Four Essential Things Your Homepage Should Have

The one thing I keep telling my clients is that website shouldn’t only be pretty; that should come secondary. The main objective of websites should be to attract visitors, keep them and ultimately turn them into clients and customers. In short, your website should convert to leads, not just be a place where people “ooh” and “aah” at the beauty of it, leave and then promptly forget about it.

5 Things I Do in The Mornings That Help Me Retain My Sanity As a Solo Entrepreneur

I’ve been running this little business of mine solo for 3 years now and it could be a wonder how I managed to keep my sanity.

For the past year I’ve been hearing a lot about Leadpages from bloggers I read regularly and how it’s awesome for growing your email list and I’ve been wanting to try it out but unfortunately, I couldn’t see a sign up for a “30-day free trial” link on their website. I resigned myself to not having the chance to try it out until I’m ready to invest in the $37 a month fee…until a few days ago.

While fooling around productively on the internet (haha!), I discovered a way to try out Leadpages for free (almost) for 30-days and it’s such a brilliant tactic on Leadpages’ part, I must say I’m impressed. Anyway, let me go right into it and show you how so you too can try it out if you’ve been wanting to for ages like me:
