This week I met some cool Seattle-area internet marketers like Chris Guthrie who runs Make Money on the Internet and Caliban Darklock (the guy with the long hair and the “Here’s Johnny!” smile on the Warrior Forum) among other cool guys (and one gal).
I had to walk around the block a few times to work up the courage to go into the coffee shop the meeting was at. I will admit that meeting “big players” in internet marketing (ie. people actually making a healthy living income) is a bit intimidating for me. I guess on some level I feel like I’m just some dweeb doing some online shenanigans for a few bucks and that the “real” marketers are doing something dramatically different or won’t take me seriously or something.
Anyway, this week has been more of the same. Submitting articles, adding messages to my newsletters, working hard…
I also wasted a lot of time trying to determine a good digital camera to get for my trip to Thailand. One thing that’s cool about working for yourself is that you can waste massive amounts of time doing things like this without having to answer to a draconian boss.
Did you guys (and gals) see Glen’s SEO strategy on Viper Chill this week? What do you think about this? To me it seems way too simple and easy to be true. But if it’s effective, I’ll give it a shot. It sure sounds better than spending months writing and spinning articles for article marketing.
I think after I finish my 1-year experiment next month, I’m going to do an experiment with different traffic generation strategies. Maybe have 3 or 4 different websites and use different methods to promote each one to determine the most effective way (i.e. easiest way) to promote a website. Does this seem like something you would be interested in? And if so, do you have any promotional strategies you’d like to see me try? I’m considering giving Viper Chill’s Cloud Living a test drive. I’ve got a few other ideas too, but their not really packaged up neatly into a shiny e-book.
PS: OMG! Next week is the AffiloJetpack launch and if you’re chomping at the bit to get a butt-load of cool awesome content for niches like weight loss, men’s dating tips, relationship advice, self-help, among others, consider checking out my AffiloJetpack bonus package.
If you’re thinking of entering these niches, you need to understand them well. Do you know what a PUA is (or why one would neg an SHB)? Do you know why drinking water is important to weight loss? Do you know what the “no contact” rule is and why it’s so powerful? Do you know what it means to align your vibrational frequency with your intentions? Well I do. I can rewrite some of the content articles you get with AffiloJetpack (so that they count as unique content) in a way that will earn your visitors’ trust and not just make you look like some half-baked marketing tool that pretends to be an expert.
Plus, I’m offering free beer. Can it get any better?
