Paul/Angela Links

August 9, 2010

Last week a fellow internet marketer made a strong suggestion to check out ODesk. So I did. The site is cool. There is definitely opportunity to work, if you are willing to produce mass quantities of output and a super low rate. Competition is stiff!  Many of the jobs pay less than $5 per hour. I’ve seen as low as $0.56 per hour…. and that’s for a solid seo link building project.

ODesk could be a great opportunity for someone interested in getting into the industry or  looking for a little extra income. Stick with it long enough and you could definitely earn a nice little paycheck!

Also, what in the world is the benefit of this thing called Paul/Angela links? Is this service really so great or, is the ODesk job posting just a plot to sell this affiliate product online to unsuspecting patrons who need a way to build links fast?

Someone posted a job today for 120 ‘Paul’ links at a budget of $20. The Paul & Angela product actually costs $215 for 120 links. Um, something just doesn’t add up here!

Rant over. AffiliateGeek out!

Just  finished reading week 1 of the Xtreme Internet Marketing Course from Jeremy Shoemaker of Shoemoney.com. The content looks to be good quality. Seems to be a great course for both beginners and intermediate internet marketers alike. Could be good for highly experienced marketers as well… you tell me. 🙂

The author, Jeremy Shoemaker, provides an overview of the course as well as brief definitions of each section of the course. The desrciptions should help you better understand exactly what will be taught each week and prepare you for a successful work week. He even provides a suggested action plan. You just don’t find that with most internet marketing classes.

I’ve reviewed a ton of programs… they’re all the same… go sign up here, pay this money, subscribe to this or that newsletter. Most classes are so confusing. Makes me want to give up immediately! Oh…and, let’s not forget about the spam that you receive after you sign up for 40 different newsletters as suggested by some of the other internet marketing coaches. It’s rediculous! Seriously… is that the only way they know how to make money… by confusing the hell out of their audience? How many of their readers become successful internet marketers?

Jeremy really did a great job with placing the focus directly on the marketer. Really creates an atmosphere that teaches you to focus on your goals and ideas and not the ideas and goals of MLM marketers.I’ve only received 3 emails for this course and thus far have not been asked to sign up for anything accept a PDF tool so that I can read the lessons and a Gmail account to help me stay organized. Awesome! Even better… .the content nor the Action plan are confusing. Everything he teaches is straigtforward and to the point. Plain and Simple. Love it!

Okay… that’s it for now. I need to work on my Action Plan for this week. I know what I want to promote… Now it’s time to write it down and start taking Action! Thanks Jeremy for creating a great course that really focuses on me!

P.s. Did I mention how excited I am to learn about Mobile Marketing? Didn’t even realize I could set up a code on my blog which will allow me to communicate with my readers via mobile messaging and SMS texts. This is so exciting!!!

Last night I posted a press release at a certain FREE Press Release submission company. I was super excited to view my stats and see where the traffic was coming from… and then I noticed my traffic was coming from the Google Brazil search engine. Kindof baffled by that new result I started thinking… where do FREE Press Release and Article Submission companies submit my articles? Are they getting to the right audience? How can I use this method to my advantage? Should I submit Brazilian articles to this particular Press Release Submission company?

If you know the answer then please leave a note… Thanks!

How do I chose the best email platform to fit my current and future needs? In order to answer this question, it’s important to know the answers to many other questions…

Email Deliverability

Tracking capabilities

Can you import a list?

Is the platform set up for list segmentation and targeting?

What features are available to help with segmentation and targeting?

Price? Is it a monthly fee or a pay per email fee? Which is the best model for my mailing needs?

Microsoft creates new Search Engine called “Bing“. How will this compete with Yahoo and Google? The search engine will be initially focused on Travel, Local, Shopping and Health. I wonder how much the advertising will cost.

Ian Paul from PC World.com raises some interesting questions about the new search engine in the article, 5 Things I want to know about Bing. Check it out…

If you are not familiar with the NoFollow tag then check out this article from SEOBook.

Apparently Google has made some search engine changes that affect the NoFollow tag. Check out this article from Kevin Newcomb at SearchEngineWatch.com titled, Google Changes course on Nofollow.
