Closing down EMSG

Hi folks!

While it has been an honor serving and helping everyone out there that I can, I must say that I have come to the decision to shut down EMSG and my YouTube channel associated with this group.

It was my sincere wish that I could help as many people as possible with our free training, but the truth is that I am tired of fighting and arguing with those that have been harassing me in the last 2 months.

I thought I would be willing to fight this out for as long as it took, but I am wrong. I can’t fight what I can’t see and these cowards always kept themselves “in the dark.”

With that said, it’s been a lot of fun and I hope you folks will continue your efforts to find your niche and find the information you need for online success. I will still be here, but just promoting my own programs rather than teaching.

Good luck to all and if you ever have any questions, do not hesitate to call or contact me.

Wouldn’t That Be Nice??? Me, Close Down EMSG…NEVER!

I know that drivel above sounds good to some folks….you know, those asses that believe that they need to monitor everyone’s personal decision to get involved in something they disagree with.

I will not promote gifting on the EMSG site or even this one…why? Because it’s too damn important to help people try to earn a secondary income or to help them build an income from scratch and these hall monitor types will be more than happy to go through this site and make sure that ANYTHING I have created that even comes close to violating the TOS of this hosting account will be reported.

Yes, these folks are this perverted.

Shouldn’t I Embrace RealScam.com and It’s Members?

No.

Why?

Because they aren’t really interested in exposing real scams, rather they are interested in harassing people that are genuinely interested in generating income for themselves through a variety of programs – they even went after Mary Kay – rather than going after people that are truly interested in screwing people out of their money.

I don’t like this type of person. I’m not saying there are people out there that do not take advantage of people and if they went after those folks I probably would be a bit more sympathetic, but there are some folks out there that they have tried to destroy and have sunken to the lowest of lows because they feel that what they are doing is morally right…I just disagree with them and their tactics of lying about people and people’s intentions. (How would they know what someone’s intentions were anyway?)

Yep, some of these folks I have had on the phone crying about the way they have been treated…but here’s the deal…to hell with that bunch. We keep on moving, we keep pushing….and in the end we will win!

Have fun gang…and I will see you at the top!

Marketing Online with a Blog

marketing online with a blogI First Started Marketing Online With a Blog

I have been using blogs to market my opportunities ever since I first started promoting anything online.

At first, I didn’t really know what I was doing…not really sure that I know now either, but one thing is clear and that is that I still use blogs to promote my business opportunities and to promote myself as well.

What I like most about setting up blogs has to do with me more than the promotional abilities of the blog itself. You see, I like to write. I enjoy writing and I can generally put out a lot of information in a fairly short amount of time.

This “content creation” is great for blogs since many rankings on the main search engines out there have a lot to do with consistent posting.

Yes, you need to be creating some quality content, no doubt about that, but you really need to be very consistent – and at times persistent – with your blog posting.

Marketing Consistently With Your Blog

So how do you go about being a busy blogger?

It’s not as difficult as you may think. I would advise anyone starting out with a blog to just start writing and not to worry about how much you write or how long those blog posts are…you just want to start posting.

Yes, as time moves on you will want to start posting more quality type of content and probably writing about 500 to 700 words or more, but at first it’s just important to write and post. Be consistent!

Blogs Rank Well on Google

Marketing online with a blog is great for another reason and that reason is…

…google rewards bloggers that post consistently with fresh and original content. You can literally take a new blog and start ranking well on Google within a couple of weeks.

You may not rank well for all of the key phrases that you are going for, but with additional promoting you can see your blog rank well for a number of phrases.

This is one of the absolutely best ways to generate targeted leads.

marketing online with a blogMarketing Online With a Blog is Cost Effective!

Blogging is free!

Yep, you can create a blog at WordPress.com or Blogger.com and start blogging away until your heart is content.

While I prefer to purchase a unique domain name, like markgrahammarketing.com or makemoneyonlineanywhere.com, and apply these domains to a WordPress.org site…that’s .org NOT .com…it isn’t 100% necessary.

