I figured I will post light this Saturday and offer a big piece of advice that has saved me along the Internet marketing journey. USE YOUR BOOKMARKS!!
Weather you are using Internet Explorer or Firefox both browsers give you the greatest invention since ice cream…Bookmarks!
I will tell you that you should always keep very organized bookmarks for the simple reason that IT WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE!
The reason is that there is tons of information that you are and will be coming across as you work, from helpful blog posts, guides, tools, resources, etc…, the possibilities are endless, and if you don’t keep organized bookmarks as you go, you will be scrambling and pulling your hair out when you want to go back and find something.
It really does give a lot of peace of mind to know that the stuff is there and well organized, especially with all we have on our plates in this biz and because I am sure that most of us do not have personal assistants
The browsers really make it so easy to bookmark with drag and drop capability that there is no excuse not to. Some of you may be just clicking bookmark for everything, but, the problem is that you then just have a long list, without any order, this leaves you having to look through a possibly massive list…ugh!
What I do is I have folders in my bookmark tab that are titled for specific subjects and then I just drop relates links into those folders
Just a few that I have are:
- Active Affiliate Programs (for easy check of $$$$ :-))
- Site Launch Submissions (list all tasks/submits for a new launch)
- Add URL
- Products Maybe to Promote
- Content Research (folder for each of my sites)
- Word Press Stuff – Plug-Ins
- Website Promotion/Traffic Sources
- Tools and Checkers
- Must Reads
and many more…
How and what you organize is totally a personal thing, but just make sure that you do, because believe me when you are working and very busy, you will come across things you want to save for later, and resources you currently use and you will want to have these things easily categorized and accessible, IT WILL SAVE YOUR SANITY!!
By the way, I just added 1GB of memory to my PC and WOW, $25 on Amazon for the module, did it myself took 5 minutes, I feel like I was released after serving 10 years in a tiny cell, my PC is flyiiiing without ANY limits. If you have low memory I highly recommend it!!
What do you guys think? Do you keep bookmarks? Any tips for staying organized?
