A couple of weeks ago I came across an interesting tool to measure the loading speed of your website. The tool was created by Pingdom, and it basically loads your website, tracking the time at each stage of the process.
If you have been building websites or working with Internet marketing for a while you probably already visited the DigitalPoint forum. It’s the largest and one of the oldest online, and it’s owner, Shawn Hogan, was well known in the Internet marketing circles.
Last week I linked to a post which contained 10 tips for creating effective sales pages. While all the tips mentioned are solid, I think they don’t cover all the elements you need to include on a sales page, so I decided to list them. Here you go.
If you already have a sales page, or are planning to build one soon, you should check out a post from my buddy Karl Staib, titled 10 Tips to Create a Sales Page that Converts Prospects to Customers. Karl goes through the strategies that worked well on his own sales pages, including the best practices of the industry.
Whenever you need to sell something, how do you introduce it to potential buyers? The most natural thing for us to do is to start describing the product itself. In other words, to start describing its features. The problem with this approach? It doesn’t sell! It will simply bore the customer and make you lose his attention.
Bitcoin is a decentralized (i.e., no single country or organization controls it) digital currency. It was introduced in 2009 by an anonymous hacker, and over the last couple of years it is gathering a lot of interest. In fact if you check Google Trends for the term you’ll notice a huge spike taking place at this very moment in time.
As you might have heard, right now there’s a big debate regarding the future of the web. Some people argue that the web as we know it is dying, and that it’s going to be replaced by a closed web, experienced through individual apps like the mobile ones. Others argue that this won’t happen, and that the web will remain open and accessible mainly via the browser, be it on a mobile device or on a desktop computer.
My buddy John Chow recently launched a new product, called IM John Chow. While I am not an affiliate (so I am not earning anything whether you buy it or not) I checked the members area and liked the content and the structure, so I figured it could be useful to write a short review about it (there’s a bonus tip at the end too, so read on).
Two friends of mine are working on a project where they sell a study guide for an important exam here in Brazil. They have basically two product options available: a digital version and a print one. The price of the digital version is about half of the printed one. Which one do you think is selling more?
Only once after finishing a book I took the time to email the author to thank him for the masterpiece he had created, and it was after reading this one. The book is called CODE, The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software.
The first RSS reader I used was Bloglines, back in 2005. I kept using it for 2 years, but people kept saying I was missing out by not using Google Reader, so in 2007 I made the switch, and I have used it pretty much daily ever since.
Whether you like it or not, info products are a big part of the digital economy. Ebooks, courses, membership sites, you name it. Same for niches: weight loss, dating, making money, personal development, investing, so on and so forth.
