How to Grow Your Email List With Pinterest

Who is Angie Gensler?

Angie Gensler worked in marketing in the busy and pressurised corporate world in the USA, and found more freedom to enjoy her life and family when she formed her own business in 2016, enabling her to quit her high paying job.

She tells her story in a short Free Training Video entitled ¨How To Grow Your Email List With Pinterest¨.

Angie explains how she was stressed in her corporate 6 figure job, and not happy with her lifestyle, as she was overstressed and overworked and sick of the travel which her corporate job entailed. She spent 10 years as a professional corporate marketer before she came to that decision.

Angie Gensler also has 13 years of experience running her own businesses. Angie has a Degree In Marketing, and also an MBA.

Angie explains that she is passionate about teaching entrepreneurs how to build a business with balance because she believes in family time. She explains that she did not want a Non-Stop business, because of her belief in Family Time.

Angie is the Author of an Ebook entitled ¨The Viral Pin Formula – 7 Ingredients To Incorporate Into Your Pin Designs¨. See the ebook ViralPinFormula here.

Angie laid the plans for her own business in November 2016 and decided on her corporate strategy with her husband. She has carried out a lot of research into different business models and tested out different business tactics. When they launched the business in December 2016, they were surprised that the results which they were obtained from their marketing exceeded their goals and expectations, and she shares those success methods in her training.

Using the methods she describes in her training, she achieved 100 subscribers within 10 days, and more than 500 subscribers within 30 days and this is what she describes in her training video ¨How To Grow Your Email List With Pinterest¨.

Why Pinterest – What Are The Benefits?

In her training video ¨How To Grow Your Email List With Pinterest¨, Angie Gensler explains some of the content of her Course Pinterest 101, and how Pinterest marketing works.

Pinterest is a Visual platform for users to discover ideas and inspiration. So Pinterest uses Pins which are essentially either Images or Videos, together with content, and a link to an online source.

Pinterest is partly a Social Network, enabling users to Like, Comment, Save and Follow other Pins and Members, with whom you can collaborate in order to work on Group boards.

Pinterest is also a Search Engine, so you can carry out very specific keyword searches for images videos and ideas, which is explained in one of Angie´s free training videos.

Pinterest also runs on Content, so you need to send traffic to your blog posts, which is the most popular and successful method, or send to a YouTube video or a Podcast, alternatively you can send traffic to a Squeeze Page, or a Sales Page or a Product Page, giving you an enormous capability to make conversions.

One of the big benefits of Pinterest is that you can get a very early influence on a visitor´s buying decision, which is extremely powerful.

Another benefit of Pinterest is that you can get instant traffic without paying for advertisements.

Also in Pinterest, your content lives forever, unlike most other Social Media platforms where your content or posts have a very short lifespan.

For SEO, Pinterest is very good because it is a rapidly growing platform, with plenty of opportunities for user growth in 2019 and beyond.

Pinterest posts can be automated using tools such as Tailwind, which can save you a lot of time.

Pinterest Ads cost a lot less than Facebook Ads and can produce significantly better results.

OMS Review of Online Video In Marketing


online video in marketing

online video in marketing

Online Video in Marketing

Video is a relatively new development in Social Media, but has rapidly grown in importance owing to the way in which people have readily adapted to and are hungry for the visual form of communication, and are eager to consume more and more video recorded information. Some people learn easier from the visual medium, rather than reading text. It continues to grow rapidly and is forecast to be by far the most widely used medium within 5 years.

Video has been phenomenally successful in the field of online Internet Marketing, especially on YouTube, because the videos are also ranked by Google.

Youtube Make Money Online

Youtube Make Money Online

People are more likely to watch a video which informs them about a particular topic, than to read the equivalent amount of text on the same subject. So videos are used to advertize products which are available, or to inform interested parties about the uses of particular products or availability of offers, or to inform about changes in situations in fact to inform people about more or less anything.

