Re: Do You Go For The Upsell Before Or After They Buy?

Re: Is Dreamweaver an out of date tool

I strongly recommend Lynda.com. For $25/month, you get crazy access to tons of video tutorials on all things tech (Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and TONS more). Yes it costs money, but it's a killer...

Re: RANT: Why do so many IMers lack basic web development?

I certainly don't feel as though I've made personal attacks. It may come across that way, but all I was really trying to do is explain that I get the notion of outsourcing (honestly, I do).

Re: Who would you recommend to host blog?

Re: Best Use Of $100 For Advertising My Site ?

Target the long tail, as others have recommended. Use adwords to buy 5 cent clicks with heavily negative qualifiers (in other words, use text in your ads that drive away worthless clicks).
