The EBiz Developer - September, October 2001
Very few people excel at everything.
We all have our specialities, interests and passions.
The challenge often is choosing which passion to follow, which
interest to invest more of your life in.
I've come to one of those decisions, and the great result is that
it's forcing me to streamline and focus.
Regularly re-evaluating what you are doing is essential.
After all, we all know the saying: "If you keep doing what you're
doing, you're going to keep getting what you're getting"
Not getting the results should be a signal for a full-scale check-up.
But unfortunately too many of us just 'plod on regardless', doing
the same thing, and hoping that the results will improve 'someday'.
Someday never comes! There is no such day!
Start making each day count by knowing what it is that you expect
to get from each and every day.
If you're not reaching your targets, re-evaluate, focus down, and
above put the effort in.
From this issue some 'focusing down'. eBiz is to concentrate on
getting the most from your site, as cost-effectively as possible.
Now eBiz doesn't profess to know all the answers, but we are great
at uncovering the people who do.
So you can look forward to a leaner and meaner eBiz - more focused
And much easier for you to choose the information that you need
to make a success of your website.
Best of everything,
In This Issue:
1. Trafficology - Top ezine resource for web promotion.
2. Good call for UK based sites and businesses.
3. Free fonts for your site.
4. Willmaster - Scripts and webtools.
5. Sites moving...
6. Run a subscription site?
7. Additions to subscribers site and access codes.
1. Trafficology Ezine
Signing itself as 'The Science of Web Traffic' seems a bit over
the top, but over the three months that I've been subscribed there
have been many times each month that I've had to agree.
They filter through hundreds of ideas each month to bring us the
select few with the potential to add a those extra few thousand
hits to our sites.
And if you've got a idea, they'll even pay you for it if they use
Great direct and focused ezine, and it's free:
A free web based '192' service which allows people to manage their
own information listings and add any extra information. All information
is updated everyday via a direct link to BT's servers and includes
all the major telecoms providers. http://www.ukphonebook.com
3. Sources of free fonts and design resources:
Willmaster has been recommended before by eBiz.
I've been using several of his scripts for a while now and I can't
say anything negative about them. Solid scripts, professional and
Subscribe to their ezine and you get access to several of the free
scripts, as well as an archive full of tips and tutorials.
Constantly developing and improving, definitely one for your inbox.:
5. Moving sites
My re-evaluation over the last few months means a shuffling around
The ebiz subscribers site will be moving over to www.onlyforprofit.com
some time in the near future, as I develop www.empowersu.com to
match my future as a Life Coach...
Having nearly completed my qualification as a Professional Relaxation
Therapist, I am about to embark on training as a Life Coach, and
empowersu obviously would be a great name for this (I've already
bought life-coach.info as a secondary site...)
More news as it happens, but for the moment status quo is the same.
6. If you run or plan to run a subscription only site...
Take some lessons from Bill Myers, one of the top product developers
Having sold off at great profits many of his other businesses, he
has set a product developers website here
