I have been an active member of this safelist since I started my network marketing adventure. List Joe has been a hot target of hackers because of its huge success. The owners had to shut down for few months and they went off the grid and it looked to be for good.

LIST JOE PARTNERED WITH TOP SAFELIST OWNERS!

Jonah, the owner of List Joe has partnered with the owners of other popular mailers called LIST ADVENTURE and BWEEEBLE.  These list builders and mailers are really responsive!  They are now relaunching ListJoe 3.0, a brand new look,   with some amazing new features.

No One Told Me About Blogging 5 thingns

Blogging is one way to increase your presence online. It helps you develop your expertise and your brand. A blog is a place to house your content which can then be used in multiple ways. (by Kerri Foster)

If you are serious about building a business online blogging is an essential tool.

As a new blogger, I’m struggling with some things I wasn’t told ahead of time. Some of them held me back and some things, like finding my voice is an ongoing process.

Here are 5 things no one told me about blogging.

1 Don’t Fear Competition

Crowds of bloggers
Bloggers around the world

With blogs and bloggers numbering in the millions, starting a blog is intimidating.

WPVirtuoso estimates there are over 152 million blogs! (Source: WPVirtuoso How Many Blogs Are on the Internet) The same article states that: ” a new blog is created somewhere in the world every half a second.”

Are you ready to run for the hills?

However, if you have something unique to say or a special expertise, or you’re especially good at interviewing experts, either one or both of these avenues might be right for you.

 

The important thing to remember is you are not competing with every single one of those blogs.

2 No Expertise? You Can be a Reporter

How to Steal Like and ArtistMany people online appreciate those who can report on what is going on in their niche. The sheer volume of content makes it impossible to be aware critical information they need to find success. Therefore, in the role of a reporter, you can create valuable content for your audience.

Google Search is your best friend in this role. Searching for articles, new, forums on the topic you report on will give you more material that you could ever use.

It’s not about copy that information, but rewriting it to suit your style, or repurposing the content. For example, you could take an article and make an infographic from the information.

This is a great way to build a large following, especially if you put your own unique slant and personality into your writing.

If you are worried about copyright issues doing this I recommend a book, How to Steal Like an Artist. It’s a short fun book to read and show why and how to steal like an artist.

3 Profitability Takes Time

Blog logoIf you plan to use your blog as your primary source of income then patience and persistence is a virtue.

I’d recommend you read a couple of blogs about blogging to help you understand the ins and outs of making money as a blogger.

Try: Copyblogger or Blogging Basics 101

You’ll need time to build a following and get subscribers, which is why it’s best to start blogging part-time while you do something else for income.

But if you find the right topic – and most importantly, you find your tribe – then it is possible to build up to a very decent 5 and even 6 figure income.
However, if there are other uses for a blog.

he reason I have a blog is to house my content to make distribution to my list easier and to extend my social media reach.

Either way as an internet marketer a blog is one of your best relationship building tools.

4 Find Your Voice

A Cat Finding it's VoiceFinding your blogging voice will take time, practice and action. With time your own voice will begin to manifest.

So why do you need to find your voice?

You don’t want to sound like everyone else, nor do you want to appeal to every person out there.

First, when you have your own unique voice, people have a reason to like you. You’re authentic, and you have something to say. Don’t be afraid to state your opinions and back them with facts. This will cause your tribe to gravitate to you as you build more and more rapport with them.

Second, if you try to appeal to everyone, you will appeal to no one.

Choose your perfect reader and then speak to this person.

For example, if your topic is motorcycles, you wouldn’t want to appeal to everyone who has a motorcycle, doesn’t have a motorcycle, likes motorcycles and even doesn’t like motorcycles.

But if you speak to the 55-year-old dentist who rides his Harley Davidson on weekends, then you’ve narrowed your niche to professionals on Harleys. And while this excludes most everyone else, it makes those professionals on Harleys much more likely to become loyal readers and listeners.

