Just because Aweber is popular, it is not necessarily the best email marketing service out there. After being a loyal customer for over 3 years, I finally decided to change my service provider.
Email Marketing Service - Switched From Aweber To GetResponse - Reasons For The Switch Explained
The reason I signed up with Aweber is not that I knew a lot about email marketing. It wasn’t because I knew a whole lot about different companies either. I chose Aweber for my email marketing needs because it was the service so many online marketers were using and recommending.

People told me that Aweber was the “gold standard” in email marketing. And it worked. I was impressed and convinced!

Some of the most successful bloggers started blogging as a hobby. Some of them wanted to document an important phase of their lives. Others wanted to share adventures from travel to business to major life events.
Success demands you have your own products as a blogger
Many started simply to teach others. The point is that most successful bloggers didn’t get into blogging for money. It’s hard to believe that some multi-million dollar revenue blogs started out as small side projects.

It doesn’t happen overnight. I have interviewed many very successful bloggers and several of them shared that the first couple of years were a lot of work with little reward. Their sites have received few visitors if any during the first few months, but they kept writing and churning out content.

One of the issues people say they started to notice was the missed schedule errors since WordPress version 3.5. A lot of people have experienced this error after they implemented W3 Total Cache plugin.

I am not such a huge fan of having too many plugins on a WordPress installation. However, there are times I can’t avoid adding a plugin or two for a feature that gets my attention!

Must Have WordPress Plugins - Some For Everyone And Some For Multi-Author Blogs

At other times, I come across some awesome plugins because my clients need them. I am not suggesting that you install all of the plugins I suggest. However, if you need a feature that one of these WordPress plugins offer, these are definitely a great choice!

I am  not going to write a whole lot about these WordPress plugins because their functionalities are so intuitive, and they are so lightweight, that you don’t need to go through too many hoops to get them working for you.

Many people ask how did I start making money online and if I could help. I wanted to share some of my experiences while building my online business and to share how I did  it.
Starting Business Online-Businessman-Cutting-Ribbon
I have been an online marketer for at least 5 years now with a thriving web development business, a managed WordPress hosting business, and social media marketing services business. Today, I do small-to-large scale website design/development projects for professionals and companies with an offshore development center in India.

It amazes many people when I say that I didn’t know the difference between a static web page and a blog post. I was already making a six figure income through my profession which had nothing to do with online marketing or websites.

Because I have been using this plugin for all these years and I still love it to death, Kumar asked me if I wouldn’t mind sharing with his readers why I think this is absolutely the best plugin around and what you might not know about what it can do.

Why Some People Don’t Like CommentLuv

If you have a WordPress blog and are using CommentLuv then people want to comment on your blog to get a dofollow link.

One of Google’s 200 requirements for ranking your site are building backlinks.

Did you know that blogging is the best way to build your brand identity? It helps you, not just in reaching out to a maximum number of people, but it is also the most effective way to get your message out to the world.
Essential steps to find time for blogging especially for busy people
Everybody I talk to understands the value of blogging. But, the biggest challenge people have is finding time to actually do it.

Starting a blog is one thing; staying consistent, and continuing to blog regularly, is another. That is where most people give up. In fact, I have seen blogs with good community fade away because the blogger couldn’t keep up.

However, these people seem to have done their homework before talking to me. So, they asked, “How about going for managed WordPress hosting offered by BlueHost?”
