My good buddy, Mitch Harper, finally gave in and relaunched his wildly popular blog, HarpzOn.com. Mitch started his blog only this March, but within a month he was receiving over 1,000 unique visitors per day and 500+ RSS subscribers per day. Not bad, but what else would you expect from a business development and Internet marketing guru?
In late April, Mitch decided to take a break from blogging in order to devote more time to working on a hosted email marketing solution software called BigResponse. Now that he is wrapping up that project, he is ready to get back into the blogosphere and write the incredibly awesome content that he has become known for.
I decided to do a mini-interview with Mitch for this article.
What made you want to get back into blogging?
Well the only reason I took a month off was because I had to focus on a new email marketing service we’ve just launched here in Australia called Big Response. That took up 99% of my time over the last month, and most of my time for the 3 months before that. And I didn’t feel I could blog at the quality I wanted if I kept blogging. So I put blogging on hold because I didn’t want to post boring or lackluster content. I’m an “all or nothing” type of guy, so that’s what I did.
What kind of articles can we from you expect in the near future?
All of the articles I’ll be posting on my blog come from what I do every day – marketing, web development and customer service. I take what I learn running Interspire with my business partner and try to put a spin on the articles to help bloggers run a more efficient and more profitable blog.
Mitch decided to dive back into the pool of blogging by writing about his plan to get to the #1 spot in Google for the term “email marketing.” Mitch is going to share his 5+ years of knowledge in search engine optimization as he attempts to get to the top of the SERPs (search engine resuilts).
I’ve been chatting with Mitch on and off since he first launched his blog and I need to say: This guy is the real deal. In 2002, he started what is now the largest PHP software development company in the world, Interspire. They now have over 35K clients worldwide including some big names such as NASA, Dell, General Electric, Chevron Texaco, and Intel.
Mitch is incredibly well versed in many areas of Internet specialization including:
- Traffic building
- Web development
Mitch has provided me with tons of highly useful information to help me better run my blog and my businesses. His insights and knowledge is invaluable and will help any blogger or business owner reach their potential!
Mitch also offers a free newsletter called “Entrepreneurs Only” which includes his personal online marketing and traffic building secrets.
If you have not checked out HarpzOn before, I HIGHLY recommend you do. The first time I read it, I added it to my RSS reader, and I am sure you will too.
