RE: Wait a minute... this stuff still works?

I think this is the perfect time to be doing "offline marketing." A lot of people are out. Less competition.

Re: Email Marketing still works?

Re: How does the website content work

Whatever you do, don't create a subdomain. It's far better for your SEO to create a category or subfolder. A subdomain is treated as a *different* domain in the search engines' eyes.

Then, just...

Re: Best Place to Get Domain Names???

Namecheap for me. Easy, painless registration. I've used others, they've come a long way since the 90s (horrible back then and very expensive). One word of advice: Pick one and stick with it. Don't...

Re: Why I got banned from WF

"A rose is a rose is a rose" Same message, different verbiage. The message is right on the money. I was being tongue-in-cheek on why he was banned in the first place.

Act like any sane business -- cut out unnecessary expenses and then focus on one thing to earn revenue.

Unnecessary expenses might be cable TV, NetFlix, magazine subscriptions, Starbucks, etc.

Re: Anyone Create Sales Letters With WordPress?
