... not because they are wrong (or maybe they are :-), but because they're too darn simple or easy or embarrassing to admit they are using these methods.

How to go from a Dead Website to Raging Buyers: Building Your Opt In Cash Cow

by Juan Pablo Cangas

Almost everyone, from the all-star "guru", to the small guy
promoting his humble website, says "The money is in the list".
And, really, having an opt-in list you can call your own
is crucial for succeeding online.

This one little "secret", can make all the difference for you,
between making a few sales here and there,
to consistently making money out of thin air, literally.

Here’s an outline of some of the benefits you get
from maintaining your own opt-in list.

- Ability to generate traffic (and sales!) on demand
- Leverage potential
- Advertising revenue

How to generate traffic and sales on demand:

Having an opt-in list, is like owning a “sales & traffic” button!
You’re literally a “send” button away from generating
traffic & sales anytime you want to, because if your list is
well-targeted, they *will* read and respond to your offers.

Of course, this doesn’t mean you can spam your list
with ads every time you want, as they will probably
unsubscribe, even get mad if you do. But if you keep
your communications useful to your readers,
you will see great responses!

Leveraging gold from your subscriber’s contact network:

I like to think about my list as my joint venture partners.
Think about it, it’s very realistic to assume that some
of your subscribers do have their own list and contacts.

If you can get your subscribers promoting your products
(even as second-tier affiliates), you’re leveraging
their resources to your benefit. That’s working smarter,
not harder.

Easily generating advertising revenue :

Do you think advertisers would be interested in
running an ad on your targeted, highly-responsive
opt-in list? You bet they do!

Running advertising inside your publications can be
a great source of extra income, with almost no work
involved from you!

Let’s say you charge $5 for publishing a top sponsor ad
in your bi-weekly newsletter. That makes you a
maximum of $10 a week, or $40 a month,
just for adding an ad to a message you were sending anyways
(I’m not even considering other type of ads here).

Not bad for covering your business expenses, say,
your web hosting and autoresponder account.

You can make some good money from running ads
on your publications, once your subscriber base reaches
a decent size. And as your list grows, you can increase
your prices, too! Just be sure not to turn your
mailings into a classified board instead of a good read,
or your subscribers might start opting-out.

There’s plenty of reasons for building an opt-in list.
It’s so important, that many experts recommend
you make list building your top priority when
doing online business. Start building or growing
your list today, so you can reap the rewards tomorrow!

Wayne Tully is a marketer who just found the best site
to get quality "ethical bribes" to build your opt-in list.

Find out how you can get your hands on a whole PILE of quality
internet marketing products you can sell or giveaway...
everything at a price you just can't resist!

Online Business and Affiliate Marketing

What's the best way to build your own online business quick?

When thinking of this question, it's best in thinking in terms of marketing other peoples products online rather than at first trying to come up with your own products straight away, although you will have to think about starting your own product or service soon as this will help your business growth, but for the time being stick to learning and growing ideas on how to profit from other peoples products for now.

There's alot of information out there for the online business beginner to handle, so just pick one or two top marketers and just go with what they teach as you'll only confuse yourself with lots of different versions of supposed truth about online internet marketing, and plus you'll save mony on learning products and services too.

One of the best foundations of building an online business is to partner or JV (Joint Venture) with some other online business entity, company or sole trader through which you can share mutual benefits of traffic generation and sales of each others products, this makes both sides very comfortable in achieving their goals online as both sides win on many levels.

Affiliate marketing relies on quality information being available for anyone to access online or through someones list or blog and this is constantly drip fed to potential visitors and new visitors alike, eventually turning these visitors into repeat visitors much like a real high street store, the more you give the more they come back!

While this is true on many levels you have to always keep track of the supply and demand statistics of your regular research, you have to constantly be ahead of your game and be aware of seasonal trends and whether they will affect your current business model, keyword resaerch is vital as you will always want to keep track of what people are searching for on the internet and what people are buying.

