Here's an interesting blog post for you..
When videos started to grow popular on the Internet inthe past couple of years, the Internet Marketinglandscape started to change.
Affiliate Marketing was not exempted, either.
The most classic mistake people tend to make inaffiliate marketing is not capturing the opt-in leadsfirst before sending their visitors to the merchant'swebsite.
So what smart marketers often do is that they wouldhave their own Squeeze Page for the visitors to optinto their list, before sending them to the websitethey are an affiliate for.
This is so the affiliate marketer can build his ownopt-in list and do his follow-ups later.
A few but exceptionally smarter marketers, on the otherhand, take this to the next level.
=====> THEY IMPLEMENT VIDEO MARKETING, TOO.
You probably notice most top Internet Marketing expertsare now using videos on their Squeeze Pages. Andsmarter affiliates are also doing the same for theirown, for one obvious reason:
=====> VIDEOS CAN SKYROCKET YOUR TRAFFIC AND SALESCONVERSIONS!
Unfortunately, the problem with video marketing is thatto begin with, you have to know how to make your ownvideos.
And even if you could do your own videos, what if youlearn that the affiliate program doesn't convert wellfor you after all?
Affiliate Power Videos remove all these barriers.
At Affiliate Power Videos, you get 10 unique, highconverting Video Squeeze Pages, and 5 new ones everymonth.
So all you have to do is:
Step 1: join any or all of the listed affiliateprograms (free)
Step 2: Upload the video and squeeze pages to your webhost
Step 3: Start driving in traffic, build your opt-inlist and rake in affiliate sales!
You might be thinking that this is going to be a costlymonthly membership - maybe $97, $197 or even $297 amonth.
You're going to be in for a pleasant surprise -- thisone's on the house (read: zero cost)!

Let me explain by using my latest client's situation as an example heretofore referred to as Mr. Dahellup. Let's make Mr. Dahellup's first name Fed.
I spoke to Fed prior to the storm. He owns two home in the same basic southwest Houston area. One home he uses as rental, the other as primary residence. Mr. Fed has or...had, great credit and has always paid both mortgages on time. Fed's primary home is worth $130,000 with approximately $90,000 remaining in liens against it. As for Mr. Fed's rental property, it has depreciated in value to approximately $55,000 due to foreclosures in the area. It has existing liens against it as well totalling $75,000 which actually makes it upside-down. Fed doesn't mind it's diminished value though, because he has....or had, a tenant who was paying enough to cover the liens plus put a little cash in his pocket. Fed is completely content with paying off his debt. He's a hardworking, tax abiding, law abiding, believer in the free enterprise, U.S. citizen. Then came Hurricane Ike. Ike was a natural disaster no one could predicted. Fed's rental property experienced extensive damage.
Mr. Fed has always kept his insurance current on his property and his insurance company has always seem to be fair and honest so, he wasn't really worried about repairs. To prevent his tenant from being displaced, Fed spent some of his personal cash while waiting on insurance claims to re-imburse him for expenditures. Fed put a ding on his credit with a late payments on his rental property. Fed fell two months behind on his rental mortgage payment. Fed is about to learn a very costly lesson.....which is: "The quality of service rendered by insurance companies quickly diminishes after one needs to file a claim."
Rather than sending the money directly to Fed, the insurance company disbursed the check made payable to Fed and his lien holder. Fed forwards the check to his lien holder explaining that he has already spent some of the funds but needs to complete the work for the house to be habitable. Fed's tenant discovered that some of the water damage behind the walls are developing into mold making the house unsafe. Fed's tenant moves out due to health reasons. Fed's mortgage servicer informs him that because of his arrears, they are not going to release the insurance check to him. Fed can't finish the repairs on his $55,000 home which has a $75,000 lien on it....
I received a phone call....... The individual on the other end of the phone starts by saying, "Hi Mr.Green, I need your help selling my home." I say sure, I'd be glad to! I'm glad you called! Then I ask......"Who is this?" He says, "It's me, I'm Fed Dahellup!".....
In these cases, no one wins..... all because of some clerk collector not looking at the whole picture.
Sure, I'll do what's best for my client. In this case probably a short sale in the amount of $40,000 will be in order. The sale amount needs to be low enough to excite investor money. Heck at that price I might even buy it. Mr. Fed's position is to just give it away to who ever wants it. He's tired of messing with them. I'm gonna personally go to bat for him and begin talks with these crazy entities. Keep you posted.....

