Formatting – Have you ever struggled with formatting

Formatting – Have you ever struggled with formatting an article or newsletter to just the right column length? If so, use the formatting tool at http://www.jbmckee.com/formatit/. There’s nothing to download. Just copy and paste your article or newsletter into the space provided, enter your desired column width and click a button. Detailed instructions are provided on the site. If your document is already formatted, have no fear. There’s also a reformatting utility on the site.

SpamCheck Report – Stay out of your reader’s “Junk Mail Folder.” Check your newsletter and/or article for “spamminess” by sending the text of the document in the body of an email to spamcheck success2096@sitesell.net. A SpamCheck Report will be sent back to you in seconds. Make sure TEST starts the subject line or the email will be ignored.

Shorten Your Links – If the affiliate or tracking links in your document are too long to easily click, check out http://www.tinyurl.com. This utility transforms long URL addresses into manageable ones. For example this address http://myws.sitesell.com/success2096.htmlbecomes this one http://tinyurl.com/7ivr.
