OWN #9

The latest edition of the Once a Week Newsletter (OWN)

Back to normal. Right. Will we ever be “normal” again? Well, probably not like the old normal. But there's a new normal and it's always where we are when we say it.

That aside, today's OWN is a little bit late because I've been burning the midnight oil. And when you're my age, that means I worked until 10 last night. LOL.

I'm completely re-designing and re-doing “The Ultimate Guide to Blogging” except this time it won't just be Amazon Kindle ebooks. I'm building a site around the entire program.

It's not ready for prime time. I'll let you know when it is. Until then, let's get to the articles I found for you.

OWN #8 Special Cyber Monday Edition

The latest edition of the Once a Week Newsletter (OWN)

Hi,

Well, it's Monday, and you know what that means!

That's right. Time to shop. Wait. No, it's time to invest.

Invest in your business. How? It's not always about spending money.

Sometimes, it's about spending time and effort.

First, I wanted to mention that my “The Ultimate Guide to Blogging” books are all priced to sell on Amazon (they are gratis). You can find them here.

Second, spend some of your time reading the first two articles posted below.

Third, spend some of your money navigating to the last 3 links.

Why?

They are investments that, if actually put to use, will net you real profits.

OWN #7

The latest edition of the Once a Week Newsletter (OWN)

Hello!

Normally, I send this newsletter out to OWN subscribers only, but since I believe ALL of you can benefit from this special buying opportunity, I've let you in on it.

You'll get another one on Monday, which as you know is “Cyber Monday.”

I may even bring back some of my own hits to share with you.

Here's what I wrote OWN subscribers this morning:

(Oh, and if you got this twice it's because I'm a dummy and couldn't figure out how not to send it to you if you already got it)

***

It's almost that time. You know, turkey time. Oh, and “Black Friday” and then “Cyber Monday” and then Christmas! Or is it “Happy Holidays?”

I can't remember. Either way, the end of the year holiday shopping season is here.

So, as a marketer, you'll be putting out your own offers, yes? AND finding the best deals to pick up for yourself, right?

Right!

Below are 5 “articles” I picked up this week – the first two are info-only, and the other 3 are affiliate offers I think you would benefit from purchasing.

OWN #6

The latest edition of the Once a Week Newsletter (OWN)

Hello again!

Now that my state, in cooperation with a few other western states, have re-implemented COVID restrictions from the Spring, and added a few more, like quarantining 14 days on each leg of a road trip, we won't be going anywhere for Thanksgiving.

2020 sucks. 2021 ain't getting any better until we get a vaccine or two. And I fear that's a long way off before the Average Joe gets a shot at a shot.

But I digress. We have work to do! So let's get right down to it. Read this week's OWN, volume #6.

I'd love to hear back from you – are you enjoying and/or learning anything from these?