For many, starting a blogger blog works well enough, after all, it’s about using this blogging platform to provide information for your product, service or opportunity and generating targeted visitors to that information.

A free or hosted blog will do this for you.

Why do I choose a hosted blog? Because I like to have the control over my content and I don’t want to wake up one day, find that I have violated some obscure Google or WordPress.com rule and lose all that I have worked for.

Yes, it has happened to me before (with a YouTube account).

marketing online with a blogTake Action and Setup That Blog Now

Marketing online with a blog can be a effective means for you to get your information or opportunities out there to the cyber world.

As I stated early on, I have used blogs for my programs and I have generated plenty of traffic from them.

There are some tools that I would think about using if you are going to be marketing online with a blog though. Tools like the Unique Article Wizard and a keyword research tool like Market Samurai or Jaaxy.

While the tools aren’t a necessity, they can and do make life quite a bit easier.

For me, just being able to write and get the information out there is what is most important and I just enjoy marketing online with a blog for any niche that I am promoting, but blogging isn’t for everyone.

If you do find that you want to start promoting your business with a blog then I would suggest that you not wait any longer, grab a blog at blogger.com or wordpress.com and start writing.

Marketing with a blog can be a lot of work, but it can also be a lot of fun getting your ideas and stuff out there!

November is Killing Me!

Hey folks! Just wanted to post a quick update about what I’ve been up to this month.

Am feverishly trying to put the summer behind me, but am having to finish up quite a few jobs that I started this summer…plumbing jobs that is.

I should have things wrapped up in a week or so, but it’s been hectic and I’ve been working from about 6 am to midnight to make it all work out, so I haven’t been putting forth the efforts that I need to marketing and promoting my site, programs and products and this includes working on the training site!

No need to worry! I am just about through and will be posting plenty of goodies for everyone and especially finishing up all of the auto responder emails, image files and a few generic videos that everyone can use to build their AIOP capture pages.

If you are not a member of All in One Profits, I suggest you take a look by going to Internet Profits Center and taking a quick tour of the program. It’s pretty cool and very cheap (only $11.50 a month)

Anyway, am getting into bed now to start it all over again tomorrow….will be heading to Houston again this week and may be holding the conference/training call on Tuesday from there.

If you are interested in getting on the call this week, but aren’t a member of the Elite Marketing Systems Group, go to elitemarketingsystems.org and fill out a training application.

Have fun and promote away! See you at the top!

Online Scam Busters: aka Self Righteous Know it Alls!

Yep, another rant…just what you wanted to hear, I’m sure!

This rant however has a bit of a theme to it…so it’s a structured thought of some sort? Well, not really, but I do believe it is time to come out and say what the hell is on my mind about these folks harassing people who are working hard to earn a living from Internet marketing.

I am, of course, referring to those self anointed online scam busters.

Now, some of you have seen that I started promoting The People’s Program again….yes, and no.

I mean, I haven’t really been promoting at all…nothing, really.

I am too busy trying to complete some jobs that I started with the plumbing business (don’t ask me why I went back to that this summer…it doesn’t make any sense to me!)

Anyway, I have been working on finishing up my obligations there, so I haven’t been promoting any business opportunity or activity at all.

I’ve even let my personal blogging go to the wayside a bit and I am seeing the repercussions of that choice – (be consistent!)

So now that I am coming back, and things are looking up, I have decided to start promoting TPP again.

Why?

Because when you know how to promote and market online, you can promote and market any activity out there and gifting is one of the best ways to generate a lot of cash very quickly.

So where do these online scam busters come into play?

It seems that there is a group of these folks cruising YouTube…and probably other sites and search engines…making sure that there is no one promoting anything that they deem illegal or “scammy.”

While I do understand that there are indeed marketers out there that are scamming people, I think there is a broad difference between someone who designs or participates in a program that is designed to scam people out of money and a program that is designed to generate cash like TPP.

What is that difference? The intent of the design of the program itself. One can generate cash, the other will not work is was never meant to work for someone.

