I get loads of comments on my M & A Rainmaker blog. ( ok lots of them are just link spammers – I know ). I read them all and I value them all ( well except the link spammers that write horrible, incomprehensible, inane things and then expect me to approve them ! ).
It has gone way beyond being a place where I wanted to write down my experiences of starting, building and selling companies. In the main it has become a place where my journey through Internet Marketing has been documented. This was a journey that started in the early 2000′s. It was a journey that was driven by a desire to understand how to get found on the Internet. My firm belief was that people would search for information about nearly everything on the Internet – and then, sometimes, they would actually buy. In other words whatever you sold you needed to have a presence on the Internet and you needed to be found for the services and products that you supplied.
Now there are many blogs posts on this website that are meant to be found for certain ( Google ) searches. For example if you search on
” Internet Marketing Strategy Lichfield ” you will find that a couple of blog posts from here rank at at the top and that further down there is a Pinterest link, a Digg link and then a Twylah link. Yes, some social networks will give you search results aswell !!
But I digress, this post was supposed to be about my blog needing a really good sort out.
Actually I think it is a mother beautiful blog. It was designed for me by Nikki Pilkington and I love the colour and the ” clean lines “. It is uncluttered by, well anything really.
What does it need though ??
Well there are a few things that I plan to add sometime:
1. I need links to all my Social Network pages. ( At the moment these are just on the ” Contact Page ” ).
2. I need you to be able to share all my blogs easily on your Social Network pages.
3. I need to put ” Call to Actions ” on my blog posts e.g. at the bottom of this one.
4. I need an email sign-up section ( but this assumes that I am then going to start emailing my email database ).
5. I am thinking about adding ” Skimlinks ” and have actually signed up for it and been approved.
I could put adverts on my blogsite – not sure if I will but I could.
6. I should have some sort of comment spam filter – at the moment I just approve or not comments.
Actually that’s about all I am thinking about.
( Maybe – mobile friendly ?? )
Yeah , I know I should have some pictures here aswell !!
If you have any thoughts then please let me know
