48 Hour Special – Multiple Streams Theme

Update: I’ve uploaded a few videos on the usage of the theme here:-

***

Since I closed the door on the first Multiple Streams Theme for Business and Pro Bloggers three weeks ago, I’ve had a stream of requests asking when it will be available again.

Happily, the multiple income streams theme for WordPress is now available for immediate purchase at just $17 for the next 48 hours.  After that the price will rise ($27) for 14 days while we set up the official site, and then finally rise again to its regular price.

But until 6.00pm GMT on Friday Monday 5th July, you can get it for just $17.

PLEASE don’t do what some people have already done and beg me to sell it at the original pre-order price, I won’t be moved on this, and $17 is still an incredible bargain considering the work that’s gone into it and what you’re getting.

I also only intend to sell 200 copies in total, and 60 have already gone on pre-order, leaving just 140 remaining.

And this bundle is so good I don’t expect to hit the final price before closing the doors forever on the theme.

What bundle?

Well, we wanted to make sure that the theme you were buying was as flexible as we could possibly make it.  So we also included one of two new plugins I’ll be releasing shortly.

Ads Manager

The plugin we’re including is called “Ads Manager” and is incredibly powerful.

When you see how it can display or suppress ads on your site, you’ll be blown away at how useful it is.

Ads Manager allows you to only display ads to visitors based on rules you select or create.

This is because if you have regular visitors to your blog, then they’re going to get pretty fed up seeing the same old ads the whole time (I know I do) and prevent “ad blindness” from setting in.  Now you can just tick a box that stops an individual ad from showing to your regulars.

You can also do things like only show a particular ad to visitors who have come from search engines.  Or only show the ad on posts that are more than 2 weeks old.

And just to really give you some power over how and when your ads are displayed, we also included WordPress Conditional Tags as one of the rules you can set.  There are a LOT of tags that can be used and you’ll find out where to find them in the included mst-readme.txt inside the zip.

So for example, you could add is_front_page() to the conditional tags box and your visitors would only see the ad on the front page of your blog.

Or you could add is_single() and your visitors would only see the ad on a post and not on your front page, or you could use is_page() and the ad would only appear on pages, and so on.  You can even specify individual posts and pages, or put another way, it enables you to show different ads on different posts and pages.

It gives you almost total control over your ads and it’s PERFECT for use with the Multiple Streams Themes.

Key Points

Here are the key points of the theme and plugin bundle:-

o Designed to provide you multiple income streams.
o Carefully placed subscriber sign up box in the “Golden Triangle”.
o Latest posts at a glance.
o Featured freebie.
o Movable “featured” boxes and ads, all widget driven.
o Product spotlight.
o Time sensitive offers.
o New releases.
o Themed sidebar ads for your affiliate links.
o Sidebar ad graphics are editable.
o Ideal for use with the “Subscribers Only” plugin.
o Multi-site usage licence for sites you personally own.
o Both WP 2.9 and WP 3.0 with Custom Menu versions supplied.
o WordPress AutoResponder being updated to work with the theme.
o Only 200 copies will ever be sold.
o Ads Manager plugin included for free.

In all, the Multiple Streams Themes will provide you with everything you need to become a pro-blogger if you’re not already, and will certainly improve your sites appearance if you are.

You can see an annotated JPEG of the design here:-

The theme has been designed with you in mind and allows you to create a blog where you can build your mailing list (vital), review products, and promote multiple products as an affiliate.

In other words it’s been designed to make your life easier.

Update:  The special is now over, but you can still get the theme for $27 until we officially open the site.  There are 38 copies left as I write this.

Multiple Income Streams Theme Pre-Order

The first multiple income streams theme for WordPress is now available on pre-order for just $10 – the completed theme itself won’t be available for a couple of weeks.

Here are the key points:-

o Designed to provide you multiple income streams.
o Carefully placed subscriber sign up box in the “Golden Triangle”.
o Latest posts at a glance.
o Featured freebie.
o Product spotlight.
o Time sensitive offers.
o New releases.
o Themed sidebar ads for your affiliate links.
o Sidebar ad graphics are editable.
o Ideal for use with the “Subscribers Only” plugin.
o Multi-site usage licence for sites you personally own.
o Only 50 copies (was going to be 75, now limited further).

In case you missed my email yesterday, you can see an annotated JPEG of the design here:-

The theme has been designed with you in mind and allows you to create a blog where you can build your mailing list (vital), review products, and promote multiple products as an affiliate.

In other words it’s been designed to make your life easier.

I’ve had some GREAT comments from people, and just a single negative comment from someone I wasn’t sure “got it” (hi Rain), but I know this is a common misconception amongst non-marketers and newbies.

