Get Your WordPress Site Completed in Just a Few Clicks – Don’t Spend Hours on Something that Can be Finished in the Blink of an Eye
Anyone that knows me knows that my sales copy sucks. Unfortunately for me, I just can’t lie, so I have to give to you the facts, rather than some hyped up blather. The red headline above is a poor attempt at what they teach at the hype school everyone seems to go to. I hate ones that promise you the moon, but can’t even deliver a pizza. Well, for about the price of that pizza I have a nice plugin that will deliver just what I promise – quick setup WordPress sites.
Settings, Settings, Set TINGS!
Do you spend a wee bit of time setting up your WordPress sites? Well, I have spent my fair share of time fluffing around with the whole procedure, thank you very much. I can honestly say that it is not my favorite activity in the world (it doesn’t even come close). I am not sure about the exact time on average that it takes to set up a WordPress site, but for all its goodness, WordPress still takes a heap of time to get right.
Why waste a heap of time on repetitive tasks when you could save that heap of time doing something else? Could you be doing something more useful than configuring all those nice options in WordPress just to make it useable? Think of all the time it takes to make all those pretty pages or deleting all those useless sample pages/comments/links or permalinks, or…or…or…?

How to create a professional blog without the fear of committing suicide with your money? Think making blogs are tricky? Well, get a load of these techniques and guidelines on some of the most comprehensive reviews. Following a concept of detailed steps and styles fit for your blogging desire. A helpful approach to those who are in need of the blogging experience wrapped into one article.
Choose from a variety of websites you can browse upon. Compare with other websites. Consider the popularity of that site and the number of surfers visiting it. Be advised that the more popular the host for your blog is, the more grounds and level of contract they would impose. If one catches your attention, might as well give it a shot.
Make an impression. If your blog passes your height of quality, think if the readers might enjoy it too. Remember, you posted something you intend others to read, appreciate and digest. If a pulling out a good impression is not on your agenda, Brush off the idea of posting it in the web. Youll only gather sarcasm and unwelcome opinions.
Provide vital information as if tomorrows newspaper articles depend on your ingenuity. Dont just sit there, write something! Not just anything, but something informative and up-to-date. Convince your readers that there is much more to know about you and the world beneath your feet.
Stick to one topic. Dont let your readers mistaken you with a remote control whose switching channels all the time. Make them believe that youre up to something and not just buzzing your way through.
This bunch of interactive cyber agreements between you and your host is written in their web page. This will pop out even before you could customize your own page and blog. These will provide you with the roles you are to follow and the points you have to maintain. Stick with the guidelines that will pursue a bright relationship between you and your host.
Creating a style of writing and blog making is a constitutive instrument to make your page more appealing. Include recent events with pictures, videos or music to add spirit and animation and not give them the impression that what youre doing is not just another twisted form of journalism.
Tools are available for enhancing your page. It provides breakthroughs of distinct steps enabling anyone to synthesize possibilities that would attract visitors. Breaking down the set-up into tools and adding lightness in the scale. These estimates work with the professional mixture of quality journalism.
You can also choose to accept or decline comments and violent reactions so as to maintain the dignity of your blog. But this would depend on the installation of comment blockers. This would allow you to filter every comment that would encourage or discourage other readers to pass.
Managing the scope of blogs is easier than you think. But if youre a junkie, you wouldnt even bother to look. For first timers, a sequence of instructions must be followed to adapt to the blogging mania.
First you have to find your web host. Next step, edit your page as you please. Then post your blogs. Dont forget to indicate the time and date when you posted it. The headline or title is also of great importance. This will give the readers the main idea and not just a hint. After which, you wait for someone to enter your site and take a look at your page.
So what’s a PowerSeller? PowerSellers are the people on eBay who’ve made it, recognisable by the little ‘PowerSeller’ badge next to their name. You’ve probably seen these people around – and to succeed on eBay, you want to think the way they do.
How to People Get the Right to Call Themselves PowerSellers?
eBay gets to decide who can be a PowerSeller and who can’t, and they have strict requirements. To get in at the minimum PowerSeller level, you must have a feedback rating of at least 100 (minimum 98% positive) and sell at least $1,000 worth of items every month for three months in a row. There are different levels of PowerSeller membership as you sell items of greater value: $1,000 total is bronze, $3,000 is silver, $10,000 is gold, $25,000 is platinum and $125,000 is titanium.
If PowerSellers ever fail to meet the required amount of sales, or their feedback falls below 98% positive, then they lose their PowerSeller status. In short, the only people who get to be PowerSellers on eBay are the people who have been successful for a good while, and are on track to stay that way.
The Shop and the Marketplace.
This is the most important part of understanding how PowerSellers think. They don’t see what they’re doing as being some random bazaar, or a hobby – instead, they see themselves as a business.
