That’s One Way to Kill a Morning

 

I’ve been watching random amvs… and league of legends videos for the past few hours.  This corresponds to my theory that waking up early is actually far less product.  Let’s get some blogging done, and then some video recording.  I’m glad I got all my coding out of the way already for this weekend.  Seems like a smart move.  I’ve not a morning person.  even when I wake up early… I don’t really get anything done until after 1pm.  The idea schedule would be 1pm until 4am.  That’s crunch time.

Another Work at Home Day

Working at home days are wonderful.  They are more productive then office days.  And a lot more relaxing…. which makes them more productive.  I got a lot done today.  Mainly, sales.  Sales is interesting… I’m getting better at it.  However, there are a few things I have to work on.  Mainly closing.  I’m not great at closing a sale.  I can talk about myself a lot.. but I don’t have my closing fangs yet.

Halloween was a lot of Fun

 

Halloween this year was super fun.  My lawn care person didn’t come since it was flooding.  I sent my parents to the airport.  It was flooding.  Which is fine… but… I almost got stuck.  The rain was coming down heavy that day.  Went to a party, came back to pass out candy, and went to a second late night party.  Got back really late to film all my youtube videos.  Did an awful job editing them…. oh iMovie…  I’m still a novice.  I need to watch a few youtube videos about managing it.  There’s a lot of features I didn’t know about until recently.

Halo 5 & Productive Weekend?

 

Most weekends playing Halo.. are bad weekends.  productivity wise.  But this weekend I got every thing I needed to get done.  Finishing up the Kanas Royals game.  When I was an intern at a patent/trademark places in Richmond, VA.. .one of our clients was from the Kanas City Royals.  I forget who it was…. I’ve been trying to look it up.  Pretty good game.  Normally I’m not a fan of baseball… but it’s okay since I had the Broncos game to watch to.

A Productive Weekend… I Hope

 

I’m going to set this weekend’s productivity expectations high.  Super high.  Because honestly I need to.  My mom and dad finally go back to Hong Kong.  So dinner on Friday night.  And then send them off to the airport early Saturday.  And then my lawn care person comes to trim the trees and mulch the things…  I seriously don’t know what they are called.  I want to say garden but that’s wrong.  Maybe, landscape.

Artist Should Be Paid Money

 

I read an article by Will Wheaton.  I’m not a Will Wheaton fan… but the article was very good.  In the article he suggested that big media was taking advantage of artist and content producers by using the excuse… do it for the exposure.  He’s right.  As an artist… there is nothing more annoying then when someone doesn’t want to pay you… but wants you to do free work… for exposure…  It’s lame.. and quite frightening how many artist give in….. to irrational demands.  Exposure is okay if you aren’t good at what you are doing.. but once you have some expertise you should warrant both exposure and financial gains.

Managing People is Difficult

 

I manage people.  It is not easy.  End of the blog… No seriously it’s not easy.  There are so many different personality types and everyone has a different incentive.  I’ll just talk about my YouTube.  I run the channel.  And it’s a one person channel.  I’ve worked with many people in the community to creative artwork, playmats, alters, etc etc.  Some of them work out and are still working with me… and some of them are not.  The ones that are not are the ones that I needed to micromanage.  Since, my channel is a hobby, there is no reason I should ever be stressed about something being done… or in most cases not being done.  I trust my artist to make decisions without me have to explicitly express what I want.  The best creative person is one who is allowed to be creative.

Buying Time With Money

 

They say time is the hardest thing to buy… and really it is.  If I could buy more time I would.  Therefore it makes sense for me to figure out how to free up more of my time.  One of the most time consuming things is managing my graphic team… yes.. I’m serious.  I currently pay 4 freelancers to create work for my youtube channel.  It’s difficult to manage them all.  Especially ones which need more mentoring…  It’s sort of stressful.  With this gloomy weather… being on Facebook chat… not the greatest.

