Interview with Chris-Badgett-LifterLMS
"Like, I gotta figure out this online business thing. I I want to be location independent. I need to I want to make money through the internet. I have this thing for the tech. I get it. I started to realize I can be a good marketer and sales professional I was like, but I need to learn inside of another tech company. So I became a project manager inside of an agency and started dealing with these the expert industry as we know it today and that was who did online courses and like in in yoga or business training and things like that and and as long, Doing that I start my own freelancing business on the side where like all right. I'm going to get my own clients. And then and then when I started over selling what I could deliver I needed to start hiring developers real designers and what when you do in project management, what type of work were you doing? Website so training base membership sites. And sometimes it was built what you actually getting them built. Yeah. See, this is a beauty of Wordpress is somebody like me can come down and be all right. I'll get a membership plug in an e-commerce plug-in. I can start putting this up together. And once I got myself in trouble then I'd call go to Odessa Car up work or wherever and find out a developer to help me get unstuck or actually deliver what the client wanted and that was like the early days of me figuring out like my place in WordPress and not Designer. I'm not adding on the business guy. It took me a while to figure that out. It and so once you understand how to get a customer and you know, what the customer wants it's fairly easy to either do it yourself using the plugins that be familiar with or find somebody else who can make it happen in my right totally.
Fresh update on "wordpress" discussed on Security Now
"They've got known vulnerabilities, increasing numbers of them over time and none of them will ever be updated that that just can't be the way things happen moving forward. So my feeling is wordpress should commandeer the best ideas from their add on authors and implement them safely and security there ought to be a built in. Ip based White. List and blacklist there ought to be built in multi factor authentication and captures. You shouldn't have to download an add on to have those basic security. Features you know I get it that. They don't want to hurt their own developer ecosystem, but they're going to remember their reputation is going to get more tarnished if they don't fix these problems. And how can they? Because we've just got you know amateur well-intended. Web. Script. PHP and Java. Script. Doing the best they can but that's not good enough as this as we continually see because we're seeing lots of wordpress problems and wordpress should firmly disabuse. It's platforms, administrators of the idea that they can prevent the automatic updating of anything when wordpress feels that it is sufficiently important for things that are vulnerable on their wordpress installation. To be updated the guy who complained that three of his vulnerable sites were updated without his permission to remove a critical complete site takeover should put his head out of will you know where and wordpress on also make their ability to do this part of their formal policy. They ought to have like maybe change that the auto update switch to update you know auto update critical security vulnerabilities or auto update all update you know accept all updates or Only, critical security vulnerabilities rather than giving anyone the illusion that it could be completely turned off clearly for seven years, it cannot be completely turned off updates are going to be done. I put this last piece under miscellany because it's directed directly related to security than it is to MASOCHISM. The news is. That the refusal of a system to perform a windows, ten feature update may now be bypassed. Thus. Yes..
Can You Build a Business Alone?
"Can you build a business alone totally by yourself? Well, the simple answer is yes but what kind of business you could literally open eliminate stand in your front yard and that's considered technically a business providing a product for a fee you make lemonade youth set up the table you sell it. The fee done deal but we obviously are not talking about lemonade stand. We're talking about a business that could actually stain your lifestyle and make it a comfortable one. You know if you're going to go into business and start something and really work hard on you WanNa make sure it's worth your while. So has the potential to make you financially free. Is this possible. Yes, it is. But there are caveats and we'll talk about they are in a moment. This can be done. I've seen it done and I've done it myself where I literally ran the whole business by myself. No external help not even a freelancer no external services nothing. Just software and my time it was a services business. I was creating business websites on wordpress for Mike cline since is over a decade ago and I did everything myself the marketing the sales, the service, the actual craft of building the website, the maintenance the the customer calls the invoicing, the financing everything, and I've seen a lot of entrepreneurs start out this way, and this is what's called being self employed. This is not being an entrepreneur, an entrepreneur somebody who leverages resources and time in order to produce results for their customers and to be free. Of the business meaning that they can step away from it for a month or two, not do a single lick of work and the business continues to go because they have teammates they have pleased they have people working on things. The system goes they build the system they make the hires the put in the assets they put in all the things they need to do so that it runs by itself that's what an entrepreneur really is. A self employed person is somebody who actually works for themselves. Very similar to what I was doing when I was doing my business consulting firm and I was building websites. This is very similar to somebody who's a doctor and running their own clinic, a chef that runs her own restaurant there the business owner and the talent, and the really the product. They're really the the thing they're selling the service, but it is technically a business but one of the things I've learned really early on about twenty years ago is a big difference was self. Employed person and an entrepreneur I learned this from Robert Kiss Sakis Rich Dad poor dad his book and he has this four quadrant system that talks about like you please you have self employed you have entrepreneurs and you have investors and really these are the four ways people make money in this world and the top two quadrants are the employed and self employed in the bottom two quadrants are entrepreneur and investor, and you really WanNa be on the bottom quadrants because those two quadrants. Leverage Time Leveraged Talent. They're not exchanging their time for money. So I worked in my business building I saw the people. But when I was not doing that I wasn't earning money, there's no way I could step away from it because my clients wouldn't get what they paid for. So let's just flat out say, yes, this is possible but you're going to have to do as a self employed person because that's how it works. You have to hire somebody else you have to empower somebody else to do that work for you. In order for you to be free of that attachment to the business or attachment to delivering that service or delivering that product. Now having said that that's still a business being self employed is still a business and might enjoy that you might like that kind of business people that love control and love their craft will love this type of business. Now, I am of the opinion even if you love your craft photographer, you can benefit with some key hires a manager somebody who deals your finances someone had to go she your rates. Somebody to build your website all that kind of stuff is worth having people hired either as a freelancer or as an employee or part time to help you just focus on your craft as a photographer and not deal with the other logistical things because that's your magic sauce, right? That's that's your. Special talent and you should focus on that as a service provider. But even if you didn't, you can still run that business. Now having said that again, there's limitations. There's only so far. You can take that business when I was building. For my clients, I was pretty inexpensive the beginning, but then I raised my prices raise prices. But even if I raised my prices to an astronomical amount, let's say for example, I was charging forty or fifty thousand dollars a website I would need at least six weeks to create that website and deliver it to the client and receive my fifty grand. So even if I was charging fifty grand a website, I can really only bring on about eight clients a year given you know. Holiday season things like that, and that's not bad. But at the end of the day, I cannot make more than four hundred, thousand dollars a year in revenue, which is a great number. You know that's not a bad number as a pretty healthy business in revenue but that's basically my ceiling. I, don't have any more hours in the day I. Don't have any more weeks in the year and if I don't WanNa leverage my time and I don't want to hire somebody that's my ceiling.

