NetMeeting on Crack?

“Why not just use NetMeeting for all your online meetings and webinars? After all, it’s free, right?”

Consider these reasons why you should consider using a better web conferencing solution:

• NetMeeting is not “firewall friendly.” So if some people are inside your network and some outside, you’ll have to reconfigure your corporate firewall to hold a meeting with everyone. Some may even be behind another corporate firewall. Most companies won’t accept the added security risk that comes with opening additional ports in their firewall.

• With NetMeeting, the number of connections is limited to 8-16 people per host. As a workaround people have to connect to others who are connected. This daisy chaining brings two problems: 1) You have to communicate with another of the attendees of a NetMeeting conference to get his or her IP so you can connect, 2) If there are any disconnections, you may need to “phone a friend” to get reconnected.

• NetMeeting is only available for Windows systems. Mac and Linux users are excluded from the party.

• Scheduling has to be done separately through e-mail or via a separate calendaring system.

• People who share their larger screens (e.g., 1400×1200) force people with lesser resolution to have to scroll around to follow the presentation, since the participant can only see a part of the presenter’s screen at any given time.

NetMeeting still does the basics well if you’re in the same network in a small group.

But if you are serious about making more money with less effort,  you want something that works regardless of where your prospects are or what kind of a computer system they are using.

GoToMeeting is NetMeeting on crack. If you need a solution for larger groups you’ll want GoToWebinar which includes GoToMeeting. They get the job done. Let’s look at what GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar can do for you:

• GotoMeeting/GoToWebinar pass in and out of corporate firewalls with ease. Even in the case where you’re behind one corporate firewall and one of your participants is behind another, you’ll connect without issue.

• GoToMeeting does have a limit of 15 people in a meeting. But GoToWebinar allows you to present to up to 1000 participants.

• The participants of a GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar presentation can use Windows or a Mac to connect to the meeting. Only the presentation has to be done from a Windows system.

• Scheduling integrates itself seamlessly with Outlook, so everyone can easily import the meeting with all the connection information right into their calendar.

• GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar uses industry strength (128-bit) encryption, so your communications are secure.

• You can easily record your presentation and package them for sale. Webinars are a great way to add value to your existing products.

• GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar scales the presenter’s screen for the participants such that you don’t need to scroll around to see the entire screen.

Each participant can decide whether he/she wants to see that screen at full scale or reduced size.

It’s true that there is a price associated with GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar, but if you are serious about your presentations – and you should be, the price is small compared to the returns in sales and leads.

Even if you think you will never get your $49/month out of GoToMeeting or $99 out of GoToWebinar, you owe it to yourself to signup for a 30 day free trial. Give a Webinar and hold a meeting. Often people think they won’t like giving Webinars, and find out after they have done one, that it grows on you. And if you do it right, you can earn money off of your webinars while using your free trial!

And it is the fastest way to create a high ticket product, bar none.

If you want to become a major player and earn a decent income with Internet Marketing like Marlon Sanders, Frank Kern, Brian Clark, Mike Filsaime, Shoemoney or John Chow – ok, these guys earn more than “decent,” I admit – then you will want to give Webinars.

NetMeeting was great in its day, but I feel that its day has passed. Check out the free trial of GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar today, and take your business to the next level.

How to Quadruple Your Signups with Action Popup

Would you like to quadruple your signups for your website, blog or sales letter by adding a simple plugin to WordPress?

I wasn’t able to consistently build a list until I stumbled upon a little WordPress plugin called Action Popup. Since then my subscriber numbers have been growing steadily and effortlessly.

Action Popup solves the biggest problems of the busy marketer: It’s easy to install and setup, it’s unblockable, and it’s effective.

Michel Fortin, the well-known copywriter and blogger, claims that Action PopUp “more than quadrupled” his signups!

Installation in a WordPress blog is as easy as copying the plugin to the plugin folder on your server and activating it. The creator of Action PopUp, Robert Plank, includes a 30 second installation video to make installation and setup even easier.

Integration with popular auto-responders, like AWeber, is a snap. Just design your option form as you normally would and paste the raw HTML code into the Action PopUp configuration box.

Normally you wouldn’t want to put an optin form on a sales page, since you want the visitor to focus and follow through with the purchase and not have the option to leave the page for any other reason. Sales letter etiquette 101, right?

With Action Optin, included as a bonus, the signup process is automatically handled by a php script in the background, so your visitor never leaves the page. That means that you have the signup and the sale, too!

Action Optin actually gives you back screen space after the visitor opts in, replacing the optin form with a thank you message of your choosing or creation.

Do you want to get more visitors who leave comments on your list? The second bonus included, Action Comments does just that. It puts a little checkbox under the comment box that makes it effortless for visitors who leave a comment to opt in and join your list. A recent update even enables you to allow your visitors to register for your webinars via GoToWebinar.com

Whether you believe that the money is in the list or in someone else’s list, you owe it to yourself to start building yours today. One of the biggest mistakes that Internet marketers make is not to have a list and to mail to that list regularly. Direct response marketing is the best way to build a long term relationshp with your visitors.

You can get a kick start your list and get Action Popup today.

Is Fast Food Copywriting Web Copy That Sells?

If you thought the idea of fast food copywriting was a bit cheesy, you could be right, but the system in Robert Plank’s copywriting manual is full of gold.

If your goal is to write web copy that sells, quickly, easily and to get the maximum results from what you write, you should take a close look at Fast Food Copywriting. If you want all the theory and the studies, then Maria Velosos’ Web Copy That Sells is a great read, but Robert Plank makes writing compelling sales copy as easy as how to write a letter to an old friend.

Plank won’t tell you much theory. He gets right down to the nitty gritty of outlining a foolproof system of creating high converting sales letters which you can use to churn out money making e-mails, sales letters or e-zine articles in a matter of minutes.

After I grabbed my copy of Fast Food Copywriting and put the system to the test, I was amazed how much faster I could write simple articles that convert well. When you download your copy, I’d like to hear your reaction as well. It’s probably the best copywriting book that you’ll never find on rapidshare.com.

The idea behind Fast Food Copywriting is that the most important thing in copywriting for the Internet is to create articles that are good enough in the minimum amount of time so you can keep the flow going. Many people quit writing because they burn out spending too much time on one niche which doesn’t bring them any returns.

Maybe the coolest thing about Fast Food Copywriting is that Plank teaches you not only how to write sales letters fast, but also gets you to change your approach to Internet marketing. His concept is not quantity over quality, but rather maximum quality in the minimum amount of time so that you can try lots of niches.

If you stay in the Internet marketing game long enough you’ll discover that some niches are highly profitable for you in your style and some are duds. What the gurus won’t tell you is that you need to try a number of niches and develop your own style.

With Fast Food Copywriting you’ll discover a system that will put you in the proper mindset to focus on finding success while producing web copy that is good enough to sell.

Let’s face it, McDonalds doesn’t do gourmet, but they do make some good money. And they do it not by trying to fake gourmet food, but by giving you food you know is good enough. Billions sold, right?

Download your copy of Fast Food Copywriting today, so you can begin writing web copy that is good enough to sell and have the time and money to eat gourmet.
