- Once you have figure out the keywords you decide which of the top search engines you would want to use these search commands for prospects.
- Than go to those search engines type in allinurl:"your keyword"
(obviously replace "your keyword" with your specific keywords that you're targeting)

The business and Internet marketing worlds are typically fast-paced cutthroat worlds wherein everyone looks out for himself, and day-to-day actions are done with seemingly no care for anyone else. Oftentimes, everyone is out to get as large a piece of the market as they can manage, regardless of the consequences to any other contender in the business world. Such is the harsh nature of Internet marketing, and it is a scenario that we have come to expect as par for the course. It may seem a bit strange then that anyone would suggest the merits of adopting a win-win approach to business and Internet marketing which is what we are doing here.
What you have to realize first of all is that win-win does not necessarily involve “playing nice” for its own sake, nor is it meant to solve any business or Internet marketing related concerns instantly. Instead, it is a long-term character blueprint for determining how you interact and collaborate with other people.
The win-win approach is not really all that outlandish when you think about it. After all, all businesses rely on a certain degree of interaction and cooperation with everyone involved. “No man is an island” as the well-worn saying goes, and this applies to business and Internet marketing just as much as it does to many other aspects of life.
Nevertheless, many of us have been conditioned to see business as a cutthroat competition, where success often comes as at the cost of someone else’s failure. What the win-win mentality involves however is the realization that this “all or nothing” approach does not have to be the only way to conduct a business. Instead, it relies on cooperation between all participants in a way that results in the good of everyone concerned. Just as the name implies, everyone in a win-win scenario gets to have a piece of the pie.
The win-win approach to conducting business requires a few qualities from the people involved, most notably: integrity, maturity, and a belief in abundance. Integrity involves staying true to the values and commitments that you have set for yourself. Maturity is the ability to express ideas with courage and at the same time with consideration for the other people involved. As for abundance, it is the belief that there are more than enough rewards for everyone to partake in.
When you apply the win-win approach to Internet marketing, you basically discard the notion that you either have to be cold hearted and brutal to succeed, and that being the nice guy means that you will end up last. The win-win mentality instead relies you to play both roles, but always with the other person in mind. It actually involves a constant balancing act between being confident and courageous enough to do what is necessary to get the job done, but also being considerate of the goals and feelings of the other people in the business, whether they are your partners, your co-workers, your employees or your customers. When you manage to achieve this, everyone wins.

When paint a full picture of your family life, daily life, and even your business life within being thankful (instead of complaining or thinking the worst about the news) Very quickly you can find a positive just about anywhere and everywhere if you dig down deep enough within your true heart of thankfulness. you frame your daily life, your business and your family in ?thankfulness? - it is easier to remain positive and upbeat. Today I wanted to share with you some simple examples of how I turn potentially negative things into the positive.
(and YES - You should try to stay positive and thankful all the time!)
* I am thankful for my family!
* I am thankful for my house that the Lord has provided for my family!
* I am thankful for job and forgive me for when I complain and nag about it!
* I am thankful for background and experiences that have brought me to where I am today!
* I am thankful for technology and especially the internet!
* I am thankful for my friends and support that always surround me in the good and bad times!
* I am thankful for when people correct me, because this humbles me in my pride fullness!
* I am thankful for the people that are reading this...and may it only give you a spirit of thankfulness as well.
* I am thankful for the health that God has blessed my family with especially our little one.
* I am thankful for a side business that helps me give more money away to worthy causes for the sake of Jesus Christ and His Good News!!
* And most of all? I am thankful for the simple things in life that in a busy day I don't stop and think about that God sees fit to bless me with!
By thinking within the big picture of life though at times may feel unnatural but in return could make days of differences for ALL! Choose to be thankful not only this Thanksgiving for each and every day even for the simplest things. And just remember how truly blessed we all really are even in a crazy up and down world that we live in today!

