I’ve just gone into beta for a new WordPress brand I’m building called WPUnite.
This will be a repository for all my WP plugins, themes and training.
Basically for one low yearly membership fee you can get access to any plugin or theme I create. Product launches can be tiring.. so I’d rather just put all my plugins under one umbrella membership site. And I’m sure you’d rather pay one time and get all my stuff.
Anyhow, it’s a work in progress, but new members are signing up every day.
Join us before the price goes up. (Regular membership price will be $47 a year)

I’ve rebranded my website stats dashboard service with a very original name.
This is a new promotional domain for our ACME Dashboard service.
Track Google Analtyics, Social Media, Rankings, and a whole lot more.
It works on any mobile device and you can even use to share stats with your own clients and customers.

After a few years of working out of a home office doing online marketing and consulting, I decided I needed to “get out more” and began looking for a small office.
Family friends were renting a location on Route 1 in Wells, Maine and it was a great sized space.
It was actually much bigger than I needed but it came with signage and Rte 1 in Wells is a very busy road. 20,000+ cars a day in the summer.
So the marketer in me was thinking, hmm.. what I could do with that all that free exposure.
Perhaps a catchy, memorable and local domain name would drive visitors to a website. I could promote my own service, offer free info, or use for affiliate promotions.
So I came up with 123Maine.com and since my expertise is online marketing and business consulting, why not provide some simple solutions to all the Maine business owners who might see the sign on their travels.
Well, after a couple months of working in my office, I love the space, and today the business became official when my new sign went up.
It will be interesting to see where it leads.
When you’re trying to come with clever brand names that have an available domain name, you’ll soon discover you own a bunch of names that sound good.. but you don’t have much use for them.
One such name I registered a few years ago was Bzuka.com (think Bazooka). I knew it was clever, but had no idea what I’d use it for until just recently.
I’m a big fan of Envato’s site network and one of their sites is CodeCanyon. A place where programmers and developers sell scripts, plugins and all kinds of neat code.
I saw some scripts that let a user create their own “quotes site”. And then found one developer who had not only had a quotes script, but also jokes, riddles and facts.
So I said.. hmm. People on Facebook and Twitter are always looking for content to update their profiles with… so since a Bazooka is something you blast things with, then Bzuka could be a place to find content to blast to your followers.
Anyhow, it was a good enough reason for me so I bought the scripts and then built the entire site in about 45 minutes.

Sometimes nothing makes you feel better than organizing your desk, your closet, your car etc. I know I lead an exciting life, but there’s just something about consolidating your “stuff”.
So I got to thinking… since WordPress makes it so easy to export pages/posts and import them into another site, why not just clean out some of my old personal sites that I don’t really do much with and merge the content into one site.
Now these sites aren’t really big money makers, so I’m not worried about rankings or traffic.
However I suspect that what I did tonight will actually increase the total traffic since it will be easier for me to focus on just one site, and Google may index everything differently then it did before.
I had an old marketing blog at NewbieReport.com, a personal blog at DanielNickerson.com, and I also owned DanNickerson.com.
Since everyone knows me as “Dan Nickerson”, I just decided to bite the bullet and make that my primary branded site. I also use it for my email, so it just makes sense.
If you’ve been thinking about combining multiple sites into one, here’s how I did it.. and it was pretty easy.
It took about 15 minutes.
