Blogging for the fun of it

Blog for fun and profit

Blogging for the fun of it!

When attempting to get into “blogging”, it helps if you can have fun as well when you do it. Sure one can just do a google research and just blog about it, but if it’s not a subject that you’re really interested in as well as “having fun” along the way… chances are that that particular activity will be short lived. Why? Because there’s no “Passion” in it! When you blog with passion… ie. blogging about something your passionate about that means your having “fun” as well, which means you will never loose interest in it.

Take my case for example… I stumbled online by accident back in 2004 out of necessity, I had to find additional income to support my growing family. Worst still, I was a “renter” back then, no money, and living on junior chef’s wages. Times were hard back then, really hard. Anyhow, as I learned the “online marketing” game and starting making my additional income, I starting loosing interest in it. There were times which I never got on to my computer for months on end, I lost my motivation, I almost stop my blogging altogether. Why? do you ask? Well, I now believe that it was because I didn’t have “passion” in it, I did it because I had to. And as time went on… I kind of lost interest in it. So how come I’m still around I hear you asking!?

Well… it’s because I re-read Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad book and I’ve finally figured a way for me to combine my necessity of making extra income (work online) and using my passion (cheffing) something I’ve been doing since I was 16 so it’s my Passion! By the way…. those of you interested in “cheffing” can look me up on facebook @CheffingtonPost. And for those of you that are stuck chasing your tail to make ends meet, I highly suggest you grab a copy of Robert’s book, It’s changed many peoples lives… mine included, and I’ve know doubt it’ll change your for the better as well!

I” give this post more attention later on…. family first for now, adios amigos! šŸ™‚

The New Wave In Social Media Its NOT Facebook

Tsu.co/workwithsimon

There’s a New Wave in Social Media… and It’s NOT Facebook!

There’s a New social network called Tsu.coĀ  which launched with little fanfare on October 14. The social network has had a cash injection of $7 million from Sancus Capital PriveĀ and other smaller private investors before launch.

Tsu.co/workwithsimon

The company wasĀ founded in 2013 by tech entrepreneurs Sebastian Sobczak, Drew Ginsburg, Jonathan Lewin and Thibault Boullenger.

Tsu.co differentiates itself from Facebook and newcomer Ello because it aims to reward its users with royalties. It displays ads and promises to pay its users for contributing and sharing original content.

It also is not precious about who joins its network. If you have a short code, you can join. If you know someone elseā€™s short code (mine is workwithsimon) you can create your own account on the network. I only joined about a week ago.

The premise is simple. The more interesting content you create which gets shared, the more money you make.Ā Early adopters can get in early and take advantage of its relatively clean interface, small set of users, and limited spam (what I love most about this social site.)

Following the stats are impressive. After less than 24 hours on the network, I have gathered a few followers and generated several comments and likes from people I did not know. I used hashtags to find and be found. I like the way Tsu.co works so far. And more importantly… unlike facebook which gives me a sense of “creepy-ness” with regards to some of the people and their post(s), Tsu.co is more of like-minded people just sharing good vibrations.

So what does this mean for business influencers and brands? Tsu.co keeps 10 percent of the revenue it earns from its ads. It gives the other 90 percent to its content creators and the people that share posts.

If you are social and share quality posts you will get paid cash. Tsu.co works with organic reach. It rewards influencers who publish content and who have lots of friends.

Tsu.co represents a social monetisation platform for content. You can invite people to join the network. These users will become your ā€œchildrenā€. Any people they invite will become their children and your ā€œgrandchildrenā€.

It is a bit like the MLM concept of pyramid selling, however Tsu.co is all about content. Tsuā€™s algorithm automatically tracks, measures, and distributes revenue to the appropriate user and their family tree of children and grandchildren.

The network wants you to create your own network and control it. It also wants you to receive revenue for the original content you own and post.

90 percent of revenues are distributed to users. To maintain the platform, Tsu receives 10 percent of revenue. It uses the term ā€œinfinite thirdsā€ to describe how it allocates its revenue. Hereā€™s how it works:

From $100 revenue, $90 is shared with users. If four users have shared and re-shared content, the revenue is split like this:

The original content creator receives 50 percentĀ of the remaining $90; in this case, $45. The first user to share the content gets 33.3 percent (one third) of the original $90 generated. In this case, $29.70.

