The Best Resource for PIPS Owners

There's no doubt that Plug-In Profit Site (PIPS) is definitely one of the best options for starting an internet home business, or expanding an existing online business. There are numerous reasons for that including several top income streams in one place, having a professional site built for you, proven track record, countless success stories, great training, and MUCH more!

The 30 day training that comes with PIPS is good but I have found that often times new PIPS owners are still confused as to what they need to do in order to build their home business after going through it. Furthermore, there are several tools and resources recommended in the 30 day training that can end up costing quite a bit if you buy them all, and they aren't always the best option anyway.

So what is a new Plug-In Profit Site owner supposed to do?

In my opinion the absolute best thing any "PIPSster" can do is become a member of the PIPS Power Group (PPG). It is a highly recommended resource and really the only thing you will need to build a successful internet home business with the Plug-In Profit Site.

The PIPS Power Group is comprised of 5 highly experienced and successful PIPS members and each of them earn a full-time income from home through their online business. Let's meet the team...

1) Jeff Schuman is a full time internet marketer and the owner of a PIPS site that is one of the most visited make money online websites on the internet. It is ranked highly on the search engines for thousands of keyword phrases, many of which are very competitive. He started his online business with PIPS back in 2002 and continues with it today.

2) Suzanne Morrison earns a six figure income from home as a full time affiliate marketer. She owns more than 20 successful websites and blogs, and has written several ebooks. Her internet marketing career started with her Plug-In Profit Site and she still does very well with it.

3) Jeff Casmer has been working at home since 2000 and has built a very successful home business. He's been a PIPS member since the beginning and his website is one of the top work at home sites on the internet. He truly is an online business expert and a leader in the industry.

4) Cynthia Minnaar started her internet home business through PIPS back in 2006. She is now a top earner in many programs consistently outranking several well-known internet marketers. She earns a full time income from her online business and is always willing to help others do the same thing.

5) Ken Troyer is a highly driven entrepreneur who taught himself how to make money online. He is now a seasoned internet marketer and sought after online business coach. He is also the owner and founding member of the PIPS Power Group.

It really is time for you to stop wasting your time and money on all the other crap out there. Let these experts take you under their wings and teach you how to earn a fabulous income online from a single website.

You will learn more from the PIPS Power Group in your first couple weeks than you will in years trying to figure it all out for yourself, and you will save a ton of money! PPG delivers exceptional value for money. You won't find them falling one bit short of their promises. In fact, they massively over-deliver!

If you won't take my word for it then just go read all the testimonials they have received from satisfied customers. There are a lot of them.

What more can I say? I think that pretty much covers it. All the help you will ever need to start and build a successful online home business with your Plug-In Profit Site packaged up into one membership.

If you are already a member of PIPS then head over to the PIPS Power Group and join right now so you can get on the fast track to online business success!

If you aren't currently a member of PIPS, what are you waiting for? Get your Plug-In Profit Site immediately and then join PPG. You will be making money online before you know it!

One more thing...

If you aren't a member of PIPS and for some reason you are not interested in becoming one, you can still be coached and mentored by these 5 online business experts through the Niche Power Group!

Dedicated to your success,
Trent Brownrigg
PIPS member and home business mentor.

Blogs Suck for Internet Marketing and Making Money Online

I know there are a lot of you who think that only blogs make money online or that only blogs rank well in the search engines or that you must be a blogger if you want to be a successful internet marketer. It's not entirely your fault for thinking this since most of the so-called top make money online bloggers do a very good job of feeding you this crap. However, it is absolutely NOT true and I can prove it! The fact is that bloggers suck at internet marketing and search engine optimization... Which is how you make money online!

Want to see what I am talking about? Keep reading...

The other day I was doing some searching on Google for various keyword phrases in the niches that typically fall under the "Internet Marketing" umbrella such as; work at home, make money online, home business, home based business and so on. After a few minutes of searching I started to realize that I wasn't finding very many blogs in the top ten of these popular searches.

So, I started looking a little closer at the search results and found that there really aren't very many blogs that rank in the top 10 on Google for any of the most popular internet marketing related keywords. The only exception was "make money online" (without quotes) but even the first page of search results for that term was only half full of blogs.

The results of my little experiment are below...