"Does yes, it offers other things of rather obscure. My feeling is those things. Most of those seem like features that should be built in natively. So that users are not forced to download and obtain them through what proved to be insecure add on's I'm one hundred percent certain that the authors of these plug ins are well meaning. But all of the evidence we've seen informs us that writing web facing browser add ons is not simple. It requires extreme awareness of security and it should not be left to random even well intentioned authors. So I get it that wordpress wants to have an active and vital add on ecosystem to enhance their platforms offering but leaving popular features missing such as at least some of those provided by logging eiser hugely increases the footprint of exactly this sort of devastating event. Many of those more than one million potential attack targets could have been completely sidestepped from the start if wordpress natively offered the more obvious popular and missing benefits of. Add on so you know it ought to be in the box. While I was hosting my own wordpress site I also employed my own Ip based filter for exactly that inherently vulnerable and a abuse prone log in page. When I was setting up wordpress, I was somewhat stunned did that he was just like this log in page and you're depending upon a username and password to get access into the internals of your sight, but there was no other protection for it. So of course. Because I'm running on top of I s I added some rules to a web dot configure file, which is the equivalent of the H. T.. Dot H. T. access file typically supported by UNIX. Servers. Easily done if you're the Admin of the server, not if you don't have access down at that level but yes, my point is that ought be built in to wordpress. You should not no-one should need to depend upon. Lower level plumbing like I was able to do or the need to go get a a an add on no matter how popular it is, which then exposes more than a million sites to a sequel injection attack. And what's even more weird is that it turns out this Internet wide forced update was not without controversy wordpress users have unfortunately been given the impression well, because there's a setting that they control what's done when on their sites, there's permission setting for allowing auto updates. So of course, I immediately turned that on when I was setting up my wordpress installation more than a year ago but many old school wordpress admins enjoy the illusion that they. If that, if they have more control, things will go better for them. They are, of course, wrong Ryan dewhurst is the founder and CEO of W. P.. SCAN. We've mentioned him in the past I..
Sneak Peak at OxygenBuilder & CreateWithPlay
"To start today off. I wanted to quickly cover a new thing that I found called oxygen or oxygen builder.com. It works with WordPress similar to Elementor, but they've made beautiful websites and I've actually talked to people now that favor this over webflow pricing wise. It is really affordable. They only offer a lifetime plans. And so the New Jersey Plan is $100 without a woocommerce integration the woocommerce integration. And like everything in the normal plan costs $150 and then if you're an agency and you know, you just want to be putting it out on every website that you build for clients. It's a hundred and seventy. So I mean, it's it's p affordable. I would personally still use webflow. I just enjoy their CMS and everything and how they have things laid out. But if you do use WordPress make sure to check them out at oxygen builder.com moving on to the next something. I am very excited about it's a new platform called play I believe they're they're based in New York City and the link is create with play, I have personally not gotten to use it yet. But I do have a friend that did and he sent me a screenshot of a mobile clone of Instagram he made quickly which really sucks my interest and when I say like clone of Instagram, I'm talking like clone of Instagram like the stories everything it looked beautiful. So the craziest part is though you actually design on birth. Phone so he built that Instagram clone directly like using his phone and it has probably the most aesthetic design capability that I have seen in on top of that. It's being off using a phone which is just not so you can sign up for their beta on their website create with plate, and they are also looking to hire a contract Q&A Analyst job in iOS Developer. So if you are either of those or you have a friend that is trying to get into the new code space make sure to check out those positions and work for a new and exciting company. So I keep you updated in terms of like the back end so I know that obviously it looks beautiful and like the Instagram clones great, but if it doesn't actually do anything you're kind of limited, so hopefully I can get that for you soon whenever I was signing up for the beta. It asks you what other tools you use and the other tools that they Offered that you could select were like figma Adobe things like that. So it seems like more of a design Focus too if anything but you know, maybe them rolling out some more functionality later down the road onto the next I launch the no code. No problem Discord Channel and this is where the no code Community brings awareness to the note, space and helps guide those on there. No code journey. I personally have not really shared it much. It's been up for like two weeks. I think we have like sixty people in it so far organically and yeah, so I ejected to share that with you guys as well. If you are interested in joining the Discord check out my website and on the top there's an a community tab now so lastly I am the one who I'm sure you've all heard of is looking for top webflow Developers for a new program. They're running with their webflow integration. So if you are a webflow designer and looking for an incredible opportunity, I highly recommend reaching out to at your V one on Twitter to hear more about what that program offers. I know it's their growth plan and basically it offers some sort of webflow integration and maybe a month to convert your website into a mobile app. I'm not entirely sure but yeah, definitely reach out to their Twitter account and find out

Of course runs. GRC Dot com just fine because my sight is. Also. Petrified. Anyway. wordpress once again and not in a good way in the news in this week's installment of why you never want to host your own wordpress site. At also why you should really try to only run with the barest minimum of plugin add on's. We. Now have the log eiser add on. which is installed in more than one million wordpress sites. which the wordpress security team took the rare step last week of forcing an update to. Using a nearly unknown internal capability of wordpress. It turns out that wordpress sites can be forcibly updated without their administrators permission. And as a result sites running the logon Eiser plug-in were forcibly updated to version one point six point four. Earlier versions of logging eiser contained a sequel injection bug. That could have allowed hackers to completely take over any of those more than one million wordpress sites. So. Why would more than one million wordpress instances choose to install logging Eiser? Because traumatised. Yes. Exactly. Because it promised to enhance the security of wordpress sites by yeah by providing IP address black or white lists for accessing word presses logging page. Among, other logging related features as you know log nicer sounds like no, it's close to agonizers as it turns out but. In this case.

