The Appeal of “The 4 Hour Workweek” and the “Agloco Advantage”

Recently Timothy Ferriss released 4-Hour Workweek and the buzz and excitement about this book is now everywhere.

What’s the appeal of the book?

Well... making money is one thing. You can become a workhorse, have you bank account swell with funds... while you watch life pass you by. Ferriss’ best-seller The 4-Hour Workweek isn’t about just making money, but creating a LIFE!

4 Hour Workweek teaches you, the reader, how to build a lifestyle by outsourcing and automating your work (in your business or in your personal life).

This same underlying theme is what the “Dear Employee” financial series discusses. The Dear Employee series looks at the importance of building automated income streams (for more money) and taking advantage of the outsourcing and freelancing networks (for more time).

Each of these Dear Employee books is now available for FREE as part of the Agloco Advantage at

Internet Marketing On Squidoo - Boost Your Online Profits

Squidoo is a huge part of the new Web 2.0 form of internet marketing and has been since 2005. Squidoo allows anyone to create a one page website, called a lens, which focuses on virtually any subject for free. A particular lens can draw information from numerous sources and place it all on one page for easy viewing and reading.

A lens master can create numerous lenses on a subject or subjects, focusing attention on a different aspect of the subject within each lens. On the other had, a lens master can also make numerous lenses that cover many different topics, reflecting the lens masters different interests and expertise.

Internet Marketing on Squidoo

One of the many good uses for Squidoo lenses is to use the lens as part of an overall internet marketing strategy. One or more good lenses can help to bring attention, traffic, and credibility to a product or business by providing valuable information and resources. Additionally, the lens can help to establish the author as an expert in their field and a person whose advice should be taken seriously.

The single page websites that Squidoo allows an author to create are called lenses because the finished website focuses on a single subject or idea. This focused attention on a subject is very attractive to users of the internet who are constantly searching for answers to questions or problems. The internet search engines whose job it is to find good, focused websites that will answer the questions or problems are attracted to the lenses.

Therefore, the use of Squidoo lenses has become a valuable internet resource for building and marketing a business.

Basic Modules

There are numerous tools available on Squidoo to build a lens. Most of these tools are called modules. The modules create separate sections on the overall web page. Other tools available on Squidoo include the author's biographical area, a keyword list called tags, the lens title or headline, a lensroll, and RSS subscription for readers.

One of the basic modules allows the author to write short articles about various aspects of the lens's subject. Another basic module makes it easy to list and describe appropriate links to offsite information that complements the subject of the lens. For internet marketing purposes the author can use these basic modules to link to their own websites, thereby driving traffic to their own business.

Other basic modules provide links to commercial internet resources such as eBay, Amazon, Starbucks, CompUSA, and many other businesses where the reader can be directed to the author's own merchandise offerings or to merchandise and information that supports the author's own business. These modules can also provide some income, as the lens maker earns a small percentage of the sales of merchandise on these commercial websites.

Interactive Modules

Many modules are interactive in nature, which is why Squidoo is considered to be part of the new Web 2.0 category of interactive websites. Readers can respond to many of the modules, adding their own favorites to certain categories. For example, readers can add their favorite YouTube videos to the list of videos on the lens or add their favorite pictures to the lens's list. Additionally, readers can add their favorite links to a list of links that the author has provided on the lens, or they can add their comments or responses to questions asked by the lens's author. One of the favorite interactive modules is the voting module where readers can vote on a question by the lens's author or vote on a listing of favorite resources.

All of the interactive modules have the effect of creating new content for the lens. The benefit to the lens maker is that the new lens content makes their lens more searchable by the many internet search engines. This is an obvious boost to the lens masters overall internet marketing strategy.

Syndicated Content Modules

Another category of modules is that of syndicated content that is drawn from other websites. For example, if the lens maker has a blog on the same subject as his lens, he can have the blog posts automatically directed to the lens each time he creates a new blog post. Other types of syndicated content include articles from magazines and newspapers. The lens master can automatically draw content related to the subject of the lens each time a new article appears in the specified periodicals. Similar to reader interactivity, this constantly changing syndicated content refreshes the lens on a regular basis, making it more attractive to the internet search engines and giving a boost to the lens masters internet marketing efforts.

Creating a Squidoo lens can be fun as well as wise. It is fun because the tools produce a lens with a wide range of variety and creativity. And it is wise because the lens will help the lens master market their home business more successfully.

3 Tips For Creating A Winning Headline For Your Website

The headline you use for your website is very important to the overall success of the site. It's the first thing visitor's see when they arrive at your site and if your headline doesn't keep them there, chances are they will click away and never return. This is a major problem if you are trying to make money from your website. The good news is there are some proven strategies you can use to make your headline successful. Below I will reveal a few tips for making a great headline.

Here are three of the most important things you should remember when creating the headline for your site...

* Always start as if you are a visitor. To do this you need to put yourself in their shoes. Go right to where they are in their day-to-day lives. What do they desire? What causes them pain? What do they need a solution to? From this vantage point you will be able to see clearly what your target market wants. Your headline should clearly and concisely tell them what they are after can be found on your site. You need to spell out how your product or service will provide a solution to a problem or a fulfillment of a desire. This will capture their attention and prompt them to continue reading. The goal of your headline is to provoke interest and curiosity.

* Spell out the end result of what your product does. This means that you clearly state how your product will benefit your customer. People are after the benefits your product will give them, not the product itself. If you sold something that produces no benefits, no one would want it. People are after what your product will do for them. This is why it is so critical to include the benefits and end results your product will give in your headline.

* Show how your product provides a solution to a problem or an answer to a desire. This is similar to the last point. People need to be assured that your product will either solve their problem or give them something they desire. If your headline fails to do this you can bet that many of your visitors will leave without reading any further.

This shows why having a great headline is so critical to your success online. The best way to get people to continue reading through your copy is to show them how you can solve their problems or provide them with what they desire. In many cases what people desire is an answer to a problem. This means you need to identify what problems your market has and provide a solution for them. This is the key to internet marketing success.

The above steps are the basic foundation from which a great headline is produced. Any time you create a new headline for your website, be sure that it at least does the three things above. If it doesn't you will surely lose out on numerous sales and lots of money. Your site’s headline is very critical. Take the time and effort to create a winner and you will be greatly rewarded in the end!
