Market Samurai

If you’re serious about Internet Marketing you will already be well aware of the importance of using a sophisticated keyword analysis tool. Market Samurai has been developed as a keyword analysis software to ensure that we have the best chance of success within our niche market. 

 

And the beauty is it is available in its entirety for a free trial if you have never looked at Market Samurai I would advise that you do so as a matter of urgency, in fact straight away. This keyword analysis tool will save you not only time, but the real golden nugget is its ability to bring relevant information straight to your PC.

 

Admittedly it will take some time on mastering all of the keyword analysis software and its key functions, but it is relatively simple to work through after a few hours. We originally purchased Market Samurai through 30 DC and have been using it for several months now.

 

In simple terms it is broken down into eight subcategories:

 

1. Rank Tracker: this will track all of your search engines rankings for any keyword analysis, it will supply a PR, backlinks and SEO indexing and a whole lot more.

 

2. Keyword Research: this function will find all relevant keywords and analyse them in fine detail, this will make choosing your keywords far more relevant for your niche market, rather than a PFA (pluck from air). It incorporates filtering options and after a few hours is dead simple to use.

 

3. SEO Competition: this function gives you the ability to apply keywords analysis to your top 10 competitors or indeed your own site, for any keyword. It also has a facility which will show eight off page SEO factors and five on page ones, all colour-coded for easy reconciliation. Again practice makes perfect but one piece of software such as Market Samurai can bring all this direct to your PC.

 

4. Domains: this tab will locate keyword optimised domain names which are available to register or indeed it has facilities to find available and established domains which will go a long way to boost your rankings. Yes it is true that you can go to Hostgator, GoDaddy or any other server but the beauty is Market Samurai enables you to do this all from one piece of software simultaneously.

 

5. Monetization: enables you to find products and services which you can promote via an affiliate program, which in turn will earn you money, I believe this is what we are all in the market for. Using this tab allows you to search products within ClickBank, Commission Junction, Amazon or Pay.DotCom.

Market Samurai even gives you access to create further opportunities to make money using blogs, banner ads or WordPress sidebar ads.

 

6. Find Content: this function sends Market Samurai out to research articles which are relevant to specific keywords, in other words it will search the web and select what it considers to be relevant content. It will locate news feeds, videos, blogs and much much more, which you can then use Market Samurai to further analyse for your niche.

 

7. Publish Content: this tab works with the Find Content function and together it will publish content direct to the web, and your own blog/WordPress site and others. You also have the facility of editing if you wish, alternatively just direct posting.

 

8. Promotion: simply put this function will go and find high quality backlinks opportunities for your niche and other sites which are considered authorities for your selected keyword.

 

9. Adwords: this function is not yet live, but we are advised that is coming soon. Once up and running it will use pay per click advertising strategies to attract visitors to your niche.

 

The above review is just a very brief summary of the potential power of Market Samurai when carrying out your keyword analysis. There are lots more functions and features which I would advise you to explore at your leisure. As I said previously we have been using this software for a number of months and we are amazed that when we speak to other Internet Marketeers a large number have never heard of it, now is your opportunity to grasp it with both hands.

 

Everything I have been taught since focusing on Internet Marketing as a form of creating wealth and giving up the day job, the most important piece of advice that I have been given is “ take action”.

Earn cash make money online, Review of Paul Evans Course Nicheology.com

Review of Paul Evans Course Nicheology.com

This is my review of the 14 day course by Paul Evans called Nicheology.com. I am doing this on a $1 trial basis for 14 days, although at time of writing is available. Membership costs $97 per month if the trial is available and that is the cost at the end of the trial.

I have brought and experienced many Internet marketing courses (although I have not tried all the ones I have brought!) And I am writing this on a day by day basis and therefore will be updating this daily and will write a conclusion when I finished.

I purchased the course for several reasons. The first of is that I like the way Paul runs his business and the charitable work he

is involved in and promotes in Africa. As will probably already know we have a strong with tendency to buy from people that we like. And Paul seems a very nice person.

My initial impression of the site is that very well presented and there are a lot of tools and resources on their. Paul encourages you to have a look around the site and explore and he explains that this is not to overload or overwhelm you but just so that you have an idea of what is on site and where to find things. I think it is good that Paul emphasised that it is not to overwhelm you otherwise it could well do so. Paul encourages you then get on to the training is not in the obvious to find.

In the introduction video Paul tells you that you can complete the whole process in 3 to 4 hours then you are familiar with the system. That means that you can enter a new niche, but website, put all your PLR product and start something.

