We are a day late with our weekly update this week or should I say, I am late with the weekly update. You see, this is what happens when you put way too much on your plate. I have a serious habit of trying to do too much. It has been one of my limiting factors my entire career. While being aggressive would normally be seen as a great personality trait, it hold me back sometimes because I have too many projects and not enough time to finish any of them. This same thing I find happens to a lot of internet marketers who have shiny object syndrome. Too many new products being released and each one sounds like it is the answer to our prayers, yet in most cases they end up falling flat. Very few marketers have the answers to success, but a huge amount of marketers like to tell you they do.
I can’t count the number of emails I read over the past few days about the changes to the Google Algorithm this past week and how different marketers already had the answer to Google’s aggressive actions against Blog Link Networks. If you read a lot of higher end blogs like SEOMoz and SearchEngineLand, you will see that everyone is still waiting for the next action from Google. But, for some reason a couple guys who do Warrior Special Offers have the answer. I don’t think so. It is all about Marketing. Now, that being said, I do have answers and I will be placing them in the training area in the next week to 10 days. This training will not be THE ANSWER. But a series of safe solutions to keep Google happy and your site’s profiting. I can’t tell you how many emails I receive on a daily basis about the single best new product ever created. Funny thing is, the emails all come from the same people. How does that work? All I can say is, Buyer Beware.
Between Gary Prendergast and I (Mike Johnson), we have basically run the same training and software on an upgraded basis (we upgrade and change as the web changes) for the last 3 years. Why? Because it works. To chase the next golden Goose more often ends up with nothing but a broken egg. The reason I am saying all this is the biggest reason for failure in this business is a lack of focus. Straying from one thing to another. Even when we release the update to the Auto Blog Blueprint, you will see that a large amount of the SEO Plan and Core Plugins will be exactly the same. Why? Because if it works, it works. There are great plugins and software which can help you succeed. This does not mean you need all of them as the “email fairy” tells you. Be careful. Stay focused. Success will come. Follow the Profit.FM system and ask questions in the Forum when you need help. We will help and listen.
This afternoon Gary and I held the second Profit.FM Webinar/ Live Training Event. It ended up running for 1 Hour and 45 Minutes. A great webinar with loads of related questions about our awesome Content.FM WordPress Plugin, but we also answered a ton of questions about the Profit.FM course and 1 at the end about the Google Algorithm update. I would like to thank all the Profit.FM Members who attended for making it very worthwhile for all of us. The Video for the Content.FM Webinar will be posted in the Member Area tomorrow morning.
*Note: In the Webinar we talked about how we are working on adding the ArticleBuilder.com API and the TextBroker API’s to Content.FM. These will make an incredibly powerful plugin even that much more powerful.
Social.FM Update to Facebook Timeline Version
This past week we finished the update to the Social.FM WordPress Plugin and made it compatible for the new update of the Facebook Timelines for Business Pages. We have a subsequent update coming to add a few more features to aid in this transition as well. We are excited about the possibilities of this new format and are looking forward to taking advantage of the “New” Facebook.