Mortgage applications more than doubled in the holiday week ended Nov. 28, the Mortgage Bankers Association said Wednesday, as government bailouts led to sinking interest rates. In the weekly report, the Market Composite Index - the association's measure of mortgage loan application volume - surged 112.1% on a seasonally adjusted basis from the week earlier.
Rates plummeted following the Fed's announcement that it would buy debt and mortgage-backed securities from mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, according to Orawin Velz, associate vice president of economic forecasting, in a statement.
"Many of those on the sidelines decided to quickly jump in and take advantage of lower rates before they began to rebound," Velz said. The Mortgage Bankers Association said 30-year fixed-rate mortgages fell to 5.47% this week. That's was down from 5.99% last week. Rates on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages fell to 5.13% from 5.78%, the report said. The rate on a one-year adjustable-rate mortgage declined to 6.61% from 6.87%.

How does one protect him or herself from the effect of such an anfractous economic market? By sticking to the basics. Buy for one and Sell for two. Don't stay on the sidelines....like the Lottery motto, "You gotta be in it, to win it!". I talked to one of the manager's in the U.S. Postal system. She told me something that real got me thinking. She said that every 1 cent increase in gas prices equated to about 500 million in Postal Service operational overhead. Granted, this conversation took place during the height of our recent inflated gas price ordeal. But think of it...if that's the case for the Postal Service, then what will be the effect of recent lowered gas prices on the overall national economy? It has to be monumental! I started a thread in BiggerPockets a while back on the gas prices issue and was amazed at some of the posts I received. It was a real eye opener.
Here's a few facts that might make the astute investor consider the possibility of real estate as a viable alternative to the current market instability.
- Current mortgage rates are at a 30 year low. Money for qualified buyers is cheaper than it's been in 30 years.
- Existing real estate to include new construction is on the average 22% less than true values and many sellers are more than negotiable.
- The decreasing cost of gasoline is equivalent to approximate 300 billion dollars worth of economic stimulus.
The past economic melt-down was signaled by distinctive signs. Even so the U.S. market has began it's natural process of cicatrization. My suggestion is strike while the iron is hot and leave the hackneyed excuses to the faint at heart. I think it was Warren Buffet who said that he reacts with caution when others are greedy and forges forward courageously when the multitude cringes in fear. It's good advice! The time to act is Now! Don't wait too late!

I sell real estate and mortgage products. I'm going to tell you that the best place to put you money is in real estate. That's a given! Car Salesman will tell you that the best time to purchase a new car is now. Even though the stock market is experiencing a major meltdown, Stock Brokers will tell you that the best place for you money is in the market. You be the judge.
I'm reminded of a lesson I learned as a youth. Never want the wares presented to you by a con-artist. Don't envy the wealth of another. Don't desire the wine when it's calling you even though it looks such a nice red in the glass.
The key to this market in my opinion is to go against the grain. Deuteranopia blocks out the tendency of an individual to be attracted to green. It actually blocks out the ability to distinquish colors in the green, yellow and red hues. Greed and envy is often characterized by the color green. The color yellow is often attributed to fear and everyone knows that red is sometimes used to represent hate. Let us all desire a taste of Deuteranopia in this current market. Not falling for false promises, free from fear, and not allowing past failures or broken promises of pie in the sky to stop us from achieving a successful destiny. I thought it was a funny analogy using colors.
As for where I would put my money......real estate in traditionally stable markets! I also recommend that you invest in eternal projects. I have always contended that the best place to invest is in one's own family. Or, I don't know how many of you readers believe the Bible. Myself, I'm a Christian and believe much can be learned in relation to financial matters from scripture. I think this current market will correct itself eventually. What we're currently seeing is the framework being laid for a coming global joining of three major components...economics, political and religious. With that in mind I recommend another temporarily safe place to put you during this transition which is gold and silver. But bare in mind that the fulfilling of God's word spoken in the Bible in the Book of James 5: 1-5 will surely come to pass. Take a few minutes to read it if you can spare the time.

