Approximately 400,000 Americans, 2.5 million people worldwide,
have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a chronic, unpredictable, nonfatal
disease of the central nervous system that leaves many to seek
work-at-home opportunities. And nowadays, that means online, with
great new resources like Content Desk, an Internet content syndication
center and a source of high-quality, targeted content for websites.
“Tools, resources, tips, advice, feedback and strategies of the
members are openly shared,” explained Clay Cotton, stricken with
MS in 1990, who turned to Internet marketing for his livelihood.
“While in other contexts, i.e. with other membership sites, they’d be
Content Desk has a variety of tools to help members create and
use all types of content from articles, reports, facts, tips,
newsletters and forums, to blogs, audio, video, interviews, product reviews,
creative writing, public domain information, RSS and more. Some of their
tools are downloads and videos, while others are online
applications and knowledge shared through learning. And learning
is offered in the form of videos, articles, help texts, tutorials, member
sharing and seminars / workshops.
Power packed, Content Desk is a helpful tool for Cotton who
struggles to live productively while facing increased limitations
including numbness, tremors, slurred speech, weakness and
fatigue. He prefers to use his “altered abilities,” like those offered
by his Content Desk membership, instead of being referred to as
one with “disabilities.”
“You sure wouldn’t tell Helen Keller she had disabilities!” added
Cotton, founder of Alter-Abled at alter-abled.com. He has played
Piano on record, on stage and on tour with music legends like Mick
Jagger, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Garcia, Hank Williams
Jr., B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Chuck Berry, Boz Skaggs and scores
of others. “I like to think of myself as having altered abilities.”
The Content Desk membership community communicates via their
private forum, virtual conferences, teleconferences, email,
support desk, workshops and new Mentor / Sponsorship Program for
members to team up. And the exclusive online community focuses on
four things; community, learning, technology and profits.
Content Desk membership fees go right back into development of
new software and tools so that members are always on the
cutting-edge and far ahead of all the "point-and-click" site
builders out there.
Cyber-brains behind the Content Desk scene are the “Power Trio;”
Jack Humphrey, Mark Braunstein, and Peter Lenkefi. These three
renowned visionaries found themselves smack dab in the middle of
the emerging, fledgling web publishing industry.
One of the best tools to come across Cotton’s cyber Content Desk
lately is Skypeä. A peer to peer voice service, Skypeä users
may call landlines and cell phones for a fee; users may call each
other for free.** With a headset, Skypeä frees up awkward and
fatiguing equipment handling of ordinary telephones and cell
phones for people with MS.
“The audio fidelity is incredible. It’s so crisp and clear. No
scratchy technology,“ explained Cotton. “My business has grown
leaps and bounds thru contacts in Skypeä.”
And because of Cotton’s warm, friendly and helpful interaction
with Content Desk members, the partners set up a special area of
their forum just for Skypeä. And Cotton is the moderator of that
“Content Desk is the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” said
Cotton. “It’s a wonder, the brilliance of the conceivers of this.
It’s a limited membership with people dedicated to helping each
other succeed online. That tribal consciousness, ‘no one will be
left behind’ really impresses me. ”
To help others learn more and earn more, regardless of a
membership in the online group, Content Desk is hosting a 3-day
seminar / workshop in New Orleans from Sept. 9-11, 2005, with a
full year of support follow up afterwards. The focus is, “How To
Triple Your Income With Irresistible New Content
Publishing, Traffic Building and Sales Conversion Techniques -
The Three Proven Keys To Internet Success."
"Son of a gun, we're gonna have big fun, on the bayou…”
