First two weeks. Advertising on craigslist Akron, for classes and lessons.

Basic funky little posts (for now), not much to them. But, some results already.

My lessons for lessons in Copywriting has been up three weeks.


There have been a few interested and TWO wondering if I was for hire. I replied it would depend on the assignment. More eyeballs than I thought, too many don't know what copywriting is.

Internet Marketing Lessons. Got a few quick responses for this one, although very few knew what Internet Marketing meant.


Fastest response for how to set up a blog or forum. Same day responses, and two actual prospects.


plus a few new visitors to the forum.

OK. Next month I'm going to create better promotions and expand into Cleveland and Canton, maybe Youngstown. And add some "contractors", like the guy offering to teach you Wordpress (he gets 200 bux for 2 hours).

Also, I found talking to people on the phone, who really don't have a clue about the Internet to be refreshing, more open minded to ideas and more willing to try new things. Although, when I ask, What do you want?

I still get a lot of "not sure", "don't really know"...so probably be adding a FREE SQ1 workshop to the mix.

It will be interesting to see what these promotions look like in 90 days.

Already looking for an "office". although may start with a co-op place.
