Panda Profits: What’s Different?

9042342_ml

Well, hopefully you know that 4 of us have started a new Paid To Click website named Panda Profits.  Bill, Janelle, Patrick and myself are in the process of raising our baby Panda to be able to take on the big world.

Panda Profits is in some ways a standard PTC.  If you go to the site you will see lots of familiar features on an Evolution script.

Where Panda Profits really shines is in the small ways that we hope will make a huge difference to our members and advertisers.

Panda Profits Members

Probably the first thing most members will notice at PP are the news of the day feature. Every weekday Patrick Griffin writes a news feature for the site.  Some of them deal with changes and features, some deal with other topics.  I’ll guarantee we are the only PTC to do this sort of thing.

Prompt Support.  One of the complaints that we have heard is that most PTCs answer support tickets slowly if at all.  All four of us answer tickets when we know the answer and see them hit the site.  So far no ticket has gone over about 10 hours and those were tickets that required a specific person to answer.

We have the most sophisticated anti-cheat software that we could find.  Our membership isn’t growing as fast as some because multiple accounts are just not tolerated, right from the start.  Not now, not ever.

All of us firmly believe that there can and will be a community that will build up around Panda Profits.  That an honestly run and administered PTC will not only survive but thrive in the long run.  That our members will respond to loyalty and honesty by hanging around.  It’s what we really want, and think our members want the same thing.

In the next installment I’ll talk specifically about what we do for the advertisers on Panda Profits.

Lookit Me Mom! I’m a Panda!

A look behind the curtain and the promise of more to come.

Panda Profits is Born

You may or may not know.  I am no longer employed by TimTech but the legacy is not finished.  Four of us that worked together at TImTech joined together and brought Panda Profits kicking and screaming into the world.

What is Panda Profits?

A Paid To Click site.  We all four believe that an honest and honestly run Paid To Click is a good way for us to carry on in the industry that we know and love.

Who is Panda Profits?

Bill Gorcsi, Janelle Pineau, Patrick Griffin and myself.  After working together in a team setting at TimTech there was no doubt that we all get along well and work well together. Perhaps more importantly, we are NOT afraid to speak our minds and have some pretty specific skills that translate very well to what we are doing.  Bill is a programmer and general genius in knowing how things on the internet REALLY work.  Janelle is pure hustle and a truly gifted customer support person and she knows EVERYBODY in the TE business.  Patrick is a professional writer who knows how to put the right words to the page in every circumstance.  I’m the numbers geek and am really good at seeing patterns (and catching cheetahs)

Why Panda Profits?

We really believe that the PTC world can support a viable community and we mean to provide the vehicle to do so.  Good manners and listening to our members is part and parcel of what we do.  We think we’ll be able to make a living some day, but we REALLY think we can have a positive impact in our market.

Where is Panda Profits?

I’m really glad you asked.  Actually, it’s linked all through this post, but the real live honest address is http://pandaprofits.com.  Come on by and check us out!

Notice how I did that?  I asked 4 of the essential questions to any good article:)  From time to time I will be discussing Panda Profits and how it’s working out for all the world to know.

Where were you on Dec. 1, 2013?

December 1, 2013

There are some days that just stick in your mind, right?

You know where you were and what you were doing.  Fortunately, December 1, 2013 isn’t one of those for me.  The only thing I know for absolutely certain that I did that day was log into Click Track Profit.

How do I know that?  I’m glad you asked.

When I logged into CTP this morning it showed 730 days in a row that I had logged in. For those of us who are mathematically challenged, that is two full years.  Means I started the streak on December 1.

The point of this column isn’t Yay Me.  It isn’t about the virtues of CTP, though I am incredibly fond of the program.  It’s all about grinding through and doing positive behavior EVERY SINGLE DAY.

I don’t know what I’ve done every one of the last 730 days.  I know I’ve had the flu a couple of times, I know I’ve had the normal life crisis, I know I’ve had some days that were less than wonderful.

I know I have taken two month long motorcycle trips, and several smaller ones.

But at least once every day, I have switched on my computer and logged into CTP in the course of doing my daily business, no exceptions.  Every day.

The moral of the story is easy.  Just do it.  Don’t say it, don’t pretend it, don’t intend it, JUST DO IT.

You truly will not believe the cumulative effect of doing essential tasks every day.  There is no possible way to minimize it, there is no limit to the top side of it.  Attend to your business every single day and I promise you that in 730 days you will be amazed at your progress.

