Social Media and Affiliate Marketing for Small Business

Check out this London event on Social-Media and Affiliate-Marketing for Small Business.

If you are launching or growing a business, you simply must learn about two massive trends that have stacked the odds in the favour of small business (finally!).

By far one of the biggest Game-Changing trends on the planet at the moment is Social-Media. For the first time ever, global media is in the hands of the many rather than just a few very powerful people.

Today (and everyday) over 200M people created blogs, videos, podcasts, messages and other media presentations for the world to share.

This is big news for small business. It is not just the "Net-nerds" anymore, EVERYONE is using the internet to find the best products and services they want.

So what are you saying about yourself online? What are other people saying about you?... and can you reward people who take your product to market?

Affiliate Marketing is the biggest trend in the Marketing World. Why? because you only pay your marketing bill AFTER a sale is made. How could it get better than that!

With the right systems in place you can get people talking about your products and only pay for results.

So back to this event... It is run by Daniel Priestley, who 2 years ago came to the UK with a suitcase and a credit card and built a national business without a single hard cost ad. He built the whole thing through the power of Affiliate Marketing and Social Media.

He is an excellent speaker and I recommend this event Social Media Meets Affiliate Marketing.

Social Media Training to Grow Your Business

Just over two years ago Daniel Priestely arrived in the UK with nothing more than a suitcase and a credit card. He knew less than 3 people in the whole of the UK!

Today he is one of the most talked about young entrepreneurs I know of.

The reason people talk is because he built a successful company without taking out any ads in the paper, he used no radio, no fliers and no television. In fact, he built a national business without any hard cost marketing at all.

He used two very powerful tools:
1. He pioneered some cutting edge affiliate marketing systems.
2. He became an expert in Social Media (Facebook, YouTube, Blogs, Online Networking, Etc).

With these two tools he was able to scale up very quickly. What's more, he did this before the trend really got going... as it is right now!

This year, is the year where YOUR clients are spending more time online than ever before. YOUR clients want to read about you on blogs, they want to hear about you through podcasts, they want to see your videos, they want to connect with you on Facebook and follow your Twitter.

If your not doing these things you are missing serious opportunities and you are behind the times.

If you are already doing these things then I can assure you that you could still learn some great strategies from Daniel Priestley.

I strongly suggest you attend this half day training with Daniel Priestley and get your business moving online:

Some Days it is just not worth getting out of Bed

A man went to the hospital to have his wedding ring cut off from his willy.

According to the attending Nurse, the girl friend found the ring in his pants pocket and she got so mad at him, she used petroleum jelly to slip the ring on his willy while he was asleep.

He couldn't figure out what is worse:

1) Having your girl friend find out you're married.
2) Explaining to your wife how your wedding ring got on your willy.
3) Or finding out your willy fits through your Wedding Ring !

$75 Billion Annual Cost of the Conflict in Iraq

I was struck by this page in Losing My Virginity: The Autobiography of Sir Richard Branson published in 2007, p461.

The Pentagon suggested that the cost of the conflict in Iraq would by approximately $75 billion per year over ten years. In accepting the Nirwano Peace Prize on 8 May 2003, Dr Priscilla Elsworthy of the Oxford Research Group said,

"We must compare this $75 billion to the costs of building international security in other ways.

(a) In the year 2000 world leaders estimated that it would require $25 billion to $35 billion annually to raise levels of health and welfare in Africa to Western standards.

(b) Unesco estimate that all the world's children could be educated if we were to spend $7 billion per year for ten years.

(c) Clear water and sanitation could be provided for everyone in the world for $9 billion annually.

(d) HIV and Aids now claim 5,500 lives a day around the world - more than the Black Death, and twelve million in children in Africa have been orphaned by the disease.. Kofi Annan has called for $10 billion annually to address the Aids epidemic.
So, all these goals could be reached, all this suffering prevented worldwide for less than the United States spends on military action in Iraq."
