So…Hi! I recently decided to start documenting my journey at becoming an online entrepreneur. I’ve been unenployed since October 2016 but not exactly chilling.. i have been working with my wife on her artist website http://www.rita-silva.com and i’m also with a business partner on our booking agency at http://www.sunadamusic.com .
I’ve always loved computer, games and web dev. and now i have a strong background in sales. I’m not an avid book reader although i enjoy business/marketing books. So far i’ve read these:
The top three are about branding and marketing your business/brand, the 4th one is like a business anatomy. The most important of all is the last book that teaches you how to effectively comunicate with people and how to influence them.
I’ve been reading a lot about the affiliate marketing…i heard about it in the past… and for what it seems it kind of blends all of the things i like together. So i decided to give it a go and searched for unexpensive ways to generate traffic and sales, well the usual reasons. Some people where saying that Quora and Pinterest are good options to do that. “Is it free? Let’s try it!”. So far i’ve been doing this affiliate marketing for close to 2 weeks working on both platforms and my stats indicate that Quora generates less traffic but has better conversion and Pinterest directs traffic but no sales yet. Actually the numbers i generated in 2 weeks are hilariously bad but i just wanted to point out that maybe it can work. Also note that Quora doesn’t really allow affiliate links so do not use more than 1-2 links per answer or else they will ban it. Now i know that lol :p .
For next year i will try to put up a blog post every Saturday talking about what happened the week before and what are my goals to next week.
Before the end of the year i’m hoping to finish merging all my wife’s social media and put up a newsletter signup pop her site…. more on that nex year!! Happy new year guys
