On Tuesday at 3.00pm GMT (10.00am EST), I’ll be running a nickel sale for my new product, The Instant Survey Script.

If you want to bypass that nickel sale, then there’s good news if you take advantage of Adrian Ling’s summer sale. If you buy the 5 scripts I mentioned in yesterday’s post using my link, and then raise a ticket on the support desk, I’ll give you The Instant Survey Script for free tomorrow, a full day ahead of everybody else.

Of course if you’re one of the people who’ve already bought via my link, you qualify too, just raise a support ticket in the Instant Survey Script department of the help desk.

This offer expires at 3.00pm GMT Monday.

I’ve just got back from a nice little run out to Henley In Arden (on the way to Stratford) with the family and we went for an ice cream where we normally do. Inside the shop all I wanted was a single cone, and I asked for a scoop of banana fudge and a scoop of caramel instead of two scoops of one flavour. I’ve been served that in the past when I asked for it.

“That’s not allowed” came the answer from a 17 year old behind the counter. Not the girl who was serving us I have to add.

My wife tried to argue with her, but I said “Leave her alone, if it’s ‘not allowed’, there’s nothing she can do about it. She’s just an employee, and she’s ‘not allowed’ to make decisions.”

Cruel I know, and to make it worse I had a big grin on my face, but I have to say I got an immense feeling of satisfaction from saying it.

Oh well, one step closer to being a cranky old git I suppose. Victor Meldrew move over.

I’m going to start releasing some free PC (Windows) tools shortly for those people on my blog notify list. They’ll be in password protected posts and you’ll get the passwords (once) in the notify email I send out. After that, they’ll be either $5 or $10. I think that’s a fair price.

I’m also going to start releasing my “Install A Blog” videos for free, one or two per day. After working through all of them, you’ll be able to install your own WordPress blog if you don’t already know how to do it, and I’ll also cover which WordPress plugins I use and why.

I’ll only be making them available until the entire set is complete. Then they’ll join my increasing line up of products, probably for $27.

If you don’t have a blog, well, why not? Just for doing a bit of writing, you can build a mailing list. It seems that every time I make a blog post, I get new subscribers join my list. It’s not hard to do at all, and it’s an ideal way to kick start your internet business.

So if that tickles your fancy, watch out for those. Again all those posts will be individually password protected as an incentive for people to join my mailing list.

It’s easy isn’t it this marketing lark? 😉
