HeyMalc — How d'ya Do That?
GTD Summary

This is a great GTD Summary (Getting Things Done) at a TEDx talk, and it’s given by David Allen, who developed this terrific time management system.

It’s classic David Allen.

He says that when we are in crisis we are really focused and often have the ability to make quick decisions. However, we are under stress.

The best outcome for Getting Things Done, as far as David Allen is concerned, is being just as decisive all the time – and without any of the stress.

Post image for The Best IM Podcast

This is the best IM podcast I have found. It’s from Amy Porterfield.

I am an avid listener to podcasts. I subscribe to them using the Downcast app on my smart phone, and then listen to them either via a Bluetooth speaker when cooking, etc, or plug them into the car stereo.

I’ve tried all the Internet marketing podcasts I can find, but there’s only one I like: Amy Porterfield’s.

So I’m left with podcasts on news and current affairs, stock market and shares, comedy – and Amy’s.

Post image for Cialdini – Improve Your Copywriting

Roberts Cialdini published the book “Influence” in 1984, showing how it was possible to improve your copywriting to powerfully influence your readers. Or influence anyone else – such as colleagues and your children.

Specifically, Cialdini dug into his 35 years’ experience and collected tons of scientific research to identify the six key principles which influence people.

These six key principles should be burned into the brain of every potential marketer.

Post image for How to Master Sales Funnels

The truth is, the sooner you master sales funnels, the sooner you are likely to be successful in Internet marketing.

A simple sales funnel usually sets out to give a free front-end product with an upsell to the paid product. (“Front-end” just means the first thing the customer gets hold of.)

There is no reason why you can’t create both of these products yourself without massive effort.

For better time management and to use your time efficiently it essential to write down every single thing you have to do.

Jeff Walker came across the product launch method when he was selling a financial product – helping people to make money from stock market shares.

He just sort of worked it out himself, then later he found out that no-one else was doing it.

Since then his method has been successfully applied in pretty much every niche you can think of – from dog training to tennis coaching.

Jason Fladlien is one of my favourite Internet marketers. The reason is that he does one particular thing REALLY well.

He brilliantly “deconstructs” complex processes we all use in Internet marketing, makes them super-simple.

On top of that, his training products are a very reasonable cost.

Even today, I frequently reach for these training tools of Jason’s, when I want to write an article quickly and efficiently, write sales copy, or want clues on how to do a great product launch.

If you need to know how to rotate a video 90° I explore the ways to do it here.

The scenario: I have recorded a video on my smart phone of my exercise coach performing a move. I want to watch it later to check I am doing it right. I transfer it to my computer – and it plays sideways.

Annoying!

How do I turn it round a quarter of a turn quickly and easily?