Put it like this. If you run a stall in a marketplace, the chances are that you have a general area of business, but you mostly just sell whatever you can get your hands on that week. If your dodgy buddy got his hands of a job lot of something at a discount, then that’s what you’ll be selling. This might be fun – and when you have a good week, you’ll have a really good week – but it’s no way to run a real business in the long-term.
PowerSellers think far more like shops. They sell the same things again and again, every week – regular stock for regular customers. They do ‘boring’ business things like keep inventories and budgets. They know what they’re going to be selling, how much they buy it for and how much they expect to sell for. Just like a real shop, there can be hard times sometimes, but their income is stable and their business can grow slowly.
The best advice I can give you on thinking like a PowerSeller is this: don’t take long-term risks for short-term gain. Look after your reputation, manage your selling properly, provide good customer service and the rewards will come to you in due course. And you’ll get a little badge next to your name that makes people trust you more!
One possibility that you might have realised so far is what eBay can do for any other businesses you might have. Remember, millions of people visit eBay every day – why keep everything separate when you’re starting to tap into that kind of power? The next email will show you a few ways you can use eBay to grow your other businesses.
Going full-time as an eBay seller is living the dream: making a real income, working from home, being your own boss and all the rest of it. It’s the promise of a million scams, and it’s finally come true – at least for some.
What they don’t tell you in the success stories, though, is that becoming a full-time eBay seller is by no means for everyone. You really, really ought to try it part-time before you even consider taking it up full-time, and even then, caution is advisable. Before you burn your suit, here’s a list of questions you should ask yourself.
How Much Do I Earn From eBay Now?
Work out how many hours a week you spend doing eBay-related things (be honest here), and divide it by the average amount of profit you make in a week. If you were doing full-time hours, would you earn as much as you earn now?
Do I Have a Good Job?
Think about what you might lose if you give up your job to focus on eBay. If you’re in a well-paid job with good promotion prospects then it’s well worth reconsidering: you might get a few years down the line and wish you’d stayed in your traditional job, as you’d probably be the CEO by now.
Would I Really Make Much More Money?
Unless you’re selling a large quantity of small goods, most of what you do on eBay will be waiting for auctions to end – and you can wait at work just as easily as you can at home. This is why whether you would make more money on eBay really depends on what kinds of items you’re selling – for low value items, going full-time could be a good move. For high-value ones, the chances are you’ll hit the limits of how much money you have to invest in inventory long before you hit the limits on your time.
Is my Home a Good Place to Work?
Quite apart from anything else, you might find that the dream of home working is more of a nightmare in reality. People can start to depend on you to get things done that need to be done during the day. If you have a wife and children then they can resent the fact that you’re in the house but refuse to have anything to do with them for large parts of the day. Giving in to any of these things and stopping work for a while will cause your profits to fall.
Can I Survive if it All Goes Wrong?
In the end, would you be able to get by if you had a month or two where you sold literally nothing? Or would you be desperately looking around for a job and cursing the day you ever discovered eBay? That’s the real test.
If you made it through all these questions, then I guess you’re cut out for the eBay life – and even if you didn’t, you’d be surprised just how far you can get part-time. In our next email, we’ll show you how to think like the eBay elite: the PowerSellers.
I can answer this question for you right now: the answer is ‘yes’. In fact, the answer is ‘YES!’ – the biggest yes you’ve ever heard. Of the course the customer is always right. If you want to be a successful eBay seller, you should go miles out of your way to make sure every single one of your customers is 100% satisfied, however much time or money it might cost you.
A dissatisfied customer will leave negative feedback, and negative feedback is to be avoided at all costs. That one piece of negative feedback will always cost you more than it would have to deal with the complaint, whatever the value of the items you sell. You should consider any positive feedback percentage under 100% to be an absolute disaster, and a personal failure on your part.
But What If
But nothing! There is no situation where you, as a seller, should get into any dispute with a buyer. Here are a few common situations and how to handle them.
They say the item never arrived: Politely ask the buyer to wait a few more days to see if it turns up, and then email you again if it still hasn’t arrived. If it still hasn’t arrived, you should assume it was lost in the post somehow and offer to send a replacement if you have one, or give them a full refund otherwise. No, I don’t care what that costs you. Are you serious about selling on eBay or not?
The item has been damaged in the post: You must offer to replace it or take it back for a refund without hesitation.
They say the item doesn’t match the description: Resist the urge to email back with “yes it does, you just didn’t read the description properly”. Take the item back for a refund, and edit your description if you need to, to make any confusing points extra clear.
I’m sure you’re spotting a pattern by now. Offering a refund will make almost any problem go away, and it really will cost you less in the long run. Remember, one piece of negative feedback will stay with you forever, while having a 100% positive rating is like owning a bar of solid gold.
