 LNIM055 – WordPress Attack and Consumer Intent | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2292

In this episode, we talk about the new WordPress Attack, chat more about Niche Keyword Research, why it's important, and how to think about it. We also tackle a really tough listener question about money making potential in internet marketing. Is it worth the time? All this and more! You gotta love that. This Week Around Late Night IM There is a WordPress attack underway. You can read about it on the CERT site. Concern is creation of a massive high-bandwidth botnet. Here are some things you should do right away * Update all themes, plugins and (of course) WordPress * Make sure that you do not have a user named “admin” * Install Limit Login Attempts plugin Big thing last week was the end of the Forever Affiliate 6 week coaching program. I can say without a doubt that this is the best affiliate marketing course that I have ever been involved in. It was just awesome. As a result of the course, I have a 20 site plan for 2013 with the goal of having 10 brand new profitable sites by the end of the year. I'm slower than some of the other people in the course because in addition to my day job, I have this crazy blog and podcast to maintain. My plan is still to report all the results to you as they happen. I have this awesome master control spreadsheet complete with tasks and target dates. I need to update that for “reporting” so that I can easily and accurately tell you what is going on….but the basic snapshot is like this. I have the process broken out into five major steps: * Niche selection — including finding an offer, finding keywords and profit testing * Site Build — this includes getting the domain up and running with WP * Post Content — includes ordering content and images and posting them * Monetize site — includes link tracking, offer placement, etc * Initial promotion — includes cheap promotion before sale for about a month * Paid testing — includes paid testing through PPC * Asset promotion — if the site makes sales, big promotion * Ongoing promotion — rankings achieved, ongoing promotion Current status * 14 niches identified * 4 sites built * 3 sites have content posted * 1 site in initial promotion Also working on a cool experiment with another 10 sites based on this report from John Leger and Josh Spaulding.  The report shows how to make automatic sites in just 4 easy steps using Article Builder and Keyword Canine. We have had more sniffles, fevers and other junk running around my house. I am starting to wonder if we are cursed. It's really hard to work on your internet business when you don't feel great, or when you are taking care of a sick little one. It's one of the things that gets in the way. Listener Feedback On From Facebook Michael Stephens Mark -I have for some time now been going down the road of affiliate/internet marketing, but the thought that is continually nagging in the back of my mind is that is this really worth the effort? I don't mind at all working hard for something, and putting in the time, as I realize its not going to occur over night, but I don't want to do it if its all for nothing and there is no payoff. I guess I think about it this way – there are certain activities that a person can do that have higher values in an economy than other things. For example a doctor usually demands a higher salary than a clerk in a department store.

 LNIM054 – Niche Keyword Competition | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2167

Here we are at episode 054.  Niche Keyword Competition.  This is the third episode in a row where we have touched on niche keyword selection, and today we talk about how you should think about niche keyword competition.  Keyword selection and targeting is really important.  As I mentioned last week, this can make the difference between success and failure in Internet Marketing. Once once again I extend our discussion that all started in episode 051 and talk more about keyword competition.  In particular, we talk about the way back linking profiles have changed in the post-Penguin era. I also address listener feedback from Joe where I try to help him choose between Forever Affiliate, Internet Business Mastery Academy and Micro Site Profits. This episode also features a special Portuguese intro from Cesar Abeid from The Construction Industry Podcast and a cool acoustic version of the theme song from Tim at The Awesome Podcast.  Enjoy!

I got all kinds of crazy goofy stuff done and had a really good week. Late Night Internet Marketing Meet-Up The highlight of my week from an internet business perspective had to have been my fun time on Wednesday night with the Late Night Internet Marketing meet-up crew. I had all kinds of people there. If you haven’t been there, go on over to the Facebook fan page and check that out. We had Lance there from Web Driven Income.

