Another Business Oppportunity To Make Money Online With Local Businesses

October 18, 2009

As you know, Jill and I started a houston web marketing and design company that helps local businesses make money online. Well, Jeff Walker just released a cool video about a new training course he is going to launch that teaches local businesses how to make a ton of money with product launches. This sounds like a great business opportunity.

I am personally very interested in the course because I think it would be a great service to offer to local businesses. It fits really well with our current business. If the price is reasonable then it will be hard for us not to invest in the training.

Anyway, Jeff is giving away some good free information in his videos about the course, so I recommend you click here to check it out.

Local Business Money Machine Review – Opening its Doors Again

September 15, 2009

Hi, this is Jill, George’s wife. For a bit of a change of pace, I’m going to offer the update on our experience with Local Business Money Machine.

We started with the program in June. As you know, George has been involved with internet marketing for quite some time. In spite of his grasp on the subject and the success of this blog, we’ve never found that one thing that works best for us as far as actually making money. So, after George was laid off, we came across Local Business Money Machine and thought it seemed like an excellent opportunity. And it has been. The program has opened twice now— once when we joined and again about 6 weeks later. Now, they’re opening their doors once again.

Let me start by saying we have made back every penny we’ve put into the program. We haven’t yet replaced George’s full time salary, but I think it’s realistic to expect that we’ll be able to do that by early next year, if not earlier. The program does talk about making a full time salary in three months, but I think that’s pretty aggressive.

First, it depends on what you consider full time. After 20 years of George working as a software programmer and with six children, our idea of a “full time” salary is most likely a bit higher than someone in their twenties. Second, I think it does depend somewhat on your existing business network. To get those first clients, it’s nice if you already have some inroads. The program provides lots of information on finding your first clients, but our experience has been that some of those take a bit longer. We’ve got some seeds we’ve been watering since July that we expect to finally bloom in the next couple of weeks. We started with practically no useful local business contacts, so we had to start from ground zero in that regard. Even under those circumstances, we’re in a good place for a three month old business.

As George wrote in his first post on this topic, we’re not sure about how effective this program would be for the absolute novice. I think there’s enough information there for a complete newbie, but I think it might take a bit longer to implement. However, the information provided is very clear and comprehensive. My college degree is in theater and, other than being married to George and listening to him talk, I don’t really have a technical background. The material in Local Business Money Machine has been very accessible to me. I’ve had no problems following the content and even communicating it to others.

There is a LOT of material in the program. You’d probably need about two weeks of consistent time set aside listening to the trainings to get started (a couple of hours a day, I’d say). And then you’ll need weekly time set aside to listen to the ongoing trainings, visit the forums, etc. But there’s no program out there that is going to give you a full time income just for purchasing it (run away from any that promise that). Local Business Money Machine will train YOU to be a money making machine, but it’s not going to do the work for you. It provides solid principles for getting started in a real business offering traffic services to local businesses. But it’s up to you to implement the training.

So, in summary, if the recent economy has you thinking about starting a new business full time or adding to your income by working part-time, and you enjoy this blog and learning about internet marketing, I think the Local Business Money Machine is a great blueprint for getting started in a business that is interesting, absolutely needed by local businesses and only going to grow in the future. There is a money back guarantee, so if you get it and decide it’s just not for you, you’re not stuck. If you do decide to get it and then return it, email George and let him know why. We’d be interested in knowing who the program DOESN’T work for, as we already have a good idea who it DOES work for.

If you buy the program, we’d like to help you use the program successfully. We’re offering you a Quick Start Blueprint— the parts of the program that we felt were the most critical for getting started, including our most successful networking tips and the tools (both paid and free) that we’ve found the most useful. And when you finish those trainings and have had a chance to get your feet wet, we’ll give you a 60 minute phone consultation at the end of your first month where you can ask any questions you may have.

One last thing, when you sign up for the program you’ll have the opportunity to add on a 4-Pack. We highly recommend it. The Million Dollar Presentation, alone, is worth the cost. As the networking/sales member of our team, I have used it several times, and it always wows people. I used it to do a 20 minute presentation at our local Chamber of Commerce, and the next day at another networking event, I had people who weren’t even at the presentation tell me that they’d heard it was great from other people at the Chamber. It really set us apart as a business that knew what we were talking about.

Thanks for reading. We’re really excited about our future with the program, and we’re very thankful for the opportunity it has given us. Go watch the free videos about the program and decide if it’s the right opportunity for you.

To get our bonus for the Local Business Money Machine follow the steps below:

1. Click here on our affiliate link and sign up for the program (before it closes).
2. Email your receipt for the program to us at info @ with the subject line “Make Money Online Blueprint”.

4. After you have been in the program for 30 days and are ready to ask us questions, set up your free phone consultation.

How To Make A Living Online By Helping Local Business Owners

June 25, 2009

Recently, my wife Jill and I started a new business that helps local businesses make more money by properly marketing their websites on the Internet. The new business has gone extremely well. We have picked up 4 clients in the first 2 weeks and we have several other very strong leads. It has been VERY COOL!

