**This is an excellent Tip – PAY ATTENTION 4 YOU**

.
Want to put your Online Business on the map (literally)??

What I mean is “would you like to learn a trick that will
help you get your Local Business listed quickly in Google?

I have found a very helpful video that shows you exactly
what to do and how to do it to get your Online (or off-line)
business listed quickly in Google.

You can check it out by going here:
==> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZHjgu0duTM

It’s a quick watch – a whole 4 minutes and 45 seconds,
that is well worth your time.

Knowledge of ‘methods’ and ‘systems’ are what will set you
apart from the pack if you want to make money online.

Learn this one, and stow it away in your bag of marketing
tricks. It will be a veritable ‘ace up your sleeve’ that most
your friends and competitors won’t be aware of.

I love stuff like this – I got a million of them….

- Stick with me and soon you will also :o )

Hey, I might have figured this out…

Hey,

Lets see if this works.  I’m going to try embedding the YouTube
Video I made Right below here, wish me luck!

OK, if it worked, the video ought to be right above me.  Now I’ll
have to save this and see if it worked :o ) – I’ll be back!

Lookin’ good so far- let’s go see.

Boy, I love that preview feature in Word Press for sure :o ) – worked
like a charm, awesome.

Please take a look, it even has full screen enabled if you want the
‘Big Picture’.

OK, as Porky would say, ”the-the-the-that’s all folk’s!”

So I made that little video about ‘ph*shing emails’ the

.
As you know, I’ve been playing with my Camtasia Studio,
getting to know how it works, locking in some of the basic
functions etc…,

So I made that little video about ‘ph*shing emails’ the
other day….

…and wouldn’t you know…..I went over my Bandwidth!
first time out :o ) – what a novice mistake….(oh well…)

You’ve got to be able to laugh at yourself :o )

We’re back online now and I have also uploaded the video
to my YouTube Account so, if you’d like you can view it and
save it to your favorites or send it out to your list members
by going to or directing your readers to here from now on:

==> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwrIC97BAnc

I think it’s a smoother play also.

Again, sorry about my ‘shabby’ appearance and my needing
both a haircut and a shave, it’s the end of Winter here, what
can I say – heh, heh – oh well again – :o )

It was a first try with my new Camtasia Studio software, I’m
sure I’ll do much better as I use it more.  Maybe I’ll come out
with a series of helpful video’s showing you folk’s how I keep
myself and my computer safe while I have been building my
ebusiness, what nifty little free tools I find and use and where
I find them - or something like that.

Let me know what you think by posting your opinions right here
on my Blog below this post. – OK?

Thank you for your input, I really appreciate it.

Phishing Emails are a pain in the @#*!

.
I hate ‘phishing emails’ and their perveyors!

I’ve put together a small video on ‘phishing emails’ for you
here today.  Good people and good companies are having
to deal with this ‘phishing emails’ nightmare daily, it’s growing
at an alarming rate of growth right now and there doesn’t seem
to be an end in sight.

I dont know about you but even with my filters in place, I deal
with the onslaught of probably more than 50+ phishing emails
a day.

If you’re not sure what a ‘phishing email’ is or how to recognize
one, this video hold a wealth of information on exactly that
subject and you shall be enlightened.

Anyway…on with the show!

Just click this link here and you will automatically be taken to
a page I set up for the video.  Press the play arrow and the
video will start right away:  This might be the first video you’ve
ever seen me in.  This is also me at the end of Winter needing
both a haircut and a shave – heh, heh – oh well :o )

==> http://www.thecuttingedgeezine.com/videos/PIP1/PIP1.html

I hope this helps you stay protected, sorry for the slight back-
ground wind noise, I’ll make sure my office fan’s are off for any
future desktop video’s I do.

Don’t forget, if you receive a phishing email, make sure to
add the ‘from address’ to your ‘Blocked Senders’ list.

Th.Th..Th…That’s All Folk’s!

Garrett’s first set of answers…

Nancy Darin tells me that her biggest problem last year, and
it continues to be, is the overwhelming amount of email she
receives every day. She says that it ‘robs’ her of time she
knows she should be putting in on her business.

Q: She wants to know – “How do I escape my email??”

A: I had a terrible problem with this very same distraction,
and for me it got to the point where I was receiving more
than 2500 pieces of email a day.

This is how I got a handle on it.

If you own webhosting and can use your own email addresses
or if you have to use free email addresses from Hotmail, Yahoo
mail or G-mail the solution is the same.

Create ‘junk’ email accounts for absolutely every membership
you join or type of email you receive but, be wise about it.

