Vision Casting

There was a man who was preaching a message to his audience. All of the sudden, he stopped in the middle of his sermon and cried “Wait. Don’t jump! The answer is in your briefcase!”.

The preacher’s audience looked baffled, and he was as well. He honestly couldn’t tell you WHY he said what he said.

A while later, he found out why. While taking a train home from a business trip, another man, a lonely man, contemplating taking his life, decided to first listen to a tape his loved one had packed away for him. He thought it was an “inspirational tape”, not necessarily a sermon.

Actually, it was both. Here’s why. When the lonely business man started that tape, he heard it played at exactly the point where it said, “Wait. Don’t jump! The answer is in your briefcase”.

He went to his briefcase and found that the one he loved had also packed away a Bible.

A long time ago, there was a wise King who went into one of the provinces of his village.

“I am looking for a child, to raise as my own” he declared. “The one which I choose shall have the finest of everything”. Then, he distributed flower pots among the orphan children….Continue Reading

Fruitfulness in the Market Place|Internet Marketing Prosperity

I have found that while most believers truly believe that they should bear fruit in their spiritual life and even in their earthly relationships, they struggle with the idea that the their Heavenly Father is pleased when they experience increase in their business.

And that puzzles me, because the Bible has so much to say about this topic.

Prosperity is Spiritual, Material, and Physical

1 Corinthians 16:2 | Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

Zechariah 8:12 | For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.

It’s God’s will for you to prosper:

3 John 1:2 | Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Psalms 118:25 | Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

Meditating on God’s word is important

teen reading

Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. NOTE: It doesn’t say that if you buy my internet marketing program you shall prosper. It says if you meditate in God’s word, then everything you do will succeed!

Meditation prepares us to keep God’s word

Joshua 1:8 | This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Keeping God’s law is the first step to prosperity

Deuteronomy 29:9| Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.

Joshua 1:7 |Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

1 Kings 2:3| And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:

1 Chronicles 22:13| Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the LORD charged Moses with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed.

These People Prospered Because the LORD Was with Them

2 Kings 18:7 | And the LORD was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.

1 Chronicles 22:11 | Now, my son, the LORD be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the LORD thy God, as he hath said of thee.

Solomon prospered when he was in his position of authority

1 Chronicles 29:23 | Then Solomon sat on the throne of the LORD as king instead of David his father, and prospered; and all Israel obeyed him.

We also must recognize TRUE spiritual authority (authority that God has approved of and confirmed to us as our authority)…not authority that a man claims, pushes toward, or takes upon himself.


2 Chronicles 20:20| And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

These are just some of the fundamentals of how to use spiritual principles in your finances.

How to do SEO

The first question to ask is, why.  “Why do I want to do SEO for my website”? Your answer will tell you your strategy.

“I want to do SEO for my website because I want to dominate the Search Engines”.

Okay, I get that. But…why? Why do you want to dominate the search engines?
“I want to do SEO because I’m suppossed to”.
Okay…but why? Why are you “supposed” to.

“I want to do SEO because it’s just part of good web design”.
“I want to do SEO to draw traffic to my website”.

There are other ways to draw traffic besides SEO.

Crickets.

No, it’s really true. You can absolutely draw traffic to your website even if you don’t have meta-tags or an optimized url.

Now right now, I’m sure I’ve lost most of you. You probably just don’t believe that without having SOME seo you are ever going to be able to get anyone to see your website. But, now, think about this. What if you ordered a set of business cards with your url on it, and passed them out. Would that get you traffic?

If you told all your friends about your website,  do you think they might hang around longer than someone who was “surfing” the web? as in, skimming the waves of every site they found?

See, a lot people want to dominate the web for reasons that don’t prmote their end result

“I want to be high in the search rankings so others will go “oh, wow, you are number one on Google!”
Um, oh kay…..
“I want to be high in the search rankings so that my competitors will drool”.
Keep going…
“I want to be humber one on Google so that everyone will call me and ask to advertise on my site”.

But that’s not the right reason.  You can be number one on Google and have zero traffic. Not for very long, mind you, but it can happen. Lots of people rank number one on Google for about three days. But when no one likes what they see, their rankings drop like a rock.

It isn’t enough to have a great set of tags and categories.

And it isn’t enough to have a properly optimized url and even 5000 backlinks. Because if your website isn’t natural, people won’t stick around. And that will drop you in the rankings.

So then. Can your website indeed rise in the rankings if you merely write naturally. Yes. There is one way you can rise in the rankings if you do this “one weird tip” no really it’s not weird at all, it’s just that no one is doing it.

It’s called writing naturally

How to Enable the “Follow” feature on your Word Press blog.

susanmelin

Did you know that a lot of people run across your blog on the WordPress platform?

And did you know that a lot of those people would love to “follow” your blog. But they can’t because you haven’t enabled the “following” setting.

Here’s how you do it.

From you dashboard, go to Settings.  Click on it. You should see a drop down menu (it might display on the side of the tab, rather than “dropping down”). Hover your mouse over the Word discussions and left click. A page will display, labeled, “Discussions”. On the left hand column will be a series of choices, with check boxes. Scroll down to find the option that says “Follow Blog”. It must say “Follow Blog” and not something similar.

Click on the check box, and don’t forget to save your settings.

Settings > Discussions> Follow blog.

That’s the sequence you need to click in…
