ListQUIK is an online List Mailer/List Builder service. List Mailers are not a new thing to the Internet, and services similar to ListQUIK have been used around the world for a number of years. ListQUIK however stands out from the crowd. Why? Simply put, because it’s one of the best List Mailers the internet has ever seen, if not THE best.

First things first… what is a List Mailer / List Builder?

List Mailers are also referred to as Safelist Services around the Internet. They are programs that allow you to send regular Solo ad emails to their membership in exchange for you receiving emails from other users. Unlike traditional Safelist sites however, List Mailers often have a lot of extra perks and limits on the number of emails you will receive daily.

Why ListQUIK?

I mentioned that ListQUIK is potentially the best List Mailer available, and you’re no doubt wondering why. For a start, ListQUIK members on average receive no more than 4 emails each day, and all of them contain a link that gives you GUARANTEED cash or send credit prizes. Yes, I said that “G” word. Every email you receive will in turn give you either cash or credits. More importantly is that ListQUIK is transparent. The owner, Clint Clark is very open to the public and holds meetings daily with updates and new information. ListQUIK could be seen as the local store of Mailing List sites where the owner goes above and beyond to ensure you are happy with his business. Better still, there is no monthly fee!

One time Fee?

Yes indeed. For those wishing more features, bigger returns and the ability to mail to loads more people there are a range of upgrade options. The best part of ListQUIK though is that all the upgrades are one-time fees. There are no ongoing monthly subscriptions. You get more for a one time fee than other sites give you with a monthly, and those other sites… they charge you MORE per month than ListQUIK charges once. Go figure!

What about Compensation?

Some List Mailers do offer referral and compensation programs, and ListQUIK is no different. Being part of the “QUIK” family of sites and powered by SafeADzone (formerlly Revenue Magic), ListQUIK has a vast experience in the MLM and affiliate marketing space. The affiliate opportunity is designed with this industry in mind.

Essential SEO Strategies

Search engine optimization is a marketing technique to enhance the strategies and tactics used to improve a websites ranking in the search engines. There are strategies you can do in order to increase your sites ranking. If done effectively there should be an apparent increase in your sites placement on search engines.

The choice of your keywords is central for the success of your sites rankings. You need to begin to think about your conversion goals. An application such as ‘Google Analytics’ will help you with this, as it enables you to see which key phrases result in most conversion goals. Try and stay away from popular keywords that have thousands of competitive sites in search results. ‘AdWords keyword suggestion’ tool can assist you in your choice. This will suggest niche key phrases that will have a high search volume, and with low competition.

Site structure and content is imperative when trying to increase your ranking status. Having good, relevant and useful content will more than likely provoke search engines to rank your page higher in appropriate searches. Other sites will be more inclined to link to your pages, if the content is good, therefore further increasing your ranking. Regularly updated content will help, as many visitors like fresh content. This results in them visiting the site more often equalling to more visits, more links and more traffic. The structure of your site is valuable also. If your site’s navigation is simple, it will be easier for visitors and search engines to find your content. Include many links on your pages to other pages in your website, as this will enhance your navigation for visitors and search engines also.

Try not to duplicate any of your content on your pages, as search engines really dislike pages that have almost the same content on them. They will often give these pages a much lower ranking. Description and Keyword Meta tags are to not be forgotten either; your description tag should be a useful and convincing summary of the page content. This tag is used to display the summary of your page in search results, so be sure to make it full of central keywords. It is key however, to make sure your Keyword and Description Meta tags are different; if not, a search engine will see these as less important pages.

Lastly, it is essential to track your sites SEO performance. You can do this through ‘Google Webmaster’ tool, or ‘Google Analytics’. This will enable you to see your sites current ranking, and to see if there’s an increase or a decrease. This permits you make some changes to your strategies if needed.

Two New Bonsai: Melaleuca & Baeckea Virgata

While out at Bunnings yesterday I picked up 2 new bonsai trees for my collection. Both of them came from the general shrubs section and have no training or shape to them (as yet).

The first is a Melaleuca, or more specifically the “Little Red” variety, referring to the red coloured leaves. As you can see from the image below, this tree is very “raw” and needs a lot of work. It stands close to a foot tall so is a good size for me to start working on it right away. I’m yet to decide what style I will use, so will take some time to look at it before making a decision. Wendy suggested I work with a “wind-swept” look, which would work well, but am not entirely sure just yet.

