Only the chosen few make money with the Internet…Give me a break!

Only people who are selling information about how to be an Internet Marketer are making money online!

I can’t tell you the number of times I have heard this statement from someone who downloads a free report, buys an information product or enrolls in some type of a mentoring course. They get the information, try a few little things, get sidetracked or bored and then move on to something else claiming the information can’t work for them. It can only work for those who sell Internet Marketing information.

Insanity STOP the insanity. This is not true.

Truth be told, there are lots of people who try their hand at selling “how to make money on the  Internet” products and services who have never made more than a few dollars at it before they give up and claim anyone who does make money this way is simply lucky.

Give me a break! The reason they didn’t make money is they expected results with little effort in an unreasonable amount of time.

Bet you didn’t know this about Twitter

I pride myself in being a quick study when it comes to the latest and greatest ways to network and market online. That’s why I got involved with Twitter.

Have I gotten benefit from Twitter? You bet. Recently, I hosted a teleseminar and was amazed at how many people tweeted about the call before it happened and after it was over.

Yet, I had no idea how many there actually were until I read a tip in a new report called, 5 Steps To Twitter Success by Rob Richards and Robin Araoz. I learned a valuable tip on how to track who is tweeting about you. There were dozens of tweets I would not have known about without the information I picked up from the report.

Not only was I able to see what was being said, I was in a position to reply to the tweets. This allows for very effective networking.

The small price of the report would have been worth it for just that one tip. But there was much more than that.

If you are not on Twitter yet, this report is a must read. If you are on Twitter and you think you know all there is to know, this report is a must read.

Heck, just read it. You will be glad you did. And, it’s fully guaranteed. Here’s what Rob and Robin promise….if for any reason at all, you feel you didn't learn anything new or that it didn't help you, they'll refund every cent of your purchase – no questions asked. NOTHING TO LOSE… ALL TO GAIN!

Tweet Later is nothing to do later

If you are using Twitter you know how powerful it can be as a marketing tool. When I hosted my Amazon preview teleseminar earlier this week, I couldn't believe how many Tweets I received with folks telling others about the event.

Most were affilaites who used Twiitter very effectively to send the word out. Affiliate marketers are becoming more aware of how truly powerful Twitter is in their overall marketing.

If you are not yet using Twitter, I would highly recommend you do. One client just emailed me to say Twitter is the best. She promoted a teleseminar and got quite a good response for registrations from Twitter.

Something that is little known is Tweet Later. You can actually post your tweets to be sent out at whatever time and date you want. I had heard about it from Willie Crawford, Internet marketer master and Denise Wakeman of the Blog Squad, but honestly, never gave it much thought. You know, just a bit too busy to check it out.

That is until a few days ago. Decided to check it out and it is Fantastic!

I can take 5 – 10 minutes to post several tweets that will post throughout the day and move on to another part of my marketing.

Go to to register for Tweet Later. You must have a Twitter account to do this.

Would love to hear from others who have used Tweet Later.

Recession proof your business with teleseminars

Why is it that some people are thriving during these uncertain economic times, while others are struggling? Chances are those that are doing well have diversified their revenue streams; especially on the Internet.

It’s amazing how many ways there are to legitimately make money on the Internet. You can sell eBooks, eReports, coaching service, teleseminars and more.

One of my favorite (and most profitable) are teleseminars.  Teleseminars are basically training sessions that are delivered over the telephone or through a webcast. As technology has improved, teleseminars have become one of the most preferred ways to conduct business training or promoting products and services.  

There are many benefits of teleseminars but the most important one is that participants do not have to commute. You can host or take part in teleseminars from virtually anywhere — home, office or even halfway across the world. And you can generate great revenues.

Is Success A Guarantee For You?

Many people live in the illusion of “someday.” You may think that you will start your own business, “someday”. But when someday actually comes, you find that you end up working more for less money, and you end up wanting something more – but you don't know how to get it.  You didn't accomplish what you set out to do.

The “someday” illusion shows up in many ways. You believe, for example, that if you get the promotion things will be better – but then you find out that it's actually more difficult than you thought it would be to manage others.

My friend Marlene Chism reinvented her life ten years ago when she left a 20 year job in manufacturing to pursue her dream. Many of you know the story of going from line worker to professional.

