Today is the day I finally found the time to rebuild the Take Action List Building report and turn it into a live and interactive ebook the first of it’s kind. Normally ebooks are set up and rebranded via a PDF file. But well to me that was a bit old fashion so instead I am trying a brand new web based version in which I will be adding videos and other interactive content right into the report. Now what’s really cool about this is each member has their own url for the report. If you bought rebranding rights you will be able to rebrand the entire report with your own links and share it to anyone who has internet access.

Readers of this blog already know how I center most of my posts around building your own email list. Ever since I started to do this a few years ago my profits have soared and my time I spend online each day has dropped ( a healthy combo I think). In this post I want to show you how to save even more time by setting up a drip feed for email marketing. This can also be used for membership sites as well.
With the rapid expanse of social networks companies now have more ways to keep in touch with their customers. If not managed and watched carefully it could quickly bite you in the butt and damage your reputation online and offline. This is why when you make the commitment to take your business online you need to make sure you check or have alerts on your fan pages, forums and other areas of the web. Before if a customer was unhappy or happy with their product they would write an email to your support and the entire conversation would be kept private. Now with social networks an issue can quickly become viral and damage your company if not addressed quickly. Vise versa if a a customer has a great review of your business this can quickly become viral as well and gain you higher credibility.
Ok, advertising on the internet is honestly must different then advertising on TV and other media. This is where many companies fall on their face as these media marketing methods just don’t work when you try to apply them to internet advertising. The lack is data online as to what advertising is working and what is not. There is only so much you can track as other aspects such as reach, exposure and return visitors can come from anywhere such as a Facebook like or a Blog review post. Since these things happen outside of your tracking there really is no way to measure its effects on your business.
There was a time a few years back when a WordPress Adsense Theme was all you needed to make money online. This brought an onslaught of niche premium WordPress themes and I tried quite a few of them. What I quickly found was they all lacked what I was looking for in one way or another. Raise your hand if you have ever bought a premium WordPress theme only to discover that once you purchased it you were on your own and the so called award winning support ignored you. If you are new to building your own websites that is a ‘HUGE’ red flag and its how 90% of theme sales site treat you. Past that there were many of them that overcharged and under delivered by charging on a per site basis and considering themselves WordPress Adsense Themes even though they didn’t have any more widget spots than a normal free theme. Back to the drawing board I went and in my search I now knew exactly what I was looking for by having found so many that were not. By sharing my list here my hope is that you don’t have to go through what I did and you make the right choice for your needs both in the present and for your future.
