Step 5: DRIVE MORE CHEAP AND *FREE* TRAFFIC

Use strategies like article-sharing and press releases to drive even MORE people to your site.

Step 7: FIND *MORE* PRODUCTS FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS

Offer your customers even more products you know they want to buy.

Step 8: GET OTHER PEOPLE TO SELL FOR YOU

Recruit an army of salespeople to sell your products on their websites (and you won’t have to pay them a dime unless they help you make a sale!)

Step 9: GROW YOUR BUSINESS *BIGGER*

Create dozens of new streams of income to multiply your revenues.

Step 10: USE HOT NEW TOOLS TO CREATE A BUZZ

Bring visitors back to your site again and again using the hottest new tools and techniques.

 
3. Nutrition Tip – Sugar Free Sweets
 

Sugar free sweets –can you have your cake and lose weight, too? Sugar-free foods are great for people who want the taste but not the sugar of cake, cookies, ice cream, candies and other sweets. But some sugar-free foods contain almost as many calories as standard foods … and not all artificial sweeteners are created equal: Acesulfame K and saccharin may promote cancer and sorbitol can cause diarrhea.

 
4. Word of the Week
 

logy • \LOH-ghee\ • adjective

: marked by sluggishness and lack of vitality : groggy

Example Sentence:
I was feeling logy after eating such a big meal, so I decided to take a brief nap.

Did you know?
Based on surface resemblance, you might guess that "logy" (also sometimes spelled "loggy") is related to "groggy," but that’s not the case. "Groggy" ultimately comes from "Old Grog," the nickname of an English admiral who was notorious for his cloak made of a fabric called grogram — and for adding water to his crew’s rum. The sailors called the rum mixture "grog" after the admiral. Because of the effect of grog, "groggy" came to mean "weak and unsteady on the feet or in action." No one is really sure about the origin of "logy," but experts speculate that it comes from the Dutch word "log," meaning "heavy." Its first recorded use in English, from an 1847 London newspaper, refers to a "loggy stroke" in rowing.

6. Do You Know…
 
On this day:

  • Scientists Announce Birth of Dolly, the Cloned Sheep (1997)
    Dolly was the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell through the somatic cell nuclear transfer technique, in which the nucleus of an egg cell is replaced by the nucleus of a cell from the organism to be cloned. In successful cases, the egg cell develops into a healthy fetus, but the success rate of cloning has been low. Of 277 eggs, only 29 created viable embryos; just three of these embryos survived until birth, and Dolly was the only one to survive to adulthood.