5 Become Well Connected

ConnectionsAs I suggested in point three reading other blogs about blogging is a good way to learn your art. You can also find other blogs in your niche to see what they write about. Commenting on articles you see and like helps build those connections. Don’t be afraid to reach out to other bloggers to ask questions.

As you become more connected your reach expands and so does your authority. You start to build that important equation of know like and trust.

Also follow bloggers on social media, Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms you like to use yourself.

While people blog for a multitude of reasons for an internet marketer blogging is an essential tool that makes growing your business easier overall.

Whether you want to use your blog simple to house and share content or to build your blog into your primary business income, you will be inspired, challenged and sometimes frustrated the process but you will never be bored.

What obstacles stand in your way of starting a blog?

Anthony Morrison Fan Page Business Profits

Everyone’s hot on Facebook Ads right now…

But in my experience (Anthony Morrison - download his free ebook here) , they’re technical, confusing, and hard to master even if you know what you’re doing…

And even if you sink a bunch of time and money into learning them, like I did.

Sure, you can always hire someone to manage ads for you…

But can you still make a profit after that expense? Most people can’t.

Organic reach wasn’t so bad for us… Until Facebook’s recent algorithm changes. 😕

What if I told you there was a way to get highly targeted traffic from Facebook, without spending any money on ads, and without worrying about algorithms?

For a limited time, I’m hosting a “Fan Page Domination” workshop, and you can register for free right here:

In this free training, I’m going to teach you the same system that netted me 7,356 email subscribers without spending a dime…

The same system that my student Kevin used to generate 37,000 email subscribers and build a Facebook community of 68,000 fans.

In fact, I’ve shared these tactics with my best students, and we’ve had 139 DOCUMENTED SUCCESS STORIES in just the last two weeks. Are you next?

Learn more and register for this free training by clicking here:

The facts are (like anything in life) there are a few catches that I will need to show you before you
just go blazing on Facebook.

  • How do you make your posts go viral?
  • What types of Facebook post generate the best results?
  • How do you make Facebook show your posts to all of your fans?
  • How do you properly setup your Optin and Thank You pages?
  • How do you place those Google Ads on your page so you can earn money?
  • How do you setup your Auto-Responder?

In this live training I walk step by step through the entire process building my own Fan Page
business right in front of you so you can easily duplicate what I am doing.

The real key here is to make sure you LEARN how to do this so you can duplicate it over and over
again because hey ….

There’s no limit to how many Fan Page Businesses you can start!


Here's the link to join the webinar again - Your webinar starts here

I hope later the webinar will be available in records.

FREE TRAFFIC FROM FACEBOOK – IT’S POSSIBLE!

So let’s start off first by saying that most FREE TRAFFIC sources are terrible and here’s why:

- Most FREE TRAFFIC sources are LOW QUALITY
- Most FREE TRAFFIC sources are NOT TARGETED
- Most FREE TRAFFIC sources TAKE FOREVER

Basically when people tell you they will show you how to get FREE TRAFFIC you should typically RUN the other direction because you’re likely wasting your time…

I’ve been the biggest proponent of the old saying “you get what you pay for” when it comes to
marketing online. I’ve never taught my students free traffic strategies because in the end I knew
it would never give them the results they truly needed in the time frame they wanted.

Let’s be honest as you read this book right now you wanted results yesterday.

You know it’s true…. And I am going to guess something else about you too…
If we’re being honest you’ve probably tried some of these “free traffic” methods and gotten no
results right?

Above you can see Anthony Morrison video recorded 1 year ago. He updated information in the webinar on 21 July 2018.

Directions on how to make a fortune from other’s people products

You Read That Right. Now Let's Get You Paid...

Why traditional marketers, salesmen, and network marketers are dropping everything to focus on affiliate marketing in 2018...(and before...)

To my most frustrated and overwhelmed friends,

I got a message yesterday that made me think of you...

It was from an old friend I coached years ago.

I’m happy to announce he’s doing extremely well right now with an Affiliate Marketing business that I helped him start.

