Access Your Home Or Work Desktop From Your iPhone

Attention iPhone or iPod Touch owners!!!

There is an awesome new application that I discovered for my iPhone that I wanted to pass along to you. It reminds me of that go2mypc software you may have heard advertised only it is for your iPhone. I have been using this to blog and it is soooooo cool! Trust me I have been using this for about a week and LOVE IT! If you have an iPhone and are a mobile individual you really need to check this out.

You can control files and applications on your PC or Mac right from your iPhone or iPod touch. Files2Phones delivers "On Demand" access for instantly viewing Data, Audio and Video files & controlling applications and files on your PC, or Intel Mac with a Windows partition, from your iPhone or iPod touch. This is one of the most convenient apps I have used in a long time. Like I said combined with the wifi capabilities of the iPhone I can now blog from anywhere much easier than before. Trust me I have actually blogged from my old cell and it was very difficult.

Files2Phones is iPhone software and is a powerful desktop management, delivery and display software, presenting your data on request on your iPhone, helping you get your work done, no matter where you are. Now you can work smarter, save time and be more productive by controlling any application or viewing any content right on your iPhone. And Files2Phones works on your iPod touch as well.
  • View any data files or directories, any font, any character set, that you have made available on your computer, not just Word and Excel, but any files, .pdf files, even autoCAD, with no extra surcharges for unusual file types and no limits on the number of files you can share or the amount of storage space you can have - it's your data on your own desktop.
  • Launch any application on your desktop directly from your iPhone then manage it remotely, display menus, execute functions, even access Skype on your desktop and call right from your iPhone.
  • And for enhanced security when you do access your desktop from your iPhone or iPod touch, our patent pending "Eyes Off" technology automatically blanks your desktop displays so no one else can view your content while you execute remotely.
  • Place your data and directories in Public, Private and Guest areas for maximum security with access flexibility, and remember, your files stay securely on your own desktop, no copies for others to see, it's your data on your desktop plus all data transfers between your desktop and your iPhone are encrypted.
  • If you want to share your data so others can use it, simply email them a secure link for the file, right from your iPhone. They can open the file from the email message, wherever they are, by using the address link to launch a browser to access your data.
  • For dynamic access to content, connect to a colleague and display the contents of their desktop computer screen, whatever they display. Ask for payment history right before a customer meeting, review inventory levels in real time or prior proposals, your data, in the palm of your hand with Files2Phones.
  • View your desktop Webcam remotely from your iPhone in single shot or continuous mode.
  • Publish your photos in real time, from the iPhone camera "click" to emailing the image to your private web page for global visibility in moments.

Free Trial Of My Yahoo Search Marketing Success Kit

As an affiliate marketer I do a TON of PPC advertising. For the longest time I pretty much stuck with google adwords as that is what I was familiar with. I also know how to work the adwords angles and get Lord & Taylor postions at Wal-Mart prices. The key is patience with your keywords and bid prices. There is a lot more to it, but that is not for this article.

Well over the last 8-9 months I have branched out from using just adwords to using Yahoo Search Marketing, Bidvertiser, and just recently Amazon's Clickriver. Clickriver will be revamping their ad placements starting Jan 1 which they say will have an impact on available impressions. I'll have to see how that changes. What I really wanted to talk about in this article though is that in my opinion you can, in a lot of instances, make better profits with Yahoo search marketing. Now it is your turn to make the big bucks and put them in your own pocket. I am offering a new Yahoo Search Marketing Success kit to all of my readers.

Yahoo Search Marketing is great and you can claim your FREE Trial of Yahoo Search Marketing Success today! I am offering this limited time Free trial of my Yahoo Search Marketing Success Kit. I Just wanted to send a quick Thank You for your participation in this blog. This is a fabulous product. It is so easy to use and you will love seeing the pages take shape so quickly. For someone with limited computer knowledge, you will be able to get a website up and running in less than 1 hour and be on your way to Yahoo Search Marketing Success.

Quality Leads = Direct Affiliate Marketing Conversions

If you have a great high converting affiliate program but don't have anyone to send it to it doesn't do you any good. Or if you send it to 1,000,000 people that aren't interested in the slightest that doesn't do you any good either. Having high quality sales leads is a great boost to an affiliate marketer. Here is a top 10 list of ways to boost your direct affiliate marketing campaign. This list is courtesy of Lead Dogs, where you get "marketing with more bite."

