Neat Tool for Creating Videos Without a Camera

So you need to make a video, but you don’t have a camera, huh?  Good news – I have a solution for you.

I recently discovered a way that you can put together a video with  less than an hours worth of effort.  It’s called Animoto, and you can sign up for a free account with them.  The free account allows you to make up to a 30 sec video.  If you need to make it longer, you’ll have to upgrade to a $30 annual fee.  But hey, experiment with the free version first.

Basically it works like this. There are just 3 steps.

1. You pick a format & start pulling in the images or video clips you want to appear, adding text blocks to explain or connect the images.  When you have it arranged in the order you want, you’re ready for step 2.

2.  This is where you choose the music track that will accompany your video.  You can  select from over 100 tracks in their library with categories like hip hop, classical, jazz, popular, and new releases.  Alternately you can download music from your computer IF you are the creator or have permission from the creator to use it.  I don’t want you to get in trouble with the copyright police.  There is a preview button that lets you listen to about 15-20 seconds of each track.  When you got the right music, press the save.

3. Finalization – this is where you add the title and  description for those that will view it.  After you enter the information, you’re done.  Click the finalize button, and Animoto takes it from there.  After the rendering process is complete, Animoto sends you an email to let you know that your video is ready to view, and put out there for others to see.

Here’s one I made using Animoto.  Car Buyer Club – Simple Steps to Making Money

The title screen and credits were added by using Microsoft Movie Maker, but I’ll leave that for another day.

The 3 Ways That You Can Make Money Online

making money online

So, you want to make your fortune on the internet.  Well, there are basically 3 main ways to accomplish that.

1. Be an authority who recommends things to others. To become an authority, be a student of your industry or niche.  Learn from others, build a list, and build relationships with those on that list.  These then become people that know, like and trust you, and will take your recommendations seriously.

2. Create something that someone else wants.  This is the one area where you really have to have some technical knowledge (software program) or writing skills (E-books).

3. Create content that provides benefit for those seeking that information. This can include

*text – blogging or article writing for ezines

*audio – presentations or internet radio

* video –  video presentations for products or services.

Reachin’ Out to Fellow Bloggers

Let me help you

I just discovered something pretty awesome. If you’re new to the world of blogging as I am, there is great help out there, especially from people in your niche.

I recently purchased a blogging course by Ty Tribble, the #1 blogger in my niche of network marketing, called MLM Blog Secrets. This is a great introduction to the world of blogging, and if you’re a marketer, how to make money from it.

But it was through one of his suggestions in the course that I made my discovery.  One way you get better is to visit and read other people’s blogs on similar subjects, and make meaningful comments on their posts.  I was doing this the other day and came across Heather Stephens for the first time.  This particular post was on the importance of copywriting, and she was offering her cheat sheet of favorite words and phrases.

The download was very helpful to me, (you can get it here for free) and after reading and commenting on another of her posts, this time about setting up a do-follow blog, she emailed me and helped me through establishing my own blog as a do follow.  She and others I have met through this routine, have demonstrated a sense of community and providing value to fellow bloggers.

It’s neat to be a part of that.   If you agree, feel free to comment, and tweet or share on facebook.

Would you like to know the secret to success in network marketing?

No, really??

I was checking out some blogs concerning network marketing recently, and came across a headline that read, The Biggest Discovery in MLM by Todd Falcone.

Having been in the industry for over ten years now has lead to a certain amount of skepticism about so -called “secrets”, but realizing that the industry is constantly evolving, I couldn’t help myself from clicking on the link.

“Hi, my name is Jack Koetting, and I’m a curious network marketer”

“Welcome Jack, we’re glad you’re here.  Our support group meets every Tues nite at 7”

Sorry – a certain vision just popped into my head.  Anyway,  as I was saying,  I went ahead and clicked the link anyway.  Why?  Although some might consider him brash at times, or perhaps a bit over the top, I was fairly certain of a couple of things.  First, it was going to be an interesting read, or in this case, view.  And second, it was going to be something of value.

I wasn’t disappointed.  I won’t tell you whether I already knew what it was or not.  Nor will I tell you what 3 words contained the secret.  I’m afraid you’ll have to go there yourself to find out.   If you do, then come back here and leave a comment.  Also would appreciate you passing it along on Facebook or Twitter.  Thanks.

5 Steps to Optimal Health

Are you looking to become healthier and have a better quality of life?    Well here are 5 simple steps that you can take to begin the journey to optimal health.

1.  Drink enough water.

How much is enough?  That actually varies, but considering your body is over 55% water, you should be drinking between 3 and 4 quarts per day, depending on whether you’re a woman or a man.  Don’t wait til you’re thirsty.  That indicator is a “little bit late to the party” if you get my drift.

2.   Exercise

The dreaded “E” word, right?  Well we’re not talking about running a marathon here, just an increase in your daily activity.  Requiring no equipment,  and something that can be accomplished in small time increments, increasing your walking is a great way to start.

3.   Cleanse

Oh boy, there’s one nobody wants to discuss in polite society.     But if you realized how much disease, lack of energy, and weight problems are caused by not properly cleansing your colon, you’d be amazed.

4.   Nourish

Eating is not necessarily nourishing.  You have to give your body the right nutrients to keep it working at peak efficiency.  We’re talking good nutrition here, but you also nourish your body through sleep, rest and relaxation.

5.   Target

We’re all different, and therefore have different health concerns.  What matters is that we understand that we need to take responsibility for our health and quality of life.  By providing nutritional support to target those areas,  we have a better chance at prevention when it comes to future problems.

So there you are, 5 simple steps that you can start with to improve your health and quality of life.
