Before you click – READ THIS

With all the spoof emails, phishing emails, and more and more people trying to get your info on to their list – thought I would write before you click – Read this

Today I got in my yahoo email and thought I show you what to do if you get an email like this and what I do when I get these.

paypalemailThere are a few things that I want to point out in this email and the first is the Paypal logo – this can be easily copied and put in emails.

The 2nd thing is the Dear – most of the time people will use customer and Paypal knows your name and if it is not your name then it’s not from Paypal.

judgingcatNEVER CLICK THE LINK in an email like this – the first thing you should do is go to your Paypal account and see if any of the info is true.  You can look it up by the transaction ID, the dollar amount, the date of the transaction and after seeing that this is a fake email – then this is what I do to help Paypal, credit card companies, banks emails catch these people.

In yahoo you can click on more at the top of your emails and click on view header and copy all that info and then click on forward and copy that into in the email and send it to spoof@paypal.com.  With this header info, this give their fraud department something to use to help track down where this came from.

Now in gmail, in an email getting the header info is little more tricky I think.  When you are in the email to the right of the replay/forward the more button you are looking for is there – a drop down menu.  From that drop down menu you can just click on report phishing or you can get the full header by clicking on showing original.

Hope that this info helps you to be a little more careful before you click – read this and remember that this is the time of the year that more and more of this will pop up in your emails.

Clean up Your Gmail Folders on Auto

Years ago, I wrote a blog post on how to organize your gmail with filters and I googled and found the blog post and if you have not learned how to do this – you can read about it here  How would you like to organize your emails in your gmail account?

WWRN_Email_091013Well today I want to show you how to clean up your gmails on Auto and if you are like me that have a folder created for each mailer that you are a member of.  Well it can be a bit overwhelming and a never ending job keeping them cleaned out.

First before you create this new filter login to each site and see if the emails can be read on site and yes this will be time consuming but you are sure going to thank me in the long run.  I have found that not all sites will give you a choice to read on site and stop the emails and if they don’t this is what you can do.

Go to your gmail and click on one of the emails like you are going to create a filter and this is actually what you are doing – a new filter for the same file.  Once you know that you can click on the site and get your credits – set up your filter like in the above blog post just click the delete this time.

After you have all that clicked then you can save this filter and what it does is keeps that folder clean and sends it to trash on auto – pretty cool huh.  The only thing that I have seen is that my trash really feels up and I do have to empty it more often but at least I don’t have hundreds of folders full of emails.

Let me know how this works for as I’m loving this because going in a folder and deleting over 8,9 or 10,000 out of the folder takes forever it seems.  You are not only spending the time to clean them out – then you have empty the trash which is also time consuming.

Your Attitude + Your Choices = Your Life

It’s funny how things happen in the day that lead you in a different direction and this is one of them as I know I needed to do a blog post here.  I commented on another blog and decided to expand more as this sure does sum things up YOUR ATTITUDE + YOUR CHOICES = YOUR LIFE

Now you should go back and reread that and really think about it as I remember one of the first things that I was told when I got divorced and thought my world fell apart.  A friend told me this

cf8a79ed47c43158efe1152fe0f0175d

That has stuck with me over the years and when things don’t go the way that I think they should I remember this quote.  This not only goes for your personal life but also for your business.

Things are never going to be perfect, things are never going to go the way that YOU think they should go but you stay focused, stay positive and try ONE more time – you just might find what you have been looking for.

How to Stay Organized With Your Traffic Exchanges

computercatHere is another one of those questions that I get asked over and over – most that know me also know that I belong to many traffic exchanges (TEs) and I’m going to let the secret out on how to stay organized with your traffic exchanges.

If you have joined many TEs like I have, you have tried spreadsheets, bookmarks and Speed Dial just to name a few I tried to stay organized.  Well did you know there is a site (tool I call it) out there that will show you how many unassigned credits you have at your sites, how many assigned credits you have without logging into all the sites you are a member of.

Now before I let the secret out of the bag let me tell you what else this ONE site/tool does for me.  It also tells me how many banner impressions I have assigned and unassigned.  Yea, it will tell you how many text impressions assigned and unassigned.  Pretty cool, huh?  No more chasing around to the sites to find out – now couldn’t you benefit from a site/tool like this.

fatcatmoneyWell I haven’t told you the best part yet – do you know how much you have earned in commissions on all the TEs you are a member of without chasing around again to see – well  for years I sure didn’t but now I know and I know it by signing into this ONE site/tool.  This site/tool also tells me the payout amounts for each site I have added and yea you can even login from this site/tool (once you have it set up) and do what you need to do. (assign credits, banner impressions, text impressions and even put in a payout request if that is required)

Wouldn’t a site/tool like this be a dream come true and save you soooooooo much time – you can see where you need to surf, where you need assign credits, where you need to request your commissions or know where you NEED to surf all from ONE site/tool.  Ok this site/tool is call TE Command Post.

