Google highly respects blogs because they offer fresh new contest regularly. Start your blog and talk about whatever you sell. People will actually begin reading it. It's free and it's easy.

9 ... DOUBLE YOUR INCOME by Opening a YouTube Account
Register with YouTube. It's really really easy and you can also include your photo and a bio about yourself. Just your bio and photo will attract prospects and customers.
Have you opened your YouTube account?
10 ... DOUBLE YOUR INCOME by Posting Your Videos
Now, take lots of videos and simply begin posting them. If you have a video recorder, then use it. If you don't, simply go to a high tech store and buy a FLIP video. They cost about $160. Just make a video and post it. It does not have to be great; you just need to get started.
And, here is a hot tip for you. Take whatever is exciting in the news and think of some bridge that will allow you to begin with the hot news and then bridge to your topic. For example, Obama's Presidency is still hot news and maybe you are a Realtor. Then make a video which begins with the question "How will Obama's presidency impact real estate prices?" and then answer that question to the best of your ability. In the tags, you can list "Obama" and "inauguration" besides the ones you would have used anyway like "real estate". In this way, all the people who use Google or YouTube to search for "Obama" - tens of millions of them - have some chance of getting to your video.Are you posting your own videos on your YouTube account?
11 ... DOUBLE YOUR INCOME by Opening a Facebook Page and a Facebook Fan Page
It's really easy. You will be shocked - almost immediately, people will find you and ask if they can be your Facebook Friend. I accept everyone, even if I do not recognize them.
Once you have a page, open a group which is a group of people you want to sell to. If you are a Realtor in Miami, then open a group called "Get Rich In Real Estate In Miami" or "Sell Your Home Fast in Miami" or "Buy Real Estate at HUGE discounts in Miami". People will join and then you can send messages to them. They will be your clients. And, it's free. This is, by the way, how Obama won the election - he was more savvy about
Facebook and the other social networking sites than McCann. Now, it's your turn.
Have you opened a Facebook page and have you opened a Facebook Fan Page?
12 ... DOUBLE YOUR INCOME by opening a Twitter account
I had never even heard of Twitter. Then someone asked me to follow them. I did because I knew that person well. So, I opened an account - it took seconds - and then I sat and waited. Wow. Today, thousands of people follow me.
Have you opened a Twitter page?
13 ... DOUBLE YOUR INCOME by "Salting" Your Clients and Prospects
You can lead a horse to water, and you CAN make him drink!! Just salt the oats. Just add salt to the horse's rations of oats and then when he gets to the water, he will drink like crazy!!
You can do the same process with your clients and prospects. Get them all excited about something so that they are really eager when the time comes.
Have you committed to at least experimenting with this idea of "salting" your clients and prospects?
14 ... DOUBLE YOUR INCOME by Inspiring Your Clients
"Snowmen fall to earth, unassembled" - It is your job to see snow, but envision snowmen. Most people see snow, and envision traffic jams and snow-shoveling.
"You never know how far you can go till you risk going too far" T. S. Eliot - I risked going to far when I joined Polar Race, a 350-mile foot-race to the North Pole braving -40 degree cold and hauling a sled with all my provisions weighing 100 pounds. That foot-race took me one entire month, April 2007. I risked going too far and I made it. You will have fun taking risks. It's way more fun than watching TV!! Take risks in your life and in your business.
In which ways are you risking going too far to inspire your clients?
15 ... DOUBLE YOUR INCOME by Finding a Product or Service you can Sell
Start by creating an educational product on anything you know even a little about.
How are you offering the same products and services you've offered for years? That is not a good recipe for success. Be bold.
16 ... DOUBLE YOUR INCOME by Getting Content for your Products
If you do not know much, then interview those who are really knowledgeable. If you like chocolate cookies, then interview people who are expert at making them and selling them and then you have a product!! Also, video tape them and use those videos on YouTube to sell your website and product. Or, sell the videos.
There are THREE ways to get great content - for free - which you can then sell for money !! Here are the three ways:
1.Your own Wisdom ... You already know a certain amount about the topic. Type, audio or videotape what you know.
2.Google ... Simply type your questions or issues into Google and get lots of information.
3.Experts ... Interview experts in your field. Interview anyone making a lot of money doing what you do. Why will experts give you their wisdom for free? Because Experts LOVE to share what they know. Audio or video their interviews and you suddenly have wisdom in your educational products.
