There’s a popular notion these days that YouTube videos can increase your WAHM rankings on google and others sites. While I haven’t done a lot of marketing on YouTube, which I should, I do think it can increase your ranking. Why? YouTube is a really popular site where, if you use a lot of really good keywords and your content is good content, you can get thousands of views on your videos. While you can’t use it for direct SPAM, you can add value to your products by doing reviews for them on YouTube which can help your site popularity.
At the webinar last night Mark Harbert discussed how releasing videos can increase your ranking on google and I really think he’s right. The problem I see is that people are so nervous about their videos that they never even try. I’m an example of this. Recently I chipped a bottom tooth and I have to go get it fixed. Even though there is a tooth, it looks like it’s not there so I’m just way too nervous to even try. I know, it’s a really lame excuse that I need to get over or go get it fixed. To get it fixed I need to make the money. To make the money I need to make the video. Vicious cycle, isn’t it?
So, I’m going to start making videos and with the motivational posts on MLSP and other sites I’m going to get this together. There is no reason why I shouldn’t be making what I make per year in a month. There is no reason at all. That IS my goal is to make what I make in a month what I make in a year. I know it sounds crazy to some, but I know I can do it and you can too.
I think there are two big secrets of being successful with YouTube videos. One of these big secrets is to not give up. Make 1 or 2 per day and be persistent. This shouldn’t be difficult because YouTube even has a flash video recorder builtin to it and I can also make videos with my cell phone or netbook when I’m on the road. Easy! The other no brainer is that in order for people to see my videos I need to make sure my descriptions actually content in them. So many people forget this step and I think that’s why their videos aren’t seen. The more real information related to my video that I put in the description and tags, the more people will show up to see it. I’m not looking to make the most popular and funniest video on YouTube that gets millions of hits, but I am looking to make a video that can help other people. It might not get as many hits as the laughing baby or dog humping the neighbor’s leg, but it will get me moving in my business.
There’s a really great video program on MLSP that I do plan to purchase soon and then I’ll be able to tell you all about it. Until then, watch out for my great videos on YouTube *wink*.
Well, I’m not sure if this is the “latest craze”, but video marketing has become that latest buzz word for Internet marketing. There are so many people using sites like YouTube to kick off their product launches that a lot of people are trying to learn just how it works. Unfortunately, many people are simply too scared to do it for various different reasons.
If you’re afraid of video marketing, be afraid no more. Your WHY should be more important than your fear. If your reason is more important than showing your face on a video then marketing your online product with youtube or vimeo can really make your business soar.
Don’t be afraid any longer. If you’ve been wondering about video marketing and how it all works then this free webinar is for you. You’ll learn how to use YouTube to get leads and customers. So many people are afraid of doing this and this webinar will help you to not be so afraid of success.
ANYONE can be a youtube master–including you!

I was blogging from the machine in my office, but I got tired of being cramped up in that little space all day long that I put it off for a few days. Now I’m back. Although it’s not an ideal situation, I have my little HP netbook back from my son because his girlfriend gave him a laptop for his birthday. Who does that?
Anyway, the machine is small. Luckily, I have small hands. It is in relatively good shape for being used by a kid for at least a year considering he had already broken its screen and another netbook’s screen. At the time, this one was under a 3-year extended warranty.
Honestly, I’d rather have a MacBook Air or a large Droid with a keyboard. I’m tired of Windows. I only want to use windows for gaming except that my Adobe suite is no on Windows and I will probably need to repurchase it if I switch. Life goes on.
The good thing is that I can blog outside just how I like to. I really enjoy going out on a cool morning and blogging as I sip a nice French roast coffee. Yum. My thoughts are best at that time. If I get up early then it’s the best time for me to test a product. If I stay up late because I went to bed late, then it’s the best time then. The worst time is like right now when the kids are home and the dogs are barking.
When is your favorite time to blog or work in your WAHM home business?
I just found out today that Shoemoney has put my t-shirt on his free shirt Friday promo and he says that he is a reader of my site. Well, I am honored and very excited about that!
I loved the comments by the readers. According to the commenters I look like a 60′s lady who may or may not be a female. LOL Thanks guys *wink* that is wonderful of you to say. I can guarantee to you that I have been running my site since 2001 and that I am VERY female and a Mom.
