How To Optimize Your Computer Time

I just found this article by Jim Edwards entitled, Discover Hidden Profits in "Spare Change" Time that can help you better use time spent working at your computer. I took the One Day Challenge Jim writes about and accomplished some things I've been putting off for awhile.

Discover Hidden Profits in "Spare Change" Time

- by Jim Edwards

Fact: Take the spare change out of your pocket every night
and put it in a child's piggy bank. At the end of a year you
will have at least a hundred dollars to spend as you wish.

Now take this same principle and discover the huge payoff in
the "spare change" time you've been wasting all these years.

How often do you sit in front of your computer and wait?

Everyone waits for the computer to reboot, restart, unlock,
"scandisk", "defrag", finish printing, download a file from
the Internet or generally accomplish tasks that have you
sitting twiddling your thumbs for at least 60 to 90 seconds
or more.

The shocking truth is that those one, two and three minute
nuggets of time contain the seeds for accomplishing all the
tasks you never seem to have enough minutes in the day to

Computers represent a double-edged sword. On the one hand,
they are supposed to save us time by efficiently helping us
with big tasks such as balancing our checkbooks, running our
businesses, and doing our taxes.

In reality, it seems the time computers save you gets sucked
right back up in time-consuming tasks such as installing
software, scanning for viruses and waiting for the computer
to restart!

Think about the spare change in the piggy bank example. Now
use that same principle to your advantage by developing an
awareness of how you spend your "pocket change" time in
front of the computer every day.

Small bits of wasted time add up quickly over the course of
a day, week, year - all of it in 2 to 3 minute increments.
Fifteen wasted minutes a day equals well over 1 ½ productive
weeks wasted per year!

Take this "one-day challenge".

Today, try these alternatives to sitting and watching the
"hourglass" on your monitor while waiting for your computer
to finish a task!

~ Organize your desk
~ Sharpen your pencils
~ Make a quick phone call
~ Check your "to-do" list; if you don't have a "to-do" list
make one
~ Write a fast note to a friend
~ Put in a load of laundry
~ Go to the bathroom
~ Get another cup of coffee
~ Pay a bill
~ Catch up your checkbook entries
~ Pick up your office
~ Brainstorm an idea
~ Stand up and stretch
~ Day-dream for about a happy thought for 90 seconds!

Carefully watch how much time you spend in front of the
computer waiting for it to do something and then see how
many things you can accomplish with that time.

Nothing could reward you more than developing a
consciousness about how you spend those spare moments that
add up to enough time to write a book, take a trip with your
family or take positive actions that will change your life

Use your "spare change" time to accomplish the things you
claim you never find time to finish!

Product Review: List Inferno

Product Review of ListInferno

Concept: Adds Thousands Of 100% Opt-In Leads To Your List
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
Ease of Use: 5 out of 5
Effectiveness: 5 out of 5
Recommendation: Use Immediately - Major List Building Tool
Price: FREE

Anyone successful on the Internet tells you the gold is in
your list. But what if you can't get that list? What if
you're struggling to get just 100 subscribers a week?

Now there's a better solution, that enables anyone to add
thousands of 100% opt-in subscribers to their list, with
very little effort.

Technical eMarketer Steve Shaw, the guy behind this tool,
says that ListInferno has been designed to "give everyone
and anyone the ability to create their own big valuable
opt-in list ... this system has been designed to add
thousands of opt-in leads to your list for the bare minimum
of effort - and it's all 100% free".

So, does it live up to the hype?

When I first took a look at this tool, I thought, "Well,
there are some systems similar to this one on the net...
What makes this one so special?"

Then, when I signed up and followed the process in the
Setup Wizard, the answer was easy to see. There are some
subtle differences in this tool that make it really stand
out. And I'd be willing to bet that these differences may
well make this the most viral list building tool yet seen

It's important to realize, that rather than bringing you
huge amounts of traffic, this tool brings you what anyone
wanting to make money online needs even more - quality
targetted 100% opt-in leads
for your list.

This new free tool could well be the easiest, cheapest and
fastest way to build your list yet developed. In fact, by
jumping on board with this as soon as possible, you could
gain a strong advantage over your competitors.

And if they are already signed up, that's even more reason
not to waste any more time. After all, the one with the
biggest list usually wins, and makes the most money.

Definitely ride the wave on this:

Listen, I've tried this out myself - it's so easy and so
effective, it would be pretty dumb not to use it
immediately. Anything that can give you free subscribers
for virtually zero effort is worth a try - and this system
can give you lots of those.

Bottom Line: This is probably the most effective list
building system
we have ever encountered - and quite
possibly there will never be anything like this again. We
mean that. We just hope it stays free... You should get it
now while it still is.

Top 7 Mistakes eBook Authors Make


I have been doing some serious contemplation about my online programs after my last post. Sometimes you are not even sure of the answers you will receive. Or, the source of the answer.

So, I went into a little prayer session about Vortex Marketing Group and 4-Ecorp Fuel Managment Group. I do know during my time with Vortex Marketing Group, I was in close touch with CEO staff and found them to be genuine people who really wanted to help others succeed online. What all this "he say - she say" that appears to be circulating around 4-Ecorp, I don't know the truths or untruths of any of it.

