My name is Darren Doud, I am an Internet Marketer, trying to go full time. I am an IT guy during the day and a High School football coach by night. I want to go full time in IM so I can focus more time on my family and football. I love doing IM and love to help people succeed in the IM industry.

I got into Online Home Based Business in 2013. I got into it because I knew there was a better way of making a living. There had to be a way to gain my time back. I am slowly seeing how I can accomplish this by being in a Online Home Based Business.

MOBE is short for My Online Business Empire and it’s online business that was developed by our friend Matt Lloyd.  It’s a high ticket affiliate sales program with built in traffic coaches, mentoring, sales teams, phone team, and MUCH more. You can earn 1k, 3k, 5k commissions with MOBE . It’s a revolutionary way of building a business online through the licensing model and duplication model – similar to a franchise model, you acquire the license to run the business which you then only need to duplicate success of other successful business owners by following the exact 21 steps system laid out in your training area. We’re so excited to have found MOBE and are looking for people to partner with us.

 MOBE

Benefits of My Top Tier Business:

  • Personal one-on-one coaching from one of the Top-Tier Business coaches (all who make 6 figures + a year).
  • A dedicated phone team to follow up and call your leads handling the selling for you.
  • Information products to show you exactly what you should be doing step by step to produce results.
  • A fully automated sales funnel- – – You just need to drive traffic!
  • Sell just 5 MOBE licenses a month and get a Mercedes paid for YOU!

The one thing I’ve seen over the years working with my coaching students and building my own online businesses is the fact that so many people struggle to make this business work.

The fact is it actually isn’t that hard, but……most people just don’t know where to start and end up suffering from information overload.

83 Exceptional Social Media and Marketing Statistics in 2014

83 Exceptional Social Media and Marketing Statistics in 2014

Big data” is one of the trendiest buzzwordy terms in marketing/technology/business today.

So before it gets replaced by the next trendy buzzwordy term, here’s some marketing-related big data for you: 83 valuable facts, stats, and research findings covering strategy, social media, SEO, online advertising, email marketing, content, blogging, social networking, video and more.               B2B-content-creation 

What do 40% of B2B buyers say about LinkedIn, that only 19% say about Twitter? Which “social” brands aren’t really social at all? What do only 48% of searches result in? What do 91% of B2B marketers do, but only 36% do well? (No, not that.) What do 73% of reporters say press releases should contain?

Find the answers to those questions and many, many more here in more than 80 social, content, search, and email marketing facts and statistics from the past few months.
4 Marketing Management and Measurement Stats

1. Just 35% of B2B marketing executives say they can calculate the ROI of their marketing spend most or all of the time. 42% say they can calculate ROI only some of the time, rarely or not at all. (B2B Marketing)

2. While two out of three U.S. CMOs say they feel pressure from the top to prove the value of marketing, just 51% of CEOs agree “that marketing’s financial value is clear to the business.” (MarketingCharts)

3. That’s likely because only 45% of CMOs are confident “that they know which metrics or business outcomes their key stakeholders care about.” (MarketingCharts)

4. “Data analytics are currently most commonly used by B2B marketing leaders to measure and report marketing’s performance (64%), as well as to justify (55%) and allocate (52%) the marketing budget. Analytics are least commonly used to fine-tune the marketing mix (14%).” (MarketingCharts)
4 B2B Marketing Stats

5. Consumerization of B2B marketing? 57% of B2B vendors say they are shifting their B2B commerce transactions from offline to online and self-service, and 44% agree “that B2B commerce is adopting B2C best practices in order to optimize the purchasing experience.” (MarketingCharts)

6. Online sales currently account for about 35% of total revenue for B2B vendors, though that’s higher (41%) among US companies. (MarketingCharts)

7. 40% of B2B buyers say LinkedIn is important when researching technologies and services to purchase; 19% say the same for Twitter. (Social Media Today)

8. B2B buyers today are 70%-90% of the way through their “buying journey” before they reach out to a vendor. (B2B Marketing)

