Blogging / Social Media

Hi Friends,

I have been meaning to post these videos for a while!

These are two essential bookmarking tools that have made my life so much easier.

Since you may be taking advantage of Tribe Syndication

and are using many of the vast array of social media sites, internet tools and systems that could potentially clog up your bookmarks, I wanted to show you a cool way to organize them easily.

These two ideas have saved me hours.

I want to caution you…Adding on anything to Mozilla Firefox has it’s drawbacks, so please be CAREFUL!!

The Synergy of Tribe Marketing

by limitlesslaura

You’ve probably heard the saying that “there’s strength in numbers” right?What if I told you that one simple action you could participate in could drastically affect your:

  • Blog traffic
  • Internet presence
  • Brand message reception
  • Online & Offline relationships
  • Sales
  • Sponsorships
  • Following

Synergy: “The combination of factors which each multiply the effects of the other(s) rather than merely adding to them.”

There are certain universal laws that are fixed, and the law of synergy is one of them. It says that the resulting actions of the collective as a WHOLE are far greater than those individually, and in fact are exponentially multiplied. It’s this law that can help you become a VERY successful entrepreneur, if committed to and applied correctly.

In this case I’m referring to Tribes and more specifically utilizing a blogging Tribe community to catapult your popularity and followers. How would you like it if you had an audience that could not wait to read what you had to say next?! This is the kind of following that all top marketers and frankly all top bloggers and good communicators in business have. Remember the commercial “When E.F. Hutton talks..everyone listens”.  That’s the ultimate audience..and that’s what’s possible for you, with tribe marketing.

Tribes are  nothing more than communities of people with one common purpose. The book by the same name Tribes by Seth Godin started a social media revolution in 2008, through his concept as he is the first to point out in his book is as old as time:

‘A tribe is any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader, and an idea. For millions of years human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate…Tribes need leadership. Sometimes one person leads, sometimes more. People want connection and growth and something new. The want change…You can’t have a tribe without a leader, and you can’t be a leader without a tribe…Human beings can’t help it, we need to belong. One of the most powerful of our survival mechanisms is to be part of a tribe, to contribute to (and take from) a group of like minded people. We are drawn to leaders and their ideas, and we can’t resist the rush of belonging and the thrill of the new…All of it is worthless if you don’t decide to lead. All of it goes to waste if your leadership is compromised, if you settle, if you don’t commit.”

Seth Godin ~ Tribes

So What’s In It For You?

The reason tribes are so powerful are many. The internet is a vast and VERY crowded place. When people come to your blog, what is it they expect to see? Activity! There is nothing more drab, and frankly a turn off than a blog that looks like nobody visits it. Conversely, think of visiting a blog that has lots of comments, shares, tweets etc. It feels exciting! You get the immediate feeling like this person has something going on, and people like to come back often! Not only that YOU become the person to DO BUSINESS with. Isn’t that the bottom line?

  • Why Syndication Is Key..and CAN Make You Money

  • Network Marketing Tips


Who Is Gavin Mountford?

Gavin really enjoys connecting with new people & turning them from strangers into friends. He lives in a small town near London in the UK with his wife Pippa, and his brand new baby daughter Charlotte, who they fondly call “Lottie”. He is a devoted new daddy.

At the time of shooting this interview, his wife was not yet expecting beautiful little Lottie!

But as you may or may not know Gavin and his wife Pippa became parents on January 10, 2011 as  Charlotte Ann Mountford was born weighing 6lb 3 oz.

In his free time, Gavin is totally head over heels for his daughter Lottie, as any new Daddy would be! Gavin loves traveling, playing the guitar, listening to music, exercising, personal development and spending time with family & friends.

One of Gavin’s true passion’s is learning how we, as people work, what makes us tick, and why do we do the things we do? Gavin’s been online for 5+ years & during that time he’s studied network marketing, Internet marketing, persuasion, influence & psychology and has been looking at ways to apply it to Facebook and the social networks.

I met Gavin online last summer when I was looking for some very specific direction in our business. He was able to provide this direction in a very professional and laser focused manner. In the process I was also pointed toward an entire network of people and tools to educate and advance my online knowledge so that I cut a year off my learning curve! Gavin introduced me to the Tribe Syndication Association, (TSA) and the value of syndicating blog content!  Up until that time I had been blogging out on the net solo, generating my own traffic. Becoming part of a community made a major difference for me! He also helped me get my personal branding graphics, including my blog header, youtube, twitter, and Facebook so that they were one uniform message.

