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

I’m celebrating my 1st year anniversary this month as the Moderator of AdlandPro. :)
I was reminded because I am leaving for vacation again next week and I recalled
compiling issue #406 or #407 last year on my laptop at a balcony overlooking the
beach of the Corinthian Gulf! Sixty issues later, we have gotten to know each other a
lot better. I have made lots of new friends and learned a whole lot from all of you
who contributed to the Digest over the last year.
I want to thank you all for being such a loyal group of members to AdlandPro and to
this Digest and I hope that I have helped you a little bit over this past year too.

=============NEW Tidbit==========================

Are you automated?
================

I received a curious question from an AdlandPro friend a couple of days ago, who
thanked me for my letter and said he did not understand what I meant when I said
about having his business automated. As soon as I started writing this Digest, it
dawned on me that in issue #465 I said that the summer is a great time to advertise
especially if you have your business automated.

When you have been a long time in this business, you forget that there are many
people just becoming involved on the net that are just learning the ropes. Well, I
decided to correct that! So here is what we will do:
I need some help from the seasoned online marketers. How about helping my friend
out by giving him (and so many others like him) some advice about how they can
automate a large part of their online business? And if you are a newbie and have
questions, hey, don’t wait for me to read your mind! Pop them in here!!

Re: Are you investing in yourself? $500 worth?
From: Vitae Bergman

This is a subject close to my heart. Personal growth has been a theme in my life for
the longest time.

If I added up all the dollars I've put out over the past thirty-five years in books that
I've read, seminars I've attended, workshops in which I've participated--just to
scratch the surface, two more zeros could easily be added to the $500 mentioned.

About the cost of a Mercedes Benz.

I'm happy not to have this icon of an automobile. Inner peace and happiness (actually
the same state of being) I've worked toward assiduously. I've learned how to live in
the moment, not obsessing over past mistakes, not captivated by future anticipations.
I've learned the process of emptying the dross of my unconscious strategies.
Meditation and contemplative insight has brought me rewards no external glitz could
outshine.

So here I am in the field of Internet commerce offering a message--yes, invest in
learning how to be free. Come to know who you really are. The prize is greater than
all the money you can make.

Re: How much would I invest....
From: Jerome D'souza

I would judge from the saying "If what you have is not enough for your needs it is
your seed" and accordingly use part or all of the money on training myself to the
next level depending on how much I need for immediate expenses. You need to be
around tomorrow when the seed matures into a tree, right?

Come on people! I hate to see great questions go unanswered by our expert
members! Certainly there are members out there that a) have experience with blogs,
b) know exactly how to work a forum correctly and/or c) have a profound knowledge
of affiliate recruiting! These were all subjects we touched upon in the previous
Digest and I was sure my mailbox would be bursting at the seams today.
Hey, you don’t have to be an expert to post an answer or express an opinion, you
know! Your individual experience will be just as enlightening as a lecture by an
expert.

MLM vs. direct selling
From: Alan D Munro

Good Day everybody.

I have to ask this question and I do hope that there are good people out there that will
reply with a positive reply.

MLM vs. Direct Selling.

Please I need to know why people run very fast to MLM projects and when it is a
direct selling project then nobody is breaking down the front door???

I my case I have a club that helps every body to become a better person and for
sporting people to be winners every time. Now it works like this:
Mr X gets an other to join he will be paid 20% commission and when he gets the
next person to join he gets paid 20% comm. There is no down line or any MLM to
this club. So what is it that I am doing wrong because everybody is still running to
the MLM products??????

I do hope that this is posted and that I can get an answer.

Thanks

Alan

4 Effective Ways To Use Autoresponders To Increase Your Sales
From: Jean Lam

An autoresponder is a very powerful tool for any online business. Basically, an
autoresponder is used to ease your tasks. Automation is critical when running an
online business. Hence you won't need to do the tiring and boring manual tasks if
you automate your business.

An autoresponder simply sends backs a precomposed message to the recipient who
requested information from it by sending an email to this autoresponder address.

But autoresponders can be used for far more advanced tasks to increase your sales
for instance.

1. Use your autoresponder to publish an ezine

A nice function available in most autoresponders nowadays is the broadcast feature.

Every person who requests more information from your autoresponder e.g. to
subscribe is automatically added to your autoresponder database. Hence you will be
able to use the broadcast feature to publish your ezine and your subscribers in your
database will receive your newsletter automatically.

This is a low cost way to create mailing lists that your visitors can subscribe to
including your own ezine that you can use to effectively market your products.

Concentrate on making your ezine a source of valuable information for your
subscribers and you'll be able to create an ezine that your subscribers look forward to
reading and that increases your sales.

2. Use your autoresponder to deliver an email course

A very simple but yet powerful method of increasing your sales is to create an email
course that contains valuable information.

For eg if you are creating an email course about Internet marketing, you can write an
article that lists 7 Internet marketing methods.

Method 1 - Search Engines
Method 2 - Ezine Advertising
Method 3 - Joint ventures
Method 4 - Opt In Email
Method 5 - Affiliate Programs
Method 6 - Article Writing
Method 7 - Link Partnerships

Then put every marketing method in your autoresponder on a 7-day cycle. Hence
every person who requests this course will receive each lesson for a period of 7 days.

In each method, try to find products, be it affiliate products or your own products
that are related to this marketing technique and include a link.

