If Its Good Enough for Sally Count Me In!

featured-IM-strategies

mastermind communityIt may come as no surprise, but the recommendation for the 100 Blog comment challenge came from my friend Sally Neil, she is incredible.

Just like Sally, I am in the 100 Blog Comment Challenge and am looking forward to getting out there and making new friends.

If you want to find out more about this challenge, click on the image above and all will be revealed.

Okay I am back to finish this post off.

I have just finished day one of  a webinar with Chris Farrell in which he explains how to use Facebook to its full potential. There is some killer information in his presentation, of which I have already implemented some.

I am going to write this up and provide you all with a free no strings attached copy for a few days. I will try and get it written by next Friday.

In the meantime if you can I recommend that you attend day 2 of this free event by following this link Chris Farrell – This link will open in a new window.

One quick mindset tip for Facebook, it is only us that calls them fan pages. Facebook call them pages for a reason, they are there for you to use, to help promote your business, here is a great example…Armed Forces Day

Well this post is a bit scatty, but tonight I had scheduled  according to my diary a ‘Night off, get some rest and early to bed’

Great when life throws you a curve ball, always be ready for the opportunities when they arise, because you never know the value in the suprise until you open the box.

Look forward to visiting your blog, once I have had some sleep.

    Good for you Igor, keep to your schedule and get some sleep. 8) The problem with Internet Marketing is that you can do it 24 hours a day, and some people seem to try this. Being fully rested is far more productive than working dog-tired.

      You are of course right, you cannot market when you are dead, or at least you contribute any more.

      I wrote a post about the $100 mints.

      Having tried to get too much done, I was well behind schedule and I forgot to brush my teeth as I rushed of to work.
      No problem a packet of mints would sort that out…I was hyper-sensitive to the ingredients and spent a day in bed recovering.

      Thanks for the reminder John, go at your own pace and look after your self.

    Glad you decided to take Sally’s advise and joint the Challenge, Sally seems to be a lady who really knows how to do things properly in the Internet Marketing world. Another such person is Chris Farrell, I have been a follower of his for some time and he always gives such easy to follow, helpful information. I haven’t watched Chris’s Facebook video’s as yet, I am a bit like you, not enough hours in the day.

    Enjoy the challenge and good luck with your future success.

    I have seen those Facebook fan pages and thought they were pretty cool. I guess it is another type of Web 2.0 bookmarking but with the difference that people can write on your fan page and comment on your posts/status updates. Let us know when you set it up so that we can all become fans and kick it off to a good start.

    Well I am only too happy to help you get to your total of 100 blogs and I know my fellow students will also help.

    A little about me – My name is Sue McDonald and I am a student of Mark Terrell and I am actually going through the course a second time – by invitation. I love it and know if I do all he says, I will be successful. I am Australian but the US is my second home as I have family there and visit quite often. This is why I started Internet Marketing so I can travel whenever I want and have the money to do what I want.

    Well I hope you are doing well and you become very successful. I would love you to come visit my blog and leave a comment.

    Thanks for your post.

    I’m interested in your comment:

    “The best lesson I could give you today…Get a mentor and follow them to the end of the earth, if you are consistent in your actions then you will achieve your goal”

    A number of people have mentioned their own mentors on this thread.

    I’m a strong believer in having a mentor, in fact back in 2006 I met Neil Stafford and Neil Travers. I wasn’t a newbie and I was making money online fulltime since early 2003 but with their heads for business I was able to earn a living in the golf niche and stop jumping from one thing to the next -the classic bright shiny object syndrome!

    Most successful IMers have a number of mentors before they make it full time and we all have different stories – but definitely having a mentor makes a big difference.

    All the best.

      Aargh…okay, as there appears to be a queue waiting for an intro to Facebook, I will write up a post on Monday about the basics, but if you want the full detail you will have to join my mailing list, lol.

    Hi Igor, I look forward to your review of Chris Farrell’s event. He’s got a great attitude and market sense. I just started being active on facebook so I’m hoping to get up to speed soon. Best of luck in the challenge ahead Igor, be well, Steve D.

      Hi Steve, the first Facebook write up was really a journey of discovery and the update which amazingly is already needed will add further detail.

    Hi Igor,

    Great to meet you on the challenge and enjoying my first visit to your blog.

    Facebook does seem to be all the rage at the moment Igor, I haven’t got round to using it much yet. But I am sure if Chris Farrell is working on it I will have to get moving an have a look at his webinars pretty sharp.

    Good luck with the challenge.

