Hi all,

Ok, today is going to be a big day for Steve’s Road to Success, as I am about to commission my biggest solo ad to date – around 3,400 clicks !

So, if all goes to plan, the ‘list size’ number just under my picture there in the top right hand corner should go up – at least somewhat.

I’ve been getting around 32% or so conversion from solos, so if all goes to plan, 3,400 clicks should deliver just over  a 1000 new subscribers, let’ see how I get on. (continue reading…)

One of the big things that has been on my mind recently is the open rate for the emails that I send out to my subscribers. I’m led to believe that an open rate of 20% is about average, but sadly, I’m currently on an open rate of 10.51%.

One of the things that could be effecting this is my emails being sent straight to the spam folder by spam filters – obviously if my subscriber never realises they have the email, how can they open it.

I’d love to think that everyone on my list sits waiting with baited breath for everything that I send out, but of course in the real world, life does not work like that  🙁

Getting your emails opened is not just important because you want everyone to see what you have to say, it also has an influence on how some spam filters treat your future emails. If they detect a very high percentage landing in peoples in-boxes and not getting opened, then they could conclude that you only send out spam, and slap any other emails down accordingly – not good !

So, I’ve been trying to come up with some way to encourage people to open my emails, and I am considering running what I call a ‘golden ticket’ campaign. (continue reading…)

Hi all,

I’ve set up a few Word Press sites over the last year or so and looked at quite a number of plugins, so I thought I’d mention 7 that have caught my eye and are big favourites of mine.

So, in no particular order…. (continue reading…)

I Bargained With Life For A Penny

“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”

Jessie Belle Rittenhouse (1869–1948)