For memberships I use a memberships@— address, for
companies that I am an affiliate of I use an affiliatecos@—
email address, for Joint Ventures I use a jvgiveaways@—
email address and when I join a list just to get a little goodie
from someone I use a gift@ or even junk@— email address

Then I set up my email client with ‘message rules’.

This way, when I download my email, the pieces of email are
automatically put into like named email folders under my inbox,
that were created for them.

Then, if I have time I read what I want, and when I am short
on time I just erase, erase, erase.

Important emails never get missed because they are separated
out and put in the ‘read 1st’ email box I created for them and
junk emails are always dropped in the junk email boxes that
I can erase without worrying about reading them.

I also only download my email once a day, first thing in the
morning, this way if something hot has just hit the market,
my email about it will be one of the first to hit my readers
email box’s.

This way I can escape my email, accept for the pieces that
have to reach me.

This has cut my having to go through over 2500 pieces a day
down to a quick review of 150 or so, wow, what a difference.

I hope this was helpful for Nancy, and maybe even helpful
for a few of you also :o )

David writes and says that he has (3) things he needs help
with.

Thing1
Focus – Finding a way to stop the research and complete
a project, but which one is best?

Thing2
Finding time to complete tasks. I have to drink my coffee
and eat once in a while. Oh, and that sleep thing…it is not
overrated, it really is necessary.

and Thing3
Money – How could anyone buy every fantastic program
that will make them tons of money?

Q: How are these problems related? and what is the
solution?

A: Well, first of all David you do need to focus -and- as
a matter of fact one of my first posts this year had to do
with accomplishing that very task.

You can find that post right here:
==> http://garrettdann.com/MarketingTacticsBlog/2009/01/14/goal-setting-for-2009-and-beyond/

If you take the time to read this post and do the steps it
outlines you will be able to prioritize the jobs you have to
accomplish into their order of importance which will give
you focus.

Stop analyzing projects and just pick one and get started
on it. Just force yourself to do this.

Yes you could do PLR, and you could do eBay, and you
could have a product made for you through outsourcing
-but- the only way you are going to know what you should
start with 1st is too make list of what each project you’re
considering will require of you.

If you pick your top (4) idea’s and then make lists of what
each one would require from you -and- what you think each
one would do for you or bring to your overall success – and
then compare the lists – your choice of what direction to go
and what project to proceed with 1st will be much a easier
one for you.

Schedule in time for relaxing and enjoying your coffee each
morning, you might need to get started with your day 15
minutes earlier than you currently are but you will be able
to enjoy your coffee or eat a relaxing lunch if you schedule
the time to do so.

So Focus – find a starting point through organization and close
comparison of what your alternatives are, then – Action – take
action on your comparison and move full force into acting
upon one of your projects with careful planning and close
scheduling.

Oh, and David, concentrate more on reading and educating
yourself on what your true options are, and the final path will
be a much clearer one.

Get away from the ‘analysis paralysis’, pick a project after
a carefully analyzing your options, and as Nike would say
- Just Do It!

Once you have accomplished your first ‘task’ you will feel
an excellent rush from the sense of accomplishment that
will follow.

After that, each task will come easier and be accomplished
more easily as well.

David, this will only help if you start by reading my post here:
==> http://garrettdann.com/MarketingTacticsBlog/2009/01/14/goal-setting-for-2009-and-beyond/

I hope the solution I gave David helps him and some of
you as well.

Brandon D wants to know:

Q: What are some of the best places to buy traffic and
which ones are not scams?

A: Brandon, I have been doing business on the Net for more
than 8 years now and if there is one ‘true lesson’ that I have
learned it is – DON’T BUY TRAFFIC OR ‘HIT’ EVER!

These will not be people who are actually interested in your
offer and will require you to sell them on your product.

Well, let me back up a second. What I mean to say is, do
not purchase ‘lists’ or ‘targeted hits’ from the many ‘traffic
selling companies’.

This is not traffic that you would be happy with.

If you want to spend money to get hit’s I recommend that
you take a look at Anik’s and Amit’s PPC Classroom.

PPC stands for Pay Per Click, and there are no better
instructors anywhere for learning how to do Pay Per Click
advertising with outstanding results than Anik and Amit.

PPC Classroom is world renowned at this point -and- has
taught literally thousands of it’s members how to make
hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.

I myself have been a member and have truly had my eyes
opened as to the correct way to use PPC. They don’t tell
you to advertise on just Google either, they suggest a triple
pronged approach using Google Adwords, Yahoo Search
marketing and MSN’s PPC program as well – all at the
same time.

