Ken McAuthur on FTC Guidelines – Oh Boy!

Ladies,

If you are into affiliate marketing, blogging, or doing any sort of internet online business, you had better keep yourself knowledgeable and up to date on these new FTC guidelines. Stay head of the game and read the post @ Ken McArthur’s Learning Blog.

Here’s John Carlton’s take on the above matter John Carlton The Marketing Rebel Rant

What The Heck Is A Squeeze Page

I’ve been asked this question way too many times. What exactly is a squeeze page?

Well ladies, it’s exactly that. A one page website that is built with the intention of squeezing your name and email address in exchange for some sort of goodie. You see, the money is in your list. You may or may not hear that saying before. Some professional internet marketers use this method of marketing to build a list of subscribers who are interested in what they have to offer.

Have you ever seen a one-page site that basically tells you something like “Enter your name and email address for the latest, greatest secrets to blah, blah, blah?” They usually have some sort of description of whatever it is they are offering and a testimonial or two and that’s it.

You enter your name and email address on the one page website and they then send you whatever it was they promised and additional information they think you may be interested in.

Of course, I am simplifying for the sake of the blog post, you say. No. I’m not.

It’s rather simple. A squeeze page is a one-page website that is built with the intention of getting your contact information so that a list of subscribers is built to further contact with more valuable information. Is a squeeze page going to help you build relationships? No doubt.

I have learned from some of the most famous internet marketers that this is the way to go in certain instances. Others will argue that fact. It’s simply a matter of “what’s in your action plan?”

If your plan is to build a list of interested subscribers (and it should be) and you plan to advertise your website via pay-per-click to accomplish this task, you probably should use this method for more efficient tracking and to get the names and email addresses of those that want more of what you have to offer.

Is a squeeze page gonna help you in your business?  Sure will.

Quit Procrastination Now

It has come to my attention that many women are trying to quit procrastination and get the things done that they know they need to do for themselves. Women wear so many hats and some of us have this notion that all the hats we wear must be the right size and right fit. This is my quest to help you overcome this common habit.

Let me start out by pointing out that there must be a reason you are procrastinating. In my readings I’ve found that the causes of this behavior is often one of several things: a fear of failure, not having a clear vision and/or not being organized.

I say you can quit procrastination like you can quit that lame ass excuse for a man your dating.  Now, while both of these situations can lead to self-sabotage, I certainly understand that they are not that easy to overcome. However, I bet my hard earned money that you can learn to make both of them a thing of the past.

Here are tips to get you started:

  • Change your mind set. Start immediately to think positively and realistically.  Look for and find whatever it is that motivates you and put it to use. Talk to yourself out loud (positive self-talk) about what it is you want to accomplish.
  • Have a clear and concise vision. Take some time to think about goals and desires and make certain that they are achievable and very very clear.
  • Break your goals down into bits of smaller more attainable goals. Don’t allow your goal setting to overwhelm you. Be realistic about how much time you need to achieve your goals.
  • Write it down. Purchase, buy or borrow a legal pad, note book, diary or any thing else you can write into and jot down every single thing you need to do. I mean everything.  I prefer to do this task at night right before bed. However, you can choose to do it in the morning as you rise.  Whatever time you choose to do it, do it.
  • Cross-Out Method. This is the method of crossing out everything that you have totally gotten completed. For example, let say you had jotted down six things on your to-do list last night. Well, before you start your next list, you should cross out each task that you have successfully accomplished. If there are things on the list that you haven’t completed, put it on the top of your list for tomorrow.

If you think you have a medical condition, then please seek professional help. Some women may need therapy while others may just require self help tactics like the ones I’ve listed above.

The above tips are guaranteed to help you overcome and quit procrastination. Once you learn how to take charge of your life and quit procrastination, you will persevere. Women in business can’t afford to not overcome this habit.

What The Heck Is An Opt-in

OkayAn Opt-in is simply a subscriber who has agreed to get your messages.

There’s a few different ways to verify whether or not you’ve agreed to get mail from someone. Let’s say for te sake of argument that you just have to have my book that featured on the top right hand side of this page. When you enter your name and email address into that form, you will almost instantly get an email from me that asks you to please verify that you agree to receive information from profitablesistas.com.

Once you click on the link in that first email, you have opted in to my lists of subscribers (or I have a new opt-in.) For internet marketers, this is a must with all the spam laws and crazies out there.

In short, you will have agreed to receive mail from me, in addition to the book I promised, and any further communications that I think you may be interested in. I will then send you the book I promised and hope that you will follow my lead on other juicy tidbits of information.

Now, remember I talked about lists and list building. Well, these are the people on you lists who have agreed to receive you juicy information. As an internet marketer you’ll want to offer something in exchange for providing that value in email address and name. Your autoresponder will handle all of the details of your subscribers opting in and out of you subscriber list.

There’s another lesson to be learned here. At the bottom of every email you receive from any internet marketer should have a link to opt-out. Opt-out is the opposite from opt-in. If you click the opt-out link in any email, you will be , in essence, saying “I don’t wish to receive any further communication from this internet marketer.”

I hope you enjoyed this lesson. Now ladies on to list building your list of opt-in’s!
