I have a Wordpress site with WooCommerce and have my entire store working for PDF download, after purchase.

My WooCommerce emails out a URL to the PDF file for download. But I need to give mobile users the option of using Dropbox.

How do I do this?

Is this a WordPress plug-in? Or an option / plug-in for WooCommerce?

Thanks

I have a book on PDF which I expect to be about 500 MB in size. Far too big to email to the buyer, after purchase via PayPal. I will sell the PDF on my WordPress website.

Can I sell a PDF to an iPhone user?

I have no interest in diving back into being an Apple Developer at the moment, but will do so if people show an interest in my book. But, with my book selling on my website, are buyers forced to download the PDF on their PC's? And does this mean they must use Dropbox (for example) as a way to read the book on their iPhones?

I am curious.

Thanks.

I have a youtube video with a pitch for a subscription service.

I plan to get some assistance in promoting the service and want to find a way to tie the link being passed around by each individual salesperson, back to that individual so that I know what commission to pay them if those viewers become customers.

Assistance in figuring out how to do this is greatly appreciated.

Hi All -
When we run Pay-per-Click campaigns for Customers, I want to be able to show a Customer the results, Cost per Click, etc ... HOWEVER I need to include our markup in the cost numbers ...
For example,  a Click costs us $1.00. I want to be able to show $1.25. Everything else is the same.
Can anyone suggest any options? Either using Google/Bing or Open Source SW :) :)  or 3rd party SW.

Thanks all in advance!

There is a massive demand for content on the web right now, and it doesn't look like it's going to stop any time soon. But, if you are running a business blog, it's not just enough to offer your audience lots of content. It needs to be high-quality content if you plan on making an impact and boosting your business. So, in short, you need to be able to write awesome content, and be consistent at it, which is easier said than done.


But, the following 7 simple rules may be able to make your job a lot easier. Keep on reading.


1. Always Provide Answers

It's just common sense. Put yourself in your audience's shoes. If you are performing a search on Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, or any other search engine, you are doing it because you are looking for answers or useful information. Once they click on your article, they will expect to find answers that correspond with their question. If they’re not there, they will go somewhere else, because the sheer volume of content out there is enormous. 


2. Make Your Content Original

We all know that Google doesn't like duplicate content. In fact, it penalizes it. But, it's not enough to make your content unique in a sense that you're using your own words to describe something that is already out there. The goal is to make your content original, too. Try and tackle the issue from a different point of view and come up with some new solutions that haven't been shared anywhere else. Google's algorithm is pretty smart right now, and it will be able to sense if your content is original.


3. Come up With Strong Headlines
Because there is so much content out there that is easily available, people are extremely picky and impatient in their search for it. About 80% of the people will check out your headline, which sound like a good number. But, only 20% of those people will decide to read the article that is behind the headline. This means your headline should be catchy, but most of all, specific, so that the reader knows what's in it for them right from the get-go, before they even click on the link. 


4. Make Sure Your Content Is Concise

This doesn't mean that there is no room for longer, more detailed pillar posts. But, the majority of your audience members are used to scanning and skimming the content first. In order to convince them to stick around and read the entire article, break it down into short paragraphs, each with its own subheading. Also, try and introduce only one idea per paragraph. You can also create a series of post that tie into one another, so that they keep coming back for more. 


5. Present the Most Important Ideas and Information First

This is a logical continuation of the previous paragraph. Instead of waiting for the conclusion to provide your readers with an important insight, deliver it right away. Remember that they like to skim the content. If you provide them with your key ideas right away, you will spark their curiosity, and then elaborate your point within the article. This is also known as the inverted pyramid method.


6. Use Visual Content

People enjoy eye-catching visuals, so regardless of how good your written content is, spicing it up with some cool images, videos, diagrams, screenshots, or infographics is a must for every serious business blog nowadays. But, make sure that each of those is relevant to your content. Simply stuffing your article with generic stock photography should be your last resort. 


7. Proofread Your Content

If your content is free of any grammar, spelling, and stylistic errors, nobody is going to notice, because that is something that should be a given. But, if your articles are full of mistakes, the readers will have a tough time taking your blog, and your business, seriously. It's a drag, but proofreading is something that needs to be done.


