Will The Recession Ever End?

Bookmark and Share
The Internet is full of people spreading fear and disinformation about the recession.  It is easy to get caught up in the fear mongering and never leave our shell.  Fear can drive us into our homes, and truly believe the only solution is to save money, buy gold or whatever.  The truth be told all the solution gimmicks that people online offer are pure scams.  We all have the same ability to succeed in our dreams during a recession or during a boom.  Interestingly the inherent risk in funding a major real business operation does not change during these times.  In fact if we are smart and do not follow the herds of people who listen to the mainstream media and talking heads what we see in front of us is the materialization of an extremely bright future.  For example I made more money this summer treasure hunting than I ever did in any summer doing anything else.  My treasure hunting equipment was purchased using cash that I made online.  If I had just listened to the news and believed the sky was falling eventually that would have happened.  Now all of the people who used to harass me to get a job, are scratching their heads as the so called WORK or more aptly titled SLAVERY has dried up.  For me I tend to throw up huge risks for big rewards.  For example if I beach comb an island for shells and sea glass where the ferry costs a thousand bucks, most likely what I find out there will far surpass what I would find on a crowded tourist beach where billions of people loot anything that is valuable.  This is very similar to online business.  For example people who pioneer new territory and do not walk down the same paths as others make more money.  I do not spend much time on the net any more but still enjoy its amazing residuals.  It is kind of like a gift that follows me in life.  I am very thankful for it.


Change Your Blog For 2010

The years seem to go by quickly.  I started this blog a long time ago back in 2008 which is ancient history by these days standards.  I have learned a lot about the Internet, and it has taught me many things, I have met many people, and enjoyed the billions of hours that I have spent online.  The real world does not have an ounce of the information that the virtual world does.  Well this post may seem out of the blue but I was struggling with a blog of mine that for some reason had a weird theme on.  I changed it and am really happy I did.  I am not personally big into blogger or word press themes, as we all know any one that works is good enough.  But some people need a new space to symbolize a new beginning, and a new outlook on life.  It may help to check out many resources out there that over the years that I have linked to on this blog.  I will just throw out another word press resource that I have never tried but is worth checking out for anyone trying to go pro in blogging.  The resource is ITHEMES.  Check it out and tell me what you think.  Hopefully it could help us all get more enjoyment out of our blogs.  The Internet is here to change lives and inspire people.  If you do not blog, try one today.  It will be one of the best experiences of your life.


Make Fast Money For The Holidays 2010

For people in need of a quick holiday boost try online advertising on a website.  There are many companies out there including Google AdSense that are quick, fun and easy to use.  We all could use a little more money to throw into business ideas, or buy presents for our family during the various seasons that fall in the winter time.  If you are seeking non AdSense opportunities check out various companies and give them a go.  For example I have never used Advertise Space ever, but I suspect it is much different than AdSense.  For some people the alternatives may help them make significantly more money.  After all the best way of getting out of the rut that all people get into sometimes is to try something new.  Making money online is always a fun learning experience because we could all use a buck even if we are just throwing it into a silver mine investment or whatever.  Best of luck this year and I hope that your holidays will be cheerful.


Domain Theft

Bookmark and Share
99 percent of the web domain companies out there basically sucker people into buying a domain.  They site the branding aspects of having one's own domain name.  People desperately want their own place online so they quickly fill in a few fields and are done.  After the site becomes mildly successful the domain is usually taken by company B that is actually owned by the domain company.  This creates a harder line to trace and limits liability and exposure to company A.  The truth is it may be helpful to get a team of lawyers, and IT people to tie up your domain if you feel it and your blog slash site or whatever is going to be a hit.  Learn the laws as well.  Under common law domain theft is completely illegal, yet under corporate law it is basically legal.  Going the extra mile can ensure that your business becomes something, instead of being the story of how you created a great blog that got stolen right when it really went viral online.  If you do get a domain stolen it is important to put your foot down and write up who stole it in forums, on websites, and even create a blog dedicated to the shady activity.  At least you could help other people know which corporations are to blame.  We are here to start vibrant online businesses and not contribute to the casino where the person behind the curtain makes millions while everyone else basically fails.  I believe domain theft is a major factor that has driven most budding bloggers, and webmasters back to social media, because after all YouTube can suspend an account but they cannot really make your name or brand disappear, because you are who you are.  There will always be a network for you.  For further reading check out Domain Theft Dot Org and Prevent Domain Theft Dot Com.  If you have been a victim of the domain steal game that is rampant online than please leave a comment and educate the readers of this blog about your experience!

