Call To Action – Blog Beast Coming, Break Out and Break Free – Oct 10 2013

Call To Action – Blog Beast Coming, Break Out and Break Free – Oct 10 2013



I couldn’t have said it better!!! Thanks Joel!

I get excited when I see leads coming in
every day now! I can feel that I’m going to 
Break Out and Break Free!
Lots of the new leads  have  
BlogBeast as the lead source… so ….

It proves the system works.

I love Aweber too…it makes capturing
leads and sending emails and broadcasts
so easy. 

Gosh, I think back on where I was just two
weeks ago and I’ve come a long way.

I didn’t even know what Aweber was and
therefore lost lots of leads because I wasn’t
capturing them in a tool that I could also
email them.

Since I’ve started following my mentor’s
lead…i.e. doing what he says…. I see the
system performing as it should and I can
see a great income in the near future…

I’m also excited about tomorrow….

At 3pm Eastern time we get our first
video telling us the details of what’s
coming on the 18th… the full blown
BlogBeast…… Mobile…

That means we can blog and post and
do what we need to do using our smart

I just got my Samsung Note II and
I heard today that the Samsung
Note III is now available…..so I can
upgrade since I’ve only had the phone
for a couple of days… BUT I LOVE what
I’ve seen so far…and I can write it off
as a business expense with Blog Beast..

I also registered another domain today
called www.NJoyBlogBeast.com

Check it out…

Also, it’s time to get signed in to
get all the updates starting tomorrow.

Call To Action – Empathy – Sept 18 2013

Call To Action – Empathy – Sept 18 2013

Why talk about EMPATHY in an Internet
Marketing Blog?

To give a little background on our WHY.
I’ll have to tell you a little story.

Diane and I started teaching a small
group at our church the first of Sept.

We’re teaching with another couple
from our church, and we’re teaching
a group of 8 young couples, some
married and some ready to get

Tonight we had everyone over to
our Home.  The class is called, “The

We actually had to turn people away
from the training….so many people want
the secret.

So, what specifically are we studying?

EMPATHY!!!!!   What is Empathy?

EMPATHY is the CAPACITY to see the world
accurately from your spouse’s perspective!

Well, we say SPOUSE, since we’re in a
Marriage seminar, but the definition is
actually, “the capacity to see the world
accurately from another’s perspective”.

How does this apply to Internet Marketing?

Well let me tell you… I got an email from
a friend last week…it was his birthday!  He said
he was really feeling empathic today and
wanted to help everyone become successful
in their Internet Marketing Business.  I thought
that was an awesome move… SOOOO,

Now I want to do the same thing… I’ve been
working hard to get everything set up and running.

Now I’m ready to share what I’ve learned.  It’s NOT
a SECRET.  It’s a simple step-by-step process that
works EVERY TIME is applied.  Not only can I share
this with you, I am actually going to GIVE you
my auto responder messages, help you get started
with your Aweber system, give you contacts for Solo Ads,
Hook you up with GoDaddy to get your private Domain
Name, Help you set up your Campaign names in
Aweber, Link your Empower Network to Aweber and
start you on the road to making money.

SO…. Let’s do it!!!


Good night for now.

Call To Action – Ad Tracking – Sept 11, 2013

Call To Action – Ad Tracking –  Sept 11, 2013

Yesterday I talked about doing “first things first” and also talked
about “efficiency vs effectiveness”.  One thing I heard recently
was that “efficiency means doing THINGS RIGHT” and “effectiveness
means doing the RIGHT THINGS RIGHT”! 
I love that!!

I’m trying to keep that in mind as I build my Internet Marketing
business.  Lots of leads coming in by I’m not capturing where
they’re coming from and I didn’t have my auto responders
set up properly to get the follow-up messages flowing back
to the email leads I had captured..

I do still have all the email address’, I just can’t access them
with my follow-up system in Aweber.  I’m learning how to use
Outlook for reaching THOSE leads, but I DO NOW have everything
set up to catch and respond… so I’m moving in the right direction.

