Welcome to Freedom Confidential

Okay, finally made it!

After two weeks of intense 12 hour days, 7 days a week, I got across the finish line with my new project – Freedom Confidential.

Once I get “settled in” I’ll start posting here more regularly. Meanwhile, I invite you to click on the “Home” link on the top menu to take a look at what Freedom Confidential is all about.

    Like the new site, the layouts, graphics and generally much “lighter” more “inviting” feel to it. I had some problem transferring my membership but eventually it worked fine. Can’t comment about the contents yet as I need more time to browse through it, but for now WELL DONE!

    Congratulations on the launch of your new project. The new website is clean and easy to navigate. Thanks for the free transfer across, the process for me was simple and straightforward. Looking forward to your blog posts and learning to achieve full personal and financial freedom!

    David and his work has been an inspiration to me since the late 1990’s when I joined him on our ever enlightening “escape journey” into a world of ideas and reality that consists of an increasing world of freedom.

    Great brand name David. Did you know that the elites are trying to ensnare the masses seen in J.P. Morgan Chase placing the word FREEDOM in big bold letters on their debit card? How is encouraging people to go into debt a road to freedom?

    But with you it is different and you are offering actionable strategies to become financially and physically free.

    Looking forward to a new chapter with you on this journey.

    Your friend, James of Freedom Offshore

      Thanks James… yes, when I got the idea of the name I was sure the domain name would be “gone”, but it wasn’t. I was so surprised then motivated to start building….

    Great name. Nice layout.

    Everything worked flawless in terms of membership tranfer.

    I hope to learn even more here.

    The switch worked fine. I appreciate that you have informed all members regardless if they have been active on the site of late.

    Hi David, love your new site, very crisp with great visual layout.

    As usual your articles are well written and concise.

    Would like to see more articles relating to Australian content in relation to government legislation and tax laws concerning content on your site.

    Regards.

      Hi Trevor, thanks for your comments. However, I don’t do country-specific advice as that would be impossible to keep up with. Rather I concentrate on foundational principles which can be followed by anyone, anywhere (except for Americans sometimes).

      Hey Trevor:

      There is an Australian lawyer who is an expert in tax laws as they pertain to the offshore world. I can not remember off hand the name and contact details but if you check with me later, maybe I will have them.

      Hi Keith… you are here on the blog site, not in the member area. If you are an existing SovereignLife member, then you are entitled to a free transfer over. Simply login to SovereignLife and follow the instructions for registering a free account with Freedom Confidential. Once you have registered you will have full access to all areas of the new website.

    Hi David,

    As a free member, where can I find my promised, 5 free reports? It’s all a little bit confusing.

    When clicking on http://freedomconfidential.com/overview/ or http://freedomconfidential.com/subscribe/ it was hard (in fact, impossible impossible) to find the free subscription option. Could be more clear, from a design perspective.

    Reading the FAQ: ‘What Type of Support is Available?’ ‘Free members have access to our FAQ’ – that refers to the very same FAQ I’m quoting from? (http://freedomconfidential.com/faq/)

    I was ‘not ready’ when this was called Sovereign Life, and you offered a 50% off with a bitcoin payment. Did I miss that boat completely? However big bitcoin enthusiast are you, it’s strange you don’t offer bitcoin payment option this time. Strangely. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyways; bring it on!

      Hi Daniel…

      Free member registration is clearly available via a big yellow button at the bottom of the home page. Once registered you can access the free reports by logging in at: http://freedomconfidential.com/login/ – and that will bring you to the member home page. You then click on the “Free Content” button to get to the contents page, where the free reports link clearly visible.

      This website is built on a different platform than before, and payment methods available for integration are different – making accepting Bitcoin more of a challenge. However, I’m still looking into that.

        David,

        I’m here: http://freedomconfidential.com/wp-admin/index.php

        I search for the string ‘free content’ on the page: nothing comes up. Perhaps, have you also created a free user on your site, to check out how it works out for them?

          February 19, 2016

          Daniel, not sure why you would be on that page, as it’s admin. I’ve checked all this again just now and everything works fine. You need to login here: http://freedomconfidential.com/login/ – that takes you to the member area where you will see to access buttons – free and paid content. If still don’t see that let me know and I will delete your account so you can start over ๐Ÿ™‚

            This is just to test if my previous follow-up went through.

          • Daniel

            March 2, 2016

            Okay, back tot he question!

            I go to http://freedomconfidential.com/login/

            I log in, which brings me to: http://freedomconfidential.com/wp-admin/

            I search for the string ‘free’ anything, and I have found nothing.

