The statistics of my websites are very important to me because I can see my strengths and weaknesses. I also get to see how many people visit my websites. The Jetpack feature for WordPress doesn’t show many visitors for this blog at around less than 10 per day. I couldn’t believe that, so I checked my statistics on Hostgator (they host this blog), and I found statistics that showed over 50 unique visitors per day. That’s a lot different from less than 10 (and sometimes 0) visitors per day for the WordPress statistics. Sometimes, we just see the wrong statistics or see something in the wrong way but don’t know it until we see it in the right way.
Now that January is done and February has just begun, it is important to remember our New Year’s Resolutions. Most people stop working on their resolutions by Valentine’s Day, and that is something that shouldn’t happen (if the resolution is good and productive). Although I haven’t achieved my goal of making over 1k a month yet, I have achieved another goal. One of my resolutions was to do Lego animations with no software–just a camera. Doing the Lego animations took me a very long time even though the videos are short. I am putting all of my Lego animations on my Lego Station blog which can be found here. I also got the Squidoo Lens of the Day because of a Squidoo lens I did about Lego animations as well.
I’m working hard on my New Year’s Resolutions, and I hope you are too.
You must be open to other ideas and suggestions from other people. Your customer may know something that you don’t. Your customer may even be able to help your business grow. Telling someone they’re wrong and walking away turns off any desire the customer had to buy something or talk with you. Here is the better approach:
I am open to your suggestions to improve.
By improving ourselves, we become better individuals
If you are trying to get to the next level as an entrepreneur or as a business, I highly recommend doing videos. Videos are very helpful and will take you to the next level of your business or entrepreneurship. I am working on Lego animations right now which I hope will eventually make me a part of the YouTube Partnership Program.
Being dependent on a benefactor is a habit that we must eliminate as soon as it poses a threat. If the benefactor we are dependent on does not help us at a time of need or do a simple task, we have to do it ourselves. This may sound easy, but when you are dependent for several years, actually getting up and doing someone else’s job can be unbearable. We must lose our dependence and become independent because we are the ones who control who we become and what we do.
The goal of an advertisement is always to promote a brand or product, but the mistake most advertisements make is that there is no humor involved. The advertisement just says, “Buy my product. It does this, this, and this. You’ll love it.” This method of selling something rarely works because most viewers will realize that the advertiser just wants your money.
Here is an example of what I believe is a humorous advertisement that would get a lot of sales. If the product doesn’t get a lot of sales, there are still a lot of people viewing the video on YouTube which could result in revenue.
A advertisement that is funny and gets a lot of attention will always do well.
