Starting An Internet Business

Planning Program

Starting Your Internet Business


If you’re like me and want a full time internet business then like me, you’ll find that it takes a little time and shouldn’t be rushed. But if your wise enough to take advice from others you’ll have no need to commit the mistakes others have made along their journey to success.
And the most important thing I have learnt is to avoid CONFUSION. there are literally millions of voices out there shouting at you, suggesting this, to do that, use my product, sell that , don’t sell  this – so much s that your head reels from all of the noise, leaving you totally confused.

Starting An Internet Business


 But there is an Answer

And that is, first and foremost, develop an organised planning program – either on a clipboard, in a notebook or as some authors do, using ‘sticky notes’ on a pin board.

If we were starting from the very beginning the program may take this style:

  1. Develop website/blog.

  2. Investigate suitable products to promote

  3. Learn how to promote these.

This would be your first page or first ‘sticky note’ and in reality each point becomes a chapter heading for the next page/sticky note. And notice, there’s no confusion, no mind muddles – just things you need to do in an organised chronological order to become successful.

The next step in an ordered approach would be to work on point  #1 – “Develop Website/blog. This is the foundation to your whole online presence and there are a number of things to consider – let’s do it in order.

  1. Need to create a webpage name – called a URL (URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator, and is used to specify addresses on the World Wide Web.) This needs to be given some thought. Do you want to use your name? (like my URL “ or do you want it to promote some product, service or sport – such as “”. This may become a consideration if you wanted to set up multiple webpages that you may consider selling later – and one with your name may not be sellable.
  2. Need to register the URL.There are a number of companies that offer this service for a reasonable fee- as well as “hosting” your webpage. I would suggest either or Both can register your URL (if the name is available) and host your website.
  3. Need to get a webpage. There are a number of ways to do this. Most companies offer custom made built platforms ( I used one for another business of mine “” that I purchased from However I would recommend that if you are looking to write a blog that you choose a WordPress Theme – and start with a free one to commence with. There are two types of these – one from where you are totally in control (recommended) and the other is where they control much of your page. If you are a beginner, start with a simple WordPress theme such as “Tiny Forge Theme” – it’s free and easy to use. Google it and download – your website host will help you in that regard.

Once you have done all the above (it looks like a lot but in reality it can take a couple of hours) you now have to spend a little time on setting up the webpage. Youtube offers some help in doing this (How to set up a WordPress Blog or similar) – or I offer a service to get you started at a reasonable price.

Investigating Sellable Products

On our Planning Program this is the next thing to do (if you weren’t already having a stickybeak whilst setting up your website).
There are a number of “products” out there.

  1. First there are Affiliate Programs. You become an affiliate sales person to a company selling a product or service that you promote on your webpage/blog. Everytime someone purchases the product through your blog you receive a commission – and it can amount to quite an amount of money. Several companies offer this service and amongst these are Clickbank, Google Ads, and the Directory of Enzines – see here (If you click on these and purchase a product i receive a commision and at no extra cost to you. But when you get your website running you can duplicate the process) and not to forget Aweber, the Autoresponder program – see here or check out the Aweber video in the sidebar.
  2. Besides these digital products, there are several companies offering tangible products, like health and fitness products – and more. The opportunities are endless.

Next,you need to promote your site and your products

There are numerous ways you can do this and social media is a good start.

Here’s a list of some.

  1. Facebook (see my last blog),
  2. Pinterest
  3. Twitter
  4. Ezines (online magazines)
  5. Email
  6. Notice boards, both literal and online.
  7. Friends and family via “flyers”
  8. Solo Ads


And your advertising can be as extensive as any marketing company would provide. Think free giveaways (digital products), surveys, videos, prizes – to name a few.

And remember I offer a service for a fee to set up your web page to help you along the way.

Facebook Marketing

Facebook Marketing

Facebook Marketing

Over 1.28 billion people use Facebook to connect with each other either for social or business purposes.