Episode 052 Transcript I hope you had a fantastic week. Did you do what I asked you to do at the end of the podcast – did you make some real progress on your internet business last week? I really hope that you did. If you didn’t get that done, if you heard what I said but forgot to do it, all hope is not lost. I’m going to ask you to do it one more time this week. I hope that you made more progress in your week than I made in mine. You can probably tell I’m suffering from a little bit of a cold. I caught Morgan’s cold. We all started with the strep, I told you guys about that a couple weeks ago. Morgan’s ended in a cold and I got it from her. Too many little girl kisses, I guess. I’ll survive and I’ll make it through this episode. What I wanted to talk about today was extending our topic from last week and get into some more practical affiliate marketing tips about how to actually select a niche. So if you listened last week, we talked a little bit about passion versus profit. This week I want to talk about when you’re working through that what the actual tools and techniques and methods are that you can use to find a niche inside affiliate marketing. Before we do that, I have a couple of reminders for you. I wanted to remind you that Wednesday March 27th at 8:00 PM at the Londoner Pub in Allen, Texas, I will be there with eight or ten of my closest listener friends, and we will be hashing over internet marketing topics – or not, we may be talking about the Dallas Mavericks. We’ll be there and I’ll be happy to hang out, answer questions, and talk about internet marketing and just enjoy a meet-up ...

 LNIM051 – Passion versus Profit and Interview With Matt from Go2Geo.com | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3455

Passion versus Profit:  Greetings and welcome to episode 051. Today, I work through some listener feedback on Passion versus Profit.  Dave from the UK asks me where I stand, since I seem to talk about both passion-focused opportunities like the Internet Business Mastery Academy teaches and Profit-focused stuff like Forever Affiliate. It's a great question, and I deal with it head on. Also, Matt Richardson from Go2Geo.com is in the house to talk about his new service and why it's important to affiliate marketers.  He also gives us a behind the scenes look at starting a new internet business. This week around LateNightIM — Traveling again — American is back on track.  In February 1987 the Federal Aviation Administration imposed a $9.5 million fine against Eastern Air Lines for safety violations,[11] which was the largest fine ever assessed against an airline until American Airlines was fined $24.2 million in 2010.[12] (WikiPedia) Johnny Manziel tatoo is fake… FAKE tattoo.. — Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) March 13, 2013 I would not put a longhorn tattoo on my chest for a showbox full of gold Krugerands — well maybe. — Everybody sick —  Strep throat is caused by streptococcal (strep) bacteria. There are many different types of strep bacteria. Some cause more serious illness than others. (WebMD) — LNIM meetup Wed 3/27 at 8PM at the Londoner in Allen, TX iTunes Review Feedback 5 star review from Eric11155 Practical and very useful information for online marketing presented in a very down to earth manner Facebook Fan Page From the land of ice shards — Dave Tudor * Hi from the UK Mark. I listen to your podcast regularly and am one of those ‘on the verge' Internet marketers trying my best to get started.I get a little confused as to where you stand on the subject of affiliate marketing. On the one hand you actively support guys like pat Flynn who advocate finding a niche that you're passionate about and build a business around that. On the other you seem to champion Andrew Hansen who seems far less choosy on the content of his sites with the major driver being to select niches that can make money.There does seem a bit of a conflict on this. In my mind you can only really recommend one method and not both. I did buy Andrew Hansen's latest course (through your affiliate link I believe) but his approach is far more ‘mercenary' (if that's the right word) than Pat's.Please clarify which side of the fence you're actually on Mark if. You'd be so kind. Thanks. Matt Richardson — Go2Geo Great interview from Matt about this interesting service.

 LNIM050 – Getting Started On Line With Pat Flynn | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2745

Woo Hoo!!!  Episode 50. To celebrate, I invited Pat Flynn back on the show to rap about getting started on line. Pat and I spend some time talking about some of the things that really bother us about the internet marketing industry.  One of those things is people that take advantage of new marketers that are just trying to get started.  We have advice for people who are just getting started online and we also have some tips for people who need money now.