Listen, the mom’s of today have been working in the Internet industry and running home businesses for awhile now. It’s time that we start getting recognized as money making home business owners just as much as the guys. I’ve been working in computers and high tech since 1986 when I started working at Broderbund Sotware. Hmm… I think it was ’86. I’m listed on a couple of the “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego” 5.25 disk packets and on a few of the other games. I think I’m even on the Nintendo NES game “Dark Towers”, although I could be wrong about being on the packaging.
I’ve worked at Apple, Maxis, and a few other companies that you may not know about. I worked for the NFL’s ATI (before they did work for the NFL) and now I’m a home business owner. So yeah, I’ve been a geek for quite some time and a Mom since 1990.
I’m not artificial vanilla flavor. I am the original Geekmom.
Thanks Jeremy :)
While you were so entranced by the terrorist act of two losers, CISPA passed the House. It still needs to head its way into the Senate, I’m sure. Was it intentional to do it then? I have no idea. I”m not big on conspiracy theories, but I can tell you that CISPA isn’t exactly all that it’s cracked up to be.
I’ve heard so many conflicting stories of what it is. I do know that if Congressman McClintock votes against it, then I probably wouldn’t like it either. I heard that it enforces companies to get your passwords for your social networking sites or they won’t hire you. WHAT? I’ll add the link to that later.
What I want are YOUR responses on how you think CISPA will affect you and your home business. Will it affect your social networking? Will it affect your personal life? Let’s open this up for discussion below. Any and all links you know about are welcome.
Here is more information on CISPA and the people who voted for/against the bill.
What happened yesterday is just so unthinkable that it almost doesn’t seem real. I feel so bad for the families and everyone involved.
Come on, we’re not this kind of country. WE DO NOT ALLOW THESE THINGS TO HAPPEN. I don’t care who did it, I hope they find you and prosecute you or send you to the very pits of Gitmo. There is no room for terrorism here at all.
So many people are jumping to conclusions and it needs to stop. This side blaming this side, etc etc. No one will know until they find out more and when they do I hope they don’t put it under the rug and hide it or call it something other than a terrorist act.
Anyway, it makes me ill that someone or a group can feel so little for people that they would put people in danger. I don’t care what your cause is, innocent human life is sacred from conception to old age so I hope the one who did this is busted real soon.
I’m not great at writing sentimental messages, but this is how I feel.
Another week has passed and you’re still thinking about what you’re going to do for your Internet Marketing company. Are you still stuck on the products you’re going to release or how you’re going to get the word out? Because if you are, then I know of a great company that can help you out.
You see, the problem most people have is where to get started. Many are stuck on the way to get started even after they’ve watched video after video and read countless amounts of information. Do you want to know the easiest way to get started? Just do it! It doesn’t take much money at all. In fact, the MLSP program you can get for 3 days for just a few dollars and then the starter account for a little less than $20 per month. That should get you started on learning how to get leads.
Now, MLSP will teach you a lot about getting leads through social networking and email marketing, but if you want to figure out how to build a great blog with more information than I can ever bring you then check out . I have a lot of great information about plugins, motivation, etc, but he is the blogging king and will show you how to how to build that blog from the ground up.
You can do it if you just put your mind to it! If you want to be a wahm and work from home then you need to get started now.
So I’ve had a bitcoin account for awhile now. I tried a couple of freebie games on it just to play and I have about 1.5 bitcoin which at the time while I was playing the games was about $10, I think. I didn’t pay any money into it, it just happened that I was playing around with some surveys and clicking links that paid.
So my little tiny 1.5 bitcoin I found out is worth about $250, or at least it was yesterday. I thought about cashing out and tried. Unfortunately, I was .1 bitcoin behind and couldn’t cash out. That was such a drag. $250 could have helped me in my next venture.
So what to do with these bitcoins I have? I could just let them sit there and vest I suppose. I could donate them. I could play games or actually buy domains with them because namecheap does use bitcoin now. I’m not sure yet. It’s kind of like real money but not really so I’m sure if I take it out of the account I’ll get taxed on it which is not what I want at all.
I’m still not seeing the value of a block of data except that our currency, which is supposed to be backed by gold, is really backed by not much right now so I can understand this a little bit. LOL I don’t know.
What do you think I should do with it? If I take it out do I get taxed on it? If I buy services for my business can I write them off? How does this all work? I’m so confused!