That’s a massive audience and would be coveted by any TV company or international newspaper. In fact the top five newspapers in the world come no where near those figures as the diagram below illustrates.


The top 10 U.S. newspapers by average weekday circulation October through March. The figures include digital editions such as those on tablet computers or restricted websites as well as branded editions, which include regional editions or those tailored for commuters.

1. The Wall Street Journal — 2,378,827 (includes 898,102 digital editions)
2. The New York Times — 1,865,318 (includes 1,133,923 digital editions)
3. USA Today — 1,674,306 (includes 249,900 digital editions)
4. Los Angeles Times — 653,868 (includes 177,720 digital editions and 43,275 branded editions)
5. Daily News of New York — 516,165 (includes 155,706 digital editions)
(According to the Huffington Post)


Facebook Marketing

It stands to reason then that the enormity of the audience would be very appealing to any marketers.

But not only are the numbers appealing; Facebook has other attractions.

You can advertise for free on Facebook – and that to an enormouse international audience!

 3 Ways To Advertise For Free

1 Place advertisements (posts) on your ‘Home’ page. That’s the page you share with all of your Facebook “friends”  be they family, aquaintenances or whoever. They and their “friends” see your posts (advertisements). Imagine – if you have two hundred friends and each of these have only a hundred each – what the audience reach would be! 20,000! (Of course that’s if you have tweeked your Facebook “Privacy Settings” to allow your posts to be seen by “friends” of your “friend”). And don’t forget to use pictures or graphics to enliven your posts like the illustration below.

2  Start a second page – a business page (besides your personal page). These can be one of six varieties as per the following list:

  • Local business or place (see my page here).
  • Artist, band or public figure (see the Rolling Stone’s page –
  • Company, organisation, or institution (see Coca Cola’s page –
  • Entertainment.
  • Brand or product.
  • Cause or community.

To get your own business page navigate the directions given by Facebook on this page :

There are two ways to advertise on this page.

The first way is to put up posts like you would on your personal page. These could be advertisements for a service you’re offering, or a motivational comment or a mini blog. By this means you are calling attention to yourself as the expert in whatever you’re doing or whatever you’re selling. Use pictures, illustrations or videos to enhance your post because it is said that people will stop and look at picture whereas they might overlook pure script.

The second way to advertise on this page is to promote your post/advert. You will notice in the bottom of the post a blue window with the words, “Boost Post”. when you click on this a ‘box’ appears and you are invited to promote your post for a cost. You can choose amounts from about $5 upwards – as well as targetting your viewers. They can be just the friends who like your page or people in selected countries as well as people with selected interests. For example you wouldn’t want to advertise gym equipment to a Sewing Group but imagine the value of being able to target fitness fanatics! And you can target any niche you want and that’s one of the great things about Facebook Marketing

3 Commence a “Group” page

There is over a thousand “groups” on Facebook each with there own pages. These are essentially groups of people with the same interests who have the opportunity to advertise their businesses within the group. Some of these groups have more than 30,000 members (a few over 200,000!) so you can appreciate why it is so beneficial to become a member of one of these.

See my video explaining some of the features and benefits of joining Facebook groups.

Some of them are what is called “Open” groups – that is anyone can join as long as they obey the rules of the group. These rules  generally regulate what type of advertisement and how many a day you can post. Other groups are “Closed” and you can apply for membership or be invited – and these are generally for members to share ideas and to help each other.

Now here is the thing! You can create your own group. Imagine the authority this can give you especially if you use your own name or branding in the title. I created a group and called it, “Will McAllister’s Australian  Network Marketers Advertising” – see HERE

All you need to do this is to join one of the other groups and you will see a window on top of the page called “+Create Group”. Click on this and provide the artwork to create your personal header (like you would a webpage) that will then be a permament advert for you for ever. And the beauty of these pages is that you can place a “pinned” advert on the top of the page. This advertisement (post) then remains in this position, on the top, whereas other advertiser’s adverts continuously move down the page as more posts are posted. And you can change the content of your pinned post whenever you like.

