Longtail Search Love

By | Thought

I am having rather obscene amounts of success with an eBay search tool I created 18 months and have been hacking at. I made a few small changes to make it more SEO friendly and implemented them last month and in less than 30 days the tool went from 150 organic search clicks/day to more than 2k/day. Love when something works – I’ve never seen anything like this:

The current site’s niche is sports cards, I’m spinning up a couple other niches and the next one is Pokemon cards and high end watches. If I had to guess I think a tiny piece of some 5 figure time pieces could add up quickly…

More on this soon.

Technology: The Key to Growing the Cannabis Industry

Technology is the backbone of the legal cannabis industry, and it is evolving and adapting at an exponential pace – even during the global pandemic. The success of the cannabis industry is entirely dependent on technology being a conduit between businesses and consumers and as such, canna-tech is continuing to expand the limits of end-to-end solutions in a highly regulated space. Solutions must deep dive into the nuances of the cannabis plant and consumer behavior while navigating compliance and developing real-time inventory and menu integration for businesses managing thousands of items. The unique demands and needs of technology in the cannabis industry serve as a case study for other emerging sectors and ultimately begs the question, “what’s next?” in cannabis and beyond.

My Thread Featured on Inc Mag

By | Press

Jessican Stillman at Inc featured my thread about reading biographies instead of business and personal development books, and added a primer on each one.

Jessica writes:

“The place to turn, according to one entrepreneur, is biographies. On Twitter recently, founder and CTO Colin Landforce confessed that he’s traded in general advice for deeper dives into the lives of past innovators. “I stopped reading business books a while ago. I’m reading history and biographies instead,” he tweeted.

Looking for titles to add to his to-read queue, Landforce asked his 20,000-plus followers to suggest great biographies and memoirs. More than 100 ideas poured in. Landforce helpfully sorted through the suggestions to weed out repetitions and self-promoters, coming up with a final tally of 43 recommendations. The full list is here or, to get you started, here are a handful of the most promising.”

James’ launches NanoFlips Course

By | Uncategorized

I’ve been playing in web – eComm, content, and beyond – for years now, and I’m very savvy in the space. A while ago when I listed to my friend James on The Fort podcast talking about digital real estate, a switch flipped for me.

I had a chance to go through James’ Nano Flips course before he launched and actually used it to buy a site (that shall go unmentioned for now) this summer. It’s an A+ playbook and I got a change to give him a testimonial for it.

Digital Real Estate! Nano Flips! Let’s go!
