(NOTE!  This evening's goodies are awaiting you below but if you don't like 'em, please do unsubscribe at - thanks!)

| oOo ==> Zero cost webinar - Social Offline System (Closing TONIGHT)
WHY:  Super cool webinar by Dr. Ben on how to create a thriving
| offline business via social media services....
| description below (and closing TONIGHT!)

Forgive my lack of perkiness, but wow, I
had an extremely soul-searing character-building day.
Let's simply say that I had a *massive* family
discussion with the kids about how things are
changing *today* - it went well, but yep,
astonishingly..... draining.
That's not what I'm mourning however.
What I also realized today is that bunches of
my business colleagues take 'way better care
of me than my real-life friends.
And you know something?
Bigtime.  Massive time.   It all goes back to
the fair-weather-friend time.
Me, if I'm needed, I'm *there*.   No questions asked.
It's something about which I'm extremely proud.
But apparently, the reverse is not true.
Which is okay, mind you.    But I cannot pretend it
doesn't hurt - it's agony right now.
However, I *will* give myself permission to get
past it....and *I* will get past it.   Tomorrow I'll
dive into everything but for now....yep.....I'm
going to honor....*me* (I'm writing this at 1pm
Sunday morning; when I'm done, I'm shutting
off my business and taking care of myself).
You know, I'm crying as I write this....but 
it's a *good* cry - when you lose things you had
loved, it's good to mourn it.  
And then let it *go*.
Bet you didn't expect THIS email from me,
aye?  :)
And onto today!
This Offline/FB goodie is closing...  TONIGHT.

What's that?  You want Video?
Well then!
I'm going to tell you a word and I want to know...
How do you *feel*?
Here goes:
Stop hiding!  :)
See, the thing about video...is once you know
*how* to create compelling calls to action/engage/
etc, your conversions could increase beautifully!
If you're like I used to be...and HATE video,
I think you're going to enjoy the following!
I learned about this last week - Joey pinged
me on FB to ask if I'd be willing to check out
his launch.  Well, the thing was... I was soo
busy getting my own launch ready, I, well,
..... didn't.  :(
But!  I *was* able to check it out this afternoon,
and can definitely recommend it!
| oOo ==> Dozens of easy-to-follow how-tos
| http://awpt.co/RaW6A?e=
This is an A-Z how-to for all (as in ALL)
aspects of video marketing, ranging from 
knowing your viewer to grabbing attention
to showcasing the solution to making
the offer to  storytelling to final editing to
over-the-shoulder to....
But it doesn't end there!
Included are tutorials for Video Creation
Theory like:
"This module is all about writing script for your videos. You will learn the exact structure and process I go through every time I create a video. These rules apply to sales videos, information videos, coaching modules, review videos, or anything else you can think of. "
to even (get this) Film School!
But what I REALLY liked was how Joey
used these techniques to connect with 
Alex Jeffreys (big huge marketer) and
get onto his radar.
THAT, my friend....is *powerful*.
So if grabbing *the* powerful techniques
from the guy who runs Jefferies' video
marketing appeals to you....
| oOo ==> By a professional videographer!

Or marketing?
Recently, I was asked something that
caused me to tell you about this particular
Have you ever wondered just what time-proven
WP theme that vast majority of marketers use?
It gives you:
|  ==> Launch Funnels, Membership sites, more!
| http://awpt.co/aKjAs?e=
I built:
with it.
Heck, *all* my sales pages use it!   And not just me...

*Bunches* of high powered marketers.
Here's why: 
It comes with a HUGE number of shortcodes
that make creating blocks of nifty text....easy.
But more so...
It automatically gives you bunches of sales
page templates, so you can easily incorporate
* videos
* optins
* sidebar
* no sidebar
Stuff like:
* Customize Your Sales Copy With Their Shortcode System
Never before has it been so easy to create high converting sales pages that look great too. Easily drop in testimonial boxes, order boxes, buttons, headlines and more with our point and click interface
* Build Sales Letters, Bonus Pages, One-Time Offer Pages & More
Create sales letters & offer pages based on proven & tested designs, so you can give your pages a boost before you even start writing your sales copy!
* Create Timed/One-Off Launches
You can use OptimizePress to conduct full-scale product launches. You can set your pages to "go live" on the times and dates of your choosing, so your launch process almost becomes hands-off, and with our social sharing systems, traffic to your pages should grow on autopilot
Rumor has it  a new version will be coming out
in 2013....so I would *think* that will cause
a price increase as well!   
I bought OP back last year when I started
to take my marketing seriously....and can
highly recommend it for you as well.
(and because it's a theme, it plays nicely
with WP sales plugins too!)
Thus, if you're looking for a grand theme
to make your marketing easier....
|  ==> Mobile compatible too!

