Have you ever driven your car onto a frozen lake, parked, cut a hole in the ice, and started fishing? This might sound like an unusual idea if you’re from warmer climates. Why would someone sit on iced-over water for hours, freezing themselves silly, waiting for fish to wake up from their cold slumber and bite at their hook?
One way to make this sport more bearable is to build yourself an ice-fishing shanty. About the size of a garden shed, this is a small structure towed out onto the...
I know firsthand how difficult it can be to continually come up with new topics for your emails.
The first 20 are easy.
The next 30 aren’t too difficult.
The next 50 take work.
And once you’ve done a few hundred emails, you’re pretty sure you’re just writing the same things over and over again – most likely because you are.
If you want to keep your emails fresh, interesting and even exciting for your readers, then it’s time to step up your game and find...
Thanks to Covid-19, businesses have been pushed from the offline to the online world at record speed, making digital marketing more competitive than ever.
How can you compete in 2021?
1: If you haven’t already, it’s time to get serious about putting out plenty of great content. Whether it’s one sentence on social media or an entire white paper, you need lots of content continually flooding the internet daily.
2: Change the size of your content. Instead of making super long...
Maybe it's the thrill of writing something that could potentially go viral, or maybe they've just been bitten by the blogging bug. Either way, there are plenty of bloggers out there who write specifically to entertain and bring a smile to someone's face.
But this type of blogging is generally more for fun than for profit.
To make money with your blog, you’ll want to focus on keyword phrases and questions your target audience is actively searching for.
When you help people solve...
When it comes to marketing your business, there’s a lot to think about. Why invest in content curation? Let’s talk through some of the benefits.
First, content curation must be a piece of a larger content marketing strategy. Still, need to pull a plan together? Check out the Hubspot guide listed at the end of this article to get started laying out a content marketing strategy. (Did we curate a useful resource within a curation post? Yep. So meta.)

Emojis aren’t just for friends; they’re the ultimate magnet for capturing your customers’ attention, increasing user engagement, and even helping to close sales.
The funny thing is that most businesses think emojis are best left to 16-year old girls:
“We want to maintain a professional appearance to our customers, which is why we will never use emojis in any of our communications,” said the out-of-touch company executive to the marketing team struggling to...
This isn’t about selling t-shirts, but rather the lesson we can learn from t-shirt sellers that will put money in our pocket before creating the product.
When you sell shirts on T-Spring, you’re not committed to investing any money until you have the orders in hand.
Let’s say your goal is to sell 50 t-shirts at $15 apiece. You advertise on social media, and buyers commit to purchasing the actual shirts. But until you reach the 50 order mark, or whatever number you’ve...
Have I told you lately how much I LOVE recurring income?
Here’s a brief case study about a guy who has not one, but FOUR different newsletters that he puts out twice per month.
These are super simple newsletters that contain all the latest stuff he’s found on the internet about the topics.
How in the world does he find all the latest news, articles, blog posts, stories, video clips, photos, and so forth?
Yup, it’s that easy.
He creates a dozen or so Google...
Headlines are the "make or break," "do or die" piece of your content. Think of all the times you've scanned title after title before clicking on the headline that stopped your scroll.
73% of people admit to skimming blog posts, while only 27% consume them thoroughly. Without a compelling headline, your content won’t receive the eyes it deserves.
But what exactly are headline grabbers? And how do you write one that stands out among the black-and-white sea of copy monotony? Most...
This will only work if you like to write emails and create products, or whether you're able to outsource email composing and product development.
But this is so straightforward and clean; I thought it's worth mentioning.
There is a gal I know who never, actually promotes affiliate merchandise to her list. She just won't do it.
Rather, she only promotes her products.
Every day she writes and sends out a new email to her list.
Then when she is done marketing that one, she'll proceed to another...
