So I forgot to post yesterday. I’ve got a lot of things going at once. I think I’m going to drop the Accountability Tuesday idea and just make Accountability Updates every once in a while. Actually, scratch that, I almost coped out just then. I’ll just have to remember to make those weekly posts every Tuesday. It’s just frustrating to review my posts and see things still pending due to others. When people don’t get in touch with you when they say they will, they deserve a three-fingered slap. I’ve got folks holding up my progress!…that’s my job…not anyone else’s…I guess they didn’t get the memo.
They say, when you start making money you attract more money and I truly believe in this. Oh, how the tables will turn when business picks up and people’s commission/pay check depends on me. When I have folks begging to do business with me I will only do business with those who are on top of their game. None of these folks who say, “I’ll call you tomorrow” or “I’ll shoot you an email by the end of the day” and FAIL to do so. I should have the right to fill a tube sock with sand and hit those people upside their heads, like Homey the Clown used to do on “In Living Color” back in the day.
Or better yet, how about some good ole’ fashioned hazing. To do business with me you have to endure an intense ‘screening’ process.
HAH!….but I digress. So here is the accountability update:
1. I didn’t place my Virtual Bird Dog course order because of a bit of a cash-flow issue. I’ve reprioritized this and I’ll have to do this after my check arrives from the freelance project I completed.
2. Completed the freelance web projects for the most part so that’s a huge plus.
3. Dropping the VA idea for now. This is due to the postponement of the implementation of my web strategy. I will officially launch my huge web marketing campaign after deal #1. I feel like I have a decent web presence right now that can hold me over until then.
4. Additional squeeze pages are being postponed. This is due to the fact that I’m still waiting on my lawyer to get back to me with some crucial information. The information is regarding birddogs and his information will determine the copy for the ads that will attract birddogs who will in turn send prospects to the squeeze page.
For the next week. I’m going to solely focus on getting out my direct mail campaign to homeowners in SW Champaign. This is tied to the purpose of the Mozenda videos I made a week or so back regarding screen-scraping the Champaign county assessors’ website. I plan on using a Yellow Letter campaign including handwritten letters and envelopes. However, I’m going to do this all with a computer and with my own handwriting and I’ll use mail-merge (no way will I write by hand to 450 people). This may not make a lot of sense right now, but I’ll post a video about it soon.
