I’d rather kiss a fish :-)

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Its one year today since I left my old job and started to make a living selling “stuff” on the internet. I think a minor celebration is in order:-   I think I can actually mention Fu-sh*t-su now, hell its been a year, still there is that clause in my “exit” agreement that says I cant say bad things about […]

Two useful free tools for you today. Head over to Marc Quarles blog and you can pick up a tool that evalutes a clickbank product based on its refund / chargeback rate. You can also find a handy affiliate link cloaker. I am a big fan of Marc who is part of the guys involved […]

Monday, August 28th, 2006

Interesting developments for webmasters over at Google. The Big G has launched Webmaster Central which seems to pull togther several tools and info pages that Google has provided for sometime plus introducing some others. Its good to see this info accesible all from one page at last!

Keep an eye on the Gurus.

One site I use a lot to keep up with the Internet Marketing World is IM News Watch . To be honest I actually find the main page on the site to be a bit disorganised, the site could use some better navigation. However there is nothing else quite like it and it does give you a broader […]

$0 to $10K a day in less than 90 days?

Friday, August 25th, 2006

Interesting new video from well know internet marketers Brad Fallon and Andy Jenkins.I got an email about this one from three different lists I am on in the space of about an hour, so its being heavily promoted! He took one site to $10k a day in sales in less than 90 days. Its shows some interesting “Hot […]

AdSense Confidential – Yeah Right!

Thursday, August 24th, 2006

Just reading one of the many (30+ !) emails about Internet Marking I get every day and it struck me how stupid some of this stuff has become. Essentially its an email that’s pushing a workshop / seminar. (In fact that’s all the gurus seem to do these days, its an endless round of flying […]

Writing Articles – whats hot, whats not!

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006

Content creation and article writing to be specific seems to be the in-topic at the moment. There is a nice post on Marc Quarles blog for those who just hate writing. Then if you head on over to the blog of Matt Cutts (rather famous Google employee) you will see even he’s telling us what sort of content […]

Article Submission Hell, Is There A Solution?

Monday, August 21st, 2006

I have spent most of today writing a few articles for some of the sites I am building. Writing the things is time consuming enough but submitting them to article directories is even worse. Which is why I have been looking around for some decent article submisson software for some time. Submitting articles to the […]

Thanks Clickbank :-(

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

A few changes have been going on over at clickbank. Now things happen slowly at clickbank, it always seem to me they operate an “if it aint broke don’t fix it policy”. Anyway this means I don’t often check their news page (it dosent even have an RSS feed so you cant monitor it!) which […]


Saturday, August 19th, 2006

Came across a nice article by a guy called Ray Edwards which I thought summed up a lot of the problems with trying to make a full time living from Internet Marketing. This is what got my head nodding in agreement “Most people struggling to build an online business are too busy buying the latest […]