Facebook Marketing

Finally there is one last way to market on Facebook but it’s not free but its much like the costs charged when you “boost post”.

You can create and advertisement that Facebook will promote themselves on the sides of everyone’s pages. the more you pay the greater spread of the advertisement. Once again you can target these advertisements to particular groups, interests and countries. In the Facebook blue colored bar across the top of the page and in the extreme right hand corner you will see an inverted (upside down) pyramid (a directional symbol). Click on this and you will see some actions you are able to access – one of these is “Create Ads”. Follow the directions and Facebook will help you create an advert suitable for what you are promoting. Have a look at these examples taken from my facebook “Home” page:

Facebooks Adverts






Facebook Marketing – Outside Helps

Beside all the information above to get you started there are third party helps to invigorate your campaigns. One of these is called Post Planner and helps you automatically to post in numerous Facebook groups, as well as advising you on all aspects of Facebook advertising. See it HERE.

Or if you need more hands on help this lady offers her services (for a fee)Click Here!

Finally, another way of advertising along with Facebook is the Directory of Enzines. This company is run by  Charlie Page and he has a collection of online magazines that you can advertise through. There is a fee to join but once in, not only do you have vast areas in which to advertise, Charlie is always sending helpful advice through emails. See it HERE

To your success,

How to Live A Hundred Years Or More

A recent article in the Adelaide Advertiser noted that there were over 2,700 people in Australia one hundred years or older. The article also suggested that by the year 2055 this number will swell to 78,000!


Obviously we are doing things differently today than say, fifty years ago.

However, even though these figures are heartening,  to be sensible, the figures need to be compared to the millions who die prematurely due to preventable causes.

 The most common of these would be smoking, drugs and obesity.

And perhaps the worst would be obesity because it affects young and old and all areas of society.


In fact the BBC News reported that “the World Health Organization predicts there will be 2.3 billion overweight adults in the world by 2015 and more than 700 million of them will be obese.”

That’s one third of the earth’s population!

More than likely not many of these will be amongst the 78,000.

 With obesity comes diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and circulatory conditions, and arthritis, to name a few. In fact an article in the Adelaide Advertiser for Tuesday 19th.August suggested that research is also “showing that obesity can be attributed to 39 per cent of cancers of the uterus, 37 per cent of cancers of the oesophagus, 25 per cent of kidney cancers, 11 per cent of colorectal cancers and 9 per cent of post-menopausal cancer.”

Check out the product here

The Wellness International Network gives a startling glimpse of the problem with the following list of the figures for the USA. Pro-rata, they would be equivalent for Australia.

  • 58 Million Overweight; 40 Million Obese; 3 Million morbidly Obese
  • Eight out of 10 over 25’s Overweight
  • 78% of American’s not meeting basic activity level recommendations
  • 25% completely Sedentary
  • 76% increase in Type II diabetes in adults 30-40 yrs old since 1990
  • 80% of type II diabetes related to obesity
  • 70% of Cardiovascular disease related to obesity
  • 42% breast and colon cancer diagnosed among obese individuals
  • 30% of gall bladder surgery related to obesity
  • 26% of obese people having high blood pressure

Childhood Obesity Running Out of Control

  • 4% overweight 1982 | 16% overweight 1994
  • 25% of all white children overweight 2001
  • 33% African American and Hispanic children overweight 2001
  • Hospital costs associated with childhood obesity rising from $35 Million (1979) to $127 Million (1999)
  • New study suggests one in four overweight children is already showing early signs of type II diabetes (impaired glucose intolerance)
  • 60% already have one risk factor for heart disease

Surge in Childhood Diabetes

  • Between 8% – 45% of newly diagnosed cases of childhood diabetes are type II, associated with obesity.
  • Whereas 4% of Childhood diabetes was type II in 1990, that number has risen to approximately 20%
  • Depending on the age group (Type II most frequent 10-19 group) and the racial/ethnic mix of group stated
  • Of Children diagnosed with Type II diabetes, 85% are obese


Again, what does childhood obesity say for the chance of being amongst 78,000 centenarians in 2055? Unfortunately they will be the few survivors of the millions who died prematurely.

