Marketing Tips For Dummies, Do Not Overlook What You Already Have!

Sometimes I need to just step back and slow down a bit and use what I call the "Marketing for dummies, do not overlook what you already have" method. I have several reasons for making myself do this, and let me explain why.

I sometimes get bored with working on one project and tend to let it lay after hours and hours of work. This can lead to both good things and bad things, as it tends to make one unfocused and scatterbrained in ones day to day operations.

I have a couple of websites I have built that for whatever reason I kind of walked away from, and pretty much ignored, that have been sitting on page one position one of Google for months without any kind of attention.

After watching many people over at Wealthy Affiliate, where I am a member, working their buts off trying to archive the same results I kind of started looking ion my own back yard and decided only a dummy would ignore a sure thing.

Thus, I felt I needed to share with everyone that when you work a steady schedule, as I did when I built these sites, you will get results. Once you get them, keep going! Set yourself a day to day schedule and follow it and you will be amazed the amount of work you can get done, and all the cool results you will watch happen.

As I was thinking about this a great idea began to form on what to do with one of these sites, and now I am exited again to revisit this niche and see what I can create with it. Half of the fun is watching thing happen from the result of taking action on what we learn, and this is one of the greatest drives for me. I love to create things.

I guess what I am saying is that avoid getting sidetracked form your main goals and keep focused on what you want to create, and you are halfway there.

I look forward to again exploring my niche in using home remedies, and am remembering some of the crazy times and near disasters I had doing some of the home projects. I still have some of the ugliest and most expensive soap bars ever made, and my neighbors still talk about that project.

Keep and eye on me, you never know what I might come up with this time around!

Good to remember. I have a few as well and just don't have time right now. I do know they're there though and every so often review them, knowing they are still good sites and, hopefully, their time will come.

Way to get back on the horse and lead by example. I haven't been marketing anything for a number of months because I found it very hard to monetize my pages even once traffic started rollin through. I think my niches were too out of bounds for my personal interest to carry the process. You make me think I might pick it up again, but with a new topic that's closer to home. Thanks for the inspiration...

Thank you for sharing your experiences. One of my New Year's resolutions involved making more money from my blogs, and I figured I needed more publicity. I started tweeting more last month, and now I am writing more blog entries. In general, I found people were the most interested in my articles shortly after I wrote them. I am not submitting blog posts every day because I take a Sabbath one day a week.

I would love to know what you did when you set up those websites that got them to number one and kept them there for so long. I have a little squidoo page that is gaining ground every day going up by 1500, and 2000, but when you start at 100K+ still doesn't get you to tier 1 very quickly. (It's only been up for 2 weeks, so I'm probably just impatient). I'm at 19,153 or so now. I've also got another website that isn't getting much traffic, but that I've been backlinking and increased traffic, but still no sales. Any advice?

On the two that are stuck on one as I like to say, lol I added a blog, or page a day for around 90 days straight. I shared them in places that would get good quality back links to the sites, and I wrote an article a day, sometimes more, pointed them at them. They were also good keywords to rank that actually bring in traffic on their own. In other words, lot came together at the same time for these sites, Now, the next step is to just keep working them, and adding quality content, and they continue to perform.

Hi Shawn, great article and message. I did kind of wonder what had happened to the "using home remedies" site which I had seen on your past articles. Good luck going forward, Regards Keith

Good idea to review your projects and to refocus. As you say very easy to get distracted.
