5 Essential WordPress Beginner Tips

5 Essential WordPress Beginner Tips

Hey guys,

I've got a great post from you here, it's a guest post from Erfan Shahedi.

Check it out, there's some GREAT content that can really help you with WordPress...

Over the last few years the popularity of using WordPress to build websites has sky rocketed.

But What Is WordPress Anyway?

WordPress started out as a simple blog creation tool, but its flexibility has meant it is now being used for creating many different types of sites. Whether you need a simple one page website, a large dynamic site, a blog, a content-based site or an ecommerce website, WordPress is a great platform choice.

If you haven't set up a WordPress site before, start off by downloading the code (free of charge) from WordPress.org. It takes just a few minutes to install the software onto your server. To get off on the best start possible, here are 5 tips all WordPress beginners should know.

1. Powerful Plugins.
One of the greatest benefits of WordPress is the vast array of available plugins that can add countless new features to your site. Ironically this can also be one of the biggest problems with WordPress. The ease at which you can install plugins, means that it is easy to end up with duplicated functionality or simply plugins that are not being used anymore. As the WordPress software is updated over time, plugins can cause compatibility issues if they are not actively maintained. A badly written plugin can slow down your site or open up security holes.

When choosing a plugin always check that it has:

  • Lots of user - Read some reviews so you're aware of any potential issues.
  • A good rating - Does it have a 4 star rating or higher?
  • An active developer - Check out the developer's website.
  • Compatibility with your version of WordPress.

2. Stop Spam.
You most likely want comments enabled, so that you have another avenue to communicate with your audience. Plus it helps with SEO. Unfortunately you will soon realise comment spam is a big problem. Even on a low traffic site you will receive a lot of unwanted spam that you will have to go through to find the genuine input from your readers. Fortunately you can use the Akismet plugin to block the majority of spam comments before they hit your WordPress dashboard. If you could only have one plugin on your site this would be it.

3. SEO Strategy.
Search engine optimisation (SEO) will be important to your site especially in the long-term. Get off on the right foot by installing a SEO plugin such as All In One SEO. Think about what a reader might type in a search engine when deciding the title for a new post or page. Though always remember the actual content of your site should cater to your readers first and foremost (not the search engines).

4. Site Security.
Never leave anything to chance. Make sure you have a solid backup procedure in place in case disaster strikes. You need back all the contents of the WordPress folder on your server and the database that is linked to your site. You could use a plugin to simplify and even automate this process. BackUpWordPress is a great choice for a backup plugin. If you use Dropbox, this plugin is good alternative to consider.

Websites being hacked is increasingly becoming an issue. A good first step to keeping your site safe and secure is to always keep your version of WordPress up to date. You will automatically be notified in the dashboard when a new update is available. Also you should keep your plugins updated as well and remove them completely if they are no longer used. Better WP Security is one of the best plugins you can use to further protect your site. Though you should read the instructions very carefully and backup your site before installing it.

5. Practical Permalinks
A Permalink refers to the URL you see in the address bar of your browser (which doesn't change over time) for a particular webpage. Google, Yahoo and Bing use the permalinks to find out what the content of a webpage is about. However, the default URLs for your WordPress blog posts and pages, are not optimised for SEO. Watch this video to learn how to change the permalink appearance, to fix this issue.

Videos are a great way of quickly learning new concepts and skills. If you would like to see more WordPress tutorial videos check out:

7 Reasons Why You Should Be Using High Quality Graphics

Posted on November 22, 2012

Hey guys,

In this blog post I want to highlight something that far too many people are MISSING OUT ON!

As you may have guessed by the subject, it is of course USING HIGH QUALITY GRAPHICS!

We've all heard the phrase '"A picture paints a thousand words", so why are so many people still missing out on this?

Let me highlight just a few ways that high quality graphics can help you...

1. Using high quality graphics on a product sales page - I've seen this time and time again, where people use low quality, poor, unrelated, distorted or over sized graphics when selling a product. If you initially look at a page and it reflects low quality and unprofessional design, then before you even read a word on the page you instantly think the product itself is low quality and unprofessional, even if it's the best thing since sliced bread!

