Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

PayPerClick is Now Available in the Adlandpro Community Classifieds!

This is quite honestly one of the most effective ways to advertise. Your ad can be viewed tens of thousands of times with no actual click to your site and it costs you nothing! You only pay when someone clicks on your ad and visits your site and that cost is controlled by you!!

The PPC system works hand-in-hand with your regular classified ads, and is an effective way to promote them. You can promote as many or as few of your classified ads as you like.

PPC stands for "Pay Per Click". Just as the name says, you only get charged when someone clicks your ad, so you only pay for results and never for just having your ad displayed.

What's the catch?
You might be thinking that setting your own price is too good to be true, and that there must be a catch. Well, there is no catch. You just have to remember that you might not be the only person interested in advertising in a given city. There will often be competition. This is why we call it a bid. The more you decide to pay per click, the more often your advertisement will be displayed. It's as simple as that.

Of course, due to our high traffic, your ads will have many thousands of opportunities to get displayed each hour, so even a relatively small bid amount will get you exposure.

Personal Success in Business - The 10 Steps!

By Julie McGloin
                         Being aware of your own approach to Business is the key to your success. How aware are you of your own response to challenges? How well do you manage yourself? What kind of 'leader' are you for your Business? How disciplined are you?

Do you even KNOW the 10 Steps to Personal Success in Business?

Believe it or not, this is an area that many business owners ignore and dismiss. They simply go from day-to-day until something happens to make them stand up and take notice. Being aware of how your mind works is an important foundation for growth. As a business owner and decision maker, it's your responsibility to be completely aware of every aspect of your business.

Here are the 10 Steps to Personal Success in Business.


This is where you don't know anything and don't do anything. Things just happen. You live each day as if you photocopied it from the day before. You're at the bottom of the ladder to success.


You're operating on animal instinct. It's fight or flight. You simply react to whatever comes your way without thinking. This is a very stressful place to be.

Step 3 - GROUP

This is where most people are, yet it's the most dangerous step. It's where you follow everyone else - the masses. It's comfortable here. You seek reassurance and guidance from peers, family and friends. The thought of breaking away is scary. Maybe you've had a great idea to break out and do something innovative but when you mention it to a network group, friends or family for their opinion, the response may go something like: "Are you kidding?", "Haven't you seen the news?", "I can't see that working!". So, you put the one thing that can TRANSFORM your life back in your pocket, agree with them that it's a bad idea and stay as you are. You're back in your comfort zone, feeling safe. You feel relieved, thinking everyone else is right - after all, you think to yourself, who would have supported if you had taken that next step?

It might be comfortable being with the group, but it holds you back. When you move out of the group, it's the best step you can take!


You want to BE more, DO more and HAVE more. How many times have you aspired to do something but done nothing about it? Have you ever made a resolution then forgotten about it? Can you remember a time when you used to think about doing something but never got around to it?

Having an aspiration is good, but without action, it doesn't amount to anything.


Now, you step forward into your future. But wait! You look around and then panic because you're on your own. Being a leader can be lonely and when you look behind and see the group, it's easier to step back into that old comfort zone. How many times has that happened to you?

At last! This is the key step. It's when you take congruent action AND MOVE FORWARD. When you have the discipline to do this, you know you've taken the most important step towards your personal success. You no longer hear those people calling you back. All you focus on is your future, pulling you forward.

You've decided to do something positive and have taken the ACTION to do it.


Almost immediately, by taking decisive action your knowledge increases. You learn new things and gain the confidence to continue moving forward. Others follow you, perhaps for the first time. You're now the leader. You gain the experience of having taken action and this experience encourages you to continue going forward, gaining experience of new situations all the time.


Now it gets really interesting...With your new discipline and growing experience, you learn how to respond, rather than just react as previously. When you're confronted with an issue, instead of a quick reaction or hiding from it, you evaluate it, test & measure different options, and then respond with the best solution.

Step 9 - 'KAIZEN'

This is the Japanese principle of constant-and-never-ending-improvement or "ongoing change for the better". Your focus is on continuous improvement. This step is the natural state of successful people. It applies to every aspect of your business and your life.


