|I must admit that I do tend to be influenced by
testimonials at a site. I would hope I can see through the
fake ones and those where the writer has not really
bothered to check out the product. And I do expect to see
the name of a real person i.e a proper website address.
Well here is one that does not even talk about the product
but for me is more powerful than the best sales letter.
"I was genuinely shocked when I received an email from X,
creator of Y, and all-round good-guy.
He was emailing me to tell me that as an affiliate of his,
his software had recorded a sale, yet for some strange
reason Clickbank never registered that I was owed a
commission on it.
He was emailing me to discuss the situation and what was
the best way for him to pay me this commission - a
commission I wouldn't even have known I was due if it
weren't for X's honesty and integrity.
I would not hesitate to do business with X again, and
highly recommend you do the same."
You can see that actual testimonial at the FAQ page for
the product Power-RSS which I discuss in today's

Hello SuperTips readers,
Here's a puzzle - and a super tip - for you.
When someone has hundreds of email messages arriving daily
what can you do to GRAB their attention ?
Any ideas ?

It calls for some lateral thinking.
Answer: don't send them an email !
A package turned up in my post a few days ago containing a
neatly packaged CD and an accompanying letter inviting me
to look at a review copy of a new product.
How could I refuse ?
I was very impressed - and will report back in the next
Another unexpected way that I came across a product was at
a recent meeting with some Internet marketers where I found
myself sitting next to Paul Smithson.
Paul is the creator of the new and highly popular XSitePro
which is a website building package designed specifically
for the Internet marketer.
I've used it to convert and enhance a number of small
minisites that I had lying around.
That took just a few hours to set up.
Take a look at the Articles link in the menu.
All I had to do was search for free articles by keyword at
some article directory sites and then paste the content
into XSitePro. The list of articles is automatically
updated, so is the site map, and Google AdSense is added
with a few clicks.
A new release has just been brought out so there are lots
of features I'm still not using.
You can see exactly how XSitePro works in this short
Now whenever I get a spare minute I simply find more
articles and add them effortlessly to this and my other
minisites. Providing lots of relevant content is just what
the search engines like.
But you know what the search engines like even more ?
It's NEW content, lots of inbound links from other sites
and even internal links from your own pages.
And I've started to give them that.
And guess how many spare minutes that's taken me.
Take a look again at
and click on the News menu.
That is all automatically produced for me.
Click on the News Archives at the end.
Again - automatically produced.
Search engine gold.
Continual content and links, added day after day, at just
the rate that the search engines like.
It's done by using the latest technology called RSS - but
don't be frightened off by the term. There's a tool which
handles it all for you.
It's called Power-RSS.
And it's the latest creation from super guru Adrian Ling
and - being super - he now has his own special page at my
If you want to have Adrian's tool slaving away night and
day bringing you higher rankings and AdSense income take a