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year or so, there is no way that you could have missed hearing about the Mcain/Obama fight for the presidency that has had the entire nation on the edge of their collective seats. Every the media positively bombards us with in depth coverage of the battle and the nation seemingly can’t get enough. It is a battle of epic proportions to be sure and the world waits with bated breath to see which of these fearsome gladiators will come out on top of the heap when the smoke and the rubble from the battle clears.
Over on cyberspace there is another war that is brewing just as hot and heavy and for the assorted web geeks and cyber denizens it is a battle that is probably even more hotly contested than the presidential race. What are we talking about here? Why, it is the battle for RSS supremacy fought between John Chow and Shoemoney of course! Each of these giants of the online world are formidable blogging titans in their own right and it is only inevitable that they would butt heads at one point or another. Make no mistake; while this is really a friendly rivalry more than anything, you can bet that each of these two contenders are dead serious about winning out over the other.
The competition involves seeing which of the two can get more readers to subscribe to their blog. Since each of these two blogs definitely have a healthy share of readers and their owners are certainly no slouches in the blogging business, you can bet that the results will be interesting to say the least. Shoemoney and Chow are not known for backing down from the challenge and they are prepared to pull out all the stops and take whatever steps are necessary in order to subject their rival to a humiliating defeat!
The two have actually been involved in various friendly competitions for a good number of years now, one of the most notable of which was the marketing challenge for who could get the most number of subscribers for the month of October of 2007. What was the price of that competition? The loser had to post a link on their own blog to their rival’s web site explaining why the winner was a better marketer! Oh, the shame! The humiliation! But alas, such is the fiercely competitive and bloody world of blogging and this new contest is certainly not going to be any less brutal! So if you want to see which of these blogging giants reigns supreme over all and which of them will slink away with his tail between his legs, forever forced to live out the rest of his days in abject shame and humiliation–until the next friendly competition that is!–keep watching this space! We warn you though; keep the smelling salts handy and get the children to bed…it’s going to be a battle of epic proportions!

You will notice that I have attached a real dollar bill at the top of this letter and that it has been sent to you by Priority mail. I realize that you are a large and busy company and that your time is very valuable, so I wanted to be able to grab your attention right away. And since I am offering you a way to greatly increase the money that you are currently making, I though the use of a dollar bill as an “attention-getter” is quite appropriate.
I am writing to inform you of my interest in applying for the copywriting position in your company. I realize that you are a large and successful company and that you are looking only for the very best candidates to fill that position. I am fully confident in my abilities to be of service to you, and since you are looking for a writer who is passionate about marketing and copywriting, I thought it appropriate for me to apply.
You mentioned in your ad that you are fast growing company and that you typically work demanding projects with rigid deadlines. I strongly believe that your company has an environment that I can thrive in, since I am interested in growing with a world-class company that can ensure my continued growth and professional development as a copywriter. Furthermore, I have been known to produce some of my best work under a tight deadline, and working under pressure is a scenario that I am very familiar and comfortable with. I am also particularly interested in the training in copywriting and marketing strategy that your company offers, as I see it as even more opportunities in my quest for continuous improvement.
Below you will find some testimonials from clients that I have worked for in the past, who all attest to my capabilities in this area of expertise.
I have been working with Eric for a little more than 3 years now, ever since I placed an ad for a highly qualified copywriter on the Internet to work on one of my SEO projects. Needless to say I was not disappointed, and Eric carried out the task with excellent results. He has consistently shown that he has the skills to not only write quality copy, but also to effectively use targeted keywords that served to make the content more attractive to the major search engines, as well as friendly to the reader. I have since worked with Eric in a wide variety of projects, and he has always carried out his responsibilities in a thoroughly professional manner. I am currently in the midst of developing a financing site for a major international client, and Eric is again the right fit for the job. I have no hesitations whatsoever about recommending him to someone who is in need of a thoroughly competent and highly professional copywriter.
Online Marketing Director @ ThinkBig Media
All of the articles that Eric submitted were well-written and passed comprehensive duplicate content checks with flying colors. He is very easy to deal with and handles all projects like a through professional would. My first order of articles was very well-received and were of outstanding quality. I am about to place a second order of 25 articles as the next step in a long-term business relationship with him.
I have already received a second batch of articles from Eric, and I am happy to say that they were just as good as the first batch! A true pro and a very skilled writer, Eric is a joy to work with! Highly recommended!
I trust that you will find my application and the accompanying testimonies meet with your approval, and I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience!