2. Using high quality graphics on a squeeze page - The same applies to your squeeze pages as on your sales pages, if you're using low quality, poor, unrelated, distorted or over sized graphics on your squeeze pages to hopefully build your list, then potential subscribers are put off before they even see what they get in return for opting in. All your traffic generation efforts are being wasted if the page does not attract their optin.

3. Using high quality graphics in your product itself - If your product itself stands out from the crowd and looks awesome, customers instantly feel assured that you have spent an equal amount of time with the actual product, making it better for you and better for them too. Plus, all your promotional tools that relate to it will also look great too, generating a lot more sales and attracting a lot more affiliates to promote it!

4. Using high quality graphics in social media - Here's a question for you, if you see a text link on Facebook and you see a really nice picture, which would you be attracted to? I know the images get me every time, that's one of the reasons Pinterest is the fastest growing social media site in the world at the moment!

5. Using high quality graphics in promotions - This is another thing that I have personally tested extensively, trust me when I say this works like 20x better than regular text or poor quality graphics. I've used this time and time again and PROVED it generates many, many more affiliate sales.

6. Using high quality graphics in your videos and presentations - You know how big videos are at the moment, so why go to all the trouble of creating a great video, only to cheapen it with poor graphics! Create the video in high resolution (960x540) with high quality graphics and you will then have a lot more options with it. You can always reduce sizes without losing quality, but never increase without losing quality!

7. Using high quality graphics to theme your sales pages, squeeze pages or promotions on a particular time of the year - Let's take Christmas as an example here, how many times have you seen big companies and big marketers put out a 'Christmas Sale' or 'Christmas Special', there's a very good reason for that and it's because at that time of year sales are boosted DRAMATICALLY, so it makes sense to grab a hold of some of that MASSIVE TRAFFIC. The same applies to any special event throughout the year.

NOTE* This is also a very IMPORTANT point to note when hosting ANY graphics, or ANY website for that matter... USE A GOOD QUALITY, TRIED AND TESTED WEB HOST like BlueHost, a website is only as good as the host it resides on!

If you want to take advantage of using the 'time of year' graphics then I have a special treat for you, this has not even been released yet, it's a 'CRACKING' package of BRAND NEW Christmas Minisite Templates.

I would also suggest you grab all your custom designs from the same place as me and many others... GFX-1.

If you just need images to add to videos and posts etc. then I would very highly recommend you get them from a 'trusted' source like Fotolia.

I really hope this post has helped you understand the IMPORTANCE of using HIGH QUALITY GRAPHICS.

Have a great Xmas guys.

Dave.

Why Do You NEED Website Traffic and How Can it Really Help You?

Posted on November 3, 2012

OK guys,

In this post I'm going to highlight a few reasons of actually WHY you do NEED website traffic, just in case you are wondering what the heck it is all about!

First of all, you need to understand that you need traffic/visitors for pretty much everything you do online, and the same applies for offline marketing too.

Imaging a shopping mall with no shoppers, a theater with no audience, or a TV program with no viewers, you see what I'm getting at? All of these things, just like online stuff, ALL NEED some form of traffic in order to work.

Obviously, traffic methods for everything varies, but the fact still remains that you NEED website traffic if you want to succeed online!

Here are just a few reasons why you NEED website traffic:

1. You need website traffic if you want to sell any products online, it's no use just having a great product if nobody ever sees it.

2. You need website traffic if you want to build your mailing list. We all know how important building a mailing list is, but do you really think that all you have to do is place a squeeze page or an optin form online? You need to send traffic to your squeeze page or optin form in order to get people to sign up. Incidentally, you can join my list if you are not already on, by entering your name and email in the form on the right of this page!  => (See what I did there? I re-used the traffic reading this post (you) to build a list :-)).

3. You need website traffic in order to get people to visit your blog or website. Let's face it, if I never had any traffic methods in place then you would not be reading this post and learning why you need traffic! I know, it's a weird aint it! The same applies for any website online.

