Seeing the forest for the trees or _____?

I use this metaphor to explain Internet Marketing Strategies all the time.

Forest For The Bears

Times have changed…

Times sure have changed… Cartoon_Computers
Yet some people still struggle with ‘technology’ and don’t understand the basics of Internet Marketing

Thank you Andrew Powell for the cartoon submission!

Bear in the woods

This is a metaphor that can change how you manage your Internet Marketing Strategies. Click on the image below to see how you can generate more leads for your business.

Bear waving - quote

Prevention is such a hard sell…

It’s hard to get an important PREVENTION message across… The anti-smoking lobby struggles with it. One of our gym owner/client finds it hard to help people prevent the onset of type II Diabetes and I want to protect small business owners from being fleeced by unscrupulous Internet Marketing spuikers, web design companies and now “Social Media Consultants”…

It’s hard to get the message across
without being heavy-handed or sensationalistic

Brendan Rigby of Inspire Fitness and Wellbeing in Melbourne tells me that someone who’s overweight, drinks too much alcohol, smokes and doesn’t exercise is a prime target for Type II Diabetes, but even if all the red flags are there, everyone but the ‘patient’ sees them.

I feel it’s the same thing with the Internet. I see or hear about small business owners  getting fleeced, taken advantage of and otherwise ‘robbed’ by Internet Marketing Spruikers who pitch miracle solutions from stage with manipulative tactics at the get-rich-quick opportunists that many would argue “get what they deserve”.

But isn’t that the same for the smokers or obese, soon-to-be diabetics?

The challenge we all have is how do we get the message across without being fear mongerers and using heavy-handed tactics like the video below?

I can remember meeting a smoker amputee who lost BOTH her legs (above the knee) due to smoking. She was still smoking with the impeding threat of double-arm amputation, which is when she claimed she would “try to quit”. I was in my early twenties at the time, she was in her 40′s. I doubt she made it to her 50th birthday. I am still shocked almost 30 years later recalling that conversation.

There are some people that can’t and don’t want to be helped or saved

But there are those who, given a fair chance,
want to be forewarned – especially if the alternative is better

Leveraging the Internet does not have to be scary, intimidating or costly. In fact, the world has changed to make technology and access ubiquitous via increasingly easier and cheaper tools.

But the bottom line is – there is no point in discussing any of them – UNLESS YOU’RE OPEN to the possibilities.

If you are open to consider alternatives to expensive web designers and social media consultants, we’re staging an eye-opening workshop in Sydney and Melbourne in April.

It comes with a 100% Money-Back Guarantee that simply states that if after the 4-hour DIY Masterclass you didn’t get enough ideas, tips and tools to make or save you at least a multiple of the workshop fee, we’ll refund you the full registration fee – NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

Why? Because we don’t offer Internet web design and Social Media Consulting services – we and our clients don’t like them any more than you do.

AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT, you can grow your business leveraging the Internet doing it yourself AT A FRACTION OF THE COST OF THE SO-CALLED EXPERTS… AND GET BETTER RESULTS !!!

Come find out how at our next workshop called “How To Convert Online Browsers Into Buyers“.

Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp Day 2 Of 3

As I mentioned yesterday, we’re at the Marriott Hotel, staging the last of the Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamps - ever. We’re not opening it up to the general public anymore, we’re going to keep the content for our most privileged clients – our Platinum Program Members… That being said, there is one concept that you can gain instant access to, it’s called Virtual Real Estate and as I’ve mentioned previously on several occasions, the program will be re-branded, re-formatted and the price substantially increased. At this price, it’s an absolute bargain because it introduces you to the concept that we’re leveraging for brick and mortar businesses every day. Plumbers, dentists, engineers, doggy day care centres, consultants, you name it.

Social Media Marketing is a time consuming waste of time – UNLESS you know what you’re doing and how to do it properly.

This is a program that can save you in excess of 200 hours of searching plus a lot of the information in the bonuses you simply would never find on your own.

Go ahead and click here on the hyperlink here – to find out about Virtual Real Estate.

At the Bootcamp, I am spending 3 hours explaining this concept in detail – not for people to actually Flip Websites For Profit, but to leverage the business model to create an endless stream of qualified prospects walking into their stores or businesses that become paying clients.

Imagine having a lead generation system that is free. That’s right, new leads that don’t cost you a cent.

