Some of you have been a registered subscriber to this site since 2012. Thank you for your continuing support.
Aweber gave me feedback today that they only want users registered within the last six months for automatic inclusion in Aweber mailing lists.
If you registered as a subscriber to this website before February, 2014, you will need to sign-up for this mailing list on your on or sign-up for another list.
The big project I’m working on is building a Wealth-Sharing-Tribe. Follow that link to sign-up for the tribe and to view a video with details.
Notice to all subscribers to JoelMonty.info
For whatever reason, the tie-in with Aweber for the JoelMonty.info mailing list has not worked.
I am manually taking the subscribed user list from JoelMonty.info and importing names and emails to the JoelMonty-Info 01 mailing list on Aweber. You will receive a confirmation message from Aweber asking if you want to be added to the list. If you do, please click yes on the link provided for your response. If you don’t want to be on the list, as I understand the process, Aweber will delete names of those not responding to their “opt-in” message.
I need some help in completing some projects in 2014 and expect to be sending emails to subscribers to my multiple websites to encourage their participation.
This is your “heads up” for what I’m doing. (I’m not sharing the list or your names or emails. These are my Aweber lists.)
Thanks for your time.
Consistency and Connection on the Internet–When looking for work (or clients), it is critical that all search engines present the same information to prospective clients and/or employers.
This means lots of going back and forth, checking out the latest updates, and, even worse, having to repeat the information yet again for some prospective employers who require their own applications.
Some of mine were out of date–last updated in 2003 (one), 2011 (a few). All (I hope) now reflect basically the same information. Job-Search-related email are all being sent to the same address (Joel@JoelMontgomery.net). I also steer everyone to my executive website, http://www.JoelMontgomery.net.
Now let’s see what shows up.
Have you ever had to follow some directions–like learning dance steps–forward 2, back 3, side step 1, forward 2, reverse side step 3, etc.
I’m finding that to be the case with some of the activities I’m engaged in this week, building infrastructure to support my online business set-ups. (The results are similar to the classic, “You can’t get there from here” quote when someone asks directions to some place.)
I have lots of tools to move very quickly–and still in circles. A friend of mind just told me, “Contact me when you’ve done all you have to do.” (I didn’t find the comment particularly helpful and it probably makes sense from my friend’s perspective.)
I did sign-up for an affiliate program today that I think will be helpful. It offers free services to help people with online emailing and communication. I’ll share more about that (and a link) later. That will be part of JoelMontyLoves.com.
If you know of anyone interested in exploring how to build an effective team for multi-level-marketing (MLM), have them check out the video in the previous post. If anyone is actively looking to build such a team, follow this link for help in generating leads for team members.
I was busy today getting a new Page and App up on Facebook. There’s more work to do and they’re both initially published. I’ll get them up to speed as part of an ongoing project to get people involved with me in case studies and workshops leading to “Empowerment to Improve the Quality of Your Life”
It’s amazing how long the little things take to do.
Today was interesting. I redid one blog to put all squeeze pages in a separate folder. That worked well so for. I redid a video and have only one format though one is housed on Amazon S3 and the other on YouTube.
At 11:30 I met with the Chaplain at Delnor Hospital about a new service project I’m starting next Friday (July 4th). It should be very interesting.
At 2:00PM I got on a “Go-to-Meeting” Webinar (that must have started earlier) and learned about some software that helps generate traffic. I need to do that both for my own sites and when I’m working with the network program, so I took advantage of the offers on the webinar. Now I need to generate some content and to see some revenues comeing in in the next 7 days. I have the vehicles in place to take payments, now I need to see if I get the right kind and quality of traffic coming to those sites.
A big conference started today in Charlotte, NC, and runs through Sunday. I spend quality time with my 99-year-old Mom every evening and couldn’t do that from Charlotte. The video will be great and I may be able to catch some online programming from the conference.
My near-term priorities are to get as much automation as I can to help me generate traffic-producing content, then to take some time to consolidate my storage units and reduce my storage fees. One of my first goals for the new Internet systems is to generate rent for my apartment, for my storage units, and for all my Internet expenses. A second short-term goal is to pull together the investment required to make the network offer both realistic and powerful. We’ll see how much I can get done over the weekend.
