I’ve just joined in the comments on Pete Cashmore’s (aka @mashable ) site about Twitter Quitters – people who give up Twitter so soon after joining; here’s my comment to Simon:

simonth:Twitter is about sharing news. If you have no news to share or to find, you will find Twitter uninteresting. Unlike Myspace and Facebook, these has multiple features to cater to wide range of users.

me: Very well articulated Simon – I see Twitter very much as information/news-sharing service much more than a friendship platform & am happy with it being used in that manner on me as well as me interacting with others in that way.

simonth:Though the recent mass adoption of Twitter is encouraging, I will prefer to have a >quality group of users instead of high quantity of users. This news of high percentage >of quitters is good news.

me: Fair enough – but if you want to get a sense of what a large number of people are up to, or you want to reach a large number of people, Twitter is *way* easier to do that with than Facebook/MySpace etc, as it’s so *quick*…so I’m after volume on Twitter as much as possible & not so bothered with that on Facebook. After all, the number of things you can “do” on Facebook is massive, extending the depth of communication many many times, but the simplicity of Twitter is the most appealing thing for me.

Also, someone else on mashable’s blog mentioned how there might be a tendency of twitter users to start rather slowly – that’s certainly the case for me..I didn’t really get going with Twitter until November 2008…I know I’ve reached the point of no return now, as I see myself providing & gaining value from the service in so many ways.

As of 24 February 2009, Google has refined it’s policy regarding domain names within a single Adgroup. This will mean for example, that the following are OK:

  • adwords.google.com
  • www.google.com

But the following domains in the same Adgroup don’t comply with the  new policy:

  • www.google.com
  • www.google.info

So, if you (like I’ve been doing!) split-test your Ads with different domains to see how this affects your CTR (Click-Through-Rate), you’ll have to think of an alternative method. Probably the easiest thing to do would be to (as Google recommends), create different AdGroups with the different Top-level Domain, but using the same keywords & match-types.

I guess this is going to be a hassle for some, but if you’re using something like SpeedPPC, you should be able to make the adjustment very rapidly.  I’ve only been using the software for a couple of weeks in the PPC campaigns I’m cranking out, but it makes a massive difference to how quickly you can get a test campaign up & running, no matter what Google decides to throw at us!  I’ll be reviewing SpeedPPC in due course, but just to say for now – it’s well worth the investment in terms of the time it saves & the efficiency with which you can create targeted campaigns, and that’s just scratching the surface of what it can do for your PPC marketing.

Getting the Rocket off the Ground

Getting the Rocket off the Ground

Sometimes, getting started in something new can seem like a very frustrating experience: you spend a lot of time and energy building the foundations of your business/career/whatever, and yet there doesn’t seem much to show for your efforts. Whilst there are possible quick ways to build, they often involve an initial upfront financial outlay that is beyond people’s cashflow, and there’s no guarantee that you’ll have the technical skills needed to make such high octane methods actually work.

I’m not saying that it’s not possible – you just need to be careful that you don’t try & get the rocket off the ground before it’s ready. If you think of all the preparation that goes into a typical rocket launch – the number of people involved, the careful preparation, the seeming endless checking & re-checking, maybe it’ll help you from letting impatience get the better of the sober judgment that can be all too easily thrown out of the window for the sake of some possible shortcut.

Most of the fatal historical space missions were, after all, much to do with people trying to take shortcuts. So don’t you fall into the same trap when considering amazing opportunities.

Don’t skip on the preparation. It may seem slow, and sometimes it’s hard to maintain your focus when you don’t see the outcome of your efforts soon, but remember that the most amazing things take the longest to build. Or get to the launch phase, ready for take-off.

Lastly, (as I’m a physicist by training!) – don’t forget that the rocket has the most mass at launch…it only starts really accelerating once quite a bit of the fuel has been used…then things start to change at an amazng pace 🙂

For most of us, there has never been a more challenging time to be entering into. With financial institutions crumbling around us on an almost daily basis, and many of us wondering how we’re going to cope or adapt to such uncertainty, it’s tempting to do either one of two things: bury our heads in the sand or worry our way into oblivian.

Obviously neither approach will work.

So what is the alternative?

Rober Kiyosaki recently gave his thoughts on the whole matter: whatever your background, professional experience or current job, you should seriously consider what he considers to be the only viable, long-term successful business model that will not only survive such rocky times, but will actually thrive in them: network marketing.

He belives that this is actually a time more serious than just a recession: a global depression is on its way, and we’re all going to have to face some very stark choices. I know what I’m going to do. How about you?
