Avoid The FUD By Following These Three Simple SEO Tips

August 28, 2007

One of the biggest ways I get traffic to ALL of my blogs is from the Search Engines. I have designed most of my blogs to get more Search Engine traffic than you might expect. Well, I am about to let you in on a little secret about increasing the Search Engine traffic to your blog…

It Is Not As Complicated As Some People Make It Seem

There is a lot of FUD out there about Search Engine optimization. The Search Engines give you FUD, SEO experts spread FUD, FUD gets spread on forums and blogs. It’s hard to avoid the FUD!

By now you might be wondering:

What In The World Is FUD?

FUD stands for Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. A lot of people (the Search Engines included) want you to have fear, uncertainty and doubt about how to get higher Search Engine rankings. The Search Engines want you to have FUD, because it pays their bills. How else can they get you to pay for advertising on their Search Engine? Some (not all) SEO experts want you to have FUD, because it pays their bills. Your competitors (people trolling in forums) want you to have FUD, because they don’t want you competing with them (and it pays their bills).

Just say no to the FUD!

Sure there are a lot of of complicated tweaks you can make to ensure your blog is SEO friendly, but to get high rankings in the Search Engines it doesn’t have to be so complicated. And I will prove it!

Here Is The Proof

Go visit the site seodigger.com.

Next, type in this domain name (http://www.canimakebigmoneyonline.com) in the search box.

Check out all the terms that this site ranks high for in Google. Not bad, eh?

Well guess what?

I don’t have a robots.txt file, I don’t use SEO plug-ins, I don’t do all the complicated things that people tell you that you are “supposed” to do to rank high for search terms. In fact, I only recently started putting the nofollow tag on links to my rss feed (it hasn’t made a difference in my rankings yet).

Yes, there are things you can do with your robots.txt file, with the nofollow tag, with plug-ins, etc. that will help your Search Engine rankings. However, if you don’t have enough time to keep up with the latest and greatest Search Engine techniques you can still get solid traffic from the Search Engines and THIS blog is a great example of that.

So, How Do I Get High Searh Engine Rankings?

Well, here’s the deal. There are three major components of SEO. Anyone can master these three components. Once you master them, you will have no problem at all getting more Search Engine traffic to your blog, because everyone else will be caught up in the FUD.

Three Major Components of SEO

Seach Engine Optimization (SEO) can really be broken down into three major components:

  1. Keyword Research
  2. Quality Content
  3. Links

All you have to do is conduct good keyword research, write killer content that uses those keywords, and get links to your blog. It’s really quite simple!

In the next post in my ongoing blog traffic series, I will include a very simple way to do keyword research, some easy ways to get links to your blog, and I will discuss a little more about writing quality keyword rich conetnt to make the Search Engines happy. I will also talk about a few other steps I have taken to get high Search Engine rankings with this blog. None of them involve doing a Triple Lindy, or anything else too complicated šŸ˜‰

What Is The Defintion Of Anchor Text And Why Is Anchor Text Important?

August 27, 2007

Tammara at Link And Blog Challenge asked me to participate in a blogging glossary she is creating at Link and Blog Challenge. So, I agreed to define a word for her. My word is:

Anchor Text

“Anchor Text” is the text that a person clicks on to visit a page on your site. By default “anchor text” is blue text with an underline. For example, this is anchor text. In the previous sentence, the text “this is anchor text” is an example of anchor text.

Why Is Anchor Text Important?
The anchor text that you use to link to pages on your site and that other people use to link to pages on your site plays a big role in how the Search Engines rank your site. Search Engines use anchor text to help them determine what your site is about. In fact, the number of links to your site and the anchor text used to link to your site predominantly determine what keywords your site will rank highest for in the Search Engines.

Back when I started in Internet Marketing, all you had to do to rank high in the Search Engines was to exchange links with other webmasters and have them link to your site with the keywords you wanted to rank high for. That technique doesn’t work as well anymore.

Search Engines have gotten smarter over the years. A few years ago, the Search Engines started to detect if people were using the same exact text to link to your site over and over again. The Search Engines determined that this technique was easy to spot as an “unnatural” link pattern. In other words, when websites get links without asking for them, the links usually are done using a variety of anchor text. Some of the most common links used are “click here”, the full URL (ie. http://www.canimakebigmoneyonline.com/), and the website or page name. Due to this fact, the Search Engines started to lower the ranking of sites that had too many links with the same anchor text linking to them.

That is why when you trade links, buy links, and interlink your sites you should be sure to vary the anchor text between AT LEAST 2 keyword phrases (preferably more).

For example on my son’s dinosaur website for kids, I might have people link to it using the following anchor text variations:

“Dinosaurs for kids”
“Dinosaur Toys”
“Dinosaur Games”

A better method might be to include the same keywords in your anchor text, but to use different variations of that text. For instance, for our dinosaur site, if we were targeting the keyword phrase “dinosaur for kids” we might use the following three anchor text links (all of which include the words, “dinosaur”, “for”, and “kids”):

“Dinosaur website for kids”
“Dinosaur for kids”
“Dinosaur Time Machine for kids”

Either method is a good method of varying the text you ask for in your reciprocal links. Search Engines are always changing, but at the moment it is very important to vary your anchor text (especially for Google).

Internet Marketing Tips 8/24/2007

August 24, 2007

I am starting this week’s links with something different. It’s not an article on Internet marketing, but it is a great example of drawing readers in with a story:

LOT OF POKEMON CARDS THAT MY KIDS TRIED TO SNEAK BY ME
In this ad on ebay, a mom with her hands full tells a great story to sell some pokemon cards. I love this story! It is funny and makes you want to read every last word. Because the ad was so witty it has become quite viral. The person who wrote the ad, also has a blog at http://mom2my6pack.blogspot.com/ which is getting TONS of new traffic. Not only that, but she got over $100 for something that would have cost about $3. You can learn a lot from this story, be sure to check it out.

Google Proxy Hacking: How A Third Party Can Remove Your Site From Google SERPs
Dan Thies writes about a Google hack that really needs to be fixed. Black hat SEO gurus can use it to remove your site from the SERPs, just like they did to Brad Fallon’s wedding favors site last year.

Summer Slowdown Myth
Alice Seba says we should ask the question “Is it your market or you who is slowing down?” Very interesting post. I personally have not seen a slow down in traffic this summer, but I have had a slowdown in comments.

How To Launch A Membership Site – Part 4: Content and Pricing
Yaro continues his membership site series with part 4 – “Content and Pricing”. In part 4 Yaro discusses how to choose the right price for your membership site. He also discusses what type of content to provide to your members and how to provide it.

How To Launch A Membership Site – Part 5: Triggers
In part 5 of Yaro’s series, he covers pyscological triggers. I like his disclaimer at the start of the start article, because the idea of using triggers to make people buy is a hard one for me to come to grips with ethically. Ultimately, the money we earn is directly or indirectly a result of advertising that uses phsycological triggers to get us to buy. Love it or hate it that’s just the way things are.

How Not Knowing Something Makes You More Of An Expert
Very good read about what makes you an expert in your niche.

Will The FTC Investigate Google & Matt Cutts For Paid Links?
Andy Beard takes an interesting look at Google’s stand on paid links. I don’t think the FTC will ever attack Matt Cutts for the lack of disclosure on his blog. If he worked for Microsoft it might be a different story…

This World – This Next Activity Map
This Next is a new social shopping site. What is really cool is the activity map (see link above). You can actually watch people buy stuff in real time. It shows what people are buying and where they are buying it from. Very cool! Found via Jack Humphrey.

Defeating Self-Limiting Thoughts
Chris Garrett wrote a nice post about staying confident and positive by removing negative thoughts. If you want to have long term success online, you need to stay positive.

WEB USERS NOW SPEND HALF THEIR TIME VISITING CONTENT, FAR OUTPACING TIME SPENT WITH SEARCH, COMMUNICATIONS AND COMMERCE
Very interesting study showing changes in the way people are using the Internet. How can you use this to your advantage?

That’s it for this week’s Internet marketing tips from around the web.

Allan Gardyne Speed PPC Looks Very Cool

August 23, 2007

Recently, Allan Gardyne, released a product called Speed PPC. As you know from my interview with Allan, he really knows his stuff when it comes to affilaite marketing.

Last week I had lunch with a friend of mine who made over 40,000 dollars in affiliate commisions last month. At lunch, he mentioned how excited he was about getting Speed PPC. I haven’t talked with him since, but he really thought it was going to help with all the PPC campaigns he runs. If you run a lot of Pay Per Click campaigns I think it’s worth checking out Speed PPC.

