Procrastination - a case study

by 0 comments
I have studied electronics for several years.

Here in New Zealand it can be a hassle getting components - apart from that its all good.

A year ago - a whole year, I decided I would make 10 EEG machines and sell them.

These things are worth about $1000 each US but I'd still make a killing selling them for half that.

OK so first I got a company in bulgaria to make the PCB's, then I had to source the components from all over the world - which was a pain in the ass.

One supplier in Florida ripped me off and took my money (several hundred) but did not send any product. So I had to do a charge back.

This wasted a lot of time and really pissed me off.

Time passed by, I got engrossed in other things - now a full year later I have all these things sitting on my desk unassembled.

I sure could do with 5-10K right now.

I still need to order a few bits from Australia and USA then I will have all the bits.

Well I need to just pick up my soldering iron...

And its just sitting there...

I'm looking at it...

Really I should.

While I have a range of online marketing skills, I really want to start offering eMarketing services and possibly social media management services plus some general marketing/promotions ... my offering I am not yet 100% certain of right now.

    I know there are a lot of marketers out there that are not using PPC campaigns on their business yet, and I understand why, social media ads is the trend in online advertising right now, everyone go straight to fb and twitter ads, and many even say PPC is not as great as it used to be. Well, I disagree with that statement, I believe PPC is still a very powerful way to promote your website and generate leads, Social Media might be the star right now, but if you want to design a 5 star campaign, you also need to think about PPC, and here are some reasons that support that:
