Day of the Long Tail Trailer

The Long Tail is a marketing and media concept that describes how over the long term, content always outperforms it's initial surge it receives when it's initially launched or pushed. Even though the long tail is way more conmplicated than that, I've described the concept in a very small nutshell for you here.

28 Places to promote online

So just so people know, I pretty much cut and pasted this from the post at Some good things on the Internet have a tendency to walk away or become membership based or charged for, and I wanted to make sure that this list stayed in a place were I could access it easily. SO MUCH thanks go out to for creating the following list of 28 great News Submission Sites (otherwise known as free places to promote online).

1.Digg - Launched in Dec 2004 by former TechTV host, Kevin Rose, digg has emerged as one of the super-traffic communities on the web, allowing the community to decide what's newsworthy and what isn't.

2. SpymySpyMy is an idea conceived by a self-confessed geek who is tired with the state of existing news aggregators in South East Asia. It is based around the model of Digg, where users choose what is to be promoted, effectively defining what is popular without ANY influence of editors or administrators.

3.Flogz - Flogz is a well-functioning personal finance and investing community site where users submit links to stories and vote for which ones should be promoted to the main page, much the same as

4.FarkDrew Curtis developed a site called Fark in 1999 where he used to share some weird news with his friends. Today it is so famous that it gets nearly 400 million hits a day… displays the highest rated links from our users right on the front page. When you come to aworldofhelp you see the most recent and highest rated links in many different categories.

6.SlashdotI don't think I need to give any intro for this site... This is big brother of all sites those are driven by the user community…

7.DigstockDigStock is a financial website that provides investors access to major financial news as well as user-submitted stories.

8. i-am-boredThis is a list of sites we think will help to cure your boredom. New sites are added several times a day, so check back often.

9.MetafilterMetafilter is a weblog that anyone can contribute a link or a comment to. A typical weblog is one person posting their thoughts on the unique things they find on the web. This website exists to break down the barriers between people, to extend a weblog byond just one person, and to fster discussion among its members.

10.RedditA source for what’s new and popular on the web — personalized for you. We want to democratize the traditional model by giving editorial control to the people who use the site, not those who run it. Your votes train a filter, so let reddit know what you liked and disliked, because you’ll begin to be recommended links filtered to your tastes. All of the content on reddit is from users who are rewarded for good submissions (and punished for bad ones) by their peers; you decide what appears on your front page and which submissions rise to fame or fall into obscurity.

11.NewsvineAt Newsvine, you can read stories from established media organizations like the Associated Press as well as individual contributors from all around the world. Placement of stories is determined by a multitude of factors including freshness, popularity, and reputation. Contribution is open to all, and editorial judgement is in the hands of the community.

12.BoingboingA directory of wonderful things and also the top rated blog in the blogosphere according to technorati.

13. IsnareiSNARE is a free Articles Directory. is social bookmarking for the missional/emerging church movement and the inbreaking kingdom of God.

18.Blinklist - BlinkList is based on the principle of the wisdom of crowds so it is a great engine to help you discover information from people that share a similar passion and interest as you.

19.Web-feedsUsers moderate and decide which items make it to the home page, only rules being no links to adult related or illegal activity sites.  Organizing what we read according to who wrote it is not the best way to  gather information, at Web Feeds you can read items based on Topic Relevence.

20.Shoutwire - Similar to digg, Every story on the site that makes it to the front page is due to the users of the site promoting the stories. Shoutwire incorporates a system of self-moderation and management which allows the community to remove bad or broken content.

Mike Litman Audio

Mike Litman has an email audio called "The 2 Common Characteristics All Internet Millionaires Have In Common"

While it initially takes a minute to get used to Mike Litman's New York Accent, his words are important. Mike Litman has impacted me in many ways, and I think this audio offers some little nuggets that people would do well to learn and apply on a regular basis (myself included).

NOTE: It may take a minute or two to begin playing.

You can enjoy it here.

Have I mentioned Seth Godin?

My friend and mentor Mark Widawer introduced me to Seth Godin. I'm forever grateful to Mark for doing so.

In case you don't know, Seth Godin is a marketing genius, and someone whose ideas and principles you might want to take some time to learn if you're at all interested in the power of influencing others and becoming someone whom others follow.

One of his more recent posts is quite interesting, sent to me by my friend Patrick Shaw.

It starts like this:

I posted about an alternative MBA program that I was going to launch. Unaccredited, residential, free and six months long. A new way to learn about a new way of doing business.

We're almost done, and it has exceeded every expectation I had for it, and I think there are some broader lessons worth sharing.