6 Social Media Marketing Stats

9. Social media marketing budgets are projected to double in the next five years. (SocialTimes)

10. The top three social networks used by B2B marketers are LinkedIn (91%); Twitter (85%); and Facebook (81%). However, just 62% of marketers say that LinkedIn is effective, while 50% say the same for Twitter and only 30% of B2B marketers view Facebook as effective. (FlipCreator)

11. This one may surprise you: Google+ actually averages more visits per month than Facebook. Google+ receives 1.2 billion visits per month compared to Facebook’s 809 million. (iMedia Connection)

12. 83% of B2B marketers invest in social media to increase brand exposure; 69% to increase web traffic; and 65% to gain market insights. (Social Media Today)

13. Some brands perceived as social aren’t—at all. As of 2013, Apple had yet to claim a Twitter account, Facebook page, or any other type of social media presence. Ditto for Trader Joe’s. (iMedia Connection)

14. People spend, on average, 4X more time on Tumblr and Pinterest than they do on Twitter. (iMedia Connection)

 

7 SEO and Search Stats

15. Every month there are more than 10.3 billion Google searches, with 78% of U.S. internet users researching products and services online. (B2B Marketing)

16. 54% of B2B buyers begin their buying process with informal research about business problems; nearly 80% of the time spent researching is done line. (B2B Marketing)

17. 33% of organic search clicks go to the first result. (SocialTimes)

18. The top 4 positions, generally those considered to be “above the fold”, receive 83% of first page organic clicks. (Brent Carnduff)

(However, as noted here previously, “a lower position isn’t always bad. If the searcher clicks the ‘back’ button because the top result didn’t meet expectations, then he or she is 5-8 times more likely to click on a lower result than on the initial search.”)

19. It’s also important to consider that only 48% of searches result in an organic click. The remaining 52% result in either a click on a paid ad, leaving the search engine results page without clicking on any listing, or starting a new search. (Brent Carnduff)

20. In addition, as search intent becomes more detailed or specific (long-tail search phrases), the click distribution across the first page organic listings begins to even out, as searchers look for the best match or answer to their query. (Brent Carnduff)

21. And furthermore, long-tail searches have higher overall organic click-through rates. 56% of searches for phrases of four words or more result in a click on an organic result, compared to just 30% for single-word search queries. (Brent Carnduff)
7 Online Advertising Stats

22. Of the three major types of online advertising (search, display, and social), search is viewed as the best channel for driving direct sales, cited by 40% of marketers (vs. 26% who use display to drive sales and 18% using social). However, just over a third of marketers view each channel as valuable for lead generation. (eMarketer)

23. Landing page optimization is viewed as the most important tactic for optimizing the performance of paid search advertising, while targeting by segment is most important in optimizing display ad performance. (eMarketer)

24. 8% of Internet users account for 85% of online display ad clicks. (iMedia Connection)

25. In 2013, Internet advertising expenditures surpassed newspaper ad spending for the first time. Internet ads now account for 21% of all advertising dollars, second only to television at 40%. (Ad Age)

26. Of the 100 largest global advertisers, 41 are headquartered in the U.S., 36 in Europe, and 23 in Asia. Consumer electronics and technology is the fastest-growing ad category among the Global 100. (Ad Age)

27. The average click-through rate (CTR) for online display ads is 0.11% (roughly one click per one thousand views). CTRs aer highest in Malasia (0.30%) and Singapore (0.19%), and lowest in Australia and the U.K. (both at 0.07%). (Smart Insights)

28. Among different display ad formats, large rectangle ads (336 x 280 pixels) generate the highest CTRs on average at 0.21-0.33%, while full banners (468 x 6) generate the lowest at 0.04%. (Smart Insights)

 

3 Email Marketing Stats

29. Mobile matters. A lot. In 2013, 62% of emails were opened on a mobile device (48% on smartphones and 14% on tablets). (Heidi Cohen)

30. Adding social sharing buttons to email messages an increase click-through rates by more than 150%. (SocialTimes)

33. Still, more than 70% of both B2B and B2C marketers plan to produce more content in 2014 than they did in 2013, and six out of ten plan to increase their content marketing budgets. (e-Strategy Trends)

34. 78% of CMOs believe custom content is the future of marketing. It’s not clear what the other 22% are thinking. (SocialTimes)

35. Customer testimonials are the most effective form of content marketing. (SocialTimes)

36. The top challenge for content marketers is “lack of time,’ according to 57% of B2C and 69% of B2B marketers (multiple responses permitted). (e-Strategy Trends)

5 Proven Self Improvement Steps on How to “Live Your DREAM Life!”

5 Proven Self Improvement Steps on How to “Live Your

DREAM Life!”