Website Ads That Don't Get Clicked, On A Product Orientated Websites

Bookmark and Share
Some websites  sometimes do not do well in the pay per click advertising world.  For example a person may open up a very successful metal detector review website.  They get substantial traffic because people value their opinion.  They also get substantial search traffic that uses their information than leaves the website.  It may be helpful to try an ad company that does pay per view advertising.

Following The Online Ad Revenue Curve

Bookmark and Share
Many people are betting on increases in online ad revenue to get them through the times.  But what most people do not know is that if we adjust the online revenue to its recipients, inflation and a host of other factors that all in all online advertising is not doing so well.  There are some markets that are increasing and obviously are worth any one's time but do not expect online advertising to be as strong as it was.  It is easy to point to the decline in print medium advertising, but certain things are still well suited to printed paper including local businesses, events, and other things as well.  It is important to realize that all hype is just that.  At the end of the day we need dollars and cents in our bucket or we are wasting our time.  Just always try to avoid doing something because everyone else is doing it.  Find your niche and rock it.


The Instructor Said Go Home And Write A Page Tonight

 When in school, or at work we are often told what to do.  First we are introduced to the topic.  We set out on specific tasks.  Along the way we pick up skills and gain experience.  The title to this post is a typical cadence that many people have when blogging.  They write just to write.  They upload a video just to see it live.  Where are the goals and the game plans my friends?  When we are free to do as we like, it is essential to do as we please.
If your interests today is cars, than start a car blog now.  If tomorrow your interest is growing citrus trees than begin a Vlog documentary of what you are doing.  The social online medium is largely a documentation of our lives and hardly ever works when people are forced to work at something.  The world changes radically every moment but we are all unique.  That is the medicine that we must all tap.  That which makes us special and like no other person on earth.
Do not wait to put content  up.  I personally believe we must all focus on the content and not the hits or the most appropriate order.  People put up YouTube accounts for instance.  They are on every day as a viewer but hardly put up a couple of videos a year.  If you are trying to get into the partner program for instance it may help to have two separate channels.  One where you put up your master work occasionally and wait for the views and another channel where you document completely your day and interests.  And you will find that the channel B where you just relax and enjoy the process will bring the strongest social media personal presence which is ultimately what life is all about.  Worry about people.  Be kind.  Let them speak.  Listen.  And be appreciative.  Reputation is an easy thing to not care about.  But it is a hard thing to build.  Think of it as a slow brick by brick process.  Focus on the content and be responsive rather than trying to engage other people.  That way you will get those who want to know you.  This is the groove of social branding.  The rest is the details.  Important stuff?

The Kind Of Blogs And Websites That Will Always Do Well

Pursuing one's interests through the online medium is crucial for success.  For instance if one is into metal detecting, documenting finds on YouTube, having a blog log book, selling metal detecting equipment on a website, selling one's finds on eBay, etc are essential parts of building a business.  One can at the same time review books on a blog that one reads, maintain personal journals and vlogs about anything, or even use the online media for debate and dialogue.  It is important to enjoy the people, sites, and services online and even create a few of our own. 
What are some new online tools besides the obvious social media sites like Blogger, Twitter, YouTube, etc?

Community Rediscovery, Life, Past , Present, And Future

The web has really changed from the 90s. New people, ideas, and websites have revolutionized how humanity views reality, itself. People have used the web in profound ways. Time is spent. Some people have a constant legacy. They keep up a post a day on their blogs or whatever. Others log in, and a few years later are gone never to be heard from again. I believe it is important that we all meditate on how we spent the last few minutes, days, years, decades or whatever. Reflecting can be a healthy and energizing experience. In some ways for me the 90s seems similar to today. What has changed is my interests and my ability to know myself a little better. These days I live with a bit more urgency to see a variety of goals and objectives that could easily be forgotten. For example this week I am going to try new things. The whole point is to better my life and understanding of what I want to do with it. At the end of the day life is what it is and life is quite short. It is important that today we do what we really need, and really want because the moment is all that is ours. If you are looking for something new online, check out the site The Web Blend.

