Want More Blog Comments? Use Disqus

UPDATE: August 13 2014! I have pulled the pin on using Disqus commenting system and gone back to using Comment luv! Why? Two main reason. 1) people can’t be fruited to log in to Disqus to be able to post a comment. 2) Spam comments were hitting me almsot daily. 3) I suspect that Disqus was slowing down my site load speed inside the WP admin and on the outside. I don’t recommend Disqus. Stick with regular WP comments and Comment Luv. If you want to get really fancy, use Facebook comments as well.

If you scroll down, you might notice that I’m now using the Disqus commenting system on this blog. Cool huh?

For about 12 months, I was using the standard WordPress commenting system here and it was working ok.

I had Comment Luv installed and Spam was under control from the use of Akismet, and had Gravatars enabled so it was a little tweaked.

But because I’m always on the lookout for ways to make my sites better, i.e. easier to use, more interesting etc., I had no choice but to switch to Disqus!

Why is Disqus so much better?

Disqus offers so much more than the standard WP comment system.

The fact that readers can post a comment without having to fill out the 3 fields of boredom (name, email, website) is the biggest point why I made the switch.

Commentors can leave a comment by simply clicking one button to be signed in with Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo, OpenID or Disqus itself and typing their thoughts away!

It just makes it easier for readers to comment, and the easier it is, the more likely more people will comment. It also almost entirely eliminates spam!

How easy was it to integrate Disqus into my blog?

A piece of cake.

All I needed was the Disqus Commenting System plugin and a free account with Disqus. A few minutes later I was up and running with my old comments still in place.

The downside?

The only thing I’m worried about (a little) is that the comments will no longer benefit my blog by way of SEO.

All comments are actually stored on the Disqus website and just ‘appear’ on my blog through some internet magic so I have a feeling Google will never know when I have new comments πŸ™

But that doesn’t bother me really as I don’t rely on Google for my traffic. 95% of all my traffic comes from OTHER places besides Google, luckily πŸ™‚

So try it out! Leave a comment about your thoughts on Disqus or just to say ‘hi’.

iPad App Creator Swipes $70K In 20 Days

The iPad is here and it’s not only Apple that is cashing in on the trend!

iPad App creators are also pocketing nice pay checks. It seems there’s a new success story about overnight App developers hitting the jackpot everyday!

One example of a successful iPad App comes is Yuri Selukioff from GoodiWare.com who created the “Good Reader” – an app that allows users to read and transfer .PDF, .TXT, .Word and other files to their iPad.

iPad users can download his app for a mere $0.99 and because it’s nearing 100,000 downloads, Yuri is looking at receiving a healthy $70,000 paycheck from Apple.

(Apple takes 30% of the profits and remaining 70% goes to the developer)

Yuri’s success story is just one of many.

Another example: The creator of Smule’s “Magic Piano” app rocketed into the Top 15 after a video of a cat playing with the App went viral on Youtube.

In the video, the owner opens the App and the cat goes crazy playing with it. That video has over 6.7 million views as of this writing!

The owner of the app says he gets about 1000 downloads a day – again this app is priced at just $0.99. (I’ll let you do the math!)

As you can see, there is very decent coin to be made in the iPad App market.

I’m all about finding out and relaying new and profitable ways to make money on the internet and I have to say that this App creation business is definitely one with huge potential, as the above examples show.

Sure it’s a little more advanced and costly than selling ebooks, but it’s not out of reach for anyone with an entrepreneurial mindset.

If you wanted to create apps yourself, there is plenty of training material and software to learn all the programming languages. The other way to do it is to hire a team of developers to do it for you.

All you need is a good idea to get started and who knows, you could be the next iPad App success story!

If you’re interested in jumping on the iPad App gravy train, NOW is the best time to do it. More and more apps are being developed but there is still plenty of room for new ideas.

In the new App Cash Formula ecourse that I have released with James Brown, you will learn all the steps to creating top selling ipad apps for yourself even if you don’t know the first thing about App creation.

iPads aren’t going away any time soon and the demand for apps isn’t going to die down. This is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor.

The digital age we live in is a very exciting time for entrepreneurs!

