    How's it going BHW.

    I am going to be spending the next few months on new projects now that I am experiencing lots of new found time after I left my last project. I have a very nice cushion and thus I have decided to create a journal thread. It will be used to document notes, random ramblings and ideas, as well as track progress.

    The goal of this project I am doing is simple, to find those that are working, but just aren't making what they could and working with them to make more from their websites, campaigns, etc. etc. There are three main projects I am looking to focus on in the coming months:
    • This Joint Venture I am creating.
    • Delving more into Media Buying and Mobile Marketing
    • Operating a separate Lead Generation business from my previous venture.

    About my specialty:
    • I am best at market research, monetization optimization and finding alternative traffic sources for products and websites.
    • I attempt to turn every website or product into a BUSINESS. Too often, marketers don't run their websites like the businesses they are and yet wonder why they aren't experiencing business returns.

    This journal won't be your typical "This is what I did today", I am going to go into as much detail as my time will permit me to as I do run other things. I will do my best and to be completely fair to those that will follow this, I will be diverging to do little experiments and whims for friends that run Brick and Mortar businesses and ask for my help.

    So, let's see how it goes, be patient with me.

    First Quick Update:

    I am going to post:
    -Interesting Links to articles, industry news and important things to read
    -Summary of tips and simple tricks
    -Case studies
    -notes and things I learn
    -Videos and other things
    -Progress

    I posted this just to jot down what type of things I am going to put out in the future. This is going to be like my notepad outside of my phone, laptop, and tiny spiral.

    Hi!

    Good idea. Perhaps you can also release an ebook in the future. :)

    I'm not really one for ebook releases too often, they are good for raising capital for other more long term projects or for getting leads for long term customers, but releasing ebooks in the IM industry is good for a bit of money or networking, beyond that if you have things to offer that you can't outsource or train someone to run for you or just isn't worth the time effort then perhaps.

    Update #1:

    With the long weekend, I was able to sit down and map out a few ideas for what I wanted to work on. I will go into detail on each of my projects as I much as I can.

    #1 The Joint Venture
    #2 Mobile Marketing

    First The Joint Venture,

    I submitted the joint venture a week or so ago, but to expound more on what I will be doing in it a summary is:
    -Often on blackhatworld, I see a variety of posters complaining of getting loads of traffic but little income, a website that is making pennies in a good niche, etc. etc. Basically, my joint venture will be to work with members that are getting traffic from either SEO, Paid traffic, whatever, and 1. Increase quality traffic relevant to your niche, 2. Work on the site and increase quality content and develop their sales funnel, 3. Find alternative monetization strategies (my specialty). I've raised a site getting a decent amount of traffic making $20 a day to $100 a day within weeks.

    It will be interesting. I have done this here and there for associates in the past casually, but I believe it is one way I can offer value to the forum and still use my time efficiently.

    #2 Mobile Marketing

    Let's start with the basics:

    To begin, if you have not, go to IMGrind.com they have an abundance of information on everything ranging from Lead Generation to Mobile Marketing. I will be posting summarized notes here on each ebook in the coming days in this thread and in the making money section separately. If anyone is interested in how I syndicate information to keep myself informed on the general happenings within this industry or others, I will do a post run through of that.

    Recommendation:
    -imobitrax tracking software installed for your mobile campaigns, it's the bomb.
    -if you are doing CPA be sure to have a RevivedMedia account.

    I am going to be capturing leads from mobile media buys, as well as funneling social media traffic (most people use social media through mobile/tablet more than desktops) into offers and leads which I probably will just mess around with and test a few things. I will post a few example landers and such as I get them built over the next few days as well as sample ideas.
