$127 Chocolate Vomit

$127 Chocolate Vomit: A Gertrude Hawk Disaster

Last night was quite an interesting experience.

Right when I got home, my oldest daughter told
me the dog threw up all over the rug.

Of course, they go on the rug instead of the
wood floor or tile.

So after cleaning up and getting settled, my
youngest daughter comes into my office and
said, they one of the dogs threw up again.

You guessed it…on a totally different rug!

This time, I took a closer look and noticed that
it seemed to look different from their normal
dog food and instead like popcorn and pretzel.

Chocolate covered pretzels to be precise as that
is also what it smelled like too.

About a month ago, my oldest was doing
a fundraiser for school and selling Gertrude
Hawk Chocolates.

Now these are not cheap chocolates and she
ended up selling about 10 varieties and it
ended up costing about $127 for the lot.

Well last night I was wiping it from the floor
over and over and over again.

The UPS delivery person apparently left the
package right outside out door…full of food.

Not that they do not know we have dogs, these
guys deliver to us all the time and will often
bring dog treats to be able to make it to
the door to leave the package.

This time though the dogs got the best of it as
you can see in the pictures, though when
all was said and done, I think Gertrude Hawk
got the best of them!

Not only did they keep throwing up for about
5 hours straight, but one of the dogs decided
(who after not throwing up for about 4 hours)
that indeed he was still sick and vomitted all
over our bed comforter.

So at 1:30 this morning, I was doing laundry
and making the bed and locking dogs in any
area I could that only had a flat, smooth and
non absorbing surface.

Needless to say, I am not a big fan of dogs
and this really put me over the edge for sure.

The good news, at least for my kids and wife
is that the dogs seemed to be doing well this
morning as excess chocolate can have some
very devastating effects on animals.

So if you are like me, you need to vent about things
now and again and I have always found that
getting my thoughts down to my blog and to
share with the social world has helped/

The Pure Leverage platform is one that I can
blog on any topic I want, whether it is Dogs vomiting
up $127 worth of chocolate, or sharing a review
video about a new software I am using.

Regardless of the niche you are in, you too can
start blogging, developing a subscriber or list
base, promote products for commissions, or even
sell your own products that you created.

You can write about anything, and I think I just proved
that above!

Whey don’t you give them a try for free here:

Pure Leverage FREE Trial offer of their blog and
marketing tools

It is definitely worth giving a look!

Can you believe how fast it truly is going?

Are you satsified with how it has gone thus far?

If so, great…If not, you still have plenty of time
to take action, but you do have to implement what
we share with you to make it work.

The past few emails I have focused on inviting you to
our rapidly growing Facebook group

http://TheDavidGardner.com/InstantIncomeSystem

This group is now over 36,000 members AND has close
to 1000 who have actually made some mon.ee on the
tools as well which you can try for fre/e for 7 days here

http://TheDavidGardner.com/InstantIncomeSystem

If not now, when will you start to take action?

You have TWO FULL DAYS TO GET IN ON THE INTERNAL PRELAUNCH
Of Instant Income System, the new GVO Facebook Integrated lead generation system
which expires at midnight EST July 31, 2014.

Turn images on to see the animation

Just yesterday I spent some time with a woman I work
with who is getting her business online and building her
own list (which is one of the most important things you
can do to be successful) and was showing her the tools
you will gain access to which include but are not limited
to the following:

*Autoresponder for building a list up to 10,000 subscribers
*Webinar room for up to 100 attendees for live events
*Video email
*Hosted blog that is fully editable
*Twice weekly live training sessions
*and much more

Now to be honest with you she realized that this was way
to many features to what she really wanted to do this
time around so I also shared with here the smaller option
which only cost $10 and does much of what Pure Leverage
does, but on the small scale.

For example:

*Autoresponder for up to 500 subscribers
*Webinar room for up to 5 attendees
*Hosting for up to 4 blogs or websites
*Weekly live training and more

If you want to start small and later work your way up
you can take action instead with this link compared
to the top link.

http://TheDavidGardner.com/HostWithGVO

Here is an overview video I did a while ago that compares
both Pure Leverage and Host Then Profits which might
help answer more of your questions:

The major thing here is that you take some action
and as I told my friend, it is not about taking the
first step, but jumping into your new challenge
and growth methods.

Here is a no-opt in required PDF I put together
which will help with the smaller starter package
and can also help with the Pure Leverage option
as well.

http://TheDavidGardner.com/GVOQuickstart

Doesn’t matter if it is bad or good, you can
always tweak it later, but make something
right now.

I look forward to helping you anyway I can.