That’s what Bootcamp attendees are learning about this weekend – you’re not there, so the next best thing you can do is get the online video program and try to get as much from it as you can. Otherwise you’re wasting a lot time and effort for… nothing.

There is a better way, an exponential way of doing things.

Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp Day 1 Of 3

It’s unfortunate you’re not in the room with me at the Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp with other Australian entrepreneurs who are going to learn the most cost effective online strategies to get more traffic to their websites and/or blogs. We’re at the Marriott Hotel and right now I am about to reveal where the fish are and how to get them to jump into their boat, using the powerful metaphor in this video…

I’ve been telling people all year that I am leaving the “Internet Marketing” space – that has been overrun by shameless spruikers at multi-speaker sales fest events…

I am not abandoning the Internet – quite the contrary. I am using more and more strategies and teaching my client stealth marketing strategies that enable them to out-perform their competitors without them ever having a clue why.

Imagine getting on page 1 of Google, being at the top of local listings, getting better leads that convert to sales more quickly… Imagine if those strategies were mostly free or cost pennies on the dollar… That’s what you’re missing by not being at the Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp.

Unfortunately, all I can offer you today is one of the more than 100 suggestions I am revealing to bootcamp participants. It’s an inexpensive strategy that you can implement right now and get a result by the time the Bootcamp ends in 2 days from now.

Click here -> to get more traffic to your blog. Select the PREMIUM listing – there will be a surge of requests following the Bootcamp and the premium listing comes with additional ‘secret’ benefits… You’ll have to get it to know what it is!

I hope you’re wearing clean underwear*

If you don’t know how Google has changed the rules of online search and what it means to your online presence and sales – you’re about to get caught with your pants down.

If you’ve been happy with your Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), you’re potentially in for a rude shock with Google’s new updates, enhancements and so-called ‘improvements’.

They can and will displace a lot of people who will be caught totally unaware “with their pants down”…

For example, do you know how…

  • Google Instant is radically altering the composition of search phrases?
  • Google Places can reward the mom and pop shop around the corner to your detriment especially if you’ve been the dominant advertiser?
  • Google Maps is creating havoc in listing result real estate positions relegating previously profitable listings to the scrap heap?
  • The new Google Website Preview function in search listings might cost you sales that used to come in like clockwork?
  • The Google search algorithm is dramatically changing the landscape for all players, no one is safe with a business-as-usual approach.

If you don’t know these changes are taking place – I hope you’re wearing clean underwear!

If you do know a little about what’s being changed but are not quite sure what to do about it, then you must attend the

Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp Preview
on NEXT Monday evening 6-9 PM in Sydney

I just realised I took it for granted that you know I have MULTIPLE BLOGS…

One of my most prestigious clients didn’t know I launched my Personal Mastery Blog a few weeks ago…

Dr Marc Dussault

Australia’s #1 Exponential Growth Strategist

P.S.

Of course my ADDITIONAL 1 percent improvement over the next few days will be posting this message on my other blogs so the readers of those blogs know about this one!

Here is your 1 percent improvement idea for today…

What can YOU think of that some of YOUR clients might not know about what you’re up to?

It’s the easiest and fastest 1 percent improvement you can do right now to improve your results.

The NEXT 1% is to get MORE TRAFFIC to your site by posting comments on my blogs.

This is TOTALLY free. When you do add these comments, make sure you include a backlink to your site that people can click on to see what you’re all about.

Make sure this backlink is formatted as shown below.

http://www.YourWebsite.com

Don’t make the comment a self-serving advertisement – ADD VALUE to the original blog post so that the reader APPRECIATES and ACKNOWLEDGES your point of view and WANTS to check out who you are. If it’s a blatant ‘ad’, (1) I won’t approve it and (2) no one would click through anyway. That is NOT exponential.

Remember the cornerstone principle of an Exponential Mindset™ – Create and GIVE MORE VALUE and you will be rewarded. If you violate this principle, you’ll waste time and simply won’t get any momentum started.

Be a LEADER which means LEAD BY EXAMPLE – do what works and be generous.

Every 1% percent improvement counts

I recently uploaded two YouTube videos that are ‘product’ description videos for my Marc-Ka-Ching Kube™, definitely a long tail niche marketing product.

