Marketing Your Business with Web 2.0

The Web 2.0 social media revolution is in full swing. Are prospects finding your website?

As an entrepreneur, how do you make your business website stand out amongst 435 million other websites and more than 1 million blogs competing for your audience's attention?

It's not as hard as you might think.

To begin, let's look at the demographics of the basic Web 2.0 social networking sites, this will give you an idea on how to position your message to the Web 2.0 World:

  • Myspace;
  • Facebook;
  • YouTube.

The Web 2.0 Social Networking Revolution

Web 2.0 is a real revolution on the Internet. And this revolution doesn't just consist of college kids...

  • 62% of MySpace visitors are older than 25 (40% are 35+), and 83% are making over $30,000 a year. 19% are making $100,000 and up;
  • On 46% are over 25 and 34% are 35+, and they've got deep pockets. 88% make more than $30,000 and 23% make $100,000 or more.

In the years ahead these numbers will get even more exciting...

  • Social media giant Facebook is currently ADDING a million 25+ (non-student) adults per week to their rosters. That's 52 million new users a year;
  • YouTube gets over 50 million unique visitors per month. That equals over half a billion a year;
  • Facebook and MySpace have the equal daily traffic of Google. Experts predict within the next year they will DOUBLE the daily traffic of Google search.

So your prospects are there, the traffic is there and the spending power is there. So NOW is the time you want to establish your presence on the social networking websites.

Web 2.0 Strategy: Why You Should Be a Connoisseur and NOT a Marketer

As a website owner, how should you position your message in the Web 2.0 world?

The increasingly savvy buying public will quickly shun marketers. Internet readers want information from the Internet. They don't want advertising, marketing, or a "pitch".

According to Schefren in his Attention Age Doctrine, the solution is to become a social media "Connoisseur".

A Connoisseur is a trusted authority, like a friend, on the social media websites. As you gain their trust, your audience will return to you over and over again wanting to invest in your advice.

Five Steps to Becoming a Social Media Connoisseur

Social Media Maven Step 1: Get in the Game

Begin blogging immediately. Create a video explaining how to solve a problem and put it on YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook with links back to your main website. Just those two things alone will establish more Web 2.0 presence than 90% of your competition.

Social Media Maven Step 2: Share your passion

Build your Web 2.0 website around your passions and expertise. Thirty-two year old Gary Vaynerchuk transformed his wine knowledge to his video blog, . It now has thousands of subscribers and does $50 million dollars a year in wine sales.

Social Media Maven Step 3: Be Controversial

Your audience will remember you more when you challenge the status quo. Controversy sells. Think like the tabloids and the local news channels here. For example, Web 2.0 Business Coach Rich Schefren challenges traditional marketing wisdom in each release of his Attention Age Doctrine special reports at .

Social Media Maven Step 4: Create World Class Content

You will drive repeat traffic to your website by offering top notch "how to" information. Gary's wine tastings are highly educational on the benefits of wine, how to cook with wine, and how to choose a wine for your special occasion. Rich's reports teach Web 2.0 marketing principles.

Remember, as soon as your audience feels that you are "pitching" them, you've lost them. So provide content not advertising.

Social Media Maven Step 5: Engage in the Conversation

Web 2.0 is a dialogue, not a monologue. Internet businesses profit more when they observe and listen to their communities first before they broadcast their messages. Savvy connoisseurs such as Gary and Rich encourage their audience to ask questions. The answers to these questions then become part of their user-generated content.

How Marketing in a Web 2.0 Social Media Environment Is Exhilarating.

Visualize it like a big radio or television station or movie screen where you're the star. You're building a fan base so you need to entertain, inform, and deliver consistently for your audience.

You have more publishing power at your fingertips right now than at any time in history.

Use it.

Share your passions.

Reveal your trials and tribulations.

Tell your story.

Watch how quickly your audience builds.

20 Primary Universal Laws - Part 2 of 2

11. The Law of Conscious Detachment. Buddha's earthly teachings are best summarized with one of his statements, "It is your resistance to what is that causes your suffering," and by suffering, he meant everything that doesn't work in your life; relationship problems, loss of loved ones, loneliness, sickness, accidents, guilt, monetary hardship, unfulfilled desires, and so on. When you accept what is, you accept the unalterable realities in your life without resisting them. Some things are facts. They exist, and no matter how much you resist them, there is nothing you are going to be able to do about them. Change what you can change, but have the wisdom to accept unalterable situations as they are, without wasting mental or physical energy attempting to change what you cannot change. Out of acceptance comes involved detachment. The ability to enjoy all the positive aspects of life, but to allow the negative to flow through you with out resistance and without affecting you.

