I have been pretty excited since the weekend when I started my first ever online advertising campaign. It sounds impressive, but really it isn't quite a campaign. I don't even know if it would qualify for an outing. In reality, it is a 125 x 125 pixel button that I made for free and designed myself. You can see it here at Sarge's blog. It is advertising this blog! I even made the red printing flash to draw attention to the button. You can clearly see that I am not a professional internet marketer and am instead just an everyday joe trying to fumble my way through the internet.
I had been thinking of advertising on another blog to try to promote this blog. I even had the button all ready to go and saved on my computer. I figured that as long as I didn't spend any more money than I made on this blog, it would be OK. Unfortunately, I thought I would have to wait until next year. But this was such a good deal, I couldn't pass it up. It is still too early to tell whether the advertising is working. The button will be there for a month so I will watch traffic and referral patterns to see what happens. I will be sure to report the results in a future post.
In the meantime, I would just like to say that this month has been pretty decent so far. I had a busy day today and haven't gotten much done online. Maybe I can get some more done this evening. Over the next few posts, I will update some of my current online income activities in much more detail. Hopefully, they will be inspiring and instructive. This post is somewhat short since I mainly wanted to share my lack of marketing skill. Nevertheless, enjoy my red flashing font. I think it's cool!
