We’re going to fill out the important key information for your convertkit account.

I am still on that page that told us that there was one more step and I continued reading down that page.

Noticing that there actually are a few more steps

let’s go ahead and fill out this form real quick and you can substitute any of this information with your information,

continue reading down the page after it tells you to return to your email to confirm it you’ll see the following:

Antispam laws require a physical address where you can be reached at

This address is found at the bottom of every email.

Street address

and of course you can put a PO Box there as well I’ve seen a lot of people doing that.

   so I'm going to grab the street address information that Mitch uses for his Can-spam requirements and Pace that in here, 

     after you filled all that information out you'll be prompted to enter your  website. 

This is the main site you will use with convertkit, ( you can obviously use convert kit with other sites as well,however in this field please put your companies main site)

so I’ll paste in the URL that were using for this client.

And then the last thing we have to fill out on this page is your default email settings. This is the name and email address that will be used as a default for your account, you can change it later or override it on individual emails. Or broadcasts or sequences.

I’m going to put the from name here

We’ve now got the reply email address, and we will press VO right arrow until we get to

save your information

and we’ll select that option.

Now unfortunately convertkit does not with voice over show you that this information has been updated, however when all you see is that you have one more step which is to confirm your email address then go ahead and confirm your email address, then that page will go away and you’ll be ready to go.

Your next lesson tomorrow is going to be a brief overview of terms to know foru sing convertkit.

If you click a link in this or other content published by me, it’s possible you may be clicking an affiliate link.

Clicking an affiliate link simply means i took the time to establish a relationship of some sort with companies so these companies would pay me a portion of what you pay them for the product or service you order.

I do this because it’s my goal to do what i can to provide the best life for my younger brothers and my wife who has done so much for our family.

You do not pay any more for ordering threw an affiliate link then what you would pay if you ordered the content directly threw the company producing the product/service.
I’ll be sharing more information about affiliate marketing in the Payown.Club
Contact me if you have any question about what this means for you, and if you don’t wish to support me threw using affiliate links I publish, feel free to google the company/product/service.

What Is Convertkit

This is the first of several audio and Video lessons I’ve recorded, answering the question, what is convertkit?

If you have listened to the podcast it’s possible that you know that I’ve been fond of Convertkit for a while now. May of 2016 to be exact, and I have not looked back at the previous email service provider I used in the past,

ahem, AWEBER

What is convertkit

In the next short while if you subscribe to the podcast, I’m going to share the following five things for you:

  • a bit about what email marketing service is, and why you might need it
  • Who this is for
  • what you should have by completing this course
  • and a quick checklist of what you need to follow along with us.

If this is the first lesson in a course I’ve produced why are you getting it on the podcast?

If you’re not asking yourself that question, just as a heads up into how my mind works, if I was in your position that’s probably one of the first questions I would have asked…

The answer is simple though, I need feedback from you!

I’ve got something I need to admit, and I’m not sure how comfortable I am with that!

Convertkit helped me see

That it’s very likely I don’t want to be producing courses.

However, people have told me that I’m good at what I do…

So, I want to share my knowledge with people like you, in hopes that you’ll reach out to me and tell me that you would rather hire me and then have me teach you how to do it.


Well, I’ve got a couple of reasons…

  • First of all, when I work for you I can get paid more, especially if someone could learn how to handle the tech for free on my podcast.
  • If you like the material, it’s possible you’ll share it with your connections who may also enjoy it
  • I can provide value to people who are looking just to learn
  • I smoke way two much pot to sit down and Record videos, I’d rather sit down and make my brain work on someone else problems!
  • and I can implement a new business model I think will allow me to help more people while making more money.

So, answer, what is convert kit?

Convertkit is my favorite email marketing software, easy-to-use, accessible, flexible, and powerful.

If you’d like to check it out, enter your name and email address and the form below and you’ll be able to get a free month trial.


and more lessons coming soon😘


I broke my phone

I love this software and you will two.

I hope your weeks been wonderful, I’ve got an interesting bit of updates for you this week.

what’s that michael?

  • yep i threw my phone and broke it
  • the website crashed two
  • and then my computer?
  • but at least i’ve got backups

The phone

So if you didn’t here this weeks Damashe and Michael, Just talking tech (DM Series) podcast episode you should listen to it.
"Listen as Damashe shares his excitement, he hasn’t been this excited since well, um, DM11…
We talked about what to backup, why to back the things up, and tools you can use.
Listen to Backing Up Your Digital Life – DM22 and before the Network ID your going to learn about why i had to re record my part for this episode.

The website crashed?

What? Really?
Ok so not really, but it kinda was like a crash.
If you follow me on twitter you know that every hour, to be exact, every 1.2 hours, I send out an old blog post using a plug-in called“Revive old posts”.
This plug-in is amazing, except I noticed last weekend that it wasn’t posting anything.

Strangely, I logged into my WordPress admin panel.

At least… I thought that was what I was doing…

And was presented with:

"Not Acceptable!

An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security.“”

After some trouble support tickets and some back-and-forth with the hosting team that I was using, I learned that without me being made aware of it they had moved my website to a different server.

The wordpress security plugin i use on Damashe’s recommendation saw that there was something different about where my site was hosted and thought this to be suspicious.

I couldn’t access my website for a couple of days well the Internet updated to provide this plug-in correct information, and now I know how to skip this if it happens in the future.

Lesson learned, I should stop putting off migrating to a Linode.

DM17s “what is shared hosting vs cloud hosting” explains the difference.
that’s why this week’s w-cast was delayed two.

and the computer?

Ironically enough, Wednesday morning when I opened my computer, I noticed that the start up disk wasn’t set properly.

And unfortunately, I couldn’t access any of my files.

But I had a backup of everything that I needed…

Hopefully you do too!

So I reformatted the computer and I have been restoring from that backup, and making a clean backup as well.

I love that tool that Damashe recommended in this weeks episode to back my files up to onedrive. Especially since I’m paying for it
but not using it.

Well, I’m using it now…


So, if you’re not, make a backup of your important digital life today, because you never know what might happen.
