My mission in life is to achieve my own personal potential while helping others around me to achieve theirs.
I work towards that mission in many different areas of life: personally, spiritually, through service, and through my business.
And since my business is helping people build their business, the way I look at it, my JOB is to help YOU build your top and bottom lines so you can achieve your full potential not only in your business, but to have the time to do so in all the other areas of your life!
That’s the lens through which I screen every decision, opportunity, product and project we undertake; if it doesn’t help you build your business, we don’t do it, EVEN if that means we bring in less revenue as a result!
“So Don, what in the world does all that mushy stuff have to do with email?” I’m glad you asked!
My goal in sending out emails is to provide helpful tips, tools and tutorials for building your business, marketing, blogs & websites, making money online and designing the way you want to live outside of the 9 to 5.
Because of the vast amounts of time and energy I put into my work, I feel it is permissible to be compensated (remember, I have to achieve MY personal potential while helping you achieve yours.) I accept advertising, complimentary products for review, and participate in various affiliate programs which provide a significant portion of my income.
You have my word that I carefully screen the products I promote and will only promote products that I personally use or can recommend without hesitation.
Occasionally, though, I find a tool that does an amazing job at accomplishing something very important for your business, but they also include a feature that does something that could negatively affect your social media or SEO accounts. Most of those get immediately thrown into the trash and you’ll never hear about them from me. But every once in awhile, that good thing they do is so elegant, or so unavailable elsewhere, that I decide to tell you about it. In those cases, I will clearly make a statement in the email telling you what part(s) of the product you should NOT be using because it/they could harm you or your accounts.
It’s also important to note that I don’t have control, and frequently don’t even see, the OTO’s (upsells) you will encounter after purchasing the initial product. Since I’m oftentimes given a complimentary version of the product to use, or I buy the product in its very early stages, I frequently don’t see the OTO’s you are offered. I recommend that you review those OTO offers very carefully to decide if they’re 1. right for you, and 2. safe for you. If you have any questions about whether they’re safe or not for your accounts, please feel free to send me the URL at helpme (at) doncrowther.com (you know how to turn that into a real email address, right?,) I’ll review it and get back to you with my safe or not recommendation.
Integrity is important to me and gaining (and keeping) your trust is paramount.
What is an affiliate link / referral link?
Most of the products that I recommend from others are offered through affiliate links. This simply means that if you click on my link then choose to purchase that product or service, I will receive a referral commission. Of course, your cost doesn’t change, but it does help keep my candle burning so I can keep bringing you great tips! I truly appreciate your support in this way. Thank you.
I especially appreciate those loyal customers who always check to see if I’m offering an affiliate link before purchasing a product. That means a tremendous amount to me. If you would like to support me in that way, drop me an email at helpme (at) doncrowther.com and I’ll let you know if I have an affiliate link for that product.
Additional legal stuff just to make sure things are covered

The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post may not always be identified as paid or sponsored content.
The owner of this blog is compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.

From time-to-time I include testimonials, examples of income made, performance data, and/or estimates of possible income. THESE RESULTS ARE NOT TYPICAL.