You can survey your customers to see what they would like to see on your site or any products they would potentially buy, this form of customer feedback is what the main companies and retailers do to obtain valuable consumer insight into what the public buyers want, this type of information is invaluable to the market research crowd who collect all this data on behalf of certain corporations.

A Viral Traffic Boost Could Be Just What Your Site Needs

There are many free traffic exchanges and free traffic methods you can use over the internet and of these many varying types of traffic generators, this is the best one that has boosted this blog and many other sites I have, although you have to create seperate accounts with different email addresses and you have to promote the links and banners first after signing up with your website information, but once you have a few other webmasters on your first level then the viral part of this free system takes over.

The Keys to Your Keyword Research

Since the internet is the information super highway of the 21st century then it stands to reason that road signs are needed to take internet users where they want to go. If you are doing business online, you want those signs to guide people straight to your website. Enter keyword.

If content is king (and it is) then keywords are the queen. Choose the right keywords, then step back and watch search engines bring you more web site traffic. On the flip side picking the wrong ones or at least words that are too general in nature can relegate your website to internet obscurity. That is why it is very important to get you keyword marketing off to a good start by researching compiling and analyzing your keyword list.

You can use any keyword tool available to do your research. The big enchilada is of course Overture. Just type in your word or phrase and then check out the results. Is there a potential target market available? Higher search results mean more competition. There is nothing wrong with that, it just means you will have to work a little bit harder. Compile all words and phrases that fit your niche into a list.

Next comes the analyzing stage. The goal here is to edit your list down to those keywords that will get you the highest number of visitors who would most likely be interested in your product or content. How do you do this? By evaluating 3 elements of the keywords you choose

a. How Popular is your Keyword? This is pretty easy to measure. Just go to Overture and find out how many people are searching using that specific word.

b. How specific is your keyword? Let's say you are building a website on Paris Hilton (I know but it's just an example). There are over 1.6 million searches using just her name. That would be a lot of competition. However the keyword phrase Hilton Paris scandal yields 2,144 search results. That means less competition, higher ranking in the search engines and a greater chance of people finding your website.

c. What's the incentive? This is where you want to do a little role play with your target audience. The goal is to find people who are motivated to take action now no matter if it's buying your product, reading your content or clicking on a link. There are various tools and software to measure consumer trends in relation to site traffic.

As you have probably figured by now all of this involves a lot of trial and error. There is more to keywords than just search results. You have got to know what words and phrases are triggering action. For this reason you need first and foremost to study your target market thoroughly.

To make your keyword marketing a success requires constant evaluation. The good part is once you put your system of research, compiling and evaluation into place, the process will flow more quickly and smoothly right toward your online success.

5 Ways To Promote Your Online Business For Free

As you know the cost of promoting your business is just outrageous. This is especially true if you are just starting out. You get into this business to make money and right off the bat you are being asked to spend hundreds of dollars to promote your site or business. And in doing so there really is no guarantee that you will get visitors to your site let alone customers that are ready to buy. Fortunately, I will be going over 5 ways you can promote your online business, and the best part is that all 5 ways are absolutely free, well almost they will cost you some time.

One of the first ways you want to promote your business is to write and submit a press release. There are many press release sites that you can submit to for free. What you want to do is write a good informative story about your business. It would also be a good Idea to include some information about you and how you came about starting your business. This is a great way to get some interest and exposure to your business.

Next would be using traffic exchanges. Traffic exchanges are good in that they give your business exposure to others trying to promote their own business. What you are basically doing in traffic exchanges is surfing for traffic, at the same time there are hundreds of others that are doing the same thing. The more you surf the more credit you get. As your credits grow so does the amount of times your page is shown. This is a good way to get traffic to your site and a great way to build your list.

