It amazes me on how many people just "don't get it" when it comes to following up with potential customers. Did you know that it can take up to 7 times contacting someone before they purchase a product - it's true! But again, there are a growing number of people out there that are trying to make sales without doing something as simple as setting their marketing on auto-pilot. Thankfully there's an online service that provides anyone with the kind of marketing system they need that can almost guarantee success. And one that I can whole-heartedly recommend! GetResponse.com is one of the most recognized follow-up systems on the Internet; and there's good reason. GetResponse.com uses some of the fastest and most reliable email servers available. This, combined with more specialized features that any other autoresponder, is it any wonder everyone raves about it? But... despite how good GetResponse.com is, it just got better! That's right, the new GetResponse has just been launched and it has an incredible number of powerfully new features. Just take a look at what you get with GetResponse! - Personalization of emails - Unlimited follow-ups - Complete import and export features - Send a broadcast email to your entire list all in one shot - Attach files to any or all of your autoresponses - Track your leads and responses - Your choice of 19 different domains names to send from - Send HTML-enhanced messages - Your own "confirmation" screen - Selective broadcasting - Block unwanted email addresses - Bounce-back management - Full activity reports via email - Free, unlimited technical support - much, much more! As you can see, this is way more than your everyday run-of- the-mill autoresponder systems - using any other just doesn't make good business sense! So what are you waiting for? You owe it to yourself and your online business to at least take a look at what GetResponse.com can do for you. Get Response
I believe the Get Rich systems, big JV deals and resale rights products are on their way out.
Sure each one had its place and made somebody money but the rest of us are getting tired of supporting their laziness. Thats about what it is. None of the systems or products really worked for everybody. They can’t! Everybody has a different different system with different software, some thing will work with this and not with that. To make this work you need to buy that or join this…….Come on! I believe in paying for quality and giving the creator their due but it has gotten where nothing works because of the rush to launch and see what we can make off this before it crashes. Laziness and greed. And JV deals! Giving away a load of crap to all of your friends lists in hopes of a backend sale? Don’t expect these to last much longer, most lists have been tapped out already. Maybe with more quality and less quantity JV’s will still work, but for how long?
I still think most marketers are still trying to help the less fortunate …… the buzz words of marketing ….. “have a duplicable system and help others learn it” . Good in theory, but if you are an internet marketer, is it working for you? How many of the gurus have set down with you and helped you understand and use their newest system? None I bet unless they were trying to sell you the rest of what you need……………How many have you actually figured out yourself?
Face it people these “systems” and fancy multi level pay plans are going to be more work to succeed at than you coming up with your own product, building your own web site, planing and implicating your own SEO and traffic plan
So why are we chasing these hypes and lies? Laziness and greed.
Do we as marketers want to continue this way?
I can only speak for myself but I say stop the bull…….!!!
We can stop hype! We can stop the lies! We can stop Spam!
But we each have to work at it. The opposite of laziness and greed.
I want to make it clear that I am not the author of this article. I forgot the blog says I am when I post unless I change it.
Thank You Charles & Susan Truet for sharing this with us.
We don’t use E-gold very often since most of our online business and customer sales are conducted through our online merchant account. However, we occasionally have someone who will request paying by E-gold so we keep an account there for this reason. Once a month or so we withdraw the funds and decided to do so yesterday. Imagine our dismay when we logged into our E-gold account yesterday and found our balance to be a big fat ZERO! We had checked the balance just a few days ago so we knew this was not correct. After investigating the history of the account, we found that a spend had been made to another e-gold account user WITHOUT our knowledge or authorization. We had been hacked!
Since we have up to date anti-virus and firewall software on our computer, we assumed we were safe. Not so! It seems this is not enough to keep away the hackers as the software does not prevent “Spyware” from being installed on your computer.
Spyware gets on your computer in one of several different ways.
First, it rides along with software you download from the ‘Net and install on your system.
Second, they come as email attachments (much like viruses) and automatically install themselves on your computer when you open the email message.
Third, hackers find an open port on your computer and use the “back door” to install basically anything they want.
And fourth, the more malicious types, like keystroke loggers, can even get installed by someone with direct physical access to your computer such as an employer, suspicious spouse, business competitor, or someone who wants to know exactly what you’re doing.
So how do you protect yourself against these malicious hackers? You need a program that specifically scans your system for the tens-of-thousands of existing spyware programs along with the new ones appearing daily.
Below are two programs which specifically check for and remove spyware from your system:
“Spybot Search & Destroy” – www.safer-networking.org
“Ad Aware” – www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware/
You may have spyware lurking on your computer right now so protect yourself today by downloading one of the above programs!
As a point of reference, we contacted E-gold and informed them that we had been hacked. We provided them with the account number of the person who received the funds and asked for a contact e-mail address on the person. E-gold informed us that they could not provide that information without a “court order” and that basically there was no way of getting the money back!
Take action today to protect yourself from this growing threat! The bottom line is: – Keep your anti-virus program current
- Install a firewall
- Carefully screen software before installing it
- Scan specifically for spyware weekly
- Stay current on this growing threat.
