My Todo List For January 2007

Written by George Manty  · January 16, 2007

After getting back from vacation, I decided to make a quick summary of some of the things I want to do in January for my online business. In no particular order here is my todo list for January 2007:

1. Hire a Traffic Assistant
Austin mentioned this site called to me the other day. I am looking for ways to outsource some of my tasks and this looks like it could be a very cost effective method of bringing in more traffic to my websites. This should free up some time to do other tasks. I do love getting traffic to my sites, so I will still do some work on it myself. It’s just that after I hire a traffic assistant, I won’t be doing as much of it myself. I will let you know how it works out.

2. Get Active on
I joined it a month ago, but haven’t done anything with mybloglog yet. Now that Yahoo has bought it, I should definitely get started making use of it.

3. Do my Taxes
Any volunteers to do my taxes for free?

I am not a big of fan working on my taxes, but it’s something I have to do.

4. Promote our American Idol Blog and Homeschooling Wiki
Our American Idol blog is a pretty decent money maker during the season. Jill will be writing on it a lot. It is one of my favorite blogs, because I am big fan of American Idol and because Jill does the writing.

On the other hand, our homeschooling wiki is the site I want to focus the most on for the first quarter of 2007.

5. Work/mentor/network with Austin of Trust My Mechanic

Austin and I are working on a quick project that takes precedence over all my other work. I figure Austin is making his living online and if he has an idea that might help me get there faster I should try it. I am learning a lot from Austin, and I hope to continue building a friendship with him (as he is a very nice person).

6. Keep up with my Blogs

Keeping up with my blogs can be a lot of work.

7. Make a Solid Business Plan
Goes without saying that this is important.

8. Write my Next Newsletters

I put out a newsletter for an ebook I wrote about website traffic. It wasn’t exaxctly as successful as I had hoped at the time. I would do things WAY differently now than I did at the time I created that ebook. However, it was a great learning experience.

Anyway, I write a free monthly internet marketing newsletter, where I talk about some things that I don’t cover on this blog. This month, I plan on writing about a Search Engine Optimization technique that I use and see ton’s of other top ranking websites use to get higher rankings from the Search Engines.

9. Sort through the JV offers I got while I was on Vacation
I recieved about 4 Joint Venture offers while I was on vacation and I need to determine which ones look the best. They are all Internet Marketing related.

10. Pray
Yes, you read that right. I have to pray about my business. When I don’t pray about my business it seems to just putter along, when I do pray about it doors open up. At least that has been my experience so far.

I have a lot of work left for the rest of this month. The first part of this month was consumed by a vacation, but the vacation reinforced some things that I learned towards the end of 2006 (in particular this and this).

    TRAFFIC ASSISTANTS ( run by Harris Fellman, Richard East and Nick Dunnin is a FRAUD. They have not performed the hours due that are prepaid for most (maybe all) of the clientele. Those of us who have demanded a refund are ignored. Those who got billed for month 2 are getting the same crappy service as before. I don’t think it was intentional, but now that they ignore all emails, and have so many dissatisfied customers, yet they announce a new promotion March 1, as far as I’m concerned it now qualifies as a fraud. read about them on warriorforum (unless the post gets deleted). Advice: choose someone from rentacoder rated 9.5+ with at least 20 jobs and write VERY DETAILED AND CLEAR job description for them. Don’t assume anything. Do small jobs with short deadlines. It’s working for me now, but I lost thousands on crap work my first few months at it. Good luck to y’all. successguru7 at gmail com if u have questions.

    TRAFFIC ASSISTANTS ( is a total scam. posted our Press Releases on sites that had nothing to do with our business. We lost money on hiring them becuase they don’t target you well and you dont get qualified leads. If you call them they will say anything to get you off the phone and never help you. Never ever use For $400 you will get much better and a legal response from Google or other well established traffic generators. is a shell company in India looking to ripp people off.

    I am just try to help others avoid the problems we had with BUYER BEWARE!

    Yes, I do believe that there were a few issues with the program early, you are right, however I worked with my account manager there, and am now starting to see some very nice rankings with the work they have done. So yes, there were some times that I could see some issues, but I am in business and after speaking to the team there I could see the opportunity and they are now running all the tactics with clear processes and I can see the results.
    So right now, I don’t have a problem in recommending this program, as I have tried for years to get work done overseas, and how basically I give my url and linking and trafifc is coming, I just update the content, so I am happy with how it is going, and well done the team at

    As I read the above posts, I just have to sit back and ask myself why there are people out on the planet that truly have nothing better to do in life than to spew garbage. My name is Richard East and I am directly involved in the TA program here in India. A shell company…hardly…scam…not a chance.

    Listen, we have 200 customers…”most” of whom are completely satisfied…others who are not. To resolve a problem on a forum or blog is not only suspect to the posters motives, but a clear indicator that someone has pure motive to do something unbecoming of most human beings.

    We have over 5 contact points…with the US Account Managers (5 of them), Nick Dunin, the Inidan Account Manager and myself. Everyone in the program has all of the email addresses, phone numbers and chat ids. So, if anyone truly did have a real problem, it would be solved immediately.

    Good luck to you folks that enjoy spending your time on forums and blogs doing what you feel is damage. It is nothing more than a waste of your time. And if you truly do have a real complaint, you have all the necessary contact information to resolve this. FYI, when people complain…you would think that they would use their real names…those above are not and have never been clients of the TA program. Perhaps they were clients and just too embarrassed to put their real name as this would be an improper method to solve any problem…by anyones standards.

    The good news is that a majority of people don’t read the comments of blogs. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation about a lot of products and servicess. I may still buy a traffic assistant in the future, it depends on my future needs.
