I hum this song whenever marketing problems are keeping me awake at night, thanks to Maria Rainer and The Sound of Music.

Best-marketing practices Julie Andrews would endorse:

Text-heavy emails,

With links to tweets that are funny.

Blog posts you post once, that forever drive money.

Forms with less than 3 fields, and no website pop-ups,

Personalized recommendations,

And social photos with cuddly cats and pups.

Using Google Adwords for bofu searches & also Bing for retargeting,

These are a few of my favorite marketing things.

Water break.

Giving away entire ebooks’ content without forcing a download,

Mobile-friendly websites with light images & cached code.

Giving customers great prices – attached with no subscription strings,

These are a few of my favorite things.

When a Youtube video is long,

When sales emails bombard me in the spring,

When I’m feeling mad,

I simply remember my favorite marketing things

And then I don’t feel so bad.

Please support my blog because it helps:

A lot of marketing advice online is written by freelance writers, who are paid to research topics and share tips, while having limited-to-no actual marketing experience. When you take advice from these folks, it’s like taking your sick dog to a person who’s read a book about dog surgery, versus taking your dog to a vet who’s had proper schooling and years of experience. 9/10 times your dog is dying with the reader, bruh! Don’t let your marketing die.

Would you be willing to contribute to my work so you don’t miss out on new marketing ideas? There are a few ways you can help:

1. Buy a used book I’ve read from my shop.
