Past Few Days

So it’s been about 6 days since my last post on here. My apologies. I’ve been writing down all of my ideas, just haven’t gotten the chance to type them up. There’s been a lot of commotion over here, as I’m currently working with a startup advisory publication (think online startup magazine) and we’re getting ready to launch soon so you can imagine the stress from that. I’ve also been busy writing a whitepaper on social media marketing. I put up a preview image on Twitter, so I suppose I’ll do the same here:

I’ll be releasing the whitepaper to my subscribers on the January 24th mailing. I’m doing my best to spread out the emails I send to everyone – flooding your inbox is the last thing I’d want to do. So what else is new?

Oh that’s right! I’ve hit 400 email subscribers as of yesterday. I’m really glad with the direction this blog has taken and the audience that I have built. Twitter still hovers around 300 followers, and site traffic is growing with about 10 new unique users each day. Small numbers, yes, but these numbers are pure, organic and important to me. I’ve run sites in the past where huge marketing campaigns have brought in over 12,000 unique visitors within 48 hours, but the users were generally one-stop viewers.

All of you who read my blog on a frequent basis, I appreciate you. You keep me doing what I’m doing and give me the ability to provide you with excellent content.

Thank you.

Your Next Idea Mailing List

So I was sitting at my desk today, and noticed that most of my posts start out this way. I also realized that many of my thoughts happen when I’m supposed to be doing something else. I would make a horrible caveman, since I’d probably be thinking about hunting for food rather than actually hunting for it. (Actually I think I’d make a fantastic caveman).

Anyway, it came to me like an epiphany, as if the heavens had opened and I was spoken to. My initial goal with this idea blog was to attract as many unique followers as I could – mentoring them, offering them ideas, and selling my knowledge to them. But then I realized that, in order to cultivate the right kind of following, I don’t want one-stop shoppers – I want people who actually are interested and care for a personal connection. I want to build a relationship with as many of my readers as possible (and right now that may not be much).

Now I want to invite you to subscribe to my mailing list. Within the emails I’ll be sending you, ALL of my Blueprints will be made available for FREE, as well as premium content and bonus offers. You seriously don’t want to miss out on something 100% and totally free!

Really – there’s no catch! I will not be misusing your email address or personal information in any way. This is between you and me and whatever you end up starting because of it.

So once again, I wish you the best of luck in all that you do. Hopefully I’ll see your email in the morning!

All the best.