Interview with Chris Ford
"Welcome to hallway Jets. I'm Liam Dempsey. I'm Cara Clay's today. We're joined by Chris Ford Chris spent the first twenty years of her career working as an agency and freelance designer five years ago. She took a hard left and to project management team is a hybrid project manager and designer at reactive a WordPress VIP partner. Hi Chris. I'm so glad to hear welcome. Thanks for having me. I'm really glad to be here. Mm. I have missed interactions with the WordPress Community. I think tank fair to say that we all have Chris Chris. What a pleasure to meet you. Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself off? My name's Chris Borg. I started working on the web in Nineteen Ninety Six when I graduated from design school. I was supposed to be a T-shirt designer at a skateboard company and then their web guy quit and suddenly I was the new one person on staff fortunately. There were like five tags so there wasn't a whole lot to learn at the moment. We were very excited when animated gifs and background images came out for a little bit of context. I did that with the agencies in every industry from like skateboarding described booking at agencies and as a freelance writer and then five years ago, like I said, I took a really hard left into project management because I was interested in more kind of the business end of things. Like, how do you run a profitable project? How he managed timelines, how do you manage budgets which is something I always struggled with as a freelancer. And now I have just recently within the last couple of months started dipping my toe back into the design Pond relearning everything because it's been five years, which means nothing is the same Everything Has Changed. I started in WordPress. I don't even know how long it go but it was before Studio press was Studio project. I had been working as a professional scrapbooker which he says an actual job and the industry. It's the craft industry is like the tech industry. There are bubbles in different crafts and then those bubbles burst. And so when the scrapbooking Bubble Burst, I knew a bunch of people with photography. Skills he needed websites. So I got me a copy of the Kubrick theme and added flash headers with navigation to him and stole my WordPress Journey. Wow. I am so many things I want to ask you about I do too. I totally do. Can we start on scrapbooking, please, please please. Yes, I did a little scrap booking not professionally and now, you know with digital photos, whoever I mean what may have do people still do it? I mean I assume people still do but it seems like a a something that Is not a thing anymore because nobody prints out there photos. I actually I got into it because I started as a print designer and I'd love to paper and I am working it is miserable job where every day I wouldn't go in and recreate Rain Bird sprinkler timers and Flash like my whole job was to show you how like the dial spins phone numbers flashed and then you push this button and it was miserable and horrible and there was a scrap booking store down the street. So I would go and buy papers and things change and usually I just hoard crafting supplies cuz they're pretty but I actually used fees and digital scrapbooking was just taking off and that's kind of how I got notified because I do a lot of like retouching and like Photoshop was my thing. And so I got to know enough people who knew that about me that Wednesday, Digital scrapbooking started getting more popular. I got more people calling me saying hey leading someone to write an article. I was the art director for digital scrapbooking magazine and wait a second cuz I think scrapbooking and I think paper. So what is digital scrapbooking? It was basically you would go in and it off when skeuomorphic design was really big so I could like make things look realistic. So you would go in and you know make something that looked like a rib shack and put it on a page or design your own pattern backgrounds that look like paper I would do a lot where I would design my own stuff and then print it out on a printer and make kind of hybrid page. Just whip it so the Andrews to still pay and yeah. Oh, that's a really yeah. Well, no wonder you did it professionally that sounds amazing for a print em out and log. Yeah, it was super fun. Like I had a Michaels in my closet people would just send me stuff because you would get published in magazines. Like it was a really really good fun mystery years until the money ran out where I basically just kind of got paid to paint things and I don't know if anyone knows who clotting home but she's this really amazing collage artist who does like acrylic image transfers and packing tape transfers and it was you basically got page to make crafts which was kind of the coolest thing in the world, but I had a you know, I had bills to pay so I couldn't like walk it was a really competitive thing. Right and a lot of the people who were involved in it. It was their second job their husband was working. They weren't really in it for the money and I'm like dude. This is my full-time job. Like I need to get paid and I need to get paid on
6 strategies for a Landing Page That Sells Out Your Product with Reese Spykerman
"Reese say what's up to a fire nation and Shearson interesting about yourself that most people don't know. Hello fire nation. Thank you so much for having the on Jail D. and you know here's my interesting tidbit. Burger? King is one of my secret weapons that makes me a marketing triple threat, my degrees in journalism. I spent more than a decade doing website design today Mary's Zayn copywriting business strategy students and hundreds of business and people including a couple of your past guest Burnett Jiahua and Chris Gil Ball. So okay. What's the deal with the Burger? King? It's my second office away from home. It actually makes me better at what I do because I get to observe how everyday people behave the more. We can objectively observe and understand people. The more we can build our emotional intelligence, not just as marketers, but as human beings to I thought personally you. WanNa talk about how they're flame broiled. Marketing campaign was such a good differentiator between McDonald's and Wendy's and all the other things and I thought that was part of inspiration. But I'm glad you went that way. It's so important fire nation to be amongst the people to go out into the world to see to hear to observe and very importantly to listen listen and as I told you. Earlier fire nation during the INTRO WE'RE GONNA be talking all about the strategies free landing page that will sell out your products. So this is where you're an expert. This is where you are an acknowledged leader I want to dive right into this topic. So first off just break it UAE is a landing page such valuable tool for any product based business a landing page when it's done well, it has the potential to move and even sell out your products more so than your main website can do for. You and this works whether you're in the physical ECOMMERCE product space or you're selling digital products and listen up all you service based business owners who are listening today you too can leverage some of the strategies were going to be talking about. But back to a product based business, you can use a landing page for everything from highlighting, morning your bestsellers and pushing that product even harder for more sales to trying to move a product that you're struggling to get sales for the conversion rate of a well-designed. Landing. Page tends to be higher than that of a home page or a main website like here's an example. One of my clients had a conversion rate on her main website of around like to four percent we added a landing page. It has an average conversion rate of about fourteen percent but listen this is cool. That's actually fairly conservative I've seen studies and examples where Nalayini pages are converting at twenty percent thirty percent or higher depending on your product, your market, and of course, how well you do it. When you tie it to a an advertising campaign, you can send this really focused targeted traffic to page. They're gonNA come into that paid hot. They're going to have a specific expectations versus a customer who comes to your main website and they're like Hey I'm just trying to do some research about your business. So here's the thing for any of your audience listening who've been investing paid traffic they're. Just, sending people the main website they're going to likely see a much bigger bang for their advertising buck. If they drive that pay traffic to a landing page that uses some of the strategies that we're going to break down today fire nation I mean, we're talking about a five to seven x higher conversion, and that's on the conservative side and I can completely buy into this because listen websites can. Be Busy. They can be confusing they can be daunting like there's so much stuff on there. There's like about me pages, there's pictures, there's quotes, there's pop ups, all these things people are like Oh my God like what is going on here whereas the landing page can have one clear objective and whatever that objective is to sell to convert whatever that might be a simple. It's clear and it's the. Only thing. A lot of times that the individual can do on that page. So you're either going to leave and do nothing or they're gonNA actually do something on that page, which is what you want them to do to convert. So what does make a landing page different from just a regular old fashioned wordpress website? Well, you kind of broke it down pretty well, it's what I do, what do reese. Syria rate what you sat and expand on it a bit look your main website. It's general it's broad. It's you know it's usually building brand and product awareness, and if you are in a