Here's an Amazing Story For You...

A red correct tick In the 1950's, there was a study carried out at Harvard University where the students were questioned about who had goals. Not surprisingly, virtually everyone said they did.

They were then asked how many had actually put these goals into writing.

The answer was only 3% of the group.

This study was followed up 30 years later - and the 3% that had written down their goals were worth more than the other 97% combined.

Amazing or just a coincidence?

That's up to you to decide. But as long as your goals remain inside your head you run the risk of them only ever being dreams.

Please now be HONEST with yourself....

Have you put your goals into writing?

Most people have not.

Most people of course want to do well, but when asked 'what is your goal' they more often than not have a vague 'I-just-want-to-make-some-money' sort of answer.

You need to change this.

You need to have a laser-focused pin-pointed immediate answer of EXACTLY what it is you want to achieve.

If it's a certain figure you are striving for every month - then visualize this EXACT figure.

If it's to change a certain situation you are currently in - then visualize the exact resolution that you want.

This is important - because most people do not have an actual answer to the question 'what is your goal?'

Writing down your goal will achieve this answer for you. And let me tell you - seeing what you want written down - is very empowering!

Try it!

Write it down!

Slap it on your PC or your medicine cabinet or your refrigerator so you see it each day.

It suddenly makes everything 'real'!

I have written my down, why don’t you

The Way To Start Earning on-line

money flying around a bench When I first started online, I was here, there, & everywhere, dabbling in this & that, trying to make money in all kinds of ways.
That's true of most people when they first start online I suppose.
And it's understandable.

At that stage we're traveling through a strange and unknown world of all kinds of technical and marketing wonders, and those smoothly written sales letters are a siren's song to us e-venturers!

In my own search for a bit of Internet Marketing clarity along the way, I discovered a marketing truth that was so easy to state and understand, and yet so profound to me, that I'd like to share it with you here.

7 Tips For Success With EzineArticles.com

A writing pen The key to success with www.ezinearticles.com is quality and employing keywords in the correct density.
Keyword Density means how many times you use a certain keyword in your article.
People tend to overuse keywords with an intention of attracting the search engines but unfortunately what happens is the articles end up reading oddly. I personally prefer to keep the keyword density below 2%.
I realize that recently 1-2% keyword density has been a lot more effective.
However, for a long time 1-3% was the perfect keyword density...at least in my experience.
Here are 7 tips that might help increase your views and Click Throughs.

1. Be serious and professional with your headlines/article titles. And have your strongest keyword in the title too.

2. Talk to your readers in a conversational tone.

3. Be a teacher! Remember your article must give away a solution or some useful knowledge.

4. Use a 1-3% keyword density and try to be as nonchalant as possible with your keyword placement.

5. ALWAYS write 100% unique articles, don't go spinning and twirling.

6. Give a strong, but REALISTIC call to action in your author resource box and include a link to your site of course.

7. Make sure your article delivers what it promises.

Starting An On-line Business – Why the High Rate of Failure

thinking manique Did you know - 97% of people FAIL in Internet Marketing.
Why is that so high?
The answer is because for most an Internet Business is the first time they will have worked for themselves.
Now - there is NOTHING wrong with this - in fact it is to be applauded that many have the entrepreneurial bug...
...but it does mean the majority enter this business needing to learn some new skills first.
Most online at one time or another believe that just HAVING a product - means they are in business (this is not helped by so many so-called gurus who scream from the roof top how easy it is to make money online...)
Now please don't berate yourself if you once thought this - I did when I began! (in 2009)
But I have to tell you...
...a product is not a business.
There are a ton of people with great products - making no money.
And let me add to this.
A website is also not a business - again - there are millions of websites making nothing.
So if a product is not a business - and a website is not a business - what IS a business?
The answer?