He suggested this was a web template – it isn’t, it’s a full blown WordPress theme – and that “templates” like this were available for free.  Well, after several years of searching I have yet to find a good one, which is the whole point I had this one built.

He then suggested an expensive site which I’ve used a couple of times in the past.  The problem with templates from that site is they’re designed by designers who think they know what businesses want, but they don’t address the real needs of people like you and me – the marketer and professional bloggers.

Okay, enough dwelling on the negative.  Most people see the benefits and can’t wait to get it.

In fact I had a very good suggestion (hi Maury) to list some plugins that would be useful with this theme and also come up with some scenarios to use them.

I’ll go away and have a good think about that.

First thoughts though are the fact that this THEME is designed to help you build multiple income streams, and when used in conjunction with the two list building plugins I released recently, will help you do just that.

And as I said yesterday, at the moment it’s just a design, but it’s currently being sliced and developed into a WordPress 2.9 theme (and planned to be converted later into a WP 3.0 theme with custom menu support).

My estimate is it will be a couple of weeks before it’s complete.

This is your chance to pre-order for just $10.

Once the theme is complete and the official site is live, it will be available for $27 for a short time before I set the final price.

Today it’s just $10 on pre-order.

But only for the first 50 people to get there.  (It was going to be 75, but I decided to limit it further to retain the product value – I will only ever sell 200 copies in total.)

Ah, one more thing as someone asked about this.  It’s a multi-site usage licence which means you can use it on as many sites as you personally own.

UPDATE:  Okay, I’m happy to say this has been quite popular (which is a relief when you’ve hired someone to make WP themes for you) and so I’m making a final TEN copies available for pre-order.  It looks like I’m going to be out and about for most of the day, but it’s likely that they’ll be gone by the time I get back and I’ll close it down.  (It’s not the end of the world, the theme will still be available at $27 for a short time when it’s released before I set the final price.)

What Would YOU Pay?

What would YOU pay for a WordPress theme designed to bring you in multiple streams of income?

Let’s get specific.  Take a look at this JPEG image in a new tab in your browser:-

http://www.frankhaywood.com/wordpress-design01.jpg

Is that nice, or is that NICE?

It’s been designed especially to allow you to review products, build your mailing lists and promote multiple products as an affiliate.

And at the moment it’s just a design, but it’s currently being sliced and developed into a WordPress 2.9 theme (and planned to be converted later into a WP 3.0 theme with custom menu support).

You want?  I know I do, and I can’t wait to get it online onto one of my blogs – I am REALLY excited about it.

Now I’ll be totally up front with you about this.  I outright STOLE the idea for this theme from the brilliant Jimmy D Brown.  Until recently he used to supply a theme similar to this (only not as good looking) for $27.

He’s now “retired” his version of this theme along with some other of his smaller products as he’s moving into bigger ticket items like coaching.

You can no longer buy it from him, although I was very tempted to pay him $97 in return for resale rights, but I decided to go one better and have my own designed instead.

And what you see after countless fruitless hours of searching for a good designer and hundreds of dollars later is the result.

It’s not ready yet.  I estimate there’s still at least a couple of weeks work to turn it into a WP theme to my standards – I want multiple “sidebars”, and when the final version of WP 3.0 comes out, custom menu support.

If you used this together with my “WordPress AutoResponder” and “Subscribers Only” plugins (nickel sale still running), it would be an awesome combination, and I don’t use awesome lightly as it does get overused nowadays doesn’t it?

So, going back to my original question.  What would YOU pay for a theme like this one?

Or put another way – what should I charge for it?

$27?  $47?  It’s what I would consider a premium WordPress theme, and they typically go for $75 or more licenced to a single site.

Well, I haven’t decided, after all it’s not ready yet.

And as it’s not ready, how about if I offered it to you on pre-order?

How about if I offered it for…

$10

But only for the first 75 people.

Does that sound reasonable to you?

For your money you’ll get access to your personal download page (courtesy of SmartDD), and when the theme is completed, I’ll send you an email and your zipped theme will apear on your download page.

Now I know you might be thinking WHY am I doing this?  Why don’t I just wait until the theme is complete, and then release it for a much higher price?

Simple.  It’s another thank you for continuing to be a subscriber.

That’s why I also run nickel sales – just to say thank you for being there.

Okay?

So tomorrow afternoon I’ll let you know where the first 75 people to get there can pre-order for just $10 for a multi site licence.

Let’s say 2.30pm GMT (9.30am EST).

I’m sorry if you don’t get there in time tomorrow, I will offer it to you for $27 at a later date before setting the final price so it won’t be the end of the world if you miss it.
