If you've tried any of the dozens of List Building programs online, and had little to no success... you're not alone!
I was in the exact same situation, until I heard about this new site:
There are more ways to promote your site with, less effort than you can imagine, than I've ever seen before! Of all of the sites I've used there was always one or two things I really liked about them, but the majority of the features seemed like clutter or a distraction.
Plus, it was way too much work to get any kind of a return on my time! Things have definitely changed for me!
It's like Mike pulled each of my favorite features from my current list builder sites, eliminated all of the things I couldn't stand, and threw in a couple of completely new and cutting edge tactics that make results exponentially better than I had ever thought possible!
If you've tried all of the other sites that have you busting your hump trying to earn credits just a few at a time, then you're in for a shock because Mike makes it almost too easy with the Credit Auctions (where you can actually earn $ by auctioning off your credits... yes real moo lah!), and the "Golden Nugget Email"... Sorry I can't give this one away but you'll soon be addicted and having a blast!
Finally... working online is fun again!
If you need more traffic to your site, your sales pages are lonely or you just want to get better results from your affiliate marketing efforts (yes, you can even promote affiliate programs!), then you need to check out this brand new site:
To Your Newfound Success,
P.S. - There are a limited number of upgraded memberships available, but if they're gone by the time you sign up... Just check out the Support Tab inside the Member's area and let Mike know you want to be put on the wait list when a new spot opens up... talk about increasing your website traffic... this is your Golden Ticket!

Follow your daily plan, as the saying goes "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail". Your daily plan could be the advertising tasks you do everyday, such as Backpage and Craigslist. Then decide what other type of marketing you want to do for the day, such as Forums and/or Business & Social Networking sites, which is what this Newsletter covers.
Business & Social Networking Sites
One of the biggest issues most marketers face is knowing how to attract the right type of traffic for their products, services and affiliate programs. Social marketing and Web 2.0 are here to stay for they have impacted more lives, and reached many times more people than tools such as search engines and web pages. Social networking sites are based on getting likeminded people to do good and it is possible to use the platforms to just talk to people and in the process "sell goods without selling".
I am giving you some basic "Social Networking" tips that you can tap into that I find work pretty well. With any marketing, it's important to stay on top of it as much as possible. However with social networking, it's almost a job in of itself as you have to maintain so many sites. Don't get me wrong, the work you put in to some social networking sites can be worth your time to gain friends, and followers. Use the Firefox browser and "save all your networking sites as a group". This will make it easier for your to visit often.
You know that what you offer is spectacular, but if other people don't know that, you're going to have a really difficult time growing your business. Social networking platforms such as MySpace, Facebook and Yuwie and others, allow you to form relationships with people instantaneously.
In social networking your connection with people is permission based and you establish your global presence. This is just another form of advertising you and your business and for free. The advantage you have with social media marketing over the traditional marketing is that your potential customer gets to know who you are and you begin to build trust. People buy from those they trust. Thus if they do buy, it is because of you, not the company you represent nor the products they don't desire.
The most important feature of your profile is YOUR SIGNATURE. This shows whenever you post a message. So if you are asking, or answering questions, posting new items about free programs, or writing a short article, YOUR SIGNATURE will always be there.
When they read your post, they will see your signature and possibly check it out. Make it compelling:
SUBJECT: $150-$1500+Immediately With No Out of Pocket Costs!
1. You would want to consider choosing a few social networks you enjoy and/or who rank the highest and stick to those. Don't try to do them all. Otherwise you have another full time job! MySpace is number one at the moment and falling in second place is Facebook. You can get flashy with Squidoo where you can create fantastic looking photos or videos on your lens.
2. Don't just sign up without planning to participate to some degree.
It is your participation that gets people to know you and build trust.
3. Make sure to fill out your profile information, the real personal
you so that your potential customer gets to know who you are and you begin to build trust. Photo and web links are very important.
4. Once you have set yourself up, now it is time to socialize. You may
post an article that is factual, relevant and helpful to your readers on some sites.
5. Surf around for others in the same field as you and make some friendships.
6. Give positive comments or shout about their blogs or sites.
7. Post a few 'shouts' a week and keep them public.
8. When someone follows you and asks for friendship, get back to them as soon as possible.
9. Keep your social networks fresh and don't leave them outdated. This is why it is important to just pick a few that you can visit every week. Participate in Business & Social Networking sites that you enjoy. This will give you more traffic because you will be visiting it more.
10. When you 'shout' or post updates don't make them about "come buy or view my products or business". Instead give some relevant free tips, eBooks, or advice that are helpful.
11. Set up a blog (some you can setup a Blog within the network, or a Group) and post articles (best to write your own articles) so that others are aware of your websites. You can use Wordpress or Blogger (both are free). A blog allows you to write short articles on topics pertinent to your customer base. Just make sure you write articles that have useful content to the readers so that they will keep coming back for more. If you post often, the search engines like Google will index it, because they like fresh content.
12. Publish your own Press Release! Tell your story. Give some information about the Free Online Cash System and include your link. Here is mine. Put your Press Release in Blogs, emails, and create doorway pages. You can learn basic HTML and create pages using http://www.angelfire.com
If you join any of Business and Social Networking sites, don't forget to give your links to your Business Associates.

