Saturday Musings – How To Be Successful in Life...

I must admit that I was really nervous writing this title today because it suggests that I have the answer to the underlying question of “How can I be successful in life?”. Well, I hate to disappoint you but I don’t have all of the answers…..but I do have some.

To me, success has less to do with bank accounts and more to do with relationships. The most important relationship in my life is with my wife. Roselyn and I have been married for nearly 30 years (big anniversary next year!) and like any marriage it hasn’t always been smooth sailing.

We’ve had difficulties to overcome but over the years we’ve discovered an amazing secret. It’s really simple, “Don’t be selfish”. What we found was the more we tried to meet each other’s needs the more our own needs got met. It’s actually pretty cool.

I’ve seen a lot of marriages fall apart and normally the parties say at some point that their spouse didn’t meet their needs. My advice, stop focusing on you and focus on the other person. The risk here is what happens if they don’t meet your needs still…..trust me, they will. This isn’t a solution for all relationships but it goes a long way to helping out.

So likewise, I try and bring this mindset into business relationships. How can I help out this client even if it means I don’t get the business? For example, just today I recommended to a domain owner that they should keep on doing what they are and not move their domains to ParkLogic. They were in a unique situation and trying to twist their arm would have been a disservice.

What focusing on your relationships forces you to do is take a long-term view. I may not do a deal with someone today but there’s always tomorrow. It means you’re focused on building trust rather than just your bank account.

What ends up happening is you do business with good quality people where you have developed strong relationships. Like a marriage, those relationships will be tested at times and if they are strong then they will last for years and years. It also means that you’ll have a lot of fun in business with great people along the journey.

Anyone can do transactions, buy or sell something to someone you will never see again. Business is different. It’s all about repeat transaction where people trust each other and look out for each other.

I have the privilege of counting many of the people that I do business with as friends. They may run parking companies, hold large portfolios or monetise traffic in unique ways but what’s special about our friendships is there is a commitment to the relationship that is beyond just business.

Next time you talk to one of your partners, business colleagues, clients, children or wife ask yourself, “What can I do for them?” You may be amazed by their response.

Have a great weekend!

Just think of the long term relationships formed between Marketing Strategists, whose .COM Profit Center Assets deliver the Compounding Traffic potential only found in the .COM Profit Centers Marketing Strategy?

In this Generic Alphabet soaked GOOGLE atmosphere, you need to differentiate your companies Brand. Its a matter of Online Business survival. Its not enough that you crave your Brands differentiation from the pack of competitors you are competing with. The Big question is how will GOOGLES Search Engine Marketing contribute to your cause?

The Search Engine Marketing Model that Google-Centric Admen use unknowingly suckers your Business into a traffic stealing maze that, leads your Businesses Brand into a jungle or maze of never ending competitive choices in page after page of never ending choices, further Marginalizing and Diluting your businesses Brands ability to stand apart from Googles assemblage of page after page of your businesses most feared competitors, that are just one Click away on the same page as yours !

So if you do not want to expose your online business traffic to be channeled away from you and sent to your competitors, by all means steer clear of the Google MADMEN. Its a trap that many businesses are in.

Hello Michael,

Search Engine Marketing, has morphed into a futile attempt to control and mitigate maximum Online Business Expansion on a Global Basis. Its concept is to Dilute corporate Brands drawing power and to control access to online businesses, through incessant Algorithm changes so as to mask Googles Rapidly expanding Utilization Capacity GAP.

Yes this is how Google serves their Ad Base, by charging exorbitant fees as a gatekeeper employing a collusive jungle of illegal Digital Code Manipulation that blocks the pathway to Online Businesses. Sound Sinister ? Yes , Is it going to be allowed forever ? NO

All Domain Name System Hierarchy Extension owners. Make no Mistake about it that the real threat to DNS Hierarchy comes from Googles assault to destabilize the whole DNSs Nuetrality, through deceptive Anti-competitive Digital Code Manipulation within their Monopolistic Garden Maze of twisted Digital code designed to mitigate and block the finding of Online companies according to fair and free market standards.

The Era of SEO Manipulated Search Engine Marketing is waning and giving way to recycling back to identifiable and meaningfull Online Business Names. Early in The SEO Manipulated search Engine Era a name like Google or yahoo or aviya or ------------- were able to be found through Search Engine Marketing because the channels for doing so were functional to a limited degree.

Now to cover up the SEM Models inadequacy in facilitating business expansion GOOGLE WHO IS Emulated by others who subcribe to the SEM Model , are incessantly adding ALGO Changes, to cover up the Cache 22 Enigma Fantasy of finding Online Businesses through the Highly obsolesced Search Engine Model of Marketing Online. The Google Search Engine alone has the data of 30 trillion Unique websites, dumped into its massively overloaded data base, causing a tremendously dysfunctional process. The Google Search Engine Process for finding anyones Online Business is called (Marketing Saturation Obsolescence) http://www.businessinsider.com/500m-things-google-has-never-heard-of-2013-5#ixzz2TK2lnz1R

The future holds nothing but more Market saturating dumps of Bastardized and manipulated data to the already overloaded Search Engine Model, increasing its already Dysfunctional ( SEM )Marketing Platform. Now Add to this already inefficient Business Locating (SEM) Model , additional new Hordes of new Quasi-derivative Obsolesence gTLDs and you have a formula to mask Googles glaring Anti-Competitive Stranglehold on standing in the way of Maximum Online Business Expansion. You can see why the E.U. is pursuing Anti-Competition Charges.

Whats really Going Down !

Many of the would be buyers are New TLD owners looking for a quality .COM Profit Center and are angry and are feeling betrayed by All the New TLD PROMOS meant to decieve Domainers and Web Site Owners.

The new Google financed and inspired TLDs introductions, that Google heavily promoted ICANN accepting, were never meant to be extensions that would be used predominately for Stand Alone Business Destinations. Their Highest and Best use would be for proliferating Digital Junk Mail infused into Googles SEO Maze.They would be Googles tools to expand their Search Engine Marketing Base. This Marketing strategy has succeeded extremely well.

Domainers not aware of this big picture started speculating in new TLDs as being capable of being stand alone Business destination addresses. This was due to the new TLD promoters concerted effort to employ Bait and Switch advertising by assigning the .COM assets values and strengths to the new TLDs in other words Bait and Switch deceptive Marketing.

This questionable strategy is now becoming more evident and Domainers are waking up after the fact of purchasing new TLDs only to find them to be Debt lease obligations and NOT resembling anything close to .COM Assets.

Domainers are being Fleeced.
