This one time, when I was just starting to use Hubpages as a medium for marketing, I noticed that they have an area to request hubs. People who want answers to a burning question ask it in that area, and then people like you and me see the question and have the option of writing a web page (hub) to answer it.
I decided to try it out, and created a hub answering someone’s question:
How do you improve focus and concentration?
I sat down in my hallway, of all places, stared at my webcam (this is when I was still fresh at doing videos as well), and started to talk. As a yoga teacher, I’ve had plenty of experiences helping people focus and concentrate. If you’ve ever had “one of those days,” then you know how hard it is sometimes to just stop thinking about things and move forward – to let things go. But this is something I do regularly for myself – and something that I help others do as well.
So anyway, as time went on, I continued to focus on things that I thought were important to build my business. I continued creating hubs on hubpages, continued recording videos…
But the thing is, I kept getting more and more comments and views on my concentration & focus video. In fact, I’ve had more views on it and more comments than any other video I’ve ever placed online. Even videos I’ve embedded on squeeze pages and sent PayPerClick to.
Today, I went back to the video to respond to some comments. And I saw that the video has over 2000 views. No promotion – just people’s natural searches for some help.
And I thought, “you big dummy.”
So here’s a lesson for the rest of you, now that I’ve gotten mine: if you get a good response to something you do, and it’s something you enjoy, you should probably keep doing it.
Anyway, I thought I’d celebrate 2000 views by making the video available to even more people. Here it is: how to improve your concentration and focus:
