How To Build A Funded Proposal

All productive relationships are built on trust between two people and doing business is no different. Generally, for a sale to take place there has to be a relationship of trust between the purchaser and the supplier. In the world of big business and multinational companies the relationship may be between a brand name and the person buying, as in “I always buy a Mercedes because they never break down”!

When you are buying face to face or from a recognised brand it is easy to make a “trust” judgement and commit to the purchase. One of the challenges of the online world however, is that there have been some very dodgy people who have effectively “scammed” their customers and this has lead to prospective purchasers being very guarded in their decisions. The world of Internet Marketing certainly has some credibility issues!

A Funded Proposal is in part a way of dealing with this and starting to build a relationship with your customer base. By initially offering a high value but low cost product, you capture the customer’s contact information (usually their e-mail) and now have permission to market to them on an ongoing basis. This now becomes an automated drip feed of increasingly more expensive goods or services until some will buy your headline product.

In “How To Build A Funded Proposal”, matt lloyd takes you through the exact system he has used to take his business from $700 a month to over $300,000 a month in just over a year and a half! Everything is laid out in a clear and progressive way with nothing hidden or left for doubt.

Setting up a funded proposal is an essential skill for anyone serious about building a sustainable business online. Watch Matt’s free online training webinar to see exactly how it should be done!


Matt Lloyd’s “my online business empire” license rights program is definitely something that anyone looking to make money online should take a look at.

Matt devised this program as a viable alternative to affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is no longer the business it was and it has become a very difficult for a beginner to make any real money in it. The M.O.B.E. license rights program is a much easier system to work with an doffers a great starting point for anyone hoping to become independently wealthy.

So, how does it work? With this program, you will become a fully licensed partner of Matt’s proven business model that does over $260,000 per month in sales. In real times this is very similar to buying into an offline franchise – all the hard work has been done for you and, so long as you follow the system, you will get results! With the license you have the right to sell Matt’s products by driving qualified traffic to your partner links. From there on his own staff take over the follow-up and upsell process and they are VERY good at what they do!

As your efforts build you may soon find yourself on track towards earning an income that would be far greater than any of the commissions available through traditional affiliate marketing programs. Having worked as an affiliate marketer for several years I can vouch for the fact that M.O.B.E is a far superior approach that will allow even a total newbie to start earning an online income.

And here’s the reason. When you act as an affiliate you get to keep only a small percentage of the purchase price, your commission for gaining the sale. With the M.O.B.E program you keep up to 90% of the initial purchase price and up to 50% of any upsell products that the customer later buys!

All Matt’s products are cutting edge information and online marketing products and are great practical tools in their own right. Among the products you would be selling would be the My Email Marketing Empire, How to Build a Funded Proposal, Affiliate Bonus Domination, and the 10,000 Leads in 100 Days. However, the real strength of the system is the full time sales team that Matt employs to follow up with your leads and close them on your behalf! The closing rates of this team is way above the industry average and this is definitely “the difference that makes the difference”!

Because you are not required to create your own product; or design and set up landing pages or websites; or have to build a list or organise webinars;  etc, etc, you are able to start earning money very quickly. All you have to do is send traffic to Matt’s links and the “system” takes care of the rest

The “My Online Business Empire” licensing model is a very novel concept and many of Matt’s licensees have achieved great success – including many who have “failed” to make money using other online programs. Those interested in trying out an alternative to affiliate marketing might consider this venture to be worth the investment.

Wealthy Affiliate University

What is your motivation? Are you in a job that you hate, just living for the weekends and holidays? Perhaps you have been made redundant or have just retired and found that money is very tight? Whatever your reasons here is one of the most important lessons of earning money online – WORK YOUR PASSION!

Trying to do something that you are not passionate about is soulless and will eventually crush your spirit. But when you are sharing something you really love it somehow doesn’t seem like work any more. Everything changed for me when I made this jump and you will save yourself a huge amount of pain and anguish if you get this right now.

