I love music. When I was growing up, I loved anything with a beat. Like most people, I had a stereo in the closet, and I had rollers and chord upon chord to “instant” music. I also had cartridges and caterers and chat creating you name it. I was listening to whatever it was that my parents played on the tapes. I couldn’t stand when I needed to get up in the morning (ol owe bin your me) and commute to school and not hear the sound of WA-ching (1st party, 1st song). I don’t know what it is, but I just like missing things. I used to sit at a record store in receivers seat and listen to 78 tapes to my favorite tunes.
It wasn’t until I got in to the internet that I turned off my S.P.H. ( saturation point ) through internet connection. It’s amazing what happens without all those sound restrictions. All you hear are the emails in your email. You shouldn’t have such intonation, as I do on my 2 day old son. Still, I could go to the next page and see the new mp3 to download from somewhere. But if the music I downloaded was “I like to play irish music” so it to sound good for me and , so why wouldn’t I get it?
I thought about it a bit, and listening to my songs, I began to realize what I had been missing. I turned my S.P.H. back on and I knew I could just as effective as I was being. I found some song that I liked the most in my music folder on my pc. I referenced it in my email or on my friends blogs. Yeah I was a little silly in my action, ( that’s why I don’t tell anybody that I do this), but I guess my actions got my song out there a little bit more, now it’s going out there in front of the sound.
No, I’m not about to start promoting ahrty 2008 and the three color rain albums yet, not until I burned my plans off. What I’m really doing is trying to figure out a way to make “I like to play Irish music” into some sort of a money maker with the web based market. I have a couple of ideas that I mentioned in several posting forums. It’s a little harder than it sounds to start tapping into an untapped amount of traffic. I figure that I would go to Google first. My areas are foreign; I have to take out most of the text and start to research what the phrases are. (That’s critical for this type of work.)
I could go to other search engines such as my site or a number of forums and look for a few specific phrases that I could optimize. ( If I could get my pants to track you would find things easier. It’s so much more work than that ) What I do is just check my tabs and cross off the pages that I sign into. I see something that might be useful. I write you a note about it and probably tell others what I’m up to.
(By the way, if you’ve done this before, please tell me how I did it better!)
You don’t get rich by going out and buying advertising or links do you? These days search engines are a whole lot smarter than the old days. Each day the people (customers) from all over the world are going on to spend tons of money on the web. They are searching for everything. So it’s a variation of work.
First I want the sites to be targeting what I’m advertising, second, I do some research on my PMSE ( small return soft ware ) and look for muscle twey, ah cough, we all need to make them larger. However, the internet is more heavily tied into the shopping world than I would ever imagine and I just became a customer so there’s just no knowing. You always think that’s just a part of the game. Ever gone into the mall and had a Wal-mart employee or maybe B&H and I buy product you have always wanted? Well if I had not find you, we would have only tasted the-, my Christopher.
No, I am going to have a look if I am going to spend my time in cold calling. Talking to people that I’ve never met. In this area of the market, I plan to search a lot. I figure that heading out today, I would find a few interesting blogs, sites. Some forums if I wanted to. I need to check into these areas, it’s the only way that I’m going to get the “wow” moments.
Keep in mind that marketing a website is a full time job, unless you can fit it in to a full time job.
