It’s not new news, but if you haven’t heard the statistic before that only 2% of any post you make on facebook will be seen by your facebook fans and friends, then it’s new to you! And, it’s important for everyone to take action toward increasing that number.
Web Marketing All-in-One for Dummies co-author, Marty Dickinson, claims he could just use facebook all day long and he’d have all the leads he would need to keep his business growing.
There are three simple concepts to using the Internet to get more leads or sales for your business and to make more money online. No matter what products have been launched over the past year or what social networks have sprung up, the same three concepts haven’t changed. We figured with all the hoopla going on right now in the Internet marketing world, it was perfect timing to unveil our new educational manual for accomplishing those three tasks, which are:
I always make a point of giving advice only for things I’ve already done. Then if it works for me, I share what I accomplished. If it’s a dog, I tell why it failed.Today I need to deviate from that and tell you what someone else did to get herself on CNN.First, click this link or copy and paste this link to your browser: http://tinyurl.com/na7adu to see the video that was shown on CNN last Wednesday morning, made by someone who identifies herself only as Adriana.Here are three reasons why I believe she got featured:1) Her Video is About a HOT and STEAMY SEXY Topic: Health Care Reform – She “attended” a town meeting where the health care plan was discussed. CNN is looking for town meeting attendees right now to hear their “real people” opinions.2) She Looks Like a “Regular” Person – I don’t mean that as an insult. It’s just what CNN is looking for right now; people who represent the people. Adriana is articulate, but not a polished and rehearsed professional speaker. She could be a professional speaker for all we know, but she just doesn’t come off as being one on the video. But, she’s certainly good enough with words to the point where CNN thought she wouldn’t fall to pieces on national television. So, the producers are getting ahold of her as I write this to invite her LIVE on CNN.3) Her Video is Self-Produced and Casual – This video is NOT made in a studio or with professional grade equipment. She probably didn’t even have someone recording the video for her. It’s unedited, has no music intro or outro, no fancy graphics. It’s just plain conversation. And, that’s what CNN is looking for too right now…common conversations on video.So, you have an interesting opportunity right now. You too could plop yourself down in front of a video camera and start speaking your mind. When you do, create an account at IReport.com and submit your 5-minute-or-less video. Who knows, you might find yourself getting a phone call from CNN!I plan to do just that over the coming month and will be applying the health care debates to how they will impact my business. Just about any product or service you offer will be impacted by the health care bill positively or negatively. Share what you know and let’s all get on CNN!

White papers have become increasingly popular over the years. They are usually more step-by-step and how-to oriented and more detailed than a “free report” but not as long as an entire e-book, but longer than a typical article you see on the web.
People who hate writing…simply love writing white papers because they’re so easy and fast to produce. Subscribers love them because they have (or should have) exceptional value in a small package, usually 3-20 pages.
It’s the only thing we want. Extreme Website Traffic! We don’t even care if we get sales anymore. We just want the traffic and figure the sales will come.
We don’t just want traffic of any kind, we want “targeted traffic” too. And, it seems like something that’s harder to attain than this time last year.
