You Know More Than You Think

A great post over at SEO Book was titled You Aren’t Average and included this video below. Scott from Google was in Times Square in New York and asked over 50 passersby of different ages and backgrounds “What is a browser?” Watch the many responses people came up with:

There are many lessons for us to learn from this, about ourselves, and our readers and customers. Read the post You Aren’t Average for insights, and comment below.

WordPress.tv Videos Will Help You!

Ever wanted to know how to do something basic in WordPress? Now WordPress.tv can help you out.

Made by the makers of WordPress (Automattic), WordPress.tv contains videos on writing and publishing posts, adding a static page, and many more “how-to” videos.

Below is their welcome video (if you can’t see it, click here):

Looks like a great resource for those who aren’t too sure how to do something in WordPress. As always if you would like to TALK to someone about how to use WordPress, or you’re uncomfortable with the interface, please get in touch.

More Free Videos

One thing I like about internet product launches is the quality of the free information you can receive. With the launches becoming more advanced and competitive, the “free-line” is moving constantly with higher quality information being released. Become A Blogger Premium is no different with some “X-factor” videos being released.

Take a look at their new video below, it is an elaboration of one of the X-Factor strategies inside Yaro and Gideon’s report – The Roadmap To Become A Blogger, which has already been downloaded 8,789 times in the last week!

It looks at a little-known feature of the social media giant Facebook, and shows you how to use it to your advantage and uncover multiple exploitable niche areas. You don’t need to enter your details or anything to watch it, simply take a look.

As usual, I’m an affiliate of Yaro and Gideon, so I make some money if you sign up for their course. However I do not offer anything to sweeten the deal – an incentive (or bribe!) – like lots of other internet marketers do. Sure it increases sales but I would rather you thought this course would be useful to you and help you in your blogging (and financial) goals, rather than because someone was offering a bonus and it only might be of interest. Please note the price of the course goes up from $27/month to $47/month and removal of fast action bonuses on December 11th.

Blog Mastermind Re-Opens Its Doors

As I previously mentioned it was coming you should have expected it, but today Blog Mastermind re-opens it’s doors.

In addition to the previous excellent 32 minute Conversion Blogging video that takes you inside his Internet business, Yaro Starak has just released two further videos called How I Make Money Blogging (22 minutes) and Show Me The Money (17 minutes).

Even if you’re not planning on joining, the two Conversion Blogging and How To Make Money Blogging free videos are really worth watching to give you insight into how a blog can become a major source of income for you. There is very little that Yaro doesn’t share with you about his journey and how he makes money online, so from just watching these videos you can learn a lot about what might work best for you. The Show Me The Money video is just proof of how Yaro earns his money, so if you need convincing, take a look.

Conversion Blogging

As most of you know, I am a graduate of Blog Mastermind myself, and that is why I have faith in it and why I promote it. It is the only blogging course I promote, so please let me know any questions you have about it and I would be happy to try to answer them for you.

Great New Video Tool

For those looking to add a little spice to some photos on their blog, there’s a great new video tool called Animoto. The website allows you to upload photos (or import from Facebook, SmugMug, Picasa or Flickr), say from your latest company conference, add music from a pre-selected list or import your own mp3. It then goes away and creates a unique video based on the photos and music. See below for an example:

You can create unlimited 30 second videos for free (Animoto Shorts), or extended length (and downloadable) ones for $3 each or $30 for a year (or $25 with this code: tlobsvqg), and I almost guarantee you’ll sign up for one of the options when you see the results! Short video creation can take about 10 minutes, and if you’re not happy with the results you can just press Remix, and as no two videos are the same you’ll get something else. Give it a try for free.

If you’re interested in video, as a free gift to all my newsletter subscribers, you can now get the Ultimate Guide to Online Video for free! A 45 page report looking at 61 different video sharing and video editing sites, this is yours if you sign up to my newsletter.

Whilst some of the technical parts are explained in the videos, one of the main points Yaro mentions is to outsource the technical aspect of blogging if that is not your strong point. Ahem, let me know if this is you 🙂 . In fact he says:

“In the long run it’s definitely a smarter tactic, something I wish I did myself from day one, but instead I decided to struggle with technology myself and thus slow my progress down considerably.”
