Quote of the day: “Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon”
Hello, guys! I am back. It’s been a long and rather exhaustive summer and now I am trying to pickup my efforts where I left them.
I have made a video in two parts. The actual footage has been shot months ago but I did not have enough skills to make it into something usable.
The reason I have started doing a hobby video was the fact that nearly all of my fellow IM (an overwhelming majority anyway, including myself) has been so much obsessed with their marketing efforts they could hardly have time to live a little… So, I would like to call the reason behind all this something like that – Let’s Not Forget Why we are all here…
The real reason behind the IM effort for most people I know is quantity and quality of their free time.
Doing whatever warms their hearts that is.
Now I will try embedding my YouTube videos somewhere in the post. Hope it would be worth spending a few minutes of your time.
Here’s Part 1
Here’s Part 2
Please leave a comment.
Quote of the day: “People with a lot of free time on their hands usually spend it with people who ain’t got any”
If you are anything like me you have not burnt your ships so to speak as yet, that is you still keep your day job (more on this later) while doing this training with Alex.
A few months back being overwhelmed by a seemingly never-ending series of minor ands major calamities I came across a Brain Evolution system. It was endorsed by one of biggest names in the industry – Mark Joyner (I will really have to make a substantial, standalone post for him!).
Since there has been a trial offer I took it without further ado. There has been a video by Michael Kelly who managed to impress me enough professionally to try his program out.
Today more than six months into the program I can whole-heartedly recommend it to all my fellow students or anyone for that matter who requires a better (I would say “laser-sharp”) focus back into their lives YESTERDAY!
Yeah, it’s that good! A few days back I have become their affiliate.
What would you expect to get from the program:
- unusual calm
- ability to clearly sort out less important stuff immediately
- responses to the usual stimuli become less stereotypical, being modified in a way that lets you choose how exactly YOU want to respond
- deeper relaxation and meditative states I could never have achieved
- sense of being well-rested after each session
The developers describe the BrainEvolution system as the Gym for your brain. I might agree. It did train me well.
To be impartial I must say I am a not-so-newbie Tai-Chi practitioner and for me the transformational experience have been nearly painless.
The BrainEvolution knowledgeable forum offers a word of caution – the program might and probably will deal with some of your deepest and/or supressed emotions. Look out for them, they will normally be over soon.
Having said that, I did recommend the BrainEvolution to some of my close relatives and friends as a very effective and cost-effective means of strengthening one’s mental abilities.
Currently there are six modules, each of a month’s duration. New seventh presumably even deeper module is said to be developed right as I am writing this. So, the journey is not over yet.
To your health,
Quote of the day: “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.”
Simplified Ages Breakdown
Rephrasing one of my Internet Marketing Mentors Alex Jeffreys’ presentation slides that went like this:
I took the liberty of adding the following:
Lever – age
According to Oxford Dictionary:
- a rigid bar resting on a pivot, used to move a heavy or firmly fixed load with one end when pressure is applied to the other
- a projecting arm or handle that is moved to operate a mechanism a control lever
- a means of pressurizing someone into doing something
According to Oxford Dictionary:
1. the exertion of force by means of a lever
- mechanical advantage gained by leverage
- the power to influence a person or situation
2. 1) [with obj] 1) [usu. as adj.] (leveraged) use borrowed capital for (an investment), expecting the profits made to be greater than the interest payable
2) use (something) to maximum advantage the organization needs to leverage its key resources
According to Oxford Business & Management Dictionary:
- The buying in of components, sub-assemblies, finished products, and services from outside suppliers rather than by supplying them internally. A firm may decide to buy in rather than supply internally because it lacks the expertise, investment capital, or physical space required to do so. It may also be able to buy in more cheaply or more quickly than manufacturing in-house…
- In certain instances, computer, legal, and personnel services have been outsourced as well as the more traditional manufactured components.
According to internetmarketingdefinitions.com
Out-task [Out-tasking – AD]
Often used along with outsource, out-tasking is different from outsourcing in that out-tasking is usually done on a smaller scale and for a shorter period. A one-time project would be considered out-tasking rather than outsourcing.
For some reason people tend to believe that they are using one when in real fact they are using another. The answer is quite simple – THEY ARE VERY SIMILAR. Yet, there are inherent differences in-between the two.
Out-tasking – a fixed set of instructions, or tasks that should be completed to certain specifications by someone else
Outsourcing – is rather seen as a higher level of understanding and/or trust in the source outside of the company to take over the responsibility to develop and produce the necessary product according to your defined specifications
In other words, outsourcing is possible with a company or an individual you believe to be professional enough to relieve you of the necessity to be checking on their progress every so often, effectively granting you the freedom to think strategically and leaving all the details and the actual plan of their job to the outsource. These subtleties could really make or break your long-term otherwise productive relationship with your business partners
So it is of paramount importance just to make sure that speaking of outsourcing and out-tasking both sides really mean the same thing. As long is there is a mutual understanding as concerns the real definitions of these two ubiquitous terms you are all set for a mutually beneficial business realtionship.

A couple of days back I tried to checkout the TrafficGeyser, a paid subscription video submitting service with a twist, but found them closed until further notice. It implies that they are working on something bigger than that. Some noticed they now offer a “business in the box package” somewhere in the vicinity of $2000 (rumors differ from $1500 up to $2500), I was not able to get to the actual offer page being redirected to something irrelevant, so I really would not know.
Where it all leaves us, Internet Marketing coaching students wanting the service comparable to TG? Let us have a loook at the alternatives.
