Create Professional PDF's For Free!

Welcome Back, Friend!

Hope your day goes well! Today's posting is about
helping you create your own e-products to sell -
e-books in PDF format to be precise...

More and more, PDF is becoming the format of choice
for e-book authors - there are a number of advantages
to PDFs, the most important being that they can be
viewed on both PCs and Macs and that the formating
is always the same, regardless of the computer they're
viewed on.

But until now, software cost has driven new authors
and marketers to the .exe format. Professional PDF
software is expensive, while programs like
Jimmy D.
EbookCreator have all the professional
features anyone could want and sells for about $20.

But now that's changed, with the release of
Louis Allport's
How To Create Professional PDFs For Free'. This
great new video e-book uses 30 onscreen videos to
walk you through every step to creating your very own
PDFs with active links and document security.

And best of all, 3 of the four tools he demonstrates are
free - while the fourth is free only with hosting at
3rd Sphere ($91 otherwise). So now the world of PDF
publishing is within the reach of ALL authors and
Internet marketers!

Take a minute & check out this valuable new tool:

How To Create Professional PDFs For Free

One caveat: It's ironic, but the videos only work on PCs,

so while the PDFs can be opened on any computer, the
step-by-step how-to videos cannot be viewed on a Mac.

Have a great weekend, and don't forget our Appreciation Sale
Remember, it's all over on Saturday, May 7th!

All the best,

Doug Champigny,
Welland, ON, Canada.

Video E-Books Special...

Welcome Back!

How's it going today? Sorry this post is a little later
than usual, but I think you'll like the reason...

Do you know who Louis Allport is? Louis is one of
the major players online, and at the forefront of using
online videos delivered through e-books. He's the
author of our '10 Easy Steps to a Google-Friendly
Website' and the '5 Steps to Explode your Opt-in List'
video e-books we sell.

Well, we just got the rights to two more of his
video e-books, 'How to Create Professional PDFs for
Free' and '7 Fast Ways to Get Great Links to Your
Website.' You can see why we went for it - the four
together make an incredible package, 71 videos to
help you get better search engine rankings,
build your opt-in list and create your own

These videos are for PC only - sorry, no Mac version.
They take you step by step through the entire process,
leaving no room for doubt.

And therein lay our quandry - it makes sense to
bundle them together for you, but some already have
one or two of them, and some can't afford all four.
And Teri insisted that I find some way around that, to
show how much we appreciate you and our other
subscribers & blog visitors.

That's why this is a little late - I had to create a new
page for this, because I want you to be able to take
advantage of it, but not the general surfing public. They
can continue to pay full price, thank you very much! ;)

So here's what we came up with - you can get all 4 e-books
for less than the price of 2, and scoop up some great bonuses
at the same time - including one tool so new it's not even on
our site yet!

Check out the page - you'll be amazed! Even if you already
have all 4 e-books it's worth it for the bonuses alone! In fact,
just the first two bonuses resell for more than the package price!
And you get Master Resell Rights to all 4 e-books & two of
the bonuses - plus a ton of other resell rights products from the
3rd and 4th bonuses. That's how much we value you and
appreciate your taking the time to read our postings!

Check it out right now - it's only there until next Saturday,
May 7th - and the initial price goes up Monday night, so be
sure to get it this weekend!

Have a super weekend - I'll talk to you next week!

All the best,
Doug Champigny

Welland, ON, Canada.

PS - Remember - you get the 4 video e-books and
4 great bonuses all in one - but the current price is only
good til Monday night, and the entire offer disappears by
next weekend! And I never kid about these things -if you've
been to lately you
saw that the introductory pricing is gone - just as I said it
would. So don't miss this one - it won't be repeated!

Enjoy! -DC

List-Building through Joint Ventures

Welcome Back!

In the last 6 or 7 months you've seen me involved in a number of Joint Ventures - Gary Huynh's 7 Days of Autumn, the 117 Christmas Gifts promo, our own, Cody Moya's RRG, The List Machine, etc. Why? Because we gain an average 1,000 new readers from each, swelling our opt-in list with a constant stream of new signups, in addition to those we get from our regular efforts - e-books, articles, freebies, sales, etc.

