PayPal And Your Business – A Warning

PayPal Can Make Or Break Your Business

Now, I am not one to step in an bash companies for making mistakes as we all make them from time to time and for the most part, I really like PayPal. But…

I have recently been involved with a company that has had their PayPal account restricted without  warning.  When I mean restricted, PayPal is allowing money to go into the account, but won’t let them access it or pay bills out of it or have access to any of the money in the account and we are not talking about a few hundred dollars here but thousands.

Pretty jacked up I know. Now I had heard of things happening like this before, but never had been an eye witness to it.  Now these guys don’t sell anything on Ebay or offer digital downloads or anything and they have been paying $60 per month for Payments Pro and Virtual Terminal for over a year.

The thing that bothers me the most is that they have not been able to get a straight answer out of PayPal for days as to why the account was restricted or what is exactly needed to get it unfrozen.  And they have not been able to talk to an actual person that can tell them specifically what they need to unfreeze the account.  It seems that they had never manually processed a credit card up until now and that apparently triggered it.

What You Should Do

My advice is to use www. to process your credit cards an only use PayPal to take in subscription payments or set up payment buttons if that is the case.  You need to have more than one alternative for bringing in money.  Now this may seem like a pain in the ass, but trust me, it is far better than what I am seeing happening with this company.

Since they do a sizable portion of their business through PayPal, to say that it has hurt their business dramatically is an understatement.

If this can happen to them, trust me, it can happen to you and you need to have a back up plan for funding.  Make sure you look around at and others.

While I have not had problems with my account, this does give me no small concern about what could happen.

To be fair, I will try and contact PayPal and see if I can get the full story.

I will also being doing some research on PayPal alternatives for you too and post them.  Now PayPal may indeed have a legitimate reason to request information from these guys and be that as it may, it is the worst case of customer service I have seen out of a company communications wise in some time.  They have spoken to at least 12 different people and spent hours on the phone trying to get to the bottom of things over the past week to no avail and all they keep getting is a form letter asking for the same info they have supplied several times.  They also got different information from different people about what they should and should not provide informaiton wise.  Like I said, jacked up.

Will keep you posted on this so that you can perhaps avoid this huge pot hole and keep your fingers crossed for them.

99.5 Percent Of Social Media Experts Are Clowns

Internet Experts Usually Aren’t!

This extends to all Internet “Xperts” as I like to call them. Same for offline ones too! And I am not just talking about the newbies here. Everyone is a clown when you first start out, even me. Yes, I blew up clients and myself several times. But you dust yourself off, repair the damage and learn and improve.

But the vast majority of the people in Social Media right now do not know their rear end’s from first base. And I am talking the Big Boy PR firms and the like.

Got to love Gary Vaynerchuk and I could not agree with him more.

And this is a continuation…

And finally this response to some of the feedback from the first video.

Joomla, Drupal, Magneto, VirtuMart, Infusion Soft, AWeber And Other Things I Don’t Use

OK, I have been seeing many people including clients that are using products that I really do not care for and dislike using. Mostly because they are a pain in the ass to use, are outdated, don’t work well, are expensive, or will help them lose money. And if you really hit the jackpot, some of these products all of the aforementioned things.

I just happened to pick the names out that I see most bandied about as the greatest thing since sliced white bread and the ones that my clients seem to have the most trouble with and that ones that I hate to work on these days. The people that say they are great is because they usually have a vested interest or they don’t know any better. 🙂  But I am willing to be convinced otherwise. But, it is going to take a lot, and I do mean A LOT of convincing.

The Easiest Way To Create A Profitable Website

A Profitable Website

This video is best viewed in full screen mode. Click on the icon to the right of the speaker icon above.

I will be doing another video going over the basics of what you need and of course, WordPress is the only content managements system that I recommend these days.

WordPress currently powers 8.7% of all Websites.
WordPress currently powers 56% of all Websites that have CMS or a Content Management System.

You need to be using CMS and WordPress. This should be your Website if you want to make money. If you don’t have a Blog and update your content on a regular basis, you are losing customers, money, and you are getting killed on Search Engine Placement.

Here is the link to the Tour Page with the Buttons That I speak about in the Video as well as a few other sites.

And if you are willing to be a Guinea Pig, you can pre-order the Software that we used to build the sites for only $77 a month and you get a 30 day free trial. No contracts, no commitments. Not only that, but you will get a Shopping Cart, Up-sells, Coupon Codes, Split-Testing,an Affiliate Program, a Membership Program,and an Auto-Responder built in as well. Plus, other great surprises. You can sign up for our Beta launch of LaunchBrain by clicking on the image below. Make sure you put in 21 in the Invited By box.

OK, I am going to go over some of the basics that you need to have no matter what, as well as a number of things that I see big companies and even well know Web Gurus are doing wrong with their Websites in the next video.

These are easily correctable and often overlooked.

Also, for those of you interested, if you don’t feel up to doing a site like the ones I show you in the video, we can do ones like them from turn key (you have to provide the content, although we can create it for a fee if you want) from $1,490 to about $4,900 for most small business sites. Larger sites are more of course. But typically, we are 1/2 to 1/3rd the cost of other solutions. We can also provide turnkey solutions on a monthly basis as well. If you are interested, just contact me and we will get you taken care of right away. Also, we can convert your existing Website to WordPress and LaunchBrain so that it is easy to use and maintain and help make it profitable.

Websites – How To Get Your Site To Make Lots Of Money

This is a topic that I get asked to help more with than any other by far. And even when it is a question about Marketing or Social Media, it all comes back to Websites and making money from them.

Let’s face it, 98% of the Websites out there are not configured correctly for Maximum profits, including this one to be perfectly honest. However, in the next six weeks I am going to be changing my site to reflect and show you how to squeeze every last penny out of your site.

It will actually only take me a couple of hours to change it because of the tools that I use (no, they are not available to the public yet, but I will show you where to get them).

But I want to make the changes to the various components so that you can follow along. I must tell you that I was Ignorant of a lot of these things when I first started. So, no matter what your Marketing or Technical expertise or lack there of, you will be able to make these changes to your site using the tools I will show you all by yourself as long as you have enough computer knowledge to read this post. Or, you can have one of our minions do it for you if you so desire. 🙂 Yes, I know it is a TV, but I like the pic.  🙂

I am going to point out some big mistakes that even many Fortune 500 companies make! This is going to be fun!

And we are not talking about using a crappy free builder or using Yahoo, or anything from 1&1 and the like that can kill your business and you won’t even know it.

So, just wanted to set you up for that.
