SEO Case Study: Page One, Result One

Today, it’s my honor to introduce you to Kurt Frankenberg, the owner of one of my favorite blogs – ShoeString101.com.

Over the past couple of years, Kurt has made it impossible for me not to love his very hands-on actionable advice he shares on his blog, as well as his tireless tenacity and desire to help.

The fact that he actually implements and gets results from advice I publish at Traffic Generation Café have prompted me to ask him to write this post for you. And, between you and me, the flattery in the post didn’t hurt one bit.

Black Marketing Friday: Best Online Marketing Deals of 2014

I’ll be honest with you – I get no respect for being ‘Ana Hoffman of Traffic Generation Café‘ in the Hoffman household.

So every time I can leverage my name ‘for the greater good’, I am all for it.

Like getting some special marketing deals for Traffic Generation Café readers.

In the past couple of months, I’ve done some door knocking contacting a few product owners I know, asking them if they might be willing to offer you special deals on products I’ve grown to love.

Some said ‘no’ (they had good reasons). Many said yes.

And now that it’s Thanksgiving week in the U.S., it’s time to say Thanks for everything that happened with our business in the past year (or didn’t happen for that matter – all for the best) and set ourselves up for an even more successful year ahead of us.

Disagreement means that you hate kittens.

Don’t hate kittens.

Instead, join me in hating the petty ways people attempt to drive engagement with their campaigns — especially on social media.

Why Traffic Generation Café not making enough money

Why Traffic Generation Café Is Not Making as Much Money as It Should

Your online business is a bridge from your life as you have it to your life as you see it.

In your new life, you might have the time and the money to do EXACTLY what you want when you want it.

You’ll no longer have to read the menu in a restaurant from right to left.

You’ll no longer have to check the price tag before deciding if you have enough room on your credit card to buy something.

Your assets will finally grow beyond pizza coupons.

But that will be then.

For now, you are overwhelmed, underpaid, and just don’t get why your busy-ness in your business hasn’t gotten you any closer to the life you wish you had.

And you are not alone.

Do you ever feel like the world is a movie with you as the main character and everyone else playing supporting roles (your family, friends) or extras (the rest of the world)?
