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

I don’t know if you have noticed (as I have) how exciting things have become in
AdlandPro lately. Not a day passes that I don’t get invitations to forums, invitations
to add more friends to my list, notifications of people visiting my websites and so on
and so on. For me, this signals that this program has become a HUGE success.
People WANT what AdlandPro offers, they use the services and they are being
helped by it. And isn’t that what a good program should be all about?

=============Food For Thought=======================

=============NEW Tidbit==========================
How much?
=========

Today, I thought we’d discuss a “difficult” subject: the subject of money.

When the Internet first came into being, it was a virtual Paradise… all information,
resources, access etc. were f’ree for everyone who wished to use them. Tons and tons
of things to do, to learn, to use – all for f’ree!

Then, some people thought that hey! This is a good environment to do business in!
(which it is!) But business – any type of business – has costs and the objective of
profit. So, a “dirty” word for some comes into the picture… a snake in Paradise…
“money”.

Now, I don’t believe money is a dirty word, especially when I’m making it! As a
matter of fact, I believe that you can’t make money unless you invest some money.
And this is only fair… after all, why should anyone give you their hard-earned
money when you are not ready to risk some of your own?

But I was wondering – HOW MUCH do you believe is a fair amount to invest per
month to get your online business off the ground? $2000? $500? $50? Give me a
number and a reason please.

Re: How easy is it for you to think and act positively?
From: Judith Tramayne-Barth

You asked, "How easy is it for you to think and act positively?"

Extremely easy and what makes my life a total blast! I have fun every day doing
what I want on the Internet because I know the KEY to manifesting all the good
things is -- the Universe is a **Yes** Machine.

The native Americans had a saying -- "Walk what you talk."

In other words, you project what you get. Project negative or crappy thoughts, you
get a crappy life. Project the opposite and that comes true also.

The Universe is giving you what you want. The **YES** machine works both
ways. It's called the Law of Attraction.

For Instance:

I love to write and paint. So I made the Intention (Affirmation, positive thought –
whatever you want to call it) to do this on the Internet. I also said I do not want to
spend hundreds of hours of marketing so I also put this out to the Universe.

The results -- I have not done any marketing in a year and my logs show my unique
visitors have steadily increase each month (15,000 in May) so that I now have over
140,000 visitors (not hits) come to my site in the last year.

Also by being positive, I AM calm, peaceful and doing everything in ease, peace, fun
and joy.

You might say this is a Pollyanna approach but it isn't. I AM merely manifesting
what I want.

Everyone can do this -- change your thought, change your life. Is it easy at first?
Heck no. Because it's been ingrained that we have to "suffer or struggle."

Well NO we don't. The Law of Attraction (which is what Quantum Physics is now
proving) is based on energy. Just as the Law of Gravity is real so is the Law of
Attraction (like attracts like).

Crappy thoughts, crappy life. Good thoughts, good life. Why? Because thoughts are
energy.

I could go on and on about this but this post is much too long now (LOL)

So it's your choice and I hope you choose your thoughts wisely. (smile).

Re: NOT! Making money on line
From: Janet A Armstrong

Georgia,

I am in a very different type of business that I have no doubt would be interesting to
you. I am an independent affiliate in a company that is fun, exciting and the business
end of it sells itself. The parent company has been in business for approximately 8
years. It is all about Video Email. If you are interested, please send me an email
with the best time to call you or visit: http://www.vmdinfostorm.com/janarme 
or
http://www.helloworld.com/janarme

The infostorm link is a lead capture page. If you fill in the information and like what
you see, that's great. If you don't think it's for you and don't wish to receive further
info, either send me an email or call me at 337-392-2928 and I will remove your info
from the system. The Hello World Video Email site has only been open about 6
months. So this is truly a ground floor opportunity.

I hope to hear from you if this is right for you and/or if the timing is right for you. If
not, I wish you much success in finding something that you believe in and that is
right for you.


----------------------------------------------------------------
Best,
Janet A Armstrong

Re: Blog advertising
From: William jaroske

Tom Falco Mentioned

"We love blogs. We have found that we get better results through blogs because they
are read. The problem with newsletters these days is that most end up in the spam
folder or are deleted without being read."

You have a point on this trend that well end up surpassing the old ways of generating
traffic to your site ten fold. People have tried Safelists, Traffic exchanges, and FFA
link farms. Many have grown tired of them.

I don't think the popularity of Blogs will fade out and flop such as the FFA sites did.

=============== New Discussions =======================

MODERATOR: OK, inspiration and/or problems seem to have run dry recently in
the Digest members, so I went to spy on what is being talked about in the Forums.
Following are some interesting discussions I “eavesdropped” on. How about mixing
it up with these folks?

--------------------------------------------
It’s not surprising that the most popular forum is “Quote of the Day”
http://community.adlandpro.com/forumShow.aspx?ForumID=861 by our very own
CEO Bodan Fiedur. Bogdan publishes a new inspiring and thought provoking quote
every single day, and he has even made available to us his own book of quotes so
that we can comment upon it before he goes out and starts selling it for $19.95. As
far as I can see, the book of quotes is still available for free download here:
http://www.adlandpro.com/downloads/qotd.zip 

----------------------------------------------

Rapidly rising is the Forum “What Makes You a Likeable Person”
http://www.adlandpro.com/directad/forumShow.aspx?ForumID=3371 by Emmanuel
Ebeh, a subject in which we discussed last week. The newest item of interest here is
the new thread, “Alcohol and Drug Addictions: Identified Reason For Relapse”. Go
take a look and become involved.