The videos are extremely powerful because they can be viewed by large numbers of people at any time (in fact at different times in different time zones and in different parts of the world) without the need to identify and locate those people.

Anyone can view a video from their computer or from their mobile telephone.

No email address or identity is required such as is needed for email marketing, where usually an interested party must either send their email address or consent to receipt of an email about a particular subject.

There are a number of reasons for this fact, and one of the prime ones is that communication by video is more personal than communication via a website with pages or posts. It is direct communication between the author of the video and the viewer or recipient of the transmission.

Authors of videos have an opportunity to project their personality to the viewer, and gain their trust by at least starting to form a personal impression, the start of a personal relationship which can be further developed.

Additionally videos are relatively easy and cheap to produce, and can be authored or made by more or less anyone, thus opening up a powerful means of communication to more or less anyone, whether tied to a large company or promoting their own small brand and unique products.

Repeated viewings of the same video can generate a high income for marketers.

Social Media Sites – Youtube

Youtube is the second most popular Social Media medium, after Facebook. Youtube is owned by Google, and Youtube rankings have a relation to Google rankings.

Youtube Screen Shot online video in marketing

Youtube Screen Shot

Videos can be posted on Youtube for no cost and on any subject at all subject to conformity with Youtube rules and regulations.

Links can be placed in the footnotes to Videos which relate to relevant websites or other information so that visitors can look at relevant content. This feature is very powerful because it means that traffic can be created onto a website from an apparently unconnected subject.

Viewers of videos can subscribe to follow video authors on whom they are keen, which is another way of perpetuating communication, without any cost.

Anyone can make a Youtube Channel on which they can post their videos on any subject whatsoever.

Videos can be liked or shared as well, and some videos go viral, which can have a very dramatic effect on traffic related to such videos.

Social Media Sites – Facebook

Facebook is the most widely used of all the Social Media, and is used by 11billion people worldwide?

Videos can be uploaded to Facebook and made available to interested groups of people, using the Facebook Live Video facility.

Facebook Live Video online video in marketing

Facebook Live Video

Alternatively, videos can be streamed live to interested groups of people, which can then be posted and viewed later by other interested people .

Social Media Sites – WhatsApp

WhatsApp allows the transmission of images from an individual´s mobile phone to another party, including photograph and video images.

WhatsApp image online video in maketing

Social Media Sites – Twitter

Tweets can be made of trending topics and can link to images and videos, which greatly increases the power of a tweet which is limited to 140 characters.

Instagram is a site devoted mainly to images but it is also possible to upload videos.

 OMS Conclusion

Online Video In Marketing is a very popular and powerful medium, and can be posted on either Facebook (or streamed live) on Youtube or embedded into a website with ease.

online video in marketing

online video in marketing

From these platforms (especially on Facebook and Youtube), videos can be viewed by thousands if not millions of interested people. Some videos are extremely popular and are termed to have gone ´viral´.

You can use this to help to generate traffic to your website if you have one.

The interested potential customers and clients visiting the video wherever it is located, can choose whether they watch the video, or not at all, or any portion of the video. The visitor has control over whether and to what extent he is informed by the video. Dwell time on the video is a Key Performance Indicator.

OMS can provide you with professionally prepared animated videos similar to this example:

OMS Review Of Rethink Social Media Advertising By Paul O´Mahoney

Introduction – Paul O´Mahoney – ReThink Social Media Advertising

Paul O´Mahoney is a best selling author and a specialist in Social Media Advertising, who has become very successful through his use of webinars and social media endorsement producing viral traffic growth. Paul even became a Guiness World Record holder recently for the longest ever continual public speech.