What I liked about the course to start with is that you get all 14 days of training up front so you can go as quickly as you like. My intention is to complete the course in half that time so that I can prove worth of the course before the $97 is due, and therefore cancel if necessary.

Also in the introduction video Paul goes through and supplies a time measuring software to focused in your 30 minutes a day, which I think is a fantastic idea. The software appears to be aimed at Mac users as PC users have some setting up to do before they

can use it.

Day 1.

The days tuition starts with a 6 minute video that adequately explains what you do and it involves picking one of the PLR products on the website, selecting and buying a domain name, creating  the add-on domain within C-panel and pointing the name servers to your hosting account. At this point I realise that this is certainly a course for beginners or Newbies. Whilst Paul explains how to buy a domain from GoDaddy he assumes that you already have a web hosting, C-panel account and all those nothing to explain the importance of keyword selection and would leave you confused as to how to select the appropriate domain name. At this point I would expect any beginner to be completely overwhelmed give up. And even passed on experienced Internet marketeer 30 minutes is tight if you are going to do your keyword research thoroughly, which in itself could take 30 minutes.

Get a beginner Internet marketing was to carry out the steps including the all oughtn’t keyword research, then anticipate that they want to take 3 to 4 hours.

However I am not a newbie or beginner and love a challenge. I have not learned anything from today but I am excited at the prospect of condensing so much into the first day that following 13 days an awful lot of ground is going to be covered and I should therefore learn a huge amount and forward my Internet marketing career accordingly. I am a little intimidated that when I get my limit of experience, then the days “30 minutes of work” may be daunting but as I said at the beginning of this paragraph, I love a challenge.

Day 2

Well today was very easy and should take anyone less than 30mins quite easily. It’s all about personalising the PDF book.  At this point I held in mind that Paul in the intro video just to get on with the basics and not to do much faffing! So that’s exactly what I did.

As it was so quick, I took a quick look at day 3 and oh my goodness! The first video is 23mins long and there is a second. It requires the set up of a auto responder, editing and putting up a squeeze page etc. Paul intro in the video says we had it easy day 1 and 2 and now the works begin.

Well I’m still up for the challenge but I am going to allocate 2 or 3 hours!

“Wealth from the get rich quick schemes disappears: Wealth from hard work grows over time”. Proverbs 13:11

Day 3

Phew! Thankfully day 3 was not as bad as I feared. Whilst I thought the 23 minute video the new subjects to was fearing the worse. However I went one step at a time and kept stopping the video, switching screens and carrying out the task. Overall I guess it took me about one and a half hours.

Paul recommends using Komposer a free website editor and gives you a link to it enable you to edit the squeeze page template that he provides. In the second six minute video shows you how to make a presentable looking squeeze page from scratch without using his template. As I am personally on the with Front Page I use this to edit the page rather than starting a program. I realise most people reading this will think that Front Page is a pain in the Butt, but as I already familiar with it I find it easy to use.

Paul’s video then shows you how to set up and use Aweber auto responder. This is something that I have avoided doing for some time, probably to the detriment, but swallowed whole and followed Paul’s instructions. I signed on for an accepted the $1 month trial and I was amazed how easy it was to set up and use and was very pleased with myself that I have finally taken the plunge. Well done Mr Evans.

The videos show you how to upload everything using filezilla, which I note a lot of people recommend. I personally have installed and am familiar CoreFTP so I used that instead.

I am very pleased with what I have learnt and achieved in today’s session. If I was a complete beginner and was not familiar with web page editing software and FTP upload software then I guess would have taken me three or four hours to complete tasks

Not a chance look at tomorrow’s video very much looking forward it

click me

Day 4

Today’s video is just short of 12 minutes long and goes through finding products to promote on Clickbank and then shortening the URLs look better and stopping people in the know stealing your affiliate sales!

I already had a bank account and so I was familiar with my way round however I have not previously used the advanced search and that was useful to learn. Unfortunately the product I have chosen has very little complimentary products on bank and so searching took quite some time. In the end I managed to find a few products and I also looked at Amazon and got a couple of products from there.

I have not previously used a URL shortening/customising system and it was useful to find out about it and reasonably easy to use. As well as shortening BudURL does some tracking. I have installed on our server Tracking 202 which does a similar thing, although URL are not as neat, but does great tracking. But for this trial I am going with BudURL.

Because of the difficulty of finding products today’s lesson probably took me about an hour and if someone didn’t have a bank account and wanted to spend time learning it could take longer depending on how easy it was to find appropriate products. On watching Paul go through on the niche that he is using as an example then I will select a more popular category on Clickbank as there would appear to be greater potential than the niche/PLR product I have selected.

