Your main link service is sadly blocked here in China so I couldn’t get access to the ebook, would you consider making it available elswhere as well.

Sure, just shoot me a mail and I’ll send it to you. Just note that you need to use a mail service that allows files larger than 10mb.

@everyone – Thanks guys!! I really appreciate your comments :)

I just read it, it’s a pretty good resource. Some things are missing maybe one day I’ll write my own. One day.. There are a lot of good ideas here on the forums, most of that you know/found but there is more ;)

Wow!! Reached 750 downloads on the book in just a couple of days!! Sweet!!!! :D

Thank you everyone who’s downloaded, I hope you all liked it and found it useful.

Used any of my tips yet? Let us all know how it worked out for you, just place a small comment here on which tip and how it worked out.

As a sidenote, I’d love to see some updated profiles ;) Anyone updated his or her?

I updated my profile around the time I read your book. You didn’t tell me too much new but I maybe have more confidence because “I did it like it’s written in the book” :D Or something like that..

I could use some feedback: Is that okay to put all those 8 buttons on every file I did? Or just six, then what to leave out? They all can be useful but there are maybe too much I don’t know. I would like to use them all :)

I think you can use all eight buttons, they are essential in their own way. Profile looks good :)

If you let me say my opinion: :)

Don’t put under items the “Hire me” or “Visit my site” buttons. Use only buttons that are relevant to the item. I would maintain some horizontal alignment too, to make them easy to scan, and use color to distinguish the banners easily.

“Mention this to your followers” requires too much thinking for the user to do and raises a lot of questions (mention? is that tweeting? followers? is that a facebook link or a twitter link? “have to see the icon to determine”... ), instead I would use the simple “Tweet about this”.

Generally, you have too much text on your banners and the icons aren’t well visible. Banners are for scanning and clicking, not for reading.

Use short statements and start them with verbs to attack the user psychology, not make it think.

Hope that helps.