I’ve also purchased more Solo Ad to start this week so I’m
EXPECTING good results.

So what am I talking about tonight…. Ad Tracking!  Well…. What
is that?   Ad Tracking is the concept of KNOWING how effective
my ads are.  This means I submit and ad, whether it’s a Solo AD,
a Facebook ad, a YouTube Ad or any other ad and KNOWING
which leads come from which ads.  I haven’t totally grasps the
actual way to do this yet, but I didn’t have lots of time today to
work on it.  Maybe tomorrow.

I have run a couple of tests today and am waiting for the
results to let me know what’s working and what’s not working.

I’ve been using my domain name URL in all my ads and I’m
thinking now that domain names will not give me what I want.
I must use the original URL and tack on the necessary campaign
names to actually capture where the leads are coming from.

I will certainly know more about that tomorrow.  There are lots
of good YouTube training that can teach me how to do it

I’ll be sure to get a good Blog out tomorrow so I can determine
for myself and also let you know how to do it RIGHT…




  It’s coded tonight to capture
that you clicked from my blog… so we’ll see……



Call To Action – Learn About Your System – Sept 9, 2013

Call To Action – Learn About Your System –  Sept 9, 2013

My point yesterday was to learn about the new system first:

  1. Learn about the system first:  What’s needed to make
    it work for you.   I mean EVERYTHING!  Don’t be
    surprised at the products you need and don’t be
    surprised at how much you might spend on YOUR
    new business, from tools to marketing.

Empower Network; specifically Dave Wood and Dave Sharpe have
some of the best capture pages on the market.  What makes them
so prolific??? Well, it’s got to be the content of the pages.  Dave
and Dave have captured “what it takes” to grab the interest of
the readers.  It certainly did grab my attention… I’m ALL IN!!!

So, now that we have the system, EMPOWER NETWORK, what
do we do?  I’m sure as you went through the entire presentation
of Empower Network, you were saying, “This is crazy!” All they
want is my money.  They keep “UP-SELLING” me on every Page.

I agree… I said that too.. but when I kept going, it only makes
sense.  Each “UP-SELL” is another product I have in my “product
list” to sell.  Each product brings in more of those 100%
commissions!…. 100% COMMISSIONS???? How can they
do that??

Well Dave and Dave are not dummies…. Their idea is to have a
system that pays affiliates enough to keep them active in the
system.  100% COMMISSIONS will do that.  Plus it allows the
affiliates to make lots of money, quickly!  That’s one reason I
like Empower Network.

The first product to purchase is the BLOGGING SYSTEM for $25/month!
$25/month???? Yes,,, that’s little to pay for one of the premier
blogging systems on the market.  The second expense you need to
have (MUST HAVE) is to join Empower Network as an affiliate.
The fee for this is $19.95/month.  So together, you’ll pay almost
$45/month for the system and the first product.  THAT WILL START YOU

Oh… did I say you need to learn everything you need to have in place???

YES I DID!!…. So next, before you do anything else, you need to have
your lead capture and auto response system in place.  That’s another
$19.95 monthly from Aweber.  This and your Empower Network
product and affiliate membership cost less than $65/month.  I’ve
been in some vitamin business’s that require you to have at least
a $100/month autoship… so this is great.

Yes… we also have other products in Empower Network that you will
LOVE and will make you lots of money too, but we’ll talk about them

Now that you have your Lead Capture system, Your Blogging system,
and your affiliate membership, you are ready.

Next, before placing any ads (and we’ll talk about that later too),
we need to make sure you have a few autoresponse emails set up in
Aweber and MAKE SURE you have your Empower Network lead
capture tied into the Aweber system so all your leads will be available
for autoresponse broadcasts.

While creating the emails, you’ll also need at least one email set
up for the first person to purchase your product.  This is so you
can welcome him into the business (YOUR TEAM)… OH, you might
want to consider what your TEAM NAME might be.