For example if you own an ebook on how to write articles to promote your business,
you can include a link to that product in method 6.

3. Use your autoresponder to provide a report

Reports can be articles that you can easily deliver via an autoresponder. If you have
an article called "7 Powerful Internet Marketing Tactics To Promote Your Online
Business", you can easily use it as a report.

Include the links to the products to complement each method.

4. Use your autoresponder to promote your articles

Autoresponders are very effective ways to promote your articles along with your
website.

You can make your articles on your site or in the emails that you send to ezine
editors to consider your recent article for publication available by autoresponder.
You can say something like.

All my other articles available for reprint at
articles@autorespondername.com 

Make your articles available by autoresponder along with your publishing guidelines.
If you've written lots of articles, make a master list of your articles available by
autoresponder that lists all of your articles along with their autoresponder addresses.

This can provide you with a terrific way to get your articles published on a regular
basis by ezine publishers and webmasters who enjoy your writing.

Autoresponders should form part of your Internet business. Without them, your
business will suffer.

Consider an autoresponder as your own 24hr marketing machine.

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

Believe In It To Succeed In It Is Only Part Of The Story, by: Judy Thompson
=======================================================

Experience can be a great teacher, but the learning process can be very costly.
Believing in your offer is important. In addition, finding what to promote and how to
promote it is crucial to your success!

It is a well-known fact that if you believe in something, it is easier to win others over
to what you believe in than if your belief system is not strong. Children often are
able to sway their parents opinions, or politicians may win our votes by
communicating the why behind an issue.

With a business, it is easier to sell a product if you have used a product that has
helped you in some way. This is true, also, if you are a distributor for a network
marketing company. If you have used and benefited from your company’s products,
you will be enthusiastic and be able to share this with others.

Don’t Jump In Too Fast!

With an internet business, however, whether network marketing or other kind of
business, things are not always as they appear. You need to go a lot deeper in your
knowledge then just the possibly hyped-up “facts” given on someone’s website!

Don’t make the mistake of believing in something too strongly, too quickly! Like
falling in love after just one date --- rarely works out for the long haul --- so wisdom
would say get to know him or her better before making a commitment. But once you
are satisfied that the person is someone you want to make a commitment to, don’t
quit when a few things about your relationship are not going as well as you thought.
Likewise, once you decide that a business is right for you, don’t quit if it doesn’t
move along as smoothly as you had hoped for.

Look For A Stable Company

If you are looking at a company, make sure of its stability before you invest much
money. Has it been in business for at least a couple years? According to the Direct
Selling Association, only one company in 347 will survive even the first two years!
You don’t want to spend your time and money promoting something that has a high
risk of failure.

Yes, I’ve been there and done that! I listened to the “get in early” to succeed hyped-
up false statements. Not a one of those companies ever survived very long!

How Will You Build Your Business?

O.K., so perhaps, you’ve done your homework and have located several companies
that have been in business long enough and are not likely to fail. So … how are you
going to build a business and make some money? Look at the kind of support system
they offer. Learn about the people who will probably be a part of your “upline” if it’s
a network marketing company. Just who is it that heads up this way that is supposed
to help you succeed? Is there a phone number given where you can call and talk to a
“live” person? Can you ask questions by e-mail? How committed to this program is
your prospective enroller? If he is in a dozen programs, he probably isn’t going to
help you much. Will he be here today and gone tomorrow?

Even with what sounds like great support, how successful have people been that are
using their support system? Is training available for you? Do the company and the
support system offer conference calls and online training where you can learn more?

Another Important Question For Internet Marketers

And maybe one of the most important questions in internet marketing for the
majority of us who are not super marketers, or have a tremendous amount of time
available would be this: does your support system offer an automated way to get
qualified prospects to visit your website? That is the hardest part for most people to
do --- getting qualified prospects to tour their website. If your support system not
only provides you with a great website, but actually can bring people to it, with some
of them joining your program, then you have the duplicable system that is absolutely
necessary for success in network marketing!

When all those pieces of the puzzle are put together, then you have good reason to
believe that you can be successful and believe in what you are doing.

One final note --- most likely your invitation to join something will come in the form
of “make money with our program.” So usually you’ll see some kind of support
system before you learn much about the company being promoted. Please use
caution when looking at the various offers. You may wish to print out this article to
use to help you analyze any offer in front of you. Yes, the wrong choices can be
costly and lead to disappointments. Hopefully, this article will help you avoid those
mistakes.

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

History of the Internet
==================


In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com, did take
unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman,
broad of shoulder and long of leg.

Indeed, she had been called Amazon Dot Com.

She said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why doth thou travel far from town to town
with thy goods when thou can trade without ever leaving thy tent?" And Abraham
did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but
simply said, "How, Dear?"

And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send
messages saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath
the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's
Pony Stable (UPS)."

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums.
The drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he
had at the top price, without ever moving from his tent. But this success did arouse
envy.

A man named Maccabia did secret himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused
of insider trading. And the young man did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the
greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich
Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short.

And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound
of drums, that no one noticed that the real riches were going to the drum maker, one
Brother William of Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land. And
indeed did insist on making drums that would work only with Brother Gates'
drumheads and drumsticks.


Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others."
And as Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came to be known
"eBay" he said, "we need a name that reflects what we are," and Dot replied, "Young
Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."

"YAHOO", said Abraham. And that is how it all began, It wasn't Al Gore after all.
