GDPR feels like a messy burden for most website owners. Most owners aren’t likely to do anything untoward with data, but the many suffer because of the few. On the flip side, making it clear how data will be used and the ability to make an informed decision about your behaviour is probably a good thing.
This post provides a list of things to do on your site and provides a multitude of ways those things can be done. So many guides out there have been written by plugin and service sellers who are simply self-serving. This isn’t helpful. It’s over-complicated and biased.

Launching products on Amazon is a topic that will get debated over and over again. Fundamentally, there’s an algorithm, and that algorithm reacts to signals. People buying your product, even at a discount, is a signal. And hey, it’s not like “promotional launch offers” are a new concept to the retail industry as a whole! It’s practically standard operating procedure!
But, cut the debate for a second. The reason why so much debate goes on is primarily because people are in search of “The perfect solution” which basically costs no money or effort and gives you the best results. Yeah…. that sounds realistic. So instead, we focus on all the negatives, search for proof, debate back and forth about the ONE rationalisation that proves your own world view. This is 100% natural human behaviour.
I am a fan of discount launches (get that out of the way), however, I am not blind to the negative side effects that we’ve felt as a result of pursuing that strategy and that’s what this post is about. Continue reading “Negative Side Effects of Deep Discount Launches [SCUM-SUCKING Hijackers]”

So here’s a quick cheat sheet guide on the steps to take to perform an uninstall of WordPress from your hosting account. Continue reading “Uninstalling WordPress for a Fresh Install of… WordPress!”
Time is always pressured, and the ability to break a task such as building a brand new website into bite-sized chunks is essential. This is where staging sites come in, or temporary domains, or reference domains, or sub-directories, or sub-domains…. You’re potentially starting to get the picture here that this is about as clear as mud in most cases. Above all else, it comes with an overall feel that someone with more coding knowledge should really be dealing with it!
I’ve looked at a number of guides out there with a focus on “Ease of Implementation” and found a few good step by step instructions. Continue reading “How to build a new WordPress site while the old site is live”
