WordPress Plugins BluePrint is now finished and live πŸ˜‰

I am sure it will be a valuable resource for your WordPress Blog ….

I want to first share the story about the creation of the WordPress Plugins BluePrint eBook and hope that it may drive you to create your own product and take action πŸ˜‰

Thanks to Marcus Passey, for allowing me to share this story πŸ˜‰ (Buddy you will be a star in the Internet Marketing Arena, keep the faith and focus ….. )

As you will know by now, I have always been open and honest that if you contact me for help or advice I will always look help you to overcome whatever problem or barrier that you may be struggling with ….

Anyways, back to my story …..

Marcus contacted me on my cell phone a while back asking for some help and guidance with creating a new product ….

We arranged a time to have a one to one brainstorming session and set to work, lots of ideas were being generated , one of which was a WordPress Plugins eBook ……

Reasoning I had behind it was ….. easy to research , sought after topic, would be good product either to sell or build a list with it …..

Marcus did not agree with me and plumped for another topic …… I respected this, but the WordPress Plugin idea was still niggling at me, so I decided to create it myself πŸ˜‰

As well as being a valuable resource to add to my current products, I hoped it would inspire others, as one of the common problem or personal barriers I find that most people encounter is that of having a lack of confidence and the feeling of “I can’t do that!” ….

This is a natural stumbling block, but I was hoping that this may possibly drive someone to ‘grab the bull with the horns’ and go for it, everyone has it in them to create a book πŸ˜‰

And so …………

WordPress Plugins BluePrint was born!!! Woo Hoo πŸ˜‰

(Marcus has joked with me, that he wished he had gone for that idea after seeing finished product …. I do however know that his product will be a corker as well …… )

Ok, I am sure that WordPress Plugins BluePrint will help you improve your WordPress Blog, I have as promised in my last video also included the following for you:

A Squeeze Page (Just copy & paste your AWeber Code or Payment Button)
A Download Page
A Download Folder
Your Resell Licence with support details

All you need to do is upload to your webspace and away you go πŸ˜‰

You can Download your copy by clicking the image below:

Click here to get your copy of WordPress Plugins BluePrint

There will be regular updates as there are 1000’s of WordPress Plugins for many functions, I was concious that I did not want to just cram the book full of Plugins just for the sake of it πŸ˜‰

However, this is your eBook so to speak so if you have any suggestions or want your own Plugin included within future versions of WordPress Plugins BluePrint, then post a comment below …..

Again, big thanks to Marcus and I hope you the reader enjoy this ebook and maybe even go on to create your own product, if not then feel free to utilise this product within Giveaways, Memberships to earn money or help build your subscriber list …..

Keep any eye out as I will be launching Niche Blogging Riches towards the end of this month (another product I hope will help you πŸ˜‰ )

I am in the process of creating some promo videos for another very special project I have planned in January 2010 …….

So all in all some big things happening at ‘Tommy Towers’ ………

Meantime, enjoy WordPress Plugins BluePrint and feel free to retweet πŸ˜‰

It has been a long time since I have been excited about a product that someone other than myself is launching …….

What is the product I hear you ask, well it is called – John Thornhill’s Profit From PLR

As in my previous post about things to think about when creating your first eBook, one of the questions was can I use a Private Label Rights eBook to create my product?

What is Private Label Rights?

Private Label Right products in a nut shell are yours to own, edit, sell, resell, grant resale rights to and more. Basically you are the author of the product without writing or creating a thing.

So it does not take a genius to realise the value of these products. (If used correctly πŸ˜‰ )

You can use PLR as your own and sign your name as the creator. Putting it simple, you have a business in a box within minutes writing a single word.

When you have your own PLR products you can:

Sell them on their own mini site – Use the PLR material to create
your own mini website and sell your products from there.

Add them to bigger packages – Take 3 or 4 related PLR products
and add them to a larger package. This is turn will allow you to
sell your package for a much higher price and create for yourself
a great source of income for very little effort.

The choices are endless when you have the content at your disposal.

The only thing that most people struggle with is how to make the product their own and get it up and running and market
it in the correct manner …..this is where John comes in.

John Thornhill has created a new product called Profit From PLR. Now profit from PLR shows you exactly what to do with the PLR content you have.

In the form of video tutorials, John will walk you through a series of phases which will learn you the techniques needed to make your PLR a success.

I have been part of John’s Mentoring Program, this is why I am excited as I fully appreciate the value and power of the Profit from PLR package. Not to mention that John makes close to $1 Million Dollars a year with digital products!!

As most of you as my readers/subscribers will know I have quite a few products in the pipeline for release, so I am fully compentent in creating a product and getting it ready for release to market …..