Shocked you huh?  I know, it did me years ago when I first joined and I know like you – I never took the time to really look the site over as I was too busy chasing around trying to keep up with all the TEs that I was a member of.  One of my BIGGEST MISTAKES!

Now I know most of you surfers know about Commando Surf and the benefits of TECP for that reason but NOW you know the rest of the story.  Believe me it is worth taking the time to sign in and add the TEs referral id and your login info.  Just simply login and click on Traffic Exchanges – you can either start on page one OR just type in the TE that you want to add.  Do you have to join them all – the answer is know – just add the one that you are already a member of – that is the best starting point.

tecp banner

One more tip as there are lot of TEs listed and to narrow the ones down on the pages – on the first page look for this Only show traffic exchanges where I don’t have my referral ID entered.  There is a checkbox by it – you should check that and then the sites that you have entered will not keep showing – AGAIN another awesome benefit of this site/tool.

Ok now you know How to Stay Organized With Your Traffic Exchanges – look forward to seeing you in my downline and if you have any questions just message me.

Are You A Doer?

doer3So many people ask me all the time how can I do so much in a day, week, etc. and it’s because of a class that I took years ago and the ONE thing that I learned from that class is this quote  “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.”
Benjamin Franklin

With that in mind, are you a doer?
You might thing you are as for years, I thought I was too and then I realized that I kept putting off things, started making a list of things to do, and as I have gotten older even started thinking I’ll do it tomorrow and then CRS the next day because my brain forgot where it stored all that info – thus why the to do list lol.

When I first started working online, I had to train myself to “just do it” and not put things off otherwise they are not going to get done.  It’s so easy to stop what you are doing and maybe yak on Skype or while you are surfing – join a new site and get sidetracked.

Now are you a doer?  When you get a Skype notice, do you stop what you are doing and answer it or do you stay focused on what you were doing.
Do you join a new site, click the verification email and never set it up or even forget that you join this new site.  This is just a few examples of things I hear and have dealt with.

horseblinders2Well, this is just my opinion sometimes I feel that I have to put on blinders (you know the kind that they put on horses so that they stay focused – well some days you just have to put YOUR blinders on and stay focused.  This is how I get done what I get done – when I have something that I want or needs to get done then I grab my blinders and just get yer done.

So think about that the next time that your Skype notification light goes off – stay focused and be a doer – finish doing what you were doing and then mark it off your list of things to do before answering your message.

The next time that you sign up for a new site – finish the job – read the terms, get your downline builder filled in (ohhhhhh don’t whine – just do it – the day that you get 10 – 15 referrals in a row – you will thank me and yes  that does happen) then get your ads set up, your banners set up, your text set up, your profile set up, click the buttons on the site – you will be amazed at what you can learn if your just be a doer and READ about the site that you just join offers.

When you go to a new store or gift shop – you look around, check out all the things that they offer before making a decision to buy something, use that store or gift shop, or tell anyone else about what you found – these sites that you join should be no different.

Another thing that I have also learned that has help me be a doer is a daily schedule – no I’m not saying at 9AM  – I do this and at 10AM I do that – I’m saying a daily list of things that YOU need to do run your business and this will vary with each person.

Yea I know what you are thinking but I’m not a site owner so this don’t apply to me – you are wrong – if you are thinking this way then you need to go backtrack and think about “your why”

why2Well looks like I need to stop this post as I gave you enough to ponder here – I do think that after you think about it you will know the answer to this blog post …are you a doer

5 Things That Motivate Me

So often I get asked How do I put in all the hours that I do and don’t I ever get tired – well thought I would try and do a post about the 5 things that motivate me.  Actually, as I was preparing for this post I had a hard time narrowing it down to 5 as I so love working online that much.

change2As most of you know, I love helping others and that is probably the most enjoyable thing and believe me my number one that motivates me.  You see there is nothing more rewarding than having someone in your downline come to you and tell you how they are succeeding for the first time – their first referral, their first sale, etc. That will sure gets my adrenalin going and I want to help more and more and more.

With that in mind, I would have to say the 2nd would be being asked for help.  Why would that motivate me – it tells me that people have been watching, listening and trust me to even ask and that by far goes a long way in today’s world.  Do I know all the answers – NO but I do know enough people online that when I don’t know – I can ask around and will find an answer for you.

happycatSpeaking of trust, the same thing happens when I see people supporting my sites, promoting the sites.  You all have no idea what I look at behind the scenes at the sites and it’s not what the site brought in for money wise today – it’s who joined, where did they join from and why did they join.  All that info is important to me and motivates me to keep going, keep doing what I’m doing as it’s working – now that is motivation for me.

