The Double-Edged Sword of Summer

Leave a comment

Business guy trying to relax on the beachIf you happen to be in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is definitely upon us. For many of us, that means a whole lot more fun in the sun, but it can also be a source of stress as we find it harder to get uninterrupted time to work.

Of course, nobody ever said that YOU had to do all the work this summer, did they? There are plenty of things you can do to leverage your time and the work of others to keep things going this summer… [Read more...]

Finding the Right Mix Between Response and Design

Leave a comment

One of the toughest things about building a successful long term internet business is finding the intersection between design & branding and response.

Brand oriented marketers who look at direct marketing salesletters often think: “ugh, this looks terrible.”

And they’re right – Often time’s response based marketing does look terrible. However, it does convert.

Yet conversion alone isn’t enough.

Conversion are enough to sell one product, but it’s not enough to build a long term business around. If you want a successful long term business, you really need to build a brand and get people to buy your products.

How do you find the right balance? [Read more...]

What to blog about? What to blog about?


It’s one of the most common problems bloggers face…what the heck should they write about? It’s happened to me and it’s probably happened to you, right?

To help with this conundrum, I thought I’d bring out another slide show from our top 10 Internet marketing tips PLR bundle. The PLR bundle is long sold out, but the good news is we have a new top 10s bundle coming this month. If you missed last week’s top 10 content marketing tips, you can see them here.

Here are my favorites from the slide show:

#6 – Ask Questions: One of the easiest things to do is to simply ask your readers a question. That way, they have to create all the content. ;-) Plus, you get to read some very interesting thoughts from your readers and learn a little something yourself. Once your readers have posted and you’ve responded, see if you can’t turn some of those ideas into new blog posts as well.

You’ll notice that #5 is to answer questions, which is also a favorite and something Jeanette Cates mentioned after last week’s slide show. It’s always another super easy way to get content to your readers that they already want.

#9 – Look back at previous popular content for ideas: Just about every topic can become more topics. You can go into more detail on a specific aspect. You can do a part 2 that continues the story or provides more advanced information. You can create a video, a slide show, take some photos or make some drawings. You can provide useful tools like spreadsheets, worksheets, patterns and more. There is always MORE you can do with a popular topic.

So, what’s your favorite way to get blogging ideas? How do you come up with your topics?

Prevent Blogging & Writing Pain: Ergonomics, Carpel Tunnel and More


The physical aspects of blogging and writing aren’t commonly discussed, but they’re critically important for the long-term blogger or web content creator.

A lot of people find that after writing web content for a while, they find that their wrists start to hurt. Or their back starts to hurt. At first, it might not seem like a big deal, but in time it can start to become seriously painful.

For me personally, I noticed this between 6 to 12 months after I started writing on a regular basis. The backs of my hands and the underside of my arms started to hurt.

It was mild at first, then became more and more painful. After a period of time, I realized that if I didn’t do something about it, it could turn into something serious – Like carpel tunnel or Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI.)

I spoke with a personal friend who’s an ergonomics coach. I did a bunch of research. I tried a lot of different things. What I found was pretty simple, but once I implemented these changes I more or less don’t experience pain when writing at all anymore.

Here’s how to keep your body healthy while you’re blogging and writing. [Read more...]