The Six Simple Principles of Viral
In a few short generations, a
virus population can explode.
The Classic Hotmail.com Example
The classic example of viral marketing is Hotmail.com, one of the first
free Web-based e-mail services. The strategy is simple:
- Give away free e-mail addresses and services,
- Attach a simple tag at the bottom of every free message
- "Get your private, free email at http://www.hotmail.com" and,
then stand back while people e-mail to their own
network of friends and associates,
- Who see the message,
- Sign up for their own free e-mail service, and then
- Propel the message still wider to their own
ever-increasing circles of friends and associates.
Like tiny waves spreading ever farther from a single pebble dropped
into a pond, a carefully designed viral marketing strategy ripples outward
Elements of a Viral Marketing Strategy
Accept this fact. Some viral marketing strategies work better than
others, and few work as well as the simple Hotmail.com strategy. But
below are the six basic elements you hope to include in your strategy.
A viral marketing strategy need not contain ALL these elements, but the
more elements it embraces, the more powerful the results are likely to
be. An effective viral marketing strategy:
- Gives away products or services
- Provides for effortless transfer to others
- Scales easily from small to very large
- Exploits common motivations and behaviors
- Utilizes existing communication networks
- Takes advantage of others' resources

All experience marketers know the old adage that “the money is in the list “.Network marketers have developed contact lists in many different ways over the years. Generally a sign up form is offered with a free giveaway. Someone simply fills out the form with a name and e-mail address to “opt in” to the autoresponder and the free giveaway is provided to them. In return for that, they generally understand that they have granted permission for whoever made the offer to follow up with other e-mails with other offers.
Several years ago the singular e-mail opt-in was taken a step further when software was developed that asked the first recipient to forward the offer to 4-5 of there friends in order to qualify for the free giveaway, or perhaps even a very low priced offering. Hence, list building became viral, meaning that a single e-mail to a single individual could be multiplied in a near exponential manner as each level of opt-ins continued to forward the offer to even more people.
The Web 2.0 World
Of course the latest to trend in the network and internet marketing community is the Web 2.0 world of blogs, YouTube, Twitter and the like. The use of videos in various social networks in order to communicate and establish a following with the subscribers has become ubiquitous. The net result of all this is that seemingly the most effective way to communicate with potential subscribers, or even to acquire subscribers and customers these days is probably through the use of videos.
Videos have a number of advantages, including the ability to present yourself as a sincere and a knowledgeable person in a face-to-face way. A potential subscriber or customer is more likely to buy from someone they they feel like they know. So
consequently, it’s almost imperative these days that you use the video medium in order to communicate with potential prospects to turn them into eventual customers.
The New Viral Video World
Interestingly, a new video software system to build a contact list and potentialcustomer list virally has been introduced. Internet guru Joel Therien, CEO ofKiosk.ws, is in the process of launching very easy to use video building software called Easy Video Producer that has the potential to be a very effective way of generating contacts in a viral manner. This system is unique because the software itself is being offered as the free giveaway for this video “tell-a-friend” system. Essentially, the system will offer you free and extraordinarily easy to use video generating software that builds and posts your personally produced video and information capture form on a website or blog. A contact management system is included with the free offer as well.
The viral concept is that you would then attract traffic to introduce yourself to the prospect in a more personal way, offering them the opportunity to opt in and use the same free software that you used to prepare the video. The prospect and new contact would in turn use his free new system to attract even more potential contacts for his list and yours as well.
As in the earlier e-mail systems, the originator of the viral distribution of the free software would have access to every subscriber in the levels below him. So, what is offered is a system that provides a free and very simple (even a cave man could
The Issues I See
The problems with this system are not dissimilar from those in other earlier systems of using free giveaways to build a list. . You first must be able to get your video in front of an audience and in order for them to subscribe, and they in turn must have an audience to subscribe in order for the system to work effectively. It can probably be most effectively used by someone who already has a subscriber list and wants to expand it rapidly.
Another potential negative is that the the new contacts you generate with this list, both directly and indirectly, are not yet buyers and it’s likely that many of them will have no interest in your particular marketing niche. Proper strategy of course is to build credibility over time through a series of value adding free offers that are designed to help categorize their interests. Only then should you move on to the stage of offering them the opportunity to buy your stuff.
This new easy video producer software system appears to offer a simple and easy, no cost way for the experienced, and particularly the relatively inexperienced non-technical networker to make effective use of videos for viral list building, and business promotion.

While article submission isn't anything shockingly new to the world of SEO, many people STILL don't do it... and for good reason. It takes so incredibly long to do manually.
I'll admit, I had tried article submission at one point, but after I finally found a few article dircetories to submit my articles to, and then after manually copying and pasting my information into the required textboxes on each submission site, I quickly realized that my time could be better spent doing something else.
Then I came across a free program created by Brad Callen and Bryxen Software, Inc. that allows you to automatically submit your articles to hundreds of article directories with a few mouse clicks. Basically all I had to do was input my article criteria into the software, ONCE! Then, the program would automatically fill in all of the required data at each of the submission websites. Pretty incredible if you ask me.
The only part I didn't understand was why the program is free... but I can't argue with that I suppose.
The software currently contains around 700 article directories, all free to submit your articles to. It is the most straightforward program that we've come across, in that all you need to do is:
1. Input your article details (i.e. title, article body, bio, etc.) into the software
2. Click on the directory you want to submit to
And then the program will automatically fill in your article details. Then, you simply click the submit button and your article is instantly submitted to the directory. Then, you can move to the next directory, go through the list, and by the time you're finished you'll have roughly 700 one way links pointing to your website.
I can't think of an easier way to get links. Of course, if you're going to get links this quickly, it's important to submit different variations of your articles, to make things look more natural to the search engines.
You can do this very easily via Article Submitter when you create your project in the beginning.
The software is constantly being updated and their is an incredible community of users established that all work together to make the software better and better, so you know you're getting great value for the money.
