There is no getting around it.  Facebook is still the big boy on the block of social media.  While it has its problems and can often devolve into nonsensical discourse, it is still the most effective and quickest way to network with new friends and potential clients.

If you don't like Facebook or have been reluctant to start with it, you might want to reconsider.  You can use it for whatever reason you choose, whether it be just friends/family, business, or both. 

One of my mentors, Mike, makes his living solely on Facebook.  He averages about $40K per month.  The other day he shared a ninja tactic that even he didn't know about that has immediately paid dividends in our businesses.  It is the very easiest way to expand your local following and engagement, which in turn can create some nice momentum in your business.

Watch the video below as I discuss this powerful tip:

I hope this video was of value to you and you realize the power you have at your fingertips with Facebook marketing.  It doesn't take much time, you can do it at your leisure, and with Jessica's course you could really knock it out of the park.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me with any of the methods you see below.  Have a great day, and here's to your continued success.

Email Marketing Is Dead? Think Again...

2 Comments

Lots of people will tell you Email Marketing is dead.

They couldn't be more wrong.

Yes there are many ways to market your business, products, or services online that are effective.

Facebook is the king of the mountain right now.  But YouTube, Bing, and blogging are also great ways to relay your message to your market that you have what they want.

While the ultimate goal is to create as many sales as possible, both immediately and residually, it all starts with collecting leads(emails).

Once that collection process begins, it is then up to the quality of your Email Marketing to close the sale.  The prospect has to know, like, and trust you.  They also need to know that you "get them."  You understand their pain, pleasure, struggles, and obstacles.  You need to resonate with them because when the time comes to make a buying decision, they will think of you first.

What is entailed in good Email Marketing?  Telling good stories and giving value.  If you have targeted your niche/market correctly and are catering your message to speak to those exact people, there is no limit to the value you can provide others and income you can create for yourself.

Sounds easy, right?

Well, there is an art to becoming a master of Email Marketing.  Even the so-called "masters" will tell you they are always learning and trying new things.  But for anyone to be successful online, they have to be good/great at Email Marketing.

Here are some astounding statistics as to why Email Marketing is so powerful and an absolute necessity for a profitable business:

          - Email destroys all other types of marketing with return on investment
            at 41 to 1, which is nearly twice that of any other approach.
          - 40 times as many purchases come from links in emails than from
            Facebook or Twitter.
          - There are about $3.9 billion email accounts worldwide, 25% of which 
            are corporate accounts.   
          - 182.9 billion emails are sent per day, with 100.5 billion of those being
            business related.  To put that in perspective, there are $2.7 billion
            "likes" on Facebook each day.
          - We spend an average of 2.5 hours a day on business emails if we're
            employed or run a business (50 hours per month).
          - Between 65-78% of adults (depending on age group) name email as
            their first preference in communicating with others, compared to 0-4%
            who prefer social media.
          - Up to 95% of qualified prospects on your website are there to research
            and are not yet ready to talk to a sales rep, but as many as 70% of
            them will eventually buy a product from you -- or your competitors.
          - Email Marketing is SCALABLE.  Using an
autoresponder, you can  
            communicate with hundreds and thousands of interested prospects
            with a click of a mouse (after using several email autoresponder
            services out there,
I consider this one to be the best)

So as you can see, there is no denying that email is very much alive as a sales general for you.  The fact that it will work as well for you as your knowledge on the subject, it only makes sense to Become A Student Of Email Marketing.

Here are a few more personal thoughts on Email Marketing:

You may be thinking to yourself, "sure I use email all the time, but I don't sell my products or services online."  Is that really true?  Aren't you "selling" through email with regular correspondence with your clients and vendors?  The online world has a hand in all of our success in today's business and at the root of it all is how to send emails effectively (actually corresponding via live email and social media chatting is also a highly effective way to drive sales.  I will be talking about that in a future post).

Even successful business people that don't use email for their primary profits could explode their businesses exponentially through strategic email marketing.  Those that have purchased from someone before and were happy with their experience are highly likely to purchase from them again.

How would they know they are interested in buying from someone again? 

EMAIL!

Kick YouTube To The Curb

2 Comments

Over the last few months, YouTube's monstorous flaws on how they police their videos has been exposed in the most egregious of ways.

The problem with Google/YouTube is they allow the viewers to flag content they deem inappropriate or against the Terms of Service.  The issue with that is many viewers are nothing short of moronic, or just downright unethical in their business practices.

There is no doubt we are in a Gold Rush of online business opportunities(or at least the perception is there).  With so many companies competing with each other to snatch up those newbies looking for a way to make money online, it becomes a dog eat dog world.