 

untitled

 

 

To achieve any type of success in your life you must have the proper mindset. Below is an article written on your first steps in getting you started on your journey.

Before I get into this, it’s important that you simply perceive what self help, personal development and self improvement, actually mean? In a nut shell, it’s exactly what it says on the tin, anything to try and do with improving or developing yourself. As an example, career, relationships, health, psychology, etc.. Self facilitate is largely any type of information, or tools that facilitate your, to help yourself. 

I’ve got a fast query for you... 

Has there ever been a time in your life where you couldn’t sit up for tomorrow to come? or maybe didn’t want to travel to sleep as a result of you was having such a great time? You need to have felt like that a minimum of once in your life, right? I bet you even have a huge smile on your face simply remembering those ‘smart times’… 

But here’s the thing, why can’t each second of every single day be like that, for you, me – ALL OF US?… 

Well truly, it will! However in fact, FIRST, you would like to know how that’s done. However let me tell you something, it’s a lot of easier than you would possibly think… 

Do you believe this is attainable?… 

Perhaps you think that I’m a dreamer, if you are doing, that’s cool! However what if I told you that this situation is strictly what my life is like. Furthermore, what if I told you that my life ‘ought to’ be a ‘misery’, according to some individuals?… 

Well, that’s the fact of it. You see, I have a condition referred to as Multiple Sclerosis(MS), that typically leads to complete debilitation. One amongst the many symptoms are stress and depression. So how then am I ready to measure my DREAM Life!? Well, the answer is simple… 

With good self improvement strategies

I urge you to affix me and make this your reality too. Everybody deserves to live a unprecedented life, and now, with these simple ways, EVERYBODY can. 

If you are at all inquisitive about self improvement or personal development, it’s important to urge ‘1st things FIRST’. In alternative words, start from the bottom up. Image this, imagine I gave you a recipe to create a cake, you wouldn’t begin from step five, would you? Self improvement is no different… 

Therefore, let’s do things properly and begin from the all necessary first step!… 

STEP ONE is the most vital step of all, and it plays the largest part in what we have a tendency to all crave in life – Happiness! Step one isn’t solely the most necessary step, however also the most difficult. This is often the stage were you build your life’s foundational values, but not just any old values, they have to be ROCK SOLID values. 

STEP TWO helps to suit the items to your self improvement puzzle. Basically, you’ve got to ‘recognize’, or have a theory, about what the that means of life is. ‘Knowing’ this, will facilitate your to shape your life. My theory on what life means, is this – “Life is a never ending, ‘roller coaster’ journey of CHOICES and EMOTIONS”. Ultimately, everybody desires to be happy. Onto step three… 

STEP THREE, is to search out, or perceive, what YOUR purpose in life is. Place another method, “what were you place on this planet to do?” Do not worry, this is not as tough or mysterious because it could sound, we all have the right ‘tool’ for doing this – Our EMOTIONS. Yes, it is true, your emotions will be your ally or worst enemy, and typically at the identical time! Thus ask yourself, “What’s it that I really love doing?”. Currently take that a step more and raise yourself, “What FEATURES does my passion have that I really like?”. 

STEP FOUR involves really constructing your DREAM Life. This bit will stretch your self improvement prowess to the limit, but don’t worry, this is very a lot of doable. This step relies on the options you identified in step 3 and one in all the foremost powerful personal development tools around – GOAL SETTING! Try this for each of the different departments of your life. As an example, Health, Wealth, Relationships, etc. All of this comes along and forms your terribly own, personal development plan. And now for the extremely exciting bit… 

STEP FIVE – Live the life you have designed in your personal development plan. In alternative words, live your DREAM Life! 

Naturally, there’s a bit a lot of to it than that, but hopefully you get the general gist of self improvement, and what is required to measure your DREAM Life! 

