Yes, I’ve been very bad about posting to this blog… but I have been extremely busy!

About two months ago I took on a new project that entailed me overseeing a project for Mike Filsaime.  It started out as a part time piece but has since grown to what I feel can become a significant piece of what I do.  What is it I am working on?

Can’t tell you exactly

But I will say that right now I am in the process of doing a major re-working of this project.  As I see it, I want this to account for roughly a quater of what Mike’s empire is worth.  That will be no small potatoes!

I will say that I love what I am doing.  There are some fantastic things that we are doing that will make this concept one of the best one can find online.

The group Mike has working for him is a sharp and highly motivated.  There is a lot of talent and drive there and I am thouroughly enjoying being a part of it.  I spent a few days up at his office in Long Island recently and was able to get some good one-on-one time with Mike.  I will say he is a great guy and has an interesting outlook on what he does.  I can also say that having gotten to know him some I do agree wiuth what he is doing with his current focus.  Very smart on a number of levels.

Well, I feel that I have barely hinted about a few things but not given you any meat.  Sorry, but that is where I am at present.  I will keep you posted as it all develops.

Onward & Upward!

Damn… I know I’ve been quiet for a while (Busy, busy, busy doing GREAT things!) but this one deserves some note. 

I just finished reading about this over on the SearchEngineLand.com blog.  Google it seems has decided that they are going to start banning advertisers who are not playing by their rules.  They intend to ban them and keep them from starting up any new accounts as well.

This is a bold move is all I can say.  Made me think about what I’d been promoting and HOW .  I feel pretty safe but I am sure there are a healthy number of advertisers that have been doing some sketchy things to promote a variety of offers that Google does not like.

I urge you to take a quick trip over to SearchEngineLand.com and read all of the rest that they have to say.

Never a dull moment online!

Onward & Upward!

I wanted to take a small break from the marketing word today and focus some attention in a new, and very important direction.

I think that once you watch the video below you will understand exactly what I am thinking of here.

Great sound, great message… take a few minutes, hit the play button and listen in for a bit:

 


NICE!

Now take those thoughts with you and move forward the best way you can in your day.

Onward & Upward!

Wanna see and hear what Tony really has to say?

I’ve got a treat for you today as you can use the link below to go hear Tony speak for over an hour.

You can hear him speak on topics like:

  • How to put "fanatical" customer service to work in your business to truly create WOW! (Zappos.com enjoys 75% repeat business from their customers. This translates to lower marketing costs.)
  • How to maintain the culture and feel of a small company (where people actually LOVE to work) even when your growth is taking off like a rocket.
  • How to hire Super Stars! And much more…
