Whilst I thoroughly enjoy being an internet marketer I have to admit that my morale takes a bit of a dip during August. Why? Because in the UK it seems that everybody is off on holiday, therefore sales take a bit a dip.
You can use the quiet period to start gearing up for the Christmas rush by developing a few new landing pages. Or, as I’ve been doing, you can use the time to try out a few new merchants and programmes.
I’ve been dabbling in a few areas and have managed to sell amongst other things some tights via tightsplease, some CDs and DVDs originating from the island of Jersey (currently no VAT), some specialist books, a few insurance policies and bunches of flowers.
I’ve also been doing some very in-progress work on one of my old sites – so if you fancy two fat ladies later tonight it (ooh matron) sounds like you need to play bingo. Online gaming is a very, very, competitive market place, so it’ll be a test for my PPC tuned brain cells (there aren’t too many!), and then some, I suspect.
And roll-on September.
