American as Apple Pie: .US Domain Names (for a bigger piece of the pie)


We’re not going to lie to you. America rocks. There’s no better way to let your customers and website visitors know your pro.

There’s no better way to communicate to visitors that you’re proudly made in the USA than with a .US domain extension, and right now your .US domain names are only $3.99!

Anatomy of a Weekly Email Newsletter


What makes a great Email Newsletter?

If you’re in Affiliate Marketing and operate a blog, chances are you have a weekly newsletter.  I’m a sucker for signing up for that newsletter as it’s just easier to be reminded of my favorite blogs and what they’re dishing out in my inbox.  Maybe I’m too much of a sucker, as I had to do some cleaning up of my inbox this week.  It’s interesting that the newsletters that made the cut all had similar characteristics.  If you’re thinking of revamping your current newsletter, or looking to begin the weekly delivery of your goodies-  then give these tips a look-see.  The anatomy of your newsletter is listed below…

Kate Middleton, NFL Replacement Refs, SNL “Gangnam Style” vs “Call Me Maybe” on trenD


This is where Domain Names meet trends…

And oh man has it been ugly on the football field. The play has been decent, but it’s the refereeing that is causing much consternation. With the regular refs striking the new replacement refs (who should be much admired for their death-defying efforts) are struggling with the rules. We’re surprised nobody has been killed. Meanwhile, it’s pretty in France, where England’s naked princess has been pasted across the tabloids. And now what…sex scenes? That’s what they say, but a royal lawsuit has things tied up. Whatever…you go you young, wealthy royals. You know it’s gotta get old acting prim and proper all the time. Just ask Harry.

And finally, Saturday Night Live is back, and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane does a fine job hosting…along with a new...

Allison Pill, Kate Middleton, Britney Spears, iphone 5 on trenD


Domains and Trends in one! In this episode…

It’s something that really should be a major part of this year’s elections: Why is it so awful to see a naked breast? Princess Kate Middleton shed her royal garb and a French tabloid posted the pics. Now the palace is ticked and all the world in a fury. Why? It’s the Puritans isn’t it? Those skin-covering sin police who dressed beautiful natives in Big Dog t-shirts. Dang it. It’s wrong. And then there’s the iPhone 5. People say they are disappointed, but analysts say there should still be about 6,000,000 pre-orders.

Finally, the Innocence of Muslims is a really bad video that no one should get excited about.

Rated PG, for reals.

Lifehacker, the esteemed and very useful site for all-things consumer, simplicity, tech and information, is asking its readers to vote on their favorite domain name registrar.
