You Can Start Over

Start Over Road SignNot a New Year resolution, but I knew “something” had to be done with my blog. But what? The usual question.

I wasn’t putting “me” into it. In other words, I wasn’t giving you the respect you expected and deserved. 

What Happened?

I saw an Internet Marketer I trust, Tiffany Lambert, advertising a blog coaching course. It was affordable, I was ripe for coaching so I went for it.

Wow! Tiff’s checked my blog and given her initial comments. She was kind but honest. I’m still smarting from it, but, recognising that she’s right, I’ve started over. If you’ve visited before you may spot some changes!

My old posts have gone along with the old opt in form. I need to be posting most days – that’ll be fun! I’ll break this to you gently… I’ll be building a relationship with you.

1 Building Relationships

For me, Internet Marketing is about building relationships. You thought it was just about selling products and services, didn’t you? So did I when I first started.

Imagine your blog in a sea of 100 million blogs. How are people going to find you? Drilling down a notch, how are people going to know you’re there?

That’s where building relationships comes in. When I visit someone else’s blog and leave a comment, that person usually visits my blog and leaves a comment. Yeah – got a visitor and possibly the start of a relationship.

If I can do it, so can you.

2 Grab Your ‘Nads And Go

Says it all. You need ‘nads to visit other blogs and leave comments. Why? Because when you’re first starting out, everyone else seems to know so much more than you do. And it’s the same for everybody.

Male or female, you need big squishy ‘nads to be an Internet Marketer.

When you visit a blog, read the post carefully and make a sensible or thoughtful comment. Show the blog owner that you’ve actually read the post. If I had a penny for every “Good post” I’ve had, I’d be rich!

What are ‘nads? Gonads. Balls (I was trying to be polite…)

It’s good to start over. Clear out the crap and get fresh new stuff in. Looking forward to building a relationship with you.




Your Bit.

Do you make a fresh start in January? What do you do?

    Hey Shan,

    That’s the thing I love about the internet. Its so vast that even if you make the inevitable screwup or mistake, it is literally no big deal. And you’re right – relationships are the basis of good business.

    All the best for 2014!
