When they say the money is in the list they are right on the money! The money is in the list but the problem is that most of the time it’s your money and not the other way around. If you think about it, most of the time, the person whose list you’ve just joined doesn’t care about you at all. The last thing on their mind is making you a fortune because all they’re really interested in is increasing their own.
It’s like when you used to get those phone calls telling you that they can show you how you can make a couple of thousand dollars a week. Now they ask for your email address so they can send you the information promising you a followup call. What do you think that followup call is going to be all about? They’re going to try and sell you something, that’s what!

How Not To Get Sucked In By Lists
Send Me Your Money (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
The way I look at it if those guys were making so much money why are they bothering me with it. It’s not because they want to share their good fortune, although that is what they want you to believe. Nope, they need you to buy whatever they’re selling so they can continue to live the life they’re used to.
The guy behind almost every list you’ve joined is just the same as the guy making those obnoxious phone calls. They don’t care about me, they’re only interested in getting their hands on my hard earned money. If they really were interested in me they would do more than just send me some generic email in the hope that I would buy whatever it is they were selling. You’d think the least they would do would be to personalize it somewhat. I don’t mean that they should send a different email to everyone on the list either. Nope, what I mean is they should personalize it by writing something that tells me exactly what it can do for me. Most won’t though because they have no idea what the product their selling does because they haven’t actually outlaid the money to buy their own.
But never mind all that. You want to know how not to get sucked into buying stuff from lists you’ve subscribed to. Read the rest of this entry
I know that there are a lot of bloggers out there who want to monetize their blogs and I also know that the majority of them want to do it on the cheap. This means that they do not want to spend any money doing so. This is why they join Adsense, ClickBank, Commission Junction and other such sites and then scratch their heads when nothing much happens. Sure a trickle of money finds its way into their account but nowhere near enough for them to live on.
I know all this because I was one of those bloggers. It then came to me what I was doing wrong. I wasn’t investing any money, apart from hosting fees, into my online business and as most businessmen will tell you, you’re not going to get far without pumping some money into your business in order to make it grow. My first investment was purchasing a professional theme. That worked well but it took awhile before I realised it wasn’t enough and I started investing in WordPress plugins.
As WordPress users we all know what a great platform it is and one of the things that makes it so great is the amount of plugins available for it. I decided that just as going all out and buying a professional theme worked well for me then perhaps going beyond the free plugins and purchasing professional ones would also do the trick.
And so I started on my hunt for professional plugins, plugins that I believed increased my chances to make money online. Some of the plugins I’ve purchased include.
- CommentLuv Premium
- WP Zon Builder
- IM Graphics
- Covert Messenger
- Pay Per View
To name a few. For this post I’m going to introduce you to another plugin that I’ve just purchased. This one will help you to publish, customise and monetize the videos on your WordPress blogs. According to the publisher this plugin is normally sold for $67 but JP Schoeffel, more commonly known simply as JP, is running a crazy sale where he is offering a 80% discount and as you know I’m not one to miss out on a sale, especially when I can see the potential in the plugin I am purchasing. Which is why I always publish a post almost immediately after purchasing the plugin so I can offer my readers the same deal, just as I did when I bought Andy’s CommentLuv Premium
and I know there are a lot of disappointed bloggers who waited too long thereby missing out on the incredible savings.
Introducing Easy Video Press
I’m sure many of you have read about the value of YouTube videos and how more and more bloggers are using it to provide valuable content to their blogs. I’m also sure there are a lot of people out there who having this knowledge they don’t know what to do with it. Many do not even know how to embed a YouTube video into their blogs! Enter the Easy Video Press plugin! This plugin resolves three ‘what ifs’ situations.
- What if I could easily Publish any video on a blog without writing a single line of code, or without pasting obscure embed code?
- What if we could easily Customize this video in any way we want withought getting our hands dirty and with just a few clicks, directly on the blog?
- Finally, it’s great to be able to easy publish and customize videos, but What If I could easily Monetize this video?
The Easy Video Press provides the answer for all those ‘what ifs’ and it’s why I believe bloggers out there will want to purchase it, both for their own benefit as well as being able to offer it to their readers as an affiliate. Hang on a sec, what’s that? You want to know how it allows you to monetize your videos. Let me list them for you.
How It Monetizes Your Video
- Share (send to friend) option (not for .swf videos)
- Overlay can be linked to another web page
- Redirect to new page when the video or YouTube or sound playback finishes
- All of the above can be done on a video by video basis
Can you see the potential? You can install a video about whatever your promoting and once the video has played out it can direct the viewer to whatever product or affiliate you’re promoting. As an example, let’s say you’re promoting a weight loss product. You find a YouTube video that promotes weight loss, adjust the settings for Easy Video Press and then once the video has completed it will automatically direct the viewer to whatever weight loss product you’re affiliated with.
It doesn’t have to be a sales page either, it can be whatever url you choose including one of your own posts! I’m sure you can see the money making potential here. Heck, you can even install your own cover page or logo to the video and make it linkable! Honestly, you should just get Easy Video Press before the price goes up because I don’t know how long you will be able to get it for the incredible price of $18.75
