Ok, I know you've all been wondering – What is the deal with Leslie, The Freebie Guy? He hasn't posted to his blog recently. If you've been following me for a while, you know that whenever an extended period of time (over 1 week) passes and this blog hasn't been updated, I've been up to something. Well, yes, that is correct, and this time it's bigger than ever.
Since starting as a freebie trader, I've spent a lot of time at Freebie Trading Forums. They are great places to get referrals. However, there was one thing that ALWAYS stuck out in my mind – They didn't seem fully optimized for new people who just happened to land there, maybe via a google search or some other random method. I imagined myself as someone who never heard about Freebie Trading, coming to a Freebie Forum and trying to find my way around. Whenever I imagined that, I imagined myself leaving soon after. The reason for this is that usually there is no clear guidance as to what the forum is about. Yes, there are many tutorials on these forums, but putting it all together seemed to be a huge task without strategic guidance.
A little over a month ago, I was approached by the owner of CaliStyle101.com (CS101). He wanted to know if I was interested in purchasing CS101. He needed to sell for personal reasons and really wanted me to buy it because he thought that I could help to take CS101 to the next level. I thought about it for a while and then decided not to buy it. It wasn't a forum that I'd ever used. However, over the next few days, I kept thinking about it over and over and I finally decided to not just buy it, but to invest a lot of time and energy into doing whatever I can to make CS101 the BEST Freebie Trading Forum in the industry, with the main goal of doing whatever I can to help others be successful in the Freebie Industry.
So, there you have it – The secret is out! I am now the proud owner of CaliStyle101.com. My partner, Chris Deals and I have been working tirelessly at developing some concepts that we believe will revolutionize the entire industry. Ok, maybe not tirelessly, because I'm extremely tired, lol.
There are some things you will notice as soon as you get there:
Completely New Design
I really wasn't feeling the old design, so we came with something nice, bright and fresh. We want that when people come to the forum, they feel calm and relaxed. It had to be easy on the eyes, and we feel like we accomplished that.
Simple, Clear Video Training
You shouldn't be confused when you first come to CS101. Many people come to CS101, register and leave because they are unaware of what it is about. Now we have some simple, step by step video tutorials that outline the entire process of Freebie Trading. You can check out the Video Tutorials here.
New, more effective homepage.
If you go to http://www.CaliStyle101.com, you will know exactly what I’m talking about.New, More powerful server
This was a necessity. We wanted to revamp things, and because of this – we needed MORE POWER. Hopefully this translates into a smoother CS101 experience for you all.
Featured Freebie Networks
We’ve partnered with 10 sites to be able to provide you with the best service possible. It’s going to take work to build CS101 into what we want it to be, but with the support of these 10 sites, we know that we will make it. Go ahead and check out our Featured Freebie Networks.
Now, we are going to be kicking off this launch in style. We are giving away a bunch of prizes. I'm not going to tell you all about it here, but go on over to CaliStyle101.com and Register to find out about the Cool stuff we have going on this month. You won't want to miss out.
