Buyer’s remorse :-(

One of the things that probably annoys vendors online more than anything is buyers remorse, that is those people who buy all and sundry on their credit/debit card then realise they can’t afford it and promptly demand a refund. I’m not talking about serial refunders here, just those folks who genuinely can’t afford what they’ve…

What happens with your online biz if you’re ill…

I know I’ve been quiet this couple of weeks (not that anyone has probably noticed), but I’ve been dying from toothache if that is at all possible. I had some root canal work done over a week ago, subsequently developed an infection and have been in raging pain ever since with my face resembling that of…

Why are you making it so hard for me to comment on your blog…

I have to admit I’ve been a tad lax in my blogging efforts just recently due to being really busy with our launch n stuff. But I’m back with a vengeance now and seeking out blogs to comment on etc as well as writing my own. One thing I wanted to mention though (and I…

Sod’s law dictates that..

Anything that can possibly go wrong will do so and I sure have been feeling the effects of that law just recently. It’s been one thing after another this week and to be honest I’m just about at the end of my tether with it all, I’m tired and crabby and I’m ready for a…

What a fantastic EMP relaunch we had…

What a brilliant awesome fantastic relaunch of EMP we had last week. I’m sat here stuned at how well it actually went. In fact I suspect it probably did a lot better than the original one seven years ago, so thanks a heap to Simon Warner and Richard Fairburn for making it happen. And I’m…

I’m the worlds worst email marketer…

One of my biggest failings is I don’t email my lists often enough and before anyone tut tuts I know I’m crazy stupid and yes I intend to rectify it shortly as part of my new long term goal. When I think about it I have absolutely no idea and no excuse as to why…

Stuck for a product to sell? (then use PLR)

I think one of peoples favorite excuses not to build a web or membership site is because they think they don’t have the content to put on it. Well I’m here to tell you that is no excuse whatsoever and there is a heap of content out there if you just want to look for…

So the Warrior Forum is joining Freelancer…

I guess I’m a bit late off the mark with this bit of news, but was a tad busy yesterday when I first heard the news to write about it. I guess the first thing I should do is congratulate Allen Says on the sale and say good luck on his future enterprises (If he…

I faced and overcame one of my fears…

One of the things I hate most in IM is doing video or audio interviews. To be honest I hate it so much I’ve turned down countless opportunities to be interviewed over the years, which is crazy when you consider how much free exposure I’ve missed out on for my Internet business. I think a…

Why I won’t give up nursing…

I’ve been asked a number of times why I’m still going out to work a couple of days a week and to be honest after the last 3 rather crappy days I’ve had on the wards, I sometimes wonder that myself. But I guess I’m fooling myself because at the moment anyway and despite the rotten…

Yikes I’ve come down with Shiny Object Syndrome..

Ahh shiny object syndrome, a malady that strikes at most Internet marketers at some point in their online career. I’ve always warned folks about buying stuff they don’t need, yet I have to admit I’ve bought more than my fair share of the latest online gizmo’s over the past several years that lay unused cluttering up…

Build it and they will come…

Did you ever watch that film ‘field of dreams’? where Kevin Costner started hearing voices telling him to build a baseball field in the middle of his farm? Everyone thought he was bonkers, but once he built it, then hordes of folks started turning up etc… Well I hate to disappoint anyone, but that was…

How Do YOU approach someone to promote (JV) your product!

After posting my JV post further below it got me thinking about how folks go about inviting others to promote their product especially if the person they are approaching is a well known ‘guru’ Back in the day I used to get a lot of requests to promote other marketer’s stuff, (I still get requests…

I’ve just sacked a customer and boy does it feel good…

One of the most satisfying things when you have toiled and sweated online is selling your products to those people eager to buy them. There is nothing quite like getting the notification emails from your payment processor of choice to tell you you’ve made a sale. In fact, I’m such a sad person that when…

Are you a spelling/grammar Nazi? (Because I am)…

I was reading a blog post earlier today about spelling and grammar and it really got me thinking about a pet hate of mine which is spelling and grammatical errors, especially in sales pages. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ll admit to making the odd spelling and grammatical error, but on the whole I’m a bit…

Happy Mother’s Day…

It’s Mother’s day here in the UK and I must confess to feeling slightly maudlin over it as I don’t have a mother to send a card to any more. (I’ve been thinking about her a lot today). My mum Sheila died 5 years ago in August when she was 74, she’d been ill for…

Outsourcing is easypeasy (Part 3)

The last time I discussed outsourcing we talked about getting writers for articles etc. Today I want to touch on the topic of coders and programmers, which can be a very touchy subject because I’ve found in my quite long experience working with coders that some of them can have pretty huge ego’s and fragile…
