How to sell your products and services online.

Almost no progress over the weekend

My plan was to finish a simple flash game for attracting more visitors to own of my websites, but as sometimes happens – life intervened. I was able to sit down at the computer to code for ah hour at around 8pm last night. Caring for an infant is exhausting. All you moms out there I really know how hard you have to work!

On another note, we are filing our first eviction in 3 years or real estate investing. That is a great track record, but I rather not do it. Sometimes you just have no choice. To have even a slight chance of getting our money we have to go to court. I feel for the family that has to move out, but we can not afford to run a charity.

New Year – New Outlook – New Goals

Now that initial shock of caring for a newborn has passed, I am ready to get back to business. My daughter is almost 3 months old now.  She starts to sleep more at night, that leaves more of the night to work on my world domination plan.

I came to a realisation that the only way to freedom is internet business. Real estate is great, but you have to be there all teh time. You need to go see houses, buyers and sellers. Unless, of course, you are a multi millionaire and can just buy and sell skyscrapers and shopping mals or big apartment buildings.

To have freedom to travel and work from anywhere I need to be location independent. I have this dream of renting and RV and driving around the USA one summer. To make this work, I need a business that will run itself with minimum involvement form me. The only way I see it – take it to the internet. I allready have multiple websites up and running, but only one has potential to bring any substantial income this year. So now I have crafted a plan to launch 2 products taht I can sell online. And one of them has the lucrative “monthly subscibtion” feature.

I am working on the first one already. I will be releasing a Beta pretty soon. And the best part of it – I am planing on giving the base version out for free.

So here it is. How that I have promissed to you, that I am gonna do it, I have no other choise, but to do it.

New website is in the google index. How to promote it?

My newest creation – www.nestery.com is now in google index. It took 3 weeks to get all the pages there, but it is finally all in there.

How should I go about promoting this website? I will email all fellow investors I know to add the houses they have to it. That should add couple  hundred houses. How would you go about promoting it for buyers?

My plan:

    1. place adds on craigslist
    2. respond to adds on craigslist
    3. need more ideas…

      Anybody has a good idea how to get trafic?

      Online marketing journey update

      After spending 3 weeks on vacation and a month refocusing on new priorities (online marketing) I am happy to launch a new website. Actually a couple of new websites.

      First one was for life coach. I spent couple evenings setting it up. It is running on wordpress platform. Do you realize that wordpress is not only for blogging? If you need update the content constantly, wordpress is an excellent choice. So there is that, just initial content, need to do much more search engine optimization…..

      Second one was created, because I felt a vacuum in one particular market segment. It was homes for sale with owner financing or rent to own programs. In essence a site where people can find homes for sale without bank qualifying. I found couple of those, but they where localized, none had enough homes to be effective. So here it is – a national rent to own and owner financed homes for sale website.

      It still is in beta and I am adding features as I go….. and waiting for google to show up. Once it is in the index what would be the best way to promote it?

      Change of Direction

      Change is inevitable. Change has come. I have been spending less and less time on real estate and more and more time on online marketing. I find that I enjoy it more then dealing with buyers and sellers. My online marketing is still related to real estate, but I am looking into other things as well.

      I just spent good half an hour searching for online marketing blogs. Unfortunately all I was able to find is a bunch of crap. Pardon my French. Almost all the blogs I found where so overloaded with ads, had almost no information about online marketing and tried to sell me something. I realize everyone needs to make a living, but what happened to just sharing information?

      Has anyone found a decent blog about online marketing?