How to run a business with Pure Leverage

How to run a business with Pure Leverage

If you have been wondering how you can make money with Pure Leverage, here is some valuable information you should consider as well as how to get a free 7 day trial of the software here:

http://TheDavidGardner.com/InstantIncomeSystem

Instant Income System

Right now there are thousands of business owners who do NOT have a website and are NOT collecting leads for their business.

Think about going to the store or grabbing a slice of pizza and most likely, you are not asked for your contact details to keep you up to date on special offers or similar.

So in other words, they are letting their customers leave just as quickly as they came.

The lifetime value of the customer might have just dropped many times here.  On the other hand, if you had collected their contact information, you could bring them back in many times over the next months and years with coupons, specials, freebies and more.

You can also ask them to “like” your Facebook page or follow you with other social media.

If there is no contact information collected though, it will more difficult to come about this.  You often see business owners spending thousands of dollars on an ad or newspaper insert that will most likely get thrown away (or at least hopefully recycled) therefore you are not going to experience a return on that piece.

If you are a website owner, missing out on capturing your traffic’s contact information is a major error in your quest to develop a customer base.  People want to be educated, entertain and often buys stuff, though they will never know when you come out with new materials or products if they are not given the opportunity to sign up for your email list through an autoresponder.

It is OK to lose some on the front end in order to achieve a higher lifetime value for your customer down the road.  This could be by giving free toppings on a Pizza to get on the newsletter or an extra penny on your bottle returns for joining.  Then you can stay in touch with your list and entice them to come back for more.

If you are still not sure how any business can make this work for them and why you would want to start using these tools, the folks of GVO were kind enough to put together an awesome series showing you how to incorporate the tools as well as how you can edit the blog easily to make it look exactly how you want it to.

You can see the blue print for success here: http://gvotechsolutions.com/design/blueprint/

This will allow you to see how you can easily get local businesses in your community to try out the marketing tools and services that Pure Leverage offers. (Make sure you see how Terry turns it into a website for Dogs)

Once you realize that $25 a month is nothing compared to what it would cost you to get them all individually, you will be wise to sign up and test out all of these tools which include but are not limited to:

  • Email auto responder for up to 10,000 subscribers
  • Video email
  • Authority blog and hosting
  • Webinar conference room for 100 attendees
  • Life weekly training sessions
  • Facebook support group
  • Live support
  • Much more

You really could spend hundreds of dollars elsewhere if you were to get them through different avenues like Aweber/Get Response, Go2Meeting, HostGator and many more services you would need to do the same thing.  Again, $25 a month is a steal.

You can test the suite of tools out here: http://TheDavidGardner.com/InstantIncomeSystem

Trees getting knocked down should motivate you in your business

How a tree getting knocked down should kick your action into gear

So when I returned after running to the bank to my daughters lacrosse practice, this is what I found at the school: (no one was hurt and it apparently happened the previous afternoon!)

Mayhem at Lacrosse Practice

Now before I go into detail and it is also mentioned in the video, but no one was hurt in this tree damage that was shown at my daughters lacrosse practice in Camillus, NY on July 14, 2014.

If you have ever seen the Mayhem Allstate insurance commercials where you really need to make sure you are prepared in many aspects of life in order to be ready when times come that might not be so comfortable.

Whether you are working or a business online or have a store, you want to make sure you are knowledgeable in that field so that you can be considered the expert there and the clients trust you with your recommendations and act on them, which usually equates to more sales and referrals down the road.

Education is the key to increasing your knowledge.  This can be done many ways which include but are not limited to:

  • Books
  • Courses
  • Videos on Youtube
  • Live events
  • Mastermind groups

Attending, taking notes and learning is just a piece of the puzzle though as you also need to act upon it by sharing what you know (and continue to master) with others who also need to know the information or can benefit from it as well.

Action is the key!

If you do not take action, you will never see results.  That is the absolute 100% guarantee that I can provide you and the only one I can provide.  If you take action you might have connections that make your business take off like a rocket, or you might have a slower growth and that is why you have to consider your business like a marathon, instead of a sprint and be in it for the long haul.

Come take action with me now and align yourself with the right tools and training that Pure Leverage and the newly launched Instant Income System using Facbeook lead generation provide to get you moving in the right direction.

>>Instant Income System<<

What’s Your Association?

You might have also heard that it is your association that will help grow your business and who you are hanging out with that will determine your success.  If you are hanging with people who complain all the time and have a poor mindset and never improve their skill set, you are going to be less likely to show growth than if you were hanging out with people who are working to make their lives and the lives of others that much better.

People who are taking action.

People who are going to events

People who help others

It is time for you to be one of THOSE people.

One who helps others, takes action, and gets out to meet with people and share their ideas.

