I’m one of those people that love/hates Facebook. I pop in and go crazy for about a week and then I’m outta there for months on end. I just find social media frickin HARD!!
So I’m far too all over the place to keep up to date with my profile and I’m seriously neglectful of my pages which means I can probably never make money with Facebook, right? Well you would think so …
But then, Mark Thompson, an English Internet Marketer (whom I highly respect as one of the ‘ethical’ guys) released a program called Reverse Blogging.
Reverse Blogging works on a simple concept. Build and audience first and then create a blog.
We all know it’s always been the other way around and that doesn’t work out too well for most people. Blog traffic is hard to come by but Facebook traffic is not!
Given how easy it is to create an audience on Facebook, you can see how Reverse Blogging can work.
So never one to refuse a challenge, I bought in to Mark’s program and I’m currently working through all the amazing insights, training and advice inside the members area.
I still hate managing Facebook Pages!
There is, however, always a tool or a means to make doing what you hate easier and I found that tool in the form of a Facebook Post Automation script.
I bought rights to this script from a very cool developer because I figured if I need this with just a handful of pages to manage, how much does somebody with dozens of client pages or hundreds of their own need this!
Schedule Hundreds Of Images & Videos For Hundreds Of Pages
Look at this video to see how I scheduled 7 posts in about 2 minutes for just one of my pages.
FB Auto Postr – Free With Reverse Blogging
When you purchase Mark Thompson’s Reverse Blogging you get FB Auto Postr absolutely free
If Reverse Blogging is not for you, you can also buy FB Auto Postr right here for just $9!
Full and comprehensive instructions are included. It’s super easy to set up.
However you do need your own hosting and know how to upload a folder to your server but that’s pretty much it.
In no time, you can schedule hundreds of posts to hundreds of pages and go holiday in Honolulu knowing that your Facebook pages are being updated as you dodge sharks in 50 ft waves like a hero!

“Being badass is simply about finding the authentic ‘hero’ that is you. Sometimes you’ve got to look hard but it’s there in the most ordinary of situations. I’m currently in search of my own badassness and I’ve made a video to inspire you to find yours!”
One of the most difficult things for people working and selling online as solo-entrepreneurs is conveying personality in an authentic way and this is even more difficult when you don’t have an outgoing, extroverted personality to help you along the way.
Firstly, it’s far more challenging when communicating with the written word to really express who you are than it is when communicating face to face and video tends to makes us shy peeps even more awkward and self-conscious, which is why most of us hate being in front of the camera.
For me, finding my online voice and expressing my authentic self through it has very much been a work in progress. A two year journey in fact, that has been tied into a process of becoming self-aware and and getting over my fear of being judged (which is essentially what shyness is all about!)
Sure, I’ve come a long way from the ‘swaying like a nutcase’ and ‘blinking like a looney’ first video I ever made for an online audience but I still struggle to reveal my true personality through the camera and the written word.
For a long time, I believed I had to be what I thought people expected me to be … ‘safe and subdued’, which I figured translated into ‘reliable and trustworthy’ but in reality, meant ‘dull and boring’!
The reality is people expect you to be nothing other than yourself.
When I saw other people so obviously being themselves, I told myself that’s because they’re extroverts. I’m a socially awkward (verging on shy) introvert. That’s not for me.
Shy I may be but dull I”m not and so what comes next was probably inevitable!
Find Your ‘Badassness’
I had an epiphany. It came from an unusual channel.
A friend online started a Facebook Group called Legion of Badass. The mantra behind being badass is simple. You set out on a journey to find your true authentic self, celebrate it and bring it forward into the marketplace, to your customers and to your online presence.
And all this is done using the framework of Belief, Awareness, Direction, Action, System and Story.
It means looking at who you are and things you’ve done to find what uniquely makes you special and then framing those qualities into an actionable plan that can make you stand out in the marketplace.
Whether we know it or not (and most of us don’t), we’re all badass. Our badassness reveals itself to use in everyday life, we only need to open our eyes to see it. And that can be the hardest part, seeing it! Many of us tend to devalue ourselves and the small challenges we successfully (or unsuccessfully) face in daily life.
But it’s right in the centre of these moments that you’ll find your badassness!
Nobody else has your experiences and so nobody else can be YOU and that’s your competitive advantage.
Customers Value Authenticity
And so, revealing your true and authentic self is probably one of the most important things you need to do online.
In a space that is full of competing products and services you need to bring what’s special in you to your marketing mix. That means finding what’s unique and different about the person you are, what makes you stand out from everybody else and what makes people instantly recognize your online voice!
Like me, start to find the awesomeness in what you do and then document it.
In time, you’ll feel like you can climb mountains and your customers will want to climb those mountains with you.
Have you ever felt yourself getting sleepy on the job? I bet you have! And of course, if you’re like me, you’ll likely have tried to snap yourself out of your drowsy spell by straightening up, taking a deep breath and focusing with intent on the task you almost nodded off doing!
Somehow, there’s some kind of ‘employee’ guilt associated with being tired on the job, even if we’re working for ourselves. The ‘boss’ inside each of us demands we conform to the culture of productivity that turns our crazy world around.
That means being alert, being productive and definitely not napping!
But in fact, recent studies have shown that 30% of workers either fall asleep or become very sleepy at work, with 65% experiencing performance issues. While some employers are embracing the need to rejuvenate on the job, most are not so enlightened.
Well, let me tell you a little secret that those employes don’t know!
Naps are good for business and there’s science to prove it!
New information that enters our brain needs to be consolidated into long-term memory or else we simply forget it. This consolidation happens when we sleep.
But here’s what’s really important and why napping is good for creativity and productivity. When new information enters the brain it is associated with all of the other information we have accumulated and stored there. New connections are formed between all the old stuff we know and the new stuff we’ve just processed.
From here some our best and most original ideas are formed.
While the image of a person jumping out of bed and grabbing a notepad to jot down their latest, greatest idea is something of a cliche, the fact remains that we are doing some of our best work while we are asleep.
And have you ever wondered why babies sleep so much? You can bet that the amount of new information to be processed during our early years requires plenty of down time!
However, in our productivity driven, consumption obsessed world sleep is regarded as a weakness. We admire those who can ‘survive’ on 4 hours a night. We consider anybody falling asleep at the 2pm meeting not tired, but lazy.
Because of the negative associations with sleep it will be some time before we’ll see employers listen to the science and provide ‘nap rooms’ for employees. If only they knew how it would improve business!
For those of us lucky enough to be our own bosses and to have the luxury of working at home, the nap room is only a few steps away. It’s time you embraced your mid-morning sleepiness and stopped feeling guilty for taking 30 minutes to recharge your batteries.
After all, you may not be aware of it, but you’re working!

