Sales Training Tip: Choose What You Allow Into Your Mind Carefully

A front page headline on USA TODAY read:

90% of the ocean’s edible species may be gone by 2048, study finds
Having Hurricane Irene and the worry over the coming of the 2nd recession isn’t enough. They have to devote half their front page to scaring us about the potential scarcity of Mrs. Paul’s fish sticks thirty- seven years from now.

Since I will most likely be dead none of this really matters to me. I find the reading of the daily paper taking less and less time – no more than the drinking of one cup of coffee. The reason – most of what is in there is of no interest to me and has no bearing on the achievement of my goals. Some may say this selfish and I would plead guilty but successfully guilty.

These headlines and stories are nothing new. My first recollection of this type stuff was The Population Bomb, a best-selling book, written by Paul R. Ehrlich and his wife, Anne Ehrlich, in 1968. It warned of the mass starvation of humans in the 1970s and 1980s. Didn’t happen. And then we had Y2K and the whole idea that all there would be a technological meltdown. Didn’t happen.

Scientists, psychics, cult leaders, politicians and ignorant, irresponsible journalists have frequently predicted the end of life as we know it – starvation and famine, flood, asteroid attack, the earth veering from its axis, killer bees, or – the latest – mad cow disease, etc. – and they have all been wrong.

God knows how many times one religious group or another has declared that the end of the world was near. So far nothing, nada has happened. Now we have the fruitcakes who are saying that the ancient Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world in 2012 – that is if the sunspots don’t get us first. Geez, you would think the public would wise up to this journalistic hype and realize that that all this does is sell newspapers and books and get government money for wacky research.

Eventually something, maybe an asteroid will get us and those left will say, “see I told you so”.

I council my sales training clients to be wise and not pay attention to any of this hype and clog their brain with this useless dribble. If you are really, really smart, you will be ruthless about NOT paying attention to anything that doesn’t advance you toward your goals, enhance your important skills, or inspire and motivate you to be your best self and achieve your greatest ambitions.


Hobbies don’t count and you get a pass because everyone needs escape from the nose to the grindstone relentless toil that it takes to become rich and achieve total personal autonomy to do what you want, when you want, with whom you want.

Anything that does not achieve this goal has to be filtered out. Blocked. Ignored. Just because USA TODAY feels compelled to fill its front page with silly, decidedly unscientific drivel, with scary stuff about the future-without-fish, does NOT mean you must swallow it.

Wishing you all the success you have the guts to grab!

Does Confusion Stop Progress?

empower network

 Thanks to my friends Tom and Pam Wolf for Today’s Tip.

There’s an old story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.

One day there was an important job to be done, and Everybody was sure Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job.

Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

Of coarse it could happen to anyone...just don’t let it be you!

Live with passion and purpose,

Tom and Pam Wolf

2012 Marketing Rolodex

Posted by Kim Roach

My personal Rolodex contains every tool, resource, and system that I use in my business. These are the golden nuggets that I have discovered over the past 7 years. Inside this report, you’ll get exclusive access to my favorite ghostwriters, copywriters, graphic designers, traffic assistants, programmers, and more…

 NameCheap.com – Cheap domain registration with an excellent control panel
for managing all of your domains.

BlueHost.com – Bluehost.com is the finest web hosting company I have come across. And I’ve tried quite a few of them. I’ve found Bluehost to be the very best in their class. They provide incredible support, unlimited domain names, and an excellent service for an affordable price.

However, I’ve just recently had to change web hosts because our site was simply getting too much traffic. We went with a Virtual Private Server at LiquidWeb.com which I’m really happy with so far. Some other really good options include RackSpace.com and SoftLayer.com.

Aweber.com – Hands-down One of the best services online for managing your email newsletter.

GoToWebinarWebinars are one of the most powerful tools for marketing and engaging with your community.