Why Is Facebook The Talk Of The Town?

I have a confession to make.  I use youtube alot and facebook never.  So what I say in this article may not make much sense.  If you want to be enertained watch my video below.

Well back to the topic at hand.  Face Book very similarly to most tech companies is embedded into the global industrial complex.  We are led to believe many things about it but at the end of the day face book is more like infrastructure than a social site.  Many people have moved on while others use it more and more.  The latest changes have led many to question if it will rule the web.  I believe similar hype was laid on Twitter.  In reality neither is true.  These sites are important and do have tremendous monopolies on web traffic and attention but I for one never use Face Book.  Because of this I believe web dominance is slightly perceptual.  Moving on if you are like me just into finding out what is new on the web check out Talki a site that lets forums be embeddable which is amazing stuff.  This should help some blogs get more attention. Also if you dig the multi media evolution check out the site Cool Iris.  That is about it.  Hope your day goes well.

How To Reach The Highest Potential Energy Of Life And Business

First sort out things that are impossible, impractical, irrelevant, or just strange.  The mind likes to attach to what we can not have.  Sometimes people spend their whole lives following these images, concepts, and ideas.

The real idea is to plant the seeds for your success.  This may include research and knowledge.  This way you know that you are doing the right thing.  This is what you really want, but also the right direction.

Do it today.  Gain your skills.  Get it together for success now.

Decrease conflict.  This may come from doing stuff repeatedly and realizing that we should be doing other things.  Doing what is right will subside the inner conflict.

Opinion About The Twitter Retweet Feature

Twitter seems to be moving a bit away from its instant messaging roots with this one.  Bit Rebels had an interesting article about how the automation aspects of the retweet take away the user generated aspects of the RT.  Outspoken media had a pretty similar article as well.  Going down the search results, all of the major blogs had similar feelings.  I personally have been feeling strange about many of the choices made by social communities.  They all seem to be converging when their original characteristics is what people signed on for.  I have no idea if the backlash is just something people do, than get over it, or a credible opinion.  Who knows.  Twitter is about a community that effectively drives how it is used.  Twitter has redefined how information is spread online.  Without that community many great blogs would remain obscure.  We would have a few less Internet celebrities, and the sky would fall!  Just kidding.  I am personally a believer that the true use of Twitter is in recreation.  It gets the world out, spreads info, but never should be replaced with content creation like videos.  Mashable points out that the normal retweets still can be used.

What is your opinion on all of this?

Expanding Your Business

We live in a world where people feel looking good on paper is everything.  Unfortunately when customer, and partner testimonials carry more weight that packaging most people can see why expansion should never be high on the list of things to do.  It is important to find a best practice, where the good or service has a consistent ear mark of quality.  Business must focus on the warehouse level, product development, then create another division to focus on the customer and support.  We must avoid, especially online the quick and easy way to tapping search energy.  Because desperation will be recorded forever.  Stay steady, and keep the people that you have.  They are the most important.  Expansion is an option when demand moves beyond the threshold of normal operations.  This will keep business costs low, and save a lot of wasted time.

Solar Power For Your Online Business

Anyone who works a lot online knows the energy needs are great.  For example I often leave my computer on all day and continually work on it.  One solution would be simply to live in an apartment with wi fi and utilities included.  But for the many people who live in homes, apartments or any where else where they need to foot the bill, reducing energy costs is crucial.  Solar power is one solution worth considering.  Solar power is very popular with many start ups out on the west coast, where the desert sun gives people an amazing amount of energy.  Generally the power is stored in some kind of grounded battery or is given over to the utility company for x amount of dollars.  But many people just have small portable panels just good enough to keep the computer powered.  They can work with all of the lights off.  This is really a generator grade system, where people just need some ready energy.  One issue with energy is getting a constant flow.  For example some computers crash without total energy saturation.  While others do well where the grid is not as powerful.

