I’m writing on my private blog again starting now. It’s just before 3 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
Happy October! 🙂
Wow. My first video is closing in on 1000 views. I just sent out this email.
You could do this yourself – maybe make a video about your book or website.
Then send an email like mine to friends or to a list.
Of course, I recommend using Twitter, too! And Pinterest. And Facebook.
I’m sure this will work for you!
I found a very useful tool yesterday. I’m using it for free and so can you if you choose.
I made this in about 20 minutes.
The URL that I posted in the video is not the important thing (Though you’re welcome to check it out if you wish).
The thing is this – if it’s your business or your CAUSE or whatever you want to get the word out about (someone’s birthday?) – this is powerful.
I am closing in on 1000 views of this video in under 21 hours.
It’s not earth-shattering, but it’s very, very useful.
And it’s free to try. That’s what I did last night!

P.S. Are You Growing Your Business Fast Enough? Here’s my new blog!
I know a lot of writers read about the craft of writing. This post is not about that. It’s about getting legitimate eyeballs to see your website or blog or video.
Read the previous three posts.
Here’s my current update…
Some of you know that I have an alien friend who speaks through me on Twitter. (Pause.)
You read that right.
Now I’m only going to say this once in print and here it is. I’m not crazy.
I understand that this character is a character. OK?
On with the show.
You can read his Twitter feed at http://Twitter.com/TweetGeistGuy
When people follow Tweet Geist Guy on Twitter he sends them a Thank You Tweet aimed at them as in: @hotrichgirlauthor
(An alien stuck out in space can dream, can’t he?)
Included in the thank you is a link to a video we made this morning for free. This video is titled Welcome & Thank You! Which Are You? 😉 and now I can actually track how fast it gets more visitors relative to the Thank Yous that are sent.
I will keep you updated, but it had 84 views and after 10 more Thank You Tweets it had 104 views. Will this remain constant? I don’t know, but by my count that’s 20 views for 10 Thank Yous. I may have to talk to a buddy about automating those Thank Yous.
This buddy is not an alien and lives in San Diego.
I’m just about to go to bed.
This is an update for the previous two posts.
Just over 5 1/2 hours and the first video has 617 views.
The second has 399 views.
Over 1000 total views and I think that’s very good.
You could do the same to promote your blog or website.
I’m amazed that this level is free.
…and here’s my other blog where I’ll explore this more in the future:
Please don’t miss the lessons I’m learning. If you read the previous post you’ll know that I created a video with Animoto. Then I created another video 20 minutes after the post. It took me about 40 minutes to create those videos and I didn’t upload anything. It was free.
What does this have to do with you?
Well, you can do it. Just. Like. Me.
I assume that you would like more visitors to a website. Oh…you don’t have a website?
OK. What about your blog?
Would you like more visitors?
I’m closing in on 600 total views of these videos and as I write this that means my videos received those visitors in less than 4 hours.
I’ve never personally experienced legitimate visitors like that.
If you have or you do, well, God bless you.
It’s new to me.
Here are the videos:
(Don’t worry about my URL – although you’re welcome to visit – because you can insert your own!)
I just tried Animoto and I’ll bet you will have as much fun as me. After I made the video in about 20 minutes or so I added it to my Pinterest page. You don’t have to approach it from a business perspective if you’d rather not. Just enjoy!
Recently I decided to mix it up a bit with my writing. I started a new blog about making money online and today I submitted two articles to EzineArticles.com. One is titled “Use Caution Making Money Online” and the other is “College Preparation For First Generation College Students”. It takes about a week to get articles approved, so I’ll let you know when that happens. If you haven’t checked out EzineArticles.com I encourage you to do so. You may find that you like to write for them a little bit. At the very least it’s another way to practice the process of writing. With this and what I’ve written there today I’m over 2500 words. Now what about those aliens?
I just started another blog that is not related to writing, except insofar as a writer can convince or illuminate or educate.
My new blog is about online business that you can engage in at home.
I’ve mentioned earlier that I have two new mentors.
You’re welcome to visit anytime.
You might learn something that will lead you to have the freedom to do what you’re passionate about whether that’s writing or something else.
Who knows? You might learn a guerrilla method of selling books or something.
Here it is!