The main problem with The People’s Program (and other similar gifting activities) for these folks is that there is not a “product,” although I would suggest that the idea alone is a product.

Thin ice you say? Perhaps, but the design of the system does not require that people you bring into the activity do well to assure your own success, nor does the success of someone that invited you to this activity have anything to do with your success.

If you know how to promote and market your activity effectively and efficiently online then you will generate cash.

Oversimplification? No, I don’t believe that it is.

So, why do I have a problem with the idiot YouTube “vigilante” police? Because they equate people who are truly trying to help others with those that are interested in screwing people for a buck – and there doesn’t seem to be a line between those that are just trying to make it and those that really want to take money from “little old ladies.”

This irks me to the core. Primarily because I know that anyone can take a program like TPP and generate cash with it – IF THEY TAKE THE TIME TO LEARN HOW TO.

A scam is a system or business DESIGNED for the purposes of stealing money from people or is a system or business DESIGNED for the marketer to lie to people in order to get them to sign up and get involved.

Most businesses or activities are NOT designed this way, but because marketer is very good at sales and is able to attract people to their program does not make them a “scammer” or their program a “scam.”

Yes, most people will fail with their online efforts, especially the first time round, but why?

For the most part, making money with any program online requires that you learn the ropes to online marketing and business and most people do not do this.

Another problem is perspective. Many folks think that by creating a website and advertising that website in a few place that they are going to find success. Perhaps some will, but the truth is that finding success online – with ANY program – requires that you either work your ass off or pay someone to work their ass off for you and most people aren’t prepared or have the discipline to do this.

Am I throwing everything back to the newbie, wannabe marketer?

Yes, to a certain extent I am, but experienced marketers also are at fault here. We should make sure that people understand that it’s no “cake walk” out here and be honest with what is required to generate an income.

Is making money online easy? I think it is, but I am also comparing that with the fact that I have worked in the construction industry for 20+ years and I KNOW what hard work is. Telling people about a program where they can generate hundreds or even thousands of dollars a day to their mailbox is NOT that hard.

Easy or not, in order to become a successful online marketer there are skills that have to be learned and perfected including sales skills. There is also a level of self-discipline that many do not have to become a successful online (or offline) entrepreneur that many have not developed.

So the online scam busters out there should really take a hard look at the real reasons for people failing to make the grade in the work from home niche that they are so self righteously guarding.

And let me say one more thing about the scam busting society – I despise you. For the most part, you stand for so many things that I think are wrong with society and freedom in general. You don’t care about free speech or free enterprise. You believe that adults must be protected, but sometimes we need to use common sense and learn hard lessons…even expensive ones, but you would not allow that because we must be protected and who else is qualified but you?

And what in fact qualifies you to “protect” the so-called “weak?” How do you know you are correct in your assumptions? Why not let people be free to choose what to do with their money and their time?

I think this is not about helping people or curbing the tide of illegal activity, but rather something a bit more sinister. I believe that it is all about control. You want to control outcomes and you think your way is the best way….a bit egocentric I think, but I truly believe that this is the case.

And why do you want that control over others, over what people have to say and express? What do you get from that? How do you benefit?

You say that it is about feeling good for “helping” people stay away from the scamsters?

Bullshit.

You do it because you are unable to create anything on your own. You do it to feel better about your own failures. You do it because rather than embrace freedom and common sense, you seek a society filled with conformity and sheepish behavior.

And for every person you “save,” how many people who could have succeeded been averted from going out there and pushing themselves and found success? How many dreams have you crushed with your actions?

What you fail to realize is that MOST people who are marketing online successfully started off knowing nothing about the Internet or online business. Most of us were fed up with our jobs, with our bosses or with a way of life that no longer suited us.

Most of us just wanted to achieve something that others were unwilling to work towards and unwilling to sacrifice for.

When I first joined The People’s Program I had never marketed a thing on the Internet, but I was determined to “figure it out” and I’m still “figuring it out” to some extent.

