Introduction to myself, I’m retired from work married man of 39 years

Sadly I can no longer be a writer on IBOtoolbox, due to the admin and support lady who left to do another thing on another platform, with the result I could not log in

I enjoy listening to assorted music, the 50s-60s ’70s ’80s and classical, love Johann Strauss II waltzes – some well know Opera, even though I don’t understand the words

  • Why am I blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • Answer: I wanted to share my acquired knowledge with others
  • What topics will I be writing about?
  • Answer: Mostly useful or helpful information



Why Bother Learning skills?

With any skill, you can provide value which can in turn lead to others paying you money

While it is true the more skills you learn, the more values you can then provide.

It is advisable to choose just one new skill and acquire all the knowledge to become an expert in that subject before moving on to a new subject

For example, subjects are often referred to as niches these are focused subjects
In the case of internet marketing, you can learn how to build a blog, how to do copywriting, how to build a list etc, and you can teach these skills and build more followers.

Once you can identify problems within your chosen niche, having acquired knowledge you should be able to provide solutions for each problem

With every solution, you will be adding value which in turn will bring in paying customers

Do you know how to find out what is Trending?

Finding out will not only give you new ideas but also help you ways to help others and in the process increase your potential income

Google Trends used to be helpful in finding profitable niches, but having recently tested it out, I found no help at all

I will update this information if and when I find another website that helps

Affiliates Marketers Chosen Sites

When it comes to affiliate marketing many affiliates think of only a few websites to help them earn commission payments

Some affiliates will just stick to using one website when there are many other sites that welcome affiliates

ClickBankFor people wanting to promote digital products such as eBooks & courses then ClickBank is the go-to site for that. Generally, digital products have higher product margins since there are no shipping or handling fees and as a result, several of the products on ClickBank pay out huge commissions. There are products on there to suit almost any niche, but there are a few on there that I’ve found to be lacking value.

Commission Junction – This works hand in hand with ClickBank which means if you are already a ClickBank affiliate the CJ platform will enhance your success

eBay Partner NetworkAgain, just like the Amazon program that was mentioned above – this is not a network, but an affiliate program in itself. It’s most likely already aware of how huge eBay is so having the ability to earn commissions by promoting products through eBay is a great opportunity which is why I have listed it

Amazon AssociatesThis is an affiliate program in itself as opposed to a network, but the reason I listed it is that it’s so huge. By joining the Amazon affiliate program (named Amazon Associates) you have the ability to promote nearly enough all products through the whole Amazon network, which can be an amazing opportunity depending on your niche.

Amazon affiliate problems:

 Amazon cookie only lasts 24 hours unlike 30 days with other programs. This means that your prospect will need to make a purchase within 24 hours of clicking your link for you to be credited a commission for the sale.

Warning: Amazon will remove you as their affiliate if you have not gained any sales within a month!

Amazon & Clickbank include a warning of your affiliate status, decreasing your chances of earning commission

The Secret Marketing Tool

Note this short post is part of unfinished my new book if you would be interested in gaining my book to read the full contents. You will need to request in the comments

This information will be of use to all online marketers especially those who own & use a Smartphone

 Far too many gurus make full use of sales funnels

You know the kind of page you are presented with an intriguing offer that sounds easy and to make it more tempting the price is so low they are practically giving it away

The price is set somewhere about $7 to $17 on average, and quite often there is a “Wait Don’t Go” dropdown annulment to drag you back into the funnel

Since the price is so low for all you are getting you will tend to buy whatever it is, only to have a “One time offer” pop up

I don’t know about you but I am fed up with those kinds of funnels, which lead me to think of alternative marketing tools

I started by looking at all the tools that were used before funnels were invented

 One of the oldest methods was the “Mail Order” system which involved buying a mailing list and creating a one-page sales copy

With a name & address space at the bottom for those who wanted either more information

In this high tec world, this might surprise you that some marketers still use is “Mail Order” system with a slight variation of including a hyperlink to type into a browser

Since I still receive this kind of “Mail Order” letter I guess this system still works

If I were to consider using the “Mail Order” system, it would need updating with modern-day technology.