I am.

Solidarite

Like everybody else with a blog I am writing today in solidarite with the residents of Paris and the people of France.  Je Suis Paris

I weep for your dead and wounded.

I weep for their families and friends.

I weep for the people of France and the fear and anger that they must endure.

I weep for us all.  For those that are hurt.  For those that are afraid.  For those that are angry.  For those innocents that will be caught up in the inevitable retaliation.  For their friends and families.  For the fear and anger that they must endure.  For the circle that must needs close at some point.  I weep for us all.

I weep for the magnitude, and what has changed.

And in the end, I do the only thing I am capable of.

I weep.

Seth Godin at 6000

I just tossed out a draft post that I have been hanging onto for quite some time.  I know.  I never throw anything out.  Why this one?  Because it was about the enormity of Seth Godin’s 5000th blog post.  Why did I toss it?

Today is the day that Seth Godin has published his 6000th blog post.  Read it right Here.  It’s unremarkable in it’s simplicity and candor.  In my opinion, Seth Godin is the best blogger on the internet.

The single most remarkable part of this post is the simple fact that he hasn’t missed a day in over 12 years.  Every day for that entire time he has published at least one blog post.  EVERY SINGLE DAY.  Not when he wanted to, not when he felt like it, not when the spirit moved him.  Every Single Day.

While he was doing this he also published 10 books, most of which came to be best sellers.  He does an active appearance schedule and at least a couple of TED talks per year.

How did he do it?  Why is he so special?  Last first.  He’s not special.  He committed to a course of action and has never backed off of it.  He decided that he could and would and never deviated.  Ever.

You see, the nugget here isn’t that Seth Godin is a great writer.  It isn’t that he has a huge following and is one of the most sought after marketing experts on the planet.  The nugget is that he STARTED and KEPT ON.

How much better off would you and I be had we committed to something a year ago and pursued it every single day for the last year?  It’s not too late.  Today is the day you will wish you had started whatever a year from now.

Just Do It and Keep on Doing It.

Of a pure personal nature, in the time that Seth published his last 1000 posts I have published almost 300.  I’m proud of that number, but I can’t help but think that I would have been way better situated if I had published over 700.

Game Changer

So.  TimTech has just launched a new product.  List Viral.

No, it’s not a mailer.  Not even close.  It is ‘build your list and make money from it’. Dead simple, it is a real look at what we do.  Lots of small streams of income that make big streams of income.

Are you having trouble making $2.47 per day?  24.73?  This will help, and it is not just a guide on how to, it is a done deal.  You pick your category and an area that you want to promote and the TimTech robots swing into action and give you a usable product.  All you have to do is promote…

It’s going to be a game changer, no doubt.  It is a product structured to make money. Not overnight, but steady, sustainable money. And build your list.  Your all important, key to long term success, gotta have it list.

A couple of things I can tell you from the inside.  List Viral is set up to use Rocket Responder.  Not any of the others, RR.  If you are not a member of RR watch for the OTO.  It is a dandy…

List Viral is paid only.  It is a service as much as RR or trck.me.  There are 3 membership levels, and they range from eye popping to unbelievable.  And guess what?  There are OTOs there too.  Really good, true One Time Offers.  Take them on your way by, because you aren’t going to see them again.

On a personal note, this is the first time I have gotten to be privy to the entire TimTech team working on a special project.  This has been fun.  Really fun.

One Plus

One Plus

I could actually write this post in about 30 words but Nick needs 500.

If there is only one plus that does the most good for me it is “Thank You” .  Say it.  Mean it.  Live it.  The courtesy your Mamma taught you will take you a long way.

Plus one is such a great concept, and now that Jon Olson has codified his system in Plus One Success it is a simple practice to grasp and execute.  Simple, but not easy. Just do one thing more every day, and in his system, rinse and repeat after 30 days. Simple.

But I’m busy (or at least like to appear that way) and I don’t always have time to read or act on something new every day.  It’s just too much some days.

So I’m going to share the one Plus that has taken me the farthest in my life, the one that I have a chance of doing every day.  Say thank you.

It’s pretty easy, actually.  I’ve been doing it so long that I don’t have to think about it very much, it just sort of pops out most of the time.  And I just can’t tell you how far that simple phrase has carried me in life.  From service in a restaurant to getting parts after hours to having people notice me in TE land, it’s all come from one source.