This is what is required to find success. To be willing to go out there and be different, to walk away from the norm and choose to learn what has to be learned and do what has to be done.

We do these things not according to some “code” that YOU develop and approve of. We do things according to our dreams and visions and we HELP PEOPLE along the way. We become of service to others and rather than tear people down we try to build them up and tell them that they CAN do something, that they CAN succeed if they are willing to pay the price.

Unfortunately, you believe that the price is too steep and that you should not take a risk on a program or opportunity that isn’t guaranteed and that is where the scam really lies, In people coming to rely on what you have to say about this business, that opportunity or this activity when you have not succeeded with anything yourselves other than your criticisms.

For those of you that are willing to do the hard things, that are willing to walk away from your “comfort” zones and change your lives, we are here to help you and we will not quit on you and we will do what we need to do to make sure that you get your chance.

If you are truly in search of a way to generate cash online then I invite you to the world of gifting and also to a group that offers you online marketing training for free…yep, for free.

If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired and you are ready for a change then welcome to the club! Join us, learn from us and let’s make those dreams become a reality.

I’ll see you at the top!

generate cash quickAn AhHa Moment!

For a long time now I have been marketing different programs that I felt offered the average person a good chance to join because of the cost of the program. What I mean by that is that I have always promoted an “economical” program in terms of being able to get started, something with a  low start up fee.

What I have realized over the past few weeks is that this might not be the way to go.

Why?

If you want to learn how to generate cash quickly online one of the things that you can control immediately is the cost of a program and the higher the cost, i.e. big-ticket vs. little-ticket programs, the more quickly you can generate income.

Oh, this doesn’t just apply to how quickly you can do this, but also how much money you can generate.

For example…

If my income goal is to earn a six figure income from home what will be easier, a program that I sell for twenty five dollars or a program that I sell for a thousand dollars?

And let’s just say that I earn 100% of the cash generated.

A lot of people might think that I will do better with a $25 or $50 dollar program because many more people will sign up, and to a certain extent that sort of makes sense, but the reality is something different.

The Beauty of Math

Let’s say it takes me 50 people opting into my capture page for 1 conversion, 1 final sale of my $25 dollar product. In order to generate $2000 dollars a week I need 80 sales which is 4000 opt-ins.

Let me just say that I do better with conversions than that and for every 50 people that opt in I actually make 3 sales! Now we’re rollin’!

I still need 80 sales, but now I only need 1333 opt-ins to make this thing all work out! That’s much better!

Now because I’m going after the big money, let’s say that I am using some paid advertising methods and I’m generating leads at a cost of .50 cents per lead. Not bad really….

.50 x 1,333 = $666.50

So it costs me $666.50 to generate those 1333 leads. I’m not netting my 2k a week, but I’m knocking down some decent bucks here!

Now, if I apply similar marketing methods to generate leads for a business that generates a thousand dollars per sale, what do I need?

Let’s say I only get 1 sale per 400 opt-ins. That’s a .25% conversion rate which is a very low with a targeted market, but I’m doing this to make a point.

These leads cost me .50 cents as well and to make 2 sales I need 800 opt-ins, which costs me $400 dollars to generate for two sales of 1k per conversion.

I’ve spent less money and made more sales. If I spent as much as I did in my first example I actually would have made 3 converting sales and netted $2,400 dollars per week.

One more thing, because all I did was focus on paid marketing campaigns, I only worked 4 hours this week generating all of my leads – (about 3 hours writing ad copy and emails for solo ad campaigns) Maybe I actually spent ten or fifteen bucks on fiverr.com getting someone else to write the ad copy and I only worked about 30 minutes putting up pay per click ads and submitting my emails to the solo ad companies.

Consider All Things When Marketing Online

When you consider all things, generating cash online fast really comes down to becoming a more efficient and effective marketer.

One more thing…

…assuming that both programs have a market that desires your program or opportunity or whatever does what you promote have ANYTHING to do with whether or not you made money?

No it doesn’t.
