I am in the middle of an intense writing project for a local client and let me tell you, I have been reading some incredible stories of determination and commitment. If you think home business success and achievement takes time, you might consider the demands and challenges faced by adult students working towards a university degree.

My task is to write a short bio for each student, to be read by a narrator as the student walks across the stage to receive his or her degree. I will have as many as 500 bios to write over the next few weeks.

These are committed individuals seeking greater success and achievement, greater knowledge, personal skills and professional credentials in order to advance in their chosen fields. In most cases, they are doing this BlipStarrwhile still working full time and raising a family.

Their level of determination, focus and commitment is evidenced by how they spend their “free time” during the program, which can last for several years depending on the field: instead of spending time with family or socializing with friends, in most cases, these students must use every bit if free time they can reading, studying, writing papers, doing required projects and, in some cases, working on site in their chosen fields to get practical, hands-on experience.

Social Networking With Music

One of the key ways to apply Affiliate Power to your Internet Marketing business is through Social Networking. Some online marketers may not realize that you can do Social Networking with music.

I am active as a Twitter member and through Twitter I was introduced to a great online music sharing site called Blip.fm. My Blip.fm user name is BlipStarr.

Blip.fm allows members to access and listen to millions of songs FREE, posted by members. The Blip.fm Terms of Use outline exactly how songs can be added to the Blip.fm playlist with due BlipStarrand proper respect to the legalities of copyright.

Basically, once you become a member, you have your very own Internet radio station where you choose the songs you wish to listen to. Also, you can “blip” or “reblip” your favourite tunes so other members can listen to them as well. It’s all very easy to set up and quick and easy to do once it is set up.

Here’s where the “Social Networking with music” part comes in. In your Blip.fm profile, you can include a link to your personal or Internet Marketing website. As you become active as a member of Blip.fm and fellow members get to know you, they will be interested in knowing more about you, so some of them will click your web link to find out “what you do.”

Additionally, you can set your Blip.fm station to automatically send your music blips to other Social sites like Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and more. This will increase your exposure across many platforms and the whole idea behind Social Networking for your Internet Marketing business is to expand your presence on the Net.
