Was Elvis Presley More Famous Than Lady Gaga?

Was Elvis Presley More Famous Than Lady Gaga

By Tony Cordingley

Lady Gaga (Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) is certainly famous, but is her "Fame" built to last? She has done interviews where she has spoken about "Decay" and how people today like to see famous people fail and end up in the gutter. She speaks of how we live in a time where we crave for drama. Like it's not enough to just become famous then grow old gracefully, we need our famous people to fall off their perch and die disgracefully, drunk, drugged, or falling out of nightclubs vomiting all over the place then choking to death on it sometime through the night, as many previous famous people have done.

A lot of her music is certainly very enjoyable, "Bad Romance" is certainly a very catchy enjoyable recording, although when I first heard the opening lines I found it a bit irritating, but it soon grew on me and she looked great in the video! She likes to create controversy, like in her video for "Paparazzi" where she is apparently pushed over a balcony after being snapped by photographers. But is Lady Gaga more famous than Elvis Presley? Well, we will probably have to wait until she fails and dies before we know that. Perhaps one day as she says, the public will get their thrill by reading about how she choked on her own vomit, died from a drug overdose, or stumbled drunk out of a nightclub into the path of a bus, then and only then will we know! Will her fans for countless years after her death make a pilgrimage to her present home just to celebrate the fact she ever lived, as they do with Elvis?

In the meantime, Lady Gaga very cleverly creates and courts controversy, not just in her videos, but in other ways, like for instance the "Lady Gaga Hermaphrodite Rumour" which I have no doubt is total rubbish. If it were true you can be sure that the "paparazzi" would have somehow uncovered medical records to prove the fact.

Lady Gaga is definitely not a one hit wonder, she has already proven that. And fame for Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta did not come instantly either. She has worked hard for her position at the top of the charts, she has studied, recorded, failed a few times, made a few sacrifices for the sake of her own principles, and finally found the fame that she, and let's be honest, everyone wishes for. The difference between people like Elvis Presley and Lady Gaga is that they have an uncontrollable drive to be recognised, to be proved right, to show everyone that they were different from everyone else, not freaks, not oddities, but talented people, people with an unquenchable thirst for fame.

Thank God there are people like her around! Imagine how boring the world would be if everyone was just like you and me. We dream of fame and yes fortune too, but at the first, or maybe second hurdle, we give up and go and get a normal job in a factory or office. That is the difference between me, you, Elvis Presley, Lady Gaga and every famous person you see in concert, on the television, in a film, or on the news. They had the energy, the self belief, the determination, to stay the course. That is why we worship these people, because they truly are different from us, we are the freaks!

So, back to the original question, is Lady Gaga more famous than Elvis Presley? I think it is very unlikely that Lady Gaga will ever become a legend in the same way that Elvis Presley did. Lady Gaga is basically following in the footsteps of people like Madonna, who in turn followed in the footsteps of groups like Bananarama, who in their turn followed in the footsteps of their own idols. But Elvis Presley actually helped to launch a system of music which eventually became known as "Rock and Roll" and without Rock 'n' Roll, it is very doubtful that any of today's music artists, including Lady Gaga, would ever have existed, at least in their present form, because whether they know it or not, and I'm sure they do, they have all been influenced in some way by Rock and Roll and therefore Elvis Presley, which in my book makes Elvis Presley more famous than Lady Gaga!

Lady Gaga and Elvis Presley couldn't be further apart as far as music styles are concerned, but in the history and evolution of music, artists like Lady Gaga owe their existence in the music world to people like Elvis Presley.

Other Peoples Problems and Your Internet Business

Other Peoples Problems and Your Internet Business

By Tony Cordingley

Your first task is to find a way to help people to solve their problems. The problem might be personal like a weight problem, or it could be financial, where they need to make a little extra money each month. Whatever the problem is, finding a workable solution could be your road to riches.

A very good way to find out what people consider a problem is to visit the online forums. People talk about anything and everything online. They discuss subjects that they wouldn't talk about with their best friends for the simple reason that they can remain anonymous. They look for solutions online for the very same reason. By visiting forums and taking note of what people are most concerned about you can search the Internet for products and services that will help them solve those problems. Gather the information about the topic. Write or have written for you articles about the topic. In this way you can find a topic and build a content-rich website for niche marketing that helps with the problem you have identified and that will serve the needs of people.

A good place to gather info is your local bookstore. Take note of which type of non-fiction books that are stocked. You should particularly note the ones that are self-help or how-to books. Make it your business to find out which products are selling the most. Ask the stock keeper. He's the one who knows what is being restocked most often. That failing, ask a floor salesperson the same question. Asking the bookstore owner or manager is the last option. They are more likely to be pushing the books that aren't selling well in order to make a sale. Learn by whatever means you can which self-help or how-to books are the hottest sellers.

Once you have chosen a product or service to market, researching to find the right niche for your product or service is the next most important part of beginning a niche marketing program. Find out what makes people tick from a personal point of view, and the best way to do that is to find out which forums they visit online. There is lots of help out there to help you with your potential niche market. It is easy to find niche marketing software.