The second degree user, who shares the re-shared content, receives 11.1 percent (1/3 of 1/3 = 1/9) of the original $90 generated. In this case $9.99. The third user (think your third degree connection) receivesĀ 3.70 percent (1/3 of 1/3 of 1/3 = 1/27) of the original $90 generated. In this case $3.33.

Its a very cool way of sharing revenueĀ ā€“ surely something that other companies might be interested in copying.

Tsu.co wants its users to be able to monetise all of their content through sharing. According to Billboard, Tsu.co founder Sebastian Sobczak says: ā€œWhy should anyone commercially benefit from someone elseā€™s image, likeness and work giving no financial return to the owner?ā€

Will Tsu.co provide its users with the features that other networks cannot? It certainly seems to have enjoyed significant buzz just one week after launch. Ello, which shot into the news the other week,Ā appears to be slipping in its popularity if Google searches are anything to go by.

Most users who share and like content will not see their Tsu.co revenue increase by more than a few cents. But brands that produce awe inspiring, viral, great content will reap the rewards as their content gets shared across the web.

SomeĀ users and influencersĀ will make a lot of money. Brands might be able to justify some of their marketing investment. MostĀ users ā€”Ā  who only click to like and share ā€”Ā might find that Tsu.co is not the super platform they hoped it would be.

But for those who take the time to produce well-crafted, original content, this might be the platform they have been looking for. I will certainly shift my focus away from Facebook to give Tsu.co some quality social time.

I hope to see you on Tsu.co/workwithsimon one day šŸ˜‰

Use Social Bookmarking Sites For Traffic

Mr.Blogging Social Bookmarking

How to use Social Bookmarking Sites For Traffic Generation

If you’ve ever wanted to take advantage of the traffic potential of social bookmarking site, there are certain steps you’ll need to take to make your efforts more effective. Social bookmarking sites are a haven for content and they make it very easy to find subject matters of your choosing. Social bookmarks… or rather blogmarks as I like to call them can be accessed by online tags that describe the contents or by keywords both of which help to make your search quick and convenient.

Due to the immense popularity of these sites, they also can be a excellent source of online traffic if used correctly. Here are some basic points to consider when you are going to use social bookmarking (blogmarking) sites for online traffic generation.

1. Bookmark or Blogmark your Best Content.

2. Post social bookmarks of your own content, at all the sites you have registered at. Whether you’ve just posted and entry to your blog or perhaps you just had an article published, be sure to bookmark them.

3. You’ll only want to bookmark content that you think may be of interest and benefits to other members.

4. You’ll need to choose the Appropriate Category. When submitting your content or that of others, always choose the most appropriate category. To do otherwise will only serve to “bury” the content since people will not be able to find it.

5. Promote Your Bookmarks or Blogmarks! Especially if your blog encourages readers to check out your published articles and bookmark them! Take advantage of the interactivity of a blog and use it as a “pulpit” of sorts. Once again, always be sure that your article or post contains “content that is worthy” of your request(s). In other words… Don’t bookmark any old rubbish!

5. Read the Membership Agreement. Every site will have rules or regulationsĀ  that you’ll need to become familiar with so as not to endanger your activeĀ  status within the site itself. You’ll also want to remain in good standing with other members too so that they will support you and help “promote” your bookmarks and blogmarks.

6. Give as Well as Receive! As on any social network sites, it is important to “interact” and contribute with bookmarks or blogmarks other than your OWN content. By just bookmarking content only belonging to you, others will tend to then dismiss all of your bookmarking activities as shameless promotions which will be detrimental to Your Brand.

Remember these are called Social Bookmarking sites for a reason.

You are expected to share newsworthy content(s), opinions and your own support with other members in the community, not doing so will only alienate YOU!

Social Blogmarking or Bookmarking sites can be used to generate a significant amount of web traffic provided it is done correctly. These sites function mainly as online social communities that share all different types of content. This content is referred to as Social Bookmarks (Blogmarks) can be easily accessed by online tags and keywords that describe the content itself. This makes the search process more convenient and faster. As with any “community”, there are certain codes of conducts or behavior are always expected. The few points we discussed here today should serve as a reminder of how to properly use social bookmarking site. So by conducting your activities in an appropriate and acceptable manner, it will make using social bookmarking sites more enjoyable and your traffic generation efforts more productive and successful too.

