Hey, I’m Colin Burnett from Australia!

Will the real Colin Burnett please stand up?

Hey, I just want to put a few words up here today to introduce myself to you. After that we can get down to the business of creating a life that you want! I will tell you more about this site and so on.

After all, your experience with this blog is the most important thing right?

I’m just seeing so much kind of stiff writing out there. That really old school stuff where people write blogs and stuff like they would write an essay.

It’s not cool, just really boring to read right?

Anyway….

Who is Colin Burnett?

So I’m Colin Burnett anyway from North Queensland. Yes I talk with the typical Aussie accent…lol. So I’m one of the new generation Aussie guys on-line. We don’t copy EVERYTHING from the US but we definitely use their world class training and stuff like that…

I actually come from a farming / ranching or cattle station background so had little to do with the Internet until my mid twenties. What am I talking about I’m still only 27….

I have really put a lot of work in between traveling  in the last year and become a master blogger. I can rank content and in end-effect make money. I can’t say I make millions of dollars a year yet…..yes I said yet. That is my goal though. My end goal is to be a billionaire before I’m 60. I’m on a mission so if you wan come with me, jump on board my team.

You Can join my team right here.

I love people with goals.

I have have big dog mentors who have done things that I want to do and I’m doing it as well.

If you clicked on that link above and got in with me I have to mention that income obviously isn’t guaranteed with Empower Network as well. It is a business opportunity, not a job. The income potential is far greater than a job and what you probably ever imagined but I can’t guarantee you will work to get your business started.

So back to my story. I’m not self centered at all and am not used to talking about myself but I want to get to know you and you me. That will help us work together….a win win.

I grew up on a farm but travel a lot now. I spent a long time after school working for a family business and for a long period I wasn’t paid.

That’s the short of it.

That’s why now I just do what I want. I’m focused on my goals but those goals include helping people all around me!

So check out more blogs of mine and leave your comments and I’ll get back to you.

Cheers

Colin

Content Marketing Strategy

Importance of Having a Content Marketing Strategy

Hey there, it’s Colin back with you today.

I want to get right down to business RIGHT NOW. There are times when you need to focus in your business and times when you can party…

Today I want you to focus…

FUN Content Marketing Strategies that WORK!

Many people would say that content strategy and content marketing strategy is just the same. But what these people should know is that the 2 are different matters.

In order for a content to be used just the way it is supposed to, a content marketing strategy is necessary is necessary. Basically, this kind of plan is focusing on the needs of your audiences or customers as well as your goals while making sure that both are being served appropriately. The entire process requires certain steps to follow and will help in improving a website’s effectiveness in attracting the attention of their target audience.

There are certain stages that one should undergo to create the most effective content marketing strategy suited for the creation of a more effective content. If you are interested in learning these stages, then check out the following stages that you have to go through:

Ø  Definite the type of buyers or your entire target audience. This is an important stage as this will help you in making a content that will suit the interest of your target audience and will easily entice them to try whatever products or services you are offering.

Ø  Content mapping, gap analysis and inventorization. It is a way of targeting the right placement of topics within the content and will make website owners understand the things that their contents should be focusing on. This will also help owners to find out the conversion ability of their content and increase their customers.

Ø  Linking the brand. This is the stage where website owners should be aware on how their brand should be linked with related products or websites appropriately.

content marketing strategy

Ø  Flows, processes and editorial calendars. Once you see that everything seems to be going on the right path, it is best that you will be setting the flows and processes of the entire stages. Furthermore, you should also be preparing for editorial calendars when you can check the contents made after going through many stages. Setting up first these things before production will help you in meeting deadlines that you have set.

Ø  Content-specific KPIs and metrics. Though it is given that websites should be following certain metrics in the process of creating a content marketing strategy, it is essential that the content will be speaking a common language that any person within the online community can understand. Make sure that you are able to find the common metric on your content and use a usual language that different departments can understand.

Ø  Planning the production sharing. During the production, it does not necessarily mean that a specific department will be the only one doing the contents planned. It is best that the weight of the production will be balanced over the number of departments who can work on it and share the job for fast production.

Once you have considered doing all of these stages, there is no doubt that you can create a content marketing strategy that will work effectively on your advantage.

How to Write Good Copy

Free TIPS on How to Write Good Copy

I can stress enough how important it is to learn and get good at knowing how to write good copy.