I am continuing to push myself hard, this will benefit you as I am coming out of my comfort zone and have put together a very special offer, such is the high regard I have for this product:

You can view the offer, at the link below:


John’s product is in pre-launch and there is a free video showing how to make $2,000 a week on autopilot, afterwhich he has a very special offer for those interested for the first couple of days ……

So, if you are thinking about creating your own product, I would ask you check it out, you will be glad you did


As always if you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear them …….

How are we all doing today?

This post is continuing on from the Things to think about when writing your first eBook Post ……

I also seem to be continuing on with the movies theme and the other day I started to feel like George Lucas – creator of Star Wars Movies …….

Let me explain, as again you might be thinking from Po the Panda to Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker lol !!!! πŸ˜‰

Over the last couple of months, I have been trying to refocus all my energies into creating products and with that hopefully provide consistant value to you my reader/subscriber.

I won’t say too much just now but there will be a few new products appearing very soon, on top of this I had started writing an eBook – On how to create an eBook, in which I will cover everything from start to finish ……

Ok, so where does WordPress Plugins Blueprint eBook and George Lucas come in??? Good Question …..

Well, the reason I felt like George Lucas, is that he stated when creating the Star Wars movies, he had the vision on how the story would pan out hence the first movie was actually episode IV in the series before we saw the full vision after episode III many years later …..

This is how I felt at 4am on Thursday morning, yes 4am !! when I in my mind had pictured my path online and where I will ultimately be I hope to be at end of 2009 ….

So I think I am starting at my episode IV and until I reveal the full picture of where I will be it may not make total sense …….. it is like writing a book, you have your ending and working backwards πŸ˜‰

Ok, so I have started writing my creating an eBook project, so why jump to WordPress Plugins eBook??

The reason being I thought I could use this as a working example within my first eBook, how did the topic come about for this …..

I received a call from Marcus Passey and we had a long conversation about how to create a product and brainstormed some topics, one of the topics I suggested was WordPress Plugins, a good and easy topic to research and something that would interest thousands of WordPress Blog owners …… as well as show the true power of WordPress ……

Marcus plumped for a short WordPress Video Series (Well Done for taking action Marcus! πŸ˜‰ )

The WordPress Plugins idea was still swishing about in my head along with a few other ideas …… so I did a bit of research and came up with the WordPress Plugins BluePrint Domain Name …….

This is the point where I open this up to you πŸ˜‰

I have as I spoke about earlier started to create the backbone of my eBook on my hardback notebook …..

Some of the topic chapters are going to be :

Membership Sites Plugins
Social Media Plugins

Search Engine Optimization
Review Site Plugins
Admin Plugins …. etc etc

May well write about around 150-250 WordPress Plugins, tagline I have in my head would maybe something like ‘Transform your Blog into WordPress PowerHouse’ or something similiar ……

So what would you suggest should be included in the eBook?

With respect to the creating an eBook, I have not even thought of a title yet …….

What would you suggest I call that eBook?

I will look to give away 3 branded copies of the WordPress Plugins BluePrint eBook to the best suggestions ….. this will include your website/blog address, your affiliate links (remember some WordPress Plugins will be Premium Plugins πŸ˜‰) , also there will be definately one affiliate link within the eBook that will earn you $48.50 a sale!!!

So Let the Brainstorming begin πŸ˜‰

Look forward to hearing your comments and thoughts as always πŸ˜‰

I thought I would post something a bit light hearted today, as I think I need it as it has been a stressful week …..

I have no doubts you might be thinking I have lost my marbles, or extremely rude by comparing you to a Panda lol !!!

Let me explain, I was taping a few movies on my Virgin Media + box for when I might have a minute to see them, now I taped Kung Fu Panda, (allegedly for my nephew *cough cough*)

A week or so after recording it, I thought I would watch it , easy relaxation while I did housework etc, for those who have not watched let me give you a quick run down:

Po the Panda, works in a family noodle restaurant, he wishes he could be a Kung Fu warrior like 5 super cool kung fu warriors, if I remember rightly one was a Tigeress, a Snake, a grasshopper, a crane and a monkey and a small rodent sort of master ( must of been hoovering at that point ha ha ha! )

Now, the story continues that it is time to pick the Dragon Warrior, who will bring peace to the valley, after a bit of tooing and frowing Po the Panda locked out of ceremony chairs with fireworks etc, The wise old Tortoise – chooses Po as the Dragon Warrior as deemed by the Dragon Sacred Scroll , master trains Po reluctantly at first but no matter who many setbacks Po does not quit as his belief is so strong, a bit of saving the Village, Po gets the Dragon Scroll and understands the message ….. beat the bad guy and saves the village …. Woo Hoo !!

So what does has this have to do with Internet Marketing?

Well, I have no doubts like myself you may have had dreams and aspirations to be a successful within the Internet Marketing cirlces – This is Po?