About 3 years ago I used to run PPC ads for ebay products. I am extremely tempted to try that model out again with various affiliate programs, because of how easy Speed PPC makes it. From what I understand you can take an affiliate merchant’s datafeed and pull out the product names and the deeplink URL. What this means is that you can take 1000 products and create 1000 ad groups around that product, with perfectly matching ads, directly linking into the product page (via an affiliate link). All in less than 10 minutes. Back when I was running PPC campaigns, I would have paid at least twice as much money as Allan is charging for this product. It would have saved me so much time.

39 Steps To Create Your Own Online Product

August 22, 2007

A while back, Jeff Hunsaker asked me what steps I was taking to creating an online product. Since I am currently working on creating two products I merged the steps from each of them to create a generic set of steps that I am taking to create e-products. I am not including all the details, because that would give away the nature of the products.

Here are the 39 steps to create a new product:

  1. Conduct Market Research
    This is one of the most important steps in the process.

    YOU MUST KNOW YOUR MARKET!

    That is a little easier when you are part of your target market (like with my project). That said, there are many resources for doing market research. During my market research stage, I used some techniques that I learned from the Reese Report, and some that I learned from elsewhere. I am not going to go into detail on the market research that I have conducted, but I will go ahead and tell you about a simple tool I used for quick demographics research. It’s called “Microsoft adCenter Labs Demographics Prediction Tool” and it’s pretty cool. When you type in a search term the tool displays demographic data about the people who search for that term. For instance, if you type in “make money online”, you find out that 52 percent of the people searching for “make money online” are male. 26.8 percent are between the ages of 18-24 and a majority are under the age of 34. It’s not a bad way to get a quick look at your target market’s demographics. However, you will want to do a more in depth look at your market than just using the Microsoft demographic tool.


  2. Write The Business Plan
    I talked about my business plan a little while ago. In short, I filled out the business plan from the SCORE template gallery. It is an extremely useful step, one that shouldn’t be skipped.

  3. Write A List Of The Tasks That You Need To Accomplish
    This list of 40 steps is an example of the list of tasks that I created for myself. Some of the steps listed here are broken into smaller steps in my actual list.

  4. Assign Estimated Times To Complete Each Task
    You need to estimate how long each task in your task list is going to take and write that number down. When estimating how long each task is going to take, you need to allow some time for unexpected circumstances. I estimate on the conservative side, because I find that I often underestimate how long tasks will actually take.

  5. Assign Tasks From The List To Yourself Or Others
    If you are doing all the work yourself, then you will be assigning everything to yourself. If you are relying on other people to do some of the work, then you need to assign their names to the tasks they will be doing. This will help you with the next step.

  6. Create A Time Line
    It is very important to create a time line for finishing your project. Creating a deadline helps motivate you to take action. I recommend creating a Gantt chart using Microsoft Project, Microsoft Excel or with a free Gantt chart creator like ganttproject.org. A Gantt chart is a chart that tracks a project’s progress over a period of time. For those of you who are intimidated by the thought of creating a Gantt chart, or you just don’t want to, I have also developed a “lazy” method of creating a timeline. What you do is add up all the days from your estimates. Go to a calendar, and figure out when you will be done. A Gantt chart is better, because you can factor in other things like dependencies (tasks that are dependent on other tasks being completed). However, having some sort of timeline is better than nothing.

  7. Select A Domain Name
    This can be a fun process. I wrote a good article about choosing a domain name for blogs and it applies to regular websites as well.

  8. Come Up With A Name For The Product
    This goes hand in hand with previous step. You should choose a good name for your product. Names are very important.

  9. Set Up A Mailing List
    I wrote about setting up an email list two weeks ago.

  10. Promote The Mailing List
    There are many ways to promote your mailing list. In my case, I am currently only using this blog to promote my list by displaying it prominently in the upper right hand corner of the navigation. I will have to write more about promoting email lists in a future post.

  11. Choose Affiliate Management Software
    If you are going to have an affiliate program (and in most cases you should), you will need to determine what affiliate software to use. There is a plethora of choices, and I am not going to cover them in this article. I will cover this sometime in the future.

  12. Determine All The Tools And Technologies You need To Create The Product
    This can be a time consuming process. You need to figure this out early on, in order to come up with an accurate budget for your product.

