I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.

I'll refrain from making this post into a marketing lesson. It is just a tribute to life and love.

Happy days :-)

This is what I've been waiting for

Tomorrow, Mark Roth is launching a tool that lets you take your Google AdWords account, export it, and put everything from it into Yahoo and MSN AdCenter.

I know there is much more traffic and profit out there...

... I've wanted to start using my other PPC accounts properly, but time-problems have always stopped me.

The software does a lot of other things as well, but that's the part that gets me excited. You can read Mark's report here. Or you can just go to ... as I'm writing this, there's 5 hours and 24 minutes to launch. I can't wait!

Where The Programmer Meets His Income Stream

This article really hit the spot for what the Rich Programmer blog is all about.

It describes how you can squeeze more money out of any webpage where you're selling stuff by testing conversion... but in a fantastically new, free, advanced way.

If you combine Google Website Optimizer with the Google Analytics tool, you can get all sorts of wonderful conversion statistics that you otherwise wouldn't be able to get.

... and all you need is a little JavaScript.

Facing Fears For Fun And Profit

I've said it before, but it is only when I grow that my business grows.

For a long, long time, I've been very afraid of intimidating my list with too many emails. Even though I planned on sending them 2 emails a week, I hesitated writing those emails. I never did. And so there was nothing for me to add to the autoresponder.

I do answer all emails from customers, and when there has been something I though would be valuable to all, I saved it under the heading "Content."

And so my "Content" was just sitting there, in my inbox (I sent it to myself), eating away at the hard disk space.

Finally, I decided to face my fears. What do I want? A dead email list, or a live one? Does it really matter if people who do not want to receive my emails unsubscribe? No! It's better to have a small, responsive list than a large, dead one.

So I added the first email to my autoresponder for the first time in months... and instantly saw my daily income grow.

That was fun.

So I added another, and the same thing happened.

Then another. I started getting emails from customers who said "your email are getting better and better, you will soon pull me into your program"!

I got one who said "I know your emails are marketing, but I enjoy them."

Facing fears seems to be a lot of fun.

Xmas Spirit Giveaway

In the spirit of Christmas, I've decided to give you a little gift.

For the last couple of weeks, I've been reading a book that is absolutely life-changing.

I've heard about it many times, for years, but it didn't appeal to me...

...Even though so many succesful people talk about it, and have told again and again how it changed their lives, how they read it once a year, how it is the best thing that have happened to change how they view their possibilites in this life...

... I just didn't like the style, and so I read only a page or two and put it away.
But people kept talking about it

And eventually, I just had to read it.

You're very like to have heard about it...

Napoleon Hill was born into poverty in 1883, and as a teenager, began writing as a reporter for small newspapers. He had visions of becoming a lawyer, and did in fact enter law school, but financial constraints soon forced him to withdraw.

Then in 1908, industiralist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him to interview hundreds of successful men and women, in an effort to prove his theory that success could simplified down to a clear-cut forumula.

Hill interviewed the most famous (and richest) people of the time, and The Success Forumula was published in Hill’s 1928 book The Law of Success”. Hill reveals additional information on his success formula in the most famous of his works, “Think and Grow Rich”, published in 1937.

I don't agree with everything he says. Some of his arguments seem weird and outdated.
But his ideas and conclusions are gold.

This book has sold more than thirty million copies to date.

And today I'm giving it to you...

I've put up a website to give this book away. Please feel free to share it with your friends, colleagues and family.

May it bring you what you desire for 2007.

A very merry Christmas to you and yours, and a Happy New Year!

You get it from

Why is the site called that? You'll find when you read the book..