This Weekend was Fun

 

Flood aside of course.  I ate Mexican food on Friday… it was so good.  And it’s always nice to get food with the parents.  However, I’m looking forward to not having lunch or dinner as frequently once they go back to Hong Kong.  I haven’t visited Hong Kong.  And my passport will expire soon.  There’s nothing in Hong Kong that I need to go back for.  Hong Kong is nice, but too busy for my taste.  Too many people.  And it’s sort of dirty.. not that it really matters.  And then I spent Saturday with a few friends playing a card game.  Of course I won… when I want to win… I play a different deck than I normally play.

Sometimes I Forget

 

It’s always a surprise to receive legal related things in the mail.  Sometimes I forget that I’m a lawyer… since I don’t practice law anymore.  I miss some parts of being a lawyer a lot.  But marketing is similar… but in my opinion more fun since you can venture out into many fields.  Law is far more specialized and you are pigeoned to a specific area.  Marketing, I had clients who were politicians, doctors, dentist, lawyers, bail bondsman, flower shop owners, auto dealerships… etc.  That makes for a better conversion. READ MORE

Work at Home Day

 

Somehow work at home days… involve me working more… than being at the office.  I guess I save about 1.25 hours from not having to commute… probably more due to finding parking… I would estimate closer to 2 hours.  2 more hours to do work.  Today was pretty productive.  Set up an AdWords account.  I miss doing display and resizing banner ads.  It’s lame.. but relaxing.  Sort of like sorting cards…. but with an actual purpose.  Played with my cat.  And had lunch at a hibachi grill with my mom.  I’d say it was more productive than an ordinary Tuesday at the office.  I should work at home more…

Being Inspired

 

The key is to keep working at the same thing over and over again.  It works.  That’s how you get better.  There are plenty of days I don’t feel like doing something… but I do it anyways.  It really helps when you are with like minded individuals.  And if you are passionate about something.  The passion part plays an important role… but not nearly as important as the work ethic.  Being passionate but not having a strong work ethic means you burn out easy.  And burning out means you give up.  What marketing has taught me is to develop habits. READ MORE

My YouTube Channel Runs Like a Startup

 

The more I think about it… the more my Youtube channel resembles a startup.  It doesn’t have any money.. at least to begin with… and it was an absolute grind to get to the break even point.  It takes a lot more time…. and you make very single mistake you can possibly make until…. to save time you start making mistakes faster.  And you hire lots of random people you have to spend time developing their skill sets so they can eventually help you achieve your goals.  And I assume, for some people YouTube is a startup… if the channel is big enough of course.

Creative Feedback Mechanism

 

One of the most rewarding things about what I do is the creativity component.  It’s nice being able be inventive.  Marketing is an open field.  What worked yesterday may not work today.  And what works today, doesn’t always work tomorrow.  A lot of strategy and execution.  It’s like being in law school again… you never have enough time to write down every important piece of law… therefore you have to figure out what is most important and go from there. Honestly tonight probably need to be a longer night… but I’m not feeling it.

Still a Lot Left to Do

 

Not everyday is productive.  Sundays are normally great.  Today I didn’t accomplish much.  Which is a bummer… since it’s a Sunday.  I’m not sure where all the time when… I guess online… chatting and things like that.  Online chats can take a lot of time and overall very stressful.  And television…  too much television.  I have to finish these blogs and them upload them for the week… and then work… i still have a website I need to fix up.  And a team I need to chat with.   So much to do.  So little time.  Also some plugins to work on.  Oh good.

5 AM on a Saturday Morning?

 

Most weekdays I have difficulty discerning whether its day or night…  Went out to eat dinner with the family.  It was fun.  Talked a bit.  Play with my cat.  And then coded a ton…. I’m proud of what I got done today.  The interesting part… tomorrow and Sunday should be super productive.  I know whether certain days are going to be productive… and tomorrow and Sunday will be fore sure.  Lots of coding left. I want to finish off PHP.  I finished Web Design tonight.  And I did most of the basic PHP training.  I’ll probably go pet shopping tomorrow… but since my mom and dad are home… I don’t really need to run errands.  Huge bonus.

