If it matters, I would suggest to make sure that it feels more like a free consultation rather than a sales pitch. Everyone always seems too busy unless you’re there to help them or do something for them. Instead of asking for “Just 15 minutes of your time”, it could be more like, “Let’s talk… Read more How to Set a Sales Meeting
One of the first things I learned after YEARS of making money online was that everybody was into building email lists. I had been running a business online but never knew anything about IM. Then I went to WarriorForum and saw all this hype everywhere about how important it was to collect emails, that the… Read more Do you REALLY need an email list? (INTERNET MARKETING)
It’s really hard. Because there are so many things you have to do before you can sell to people. It’s because you have no credibility. If Michael Jordan asks you to buy a pair of shoes, you do it. But if Joe Schmoe asks you to buy shoes, you say BUT WHY?! If you keep… Read more How to Get People to BUY From You

1. Offer valuable information (note-worthy, shareworthy) links to other great posts, youtube videos 2. Offer your own content links to your articles/youtube viral images (just an image and a caption) If yours is worthy among the others, you will do very well.
It could be very little or very expensive. But the price shouldn’t be what matters. If you get what you need (not necessarily what you want) and it helps you make money, the price doesn’t matter. Everyone needs a different type of coaching. Some people need somebody to hold their hand and walk them through… Read more How much should good IM coaching cost?
Maybe not too easy. But certainly doable and success is quite predictable. There’s skills and then constant work and dedication.

Some people haven’t decided between the two as a source of income. Here are some comparisons you can make for ebooks vs videos: VIDEOS + cheaper faster to make + can seem more valuable and personal to prospective buyers + can be edited to make a highlight reel – require costly cameras, videos, lighting equipment… Read more Selling Ebooks vs Videos (the better info-product moneymaker?)
It’s amazing how many people think success happens entirely by accident. They might not be actively thinking this but they don’t realize they’re actually living this way. My success was all planned, premeditated, with precision, conviction. I knew what what I wanted to do and then I made it happen. This is what’s going to… Read more Success is NOT a Surprise
I was reading a great article earlier called “Why Following Your Passion is Bad Advice” The article was perfectly written and made a ton of sense. But still, I couldn’t help but feel something more deep inside. This was the comment I left: I’m one of those that believe it starts with passion. But I… Read more How Important is Passion in Business Success?
I’ve been an internet marketer for some time and pretty much torn between using Pop-up Dominator or not.

I’ve been recently involved in tackling international markets for one of my websites. And the task of creating subtitles came up. I went looking around for software and ultimately decided they were too much work. The software loads up your video, then has you typing the text and duration out. Like I said, it’s… Read more How to Make Subtitles for Your Videos
How much would you pay for the system? How much would you pay for someone to hold your hand and walk you through it for a month? How much would you pay to have a system that could generate $500/month of passive income? How about $5,000/month?

I used to do that with every website thinking I would somehow magically capitalize on site traffic but it never turned out that way. It turns out I missed one simple detail: ONLY BUILD ONE FORUM! That’s like the golden rule of starting a forum.

nSphere contacted me in the Fall last year offering some sort of revenue partnership. They offered to take over a subdomain on my website by building a spammy looking directory on “local.mydomain.com” where they would post regurgitated content from my original site along with ads. They promised to share a certain amount of revenue from… Read more nSphere.net is a Scam
Here goes my bad review of VPS.net (owned by UK2 group). I use to be a shared hosting customer of ANhosting.com for several years — which I still am. They offered good service and good support which was far better than Dreamhost. ANhosting was my savior when one of my websites got popular and I… Read more VPS.net Hosting Sucks! – Bad Review
So I went around looking for places to buy cPanel licenses last night. I found different rates and different options: BuycPanel.com – popular cPanel reseller. Nice site filled with many options and allows you to pay for a monthly license (instead of paying the yearly price). They will even install cPanel on your server for… Read more Where to buy cPanel licenses
This is a review of my research regarding DigitalAccessPass (DAP) and DLGuard. Both are 2 powerful gateways built to sell your digital e-products. Their differences are mainly in the amount of options they have in delivering the product, securing the product, and displaying the product. Ultimately, I chose to go with DAP and I’m very… Read more Digital Access Pass (DAP) vs DLGuard Review
It’s a great theme and I’m very happy with it. I’m using it on a very large site and enjoy it very much. FYI, I’m using Thesis Theme version 1.8.2. I compare some of the well-known pros and cons of ThesisTheme.

…it turns out most people aren’t successful…not because they’re not good enough, talented enough, social enough, smart enough, resourceful enough, didn’t have the right training, born in the right social class, etc. They just don’t want it bad enough. And for those who don’t want it that bad, they’ll never get it. They’ll never make… Read more How Bad Do You Want It?
Lately, there’s been a lot of divided opinions (more against it than for it) about Casey Fenton’s decision to raise money and turn Couchsurfing into a B-corp. It created legions of angry CS’ers and sparked heated debate among the themes of capitalism, altruistic communities, and [corrupted] corporations. How I feel about the anti-corporation community:… Read more Couchsurfing B-Corp Is a Good Thing

I’m beginning to see the end of Facebook. It was about 4 years ago when I predicted the end of MySpace. Facebook was not only a better social network, it was superior to MySpace in every way. Aside from that, it grew to become something that could no longer compare it to MySpace. If anything,… Read more The End of Facebook?