product based business like ECOMMERCE, it may function as your main hub for people who buy from you'll repeatedly but compared to your mainland impeach it has so much noise and clutter as jailed just told. US You have all these differing goals and actions. You're asking a visitor to make on your regular website, and so what happens is people come into your website and there is going all over the place. If we think about their mindset and the bar browsing path, they might take. It's going to look like a lazy Sunday meander going off on various paths they might see a creek on. The right, and they're like, Oh, I, WanNa go check out that stream. So you can optimize your website. There's various ways you can do this and boost your conversion rate, but I really love when I'm working with a new business to focus on building a landing page because what happens is they can often get quick revenue wins they can use that revenue and apply it to their main. Website and then do bigger tweaks over there. It can take longer to overhaul your main website, but a well written well, designed landing page is like giving your visitors are really linear path and a map that you're guiding them along from point a to point. B. As you kind of said. So let's look at an example. You know if we're thinking about a product, let's say you sell handbags. And you had a category listing page with hundreds of different hand handbags for your customer sort through. She's got a sort through them make decisions about them. Every decision she's gotTa make even subconsciously fatigues her, and when she finally gets to a page for the handbag that catches her eye, she has even more decisions to make like what color should I choose what size should I choose but If, you were to take the same thing and apply landing page to it. One strategy might you might do is say, all right I'm GONNA take a brown laptop bag I'm going to eliminate all these other choices. This is one of my bestsellers I'm GonNa make a landing page just for it. You drive traffic to it and suddenly this. She doesn't have to scroll through all these other choices on your main website. She gets right to this brown laptop page and. It's very focused, and so a main website look you're going to have all these decisions, these noise, these goals, your customer has to sort through her brain and inner browsing process but an effective landing page it removes all that for her all these decisions they're gone. All she has to do is decide do I want this brown laptop bag

Severless: Improving How We Serve up Websites and Applications With Jerome Hardaway
Help! My website images keep disappearing
"This is frank. From Philadelphia I'm glad a friend suggested that I listened to your show last year. I recently started a blog about caring for elderly pets. I'm enjoying the process of writing posts and I can see the stats, but some people are already finding the site from Google searches. The next step is to develop a consulting offer or some kind of information product, but I have a weird problem. The images on some of my posts have disappeared. They look fine when I first published them. But now there's just a big empty box where the image should be i. have no idea what I did. How can I fix it? Thanks for Your Health Frank. What's up? Thank you so much for listening. Glad to know that the blog is starting well. With this one exception of this pesky problem. All right. So yes I think we might actually have a solution for you here despite the fact that I don't normally tech support you know as mentioned but probably what has happened you because I've had this problem myself and a lot of bloggers and anybody who's building a website for the first time I experienced this. Probably what has happened here is one of two things something has changed with where you are storing those images like where the images are actually hosted. Or with the link itself. So the link to those images that you put into wordpress or squarespace or. Whatever interface you're using There's always a place where you put your tax, and then if you want to put an image, you can upload it there, and then there's some code that says, here's the link on this page going look at this image, right? So. What you WANNA do is looking at interface whether it's wordpress or something else. See where the link is going to the image and then copy and paste it in another tab and your browser to see if the images are there. So from there. If you still don't see it at that link, it means something is wrong with that location where the image is supposed to be. Okay. So it's no longer there for whatever reason it's what you WanNa do is try re uploading the images and see if they work now. So whether it's wordpress or something else in whatever interface you use, there's usually a media library or similar where you can add images. So I would say first of all is Adam again and see if it works now. Now. What if it's the other way around what if you click that link or copy and paste that link and you do see the image but you just don't see it on your website it's that big empty box it means something wrong with link itself. Okay. So you might have the wrong formatting in the code that tells your website to show people those nice images. In fact, a common problem in wordpress still do this sometimes is I forget the ATP Colin Forward Slash. Ford slash the little syntax needs to go in front of the links. That's one of those things where if you just kind of browsing the web, you don't think about it a whole lot but once you start making a webpage need to make sure to include that. So it could be something else in which case you need somebody else's help. But I feel pretty confident that it's one of those two things.

So number one I as those of you that are watching the video, right you could tell him blue right now right I look like star wars character and I can make myself smaller bigger and things like that. But the first tool is called I think it's a terrible name Um. It's M H M m DOT APP if you want to get access to it, I believe it's invite only right now and you can requested an invite but this is from the creator of evernote. and. Thinking about it this way right now, we're all hanging out on video calls all day, and you need a way to stand out. It's really good presentation APP at first like why don't even need this and I started using it more like there's a lot of cool things that can make myself smaller to put myself if I want to emphasize something on slide I, put my face right next to it. I can make myself fade away and so you know I. Think it's great like fading away right now but you can go check it out. IT IS A. Open to apply I think it's free to use at the moment and so it's an open Beta or private. Beta and for anybody that does a ton of calls on Google or zoom try to. Number two checkout flow, and they have a content decay to a within their. What's interesting about this is you're gonNA write content most your old constable start losing traffic over time. If you use the continent decay tool, it'll tell you which one of those are losing traffic's. He can go in some update them, and then that way you start getting more and more traffic is to update content that's losing traffic first versus focusing on updating content s naturally doing well in keeps going up.

Slash tool allows you to go after multiple regions at once. All right number five, this is not exactly a content tool I mean, it's more of a workflow automation tool of Zappia, but think of it this way when you're creating new content. You can have say we do this podcast. Well, when podcast comes out because our our podcast s feed, we can automatically push to Google spreadsheet. So we have all of our podcast just showing up in their we could also push it into. We can push to wordpress along push an email out if you want, we can set up all these automations and if we think about content as game I, mean there's a lot of moving parts that's the game that you're playing and so it's hard to manage all of it. So it's better to automate a lot of the the mundane tasks that you're working on. Number six restrain if you are going to create

To understand what the needs are of of those who live in the communities. that. We that we go to and that's really what's always been exciting for me as a planner I did some community organizing work as well and? Not only that. I worked at a nonprofit in DC as an intern, and I had a chance to look at a Housing Trust Fund I had the chance to look at how they went about organizing around housing issues and an even organizing around immigration issues and and it's it's so exciting to work in a field that that hutchison all those different areas and it's died it's that fluid ness of of of the field working an infrastructure or working with community issues or working on. Economic Development. That led me to. Writing about. you know what I learned in school and then writing about it is really you know what really got me more involved within the word s community I that jess log but I'm that I wrote in college, and then when I graduated I started writing a blog on development. For Me Boyd and just in the process of all the positive experiences move me from just you know blogging on wordpress dot com to building my own sites.

From just you know blogging sharing my thoughts about. An area that I'm so passionate about that I'm so fortunate to work in.

Absolutely. If they're tackling it on their own, we'll one really good piece of advice that took me a while to learn is that. Don't go for the very flashy wordpress themes wordpress. It comes with a set of free themes, but you know depending on what you want your site to do. They sell themes for pretty much everything I mean you could get a theme for a directory or e e commerce sites are. Two sided marketplaces. I mean pretty much anything.

