Subway, McDonalds, Jreck Subs....What do they all have in common. They are all considered a Franchise.

It does not matter which one you go into, you can expect the same quality of food and service because they follow a clearly defined set of rules and expectations so that they run a smooth operation.

This is the basis of a franchise. It is the closest you could get to a plug and play as basically all you need to do is follow the plan and let the magic work. These are usually successful businesses as long as they are set up as they were meant to be.

If you are willing to put the time and effort into learning the system and training others to learn and master the system, you will see success happen. All you need to get going in the beginning is anywhere from $100,000 to a million dollars or more.

Though this may sound like more than you can handle, the benefits should follow assuming you follow the system. Another thing to consider is that some of these franchises also have yearly fees as well tacked onto owning the franchise, unless you are able to buy it outright.

This major cost alone puts many people off from purchasing a franchise and this is where Mike Filsaime shows how to build a franchise for almost nothing.

If you are involved in online Marketing, Mike Filsaime is one of the major players becuase of his products like butterfly marketing, 7 figure code, tweetglide, Evergreen Business systems and much more. Needless to say, he has been able to build a system that has made him very successful.

Mike Filsaime shows how to build a franchise for almost nothing in his recent webinar using his own systems and products he has created and tested out to be very beneficial to marketers of all stature. Just like Subway, McDonalds or Jreck subs, following Mike Filsaimes business model is plug and play.

Mike Filsaime will walk you through what needs to be done from getting the domain established to appropriate hosting of the site, which he even throws in if you want it! The training and guidance involved and included for future reference in the back office is priceless and will hold your hand as you continue to grow your business.

This is a system that can be followed and made to be successful asuming the right steps are taken. The major difference between Mike Filsaime's franchise model and the big fast food chain restaurants is the idea of cost. You will pay a mere fraction of the cost to get your own system up and running.

Instead of hundreds of thousands of dollars, you might pay only a couple hundred dollars. Considering that you would pay this in learning all the rope in regards to the how to's, the do's and don'ts, the when's and the where's, the training is well worth the value included.

The products themselves are necessary and hold valuabe information to the viewer and getting people to visit the site will be the most important thing to focus on for your part, because everything else is set up for you. Again, this is where the plug and play comes in as everything is build in to run the same way, regardless of where it is located, this being just like a franchise.

Mike Filsaime has developed this franchise system to be in business with you, but to only take a small fee. Again, unlike a large sum of money for monthly fees, this is only mere dollars you are talking about here.

So take a few minutes and see where Mike Filsaime shows how to build a franchise for almost nothing. He has set aside a few times for you to pick the one that is most convenient for you.

I just found out about Banner Ad Rockstar http://bit.ly/RockstarAds

This is a free software program that lets you create banner ads for all the standard sizes typically associated with online ads. Their simple format allows you to easily create ads in minutes. The sample above I actually created while I was litterally falling asleep at my computer the other night. I just had to try it out to believe it.

Now I could have spent anywhere from $5-$100 to get a banner package made by a designer, but instead I did not spend a dime. The basic package is free for the lifetime of the product and allows you to make as many ads as you want in the following formats, .jpeg, .gif and .png.

If you want to do animated gif as well as flash, they do offer an upgraded package as well as additional databases for you to use as much as you want. Again, considering the cost of having to pay someone else to make them you will more than break even in the long run should you choose to upgrade.

Once you realize how easy it is, you will be pulling out ads left and right to be able to run split tests with ease. They have a copy function that allows you to copy your current ad, which can then easily be changed in regards to a heading, color, call to action etc.

Banner Ad Rockstar http://bit.ly/RockstarAds is one of those software's out there today that can make your life online that much easier by saving you time and money. Heck, you might even have fun doing it.

As we all want to lower our overhead costs, this is an ideal method that provides high quality products that will suite the needs of your business or blog. You can easily save your image and upload wherever you want or send it as an attachment to a local newspaper or similar printed publication as well as a national magazine.