It simply takes 1 second to choose to vary your life, so when are you going to come to a decision in what to do in the subsequent few seconds? This is your life…just do it…if not now…than when???

 

Make it a great day!!

Discover A Web Traffic Report

Discover A Web Traffic Report

How do you get a web traffic report for your website? There are several free sites and paid services that can help you with this and they vary widely in terms of what they offer and how much they cost. In order to get them up and running, all you need to do is copy a code that they provide you into your website pages, which allows you to keep track of your visitors. 

Some “stat counters” include Google Analytic, Free Stat Counter, Stat Counter, Website Hit Counters, Free Hits Counter, or others. These offer a basic traffic report for either no charge at all (if you don’t mind adding a sponsor to the traffic counter that they place on your website) or for a small fee if you exceed a very large amount of visitors per month. 

You can also hire someone to manage this aspect of your website. An analytic service can give you valuable data about the traffic on your site. Not only how much traffic you get, but where you get it from, how you find it, which pages are being visited, who are repeat visitors, which visitors convert to sales, and more. Either way, many web analytic  services provide very useful web traffic reports with information such as the amount of unique visitors to your site, or breakdowns of traffic by geographic location, pages viewed, referring websites, etc. And many services also offer reports on what terms visitors entered into their search engines, (Google, Yahoo, or MSN Bing), in order to arrive at your site. They can even report on technical information about your site’s visitors, like what browsers or operating systems they are using. This information can be very useful for web designers. 

Certain stat counters go even further, allowing you to really segment your visitors. So, for instance, they may offer reports that analyze only visitors that came from a particular referring site, or only visitors that arrived at your site through a particular advertising campaign, or only those visitors who made purchases. You may even be able to get an in-depth look at how each visitor pages through your site. 

If you have an online business or e-commerce site, you can have your traffic broken down into certain steps, like “who filled out a registration form, who put something in their shopping cart, who got the the checkout page, and who actually paid for the product or service. You can also use an analytic service to track how well your PPC (pay-per-click) ads or doing or how well your email campaigns are going so you can make decisions on which ones to use more often. 

If you go even one step further, you can invest in a web analytic service that not only provides you with the data, but also tells you what to do with it. These types of services not only offer an advanced and detailed web traffic report, but also the coaching and consultation that you might require.

 

Hope you enjoyed this article. Your feedback is important to us….please comment below.

 

Make it a great day!!

In the real world of brick and mortar business, every day millions of people are dragging themselves from their comfortable beds, performing their morning rituals of washing and breakfast to head to their jobs. In their daily grind some are thinking that there must be a better and easier way to make a living.

All these millions know someone or know of someone who has “made it” by quitting their boring existence and become their own boss using their own computers in the comfort and ease of home.

While the idea of working from home sounds like an ideal solution, most are just not preparing. Many of these unhappy people will just quit their jobs and jump right into the first internet marketing business they find with no preparation, no knowledge of what they are doing, no education, and no hope of success. Failure is their only option and they are not even aware of it.

According to many sources, more than 90% (Ninety percent) of all Internet business start-ups end in failure within the first 120 (one hundred twenty) days. And that number is all too accurate: NINETY PERCENT!

This alarming failure rate goes unheeded for a number of reasons:

1. Many don’t know the statistical probabilities they face.
2. Many don’t see themselves as being part of the failures or they wouldn’t leap.
3. Many are talked into things they are unprepared for.
4. Many don’t know the basic tenant of – “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.”

Of course, success is still a possibility. There IS that other 10% (ten percent) that do succeed. For them, success doesn’t happen by accident. And success isn’t just a crap shoot. Success happens because of some very important factors.

Success happens because people learn about internet marketing and how it works. They do not expect to get rich quick or be able to make a killing overnight and retire to a tropical isle.

It is strange but somehow the same people, who wouldn’t dream of starting a real world business, think they can make a go of an internet business even though they have no business background.

People think that an internet business just means that they no longer have to get up and go to work. They think they can simply work when the feel like it and still make a good living. They do not understand that any business requires them to work hard and sometimes work long hours.

Some Wrong Ideas on the Internet

That 90% failure rate of new Internet businesses really is not surprising when you think about the sort of people who start an internet business.

