Twitter Character Count Tip

Today, I’m going to tell you about a desktop tool for formatting your Twitter posts at exactly 140 characters, and added features for making your text messages, autoresponders and blogs look more professional. 

WordWrapMagic formats to any character length you want in a matter of seconds. So you can paste your tweet into the program and choose a line length of 140 characters.You can then do the editing to shorten or lengthen the tweet and visibly see how many characters you still need to delete or you can add.

Other ways to use the program – have you ever sent out a text broadcast and found the resulting message to look like this:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for buying my product. If you would
like more information about the product you can find us at and be
be sure to put in the subject
line that you need more information blah blah blah blah

Not very professional looking – that’s what the program will help you with – nice evenly spaced characters per line.

The second big feature is removing those Microsoft Word characters that don’t get changed when copying and pasting text into a blog. The result looks something like this:

Sounds of Spring: Did you know that birds make two different types of songs? One ‘song’ is a warning sound. It is flat, sharp and insistent. The other is it’s

Embarrassing, isn’t it?

I use this desktop tool daily in my VA business and my OBM business. Give it a try, it’s free to try or buy and have it forever!

Shoppingcart Subsciber Tip – keeping your shopping cart cost down.

Costs Going UpShoppingcart Subscribers – If you want to control the number of contacts in your database, i.e. prevent the number of contacts going over the next increase in payment level, you can manage your shoppingcart database by running a simple report and then taking action. In other words, deleting contacts that are no longer useful to you.

First, determine who you want to keep. I STRONGLY suggest keeping everyone who has made an order with you – you want to know who ordered what, when. So that is a given. Then, if you send out broadcasts and sequence mailings, you want to keep everyone who is still OPTED into their subscription and finally, you want to keep the contact record for all of your affiliates, whether they have purchased or not. So the people left over are the people who have opted in to receive a free something and then have opted not to receive any more emails from you, and who have never bought one of your products. Basically, if you are doing email marketing, there is no need to keep them in your database – you can’t send them an email.

This should work for most shoppingcarts (i.e. 1shoppingcart, Infusionsoft) available and is especially important if the next payment level depends on the number of contacts you have. At least you can avoid that increase in cost for as long as you can keep your database under the next level.

Apple Forgot Your Manual?!

What was the first thing you looked for when you opened your iPad box? Were you … surprised and disappointed that there was no instruction manual in there? Could Apple have made a mistake? Did the factory forgot to pack that slick glossy full-color instruction book?

Apple’s whole model is “ease of use”. The statement they tried to make was that you don’t even need a manual. And, maybe that’s true if you’re just going to use your iPad as an overpriced email checker. But, it’s not just a giant iPhone. You want to get more out of your iPad. You want to unlock it’s full potential. Here’s the guy who can help! IPad Pete
