One the great things about this time is there are a ton of people creating great looking, extremely flexible, feature rich wordpress themes. Today I stumbled across Atomlux from Atomlabs. This theme is currently selling for less than $40.

The theme is not only flexible, but has a ton of training to go with it. Here is an example of one of their videos on making a call to action.

Today we talk about PaywithaTweet.com an interesting idea that I could get to work (see video below) and we start a discussion on leaving aweber manage your email list(s) using WordPress and Rapid Mailer plugin.

Pay With a Tweet

This is an interesting idea. It seems simple to use, except when I tweeted it, I got an error message and never got my download.

Rapid Mailer – Gain Complete Control of Your Mailing List

Aweber (as far as I can tell) does not allow you to have a non-double opt in list. Other cariers dictate what is in your email content. Now you can take complete control of your list. In some cases you can use your hosting mail system. If you are using Host Gator they state, “HostGator’s email policy states that shared and reseller customers should only sending out a maximum of 500 emails per hour.”

Currently I spent $179 a year (a discounted price to get my Aweber at $14 a month)

Rapid Mailer is a WordPress plugin that allows you to:

  • Rapid-Mailer-ReviewChoose Between using your hosting mail system or a third party like Amazon SES
  • You can have a mailing list that people have to pay to subscribe
  • Powerful importing of existing subscribers from any other Autoresponder in just a few clicks
  • Real-time “At-a-Glance” statistics and tracking of your email marketing campaigns
  • Integrated click tracking and shortlink support for rapid tracking of who clicks what…
  • Direct social media integration to increase viral spread for all your emails…
  • Offline version of any email for easy html viewing offline by the reader
  • Easy segmenting lists into groups for rapid management and sorting
  • Use Host, Gmail, or third party services like Amazon SES, SendGrid, Mandril, MailJet and more…
  • Easy double optin or single option configuration, no forced options here…
  • Simple integration into OptimizePress2, Leadpages, ListRocket or any other system
  • Avoid expensive monthly fees and use your own hosts mailing capabilities
  • Full autoresponder setup and broadcast management, ready to go in a few clicks…
  • Quick, responsive dashboard shows you everything you need to know quickly…

Update on Survey 2 Sale

I talked about Survey 2 Sale a few episodes ago, and I have to tell you that since installing it I’ve had a few people use the coupons that have been given out.This more than pays for the service and I’m getting a ton of information about how people have found my site and what they are looking or at my site. You can sign up for a free trial at www.weeklywebtools.com/surveysale (affiliate link)

Today we talk about consuming the show and another time scheduling tool. Then we get into the instasuite of products that I discovered after purchasing instatheme.

Betty Scheduling Tool

trybetty.com is a free scheduling tool that works inside your email. I looked at it, but for me personally the biggest hurdle of scheduling on a global scale can be a nightmare when it comes to time zones. I was using calend.ly and it messed them up. I tried timetrade.com and others. Betty makes me manually choose what time zone my guest is in. In some cases I have no idea, and that won’t work for me. The other alternative is to let your guest figure it out. No thanks

Schedule Once is My New Solution

Currently I’ve settled on scheduleonce.com which smacks people in the head when they schedule appointments with me and asks for the time zone. It then emails then 24 hours, and hour and if I want 10 minutes before the meeting and it follows up with them after the meeting.

Instatheme

I purchased instatheme as it looks very flexible and it has a drag and drop feature that makes building pages a snap. It appears to have just the right amount of flexibility, without going to far to where you are overwhelmed by all of the options. I will be talking more about this as I get some hands on time with it.

InstaMember

When I bought instatheme, it was managed (big surprise) by instamember. This has a very cool interface for the end user. It wasn’t confused, and knew exactly what to do upon entering. I was like, “This is too easy. What a great user experience.” When I went to the instamember site, they list all these great features like

  • Built in affiliate program
  • integrates with goto webinar.com
  • multiple products, subscriptions, etc.
  • Works with multiple payment types, and autoresponders
  • Works with affiliate networks like clickbank

It didn’t appear to have a drip feature. I emailed their support (once I found it), and got a quick answer. They do have a drip function. When I asked if you get a “10,000 foot overview” of your content and when it would be released, they sent a screenshot showing you did indeed. Cool.

If you’re new to dripping, this is where you create a bunch of content and then let it release over time. This helps your membership site retention levels stay high. Very cool.

While there are a few features that Digital Access Pass has (like a dime sale, and stripe integration) I can now see where instamember is something everyone should consider if you’re looking to create a membership site. At $47 (that includes a “lite” version of instatheme) you might want to check it out.

Instabuilder

Instabuilder is a plugin that allows you to do, well, just about everything. Yes you can make cool marketing pages with video, bullet points, it has great tools like a count down timer, the ability to integrate with twitter and facebook, and a whole lot more. The best part it is also around $47
