Skype Video Recording

I have toyed around with doing interviews on Skype on some of the sites, and the results have been somewhat less than wonderful. The interviews themselves were great, and actually got some good traffic in return for the information presented. And doing video interviews is a super method of "borrowing Read more [...]

Yesterday, I got in on a sale for a product pitched on JVZoo called "Complete FaceBook Domination" which I was able to get for $10.

Spying on your competition is a time-honored method of obtaining an advantage when you are first starting out in any business.

Some W00t! Milestones

Don’t Pay for SEO!

I've already published a couple of articles on SEO, and why it is basically a fool's game. I wasn't really going to write another, since I felt that I pretty much felt I had said my piece.
