Free Advertising / California Trip

The FacebookProfile site started about a month ago is getting a good amount of traffic, and now also has a PageRank of 4.

I personally HATE advertising-based business models, but I don’t see any other income options for this site. Currently still making between $0 and $3 per day….ehh.

A funny way for advertising any site for free is with chalkboard graffiti in campus classrooms. FacebookProfile won’t benefit TOO much from this form of advertising, but it’s a great way to promote local ventures, parties, upcoming events etc!

And just for kicks I took these pictures until some very confused janitors walked in :-)

I will be in California next week, so if anyone with an interesting story wants to meet up, you know where to reach me.

July 24th (Monday) – July 27th (Thursday) = Los Angeles

July 27th (Thursday) – August 3rd (Thursday) = San Francisco Bay Area

August 3rd (Thursday – August 7th (Monday) = Las Vegas for Defcon Hacker Convention.

I M P O R T A N T :
I’m making an open request for anyone to let me know of any big events going down while I’m there. It’d be fun to crash a couple of high profile parties, make some contacts and have fun.

The whole purpose of this trip is to make new contacts, so if you’ve got any leads, let me know!

    Questions:

    Why is your goal of “HOR” making $3000 a month crossed off if it only made $2500 in June?

    “Finish” or “complete” “COR” also appears twice, one crossed out and one not. Does the crossing out just imply that the date has passed, or that the goal has been met?

    Just wonderin’, take care

    You do take your real world business education seriously by going off to the West Coast. I do admire a person of your age taking the time to constantly learn. All of this hard work is and will pay off for you.

    Greetings from Finland!

    I have an interesting business proposal to you. You should start to sell those change jars. I would love to have such a change jar (which generates income), in fact I would be willing to buy at least 10000 such change jars if the price is reasonable. During the last year your jar has produced 305 dollars income, that not bad at all!
