I’ve pulled together some very good, very basic, very simple to follow tutorial sites that will make learning that cryptic code a LOT easier. HTML and CSS are basic sets of commands that a web server uses to define and display a website or web page. It is the “secret code” that sits behind every website online today.
You should go ahead and just view the HTML code that makes up a favorite webpage by Right Clicking (on a PC) somewhere on the web page and selecting “View Source”. That will bring up a new web page with all the HTML and a bit of CSS possibly, that makes the page look the way it does. It is the set of instructions that the web server sends to our browsers that creates the website we are looking at.
First are 2 excellent sites that I have used on numerous occasions as resources to look up a bit of code or figure out how to modify some code:
W3Schools.com is an amazing resource tool. Every snippet, every bit of code is explained in great detail and best of all they give examples of use (I learn a LOT faster from seeing an example) >> Check Out W3School.com
HTMLDog.com (where do they get these names, eh?) is another excellent resource site with a huge amount of tutorials for BEGINNERS that go through all of the most used HTML language commands. Simple, basic stuff… Check Out >> HTMLDog.com Beginner Tutorials
Next I found this awesome YouTube (is there ANYTHING that you can’t learn “how to do” on YouTube??) tutorial series that focuses purely on learning the HTML language basics and as well, and almost more importantly, CSS language (which is the bits that “style” what you see on a webpage). Check Out >> DevHQ’s YouTube HTML & CSS Training
It’s always good to have a small bit of HTML and CSS knowledge as it really does come handy sometimes. Even just having places like the above that you can use as references makes a huge difference in your online/internet marketing business. I’m sure that any of the above will give you a great head start with your squeeze pages, landing pages, autoresponder forms, modifying some sales pages, etc. etc. etc.
You’ve probably heard this time and time again, online/internet marketing gurus have been jamming this message down our throats for years…
“Thou Shalt Track Your Results!”
But most of the time they don’t explain just WHY we should follow this commandment….
1. You Waste Less Time/Effort/Money – Instead of spending a bucket load of money on advertising campaigns that only produces mediocre results and/or profits’, tracking will give you the feedback info which you can then use to Continue reading →
Wow… where do I start and what do I add and not add to this list. There are SOOOO many great resources out there that can help streamline your online tasks that I just don’t know for sure what to list here… but I’ll start with my favs, OK? I use a lot of these almost daily so I KNOW they work and have excellent features. These days getting things done efficiently and effectively does NOT need expensive software or monthly dues.

Ok this is the first demo of that new WP Notify Wizard pop-up which I picked up yesterday.
I grabbed the OTO1 and OTO2 also so that I could get the nifty animated graphics (which of one you are probably seeing right about NOW!)
You should have seen a crumpled piece of note paper, unfold and display sales text somewhere near the lower left of your screen.
That animation then calls a full page new browser window that should show you the sales page for the plugin.
This is all done from within the WordPress plugin and by adding a shortcode on this post. Continue reading →
I started thinking about just “What is Internet Marketing (IM)?” the other day and man… I had a very hard time defining a defined, simple, one sentence explanation of what IM actually is.
You see, I see Internet Marketing as more like a huge container… a wrapper… rather than a defined object or “thing”.
And that is where the “flavors” of Internet Marketing analogy comes in. Maybe we can look at Internet Marketing like an ice-cream shop or candy shop and then view all of the different business models as “flavors” of ice-cream which is found inside the ice-cream shop walls. Continue reading →
