icontact.com autoresponder free edition

Autoresponders… gotta love ‘em!  Now, you know you need to have an autoresponder service but if you are just getting started with your online business you are probably on a tight budget and every penny counts right!?  Well, icontact autoresponder service has a free version that you can use for up to 100 customers in your database.  Once you go beyond 100 you will have to upgrade, but if your list is beyond 100, then you should be making some cash form that list and it’ll start paying for itself!

Now the thing I love about icontact is that they also allow you to import your database.  So lets say that you are keeping your list of clients in an excel file (ouch!), and you are now ready to embrace automation and put them into an autoresponder account.  You are going to have a really hard time importing them into any autoresponder service, except with icontact!  So, if you have a list and need to import them into an autoreponder, this is the solution for you.

Ok, so you want to get right to it and get started right!  Well signing up is easy.

Step 1: go to www.icontactautoresponder.com This will get you right to the free edition!

Turning Your Knowledge Into Profits With the Amazon Kindle!

Happy New Year!

We are so excited for 2012, and really looking forward to doing some exciting new things with what we’ve learned in 2011!  I love looking at numbers and the number that we are going to talk about in this post is 4 million!

Did you know that Amazon Sold 4 million Kindles this holiday season!  4 million!   They said that they sold 1 million Kindles a week in December of 2011.  It was the best selling product on Amazon, but not just Amazon.com, it was also the best seller on Amazon in the U.K., Denmark,Spain and Italy!

With record Kindle sales, it’s important to jump on learning how to cash in on the Kindle now. Don’t wait another day..

Here are some great articles for you to read on the Kindle craze:

Forbes.com :  Who Wants To Be A Kindle Millionaire?

Amazon.com: Lee Child and Suzanne Collins join the Kindle “One Million Books Sold” Club

Amazon Announces: More Kindle Books Sold Than Books in Print

Here are some Do’s and Don’t when it comes to Kindle Publishing

Do’s

  • Think about Keywords first (are people looking for this)
  • Create a keyword rich title and table of contents
  • Use PLR as inspiration for you e-book, don’t publish PLR as is.
  • Be open to outsourcing the writing of your book (guru.com, elance.com)
  • Hire an editor and proofreader (fiverr.com, guru.com, elance.com, odesk.com)
  • Get a great ebook cover (fiverr.com, 99designs.com, elance.com, odesk.com)

 

Don’t’s

  • Use PLR without massively re-writing it.
  • Start writing before researching (will people buy it!)
  • Don’t look at this as a ‘get rich quick deal’ , if you are going to put books on the kindle, put up quality and invest the time and resources to make a great product that you are proud of.

Lorette and I just want to take a quick minute to wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy new year!

… and of course now I reveal where we got this done..
and you already know the answer www.fiverr.com!

Hey!

On Thursday, Dec 8th our friend, Ty Cohen shared with us the secret of how he is making  more than $20,000 a month online with the Amazon Kindle.

First of all, he called us and told us what he was doing and, and I have to admit, I was skeptical at first… So, I attended one of his live webinars where he was sharing his strategies so that I could test it out myself. And that is exactly what I did…

I sat through the 90 minute webinar, did exactly what he taught, and made 3 sales within 3 days!

Now, thats nothing to brag about, but I literally didn’t spend much time on it and didn’t even follow all of his suggestions…I just wanted to get the stuff up there (don’t follow my example haha).

But, even with my lack-luster attemptI made sales.  So, I attempted to try it again (this time paying more attention), but the books I put up got taken down by Amazon!! Erghh!!! As you can image, I contacted Ty and said “Whats going on…” He then said you need to get my course, there are certain guidelines, tips, tricks and more that will help you fully understand how the program works…

So, I got the course and went through it, followed the instructions, put up another book and made 2 sales in 2 days…whoohoo!

Now, I plan on taking it to the next level and following Ty’s instructions to start making $20,000 a month with the Amazon Kindle as well!

If you want to learn how to do this also, watch the replay of the webinar where Ty will share with you (the same info he shared with me) on how to really cash in on Amazon Kindle

Alright, lets talk about …. Branding Your Fan Page !

Facebook Fan Pages are constantly changing and there’s no better time then now to get started. Pages always seem to be a work in progress, so don’t be afraid if your page isn’t perfect.  Most people we meet never get to the point of having a Fan Page up and running because of this fear that it’s not perfect.  Do Not Worry… Rome was not built in a day… Neither will your Fan Page be…

In October, 2010, Facebook surpassed Google for the number of searches each day.  To respond to this, Google has made every effort to “Crawl” Facebook Pages to increase their searchability in the organic rankings.  The game has changed and here’s your chance to have an unfair advantage over your competition.