(Actually, I kinda had to force him to take it - but I’ll get to that in a minute).

Seeing his letter made me happy - it was also frustrating...

Because you and I both know that the Internet should be a powerful way for ordinary folks to make money.

  • It should level the playing field.
  • It should be an escape hatch that protects you from layoffs, pay-cuts, and insulting wages.
  • Unfortunately, for the past three years…Things have changed in ways I never saw coming.
  • It’s harder than ever to make a penny online unless you’re a Super Affiliate like me.
  • There’s more competition than ever, in every market you can imagine.
  • Traffic is getting more expensive for everyone except those at the top.

There are no “David and Goliath” stories anymore. We “Goliaths” have the game completely rigged against you and it’s not fair.

I can’t ignore this problem any more.

As much as I love being able to push a few buttons and dump thousands of dollars into my bank account - I can’t sit by and watch this happen to the digital marketing community.

And, I think I can do something about it, but I’ll need your word you’ll do exactly as I say when the time comes.

As you continue reading this letter...

Ask yourself if you’re really willing to do ANYTHING to change your financial destiny.

Because you will need to take one big step that isn’t easy for anyone…

...If you want to unlock the ability to "print" money on demand like my top students do every day.

If you do, I promise to completely transform the way you create your financial income…Forever.

Sort out your everyday tasks, using Eisenhower matrix.

How to Focus on What’s Important, Not Just What’s Urgent

Time Management. (by Alice Boyes, see at the end of the post).

Do you get to the end of the day and feel that you’ve met your most pressing deadlines but haven’t accomplished anything that’s fundamentally important? You’re hardly alone. In a series of studies recently published in the Journal of Consumer Research, people typically chose to complete tasks that had very short deadlines attached to them, even in situations in which tasks with less pressing deadlines were just as easy and promised a bigger reward.

How to spot a ponzi scheme

7 Warning Signs When You’re Confronted With A Ponzi Scheme

Let's face it, in this day and age, we all look for quick fixes, short cuts, and ways to avoid exerting any extra effort. IF we can help it! Right? (this topic was written by Greg&Fiona internet entrepreneurs)

You operate electronic devices by remote control, order groceries online and get them delivered direct to your door, and use a mobile phone that has more time saving apps than you can shake a stick at.

Everything is quicker, faster, better – BUT . . . as a result we all become lazier, more expectant, and entitled.

Wouldn’t you agree?

That goes for earning an online income too!!!

Which is where the problem arises . . .

Greed, Impatience, Laziness

Online rogues, fraudsters, and scam artists take extreme advantage of the fact that millions of people are new to the internet and are mislead by greed, impatience and laziness! Seriously.

Fraudsters KNOW there’s a HUGE section of people online looking to get rich quick. And because advancements in technology make us lazier in this modern digital age, some people think lazily when it comes to earning an alternative income stream. Fraudsters PREY on that human greed factor.

Unsuspecting people mistakenly believe they can earn an income by doing little or no work!

That’s right – some people mistakenly think they can ‘get money’ by clicking on ad panels, or doing surveys, or doing online competitions!

As far as we’re concerned, such people are better off buying lotto tickets each week, or betting on the gee-gees, or the dogs.

The point is – and it’s an IMPORTANT POINT: earning a sustainable income online requires time, effort and energy. It requires investment, but it also requires knowledge, and a level of intelligence.

So, if you see a rabid proponent of some ‘get money’ scheme, or ‘get rich quick’ scheme, or ‘passive’ income stream requiring no prior training – put up our SCAM FILTER quick smart.

People promoting such schemes are blinded by gullibility, greed, and desperation. They mistakenly promote a Ponzi scheme as the ‘be all and end all’, because they desperately need it to work for themselves – because they’re driven by greed and fervour – which is an exceptionally UGLY side of human nature.

Don’t get sucked in by such people and such promotions, because, on the face of it, they APPEAR TO BE professional, convincing, and compelling!!!!

