Advance YourSelf: Magazine Styles and Traffic

By Ian Fernando

So I been hit with several emails about partnering up with people to do projects or promote their products. I hate getting the standard email about their products and how it benefits me to JV with them to join their affiliate program! The problem is - JV and being an affiliate is totally different! Well anyways I found 2 and 'stumbled' on a really nice product. So they are all pretty basic but I found a lot of strong points in some of these products.

Create your Own Magazine Style Blog

First I want to talk to you about magazine themes. In the past I discussed about Magazine Styles Blogs and even showed you several themes of magazine styles. Some times some themes are pretty expensive for some start up bloggers, but these premium magazine styles is the new wave of blogs (IMO). Well Syed Balkhi has create a product which is free to download on how to create your own magazine style blog theme for WordPress. This is a great step by step tutorial for creating your own magazine style blog, without paying web designers for their blog designs.

I personally have most of my blogs or content sites running Brian Gardner's Revolution Themes or iThemes. This quick tutorial gives you an understanding of how WordPress works and an understanding for design. The only problem I found is if a newbie downloaded this tutorial it would be overwhelming, because at only 30 pages there was not a lot of deep explanation on reason for code or just s simple explanation what a specific code does.

I found this pretty helpful since I do not a little of what WordPress has to offer. Syed has done a great job and has had well over a couple hundred downloads on his free tutorial. If you want to learn how to create your own Magazine Style Theme for WordPress visit Syed Blog and download it right away - it's FREE!

Getting a Quick Rush with Blog Andrenaline

John Motson of has created a product which a lot of people are attacking. Gathering traffic for your blog or generating income from your blog. This quick 80+ page ebook has a lot of information kinda of cramped but has information I have not even heard.

There are I think 4 sections of traffic he speaks about which are pretty powerful, which involves social marketing or using social networks. The eBook is very organized and breaks everything down into really good content.

Some aspects I already kinda knew, but some tactics which John does puts a twist on some strategies that I do. I think John has reached a good audience and explains a lot of his techniques fairly well.

A Rush of Stumbles = Crazy Traffic

Caroline MIddlebrook has came up with another great product. I actually stumbled on this and StumbleUpon is a very powerful system to get traffic. The thing with StumbleUpon is it can be considered junk traffic because yo are getting a ton of views but the percentage of conversions isn't that big. I was very excited when I received my first real stumble, but found it to be poor traffic when I launched an experiment on stumble traffic.

I do not have a copy of Caroline MIddlebrook latest product but I know she has a lot of good information because of her other product about WordPress Niche Empires, I can tell she has Stumble Rush on lock down.

Take a look at all three of these and let me know what you think. Each of these are all worth looking into and they are not expensive at all. With each containing knowledge that you may not have known or even know about, these tricks will definitely help you out on accelerating yourself.
