Gmail Tabs – Stick Or Twist?

Gmail tabs

Do you like the new Gmail tabs? I read my Gmail using Microsoft Outlook so from that point of view it doesn’t matter too much how it’s presented on Gmail itself because generally I don’t use it but

Gmail tabs could be a bit of killer for email marketing though 🙁 Maybe, maybe not! I have rules to control my email so that the stuff I’m not really that interested in still comes in but gets shoved out of the way until I’m ready to look at it which of course might be never. I’m betting that it’s not going to make a big difference as people generally filter out what they are not interested in with at least the delete key anyway, they will still be keen to read what they are interested in at least some of the time and those they will make sure they get to see.

What Is Facebook Edgerank And Why Is It Important?

Facebook Edgerank

[UPDATE: Facebook no longer use the Edgerank algorithm, a new article will explain how the new Facebook ranking system works soon.]

If your just using Facebook domestically then you probably don’t need to care about the Facebook EdgeRank Algorithm but if you are promoting anything in any way then you probably do!

EdgeRank is how Facebook decides what and where things are shown in Facebook news feeds. I’ll show you what you can do to improve your Edgerank after these next few explanatory paragraphs but it’s really straightforward unless you want to get right down into the detail. READ MORE

How To Add Images To Ten Minute Pages From WordPress

Ten Minute Pages - Inserting Images

Ten Minute Pages is an excellent WYSWIG Squeeze Page builder from Kyle Graham. It’s not perfect but it’s much better than the alternatives that I have seen out there so far and it’s getting better all the time. The support has been pretty good so far.

One of the things some people have asked about is how to insert images into Ten Minute Pages on the WordPress plugin version so have made the video below to show you how to do this and it’s really easy!

Stuart Ross’s Shirt

Stuart Ross Shirt

Stuart Ross, the founder of the Six Figure Mentors, is excellent at many things and there is little to criticise from my point of view. Coming from me that’s quite good because I am quite outspoken sometimes and I don’t always care too much who I am outspoken to (sometimes I get in trouble for it). I just think it’s better in the long run to tell the truth. There is one thing I don’t like about Stuart Ross and that’s that shirt. I can never forgive that shirt, it should be burned … at a fashion show. What, what, you say you like it, nooo, I don’t believe you. You need new glasses. READ MORE

Don’t Put All Your Eggs In One Basket

Multiple Streams

The Big Deal About Multiple Streams

If you quit or lose your job then for most people that’s it until they get another job. As you might know that alone is enough reason to have multiple streams of income. Even if you have your own business you never know how it’s going to go, maybe there will be low spots or the product or service you offer stops selling. If you have at least 2 income streams that are working then you have some insurance especially if the income from either is enough to keep you going. The thing is not to have all your eggs in one basket! READ MORE

Hosting Nightmares And Solutions

Hosting Nightmares

Hosting Nightmares – Arggggghhhhhhhhhh

I really don’t like hosting nightmares, it can take a lot of time up sorting them out either by fixing it yourself when you can or by contacting your hosting company’s support.

I have been having hosting problems for the last week or so but I’m still going to sing my hosting company’s praises because they have always been there to sort things out as best they can and as fast as they can. They also put up with me when I get a bit frustrated with it. I am fairly patient but I still get a bit fed up sometimes. And, as usual with them, I have a happy ending. If you read my post Migrating WordPress And Some Tips you will know I touched on how important it was to have good support there. READ MORE

The Ingredients Needed To Make A Successful Online Entrepreneur

Richard Branson

The Online Entrepreneur

This post is more of a compilation that I have pulled together from the musings and teachings of a lot of successful online entrepreneurs. After a while you start to notice a pattern of common traits. It’s not just about online entrepreneurs but any entrepreneur, athlete, musician or other successful person.

There’s a certain amount of “those that would lead” and “those that would follow” or if you like “I’m going to make a difference” or “I’m going to go with the flow” and it’s not cut and dried as we are often a mixture of different traits. READ MORE

Bad Google? Are They Overstepping The Mark?

Bad Google

Bad Google? What Happened, Perhaps Your’ Not Well?

Oh boo hoo, Google, you were one of our best friends but now it seems we cannot trust you after all!

What is it with companies that become so big? Do they have to become corrupted? The usual shyster accountants and lawyers seem to get control and then it’s all about the bottom line followed by a moral spiral downwards. Why is it that companies have to constantly grow? We all know how dangerous monopolies can be and there is a point at which a company cannot grow much more anyway so should that be the emphasis? READ MORE

The Secret List Of Blocked Web Sites

Blocked Web Sites

Secret Blocked Web Sites … Scary Stuff!

I can’t remember where I picked this article up from, probably twitter or something, maybe Facebook. Anyway, I have lifted the text below from this article on TorrentFreak – Pirate Bay Proxy Now Included in Secret ISP Blocklist.

If governments and/or big companies get control of the internet who will the good, the bad and the ugly be then?