1.  Your Fan Page should have a consistent look and feel and should try to match other elements of your online marketing efforts.  Logos should match, designs should be similar, content should be consistent through all of your online assets.  Consider using the same graphics with Twitter and YouTube to round out your consistant branding and messages.

2.  Integrate your website content into Facebook and vice versa.  There are ways for your website to have your Fan Page wall integrated right in creating the feel of constant activity.  In addition, you can include in your iFrame RSS feeds from other resources online.  Maybe it’s about the weather, or Mortgage news, Local Events, anything that you think your viewers might be interested in.

3.  Create a Tagline for your business.  What is your 10 Second Elevator Speech?  Video is a HUGE way to build your brand.  Could you record a 90 second Infomercial?  Doesn’t have to be professional, but should be high quality content.

Alicia, Lorette, Jim and Emily recorded a 90 minute class for you.  In this lesson you will find out more about branding your fan page.  Click the link to watch that free class: http://www.fbcashcreator.com/fb/

Today we are going to talk about Dominating Your Niche in Facebook!

Often times we meet clients who are marketing their business online, but not getting any results.  Generally the reason is because the marketing is too broad and unable to compete with some big spenders of Search Engine Optimization services.  Below are some ways that you can easily modify your marketing and begin to dominate over competitors in Facebook.

1.  You have a niche – but are there micro niches that are included?  Example – Golf Instructor -  By having separate Fan Pages relative to “Improving your Short Game”, “Improving your Long Game”, “Club Selection”, “Golf Course Etiquette, even “Healthy Eating to Improve your Handicap”.  These are all topics that are searched widely in Google and if you have fan pages with separate topics, your page will more likely be found.

2.  Facebook is GIVING out URL’s!  Get them now… even if you aren’t ready to use them yet!  These are keyworded domains like:

http://www.facebook.com/ImproveYourGolfShortGame or  http://www.facebook.com/NewportBeachPlumbing if you are a local business.  Think about the following; if you have a business that can sell anywhere in the United States, create a Fan Page for each major city in the US – there are 100 of them with over 1 million people in each.

3.  Sell products and services that Buyers are BUYING.  It may be more profitable to adjust your offering to meet Buyers demand.  Even a slight change in the way a niche is marketed could alter your profit dramatically.  We will talk more about it on the webinar.

Learn more by watching the online class where we talk more about doinating your niche in facebook.  You can watch the class right now, online for free at: http://www.fbcashcreator.com/fb/

So, Facebook allows you to have an incredible amount of freedom within a Fan Page.  This is for good measure.  You see Facebook sells Pay Per Click advertising which is a huge profit center for them.  The longer people are on Facebook, the more valuable the Pay Per Click advertising becomes.  So Facebook encourages complete creativity when it comes to Fan Pages in order to increase this time.

1.  Graphics – The Side Bar Graphic is a perfect place to create a strong call to action.  Consider including an arrow to like the page or pose a question that has the answer revealed in the iFrame portion of your website.

2.  The Reveal tab is a graphic which “Hides” your page and the only way a viewer can see the rest of the iFrame page is by “Liking” your page.  You can even have a video in your Reveal Tab.  The Reveal tab can be a HUGE call to action which builds your pages credibility.  The more likes, the more credibility.  The more credibility, the more chance of converting a prospect.

3.  iFrames – Your website within Facebook.  Did you know that less than 10% of businesses have a Fan Page?  And most who do, don’t even ask for an email address to build their lists. Facebook allows you to have anything that is on a website within a Fan Page.  This is very powerful when it comes to branding yourself or selling products and services from a Fan Page.  Facebook even allows you to have your own URL that can be keyworded and can even have page ranking in Google.  There are Thousands of businesses who are leveraging Facebook for more leads and more revenue.  In fact, in our upcoming webinar, we’ll reveal how your Facebook Fan Pages can actually rank in Google on page one organically.

When it comes to Business, Profiles, Fan Pages, and Groups all working together – you can create a viral following on Facebook.

1.  Branding your Personal Profile is extremely important in communicating your message.  We recommend using Graphics and Photos to accomplish this goal.  You see, people buy from people.  And the prospective buyer wants to identify with the seller.  Photos and Graphic help accomplish this.

2.  Imagine having a website within Facebook… with even a legitimate URL, like, facebook.com/poprocks.

If you were selling pop rocks, this is the kind of URL you would want to acquire.  As long as it is available, you can get it…  there are a couple of steps, though.  We went through these steps in an online class.  Here is the recording for that class: http://www.fbcashcreator.com/fb/

3.  The Power of Groups – Groups are a community of “like minded” people sharing ideas, collaborating, and promoting products and services within a specific niche of interested people.  A very powerful piece of Facebook.  Think of Facebook Groups as a type of membership site.  Even documents can be shared amongst the members of a group.  Groups can be open (Public) or closed (Private) where your members must qualify.

So, lets keep learning.  You can watch this free online class to learn more about profiles, fan pages and groups.  http://www.fbcashcreator.com/fb/

For the next week we are going to be talking about facebook marketing!  It’s a hot topic and we all want to know how to cash in on facebook, so you can watch this free video lesson on how to really cash in with facebook marketing: http://www.fbcashcreator.com/fb/

Lesson #1

Facebook made big changes to the profile layout with the focus being on a “Timeline”of everything you do with Facebook, including things you do outside of Facebook.   With this new focus and the adding of a big cover graphic you have new opportunities for some major marketing!

First, the cover graphic is huge!  You now have 850×315 pixels of  prime marketing space where you can add  graphics with text.  Additionally, the Timeline lets you “Feature Stories”, which means your posts promoting your business or an affiliate product can now take center stage instead of being lost among other less significant posts.

Click on the this link: http://www.fbcashcreator.com/fb/ to watch a video that will teach you a little more about the new facebook profiles!

Anyway, every partner I work with and the consulting student I work with – I require them to get this book! If you are doing business online – grab this book – now! Don’t wait until you’re in ‘trouble’ -> learn what you need to do now!

In today’s issue of Turning Your Knowledge Into Profits we are talking about repurposing your content.

We are learning today from watching all time great marketer Jay Abraham.  I’m a big fan of Jay’s and have had the privilege of working with him on projects and events in the past and I’ve seen him speak many times (in the USA, Asia and Australia).  Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to learn from Jay and his advice and strategies has shaped many of the ways that we do business today.

In the video below I walk you through how Jay Abraham is repurposing his video content by adding a video on the front of his presentation clips.  Watch below:

In this week’s episode of Turning Your Knowledge Into Profits we are talking about creating content using audio.

Ongoing content creation is critical for success in the online world. Not only can it build the road for people to find you but it can also help to keep them engaged and coming back for more.

The more traffic you have coming to your site, the greater the chances are that your online business will become a success.

I know you are probably thinking, that sounds great, but where and how do I even begin creating content?

One of the quickest way to create content is through audio.  Most of us have a lot of content in our heads.  And we know if we could just get it out in the easiest way possible, we would have some great content to share with the world!

All you would do is record your content with audio then get that audio transcribed. Then you have a whole world of opportunities to do with that content from converting it into: articles, blog posts, products, free reports, ebooks, workbooks and more!  The audio can also be used as: an audio ebook, podcast, etc.

Try these tips to get started:

1. Write some notes – Before I record any audios, I write out a list of notes or bullet points. When you see the specific bullet points on your notes it will trigger you to talk about that specific topic. You shouldn’t need to write something out word for word.

2. Record your thoughts – Now record your thoughts in audio format. You can do this through a physical recording device or through your computer. The preferred format is MP3.

A great FREE tool to record your voice in MP3 format is MP3MyMP3

You simply download the software, then click the big red record button, and it automatically saves the files as an MP3 on your computer.

Click Here to read more about it

Note: If you are having a hard time recording your thoughts, ask a friend to interview you!  Sometimes it’s a lot easier if you ask a friend that can interview you to help bring this great information out of your head and into the world!  If your friend needs to interview you over the phone you can use a free conference line service called www.freeconferencecall.com to record that interview!

3. Get your audio transcribed –  Where can you find a transcriber? First lets visit my favorite site…www.fiverr.com. Listed below are some top rated transcribers (just search for their ids at fiverr.

4. Determine what you what to do with your new content – You can post your new content on your blog, turn it into a product, submit it as an article…the list goes on.

Creating content should not be as hard as some people want to think, especially with the easy tools to record and access to great transcribers…you have no excuse! Start recording :-)

Anyway, if this is something that will make your life easier, then Grab it HERE , it’s free and simple to use!  Enjoy today’s tip!

P.S. I learned about this from my friend Stu McLaren who always has geeky tips! Thanks Stu.