There’s a few such scams doing the rounds on Facebook lately (it was in 2015):

  • My Advertising Pays
  • Traffic Monsoon
  • Traffic Authority

So . . . if you see someone posting on Facebook, or emailing you screenshots that look something similar to the image below (WHICH WE COPIED FROM FACEBOOK – IT'S NOT OUR IMAGE), pay close attention to our 7 Warning Signs When You’re Confronted With A Ponzi Scheme:

traffic monsoon

But, first . . .

What Is A Ponzi Scheme Exactly?

Here’s what Wikipedia says:

what is a ponzi scheme

So a Ponzi scheme is one where you pay money in exchange for promised returns, which require no intelligence or training whatsoever to make – so it’s something any numptie can do. BUT, to maximise your so-called returns you need to recruit other gullible, greed based people, and encourage them to invest too so the pyramid is upheld.

Early investors may get their money back, but any so-called profits may not be paid out – so look out for people who claim to have their initial investment back.

AND . . . spare a thought for the late investors!

We've been gullible and greedy by investing in an identical online ad based scheme back in 2012 called Banners Broker where we ‘lost’ $6,000 – but worse still – we caused other innocent people to lose money too!

Banners Broker was supposedly an online advertising model and revenue sharing scam that takes each country by storm.

The scam works by you buying ads or ad banners to participate in a revenue share of the scheme, and all you have to do is click on ads to create ‘so called' traffic for others who have done like-wise (a trained monkey could do it!!!). It's basically a closed marketing system where people are marketing to other buyers in the scheme by clicking on each others ads.

Can you imagine how easy a sell that is – it sounds reputable, right?

NO – it's NOT. We’re speaking from first-hand experience and want to protect you from making the same mistake we did.

Just for the record, we helped those few people we introduced to Banners Broker to get their money back from their Bank when they paid by credit card – we had some success, but not in every instance. Paying by credit card definitely offered a layer of protection though.

We felt extraordinarily idiotic to have fallen for that traffic ad revenue sharing scam, knowing what we know now. Our intention in this post is simply to avoid others make the same mistake we made.

We only wish someone had alerted us to this type of scheme before we sunk money into it and it consumed us!!!

Our words in this post are HARSH simply to make you SIT UP AND PAY ATTENTION TO OUR ADVICE.

So – that’s why we’re sharing this information with you today.

Ponzi Scheme

7 Warning Signs When You’re Confronted With A Ponzi Scheme

[1] Scheme Founders Defend Themselves Saying It’s Not A Scam

This is a doozie. If you see videos made by the scheme founders pleadingly explaining why their scheme is not a scam – pay close attention to what they say, understand the reason why they had to make such video and why they have to use it in their promotion efforts, then run a mile!

Having to justify why something isn’t a scam ought to raise alarm bells in itself.

[2] Scheme Founders Explain Why People Have Problems Getting Cash Out

With schemes like Traffic Monsoon, you can click on fake ads till the cows come home, too build up a sizeable figure in your so-called profits, but can you withdraw the cash any time you choose??? Huh?

Most reputable online business models make payment transfers direct to your bank account (it's how we get paid for our online business), or, at worst, they post you a cheque.

If you’re sat watching a video justifying why it’s not straight forward to get your money out – run a mile.

You shouldn’t need to faff around with irreputtable third party payment processor companies like Payza and STP (can't remember exactly what the letters STP stand for – you'll know it when you see it) who take weeks to process your transfer plus take a 5-10% commission cut in the process!

Here's another interesting article on the small matter of the fake traffic, and of being paid:

Shocking: How Quickly Traffic Monsoon’s Money Pool Will Dry Up and Leave You Hanging to Dry. Warning! Do not Invest Until You Have Read This.

[3] You Open A Can Of Worms When You Do Your Due Diligence

Research the business model the scheme is touting. If the scheme is all about online advertising or online banner ads, then search Google and see what comes up.

Take an hour or two to do this.

Go down a myriad of rabbit holes.

Don’t just do one search and think you’re finished in 5 minutes.

