Vlog #2: Plans for 2013

Hey guys! This video turned out a lot worse than my first and I almost decided to scrap it but part of the deal with Tiff’s challenge was one take.

I was a little out of it from getting over being sick and the cats were distracting me. The biggest thing is that the mic quality was horrible when recording inside and the lighting was bad. I can’t wait for that new mic to get here!

I left a few things out so I’ll write below the video a bit more about my 2013 plans.

I’ll be focusing on three things this next year.

  • My PLR. My shop does well and I love writing PLR. I want to release more reports and some bigger article packs rather than just the five article packs I’ve been doing. I do have the big sale in December which is really going to fill my shop up more. It’s converting better than ever with the new look as well.
  • Affiliate marketing. I’m going to be working with my fiance on his video game blog as well as starting my own physical product review blog. I’ll be working a lot with Squidoo as well. Over on SquidsPro I’ll be hosting a lensmaking challenge. Keep your eye out if you’re interested!
  • I said my Squidoo blog but I actually meant both of my blogs. I love SquidsPro and my partner and I are both working hard to grow the community within it. We even set up a Facebook group for everyone to get together and share their lenses. I’ll be reviewing products there but I also plan to review some other IM products here and keep up on blogging. I have a Squidoo product that I plan to release early in the year and I’ve got high hopes for it.

If you vlogged or blogs about your 2013 plans, I’d love to see it! Let me know in the comments.

  2. Good for you Amanda on getting vlog #2 up! Love the cats!

    I haven’t come up with a plan for 2013 – but I need to. Yikes!

  3. I love your plans so far! That’s cool that you are helping your fiance with the video game blog! How fun. We’ve all been fighting sickness over here too. 🙁

    I need to get even clearer on my 2013 goals. I know I want to focus on product creation, PLR biz, and affiliate marketing. But I need to get specific with each leg of the biz. I need to write out my goals.

    • Ya, I’m going to start planning out the first few months with some goals and plan out some of the projects a bit more. I just need to be careful not to spend so much time planning I don’t get work done through December!

  4. Hi Amanda! Love these vlogs where we can see real people discussing their business ventures and plans instead of these OVER THE TOP ads and offers we get all the time! Well done on your Vlog! Haven’t had the guts to start one yet…maybe someday!

  5. Hi there,
    Well done for being brave and not deleting the video. Good job. I am still getting over my cold and sore throat. I hope to get a new vid done in a couple of days.

    I love the idea of thinking about 2013 plans. You sound like you are on the right path. Good luck with it and Happy Vlogging. 🙂

  6. Nice to meet you Amanda! I think this is the first vlog I’ve seen you in. I must have missed your first one.

    You black w/white cat looks just like my Pepper girl kitty. I love tuxedo cats.

    All 3 of my kids have been sick with a nasty cold bug. Stay rested.

    Congratulations on your Squidoo success. I love that you’ve really accomplished so much in such a short time.

  7. Great idea for the PLR! I wanted to do something similar but I probably won’t be able to get my act together. I can promote yours instead 😉

    It’s good you posted the vlog anyway – I had to force myself to do that too although I have to admit there was one I didn’t post. Need to keep pushing just to get it out there. It’s good you have this up though, as it’ll be great to hear the comparison when you get your new mic!

    Good to hear your 2013 plans – I think I need to vlog about this too! It’s great that you’ll be working with your fiance!

    • I’ll be emailing out tonight with the details for the same and the topics for the first 7 packs so affiliates can plan their emails out. It should be great for affiliates because packs will be discounted the day they come out. I believe you’re already one of the affiliates who won the higher commission rate as well. 😉

  8. It’s great to have a plan going in to the new year. Yay for you!

    My plans for 2013 are written down and I’m excited about them. I joined Squidoo during the tiffandow.com challenge and made a few sales so squidoo is definitely included in 2013. I plan to also do some more ebooks both recipe and other topics. There’s more that I plan to do but I’ll stop with these two.

    Enjoy your day/evening.

    • I’ve done a few recipe ebooks and they are so fun to write! I have a lot of great recipes to share and my books have gotten pretty good reviews. I’d like to do a paperback one to give out to my family so I need to compile them into a bigger book at some point.

      Squidoo is super fun and I’ve done well with it. I have a site dedicated to Squidoo that you might be interested in. http://squidspro.com/blog

  9. Hi Amanda,

    I just joined your Facebook Squidoo group. I’d love to follow the lens that everybody makes and look forward to interacting with your group. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I think you have a good idea of where you’re headed in 2013. I’m going to follow your journey. 🙂

    I started planning my 2013 calendar, but like you said – there’s plenty of time left in 2012, so I will use the remaining time to get more Squidoo lenses completed using Tiffany’s latest guide.

    When your guide comes out, I’d love to review it! 🙂
