Well this a quick update as it has been quite a hectic week! I have had so much going on in my offline life that I have hardly had time to stop for breath. I really hate weeks like this!
We decided last year that now my husband is retired we would move house. Not only will we downsize but we plan to move closer to two of our children.
One day this week was spent looking at houses which suddenly came on the market and was 100 mile round trip. There is not much coming onto the market in the area we want to move to so they are snapped up when they do.
Another day just flew by baby-sitting for our daughter, and I had to do two more 95 round trips which took up half a day each.
On top of this we are blitzing the house to get it tidy enough for the Estate Agent to take pictures. The main living rooms are presentable enough but a couple of the bedrooms have turned into junk rooms and my office is badly in need of a declutter.
Well it’s the end of the 5th week of the 60 day challenge.
It’s been quite a challenge this week as I have lost the best part of 2 days due to other commitments but I have continued to put in at least 60 minutes a day driving free traffic through forum posting and blog commenting.
I am finding it pretty mind numbing and keep thinking there has to be an easier way. It’s hard to keep going when you can’t see results but I know that this can take time.
Dean is in the process of changing his affiliate platform too so we can track the optins that we get when we send traffic to his squeeze page which will be a great help even though it’s going to take a couple of weeks more to set it up.
It’s been very frustating not knowing what optins we got from of a particular traffic generation method.
When that’s up and running we will also be able to choose from a number of landing pages to send the traffic which could help.
I can hardly believe that another week has flashed past. This time last week I was in sunny Spain getting ready to return home after a wonderful 4 week break although my husband tells me I spent too much time on the laptop.
The truth is that I enjoy the making money online business. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t. If I had the time I could spend hours at it!
It was quite a shock to the body to come back to the cold here after getting used to 20C+ sunny days in Spain.
Although I was unable to put in my minimum of 60 minutes a day trying to drive free traffic to my blog for two days last week I have been making up for it this week.
Now there’s a challenge! I do love a challenge don’t you? I’ve just finished Dean Hollands Quick Start Challenge and now I’ve just taken on this one.
Following the huge success of the Quick Start Challenge I jumped at the chance to be one of Dean’s licenced partners. As part of the program to keep us all on our toes Dean has just come up with the idea of the “Turn $100 into $2000 in 60 Days Challenge”.
Module 4 of Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge is called the “Instant Internet Lifestyle”. Instant? Is it really possible?
This weeks module is all about how to make money online by creating an automated business with recurring income so you can lead the internet lifestyle if that is what you want.
Just a quick recap about the previous Modules:
Module 3 of Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge is about email list building.
Once you get your blog set up and start to get visitors with the free traffic methods that Dean recommends in Module two ( How to get traffic to your blog) you need a way of capitalizing on that traffic. Dean calls it Push Button Income and Automation. If only!
In the first video Dean starts off by talking about getting people to know, like and trust you. He says to do that you have to establish a working relationship with them by getting them to your blog to read your posts.
Well, that is one way I guess, but not the only way. I know marketers who don’t blog or at least don’t blog regularly and still manage to get people to like know and trust them. I think a lot of people have turned to social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest to do that now. ( more on this later)
