How do you feel about promotion?

I don't know about you, but I find that when I spend any time on the web, I see promotion up the wahzoo.

It's the good and the bad about the Internet.

Whether it is "good" or "bad" has everything to do with your perspective.

If you are someone who is wanting to share a service or product, it is the type of thing you would want to know about and, more importantly, use to your advantage.

Lately I have been encouraging people that I know to take advantage of the web. There is nothing better than awakening in the morning, finding out that you have made money while you have been sleeping.

Because I make hypnosis and stress relief recordings, I have had this experience, and I can tell you, it is pretty darn cool. In addition, you can never discount the value of working in the most comfortable attire possible.

Lately I have put my mind and heart into learning as much as I can about how best to share what I know by using the Internet. One-on-one, people I speak with can see how what I can do can impact them. Now I feel that it is important that I take this and convert it into "web-ease", and share it with as many people as possible.

Because I get gazillions (well, not really, but it sure seems like it) of emails, I am exposed to different things. Today it was something about effective blogging. Since I am new to blogging, and want to make the most of it, the email, and the program caught my eye.

The catch? I need to blog about them to receive their blogging program. Quite ingenious, really. People who read blogs will probably be the ones who write them, and what better (free) way to advertise, than to have those who blog tell others about the program?

So...what I have been told to do is to post some code in my blog, which will follow at the end. If it looks interesting, and you blog, then why not tell others about it, as well? In all fairness...I usually like to tell people about things AFTER I have had experience with them. However, in this case, since the program is free, what the heck?

After I have had a chance to look at it, I will get back to the blog, and share my thoughts.

In the meantime, the holidays are upon us, and if you haven't considered it already, think about what tint you have on these days...Is it one you want? If not, consider changing it to something else more enjoyable. Yes, I know it's not the easiest thing to do, but it is do-able, and the more you do it, the easier it gets - REALLY! If you're not sure how to do it, you're welcome to contact me, and I'll see what I can to do to assist. You might be surprised at how simply it can be, once you know how to do it.

Happy Holidays!

Here's the code I was telling you about:

I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.
