  • How to give away what you’re selling for fun and profit
  • The evil psychological trick that people love
  • Why to never expect anything in return (for the win)
  • How keeping it real lets you “sell out”
  • Why leadership is the key to lead generation

Copyblogger is Eight Today (Time for a Facelift)!

Time flies when you’re having fun, but it’s true … Copyblogger is 8 years old today.
