A company I'm affiliated with is having a HUGE campaign on Wednesday. So, I email all my subscribers to promote it. I leave the computer for a couple hours and come back to find that some links were clicked.For some reason, I decide to test my links now... why didn't I earlier? No clue.2 of them are dead and take me to a 404 error! All because I forgot to include https://www. at the front of the link. UGG!So, I create some redirected posts on my website. all the "/" and "." I include in the lin

I have a Facebook group for customers who frequently visit my site to shop or get more info about the products in a personalized way. Over 100 members are there this week, I asked them how they like to access information and be served. Now, I'm getting a request to create a podcast. Do you recommend using a plugin on Wordpress or going directly to iTunes and Google Play?

I was just checking my email and found my first Wealthy Affiliate and Jaxxy referral email notifications. I was totally surprised because my links are on the footers of my websites about homeschool and essential oils. Anyway, I'm excited!

Once again, one of the companies I was working with had a daily BOGO special M-F last week. I emailed all 175 of my followers on my website (plus 141 people who have ordered in the past) about the deals and ran my own giveaway. I also ran an unpaid Facebook campaign by announcing the week of promotions and inviting people to join a private group (thus increasing the odds that they'll see my daily posts about promos and my giveaway).Sales increased by $3646, making it the 2nd highest month in s

As I've been Christmas "window" shopping online for myself, I wasn't totally sure about which models of things I wanted to buy. So I posted on my Facebook Timeline asking if anyone has these products, what they thought, and if they would recommend it or a similar product. From these links, I earned $8.60 from 12 shipped items worth $208.31. Now I know whether to keep the products I'm interested in on my wish list or not and I made some money in the process.

On a roll over here! Two days in a row.Today I wrote a review using the low hanging fruit method on a product I want, but don't own yet. I believe I spent about 6 hours researching and writing the review. The product is for a company I recently affiliated with and was unknown to me even though I've been in this niche for many years. I look forward to seeing how it performs, especially since there aren't a lot of other reviews on this product yet- just testimonials from customers on the product'

This has been a crazy week for me. I imagined things would go a certain way, but they turned out very differently. It kind of felt like I had a lot of "fires" to put out. Just as I would plan to sit down and homeschool my kids or work on my websites, a "fire" would come out of nowhere. I'd have to drop everything and "extinguish" it.My week could be summed up with these emoticons.Just this afternoon, 3 "fires" happened in rapid succession. To top it off, my kids started having meltdowns (probab

It's Back to School time and my site is about homeschooling. Even as a homeschooler, I indulge in the Back to School sales. So, today, I posted about the back to school sales offered by the people I'm affiliated with.I probably could write a ton of material prior to listing all the sales I found and their expiration dates, but I didn't. I spent more time focusing on choosing which sales would appeal to other homeschooling and traditional schooling families.My goal is to check back with these co

This week, I shared my strategy for increasing sales during a BOGO week for one of the companies I am affiliated with. I ran into a few snags with the email campaign portion.I use the MailPoet plugin for my autoresponder, newsletters, etc. on my site. There, I had the option to use SendGrid or my website's host. I chose SendGrid.First, I exhausted all of my SendGrid free emails (the SendGrid allows 12K to be sent out for free). I didn't realize it right away, so a bunch of email errors started
