“If you observe a really happy man you will find him building a boat, writing a symphony, educating his son, or looking for dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert.” - Australian psychiatrist W. Béran Wolfe

Greetings & Thanks for Visiting!

mike corso - seo - cool site I'm a web viking and digital marketing ninja (SEO, SEM, email, social media, landing page optimization, lead generation, etc. ) responsible for Cool Site of the Day, the Internet's oldest directory (launched in 1994).  I'm also Google Adwords Qualified and am one of only .5% with direct access to Google corporate. One of my goals with Cool Site of the Day is to shine a light on all the cool websites since the beginning of cyber time.

Cool Site of the Day has featured a unique site every day since August of 1994...nearly 9,000 sites!

As for my approach to Internet marketing and SEM, the following quote says it all:

“That which is measured improves. That which is measured and reported improves exponentially.” (Pearson's Law found on Mark Joyner's Simpleology)

More background

In 1993, I was the first person to promote music on the Internet for the major record labels (via bulletin boards and primitive websites!). After 5 years working for the music industry, I bought Cool Site of the Day (1998).
I have been quoted in several online and offline publications including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and am usually available for interviews and speaking engagements.

Sometimes I find time to offer consulting services...

If you do decide to contact me for a consultation, know that we will FOCUS on keyword research and competitor analysis INTENSELY (believe me, it will save you hours/days/months/years of heartbreak). THEN, you will know if your idea has a shot; if not, I will likely redirect you towards a more lucrative path.

How I spend my free time

Other than my business life, I'm also: Hoping our paths cross one way or another, Mike Corso e-mail: mike AT facebook twitter | linkedin
"Mike Corso is incredible. Our heads hurt from the number of good ideas to track down after consulting with him for 30 minutes. Thanks, Mike!" -Jake,
“Thanks for your insight and site evaluation. We have moved from PR3 to PR5 on one of our main landing pages thanks to you. We are on our way up thanks to your professional evaluation and valuable input. We have not implemented all of your suggestions as we have a small staff here. Thanks Again!"  Bruce Richards
“Mike Corso will show you the proper way of doing things. There is no hidden agenda, just pure information and action. You must be sleeping at the wheel if you do not get on board with Mike and his 'Crazy Train'!!” -David A.
"Keep up the good work. You really have a winner of a site, and what a way to help new sites generate the traffic they need when they first launch."  -- John H.

Is it Friday?

Same old story: I aim to post something on Thursday and I’m either scrambling late Thursday night or, as in this case, by the end of the day on Friday. Good thing I have nothing to sell–you’ve heard it before: send your ‘pitch’ e-mails on Tuesday or Wednesday when people are more likely to read them.

Cool Site of the Day VIP

Anyway, I’m deep into creating a ‘Cool Site of the Day VIP’ program so I’ve only got time to share just a few nuggets with you today.

By the way, the ‘Cool Site of the Day VIP’ program will enable online business folk like yourself to not only submit a website for review but also opt-in for a pretty impressive monthly consulting/coaching package offered by yours truly. It won’t be for everyone but for those who sign-up (and I’ll only be able to offer it to less than 50 people), it promises to over-deliver (in other words, I’m going to bust my rear to make sure that NO ONE takes me up on my “100% money back” guarantee).

Search Engine Traffic

I take my hat off to all of you who have wisely chosen to open an account with Web Marketing Concepts. I’ve fielded a bunch of calls from you over the past several days and I look forward to helping as many of you as possible get the most out of this exceptional search engine marketing tool. And, oh yeah, I’ll get to that WMC mindmap soon!

Speaking of mindmaps, if you read the The Internet Business Manifesto, you learned the importance of ‘process mapping’ all the important routine things that you do in your web business and even personal life. I’ll be sharing many process maps with you in the future. The software that I use for mapping is MindJet. Play around with it–you’ll be amazed at how well a good map can focus your thinking and ACTIONS.

Pretty Cool Tool

So I get an e-mail from Bill at the Web Marketing Association announcing their upcoming Awards. I see they’re talking up a design firm that created the UPS Whiteboard. Can’t be that cool or can it? I clicked around and discovered a very cool way to send a message to someone when you want that someone to REMEMBER YOU.

Here’s what you do, go to UPS Whiteboard and select the little navigator thingy on the bottom right. Then select ‘Break Room’. On the next screen, select ‘Create Your Own Whiteboard’. Tell me that delivery system won’t capture your intended recipient’s attention. I sent a message to my wife but could easily see using it to communicate a simple ‘thank you’ or ‘reminder’ to a current or prospective client.

From My ‘tool’ TAGS:

  1. Web Page Speed Report
  2. Formspring (great for adding surveys and polls)
  3. Touchgraph (dangerously addictive)
  4. Adimpact (GREAT way to get people to do things on your site)

Have a great weekend!