At the start of my Internet marketing career, a few years ago, I didn’t know much about this at all. writing good copy is basically communicating well with readers through words. I guess it’s one of those things that some people are better at than others.

I’ll go through five tips below that I have learned over the last few months from some of the GREATEST marketers out there. It is cool to have good mentors and to just have them there as a base to learn off and follow when you aren’t sure exactly what you need to do. Feeling me???

How to Write Good Copy

How to Write Good Copy

So let’s get to work and go through some steps that will make it easier for you.

Steps on How to Write Good Copy

Step #1 Write like you talk. It’s that simple.

Have you heard of this before? Before I really knew much about marketing and advertising or what people do on the Internet, I always thought people had to be really professional to attract customers. Don’t get me wrong, I run a professional business and do the right thing by my customers but I don’t write proper.

It is an easy mistake to make when you get started but just don’t do it. Don’t over-complicate things and just write how you speak. You will connect better with your customers and get your message across. It is cool to see people doing it and how their personality really shows through like in the picture above :) Just remember grammar a little bit but really it doesn’t matter that much at all. be fun, be your self and write EXACTLY how you talk!

STEP #2 Be one-on-one. ‘Hey, it’s just you and me here right?’

DOn’t write as if you are giving a lecture to a million people. Write as if it’s just you and me sitting in Starbucks having a coffee or something like that. Get it? Just chill out and connect with people. When you have a business you are actually selling yourself first and then your product. People are buying you. If they like and trust you, you could potentially have a lifetime customer right in front of you! Awesome feeling or what?

Step # 3 Don’t write in massive paragraphs and long winded sentences that will confuse your reader no-end.

This point is fairly self explanatory right? You can write a lot but be direct. Don’t put too many ideas in one sentence. Makes it easier to read right? Don’t put more than a MAX of 3 sentences per paragraph and you can basically just keep writing forever! This is a massive tip on how to write good copy and keep your readers interested.

Step # 4  Tell your story.

Let people know who are. If you just be yourself, people will relate to you. Don’t try and complicate things and say stuff that isn’t true and stuff that just makes you sound like a whole different person. As with a lot of business, just keep it simple. The first blog I ever created, I made that many mistakes it just wasn’t funny from OVER-complicating stuff. I come from a farm in north QLD Australia. I think I had a fairly normal childhood and upbringing but I have found others are so interested in it. It was a lot different to some (find out more about me here)

Dumb it down and keep it straight-forward and real!

Step #5 Break your article up with pictures and videos.

It makes for way cooler reading and will keep your readers engaged. Who just wants to look at words all day right? These pictures will also help you heaps with your SEO if you are blogging or running a website (learn more here).

So these are a few tips that I have put together for you to learn how to write good copy.

Remember, practice makes perfect so just get out there and start writing.

Free SEO Services

Where to find the Best Free SEO Services

Well if you are getting started on-line, you are probably looking for some good value free SEO services.

G’day my name is Colin anyway and I’m an Aussie!

I come from outback Queensland. It’s a pretty crazy story actually, I didn’t really have a normal upbringing. I grew up on an outback cattle station with remoteness that most people cant even imagine.

I mean the nearest town was 90 kilometres away and I did primary school at home!

For high school I had to go away to a boarding school. There wasn’t much other option. I lived at this school in another fairly small town with about 300 students.

That is a world away from the amount of traveling that I have done this year. I live more for the moment these days and want to take your mind with me. I want you to close your eyes and imagine exactly what you want to be doing right now!

What is it? Are you surfing on the coast of Australia? Are you roaming the streets of New York?

Anyway blogging is widely regarded as the cheapest way to build a following of awesome customers online.

Here are some Free SEO services and techniques YOU can use.

This guy just talks normal sense doesn’t he?

There is no point trying to reinvent the wheel. That will just mean you make mistakes and it will cost you money. Bad form.

Hell I know some people who are really set on reinventing the wheel.

That’s just crazy. It reminds me of a time when I was like that. It’s actually a funny story.

I used to get around at school and get really angry at people who laughed at me for being wrong. I just didn’t want to be wrong lol. I got it from my father, he wanted to be right all the time. The truth though is that you can’t be right all the time! The thinking of mine then was nothing like what it is now, I changed….

You need to learn!

So one day at school I’m sitting there with my girlfriend and I was kind of all tensed up if a kid walked past and was cheeky and I couldn’t get get the right words together o come back. Anyway it happened, a kid walked past and tried to gee me up and I was all fired up and couldn’t come back.