            Separately, you only accept PayPal money yet. But even PayPal allows to pay by a credit card, if you don’t have a PayPal account. It’s just up to the merchant to enable this option. I guess quite a few of your readers would rather pay with something like a prepaid gift card, than signing up for, horror of all horrors, PayPal.

            Okay, I will reset the password and login as “you” in order to test the system. I cannot imagine why this happens, but I will be able to see for myself what happens after I login as “you”. As for PayPal, credit card payment is always an option also.

            I have logged in as “you” and you’re right! This must be a result of recent upgrades to the member plugin, so I will need to go through the settings in my back office today and see if I can fix it. Will report back here later.

            David,

            You forgot to report back here that now it’s actually working! OK, I accidentally discovered that now it’s working, thanks!

            Regarding the downloadable PDF documents: I still find generally a pain to read PDFs. ๐Ÿ™ If you want to make your reports more accessible to more of your readers, you may be interested in offering them in ePub and Kindle formats as well. Check this out: http://shop.oreilly.com/category/ebooks.do

            I’ve seen from your recent video that you use a Mac. You can easily create an ebook style of book with a software called iBooks Author (from Apple).

            Thanks!

            Hi Daniel, I did “report back” via an email I sent out to all free members yesterday, so it would appear you didn’t receive it. Yes I am aware about e-book formats and in my most recent update of “Confessions of a Lazy Online Marketer” I did indeed create an ePub version at the same time – and I do use a Mac ๐Ÿ™‚

    It seems like it has struck in the moderation queue, since I’m absolutely sure I sent it. The system said I even sent the same two times! I had this experience on another WordPress blog. Maybe you want to check your admin settings, or policies, or I don’t know.

  • Daniel

    November 14, 2016

    Hi David,

    In reply to your March 22, 2016 reply: I’m glad that your newer reports are available in ePub as well, which is much easier to read.

    However, when I went to my available free reports, all of them were available in PDF only, which is a painful read on most devices.

    Maybe it would help your free readers to upgrade if they find that you converted all your reports to the much more easy-to-read ePub (and/or Kinlde, but it’s easier to convert between ePub and Kindle than any of the two and PDF) format. Just saying. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you!

    Hi Daniel

    The problem with converting the reports is that the original means of creating it is not always suitable for converting to ePub. My more recent reports are created using Pages on my Mac. This makes it easy to export to both PDF and ePub, from the same source file.

    But most of my older reports were created using Open Office. And then there are quite a few of my reports which are branded in various ways, and this branding can only be done via specific software designed for PDF.

    I’m assuming when you say that PDFs are “painful to read on most devices”, you are referring to mobile phones, as certainly I prefer PDF format on computers – and yes, more and more people use phones as their computers.

    Going forward I will ensure new reports are in both formats (except for branded ones) and will consider updates to older ones if I believe the report is still valid and applicable.

    Thanks or the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Daniel

      November 15, 2016

      David,

      I think for most normal people it’s painful enough to read any longer documents, let alone a 50-to-100-page or even longer PDF book on a computer screen. I was hurry up to buy a Kindle early on, even before a smartphone, to be able to read Internet things like a human, don’t having to kill trees in the process by printing everything that’s interesting. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Let me offer you a fair business deal here: I can help you convert your non-branded, plain Open Office documents to ePub, if you grandfather me to your Premium Membership tier. If this help is worth ~$50 to you and your business, to explore new market segments, like normal people for whom it is painful enough to read an otherwise well-written, detailed report in PDF/on a computer screen, then we are on equal terms.

      I’m not sure if I can help with your branded documents (I wouldn’t market it that way, but I understand you are doing this for some time and it may work for you). If you can make the original Open Office documents branded, then it’s already much easier.

      The best would be if you replied here with a resounding yes/no, and I get back to you. Thank you!

    Daniel, looking at my reports (of which there are many over time), there are too many that are old and really not worth updating for various reasons, or that I no longer promote.

    On the other hand, all my more recent reports – from the last two-three years – were created using Pages, which means I can create ePub versions quite easily.

    I will go through my reports and decide which ones are worth updating in this way.

    But thanks for the offer! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Daniel

      November 16, 2016

      David, okay. I see your points. The bottom line is, me as a free member as it seems can’t see any of your reports which you deem worthy to be updated to ePub, only the old, almost obsolete PDFs. Is that sound about right?

      The marketer’s dilemma, a Catch-22 thing! Just saying. ๐Ÿ™‚
