Joke of the Day

Word from Moderator
------------------------------

By the time you receive this issue, the Olympic flame will be lit in the Athens Olympic
stadium and the athletes will be starting to prove what they are worth. Proving their worth
is not a privilege and duty given only to athletes, however. Each and every one of us has to
prove what we are worth every day, completing in our own private Olympics arena called
"life". Proving ourselves starts early in life and never stops. We must prove we are good
students, then good breadwinners, good parents, good spouses, good and wise elderly folk.
The stakes are high all the way, the hurdles sometimes insurmountable, it is not rare that
one of us stumbles and falls and is either carried out of the "field" or manages to pick
him/herself up again and continues, panting, to the finish line.
In the arena of life, there are no gold medals, no wreathes of olive branches - only the
knowledge that we have fought the good fight, ran the good race and given all we could.
Yet we can still learn something from the world's great athletes that will be competing for
the ultimate prize over the next couple of weeks. We can learn that it takes unwavering
dedication, hard work, and the iron will to keep on going if we are to achieve our goals.

P.S. As I was preparing this newsletter, a terrible shadow fell upon the Athens Olympics as
two of our best athletes are under investigation for not presenting themselves for doping
control tests and subsequently becoming involved in an accident. Everyone here is still
waiting for the final decision of the Disciplinary Committee right now and agonizing over
it. Still wearing the rose-colored glasses I put on last week, I believe that there will be a
logical explanation for everything that happened. On the other hand, I believe firmly in
drug-free athletics and in the exemplary punishment of anyone trying to "improve upon
nature" for the sake of competition (although the effort to "improve upon nature" is not a
phenomenon limited to sports!) The jury is still out, let's hope for the best.

Re: About MLM: to Philip
From: Bob Teske

Philip:

I don't know if your reply was directed to me, or what.  If it was, then I commend you for
your due diligence.  Granted, all mlm programs are not the same, however, I do recommend
that you seriously investigate the mlm programs that you decide to get involved with.  I
wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors - now and in the future.

Sincerely,

Bob Teske

RE: About MLM's - To Everyone who responded and commented
Bob Teske

To: Everyone who responded and commented to my post:

I want to thank all of you who read, responded and commented on my post.
Each of you had valid responses, and I greatly appreciate your candidness and your
feedback.  A lot of you have given me something to think about.

I will be updating my reports as I continue to investigate the different mlm programs,
home-business opportunities, etc., that are out there.

A lot of your responses, as I have said, are valid and definitely have potential to be
expanded upon further.

Allow me to give you all a compliment, if I may.  In my opinion, you all would probably
make for a fantastic "master-mind" group for any company you chose to associate
yourselves with.  You all have a talent for cutting to the chase and expressing what you
have on your mind.  And I appreciate that.

I wish all of you the best of luck in all of your endeavors, whatever they may be -- now and
in the future.

Sincerely,
Bob Teske

Re: Traffic Exchanges
From: Tony Tezak

Hi Cindy,

Let's see if I can answer your questions.

Yes, I strongly recommend the 5-Star rated traffic exchanges.  These ratings are based on
100s of hours of surfing, tracking the hits, and my dealings with the support of the
exchanges.  Have I missed some good traffic exchanges?  Probably.

I cannot speak to the quality of MPAM.  I have never been a member.

Lead Capture pages work the best.  Again, they must be short, simple and to the point.  The
idea is to capture email addresses to send them details of your service/product/program.

Most of my coffee downline came directly from traffic exchanges.  I used the company web
site, but that was at the beginning and the page will become less effective with time.  Your
pages must be fresh and usually are only good for 45-90 days.

Traffic exchanges must be surfed on a regular basis.  Of course, the more time you spend
surfing... the more effective the advertising results.  A person should set aside a regular
time to surf each day.  It is important to spend the time... be it 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours
or more a day.
Make a schedule. surf exchanges 1, 2 and 3 on Mondays; exchanges 4, 5, and
6 on Tuesdays, etc.

