How To Buy A Niche-Related Domain (URL)


In my last post I went through the process of  getting a domain with your name in it…  e.g. and as far as blogging is concerned this is probably the best way to go.

But you may decide, for whatever reason, that you don’t want your name plastered all over the internet… In which case you can go for the next best thing which is a niche-related domain. (Or do what I do and get both! After all, domains are pretty cheap).

Another advantage of having a niche-related domain is that of search engine optimization (SEO)… it makes it easier for the search engines to find and index your site. Read the rest of this entry

How To Buy A Domain (URL)


One of the very first things you need to do if you want to make money online is to get your very own domain…

Now I’m pretty sure you know what a domain is, but just in case is a domain name.

Okay, so what exactly do you need to do? Well, you’ve got two choices: Read the rest of this entry


Thanks for dropping by!

I’m going to “revamp” this much-neglected blog and show you how you can make money online AND build a huge responsive list. I’m the first to admit that I’m by no means the world’s best blogger… far from it. And if you’ve been on my list for more than a few days you probably know that I hate blogging! Which is a shame because blogging can have HUGE benefits!

So if I can do it I’m sure you can! Read the rest of this entry

Hi Guys!

It’s not so long ago (probably less than a year) that I used to
cringe at the thought of writing an email or a blog post.

I was scared… scared of what people would think if I cocked-up…
Scared that people wouldn’t like me or what I said…
Scared of making a fool of myself…

Just… well, scared…!

And if you’re scared of something you try to avoid doing it!
That’s the worst possible thing you can do with email marketing…
You MUST email your list regularly or they’ll simply forget you! Read the rest of this entry


When it comes to anything artistic I’m totally useless! Even
my matchstick men don’t look like matches.

When they were giving out artistic abilities I was way at
the back of the queue.

I am to art what Picasso was to bricklaying… totally crap!

The trouble is that visitors to your squeeze page expect
something professional-looking.

Just imagine you went into a restaurant and your feet stuck
to the greasy floor. You’d leave… and so will the visitors to your site.

When I wanted decent graphics for a squeeze page I bit the bullet
and had them done professionally.

I ended up with a cracking-looking template that I use not just for a squeeze page but also a mini-site.

Take a look here:

The guy who built this for me is called Steve, and he’s at:

Tell him what you want and I’m certain he’ll create a graphics
package you’ll be proud of.

If you’re really strapped for cash and need it done free
you can get free lifetime membership to Instant Squeeze Page Generator.

With ISPG you simply choose the template and background you want,
enter your autoresponder code, and your done. They even give you free gifts to give away!

Check it out here:

The Instant Squeeze Page Generator

Of course, you my be able to create your own graphics. If so I really admire you!
Take care.

I really do wish you all the success you wish.

Keep reading my email tips. You learn a an awful lot from
your mistakes… and even more from mine. I’ve made a ton of them!

The sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll see the cash.

Want To Be A Marketer? Then You MUST Do This… (Part 3) Aweber



Just taking Buster for his evening walk when it dawned on me that
it’s my youngest son’s birthday in two days. (He’s 34. Shit…
I’m getting old!).

“No big deal,” I hear you say. Well, the problem is he lives and
works in Shanghai so it’s not quite as easy as simply putting
some money in a birthday card and posting it…

He’d probably get it in time for Christmas (if the Shanghai
postman doesn’t pinch it… I speak from experience!).

Ah well, daddy’ll just have to transfer some money into his account!

On with business!

By now you should have set up a domain and got hosting. There’s
just one thing you need to do now before getting an autoresponder
and that’s link the two together.

Don’t panic… it’s dead easy.

When you signed up your Hostgator hosting you’d have got an email
with all your account details. Open this now and you’ll see information
on your “nameservers.” (there’ll be two).

Simply open up your “domain manager” where you bought your domain,
look for “nameservers”, and copy and paste in these two bits of info.

Hey Presto! Sorted! It’ll take a little time for the change to take
place, but you’ve now got you’re website up and running!

Your Autoresponder… is one of the best tools you’ll ever have, so
get it right first time!

I started off with Aweber in February 2010 (Yep, I wish I’d started sooner!).
In that time I’ve had no problems whatsoever. Now, obviously, I can only
speak for Aweber because it’s the only one I use!

It’s really easy to use, and it’s got a shed-load of features (some
you’ll never use… I sure don’t). If you ever get stuck there’s
plenty of great tutorials…

Plus their customer support is fantastic. Ask them a question and
they’ll bend over backwards to help.

So that’s basically it for Aweber… dead easy. Get over there and
sign up now, it’s only $1 for the first month!

Click here for Aweber!

Wont be long now before you’re ready to collect some names and do some
real marketing! We need to get some graphics to make your site look
pretty. We’ll sort that out in the next email.

Want To Be A Marketer? Then You MUST Do This… (Part 2) Hosting

Hi Guys!

After such a glorious day yesterday the weather is back to normal… crap!
Just got back from taking Buster up the mountain. He’s only got little
legs and his belly gets filthy! Luckily he’s so small he fits into the
sink for a wash. My wife won’t let me put him in the washing machine
in case he blocks it! (Yes, I am joking… he’d definitely block it).

Anyway… onwards!

In my last email I waffled on about choosing and getting a domain name.
If you haven’t done it yet, get moving! If you have, well done!

Remember: whatever you want to do online you’ll need a domain…
so don’t put it off. Do it now!

Okay. So let’s assume you’ve got a domain. Next thing is to get hosting.
Think of a domain as a caravan/camper/trailer/mobile home… whatever
you call it in your neck of the world.

Now you’ve got it you need somewhere to park it… You’ve to pay ground
rent. (Sorry to use the “p” word, don’t panic it’s not that expensive!).

For my hosting I use a company called Hostgator. I use them because:
they’re cheap (I like cheap!)
their customer service is outstanding

Get over to Hostgator now and click on “View Web Hosting Plans”

(They’ve got a sale on! All the plans are cheaper than when I looked

The plans are: Hatchling, Baby, and Business

The hatchling is the cheapest, but it allows just one domain.
The Baby is a little more expensive, but allows UNLIMITED domains.

Guess which one you want!

Yep… Big letters coming up… GO GET THE BABY PLAN!

Now you got that sorted you’ll soon have your squeeze page taking
email addresses.

Give yourself a huge pat on the back!

Remember: making money online is like anything else… take no action
and you’ll get zip.

In my next email I’ll tell you which autoresponder I use… and why.

See you on the Dark Side!

Get A Domain – What Every Marketer MUST Do First!


I’ve decided to start “recycling” some of my email broadcasts and making them into blog posts. Yep, I’ve gone all green… or maybe it’s that dodgy curry I had last night!

Anyway, here’s the first. It’s all about getting a domain for your squeeze page so’s you can start building your list…

I’m really lucky where I live. Just a few minutes and a couple
of hundred yards walk and I’m up on the mountainside looking
down across the valley. Just got back taking Buster, our bichon
frise, for a stroll. Read the rest of this entry
