Are You Overlooking the Security of Your WordPress Website?

Most of the users overlook the security of their WordPress website because there is a myth that it is one of the most secured CMS platforms. But the truth is that there is not a powerful way to completely protect a site or blog from hackers, spammers, and other security threats. A professional hacker will certainly find his/her way to get into your site, without your permission. So, it’s up to you whether you want to ignore your site’s security or want to give tough competition to hacker when he is trying to hack your site. Fortunately, there are a [...]

Time to update

It is really time to start thinking about getting your host to provide the latest version of PHP. To run WordPress we recommend your host supports: PHP version 7.3 or greater. MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.1 or greater. HTTPS support That’s really it. We recommend Apache or Nginx as the most robust and featureful server for running WordPress, but any server that supports PHP and MySQL will do. The above is from WordPress.org […]

The importance of ramping up and testing your message first

The temptation, with your incredible offering, your ultimate product or service, is to dive into something like Facebook Ads and spend, spend, spend. Expecting to retire on your own island, with a private yacht and far too many pina coladas for one person to consume. And it doesn’t happen. And you’ve spent a fortune. So how can you avoid this “oh so easy” way to waste a ton of advertising cash? You have to use what I refer to as the “Craft, Test, Scale” process. Crafting Before you spend any money looking to attract millions of customers, go back to [...]

Can you really make money as an affiliate marketeer?

  As an example an affiliate marketer, you promote a service sharing “your” unique link. In return, you get paid when someone signs up via that link. The amount you get paid, whether one-off or recurring and so on, will vary depending on the affiliate offer. For example, t4s.site will pay you 50% of every monthly payment someone pays, if they originally signed up via your link. You don’t even need to be a paying member yourself, but if you are, two affiliate sign-ups and you’re getting the service for free 😉 So what are the pros and cons of promoting service [...]

If we all hate popups, why do we have to consider them?

You hate them, I hate them, so why do they exist? Because they have been proven to work (sorry). Many visitors will be interested in what you are selling, but perhaps not quite enough to buy. Or perhaps they don’t “get” your landing page. A popup that appears when they go to leave (move their mouse off the screen) giving a final reminder or convincer (perhaps an offer?) to help them decide. Never use traditional pop-ups! The operating system based popups that used to be used, are hated by search engines and bad user experience. Make your popup part of [...]

Why you need to understand the 5 Stages of Customer Awareness in order to sell

Why you need to understand the 5 Stages of Customer Awareness in order to sell Legendary copywriter Eugene Schwartz wrote a book. It’s now out of print. But you can pick up a copy on Amazon for about £800 – when available! A key component of selling, according to Schwartz, is understanding how aware your target audience is of your offer. The good news is this: it’s not your responsibility to create desire when you’re promoting your business. Not at all. In fact, desire cannot be created (unless you have squillions of $$$ to create it). But awareness of a [...]