4. You need website traffic if you want to make more money online. At the end of the day it's all about numbers, the more people that view your websites etc. the more money you make. As an example, if you placed an advert on your website and only 10 people viewed it then you probably would not make any money at all, but if 1000 people viewed it then you'd make a tidy sum, because on average 1% of people take action.

5. You need website traffic if you want to build your brand name and get yourself known. Building your brand name can dramatically increase your business as people tend to trust people they know more and this reflects on buying. However, you still need to give yourself more exposure, so you need more traffic!

6. You need website traffic if you want to increase your social sharing. So if you send more traffic to your Facebook page for example, then more people would respond to your messages causing a viral effect, because their friends would also see it and their friends,  and so on... Here's a link to my Facebook page in case you are interested :-)

7. You need website traffic if you want the potential to increase your search engine and Alexa ranking. The more traffic you have, the more you get from Google, what I mean by this is let's say you have 100 websites linking back to your website, Google automatically knows this and gives your website a better ranking, allowing it to be found quicker in the search engines. That's just one of many examples.

8. You need website traffic if you want to save money on advertising. Once you have streams of quality traffic going to your website then you no longer have to take the chance of paying for your traffic in the form of advertising. You could actually get to the stage where YOU sell the advertising space on YOUR website.

9. You need website traffic if you basically want to have control of your income at your fingertips. Once you have control over your website traffic then you can basically direct it to anything you like, your latest product, the latest affiliate product, Amazon, eBay, Clickbank, in fact anything you like! This gives you instant income at the press of a button, so to speak.

Those are just a few of many, MANY reasons why you NEED website traffic, if you have any good ones of your own then let me know and I'll update my list.

So now you know why you NEED website traffic, all that remains is for me to tell you about the latest and greatest traffic product that will help you get all the traffic you will ever need!

It's the latest creation from John Thornhill and it's called 'Simple Traffic Solutions'.

In fact, it's that good I put together my BIGGEST, MOST VALUABLE, MOST TARGETED, HIGHLY EXPLOSIVE BONUS EVER for a $4.95 product.

If there are still some of my bonuses remaining then you can check out everything here.

I hope this post has helped you understand the IMPORTANCE of website traffic, and I hope my bonus helps you get the most from the AWESOME Simple Traffic Solutions.

Please feel free to let me know any of YOUR best FREE traffic methods or any more reasons why you think people NEED traffic.

Please also let me know what you think about Simple Traffic Solutions if you grabbed it, and don't forget to hit the share/like/tweet buttons on the left of this post or below. :-)

Is There Such a Thing as The Ultimate Blogging Guide?

Posted on October 2, 2012

Hey guys,

OK, so is there such a thing as 'The Ultimate Blogging Guide?'

The Ultimate Blogging Guide

Well, until recently I would have said not, you would probably need to grab a few different guides, choose the best content from all or them and then decide how to implement it all yourself.

Let's back up a little here and answer the more important question... Why do You Need to Get a Blog Online?

I've mentioned some of the main benefits of having a blog in an earlier post, but just in case you missed it here's a few benefits of having your own blog:

1. Having your own blog is great for search engines, search engines love WordPress blogs, giving you INSTANT organic traffic.
2. Having your own blog is great to build your brand name, your brand name is very important, as people need to trust you!
3. Having your own blog is AWESOME for list building, and we all know how IMPORTANT that is!
4. Having your own blog is a great way of providing great content for your subscribers, just like I'm doing right now!
5. Having your own blog is a great way to communicate to your subscribers, just like I'm doing now!
6. Having your own blog is excellent for linking to all your other sites and also other peoples sites, for back linking and additional traffic, kinda like a central hub.
7. Having your own blog is a great way to generate passive income, from products you recommend etc. We all love passive income! :-)

That's just a few off the top of my head, trust me, there are LOADS more great benefits!

So I've shown you just some of the MASSIVE benefits of having your own blog online, now my earlier question... is there such a thing as 'The Ultimate Blogging Guide?" should be smacking you in the face! :-)

As I said earlier, until recently I would have said there is no such thing as 'The Ultimate Blogging Guide", but only yesterday my very good friend Daniel Sumner released what I consider to be the Best Blogging Guide...EVER!

