Network at Adlandpro for Free and Grow Your Business

I was just searching for articles about Adlandpro and have run into this one which was written in 2007 by Yahoo! Contributor Network Alicia Bodine.  Things are still the same 5 years later.

Can you afford $7.38 to receive 734 visitors through pay per click advertising?

A picture is worth a thousand words.

734 visitors for $7.38 (10,467,219 views)

Adlandpro Pay per click advertising

As you know getting customers to the site is only half of the battle.
The customer has to be willing to buy whatever you offer them.

You have to convince the customer that your product or service
is exactly what they need, and they need it now.

Sometimes even 10 minutes later might be too late, if they have
the chance to discuss it with someone who will plant seeds of
doubts in their minds.

I'm sure you are familiar with Pay per Click advertising.
I want to let you know that we have this kind of system,
which successfully delivers customers to our advertisers for years.

You might be also aware that for example Google Adwords,
the most known PPC advertising system around, is quite expensive
to use these days.

You can't find any reasonable keywords for less than $0.50 and
in some competitive areas even $2 or $20 is not enough to show
in the searches.

Here is my offer to you. Our system is not as popular as Google
Adwords, so our bids are much less competitive.
You can start advertising starting from $0.01.

Remember that a click is a click regardless of where the person
is clicking from, and you only pay if someone clicks.

Also our system is not incentivized like Google Adwords is
where publishers make money based on amount of clicks.

On our site, nobody gets paid for clicking on your ads.
Only interested visitors will click on it.

Heck, for this price you could just run a survey and ask your
customers if what you offer is of any interests to them.

By the way, instead of selling directly, try to get as much information about your visitors first, and then be more targeted.

I call it shooting ducks in the barrel.

So, happy advertising. The Link to order the PPC credits is here:

Design/Plan Your Entire Year - E-Business Success Blueprint Workshop - Part 1

Refer to Introduction here.

Hello again,

I hope you had written down all accomplishments and not-so-good accomplishments in your four areas of success during previous year. Spiritual, Relationship, Health and Business.

Remember all those areas will contribute to your success. If you are feeling like some of those areas have been neglected more than others, this next assignment will be about improving it. I know that many of you would like to dive into business world as this is one of the reasons you are reading it, but believe me taking time and designing your life with all its aspects is much more important than accomplishing just business goals.

"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." Abraham Lincoln

      The next assignment is to design your next year in all 4 areas. You already know what worked for you last year and what didn't. Now write down all you want to do in next year in your four areas. Once you created list of general plans for a year, decide which of those steps you will complete in first 6 months of this year.

       Once you are finished with this, right down your first 3 months of this year. When this is completed, write down your first month's plans for this year. Be truthful to yourself and realistic. Don't write down things which may be very ambitious but hardly doable. You will be only disappointed if you don't get close enough to what you want. E.g if your current salary is $40,000 a year. Don't plan to make $400,000 by the end of this year. If your goal will be $60,000 this is 30% increase which every successful business would consider as very solid accomplishment. Also be very specific.

        The more specific you are the more likely you will be able to accomplish what you want. The important part of this process is to write down all your plans. 8 years ago I have read a book by Brian Tracy where he told me to write down my goals. Guess what, they all happened. He teaches that there was an experiment done at Harvard University where students were told to write their goals. Bear with me as I take those numbers from memory, but this will give you a general idea. It turned out that only around 3% of them wrote their goals. 10 years later those students were contacted and interviewed. All students who were in these 3% were making income at least 5 times higher than any student out of 97% remaining percent. 1% of the students out of the 3% group was making 10 times more than anybody else.

      When you write down things, you are making it official. You also have to concentrate on things which you want to right down and then you start seeing them better. This acts like brainstorming session where you are the only one who participates. In addition things which are written down make you accountable. You know that this goals are written down somewhere and when you read it next year, you don't want to disappoint yourself.

      In addition your subconscious mind is registering this and does work for you, much like with driving a car. Notice that sometimes when you drive, you don't even remember what happened while you were driving. Your subconscious took care of your driving. Isn't this wonderful? So now, if you want that things happen to you, write them down.

For example my just high level plans in four areas for this year are.


