QR Codes . . . Why?????

April 23, 2011 Posted by Ted

QR Codes are becoming the mobile device replacement for the legacy UPC barcode….sorta!

I was in Home Depot yesterday and noticed that the little plastic instruction spikes in the plants in the garden center had QR Codes so you could get information on the particular plant species right there in Home Depot on your mobile device. What a great use of QR Codes.

Want to add QR Codes to your business card, website or emblazoned on a t-shirt.

Hey Ted Why the silence.

You would think for a guy that types 75 words per minute, I would have alot more to say. Unfortunately, I lack in that department.

I am currently busy with Local Business Listing Robot and have little spare time to chat. LOL

I see our LBL Robot has “Made the grade” if “Imitation is the Best Form of Flattery”

We have spent six months developing LBL Robot and I don’t have the heart to tell this guy that he is WAYYYY under budget LOL

Take a look!!

Then again, this online business is littered with wannabees looking for the easy way to millions. Go Figger.

Why Most People Fail Online

How many times have you sat in front of the TV and said to yourself ‘I should really be working on my online business’… when really you only continued sitting in front of the TV, flicking through channels, looking for something that you ‘must watch’ and making up excuses to yourself that you just didn’t have enough time?

How many times have you said that you’ve got to do something, made a mental note of it and possibly even planned your day ahead only to be distracted from friends, family or colleagues?

How many times have you actually got down to work, but found it so hard to concentrate and get any real tasks done that you eventually gave up and started chatting on the forums?

Seriously how many times has that happened to you?… It’s all happened to us at some point in our lives – so don’t worry, we’re all in the same boat.

It’s no secret that you have to work to achieve your goals. Without working toward the achievement of your goals, you simply will never get there.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that the only option is grueling, back breaking work to get from where you are to where you want to be.

Thankfully, that’s not the case either!

What you need to do is combine hard work along with techniques for effective decision making to make progress toward your goals. The combination of these creates a synergetic approach which helps you achieve your goals faster and much easier.

It goes without saying that decision making is one of, if not the most, important factors in determining success in life, business, relationships, and emotions.

Sadly, the majority of people in the world suffer with wishy-washy decision making that doesn’t move them toward their goals but keeps them floundering instead! Most people sit on important decisions for hours, days, weeks, and even months or years when a fast decision would have been more than ample. The stress comes from over analyzation of a decision and wanting to make the “perfect” decision. This usually results in no decision which means NO results!

Don’t try to reinvent the wheel when it’s easier to work with it

When it comes to making money (online and offline) there are two factors that are vitally important. Time and effort.

Your time is valuable and you want to spend your time doing what you’re good at. If you’re good at closing JV deals, you do that, if you’re good at creating sale page videos, you do that, if you’re good at emailing your list you do that.

The big mistake is attempting to do everything yourself. The last thing you want do for example do is spend your precious time attempting to design a mini-site header and get a B+ at best when you could hire someone else to get it done is half the time and give you A+ results.

The same applies with effort. Why attempt to do something from scratch when someone has already done the work for you. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel when it’s easier to work with it.

Smart use of your time combined with clever use of what’s already available is what will set you apart from other marketers.

How To Get Other People To Make Money For You

January 17, 2011 Posted by Ted

When you create a product online for sale you basically have 2 courses of action that you can follow.

You can first of all look at doing all the promotion yourself and keep all the commissions for yourself or you could get together an army of affiliates to do the work for you.

If you want to get out of the trenches and command an army of affiliates you will make more money long term as you will have people promoting your site for you and when you leverage the power of other people like this and scale things up it can be very lucrative for you.

The trouble is all your efforts may have gone into creating your product and now you have to go and find the affiliates. The following are some tips that will help you find these people and get them promoting for you.

The first thing to do is to make sure your product is listed in a market place like click bank or pay dot come where affiliates can get access to your product in order to promote it. You will then need to make sure that you have an affiliate page where you will have affiliate tools for them to use.

Affiliates are far more likely to promote your product if you give them the tools straight up in order to do so. These tools will include things like graphics where they can put their affiliate links and reviews that they can post on their blogs. You could also look at giving them keywords they can use in their articles or ad words campaigns.

If you want to gather a team of affiliates to help you with your product you will also need to go hunting for them and there are a variety of methods you can use to help you with this. If your product is in the IM sector there are a number of sites out there where you can find JV partners for your launch and if it’s in another sector you can also find affiliates on a variety of different forums and sites out there that will promote for you.

The Trouble with creating products online though is that time can be against you, especially if you are doing everything yourself. Having the right affiliates on board though can literally mean the difference between success and failure online. While they are busy selling your product you will be able to go about creating new products and can be expanding your business.
