About Bkb2012
Joined February 2008
Welcome Wealthy Affiliate buddies ! What brought me here has much to do with writing an Internet Marketing seminar for future fellow marketers.

Whether you are a network marketer or an affiliate marketer, it makes no difference. We're all part of a very powerful group!

I entered my Internet marketing career following the sale of my martial arts school...concluding an MBA a few years later. I work with ...maybe you know this group...The Moody Blues and Mr. Justin Hayward on his website. That's how real this stuff is.

Work online has included Internet marketing study with a few of the world's most successful Internet marketers. This is where I first started to develop early Internet marketing skills, and to eventually meet Mr. Hayward.

I share the names of some of my IM coaches from time-to-time, and I open the door to information they taught me. Some content is free. Some of it will be had for an affordable fee

My goals are to help others move online but to do it well...oh yeah...while being consistently paid well !

With the 'Great Recession' still underway, we're questioning everything we previously knew.

Additionally, we're sitting in the midst of a powerful individual transformation.

You could say that we're moving from hierarchical (dominated) business into individual empowerment, but it's not being accepted too easily by companies mainly because they haven't shifted their mindsets to readily include entrepreneurial individuals.

Old money is faltering because old consciousness folks have relied on a win lose ideal. We'll just call this taking "shortcuts" when they might have chosen better.

In February 2012, very powerful people are stepping into the limelight to show you a better way.

In MBA executive arenas, many business people call this time, 'The New Economy', and it's well known in economic and senior managerial circles.

There are blue and red tide business mindsets clashing.

Blue tide means everyone works together to help those involved succeed.

Red tide is the..."Forget You Jack, I've Got Mine" mentality, but it's not working well anymore. I cite those who own massive retail store chains or banks. In the days that follow this year, you will see the rift widen...between those who want a better world and those who merely want to exploit it.

I'm here to share upper executive help without you forking over $32,000 and more to get it. I share product creation at the individual level, I emphasize writing effective ad copy to convert inquiring minds into regular readers (and buyers), and I address ways to build the golden buyer lists! I'm big on blogging (because it's very inexpensive). I encourage all marketers to offer their best service and to personally test everything before they move anything.

I share corporate information generally reserved for corporate stakeholders and board members (the stuff they don't want you to know). I pull in MBA executive management into business operations online so that you may build a very strong, core marketing team of your own.

I encourage you to build your best campaigns so that others will readily promote you -- where the solid $$ is.

Why share MBA content? They hire front line employees in companies, but their main job is to maximize inventory turnover, reduce operating costs wherever possible, and secure highest investment payouts for key stakeholders (& stockholders). Management directs and integrates operations across several corporate departments, but these managers report daily and weekly results to key stakeholders about management outcomes. By being armed with some of this knowledge, you are empowered to operate your business well.

I show you how to protect your own corporate interests.

There is a persistent hope that our New Economy will include a time where individuals finally gain their financial foothold, but some of us online now believe that the Internet delivers now.

Personally speaking, off-liners not incorporating the Internet are managing business as they always did so they will not recognize the inherent value in what you're doing. If they disagree, it is because they either did not learn what was involved online, they didn't include updates in their own businesses, or they didn't consider the power the net offers.

The smart ones embrace new change, but they'll do it when YOU can show them what's needed (a website that's interactive and store customer information and markets products on the back end)...

Consider pulling in certified training in your article marketing and ppc campaigns. Many of us are still working on these goals, as we digest massive content related to superaffiliate marketing.

To spot lagging businesses offline needing your help, look to your everyday professionals. The ones who do very well are right on course with Internet changes...and/or if they've hired webmasters to construct sites (that often do not properly work), this is one of your inroads to pay!

These people (who are offline) may or may not be fully aware that they're losing prime business, but it's a great opportunity for Internet marketers to help these businesses move online and to show them how to market products/services to their client databases. To do this, you must be guided and stay in contact with many others doing similar things online.

If we address what's called latent adoption of 21-Century marketing, it's happening in the most professional areas of business, simply because these people don't know what Internet marketing really entails. Many folks try to move online without investing in any Internet marketing education, but this can be and is often a very costly mistake!

Our success online depends on several things like: 1) how well we maintain the public trust...and 2) how well we work together.

In future posts, I talk a lot about operating and managing integrated e-business. This means we're looking at legal aspects of Internet Marketing, and we're pulling in financial strategies you can use to optimize your business success. To satisfy basic needs, we pull in a successful blueprint strategy.

A Bit About What I've Done

As a retired consultant from the martial arts industry, I worked with school franchise owners at local, regional, and national levels. It was my business to help senior instructors maximize their profits by pulling in more efficient operations, but the hallmark trait of operating a franchising business was -- we would help one another. To date, this is the healthiest business model I've experienced.

Some of my extra marketing goals include identifying and supporting other burgeoning Internet marketers by supporting them in their online growth, done at superaffiliate levels. If you're new and don't know anything about online commerce, you are the perfect candidate!

While I am a business development specialist, there's nothing more intriguing than giving someone uplifting news or helping people manifest their success by "just tackling what works", and I'm not interested in merely envisioning what should be real.