You should always handle customers’ complaints before they complain to eBay – in fact, you should email them pre-emptively to ask if they have any. Going through the dispute process is time consuming, reflects badly on you and is downright unnecessary.
Are you still not convinced? Think this would only work with cheap items? Well, you see, the higher the price of the items you sell, the more your reputation is worth to you. Let’s say you were selling $10,000 worth of items each week, for example, and making a $1,000 profit per week overall. You might think that refunding one customer’s $1,000 purchase would be a tragedy, losing you your whole week’s profit. It’s far better to look at it this way: if you don’t give that refund, then not only will you lose the next week’s profit, but you’ll probably lose a few weeks’ profit after that too. Now which option looks better?
I absolutely can’t emphasise enough the importance of really believing that the customer is always right. But trying to make excuses for complaints isn’t the only thing you need to avoid. There are a lot of pitfalls that you need to avoid if you don’t want to kill your business before it’s even started properly – and I’ll show you in the next email what they are.
When people place orders through your website, it
is always a good idea to immediately acknowledge
the purchase. One way to do this is with the use of
an autoresponder that can be integrated with your
shopping cart. In fact, many shopping carts that are
available today have their own autoresponders built
into the system.
When you set up your autoresponder to send a
message to someone that has placed an order,
there are several things that should be included in the
message. This is an opportunity to speak to your
customer, and to let them know about other deals
that you have or special items that you have available.
You should not miss this opportunity.
Do not try to get your thank you sales message on
the same autoresponder as the customers email
receipt. Putting the sales message on an email that
is automatically sent to grant the customer access
to their purchase is also a bad idea that would go
better with the receipt. Make sure your thank you
sales message is a message that is sent out all by
itself, so your customer can focus solely on that!
Thank the customer for their recent purchase. Tell
them how much their purchase will help them, and
then tell them about other available products that
work well with the one that they just purchased, or
that are similar to the one that they just purchased
in some way. For instance hair conditioner works
with hair shampoo. Vacuum cleaner bags or carpet
powder works well with vacuum cleaners. Just let
them know about the various products that you offer
that will compliment their purchase in some way.
The important thing is to not let your customer get
away without further contact! Think about being in a
brick and mortar store. When you go up to the
counter to pay, there are many items there for sale.
These items are meant to be picked up as last
minute purchases, or impulsive purchases. Your
thank you sales letter serves the same purpose.
Dont make the mistake of bombarding your
customer! You can usually send them periodic
information about your specials after they have made
a purchase through you, but emailing them on a
daily basis with your offers is not good business!
Use your autoresponder responsibly! Make sure that
your autoresponder is set up to handle automatic
remove requests, and make sure that the information
that you are sending your customers is of value to

Chapter 6- Tips 26-30
1 Tell your audience what kind of support they’ll
get after they buy. It could be free consulting, tech
support, free servicing, etc. This may also answer
some of their buying questions ahead of time.
People don’t want to buy products without knowing
you will be there to help if they have problems.
2 Ask people at the end of your copy why they
decided not to buy. This will give you new ideas on
how to produce ad copy that’s more profitable.
Have a web form or e-mail link in place so they can
answer you. You may find out they don’t like your
guarantee or graphics. It could be anything.
3 Think of ways to get your site or business in the
the news. You could sponsor a fundraiser, break a
world record, hold a major event, etc. Simply
write a press release about what you’ve
accomplished, then send it to media outlets that
cater to your target audience.
4 Hold a contest on your web site. Give other web
sites the option of offering it to their visitors. This’ll
multiply your advertising all over the Internet. It
would become a viral contest. Of course the contest
must either be ongoing or held regularly so you could
allow other online publishers to offer it to their visitors
5 Tell your potential customers that your ordering
system is highly secure. Also reassure them that
you take every effort to protect them. People want
to feel they are safe online. They want to know that
you care about their well-being. Tell them all about
what you currently do for them to make them feel
6 Carry business cards with you wherever you go.
Have your web address printed on them. You can
hand them out to anyone you meet. Just think of all
the people you meet on a regular basis: grocery
clerks, post office workers, bag boys, family
members, friends, salesmen/women, etc.
7 Contact national radio stations to ask them if they
are looking for guest speakers. Tell them your area
of expertise; maybe they’ll book you for a show.
Of course you would want to contact targeted
stations and shows which would want to know more
about you and your area of expertise.
8 Join clubs related to your area of business. You
could trade leads with other businesses. Learn new
ways to run your business and sell your products.
You could also create your own online business club.
You could provide private chat rooms, message
boards, articles, etc.
9 Think of a domain name for your web site that’s
easy to remember. It should be related to what your
business does, sells or provides. If there aren’t any
business names available, use your actual birth name.