Don't forget this mornings:
In other news, were you aware last week that
GooglePlus changed the layout?  I wrote about it over

Did YOUR Google Plus Profile Get Ickyfied Last Week?  Here's How To Fix!

I also include links to free PSDs to fix that issue too.


Got lots to share but first:

Be sure to read down to the Source Code
Goldmine info...I give you 2 samples for free!

And today is St. Patricks Day!  If you celebrate it,
hope it's a grand fun time!  I came across the
following trivia goodies:



http://news.discovery.com/adventure/travel/st-patricks-traditions-slideshow.htm  (green river?)


And onto today!

Have you heard how social proof drives bunches
of sales online?  

For example, let's say that you visit
an online site....doesn't the written reviews have
an effect on whether you decide to buy or not?
It's one of the powers of Social Media...people see
that their friends bought and recommended a product,
or follow a tweet about a product and BAM!   More
and more  people become intrigued to see....if they
should buy.   
Amazon is one site that does this beautifully,
as does Epinions and other shopping sites!
Sure would be nice to add this review/social
proof ability easily to your sites, aye?
Well then!

This earlier crossed my desk and if you're
selling ANYTHING from your sites online...
oooo  you'll want to read about it. 
Because this goodie is a WP plugin that
lets your buyers use their 

* FB
* Twitter
* Google+
* LinkedIn
* MORE! 
to leave YOU reviews!
And get this - the reviews are also
SEOed!  What I personally love about this is it integrates
the 'rich snippets' info that Google loves seeing....
If you're not familiar with Rich Snippets,
I wrote about 'em at
And Rich snippets is just *1* thing the Social Review
Engine does for you.
| oOo ==> Social Review *Engine* ==> Social Proof!

Another bonus which you'll love is the viral
component - not only can people send YOUR
products "Amazon-styled" reviews, BUT:
*  You can give reviewers 'rewards' 
*  You can build a buyers' list FROM the reviewers
*  You can *choose* which reviews go viral (reputation management,
done for you!)
*  More!
So if you have ANYTHING you're selling
online....this product not only makes it
superDeDuper simple to increase your
social proof, but it also increases your SEO
as well!
| oOo ==> Social Review *Engine* ==> Social Proof!

Don't forget yesterdays:

Sometimes....images are burned within your
mind that you'll never forget.
Such was my experience back in August of 2012
(before my ankle fell off!) when I sat in the Earn
1KaDay audience, and watched Mario Brown
give his talk.
The first thing he did was pantomime being
slapped across the face as he started to explain
his childhood experiences.
Riveting, that was...utterly *riveting*.
See, Mario is slightly taller than me (I'm 5'3.5", and
he's about 17 feet tall).  Or at least he seems that
way (here, you can see a picture of us over at
Yep, I know, we're very close in height.  Anywhos!
Seeing him slap himself and then roll to the ground....
Like I said, *riveting* ==> see the screenshot at
Now, Mario is one of the most interesting success
stories around - he came to this country not speaking
the language well whatsoever....5 years ago.
Only 5 years!  
But here's what REALLY stood out to me - Mario
talked about picking a niche and dominating it.
Right after that talk, I fired up my laptop and bought
the domainname it inspired....and on the plane ride
home, did something truly, well, career-changing for me.
I'll tell you more about that in Chapter 2, but
did want to alert you to Mario's May 2013 Event:
==> Frank Kern, Mike Filsaime Keynotes

I wrote about it too over at

Online Marketing Mastery Event by Mario Brown, May 2nd to 5th 2013, Will I See YOU there?

You can see the video too!
What's that?

You prefer FB?

Well then!  Don Wilson just released his
FB Timeline Control thingee over at

This is a fantastic collection of 65
done-for-you Professional Timeline covers....ready
to be used at a moment's notice.