Amazon S3 – The Amazon Simple Storage Service. I use this service to store and publish almost all of my videos. They have extremely reliable internet storage, which is great for hosting large files like videos and podcasts. Using Amazon S3 you’ll never have to worry about running into bandwith problems. This can be extremely helpful – especially when you’re running a product launch.

EZS3 – Ok, so now you have your files uploaded to Amazon S3 but how do you publish those files and create video players that you can post to your website? That’s where EZS3 comes in. EZS3 takes the technical side out of it – allowing you to quickly and easily upload your files, create video players, mp3 players, and then upload your media onto your website. Plus, they also have a complete stats program to show you exactly how many people viewed your video, listened to your podcast, or read your pdf. Pretty cool! And a must-have for anyone like me who really doesn’t like to mess with the tech stuff.

UptimeRobot.com – A Free service that notifies you if your sites ever go down.

FileZilla – Free FTP software (I use this on a weekly basis to upload new files and pages to my website.)

Zamzar.com – A Free online conversion tool that allows you to convert nearly unlimited types of media file formats, including documents, images, audio, videos, etc… Convert your files to different formats quickly and easily.

 If you’re not tracking your visitors, then you’re flying blind. If you want to build a massively successful business, then you need to continually improve your conversion rates. That means testing your subject lines, open rates, squeeze pages, sales letters, calls to action, and everything in between. Anytime you aren’t testing is an opportunity you’re wasting.

Google Analytics – Get a much deeper insight into your website visitors. Find out exactly where your traffic is coming from, where they’re clicking, and how long they’re staying on your site.

Adtrackz Gold – This is one of my all-time favorite tools. And one of the most important. Adtrackz Gold allows you to create tracking links to see exactly which
traffic sources are sending you the most visitors, subscribers, and sales. It provides an additional layer of very important data that’s not easily tracked in Google Analytics. This one is a must-have if you want to scale your business to six-figures and beyond.

Google Website OptimizerBest free tool online for creating A/B split tests. Like everything online it does have a learning curve. But this is definitely one of my favorite tools for split-testing sales letters, squeeze pages, headlines, and more.

Visual Website Optimizer Visual Website Optimizer is an easy to use A/B testing tool featuring point-and-click test designer and WYSIWYG editor for creating variations. In addition to being dead-simple split testing software for marketers, it also dramatically shortens time to go live with your A/B tests because of the innovative “tag-less” integration (not to mention it reduces your dependency on IT and web development department for uploading code snippets again and again)

OptimizelySimple, fast, and powerful. Optimizely is a dramatically easier way for you to improve your website through A/B testing. Create an experiment in minutes with our easy-to-use visual interface with absolutely no coding or engineering required.

Unbounce.comDesign and split-test your landing pages using a visual point and click WYSIWYG editor. Unbounce is unique in that it comes with built-in templates that allow you to create, publish and optimize your landing pages without all the technical gumbo. But keep in mind that Unbounce is designed to A/B test *new* landing pages – not your existing website.

ClickTale.com – Creates a visual demonstration of how people move through your website. Watch movies of visitors browsing your website. Find out exactly how people are interacting with your website. See every mouse movement and every click.

http://www.abtests.com/Community website for sharing A/B testing results and case studies.  Lots of golden nuggets here 🙂

http://www.whichtestwon.comWant to test your marketing skills? Vote for which version you think won… and then see real-life test results.  A treasure trove of a/b split test results to help you format your own website, sales page, or squeeze page for optimal results.

 99designs.com – 99Designs has created a revolutionary design process where you actually have multiple designers competing to win your bid. So you can have hundreds of different designers creating multiple designs for you and you only have to pay the one you like best. This is one of the main services I use for graphic design. Also a great place to get new design ideas.

Hatchwise.com – Similar to 99designs.com but more affordable. You rate, review and provide feedback (constructive criticism) on all the designs you receive and then you pick the one you love the most, pay the designer the fee and download your design!

MiniSiteGraphics.com – Top-notch designer used by Jimmy D. Brown, Russell Brunson, Josh Spaulding, and Ewen Chia.