Layan Gardens is a premier Phuket apartment complex for good reason. Layan Gardens has been constructed by Dufor Development, an established UK builder based in Thailand, has spacious, well designed apartments with balcony views of rolling green hillsides, azure lakes and spectacular sunsets and the apartments are only minutes away from some of Phuket's finest local amenities.
Layan Gardens is comprised of 40 luxury apartments in five buildings on six acres. Each Phuket apartment has three metre high ceilings and spectacular views. The development comprises of 4 apartment layouts; the remaining available apartments are the 3 bedroom Enlarged and Standard. All the penthouses and 2 bedroom apartments have now been sold.

I often send out generic e-mails to short-sale, pre-foreclosure, and foreclosure listed properties asking whether or not they would consider even further discounts off the listed extremely short, short price. Occasionally, they respond with YES!!! PLEASE SEND US AN OFFER!!!
I'm currently working on a transaction where the builder really doesn't care what the selling price is. He stated that whatever the lender would approve as a short sale, he would be willing to sign off on. So I'm recommending that all of my potential customers make sure to purchase properties well under value in traditionally stable areas also be prepared to hold on to properties for at least 5 to 7 years.
Here's an article containing some great purchase tips!
Buying Smart(Housing : U.S.) 10/31/2008
SAN ANTONIO (San Antonio Express-News) – Those wishing to buy a home under the current economic conditions may be glad they did, as long as they are wise in selecting their location.
Barry Nystedt of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents predicts that values in many coveted communities very gradually will begin rising during the next six to 12 months. In areas where the economy is weak, however, he says prices could remain stagnant for three years or longer.
“Right now there are too many properties for sale in lots of places. But in areas where inventories are starting to tighten, you should soon begin to see signs of recovery,” he said. Industry experts give homebuyers a few things to consider when selecting a neighborhood. Among the things a buyer should look for are:

Recently I held an open house on one of my rentals. One of the viewers told me that she needed to move quickly and wanted me to help her locate a rental home. After working with her for a couple of days, I discovered that she currently owns a home that she's going to walk away from because of two reasons.
1. An adjustable rate mortgage continually going upward.
2. Not being able to refinance due to market changes.
She also feels like the area that the property is located in is depreciating due to nearby foreclosures.
I took a look at the numbers and guess what? The numbers state that this is a great property to hold on to. This is a great property for someone looking for a short purchase. If you want to stay updated on this property drop me a quick e-mail.

For those that want to hold on instead of flip, this property has strong rental potential @ over 3200 square feet. With this subdivision's hot rental market demanding 59 cents a square foot, this property is a real gem coming in at over $1,900 per month.
There's plenty of room in this one. Email me for further details.

Houston, Sugarland, Baytown’s $325.5 billion Gross Area Profit (GAP) for 2006 was more than Austria’s, Poland’s or Saudi Arabia’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In 2006, Forbes Magazine ranked the Houston Metropolitan area as the third best places in the U.S. for businesses and careers.
Houston’s major industries are Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Engineering, Real Estate, Medicine, Biotechnology, Aerospace, and Marine Science. There is no state or local personal income tax. Sales Tax is 8.25%. Even the horrific collapse of Enron has not prevented Houston from ranking among top three cities for investing in downtown redevelopment projects.
I once felt that legislators missed the boat when introducing 80% maximum LTV of appraised value for cash-out refinancing. That same requirement has helped Texas homeowners retain large amounts of their home equity during the current mortgage sub-prime meltdown.
Many foreign investors are taking advantage of weak U.S. dollars and strong Houston real estate values to reap huge rewards. Read More......