BUT . . .  also BEWARE rogue affiliate who diss one system in order to lure people into their alternate honey-trap. It’s a very UNDERHAND way of marketing. So you need to “read between the lines” and understand the TRUE INTENT of the article (is it to accurately review the scheme the article is about, or is it to dupe readers into trusting the writer so they can be lured into the writer's preferred scheme?).

All we'll say is: do your due diligence properly – like really dig around – and if you still think it's really possible to make money for no work then only invest the amount you're prepared to lose – and certainly don't go making any plans of quitting your job!

[4] They Do Fundraiser Meetings

If you have to attend local Fundraiser Meetings to enlist your friends and family, then BE VERY WARY.

Getting to meet the CEO (Chief Extortionist Online) to get your questions answered is the PRIME WAY to build trust with people and get them to part with their hard-earned reddies! They’ll also be approachable on Facebook and on Skype to be there for EVERYONE – so as to widen the greed net.

Ponzi schemes NEED to hold fundraising events to CAPTURE more and more uninformed people in their net. They know  when people meet the Founder in person trust happens more quickly.

AND – they ‘open up' new countries and new territories when they know they've exhausted the current market.

In my Chartered Accounting days I (Fiona) worked on corporate fraud and financial investigations, I've investigated court appointed insolvencies and have worked alongside the Serious Fraud Office in the UK, so I've met many fraudsters – they all outwardly appear pleasant and plausible – but their intentions are very warped indeed.

[5] Founders Have A Track Record Of Failures

There’s a term in the fraud and financial investigations industry, known as The Phoenix Syndrome – so the phoenix rises up through the ashes of one failed scheme, leaving all the creditors and investors in the dust, only to start a new (similar) Ponzi scheme.

Fraudsters have no feeling or remorse for the people they've trodden on, or used, in order to line their own pockets.

If you see a long track record of failures – run a mile.

[6] Use Authority Sites To Suck People In

We recently saw one rabid proponent of Traffic Monsoon post images on Facebook depicting Traffic Monsoon have a good ranking on Alexa, which is a reputable benchmark website.

What you need to understand is Alexa ranking is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data from Alexa Toolbar users. This can easily be manipulated by having an army of insiders constantly switching their IP address and visiting the site.

Also Traffic Monsoon is in the business of fake traffic – so this kind of duping is easily achievable!

Run a mile.

[7] Proponents Are Rabid And Frequent In Their Passive Income Posts On Social Media (It’s Free Advertising)

traffic monsoon

To say this type of marketing is shallow and hollow, is just the beginning. It preys on the gullible and the greedy, so is actually QUITE DESPICABLE.

Unsuspecting people are busy being social on Facebook, snooping on what their friends are up to, watching cheeky videos of puppies, or whatever else is going viral. When they’re unwittingly confronted with a post offering easy passive money for no effort, possibly from someone they think is trustworthy – of course, it’ll push their buttons.

Just remember, that’s NOT the way to market a legitimate opportunity, experience, or system!

We only hope such Facebook users can sleep soundly at night in the knowledge innocent people will invest on the back of such greed based promotions.

JUST BEWARE, is all.

REMEMBER, there is NO silver bullet, get rich quick scheme, or big red button out there on the internet. BUT, there are genuine, legitimate business models which work like crazy WHEN you put in the effort, energy, and investment.

3. Remember to Use Keywords

KeywordsNinety-five percent of all purchases begin with someone searching for it on google.  However, if you properly Optimise your site by adding relevant keywords, you will be found more often by Google. This creates more sales and sign-ups. This will also increase your ranking and prove your trustworthiness and drive more organic traffic to your site.

Moz.com defines a keyword this way: Keywords are ideas and topics that define what your content is about.

As a blogger, I highly recommend Yoast as your go-to plugin for SEO.

4. Launch The Awesome Power Of Social Media Advertising.

Advertising on Social MediaSocial media ads turn viewers into paying customers. “Paid Social Ads ” promotes your content to your target audience. With Facebook ads, for instance, you can target by country, age,  and interests. This makes Facebook, and other media platforms, a powerful way to reach your ideal or target customer.