KillerCovers.comAmazing designs for your eBooks, DVDs, CDs, etc.

DesignGuruRyan.com – Top online graphic designer. Used by Mike Filsaime, Ryan Deiss, Chris McNeeny, Ewen Chia, and many others.

Pixelofgenius.com – Another top-notch designer.

PSD2HTMLConvert your PSD designs to high quality, cross-browser compatible, valid XHTML / CSS markup.

DimpleArt.com – Very affordable, high-quality caricatures you can create for your website, squeeze page, and overall branding. Also makes a great gift for JV partners.

 KillerSalesVideo.com – Create killer promo videos for your product launches.

SamuraiSalesVideos.com – Incredibly powerful sales videos with killer design.

GraphicsGenie.com – Some of THE most talented video designers in the business. They’re a little bit pricier but do incredibly good work.

VideoProducerOnline.com – Scott Lundergan is an award-winning Video Producer that can create a wide-variety of videos for your business.

If you’re looking to create a decent promo on the cheap, then Fiverr.com is a good place to go. They usually have some good video templates that they will customize with your own words and graphics.

 WriteSyntax.com – Cori Padgett is one of the best ghostwriters I’ve ever come across. She’s worked with a number of high-level clients including Jimmy D. Brown, Gabor Olah, Jenn Dize, Sandi Valentine, Ron Davies, and many others.

What really makes her writing stand out is her ability to infuse character and personality. She’s also had her writing published on sites like ProBlogger.net, CopyBlogger.com, Kikolani.com, FamousBloggers.net, TrafficGenerationCafe.com, and many others.

She has a variety of content packages available, including blog posts, media distributions services, newsletter content, and just about everything under the kitchen sink.

SixDegreesContent.com – Courtney Ramirez has a top-notch team of writers who can whip up high-quality blog posts, autoresponder emails, press releases, ebooks, and reports.

ArticleZ.com – A highly-skilled team of writers that will crank out blog posts, autoresponder emails, reports, and more. High value and highly affordable.

 Chris Haddad
Kevin Rogers
Vin Montello
Mike Jezek
Brian Keith Voiles

 Top Autoresponder Copywriters:

AnitaAshland.com – Writes autoresponder emails for Stephen Pierce and many other top marketers.

Jay White – Has written emails for Mike Filsaime and many other top marketers.

 To build a successful online business, you’ll need an ongoing supply of high-quality content. But creating all that content can take up huge blocks of time. And let’s face it, sometimes the hardest thing about writing is looking at that blank screen. But you can crank out content quickly using some high-quality PLR. PLR is content that you can use as your own. Modify it. Repurpose it. And put your name in the byline. Here are some of my favorite sources of high-quality PLR.

SpecialReportClub.com – Hands-down some of the best Internet Marketing PLR content online.

AllPrivateLabelContent.com – High-quality PLR that includes article bundles, autoresponder bundles, and reports.

EasyPLR.com – Very High-quality PLR articles & reports. Created by Nicole Dean: one of my favorite online marketers.

PLRSO.com – Exclusive PLR rights to some of Jimmy D. Brown’s best selling products. This is hands-down some of the very best PLR content available online.

PLRMiniMart.com – PLR content created by one of the best ghostwriter’s online, Tiffany Dow, “Ghostwriter To The Gurus”. Here you’ll find top-notch PLR articles, blog posts, autoresponder emails, ebooks and reports.

Niche-Content-Packages.com – High-quality PLR packages for blogs, websites, eCourses, newsletters and reports.

DIYPLR.com – Run by one of my favorite marketers – Alice Seba. Specializing in step by step, check lists, etc.

 Clickbank – Excellent All-In-One Solution that allows you to accept payments (via credit card and PayPal) and it has a built-in affiliate program. One of the best parts about Clickbank is they will pay your affiliates every 2 weeks so you don’t have to worry about sending out checks or doing mass PayPal payments. On the down side though, Clickbank does have a rather high processing fee.

