    The digital world is evolving and the trends are changing in real world, making the world faster than ever before and technology more stable. Mobile is all about today’s world which took birth with the invention of first pager in 1956. The world started getting mobile and the launch of first commercial mobile phone by NTT in Japan was the next step to stabilize this mobility.

    The innovation in this mobility with SMS happened to be originated in Europe in 1985. SMS was a boom in the later part of 1900s and early 2000s, and still it’s the top cellular activity. Now, there’re above 4 billion mobile phone subscribers, with 74% of them using SMS of which 94% of SMSs are read. Just in UK 1.4 billion text messages now being sent every week.

    This is just about mobile phones and SMS, innovations like iPhone, Blackberry, Android and mobile-internet integration are constanly opening the new horizons of excellence for mobile marketing. Web marketing is one of the most cost effective marketing methods with maximum outreach. Since there’re more mobile phone subscribers than that of internet users, so mobile opens broad ways for marketing from small and medium to large businesses.

    Mobile-web integrated marketed is still in the process of development, reason being the lack of awareness among most of mobile phone subscribers, i.e. there’re about 10 million users worldwide using GPRS services that makes only about 0.25% of the total subscribers. But, this low percentage doesn’t mean that mobile marketing is not growing. There’re various alternative methods within mobile marketing including SMS Marketing, Ingame Mobile Marketing, Location Based Services etc.

    Ingame Mobile Marketing is the fastly growing area and the future of mobile marketing. The reason is that more than 90% of mobile phone subscribers play mobile games. From simple interactive real-time 3D games to massive multi-player and social networking games, mobile gaming is everywhere. This trend is accelerating the growth of mobile 2.0 on one hand and hence the mobile development on other.

    Mobile development being the next big thing is now the focus of small, medium and large business, and hence it’s becoming a competitive industry. The cometition is becoming tougher as the industry leaders Nokia and Google have moved to opensource, and this situation is critical for ISVs. ZDNet also reports that, it’ll not be the great UI as only challenge instead, things that matter more are ideas and methodologies. Though ISV’s are more under pressure, but companies will have equal pressure and will have to face almost same challenges. It’ll be the race of collective innovation [what I can term it as] or Product Innovation [combination of innovation in methodologies, design, productivity etc] so, innovation in over all performance will win!

    If you are trying to create a steady flow of leads into your home business then you need to put the old lead generation methods on the backburner and look at embracing new attraction marketing techniques into your promotions.

    In this article, we will highlight several internet network marketing tips you can implement to start drawing prospects into your business funnel. The truth is, old school methods may have once worked and worked well but today speed is everything and it’s no longer satisfactory working with one or two prospects at the one time.

    Prospecting online means you could literally work with dozens of people at the same time but without having to meet them face to face. The internet has allowed people to be able to educate and train people en masse and better still, from all parts of the world. As opposed to physically prospecting people, there are no restrictions to how far and wide you can place your marketing messages.

    Tips For Internet Network Marketers

    Here are several ways to attract people into your sales funnel. By using these methods, a lead trickle can turn into a torrent if only you will apply them.

    Let’s take a look at the attraction marketing process and a better way to find interested prospects.

    1. You create web properties. This is be in the form of a website, blog or web 2 sites. We recommend starting with a blog.

    2. You put content on your site related to your niche. Whether it’s health or technology related, the content needs to educate your readers rather than sell.

    3. Once your site is up you then start promoting. Write articles and submit them to article directories, bookmark your pages, submit your RSS feeds, place comments on authority blogs related to your niche.

    4. Create a web 2 campaign using sites such as Squidoo, Hub Pages, Wetpaint, Ning and Multiply linking them back to your main site. Remember, the information you place on these sites should be of an educational nature and not hard sell.

    5. You then promote your web 2 sites by bookmarking and submitting RSS feeds.

    The difference here is you are creating your web 2 properties based around specific keywords so you’re actually targeting your audience. In other words, you’re placing your message in front of people who are actually looking for it and ready to receive it.

    As far as internet network marketing tips go, this is the basic outline of the attraction marketing process and unless you’re using it then you will be left at the starting blocks as we head into a new era of network marketing promotions.

    For the past year I’ve been compiling a list of model train stores for my model railroading website. These shops all look like a lot of fun to visit, but what are the most popular? Here is a list for the states of Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey.

    The most popular model railroading shops (based on online chatter) in Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey are:

    10. Ridgefield Hobby in Ridgefield, New Jersey

    9. Maplewood Hobby in Maplewood, New Jersey

    8. M. B. Klein Model Train Stuff in Cockeysville, Maryland

    7. Tony’s Train Town in Cedar Grove, New Jersey

    6. MTH Electric Trains in Columbia, Maryland

    5. Hobbymasters in Red Bank, New Jersey

    4. The Model Railroad Shop in Piscataway, New Jersey

    3. The Train Station in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey

    2. Toy Train Emporium in Cherry Hill, New Jersey

    …and the most popular shop for model trains in Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey is…

    1. The Hobby Shop in Aberdeen, New Jersey

    Hobby shops not quite making my top 10 were Just Trains in Newark, Delaware; Millsboro Hobbies in Millsboro, Delaware; Seaside Hobbies in Ocean View, Delaware; Engine House Hobbies in Gaithersburg, Maryland; G Scale Train Station in Waldorf, Maryland; Hobby Works in Rockville, Laurel, and Bel Air, Maryland; The Train Room in Hagerstown, Maryland; Atlantic Rails in Folsom, New Jersey; Genes Train Stop in Kearny, New Jersey; Island Trains in Middletown, New Jersey; Pastime Hobbies and Miniatures in Bayonne, New Jersey; Z and Z Hobbies in Mercerville, New Jersey; Zeppelin Hobbies and Raceway in Wayne, New Jersey.

