=========================================
==> Timely Topics
=========================================

(To  paraphrase William Shakespeare:)
"To Advertise or Not To Advertise, That is the Question"

I guess conventional thinking would strongly advise us
to seek advertising for our ezines. After all, the ads do help
to defray operating costs and do introduce elements of
interest beyond the immediate topics of an issue. In fact,
we know some people buy periodicals "just for the ads".

Advertising revenue, however, is not a major income
stream for market niche ezines. Furthermore, given the
competition from an ever expanding list of new ezines,
rates for Ad space are unlikely to rise, thereby creating
a flat, no-growth source of revenue. It's easy to determine
what your Ad space is worth. Simply multiply the cost of
Ad space (say $10-$20) times the number of Ads per
issue (say 4) times the number of issues (say 26) per
year. What do we have? $1,040 - $2,080 in income.
That's not much money! Oh! Add another $1,000-$1,500
for Solo Ads. That's still not much money!

So, why do we publish ezines? Well, it's not for the
advertising dollars! In fact, the more we, as publishers
of ezines, become focused on the search for advertising
dollars, the more we stray from the original purpose of
an ezine. That purpose, the sole reason for the existence
of an ezine is to promote a web site! An ezine is a
marketing tool. It should bring its readership back to
the real revenue generator - the web site!

As an ezine publisher, you may want to ask yourself
if there's a more profitable way to use that Ad space
"real estate" in your ezine? Could you use that space
to generate revenue from your own Ads selling your own
products? How about using the space to promote your
affiliated programs? After all, the products you sell and
the affiliations you've made are tied closer to your market
niche than some of the advertising you are offered.
What do you think?

Apply the top 8 secrets to successfully work at home by
Carlos Garcia Publisher of the "Wealthy Secrets" Newsletter
http://www.wealthysecrets.net/members/t.php?rid=5950

What I'm about to reveal to you are 8 proven secret strategies,
that will help you accomplish positive results with the time
you spend on your home business.

Ready?

1. Imagine yourself as the CEO of a major corporation.
This technique will put you in the proper frame of mind,
to envision yourself as your own boss, and that you are in
complete control of your business. As the CEO of your
corporation, it is very crucial that you project where your
business will spiral towards in the next 5 years. Remember
A DREAM written down with a date becomes a GOAL.
A goal broken down becomes a PLAN..
A plan backed by ACTION makes your dream come true..
From "The Millionaire Mentor" by Greg S. Reid

Therefore, you need to…

2. Set Specific Goals

Goals are like train tracks. They keep you moving forward
in the direction you want to go.  -Vicky Smith

When setting proper goals you need to exercise
2 simple strategies:

First and foremost, *Set Your Long Term Goals*
(a.k.a. Dreams)

The bottom line is this, if you want to head
in the right direction, then you must know
where you want to be in 3 months, 6 months,
1 year, 3 years, even 5 years from now.

This technique is amazingly effective
when you type your goals down, and print them out.
(Be sure you do it, I'll tell you why later.)

Secondly, you must always set and accomplish
daily goals, so that you will achieve your long
term dreams (goals). When you know where you want
to be and where you are headed, then you will
know exactly what you need to do to get there.

This will definitely get the ball rolling
for you to set your daily goals.

3. Set up a *daily* To-Do Lists -
Now that you have distinguished your daily goals,
the easiest way to accomplish them is by working
on a priority basis always working
on the most important task first.

Design your daily to-do list at the end
of your work day, so you know exactly
what you need to do when you wakeup in the morning.
Make your daily tasks realistic, and be sure that
they are accomplished. Think of each task you
accomplish as a stepping stone towards your dreams.

The key here is for you to go to bed at night
without having any regrets, and knowing that
you have achieved everything you could that day.

Here's a neat trick:  Use Microsoft Outlook's
task manager to prioritize your daily To-Do list.
Outlook will let you manage your tasks on a per hour
basis. It is very crucial to avoid procrastination
if you plan on getting where you want to be in 5 years.

Here's the best part: Outlook will keep reminding you,
if your tasks have not been accomplished. This gives
you absolutely no excuses not to work.

Which brings me to my next point…

4. Devote a *specific amount* of hours each and every day..

..to work on your business. To avoid getting side tracked,
DO NOT surf the net, close your instant messenger
conversations during this period of time.

The more side tracked you become, the further away
you will be from your dreams.

5. Develop a positive routine

Research proves that eating breakfast every morning,
will help you to think better, and even work more
efficiently on your business.

Always take 15 - 30 minute breaks during the day
to avoid straining your eyes.  Have a good night's
sleep, (6 to 8 hours is recommended.) Most importantly,
try exercising daily because this will help fuel
energy through out your body.

6. Stay organized, and focused

Tape your goals list on the wall by your work area,
so that you will be reminded of what you are
striving towards, each and everyday.

This important step alone will help guide you
towards your ultimate goal, and keep you focused
on what you should be doing.

If you ever feel that you don't have the energy to work
on your business, simply take a look at your long term
goals list, and let it remind you of your dreams.

Use this power to help you move forward
in the direction you want to go.

7. Check your email ONCE every hour

Some of us love the idea of receiving email daily,
and in most cases would likely check it every few minutes.
This can be a very devastating routine that you will
become accustomed to, be sure you eliminate
it before it becomes routine.

The real secret to running a successful home based business,
is to spend your time wisely and efficiently,
by developing a positive daily routine.

8. Have fun

This may be the most important step of all.
Make sure that you enjoy every minute you spend
working on your business. If you can't stand the idea
of getting up in the morning to work, then you might
as well look forward to going back to that J.O.B.
(Just Over Broke ) you dread.

You must enjoy what you do,
in order to fully succeed and
accomplish your long term goals.

I have given you these 8 powerful strategies,
the only way that they will work for you
is if you apply them right now.

I wish you the best of luck with your home business,
and I hope that you have a prosperous year.
