Facebook has come out with yet another API and we're (yet again) the better for it. The newest API is called the Payments Reporting API and it's available immediately. What it does is let you access daily transactional data which is a great improvement over the old way of receiving the data via e-mail not the best way of getting important information. This is why Facebook says this way is...  Read More

At noon London time on June 13, 2012, ICANN , the organization that oversees, among other things, the whole domain name system, will reveal the list of who is going after the new domain extensions and what those extensions are.

Facebook has announced that they've gotten rid of their old FBML pages so if you have any of those pages on Facebook then you're in for a big surprise next time you go look at your page.

Marketing is really nothing more than communicating the value of you, your products and services, and your company to your prospects in the most effective (and efficient) way you can so that they will take the action you want them to take. Usually there is a series, maybe a long series, of actions you need your prospect to take to get to how you are defining "success". Each of those actions...  Read More

The importance of list building is legend but after you've convinced someone to subscribe to your list, then what? You want to build a relationship with your subscribers and engage them so they will remain a subscriber and come to know, like and trust you. Sounds good but it also sounds like a lot of work.

Not long ago one of the people I really respect, master copywriter Michel Fortin, told me about a free resource he uses to help automate certain tasks (even automate reminders) and I've fallen in love with it. It's called If-This-Then-That and the concept is very simple, if some event happens then do something. So there is a trigger event -- the THIS portion -- and a action event -- the THAT...  Read More

This was a frustrating little thing and took me longer than it should so I thought I'd share it with you so if you or your coder/programmer had to do the same thing you wouldn't waste the time and effort that I did. I needed to get the original size of some images on a Web page but I didn't have control over the page so couldn't guarantee that all images were the actual size. To get the height...  Read More