12. The Law of Gratitude. From the perspective of Karma and the Law of One, the more you give, the more you will receive. The more you assist others, the more you will assist yourself. The power of this Law also works in your day-to-day life.

13. The Law of Fellowship. When two or more people of similar vibration are gathered for a shared purpose, their combined energy directed to the attainment of that purpose is doubled, tripled, quadrupled or more. This esoteric awareness has been used by covens, esoteric religions, healing groups, and recently, worldwide meditations for world peace.

14. The Law of Resistance. That which you resist you draw to you, and you will perpetuate its influence upon your life. Resistance is fear, so it is something you need to Karmically resolve. The Law of Resistance assures that you let go of the fear by encountering it until you are forced to deal with it by learning conscious detachment.

· Example: You may have a strong resistance toward people of the Asian race; Black race, Jewish race, your mother-in-law, etc. Your resistance is fear. The quickest way to overcome that which you fear is through direct experience, thus you will reincarnate as an Asian, Black, Jew, or your mother in-law in a future lifetime. When you attain Master of Life awareness and stop resisting [your fear] by consciously detaching from the negativity, the problem will be resolved. Most disharmonious situations are solved through a change in your viewpoint. By changing your perspective, you can usually eliminate the effects of a problem, and if you are no longer affected by a problem, you no longer have a problem, although nothing about the problem situation may have changed. Another aspect of the Law of Resistance states, that which you resists, you become, if not in this lifetime, in a future incarnation.

15. The Law of Attraction. "Where your attention goes, your energy flows." You attract what you are and that which you concentrate upon. If you are negative, you draw in and experience negativity. If you are loving, you draw in and experience love. You can attract to you only those qualities you possess. So, if you want peace and harmony in your life, you must become peaceful and harmonious.

16. The Law of Reflection. This Law says that the traits you respond to in others, you recognize in yourself, both positive and negative. It has four primary manifestations:

· That which you admire in others, you recognize as existing within yourself;

· That which you resist and react to strongly in others is sure to be found within yourself;

· That which you resist and react to in others is something which you are afraid exists within you; and;

· That which you resist in yourself, you will dislike in others.

In other words, you have chosen to incarnate upon the manifest plane to learn to rise above the effect of fear. Those fears will always be reflected in your reactions to others, Thus your goals are very obvious once you recognize how to perceive them. As you let go of the fear, you automatically open to expressing more unconditional love.

17. The Law of Unconditional Love. The expression of unconditional love will eventually result in harmony. Unconditional love is not romantic love. It is the acceptance of others as they are without judgment or expectations. It is total acceptance of others without attempting to change them, except by our own positive example. The law of unconditional love says, "If you go out of your way to express unconditional love, you automatically rise above fear, and, as you transcend your fears, you automatically open to the expression of unconditional love.

18. The Law of Magnetic Affinities. By Astrologically choosing the time and place of your birth, you determine the nature or the effects you will experience in your life. On the other side, before we are born, we make decisions about the lifetime we will be entering into. You chose your parents, other souls to interact with you, and the Astrological configurations of your birth which determine your character, personality, abilities, restrictions, and timing for strengths and weaknesses. If all of this seems too complicated to be real, be aware that you are only using five to ten percent of the capacity of your brain. And the brain-mind researchers say the human brain has 200,000 times the capacity of the greatest computer ever built. Such calculations as I've just described would be no problem for such a computer.

19. The Law of Abundance. You have within yourself everything required to make your earthly incarnation a paradise if you choose to accept that which is your divine birth-right. We live in a Universe of abundance, although the majority of those populating our planet appear to view it as a Universe of scarcity.

20. The Law of Divine Order. If you seek to understand the Law of Divine Order, study the natural balance of nature, for it works very much the same way. Everything is as it should be, although mankind (our energy gestalt) is far from experiencing its potential of total harmony. There are no accidents. Your energy, translated into thoughts, words, emotions, and deeds, causes all your experiences. This assures that you always have the learning opportunities you require to resolve your Karma, and, as with you, the collective thoughts, words, emotions, and deeds of mankind create the environment for us all. If enough souls focus their energy upon peace, we will have peace. If the majority of souls are filled with anger, we may all have to experience war. We are all one, and like the many sub-personalities within you, the dominant traits of mankind (the entire gestalt) will emerge to resolve our group Karma.

