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…

More Turns Then A Rollercoaster…

So What’s My Story?

Well, my story isn’t a rags to riches one, but it does have a few twists and turns along the way.  I live in Indiana, just outside of Chicago, with my husband, two kids and our two dogs.  I enjoy sports which my kids are very active in, am a photographer wanna be, love traveling and love being outside (prefer my toes in warm beach sand vs being frozen off in snow).

I started in internet marketing about 2006.  Before that I worked as middle management for a technology company.  I had quit my job to spend more time with my two young kids.  It was supposed to be for a couple of months.  Unfortunately between, a downturn in the economy and the events of 9/11, I was unable to find a job.  So I began rehabbing rental properties with my sister.  We did that for about 3 years.   When the recession hit, our business collapsed.
