The Internet Marketing Syndicate: "The Syndicate is a cartel at the center of the get rich quick world of Internet Marketing. Each of the members tries to pass himself off as a freewheeling entrepreneur. An individual rising above :: a rogue :: fighting back against the workaday ways of our corpo-centric suburbanized society. Each sells a version of this easy freedom in a bottle to seekers … the sadder the seeker … the better. But the dream :: like the cake :: is a lie. Success in “the industry” correlates not with value :: individuality :: or effort … but with proximity to a toxic core whose basic operations constitute a serious felony and moral failing."

If you want high converting Twitter click throughs, have a great, interesting summary of who you are and what you do. DO NOT use the words expert, guru or “I can show you how to gain 1,000 Twitter followers a day”. You should put how you are unique and what you do. Those are your couple of lines to convert that Twitter user into a click to your website and sounding like spam is going to get them to jump off your page."

MailChimp Vs. Aweber: "Advantages of Aweber as Compared to MailChimp" & MailChimp Vs Aweber – A Comparison Of Two Email Marketing Providers | "However, once I switched over to Aweber, I realized how much more powerful their tracking and email management features were compared to Mailchimp. You only have to design your forms once but tracking is something you’ll be doing all the time. In addition, having phone support is priceless. That and getting suspended without warning by MailChimp left a really bad taste in my mouth. If they simply gave me an early heads up, it would have made my life much easier. Trust me. There’s nothing more frustrating than not being able to get someone on the phone when something goes wrong." & Aweber vs. MailChimp vs. ConstantContact - The 4-Hour Work Week and Timothy Ferriss: "I've been using Mailchimp for about a month now (after using Constant Contact for over a year) and have found it to be 1) much more versatile than CC, 2) much better looking overall (the emails themselves and the UI of the site are much more modern-looking and comparing Keynote to Powerpoint), and 3) it's quite cheap for what you get. I know the pricing is comparable to (which I haven't used, but looked into for comparison purposes), and I went with Mailchimp and have been very happy with my choice." & Constant Contact versus Aweber : "Update (May 2010): I am now exclusively recommending AWEBER & not Constant Contact. I had an unfortunate run in with a Constant Contact representative & as a result prefer to affiliate myself with a company that appreciates those who send them business." & which do u use, prosender or aweber - Black Hat Forum Black Hat SEO: "Used both GetResponse and AWeber. I dropped GR but I'm still in at AWeber because I consider it a far superior service. I too got in under the old pricing. I have no experince with ProSender (Mike Filsaime's private label of Aweber)." & Aweber vs iContact vs Mailchimp & Email Marketing Services Review 2010 - ignores AWeber for some reason.

I've been researching for months on what to choose... Top choices today seem to be AWeber (simplicity, usability, top marketers use it), Mailchimp (great integration with CMS-es like Drupal & WordPress) & iContact (based on older research and popularity in this part of the world) & GetResponse (tons of users and info about in my niche - real estate)

Lynch briefly describes how a screen reader will parse and communicate the content on a web page... Lynch also recommends using a couple of FireFox extensions of the Firefox Accessibility Extension and Fangs, which will help you verify the accessibility of your site. In her DrupalCon presentation slides, she also mentions VisCheck to see your site as a colorblind person would perceive it." & Drupal Voices 98: Everett Zufelt on Accessibility in Drupal | Lullabot & excerpt from Everett's email to me: "If you will be doing the testing in house I would recommend that you use NVDA, an open source screen-reader for Windows. NVDA can be downloaded from You can also test the page with the WAVE evaluation tool from WebAIM. Testing with a screen-reader and using automated tools like WAVE are useful steps in assessing the accessibility of a site, however, nothing compares to having someone with experience and expertise perform a thorough evaluation."

Why Facebook Marketing Slaps Twitter Marketing In the Face | Search Engine Journal:
  1. "Huge Penetration: As the search volume Insights charts show, Facebook is more popular, and Twitter marketing is stagnant.
  2. Reliable Stats: Facebook’s built-in engagement stats rock, they tell you what FB cares about, and they won’t just disappear any old day like a third party Twitter app might.
  3. Ad Integration & Targeting: Facebook ads are a powerful synergistic way to add power to your FB page, and their targeting ability ROCKS.
  4. Mainstream Appeal: Facebook is multimedia – pictures and video – and if you didn’t notice, people like TV better than books. Facebook is more engaging and intuitive for normal people. (No, geeks are not normal people)
  5. Braslow’s Hierarchy of Awesomeness (see below): This classic marketing framework I created two weeks ago demonstrates the importance of brand. It’s easier to brand with Facebook than Twitter. Branding is key in red oceans because it’s the only thing your competitors can’t copy."
