Saturday night fever!


It’s a little after 8pm and I’m going to try and keep my thoughts about work relatively short.  I feel like I’m just constantly ranting and raving, bitching and complaining about work and who the fuck wants to hear that?  Then again, it’s my damn blog so I can do whatever I want.  If you don’t like it, tough shit.

The email campaign is fucked, but I knew it was going to need to tweaking and there is not much I can do or say about it until Monday when I talk to my rep.  It’s sending emails to states it shouldn’t be, the click-thru ratio is trash; it needs a lot of work.

I’ve been spending a lot of time getting my Google adwords account up and running and was able to build a nice list of about 60 long tail keywords for my ads.  The original issue was finding keywords that were cheap enough for me to afford, and I was able to do that because I’m not paying more than 40 cents a click.  Now it’s just a matter of impressions, click-thru’s and conversions.  I won’t know more until it’s been up and running for a few days, but my daily cap is set at like 10 bucks so if something crazy happens I won’t be out on my ass.  I also have about 8 different ads on rotation so I can see which works best.

This morning I had a good workout and I’ve been parked in front of my computer since trying to figure this shit out.  I’m driving myself crazy trying to get some fucking results and I can’t decide if I should smoke a joint to calm down or if that would make things even worse.  I don’t smoke weed a lot but when I do I have a tendency to think and dwell on shit.  I’ll tell you what though; the medical marijuana movement in California is some pretty cool shit!  I don’t care if you smoke pot or not, how can you look at a nug like this without smiling.

I could get drunk, but again – being as though I’m stressed and thinking about work all the time, getting drunk is probably a bad idea.  It’ll just make shit worse.  I can’t wait until I don’t have to stress about shit like this and I can just drink some scotch or smoke a bowl and enjoy myself.

Inside of me there is a battle being fought by the pessimistic me and the optimistic me.  The pessimistic me says that it’s over and I need to take my losses and move on.  The optimistic me, not only SAYS but TRULY BELIEVES that my marketing efforts are going to pay off and quite literally save my company.  To be honest the optimistic voice inside of me is much louder than the pessimistic voice and that is not normally the case.  For whatever reason I feel as though if I just keep plugging away and grinding, the leads will start to flow and once they do I can breathe a sigh of relief.  Maybe I’ll generate a lead here or there, then a couple a week, then a couple a day, and before I know it I’m back in business.

I just hope my marketing efforts yield the results I need before it’s too late.

Fuck it, maybe I will smoke that joint after all…