Wasting Your Adverting Budget?

A common mistake website owners make is paying for traffic that takes visitors to their website

This mistake is also copied by affiliate marketers who use their affiliated link which then goes directly to the vendor (the owner of the product or service page!

Big mistake!

Why are both of these practices such a big mistake?

Any website owner will be eager to show off their website, especially if they have items for sale

The mistake of sending visitors (traffic) directly to their website, is websites have too many distractions with menus offering the visitor too many choices

Even a sales page will not be cost-effective, as most people dislike having things no matter how good being sold to them

A similar problem happens to affiliate marketers who advert their direct link, firstly by not masking/cloaking/hiding their link they stand little chance of gaining any sales

As most people dislike having things no matter how good being sold to them, plus the affiliate has no way of tracking results and no way of building a mailing list by using the direct link approach

Even if these two groups use free advertising using the same approach as mentioned, they will waste their efforts and time

As time is money, it’s best to learn how & what to promote with the right tools

Thinking outside the box

“Thinking outside the box”

You may have come across this phrase on your travels through the internet, today I want to explore the meaning

Thinking outside the box means thinking differently, unconventionally, or from a different perspective, also innovative or creative thinking

With this explanation in mind allow me to explore both points, to think differently, unconventionally, or from a new perspective

By looking at everything more carefully even if it appears as if there is no other way of using or explaining whatever the subject or item or opportunity 

If you are an author, you need a creative nature or at least develop one, so thinking out of the box becomes a necessity

What about the Entrepreneur?   

All Entrepreneurs also need to go beyond the limitation of all boxes, in order to become the unique others will want to emulate

Out-of-the-box thinking may be of more importance to this type of person – The Newbie as they are just starting out on a new venture with no qualifications or experience

The Affiliate Marketer, they are slightly ahead of the newbie, as they will have already some experience

Both the newbie and the affiliate marketer need restricting boxes to begin with, but in order to grow they will need to move beyond what they know and use

By gaining new and fresh information they will stimulate their minds, with thoughts that may allow them to break free of any restricting box

Example: Rewording adverts in their own style or constructing their own unique versions

This is something I have been doing for some time, by creating “one-liner” adverts, doing this allows a fresh look to otherwise repetitive ads that have been seen many times before

On the subject of advertising, I decided to make use of an assortment of my press releases and produce a give-away eBook, with no details required

I intend to allow anyone who downloads it, I may even allow them to sell it if they know how and keep all the money or give it away to build a list

As part of the process of compiling the book, I will add affiliate-linked banner adverts and other links, which allows for a Win-Win situation, benefiting others and myself

I also have other variations of the above idea buzzing around in my mind, message me if you’re interested, I’m willing to share


10 Reasons why having the right mindset is important

You Should Never Stop Learning

1. The world is always changing. What was relevant yesterday might not be relevant today. By continuously learning, you can keep up with the latest trends and technologies.

2. In order to keep your brain active and sharp. Learning new things gives your brain a workout and helps prevent cognitive decline as you age.

3. This also makes you more well-rounded and interesting. If you’re only knowledgeable about one thing, you are limiting yourself and in turn, may not be very interesting to talk to. But if you’re always learning new things, you’ll be able to hold your own in any conversation.

4. Mindset matters. How you think about yourself and your abilities has a big impact on your success.

5. A growth mindset leads to greater success than a fixed mindset. People with a growth mindset believe that they can improve with effort, whereas people with a fixed mindset believe that their abilities are set in stone.

6. Your brain is like a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it gets. Keep challenging yourself mentally and push yourself outside your comfort zone to keep growing.

7. A positive outlook can lead to better health outcomes. Studies have shown people with a positive outlook on life tend to live longer and have fewer health problems than those with a negative outlook.

8.  Believe in yourself – if you don’t believe in your own abilities, it will be tough to achieve anything.

9. Be persistent – never give up on your dreams, no matter how difficult they may seem at times.

10, Learn from your mistakes – instead of beating yourself up over them, use them as learning opportunities to improve in the future.