I have published several tutorials at WA and will continue to do so, but I am open to all WA members teaching me what they know best. Some tutorials do well. Some don't. What's more important is that you can step right out into WA's traffic to shine the spotlight on yourself! I know of no other place where you can do this because the list of clients is protected (often when it works against you) Your success depends upon how well you advertise your name, follow up with people, help them, and give them a happy buying experience.

In the sharing we depend on here at WA and outside of WA, it is in this kind of involvement where one becomes their best.

To be your best, you must first put yourself out there with others by satisfying a law called "The Law of Participation". This law puts into affect all other natural laws for pay.

Hopes are to operate my own membership site and to help others self-publish. I am working on marketing at superaffiliate levels, and I am developing several products right now. I am always working on my basics too.

I suggest anyone who likes these ideas for themselves would fare well to work with a lot of people. It takes major time and energy to manage a group and show them what really works but if you like that idea, you must first master 1 on 1 prospecting.

I am developing other Internet marketing programs for newbies and intermediates as I ease people into Internet Marketing. The most challenging part of Internet Marketing learning the core basics.
It doesn't have to be tough so that's why WA has created it's Action Plan, their paid certification courses, and even their WA Blog & Funnel system. These items help you identify quickly what you demand most.

What Others May Not Realize

IM = yet another 4 year degree, but don't let that stop you.

If you're like me, I think people want more voice.

They want their own imagery and they want their own icons used in place of words.

Kyle & Carson are always looking for better ways to use pictures.

They have pulled in a lot of drag and drop user-friendly (functionality) and tools designed to maximize your campaigns. It's about "nixing" difficult coding, not wondering about how to best target the keywords "that pay" by reaching consumers at the end of a buying cycle). This is what we're after as paid markters. Identify people later in a research process so you catch them at the time they're ready to purchase from you.

Caveat --

Because the Internet is still evolving, some superaffiliates are just now developing their programs in cohesive ways. I will cite Ed Dale and a few private friends of mine, Terry Duff, Gino Niccoli and Jeff Weissman. These guys teach Internet marketing at the network marketing and affiliate level, but our programs are mainly geared at transitioning network marketers into Internet Marketing at product creator levels! We want powerful marketers who will give their all back to themselves and their families...so they can take the time they need off -- with pay!

Kyle & Carson have become very special to me, and I've recently started working with Marcus on the 30-Day Article Marketing Club. In time, you will get there too. Just be persistent. Update your blog. Post anything you feel or think about -- no matter how simple it may seem. Head to the top whenever you're uncertain about anything and only work with the best, most qualified people. They will spare you major time lost with searching, wondering, or spending your $$ needlessly.

Kyle and Carson have upgraded WA to an extensive operating platform and they've beefed up their servers so there will be far less disruption (and faster load times for your sites and blog). But.., in all good things, we all face some growing pains. The goal is to reduce difficulties for you!

We have invested considerable time, effort and personal resources to bring you what you need.

For domains registered late July, 2010, there are new nameservers so you'll want to keep an eye out for that information...DNS Nameservers 3 and 4 will get you what you need (WA Blog & Funnel).

Don't change your password once you set up your blog because WA can't access another password. It has something to do with how things are set up under original data storage.

More changes are coming to reflect current IM demands. WA does care about its members profiting. As of now, we are testing 2 group concepts -- 1) The 30 Day Article Marketing Club and 2) The Pay Per Click Club. Marcus directs the first, and Kyle directs the second. As far as I know, these clubs are doing well and they are just now beginning to publish their findings!

As of November 2010, it is one belief that Google wants Internet marketers to put accurate information into people's hands by way of natural publishing. So if you're happy to write unique content, this is fast becoming the "real performer" online..

They shut down 100,000 merchants this past year (2010) because of lofty promises and poor product quality, but there were many advertisers who hit their business opportunities too hard. If you're planning on creating your own products one day, you want to keep that fact in mind. Emphasize benefits of your products and services, emphasize what you can do for others, but keep your business opportunity (make $$ from home) more subtle. Share what the real value of your products/services will be.

Whenever you promote something, make certain you have personally tested a product firsthand....or if you can't do that, go through your Internet marketing network to ask others what they know. This will spare you future difficulties with unhappy customers because 1/2 the time, Internet marketing products don't make the cut. There are some products/services I will or won't recommend to people. Bear with me here. It's important you know what's happening online in the event you move into ppc.

Google Shuts Door On China

U.S. authorities are actively prosecuting cybercriminals, and they're going as far as extraditing those people back to the U.S. for active sentencing.

While I am not an attorney, I pull in business law and include some general business accounting to help individuals get what they need. I cite use of the software, Quicken or Quickbooks. Quicken is less expensive and easier to use for newbies. Quickbooks is the business version.

As I share some legal aspects of IM ownership, it is only done to help you avert trouble before it ensues. Own your domain. Have it listed under your credit card and no one else's name. That way, a webmaster won't own your business by default. Many good people have lost their businesses in this 1 step so rent your domain exclusively under your name or pen name (alias).

Give Google What They Demand

I specifically mention giving potential consumers of your products/services rich content sites and very helpful articles (with content they can use now).

Google wants to see complete websites where content flows readily on that site from one page to the other without being duplicated over and over again, and they want to see blogs agreeing with that parent site.

Marketers who have these 2 essential, optimized ingredients are loved by the search engines. I cite the WA Blog & Funnel system to help newbies get a very fast start!