Whilst it is tempting to go back and start again at this point I want to see the process through and make an informed decision at the end. I am mindful that in Paul sales pitch he says that all the PLR products/niche is on his side have been researched, hence their inclusion. I have picked a niche that is of interest to me and therefore it would be great if I can make it work.

Day 5

On the face of it today’s task fairly straight. It is a short video of about 11 mins but it is still longer than it needs to be! Paul lets you watch while he writes and corrects and corrects 2 of the letters in the auto responder series. Whilst he is trying hard to impart the Psychology of selling (which he does quite well in the extension to the video) we do not need to see him typing and then correcting it. Towards the ends Paul says you do not need to see me type all 5, and I thought thank goodness for that!

So today’s task is to write 5 emails in the responder series. Not as easy as it sounds and it took quite some time. I would guess about 1.5 hours and I guess I could have done it better and should have spent 3 hours over it. Paul’s claim that if you are up to speed with the system you can do it all in 3 to 4 hours is looking unlikely.

If you want to know more about the Psychology of selling then you MUST read “Influence The Power of Persuasion” as I said it’s a must! It will explain how you can get people to buy your stuff, which of course you need to know and some of the techniques and experiments conducted and the results will blow your mind. It will also explain why you buy so much you don’t need, how to recognise the tactics and what to do about them. Go buy now, if you want to be successful its needs to be studied read yearly so that you know it inside out.

Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion (Collins Business Essentials)

Days 6 & 7

There is a short video for days 6 and 7 which cover the editing of the PLR book and then producing a PDF from the finished product. As well as the short video for today there was a link to a whole section of additional videos giving you advice on how you can create a much better product. (10 videos in total which includes adding audio, video squeeze page except) I looked at some of the videos but did not have time to watch them all.(For some reason the videos did not open and run in my Google chrome browser so I tried Opera that seem to load up some Camtasia files and everything worked well)

By way of explanation and going to tell you that in the shower this morning I was having doubts about the PLR product that I have chosen and I was thinking of starting the whole process again. However after much deliberation I decided that it was better to continue to the end with the product I have selected and that market so that I learned the process.

Underneath the video as well as a link to the additional videos there is a link to make online PDF Creator in case you don’t have one. I personally use cutePDF on my computer and Nitro PDF on my work is. CutePDF is a free software which is great for private use and will suit most people although it is very limited. Nitro PDF which is a paid for program has many advanced features such as password protection, optimisation, being able to edit PDF’s, conversion to Word documents etc

So for me day 6 and 7 has been very quick, which was just what I wanted so that I can get on track with completing the 14 day before my 14 day one dollar trial expires!

Day 8

In Paul’s video he explains that today is a short lesson and you can possibly combine it with day 9 and that they are indeed complementary. And indeed it did not take long to carry out the task that Paul has set for today. However I found out that I had made an error in an earlier days training where Paul had tried to put in the URL of the offer page and it worked. At that point he did not stress the significance of that point and as he prefixed his instructions with a try and see if this works I did not realise the significance. Anyhow no biggie but it took me about 10 minutes to go back into Aweber and just identify where that URL was. A little frustrating but it will no doubt help me to learn my way around a Aweber so no bad thing.A small comment on the video is that it appears to stop a couple of times although the seconds tick away nothing happens more is said which just made me a little bit curious as to what was happening but in the end. As I have indicated earlier I am truly using this as an exercise now that I think I’m in the wrong niche so I did not spend much time editing just the bare minimum. The training is good at moving you forward.

PS. A note on Clickbank requirements of the pitch page is that a contact e-mail address should be provided. If you already have an approved Clickbank account then this is not an issue but if you are going through the approval process you will need to add this.

Day 9

Well I think I may have been having a thickness problems today all may be the video was not as clear as some of the others. The day is about getting your click bank link and a thank you page. I was first thwarted by the fact that I was working on my laptop from home which does not have Microsoft FrontPage all call FTP on. I did think of downloading Kompositor and trying that got noticed that it was based on NVU, which I have used previously and did not like. So I installed FrontPage and core FTP, set up core FTP for the two hosting companies are used, which again was not straightforward as I got one of the IP addresses wrong! Anyway after about an hour and was good to go.

The video assumes that you already have a product approved in click bank, although Paul does explain that there are instructions on click bank site telling you how to get your first product approved and there are also some videos that follow this one to help and he uses the option of an additional course from him for another $49.95. This is in no way pushy.