Yesterday (Sunday) evening, I was listening to Joel Osteen's message that put me at peace in providing an answer about 4-Ecorp. If I didn't know better, I'd think he knew about the situation personally. The gist of the message was about being loyal to business partners, friends and family; even when they make a mistake. Joel urged not to become a part of passing along a bunch negative information, gossip and bickerings. There was my answer, I have no desire to pass along the contents of that email, so I have removed it from my blog today.

If you have concerns about these programs, contact your immediate sponsor for details and then come to your own conclusion.

With all that out the way, I wanted to bring you a article by Jim Edwards and David Garfinfel. I hope you find it useful.

The Top Seven Mistakes eBook Authors Make

-By Jim Edwards and David Garfinkel

© Jim Edwards and David Garfinkel

eBooks are the hottest thing going on the Web right now!

Authors with the entrepreneurial instinct are making
anywhere from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars
per month - that's right, per month - by selling ebooks

Why are some authors doing so much better than others?
We've discovered seven key mistakes that most ebook authors
make (and in doing so, hold themselves back from major

1. They don't write to a specific, target audience.

The biggest mistake most ebook authors make is they don't
clearly define, identify and visualize who they are selling
their ebook to. On the Web, to be successful, you must
write to a specific group of people who have specific

Make sure that you know exactly who is going to buy your
ebook, and where you can find them online.

2. They don't automate as many of their business activities
as possible.

Selling ebooks, though it is highly profitable, is not a
business where you make hundreds of dollars per sale.

Automate everything you can - credit card processing, ebook
delivery, as much technical support as possible. If you
can't automate a function, delegate it to someone else.

3. They don't have a compelling title for their ebook.

Use words that convey the benefit of what's in the ebook, as
well as words your audience is familiar with.

A bad title for an ebook: "Online Marketing for Newbies."
A good title for the same ebook: "97 Ways to Promote Your
Website - No Experience Required."

4. They try to cover too much ground.

Many ebook authors convey a lot of information but don't
cover anything in-depth. As a result, they never fully
explain anything in enough detail to provide any useful
value to their readers.

This is a very bad mistake to make, especially when it
comes to how-to ebooks, which happen to be the best type to

5. They are not proactive in their marketing.

It would be nice if marketing for your ebook simply happened
on its own - but it doesn't. You have to do it yourself.

After you've promoted your ebook to the people on your own
mailing list (if you have one), then you have to contact
other Website owners and persuade them to be your
affiliates. You should do this continually.

6. They don't differentiate their ebook from its

When you choose your topic, even if there are a hundred
other ebooks out there on same general subject, choose an
angle for yours that will make it easy for yours to be
distinguished from the others.

For example, right now job-hunting ebooks are very popular.
There are dozens that are big sellers. "Secrets of Breaking
Into Pharmaceutical Sales" has a very specific title that
sets it apart from the competition, and is aimed at a
clearly identified target audience. Incidentally, it's
selling very well itself.

7. They write ebooks that nobody will pay for.

Many ebook authors write about information that either
people can get for free, or that people are not actually
interested in enough to pay for the information.

Before you invest weeks or months into the writing of your
ebook, invest a little time investigating whether other
ebooks in the same subject area are selling on the Web.

So, there you have it - the seven big mistakes to avoid.
Remember, the opportunities are plentiful - and huge - right
now for anyone who wants to become a best-selling ebook
author. Simply use common sense, follow our advice, and let
your literary career flourish!

Secrets Exposed: How to Make Massive Amounts of Money in
Record Time With Your Own eBook (whether you wrote it or
not!)," the authoritative guide to publishing and marketing

IMNewswatch AdSense Lesson

IMNewswatch Mike Mograbi weighs in with an interesting AdSense article - quantity versus quality. So before you run out and sign up for those 100 adsense-ready websites, you might want to read what he has to say first. Here it is...

I wanted to share with you a quick and valuable lesson that I and many others have learned from Internet Marketing Newswatch.

It is related to the right way to play the Google AdSense Game.

The Lesson is:

It is better and more profitable to work hard on creating one high-quality website that offers high-quality, in-demand information to site visitors, than to create hundreds of cheap sites, making a few bucks a day, and getting banned/dropped out of major search engines, like Google and Yahoo, in no time.

Does IMNewswatch offers high quality, in-demand information? Yes.

Will it get banned or dropped out of search engines? No, not likely.

Will it last long? Yes, as long as there is internet marketing news to be covered, which seems to be forever.

IMNewswatch is an online business. It gives people what they want and that's how one succeeds online.

I had an SEO expert tell me that IMNewswatch could be making $1000 a day with AdSense, and that's only the beginning. A few months down the road this figure could easily double as traffic increases.

That's around a solid $730,000 a year. Not bad for one site.

You would need over 600 cheap sites, making $3 a day for a whole year to match this figure. That's IF they last for a few months, let alone a whole year.

IMNewswatch Advice: You can make a lot more with Google AdSense investing time to create quality websites, rather than wasting
money, time and effort creating tons of cheap perishable sites.

If you really do want to create those cheap sites, then it wouldn't be a bad idea to create a few good/high-quality ones anyway.

You know something? Ultimately, it's all about giving people what they really want, and they want hot/quality information. Give it to them. They would be happy, search engines would be happy and ultimately, you would be really happy. win-win-win.

Consider this as the most important lesson.