  13. Incorporate
    If you are starting a new corporation for your product, then it goes without saying that you will need to incorporate. Just like with the product name, it is a good idea to choose a meaningful and memorable name for your company.

  14. Conduct Pricing Research
    There are many methods of finding the right price for your product. I recommend reading the free ebook – “Make Your Price Sell!” to learn the basics of choosing the right price for your product.

  15. Choose Payment Processor/ Merchant Account
    If you are going to take payments over the Internet, you will need to determine how you are going to handle that. In most cases, you will need to have a merchant account. There are many things to consider when choosing a merchant account, and I recommend you do some research before choosing your merchant account.

  16. Choose A Web Host And Purchase Web Hosting
    Choosing a web host can be one of the most difficult decisions you make in the process and it can be an easy decision. If you are like me and you want to find the “perfect” web host, then you will spend years and years researching web hosts until you discover…

    “All web hosts suck!” šŸ™‚

    Once you discover that all web hosts suck it will be much easier to choose one by flipping a coin, playing darts, whatever method you deem acceptable šŸ™‚

    Ok, all web hosts don’t suck! In fact I like mine, but you can certainly find some fascinating stories by searching for your favorite host along with the word “sucks”. In other words, don’t spend all your time searching for the perfect host, because there isn’t such a thing. Find a host that suits your needs, and preferably one that comes highly recommended by someone you trust.


  17. Come Up With Unique Product Launch Plan
    I strongly considered buying Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula for this launch (and I still might). However, after watching quite a few product launches and after talking with a few established Internet marketers there is a good chance that I am going to make do without the Product Launch Formula for this launch. I am putting together a product launch plan and my wife and I brainstorming ideas to make our launch out of the ordinary. If I was launching a product in a niche other than the Internet marketing arena, The Product Launch Formula would be a more appealing purchase.

  18. Create Marketing Plan
    Along with the product launch, Jill and I are coming up with a marketing plan to encourage people to buy the product. That said, I only want people who REALLY need and will REALLY use this product to purchase it. I don’t want people to buy it just because it’s the latest and greatest thing. I don’t want people to buy it because they think it will answer all their problems. I know this is likely to mean I will have less customers, but I would rather be able to sleep at night than sell the product to someone who is not going to use it and/or doesn’t need it.

  19. Purchase The Tools And Technologies I Need From Previous Step
    This is both one of the least fun steps (parting with money) and the most fun steps (getting cool new tools) of the product creation process.

  20. Create The Product
    This step needs to be broken down into many other steps. For instance, if you are creating an ebook, you will need to research the book, create an outline, write the book, create an ebook cover, etc.

  21. Decide On Delivery Mechanism(s)
    How will your customers get the product? Is it a download, does it ship on CD, is it an audio file, video, membership site, email course, etc.? You may want to offer a product in multiple formats to maximize your earning potential. For instance, if you are selling an ebook, you might want to let users also buy it in audio format or have a hard copy mailed to them. You can charge more for the various options.

  22. Consult Attorney On Legal Aspects Of The Business
    It is always good to consult an attorney to help prevent potential legal problems.

  23. Build A Swipe File For The Sales Letter Based On Similar Successful Products
    One of the first steps people use to create a sales letter is to find similar products that are selling well and “swipe” their sales letters. In other words, you leverage succesful sales letters as a guide for creating your sales letter. Don’t use these sales letters verbatim, because that can get you into legal problems for copyright violations. However, take a close look at the things in your competitor’s sales letter that convince you to buy their product. Use those same techniques in your sales letter.

  24. Create Sales Letter Based On Your Product’s Swipe File And Based On Copywriting Products That You Own
    I am currently working on creating the sales letter for the new product I will be selling from this blog.

    I own a product from Yanik Silver called Instant Sales Letters. When creating a sales letter, I like to go into the Instant Sales Letter members area and use one of the letters as a guide for writing my first rough draft of a sales letter. It helps me to focus on creating a sales letter with all the right components. I also will sometimes review some of the copywriting principles I have learned from other products I own (like Instant Web Profits System, etc.)


  25. Create Camtasia Video For Sales Letter
    While not necessary, video does increase your conversion rate. You can create a sales pitch with the video, and/or show success stories, and/or show a behind the scenes look at the product. If it is in your budget, you should definitely create a video to help sell your product.

