Gary Vaynerchuk Shares Social Media Principles on CNN

Gary Vaynerchuk is a true for in marketing and the power of social media. I have previously posted videos of Gary on my blog and I have personally interviewed him for my Internet Business Blueprint podcast and closely follow his business model and marketing principles. I came across this video today and wanted to share it with you.

Here are a few basic principles on how to use social media effectively:

WowWe Free Video Email and Unique Income Opportunity

If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that I am very careful about recommending income programs, I rarely make new recommendations and when I do you know they are “the real deal,” capable of generating real income. One policy I never stray from is only recommending a program after I have personally made money with the program. The reason I do this is pretty simple, if I have used my leveraged system to make money with a program, I know I can also teach you how to do the same thing.

WowWe is a leading web-conferencing platform that provides a quality video conferencing and video email products for traditional offline businesses and online business around the world. I love viral business tools as a consistent income stream because those who buy the services integrate them into their business and as long as the products and services deliver value, they will continue to pay the monthly fees and you will continue to earn commissions.

Here is a fun little video that will provide you with the basic s concerning the WowWe products and gain an understanding about what is offered.

I Love Joint Ventures and So Should You. Are You Ready To Be Loved Back?

Internet marketing is an easy business to get into but creating a consistent income and sustainable business requires planning, patience and a long-term point of view. One of the key ingredients is identifying like-minded people who share your values and are committed to helping you grow your business as you help them grow theirs. When people come together to co-develop a product, enter into a marketing agreement or co-op advertise, tremendous leverage takes place and everyone especially your customers benefit in the long-term.

These types of relationships are often identified as “Joint Ventures” or JVs and I love them having utilized them to make quantum leaps in my business over the years. Effective joint venture partnerships when done properly can be more powerful than list building, paid advertising, social media and many other non-personal types of marketing.

I want to give you a few key points to consider when creating joint ventures in addition to a few mistakes you should avoid to ensure your joint ventures produce the results you are seeking. Follow these guidelines and you too will be empowered to develop lifelong friendships, high trust partnerships, deliver tremendous value to your customers, and advance your business to the next level.

Measuring Social Media Return on Investment Your ROI

What is the return on investment from Social Media? This is a question that has been debated consistently over the past few months by a variety of thought leaders across the web. Erik Qualman, Gary Vaynerchuk , Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin have written books that address the topic of Social Media ROI

The value of social media for business has been debated by early adopters and those slow to commitment to Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Stumble Upon and other social platforms as an import part of their overall marketing and client relations strategy. The debate rages on, but what is undeniable is the impact that social media has had on small businesses and multi-national corporations alike.

I want to share a short video today that makes a powerful statement. The ROI on social media has been huge for many companies and transformational for others. New industries have emerged and old business models have been given new life as the world has become a much smaller place. I encourage you to invest a few minutes watching this powerful video and reading the associated blog post from across the social web.

Regardless if you chose to engage with your market with social media or chose to ignore it, I would encourage you to actually decide, make a conscious decision either way. Social media is not a fad, it is not trivial, and it is not going away – it is actually just in its infancy. If you invest the time required to craft a thoughtful social media strategy your results will be transformational for you and your brand.

Mega Money EMails System Review

I am really excited about Mega Money Mails E-Course a complete list-building system including auto-responder campaigns resulting in a turnkey system that anyone can use to build a gorilla sized list. Regardless of how long you have been online you continue to hear people say “the money is in the list,” this is a catchy phrase and it also happens to be true.

It really doesn’t matter what you are doing right now to make money online, if you do not have prospects for your business it will be impossible for you to make sales or enroll members in your programs, it really is that simple. Will having a list a guarantee that you will make a consistent living online, not necessarily, but without a list you will find it virtually impossible to earn a sustainable full-time income online.

At first list-building may seem like an overwhelming task to get started, but in reality you can begin today by completing the Mega Money Emails course and then putting the system into place. I fully endorse the “Mega Money Emails” program because it allows both the newbie marketer and more experienced marketers to seamlessly build multiple sales funnels and convert sales consistently and systematically.

Internet Marketers: Do Your Motives and Actions Pass This Test?

