So what’s happened this week?
The ‘UP’ Times:
The Digital Archives Shop
For a while now, I’ve wanted a ‘shop’ on my Digital Archives blog. My professional business writer partner has written hundreds of great quality articles and we thought we would package them up and sell them for just $1 each.
So, over the past few weeks I’ve been doing a lot of research on shopping cart plugins and eventually I invested in the WordPress eStore plugin.
A great investment. Once set up, you can have your products and services for sale within minutes. If you are looking for shopping cart functionality on your blog, I can recommend, the WordPress eStore plugin.
And if you want content for your blog, have a look at our article packs. A maximum of only 10 packs will be sold and each article works out to cost only $1.
Here’s the link for the shop: TDA Shop
I’ve started the process of moving my opt-in service to Aweber. I got fed up with too many emails not being delivered from my existing company.
I outsourced the set-up of my autoresponders and the coding in Aweber plus the changing of the HTML code for the actual opt-ins. It felt really good to hand over to someone else, a piece of work that would just take up too much of my time.
The first few ‘lists’ have now been transferred.
The issue I now face, though, is transferring the individuals who have already signed up with the ‘old’ service. I have to transfer them and get them to opt-in. I know I am going to lose quite a few off my list in transferring but I’m looking forward to being with just one service provider, Aweber.
As a result of the Problogger.com forum, I am building more and more blogging alliances and getting some of my articles posted as guest posts that are helping with traffic.
Just a quick note to say, my traffic jumped by 20% this week, mainly due to the post, Are these the top 11 Premium WordPress Themes?
So I’m pretty pleased!
The “DOWN” Times:
A second week of no “downs”. Fingers crossed it continues!
