Today I want to tell you about Zopim.com. This I believe could be an excellent service for bloggers and internet marketers as it gives you the opportunity to chat to visitors to your site in real time, turning you from just a blog to a real person.

In a brutal world where competition between companies and internet marketers has become a normal occurrence, it is imperative to prioritize and ration your time the best way you can.

Small and medium-sized businesses have an even more difficult task because they have to wear a lot of hats at the same time.

Offline Marketing With Fun Printables.

This idea has a lot of potential if done well, I think the idea is great for many types of websites but not sure how this will work for Internet Marketing niches but I know that some ingenious person could have a great idea that would work.

The main idea itself is a great one and I saw it being used on a post on the SmartPartyPlanning website. SmartPartyPlanning is a website dedicated to all things parties, it covers things like food, cakes and decorations for parties like birthday parties, St Patricks day and Valentine’s day etc....Read More

The Psychology of Affiliate Marketing

Today’s post is a short and sweet one from our friend Alex Whalley from Sydney Australia. Alex runs several successful affiliate campaigns and today he wants to talk about the mindset and psychology that is required to be successful at affiliate marketing. Ok so I am going to hand you over to Alex now…

The Number 1 Reason Why Your Affiliate Marketing Campaign Has Fallen Flat This article comes as a response to a resounding question that echoes across Online Marketing forums and Facebook Groups across the globe, and although there is no definitive answer to the question I am attempting to tackle here, I think if we remove all the variables and focus on one important factor then we can start to get an idea of what IS important...Read More

Your mind, your beliefs and the way you think can in fact have more of an effect on your success than you realise...Read More

The Importance of Having a Mastermind Group I first came across the idea of mastermind groups when I read the fantastic book ‘Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill. For those who do not know, with the help of Andrew Carnegie Napolean Hill was able to spend time with 500 of the wealthiest business men across the United States for around a 25 year period. He was studying what they did and interviewing them to find out what was the driving force behind their success and wealth. Everything he learned was published in the fantastic book Think and Grow Rich in 1937. By 1970, the time of Napolean Hill’s death, the book had sold 70 million copies worldwide...Read More

The State of The Nation. Time for A Tax Rebate? Today’s post is going to be a little different, I think it is time to have a moan, and why not? I am on the side of the little man as I am one of them. We are all good people doing what is expected of us by the Government. We give up our time to work and we get paid money in exchange for our time, but part of the deal is that we are then taxed, some of the money we earn for our time and labour is taken off us for those who cannot work. Or so we thought, it seems that a lot of the money does not go to those who are unable to work but those that choose not to...Read More

Creating A Blog Post In Word & Adding To WordPress.

I always write my posts in word for the simple fact it is easier, you can if you so wish write your post in WordPress itself in the editor window but I prefer to do it in Word as I can do it offline and see better how the post would look when published.

Don’t Spread Yourself Out Too Thinly. In this post I am going to discuss something that I think a lot of people are doing, which is harming their chances of success and that is spreading themselves too thinly. The reason I believe a lot of people are spreading themselves too thin is because I do it and I identify with it. As bloggers and internet marketers we are told to ‘be everywhere’ and this is a very important marketing fact. We do need to be everywhere, we need our names and websites to be seen regularly so we can be remembered and become recognisable. We need to be like Coca Cola or McDonalds, people tend to trust and buy from people and companies they know... Read More

How To Forward Gmail Emails To Your Main Email Account. Today’s post is going to be a short but possibly helpful post.

Ok so if you are like me, you probably have a lot of different Gmail accounts for different websites and projects. It is the nature of the Internet Marketing industry and blogging world. To go and check each and every one of these accounts can be time consuming and time is often the one thing we are short of. Especially if you write most of your own posts, eBooks and make things like videos... Read More

Struggling To Find Sites Willing To Publish Your Guest Posts?

(Please note for this post I use the term ‘guest posts a lot’, please read the bottom part about Google’s new stance on guest blogging and why you should change your pages terminology.)... Read More

Will Guest Posts Destroy Your Site?

Recently I read that Google was considering penalizing sites that used guest posts on a regular basis. This is a shame as it has become the latest big thing in SEO recently but that is mainly down to Google and their recent updates.

Google are trying to clean up the web and that means they are trying to penalise sites that have created unnatural and unethical links to shoot them up the Google rankings and to reward those that are using natural links... Read More

How To Make a Small Fortune With Tiny $7 Products There are many ways to make money online, it would take me ages to list them all, some are great and some are downright unethical. It is hard for me to say which side I swing when it comes to making money online. I love the freemium model where you give free information away that ultimately generates money from recommended affiliate commissions and advertising from your site so you are not actually selling anything but at the same time I understand the value of a product and understand that selling a product is after all the standard business model used in offline business...
