How to Closeout 2011 Strong and Launch 2012 with Momentum

You can make your year in December with a plan and massive action… ready to go?

Historically December has been a great month for me in business both online and throughout a real estate /mortgage banking career that spanned more than 20 years. There are two primary reasons for this; first, I have always used the month of December to access my year and make plans to shore up any shortcomings and secondly, I take massive action because so many people coast through the holidays… so competition is low.

Last week I discussed this in great detail during my ‘Worldprofit Mentor Podcast’ and provided several tips that will help you closeout 2011 successfully and create momentum in your business allowing you to begin 2012 in a powerful way. I encourage you to invest the next twenty-five minutes listening to the recording and be sure to take notes and create your plan right away.

Internet Marketing Professional Blog BHAG Site #1

This is the first in a series of blog post… 30 in total which will detail my progress completing a Big Harry Audacious Goal (BHAG), which I detailed in a previous blog post. In short, I am creating one new website a day for thirty days and using this process as a teaching opportunity for you and a long-term value adding process for my customers, subscribers, and followers.

Site #1 is Internet Marketing Professional which is a Wordpress blog centered on teaching others how to become a successful Internet marketer in the niche of affiliate marketing. This is a site that I acquired as a new project through Flippa from a very solid site designer. The teaching around this first project is how you can acquire and customize quality niche sites on Flippa and other auction websites.

I acquired this site fully functional but all of the pages and post where generic so it was a blank canvas from a content and branding perspective. I was attracted to the graphics and a very high converting Facebook Fan Page that provides a free video course on video marketing in exchange for a “Like”… I highly recommend this list building method.

Here are 7 tips to gain superior results buying sites on Flippa: (Please click on the title link to read the full article)

James Holmes Newest Talk Marketing Now Host Teaches List-Building

I love teaching and sharing what I have learned with others in order to fulfill my purpose as defined by my personal mission statement which is: “To sow increase into the lives of others by co-creating wealth and abundance.” Helping others create success online is a great way for me to make this ideal a reality.

Last week Brian Schilling, co-founder of Family Networker and a new friend invited me to guest host his weekly show on Talk Marketing Now Network (TMN). I really enjoyed hosting the show and I found the audience to very engaged. A quick survey revealed that most in attendees where intermediate to advanced marketers along with several newer marketers. At the end of the night it was clear to me that this was a group that I would love to get to know better.

What I liked about the group was the fact that everyone in the room was open minded and more interested in learning by sharing their “actual” experiences rather than trying to impress the other members in the room. This creates a fertile environment for growth and people walk away with actionable information that truly helps them inch closer to success. It is fun to share and teach a room of open minded marketers.

The following day I spoke with George Sepich the founder of Talk Marketing Now Network and is a respected marketer. Again, I was impressed and had a great conversation with George which concluded with an agreement that I would become the newest host on TMN. I see this as a huge opportunity to add value to the academy and gain value from the community… an opportunity for expansion.

Beginning on Wednesday November 2nd and into the foreseeable future, I will host a new training show at Talk Marketing Now called “Mega Money List-building and my focus will be the broad subject of list-building. During every session I will cover a full range of subjects to help you build a mega list including mindset, business funnels, sales funnels, tactics, monetization, resources, tools and much more.

The training sessions at the Talk Marketing Now Network are free to attend and the classroom can be accessed by visiting:

I am inviting you to join me every Monday at 7:00 PM EST to learn how to build a mega list and discover how to create automated income streams as a natural outgrowth from your responsive list. The sessions will include both formal instruction as well as casual conversation among the attendees with lively Q&A sessions. My objective is to help you walk away with actionable knowledge that you can apply to your business immediately.

Get a Free Worldpress Blog Make Money Referring Others

I love Wordpress blogs, which probably explains why I have a network of nearly 20 site across a variety of carefully selected niches. I often speak with newer marketers that are confused about how to get started with a self hosted blog and resort to free blogs on Blogger or other blog platforms. I have several blogs on Blogger also but the bottom-line is that if Google (the owner of Blogger) feels that your content violates their evolving terms of service, your content and all of your hard work can disappear overnight. No warning just removed… it has happened to a few people I know.

If you are an internet marketer or home-based business professional a self-hosted Wordpress blog should be the hub of all of your online activities. Considering the importance of your blog you must take due care when selecting a blog platform and setting up your site. Keep in mind that your prospect will complete a websearch on your name while completing their due dilegence on you prior to joining your business or buying a product from you… what wil they find?
