Those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook know I’ve joined and am quite active on Foursquare. You saw me join and go hyper checking in everywhere possible, and unfortunately for you sharing those check-ins on Facebook and Twitter every time. You’re also made aware every time I become the Mayor of some place or when I unlock a badge.

Like me, you’re probably on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn (probably more). How do you keep up with everything without wasting your time? How do I do it? First, I unsubscribed from every newsletter I received, created alerts for mention of keywords relevant to me and converted all my newsletters into RSS (see the rest here). Second, I’d like to make sure you understand the concept of your home base, input and outposts (see the rest here). Third, what’s SEO got to do with this?

If you’re going to forecase your website’s growth in reach and traffic, you might as well go one step further and forecast what it’ll bring in with online advertising. FYI, I’m director of Internet at Corus Quebec, a Quebec province based radio broadcaster, and it’s my job to maintain online contente, developpement and sales. It’s also my job to set budget including ad revenues and appropriately adjust monthly revenu forecasts.
I wrote about how I forecast my website’s traffic to predic futur growth and needs that go along with that. Upon further reflexion, while I was adjusting my own numbers with January actuals, it dawned on me that I don’t just do it mathematically. I also nuance the traffic on certain occasions to avoid repeating flukes.
As a publisher, I have to plan for the future of the websites under my responsibility. I need to have an idea of how big they’ll get, or if they’ll shrink. I need to know if there’s a seasonal issue I need to account for when reviewing hosting & streaming agreements. I need to also be able to have an idea of what kind of revenu my sites can bring in if they grow, and by how much.
