Apostrophe Misuse

OK. This is easy.

Ownership:
Adam’s blog – The blog belonging to Adam.
The dog’s bone – the bone belonging to the dog.

Contraction:
I can’t rather than I cannot.
I don’t rather than I do not.

The only slightly tricksy thing if is more than one of something:

The dogs’ bone
The companies’ logos

and here is the good porn example:

members’ area – the area belonging to more than one member.

member’s area would be if you only had one member, and I certainly hope that isn’t the case.

Exception to the rule

Its and It’s

its = possession
It’s = contraction (it is)

APOSTROPHES ARE NEVER USED TO SHOW PLURALS

DVD’s, CD’s etc is WRONG (DVDs and CDs would be correct).
1000′s of bargains (1000s of bargains)
Menu’s printed to order

PS This will not actually help you with sales, but it will stop you annoying me. :)

Link exchanges for adult blogs

Hi.

Got an adult blog? Want to do link exchanges?

Email me or something.

Mispellins (sic) are good for google…

Hello

I did an experiment and started adding some misspelt words to an adult blog. It has resulted in getting number one in Google France for that term.

Ashlynn Brooke is a famous contract star with New Sensations. I made some posts with Ashlynn Brook (NB missing an e off the end) and hey presto, I’m number one on Google. (France).

Now, let’s see if I can convert the froggy traffic…methinks a French language landing page might be a good idea.

Productivity tip for adult blogging

Today’s tip is quick and simple. Go and buy MarsEdit.

OK, I will explain why. It is an application that you can write blog posts in. So far, so VERY dull, Damian. Why is this cool? I hear you scream at your screen in frustration.

Well, it allows you to post to multiple blogs within one app. It’s got a lovely interface. Does insto-previews based on your blog, so you know if a pic will fit, etc. The uploading is nice.

Oh, and of course it works offline. So you can write lots of lovely blog posts on the train, then publish them when you get to wifi.

Go try the 30 day trial here.

Mac only. There are probably similar Windows apps, but who cares.

Free book to make you think…

Seth Godin is great at making you think. Yes, he is a *shudder* mainstream marketer, but his is great and that’s that.

Check out a free ebook he put out:

Read it. It’s lots of different people’s thoughts on What Matters Now…

New Episode of SMASH HIT PODCAST about porn and beer

Vegas is coming up

So this year, why not get some cool business cards done?

Mistakes usually made:

- Crap stock. Really weak stock just makes you look cheap

- Gmail address. I will never do business with you if you cannot afford a domain

- Too small a font

Here, have some inspiration:

Try something different. Try to stand out.

Big porn review site list

OK, it’s not *my* list but merely one I nicked from GFY. But I thought some people that read this little lovely blog may not read the zoo, so here is a long list of sites that review porn sites.

You should submit your porn site to these places. All of them. May take a while, but heck, it’s what I am doing today!

Use Twitter to find out when to send your email newsletter

Now this is brilliant. Use Twitter to find out when to send your email newsletter. Obviously, which day of the week and what time you send your email newsletters can change how effectively they work. But when to send? Loads of testing right? Nope.

Just pop along to http://search.twitter.com and type in some keywords related to your niche and porn in general. Note the RSS feed for this query. Pop that into your google reader account (get one here if you don’t have one).

Click show details the top right and you see a blank graph. After a few days this will show some fantastic data on what day of the week, month and time that people were talking about your niche.

This data tells you when you should be sending out your newsletter. Clever, eh?
