Weekly 5 Posts for Web WorkersEvery week I come across through my RSS feed, Twitter, Facebook, E-mails and random surfing thousands of articles, some are great, some not so much, some are just quick tidbits of info, where others can be complete guides.

I would say each week I do find about a dozen really fabulous posts and from there I do the hard job of picking the five best to present the Deuce Group Weekly 5 for Web Workers.

Here are this weeks 5 must read posts for online workers:

2. 5 Steps to Make More Money From Your Website with Less Traffic (Sept 15th)

I’ve always believed and said it’s more important to have quality visitors than quantity, of course there needs to be a balance, you can never have too many visitors (servers allowing) and you can never have enough targeted visits. Corbett Barr posted these five tips to cashing in on targeted visitors on the Think Traffic blog.

3. Welcome Emails: The Perfect Non-Spammy Money Makers (Sept 14th)

Okay this could technically be in last weeks, but I didn’t see it until this week and thought for sure it needed to be included as many people don’t realize the power they have with the welcome e-mail. Usually someone who subscribes to your newsletter is excited or at the very least interested in what you have to say, so before he changes his mind, cash in. This is basically what Jonathan Volk discusses in his post on his blog.
