Social Media Marketing World Was a Game-Changer for Me! Register for SMMW2015!

I can’t wait to recommend something to you that was a total game-changer for me in early 2014.

Are You Missing the Will to Execute Your Remarkable Ideas?

The pop-up box is usually an opt-in box inviting you to download a free report or subscribe to an ezine. Do you find these annoying?? Most do.

However, you would not believe the results entrepreneurs are getting by placing a pop-up optin box on their website!

Typical Optin Conversion Results

If you add a generic optin box in your header, on your sidebar, below blog posts, in your footer… you should expect a 2.5% optin rate. Meaning, 100 people land on your site and about 2-3 will subscribe to your email list.

5 Tips to Manage Your Email Inbox to Reduce Stress and Stay Productive

Is your email Inbox making you stressed? Do you find it’s hard to get anything done because of this out of control monster? Enjoy 5 tips I use to stay on top of email:

Only subscribe to lists that provide absolute value and you really trust the advice given and that is pushing your business or life forward. (Most subscriptions are less than great and add clutter and stress.) I think I’m only subscribed to 3-4 email lists and I am a fan of a lot of websites online.

If you want to stay connected to what someone is doing, follow them on social media. Also, make a list of sites you want to go to once a week and see what’s […]