Links on a website must be interactive from page to page on your major website so that consumers can click on articles, research what they need from you, and find alternative recommended resources.

When you are new, it takes time to learn linking, and it takes time to know where you should check all links. If you ever offer a free report carrying an active link at the bottom of each page, be sure to look there first! This broken link will show you lots of traffic and no sales!

Google wants web searches to make sense to people online, and they're asking marketers to offer ads on hand-held devices. This way, the net will be more accessible to everyone on the go..., and yes...it will be far more profitable.

Be patient with technological learning. The major superaffiliates are working on this reality for you...to remove technology so that you're not struggling..so that you can focus on marketing and promotions for pay.

21st-Century Marketing...

We have many businesses...again that are outdated in their marketing. Our job is to help them move from 20th-Century business into 21st-Century marketing as stated earlier, but we are readily moving more towards 'Real Time Information'. The eventual evolution of this type of Internet will be far more intuitive. We're some time away from realizing that kind of reality but it will be amazingly powerful!

What I've learned in the 5 years working online is --

1) It takes time to get the word 'out there' so you must find free to low-cost methods advertising your name: us free ads, squidoo, ezine articles, go articles, search warp, hub pages, U Tube videos, and social networking.

2) As of 2010, Facebook is coming up as an interesting resource for paid advertising, but that advertising isn't as targeted as Google pay-per-click just yet. Word in closest marketing circles reveals that Facebook paid ads are 1/2 the cost of Google ppc! We are watching and awaiting more news from those testing both avenues.

Facebook applications are often misunderstood but when someone enters a keyword phrase appearing in your campaign, your ad is triggered. It's conversational in nature so if 2 people at Facebook talk about swimming, when your ad appears, you don't know if they're looking for swimsuits or dissolving chlorine tablets. You can get a hit or a miss that way, but FB wants to become the next major search engine....as far as we're seeing. To get the most recent November update on Facebook advertising, I'll recommend Jonathan Budd online. Please don't buy his things. Just get the free content to see what this realm is about. To get an ad approved, you have to get people to opt-into your "LIKE" button and send them to a fan page. If you send them directly to a landing page, your ad will be rejected. Budd verifies this was his primary struggle.

3) You can dip your feet into the Internet marketing pond by forming your own profile ...first at WA...and working your blog here frequently. This step should not be skipped! As you grow, your blog grows.

4) Move into the buddy network here first. Bookmark everything. Then connect to others daily. This will build your group or personal following. When you need any help, go into the forums and use your personal networks to help you out. Don't hesitate to contact any of us for help. We always offer our best at any given point in time. If we are updating content, we will tell you so.

If you want to play at early advertising and learn how to drive traffic outside of WA, use some of the social sites like Plaxo, Linked-In, Facebook, Twitter, and Facebook (free). You may wish avoid playing extended games at Facebook because research indicates that these games open your network to identity thieves.

MySpace is more secure than Facebook, and it's better suited to people in entertainment, but i'ts more difficult to add new buddies.

Twitter and FB get you going. You can form your own marketing group at FB!

5) I'm big on positioning people here at WA, as long as they're willing to connect to others regularly.

The key to success here is to access the forums. Find out what people are trying to solve. Then write tutorials based on what they need. Sometimes you'll do well. Sometimes you won't. That's ok. Doing is better than stopping.

When you're new, the forums are a mystery. As you connect and write, you'll begin to see who's doing what and why. This is important so you can seek out proven resources, form future teams that work, and maybe assess joint ventures.

While I'm not a big fan of JV, you don't have to be rich to move online. That's where your buddies will save your life. They pull you up when you're down and visa versa.

6) As a major rule, I've learned -- as long as you stick to proven marketing methods and get help from solid, profitable people, you'll get what you need when you need it.

7) It's important that you find ways to grab and hold an audience's attention by using what's called 'mastered positioning' within any market setting (better called a sub-niche). That means that if we can get you over your "initial learning fear", you're advertising your name only and you're looking for a market you can dominate.

8) It's important to hold the interest of people in your campaigns long enough to establish a connection. You want to find out what people need and want most. You gain that advantage by emphasizing trust and rapport.

9) The earliest marketing ties you establish will usually form your core working group but you'll later sift and sort to get to your most credible, helpful marketers.

You may wish to form a marketing team because 'going it alone' online can be tough on you and your business.

Again...remember above all...these earliest connections will help you figure out what what you can give to others, based on what others want -- (SBM, solution-based marketing). In the very least, you can exchange your expertise with other buddies. I have repeatedly learned that this is important for your overall marketing success.

10) When you find out precisely how your segmented market or sub-niche thinks...and you know exactly what they purchase, you'll be on your way to higher conversions.

Conversions can lead to higher click-through rates (CTR's) on a website, and they will refer others to you if you do a good job of offering rich content in your newsletter. They can find you by viewing your series of free videos or your free and paid downloads.

CTR's mean someone has gone and clicked on a link you've provided. The goal is to offer them what they need at the right time, and to close business but reduce refund risks.

Last Few Words

New folks require help setting up their campaigns because they're not sure what the A, B, C steps involve.

This might include setting up an autoresponder (A-Weber).

The first mistake most marketers make is that they forget to secure names and e-mails.

So hundreds of people have gone by and they have built no list. I've done that.

It is in your list that you will have repeat chances to offer people products/services.