* Internet Marketing = 0 blogs in the top 10
* Make Money Online = 5 blogs in the top 10
* Home Business = 1 blog in the top 10
* Work at Home = 0 blogs in the top 10
* Home Based Business = 1 blog in the top 10

Total = 7 blogs out of the 50 websites listed at the top of Google for those keyword phrases.

The only one that even had a decent showing of blogs in the top 10 was Make Money Online. Now, you might be thinking that “make money online” is the most searched for keyword phrase of all of these so it's the one that you want to rank highly for with your blog anyway. Think again!

I checked each of the phrases in the Google Adwords keyword tool and the free Wordtracker keyword tool to see how many searches each of them receive. You can see what I found below. The first number is the monthly searches the keyword phrase gets according to the Google keyword tool and the second number is the daily searches it gets according to the free wordtracker tool.

* Internet Marketing = 1,000,000/month, 3412/day
* Make Money Online = 673,000/month, 956/day
* Home Business = 1,830,000/month, 1128/day
* Work at Home = 1,000,000/month, 1184/day
* Home Based Business = 673,000/month, 763/day

Now you can clearly see that of the five top keyword phrases in the internet marketing niche, make money online comes in right around the bottom. It was tied for last with home based business for monthly searches according to the Google tool and it was second to last in daily searches according to the Wordtracker tool. Home business and internet marketing were the top two respectively.

I admit this might not have been the most in-depth scientific experiment in the world but I don't think there's any doubt that it shows you definitely do not need a blog to rank well on Google or to make money online!

What do you need to rank highly in search engines and actually make money online?


You need lots of keyword anchored backlinks. These are also called "inbound links" or "inlinks" depending on who you talk to, but they are all the same thing. Getting backlinks is the most important thing for ranking highly on the search engines and making money online.

Now hopefully you know that you don't need a blog that you update five times per day just for the sake of posting on it because you heard from some A-list blogger that's how to make money online. A very select few bloggers ever make it very far by following that school of thought for making money online, but plenty of website owners do very well with their sites by ranking highly on search engines. Which would you rather be?

Breaking the Deadly Cycle

When you work at home it's often very easy to get into a certain cycle that you repeat day after day. This can sometimes be a good thing but more often than not it's a cycle of getting nowhere with your home business. When you start doing the same tasks over and over again each day even though they aren't actually making you any money it can be a real business killer.

Sure there are some tasks you might do every day that don't directly make money for you but they are at least helping to build your online business. These are things like building up your link popularity by getting backlinks, writing fresh content for your blog, doing keyword research to create some niche sites, etc... But I'm not talking about those things.

What I am talking about are the things you spend hours per day doing that are doing nothing but wasting your time and will not help build your home business or make money for you now or in the long run. Some examples would be checking your email, checking your stats, checking your sales, hanging out in forums, reading a bunch of blogs, etc...

Think about how much time you spend each day just reading and checking everything. Visit a few of your favorite blogs and it doesn't take very long to lose an hour or two of your day. Check your email and stats a few times and there goes another hour. See what's going on in some of the popular forums and you just wasted another couple hours. That's about five hours right there and you haven't actually done any real work yet!

The problem with working at home online is that any time you are sitting at your computer doing anything it feels like you are working, when in reality you are probably not getting anything useful done. This is a cycle that so many internet marketers get themselves into and don't get out of it before their online business is dead and they end up working at their shitty jobs for the rest of their lives.

So how do you break this deadly cycle?

It's really not very hard if you think about it...

All you need to do is create a "to do list" of things to get done each day, create a schedule for getting it done, and stick with it! Designate a certain amount of time every day for each business or work task you need to get done and when your time is up move on to the next thing. Only you know how much time you have for work each day and what you should be getting done so I can't give you an exact plan, but you are smart enough to figure one out for yourself.

If you work at home full-time then you should be able to get a lot done and still have some extra time to spend doing things like reading home business blogs and internet marketing forums. If you have a full time job and only get a few hours per day to work on your home business then you really need to be careful where you are spending your time.

You can still read blogs, forums, email, etc... But have a set amount of time designated for it and don't spend too much time on it. Yes, it's important to keep up on business news and changes in the internet marketing industry as well as learn new ways to make money online, and everything else you can learn on blogs and forums. However, you need to make sure you don't waste all your time learning or you will never have any time to put the knowledge into action so you can actually build your home business and make money!

