It’s Friday. That usually means the end of another week.
Today, however, was the beginning of some new things. That’s right. I have signed up for two, – yes two – new challenges, both designed to help me build my new business.
Today was the intro session for the new 2011 Cash Now Challenge. This will be a 90 day challenge to teach us many new things about online marketing.
In case you don’t know, it was my association with the first 90 day challenge and my meeting Art, Maria and Tina that have brought me to this point. That’s what this site is all about … my journey through the maze of online marketing.
Last time I joined the challenge about half way through and I always felt like I wasn’t totally getting it all. This time, I registered within minutes of getting the invite.
Today they admitted that maybe they tried to give us too much information in too short of time (I agree with that LOL). In the first challenge they had four modules that they taught us – and although the information was great, there was just no way that I, as a newbie to this, could implement it all in the time frame given. Maybe I’m just too analytical.
So I started journaling about it here – I was just so frustrated with information overload and trying to figure out what was most important and what to do first. I soon realized that I couldn’t do it all, at least for now, so then my question became – what will I specialize or focus on?
It took me a while as I did some research – but I finally figured it out. My niche would be – List Building!
So I started developing my main website. That took a while before I was comfortable enough to release it as I wanted the graphics to do what I wanted them to do and I definitely wanted lots of good content on the site.

Let’s have some fun together while we help each other learn this stuff.
I also realized that List Building has changed in 2011. It’s no longer just about building a list for an email campaign as it was in 1999. Now list building encompasses Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. So since these areas are a bit new to me, I’m researching them and trying some techniques that a long time friend (she taught me what MySpace was all about years ago) suggested.
Today I’m registered for her new 30 day challenged to get 5000 Twitter followers in 30 days. Yikes … a week ago I didn’t really get Twitter, but after “playing” with it this week, it’s starting to make a bit more sense. I’ve noticed that I’m getting traffic to this site as a result of my Twitter posts.
Today, Angela announced that she’s starting a 30 Day Challenge group so I signed up. I have learned to doing things with a live mastermind group is much better than doing it on your own.