A Weird Sunday

 

Today was pretty weird… as Sunday’s go.  This entire weekend was strange.  I got to work at home Friday which meant a lot of driving around and networking.  Networking can be a lot of fun.  The driving part… not so much.  It’s humbling… Which is a good thing.  Hyper aggressive is not always a good thing.  I got absolutely nothing done today… which I predicted yesterday.  Saturday was fairly productive… not as productive as a typical Sunday… but I got enough done that I don’t feel guilty taking an entire Sunday off to do fun things and hang out with family.  Saturday night was pretty good.

Social Media Intermediate

 

There are many forms of Social Media.  The Basic guide talked about why you should use social media.  The Intermediate guide will teach you how to start on each platform.  Each Social Media platform should be treated as a separate entity that works towards a collective goal.  In this guide, I’ll introduce you to blogging (website), Facebook twitter, Linkedin, and my favorite YouTube.

Social Media Basics

 

I want to expanded my content a bit.  Social Media is something incredibly fun and productive.  It’s easy to measure how well you are doing… in the end it’s simple numbers.  But not the numbers you think are important.  The only number that matters is engagements.  Followers, subscribers, views, likes, etc are not relevant in my opinion as much as engagement.  Engagement takes the forms of comments, reviews, shares, retweets, and link building (when someone refers to your social media in their blog/article).  Conversion rates are dismal on Social Media… for many industries.  However, because your competitors are playing the game, you have to as well.  The lack of social media activity can indicate to a potential client the business doesn’t care about it’s brand.  In theory, if a company doesn’t have the ability to manage their social profiles, do they have the time to manage your business?  And we aren’t just talking about paying someone for social media management.

A Lazy Saturday

 

With the exception of a super productive 3 hour coding session.. this Saturday has been somewhat lackluster in productivity.  Normally that’s okay since Sunday is the day I do most of my work…. but Sunday I’m meeting with a friend, so I won’t have that cushion available to grind out a productive weekend.  Which means I have to create a lot of content tonight.  Some videos, and some articles.  I have a javascript for PPCers, Social Media Introduction, how to freelance as a PPC, and perhaps one more article lined up for this weekend.  As for videos… I have a lot.  I’m glad that I got coding out the way.  That was the most important thing for me to finish this weekend.  Lots still left to do.

30,000 TTH Points

 

I set a goal of 30, 000 points as a 2015 New Years Resolution… it may have been less… but I increased it to that amount afterwards.  In truth, I set a bunch of goals.  Most I’m fairly certain I’ve received.  Others I’m progressing in.  Of all of them the 30, 000 was the most important.  Learning development is essential to furthering my career.  30K is not a bad start.  I’m pretty proud I kept grinding away.  I’m uber excited for the next 30K since it will be ios/android/web design/python.  I intend to take the entire course load which is ambitious but wow… I can already sense the feeling of accomplishment.  Plus… at that point I would be completely full stack in development… pretty insane.

Negative Keywords

 

I wanted to make a few introduction articles about AdWords. Of all the articles Negative Keywords had to be first. One of the most important things is your budget…. especially early on. Here are some negative keywords to think about BEFORE you even start your campaign.

 

Free or Cheap

Being cheap isn’t always a good thing… especially if you are trying to sell something.

Warning: In some industries it’s important to advertise you are free or cheap. Personal injury is often based on contingent, therefore Free Unless you Win is the norm. And blocking out free…. destroys your campaign.READ MORE

A PPC’s Guide to SEO & Content

 

 

*I’ll frequently update.  Last Updated Tuesday October 6th, 2015.

