1. Holiday Sale - 10% Off All Products (One Week Only)!
Holiday Sale - 10% Off All Products (One Week Only)! I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Happy Holidays! If you're in the US I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving, with tons of turkey, pumpkin pie, gallons of egg nog, and then purchased a gym membership. ;)

I'm already making Christmas lists, decorating, and arranging holiday plans with friends and family. I was planning to invite all of you over to my home for a special holiday dinner, but reconsidered when I pictured thousands of you packed into my house, crowded around my dining room table. And where would I find a six ton turkey, anyway? :)

So instead we're having a huge Holiday Sale. You'll save 10% on any product purchase, just until December 7th. If there's any product that's caught your attention, now's the best time to buy!

You can save huge on Listings Manager or the hot new Article Manager 2 - get either for only $269. Page Publisher is only $134 or purchase News Manager, Job Manager, or DocBuilder for just $89 each. This even applies to multi-packs where you can save as much as $120 per license on Article Manager or Listings Manager! :)

Check out our homepage to find the product that's right for you!

If you would like to place an order or have any questions, you can always give us a call (toll free 1-800-752-0455), send an email, post in the forum, or message us through live chat.
2. You Don't Have To Be A Programmer To Customize Your Software
You Don't Have To Be A Programmer To Customize Your Software A few years ago we asked a really powerful question that completely changed how we thought about making software. The question was:

"How can we give non-technical users all the power of a programmer to customize the software without having to be a programmer?"

A question that starts with "How" assumes that there is an answer. It's amazing what a difference it makes to start a question with "How can we...?" instead of just "Can we...?". If a question can be answered with "no", it often is, and that's the end of it! :)

But back to the story. We thought, why should you have to be a computer programmer just to have your software look and work the way you want it? Why should you be boxed in to how one software developer (that's us!) thinks things should work? You shouldn't!

Our software is completely customizable without learning a programming language, does not require you to have a computer science degree, and you will not have to drink 55 cups of coffee and stay up till 3am for weeks at a time.

We don't make our software for programmers, we make our software for real people like you. Your time is valuable and you have more important things to do than spend years in front of the computer building a program that will work perfectly for your website (that's our job!).

We've spent years glued to our computer screens programming away... SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO. We've taken things that were the exclusive domain of programmers and made them accessible to everybody.

Take Article Manager, for example. Need another field? Just add it. Only want users to enter certain values in a certain field, just type in what you need and it does the work for you. Wish the program published a list of top sports articles sorted by team? It only takes a few minutes and you can do it all by yourself.

Order Article Manager 2 today and give it a try. I promise you won't be disappointed, but you don't have to take my word for it. We put our money where our mouth is and back up that promise with a 90-day "no questions asked" money back guarantee AND... a direct line to the CEO. Not happy, email me personally at dave@interactivetools.com and I'll take care of it for you.

Come join our community of web developers, we'll support you from start to finish!

4. Ross Report - Article Manager Tutorials
Ross Report - Article Manager Tutorials Hi everyone! Guess who's back? :)

I bet you have all been wondering where the monthly Ross Report went. I actually had someone ask me if I had snuck back into Thailand for a month again. Well, since it's been so busy with the release of Article Manager 2, I've been sending a lot of email, so you can actually think of those as smaller, personalized Ross Reports. In fact, maybe you've received one of the 982 emails I've sent this month. That is definitely a LOT of Ross Reports!

Sometimes it's more efficient to talk to everyone at the same time, so this report is going to be old-school style again. The subject will be Article Manager 2 tutorials.

Because you can do so many things with Article Manager 2, we are picking some of the more common things people are setting up and tutorializing them for you. Yes, tutorialize is a word (which I just invented).

You might notice that each tutorial sometimes offers more than one way to do the same thing. That ties into how customizable Article Manager 2 really is. The list here is going to be constantly growing so make sure you bookmark it and check back every once in a while to see what's new.

Now, when you are using Article Manager 2, you are never alone. There are hundreds of other developers getting there sites set up and you'll notice a lot of activity in our Article Manager 2 forum. This is actually where most of our tutorials originate, making it a great spot to watch as well.

One really great thread is called "Article Manager 2 Tutorials and Tips". This is a huge list of all the Article Manager 2 tutorials that have already been written. If what you are trying to setup isn't already in there, feel free to start a new thread and we'll all jump in (the support team and the community) and get things going.

One last thing. The tutorials are also a great way to actually learn Article Manager. If you are new to the software, just pick a couple tutorials that seem useful and run through the steps as a way to teach yourself about the program. Even if you didn't actually want what the tutorial covered, it will introduce you to a lot of the important elements of Article Manager 2. That familiarization will definitely help you later on down the road when you end up working on something related.

And with that, I'll ride off into the sunset one more time. Have fun with the tutorials and let me know if you would like to see anything specific up there. I'll see you all again in the next Ross Report. :).