Sadly, obesity is having an impact on all facets of society. Seating manufacturers, theatres and airline companies (not to mention clothing manufacturers) are discovering that the average person is becoming wider. Who hasn’t had to accommodate the overflow of an obese fellow passenger sitting alongside on an aeroplane, forcing you to eat like a praying mantis?

But probably not so well known or appreciated is the effect that obesity has on the human spine and other skeletal joints. The increased weight causes the spine to assume abnormal and extreme curves, compromising spinal discs and facet joints. As the accompanying diagram illustrates, obesity causes a forward motion of the centre of gravity. This affects the neck causing the head to tilt forward and upward, often straining neck muscles. The same goes for the lower back due to the corresponding backward movement of the body.

Now that we have been warned, what do we do about it?  Well, it is never too late to tackle the problem. One of the first things to do is to see if or how much we are overweight and the best ways to do this is to calculate your Body Mass (weight)  which takes in to consideration your height. The Herbalife Company supplies an easy to use and understandable calculator on their website: or you can purchase calipers from chemists, some sports stores, to measure body fat. It’s not hard.

Implement a personal health program.

Once you have determined your situation you need to implement a health program including exercise and nutrition.

Here is a list of things to do:

Educate  yourself.

Ignorance is bliss but it can be deadly. Read books and articles, check the internet, but only implement what appears sound and don’t get carried away with anything too esoteric.

uHave a medical check up with your GP and ascertain your condition (especially before commencing an exercise regime).

Exercise Daily.

Start with a little and build up. Walk around the back yard or down the street until you can venture further afield.

Implement a Nutrition Program.

Get help from a professional by consulting a Naturopath or a holistic Chiropractor to help your program. But commonsense alerts most of us to the right and wrong things we eat.

Stop Smoking  (or taking non prescription drugs and excessive drinking). As if we didn’t know these would be on the list.

Now, before I close let me say that we all recognize that life is not fair. All of us know of instances of the few that defy the statistics and despite their lifestyles, reach old age. On the other hand, a friend of mine who was as fit as the proverbial bull died of a heart attack whilst playing squash at 56 years of age. Maybe he should have taken cognizance of the fact that both his parents also died in their fifties due to heart problems.

So what’s the point?

Just this. We need to do our best at keeping fit but have to be comfortable with the variables of life. Accidents, natural disasters, and our genetical background all have an impact on how long we will eventually live.

Maybe you and I will be amongst the 78,000 – if so I will be 109!

But the good news is that there are still heaps of opportunities out there in Face Book for new entrepeneurs to become millionaires.

Facebook Marketing System




 The answer lies in marketing

  •  Blogging, like I’m doing here is a good form of marketing (more of that in another blog).

  • Paid FB advertisements are also a profitable way – if you know what you are doing (contact me and I will help you – you help me and I will help you).

Alternate cover for book, Sam rivers and the Night Rustlers


Authors Blogging

As an author I was drawn to blogging because it was a way that I could write and express my opinions on almost any subject that I wished.

Author's Blogging

Tom Clancy Author’s Blogging

It isn’t as if I was Tom Clancy at all – read all of his books – but I just like to write. And if can write as well as Tom that would be great. But I am a realist in this regard and my writing is not going to be of his calibre – but that’s okay as I enjoy what I do.


Author’s Blogging.

I am in fact the author of three books, two of which are out of print, but the third, “Sam Rivers and the Night Rustlers” is available from

Alternate cover for book, Sam rivers and the Night RustlersThis book was self published, but only after I had it professionally edited two times – and even then, after it was published I noticed there were areas where I could have improved the copy.

A columnist in the “Writer’s Digest” said that authors need not to worry about these things. When readers of his works wrote and told him about a fault they had found in his articles he would thank them graciously. In his subsequent publicity he would challenge anyone to find “the fault” and offer a prize to anyone who could reveal it to him. Amazingly this caused his sales to skyrocket. Apparently everyone likes to find fault.