To your success,
Stu “Sensei” Stirling

Stu Sensei Says: Get Tweetdeck

Tweetdeck is a freeΒ  multiple social site profile management application (say that fast 10 times) which I came across a while ago and one that I’m going to be using for a long time to come because it just keeps getting better and better.

Originally, Tweetdeck was designed with Twitter in mind and was only a desktop app, but has come a very long way. You can now manage your Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Buzz, Foursquare, and Myspace profiles from the one apllication.

And did I mention it now has many different applications for PC, Mac, Linux, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad?

When it was new, I wanted to use it for my Twitter account and had it for my desktop.

I like using Twitter but I didn’t like using the Twitter.com site for a few reasons. Them being, the Twitter home page would scroll very sloooooowwwwly, and I when I wanted to unfollow someone, I had to go to that user’s page and then click on “unfollow”.

Tweetdeck solves those problems and provides me with even more eye-popping features.

The best features being…

– I can see the main news feed, my mentions, my direct messages and my Facebook news feed all on the one screen.

– I can follow and unfollow anyone without going to their profile page (although Twitter.com lets you do that now too).

– I can retweet, reply, send a direct message to a user in a click or two.

– I can schedule Tweets (love this one).

– I can upload pics, videos and record a video with your webcam and Tweet it right away.

– I can manage/tweet from multiple Twitter accounts by switching them on/off.

There are more like, auto url shrinking, TweetShrinking, translation, see recent hash tags you’ve used and more.

I’ve probably forgotten many but I think you get the gist of it.

The best thing is it’s free and like I said, it keeps getting better. It’s fast and light on your computer.

If you use Twitter and/or other social networking sites and want a central control panel, you can’t beat Tweetdeck. I give it double thumbs up.

You can download TweetDeck here for free.

And by the way, if you’re on Twitter, please follow me! Here’s my Twitter profile: http://www.twitter.com/StuartStirling

Enjoy and have a great day!

Setting Up Your Online Support Desk

If you’re selling digital products, or any product online, a support desk website is highly recommended.

I finally pulled my finger out and got a dedicated support desk set up this week after doing internet marketing and selling digital products for nearly 4 years without one.

Something I should have got around to about 3 and a half years ag0 πŸ˜‰

How NOT To Manage Support

Up until now, I was managing (receiving and sending) the majority of my customer support requests directly from my email inbox.

You can probably see the many problems with this.

eg. Lost emails that get either get mixed with spam and I accidentally delete them or emails that never get delivered full stop.

I sometimes had customers complain, telling me they had tried to contact me once or twice already without a response. Of course, this is not good for business.

Customer satisfaction is a top priority for me, and should be for you too if you care about your business.

Having a dedicated support desk, and not just an email address says a lot for your credibility too. When your customers see you care enough to have a quality support system in place, they feel more secure about dealing with you online.

Easy To Outsource

Another benefit for having an online support desk is that it makes outsourcing the task so easy. This is something I will be doing very soon.

I spend way too much time sending customers new download links for digital products (any marketer who uses RAP or $7 secrets script will know what it’s like). Customer support is not a task for the entrepreneur.

Out time would be MUCH better spent on developing products, writing copy and networking with other entrepreneurs – things that take us forward in our business.

Best Support Desk Option

After looking around for support desk software, I finally decided on the free, open source system, OS Ticket.

It’s simple enough for even me to use, and I could install it via my cpanel’s fantastico on my website…and it’s free. Quick, easy, free – just what I wanted.

The only complaint I have about OS Ticket is that there isn’t a Knowledge base or FAQ where customers can search for and check info before submitting a ticket. But seeing as though the majority o my support demands at the moment are for new download links, FAQ’s aren’t going to help with that much.

A Domain Name Or Not?

I set up my support desk on a new domain, StuartStirlingSupport.com.

You can do this too – something like YourNameHelpDesk.com which gives a nice image and helps with your credibility. But there is always the option to create your support desk on a sub-domain or in a new directory on your existing domain. i.e. www.YourName.com/support

Either way you choose, a support desk website is going to help you avoid clutter in your inbox and give your customers a better experience.

To your success,