Some solar companies that I found on Google:

1.  Solar Power Inc.
2.  Solar Sphere

Money Is Not An Economic Resource Because

Money is largely imaginary.  In my country money amounts to the exchange of debt.  These bank created notes are basically paper that we all agreed could be exchanged for something else.  Real things on the other hand hold real value.  As money inflates, or is devalued an economy tends to lean towards things that really work like resources.  For example a tree can turn into wood.  The wood can be turned into a house.   Therefore this tree is incredibly useful.  Also the tree may produce nuts that can be eaten.  We often for example lay claim to these nut trees through property rights.  People who are rich in these resources ascribe large amounts of wealth.  For example land with an oil well can make someone more wealth, than can a person who works in a corporation for money.  Though this principle is not always true, sometimes hard work can out produce ascribed wealth, generally the laws of economics are with resource rich peoples and countries.

Many of these same economic laws can be applied to the online space.  For example if a blogger is able to control a niche they are economically rewarded.  They are able to amass more resources than a person with a website that gets 30 hits a day.

What Are Some Sustainable Practices In Business

Whether you are just trying to make your life and business more green, or your goals are to change the world there are somethings that you must consider.

1.  Think sustainable.  For example replacing bottled water, with filtered water is simple.  Reducing energy output is simple.  Buying equipment that lasts longer is simple.  Creating innovative products is simple.  What could you do today to further improve how your business operates in a sustainable manner.

2.  Fine tune problem areas.  This is something that all people need.

3.  Long term sustainability goals.  It can sometimes be too costly to immediately jump on the band wagon.  More expensive changes can be done gradually to avoid the sticker shock.

4.  Publicly declare ideals.  Get the team on the boat of sustainability.  Mind leads to results always.

5.  Brain storm in the name of sustainability.  Get other people and outside opinions on the matter.

6.  Attend a sustainability conference, take a course, or spend some time with an expert in the field.

7.  Join some kind of sustainable business network.

8.    Become a member of a sustainability council.

9.  Check out the green blogs like MNN.

10.  Think about how you get your energy.  Magnetic motors, and robots that use the force of our rotating earth for energy,  for example are not science fiction.  Think solar my friends.  The sun brings us plants.  Plants have their own solar panels on them.  Also bio diesel is also an option.

11.  Free energy is real.  Do not let people fool you.

12.  Use some frugal living hacks.  People have informatively overcame financial obstacles in their lives.  For example some people hand wash their clothes leaving them much cleaner.  Simple principles like that can be applied to business.  We often are not aware of these things.  I try to improve my life every day.

13.  Never limit yourself to what you think is true.  Most science fiction for example is actually a reality.  The technology has yet to spread.  Below for example is something strange I filmed in the sky.  Who knows what it is.  Few people ever look up with a telescope and believe that those small dots are only stars.  That is how the sustainability world works.  It is vast and limitless.

Why Is Everything Impossible

Often when we think of the word impossible, we often forget what these thoughts really mean.  Sometimes we think something to mean something else.  Sometimes when starting a business seems impossible, we really are not doing what we truly love.  Our mind may just be dropping a subtle hint.

So what is possible?

Basically impossibility is a gauge that other people use on you to gain control over your actions.  They generally do not want to see you succeed.  These words may be a badge of future success rather than some kind of trap.  'Do not listen to people.  Money is a trap.'  Are just a few cliches that we must  dissect to realize our dreams.

If we want more money for instance, the real question is what do we really desire?  Comfort, stability, toys, happiness, or whatever.  Fill in the blank with what you want.  But never forget the x factor my friends.  The unknown forces of good that exist and pull together the world that we perceive.  A knowledge of this is vital to business success.

Never listen to others, is one of the best pieces of advice on earth.  People just say stuff.  Learn to listen but not internalize. They may just be contributing to the sound space.  Realize that people who communicate excessively do so to fill some kind of void.  Silence is the best teacher.  This is why the best business plans are hashed up in complete silence.

Ditch your road map.  Face reality.  Get it done.  Find ways to improve yourself this year that you can carry on to the year after that.

Are You A Leader Or A Boss

Simple solutions usually lick complex problems.  Many people fly around the world to realize simple things about their life.  Others do not go anywhere and never face the same set of things.

Business is like that.  Online business is not simple.  Do not get fooled.  If you do not have something to sell, it may help to develop that first.  For example manufacturing bicycle parts in your garage could lead to an online bike part website that you made and maintain.

