Industrial Homicide and the New Era Of Web 2.0

The industrial era killed our ability to think in an untethered way. The drive-downtown-and-crank-my-widget-from-eight-til-five turned the American worker into a higher form of cattle. We learned not to think "outside the stall."

But then a new era dawned... and then another.

First, the dawn of the internet. The Industrial Age has gave way to the Information Age. Almost anything is now possible. Because of the internet, one can now design and build income streams that allows him to live where he wants, work from his passion on his own terms - without sacrificing lifestyle. (Seventy percent of adults are online. Don't you think you can find your market somewhere in there?)

The second dawn was Web 2.0. The internet grew up. Broadband has become ubiquitous. And that has changed everything. In a Web 2.0 world things are different. Things are better.

No longer will a simple brochure website do the trick. Your customers want community. They want interaction with you and with each other. They don't buy from the person with the best sales pitch. They buy from the person they "know, like and trust." Web 2.0 demands it, commands it and makes it possible.

The person who will thrive in a Web 2.0 world will be the one who handles New Media well: blogging, podcasting, and videocasting.

The person who thrives in a Web 2.0 world will also be the one who works faster and produces more through leveraging the internet's power to build his low-cost, speedy (often multi-national) team. In a Web 2.0 world, participants include cost effective, talented virtual assistants from around the world. This is unprecedented. And when you know how to access and leverage their talents, it means a quicker launch of your ideas and thousands of dollars toward your bottom line.

This group will be focused on tying together all you are learning about coaching, speaking and other untethered options and "putting it all together" into one internet based "hub" that you can operate from anywhere.

We will focus on building community around your brand through New Media channels and accessing the power of Web 2.0 to keep your content flowing and growing for maximum profit

Does anyone have examples of success here?  Is anyone using an "untethered" form in income to allow them to help the world in some way that they otherwise could not?

Working on a short book, and looking for examples.  Thanks! Jason

Cyndi, There is a wordpress group there that is a good place for questions such as "how do I put a shopping cart on my wordpress site".  I know of at least one friend who uses a free one successfully, but can't remember the name.

Before you choose that please read this.

I am an affiliate for them but this link will not be tagged for my affiliate link.  There are many challenges with Wordpress and with any open source platform.  "Simple" is not one of them.  

One of the big things that get missed with setting up a Wordpress website is how you actually make a keyword content plan and sitemap.  That has do be planned out for at least the core content of your website before you build any pages.

Because wordpress is opensource and "easy" to use you can start throwing up pages in a hurry.  And then you wonder why you are not getting traffic.  There is a very precise way that the site needs to be build in order to make sure you will maximize your traffic.

Wordpress does not teach that.  A single on page SEO factors are only one of the key factors in having a website that will presell your monetization and make sure you are getting targetted traffic.

Please go to this link and read up on SBI.  If what you are looking for is a web business and you want someone to take care of the technical pieces of that so you can focus on growing your business then SBI is what you need.

Check it out and let me know if you have questions.  I have multiple SBI sites and they are all profitable sites.  Now I am not retiring next month but I have a great foundation going and I don't have to worry about the technical issues that you have with a Wordpress site.  

Which btw I manage or run multiple wordpress sites as well.  I have seen the good, bad and the ugly of wordpress.

I'll echo Jeff's suggestions.

My biggest reasons for WordPress (.ORG) is that even if they go under at some point in time in the future, I still have the free software on my host's servers. With a hosted solution that is managed by someone else, if something goes south on their end, I end up being stuck.

WordPress is also very easy to find competent programmers for. I ran into a jam not being able to find a specific plugin that I wanted, and it was very easy to find a programmer to do the necessary code for me. That is the benefit of an open-source community. I am not familiar with weebly or wix, but I doubt they have the same level of flexibility.

Thanks for asking.

There are a TON of benefits of using WordPress.org for your website.  The include the following:

  • it very Google Friendly
  • easy Social Media integration
  • simple to use
  • there are a lot of developers that can help you get unstuck, if you get in a pinch
  • YOU own your content (I'm not sure how Weebly and Wix handle your content)
  • YOU don't rent from them (WordPress is installed on your hosting plan, which means you can easily move it to another host if you'd like)
  • You might not be able to easily move away from Weebly/Wix
  • incredible flexibility for any industry.  I'm currently working on websites for a manufacturing company, church, speaker, author, membership site, internet marketer, and videographer.
  • it's easy to create blogs & pages
  • simple to add audio, video and pictures

I could keep going....WordPress.org is incredibly flexible and robust.  I would HIGHLY recommend going with WordPress.

Comment by Jason V on February 15, 2012 at 2:06pm

Cyndi, which tests are you referring to?  Personality profiles of some sort?

Cyndi,  Congrats on getting things going. Yes,  I thin you should use the links since they are free and yes, I think you should sign up as an affiliate if at all possible.  Thanks for the question.