Factory work is mundane. You always work by the same people and you are always told what to do. You rotate every 30 minutes and you don't have to think too much once you've been trained. Marlene kept thinking about the transition she wanted to make and and she began to realize that, given the circumstances, her expectations may have been a bit unrealistic.

She thought, “If you can believe it, you can achieve it.”

But those first few years, she was scared. Her expectations were too high. There were many real skills that she still needed to learn. As a result, she was miserable during those first few years because she wasn't reaching her goals as quickly as she had imagined.

But now, Marlene has obtained all that she dreamed of, and she wants to share her story of HOPE. Her new book, Success is a Given, gives a personal account of how she learned to read the signs in her own life story to create the success she is now living in today!

* Do you believe Success IS A GIVEN for YOU?
* Is Success something you desire but have never fully achieved?
* Are you content with the success of your family, relationships, and your business?

Although some of you can answer YES to one or all of those questions, there are many of you who KNOW there is MORE!  There is More to be gained, to achieve, and to live for!

If you have found yourself struggling with an unwanted circumstance such as a death, divorce or loss of career, my friend Marlene Chism would like to share with you today her own story of personal re-invention!

Marlene has found that much of the time unhappiness is due to compulsively thinking about success, judging your current level of success, and obsessing over achieving your next big success.  Using a mix of practical and spiritual principles throughout her book, Marlene encourages her readers to learn from life lessons, listen to their emotional signals and to know that success is a given!

Success is a Given” offers inspiration to anyone traveling the path of re-invention or life change, or anyone striving for the next level of success!

I recommend Success is a Given as a MUST Have as you begin a New Year. Marlene has also partnered with many generous inspirational experts who have contributed over $10,000 of FREE bonus' to help inspire each person who purchases a copy of Marlene's Book.

Marlene is SO excited to get her message out and see people start living the life of their dreams that she is also offering a FR.EE Teleseminar as one of the bonus gifts.  People can can sign up for a Q & A Teleseminar and submit their questions ahead of time for a chance to connect personally with Marlene. So, you not only get amazing inspiration from Success is a Given, but you can get free coaching on how to implement the powerful messages in Marlene's Book as well!

Willie Crawford is at it again


A few weeks ago I finished a six week course with Willie Crawford. I didn't hesitate for a minute to invest in his course. The reason being is I have bought lots of products from Willie and each one has been worth far more than what I paid.


The course I took was all about how to become very, very successful as an affiliate and with affiliate products and services.

The cost was just a little bit shy of a thousand dollars and worth every penny.

I'm well aware of the fact that not everyone is ready to invest that kind of money.

That's why I jumped at the chance to promote a fantastic audio product Willie has on becoming a super affiliate. I purchased it about an hour ago and have been listening to it. I have to say it is well worth the $17 I invested.

The best part of all…. you can become an affiliate and make back many times the amount the report will cost you. So you really ha ve nothing to lose and lots to gain.

If you want to learn from one of the best about what being an affiliate is really about then be sure to get your copy right away.

Teleseminars – One of the Best Ways to Build Your Business and Your Revenues

Holding live workshops and seminars are a good way to build a business. However due to current economic trends, the traditional methods of holding and conducting workshops make it very difficult to execute and get participation. In addition, the costs involved in getting a venue, audio visual aids and providing refreshments for the participants make it quite expensive and there are many factors that could prevent the event from being successful and profitable.

This explains why businesses are gradually moving towards teleseminars as a way of holding workshops and training sessions. All the attendees have to do is dial in to the conference line or click onto a website URL and listen and view the presentation.

The cost of holding a teleseminar is fairly reasonable. I have actually generated close to $20,000 on several occasions with an investment of between $50 – $100.

Survey reveals 85.5% of authors don’t believe they are using the Internet effectively

In a recent survey conducted by Kathleen Gage, The Street Smarts Marketer™, authors revealed they do not feel they are using the Internet effectively to market and sell their books. A staggering 85.5% responded no when asked, “Do you feel you use the Internet to market your books effectively?”


Traditionally, authors have focused on writing and often miss the essential element of marketing, especially on the Internet. Many may use the Internet, but have no idea how to optimize their presence.


With the number of new books being published each year utilizing proven marketing strategies is a must.


To address this issue, Kathleen Gage is offering a FR*EE teleclass, How To Turn Books into™ Bestsellers while Increasing Your Visibility, Revenue and Credibility. The one hour training takes place on Tuesday, December 9, 2008 at 6 p.m. Eastern.
