Electronic Dance Track: The Moment

Going back through the idea bin, found this electronic dance track idea from a few years back and reworked it.

There’s a nice warm analog sound accompanied by a house feel beat.

See what you think.

Also see The Calling and SOS

Lyrics:

The Moment

 

It’s starting to get warm again

And it feels like summer rain

When I can feel the sun again

I throw my arms up in the air

 

Sometimes the summer doesn’t last

And our moment in the sun

From open arms and open lies

It’s okay to leave the past

 

oh

 

Open arms and open lies

It’s okay to leave the past

 

Okay to leave the past

Listen to Electronic Dance Song, “Daybreak” | p.m.warner

Electronic Dance Track: “Daybreak”

This electronic dance track sat in a folder for awhile. I returned to it after I accidentally heard a draft I had left on my phone. Some may say I should have left it there. However, I dusted this baby off, reworked it and let it run.

There are parts I really like here, there’s also parts that could be better. As an electronic dance number, I really like when it opens up on the second half of the opening verses. After that, I get lost in the details and end up missing the focus at times.

But there’s something there and I went for it. I also tweaked the tempo from 125 to 128bpm. See what you think.

Put It Down

Hold On

Lyrics

Daybreak

I’m staring at the sun

Thinking of all the things we’ve done

Waiting for the rain

Expecting to feel pain

 

While it’s dark before the dawn

Must not know what’s going on

If you’re feeling far away

I’m asking you to stay

 

WhatX3 have we done

Have we wanted to become

Do you say

Or does this all get thrown away

 

I have a question

 

Looking at this wrong

We were standing all along

Looking for a way

It’s time for moving on

 

WhatX3 have we done

Have we wanted to become

Have we said

Is this the world we created

 

Where do we go

What does the open future hold

What do you say

Is this the break of a new day

 

I had a question

Where was the sun

I had my doubts then

And now daybreak here it comes

 

I had a question

From the Music Archives: “Save Another Song”

More music!

Reviewing the SoundCloud music library and realized I had never posted one of my first song efforts since I decided to start sharing what I was doing publicly.

Called “Save Another Song,” I hope you enjoy.

Turn the Music On

Lyrics

Save Another Song

I’m standing by an open door

Heard someone say we’re through

There’s whispers that we’re over now

Not believing they are true

 

Beats of thoughts come raining down

Mind is racing far too fast

Next breath seems to disappear

And the moment doesn’t last

 

Here

Now

This is how we feel

Here

Now

This is who we are

 

I let you slip by way too soon

Your heart’s the perfect way

I’m living in the moment now

Praying you will stay

 

Here

Now

This is how we feel

Here

Now

This is who we are

 

Save another song x5

 

I’m with you

Save another song

I’m with you

Listen to new song: The Calling

New Song: The Calling

Well… this one is interesting. I’m not quite sure what to think so I’ll just post it for you to listen to and leave it at that. Lyrics are below. In the future, I’ll add Bandcamp to the platforms used. Nothing wrong with Soundcloud or ReverbNation, just interested in seeing how it works in comparison.

Other recent songs include:

Hold On

Satellite

Turn the Music On

and an older, but one of my favorites, Put it Down

Another night outside a muted scene

Ringing crowds that fade to gray

Strain to hear above these lonely lies

Unfiltered love you dared to dream

 

Breathless moments as they drift away

Lost in heaven’s open skies

In the still, a distant siren’s call

When solace fades, you hear it say

 

Just remember we’re all broken

You can always call on me

When your love is like the ocean

The current sweeps you out to sea

 

The quiet moment where you felt alone

Now you’re striving for your dreams

But silence lingers on so patiently

The darkest moments pull the seams

 

But your love is like an ocean

Your fears have drowned in deeper seas

Anytime that you felt broken

You could always call on me

 

Remember your love is like an ocean

The fears belong in deeper seas

And anytime that you feel broken

You can always call on me

~P

Business growth ideas: Grow your business

Business growth is always a priority

You land a few clients or customers (or more) and realize your service or product has value and potential. What’s the next step? No matter where you are in the process, business growth is always a challenge.

In 2009 I finished grad school and there were zero jobs available. I started an S-Corp. My first clients came from networking. Since my strategy didn’t involve a clever social presence (side note: some of my grad school professors called social a fad at the time) or website, I reached out to people and established myself while holding back fears and doubts about my networking skills. (Who doesn’t?)

Furthermore, I quickly learned I couldn’t rely on just one or two clients. As a result, I upped my outreach by launching a website, asking for referrals and spreading the word where I could; at networking events, online and face to face.

Most of all, no matter which tactics you employ, growing the business will most likely always be top of mind. Hence, we all ask ourselves: “How can I get more clients or customers?

Let’s grow your business

First of all, this blog from a few years back has some great tips. Called 27 Low-Cost Ways To Grow Your Business, it has practical suggestions and a lot of them are the same I recommend to students and clients. If you need some more ideas, visit Marketing Resources and 5 strategies to start and grow a successful business with only $200.

In addition, the SBA is a great resource and here’s an article to get you started: 10 Tips to Help You Build and Grow a Stand-Out Small Business Brand thinking about whether your brand is ready for growth.

Finally, Reddit is another excellent resource – visit some of the subreddits: /r/entrepreneur, /r/growmybusiness and /r/startups

Buena suerte.

Digital marketing analytics: Avinash Kaushik

Digital marketing analytics on the web:

See how web analytics can better inform your digital marketing analytics. Read Avinash Kaushik. His website/blog Occam’s Razor on analytics is excellent. Be sure to sign up for his newsletter in the lower right hand of his website.

Some quotes:

“The interesting thing about averages is that they hide the truth very effectively.”

“Testing is the biggest no-brainer, and the killer of most stupid ideas… Testing is great because you can get the most important person’s opinion: the customer’s.”

“Web is perhaps the cheapest and most effective channel on the planet right now. No matter what you do you can do it cheaper, faster and more efficiently on the web.”

“Remember, a website is not a monolith that’s used by one type of people. Your job is to figure out what are all of the reasons that it exists for and find the best source to measure it.”

“The web is inherently complex, every bit of it… And it changes every day. The tool is not the answer, it’s the people. Buy the tool you want, but remember the 10/90 rule [$10k in software and invest $90k in great staff] and invest accordingly if you want to win.”

“On the web we all do a very poor job of understanding the customer needs and wants and thus their experience on our sites. …I am a fan of measuring Customer Satisfaction (were you satisfied with your experience on our site today), Primary Purpose (why are you here today) and Task Completion Rate (were you able to complete the task today).”

“If you want to have life-altering web site gains, those won’t happen because you have improved one page on your site or a set of single pages in a silo.”

“When you cross-breed a bunch of metrics to produce a hybrid ‘simple number’, the process, by design, hides insights, hinders the ability to understand performance, and almost never allows the management team to identify root-causes.”

“If you are not spending 30% of your time in 2013 with data, you’ll fail to achieve professional success.”

“Spend 95% of your time defining the problem and 5% of the time solving it.”

“We have so much data on the web, we dive into the the data ocean hoping that magically awesome things will follow. They never do.”
