If you are just getting into Twitter, which is still growing at an incredible rate every day, Total Twitter Domination will take you step-by-step by the hand from the very beginning of setting up your account, all the way through learning how to automate content, establish authority within your niche and making the very most of your money making opportunities on Twitter.
One of my favorite things Michael talks about is Tweeting in your sleep. This isn’t like sleep talking though, it’s showing you how to take the heavy lifting off and establish yourself as an authority in your niche at the same time.
There are over two hours of very clear instruction, along with the bonuses he provides, that are very nice. One of the bonuses is easily worth what he’s charging for the whole course to me!
Bottom line, I really enjoyed the slightly odd sense of humor along with the detailed instructional style.
I just found something that might very well change the way Internet Marketers buy information products forever…
I know that seems like a huge statement, but imagine this: You spend maybe Five to Twenty Dollars on each special offer you see on the Warrior Forum. You buy an occasional WordPress plug-in. Every now and then you see a ClickBank offer that’s just too good to pass up. The total is far more than you are probably willing to admit, until you tally your receipts at the end of the year.
I know I spend WAY over $100 a month on software, WSO’s, Plug-ins, and such. It’s probably closer to $200 a month.
Created by Brad Gosse and Justin Popovic, Dpassport launched around ten days ago and they already have over 100, yes that’s one-zero-zero, products that have a total ACTUAL selling price of over $2600. For only $47 a month you can sign up, download a few, or download EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT they offer. You can quit at any time, or continue and receive every new product that is added, month after month, after month..
They’re not offering junk either! The contributors list reads like a veritable “Who’s Who” of content creation. Willie Crawford, Frank Ayers, Mike Cowles, Michael D. Forbes, and many other world-class content creators products are in the members area.
I was told they are adding over ten new products every day at this point and have a bunch in the pipeline to be released later.
If you don’t see that this is the most ground shaking deal you could get your hands on if you are serious about growing your business, than I apologize, I just haven’t made it clear enough how massive this opportunity is for you.
Go ahead and check it out for yourself, and remember, when you hit the Dpassport homepage, you will get EVERYTHING you see PLUS all the products on the inside for one price of $47. It’s crazy.
I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz that free is the future of marketing.
I also want you to know I made their ad below so obnoxiously huge on purpose. I feel like this is absolutely, hands down, the best offer I could ever show you. You have to look at it. It might not be for you, but you HAVE to go over and take a look for yourself. It’s that big of a deal, if I could make you, I would. Ok, Go…
To add to the AdSense weirdness… Now AdSense ads seem to be be on the “trailing edge” of what the person is browsing.
In other words, if someone is on a weight loss site and receives targeted advertising there, when they jump to an auto parts site, they will still see many, if not mostly, weight loss ads.
This is a totally backwards step in my mind. When I start a new search direction, I have mentally changed gears and stopped considering what I was previously looking for. This could be especially problematic for webmasters that have built their site around high paying AdSense words such as insurance. Imagine the horror when those juicy insurance clicks start turning into random .05 clicks off of your pages.
Is it time to reconsider AdSense as a viable monitization vehicle, or is this just something temporary while Google works out how to improve the user experience?
I personally find it bizarre to see AdSense ads that are totally unrelated to the site I am on, quite frankly it annoys me greatly. Targeting should be relevant to the site you are on, not what you WERE on?
Anyone else agree?
If you are a good writer (or even just a half decent one), you can earn money by writing articles for people with websites.
Many website owners know that they need to keep their websites current and up to date, but don’t have the time to constantly create new content for them. Because of that, they hire people who can write on their behalf.
In order for you to become a content writer, here are some steps you can take:
- Post a profile on freelancing sites such as Elance.com, Guru.com, and Odesk.com. Describe your interests and your levels of expertise.
Look for writing jobs on the same freelancing sites and apply for them.
- Google “writer job openings”.
- Ask the owners of websites that you already like if they are looking for writers.
How much can I make out of writing?
- Content writing jobs pay anywhere from $1 to $100+ based on the length of the article and your expertise. If you’re already an expert on the topic you’re writing about, you can often charge a premium.
- Even if you are new to writing, you can make upwards of $.50 for each 100 words on an article.
I came across a post this afternoon on another blog that I’d like to share with you. I don’t normally re-post from other blogs, but I thought these were kind of nice. They are WordPress Plug-ins that you won’t find through the built in WP “Search Plug-Ins” feature.