The choice is yours. Continue to pay others to make your ads for you, or save a bunch of your own hard earned cash and quickly and easily do it yourself.

I have been working online for over two years now in one way or another and have been using GVO http://bit.ly/HostWithGVO to run just about all my websites.

If you are already involved in online marketing you know that being able to build a list of clients/customers and maintain contstant contact with them is one of the most vital things you need to do. Having an Autoresponder and opt-in forms allows you to do this with ease.

Another major thing people searching for in their goal to build a presence online is a blog. Regardless of what your niche is, having one that is totally yours that you could put whatever you wanted on it will be able to stay with you in case you change niches. GVO Host Then Profit http://bit.ly/HostWithGVO has a great Blogger Builder software that gets you up and running in minutes.

As with many marketers, training and support is always needed and the 24 hour live support and weekly training sessions are priceless. You could pay hundreds to get this type of information from some self proclaimed guru, or you can use what is included in a less than $10 a month membership.

Using GVO Host Then Profit http://bit.ly/HostWithGVO is not only smart for the marketer in regards to the programs it offers, but for the fact that it is a business in and of itself. When you are a member, you can promote to other marketers and earn commissions when they use the service as well. Unlike your typical mlm, this does not require you to promote, nor does it require you to have boxes upon boxes stored in your garage or basement with products you try to push on your friends and relatives.

With the economy of the world rather bleak right now, we all are looking to make it and safe money at the same time. GVO Host Then Profit http://bit.ly/HostWithGVO allows you to do this. For less than $10 a month you will hardly even know you are paying for the service...Have some commissions coming in and it will be nothing!

I would be doing the internet world a disservice by not sharing how good this is and thus you need to go try GVO Host Then Profit http://bit.ly/HostWithGVO today. Even if you already are content with your own provider, you will see the many values I have presented here hold true and are worth maximizing.

To provide some value for you here as well once you take action, you will have access to me for anything you can't find yourself. I will also send you a copy of Omar Martin's Speedy Profit Creator. Omar gave me rights to resell this and I will send you a physical copy in DVD format when you move forward! This is a killer series of 10 videos that bring through many steps of marketing to get your first product out and is what helped me get going in many areas of online marketing.

As I live by this, Take Action, Revise Later!

I just found out that Mark Hoverson decided to re-open his Irresistible Information Marketing Blueprint.  Not that it really matters for me in that I already own it, but more for the general public who could not get off the fence a couple months ago and take action.

Well consider yourself fortunate as you now have the ability to invest in yourself with the product.  To be honest, I am a little behind the eight ball here, in that I am going throught the first module right now myself, while others might have moved through the course.

No big deal here as you can go at your own pace.  You see, I moved this summer and was basically renovating the house myself, so my marketing took a backseat for a while, but now I am ready to go and would love to have you join in the course with me as I am ready to move forward.

http://bit.ly/MarkHoversonInformationBlueprint

When they first opened, in the first 24 hours alone, they sold 1200 copies at $297 each. As you possibly decided to not take him up on this price you will have to fork over $497 at least now...But he is more than hooking you up for the extra cost with extra training and help that will make it worth your while. 

You will have to come see what Mark Hoverson has to say himself!

Why You Want to Host Your Own Website

In life you often want to have control over how things work out. Sometimes you want others to lead you along the way and tell you how things are going to be and you go with the flow. Being a follower, rather than a leader in the case of online marketing can sometimes work for you, while other times it can destroy your chances of success.

If you are just starting out, listening to a marketing "guru" can help you make some crucial decisions on what steps to take in order to get going. One of the most recurring themes that come out is the basics that you must start with in order to progress. This basic, is in reference to web hosting. The other main component that goes hand in hand with this is having your own domain as well. You can pick these up rather inexpensively from many places on the web.