As the author of a book called ¨ReThink Social Media – Stop Wasting Time. Start Earning Money¨, Paul states that the book is organised in the following manner to give a good grounding in Social Media to even the most uninformed reader. Paul Offers his own version of Social Media by re-thinking his approach to marketing strategies.

social media training course

Paul O´Mahoney Facebook


Paul acknowledges many of the people he has met on the way along his journey and writing his book Rethink Social Media. Those named include Gary McGeown, Donna Kennedy, Pat Slattery in Dublin in 2009, when his journey started. Apart from numerous unnamed friends (as Paul calls practically all his acquaintances) there is a big list of media and business celebrities who are acknowledged including:

Mark Anastasia, Milli Ponce, Richard and Veronica Tan, John DeMartini, John Assaraf, Tony Robbins, Andrew Reynolds, Tai Lopez, Richard Branson, Russell Brunson, and many more. If you want to see the whole list it would be better you buy the book (or borrow it) and read it.

Paul also thanks the various teams of people he has worked with along the way, as well as of course his family.

Precis of Re-Thinking Social Media

Section 1: Introduction

Paul quotes the following as the header to his introduction: ¨We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them¨, Albert Einstein.

social media training course

albert einstein

Paul states that an entrepreneur should have honesty and integrity as their most important assets.

He differentiates between the casual Social Media user and the entrepreneur who is trying to find advantage from the dialogue which takes place on Social Media, in order to identify and target potential customers.

Paul suggests that Social Media Advertising is essential for any business person to master and use for their business purposes in todays market place.

Chapter 1: Introduction – What is Social Media

Paul again quotes Einstein ¨If I had an hour to solve a problem I´d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions¨.

Paul´s idea was to write a book about Social Media which would enable business owners and entrepreneurs to re-assess or re-think their approach to using Social Media. He defines Social Media as a means to socialize, which is a natural inclination of people through the ages, but in this age is channelled through certain pipelines such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, depending on what priorities and messages people want to communicate. Pinterest is obviously inclined towards people who want to share images and graphics. Twitter on the other hand is favoured by people wanting to give very brief snippets of information. Paul´s view is that Social Media in its current form started to evolve around 2005.

Social Media means different things to different groups of people, so for the business owner it is important to be able to identify potential markets. What is clear is that it is used by almost half the people on the planet, and takes up a massie amount of time.

What the business owner needs to do is find a way to efficiently use what he needs from Social Media, without becoming distracted spending too much time, in order to maximize his profits from that medium.

Section 2: Concept

Chapter 2: Why Do Businesses Fail?

¨Entrepreneurs are the only people who will work 80 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours a week¨, Lori Greiner.

social media advertising


Paul contrasts traditional businesses with modern internet type businesses. He also compares the role of the employee with the business owner. He questions the objectives of a business, what are its aspirations, pointing out that as an ex-employee a new business owner may not be at all suited to what he needs to do.

The conclusion from analysis of 101 business start-ups, 42% failed because there was no market need for the product or service being offered, as expressed by the sentence:

People do not buy what you think they need, they buy what they want!

What the business owner needs to do is simply give people what they want, and also make a profit, in order to stay in business.

The entrepreneur needs to leverage tools such as the internet and social media in order to transform how you run a business, marketing yourself successfully and better than the competition.

Chapter 3: An Unprecedented Opportunity

¨Great opportunities may come once in a lifetime, but small opportunities surround us every day¨. Rick Warren.

social media advertising


Re-think: Products are not at the core of business strategy anymore, but people´s problems are. A business´s success is determined by how well it solves a person´s problems. Social Media eases the accessibility of people in order to identify their problems, and also to avail them of possible solutions to their problems.

Section 3: Strategy

Chapter 4: It´s Very different to What You Might Think

¨The secret of business is to know something that nobody else knows¨ Aristotle Onassis.

social media advertising


there are 7 stages of a traditional business which are:

1. The right niche.

2. Evaluate your ideal customers.

3. Target the right traffic.

4. Help them for free.

5. Immediate upsell offer.

6. Nurture your list.

7. Know your numbers.

The current day re-think is to focus on people´s urgent problems and solve them, then you will be rewarded.

