About a week has passed since I made my last LoL Cat Meme and I’m itching for a new one. As usual, I search for trending news and events to channel inspiration. According to some random fools, the top hashtag right now is #MTVHottest — so I’m all about exploiting this.
I found a cool cat pic to caption earlier this week and instantly saved it. It has the potential to be the coolest cat meme ever, but it’s not happening mostly because I’m not thinking of anything all that clever right now.
During times likes this, it’s necessary to set a deadline and get busy. So it done: one hour to make a meme and blog about it, and another hour I’ll spend promoting it. Two hours a week is the minimum amount of time I’ll spend on LoL Cat Research and I’m sticking to the program!
I couldn’t come up with anything for that whack MTVHottest hashtag, so I stick with #caturday for meow.
So I’m looking how to get traffic and what better way than with a Ariana Grande meme. It’s been a couple of weeks since I scored big off of the Bruce Jenner’s cat meme fiasco. Here’s how my traffic is looking meow:
As you can see, traffic needs a boost from another one of my killer memes, so I hit google trends looking for something to make light of.
Ariana Grande had been caught on a security camera licking a donut and then getting upset at an employee saying “I don’t like Americans.” or something to that affect.
You would think it’s no big deal, but apparently it is and now for whatever reason, she’s no headlining at the Major League Baseball All Star Game in Cincinnati in a few days.
I personally don’t see the big deal. It is a little gross that she licked a donut that someone would unsuspectingly eat. Thank God she’s not an outlaw biker with an open sore or something, but then again — she’s with her boyfriend and she’s all kissy kissy with that fool. Surely there shouldn’t be any criminal charges and everyone should leave Britney alone. Everyone except LoL Cat Research!
I’m going to push the pic on reddit, cheezburger, twitter, facebook, and maybe that’s about it. Then I will use the demotivational version after a few days. Hopefully that will get this forsaken blog some more traffic already.
Caitlyn Jenner. The transformation has gained monumental attention for the Olympic star-athlete-turned-reality-show-dad. Creating a transitional cat meme lead to more traffic in one day than I ever got on any other site, and I’ve been making websites for four years now.
I made a quick tee shirt design on teespring.com and paid $200 in Facebook advertising for it. Not one order was made. Big waste of time and money but at least I can say I tried to monetize the overflow of traffic.
Time to get back to driving traffic. I created a new meme for mew right meow. I checked my twitter analytics for the past month and took the pic that got the most traction to use as a #meme. Hope you enjoy it.
I’ve blogged about twitter a number of times, discussing tactics and strategies that I’ve used or thought about using… Right here we’re going to go through a method I use when I maximize engagements — which ultimately lead to making money online. The better you build your network, the more money you will make. What we’re talking about here is not difficult, but like the great Warren Buffet said, “It is not necessary to do extraordinary things to get extraordinary results.”
I saw that my twitter account had 2,999 tweets. Why not celebrate the milestone of 3k tweets?! Twitter now offers analytics that are readily available. I used to use topsy.com — actually I still do, but when I’m just checking basic stats, twitter has it laid out right there for you. By the month, I can see my most influential follower, tweet with the most engagements, and much more.
I noticed many times the tweet that thanks followers garners the most from the twitter Gods. Tweet this:
TomHanks 4D #follow [mention as many followers as you can] Make sure and include a picture of Tom Hanks.
Tom Hanks looks like “Thanks” or you can say T.Hanks
This kind of tweet is also great when you are starting out. It get’s favorites and RTs like crazy.
So I see that I’m going to post my three thousandth tweet and I made a meme for it, mentioned all of my friends and top-followers on twitter, and unleashed this masterpiece:
I pushed another URL I purchased that may be better than my main brand, “LoL Cat Research”… Not sure if that’s the way to go, but sometimes you just have to freak shit.
I mentioned as many twitter handles as I could and then in the tagging section for the picture, I mentioned as many heads as I could there. Looks like this:
If you listen really closely to the Stevie Wonder hit “Superstition”, you will hear how he outlines the ridiculousness of superstitious behaviour. LoL Cat Research is here to tell you that black cats are mistreated on Friday the 13th way more than any other day.
The masterful #meme you see posted above pays homage to the Friday the 13th Cat… Owners of black cats should be extra careful and keep their cats under close watch today!
