Did You Forget Something? Try Pagellan!

Posted on November 23, 2010 10:00 PM

You are probably catching on to the fact that I am not promoting many products these days. That's because most products and services coming out are not worth promoting. When you see the proliferation of traffic products, social media products, list building products and all the other rehashed same-old, same-old coming out, I'm sure you'll agree that there aren't many original ideas out there right now. So when I DO have something to share with... Continue Reading

What Are You Grateful For Today?

Posted on October 29, 2010 4:08 AM

"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." - William Arthur Ward How often do we gripe about the way things are in the world? How often do we complain about bad things that have happened to us? And how often do we lament that things in our lives should be different? If you are anything like me, the answer is likely to be "way too often." The... Continue Reading

I Tweet Like I Eat

Posted on February 25, 2010 7:25 PM

As Twitter continues to mature, so does my usage of it. I'm rapidly approaching my ten thousandth tweet (yes, that's 10,000) and I've had a lot of time to determine how Twitter works best for me. Notice that I didn't say "how I work best for Twitter." That's important, because I regularly hear people ask me this question. "How often should I tweet?" The person asking the question is usually riddled with Twitter anxiety (Twanxiety... Continue Reading

Give A Twitter Wave Not A Sales Pitch

Posted on February 22, 2010 10:00 PM

It's great to see how Twitter has grown in the time I've been using it. But what's really impressive is the way that people are using it. Sure, there are spammers leaping on hashtags and trying to attract attention but they're a minority. And they're easily blocked. For the most part, people are using Twitter the way it should be used: as a way of building a community, broadcasting a brand and making valuable connections. Continue Reading

Your own iPhone App

Posted on February 9, 2010 6:13 AM

The iPhone and the iTunes AppStore have become a staple of our culture and our daily lives in a very short time. Over fifty million iPhone and iPod Touch units have been sold and users have downloaded billions of apps from the AppStore. Do you remember when the World Wide Web was new? I do. In 1995 my site was one of only 25,000 websites in the entire world. Today there are billions of web... Continue Reading

So What Are Blogs For?

Posted on January 21, 2010 8:00 AM

When blogs first came out, no one really knew what they were for. They were supposed to be diaries, but diaries are meant to be private so why put them online? And if you did put one online, why would anyone want to read it? And if someone did want to read it, how you could earn money from those viewers? Continue Reading

iFart - The world's most famous iPhone application

Posted on January 6, 2010 11:07 AM

December 12, 2008. A day that will live in infamy. The aftershocks are still being felt (and smelt) throughout the iPhone universe. And the world has never been quite the same. For on that day, iFart Mobile was released to an iTunes AppStore public unaware of what was to come. Pure global flatulence domination. Continue Reading

Inspiration Takes a Vacation

Posted on January 4, 2010 11:13 AM

As December was coming to a close, I began to think of how I might help inspire you in the new year. I knew I would write something and post it on January 1st. But it didn't happen. In fact, January first found me uninspired. I was enjoying hanging out at home with my family and doing absolutely nothing. I thought to myself, I'll just write something on the second instead. Guess what? It didn't... Continue Reading

The Sign of Twitter Success

Posted on January 3, 2010 8:00 AM

There's a sign of success on Twitter that's very easy to spot. If you have many more followers than the number of people you're following then you're doing something right. Of course, it's possible to create a timeline like that simply by following lots of people, waiting for them to follow you... then deleting them. But that's not what I'm talking about. You should be following people because you find their tweets interesting, not because... Continue Reading

Using Communications To Create A Community

Posted on December 22, 2009 8:00 AM

Internet marketing isn't about technology. It's never been about technology. The computers and the Internet, the multimedia uploads, webinars and ebooks are all just a means to an end. They're tools for transferring information from one place to another. The revolution that has allowed us to build online businesses, even from our living rooms, garages and bedrooms, isn't a technological revolution. We've just enjoyed the benefits of those changes. It's a community revolution. Continue Reading

Twitter Hashtags Connect You To Your Community

Posted on November 30, 2009 8:00 AM

Twitter is simple stuff. It's powerful stuff, but it's not complicated. Just tell people what you're doing or thinking, keep them informed and a part of your life and your business, be you, and you should find that you're building both a following and a community. Continue Reading

I Purged My Twitter Acount

Posted on November 25, 2009 10:10 AM

I've now been on Twitter since May 2007. When I wrote Twitter power, I had about 5000 followers. Fast forward to late 2009. I hit 83,000 followers, but that's nothing compared to the hundreds of thousands or millions of followers that some members have acquired. It's been an interesting ride, but a number of things have happened that have caused me to reevaluate my Twitter strategy. Continue Reading

Success On Twitter Is All About You

Posted on November 16, 2009 8:00 AM

We knew it would happen. It always happens. Not long after Twitter's popularity hit the stratosphere, the spammers began swarming. Now direct messages boxes are packed with Mafia invitations, follower lists have been infiltrated by pornbots, and I had to put up with dozens of impostors trading on my name before my verified account was able to show who's really me. Whenever something gets big and successful on the Internet, you can bet that there... Continue Reading

Don't Buy This Product. You Won't Use It!

Posted on October 12, 2009 3:49 PM

Everywhere I go, people ask me how they can make money online. Every time I show up at a conference, I am swamped with people interested in owning their own Internet business. My Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts receive contact from people on a regular basis. Emails, tweets and submitted forms are always asking what tips I can provide for those who want to learn my strategies. Yes, even my email box is regularly under... Continue Reading