When you get a domain, you are often offered a small hosting package, though this usually comes with limited capabilities as well. You lose a sense of control here and are not able to take the complete lead over what could possibly be available for your website compared to having your own host where you could incorporate more code (HTML etc.) that would allow you to have a higher functioning site.

The major thing you want to look for is what is known as the cPanel. This is short for control panel and is what allows you to manipulate you site to meet your needs. Adding code, blogs, forums, shopping carts and having access to easily load up files, pictures, audio and more are just some of the key features included in a cPanel that give you a tremendous advantage when designing your layout.

If you want to just go with the blog format, having the fantastico software will make you life easier in quickly being able to install your blog in a matter of minutes. Now, do not get me wrong, the blog itself will take quite a while in making it appear how you like it (which is a story for another article). This includes things like widgets, advertising/AdSense, banners, opt-in forms and much more. As the search engines are more friendly towards blogs as they are updated more, you have a better chance of receiving generic traffic than if you would if you went with a static website that never changed.

With the changes in technology occurring, it is not enough to just have a Facebook page or a twitter account, having a running website that people can view is important and again, stressing your ability to control it is the most important thing. There is no time like the present to start your own website. Everyone has the capabilities to have a great product in their mind, or even to promote a great product for someone else. The best way to become successful is to solve peoples problems and I am sure you have it in you one way or another to help solve something.

Now you just need to go out and start solving it while controlling it yourself!

David Gardner hosts over 50 websites on his own. He controls them by putting whatever he wants on his sites and mostly with knowledge he picked up by learning it himself. He thinks you can learn it easily as well. If you want to find out more about getting your own hosting so you can control things how you want them to and get some tips from him, go to http://MyGVOTrial.com and take control of your business, or your pleasure.

Why Analytics Matter in Your Web Hosting Plan

When you consider getting set up with a new hosting provider for your website (blog, e-store etc.) one of the key features you need to make sure is included is that of analytics.

Analytics are basically the statistics of your website. Why would this be important you might ask. You want to be able to know where people are coming from to visit your site. If you have an affiliate link of some sort, you want to make sure you can determine where your traffic is coming from in the outside world.

If you think about marketing of old times, a company might put an add out in the newspaper, on radio or in the local pennysaver. Unless there was a specific item or code the customer used, you would have no way to determine where the traffic was coming from. Perhaps they made different ads for each place (which takes extra time, effort and sometimes money if you hire a designer) that allowed them to determine where it came from.

In magazines sometimes there will be a code related to the issue and date etc., though online this seems to be a little more difficult. if you go to some website which allow you to post a link to your site that gets blasted out to multiple other sites and social networks, you have no idea where the traffic is coming back from to visit your site.

Analytics help this out in letting you know such things as where you visitors where from, in regards to country as well as what sites they came from. This can then allow you to tweak how you run your advertising campaigns and save you money. There is no need to continue spending money on ads in one location if it does not bring people into your sites.

Google Analytics is one program that allows you to do this for free (if you have a Google account of course) though if you do not know the first thing about HTML and code for developing a website, you will be totally at a loss for setting this up. Some hosting providers provide varying degrees of analysis that can help you determine if your efforts have been set up appropriate or not.

Having a combination of these two is sometimes necessary to cover all the bases and also get you ranked better on Google itself as they are getting your data firsthand instead of generically. When you go to get your first web hosting provider or if you are looking to change, make sure you have some sort of analytic framework with which to validate your investments.

Dave Gardner likes to know where his visitors come from. You can get the same traffic analyzer he uses to keep track of your websites at http://MyGVOTrial.com.

Why Support Multi Level Marketing?

With so many business opportunities out there today, you would think you would not want anything to do with ones that have unfortunately often been associated with the word "scam"! Another word that often might come up is a "scheme" (as in Ponzi scheme).

If you are involved in any aspect of marketing or business, you most likely have either belonged to an mlm, or were at least prospected into one, where you might have gone to a hotel meeting or someone's house to hear all about the great benefits of their matrix/compensation plan and maybe you even learned a little about products now and again.

