The purpose of this manual is to give you some tips and best-kept secrets to help you get started in promoting yourself, your product or your opportunity on the Internet. This is not going to be a long and drawn out manual. This is meant to be an action guide! I do not want to have you reading a book for days and feeling like you never get to get started. There will be more books and guides coming out in the future and they are already in the works. Many of them will be provided at no cost to my website visitors. The Internet is Full of Failures Now that is kind of a harsh thing to say, huh? Well, it is true. About 97% of the people who set out to make money online end up failing. I’m here to tell you that number is way too high. But, here is why it is :

• Attitude : Many of us have been conditioned that we are to work a traditional job and that if we go out and try anything different we will fail. Furthermore, our education programs are not geared towards making money in this way. • Cost : Many businesses have a high startup cost and people are not willing to invest the cost to get started. This is even more of a concern in harsh economic times • Fear : Making money online is still untraditional. Therefore, there is an unknown element there that many people fear, and it is more compounded by people telling you that it will not work.

But, here is the real killer: • Many people out there are misleading new Internet marketers with their empty and meaningless ebooks, all for the sake of making a buck • You have the mindset of chasing people to buy something from you. • The quality information is being withheld out of fear that a person’s source of income will be with held. My aim is to start providing you with some of this information coveted by that 3% and begin pushing you towards your goal of making online.

MySpace Marketing MySpace is one of the top 10 most visited sites according to Alexa and Quantcast. It receives over 70 million unique visitors per month with over 4 billion page views. That’s a lot of zeroes people, and you really need to be taking advantage of that. A common misconception is that MySpace is only for teenagers. While they do make up a large part of their demographic, it is not the biggest. The 18-34 age bracket actually comprises over 44% of their user base. In fact, well over half the user base comprises the 18-34+ demographic. I have a video on my YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/profitmachinepro detailing the demographics of MySpace. I would recommend the first thing you do is setup a MySpace profile if you do not already have one. But, here is the trick: don’t advertise. “Wait a minute,” you may be thinking . How am I supposed to use this awesome power of marketing if I do not advertise my opportunity. Well, the thing is that people on MySpace are tired of these digital billboards and largely ignore them. Or, worse, they report them as SPAM. That means if you are doing that, your profile gets shut down. I am not saying you cannot mention your opportunity or service. Just do not make your profile one big page full of banners, glittering text and annoying sales pitches. People on MySpace want to connect with a person, not a business. They want to know that they are investing time in building a relationship with someone, even if it is on a professional level. This is the heart of social networking on any site.

Put your picture in your profile – This is huge. I do not know how many profiles I have seen with a business logo or a picture of their dog on there. This is psychological for people and it will help you immensely Do not make empty promises to people by visiting your page. Do not tell people they will make millions if they join you Create a headline that welcomes people to your page – Make them feel welcome there and let them into who you are. Feel free to explain that you are a business and provide a link to your site. Remember though, do not make it a bill board Spend time telling people your story, your interests, your hobbies, etc. There are places for that and make sure you use them. It gives your visitors an insight into what makes you tick. And it may can provide common ground for someone to feel more comfortable in dealing with you. Do not try to sell on your page.

Getting Videos To YouTube

First lets discuss capturing the video. There are several possibilities for this: 1. 2. 3. 4.

A video camera that gives you the ability to transfer video to your computer A Webcam connected to your PC A Cell phone with video capture capabilities A digital camera that has video capture capabilities

Once you have made your recording, you need to get it to your computer to edit prior to uploading. You will want to make sure the size of your video is less than 100 MB or it will be rejected by YouTube. It is recommended to compress the video to around 10MB if possible though. Many newer computers have video editing software preinstalled that make this possible. If you would like to see some examples of my videos and my channel, then please visit it at http://www.youtube.com/profitmachinepro

Again, I have some other killer secrets to share about content. All you have to do is take the initiative and contact me. You can contact me at any of the methods at the bottom of each page

Views Are The Key

Obviously, to fully utilize the power of YouTube, you need to get eyeballs on your videos. It doesn’t do you any good to upload all those great videos to YouTube if no one sees them. But, once you get people watching those videos you will have a powerful marketing machine that will brand you 24 hours a day.
