Videos Rule. If your company’s website doesn’t have them, you are missing out on an awesome way of communicating with your customers. Videos are an easy and dynamic way of letting folks know about your products or services and they can mean the difference between a lookie-loo and actual sales.
Unfortunately, many companies let the high costs of professional videos turn them off to the real power of this marketing medium. Some folks even create low quality videos in-house.
As dynamic and powerful as videos can be, bad videos can be just as persuasive… in a totally negative way – giving potential customers a bad impressive of your company. Rather than adding poor quality videos to your site, you’re probably better off not adding videos at all.
Now your company can stand out from the crowd and you don’t need to spend $10K in order to have a professional video produced for your site. Are you ready for this? You can start enjoying the benefits of learning how to make your own, professional quality videos now with the help of an awesome video series that teaches you everything you need to know.

Search advertising is one of the most effective forms of advertising that exists as it has a lower lead cost than most forms of advertising.
With search advertising, you no longer have to go out and waste your precious time finding new customers. Your potential customers are already looking for your products and services through search engines. What you need to do is make sure that your company is being found when people are looking for you.
Google dominates the search landscape. There are 12 billion queries on Google sites each month in just the United States. When you examine how many search queries Google processes worldwide, the numbers become staggering.
While search advertising is very effective; you need to make sure you are doing it correctly, or you can just as easily waste money as well. This course will teach you the fundamentals you need to know to create effective search marketing campaigns with AdWords, Google’s search marketing product.

Learn the Quick-Start method – No excuses! I’ll show you a system that will enable even a shy technophobe to post a first interview within 3 days.
Land big-name guests – This alone is worth the price of the whole course. I’ll show you how to get people you never thought you’d meet to say, “yes!” to your interviews.
Start even without an audience – You don’t need a big audience to land big guests. I’ll reveal the dead-simple technique I used to get top interviewees when I didn’t have an audience.
Grow your site’s traffic – When you post an interview with celebrities — even if they’re only considered celebrities in your industry — their fans will discover your site.
Ask the right questions – I’ll show you a technique for coming up with questions that draw out your guests. You’ll learn how to create interviews your audience will absolutely love.
Learn to generate revenue – You don’t need to learn to sell to generate revenue. I’ll show you how to have your site sell for you. It’s the only way I sell and you could copy it exactly.
Learn to record & edit video interviews – You do NOT have to do video or audio interviews, but just in case you choose to do them, I’ll show you how. You’ll see my computer as I edit a 1-hour interview in a jiffy (under 10 minutes!).
Get mentored by your heroes – This is the best reason to take this course. By interviewing, you’re literally learning directly from the people you admire. Not from their books. Not by watching from the sidelines. But by directly getting to know them.

First things first.
The lessons here are very specific and tangible one by one points. You can further enhance your knowledge after this seminar by KNOWING WHAT TO SEARCH FOR in the Internet regarding SEO. This way after this seminar you will be able to get rid of confusion about SEO and grow with further free knowledge. Most people are confused from where to start on SEO or what to do/implement. As I said to my classes: Take this seminar seriously and use it and you can grow a new profession and career out of it. And I am serious. These things here are all what you need to know. They will change up to a point after 6-12 months but you will not care… as you will already know what to learn to evolve.
This seminar has all the juice. No partially described freebies to lure you buying something else for the same thing. No trying to sell web design services or some tools. This is it, fair and square.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) eCourses
by DAVID AMERLAND – Price $70
Based upon the best-selling SEO Help: 20 steps to get your website to Google’s #1 page this is a practical, step-by-step search engine optimization guide to help your business gain higher ranking, more traffic and more customers.
In this course you get to see exactly what you have to do in order to make your website rank high and increase visibility, organic traffic and profits. Ultimately, you want your website to appear on Google’s first page.
To prove that it can be done against any odds I took my own (HelpMySEO.com) to the first page of Google for the unrelated search term “Why are People Poor?” against over 800 million competing pages.
The course is designed to help you achieve the same results.