  26. Create Camtasia Videos For Help System (optional)
    I marked this as optional, because most products don’t need video to help their users understand how to use it. However, videos that help users understand how to use the product can help, especially with more complicated products and higher end products. They can also be a major selling point and increase the percieved value of the product.

  27. Create Affiliate Training Material, Sample Ads, Sample Emails, Banner Ads, etc.
    You should create as much promotional material as possible to sell your new product. Affiliates will love all the options and they are more likely to promote your product if they have less work to do. You can also offer your affiliates training. Studies have shown that giving your affiliates training will improve their conversion rate.

  28. Create Incentives For Early Customers
    It’s important to come up with incentives for people to buy the product when they first learn about it. You should always offer an incentive for ordering immediately.

  29. Create Website That Will Sell The Product
    This is fairly self explanatory. You have to create the site that is going to sell your new product. This can be broken down into many steps, including a few steps I mention in this list.

  30. Test The Product To Make Sure It Works
    Testing is important, not only with your marketing, but also with any product you create. Make sure you have created a product that your customers will value. In fact, you need to over deliver on your promise. Make sure your product is BETTER than you say it is.

  31. Create Terms Of Service, Privacy Policy, and Membership Agreement
    You need to have good legal terms of service, privacy policies, membership agreements, financial disclosures, etc. You need to make it clear how people are allowed to use your product and/or website.

  32. Create Customer Service Plan
    Create a customer service plan to keep your customers happy. Don’t neglect your customers, they ARE your business. This might include decisions like whether or not to offer phone support, whether to have a customer support ticket system , whether to outsource your customer service, whether to have a customer support forum, etc..

  33. Create A Company News Blog And/Or An Affiliate Blog (optional)
    While blogs aren’t a necessity, having a customer/product news blog and a blog for your affiliates will help you grow your business faster.

  34. Set Up Affiliate Contest For The Product Launch (optional)
    Most product launches I have seen have run contests for their affiliates. If you can afford it, come up with a good contest for your affiliates.

  35. Recruit Affiliates
    If you have an affiliate program, you need to spend a good amount of time finding people to join your affiliate program. Having a powerful group of affiliates promoting your product will make a HUGE difference in the amount of money you make.

  36. Get Testimonials
    Testimonials offer the social proof you need to convince people to buy your product. You can never have enough testimonials. For those of you who don’t know about social proof, social proof is a psychological trigger that occurs when people see other people behaving in a certain way and, therefore, assume that behavior is the appropriate behavior to take. For instance, say you go into a new town and are trying to find a place to eat. You find two local restaraunts. At one of the restaraunts the parking lot looks pretty full, the other restaraunt only has two cars in the parking lot. Which restaraunt do you assume has better food?

    The restaraunt with more people.

    That is social proof in action. Testimonials offer social proof that your product is good.


  37. Submit Articles Promoting The Site To Article Directory (optional)
    Writing articles that other people can reprint on their website, or in their eZine is one of the most effective ways of getting free traffic to your website. Writing articles allows you to get free traffic from websites that reprint your article, you get a link to your website which in turns helps your Search Engine rankings, and allows you to develop a reputation as being an expert in your field.
  38. Write Press Release (optional)
    Press releases are an excellent way to get your online business free publicity, and free traffic. Publicity Insider has a good article on the details of writing a good press release.

  39. Hire Accountant
    Last but not least, you need to hire an accountant to take care of the millions and millions of dollars you are going to make after your product is releaseed to the public šŸ˜‰

Final Thougths

Be sure to set deadlines on each step and don’t waste a lot of time on any one step. If you spend a month trying to find a web host, you just aren’t spending your time productively.

The steps above are fairly generic, so you can use them as a starting point for the products you create.

If you would like me to write a more detailed post about any of these steps, please let me know.

Don’t Run When The Rain Pours Down On Your Business

August 20, 2007

A few months ago I was at a bookstore with my family. We were in line to check out and it started to pour down rain. My five year old son Joseph turned to his sister Hannah and said, “We will have to run fast to the car so we don’t get wet.”

Then after a short pause Joseph said, “Hey, Wait! Hannah we like getting wet!” The lady standing in front of us in line laughed and so did we. Joseph is blessed with the ability to put a smile on people’s faces.

Nice story, but what does that have to do with making money online?