    So, there are lots of great model railroading shops from all over Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey but clearly New Jersey dominated the list with eigth in the top ten. Maryland had two inthe ten, and Just Trains in Delaware just missed out. Note that this list was for the train stores more than their online web stores. If this list were for online stores www.modeltrainstuff.com, the website of M. B. Klein Model Train Stuff, would probably have won.

    When in Delaware, Maryland, or New Jersey be sure to visit some of the excellent railroading museums including Harrington Museum and Railroad Museum in Harrington, Delaware; Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland; Brunswick Railroad Museum in Brunswick, Maryland; Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum in Hagerstown, Maryland; Huntington Railroad Museum in Bowie, Maryland; New Jersey Museum of Transportation in Wall, New Jersey; Whippany Railway Museum in Whippany, New Jersey; and South Jersey Railroad Museum in Tuckahoe, New Jersey.

    I compiled this list by searching for the hobby shops listed on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online. I further screened this list to include only pages that mentioned model railroading.

    Lifestyle Marketing is a genius concept. Top internet marketers are using this technique to sell their opportunities. The reason for this is because the FTC and other institutions have been really cracking down on all these websites that use over inflated income claims and statements as a form of attracting prospects into their business. These income claims are usually false and all they do is clutter the internet with more junk and garbage.

    But what is lifestyle marketing? and what can it do for your online business?

    Lifestyle Marketing simply put is, you marketing your business opportunity in such a manner that it allows your prospect visualize the lifestyle they could possibly have or afford if they joined your opportunity rather than how much money they can put in their bank account.

    For example, you can set up a website and instead of putting images of money and claiming to make $5,000 in 24 hrs (which is ridiculous) you would place images of you spending time with your wife/husband at the beach, with your lap top sipping on a pia colada on a Wednesday afternoon. See those images have a much more powerful effect on your prospect’s mind because it facilitates your prospect to visualize what is possible.

    People join an opportunity not because of how much money they are going to make, rather they join because of the possibilities and opportunities it can give them to live the life they always dreamed of, whether it be spending more times with a husband, wife, children, friends or just doing what they love, golf, flying, sailing, etc.

    Like the CEO of CarbonCopyPro Jay Kubassek says, “market from the heart and the riches will follow, including money”. This statement could not be any more true. And that’s what lifestyle marketing allows YOU to do. It allows you to market who you REALLY are and market your core values and principles.

    By marketing your core values and principles you will be attracting people into your business that share the same wants, needs, and most importantly your values. You will build a much stronger team, your duplication rate will be much higher which means your team members will be making more money and in essence your business will explode.

    Market to what’s possible, not how much money someone can make. Money is just an instrument that you will use to do the things you’ve always wanted, but the true desire is to live the lifestyle of your dreams, THAT’S what you market.

    Stay true to yourself and who you are, and you’ll see an endless stream of prospect just like you wanting to join your business. If you’re not where you want to be, it’s OK. Work on yourself to become the leader you want to become , but your essence, your core values will never change.

    Affiliate marketing is a symbiotic internet based business relationship between a merchant web owner and an affiliate. The affiliate, or affiliate marketing associate attracts business to the merchant web owners site by posting links from their web pages to the merchant site. Any business that is generated through the affiliate marketing site is then rewarded with the merchant web owner paying commission to the affiliate for referred business through their personal set up of affiliate web marketing.

    Once the traffic has been directed to the merchant web owners site, the responsibility of luring the business in is no longer in the hands of the affiliate marketing associate, but in the hands of the web site owner. But the affiliate will be compensated for the referral of business by way of whatever is agreed upon prior to setting up their affiliate web marketing relationship.

    If you owned a website you could turn it into an affiliate marketing site just by back linking to various affiliate web sites and having them link to your site in return. Back linking creates a more optimal chance of your site being spotted by search engines and also creates the impression that your website is well renowned and trusted as an affiliate marketing support site. By offering a percentage of whatever profits you make from your affiliates referrals, they can benefit from your product without having to put in any effort, and you can benefit from the increase in traffic and potential buyers directed to you from them.

    By constructing solid relationships with decent, trustworthy and business minded affiliate marketing associates, you could easily set yourself up with a thriving business brought in by affiliate marketing for a number of different niche markets.

    There are three ways in which affiliate web marketing can occur:

    1.Pay per click
    2.Pay per sale
    3.Pay per lead

    By opting for pay per click affiliate marketing business, you would pay your affiliate a pre-arranged amount every time a person clicks on your product through the affiliates website. Pay per sale business would present the affiliate with a fixed amount or a percentage of the total sale price for every item bought that was directed to you through your affiliates marketing website. Pay per lead would be a percentage paid to your affiliate for every potential customer that they brought to your website for future business.

    Affiliate web marketing has a structure of revenue sharing that can be extremely beneficial for the web owner and the affiliate, especially if the product or service you are promoting is in demand. Once the structure is in place, there is a minimal amount of work that needs to be implemented to maintain it. Changing your website into an affiliate marketing site will make it work for you, allowing you to generate infinite amounts of income from your daily flow of traffic into and out of your site.
