I’ve been elusive for the past few months. I guess I suck as a blogger…
A lot has happened.
I’m actually writing this from my mother’s house… where I grew up as a kid. I’m staying awake all night because it is the only way I know of to avoid getting jet lag.
Tomorrow my wife and I are leaving on a honeymoon trip to Tokyo, Japan.
Yeah, I got married. A little over a week ago.
I guess it’s no surprise that I started working with an online fitness company to free her up from her job a little over a year ago so we could do this whole online marketing thing together.
I’ve been working with a few different online companies and the contrast between them has taught me a valuable lesson. more
I first started this blog back in 2009.
At the time, I was documenting a journey. I was trying to figure out for myself if I could really make a living online.
And back then, this website served the purpose that I needed it to at the time.
But it’s becoming increasingly difficult for me to keep working on this domain. The domain name just doesn’t “fit” the way it used to.
That’s why all my marketing-related stuff is moving over to this website.
I’ll still write over here at Journey of My Own, but it won’t be about business and marketing. I’ll write more about life experiences and travel, and other things.
You’re welcome to read this blog, but from here on out, only personal stuff is going to be here.
All the business and marketing stuff is over here.
Thanks for understanding :)
Okay, nothing terribly useful in this update. Just a few odds and ends from the front lines of my life.
Expect more tips and strategies next time… more
So around the end of 2012, I completely re-engineered one of my autoresponders from the ground up.
This thing had been a dud for years no matter what I did.
I wrote it.
It didn’t convert.
I re-wrote it, it still didn’t convert.
I even asked an up-and-coming guru what to do and he gave me what I consider to be simultaneously the best advice and the worst advice rolled into one (that’s a story for another day though…).
But still the money just wasn’t coming in.
I was pretty convinced that email marketing just “doesn’t work.”
Well, something happened on a chilly Day in December when I set my new autoresponder live. more