11) When you own several affiliate links over time, keep in mind that it takes time for many newbies to acquire these additions. You can get affiliate links for FREE in most cases, but you may wish to market the products/services you use firsthand. Affiliate links are everywhere online.

12) If you want your own network marketing website, it should showcase your name. If you want an affiliate marketing website, it should showcase a first name or an alias name. When you're moving lots of different products, you'll promote many companies so your job is to keep corporate names neutral, but list benefits/value of your products (not features). Features come in handy when consumers are purchasing at that point in a buying cycle.

In doing this much, you can use 'Attraction-Based Marketing', attracting like-to-like, then screening out people who are less serious by identifying those who are destined to make a difference.

12) Never lead with a business opportunity online.

Again...Google shut down merchant accounts when they promised "gold for no work". Few prospects ever care about these realities unless they're moving into Internet Marketing.

13) You may encounter Mark Joyner's Irresistible Offer.

It contains 3 things: 1) What's the offer going to truly involve? 2) How much will this offer really cost me (in the long run)?, and 3) What will I really get? Wrap your marketing messages (ad copy) around this irresistible offer and you'll be irresistible.

13) Finally, people will only want YOU!

Hang in there WA buddies...and don't give up!

I will be bringing you more content so stay tuned. I am sharing what's called the masters series for those of you drawn to this information.

Your success is important and timely and there's lots of room for IM'ers in cyberspace!

If you have any Q's, I'm here. On the right-hand side of this blog, you will see Add 7 Reps A Day. This site addresses MLM needs.

I highly recommend affiliate marketing and product creation.

I'm always testing content here at WA before I take it outside of WA, but I do look for better ways to bring you best marketing information consistently presented with what I know at any given moment in time.

Feel free to check out any of my links below. As of October 2010, I am rewriting my FREE report so you have to click on Add 7 Reps A Day and Can-MLM. On the right-hand side of my business blog, there's an opt-in box where I'll offer the new report in a few days. Again..that newsletter targets MLM'ers, but the Wealthy Affiliate blog will offer diverse marketing help at all levels of IM work.

The best thing about being a member at WA is that you can see what other marketers are doing!

Some links lead to professional campaigns.

My home-based-business blog addresses numerous topics like: what it means to 'think in CEO terms', it talks about how you can position yourself online without going broke, and more. In that blog and in my Facebook marketing group, I offer marketing updates, tips, and tricks that work.

I am building a Wealthy Affiliate blog in 2 places, but I share LIVE WA Blog & Funnel updates with others working this unique system. I highly recommend you set one up.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to adding you as my buddy!

Phil, The best autoresponder is A-Weber, Constant Contact, or Get Response (see Google). For $19.99/month...therabouts, you can own your own client list... and that's where genuine business resides. The most powerful marketers are usually doctors, celebs, or anyone who has a passion for services & products 'they create'. The only reason why people will buy from you is that they look to your expertise, they look to your continuous delivery/& they want you. Most individuals formulate their own lines so that they can retain a larger percentage of profits. Affiliate marketing varies... but has to be carried out cleanly so that Clickbank won't close your account. The best affiliate marketing carries with it highest commissions of 60% or more. Now, in the case of MLM, it can be tricky when you don't own a physical business where products enhance the business itself. MLM is structured in a way to so as to not pay out even when you hit success. Terry Duff (Google) will confirm. That's why it's not usually recommended here at WA. These MLM systems aren't set up to benefit distributors, on average... but if you have a private practice... or a massage therapy business... or some type of business that delivers a service, the MLM product is best moved as an enhancement for your business. Personally, MLM is a tough business model & you don't need the MLM marketing materials geared towards distributors building the company, itself. However, MLM is 'a cost-effective advertising & distribution system' where the distributor is most often a consumer. When an MLM is carried out propertly, commissions are real... yet the best man for that kind of specialized learning is Terry Duff. He's extremely competent as an MLM man. His marketing is very clean & trustworthy. Terry is a 'pool man' who learned to market MLM using legit marketing strategies. Another way to market MLM products is through teleconferencing... where you bring in distributors two-fold: 1) through the biz opp ... (as you guide them and assist in their success)... and 2) through the teleconferenced group session. You don't promote the biz opp off-hand. It's an openly-disclosed side-benefit for the product purchase program .. (sold in the teleconference only by 'value & need and proper qualification'). If consumers don't want the biz opp, you're leading with a program & product purchase. In order to become a very good affiliate or MLM'er, you must master prospecting & closing. Because doctors don't use telemarketing themselves, they'll outsource the call center. The autoresponder itself is your most legitimate way of building your contact base. It's a direct way to capture contact information, but it must be managed ethicallly because you sell to consumers direct via email. I look to M.D.'s for this approach most ... because they do it cleanly and ...hopefully ... ethically (most of the time). Personally, I favor Kyle & Carson's approach to marketing (without MLM involvement) because they adhere to all cyber laws. Car dealerships, restaurants, or your favorite businesses are great to watch online. They all do the same... and they do it very well. Look to major retailers for add'l examples. Brokerage houses do the same. Banks do the same. Just pull up your favorite banks & you'll see a specific order in which someone information is captured: Google search, website, data capture, then services/product offers appear for purchase.

