What a world we live in.. and what a great deal a man (or woman) can learn in a month away from the blog-sphere.. Deals announced, partnerships strategized and all roads lead to the ability to reach our fellow-man. I’ve been traveling for family issues (nothing serious folks) over the past month – I’ve been home and away from home. It will be great to reflect on the industry and vent some thoughts about the way things are .. and the way they might go in the coming few weeks (go easy on me.. I’m traveling here).
Some thoughts for you to consider.. This blog has been inactive for 30 days and has somehow managed to add 400 subscribers since I took a posting sebatical. In that time it attracted 1200+ spam posts.. It’s all about the eyeballs folks.
In a world where people still operate 800/900 numbers to capture users “phoning in” common numbers (Good work folks) – In a world where new billboards are appearing on the LA skyline month to month – In a world where those Sunset Blvd billboards generate more revenue than the buildings they are emblazoned on; what are your unique domain-name visitors worth? The battle to reach (and win) the hearts/minds of our fellow man has been raging since Gutenberg invented the printing press. How much greater is a medium’s value when that ability to connect can be quantified and judged against its peer group? Is a unique visitor the same as a phone-in, a qualified lead or paid introduction?
Stay tuned folks. You live in exciting times.
