Fighting Spam!

It's been nearly a decade since spammers and their enemies begun evolving competitively. As with the classic cheetah/gazelle model originally formulated by Darwin, each time one group becomes a little faster or more agile, its adversaries develop traits for outwitting and outrunning it.

In addition to wasting people's time with unwanted e-mail, spam also eats up a lot of network bandwidth. Consequently, there are many organizations, as well as individuals, who have taken it upon themselves to fight spam with a variety of techniques. But because the Internet is public, there is really little that can be done to prevent spam, just as it is impossible to prevent junk mail.

Nobody wants it or ever asks for it. No one ever eats it; it is the first item to be pushed to the side when eating the entree. Sometimes it is actually tasty, like 1% of junk mail that is really useful to some people.

The number of unsolicted commercial electronic messages received by the average American in 2001 was 571, according to Jupiter Media Metrix. By 2006, Jupiter says, that number will increase to 1,400, with more than 206 billion spam messages going out over the course of the year. While these numbers are notoriously difficult to calculate, every survey and ISP record points to dramatic increases in spam, sometimes as much as 300 percent year over year. One reliable indicator of the problem's magnitude is the size of the anti-spam effort. The range of tools available to ISPs, enterprises and consumers in the fight against spam grew considerably during the Web bubble. Simultaneously, heavyweight Web marketers and interactive ad players have been scrambling to distinguish their services from the bad guys, as well as to counteract growing calls for government controls on digital marketing.

In one of the biggest such moves, the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), through its subsidiary, the Association of Interactive Marketing (AIM), has released online commercial solicitation guidelines in an effort to promote high ethical standards among marketers. The rules require that members let e-mail recipients know how they can refuse future mailings and allow consumers to prevent the sale or rental of their addresses

3 Simple Tips For Making Money Online Even If You Don’t Have Anything To Sell!

Have an idea about making money online but don’t know where to start?

There are several ways to make money on the Internet – even if you don’t have a product to sell. Keep in mind that running an online business takes time and effort, just like running any business. However, you can get started without any products, which is one less roadblock for most people wanting to start a business.

You don’t need to be a computer expert to run an online business, but you do need to either be able to set up a website, or have the resources to pay someone else to do it for you.

Here are 3 simple ways to make money online even if you don’t have your own product:

Affiliate programs

Being an affiliate means you are selling other people’s products, and you get a percentage of the sale, or you make a small fee for each person who requests more information. Most major retailers offer affiliate programs, along with many smaller retailers (with lots of good products and services). It’s not a good idea to try to compete with an established retailer like Wal-Mart, Target, or Circuit City. A better way to make money is to find a “niche” that serves a smaller group of people, that you can easily reach.

For example, rather than selling sporting goods to everyone, you might start a fishing site that sells canoes and fishing products to people who like fresh water fishing. You can also find smaller retailers who may offer more specialized products to those who know a lot about fishing, while selling the basics from Wal-Mart to beginners.

A good place to start is Commission Junction (, and you’ll get an idea of the products you can offer. Be creative in finding your niche, start with something you know a little about, or enjoy doing, and before long you can be making money online!

Adsense from Google

Adsense is an advertising program from search engine (there are other advertising programs you can offer, but for now Google’s is the biggest and most popular). By placing ads on your site, you earn money for each person who clicks on the ad. Google will automatically determine which ads are best for your site, based on the topic of each web page. All you have to do is place the code on your web page, and Google does the rest.

You can also sell individual ads, and determine your own terms and price. But using a program like Google is simple, and if your set gets a lot of visitors, you can make good money. Again, the best way to succeed is to find a niche, create a website around that topic, and Google will be able to determine the best ads for your visitors.

Write a “How-To” booklet

If you don’t want to sell other people’s products, but don’t have a lot of money to create your own, a simple way to get started is to write your own “how-to” booklet. Pick a topic you know enough to write about, and start writing. Information products are always good sellers – the key is to solve a particular problem. “How to catch fresh water fish” or “How to plan a fishing vacation on a tight budget” are possibilities for the fishing niche mentioned above.

To learn more, do a search for “creating information products” or “writing e-books”, and you will find lots of resources. Once you create your product, offers a simple service to help you sell your information product, and there are others to help you get started.

Again, be creative, there are lots of problems out there that people need help with. And offering a good solution can make you lots of money!

Making money online takes more than just building a website. You need to pick the right products or services. Then you need to find the right audience to sell those products and services. Then you need to promote your website to enough people so you can make money. For now, you should have enough ideas to get you started – even if you don’t have a product to sell yet!

Hidden Costs In Free Offers

For every one entrepreneur who learns how to earn money on the internet, there are many more wanting to do the same thing. So, the ratio of success to failure increases as the gap between the two groups gets bigger.

