Twitter Tutorial

While doing my homework on Twitter today I ran into this tutorial.  I want to stress again how important it is that you jump on the Twitter bandwagon now.  Just as Facebook and Youtube have exploded with followers,  Twitter is soon to follow suit and in fact, is already on its way.  This is the groundfloor Marketing opportunity you’ve been waiting for.

This is an excellant tutorial.  I couldn’t have done it better myself.  The second video is almost an hour long, so grab a snack and your favorite drink before settling in.  You won’t be disappointed.  You will be set up on Twitter and ready to “tweet” and gain followers by the time  you finish the videos.   ;)

If you don’t have time to watch the first two tutorials, then at least watch the third one.  That should be all the inspiration you need to convince you to spend the time watching the first two!

I guarantee  if you watch these videos, you’ll come away comfortable with your new Twitter account.

Position yourself now to take advantage of the tens of millions of new Twitter tweeters destined to come aboard in the next few years.  And, they will come…just look at Facebook and Youtube.

I want to position myself as a teacher and someone who adds value to peoples lives.  What better value could there be than to give someone the tools to be financially independant?

Financial Freedom will flow to me as I unselfishly give it to others.

Happy “tweeting”…

Twitter is HOT

Has anyone  noticed that it’s all about Twitter these days?  When it comes to conversation about social networking, Twitter is the attention getter, the rising star.  And, it’s rising fast.  Even President Obama has a Twitter account and a very large following.

So, what’s all the fuss about?  Twitter is a relatively new social networking site that allows it’s users to follow their family, friends and co-workers with short “tweets.”  The “tweets” are limited to 140 characters to keep it quick and frequent.  If you go over 140 characters, the send button is disabled and you’ll have to start over.

All that’s needed to use Twitter is an Internet Connection and or a mobile phone and the ability to text.

After you register, sign in to your homepage  Your homepage gives you all the options you need to navigate the site.  If you click on the settings tab, you can even customize your homepage with a background of your choice from your own library or you can use one of their provided backgrounds.

Some of the features of Twitter include:

  1. the ability to block anyone you do not want following you.
  2. a favorites tab on your homepage to collect your favorite “tweets.”
  3. a tab to keep everything private and not allow public viewing of your “tweets.”
  4. direct link tab to connect with someone you are following privately.  Only you and the recipient can view this tweet.  You can only send private messages to a person who is following you.
  5. a replies tab…used to reply to a previous tweet.  When you use this feature, @username will appear before your tweet. 
  6. a badge to place on your social networking site or blog to show your updates.
  7. the ability to seach for friends by name or username, import friends from other networks, or invite them with a friendly email. 

There are more features, but these are the prominent ones…the ones you will use the most. 

Twitter has plenty of helpful info on their site to get you going, but if you want more ideas or maybe you have an idea you want to share I found this site to be excellent to fill in the gaps.

So the burning question is…”why use Twitter?”  Because of it’s ease of use…(you only need a username and password…no credit card :) ) networking has never been easier.  You can drive customers to your website by announcing new products etc. and tweeting your link or place a link to your blog and gain new readers as well as just making new friends.  There are endless possible applications for it’s use.

Attention all Internet Marketers….Dave Nicholson said Twitter is the preferred site for Internet Marketers.  Wow, a place to hang out with the Internet’s best Marketers?   Need I say more?!  

Come and follow me on Twitter and let’s share ideas, thoughts and blogs.  Sign up and follow me here.   http://twitter.com/KathyDobson  

I’m still learning the ropes, so let’s learn  together!    

Happy Tweeting!

Machu Picchu

I needed to post a video….part of what I am learning. I thought I would share my dream…my dream of going to Machu Picchu and Peru. What a magical, mystical place. How could anyone not want to go here? It is said that anyone who travels to Machu Picchu comes home a changed person.

First Class Webinar

Had our first class webinar today.  I think it’s more fun for those of us not located in the UK.  We get to hear all those British accents…and in my opinion that just adds to the fun… :)

It was amazing that for the most part, the questions that were asked were the very same questions I had floating about in my head.  Not only was it educational, but he gave us links to all the other student blogs….and, that was the best part. ;)   I have already been to every one of them.  Obviously there are some students light years ahead of me in technical skills, I just need to be patient with myself.

I have already made an awesome connection and new friend from the list of students….Gayla.  We are the same age (which was amazing cause I thought I was the senior citizen here)…. live within 100 miles of one another and basically have the same passions for Internet Marketing and Metaphysics.  The world is really a small place isn’t it?  Anyway, her blog address is http://www.gaylarrkilbride.com/.   Check her blog out…it’s lots of fun to read.  I’ll be following it for sure.

The Webinar was great inspiration for me as was the trip through all the student blogs.  I plan on going through each and every blog and signing up to follow them.  No doubt each one will offer something different in the way of insights and wisdom and I want to digest it all.

One of the first items I want to add to my blog is color and  ~movement~ in the way of pictures and videos.  My blog is a little on the flat boring side right now and I feel like that will give it the depth it needs….I just have not had time to take the tutorial and implement them.  That’s next on my agenda.

I must tell you that the webinar and access to the student blogs has reinvigorated me.  It’s almost as though it relit the fire that brought me here in the first place.  I really feel success within me.  And, that’s a good thing…. ;)

Sweet dreams,

Multiple streams of income…

I recently read that Mother Earth’s energy has increased and because of that we will feel particularly tired as we re-align with this new energy.  No wonder I have felt drained lately!  Seriously, there were a couple of days at work this past week when my tiredness was really getting in the way.  Normally I am a very  high energy person.  Can’t wait till I am totally adjusted to this new energy.

Don’t forget to move your clocks forward tonight before you go to bed if you are in a time zone that honors daylight savings.  I love the extra hour of light in the evening, but once again it’s a killer adjusting my body clock to the new time.  Normally I get up around 5:30 in the morning, but this week it’s really going to be 4:30!  I get tired thinking about that!

I want to talk briefly this morning about how important it is to have many different streams of income set up if you plan on making a fulltime living from the internet.  In fact that’s a Principle that applies whether you are making your income on or off the net.

It’s very dangerous to have only one stream of income these days.  It’s sort of like playing Russian Roulette with your finances.  Most families have at least two incomes…..just to meet bills.  The Internet gives us the opportunity to set up multiple streams of income right from our home computer.  It doesn’t get any better than that…does it?

For example….let’s say you are a successful Ebay seller, but that’s your only stream.  Ebay decides to change some rules and suddenly overnight you have no income stream.  Your one income stream has dried up.  If this had been one of many income streams for you, you may have felt the bump, but because you prepared for this possibility and set up multiple streams of income you have time to adjust.

Rober G. Allen says there are basically two types of income.  One is linear and the other is residual.

A linear income is one where you only get paid once for your hours worth of work.

With Residual income you continue to get paid for months or years into the future…and sometimes for a lifetime!

Wealthy people know this secret and always have a percentage of their income as residual.  Residual income will give you FREEDOM.  And, for me, that’s the magic word….FREEDOM.

The power of residual income is that it keeps flowing and flowing.  Residual income follows you…no matter where you are.  That’s precisely why I am taking this course.  To learn the different avenues of residual income that the Internet offers.

Make no mistake….this is the new gold rush.  There are millions of new Net-preneurs coming aboard everyday.  Position yourself now to give them the tools they need to be a success.

My next post will cover some of the different kinds of residual streams that you can use to profit from the Internet.

Remember, it’s all about gaining freedom and peace of mind….

Celebrating your success,

Kathy