So get yourself out of the deadly cycle right now! Write down a specific amount of time to devote to each task you want to accomplish in your online business today and stick to your schedule.

What it Takes to Be a Success When Working From Home

Today I have a great article for you to read that I found on what it really takes to be a work at home success story. I really enjoyed reading it because the author, Michelle McMahon, does a great job of explaining some of the main attributes you need to possess in order to be successful working from home. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did.

What it Takes to Be a Success When Working From Home

A lot of people set out to live the dream of working from home, but a few don't make it because they just don't have what it takes to succeed in the work from home arena. And here's why:

Discipline: Are you good when it comes to self discipline? Or are you the sort of people who just has to eat the last cookie in the jar because 'it'll get lonely' if you don't? You're going to need a certain amount of self discipline because you won't have someone standing over you making sure that you get everything completed on time.

For some people it can get to be a little too easy to let things slide when something else comes up, which is not too bad if you're quite quick at catching up, however, if you're not you could start missing deadlines, and that could cost you work in the future.

You may not have the distractions that you would have had at the office i.e. stopping to chat with fellow employees, but you will be taking on a whole new set of distractions, and these will be more personal because you're in your own home.

Set a routine and stick to it as close as you possibly can. If you do get any distractions that take you away from that routine, pencil in a time within 24 hours when you can get caught up again.

Getting yourself motivated: While on the subject of routine, this can be a great way of getting yourself motivated. It isn't always going to be easy to just start working when you don't have the old routine to go through of getting yourself ready and heading out the door to work. You need to form a new routine as a build up to you starting your new working day.

For example, you might decide that the best way to get yourself ready is to go for a short walk, have a shower, make a cup of coffee and then head through to your home office. This can become your new 'going to work' routine. It will start to have a subconscious affect on the brain that tells it you're about to start your working day. After a while this will be enough to start getting you in the mood for work.

Remember, you're going to be doing this on your own and in your own home, there won't be anyone to push you to get started. You have to do it yourself, so take the time to think of a few ways that will instantly get you motivated to work.

Persevering: It's a fact of life that things won't always run smoothly. When you're first setting up, or for that matter even when you've been telecommuting or working from home for sometime, things will happen that will leave you questioning why you thought it was a good idea to do this in the first place.

If that does happen then just remember why you decided to work from home, and move on. You're going to have lots of problems to overcome, and the quicker you find a solution, the quicker you can get back to doing something you enjoy. If you take too long to dwell on things you may never find the solution and you'll just give up.

The reason's why you're doing this should greatly out weigh any doubts you have, and most things can be solved if you ask the right people the right questions, so don't give up!

PMA: A positive mental attitude will get you a long way in business, as well as in life in general. If you enjoy the work you're doing it will show, and the more it shows the more you'll enjoy the work you're doing.

It's been said that you get a better response from someone on the telephone if you're smiling while you're talking to them. There may be many reasons for it, maybe they can tell from the way you're voice sounds? But the upshot is you're more likely to be sounding more positive, and that upbeat attitude rubs off on the person you're talking to - take note all of you doing virtual assistant or telemarketing work!

It's also thought that what you concentrate on most in life is what you end up getting most in life i.e. if you always think that something bad is going to happen to you, the chances are it will. There's nothing spooky about it, you'll just be noticing all of the things that go wrong and that will tend to distract you, causing more things to go wrong. If you have a positive mental attitude you'll concentrate on the good things in life and in turn you'll keep trying to make those good things happen, while just dismissing what goes wrong as 'well, these things happen'.

So, in conclusion, if you have the right attributes you'll have a great head start in your telecommuting career. Even if you don't yet have all of those attributes there are ways that you can compensate for them until they finally kick in. This is the start of your life working from home, so don't sabotage it before it's even got off the ground - stick with it and the reasons why you decided to do it will be justified.

Stop the Money Making Hype - Get the Facts!

In keeping with the theme of my last post, I wanted to expand a little more on this topic and give you some ways to help protect yourself from money making lies...

We see them all the time; sales pages that simply blow our minds with amazing promises of insane amounts of money. I saw one just the other day that started out something like this:

“Earn $8,500+ Every Day!”

