Web 3.0 And The Features That Wow Many Users

For those who are in the dark, the web has numbered versions. Not too many people know this truth but, a few years back, a guy named Dale Dougherty envisioned Web 2.0. This is despite the fact that the whole world was in chaos because of the crash of the dot-com. People were losing hope that the Internet would ever rise again but Dougherty never gave up. The Web 2.0 Conference in 2005 gave way to the birth of the World Wide Web.

Web 2.0 has come to depict practically each site, technology, or service which are promoting collaboration and sharing even down to the Internet’s roots. Blogging, tags, wikis, RSS feeds, Flickr, del.icio.us, MySpace, and YouTube were the first fruits. The world has been a witness to the evolution of the Web from its 1.0 phase to Web 2.0. Looking at the great developments on the web’s history, people are wondering what is in store for those who would be able to witness the coming of Web 3.0.

Net technologies are constantly evolving: in the minds of geniuses in universities, in prime corporations, and many other great minds out there. Most of the online population coin the term Semantic web to Web 3.0. This is somehow in connection to Tim Berners-Lee’s invention of the World Wide Web.

Basically, Web 3.0 is a location where web pages are read by machines just like humans read them. This is also a place where search engines abound. Looking at it on a layman’s perspective, it simply means a single database for the whole world (well, this is not quite simple when you begin to fathom the work it’s going to take to make this happen).

Some are skeptical about the birth of this modern Internet idea of Berners-Lee in 2001. He began with an idea where the Semantic Web can have agents that would take care of people’s schedules (even down to the setting of appointments). Semantic web agents can be programmed to do just about anything else (processing of research papers or even booking vacations). All it takes for these agents to become a reality, according to its author, is for the web to be re-annotated.

Nowadays, Web 3.0 is more than just a dream. Official standards which describe the metadata that would make information machine readable are now practically everywhere—they are already in place in RDF (Recourse Description Framework), OWL (Web Ontology Language), there is even a development platform in HP called Jena and structures are to be found in the Spatial database tool of Oracle.

The technology of Web 3.0 is evident in Google Gears which allows users to create web applications even when offline. The Adobe Flash player lets application developers have some access to the microphone and webcam. Pretty soon, it would be possible to drag then drop files from the desktop all the way to a web browser.

More awesome features await those who would want to experience Web 3.0: spectacular graphics, hi-def video and audio, seamless animations, and 3D. The present day’s generations of web front-end engineers are very lucky to have Web 3.0. Fragmentation which could result when technologies skyrocket could be moderated with the use of JavaScript toolkits.

These could very well be the vision that Berners-Lee saw. It’s more than just storing and sharing information now—the Internet could do far more complex actions that would make Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 seem ‘Neanderthal’ in comparison.

WIS-UK 2007 DVDs: At Last! Now You Can Get Them

Greetings Again, People

3 months into ’08 and finally — shame it took this long, with a few tech issues and all — those World Internet Summit UK ’07 DVDs I told y’all about are ready for you to buy and learn from.

Go straight to www.WorldInternetCourse.com for all the details.

This past week the Australian version of the Summit went down in Sydney, featuring copywriting maverick Alan Forrest Smith’s World Internet Challenge to raise big dollars for a rainforest charity. As the 4-Day Event has ended today and featured some of WIS-UK’s speakers, I’m wondering whether it gave the people who attended even more high-value strategies than what my 500-strong group got in Earl’s Court.
Meantime you get to watch and repeatedly absorb the World Internet Summit UK 2007 Home Study Course education on DVD right now:

Information Product Creations: What’s New and What’s Hot!

In today’s world, commodities do not only mean tangible products that are put into everyday use. Today, commodities include knowledge and information, and they too, can be a source of income. Let’s face it – information products are selling like hotcakes (they account for billions of income for thousands of entrepreneurs yearly).

People are willing to shell out money for information because of their thirst for knowledge; sometimes they’re plainly interested in something; or because they have need for certain data. Wouldn’t it be nice to be the one to provide the information that they want (or need) and be able to earn from it. That is what information product creation is all about.

The usual methods of selling information include affiliate marketing, the use of eBay, resale rights, and content sites. One could also opt to create an e-book that people can download at a certain amount. Those who are passionate in sharing their expertise on something could also help train other people by selling training courses online. The possibilities to earn by using one’s knowledge or expertise are limitless.

Perhaps the latest on info-product sales is being able to do business even when you are offline. It’s more like taking your website everywhere, every time. Try taking business cards with you when you are not infront of your computer and distribute it to people that you meet (just make sure that the name of your site is highly noticeable on those cards). It would also be better if the actual look of the website is printed on your business cards.

