Mobile Media Millions Review- Now or Never for Internet Marketing?

(PRWEB) September 27, 2012

Mobile Media Millions is a training and software platform which purports to offer users a method and system upon which to score consistent revenues by using a cell phone. Internet marketing has become extremely popular in recent times, and mobile marketing leaves the immobility of the standard computer in the dust with its innate quality of portability.

Writes John Taggart of, "I know I'm not alone in being a cell phone junkie. How do I know this? Because I have two eyes, and when they are not glued to my obnoxious phone they bear witness to everyone around me doing the same thing - punching phone buttons at ball games and practices, parking lots, stoplights, etc. We all use our phones like its our last chance to connect with civilization. Mobile Media Millions promises to help its users turn their phones into little money-making machines".

Taggart continues, "Meanwhile, don't we all complain about wanting to make more money at some point? And, haven't we all noticed, to some degree, how certain friends, family, or acquaintances seem to be "making money online"? How do they accomplish this? Affiliate marketing, aka online marketing, aka affiliate reselling, etc".

Because of mobile portability, mobile device marketing has stormed the arena to capture five times as much affiliate marketing volume as the cord-to-wall computer. The Mobile Media Millions logic continues, "so, what we know about conventional 'internet marketing' is apparently becoming fossilized, relatively speaking, because we spend tons more time on our phones than at the computer". Maybe this can be compared to a transition like DVD to Blue Ray?

A final note from Taggart: "As much time as we spend on our phones and because of the fact that we carry them EVERYWHERE, it only makes sense that those looking to "make money online" step up to the cutting edge of the affilate market and embrace the medium which is five times as effective as the computer, which had formerly been the convention".

In other words, mobile marketing is the new internet marketing, it seems.

Mobile Media Millions is one way to get started, fresh on the market as of September 20, 2012.

Mobile Media Millions enables affiliate marketers to tailor their internet marketing efforts to mobile device settings, effectively establishing a "portable" affiliate marketing business. Users will learn how to quickly and easily implement key fundamentals such as niche research, smart domain selection and hosting, effective sales methods, compilation of mobile numbers to which to sell, setting up cash funnels, attracting traffic, and setting up social media links.

The actual training comes by way of video demonstration, using a combination of graphics, screen shots, and verbal and written step-by-step instructions.

Also available (as upsells) are the Mobile Media Millions Pro Software, which automates and streamlines the entire process, and the Affiliate Cash Cloner, which integrates affiliate platforms (ex, Clickbank) while allowing the user to pull in articles and stagger-schedule postings.

All of these things and other periphery are available to subscribers in the MMM Members Area.

Beta-testing was very promising, per the Mobile Media Millions creators and beta users. Now, the honeymoon is over and the product is live.

Click here for the Mobile Media Millions website or HERE for the review. is a broad-sweeping review site, where author, editor, and person of many interests John Taggart shines the limelight on products of every persuasion. John has always been a bit of a Renaissance Man and seems to have a knack for nuance, so we suggest you tune in when he profiles a product for review!

A2Z Keywording Launches Keyword Perfect? 2.0 Image Tagging Studio to Ensure Photography Professionals Are Never at a Loss for Words

A2Z Keywording Launches Keyword Perfect™ 2.0 Image Tagging Studio to Ensure Photography Professionals Are Never at a Loss for Words

Tivoli, NY (PRWEB) October 18, 2010

A2Z Keywording, specialists in the practice of professional image keywording, today announced the launch of Keyword Perfect™ 2.0, a highly efficient sales tool that enables photographers, stock photo agencies, archivists and other imaging professionals to tag their photo libraries using a comprehensive dictionary of searchable keywords, ensuring that their images are as accessible as possible to potential buyers. First developed as the in-house engine around A2Z Keywording's successful keywording service, Keyword Perfect is now available to pro photographers as a means to quickly input relevant tags and, with a minimum of keystrokes, generate dozens of associated keywords that make their work more likely to be identified by stock agencies and other image buyers.

Attendees of the PhotoPlus Expo (Oct. 28-30, 2010, New York) are invited to visit the A2K Keywording booth (#177) to view demonstrations of Keyword Perfect and obtain trial versions of the software.

With an easily mastered user interface running on top of a powerful platform that includes A2Z Keywording's proprietary keyword dictionary and thesaurus, Keyword Perfect imports digital images into its workspace and displays them in a convenient filmstrip pane. Users can then keyword each image by selecting any number of pre-defined and/or user-generated tags, representing not only the image's physical contents, but also its less tangible elements such as time of day, photo style, concept, emotion and activity. The keyword engine then reads each assigned tag and adds a number of logically associated keywords, eliminating significant input time while ensuring that the images are thoroughly and accurately identifiable to discerning image buyers.