BEFORE I even posted the videos on my site, there were 16 views of the first video with NO effort at all. The second one is a ‘non-publicised’ video for people who buy the Marc-Ka-Ching Kube™ that IS public on YouTube.

Having people automatically view videos is pretty cool by itself, but more importantly what the video does for me is increase the visitor experience ON THE PAGE. A 21 second video increases the visitor experience by orders of magnitude.

Search engines such as Google love that. They know that if people stay on a page LONGER, it’s a BETTER PAGE = a higher ranking.

Bottom line, every 1 percent improvement counts because it adds up at the end of the year!

Onward and upward!

P.S.

Did you know that 5% of Internet Marketers make more than the other 95% COMBINED? It’s a startling statistic, one that you can reverse for yourself by attending our Internet Millionaire Marketing Event in Melbourne on Saturday 6 December 2008.

The Internet is the easiest thing that’s hard to do.”

This blog has lots of FREE advice, imagine what I can teach you in a full 8-hour day!

Viral Video Marketing

I recently posted about this subject, Viral Video Marketing, but I thought I would add another one to show you how easy it is to CREATE VALUE and have fun at the same time.

Today’s video is called Evolution of Dance. If you haven’t seen this yet, you’ll have tears in your eyes and a sire stomach from laughing. It’s THAT FUNNY…

So what is the Internet Marketing Strategy in all this fun and games?

There are more than one.

  • You want to make business FUN, especially in a recession when people are feeling depressed and demoralised.
  • You want to create a REASON for people to come back to or REGISTER on your blog.
  • By getting people to come back to your blog, your SEO rankings go up. It helps when you get people to post comments and create a ‘community’ around the blog.
  • Creating value has many forms. One of them is laughter. It’s often overlooked, but it’s up there in Exponential Marketing Strategies.
  • You don’t have to create the content. You can leverage someone else’s, but you want to leverage it intelligently – like getting people to a BLOG POST rather than sending them directly to YouTube.

There are more, but you’ll have to come back for those on another day!

Only the top 5% make money on the Internet

“FACT: 5% Of The People On The Internet Make More Than The Other 95% Combined”

Come and learn the time-tested, proven techniques, tips, tactics, skills and strategies the top 5% use that you can customise and optimise on your website, starting in as little as 24 HOURS.

This one-day event usually only for our Platinum and Diamond Members is restricted to only 30 participants – register now while seats remain available.

Find out what successful Internet Marketers do to get FREE traffic to their websites and get MORE people to BUY from them than their competitors.

This is a short post because we expect the event to sell out just like our August Bootcamp did.

This is a PREMIUM EVENT and one of the last opportunities to attend an event at this price point.

Onward and upward!
Dr Marc Dussault
Australia’s #1 Exponential Growth Strategist

P.S.
There are previews for this event – they’re $97/person.

That’s how powerful these strategies are – even the preview isn’t FREE. Everyone else gives their previews away for free – because they have to.

This one-day event doesn’t even have a money-back guarantee. How bold is that?

It’s to make sure we only get the MOST COMMITTED PEOPLE who want to take home an extra $50,000 to $100,000 next year without working longer hours. In fact the primary objective of this one-day event is to instill in you the PASSIVE INCOME PHILOSOPHY and TACTICS of the top 5% who have their websites running on auto-pilot

We’re only looking for 30 people to join Bootcamp attendees – that’s how exclusive this event is. Don’t forget, there aren’t a lot of people in the top 5% – I figure that’s about 30 people.

YouTube the best FREE tool to decrease your sales cycle

If you’re scared by the current credit crunch, market meltdown and stock market roller coaster, you’re not alone. These are turbulent times.

To survive and thrive in these tough times, you need to have an Exponential Mindset™ which means you need to think and act antimimeticisomorphically. Which means doing out-of-the-ordinary things that create extra-ordinary results.

For example last night I held one of our closed-door Boardroom Briefing Sessions and I showed a photographer how he can create $200,000 in CASH SALES without taking another picture and a young lady how she can launch her business with NO MONEY DOWN, with a 3 weekend part-time effort to create a positive cash flow business so she can quit the job she hates.

That’s all good as we say, but what does that have to do with YouTube and decreasing your sales cycle?

Great question!