“No Website, No Selling, No Recruiting, You Can't Fail”

And then it went on and on about how this was a money making system where you don't even have to work. They will do all the work for you and all you have to do is sit at home and collect your money.

Do you actually believe this is true?

If you don’t, good for you! If you do believe this crap, I am extremely disappointed. I truly hope you never believe something like that.

The sad part is that crap like this gets sold to us each and every day. The sales pages are loaded with blatant lies and outrageous promises. And the reason that these sites get away with this crap is because there are always new people coming into the work at home marketplace and falling for it.

You don't have to fall victim to this work at home hype because there is a simple solution to this problem... Instead of believing everything you read, take it upon yourself to get the facts. If they won't give you the facts then you know that the person has something to hide.

While this might sound easier said than done, it really isn't. You just need to have the nerve to approach the site owners and ask them some questions about their money making product. What kind of questions should you ask? Here are a few to get you started:

Question #1 - What exactly do I have to do to make money?

This is probably one of the toughest questions to get answered. One reason for that is the owners only make money if you buy into their program so they don't want to give anything away before you buy. But if they have a legitimate and honest online business they will be happy to answer that for you.

Another reason is because in order for you to make money in many programs, you have to recruit people into the program itself. Also, you might actually have to pay to upgrade before you even qualify to earn. Many money making programs don’t pay their free members. So, while they say you can join for free, what they don’t tell you is that in order to earn you must become a paid member.

Question #2 - Are there any additional costs?

This is related to the above problem with having to be a paid member in order to make money. Some programs also require you to buy “product” before you qualify to earn. So it's your job to find out if there are any additional costs before you join the program.

Question #3 - Can I see proof of income?

Another thing you want to do is ask for proof of their earnings with this system, not money that they made just because they sold it. You will very often find people showing you huge amounts of money that they made. But if you dig deeper you will find it’s not because of the system itself, it’s all the money they made by selling the system. For all you know the system could be worthless.

Question #4 - Are the testimonials real?

If there are any testimonials on the site they will usually post a link to the person’s site who gave the testimonial. Visit their sites and contact them to ask if their testimonials are real and if they still recommend the product. They have nothing to lose by giving you their honest opinion so this is a great way to get a true outside perspective on the product.

The bottom line is this... Don’t blindly jump into any money making program. You have the right to ask questions and get all the answers that you need before you put your time, effort, and money into a work at home opportunity. If they don't provide you with the answers you need or you simply don’t like the answers you’ve been given, then stay away from that program and find another one.

There are plenty of legitimate online opportunities so don't settle for anything you are unsure of.

Forget the money making hype… Get the facts!

Why Are You Attracted To Money Making Lies?

why money making lies?
There was a question I answered today on a work at home forum I moderate and I wanted to share it for you as well...

Why are people so easily attracted to promises of making money fast when they know they can get scammed by a get rich quick scheme?

People are attracted to promises of making money fast because just about everyone wants to get rich quickly and they let themselves believe that it's possible. And the people who create these programs and opportunities know all they have to do is make outrageous promises of wealth and there will always be plenty of unsuspecting victims willing to send their hard earned money.

The people who fall for these get rich quick schemes have no idea they are jumping into something that is bound to leave them broke and confused. The website looks legit and they are blinded by the thoughts of making incredible amounts of money in a short amount of time.

However, they inevitably fail or get outright scammed and they soon find out that getting rich quickly isn't going to happen.

Making money online is a long road full of pot holes, speed bumps, and construction. It's not an easy journey and anybody that tells you that you will get rich quick is flat out lying to you!

Only a very small percentage of people who start on the journey to make money online are able to quickly find a high amount of success. The chances of it happening are slim to none.

I have been Making Money Online as an internet marketer for almost 5 years and even now I am far from being rich. In my time as an internet marketer I have seen countless people start with high aspirations and then quickly fade away. The reason is almost always because they came in thinking they were going to make money online quickly and easily, but it never happened.

Please don't get caught up in the hype of getting rich quick! It will almost certainly end in disappointment.

Don't get me wrong, you can make money online! There are plenty of people making a great living on the internet. I make my entire income online and I know many others who do as well. Just don't expect it to come quickly or easily. You will have to put in a lot of time and hard work before you are rewarded.