Here is the publicity blurb for the book:

“Fourteen-year-old Sam Rivers lives on a farm in rural South Australia and when he, his dog Blackie, and three friends from a neighbouring farm set out to explore the eerie sandhills at the back of the farm, they discover the perfect place to build a fort.The night before the four friends embark to begin creating their fort with a secret lookout, twenty more sheep disappear from a property down the road.

Sheep rustling is rampant and when Sam and his friends discover strange tyre tracks by their fort, they realize the rustlers are preparing to raid Sam’s farm. The four scheme to catch the gang responsible by lying in wait in the fort during the night and then reporting the rustlers to the police.

But even the best-laid plans have faults. Sam and his friends put their lives in danger while trying to catch the rustlers, but are even more dismayed to discover they have been betrayed by a trusted friend. Locked in shearer’s quarters with an old couple, Sam must find a way out, but in the end, it is up to man’s best friend to try and save them all”.

Now for those who are interested I have included the first few paragraphs of my book here for you and I confess that I have been told of a fault – not found in these paragraphs.

The fault is not of the grammatical variety (there a couple of those) but relating to the tools our hero uses in his adventure (I really have told you too much already).

“Let go of me, let go,” Sam yelled. Suddenly Sam’s horse reared up, hooves flying, which made the sheep rustler holding Sam momentarily loosen his grip. Sam instantly pulled away and mounted Snowstorm. “The kid’s getting away. Stop him! Stop him or else our game’s blown!”

Sam urged Snowstorm toward the grasping men. “Go boy,” Sam shouted, “through them.”

A sudden barking outside his bedroom woke Sam. He jerked upward, eyes wide and sweat pouring from his brow.

“Crickey, Blackie!” he called through the window, “you spoiled a great dream I was having.” Blackie had proved wayward as a sheep dog, which is how he became Sam’s pet. In fact he wasn’t even black—he was a red-brown—but Sam’s father reckoned he must have been the “black-sheep” of his family. So Blackie became his name.

Sam jumped out of bed and peered out of the window. Blackie looked up eagerly, his tail wagging excitedly. He gave a couple of extra woofs, as if to say, “Good, I’ve woken Sam. Now he’ll come out and play.”

Magpies warbled in the eucalypt trees surrounding the farm, competing with the raucous galahs. Chickens scratched and scurried around in the warmth of the early morning summer sun.

“Crikey, what a beaut day to start the school holidays,” Sam thought. He leaned out of the window and patted Blackie. “I can’t ride you, like the horse in my dream, but at least today we’re going to explore the sandhills. You might be able to chase a few rabbits or maybe a kangaroo.” When Blackie heard the word “rabbits” his tail wagged excitedly, but he wasn’t too sure about kangaroos—past experiences had made him wary.

“Go around and wait at the back door, Blackie, and after breakfast we’ll go to the sandhills.” Sam closed the window and as if he understood every word, Blackie scampered away to wait for Sam at the door.”

I know all the fault finders will be out in their droves to pick and pull at the quoted narrative. I have had people tell me that a novel should never start with someone dreaming- but read many best sellers that commenced that way. So really it up to you to do what you want in life and hopefully you get a kind publisher.

Authors Blogging

Now to be able to blog authors need a good blogging platform – and we all know that there are many on the market. I use a WordPress platform and utilise a couple of plugins. Now WordPress has introduced a new editing system called Gutenberg (obviously a memorium of the first printing press ever, The Gutenberg).

Authors blogging.

The uses for a blogging plaftorm are as many as you could imagine.

A realestate agent could upload a video with as much text as he likes and immediately place it in his blog. A mechanic may be working on an engine and decides he wants to write an article about what he is doing – then photograh or video his work and immediately upload to his blog – without using YouTube Vimeo – or what ever.

And if he wanted to include audio it’s just as easy.