It really isn’t that difficult to do the right thing – agreed? I was reading a blog post by my friend Jon Olson on ‘Hit Exchange News’ titled “The Biggest Joke In Internet Marketing” and the topic is on product launches in the Internet Marketing industry. It is a very interesting topic and there certainly remains plenty of room for improvement among both large and small marketers in our niche. For all of the finger pointing and thoughts about Internet marketing tactics, I would like to propose a simple little test to guide all marketers on how to serve their customers and a basis for their customers to evaluate marketers and launches.

Marketers: First Examine Your Motives

1. Do your motives originate from truth?

2. Do your motives foster fairness for everyone concerned?

3. Do your motives build value for your customers and associates?

Marketers: Second Examine Your Actions

1. Will your actions support a worthy long-term objectives?

2. Will your actions be responsible for harming another person?

3. Will your actions deliver value for your marketplace?

Major Design Upgrade for My Blog … Pardon Our Dust!

Welcome to AskJamesHolmes.com the “Internet Business Blueprint” blog. My Site IS STILL LIVE and all of my CONTENT IS Available, but I am making some major design and navigation changes to the site and while I am working on the site in real time, you will be seeing a very scattered representation of my theme and navigation buttons, etc.

My blog has developed a loyal readership and has an Worldwide Alexa Ranking of 374,384 and US Ranking of 96,898 – our traffic is up 30% in the last 3 months. This is just one measure of audience reach, but it does indicate how the site has grown over the past couple of years. In 2010 I made a few changes to improve the user experience of the site and the feedback and growth suggest that the changes were well received.

For 2011 I am making more significant changes with the intention of enriching the user experience and ease of navigation. In addition to the graphic changes and completely revised navigation, you will discover several valuable resources and links to other sites that will provide you with all of the resources and tools you need to elevate your business to another level.

This process will take a week or so to complete and there will be several small tweaks after the design is fully launched. I am going to complete most of the changes during low traffic periods in order to impact the fewest number of visitors. If you stop by and find that things look a little crazy, you will know what is underway. Please keep in mind that you will still have access to all of the content on the site!

Free Live Weekly Training on How to Use Ad Exchanges

Website Magazine was partially responsible for inspiring a new movement in the traffic exchange industry after their publication on the topic of “Online Advertising Exchanges” in their February 2011 issue of the magazine. In a story written by Peter Prestipino titled “Advertsing Exchanges – The New Digital Ad Marketplace,” Mr. Prestipino explores the upper end advertising exchange model and you do not have to streach too far to see the connection between these platforms and traffic exchanges.

The fact that the premiere US website developers publication could dedicate an entire issue to ad exchanges without mention of traffic exchanges was troubling to more than one exchange owner and this in part inspired the formation of the Traffic Exchange Summit. To read more about the summit please refer to my recent blog post on this topic.

Blog and Audio Interview: What is the Traffic Exchange Summit?

The Traffic Exchange Summit has adopted a mission to educate the broader online advertising and Internet Marketing community about exchanges and the role they play in delivering targeted traffic and measurable conversions for advertisers. The benefits for the marketers who use exchanges to promote their websites and business opportunities also have found them to be extremely cost effective.

It is time to evolve the mission to the next level in terms of outreach and education. I will host the first in a weekly series of live web-conferences deigned to provide instruction on utilizing ad exchanges to build your brand, grow your subscriber list, track and measure your campaigns, and convert impressions into sales.

Viral Bonuses is a Free Membership Site with Zero Strings Attached!

My friends Darren Olander and Jared Silver have come together to create a really cool new “Free Give Away” site called Viral Bonuses with zero strings attached. No one-time offers, no upsells, no down sales, nothing to buy. The site was designed to provide gifts from many of the leading Internet marketing and online advertising sites with as a free gift to site members.

So, what’s in it for the contributors?

The logical presentation made to the gift contributors was basically this; let us give a gift away featuring your products, services, memberships, etc. If you deliver enough value, a percentage of the people that received your free gift will make future purchases and this will also build your brand. I was convinced personally and I have added bonuses from some of my top programs as well.

What do you get?

All of this gifts have been added to Viral Bonuses and all you have to do is sign up and you have access to the 10 initial bonuses and additional bonuses that will be released on an ongoing basis. The beauty of this is that the gift bag will continue to grow and as new gifts are added, you simply log into your account and access the gift that will benefit you.

The bonuses include memberships, Internet Marketing product downloads, advertising credits to popular sites and more. After you have joined be sure to share your referral link with your friends so that they can also take advantage of this site. Pay it forward!