The problem is that to get your first product approved by click bank you need download page and that is Day 10. Paul does mention this but not very helpfully. I would have thought it preferable to show you how to do a download page and then you can go straight into click bank and request approval. So I practice about with this under my own steam and made something that hopefully meets ClickBanks requirements although I can always edit it tomorrow in that lesson. I have previously tried to get a product approved in click bank and failed. So effectively I am starting with my first product which you need to get approved by click bank before you can proceed with selling the item. So I went through all the processes including doing the test etc but then after submitting you get a message saying that it takes 3 to 5 days for approval and of course this takes us right to the end of the course.

So not my best day and I think not Paul’s best video. My day was not helped by the fact that my download page was a PDF which for some reason Safari could not find it so I get renaming and pratting about to trying it to work, only to find that it worked great in Windows Explorer and Google chrome so there appeared to be some issue with Adobe/Safari and not my work! (See additional videos to assist in registering your first product for approval with click bank is based on another product and using a different editing software etc which then becomes a little confusing)

Still no sign of where the traffic is going to come from!

Day 10

By the way day 9 probably took me about an hour and a half to complete. Day 10, 20 minute video today which includes making a thank you page and a download page and setting up Aweber for the customer list. Quite straightforward today or so I thought, I had already done a thank you page which needed some alteration and their download page but what much work. Aweber again was refreshing easy to use.

I have one problem after I had created the form in Aweber, I copied the JavaScript into Microsoft FrontPage and all they gave me was the script previous and not the form. I copied it several times, or below did it and tried that in each type at the same. I then decided that maybe I had previously copied the full HTML script so I tried that and again looked at it in my browser as well as FrontPage but all I saw was the script and not the form. Frustrating to say the least!

I then had a lightbulb moment and wondered if Safari was bringing in additional would and so I copied the JavaScript into notepad and then into FrontPage and low and behold it worked first time. This is the second day that using Safari has caused me a certain amount of grief. I like the look and feel of Safari (I’m a PC user) but maybe it is not suitable for Internet marketing type stuff.

So today should have taken me about an hour, although I guess because the problem with Safari was properly nearer two hours. But the video was clear and easy to follow. I have had to alter the pages that for click bank to approve, and I think my original setup i.e. without an opt in step, may have been more except the ball to click bank as it was easier to get the download. We will have to wait and see what click bank think of it.

Day 11.
Interesting and easy day today. Paul goes on to develop the download page to use it as an up and sell and then send you on to another download paid to actually download. He also shows you how to take the auto responder series you have developed for prospects and use that for customers.
I am reluctant to alter my download page from an actual download page until such time as I have approval from ClickBank. This may be not necessary but having previously had a product knocked back on Clickbank I do not want to take any risks at this point.
With regard to developing the auto responder list for customers, as I am now having second thoughts on this niche I will leave doing anything with this until such time as I have a customer although it is a great tactic to use in my next niche.
One point of note is that Paul uses a testimonial from the affiliate site and incorporate it in his own. As I am sure you are aware there are rules set out by the FTC in using testimonials which website owners would need to be aware of before copying Paul’s actions blindly.

Day 12.
Interesting day. I have received an e-mail from ClickBank advising that in order for my product to be approved I need to add an e-mail address on the “pitch page”. I am a look back to Day eight when this was covered and Paul makes no mention of this and indeed he does not include an e-mail address on his sales page. This works in Paul’s example as he is already approved by click bank but it will not work for anyone else. I will add a note to day 8 for anyone reading this and going through the process and needing to get approval for the first product.
A short video of today testing the whole process from going on the site in the first instance, through to signing up, getting sent to the sales page, buying, getting the product and the upsell and checking that everything was recorded correctly in Aweber. Seems easy enough!
One thought I had whilst watching the video and Paul appears to avoid answering is what it can’t details do you enter as obviously you don’t want to be paying for the privilege of testing. As it happened, because my product is not yet approved by a web I have to use a test credit card anyway. (It may be that you can use a test we can’t when you have an approved Aweber account as well but I have not and therefore cannot be sure.
I had also forgotten how to get the test credit card details and for anyone reading who has also forgotten, you log into your bank account, go to account settings, my site and scroll down to the bottom where there is a message that for a test credit card click on the edit button and then following the instructions.
I tried this using a different e-mail address to my testing when setting up the account and everything went swimmingly until I entered my e-mail address into the download page when Aweber sent me an error message saying I was already a member. A little bit of investigation revealed that on the download page I had imported the e-mail account that I originally used to testing and not the one I’d started this process with. So operator error!
It’s frustrating for somebody knew that the process not to have been advised to include the e-mail address on the pitch page and not to have explained how you test the process without inserting your own credit although that could be me as being a bit thick.

