1. Free Consulting With Each Purchase - Until June 8th!
Free Consulting With Each Purchase - Until June 8th! If you're reading this, READ FAST - I don't want the warm weather to lure you away (summer is just around the corner). Just until June 8th, with each product purchase we're giving away an entire hour of consulting time with a product expert.

That's a $50 value, entirely free! :)

Your free hour helps your project hit the ground running, whether it's integrating Article Manager into your existing site, launching a brand-new real estate site with Realty Manager, or setting up any of our other products.

(Note that installation is always free, what we're offering is "above and beyond" the regular install service.)

You might even enlist us to implement advanced features that really enhance and customize your site. For example, we could configure your Realty Manager site to showcase featured properties or offer both Rental and Sales (or Commercial and Residential) listings.

With Article Manager, you could have us:
  • Set up an RSS feed.
  • Display your headlines in other sections of your site.
  • Integrate Google AdSense so you can instantly create a revenue generating website.
Let us know what you need for your next project - how you use your free hour is entirely up to you. :)

To learn more about Priority Consulting, look over the Consulting Page or contact our support team.

Visit our order page to get your free hour of Priority Consulting with every purchase. If you have any questions you can always talk to us by phone (toll free 1-800-752-0455), email, forum, or live chat.
2. Coach's Corner - Article Manager Auto-Publish - By Mike Briggs
Coach's Corner - Article Manager Auto-Publish - By Mike Briggs Hi Everyone,

I'm really excited about this month's Coach's Corner tutorial as it's something that we get a ton of requests for. I've recently written "Autopublish.cgi", an Article Manager add-on script that automatically publishes your articles on a future date. You can write your articles in advance, go out and play golf, and relax knowing your content will go live on the day you specified. I'm hoping you will find this script useful - we've had this requested once or twice (or maybe a hundred of times!) before. :)

Here's how it works: Autopublish.cgi takes the articles that you specify (with a dropdown) and publishes them on the specified date: each article is set to "Visible" then published to your site.

Check out the tutorial, and feel free to send me an email or post in our discussion forum with your questions. We can also set up the whole thing for you through Priority Consulting (until June 8th you get a free hour with each purchase), so if you need any help just send an email and we'll go over your requirements together.
3. Welcome Chet - New Team Member
Welcome Chet - New Team Member I'd like to welcome and introduce you to the newest interactivetools team member, Chet Woodside. As soon as he's finished an insanely intense training program (3-4 weeks of grueling product training, learning support from top to bottom, all the while running through mine fields and crawling under barbed wire) you'll start hearing from him.

Prior to joining interactivetools.com Chet was a freelance media designer, so he's well versed in the art of HTML and CSS. As for hobbies, he's a little bit of an extreme sport maniac, spending his weekends up on the local mountains snowboarding or surfing the coastline, getting a taste of the Pacific Ocean.

Chet also tells me he enjoys painting/drawing (he's a bit of an architectural and industrial design junkie), long walks on the beach, and watching beautiful sunsets.

Okay, I made that last paragraph up - sorry, ladies, this isn't a personals ad. :)
4. New Listings Manager Demo - Template by Template Monster!
New Listings Manager Demo - Template by Template Monster! A few months ago we launched a new Realty Manager demo, and people seemed to love it. To keep pace with Realty Manager we just re-launched a new Listings Manager online demo. The new demo looks just like a genuine portable electronics site and is designed to give you an idea of what can really be achieved with Listings Manager.

The template was provided courtesy of Template Monster. If you like our demo, you might want to check out their huge selection at templatemonster.com, perfect for any of our products. Also, when you purchase one of our products you will instantly save 10% on any template from Template Monster.

The demo was just launched, so if you do notice any glitches or errors, please let me know. ;)

Check out the demo and see if Listings Manager would be the right fit for your next project. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! :)
5. The Ross Report - Listings Manager: Simple Template Integration - by Ross Fairbairn
The Ross Report - Listings Manager: Simple Template Integration - by Ross Fairbairn This month, the Ross Report is going to focus on templates: specifically, Listings Manager templates. When integrating Listings Manager templates there are so many different ways to get things done.

I often encounter a certain type of template design that's actually extremely easy to work with. I'm sure you've all seen the type: it has a header on the top, some navigation down the left, and the Listings Manager content in the middle. I've worked with so many of these that I put together a little tutorial for myself and thought it would be a great idea to share it with you. Read through, have a look, and let me know what you think. :)
6. Web Development Resource - Open Source Web Design
Web Development Resource - Open Source Web Design I'm always on the lookout for new resources, hoping to share a couple with you for each newsletter. This time I only stumbled across one, but I think you'll really like it.

The site is called OSWD, which stands for Open Source Web Design.

There you can share any design you've created with the rest of the world. Or if you're stumped and just wish a great design would fall in your lap, you can also download designs for the low, low price of $0.00 (zero dollars US).

There's currently over 1600 designs to choose from. Check it out!