There are many social bookmarking sites out in the web these days. Huge sites like: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus+, Tumblr, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Digg, MetaFilter, Newsvine, Folkd, FARK, Scoop.it, Slashdot, Delicious, Mr.Wong and Mr.Blogging.com just to name a few.

Used correctly, your almost guaranteed an unlimited amount of traffic to anything you might have to offer.

Let’s just say that I wasn’t comfortable with their marketing tactics. And If I’m not comfortable doing business with any company or person, I certainly WILL NOT endorse it for my loyal subscribers and members.

Hate to Sell? – Design Your Business So You Don’t Have To

Hate to Sell? – Design Your Business So You Don’t Have To

Owning your own business can have tremendous benefits. You can

experience the joy of being your own boss, setting your own

hours, working from home, and earning just as much as you want.

But with all that freedom comes a few challenges. If you’ve

already worked a home-based business, you know what they are. A

dislike for selling tops the list for millions who start their

own business.

“I really believe in my product,” Maria says. “But I hate trying

to sell it to complete strangers. Often they aren’t interested

and the rejection makes me want to give up on the business.”

These days it isn’t necessary to like to sell or even know how to

sell. Automated systems are taking over all the selling and

prospecting duties.

Here’s how this highly automated system works. Advanced search

engine marketing automatically pulls thousands of prospects to

state of the art web sites. Keep in mind, these are TARGETED

prospects. They aren’t just anybody, but are mostly those who are

actively interested in your product or service.

Then a pro sales team talks with each prospect. This keeps YOU

from having to talk on the phone with customers. The sales team

answers all the prospect’s questions and quickly finds out if the

prospect is qualified to buy your product or service.

Then the prospect, already sold and ready to buy, is delivered to

you. You simply get up in the morning and check to see how much

you’ve sold — that’s it!

But what if you don’t already have a product or service? That’s

no problem. This automated system is so hot that you can simply

sell the system to others and earn thousands per week. That’s

right — THOUSANDS per week.

With that kind of big money, you may be looking at home-based

business in a new light. Use your automated home business to

augment your income, pay off bills, expand your budget to afford

nice cars or a better place to live, even retire early.

Or make your home business your full-time career. Think of all

the options you’ll have in life when you only work a few hours to

a few minutes per day. You can get up when you like, get dressed

when you like, never have to commute, and spend just as much time

as you want with those you love.

Clearly, automation and out-sourced selling is turning home-based

business into the new “dream job.” Get on board while this

exciting trend is hot.

My Personal Story The Need For Mentors

My Personal Story: The Need For Mentors In Business

This story is basically my life, my journey through this golden age that is the internet. A wonderful medium to use to make contact, partnerships, joint ventures and especially a wonderful tool one can use to make an income for one’s personal and business interests. Don’t take my word for it, just do a quick search on google!

However, In order to become successful each of us must come to terms with our weaknesses. We have to acknowledge our deficiencies and learn from our mistakes. More importantly we have to associate with those who we aspire to, with those that are already successful. We NEED A Mentor or Mentors (doesn’t hurt learning from more than one). In saying that I would just like to acknowledge those who I’ve done business with and learned from over the years.

First up, and I’ll try to say this in the order that I’ve met them.

Joel Therion: Joel is CEO of GVO, which stands for Global Virtual Opportunities. Aside from being an incredible hosting company, they also provides affordable solutions for audio and video production, contact management, and more significantly, an easy-to-use web conferencing suite.Ā  Joel’s products are affordable and powerful stand alone systems but can, if you wish, also provide a great global home business opportunity that is GVO.

Ewen Chia: An Internet Marketing Super Affiliate, Sort after Author and Speaker Ewen started out even not knowing English very well. English was his second language (just goes to show, you can do this business no matter where you’re from). I learned from Ewen through his Internet Millionaires Program. Great Info there! If you get the opportunity to work with Ewen, grab it with both hands. He’s that good at what he does.

Mark Call: I first met Mark during my stint at Empower Network. Mark has been an Internet Marketer and Network Marketer since 1991. He now enjoys being an Online Business Marketing Coach and is an MLM Trainer, Author and Motivational Speaker. Mark is downright down to earth, and a very good mentor.

and then there’s last but not least Mr Alex Jefferys. A powerhouse titan of an Internet Marketer. It wasn’t till I joined his Elite Marketing With Alex program that well,.. things really fell into place and ramped up from there. At least for me anyway. Now my current support and mentor. I highly suggest that you join his “Marketing With Alex” program if and when it’s open again!

