To Hell with Auto Blogging - Digi Traffic Multiplier is Fantastic!


Yesterday we invested in a couple of pieces of new software one which is a WordPress Plugin called Digi Traffic Multiplier and we must confess it works fantastically!


You can see for yourself what we have done with it on our new DSL web site that we have not yet totally completed and it is working its magic already :-)


We made the category and the plugin made the post :-) It was extremely simple to setup and comes with extreme detailed video instructions - in our opinion anyone whom can log into thier Wordpress Back Office can install and use it.


Rather then go into a long explanation of the software here, what it does, and how it works ..... visit the authors web site here where you can view a video, get a complete description, and until March 8th get a whopping 66% OFF the regular price.

Inactive is no longer neutral?


In response to the Get Response Article "Inactive is no longer neutral" and coming from what I believe is a position of authority and experience being CEO of more then one successful ISP since 1996 to present, I feel it is my duty to address many of the comments made by author of the article described above.


(My Comment is currently waiting moderation ..... lol)


Typical of "everything seems backwards" relevant to today's modern man, more so with corporations, and even worse with Government - most seem to not claim responsibility for their actions and their responsibilities - always trying to blame someone or something else.


The first subject I will address from the article is and I quote "We’re hearing it at industry events and on blogs, everywhere the experts are talking about trends."


Are these the same experts whom told us about how to raise our children but do not have any? or similar experts like Al Gore on Global Warming perhaps? Timothy Geithner on Taxes? Bernanke on the Economy?


The term "expert" is obviously used too loosely, obviously in many cases without real world qualification, and if you want to know the truth just follow the money.


The next subject I will address from the article claims the following and I quote "Repeated mailings to inactive mailboxes are frowned upon by many ISPs."


Well I agree and that is good - but then if the mailbox is inactive why hasn't the ISP burned that mailbox? It is in their power to do so not ours.


Why would the ISP blame the mailer when clearly it is the Client or the ISP themselves that is directly responsible for the mailbox by either the client not using it or the ISP not burning it? They have the inactive mailbox, not the mailer - they said so themselves didn't they?


In this example the ISP is clearly trying to put the blame on the mailer rather then where the responsibility clearly and undeniably belongs - on the MailBox OWNER and the ISP.


Next - "They consider it bad email marketing practice at best, spamming at worst."


I consider it trying to shuck responsibility for not taking out the inactive mailboxes and trying to blame someone else.


Spamming? How can it be spam if it is double opt-in?


and I quote "Permission based email is the key to success in Email Marketing."


Absolutely true - then how could it be spam if they gave their permission via double opt-in?


Once again the responsibility of the bounces and the inactive mailboxes are clearly and undeniably on the mailbox owner and ISP.


The way I see it - for a real world example is in our Free Gifts Giveaway Events - the subscriber is authorizing via double optin to receive marketer emails in exchange for a report, software, or some other legal product or service absolutely free - but they themselves submitting an inactive mailbox to receive said item is at minimum theft and at worst fraud with the ISP facilitating the fraud.


Last but not least - how does one know the "Open Rate" of the people receiving the Text Version of the sent email or the people whom block imaging from there email? THEY DO NOT KNOW!


In general the article has some very good ways to recapture the attention of subscribers, but I totally disagree with several of the concepts which are clearly skewed and who's to blame as indicated above from the qualified positions of being both an ISP CEO and having an email marketing team.


It is further my position that bounces, complaints, and unsubscribes self clean the list .....


Bounces can be for many reasons to include full mailboxes, inactive mailboxes, fraudulent email addresses or mistyped email addresses etc.


Unsubscribes show the unsubscribed is no longer interested in the subject, content, or hearing from the mailer.


Complaints show several possibilities to include the person "forgot" they subscribed, didn't like the content of the particular newsletter or email, or just do not want to hear from mailer anymore.


One of the greatest Sales Managers of all time told me - Dr. Phil Proctor - "if you are not getting any complaints you are not getting market penetration because there is always a complainer out there even if there is nothing to complain about."


As for the ISP's, if you got inactive mailboxes then BURN THEM - this is your problem and your clients problem.


Once burned the email address will be removed from my list because it bounced.


My list size decreases reducing the size of my list and possibly the fee my list host gets reducing their revenue and saving us money :-) Works for me :-)


Case closed problem solved.

You won't believe what Tim Geithner said today

Federal Reserve President breaks rank: This is the greatest risk to the U.S. economy

Global energy watchdog: This is 2008 all over again

From Bloomberg:
U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said the economic recovery has put the world on a better footing to withstand the increase in oil prices caused by turmoil in the Middle East.

"The economy is in a much stronger position to handle" rising oil prices, Geithner said today during a Bloomberg Breakfast in Washington. "Central banks have a lot of experience in managing these things."

Political turmoil in Libya, holder of Africa's largest oil reserves, will add "stagflationary winds" to the global economy, according to Mohamed El-Erian, chief executive officer at Pacific Investment Management Co. Protests in Libya pose more "systemic" risk to the global economy than the upheaval in Egypt and Tunisia, El-Erian said in a Bloomberg Television interview yesterday ...
From Bloomberg:
Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City President Thomas Hoenig said U.S. regulators should avert another crisis by breaking up large financial institutions that pose a threat "to our capitalistic system."

"I am convinced that the existence of too-big-to-fail financial institutions poses the greatest risk to the U.S. economy," Hoenig said today in a speech in Washington. "They must be broken up. We must not allow organizations operating under the safety net to pursue high-risk activities and we cannot let large organizations put our financial system at risk."

Hoenig, the lone dissenter from every Fed meeting in 2010, has argued that the most sweeping overhaul of U.S. financial regulation since the Great Depression won't prevent the largest banks from taking ...
From Pragmatic Capitalism:

Some analysts have estimated that the breaking point for oil is much higher than today's prices. However, Nobuo Tanaka, executive director of the International Energy Agency says current prices are much closer to causing serious economic decline than most assume.

In an interview with CNBC this morning Tanaka says supplies are plentiful. However, Libya will cause disruptions in the near-term. Tanaka says $100 oil is not sustainable and will contribute negatively to the economy and could actually cause a repeat of 2008:

"If the $100 barrel is continued in 2011 the burden of oil to the global economy is as bad as 2008 and remember – 2008 was the crisis year… It is really serious today…