The MLM industry is the perfect grounds for those who want to teach and those who want to be taught.

If you think about starting a business, you might have had the idea to start a store, or a franchise. This can financially destroy an entrepreneur as there are large start up costs, up to a million dollars and more sometimes, as well as franchise fees that may be due yearly. Compare this to the start up costs associated with MLM which might only run a few hundred or thousand dollars a year.

If someone fails in the franchise, they are deep into debt, while in MLM, it is feasible that they will be able to restore any small debt they incurred rather quickly. This assumes that they do possess another job while they are attempting to start up their MLM.

In regards to education and teachability, with the big companies and regular jobs, if you fail, you get fired, plain and simple. In the MLM world another reason why business men agree you should try this system is because it is the exact opposite where you can continually fail month after month and instead those members in your upline will continually work with you to help you out so that you start having successes. The upline has invested time, energy and possibly even their own money into them and therefore they want them to become successful as well.

The products involved in an MLM are not necessarily the important thing to consider when joining one, though you might want to find one that does hold some interest it you. You want to enjoy the products and have pride in talking to people about them. The community however, is really what entrepreneurs can benefit from when joining an MLM as everyone has the main goal to see all others succeed. Sharing ideas either online, over the phone and especially in person over coffee or at a major conference are all ways to improve yourself and learn how the top people have become successful.

As the saying goes, "You get out of it what you put into it" and when you put the right effort in and listen to those who have been successful, there is a high likelihood that you will become successful as well. Taking action on what they believe to be a good way to becoming financially independent could be one of the smartest choices you ever make today.

Helping others to help themselves

Recently I have been emailing back and forth with someone who is just starting out in online marketing. Like many others they are working hard to provide for their family and perhaps want to be able to do it from home.

Now this brings me to my time as a Peace Corps Volunteer where my main goal was to help others to help themselves.

I spent almost 2 years living in the South Pacific, The Solomon Islands to be specific where I taught at a bording school for both science and math. I also had some side projects where I helped finish a multi-purpose sports court as well as re-opening the library.

As this was somewhat different from the norm of teaching a teacher, I was teaching the youth of the country and spreading ideas that were not meant to change their customs, but to allow them to continue experiencing them for future generations.

A major example of this was in regards to the poaching of endangered leatherback turtle eggs. There were 300 plus students at a school that did not exist when these turtles had hatched some 30-40 years previous. With the current population removing eggs for their own tasty benefit, there was a high likelyhood that there would not be any more turtles coming to nest in the future.

So how the heck does this relate to working online? Well in one regards it is called the ripple effect. Where you change one thing and you might not see immediate improvements or large changes but over time, the small ripple turns into waves that have spread over great distances.

Online, making one post with valuable content can awaken someone to their potential and spark a new trend or allow them to overcome that hurdle that was keeping them back from converting their sales etc.

When I share my knowledge, I am helping others to help themselves. Providing a solution to peoples problems online gives me joy in many ways. If they continue to maintain a relationship with me and my site I am more the merrier. If they don't have time and move onto their own thing, I wish them the best of luck.

The goal again is to be able to educate as many as possibly to the possibilities. Everyone has some knowledge or expertise that is hidden deep in their minds. Getting them to take action and revise later (TARL) is an important task here as many "think" about doing something, but never do.

Don't just try something, do it! Have confidence that you can be successful and seek out help where it is needed. The internet is an amazing place where people are generally good and willing to help you out.

Please leave your comments on anything you might need help with to get you started! I will do my best to help you out.

Every smart marketer knows you should try to save wherever you can.

Why you haven't decided to do so is beyond me!

==> Go Here to save http://BarefootPainting.hostthenprofit.com

Why continue to lose when you can have everything you need and save?

Even the village idiot gets it and is ready to strike the online marketers for making a foolish choice.

Here's the gift...not take it
