In the news...

A new mentoing Program - that doesn't break the bank

In the news this month is John Thornhill's new 'Planetsms Digital Monthly Mentorship'
I've taken a look at this the sales page gives a lot of detail as to what John is doing
See it here
And frankly - I would recommend checking it out.

To have someone like John teaching and showing the exact strategies he actually uses to generate multiple streams of income alone is worth the $10 price tag.
He offers a money back guarantee, but goes one better with the rest of the benefits offered,

A big one for me is the chance to have him help members create their own products by following along with what he teaches, and then To Promote Their Products to his 28,000+ list.

This would surely give any marketer new or experienced a helpful boost to sales or even the turbo charged start to their list building. Establishing their own online business.

With question and answer sessions, personal help from John, and a host of other benefits.
I can't imagine anyone not getting excited enough to join.

The video newsletter I've seen outlined a particular strategy in such detail I doubt anyone wouldn't be able to set up an identical campaign... I think a few more experienced marketers will soon hear about it and be implementing it themselves.

The BIG news about this program compared to many others has to be the price though.
In fairness - the quality is second to none from what I've seen already ...

But to charge only $10 really must give every new and previously scammed, frustrated, challenged or otherwise not yet succeeding at making money online, marketer a real sense of hope.

It's not going to be long before you'll see many many people talking about this program.

If you'll take my advice - I'd go and get in now before John's having to turn people away.

A real newsworthy site in my opinion.
If you've tried and failed and been praying for a break ..... you've just been answered!
So get over there while it's still breaking news.

Virtual World Direct Announce a New Product.

Virtual World Direct have added a third Lottery syndicate system to their already popular UK Lotto and EuroMillions syndicate systems both of which greatly increase your chances of winning a prize. Now they have added the Spanish Monthly Superdraws to their portfolio.

The Spanish Lottery Superdraw has some of the richest prize pools in the world, ranging from €84 Million all the way up to a staggering €2.6 Billion. Millions of people take part in these draws every single month, giving them the chance to win life-changing prizes. Because of how the numbers are drawn, there is not just one incredibly lucky winner, but thousands of winners.

The VWD syndicate system guarantees every Spanish Superdraw syndicate will win at least one cash prize in the January ‘El NiƱo’, Christmas ‘El Gordo’ and Summer ‘San Ildefonso’ Special draws, and 3 cash prizes in the 9 other Superdraws.
Due to the nature of the Spanish Superdraws there are limited places available, as there are only a certain number of tickets for each draw. So if you want a guaranteed prize in one of the richest lotteries in the world I suggest that you join now to secure your place. For more information about the Spanish Superdraws and on how to join visit myespanoldraw and the get your guaranteed prize.

Do you, like me keep hearing that the money is in the list?

And it is certainly true that if you have your own list of subscribers / purchasers then they are more likely to spend money on what you have to offer. But what happens if you don’t have your own list? Well you can put up a website or a blog and get people to subscribe to your newsletters etc. and this is a must do if you want to be successful online. The downside to this is that it can take some to build up a substantial list. However there are programs available that you can join that already have a number of subscribers that you can then use as your list.

These programs offer many different ways of using them but essentially they all have one thing in common and that is you can email a certain number of subscribers at a set frequency depending on your own membership level.

I have listed here the ones that I have used for the past year or so with some success, there are others that I have tried but had no success with so I have not listed them.

List Bandit This gives you three lists and has both free and pro membership.
Listdotcom This list has over 100.000 subscribers and again has both free and pro membership.
List Joe Again this has both free and pro membership.
List Auction Another list builder that has worked well for me.

These are just four of the many list builders available, that I have used and have had success with, I hope that you do to.

Happy list building.

Making Money On The Internet

Making Money On The Internet

Today there are many ways to make money using the Internet, some are very elaborate while others are simple but they all have one thing in common they all need to be worked. Two of the easiest ways of making money on the internet are google adsense and affiliate marketing. Google adsense is where you allow Google to place ads on your website and you get paid whenever one of your site visitors clicks on an ad. Affiliate amrketing is where you sell someone elses product and get a commission on the sale. This is a good way to start if you do not have your own product. The down side to both of these is that you need to have a website up and running and then you need to get visitors to that website.

This morning I received an email from my good friend John Thornhill, which contain an offer that removes the first of those downside, the website. Basically they are giving away ready made websites, one per month. These sites are ready to go and are professionally designed, so that all you need to do is send traffic to them. Visit for more details.

How I reduced my electricity usage by 10% and didn’t really notice the changes.

How I reduced my electricity usage by 10% and didn’t really notice the changes.

Below I have listed some simple yet effective steps that have reduced by electricity usage from an average of 10 KwH to 9 KwH per day.

1. As my old style bulbs blew I replaced them with the new low energy equivalents.

2. Did I really need three electric clocks in the Kitchen one on the windowsill, one inbuilt in the cooker and one inbuilt in the Microwave. Answer no so the cooker and microwave get turned off completely when not in use.

3. Turning the lights off when leaving a room.

4. Completely turning off items that go into standby when not in use, e.g. the television, DVD player, the wireless modem etc.

5. Only boiling enough water for the amount of drinks I was making instead of filling the kettle up.

As you can see not a big list but an easy one to do, but with a significant result, which has offset the continual rise in electricity costs. The hardest part was getting started and rembering to do it,now it is second nature.

Taking Control of your Financial Situation

Now having spent some time looking into this subject while everyone has different ideas on which is the best vehicle to achieve financial independence (and they cannot agree on what that term means) they agree on two things 1 it starts with a state of mind and 2 you must pay yourself first.

What do they mean by a state of mind? Well it is making a conscious decision that you are in control of your financial situation and no one else. Now this may seem hard to accept when everything is falling down around you. But you and you alone are in control and responsible for your financial situation. This is not a lecture it is meant to show you that until now you were not aware of this. To give an example: you are in a well paid job and have spent and used credit to have a nice house a nice car or two and expensive holidays. Who made the decision to spend the money? Then you are told that your company is closing down and you are no longer required. Who has a care about your debts? Only you and those you owe.

The second point is much less emotive but can be much harder to action. Paying yourself first. This means taking 10% of your gross earnings and putting that into some form of investment, e.g. a savings account or stock and shares. Now a lot you will probably be thinking the same as I did when I first heard this idea “how the … I going to get 10% when I can’t even make ends meet now”. Well hopefully over time you will find some of the answers to that question in this blog, as I go through this process myself.

So here are some ideas to get you started.

1 Do you smoke? Now don’t panic I’m not on an anti-smoking campaign, but could you smoke one less a day?

2 Is that chocolate bar from the mobile sandwich van really necessary?

3 Only fill the kettle with enough water for the number of drinks you are making (or to cover the element)

4 got some spare space in your garden why not grow your own vegetables has some great ideas on this.
