Default Free Marketing Tips

I have put together a small "e-book" outlining some marketing tips and advice. I hate calling it an e-book because this medium has been so abused by affiliate marketers. There is some good information in this one though I promise. You can get your free copy here.

You don't even need to enter your email address for access. Simply visit the link and right click on the image to save. I hope you all enjoy. Let me know what you think.

Thanks guys.

Hedgemaster, What did you think of the book? Was there any ideas you plan on implementing?

I have more things to write about. I am no author by any means and it is hard to keep my ideas formed and well focused so I kept it short.

Once I get some feedback on this, part 2?

I hadn't considered the impact of not wearing a shirt. I probably should consider wearing pants too.






Overall, much of it seems to be "common sense", but as the saying sort of goes, "common sense isn't all that common".
I'm sure everyone can pick up an idea or two even if they already understand most of what you put out there.

The "marketing idea" that I hadn't considered was the placement of "visit www.mywebsite.com/specialoffer.html for a
$10.00 coupon" on flyers.
Good idea.

If I get stuck (or am about to jump off a bridge) I may contact you regarding a web page. I really want to do this on my own, but every time I mess around with it, my head wants to explode.
If I do decide to have someone else create a site for me, my requirement for a website is that I can alter the content on my own, without needing to ask the person who built it to make changes.

Thanks for the feedback. I understand wanting to do things yourself. I am the same way with a lot of stuff. I'm not always about making a buck so if you do decide to jump in and build your own site and get stuck or have some questions, I'd be happy to help free of charge.

Thanks Steve! I have received several emails and I'm optimistic that I will have some lawn care sites to build really soon. Of course everyone will see them as soon as possible.

For those of you that read the "book", I hope you found the information helpful. I'm open to all feedback.

For those that have emailed and posted here. Thanks!

Can you tell us a little about how doing it that way is better than putting the coupon on the flyer itself?