That's right you are not miss reading this. You can have a quick and simple chance of winning $200 for just being a commentator. Franklin Bishop is running a simple commentator contest and anyone can enter the chance to win $200.
The top commenter of each month will win $200 as long as you follow the guidelines below:
- Must be subscribed by e-mail or RSS. If you win then I can ask you for the e-mail address you used to subscribe by e-mail. If you only want to subscribe via RSS then just take a screenshot of my blog feed in whatever feed reader you are using. Then paste it into a image program and e-mail it to me. Either way it will work for me.
- You can only comment twice a day and they cannot be within the same hour. You can only comment once a hour (so obviously you can get counted for 24 comments a day because there are 24 hours in a day)I just don’t want people that suddenly come to my blog on the last day of the month to start commenting on every post that I have and be able to win.
- Your comment must be at least three sentences or more (There are a lot of people that have commented with less than three sentences. Remember those comments will not count. If you don’t care about winning then it doesn’t matter.). This will stop people from quickly commenting on each post just so they have the chance to win $200. It’s really not hard to write three sentences. It will train you to be a better commenter anyways. No one cares what you write if it is only one sentence.
- You can comment on old posts if you would like. It doesn’t matter how old the posts are your comments will count.
- The top commentator widget on the right is not correct so do not go by that. I will update everyone every Sunday to let everyone know where they stand.
- All comments that are not relevant will not be counted.
- You will be paid through Paypal.

1. When you hear the term internet business, home internet business, or successful internet business how would you define these, what do they mean to you and your internet business?
Obviously an internet business is having a business that uses the internet as a platform for making sales. Of course, having a "successful" internet business can be the challenge. Anyone can go out and make sales on the internet, but being consistently successful at it is where the challenge comes in.
To be perfectly honest, I see a lot of internet business newbies interested in an easy way to make money fast. This is easy to understand, after all who doesn't want an easy way to make money the fastest way possible? The problem is that this type of focus almost always leads to failure. You might have an internet business but it won't be successful for long.
Your success online, or in any business for that matter, is about finding a good niche, doing your keyword research, creating a website that is user and search engine worthy and providing your viewers with quality updated information that they can use. Establishing trusted relationships with visitors is also extremely important.
It's about helping people find what they need and building customer trust. If you can do that, you are successful in my book. I've been a customer for a lot of businesses but I wasn't a customer for long when they stopped providing the quality of service or products I needed.
2. When you started to make the transition from part time internet business to full time internet business, what was the biggest factor that you learned that you really saw take you to the next level of starting a full time internet business?
Ah ...good question. I would have to say having a plan and getting organized.
When I was at my job it was pretty clear what I had to do each day and I didn't waste a lot of time because there were people all around me that depended on me to get things done. When you work at home for yourself you have a tendency to waste time because there's no one breathing down your neck. It's easy to get sloppy and let things distract you.
Being a business owner means you wear a lot of hats. There's reading email, responding to customers, reviewing sales and other statistics, promoting your sites and other tasks that come up every day. If you aren't organized and focused on what needs to be done, things can really get ahead of you and you'll end up getting nothing done.
Creating goals and having an organized plan for each day is really important.
3. Who has inspired you the most?
I've met some very inspirational people. My first inspiration was Cory Rudl. He's where it all started for me. Cory has since passed away but his enthusiasm and training was so inspiring. It was really a huge loss to the internet marketing world when he died. I have some of his tapes and to this day I'll listen to them if I need a healthy dose of motivation.
I've also been inspired by Robert Kiyosaki, author of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad". If Robert can't get you going, probably no one can.
There are a lot of other folks online who have really inspired me like Ken Evoy, Armand Morin, Frank Kern, John Reese and many others. These people can make it sound easier than it really is to start a business online but in fact they all had a vision and worked hard to make that vision happen.
4. If you could only have one site which one would you take and why?
Wow, I think ebay would be a good one, don't you think? Actually some of the social networking sites like Facebook or Youtube might be fun ;-)
5. This whole Internet business is pretty male dominant. What is it like being a female in this atmosphere?
Well, there are lots of women on the internet, in fact there's been huge growth with stay at home moms creating successful internet home businesses.
When I started out I had friends that would ask me about how they could get started online which actually got me started with creating a site that helped others learn the ropes as well.
I've dealt with many men in my professional career and I don't really distinguish between men and women. Business colleagues are just that, colleagues, and I view them as such. Likewise I would expect them to give me the same treatment.
6. With trends coming and going, what kind of trends do you see in the new future of and involving internet business? And what are the old trends that will be going away?
Well for one thing the search engines are getting more sophisticated and they're getting better at weeding out the junk and the auto-generated stuff. The search engines are striving to clear the way for those building sites that are useful, interesting and genuinely helpful to their visitors.
Blogging and social networking are becoming accepted business tools. RSS and social bookmarking are the necessary online tools as well. The use of blogs within organizations is steadily increasing and with all this internet activity the search engines are doing their best to bring the end user what they are looking for. If your site doesn't measure up, you're out.
There is a ton of new technology emerging every day online. Learn about them and experiment with them.
Gone are the days when you hop online, build a site and begin making sales the next day. The challenge today is to find profitable niches, practice good website creation techniques, understand search engine optimization, utilize profitable promotional strategies and of course offer primo customer service.
7. Greatest tip for someone just starting a internet business?
Find your niche, do your keyword research and add interesting and unique content to your site on a daily basis. If your site helps visitors find what they need…you will be successful.
Don't worry about the competition either because you can overcome that if you develop your own unique style. Create a brand that will stick with people. Find a way to be different by creating a slogan that is you. Focus on your customers and their needs.
Don't think about how you can make the most money, think first about how you can help your readers trust in you and look to you for what they need. Do that first and the money will come.
8. What product or service do you wish someone would create or provide?
I wish someone could figure out a way to abolish spam. I have lots of spam protection but I still get a fair amount of it. Not a big deal but it is annoying.
9. What are some other tips to help people getting started online.
Don't be afraid to network. Get on forums, talk with people, ask questions, offer advice and work with other successful sites by exchanging things like articles and links.
I often ask other site owners about whether they might extend to me a discount of their product that I can offer on my site. For any sales I make we work out a deal to split the profits. Things of that nature really help drum up business.
Attend seminars whenever you can. I know these can be expensive but the business and promotion ideas you get are priceless. Also, it's a great way to make some lasting contacts and friends.
Also, as you begin to make money, always allocate a small percentage of your earnings to put back into your business. This can be for tools, education or whatever you deem necessary. Your business is an investment and you should treat it as such.
Stay patient and persistent and follow your dream. Don't let the naysayers get the best of you. Keep your chin up and your sights high.
10. What are your favorite online marketing models
I absolutely love affiliate marketing and highly recommend it. I've also done wholesale drop shipping and I've created my own informational products.
I think some of the most successful people online are those that do them all. However, I suggest starting with one thing at a time, get it working so that it is profitable then either duplicate that model or try your hand at another, but definitely start with one thing at a time. Too many fingers in too many pies at one time can diminish your success.

