Basic Computer Skills Are a Must to Do Business on The Internet!

Now that we've gone through the demons, dragons, vultures and what a good support email should look like, it's time to take a look at the basic computer skills required to do business online. You don't have to be a computer geek or have programming experience but, you should have basic knowledge in the following areas.

You should know how to create text files and folders, copy-paste, save websites in your favourites through your browser and above all, be able to navigate through the internet easily. don't let all these things scare you away from establishing your business since they are all very simple to learn. After a while it all becomes second nature to you.
One more thing I would add is a log book or diary of some sort. I use a great little notebook called "Internet Directory" and it has saved my life on more than one occasion. You never can tell when you will experience a computer problem or God Forbid a system crash and if this should happen, your little notebook will have everything you need to get back on track. I store all of my login details in this book as well as on disk inside a file.

There are many free places online where you can go to learn these skills if you simply go to Google and search for them. You can even get a free website of your own complete with hosting if you put the right search terms in. Just try typing "Free Website" in the Google search bar and see what comes up. You can type in terms like "copy and paste", "learning text files and folders", "free learning videos", "free software" and the list goes on and on.

If your involved with a good affiliate program, they should have no problem at all pointing you in the right direction to learn what you need for the operation of your daily routine within your business. In fact, I strongly encourage you to not take no for an answer when dealing with any programs' support staff.

Now that I've given you a bit of "Food For Thought", go out and experiment with what I've shown you here today. Don't be afraid of your computer, master it

The internet is here to educate us in leaps and bounds. All we have to do is take the first step towards the end result.

Your Internet Affiliate Business Must Consider Your Needs First Conclusion!

Bottom line is this !

Through my first two articles in this series, you have seen examples of good and bad support replies. One which totally misleads you into spending more money by boosting someone elses' business and one that deals with every question asked by the member.

If your needs are being considered first and foremost, you should be able to tell by the reply you receive from the admin. support team. If they ask you to spend more money, you must ask yourself the following questions:

1} Were all of your questions answered or was it just a partial response?

2) Why weren't all your questions answered ? (Maybe they're hiding something and don't want you to know.)

3) Who will benefit the most by following the instruction presented?

4) Was it another sales pitch or a sincere reply to your concerns?

5) Did they make themselves available to further contact?

6) How long do you have to wait for contact from admin.? (More than 24 hours is too long!)


Really it's just common sense and, good protection technics which will lead you to the right decisions when considering how to work your business. This definitely includes Administration support and response time.

Think of your money as being the last dollar in your pocket and you will autimatically place yourself into practicing good protection technics.

If you are affiliated with a good business, nine times out of ten it will show through the support they provide you with. You will become more relaxed in your day to day business operations and feel good about promoting the business your involved in. If you have no pride in what you are doing or, have any doubts, get out of it now! Nobody can promote a product successfully if they don't believe in what they are selling.
Do your research on the product and, make sure it's right for you. A good product will leave you feeling good about it and, the support behind the product will prove you made the right decision!

I sincerely hope this series has given you some serious things to consider and, will contribute to your making the proper decisions before taking the ultimate plunge into your new business venture.

Part2: Your Internet Affiliate Business Must Consider Your Needs First !

This is the second part of my previous article entitled: "Your Internet Affiliate Business Must Consider Your Needs First ! "


In my previous article I gave you 2 examples of what kind of response you could get from the support staff of your internet opportunitys' head office. While one was a fictional response, it really was an excellent example of what you could expect if you're in the wrong opportunity.

Since I don't want to be repetitive with my articles anymore than I have to, I will leave it up to you to look at the first article associated with this post to find the original request for support from an actual member. I will however, post the first (Fictional) support response here to show just how bad and insulting it really is. Here's the original post of that dialogue:

Hello Edna,

We are sorry to hear about your neighbour and hope it all turns out alright.
You have asked for my link so that you can place your husband and son under me. No problem Edna, you will find all my links attached to this email in a separate folder ! Sign them up ASAP so they can start earning right away!

You also asked if there was anything else you should join. To answer this truthfully and with only your protection in mind, we strongly urge you, to upgrade to the highest level you can possibly afford. This will prevent any of your downline from moving ahead of you and your commission percentages will increase automatically to reflect your upgraded level status. In fact, you should tell Steven and Jason to do the same !

See you on the call tomorrow and don't forget to open the attachment for my links !

To your success, Jack

End of Support Reply!

I guess Jack must truly believe whatever he suggests will take place. Especially since the original request strongly indicated that the author was willing to do whatever he wanted.

This is the biggest, as well as, one of the most common mistakes a newbie will make when first getting into an online business. Never ever ask what else you can join when writing out a support request! By doing so, you are immediately opening the door for a vulture to slip in and pick that credit card to death!