Online forums are also another great way to promote your business. In forums you will find a wealth of information from members who have been in business for a while. The forum community is a great place to share ideas and get feedback on your own projects. As you grow in the forums you will find that you start giving advice to newbies who ask questions. This happens fairly quickly. One thing to remember about forums is that they are not a place to advertise your sites. You do promote by having your signature file. It is included at the end of every post. Your signature file links to your site, so the more active you are in the forum the more trust you build. This will cause people to click on your links.

Blogging is another excellent way to promote your site. All you need to do is set up a blog and submit to it every day. After each post or update make sure you ping the site so that it gets submitted to blog directories. Another great way to use blogging is to surf other blogs that have content relevant to your site. Read different posts and submit comments to the posts. At the end of your comments make sure that you include a link to your site or blog this way people who read your comments and like what you have to say they will probably visit you site.

Finally there is article writing. This is probably my favorite way of generating traffic. The more articles you write and submit to directories the more traffic and back links you will build for your site. Also article writing is a great way for you to learn about the subject you are writing about. If you want to write about a subject and do not know too much about it, all you have to do is a little research before you write the article. After writing a few articles on the same subject you start to distinguish yourself as an expert in that area. That is a good shot to your credibility.

As you can see these 5 ways to promote your business are pretty good but they do take some time to complete. As they say nothing really is free. But I can tell you from experience putting the time in to do these 5 things consistently will do wonders for your business. So what are you waiting for? Get Busy.

Quick Tip For Using Traffic Exchanges

One of the best tips I always try to stick to when using traffic exchanges is to only promote your opt in pages rather than your affiliate links to the affiliate websites, this creates more of a chance that someone will subscribe to your squeeze page than a normal affiliate link page.

You want to write a good headline for your opt in page and yes keep it short and bare in mind that when people use traffic exhcanges they are there to build up surfing credits so they may only have 20-30 seconds viewing time on your web page, so the trick is to make that 20-30 seconds count, by not over selling anything and just providing a few benefits of your free offer or report that your viewers can download.

Use bullet points to list the benefits, but remember not to give away too much at this stage as you can add further information in the email follow ups you send them, at the end of the opt in page, you could provide a strong call to action, like enter your name and email address for instant access to my free report! (or something along these lines!)

Keep up the promotions and to your success everyone!!

What DO You Need to Build a Successful Internet-based Home Business?

By Lynne Homewood

About the Author Lynne Homewood is changing the way business is done online with the unique vision of her latest Home-Biz venture.
Website URL

What DO you need to build a successful Internet-based Home Business?

I am asked that question almost every day. Obviously, MANY people would love to make some money with their computer, but they have no idea HOW! What's worse, they often try and just end up losing money due to
either their own lack of experience or the fact that there are just so many scams out there built to make 'The Company' money not YOU!

The most important part of an Internet-based business is your website. It is your salesman, your image builder, the first, and possibly ONLY, contact you will have with your potential customers and clients.

Therefore, you want a very professional-looking site and that means no misspelled words, no bad grammar, no clashing colors, and an easy-to-read layout. You also want to make sure you have a webpage that loads quickly (too slow and many visitors will leave before they even see it) and that usually means go easy on the graphics.

If you've been on the Internet/Home Business scene for any length of time at all, you've no doubt heard that "the money is in the list", you MUST have your OWN mailing list to succeed. In order to build your own list you need a lead-capture system.

The best lead-capture systems generally employ a relatively short webpage, offering something free, in return for a visitor's name and email address, while the visitor agrees to receive email from the webpage owner. If this system is tied into an autoresponder, all the better: statistics tell us that most people view an ad or are exposed to a product at least 7 times before they decide to buy. An autoresponder allows you to send a series of messages, providing that repeat exposure automatically.

A great advertising plan is also essential to a successful business, online or off. We are extremely fortunate that there are quite a number of cheap (and even free) Internet-based advertising systems and strategies that
actually work. The trick online, even more than in the 'real' world, is VOLUME. Great copy-writing is also crucial: an ad (especially a headline) that stands out can bring an incredible click-thru ratio. Pair that with riveting web-copy and you've got a winner!

