    The Flintstones Don't Need IM, Do They?

      in Articles

    My uncle owns and runs what you may call a small cookie factory for as long as I can remember. A handful of workers. Traditional recipes. Same old building and machines. Nothing has been changed there for decades. Same ol' same ol' if you know what I mean. Maybe this stubborn old school approach is to blame for the unmatchable taste and quality of my uncle's cookies. At the same time, I can also say for his sons who decided to rather invest their time and talents into law and medicine rather than their father's family business. He has been refusing to change over and over again. Rest assured that I have tried to talk him into some reasonable digital things for years. The best thing I could is for him to use a computer that still operates on Windows XP, which says enough about him. Launching a website was a mission impossible. His response and excuse were that this was a luxury and a completely unnecessary thing to do. Why? Because he was doing just fine. His old and loyal customers appreciate the quality he preserved for so long. On one occasion I said that instead of a handful of workers, he should have had a handful of factories such as this one, if he was to accept some of the things IM could have done for him.

    Productivity hacks and time management

      in Articles

    Productivity is one of topics that fascinates me, I love to find and test new ways of improving my management and the way I work, during the last months Ive tried a lot of techniques and productivity tools, and I wanted to share some of that experience with you. There are too many things to do, too few hours in the day, and way too many interruptions. The emails, the phone calls, the last minute changes all add up to a jammed packed day where you feel like you are running in circles, and not nearly enough gets accomplished. I believe that the key is to find the right technique that will work for you, and things will get done.

    A Double-Edged Sword: Price per word.

      in Articles

    Please don't move this post into Off Topic forum, because content writers don't have their category on this forum, and copywriters complain when you "invade" their territory with anything that isn't strictly copywriting related. Thank you. Why is the price per word a double-edged sword for any content writer? Well, I don't know how copywriters charge for their services per hour or project, but we content writers have serious problems with it. You need to have some kind of an orientation, don't you? So, even if I say I charge X dollars per hour, I get this question from a client: how many words you can write in an hour? Seriously?

    Pushing back against demanding clients...

      in Articles

    Just posting this here because I'm not sure where else. I recently had a relatively big money client ask me to add on to a bunch of work that I did. The add-ons would have been a reasonable request up front but are totally out of scope at this point and the project was completed and paid for quite a while ago. The issue is that they want to know where some of the facts were sourced from and I now have to go back through my browser history and through these articles and review everything that I've referenced for almost 8,000 words of articles! I'm not opposed to doing the extra work but I thought maybe I could bill them for some minimum wage hours just for going back and taking the time to find all of the sources. That might be a reasonable compromise between my normal bill-able rate and the request that I do this for free - I guess it's my fault for not expanding my client base to the point where I can afford to risk losing them by making a fuss.

    Top 30 Highest Traffic Classified Sites Where You Are Not Wasting Your Time Posting An Ad

      in Articles

    Here is a my list of the highest traffic classified sites where you are not wasting your time if you place an ad. People actually go to these sites, view ads, and buy stuff all the time. There is no site here with an Alexa of over 150k (The higher the Alexa ranking the lower the traffic. So low Alexa is busier). I have visited each site. There are no "junk" sites or poorly managed classifieds. A huge advantage to posting your ads to these sites is that many have affiliates and/or partners who place their feeds of ads on their sites. So by placing your ads on each site essentially your ads will be seen on thousands of other sites. Generally ads go for 30 days. You also have upgrade options for more exposure. Let me know what you think on my blog post here.

    Those 5 Steps Will Help You To Maximum Productivity (which means also more money)

      in Articles

    Do you know that you get 80% of your results from just 20% of your time and effort and consequently 80% of your time is virtually wasted on non productive activities?. Once you realize this it is easy to take advantage and either reduce the hours you work or significantly improve your productivity. The 80-20 rule was first discovered by Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto a hundred years ago. Using this knowledge is incredibly powerful in combating the "not enough hours in the day" mentality of today's society.

