Yes yes.. another month gone, another Paypal balance transferred. I hope everything has been productive for you guys and gals in 2009 – I’ve been doing my best to keep busy and remain afloat in this massive Internet ocean. As you’ve been noticing I’m starting to get back in the groove with regards to posting and keeping fresh content for the search engines – and in actuality, I post because I like to hear from you guys (as you’ve probably noticed I don’t do tutorial type posts anymore).
I think the biggest obstacle was figuring out how I can shift my objectives while still expressing myself in a fashionable manner. Making money online is no longer a mystery to me, but rather a daily task which I absolutely love doing.
So Valentines day is approaching, and if you haven’t already, it’s time to get some of that seasonal affiliate money, right? I dunno.. I find I’m more motivated if I treat everyday like it’s a special occasion to make money online. Sure, people’s online shopping frequency may increase over Valentine’s day – but it’s one day, one month and one shot.
I’m definitely considering running a few ads that will funnel traffic to some CPA offers like Nintendo Wii, iPhone and other popular gifts desired by the women we love. Let’s face it guys, we do most of the shopping on Valentines day – so if you are thinking of running a few campaigns or promoting a particular product, be sure you’re targeting the male audience. If you’re great a targeting niche markets, then I would say fuck the male market and really snipe the female shoppers, because most big time players are probably targeting the male audience – which means there’s less competition towards the female purchasing traffic.
Here’s an idea: Create a little one page website with a poll that collects information regarding “what do you want for Valentines day?” and advertise the page via your facebook, twitter, etc.. You could pretty much gather results and have your campaigns pointed out to you. Hmmm.. That really wouldn’t take much to put together. Good job Elijah – Thanks Elijah, you’re so smart – Aww, thanks man. I really appreciate it.
What do you guys have planned for the Valentines day traffic?
Veronica and I have severely shifted our diet to consist of 99% organic goods – and it feels amazing! Physically, I noticed a decrease in the “bloated” look of my face/gut within the first week. It’s now been 2 months, and I wake up feeling energized almost every morning – and that is something that I never felt before.
Along side eating all organic, we’ve stopped purchasing meat and dairy products, but we’re not necessarily vegan – let me explain: I could never go straight vegan or vegetarian because I love meat. Steak, chicken wings, steak, um.. steak… I could never give up the pleasure I get from the combination of a bbq, a steak and a cold beer. What we’ve done though is stopped purchasing meat and dairy products, so it will never be found in our own fridge. If I’m over at a friends, or we’re out at my favorite steakhouse, then you better believe I’m treating myself – but that is the keyword. It’s a treat, not a daily consumption.
We decided this based on many obvious factors such as the chemical preservatives, steroids, and other variables that are in the meats served to the general public, as well as the sheer brutality of how the animals are kept and killed in the processing plants.. it’s like something out of a horror movie – and we just couldn’t bare with the thought of purchasing and eating something that was gutted alive while hanging upside down by it’s ankles on a zip line.
Anyways.. I wanted to comment as I’m sure a few of you are of the vegetarian/vegan/organic persuasion: eating well makes you fart like a hell storm! Not that Veronica and I ever had problems letting it rip before (quite the opposite) but it seems to be more regular and often now that our diet has shifted – which is awesome because it’s free laughs!
I guess the body needs to detox and rid itself of all the crap built up from the years of digesting chemically processed shit. Also, we found this awesome company located here in Toronto that delivers our organic produce weekly to our door for $35! They’re called FrontDoorOrganics, and they provide organic food delivery – everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to organic shampoo, soap, condiments.. pretty much everything you would need. Sweet!
I’m in the final stages of completing NicheOnDemand.com – which will be serving as my home base for niche website services etc.. Feel free to check it out and give me some feedback! Anyways, I need to implement some sort of shopping cart element into the site, and want something a little more diverse than a Paypal button. I’ve heard of e-junkie and a few others… Do you guys have any suggestions based on your own personal experiences? I need something that gives me the ability to track, provide receipts emails to clients etc.. You know what I’m talking about.
So, what do you guys think based on what it is that I’m doing?
