Recently my blogging has slowed down to a trickle. It’s not for want of interest, it’s just that I’ve got so many internet marketing projects on the go at the moment that something had to give, and unfortunately my blog writing has suffered!
The thing that has really amazed me is the number of visitors to my blog. I havn’t written a blog post for over three months, and in that time the number of visitors has almost trebled. I can’t explain this, but I’m very grateful to know that there is so much interest out there in internet marketing.
The increase in numbers really got me thinking – just why do people visit my blog? I’m not the most erudite of writers, and there are many other internet marketing blogs out there. But the visitors keep coming in increasing numbers, so I must be doing something right! The same is true of my YouTube channel – over 63,000 views of my videos.
Let’s just think for a moment about the blog site title – “Easier Internet Marketing”. Is it the possibility of an easier way into internet marketing that attracts readers? In my view, ‘easier’ means less mumbo jumbo. I want to take away the mystique that surrounds internet marketing, and show people just what can be achieved.
I’m no expert – there are enough of those around already. In recent months it would appear that everybody (and their dog) has been jumping on the one-to-one mentoring band wagon. It can be quite lucrative, so who can blame them? I’ve been part of a mentoring scheme in the past, and I can vouch for the fact that it does make a real difference – provided that your mentor is the genuine article!
I have been fortunate to have Neil Stafford of the Internet Marketing Review as my personal mentor, and under his guidance I have learnt a great deal. He has also helped me to develop my real interest in the use of educational videos.
How do you find the right mentor? One clear step is to join a couple of online forums, and see whose name is being positively referred to. Make enquiries, ask for testimonials, and do your homework! It will be worth it in the end.
Keep dreaming those big dreams,