Added income is possible when an ‘infopreneur’ would take advantage of what’s happening around him at the moment. This means that where there are trends or fads, make the most out of selling information about them. Begin by creating a ‘fad site’ where all your fad information would go.

Another hot item would be speech information during election period. With the many needs for speeches and talks, someone who has absolute knowledge on the creation of a good speech would be making big bucks. Going back on e-books, even if you do not have skills in writing, as long as you could hire someone ‘out there’ to do it for you, you could still earn some great money.

Another great way to earn some extra income is by adding articles to your site. This is one surefire way of getting the attention of search engines out there. It is time-consuming, though, to add hundreds of articles to your site, especially if writing is not your forte.

Now that you know what to sell or what to create, make use of the power of testimonials for the information products that you are selling. The power of the positive words of others who have used the information that you have provided will greatly encourage others to buy it. If this fails, make freebies out of your information products. Give the customers a sip of the beverage that they would surely buy once they get to taste it. For instance, give away a 15-page informational e-book when a customer buys one other e-book from you.

There are so many ways to innovate the creation of your info products. Earning money online with the use of your brain has never been this satisfying.

Web 3.0 and Salesletters: Where the Trends are Taking Us

Sales, whether done online or offline, is all about making the correct pitch at the right moment. It is being able to deliver what the customer wants to feel, hear, think and see. These are the reasons why marketers and advertisers all over the globe spend hours, days, if not months of preparation just to figure out the wants and needs of consumers.

Enter the day of the sales letters. The sales letter is a perfect solution to reach out to the consumers and is also an ideal medium on giving all the details and benefits in a concise form. But this advantage could also become the disadvantage when the sales letter fails to fully explain the benefits (unlike human interaction where questions can be answered by the marketer); or when the consumer would not opt to buy and you wouldn’t even know why; or, worse, not being able to picture what the customer really wants in the first place.

Let’s accept the fact that even the seemingly perfect sales letter will not be able to answer all the consumers’ queries. What could be the ratio of sales to visitors on a certain site? The average is shown at 2 sales:100 visitors! Putting it all ‘in print’ is not enough to convert visitors into customers. Also, people are now more skeptic when it comes to any type of message or letter on the internet. With the skyrocketing number of scams, we cannot blame the consumers.

Well, all those sales letter disadvantages can now be thrown out of the window as the online world paves the way for Web 3.0. Consumers can now ‘interact’ with the marketer through ISLs or Interactive Sales Letters. In layman’s terms, it means a consumer can literally ask questions and the sales letter would be able to provide answers (it’s pretty much like having your own sales team). And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s more to look forward to.

To be able to understand the power of the ‘more effective sales letter’ it is important to define Web 3.0. Semantic Web (also another term for Web 3.0) can be explained in two words—artificial intelligence. It’s the machine thinking like a human being and processing tasks just like a human being would! It’s just the most amazing thing ever to happen to the online world.

With the fusion of Web 3.0 to the once ‘text only’ sales letters, we welcome the era of revolutionized sales pitches. It’s like delivering your most powerful sales pitch infront of hundreds of people all at the same time. Web 3.0 is more focused on the values, authority, and rights because it crushes the very essence of the search engines.

To better explain this notion, let’s focus on the search engines. They can help any marketer succeed but you’ll have to abide by their laws. With the birth of Web 3.0, all this would go away as search engine optimization would give way to content optimization.

And what are the characteristics of the more effective sales letter? It should be, primarily, interactive; vibrant; and reliable. With the power of Web 3.0 to back up any effective sales pitch that you are formulating inside your head, there is no way that the product or service won’t be procured.

Web 3.0 and YouTube: The Ultimate Union

YouTube is a website focused on video sharing. The users can freely upload, watch, and share their videos. This website was created middle of February 2005 by three ex-employees of Paypal; it uses Adobe Flash player in displaying numerous video contents, even film and television clips, and music videos. Even amateur videobloggers can contribute their original works. In November 13, 2006, Google Inc. has closed the deal that made them acquire YouTube (it was a US$1.65 billion deal).

As a rule, the users of YouTube who haven’t registered yet can watch most of the available videos on the site. The advantage of going through the registration is being allowed to upload unlimited number of videos. It was on the second year of YouTube’s operation that posting of video responses and subscription to content feeds have been added to enhance the site’s services.

YouTube is all about expression of one’s self and freedom. Web 3.0 (as most online marketers would refer to Semantic Web) supports just that. It is like going back to the time when the recognition of abilities and skills is the name of the game. The birth of Web 3.0 just paved the way for a much better YouTube.

Understanding how YouTube can be greatly improved can only be done when both Webs 2.0 and 3.0 are fully explained. Picture the world of Web 2.0 as the world of instant messaging, chats, blogs, and numerous social communities. These are massive improvements to the contents of the Web in the past.