PayPal – I Use PayPal for most of my products because it’s super simple to setup and they have a much lower processing fee. You can also sign up for Website Payments Pro – which allows you to accept payments via PayPal and by credit card.

Merchant Account – You can also accept credit cards by setting up a merchant account. One of the most trusterd merchant account companies online is PowerPay. I like this one in particular because they understand online businesses – and information marketing in particular.

Chargify.com – This one is a new-comer but looks very promising. If you’re looking for an alternative to PayPal then I would highly recommend taking a look at Chargify. Plus, they have a really nice backend admin area that allows you to easily analyze your business and manage your customers.

 Over the years, I’ve compared a number of different shopping cart solutions… InfusionSoft, NanaCast, 1ShoppingCart, Clickbank, etc, etc, etc…

For anyone who has compared different shopping cart solutions, one of the first things you realize is that there are pros and cons to EVERY solution. The key is to choose the one that best fits the needs of your specific business. Here’s a quick overview of the top shopping cart solutions online:

Clickbank – As noted above, Clickbank is actually a payment processor and shopping cart all built into one. The biggest benefit of Clickbank is simply ease of use. It’s a very plug-and-play solution that allows you to get up and running very quickly. However, Clickbank also has some down sides.  They have a high processing fee (7.5% plus $1 on every sale).  Also, with Clickbank you’re always going to have a higher refund rate and  commission hijacking. One of the big problems with Clickbank is that affiliates can very easily buy through their own links – resulting in commission hijacking. Which is a disservice not only to you but also to your affiliates.

InfusionSoft – One of the premier shopping cart solutions available online. InfusionSoft is EXTREMELY flexible and feature-packed but at the same time it’s VERY technically involved. You pretty much have to hire a programming team to get it up and running to fit your specific needs. So the learning curve is definitely going to be a bit higher with this one. But it is a VERY good solution and offers a lot of incredible features for scaling your business. InfusionSoft allows you to implement upsells, downsells, order page bumps, lifetime affiliate tracking, and much more.

Nanacast – Has many of the same features as InfusionSoft but with a softer learning curve. Nanacast has one-click upsells, downsells, order page bumps, dime sales, fire sales, membership site management, and much more. Nanacast is incredibly feature-packed and you can find out more about them on their website.

Rapid Action Profits – This is a shopping cart that I personally used for our Traffic Dashboard product. It has a number of excellent features but one of the biggest benefits of RAP is that it allows you to do 100% instant commissions via PayPal. This is incredibly powerful for recruiting an army of affiliates. You can read my complete review of RAP here.

1ShoppingCart.com – I haven’t personally used 1ShoppingCart.com but I do know that it has a lot of great features and it’s definitely one to consider.

 Digital Access Pass – If you’re looking to run your membership site with WordPress, then Digital Access Pass is definitely one of the best solutions out there. DAP comes with a built-in shopping cart that lets you do 1-click upsells, coupon codes, and dime sales. It also comes with a feature-packed built-in affiliate program that let you pay per-lead or per-sale. DAP integrates perfectly with WordPress, allowing you to drip-feed all types of content, including WordPress pages and posts, PDF reports, Videos, Audio files, Zip Files, and even images. Built-in File and download protection. Plus a host of other features which you can check out at http://www.digitalaccesspass.com/.

Wishlist Member – Wishlist is another great option for turning your WordPress blog into a full-blown membership site. On the technical side, Wishlist is probably easier than Digital Access Pass. But I personally prefer DAP because of the extra layer of features.

Membergate – Membergate is the Rolls Royce of online membership sites. It’s used by Chris Farrell at ChrisFarrellMembership.com and Jo Barnes at TheSocialNetworkingAcademy.com. I also used it for the Super Affiliate Club and I can tell you it’s an incredibly powerful all-in-one solution.

EooksCreated.com – Have your complete product done-for-you with EbooksCreated.com. For just $999 you can get a 50-page ebook, complete minisite design, and an effective sales page ready to go.