There are many times when it will rain on your business. Your Search Engine traffic slows down, your site goes down, a new competitor takes some of your business away, etc. Instead of thinking of it as a horrible obstacle to your success, why not think of it as an oppurtunity to make your business even more remarkable than it already is.

Don’t run away when the rain starts falling on your business, instead enjoy getting wet every once in a while. You can choose to let the rain drown your business or to let it grow your business. The choice is yours!

What Do You Think My Blog Is About?

August 15, 2007

Chris Garrett just tagged me on a new meme he started, called “What is Your Blog About Really?”. Personally, I think of Chris’ blog as being one of the top 3 blogs about blogging.

The meme has two simple steps:

1. Tell me what you think this blog is about
2. Ask your audience what they think your blog is about!

Maybe you think my blog is about something completely different than what I think. It would be very helpful for me to know what you expect from my blog so I can see whether that’s what I’m delivering. If not, I can either tweak the message I’m delivering or the way that it’s being delivered, so that you get what you’re expecting.

I am really interested in your answer to this question, so please let me know:

What do you think my blog is about?

To keep the meme going, I tag:

Matt, Wendy, Garry, Glen, Andrea, and Carl

The Next Internet Millionaire Starts Today

August 15, 2007

I just wanted to let you know that The Next Internet Millionaire starts airing it’s first episodes today (August 15th). I do plan on watching it, because I enjoy Internet marketing and I am sucker for reality tv shows. Joel Comm found a way to ensure that I would be interested…

Anyway, let me know what you think of the show.

You Didn’t Really Think It Wouldn’t Be Work?

August 14, 2007

This has to be one of the more annoying tricks I’ve seen when people are trying to sell products about making money online: It’s the ‘quick and easy money’ approach. I’ll grant that marketing in general is not the most honest of professions, but why disappoint your customers right off the bat?

It’s become so bad it brainwashes some people, and they really think making money online is quick and easy. Now, while I don’t find it hard and grinding as compared to my former job, it is work. And if you don’t think making money online requires any time or effort, you need to get that out of your head.

Where do you think this particular delusion is going to get you? Working online is work. And if you let the endless parade of sales letters saying ‘my system is effortless and only takes minutes’, the first surprise obstacle you hit will stop you and probably keep you stopped.

Now, while working online isn’t a horror show, you will:

  • Need to learn

  • Need to put in the time

  • Become a bit more street-smart about the Net

  • Need to do things you’ve never done before

So quit listening to the sales letters and just take a moment to wrap your mind around the fact that you’ll have to work. It’s no different in this regard then starting an income anywhere else, including a traditional job. So when you begin, be ready to work, or you’re stopped before you start.

Seriously, how do you make a beautiful, sellable ebook? Find your answers today with The Ebook Walkthrough!

How To Make Money Online For Free

August 13, 2007

Guest Post by Matthew Tutt

There is now several ways for people to earn money from the Internet for free, from doing simple pieces of work. In my opinion 3 of the best ways to make money online is by using a cashback website, a paid survey website and a paid to review website.

At a cashback website you can get money every time you shop online, with a possibility of saving up to %50 of the final cost of your shopping. At a cashback website you can also get paid to click website links, and search at listed search engines.

Another great way to earn money on the Internet is from using paid survey websites. These are websites that are free to join and use, and pay you to complete simple surveys on the Internet. You get sent the surveys by e-mail and can earn around £2.50 for every 20 minute survey completed.

The final way of earning cash from the Internet is by joining a free paid review website. Though these websites are currently quite rare (I only know of about 2 paid review sites) they are still an excellent source of money. These paid review websites consist of a database of thousands of household products, all readily available to review. You could review the latest movie DVDs, or your favourite toothpaste. Every time someone reads and rates one of your reviews you earn a certain amount of money. The average money earned for every review written is around £3.50.

Internet Marketing Tips From Around The Net 8/10/2007

August 10, 2007

This week I didn’t read as many blogs as usual, because a large part of my free time was spent dealing with car troubles. On the up side, the blood work that I had done by my endocronologist came back with much better results than my last visit and that REALLY made my week.

Anyway, here are some of the really good posts that I did manage to read this week:

25 Outstanding Links to Help You Write a Compelling Tagline
Liz Strauss published an excellent list of articles on creating a compelling tagline. I haven’t created a tag line for myself or this blog. I am going to put that on my to do list.
