I had the opportunity to review a website that allows you to design a free logo. Here are my thoughts about the service. It is rather easy to use and they give you a lot of different designs to choose from. It can be really good if you are trying to come up with a new idea for a logo and you are stumped. However, they make you pay to download the design. To me that is misleading. I don’t like it when places claim to be free and then when you go to use them you have to pay to use what you created. My advice to this company would be to drop the word free from the name and say simple logo service or easy logo service. Just my two cents. I do like the site. I just don’t like having to pay for something that has been advertised as free. However, if you need a logo and don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for a graphic designer, this option may be good for you. You can check them out by going here: http://www.freelogoservices.com/
I know a lot of people were running special offers during Thanksgiving weekend and on Cyber Monday. I personally decided not to run any specials during that time because I felt like it would be unfair to my clients that paid my full rate during the other times of the year. Plus I’m not totally convinced that Black Friday shoppers become regular price shoppers during the rest of the year. So that’s why I didn’t run any Thanksgiving specials. Will I run any specials during Christmas? Maybe, but they will be for current clients only as I think that’s only fair.
Today you guys are fortunate enough to read a guest post by one of my buddies, Nicole Dean. This will be all about helping virtual assistants understand plr. Enjoy
***start guest post**
Here’s a question that I received today. I thought it was such a valuable question that I wanted to share my response.
I hear you talking about PLR articles, but I’m a Virtual Assistant, not an Internet Marketer. I need clients, not content.
Why should I care?
Dear Virtual Assistant:
Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to respond to your great question.
PLR content can actually help you to get more clients. And, I’ll explain how.
As someone who hires and works with a lot of Virtual Assistants in my business, I’ll tell you that I hire oftentimes based upon the knowledge that person shows just as much as what they “say” they can do.
For instance, let’s compare two Virtual Assistants (hypothetically – these aren’t real people).
Susie and Tessa.
I go to Susie’s website and she’s got three pages – including contact, services, and pricing. I look around a little and discover that Susie specializes in videos and multimedia. I think “hmmm… interesting” and then leave.
Next, I find Tessa’s website. She’s got the same pages on her website as Susie – contact, services, and pricing. It looks to me as if she also specializes in videos and multimedia. That’s not what I’m looking for, so I’m about to leave when I notice that she has a blog. On her blog, she’s got articles about how I can use video in my business and how to also use video to get more traffic and make more money. I’m interested. She obviously knows her stuff. I contact her to find out how she can help me to get more traffic with my existing videos – and to brainstorm more videos that I can incorporate into my business on an ongoing basis.
Tessa got my business. Susie did not.
Why? Because Tessa did some things right.
She showed her knowledge.
She demonstrated that she understands marketing by having a blog.
She made me think about my business.
She seemed like a person who I’d like to work with.
How does this apply to PLR content? Easy.
Susie could have had my business if she had purchased some great quality PLR content and published it on her blog. Of course, as always, I would recommend that Susie use the content as a starting point only and then add her own ideas and examples into it to make it uniquely hers. But, the important thing is that she could have had an active blog offering great value to potential new customers that showcased her talent and made people desperate to hire her.
And, she could have done it for under $20.

Did you know that billions of greeting cards get sent each year? That’s right. According to Hallmark, Americans sent approximately 1.5 billion Christmas cards. During Mother’s Day 139 million cards were sent. That’s a lot of cards, folks. How would you like to earn some money related to that industry? Now you can.

A lot of blogging software is specifically designed to be
simple to use, but even the least intimidating blogging
program can feel very overwhelming to somebody who
has not spent a lot of time learning the ins and outs of
different kinds of software. Particularly for newer
bloggers, learning how to use the interface of blogging
software is the most difficult part of blogging. If you are
somebody who feels comfortable expressing themselves
in another medium, it may prove to be well worth your
time and effort to learn blogging software, but that
doesn’t mean that the task will be easy.
If you run a small company, you may find that the world
of blogging for business owners is a world that you
want to be a part of. Blogging is a great way to get the
word out to consumers about your product or service,
and it can even be useful for inspiring employee loyalty
and helping you keep your workers at peak morale. If
you are looking for a way to take your business to the
next level, consider what starting a blog might be able
to do for you.
Here is a guest blog post by my good friend, Mitch Mitchell. In this post he gives some good reasons why you should have a business blog. Take it away, Mitch!
Sometimes I wonder just how far the computer age has gone. I say that because quite often I’m answering the same question over and over; why should I have a business blog. I’m going to give you a few reasons why you should have a business blog and how you can have a business blog.
Normally when I see the words Fast and Cash in the same sentence I tend to roll my eyes because usually that is a misnomer. However, since Lynn has already built the know, like and trust factor with me (a topic for another blog post), I decided to take a chance with this ebook. Surprisingly enough the advice was something that was very doable. I’m not going to give away what it is except to say this advice is really something anyone can do.