Top 10 Ways to Boost Direct Marketing Results


1. Have an offer and don't hide it. Don't just put "Get your free CD" in the last paragraph of your brochure. Boring. Include a picture of the CD in a prominent location with your phone number and Web address.
2. Use telemarketing before the promotion to research, build, or clean up target account lists for improved results.
3. Use telemarketing after the promotion to ensure that your message is heard and ask for an opportunity to meet.
4. Give a unique URL that points prospects to information specific to your promotion or campaign.
5. Personalize all aspects of your direct marketing campaign either via direct mail, phone, or the Internet. We all know something about everyone that we're marketing to. So leverage it.
6. Call your contacts first and tell them a promotional mailer is on its way. It gives you an opportunity to get referrals and it allows you to put "The information we discussed is enclosed" on the envelope.
7. Build a relationship marketing system that includes delivering the right offer to the right prospect at the right time.
8. Know an organization's "pain chain." This includes each person in each area of the company that is affected by not having your solution. Ask for them by function or title when gathering referrals.
9. Always utilize multiple response mechanisms such as toll free numbers, Web addresses, business reply cards, etc.
10. When you get a response - unleash a tsunami! Go after the "pain chain," or everyone in the company that the problem affects.

Earthfrisk - A "for real" Great Alternative To Google Search

I know a lot of people that use just google or just yahoo when doing a search. This can limit your results as each engine tends to rank sites differently and therefore your results can vary greatly from one to the other. I know for me, since the google PR drop due to sponsored links, that now my pages rank much higher in yahoo than they used to and lower in google. No one search engine has a monopoly on the "best" results.

EarthFrisk.Org is the worlds first hybrid meta-community search engine. I have to be honest I am just a bit leery on their social ranking procedure, but it has worked well for Digg and others who allow users to "digg" or "bury" sites and combining this with hybrid results of the top search engines will bring a nice balance to the results. I noticed right away that already the searches I did seem to have superior results by combining the very best of Ask, Google, Yahoo and MSN's Live! I did a search on google, yahoo, and ask and visited the top 5 results on each to do a subjective personal judge on relevance. I then search for the same term on EarthFrisk and found that the top 5 were a combination of google and yahoo and 3 spammy sites were not shown. The way Earthfrisk works helps weed out the spam sites.

Another really cool feature beneficial to all of us bloggers is that they also interface with Digg, the undisputed king of social news sites, as well as StumbleUpon, Wikipedia and more. With Earthfrisk results you can really see what others think of sites, services and people with their own comments! Join The community powered search results and make rankings and search engine results a truly people-oriented function no longer dominated by any one company.

Year-End Moves For Investors

As we near the end of the year I am always looking for ways to lessen my tax burden. I hate giving the government money. I have a firm belief that I know MUCH better what to do with my money that any local, state, or federal government. The government does nothing efficient and certainly don't worry about profitability as most are convinced that the American taxpayer is their limitless ATM machine for all of their well intentioned program. I have always thought it funny that the US postal service can't make money but UPS, FEDEx, DHL, and many other regional and national parcel services continuously make a profit. Another good example is AmTrak. I know carrying people is different than cargo but I still find it ironic that AmTrak has never made money, ever, but there are tons of rail services that do. The federal government will never do things efficiently and almost NEVER end a program once it is started. Then they scare the American people into thinking someone wants to cut program x by by 10% or whatever. When in reality everyone is proposing an increase just one party wants 20 and the other 10 so the one that wants 20 accuses the other of wanting to cut program x by 10% when the reality is they want to increase it by 10%. Stupid government games. Sorry I digress. You see you don't want to get me started on taxes and government. Well after all that here are some great end of the year tips for your investments.

Can A New Novice Trader Make Money With Forex?

As an online, and off, entrepreneur I like for my efforts to make money. That is the ultimate goal of any business right? Now if you have read much on this blog you also know that I love saving money. I like leveraging different methods together to get the best possible use of my money. Whether that is saving on a purchase or saving by putting money into an investment vehicle of some kind, to me it is all saving money. A penny saved is a penny earned type of thing.

