Archive for Alex Jeffrey Internet Marketing

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 😉

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 😉