This is why I love the Wealthy Affiliate University. Their starting point is to get you to tell the world about your passion and make money while you do so! If that seems too simple let’s break down the steps to see why the Wealthy Affiliate University provides you with the best training and resources for making money online.

In true Internet Marketing style I’m going to calls these the Four Magic Steps!

Magic Step 1 – Promote Your Passion

What interests you? Everyone has a hobby or something that gets them excited and jazzed when they think about it. There are literally millions of different ideas that you could choose from. Rest assured, if you are interested in it then lots of other people will be too. Worldwide, there are nearly 3 billion people online now and regardless of the topic you choose, many of those people will want to hear from you!

Whatever your niche the goal is to have fun with what you are doing. I teach and I know that if I am enjoying the lesson then the kids will be too! When you share your passion, success is much more likely to follow.

Magic Step 2 – Build a Website

Wealthy Affiliate make it ‘simples’ to build an amazing website. Within 30 seconds you can have a beautiful looking, revenue ready, web presence. In the past I have spent 100’s of hours trying to put up and optimize sites and to get something up and running really quickly makes life so much easier.

Your website is going to be the foundation of your business and it’s where you will be able to write about, review, and discuss everything related to your passion.

Magic Step 3 – Get People To Look At Your Site

This is probably the hardest part of all Internet Marketing. Without traffic your future business will be dead in the water.

Methods of generating visitors are changing all the time and the great thing about the lessons in Wealthy Affiliate is that you will be learning about the most current traffic techniques and how you can get loads of targeted customers to your website.

Remember: More People = More Opportunity = More Sales!

Magic Step 4 – Earn Money

Once you have got people to your website, you can promote quality products and services through special programs called “affiliate programs”. Effectively you act as a sales window for the product and the owner will give you a ‘finders fee’ or commission for every successful sale.

The choice of affiliate products is huge – there are literally millions of things that you can promote.

Wealthy Affiliate will teach you the proper techniques to build, and scale up the earnings from your site. There are many ways to make money from a website and the experience behind WAU will make sure that you have tall the information that you need to make the right choices for your business.

By now you’ve probably realized that the Wealthy Affiliate University is not a ‘Get Rich Quick’ scheme but rather the basis for building a proper, lasting business. The best way of finding out the truth of all this is to try it out for yourself. You can sign up for free without any commitment or having to put credit card details in!

A Fool And His Money

They always say a wise person learns from their mistakes – but perhaps a really wise person will learn from the mistakes of others. So, before we go any further there are some hard won “Truths” about Internet Marketing you need to take on board:

  • You won’t get rich by next Thursday – if someone tells you this, they’re lying.
  • You can’t double your money every week – Warren Buffett can’t, neither can you.
  • Nobody’s going to flood your PayPal account with money while you sleep.
  • The “Gurus” don’t care about you – they just want your money. Sorry, but it’s true.
  • There is no “Secret” formula that only a few people know, but is yours for a price!
  • People will lie to you to get you to send them money.
  • When honest people deal with dishonest people – the dishonest people always win.
  • No “Sponsor” is going to do the work for you – there is no “free lunch”!

If your in-box is anything like mine you have probably flooded with “Get Rich Quick” type schemes. Please delete them – they are seriously not worth your attention. Really, they are not!

Think about it. If a stranger came up to you in the street and said “Give me £57 and I will double your money in a week” would you do it? I doubt it, and yet this is exactly what people do everyday on the Internet. No wonder the Internet is seen as a glorified ATM machine by some!

And I was guilty of the same mistake too! There was a part of my life where I desperately needed to make some extra money, and building an Internet business part-time seemed like the ideal way to do it. Probably safer than robbing a bank!

So I bought in to some of the quick, easy money, schemes. My credit card took a real hammering and someone else was getting access to their own ATM at my expense!

Fortunately, before this became terminal I got myself a real life education. I was able to see the error of my ways and start again on a path that stood a real chance of making some money. It is also a path that has integrity, a quality that I had tried to maintain throughout my business life – for me “selling my soul to the devil” was not an option.

