Build your own pension with time instead of money – click here to find out how

This quote takes things a step further:

The report’s author, Michael Johnson, has suggested that the end of the fund will mean that the government needs to take radical steps. He suggests that it should bring an end to the National Insurance system – and that the Chancellor ought to announce this in the Autumn Statement. He suggests that the current approach of adding it to the income tax bands should make way for a single tax matching the total tax we currently pay on income – namely 32%, 42% and 47%.

But perhaps most shocking is the effect he is predicting for future generations. Johnson suggests that: “Given that exhaustion is inevitable, the next generation should be advised that their State Pension will be, at best, derisory. Indeed, it would be prudent to plan around not receiving anything at all.” He warns that for people aged 45 and under there’s every chance that the pension will be more modest, and retirement dates much later. For those under the age of 35 he says that there may be no state pension at all.

So Instead of investing money in the government’s bankrupt pension scheme, why not invest some of your own time to build something much, much better? Click here to find out how.

YouTube’s First EVER Video: Me at the Zoo

Jawed Karim’s impressive geek skills also include being the main coder for Paypal’s real-time anti-fraud protection algorithms, so he’s a prety clever guy 🙂 & he now runs Youniversity Ventures.

So what was it that has made Jared SO incredibly successful? Well, you might think that’s a bit of a daft question, as we all already KNOW that the answers is "YouTube!".

But that’s the power of hindsight. Prior to 2005, YouTube didn’t exist.

And then Jared had a killer idea, which led to what he calls a killer application:

 

 (this is taken from his October 2006 presentation here: http://www.youtube.com/user/jawed#p/u/3/nssfmTo7SZg )

Now, I would dare to go a little step further with this definition, and with my marketing hat on, say this:

A Killer Product or Service is one which is so desirable in its benefits to the end-user, that

it becomes the de facto tool or system that everybody leaps on without any hesitation,

because its real and perceived value is so obvious to all. 

Now, I’ve been riding the Web Waves for a couple of years now, and prior to that I was involved in some pretty geeky projects, so I reckon I know when I can spot such a killer application.

Last week, I came across one, after chatting to a new friend on Facebook. I was looking for a smarter alternative to Goto Webinars, that leveraged video as a core part of the offering, but also at an affordable price.

Well, rather than going into lots of details here (because this is about YouTube after all), I want you to find out yourself, by watching the video below.

If you are involved in any kind of marketing, and you recognise how leveraging video is key to being able to connect with clients and prospects,  then sign up to get instant access to the free 22 minute presentation.

 

 

As you might know by now, I’m part of a community of online marketers who are committed to mastering the changes necessary to become successful in business.

I was recently listening to a call from one of the top marketers in this community, and she made the following statement during the call:

 

"Write down the top 20 qualities of the type of person you want to work with".

So, here it is. As you read down this list, if you’re saying "yes" to these, then click on my picture at the end of this post, fill in your name, email address & phone number, and I’ll give you a call.

20 Qualities of People Who I Want to Work With

  2. Committed to self-mastery and personal development

I’ve just been listening to Mike Dillard & Brian Fanale on a webinar talking about how to build your own home based business.

Mike Dillard started in Network Marketing 5 years ago, and Brian a bit less.

Both of them have come from ground zero to now form multi million dollar businesses.

Both of them work with top companies, but they both realised early on that to be a true business owner, you must market yourself, not the business whose products you are wanting to sell.

The reason for that is obvious: companies fail, distributorships get revoked.

The real secret that both Mike & Brian model is that they both decided early on to offer value to their potential clients more than selling to them.

But how do they continue to build their own businesses in the face of so many opportunities and potential distractions?

Mike’s simple answer is to make sure that every single day before he goes to sleep, he does the following:

  • Make a list of the top 5 things you must do to move your business forward
  • Be specific in those top five tasks
  • Don’t go to bed until you’ve completed those tasks
Obviously, getting to the point where you’re able to accurately judge your ability to complete those tasks is a skill in itself..but the more you practice, the better you’ll get at laying these bricks.

Mike Dillard is an industry leader in the network marketing industry because he has combined this “build your mansion brick by brick” with a tremendous desire to give value to others.

If you’re looking to move your business forwards, and want to look over his shoulder (and those of other 7-figure earners in the home business industry), then make sure you get on the early-bird list for his next product, “What’s Working Now” – as it looks to be one of the key skillset & mindset products of 2010 to help network marketers move their businesses forward.

Have You Got Six Appeal?