Internet Marketing so very extensive. What typically occurs is that an individual should master a primary area such as teleconferencing/closing..., prospecting through some method of advertising..., or focus on copywriting or web mastery. One cannot do it all.

Hello bkb,
I accidentally happened on your blog "Real Autoresponder E-Mail For MLM/WA Promos" (very informative) whilst asking WA if there is a Autoresponder plugin for WordPress.
I would be interested in knowing what Internet marketing programs for newbies you have because I am just that but would like to know if something faster and more productive than the "authority blogging" is available.
Please tell me what has affiliate marketing and product creation that you recommend with blogging.
Finally I would like to know if I will need an autoresponder and where get the training for it.
Thank you much
Best/Phil.

Phil -- Affiliate marketing tends to be a first start...but one must be very careful to locate "only the best retailers" ... who will pay out more than a scant offer. The best affiliate marketing involves a larger payout of more than 50% ... and these are typically programs which involve "major ticket items" ... such as cars or luxury items.

Love your profile and the fact you started WA IN 2008 and the fact you are still active..... could not agree more with your point I copied below from your profile...

"You could say that we're moving from hierarchical (dominated) business into individual empowerment, but it's not being accepted too easily by companies mainly because they haven't shifted their mindsets to readily include entrepreneurial individuals"
Reply

Correct. For those who study independent marketing ..., build their lists ..., and market ethical services to individuals, we are a force for individual good. As we are empowered, we empower others who want to live life on more independent terms. I cite CPA's and attorneys... or even Certified Financial Planners. CFP's are 2nd and 3rd careers initiated by former doctors or practicing lawyers because this financial knowing bolsters individual power in a very major way. Internet marketing is a core part of that success, and offline marketing is just as important (citing the use of ... inexpensive traffic boosting methods like the use of post cards)!

Looking forward to making more WA buddies. I had been out of WA for a while working with the JHayward, Moody Blues, online. Shhh..., it's our secret.

jdeHaan001. Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate everyone here immensely. You are the reason why I'm working with the best..., to bring others finest information they can readily see. I cite also Downton Abbey as a perfect online model. Last night, I added Gerson Therapy to my informal business blog. Just google Gerson Therapy. They're saving cancer patients diagnosed in stages 3 & 4 by pulling them back from the brink of death, but they're also saving nutritionally depleted individuals too. You'll find them in Tijuana, Mexico and in San Diego CA. as they now certify more individuals in this powerful "non-toxic" therapy.

JohnnyMark1 Premium
That's excellent about your promoting Max Gerson's therapy. I've read about him, as well as other non-toxic therapies for all kinds of conditions. Oh, how the establishment (big pharma, the insurance industry, and their co-conspirators in high-governmental positions) just want to keep this kind of information out of the public spotlight. It just threatens their enormous profit streams, while they get filthy-rich poisoning us, while they attack natural therapies, and organic supplements.
Good Luck!

You bet! Stay tuned. The easier a campaign is set up...between the 3 primary elements of a website, a matching blog, and active Facebook interaction (with pay buttons attached to the website on the back end), the better the campaign works. It's far easier than people know. It just takes time to build a fan base!

Here There Stepping Stones. I know what you mean. I hit my head against the wall for about 6 years...and then BAM! It started to click. The key is to "associate on a volunteer basis" with someone big. Do the smallest work possible...usually starting in promotions of ...say...in my case...a rock band you really dig. Then keep the resume listing of what you're doing: article marketing (for example), video uploads, writing ad copy, commenting in a Rock Band Facebook Profile Page (keeping excitement prior to concerts going strong)...but document everything. I'm working on viable outlets for people so that they can get paid online for articles they write. I cite...writer application for Break Studies dot com. It's challenging to find the legitimate at-home offers, but they are out there. I'll keep people posted as I learn more. Hang in there! Don't give up. This is real but it takes time to find your passionate stride. bkb2012...Barbara.

Here is a program I hope you will take a look at. And a question for you. Why are people so afraid today to take a very small risk (heck no risk right now) in a prelaunch program that can really help them to grow their business by leaps and bounds? Go here now and just take a look around. Just copy and paste the link. Seems like WA won't let it become a clickable link. http://www.zingbizpro.com/?ZBP?=hotbizman
Reply
bkb2012 Premium
Here's why WA won't make it clickable. Google shut down 100,000 BIG Internet marketing gurus who were making massive $$ at individual's expense. They were selling outdated (and barely tested content) ...and many of us paid for it. It was all utter crap (pardon this word). Avoid the faulty promises. Unless you see a balance sheet with cash flow and publically traded information appearing online through a government website (US Gov't), there are too many rip-off artists online. My blog introduces a band that makes $$ online...but it's not their chief pay. The Moody Blues make their living offline, yes...performing on-stage...but while the Internet is a key part of their online ticket sales, it is their music that keeps people coming back. You're after viable business you can see up-front...without "lost offers not readily appearing for you" tucked on the back end.

Henriv -- I know absolutely what you mean. The key is -- according to Travis Sego, Bum Marketer (1 of the primary successors from WA) ...."You don't create the market. You put yourself into the stream of consumption". As long as you try to create the market, you'll lose time/$$/effort. So find what sells, look for "less competition" when possible, then go for it. When you find the market, you'll know. The key is to leverage as much free content as you possibly can. Keep your $$ tucked away safely in your bank account & avoid the big Internet gurus who don't deliver. Simple online marketing is what is needed...and brand your name. Hope this helps. More soon, bkb2012...Barbara.

