I check in at least once a week. The sheer number of unfinished projects is depressing.

Look at Simple Ads Manager. That may do what you need.

PM me if you need a hand with it.

Who is your target market?

I'm pretty sure that I'm someone who would like this product, but I don't know what any of your text means. There are a lot of facts and numbers. I now know that I can get 1875 watts. So what? Where does it come from? What will it do? I have a generator and that still doesn't mean anything to me.

You also need to fix some typos. random lack of capitalization and other typos really lowers the professionalism of the page.

Your front page needs to push the benefits and not the features.

Back to the 1875 watts issue. Don't tell me that. Say, "You can power x, y, and z (1875 watts of power!!!!)"
It's like the Copyblogger model. They teach their audience enough to understand how/why they need their product.

And I'd drop the Amazon link. It has a lower price than your page's price.

To sum up:
Clean it up a little.
Break it down like you're talking to a 6 year old.
Only give me 1 "buy link". Too many other links near your button.

Bonus thought: figure out how to explain it in 30 seconds and in 2 minutes; and make a video of each.

Personally, you've left me curious enough to want to see more but I'm no where near comfortable enough to spend money.

are you counting on them to give each other link juice? if yes, then it could neutralize it. if not, there shouldn't be a penalty.

If you're not hanging out here anymore, where are you hanging out?

I'll help. Do you have the plugin only or did you sign up for their hosting service?

That's a great question. And a bunch of us here would probably love to hear the official answer.

Getting to the official answer... I'd ask the drop shippers. If they are clueless, I'd try this one: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/orderstorm-wordpress-e-commerce/

I remember reading good reviews of it when I was looking into drop shipping. BUT I NEVER TESTED IT.

Hopefully, you can get better intel than this. Good luck!

You submitted "http://agriculturalinsights.com/category/podcasts/"?

That's not a feed. That's just a link to a page. Feeds are in a different format.

Try: "http://agriculturalinsights.com/category/podcasts/feed"

This WordPress page has all kinds of info on the different feeds built into WP: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Feeds

I love those bottle cap social icons!

$240 is infinitely more than $0.

I suggest doing it manually. That's the only way to be sure your Facebook post looks right.

I've done automatic posting with several different services and they all looked like crap.

3 quick thoughts... they jumped out at me in 20 seconds

1. I hate those flying social things. They pull the reader's eyes away from the main content.

2. You have a menu that takes people no where. Hide the links until you need them.

3. You need a contact page. I'm a huge proponent of Seth Godin's Tribes. There must be a way for your readers to get ahold of you privately.

Shoot me a message when you're further along and I'll check it out again.

Good luck!