Yesterday was invested in setting-up a new blog site (actually a four-piece blog site), creating a product package for the site and a series of sales funnel for the site. Developing the products will take some time, too.
I was hoping to begin generating “instant sales” and that isn’t going to happen. Internet Information Marketing still seems to be the best way to generate significant income for the foreseeable future.
I had my first website on the Internet up about 1988. I was using it as a platform to sell my consulting services. I’ve been involved with the Internet and Information Marketing (“Infopreneurship”) since that time. I became the protege of a “guru” of information marketing in 2001. Through that connection I started working with a very successful team of internet information marketers in 2011 and used their knowledge and skill (and programs) to develop multiple blogging websites in 2011 and 2012. I stopped active working of those sites when I went back to teaching. This summer I picked things back up–getting all the website infrastructure up to date, then working on content.
At the same time, a new friend from LinkedIn shared with me the successes she and several of her friends have had with someone else’s system and products on the Internet. What I’ve been doing hasn’t worked to grow my income so far, so working with someone else’s successful system sounds good to me.
I’ve been involved in Network Marketing over the years–starting with Amway, then moving to a variety of other organizations. I never made any money with any of them.
One of the attractive things about the company my friend introduced me to is that they use Internet tools and systems to sell over the Internet. I don’t have to involve family and friends (again).
There is a significant “buy in” recommended (though nothing is required). To make powerful amounts of money quickly, a person needs to “buy in” to the products and to start using them to grow his or her business. That’s basically a very good idea. I’m going to have to use my existing resources to generate the capital I to make the “buy in” for the new company.
That gave me even more incentive to leverage my existing sites as income producers as well.
As you can tell, I was pretty frustrated yesterday when I wrote the post about things being ridiculous.
Today I received an email from a new friend, Brittney Poppano, who invited me to see a replay of a presentation she shared last night. Her presentation put me in touch with a company that has a system for building an Internet Information Marketing business. I’ve been involved with that since the 1980s, though haven’t made any money.
With this new organization, my entire financial situation can be turned around in less than a month, though it will take longer to build a good business.
I’m an Advanced Practitioner in the Law of Abundance-Wealth. While my earlier post may not seem so, I’ve been working on myself for the past several months, replacing my dis-empowering habits of thought and action with empowering habits of thought and action. This result is one of the indicators that things are working well.
I spoke today with Ian Watson, Bluehost’s new “Web Coach” for my account (https://JoelMonty.net).
Thanks to our conversation and his legwork on the other end, all of my sites on Bluehost are now on a new (and more robust) server, under a single IP address for JoelMonty.net.
This is supposed to be a significant upgrade in the responsiveness of my websites and your ability to access them. The transition between servers is probably complete by now, though I haven’t received an email yet confirming that. This is the first time I’ve tried to access one of my sites since we made the upgrade (around 2:00PM CDT).
Ian will be working with me in checking how well used my websites are. My goal this summer is to do two things–eliminate websites that aren’t being used and monetize the sites–it would make sense for the websites to pay for their own upkeep.
Beyond that, my goal for my websites is for them to be of value and to generate residual income to help me be able to do the things I want to do in terms of service, making a contribution–and paying rent, being debt-free, etc.
More about that in another post.
I have too many websites and will be winnowing them down. My original goal, in addition to sharing and reaching out to multiple target groups, was to monetize the sites at least enough to pay for their maintenance and upkeep. With 37, I don’t get to them fast enough to keep them interesting.
I’ve had to upgrade WordPress and plugins and themes on all of them and have taken the time to see how many have people signing-up. I’ve already taken a few down that weren’t being used much.
As part of this system, each website has three components–a primary website (like this one), a mobile website (though I don’t have that for JoelMonty.info), and a website dedicated to Facebook–to be a Facebook Fan page. This also means that I need to keep multiple Facebook pages up to date. I am working on several, though a much more manageable number.
The idea was (and is) a good one–reach people wherever they are and however they connect.