I'll show you a $6 million dollar campaign "unfolding live". It's very simple...the 3 steps outlined: 1) a solid website people can easily follow...., 2) the blog that matches the website...or in the very least a Facebook page where fans interact...as you build your following...and 3) pay buttons connected to simple products on the website itself. If you could navigate through the links I provided on the Moody Blues Cruise (without forking over $1..don't do it...only study the links and the campaign).....you would see how it all works online.

Totally agree about the shift that is happening 'out there' people want a more 'enlightened' way of doing business; a way that means people are treated well and not used as means to making money.

This is a main them in the book "The One minute Millionaire" by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen - Their goal is to create one million 'Enlightened Millionaires' - I shall be one of them and can highly recommend this book to any other WAs for whom this is also a goal.

Carole -- We've got to stay in touch! I know what it's like to be "just at 1M"..but with the market crashing..., I also know what it's like to be "nearly at zero". I've been on both sides of the fence, but never did I take anyone for granted (by pushing profits only). I think that's the only way one can enjoy their success. I've also learned to always beware of greed, do the right thing when no one is looking, set up win-win situations for all concerned, work like mad to give people high quality service and delivery but without forfeiting family. It's a tough balance.
Are you working the WA blog & funnel? Let me know. I may be able to shorten your learning curve by 2 or 3 years. I You can apply the system to target different niches but perhaps that's something that's forthcoming. Will have to bug Carson about that Q next. Barbara...bkb2012.

Reply
bkb2012 Premium
jatdebeaune -- Hey Lady! I use both. For WordPress.com is much easier to set up than blogger, but the editing window is tight when you're forming a new post. I use both because anytime I form a post on either one, the new post appears on the other blog. This is done by checking a WordPress option to connect Blogger posts to your WordPress.com. The most powerful option is WordPress.org (self-hosted) because it works like a blog (for easier use) but it appears and acts like a website (for best SEO outcomes). Let me know what you want to do and we'll take it from there. Barbara..bkb2012.

Hi there. I'm working through as much as I reasonably can without giving up my life entirely...but I can't remember if I did answer your Q the other day. I have 32 blogs set up like a spider "webwork" so that no matter where people land, they'll find me. But it's major, major work. I think most people fare best if they have 4 or 5 fully developed blogs. Anything more than that isn't efficient or even comprehensive. But..., that's my opinion. I would ask others what they prefer too. What you definitely want for best Google indexing is both a blog and a matching website, kind of like a pair of matched socks!

I've been a franchise operator for 10 years. In that time, I learned making money had more to do with solving people's problems once you obtained their trust. So that kind of trust can only be earned by going out of your way for people who already demonstrate a need/desire/and want for what you have to offer. If that doesn't make sense, well...I can say that people aren't attracted to you because of any product you can move. They are drawn to you because you know how to lead them. That's the ultimate secret.

This space is dedicated to newbie marketers joining WA.

If you're confused or frustrated, you're not alone. During year 1 of marketing, you'll spend a large majority of your time piecing together main puzzle pieces. Worry not. You're working on your first marketing campaign. I'm here to help. I have been a business owner all my life. I have an MBA in business management 10 year's of franchising experience. I was the main marketing force behind promotions and advertising for my martial arts school.

The information being brought to you at WA is accurate. It's challenging at first but anyone can learn if they focus their minds on the work. The key force is to help others. When you know how to solve the pains/frustrations/or offer joys to others, you will experience more success. But, we have to first help you fish.

Once you zero in on your niche audience, talking to them using their mindset and their words, you'll hit a group of people willing to purchase your recommendations. They will be buying YOU -- the expert. What you learn here at WA is instrumental. You are learning new rules applied to an old paradigm (offline)...and many people need what you have to offer.

Nurturing Your Marketing Success!

You should offer product reviews on solid affiliate products in the form of secondary solutions accompanying the primary set of solutions offered in an article.

Gold system -- works like this. You get 10 gold coins every month. You must give them away to receive them. You can't hold onto them because then they don't hold their value. When people give you 10 gold pieces, you may retrieve them for $10! The idea is to encourage people to help one another...just like in the currency system. When you let go of the gold, it comes back to you in multiple increments...as long as you act in highest accordance with the greater good. Pretty neat, isn't it?

I bicycle through the mountains of Colorado more..., adding weight-lifting...and more...but the exercise comes first before the day begins. Let's stay in touch! Would love to hear more about how you're faring.

If you get stuck, let me know. I'm here to help. The first year was tough because I stepped into full-time marketing and spent a lot of that time first learning copywriting..., Internet Marketing and online recruiting.

TJ,

Happy to meet you! Yes...I've been here .but I like to be very, very active across several networks. I enjoy connecting to people who are also active in the forums. Generating income but have not yet scaled it in an upward manner just yet...still digesting ways to increase traffic using developed keyword research. Have many articles to still publish. Will check out your tutorials.