I am all about shifting people’s mindsets to get exponential results…

There’s this thing called YouTube that is a priceless marketing and sales tool that is TOTALLY FREE.

I can talk for hours and hours about getting you out of the entrepreneurial jail, but guess what?

You can SEE for yourself in LESS THAN 2 MINUTES by watching the YouTube video below.

So why would I waste time when I can cut to the chase and SHOW YOU THIS?

Do you get how poweful this is?

If you feel TRAPPED in your business or with your websites that are not making money – BREAK OUT NOW!

Get an Exponential Mindset™ that gets you to think DIFFERENTLY so you get DIFFERENT results and you can get out of the box that has held you prisoner.

LITERALLY.

This is NOT a metaphor – it’s REAL LIFE.

That’s what I do. I teach you to break out of your ‘jail cell’ of mediocre results to think like ‘Sofia the Beagle’…

That is the Exponential Power of the Internet to compress your Pathways To Profits™ – when you have an Exponential Mindset™.

Want to break out of your prison? Click here to book into one of our closed-door Boardroom Briefing Sessions in Sydney or Melbourne in the next 2-3 weeks

Onward and upward!
Dr Marc Dussault

P.S.

When you start to Unleash the Exponential Potential™, it’s amazing how easy it gets – people like Daniel Pinter will send you YouTube videos like this to HELP YOU GROW YOUR BUSINESS FOR FREE… Because they want to help you.

Of course you re-pay the GIFT with a mention and hypelink like this one http://www.btechnologies.com/ so you can get to KNOW what Daniel Pinter does so that the next time you need his services – you call him instead of his competitors.

Are you getting a sense and feeling of how much momentum you can create by doing this? The best thing is it’s easy and it’s TOTALLY FREE!

Ka-Ching!

Turn $97 into $1,000 in the next hour with this Internet TOOL

Every once in a while a SIMPLE TEST produces an incredible result – one that defies description.

This ONE TEST which you can do on your website that sells products or services will cost you $97 and take less than ONE HOUR to implement.

I turned $97 into WAY more than $10,000 in less than 3 months.

The beauty of the strategy/tool is it’s dirt cheap AND super simple to implement.

Want to know what it is?

You’ll have to post a comment on the blog to find out. The comment needs to be ONE thing you learnt or deployed as a result of this blog – I will send you a direct e-mail that reveals what this tool is. Think you know what it is?

You don’t I have never presented of discussed this even with our Platinum Members… They will find out about this next week in a PRIVATE e-mail… and ONLY if they are Internet Mastery Platinum Members!

Onward and upward!
Dr Marc Dussault

P.S.

Let me be crystal clear – this is a disarmingly simple and easy tool that converts SALES that you otherwise would not get…

For $97 it’s a bargain. I make no money from telling you what it is – $97 is what it costs to buy and deploy.

This is NOT a trick, just a cool way to find out who’s engaged and who isn’t on this blog.

It’s also a cool way to get comments on the blog – you give me something of value that I can share with other subscribers and readers of this blog and I reciprocate with this strategy/tool that I know you’ll find as profitable as I do!

Get MORE clicks INSTANTLY

The easiest way to get more clicks is to WRITE your URL more legibly.

www.SpeedStudyForBusiness.com will out-click www.speedstudyforbusiness.com.

www.MarcDussault.com will get MORE visitors than www.marcdussault.com.

It is even more the case with long URLs like…

www.ExponentialPrograms.com/Internet and www.exponentialprograms.com/internet.

Make sure you use this simple, easy and free technique and watch your click-throughs improve INSTANTLY!

Onward and upward!
Dr Marc Dussault

P.S.

Another technique that can help that you might want to test is to use hyphens…

www.Get-Better-Grades.com

I know – it’s simple and you might want it to be more complicated. STOP IT!

I’m serious – watch the YouTube video and take the advice seriously – STOP IT!

Stop making your Internet strategies more complicated than they need to be.

“The Internet is the easiest thing that is hard to do.”

That’s only because 95% of the population makes it that way. The 5% who make it simple and easy make MORE than the 95% combined – Ka-Ching!

Think about it – do you want MORE complexity or MORE money in your bank account?

Get 10% More Prospects Into Your Database TODAY

Yes, that’s right – I have an exponential strategy to get 10% more suspects and prospects into YOUR database today.

They are already there, you just don’t know it.

