Maybe a better title is “The Real Reason My Friends and I Were Broke and What We Did About It.” No, it’s not gonna be a bunch of Law of Attraction posts, though that’s part of it.
I’m trying to think of things I haven’t talked about, and also go through certain things in a more organized fashion – where do I start and what can I say that would be useful to a new person, or a checkpoint to someone with an intermediate marketing backround?
Anytime I market a product I have to make a decision. I once thought it was smartest to just find a balance between the two, however, a lot will depend on how good the product is vs how necessary.
Traffic rules the internet. If you can figure out the fine points of getting people to a site, to the point that you can turn the volume of people to a site up or down at will, the argument could be made that you could put off learning about conversion until another day.
The minute you get the formula out of your head that yields only 1 – 1.5% of some mass number of people converting the better. Before you even try to get more visitors, think about getting the best visitors. Get the ideal person to come to your site in search of answers they are willing to pay for. That’s it.
- One of my bumps made the widget. I’m interested to see how much traffic that’ll bring me as it gets to be morning rush on the East coast.
- The BUMPzee entries page is totally addictive. Before I knew it my comments were taking up half the page. I had to make myself close the tab.
- BUMPzee sends more than twice the unique visitors MyBlogLog does with a quarter of the effort, and my blog isn’t specifically about affiliate marketing, though I plan to do a series just for BUMPzee readers. The visitors who arrive make at least ten times the page views, no exaggeration.
- I love the Entries feature. It’s much clearer than Technorati’s WTF (and isn’t, you know, stupid, since its name basically tells you what it is for.)
- One thing I’d love to see on BUMPzee is a rolling place for BUMPzee-related questions. It feels rude to contact Scott through his page. Do you mind, Scott?