Troy -- my boy is charming...learning aviation, piano..., doing extremely well in school. Generating some revenue but am still piecing a full campaign together. It takes time, whether people admit it or not. Working with private coach. If you go to Twitter, Travis Sego has an extensive network of I.M.'ers (copywriters/clerical/logo artists...many more). He's one of the superaffiliates who started at WA. Enter a search at www.Twitter.com. If you can't find him, let me know. If you're stuck, I'm open to helping along the lines of what I've developed. Ed Dale's work is another profoundly affordable source of help. I list him on my home based business blog if you want to find out why he's important. Stay in touch! Barbara

TJ,

Sent more gold ! Have a lunch on me. Don't give up. If you have to keep a day job while piecing together the puzzle pieces, we will have skills no one can remove: article marketing/keyword research/autoresponder mastery/ppc/. Might you fare better if you emphasize article marketing...say over ppc? Just a thought. Will look into the coursework you're tackling myself, to get these items under my belt. I'm doing well. Thanks for asking. You? Hanging in there? Sorry to inundate you on the newsletter (testing and revamping content frequency). I am expanding other blogs along WA and affiliate marketing lines but will emphasize articles over ppc. Stay in touch! bkb2012

Hi Fellow WA Buddies!

I am planning additional information for published tutorial help. Here's the biggest point about Internet Marketing:

1) don't give up.

I will be publishing content along "campaign element lines", showing you more of what's basically included in a starter campaign. Once you see what you're looking for specifically, this will help to guide your studies at WA. But, the goal is to get paid while you're learning!

Stay in touch,

adsonbetts,

Hi there. It's natural for family to feel this way because their concerns are legitimate. Here's what I did. I found reputable learning sources. WA is one of them. They don't promote 'get rich quickly'. They do promote business responsibility. But here's what key. I operated my own martial arts school for 10 years so I know what it takes to succeed offline. Online, you need specific tools in place to put a campaign together. Your family won't see this result quite yet. At first, you're focusing on learning. Then, you're building the bus stops in an entire campaign. A lot of people don't understand the Internet. They hear about a lot of horror stories (as it is). But they also don' t know you're in touch with solid people who are proven. Hang in there. Don't let the limitations of family members hold you back because I know how tough this stage of learning can be. If they demand to know more, yes... you could tell them what you're doing (learning, growing ...., building buddies, building blogs, building a website, mastering ad copy so that you can publish articles under your own name). They won't know what this is. Stay in touch. I'll direct you to specifics so that we can get things rolling for you. The big thing is -- can you be patient with yourself in the face of great stress and anxiety? As you learn more, you'll add real tools to your toolbox. I'd like to know how long you've been in Internet Marketing? I'm assuming you're a junior marketer (and that's okay)! You've got the talent to succeed. bkb2012

Adson,

You've identified 2 solid places to go: the library and the coffee house. Why family has to be so challenging about this work -- I can only fathom that they just don't know what it takes to go live online.

But...if you're not sure where to start ...again..., here are the key skills that pay.

1) article marketing
2) p-p-c
3) SEO
4) website construction (I've found a free software download here at WA...but I'm checking it out. It uses WIZIWIG -- What you see is what you get. You don't have to master html. I think there is some CSS (but that's coding that's not too extensive. You can learn about CSS by entering a search at Google).

5) We have to identify what you absolutely enjoy -- either workwise or hobbywise. This will guide you in directions of identifying a profitable sub-niche. This effort is a 1st effort, needed to spare significant losses (cash, time and writing). You don't want to leverage keywords that yield no pay.

6) study ad copy -- this is the backbone for any campaign -- do it over time.

7) you'll baby step your way into this work. At first, there's a lot of confusion and frustration.

8) hang in there.

I tackle puzzle pieces everyday. When I get tired by the end of the day, I stop. Sometimes, you have to take a day off, here or there...just to collect your thoughts.

If you get stuck, let me know and we'll find concrete ways to direct your efforts.

adsonbetts,

Not sure what to think about the potpiegirl. I've looked at her profile and to ask for contributions to a charity, no matter what it is astounds me. We're on the Internet -- not regulated so it's anyone's guess as to whether or not these funds are being applied to what's stated. I'm a skeptic. I am looking for solid ways to share information with my buddies, however. I am combing through the superaffiliate WA program to see how it compares to the regular certification courses. There is a 'slow-roller' technique that has been proven to work..., laid out in a step-by-step fashion..., applicable to those who are new to IM...but these techniques have been used by Travis Sago and Ewin Chia other WA's ! Stay tuned...will share more! Key thing for you -- we get the CONCRETE marketing under your belt. We have to find a sub-niche no one else knows about. That's the key to dominating a smaller market (large enough to support you but small enough so that others won't care...mainly because they won't know about it). Think about the UNIIQUENESS you can bring the world. This is important. Think about everything you've done, have experienced (both good and not-so-godd). This information is something people will pay for. bkb2012

I see you have been here for a few months. It looks like you have your hands full. Speaking of handfuls, we are headed up to Seattle to see our grandkids up there. They have five including triplets getting close to 3-years old. So, are you making some money? I've talked to a lot of members and you are at the time you could be making some money. I joined for a year and have got back my tuition and then some. Still don't have a steady income coming in but I'm writing a lot of articles. Click on my pic for some tutorials you could find interesting. John

That boy is one handsome guy. I'm doing Ok, just not money wise, but I am still in there fighting. October was bad after a good Sept. But business is always sporadic, isn't it. I'm hoping for a better November. I finished the PPC Accreditation course. It is more comprehensive than Beat Adwords, which I already owned. So, I'm going to try PPC again but with much better knowledge. I started the Accreditation Article Writing Course yesterday and after reading one page, I rushed off to add another Squidoo Lens. And how are you doing, my dear? Thank you for the gold. John

Best wishes for a happy IM career! Give it time to piece the puzzle pieces together but don't
give up because the emerging reality is incredible. You can basically make money from home,
working in slippers and jammies...and you can pick and choose your collaborative relationships.