I would like to say a big “Thanks” to all these people, and especially Mr Alex Jeffery’s, yes here in public as my gratitude of the knowledge they’ve shared with me over the years for if not for them my life would not be as it is today and I’m forever grateful!

I write this in the hopes of inspiring like minded individuals who like me, not that long ago was working a DEAD BEAT JOB! almost no superannuation, trying to make ends meat and having to feed a ever growing family of 6 on a “chef’s wage”. The F&#!ing stress I was under… I won’t go into here, but you get my drift? Thank you Alex! is all I’ll say.

Anyhow, the point is, if you, and I mean Anyone here. If anybody at all has those same desires of creating a life for themselves and I mean that. Anybody willing to Listen, Learn, and Apply to the systems that these guy’s teach and speak about. And if they persist and keep on persisting I’ve now doubt, Anyone can make it in this game that is working from home, from the Internet. In my opinion The Best Market in The World!! Think about it? It’s ever-green, in Huge demand and the market is only ever growing as more and more people get online every year. And as the world economy only gets worse, there’s another market opening up right there!

I just want to conclude by saying this. Those that see the Potential will jump on this and give it a go. And those that are skeptics will just go about their usual cycle of frustrations and failures trying this that and the other period. And again… get a Mentor! we can’t do this on our own in this game. I’m bless to have met these guys and have them as mentors, direct or indirect, either way I’ve benefited from them tremendously and I know that You WILL too!

Until the nest post, oh wait just one last thing. Since things fell into place I’ve complied 7 Reports for my new followers, they’re reports that Will help you grow Your Business. My Gift! to You and Free of charge cause it’s currently selling now. Go ahead, Opt-in get the gifts and have a read and put what you learn into your business and see maximum results.

Thanks for reading.

P.s, my wife thought that I was nuts and that I should be called “The Persistent Nutcase Marketer” lol, cause it took me almost 8-9 years to put it all together and work it out.

p.p.s, If you’re struggling with your business, I would definitely check out the Gifts, I know You Will benefit from them!

p.p.p.s I know, I know, I just can’t help being personal. That’s my style. I just want to say, If you have any reservations at all about this business model of working online, Don’t be!.

It’s been proven time and time again. This “system” works for those who work it. It’s Not some get rich quick scheme here. Just a real genuine business you can build on to make the life of your choosing. Plain and simple.

God Bless and All the Best!

5 More Way to Building a Subscriber List

Get Response Email Marketing

5 More Ways to Building a Subscriber List

  1. Include a ‘Sign Up’ button in your newsletter. If you’re using plain text instead of HTML, be sure to provide a text link to your subscription page. You may feel that this is not required because the subscriber is already on your list, but remember that readers will forward your newsletters to others, or reprint them online. Make it easy for them to subscribe!
  2. Add a squeeze page. A squeeze page has one goal in mind, that is ? to acquire opt-ins and build your list. Think of it as a mini-sales letter to go along with your subscription or opt-in gift. It should feature a strong headline and a couple of powerful benefits that should make subscribers salivate to sign up! Once created, use a service such as WordTracker to find hundreds of targeted keywords, and promote your offer using pay-per-click advertising from Google, MSN and Yahoo. Now that should make a splash!
  3. Include testimonials on your squeeze page. This is crucial. Put one or two strong testimonials from satisfied customers on your squeeze page. This can be in any format, but you may find that multimedia (audio or video) is more ‘believable’ and inspires more people to action. To further enhance believability, get permission to use actual customer names, locations and/or urls (Don’t use ‘Bob K, FL’). Add a note inviting others to participate. After all, it’s free publicity!
  4. Blog religiously. Blogging is a great way to communicate with prospects and potential customers, and creates a nice synergy with your email marketing. Be sure to include your newsletter sign-up form on each page of your blog. You can start a free blog at Blogger or WordPress. Blogging at least once a day make a hell of a lot of difference believe you me.
  5. Post on other blogs. Post thoughtful comments and information on similar blogs with a link to your squeeze or opt-in pages. Also comment on others’ blogs through trackbacks. In most cases, your comments will be posted on their blogs with a link back to your site. This is an easy way to generate new traffic and subscribers, and get your brand out there! Just remember though, No Spam please.
