It has been a busy week since a4uexpo, I managed to get my workload ahead of schedule before the event and a good job too as since getting back with my head buzzing with new ideas I have hardly had time to catch my breath.
So what have I done, well obviously my established sites take precedence so have been publishing lots of content for them, thanks for everyone who sends me articles it saves so much time and gets you more exposure too.
Some of the other things I’ve been up to come as a direct result of being at the a4uexpo here are a few of them.
One of the first things that Joost de Valk said in his presentation on wordpress SEO was that an RSS button cannot be big enough, so I am putting that to the test.
Also on various blogs I am implementing some of the wordpress plugins that Joost suggested.
Next up decided it prudent to test the Sunpress plugin that Sunshine have developed so have put it on an old European Holiday site of mine many thanks to James Zielinski for his hard work getting the search function running for me.
Also I am planning yet another new site specifically working with another merchant whose affiliate manager I had a good chat with at the expo, seems I have been an affiliate of theirs for a while, in all honesty I had not even put up a link, so I have redressed that situation and the sales have started coming, this would never have happened if this particular affiliate manager hadn’t been at a4uexpo.
Now I am working through my notes that I made at the expo lots of things still to do, some of the notes seem a bit disjointed but happily Matt Wood and the Existem events team have made most of the a4uexpo Presentations Now Available on SlideShare, which serves as a refresher, and has given me chance to check out some of the things I missed.
Now as if that isn’t enough to be going on with Ben Jesson and Dr Karl Blanks of Conversion Rates Experts, regular readers will know Iam a real fan of their work, have published a fabulous article on their blog 14 free tools that reveal why people abandon your website, so that has given me a stack of other things to do.
So over to you, What have you done since a4uexpo?
