"It all began back in November of 2001..."
I was completely unkown then, and for good reason - I hadn't done a single thing on the Internet.
But all that was about to change...
On November 30th of 2001, I launched my first issue of the "Webs Worth Watching" Newsletter, and never looked back. Each month I rounded up the best sites I could find and sent them out to my subscribers. So far these sites have included:
Free, bannerless webhosts to use when testing your new mini-sites and products (#1)
Tried and tested link trackers so you know which ads are pulling well, and which ones are not (#38 and #2)
Spy tools that are great for keeping tabs on the competition as well as the latest trends on the Internet (#5, #6, #75 and #82)
Incredibly low-cost voicemail services that can add an instant level of professionalism and trust to your online business (#9)
Free utilities that add spice and usability to your site (#11, #17, #26, #73 and #95)
And much much more...
And guess what?!
My subscribers absolutely loved it! Here's what some of them said...
"You provide a quality newsletter that is honest, open and valuable in content..."
I subscribe to hundreds of newsletters. Why? Because I look for value and content which I consider important to maximize my business. I end of deleting most of them or unsubscribing. Yours gets read. You provide a quality newsletter that is honest, open and valuable in content. Keep up the good work. its refreshing to get a newsletter that has your subscribers best interest at heart and you can quote me on this.
"Delete It? No Way..."
I enjoy your entire newsletter each issue. Out of all the newsletters I subscribe to, Site Sightings is always well worth reading because of the useful information you publish. Site Sightings helps me stay on top of the latest online news, products and services. Delete It? No Way... I might miss out on something!
Keep up the great job in 2003!
"You really care to send the very best..."
I love the newsletter. You always have sites worth checking out and you personalize the content we read. The very fact that you spend so much time to investigate the worth of the sites you present in the newsletter tells me you really care to "send the very best" :-) I took the time to give you this testimonial because you take the time to care about your readers.
Thanks for a great newsletter.
But that's not even the tip of the ice burg. I've also featured:
Step-by-step tutorial sites that generate FREE, personalized blueprints for starting an online business (#77)
Websites that allow you to look back in time and see the changes their competitors have made to their sites over the past months or years (#80)
Expired domain finders that have personally helped me locate thousands of dollars worth of high-quality domain names (#65 and #83)
FREE legal advice websites (You never know when these may come in handy, but they've already saved me $100s in legal fees.) (#59)
FREE website monitoring services that send you an email as soon as your website goes down. (This is a great way to keep tabs on your webhost.) (#19)
Email translation sites and accounts that enable you to communicate in any language (#13)
Completely FREE autoresponder services that also don't put those annoying ads at the bottom of your emails. (I used these when I first got started and they saved me a lot of cash.) (#10 and #46)
and there's still more that I don't have the space to go into here...
Then, starting in January after my 3rd or 4th issue, I began receving loads of requests for for access to my Archives. (Many were from new subscribers who couldn't stand not knowing what they had missed.) At first my plan was to put all my issues on a password protected page and charge $47 for access.
But then I got an even better idea...
I thought to myself, "Wouldn't it be easier if all my sites and articles from year 1 were bundled together in an ebook?" Of course it would?! Not only is an ebook more organized, it's also downloadable so you don't have to logon to the Internet everytime you want to read the Archives.
So with that decided, I compiled all the "Websites Worth Watching" and "From the Trenches" Tips from my newsletter and called it...
"99 Websites You Should Have Bookmarked...But Probably Don't"
(Plus 8 "From the Trenches Tips" Every Online Business Owner NEEDS to Read)
It's 41 pages of pure content, and like my newsletter there's no fluff or long boring articles - just the tools you need plus tried and tested quick-tips
"OK Ryan, I Simply MUST See These Sites. What's it Going to Cost Me?"
At this point you're probably asking yourself, "So how much is this report going to cost me?"
Well that's the good news...
At $47 (which is what I planned on charging for it all along), "99 Sites" would be a bargain. In fact, just one of the sites in the report could easily save you twice that much over the next few months.
But since I want this report to spread like wildfire, I'm going to price it so low that you'd be crazy not to at least take a look at it. How low? Well at $14.97, I think you'd agree that this is an offer too good to pass up.
But I'm not finished yet...