All Jack managed to do with his reply was to get you to sign up to his other hidden links in order to profit from the authors vulnerability. Did he answer her questions or, actually help Edna ? Was he truly putting her needs ahead of his? Did he show her the best path to prosperity?

The answer to all of the above is no and here's why!



When Jack received the original email, there were only 3 questions that needed answering which are listed here:

  1. Maurice, now I joined the free marketing tools, what else do I have to join?
  2. Can you put me under your link or if this is not possible, Steven and our son Jason will join under you.
  3. Sorry I told you this all. But Maurice can I contact you again if I have any questions?

Question 1 wasn't answered since all Jack did was point her to his links through his attachment without even mentioning what the opportunities were that might exist there. (What else do I have to join?)


Question 2 wasn't answered since it was just used to steal money from her credit card!


Question 3 ! Well that question wasn't answered simply because it was totally ignored in his reply as well as, it wasn't even Maurice who replied! (Maurice can I contact you again if I have any questions?)


After reading these 2 associated articles, what kind of support would you prefer?


I hope I have opened your eyes up enough to see that you do not ask what you can do for support but, do in fact ask support to do for you!


Beware of the wolves out there! They travel in packs!


As I have stated in the past, good opportunities that provide excellent support and marketing tools do actually exist!
You only have to be very well informed through your research to find one.


As usual, I invite you to leave your comment/comments below!


To your success with warmest regards,

Your Internet Affiliate Business Must Consider Your Needs First !

As you begin to venture out into the internet searching for your ultimate affiliate business, there are some extra precautions you should take to test the sincerity of the people you are going to be dealing with and relying on to help you succeed.

To better illustrate exactly what I mean by this I will offer you a scenario where an internet affiliate member is emailing their home office with a request for support . I will also show you two possible responses. One will be an authentic email and the other a possible reply based on my past experiences with different affiliate programs.

After reading this article, I invite you to leave a comment and share any related experiences you may of had with those who may be following my blog as you are.

I will begin with the request for support email as follows:

Email Subject: Maurice Thank you so much !

Maurice thank you so much for introducing me to LGT conference training calls. I am so surprised how nice and helpful everybody is. Specially you Maurice, it is such a pleasure talking to you. I hope you could understand me properly, since a lot of people here in the south ( Georgia) think I have a terrible accent. I am so happy to get all the support from a lot of members and we (Steven, Jason and I) are passing this hospitality on to our members, if they are getting in contact with us. Maurice, now I joined the free marketing tools, what else do I have to join? Can you put me under your link or if this is not possible, Steven and our son Jason will join under you. It will take me a while to get completely into LGT, but I will promote it to our members, since I think it is really incredible. I will join as much as I can, am waiting of their classes in March. What a difference this whole F5M MC made in our life, we start trusting people again, since we had so bad experience for almost 3 years, but who did'nt! Cannot join the call tonight, have to go to my neighbor, it is such a sad story, he was driving home to Milledgeville from Macon where he is working, it was raining and a car hit him on the motorcycle really bad, the car was speeding, and he will be probably paralized, he came out of the coma today, its so sad, such a nice family. Don't know what will happen to him in the future, but we are all here for the family since they are our friends. Sorry I told you this all.But Maurice can I contact you again if I have any questions? And I am sure it will be!!! Send us your link and Steven will sign up under you at LGT, if it helps you. Thanks again, it is so nice to have so many nice friends araound, we Europeans are not used to this at all, but we have not been in Europe for the last 26 years, I have to tell you once about it.Thank you so much Maurice for introducing me to LGT and for your help.Talk to you soon, see you tomorrow evening, will join your conference call at 8pm EST ??? Have a nice evening

Edna

The example above is an actual email I received from a member who gave me permission to publish it here in my Blog. Their names have been changed to protect their true identities for obvious reasons.

1'st Possible Response From Home Office !

Hello Edna,

We are sorry to hear about your neighbour and hope it all turns out alright.

You have asked for my link so that you can place your husband and son under me. No problem Edna, you will find all my links attached to this email in a seperate folder ! Sign them up ASAP so they can start earning right away!

You also asked if there was anything else you should join. To answer this truthfully and with only your protection in mind, we strongly urge you, to upgrade to the highest level you can possibly afford. This will prevent any of your downline from moving ahead of you and your commission percentages will increase automatically to reflect your upgraded level status. In fact, you should tell Steven and Jason to do the same !

See you on the call tomorrow and don't forget to open the attachment for my links !

To your success,
Jack

The First response was to show you the reality of what could happen to you if your not careful.

2'nd Possible Response And The One I Gave:

Hello Edna !

It's very nice that you offer to have your whole family join under me but, why do this when you can have them join under you now? Do you realize that if you should need to upgrade to paid status in the future, it would make more sense to have them under you?
That way, if they were to follow you to the upgrade you would get $10.00 from each of them. This would bring your yearly package down from $39.00 to $19.00. Why not keep it in the family if you can.

