There is a science — a formula — to getting rich


Almost everyone has their own theory on how to survive the recession, such as:

1. Keep/protect your job
2. Move in while others are distracted
3. Earn extra money where you can
4. Evaluate your mortgage
5. Refinance high interest credit cards
6. Reduce spending as much as you can
7. Haggle your way to savings on purchases
8. Conserve energy and reduce your home bills
9. Don’t take on any unnecessary debts

I really could go on and on with suggestions like this, but I’m pretty sure you’ll know it all already. You can Google it for yourself anyway and find plenty more advice from every Tom, Dick and Harry out there.

So let’s get straight to the point.

With so many ways and so much advice, how come not everyone gets rich? How come not everyone who reduces their spending get rich? How come not everyone who has an education get rich? How come not everyone who starts a business get rich?

Because it’s not about what you do, it’s about how you do it. No matter how many ways there are, if you don’t do it RIGHT — whichever method you choose — it won’t bring RESULTS.

So what is the ONE right thing that you need to do to get rich?

Bob Proctor & Jack Canfield are men who know and they want to tell you that there is a science — a formula — to get rich. It’s about doing certain things in a certain way. This blueprint has been proven to make anyone get rich across centuries.

So before you waste your time trying out endless ways blindly, get this one formula that will transform your financial future.

Send your free Earth Day ecard now!

Frederikke and Timothy from ojolie.com have added a new card called “Blue Planet” to their selection of  animated ecards just in time for Earth Day on 22nd April.  The wildlife in the card, especially the dolphins, our intelligent counterparts below water, have an important message to deliver.

Earth Day, held on April 22 each year, marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970 and is  now celebrated around the world.

Earth Day 2009 will herald the beginning of the “Green Generation Campaign”; a two-year project culminating with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day in 2010. The Green Generation’s core principles are:

1.  A carbon-free future based on renewable energy that will end dependency on fossil fuels, including coal.

2.  A commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption on an individual level

3.  Creation of a new green economy that addresses poverty by creating millions of quality green jobs and sees the global education system transform into a green one.

For those of you who missed helping to save energy during Earth Hour on March 28th, here is another chance to spread the word about helping our environment by sending Frederikke’s delightful card to your friends.

Best wishes

Affiliate Marketing – some thoughts and ideas

Affiliate Marketing – what exactly is it?

Put simply, it is process where you as the affiliate sell or promote someone else’s product or service and you receive a commission for your efforts. Affiliate Marketing is usually considered to be the lowest cost business model when starting an Online Business, and as such is the most popular method with many newcomers to Internet Marketing. The owners or licence holders of the product you promote can be called authors, publishers, merchants or other different terms, depending on whether it is a physical or an information product that you are promoting and how the commission payments are organised.

This business model can take many different forms but are commonly called Affiliate Programs. You join the affiliate program a merchant is using to sell a particular product you are interested in promoting. The most common types of programs are as follows:

  1. Pay per click – each visitor you send to the merchant’s site will earn you a commission.
  2. Pay per lead – each lead you send to the merchant’s site will earn you a commission.
  3. Pay per sale – commission will be paid by publishers for each sale made at his website or on sites such as clickbank or paydotcom.

Each one of the above methods returns a certain payment for delivering the click, lead, or sale. By far the largest number of businesses utilizing this model work on a Pay per Sale system. There are hundreds of affiliate networks that you can join where the owners of the site have numerous publishers registered so you can choose products & promote them without have to join up to all the separate affiliate programs. Examples of such sites are Commission Junction, Clix Galore, Clickbank, PayDotCom and Click2sell.

Many Internet Marketers will guide the beginner into Affiliate Marketing because it is considered to be the cheapest and simplest business model to get started and develop, especially when all the marketing tools such as a web sales page, promotional emails, articles, press releases etc are provided by the publisher.

Your main costs will be in the promotion of the product or service. All costs associated with the product, sales page, delivery, after sales services, as well as merchant services set up and costs, will be paid by the merchant providing the product.

When starting your Internet Business through affiliate marketing there are five steps to follow:

  1. Find your niche market which shows enough demand as well as a reasonable supply, as well as one that would support future business growth.
  2. Find out what the market is searching for in terms of solutions to problems, or a product/service for which there is a shortage of supply or even a deficiency.
  3. Research the available affiliate products and services for something that will fill the deficiency or fix the problem.
  4. Promote the product by every means available to you.
  5. Although this is not necessarily essential, owning your own website can increase your methods of promotion, but more importantly it allows you to pre-sell the product before redirecting them to the merchant’s sales page.

The final item regarding your own website needs serious consideration as it will be the best way towards developing and growing your business and to start creating an opt-in list of targeted potential customers.

Creating a trust between yourself and your customers, as well as your partners, is of prime importance to your business. This trust will serve you well as your customers will gradually consider you to be their expert in this niche and they will take your recommendations and buy.

To help build this relationship of trust, give value to potential customers by offering something useful to them for free. The more value you give them, the more they will be inclined to make purchases from you at a later date. Do not think for one minute that without it you will be able to succeed in affiliate marketing or any other type of business if you do not build a relationship of trust with a list of potential customers.

A Wedding in the Family

I have just returned from a five day trip to the south of Western Australia to attend the wedding of one of my daughters and what a lovely time it was. Because they all live on the other side of the country, I don’t see my children and grandchildren as much as I would like to, so I was very happy to see them all at the wedding.

We stayed in a resort in Dunsborough, right next to the Margaret River wine area, which enjoys a very pleasant climate, perfect for weddings, not too hot and not cold. Perfect for grapes, too as there are many superb wines from this region.

Our food was excellent as well but I think the greatest pleasure in these occasions is meeting new people and catching up with those we already know. It is for me, anyway and now I know someone who lives in Tasmania! I haven’t been there yet so it will be nice to call in and say hello when I do make a trip there in the future.

I am very lucky. I like all my relatives including those who have come into my extended family through marriages and partnerships. We are all different, from different countries and cultures, but we are also all the same. We all eat, breathe and sleep; we all love, laugh and cry and I am eternally grateful that we all work together, helping each other when there is a need.
