A while back Brett had a great no-nonsense internet marketing presentation on the site, at this URL:
However, it no longer seems present.
It was a great reference point, along with the theme pyramids, which is still up at searchengineworld.
Is there a new location for the presentation, or has it been removed entirely?
I'm no rookie, and I don't think 15K per day from Google alone is possible today, well not 15K net profit anyways!
The world changes, Brett's post was good at the time, today, and especially in 2005 it is not realistic.'
Brett, you need to update the realities, sure there are still large amounts of money to be made, but, it is getting harder!
The SE's are sucking away our profit......they are our best friends and worse enemy's at the same time!
If you build a good site with an average of 4 to 5 pages per user, you should be in the 10-15k page views per day range in one years time.
Something I don't see there, that really stuck out on the separate presentation, was the focus on kids as a source of referals.
I'd check the internet archiver for a copy, but the IA bots are excluded in the robots text.
I remember everything Brett's ever said. ;)
It wasn't focused on that, but that was part of it. It was about kids getting "viral" when they get really excited about something. It has to be something they're personally interested in and identify with, from their own point of view.
I bet thats true.
Sites with lots of great content would get less click thru then fluffy ones cause they have something that keeps the visitor.
<Brett, you need to update the realities>
Another vote for that.
but if you give people what they want (information) they won't do what you need (click & go away)
but remember: if you create good content, other people will link to you... that means increased SERP ranking, higher traffic...
where is the balance?
somewhere between vacuous babbling and a boring lecture.