I am not sure if we could have done it this quickly without the help of a training system that we discovered when it was first released. It is called the Local Business Money Machine and the system is absolutely amazing. The training reveals how to get ideal clients quickly, how to make winning proposals to those clients, how to run your business, and how to market your client’s local businesses on the web.

Going into the training I already knew a TON about online marketing, however there are some cool things I have learned about marketing local businesses on the Internet that I wasn’t aware of prior to the training. For me the really valuable part of the training has been the “getting clients” part of the program. The system for getting clients is well suited for my wife Jill, so she has been taking care of most of the client acquisition (sales) process, whereas I have been doing the online marketing and project management part of the business. It works great for us.

Who is this program for?

I think this program is best suited for those who have been doing some online marketing and/or have some experience getting clients but have not found that perfect system for running a successful business. People who are complete newbies (less than 6 months trying to make money online) are going to find the learning curve a bit more difficult and will need to take things slower than we are. You can still use this system if you are complete newbie, but it is going to take a lot more time than those who have some general Internet marketing knowledge. The good thing is that you can do the training at your own pace and the training is very well organized.

To see a free webinar that teaches the basics of what we are doing click here.

Today the program goes live again. I am not sure how many people they are taking this time. Last time it was 100. You can see the page to sign up for the program by clicking here.

If you do join the program using the link above, then let me know and I will keep in touch with you to help you out with the program and to potentially partner with you on some projects.

Cool Tool to Make Professional Videos in 10 Minutes

June 14, 2009

I’ve received some comments and questions about the video on our new website promotion and design site. My wife created the whole video in less than 15 minutes using an awesome membership software called Animoto.

Here are the steps she used:

1. Come up with a sales message.
2. Sign up for Animoto. (Sign up for their 90 day trial if you only want to make one video, but for most of us the year long membership is probably the better deal.)
3. Go buy a few pictures from istockphoto. The small size pictures are fine, so plan to spend about $1 per picture. (Animoto does offer some free pictures for your use, but we wanted to find pictures that were exactly what we wanted.)
4. Put text and pictures in order using Animoto’s easy interface.
5. Let Animoto do the work of making your video look like it was created by a Pro.
6. Remix if you want to see other possibilities.
7. Use Animoto’s easy tool to post the video to YouTube, your blog, your website— wherever you need to impress people and get their attention.

Animoto is so easy, my 10 year old son used it to make a couple of funny videos.

The first he made using pictures of our fence damage from Hurricane Ike:

In the second one he used some of the free photos from animoto:

Can you tell he has learned something about marketing already?

If you sign up for Animoto through my affiliate link, I’ll answer three questions about Animoto through email if you have any trouble with it. Frankly, I don’t think you will since it’s so easy to use.

Can You Make Money Online from Twitter?

June 4, 2009

If you aren’t on Twitter yet then you are one of the few people who aren’t, and if you have never heard of Twitter then you must have been living in a jungle cave for the past year or two. Every internet marketer I know is on Twitter and it seems like that’s all any of them can talk about these days. But does anyone actually make money from Twitter? Have you?

I have been on Twitter for a while now and I have yet to see how you can really make money from it even though everyone keeps talking about how great it is for business. Don’t go thinking I am some newbie that doesn’t know anything either because I definitely am not. I have been an internet marketer successfully making money online for over 6 years.

Sure, I’ve heard a few stories here and there of people who have used certain methods to make money on Twitter, but they are few and far between. And even those “success stories” are usually only small sums of money. Plus, when you consider the excessive amounts of time most people spend on Twitter to make that little bit of money, you could utilize several other marketing techniques to achieve better results in the same amount of time.

Then there’s the argument you will hear from the Twitter faithful about how great it is for traffic. Is it really? Not if you really think about it…

Say you have 1000 followers and you “tweet” your newest blog post in hopes that your followers will go check it out. Chances are most of them won’t be on Twitter at the time you tweet it so hardly any of them will see your tweet anyway. However, let’s be really conservative and say half of them are on, so 500 might see it.

Now, most of the remaining 500 are probably following hundreds, if not thousands, of other people, so your tweet will most likely be pushed down almost instantly and very few of them will see it. But let’s be really conservative again and say half of them do see your tweet. We are down to 250 now.

This could go on and on but let’s estimate highly again and say that 10% of the remaining 250 actually do click the link to go to your blog post. You just go a whopping 25 visitors! And probably none of them will actually be targeted visitors that will do anything to actually make you money once they are at your blog.

However, I am feeling generous so let’s say you have Adsense displayed on your blog and normally get a 5% click through rate. Well, 5% of 25 is 1.25 – so you would get just one click. If you’re lucky, you might make 10 cents or so. In reality you probably wouldn’t make anything though because “social traffic” rarely clicks on ads, and traffic from Twitter is considered social traffic.