Lower Your Monthly Payment!
I was passing out flyers today when I was stopped by a lady wanting help. She, like many other hard working americans was experiencing the backlash from the Sub-Prime Mortgage Meltdown. As we talked I started to recognize a repetition of circumstances leading up to her current plight. She was a UPS employee who had purchased a home using a ARM with marginal credit. Now that the Sub-Prime market no longer existed, she was trapped with a product due to continually adjust until it reached it's cap.
To better understand the damage done by the withdrawal of sub-prime mortgage products, let me take a quick minute to give a quick over view of the sub-prime customer grading profile. The quickest way to understand sub-prime is to understand what is not sub-prime. Mortgage loan qualification is based on various factors. Each factor must meet certain guidelines. Those factors are 1. Income as it relates to debt. 2. Credit. 3. Job history. 4. Rental History. 5. Downpayment. Conventional lending or Prime lending requires that each of the aforementioned criteria must adhere to certain guidelines i.e. 1. Income depending on the type of mortgage product, ......not more that 17% of your income can be absorbed by your mortgage payment including principle, interest, taxes and insurance. This is called front end debt to income qualification. Back end debt to income qualification dictates that no more that 36 to 42% of one's income can be exceeded towards any long term debt (Long Term = debt with more than ten months worth of payments remainding), including one's mortgage payment.
Anyway without being too detailed suffice it to say that Prime Lending adheres to stricter guidelines than Sub-Prime. To abbreviate the Sub-Prime over view, let me simply state, under th past sub-prime guidelines, any one of the five (5) required Prime criteria could be ignored as long as the other four were met. Sometimes, depending on the strength of a certain factor, even more of the others can be ignored. For instance, if the client's credit is strong enough, he or she didn't need a job. Or, if the downpayment was large enough, he or she didn't need a social security number.
For over 13 years I personally originated sub-prime products. When many of my clients found themselves burdened under unbearable mortgage payments, I vowed to discover a way to help relieve the pressure of accelerating monthly payments. I looked into loan mitigation and mortgage loan modification for our property. I was not able to save our rental properties but, I was able to lower the payment on our personal dwelling and obtain a 3% interest rate. This is the secret that Investors and Lenders don't want you to know. I don't have a mortgage calculator within reach while I'm writing this article. Actually I don't feel like getting up and getting one. But, I'm going to use a general example so that you can get the jist of this concept. With a fully amortized mortgage loan $200,000 paid off in 30 years @ 8% could easily amount to over $500,000 dollars. The same principle amount repaid at 3% equals a little over $300,000. The secret is that under the current mortgage and economic crisis, lenders are willing to settle for the lesser amount as an alternative to foreclosure. Let us show you how it's done. On a $200,000 mortgage, it could mean the difference between a $1400 a month payment and a $800 dollar a month payment for the same house. NOTE: Credit is not a criteria.
We all know that life is unpredictable, and that circumstances often arise that can prevent you from making your mortgage payments.
Even hard-working people can encounter unforeseen situations which may affect their ability to pay their mortgage in a timely manner. Many issues can be contributing factors such as temporary job loss, medical illness or injury, marital difficulties, unforeseen repairs or high utility rates, tenant problems, or even a death in the family. Just one of these situations can have a direct bearing on making home mortgage payments.