Since most people start a Home Business in their spare time, and work a 'regular' job as well, automation is also key to a successful business. A home business that requires you to spend hours on the phone, selling, recruiting, training, conferencing, etc. can be difficult, even impossible, for the average person. Further, most people do not enjoy this type of work, and it can be a real drain on your time, as well as your emotions, dealing with the dreaded 'rejection factor'.

People who start an Internet-based business, or who want to "make money with their computer", expect to use their computer to do a lot
of the work for them, and rightly so. An Internet-based business, especially, should be as automated as possible. Automation is really the ONLY way a person can build a SUCCESSFUL business in a reasonably short amount of time.

Money. It's kind of what it all comes down to in the end, isn't it? Starting and building ANY real business costs money. And most people start a home business because they NEED money. The ultimate solution to this problem is a business that requires a very small amount of 'front' money
and monthly overhead that pretty much anyone can afford.

Combine this with immediate income to help you balance the budget that caused you to look for another income source in the first place. Oh, and a nice, steadily-growing residual income for the future would be nice too. Accomplishing this delicate balance generally requires multiple streams of

So, then, let's review what you need to build a successful Internet Business:

- a great, professional-looking, fast-loading, well-written
- a lead-capture system
- an autoresponder to tie into the lead-capture system
- something you can give away free (preferably something
very valuable that your customer can't get anywhere else)
- advertising sources and systems that WORK and that you
- great ad copy/emails/ecourse/newsletter,etc.
- automation system(s)
- multiple streams of income

That may sound like an awful lot, but you can find some help 'out there' capable of shortening the learning curve considerably. And, when you do, you'll LOVE it when the plan comes together!

How To Make Your Blog More Profitable

How To Monetize
Your Blog More Effectively

So you've done the hard've chosen
the niche market that you are going to target, you've created
the content that they'd be interested in, you've implemented
your onpage and offpage search engine optimization and finally
you've managed to establish your blog in it's market and are
being rewarded by a steady flow of traffic from the search
engines and other sources.

Now - Your BIG question is -

"How do you convert this steady flow of traffic into money"?

You will no doubt already be trying certain
methods, an AdSense ad here and an affiliate link there, for
example, but there's something new that I wanted to tell you

This "something new" will do three
things for your blog:

1. It will instantly make it more profitable.

2. It will give it more keyword rich content pages which will
give it more search engine rankings which will increase that "steady flow
of traffic" and make it even more profitable.

3. It will give it another dimension further distinguishing
it from its competitors whilst enhancing your visitors experience.

So what is this "something new"?

It's a clever piece of software called Build
A Niche Store
and what it does is enable you to instantly build an affiliate
store made up of eBay's products and matched to your target niche.

This means that if you have a Golf blog, with
Build A Niche Store you will be able to add all of eBay's
golf products to it, and if you have an Antiques blog then
you will be able to add all of eBay's antique
get the idea.

You simply install the script, choose your niche, press build
and you automatically have your own niche specific affiliate store which updates
automatically (Yes - NO data feeds!) and which:

1. Will generate money for you when one of
your blog visitors buys an item through it.

2. Will give your blog hundreds or thousands
(depending on your niche) content rich product pages which
will get indexed in the search engines targeting keywords
you would otherwise not be reaching.

3. Will add a shopping experience for your visitors.

It's truly a great piece of software and looks set to become
all the rage in the coming year.

You can check out the official Build A Niche Store website where
you'll find case studies and a live demo which is sure to get your creative
juices flowing at the link below.

This one gets my thumbs up!

The Use Of Product Reviews In Online Marketing

Most people doing Marketing today
know that they should be using product reviews
as part of their Marketing efforts.  However,
lately I've been hearing more people complain
that they can't do this because they are not writers
and don't know how to write "product reviews."