Caring That Goes The Extra Mile (or Kilometer in England)

Gavin Mountford is one of the most professional, honest, and high integrity teachers offering value out on the internet. You cannot go wrong aligning yourself with anything he has to offer. Why am I raving so much? I am illustrating that there are leaders, and then there are exceptional, extraordinary leaders, who go ABOVE and BEYOND to coach, train, provide value and to make people feel special, cared about and assisted. This is Gavin. Though he is just as busy as the rest of us, and probably more so, he has taken time to personally stay in touch by skype, by personal heartfelt notes, and other ways of letting me know he is in my corner. You cannot buy that kind of leadership. It’s either there or it’s not. It’s called AUTHENTICITY. I know you’ve all been around the opposite!

Time Management

If you are struggling with your daily productivity and time management, Gavin is your man! I have learned some tremendous tricks and strategies that have significantly impacted my productivity through my time studying with Gavin. The Double Your Online Productivity system is jammed packed with education to help you to stop struggling with being disorganized, late, distracted, overwhelmed, exhausted, and WILL get you back on track to utilizing your time extremely effectively! Here is the Time management course I highly recommend: Go to:

Aside from being an AMAZING Competitive  SKATEBOARDER..Matthew Neer is a dedicated Entrepreneur who is far, far ahead of most people online at mastering the skills necessary to be successful. After spending time with Matthew, I see it as two things: He has a high level of passionate dedication to what he is doing, with a “determination to be the best attitude”. Secondly , Matthew is excited about marketing, and is joyous in his approach..”It’s all good” he says..and I LOVE THAT!!!! Consequently he has created several six figure online enterprises. So we can learn much from this young -HOT entrepreneur.

How would you like to know the REAL DEAL on Search Engine Optimization, Internet Marketing and  the FASTEST WAY to get to the TOP of GOOGLE??

Matthew Neer is your man!

I sat down with this very SHARP marketer last fall..

Matthew says: “#1 Blogging Tip: Typically when most people come online and find out about blogging and WordPress they go on a massive hunt for the best possible free themes they can find.
What they don’t realize is that free themes are free for a reason, because most of them suck.

And while it may be a little bit of an extra expense I really do believe that if you just invest a little bit of money for a super high quality, premium WordPress theme in the long run you will get more exposure and more leads from your blog because it will be completely unique.

I highly recommend you check out http://matthewneer.com/elegantthemes

They have an extremely low priced membership, they have the best support forum I have ever come across and they come out with 2 new themes every single month at no extra charge to you.

The #1 mistake I made when I first started blogging that I would save other newbie bloggers from is Keyword Targeting.

It wasn’t until a year after I started blogging that I realize WordPress blogs can literally dominate the front page of Google in just a few hours.

For example, I am ranking on the first page of Google for multiple long tail company keyword phrases. Which result in me getting hundreds of hits to my blog every single day.

To do this, it is actually really simple. There are just a few key steps that you must follow, I’ll give you the basics right now.

  • First include your long tail keyword phrase in the title of your post and include it in the Permalink of your post.
  • Once you have that done, the secret is to use the keyword phrase again in the first 160 character of your blog post and hyperlink that keyword phrase because Google will pick up on that and rank you higher.
  • Then the rest is really just a matter of writing a really high quality article and including a keyword density of about 3%-8% throughout your whole article. This will rank you very well in Google every single time.

My favorite plugin has to be the Digg Digg plugin because it allows you to include the Tweet buttons, Facebook share buttons, and really just so much more to make it REALLY easy for other people to syndicate your blog.

However, the most practical plugin I have found by far is Google XML Sitemaps in reference to SEO because you can program that sucker to send updates to Google every single hour making your blog get indexed SUPER quickly!”

Check out Matthew’s Blog.

Here is my Video Interview with Matthew Neer that includes Specific Training on HOW to SEO YOUR POSTS!!

I read a fantastic article today on Linnea Kline’s Blog that was so good I wanted to post it here for my readers! Linnea is an excellent Social Media Teacher and Online Marketing Coach. I went to her blog today and started by reading one post that naturally led me to another, that led me to this one. If you have been struggling at all with content, I hope you enjoy this very rich article. http://linneakline.com/creating-compelling-content/

Here’s a nugget that has made a big difference for me. I have been blogging for over three years, and have been totally self taught. What I mean is, I went on my own and sought out what I wanted to learn.If you are an online marketer…you have too!! Congratulations!  I am a very persistent and determined person.  If you are an online marketer, you are too, Congratulations! You have to be, in order to be successful in mlm and online right?

I was part of a network marketing company in 2005 and witnessed my sponsor’s site go absolutely bonkers worldwide with traffic. Back then I was just soaking up ideas, and I remember asking him, how he did it. He said he simply put a ton of interesting and RELEVANT CONTENT on the site, for the spiders to find. I never forgot that. He showed me a few tricks as we went along.