Conclusion

As you can see, coming with amazing written content for your business blog does take some effort, but if you decide to follow the tips shared in this article, you will be able to improve your results in no time.

Hi

I have asked many Adsense questions, and it seems my account cant be validated. (embarrassment EMOJI ?)
It needs to send me a pin in a text or phone call. This must be my entire problem.

The number it has is undoubtedly mine (910) xxx-xxxx
but it fails to accept it, it says "Invalid phone number. Check your phone and try again" I tried my parents' number and it failed.

What might be wrong?

Thanks

Google recently announced they'll no longer scan your personal emails for marketing purposes:

Consumer Gmail content will not be used or scanned for any ads personalization after this change.

I wonder if they were facing litigation over that technology.

Hi

My new blog is ready and needs ads. New ads aren't working.
The Ad name appears where the ad should appear, but no image.
Maybe it is because - my new site hasn't been approved? - Adsense account needs to be updated with a 'new Site' section and its purpose / URL / etc
What needs changing? My last blog worked easily
Thanks

I recently watched a video on Moz.com, who are recognised by many as experts in social media and SEO.  The video I watched was recommending a strategy that suggested that to maximise the use of each unique tweet, you should seek to schedule the same tweet multiple times over two weeks (it was suggested 7 times over two weeks) AND at different times, acknowledging the fact that the average Twitter user only spend 13 minutes per day on the platform, so unless you scheduled at different times, the size of audience you would hit through a single tweet posted once was minimal.

However, looking at Twitters policy, it would appear that multiple posting of the same tweet is spam

Question to Answer
1. Is there a limit to the number of times you can retweet a tweet?
2. If you can retweet a tweet without it being seen as spam by twitter, how many retweets over what period of time (e.g. 1 tweet retweeted 3 x over 2 weeks - just and example) would you recommend?
3. What is the maximum number of tweets you could post in a single day without it being seen as spam? (have seen forums suggesting anything in excess of 10 would be seen as spam by twitter)

Thanks in advance,
David

I have a book I am coming out with and would like to make it easy for people to click a button or URL and have that open Twitter with a default Tweet I could embed in my doc. If they want to send it as is, great.

Also, can I attach an image to this?

Also, how can  I do this with Facebook also?

I guess a link could easily be pasted but that would include MY Twitter account. Is that desired? Would that mean I need to make the tweet before I can paste it into the PDF?

Thanks.

Hi

I have done Adsense before on a blog, and broke the payment threshold just? once.

I think I once saw on their TOS that Adsense is only allowed through regular browsing.
This is a reasonable requirement, and my first blog was a discussion.

If on my new discussion, I want to do a serious prize contest, like $50 K, for a submitted audio track, am I allowed to say that only serious, well respected, active members on the site can submit tracks for peer-review via my permission? What might be the surrounding issues?
Thanks

Hi

I already asked a little about this, but my dad heard about me preparing to pay legal fees to do this - $500 consultation, and got upset

He insisted I register my blog's name online.

I found

trademarkplus .com

Is this a safe / recommendable way to do it?

I am just thinking about this very cliched phrase that is so often used by corporate executives. And this dawned upon me when my friend asked me what is my USP when I decided to setup a store on an online marketplace.

I am thinking of this from 2 angles:
  1. From a business angle
  2. From a product angle

Example:
What really differentiate Supermarket A from Supermarket B,C, or D?

  • They will likely be selling the similar range of brands at likely the similar prices.
  • They will likely have the similar facilities like parking, children friendly facilities, etc
  • The level of service will likely be the same

So how can a business as such really differentiate themselves? And even if they do, how can prevent it from being duplicated.

And at the end, if they really came with something unique .. is it really a uniqueness that matter to the consumers?

Hi

I have no doubt that these targeted email blast websites have dubiously acquired emails in their lists.
They claim it is double checked and such. Is that possible?

Maybe I can hope for something good. Is this Political email list service reasonably trustworthy?
