| WHY:   Price rising to $27 tomorrow morning!
| Get in while it's at the current price....

It's Thursday mornin' and I am feelin' mighty fine
I am.  How are you today?
More importantly, what are you doing to build your
business this Valentine's Day?  Remember, this is
a day in which folks buy buy buy, and NOTHING
says "Love" like Tumblr Crusher!

Well, that's the facts for *me* - you can probably
use the same idea when you promote to your lists

But anywhos...Valentine's Day.
On one of my many pages, I started a contest
yesterday - submit your best picture from within
the niche, and we'll vote on it today!
Silly Barbara - Barbara got inundated with 50+
pictures!  'Taint no way at all I would be able to
categorize 'em and let people vote on 'em.
So!  This morning, I came up with the idea...
instead of ME picking the photos, why not
let the power of the community do  that instead?
I'll keep you posted!       But it's a great example
of how desperation really does make you
think outside the box.  
Got lots to share but first!
| oOo ==> Awwwwww!

and onto today!

It's my 2nd viral pix of:

Can you guess what it is?  HINT-
It's Legendary!!  :)
And did you see:
You're probably aware that sometimes, it's really
difficult to get your visitors' mind on buying
But what that opportunity was immediately
available in a tasteful way?
| oOo ==> Shows visitors discounts too!
Honestly, just see that demo....it's simple,
gentle, grabs attention and is easily closed
by the visitor too!
As you might konw, I'm heavily teaching myself
the art of niching with Amazon....and have all of
George's other grand plugins.  It makes monetizing
sites that much easier.....
How?  Like this!
1) It makes you more money on autopilot: You add the plugin to your blog ONCE and the search bar will continue working for you forever, sending Amazon commissions your way. The search results in the bar will also contain a 90-day-cookie (the default Amazon cookie only lasts 24 hours). This means that you can make money from the same visitor even if they purchase up to 3 months later!

2) It adds value to your blog: The plugin will add a really cool search bar that allows your visitors to "custom search" Amazon - without leaving your site! Your visitors can find what they want quickly, right from your site. They can search for items that are sold at a specific discount range (for example, 1-20%). Hey, we all love a great deal! PLUS, your visitors will absolutely LOVE "playing" with this search bar - it can become pretty addictive ;-)

3) It's simple and easy to use: All the settings can be accessed from a single screen. The functions are intuitive and don't need any lengthy "user manuals" (that nobody likes to read anyway). Each function has a "help" link next to it that provides some advice for that function. But many customers tell us that they don't even need to open the help links, because it's so obvious how each function works...
So if further monetization is of interest to you....

Don't forget yesterdays:

Here's the 3rd example!


Talk about a way to get a special deal in front
of your audience on FB, Pinterest, Tumblr and the like!

I made that image with the Drag and Drop goodness
of the OTO upsell software.

Let's go a wee bit beyond the usual MMO
mindset, aye?

One thing I learned with my 56K fanpage
is that images that look like shareable Memes....
well, they get *shared*.

So if you advertise your special that way, and write
all the goodness in the description, 
*that* gets shared as well!

So not only does your picture get shared...
Your SALE link gets shared too!
What's the best way to do that?

Catch the reader's eye of course!


What if....

What if.


You  want to add a call-to-action to ensure
your picture gets shared? 

Let's see that image again:

Notice the different fonts?

Notice the Call to Action button?

It's ALL customizable AND.....

| oOo ==> It's ALL Drag and Drop!
So simple.
The front end of the product is how to
build insanely viral FB pages.  
And if you DON'T want trends.....

Think instead:  PASSION.

The FB techniques Don shares is applicable
to passion pages *too*!
That picture I shared on my moose page.

See how many likes are on that page?

Learned it all from Don.
So to recap:
| oOo ==> Insanely Viral!

And speaking of FB:

I wanted to get
this out to you asap:
| oOo ==> NEW!  FB Apps Ninja Creator
See, I'm about to test it out on my moose
page, but didn't want you to miss out on the
pricing, as it's DIMESALE but rising rapidly.
What I find compelling, as I now have a 55K 
page and a 5K page, is the ability to create
8 types of apps (you can see them on the sales page):
Fan Page, Squeeze Page, Gate Page Tab Applications Demo
Viral Stand Alone Apps DEMO Video
And it applies to:
* Affiliate Marketing
* Offline
* Fiverr
Like  I said, I'm going to test it out today,
but did want to alert you to it.
| oOo ==> 8 in 1!


Want a really cool way to increase your offline
Ever want to truly stand out from other business
consultants?  Well, what *if* (what if, mind you)
what IF.... you could PROVE you could double
the size of their business?
| oOo ==> Very simple yet extremely powerful

This is a quick, actionable 23 page PDF that takes
you by the hand and shows you how to target
a hyper-focused group of potential customers....
and then close them for a series of offline services.
I reviewed it myself and love the.... *smartness*
of it all.
So if you'd like actual offline proven methods that *work*:
