Okay, so I would never agree with anybody that said social media is a waste of time and blogging is for geeky people that still live with their moms, but lately I’ve been wondering “When am I going to have time for blogging?”
Trust me, I have this blog and its approximately 25 daily readers dear in my mind everyday, and I probably have 10-20 ideas of stuff I really want to blog about, but I’m seriously lacking the time to do it.
Unlike this post, I usually dont post two paragraphs – my posts have a certain level of research put into them, and I try to add screen shots, images, videos, etc.. to make life easy for folks who browse the net with ADD.
But ever since I started a online marketing & sales consulting company, I’ve completely lost the little time I had to dedicate to this blog. You may say startups are a shot in the dark, but in less than a month, I have 5 clients.
And when I take in consideration that this blog has only generated about $100 worth of revenue (from affiliate links), the amount of time invested absolutely does not correspond to the ROI. Thus, I’m focusing on the consulting area.
I’m working with local small/medium size companies that wouldnt necessarily participate in online marketing if it werent for me. I say that because I’m 98% sure that they wouldnt seek a ppc management firm or ever adventure themselves into social media by themselves. So they have me doing it for them.
A quick look into my portfolio:
2 Local Gyms: KnuckleUp Fitness – Outer Banks NC Gym (they have a blog & multiple capture pages for PPC)
The Fitness Warehouse – Chesapeake & Suffolk, VA Gym (their page will be up soon)
Four Seasons Landscaping – Outer Banks Landscape Design
The Red Sky Cafe – Catering Outer Banks (also under construction)
At this point, I’m doing all of the web design, the ppc management, the social media updates, the video editing, writing blog posts, setting up autoresponders….
So you can see why I’m not that much available for blogging. But that’s no excuse.
This community (though smaller than I’d like) is important to me and I shall find the time to keep up with it.
Hope you stick around with me.