He spent the better part of 18 months creating this AWESOME guide, and you can see that reflects instantly as soon as you first set your eyes upon it.

OK, so you may be thinking I'm a tad biased as Daniel is a good friend of mine, but I can honestly say to you that is NOT the case here, I ALWAYS tell it like it is, if Daniel released this and it was rubbish, I'd say that, and he'd tell you that himself!

But I can honestly say that this really is the Best Blogging Guide...EVER!

Check it out for yourself HERE and let me know your thoughts. (special 40% discount link)

Please feel free to 'like', 'tweet' or share this post if you found it useful, and please let me know what your thoughts on Blogging, blogging guides and of course, The Bloggers Roadmap are! :-)

Sales Funnels Build Ever Growing Evergreen Income Streams!

Posted on September 20, 2012

Ok, with the recent launch of Omar and Melinda's AWESOME Buzzinar, I thought I'd write a post that basically explains a little about sales funnels to show you why they are so important and how they can build you Ever Growing, Evergreen Income Streams!

Sales Funnels Build Ever Growing Evergreen Income Streams

So where do you start?

First, you need to understand that a sales funnel is more like an ongoing process of turning your leads into buyers, rather than simply buying or not buying whatever it is you are offering.

For example, let's say you are selling a product/service, without a funnel in place your prospect will either buy or not buy and that's where it ends!

However, if you do have a funnel in place that is only the beginning, for the same amount of traffic you are going to get a LOT more return for your efforts.

Here's an example of a funnel you could initiate that will DRAMATICALLY increase your conversions:

1. Rather than sending your traffic to a sales page you could send them to a squeeze page, possibly offer a free gift that is related to your product/service in return for their name and email. This gives you the opportunity to sell to your prospect at a later date, possibly multiple times. So even if they don't buy today you have the chance that they will at a later date.

Be sure to only ever offer high quality gifts, we've all got far too much crap on our hard drives! :-)

2. Now you can send your leads to your sales page for your product/service, they still can only buy or not buy, but this time if they don't buy you still have them on your list, so you can possibly sell to them again at a later date.

3. If your prospect does buy, you can now offer them a higher priced second offer (this is an upsell), products/services that are related to your initial product work best, possibly an upgrade or advanced version.

4. At this stage you could possibly add another third offer if they purchase your second offer.

5. If they decline the higher priced second offer then you can now offer them a lower priced offer from that page (this is a downsell), again, keep this related to your initial offer, possibly a reduced/lite version.

6. Once your prospect has purchased, be sure to add them to another list, this is your buyers list, the most important list you can have!

7. You can now possibly add more offers in your autoresponder follow up messages, here's a few ready made messages you can use.

If you follow these steps to initiate a Sales Funnel then you will increase your sales/optins exponentially.

Of course this is just one way you can initiate a sales funnel to DRAMATICALLY increase your conversions, if you are going to initiate your own sales funnel, then the best advice I can offer you is to grab Omar and Melinda's Buzzinar, this gives you everything you need in simple to follow, step by step videos, as well as loads of ready made HTML templates, WordPress themes and plugins that will make your life a LOT simpler with sales funnels!

In fact it's that good I even offered a MASSIVE bonus for anyone who grabs it from my link, check it out here.

I hope this helps you understand the IMPORTANCE of sales funnels.

Pinterest…So What’s it All About?

Posted on May 10, 2012

So what's 'Pinterest' all about then?

Basically, Pinterest is a site full of images, just like you would find in a catalogue. You can create as many categories as you like and you can share the pins of other users in what is called a 'repin', or pin off the Internet from sites that have been wise enough to add a 'pin it' button to their site. The person who is sharing is referred to as the 'pinner'.

 

Why would you make the effort to start using Pinterest?

Well, put it this way, Pinterest is by far the fastest growing social media site in the world at this moment in time!

It's actually got well over 11.7 million unique users, making it the fastest site in history to break through the 10 million unique visitor mark.

So that makes Pinterest the third most popular social network at the moment, behind Facebook and Twitter.