Big thanks to Dusty that posted this on Pingable.org
I’ve used a couple of the plug-ins he mentioned and have found them to be great assets.Search and Replace is a huge time saver if you have a lot of links or affiliate codes you need to update. White Label Branding is one I would really like to check out when I have time. The link is broken at Pingable, but you can find White Label Branding for WordPress Here.
Please let me know if you try any of these out and how you applied them. Enjoy!
If you haven’t heard the buzz about Google Wallet – here’s a quick breakdown on what it is, quoted from Google itself (read more here):
What is Google Wallet?
• “Google Wallet is a mobile app that will make your phone your wallet. It stores virtual versions of your existing plastic cards on your phone, along with your coupons, and eventually, loyalty and gift cards. Our intention is that Google Wallet will be an open mobile wallet holding all the cards and coupons you keep in your leather wallet today.”
Google Wallet – The Way To Pay Of The Future?
Despite all the claims of security, ease of use, etc… there is something about Goggle Wallet that just makes me feel weird about the whole thing. I mean, isn’t it strange that if your phone is lost or stolen you will have to go cancel your credit cards? Besides, who else thinks that Google has their fingers in way to many areas of our lives already?
Google Wallet definitely sounds convenient. I kind of wouldn’t mind it if I could quit carrying a wallet around, I’m so tired of bulging pockets that I’m almost ready to start wearing a fanny pack. Ummm, joke alert, I will never willingly wear a fanny pack. Seriously though, wallet in back, keys in one front pockets, big honking phone in another… It’s unsightly, and awkward, right?
I suppose the tech even exists that we could get rid of keys also and just carry our phone to act as a wallet, remote starter and somehow turn our car on and open our houses.
I like change, and for the most part, I like the trend toward one device doing everything, but the concept of one entity having access to our entire life just bugs the snot out of me.
Digital security will never be foolproof… lose your phone and someone now has potential access to your entire life? Uh-uh, not for me.
Will all of us take the safeguards necessary to protect our information like we should. No way, most of us are to lazy or uninformed, myself included.
What if Google Wallet changes significantly and begins to use our data in ways we never intended? Once the commitments are made to these new technologies, the price of going back gets pretty steep, and people will often sacrifice what they know is best for convenience sake.
What happens when Google starts influencing laws and regulation more than it already does? Where does this all end? I don’t think anyone knows how far all this integration can really go, and what the negative consequences of it really could be.
I think I’ll skip Google Wallet for now, stick to cash, and take my chances with pickpockets. What about you? I’d love to hear your comments on this subject.
Don’t worry, there’s no big shame in that. We all have dreams and ambitions that, for the most part, go unrealized. Seriously, we all have things we want to do, a bucket list I guess you could say. Here’s one of my personal “goals”.
I want to climb Mt. Denali in Alaska.
Will I ever do it? I doubt it.
Because I’m not doing anything about it, that’s why!
I humbly admit that I’m not in training (I’m a solid twenty pounds overweight), I haven’t purchased any gear at all, and most days I don’t even give it one thought. Really, this is the first time in several years that it’s even crossed my mind, but I’m still an aspiring mountain climber, right? Aspiring is the key word.
The difference between those who make money online and those who don’t boils down to one thing only. It’s not brains, it’s not computer knowledge, it’s not “luck”- it’s nothing but this simple fact:
Those who make money online take action.
They might stumble and sputter, they might take a long time, they might never make more than a few dollars, but with enough action they will make something eventually. Funny thing is, the more action they take the more money they make.
Since we’re picking on me, check this out:
I started selling on Ebay eleven years ago. I didn’t know it was supposed to be difficult to make money there. I didn’t know the competition was too tough. All I did was sit down, sign up and list something for auction, and I made just under twenty dollars on my first transaction. Not bad, it was a start, but…
I have since had numerous transactions with the profits measured in the hundreds of dollars and several have broken the thousand dollar barrier. My best net profit to date was $1472 for a set of microphones (that I wish I would have kept!) – I will always remember that transaction because it took me under an hour of total work.
I know someone that has told me probably thirty times over those same eleven years that she wants to sell things on Ebay. My answer has always been the same –
Go sign up for Ebay and list something, anything, sell a wooden spoon, who cares.
She still hasn’t done it.
Ebay isn’t really a part of my life these days. I will occasionally list something if I find a good deal that I know will make money, but I don’t care much for going to the Post Office anymore. I’ve moved on to take action in other areas. I’ve got bigger fish to fry, as they say.
