If you have visited my blog before, you may notice that my blog is not updated frequently sometimes. I went to look at my statistic today and I realized that my hits rate dropped a big time compare to the month that I have several new posts. It looks like the more I post, it will attack more people to come to read my blog.
I didn’t have time to update the blog because I didn’t have time to find something interesting to write about. I was hoping to do some more lab works and write something about those labs, but end up I am too tired to do so after a long day work.
It is good to see my blog still getting visitors, I should really get some time to update my blog more frequent to give more information out about Networking, IT or Photography.
I wrote an blog entry about the Google Adsense was working for me. Someone left me a comment and want me to talk about how I made it work…
I didn’t have an intention to make money via Google Adsense. I applied a Google Adsense account purely for testing purposes to see how many visitor I have and if anyone interested in the advertisement…..
My Adsense started generating money after I posted about the battery problem I have on the Apple’s new OS Lion. Supprisingly, there were a lot of people in the same boat as me having the same problem and searching for solutions on the internet….
And my blog entry was searched by the web search engine and matching the terms people search. All of a sudden, that post draw thoursands of visitors to my site. And the google adsense counter just keep on counting and seeing incoming from Google Adsense.
I guess if you want to make money from Adsense, you have to have quality contents which can drive visitors to your site and the more visitors you have, the more chance of getting more money from Adsense.
I am happy that my blog is generating a few dollars per month.
The deals web sites ripped off the business owners. This doesn’t really cause any damage to your business. The real damage to your business is the reputation.
Why? A service or a product was normally selling at $40, but now a customer and use $20 to buy it. Let’s think this from a customer’s prospective…… This is a ripped off, it is now selling at $20 and I believe the company is still profitable but this was selling that at $40. Customer will not come to buy that service/product for the original price again.
This may not cause major impact to businesses that sell products, but it definitely cause damage to businesses that sell service.
People who bought the deal will go to your shop to get the service that they paid for (at a 50% discount price). Will they come again? As far as what I have got told from my friends.. NOPE. Those customers who bought deals will not come back again.
Most of the people who bought deals from those deals web site are “DEAL Hunters”. They hunt for cheap deals and get cheap service. When your service is not selling at discount price, they will not come.
So if your intention is to draw more customers from those daily deals web site, don’t bother to try them. As you will not get any promotion effect out of it. To run a business, you want return customers, you don’t want someone just come once because your price is cheap and never come again.
As a conclusion, daily deals will not help your business, but make you to do something for nothing, sometimes, you even spend money for nothing. You may consider a proper advertisement to advertise your business instead of running deals.
I haven’t been updating my blog for over a months now. I am too busy with personal stuff and a lot of planning and training. There is no time for me to do anything. I haven’t been taking photos for over a month now.