I was so frustrated that I just punched the wall. My girlfriend just kind of walked away and then we met up in our next break.

I said look I’m sorry for embarrassing you BUT she said look, the fact that you aren’t happy about who you are is the disappointing part. That’s the depart that I don’t like and no body is going to like.

It took me years to realize what she was talking about BUT now it is a clear!

so before I get off sidetracked too much, Free SEO services will help you rank your blog. I have a couple of blogs and I use them to communicate with my followers.

Are Free or Paid SEO Services the best for YOU?

should you use free SEO services ?

It depends.

Since Google has evolved further into 2014,thinks like article marketing and blog commenting for back-links have become less cool. Check out these ‘ShortCutts‘ for more info on how SEO has evolved.

So free SEO techniques used to work better. You can still spend a lot of time getting high quality backlinks nowadays and boost ahead in the rankings. The trick is though that you need to really know what you are doing.

Basically, if everything you are doing for SEO is free, you have little chance of gaining traction in this industry.

So a good mix of paid and free SEO will give you a good start in getting ahead in the search engines without being penalized by Google algorithm updates. We all want to steer clear of the sandbox don’t we!?!

I personally outsource about 80% of my SEO. This is based on choice. I know people who just spend more time doing SEO themselves as well….you can choose!

I do however obviously pay for the outsourcing and also training to keep up with the news.

Moz is an example of how I keep track of SE updates. Technically another one of those Free SEO Services. The Pidgeon, like those before has changed the SEO world forever.

So basically I use a lot of good paid backlink services to help boost my site in Google but also spend time doing free stuff to buind my site into the best it can be! I have people working with me to make this one of the best knowledge places on-line. Thatis my goal.

Pros and Cons Of Free SEO

Pros

You save money! Most individuals start a blog or a website with a limited budget and can do with saving as much cash as they can. Free SEO techniques such as finding back-links, writing your own content and learning yourself are ways you can save cash.

You are the expert! Even if you were to outsource 100% of your SEO, it doesn’t hurt to know your stuff. As with any business, you need to be able to keep your finger on the pulse to make sure you are heading in the right direction.

Cons

Doing your own free SEO services are time consuming. If you were to do more that half your SEO for free, you would find yourself spending many hours in front of a computer. This can be detrimental to your health and relationships around you….seriously!

You might get it wrong. I personally have too spent hours doing the wrong thing. It is alright if it doesn’t penalize you in the search engines but it still is a waste of time. Some things such as getting high quality back-links are sometimes better left to the experts.

Cost. SEO is getting more and more expensive. That is the main reason why I don’t outsource all of my SEO. If you are just getting started, it can ultimately lead to your business failing if you don’t have a reasonable SEO budget.

Should you use Free SEO Services?

Basically it is up to you.

If you have less cash and more time, go right ahead and start learning how to do it yourself.

If you are a businessperson already, then you might just learn the basics of SEO yourself and outsource everything right from the start.

Most of us just find a happy medium :)

I will be back soon with some more free SEO services and I hope you got something from this post. Leave your thoughts below!

Cheers,

Colin

Best MLM Companies

What Are The Best MLM Companies?

Hey there Folks, it’s Colin here again today :)

Well der, it’s always me!

I want to talk to you today about the best MLM companies that are out there to help you get started online. If you are like me a few years ago you mint be reading this and thinking you can just brush all this advice aside and get started…..you will waste a lot of time and money.

Let me explain more what I call the Best MLM Company period.

It just doesn’t happen like that. You see, when I first started investing, I though I would just rewrite the rules! You see a lot of people and successful start-ups who look like they are rewriting the rules. The truth is though that the products or services may but the business structure will be very similar to others. Successful people will model themselves off other successful companies and people.

I learnt that the hard way! I was a pig headed, big egoed wannabe when I started! I though I was the best MLM company out there.

But anyway If you know my story, the basics are that I worked for mother family business in a farm way out in outback Australia. I worked for a few years including the last 2 not getting paid then I left. I took a stand for myself and made my life into what it is today.

So what do you think the best MLM company is?

some of the best mlm companies online or offline

The truth is that you have to brand yourself and undergo a total transformation before you can ever expect to draw customers towards you. There are a few of the best MLM companies out there that you would probably have similar results with no matter which one you are affiliated with.

