I must have been about 16 or 17. I was a guitar nut by then. I couldn't play much, but I was a fan; a big fan of guitars. Any music on TV was carefully screened to see if any serious guitar players were involved. I was into rock music, but I had enough understanding of the genre to know that most of the stuff I loved to listen to had evolved from the blues.One of the pre-requisites of my blues education was a late night program in the UK, called the Old Grey Whistle Test, I am ashamed to say that although most of the music (I now know) was great, I turned my nose up at most of it. I could just about tolerate a keyboard or piano, but brass instruments were most definitely for pansies. You couldn't get more removed from rock and roll than a trumpet or a trombone!I digress.One night, I saw that the OGWT roster had someone called Freddie King on. I had heard of him, because I had heard of most people. I may have barely scraped through my traditional education, but at my Rock n Roll … [Read more...] about All I Want For Christmas – Is a Freddie King Guitar!
In the interest of full disclosure, that actually happened to me. Larry King invited me to lunch!How it happened is very funny. Could it happen to someone else? It's so far out, who knows? But, it's a great example of the power of networking, which is my subject today. More on that in a moment.In seminars and writings, I talk a lot about networking. The most spectacular example, for me, had to do with Larry King, whom I've long admired.

One of them mentioned that he would be going to a dinner that would be hosted by Larry King. Whereupon I said, "Please tell Larry that Tom Justin said to say hello."He asked if I knew Mr. King. I said no, but if I can get enough people to tell Larry King that Tom Justin said to say hello, he'll think it's his fault that he doesn't know who I am.The man laughed, said he'd do it. Two weeks later he … [Read more...] about How To Get Larry King To Invite You To Lunch And Other Networking Secrets
In a previous article, the importance of providing an ample range of graphic banner sizes to allow for the different approaches of affiliate marketers was discussed. To be creating banners in the right sizes is not, however, enough in itself to guarantee success.If one wants to do well in any arena, it makes sense to put in an initial investment of time and effort, or to pay others to do so. Knocking up three or four shoddily-made banners and half a dozen phrases that read as though they had been intoned by the local funeral director or, conversely, thought up by the director's four-year-old in one of his sillier moods and spelled with just about the same level of seriousness, is not really a recipe for results.One wouldn't approach marketing in that manner offline, so why expect it to work online? Having said that, one or two merchants will always get away with it but marketing is not about getting lucky and selling in spite of ones' sales campaign!Producing a dull-looking banner that … [Read more...] about Banneralities – An Affiliate’s-Eye View – Content Is King
