Are the old marketing methods turning you into a slave? Are you capitalizing on the newer, more powerful ways to market your products and services?

Are the old marketing methods turning you into a slave? Are you capitalizing on the newer, more powerful ways to market your products and services?

My friend Tatyana knows a thing or two about marketing a business, product or service.

Actually, Tatyana knows a LOT about marketing and building your brand and increasing your visibility!

Want to reach buyers directly? We often feel like slaves to the old marketing methods and we often stay in the “slave cabin”, feeling no freedom on how to express our thoughts, our opinions, sharing stories about what we do, etc…

In this video you can learn how important it is to use PR 2.0 strategies that combine Public Relations and WEB 2.0 …

Question Of The Day: Are Writing Skills Required To Be A Successful Blogger? Yes or No?

Question Of The Day: Are Writing Skills Required To Be A Successful Blogger? Yes or No?

Every now and then I get asked how important writing skills are to blogging success.

Today I wanted to take a moment and share that question with you and get your thoughts and ideas about the necessity of writing skills as a blogger.

Do you feel that you need to be a Stephen King or some other literary great in order to be successful? Do you believe that you need a degree in the English language or in literature before you can become a success?

Take a look at this illustration and then come back here and share your thoughts please….

Are Writing Skills Required To Be A Successful Blogger?

Personally, I don’t feel that having these amazing writing skills are a requirement. I mean, for goodness sakes, just take a look at the posts here at XavierNelson.net and you’ll notice real quick that I am not one of those literary geniuses, nor was I born with a golden pen 🙂

I write the way I feel, I write from the heart, letting my thoughts flow to paper (well, to the keyboard) and I don’t look back.

Sure, when I released ‘Words Of Wisdom Worth A Second Thought‘ I did go back and clean it up, rereading it a few times and tweaking a few items here and there, but for the most part, I left it the way it originally flowed from my brain through my fingers to the keyboard.

The way I see it, in my own humble opinion, I am not writing this to impress you, but to share something with you.

But that’s just me…

So, what are your thoughts? Should you be a trained writer and have a certain level of writing skills in order to succeed as a blogger?

Be Super, Be A Champion, Become A Super Champion Right Now….

You definitely don’t want to miss this….

In a hurry? Visit here now…

A lot of people want to improve their life in some way or another.

Sometimes it is something related to our personal development, sometimes something professional, other times we want to improve things that require extra funding and in those times it can be extremely frustrating if you don’t have a way to increase your income through more overtime or getting more in bonuses and commissions or even getting a raise.

All too often getting a part time job isn’t an option either when you are working a ton of hours each week.

So what do you do???

Simple, look for other money sources!

A lot of people make crafts to sell at fleamarkets or swap meets. Some decide to start their own business as a part time endeavor to make more money. Others become authors in the hopes of sharing their stories and maybe generating some extra revenue from royalties.

No matter what you choose, there are always some ways available to everyone if you just put your mind to it and follow through!

You can also choose to be Super, be a Champion, better yet become a Super Champion and while you are not going to be trying to leap a building in a single bound, you also don’t need to bitten by a radio active spider.

Instead, what you need to do is actually real simple…

Visit this page right now and let Scott show you how to easily add more income each month that will allow you to take care of those extra things you desire in life.

Scott will guide you through an extremely effective and easy to follow system that could even allow you to add 10Grand to your bottomline (of course this is no promise or guarantee of what your results might be, that wholly depends on you and your efforts).

But think about it for just a moment, what would it mean to you and your family if you only added an extra 1,000 or two thousand next month? Wouldn’t that help you?

And the good news is that you don’t have to spend 40 hours a week to make it happen for yourself either.

Go check out what others are saying about the guide Scott has created when you visit this page….

Scott is the real deal and is not just telling you about some hypothetical mumbo jumbo he has heard through the grapevine from someone else but it’s an easy to read, digest and follow guide that explains what he has done time and time again to generate extra cashflow.

I particularly liked the way he presents everything in his 51 page guide, simple to understand and follow, in plain english.
(I can’t stand techno mumbojumbo, make it simple and I am happy lol 🙂 )

Go take a look at his guide right now and let Scott show you how he did it and allow him to guide you as you do it!

Are you making enough to continue to keep up with rising prices?

Are you making enough to continue to keep up with rising prices?

I am not sure if you keep an eye on the cost of living or on inflation, but now and then I take a peek, just to make sure I am still on track to reach my goals and that means I have to take inflation levels into consideration because $1 today doesn’t buy as much as a single dollar did just a few short years ago.

According to the USInflationCalculator, just between 2010 and 2012 there has been a difference of 5.4% already.

If you run your own company or are working for a salary, you need to keep in mind that the cost of living is always rising.

This means that if your job gives you an annual raise that is less than the annual increase in the cost of living you are actually being paid less than the year before, because that same dollar amount on your check is now worth less than the year before.

We’ve all seen the rise of prices when it comes to our daily living, from food to gasoline and beyond, everything is significantly higher.

When you are negotiating for a salary increase keep that in mind. For example, if you haven’t gotten a raise since 2010 then you need to keep that 5.4% inflation rate between 2010 and 2012 in mind and adjust your request accordingly.

If you only ask for an extra 5.4% for your raise you are really not getting anything extra, you are just pulling even…

If you are running your own business and sales increased 10% since 2010 they really haven’t because of the rate of inflation. You really have only gone up about 4.6%!

Of course there are a lot of other factors to consider but I believe this simplified way of looking at it gives you the right idea and definitely is something to think about!

Xavier

Rebel Rock Racing’s Bucky Lasek Takes The Silver Medal At The X Games

Rebel Rock Racing’s Bucky Lasek Takes The Silver Medal At The X Games

Bucky Lasek, famously known for his skateboarding success and medal collector at the X Games has done it once again.

Bucky will grind a rail anytime he can, as he even showed recently during a race where his Subaru ended up grinding on a cement rail. Nothing stops Bucky, which is one of the secrets to his success; that and a ton of practice and preperation.

Bucky Lasek is also one of the drivers for the Rebel Rock Racing team (founded by music and entertainment giant Jim Jonsin).

Bucky never quits and is always looking for new ways to entertain and excite his fans, just as he did this year at the 2012 X Games, earning the Silver Medal after a long and hard fought battle.

Check out Bucky Lasek’s Silver Medal run at the 2012 X Games:

Here’s the wild part…

Bucky never stops, never quits practicing and never gives up!

That’s what makes him a winner and the same applies to the entire Rebel Rock Racing team!

A great lesson for anyone desiring to succeed in life and beyond!!!

Here’s to your success,
Xavier