Well, there's a few different options. A lot of people go with. Wicks or squarespace, but those are a monthly sort of fee and it's a little bit more expensive than using wordpress and wordpress.

"Trying out short stories always your first story when you I mean not so much the first one that you can. Write maintenance sixteen and Seventeen I was reading science fiction I. there's a there's a story called repent Harlequin said the tiktok man by Harlan Ellison and it was in one of those you know world's greatest science fiction's nineteen, sixty, six, nineteen, Sixty, seven is a collection. And I would read those things back and forth I just loved them. I remember sitting in bed. Reading that story again but TIKTOK man story and I thought I could probably do something like this and And went downstairs and got on the Family Commodore Amiga. which had at that point had been just used for defender of the crown and there was you know a pre wordpress or not were pressed but a pre word program that we had on there and I sat down and wrote a story and it was a science fiction story it was absolutely horrible. It was something about trying to be. Satirical without even knowing satire was at that point is trying to be funny without really having a sense of irony or I had it but I didn't know how to portray it online on on the page. Yeah. and I. Remember. It took it took me a couple of hours and finished it. brought. To my girlfriend at the time I said, hey read this she looked at it. She read it kind of is like, what are you like you should keep trying? All right. At least you didn't say stop. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah. It was very nice her was there someone in your family because I mean getting into English and you're talking about some of the books that you read and then into writing? was there someone in your family that? Product you towards. Your joy for reading. Would you even define it as a joy for reading because absolute our devour books? Yep well, maybe not as fast as some people but yeah, I am constantly reading Yeah my mother she she got me into reading very very early I I. What I finally decoded everything figured it out. I, brought a stack of my. You know my doctor seuss books down to her while she was watching the. Cable Net. So I think and just started reading to her out loud and and from that point on there was always a there's always book around it was something that I could always retreat to I didn't know it at the time but just personality wise I'm fairly introverted doesn't mean that I don't like people just means I need to have some alone time and that's where I would get it. I could go home. I'd read a Stephen King Book Re. Short Stories I. Got Into. A. Clockwork. Orange. And all those dystopia novels and you could use that to kind of relax and recharge by between her and my brother. My brother was the one who also use like, Hey, you should read this your one flew over the CUCKOO's nest. Now here's a coke orange like I said, hey, did you get the new Stephen King? They would just feed me stuff and then you know there's All over the house and so I just had my pick I just walk around and you know. GonNa re I didn't know Stephen King wrote four books. You pick that one up and move on from there and then start developing your own tastes and and move on. I think you might mention of it. What was your first piece of writing that you handed into someone besides your girlfriend for a critique? That was junior year. and we're supposed to write a fictional story I ended up fictionalized event that. You know that we want to up at my mother's Relatives House up in Jersey and that crashed and burned really really. Well, it's. I was I was up against another kid in class meaning we we've been partners. and. He wrote this amazing piece of course and then and he wrote I of course to read his out loud and then I read mine and it was just frigates. Suddenly found in this as well But he you know go ahead go ahead. Well I. got the feedback that that at the time. I needed you know. Every writer when they go into writing for the first time especially that age you don't know what revision means you don't know really what constructive feedback means, and so that's that's what the teacher is trying to say look it's not going to be perfect. The first time this is a rough draft, and so you get the positive stuff in the negative stuff and you go back and Redo it and I I went back and wrote a different story instead because I was embarrassed and I didn't know how to you know handle that particular situation. But I I, I, put it through three or four drafts, and then my teacher was like, yeah, that's what I'm talking about it. That's that's how you do it, and so you learn from those particular situations. How is your your balance of confidence with your writing even though it needed Some revision is standing there in reading in front of your your classmates, the confidence. Could did you have a balanced with that because personally I remember my first year university might first communications class in my knees were shaking and I was scared forty people in the class I looked at my communication Susan. Shut up. Even. Though I had a paper here in front of me. How was your balance with that? Probably. Mighty pen. Yeah, exactly you know naked in front of the class. Yeah well, that's that's exactly I. I. Don't know if if my voice was shaking, my knees were knocking at that point I? Do Remember one of the things I was trying to make sound. Funny. Did Not come off as funny. and there is just silence and it was that the that feeling in the pit of your stomach in front of your, you know this is an advanced English class eleventh grade and. I was like Oh man I blew it. You know from that point on he's going to. And finishes. Waiting for you to be over. And there's been plenty of those moments too. Yeah exactly especially following the other guy who? It was he was I. think he ended up being the Valedictorian and just he just knew what he was doing at an early age You know. There wasn't any ever like any jealousy of my my half. I was just always like man he's so much better. But that takes humility right like just to say no. That guy's talented. Suppose just recognizing it. Yeah. Recognizing I mean acknowledged that wow, that guy's talented I have some ways to go. Yeah and Also. Just being a nice person but also I think. It wasn't a secret how good he was everybody knew that because he was he was killing across all of the subjects and it was just one of those things I have no idea where this guy came from it he's amazing. and I think he had transferred over freshman year so we didn't know. Nobody knew who why non horses exactly. Wow. You're awesome in everybody's Askar you. Just for you just to realize, okay, you gotta work on it a little bit more and then you'll succeed. Yeah that's why people like that exist. It's it's. A It's what gives you drive sometimes I. I gotta hit that level. So after university, what was your? What was your mission? I was a drummer and punk rock bands and we were touring up and down the east coast playing basements in bars and small clubs, and we recorded a whole bunch of albums and that was what we were trying to do. I did that for about three and a half four years? Yeah. Yeah Absolutely yeah. It in me see in. One of the band's had a few in there even though I did not play guitar if I got a base and I kind of plunked around and figure out what the notes were and showed it to the guys who knew better than me and we fashion. A song out of that, I could I could yell scream. Or sorry y'all sing. With some sort of melody in there, some sort of harmony. Another band was I started getting more confident. Now is a fifty percent songwriter with that group. and then you know, 'cause you hop around from band abandoning. You know they last a year or two so that there was another band you know those those I who were punk rock ish or just rock bands then got into like an old country band where I was a one third singing partner in writing partner. After that, I got kind of got tired of of writing and I just WANNA play drums. I played A. Backup not. WanNa sing right now I, just want to play drums. I'm already doing five things at once and adding in their six so. Let. Me just play drums but yeah, it was it was a Lotta Fun. How much will even bringing up the confidence level? How much was that good for you to be on stage? I mean. Did that add
How to Create Legendary Content When Youre Short on Time
