Great New Autoresponder

Don't overlook this one!

If you've wished there were decent free autoresponders available out there, if you've gritted your teeth as autoresponder prices escalate, if you've seen fewer and fewer features on the free version of your autoresponder of choice - well, here's a heads up!


List Wire - Get Your Free Autoresponder


Most people begin internet business in a situation where they really have to watch costs. An autoresponder is a 'must have', but don't kid yourself, a decent one doesn't come free, and there's something menacing about having the sword of Damocles hanging over your head with prices set to rise as you add subscribers - who of course may or may not buy from you. This is especially true in the early stages of building a web presence, when you are an unknown.

Well, here's a great autoresponder solution:

Gary Ambrose, the List Making Expert, has set up a free autoresponder system that really is very cool. Brilliant features, NO upgrading required as you grow your list - it really is a dream come true. He has a great philosophy, plus some training inside the site.


List Wire - Get Your Free Autoresponder



And if you really want to spend a little money for even more top-quality training, he has an OTO that's impossible to beat.

Either way - you just cannot lose with this autoresponder! Check it out now.

Feed URLS

Seems to me once a blog's feed has been syndicated at Feedburner, it's hard for a visitor to find the feed URL if they need it for some purpose.

I have just been grappling with the problem of getting feed URLs for feeds I'm submitting in the Worlds of Interest (Niche Worlds) at
CAGORA, where I work.

I think it's a good idea where your blog is syndicated at Feedburner to list the feed url somewhere on the blog so people can easily find it - I got so frustrated a few hours ago I nearly walked away altogether from a couple of blogs I was trying to list. I just couldn't get them listed using the original feed addresses and I had no way of knowing if the blog was syndicated on Feedburner or not. I finally found the Feedburner URL by a fluke - and that's not good enough when visitors can click away from any site in a second if they don't find what they want. I'm thinking especially of newbies here.

The Feedburner feed url for this blog is
http://feeds2.feedburner.com/1stClassMarketing
and I shall be listing that URL in the sidebar shortly - AND doing the same for all my other blogs.

Feedburner's great, except for this one little drama......

More SEO Tools and Sites

At the end of this article I'm going to tell you how good SEO is for YOU, so listen up!

Monetizing resources has become the name of the game, but there are still a lot of FREE tools around right now that help you in evaluating keywords and choosing the best for your purpose - even tools that help you get creative in exploring new keywords for your topic. Here are a few:


SEO Chat The Best! This is a comprehensive site with a heap of tutorials and SEO tools to help any webmaster optimize his or her site for traffic. Keep this site in your toolbox (see my post on this) because you will want to refer to it often.

SEO Book has a series of paid courses and the owners can be hired for SEO work on your site. You can sign up for a free membership and get a free 7-day SEO beginners course by email also - go for it!

Scrub The Web One of the older engines, Scrubby has always been an SEO resource. They have a comprehensive area devoted to SEO, with some free tools and help, plus a series of courses for their exclusive membership. At $ 79.95 for a 6 month membership, this HAS to be one of the best value for money SEO deals on the net. Scrubby is definitely worth taking a look at because they have extra goodies like a free Metatag Builder, a free Metatag Analyzer and an Easy Submit, to name a few.

EZ SEO News is also worth a glance, though it doesn't rank up there with the above resources and it's not at all well organised, for my money.

Firefox Among all its features, Firefox has a free extension that adds many search engine optimization data points into Google's SERPs and Yahoo!'s SERPs on the fly. You can download it HERE.

Of course, there are heaps of companies out there falling over themselves to do an SEO job on your website - for a fee. For the big guys with money to burn and not much time to spend, that might be the way to go.

My feeling is though, if you're serious about your online presence, it's a much better idea to upskill and do the job yourself. Learning this stuff is going to widen your vision about the potential of the net and how to position your business to make the best of it - and that can only be GOOD for your business!

More tomorrow.

SEO and Keywords Research

Keywords research is a huge "key" (forgive the pun!) to Search Engine Optimization for any site, not to mention making a proper job of choosing a niche, if you're looking to create a niche site. You should start your keyword research ideally before you even decide on your domain name.

And, who knows, a bit of savvy research right at the start might lead you to one of those still untaken domain name gems of pure gold at rock-bottom prices that James Siminoff talks about in the article mentioned in my previous post.

Okay, so where do you go to do keyword research? Many of the keyword tools now cost - usually a pretty steep monthly fee. Let's have a look at what there is.

Wordtracker.com has an extensive range of keyword tools and tutorials. The monthly fee is $59. They have a basic free keyword research tool HERE, and you can sign up for a free newsletter.

Wordze.com is the cheapest of the paid tools with a current special offer at $38.98.
Members get access to daily, weekly, and monthly search trends, and other features. The tool is apparently very well suited to bloggers, and has an intuitive interface. Their index page has an interesting list of the Top 10 keywords from the previous day's search history.

Keyword Discovery is the tool for serious keyword research. According to its site copy, Keyword Discovery is the most advanced Keyword Research tool available. With a standard monthly subscription of $69.95 it is definitely a tool for dedicated researchers only.

Keyword Elite is designed and marketed by Brad Callen, the SEO expert (Get his free book on SEO from the link in my post SEO - Search Engine Optimisation below). Keyword Elite is a downloadable software package, priced at $176. The site copy includes some glowing reports and testimonials. It has a full money-back guarantee.

Good Keywords has just revamped its software range, designed to be downloaded and operated from your desktop. I've used the free Good Keywords before and it's handy to have. There are free as well as paid versions, so well worth looking at when first starting out in this field.

For an excellent review of the first four options above, CLICK HERE.
