21 Quick Actions You Can Do Today to Set Your Blog Up for Massive Success — Think Traffic

21 Quick Actions You Can Do Today to Set Your Blog Up for Massive Success — Think Traffic.

Wow! here is an amazing site – everything you need to know about massive success, and he is not kidding. He even has a post entitled How to write epic shit…

Okay, will be spending some time here, then will consolidate all the feedburner stuff into one post and delete multiple.

This is a private blog that I use to keep track of my research into massive success on the web. By post or by mail!


Your feed is ready for the world. Now what?

Your feed is ready for the world. Now what?

I have just gone through the process of adding feedburner to my blog. It is now google feedburner, and is an easy process, just following the prompts in each window. Now on the last screen, I get to choose how to integrate it.

Feedburner allows people to share your blog – to receive updates automatically and to email a specific post.

Many people recommend using feedburner, but deactivating the automatic feed. I also used Press This to start this post – a little ‘app’ or bookmarklet that copies a site instantly for adding to a blogpost.

Adding Feed to Blogger

Have no idea yet how to do this…. Here is the help text!

Adding FeedBurner Email to your TypePad or Blogger blog

Once you have activated FeedBurner’s Email Subscriptions service for your feed, you can easily incorporate the code to display a subscription form (or link) on your website if you use Blogger or TypePad.

To most easily add the form or link to your site, look for the following menu below the subscription form or link code box on the Email Subscriptions setup form for your feed:


Choose Blogger or TypePad, then click Go, and you will be taken to the appropriate site to complete the code widget installation process automatically.

Note: This widget feature will only work properly if you are using a standard Blogger Layout with your Blogger blog, or are using Standard Templates (not Advanced Templates) with TypePad. In both of those cases, you must manually edit your template code to insert the subscription link or form code FeedBurner provides you.

Also can’t publish as draft here, so apologies for the junky posts until I fix them!

Feedburner Learning

FeedBurner also offers our Email Subscription service, which uses your feed to send an update once each day that you make new post(s) to your blog. If you want to offer a link to subscribe to these email updates to your readers, visit and activate the Email Subscriptions service on the Publicize tab for your feed. Then, copy the “Subscription Link” code we offer into your blog as a “Text” widget under Presentation > Widgets in the WordPress Dashboard for your site.

Yikes! had to read this a bunch….


Choosing an Emarketing and CRM Program

The programs people I like to read are using range from infusionmail to icontact, aweber and priorityonemail.

Here is a fast run-down of the differences between them, just excerpts from each home page.

You can check out youtube too.

First, hands down, Infusionsoft wins. Most sophisticated, integrated system to really make you money. 2 users, 5,000 contacts, 100,000 emails per month, starting at 199$ per month.

If that budget is too rich, then icontact will offer a free program up to 2,000 emails per month. Now, 5000 contacts, 14. per month, 2,500 is only 29,00 then 5,000 is 47 per month. Add sign in pages to websites, to facebook fan pages and more.

” icontact social tools are so straightforward and effective…”

Checked out priorityoneemail and kept getting bumped to ishoppingcart and elsewhere, so confusing and not for us just now. Seems to be all about fulfilment and we are interested now in building subscriber lists and managing contacts.

Sorry Aweber, did not see where to get more from you, and decided to go with icontact for now. Aiming for infusionsoft in the future.

Providing a professional image and staying organized both can benefit from Hoot Suite. Try it!
