Even More Random Sleep Thoughts:
I have come to realize that search engine hits alone are not going to make our website business flourish. I will have to come up with some kind of advertising / marketing plan or wait it out for word of mouth to spread.
You might have noticed the term sleep-aid showing up on some of the pages. This is strictly a search engine 'thing' as it is a popular search term. The term sleep-aid is all encompassing as it can also mean sleeping pills and such... but will give it a try.
When I first started the site some 10 months ago I never realized I would be putting so much time into the marketing. Marketing is not one of my favorite things to do but such is life.
We have back peddled a bit on selling and shipping pre-recorded CD's as I discovered what I already knew viscerally. There is simply not a big demand for that.
I have had a bad case of blogger's block lately. You will know when I have this condition when you see a 'Sleep Thought' that refers to random thoughts like, well, this one.
To date not one sleep lab has taken us up on the offer to provide, free of charge, virtual dreams to be used for relaxation and sleep onset study. I am the worst insomniac I have ever heard of and it works for me. Necessity is the mother of invention, as they say.
The above thought has given me an idea for a new 'sleep thought' ... details on my own insomnia struggles. I will make a note.
I have been told by a few people that they thought our prices were too low as we have no real competition but there are no plans in the immediate future of raising them.
You may have noticed that I have changed the way the products are presented en mass on the various pages. This format will lend itself to a searchable database in the future as we grow from about 35 sleep / relaxation / meditation virtual dreams now to hundreds over the next few years.
I have a bicycle rigged up with my digital recorder to capture the sound of riding a bike in the rain. Well, it's raining so off I go.
