Google + Hangouts Mastery(Link)

December 2013

I have good news – Google has given all marketers access to tool for SERIOUS traffic that anyone can use!

You have arrived at this page because you've been hearing about Google's new social network and their hangout tool, but you want to know how YOU can profit using it. You've probably heard that some people are saying that they are doing everything on hangouts now. But they're not exactly sharing what they're doing with them.

It's crazy how all of the big time marketers tell you WHAT to do and WHAT they did, but they never get around to HOW they did it, HOW you should do it or even WHY you should do it?

So you listen to them and then go hunting on Google to find…"the rest of the story…"

That was EXACTLY where I was when this "Google Hangout" thing was taking off. It seemed like I was getting emails every day telling me I needed to be doing hangouts. So I tried to start doing them, but without really understand what they were supposed to do…people came, but not ONE DIME came as a result of my having my own hangout...It was really frustrating.

And these hangouts took TIME to set up and TIME to get people to come and TIME to get guests...

And still no sale? Something had to give…

So I decided to dive into the subject of Google Hangouts…

And started watching what the gurus DID and stop listening to what they SAID:

I watched what they did before their hangouts…

I watched what they did AFTER their hangouts…

I watched to see what they said to their list about the hangouts…

And after months of watching...there were very clear patterns in what they did (even though they said NOTHING about this…)

But don't worry I am ready to tell you everything that I found and then show you how to do use the SAME tactics and make them work for you…

But before we go ahead, I want you to hear me on this…

02 Cent FaceBook Clicks(Link)

December 2013

I have good news – you don't have to wait months or years to have cheap targeted traffic stampeding to your offers!

You have arrived at this page because you're probably figured out the easy stuff in internet marketing. You probably know how to pick a niche, build websites, shoot videos and do social media. There is only one thing missing…how to find the people that want to buy things and bring them to your offers…

But, isn't it everyone continually teaches on how to do all of the EASY stuff, but it rare to hear about how to get TRAFFIC?

RESULTS: Lots of websites…software…webinars…hangouts, but NO profits.

That is EXACTLY where I was in my business a year ago. I knew how to do all of the right thigns. I knew how to create products, write articles, build squeeze pages, write emails, build autoresponders... But I didn't have a clue as to how to get people to see what I was selling….

The truth is that I was paying out hundreds of dollars every month in lots of cool membership fees and software subscriptions...But my Paypal account didn't have a dime in it from what I sold.

That was before stumbled over (by accident) the power of Facebook Ads…

Then I decided to learn (at great expense) everything there was to know about them:

How to use them…

When to use them….

And most importantly, how to get people to see the stuff I was selling whether or not I was selling affiliate products or offerings of my own.

And I am ready to show you EXACLTY what I know…

But before we go ahead, I want you to hear me on this…

Big Thaw, Social media heats up business relationships(Link)

Atlanta Business Chronicle:
March 2011

When it comes to making professional connections, Jim Browning considers LinkedIn — which boasts 90 million users — to be a key tool. Browning, who spent 32 years with The Coca-Cola Co. before becoming an expert in the use of LinkedIn, uses the business-focused site to find business clients in his role as a North American licensee for people development company Lifestyle Architecture and global distributor of BestWork DATA assessments. Facebook, he adds, is also gaining strength in the business arena, particularly with the recent addition of a tool called BranchOut that connects people with individuals who work and live around them.

“It’s a great research tool, it’s a great information tool and networking tool, but it’s not the only answer. You still need to do the traditional search and cold calls, but what LinkedIn and other social media does for you is turns that cold call into one call because you already know so much about the individual,” he said.

Browning suggests using all social media platforms. With several different Twitter accounts and close to 30,000 followers, Browning
focuses the information on each of his accounts differently and, as a result, reaches a variety of different audiences.

“You can’t determine which one is going to get you a lead in business,” Browning said. “Do them all, but do them all realistically.”


Pinterest Perfection(Link)

December 2013

Let's face it - We all know the fact that Pinterest is the hottest social media site now.

Many do not know they can tapped into this opportunity to build their brand and promote their products.

But as time goes on, more and more people have been learning more about Pinterest and how it can accelerate your business.

"Here's The Good News!"

Anybody ... Regardless of their circumstances can equip themselves with these information about entrepreneur mindset.

But before we go into that, ask yourself, have you ever faced any of these problems in your life?
-- No traffic to your website?
-- Never have a Pinterest account
-- Not sure if Pinterest can generate traffic & sales

Well, you are not alone. I've once walked down this lost path and I told myself that I would do whatever it takes to figure out the solution.

And after years of research and hardship, I've finally found the solution, which I want to share with you today.