Business is never simple.  The sheer complexity of the competitive world is astonishing.  Sometimes good manners is not enough.  We are in a world saturated with people wanting to do work that the world has little demand for.  Because of this product development is everything.

Being original, independent, and creating true time honored quality is everything.  Understanding the complex and intricate that customers have with the product and your website is crucial.  What are you doing about it?

Ultimately the things matter.  The consumer has more choices these days.  I can personally find stuff on my computer that is far newer and better than I could find at any store.

I largely go by reviews and brand recognition.  If you are new to the game obviously quality and branding are huge.  Those are literally annoying words that basically mean get it right the first time.  Do not waste people's time.  Do not be foolish.  In online business we all have only one chance.  Reputations are gone with the wind unless we are super respectful of the space, our product, our customers, and the list goes on till the cows come home.

The big word is leadership my friends.  Leaders always do well in business because of their tenacious initiative.  They get it done while the world sleeps.  They are always driving fore ward instinctively and tirelessly.  Are you a leader?

How Can The Internet Be Used For Competitive Advantage In Business

Can the physical body manifest success?  Often the answer is yes.  Many people neglect this simple fact.  They really push it and end up a wreck.  This is common.

Can success bring healing to the physical body?  The answer is most likely no.  Destiny may be a pretty large thing.  It may be colorful.  But when it happens people notice that there life is not much different, no matter how many diamonds are on their hand, or cars in their garage.

So this is not a yin and yang relationship.  With that said the Internet is great for learning, networking, and making cash.  We can find ourselves here.  It is the Internet that inspires people to do what they would have never done otherwise.  Some grow their hair out.  Others walk across the country.  Having and achieving these lofty goals is really what life is all about.  Do not get carried away with money, or any other promise that is given from the TV or the world.

Is user generated content diminishing over time?  In some ways it is.  People loose interest in the medium.  After the hype is generated from humans, corporations start to take interest in the traffic and people leave.  This is a similar life cycle of most community sites, and social media mediums.  This may even be the cycle for the Internet itself.  That is why bigger personal fortunes were made in the early Internet.  Than as it grew and changed, more people could make less money. 

In the end it all comes back to you.  Who cares about this or that.  What are you all about?  Where are you going.  And how can the Internet take you there?

2010 Link Day: Wix And Total Apps

I have realized that many of my posts have not been overly useful lately. And I set out on this blog, to finally create a site that people can learn something from. The essence of the web is other websites. It is hard to understand that if we spend all of our time on youtube. But that is exactly what I have been doing lately, so my blogging has been missing in action. This post will hopefully lead some people down some cool trails on the interwebs.

The first site that I cam across is Wix. This is a great service that helps people do stuff on flash pages. Wix just seems very useful for people who care about the looks which are really important.

Total Apps is anouther cool site about applications. This is important because now days everyone is talking about how apps are the future. Sprawled across every paper and magazine is app this and that. This is important info my friends to understand where this online matrix virtual reality is taking us next.

That is about it. Report back to me your thoughts on those links, and have a good day!

I Have Lost All Interest In Twitter! What Should I Do?

Is Twitter all the rage my friends? I honestly do not know any more because I hardly ever use it. I have given up texting, messaging, and anything else that resembles real communication. Why? I just need time for other things.

So how can I redeem such a negative blog post by marketing standards? Who knows lol. But check out ADLY if you are interested in making money on Twitter. Adly is in tweet advertising similar to many other services.

If your Twitter account is used more personally with people than you may want to think Twice about this. It may be less intrusive to get a sponsored link in your description if you really need that.

I have been thinking long and hard about the whole selling out think online. But I have come to one conclusion. Even the hottest youtube or twitter commidity of the moment will eventually fade. If your powers can make you decent money now why not take it!

On the other hand you may loose visitors because of this. But I am no purist. I try to put advertising on everything. Why? Because the best type of money is here and now.

But all to their own. Tell me how your day is going in the comment section.

The Real Crazy Challenges When Setting Up A Business

Businesses tend to always go under. Do not ask me why. We must turn that fear into a constructive energy that goes right to the point of energy. Here we will unlock the money quickly and effectively.

People tend to give up on successful ventures. Take a musician for example. They love music up until the point where they get good. It is then that their craft becomes boring.

