We offer several co-operative advertising opportunities for indie business. We started co-op advertising back in 2005, after becoming frustrated with the astronomical expense of advertising our indie business. By sharing the expense with other indie businesses, we found we were able to get a much bigger bang for our buck. These co-ops grew so popular that over the years we launched several co-op advertising websites so more indie entrepreneur's could benefit. Learn more...

"I just purchased two of your e-books (Marketing With A Plan & Google Analytics). I am working through the Marketing With A Plan book and find it very easy (informative & fun as well) to follow. Your Coversion calculator would really help me out with developing my marketing plan for this year. Thank you so much for sharing this with us! "
- Zakia, Finest Expressions
"I've got too many blogs to follow these days but I always try to read yours. You've got so many of these to-the-point and useful posts and I always look forward to reading them. Your blog has simply become my own check list of things I could do to improve my site and my business (if only there were more hours in my day!)"
- Doris, Hop Frog Pond
"I start reading your articles, then I find myself going through the archives looking for other good stuff to read. Before I know it, Iíve spent 30 minutes here (when I should have been doing something else)!"
- Josh, joshsworld.com
"THANK YOU for an honest look at how real business works."
"Meredith, Iím so glad I met you! I have implemented and studied little by little what you have taught and by golly! Itís working. And it does take time and you do have to maintain it. I thought, post a website and walk away. But noooo, it needs to be nourished and maintained and researched and tweaked and on and on. You woke me up to new frontiers, Iíve reached new potential sales and I thank you for that!"
