Blog Post Awards – Oct 2014

Internet Jetstream Blog Awards October 2014

Welcome to the Internet Jetstream Blog Post Awards – October 2014

It’s that time again where I get to pick the very best blog posts from the previous month.

I do this because I know that you, my readers, don’t get the time to read all the blog posts that I know you wished you could. Many of these blog posts would really help you in your business but time being what it is, there is never enough of it in the day for you to read everything you should.

So, my blog awards allow you to just focus on the top 3 or 4 posts from the previous month. If you can just find time to read these, then your business will really benefit.

These aren’t blog posts that I’ve written. I’m not doing this to promote my own blog posts. These are excellent blog posts written by other people. They are worthy of your time & attention.

All of these posts were shared with my Facebook community last month, so if you want more great posts like these, then why not come and join the community.

Here’s where you can join: Internet Jetstream Facebook Community.

So, lets look at the very best blog posts of October 2014.

About The Author

Mike Seddon

I launched my first business in 2001 selling software. I started using Adwords to drive traffic to my software business and found I had a talent for it. At the time, I networked a lot locally with other businesses and I found many of them had suffered very bad experiences with various so called “professional” Adwords companies. Quite often I would help these business out of the mess they had got into. I started selling Adwords Management service back in 2006 and I’ve not looked back since. My approach is open and honest. My view is that if someone has to confuse you to win your business then it’s likely they don’t know what they are doing! In 2010, I wrote the book Simply Adwords and shortly after that it was picked up by Amazon here in the UK. Soon it went global to all the other Amazon stores and remains there today. I regularly give talks about Google Adwords and also the other website promotion techniques such as SEO, Social Media and more. In 2011, I was invited by none other than Perry Marshall to speak on Advance Adwords techniques.

      Hi Sarah,

      You are very welcome. I only share the good stuff. It’s good to give a voice to people who are truly writing useful articles for businesses. I see so much “bad stuff” and thoughtless “copy & paste” that I felt these awards had to be done so that I could highlight the excellent material that people like you are creating.

      Here’s to more good stuff!
