Im back !.. Let me fill you inBy Dean On January 3, 2009 Under Where It All Started
Yo yo peeps
How you all doing ?? I cant believe it… Christmas and New year just came and went real fast huh !!
I think its GREAT !! And why ??? Because now OUR year begins.. The year where we all shine and our lives take a turn in the direction we all want to be in
So just yesterday I returned from my New year celebration in Blackpool here in England.. I cant begin to tell you how frickin cold it was but we had fun anyway.
You may have also noticed that over the festive season I have neglected my online work. This is due to other obligations of visiting family and friends and then away partying over new year… But Im here now and ready to blast ! So to those of you that have emailed me recently I am working now to catch up and will be in touch soon.
Ok, what have I got to tell you ….
Well first off I mentioned recently that I took the money I got off family for Xmas and invested it into my business.. I wanted to demonstrate it to you rather than type it but it is proving to be harder than I thought. So until it is ready I better tell you.. I went and bought a mini camcorder !!!! Now I can shoot my own videos and upload online My Mrs laughed at me but I also got a tripod for it too, she thinks I look funny sat there with it set up in front of me…. lol
It’s actually really hard for me to sit in front of a camera and talk, seems really unnatural but i’ll get there soon. I guess for me its something that is stepping out of my comfort zone, you see others doing it like Alex Jeffreys and it looks easy. When I actually sat and started talking I began pausing, not knowing what to say and if I wrote it down to help it just looked badly rehearsed.
I think I just need to sit alone and record myself.. Im sure it will turn out ok, hell Im not recording artist or presentor so when it arrives please be kind .. Ha ha ha
Ok.. The traffic competetion set by Alex. Well honestly I have not done much to generate traffic so I expect there are many students flying past me right now due to my lack of online presence. I know a couple of emails I sent to my list generated me traffic but that actually wasnt the intention of them. These emails were about my Xmas gift so people didnt miss out but they did push a few hundred visits to here over a few days.
Prior to Xmas the traffic generating methods I had done were only really on the Warrior Forum. I did a couple of posts on there which bought in traffic, if you dont take part on there I suggest you do ASAP. ( www.warriorforum.com )
I use Twitter but dont see much from that yet at all as I dont use it effectively ( YET )
I think one major thing I have done is visit other blogs in this niche, I do get a lot of traffic from leaving comments on others blogs so I suggest if you are not yet, get out there and join in.
In the past I have also joined other forums but have not been active on them for several weeks.
To be honest not only with you but with myself I need to get my organisation back into gear. With the crazyness ( If thats even a word ) of Christmas I let things get a bit messy and that is my first new goal to get organised.
So as far as traffic generation that is pretty much it for me…So when do we post screen shots ( Any fellow students know ? )
Hope all your efforts are going well, I have spent a good hour and a half visiting students blogs today and commenting. I will get around to more of them tomorrow…
Tomorrow I also intend on doing a December goal review of the goals I set for last month and then set the goals for January, In fact I want to lay some goals down for the year of 2009 so be sure to come back for them.
