It's All About The Banners

Resizing Banners or Any Pictures .

How often do you need to resize a perfectly good banner to a different size to suit the place you are advertising in? It’s not good enough to put a large banner when a smaller one is needed, it will just distort the banner to make it fit.
Take a look at the following banner:

300×250 banner

Now this is a great little banner, but the place where I wanted to advertise it would only accept a banner size of 125×125 pixels.

There are plenty of sites that will resize ‘jpeg’ and ‘png’ files, but not animated ‘gif’ files like this one. However I did find this site which is easy to use and completely free. This is the site: and this is the resized image I created.


As you can see, the image resizing has worked a treat with only a slight distortion due to me insisting on a square banner.

Creating Simple Banners.
Here are some banners I created using and it only took me around 15 to 20 minutes each banner. This is a completely free service that does have a hosting option, which is ridiculously cheap, if you want to  use it. I don’t because I can just upload them to my blog here and take the image URL from here.
Anyway lets take a look at the banners.

Here’s a slightly bigger banner that I can use as a header. Unfortunately BannerSketch only lets us use a maximum width of 728 pixels, but hey it’s a free program and I can work with that. So here’s a 728x 250 banner.

Just for fun I created an even bigger one here, this would probably make a background for a splash page or something. 728×520.

All the above banners were created using the same background image and just cropped to the size required inside BannerSketch. I had great fun making these and most importantly these are unique to me and so it’s now time to see how they work.

Bet You've Never Heard Of This Billionair

Chances are you’ve never heard of Chuck Feeney. And he’s worked very hard to keep it that way.
Feeney, who will turn 85 on Saturday, had an incredibly successful business career, amassing a multibillion dollar empire based primarily on duty-free retail shopping.

Meet the selfish tycoon who dodged billions in taxes

According to Forbes, this nefarious tycoon “has aggressively tried to avoid taxes at every stage in his career– from setting up his early business in Liechtenstein, incorporating his holding company in Bermuda. . .”
What a surprise… another rich a-hole abusing offshore tax havens in order to keep all of his wealth for himself.
What a B****ard!  Or is he!
Things are not always what they seem or what could get reported in the media.
You’re probably wondering how many Ferraris this depraved billionaire has added to his collection over the years…
Well, none, actually.
He’s flown millions of miles in coach, wears a cheap Casio watch, and crashes at his daughter’s apartment when he visits New York City.
It turns out that Chuck Feeney has spent the last few decades giving away his entire fortune to the point that he makes Bill Gates look like an amateur.
Feeney transferred his business interests to his charitable organization in 1984. And for the last 30+ years he’s given away nearly $8 BILLION through the foundation.
Given that Feeney’s personal net worth is now roughly two million bucks (million with an ‘m’), that means he’s given away 99.98% of his wealth.
That's got to be better than giving it to the government so they can use it to bomb people in other countries! Just a thought.
Something to think about for today.

You Where Born Rich - Free Download

So here is something I came across this morning and it's a free book by none other than Bob Proctor himself, which I came across on Facebook.

As it is one I haven't read I've downloaded and will read on my tablet later today. OK it's not his latest book but I'm sure there will be loads of inspiration inside. As per usual they are collecting names and email addresses but this is never a concern for me because I like to see how more experienced people than me run their email campaigns.

Whichever way you look at it there is a lot to learn here. The link is below or just click the picture, download and enjoy. 


P.S. If for any reason the links are not working then go direct to the Facebook post HERE!