So what happens as a result is a member of "Company A" wants to make sure that their potential prospects don't join companies B, C, D, etc.  They then embark on the despicable process of searching for videos that use those company's names.  When they see the video is done by a person in that company, regardless of whether the video is valuable to the marketplace or not, they flag it for being inappropriate.

Google, not knowing any better, just assumes the scoundrel that flagged the video did it for the right reasons.  Then a "strike" is levied against the person's account, limiting their flexiblity on what they can do with their video marketing.

As anyone in online business knows, nothing is more powerful than video marketing.  So to limit what their competitors can do via that method of marketing makes their lives easier.

Isn't that disgusting?  For those of us that conduct ourselves and our business the right way can only hope karma catches up to them in a big way down the road.

If this wasn't already bad enough, there are people that actually offer flagging services to these slimy marketers and get paid to just troll the internet and get valuable videos shut down.  It really has gotten out of control.

In one day last month, I had videos from over a year ago flagged out of nowhere that were not a violation of terms of service in any way.

My friend and colleague, Ray, had his ENTIRE ACCOUNT shut down with over 1,000 videos and 10 million views.  That was a huge part of his lifeblood gone in a second because of these gaggles of idiots trying to keep good marketers down.

YouTube has set themselves up for this and naturally there is no support or live person to talk to in order to fix these issues.  Their appeals process is a relative joke, and by and large they are tyrants of the internet.

While they have provided a valuable and free platform in YouTube that we all use for entertainment and marketing purposes, it is simply too much of a risk to bank on your videos staying up there when there is scum worldwide making sure your voice and value to others is silenced.

What is the solution?

I know many people have likely heard of this service, but I learned of it by accident.

It's called Wistia, and they are AMAZING.  Below I briefly show you all the cool features provided in this incredible video hosting platform.
Depending on your marketing needs you could get by with just a free account, but if you are a serious marketer the $25 per month pay plan is a steal for all the features they provide.

Call me crazy, but video marketing can be a chore sometimes.  When I saw all the things Wistia does it made me want to shoot 20 videos on the spot!  It is truly that powerful.

They have no affiliate program as of now, so I don't make a dime for you visiting their site.  I just want to provide value to the marketplace and let you know that there is a way around the problem that is using YouTube for business.

Try Wistia out.  They open up all the features to you for 15 days after opening your free account.  You will be blown away.  It took me 5 minutes to realize the power in paying for this service.

I hope you enjoy it, and feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions.

Are You A Carrot Or A Stick?

0 Comments

Ever wonder why some people seem to have success so easily while others tend to struggle forever? 

Well sometimes uber results call for drastic measures, and I learned of a bonafide way to push you towards your goals, whatever they may be.  I learned a very valuable lesson in Miami a few months ago, and I wanted to share that lesson with you.

I certainly hope you got value from this, because as it was happening in Miami people were really starting to realize what REAL motivation feels like.  When those two guys wrote checks to each other they got a standing ovation.

Soon after we were hearing other "sticks" were making similar deals with each other. 

I have to admit being a "carrot" is a little bit easier, but you can make it hard on yourself if you wish.  It's just a matter of how badly do you want it?

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and if you feel you need assistance in reaching your goals that may seem impossible to you, feel free to get in touch so we can discuss your issues.  Unlike most "gurus" out there, I'm available to you anytime.

Have a great day!

Lead Capture Page Tip

1 Comment

I found out recently that I was making a mistake on many of my Lead Capture Page.  This mistake is easily avoidable, and the reasoning behind avoiding it makes total sense. 

In the video below I discusss the problem and solution for your Lead Capture Page to make them more successful in terms of gaining optins and sales.

Admittedly I am often flying blind when it comes to traffic generation, and while I have done well for myself from starting with no experience, there is always room to improve.

I have already seen this one tip on my Lead Capture Page improve my results, but I always wished there wasn't so much mystery regarding traffic generation.

The days of mystery will be ending very soon.

My friend Vick, who taught me this tip about my Lead Capture Page, has developed a comprehensive product that is being touted as one of the greatest products ever developed online.

His Internet Traffic Formula is going to be such an incredible tool for anyone trying to make money online, it is a must-have for the go getters out there.  He provided a free 4-video series where he gives some great training and discusses what the product entails. 

You can watch it here.

I am so excited for what this product is going to do for me and my business, and my hope for you is that it brings you to new heights as well.

If this tip on your Lead Capture Page was of value to you, please share so others may get value from it as well.
