Bad Habits don’t make money or even help you succeed in life.
Even if you work as hard as you can…there is always thatStop Signhanging over you and what ever you try to do.
More on its way.
Hold your breathe. Or watch and listen to something different .
Still working on getting rid of Procrastination, but have a new Habit:
Just Do it, even if it isn’t Perfect.
Yep, if you type out or click on this link Cararta.com/likes/Simple and go, it is my affiliate link to a program that is helping me stop wishing and start doing. Be warned, if you go and buy, I get paid! And you get lucky! ~Cararta…
Here is part of what he said explaining about how he used the PLR.
When I was starting out, I was working harder than anyone else I knew. I had a full time job working in a car plant. I had a wife and two little kids (I actually still have those, thank God), I had a mortgage and a dozen different bills that always seemed to need paying. So like I’m sure you did as well, I sat down in front of my computer for hours every night and tried to earn some extra money.
I read sales page after sales page and bought product after product.
I did my research and tried to follow the directions I was given to the T.
Laughable and it was all because of the tired old advice that no longer cut it.
But still, I kept at it.
I kept tearing my brain apart with project after project, but I couldn’t sell a thing.
I was literally burning the midnight oil, but despite every ounce of work I put in, I couldn’t make a sale and I couldn’t make a profit.
Heck, I could barely even get anyone to visit my website.
I was at my wit’s end. I was reaching the bottom of my barrel.
I was close to quitting.
I went for broke and decided to ignore all the ‘expert’ advice I’d been given and just do my own thing.
I closed my eyes and wiped from my memory every piece of bad advice that I’d ever come across.
And then I went to work. And then something spectacularly unexpected happened …
I Started making Money
Sure, it was small fry at first compared to some of the big guns, but I was buzzing.
I was like one of those cartoon characters rubbing my eyes to make sure I was seeing the screen right.
But I was.
My online account had more money in it than the day before.
And the next day.
The same thing happened.
I finally found something that worked and boy did it feel good.
So I branched out and built on what I had learned.
And the money kept pouring in, this was way back in 2004 and since then I have never stopped.
However, even though I had a formula for success I never stopped working at it.
I kept building on what I had discovered.
Here are some recent screenshots from some of my many ClickBank accounts.(click to view).
I have many many more accounts that provide similar results.
But that is not the point. The point is that you can use this program John Thornhill has put together to learn how you can soon have multiple accounts like his at Clickbank. Now not saying everyone will do this. Nope, experience has shown that many just want a click and paste one or two things and think they are done.
Not the way it works, but this method does cut out a lot of work and allow you to use already created material to hop skip you ahead.
Using Video Tutorials for PLR Product Creation can Become Addicting.
Even more addicting is watching an expert showing you how to record a video tutorial to create content for a PLR Product, live and unedited on a training webinar. Liz Tomey explained that she was “Behind the Eight Ball”…needing to work on a PLR Product Creation for a client, but also needed to use the same time to hold her weekly Question and Answer session for us, her devoted coaching students!
Down to the nitty gritty…
Liz is an exciting and inspiring teacher.
On our most recent weekly Q&A webinar, we got a bonus. Before she started recording a video tutorial for Day 2 of the product she is working on, she went through the necessary set up steps.
Step 1. Create a Video Title, sub title and thumbnail that will show on the video that will be most of the content for Day 2 of the product .
Step 2. We watched as she used her graphics editor to make a slide and then save it in the Day 2 file where the different parts of the content will be stored.
This is the initial step to creating a Video tutorial to illustrate what you need to learn and should be doing on Day 2 of this program.
Then she remarked that we as product creators and marketers should be doing this Day 2 process every day to establish that Branding, Know, Like and Trust that we need as product creators PLR or otherwise.
When not behind the eight ball, she normally creates a script, prints it out and reads as she records the video.
As an alternative she found a convenient way to create a script, by using Google Docs to store a script she created live in word with us watching.
She got inventive, instead of printing it out as usual she made a change.
Without fanfare, she posted her Day 2 video title, subtitle and image on her screen and began recording the product’s Day 2 tutorial.
So in addition to her laptop Liz Tomey with phone in hand, went to Google Docs, retrieved and read her script using her phone because she was working outside and didn’t want to have a time break in our Question and Answer Webinar .
Our Webinar replay will include the part she created for Day 2 of the PLR product (which will be cut out later and filed in the product) and also gave us a live “Watching over her Shoulder” as she was creating a video to be used for the HOW TO Do It for Day 2 of the product .
As she explained later, Content can be used any way you wish, especially if it is content that YOU create!
In this instance, Liz taught us how to do a short tutorial video,
illustrating what the future product owner will be learning.
On this live webinar she went to Social Media sites with REAL people hanging out so that we and the future product owner could learn how to contact and learn from people in your niche.
