American Express and Twitter, WTF, SMH02.19.13

Yesterday, I got one of those emails in my inbox that made my eyes go wide, eyebrows go up, mouth open wide and…what do they call that now? SMH? Yeah, definitely that.

Here’s the subject of the email:
Sync your Card to shop on Twitter with #AmexSync

…and the headline inside the email:
“Sync your eligible American Express Card with Twitter to purchase hot products with Tweets”

It goes on to explain the process…
1) Sync
2) Tweet special #hashtags (like #BuyXbox360Bundle or #BuyKindleFireHD)
3) Look for a response from @AmexSync with a confirmation #hashtag
4) Confirm by tweeting the confirmation #hashtag within 15 minutes…and the purchase is made.

I’ll admit that it’s a cool concept, but OH MY GOSH. Have you been to twitter lately? Just one glance at my direct messages, and it’s pretty darn clear that there’s a lot of hacking going on there. I get multiple messages every day asking if I “saw this picture of me.” Heck, my account was even hacked, TWICE, and someone posted all about how I was making hundreds of dollars a day filling out surveys. Yipee!

So I guess what I’m saying is…who the @#%! would connect a credit card – something I *think* would be kind of nice to keep secure – to a platform that’s notorious for being hacked?

Unless you’d like someone to order you an #XboxController or something…

Oh, by the way, looks like there are exactly 5 products you can purchase. SMH.

Get The List Roadmap – And Other Online Training – FREE02.17.13

A couple of months ago, I spent a few days getting a bunch of my most highly requested training courses into a membership site. These courses included:

My goal? To make these courses available free to my team members (those who work with me here). I figured it would just be too much trouble to create separate accounts in each course’s site…this would be a quick way to give someone access quickly.

Well – it turns out it was a good thing I did that.

This morning, while transferring one of my lists from aweber to list animal, I clicked to test a link, and realized the website for The List Roadmap had been taken down. YIKES! This is a course I spent several months creating, and ended up selling with the help of a friend who decided – without considering it might be nice to let me know – that he was stepping away from the IM game.

Well – now all my sites and autoresponders are updated, I’m happy to say – and I would love to give you access to all of these courses.

Only two of these are still available to the general public – MAP and IMBT – and two others, TLR and MLS, are completely gone.
Here’s what I hope you’ll learn from this series of courses:

  1. How to build a list on the web or on mobile
  2. How to rank your site on the web
  3. How to make money building someone else’s list as a mobile affiliate
  4. How to promote mobile apps for the iPhone and Android
  5. How to generate leads for an online business
  6. And probably a bunch more things 🙂

And here’s what to do to get them, free of charge:

STEP 1: Go here
STEP 2: Sign up
STEP 3: Call or email me and request access

Yep, that simple.

Money Bags (Thanks Kathryn)05.31.11

Don’t you just LOVE junk mail?

I mean, really – the junk mail you get from your friends…
I truly believe there is nothing more powerful than
those stupid chain letters you get.

They used to come in the mail…

And now, of course, they’re delivered right to your inbox.

Now, what makes these so incredibly powerful is
the need you feel to forward them along. Isn’t that true?

Like this one, that I received from my friend (and massage
therapist) Kathryn:

It’s worth a try…………….interesting
have a great day!!

Money bags

This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens
once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So, forward this to
your friends and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese
Feng Shui. The one who does not forward…..will be without money.

Kinda interesting – read on!!!

This year we’re going to experience four unusual  dates.

1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11 and that’s not all…

Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born – now add
the age you will be this year,

The results will be 111 for everyone in whole world. This is the year of
the Money!!!

The proverb goes that if you send this to eight good friends money will
appear in next four days as it is explained in Chinese FENGSHUI.

Those who  don’t continue the chain won’t receive…….

Its a mystery, but its worth a try.

So are you feeling the need to forward this along?
I’ll admit, there’s more power to it when it arrives in your inbox…

But either way, take this as a powerful lesson…
When you’re writing your auto responder messages –
or sending out a broadcast…

What can you do to make your emails this powerful?
So powerful that you get a response?

Want to forward this along? Just use the ‘Favorites’ link at the bottom…