TheProductMachine.com – Another top-notch product creation service. They also have additional packages which include follow-up emails, squeeze page, short report, affiliate page, and affiliate tools.

Salma Hayek:Yes She’s Hot…Yes She’s A Mom…What Else?

Selma is a woman you gotta Like…My husband does…my daughter does…and really..me too. What’s not to like..She’s gourgous, funny, smart, ambitious…all the ingredients that make up the whole package. As a mom she may want to invest in “The Total Transformation Coarse.” And  nip the kiddy ditty’s in the bud…just saying….

This was an interesting read…so like her.

Debuting alongside The Amazing Spider-Man and Katy Perry: Part of Me, Savages landed at number four at the weekend box office and grossed an only-okay $16.2 million. One of the millions who did not — and will not! — see the Oliver Stone‘s gritty drug cartel drama?

Valentina, the 4-year-old daughter of Savages star Salma Hayek, who plays a terrifying Mexican cartel “queen” who kidnaps Blake Lively’s character in the film.

PHOTOS: Salma as a movie stripper!

“She’s not going to watch this movie,” Hayek, 45, recently said on the Tonight Show of her only child, whose father is mogul Francois-Henri Pinault, whom Hayek wed in 2009. “Actually, this was the only movie that she was not on the set. I usually bring her on the set and she always likes to sit right next to the monitor and she bosses everyone around.”

PHOTOS: Salma and other pampered Hollywood tots

And, indeed, that probably wouldn’t have flied with notoriously intense director Stone. “I know Oliver Stone would have not let [Valentina] come in and say, ‘Excuse me, Oliver, let me just take over the set.’ No,'” Hayek joked.

PHOTOS: Salma and her billionaire man

“I mean, it’s very sexy, this movie,” Hayek explained on LIVE! With Kelly last Wednesday, “It’s very, very violent so if you’re the kind of people who like sexy and violence, if you like it hot, this movie is for you. But done beautifully. It’s very elegant.”

This article originally appeared on Usmagazine.com: Salma Hayek: Daughter Valentina, 4, Was Banned from Savages Set

Watch Salma Hayek in a clip from ‘Savages’:

So Selma We Really Like you and my hubby will go see your movie…I’ll wait for your next comedy.

 Video Blogging The Pros and Cons

Video blogging has a lot of advantages over text-based blogging, and it is little wonder that this new technology is catching on all over the globe. Video blogs very effectively grab the attention of web surfers, and people are much more likely to become excited about the dynamic content of a video blog than they are likely to find a written posting very thrilling. The more enthusiastic viewers are about a site, the quicker the word of mouth spreads, and the more traffic the site will get.

Of course, there are plenty of disadvantages to video blogging as well. Hosting a v-blog requires quite a bit of server space, which can make it difficult to get started. It takes more time to process and upload a video file than it does to dash off a quick bit of text, which means that running and updating a video blog can be quite a bit of work.

In addition, web surfers sometimes grow frustrated with the slow loading times of the files on many video blogs. Whether you opt for a video blog or not depends on what kind of subject matter you want to cover, and how much time you can devote to video blogging. Before you decide to pursue a video blog, consider if there is an easier way for you to get your message across.

Blogging News Stories as They Happen

Blogging news stories as they unfold is one of the most
exciting and controversial applications of technology
that bloggers have discovered.

One thing that makes the blogosphere so active is the fact that it is possible to update a blog instantaneously, so the news on blogs tends to be more current than the news in the paper, or
on television.

Unlike news delivered by these other media, news that appears on blogs does not have to travel through a series of editors and administrators before it reaches the public eye. This has some
advantages, and some distinct disadvantages.

One of the most notable cases of news hitting a blog
before appearing in other media took place in July 2005
when terrorism struck London.

As passengers were evacuated from a subway car near an explosion, one man took several photographs of the scene with his
cellular phone, and within an hour these images were
posted online.