There is much hype as to the birth of Web 3.0 and this is not without reason. The heralding of the Web 3.0 is saying goodbye to the concepts of 2D settings, blogs, 2-way webs, wikis, podcasts, videos, social networks and personal publishing. It is giving way to the co-creative and real time world on the Web. It means 3D portals; integrated games, business, and education; profiles that are interoperable; and avatar representations.

To explain in a simpler manner, Web 3.0 will allow avatar representations of humans and these would interact in the world that is the Web. People could meet up, interact, and build relationships with the use of their avatar representations. This means the end of linear thinking and welcoming the world of virtual environments.

To be able to experience all the Web 3.0 features, one has to have decent computers, spectacular graphics, and bandwidth. If not, a cell phone which can support all the ‘new stuff’ that Web 3.0 has to offer would be a nice addition to your growing number of gadgets. YouTube can now be accessed with the use of mobile phones which is a great improvement from merely watching it on the computer screen. But will this make way for a more advanced improvement such as YouTube accounts being fused with avatar representations? We can only hold our breaths until the day that the avatars dominate and control even your YouTube accounts.

There are moral questions to the aspect of having a virtual representation of one’s self. Is it ethical to interact in this manner? Is Web 3.0 really an improvement in our lives or will it lower the morals of individuals? We have yet to see that day but, then again, all issues are debatable, aren’t they?

Making Your Moolah In The Web 3.0 Era

In catching all the cultural chatter about blogs, MySpace, FaceBook and the social networking scene you may have come across, you might have been wondering just which of these things to home in on and how to make money from them; whether you have an existing business (online or offline) or looking to start one.

Going into 2008, the latest developments in social media bring a newer arena – and potential goldmine channel – for entrepreneurs to figure out: Web 3.0

Web 3.0 is a term describing the future of how people and businesses interact online, the next level up from the Web 2.0 movement. If you have an idea for a business and know that the market you’d target has customers meeting regularly on websites like MySpace or Facebook, there is opportunity opening for you to introduce yourself and your products/services to them on a global scale – as long as it’s all OK with how they want to be approached by you as a provider. Get this right and you’ll be seen as a valuable contributor and welcome guest, instead of an unwanted door-to-door pest.

At last year’s World Internet Summit UK in London, top US business coach Sean Roach alluded to this principle when describing how you can cash in while moving with these changes in business and technology. One such way to do that is to meet and socialize with your potential customers and fellow entrepreneurs online as you do in real life. A platform where you’d send audio files, photos or documents giving away heaps of valuable take-&-use information before showcasing your product/service to your prospects; or even talk live via audio/video and say why they should do business with you. Roach’s organization are releasing an example of the above this year in the form of GotAccess.com.

Once you access such sites and have gotten your prospects’ attention, your next task is to remain relevant in their lives. In his recent DTAlpha audios, business optimization strategist Stephen Pierce addressed a rise in companies needing to become the conversation piece in people’s lives according to the value they provide. To stay a part of customers’ regular intake, you and your product/service would be giving them reasons to have conversations with and/or about you. The web 3.0 area will help you in finding out how the people you market to actually live their lives, so you can figure out how and where you can best position your business in them.

Whether starting out or moving forward, doing business without using Web 3.0 would be one of the worst moves to make in ’08 and beyond.

Be smart and catch the ride.

Unlocking The Secret Behind “The Secret”

Hi Again, People

Who hasn’t seen or heard about The Secret on DVD by now?

Well, besides its phenomenal success running into its 2nd Edition, 2007 brought one of the more significant self-development and truth-seeking events to South London on Saturday night 8th December.

That’s when I went to experience the world-renowned author, historian and lecturer Anthony T. Browder and what he had to say on The Secret Behind The Secret.

As Director of the Institute Of Karmic Guidance (IKG), Browder has led the organization to helping the re-discovery and application of the Ancient African history, culture and wisdom within fellow black people the world over from the home-base in Washington DC. This involves challenging the misrepresentations and distortions of Africa that run throughout the media and classroom culture globally.

In this vein, Browder came to the UK for a Winter Tour to address the apparent omissions and short-changing regarding the African origins of the Law Of Attraction (among the other Laws that run with it). That Saturday night he dealt with the untold things behind The Secret, including the fact that the DVD that was released is an edited version of what was covered on Attraction and one of it’s featured experts Esther Hicks had said as much (she reportedly felt uncomfortable with how things were going with Rhonda Byrne’s process and asked to be removed from the 2nd Edition).

What you see up top is the 2-Hour recording of that lecture as was done in the U.S.

Watch it, listen in, ponder what is said and shown.

Then gimme some feedback on it; that’d be appreciated.
