This is just going to be a quick announcement post.
Chinese New Year is around the corner and it’s my peak period. This year’s traffic is way higher than what I’ve experienced in the last few years.
My traffic usually ranges averages at about 6,000 and sometimes 7,000 on a good month, so traffic has effectively doubled and I’m experiencing a huge spike in consultation requests. The doubling of traffic is not simply due to the Chinese New Year spike. It’s also because my website rankings have gone up which is why Organic Search went up.
I’m not doing all this to boast, but when I say I am busy and flooded – I really do mean it.
I hope everyone can understand why I have to set certain rules and boundaries, and why I have to automate certain processes. I cannot be bending to people’s whims just because they’re more ‘comfortable’ with something. I’ve not changed the way I do things since 2014 and do not intend to change it anytime soon. Doing consultations via email may sound weird to some, but it is the most effective way for me to do what I do best, and let clients get the most out of consultations.
Also, please don’t do things like text me late at night asking about your chart and work-related matters. I really need the rest. Here’s a tip: If I regard you as a client-turned-friend, you would be able to see my display picture on WhatsApp because I would have saved your number and you can text me anytime.
It’s unlikely I’ll be posting anything till the peak period is over and my queue has cleared. That’ll probably be around end February to mid-March as I underestimated the spike I’d be getting this year.
I just wanted everyone to know I’m still alive and well, and doing consultations.
