As we are ending the year, I think it is important to reflect back on what we have done and how things will get better. For me, I am a huge fan of making goals. In 2012, the only goal that I did not reach was starting graduate school. However, money played a role on why this goal was not completed.
This year, I wanted write an article that would go viral. I have accomplished this. On Nov. 10, 2012, I wrote an article about how certain companies are reacting to Obamacare. This article received over 6,000 Facebook likes, 229 Tweets, 38 GooglePlus Ones, 28 emails and 88 comments.
The article itself is not about marketing, but I turned it into a marketing topic. I did this by saying it is a bad public relation move to publicly announce something against the government or policies as a business. It is interesting to see how people react to the news. Especially, it is fascinating when you are the one writing the article.
From the Examiner, I have learned how to turn any trending topic into a marketing write-up. This has been great because I am starting to really increase my page views, which ultimately leads to more money. However, all that money is going right into my student loans.
My plan for 2013 is to pay off my student loans by at least 75% of the current balance. I am going to use the money from the Examiner to help with the extra deposits. This means subscribe to my articles, so you can support my student loan payments. Please and thank you. West Palm Beach Marketing Examiner.
I really believe there are so many ways to make money on the Internet. As a digital marketer, if you cannot find a way to make extra money on the Internet, you are not doing it correctly. I really like how Ray Wert, Executive Director of Content for Gawker Media said it.
Overheard: “I’d rather do marketing, but there’s no money there.” (Umm, I think you might be doing it wrong…)

As I learn more about this industry, I do find ways to bring in extra income. I am hoping 2013 will be even better and help me accomplish my goal of paying off those student loans. One day, Sallie Mae and I will break up. Then, I will be able to keep my paychecks. Ugh commitments..
Finally, I have been finishing up MockingjaySummary.com. I am on page one for the keyword mockingjay summary, so I need to jump on this and finish it up. There is money left on the table because of my slacking. Over the weekend, be sure to check it out because it will be done. I promise!
Overall, this year has been fantastic for my career. I am looking forward to 2013. In March of 2013, it will be my third year at Foreclosure.com and in the digital marketing industry. Time really does fly when you are having fun!
