Page One Engine Bonus – How Things Change
How things change…
If 18 months ago you would have told me that I would have had a business partner, a thriving SEO agency & be part of one of the biggest IM launches of all time & be in a position to offer a Page One Engine Bonus I would have politely told you to ‘Do One!’
….but if you put the work in (& boy have we), it is amazing to see what you can achieve!
I am a firm believer in ‘What goes around comes around’ and as usual, it hasn’t let me down……that is not to say that I didn’t doubt it at times, you just need to keep plugging away.
What does make a massive difference is having a business partner – & a good one! I met Keith Dean about 15 months ago at a marketing seminar in Manchester, UK and to be honest we haven’t looked back since!
We have dabbled in a huge number of different projects/ideas…..some of them ‘didn’t have legs’, some we got bored of….but each step of the way we learned something new, gained experience & worked better & better together.
Jumping To Present Day – Page One Engine Bonus
We have provided a whole module in the ‘Advanced Tactics’ Section all to do with Link Building. We now have a website that goes into far more details about this – LinkEvolve.com – Feel free to head over there & sign up to our mailing list, we have a LOT of things lined up for this site & are committed to providing quality content at all times.
Currently we have a whole page which outlines all the software we use & what it does – over time we will be adding a page devoted to all these software’s with an over the shoulder look at what it does, how we use it & how we set it up – LinkEvolve.com – What Tools Keith & Nigel Use
Back to the course – there is a free E-Book that explains all about the course – but mostly, it is a fantastic starting point for anyone undertaking their first step in Internet Marketing – “Where The Big Dogs Roam“. It is over 60 pages of good content.
The book will be available – FREE- for 8 days only….as I write this (21st June 2015) the link is not ‘live’, I understand it goes live tomorrow – 22nd June 2015 & then it will be available until 30th June, then after this it will cost – So don’t delay, just get your free copy ASAP…..
I have seen the book (as Keith & I are in it!) – Chapter 17 is all about us!
Due to the nature of these launches, we have also provided a Page One Engine Bonus for whoever purchases the course through our link – This will be a workshop that we will provide free – Value of £997. More details are available on our YouTube video:
Anyway, watch this space – I will endeavour to update my blog as things ‘pan out’ over the coming month or so…
Cheers! – Nigel
5 Regrets of the Dying.
Okay okay….I am aware that this isn’t a great subject line for a Friday afternoon, but I think it is so important that I felt it needed to be shared.
There is nothing in here about getting on Page 1 of Google, free traffic sources of the latest ‘push button’ blueprint.
This is far more important than any of that. This is life….ironically the end of life.
I would hazard a guess that a lot of people involved in internet marketing have already had some sort of life epiphany which took them to want to follow that route – there are endless reasons: commuting, working for the man, not enough money, hating your boss, going nowhere, a divorce, a death, stuck in a rut, time constraints the list goes on & on.
This is a large factor in why us internet marketeers seem to be relentlessly posting & sharing quotes about life & motivation…we have already bought into the idea that there is something better out there for us & need constant motivation & reassurance that we are doing the right thing.
Which is where this article comes in. This takes one big step backwards so that the whole scene can be surveyed.
And that scene is LIFE.
I have seen the article quite a few times & it really hits home for me so thought it worthy of a post in case my readers have never seen it. It comes from a woman called Bronnie Ware, who ended up in a job linked with palliative care taking care of people in the final stages of life….as a result of this work, she compiled a list of the 5 most common regrets expressed by the people she cared for before they died.
This to me is the pinnacle of what all the quotes & motivation ‘tools’ are trying to do….they are trying to give you some sort of mind shift so you can break moulds & truly take back control of your life & find out what you want from it.
This is the ultimate in life lessons.
They are taught by people who have lived a life, know they are about to die & are able to look back at everything with what must be a very scary & sobering clarity.
Without further ado, here are the 5 main regrets from those she cared for:
1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
“This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it.”
2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
“This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret, but as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.”
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
“Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.”
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
“Often they would not truly realise the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.”
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
”This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.”

There you go…..I love this article.
I get it.
What I most like about it is that I really think that I don’t have any of those regrets…. but I am also aware that all of these could quite easily become regrets without really noticing (until it’s too late). So I am personally very glad it is now on my blog so I can revisit it every now & again to check that I am still doing okay.
I hope this has made useful & inspiring reading. What are your thoughts? I would love to know….drop me a line below.
Thanks for reading.
All Things Happen For A Reason….
Wow, it has been a Looooooong time since I’ve been on my website.
Does it mean I have been sat on my arse?…..no it hasn’t !!
I have learnt SO much in the past 9 months it is quite scary when I look back.
All the changes started when I stepped outside of my comfort zone & took a trip to Manchester to an Internet marketing ‘get together’/conference that was attended by some of the P2S lot….
I booked a hotel & took a train to Manchester knowing nobody whatsoever. Two nights.
I took myself off to the conference; looking back, I cringe a bit; I was trying to work out what I was going to wear for a start…..smart? smart casual? etc etc….you know what it’s like going into a totally new environment, you try and guess/judge what is respectable; you want to fit it & definitely don’t want to stick out !!
Well, as always, learning curves have to experienced in order to be learned – but in a nutshell – just wear what you want !!!!! – nobody gives a toss. There was some proper odd balls there & short of wearing a full blown Elvis costume & assigned myself to only talking in an ‘Elvis’ accent, nobody would have taken a blind bit of notice !!
As an industry, I shouldn’t have been surprised really…..let’s face, very few people start off a carer in IM, so most people will have had various years of working for others, wearing suits & being told what to do – isn’t this why so many mid life crisis end up into a little jaunt into the ‘World Of The Internet’ !?!?! – So why, if you go down that route, would give a sh*t what you wear !?!?!?
The few days were a real eye opener……some people that you wanted to have faith in gave you no faith at all. Some people were great & made the effort. Some people were just full of it. Some people thought they were selling rather than teaching. They was a real mix of people.
Out of what wasn’t a great experience to be honest, came a ‘chance’ meeting with another attendee from the same course (like I say, all things happen for a reason)…..we ‘bunked’ off the afternoon lecture on the 2nd day & went wandering into Manchester sharing ideas & stories of what we did, have tried, bought & invested in – lol, no we weren’t hand in hand skipping through leaves!!
Anyway, this meeting was 9 months ago & were have moved onward’s & upwards…..we have a company now & speak most days on Skype what is next, what else we are going to test etc…..it is a far from the World that I took a sneak peak into & one I am happy with & morally comfortable in….
…..but back to the moral of the story – all things happen for a reason – you may not think it at the time but it does……it’s funny how things work out….
Thanks for reading & I will now endeavor to update my blog with things I find of interest that others will hopefully find useful….
