How Many Emails Is Too Many Emails? – Autoresponder Abuse

By Yaro Starak
December 28th, 2005

I just unsubscribed from two email lists. One was from a well established online marketer with credibility and a huge following. I never purchased from him but I joined his email list to test him out. After submitting my address I was immediately sent a bunch of materials and a lengthy email. I saved them for reading later. A day … Read the rest of this entry »

Happy Holidays & Small Business Branding Is Go

By Yaro Starak
December 26th, 2005

I hope everyone following the Christmas tradition had a good day and a happy Hanukkah for my Jewish friends celebrating too! Most of you are probably on vacation from work but I’m sure there are a few hardcore bloggers and entrepreneurs out there still sitting behind the computer making things happen, just like me.

Acquisition Of SmallBusinessBranding.com

By Yaro Starak
December 21st, 2005

Yesterday morning Michael Pollock skyped me. I thought he was going to offer some feedback on my last article titled – Small Business Branding – It’s Not We, It’s Me – since he manages the SmallBusinessBranding.com site and clearly this article covered an area of his interest. However I was incorrect, he was in fact looking for some feedback about … Read the rest of this entry »

Small Business Branding – It’s Not “We”, It’s “Me”

By Yaro Starak
December 19th, 2005

I came through business school with a very “corporatized” feeling of how business works. Most of the textbooks at university are written with big business as case studies and examples to demonstrate the theories. I felt that in order to run a business, even a small business, you should project the attitude of a big business. If you are planning … Read the rest of this entry »

No More AdSense

By Yaro Starak
December 13th, 2005

I’m going to be brutally honest with you – I don’t like Google AdSense. I admire what Google has created with the AdWords/AdSense program. I admire those bloggers and website owners that make thousands of dollars from AdSense. I intend to one day draw extensive income from AdSense as I build a website portfolio, but for Entrepreneur’s Journey AdSense is … Read the rest of this entry »

By Yaro Starak
December 11th, 2005

I recently made one aspect of my online business more efficient. This technique demonstrates the power of an email autoresponder. In this case I turned something that used to be a relatively mundane manual business annoyance into a resource. Best of all it took about 10 minutes to get set-up and it’s been doing a great job ever since.

Content Bids For Google AdWords

By Yaro Starak
December 3rd, 2005

A couple of weeks ago I attended a small course on AdWords run in Brisbane as part of an Australia wide Google University tour.
