TIP OF THE WEEK
My Top 10 Favorite Internet Tools
When you make your living on the Internet, you can sometimes forget that the tools and resources you take for granted might rate an incredible discovery to someone who doesn't already know they exist.
Whether they help you save time, save money, or avoid frustration, these tools and services rate my highest recommendation for just plain making life easier, faster and cheaper.
1. Short Keys
Available free at www.shortkeys.com/lite.htm, Short Keys allows you to create shortcut keys to cut down on repetitive typing tasks. I absolutely love this program because of the amount of time it saves me every single day.
2. Good Keywords
Available free at www.goodkeywords.com, Good Keywords enables you to condense hours of keyword research into a few seconds. Find out the top keywords your target audience searches for so you can put your advertising dollars in the right spot to catch the biggest fish.
3. Mail Washer
Available free at www.mailwasher.net, this program enables you to spot and delete spam and viruses before downloading them to your computer. With so much spam clogging my email in-box, I couldn't survive any more without this program!
If you sell a downloadable product such as an ebook, report, or software, you can't beat clickbank for processing credit card payments. Not only do they take the payments and send you a check twice a month, they also plug your product into an existing network of thousands of affiliates who can sell it for you. - go here
Cheap, reliable, easy to use domain name registrar that only charges $8.95 per year for each domain name you register. Godaddy rates cheaper and just as, if not more, reliable than any other domain registrar. - go here
Visit www.infacta.com to download the free version of GroupMail. The program allows you to email and do mail merge to your entire database of contacts. It's a great way to stay in touch with customers, family, and clients.
As far as I'm concerned, Google.com rates as the Web's best search engine. When I need to find something online in a hurry, Google usually produces exactly what I want to locate! - go here
8. Front Page
Say what you want about Microsoft, but the FrontPage html editor has served me well for the last 5 years and counting. Though I don't use the more advanced features, I can always count on FrontPage to help me get my web pages done quickly and easily. - go here
9. Smart FTP
Log on to www.smartftp.com and download a free copy of the easiest FTP program I've every used. If you need to transfer files to and from a web server and you know how to use Windows Explorer, Smart FTP will enable you to upload files to the web like a pro in minutes.
10. Note Tab Light
Perhaps my favorite tool of all. Note Tab enables me to easily format text messages for my newsletters, manipulate html code and remove formatting from word processing documents. Log on to www.notetab.com for a free copy of the "light" version.

This is a free utility that works with Microsoft Outlook. For
every e-mail you receive, it consults a list of known spam. If
it gets a match, it dumps the e-mail into a special spam
folder. Users help generate the list of known spam by clicking
a Block button for every spam e-mail received. A central
server adds that spam to the list if multiple users click
Block. NOTE: this does not work with Outlook Express!.

3 Forgotten Selling Secrets!
--by Larry Dotson
1) End Pain
Most people want to avoid or end pain. Tell your prospects how much pain and the problems they will avoid or end if they buy your product. For example, you could say, "Just imagine being able to go out in public without thinking you're being made fun of behind your back"
2) Give Pleasure
Most people want to gain pleasure. Tell your prospects how much pleasure or the benefits they will gain if they purchase your product. For example, you could say, "Picture yourself lying on a beautiful sandy beach with nothing to look at but palm trees and a stunning blue ocean."
3) Build Curiosity
Most people are curious about things that can affect their current lifestyle. You could use words like "Secret" or "Confidential" in your ad. For example, you could say "If you order before June 24, 2003, you'll also get a Secret Mystery Gift valued at $20!"

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Never give up. Realise that when you face problems, you are almost there. 'No' is negotiable. Ninety percent of people give up when they are 10 percent from achieving their goals. The word that stops them is 'no'.