20 Primary Universal Laws - Part 1 of 2

The Universe is perfectly balanced by natural and moral laws with regulatory vibrations to maintain order. When you work within these laws you can be assured of an eventual positive outcome. When the laws are transgressed, you can be assured of suffering; the only purpose of this is to teach you a better way.

1. The Law of Harmony. This law supersedes even the fundamental law of Karma, for harmony is the supreme potential of balance. The purpose of Karma is to attain harmony. If you throw a rock into a pond you disturb the harmony of the pond. You are the cause, the effect is the splash and the ripples flow out and back until harmony is restored. Similarly, your disharmonious actions flow out into the Universe and back upon you, lifetime after lifetime, until eventually your own harmony is restored.

2. The Law of Reincarnation and Karma. Until you have resolved your Karma and fulfilled your Dharma, which are the deeds you must do, you will continue to reincarnate into sequential lifetimes here on earth. Neither Divine nor the Lords of Karma bestow suffering upon you during these lives, you and you alone decide what you most need to learn in your earthly sojourns; and for each life experience you seek out other souls, often with shared histories, and always with Karmic configurations matching your needs. Whenever you act with intention you create Karma. Actions are considered to be thoughts, emotions, words, deeds, motives, desires and the intent behind each. Disharmonious acts must be balanced in this life or in a future lifetime, to have Soul growth.

3. The Law of Wisdom; wisdom erases Karma. If you have the wisdom to learn your lessons through love, then wisdom you can mitigate your suffering. Sadly, we seem to learn the fastest through pain, through directly experiencing the consequences of our actions. As an example, you greedily take from others, and instead of learning through wisdom and love that this is wrong, you have to experience from others who greedily take from you, whether in this life or in a future lifetime.

a. Example 1: In your last life you were married to a Soul who is your mate today, and whom you cruelly left for another in a your last lifetime. Before you were born into this current life, you agreed to be left by your mate, under similar circumstances — this will allow you to balance your Karma — and directly experience the pain of abandonment.

b. Example 2: Assume that you are Astrologically destined for a severe relationship test for May of your 35th year. If you have learned, through past life awareness, as well as present life learning, to be positive, non-judgmental and without expectations in your relationship you may only experience an argument with your mate on that fateful day in May, but if you haven't learned your past lessons, and have intensified your disharmony during your relationship you might experience a divorce in May of your 35th year.

4. The Law of Grace. Karma can be experienced to the letter of the law or in mercy and grace. In other words if you give love, mercy and grace to others, you will receive the same in return.

5. The Law of Soul Evolution. Everyone on Earth shares the goal of Soul evolution whether they realize it or not. We have reincarnated because we desire to evolve spiritually. By rising above all of our fear based emotions and in so doing learning how to express unconditional love, we raise our vibrational rate and move closer to a state of harmony. Even when it appears that we are not evolving, we are in reality making progress. We learn through the pain of our disharmonious acts, which can be viewed as our mistakes or failures. This is the Law of Soul Evolution.

6. The Law of Bodhisattva. Bodhisattva is a Sanskrit term commonly accepted by most Metaphysical adepts today. It means one who has transcended the need of Earthly incarnations but who has chosen to return to the earth to support others in achieving enlightenment. A Bodhisattva knows he will never really be free until all souls are free. Most serious students of metaphysics have entered the Bodhisattva Development Stage of their evolution.

7. The Law of Vibrational Attainment. The entire Universe operates on the principle of vibrational energy. When Einstein discovered that "matter is energy" he opened the door to merging science and metaphysics. Scientists have proved that energy cannot die, it can only transform (reincarnate), and, by its very nature, energy must go forward or backwards, it cannot stand still, for to do so is stagnation, resulting in transformation. You are energy. Your skin, which appears solid, is actually trillions of swiftly moving molecules orbiting each other at a specific vibrational rate. Today is a physical life you have created as a result of how harmoniously—or disharmoniously you have lived your past lives and in your current life, up until this moment in time. When you are harmonious for an entire lifetime, you will have attained the highest vibrational rate—the Divine level.