Chapter 5: You Must Learn For The Right To Earn

Ïf you think education is expensive, try ignorance¨. Derek Bok.

social media advertising


Paul contrasts the traditional view to go to school, do well in exams and find a job which will set you up for life.

The Re-think is that you must learn for the right to earn. Financial freedom is possible with education, coaching, incremental improvement and consistent action in order to reach the maximum potential.

Section 4: Tactics

Chapter 6: Right Niche

Ÿou can have everything you want in life, if you will just help other people get what they want¨. Zig Ziglar.

social media advertising


Contrast the traditional thinking that: You need a great idea about what people need to have a great business: If you pursue your passion the money will inevitably flow.

Re-think: People buy what they want, not what they need. The focus of your business is not you, it is the people who are potentially going to buy your product. If they don’t want it, you don’t have a business.

Chapter 7: Evaluate Who Your Ideal People Are

¨Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together¨, Robert Redford.

social media advertising


Traditional thinking is that one size marketing fits all, you need to get the message out there.

Re-think: The message should perfectly match the right people for our niche.

Chapter 8: Target The Right Free Traffic

¨Stop waiting for the right person to come into your life. Be the right person to come to someone´s life.¨Leo Babauta.

social media advertising


Traditional thinking is that your business should post consistently on social media and offer discounts and sales to get people to buy.

Re-think: Social media should be focused on the user, encouraging engagement and serving their desires.

Part 2: How Do Emotions Lead to Action?

Ïf you want to charge people financially, you need to first charge them emotionally!¨ Paul O´Mahoney.

Traditional thinking: Your goal is to do whatever it takes to get your prospects to take the appropriate action.

Re-think: In order to have your prospects take action, there are a number of emotional factors at play; when you get them right, it will make an enormous difference to your marketing results. Focus on moving people from interaction to conversion then monetization. You need to charge them in order to change them.

Part 3: The Social Youdia Journey.

¨The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step¨, Lao Tzu.

social media advertising


Traditional thinking is to focus on the bottom line, not the relationship.

Re-think: Social Media is not for selling products or services in most instances. It is about creating awareness and building trust over time, ultimately resulting in the person agreeing to move your relationship out of the exclusivity of the Social Media and into another means of personal communication such as email.

Part 4: Your Traffic Options

¨Be patient, everything is coming together¨, Anon.

Traditional thinking: You need to write all your own blogs, and post fresh content every day. You need to be an expert in something in order to blog. From your blogs you will get traffic after ranking in Google.

Re-think: No one cares what you have to say because they would rather listen to and read about people whose brand they trust.

Paul goes on to describe the various media which are available for a business person to deploy and engage with prospects on.

Chapter 9: Help For Free

Öur prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.¨Dalai Lama.

social media advertising


Summary: The premise is that you try to set up a new relationship with a stranger by offering them some help for free, in return for their contact details.

Re-think: Your main goal with Social Media is to build a database. Giveaways do not necessary have a lot of value, depending on how they are marketed. Perceived value may be increased by limiting supply or imposing a close down date.

Chapter 10: Immediate Upsell

Ültimately, the business that can spend the most to acquire a customer wins¨, Dan Kennedy.

social media advertising


Summary: Clarify the value ladder, the next stage is to work out how this material can be delivered efficiently and automatically to our leads.

Traditional thinking: Target people who write books with Google Ads or traditional media and send them directly to our website, which offers a 3-day program for $2997.

Re-think: Lets find out who may be interested by collecting their contact details and then immediately work out if they are a buyer. Then lets build up trust with smaller tiers of lower priced products that continue to increase as we gain an additional ten of commitment each time. Then build up the value proposition as high as possible.

Part 3: Back End Sales

Summary: Once your front end funnel is in place, then the fun begins from a money perspective.

The back end funnel refers to the highest price offering from $500 up to $000´s.

Traditional thinking: Once i have sold my core offering to a customer/client I need to focus on getting more people in the door as leads to keep my business profitable.

