DIY Press Release Marketing Tools For Mac Internet Marketers

mac-pr-submissionMacGadgetGal loves using her MacBook to market her home-based business! Lately I’ve been on a press release marketing binge, and it’s really helped drive visitors and traffic to my website quickly. I was new to issuing press releases, but I learn quick and found two really great services to 1. Help me write a killer PR in 5 minutes or less, and 2. Syndicate my release out to 100 or more news sites for less than $2 a day.

Traditionally, just writing a news release has typically been a bit of a learning curve to get in the groove of the Associated Press – AP style of writing to comply with PR guidelines. It has to be NEWS – like an event like a website redesign or launch, a new hire, or a new product – and include company information in the right places. One might try to outsource this composing job, however there are web-based tools such as the Instant PR Creator service to help a novice Mac user compose an ideal news release in just a few minutes. After selecting one of twenty common PR template styles, you just enter snippets of business information you type while logged in with your Safari or FireFox browser. It will auto-generate a fully written and properly formatted PR text file to syndicate out through whichever free or paid PR newswire release service you prefer.

One powerful method to totally syndicate your press release economically and broadly is by registering and subscribing to LivePR Submitter Service at an affordable month-to-month charge. For less than what you might pay for just a single syndicated PR release, you can submit a sequence of new press releases day after day and take advantage of Live PR Submitter’s already paid for syndication via their channel subscription to have your news release extensively dispersed.


MacGadgetGal Says Hi From Market Samurai On My Mac

December 26, 2014 Leave a comment

This web mistress has long been a user of Noble Samurai's insanely great All-In-One SEO software program for Mac OSX. Most of the time I use the keyword analysis and research module, the SEO Competition module (to see just how IMPOSSIBLE it can be to even get on Page 1 of Google anymore!!!), and use the Rank Tracker module to track a few keywords of importance. (Tip: You can find out quickly in the Rank Tracker if your site(s) are punished by Google – If you enter your top money keywords and see their mostly in, say, the 40-59 range, you know they've applied a Minus-50 penalty for overoptimizing your backlink keyword profile. Some of the sites I track even have -100 penalties!) 

Can't imagine my web mistress life without it. Best money I ever spent on a SEO tool that does it all. It uses Adobe Air cross-platform runtime technology to run either on OSX or Windows, saving it's developers the headache of separate versions.

But tonight I'm using the Publish Content module – with the ability to send a post directly to my free site. Never tried it before but seems easy enough. I won't be using the Monetization module to quickly find and add the code for any products – cuz I've had wordpress blogs suspended for posting aff links. Oh well.

1-Cable USB Speakers For Mac Laptop and Desktop Use

August 7, 2013 Leave a comment


For ease of portability, convenience and an improved Mac audio experience, a USB powered computer speaker can be a great MacBook accessory that serves you well on the go or at your desktop. Especially for MacBook Pro and Air owners frustrated by the hard to hear and tiny built-in speakers, an external USB speaker system can help you hear what you’re missing.

Getting both 5 volts of power and delivering a pure digital stereo audio stream over a single USB cable eliminating the need for batteries, and AC power supply, or recharging. These Universal Serial Bus powered speaker systems come in both one and two piece styles. The former is great for easy toteability, the latter might be preferred where the two speakers can be placed wider apart for better stereo imaging and separation.

I’m particularly fond of the long and narrow USB soundbar style of speaker such as those made by Edifier, GrandMax, Logitech or Computer associates which fit easily into a MacBook’s carrycase, is light weight and provides a vastly improved music and audio listening experience at more than adequate room-filling volume levels.
