        1.  Welcome and Update from Elena

        Hello again and a warm welcome to all the new subscribers who
        have joined us since the last issue!

        This is the last issue of AHBBO for 2017.  The next issue will
        be published January 7.  For this, the last issue of 2017, the year
        of the great internet shakeout, perhaps the first of many, I wanted
        to write an article that would kind of sum up the realities of this
        ride we're all on.  Then I realized I'd already written it.  One of my
        first articles was "The Internet Is Another Medium ... Not Another
        Planet!".  I wrote it shortly after creating the first AHBBO website.
        And I created the first AHBBO website in response to the very
        things I wrote about in that article.  So, I think it's fitting to end
        2017 with that article as it is as relevant today, perhaps even
        more so, than when it was first written over a year and a half

        I'd like to take this opportunity to wish every one of you who
        celebrate Christmas a happy, safe and prosperous Christmas and
        New Year. 

        As always, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy this week's

        2.  Home-Based Business Idea of the Week - Cable TV Spots

        If you have cable, you've no doubt seen local advertising on most
        of the channels. There are three ways a local business could
        produce a commercial. One, they could do it themselves (and we
        all know what that looks like); two, they could have the local cable
        business do it for them (which can also look quite amateurish); or
        they can have an outside individual do the production. This is where
        you come in.

        If your video skills are top-notch, you can produce excellent
        commercials for local businesses at agreeable prices. If you have
        marketing skills, so much the better, but it's not an absolute
        requirement. As long as you can clearly answer the "4 W"
        questions (who, what, where and why), your commercial will be

        The only drawback to this business is that you should use 3/4 inch
        broadcast format video, which is incompatible with a home
        videocamera. A camera for this type of videotape usually costs around
        $3000, less if it's used. There is a way around this expense, though.

        4.  Tips for Newbies

        TIP #1: How to properly remove programs from your computer:

        Windows 95 (and 98) has a little program that helps you
        delete applications safely and CORRECTLY. Why correctly?
        Because a lot of new software leaves entries in the Registry,
        and unless you uninstall your programs, the excess code gets
        left behind. Not so tidy. So when you want to delete an
        application, follow these steps:

        1. Click Start.
        2. Choose Settings + Control Panel.
        3. In the Control Panel window, double-click the Add/Remove
        Programs icon.
        4. Under "The following software can be automatically removed
        by Windows..." select the application you want to remove.
        5. Click Add/Remove and follow the instructions to remove the
        application. It will show you dialog boxes to assist you in the

        TIP #2: How to start your programs in their minimized state:

        Assuming you've already placed a shortcut in the Startup folder,
        right-click the shortcut and select Properties. Click the Shortcut
        tab, click the down arrow next to Run, and select Minimized.
        Click OK, and from now on, starting Windows will launch that
        application and then send it directly to your Taskbar.

        5.  This Week's Subscriber Web Site Pick - Bizetimes.com

        Long-time subscriber Lana Scroggins emailed me yesterday to
        say that she'd just finished the very first issue of her new
        newsletter and wanted me to take a look at it.  I did and it was
        excellent.  So was her website so I invited her to give me some
        background so I could feature it here this week.  Here's Lana's

        "Background is that I got started building the site about two years
        ago and then last year I got breast cancer.  It was just about
        the time you came out with your newsletter tutorial and I studied
        it and decided that I could do a newsletter.  But then I got sick
        and during that time when I wasn't feeling so well, I read your
        newsletters and Kim Skinner's newsletters and several other
        people that advertise in yours and Kim's newsletters and tried to
        keep up with what was going on in the online marketing world
        through your newsletters.

        "Then a friend of mine wanted me to do some research for her on
        Affiliate Marketing and so I did that and decided that I would take
        all that and put it into my website. She gave me permission to use
        all the information we had gathered and I have it in pieces ready to
        load into my web pages.

        "So, I know there are a lot of sites on online marketing already out
        there and on affiliate marketing also and you always said to get a
        niche for your site and so I decided to put all of the good affiliate
        marketing sites together and link to them instead of trying to
        compete with them.

        "I have people come to my site to find where to go to find the
        best sites in online marketing and affiliate marketing. My plans
        are to link to your site, Kim Skinner's site, Ken Evoy's site, Ruth
        Townsend's site, and several others that are too numerous to

        "But, it has seemed like over the last year while I was sick and I
        just read and studied all of your information in your newsletter and
        website that several of you are advertising in each other's
        newsletters and are kind of partnering up to get more people to
        your sites. I find your ads in their newsletters and their ads in
        yours and so it seems that you all are advertising in each other's
        newsletters because it works to get more people to your site.

        "Now I am feeling better and not having any more chemo or
        radiation and on the road to recovery and I am ready to make
        money with my newsletter and website. I am accepting free ads
        for the newsletter because I just have almost 200 subscribers so
        far and I would like to have more. I think I have heard you or
        someone in the group I subscribe to that you don't start charging
        for ads until you have about 1000 subscribers.

        Thanks again,

        Lana Scroggins

        "P.S. I also am looking for some good ways to advertise our latest
        product that we have just released with the company I work with.
        It is a Non-Surgical Face Lift. This thing is hot and everyone
        loves it.  One reason we love it so much is you can tell it's working
        after just one application. So, I am looking for some good advertising
        places that work, so if you know of any that you have been
        successful with and want to pass along that would be very much


        First off, Lana, congratulations on being on the mend and very best
        wishes (from all of us, I'm sure) for a full and complete recovery.

        A couple of points Lana raises are worth highlighting.  The first
        is the importance of focusing on your niche.  I've said it over
        and over (Lana was obviously paying attention!), you cannot be all
        things to all people.  Period.  Especially online.  There will always
        be someone with a bigger and better mousetrap.  The key is to
        carve out your own little corner of the 'net and make it your own.
        Then you don't have to think about what everyone else is doing. 
        Just concentrate on what you're doing and run your own race. 
        For more on finding your niche, read "What's Your Niche?".  It's
        at http://www.shelteredturtle.com/niche.html .

        The second thing Lana mentions is this business of groups of
        people getting together and cross-promoting.  This is another
        very important strategy for generating traffic, subscribers and
        business.  The Internet is kind of like Los Angeles.  When you
        first arrive, it's just huge and vast and sprawling.  There is no
        real "hub" as such.  You kind of just land and have to work out
        where you belong -- find your niche, in other words!  You begin
        to realize after a while, though, that where you're going wrong
        is trying to look at it as a whole.  The trick is to zero in on
        neighborhoods that you like.  Break it down into more manageable,
        bite-size pieces.  So form alliances with fellow webmasters and
        publishers and cross-promote yourselves.  You'll find it's very
        effective at generating traffic and ezine subscribers, not to mention
        creating your own neighborhood that you will feel right at home in.

        Finally, Lana, that non-surgical facelift thing, it's really not my
        niche so I don't know the best place to advertise, but consider
        this a freebie.  :-)


        If you want your site seen by thousands, write and tell me
        about it!  But make sure it's one you've created yourself
        or have had created especially for you.  No self-replicating affiliate
        sites please.
