    Hi Laura,
    Thank you for this excellent timely video with testimonials throughout. I’m curious what your perspective might be on the Stop Online Piracy Act debate. especially in light of your testimonials about the consequences of unbalanced power with little or no just hearing.
    Thank you!

    Your content is as good as anything Kim Komando puts out for online marketers.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on diversifying your marketing platforms. For small businesses who are just putting their toes into the marketing pool, would you suggest we focus our marketing strategy on a small handful of platforms like facebook, twitter, and google to measure the success rates better? Or would you suggest we stick our toes in as many platforms as we can get our hands on and just filter out the ones that don’t grab as much traffic?

    Nice vid, good on you. I had a very successful business in a short period of time and got booted off paypal also for life. Not a nice feeling when I know my calling is doing business online.

    @laurabetterly You’re very welcome Laura, Ron Davies is also looking into using WikiPay as an alternative to PayPal. He’s the one who originally posted your video on his FB wall yesterday. Btw I also repost your video too.

    If you have any questions all my contact info is below the Wikipay video its the featuerd video on my YT channel, or should I call/email you at Yada Yada?

    Well done Laura; The long and the short of it is this; Record 100% of your videos on your own equipment, NOT on things like FB or YouTube create video from webcam. Host 100% of your videos on your blog server. If GoDaddy kills domain, it can be picked up elsewhere. I know this because we manage over 5,000 domains at any one time, and have had numerous server “unplugs” and moves. If it’s yours OWN IT 🙂 …EVERYTHING you post to YouTube or FB is THEIR property, and you have “0” rights to it.

    Great to see you on TV Laura! I think a regular Mobile TV slot would be great :o)

  13. Garycarlyle says:

    @sobelocalmobile companies like paypal own congress.

  14. Garycarlyle says:

    @InternetMktngMinutia i only use godaddy for registration. not hosting. they are not a hosting company really. thats an afterthought for them

  15. glengara says:

    @lifehackertips don’t mind him Laura, I think you’re georgeous, great to see you!

  16. lifehackertips says:

    No offense but you’re hard to look at. Maybe fix the eyebrows and better lighting, more lighting up front would smooth out the scary shadows

  17. laurabetterly says:

    @sobelocalmobile Agreed. I suspect there are some class action suits that will be done because of this at some point. Awareness is step one! Thanks

  18. laurabetterly says:

    @InternetMktngMinutia I forgot about GoDaddy–you’re right. Thanks for adding that info.

  19. edcabreranet says:

    Of course, you’re right about using as many marketing methods as possible. And, there should be some kind of way to deal with these large companies when they arbitrarily shut us down. They make these decisions and many time there is no way to counter or get a fair hearing.

  20. InternetMktngMinutia says:

    Good stuff, Laura. I learned from Mike Filsaime’s Newbie Video Series about GoDaddy abruptly closing domains if someone reports you for spamming – guilty or not. (I moved my domains over to NameCheap thereafter.) I’ve always taken the extra time to use separate email accounts for just about everything – it helps to minimize a ‘chain-reaction account shut-down’ that could occur if only 1 email address was used for several internet services. The same goes for eBay – have multiple accounts.

  21. laurabetterly says:

    @bigbusinesszoo Yes, it’s good to have more than one place for to keep your info..

  22. laurabetterly says:

    @reg5566 Yeah, it’s a shame that a few unethical people ruin it for many.

  23. laurabetterly says:

    @SoCalMarketingOnline I’m glad you’re doing well. Keep up the good work!

  24. laurabetterly says:

    @sobelocalmobile Well, they say they aren’t a bank, but every time I used to log in, they offered me a credit card. The money was one thing, but the subscriptions I lost because that was the only form of payment they took was even worse. It is what it is. The solution is to keep your nose clean and just make more money which is what I’m doing..

  25. sobelocalmobile says:

    Hi Laura! You have many of the sentements I have. This is the United States we’re talking here, but unfortunately, private companies are not beholdant to either the spirit or the letter of the constitution. Paypal is particularly irksome though… I’m banned for life, no reason, no recourse – fortunately I wasn’t in your shoes where I had thousands there. They are a bank as-it-were, but because they are not fully a bank can do whatever they want – congress needs to visit this.