If like myself you have wished you could be as successful as others online, for me would be Alex, John, Ray, Deano, Lee etc …. These are the super cool dudes

You get yourself a mentor/master to teach you the secrets of Internet Marketing, for me the above cool dudes

Now even with all that the mentors teach you, there are many times you fail, or hit hurdles you need to overcome, for me I perserve till I get there

Now as with the Dragon Sacred Scroll, you could compare that to when you are starting out in the Internet Marketing field, like I did you may think there must be some sort of mega secret that only the chosen few successful marketers know ……

Bet you are excited now, as I am getting to the part of revealing the contents of the Dragon Sacred Scroll ………

Well here it is, when Po opened up the Sacred Scroll to learn all it’s wisdom, all he saw was the reflection of himself staring back ….. the penny dropped ….

Anyone could be the Dragon Warrior , you just had to believe in yourself ……..

I must of been a sight to see sitting there watching it, having a laugh out loud chuckle to myself as I thought how true this is in Internet Marketing ……

So there you have it ……

No matter what your Mentor teaches you, implement, take action and most importantly ………

Believe in yourself!! only you can make it happen, and it will if you believe in yourself ……. and that you will be the next Internet Marketing Success Story

So are you Po the Panda?

Let me know your thoughts and comments as always πŸ˜‰

Well hello peeps, hope you are well this fine Sunday ……

A few students of Alex & Dean have been asking me …….

How do I create an eBook ?

This question is a very positive one in my opinion as it means that what people are learning during their coaching so much so they feel confident enough to begin to take action ……

IΒ am flattered that people are looking to me for advice when I feel I am still learning myself and by no means consider myself an expert by any meansΒ  πŸ˜‰

There are a few things to think about before putting virtual pen to virtual paper ……

What is the purpose of the eBook/Report?

The eBook could be a free product to build your list or you could be creating a paid product to sell ? This may determine the content and length of eBook ….

What will I write about?

This is a common question when trying to write your first eBook, most eBooks solve a problem …..

For example, How to bake a cake, How to Build a Computer, How to make money, How to ……. I think you get the idea …..

It is helpful I would think to write about something you have knowledge in and a passion to start, as you progress I have no doubts you will be able to write about any topic with a little research …..

How do I research topic and find content?

There are a few ways to do this, the obvious one would be Google, Read other peoples articles/books on the subject etc ….. another way is to tap into other peoples knowledge, get others to provide the answers for you ……

By this I mean write a Blog Post – What would list as your Top 10 Twitter Tools/ WordPress Plugins etc etc

People willl provide you with your answers and some content with your eBook

How do I structure my eBook?

Most eBooks begin with contents, disclaimer , itroduction etc to get the chapters structure, I use a hard back notebook, I think about the topic I am writing about, I then break the tasks into small steps and bulletpoint each step these then start to form my chapters base- for example my last eBook – Research Niche, Choose Domain Name, Register Domain Name……. etc etc

You will now have the bones of your eBook and all you need to do is to put some meat on them πŸ˜‰

How long should my eBook or FREE Report be?

There is no set rule for this, if a paid product as long as you like to maybe give value, a FREE Report then I would suggest around 30-50 Pages, however I have seen reports only 12 pages long but such was the content it did not need more, so if you can say it in 12 pages good on you πŸ˜‰

Should I use PLR eBooks to create my eBook?

This is an option, if you decide to do this it is important to totally rewrite it and make it your own, many a time I see people insert their own links and pass it off as their own, while this seems ok to do, if you are trying to possibly brand yourself or create an impression of being an authority in a certain area make sure it is your own work……

I would look at using PLR as a time saver, by that I mean getting together the bones of the eBook and then I put the my own meat on it so to speak πŸ˜‰

How many Affiliate Links should be in my eBook?

There is no definative answer to this question, every eBook is different, an important point to remember is that your eBook content should flow naturally to the reader if it is punctured with blue clickable links everywhere when there is no need then the likelyhood is you will get an unsubscribe to your list or hit with a refund request.

You can research Clickbank, PayDotCom etc for appropriate products if required.

The above are just general pointers for you to think about when considering your first eBook …… the products below are free resources that could further help you when you get round to taking action πŸ˜‰ :

Open Office : This is a free open source product similiar to Microsoft office that will help you create your eBook and convert into a .pdf format

Click Here to Download Open Office Suite

CamStudio Screen Recording Software: Similiar to Camtasia Studio but free πŸ˜‰ will enable you to create video tutorials and record screen and edit

Click Here to Download a Copy of CamStudio Screen Recording Software

Screen Hunter Screen Capture Software Similiar to TechSmiths SnagIt Software, this will help you create Screenshots for your eBook πŸ˜‰

Click Here to Download a Copy of Screen Hunter Screen Capture Software

Hopefully this post will have provided some help to those taking the step towards creating their own product ……

As always, feel free to post any comments and questions …. I will do what I can to give you a helping hand to getting your product finished …….

Right I am off to watch the Glasgow Celtic v Tottenham Hotspur Wembley Cup Match ……. have a great Sunday πŸ˜‰
