I told my husband that with a combination of One Week Marketing (which I believe in) and PLR package WSO's, I could make up the difference between his unemployment payments and what he was taking home, and by August I would be able to keep us afloat.
See, I know this about myself. I need a deadline. I need to be backed up against a wall to really get 100% performance. I thought this would be the way to take the plunge from reading to doing.
I need advice about how to get the most out of my article marketing efforts. One Week Marketing helps me get squidoo lenses up, and pick keywords (I have Micro Niche Finder). So I have that much knowledge.
What I was thinking is this:
- Write one original keyword optimized article, get it accepted by EZA
- Create 2 versions of the article, submit each copy to 15 different directories. (Sean Mize said this on a webinar I listened to)
I just need advice. Is the above a good use of my time? Is there another strategy that will work better? I have lots of time, even with my husband working from home. I've been working until 1 or 2 am.
I've been soaking up all the information here about how to write good headlines, articles, resource boxes that get clickthroughs, etc. I beleive I have the skills in that area. I think strategy is my problem now.
Also, to add to the "back against the wall" feeling, I started a blog about my efforts, and then actually publicized it. (see sig. it seemed like such a good idea at the time) We live in a really little town. I don't think I can stay here if I fail completely. I mean, $300 a day by August is a huge goal, I will feel like I've succeeded if I'm making $100 a day by August (and that will almost equal my husband's take-home pay). Way worse than having to move though, is the chance my marriage won't be able to take this. My husband is supporting me now, but I've got to start showing him results.
Replies to this thread will be appreciated more than you realize. Skip the "wow, you are one dumb broad.", though. I seem to have that voice in my head already. I thought it would work. I still think it will work, I just need help with the execution.
