Week 3 of The Quick Start Challenge

aweberlogoFor this week’s challenge, we have to put an opt-in form on our blog.  I’ll be using AWeber for my autoresponder.  Had to check out a video or two on Youtube and AWeber to remember how to get the opt-in form on my blog sidebar.  I’ve also been working on my other coaching program with Marc Milburn and we are working on squeeze pages too, so that has worked out really well.

Well if you are reading this right after I’ve posted this, you’ll see I have no opt-in form.  The reason I don’t have an opt-in form yet, or at least didn’t at the time of writing this post is because I’m waiting on my outsourcer to finish my “free gift”…what I’m giving away if people optin to my list.  My “free gift” is a little complicated to create and I asked the outsourcer to do my job quicker then the timeframe he gave so I’m waiting….and hoping…and praying he gets it to me today so I can make my challenge deadline.

If he doesn’t make it in time for the challenge deadline, at least I know within the next two days or so, I’ll not only have an opt-in on my blog, but I will also have a separate squeeze page and funnel that will also be done.  Super excited about that! 🙂

Keep your fingers crossed that I’ll have a “free gift” in my hands in the next couple of hours…

Sidenote:  The one item I am not doing very good at right now, is driving traffic to my blog.  I need to do more blog commenting and forum commenting.  Need to get more focused on traffic.

Quick Start Challenge Week 2 Update

This is my update on the Quick Start Challenge for week 2.  It’s been super busy for me, but I did complete my challenge.  Although I could have been more aggressive in my traffic generation.  Two down and two to go.

Tip: Turn your phone sideways when recording to get a full screen video instead of what you see above. I need to take my own advice…

I have started on a new challenge in my business.  You know I’m already working with a coach and the roadmap he has laid out for me can be challenging enough, but I’ve also decided to join Dean Holland’s program… The Quick Start Challenge.  Dean is working with two partners on this program Craig Crawford and JF Garsula.  Learn what I discovered about this Challenge in the video below:

Pretty cool, right? Well, I’ll keep you posted on how things are going each week. Let me know what you think about this crazy adventure I’ve gotten myself into by commenting below. Read the rest of this entry
