.

Since you are reading this blog, however, and this is an online marketing blog, and marketing is a fancy word for sales I’m pretty confident that you dear reader are on the Internet to make money and if you blog you will… Read the rest of this entry

The Coca-Cola Analogy

In case you didn’t know the Coca-Cola Corporation is a multi-billion dollar company. Started in 1886 the company began selling its new beverage for $0.5, that’s five cents. How did a company selling a beverage for a nickel go from zero to over $50 billion dollars in under a century you ask? One word….VOLUME. Read the rest of this entry