If you get stuck with basic IM steps, feel free to check out my blog. It's devoted
to helping both network marketers and affiliates. The blog shows you how to
set up affiliate marketing on the back end. This offer would apply to any other
WA buddies reading this message.

If you'd like to opt-into my 'VIP Marketing Updates" newsletter, I share various superaffiliate information and network

Nikao,

You've just formed a conscious decision that's way ahead of a flailing majority of IM'ers -- just go for it but form some type of a targeted plan. This isn't so easy at first because, you're correct. It takes some study to figure out just where you'll advanced in IM. But, I'm thrilled to see you formed your own first tutorial! If you get stuck and can't think of what to write for another one, writing tutorials is 1 way to position yourself ahead of all others. Feel free to stay in touch!

So now I doing the eight week action plan and the learning resourses and I am signing up on clickbank. I know like you said before, that I need to take baby steps and that is what I am doing. I am tring not to overload myself with too much information. Since before I notice that I do need to get into article marketing first, so that is what I will work on for now and master that. If you have any suggestion what I should do, I would gladly follow all of you suggestion. Thank you so much adson

I joined this business so I can obtain freedom from working construcion. I am a journey man and I just want to Play and perform music full time. I love to write songs and compose music. I love to work out , Yes I have been doing martial arts for along time in Newark Nj and in New York as well. I love to eventually become a photo journalist and to be able to fly bush planes and write articles about meeting diffrent people and cultures.To write blogs about my opinion about diffenent life situations. First I have to learn how to figure this IM out before I can began to live my dream . I heard of BANS or ebay affiliates which uses web pages with ebay products on it. YOU can use this world wide, so I would like to try that in the fulture. First thing first, learn the business. So I do need some suggestion. I am starting all over again and I got rid of the family distractions so far. Thank you adson

grussell,

Your support is much appreciated on my published tutorials. I'm constantly looking for feedback to more appropriately zero in on what people need. With regards to Internet marketing or even any type of marketing (whether it's online or offline or both), it's all about starting with 1 method first. I started blogging with 1 blog but the biggest key is to communicate daily with others. You can do this by tapping into the social networks for starters: Facebook, Linked-In, Plaxo. Facebook seems to be an easier place to connect to people. Then, you want to look for content you're real fired up about not only researching but sharing. This will help a great deal because you must be very passionate about what you do as you strive to help others. It takes time to develop a web presence. The more you learn (along expert lines), the more you'll appear. It's at this point of consistent 'hello' that people will start to follow you.

If you're not sure where to begin, let me know. I will be happy to steer you in concrete directions.

Hi Barbara......I'm into my third week at WA and I am still trying to find my way around doing lots of reading and making some posts. I've just finished reading your "about me" so now I'm letting you know about me. I went o your business blog and wasn't sure where to sign up for your newsletter. Was it the "free report'? I really enjoyed reading your "about me" and I am looking forward to getting to know you....and learning from you. Hope to hear from you and also become your buddy. Thanks.

Good to meet you. I do have several blogs but the one you'll most likely wish to subscribe to (Barbara's Wealthy Affiliate) is currently under construction. It's only a matter of adding additional free report. If you fill in your information on my business blog mainly dedicated to home-based business, I can pull your name over the Wealthy Affilliate list, once it's in better order. I look forward to visiting with you. Hang in there. You're facing a learning curve that's big but just take it one day-at-a-time and keep the work going. It will translate into something decent.

Adson, Thank you for tapping in and being there. I am just learning how to stand on my own and I'm just getting started in this business. I am short on time and low on cash. I am working on week one of the action plan, and I have been working through Adwords. I am not looking to get rich overnight, but can you can guide through some of this.

1) First things first. How do I change my name on my profile?
2) While I am in training on Google Adwords it will only recognize my old Google email address
3) Before coming to Wealth Affiliates I started learning through another internet business, but it was getting to
costly and time consuming. I did pay for two website through GODADDY along with email addresses;
AdWeber, TrafficGeyer, a PayPal Account., and membership to the other internet business.

My question is do I need any of that here? If not should I cancel them until I can afford it, if I need it?

I don't want to inundate you I want to thank you for whatever help you can provide.

Joilie..., Head to WA, click there. Then look for last box listed, "Edit Profile". Click there. You should see another edit button. Click. You should be able to change your name. On the other Q's. Simplify. Use free means first. Blogger is a good start...WordPress...social sites like Facebook will get you out there. Spend 15 minutes/day connecting to others. If you can spend 30 minutes, that will help. Google Adwords. I recommend this effort later on, once you know more about what you're doing. For now..., simple stuff...using free means. We need to get you connected to the Bum Marketer, Travis Sego. He's a super WA member and can be of huge help to you. AT a later point, you will need to spend more time developing yourself. If there are still outstanding Q's, let me know and I'll fill in more blanks. bkb2012
