Any way to make the sidebar bigger? It's so small on Hayden.

These are actually greater than you think. And every one of these "bad" informercials each generated tens -- if not hundreds -- of millions of dollars.

This guy's problem is he thinks he knows more than the sharks. Even if he is, he doesn't have the experience, connections, or money that the sharks do. The only rule of shark tank is you take the best deal offered and run with it. These sharks know what to do, so let them do it.

I was thinking of getting a LifeSpan TR-1200 with a Jarvis top. Mainly due to the fact the Jarvis can adjust to a seated position. Also, the Jarvis is around 120 lbs, so I can move it around easier when I want to sit down.

Have you had any experience with the Jarvis? The LifeSpan top looks good, but it doesn't adjust down as far as I'd like it to.

This is much harder to use than I thought. I hope I can get used to it.

So after 7 days, they'll no longer have access to the members area?

This is huge.
Okay, this is huge.Some people may shrug this off, but not me.Why? Because for years I've offered and sold copywriting services for Amazon product sellers.The ecommerce-based opportunities that exist on Amazon are unlike any other website. I've seen behind the scenes of what's possible with selling on Amazon firsthand, so I know the potential here.And now with the introduction of Amazon Home Services, there will soon be at least double the amount...

Great article about autoresponders.

Marketers, especially those with longer sales cycles, often elect to call an email opt-in a conversion. Let’s face it, most of your email subscribers don’t give you a lot of their time.

Introduction
Chances are you don't know what a copywriter is, so let me tell you: a copywriter uses words to sell a product or service.

So that's what I do; I use persuasion, psychology, and the latest technology to make sales... and I have a blast doing it.

How To Find Writers For Your Blog
www.digitalmarketer.com

The minute we started thinking of our blogs as media publications, we started down the path of creating VERY lucrative blogs.

I set up an appointment for my delivery 3 days in advance. The only available times were 1-6 pm, so I said, "Sure." At the time of this writing, it's been 24 hours since that scheduled time and I haven't received my delivery yet. Nor have I received a call explaining why not. I've called and emailed UPS to try and sort things out, but that hasn't worked. They representatives just forward me to other places. Or they say they'll forward the concern to someone else. Nothing's resulted from that yet. It seems like UPS Freight is not the same as UPS, so your SOL when it comes to getting help. I've already taken a day off of work to be home for my package (it's 170 lbs and around $1,000). Now I'm taking a second day off. At $250 an hour (what I bill), UPS Freight is costing me a ton of money. More money in shipping than I paid for my product. I understand if there's been a delay or a mistake. I don't understand why I haven't heard why yet. Just a short email would go a long way. It's not okay to keep customers in the dark like this, especially when you request to have someone available during a time that you don't show up on. [update - 1 week later] Still no delivery or phone call explaining why. Tracking info shows my package as still sitting on the dock. Today was the second scheduled delivery that this UPS facility didn't honor.

Has not upgraded to Google WiFi (still uses AT&T). Internet speeds are sloooooooow. Do NOT go here if you plan to go online.

Great coffee and friendly people. Just a heads up: the wifi connection is lacking. I came here to get work done but the wifi connection was too poor to connect to. The place wasn't crowded, either. I wish they had reliable wifi.

A good place but pricey. I guess that's to be expected given the area. I had a burger with a side of fruit.

This is a little place by the pier that serves ice cream and coffee. It's actually one of the few, if not the only place, to get coffee while having a few of the water at 9 am.

They do a laundry service for .85 a pound. A regular sized load was $16 and takes about 24 hours.

If you don't call in your order you can expect a 20-30 minute way. It's worth it though.
