Huge Business Empire

Search for local singles

I was thinking while lying on my bed the other day. Just before I went
to bed, I had a thought. A good thought. It is always a dream for me
to build a business empire - A huge business empire. Getting stuck in
Asia means there are limitations in the economy. It isn't as fantastic
as the European Union, Great Britain, the United States or even the
upcoming China. However, one thing that I'm pretty sure, the Internet
is borderless. That means doing business anywhere and anytime. Thus
this might be the best venture ever in this century.

I've missed the first wave that came during the mid and late 90's -
the first Internet wave. If I caught it, I'm sure I'll be wealthy. But
back then I didn't have a great vision - the vision of building a
business empire. 10 years later which is now, my vision finally took
off. And it all started with one website. Though nothing majestic or
something to be awed at, this is my launch pad to success. People
might laugh at me or perhaps maybe they are half true, that I might
never succeed. Oh well, I got the other half to prove them wrong. Or
at least get them half way wrong (if you get what I mean).

Before I went to bed yesterday, I had a thought. I notice that there
is a hierarchy in every community.

You started out as a noob or newbie
and when you graduate you become a freshman and slowly a senior and
finally the boss. I consider myself as a newbie when it comes to
building an online business. Though I might be not as young 10 years
ago, I just started building something online last month. Continuous
building will graduate me to a freshman. I notice that there are
already hundreds or in fact thousands of online gurus out there. Many
of them have already set up pretty impressive websites or online
businesses. A glance at Adwords advertisements you can see a few of
them. And not only they have advertise their sites in Adwords, you can
even see similar advertisements in Yahoo! Publisher Network,
BidVertiser, AdBrite and many more. Those are the people that have the
resources to burn and those are your online gurus.

This journey might take as little as one year before I see some
reasonable and sustainable results. Compared to problogger Darren
Rowse, he took three years. Not only he has a great blog, he revealed
that he has several other websites. Another senior and self proclaimed
Internet Marketer Gobala Krishnan is also one of them. I remembered he
claimed that he has over 20 websites running concurrently online! I am
still receiving many emails from his business everyday. This is how I
learn from him, by looking at what he is doing.

Here's an illustration of the hierarchy itself.

The Boss - Does not even need to update anything on his website, he
pays other people or a blogger $200 a month to do the work for him. At
the end of the month, he gets a five to six figure income from
Adsense, affiliate programs, advertisement revenue on his website and
enjoys a monthly holiday abroad. You can find his advertisement
everywhere on Adwords, Yahoo! Publisher Network, etc. High chances you
will see his websites appearing at the top of the list when you do a
search in Yahoo! or Google. His entire websites are page ranked
between 7 to 9 and some even 10 in Google.

Senior/Gurus - Knows the ways of the force. Just started to grow
exponentially and is appearing everywhere on various advertisement
channels. Has up to 20 websites within his grasps. A steady four to
five figure income every month. Celebrated as the problogger and
worshipped by the freshman or noob. If you ask for his advice, he'll
most likely tell you that automation is the key and money is what
makes things goes round the world. Has several page ranked 5 to 7

Freshman - Starting to make money out of his website. Everything is
money on his eyes. When a noob request to exchange links most probably
you'll get this response - What's in it for me? Charges $50 a month on
his Page Rank 5 or 6 websites to noobies that wish to get their site
indexed into Yahoo! or Google. Has tons of offer by various paid to
blog sites to post articles on his web. You can find many sponsored
links in the link section. Some even decorated their sites with
advertising banners.

Noob - The babies and maybe future online business empire owner. They
just realized that money can be made online. Unfortunately more than
50% of noobs died half way in their journey. 75% didn't even get
through half the way and 90% died during the first three months. These
are the workers of an organization and have a 9 to 5 job and aren't
really committed to what ever they are doing in their lives. For those
aspiring noobies, you can find them posting messages in forums
requesting for link exchange, always checking out other people's blog
for online opportunities but generally this group of lads are good and
friendly people. Has a page rank of 0 to 4 website.

So which are you? Start aiming high today!

How to Have Your Free Website Domain but please becareful

FREE Domain with Web Hosting Purchase Web Hosting as low as $11.95 a month

I must admit I'm a neophyte in the internet world as well as in the ABC's of the so-called "state-of-the art" website domain.  As a matter of fact, I got my Vista laptop only last December as a Christmas gift to me by my eldest daughter who was working in a hospital in England. I had my SmartBro internet connection installed only this January 2009 and I just learned few simple RSS links, searches, and browsers. Since it was my first time in the internet I took pleasure of browsing for some work-at-home jobs, bloggers, article writing opportunities, on-line marketing and other business offers. In this end, I came across with some luring proposal of free membership MLM or affiliate programs wherein I gave way to almost every offer of this kind. Reading some of their fascinating promises of easy huge earnings "without leaving your home" , I was gradually conditioned to believe that this was the best offer so far and I started working on it until I became a member Affiliate. I believe I did follow my lessons I learned from the articles of the so-called affiliate gurus - on how to send links to different websites "to expand my clout", send invites to friends, and other so-so in the affiliate system. I did work on it for almost two months now and I still notice no changes in my Google Adsense Display Report.

Then came this company ads which claims;  "greatly increases your internet presense". "....Affiliate Program offers free training as well as domain names, website hosting, and a home business income opportunity. The ... affiliate program is 100% FREE with your ... membership. Our top affiliates are producing well over $10,000 monthly!"

I'm never against their system and their systems claim but I was just lured by this particular ads/offer. ...."you can "test drive" your very own website for 7 days absolutely FREE of charge.

After your 7 day rial you could continue to build, keep and use that website to promote anything you want for the amazing price of... Only $10.00 Per Month."

"And here's the good news. You CAN safely try this out for 7 days and cancel it before the 7th day easily if you feel it is not right for you and you will not be charged or have to request for a refund. I will show you an easy way."

Then I signed up to this 7-day test drive for my so-called very own website  hoping for the promising downlines and expected help as a member of this affiliate program for free. Two days before the 7th day trial end wherein I saw no progress in my Adsense Report of Earnings I sent message to the company requesting for the cancellation of my domain account but I was told back that they only allow members to cancel it by phone... for security reasons.  I could not do so however, since I'm in different time zone and it is expensive to call for USA for this particular purpose.

Then I browsed for some related FAQs about the alternative and I came across to this answer:

Q: BUT, what if I am in a different time zone? and it is Expensive to Call USA? How can I Cancel?

A:  (The company) did mention in their website that, for security reasons, they only allow members to cancel by phone. BUT, since this is a very valid reason, you can actually email (the company) to explain this reason to them and they will cancel your membership for you; they may even call you to confirm your cancellation. To do this, you can log into your members area to find the contact form and use this contact form to contact (the company).

When I tried to log in I could not get access to my members' area. There always appears a message of denied access because of "too many log in, please contact telephone number.....".  So why should I rather contact them for a Contact Form if I could contact them for cancellation? The problem itself is "I'm in different time zone and it is expensive to call USA", and this is my reason why I chose the alternative!!

Having this difficulty, my 7-day trial drive had lapsed and after just about two weeks, there is already a charge of P4,000.00 (Philippine currency) in my credit card for their so-called domain. This Peso amount is equivalent to $95 (U.S. dollar) more or less, which is very different from the $10 a month offer for the domain.  Don't know how they compute it!

Just for this reason, and also for security reasons, I was forced to have my very own credit card bank account cancelled, to my own detriment. I will not blame anyone for what happened because it's my own fault. I just became too careless just like anybody else and I'm a little bit ashamed to people who best knew my caliber.