Re-think: Unless you have a back end sales funnel in place, you are leaving the vast majority of your profit potential on the table. Set up a value ladder which enables you to add many high value items. Sales funnel software enables the whole process to be simplified.

Part 4: Where Do I Find Products or Services to Sell?

Summary: The immediate upsell is an essential part of a highly profitable online business.

Traditional Thinking: It makes sense to create your own products or provide your own services.

Re-think: There is no need to create your own product or service in order to be successful in business.

Chapter 11: Nurture Your List

Ïf you are not taking care of your customer, your competitor will.¨Bob Hooey.

social media advertising


Summary: After going to the effort of finding a targeted lead and setting up sales funnels, nourishing a relationship with this lead, moving them from a lead to a prospect, to a customer, then repeat customer a client and even an addict is essential for maximizing profitability and client happiness.

Traditional thinking: Lets get our prospect to the finish line as quickly as possible whatever it takes and once they get there its time to find another.

Re-think: Winning in business is a long term play that involves putting people, and specifically relationships with people, first. How well your business deals with your leads passions desires and wants determines how successful your business will be.

Chapter 12: Know Your Numbers

Ïf you can’t read the scoreboard, you don’t know the score. If you don’t know the score, you can’t tell the winners from the losers.¨Warren Buffet.

social media advertising


Summary: Knowing what to measure and making a point of sitting down once a week to review it yourself or with a team will allow you to introduce a feedback loop into the Re-think model resulting in a self-correcting and course adjusting model that the external environment may require.

Traditional thinking: The numbers speak for themselves.

Re-think: Measuring the right numbers and regular reviews will allow you to continue to reduce expenses and increase profitability of your business. Regular reviews are the key to success.

Section 5: Systems and Flowcharts

Chapter 13: Pulling It All Together

Step 1: The Right niche

Step 2: Evaluate Who Your People Are

Step 3: Target the Right Traffic

Step 4: Help For Free

Step 5: Immediate Upsell

Step 6: Nurture Your List

Step 7: Know Your Numbers

¨Doing The Right Thing is More Important Than Doing The Thing Right¨. Peter Drucker.

Chapter 14: Metrics

¨What gets measured gets Improved¨. Peter Drucker.

social media advertising


Summary: Knowing your numbers gives you an awareness of whether you are in a business that has a chance of success!

Traditional Thinking: If you keep your head down and work hard, inevitably it will come good in the end!

Re-think: If you don’t lift your head up and take an overall objective view of your business using metrics designed to focus on key aspects of your business you are most likely doomed to fail.

Section 6: Conclusion

Chapter 15: Key Watch Outs:

¨The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world which is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks¨. Mark Zuckerberg.

social media advertising


Summary: With any business it would be foolish to focus exclusively on your day to day tasks without keeping an eye on the external environment.

Traditional Thinking: In the event of some failures, or warning signals in the online marketing space, it may be time to completely reconsider what you are doing there and possibly abandon it, especially as email marketing is dead.

Re-think: It is important to keep an eye on what potential issues are around the corner for your business. You need to focus on upcoming challenges, threats, weaknesses and opportunities. Get advice from people in the know rather than listening to hearsay and rumours.

Chapter 16: Final Wrap

Ïf someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you´re not sure you can do it, say yes- then learn how to do it later¨. Richard Branson.

social media advertising


Summary: The 7 step process as listed above and how it can be adapted in the world of Social Media.

Paul offers training courses in the Social Media methods which he uses and the cost is 2000GBP for a 4 day course which includes his personal support and mentoring.

OMS Conclusion And Recommendation

We have not tried out Paul O´Mahony´s training courses as yet. He presents good results and is obviously a thoughtful proponent of Social Media for business, even though he confesses to personally not being  a fan of sharing personal information on Social Media.

Paul has obviously put a lot of effort into researching and writing his book Re-thinking Social Media Advertising.

