Happy New Year!

I wish all of you a wonderful and prosperous new year!
Well, let’s get right to it. If you're serious about being a money making internet marketer in 2012, you've got to rev up your list building activities. And the biggest thing you can do for yourself is utilize The Empower Network.
As more people venture online in search of starting their own business, the need to be two steps ahead of the competition has increased. The demand for new marketing tips and strategies on how to grow your list has grown, and as a result companies with claims of having the solution to list building problems are popping up everywhere. For the most part many of these are all hype with little to no substantial way of helping you do anything, however there is one that has not only made enormous claims, has also managed to back up each one in its first three weeks.

Empower Network Simplifies List Building

Empower Network has removed the technical aspect of list building by providing a system that has the ability to be integrated with your Aweber or Get Response auto responder. When a prospect enters their email to watch the sales video through your lead capture page they are automatically placed in your autoresponder as a lead. This happens whether they purchase the system or not, enabling you to capture their information send follow up emails promoting the Empower Network system through the email swipe copy that is provided by the network or from your own arsenal.  
The great thing about these leads is that not only are they targeted, and have shown expressed interest in you and your business, they are yours to keep and can be funneled into any of your opportunities or product campaigns.
Learning the various strategies that go into a successful marketing funnel to generate not just the right kind of leads, but consistent leads can be a challenge as attempting to build a list on your own takes a lot of time and money that many online marketers just do not have.

Empower Network makes it easy by covering four basic principles of list building.

1. Have a converting web form on your site
Your Empower Network Blog comes with a fully monetized theme. No matter where the prospect clicks they will be taken to your lead capture page and entered into your sales funnel.
2. Have valuable content that is useful to your readers
One of the biggest pieces to being successful with Empower Network is to blog daily, but unfortunately everyone does not possess the time to do that or the money to outsource. For those in this particular situation there is a solution: PLR
Without going into full detail, PLR stands for Private Label Rights, and is essentially where you purchase the rights to articles and blog posts to use as your own. This tactic is perfectly legal and one of the industry’s biggest secrets. For more information on high quality PLR check out the MLM PLR STORE.
3. Offer Great Products and Services
Empower Network’s plug and play viral blog/marketing system is so easy that anyone from the most experienced to the person who joined a few hours ago can make money. It levels the playing field for everyone and create success stories that position those using it as an industry leader in a way that’s never been done before.
4. Ethical Lead Generation
Anyone who opts in to your Empower Network list is there because they opted into your site. There were no unethical practices involved which allows you to maintain the reputation of being a quality marketer.

Now that you are able to see the value in this  system, don't waste time procrastinating, start building a lucrative online business for yourself today. The tools I've mentioned above make it so easy to get started and begin earning an income immediately.
All the Best,

A Fresh Perspective on Internet Marketing in the New Economy

Who would have thought a decade ago, that Sears or KMART would actually consider closing their doors. Just today a new article was released stating that Sears will be closing 120 stores. Although mediocre management may play a huge role in their downsizing, a store of this magnitude would usually be able to bounce back and keep its doors open.  So, here again, there are many of their employees who thought they had a stable job who will now have to seek employment elsewhere. And since there aren’t any new stores opening to replace the jobs they are losing,  they will have to earn a living elsewhere.
There is no better time than now to get started in internet marketing. Our traditional ways of doing business and making a living are quickly changing and it doesn’t look like it will ever return. The internet is still a vast open arena, with many opportunities. You just have to be careful and diligent when seeking or carving out a living online, but it’s definitely the best place to be.  Even stores like Sears don’t mind closing their stores because they have an online presence and in some areas, this is where they thrive.
For the new year, you should consider an online activity , whether a blog, affiliate marketing, or selling an ebook. You’ll be surprised how rewarding it can be.  You simply need to learn to do it right and stick with it. There are over 700 million people around the world online, and that’s one hell of an open market.  
Get more information and start learning how to position yourself to begin partaking in the new economy. Go to www.reneestarms.com  and sign up to get free information on how to get started.
Wishing you a great and prosperous new year!

How to make a Million Dollars

I was browsing the web and I came across an interesting blog by a man named Michael Brain, yep, Michael Brain, who happen to create the site “How stuff works “ which he sold to Discovery Communications  for a whopping $250 million.  He was asked to speak to the Graduating Class of Duke University and he chose the topic, how to make a million dollars.  He has actually started 3 successful businesses so you could certainly say he is an expert in this field and knows what he’s talking about.
He gave a pretty direct presentation with a lot of common sense advice. Here are a few of the basic points. It’s best to start your own business.  This is the most effective way that allows the most control.  You can either have the intention of building it to create an income for yourself or to sell it. In most instances, if successful , you could do both. 
Once you start a business, or businesses, don’t give up until you are successful. You have a one in ten chance of succeeding, if you stick with it and persevere. Those are much better odds than playing the lottery.   Over time, you get better at doing business and it becomes more natural to you, just like learning and playing  video games.
The internet is an awesome tool to utilize to create a business and in my opinion, every business should have an internet presence.
 According to Mr. Brain, “We could talk for a very long time about the Web, but let me briefly say that, today, there is a lot of money to be made. Google, with its Adsense program and search revenue program, has made it extremely easy to make money on the web. All that you have to do is create a web site that attracts a big audience, and you can make money.”
If you come up with a simple business idea where you can make people’s lives easier or give them what they want, you can find yourself with a successful business online or offline.
He suggested some great books to read. Here are a few, just visit the Amazon search button on my site, reneestarms.com  and pick up a few copies. They all cover different areas of being successful at business; some for the proper mindset, some about the basics of running a business as well as examples of successful business people.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad
The One Minute Millionaire
The Automatic Millionaire
Dave’s Way
Built From Scratch
Well,  I hope you found this helpful. My goal in 2012 is to jump of the path to creating a successful business and achieving my goal of making a million dollars. It’s not as daunting as it may seem, with a little perseverance , faith and determination I truly think I can do it. And so can you!
All the best!