Day 13
I forgot to mention yesterday, that for anyone getting approval for the first time with ClickBank there is a one-off charge of $49.95 that they refer to as a activation charge. Just something to be aware of.
In today’s video Paul goes through ways of promoting your site to get back links and ranking. As Paul explains this course and his site is not focused on this topic but has covered it briefly to give you an overview and pointed you in the direction of somebody else’s course if you wanted to go down the Google ad words route.
For the nine minutes but Paul spends explaining this he does a fairly good job and I found the references to go articles.com and social marker.com particularly useful.
The video shows its age slightly in that you are now able to search Google for blogs etc by clicking in the left-hand column rather than having to type the word blog or forum etc into the search box.
Only one day left.

Day 14.
A short video today with no actual work involved. Paul tells you….. well actually I’ll leave you to see the video. So I have got to the end of the programme and tomorrow I will write my on the course I am where I am going from here.

My Conclusion.
The 14 days training is well thought out and goes through most things very well with only a couple of minor errors. There are however in my mind 2 omissions. The 1st is that the importance of keyword research is not discussed and therefore what domain name to go for and the 2nd, which is a related omission, is that getting traffic to the site by organic means and SEO is covered only very superficially.

Paul makes assumptions about the knowledge of the participate but does not set out at the beginning what skills you need before starting. And that would improve the user experience.

  • Can it be done in 30mins per day for 14 days, I think that is tight for all but the experienced, and they would not need the course.
  • Do you have a ready to go website and system at the end ready to make money that you can then rinse and repeat. Yes, but you then need to know how to get some traffic.
  • Is it suitable for newbie’s? No

It is a good course for someone with a reasonable amount of knowledge the following and it would be an improvement if Paul set these out as prerequisites, then the 14 days is a reality;
•    Knowledge of keyword research,
•    has Hosting account,
•    has brought domains,
•    familiar with Komposer or similar HTML editing program and a FTP program.
•    knows how to get traffic to the site,
•    knows his/her way around Clickbank would be an advantage although not essential.

    The course for me has pulled together a logical sequence of using PLR or something similar and using a auto responder. I enjoyed it and got a lot out of it.

    Am I going to continue my membership. No sorry Paul not now. Now I better know the system, I will try another Niche, drive some traffic and see what money flows in. When the money is flowing I will come back and join as there are vast resources on the site I would like to try but did not have the time, and I am a member of a couple of other premium sites and cannot get round their material either.

        So thanks for the course Paul. I will be back, hopefully soon as soon as the system proves itself financially!

        The Hard work of Making Money on the Internet

        Internet marketeers, do you want a barrel on local market or a high-street superstores?
        This is a question for all people who are starting or trying to start their careers as Internet marketeers whether that be by blogging, websites, affiliate promotions, Google ads, Facebook, twitter etc. Using the example from the off-line world as you are starting out what you want to do you want to start with a barrel on the local market or markets stall or do you want a high street superstore with all the staff etc and great shop front and repetition?

        There is a great temptation in Internet marketing to keep buying the latest and “greatest” Internet marketing course, e-book, system etc. We’ve all been there, we’ve all got tempted, and if the marketeer is any good you have our wallets twitching and our credit cards quivering! But the truth of the matter is that sufficient information is available for free or very low cost on starting Internet marketing which is sufficient to get you going providing you’re prepared to put the work in.

        It’s very tempting to think that the next system is better than the last and that you are going to make money overnight with little effort and little learning. The truth of the matter as I’m sure you have been told before and you already know is it’s just not wouldn’t happen when an Internet business or any other. People who have achieved success of all done so through their hard work, failures (yes they’ve all had failures, take a look at Mike Filsaime story or Ed Dale’s if you think otherwise).

        Internet marketing is no different to traditional marketing, the clue there is in the name! And therefore we can look to traditional businesses to learn from and use their models forum education and business. If we look at Marks & Spencer’s I started as a penny stall on the local market and through hard work and steady reinvestment grew their business to what it is today. The second example that I can think of as they’ve recently gone out of business is Woolworths again they started on the market only this time it was a 6d (that’s all pense for young uns!).

        So for your Internet marketing business don’t look towards all the successful high-profile Internet marketeers and tried to emulate their business and success straightaway, but start at the very beginning starts with simple blogs or simple websites and work gradually to make your first dollar online and then ramp business up from their as you find out for yourself what works and what doesn’t, start with the “Barrow” all the handcart and gradually work yourself up to the main street. Get one of the free Internet marketing courses (and by the way the ink to let marketing gurus teach that you should give away your best information so don’t undervalue the free information that is out there) or a low-cost blogging course under $50 and follow every step and work it through to you start making $1.

