Recently I’ve given a couple of interviews. In the interviews I talk about lessons learned (most often painfully, the hard way) and about running a Web business.
Most of you know that I prefer not to write about my own business much. But I get asked a lot about it.
Interviews like these are a way to share some insights about the challenges of running a business like Small Business Trends LLC — from someone who’s made every mistake in the book and lived to tell about it.
- The first interview was by Julie Powers, who is the Editor of The Internet Marketing Report, a print title of Progressive Business Publications. Julie writes both the print version and runs an associated blog. Don’t-miss quote from this interview: “…whatever I know about SEO (a piddling amount, unfortunately) I learned between Midnight and 2:00 AM, which is the only time I have available to teach myself about it.” Read: Marketer of the week: Anita Campbell.
- The other interview is by Mehdi Hassan of Bangladesh. Mehdi writes for the South Asia Fair blog, and led an extensive interview of me. Don’t-miss quote from this interview: “If you want it [your blog] to become a business or a significant part of your business, then treat it like a business. That means, treat it as an entity separate from you the individual.” Read: Interview: Anita Campbell of Small Business Trends.
Many thanks to Julie and Mehdi.