In all honesty, it takes even a good
writer about 1 hour for each new niche
product they research. Between finding
the niche, finding a product, seeing
if it has an affiliate program, researching
the product and then finally writing
the review - it can take an hour easily!

So assuming you value your time at
about $50/hour, that means that each
product review you write costs you
about $50!

And, you STILL may not have a good
product review. I mean do you really
know what elements should be included
in the review? How much information
should you really give?

You know, even "I" still don't know
how to write great product reviews
yet - they're very tricky because they
have to be short but convincing.

So, I have an entire professional
writing staff - their entire job is
to just sit there, find niches for
me and then write as many product
reviews for that niche as they can.

And...they write GREAT reviews!

Now, for a limited time, you can literally
"STEAL" the work my writers do for me!

Yes, you can basically grab 100 of the
product reviews I've had written for me
and you can use them however YOU
want and keep 100% of the profits!

You save about 99% on your cost!

Check it out today and see how you can
get quality reviews each month for LIFE
and you'll only pay $0.47 per product review!

I'll see you there,

How to Build a Huge Opt-In List as an Affiliate

How to Build a Huge Opt-In List as an Affiliate
Copyright © 2006 Anik Singal

One of the biggest mistakes I see affiliates making
everyday is that their building a short-term business where
they just make a small living one sale at a time. If they
stop running ads today, their business would shut down!

The strategy we’re going to discuss now will allow any
affiliate to build a long-term business. This strategy will
allow you to upsell your visitors for expensive services.
Even more importantly, by using this strategy you’ll soon
become recognized as an expert in your field and making
money will be all the easier!

So what is this strategy?

You guessed it, it’s building an opt-in list, a
newsletter or ezine.

By having an opt-in list you’re building a customer base
instead of just small sales! You can sell the same customer
over and over without having any more advertising costs.
You build a trust with your readers that allows them to be
loyal in doing business through you affiliate link!

So, as an affiliate, how do you build an opt-in list?

How to Build the List

The simplest way I have found is to start deferring all of
my traffic that I pay for to an opt-in page. After the
person opts-in, have them land on a thank you page where
you pre-sell them for the affiliate product.

So, you’re probably already building traffic to your site
now, instead of sending that traffic directly to your
affiliate link, send it to a page that has an opt-in.

How Should My Opt-In Page Look?

The next most popular question is how to make the opt-in
page look. Believe it or not, there actually IS a strategy
behind this. Your page MUST be small, short and to the
point. This means that you should NOT have a long sales
letter type page to get them to opt-in.

Your entire opt-in page should fit in one screen with NO
scroll down bar. Have a strong headline, 5-6 bulleted
benefits and then a nice big opt-in. You’ll be amazed at
how high the results can be.

Quick Ways To Generate Traffic

The point of this article is not to teach you how to drive
traffic to your website, but here are 5 really quick
techniques to use so you can test what you just learned.

1. Article Submissions - Submit articles around the web
regarding your niche and have your biography link go to a
opt-in page. You’ll be amazed at how well this technique
works in building a list.

2. Pay Per Click - The easiest way to immediately begin
getting traffic. Send all of your paid traffic directly to
the opt-in page, then have the person land on a page that
pre-sells the product they were looking for. Make sure to
test this, sometimes your conversions on the front-end can
fall, but they increase over the long-run.

3. Ezine Ads - I have found Ezine ads a great way to
quickly and cost effectively boost my list. Write an ad
promising a free membership or information and send
the traffic to an opt-in page.

4. Viral Marketing - This form of marketing takes some time
to kick in but can be extremely effective! Other people
will spread your message and your message will have links
to your opt-in page.

5. Linking strategy - This option is a bit more work, so
only use it once you have tested and know that you have a
winner. Start trading links with related websites and you
will see a great boost in traffic.


In conclusion, make sure you understand that you should be
building a long-term affiliate business and not just
something that makes you a few dollars on one sale. If you
ever stop advertising, you want to be in position to still
have a powerful business. Building a large opt-in list will
also position you as the expert in your niche.