Most people seem to think that being a successful internet marketer is as easy as getting a website built and getting their own domain name and they could not be farther from reality.

Being a successful internet marketer requires self-discipline. People read books like “4 Hour Work Week” and think that partying all night, sleeping until noon and then 3 or 4 hours with a computer will make them rich.

There is not a magic button to push to have instant massive traffic to their million-dollar-like website and fistfuls of cash in their bank. It is just not going to happen.

Internet marketing does not run on auto-pilot. And while established internet marketing types do not put in the long, boring hours they have built their businesses by doing that in the past.

It does not happen overnight for anybody. Most people are not prepared for the time requirement necessary for an internet business to achieve success.

They Do Not Have a Business Background

All businesses whether large or small, Internet or “brick and mortar” have two things in common: they are a BUSINESS and must be operated like a business! Business people must understand accepted business practices.

There are simple and basic concepts like “acceptable over-head expenses in relation to projected income”. All entrepreneurs need to understand profit and loss and what constitutes each.

It is not a requirement to have a college degree in business to be successful but it wouldn’t hurt. On the other hand some basic business knowledge is an absolute necessity.

If it is difficult to balance your check book, then it might be a good idea to keep your day job and forget about being in business.

Yes, you can hire an accounting firm that will tell you WHEN to make tax deposits, but they will not tell you IF you need to make tax deposits.

An accountant can tell you if you made a profit but not how you make it. If you have no business background get some good business advice before you consider opening any business.

The fact is that all successful businesses follow the rules of sound business principles. A successful business is not an accident. The numbers tell the story that only 10% of all new internet businesses are successful or are even still in existence after their first 120 days.

Even the expectation of profit is not reasonable for the first few month.

Have sufficient resources available for everything from startup costs to personal needs for a period of time. It’s called “capital” and there is no alternative to plenty of it.

They Do Not Have The Right Mindset!

Most of us have heard the phrase, “He has an attitude!” And it is often a derogatory remark made about a person with a negative attitude.

The word “attitude” is important when thinking about marketing start-ups. A good attitude or a good mind set will not guarantee success but a bad attitude or a bad mind set can guarantee failure.

Let’s examine a few attitudes that will absolutely guarantee failure:

  1. I can work when I want to. This is absolutely wrong! You cannot just work when it suits you. Expect many long and sometimes boring hours of hard work for your business to succeed.
  2. I can get rich quick! This is a dangerous one. While getting rich quick is possible, there are too many “get rich quick” schemes that are only ways for the unscrupulous to take advantage of the willing. Expect to be wealthy in whatever time it takes. It is possible to make a very comfortable living in internet marketing but it is not usually quick or easy.
  3. I don’t need a business plan. Internet business is still a business. All business principles apply to online business as they do to brick and mortar business. It is imperative that you have a plan for your success based on sound business principles.
  4. Internet business people do not have a boss. You are the boss. A good boss sees that all work is completed on time and in full, or you will fail. Set up a work schedule and goals to meet or you will find yourself working at a job under a boss who does do those things and maybe for minimum wage.

Ways to Avoid Failure

Starting a business … any business … has no guarantee of success, period!

Even large multi-national businesses can fail in a new business venture. Failure is always an option and the possibility or probability of success can be enhanced.

You can increase your possibility of success by:

  1. Making a business plan BEFORE starting your online business. To remind you one of the things I said at the beginning: “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.” A plan for success is a requirement. Have the steps listed in great detail including reasonable cost estimates for completing each step.
  2. Expect to work hard to achieve your goals. Never expect things to be easy. Most of the time things are not as easy as they appear. Each successive step will require its own work, time and patience. Sometimes things don’t go right on the first try. Be willing to keep going again and again until you succeed.
  3. Do not fall for a get-rich-quick schemes. The internet woods are full of those who prey upon those who are looking for quick and easy ways to become rich. Most are ways for the other person to get rich quick from your money.

Remember those statistics! Ninety percent of all new internet businesses fail in the first 120 days. You don’t have to be part of that majority. You can become a part of that 10% minority of successful internet business enterprises. Find something that others are having success with – to the level you want your own success, do what they do, and you will have your own success. Be prepared to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes.
