In January 2021, my world was turned upside down.
My mother informed me that one of my sisters ( I have 3) had been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.
My sister lives in Africa. She has received zero medical treatment and is deteriorating very quickly.
To save her life, we are hoping to send her to India ASAP to receive urgent medical attention. She has already been granted a visa.
Any donations whatever the amount would be greatly appreciated at this traumatic time.
*** Sad to say my sister passed away a few days ago before she was able to travel.
If you wish to contribute to her Memorial Fund you are welcome to do so.
Many marketers are unwittingly killing their Facebook business before they even got started with two big mistakes.
As we all know, first impressions are lasting impressions.
So if you are running an online business, you will be aware that having a decent profile is essential.
I use Facebook to market my business in addition to Traffic Exchanges amongst other platforms.
Here are the two big mistakes I see with people setting up their Facebook profile:
Many people think they can remain anonymous and so will use the picture of a cat or dog for example.
I hate to break it to these people but in business, people do business with people that they know, like, and trust.
So if you are a serious online marketer, you'll want your profile photo to be a photo showing your face. If possible you
should smile in your photo.
Who wants to do business with someone looking sad?
Sometimes, people also have a photo of themselves with their partner or spouse. Unless your partner is in business with you, it is best for your profile photo not to include your partner.
It is easy to trip up on this one.
Your Facebook cover photo is another great way to let people know who you are.
You want to add a picture here that shows the best version of you.
Be aware of the dimensions before you add any old picture though!
The most common mistake I see here is people adding great cover photos with the wrong dimensions.
The end result is - and I have seen an example just now - that you may for example add a great picture but where your head is cut off!
The other point is you want to make sure that your cover photo is mobile optimized.
What I mean by that is your Facebook cover photo may look great on a desktop computer but terrible on a mobile device.
What kind of impression of you does that leave your prospect
There are two ways to resolve the issue with the cover photo:
1) Do It Yourself
You can head over to Canva and use their Facebook Cover Photo template. That will ensure you have a nice looking cover photo that is perfect on mobile and desktop.
Canva is free to join: http://bit.ly/canvaisfreetojoin
2) Get professional help
If you don't want to be messing around with your Facebook cover photo yourself then you can get some help to do that.
You can ask a Fiverr graphic designer to produce a stunning, professional-looking Facebook cover photo that will make people stand up and take notice of you.
You can check what Fiverr has to offer here: http://bit.ly/fiverrrocks
Many people skim past those two elements in their marketing. But your profile photo and cover photo are of big importance to your business.
There are three other elements that can contribute to having a powerful profile and will force targeted prospects to want to follow you.

Facebook is the world's biggest social media platform bar none. There are 2.7 billion people using Facebook currently.
Can Facebook work for Internet Marketers?
If you have used Facebook previously and had limited success then you might be excused to think that promoting there is a waste of time.
But one thing is certain there is a big opportunity for Internet Marketers on Facebook.
Why do people come to Facebook?
The primary reason people are there is to be:
- educated or informed
- connected with friends and family
Notice that being sold a business opportunity is not one of the three main reasons why people come to Facebook.
So promoting your link on Facebook to all and sundry is doomed to fail.
Whatever, you do not turn your personal newsfeed into an advertising billboard. Trust me, it does not work.
So how do you go about promoting on Facebook?
You first need to create an eye-catching profile. You have literally 5-7 seconds to catch someone's attention. And there are some key elements that are non-negotiable:
- Cover Photo: treat this as your business card and sales funnel. You can have a cover photo done on Canva or you could head over to Fiverr and get a designer to create one for you.
_ Profile photo: this should not be a photo of your dog or cat. It needs to be your photo showing your face and hopefully with a smile. People need to know who you are.
- Intro: it needs to tell people what you are about.
People tend to do business with people they know, like, and trust. So make sure you invest time in making your profile stand out.
So what next?
Have you spent hours on Facebook chasing friends and family? And how did that work out for you? Let me guess: did they start to dislike you and maybe you have even had people blocking you?
What do you think is better? Do you want to be the hunter who is shunned by everyone or do you want to become the hunted? The Internet Marketer that people want to do business with?
If you want to become the hunted on Facebook then you need to be doing Attraction Marketing. This where people come to you and ask you what you do.
There are 4 key phases in Attraction Marketing:
- Build Your Audience: add people to your friend's list. You need eyeballs on what you have to offer.
- Provide Valuable Content: your content serves as a hook designed to grab your reader's attention and keep them coming to your profile.
- Engage with your audience: Facebook is a social platform. So if people comment on your content, what should you do? Respond to their comments.
- Sell to your audience: a sales pitch straight out of the gate will not work. But if you provide your audience will valuable content nobody will begrudge when the odd post is promotional.
In the world of Facebook Marketing, your content will either make or break you.
Most marketers apply the following formula when creating content:
- Results: you want to showcase your results if you can. It gives social proof.
- Lifestyle: just as people want to see what you look like, they are also curious as to what you do in your spare time. So indulge them. Share what you get up to with your audience.
- Value: your value posts are designed to preframe or prequalify your audience as to what you have to offer and how it can benefit them.
When done correctly, Attraction Marketing is an extremely powerful tool.
Earlier this year, I generated hundreds of leads directly from my Facebook profile for one business opportunity. So free organic traffic from Facebook is not to be scoffed at.
If you would like help with creating content for Facebook that gets your audience reaching out to you, then you can get instant access to a FREE 5 part video series that will teach you how to create great content. No credit card is required.

Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways for beginners to start making money online.
Simply put, Affiliate Marketing allows anyone to promote somebody else's product to earn commissions.
Once you register for an opportunity, you will be able to get hold of your affiliate link and start promoting.
However, most people struggle to generate consistent income through affiliate marketing. Often, they do not understand the basics.
Most people assume that simply sharing an affiliate link is enough to generate a sale. Sadly, it no longer works like that.
So this is where My Online Startup can bridge the knowledge gap. How so?
My Online Startup is a FREE affiliate marketing program.

My Online Startup also has a Partner program.
The Partner program allows you to earn commissions if you wish to treat this as a business.

Benefits of joining as a Partner:

If you want to earn a substantial income online, you need to consider High Ticket Affiliate Marketing.
Why is that?
There is nothing wrong with promoting low ticket offers I do that as well.
But the truth is, if you are looking to reach your money goals quickly then high ticket is the answer.
To illustrate, if you want to earn $1000 a month (extra), based on 100% commission if you sell:
a $7 product - you need to sell 142 items every month.
a $97 product - you need to sell 10 items every month.
a $500 product - you need to sell 2 items every month.
a $1000 product - you need to sell 1 item every month.
If you see value in having a high ticket offer and would like a high ticket product to promote then I highly recommend this opportunity: https://bit.ly/3joqurE
It is one of the best opportunities out there and is designed to fit every budget.
Why not check it out and see what it can do for you? What would an additional $1K - $3k every month do for you?
If you have any questions, don't hesitate ask.
This must be the easiest opportunity on the planet right now!
You refer someone to a Facebook Group.
The magic link does the rest. That's it!
If your referral buys anything that purchase is tracked back to you.
How cool is that?
Oh and you can put the wallet away.
It won't cost you a dime.

Trying to sell products online to earn commissions is simple but by no means easy.

How would you like to earn money without selling? Is that even possible?
I say yes, absolutely.
There are companies that will pay you commissions without selling.
Here are just two examples. Both companies are free to join:

As this year draws to a close, it is time for many people to set goals for the coming year.
Have you set your goals for 2019 yet?
I wrote an article about personal goals for 2019. You can read it here:
Many people shy away from blogging for a variety of reasons. Some might feel that blogging is too time-consuming, others may reason that they are not good enough to write. Another group might feel that they do not have expert knowledge to write on a given topic.
Whatever your reason for avoiding blogging, I see blogging as a key activity for internet marketers.
Blogging is another vehicle you can use to communicate your ideas and thoughts on any given subject. Now as an Internet marketer that is extremely powerful! Why?
People go to Google every day looking for information or a solution to a problem. Can you imagine being able to satisfy your audience with a solution to a problem through the written word?
The beauty of blogging is that people can read your blog posts such as this one 24/7, anywhere in the world...for as long as they have internet access!
People buy from people that they Know Like and Trust. By communicating with your audience regularly, they are building their trust in you especially if they keep coming back to read your content.
The cool thing is you absolutely do not need to be an expert to write content.
I found this article in a community I am part of that can help you write content for your blogs more effectively: http://trck.me/479517/
Ever heard the expression: the money is in the list? I bet you have!
The reality is the money is in the rapport or relationship that you have with the people on your list.
What drives people to buy? Getting a sale is not as easy as you think! If you don't believe me then I urge you to read the following article: http://trck.me/456616/
However building a list is a great way of selling and getting repeat business from the same people over and over again.
Would you like to build a list but have no idea where to begin?
Fear not. I have the solution you are looking for. This is a task based course that will teach you the nuts and bolts of building a list.
You can have a look at it here. It is free to register: http://trck.me/456600/
Mark Twain once said that: "The secret of getting ahead is getting started."
I don't know about you but I find out it astonishing how many people will join an online opportunity and then will not even log into to their Back Office.
Success loves speed!
If you join a business opportunity why not take the time to log into your Back Office, check out the training and then put together an action plan and actually get started?
You simply cannot make any money online if you are not prepared to invest time into working your business.
So Carpe Diem!
Make a commitment to yourself to get started today!
Being successful in an online business requires having an audience.
You need to have eyes trained on your affiliate offers constantly if you are going to be make any sales.
I have found it beneficial to join some advertising platforms that can help provide greater exposure to your product or service.

1) Leadsleap: http://trck.me/434350/
2) Cashjuice: http://trck.me/476291/

7) GoHubz: http://trck.me/485244/ (brand new in December 2019)
All these sites have other valuable ways you can use to build your audience and that is precisely why I have included them in my list.
Everyone has to start somewhere in life as far as I am concerned.
It simply isn't possible to know everything there is to know about affiliate marketing from the word the go.
Whilst it is possible to research the topic online, I have found it beneficial to be part of communities that give you the foundational knowledge you need to get you started fast.
There is a company whose services I use that can provide you with the knowledge you need to get started as an affiliate marketer.
You will get 10 lessons on affiliate marketing absolutely free. What I love is that you can also build two websites with them absolutely free.
You can check them out here: http://trck.me/StandOut/
Now I do know that at times, we can be skeptical about the benefit of partnering with a company.
So if you want to know whether their training in affiliate marketing is of any use, I highly recommend that you read this article from a fellow member with current examples of members who have benefited from the training.
