Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge – Week One
The Live Webinar
The week one’s webinar from Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge was scheduled, as you probably know from my previous post on my birthday, at exactly 0:00.
Actually the webinar was on a few minutes earlier, and that gave me a good impression.
I attended a few webinars in my life, and I must say that the biggest downside of them is the following: in my opinion the hosts make them longer, by talking nonsense and trying to be funny, engaging, making jokes or any other thing that the webinar is not about… I remember an internet marketing webinar with a lady holding a glass of beer and drinking from that glass for almost an hour – what I actually don’t remember is what she was talking about, I’m sure at some point she reveled a “guru’s well kept secret” – but all I remember is that glass of beer and me thinking “live beer drinking is the new cool thing in internet marketing?!”
What I wanted to point out is: the length of the webinar is not a criteria for the real value of it – in my opinion. If you have a great thing to share and you manage to share it in 3 minutes, that’s ok with me, I got your message and you didn’t wasted my time – that shows respect for me.
Ok, now back to Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge Week One webinar – nothing to complain about this one – had a good intro, talking about where and how Dean started. Motivational.
He talked about how is he doing now (among others has a great BMW – love it) – got my greedy attention.
He talked about Time Management – this is where I need to improve myself.
He talked about being yourself and being honest – one of the first people in IM i hear with this approach.
He didn’t wasted time with off-topic or too general questions. He said the epic “Google It” – thumb up for that!
He assigned a task, just like this – “Create a blog and publish at least a post. If you have time create an about me page”.
This post is one of those personal diary entries for me too, I will state here where I start with Internet Marketing and what is my first goal:
- Where I start: good knowledge in webdesign, web development, keyword research and onpage optimization.
- What I want: my first $100 day from IM.
I hope, with the help of Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge to be able to accomplish that.
And I kept the best for last – best quote from the webinar, that I wrote down on a PostIt and stick it on my desk, to stop procrastinating because of my crazy perfectionism:
