Sharron-Idol has been making quality music in her capacity as a singer/songwriter/producer since the official inception of her career in 2013. Prior to that she had been making a living in the field of electronics, computers, and technology – as well as online and offline sales.
Sharron-Idol sells herself as a geeky musician. – The sort of artist who’ll repair your computer, install some musical software on it, before writing you a tune on it.
Sharron-Idol engages in online marketing too: Her sales-y-ness hasn’t gone away, + she needs to make a living. Until and if she charts with a hit sound she’s looking to many different product sources; all products that she’s tried out and liked in the past, as things that she can sell and make a profit on in order to get by. This isn’t limited to musical products either: Sharron has a lot of experience with computer software and hardware products that she recommends and acts as a sales affiliate for.
If you purchase from Sharron-Idol; regardless of the type of product, you’re supporting and assisting the career of a talented musician, as well as taking possession of a quality product.
So in short here’s what Sharron-Idol’s all about: She offers quality products that she’s vetted herself for sale, in order that she can use the profits from that activity in order to generate the funds to produce more and better tracks for your entertainment; in addition to being able to finance the ongoing operation and development/enlargement of this website.
What’s in it for you?
Quality products, many of which will be useful to you no matter which profession you follow – as well as great music releases from Sharron-Idol for your entertainment.
‘Not Your Usual Blogger
When I say I’m probably not the type of blogger you’d expect; I mean that I’m not really actually included in the standard category or definition of “blogger”-
Here’s why: -
Bloggers constantly create lots of content and start to have a hissy-fit at themselves if they don’t adhere rigidly to the posting-schedule that they’ve set themselves. – Sometimes they’ll wear themselves out working long hours to achieve this The result is a few more readers, maybe a loss of quality in their posts, and often, eventually, burnout.
I post when I have a reason to; when I have something to say or announce. My content is driven by my own goals, releases, successes, and achievements; not by the calendar or a desire for ‘likes’, shares, and/or to produce viral content for the sake of doing so.
Bloggers spend way too much of their time writing more blog posts. I’m a musician and a business-person: I devote as much time as is absolutely necessary to writing more blog posts, no more than that.
While bloggers waste a lot of time reading about how to grow their blog and their traffic organically only; I realise that traffic is everywhere and can be bought. – In fact the only way to get a decent amount of traffic fast is to buy it.
(Please note: I buy traffic.Trying to generate traffic organically by pumping out blog posts is a mug’s game, and will achieve 20% or less of the results for 80% or more of the effort. – It’s like driving on ice: The more power you deliver into the wheels the more they spin and the more the vehicle careers off course without really going anywhere.
Most bloggers try to grow their traffic something like this: -
In other words they bend over backwards to do everything they think will give them the edge; and then they hope it works. - There’s no control there. There’s no certainty either. What is there is a load of work: >80% total effort for <20% total productivity. – Known as the 80/20 rule.
See the following article for more on the 80/20 rule:-
While bloggers worry about their comment counts and organic traffic; I look at what I can produce to entertain my audience – in terms of written content, musical content, and other content too: On this, and a host of other sites. (iTunes for example, You Tube, music magazines… ) Also I care about generating genuine new fans/followers.
(I have real fans: I have no need to fake my following by buying followers.)
I really don’t care much about the comments. – Comment if you feel like commenting; otherwise give it a miss.
Bloggers usually have nothing to sell, and are quite often afraid of selling even! Maybe they’re too busy pumping out more blog posts to worry about selling anything and making a living.
* Yes of course I’d like you to buy my products… You didn’t seriously imagine that this site is here just to look pretty did you? *
I'd much rather be selling my music for what it's actually worth; but iTunes and everyone else would already be selling it cheaper if I did; so it's pointless to even try to do so.
I'm not blogging to be a popular blogger: (Whatever that may be these days. - It keeps changing.) I'm blogging as a part of being a public personality. I'm also blogging as a part of my business, part of my website which is the online-hub of my business. I blog and have a website because anybody who is anybody in the 21st Century has a blog and/or a website. - I blog what's worth blogging; rather than blogging for the sake of it, to a schedule. If it's not worth blogging you won't find it in the blog.
What This Site is All About
What makes this site different/better/worth looking at, is quality: This site is tailored for a pleasant viewer experience, because I want that to be one of the main reasons that you keep coming back - not because I write the same tired old regurgitated & echoing shit that everyone else is getting excited about for the next 5 minutes or on a daily basis.
* - A section of this article also appears on the * About * page.
If you like my spiel, or my music, or both - even my geekiness; then I'd like you to come back some time. - In fact I'd like to stay in touch with you, and have you come back here to this site sometime.
The only way I can think of to achieve this is to ask you to leave me an email address on which I can contact you... So I'll tell you what I'll do: I'll give you almost 30 minutes of my self-composed mix in exchange for your email address. - 'Good deal yeah? - 'Great, we're singing from the same lyric-sheet here, as it were.
When you enter your email address below and click "Get It Now", you'll be taken to my "Thank You" page, where you can download your music, and click on links to more of my stuff if you're interested too.
Since I will then have your email address I'll send you email from time to time; like when I have something interesting to say, or when I release something, or even when I think there's something I've found that you'd be interested in.
You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time if you get fed up with getting them, and I won't complain about it. - And you won't hear from me again; unless you re-subscribe.
'Sound good to you? OK let's do this: 'See the inset below? Follow the instructions - it's really easy - and we're away.
'See you there.