This is the hump we must all get out of. The cage that we must all pick the lock on. This my friends is the ultimate caveat.

There are people who put up one video on YouTube and get millions of hits. No questions asked. There are others who put up ten a day their entire lives and never get over 3 hits a piece. Where is the justice here my friends?

Then there are those that go for their calling. They become noble and do well. They were shaky in the beginning but in the end were pros.

The 10 Real Pillars Of Success

1. Always look to successful people, and not the experts. Successful people do not need a title, or associations. Experts are really constructed and not made. Look to real things to achieve your goals, the world around you, travel, and action.

2. Keep it all in prospective. Do not get trapped chasing an idea that you will just do till you get to the end. If things clearly seem pointless move out and away.

3. The time is now. If you want to move to California for instance, do it right this moment. Now is always the best time. Planning and thinking about the future is pointless. Time is not forever. Get out there.

4. Have your own ideas, actions, and goals. Do not let others dictate that stuff to you.

5. Make a major change today. Find the thing that would have the biggest impact on your life and do it. Take that trip. Who cares. Success does not wait for anyone. And no matter what the world always spins and ultimatly no one cares. So do not listen to the life pressures forcing you into the norms of success.

6. Never set monetary goals. This is what many people do and is extremely pointless. Accomplish real and satisfying things and the money and acknowlegements will follow.

7. Things change. Get over it. It is not where things are going that is important, but rather where you are going, what you are doing and ultimately how you feel about the big picture. Your life is important to you. Never forget that. If you are stranded, do not look externally. Face life, smell the coffee, wake up and make changes.

8. The economy will never get good. Never wait for something to happen. If you want to go to Africa just do it now. The losses are an illusion. Never cling to the vestiges of anything.

9. There will always be problems with everything. We live in a broken world. Do not internalize it or the sick people or you will just go down with them. Get away, rise above and win.

10. You are who you are and no one else. It is all in you. No one is better really. Be it.

Blogging For And About Keywords?

Search engine traffic on specific keywords is cool. There is a tendency for google to emphasize sites that play within the realm of their suggested key phrases. Great content is necessary also when the spider evaluates the site. Video content is important, and more specifically targeted sequencing of high quality content.

Getting keyword traffic will not help adsense if the keywords do not pay out well. Also many bloggers do well on seemingly irrelevant keywords. They may bring good traffic, but not much more.

Taking good domains out for the long term can improve key word success. For example if I have a domain and a blog that does well out of the box for 10 general keywords, and 8 specific I may lock it down for many years and this could tag on even more keywords and traffic.

Keywords always comes back to content. If what you do is somehow not conducive to the collection of information by search engines, your site may not have any keywords. But sites can still do well in aggregators, so do not take keywords too seriously.

But build great sites. Yes focus on one blog, but build many and experiment. Trial and error, and playing it by ear will improve your ability to nail important keywords, have more successful blogs, and ultimately make more money.

Building On A Dream

I want to be a movie star. I want to be this. I want to be that. These are common feelings that people have. Occasionally dreams happen. More often lifestyles are engineered. Commonly people are working jobs that they know in their heart will not deliver even a retirement. But we work for food, clothing, shelter, legitimacy, or whatever. But our dreams can still happen. Think about this:

The Blueprint For Gaining An Online Edge:

1. Get a video camera in a store or online.

2. Get some simple video editing software

3. Start making videos for youtube

4. Create a blogger blog

5. Set up social profiles

6. Learn skills through the web and follow interests

If most people follow a similar plan, over time they will gain access to their dreams. Sales funnels, social proof, or whatever it takes all can be gained from time, patience, experience, product quality, will, heart, dedication, and a positive attitude.

Find something that you are obsessed with. Odds are other people are too. This is a strong market for gaining traffic to videos and websites.

Find a market on a product or service that people really need. Use the essential route to leverage money in a well positioned online business.

Dream a dream and make it happen using the internet, social sites, video and blogging. Living the dream will make it happen sooner or later. Be patient, grow and do it.

Is Your Blog Notable?

Many people just try to win awards. But in reality a small amount of excellent blog content is worth much more than billions of pages of failed content. There is a reason that certain blogs draw people again and again.