Pinterest Stats

Now that we've established how popular and fast growing Pinterest is, let's see how we can use it, and more importantly how it can help make our lives easier.

The first thing you need to do is to request an invitation to join, you can do that here for free.

Once you have your account you can then start pinning, it's really simple to work out, there's nothing hard about it, first edit your profile and then create your 'boards' (categories) for your pinned images.

A simple way to pin 'any' image you see is to install a Pinterest addon for your web browser, I use the Pinterest Right Click addon for Firefox, you can get it here if you need it.

However, it's also simple to 'repin' images that other users have already pinned, by simply browsing the images in Pinterest and clicking the 'repin' icon in the top left of the image, this will then pin that image to your chosen board.

There's also some really simple tools inside Pinterest that you can use to add 'Pin It' and 'Follow' buttons onto your websites, just like this one:

Follow Me on Pinterest

Another really cool thing about Pinterest that I personally love is the mobile phone app, if you pin an image from there, you can also set it up to post the image on Facebook and Twitter, you can also take an image from your phone and pin it at the same time.

Maybe now more people will start to add more high quality images relating to their products and services! :-) Oh, if you ever need any images then you can't beat GFX-1 for quality and cost.

There's obviously a lot more about Pinterest than I would want to bore you with here, so I've got a complete eBook about the subject for you totally free, you can download it here.
Feel free to share/sell this eBook, as long as you don't change the content, if you need any PLR material for yourself, then look no further than our PLR Monthly site.

Enjoy!

Regards,

Dave.

Oh, don't forget to share your love with the social sharing below, and please let me know your comments on Pinterest, good or bad :-)

Facebook Timline Changes and How They Will Affect You and Your Business!

Posted on March 7, 2012

Hey guys,

OK, unless you have buried in work for the last month or two (like me :-)), you will have heard about the new Facebook timeline changes for all fan pages.
Basically, on March 30th 2012 all pages will be automatically changed over to the new timeline format on Facebook

So I would recommend you go and familiarize yourself with the new layout before Facebook makes the change.

I personally think it's a great update, I know it's a bit of a pain to update your pages, but there are loads of new features that are pretty cool:

Cool New Features:

Massive Cover Photo Size

The cover photo, or main image at the top of your page can now be upto 851 pixels wide, giving you a LOT more exposure to highlight your page.

Cover photos are 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall. If you upload an image that's smaller than these dimensions, it will get stretched to this larger size. The image you upload must be at least 399 pixels wide.

Facebook has set a few rules with this though, check them out:

Cover images must be at least 399 pixels wide and may not contain:

  • Price or purchase information, such as "40% off" or "Download it at our website"
  • Contact information, such as web address, email, mailing address or other information intended for your Page's About section
  • References to user interface elements, such as Like or Share, or any other Facebook site features
  • Calls to action, such as "Get it now" or "Tell your friends"

All cover images are public, which means anyone visiting your Page will be able to see the image you choose. Covers must not be false, deceptive or misleading, and must not infringe on third parties' intellectual property. You may not encourage or incentivize people to upload your cover image to their personal timelines.

Oh, and they'll probably keep updating them, so make sure you keep checking!

Much Wider Page Tabs

This is great in my opinion, the old page tabs used to be 520px wide, allowing you to use around 500px before scrolling, but the new ones are a massive 810px wide which you can place a decent 790px page into.

That's pretty much a full size website, giving you a LOT more scope for making your page look cool with loads of content.

Better Tab Icons

The tab icons that link to your 'Photos', 'Likes' and custom tabs etc. are placed very prominently just below your cover photo, they are much larger than the previous ones (109x72px)

Fan Page Messaging

This is also a pretty cool feature, pages now have the option to show a 'Message' button just below the cover photo, so fans can message the page privately. As I said it's optional, but by default it shows the message button.

It's a good way for your fans to interact with you I think, as long as it does not get abused. Guess we'll have to see how that goes eh! :-)

Highlighting and Pinning Posts

This is definitely a cool feature, by simply clicking the little star at the top of a post you can 'highlight' it, making it full page width, and by clicking the little pencil icon you can pin that post to the top of your page.