8. The Law of Free Will. The Law of Free Will operates in three ways.

a. Although many of the major events in your life are Astrologically predestined, you always have free will to mitigate the impact of the event, or to transcend it entirely. This will result from how you live your life up to the situation you have destined yourself to experience. If you give grace and mercy to others, are positive, loving, compassionate, and demonstrate by your action that you have learned past lessons, you can minimize disharmonious experiences!

b. As you obtain 'Master of Life' awareness and develop conscious detachment, you will be far less affected by worldly events than in the past. A Master of Life enjoys all the warmth and joy that life has to offer, but detaches from the negativity by allowing it to flow through him without affecting him.

c. You always have free will in how you respond to any situation. If you respond with positive emotions, compassion and integrity, you have probably learned your karmic lessons and will not have to experience a similar situation in the future.

9. The Law of One. Every Soul, living and discarnate, is connected at the level of the collective unconscious, deep within the Higher-Self. We are all part of a great energy phenomena called Divine, and because we are part of Divine, we are Divine. It is the goal of this phenomena to move the energy forward, creating more energy. So, in living harmoniously, we each increase our vibrational rate and intensify the vibration of the entire Universe. When we are disharmonious, we decrease the vibration of the entire Universe, because we are one, everything you think, say and do, affects every other Soul.

10. The Law of Manifestation. Everything manifest begins as a thought, an idea. Ideas and experiences create beliefs which in turn, create your reality. If you are unhappy with your current reality, you must change your beliefs and your thoughts. Beliefs can be changed when you recognize those beliefs that are not working for you, and begin programming what will create success and harmony in your life. The unlimited creative power of your mind, through dedication, awareness and training, can be the wisdom to rise above your Karma. Within physical and spiritual laws, you can manifest any reality you desire to experience.

Stay tuned for Part 2...

Clearing Your Money Issues

Whether you realize it or not, you have a relationship with money that YOU are constantly molding. Money is a neutral resource to which you give power. Your patterns with money are dictated by your beliefs, feelings and language about money.

Money will either reward you or cause great struggles in your life. It is up to you to tell money what you want it to do. It seems that most people do the following two things that create financial lack:

1. They keep talking about how much money they don't have and how they will probably never have enough. Some of the most popular phrases are:

"I can't afford it."
"I don't have enough money."
"I will never have enough."
"I have too many bills."
"I are always falling short."
"The economy is weak."

2. They keep focusing on how much money is flowing out and create the emotions of distress and fear. Whatever we focus on, we create more of. However we feel about any aspect of our lives, we draw more of that experience into our lives. If we keep focusing with powerful negative emotions on all the money flowing out, we give more & more power to money leaving and very little power to money flowing in.

What this looks like in reality is more events occurring in your life that cost you addt’l money such as repairs, health bills, accidents, and compulsive spending. One way to reverse all of this is:

  • Change your language. Start talking about how there is enough money and that you are grateful for receiving your share. Say things such as:

"I am grateful for all the money that is coming my way."
"I am grateful for what I have now."
"I am grateful that I am a wise steward of money."
"I am grateful all my bills are paid in full."
"There is enough and I am ok.

  • Start putting your focus on money flowing to you with the emotion of gratitude. What would it "feel" like to have enough and more? What would it "look" like? What would it "sound" like in your family and marriage? What would you say to each other different from what you are saying now? What would it "taste" like?

Activate your senses by imagining and feeling in detail what you want to experience. In this state of mind and emotion, you throw out a powerful message with a strong vibration to the Universe and the Universe responds in a like manner.

  • Imagine more and observe less. People stay stuck in lack because they keep observing, talking, and focusing on their current reality and what they don't want. When you vibrate at that level the Universe can only give you more lack, it’s law.

Start imagining and feeling, every morning, what you DO WANT and it will manifest in your life. Stop using your powerful mind just to survive and get by. Divine gave us all the ability to create and most of us have forgotten the true power we possess.

Mind-Blowing Video Illustrating How Easily You Are Deceived...

You are only allowed to watch this video once. Seriously, do not cheat!

Read the following paragraph twice so you understand the instructions:

In the video you will see a group of basketball players, some in white shirts and some in black shirts passing two basketballs around. Your goal is to count how many times the ball is passed by those wearing white shirts. It's that simple.

Remember, when the video starts focus right away on those wearing white shirts and count the number of times the basketball passes from one person to another. Once the movie is over, write down the number of passes you have counted.