That’s right – they are there, but you can’t find them.

When you search for people with e-mails, they’re not there.

When you search for people with mobiles to SMS them, they’re not there.

When you search for people in New South Wales, they’re not there.

But they’re there.

But you can’t find them.

Confused?

Let me explain.

Chances are your database is not 100% clean and tidy. That means you have data in the wrong places and when you’re searching, you can’t find what you’re looking for.

The solution is for you to do a data cleanse.

I’ve used the services of Birendra Shah – he’s on Guru.com, his ID is 1029306.

He cleans all our data – based on Australian standards and rules for phone numbers, addresses, etc.

He will make sure that:

  • States are correctly and uniformly identified (NSW instead of N.S.W. or NewSouth Wales or N South Wales, etc.)
  • ALL phone numbers are formatted correctly and additional digits, spaces, parentheses and hyphens are removed.
  • Mobiles are all in the MOBILE column and NOT in the PHONE column – if they are not in the MOBILE column, you can’t do an SMS campaign to them!
  • He’ll make sure that addresses that can be, are completed – for example all postcodes 3000-3999 will have ‘VIC’ added to the STATE field.
  • Duplicate phone numbers are removed.

The net effect of doing this means you will ‘GAIN’ as much as or even MORE than 10% suspects and/or prospects from WITHIN your database.

We recently did exactly this exercise and ‘found’ 600 new mobile numbers, we ‘completed’ more than 800 addresses that we could now send postcards and event invitations to.

This is a priceless improvement that costs as little as $100 for a small database and not more than $500 for a larger one.

Contact Birendra and get it done right away – you’ll be glad you did.

Onward and upward!
Dr Marc Dussault

P.S.
Of course there are additional benefits to doing this – for example it simplifies the removal of duplicate entries which will save you MULTIPLES of the clean up. It will help you see your information more clearly as you quickly scan reports and e-mail campaigns.

You’ll be able to quickly spot the errors and/or omissions quickly and easily.

You’ll feel more confident about the data you have. That will be reflected in better customer service and satisfaction.

It’s one of the least expensive and easiest things to do that will make an IMMEDIATE DIFFERENCE to your results starting TOMORROW when you get your cleaned data back.

Another advantage of doing is that it forces you to focus on your data – exactly where you are – that is how many phone numbers, e-mails and addresses you actually have. It’s called having a datum or benchmark.

In a year from now, you’ll be able to gauge your progress.

We do this on an on-going basis, every time our database increases by 100% or so.

You can also take this opportunity to combine your outlook, Excel spreadsheets and database for the ‘Double Whammy™’…

That is, if you really want to Unleash The Exponential Potential™ within your database!

Less is more

This is going to be a short post, but quite powerful.

I have what I call the Dr’s Daily Distinctions that I send every day to our Platinum, VIP and Gold Momentum Members.

Within the distinctions are several exercises, challenges, tests and lessons.

Ronnlynn Bartosch completed one that I thought was valuable enough to share with you. It’s about being succinct, to the point and adding as much value as possible. Below are her 3 points, extracted from a 40-page document.

Capitalise domain suffix and initial letter of each word in domain name = easier to read and remember! eg EasyLifeEbooks.com

Cut clutter from copy: use keywords and phrases (including derivatives) = improved SEO e.g. Discount car dealership, dealership, dealer.

Place link to your website in Wikipedia ensuring topic is related to your website = free traffic. No topic relation = removal for spamming.

So whaddaya think?

Powerful stuff eh?

Onward and upward!
Marc

P.S.
Of course you can do the same exercise – post a comment and we’ll see how you go. I know it looks easy, but it’s not.

Go ahead and see what happens!

I dare you.

That’s right – I dare you.

It’s NOT as easy as it looks – trust me, I’ve been doing this for 20 years. EVERYONE thinks it’s easy UNTIL they try it.

Go on, impress us with your brilliance – we want to see it.

I’ll link your comment so you get the TRAFFIC back to your site…

Fall, trip and StumbleUpon more traffic

Today, I’m going to tell you all about an Internet site that gives you a whole new way to generate traffic to your site.

It’s called StumbleUpon.com

StumbleUpon is a recommendation system which uses peer and social networking principles to promote webpages that its users approve of.

