    Hey Steph-

    Your writing efforts are never in vain but I wanted to give you a quick example of how you helped me today.

    Having read these 10 steps... it reminded that I needed to update my web site's testimonial page... I contacted some clients (who like me couldn't get past the fact that the 4th fell on a Wednesday and thus "felt" like today was just a slow day at the office) and got their updated testimonials. Likely I'll get a few more this week too so thanks for the kick in the pants.

    But I sure wish you'd stop wearing those pointy steel tipped boots!

    Best always,
    - Peter

      Hi Stephanie,

      Another great article, as usual.

      Yes, I've had current info and links to online videos (software tutorials, etc.) that I'm currently on for some time now. Trick is remembering to update it!

      Thanks for all your marketing resources.

      You're awesome.
