If you’ve followed my blog for very long you know that, for the last several years, I’ve focused on making tools for internet marketers. While it’s been a fun journey, last year I started missing the game development field — that’s how I got started in computer programming back in the 80s. So for the last 6-8 months I’ve been splitting my time between marketing and gaming.
But it looks like that may be about to change. :)
I’ve been approached by a company that wants to buy one of my tools and hire me to continue working on it for them. And while I’ve *loved* being self-employed and had no intention of “looking for a job,” this company is one I strongly believe in and have dreamed about being a part of the team. What they are doing is awesome.
If this deal goes through I’ll be dropping off the face of the earth in the next couple months — as far as “internet marketing” goes. All of my tools will be taken off the market and I’ll continue updating and supporting only those people who have already purchased.
Instead of working on “this and that” I’ll be focusing on basically one thing — and it’s something that will change the world for a lot of people. (Okay, we’re not talking about “cure for cancer” kind of stuff, but it honestly will change people’s fortunes/futures.)
Hopefully this will all come about within the next month or so and as soon as I’m able to reveal the details I’ll post them here.
If you can’t tell, I’m *very* excited about the possibilities!
What Next for This Blog?
I’ve already started posting some non-marketing things on this blog, so probably I’ll just morph this into a more personal site, rather than one that’s business (internet marketing) oriented. I’m actually looking forward to a separation of Jay the person and Jay the business. :)
The marketing tools I’ve created will still continue to work for the people who are using them. If you’re a member of Sonic Toolkit or Instant Video Web Pages you will see no changes (other than future updates). It’s just that very soon I won’t be taking on any new marketing-oriented customers.
It’s been a fun ride but I think the train is pulling into the station. And quite possibly my ship is waiting for me at the dock. :)