Also, I can see why you would want your son to get involved in the business but, I don't understand or see any benefit to your husband spending any money to join unless you plan on divorcing in the near future! Please think of it this way. One business to market is half the cost of marketing 2 and one third the cost of marketing 3.

Edna, you can contact me anytime you like ! The best way is to watch for me on skype and call or chat me up. I recommend chatting first just in case I'm on another call . I'm really glad you enjoyed the class today and I look forward to seeing you on the call tomorrow night. If you really stop to think about it Edna, John has been looking after and sponsering all of the F5M-MC members.

How many times have you heard him say in the Sat. special meetings?"Look in your back office in the Marketing Tools Section. Everything you need to learn how to promote your business is there!"

Always here to service your requests with warmest regards,

Maurice Bernier (Moe Millionaire)

Some names of the characters in this article have been changed to protect their rights. Mine has not because I know I speak the truth and am very proud of what I am trying to accomplish through this blog!

Newbies Need Education Before Starting An Online Business!

If you are a newbie, you will need training and education before even thinking of joining an affiliate program or starting your own Internet business. Many people are under the impression that all you have to is sign up for a good affiliate program and that's it! Now the money will start rolling in as they promised. Absolutely nothing could be further from the truth!

You need to educate yourself and learn how to effectively market your product. Just because you have a free website doesn't mean everyone is going to go crazy and start visiting it. You have to get the word out just like you would with any successful business. Do you think because it's online, no further work needs to be done?WRONG!
You have to spend hours a day educating yourself to the point where everything you do becomes second nature. Not only that but, without the education and training you are leaving yourself open to those demons and vultures we previously mentioned!

You can build a successful well established online business with the proper guidance but, you are doomed to hop from one opportunity to the other without the education required to market your product; not to mention the fact that your pocket book will suffer a huge decline as a result.

There are lots of good free advertising resources for you to benefit from and, you truly should take advantage of them during the learning process . To truly succeed, you have to be willing to sacrifice your time spent with family and friends, your natural desire to be lazy as well as the negative people who you might be currently surrounded by, in order to accomplish the goals you have set for yourself.

I invite and encourage you to follow this blog for more guidance on protecting your pocket book while journeying through your successful Internet adventure!

With best wishes for success and warmest regards,

Maurice Bernier (Moe Millionaire)

The Internet Is Killing Our Seniors !

Many of our seniors are currently joining the internet and it's killing them financially!

Our seniors are to be treasured and treated with kindness . The last thing that should be taking place on the internet, is the vicious attack on their pocket books simply because they don't know what kind of trash really exists in this virtual world of ours..

A perfect example of this is a friend of mine whose husband was recently conned into forking out $6,000.00 on his credit card in exchange for being taught how to simply build a website. Our seniors changed our diapers and fed us as toddlers, taught us right from wrong as we were growing into adulthood, and supported us with undying love and respect no matter what we did.

Is this the way we are choosing to thank them?

No way! We all owe them too much to let this happen! Please help me stop this abuse of power that is currently taking place.
Next time you see or have contact with a senior over the internet, treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve as we do here !

This article is dedicated to my friend Stacey !
Thanks for putting your time in . We all love you dearly for it!

Warmest Regards,

It's A Dangerous Internet For Newbies !

Todays internet is a very dangerous place for newbies to hang out !
The number one reason for this is the vultures that are currently circling above who are waiting to pounce. Oh how they are so eager to snatch up your cash and run you into bankruptcy .

If your one of those newbies beware and take special notice now !

As soon as you open your first email address, you are opening the door to these vial creatures . They are like demons in the night who hide under your bed just waiting for you to fall asleep . Waiting for the moment they can take over your sole in order to gain full access and control over every aspect of your life !

Right now your probably thinking, this guy is scaring the crap out of me ! What in the world have I gotten myself into ? I can't go outside . The vultures will get me and I'll go bankrupt ! If I do go outside and manage to get home with some money left in my pocket, I won't be able to sleep nights because those vial creatures will finish off the job that the vultures couldn't !

Well first of all, let me apologize for scaring the crap out of you if I have managed to do so. I just want you to know in advance that the internet isn't necessarily the answer to all your dreams of success and financial rewards . It can be for some but, it is definitely not for everyone .

Secondly, there are legitimate businesses online today with proven track records that will indeed create wealth for the average individual as long as they are willing to put the time in to successfully learn and apply the techniques they have been taught !

If you are one of those newbies who have those required skills and have the determination required to succeed, then be my guest and join me on your new path to success and prosperity.

You will definitely not find any vultures or creatures of the night if you decide to follow in my footsteps and, I give you my word that I have your best interests at heart !

Please follow this blog closely for a series of related topics that will open your eyes to where you might or might not be headed on the internet .

Warmest regards,

Moe-Millionaire
