A-Z Blogging Challenge End Of Week 5 – A Week Of Reviews
So the week has come and gone again…it was the winter solstice the other day so days will be longer from now on…the year is half way done already.
As far as the blogging challenge went, it was reasonably easy to get an article a day out. The main theme of this weeks articles was reviews of products I have used in the past and thought were good. Or products that I am currently using and like.
I’ve bought a few good educational courses and a lot of crap in the past. Basically, now I only buy stuff from people I already know or on recommendations from people I trust.
Even then, you can still get a course that doesn’t really suit where you are at the present moment in your IM career or skill set. So before you buy anything, I’d ask yourself if you are really going to be able to implement what you are likely to learn. If not, you are wasting your money and probably your time too.
I still succumb to the odd warrior special offer from time to time as they are usually so cheap that it becomes a “no brainer” as the parlance goes. The thing is, if you never use it, it isn’t a no brainer, it’s just a waste of money.
Earlier this week a “how to make videos and get youtube traffic” course was offered to me for $8. Video is something that I would like to learn more about so I considered it. I read through the sales copy and the endless testimonials but then I thought do I really have the time for this. The answer was no, so I passed on it. That’s a good habit to get into.
Everyone goes on about avoiding the shiny object syndrome but even the most wizened or grizzled internet marketing veteran has to keep up to date and learn new techniques so it’s hard to avoid these things at times.
The posts from this week cover a few of the courses I think are good. The courses cover affiliate marketing and product creation and there is also a review of some software. I think I’ll be doing more of these reviews in the future.
I also learned a bit about the Alexa ranking this week so I’ll be putting out a post about this next week.
