    Greetings and Holiday Cheer

    Greetings and Holiday Cheer

    Hey everyone, been a while since the last Podcast Episode/post!

    I wanted to take some time in this Episode to explain what’s been going on and some of the reasons for the hiatus and let you know I’m thinking about you guys and am thankful you are out there!

    I’d also be remiss if I didn’t at least mention all the existing deals I’m aware of, for tools that I utilize and recommend.

    Thanks for being out there and hope you have a great upcoming holiday season!

    Black Friday Online Specials

    GeneratePress Theme – This is the new theme that I use on all of my sites.  It is so easy to use and customize and it is fully mobile responsive.  Grab this 25% off deal while it lasts.

    Long Tail Pro – 50% off yearly plays, 30% off monthly plans and my favorite deal is still the $47 discounted one-time fee for up to 10,000 search results with no expiration and access to their Long Tail University training program as well.

    GetResponse – My favorite email marketing platform. This is a great opportunity to get up to 40% off for life!  This deal ends as soon as they get 1,000 new customers.

    NameCheap – Up to 97% off domain registrations and 27% off domain transfers.  I utilize them for all of my domain registrations and renewals and love the inexpensive costs, free domain privacy and consistent low renewal fees as well.

    Amazon Boot Camp – 20-50% off Video training courses for selling on Amazon, through the Amazon FBA program, from Cliff and Jessica Larrew.  You can also try out their free Amazon FBA starter course here.

    AppSumo – They always run some great deals for Black Friday/Cyber Monday.  One everyone looks forward to is the Deposit Photos special.  That is currently live now and for $49 you get 100 image downloads from their millions of high quality, high resolution images.  The image credits never expire.  Just 49 cents per image and you have full commercial use for whatever purpose you’d like.

    Web Hosting Hub – The lowest price all year for the web host that I love and have been with since 2011!

    New Tools, Podcast Rejection and Tidying Up

    In today’s Podcast Episode, I bring you a deal on an existing tool you guys know and love and also give you some additional details on a new tool to help you bring in more money as an Amazon affiliate.

    I also tell you the full story of how after 4+ years, this Podcast was “rejected” by the Apple Podcasts/iTunes and how to avoid this as an existing or potential new Podcaster.

    We also talk about the “Joy of Tidying Up” when it comes to your digital footprint and your existing workspace and websites.

    Be on the lookout for some upcoming changes to the look and feel of things going forward on the site and please let me know if you notice any issues.

    Also, be aware of a new feature in WordPress 5.1 called Site Health, that will prevent you from installing new plugins if your PHP version is older than the version required for the plugin.

    Be sure to listen in to the Podcast for full details!

    Enrich Your Mind

    Enrich Your Mind

    In today’s Podcast episode, I reveal a new resource to enrich your mind and contribute to your success.

    Be sure to listen in for full details!

    Items Mentioned on The Podcast

    Recommended Reading List – You can find this new resource here, at the tab on the top of the site labeled “Books” or by just typing the short link http://nichesitetools.com/books

    The list is starting out with 4 must read options and I’ll be adding more as time goes on.  If you have any suggestions for possible future consideration, be sure drop me a comment or email and let me know.

    New Amazon Affiliate Tool – I’m currently testing a cool new tool to help Amazon affiliates, similar to EazyAzon, but it is much easier to use with lots of great features not available anywhere else.

    For example, here is one of my favorite feature so far, the Product Showcase box…

    This super simple to use option pulls in all the relevant data from a product listing on Amazon automatically and you have full control over what is shown and how things appear.

    You can display all the reviews for the product right there in the post, which is normally not possible due to Amazon terms of service, but because all of this data is pulled directly from Amazon via their API, everything is fully compliant.

    Looking forward to bringing you more details on the product soon, but you can also check it out right away by clicking here.  I think you will really like this one!

The Best of the Best

The Niche Site Tools Podcast is really enjoyable with lots of helpful information in every episode. I have applied much of what I learned from this podcast and the companion website to my own site. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and unlike other podcasts in this category, the purpose is to provide solid information to help listeners as opposed to trying to sell some other product or service. In fact, I once emailed Chris a question and he went above and beyond to help me with my issue. If you are building a site or blog, I strongly recommend this podcast.
