Getty images socked with lawsuit for trolling

There was some concern here about the slew of copyright infringement demand letters/lawsuits from Getty Images. So many of you may find this an interesting turn of events. (And if you received a...

Re: Competition vs No Competition Markets: Which Has Made The Most Money For You?

Jack, the post behind your link is great! I did something similar with companies that were sued over issues with their employee benefits programs. We turned $90 in direct mail costs into $250k in...

Re: How to solve this Internet Marketing problem?

You can't "solve" it. You have to accept it as the reality of being in business (not just IM). A few things you can do are:

-- diversify your business. Don't put all your eggs in one marketing...

What a great post! You nailed an important distinction. I was reading kindsvater's post and thinking "You know, he's right--for certain kinds of business models." Clearly, the "low competition"...

Re: Should my pricing be transparent? Competition are doing it differently..

I think that's a great point. If you're selling pretty low-priced services anyway, posting your fees may not be a bad idea. If a client is typically worth only worth, say, $500 in all, you probably...

If you start the conversation with pricing (or worse, post a "menu" of prices on your website) then you have reduced your services to a commodity.

Some people will simply look at your prices,...

Re: Warrior Forum Content Auction Section

It would be like ebay and iwriter made a baby :). Not a bad idea--not sure I'd do any auctions, but maybe a money-maker for WF.

Re: How to find affluent leads for a line of luxury products?

Re: The Pareto in Action 80% of the Warriors who responded, both in the thread

Yup! I've been guilty of this. I basically wasted my 4 years at college because of this. I didn't figure it out until quite a bit later.

Regardless of what we believe about the "how", I think the passage above is what matters most. If you don't want it badly enough to do what's necessary, the rest is academic.

Re: How much are you paying for a GOOD full time writer?

I' m on the corporate side too and agree completely. Some writing I've seen described as "good" in IM would be unacceptable elsewhere. And $50/hour would be very reasonable for a truly skilled writer...

Re: How I use Press Releases

This is, after all, what press releases were originally intended for--they provide information and a "story" to the news media, which can use it verbatim, use parts of it, or rewrite it completely.