It’s not to do with whether you agree or not with torrent sites and digital piracy it’s to do with the the fact that there is a secret list of blocked web sites at all. Right or wrong, up to now the internet has been a pretty much unrestricted space even if it’s a case of the good, the bad and the ugly. Once you start restricting things where do you draw the line? Who decides? It’s an eternal discussion but once governments and / or large companies get control of the internet things are never going to be the same again and what you can and can’t see will then be decided for you. If blocked web sites are in a secret list then you won’t even know about what you can’t see! READ MORE

Review – 2013, The Year Of Pure Leverage?

Pure Leverage – It’s New And It’s Exploding

I love SFM which I’m still part of. I didn’t like Empower Network. I love Pure Leverage.

If you want to learn about Internet Marketing the right way then The Six Figure Mentors is the place to go but Pure Leverage is just exploding so fast that now is clearly the time to get in. You can be part of one or more training programs as long as you can make money out of them or through them. You are probably going to make more out of Pure Leverage faster than The Six Figure Mentors and Empower Network so I am recommending Pure Leverage and I’m in Pure Leverage. READ MORE

No Engine And Without Flapping

Gliding In Sail Planes

I used to think I was scared of heights but it turns out that this is not true, I’m scared of edges. I’m scared to the point of vertigo and the compulsion to jump just to get it over with. I can jump out of a plane (with a parachute of course), I can para-glide off of hills and I can happily get in any plane or helicopter. Put me on a cliff top and I’m a wreck.

I could write a ton about this subject but I can’t really write a book here so I might do an article on this now and again. For today I hope this will give you a flavour of this incredible, unique and much undervalued sport. Sometimes a little scary, sometimes incredibly beautiful and always a privilege to be in an environment we are not really meant to be in. READ MORE

Simple Solo Ads – Part 3 – An Adventure With List Brokers

List Brokers

In Simple Solo Ads – Part 1 I talked about simple solo ads using other solo list owners. In Simple Solo Ads – Part 2 – Swap’s And Update I talked about swapping and banking with other solo list owners.

In this post I want to start talking about list brokers. This is either a step up or a step sideways depending on your point of view. The opportunity is to get more targeted and better quality leads but it’s a little bit more tricky and more of a gamble than sending your solo’s through other internet marketing solo list owners.

I don’t know why it works?

Law Of Attraction?

Have you heard of the Law of Attraction? If you have then maybe you thought it was a load of old rubbish and if you haven’t then maybe you will think it’s a load of old rubbish. Maybe you will think it’s amazing. Maybe it doesn’t matter because many successful people believe in the Law of Attraction and whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, it seems to work. Actually it makes a lot of sense and it’s not really so mysterious when you think about it.

Ok, Ok, So What Is “The Law Of Attraction”?

If you boil it down the Law of Attraction means that if you think about something in the right way it will manifest itself. You will attract that thing to you or you will be attracted to it. This works for the good and the bad so in a way, be careful what you wish for! It doesn’t pop out of the air like a genie out of a lamp though, we are not talking about a miracle although sometimes it can be miraculous. READ MORE

iLivingApp.com – Is It, Isn’t It, Haven’t Got A Clue, OMG, I Just Don’t Know!

iLivingApp

Well I’m giving it a go!

I like to recommend things that I personally either believe in myself or have been up front about.

iLivingApp launched on the 1st February 2013 so the truth is nobody knows how well it will do yet but from the due diligence that I have done it mostly looks like it’s worth ago. Whatever happens, with such a low entry cost it won’t be a big deal if it doesn’t go the course. If you don’t join, especially at the beginning, it does do well and you miss out then it’s bit like not playing the lottery when you had the winning numbers. READ MORE

White As A Sheet? Now You Wish You Had Paid More Attention (It’s All Gone)

A bit of an old chestnut this one but I know that some of us are still not taking this seriously and sooner or later there will be tears …

Let Me Tell You A Story

A few years back a small recruitment agency who was a customer of mine for their telecoms and who I liked were so far as I can tell doing OK and were building a good business. Time passes and one day I get a phone call that went something like this  (I don’t remember the exact time or the exact words but this is close enough):

Customer: “Hi Stuart, I wonder if you can help us out, can you get our phone records for the last 3 months” READ MORE

Simple Solo Ads – Part 2 – Swap’s And Update

Swap’s And Update

Scary Huh! Or maybe not, perhaps you have fond memories for Noel Edmonds Swap Shop (an old UK TV show). Anyway, it was the best I could do 🙂

This is not about Swap Shop. It’s a “Simple Solo Ads” update and I will talk about swapping, click swapping. It doesn’t matter if you are new at internet marketing or have been around for a while, swapping is a great way to increase the size of your list. It doesn’t normally cost any money but it will take up a little bit of time. You can bank clicks as well. I will of course explain 🙂 READ MORE

Gold Marketing Extreme, Brand Up

Marketing Extreme

I went to a 3 day training session over the weekend. It was a DEA (Digital Experts Academy) Gold training course. Altogether it was really good. I have to admit that I didn’t really enjoy the first day as I think it lacked content and was, well a bit boring and repetitive. Some people liked it but not me, I guess nothing is perfect.  The second and third days were fantastic though and I can genuinely rave about them.

The course was hosted by Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek. There were two main speakers, Red Rose (for real) and Daniel Wagner.  Red spoke for one and a half days and Daniel for a little less than half a day. READ MORE
