I just received quite a shocking email that Stompernet have added Infusionsoft as the 11th tool to their arsenal of internet marketing tools.
For me it is a bit of a dilemma, as I have quite a love <> hate opinion about Infusionsoft
On the plus side
I love marketing tools that help magnify your ability to make money from existing leads and Infusionsoft is one of the best tools for tracking and segmenting email marketing campaigns (within affordable limits for most online marketers)Continue Reading
I have been ranting and raving about insecure viral Tell-A-Friend scripts for over a year, and it seemed like I was just talking to a brick wall.
Now in the space of just a week I have been able to highlight a solution based upon one of my own blog posts that uses a slightly ghetto, but K.I.S.S method to achieve extremely effective viral tell-a-friend functionality, and now I want to mention another more sophisticated solution.Continue Reading
Over the last few months there have been a number of changes within Stompernet that have caused lots of heated discussions around the blogosphere, Twitter and a number of forums.
Various documents have been passed around, promoted through contact forms including my own, and there was tons of speculation.Continue Reading

Could social news aggregators such as Digg, Techmeme & Technorati be sued for copyright infringement because the frequently used lead for a story often encompasses the core story?
Larger concerns will no doubt have their own team of lawyers, but do bloggers need Blogging Insurance?
The idea of specific insurance policies for bloggers, as a form of liability insurance to cover defamation cases has been around for some time.
It seems even Jason Calacanis at one time was thinking of entering the marketContinue Reading
In what seems to be an impartial report on the ePerks vs Vlad lawsuit, Mr Ron Cook, the lawyer representing Brabus Ventures, owners of ePerks, made the following highly controversial statements.
Clearly, his minions out there are rallying behind him [...] They are trying to live off the company and raise their blog ranking. It’s really disgusting.
Mr Cook, what is really disgusting is that a failed startup, ePerks, is now trying to somehow recover some or all of their initial investment by taking an innocent blogger to court.
The article also elaborates not only on the legal threat to Vlad, but also to Trace at Broker Science, who has already made his response.
He suggested that those taking part might be doing this for some alternative motive, purely for links.Continue Reading

For years I have been paying sales tax (VAT) on purchases I make online through services such as Clickbank. It is inconvenient but it is much easier for Clickbank to work this way then to have to monitor the location of a seller and buyer.
The general rules in the US, as far as I can determine is that if you have a business presence in a state, you have to pay tax there. This applies if you own your own servers in the sate, or if you have employees.
Thus it might be beneficial for me, living in Europe to only
Today is RSS Awareness Day, and as a solid 40% of my RSS subscribers use Google Reader, I thought I would take this opportunity to reach out to the Google Reader team.
I am someone who loves using RSS, but at the same time as a business owner I find RSS is not living up to its current billing.
Whilst I haven’t mentioned RSS day before on this blog, I have known about Daniel’s plans for a month, and I might have been the first one to suggest using a dedicated site to promote RSS Day. This avoids what might be looked on as purely an attempt at linkbait.Continue Reading