Relevant: –adjective  :“bearing upon or connected with the matter in hand; pertinent: a relevant remark”.

So when I started my first self hosted blog in 2007, I got to the TOP OF GOOGLE IN ONLY A FEW WEEKS IN MY NICHE..because I remembered this simple, yet powerful idea. My first blog happened to be all about healthy water, so I related everything on my blog to that. When I did my articles, I tagged as many relavant words as I could possibly think of that would rank in the search engines on my subject. Then I used WordPress Stats for the 1-2 punch!!

Using the WordPress Stats Plugins was one of the best tools to help me gain valuable information in search engine optimization of my first blog, and subsequent blogs.

The WordPress Stats Plugin is My Favorite because it keeps me informed! As a professional marketer, it is extremely important to TRACK YOUR MARKETING and receive ongoing feedback and data so that you can make adjustments. As you will see in this video, one of the tools WordPress Stats has provided that makes life really sweet, is the daily keywords. Every day I am able to see what keywords people searched on the Search Engines, and then put those words back into my tags, articles etc!!Start doing this and watch what happens Another valuable piece of information is where your traffic is coming from. (I forgot to mention this in the video). I have all my blogs linked together, so this information is very valuable to me in terms of how much traffic is coming from which blog to which. Sometimes I can tweak one thing and see some good things happen!

I hope this video was helpful to you!

Some folks have been inquiring how I added my ebook photo to the optin form to the right. I was having a hard time finding what I wanted, so I decided to create it myself. This is what I came up with. You could always do the same thing with a simple text widget and html code, but this is an easy alternative for the person who does not want to mess with that.

I am using the free trial version of Camtasia Studio in this video, before I shell out the $299. I love it! I have recorded several videos for my sales funnel and I can see it is going to be extremely worth investing the money for our business.

This is a short tip this week, but I hope it is something you will all benefit from!

Welcome To Our New Blog!

by limitlesslaura

As you can see we are under construction, and will be for a bit. As this blog evolves you will see some fun things, and some great content. For now I will post a short bio about myself, Laura Morris. Come back and see us again soon as we design our new blog!                                                                       

I have been in the home based business arena in some capacity since 1983. Back then it was with a small calligraphy business when my kids were little, then with the legendary Mary Kay Cosmetics. Mary Kay was the place “I got bit by the bug” and was never the same!. From then on I was “psychologically unemployable, and though I tried to work outside the home a couple of times I knew..owning my own business, from home, and making my own money was the only way to fly!
I went on to make half hearted attempts while raising my 3 children at a quest for the perfect home based business. But I don’t think I really knew what it was myself. The truth was I was that I was treating the business like a HOBBY, and I was not willing to jump out on the edge and do what ever it took to make it work…So, it was paying me like hobby!
In 1998 I finally had a serious wake-up call that was “do or die” time..one of those look inside yourself moments, when you say to yourself “ok..this is it I MUST MAKE THIS WORK”.

In 1999 I answered an ad in the newspaper for a travel business, and my entire life turned around, more like up-side-down (well not yet, but it was about to). I went to work, REALLY WENT TO WORK. From then on I became a sponge of this industry, I found a mentor. I read everything I could get my hands on. I listened to tapes, watched videos,and attended business and personal development seminars. The most important thing I did overall was I became disciplined in DAILY MONEY MAKING ACTIVITIES ..I tracked the activities, and adjusted according to my results. I found that nothing stopped me, because FAILURE WAS NOT AN OPTION I have never thought of any other way.

I partnered with someone who believes in me, and it turned out he probably believed in me a lot more than I did at the time. My husband Larry comes from a 25 year background in the industry. He is Multi-Million Dollar Earner, is an accomplished speaker, trainer, and mentored many to five and six figure success.

Together we became an unstoppable team, because we wanted all the same things..We have gone on to create amazing things in especially the last 9 years. We have built relationships all over the world, and formed some fantastic organizations. Sometimes we have an unconventional way of doing things, but one thing you will learn about us is we are all about POSSIBILITIES. We work very hard to build long term, strong relationships with each person we work with. We won’t have it any other way. That is the strategy we teach, along with the simple daily disciplines of the business.

We believe strongly in teaching you how to rely on tools and systems, rather than “selling and explaining”. People don’t want to be sales people, and are not looking for sales people. Right? This frees you up to blossom as a marketer while you make money. We have many people making money on our team immediately, because we teach them our simple strategies, that NEVER FAIL. The key is consistency, activity and application.

Our key focus is especially on partnering with dynamic people and teaching highly sought after business strategies that move leaders to a much higher level in their business, beyond the traditional methods.

We work out of our home in Salt Lake City Utah, and have 6 grown children between us, and 5 grandchildren who we adore spending time with as much as we can. We would love to get to know you