You could at least brand yourself. Your own name
will give you credibility.
10 Position your web site at the top of pay-per-click
search engines. You will only pay your set amount
for each click-through you get to your web site. Just
make sure your profits will pay for your advertising
cost. If they won’t, maybe you could share a web
site with another related business and split the costs.
11 Allow your visitors or customers to increase your
traffic or sales. Ask them how you can improve your
business, web site or product. You can ask them at
your web site, in your e-zine, on your message
board, in your chat room, in your guest book, in your
product packages, etc.
12 Team up with other e-zines that have the same
target audience. Combine subscriber bases and then
publish one e-zine together to increase subscribers.
You could all include your ads and announcements
in the e-zine. You could also take turns for the top
13 Swap endorsement advertisements with other
web sites. Endorsement ads usually pull more sales
and traffic than regular advertisements. People have
taught themselves to ignore advertisements because
they see hundreds of them every day. Endorsements
usually don’t look or sound like normal ads.
14 Outsource part of your workload to save time
and money. You can spend more of your time and
money promoting your business. You’ll save money
on employee costs, space costs, training costs, etc.
Keep the work you enjoy doing to keep you
motivated and ship out the work you don’t like.
15 Include a signature file on all the e-mails you send
out. Provide your business name, phone number,
e-mail and web address, etc. Also include a brief
blurb for your business or the product you’re selling.
For example, you could say, “How To Wash Your
Car In Two Minutes or Less!”
16 Use pictures or graphics on your web site that
support the product you’re selling. They could give
your visitors a clearer vision of your product, the
benefits of the product, people’s emotion when they
own the product, etc. You could also use ‘before’
and ‘after’ pictures.
17 Create a friendly, long-term relationship with all
your customers. Practice good customer service
and follow-up with them on a regular basis. You
could follow-up with gifts, greeting cards, free things,
coupons, special offers, reminders, your e-zine,
helpful advice, etc.
18 Create strategic alliances with other web sites.
You could exchange banner ads, sell each other’s
products as back-end products, cross-promote, etc.
You could also create a web site together and
promote it on your separate web sites. You would
both just split the costs and profits.
19 Increase the perceived value of your product to
skyrocket your sales. Add on free bonuses, after-
sale services or an affiliate program. Other factors
that would help are: your own domain name, a
professional web design, a good-looking product
graphic and persuasive ad copy.
20 Give customers a discount on their total order
to increase sales. You could give them a discount
for ordering over a set dollar or product amount.
For example, you could say, “Buy over $39 worth
of products and get a 20% discount on your order!”
Another example, “Get a 15% discount if you order
3 or more products!”
21 Allow your visitors to reprint the content on your
web site. Just ask them to include your resource box
and a link to your site in exchange. This will turn
your content into a traffic machine and the external
links will help increase your ranking in some search
22 Provide a free contest or sweepstake at your
web site. It’s a fact, people like to win things. If you
can fulfill that need, people will visit. You can also
attract them to revisit by holding one every week or
month. You could also start an opt-in list for people
who enter your contest or sweepstake so you can
follow-up with them regularly.
23 Save time and money by using ad submitters.
You will reach a larger part of your target audience
far more quickly than by manually submitting your
ad. You should manually submit your ad to the most
popular web sites so you have a better chance of
being listed or placed in a good position.
24 Create a good first impression. You will not be
able to sell very many products if your visitors think
your web site looks unprofessional. Use crisp
graphics, attractive color combinations, a readable
text size, even spacing, even margins, bold headlines,
indent benefits, etc.
25 Stop procrastinating and start finishing all your
business tasks. Do one at a time. Don’t get caught
up thinking that you can never get them all done.
Make a list. Do the easiest or most crucial one first
and move down the list. Cross off each task as you
26 Develop a relationship with all your visitors and
customers. Tell them how much you appreciate
them visiting your web site or buying your product.
Invite them to online and offline events like free chat
room classes, parties, dinner gatherings, business
27 Hire a business coach to help improve you and
your business. That could help increase your sales,
motivate you, balance your workload, etc. It would
be like renting an extra brain. You would have
double the thinking power.
28 Stay away from being too comfortable with your
income or life. You should always be making new
goals for yourself and developing new sales ideas.
The world keeps changing and if you pause too long,
you might miss out. You only live once.
29 Make sure you don’t become a workaholic.
Your mind needs time away from your business life.
This will help your brain think clearly while working.
The best time to get profitable ideas is when you’re
not thinking about them. They just pop into your
30 Create and follow short/long-term goals for your
business. The short-term goals can create early
success and the long-term goals can create future
success. Design each goal so they all add up to your
ultimate goal. Don’t make your goals too unrealistic
otherwise depression and frustration could move you
farther away from them.
