“I am Back!”T-850 (Terminator – Rise of the Machines)
Remember that famous dialogue from “Terminator 3 – Rise of the Machines”?
It’s that one dialogue that has become synonymous with Arnold Schwarzenegger, now. In fact nobody does it better than he does. And when he says it, you can see the joy and conviction in that statement.
It is clear that he means business and no nonsense business. And that he is back to beat the heck out of all his enemies.
I am no Arnold Schwarzenegger. And I do not have any enemies that I want to beat the “heck out of”.
But, I mean business and no-nonsense business. So “I am Back“.
Buy Why a Comeback, You Ask?
If you have been a regular reader of my blog here, then you would have realized the reduced frequency of posts on the blog for almost the last complete year.
And when I am talking about readership, it is important that I also mention the fact that I lost quite a lot of readers in the past year or, so just because of the irregular publishing pattern.
Sad, Isn’t it?
My podcast had also gone into hibernation since almost the last year and a half. And that too was a deliberate decision albeit at the wrong time.
Just when the listens had gone up, I withdrew and today I find that the listens are almost negligible.
But why did I do all this?
You know, one of the best things about internet marketing is that when you strike gold, you just go on and things fall into place one after the other. But at the same time, if you fail then there is a high possibility that things take a downward spiral, unless you know how to control it.
While the fear of such failures can deter you from trying new things, the experience and the learnings that you get from such failures are immense and can help you for your future.
There were quite a few experiments that I tried in the last 18 months or, so which included launching a new course, attempting selling on Amazon, book writing, public speaking etc.
Some of these were utter failures like trying to sell on Amazon, some were partial success like the product launch and some others were a success like public speaking.
There are yet others that are work-in-progress like my book writing venture.
Failure or, success, there was something that I learnt from each of the experiments. And since these weren’t small experiments, these learnings will play a considerable part in my future endeavor.
Remember the tagline that Pat Flynn used on his blog, smartpassiveincome.com
I am Your Crash Test Dummy. Let’s See What Works!Pat Flynn
Every experiment in Internet Marketing is a “Crash Test”. And if somebody hasn’t done it already, then you need to do it on your own.
What I learnt from my experiments are pure gold that I will retain for my future experiments. And I am sure it will make me a better marketer.
What You can Expect from the DKSpeaks Podcast in its new Avatar?
When I started the DKSpeaks podcast, I was already listening to a lot of podcasts. In fact, there were a few that I was regularly following and really enjoyed listening to.
But one thing that I found was that I wasn’t getting actionable advice from anyone in any of the podcasts. There was a lot of “GYAAN” that was given away but nothing concrete in terms of what are the steps that I need to follow.
And it was hence that, I introduced the DKSpeaks podcast as one where I will give away “actionable and implementable internet marketing tips”.
I wouldn’t be deviating from this core principle and would continue to give away information that you can use in building an online business.
But, in addition to this I am planning at introducing a segment where I would bring in guests primarily from the internet marketing niche and hear from them what are the concrete tips that they would like to give out to new internet marketing aspirants.
I would also be introducing more of an interactive communication with my listeners.
I would like to bring in YOU into my shows. If you are an aspiring internet marketer who has questions and wants help in building your business, I would like to bring in you into the show. You can ask me questions and I will answer you.
You will also get an opportunity to put across these questions to the guests on the show.
This way we will be able to build a more interactive community and have an more interactive podcast.
I will also be introducing a series-styled playlist of episodes which will be focussed on a single topic, but broken into simpler and absorbable episodes.
So what you do think about these changes?
Will this be informative to you? What else would you like to see in the revived DKSpeaks Podcast?