These ads can be tailored to fit any budget.

You can easily scale your advertising. As revenue grows so does the budget you have available to purchase even more advertising.

My advice is to stay slow, experiment with your graphics and your message.

Then as you learn what works and you gain more confidence you can start to take bigger risks.

You don’t have to be a marketing guru to take advantage of this form of advertising to showcase your content and style.

5. Use Valuable Content As Lead Magnets

Lead MagnetThis definition of a lead magnet is from Digital Marketer: 9 Lead Magnet Ideas

“Lead Magnet — noun — an irresistible bribe offering a specific chunk of value to a prospect in exchange for their contact information. The goal of the Lead Magnet is to maximize the number of targeted leads you are getting for an offer.”

Premium content offers ebooks and email courses produce 3 times the same number of leads as conventional “outbound” advertising… and it costs 62% less.

You’ve already created the content.

All you need to do is transform your work into a different media to create that high-value piece of content others are willing to give away their name and email for.

 

6. Include a Call to Action

Take actionLike most things in life, if we want something you need to ask.

Here’s a fact:  70% of businesses do not have a call to action on their homepage.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to have an opt-in form and a direct request to fill it out.

This works best if you have a free report to offer or something of value.

The best way to create a free report or lead magnet as it’s often called is to assemble something from your content marketing.

For instance, you might have a long article about creating a lead magnet. To help you, customers,s you create a short checksheet of your most important points and give that away as a free offer in return for thier name and email address.

It’s not necessary to create new content all the time. It’s important to learn how to reuse or repurpose all that content you create.

Remember all that creative work and time spend composing your content won’t do much good if it doesn’t call to your readers to take action.

7. Use Great Visual Elements

The purpose of using visuals in your content marketing relates to our growing need to quickly grasp or assess content. You need to grab attention quickly and graphics do that before your text has a chance to put in its hooks.

Visuals also help break up blocks of text which makes the text appear less intimidating to the reader.

The use of infographics is an excellent way to enhance your content marketing using a condensed mix of visuals and graphics.

In fact turning one of your longer pieces of content into a visual graphic is a great way to repurpose your content while giving you a great lead magnet to offer to potential subscribers or customers.

Summary

Content marketing is a critical part of growing your business, creating a brand identity and showing off your expertise so your subscribers and customer come to know like and trust you by the great and valuable content you create for them.

You may try to resist the need to be a content provider. You may claim you aren’t an artist.

But it’s long been established in our  new economy everyone is an artist:

Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art.

Don Miguel Ruiz

Now it’s your turn to take up the mantle of the artist in you.

Get into action. (Remember: call to action.)

Go out and create a new piece of content to enhance your business and marketing now.

From reading this article what would you suspect is your biggest challenge to calling forth the artist within you?

The Hidden Power of Forum Marketing.

One of the easiest ways to get people to know, like and trust you is
through the power of forum marketing.

Online forums exist in nearly every niche market imaginable, and are often
quite heavily trafficked. People are looking for answers, and forums can be
a great place to find them, in a free, non-threatening manner.

The easiest way to find relevant online forums is going to Google and
typing the type of niche you are interested in + discussion forum.

For example, if you search:

home business + discussion forum

You’ll find many discussion forums about home business. You could repeat
this search query for any industry or topic.

The basic idea here is to become someone who makes a useful contribution on
the forums, and eventually you’ll be viewed as a person of some
authority. This can happen faster than you might think.

Make some useful comment, direct people to valuable resources, and you’ll
quickly gain a few fans.

Make sure you set up your forum signature to reflect your site or squeeze
page. People can and do click these, particularly if you’ve been a
valuable asset on the forum.

Some of these forums have many thousands of members, and are growing as
more and more online marketers come onto the scene.

Forum marketing is an easy way to grab some highly-targeted, fast and free
traffic
to your pages. Don’t discount this one!
