Article Marketing — Real-Time Market Research Targeted to YOU

I just popped over to check my statistics on EzineArticles, and (once again) was pretty surprised by the data. Some of my articles are waaaaay ahead of others in numbers of views. The click-through numbers are very different for some than others. And the keywords people are searching on to find my articles are close to – but NOT the same as – the ones I specified for the article. Wow! I am constantly amazed at how much I learn when I check my statistics. If you are using Article Marketing in your business, you know how powerful it is.…

Efficient Management of your Time-Part 2

It’s all about maintaining focus and building momentum. Here are a few things I’ve found to…

Never Lose Your Critical Data Again!

Recently, a marketing friend of ours relayed a horror story of how his entire website went down, and he did not have an up-to-date backup of the site. In listening to his woes, Mynders and I realized how close we had come, on more than one occasion, to dodging that same bullet. Have you ever sat down in front of your computer just to discover you had a black screen? Data Loss. If it hasn’t happened to you yet, it will. Plan on it – better yet, plan ahead (by creating an incremental backup) so that when it happens, you…

Add Momentum to Your Business

Sometimes, the right action in building your internet business is to take a detour from your normal routine. Just prior to Thanksgiving, Deb and I completed intense preparations for our recent Swipe File Teleseminar and were looking forward to the next week off with friends in Phoenix. Having worked intensely for months, it was a much needed break. Ultimately, we were on our way, after Thanksgiving, to drop off our camper in California for repairs. So, while in Phoenix, our Lance camper served as a little office for us while visiting our friends…
