What Is The Best Blog Color for a Successful Site?

Making money onlineWhat blog color should I choose for my new theme?

I have finally decided to take the plunge and change this blog to a Genesis Framework (I’ve already changed my detox blog) and am trying to decide on the best color for the new theme.

I have never really been happy with the color I have now. I never actually said to myself “I want a pink blog”!  I had seen some blogs that I liked and tried to get the same color which was more of a red with pinkish hues but it didn’t turn out quite like that.

Everyone seems to have a preference when it comes to the color of their clothes, their car, and their homes but what about the color of your blog?

When you set up your blog did you know exactly what color you wanted?  Did you do any research into it first?

Flirting With Danger With Single Opt-Ins!

I’ve always used double opt-in for my lists before but have decided to give single opt-in a try. When I first started in internet marketing with my health niche several years ago everyone was saying it was best to use double-opt-in. I signed up with Aweber’s auto-responder service for my list management and they seemed to be insisting on it.

Confessions Of A Coaching Course Junkie

I have to confess I’ve just joined Marc Milburn’s Online Wealth Blueprint coaching course. I was invited to a Webinar a couple of weeks ago which featured Marc, a successful UK  full-time internet marketer, with distinctive red hair!  I knew of him but not much about him and at the time I certainly didn’t know he did coaching.

The Webinar turned out to be a promotion for his coaching program. Well, they are all promoting something at the end of these Webinars aren’t they? It sounded so good and he was throwing in so many bonuses at such an incredible price (never to be repeated of course!) that I was immediately hooked. It was a no-brainer.