"I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about how to create legendary content when you're short on time. So this is something I've been thinking about for a while if you're busy, let's say you're a busy founder you're just starting up right now everyone's talking about Oh, my God you know. We're talking got to create content. You have people like Gary Con content's but how do you have time for contents redoing all these different things? Right you have other operational things to worry about. So I can kind of go over my process first and then this is what I've been thinking about recently, and then we can kind of go back and forth so. For me recently, I just kind of had this epiphany man. There's some leverage that's built maybe I should take advantage of that leverage and then right more. So you see a lot of people for me I look at the people that follow on twitter. It's a lot of entrepreneurs. It's a lot of investors as well, and their twitter game is just really strong and I'm like men I haven't blog for awhile talk into neo about this. I've been blog for a while but when I wrote my first blog post in about three or four years last week I felt really energized by I. Miss that feeling but I don't always have time to do that. But what I can do capture my thoughts in a tweet so if you're short on time. Start with a tweet I, 'cause years writing these tweets and if you WANNA come back to later to write legendary content, the tweet is the foundational piece that is your little sprout content, and then you can decide where you want to take that piece. Later because I have a couple tweets that I saved up after this recording, the reason I have my hair done. The reason why I'm actually dressed up time is I feel so motivated because of those tweets and let go make some legendary content go on Youtube. So Neil, what are your thoughts? So I liked that I have a simple process to create good content and a short period of time and I've been using it for years. So, there's really two steps in the first is finding the idea i. just go to all my competitors websites and most of them have solar sharing buttons on there and comment counts and some have up votes in down votes and I looked to see what's hot in my space because that'll give me ideas. All right. Once you have idea you don't WanNa Copier Competition. But if you know topic like on Seo or link building as you can create your own version of it, that's better more thorough. That's on a different viewpoint than there right again, you don't WanNa copy them. You WanNa do something that's better and then I just get into writing and the way I write is very simple. Headline I tried to vote curiosity or use a how to or lists based title than outlined I. Write the introductory paragraph with a Hook, right state some questions in their Hook Gum, and then for example, if I'm writing an article on Yoga be like. What would it be cool to do yoga like a advance Yogi? You know of course, it would. Who really has a patient's practice yoga for ten years? Why can't I learned the moves and get them done right now? Well, you know what I figured out a way one hundred and one ways to advance yoga as a Newbie and keep in mind I don't do yoga. So I have no clue what a Yogi any of that is Linda yogis postal teaches yoga. So my context is probably off but that. Should give you idea of how I hope people than I outlined my body. I list the main subheadings of all the sections that I want to cover, and then I'll put a sentence or two underneath each one. Then all right to conclusion and the conclusions that summarizes everything and then I end the conclusion with question that encourages more comments and then I go back in I fill up the middle I'll reread it. But that stuff on where pressure put my content up on wordpress are uploaded to your cms have editor some review it make sure you had your pictures from your stock targeted decided schedule it and boom. You're good to go like that. Literally is my process sometimes on writing and unsure some things all Google for the answer and then all linked to it within my article I'm deciding my sources but that really is my process. Cool. That's great process. I think by the way just because you know we're talking about tech space content on this podcast it doesn't necessarily mean you have to do text based right when we talk about legendary content, it could be at it could be a facebook ad it could be a youtube video it could be a podcast, right but neil touch on something it is. If you guys have in Glengarry Glen Ross, you have to watch that. Ad Section where he talks a idea just go find that one but this silly? Tent Patel So. A idea right. A is awareness interest D is decision as action right? The Hook that Neil is talking about you want to get them immediately. Right you want to dress Oh, while that's awareness right there right and then you want to get them interested right. Then in some cases when you're any educational content, you might not try to get them to make a decision maybe you wanted to opt into a your e book or get onto your mailing lists and then they can you know given decision there maybe to take an action, right but. Point here is human beings are still the same. You gotTa Hook, them, somehow, keep them interested because people's attention is so all over the place right and then the framework that Neil gave you or the one. I gave you a little earlier on how to start creating legendary content. Everyone has different processes but I think the foundational piece again is thinking about, okay. How do I get their attention first and how do I bring them all the way taking
Why Your Business Needs an Enemy
"Successful companies have defined enemies and you need an enemy in your business to go after Apple's enemy is the PC Tesla's enemy. Our fossil fuels are any cars are running on fossil fuels. Expedience enemy is your local travelagent overcharging you for your next trip. This is clearly defined in their marketing in their sales in their messaging, and there's a reason why they do it. They do it because it's important for you to define who you're not who you are. Trying to be the opposite of and this has a lot to do with human psychology as consumers. We know what we don't want. We don't necessarily know what we want, but we know what we don't want. So automatically, if you say, we are not this all the things that people get annoyed by you say, yeah, I don't like this and you automatically resonate with their brand who's defining that problem defining enemy some of the most successful marketing has been. Painting a business or brand against an enemy Sega did this in the nineties with Sega genesis pitting itself against Nintendo, and then later Sony playstation do the same thing with crash bandicoot against Nintendo clearly saying we're going after these people some beginners beginner entrepreneurs will say, well, that's kind of risky. What if that doesn't? Now there's no risk in that landing it's either going to resonate strongly people people are going to be like I don't know if I like that but it won't be vanilla it can't be ignored. The worst thing in business is being ignored and that's why it's very important for you define your stance we are not this we are here because we don't like how these people are doing things. The reason why this also works so well is because it gets in front of the idea that consumers are shopping around there comparing you against the competition and by getting in front of your saying, Hey, this is why were better we are not like this we're like this. This is also common in software web flow, which is a website building application for designers. Mainly, they have dedicated pages on how they compare against their competitors whether it's wordpress or squarespace they go head to head they don't shy away from it. They say these are our competitors. This is why we're better. This is why we created web flow. A lot of new businesses don't want to do this because they're afraid they think maybe Goliath is going to be down on David in the big company is going to get angry and retaliate or something like that. No, they're a big company. This is. Fair game they know it and they're dealing with our other competition as well. They understand the people that are the top of the mountain are going to be challenged and as the underdog people love an underdog story the love seeing and undertake on the big company and say we don't like the way they're doing their bloated there you know slow they're this they're that and we're here to give you something new if you WanNa. See a very good example of this. It's hey dot com I mentioned in an earlier episode this week behave dot com is a new email software it's basically a. To g? Mail. Is created by the guys behind base camp, and they clearly say that g mail is their enemy or traditional email is their enemy, and this is why they're better and they go after the competition to go after their enemy the our enemy does this this this? They don't respect your privacy they make email a chore. You waste so much time in your inbox again, your customers. Can really resonate with pain. They can really resonate with things. They hate, we all know we hate. So automatically when you are the person that's defining this, they feel like this person has a solution that's defining the enemy really does it really clearly states we're not this. We don't do this to you or all about this that contrast is really powerful marketing that contrast is really good for your brand. In also drives everything your business. So you know exactly who you are a lot of us we get lost when we do our marketing or email marketing or paid ads or even our copy on our website, and we're not really sure who we are. This clearly defines when you have an enemy, you know what you're not, and therefore the opposite who you are the other reason why this is so strong and it's so powerful. Is that when people? Shop around they come to your website they'll learn okay, this is your enemy. These are the people that you are going against. They might not even know that your competitor has some flaws and by visiting our website, they start reconsidering go into the competitor they're like, oh. Wow. I. Didn't know that people say that about the competitors I didn't know that this is what I'm in for. I didn't know that there are alternatives and because you're not trying to. Be a me too product and saying, Hey, we do this too. We do this to having a clear enemy and and really expressing that in the language of your website and your marketing really shows hey, there's a better way to do things you don't have to go with the status quo.
