Hello Fellow Marketers,
Earlier today, I was thinking that I have not posted a personal article for a very long time. In today’s internet environment, personal branding is so important to success. So, here we go. Who is this Steven Ackerman guy?
I am married and my wife’s name is Suzanne. We will celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary in September. We have three adult children. Our son Shawn is 26 and we have two daughters, Megan 25 and Pamela 24. They are all doing very well.
My wife Suzanne loves animals, especially horses and has worked in the animal care industry for many years. She is currently looking for employment in that area. She does have several people that she house/animal sits for when they go out of town.
Shawn was working at a zinc plating company the galvanizes those huge power line towers that you see along the highways. They also do a lot of the poles that hold up the signs and traffic lights above the roads and highways. He is currently seeking other employment.
Megan graduated from college in December of 2014 with a BS Degree in Exercise Science and is working at the local gym. She is now licensed as a Personal Trainer. Megan has always been very athletic and ran track and cross country from the time she was in 7th grade all the way through her senior year in college. In High School Megan qualified for the State meet in Cross Country 4 times.
Pam graduated from college in May of this year with a double BFA Degree in Graphic Design and Ceramics. She has always been an incredible artist. Pam wants to go into Graphic design as a career, and is currently doing an internship in that field, but she also loves throwing clay on the wheel and creating wonderful works of art. You can see some of her work here: Ackerman-design.com
She is also into tattoo’s. She has several which I knew she would have ever since she was a very little girl. As a youngster, every time she would get a hold of a pen or marker she was drawing pictures on her skin.
As for myself, I am mostly retired. I was a Tool and Die maker for over 20 years until my health went south and I was no longer able to do that type of work. I went into sales for several years and now I work at my local Walmart part time as a Service Writer in our Auto Care Center. I am also on Social Security Disability.
My internet venture is wide and varied. Mostly surrounding internet advertising. I run four Text Ad Exchanges and am also an affiliate at literally hundred of sites.
I love text ad exchanges because of the wide range of advertising available. Here is a press release I sent out several months ago with a better explanation of what they are. http://trck.me/taeexplained/
Here is the Text Ad Exchanges that I am the administrator for:
I also run the Text Ad Exchange Newsletter which will teach you how to use these sites and keep you up to date on all the news in this industry.
All of these sites are free to join and there is plenty of free advertising available at each of my four TAE’s
So there is a little bit about me, my family and my business.
I would love to hear more about you. Feel free to comment on this post. You must be a registered member to comment. You can do that by clicking the link in the Meta Box to the right of this article.

I just found this new ebook that I think you will love as much as I do.
Here is a copy of the introduction:
“Though the Internet is considered to be a virtual place – where customers cannot see the sellers and vice-versa – the personalities of both of them are very much significant to the other.
If you aspire to become a successful Internet marketer, you need to have a personality that comes across as affable and supportive to your potential customers. This is what induces them to deal with you. The best part is that the design of the Internet today is such that it is very much possible to project such a personality.
Here is how you can do that – build your personality to build your business.”

If you are anything like me when your are marketing your websites and products you work very hard at it.
Sometimes I just need to take a break and relax a little bit.
Lately, I have been playing a very fun relaxing internet game called Big Farm. It is free to play and is based on a Sim style game. You build your farm, raise and sell animals and crops, train horses, compete with other farmers, and many more fun items.
I am sure you will enjoy this game as much as I do.