Today while going thru my e-mail, I noticed a message containing a newsletter from Biggerpockets. I thought to myself how pleasantly surprised I was when I received a phone call and a chat from Joshua this weekend. By the way, if you are involve with real estate, mortgages, investing or property management and are not a member of Biggerpockets I highly recommend that you join. It is the premier real estate online community. Anyway, I found the following items in the newsletter rather interesting and wanted to comment.......
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will scrutinize the compensation and retirement packages of one chief executive and two recently deposed CEOs of companies ensnared in the mortgage crisis. The witness list includes: Angelo Mozilo of Countrywide Financial Corp., the nation's largest mortgage lender; Stanley O'Neal, formerly of Merrill Lynch & Co.; and Charles Prince, formerly of Citigroup Inc.
What does scrutinize mean?
On another note.... Bank Iacocca is proposing that American Tax payers subsidize it's bad debt via the formation of The Federal Homeowners Preservation Corporation. Everyone in the industry knew that B of A needed to buy a clue when it came to Sub-Prime Financing. So, what did they do instead? They made bad loans to Countrywide then bought the doggon kit and kabodle. Unbelievable!
Those of us who have been in the industry for any length of time are personally acquainted with the underhanded tactics used by Countrywide. They were known to manipulate and steer potential buyers. They inflated appraisals and property values. They stole commissions from their own in house staff who in turn stole deals and sold them to the highest bidding non-affiliate Broker.
During the beginning of the end Countrywide informed it's department that worked on re-fi leads generated by credit inquiries, that they would have to continue making the same amount of bricks without Countrywide's supply of hay and mortar. Countrywide allowed them to work the trash while housing the good deals.
This deal that Bank Iacocca is proposing just does not give me that warm fuzzy feeling. Read More....

With all the concerns over imported seafood, my wife and I have become a little more finicky about imported seafood. So I have started reading the container labels and doing some studies in an effort to learn where my seafood is coming from. DUH! It's sorta like gambling.....you always do better before you learn how.....lol.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - US grocery chain Trader Joe's said Monday it would stop selling food imported from China due to customers' concerns about the products' safety.
"Our customers have voiced concerns about products from this region and we have listened," Trader Joe's spokeswoman Alison Mochizuki said in a statement.
"All single ingredient food items sourced from mainland China sre scheduled to be out of our stores by April 1," she said.
"We will continue to source products from other regions until our customers feel as confident as we do about the quality and safety of Chinese products."
A series of consumer scares last year involving harmful products from major exporter China, including seafood, cat food, medicines and toys, led to mass product recalls and the tightening of US safety regulations.
Trader Joe's, which focuses partly on selling organic food, was founded in California in the 1960s.

Investors have been in the market for rehabilitating properties for years now. New buyers have entered the rehab market of late, however, and they are not in it merely for fun or profit. These buyers are looking at foreclosed-upon homes, even ones that need fixing up, to move into themselves.

Yesterday I was on Loop 610 between Hwy 290 and I - 45N when all of a sudden it turned into a parking lot. I was sure there was a major accident ahead. Nope....., everyone was looking at workers installing a New Hospital sign off on the feeder (access), road. What's funny is after discovering that there was no blood and guts, drivers continued to proceed slowly as if they had been cheated out of some morbid spectacle. Another day in Houston.

It's unbelievable how so many individuals are offered print space and air time to discuss subjects that they appear to know little about. First of all in my opinion, it's not a crisis but a business correction cycle which can be avoided no more than any other business cycle. One could only hope to lessen the negative affects. Seems to me that an economics professor would or should know that. When profit is present in a sector....fools rush in. This usually tends to drive down profits along with competence. Eventually that same sector will correct itself causing fools to rush out....lol
These writers must be in their early twenties, or is the article designed to dumb down the American Public? If you are older than 40 or studied a little history, I'm sure you know about the lending correction cycle of the mid to late 80's with it's high forclosures and noose bleeding interest rates. Yeoooowww! Then the scapegoat was Reaganomics. Today's scapegoat is the Mortgage Lenders and the Brokers. Who will be tomorrows scapegoat?
Secondly mortgage borrowers can't be stereotyped into one specific group. The mortgage borrower profile varies on a spectrum diverse as the homes themselves, with factors ranging from income, credit, locale, race, age, marital status, and sex.....just to name a few. The buying motivators themselves range from, "if my pet or cat likes it I'll buy it," to "if I can just somehow afford the payments for a short while I buy it". One must consider the motivation of the Mortgage Lender as well. They have different motivators for making monies available...........not always profit....supprise! During the lending haydays, my wife and I would often joke after closing a loan on some dubious buyer with comments like, "I guess the mob needed to show a loss."
Maslow's Law states that people will always aspire to obtain a place to dwell and call home. For this reason the Mortgage and Real Estate Industry will always be a vital, vibrant, intricate part of American Economics.