One area that I got involved about 6 years ago is Forex Trading. Forex is simply a currency trading market like the NYSE is for stocks. You buy or sell different currencies and obviously the goal like any investment is to make money. I started out with the free accounts you see advertised everywhere so that I could get used to the concept and get a feel for market. I did a lot of reading on the subject as well. After trying out a ton of strategies from a myriad of sources I found some things that worked for me. Once I ran them through my free "play" money account for a while to really see how they would work I graduated to a mini Forex account. From there I graduated to a full account and the rest as they say is history. I just recently came across a Forex trading platform that is great for newer Forex investors. If you are looking to get into Forex you should check out eToro.

eToro is an innovative Forex trading platform that enables novice traders to easily enter the exciting arena of currency trading, through a friendly interface. The platform is based on visual representation of financial transactions, allowing users an intuitive approach to Forex trading, while combining special features such as a community chat and championships with prizes. Here is a screen shot for you to take a look at. You can see the friendly graphical interface as opposed the huge charts and graphs you usually get.

Targeted Lists Are Key To Successful Affiliate Marketing

Having targeted, preferably double opt-in, email (and snailmail) addresses in my opinion is key to a successful email or direct mail marketing campaign. Having a great landing page, or other vehicle, that captures potential customers email, and mail, addresses is a must have tool for any affiliate marketer.

Looking to do a mortgage lending campaign, you want addresses for people interested in a new mortgage or refinance. Wanting to run email ringtone campaign, you want cell phone owners, and probably a younger demographic. You don't want to be sending ringtone ads to older folks in their 70's that have never owned a cell. You can see the importance for screened and targeted lists.

There are several ways to get such a list. You can build it yourself through a collection vehicle of some type such as a good landing page, a site newsletter, etc.. Or you can buy consumer mailing lists both email and snailmail targeted lists. I use both methods. I have several landing pages where people enter email addresses as well as buying lists for some campaigns.

I can't say I would prefer one always over the other. I have been successful with both. Obviously creating your own is cheaper, but can take a long time. Buying lists can be a risky deal if you don't take care who you are buying from and how they get their lists. A site that I use is called Guaranteed Lists.

At Guaranteed Lists, they don't just sell lists and leads, they help show you the way to profit! They provide valuable marketing expertise, which most of us don't have, to help make your campaign succeed! Guaranteed Lists has just about the largest business database available anywhere, with information on more than 13 million US companies and 57 million companies worldwide, ranging from large public corporations to small privately owned firms. With over 280 million consumers available from Guaranteed Lists, it's easy to find your perfect prospect! You can choose your guaranteed prospects using a variety of demographic data selections like age, gender, length of residence, and income.

What do you do, if anything, to capture potential customer's email addresses? Have you, or have you considered, purchasing a targeted safelist? What are your methods for marketing? Do you do offline direct mail? Would you consider it?

5 Ways To Maximize Hits4Pay Earnings

Maximize Your Hits4Pay Earnings Many of you may have read my original Hits4Pay Program Review article published towards the end of June as it seems to pretty popular internally and with google :). I wanted to give a big thanks to all of you who have joined Hits4Pay and give all of my readers an update and all of my affiliates some tips on maximizing your Hits4Pay income. I use Hits4Pay as supplemental income to cover PPC costs, link buys, and other expenses.

Hits4Pay has been a very successful program for me to date earning me about $1500 in about 8 months. That isn't bad for about 20 minutes a week. I don't state that to brag but to show you the potential that is there. In light of my article Blogs, Full of Sound and Fury, Signifying Nothing, I don't want to just tell you how much I earned, tell you that you can do it to, give you a link, and leave it at that. I want to help you succeed, and maximize your earnings in the Hits4Pay program. In that spirit here are my 5 Steps.

5 Ways to Maximize Hits4Pay Earnings


Step 1
One of the biggest mistakes I see when talking with my affiliates is the under utilization of the interest categories. If you haven't checked the maximum categories, You Aren't Receiving Maximum Emails! You need to immediately go into your Hits4Pay account, select the My Account Tab, choose Edit Interest Categories, and pick the maximum allowed which is 25. This will give you the best chance to get the most emails possible based on your interests. I have read 71 emails this month. The results of this problem can be seen in that the most emails read by any of my affiliates is 50. I believe this discrepancy is a direct result of the category issue just explained and the ones I will address next.

Step 2
It is very important to make sure that you are receiving the Hits4Pay emails. I have many affiliates I talked to that were never receiving the new message alerts because the messages were being filtered as SPAM. Whatever email service you are using make sure that hits4pay is on your "white" or approved email list. When I told this to one affiliate the question was asked "If all the emails must be read from the internal mailbox why does it matter whether or not I am receiving the alerts? I am checking my internal box daily already." Well I'll address that in step 4 but first step 3.