I would encourage anyone looking to make money online to begin by getting themselves educated. It will save you so much money and emotional energy in the long run and will start you on a path that will be successful. Remember there are no ‘free lunches’; just a lot of hard work and study. Treat your business seriously and professionally and it will reward you.

The Internet Wealth Myth

“Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration” – Evan Esar

I suspect you’ve arrived at this site because you want to change your current financial situation for the better. You’ve probably heard that the Internet is a good place to do that, after all, people are making millions online aren’t they? The truth is very different! 97% of people who try to make money online will fail! That statistic should be held firmly in your mind – you should set your path to join the 3% who succeed!

I love the quote from Evan Esar that headlines this page. It really sums up what you need to do to join that 3%. Ask yourself these questions:

Do you REALLY want to earn extra money? Not just as a pleasant daydream, but as something tangible that you can see, feel, taste, and touch? If you can honestly answer “Yes” then you have the aspiration.

Do you have a real need to make extra money? Again, this has to be more than a vague wish to have a few more zeros in your bank balance. It has to be a real emotional drive for you – something that will get you up early and keep you at it until late. Find your motivation and then make it as though your very life depends on your success! When you can capture that feeling you have your ‘desperation’.

Are you prepared to really work at a plan to breathe life into your new business? Nothing will happen until you take action. Unless you are prepared to put in the effort then you are destined to fail. The Chinese term “Kung Fu” does not necessarily have any thing to do with martial arts – it simply means an excellence that has been gained through time and personal effort. If you can answer “Yes” to giving that effort then that is the perspiration.

These are the three qualities that you need to bring to the process!

Fortunately, the inspiration has been provided by others! All you have to do is follow the plan. If you follow the system and do the work then your eventual success is as “guaranteed” as anything can be. You will get the results you seek. If you deviate from the plan you will waste both money and time!

This site is about the education you need to make it online. In particular it promotes the training and resources available at the Wealthy Affiliate University. This is both a center of online education and a community of brilliant people who are all at various stages in their own journeys. Many of them are very successful indeed – the key to their  success is that they have worked the plan, learned from mistakes, and come up with a formula that generates a pretty good income. The great news is that we don’t have to re-invent the wheel – the hard work has all been done for us.

The affiliate business  model is a real gift to anyone struggling with their current financial situation. I also believe it to be an honest and fair way to build income – providing certain rules are followed! It certainly isn’t the only way you can make money online but I can say with certainty that it does work. It may not even be the quickest way but it does reward those who are prepared to work and follow the system – to make that leap of faith.

Rome wasn’t built in a day though, so you are going to have to give this time to build up. The amount of time it takes will depend on how much time and effort you can devote to the plan but typically you should start to see results within 3 months. Ask yourself, if in 90 days time you had an extra 1500 dollars/pounds/euros coming in monthly, would that help you?

This is a time of great financial adversity – as we edge into 2016 the financial markets are once again taking a massive hit. The Chinese character for adversity also implies opportunity! You really can reverse the effects of any forthcoming ‘crash’ and continue to provide for your family and love ones.

If you want to find out how to make money online then you must get yourself an education! Visit the Wealthy Affiliate University completely risk free and begin your journey to Internet Marketing success.

Panasonic DMC-TS6

The Panasonic’s photos are almost as good as the Olympus’s. While the results typically aren’t quite as sharp, the Panasonic’s brains tend to make better decisions when subjects are backlit or when the lights get low. This is important because you likely don’t want to fumble with settings while you’re out on your adventures; you want to trust that the auto mode will pick the right settings. The Panasonic does well on this task. That said, the Olympus has a faster focusing system and takes better-quality photos overall, with less image noise in dim light thanks to a fast lens.

