What? Why would I do that? Of course, I am assuming you are old enough to know what the clap is………check HERE if you don’t LOL.
No, it’s applause I mean. A big, rowdy acclamation that you guys are the BEST!
HUGS FOR EVERYONE
Pop open the champers, drop the net of balloons and streamers.
AT 6a.m. THIS MORNING WE TICKED OVER 1,000 VIEWS FOR THIS BLOG.
There’s a long way to go still. And many more posts to be read (if you have a topic of interest, let me know BTW). And we have launches to plan for: Toldyah website, mobile app, etc. But it’s a start!
Make Me Famous – the Facebook page is up and running…… please join it and pass on to your friends. If you know anyone who uploads videos they can link on this page to help spread the word. Let’s make people famous!
Toldyah – Facebook and Twitter pages are up and running, although on slow burn at the mo.
MEGA – has honed my pitch (more refinements to be made but am loving it right now).
Bizness Babes – has the bones of the business plan sorted – will be in a final draft at the end of today!
Things to do:
Source funding to build website and mobile phone apps
Develop and launch viral campaign
It’s getting closer now – so soon you’ll be able to say “See, I Toldyah”.
Have a BRILLIANT DAY.
If you are a regular reader (yes you Mr X, I found out who you are and a case of champers is on its way, without one person actually reading it does seem a bit pointless to write!), then you’ll know I blogged about some less than happy comments on a fantastic win I had last Friday.
Well, a few more happened over the next few days – and some people put their sleuthing incapabilities to work and realised that 2 + 2 = 6. They found my blog here at Toldyah and started making all sorts of strange assumptions! Conspiracy theories flew ’round Facebook quicker than a US presidential assasination (ok ok – you found me out – I was the sniper on the grassy knoll).
After it got really stupid (having been amusing for the 2 hours before that) I decided I perhaps should explain that Toldyah The Blog, and Tania the apparent professional comper with undies of steel were in fact the same person. My only thought was just to stop the stupidity that was affecting the Appliances Online FB page, but it ended up in a completely unexpected and somewhat hilarious result. Not to mention a HUGE lesson in marketing 101.
I had my 2 biggest ever visitor numbers on the day I posted and the next day – WOW. Now – this blog isn’t well-known (wish it was – if any syndicated media outlet would like to pick it up – I write cheap). In fact, getting 100 readers on a day would make me crack open the bubbly, but hey, 80 people having a gander isn’t bad when I don’t yet have a website ready or the launch up and running.
VERY IMPORTANT LESSON HERE – PUBLICITY IS ALL GOOD, EVEN WHEN ITS BAD.
Dont get me wrong – I am not planning to go get arrested (I’m not as rich or influential as Paris or Ms Lohan). But making a controversial statement can be both fun and rewarding for business……. and THAT is a marketing tool I can use for my launch plan.
So – anyone out there in reader land want to suggest some controversial topics I could bend to my advantage? I am also putting a survey up on this topic for some of my ideas….
And if you have come over from Appliances Online – hello and welcome! Yes – the recipe on the Cook Me page really is mine, but no, my undies aren’t made of steel. They are diamond encrusted tho’
I am baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.
All funned out being a kid. Well, not really, there is always room for more fun!
It was an amazing experience to try to think like a child for a day. Silly thoughts, different viewpoints…….. not censuring my thoughts and actions (within reason – there are human decency requirements!).
It’s actually quite fun and productive to let go of the rules. So many things are possible if you start asking WHY NOT? Suspend reality as we adults know it and start inventing. Research depts should be staffed by kids – so much more would be developed and it would be interesting! A bowl that turns into a lollipop when you wash it – brilliant!
Actually came up with 2 new business ideas during this time – all hush hush of course – I know Mr Gates is secretly spying on me for my brilliant mind, that youngsta Mark Z is just waiting for me to slip up so he can snap up my fabulous ideas, and Richard the Virgin is combing through my trash! Hello rich people – please send a starving entrepreneur money or coupons……….no really – we need help. LOL.
In fact I am beginning to think that is a required part of the program – to be successful you must be desperate. No risk will compare with the burning feeling of hunger perhaps. Lucky it was easter, we are living on easter bunnies and eggs. Still – chocolate does contain all the food groups doesn’t it?
My ideas are becoming more refined now – Toldyah has meat on the bones. Website and app development will start very soon, and launch plans are taking shape. The business plan is in first draft, the rules and webpages are storyboarded. It’s getting exciting.
Will you be one of the first to be able to say….
So who wants to be a star?
Yes yes, I can see Gen Y jumping up and down waving their hands – and even some of Gen X, those happy to flip the bird at their own Gen. and play with the “youngsters” to have some fun (and yup, this includes me *grin*)
Toldyah is under construction, and we want to:
MAKE YAH FAMOUS
So get those video phones out and start practicing your catwalk saunter.
We’ll soon be looking for some talented style magnets to start making the news rather than watching it!
Have a great week,