Why Niche Marketing is the Way to Go in Succeeding Online

Niche marketing must be designed to meet the unique needs of the targeted audience. Niche marketers must tailor their product to meet those unique needs. If, for example, you have designed a product to make poodle grooming easy enough for the untrained professional to do it, those who own poodles will be most interested in your product. Those who own Blood Hounds or cats couldn't care less. If you have written an e-book that will explain how to start and succeed at an online business, those who are looking for that information are your niche market. Those who are happy doing what they are doing are not interested at all.

When you have an idea and have done the research that has proven that there is a market for your informational product, the rest is just a matter of creating the product, building a great website and advertising it.

Niche marketing is not about trying to compete. Competition is taken out of the equation when you do niche marketing. You aren't out there in the world lined up beside or behind a million other people who are selling the same thing you are selling. You are selling to a specific audience that you have created for yourself with your website or through your opt-in email list.

The trick to making money from a content rich niche marketing website is to have a topic that helps people solve their problems, makes them feel better or look better, or supplies them with information that they need. You will need to have related products and services advertised on your site since that is where the income actually comes from. The website content is what makes people visit your site again and again. The more content rich it is will determine how often they visit and how long they stay. The longer they stay the more opportunities you have to sell to them.

Some things you will need to sell hot niche products?

The Overture Search Tool can be a wonderful addition to your marketing tool box. There are so many tools and so much help available at the site that when you visit you will be asking why nobody has told you about this before now. The costs are small and the services are large and extremely helpful to Internet entrepreneurs. It is free to join the site and there are so many ways for you to help yourself. You can locate the best keywords for your business and you can find out what the top bid is on the best key words, then you have the opportunity to place a higher bid.

There are a couple of differences to take note of, however. The free service gives you access to the STST. The way that overture will make a profit here, since the service is free, is by selling you the best key words. There's nothing wrong with that...everybody has to make a profit to stay in business. The Keyword tool on Google gives a complete different set of Keywords. The keywords are free, so you must do some research to find which free list is more accurate.

What Niche Marketing aims to do.

Niche marketing at its best helps to solve real problems that real people live with everyday. If you can come up with a product or service to promote in a niche market that will help people solve their problems, then you will have a money making niche market website and can quickly build a long list of potential customers.

Basically, find a specific problem that people have...any kind of problem...then find a "unique way" to help those people solve that problem. If you can do that, then you have a winner and a long term internet business which should make you money for a long time to come.

I have been interested in the internet since 2001. I am fascinated by the vast opportunities which online marketing and social communication offers the common person. Tony Cordingley.

Influence Persuasion Techniques

  Influence Persuasion Techniques

The best way to influence people is to share knowledge and place some important significance within that knowledge. Prestige is a great influencer, if you can be seen or accepted as having experience in a certain field, then that carries it's own influence. 

Consequences: make people aware of the consequences of certain actions, whether good or bad, if your points offer genuine guidance in a way that people can relate to in real life, then they can not fail to be influenced. 

 Leadership: showing genuine leadership and offering direction to those who need it will also create influence. Also, make sure your comments or advice have impact. Influencer's don't state the obvious, they think outside the box, be creative! 

Use Your Hands: Learning how to influence people by just using your hands may seem unrealistic, but the fact is that this works. Understanding how to be comfortable talking with both hands, showing respect with your hands and communicating with the your hands will help in assisting you to influence other people during conversations. 

Leadership Training: Part of leadership training is all about teaching participants the power to influence those around them. They identify the elements of motivation and demonstrate how you can motivate your team. With great influence comes great responsibility. Great leaders carry tremendous responsibility to guide people in the right direction. 
Lots of people wish to know the key of how to guide people,  they can see that it is not only good for themselves, but is another fantastic way to build character and relationships. There are numerous ways in which we are able to be influential, but there are certain fundamental yet quite effective solutions to intentionally go about accomplishing it.

Dale Carnegie: Dale Carnegie knew, he taught valuable lessons about the best way to influence people, but most of Carnegie’s less known beliefs were about general attitude and honesty, personality traits that initiate from within an individual. Nobody is in charge of your attitude or honesty, only you!

 I am not offering this post because I want to offer you some tricks of how to be influential, I am not an authority on that and I am sure there are numerous books written about this topic already. It's just something you must think about, especially if you intend going into any kind of business or perhaps setting up a Blog in which you share your opinions on various subjects.

So, to recap...

The simplest way to influence people is always to share knowledge and place some important significance within that knowledge. Prestige is a great influencer, if you can be seen or accepted as having expertise in a certain field, then that carries it's own influence.

Consequences: make people conscious of the consequences of certain actions, whether bad or good, in your points offer genuine guidance in a manner that people can connect with in real life, then they can not fail to be influenced.

Leadership: showing genuine leadership and offering direction to the people who need it will also create influence. Also, make sure your comments or advice have impact. Influencer's don't state the most obvious, they think outside the box, be creative! :-)