A few good on-line mlm companies are:

Empower Network

My Lead System Pro

DS Domination

And so on….

Some Good off-line companies are…

Amway

Herbalife

etc….

I can’t vouch for exactly how these companies operate as I am not an affiliate of them. The on-line ones, I am affiliated with.

So people are actually buying you, not the product…

I am here to tell you today that you have an opportunity of making money with all of the legitimate best mlm companies on-line or off-line. All good companies have an income disclosure and won’t guarantee you any income as this is a business opportunity. Therefore it is not actually the business that you are affiliated with that is important.

There are so many successful people out there who sell so much stuff for what appears to be no good reason. They have have simply a lot more success than the others.

Why? Because you need to work on yourself.

Would you go to a doctor to ask for advice if he had only finished half his degree and internship?

You need to build your knowledge and become an expert in your niche. That’s how people like Dave Wood and Dave Sharpe have been so successful before and also now with Empower Network. It is one of the top performing companies online and they created it!

So that’s how the world works, you need to give heaps of value before expecting anything in return.

It also gives you the feeling that you are doing the right thing…. 

Because you are. When I first got started, I didn’t understand the products I was promoting and therefore didn’t feel comfortable promoting them. Now that I know they contain heaps of value, I help people with them. I started making money online from helping people. What more could you want?

So I’m telling you that you need to sell great products from a good company but if it is the very best or not…..doesn’t matter at all. It also shouldn’t be something that you are focused on….

If you are looking to join one of the very best companies around at the moment, you can get their signature blog beast platform here for only $25. That is how I got started making money and more importantly, I am helping people get started understanding the Internet world right now.

So If you are thinking about the best MLM company, get a start today and I will be here to help!

You can grab the signature product here for only $25.

Cheers

Ezinearticles Review

Top Class Ezinearticles Review

Are you looking to an EASIER way to rank in Google with this ezinearticles review?

So I’m Colin Burnett, the Aussie traveler. That’s me in the pic above in the sea off the Greek island of Crete. Did I ever think I would make it to one of the biggest tourist destinations like that ever? No, not back when I didn’t believe in my own ability.

Anyway, I am a blogger, Internet marketer and wealth creation guy. I have learnt the hard way about what works and what doesn’t through many mistakes and learning curves. Article marketing is one of the areas I really struggled with.

What can Ezinearticles do for you?

Ezinearticles review

Ezinearticles review

Ezinearticles is a place where you can upload genuine, unique articles while will rank better than your other content in google. This isn’t a given though. Bas dally it will rank higher than your site if your site is new or doesn’t have authority. Heard of google authority before?

The difference is that Ezinearticles is already respected by google. This won’t guarantee your stuff will rank on first page but if it has the right SEO it has a better chance to. If it has the right keyword plus right SEO, it has a massive chance of making it to the first page.

This Ezinearticles review is meant to inspire you.

You need to realize that there is always a way around any obstacle. If you have an affiliate blog and need traffic quicker, try sites like this. There are also a few other good sites like this that will give you similar results.

There are a few problems with getting started with Ezinearticles too though. Your content has to be good. It really has to be good quality and free from spam and kind of unethical stuff. If it isn’t, your account will simply be shut down. I think the biggest problem people have is finding content to post.

If you really are the type that doesn’t like writing, you can get in and get content done for you! Once you have the keyword, there are literally hundreds of sites that you can use to get articles written by real people. Sound cool?

You can go to a site like fiverr or Elance for example and get a 500 word article written for you for only $5 or so. You can then use this quality content and promote it on sites like Ezinearticles.

Have you learnt much from this Ezinearticles review yet?

I am simply here to serve you, that’s the purpose of this blog. That’s why I started it and spend time everyday building it. Since I became an Internet marketer, I have built my knowledge about what works and what really doesn’t work.

Are you sick of finding the wrong advice? Well I have blog posts on page 1 of google and a great mentor teaching me to keep it that way. I’m constantly improving my knowledge and will post it here for you.

All you have to do now after this Ezinearticles review is to take some action.

Start an account and upload some articles. You can then enjoy the enhanced attention you will get!

Ezinearticles Review – Video Training

SEPTEMBER 2014 UPDATE – Should I still Article Market?

According to Google’s Matt Cutts, no. Article marketing is now more in the category of blog commenting, it isn’t the most effective thing to do anymore.