    The DO’s of a How-to Article!

      in Articles

    A how-to article is written as a 'sequence' ”first you do this, and then you do this. The essential question the writer asks herself when writing a how-to is, What happens next? If you are about to embark on a how-to, start at what you consider the beginning, and just keep answering that question over and over again. Before you know it, you will have sketched out a draft of a how-to article. STEP 1: SELECT YOUR TOPIC: Choose a topic that interests you enough to focus on it for at least a week or two. If your topic is broad, narrow it. Then write a rough draft, including everything you can think of.

    A warning to Freelancers - stop Copy/Pasting your proposals

      in Articles

    I've seen it over and over again on so many projects - the winning bidder isn't one of the mega-freelancers with a huge business team that spends all of their time prospecting and probably delivers extremely well on end product, it's the little guy who quoted an even higher price but personalized their bid and took the time to understand the needs of the client. Sending the same proposal in for every project isn't a very effective approach to marketing yourself in the Freelance graphics, web design or writing business. The very first signal that you're sending to prospective employers is that the project that they care so much about wasn't even worth your time, and the prospect of doing their business isn't even worth you writing a short proposal instead of copying and pasting.

    How to Make $1200 by Simply Writing Articles

      in Articles

    This article can show how you can simply earn $1200 by only writing articles. It is a very simple plan which if properly executed will give the desired results. It is an easy method but will require some hard work from your side in the initial periods of work. You will have to spend some time for making it work but will not be costing you very much especially after the initial struggle. It is a tried and tested system which will help you build a formidable foundation for your online business for your entire life. This system also involves duplication. For example, if an article is having x visitors then 10 articles will be having 10x visitors and therefore make 10x sales. This is what I am going to show in this article. Making money with this system is just a number game. The reason why many of them fail in the internet business is the lack of consistency and not being able to track their articles to get those numbers. I will show a method of using these numbers:

    How to Get More Prospects to Open Your Emails

    When you offer a free book or report in exchange for email addresses, you need to remember that people opted in because they were interested in that specific topic.

But if you're sending them emails on totally unrelated topics that they're not interested in, or worse you are all over the place in regards to content, then your list is going to ignore you because you're not giving them what they want.

    10 Ways Network Marketers Can Use Resell Right Products to Generate Leads and Sales

      in Articles

    The resell right product marketplace is a cornucopia of marketing knowledge and tools that can benefit anyone selling products and services online or offline for that matter. Direct sellers, affiliate marketers, eBay entrepreneurs and network marketers can all benefit tremendously from these products. However, my specific intent as the title of this article suggests is to focus on how network marketers can benefit from resell right products. My reason for this is due to the fact that there is a high degree of dysfunctional training prevalent in the network marketing industry which contributes to an appallingly high failure rate in excess of 80%. I know this from personal experience because I started out as a network marketer and wasted a lot of time and money using outdated recruitment methods that were painfully ineffective. Through the use of resell right products I was able to create fully automated lead generation and sales systems that literally cranked out leads an sales while I slept! It really is a wonderful feeling to turn own my computer in the morning and see that I have notifications of new leads and sales without ever having to deal with a lead broker or call someone on the phone and deliver a sales pitch. Next, I'll give you a brief overview of the resell right product industry and afterward share specific ways network marketers can use resell right products to accomplish exactly what I've just described.

    I really really want to believe in the Law of Attraction. And I do. Things have come into my life strangely, maybe even miraculously, or coincidently. I've manifested some material things, and failed to manifest relationship things. I've spent a year, about half of it doing Visualizations and Affirmations. Experimenting with just visualizations. Experimenting with just affirmations, and here are some things I've come to learn.

    Free Giveaways

      in Articles

    Free giveaways are essential to any IM business. For one thing, people expect to get them. There is so much free information on the Web that if you don’t offer something beyond what they can discover with a cursory search, then your visitors will simply go elsewhere. But there is another reason why you must give them a free giveaway, and that’s because it’s a way for them to discover if you’re right for them.
