Ezine Promotion, The Three Forgotten TacticsWritten by Peter Murphy
Continued from page 1
Give first and you will be amazed at how receptive people are to working with you for mutual gain. You will immediately stand out from crowd in a world where so many people always wants something without any consideration for needs of other person.
3 Use information as a bonus:
Write an ebook or ecourse with genuinely useful information and offer it to other ezine publishers. Let them use it as a special bonus to keep their existing subscribers coming back for more. They will also benefit from referrals when their readers pass on newsletter to friends so that they too can read your ebook or ecourse.
Too many ezines are short on great articles they can use. There are plenty of articles available out there but very few high quality ones that you will use in your own ezine.
The same applies when ezine authors want to offer incentives to encourage their readers to buy their own information products. If you give publishers a high quality ebook or ecourse that they can bundle with their information product you will get your message out to a lot of people and very quickly.
These tactics could help you to build your ezine in ways you never considered before now. Test them for yourself and enjoy new success with your ezine.

Organize For CreativityWritten by Kathleen Wilson
Continued from page 1
curtain rod, tie it on with ribbon, or try my favorite, velcro stick-on tabs! Organize your kitchen logically, and not only will you reduce clutter, you'll save time and energy! Place items in cupboards near area where you normally use them. For instance, spices near stove, everyday dishes near dishwasher, cutting board and knives near sink - you get idea! Use small boxes turned upside-down to make higher "shelves" in back of your spice cabinet. You don't have to buy expensive storage cubes for your kids' rooms! Covered boxes, sewn drawstring bags from extra material, even an old suitcase under bed make good storage. A wall of simple metal-strip utility shelving (they sell it in white, as well) can accommodate a large amount of stuff, especially for older kids, and is relatively cheap at home improvement stores. I save old baby-wipe containers to store crayons, hot wheels, and that endless supply of useless toys from fast food joints! You can cover them with contact paper. Try labeling what goes where, even for older kids, so there is no arguing about what "putting it away" really means! Finally, attack one area at a time. Try to fit in a little re-organizing each day, and you'll be recognizing that creative décor you lost in clutter again soon!
