Before we get to this week’s podcast recommendation, I just want to take a brief second to tell you about a massive discount going on right now over at StudioPress.
It’s for one of our most popular products: the Pro Plus All-Theme Package.
It makes right now the ideal time to acquire unlimited access to all of our current and future StudioPress themes — so you can update your company’s site design with a fresh look anytime you wish.
Here’s the offer: We’re taking $125 right off the top of our Pro Plus All-Theme Package, and you can purchase it today for only $374.95.
Whether you use websites as online business cards, or are a serial ecommerce entrepreneur, updating your designs regularly is a great way to keep the sites fresh for you and your visitors. It’s like a new coat of paint … except you can apply it with a few clicks, rather than all day on a ladder. 😉
Here’s a quick rundown of everything you get, in perpetuity, if you register for Pro Plus today:
- All current StudioPress themes — there are 38 as of today
- All future StudioPress themes — a couple were recently released, and others are already in development
- All current and future third-party themes we add to Pro Plus — there are 22 currently, with more on the way
- All design, security, and functionality updates to the Genesis Framework
- Plus support for all themes from our amazing support staff (Note: we support StudioPress themes, while the third-party developers support their themes.)
The deal ends tomorrow (July 28th) at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
If you take your online business seriously and want to be prepared for the future, make sure to give this offer a hard look as it doesn’t get any better.
And now … back to the show!
In the latest episode of Sites, Jerod Morris walks you through a critical mistake related to SEO that too many website owners are making.
Then, he provides you with 3 action steps that will help you compete in the modern, and future, SEO landscape.
The episode is titled: Are You Making This Common SEO Mistake?
Listen and subscribe to Sites:
If you use another podcast app, just search for “sites” and you should find the show.
Now here are five more resources to help you create, sell, and grow — curated by me and members of Digital Commerce Academy.
1. Own a membership site? If so, this is for you
As a membership site owner, finding ways to increase your customer retention rates is likely one of your top priorities. Understandably so, since the key to making the membership model work is recurring revenue.
2. Don’t hesitate to raise your prices
Price increases are scary. People balk at the idea of asking for any money, let alone more. But raising prices is inevitable for a well-run company. Not understanding this, and not changing pricing is a fatal mistake.
3. More on SEO (Yes, from Jerod)
It’s time to think beyond traditional notions of “search engines” and take a look at what the future has in store for SEO.
4. Don’t forget to set aside time for yourself
The truth is – you are not successful if the only riches in your life are measured in dollars. A much better measure is the positive impact we have on others as well as ourselves.
5. Build a company that stands the test of time
Over time, your product, market, and channels for acquisition may evolve rapidly. There’s one big thing you have to do to future-proof your business model.
I hope you find these resources to be useful, and that at least one of them helps you take a meaningful step forward during the course of the next week.
Thanks for your attention, and have a great weekend.
