Anyone who follows this blog will have noticed that it hasn’t been updated for some time now. This is mainly because I got a new day-job last summer and things in my life have changed somewhat as a result. I haven’t had much time to work on Simple Software Maker until now, and I’m just going through the testing process before it is released.
The good news is that you will be able to get version 1.0 of Simple Software Maker at absolutely no cost. It will be the full release of v1.0 – no time-limits, crippling of features, or limited saves. It will contain some disabled features, but they are features that are being added for version 1.1.
So is it really free? Consider it a G.I.F.T!
G.I.F.T stands for “Get It For Tweeting”, and you will be able to get your own, free copy of Simple Software Maker simply by Tweeting [Read more...]
Development of Simple Software Maker continues. In the last couple of days, I have added Icons to the new snippet library feature so that it is easier to see at a glance what type of content the snippets have. At present, the icon is library based rather than snippet based, so each library should really only contain one type of content. However, this might change later to allow mixed libraries (eg PHP and HTML).
Another improvement is the use of Windows “special” folders. previous software products that I have released have tended to keep everything together in the application folder, including temporary working folders, etc.
When Windows Vista and its successor, Windows 7 came along, this caused some problems meaning that the setup installer had to make the working folders writeable and with permissions for users to actually access them. Simple Software Maker now uses the guideline [Read more...]
In my last post, I mentioned that I am currently developing an application generator that lets you create your own software without having to learn how to program.
Due to various commitments, I haven’t had a huge amount of time to spend on its development, but I have added a few new features.
Most notably is the Snippet Library. This is a collection of useful blocks of text that can be pasted right into the program templates that you create using Simple Software Maker. New libraries of Snippets can be added at any time, making Simple Software Maker expandable without having to upgrade to a newer version.
Another new feature that has been added to [Read more...]
Anyone who has spent any time on this blog will know that I have been promoting MYOS (Make Your Own Software) as a useful product for anyone who wants to make their own software products to sell.
MYOS is a good product. My friend Dan Blackburn has used it to make several software programs with which he has made a fair amount of money. Certainly more than enough to pay for MYOS many times over.
The thing about MYOS is that like any software generator, it is quite limited. Its output consists of a single file of text, such as a web page or a sales letter. Furthermore, MYOS has remained unchanged since it was released many years ago.
Dan and I realised that MYOS could be a whole lot more if the owners cared to develop it further, but we don’t think that is going to happen. [Read more...]
In the past, I have promoted Make Your Own Software (AKA MYOS), which is an excellent tool for creating your very own software products that you can sell or give away as you please.
The problem with MYOS is that it was written quite some time ago and has not been updated for years. Mike Chen was the original creator of MYOS but he evidently sold it on when he thought it had reached the end of its useful life for him. That doesn’t mean it’s not a useful product any more. It is. One of my colleagues is still making software with MYOS and selling it or giving it away as bonuses for other products.
The sales page for MYOS is a little strange. You have to go through a questionnaire to see whether you “qualify” to be an owner of MYOS. The whole point of [Read more...]

When it comes to making money online, Affiliate Marketing is one of the most exciting business opportunities you could get into. There are not many ways in which you can actually start a business of your own without investing any serious money. It sounds too good to be true, so maybe we’d better take a closer look.
Affiliate programs are free to join, but you still need to approach the idea of Affiliate Marketing with caution as it is not as simple as it sounds. It has been well publicised that over 95% of beginning online marketers fail to make any money, or even make a loss, so let’s examine the factors in Affiliate Marketing that may contribute to your success or failure.
It stands to reason that it is much easier to make money with affiliate programs when you are selling products for which there is a demand. [Read more...]
If you build up several income streams, each turning in a decent amount of money, your lifestyle will improve and you will want to earn even more money. That’s human nature. So where do we go from there? Of course we could spend our time setting up even more income streams as before, but the more you set up, the more maintenance they will need, and the more of your time they will consume.
So the next step is to move over from being an affiliate to being a vendor. Basically get your own products together and have other affiliates selling them for you. This is the real key to making money online. Think about it – as an affiliate, you are forever seeking new buyers and sending them to the vendor’s site. The vendor makes the sale and if he’s doing it right, [Read more...]
If you’ve been following this series, you will have got a system working and earning you money. You will have scaled it up to increase the revenue, and you should be feeling fairly comfortable.
So what do you do next? Well there’s one good thing about being in that comfortable position where you have money coming in with only a little maintenance work to keep it ticking over. Although you shouldn’t take your eyes off the ball for too long, you now have a little more freedom to look around for other income streams.
Don’t wait until your first income stream starts to dry up; you need to get the next one up and running long before that happens.
So look around for a completely different niche. You can apply the same techniques that you used for the first one, and duplicate what you already have in place. [Read more...]
If you have an affiliate campaign up and running, the next step is to scale them up. That’s the only way you’re going to move up from earning a few hundred dollars per month to earning thousands per month.
Strange as it may seem, getting that first $1000 per month is actually a lot more difficult than getting $10,000 per month. The reason is that it takes time and effort to establish a working technique that will bring in that first $1000 per month. Once you have that cracked, all you need to do is scale it up.
It’s all about increasing the amount of traffic that you get to your site. Assuming that you have tried several different methods of getting traffic, you should have some idea of which ones are the most effective for you. Don’t get rid of the least effective ones unless they [Read more...]
