I faced and overcame one of my fears…

One of the things I hate most in IM is doing video or audio interviews. To be honest I hate it so much I’ve turned down countless opportunities to be interviewed over the years, which is crazy when you consider how much free exposure I’ve missed out on for my Internet business. I think a…

Why I won’t give up nursing…

I’ve been asked a number of times why I’m still going out to work a couple of days a week and to be honest after the last 3 rather crappy days I’ve had on the wards, I sometimes wonder that myself. But I guess I’m fooling myself because at the moment anyway and despite the rotten…

Yikes I’ve come down with Shiny Object Syndrome..

Ahh shiny object syndrome, a malady that strikes at most Internet marketers at some point in their online career. I’ve always warned folks about buying stuff they don’t need, yet I have to admit I’ve bought more than my fair share of the latest online gizmo’s over the past several years that lay unused cluttering up…

Build it and they will come…

Did you ever watch that film ‘field of dreams’? where Kevin Costner started hearing voices telling him to build a baseball field in the middle of his farm? Everyone thought he was bonkers, but once he built it, then hordes of folks started turning up etc… Well I hate to disappoint anyone, but that was…

How Do YOU approach someone to promote (JV) your product!

After posting my JV post further below it got me thinking about how folks go about inviting others to promote their product especially if the person they are approaching is a well known ‘guru’ Back in the day I used to get a lot of requests to promote other marketer’s stuff, (I still get requests…

I’ve just sacked a customer and boy does it feel good…

One of the most satisfying things when you have toiled and sweated online is selling your products to those people eager to buy them. There is nothing quite like getting the notification emails from your payment processor of choice to tell you you’ve made a sale. In fact, I’m such a sad person that when…

So how judgmental are YOU exactly??

I was talking to Tony Shepherd the other day about a blog post he’d written I found particularly interesting. BTW if you’re not following him online you should be as he’s one of the most successful online marketer’s in the UK. Get on his list and see how email marketing is done by a professional!!! Anyway…

Are you a spelling/grammar Nazi? (Because I am)…

I was reading a blog post earlier today about spelling and grammar and it really got me thinking about a pet hate of mine which is spelling and grammatical errors, especially in sales pages. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ll admit to making the odd spelling and grammatical error, but on the whole I’m a bit…

Happy Mother’s Day…

It’s Mother’s day here in the UK and I must confess to feeling slightly maudlin over it as I don’t have a mother to send a card to any more. (I’ve been thinking about her a lot today). My mum Sheila died 5 years ago in August when she was 74, she’d been ill for…

Outsourcing is easypeasy (Part 3)

The last time I discussed outsourcing we talked about getting writers for articles etc. Today I want to touch on the topic of coders and programmers, which can be a very touchy subject because I’ve found in my quite long experience working with coders that some of them can have pretty huge ego’s and fragile…

Is your blog a naughty blog?

I’m doing a course at the moment which includes being part of a blogroll and  we’re all encouraged to comment on each other’s blogs. I was a bit leery at first about being a part of something like this as I wondered whether it would smack of link farming, but I thought what the hell…

Are you a team player? If not then good for you…

The other day I was accused of not being a team player, the reason being (if you’re interested) was because I refused to indulge in the totally pointless random idiocy of submitting ridiculous banal crappy posts via Face book in support of Breast Cancer. Well guess what, I’ve never really been a team player as…

Wow I’m really back in the zone…

Wow I’m really in the Zone now and working really hard on my Internet biz and the thing is everything now seems to be coming together just brilliantly. I’m starting to realize that even though I thought I was working previously in reality I was just sort of chewing on the fringes of what I needed…

Outsourcing is easypeasy (Part 2)

I realized the other day (and after a couple of comments on the post about outsourcing that it’s all very well talking about outsourcing your work to other people when you know how to go about it, but what about those folks who don’t have a clue where to start? So I thought I’d offer…

Outsourcing is easypeasy…

You know just because you can’t do something doesn’t mean you cant have it, this is a truth I’ve learned well over the past few years whilst being in IM. I’ve heard so many people  say they couldn’t possibly sell anything online or they don’t have the time to develop an idea they’ve had etc…

Phil Gosling and Success Engineering…

Way back in 2004 I read a book by an entrepreneur  I’d admired since I first went online called Phil Gosling. I’d been following Phil for a couple of years by then, I’d come across him quite by chance back in 2002 when I first started online myself. Phil had a home publishing course at the…

For God’s sake, just get the damn thing up…

One of the things I hate most is hearing folks make all sorts of excuses for not putting their websites online and the most common one I hear is it’s not ready for people to see yet!!! It’s one of the biggest mistakes folks make, they don’t want their website up and running on the…

Are you able to support the Trussell Trust?

One of the things you may or may not know about me is I passionately support The Trussell Trust a charity which is dedicated to feeding the hungry people of the UK. Most Thursday’s I toddle off to our local distribution center to help hand out  food parcels to those who need it and I…
