Marketing Talk / Time Management Tips
« on: September 23, 2012, 07:05:46 PM »
Let's face it. One of the biggest challenges Internet marketers and aspiring Internet marketers face is TIME MANAGEMENT. I thought this article from Entrepreneur magazine's online site contained some good tips....

I've personally found that taking time to actually plan each day is critical to my productivity. When I don't do that, my productivity suffers.

Would you care to share some tips?

Product/Service Reviews / "Speak With Confidence" - Please Review
« on: September 17, 2012, 08:23:44 PM »
Hello RRW friends,

I've updated my ebook on the fear of public speaking. Its new title is "Speak With Confidence: How to Vanquish Your Fear of Public Speaking Forever." (Before, the title was the subtitle. I've added "Speak With Confidence"). Along with the title overhaul, I added to and enhanced the content.
**If you want to go directly to Amazon instead of using the above tinyurl link, that's fine. Just go to Amazon and search "Brian Tubbs" and "Speak With Confidence."

From tomorrow (Sept 18) through at least Thursday (Sept 20), it is available as a free download. If you wouldn't mind, please take a few moments to "buy" it (for free) via the Amazon Kindle site. (You don't need a physical Kindle. You can get a Kindle app for your smartphone, PC, or tablet). And then after reading it, please leave a review - even a critical review. And if you like it, please click 'like' as well as leaving a review.

Thank you for your time.

Marketing Talk / Making Money as a Fiction it possible?
« on: April 30, 2012, 02:47:04 PM »
For those of you who frequent the Warrior Forum, you know there have been several WSOs about how to make money writing fiction for the Amazon Kindle. Can you make money as a fiction writer? Yes. Is it easy? No. Allow me to share a little bit of perspective from my experience...

For the last few months, mainly due to work demands and because I found myself spending so much time on forums (and not enough doing stuff to make money), I stepped back from virtually all forum activity to focus on a few different business models to see which had the most promise. While there may be a handful of people who strike gold quickly in Internet marketing, the truth is that far more people LOSE money in IM than make money. And the reason is that most people spend years searching desperately for the "get rich quick" solutions so often promised by hyped-up headlines. When people get emotional and desperate, reason goes out the window. This kind of thing is now happening with many Internet marketers who are looking for gold at the end of the Amazon Kindle rainbow. You CAN make money writing fiction for the Amazon Kindle, but it's NOT going to be easy and matter what WSO or marketer tells you otherwise.

For the last several months, I've written several nonfiction eBooks that are selling fairly well on the Amazon Kindle. Three of them are actually Amazon bestsellers in their respective categories. I'm not making a ton of money, but a little bit of residual income each month is nice. After seeing the success in my nonfiction titles (which I'm still working on), I decided to try fiction. I purchased several WSOs and eBooks about writing fiction, and began applying some of those methods. What I found, though, is that it's a whole lot easier to buy a WSO or eBook about writing fiction than it is to actually WRITE fiction. :)

So far, I've written and published a handful of fiction titles....all under pen names. I am not making as much money with fiction as with nonfiction, BUT...I can see that may very well change in the next few months, because now I have a system and a direction. If you're interested in learning more, I wrote a post over at the Warrior Forum about coming up with plot/story ideas for your Kindle fiction...

While I focus on Kindle, the same principles hold true for Smashwords, the Nook, or any other eBook platform. Or for that matter, print platform.

I'm no Stephen King. :)  My fiction eBooks are not Pulitzer Prize literary masterpieces by any means. I'm learning as I go, but it's fun.

If you're interested in writing fiction on the Kindle and making money, it's definitely worth checking into. But don't make the mistake of buying into all the hype. Making money online (whether it's how-to or fiction) is a business and it involves WORK. In the case of writing fiction, the work can be fun, but it's still work.

Any other fiction writers want to share some tips, ideas, perspectives?

Technical Assistance / Selling and Transferring Domains

I have a bunch of domains at that I'm not using. I know it's easier to sell domains from a place like How do I go about selling and transferring domains from a host company? Has anyone done that? Has anyone worked with Hostmonster?

Marketing Talk / Need Graphics?
« on: June 10, 2011, 11:34:40 PM »
If you need graphics/pictures for a website, blog, or product, here's a link that I came across....

I have no affiliation whatever to the above link. I saw it in an ebook that I was reading, and thought that my friends here at RRW might be interested.



This appears to be an older home study course that is now being sold by resellers. I've seen copies on Ebay and Tradebit. Here are the details from another reseller....

It's a physical course, but the particular reseller above seems to offer a download version.

I don't know if this is something that RRW can purchase, but I thought I'd ask.

« on: February 21, 2011, 11:07:46 AM »
Hey Everyone,

In honor of George Washington's Birthday holiday, I wrote an article titled: "What if George Washington Had Never Been Born?" If you don't mind the shameless plug, you can read the article over at my American history blog...

Feedback Requests / Published my first Kindle ebook!
« on: February 10, 2011, 10:34:05 PM »
Hey Everyone,

I am now a published Kindle author. It was fun.

It's just a short 36-page (32-33 actual content pages) ebooklet on public speaking. I picked a topic with which I'm fairly knowledgeable and experienced. In this case, I focused on overcoming one's fear of public speaking. It's now live on the Kindle....

Would any of you mind reading it and posting a review on Amazon? If you'd be willing to do so, just shoot me a PM w/ your email and I'll send you the pdf of the ebooklet.


Marketing Talk / How NOT to make Money
« on: February 10, 2011, 10:16:35 PM »
Picked up a great ebook by Dennis Becker titled "5 Bucks a Day." I'm fast becoming a Dennis Becker fan, for his excellent "Earn1kaDay" website and for the ebook. In reading Mr. Becker's ebook, I came across this little nugget of wisdom....

"When I analyzed my day, it became clear that I never concentrated on any one thing for
more than a half hour at a time, usually not even that. Between emails (check them
every 15 minutes to see if any orders came in), phone calls, reading the latest musthave
e-Book that I purchased, catching up on the forums, tweaking my web site, and
lusting after the next must-have e-Book or CD/DVD course that was the missing link in
my knowledge base, I suddenly (duh!) realized that I wasn't giving myself a chance to

Hmmmm....that sounds.....familiar.

The way to NOT make money is to spread your energy and time across a number of different things, never focusing on one long enough to see it through to completion. Yup...been there, done that. That's how NOT to make money.

By contrast, the way TO make money is.....FOCUS.  That's what I'm working on for this year.

Marketing Talk / Press Releases - Effective? How do you do them?
« on: January 28, 2011, 03:09:09 PM »
How many of you use press releases to promote your online properties?  I'm curious as to how you do it and how effective you've found them to be.

Also...I understand that press releases need to be "newsworthy," but other than the "news" of your new product / site / etc., what are some newsworthy angles you've used?
