Mr. Gamble will also be the first to admit that online marketing is no picnic and that he was not the brightest star in the sky.  “I made absolutely NO money online my first 3 years,”  he admits,  I was even horrible at playing video games!”

This student has come a long way, however, and will share his story with all listeners who tune in to here him at 6 pm.  If you have any interest in saving both time and money with Internet marketing, DON’T MISS THIS SHOW!

Mike “The Font” Wesely has created  several innovative software programs, such as Shopping Carts, Auto Responder, Content Management Systems and Social Networks. If you ask him what makes him the happiest, however, he will tell you it is helping others achieve success in marketing.

Michael Craig ran into him at a recent Social Marketing Workshop where he was a guest speaker, and got a chance to ask him a few questions . . .  

Craig:  I see you everywhere on Twitter!  How did you get to be so highly ranked, for Pete’s sake?!

Wesely:  When I found out Twitter had a ranking system, I set out to crack the code, and did. I have been ranked as high as #2 in the world on Twitter and Twitter Elite, and maintained top 20 rankings for months on end.  I have also helped a lot of other people use Twitter more effectively through my former online TV show,  and through training videos.

Craig:  There is word on the street that there’s a new Internet “boss” in town.  Can you tell me more about that?

Wesely:  Not much.  I will say, however, that I’m very proud of my association with Article Cartel, a system that helps websites dominate the Search Engines.  I am one of the few people in the world who actually knows David “The Boss Man” Cabrini well enough to join his Honorary Master Council for the Cartel.  I was present at the Conception.

Craig:  C’mon.  Can’t you reveal ANY secrets? 

Wesely:  I tell you what.  As long as there is no recording, I may just do that.  The biggest one relates to why everyone needs to implement Article Marketing, and how (with the help of The Article Cartel) you can even place Videos, Optin Boxes, Buy Buttons, and Links (even Affiliate Links) right in your Articles.

Craig:  I’ve heard of article maketing, but why is that so important?

Wesely:  It’s all about the rankings.  Get ranked high in the Search Engines and you Will Be successful. Now with 1.5 Million unique visitors per month and 4000 web sites, Article Cartel gives you an offer you can’t refuse, and makes it easy and simple to dominate the Search Engines.

Craig: Other than developing all those systems, and being a key figure in the Cartel, what else has Mike Wesely done?

Wesely:  I was a #1 Best Seller with Co-Authors Dr. Wyne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Dr. Randy E. Smith, and Mark Victor Hanson.  I’ve also been kicked in the butt by a 9-foot tall Ostrich.  But that’s another story for another time . . .

Craig:  I look forward to hearing that one!  will you come on my blog talk radio show and talk about it?

Wesely:  Be delighted.

Social Marketing Means Connecting

Social Marketing Workshop

If you are as old as I am (few people are these days) do you remember sales training where you learned to stick your foot in the door,  talk a lot, guide the conversation, overcome objections, and push the product before they got buyer’s remorse?  I do.

Consequently, I used to think (and rightfully so at the time) that the words “selling” and “marketing” were bad words.  Thankfully I found out the definition has really CHANGED in this age of the Internet and Social media!

This past weekend, I had the privilege of spending quality time with some of the premier Social Media (Social Marketing) experts in the country.  Gina Gaudio-Graves, Ron Capps, and Mike Wesely shared their success stories, love and wisdom with a small group of us gathered at the Defoor Center in Atlanta – an event sponsored by online marketer, Phil Cullum.

The biggest thing I walked away with is this:  Selling online (or off-line)

 does not mean pushing stuff onto people they don’t want.  Selling and social marketing means connecting with the customer first, getting lots of feedback, customizing products and services based on this feedback, and delivering them in a way that really serves the customer. 

 The Internet has transformed the way we do business into a much more customer-oriented community.  By getting to know each other as friends and associates, “marketing” becomes simply another word for social networking and connecting heart-to-heart.

Michael Craig was a call-in guest on their Blog Talk Radio Show “Niche Radio” on Saturday (see link below)!

This weekend I’m having the rare privilege of spending time with some of the greatest minds in social media, social marketing and Internet marketing in the country – Gina Gaudio Graves, Mike Wesely and Ron Capps.

If you get a change to learn from these folks, TAKE IT!  You can find them anywhere . . . just do a Google search on their names and you’ll get close to a zillion sources!!



Once upon a time there was this older fellow who lost his sanity to technology.

He blogged.  He tweeted.  He even facebooked and LinkedIn-ed.  Still there were more and more people wanting more and more of his time to buy more and more of their stuff-ideas-beliefs-and-more.

Eventually he went a little nuts, took his boat out, and tossed his computer and I-phone into the lake.  Afterwards he took out his fishing pole, threw the line in, and spent the rest of the day floating around while mumbling under his breath.

Everyone – especially his kids – said he was insane. “How can you just give up the ability to connect with new friends, customers, prospects, and followers???”  He just grabbed his bait box and walked out the door, smiling.

He fished for months, and even caught something once in a while.  Then one day, Conan O’Brien found the guy had stopped tweeting, and called him up.  He got his answering machine… “I’ve gone fishing.  Leave a message and I might get back to you.”

“This is Conan O’Brien.  This is your lucky day.  I’m going to give you a million dollars for being the only American left whose NOT tweeting!”

Since he was always out fishing, this guy never got his messages.  He did, however, catch the best bass ever found in that lake!

So what’s the moral of the story? Live your passion, and don’t let the technology overwhelm you.  When it does, stop.  Or at least slow down.

Is technology really taking over our lives and driving us crazy?  Are we becoming like the humanoids in The Matrix – dumbed-down versions of real people?

Maybe.  I don’t know.  What I DO know is that if you have a passion for something, you will find ways to share this thing with others.  Technology – as overwhelming as it can be – is simply a tool.  It is simply a way to share your passion with others.

Young people take to this stuff like a duck to water.  They relish the thought of having 15 applications running simultaneously while they drive or sit in class.  They instinctively see how their passion is translated to sharing.

I remember these thoughts of wanting to ditch the whole thing.  Heck, I even bought a cabin in the woods where I CAN’T get cell phone messages or the Internet!  Its a place I can go to de-stress, unwind.  Relax.

So find the time to unwind.  The act with passion.  Don’t have a passion?  Simply ask yourself this before going to sleep:  “What would I be doing, if I didn’t have to ‘earn a living’?”  Then let the answer come to you during the night.

Once you have your passion.  Start writing about it.  If you don’t write, talk!  There are programs out there that can write for you!

However you do it, here are the steps to harness technology for your passion:

  • Create a blog
  • Write (or record) stuff,
  • Use keywords and link to other interesting sites,
  • Have or some other bookmarking site bounce your posts around the internet, and
  • Do this a few hundred times,
  • Then go fishing!

Not a fisherman?  No problem.  Do something else you love.  If you are blogging about your passion, go learn more about that passion from another source.  Play.  Have fun.  Learn how to de-stress . . . your own way!
