Curdbee Review: Online Invoicing for Freelancers and Small Businesses

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

I do a bit of freelancing sometimes. And when you do that, you need to be able to invoice your clients.

Of course, you could just whip a quick invoice in Words or any word processor that you use. But where’s the fun in that?

Now imagine this — invoicing is FUN (yes, apart from getting paid). I want to introduce you to CurdBee.com. That’s what I use for invoicing my clients.

CurdBee.com is an online, web-based invoicing software by a company called Vesses. I am starting to really like this company and the things they do.

I have been checking out online invoicing for some time now. I didn’t really test everything out, but I know about the others like FreshBook, BlinkSale, CashBoard, Zoho and others. But when checking these options out, I am drawn to CurdBee.com.

Why I am drawn to CurdBee.com? One is because of their generosity.

You see, online invoicing software makes money by charging you a monthly fee. But at times they still let you in for a free peek. But these free peek accounts are always limited in some ways. Well CurdBee has a free account that is limited too. But the main difference here is this — While others limit you by how much you can earn with their software, CurdBee does not.

Let me explain.

A Cool Trick To Affiliate Marketing Review With Videos

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

I learned this at a forum some time back. And I have to say that it works really great. When promoting affiliate programs, I find that I get more sales per 100 visitors than any other techniques.

It works by creating a video review for an affiliate product, primarily with ebooks on ClickBank. But it does not mean that you have to stop there. You can use this technique with any product that you are promoting as an affiliate.

But I have to tell you that this will require some money to get started.

Review: Is Lynn Terry’s SelfStartersWeeklyTips.com Elite Member for You (SSWT Elite)?

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Before I tell you about SSWT Elite, let me tell you a little bit about my story and how I get started. It’s all related, I promise. Soon, you’ll know why I tell you this…

I remember when I started out years ago. I swayed here and there looking for the right way to make money online. I started out with a little luck when I saw my first ever website made $13 in commission from an affiliate sale. But after that, I got lost…

Back then, you hear this phrase being chime into your ears quite often, “The money is in the list”. What that means is that you need to build yourself a mailing list. A mailing list is almost like a guarantee to a long prosperous business life on the Internet. (that is the half true though)

While still building websites for affiliate commissions, I looked into the option of building my own mailing list. By the way, back then, you were also distracted by other huge online success like Yahoo, Hotmail and the hundreds of Internet business startups during the dot-com bubble. Almost everybody has a “great” idea for the Internet. So did I…