Finally, you display the characteristics of success. You Plan, Do and then Review. You've learned how taking action produces results and how the right decisions give you the right results. You're ready to start creating new steps of your own!

So, do you recognize the steps above?

Perhaps not. After all, most people are stuck in the Group level and don't know there's anything above them. Or maybe you've already stepped out and are taking action. You may even be further ahead. However, unless you've made it to the DISCIPLINE stage, the best you can ever be is in constant hesitation. This robs you of time, your most valuable non-recyclable resource.

Challenge yourself! How are you going to move up a level? How do you get away from following the masses? All it takes is just one step at a time.

Find out who the successful people are in your industry and find out what makes them successful. They are the few going in the opposite direction from the masses.

Study them. Follow them.

Remember, the power to your Personal Success in Business is developing yourself personally.

These 10 Steps are just one element of the 7 Principles of Business Success, developed from years of studying the best business models worldwide to create an easy model to follow.

Unique Selling Point: Why Should People Listen to You?

By Roberta Gerrick

There is no lack of gurus and experts on the internet. Take a look in any industry represented online and you will find numerous websites and blogs declaring that they are your number one source for information about the topic at hand. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. In fact, if you want to increase blog traffic and develop a dependable readership then you must position yourself as an expert in your field.

However, the number one question you need to ask before you spend the time and energy building your website is why should people listen to you?

What is the Value of You?

I've talked before about the value of knowing who your target market is and ensuring that you are giving them what they want. However, this goes a little bit above and beyond that. Let's face it, you could probably swing a cat and hit at least ten other experts offering the same information you are providing the consumers in your market. What makes your advice better than your competition? What's your edge?

What's your unique selling point?

A unique selling point is something that makes you stand out from the crowd. It's something people are not able to get from anyone else and the main reason your customers want to do business with you. It is why certain bloggers are able to command thousands of blog readers while others offering same exact information can only commandeer a few dozen. If you want to increase blog traffic, then you need to figure out what your unique selling point is and market that as a benefit to your readership.

For example, take two different types of soda: Pepsi and generic. Even though generic sodas are cheaper (sometimes as much as 50% less than brand name sodas) people still purchase Pepsi by the caseload. Why? Because of the taste.

Pepsi's unique selling point is the way it tastes. That is something that cannot be replicated in generic brand sodas no matter what they may say on their packaging. When people purchase a Pepsi, they are confident they are going to get the taste they are after. That confidence dips significantly when they consider the generic brand. Even if the two brands are sitting side by side with an obvious price difference favoring the generic soda, people will pay more for the Pepsi.

Likewise, people will pay more attention to you if you have a unique selling point they like that they can't get anywhere else.

Tips for Discovering Your Unique Selling Point

Discovering your unique selling point requires some research and some hard thinking about what you are truly offering your clients.

* Look at your top competition. How are they different from you? How are they similar? Read their blog posts. What posts are getting the most comments and why? Read their testimonials. What are the customers saying they love most about doing business with them? If the clients are reachable, you could even go undercover and ask for a recommendation and see what they say.

* Evaluate your target market. What things are most important to them? What problems are they trying to solve with the products, services, or information available in your industry? Is there a need that is not being fulfilled?

* Determine what is unique about your company. What are your values? What problems do you solve for your customers? How are your products better than your customers? If you are offering the same exact thing, how can you increase the value of them?

Finding your unique selling point may involve running with an idea and then fine tuning it over time. It is worth the effort, though, if you want to increase traffic to your website and develop a group of customers who love you and your business to the exclusion of everyone else.

Common Technical Questions

Why am I being charged in Canadian Dollars? I don't live in Canada?

Adlandpro is a Canadian company and all credit card charges on our end are expressed in Canadian Dollars. This information is provided before the final ordering step and in the email confirming the purchase.

The prices on our site are quoted both in US and Canadian Dollars. The amount expressed in Canadian dollars will be automatically converted by the cardholder's credit card company into local currency. In the case of US customers, the amount charged in Canadian Dollars will be approximately the amount which we quote in USD. For customers coming from other countries, the process is the same, we just don't display those prices on our site.

Quoted US pricing is a fair indication for all customers regardless of where the country of origin.
