Readers and Internet Marketing friends know that I am a student of online marketing and that I work at applying Social Marketing theory to help advance my online business. Well, recently I received a few rewards for my diligence!

Recent posts here have highlighted the purpose, methods and benefits of using a few particular Social Media sites to help build your web presence and your brand. In those posts, I shared information and inspiration I gained from a friendly competition sponsored by the Affiliate Power Group. … Read the rest of this entry

Training For A Successful Internet Business

How’s a guy supposed to get any work done with so many distractions? Building and maintaining a successful Internet business is tough enough without extracurricular activities taking a person’s attention away.

A few weeks ago we hired a crew to take down a bunch of trees in our front yard. This week we had roofers here re-shingling the roof. Today they are jackhammering out some old cement steps in preparation for some other exterior work we are planning.

On top of all that, we are expecting another grandchild any time now and although it is a few weeks early, we’ve already had a few false alarms and trips to the hospital. Hey. You know what? That’s all part of life and responsibility.

But what does this have to do with building a successful Internet business? Please read on … Read the rest of this entry

Maximum Achievement Means Recognizing Opportunity

GT Bulmer | Maximum Achievement GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central | GT @ Google+

Everybody wants to be the best they can be, but we don’t always take advantage of the opportunities sitting in front of us. Sometimes, maximum achievement just means being able to recognize and take action on those opportunities.

Two key elements of success are recognizing opportunity and having the skills or abilities to act on it: The recognition part might come down to experience or alertness; the skills and abilities part, on the other hand, can be developed and directed.

It’s all about personal development, self-improvement and planning for our future success. If you clearly know what you want and where you want to go, you will be able to identify and build the exact skills you need to get there. … Read the rest of this entry

This weekend, we spent a total of eight hours of hard labour (split between two days). The wife and I hauled and stacked more firewood than we can use in our lifetime. It made me think of an analogy for successful Internet marketing.

Two weeks ago, we hired a crew to take down almost 20 old and very tall trees in our front yard and along our driveway. They dropped the trees, cut off all the branches and put them through the wood chipper, and then cut the trunks of the trees into firewood-size logs for us.

This left several huge piles of logs in our front yard! We want to sell the logs for firewood, but we like things neat and tidy, so yesterday and today we manually hauled the logs to one spot beside our driveway and stacked them up nice and neat. By the way, some of the “logs” were bigger around than I could reach my arms! Hard labour. … Read the rest of this entry
