Welcome to Life’s Hope Media.
I started Lifes Hope Media in 2010 to share experiences to help people create a better life for themselves. I do this through Affiliate marketing, blogging, podcasting, and Videos.
Life’s Hope Media is an online media company developing new content to help people build, or rebuild the life of their dreams.
My mission with Life’s Hope Media is to share the ideas and strategies necessary to live a successful, fulfilling life. We work with people in the areas of mindset, emotional management, healthy living, and empowering relationships.
I am James Pruitt, the founder of Life’s Hope Media, and the producer and editor of Embracing Your Life Today.
A little about me…
I started out online in 2008, learning about affiliate marketing. I started with simple affiliate sites, and had some success, although not a lot. Along the way, I lost my job, and had to make some cash FAST!
I didn’t have a lot of time or skills, but I took what little I knew and started my freelancing services to help others build their sites.
Over time, I continued building my own sites, and started blogging. I found that I was getting the best results through forums, and later social media. Then I began guest posting on blogs, and blog commenting. Today, blog commenting, forum posting, and Guest blogging combined account for 80% of my traffic to all my sites. Although some sites do more or less with other traffic tactics, those 3 tactics alone make up the majority of my business online.
Through it all, I have found that relationship marketing is easier, faster, and when done right, converts to sales better than other methods such as SEO. and they are much easier on an empty wallet early on than paid advertising methods like Banner ads, PPC, and Media Buys.
Don’t take me wrong, these can be great methods, but if you are building on a shoestring budget, you need to hold off on paid traffic until you make a little money to invest in your business.
Over time, I saw a lot of changes online, some of which have hurt my efforts. I have also made a lot of mistakes, some of which even caused me to go back into the workforce, leaving my online business for most of the last 3 years.
Now, I have decided to get back to the basics and rebuild my online business. I am going to use the blog here with a monthly podcast sharing what works and what doesn’t work as I rebuild my online business.
My focus is on content development, using different strategies to share content through various media outlets, as well as strategies to use leverage to bypass the competition and create a better business faster than I did in the first place .
Outside of my business I am married with a 15 year old step son and a beautiful 3 year old daughter, who was born with a rare brain malformation. Part of my break over the last year was spent taking time to be with her, and going to and from her various Doctors. You can learn more about that journey through my Embracing a Disabled Lifestyle Podcast that I run with my co-host and wife Jessica.
My focus is on using the struggles I have been through in my own life to help others create a better life for themselves and their families.