Honest Income Program Review

Honest Income Program Review A few months ago I bought an ebook called the "Honest Income Program" after seeing all the great reviews people were giving about it on a forum that I moderate. I also happen to know the author of the book, Steven Wagenheim, really well from that same forum. He is a very helpful and honest guy who really does want to help people make money online whether there's anything in it for him or not. Based on those factors I decided to give his honest income program a try.

Since I have the program now I figured I would give my own Honest Income Program Review to help out anyone doing research on this product.

Now I am already a successful internet marketer and have been doing business online for quite a few years. Because of that I figured I already knew it all and that there wouldn't be anything in the honest income program that would really help me. Heck, I even told Steven that I didn't have time for anything else in my business. I let him know that I was only buying his ebook because I had been hearing so much great stuff about it and I wanted to see for myself.

Well I was definitely wrong on both accounts! There was a ton of great information in the program that has helped me make a lot more money than I was before. And I made time for it because it would have just been stupid not to.

Even if you are a complete beginner online you will make money with the honest income program as long as you follow it step-by-step. And it's incredibly easy to follow. Steven does not leave anything out. He tells you exactly what you need to do and how to do it. This is really a very simple way to make money!

No, this is not some sit-back-and-get-rich-scheme to make money. You WILL have to work but it is not necessarily hard work and the honest income program is the closest thing to a guaranteed income that I have ever seen online.

Find it Here: Honest Income Program

There are 3 business programs in this ebook and if you put all of them into practice you can easily be earning $2,000 or more per month fairly quickly.

The three businesses of the Honest Income Program are:

1) Program one is a paying online job. Actually it's a collection of paying online jobs that you can choose from or do them all. The companies will pay you to write articles for them based on hundreds of topics you can choose from. There's no selling or recruiting involved in this program at all. It's just honest work. How much money you make with program one is up to you. The more time you put into writing articles, the more money you will make. Even if you only have a couple hours per day to devote to this program you will still make about $500 per month or more.

2) Program two is an affiliate program promoting health related niche products. The program is free to join and they even help you pay for your marketing. These are in-demand niches with little competition, so sales are easier to make and advertising costs are low. You should be able to make $200 or more per month with this program without doing any work at all. The only time you ever have to spend on this program is a few hours at first getting things set up. Now that is what I call easy money!

3) Program three is a combination of an advertising system and a business opportunity. As far as I am concerned this is the best part of the Honest Income Program. The only reason it is the third program is because Steven wants to be sure you are already making a good income from the first two programs to cover the costs of program three at first and still be in profit.

If you follow the system for program three then you should be able to make over $2000 per month with this business alone by the end of year one. And it will continue to increase each month. Add that to the money you are already making from the first two programs and you will have a full-time income from your online business.

Remember that NONE of this is actually costing you anything because of the amazing system. You will be paying for all expenses out of your existing profits.

Plus, there is now an Honest Income Program Advanced that comes with the original Honest Income Program. It gives you the information and resources to make $5000 or more per month in less than a year. However, it is recommended that you do not get into the advanced version until you have done the basic Honest Income Program (explained above) for at least a year.

And that's not all! You also get some great bonus ebooks with re-branding rights and complete instructions on how to sell them plus the software you'll need to re-brand them.

You get hundreds of pages of real content for a ridiculously low price, and free updates for life!

Find it Here: Honest Income Program

I truly can't say enough good things about the Honest Income Program and its author Steven Wagenheim. The program is amazing and Steven is the most helpful person I have ever met in online business.

At least 5 times over the past few months I have personally told Steven that he is WAY undercharging for this ebook. I have tried to get him to raise the price for his sake but he won't do it. The Honest Income Program is worth much more than its price but Steven wants everyone to be able to afford it. He is just that good of a guy!

I definitely recommend the Honest Income Program to anyone looking to start making money on the internet or anyone who is already making money online but wants more. It's great for beginners and seasoned veterans alike.

At the very least I encourage you to read the website too see how honest Steven really is. He doesn't make outrageous claims or try to hype you up. He tells you exactly what you are getting. Actually, after going through the program myself, I can see that the income claims on his website are very low... you should easily be able to make quite a bit more than what he says if you truly follow the system.