One of the by-products of this growing gap is the increase of traffic in opportunity offers as the result of the increase in successful projects. There is no doubt that opportunity abounds, but in any endeavor it takes time, a resource that is in short supply especially if your not quite ready to “fire your boss”.

After getting past free promotion, bonus packages, and getting down to business, a knowledge gap appears. At this point the relation between time and easy, or time and low cost, is starting to look more like a liability instead of an asset.

I think of my time as a valuable asset that must be leveraged to increase its value. Similarly, money is an asset if more comes in than is paid out. So I invest time as I do money, by evaluating the risk and return on investment. Therefore costs hidden in free offers are mainly based on the value of time.

Not all opportunities are created equal in the leverage department. Once you find out that “easy” is not the same as the time it takes to get your business produce a profit, your time has been leveraged by someone else at your expense. When time and money liability becomes unsustainable, the opportunity is forgone for stories about internet business that doesn’t work.

Many investments in so called easy to follow, step-by-step, methods lead to monthly liabilities like service fees for an ISP, leads, autoresponders, etc. Until income exceeds the cash flowing out, the liability is compounded by the time it takes to learn how to build the business to profit and you’ll likely need deep pockets to leverage your time. Alternatively, opportunity with a fixed cost changes the time leverage factor in your favor.

Fortunately, I discovered one such opportunity that’s like a Swiss army knife because of the multi-function it delivers. Once past the red flags of big money, low cost, network building, and leveraging time for marketing, this extraordinary opportunity earned its place in my portfolio because it is also an object lesson, a bonus to learning how to leverage time and money to build your business.

There were only three payments to start-up, a total one-time expense less than a 1 year domain rental liability. Software and eBook products were delivered immediately upon purchase. In a few easy steps, I had signed up for merchant accounts that now enable me to do transactions internationally. All I do now is promote the site along with my other internet business investments.

If you don’t have a low maintenance high potential earner in your portfolio yet or would like an object lesson to test your existing investments, please drop by my site for the link or email me.

4 Things Web Analytics Can Teach You - What Your Traffic’s Telling You

Brick-and-mortar stores often change displays, move goods around, and put impulse items beside checkouts. The reason behind these changes is they’re analyzing customer traffic and studying behavioral patterns to understand how consumers shop. As an online retailer, you need to study your customer traffic as well in order to increase sales.

Listen: Your Customers Are Talking

There are a number of web traffic analytics companies, such as and, that analyze your customers’ shopping patterns. They follow your customers’ clicks to and through your web pages and provide you with valuable info on how your customers experience your website:

1. You see which keywords bring you, not only the most hits, but also the highest conversion rates. People often find the generic words they use bring them a great deal of traffic, but that traffic averages a shorter stay on the site. The longer people spend on your site, the more likely they are to buy something. Analyzing that data allows you to see which keywords are effective for you.

2. You see the average amount of time users spend on your site. Due to latent conversion, this is a good indicator of how business will be in the coming months. If your users are taking their time, looking at things carefully, that tells you they’re really interested and will likely come back to complete the transaction.

3. You see if your traffic’s leaving as soon as they hit your landing page—if they are, you know you have a problem. As soon as users get there, you want to reinforce to them they’re in the right place. Says John Marshall, founder and CEO of, “Make sure the keyword the user clicked is associated with, and strongly connected to the copy in that landing page, and throughout the experience… Just paying attention to that could probably get you a 20% to 50% improvement in your conversion rate.”

4. You see where people are exiting your site. This is especially important when you have customers leaving in the middle of checkout. If you see a high rate of users, with full shopping carts, leaving on a particular page, you can pinpoint what’s costing you sales:

• If they’re exiting on the page where you explain shipping costs, you might see your shipping appears higher than your competitors’.

• If they’re leaving halfway through filling out the buyer’s information, you might consider that your buyer questionnaire’s too long.

Web analytics puts you in a position to see what’s working on your website and what isn’t. It’s a way to see where you need to make changes and then measure how effective those changes are.

See you next time

This is my journey.  I hope that it will inspire, help, and possibly get others to understand how to obtain their own legacy path.

I wanted to find a way to help my family become independent.  Independent from the constraints of trading time for money.  I wanted to find a way to find more quality time to enrich my life as well as the lives of those around me.

Having these dreams is nothing new for people in general.  However, with the way that we are taught in society today, our dreams are usually left as unobtainable.  Only those who truly want to become independent find ways to do so.

You as a person must go and challenge conventional thinking and the way things are done.  You as a person may alienate your family and friends because they don't truly understand what you are doing.  Look deep within yourself everyday to keep pushing forward.

As we progress together, I hope that the value I deliver will benefit you.  If you would like to know more and get our newsletter in your inbox, please visit and fill out the form.

We look forward to serving you!