First-person accounts of the catastrophe began appearing on blogs soon after these photos appeared, and people all over the world learned about the events in London by reading the words and seeing the photos posted by bloggers.

The fact that these stories and images were being spread
directly by individuals operating without the added
filter of a reporter helped to make the crisis feel very
immediate to people across the globe.

When it comes to blogging, news often appears in a very personal context. This has the potential to be the beginning of an exciting new era of reporting, one that takes “New Journalism”
to it’s logical next step by putting the power to shape
how the news is written and read directly into the hands
of the public.

Many bloggers and cultural commentators who are
champions of the weblog movement feel that this
growing trend of individuals who getting their news
from blogs is a good thing, because it makes the flow of
information more democratic.

By decentralizing the control of news, blogs allow more voices to enter the field of debate about important current events.
However, many people are adamantly opposed to the
use of blogs as news outlets, and there are plenty of
good arguments on this side of the debate.

Unlike newspapers or television stations, few blogs have fact-
checkers, and there is little attention paid to journalistic
accountability on many blogs. This can lead to the rapid
spread of misinformation, and more than one falsehood
has taken the blogosphere by storm.

The questions about whether blogging news as it happens is ethical or not are very complicated, but no matter where you stand on the topic of current events blogs you are almost sure
to agree that this movement has the potential to
revolutionize how modern people get their news.

And That is why blogging news stories as they happen is a movement that is changing the landscape of how news is perceived.

Tomorrow we will look at the rage of teen blogging…see you then.

Blogging for Profit Begins With a Long Term Plan

Many people dream of blogging for profit, and this goal
is not far beyond the reach of someone with average
intelligence, a willingness to work hard, and a basic
grasp of blogging technology.

However, very few people manage to reap the profits they want from their blog.
Most people who attempt to make money with their blogs do not succeed for two reasons.
Often, bloggers have unrealistic expectations of how fast their
readership will grow and how much money they will
make, and when these expectations are not met the
disappointment can crush the desire to continue
blogging.

The other trap that many bloggers fall into
has to do with lack of planning. If you want to turn a
profit as a blogger, the key to success is to make a
realistic plan and stick with it.

 

To succeed at blogging for profit, the main thing that
you will need is a large readership. The higher your
traffic, the more advertisers will agree to pay you.
However, cultivating the regular visitors that you will
need in order to make a profit isn’t easy.

As more and more blogs appear each day, having a great
idea or a wonderful writing style is no longer enough to get
attention. You need to be able to market your blog
effectively.

Too many bloggers spend all of their time writing posts
and almost no time marketing their project. To be
certain, updating as often as you can is a great way to
keep your blog high on blogrolls and high in blog
search engines like technorati, and once your readers
know that you update frequently they will return to your
site on a regular basis.

However, it does not matter how often you update if nobody is reading your page,
so don’t skimp on the time that you spend drawing visitors to your site.

To make your dreams of blogging for profit a reality,try decreasing your number of posts and using some of that time to draw new visitors by setting up link exchanges with other bloggers, making contacts in the blog community, and following other established modes of winning traffic.

Of course, even if you are a marketing genius or have a
really great idea for a blog, success is not going to
happen overnight. Building the kind of readership that
blogging for profit requires takes time, and in all
likelihood it will be at least several months before you
are able to turn much of a profit.

Try to stay committed to your blogging project during this initial rough period.
To stay motivated, set goals for how often you will update and how many readers you want to attract,
and then reward yourself for sticking with your plan.

Tomorrow we will look at Blogging News Stories as They Happen and why that is profitable.

Blogging 101 And Beyond

Blogging Readiness

Blogging 101

Blogging 101 is mostly about the blogging
vocabulary. To understand blogs, you need to know
the terms blog, platform, domain, and web host.

Once you have mastered these key elements of
blogging, you can enter any conversation about
blogging with confidence. After you know what
exactly a blog is, you will be on your way to
passing the final exam of blogging 101.