So, can you make money from Twitter? I doubt it! And even if you do there’s a strong chance you could have made a lot more by using other internet marketing techniques instead.

If you don’t want to take my word for it then give it a try and see how it works for you. If you do figure out how to make money on Twitter then I would love to hear how. Just don’t waste too much of your time trying!

Let me end by stating that I am not saying you shouldn’t use Twitter. I get on there almost every day so that would be very hypocritical of me. It does have some advantages and there are several tools you can use to automate it so you don’t waste all your time there.

The point I am trying to get across is that you shouldn’t be spending too much time on Twitter because it’s really not very productive for your business. There are many other ways to make money that are much better than Twitter and several marketing methods that will bring you a lot more traffic.

By the way, since we’re on the subject of Twitter… You can follow me @trentab to get real tips on how to make money online.

Interview With Buzz Marketing Superstar Dean Hunt

June 3, 2009

Greetings everyone. Today I’m interviewing Dean Hunt of Dean is best known as a buzz marketing genius and blogger extraordinaire.

Hi Dean. First, thanks for doing this interview.

Q. A lot of people when at the age you started were still in school or trying to figure out what they’re going to be when they grow up. How did someone so young become so successful so quickly?

A. That is the cool thing about the Internet, it doesn’t discriminate based on age. So anyone at any age can do it. I was around 20 before I got into it properly… I was 22 before I was making a fulltime income, so like most overnight success stories, there is a lot of effort and time that goes into them.

Q. So, for those who don’t know— what exactly IS buzz marketing? Is it just the internet marketing equivalent of being a shock jock?

A. Shock is just one small aspect of it… basically, it is doing something that gets people’s attention. The easiest way to do this is to make them feel an emotion… so, it may be inspiration, funny, shock, sadness, joy, hope etc…

I actually call it “outrageous marketing”.

I tend to use humour a lot.

When you grab attention, people talk about it, and that is when your message goes viral.

Q. Is there a limit to the boundaries you can push with buzz marketing? Is there anything you WON’T say?

A. I write as though I am my audience… if I find it funny, I publish, if I don’t find it offensive, I publish… etc…

My boundaries are more liberal than some people’s, but you can NEVER please everyone, and if you try, you will become very generic and dull.

Remember, it is better that 50% of people hate you and 50% love you, than 100% think you are ok.

Q. I recently saw a video you had published on your Facebook page where you referred to yourself as someone who has, at times, given up too early on sites? What’s one site you wish you had stuck with?

A. It is more of a case of giving up on ideas… my first ever big idea was to have a cup of coffee with 1000 strangers… I called the site “Fancy a Brew?” brew meaning tea or hot beverage in the UK.

It got a lot of attention, but I gave up after just 2 drinks… the ideas and potential excite me a LOT more than the details and the journey of actually doing it.

Q. Speaking of social networking, do you think it’s possible for business owners to have a real internet presence without it?

A. Yes, but social networking is a good option for people without a budget.

For example, if you have a team of 10 staff and a 6-figure marketing budget, do you NEED social networking? NO, but regardless, I think it helps… it is the grease that makes things happen faster.

My golden rule though, is that some people just don’t get it, or are not the right personality types to enjoy and excel in the social game… if that is you, do not fight it, focus on your strengths.

For everyone else, focus on the big 4: LinkedIN, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube

Q. Is there any ONE thing that everyone trying to increase the amount of money they’re generating online should be doing?

A. Testing. Success online can be summarized by the following: test things to see if they make you money, if they don’t, then tweak or stop doing them, if they do, do more of it.

Q. What is one thing you’ve had to change radically about how you view marketing over the years and what is one thing you think will always remain constant?

A. Consumers are more aware than ever before… they know about sales pages, they know about testimonials, one time offers etc… so you have to be more authentic.

The constant is that people who can get attention and stand out from the crowd will be successful. That is why buzz marketing will always be around.

Q. Tell us about your affiliation with ConstructZero ( What’s this I hear about your life being sponsored?

A. My life was sponsored by for $1 million, most of which I will be giving to charity. It means I will wear their URL and logo on an item of clothing, at events, on video, in photos etc…

It leverages my personal brand.

They are doing some really exciting and potentially world changing things at, so I recommend you go check them out.

Q. What does a website have to do to earn a “doesn’t suck” button ( from Dean Hunt?

It has to not suck ūüėČ

Just email me your website url with the subject line “does my website suck?” to and I will let you know.

Q. One last question— if you were to give up making money online tomorrow, what would you want to do instead?

A. Great question… I would probably consult with local, offline businesses. That or I would become a rockstar (I wish).

In reality I would probably just play Xbox360 all day, and keep posting at and purely for fun.

The answer to the last question made me laugh because it’s exactly what what my wife and I are doing with our new business. Anyway, I really enjoyed interviewing Dean and I recommend you go check out his blog by clicking here.
