There’s nothing quite like getting something you want, need, or can make good use of. That’s especially true when the item is free, absolutely free.

I mean no out-of-pocket cost. Nada bucks. It costs you nothing. That’s free. You don’t have to sit through a boring, lengthy webinar. Or give up your email address and go through numerous up-sell pages. Free is best when you go to a website and get the goods.

Well, here’s my gift to you today. These free tools serve me well. They are useful and I use them often. You can upgrade to paid versions if you wish. I’ve done that when absolutely necessary. Otherwise I go with the free version. Click on the name and go directly to the web site.

Can You Actually Make Money While Sleeping?

You can make money while you sleep.

Sure, you can make money online while you sleep. Many of us do. However, you will not do that immediately by buying some big-promise money-making software or signing up to a money-making program.

Either of those things usually make money only for the people selling them.

Those who make money while sleeping have built businesses that generate income over different time zones all hours of the day. They are affiliate marketers, usually. That’s the easiest method for getting into an Internet business.

Others may be part of an enterprise like MOBE (My Online Business Enterprise). MOBE is a franchise operation. Just like buying a fast food franchise you buy into MOBE and make that a foundation for your Internet business.

I recommend that you learn more about both methods – affiliate marketing and MOBE. Each benefits from a common skill set that’s easy to put into motion.

MOBE is unique and very successful. Learn more by clicking on this link. MOBE guides you through many aspects of making money online with a personal coach, 21-step training program, and many opportunities to meet other members of the MOBE family at local functions and exotic locations.

EASY TRAINING TO INCREASE SALES REVENUE

 

It’s easy to get your sales people beyond product bullet points.  Here’s a simple method I used when Director of Marketing and Sales at a networking division of a major aerospace company.

When creating a telemarketing center with out call people very skilled in selling by phone we quickly learned, the sales prompt sheets did not cover information the customer wanted.  Many businesses fall prey to this trap.  That is telling the customer what we think is important rather than share what the customer wants to know.

We solved the problem and elevated in house-sales morale by having staff record questions they could not answer.  Our engineering Read the rest of this entry

6 tips for creating content to capture short attention spans

 

Do emails and posts keep you interested. Or do your eyes glaze over reading posts and emails?

M-E-G-O.

Mine Eyes Glaze Over was a common classroom malady of mine. I’m a bottom-line person with the attention span of a gnat.

“Get to the point!”, cries out in my head.

Hemingway wrote short sentences and paragraphs of a couple of lines. And Earnest wrote at the 5th grade level. Many English professors said I wrote in choppy sentences. Some appreciated my writing.

My writing fans gave me better grades.

Those favoring what made laborious reading did not.

The Internet is the cause of poor reading and writing habits, some say. Communicate well and you’ll succeed online. No matter what your topic or goal.

The written word communicates ideas. The Internet connects people with content. We must remove barriers between us and our audience. That’s the quickest path to making money online.

Here’s an interesting article from Search Engine Watch. Please read how you can communicate better. Getting to the point of your post and keeping eyes on the page is ultimate SEO.

Is Social Media Good for Business?

social media 3

So you have a website, do you also need social media?

Yes, you do.

It’s good for business.

I’m active on virtually all popular social media sites. Each has its unique user types with some overlap. Users favor one social media over others. They may be active on several. But they favor one and spend more time with it.

I post to the most popular. This allows me to repurpose content. No reason to post only original content for each site. Simple headline changes are a must. Reworking some wordage is important.

These simple things give me better standing with Google and ranking. Google wants fresh, unique content. Taking a moment or two – and that’s all it takes – gets the job done. Google’s web crawling spiders like change to content, no matter how small.

I like social media’s immediacy. Something comes to mind and I post. I use Buffer. It allows me to schedule posts to several social sites at one time. I set social media posts for a week at a time.

There’s a strong return from social media. That’s especially true when followers share posts. The reach is exponential. I shared an item on Google+ that astounded me with the response.

Granted Google+ is not a priority. Many expect it to go away any hour. But this one graphic with a product link got nearly 20,000 clicks! I learned this only when checking my stats for that product and traced a jump to Google+.
