I’m back (sort of)Posted by William
Its been way too long between drinks essentially because I have been swept away with a whole heap of business stuff that I was forced to put this on wayside.. way way side.
So I will be doing my best to start writing in this thing.
What have I been up to?
In the past year I have focused predominantly on my internet businesses. Remember this? Well these have grown nicely and as of now, I receive a nice half a million hits a month for each site.. bringing in some nice admob advertising cheques (more like paypal payments) each month. Nothing to really rave about but it pays off a car, without having to do anything for it.. nice.
I have also been doing affiliate marketing which has been great fun and rewarding and now have taken up various consulting projects, making recommendations to various companies on how to optimise their web presence. I am still amazed that there are so many companies out there who simply havn’t moved past the initial stages of SEO and PPC. Adwords accounts still have 1 group and 1000 keywords and SEO is all about keyword stuffing and meta-tags.
I have been under the impression that much of this stuff is common knowledge but it just isn’t. I have heard from Internet Marketers that teaching these companies and organisations the new way of the internet is in fact ‘the next big thing’. Although I never doubted them, I never really thought about how it could impact me. I do my thing, stay under the radar, automate my businesses so I can support my lifestyle. Thats it. What I never really understood was the value I was generating simply trying to build and automate these profitable online businesses.
What I’m getting at here is that for many Internet Marketers out there with a decent knowledge of the ins and outs of online marketing, understand how valuable your skillset is. You can create an average full time income because you feel like it, in whatever geographic location your in and yet we take it for granted. This is special and strangely enough we are the only ones who don’t realise how special it is.
