Designing Websites From A Remote Island – The Inspiring Story Of Ian Usher

Today I wanted to write an article about Ian Usher, the reason for this is after watching a documentary on Channel 5 about him here in the UK there was a little something that caught my attention which I found inspiring. Well the whole story is inspiring, Ian is a big adventurer and I will get into the story shortly but there was one part that I wanted to focus on as the inspirational point of this article for the people who are maybe thinking that they cannot do things online very well or that there are plenty of obstacles preventing them from becoming a success. I have in the past discussed that success is different for many people, for some people bagging an ideal partner for marriage is a success, and for those then, I guess divorce is a sign of being a failure. Well in 2008 Ian Usher’s marriage dissolved and he was divorced, did he feel a failure? Had his world come to an end? At that time he might have felt it but in truth it was just the start of an incredible journey! Ian is English and originally from County Durham, as a child his parents took him and his brother on many foreign holidays and he developed a strong bug for travel, adventure and the outdoor life.

It followed Amazon with every high and low including the 98% drop in shares which lead to people being made redundant to the success of its Kindle and how it changed the way we interact with books. It also interview people here in the UK...

Today’s post is an extract from a book I am currently writing and I wanted to share some of the content here with you. Working at something new that is yet to be profitable can get very hard when the hours turn to days and the days turn to weeks and those weeks drag into months. The longer you go without money can really make life desperate and very hard. It is at that point when motivation starts to wean and a mixture of apathy and procrastination kicks in so today I am going to discuss a few methods...

Creating A FREE Landing Page Using Instapage.com

Today I wanted to put together a quick video introducing you to the excellent online software/service called Instapage. This software/service makes it easy for non techies and newbies to build great looking landing pages using pre created templates. This is a paid service but comes with a basic free service.  We are not affiliated with Instapage and we get no money from them if you do decide to take up one of their paid services but it isn’t the paid services that I wanted to tell you about. For small local offline businesses I think the free landing pages you can create with Instapage are great and could save you a lot of time and money. If you have a WordPress website then you can easily add your landing page to your website using their WordPress plugin. This plugin connects the two together nicely. If you are using one of several email marketing services like AWeber then you can connect them to the landing pages to start collecting email names and build that important email list. The system is a great tool to anyone who wants to start building an email list as part of the online side of their business. Watch the video below as I give you a quick look inside Instapage.com and show you how easily the templates can be edited. Creating A FREE Landing Page...
