Next Thursday, March 8th, we’ll be doing the second session in a series of free live training & live ‘case study’ webinars. The first session, held last week, was terrific – and all the feedback so far has been incredibly positive!
Now we’re ready for session #2. Join Adam and me for another extraordinary live training session covering content creation, outsourcing, and optimization.
Over the course of this live training series, we’ll be building a real site from scratch, all the way through building traffic & rankings, generating revenues, then flipping the site – going over each step as part of the training.
In this session, we’ll be going over content – where to find content you can use, how to create it yourself, ways to spin it, how & where to outsource it, and exactly how to optimize it; we’ll cover the post-Panda ‘New Rules’ of content, and show you how to get excellent content outsourced very inexpensively.
Over the remaining sessions, we’ll be going over the site launch – how to set up & optimally configure our blog including plugins, and how to do on-page optimization; ranking – the post-Panda ‘New Rules’ of building backlinks; other traffic – how & where to get non-search free traffic; finally flipping – creating a listing and flipping the site.
While based on the tested and proven “$100k Blueprint” methods, we’ll go beyond the context of the courses, insuring you’ll learn how to ‘do content’ right for whatever business models you pursue.
And of course, this will all be up-to-the-minute, post-Panda methods and tactics…
We will also spend a few minutes going over the recent Google announcements & changes – what you need to know about them, how they effect you, and what you should – or shouldn’t – be doing.
Did we mention, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions during the event…!
There are only a limited number of spots, and the first session filled up quickly, so don’t wait – sign up and secure your place now!

Excellent Free Resource
If you weren’t aware yet, we’ve decided to combine the resource listings from our courses into one larger resource listing, put it online so we can keep them current & updated – and add new resources continually – and make it available to all.
Check out our “$100k Resources” blog at: http://100kResources.com
We’ll be adding new resources & content pretty regularly, and intend to build it into the very best, most comprehensive free internet marketing resources listing on the web.
New Google Updates
On Monday, 2/27, Google confirmed a new Panda run, and announced 40 algorithm changes. You can read the official announcement here: http://insidesearch.blogspot.com/2012/02/search-quality-highlights-40-changes.html
There’s a LOT of things going on in these updates, and we will be doing a post specifically to summarize the new changes & updates.
Among the notable and more significant areas being tweaked are evaluation of backlinks, ‘freshness’, local search results, how Google detects ‘official’ and original pages, it’s index of images, and more local relevance for Youtube results.
Panda, which is a separate, additional set of calculations performed on the search index, was run on 2/27 as well. Panda looks at a wide range of metrics including content quality, backlinks profile, and ‘user experience’ factors such as load time, ‘time on site’, and ‘bounce rate’, and determines a ‘ranking adjustment factor’ that is applied to a site outside of the ‘regular’ ranking algorithm. This means that however your pages are ranking, Panda may push entire sites up or down. And because Panda is run periodically (3-8 weeks between runs), unlike the ‘regular’ search algorithm which ranks pages in real-time, it’s effects will ‘stay’ until the next Panda run. This means if your site is hit, you’ll have to figure out why, adjust accordingly, and wait until the next run for any Panda-related re-adjustments to happen.
Not only is Panda is here to stay, it’s really the ‘beginning’ of broad and profound changes affecting search, social, and nearly every area of the internet. “Reference $100k Blueprint” which will be available to you very shortly, goes into what this all means, what to do in order to stay in front of the curve, and very specifically how to succeed in Internet Marketing going forward.
So much is happening in our industry; we’re experiencing the shift from “Internet Marketing 1.0″ to “Internet Marketing 2.0″. We now have to take into account profound changes in how our sites perform in the search engines, the growning significance and importance of Social Media and Social Networking, and the rapidly-growing prevalence of a mobile internet.
If you aren’t creating videos, well – at this point, I don’t even know what to say to you! Video should have already become a crucial part of every internet marketer’s arsenal. But with the massively growing adoption of mobile & social, it’s actually become waaaay more important!
One problem we hear often is, I don’t know how to make videos, I can’t make decent videos, and similar reasons for avoiding it.
Animoto is an amazingly slick service that produces great, stylish videos by itself! You simply upload some images – which could be Powerpoint slides, text images, or anything else – pick from it’s library of background soundtracks, and it automatically creates really slick videos! You can sign up and create 30 second videos for free, while unlimited-length videos are just $5/month, or $30/yr!
You simply have to see it to appreciate it. Check out the demos, see how ridiculously easy it is, and at the very least, sign yourself up for a free account. If you do nothing else, create those free 30-second videos for your sites – they’re increasingly important for getting & staying ranked, and give you a huge ‘multimedia’ and original content benefit. Not to mention, you then have excellent, original content to syndicate.
Video Tip: Did you know you can upload transcripts of your videos on Youtube? This gives you tremendous SEO benefits when someone is searching on Youtube. You can find plenty of Fiverr gigs to create text file transcripts of videos…
How To Be Successful
We mentioned recently a new membership we’re launching in March: “$100k Success!” This will be a separate, private monthly membership, and what we have put together as the very best way to insure your success. We’ve taken everything we’ve learned from your feedback, the comments on our forum, and everything we know about building a successful internet marketing business – and we know quite a bit about that! – and looked at the ‘missing pieces’.
Based on this feedback and a LOT of experience working with internet marketers, we know that virtually anyone can be successful if we could teach them “the biz”, somehow show them precisely what to do, how to do it, and answer the questions that come along the way. That’s what this membership is all about.
It will include:
- Weekly live training sessions
- Weekly live ‘Mastermind’ groups
- Weekly ‘Success Plans’ – best practices, new opportunities, ‘cheat sheets’, tips, blueprints
- Live ‘case studies’ and site reviews
- Free $100k Blueprint forum access
- Additional free resources
- Permanent discount on all current & future $100k Blueprint products.
We sincerely believe that this membership is as close to a guarantee of success as can be had. If you’re willing to apply yourself, you’ll get the info, training, and support you need here.
Membership will be priced at $49.95 after the launch, but is being offered to you at a discount of just $24.95/month.
This is a pre-launch discount for you, as we’ve done with all our other products. Due to demand – about 100 emails asking to sign up – we’ve put up a preliminary sales page & ‘buy’ button so you can now actually sign up.
If you sign up, you’ll be getting the $24.95 price forever. You’ll get a ‘Welcome’ email next week – before the upcoming training session – with the new membership training (separate from this free training series) beginning the week of March 12th. All of the membership features will become available that week.

Once again, I’d like to thank all of you for your support, and hope to ‘see’ you on the next training session!
