It’s Finally Here…

December 9, 2007

It’s finally here and, if you act now, you can join for half price!

Are there any online skills you lack but can’t afford to pay a professional to do?

Well, we have the solution for you.

Barter Genius!

Barter has been around since the beginning of time. Over 85% of Fortune 500 companies use barter and you can, too!

Just imagine being able to get the professional help you need without spending lots of money. So many new online business owners don’t have the money or skills to do everything they need to succeed. With Barter Genius you can trade your skills for the skills of others. Not only that, but if you want you can trade your skills for almost anything else imaginable (vacations, clothes, cars, hotel rooms…). You name it, it’s probably available to trade.

How exactly does this work?

Let’s say you have a blog. It’s badly in need of a redesign, but graphics is just not your thing. Your budget for the redesign is, well, non-existant. Do you have to just suffer along with your site’s pathetic look until you can save up enough to pay a graphic designer? Not if you’re a member of Barter Genius! You can log in to your account, offer your killer content creation services for hire and use the credits you receive from that to pay a great graphic designer to completely redo the look of your site, making you and your readers very happy. On top of that, the people who hired you are so thrilled with the content you created for them that you gain their loyal readership and the readership of their friends.

What about the graphic designer? She’s going to turn around and use the credits you paid her to hire someone to do some SEO for her, so that others can find her site (you only found her through Barter Genius, remember?).

Does this sound like a fairy tale? It can be a reality in your life. But you need to hurry and sign up now to get the discount price of $97/year. On January 1st the price will more than double (but it will still be a great value, considering what you get for your money).

So, what are you waiting for?

Visit the website and sign up now!

All the best,
George and Jill Manty

PS. If barter is not for you, don’t worry… we have some exciting new products planned to help you make BIG money online coming out in the near future. Sign up to be on the early waiting list, to keep up with our next secret project.

PPS. We will be announcing a contest very soon that coincides with the launch. Stay tuned for the contest details!

Internet Marketing Tips From Around The Web 12/7/2007

December 7, 2007

Here are a few really good articles that I read from around the net this week…

An Unjust Fear of Link Buying
Aaron Wall always writes such interesting posts. Anyway, this is a great article by Aaron. Don’t fear Google… you need to do what is necessary to get noticed.

Who clicks on ads? And what might this mean?
Nice write up on who is clicking on your ads. I had someone click on my ads at my house once who fell under this description (yes we did immediately contact Google to let them know). Generally, I have found that non-techie people click on Google ads because they don’t realize they are ads (like in the case of our friend). Anyway, this is a good read in case you were wondering who is clicking on your adsense ads.

SEO Nonsense – Sculpting PageRank Builds Muscle
Nice story on no-following internal links. I agree with this take on the use of no-follows.

Should You Take Part in Traffic Exchanges?
I agree with Chris. It’s the reason I just removed the Blog Rush widget from my blog. I am getting very little traffic from it and it takes up too much real estate on my navigation menu for such low amounts of traffic.

That’s it for now…

Introducing Monika Mundell As A New Co-Author

December 6, 2007

Monika Mundell of The Writer’s Manifesto has agreed to come on as a co-author. With Monika, Ryan and myself, we now have 3 authors on this blog and one more scheduled to join up in January. I really believe that the fresh perspectives each of us offer will be something that makes this blog even more valuable for you.

Please welcome Monica as a co-author and check out her blog. I am sure you will enjoy her writing.

One Final Secret Project Update Before Sunday

December 5, 2007

As I mentioned earlier we are launching our secret project on Sunday December 9th. The only other things I have to say about the launch is:

  1. We will open the doors Sunday December 9th at 12:00pm Texas time (central time for those of you not from the great state of Texas)

  2. It will be half price when we open the doors

  3. We will be launching a contest to coincide with the launch

That is all I can say for now.

Ok, one last thing (and this time I mean it)...

We don’t have an affiliate program. If you see someone else mention the site, it’s not because they are getting an affiliate check for it.

Free Blog Mastermind Lesson – Check It Out Soon Because…

December 4, 2007

Yaro Starak has announced that on Monday December 10th he is going to be closing the doors on the blog mastermind program for a while. In anticipation of this closure, he has released a free lesson from the program called “Marketing Through Conversations”. Marketing through conversation is something I have been focusing a lot of my attention on this year, and it has been extremely helpful. In fact, I believe it has been laying the groundwork for an extremely successful 2008. This free lesson is very valuable. You should click here to go check it out.

After you check it out, come back and let me know what you think of it?

December Goals – Strengths And Passions

December 2, 2007

I don’t know if I am going to start making a regular monthly post about my online business goals, but it might be a good idea. I was prompted do this by one of two mastermind groups I am currently involved with. So here are…

My December Goals

I have only one main business goal for December (and it is not launching the secret project). It is:

Decide The Direction To Take My Business In 2008

It’s a very simple goal, but very necessary. I may talk about that sometime in the future, but for now I just wanted to tell you the 3 quick steps I am going to take to reach my goal:

1. Determine my online strengths
I have already done this step.

2. Determine different ways I could make my strengths into a successful ebusiness
I have already done this step as well.

3. Decide which way to go

I have not completed this step yet. However, to make this third step happen I am going to:

  1. Make a list of pluses and minuses for each potential path
  2. Ask some of my close business friends for their advice
  3. Pray
  4. Choose one of the paths

It’s a fairly simple process in theory, but making a decision like this can be hard. Especially when the options that I have created are all appealing. All of the options are appealing, because every option allows me to focus on utilizing my strengths and passions.

Which is really the point of this post…

Build your online business around your strengths and your passions. Then it will be a lot easier to make money online MAKE BIG MONEY ONLINE.