------------------------------------------------

A subject close to my heart is discussed in “Help! I’m a Newbie!”
http://community.adlandpro.com/forumShow.aspx?ForumID=839 the Forum by
Rebecca Beasley. Following is what I thought was an interesting post I “swiped”
from in there (Hope you don’t mind, Rebecca!). Enjoy!

“Rule #1 for newbies! Realize Success does not come overnight nor usually with in
the first 6 months. Especially if you are just starting to get your internet knowledge.

Rule #2 Do not try and build Rome in one week. (You have to erect your first
affiliate building (promotion) before you can build an empire). So please don't join 3
dozen programs to promote at the same time, unless you have a small army to help
you.

Rule #3 Now this one is hard for most as so many newbies are attempting to earn
some money on the internet because they're current incomes aren't meeting their
needs and many are even desperate for the extra cash flow. The secret is to Think
like a Buyer Not a Seller. Ask YOURSELF, Would I buy this product? Why? How
does it benefit me? How do I think this product or service would benefit someone
else? Most important of all, "Do I Believe in this Product?" Well it’s the most
important question in my opinion as I like to get a good night’s sleep.
If you can answer none of the questions or have no belief, then make sure you are
not breaking,

Rule #4 Never be so desperate for the sale that you sacrifice the customer
relationship you have or are just building.
A satisfied customer will tell several friends, a dissatisfied will tell ALL of his
friends. Catch the Point?

I guess these really shouldn't be called rules, but tips as Internet marketing is so wide
a subject and so versatile.

Lastly, and a TIP I stress, whether you promote a single affiliate program or a
gizallion, is get organized, organized, organized!

Hope this helps

Site review request - http://marthasgourds.com 
From: Martha Bloom

I was hoping for some critics to give me some guidance with my site. I used to be
high in the search engines with some of my keywords but have really dropped down
and don't know if it is my new site or not. It is not anywhere near what I want it to
be but need some suggestions on where to go from here.

====================GUEST ARTICLE =====================

The Number One Tried and Tested Method For Exploding Your Ezine
Subscriptions, by Tracey Meagher
===================================================

We all know how cagey and stubborn prospects can be and we know that only a tiny
percentage will buy our products the first time they see them. We all know that the
only way to convince savvy prospects to buy is by building trust with them and that
the single most effective way of building trust is by getting our visitors to subscribe
to our newsletters.

So, if signing up prospects to our newsletter is so vital to making sales why do most
of us keep our subscription invitations tucked away in the margins of our websites
where they can very easily be overlooked or ignored. And if signing up prospects is
so vital to our sales why do we place our invitations to sign in those annoying pop-
ups that prospects want to close before they've even read the fantastic deal we're
trying to offer them!

If you're serious about exploding your newsletter subscriptions and I'm mean
increasing them by up to 400%, read on. The method I'm about to tell you is so
simple and easy to implement you'll be amazed that you hadn't thought of it yourself
before.

To achieve the kind of subscriptions that Internet business people dream of, you'll
need to take two simple steps. First, you need to increase the amount of real estate on
your site dedicated to capturing visitors and no, I don't mean creating bigger, in-
your-face subscription boxes. The second thing you need to do is entice visitors to
sign up by harnessing the power of audio. I can already hear the gasps but with so
many easy to use tools available right now, adding audio to your site is nothing to get
uptight about!

I'll explain what I mean! Tucking your subscription box away in the corner of you
sites forces your single most effective sales tools to compete for your visitor's
attention with all the other information you have on your site, links, banners, ads and
content! Unfortunately, the competition can prove stiff and you don't always succeed
in grabbing the attention you require. Visitors get ready to click away from your site
without having even noticed the invitation to subscribe. When this happens, you
might implement your back-up plan, the exit pop-up. In a last bid effort you try to
entice users to subscribe before they leave by throwing a pop-up at them. Did you
know that 80% of Internet users find pop-up's annoying and that last thing you want
is a visitor leaving your site experiencing a negative emotion!

What you need to do is dedicate your landing page to subscription signups. It may
sound a little crazy but if you place a subscription invitation on your homepage and
combine this with a compelling audio message describing to your visitors all the
great stuff they will receive when they sign up to your newsletter, you'll find people
warming to you quicker than you ever thought possible.

Recently, I came across an example of this technique done to perfection on Paul
Colgan's website. Paul is the Affiliate Marketing Guy. When landing on the
homepage of Paul's website, you are greeted with a personal audio message from
Paul explaining the two types of newsletters he offers and the benefits of signing up
to each. His message is not at all pushy. It's informative and very compelling. Using
an audio message on the homepage personalizes Paul's site in a way that can't be
with any other technique. Without the audio, Paul's invitation on the homepage to
sign up to his newsletters would seem empty and many would click away before
entering the site. With the audio Paul has transformed his landing page into a
subscription magnet.

Go on ... give it a try for yourself!

================JOKE OF THE DAY==================

Calling In Sick
============

Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The
union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract's sick-leave
provisions.

One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the
morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "called in sick
yesterday!"

There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just
won a local golf tournament with an excellent score.

The silence in the room was broken by a union negotiator.

"Wow," he said. "Just think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn't been
sick!"
