Wipe Out Your Competitors With 3 'Be' Tips!

I had a passionate conversation with my cousin over this idea of "Internet Marketing". He asked as many questions as I can answer accordingly.

One significant question he asked is about how to compete with 'so many people and websites' in this business. This is the first time I'm ever asked such a question since I started out, so I did my best to answer...and my answer must have so impressed his father who overheard it that he said, "Yes yes, this is also exactly what I told my…

What Is Your Unique Selling Position?

One of the biggest issues any business would face is its unique position in the market. If you've not got a unique position, then you'll find that you've got nowhere to "stand out" of the crowd throughout your promotion.

USPs were originally defined around the 40s as a position a company took to make them stand out from their competitors and make the customers of said competitors switch to them. It works as an understandable and tangible reason for people to buy your product, over…

Understanding The Need For Change, The Impact Of Habits And The Foundation Of Principles

Do you recall the classic statement, "the only constant is change"? It is an ever-present phenomenon, and by comprehension at the level of man's intelligence, a tricky one, because change is in constant clash with timeless principles, which by evidence of established patterns, do not change.

The winner is the one who knows how to maintain and manage the balance between change and timed, principle-based progress on a daily basis, which all boils down to the little decision-making…

Understanding The Benefits And Advantages Of Using Autoresponders

If you've reached the point of exhaustion trying to keep up with answering the mountain of e-mails that threatens to bury you alive every single day, you're ready to learn about autoresponders.

The bad news is that people expect prompt replies to their e-mail inquiries. However, unless you can figure out how to work continual 24-hour shifts, or hire enough people to constantly monitor incoming e-mails (while they're eating up your revenue), you have a problem. The good news is an…

The Two Worlds Of Kobe Bryant

"To go from that legal type of setting to the basketball court in one day requires amazing concentration," Lakers forward Rick Fox said. "And Kobe is not only doing it, but he's growing as a player at the same time—if that's possible."

Back when Kobe was fighting against a charge of felony sexual assault in 2003, at the time of the report by Sports Illustrated, Kobe averaged 25.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.5 assists since the All-Stars break, each number pushing the limits of his…

The One And Only Secret To Ultimate Success

In English idiom, "2 left feet" refers to an inept dancer and generally, a clumsy person. Putting this meaning aside, I wish I had 2 left feet so that I don't have to worry whether to go left or right, so I'll just stick to left and let Life happens as it always does, and if I walk left long enough, maybe enough people will start to question, "Does this guy ever turn right?"

Regardless of what 'success' means to you, for everyone reading this, it is a plus, not a minus. Success is a…

The Missing Link Between Dreaming And Experience

What did Napoleon Hill say? "Whatever the mind of Man can conceive and believe, it can achieve." A biblical verse inspires young men to dream dreams and old men to see visions for almost 2000 years. Even a Buddhist saying is quoted, "If you want to know your past life, look into your present condition; if you want to know your future life, look at your present actions."

So what happened to your dream lately? If it's STILL a dream, something is amiss, right?

The Essence Of Affiliate Management

If you have a product that you want to sell, whether it's an e-book, audio or video, it's usually a very wise idea to create an affiliate program around it.

If you have an affiliate program for your product, you will get a ton of traffic that you would not normally have received.

The reason is because a lot of people will promote your product for you when you're paying them a commission to do it!

Would you rather have 100 people buy your product from you? Or would…

The 7 Effective Methods Of Getting Targeted Traffic

I never believe in buying traffic. How do you think visitors come to know me? Did they pay to know me? Most probably they subscribed because of a free download in the first place. You may not remember how but YOU are the traffic. You are targeted because I hit your hot button correctly :)

There are enough free resources out there on the Net to keep one busy with getting traffic, but here are the only 7 most effective methods: search engine optimization (SEO), link exchange,…

Pleasure & Pain, Ego & Fear

It's been proven when somebody makes a buying decision, they do so for one of two opposing reasons:

1) Pleasure or Ego: They want to move toward something. This is known as "chance of gain" positioning. Your product or service helps people further their pleasure, realize a passion, or take some action that makes them happy, e.g. a new car, a pair of skis, a book about being successful.

2) Pain or Fear: They want to move away from something. This is known as "fear of loss"…

Major Traffic Source Of The Future (Actually Now): Blogs

If you view web pages as the original publishing platform since the Big Bang of the World Wide Web, surely this variant platform called 'blog' and its increasing popularity heralds another mode of information publishing and communication. Maybe 10 years down the road another new platform is born ('wiki' is the latest). For now, 'blog' is in the spotlight.

The blog shares some similarities with the web page as well as being the anti-thesis to the newsletter. It has its own URL so it…