It’s a word of mouth system – users rate a site by giving it a thumbs up, thumbs down or neutral on the StumbleUpon toolbar, and can post a review on the site, which also appears on the user’s blog.

StumbleUpon has ENORMOUS potential in maximizing brand exposure.

Here’s how…

You can get started by installing the toolbar, which is compatible with Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Click here to get it for your FireFox Browser
.

The NEXT thing you want to do is register your site or blog, by going to StumbleUpon, and using your newly installed toolbar to tag and review it by clicking on the blue thumbs up symbol which has “I like it!” next to it.

Once your website or blog gets StumbledUpon, it’ll usually start to immediately receive visitors from all over the world.

This is FREE and AUTOMATIC traffic.

How cool is that eh?

Yeah I know.

[By the way, today's blog post is an extract from the Wizard’s Website Wisdom™ subscription - For $97 you'd get 52 of these ideas... You can register by clicking here.]

I know.

But then again I’m biased!

But thanks for noticing. I appreciate the acknowledgement. I go through a lot of effort and invest a lot of time and yes money to make sure each and every distinction is valuable.

I know some APPEAR more valuable, but EACH one has within it a catalyst to explode your Exponential Potential™.

Sometimes you just StumbleUpon the KEY that unlocks the vault of profits unleashing a new torrential River of Revenue™ that starts to flow into your bank account…
So let’s get back to StumbleUpon…

What does traffic from StumbleUpon do for YOU?

1. Generate rapid exposure for a specific website, brand or concept.

2. Establish a reader base for your blog VERY quickly.

3. Gain numerous backlinks from StumbleUpon visitors with websites (meaning better visibility with search engines).

Here’s a graph to show you the traffic you can expect! http://www.seomoz.org/blog/stumbleupons-fantastic-ability-to-drive-traffic

One thing you HAVE to do is optimise your site to encourage stumbling readers to stay and take a look around.

Good web design is important for StumbleUpon visitors. The average time spent on a web page can be less than 10 seconds. They tend to look more than they read.

Video, Humor, Web 2.0 and eclectic websites do extremely well with StumbleUpon.

Then you need to convert your Stumblers into feed subscribers.

Here’s how the pros do it:

Offer subscriber-only benefits. If you want to build up your marketing list or feed subscribers, Give away free videos, e-books or other materials that are ONLY available to subscribers.

You MUST NOT violate this claim to exclusivity. Remember the Law of Attraction…

If your content becomes too easily available, it lessens its value. Stumblers are LOOKING for stuff they can’t find anywhere else.

Of course you MUST keep producing great content, to ensure people don’t get turned off and unsubscribe!

Stumblers love competitions – use them to ensure your visitors keep coming back.
You can expect an average of 100 to 8000 daily unique visitors once your web page has been StumbledUpon (or is that StumbleUponed?).

The site Dosh Dosh ran an experiment and the best performance was 2000+ visitors in 6 hours – just think what THAT kind of traffic can do for your site!

There is also another way in which you can monetize StumbleUpon and take advantage of millions of visitors.

Put advertising on YOUR site. Use a good banner company that pays you a good rate. Also try private ad arrangements and negotiate for specific rates.

Use affiliate banners or affiliate text links within your content. I would suggest taking the time to disguise the links to improve your Click Through Rate (CTR).

Use video advertising. Remember, we talked about www.Revver.com that allows you to put up videos and get paid whenever anyone clicks on ads within the video…

Monetized image hosts. Several image hosts allow you to earn money whenever anyone clicks on a thumbnail which leads to the full image on their website.

Use subscription based monetization. An example of this is an online magazine, business networking community or forum which offers a premium section for paying members, kind of like the Wizard’s Website Wisdom™, The Dr’s Daily Distinctions™ or Squash Lessons for Marketing…

Buy sponsored stumbles. You can run an advertising campaign with StumbleUpon and pay 5 cents for every targeted person they send to your website. You can target according to personal interest, history of rating similar sites, location, and demographics such as age and sex.

How cool are those suggestions?

Is you head spinning with new ideas?

Isn’t this great?

I told you a long time ago that the Internet is the ONLY truly exponential tool for your business. The Kaleidoscopic Kombinations™ available to you are literally limitless and boundless.

So don’t stumble along with your Internet marketing – use StumbleUpon to generate traffic and sales!

Onward and upward!