"After all the time, effort, and emotion that goes into creating great images, properly editing them and preparing them for the market, photographers still need to ensure that their images will be seen by potential buyers, regardless of how broad or specific a search those buyers might conduct," said Alexander Zane, president of A2Z Keywording. "The only way to ensure maximum success is to tag each image comprehensively, but no photographer wants to spend precious hours manually keywording or fumbling with a dictionary and thesaurus. With Keyword Perfect, we took the system we used to produce accurate keyword matrices for as many as 200,000 images per year and made it available to everyone. We're confident that the results will be a true revelation to both veteran photographers and those new to image tagging."    

As more photographers make their work available to image buyers and additional content floods the marketplace, it is absolutely vital to properly keyword images to ensure they are searchable by the most appropriate audience. To increase the accuracy of Keyword Perfect, A2Z Keywording developed a powerful set of automated checks that guide users through a structured review of their work to catch oversights or inconsistencies. This feature, comprising more than 300 individual checks, helps avoid the human errors that are common in manual keywording. And since Keyword Perfect manages keywords in a central dictionary and reviews all work in a structured process, it delivers an unsurpassed level of consistency.

"A2Z Keywording has long provided a critical service to stock houses like ours by keywording large batches of images quickly and accurately, and I admit that I've been somewhat envious of their capabilities in the past," said Monika Mosch, managing director of the stock agency goZOOMA. "With Keyword Perfect, anyone who relies on high keyword quality can achieve professional results in less than half the time it would take to input manually. The software is powerful, yet easy to work with; clearly A2Z Keywording has honed this product to meet the specific requirements of both photographers and image consumers who search through large volumes of stock images."

Pricing, Availability and System Requirements

Starting today, Keyword Perfect is available for purchase at at a list price of $ 249.00. A special introductory launch price of $ 199.00 is available through Dec. 31, 2010 and a free trial version is available.

-- PC Requirements: Windows XP, Windows Vista recommends utilizing a quad-core processor. Minimum 2 GB RAM, recommended 3 GB.

--Apple Requirements: Intel Macintosh 2.5 GHz dual core CPU with 2GB minimum RAM (4GB is recommended) running Mac OS 10.5.x (Leopard).

--Minimum 15-inch monitor.

Never Outgrow Your Docking Station or USB Port Replicator Again

(PRWEB) July 20, 2005

For too long, mobile computing users have relied on a proprietary docking station to quickly connect their laptops to a printer, network, external monitor, or other peripherals at the office or home office.

The problem: a proprietary docking station must be replaced each time you upgrade your laptop or notebook PC, an expensive and wasteful proposition. Until now, alternative USB-based port replicators while non-proprietary, haven’t functioned with a Video Graphics Array (VGA) connector. And KVM switch capability - which enables users to share peripherals between two computers such as a notebook and desktop PC - has largely been missing, thus complicating mobile computing tasks at home and the office.

Fortunately, you’ll never outgrow your docking station or port replicator again, thanks to the new UniXpress USB Port Replicator from Addlogix of Irvine, Calif., which offers one-step peripheral hookup, KVM switch capability, and VGA support.

Mobile computing users simply connect peripherals such as VGA display, Ethernet, speakers, and printers to UniXpress, which works on any Windows-based notebook or PC, and these peripherals would interface with the computer via a single USB cable.

Unlike proprietary docking stations, when upgrading to new computers, there is no need to replace UniXpress as long as the new computers are equipped with USB interfaces.

“UniXpress bridges the worlds of VGA, USB, and non-USB computer peripherals to the notebook with a single cable,” says Matthew Chang, Addlogix Marketing Manager. “For the first time, users have KVM capability, can achieve 1280 x 1024 resolution via USB-connection, or even use a third screen without adding a video card.”

With UniXpress’s KVM capability, users can control two computers with a single keyboard/monitor/mouse set and switch peripherals with a single button-push or hot-key combination. This simplifies access to peripherals without requiring tedious multiple cable connections or rebooting the computer to add or remove devices.

Through UniXpress, users can also add a second monitor without installing video graphics cards; for computers that already support dual displays, a third screen can be added. This means that mobile users will have a much larger screen to work with. For example, multiple software applications can be running at the same time without being on top of each other.

In addition, UniXpress’s VGA port provides a benefit normally reserved for high-end video graphics cards – three modes of video support:

1) Extended mode (doubles the workable desktop space, which allows different applications to be running on each screen - a real help to multi-taskers)

2) Primary mode (allows use of a larger desktop monitor in place of the smaller notebook screen)

3) Duplication mode (the same image appears on the notebook and second or third computer monitor)

Comparable to a top [docking station], UniXpress is the only USB-based port replicator that supports video resolution of 1280 x 1024, which provides better visibility on data intensive applications than smaller resolution displays. It is also the only port replicator that supports primary mode, convenient when use of a larger external monitor is preferable to a smaller screen. Its patent pending graphics engine also offers DVD playback on a notebook or desktop PC.
