Have a Mailing List of Your Own to Make Money Online by Terry Shadwell  
No matter what type of email you send out, youll need a mailing list. The basic way to build a mailing list is by capturing name and email address information for everyone who buys or shows interest in your product.

An email list that YOU COLLECT YOURSELF is worth its weight in gold and will help you to make money online. This can be accomplished by using a list manager on your site. List managers also provide the HTML coding for the form on the Gateway pages. A list manager collects the email addresses that are gathered with the form. Thus, your email list is collected. This might take some time so there are methods to use until you get your own email list built Louis Vuitton.

One way to build a mailing list is to do ad swaps with other list owners. The way this works is, you (as company A) have an email list that you send newsletters to and another list owner (company B) has a list they send newsletters to. Company A and Company B place ads on one anothers mailing lists. Each of you is promoting the others list post by haiyan902.  

You can rent or buy targeted email lists. A lot of people that make money online buy their lists. The list you develop using your own customers names is called your house list. Of course, when youre first starting out, your house list is likely to be skimpy. To augment it, one way to go is rent or buy a mailing list. There are two ways to buy or rent a mailing listapproaching the company you want to rent from directly or using a list broker.

Are You Doing Work That Is Equal to Your Dollar Value Per Hour by Pamelina Siow  
Just recently, I went to Bali and met a very interesting man. He is Arthur Carmazzi. This man opened my eyes to the power of outsourcing.

He services the world in terms of corporate training, online training material and videos. He owns 4 to 5 websites and lives in Bali. He contracts a team of 8 Balinese employees whom he pays $200 each a month.

Imagine just how much he is profiting just from the currency conversion? He earns in global currency while he pays $200 x 8 = $1,600 per month Louis Vuitton outlet. And his websites will blow you away.

Meeting him made me realize the importance of outsourcing correctly. I have observed that there are businessmen who insist on managing every detail of their online business. They wind up doing trivial work when they should have been concentrating on the more important aspect of their business, generating sales post by haiyan902.

In this article, I will address two questions:

1) What to outsource?

When deciding on what to outsource, there is a need to consider opportunity costs in terms of value and mental benefits. If you could spend 1 hour, contacting a prospect and creating a potential sale versus updating a website (when it can be outsourced to a website designer cheaply). It becomes easy as decide.

These are the questions you should ask yourself before attempting any work:

* Can I outsource this to someone else who can do a better job and at a lower cost?

* Are there other activities more worthy of my creativity and attention?

* Can I take this time off to chill and refresh myself for bigger ideas, rather than completing an administrative task?

If you said Yes to even one of the above questions, then you should think about outsourcing. Outsourcing will enable you to focus more on bringing in more value to your company and smartly manage the more important things.

2) How to outsource?

Now, if you have decided to outsource your work. What are the steps to outsource it?

* Write down your expected results of the task

* Write down the timeline, job description and expected quality of the task

* Go to or to find a suitable virtual assistant or hire an expert in the field who you trust

* Email them your results, timeline, job description and expected quality of the task

* If possible, show them a template before starting

* Ask them if they have any additional questions. (As in some countries, they are uncomfortable to ask any questions, double check before proceeding)

* Set milestones and check on the progress of the work

After observing the successful and not so successful people, I realize that successful people do the RIGHT THINGS FIRST. Everyone has 24 hours and how you manage your time determines how successful you are.

I wish you luck and hope that you can start outsourcing to allow you to bring more value to your company. Successful business people get the time to enjoy their good fortune because they choose to outsource correctly what isn't worth their dollar value per hour.