If you have experience of Paul O´Mahoney´s courses or methods and wish to share your review, we would be happy to receive it.

Steven Essa offered  a particularly good deal including many bonuses for free at the Digital Nomads conference organized by Andrew Reynolds on 29 June to 1 July 2018.

OMS Conclusion And Recommendation

We believe that the principle of Videos On Demand is exactly what is needed for internet success owing to the runaway success of video on Social Media channels such as YouTube.

Steven Essa has mastered the art of webinar preparation down to a fine art, and has also developed his own software in order to make webinars, called Webinator software. His system seems to be one of the best available on the internet.

We have not yet tried out Steven Essa´s training but once we have done so we will complete our review of the Money On Demand System.

The alternative of course, if you dont have money to invest in the X10 Effect System is to think through and formulate your own formula for success, using your own expertise, and who knows, it may be a winner!

If, however you do not have the two thousand pounds to invest in buying the Money On Demand system, and you do not have the expertise currently, why not check out this FREE training from Wealthy Affiliate.

OMS Review Of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB)

Introduction To My Dot Com Business (#MDCB)

What Is A Dot Com Business?

Dot-com company – Wikipedia

A dot-com company, or simply a dot-com is a company that does most of its business on the Internet, usually through a website that uses the popular top-level …
dot com business

A Dot Com Business

My Dot Com Business franchise

My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) is an online marketing software system and Multi-Level Marketing business operated by Paul Lynch from the UK.

Paul Lynch claims to have made more than $10m in revenue in the last few years using his proprietary My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) online business system, which he developed himself. He now offers Franchise Memberships of his system for $3000, or Pro Memberships for $77.

Welcome To My Dot Com Business

Disclaimer: This is not a ‘get-rich-quick’ scheme, MLM, pyramid or Ponzi Scheme. This is a genuine business franchise that takes time, investment, work and …

The key attraction to bring in new Franchise members is what is called the Viral Money Effect, which comes from the Multi-Level Sales so that new Franchise Members continually subscribe and make money from commissions for more new members which they introduce to the downline of their own business.


My-Dot-Com-Business (#MDCB) Sign-In

There are more than 500 Franchise Members of the business at the moment and many thousands of Pro Members of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB).

Pro Members can also make commissions from sales which they make, but at a much lower level than Franchise Members.

Franchise Members can make considerable commissions from sales made by their own Pro members, as well as their own sales funnel.

Franchise Members receive a duplicate of the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Website branded to their own chosen company name and personal profile. Initially, this new franchise website is protected within a ´custom wrapper´ from the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) franchise.

Franchise Members are allowed to price some of the products which they sell on behalf of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) themselves, so it enables them to make attractive offers to be made as a Lead Magnet for their sales funnels.

Paul Lynch promised to send FREE traffic to new My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) franchisees to enable them to get started and he promises to get them, 30 new members, to kick-start their business from this free traffic. This is a big incentive regarding an MLM business because it generates some cash flow from the outset.

What Does My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Do?

My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) advertises software products for sale at reasonable prices, and in some cases free, for example:

    • Insta Tsunami (free)
    • One Penny Per Visitor (free)
    • EasySketch Pro Software (various)
    • Sales Funnel Boot Camp (various)
    • Traffic Hacks (various)
    • AutoEmulate Live (various)
    • Tsunami (various)
Dot Com Business

#MDCB Easy Sketch Pro Software

Franchise Members can, in fact, vary the price of the software to suit themselves.

You can join My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) as a PRO Member for a one-off payment of $77.

Alternatively, you can join My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) as a Franchise Member for a one-off payment of $3000.

All New Franchise Members of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) are encouraged to follow the established business and sales system exactly because it works, and they are also encouraged to use the existing sales promotion videos which have been prepared by Paul Lynch, again because they work.

Any New Franchise Members of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) are also encouraged to create their own YouTube channel and to make their own videos of the products available from the franchise and to post them on YouTube, so as to create a following and to create engagement with their own new prospective new online customers, which will be their own downline customers.

