You may be asking “What is it? Does anyone even use it?”

Here is just a quick example. When I set up my sales page for Get Famous ( Most Amazing Bloggers Resource On The Planet) I was having an issue with my flow and getting it on ejunkie properly. I’m not super tech savvy at times so I could feel a meltdown coming.
