Using the internet to build a platform

Happy Monday!!

Yes, I can say that because I love what I do. I look forward to Monday morning when I can jump back in to the work week. And one thing I really enjoy is talking to all of you.

I am thrilled with the number of people who come here each week to learn about growing their writing business.

We have readers from six different countries and 27 different states within the US. I know how many of you are regular visitors and I know where are regulars come from.

Do you know these stats on your readers or visitors to your website? Would you like to? It is free with google analytics.

Go to and sign up. It will give you code that you can copy and paste on your website or blog. It will not be visible to readers but it will allow you to see if you get a bounce on blog tours, marketing you do, or with certain days or posts.

By using google analytics you can find out who your readers are and where they are coming from to maximize your marketing.

So let's chat. Have you used this or similar tracking code to find out your demographic? How have you used it to target your marketing?

And tomorrow we will have Agent Steve Laube's warning for those of you developing a website. For anyone who would like to build a website on writing or anything else, I urge you to come read tomorrow's post for important warnings from someone who knows.

See you tomorrow.
