I was searching for how to contact someone and as usual Googled the someone, as you do.
Well, I found the person’s site but along the way, found another site simply because on this site there was a review about the someone I was looking for (got that? still with me?). Actually there were several reviews about different products etc.
One of these caught my eye becuase it was about Butterfly Marketing and it’s launch. As BFM had just finished it’s launch I assumed this article and review about the launch was written within the last couple of days.
How wrong I was, it was written back in January 2006, it is an interesting read, even those promoting it back then, were promoting it again recently.
This is even more interesting, how BFM came to be what is is today, I guess you could call this ‘read’ the “birth of BFM” way back in ?
Then there was this post which was written back in August 2006 and could have easily been written today.
It’s nice to know that although we often feel that things change on the Internet too often and too quickly, there are some things that never change, so it seems, marketing being one of them.
Maybe a good lesson to be learnt, never give up on any of your projects, keep adapting, keep renewing, keep on keeping on and surely things will come your way, one day!
I certainly hope so, catch you again soon, take care
It has been a busy time the last couple of weeks. I have been setting up several sites, actually haven’t finished yet, well when do we ever finish!
I have come across several really good ebooks, opportunities, aids for setting up sites and lots more. The opportunities btw are nothing to do with PPC, Adwords and the word ‘blueprint’ is nowhere in site and neither is there a ‘kid’ who has a secret.
In actual fact one of the ebooks, opportunities and aids are all connected. This particular ebook is not bedtime reading, if it was a physical book, I would never have it as bedtime reading, you see it is 950 pages and I have a rule, when my book hits me on the nose three times, (this means I have nodded off to sleep) then I close it and go to sleep, no way would risk a book this size falling on my nose. I do print out the various sections I want to find out more about though.
This is not a book to sit down to read in one session either. This is the best reference book on WordPress that I have ever seen. I don’t think you would find another book with as much information about a product as this one.
One of the sites I have been planning is a review style site. So, open WordPress For Internet Marketers, that is the name of this ebook and I’m proud to say has been written by a fellow Aussie, Leanne King.
Not only did I find out how to set up the review site, Leanne went on with several other ideas that would expand the site and allow me to make money in areas I wouldn’t have thought of and……all the links, steps and information to make it happen are right there.
So you see, the how to, the where to find the make the how to happen and the ideas to expand and increase the revenue from it all are all there.
To give you and idea of the thoroughness of this ebook, Leanne has provided a chapter that you can download, then you can see for yourself. You may know how to do what this chapter is about, then again you may not but it will let you see how well the information is put together.
If you are wanting to get into WordPress to build you sites then there is no better information product out there than this. But I’m betting if you go ahead and get the book, which I highly recommend, you will have so many moments where the lightbulbs will start flashing and you saying, I didn’t know that was available, WOW! never would have thought to make a site with WordPress that will do such and such.
If you want to take advantage of the complimentary chapter, then add your name and email above and it will be delivered straight to your inbox.
You can find out more or if you wish to go ahead and get the book, then go here right now and Leanne will tell you more or arrange for you to download the ebook.
Till next time, take care.
PS You will be glad it is a download product, a 950 page book is rather heavy to carry home
Communicating with your list. Do you use Aweber?
You don’t need to be sending emails to your list every day, although some people do and some people seem to rotate their messages. Apart from jumping on the bandwagon and promoting all and sundry product launches, some have a set of emails that they seem to resend, not sure how many are in the set though.
There is a better way to stay in touch with your list and not get them agro with you and that is, with the help of Aweber.
Have you looked at the option of sending what Aweber call a Blog Broadcast using your RSS feed from your blog? This is not like adding an RSS feed to another website.
By far this would be the easiest way of staying in touch with your list, once set up it just runs on auto, you can set it to manual if you wish, but the auto is the easy way.
You can set how many posts/articles that you have added in between mailings, the day or even the date, like theTuesday of each week or the 14th of each month, that the broadcasts will be sent, you choose and then the Aweber system takes over.
There are templates for you to choose from and believe me this is so easy to set up, Aweber has taken care of everything. You can add to the template to make it look like your site if you wish too.
All you do is post to your blog, make it interesting and like clockwork your blog news goes out to your list on the day you have requested.
So get your RSS feed and go log into your Aweber account and get going, they really do have a lot on offer for their subscribers.
Stay in touch with your list without having to even think what to write them about, just post to your blog whatever you think your list will get some value from and you won’t be thought of as always trying to sell them something.
Okay that’s it for me for now, have some website organising to do and updating.
Catch you later, hope your day is a great one.