My Dot Com Business

My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Self Belief

All Franchise Members of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) are also required to join the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Facebook Group so they can communicate with other Pro and Franchise members and the Headquarters team.

If you decide to sign up to the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) franchise, then you will need to link it to an AutoResponder and email service provider of your choice, such as AWeber, GetResponse, MailChimp or SendLane. The choice is yours but it is suggested that AWeber may be preferable.

Any new Franchisee is provided guidance on how to obtain traffic from Solo Ads, which must be bought from a database of possible suppliers of email list contacts, and step by step guidance is given on how to use this by the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) franchise Headquarters team, and in the training videos.

#MDCB Franchisee Screen

What Are The Drawbacks of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB)?

My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) is essentially a Multi-Level Marketing business, so if you are not prepared to apply yourself to energetically promoting your own business and sales then it may not be for you.

It is suggested that 80 -100 hours are needed every week to get their own My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Franchise started and established. This should be looked on as an investment in the success of the business, so is not necessarily a drawback, unless you do not have that sort of time available, and can’t make the required commitment of time and effort.

Is It Worth Participating in My Dot Com Business (#MDCB)?

Some of the franchise members do make very good sales, so it is clear that the system established by Paul Lynch does work and money can be made, in some cases large amounts of the commission have been paid to some franchisees. What it requires is for members of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Pro and Franchise levels to apply themselves energetically to selling the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) products.

Is Training Provided with My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Pro and Franchise Membership?

There is comprehensive training provided for My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Pro and Franchise Members through a series of videos which are provided to all subscribers. Progress on training is monitored from the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Headquarters so that if subscribers do not complete training, they are reminded to do so via email.

What About Technical Support With My Dot Com Business (#MDCB)?

There is full technical support available to subscribers from the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) headquarters, via a prioritized support ticket system.

OMS Conclusion And Recommendation

OMS has tried out the business system of My Dot Com Business (#MDCB), and it does appear to be successful at every level, depending upon the effort which Pro and Franchise Members apply to make sales. It is a business solely driven by sales and the promise of big commissions for new members, as you would expect from an MLM system. We notice that MDCB claims not to be an MLM system.

We have updated this post because as of 26th February 2018, we had a dispute with MDCB over their promise to send traffic to our site, which we were expecting since early January (2 months previously). MDCB suddenly changed and said they had 6 months to send the traffic, which was not at all stated at the time of initial discussion.

If you are interested in this type of business make sure to get a clear statement from the MDCB about this issue, before committing any money.

There is a lot of Facebook communication from the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) Headquarters in the UK, and the encouragement of members to be active and engage with new members via Facebook. There are daily Live Facebook videos and transmissions from many of the My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) team.

We have looked at many MLM type marketing schemes some of which have been reviewed by OMS. Of the available systems in the marketplace, we think that the franchise from My Dot Com Business (#MDCB) is not one we would recommend, from our own experience.

We have further updated our review on 11th September 2018, to say that we demanded a refund from MDCB as a result of them never ever providing the FREE TRAFFIC which they promised to do when we ordered our franchise in November 2017.

On the basis of our own experience, we do not recommend this product.






OMS Review of AutoEngage Social Media Software

Introduction To AutoEngage Social Media Software

AutoEngage is an online marketing software program produced and marketed by Anthony Morrison of Morrison Education, and its purpose is to automatically message people using Facebook Messenger. It is currently at beta/preliminary version and is being rolled out and released to a very limited number of chosen users, and it is not fully tested and marketed as yet. The software has been developed by and is currently being used by Anthony Morrison in his existing businesses, and has been demonstrated live onscreen to a webinar attended by us and shown and declared to be robust and reliable, but not fully and finally tested by Morrison Education.

social media software

AutoEngage Social Media Software

AutoEngage works in the Social Media environment using Facebook Messenger is the Number 3 App used by people, and there are 1.2 billion Facebook Messenger Users worldwide. 11% of the world´s population have the Facebook Messenger App, and 64% of all Facebook Users have the Facebook Messenger app.

social media software


What Does AutoEngage Do?