        Money Making Blogs

        Almost every day I receive e-mails offering the latest new way to make money on the Internet. I note that there is a recent trend towards using Word press blogs and monetising them as a way of making your next million!
        As you will have no doubt have bought several packages and e-book’s already you will know that most of them do not live up to the sales pitch and that they are all a variation on the same theme just rewritten and repackaged, and that the cost of these can vary tremendously.
        Making money with WordPress blogs is appealing as the initial costs, i.e. your financial investment, can be very small and that you are largely risking your time rather than any money. Courses on making money from blogging tend to be at the cheaper end of the market and this particular e-book is similarly low-priced that $37.
        This e-book produced by Rob Benwell is 67 pages long and goes about making money out of blogging in a different way to that I have seen taught previously with the setting up of short term blogs and long-term blogs in each niche. There is a lot of work involved in applying the system to its full extent and it is not going to make anybody rich overnight, however I can see the logic that his method builds a firm foundation for making a solid business that will generate an income. I am going to try applying his system as it seems to be a logical way of building a genuine business that it can give you an income and one that you can be proud to be associated with. But as I said it is now make money quick scheme it requires hard work.
        Is this money making guide suitable for beginners/Newbies? The answer to that is a resounding yes. Rob starts off going through in sufficient detail how to setup your WordPress blog how to pick a domain and a web host how to select your keyword phrase etc. Whilst this might not be the most comprehensive Newbie guide, it is certainly detailed enough with loads of links to resources and everything that you need to get going.
        Is this e-book suitable for experienced bloggers? Well they have done a fair bit of blogging and have certainly studied Internet marketing in general in a fair amount of detail and if for nothing else than some of the resources and links that amazingly I have not come across before than the cause would be well worth the price. The only negative point I would make is that since signing up I get inundated with sales e-mails from Rob with affiliate offers, which is a little disappointing (take note if you are reading this Rob)
        Of course when you sign up for Blogging to the Bank 2010 Edition you would be disappointed if there was not a one-time offer! And you will be what Rob Benwell offers is a monthly video course for $29 (I think I need to check that) that goes into great detail the subjects covered in the e-book. I will prepare and publish a separate review of these videos which are called The Six Figure Blogging Club.

        UK Domain Hosting

        If you have based in the UK or your primary target market is the UK then to assist in getting the best rankings possible you will want a .CO.UK domain name hosted on a UK server. Obviously you will want to do this as economically as possible if your aim is to make money on the Internet.

        So if you are looking for web hosting comparison then you will find loads of providers for hosting a single site or blog and very economically, however if you are intending to have multiple websites on a UK domain hosting and only pay one monthly fee your options are limited. Further if you try and find web hosting comparisons including ones you are considering you will find both positive and negative reviews.

        I was in this situation and I came across D9 hosting which provide a very similar service to that provided by Host Gator but on UK Servers (they can also provide you with US hosting although I have not tried this).

        This means you can host an unlimited number of domains, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited storage, and unlimited e-mail addresses. Which is exactly what I was wanting all on a UK host.

        Furthermore the couple that own and run the site do the management themselves so that when you make a technical enquiry (as I did when I started using their service but have not needed to do since) then you get UK people to talk to and they were extremely helpful and over provided in their assistance.

        So if you are after web hosting with unlimited bandwidth and the cheapest web hosting all on a UK host then I can thoroughly recommend the nine hosting as the link below and the cost is from only £5.95 per month which must represent the cheapest web hosting with unlimited bandwidth on a UK host and thoroughly reliable service.

        Review positive thinking books Daydreaming by Simon Clarkson

        Click here to buy Daydreaming

        I recently discovered that there are several positive thinking books available on the market, I have discovered one that interested me, Simon Clarkson has published ’DayDreaming’. This is a book aimed at the individual who is looking for success through a positive mental attitude and wants to take control of their lives.

        It is a book that emphasises the power of positive thinking not dissimilar to The Secret in principle, but written by an Englishman in simple terms.

        The book explains how Simon applies the power of positive thinking in all of his thoughts, actions to his everyday life. What Simon explains to his reader is that if something is important to us sufficiently so and we desire it, it can and will happen.

        The world that we live in today is full of people who are negative and don’t believe that they are either good enough or deserve it, whatever it is. What Simon writes is that the world is indeed there for is all to tap into, the important thing being, we need to develop our positive thinking techniques to concentrate on these issues.

