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 Del.icio.us ‘tool’ TAGS:
- Web Page Speed Report
- Formspring (great for adding surveys and polls)
- Touchgraph (dangerously addictive)
- Adimpact (GREAT way to get people to do things on your site)
Have a great weekend!