Let me show you how to make your website into a money magnet.
Yes, I’m a freelancer working from home, yet I really do get more than 1,000 visitors every day – day in, day out. That’s auditable. And it’s not the mythical ‘hits’ that some people boast about. These are real live humans. Around a third of a million a year! That’s why I now have to farm work out.
IF YOU ARE A WEB DESIGNER, APPLICATION DEVELOPER, FREELANCER, THIS COULDN’T BE MORE APPROPRIATE. YOU ARE SELLING TO EXACTLY THE SAME AUDIENCE I SELL TO.
And I did all the search engine optimization myself. I don’t pretend to be an SEO guru. In fact, I hate technology but I realized some time ago that your rankings in Google searches are too valuable to entrust to others. And there’s no need to spend a fortune with SEO companies when you can achieve astounding results yourself without any technical expertise. After all, no-one knows your business like you do, and no one can be as highly motivated.
In this course, there’s no sales hype. I just lift the kimono and show you exactly what I did to my own site – and
you can do exactly the same to your site – just ‘copy and paste’. And, yes, it does take into account the latest changes that Google has made to its ranking algorithm.

Google Places offers local businesses the opportunity to get their business ranked quickly at the top of page 1 in the Google search results. Never before in the history of search engines has their been a bigger opportunity for small local businesses to cash in on the search engines in their local market.
Until recently, when a consumer typed a keyword phrase into Google there were just 10 results on the 1st page and that was it. You were competing with the entire country for 10 spots on that coveted first page BUT… Not any more! Now you are only competing with the businesses in your local area because Google is now showing a ’7-Pack’ of Local Businesses at the top of Page 1.
Keith Carpenter is a life-long entrepreneur going back to his first ‘blow pop’ business at age 11. He has a passion for small business and start-ups and helping small business owners leverage the power of the internet to grow their businesses and make more money.
He believes the very foundation of the United States and many other countries are the small business leaders who step up, take a risk and put it all on the line in the name of ‘capitalism’ and ‘opportunity’.
His true fulfillment is helping businesses grow and become more profitable through the understanding and strategic implementation of sound and proven online marketing strategies.

Because it starts from the first principles of HTML, you need no prior knowledge of the subject, since the course begins with a thorough introduction to HTML (which skilled users can skip), before moving onto what’s new in HTML5.
HTML5 is the latest version of the Web’s bedrock markup language, HTML. But it has come to stand for much more than the average, slow-moving technical standard. HTML5 is intended to make web sites behave more like conventional desktop applications, incorporating video, complex interactions and data as well as greater compatibility with mobile devices.
by MARK LASSOFF – Price $49
There isn’t a web site out there– whether it be WhiteHouse.gov, IBM.com or the site for your local high school– that isn’t written in HTML. If you do any level of web development– from editing pages on a WordPress site to designing original pages from scratch, understanding and being able to code in HTML and CSS can give you a level of control, and power over your designs that you’ve never experienced before. This course helps you learn the html and css you need to know now (versions 4.01 and XHTML) as well as prepares you for the future with coverage of HTML5.
In this course, designed, authored and hosted by master trainer Mark Lassoff, you will learn HTML and CSS, including everything you need to create a creative, quality and sound web site. Almost four hours of video instruction in punctuated lab exercises where you apply the very skills taught in the course.

Learn to create a web design that automatically conforms itself to multiple screen sizes. This course will show you a step-by-step process for creating a design that rearranges content, resizes elements, and adapts itself based on the size of your visitor’s screen size.
Learn how to reposition the main navigation of the site based on the device browsing your website.
We’ll create a web design that makes use of HTML5 and CSS3, while maintaining backwards compatibility with older browsers. The secret ingredient of CSS3 that makes this all possible is the media querying capability. CSS media queries allow us to define CSS rules based on screen size, and ultimately give us precise control over how our designs adapt to different screen sizes. In addition to adjusting layout, we’ll explore using CSS to define all imagery in our design, allowing us to send optimized imagery along with our customized design experience.
Apply varied amounts of compression to images to optimize download speeds across devices.
Course includes HTML, CSS, and Photoshop templates for use in your own multiscreen web design projects.

This course teaches you how to develop a BIG Idea—something new, better and different—to stand out from your competition. We start by showing you how to choose the right target market. Then, working from a customer-centric perspective, we explain how to uncover the true benefits your customers want, and how to discover new ways to make more money by delivering those benefits. Then we show you how to develop a packaged brand name for your BIG Idea and how to craft an elevator speech that will get more prospects asking you questions about your business. Finally, we show you how to use your newly package BIG Idea to make the transition from selling low-profit commodities to selling high-profit BIG Ideas.