Step 3
Now that you are getting the max emails for your interests and receiving the alerts in your email, you need to be able to find them easily and quickly. Use a filter for incoming mail so that you can sort and label the Hits4Pay alerts. I don't know that email program you are using but most allow for filtering of emails into folders or categories. I receive hundreds of legit emails a day and trying to find the Hits4Pay alerts amongst them would be cumbersome if not for the filter and label option in gmail. The benefit of this is that you can readily see when new alerts come in and you can quickly and easily respond. This is key to step 4.

Step 4
Respond quickly to email alerts by going to Hits4Pay and viewing the email as soon as possible. Back in step 2 I told you about a question that arose when I told an affiliate about the importance of receiving the alerts. The question was "If all the emails must be read from the internal mailbox why does it matter whether or not I am receiving the alerts? I am checking my internal box daily already." Here is the reason why. The emails you will receive have a limited number of times they can be read. If you are not receiving the alerts when they are offered and if you are only checking once a day, you are missing out on many emails.

Step 5
Promote the Hits4Pay program and help your affiliates. Okay maybe this is sort of two things. But this is about helping others succeed as well, so promotion without support just isn't acceptable.

The question I seem to be asked the most when discussing Hits4Pay, and probably one that most people ask themselves when taking a look at the program, is "if they only pay 2 cents an email won't it take forever for me to reach the $25 payment threshold?" The answer is yes, if you are the only one doing the reading. It will take you a bit to get to $25. For example, mtd I have read 71 emails personally for a total of $1.42 generated by me. With the $10 free at sign up, and no referrals, I would be at $11.42. A far cry from $25. Let us run the numbers here so you can get a better idea.

$25 - $11.42 = $13.58 still needed to reach payment
$13.58 / $0.02 = 679 emails to be read to reach payment
679 / 71 = 9.6 rounded up to 10 months to reach payment

And that is if the email count stays steady, which is never guaranteed, and you have maximized your personal earnings using steps 1-4.

Now look at the numbers when you add in 10 referrals who each refer only 2, which is very realistic to attain if you promote using the various methods below.

71 * 30 = 2130 emails to affiliates
2130 * $0.01 = $21.30 earned by affiliates + $11.42 earned by you, including the free $10 signup bonus = $32.72.

Thus you would earn payment in at the very latest your second month. With just a few more affiliates you could be earning payout every month. This is why it is much more profitable and productive to promote the program than to simply try and earn the payout yourself. Now how to promote the program.

Recommended Promotions are as follows:
  • Your own opt-in list

  • Email ads to Safelists

  • Banner exchange programs

  • Traffic programs

  • Newsletter advertising

  • Article Promotions

  • Link Exchange services

  • Free classified advertising

  • Email advertising

  • List building

  • Pay-per-click advertising

  • Signature files

  • Product Reviews

Let me tell you a few of my favorite and most successful promotional tools.
Bidvertiser will give you $20 free PPC advertising so you can start promoting almost instantly.
I also have had good success with signature file promotions. I recommend trying different mediums to find what works best for you.

I hope this has been profitable in helping you to maximize your Hits4Pay earnings. Are there any questions you have? Anything I wasn't clear about. Maybe you have tried some things and would like to share your experiences. Leave a comment and start the discussion.

Smorty - Paid Posting And Advertising For Your Affiliate Campaigns

Well in most opinions probably not but there are some advantages. If after all the Google pagerank issues of the past month you are still doing paid links and paid posting then let me point you to another good paid posting site. The site is Smorty. What Smorty stands for or means I have no idea. What Smorty is, is a paid posting site with a few added benefits over PayPerPost. So if you are looking for another revenue stream in your making money online ventures you might want to check out Smorty.

My first impression of the user control panel and account management front end is that it is quite a bit less robust than that of PayPerPost. That being said, the opportunities available pay very well and there are a decent amount of them. There aren't as many as you might get from the big boy but enough to be a nice supplement to other paid posting sources.

One advantage that Smorty has over PayPerPost is that they pay weekly. With PPP you have to wait about 30 days for payment for a post. With Smorty all posts approved, usually within 5 days of submission, within the week are paid that week. This is a great way to supplement income to your blog and get paid weekly.

Another plus is that the posting requirements aren't quite as restrictive as PPP. There isn't a tracking image which is nice. Overall I really like Smorty and really think it would make a great addition to your online get paid for blogging ventures. Not only can you use Smorty to get paid for posting but you can also use them to advertise on blogs. You can advertise your blog, or an affiliate campaign. So check out Smorty for your paid posting and advertising needs.