Melaleuca Little Red Melaleuca Little Red

The other tree I picked up is this tiny little hedging shrub called a Baeckae Virgata. It is part of the Myrtaceae family of trees (which includes the Myrtle). The Baeckae has been used as bonsai by others, so figured I would give it a go. This is a dwarf species, so is very small. Saying that, as you can see from the photo below, it has a nice shape and a good size trunk considering the tree only stands 3 inches tall! I will probably work this one to an upright style, but will give it time to grow before making any serious decisions.

Baeckea Virgata

In other news, my Juniper has screamed that spring is approaching. Check out the new growth in the image below. I am going to re-pot this into a larger post in the coming weeks and then let it grow for another 6 – 12 months before making any big moves with it. The growth it’s had so far is excellent though, so i’m very pleased.


The Harland Boxwood also continues to grow and has new shoots coming up. A recent photo can be found in the photo gallery.

PPM Soccer: Training Basics Part III – Positions

As promised a few articles back, this brief post is going to touch on player positions in relation to training at the Powerplay Manager soccer game.

PPM Soccer PositionsTraining your soccer players does not need to be a headache. In fact, with a little preparation, training at PPM soccer can be an incredibly rewarding and exciting process.

In my last post I talked about attribute ratios and training. The ratios directly tie into the field positions, so before you can even start to train or plan your ratios, you first need to know WHERE your players are going to play. The PPM guide gives us a list of which attributes have influence on the primary role of a player, and clearly states that there are 2 positions for each “position”.

ie. Wing Forward, Center Forward, Wing Midfield, Center Midfield, Win Defense and Center Defense, plus of course the goalie.

so, how do you know what to train your players as?

The answer is not simple, and the only person who can answer it is you.. because only you have access to the details about your team. There are a few things we can share here though that might get you off to a good start.

  1. Players in the Universal position (U) are good on both sides, so are best played in the Center position on the field (as per the guide). That way they can move to the left or right and have an equal affect on the other players either way.
  2. Players move around the field during games and will play a positions attributes when in that position. ie. If a defender happens to be up in the center-forward position, the game will calculate his skills based on the center-forward position, NOT the defenders regular position. This is something that is hard to combat, however if you play an attacking game, take that into account with your defenders and midfielders.
  3. Shooting is not a secondary attribute, but is vital for all positions if you want to score goals!

But, how do you know if your player is a center or wing?

Again, there is no simple answer, but I want to give you an example based on one of my players, and the PPM guide.

The player is a midfielder who prefers the Right position.

His attributes:

Mid: 36 (95)
Pas: 26 (64)
Tec: 26 (74)
Spe: 25 (59)
Hea: 24 (47)

Now, we know that because he favours the Right side, he is possibly best played as a Wing Midfielder, however do his attributes support this?

The guide suggests that a Side Midfielder has a major influence of speed, medium influence of Passing and Technique and a small influence of Heading. Likewhys, a Center Midfield has a major influence from Passing and Technique and a small influence from Speed and Heading (no medium influence).

So, my player in each position would look like this:

Wing: 36 – 25 – 26 – 26 – 24 (Mid – Spe – Pas – Tec – Hea)
Center: 36 – 26 – 26 – 25 – 24 (Mid – Pas – Tec – Spe – Hea)

But, what about ratios?

Ahh, now this is where we go from simple logic to supposition, preferences and a few wild guesses. In short, as nobody knows the best ratios, what you read below is simply as an example and not to be read as fact in ANY way. I am going to go with a simple 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 ratio for this example as it’s easy to work out. If you assume that your players best skills is based on the lowest attribute, you would end up with these as his re-calculated ratios.

Wing: 33 – 24 – 16 – 16 – 8 (Mid – Spe – Pas – Tec – Hea)
Center: 34 – 25 – 25 – 8 – 8 (Mid – Pas – Tec – Spe – Hea)

What does this tell us?

Well, initially it tells us that this player would be good at both positions, but has a slight edge in the Center position. As far as training goes however, he would be much faster to train as a Wing because the only secondary attribute I would have to focus on right now would be his Speed.

So, we have a player who trains faster as a wing and prefers the right side… so I personally have him training as a right-side Midfielder who can play center if need be.

Now, you’re possibly thinking that this whole process is an aweful lot of stress to go through just to find a good position. In a way you’re right, however the process can be greatly simplified by use of a spreadsheet. More importantly, taking the time to look at your playes will help you know exactly how to train your players best.

And that right there is the key to the whole thing.. you MUST know what position your players are good at before you can really start to nail down any sort of full training system. Take the time, reap the rewards.