Sign up Free. 2 more paid options with more choices
Basic Upload Services Free
Basic Analytics Free
Before Uploading your Videos you should be registered at each site you are planning to deploy them
Another important thing to consider – there are indications that your uploaded video may be banned if they consider it “promotional”…
ArticleVideoRobot – an awesome tool. A web-based application that lets you convert any Ezine article into a talking Video (up to 10 min playtime) under a $1. Video gets submitted to up to 17 videosharing sites. And according to Maria Andros videos DO sell.
There is a 2 week FREE trial period on signup.

Cost: under $70
VideoSubmitWizard by the same author. Video Submit Wizard costs under $40 every 3 months. 14 days trial period under $5. Number of videoshare sites the videos get submitted to just under 30. Obvious downside is that you have to tie up your computer for many hours a day to upload all your videos.
Incansoft A set of desktop utilities including most of the submitters I could only think of – VideoBot, BlogBot, GFXVideo Writer, SocialBot, PressBot – Distribute Your Press Releases to 25 of the TOP, Free Online Press Release Services With One Click…
Video Bot with Automatic Registration to almost all listed video-sharing files (under 100 all in all).
Upside is FREE life-time updates (very important fact as the submission rules change often enough virtually rendering your investment non-
working and downright useless)
SENuke. Web-based service that does everything SEO as the name implies. Feature list extends to more than 30 paragraphs with the indication of more to be added. It is actually a continuity program that have 2 packages. One for $67/month and another one for $127/month.
Among the features are: Video submission, Article submission, Social network submission and headlines spinning (so that you would not
submit exactly the same material), posting of auto-generated RSS feeds etc, etc.
Web2Mayhem. Web-based service, similar set of features with the above-web-based services. Among the features are:
Social Account Creator, RSS Submitter, Social Bookmarker, Video Syndicator, Article Distributor, Blog Poster creates blogs at free
services like Blogger.com and auto-post quality content to them. PAD Submitter, PODCast Submitter etc.
Cost: $127 per month
I have started this post with the video submission in mind, but somehow it evolved into a “whole package” SEO offers. All of these are
definitely worth having a look at.
Hope you find this information useful. Leave a comment. Let me know what you think about it.
Quote of the day: ”We may not imagine how our lives could be more frustrating and complex – but Congress can.”
Is money REALLY in the list?
Visionary of the Business management Joseph M. Juran suggested a principle and named it after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed in the beginning of XX century that 80% of the land in his homeland was owned by only 20% of its population.
It is now known as 80-20 rule or principle.
As concerns Internet Marketing the 80-20 rule is almost universal; the best example of which is your analytics and testing where it becomes very obvious – traffic vs targeted traffic ratio falls into this category. 20 percent of our efforts bring about 80 percent of our results.
The money is in the list… if we got 20 cent every time we read or hear this we all should have been millionaires by now.
In parallel with Jim Collins who said: “…the old adage: “People are your most important asset” is wrong. The right people are your most important asset.” – we should say: ” Big list is your most valuable asset” is probably not enough. But the RESPONSIVE list most probably is.
Along with this, targeted traffic is a lot more useful compared to “totally” irrelevant to your niche traffic.
Tell me what you think about it.
@MirkoGosch Very nicely done review. Well done! Keep up the good work!
Quote of the day:
“…If your kid does drugs it just means that a drug-pusher is a better salesman than you are…“
Dr. Topher Morrison, Live in London, 2007,
Mental Game of Money Seminar
I wanted to write about something else today but as I am taking an incredible Internet Marketing course with Alex Jeffreys at todays session there was a question from one of his coaching students addressed to Alex that went loosely like this – knowing one’s desperate financial situation how to overcome [to fight back - DA] an urgent desire to sell?
Like someone who has been there (I had to raise a business from below zero, so to speak), I could definitely relate to that. And I believe I have got the answer – loosen a grip on your present situation, pretend it is not there, do the right thing and remove the utmost importance you attach to it and it will dissolve soon enough and will turn for the better.
If you noticed the quote of the day above I would also like to comment on 2 points Topher Morrison keep stressing among many others at his events:
First, Marketing is ubiquitous. And, basically, it IS an essential skill.
Second, you should be ready to embrace you fortune.
Let me explain, if there are people reading this who are old enough to remember an IBM/Microsoft JV – the OS/2 operating system, then you should definitely know that this particular Marketing vs Engineering case study makes it painfully clear – no matter how good your product is without the proper marketing it is worth close to nothing.
Would be very glad if you could comment on all of the above.
Thanks for your time,
Hello and welcome to my Internet Marketing Blog!
This is my very first post.
An interesting journey of Winning The Online Marketing Game Creating Value for Others starts right here…
A short story is considered by many to be appropriate so I guess I will just follow the suit.
I have been trying to get online on and off for some years now. It never really have been very tangible if I may say so, untill now, that is…
A few weeks back my life has taken a sharp turn – I have joined Alex Jeffreys Mentoring Program.
This time a failure is not even an option. Alex seems to be one of the rare genuine persons sincerely caring for his students’ success. So far, everything looks up to the expectations – it is the best online success training I have come across.
I wish I had a Mentor (yes, with a capital “M”!) like Alex Jeffreys some 15-20 years ago. Throughout my life I have been taught many, many wonderful skills most of which I do use to this day. This one does not seem different.
That is what the Internet Marketing is – just another skill anyone determined and disciplined enough can be mentored into, something we can learn. Alex will surely see to that… It is so exciting to be a life-time member of his incredible online community.
Please, leave your comments as you see this page, it would be wonderful to have them here. Together we will get there.