Finally, remember to make sure that your opt-in page fits
on one computer screen and is small. Always test the page
by quickly driving some traffic.

What do People Want Online?

It’s not what you think it is.

by Jay Conrad Levinson

What people want online is a question guerrillas ask
themselves a lot. Whether it's for fun or work or something else, understanding
a consumer's motives once he or she logs on is a necessity. But the
experts don't seem to agree on what people want.

Some folks see the web as a vast, new field for advertising messages, assuming
that while people may want to do something else, if we can entice them
with flash, we can sort of trick them into paying attention to our
products and services.

Guess what. That’s not gonna happen.

Other folks seem to subscribe to the notion that people online are looking for
entertainment on the Internet, and therefore they construct messages aimed at persuading
while playing
. And, in other cases, the time-honored direct-response
model wins out: Grab people when you can, get 'em to take an action,
and then market, market, market.
The answer may be that the consumer has and
wants a lot more control than we give him/her credit for.

Today, webmeisters are in control. Sort of. In a perfect cyberworld,
people will be in control. Sort of.

Two recent studies shed light upon this dilemma. One was conducted
by Zatso. The other was conducted by the Pew Research Center. Zatso and
Pew. (Those guys didn’t spend much time reading
"how-to-name-your-company" books, I guess.) Still, both of their
studies illuminated the answer as to what people want to do online.

The answer, as most answers, is very utilitarian: People want to accomplish
something online. They're not aimless surfers hoping to discover a
cybertreasure. Instead, the average Net user turns out to be a goal-oriented
person interested in finding information and communicating with others
– in doing something he or she set out to do.

Look at the Zatso study. "A View of the 21st Century News Consumer"
looked at people's news reading habits on the web. It revealed that reading
and getting news
was the most popular online activity after email.
The guerrilla thinks, "That means email is number one. How might I
capitalize on that?"

One out of three respondents reported that they read news online every day, with
their interests expanding geographically — local news was of the most
interest, U.S. news the least.

Personalization was seen as a benefit, too. Seventy-five percent of
respondents said that they wanted news on demand and nearly two out of three
wanted personalized news. The subjects surveyed liked the idea that they,
not some media outlet, controlled the news they saw. They feel they're better
equipped to select what they want to see than a professional editor.
Again, control seems to be the issue. Again, guerrillas think of ways to market
by putting the prospect in control.

The Pew Research Center study revealed that regular net users were more
connected with their friends and family than those who didn't use the Internet
on a regular basis.

Almost two-thirds of the 3,500 respondents said they felt that email brought

that 91% of them used email on a regular basis. That’s 91%. It
took VCRs 25 years to achieve such market penetration.

What did people in this study seem to be doing online when they weren't doing
email? Half were going online regularly to purchase products and

about their hobbies or purchases they were planning to make.
Sixty-four percent of respondents visited travel sites, and 62 percent visited
weather-related sites. Over half did educational research, and 54 percent
were hunting for data about health and medicine.

A surprising 47 percent regularly visited government web sites, and 38 percent
researched job opportunities. Instant messaging was used by 45 percent of
these users, and a third of them played games online. Even with all the hype in
the media, only 12 percent said they traded stocks online.

What does this mean to e-marketers? It means that if you’re constructing
a site for goal-oriented consumers, you'd better make sure you can help
facilitate their seeking

people get the information

Straightforward data, information that invites comparison, and straight talk are

A client buddy of mine showed me his website which heralds his retail location

Five Things You Can Learn about Advertising from Dr. Frank B. Robinson

The Strange Story of the "Crackpot" Mail-Order Prophet
(or) Five Things You Can Learn about Advertising from Dr. Frank B. Robinson

by Joe Vitale

Are you having trouble selling your product or service? Are you feeling like the chaotic state
of the world prevents you from succeeding? Are you wondering how you can increase your
sales in the most cost effective ways? Are you feeling like your competition is breathing down your neck?