    Hi Igor

    Coincidentally I have also got to know about the 100 blog comment challenge from our lovely blog hopping pro Sally :-)

    I am yet to explore facebook and how it works for marketing – only heard of fan pages but still don’t know really where and how it is used … so your report will be a good start …

    And get some rest as you have worked of your pre-planned night-off :-)

    Nice to meet you and welcome to the 100 blog post challenge.

    Cheers!

      Facebooks time really has come for internet marketing or more importantly relationship marketing. The guide is going to be updated and released to my list, so if you want a copy you will have to opt in, as this is guide fits in really well with with my training series.

    Hi Igor,

    I finally got here! I have been blog hopping in my sleep the last week! There have been some amazing blogs that have joined this challenge I have been getting myself sidetracked and stuck reading!

    I did not realise the level of commitment this challenge was going to take. Definite Oops on that one! :oops:

    First I would like to say THANK YOU!!

    THANK YOU for being such am awesome contributor to the challenge. I have been around to everyone’s blogs in the last couple of days to do a rough tally of everyone’s comments and I think you have just about visited everyone!! Absolutely AWESOME!

    I just hope everyone else will do the same. It is up to all the contributors now as to whether this challenge really succeeds for everyone!

    Second I am really curious on learning more about the power of Facebook! Had better put that on my list of things to learn. I will be interested on your results from your studies.

    See you back here soon. I will be back in a couple of days to check on everyone and how their comments are going!

    Hope all is great. And Thank You For Being Awesome!!

    Cheers

    Jacinta :D

      Thanks Jacinta

      I have only just come back from a weeks holiday, so for the 2 days prior to the holiday start, if I was not sleeping I was adding comments to peoples blogs, I did manage to visit all those on the list!

      It has been a great challenge and every one is playing fair, I have noticed the tweets coming in whilst I was on holiday, easy to sneak a peek at a phone, laptops are not quite so discreet!

      Facebook is absolutely massive for business and relationship building, especially at the moment. There are not many of us who really know what we are doing with Facebook for marketing, thus it really is a team effort to make the most of it.

    Hey Igor,

    Awww thanks for the shout out, your so lovely ;)

    Actually took a bit or arm twisting from Jacinta to get me participating but I am really glad I did now.

    I dont really know much about Chris Farell to be honest but if you are giving him the thumbs up I will take a lot.

    I am fast becoming a facebook addict I am going to have to stop going on so much!

    Catch you soon, Your friend, Sally :)

    Igor, I think the month is winding on down and I have so many to visit before the month’s end. It has been great fun reading all of these blogs and many of the comments.

    I never dreamed it was going to be a full time job for a while, but I have learned a a lot as I am sure everyone has.

    Hi Igor,

    Great post. Funny though that some people have posted on my blog thinking you were reaching out to me! It is unusual to have more than one Sally around.

    The other Sally and I have communicated a bit and she is a lovely lady for sure! She was my inspiration to get involved and join the 100 comment challenge and I have to say, even though it can be a bit time consuming it is really fun.

    It’s really insightful to read all the posts and amazing how we are all connected through this challenge.

    Take care and all the best!

    Please let me first congratulate you on your excellent taste, I’m also a student of Alex Jeffreys and a fan of Sally Neil. (LOL)

    I’m looking forward to reading your Facebook guide, I’ve watched bits of Chris Farrells videos and they’re full of info but being totally new to Facebook a little over my head at this stage so hopefully your book will fill in the gaps.

    Enjoy the challenge

      Taking a diversion to scratch an itch is a great way to make progress, I knew there was more to Facebook, but had always put off the investigation. I am glad that I spent the time off track looking into Facebook as I have now made friends with Jo Barnes, who has a fanstastic Facebook Page creator.

    It seems that a lot of people are talking about it lately. Shoemoney and two other guys released a product on it recently.

Ive seen a lot more FB products coming out recently promoted by the Guru’s and its clearly a hot market. I’ve actually invested in a couple so will be posting some updates and techniques on my blog as and when I learn from them.All the best

      Chris’ FB webinar was fantastic, his enthusiasm for the subject and the obvious learning that he was getting alongside us, made the entire experience valuable and inspiring. Look forward to your Facebook updates, still getting into a routine with updating my presences.

    Igor, You have double photos on the comments. Take a look at Barry Wells blog, he has a video showing how to correct it. 8) Hope this helps.

    What an excellent and practical post on facebook fan page. I must say this is another great idea in getting traffic through facebbook. I believe this is another way of getting more visitors effectively. Its amazing how much you can learn from visiting and reading other peoples blogs and the lessons they impart.

    The key to Facebook is your imagination, release the inner child because everything is possible. Its our boring adult self control that holds us back.
