Only My Family and Paris Could Keep Me From NAMS

Edited – I wrote most of this blog post while I was staying with my family in Germany and didn’t get a chance to finish it before we left. NAMS 8 just wrapped up in Atlanta and I missed it. There are only handful of things that could keep me from attending my favorite Internet […]

Happy Independence Day

David Perdew asked me to record a short, 10 minute audio message on what independence means to me. It will become part of his Celebrating Independence series. I haven’t had a chance to record the audio yet, but I have spent some time thinking about this and am getting ready to jot down some notes […]

Some Thoughts On Kindle Publishing

Fair warning … I’m writing today’s blog post more for myself than for you. Please excuse the indulgence, but hopefully you’ll be able to get something out of it as well. I’ve been doing a lot of reading on Kindle publishing over the past six months or so. I have owned a kindle for well […]

This Is Why I’m In This Business …

Read A Book Lately?

I’ve been out sick the past few days (which explains the lack of new posts). I’ve been spending a lot of time laying in bed, napping and reading. And last night I had a thought … Let me back up for a minute. At a recent Internet Marketing conference (NAMS 6), I heard Terry Dean […]

Email Conversion Rate – Customers Vs. Subscribers

I recently shared some numbers about the email conversion rate for a solo email message I sent to two of my lists. The email message was the exact same, the offer I was emailing about was the same, and I sent them at the same time, yet one converted at 2% while the other converted […]

Getting Back The Swing Of Things

It’s been awfully quiet on this blog the past few weeks, hasn’t it?  I got busy with a few other projects that you’ll be hearing about in the coming days and weeks and then had family visit with us over Spring Break. And here’s the weird thing about not blogging for a few days… It […]