Do it now here:

Get Started with >>Instant Income System Here and Free trial of Pure Leverage<<

I look forward to getting you moving on your road to success!

Bryan Tracy No Excuses and Napolean Hill Think and Grow Rich

Bryan Tracy No Excuses and Napolean Hill Think and Grow Rich

Readers and Leaders and Leaders are Readers!

Whether you are physically reading a book or listening to the audio version, you are basically getting the same content, though you might learn better through one medium compared to others and that is where the library can come in extremely handy sometimes.

I have been listening to all sorts of audios in my car from marketing, to business, to self help and positive thinking for a few years now and it has helped to put the correct mindset in my thoughts and has given me some awesome ideas over the last couple years that I am still taking action on to this day and will continue to do so as well through time.

In this video I share that I recently finished Napolean Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” and then popped in Bryan Tracy’s “No Excuses!: The Power of Self-Discipline; 21 Ways to Achieve Lasting Happiness and Success” 

Every day you want to be taking some sort of action in your business and I was was very amused in the beginning of Bryan Tracy’s series as he talked about the idea of going to “someday Isle”, a mythical place that too many people visit and spend their time at.  This of course is because, someday isle, or more appropriately “Someday I will” does not really ever happen.

I have yet to see a calendar with “someday” on it.  You need to make today the day you take action.  Even small steps today will result in large growth over time.  You can hear that clip that amused me here:

It is time to make today your someday and take action by taking what you learned and share it with others so that they may benefit from it as well.

If you are on a budget, then get your butt over to the Library as this is where I picked my copies up.  See where else I also find some great marketing books for dirt cheap thanks to others who have given up on their dreams of success:

http://thedavidgardner.com/where-to-find-great-marketing-books-on-a-budget/

You can put your content out there and build your brand with me at Pure Leverage and can take action on joining our Facebook group as well as get a free trial to the awesome marketing tool suite that include but are not limited to email autoresponders, video hosting, blog hosting, webinar conference room, live training and much more here:

Easily add audio mp3 files to your WordPress blog

Easily add audio mp3 files to your WordPress blog

Did you know that you can easily add audio mp3 Files to your wordpress blog?  I figured this out the other day and was pretty pleased.  Now this was originally tested out on my own personal blog, not this one which is run through the powerful Pure Leverage marketing tool suite.

You can see how I put this to work (from the video above) and see an example of the audio from that video on my other blog here: http://thedavidgardner.com/how-to-add-audio-mp3-files-to-your-wordpress-blog-easily/

In a few simple steps you can have your own audio up to compliment the video, or text that appears in your blog.  You could use is as bonus material to get people to come to your blog as well as there could be additional tips or strategies included in the audio that are not included in the text, with a call to action of course.  You could even make it into a game if you wanted through your email bringing visitors to your site, where they have to leave a comment based on what they hear on the audio, not necessarily what they read on the blog (or both for that matter!)

As always it is about taking action and getting your content out there!

So here is a little message for you to take into account!  Just play the recording below!

ALL IN and not just trying to get you
to buy something I have not invested
many hours into myself.

http://thedavidgardner.com/empower-network-compensation-plan-changes-may-2014/

The joining of forces makes the universe
run and you get to start controlling your

Vick Strizheus Banned from Empower Network

Regardless of what you read about, watch in a video clip or hear someone say, the only one who really knows what is going on with Vick Strizheus, is of course Vick Strizheus and his wife and possibly attorneys.

The recent blow up in social media about the number one affiliate and income earner in ANY industry related to MLM leaving or being banned from Empower Network has caused quite a bit of controversy with people trying to jump on Vick and get people to shift over the THEIR teams.

I can be partial here to an extent as I am not a member of Big Idea Mastermind, nor was I one of the people sponsored by Vick Strizheus.

What I do know is this.  Vick has provided some of the best traffic generation techniques and strategies I have seen and studied in my 5 years marketing online building my business part time.

The Internet Traffic Formula course as well as bonus software and traffic agency groups suggested to us were things I have not used in the past to the extent I am starting to use them now and have resulted in gains in my list size already.

It has been shared by Vick Strizheus in his letter this morning seen here, that he never said we was walking away from Empower Network and will also continue to deliver top notch content from the Internet Traffic Formula course (which is a product being sold by some of the same Empower Network affiliates, making thousands of dollars off of it, that jumped down Vicks throat last night)

See Vick Strizheus’s explanation and transparent description of the events leading to all the hype:

http://vick-strizheus.com/truth-about-empower-network/

After reading, of course you need to come to the personal realization that is has nothing to do with Vick Strizheus in regards to whether you or I for that matter are successful using the trainings and tools provided in the Empower Network suite of programs.