freeCodeCamp with Quincy Larson
"To make as well so let's first just talk about products surface area. Sure so free co camp is really three different core applications. There's the curriculum and. Portfolios? That's one of the pillars. And that is all custom code part. That's when we say the platform nationally what we're talking about we also have. A free co Camp Dot Org Slash News, which is our publication and published several articles today they're often in-depth explanatory journalism about technology. Then we have the free forum, and that's the third pillar of Free Co camp now. All three of those run on separate servers, the free cocaine forum is powered by discourse, which is a really cool self hosted open source form tool created by the founder of flow. Jeff Atwood in his. And that's very well maintained, and you can get your own discourse running really easily if you want to. You can just deploy to the cloud, and it'll live on its own server in docker container, and there you go. Same thing with free. Co Camp Dot org slash news that is running on ghost, which is another self hosted open source project that just released version three of their tool, and it's like wordpress, but it doesn't have a lot of the baggage that comes with wordpress. wordpress is excellent. But it does have some vulnerabilities in it does have. A very complicated plugin system in wordpress is trying to do a lot of things whereas ghost is just trying to be. A publication tool. So we have maybe. Seven thousand articles on. Free Co powder slash news at this point and we have. Hundreds of thousands of posts on free cochem dot org slash. So those are those who now if you want, I can drill into what powers the frequent camp platform the core curriculum. Please do yeah, so we are running. React on the front end. We're running known. As the back end were running a tool called loop. which is. An API tool. It essentially turns your rap into an API where all the routes. Can, confess chase on as well they shemale. It's something that's already baked into tools like ruby on rails like with ron rails. You take any euro. You could just put dot Jason at the end of it and get a Jason Representation of that of the data in that route so. Does a lot of that stuff. We ease Mogadishu for database and we have managed cluster. On 'em lab and we're working on moving that over to Mugabe's new atlas tool. Atlas. 'EM! Lab was acquired by Manga to be recently, so they're kind of sunsetting 'em lab. I think so. We're in the process of moving everything over. To have a big sharded system because we have a lot of data. We've got millions of records, and each of those records has these of challenge completions.

Self-Hosting Your Photo Gallery with Imagely
"Hey welcome back to another episode of this week in photo. I'm your host Frederik van Johnson in this show. It's all about image sharing galleries and wordpress. And I'm joined by Scott Widen. Let me make sure I don't butcher his name Kibbe wits. He's from the company that built this cool stuff. And we're GonNa talk about that stuff and a little bit deeper because I want to dive into the world of wordpress as it applies to photographers and Scott is a is an expert in all that stuff so welcome to the show man how you doing doing well. Thanks for having me no. I think it's the first time that you and I are chatting while I'm on while I'm wearing the image. -Ly brand usually. It's me as a photographer right when you were both at the time and stuff like that. So it's a little bit of a change of pace. I've always been at image immensely but now and now now it's center now. That's great man so you are. You're the chief community officer over there. What does that mean chief community officer? Yeah so I. It's kind of on the marketing side. I get to do things like this. Interact with other photographers with podcast. With youtubers with you know just do a lot of the interaction on social media and in person like I'm the one that goes to the conferences like photo plus expo and hanging out with people going out making photos and stuff like that so I to do stuff like that. I do the blogging. I have we have a podcast about wordpress four photographer so I hope that that kind of stuff right. So I'm I'm sort of the email marketing. It's kind of that. That guy on the guy who gets to your the thing I was hanging out with you. Get to be the face of the company. That's cool. Well let's talk about that so I have the tease. I talked a little bit about wordpress and galleries and all that stuff. So one of the reasons why you and I are having this interviews and you guys who you're about to or you have already depending on where you watch. This rolled out the ability for photographers to kind of in a way replicate what some other players in the cloud. Image storage space. You're doing like smug Mug and Pixie set excetera in terms of building galleries and assigning priceless to those galleries and allowing customers to come in and purchase from either a password or unpasteurized protected area. Which what you told me before. We even started that up until just now has not been possible. Take me through that. Because I'm one of those people I use Mug Mug. I still have my Pixie set account as well and some others And I'm a wordpress user. This week in photo is run on wordpress. Obviously be nice to have the power to have that in house to me. GimMe Gimme the gist of what you guys built. Yes so as you said Thirty thirty five percent of the Internet runs on wordpress. So thirty five percent of photographers are using wordpress. And many of them are using wordpress alongside something like smug monk and it's all good and well if that's what you want but for photographers. Who Want to do everything in one platform that they control? That is a wordpress site. You now have the solution to not only sell in and sell prints and digital downloads. But the prince you have the option to automatically had this refilled by a print lap and the first pre lab we integrated with is White House custom color. Nice and more will be on the way of course but for now. That's that's the only one that's there and the cool part is that yes next Gen gallery built on is a Free Plug. It has about a million active users. It's one of the most popular press ins ever. Definitely the most popular alary plugging is the fastest gallery plug in and it's more than just your typical gallery. Plugin display your photos. It has a full gallery management system in it and that system kind of gives you this it will. It definitely gives you the separation of galleries and not. Everything's in one media library folder. It's all separated and it allows you to fine-tune everything to put in different image tags. Which will import your exit data. So you'll have any keywords. What become tex which means you can create galleries based on tags? If you want we have You know titles and descriptions and things like that and when you the this gallery that you've created and you want to attach a priceless it so you create a price list as some prince from the lab. Some print options and we by default automatically pick the most popular prince from the lab. And then you can add more. You can even do at all if you want to destroy everything once and and that's your price list. If you want to add digital download you can do that and you attach that priceless to the gallery and you once you sell you sell your Princeton. You don't think about the part of come mattress. You don't have to think about The the the the printing the the the editing that comes after that 'cause you know you don't have to worry about replacing inks all that fun stuff on that. So you know like I said before having having been in being a user of these cloud based services the in this is a completely appropriate question especially for someone who's intimate with wordpress and and image making and how stuff goes but the word press. Yeah it's it's almost the defacto standard on the web for for many many many sites out there myself my my sites included but the double edged sword of wordpress is giants got his amazing robust community. Anything that you can imagine you can build and or configured to do but in my opinion or in my experience that's also the Achilles heel of wordpress because there's always updates and plug in conflicts and you know okay you. You're not really bill. If for me it feels like you're not really building on a on a stable foundation. You're building on a foundation that can reconfigures