Archive for Alex Jeffery Mentoring Program

As my subscribers and readers will have seen in my last post, Alex Jeffrey is running his mentoring course, and I have seen some great videos being produced by his students….

The reason being to see how much traffic can be generated, if I am correct the winning video will win a cash prize?

I am not part of the mentoring course, but have been assisting others where I can who are part of the F500. I have also been lucky enough to strike up some good online friendships with Garry Parkes, Gary Simpson, Dean Holland and not to forget the Purple Blog Queen – Nikki Stephens to name a few …..

Now having read on the students blogs of what they were trying to achieve …. I wondered how much traffic could I generate to my blog by creating an Alex Jeffrey’s video, just for fun and research purposes.

So here it is, drumroll please !!! ……… Alex Jeffreys – This is your Life!

Some readers have emailed me and also posted on my blog about trying to come up with ideas for their own videos…….

My advice is try and not think too hard, for me that was easy as I am not the sharpest tool in the box at times…..

It can be very easy to over complicate things, here is my story of how the above video was born ….

I had been viewing some of the Alex Jeffrey’s videos on Youtube and felt inspired, honest …..

I was reading a post on the Internet Temple Goo Roo himself Gary Simpson’s blog and mailed him to say I was thinking of creating a video to test what he had written on his blog , this was Monday past,

I work hard offline in my ‘day job’ so was not able to give too much thought to my ‘Alex Jeffrey – Theme’ ……

It was Wednesday now, and my good lady wife was going to work (I work shifts ) and was thinking about ‘What could I do???’

I then came up with ‘This is your Life’ theme, hopefully by now you will have viewed the video above ……

Now, this is where the don’t overcomplicate things (unless you are a video/musical editing wizard)

I had initially searched the internet to find the This is your Life Soundtrack

I would have that play and fade and begin the video commentary

I created my webpages in Dreamweaver and sourced the pictures etc for video

I then watched Nitin Mistry’s How to Video’s for editing music etc (this man is a talent!)

At this point, I thought ‘Tommy, you are over complicating things, and remember your ‘techie’ limits!’

I then decided to do a Dennis Waterman (Little Britain Style) Write the theme toon, Sing the theme toon etc, I intended to sound as bad as I did (HONEST!)

The antibiotics are still working their magic 😉

For those of my overseas readers that may be scratching their heads Dennis Who? Little What? ……

Dennis Waterman is an actor who has starred in The Sweeney, Minder, New Tricks etc, he writes, sings the theme tune and stars in the program etc, Little Britian Comedy Show did a ‘spoof’ of these facts and also that when the met him he seemed a whole lot smaller than he seems on the screen ……

Anyways, check it out here for a better idea……Dennis Waterman – Little Britain Style!

I guess I am trying to see how much traffic a ‘bad’ video can produce….

In my defense, I am still only about 60-70% fit, given the severe dose of Man Flu I have had lingering 4-5 weeks ….

If anything, hopefully the video will motivate others to give it a bash, as it can’t be any worse than mine lol 😉

As always, feel free to comment, laugh or post asking for me to be shot at dawn 😉

As some of my subscribers/readers will know Alex Jeffrey is currently running his internet marketing mentoring course.

I watched with great interest as the students have progressed throughout the course so far, and is showing that what Alex is teaching is working ……

Anyways back to the reason for the post, one of the modules that the students are completing at the moment is traffic generation, I have also read and heard that Alex has set a competition to his ‘peeps’ to create a video to pull in major traffic, I have had a smile and a laugh at a couple I have seen so far ….

Firstly, this is Nitin Mistry’s Video, very catchy and a contender for the next X-Factor me thinks…..

The Second video I have seen to day is Garry Parke’s video, gives a different slant and brought a smile to my face, I wonder where he got the bell idea from — Gazz-Man?? lol !! ** Look out for the Guitar Hero Display ** 😉


There is also a romour that there may be a Traffic Tornado coming from Down Under soon!! And no I did not have a bad curry !!! lol !!!

Any comments or if you have a better video let me know as I need a good laugh !