Those that make a lot of money online take a lot of action, money-making action.
It should be no mystery that making money takes work. If there really was a push-button, cash-dispensing way of making money, it would be so quickly overused that it would no longer work, and that’s reality.
As Nike so famously said, “Just Do It”. Pick a method that interests you and work at it till you earn a dollar. If you like it, keep on earning your dollars. In the meantime you will gain other knowledge that can help you see other ways to make money that may pay better.
What will you do RIGHT NOW? I’ve put together a report that will show you 87 ways to earn $100 or more per day online, if you will just take action. All you have to do to get it is Tweet about it once.
Are you going to start now, or are you still going to be saying you “want to start to make money online” eleven years from now?
If you’ve run a blog or website for any time at all then you’ve probably gone to your site at some point just to find out it’s down, gone, kaput! This means NOBODY can access it, and if no one can access your site, you can’t make any money from it, right? Like most of us do, you probably called your web hosting company (you did get one with a technical support phone number, like Hostmonster.com, didn’t you?) and they started working on the problem.
Here’s the problem. How do you know how long your site was AWOL? How many visitors did you loose? How many sales were lost forever? The questions are endless – and aggravating!
Even if your site is online it may be running so slow that people won’t stay on your site. How would you know this? For the most part, you wouldn’t, but you would see a big drop in traffic. You might think that people are losing interest in your site when really it’s just that your web site is too slow.
Most website owners have the same frustration from time to time, and most don’t even know what’s going on. You can change all that! There are services available that will send you an email (or text message to your cell phone) the moment your web site goes down. They will also measure how fast your site is throughout the day and give you nice graphical reports of how quickly your site is performing hour-by-hour and day-by-day.
I just recently found a service called InternetUptimeMonitor.com. They will monitor your “uptime” and also the speed of your site and I have to say I’m fairly impressed with the service. It gives me a lot of piece of mind knowing that throughout the day if my site goes down I’ll get an email.
If I have a really slow traffic day, guess where I check first to find out why? Yep, InternetUptimeMonitor.com. It might just be that my site was slow, so visitors weren’t sticking around. With an uptime monitor, this can be verified at a glance.
InternetUptimeMonitor.com offers two main services, free and paid (for businesses). The differences between the two types of account are how often they check your site, whether they watch it from around the world or just in the states, and if you want cell-phone text messages alerts or just email alerts.
If you have a site online that’s making any money at all, I’d recommend their gold membership because it costs money to have your site down, no question about it. If you have a blog just for fun or aren’t making money yet, you can use the free membership.
Use this link below you’ll get 65% off their premium package when you’re ready to order. This is a special link I’ve been given for readers of my site and it’s not available to the general public:
Everyone, and I do mean everyone, should monitor his or her web site because you never know the next time your site will go down.

A great way to make money online, if you have a knack for writing and conversation, is posting on forums.
A lot of webmasters hire people to post on their forums so that their forums will appear busy. It’s a catch-22 when starting a forum, if there are few users then people won’t stay around long. It takes people to attract people, and sometimes paid posters are the answer.
When you posting in forums, all you would have to do is initiate new threads, respond to existing ones and keep conversations going. You can do this by posting interesting thoughts, thought-provoking conversation, teaching people things or just having fun and expressing your personality. It takes interesting material to bring someone into a forum, but people often stay because of the sense of community that develops over time. I know one site were there are many, many members of 10 years or longer, some with twenty thousand or more posts!
A great perk of forum posting for money is that you get to learn new things. Also, if you post in forums that you already have interest in, you basically get paid to have a good time.
Here are some steps you can take to become a forum poster:
Ø Apply for forum posting jobs on those sites
Ø Respond back to the buyer on time if you are called for an interview
Ø Agree on the pay per post and the deadline
Ø Get the job done within the accepted deadline
How much money can I make from forum posting?
For each forum post you make, the general prices range anywhere from $0.10 to $0.50 per post. If you have time to devote to this during the day and are able to make between 200 to 1000 posts (depending on how much your job is worth), then you can earn $100 a day. What you make will depend on how valuable your posts are and what the webmaster is willing to pay.
Another way to supplement your posting income is to rent your forum signature to a business or marketer. There are people that are willing to pay you $10 or more a month just to put a link in your signature. Obviously, the more you post, the more you will be worth for this.
If you would like to see more ways to make $100 a day working online, leave a comment and tell me. I’ll share some more ways if I see some interest.