As has always been the case, it is really important firstly to get great content on your blog, website or video and THEN market it. So Article Marketing with these big sites is basically saturated and isn’t that effective anymore. If you have been in the SEO game for a while now, you will be used to stuff like this happening and the game simply changing.

So as part of this Ezinearticles review, I have to mention this big problem now. It really is not the most effective technique anymore.

SO you can use the latest news to decide for yourself if you will bother trying article marketing still or not.

 

Cheers,

Colin

P.S. Great weather here in Atlanta, Georgia! (Only visiting) :)

How to Make a Good YouTube Video

Hey guys, I’m going to cut to the chase today. If you want to know how to make a good YouTube video, I’m not going to beat around the bush. We all have limited time and want to achieve the things we set out to.

Check out this video I made to get you RANKING!!!….

Colin Burnett – How to Make a good YouTube video

So after watching that you should be inspired to build a business and start living the lifestyle you deserve!!!! If you can’t seem to find any motivation at all, then I’m sorry but the truth is that your life will stay the same. If you want it that way, that’s ok but if you want change, bad luck.

So I will get straight down to work today and show you my notes.

How to make a good YouTube video – 7 Steps + a final tip

1 Break Mindset/Capture Attention

It is important to do something interesting or exciting to start your video. Can you really just think of something to do right now? It isn’t that difficult not to be boring!! Just break people’s attention and get them interested in watching on. Be Creative!

2 Make sure you over deliver on value.

Videos are good for all types of people. You can waffle a lot or just be straight to the point. Even if your video is the most boring thing ever, you can still sell with it. SO the main thing is to eventually get to the point and overdeliver on value. Always address the topic and keep to your promise. OVER deliver!

3 Tell your story

Talk about yourself. I mean make sure you introduce yourself and just tell everyone who you are and where you come from. This will help people relate to you! I come from a farm in North QLD Australia and a lot of people find it interesting as heck!

4 Talk in an Active Voice

Be energetic and talk about how you want people to do stuff. After all you are a teacher in your videos. Don’t be afraid to say things like ‘Definitely include this in your You Tube video’. Don’t be afraid to tell people what to do and how to do it. After all you are an expert of the topic right?

5 Just be yourself!!

I see some guys trying to be over excited or kind of analytical when they aren’t naturally. Just practice a few videos and you will find your voice. Will make your videos much easier to make. It might even take up to 25-30 videos until you feel comfortable. Even with skydiving, after you do it about 180-220 times, the adrenalin is completely gone! crazy huh? You can do this!

6 Quote somebody else.

This is more powerful than you think. If you actually quote someone else (who is successful) while marketing anywhere you can say different stuff and people will still listen to you! If the person you are quoting is credible, your audience will be calmed even if the quote is provocative! So can get your point across that way. This is a really cool tip on how to make a good YouTube Video.

7 Calls to action

This is easily the most important part of how to make a good YouTube video. You really need to tell people to do what you want them to do. Maybe you want them to look at a product you are offering or click on a link you have below the video, just make sure you ‘close’.

Why is YouTube so Massive?

Have you ever noticed just how many videos show up when you Google something?

I didn’t know for a long time that people actually go to YouTube and search for stuff. I mean I have done it for ages but simply didn’t think about it. So that means that if you put a video up on YouTube and get it to rank somehow….you will be seen!!! Depending on what the search term is, you could get thousands of views.

SO that is why it is a massive marketing tool. It is also simple to use! Anyone can upload a video as long as it isn’t illegal. That is why you need to learn how to make a good YouTube video.

There are also a few other big video sharing platforms out there. You can use these as long as YT to market whatever you are trying to sell.

So that is my take on how to make a good video. I have learned from some guys over the years how to capture attention, keep it and tell people what to do.

If you are hesitant, just get out there and give it a try! Once you get over the initial fear, all will be cool… It is the same with anything.

Successful Social Media Campaigns

Successful Social Media Campaigns

Have you ever run any successful social media campaigns that have actually paid for themselves?

I’m guessing it was a struggle. It really can be can’t it to kind of wade through all of the misinformation out there. When I first started out on the Internet, I though Social media was easy. Put your hand up of you thought you can just shoot any video, upload it to YouTube and it would go viral! Doesn’t quite work that way right?

Successful Social Media Campaigns Explained.

As I said in the video, you need a plan of attach for using social media. You would have to be very, very lucky to have a viral video. SO let’s forget about luck and attack social media with a clear, focused plan for success.