        Simon goes into detail of his own personal experiences in life, these are quite touching but, the important issue being it is the power of the human being. We all possess these powers but very few people apply them and this is a huge issue we all appear to have.

        A great memory that I recall, is one that’s when I was a young boy and I would balance on a high wall, my mother would invariably shout” be careful otherwise you may fall”. And guess what invariably I’d fall. The point being once you have been told something your brain will think that it will happen and more often than not it does.

        Apply the same thoughts to positive thinking techniques within our lives and you can transform your life. How simple can it all be, surely if we changed our thoughts,  wouldn’t life be a lot better for all mankind.

        In conclusion what Simon Clarkson’s book does, is to encourage us all to think positive, healthy good thoughts and you never know when you actually tune in, it will happen. If you were to carry out very simple research it would prove that most successful, prosperous individuals all have one thing in common: the same trait.

        Dream it, feel it, touch it, smell it, even imagine playing a video in your mind and all these dreams will come true.

        Dropbox download

        Dropbox for sharing working documents.
        Hi, not sure how many people are using dropbox at the moment or are familiar with what it can do, although I have noticed a few articles on ezine etc.
        Basically Dropbox is a free online storage system or storage in “cloud” all about competing as some people refer to it. It works great as a free personal backup between with between 2 and 8 gigabytes of free storage (if you require more there is a paid upgrade). The reason the size of the free space varies, is that if you invite others to join up only use your link then you get an extra 250mb of storage space.
        I started using it as a personal storage so I could access the files I was working on in the office when I was working at home (or indeed there is a iPhone at so you can access from the phone), but I have now gone beyond that and started using the sharing facilities. Basically you create a file for a project or company, then send invites to dropbox users who you want to have access to the files and when they accept you all have access to the same files to any members of the team can access files ,use save, them alter or update them and everyone has access to the latest edition. It works especially well for files that are too big to e-mail and where members of the team want the latest information. I used a similar system a couple of years ago when working for a large contractor and thought it was good then but that was a private server that they had set up and was beyond the reach of the rest of is mere mortals!
        With dropbox this is now available to all. I am currently working on some insurance related projects and when I receive instructions, calculations, photographs, scope of works etc I can upload them into the relevant dropbox folder and near enough instantly all the members of the team (while all three of us) have access. You can of course have different folders for each project and assign access to different people as appropriate. When the project is completed you can then take out of your dropbox, if you need the space, and save on your hard drive.
        Hope you find that useful. If you did and you would like to dropbox account it would be appreciated if you clicked here so that I can increase my space.

        Review: Effective Time Management Skills for Everyone

        Review of Martin Avis’ book “Effective Time Management Skills for Everyone”

        I am writing this like a diary as early complete the 14 days that Martin claims will change my life. That’s a very big claim and by the end of this diary we will see if the book has lived up to the claim.
        Initial impression on receiving the book is that it is a smaller than I anticipated for the cover price, however the book is well produced with a pleasant, and easily laid out inside.

        Introduction and Day 1
        . I know from the previous writings of Martin that his work is a very easy read in that the text flows and he covers things at a level that anyone can understand. I have picked one of the ideas for the first day and I will put into practice that idea for the next 14 days.

        Day 2. I have unsuccessfully are put into place the practice that I selected from day one of this is mainly down to me being a bit finicky and trying to select the ideal tool for me. I have now found that all after trying several and hopefully I can now put this into use.
        The principal explained on day two is one that I am familiar with and indeed have read a whole book on. Martin’s down-to-earth explanation and practical applications with regard to time management is very good. As it happens I am already applying which neatly ties in in a slightly different format so I will continue with that application and refine it along the guidelines in the book.

        Day 3. Of the tips filled today I am finding it hard to decide which one I should try and implement. One of the reasons for this is that I am resistant to change unless I can immediately see the benefit. I appreciate that to properly benefit from the book I need to apply a principle each day irrespective of what I consider the outcome will be. So with this in mind I select one of the tips which neatly ties in with the tip I am using from day one.

        Classic Tip. Between day three and Day for their is a classic Tip, this is indeed a classic Tip and one that I have used and taught to other I was employed as a manager. Whilst the explanation and summary of the tip was good I did think that the application, at least in my case, could have been slightly better executed.

        Day 4. Any mixture of tips today all of which seem useful. I have selected one which I have, in part, endeavoured to use before and not succeeded. Martin explains in the book that this can be a very powerful strategy and I have perhaps overlooked how powerful it can be. It will certainly assist in my day-to-day working routine. I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that after I have completed the 14 days and applied whatever strategies I choose and with whatever success level I achieve, it is going to be beneficial for me to return and reread and apply different strategies in a few months time.