Do not know where to start? Make a blog about yourself. Record your surroundings. Get comfortable in the blogging medium.

Then move into niche blogs suited to your interest. One great niche blog is worth more than a million failed ones.

Blogging is about quality and focus. Many bloggers say it can take years to really know how to knock one out of the park. Others say it is best to get everything right the first time.

Is it worth investing money into blogs? Yes and no. I love word press and specialized blogs, but the bells and whistles are not necessary. The medium is a tool and not the end all.

In the online web though blogs can bring hits to YouTube videos, or gain people twitter followers. Blogs brings all of the links together and drive traffic from search engines to the words and media. Blogs are magical in their own way. They are a world on their own. There has been a shift from blogging recently. But blog power is real and when we know it, we know zen.

It is all about now, here and what we have to say or offer.

Ideas Versus Presentation

The internet has contracted the value and use of time. People unless somehow signaled will not spend a whole lot of time doing anything. Before the intenet people used to dwell on different things in the media. Now they are always looking for ways to move on and out. Especially with things that are extremely popular online there is a tendency to look for what is next.

Presentation is a big draw. But not a long lasting money maker. Certain people on youtube for example draw people to their video. They have strong presentation and aestetics.

When the short term value runs out what do you give people? This is very important. What are your long term goals online? How will you sustain what you are doing online?

Leaving A Message On Someone Else's Blog, Message Board, Video, Etc...

A major aspect of online business is the volley of communication. It is a delicate dance between participating and being overbearing. We know we should probably be leaving messages below those videos, blog posts and other things in social media. But we must remember:

1. That our messages may be there a long time

2. Our ability to destroy our relationship with that person and others

Some of the most common communication between people on the internet includes:

A. Not leaving any message at all - This may not seem like a tool but it is really good. Basically we let our relationships develop with other people. If we are busy creating content why waste time leaving comments when our content is not up. Also why take the risk with many people that will basically reject our desire to connect.

B. A general greeting - A professional verson of the hi, hows it going can be a great opener. For the people who do not want to reply back kinda know that the greeting was really not meant to communicate. And for the others this may generate interest so they will come onto our soil and open up a dialogue.

C. A customized greeting - Customizing a greeting shows people that we the reader, or fan have taken the time to go through their content. This will increase the odds for interaction. It is important not to get over zealous and allow the relationship and connection to sink in. I am a firm believer that time is what grows the best connections and not going crazy in someone elses comment area.

D. An off center greeting - This is designed to get the person's attention. For example if you are trying to get a legendary blogger or youtuber to acknowlege you on a personal level then you need to do something to seperate your message from the thousand other messages that they get on a day to day basis. This is a fundemental life skill where you try to put yourself in their shoes. Really it is important to humor or amuse them in some way and show that you do not take things too seriously. If you are good at this skill they will always take the bait. If not than it may be a one in ten scenerio.

E. A smiley face - This is becomming increasingly common. People want their emotion and presence known but feel it is a bit over the top to try to communicate out of the gate. When doing this know your audience.

F. Tell us what kind of messages you leave other people.

To conclude, online communication is an important skill to learn and develop. If you build an audience and continually interact you are ahead of the game. Do not turn your business into anouther annoying product placement channel that will just get blocked by millions of annoyed people.


What Are You Really Doing With Your Opportunities

A negative attitude is common. Taxes are high. Everything is a scam. I can never make it as a blogger, or online video channel. It is impossible. It is uncool. Unfortunately these thoughts defeat the purpose of reality. Sure taxes are high, but there is a big break for education. So it may help to go to school for computer training which will help your online business. It may seem that getting into wordpress is a big overhead. But if it is audited as a business expense then you may get a tax break for that. Life is about these major actions that help improve your physical enterprise. For example it may help to stop getting advice from sources that you have been proven wrong. One thing is for sure that what the masses feel, tends to be a good opinion. For example a product on amazon that one hundred people rate 5 star is generally a pretty good product. Life is kind of like that. There are some simple internet business truths that we all kinda know, but till we apply to these universal laws we will never win. Go with the flow my friends and then life gets better. Fight the world how it is and then we fall to negativity, and futile thoughts. There are two roads they say and the positive attitude, open minded vibe is the best for internet business.

