College education in advertising ... for FREE!

This is going to get a few grins, snarls, gripes, shoulder shrudding, etc ...

Each of you are in business for yourself in one way or another and part of AdlandPro.  It's my honour and duty to share with you anything that can help you grow.  So, for your homework, yes, homework, the first step is simple and only takes about 5 minutes or less a day.  As you go through your daily postal mail set aside all the junk mail and advertisements.  No, no, no! Get away from that trash can. You are throwing away THOUSANDS of dollars of FREE Education. Yes, pick it out!

Now that you are starting to collect your "TEXTBOOK", start analyzing the way ads are written.  No, not the words in general. Find the pattern, the feeling they create when you read them.  Sales are based on emotions.  What emotion you target will need to be followed by ways that comfort the emotion, to heal the emotion or to strengthen the emotion.  Everyone at one time has seen on TV the "Ronco" guy. Sold Ginsu knives, a dehydrator, the indoor rotisserie, the onion chopper, the Slice-O-Matic and more.  What does he do in every promotion? Stirs up FEELINGS!  How does he do that??? By asking key questions that make you say "been there, done that."  Then he goes in to show you "what" and "how he" will help you solve it.

So, start studying your new found "TEXTBOOK" and you'll be glad other companies sent you all of these FREE lessons.

Hello Greer,

How do you create columns on your webpage?

Let's say I want a matrix 3x3 for box ads. How?


Kenneth R Sword Jr

---------------- Response from Greer---------------------------------

Kenneth, you'd just need to copy the < tr> < /tr> section twice to get the extra grid rows you want there, as Allan's example only shows one row.

<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="10">

<tr valign="top">
<td width="100">Content For Left Column goes here</td>
<td>Content for center Column goes here</td>
<td width="100">Content for right column goes here</td>

<tr valign="top">
<td width="100">Content For Left Column goes here</td>
<td>Content for center Column goes here</td>
<td width="100">Content for right column goes here</td>

<tr valign="top">
<td width="100">Content For Left Column goes here</td>
<td>Content for center Column goes here</td>
<td width="100">Content for right column goes here</td>


This is what teh code for a 3x3 grid would look like using Allan's code there.


P.S. Here is an actual example of a small 2x3 grid for some text links I am playing with for my daughter's web site. Just rtclick/view source to see the code I used so far.


It might be interesting to set up a 3x3 grid like you're talking about and use a rotator to rotate ads in and out. Probably too complex to try and show on the forum here, but once you get your code set up I could help you with it off line if you like.

Radio & Media Advertising

Information on Radio, Print and TV Advertising? It's not the same as the Internet.

Alan Munro

[ Ask Alan a Question ] | [ Go To the Discussion ] | [ Send Alan a Message ]
Lets have a look at the point of a different kind of radio. This is one that has not to date been exploited. If one takes it we pay for TV and that there are 100ís of magazines in the world the one can only get if you are a member or have a subscription then why not radio!

Lets have a look at the point of a product the can only be obtained by membership or subscription. One should then get a very good product and one should have a say in what happens with it. Ok with a magazine itís a little difficult for all the members to start telling the head what to do, but then if the head makes a mistake one can let him/her know.

Now lets try this with radio seeing itís been done with TV for many years. Membership can do 2 things to help radio. The first it helps to cover the running costs which then in turn helps with the second point and that is now the radio station can all most run with out advertising. Take note I sad all most.

No media can work with out advertising as there are the nice things like prizes that have to be paid for and this is done with advertising. At the same time one must also take in to account that for membership to be kept low one must supplement that with advertising.

The big thing with membership radio is that...

God made such a beautiful World.

The Bright Colors and Aromatic Splendor of Flowers
The Cheerful Singing of the Birds and fluttering of their Wings while in flight
The Mountains which stand tall - overlooking the Wondrous Earth below
The Oceans, Rivers, and Streams with the sound of Rippling Water and the force of the high, Majestic Waves
The Beautiful, Clear Blue Sky with Sunlight that brightens our Days
The sound of the Rain beating against my Window Pane
The Rains that help our Flowers to grow and the Crops which prosper to feed the Hungry
The Dark Sky of the Night which is filled with Stars that sparkle like Diamonds
The Trees with their Branches swaying to and fro and tops reaching up to Heaven above
The Churches where People go to congregate and Worship the Lord

I see these things clearly in my mind, but, I am losing my Eyesight
I lift up my heart in Prayer to my Lord, and I hear His voice saying:
"Be not afraid - I will aid you in this plight."
I envision my Lord holding me in His arms - knowing that He will be my guiding Light.

Hello Folks!

Is there a cloud ten? I ask because I feel like I just went up a cloud. I've been on cloud nine for a while now because of all the great things happening at Adlandpro; people are really active and having a lot of fun here lately. Then Bogdan tells me he has chosen me as Goodwill Ambassador of AdlandPro. Well, that just pushed me on to cloud 10.

I am so honored to have had this bestow upon me especially by a person like Bogdan who I deeply respect and admire. Thank you so much Bogdan for honoring me in this way. I am truly grateful. I love the title because that is exactly what I have been trying to do here at AdlandPro and that is to welcome people, to cheer them up, to motivate them, and to give them hope. I have made so many great friends here; Iím the luckiest man in the world to be surrounded by so many good people. AdlandPro has been changing a lot lately and I like what I see. I hope you will all join me in creating a bigger and better neighborhood of people helping people. Thank you all for your support!

