Listener Questions

1. From the Listener Line: Bill Murray asks about how to create response-generating titles and subtitles.
2. From the Listener Line: Bret Ridgway asks about the future of product launches.
3. From the Listener Line: Robert M Schwarztrauber asks about how to find the audience for your website or product.

Marie McMichael – asked about legal disclaimers for your websites.
Dana Beasley – had a comment to offer.
Connie Ragen Green – asked about whether we still recommend using bullet points in sales copy.
John Klein – wants to know how to track the source of links and leads from various sources for his music success workshop site.
Christy Sales – slipped in a plug for her site.