Then after completing the tutorial, she listed different ways on how to use the content created.
If you aren’t a Liz Tomey student then you are missing out!
I managed to get through this without revealing what the PLR Product that is being created is all about! Hard to do when you are a blabber mouth!
Other than the bonus training , Marketing is part of what is being taught! It is very hard to get compensated for your work unless you learn a few things about marketing and selling!
If you are intrigued then you might be interested in reading more about what Liz Tomey is teaching us in our weekly coaching webinars.
The floor is always open so you can either send questions to support before the webinar or just type it in chat or raise your hand and ask!
Haven’t seen or heard anything yet that is not answered!
Or if she doesn’t have an answer, keeps asking you questions until she finds out what you really need help with. Or if to far out there a lot of smart people in our class, our group or on the webinars who aren’t shy about sharing and helping others.
Run into a snag and need a helping hand? Just ask… Plus if you share Liz’s offers around as a JV you can earn some cash for your efforts.
Don’t get me wrong, if you aren’t progressing you will get some
Wondering about those Blogs that start up and run to the Top in record speed?
Not there yesterday, but at the top of the Heap today?
I clicked on a link to my site Cararta Make WordPress Money in the awstats…just to see what was linking…and found this post on one of the pages…was so impressed, I decided to share part of the post. Here is what Oluwaseun Babajide had to say about what should be on a blog and your goals in creating a blog. Well the page disappeared on that site so here is another one to read 5 things to use on a blog which isn’t quite as interesting.
Glad I have the excerpt below..to me is much more interesting and directed at what you can really do!
Why Bloggers Should Start Working Smart and Not Hard
I am going to share this secret with anyone who is interested in doing what they love (blogging) and deriving a sense of fulfillment and making some money while they are at it.
The secret is…wait for it……… KNOWING HOW TO ADD VALUE to your readers; and ensuring that you do not spend your valuable time on things that would not do the following:
* Generate better webpage traffic
* Bring recognition to your blog
* Generate income
* Provide you with some experience
You need to work smart; which means cutting straight to the chase and taking part in activities that will help build your brand.
Okay, I’ll be very honest here, a lot of people just don’t go to work in order to get a paycheck, they want to add value to their company – that is their main goal! Such employees usually standout from other employees in the company and are recognized (and often valued) by the boss. So being a successful blogger will require you to add value to your readers and to balance that with ensuring that your blog grows to becoming a lean mean money making machine.
Here are valuable tips to help you work smarter and not just working harder:
* You should make sure that you select 2 social media platforms to focus on. You will need to ensure that you figure out just where your target audiences hangout so you can reach them. Many people use facebook and some people simply prefer to use Twitter; Pinterest is also gaining a lot of popularity among women. If you blog about fashion, beauty, health, weight loss, or food – using Pinterest may be the best way to reach your target readers. For those who blog about weight loss, using before and after images of people who lost weight using a particular weight loss program, device or product would go a long way to get you new readers.
* If you notice that your readers prefer Facebook, and you also love the communication settings of this social media site due to its photo richness and more personable features, then simply choose to reach your target audiences on FB.
* Twitter is the best place to reach your readers if they prefer brief and direct communication.
* If you can afford it, seek out the services of search engine optimization experts. Seriously, SEO service providers would not charge you an arm or leg. But if you know a little bit about SEO, you can implement search engine optimization services that work.
Which Choices to Make: Will it be Facebook, Twitter or Something Else?
Most of his suggestions made sense to me, some more than others. Since we are now in the boat of having to NOT depend on just SEO and Google for our traffic and must decide on our Social Media choices to grant us that almighty traffic, it means choosing and using.
According to what I have read here and there, even the old standby blogging and commenting on others blogs, when links are allowed isn’t giving the “link juice” or counting for much.
Have observed that there is a growth in almost MLM type groups forming to create their own mini traffic “memberships” (don’t know what else to call them) to guarantee members traffic from each other…
Maybe they are volunteer rather than paid link farms? What will they look like to Google and the other search engines..One big authority site with dozens of niche sites supporting and linking in and around and to each other?
Guess it is time to step back and take a look at where you are, what you want and find out how to do it!
Curation works according to Matt at Google if you go and watch some of the Q&A videos…but only if done correctly.
Linking works, but only if links are from relevant sites that can provide more information similar to your but doesn’t duplicate your content.
What is the best technique?
Blogging and commenting
Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, (three favorites)
So many choices, but Oluwaseun finished off with something I found interesting, He is of the opinion that a blog needs new content every day…which is an almost insurmountable obstacle for someone working alone, unless they invest in and use some type of content automation.
How does your plan for your blog compare to what is described above? Are you doing a better job with ranking and traffic today than you did six months ago?