Common Courtesy.  A practice that is unfortunately not so common these days.  I’m not so sure it ever was, but particularly in the world we live in today.  And even more particularly in the on line world where “I’ll never see her” or “He doesn’t know who I am” or “I am anonymous”  is the norm, the need for courtesy seems to be dead.  It isn’t.

Most of us in TE land are in the service industry in some way.  We want people to ‘buy our stuff’ which might simply translate as ‘let me serve you’.  We want people to ‘know like and trust us’ might really be ‘I can provide better service than any of these other guys..and will’  We want to be known:  ‘Look at me!  I provide this service which will solve this problem’!

Service in this case is a derivative of “To Serve”  or “To Wait On”.  To provide something like a servant would.  To serve the needs of.

Saying Thank You is a part of that service.  A genuine thank you is the grease that all of commerce slides on.  Common courtesy is the grease that keeps the bearings of business from freezing up and stopping.  Thank you supplies the lubrication that builds and grows friendships.  A simple thank you can take you all the way to the top!

When I started this, I said I could write this post in 30 words.  It actually took 35.  Here is the first paragraph again:

If there is only one plus that does the most good for me it is “Thank You” .  Say it. Mean it.  Live it.  The courtesy your Mamma taught you will take you a long way.

Ostrich Effect

This is a little different post for me. Not that I have never touched on the subject, but I don’t believe I’ve ever been as direct.

Suck Up

Typically, that is a person that goes out of her way to curry favor with a person that is in a position to improve the suck ups life in some way. People suck up to others all the time. Boss, waiters, clerks, doctors… the list is practically endless.

Suck Up (the noun) is generally given a negative tone, but I’m going to tell you a secret about business. It works. And everybody does it. Call it schmoozing or networking or whatever, it’s pretty well known that businesses and individuals alike give more breaks and more perks to people that they like and who have helped them out in the past. Quid Pro Quo.

So I’m going to give you a chance to suck up to the biggest dog in our industry. To do something that Justin Ledvina is guaranteed to remember.   Right Here.

Justin has written a book and is floating an indegogo campaign to cover the initial publishing costs. He has several perks tied to levels of funding. The key, I think is the $25 contribution. For that, you get an e book to read before the regular release AND a copy of the paper book with a thank you note signed by Justin.

You think he might remember every name that he writes in the front of one of HIS books? Ya THINK?

The surprise to me is not that Justin is offering a signed copy as a perk, but that 100 people in our business haven’t seen the possibilities and jumped on the chance. It’s tailor made.

So far, all I’ve talked about is the pure business sense of spending $25. The other part is the book itself. Justin is a very talented writer with vast experience in business. You can bet the book is going to be worth the $25 itself.

So. Order or don’t. It’s really no skin off my butt either way. But if you don’t take this opportunity don’t ever come to me with the question “How can I get TimTech to back me on this venture?”

Fund the book at Indegogo and you won’t have to ask…

Plus One Success

Plus One

I’m writing this and so excited I can hardly sit still. This is a big day for TimTech but a Monster day for me. How come?

Announcing Plus One Success

This is the Jon Olson success plan all in one place. It is really a series of little things that really add up to big things. Jon has written an ebook that you can download. It’s just full of the good stuff. It’s like going to 23 TELive broadcasts at the same time only better.

And there is MORE. The book is rebrandable, if you upgrade. You think THE book by Jon Olson is going to have some impact? Yeah, probably.

Guess what? I still get sign ups from Pizza Plan, let alone from Pizza Plan 2. The rebrand is a moneymaker for years to come.

There is a full month worth of daily lessons from Justin Ledvina. I’ve heard them, this is Justin at his very best, and that is just damn good.

And MORE. There is a super upgrade that allows you to join the ‘Jon Olson Book Club’ You get a book mailed to you every month. Everybody gets the same book, and during the month Jon will have exclusive discussion groups to discuss the book and the impact on our business. How cool is that? What do you think the chances are of Purple Cow being the first choice? I don’t know, but I can imagine Jon going full tilt on that discussion!

A word of warning here. The One Time Offers are real, you will hate yourself if you don’t take it.

I need to tell. There are a couple of familiar names involved in this process that you might not have considered. Sunny Suggs and Winter Perkins. Sunny as the script wizard and Winter as the designer. How about that???

And more. Go take a look for yourself.

So why am I hyper? This is my first time to be a part of the TimTech team in the thrash to launch. It has been an amazing process to watch and be part of. TimTech doesn’t launch stuff all that often and I am completely jazzed.