Awesome idea for those 'need to be seen' posts!

New  Page Admin Panel

This is also a pretty cool feature, you can now view your admin panel in great detail above your page, giving you information on notifications, messages, likes, insights and page tips right at your fingertips

 

Not So Cool New Features:

Default Landing Tab Removal

Booooooo, the default landing tab is going to be removed, so you can't set which page a fan will land on by default, it's not a big drawback, especially with the new tab icon size being more readable, but nevertheless it's not so cool!

Highlights of 2011 and $100 Gift for YOU!

Posted on December 31, 2011

Hey guys,

2011 HighlightsOK, so another year has almost passed us by again, doesn't time fly when you're having fun! :-)
I'm going to go over some of the things that I have been up to this year, as posting regular updates wasn't one of them! :-)
As last years little competition was such a success, I'm going to do the same again this year and hopefully give some lucky reader $100 cash!
It's real simple, all you have to do is to reply to this post with YOUR personal highlight of the year, I'll then put all the names into a hat and randomly choose the lucky $100 winner!

So here's MY personal highlights of 2011:

January 2011 - The first thing I did in January was to launch the new look for my Planet Divinity website, it's kind of a central hub for me and home to some great turnkey websites.
I then told you about Matt Garrett's Instant Article Videos, and how simple it was to turn all your articles into videos, the feedback I received on this was great!
Later that month was the launch of Michael Cheney's My Millionaire Mentor, where myself and John Thornhill teamed up to put an awesome bonus package together with the hope of providing you all with some great content and also win his affiliate contest at the same time, we did win it thanks to all of you and we gave over $2,000 to charity too.

February 2011 - In February I re-launched Multi Profit Monthly with John Thornhill, a 12 month course where we show people how to duplicate our success, using all the methods that we have used to succeed online.
Then John Thornhill launched his excellent One Month Mentor program, which is 31 days of TOP QUALITY training, aimed to get you started FAST!

March 2011 - The first thing to come in March was a superb free eBook from my good friend Daniel Sumner, that shows you exactly how to create and more importantly market an eBook, it was called The eBook Cycle.
Later that month myself and John offered you $8,174+ worth of just about all of our best selling products for what can only be described as a truly INSANE price, it was 72 Hours of Complete Madness!

April 2011 - In April my good friends Tony Shepherd and Tony Newton launched a cracking 4 week training course that basically shows you how to create and Flip WordPress Blogs! Awesome stuff!
later that month Myself and John Thornhill launched a fantastic piece of software that creates Facebook like pages in under a minute, it was called Like Page Builder, and the best part was we gave you it for FREE!

May 2011 - In May I had been working behind the scenes with Omar Martin to create a FREE source for you to find out all about the people and products online, it was called IM Trustworthy, and it's now very widely used and respected.
May was also the time that my good friend Stevie at GFX-1 created a brand new collection of Over 1,500, High Quality, Professional Website Graphics, excellent for 'instant' web pages that look amazing!
Later this month my good friend Lee McIntyre released a controversial free video where he revealed the 3 weird little strategies that he used to build a SEVEN FIGURE online business in record time, it was called Instant Internet Lifestyle and it really was lifestyle changing stuff!
Later that month my good friend Socrates Socratous launched a 'killer' product, it was called Killer Content and it was that good that I offered a BONUS of over $1,594.00 just for anyone who purchased through my link! Cracking stuff!

June 2011 - June was when I launched Affiliate Ad Rotator, this was a product I teamed up with John Thornhill on, basically, it displays and rotates ClickBank IMAGE banner ads. We all know how well images work instead of just plain text, well, this gives you the perfect ads for your websites or blogs, we even have an option for users to add their own ads to our database, giving excellent exposure!
Around mid June, John Thornhill and Keith Purkiss launched Push Button Giveaway, a great product that basically makes using giveaway events 'push button' :-)
Soon after that I launched PLR Monthly 2.0, myself and Daniel Sumner made this to be what we think is the greatest PLR resource site in the world... Bar none! We added a shed load of content to our already great content, far too much to list here! Around the end of June my good friend John Thornhill launched a 'Warrior Special Offer' for only $12, it was called Affiliate Promo Formula, giving you a blueprint of how to make BIG bucks with affiliate promotions.

