McAfee has stopped redirecting traffic to their shopping portal from your link.

However, the yahoo shopping cart is still showing as yellow (warning).

Remember, in order to see this for yourself on your website, you have to first install the software.

I have checked over 20 of our customers websites and have found ALL of them still have this warning. This has really gone on far too long.

In an effort to assist you increase your sales, we are interviewing this evening UpSellIt.com who will be providing Yahoo Store owners information on abandoned cart issues.

Join us live at 6:00 PM Eastern (3:00 PM Pacific) on WsRadio.com

We also will have Michael Vorel from VastPlanet with us as and will have live conference coverage of Affiliate Summit 2008!

Sincerely,

Shawna Fennell

Thank you McAfee for your Site Advisor. Thanks to you,
Yahoo Store owners are potentially losing thousands and thousands of dollars
DAILY.

McAfee has marked yahoo.net as the following:



This is absolutely ridiculous and has gone on for far too
long.

Let me explain the problem. When your customers go to your

website and they place something in your cart, they see a warning from McAfee.



This is completely unacceptable.


Check out the Site Advisor Page on Yahoo


You can install SiteAdvisor and see for yourself as well by downloading their program

http://www.siteadvisor.com/


Oh and before you think this is only a cart issue, think again.

Check out this out in Google:Do a search right now for site:yahoo-net and pick any keyword.

This is what you will see if you choose gifts.


All Yahoo Stores listed in Google with the yahoo.net marked with big yellow marks.

Read this post for more information on the topic that was written August 1st.

McAfee needs to get this fixed.... FAST

Join us this evening for an interview with Control Scan on the Power Hour. I think you will start seeing their name more and more.

This summer I have actually enjoyed some much-needed time off. In fact, it really has been the first time I have taken a "vacation" in 10 years.

Those of you that travel with children know that it really isn't a vacation though when you travel with children *laughing*

So first I have to say thank you to my amazing team at 1 Choice. Without them, there is no way possible that I could travel for pleasure or for conferences. They have stepped in and stepped up in more ways than one and I could not be any prouder or more appreciative.

The time away has given me great new ideas for education that I am looking forward to putting into place.

Stay tuned for more details as the next new e-book comes out this Friday!

P.S. Make sure to check out the clepto fox we met in Colorado :)

In today's economy, you can't afford skimping out on your customer service. Gas prices are rising, people are being laid off, and the economy doesn't look good. We hear this on the news daily.

Your business can survive during this recession. You have to stand out above the crowd. You have to provide your customers with top notch customer service. You can't always be the lowest price, someone will always undercut you.

Your website needs to be professional, your website needs to portray that you provide top notch customer service, your website needs to make your customers feel secure, and most of all your website needs to convert visitors into buyers!

Last week we spoke we Ordermotion on the Yahoo Store Power Hour about the importance of automating your order processing. Fantastic show with fantastic amount of information!! Make sure to check it out if you haven't already at http://powerhourradioshow.com/6-30-08.html

In just a few moments we will be interviewing Ring Central about the importance of having a toll free number. Have you ever wanted a service that allowed you to set up departments but thought it was too expensive? It's not! Departments can help you gain control over your customer service! PLUS we are going to learn about a new feature called Click To Call. A MUST HAVE!!

So listen live at 6:00 PM ET (in 10 minutes) at http://www.wsradio.com

Or you can catch the archive tomorrow at http://www.powerhourradio.com

Another great email came my way today from Worldwide Brands. This is definitely something you do not want to miss out on. Offer ends on Monday!

Hi Shawna,

Take a look...

http://blog.worldwidebrands.com/specialoffer/

It's the first payment plan ever offered by Worldwide Brands.

Now you can get started with the 'Product Sourcing
Membership' with over 6 million wholesale products and
our premium education product, "The Whole Sale" for
only $99 down. You’ll make easy payments of $133 over
the next 3 months, but start enjoying the benefits for your
eBiz right NOW.

Here are the full details:

http://blog.worldwidebrands.com/specialoffer/


There are 2 reasons why we're doing this...

Reason #1: We just finished surveying over 10,000
people who signed up for our "Beat The Recession with
eCommerce" series and almost 80% of them didn't know
what products they would be selling this holiday season.

It's a mistake that could cost thousands of dollars in
sales and profits.

Experienced retailers know that right now is the time to
get your orders in to the wholesalers.

Not a few months from now.

If you wait, you could miss out on the 2008 holiday
season and you'll have to wait until next year.

Each year, the holiday season is the time most retailers
make the bulk of their profits.

You definitely don't want to miss out on it. Click here to
find the products you want to sell this holiday season
and to get your orders in with the wholesalers:

http://blog.worldwidebrands.com/specialoffer/

Reason #2: We want to give you some financial relief.

Even though we showed you example after example of
retailers making record profits through the recession,
we still heard from people who are little afraid to get
started right now.

We understand.

So, in addition to giving you a payment plan that makes
it easier to get your eCommerce business moving, we're
going to give you a $200 discount on everything.

You can read about it here:

http://blog.worldwidebrands.com/specialoffer/

We obviously can't keep this offer open forever.
It's only available through this coming Monday
night, June 30, 2008.

When the clock strikes midnight (Eastern standard Time)
this Monday, the offer will expire.

Take advantage of this right now. It's the best offer
we've ever made.

http://blog.worldwidebrands.com/specialoffer/

Thanks and I'll talk to you soon.