The great thing about Aweber is that you can SHARE campaigns.
There is some great training on that, so building an email
follow-up autoresponder is NO PROBLEM!

OK, I’m at almost 600 words now… but this is KEY…. Make sure
you have everything set up to respond to your leads as soon as
they sign up.  I didn’t do that so it’s why I’m putting so much
emphasis on it.  Build that FOUNDATION FIRST!!!




Call To Action – FOCUS – Sept 7, 2013

Call To Action – FOCUS – Sept 7, 2013

Tonight Diane and I began watching a movie called Far
and Away
, starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

The movie, situated in the 1890’s  is about how a poor
Irish farmer (Tom Cruise) and a wealthy rebellious Irish
girl (Nicole Kidman) teamed up (reluctantly) to escape Ireland
at a time when wealthy land owners were overcharging
the poor farmers for their land… so the farmers
began a revolution.  Needless to say, Nicole and Tom were
incompatible and always arguing.

After arriving in America, Nicole’s money was stolen, so that left
the two of them “BROKE”. Their dream was to go to
Oklahoma where 100 acre homesteads were being given
away to those who could “win the race” and get their flags
posted on the available 100 acre land sites.

To get money Tom became a boxer and Nicole worked in
a chicken factory, plucking chicken feathers (tough job for
a spoiled rich girl.  Tom was winning ALL his fights
and making lots of money (for those times).  One
night he came home with $4.00 and Nicole said, “WOW, that’s
more money than I make in a month at the chicken factory.

So, she became an encourager for Tom and slowly they fell in
love (as you would expect).  Then in one of the fights Nicole was
there watching.  There was lots of money on Tom to win and
Tom’s portion of the winning pool would be $50.

While the fight was going on, Nicole was being harassed and
grappled by some of the wealthy betters.  Needless to say
Tom saw this and began watching Nicole and really got
beat up…. At that point Diane said to me, “He lost his FOCUS!”
Yes! He lost his FOCUS and lost the fight and was kicked
out of boxing.  They had to start over from scratch.

Now to get to the point of this blog, Tom lost his FOCUS and
his money.  That LOSS OF FOCUS caused them to lose what
they had and forced them to start over.  Who wants to do that?

Toward the end of the movie Tom got his FOCUS back and
became focused on getting one of those 100 acre land sites.
Needless to say, he succeeded!  YEA!!!

FOCUS was everything!  Without FOCUS he was losing
everything he desired.  With FOCUS, he was succeeding
in everything he did.  Do you get that???

FOCUS produces WINS, lack of FOCUS produces loss!

It’s that simple!   So what are YOU FOCUSING ON?

Tonight I placed more Solo Ads, trying to get those leads
coming in again.  I needed to stop focusing totally on
getting the Aweber system set up and begin FOCUSING
on getting more leads coming in.

Now I have both working so I’m looking forward to the
next couple of weeks.


and sign up for my emails and I’ll keep
you up-to-date on what’s going on.  I’ll even help you
get your dreams.  Work with me and I’ll work with you!

So for tonight… that’s it!



Call To Action – I want to, I will, I did! Sept. 5, 2013

Call To Action –  I want to, I will, I did!       Sept. 5, 2013

391 LIKES on my Empower Network Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/jtudwu) . Check it out!

I love this picture … kinda shows where one is in the decision process.


Where are YOU??? (I WANT TO, but…..; I WILL DO IT, when….; or YES, I DID IT!)…. Let’s do this….

I made the decision about a month ago and I’m excited about our future, especially with the new ENV2 being announced Sept. 30.  ENV2 means, Empower Network Version 2.  I’ll post the video tomorrow when I figure out how to download it.

I got word from Aweber that all my leads are IN THE SYSTEM.  Aweber sends a welcome  email to all the leads that are loaded from a list to verify (again) that they really, really, really want to receive emails.  I suppose that’s a SPAM law now… I notice we must have an address on our emails to indicate who send the email and how to STOP receiving them if you want.