AutoEngage automatically responds to incoming messages on Facebook Messenger. It can also be set up to make Broadcasts of automated messages to customers, on the basis of the following criteria:

1. A set date and time.

2. A Step iteration, for example, sends a message 1 day after a customer subscribes, then further stepped communications, at preset time intervals.

3. Recurring Sequence of pre-determined activities.

Any of the above can be set up once only to run automatically thereafter, until re-programmed.

AutoEngage can also check how many of any planned sequence of messages were actually delivered as well.

Built in to the AutoEngage software is a FACEBOOK BUTTON, which a subscriber can hit, which allows them to grant access to their email address which they used to sign up to Facebook, without them having to re-write the email address. This means that the owner or operator of AutoEngage has access to potentially all email addresses of all Facebook Messenger users on their contact list.

So AutoEngage is building two online marketing contact lists, one contact list from Facebook Messenger, and one email list (with email addresses used by customers to sign up to Facebook) as well.

social media software


What Additional Value Does AutoEngage Provide to A User?

With the above capabilities, AutoEngage Social Media Software can be used to make broadcasts to all contacts on the Facebook Messenger and email lists, about forthcoming events.

Using Facebook Messenger, the AutoEngage message is almost certain to be received and read by the customer, because Facebook Messenger messages are opened to a level of 95%, which is more than 4 times the likely open rate for an email communication. There is a higher level of trust with Facebook Messenger users, and the AutoEngage messages are more personal than standardized email sequences.

What this means is that AutoEngage is a game changer in the online marketing software business because there is now no need to use Facebook or Google Advertisements, as a result of the following AutoEngage related actions:

ACTION 1: The user only needs to make Facebook Posts (not pay for Advertisements), and customers or prospective customers can Comment on, Share, or Like these posts.

ACTION 2: AutoEngage messages people directly, and they can Like or Comment, Share or Tag any of these messages.

There is a viral effect of these last two actions, regarding Facebook Posts and the growth as a result of Likes, Shares and comments to other customers, one step removed, which generates a lot more traffic.

social media software


How Much Does AutoEngage Software Cost?

AutoEngage software has only been released by Morrison Education to limited chosen audiences on a beta/preliminary version basis so that Anthony Morrison can work with these new users during the final phases of testing prior to full release to the marketplace.

The offer price when AutoEngage comes to the market is likely to be in the region of $1997, plus The Facebook Messenger Module for $197 per month, plus Agency Access (if required, for use on behalf of other customers) at $197 per month, plus Fan Pages at $67 each.

What About AutoEngage Training?

There is also to be an AutoEngage Software Academy course which is likely to be priced at $1997.

What About AutoEngage Technical Support and Backup?

Anthony Morrison has a team of people developing software and providing technical back up and support to customers, so we believe that the support for AutoEngage will be as good as with all other Morrison Education software products.

OMS Conclusion

OMS has not tested and used this Social Media software! We have seen a live presentation of the AutoEngage software by Anthony Morrison, and have made this report and evaluation on that basis.

Anthony Morrison offered a 60-day guarantee to the limited chosen audience to which he made his initial sales offer of the beta/preliminary version that he would buy back the software from any users who did not find a dramatic increase in traffic and sales if they properly implemented the use of the AutoEngage software. He is obviously very confident of the capability and reliability of the AutoEngage software.

From our assessment of this AutoEngage software, from the presentation and live demonstration given on the webinar, we would NOT recommend purchasing this product if you have the need for Facebook Messenger contact with your potential customers.

We suggest to evaluate along with other available similar packages on the market, to see which best suits your needs.

We have recently changed our view of Morrison products owing to a total lack of Return On Investment over the last 18 months or so, during which we have bought many of his products.
