Last year I wrote an article called “Beware of the [_______ _______] Scam” that received international attention.
I chose to remove that article and any reference of it from my blog. Here’s why..
“Hey Paul It’s —– —– calling. I met you the other day at the —– —– and wanted to set up a time that I could sit down and talk to you. I may have a couple referrals for you, and would like to also talk to you and see if maybe we can scratch up a couple of names that would be good for me. So give me a call back. My number is (###) ###-#### so lets see if we can find the time to get together. Okay thanks bye.”
That voicemail made me think.
You say that your income is 3-figures but that your budget is $50/month. It sounds to me like you’re budget should be zero with a fixed income like that! One of the lessons I always teach about Internet Marketing is to “stop BUYING and start SELLING” – you can’t take that too literally because there’s a time and a place for investing in your business, but it’s said with good intentions. Try setting your budget at ZERO and see what that does for you. It will close some doors but open others that you never would’ve discovered.
How do you choose a Wordpress host with countless website hosts on the market to choose from? Too many options if you ask me. The good news is that the majority of these hosts are complete garbage. In reality, there are only a handful of hosts that you should actually use if you power your website with Wordpress.
Occasionally I receive commercial e-mail solicitations from companies whose lists I never subscribed to. There are rules that must be followed with regards to e-mail marketing. These rules are dictated by The Bureau of Consumer Protection and were created with your best interests in mind.
Without these rules, can you imagine what your Inbox would look like?
When a small business sends an e-mail message advertising their products or services, I don’t get upset. They often don’t know the rules. I will sometimes write a nice e-mail informing them of their mistake and offer my services.
Here’s a recent e-mail and my reply.