As I always say to my students and players (I coach a couple varsity sports) that it really is not about the coach, but what they do in that “You get out of it what you put into it”

I still think Vick Strizheus is a marketing genius and look forward to continuing the Internet Traffic Formula course and I also think that Empower Network is a great business plan and opportunity to learn how to build a marketing business online and reach for your goals of economic independence.

I welcome all to come and test out the Empower Network here and start training to grow their business as well and see for yourself the power of the training’s, family and tools we have there.

Getting Traffic to your website and turning it into cash with Daegan Smith at Pure Leverage live

Getting Traffic to your website and turning it into cash with Daegan Smith at Pure Leverage live

As I continue to dive through my old notes from the original Pure Leverage live event I came across Daegan Smith’s speech on Getting Traffic to your website and turning it into cash.

Daegan Smith at Pure Leverage live

Daegan Smith at Pure Leverage live

AS he said, “If you have the right audience, you can never go broke!”

The big issue of course is getting that audience there AND keeping them entertained.

For that of course you would need a capture page and more importantly a system to capture emails on that page (or other contact information) to be able to engage with and follow up with your subscribers.

That is where Pure Leverage and their awesome tools come in.

You still have to be able to drive traffic to your site so lets hit upon some of the key aspects of what he shared with us which are pretty consistently bringing sales to marketers worldwide and in many niches.

One of the biggest questions is whether to go Paid or Free in the marketing and groups will argue which is better and more lucrative.  If you want it fast, Paid would be the way to go and test your content.  If you can be more patient, and wait for organic results, you can focus on free methods.

On your lead capture page you want the viewer to feel safe, but at the same time curious and wanting more so that they are willing to give you their email address (note: the less you ask for the more they are willing to give and once they become a paying customer, they will provide their details anyways, especially if you have to ship them a physical product).

If you think about your own mindset the last time you bought something, take some of those same aspects and put them into your own follow ups.  For example, what was it that made you want to BUY NOW!  Take that same idea and tweak it to fit your pages.

You want to be able to always see if you can compete with your own pages to see if they will bring better conversion rates, and having or running a split test if the way to go.  You would send half of your traffic to site A and the other half to site B and see which one gets a better click through rate and/or ROI, or return on investment to see which one you want to spend more time and effort on.

These are some of the ways to drive paid traffic:

  • Solo Ads
  • Banner Ads
  • Pay Per Click

These are some free methods of driving traffic:

  • Youtube
  • Blog
  • Article writing

Having a balance of both is great, though at least get the free options up and running when you first get started online as you never know what people will search for through google, bing, yahoo and other search engines.

If you are not collecting your own leads, you should start doing it here now with Pure Leverage

Reliable Reach Autoresponder Email service is a new GVO Product

Reliable Reach Autoresponder Email service is a new GVO Product

Reliable Reach, the new autoresponder only service from GVO is launching on or about May 1st it seems and is paying out 300% on a $9.97 product.

I just found the artists website who put the site together and could see some of the details, though the site it not live for signups yet. (Se sure to sign up on my page here to find out more and stay up to date, or sign up for my email training and product selling guide with email at http://onyalist.com/EmailCashPrinter/barefootpainting

With Reliable Reach, for every 5 members you bring in within a week, Joel Therien, the CEO of GVO, is promising 300%, or basically $30 and then another 100% on the residual month before it goes to the normal 50% on the continuing months.

It also looks as though members are going to get 5000 subscribers with upgrade options for the super low price of just $9.97 a month

Why is this important for people in business and ANY Network Marketing company…A couple ideas

1) Some people do not want all the other bells and whistles that the hosting or Pure Leverage offer as they might already have a blog or website up and running, but might need the autoresponder still.

2) It actually is a great lead in for the Pure Leverage funnel. When people see that it would only cost an additional $15 a month to get all the other tools, it becomes a no-brainer
and thus Reliable Reach is going to be a great front end product for the GVO family of tools.

Keep your eyes open to future blog posts or emails if you signed up from me and from Joel to know when you can sign up yourself and also be able to promote as this is going to unite people from EVERY opportunity.

Seriously though….what other program out there can you see fitting betting with another program than one that lets you build a list of subscribers to train, educate, develop relationships with and of course get people interested in buying your stuff!

Let me know if you have questions. One major thing you would need is to either be a member of Reliable Reach yourself, which you should be able to upgrade to after/on May 1st or be a member of Pure Leverage and take part in the reseller program so you can qualify for those 300% commissions.

You can join Pure Leverage and be on top of things when they launch here:

http://TheDavidGardner.com/Leverage

Not bad for a $19.97 a month reseller fee to make as many Reliable Reach sales as you can make each and every month.

Thursday is going to be fun!
