What are you doing for your business today?

Someone told me once to do 4 income generating things per day.

4 is just a number – for you it might be 6 or 3 or 9. The number doesn’t matter.

What does matter – are the income generating things.

What does that mean? It means… a task that, either immediately or in the future, will make you money.

What are some examples of this?

  • write a blog post
  • write an email to your list
  • make a new splash page
  • make a new squeeze page
  • sign up for an autoresponder
  • introduce yourself to someone new in chat, and ask them what *they* are promoting.
  • signup for a new mailer
  • mail an email from that mailer
  • spend $2 on a ptc program
  • put your splash page in a new traffic exchange, and assign credits

Is surfing an income producing activity? Yes. Yes it is. To make your business REALLY take off, however, do 3 other things each day, too!

Introvert? I think so, and i’m glad.

I’ve been called Shy, Quiet, Stuckup, Weird, Introvert – among other things.

The definition of Introvert that I always knew was – somebody who didn’t like to do things with people. Somebody who always stayed home.

Well, that’s kinda me… but not.

I finally stumbled upon a blog post – that IS me. And… I AM an Introvert. I like it.

Here’s that post, from Jerry Brito’s Blog

Top ten myths about introverts

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.

Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.

Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.

Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.

Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.

Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.

This list was inspired by the book The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World by Marti Laney.

How to get Conversions at MaxTrafficPro

Hello again!

I’ve been an upgraded member at MaxTrafficPro for a few years now – I bought a yearly subscription.

It has MORE than paid for itself.

An upgraded member gets 50% commission.  It’s pretty easy to get people to join MaxTrafficPro – so you CAN get that commission.  You’ll also get random referrals, too – that helps a TON.

Now… to get NOTICED while the MTP members are surfing – is another matter – which is what I wanted to talk about today.

I do use AdKreator…  so I can make pages that are different than everybody elses.  I’ve also finally gotten up the nerve to actually do videos on my splash pages.  Yeah, YIKES.

But… the cool thing is…  once you do a few, you really get used to it.  I was really REALLY nervous at first – and rambled on and on.  But, what that did for me, was helped me to connect with other people, who would be REALLY nervous to do videos – and so it helps them get to know like and trust me.

In AdKreator – you can set up a simple page – just do the video on your laptop, most computers come with cameras these days.  Then, upload the video to YouTube.

After it processes – you’ll get a link.  You’ll click the “Share” button down below the video, and get the “embed” code.

Take that code to Adkreator – choose a Squeeze Page template – and put the code in the “video” box.  You can add an MTP banner (or whatever you’re promoting) code to the page as well – and boom!  You have a GREAT splash page!

Here’s a video – I’m sure this’ll help!

Hardly anyone is doing things this way in MTP – so you can really stand out – and get lots of signups!