Now I know most of you reading this are wondering how I can know the why when someone joins that site – well this is just me but I have taken the time to set up a series of emails to new members and they get sent out about ever three days.  This is a teaching series that I have done up explaining the site, suggesting tools they will be needing etc. and from the response to those emails tells me what the person is looking for and how I can help them even more.

AND last but not least, most of you know by now that I love quotes, I love finding the positive out of everything – so yes I find motivation in reading quotes and wanted to share some of my favorites and believe me this was hard to narrow down to a few lol

Text Ads Work

Over the years as I have been doing internet marketing, I see that most people don’t utilize all the resources out there for advertising and promoting and there is one that is so overlooked.  Text Ads are the most unused resource out there and I’m here to tell you Text Ads Work.

First of all what is a text ad – it is a form of online paid advertising that is typically just text with a link to your site and copy with a description of the promotion one is offering.
Examples at the bottom that have worked for me.

While owning a variety of sites such at traffic exchanges, mailers, paid to click and yes even text ad exchanges – I watch as members complain that this site don’t work or that site don’t work and me being the person that I am – go look in their account to see what they are doing and do you know most of the time here is what I see.  The ones that I don’t hear from are the ones that are taking advantage of all their resources.

In the TE’s most have only added one site because they were required to add a site to be able to surf – they have not added any banners, text ads, square banners – all those advertising resources just sitting there. In the mailers, PTC, and yes even the text ad exchanges I see the same thing.

Well for you that are members of Zaney Clicks know that I teach members about text ads – they are taught to watch them by a game that is played each week at Zaney.   Also, at Zaney we even have a promo each Sunday where I feature a site and the members have to go to that site and find a code in that site’s text ad to also teach them how to pay attention to text ads.

Watching the stats from the sites, I know text ads work and here is another example.  One of my active upline sent me a link saying that I know you like text ads – check this site out and let me know what you think.

Trusting my upline, I joined and I will let this banner show my results so far


They say that a picture speaks louder than words – well I guess this will tell you how much that I like the site.  AND I know the next question – yes I have been paid already and working toward the next payout as I will tell you a little secret about this site.

Everyone that loves paid to clicks – well this is extra bonus with this site – you get paid for clicking other members  ADS and get this you even get paid each time your referral logins.

Now for all of you that are trying to learn to mend the gap between you and your upline this would be a great place to start – this site makes it easy to contact your downline (referrals)  – as an upgraded member I can contact them 3 times a week – free members can once a week.  You can also tell if they are active from your commission page  – this is an awesome site for earning, promoting and great teaching tool.

What are you waiting for – here is YOUR opportunity for me to show you Text Ads work

Always be thankful – lesson to learn

Well as I was doing the email tonight for Zaney Clicks I went searching for some Thanksgiving quotes and it’s amazing how things work out and you find things that YOU need – another one of those miracles that most don’t talk about.

As most of you know and have been putting up with my pile of screw ups on the sites lately and yes there is a reason – you see I lost focus on what I should be thankful for and got wrapped up in what life was dishing out for me instead of trusting God.

Running across this poem sure put things in perspective for me and thought I would share with all of you…

thankful3Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

So everyone no matter what life dishes out to you if you look hard enough you will find those things to be thankful for and I’m one of the lucky ones as I have many of them and they are YOU all the wonderful people that I have met since my journey online and you all don’t even realize how much you have helped me – so just wanted to write this and say THANK YOU

Bribe and Gifting

In the Affiliate Funnel webinar a couple weeks ago, Marci Jones talked about how people love bribes and well got me thinking and thought I’d write a post about what is running thru my mind.

offers2Remember when you first started and how you didn’t know where to start, how to start – well wouldn’t it have been nice if your upline had helped you out by gifting you some credits to get started.

Think about it if you have a site that is your favorite, you are getting results, you are earning mooooolah – wouldn’t it be in your interest to get your referrals doing the same thing.

Most of you that have your favorite sites have sooooooo many credits and they are just sitting there and you just keep surfing the site – why not use those credits and bribe more people to join under you – then reward them even more by gifting the more credits when they upgrade.

helping you learn and earnIsn’t that a win-win for YOU and your referral.  Most of the time you are already an upgraded member and some of you are lifetimers at some of your favorites sites.  This is great for YOU as you will earn commissions and you will more than likely get a referral that will join under you at another site also.

Oh I see those wheels spinning – do you know how happy your new referral would be if because of YOU gifting them credits got them their first referral or earned them their first money online.  I know you remember how exciting it was for you when that happened to you – come on and help make that happen for someone else.

If you don’t see that offered at your favorite site, then contact the owner as I’m sure they will help you make this happen.  Now go and make someones day.

There are sooooooooo many benefits at Cooperative Marketing Group to list here but I do have one more to mention as I get asked where can I make my own splash pages and do I have a program that I recommend – well now I do – Cooperative Marketing Group.