July 2011 - This was when John Thornhill launched his $497 Coaching Program for only $19, no catches or anything, just a single $19 payment for his cracking coaching program.
Around mid July was when my good friend Omar Martin launched his excellent 'My Unfair Advantage' which was basically some TOP quality software, training and support from REAL experts. This was so good that I also offered a $497 BONUS just for anyone who purchased through my link!
Near the end of July I teamed up with John Thornhill to launch '72 Hours of Complete Madness', we really went to town with this one, giving you 3 days to grab an AWESOME package of products, if you missed this then you should kick yourself! :-)

August 2011 - The start of August was when me and John launched Multi Profit Monthly in a $5 Warrior Special Offer, this was an amazing success and if you took advantage of it then you got a superb deal for only $5!
Later that month we launched the Simple Success System series, the first one shows you via FREE webinar, how we generated over 8 million from multiple income streams! Soon after that John launched another, called 3 Steps to Success.

September 2011 - At the start of September my good friend Jim Cockrum launched a cracking course called quite simply The Proven Amazon Course, with Amazon getting even bigger and Jim's extensive knowledge and experience, it's no surprise that this was an amazing success for him!$
Around the middle of September John launched another great WSO, this one was called Profit from PLR, you basically got a great $97 product for only $5! Soon after that my good friend Alex Jeffreys launched an awesome FREE report showing you how he generated 1 MILLION in just 21 days, and how you can do the same too, it really was good stuff!
Around the end of September Jim Cockrum launched a great bok that was basically the result of a decade worth of ideas that Jim has collected and found REALLY work, it was called Free Marketing, and it really was an excellent read, Jim also gave the proceeds to charity...What a guy!

October 2011 - The first thing that highlighted October for me was an excellent bit of software from Robert Black, this usually sold for $77, but as a WSO you got it for just $5 ($10 now), I thought this was great!
Around the middle of October I launched an AWESOME WSO with John Thornhill, we offered you one of our best selling $197 products for just $5, it was Multi Profit Websites.
At the end of October John launched his excellent WSO Domination, this gave you a step by step blueprint to creating a WSO and making money from it. As with any great product I also offered a BONUS again too!

November 2011 - This was when we launched ClickBank Affiliate Master in a WSO special for only $5! It's an excellent piece of software that allows you to create multiple 'custom' ClickBank affiliate links and pages, we use this software on just about all our products, and it helps pull in thousands, if not TENS of THOUSANDS worth of ADDITIONAL sales.
Around the middle of November was when my good friend Stevie B launched a cracking Video Template Pack in a WSO, you guys loved this!

December 2011 - Well I'm sure you can remember this, but I teamed up with John to give you guys yet another AWESOME BONUS, this time it was for PLR Jackpot, an awesome PLR package. Oh, it's available again for a limited time if you missed out!
Around the middle of December myself and John launched our hugely successful WSO Success program, this sold out right away, but you can still get on the waiting list for next time.
Soon after that my good friend Stevie B launched another 'PREMIUM' Video Template Pack via WSO, another great essential!
I'm sure you saw our Festive Blowout just after Christmas, this really was an AWESOME package of some seriously high quality products from us, I hope you managed to grab it before it was gone, if you missed it then you missed a treat! :-)

OK, so that's basically my highlights of 2011, I also did a lot of 'behind the scenes' stuff, which I'll tell you about some other time!

Sorry if this post went on a little longer than expected, but there was a lot to fit in!

Remember, if you hit reply and let me know your marketing highlight of 2011, I'll put your name in a draw for $100 cash!
I'll make the draw in a week or two and send the cash instantly! You must be able to receive the cash via Paypal, if you cannot and you still wish to enter, I will donate the cash to a deserving charity in your name.

Please make sure you use your best email address when you reply, as I will need to contact you on it if you win!

Good luck for the $100 cash draw and I hope you have a great 2012.
