How to automate an Internet business: Part III-Schedule blog posts and emails — 4 Comments

  1. I write my blog posts and newsletters Saturday morning and schedule them for Tuesday morning, two hours apart. No time for writing during the week.

  2. The most difficult part of having a blog calendar is to stick to it (and to have all the blog ideas in advance). What I do, is to write down a list of ideas or things that I want to talk about, and I write them as soon as I get inspired. Then, I post them little by little (if I have any blog posts in advance…).
    Thanks for the tips!

  3. Thank you Ellen so much great info I found on this blog, I never even knew that there was Madmimi in existence but one question though- Does MadMimi allow all these emails that internet marketers use to send? Emails that promotes maybe affiliate products or so?
    As a start-up I use mailchimp and the very first email I tried to send violated with their Ts nd their Cs so I cant send anymore I think I will try MadMimi if you recommend doing so.

  4. Themba, MadMimi doesn’t like you to use affiliate links, although I’ve used them without a problem from them. If you’re doing heavy affiliate marketing, I’d recommend AWeber. Here’s my affiliate link 🙂 http://www.ellenhelps.me/aw.
    A number of email services allow affiliate links but not affiliate marketing. What does that mean? It means that you CAN use affiliate links as long as they’re related to your topic, to what people signed up for. You can search any email provider’s policy in their tems of service.
    Here’s how MailerLite describes their policy:
    “Affiliate Marketing and Affiliate Links
    Affiliate Marketing and Affiliate Links are two different things. Affiliate Marketing is prohibited in MailerLite, but Affiliate Links are fine in most cases.

    Affiliate Marketing (Prohibited)- is a type of business where you earn commission by promoting other company’s products. We don’t allow this activity, because there’s no direct relationship between you and your subscribers. You are not allowed to send unrelated offers to your subscribers or pretend to be another brand.
    Affiliate Links (Allowed) – is a way to recommend product or service to your subscribers in your campaigns. Advertisement for another company (Affiliate Link) can only appear under your branding and be clearly presented as a special offer from another company. Moreover, the offer has to be related to your content and meet subscriber expectations. You are not allowed to send emails with links to content that is prohibited in our Terms of Use. Campaigns with blacklisted links will be stopped automatically and we may be forced to close the account permanently.”

    Good luck!
