StudioPress Sites Hosting

Hi, Today I thought I’d mention Building your own WordPress website.

Is it Easy? Can I do it?

I remember when I had my own first website – many, many – maybe too many – years ago. Then I paid quite a considerable amount for someone to build and host my first website. It took a couple of weeks – I was not really consulted – and looking back it was crap I mean not very good. So late I went to night school to learn how to build a website and a little basic Html coding.  Within 6 months I’d built a website I was proud of. Today you don’t need to learn to code thanks to the universal “WordPress”; a free and open-sourcecontent management system.   Plus the costs of owning and running a website are so very much cheaper.

I have been using the services of StudioPress for many years.

StudioPress – they provide WordPress Themes (inc the Genesis Framework) and Plugins (including Backup Buddy and iThemes Security). These I use myself and have been a very happy customer. They also provide other advanced services, which I won’t go into here. Needless to say, they are reliable, established and recognized leaders in their fields.

Now they are providing an all inclusive package including hosting “WordPress Made Fast and Easy” –  in six steps you go from purchaser to publisher – You Get….

  • 20 Mobile-Optimized Themes
  • Industry Standard Design Framework
  • WordPress-Optimized Performance
  • SSL Certificate through Let’s Encrypt
  • Automatic WordPress and Genesis Updates
  • One-Click Install of Included Plugins
  • Zero “Hosting” Hassles
  • Rock-Solid Security
  • Advanced SEO Functionality
  • World-Class Support

Their plans (actually to keep things simple there are only two) are available in Monthly or Yearly payments. Of course, they offer a 30-day, 100% money back guarantee to all of their customers.

Get started with your own StudioPress Site, and discover what dazzling WordPress performance feels like.

Active Campaign Logo

My New Email System – ActiveCampaign

I’ve been wary of saying too much about this because I got all enthusiastic about GetResponse – which looks great on the surface, and is obviously perfectly fine for thousands of people – but when I looked under the hood and started designing real workflows and thinking about future scenarios – well, I can only conclude that their underlying data model “evolved”, rather than being properly designed from the start.

That means there are some pretty bad “gotchas” in their setup.

So, after being very upbeat about GetResponse and then becoming so disappointed by it, I was wary of getting hyper about my new system before digging into it in some depth.

Well, I’ve done that for long enough, and my verdict is

Five Stars!

The system I’m using is Active Campaign. (Yes, that’s an affiliate link, of which more later.)

I will write a lot more about Active Campaign, but for now, I am NOT saying ditch your current email service, but suggest when you are looking to upgrade or getting dissatisfied with your current provider you check out Active Campaign.

The fact is 99% of internet marketers only need the very bottom end of their plans (their Lite plan – $17 per month for 1,000 leads), which stands comparison with the higher-priced plans of most of the normal email service providers in terms of functionality AND cost.

Oh – and an interesting and revealing fact is that they provide a FREE conversion service for people using InfusionSoft: that’s the level of functionality to expect (but with a MUCH better interface).

So all that is Good!

The Bad part? Honestly, there’s nothing of note that’s bad. They don’t “like” totally 100% spammy emails – so be sure you provide valuable and interesting content; which you should be doing anyway!

The Unfortunate part?

Their affiliate commissions are rubbish! Dammit!

Anyway – if you’re in the market for an email service provider, sign up using this link – Active Campaign – so that I don’t miss out on those massive $1.70 per month commissions!! So I’ll never be able to buy a yacht and live on a remote paradise island for a long time yet. Double Dammit!!!!!

Make Your Own Comparison of these popular Email Service Providers…..




Note: They all offer a trial period – so try before canceling your current service.  I Have used all the above at one stage or another (but I don’t recommend constant switching.)

With ActiveCampaign you’ll get a higher return from your marketing and sales processes. Your conversion rate will increase as you send targeted, personalized messages that align with your contacts’ interests. You’ll have more loyal customers, more repeat orders, and more referrals as you nurture a strong relationship throughout all stages of the customer lifecycle.

I’m really sorry if you don’t get this in time and you have missed out BUT this is a last minute notice and it ends about today.  Hopefully, you get this in time. <<< ENDING NOW!

ProductDyno is one of the finest products I have seen released in a while AND it is from PromoteLabs.

I have purchased this myself it and it gets my 100% seal of approval – without question.  I am also advised further additions & improvements are to follow – there is a 60-day money back option if you are disappointed 🙂

So, if you miss out on this then there isn’t anything I can do – this is your VERY LAST CHANCE to grab this for a  lifetime fee.   UPDATE  The lite time offer has closed BUT you can still sign up for a 3 Years for One Licence Fee from$67

Oh… and if you can’t afford it,  here is a sneaky little hack :

Go to the salespage here : <<< 3 for 1 year offer!