Whats Love Got To Do With It Commentary on the state of the Music Industry Everywhere I go there seems to be some sophisticated discussion or debate about whats wrong with the music industry and what needs to be done to fix it. The conversation takes place in offices amongprofessionals who have been around long enough to know thatthings are indeed different, and annindustry conferences amongmusic artists who revel in new found optimism that the changeswill level the playing field and make economic opportunitiesmore accessible to them. As tempting as it may be, I am not enamored with or preoccupied bythe current problems that face the music industry. Issues such asdeclining record sales; the consolidation of radio stations; theconstant merging of record labels; the lack of longevity in thecareers of music artists; the boom in retail sales of used CDs;or any myriad of issues regarding the illegal downloading of musicon the Internet. Why? Because while so many inthe music industry (professionals and artists alike) spend countlesshours lamenting over things that they cant control, I only focus onthe things that are within my control; like my professionalchoices, income generating activities, and building valuedrelationships. Most importantly my business model is based on my passions because while I know that the economy will always fluctuate up or down, and industry trends will turn hot and cold in the blink of an eye, my love for what I do is a constantand remains unaffected.In 1999 I had the pleasure of meeting and briefly talking toBarry White at a party for the release of Love Unlimited, hissemi-autobiographical book on his adventures in life, love and themusic industry. When he asked me what I did for a living, I toldhim I was a music business consultant Louis Vuitton outlet. Barry, whowas much darker in person than he is on television and in his videos, flashed some of the whitest teeth you could ever imagine and said, I dont know what that is, but as long as you believe in what youdo, thats all that counts.I went on to enthusiastically explain to him what I did as a music business consultant, asking him for advice and hogging up his limited time in the process. He stopped me before I could really divedeep into it and interjected in his sincere, rich baritone voice, the advice that I still follow to this very day, Constantly re-commit yourself to what you do and the money will followWe all need to re-commit from time to time. We all lose sight of what we actually do for a living and the reasons why we do it, but the long roots of true passion run deepand even when the tree is cutdown by unfair business practices, a gluttony of superficial encounters, busted deals, a never ending parade of fakes and flakes, and rampant un-professionalism that plagues the industry, youendure because you know that at the end of the day you are truly passionate about what you do and it all becomes a mere occupational hazard that you learn how to deal with.While many aspiring industry professionals have fashionably set their sights on the greener pastures of the music business, prostituting their values for the sake and pursuit of money, the vast majoritywill not obtain the riches they so desperately seek, nor will they be in it for the long haul post by haiyan902. Why? Because they lack vision, focus, commitment, and above all else, passion for what they do whichbrings us to the question: whats love got to do with it? When it comes to art, you would think everything, but the sad truthis that there are many in the music industry that are morepassionate about self-expression and self-serving interests, thanthey are about music as an art form (unless, of course, the musicwe are speaking of is their own).But you dont have to be passionate about music to be in the music industry, you just need to be passionate about your motivations and respect the process that allows you to make your money. Show me an act or professional who has failed, and I will show you how that statement applies.And what about all the changes that people are talking about soadamantly? History shows that this industry is always changing.The industry never stops changing; technologically; structurally; logistically; and creatively. Adaptability is a requirement of success in every industry because change, to an entrepreneur, is readily accepted, embraced and capitalized upon.So for those who are distracted by the changes that are takingplace in the industry, my free, but valuable advice to all of you is to focus on what you love to do. Your passion is the intangible thatwill increase the value of your product or service. Your businessneeds and opportunities will announce themselves at the appropriate time. Until then, rekindle your love affair with your business or art, because in the end, love has everything to dowith the reason you do it in the first place.

It Takes an Iron Resolve to Make an Independent Film Production Happen Commitment is an independent filmmakers most valuable resource. Without a lot of money to grease the wheels of production, a low budget film producer must rely on creativity and determination to get their films made. If a person wants to get their film made badly enough, there is not much in this world that can stop it from happening. Making a film on your own with your own money is a very daunting task. It can also be very rewarding. When you decide to take on the awesome responsibility of writing, directing, and producing your own independent film, you better know what you are getting into beforehand. Once you set the ball in motion, there is no going back. You either succeed and your film makes to the film festival circuit (which is a major accomplishment in and of itself), or you crash and burn halfway through the film production process and your film vision never sees the light of day. The next time you watch a movie I suggest that you pay particular attention to the credits at the end of the film Louis Vuitton handbags. Take a look at how many names scroll across the screen and this will give you an idea of how much work goes into the making of a motion picture. Then take away all of the names on the screen and picture your name in front of every credit for every job and this will give you an idea of much work YOU will have to do to make your own movie.When I first graduated from film school I hit the ground running. I landed a decent job as the Director and Animator on an independent film that had Pat Boones name attached to it. I was to hired to film clay animation stories about The Bible. I worked on that job for about four months and was paid fairly well for my efforts. I decided that the best thing I could do with the money I saved was to make another film. I would take the knowledge and money I gained and use it for my own benefit. I decided to make my own movie with the idea in mind that I would enter it in on the film festival circuit and hopefully win some awards post by haiyan902. If that happened it would almost certainly be a boost for my fledgling film career. I wrote a script for a short film that involved a combination of clay animation and live action, and I was ready to make a film. My plan was to use all of my knowledge and talent and do almost all the work. For the parts that I could not do myself I would hire friends and business associates at a substantially discounted rate. These people agreed to work for cheap in return for a little creative control, a credit for their demo reel, and possibly exposure if the film does well at any major film festivals. I only had to hire them for the filming of the live action scenes and for some of the post production work (like sound design, mixing, foley sound effects, etc). The animation I would do entirely on my own.I contacted a couple of friends of mine that managed camera and sound equipment rental houses. They set me up with a 16mm camera package and a DAT (digital audio tape) package to rent at discounted prices. I rented these packages on a weekend (to get the extra 2 days for free) and I started filming the live action part of my film right away. I worked extremely hard that first weekend. I basically filmed most of the time with only about two to three hours of sleep each day. When I was not filming/acting/directing, I was setting up lights, moving furniture, making meals for everyone, setting up props, distributing and apply makeup, rehearsing with actors, fixing costumes, and performing script rewrites on the set, to name only a few things. By the time Monday morning rolled around, I was mentally and physically exhausted, but I still had to bring back the camera and sound equipment packages by 10:00 am or I would be charged for another day of rental. You do not have that luxury to just sleep in and not worry about it when you are making an independent film on a shoestring budget. There is no rest for the weary when you are making your own movie. Time is money, and you do not have a lot of either one of these resources. I returned the camera and sound equipment packages just in time on Monday morning. Then I went straight to the film lab and dropped off my film. I then made an appointment for the following week (the soonest date I could get) to see my dailies (developed film), and counted the days until the day of my appointment arrived.I arrived at the film lab a half hour early for my appointment to see my dailies. As I sat in the lobby waiting for my big moment, I began to get very nervous. Unnerving thoughts began to fill my head. What if one of the rolls of film somehow got damaged in the lab? Maybe the machine that develops the film broke when my film was running through it and all of my film rolls are scratched? What if the cameraman I hired was not as good as his demo reel implied and all my rolls are under or over exposed? What if the guy who took my film at the front desk of the film lab is a disgruntled filmmaker who only took that job so he can ruin other peoples film when they hand it over to him? What if there was a mishap in the film vault involving fire sprinklers and all my rolls of film got ruined? Of course, all of these are irrational thoughts, but nonetheless they are the kind of thoughts that go through the mind of an independent filmmaker as they are quietly waiting in the lobby of a film lab facility prior to their appointment to see the fruits of their efforts. As it turned out, everything was fine. My dailies looked great and that only inspired me to keep the ball rolling with my film project. I put every ounce of effort that my body and soul possessed into that project, and it paid off. That film (Mike And The Magic Lamp) won several awards at several film contests that year (1998) including a Silver Award at the Houston Worldfest in the same category that had seen past winners with such names as Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, and Quentin Tarantino. It was a perfect springboard for my film career. I have made several films since then and all of them have led to bigger and better projects. My latest film is a ninety minute science fiction love story. I already have a couple of distribution offers for this film, and I have yet to enter it in a single film festival. I should be able to make a very decent profit if it does well on the film festival circuit, and I owe it all to my iron resolve to make my film career dream a reality. Where my budget was lacking, my determination picked up the slack. Copyright 2006. Michael P. Connelly

