How To Brand Yourself On A Shoestring Budget
(c) by John Colanzi

Have you spent hours on end trying your best to make money on the internet and ended up empty handed? Trust me you're not alone.

I've been there myself.

After running into a brick wall for years, I've finally found what works for me.

If I were starting today and could choose one method to promote my business and to brand myself, it would be writing and submitting articles.


** It's Free promotion

** It's extremely viral

** It brands you fast

** Most marketers won't do it

Your articles are actually more than just free promotion, they're free promotion on steroids.

Think about it?

What's the main feature of the average ezine? The featured article. Get featured in an ezine and you're the spotlight of that issue.

Get featured in multiple ezines every week and readers will be saying, I see this name everywhere.

You're branding yourself fast and it hasn't cost you a dime.

Once you start getting your name recognized, the articles will start taking on a life of their own. Have a few webmasters pick them up and you're name recognition (brand) keeps spreading.

It's truly amazing what article writing can do. After you've been doing it long enough, readers will get the feeling they know you.

There's not much chance of that happening from running an ad. An ad is just one of many and gives no clue as to who you are.

The fourth reason I gave for writing articles was, "Most marketers won't do it."

If you're serious about your business and branding yourself, there is one thing you should realize. You have to start thinking out of the box.

Become a contrarian. Learn what everybody is doing, and then start doing what they are not.

You're a unique individual and you don't have to follow the herd. Birds of a feather may flock together, but the brave eagle flies alone.

Get in the habit of writing and submitting articles and hopefully, the next article I read will be yours.

Wishing You Success,
John Colanzi

Feature Article: Create the Right Mindset to Succeed with a Money Making Home Business

Copyright © Alan Mater -

There are many reasons to start a money making home business. Some for the extra money, others for the freedom. While the reasons differ, there is one thing that seems to always be true.

You must have the right mindset. No matter what your intentions are for starting your own home online business, without the right mindset you're setting yourself up for failure. Harsh, but true.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (, over 50% of small businesses fail in the first year and 95% fail within the first
five years.

This is very sad. It has nothing to do with not having the right intentions. You can dream big and have realistic goals that you want to achieve, but there is an underlying factor involved, and it is the key to your success.

"Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right!" - Henry Ford

So many people go into business with the wrong mindset. Sometimes their goals are just plain unrealistic. For most though, they have a lot of doubt; they have a lot of fear of the unknown.

Fear is healthy, but it shouldn't stop you from accomplishing your goals. If you have the mindset that you want to succeed, then you will. If you have the mindset that you will fail, then you already have.

I started this website with a lot of unknowns, but that didn't stop me from accomplishing my goals. I take the doubt that I have and transform it into positive energy. I put that positive energy to good use. A positive mindset is a good mindset to have.

You can accomplish anything with a positive mindset. If you're looking to earn extra money from home by getting paid to take surveys, data entry jobs or start an online business, then what is stopping you? The only thing keeping you from your goals is yourself.

Do you have the right mindset?

When searching for a home business online opportunity or ideas to earn money with the internet, don't think that you can't do it or that you're not good enough. The truth is that ordinary people just like you are making a very nice income from the comfort of home.

The good news is that you can too. Just find the right making money online opportunity that will help you achieve your goals. With the right mindset, nothing can stop you!