And we turn down more JV's than we go into - either because we're too busy at that point (usually) or we just can't see the value to that particular event (less often). We've achieved our best results from those with 8 - 12 partners - fewer and there's not enough momentum, more and the people get barraged with too many e-zines and offers and leave all the lists too soon to really know which ones offer quality content and which don't.

That's all well and fine for us - Teri & I are well known online, have 14 sites and various productive lists, backed by a successful track record of JVs with some of the biggest names online. So JV partners approach us - and already know who we are if we approach them.

But what about those just starting out, or with an opt-in list of only 1,000 or 2,000? Many, many marketers find that even getting 50 new opt-in subscribers a month is tough - possibly impossible, because their sites aren't busy enough yet. What about you? Have you been involved in any Joint Ventures yet?

So what's a marketer to do? First, watch for announcements about big giveaway JV's launching, especially the Christmas ones - often these require no set size of opt-in list from the partners, just that they have something of value you can give away. Some of the resell rights products you've bought may allow you to give them away, or you can grab one like 10 Steps To Google-Friendly Web Sites.

But Christmas is still 8 months away as I write this. So how do you get it all started before that? Until now, you had to be a programmer or hire one, set up the coding to allow co-registration opt-ins, then approach others with similar web site traffic/opt-in list sizes.

You remember co-reg, right? That's where an opt-in form presents 4 - 12 e-zines to sign up for all at once. Think of Gary Baker's leads, or the ListInferno and OptInStorm programs. Even our is a variation of that principal.

So even if you're current list is 200 or 300 strong, you can jumpstart your opt-in list building by following this pattern:
1) Contact a number of other sites/lists that are about the same size, preferrably in a related field to yours.
2) When you get 8 - 10 interested participants, set up a database with their e-zine title, info and autoresponder signup address.
3) Set up an opt-in list signup form that rotates which e-zines are shown each time, so that each visitor can choose from 4 or 5 of the e-zines in their signup box.
4) Give each partner a copy of the coding for the form to place in a conspicuous spot on their site - usually top-right, just under the header graphic.

Now, when people opt-in at any of the sites, most will pick one or two of the other lists to join as well, and everybody can end up with more incoming subscribers. It's a great win-win for everybody, as long as there's a level playing field - all partners having roughly the same traffic.

Finding and contacting the other sites is easy - search for your keywords at Google, then start contacting the sites from Page 5 of the results on through. (those in the first 4 pages are probably getting more traffic, so they'd be less receptive on average)

So now the question becomes how to set it all up in the first place. It's definitely worth the effort - once the partners all have the forms in place, it's true set and forget technology - without any of you doing anything extra, the results just keep mounting. But it DOES take some effort to put it in place.

There is hope though... Remember my buddy Mike Steup from the site? Mike's come up with new software to help you out quite a bit - you can use it to simply add an opt-in form to your own site, put together the type of form discussed above, and more - it even has a list of resources to help find your potential JV partners! See JVBuddy at

Of course, I'm going to show you how to make this tool a no-net-cost resource as well, since that's one of the main things I'm known for. First, get your own copy of the program here:

Now, join the affiliate program to refer it to others:
(Do them in that order - you can't buy your own copy through your own affiliate link)

Then, when you approach other e-zine publishers about joining your joint venture, let them know you're using JVBuddy and add your link. This lets them know the event is being professionally run, and you may even pick up the odd commission from those not joining your JV.

If you have one or more really busy sites, offer to provide co-reg leads for a fee. You could contract with 4 or 5 smaller e-zines to provide them signups from your site, while still getting the signups for your own on that same form.

Either way, it shouldn't take long at all for JVBuddy to pay for itself - leaving you with yet another no-net-cost tool that will contiune to build your opt-in list for years to come! Grab this one right now...

Have a super week - Teri & I are hoping to get some blading in again this week, if the rain ever stops. Time for my workout, so I'll talk to you later in the week, if I don't see you in the Warriors Forum or the List Machine Forum in the meantime!

All the best,
