I want the truth shares an abundance of free tools that she has used while trying to get an "online income" off the ground.


Amber shares what tools she used both online and offline to build her Shaklee home business.


Frugal Momma shares an expensive mistake as well gives some of best free resources for learning about internet marketing.

A Girl Gotta Spa shares the following

For my Country Bunny Bath & Body business I have bought a variety of items
from Vista Print. They always have some great deals each month. I've
ordered business cards, business card magnets, notecards that I design
with my rep. logo and glossy postcards. I've been able to get them all for
free and only had to pay for shipping. Directly from Country Bunny I buy
samples, catalogs, opportunity brochures and direct mailers. I also buy
advertising on websites and blogs.

I've also created an account with Constant Contact for my monthly
newsletter. The first 90 days were free and then it is $15 a month. I am
able to upload photos, create links, use different templates, see which
customers open the newsletter and where they are clicking. It's a
fantastic tool and definitely worth the money.

For my blogs, I have signed up with affiliates that would be appropriate
for my readership. I have also signed up with various advertising programs
to implement on my blogs. My spa blog is more business-like with articles
regarding skin care and beauty, as well as, product reviews and answering
readers questions. The past few months have shown an increase in readers
buying Country Bunny products due to my blog.

To learn for free I often go to Problogger.com and Lip-Sticking.com. I am
also part of some Ryze networks that offer tips on marketing.

Biker Momma blog mentioned on TV

I'm just tickled pink this morning! My blog was featured (for all of 30 seconds, but I'm not complaining ) on Toronto's big morning show, Breakfast Television! They had asked people to submit their blogs, so I did. They picked three or four out of all the submissions they received and showed our blogs up on their screens. The others were mostly pictures, but they actually read from one of my entries because one of the hosts had ranted about the same topic a few days ago. Anyhow, I was just so thrilled, I had to share

Pinging your blog

Pingoat is a service that pings or notifies a number of services that keep track of weblogs and publish them. By pinging, you let the services know that your blog has been updated and hence, they crawl and index your site, publishing your blog contents, thus increasing your blog's popularity.

A 'Ping' is a basic Internet program that lets you verify that a particular Internet address exists and can accept requests. The verb ping means the act of using the ping utility or command.

Pinging in the blog world means different, but still similar. There are certain services that scans blog regulary for updates and publishes the recently updated blogs (for an example). So once you've updated your blog, you should let such a service know that you have your blog has peen updated. for this, you send a PING to the service. Most of the blog software have the ability to ping on their own. But pinging a dozen such services could be time consuming.

A blog ping is just a piece of text, in simple words. It'll contain your blog name and the url. It is usually prepared in the XML format. The servers that accept ping have special programs for accepting and processing these 'XML pings'.