Many of my clients feel the same way. They want to succeed, to make a nice living in their
business, but they feel overwhelmed, uncertain, and even despondent. They feel they have
too much competition. They feel marketing doesn't work, or takes too much work. They feel
people don't have enough money today to spend on what they are selling.

And that's why I think it's time to reveal the strange story of the long forgotten "crackpot" mail-order prophet.

During the Great Depression of the 1930s the average person didn't have enough money to
feed themselves or their family, let alone enough extra cash to order books through the mail.
Yet during those lean years one man made a fortune selling books and courses entirely by
mail. His name was Frank B. Robinson. He founded "Psychiana," the world's eighth largest
religion and the world's largest mail-order religion.

You may never have heard of him or his movement before today. But during the 1930s and
40s, Robinson's name traveled around the world. Millions of people read his books, studied
his lessons, and practiced his methods. The press called his positive thinking, new thought
religion a "media business" because Robinson advertised so heavily.

In 1928 Robinson wrote an ad for his new philosophy that began with the headline, "I
TALKED WITH GOD." An advertising agency in Spokane, Washington said the ad would
never work. But Frank believed in his message and trusted his hunches. He borrowed
$2,500 from people he barely knew, spent most of it on printing his lessons, and invested $400 to
place his ad in "Psychology Magazine."

That ad pulled 5,300 responses. Robinson ran it in numerous magazines and it always pulled
a 3% to 21% response. Within a year he had a full-time job fulfilling requests for his books
and lessons, soon shipping a million pieces of mail a year out of his office in Moscow, Idaho.
The post office in that little town had to move into a bigger building to handle all the mail.

Robinson's ads appeared in 140 newspapers, 180 magazines, and on 60 radio stations, all at
the same time. His postal bill in 1938 amounted to $16,000 and his printing bill hit $40,000.
He received 60,000 pieces of mail a day, reached more than two million people, and sent his
message to 67 countries---all within one year of running his first ad.

"Advertising is educating the public to who you are, where you are, and what service you
have to offer," Robinson wrote. "The only man or organization who should not advertise is the
one who has nothing to offer."

What can we learn from Frank B. Robinson?

1. He believed in his product. When you don't believe in what you are trying to sell, it shows.
It'll show in your lack of commitment to your marketing, in poor advertising, in poor
service, or in other ways. As I mention in my book, The Seven Lost Secrets of Success, sincerity is one
of the "lost secrets" to success. Robinson had sincerity. While his movement made tons
of money, Robinson accepted only $9,000 a year as his salary. Whether you call him a
crackpot or a savior, he believed in his product. He knew he had something people wanted. In
fact, Robinson sold his religious lessons with a money-back guarantee.

2. He advertised relentlessly. If you don't tell people that you exist, they won't know it. The
reason you aren't aware of Robinson or his movement today is because he's dead. (He died
in 1948). No one is advertising his message. Without consistent and persistent advertising to
educate the public, the world won't know of your business.

3. He tracked his results. Robinson believed in the spiritual world, but he also knew he lived
on the earth plane where numbers matter. He tracked responses from his ads to know what
worked and what didn't. For example, astrology magazines brought him an 18% response to
his ads while national weekly papers brought 3%. Knowing that, Robinson could invest more
money in larger ads in the better pulling magazines. Find out where your business comes from and focus more advertising in that area.

4. He continued to create products. Robinson knew once people tasted his goods, they
would want more. He wrote 28 books during his short lifetime. These, along with his
correspondence courses, gave him a deep product line. Your current satisfied customers will always be your goldmine. Create more for them to

5. He remained optimistic. Despite the harsh reality of the Great Depression years, and
despite competition from religious institutions that had been around for centuries, Robinson
flourished. He didn't believe anyone or anything could stop him. When you have that strong of
an inner conviction, nothing CAN stop you. If you think you have competition with a similar
business in the same town, consider what it must have been like for Robinson to have such
empires as the Catholic Church, the US government, and famous ministers and politicians
trying to close him down!

Whatever you may think of Robinson or "Psychiana," you have to admit he knew how to advertise his business.

"After all, it's the results in human lives that count," he wrote in his 1941 book, The Strange
Autobiography of Frank B. Robinson. "Talk is cheap."

What are you going to do now to increase your business? Remember, talk is cheap!

"Discover how one guy made $291,756.42
and attracted 44,901 new opt-in subscribers...

... in the last month alone!"
Product Review:
"The Insider Secrets to Email Marketing -- Version 2006"
By Derek Gehl and The Internet Marketing Center
I've just finished devouring Derek Gehl's newly revised and updated "advanced guide" to email marketing, "The Insider Secrets to Marketing Your Business on the Internet - Version 2006," and I'm stunned by the number of profit-generating email secrets he's giving away!

I'm talking 390 pages containing 100s of his most successful test results he's spent the last 8 years perfecting, along with a breakdown of the logic behind every decision he made!

The truth is, I can't figure out exactly WHY Derek has made this information available...

... since it gives everyone -- including his competitors -- the chance to steal the secrets he's used to earn over $3.5 Million last year with email marketing!

I mean, the guy shows you EVERYTHING...

The 3 NEW criteria used by "spam filters" to deliver your email -- accreditation, reputation, and email authentication! (Warning! It's NOT about your email content any more!)

How to quickly build an email list of 1,000s of qualified buyers (even if your site gets NO traffic)

How to get "whitelisted" with Yahoo, AOL, and Hotmail and guarantee the delivery of every email you send

How he turned a paid subscription newsletter into a CASH COW of over $1.5 Million per year in just 3 months...
... and MUCH more!

Derek also teaches you when you should mail, how you should mail, what you should write, and when you should send it so that you are guaranteed the best possible results from each and every email...

His years of testing are going to completely eliminate all of YOUR guesswork!

The thing is, the email marketing industry HAS changed dramatically over the past few years. If you're not on top of the changes, 40% to 80% of your email may NEVER get delivered to your clients!

I still think that Derek's going to regret giving all this information away, so I would advise you to grab this book while you can! It really does tell you everything you need to do to grow your business successfully with email marketing.

Affiliate Management Solution For Serious Affiliate Marketers

This is your chance to test your own affiliate program RISK FREE for 90 days -- and make $1,000's in extra sales with FREE advertising!

Review: AssocTRAC 4.0 -- Affiliate Management Solution

Okay, the thing that stops people from starting their own affiliate programs is the cost. I know that. I mean, getting started can cost you literally thousands of dollars. And that's simply not realistic for many online business owners.

For example: To get started with one of the biggest affiliate management programs out there (I'm not naming names!) will cost you a MINIMUM of $11,500 in your first year alone! And it could be a LOT more!

And to make matters worse, many of these companies actually penalize you for being successful. In other words, the more money YOU make, the more they will demand that you pay them!

That's why I was so excited when I discovered AssocTRAC 4.0. It's a complete affiliate management solution that gives you absolutely everything you need to start and run your own affiliate program AND it lets you do it without all the traps that so many of the other affiliate management programs try to lure you into.

(For example, AssocTRAC does NOT take a percentage of every sale you make, and it doesn't force you to send traffic that is rightfully yours to some other site like so many other programs do.)

And here's the kicker: For a limited time, you can even try it out risk free for 90 days. That way, you can prove to yourself how easy it is to enlist an army of affiliates who will work day and night for you promoting your products, and if it isn't exactly what you're looking for, you don't pay a dime!

I give AssocTRAC 4.0 a solid 10 out of 10 rating. If you're at all considering your own affiliate program (and even if you haven't really thought about it before now) you owe it to your business to check this out!