I hope you find this information useful and beneficial –  enjoy Brian

Andy Brocklehurst said: I love it. It’s what EverLesson SHOULD have been but those guys stuffed it up and made it a monster.

Check the review out NOW as for the next day or so you can still get the early adopters  access for a low one time payment.

Society 11 Membership

Society11 logo

What is Society11?



Here’s a quick review from fellow member Brian  – More Details Here =>>> Click Here <<<

Society11 is a private community of like-minded individuals and marketers who want to grow and develop their online businesses in an ethical way.

Founded by  Andy “The Honey Badger” Brocklehurst and his partner in crime, Curt “The Niffler” Crowley, they set out with a very simp-two part mission statement:

1) To create a proper community like we used to have in the early days of sites like the Warrior Forum.  Because that is what that was way back in the early 2000’s.  A place where you could get GOOD advice and build relationships and partnerships with other marketers.

2) To make it the best value Internet Marketing Membership… BAR NONE!

Society 11 Mission Statement

This is probably one of the best resources that Internet Marketing has going for it right now. I’ve gotten more value from the FB group posts alone, than you would see in ‘training’ courses for hundreds of dollars. Not to mention the sh*t ton of downloads in the member’s area. Great work guys!!

How Much is it to Join Society 11?

Society11 has a monthly fee.  But when you consider the amount of junk you’re going to stop wasting your money on every month it soon becomes apparent that it’s worth every penny.

Our end goal for Society11 is to be charging $67 – $97 a month (and many are telling us it’s already worth that), but right now it won’t cost you anywhere near that because you can lock in the low early-bird price for as long as you want to remain a member.

Join Society11 for just $47.11/month (You can lock in this price now if you join before the next increase later.) >>>Click Here<<<

The dark side of web hosting recommendations

Why So Many Bloggers Recommend Bluehost or Hostgator Hosting

(And Why I Don’t)  web-hosting – by David Risley (

By David Risley on February 13th, 2017
This post is not going to be your typical Bluehost or Hostgator loving post.

There are a lot of bloggers doing that. You know several of them if you’ve been around much. Some of the guys doing it have big names you may have heard of.

And they may do it with completely honest intentions. Or… it could be because of the fairly sweet affiliate commissions. You just don’t know.

But, many months back, I had to make an executive decision.

Continue to recommend the hosting company who paid me the highest commission? Or switch it up and recommend the people who I think are truly better.

Well, after I got hacked on Bluehost, I chose the latter.

My commissions aren’t as high, but I can sleep better knowing I’m serving my readers better.

So, let’s do some real talk here…

The Power of a WordPress Blog

“It Started on WordPress and Made This Author More than $100 Million…” by David Perdew

Last weekend, the second in author E.L. James series hit the box office.

The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, did nearly $50 million at the box office crushing everything else except The LEGO Batman Movie.

With the release of her latest film, I thought it would be great to review how all this started with a blog post.

Grey birthed a new genre commonly known as “mommy porn”? The book’s genesis was as a story – not a very good one either – on a Twilight Fan Fiction site in 2010.

(Unfortunately, the author’s publisher has removed practically all traces of the early work on the Internet)

She quickly moved the story to a personal website ( which has since been rolled into her current author page at

The response was overwhelming. She began selling copies as an ebook of the early rendition and then quickly contracted with a print-on-demand paperback publisher.

The author’s FAQ page says:

Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed were never self-published as these novels. An earlier version of this story began as Twilight fan fiction which was posted on the internet. The trilogy was picked up by an Australian publisher, The Writer’s Coffee Shop, who released them as e-books and print-on-demand paperbacks.

According to (

A tiny Australian publisher then released them as ebooks and print-on-demand paperbacks, selling about 250,000 copies. Random House snapped up the rights in a seven-figure deal, rereleased the ebooks and made 50 Shades widely available in paperback for the first time — where it achieved stratospheric success.

Fast forward a year later and Fifty Shades of Grey was at the top of the New York Times Bestseller list. Soon, it would be followed by two more Grey books, all in the top 10 list.

Just the list ma’am, just the list…
Remember Dragnet from the old days when Jack Webb played Sgt. Joe Friday. Look it up on IMDB kids.

Sgt. Friday’s favorite line delivered in a dry monotone was, “Just the facts ma’am, just the facts.”Continue reading