Setting Up A Membership Site Is A Pain In the Butt
Membership sites are pretty complicated to set up, right? If you’ve tried, you know the deal!
I’ve been creating membership sites for quite some time now for my own products and I’ve tried every script and plugin/theme combo out there.
Nothing did just what I wanted and if it did, it looked generic and ugly ( you must know the Optimize press/Wishlist combo which is not just ugly but darn expensive too at $594! )
I now use a setup that works like a dream and guess what … ?
You never will, so I’ll tell you ..
I use a free plugin called s2Member.
Now, I wish I could tell you that setting up a profitable membership site with s2member is a walk in the park. I guess it can be if you don’t want any bells and whistles or something special for your members. Me, I like to create pretty and user-friendly websites with great functionality.
So I’ve spent 6 months of trial and error putting together the perfect configuration of plugins and settings to create a professional membership site that does exactly what I need.
Now I can create membership sites in minutes simply by cloning my configuration!

Last week, I posted the dudette version of this very cool hispter dude.
The girl was pretty cool on her own but teamed up these guys could be very useful. I don’t have to tell you that you can use these characters in presentations, on book covers, timeline covers, banner and so much more.
Like the girl, the guy version has 8 poses to work with. The files are layered PSD files, all vector shapes so they’ll scale to whatever size you need them to be.
You are welcome to use these in your personal projects or projects for clients.
So what do you think about Gmail’s inbox tabs? Scary stuff for marketers, right?
It’s difficult enough to get emails opened when they are in full view, but now there’s an additional hurdle; hoping your customer will bother to look inside the Promotions tabs. I mean, seriously, who willingly goes looking for spam?
So with such dramatic changes to how your emails are being received, you’re probably imagining doomsday stats of 0.1% open rates right now.
(If that’s your current open rate … … awkward silence!).
I create products and do cool stuff with graphics. When I'm not doing that I write some very weird poetry and draw some even weirder pictures. I adore pugs, in an insane kind of way and I share my office with one everyday. I look after my four crazy kids aged between 14 and 22 and I'm lucky enough do be able to do all this while working online full time from home. Life rocks!