In its default Standard color mode, colors generally appear a bit more realistic (though more muted); if you prefer the more saturated, vibrant look that the Olympus produces, however, you can change the Panasonic to its Happy color profile, and the photos will pop just like those of the Olympus. The Panasonic’s flash works much, much better than the Olympus’s, and it’s smarter about when it engages.

Olympus TG-4

Your photos are ready to go straight from the camera, and they will look fantastic when you post them on Facebook. You can see comparison images between last year’s TG-3 and our alternative pick at the time

But easy, good-looking photos are only the beginning. The TG-4 has a 16-megapixel, 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor. That’s a pretty standard sensor for compact cameras, so the resulting photos won’t blow your mind, but they will certainly be up to snuff and on a par with images from other modern point-and-shoots. Thanks to the camera’s 16 megapixels, you’ll have plenty of room to crop if you’re looking to create a Facebook photo or a 3-by-5 print. The TG-4 also has an optically stabilized (which not every camera has) 4x-zoom, 4.5-to-18.0-mm lens (35 mm equivalent: 25 to 100 mm). That means its field of view goes a bit wider than that of most tough compact cameras, so it’s fantastic for capturing broad, sweeping landscapes and getting a lot of scenery into a single image.

Career Evolution – Chris Pratt

***SUNDAY CALENDAR SNEAKS FOR APRIL 27, 2014. ***DO NOT USE PRIOR TO PUBLICATION*** BEVERLY HILLS, CA – MARCH 27, 2014 – Actor Chris Pratt photographed at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills hotel, Thursday, March 27, 2014. Pratt plays a charming trouble-maker in Marvel’s new space comedy “Guardians of the Galaxy.” (Ricardo DeAratanha/Los Angeles Times).

He’s the most in demand actor on the face of the planet, not to mention one of the coolest and genuinely nicest guys you could meet (according to anyone who’s ever met him – so how did he go from second string supporting to leading man so quickly?

Find out below as Film Review UK charts the rise of Hollywood’s ‘Golden Boy’.

The Early Years – One Man and a Van

Chris Pratt seems like the one of the most chilled out guys in Hollywood – not surprising considering how his career started.

The career of this comic genius began in 2000 when Pratt, living out of a van in Hawaii and waiting tables to earn enough money to eat, landed his first paid role in the straight-to-DVD horror film, Cursed Part 3.

Directed by Rae Dawn Chong, Pratt was paid just $700 for the short film, but at the time, having been living out of his van for the past couple of years, saw it as winning the lottery, as he was now a fully-fledged paid actor.

Of course his situation didn’t seem to bother the young actor and during recent interviews, Pratt has often referred to that period of his life in Hawaii as one of the best.

“It’s a pretty awesome place to be homeless. We just drank and smoked weed and worked minimal hours, just enough to cover gas, food, and fishing supplies.”

Regardless, Chris Pratt was now a paid actor and ceased the opportunity with both hands.

Starting Off Small – A TV Regular

For anyone that’s seen Chris Pratt on screen, there’s definitely something special about the actor and his ability to shine on camera, whether it be a starring film role or a supporting role on the small screen.

So it’s no surprise that once wrapping in his first acting project, it wasn’t long until he was right back in front of he camera – this time with a regular gig on a new TV drama.

In 2002, Pratt landed the role of Bright Abbot on the family drama, Everwood, alongside Treat Williams, Gregory Smith and Emily VanCamp, who played his on screen sister.

The show ran for four successful seasons, becoming a favourite for Warner Bros. defunct network The WB (now The CW) and picking up several nominations during its reign, including two Ememy nominations.

Pratt certainly proved his worth on the show, becoming a favourite for many of the shows fans – eventually though the show was cancelled after seeing ratings fall in its fourth season.

Getting Noticed – Comedy Timing

After the cancellation of Everwood, and having starred in several low budget straight-to-DVD films, Pratt found himself a recurring guest spot on the hit TV drama, The O.C., playing Che Cook, an activist-stoner who befriends Rachel Bilson’s character Summer Roberts when she attends Brown University in the shows fourth season.
