P2S Training – Week 9 &10 – Niche and Product Ideas

  I have lumped these 2 weeks together in this progress report because we are now at a stage where we need to decide, firstly on a niche and secondly establish two or three product ideas within that niche, so the two weeks training tended to blend together. JT encouraged us to think through this…

P2S Training – Week 8 – Promotion via Popup

  I enjoyed this week the most, because it took me into new territory. The task was to install Link Supercharger, provided free to members by Simon Phillips & Randy Smith, colleagues of JT on this training program. It is a very clever bit of software which cloaks ugly affiliate links. This then led to setting…

P2S Training – Week 2 – OptimizePress

The overall task this week was to buy and install OptimizePress to the WP platform of our blog. This was pretty straightforward, the first minor obstacle for me was, since I’m using a Mac pc, it unzips files automatically on download into a normal folder. However, I soon discovered that by right clicking I am…