Walk The Line (DVD) Review by Britt Gillette -  
Nominated for five Academy Awards, and winner of the Oscar for Best Actress (Reese Witherspoon), Walk The Line chronicles the life and times of legendary country music star Johnny Cash with an intense, and sometimes dark, intimacy. Following on the heels of the previous years Oscar Award-winning picture Ray, based on the life of Ray Charles, I entered the theater under the mistaken impression that Walk The Line would be a cookie-cutter attempt to capitalize on the various themes of that pictures commercial success. But although the dramatic personal struggle with drug addiction is prevalent in both films, Walk The Line was more than able to stand on its own as a powerful and impressionable big screen biography. And just like the aforementioned film, you leave Walk The Line with a renewed interest in the music of Johnny Cash and a deep personal attachment to the lives of Cash and his likeable wife, June Carter.

Directed by James Mangold, the talent behind such notable films as Kate & Leopold (2001) and Identity (2003), Walk The Line begins in the rough and tumble world of Depression-Era Arkansas where a young Johnny Cash (Joaquin Phoenix) tends to the family cotton farm with his parents and older brother. Early on, a family tragedy strains the relationship between Cash and his father, providing a glimpse into the epic moment that would shape his life forever. Soon after, the film jumps to the early 1950s where Cash perfects his guitar talents while stationed overseas in the Air Force. His marriage to high school classmate Vivian Liberto lands the two in Memphis where Johnny supports the family as an appliance salesman while pursuing his musical interests on the side. Here, Cash founds The Tennessee Two with bassist Marshall Grant (Larry Bagby) and guitarist Luther Perkins (Dan John Miller), and the trio plays its way to a music deal with local label Sun Records.

As part of a promotional campaign, Cash is put on tour with other rockabilly newcomers Elvis Presley (Tyler Hilton), Jerry Lee Lewis (Waylon Payne), and Carl Perkins (Johnny Holiday). But during his tour with the quartet, the life of Johnny Cash takes numerous turns. He meets the affable June Carter (Reese Witherspoon), begins an addiction to amphetamines and alcohol, and watches his marriage to Vivian deteriorate under the strain of his constant absence. All three would come to define the next fifteen years of Cashs life as he struggled to triumph over his personal demons. Despite his all-encompassing drug addiction, Cash nevertheless manages to crank out hits, but his personal life hits rock bottom following bouts with divorce, loneliness, depression, and his continued drug addiction. When Cash reunites with June Carter in a musical collaboration, the magical bond between the two is amplified. But Johnnys addiction threatens to ruin everything theyve built together.

The most impressive aspect of Walk The Line, aside from the storyline itself, is the performance of Witherspoon and her counterpart Phoenix. Amazingly, both provide their own voiceovers, and for the casual listener, very little difference can be detected between the Hollywood talents and the real life country music legends they impersonate. Much was made of the performance of Joaquin Phoenix in the days leading up to the films release, but I came away more impressed by Witherspoon. Apparently, so did the Academy because they awarded her their highest honor for the role Louis Vuitton Canada. What stood out the most was the actresss down-to-earth smile and charismatic mannerisms. She created a character with ample assertiveness, yet one that burst at the seams with an infectious optimism and love for life. As such, the audience cant help but fall in love with June Carter. In addition, Witherspoon displays an amazing singing voice that accurately captures the distinct and unique aspects of June Carters talent post by haiyan902. Overall, Walk The Line is a fine film, and a fitting remembrance to the career and life of country musics greatest icon, Johnny Cash.