Blog is short for weblog, which simply means a
series of online posts presented in reverse
chronological order. That’s all! Most blogs are text,
but there are also photo blogs and video blogs. The
rest of blogging 101 has to do with the technical
side of things.

If you are setting up a blog, you will
need a platform, a web host, and a domain. A
blogging platform is a computer software program
that allows you to write posts and to update your
blog.

Your platform is also what you use to design
the look of your blog, from color scheme to font
size.

The web host is sort of like the virtual file
cabinet where your blog is stored. Your computer
communicates with the host when you upload or
edit a post.

The domain is the online address of
your blog, and usually ends in ‘dot com’. Now that
you know what a blog is, what a platform is, and
what domains and hosts are, congratulate yourself!
You have passed blogging 101 and it’s baby steps as a great idea for a blogging web site is no longer enough.

Because there are so many blogs and web sites about
blogs on the internet, it can be tough to distinguish your
blogging web site from all of the others.

Whether you are starting up a new web site aimed at bloggers or
whether you are looking to make your existing blogging
site more distinctive, the key to building and
maintaining a site that will capture the interest and
attention of the blogging community is finding your
niche.

If you can fill a unique need in a way that no
other web site does, you’ll be able to build a lasting
readership among web surfers. Once you have
discovered a niche, you will still have a lot to do, but
finding your place in the blogosphere is the place to
begin.
Every great blogging web site starts with a great idea,
and you can’t build a successful site that will last
without one.

There are many great sites aimed at
today’s bloggers, and competition for the attention of
this growing demographic is fierce. To make your
blogging web site stand out from the pack, you will
need to offer something that no other site is currently
offering, or you will need to do the same thing that an
already popular site does but in a more impressive or
valuable way.

One way to discover an ideal model for your blogging
web site is to look at the sites that have successfully
captured a blogging audience already to determine if
you can appropriate some of their strategies to help
realize your vision.

Of course, you will also need to add
a unique flair to your project in order to stand apart
from your competition. Many people agree that the web
sites that do the best in today’s market are the sites that
have the most personality.

The fiercely individual surfers who are bloggers are a demographic that
responds especially strongly to personality, so consider
how you can give your site a unique and attractive
feeling by lending your own voice and sensibility to
your site’s design and content.

Once you have a great idea for your site, have
pinpointed a special niche that you are well equipped to
fill, and have infused the site with personality, the next
step is figuring out how to get the word out to bloggers.

In the long run, a great idea just isn’t enough to propel
your blogging web site to success. You will need to
draft a smart and realistic marketing plan in order to
draw readers to your site. Once you hook a blogger,
your great content will keep them coming back, but it is
vital to get that first glance or your site won’t have a
chance to shine.

So there you have it blogging 101 and beyond.

Entrepreneurship Through…Lemonade

Inflation  impacts the lemonade business…and good old fashion entrepreneurship through…the lemonade stand    is alive, well and flourishing.

Ellisa was one of thousands of young participants in this year’s Lemonade Day Detroit, an initiative sponsored primarily by Huntington Bank to teach kids how to run a business through the time-honored tradition of a lemonade stand. Lemonade Day harnesses the natural resourcefulness and hustle of Detroiters and fills a gap by offering lessons the city’s struggling school system probably doesn’t.

Each participant gets a workbook with lessons on capital equipment and consumables, credit, debt, return on investment, and supply and demand.

The idea is to teach kids about financial literacy by having them take part in something fun. The kids are also given the instructions to save a little, spend a little, and, and share a little in the form of a donation. (Ellisa is spending her money on books and donating to the ALS Foundation in her grandfather’s memory.)

Lemonade Day started in Houston in 2007, when the founder’s daughter asked him for some money and he suggested she earn it herself.  That morphed into lessons about entrepreneurship that anybody launching a startup business would need, as well as basic instruction in math, financial literacy, customer service, Read More…Lemonade Day Detroit Teaches Kids Entrepreneurship Xconomy
