How To Handle Leads Safely

One of the many questions readers have submitted is:

Q: “I have one list that is comprised of people from a lead company. In view of the spam laws, can I market to these people or not?”

Wonder Who’s Gobbling Your Profits?

Gee, I hate talking about negative stuff, especially in relation to the Festive Season, but hopefully a timely warning will mean something positive for someone.

Rank and File

Server redirects are not exactly an enthralling subject, until you realise just how POWERFUL and useful these things are. Reasons including; easier site management, professional looking links to use in email, nearly fool-proof affiliate link cloaking and preserving your search engine ranking should convince you that it’s worth five minutes to grasp this very simple technique. There’s nothing to buy: your site’s web server already has this facility.

Keep On Keeping On

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.” — Dale Carnegie

Little Things That Mean A Lot

In looking for ways to be heard over the Internet’s noise and be remembered, think subtle, personal and realistic. It only takes small things: things that impress big and cost little. These are the things that count.

Want to find Magical Secrets?

“It is our choices Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” — Prof. Dumbledore

Do You Want Fries With That?

“The world has changed. Our customers have changed. We have to change, too,” — Jim Cantalupo, McDonalds

Newsletter Publisher’s Secrets

When a long-time reader wrote to me about my apparent ability to expand my thoughts into articles, he called it “a special talent that a lot of people do not but wish they had” and my head started swelling from the flattery.

Who’s Fooling Who?

The ever-relevant question in the realms of Internet Marketing and Online Business. I often get people asking me questions like “Can I really make XYZ in the first week like they say?” and “What’s the best business/program?”

Enjoying the Fruits …

“Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.” — Ann Landers

Are We Becoming Ad-Phobic?

A recent US survey revealed that more than half of TV viewers actually leave the room during commercials. This is bad news for advertisers, without whose support many programs could not be provided in the first place, but I don’t imagine anyone is about to give up viewing entirely.

Revisiting Your Childhood for Business Ideas

“Success is waking up in the morning, who ever you are, wherever you are, however old or young, and bounding out of bed because there is something out there that you love to do, that you believe in, that you are good at – something that is bigger than you are, and you can hardly wait to get at it again today” — Whit Hobbs

Making Your Vocation Your Vacation

“The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation.” — Mark Twain

Top Five Sins of the Startpage Exchanges

Right now, these exchanges are generating more traffic to my site than any other single method ever has. They are a great tool, as any, in the right hands. They may not work next week, who knows, but that’s the nature of the Internet.

Marketing From An Island

Yours might be a physical island, like mine, or a psychological one from isolation at home that may also infer a lack of support from your nearest and dearest. What’s more, feedback suggests that this is a common problem.

Rustling Up Your Brand

Branding, as any expert on the subject will tell you, is nothing much to do with big M’s outside fast-food emporiums, nor tick marks on your over-priced gym shoes.

Branding you and your business is much more than a logo, an image, marketing or *making a name for yourself*: it’s about being seen as the ONLY solution to your prospective client’s problem.

Finding Inspiration to Realise Your Dreams

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” Mark Twain

Where Is My Pizza?

Customer Service starts with the customer … in applying just a little thought. Let me try a scenario …

You see an ad in your local newspaper for a new home- delivery pizza service, so you decide to give it a try. You call them, you order the one with all the trimmings and they give you the usual response that your pizza will arrive in 10 minutes. Sixty minutes pass slowly and still no pizza.

Today, I am going to show you some excellent sources for ezine ads at just $2.00 each or less and show you how to get the very best results from using them. They are effective and you will get results if you follow a planned strategy for success.

Rocket Your Way to Riches

It’s Monday morning and today’s the day you begin at your new post. After a 25 year career in construction, hair- styling or burger-flipping, you’ve finally landed that coveted job with Rocky Rockets Inc.

Internet Business Doomed by Grand Theft

Every ezine I read these days, including my own, editors are having to waste valuable space reiterating the rules or tightening them up because of the variety of abuses that they suffer from unscrupulous subscribers.

How to link to yourself to get repeat visitors!

What do I mean? OK, assuming you have a website with some very useful reference material on it. You do, don’t you? Content is king. And you get lots of visitors … (OK, that’s a whole other article.) Well, your visitors might wish to save that information for later.

Why Don’t People Get It?

I had an interesting conversation with my mother on Sunday.
Well, ALL conversations with my mother can be termed as “interesting”. They’re sorta like “mental lucky dip”, because you never know in advance what planet she’s going to be on. No, I’m not saying she’s crazy.

Formatting Your Ezine with TextPad
· 2

One of the questions I am most often asked is how to format ezines. I always use TextPad for these, to format articles and a multitude of other email offerings. This software *fixes* hard line breaks so that everything comes out looking neat. It’s a tool I would be lost without.