itself every now and then you gotTa make sure everything that's on top of it is good to go. How does how do you guys mitigate that with next Gen and Gal next-gen Gallery and the other services you offer so that if I do put my mission critical business and galleries up there and I have a bride? That's coming in that. Wants to see and by prince she's going to be able to see those and give me money so. I just what you said that that there's sort of this Achilles heel I like to say that We're presses amazing because it can literally do anything but it's also a sometimes a pain the butt because it can literally do anything from so so yes there can be conflicts with different plug ins. Yes you have to worry about. Updates at image league on top of potential complex all the time we get a lot of people coming in that might have a bug here and there and we have a team that troubleshoot said and and can handle those and we have a development team that is fast and we will address any conflicts or bugs that come up that are that need immediate attention if you're having if we're having a conflict with a plugin like you which has happened in the past then that's a plugin that is popular enough. We have to address it. We know that plug in is installed in pretty much every photographers website. We have to fix it. So but if it's if it's a conflict with the plug and then might have a hundred users total well that's not a priority because unfortunately there's not many people using a small amount of people. Yeah yeah so we have to go with with what is impacting the majority
The Best Marketing Strategy Anyone Can Use - The Candid Cashflow Podcast | Internet Marketing | Marketing Strategy
"Today. I've got the best marketing strategy. That in my opinion that that I think anyone can use for pretty much anything. And I'll be using it actually throughout this episode. You stick around here for any amount of time and you're GONNA find out that. I'm pretty picky about marketing like I want methods. That are fresh. Aren't GonNa waste my time that are ethical and are gonNA give value to my clients and customers so you know I find certain tactics to just be old tired. Need to be retired and I. I talked about that. In episode twenty three the candidate cashflow podcast actually in the wheel linked to that also in the show notes. If you want to check it out it kind of went a little more in depth And I talked in that episode about what I call the unique approach which is not basically following a bunch of people and just kinda parenting and rehashing whatever they do instead of doing that. A unique approach is kind of developing your own ideas and your own products and ways that you market those products so if you wanNA check that out it'll there'll be a link in the show notes some of those old marketing methods that I'm talking about things like webinars. I think that's probably my number one number one that I hate. I'll never forget the first one that I attended the guy. He was fifteen minutes late and then when he showed up he pursued a drone on for an hour and a half about nothing. I finally gave up and went to bed because I hadn't learned a single thing at that point in every Webinar that I've ever attended was the exact same. It was a lot of hype a lot of blabbering a lot of selling with no real substance. It was pretty much You know a couple hours of some guy talking probably in front of a white board telling me something he could have told me in five minutes and then try to sell me. Whatever it was he was trying to sell me know so you made ten thousand dollars last month. That's great. I'm still not buying your one thousand dollar product. Anyone can find ten suckers per month if they do enough webinars. It's just not the type of business model that I'm personally going for any time. You see a Webinar. Then you know the main mo of that. Webinar is to sell you. Probably a big ticket item. I also I'm not a fan of people that just turn out product after product after product. I'm currently trying to build my business around content and information products and some of those things we're going to be for sale. It's just the nature of the beast but the thing is is there are these guys and they that their entire business model is to turn out products and run a big launch on a platform like warrior plus or Jv Zoo. That's their entire business model like they're they. Launch launch is their meal ticket. And I'M NOT SAYING THAT. The products are quality because some of them really are. There's a guy Stewart Turnball he puts out some really good products and Kin Boatmen He. He does a puzzle book software. His stuff's really good. So there's a few people out there. George Cat Sudas wordpress plug ins a few of the people that that choose to mark that way have really good products but the problem here is. There is an unbelievable amount of crap that you have to wait through to find the good stuff most of the products that I've gotten via one of those things you know. It's like a long chain of piggybacked products and ot woes or one time offers and you know. I've seen some of them as many as six to eight additional. You have to opt out of just to get the final product that you bought. It's ridiculous I you know up. Sales are thing. Eight upsells on one product is is ridiculous especially when the the the sales don't even relate to the product itself so I I'm just I'm done with that stuff. It's not the type of business model that I want is not the type of business model that I recommend for people that I consult with teach advise Blah so another one is you know the crappy email is now look. I started writing to my email list daily in November of this past year. And that's something that I thought that I would never in my life do is right in email every day or you know because I didn't really want to receive an email every day. You know I believe in email marketing but some guys just take it to an insane level. I write my emails every day and I tried to provide something useful and observation a tool advice on something I try to provide an you know a new idea. Whatever you know Brendan macy's one of the worst. If you hang around the war you're plus or Davies Zoo or any of that stuff for long enough. You gotTa Youtube Channel. You'RE GONNA run into that guy. He's one of the worst. I would not doubt his products. Help young people learn the ropes to an extent but is approach to get bucks is? It's just not my style or the kind of content that I enjoy consuming so list that just tout correct crap products. That's another thing like on my list. I don't I do not hardly sell anything. If I release something I either give it away for free or it's pretty cheap. Like I think the most expensive thing that I've touted to my list so far was twenty seven dollars. I just I don't do a lot of selling. I know I know people. You know the money's in list and all this stuff just not my style. I'M NOT GONNA run over to click bank and find seventeen products that are going to pay me well and start. Hakkinen to my list because it seems like the thing to do to make me some money. I'm going to find the legit way to make money the one that provides value and once I figure it out. That's what I'm going to be teaching. Everybody I'm not doing this. Just one crappy product after another. I just I can't which brings me to the rehashed methods so it's true there have been many combinations of the same methods to make money online build a website promote a product build a list. Rents repeat it's not rocket which is the reason that I'm actually in the beginning stages of developing a system that people can jump into completely free of charge and learn these basic things. So they're not buying these rehashed products. I would say ninety nine percent of the products that I bought were just rehashed methods seriously. Every affiliate marketing product is the same. You choose a niche you creator find a product to promote around that niche. You build a website around the product you create an opt in to capture email addresses you give away a free e book as an incentive for people to opt into your email list and then you write articles about your niche you create content for other blogs videos guests post you comment on blogs forums websites in your niche ad nauseam at infinity emits almost too difficult to get an email addresses anymore because the entire Internet is jaded. These methods are simply wore out. If you WANNA get rid of me to say Webinar or one time offer and I'm gone
