Some of the takeaways from the show are:
Take the time to do some self-education
Take advantage of tools like www.evernote.com as you go through that educational process
Direct Monetization is:
- when you provide information for free and sponsors and advertisers pay for it. This is a method that takes a great deal of time to build as an effective way to make money.
- having an ecommerce site where you sell actual items on your website
- participating in affiliate sales where you well other people's products and receive commission
- having a membership site where people pay a subscription
Using your website to gain credibility and exposure so that people hire you
Using your website as a marketing arm to help brand you and your business
website, blog, whitepapers
No matter which method you choose remember to stay focused on where you are going. Pick 1-3 things to concentrate on and then move forward with those things.
-create content intentionally with a clear vision of what and how it supports your ultimate business goals
-don't gum up your site with things that dilute your message
-think about what kind of content would further your business goals
-do keyword searches - www.seobook.com can help with this
And above all, have goals that are written and visible to you on a daily basis.
