Interview with List-Building Virtuoso Jonathan Gunson

Jonathan GunsonToday, I have a real treat for you: Below, you’ll find my recent interview with Jonathan Gunson from the Traffic Café. He is an Internet marketer with years of experience and his speciality is list-building and e-mail marketing.

In the interview, he talks about the best ways to get started with a list and also shares brilliant insights into what is called “integration marketing”. Integration marketing is a surprisingly understated and perhaps underutilised way of increasing traffic and sign-ups and if this is the first you’ve ever heard of it, you’ll be blown away by how much potential this method has.

CRewriter image

[error]UPDATE:

Unfortunately, CRewriter doesn’t exist anymore. As an alternative, I recommend you check out the free version of SpinChimp.[/error]

Link Love Friday #06

Ok, I actually wanted to do a link-roundup every Friday, but I’ve not been terribly consistent with this. Sometimes I just don’t find enough interesting stuff during the week to warrant a post, but more often, I’m just too caught up in a ton of other stuff and kind of forget about the LLF…

But I haven’t given up yet, so here’s another installment of Link Love Friday:

Content is Not King

Fiddy says Content ain't King

I have read so many posts on the subject of “Content is King” lately, that I feel I need to chime in on this. Now, don’t worry, RQR will never turn into a “blogging about blogging” blog. Stuff like this will remain the exception and I’ll usually leave it to the blogging-bloggers.

For today, though, I want to shed some much-needed light on the “Content is King” theme. And yes, I’ll also explain why the hell I have a picture of 50 cent up there.