  • Meditate each day for at least 20-30 minutes 
  • Read one fiction/entertainment book each month
  • Go to the movies/opera/museum once a month
  • Read one biography each month


  • Go out with my wife twice a month 
  • Go to the park/walk with the entire family each Sunday 
  • Visit friends at least once a month 
  • Talk to family in Poland at least once a month

  • Keep my weight goal
  • Go to the gym at least 2-3 a week
  • Run at least 2 times a week
  • Take my vitamins 
  • Look for partners and  like minded people 
  • Get into social network world and use it to grow my business
  • Run at least one promotion each month
  • Run or participate in at least one seminar 
  • Make my business available for mobile market
So as you see these are very high level goals which I'm then breaking down into more specific goals in the 6, 3 and then one 1-month scale. On top of this I have daily goals which I make day before. Again, if you want things happen for you, write them down. What doesn't get written down, won't happen.
It is now important that I get your feedback here and you give me your high level goals of yours for the next year.

The next step soon.

E-Business Success Blueprint Workshop - Introduction (Can your last year's failure be this year's success?)

 Some years ago I have offered workshop on successful business creation for limited group of members. I've been in online business since 1998 and I can easily admit that I have failed as many times as I have succeeded. Probably I failed more times than succeeded but it doesn't feel that way if you have something you can enjoy. There were numerous ideas which never took off even after considerable effort and time invested and there were ideas which with little initial investment worked and were quickly embraced. During the period since 1998 till now (Feb 2013) (this is 14 years) various technologies have changed and  many new concepts were created in order to reach customers and to reach the appropriate group in most efficient way with least cost and time. What didn't change is the psychology of humans and principle of motivation and bases of person success.

The course which I have offered addressed both issues. Technology and psychology of an individual and psychology of the crowd. In oder to use technology in most efficient way, one has to understand basic principles of human behavior. The best technology won't be helpful if we don't know where to apply it.

In addition understanding of the psychology of business success is need for the person who is embarking on the path of success. To succeed one needs to have desire to succeed and this is all which matters at the beginning. The one has to decide on some basic goals, write them down and stick to it. Read them daily and enhance them along the path.

Later on, one can refine the goals and even adjust them, but this is when new knowledge and experience is already available after many stumbling blocks.

To sum it up, one has to start doing something and the easiest is to first write it down and then start executing it according to some schedule.

So lest go to introduction of my E-Business Success Blueprint Workshop.

Can your last year's failure be this year's success?

Part of planning and setting goals is a retrospective look back to analyze what in our lives didn't go the way we wanted in the past. Consider what went good as expected, what went better than expected and what went totally wrong. When we talk about business goals we tend to forget about our other areas of our lives, like health, relationship and our spiritual world.

For today's assignment let’s analyze our last year and put it into perspective. The purpose of this is not to criticize our bad moves or get overly excited about our successes. This exercise will help us determine what contributed to our success and what contributed to our failure so we can use this information in coming year.

When you analyze this, think about these four major areas of your life. Mental, Relationship, Health and Financial. All these above areas have to be balanced. If any of them receives less of your attention, your life won't be a total success. If even one of the areas is neglected, you won't be able to enjoy your 3 remaining areas. Quite often, the most neglected areas are health and relationship. We tend to leave those for the last and most of the time we are too tired to take care of them. Think how you fared in all four areas.

Mental -- Have you spent enough time reading light books and inspirational material? Have you relaxed as often as you should? Have you gone to places where you can rest uninterrupted and reflect on your life? Have you gone to church (if you are religious) as much as you wanted to?

Relationship --Have you spent enough time with your spouse, mate, parents and kids. Did you go to the movies together? How often have you told your loved ones that you love them? How often have you told your loved ones about what you love in them? Have you spent enough time with your friends? How many friends do you have? If you can't think of any friends, or there are just a few, this is troubling area.

Health -- Have you exercised regularly? Are you eating healthy and avoiding foods which make you sick? Are you overweight or out of shape? What have you done to improve your health problems?

Financial -- Have you made as much money as you wanted? Have you spent enough time to learn skills or knowledge which would give you an edge over your coworkers and competition. Have you created partnerships and joint ventures to increase your business? Once you go over those points, this will be around 50% or more work done for your next year's goals. The most important part is to ask the correct questions. If you can ask the question, there will be an answer. You might not like the answer but this is what you need to make your life more balanced and fulfilling in this coming year. If you skip this section of our mentoring process, this is like skipping the foundation of your building. You can proceed with building of the house but it will tumble down probably one day or you even won't start it as because the foundation will be missing and there won't be enough motivation to continue. Get your thoughts flowing and this will be an eye opener for you.

You will be surprised. 

Next lesson....