Watch video once, DO NOT watch the video again!

Focus on the basketball players wearing white shirts and how many times they pass the ball:


After you have watched the video please read comments below.

You probably do not want to read the comments below until after you have looked at the video. The comments below contain information about the video that could alter your results. To prevent you from spoiling the video ONLY scroll down this page AFTER you have seen the video.


It doesn't matter how many times the ball was passed, the question is, did you see the Gorilla in the video?

The reason that nearly every one doesn't see the Gorilla is because their attention, their focus, is on the balls as the instructions have told them. They are completely distracted and as such they can't see something as obvious as a Gorilla walking across the screen.

This really is a mind-boggling and powerful experiment.

It is the same with your daily life. The media and major corporations are constantly having you place your focus on this or that -- all five sense activities -- and so you miss the 'Gorilla' and you are able to be controlled, deceived and manipulated because you are being distracted.

This is one reason that you belong to one of the most conditioned, programmed cultures the world has ever known. Your perceptions are carefully and precisely regulated -- and not for your best interests.

In America, conventional wisdom that has mass acceptance is usually contrived: somebody paid for it.


  • Pharmaceuticals restore health
  • Vaccination brings immunity and prevents disease
  • When a child has a fever they need Tylenol
  • Hospitals are safe and clean
  • America has the best health care in the world
  • The mainstream media tells you the truth
  • And many, many more

This is a list of illusions that have cost billions and billions along with untold amounts of human pain and suffering. We need to gather together to expose the fraud and deception so you can see the Gorilla the next time he pops his ugly mug.

Then you will be able to point him out to your friends and neighbors and we will be well on our way toward providing a path for most to choose to be independently healthy, wealthy and free of the tyranny of massive corporate interests that pull the wool over our eyes on a daily basis.

Quantum Physics: Knowing What You And The World Are Made Of - Pt. 2 of 2

“If thoughts can do that to water,
imagine what our thoughts can do to us.”
­ from the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know!?

The Law of Attraction teaches that we attract into our lives whatever we focus on. Quantum Physics teaches that nothing is fixed, that there are no limitations, that everything is vibrating Energy. By understanding that everything is Energy in a state of potential and by applying the Law of Attraction to bring into our lives whatever we focus on, it is never necessary to feel stuck with an undesirable life.

We are Creators of the Universe. The classical physics of Newton takes a material perspective in which the Universe is composed of discrete building blocks, solid and unchangeable. Quantum Physics takes a spiritual perspective in which there are no separate parts, in which everything is fluid and always changing.

The physical world is a sea of Energy constantly flashing into and out of existence. It is through our thoughts that we transform this ever-changing Energy into observable reality. We can, therefore, create our reality with our thoughts. With Quantum Physics, science is leaving behind the notion that human beings are powerless victims and moving toward an understanding that we are fully empowered creators of our lives and of our world.

With Newton, we were insignificant cogs in the
Universal Machinery. With Quantum Physics,
we are Creators of the Universe.

Everything is Energy. Again, Einstein’s 1905 formula E = mc2 explains the relationship between Energy and matter, i.e., that Energy and matter are interchangeable ­that, in reality, everything is Energy ­dancing, fluid, ever-changing Energy.

This Energy is influenced by our thoughts. It is shapeable, formable, and moldable. As Creators, we shape, form and mold the Energy of the Universe through our thoughts. We transform the Energy of our thoughts into the Energy of our reality.

The Physics of Possibility. The popular movie, What the Bleep Do We Know (as seen above), clarifies that Quantum Physics is the physics of possibility. We have been conditioned to believe that the external world is more real than the internal world. Quantum Physics says just the opposite. It says that what’s happening on the inside determines what’s happening on the outside. It says that our world is shaped by our thoughts.

Since nothing is fixed and everything is in a state of potential, everything is possible. As we understand that there are no limitations, and as we focus our thoughts on what we want to attract, we can literally call into existence whatever we desire.

Children often say­ “It could happen!” They probably don’t know much about the physics of possibility, but they practice it with this great attitude. Some children remind us to entertain possibility and remind us that nothing is impossible.

Dreams into Reality. The Universe exists as infinite potential in infinite abundance. As we focus our thoughts, we have the power to bring our desires into existence, our dreams into reality.

As you focus your thoughts, you have the power to be and do and have whatever you desire...