They really go into depth on how to research all the different
niches you might be looking at, and how to pick the one’s
that pretty much ensure your success.

I just sent my Dad some info on their company earlier today
as a matter of fact, so I happen to have it handy.

Unfortunately, their registration is now closed but, you can
sign up to be notified when they re-open, which seems to
be about every 3 months or so right now.

Here’s where you leave your name and email:
==> http://www.ppcclassroom.com/welcome.php

As for right now, I have another solution for you, and you
have probably even heard of it because it’s hitting the IM
world in a big way right now, it’s called Google Slapper!

I reviewed a copy of this, because the owner is a good
friend of a good friend of mine :o )
==> http://ie01gd1108.gslapper.hop.clickbank.net

Definitely check this one out Brandon.

Also, if I was considering buying traffic, and as a matter
of fact I have in the past, knowing what I know now, I
would have either put my money into PPC Classroom or
John Reese’s Traffic Secrets 2.0 or a membership with
Traffic Geyser.

You can check out John Reese’s Traffic Secrets 2.0
offer right here:
==> http://www.trafficsecrets.com/itseasy

and You can check out Traffic Geyser’s offer right here:
==> http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/aftrack.asp?afid=551857

But Brandon, honestly, if money is a factor, and when is
money not a factor… I would probably put my $47 into
a copy of Google Slapper, which you can get here:
==> http://ie01gd1108.gslapper.hop.clickbank.net

or Adeel’s new Google Ads Free Video’s product, which
you can get here:
==> http://ie01gd1108.ppcadsfree.hop.clickbank.net

Both are heavily backed by No Questions Asked, Money
Back guarantee’s – I know both owners -and they will
both bring you hordes of traffic for mere pennies, for
years to come.

Not one time traffic, paid for today and gone tomorrow
traffic, but instead – targeted traffic that is ‘already looking
for what you are offering – today – right now! – with money
in hand’

This is the kind of traffic you want if you want to pay for
traffic — so why not pay once, to learn how to generate
targeted traffic by the thousands for years to come – right!

I hope the solution I gave Brandon helps him, and some
of you as well.
—————-

When I get questions I will try to be timely about posting
my responses to the problems you have.

Thank you for your questions, I will try my best to help.

If you have a question or need help with something, post
your question to Me here:

As I always say…

“Adding To Your Success – Adds To My Success!”

Till next time – take care, and be good humans.

Finally back up and running…..

Wow, that was Hell!

I lost the hard drive to my main computer during an install of Norton Anti-virus 2009 after using C-Cleaner and eliminating some Registry entries that I shouldn’t have.

I will never make that mistake again…

Anyway, hip hip hooray for Norton Ghost – it saved my everything for me and put me right back to exactly the way I was prior to ‘the problem’.

I know I should have a link here to Norton Ghost, but that just wasn’t on my mind – I just wanted to let people know where I was (Hell!) – and that I was back!

I’ll have more posts up later today, there’s sooooo uch to tell you about, it will be hard to decide where to start, but I’ll probably start with Frank Kern…

 

Talk to you then.

What held you back most…??

Here’s the deal…

I’m ‘planning out my project for the year’ and I would like
to start off by making ‘your year’ a better one than the last
by helping you with the ‘items’ that you need help with the
most.

Really – I’m very serious.

As I always say (and mean) – “Adding To Your Success
Adds To My Success!” so, in the interest of this, I have
a small favor to ask of you:

I have created a very small ‘Poll’ page on my website that
I would like to ask you to take 30 seconds and make out
for me.  I would really appreciate it if you could do this for
me and it really will only take you 30 seconds.

It is really simple and only consists of  asking this:

“How well did you live up to your Goals and Expectations
for 2008?  Did you accomplish everything in 2008 that
you set out to achieve?

If you did – congratulations to you, please have another
great year in 2009!

If you did not – what do you think are the 3 biggest ‘things’,
‘reasons’ or ‘obstacles’ that held you back from achieving
your 2008 Goals? What did you need to have had a better
year?”

That question is followed by 3 spaces for you to use to fill
in your responses – and there is no size limit to the requests
you fill these blanks in with.

…there are also no ‘rewards’ being handed out so, try to keep
it concise if you can :o )

Leaving Your Name, Email Address or Comments is
completely optional!

You are welcome to just leave the information you would
like me to have.

If you could do this small favor for me, I would really appreciate
it greatly.

If not, you will receive no less than you always have from me
- I would just appreciate it greatly if you could do this for me,
that is all.

For all the goodies I have brought you in the past, and will
continue to bring you in the future, please click this link and
go to the page it takes you to and tell me what you need most.