        Day 5.
        The first two tips in today’s chapter or before Friday’s obviously this assumes that you started reading the book and applying the advice on Monday, which is a fair assumption. As it happens I have recently started applying very similar strategy (albeit on a Saturday) and therefore I could not use the first two tips although they are great tips. The third tip ties in with and build on the strategy I took from day 1 so this is one that I have plumped for and will try and apply. The final tip for today is also a great tip on that I will come back to some time after the first 14 days.

        Day 6. As I am reading the book I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that I need to write down what I have agreed to implement each day and I’m losing track of where I want to! Another for tips today the first one which I’m not sure about the advice given, it certainly isn’t for me.
        The second tip is one that I’ve looked at before and to be quite honest it frightened the living daylights out of me doing the exercise that Martin suggests and that’s because I know it’ll show how much time I waste.
        I feel that this tip is a whole time management exercise in its own right and not one that I would try to implement in this 14 day program with other steps as it would just be too much, but I will come back to it.
        The third tip is the one for me today it will be very hard to implement but I suspect it’s one that certainly wastes a lot of my energy in particular emotional energy and therefore I need to do something about it.
        Last tip I suppose I didn’t really understand what having selected the third and it’s not relevant to me.
        Top Tip. There is a top tip between day six and seven and whilst the story is interesting and good to reflect on it and not actually a step you can apply in the same way as other tips.

        Day 7. Coming up to the halfway mark and has said yesterday beginning to forget some things I agreed to apply each day, I should have written down to give myself better chance. Some good practical tips in today and I’m sure that all people who suffer from a time pressure will recognise that some of their culprits. I guess I did not take on any one tip to book the general strategy of a couple of tips I am embracing.

        Top Tip.
        Great quote from Henry Ford as the top Tip and whilst it was clearly written a long time ago it’s amazingly relevant.

        Day 8. On a daily basis it is getting difficult to remember which strategies I am applying as in theory and in our buying a new strategies! From the tips for today several useful bits of advice the third one being warned that will actually help you apply the time management strategies you want to take forward from this minicourse. I therefore wonder whether this should perhaps have gone out the beginning, perhaps as a introduction. It also is a helpful way to apply the methods in this book and is the methodology employed by Steven Covey in his book follow-up book to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People the The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness: Miniature Edition .

        Top Tip. This top Tip is a very useful one to getting lots done in life and one that we should all take on board.

        Day 9. As an overall feeling that there was a lot more completed ticks on last week’s goals and is normally the case, that would suggest that even applying some of the strategies is making a difference.
        Three tips to the first one of which is very interesting and not one that I have come across before and it’s one that I will try and implement as my “put off this” quite often get out a hand.

        Day 10. Some more useful suggestions although there is nothing in the suggestions that I am going to apply this time round. This is not a reflection on the suggestions just that I was going to keep on top of the ones I’m already trying to do!

        Day 11
        . The first tip is a great tip on well I do have trouble trying to stick with that. The third tip is one that I’ve seen several times and nicely built on top of the other tips are trying to most of.

        Day 12. Interesting suggestions for reducing the amount of lost Time goes into meetings although her personally it’s not an issue for me but it was thought to be looking at some of the useful suggestions the other tips on not something that I can see myself immediately applying. At this point I’m thinking that I should have made a note on the days when there was to tips which seemed appropriate for a second it was then I could be applying it today can make the most of 14 days. When I return and go through the list is the second time I will do this.

        Day 13. Today’s tips revolve around motivation and deadlines, and I found them very helpful whilst I am not quite organised enough to implement some of them as far as Martin goes I will certainly implement the overall idea and see what happens.

        Top Tip. Top it which is about distractions and not the best tip and I have come across for dealing with the distractions themselves how to accommodate same within your working routine/deadlines.

        Day 14
        Final Day. Quite pleased that it is the final day as there is rather a lot to take on board and apply on a daily basis the second tip for today should be my opinion have been included either in Day one or at least in the introduction as it is about how to practically apply the strategies and tips covered in the book although maybe Martin’s idea was that you would come back and read the book a second time and be able to apply more time management techniques as a result of that. The same applies to the third tip of the day.

        I hope my day-to-day thoughts are on some interest as you work your way through the effective time management book. As I stated in the conclusion if you are of a mind to apply and build on the time management strategies, tips, techniques that that put forward in this book and indeed you will improve your management of time i.e. improve your productivity which will then result in whatever outcome you would like as a result of being able to get more done be that spending more time with the family being able to work on generating more income etc
