I still remember my first day as a freelance blogger/writer pretty clearly, even though it was some years ago. I was sitting on my computer at my mom’s house, looking at an email from my first ever client and thinking something along the lines of, “So you really want to pay me for writing blog posts?!

Technorati is no longer with us. Actually, scratch that. Technorati is still with us as a company, but their famous blog directory is gone.

You have been working day and night to build a great mailing list, create your newsletter, promote it everywhere you can, maybe even create a free gift to entice people to join, following all the tips to boost email open rates yet all this seems in vain when people opt out so eagerly from your email list after receiv ...
Coupons seem like a pretty old school piece of marketing history, don’t they? I mean, it’s 2014 and we are no longer that excited about things like Groupon or its many copycats (how much discounted sushi can a person eat?).