Dealing With External Powers

We all have the power to engineer a perfect life. To get the exact things we need online for instance. Food, water, and shelter...

But no matter who we are, the imposition of outside powers and forces often gives us a hard run to our goals. Sometimes it is best to avoid things and situations that are against us. Then we can convert our energy to where we can succeed and find social mobility and financial freedom.

Internet business is great for people who do not live in an economic rich area, or do not have serious time to start a physical business. The Internet can generate wealth and freedom.

Just be careful of the most common mistakes people make online:

1. Reputation - It is very common for people to feel anonymous online and forget that the world is watching. Let the stuff come your way and give people the freedom to interact. I am sick of getting emails along the line of 'check out my site,' or 'check out my videos.' 100% of the time I do not. And I know that these people generally produce a lower quality product that does not spread across the web too well. Be modest and let your content and positive generosity speak for itself. Do not come after people with the product you are selling.

2. Negativity - Online there are many people trying to bring you down. That is a simple fact. There are people who make huge incomes as trolls. It is easy to feel down when being psychologically harassed by these people. They may sometimes tell the truth. But just block them out and keep sending out the content. If it is too hard just quit.

3. Time - An Internet business like any other does take some time. It is easy to get caught up in those people who quickly succeed. That is generally not the norm. Time and learning are the key. Get a game plan. Set realistic goals like getting a hundred thousand views on YouTube or one hundred dollars a day with AdSense. Then do and learn from your mistakes and not what some other person tells you. And if you do not feel comfortable sacrificing your valuable time on the net quit right now.

4. Energy - People who work day in and out on the net get tired. It is easy to think that a sit down job would be easy. It is not. Most people who are successful online lead very imbalanced lives. Many bloggers have quit and made major career changes. Basically they said this is it. Imagine leaving a successful enterprise like that.

5. Realistic Goals - We all instinctively know what we can do. Unfortunately online it is easy to compare ourselves to others. This is a trap. Be yourself. Follow your interests wherever they may lead. Do not always just chase hype.

6. The Leg Work - If you want to do well producing content you may have to go out into the world with a camera. If you review products you will have to initially buy them. If you are into filming and street interviews you will need to cut a lot of film and produce well made videos. Online work can be physical.

There are many more things I want to say but please play to win. Be the best. Be ethical. Be good. You are a real champion.

What Does Desperation Really Mean

Many people who loose their jobs, or do not make as much money as they want on an online business often become desperate. This is only a natural feeling of percieved helplessness. In reality they just sacrificed their time into activities that are not as fruitful as we percieve them. In the internet business it is often the wrong ideas that get people into this corner. In the job market it is usually a heavy reliance on the job and hence the actions of other people. Our real power comes from ourselves to make truely independent decisions. It does not matter what other people tell you, even if that person makes 6 figures working a minute a year. It does not matter what family that person is from or their story. We all live our own lives. Take our own risk. And travel our own road. If we have an obstacle on our road, instead of getting mad at the obstacle it is better to take a different road and direction. Take yourself to the happiest time in your life and try to bring that feeling back. Because success is meaningless with happiness and a positive but real attitude. Keeping it real with our situation and facing our reality is key. It is important to not get caught up in what the tv or society tells us. We must all sail our own ship. Escaping impossible situations will make a hero out of anyone.

What Could You Be Doing Now To Solve Your Problems

Internet business is a part of life, but what about that other part. What void do you need filling? What are your real dreams honestly? What country do you want to live in? What impact do you want to make on humanity? What values do you hold? What are you really after? Is doing stuff a distraction from that real thing that you want? Because it is probably instantly obtainable if you want to do it. For example if you today want to lie on the beaches of mexico, leave right now. Do not try to save money. Do not make excuses. Life is short and in this moment you are at your true peak. If you satisfy that one urge, then the next, you will open up the world that you never thought was possible. Then your internet business will be just an amusing hobby that makes you money while the world spins around and people rush to the next thing. Life is a vacation if you make it that. Life is work if you make it that. Do not work too hard. And send me a post card.

Push Through The Negativity

In the online world people get negative to engage people. They hope their target stops what they are doing. This is a common thing people have to deal with online. Sometimes critique can help. Usually it is unfounded. Block these people and keep posting. Do not stop.
