Happy holidays to one and all.
Are you satisfied with your online performance for 2007? Did things go as planned? Did you even plan? Do you have a business plan?
I am asking these "provocative" questions to get you to thinking. If you are satisfied with this year's results, keep doing what you've been doing. If not, maybe take a step back and do a reckoning of how your online business is doing (actually, it's good to do a reckoning in any event). Sometimes we get swept along with what we're doing even if it may not be the most profitable thing to do or even if we're doing it not quite the right way.
Have you been focusing on doing one online project at a time? Or do you keep getting sidetracked by new and exciting offers that land in your inbox? Man, just downloading all those freebie gifts that come this time of year takes hours! If you haven't worked that into the schedule you can be totally thrown off (like what is happening to me!!!).
There is so much going on out there. So many new products to check out. We need to set aside specific time in our schedule to keep abreast of what's going on in the world of Internet Marketing. But by no means let this completely take over your day. It's so easy for that to happen.
If you make any new year's resolutions at all, let one of them be that you will strive to focus on one project at a time. And plan, plan, plan. It's too "easy" not to plan. But that can cause us to waste mounds of time.
These are my thoughts at the close of 2007.
Now, for some Holiday cheer.
Go watch this video made by Andy Jenkins from Stompernet. He's going to give you a new piece of software totally FREE. It's called Scrutinizer and will helpyou look at your website with a new pair of eyes - eyes that help you see whatyour visitors see. Then you will be able to make changes in layout in order toincrease your conversions. The video is only 6 minutes long. It's cute and tells you exactly how to get the software.
Also, if you are interested in learning how to triple your conversions, go watch Andy's free Stompernet video on how to do that. It's an excellent and eye opening video.