When designing a Web site, most web designers give a lot of attention to two major factors: the design (graphics and logos) and the content. But what about the website colors? This is one of the most important things to consider when designing your site. The colors of your Website are important because they will define the mood and the emotions of your visitors as well as reflect your identity and image branding.

Color as a symbolism. We say someone who is jealous is "Green with envy". Someone who is sad is said to be "Blue." When we are angry, we see red." Colors affect us psychologically.

They can stimulate our appetite or suppress it. They can make us happy, excited, angry or sad. Let's take a look at colors and what they may mean to your visitors.

Warm Colors: Red is one of the most powerful and attention-getting colors. Red symbolizes passion and fire, love and lust. It has been proven to raise blood pressure and cause perspiration. Red reflects energy and can motivate an individual to take action. It can also symbolize war, violence, blood, and aggression.

Do you read all your emails?
Today I remebered a situation, that got my ISP closed down, for a short time.

I was going thru my emails as usual,when I came across an email that looked ok, SO I cliked the link to see the business opportunity.

What I got was shut down!
For a week I could not figure out what was wrong with my Aol. So I finally called them. They proceeded to tell me I had 4 screen names, I told them I did not, or wasn't suppose to have.

In the course of our extended conversation, we figured out the last email that was sent to me. We also figured out, what had happened!

When I opened that email, it automatically sent the sender, my password to my Aol account. They logged in and set up new Screen Names and Started Spamming people, I had over 25,000 emails go out these accounts.

My name is Sam and I really could use some help with my website. Before I tell you the URL, I want to say that I'm not fishing for customers here. I have had my website up since November and have moved along fairly well, considering I was a total newbie when I started. I am getting several hundred hits on my site, with usually well over a hundred click throughs daily, but I'm not making any sales. Would you please take a look and see if you can suggest something to help. The URL is http://www.playswithgreys.com I would really appreciate any feedback anyone could give me.

Hi Sam,

I just ran across you post at my Forum and
took a quick look at your website.

I am going to give you my first impression
of what I saw and make a few suggestions.

People get caught in a trap of just thinking
that they are going to retail on the Net
and off they go with a website, listing
all the goodies for sale, etc.

You just have a static display out there not
even offering a free gift and remember in
sales the word FREE is the most powerful
word one can use.

Spruce it up a bit with a little color and
get a hold of some related businesses like
a company that sells animal charms, etc.

See how you can do some cooperative

advertising and always offer a special.

The Science of Advertising

How to GET your FREE AdlandPro advertising is discussed here. One-on-one assistance in getting your account ready to work for you.

It doesn't matter how great the product or service may be that you're promoting, it is all about your advertising, your marketing strategies, your targeted audience and most importantly, why are you advertising.

And do you know it's also knowing when NOT to ADVERTISE?

Odd, is it not, that knowing when NOT to ADVERTISE plays such an important role to your success, and I have met hundreds of people who did not know that secret and went broke because of it.

For an example, you don't sell bathing suits and sun screen in the winter season, you sell long-johns, gloves and hats. The same rule applies to your on- or off-line business, and it is those little secrets and access to the latest news that can make the difference between breaking-even or achieving wealth.

I hope you will gain from this discussion everything you need to slowly build your income streams into a ragging river of profits. Your focus should NOT be on making a million dollars or even a few extra hundred dollars -- your focus is about your very first sale, and then the next, and the next, and it continues until you realize hundreds of sales a day.

So if you are not 100% satisfied with your advertising, then you need to "stop" and "start" over with a different purpose. I can hear some of you saying under your breath, "I don't need to start over, I need to make what is working now a little better." If that is your thought, you really need to stop and start over with a different purpose because you cannot change something that is not working 100% right now.

Please, let me expand on that thought.

Don't set yourself up for disappointment of instant gains, but think and stay focused on what you can achieve today. You don't eat the steak in one bite, but small bites until you're finished. The same as planning your advertising and understanding what results you are looking for.

To set the stage....

Everything Related to Life after Retirement

Here's some information for those who may think they started to late to save for Retirement.

Life can throw you lots of curve balls. So if youíre age 50+ and just starting to think about saving for retirement, you still have time to get in the game. Good savings habits apply just as much now as they did earlier in life. Itís never too late to get ready for retirement. Itís only too late if you donít save at all.
Even if youíre only a few years away from your last day of work, every little bit that you can save counts. The following steps will get you off the bench and onto the playing field.

Set Goals and Estimate Your Expenses

First, decide how much money youíll need to live the retirement lifestyle you want. With good health, your retirement could last 30 years or more.
Ask yourself these questions: How much money will you need to pay bills in retirement? Do you want to travel? Whatís the cost of living where you plan to live? Will your mortgage be paid off? Once in retirement, youíll likely still have major responsibilities, such as medical and household expenses. What other debts do you need to think about? If you can, lighten your financial load by paying off credit card bills and loans now.
Your answers to these questions are important. They will help you decide how much money youíll need for the type of retirement lifestyle you want. By knowing how much money you can count on and how much you expect to spend, you can decide how much you need to save. Being honest with yourself about the value of your current assets and future retirement costs is critical to the retirement planning process. Financial experts typically say youíll need at least 70 percent of your pre-retirement income to live comfortably in retirement.

Understand Your Resources

Make a checklist of all of the sources of income you can count on. These may          include:
