Good news- I’ve finally finished a brand new template which is SUPER AWESOME 🙂
Check it out!
The bad news? I can’t think of a good name for it.
So if you can think of anything awesome that would fit this template, please post a comment below. And if I pick your name, you’ll get this one for free before anyone else can even buy it.
Whooaah!! Thanks for all the amazing ideas! It wasn’t easy picking the winner and it came down to “Shattered” or “Altitude”.
But in the end I decided that Shattered Blue is what describes it the best. So with that said…
The new template shall be called Shattered Blue as suggested by Jack Wells.
This is probably a biggie, since I’ve received a number of calls from people asking me if they can change the white board of logos I have in my templates.
The short answer is YES!
The long answer is also “yes”, but I’ll get in to a little more detail to get you up to speed about them “image spots”.
How To Spot Customizable Images In Templates
Here are a couple of samples, which should make it perfectly clear.
In some templates you can just leave the image I have in there and upload nothing of your own. For example, the money image in Ancient Gold.
How To Create The Perfect Image
It’s easy. First the size- make it 800 px in width and 450 px in height. But that’s just a guideline. Feel free to use any other size as we’ll do the resizing to make it look perfect.
Here are a couple of ideas for things you can display in the image spot:
A stock photo
A screen shot of your site/service/software
Just a plain background and some text
In some cases you might want to upload a transparent image. But before you do, check if the background color in that video is not the same as your image.
If you have one of those e-covers, it’s best to upload the flat version or a version with no reflections.
In case of a stock photo, try to use a photo that is at least 400 pixels wide. Any less than that and it will look pixelerated in the video. But don’t go overboard with the 1600px photos (they typically cost more).
As I said- the best is to use a photo between 400 to 800 pixels in width.
Try to keep the total file size of all images you’re uploading under 2mb. If you don’t the submission may not go through.
All in all- use your common sense to decide what image would look best in your video.
I hope you found that helpful and if you haven’t claimed your video just yet, this may save you the phone call 🙂
It’s been a good year so far for me and I hope you can say the same about yourself.
Today I wanted to talk a little bit about multiple streams of income or as people say “don’t put all your eggs in the same basket”.
If you’re like me, you probably do quite a bit of marketing on line and you’re involved in more than one product out there.
The good news are- in case something happens to one of your businesses, you’ll always have those others.
The bad news?
Well, for one- you may be spreading yourself too thin. At least I was.
And to be brutally honest- I’m not always able to give my best working at 6 billion different products in 5 billion completely different niches.
For a while you can provide amazing value in all the stuff you do, but it takes a lot of work and more importantly- it’s quite a bit of stress. And you can bur out real quick.
No fun in that.
Well, here’s a tip.
Try focusing on one of your businesses which you like. For me it’s KSV. And instead of developing a bunch of products in other niches, I’ll expand the business I geniunly enjoy.
Add more products, more services and more content in one of your niches and you won’t be putting all your eggs in one basket.
One more thing you can expect to achieve by digging deep is some kind of credibility and status. Many people know you, but if you focus all your energy on one thing, you might earn the so called ‘guru’ status in your field.
I’m not saying you should abandon all your other businesses. I won’t be doing that myself too. I’ll just be focusing more on what I enjoy 🙂
