    Hello, Barbara
    Wow! You have great content on your site. Thanks for the amazing value you are providing here. I will visit here often.

    Right now, I’m playing catch-up with the QSC Week 3 tasks.

    Again, thanks for giving your time to help us out!

      Thank you, Susette! I’m delighted to hear it is helpful. Let me know when you’re back this way…

    Hi Barbara!

    Fantastic post! You have so much detail and explanation…wish I had read your blog before I did my opt in form! I did not use the plug in or opt in form in wordpress but did everything through Aweber. I had a hard time with where to put my free report and finally figured out the media file, purely by accident! Finally, thanks for mentioning my blog post! I will revise mine to do the same…because you fill in a lot of the blanks where I had problems! Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing more of your posts!

    Hi Barbara:

    I’m Helen from QSC 3.0. This is a very helpful article on how to set up the optin form. I like the way you structure it so that people can follow you step by step. I’ll be visiting often!

    1. Barbara O'Toole says:

      Thank you, Helen! I’m a former tech writer and although it was a job that I was very dis-engaged from, it sure was good training on how to write how-to’s!

        You’re welcome Barbara. Keep up the good work! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great tips Barbara! Your step by step instructions takes the guesswork out of setting up a web form. Thanks for the great post and keep’em coming.

      Great, Annette! I love your “Sunshine Lady!”

    Hello Barbara,

    A very nice ‘how I did it’ tutorial and put over so well that everyone can get an understanding of your how and why. YOu have a gift there for converting the technical to the simpler (but no more simple than necessary).

    What will week 4 bring us? We don’t know, but we’re all ready to face it together. With mutual support like we have within the group, how can we fail! (By not taking action, of course -But everyone will, because we have the encouragement of the others).

      Hey, Steven, thank you for the compliment!

      When I was Operations Manager for a direct marketing firm, I’d consult with the independent programmer and then go show my staff how to implement his new programs. He paid me the same compliment. He said I had a knack for breaking down complex systems into simple steps.

      I know it’s always important for me to have the “why” so I like to include it whenever possible.

      I look forward to tomorrow….!

    Hi Barbara,
    Thank you…That’s what I did without realizing it…LOL….I love the post, you put it in simple terms and that’s refreshing…I’m going to book mark this page for future reference, that’s how good I think it is…Thanks again!!!


    1. Barbara O'Toole says:

      Derrick, that’s great to hear! Feel free to comment when you come back. This is set up so after your comments are approved initially, they remain on auto-approve!

    Hi Barbara, Great content here, and I am sure there are lots of people from the Quick Start Challenge and elsewhere who will find this information useful. This is some of the stuff that perhaps is missing from that training course, but I guess they can’t cover all of it! I am OK with the technicals on my site, but somewhat lacking in creativity to put it into practice!

    1. Barbara O'Toole says:

      Hi, Richard: Thank you for your comments. I doubt very much you’re lacking in creativity! You’re the first one to mention anything about what may have been omitted from our training! LOL My thoughts exactly – and, uhm, I’m very creative! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Lynne says:

    Great article and am very interested in your topic ‘publishing’, so I’m sure I can learn a lot from you… What you’ve done with this post is something I had in mind to do, in particular to help those who were less familiar with the whole process… Just didn’t get to it… Still trying to catch up with things (including commenting on other people’s sites)… Also, thanks for stopping by my site and commenting… I will definitely be adding your site to my ‘watch’ list and stopping by from time to time… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Barbara O'Toole says:

      Hey, Lynne – thank you for your comments! I’ve gotten good response from this post and I’ll be doing more such “Tutorials.”


  13. Duane Reeve says:

    Hi Barbera This is a great simple to follow “how to” article. It may seem easy, but writing Internet Marketing How To content without getting too technical is a skill-set in it’s own right. You’ve done a great job ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Barbara O'Toole says:

      Hey, Duane, I really appreciate your comment! Someone else made the same observation (I think Steven Lucas). Yeah, I think product creation is definitely a good direction for me.
