Scams, Scammers and Scam-busters

Scams are done by scammers; we know that, but what happens when the scam-busters are also the scammers?

Scammers are always on the lookout
for people to fleece. If they think they can make a buck off someone,
they will try, no matter how desperate and broke that person might be.

Scams still abound, scammers still hustle their scams, and there still aren’t enough real scam-busters to go around.

Why do scammers exist, in the first place? Why aren’t they extinct already?

The answer is, because it’s just so
darn easy and lucrative for people with no conscience to scam those who
aren’t paying attention. It’s so darn easy, because it’s so easy to find
the people who aren’t paying attention.

There are those who genuinely do their own due diligence, and want to see the real scammers driven from the internet (and the planet!!)

There are those who want someone else
to do the work of due diligence for them, because they don’t really
know how to do it, or they are unsure of their own abilities and cannot
afford to get scammed.

 

Common Sense Marketing

Is there such a thing as common sense marketing?

Have you ever wondered how many ways you can market?

There is

direct marketing

email marketing

social media marketing

network marketing

but have you ever  thought about

common sense marketing?

Well I had a chance to think about this form of marketing when I was talking to an Adlandpro member (BJ Williams)  asking for a bit of help as I was having a problem thinking of something to write about ( it happens at times)

Because I used the common sense
marketing approach (unwittingly) I  had asked BJ Williams to give me
some ideas to write about and then I fine tuned it to if you were
wanting an answer to a marketing question what would it be?

Email Marketing Resources

Email Marketing resources for the affiliate marketer.

Regardless of whether you are running a small business or as an affiliate marketer creating an affiliate business, email is still a very viable and needed method for marketing your products and services.

Unfortunately, email marketing is also complicated as you have to consider such things as

~ What is the right message you want to send

~ Does the subject line convey the right message that people will want to know more

~ How are you creating an imagery for your readers?Email marketing is not just about the words you use but the imagery you are conveying –

The issue of creating, maintaining and building your lists and lets not forget that you need to measure the outcome of any email you send!

Everything is important and needs to come together so that your customer or subscriber will receive the email at the proper time!

The subscriber will open the email!

The subscriber will receive a good call to action!

(with the “ultimate goal” of the customer buying from you and not the bloke down the street!)

To clarify the last point – while the ultimate goal is for the customer to buy from you, you should never confuse the email with a landing page and many people do just that.

To keep it simple or using the K.I.S.S principle, your email copy is about getting people to click on your o

Subject Line

Subject Line: Why’s He Got a Turnip in his Pipe?

By Dave Cottrell

Subject line – Why’s He Got a Turnip in his Pipe? Did that make you a bit curious? If you got that subject line in your email, would you open it? Could you resist opening it? Good!

Dr. Suess is very familiar to many of us. If you are under a hundred years old and you have children or grandchildren, you probably read books to them written by Dr. Suess. “The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Go, Dog, Go,” are just a few of the familiar titles. How does Dr. Suess help you in getting people’s attention?

Copy writing is a skill that can make all the difference between making a sale or not, but unless you get people’s attention, first, the best copy in the world is just not going to get read.

Dr. Suess, used to do things like walking onto a bus “smoking” a pipe with a turnip in it. People would come up to him and ask him why he was smoking a pipe with a turnip in it! His answer was simple. “So that people will ask me why I have a turnip in my pipe!”

What a great way to start a conversation!!

This is what we’re all trying to do when we create a headline, an email subject line, a tweet or a share on FB and any other social media we use. 

Free Tracking Services|Alternative to StatCounter

Free Tracking Services|Alternative to StatCounter

Have you been looking for free tracking services other than Statcounter?   Here are some alternatives for you to think about.

When it comes to having your own blog or website, one of the fundamental tasks you should be doing is analyzing how your site is running.
By looking into the details of who is visiting your site and other important stats such as where they are from, the times they come and how they behave when on your site is going to be very important so that you can give the right information, the right service and even the right product to fit your reader ( users) needs.
The reason for this post is because a question was asked by one our Adlandpro members ( BJ Williams) on the affiliate support  group on Adlandpro, where the talk of tracking and free tracking  services are being talked about.
BJ was wondering if there are other great free tracking services (systems on the web).

eBay Seller tips

eBay seller tips that might be of use to you

When it comes to using Ebay for selling and buying, I can confess outright that I am less than a novice.
I did manage to get my courage up to buy a product a year ago and talk about being nervous- let me count the ways lol.
While that may sound very silly to people who buy and sell on eBay on  a frequent basis, it’s a very normal feeling for those who have never done it and have few concepts on what to expect.
Now I know there are a lot of people who are using eBay for selling and making a good income from it and I have to admit that selling on eBay  has been a topic of interest for me since I bought that product ( P.S it came within a couple of days in the original packing and has been working like a charm since I got it.)
Considering how many of these “same” products were on eBay, I had to question myself, what drew me to that particular listing of the “adobe PDF maker” where I felt that this was the best listing for me and where I said “yes” to buying this product.
I think there were a few factors to be honest, of course there was the price ( which was decent- but not the cheapest) to the title,the  description  and the images that were shown.

Take the Marketing Challenge

Take the Marketing Challenge, if you dare!

by Dave Cottrell

Take the marketing challenge;  it could change your life.

I have a challenge for you that I think the majority of people trying to make money online should really take me up on.  I’ll tell you more about that in a minute.
First, let me get this off my chest…
Once again, I open my mail and see yet another program being promoted by fiends – I mean “friends” from various popular social media communities who will probably NEVER make a thin dime with it, but who WILL pay money out of their pockets to the parent company, WILL put money into the pockets of someone in their upline, and WILL end up being disillusioned once again about network marketing in general.
Yes, I am speaking of yet another powerline opportunity, where all you have to do is join and you will make an unbelievable fortune with no work and no money ever… Right after you first buy this nice bridge I have for sale…

"Wszystkie dzieci są artystami.Problem jest jak pozostać artystą kiedy się dorośnie ~ PABLO PICASSO"

Hi and what I just said in Polish is a favorite quote of mine

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."

Hello and welcome!

My name is Bogdan Fiedur CEO of Softfornet Solutions LTD

My mission is committed to helping clients with all of their advertising needs, something I have been doing this since 1998.

I realized many years ago, that part of advertising was helping people to connect to each other in a social manner and as a result AdlandPro was conceived & made public in June of 1998.

While I may not look my age lol, I guess I was part of the movement which we call today social networking. I have started one of the first social communities in 2004 which was then extension to Adlandpro Classifieds.

When is a forum not a forum? Answer: when it's morphed into a full social community! Adlandpro has evolved from the simple forum structures you still see today, into a full social network with a full host of features and unlike Facebook, people can vote on what they like and dislike -_^

Welcome to my corner of the net!
