Okay so I have not posted in here in quite a while. It is because around Thanksgiving I found out that I was 23 weeks pregnant. And while I was trying to get my prenatal care all set up, my daughter decided she didn’t want to wait around for all of that and she decided to enter the world the day after Christmas. So I have been a little bit busy with a premature baby that is currently in the NICU.
So I had a little bit of help from my friends with this post. I am using my cell phone a lot more these days to surf the web. I’ve noticed that some websites do not function very well on my phone at all. I mean some sites don’t even have the buy button on the mobile version and I was really eager to buy whatever it was they were selling. Other sites have the opt-in form covering the content and there is no way to close the opt-in box on the mobile version so I usually wind up closing the whole site down without getting to the content that I wanted to see. So my website tip for you is to please test your website on mobile devices so you can see what your visitors will see if they visit your site on a mobile device. Here are some tips that my friends gave:

This post is a feeble attempt to round up all of the resources that I have seen posted on Facebook in the aftermath of the Hurricane in Texas. I don’t have much money right now, but I do have a blog and a social media following. With that being said, I do believe in using the resources that I have to do the most good that I can. So I’m putting together this post in the hopes that it can help those of you that wish to donate money or send items to the people affected by this tragedy. Now, these resources are not grouped in any particular order. I have just posted them as I saw them get posted on my Facebook page. I will post more updates on my Facebook page as I see them. So here are the resources for those of you that want to help out.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a number or a schedule you could follow? While it would be great if there was research that suggested that mailing exactly every 5 days gets you the best results every time, there is no such thing. And there’s a very good reason for it.
Every market, every niche, every audience and every person is different. While you’ll never make everyone on your list happy, there is a lot you can do to make just about any email frequency work.
You’re spending a lot of time each week crafting emails to your subscribers, but none of that will do you any good if you don’t have a decent delivery rate. If those emails land in your potential customers’ spam folders, you don’t have much of a chance of making a sale or building a relationship with them. Here are three tips that will help insure that your emails make it to your subscribers’ inboxes.

The first thing you need to get right when it comes to email marketing is the subject line. If you can’t get your subscribers to open your emails, it really doesn’t matter how good the actual email is.
It’s easy to spend a lot of time crafting a great message and then just slap a subject line on it at the end. Spend some time writing them and see what type of headline gets you good open rates. Here are five tips to get you started.
So you may remember a while back I did a review of my friend Adrienne Graham’s book, No You Can’t Pick My Brain It Costs Too Much. Well, I just wanted to give you an update on how that is going for me.
For a writer with a solid funnel in place, it’s easy to take a look at the number of subscribers at each level of the funnel and predict pretty accurately what the sales are going to be from day to day or week to week.
If you’ve got a funnel in place, though, and your numbers aren’t looking great, chances are you have a leak somewhere. Your funnel has a hole (or two or three) where subscribers are falling through. There are four common causes for funnel leaks, and once you spot them, they’re pretty easy to fix.
For writers, a sales funnel is probably the most important marketing tool you have. And yet many entrepreneurs – both new and established – have no clear understanding of what a funnel is or how it works.
As you can imagine, failing to fully understand this critical part of your business means fewer sales, lower profits, and ultimately, an unstable business.
A Simple Sales Funnel
At its most basic, a sales funnel consists of free content, which typically requires nothing of your readers. Many sales funnels begin with blog posts, YouTube videos, Facebook content, and other information readers can access at no cost. This is the “top” of your funnel.
