Weekly Roundup Volume 3

by | Dec 13, 2013 | Business, weekly roundup

weekly roundup volume 3This week flew by so fast for me. Did it for you too?  This post will be a little shorter than the past 2 weeks.  Shall we get right to it?

This is my new weekly blog series, with a collection of favorite finds I’ve discovered throughout the week & things I’ve shared in social media. Most often they’ll be free, or on some kind of crazy special deal / time limit.


In the midst of a super busy week I decided to add an extra thing to my “to do list” and brought back something I started last year.  12 Days of Christmas!  It’s a contest where I’ll be giving away a prize every day until Christmas (and testing out the Contest Plugin I bought this summer). Be sure to check it out. There are some amazing prizes.

My newest post on Lifehack was crowd sourced by a whole lot of Bschoolers a few weeks ago.  It was so much fun to put together & even more fun to share on social media last night, when it went live. Go check it out?

WP Simple Split – a new WordPress plugin that I can’t wait to try out this week ($17)

WP Simple Split

I’m most interested in these features:

  • multi-theme functionality (people often ask if it’s possible to have more than one theme on a wordpress site. Now I can say “yes”)
  • split testing & tracking (there are other tools for this, but I’m intrigued by their approach)
  • buy button testing
  • the exit redirect & timer are a nice option too

KinstantDashboard – a marketing tool for Kindle book publishers

Last week I asked Rachel Rofe if I could take a peak at the backend of Kinstant Dashboard & she graciously said yes. Because of my crazy week I didn’t get a chance to peak at it until last night. I sure wish I had more time to play with it. And even more, I wish I had my own books to upload and test. Soon, soon!  In the meantime, I was able to answer a couple of questions … take a look here at the video & leave me a comment if you’d like me to dig any further? Take a look and see if it’s right for you.  The price is really awesome!