Let’s be honest, PPC and SEO aren’t different.  If you do PPC you do SEO.  If a client wants PPC they want SEO.  Agency offering PPC typically offer SEO.  This study guide is designed for PPC managers interested in learning a bit about SEO.

Why does SEO matter?  Well… customers are searching to buy things everyday. If you organically rank 1 for a search query you receive about 33% of the traffic. That’s a ton of new customers and money for your client.  Or as a branding exercise, it connects your business with keywords.

Fire in the Belly

 

Probably my favorite line.  It’s around 3am right now.  Tonight is a bit different from other nights though since I crunched a 6:30am the previous night before.  Essentially… I got a lot done and I don’t want to go to sleep… since at this point I’m hyper productive.  Lots of coding.  Lots of SEOing.  Very little sales.  The thing with sales is you can’t actually do it on weekends.  Since many of the tactics only work during the weekdays… or so I assume.  READ MORE

Have You Ever Been So Hungry It keeps you Awake?

 

Famished.  I know my current skill set can do great things.  I need to add a few skills… mainly development and sales. I prefer sales over development… but I’m fully aware a ppc developer is something of a unicorn.  Imagine a ppc developer who was great sales… and was also a patent attorney.  That’s an incredible skill set.  And I can speak Mandarin fluently.  And I’m a great teacher.  And good at business… at least auditing them.  My jobs have been so random in the past.  My first job in Houston taught me how to run a business efficiently with low expenses/overhead and high margins.  My second job taught me very little… but it did introduce me to the field of marketing where I learned a lot.

A Saturday Night Crunch

 

This Saturday was awesome.  Mainly because I know next Saturday is going to be incredibly busy with personal stuff.  I got a lot accomplished.  Ran a lot of errands.  Some successful, some not…. And I set it up so I can finish my blogs.  Here!!  and either code/make marketing videos.  I haven’t decided.  My day started at 6am which is incredibly early.  I just woke up from a nap.  I’m all set for a productive night.  Starbucks and Monster drinks ready to go.  I’m predicting I can go until 5am in the morning.  Under that time line I have about 7 hours of sheer productivity.  Nighttime is so efficient for work.  Utter silence.

10 Year High School Reunion

 

I’d love to go.  But unfortunately there’s no reason.  My mom and dad live in Hong Kong.  And my sister lives far away.  The friends I want to see… I’ve already seen and kept in touch with.  It’s crazy how Facebook has changed the entire dynamics of school reunions.  If my mom or dad or sister still lived in the area… I would for sure go to the high school reunion.  And if I hadn’t seen my friends in ages… of course!!  Right now, there’s no reason for me to go visit.  I would however visit NYU or William and Mary Law.  NYU for the locations and friends.  And WM for the friends.  There are so many other locations and friends I’d rather see.  Exton was boring….

Sales Means Ignoring Negativity

 

Sales is 99 percent of people saying no… and not giving up until you find that one person who says yes.  Three years ago, I would have been terrible at sales.  I’m still not very good… but I deal with negativity a lot better.  One of the key traits I learned from doing social media, people can be mean.  However, people who are mean are unlikely to be interested in buying what you are selling anyways.  And that’s how I developed a thick layer of skin.  Negativity is ever present.  Let’s face it, the majority of people are not interested in the product or service you are selling.  There is not one product or service everyone needs… maybe the iPhone… but that’s it.

Sunday is when I Get Stuff Done

 

I’m pretty happy with this Sunday.  I binged on the walking dead (as background noise… I’ve already seen it).  Finished most of my errands.  The study room is still a bit of a mess.  I may clean that after I’m done this blog.  I got 4 articles up.  4 blogs.  All the videos for my lion channel.  And feel really relaxed and happy.  Played with the kitten and got a longer nap in.  Outside of my study room being a complete disaster zone right now, I would say pretty productive weekend.  My fantasy team is also doing amazing.  Yeah… if I can get myself to clean up study room it will be a good weekend.  And maybe do some craigslist content creation on google documents.