For anyone that’s been around for a while, you have almost certainly heard of the legendary rise of Gary Vaynerchuk. If not, just use Google.com or even better – search.twitter.com.

Gary definitely has what I call SIX APPEAL.

So, what is Six Appeal, and why would you want it?

Well, here it is in a nutshell:

Six Essential Qualities That Are Guaranteed to Get Others to Follow You And Buy Your Stuff.

So, what are these six essential qualities?

You know the first three:

  • Know you
  • Like you
  • Trust you

It’s almost become a mantra that personal branding mentors, network marketers and home business owners soothingly send themselves to sleep with every night, and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning.

Seriously a minute: we all know there is nothing new in the KLT formula above. It’s not new to the world of direct sales or marketing. It’s fundamental to the way societies hold together: everyone wants to be known, liked and trusted, and/or be part of a community which reflects and shares those values.

What about the other three keys to Six Appeal?

As usual, someone (OK, it was me) always likes to come up with a simple "It’s as easy as A,B,C" system to help you remember this sort of thing, so here it is:

People want to follow others who are:

  • Able
  • Bold
  • Clever

Now before you shoot me down here, let me qualify where I’m going:

Able – someone who has a high degree of skill or experience in a particular field, in other words an expert. Gary clearly knew a lot about wine when he launched his web-business. Score 1.

Bold – someone who is not afraid to take risks and try things others have never done before. http://tv.winelibrary.com was an unheard of and untried phenomenon before Gary got there. Score 2.

Clever – someone who is able to creatively put together ideas and thoughts to make something new, brilliant, or incredibly useful. Or some combination of all of those, or more. Score 3 Gary.

 

So, by my definition, Gary Vaynerchuk scores 6/6. So he DEFINITELY has Six Appeal.

Hey – but what if you don’t like him? Well, not everybody like his raw language. But that’s who he is. Raw. Uncut. Not afraid. Gary. Himself.

So, if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur who is trying to carve out a niche, gain a following, become a leader in your own right, take a leaf ouf of WineLibrary.tv ‘s founder.

Don’t just be liked, known and trusted. Add the other three ingredients to the mix, because when you have something of great value to others, you’ll have the A, B, C as well as the K, L, T.

Right, I’m off to study Hungarian basket weaving like nobody has ever done it before. <joke>.

What should you do to avoid the slide into poverty through forced redundancy?

How will you manage your debt when your income looks set to become uncertain?

These and many other questions are undoubtedly being asked by many people today across the United Kingdom, as the official figures released by the government  show how fragile and unstable our current economic model has become in the face of the global economic metropolis that we are now all part of.

The biggest question each one of us needs to answer is: what will I do to avoid the increasing likelihood of long term poverty, the likes of which we haven’t known since the 1940’s and 1950’s?

The only viable answer, as I’ve previously blogged, is to become financially independent through entrepreneurship. The illusion of a guaranteed job for life was shattered a long time ago, but now we are faced with the distinct possibility of there being no real jobs of any economic value for many of us.

What are you doing about this dilemma?

If you don’t have a plan B yet, get one now.

 

Hal Varian, Chief Economist at Google, talks about Quailty Score & Cost per click in PPC advertising.

Key Components to your website:

These all affect your quality score

  • Relevant, original content
  • Be easily navigable
  • Quick load time
  • Minimum pop-ups or pop-unders
  • Be transparent about the nature of your business – how your site interacts with the visitor’s computer, and how you intend to use the visitor’s personal information

Google Quality Score

Google Quality Score

Adrank & Cost-per Click

Google determines your ad rank according to the Quality Score x your maximum bid; the higher the product of these two numbers, the better you ad rank and the higher up you’ll be in the paid advertising rankings.

Plus, you won’t have to pay so much to get in the number one slot. In fact, if your quality score goes up as a result of you tweaking your pages (as per the above checklist), then you could end up paying less for the number one slot compared to the person below you.

Cost per Click(2)

Your CPC = Your Competitor's Ad rank below you/Your QS

In other words, it really pays (literally!) to follow the Google adwords training on what makes a good quality score: When I first started Search Engine or PPC marketing, I was aware of the need to have a good quality score, but I didn’t really have enough experience or knowledge to know how to get my Quality Score higher, so I wasted lots of money.

If you’re starting out in Search Engine Marketing, Pay per click advertising, or affiliate marketing, John Reese’s new course is an ideal companion to the free stuff that Google provides – click the image below to find out more.
