I have been posting on Adam Eason Inner Circle forum about twittering. It is very hard to explain quite how useful this technology is. There are some people on there who do a lot and I mean a lot of studying and sourcing the information they want. Google and Wiki are OK’ish for static data but there is a much more fluid nature to information now. Searching for relevant information via that old search method is slow, dry, tedious and boring.
Since my entry into ‘Twitterdom’ I can honestly say that I have learned more from others in a fun, social way and been recommended to pinpoint accurate sources of information for answers to my questions. Sometimes within seconds of asking around.
The thing about twittering is it’s brevity and flexibility. And if you get things set
up right your twitters get updated on your Facebook, WordPress blog and other social
media anyway if that is what you want. (more…)
Now it seems incredible to me that I hadn’t even heard of Ed Dale just a month ago and yet here I am putting him first on my list of people I would most recommend to my friends to learn the Internet selling game.
This is the best advice I can give – at this moment in time – to any newcomer to the world of selling products on-line. Get on Ed Dale’s 30 Day Challenge
The web has changed remarkably in the last two or three years and probably the most significant factor is that you no longer need to have a central website to make things happen – it is actually better that you are actively out there getting into communities that suit your lifestyle and with your peers. Ed Dale has captured this change perfectly and has a refreshing new honest approach to web training
When I say that Ed Dale is the guy to look out for to help you achieve things on the web it isn’t strictly true. He has a team that work together incredibly well. There is Dan Raine and Rob Somerville to name but two. There may be more but – well – I have only known about this dude a short time. (more…)
One of the keys to success at selling products on the Internet is to identify who the Good Guys of the Internet Marketing world are and learn from them.
In the title of this posting I have added the words ‘Important Blog’ for a reason. I really want you to learn some lessons that it has taken me a long time to discover. Over the next few days I will give you a real short cut to some great people who have deservedly won my admiration. I want you to understand why I am a fan of these people.
I will start with a brief potted history so that you know that I have the right credentials to be giving you any advice at all. (more…)
It may be difficult given the large number that exist – but I avoid as far as is humanly possible negative people. They are everywhere – especially in the media. Do journalists have to go on a negativity course to do their work?
One of the best bits of business advice I ever received was – surround
yourself with positive people. You have only to look around at
successful entrepreneurs to realise the truth of that advice.
Despite my best attempts though I read one of those moany whingeing type of blog entries this morning – (I must admit on a blog site that I usually enjoy) – which prompted me to leave a comment on the site. The writer is apparently tired of the pressure to join Social Networks and goes on to point out the security problems associated with these sites.
Here verbatim is my comment I left at the site. (more…)
I get it! I see what all this twittering is about. Forgive my obsession with Twittering this week but this has really impressed me.
I won’t go through chronologically what I have been up to on Twitter because you can go to http://twitter.com/keithwatson/ and follow me.
My only regret is that I didn’t sign up to use my real name – I might do that as I have only 3 days of use to lose – and I can always follow the same people again.
The term to follow is an interesting one. Who would you follow in life – only people you felt could offer you more than you have now. So I am very selective who I choose to link to follow.
I realised very quickly that Twitter must be an important site when I saw the calibre of people joining. One in particular stood out for me – Thomas Power Chairman of Ecademy. (more…)
I am Twittering and not totally sure why yet but I am taking advice. But first of all let me explain how this has come about.
I am totally changing things around here. I am absolutely fed up to the back teeth with all the hypey, must have 5 minute wonders that pass as major ground breaking product launches.
My e-mails are swamped with messages from the same spammy IM characters – who have a friend, who has made pots of money, and is now launching the secrets of how that was all achieved etc etc etc etc etc etc.
I actually bought into some of that hype in the past.
So decision time. Who are to be my mentors? – who do I respect the opinion of? (more…)