Here are a few tips to get started…

#1 You have to be promoting something people want and what is also ethical.

If you are just shooting a video about some random topic, you probably won’t create a huge following. Therefore, you need to find out what people want. Are there a lot of people looking for tools to get them started out on the Internet for example? Yes there is.

# 2 You have to get in front of the right people.

It’s as simple as that. As I said in the video above, I know a lot of people who make this simple mistake. For example they are trying to sell womens bicycles to young teenage boys. It simply doesn’t fit. This is where social media can really shine. With platforms such as Face Book, geo and niche targeting is possible. This means that you really can get in front of the right audience. I have advertised to 10 000 people before and not had much interest at all. That’s because they were the wrong people.

Aaron Rashkin said :

You need to get the RIGHT message in front of the RIGHT people at the RIGHT time. It’s as simple as that.

#3 You need to have the right budget and right mindset.

Just throwing money at social media with no real plan can really hurt your business in two ways. Firstly you can become discouraged that it’s not working and secondly it can cause cash-flow problems. Even if you are only spending little amoutns, it all ads up in the end. This could in end effect cause your business to fail.

So what are some platforms for successful social media campaigns?

1 Face Book

2 Linkedin

3 Youtube

4 Google Plus

These are just a few of the ones you can use. Things change but Face Book really is popular at the moment. It is easy and simple to use, test and get results. As I said about though, you really need to focus down on one thing at a time.

For example, if you are a blogger, stick with that until you have mastered it and so on. Get what I mean?

I didn’t get that for a long time and ended up failing terribly at all sorts of things for a long time. I was too young, inexperienced and didn’t have a good mentor that I listened to. I am sharing these results with you so that you don’t make these same mistakes.

I hope you got a lot from this ‘successful social media campaigns’ post.

Aweber Review

Hello and welcome to my site and this Aweber review.

If you are new to the Internet or have been around for a while as well, you might be looking for the best emailing program out there. So to give you an intro to this topic, I have put this video together for you.

Aweber Review by an Aussie living in an Igloo (basically)!

SO after kind of giving you a general introduction….

Here are some more email marketing secrets…

Many an online business has been made, or broken, by a single email marketing campaign. If you do it right it can go viral, driving massive traffic to your website. If you do it wrong often though, you can lose credibility with your customers. Read this article in full to find tips and techniques to teach you how to do it in a way that benefits your company. It is amazing how you really have to just keep testing emailing techniques. It is a matter of trial and error.

  • Data mine your email list and bucket your audience into various segments based off of any profiling data you have. This will allow you to be more strategic with your messaging and effectively increase your chances of higher open and click through rates. Even if you don’t have profiling, look to geo-targeting. People in different areas also open their emails at different times of the day. The good thing about aweber is that you can schedule what time your emails go out.
  • Honestly, make it really easy for your customers to un subscribe or get off your list. this is beneficial for you and them. You only want the people who are going to put effort in and are interested in what you do.
  • Attachments look quite dodgy when you send out emails. this is fully understandable. Don’t do that too much or you will be seen as some one who really doesn’t run their business ethically.

As part of this Aweber review, I want to give you a brief introduction to how to operate it.

The training they provide on their site is great. Watch the video above and that will get you started as well. Before you get started, I will give you a few pros and cons to go with this Aweber Review.

Advantages of Aweber

Let’s look at why you should buy Aweber….

  • Quick broadcasts. You can log on and write an email and send it really quickly. THis means you can get in touch with your subscribers really quickly.
  • Training. You can learn more about how to use the exact features of Aweber really quickly.
  • Followup series. Before I knew anything about email marketing, this blew my mind. You can set up a series of emails that automatically go out in a particular order. They start going out once someone subscribes to your list. So you don’t have to always be emailing at one time. This is a good way for people to get used to getting emails from you.

Disadvantages of Aweber

What are the worst points in this Aweber review?

  • Aweber was hacked not that long ago. It slowed down everyone’s marketing and there was a public outcry. Now this happens to the best of us but it made other programs like Get response more popular for a while. Now it is basically up to you but this didn’t change anything for a lot of loyal Aweber subscribers. You can also check out a great Getresponse review here.
  • They can charge you for having non subscribers on your account too. This means you should delete them often just to save a bit of extra cash.

 

When you know what to do, creating an email marketing campaign will be easy, effective and profitable. You’ll better your online reputation while building profits, and the initial investment of both time and money is small.
