Make Your Content Pre-Sell from SBI - Reviewed

In the SBI Master's Course, the free e-book Make Your Content Pre-Sell (MYCPS) is actually the book I've just completed reading. So, to correct my previous post, I will now begin reading the SBI Action Guide.

The MYCPS course will be useful to anyone planning on building a website as well as anyone who has an existing website.

Some of the topics that are covered in this course include:

~Points on writing to develop a friendly tone in your website content.
~Discussions on the elements that truly make a difference in your sites look and feel.
~Tools for developing the voice and tone of your site.
~Web page layout pointers, including discussion on fonts and color.
~Writing tips...from style to the mechanics of writing to pre-sell.
~Learning how to outline your site before trying to build your website.
~How to edit, polish and tighten your website content....before publishing your page!
~The importance of your sites homepage
~How E-zines work as a repeated pre-selling tool.
~How to integrate your affiliate offers without spoiling your pre-sell.
~The importance of copy writing your work...and how to.
~An outline on content page structure that makes the actual writing process easier.
~Finally, a wonderful summary of all the key points covered in the course.
(Complete with hotlinks back to the section in the book for each key point.)

In all honesty, I did find it easier reading with the Affiliate Master's Course, over this Make Your Content Pre-Sell course. I think the reason for this is that the MYCPS is more detailed, so there was more I had to absorb and concentrate on. That, in and of itself, has made me so glad that I have completed the course.

Keep in mind, these are all free e-books, so if you feel the content may be helpful, just click on the hot linked titles and you will be taken to the information page, along with the free download. On this last book, I found it fine to just read it from my computer and take notes where needed.

Good luck, and if you have any questions about any of this, please, do leave a comment and I'll be happy to answer with what I know!

The SBI Action Guide: My Next Step

Wow. Time flies, or at least in my world of blogging it does. Since my earlier post on Applying What Affiliate Masters Course Taught Me I've been continuing to read the reference material I'll be using with my website creation. Having just recently completed this step, I'm now venturing on with a quick study of the SBI Action Guide. Basically this is the guide that you receive when you buy your website package from SBI. Of course, the tools that come with the site aren't activated, but it's a good opportunity to see what to expect. Since I like to read, I chose the printed guide, but they do offer the SBI Action Guide Video for those who prefer to "see" the information.

As it stands now, I'm planning to purchase my website package no later than June 9th, 2009. Why then? As you can read about in one of my first blog posts: Auctions For Income, June 9th will mark the 1 year date of when I first began my fore into Internet Marketing. Having a goal is one thing, but having a bonafide reason for a particular date is very inspiring for me.

Here's to living life in the slow lane. It might be taking a while, but I'm still moving towards my goal of an honest way to make money online!