Episode 050 Transcript It is the big 5-0! They said it couldn’t be done and here I am, Late Night Internet Marketing Episode 50 and I am fired up. I was thinking, “What can I do for episode 50?” I know I had planned from the guy at GoToGeo, but we’re going to have that next week when we’ll have some updates on the Corn Sheller Site and all that great stuff. But I got to thinking, “What am I all about here? It’s episode 50, I get to do whatever I want.” I decided I wanted to call Pat. So I have Pat on the phone and we’re just going talk about getting started in internet marketing and maybe reminisce a little bit about stuff that was going on back in 2007. Maybe some of this stuff will inspire you and help you a little bit. I know it inspires me every time that I talk to Pat. He’s such a great friend and he dropped everything that he was doing tonight to get on the phone with me at the last minute. I really appreciate that and I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed it myself. Transcript continued from the Episode 050 Show notes

Episode 049 Transcript In this episode of Late Night Internet Marketing we’re a little chopped up. I’ve been all over the place out in San Jose running a conference out there. I had big fun with my friends, I’ve been running that conference for about four years – it has to do with lithography. I was in the San Jose area and I got to see lots of stuff, so you’ll hear about that. You’ll also hear about my experience with Leo Laporte at TWiT. You’ll hear my thoughts about the Corn Sheller site, about what’s going on with the snoring site, and we’ll talk a little bit about the Google Adwords Keyword Tool with a little refresher course for those of you out there that haven’t looked at that for awhile or for new internet marketers that are trying to make sense of that. Before we get heavily into the meat of the episode, I wanted to let you know that I have scheduled the next Late Night Internet Marketing Meetup in Allen, Texas as The Londoner Pub. I love The Londoner Pub, and you will too. Come join us. We already have several people going, I think there are seven or eight people already on the Facebook fan page where I’ve created an event. You can find that at LateNightIM.com/meetup. It will be Wednesday the 27th of March at 8:00 PM. It’s really casual, we just kind of sit around and chat, I don’t have an agenda or anything like that. I’ll answer questions, we can talk about what you’re doing, and just hang out and eat some fried bar food and drink a beer, a Diet Coke, a water, or whatever. Come on out and join us, we’d really like to see you there. Transcript continued from the Episode 049 Show notes

I has to have had a revision in the last 6 months for me to consider it * Then I look at the number of downloads. If it has a lot, 10,000 or more, it's probably legit * Lastly, I always look to see if it contains screenshots. Lots of plugins don't so it's hard to know which ones are good by seeing what the plugin looks like installed. * Then I will highlight the plugin name and go back into WordPress and search within WordPress.

 LNIM046 – Building Links Post Penguin | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1849

In this episode, I am recovering from an evil virus, but I discuss building links post Penguin anyway. I also reveal my plans for building affiliate sites in 2013.  As a special treat I air some bootleg clips from my daughter Pam's recent choir concert, and we discuss the next Late Night Internet Marketing meetup — planned for some time in March. In this episode of the Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast I talk about ……. This Week In Mark’s World * Still getting over the nasty virus that I caught from Morgan * Pam’s region choir performance last weekend * Awesome interview on the Awesome Podcast http://www.latenightim.com/awesome * Spending way too much time listening to the Steve Jobs bio http://www.latenightim.com/steve A plan for growing my affiliate business * Been watching all the vids from Andrew Hansen http://www.latenightim.com/fa * Here is one of the reasons that I am so excited about Andrew * But there are also affiliates who are informative only because they've researched the market in which they're informing. With the power of Google.  I can spend 30 minutes of research, and know more about any given product than a person who's considering buying it. 10 times more in fact. And I can save a potential buyer of that product a HUGE amount of time (and potential heartache) with what I now know.  Bottom Line: What we've discussed so far is the broad opportunity that exists, and the frame of mind needed to make money as an affiliate in 2013: Providing value. * So, I am going to try an build 10 new profitable sites in 2013 * Check out Andrew’s free report http://www.latenightim.com/fareport Listener Feedback * Itunes feedback from Consumer Warrior * Questions about link building from Chuck Brown * What kinds of links are working * I don’t use my full time VA for links * I am experimenting with higher end paid solutions * What anchor text percentages are you using? * Highly diversified.  No more than 20% * Actually turns out to be less * What are authority links * Links that are from high PR sites in your niche. * Or, links that are from high PR social sites (Squidoo) Leave Us A Review In iTunes Thanks so much for your reviews on iTunes.

In this episode, I interview Andrew Hansen.  I ask him a pretty simple question — can you still make affiliate web sites and turn a profit?  His answer is yes, and he has documented how to do it in his new course releasing in February.   But for now, we just talk about some of the amazing results that he is seeing in affiliate marketing despite Panda, Penguin  and other Google nonsense.

Episode 045 Transcript How is everyone this morning? Yes, morning, it’s Late Night Internet Marketing in the morning, very confusing for me. It’s 4:00-something in the morning and I just got off the phone with Andrew Hansen, a personal friend of mine. He’s the Aussie marketer I’ve had on the show a couple times before. He’s totally awesome. I’ve known him since 2007 when I got started. His breakthrough product that a lot of people have heard about years ago was Niche Marketing on Crack when he was a young guy. That’s a terrible name now. It sounds terrible, but at the time that was breakthrough stuff. He was talking about how you could make money with affiliate marketing and it’s one of the ways I got started. Andrew and I have been friends and I’ve followed him around the world. He lives a location independent life, which is really cool. He’s from Australia, he currently lives in London. He spent some time in Thailand recently, putting together this course. He talks about it a little bit on the call that we’re going to have here in a minute. He says he took some time in Thailand to just chill out and create a course to answer some of these objections and questions and concerns about all the changes in Google.

It was an awesome session, and it made me pull out the audio recorder in my car and record my own list. Detailed show notes coming soon.

Episode 044 Transcript Big yawn. I was up all night last night with a poor little sick three year old. That’s one of the hardest things about parenting. It’s not the staying up, of course you have to do that, but that’s not the big deal. The big deal is seeing these suffering poor little children whenever they get the flu or RSV type symptoms, not the actual flu. She seems to be doing better today, so I think she’s going to be okay, but my poor little baby. Gosh, I hate that. How are you? I’m a little sleepy, but I’m back on the mic and I have a few exciting things to talk to you about. I guess it was back in October around episode 40 when I was rolling down the road and I promised you some information on the Google Disavow Tool, but then we never got back to that. We’ll do that today. We’ll also talk a little bit about the Corn Sheller Site. I wanted to give you an update on that and let you know what’s going on. In fact, we’ll probably take that first. Then the other thing I wanted to talk to you about today was in Pat Flynn’s latest episode he talked about the things that he wished he had known when he got started with his own business and I thought that was great topic, I’m going to add in my two cents on that as a response to Pat’s episode of the things that I wish I had known. Pat’s stuff is more about business lifestyle and stuff that you need to know if you’re going to be a solo-entrepreneur. My stuff is complementary, it’s more like stuff that I wish I had known about internet marketing and som...

Episode 043 Transcript I just got back from Aguascalientes, Mexico where I was away on business. It was a groovy time, I had the most amazing food there. Particularly, some grilled octopus. (pictured below at right) This is episode 43, I hope you’re having a fantastic time and a fantastic week. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been on the mic, I’ve been spending a lot of time doing some planning for 2013. That planning includes lots of podcasting. If that appeals to you, you’ll be happy because I have a lot of podcasting planned. And I’m ready to rock and roll on the blog, I have a really good vision for what I want the blog to be and we’re going to get into that a little bit in this episode because I’d love your input on that. I want to tell you what my plans are and see what you think The other thing I have planned for you today is I had an email from a listener who wanted to discuss his website. Normally I’m not able to take the time to answer these things, but the email was really written and the guy was really nice and I was really interested in talking to him about it. He had done a lot of hard work and I felt like he just needed a little bit of help. So I did something that I don’t normally do, I called him up and talked to him for about 45 minutes about what I thought he should do with his website. Now, I’m not going to reveal to you his website, but there were some general principles that we discussed. He’s relatively new to internet marketing and there were some things that I saw on his website that I think it’s important to tell you about. Again, we won’t talk about his website specifically. His name is Chase, by the way. Shout out to Chase, thanks for the email, I really enjoyed our phone call.

 LNIM042 – Getting Out Of A Business Funk | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2056

Happy New Year and shout out to Cliff Ravenscraft. Thanks for bringing in the show Cliff. You rock! Thanks for the feedback from episode 041, especially the Great Show comment from Christian on Facebook. Thanks, man. In this episode, we take a look at 1o ways you can get out of your own business funk.  We also answer a listener question about being a non-native english speaking blogger. In This Show… Lots of feedback from the funk episode. It seems that lots of people deal with business funk from time to time, so I prepared a list of 11 ways to beat the funk. 1. Name it — you can't fix something that you don't realize is happening to you. This is a good reason to have goals and benchmarks and scorecards. You need an early detection 2. Own it — don't make excuses. Your funk, your responsibility Source URL: http://www.highexistence.com/choose-happiness-5-ways-to-get-out-of-a-funk Take Responsibility Nothing can bring you happiness but yourself. -Ralph Waldo Emerson Choose to be happy. Choose to win. Choose to beat the funk. 3. Reconnect with your vision — why are you doing what your trying to do? What does success look like? Imagine the success. 4. Stop bad habits — eating, not sleeping, watching TV, not keeping commitments. Source URL: http://www.elephantjournal.com/2012/12/6-steps-to-getting-out-of-a-funk-catherine-la-o/ Don’t turn on the TV.  It steals your time, and it blocks your creativity. 5. Start some good behaviors Source URL: http://www.elephantjournal.com/2012/12/6-steps-to-getting-out-of-a-funk-catherine-la-o/ Exercise. Michael Hyatt Source URL: http://michaelhyatt.com/how-to-get-out-of-that-funk.html Michael was in a funk and his wife said “Go Run”.  Michael says: When I called her an hour later, everything had changed. My emotional state had shifted—dramatically. I was focused, alert, and upbeat. I had a can-do attitude. This was a good reminder of something we had learned years ago from Tony Robbins: Emotion is created by motion. Bonus behavior — Declutter. 6. Celebrate some of your successes Write down three things you are thankful for or that you have accomplished. Quickly, the first things that come to mind. Now, stick the list in plain view for the rest of the day. When you accomplish something, celebrate. 7. Review success stories and case studies Lot's of them available.  Check out Internet Business Mastery. 8. Connect with your support network — spouse, friends, etc. Connect with someone that always cheers you up. Source URL: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/happiness-in-world/201206/how-get-out-funk Connect with people. 9. Manage Stress I'm not a huge Huff fan, but this is a neat article Source URL: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brant-secunda-and-mark-allen/new-years-resolutions_b_1139090.html Here is what Mark and Brant have to say about stress: Chronic stress produces high cortisol levels that gnaw away at your health. Chronically high cortisol will make you sick, physically and emotionally.

Episode 041 Transcript I promised myself I’d be back on the mic after Christmas and here I am. It’s really great to be here. I didn’t realize how much I had missed being on the mic until I started getting things ready and getting all the knobs tweaked. It’s kind of funny, in my studio I got a new desk and a partner desk so that my wife and I can sit across from each other and chit-chat. We were kind of needing to force that because with all these kids in the house and everything going on we need time to sit down together. Having a desk where we sit down face-to-face to handle mail and do all that kind of stuff is great for that because we end up at the desk and we can talk, it’s really cool. A lot of you that follow me on Twitter know that when I reconfigured my desk area I had to totally redo my studio equipment. What I didn’t realize was that I put my mixer in reach of my three year old who loves to play with the microphone, which is cool but she also loves to turn all the knobs. So if I sound a little funny it’s either because I have a cold or because she has adjusted me into some other oblivion. Transcript continued from the Episode 041 Show notes