The Top 10 Things I Like About Blogging

Well, it’s getting close to the end of my work day. I have a three year old that will be home from daycare soon so there is no way I could continue to work. One thing I ‘m really grateful for though, is the fact that I can arrange my day the way I choose and pretty much accomplish what I set out to do if I use my time wisely.
This is one of the great things about being a Blogger and choosing to build and internet marketing business. I ‘m beginning to get the hang of it and I really believe those of us doing this are in the best industry around today. 
It really doesn’t matter what Profession or business someone is in, it is pretty apparent that going online is becoming more and more vital. Previously, I was letting the whole internet technical world just pass me by, now I feel like an old Grandma trying to catch up, and every day there seems to be something new  to learn. With that said, I’m glad I have finally come aboard and here is a list of the Top 10 Things that I like about Blogging and Internet Marketing:

1.       You can blog about anything, just pick a topic or ask a question of interest and get feedback.
2.       You can create a stream of passive income from multiple sources online, like affiliate marketing, MLM, network marketing and so on.
3.       No time constraints, you have the freedom to work when and where you choose.
4.       Creating your own list; this is huge because once you get a following or subscriber base, you can cross sell and earn an income promoting or providing a service to whomever you like.  You own your own list and it is very valuable.
5.       You can learn something new every day; you stay abreast of the latest changes, which is going to be critical moving forward.
6.       You meet lots of interesting people, and you can structure your life around the people you chose, you can work with whom you choose and not have to put up with people whom you find difficult to deal with.
7.       It’s getting easier and easier to work online and much more acceptable and respectable.
8.       Unlimited income, you determine how much you want to make and what type of lifestyle you want to create. It’s all about the time and resources that you decide to put into it.
9.       Information to learn how to start a business, and with very little capital investment is readily available at your fingertips.
10.   The learning curve is lessened if you connect with the right opportunity or idea.
There are so many great things about building an online business, they’re really too numerous to count. Besides the money, there are so many people that you can help.  Many people need to be taught about this industry.  Every time you turn around someone is losing their job, many fortune 500 companies and the government s have laid off m any people who thought they would be financially secure, be working  for years and have a decent retirement. Those days are long gone. The landscape is changing every day. It’s time to get on board and learn everything you can about building you own business, offline and online.
Once you learn how to market successfully, you then teach others. Like “each one teach one” and that’s the beauty of this business if done properly. You are positioning yourself to earn unlimited income but at the same time, creating real value in other people’s lives and making a difference for so many. It is something to feel good about when done properly.
If you agree with me, visit me on facebook, like my page, then leave a comment about any online opportunity you’ve heard of, any training you’re interested in or know of.  Just share any information that you may know about any techniques, etc. 
Let’s close out 2011 productively and move into 2012 with high expectations of success!
All the Best!

Where to find Content for your Blog!

You have heard that in the blogging world, "Content is King" and blogging continues to be the best way to build your list. To be effective with your blogging, you need to blog daily. This is can be a huge undertaking, especially when just entering the world of internet marketing. There is always the struggle of what to share on your blog. 
Here are a few recommendations for sources you can use to provide content for your blog:

1. You can visit other blogs in your niche to find content. If you find yourself with nothing to blog about, see what other bloggers are talking about. Visit other blogs to get inspiration and ideas.  If you like what you read and how it is written, share the post your blog, but make sure to give credit to the original writer. Otherwise, rewrite the content, sharing your own thoughts and opinions about what you read.

2.Your day to day experiences provide more content for your blog than you think. Stop and take a look at what’s going on in the world around you. Perhaps you had an interesting conversation with someone that you can relate to your niche. Maybe you had someone give you an objection you never encountered, and you handled it terribly. Share those experiences. You will be surprised at how many people will be able to relate to you. 

3.What have you been learning lately? Have you been reading a great book, or have you attended an awesome seminar? Write a blog post about it! You may make the assumption that because YOU know something, that everybody else probably knows it already. That couldn’t be further from the truth! The more you grow and expand your knowledge base, the more you will have to share. Someone will resonate with what you have to share!

4.You can write a ‘how to’ blog post. How-to’s are actually awesome traffic-getting posts. For example, you could write a blog post on how to fill out a profile on a social media site. You could mention some tips for making the profile stand out, and tell your readers the type of information to enter into their profile. The ‘how-to’ options are endless. You could write a how-to on how to use Google! Don’t worry about whether the task seems menial, write it anyway. Again, you don’t know who will read your content and receive tremendous help!

5. The news is also a great source of blog content! If you see a news story related to your niche, share it! For example, if you’re a home-based business owner, and you see a story about additional tax benefits for home-based business owners, share it on your blog! This is the type of thing that really boosts your credibility, because you’re staying current with the trends! Mind you, you don’t need to comb the networks LOOKING for content. Just keep your eyes open for news stories.
6. What questions are being asked by your colleagues? Are they looking for marketing trends? Are they asking how to generate more leads? Look for the questions, and then write a blog post providing the answers. Don’t worry about knowing the answer; just be able to find it!  The more questions you answer, the more valuable you become!

7. Another great source for blog content is Private Label Rights – PLR. You can purchase the rights to content written by someone else. You can use a service such as the MLM PLR Store to fill your content needs. This has been an industry secret for a REALLY long time, and is still an underused resource.
Blogging is a great way to gain a following and build a list, but it can be difficult. Use the sources above to produce an endless stream of content for your blog!
