  1. Terra, I am sorry to hear about your loss. It is crazy to think how fast things can spiral out of control. Congrats on all of your hard work! As a woman, I am already inspired. I can't wait for the Little Jenna movies.
  2. I plan on working through the holidays and just drink all of 2019 to make up for it. In any case, I hope all had a great time with loved ones and even the unloved ones. haha Thomas
  3. Thanks JD! I appreciate that. I'll definitely look at making the main page more about the pain points and how to soothe that burning pain (like syphilis). haha I'm going to break off the features onto a totally different page this week. That way the main sales page isn't trying to do everything. I also expect most of the selling to be done before they get to the sales page. This thing does so much that I should be able to put out a lot of content/videos. I was thinking of mimicking some of those youtube channels that go through productivity apps and do reviews or how to's. Then show how my program can automate the app towards the end. Something I will play around with when time permits. Hopefully I can get back to the sales page this week. I'll post an update when I can. Thomas
  4. Thanks Mike! I wasn't sure if I should go that route. I dipped my toes in it. lol I was looking over at Filemaker and the emphasis was on custom apps. Mine does very similar but the automation is a huge difference. So then I started thinking central hub where data comes and goes. That doesn't really tell anyone anything if I really think about. What the heck is a central hub or data? Man, I do appreciate the feedback because this stuff has me going around in circles without it. Thomas
  5. I have a feeling I am going the wrong way because I know this program isn't for your average "push a button and magic gold bullion will pop out of your dog's bum" crowd. haha I am probably overcompensating with a lot of information hoping the people who shouldn't purchase won't. It's a big support hassle when dealing with putting in hours answering questions only for them to tell you it's too tough. It's part of the job, as they say, but I am always looking for a better way to avoid the curb kickers and spend more time with the people who will get something out of it. I do think you're right and I need to approach it a lot differently. I appreciate the insights and the inspiration.
  6. Mucho gracioso for that feedback Princess. I agree that simple is better. It may be better to keep it short and just educate them through the sales funnel with smaller snippets before they get to the sales page. I think I will do a major purge. Possibly include the features on a different page for the people who are more anal about that stuff like me.
  7. I'm still amazed at the internet and the ability to learn just about anything from using it. Let me put on my old hat and smoke a pipe while I say this... I remember back when us old dudes didn't have that thar internetz stuff. We had to go to the bookstore and buy real books. Those were the days when phones where connected to walls. Our first computer was a Commodore 64. I started getting into programming then when trying to build one of the word games. You know, the ones where you had to choose between option a, b or c and then the response comes up. lol Ping pong was a revolution, man! Seriously, being able to access information within seconds is such a marvel that I think we tend to lose sight at how well things are today. I honestly don't know if I could have done many of the things without being able to get information from others so readily. Outside of Social Media, things are great. I do think things were better before Social Media when it comes to interacting with others.
  8. Thanks Mike. I appreciate it. I am still working on the sales page. I alternate between that and other things so it is still a little rough (need to spell and grammaritize it ). Like I said before, my main concern is clarity. My program does a lot and the first attempt at the sales page had others asking WTF? haha Right now I am concentrating on the automation as the main selling feature for the program. http://profittigersystems.com/products/smartflo/ I do plan on pre-selling on a blog before they get to that page. Any and all feedback is gratefully appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to give it a look. Thomas
  9. Hi All, My main software program is pretty big. I put out a sales page some time ago but many said it wasn't very clear as to what it did. haha I was hoping to post a link here but wanted to check if it is ok to do so. The program isn't quite ready for release and I don't want anyone to mistake this for self promotion. If it is ok then I will post the link to the site. I'm still working on the sales page, but would like to know if I'm on the right path as they say. Thanks, Thomas
  10. I hear you Mike. Probably not a bad idea to farm that type of stuff out and concentrate on more important things. In a way, I hope to build this up big enough to where people can make money setting up this program for business owners like you. Back in the day there was a lot of people help small businesses setting up their Access databases. Now you can see something similar with consultants helping business owners set up their own online marketing in programs like Salesforce. Then there is a part of me that would be content with just 2k to 5k people using this and calling it a day. lol
  11. Mike, thanks for the suggestion and it's a good one. I did think about adding a service, but the idea of the support of that service gives me a gag reflex. haha I plan on adding a way for others to sell the automation scripts they built. My thinking is this will give some advanced users some incentive to help others and the less tech will be able to get started right away with pre-built scripts. I will probably pre-build some myself. Maybe even build a store for automation scripts that can be accessible through the software. Once the script is purchased, the software will download and import the script.
  12. Awesome! Thanks Mike. It should sell well. The only issue I see is losing out on the less tech oriented groups of people. I haven't figured out a way to make automation extremely easy without losing the flexibility to accommodate a lot of different scenarios. The SEO/Adwords suggestions are fantastic or as said on one of the greatest televisions shows of all times...
  13. Hi All, A little background, I am about ready to release a new app that I've been working on for many years. haha It does a lot but I will be concentrating the marketing on the automation features and how it can save them hours every week. Internet marketers will be a demographic that I will start marketing towards but then will expand out from there. As of right now, I have the following services built in... Cloud Storage (dropbox, box, google drive, onedrive, amazon s3) Email.Messaging Marketing (Aweber, Mailchimp, SendGrid, PostMark, Amazon Ses, Twilio) Productivity (Trello, Wunderlist, Google Tasks, Google Calendar, Google Sheets). Payments (Paypal, Braintree, Stripe, and soon 2Checkout) Social Media (Wordpress, Twitter, Youtube... I wanted to add Facebook/Instagram but they changed access to the api and I will need to go through some review process after I release the software. I may bypass the review and go automate a browser to accomplish the same actions). Now I was thinking of adding... ECommerce (Shopify which is already done, Ebay, Amazon Marketplace, Wooecommerce, Clickbank). Shipping (USPS, USP, Fed) CRM (not sure what to add here outside of the big ones like SalesForce, Zoho and possibly Mautic for those that want self hosted solutions). Thanks for any ideas. I'm running out of them fast! Thomas
  14. Mike, I think many people (as well as I did when starting out) struggle getting that ad spend back quickly enough. I noticed a lot of people who had trouble was also selling a low cost item and didn't seem to have a sales funnel to help recoup those ad costs. I would have loved to go through a course that showed the whole process. Starting out with keywords to quality scores to landing pages (with testing) to running those leads through a sales funnel. Most of the course I have gone through never really touched on it and I think it is very important if you want people to be successful. You sort of have to piece it together through multiple courses and many people have a hard time connecting those dots.
  15. Congrats on all the success Terra! Sorry about the eye. No doubt the surgery will fix that. In the meantime, you will be an awesome pirate.
