If you’ve recently invested in a copy of the recent CMS Infusion software or are planning to setup a membership site, or build a social networking/community site, you’d want to take a close at a forum product launched today by forum expert Ryan Chua.
When I was setting up my first forum, I approached fellow Internet Marketer Ryan Chua. Ryan’s one of the founders of BMW-Sg.com, one of the most profitable automotive-focused forums on the net.
He helped set up my vBulletin-based forum and configured plugins to optimize its traffic visibility. Along the way, he’s also helped a number of other established Internet Marketers develop their forum and community strategies.
If you’ve plans to add a community elements to your site, you might want to check out the free installment of the forum guide that Ryan has released.
The 80-page forum guide gives you a breakdown of forum setup, factors in your planning process and compares various forum solutions. You likely already have this in your hosting account from the likes of Bluehost, but from what I’ve seen, the documentation thus far tends to be very technical or sketchy. Ryan’s guide brings it down a notch so it’s more easily accessible.

When it rains, it pours. I got tagged twice today with this meme making the rounds by PlanetAndrea and CasThompson.
Like a game of ‘Pass the Message’ which you play in a big group, depending on who you check out, the meme is known as:
At first look, it seems like Shoemoney and DaveN are on to the right thing. Then again, it could mean that DaveN is good at following formats after being tagged by the Shoemeister.
So this freeform means you have the right to rename the meme (Master Rename Rights so to speak).
Instructions: (Especially for those I’m tagging)
From what I gather, you are supposed to:

victims friends to pass this labor of love to.

This post isn’t about Internet Marketing per se.
At the same time, it’s bigger than Internet Marketing and at the same time, will play a large part in whether you will be a success, a failure, or an Internet Marketing Superstar.
My buddy, Rachit, just pubished a post about his travails as an online entrepreneur. It’s quite a good read. Head over to: A Tough Ending To My First Year As An Entrepreneur
Another buddy of mine, Ryan, faced a similar situation a couple of months ago: Do what you love, love what you do.
All of us will hit stumbling blocks in the course of daily life. Whether it’s in our career, in a relationship or in a business venture.
Anyone can do well when the chips are in their favor.
But (as you’ve read before) a person’s true character manifests itself (more…)
My buddy, Ryan Chua, is on the cusp of making a big step.
Exactly what that step is, I’m not exactly sure.
He may not be totally aware either.
Going by his recent ruminations, starting with his post: In Search of Excellence (which was penned just after his 24th birthday), he notes: (more…)