Most affiliate program sites are only good for a short time.  After seeing program XYZ's
site hundreds of times, a person is probably not going to spend any time on it.  You're better
off making a Splash Page or a Lead Capture page for your affiliate programs... make it
personal... post your name, photo, or something to set it apart from all the others.

A Splash Page is usually a quick hitting page and you link your join page or affiliate page
to it.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

Re: What am I doing wrong
From: Mike Towle

Jeff,

The first (and only) thing I could find wrong is the url you supplied. You
typed:

www.chandlersbooksnthings

Is this a .com? When I tried that, all I got was a template of some sort with none of the
fields filled in.

As a result, I don't know anything about what you are selling, how you are presenting it, or
what you are doing at all. Give us the complete url and maybe you will get some answers.

Hi Jeff, I assumed you paid for your Ad asking for help.
Jeff, you might want to "CHECK YOUR LINKS" after posting an Ad. You said that you
could not make money? Well, if no one can contact you, then, nobody can find you!

PS: Come on Jeff, "haste makes waste."

Any comments?
From: Les Szancer

I had this site "rejigged' by a mate of mine, about 2 months ago, and am now averaging
about 1 signup for my free offer a day. But sales of my home study course are only
averaging 3 a month. I know from my experience many people [maybe not on this site], are
interested in this topic. I am in a traffic exchange, but don't seem to be getting anything out
of it. Have dabbled in webrings. Bought various "get instant' people to your site services. I
have just started a mini e-news group, I have a go at most things, that I think might help.
Am I missing something so obvious to other people and not me? My site is
www.blueribbonoptions.com .  I almost forgot, I also am in google adwords and overture
PPC. My site rated around 1.2 million on Alexa, last month. So I am getting a reasonable
number of visitors, just not a reasonable number of sales. Any comments greatly
appreciated.

Regards
Les.

Adding E-Books on my site
From: Shirley Turetsky

I have a few e-books I'd like to give away just for visiting and/or signing up for my
newsletter. What is the best way to do this? Should I have them e-mail me for the ebook? If
I was to do this, how do I make sure they can download it? How would I place them on my
site for them to instantly download? If anyone knows how I can do this, I would be grateful
if you could help me figure this out.

Thoughts are things
From: Richcruise Liu

Every human being who reaches the age of understanding of the purpose of money wishes
for more of it. But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, planning
definite ways and means to acquire riches and backing those plans with persistence that
doesn't recognize failure will bring riches.

The method by which a desire for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent is:

1) Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. Not a vague general term, but
an exact amount.
2) Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for that amount of money.
3) Establish a definite date by which you intend to possess the amount of money you desire.
4) Create a definite plan for carrying out that desire and begin at once to put that plan into
action.
5) Write a clear, concise statement of the amount, by when and your plan for how you will
achieve it.
6) Read your written statement aloud each day-when you arise in the morning, in the
middle of the day and retiring for the night. As you read, visualize yourself already having
achieved your goal.

A Blonde Miracle
===============

A blonde had just totaled her car in a horrific accident.
Miraculously, she managed to pry herself from the wreckage without a
scratch and was
applying fresh lipstick when the state trooper arrived.

"My gosh" the trooper gasped. "Your car looks like an accordion that was
stomped on by an elephant. Are you OK ma'am?"

"Yes officer, I'm just fine!" the blonde chirped.

"Well, how in the world did this happen?" the officer asked as he surveyed the wrecked car.

"Officer, it was the strangest thing!" the blonde began. "I was driving
along this road when
from out of nowhere this TREE pops up in front of me. So I swerved to the right, and there
was another tree! I swerved to the left and there was ANOTHER tree! I swerved to the right
and there was another tree! I swerved to the left and there was ........."

"Uh, ma'am," the officer said, cutting her off. "There isn't a tree on

this road for 30 miles.
That was your air freshener swinging back and forth!"