I loaded about two weeks of “follow-up” emails into Aweber today.  The first on has already gone out to those who have responded to the Aweber WELCOME email.  So…. We’re now moving on…

I also noticed a new lead in Empower Network and it was AUTOMATICALLY entered into the Aweber system….. surely wish I had known that before I placed all the ads, I wouldn’t be going through the process of re-verifying the emails….18 have already said they didn’t want any more emails about Empower Network…. We’ll see how many actually do.

I saw a great video from Tony Rush giving the statistics on leads, verses opt-ins, verses sign-ups, verses up-sales….. Great numbers to know and I’ll be following them and reporting as the system starts working.

Just to let you know, here’s how it goes statistically…. For every 100 clicks, 25% (or 25) will enter emails and be added as leads, 10% (or 2.5) will purchase the $25 package and 55% of those will upgrade to the $100 upgrade.  Since the system pays 100% commissions that equates to about $165 for every 100 clicks.  That’s pretty good.  So far I’ve had almost 300 to actually enter their emails, so when I start following up with them with Aweber, I should have about 30 to purchase the $25 package and 16 purchase the $100 upgrade…wow… that should be about $2350 for the Month of August.  Mine may not be that high since I was late getting the leads into Aweber for the follow-ups to start immediately.

Anyway… I’m excited!

That’s it for tonight..




Call To Action – My Move From Outlook to Aweber- Sept 4, 2014

Call To Action –  My Move From Outlook to Aweber- Sept 4, 2014

Click here to watch this video of :  Dave Wood and Dave Sharpe

Today I sat at my computer for what seemed hours trying to confess accomplishments.  But it seemed that LITTLE actually got done.

I had submitted opt in names from Empower Network to AWeber last Friday and when I saw no results today, I finally called them.  They had no record of me submitting them and ask that I go through the process again.  I did resubmit the emails and got a message saying they have been received.  I guess I didn’t see that last week.

I’m still working on the auto responder emails… two separate groups… one for those who have simply clicked, entered their email and watched the video; and one for those that had gone the next step of entering their names wanting to actually sign up but didn’t enter their credit cards.

I’m WAITING (and I hate that)… for me emails to get into Aweber so the auto responder can get started.  I’ve sent all of these folks emails welcoming them to the Empower Network, but am having to manually do that using Outlook and the “mail merge” facility for emails.  That works great… sends an email to several people, puts their names in the header line and the email looks like a personal email. BUT that’s what AWeber is for.

Yesterday I also paid another $5.00 to promote my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/jtudwu) .

I’ve jumped again in LIKED clicks to a total of …….347 as of tonight… wow… it was just less than 300 yesterday.

I did send a couple of broadcast emails yesterday to my list just to let them know they will start getting frequent emails about Empower Network.  Start looking for them… (when AWeber gets them into the system).

That’s it for tonight…





Call To Action – So Much To Learn -Sept 2, 2013

Call To Action – So Much To Learn -Sept 2, 2013

I worked ALL DAY on Labor Day to learn how to do MAIL MERGE using Outlook.  For years I’ve done Mail Merges using WORD, but never Emails.  I’m an avid user of Windows Live Mail, but over the past week have grown to love Outlook

Outlook has a Mail Merge incorporated into it that works with Word to send an email to a group of people with only their names on the email (or whatever else you want to merge into the email).  It works the same way AWeber works when you have leads in AWeber and use the Auto responders and email broadcasts

Since my leads are in the Empower Network capture page I must use Outlook to communicate.  I’ve added all my leads to AWeber but because of the Labor Day weekend, they have not yet been included in AWeber.

SO… I’m also taking leads I have from other sources and sending Outlook emails to them to introduce them to Empower Network’s potential income streams. 

Dave Wood sent a really good message today; one that all Empower Network affiliates can appreciate.  Dave will be taking a break for about a month to get ready for the BIG launch coming September 30.  I can’t wait to see what’s coming.  I know it’s for us to be able to build our businesses even bigger than now possible.

