New Media Made Understandable

101 | Defining Infinite Potential 2 a Finite Mind | BBA in Life

Posted by on Jan 29, 2017

People have perspective, “World View” which is based on their past, their history.  This can be very self-limiting. In order to expand a person’s horizons, their perspective becomes an obstacle, or a tool, depending on how well you understand this. Put simply, in order to move someone upward from where they are, you must first understand who they are, and where they are coming from, and this is done by asking questions, leading questions. In a way, all questions are leading questions, because the person who is asking is leading, and the person who answers is following. A question is not just words, but also tone, volume, body language, and conviction.  Some of my favorite ways to start these questions are: Imagine that…what would you say then? What if I told you that…what would you say then? What if…what would you do then? What do you think about ….? How do you feel about…? My favorite question is this one: “Forget for a moment everything that you believe to be true: suppose that tomorrow it was revealed to you that what...

2017 | Digital Marketing | A Complete Step by Step Guide

How to elect a President over the dead body of the mainstream media: It is not really that hard.  You need to get the META data right, the distribution right (back-links), and the strategy right. Since nobody else is going to do it well, or exactly enough, everything you write ranks for the desired terms, and gets found and seen. In the examples below, each article ranks for multiple desired search terms on Google and the others.  Each is a template for successful content marketing.  By optimizing correctly, distributing correctly, and with the right strategy, you can do it too, if you are willing to get it exactly right. EXAMPLES: For instance: if I search Google for 4 Day Whitewater Rafting  Reservations idaho on Google I find H2O Idaho Whitewater Rafting and Fishing Trips at H2O Idaho.com line one number one in the organic SRP’s.  This is no accident. It was done with proper optimization of the site, and by writing, optimizing, and distributing an article digitally; this one: 248-447-7101 | H2O Idaho Whitewater Rafting and Fishing Trips Reservations | Salmon River This video on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pg/h2oIdaho/videos/...

10 Common Mistakes that Will Ruin a Good Business

10 Common Mistakes that Will Ruin a Good Business

Jul 1, 2016

10 common mistakes that will ruin a good business: What follows is a full disclosure of who I really am, beginning many years ago, when I had my own broker-dealer in Albuquerque NM in 1985, without knowing that I needed the permission of the local Patron to do so: This article was written in 2006: Death of great potential: the Coracle story, told by the founder: Ladies and Gentleman, it is with great sorrow, and the urgency to avoid having what happened to me, happen again, to you, that I share with you this compelling story of the huge potential of a start-up venture which almost achieved greatness in the last five years, and is now a complete loss: The story of Coracle Incorporated, formerly known as Oregonfreeads.com, and Ads for Free, Inc. Oregonfreeads.com was formed as an Oregon corporation in 2001 in Springfield Oregon. My name is Israel Rothman, and I started the company to pursue an idea that my employer could not understand: a way to automate my job. I had been in fleet and Internet sales for a local auto dealership for years, and had become proficient in achieving search engine placement for my employer. As the Internet became more and more competitive, my job became harder and harder to do, requiring me to build mirror sites linked together and employ all sorts of tricks to achieve first page organic placement: my idea was to automate this process by giving away free ads and auctions; using the user input to do my work for me, and build link-popularity and submission activity which would cause the marketplace to move through the website: oregonfreeads.com. I had some rudimentary scripts written, and began selling sponsorships of categories to local businesses. Within a year, we had over 50 companies stuck to the top of the search engines for their chosen words, and we realized that we could actually guarantee results for chosen key word searches. We decided to offer a money-back guarantee; we bought adsforfree.com for $800, and we went nationwide by way of a strategic alliance formed with Real Estate Magazine (RISMedia.com) which put us ‘on the map’ as a provider for the Real...

2016 Amazing Power of a Well-Optimized WordPress Blog

2016 Amazing Power of a Well-Optimized WordPress Blog

May 19, 2016

WordPress is the worlds largest open-source blogging platform: and the most versatile, more user-friendly solution:  a blog like this one can be literally setup and functional in as little as five minutes… However, like anything on the Internet, if it is not optimized properly, it is a waste of five minutes. If it is done well, it is perpetual traffic for free, targeted traffic looking for exactly what is to be found. The content needs to be compelling, but even if it is, if it is not attractive to the eye, and is not optimized properly to be found and seen, it will not feed it’s owner. This is why a free blog, no-matter how easy and simple it is, is usually a complete waste of time.  The average learning curve for a novice to do these things well takes years, and most will never get there, before the proverbial “cheese” moves again. Real advertising, and that is what this is, is a moving target.  The target constantly changes, and so does the weapon, the arrows or bullets, the technology, and the marketplace.  Free advice, more often than not, or a free website at WordPress.org or an inexpensive dumbed-down one at Weebly.com, or the like; is worth exactly what you pay for it; or worse, it leads you into a dead end of complexity and dysfunction. On the other hand, one good blog post distributed properly, can generate 100 or more unique visitors per day immediately, translating into one or two sales per day with the right call to action. To further complicate this issue, servers are identified and categorized by the authority (originality) and authorship of the content generated from that server, so that poor hosting, with novice, poorly optimized, Spam sites, and too many of them on one machine, slow loading, are all factors that shoot the would-be novice entrepreneur in the foot before even getting started. Without the training, professionally maintained code base on dedicated hosting, and support that we provide, you cannot compete, not with me, not with my bloggers, and not with the behemoth lead generators who control many broad three and four word search terms (SRPs)  pages deep...