So if you been living at all and done any improvement or trying to improve your blog, website, affiliate marketing or anything than you have had to already heard about Stompernet SMARTS. That's right Stompernet Smarts is this new "internet coaching program" targeting Social Media Marketing. Since the new year has started Andy Jenkins has been producing these amazing videos that I believe anyone and all could learn a little something from these videos that we have for you below.
Also to see a full break down of StomperNet Smarts by Andy Beard this is well worth the visit.
So now your asking what's all this talk about StomperNet Smarts Coaching...here is the basic information:
- This is a 10-week of stompernet smarts coaching course
- Every week will be covering different marketing, search engine, and specifically social media marketing getting you closer to your 2008 goals. (we've provided a full outline in the downloadable PDF special report, right at the end)
- Andy Jenkins will be hosting live calls of all your answers and questions each week giving you the chance to get all of your questions covered, plus to listen to issues that others think of that you may not have yet encountered, so you'll learn as much listening to the answers from others as you will from getting your own questions covered.
- We will have periodic teleseminars/webinars with major industry experts and people who are top of their class in specific strategies (very cool calls!)
- There will be an amazing community forum, where those who are members of the SMARTS program can ask questions, get answers, weigh in on other people's questions, share experiences, get their frustrations answered, and build relationships. This is one of the areas that I'm MOST excited about. Remember that one of the essences of social media is "WE are smarter than ME." I'm really looking forward to not only giving you my strategies, techniques, and ideas, but building new techniques as a group. This has never been done before, and should be a key element of this powerful program.)
- Each week you will receive a series of videos that focus on that week's strategies, followed a few days later by the coaching call. The forum will always be open.
There are several friends that I know personally have already signed up for stompernet smarts coaching, so leave a comment on your thoughts about StomperNet Smarts videos, coaching, or anything.