It’s already past midnight, so I’m going to bed.  It’s time for everyone to get signed up and get ready for the BIG announcements September 30thJust click this link to watch the video again and again.  Then click the link to get signed up for just $25.  Then you’ll be ON YOUR WAY.  I can certainly help you be keeping you from making all the mistakes I’ve made along with way.  I think I NOW KNOW exactly what to do.  Join Diane and Me so we can all move along together. 



Call To Action – Found More Leads- Sept. 1, 2013

Call To Action – Found More Leads- Sept. 1, 2013

As strange as it sounds, after a month of “educating myself”, Blogging and Marketing, I found 30 more leads that I didn’t know I had (I mentioned that in last night’s blog).  Of course they have not been getting the “follow-up“ emails, so today, I sent them a personal email just to let them know I hadn’t forgotten them.

All this education was teaching me how to Blog and how to Market… These are two of the main functions to growing my business.  And it’s working!  Obviously since I have over 300 opt-in leads now.

I was too quick to get into the marketing and didn’t watch the video on building my autoresponder!…. duhhhh!

It only makes sense to have a method of capturing and communication with your opt-ins so why not do that first!

I’ve learned my lesson.  Today I’ve created lots of response emails and have been working with Aweber to learn how to use their auto response system. I’m also learning how to enter the emails I have into the Aweber system.  I didn’t know they all had to be approved “again” before they get into the “subscriber” list.  Now I’m waiting for Aweber to approve the list that I have. 

One more thing.. I’ve integrated the lead capture of Empower Network and Aweber so I won’t have this problem in the future.  That’s good and that’s bad… good that it’s now DONE… bad that I didn’t do this FIRST!!!  But I’ve now learned.  I think of Steven Covey author of “FIRST THINGS FIRST”. 

I still have lots to do with Aweber and my auto responders, but I’m getting there. 

Well that’s it for tonight 

Click Here To Learn About The Empower Network >>

… you won’t even have to enter your email to watch it… it’s a “freeby” tonight because of my frustrations… Enjoy it!  In fact, watch it over and over again… I think each time I watch it, I get more excited about what my future is looking like.  You and I, working together, can make this happen.

Call To Action – When In Doubt, Call – Aug 30, 2013

Call To Action – When In Doubt, Call – Aug 30, 2013

Yes, I have to take my own advice here.  I, just like every other man, have often refused to “stop and ask directions”.  Ever heard of that negative trait of men?  For some reason, men refuse to ask directions. 

I assume it’s a macho thing… we’re supposed to know everything. But take it from me… we don’t. 

For example, I’ve struggled for a month doing what I’m supposed to do.  I watched videos, listened to audios, did email marketing, internet marketing, Facebook Marketing, YouTube Marketing, Solo Ad marketing, and others that are easily accessed. I checked my lead capture pages, NOTHING….. after a full month. 

So, what did I do today…. I just couldn’t stand it any longer…. I MADE THE DREDDED CALL!  Boy was I surprised how quickly I got my answer.  I had submitted TWO trouble tickets and had not received an answer.  I had done research on where the leads are posted (I thought)… again NOTHING… But today, I got my answer.  After talking to Josh on the phone, he said, “just click on the lead capture page” icon and then the “see all leads” button….. I had NEVER seen that button before… Was I surprised to find 243 leads that want more information? èYES!

I “thought” my squeeze pages were capturing the leads AND sending follow-up emails… but they don’t do that… I had to develop my own follow-up pages to be sent out by AWeber… I have an AWeber account but it was not set up …..so I’ve done that today… AND imported my contacts.  So I feel like I’m on my way. 

I’ve also integrated my AWeber and my Facebook page as well as Twitter and AWeber.  I’ve also composed my welcome email and my first follow-up email.  That’s what I’ll do over the weekend… develop more follow-up emails.

That’s it for now… I’m even more excited now that I see the system working.  I just had to do my part… I’m learning !!!

Click HERE to Join me in my ventures into Internet Marketing… looks like it’s working the way it’s supposed to work.

Until tomorrow.
