I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
While at Affiliate Summit, one of the sessions I attended was Get Noticed Fast, a panel moderated by @LisaP and consisting of @StephARC, @MikeBuechele, @TrishaLyn and @JGoode. This session really made me think, as my personal brand was all over the place.
On Twitter I’m @esnagel, but my blog was netnagel.com, which included my personal ramblings, family life, and some affiliate stuff. But during the Get Noticed Fast panel, I came up with a plan to start rebranding myself.
The first step was to take the old ericnagel.com and install a new blog, which you’re reading now, and move all of the affiliate marketing posts here. That’s done, and they’re all permanently redirected to ericnagel.com
Then I turned off comments on any old netnagel.com posts, and set the homepage to simply be our lifestream. I removed much of the sidebar and navigation as well. I like having the history there, but won’t be making any more blog posts.
So now I need to start blogging here on ericnagel.com. With my background, a lot of the posts will be rather technical, but all related to Internet marketing.
Let me know what topics you’d like to see covered, and if I know something about it, I’ll try to cover them.
