New Periscope Just Out. See What’s Happening! So You Didn’t Win The Powerball Billion, Now What? It’s Up To You To Create Your Financial Future. H

greig1If you are like me — then you didn’t buy the winning ticket to the BIG Billion Dollar lottery. So, what next?  It is up to US.  Me and YOU!!  We have to build our own empire!  It is Doable and it is possible.

You and I can build huge empires –sellable businesses.  It takes a good strategy or two and consistent– massive ACTION.

I start with the VISION — where am I going? What is the BIG Vision.

Then I move on to the strategy.  This is key. Most people are jumping to tactics.  And they are not stringing them together into an effective and proven strategy. So you do some marketing and nothing happens. You blame the marketing.  But chances are that you didn’t have a full out strategy.

The marketing did its part but you didn’t know what to do with the leads.  My favorite example of this is trade shows.  You pay for a booth, you invest in your display, you come up with a giveaway and YOU FAIL to follow up with your leads or you don’t even collect them.  Instead you HOPE that people will call you and believe me they will NOT.

I have attended hundreds of shows where I have filled out the cards, or left my card and even had conversations about how I wanted the service.  And I rarely hear anything else from the person.

Change YOUR mindset and your strategies.

SlideShare — A Viable Marketing Platform

SlideShare A Powerful Marketing Tool

I don’t know if you have ever looked at SlideShare as a viable marketing platform, but it is where I get alot of traffic.  I use articles and convert them into slide presentations and upload them to slide sharing sites.  I then convert each article into a video as well.  Each of these are then shared via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest as well as social bookmarking sites.

Slide Share is powerful because right on SlideShare you can share your presentations on your LinkedIn profile.  Now your profile is more multi-media and gives people looking at your information even more.

Recently I was looking at my statistics on SlideShare only to discover that I had some slide presentations with over 13,000 views.  Much higher than the same info on YouTube.

I also use the data to provide insight into what people are looking for.  Years ago I wrote an article about screaming employees.  Years later, that is one of my top viewed articles, slide shares and videos….valuable info.

What could you do to convert articles to slide presentations?

Here are some ideas on the SlideShare Editorial Calendar:

Funding Your Dream — Is it a Problem?

Young successful woman looking at worldmap with profile photos oDream Building — Funding

Funding is always one of the biggest road blocks that people tell me about for living their dreams or launching their dream. The thing that I found is that once you start down the road of dream building new things appear, doors you didn’t even know existed open, resources, people — everything you need. We are working on building a BIG dream right now..

Overwhelming really… It’s one of those — can we really do it dreams? Do we have the real courage? And just like many — funding is one of the obstacles. And then a new thing appeared….and it looks pretty impressive, huge funding potential — but it is one of those things that people think is too good to be true. Could that statement or belief in itself get in your way?? Well we decided to step outside of that belief and shift it to — yes, it could be true and it could be incredible. Its a paradigm shift in belief but also a new business model…not typical, not network marketing, not direct sales — just networking monetized. What funding road blocks do you have? Are you willing or open to possibilities outside of your norm to solve those? Do you want something bigger than you have now? I’ve uploaded a 9 minute audio for you here:

I’ve also built a website that gives more details — CLICK HERE

Watch the video. Are you open to being paid to connect with people on a social platform?

Has Facebook or LinkedIn or Twitter sent you a paycheck?  Watch the VIDEO and then call me!!

I am so excited about how this new social platform will impact our lives and our budget, but I am also excited about how it will impact everyone that is open to seeing the possibilities, believing and living the dream.

Use Social Media to Establish Expert Status

social mediaAre You An Expert in YOUR Field?

In today’s web-based market, social media is the most popular communication tool. However, just because social media sites are located online it doesn’t mean they can’t be a tool to help drive local customers to your offline business.

In fact, you can use social media to showcase your expertise about your industry, which helps build trust and credibility with your followers. You can establish your expert status using social media as part of your strategy.

By becoming a trusted resource for existing and potential customers, they are more likely to bond with your company and keep you in mind when they need your type of product or service. Sharing your expertise online gives your current customers and your prospects a way of staying in touch.  You are staying on their “radar” so to speak.

Sites such has Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn are all fairly common social media platforms that customers across the spectrum tend to use. However, its best for you to do some research first to see which social media platforms your target audience is more likely to use.

Once you determine that, use these platforms to build your audience then, give your followers and fans helpful tips and information on a consistent basis. This is a good way to avoid being all about promotions, which can turn people in your network off.

Also stay active on your social media sites so you do not lose your audiences attention. Focus on posting content that they want to see. Re-post and share content that you think will be relevant and helpful to your customers. Sharing content that is not yours but is valuable to your target market is appreciated by people that “follow” you.

Be sure to encourage social media followers to answer questions and start conversations on your social media page this will help your company name show up on feeds around the network. By engaging with your contacts you are able to continue to demonstrate that you know your stuff and that people value your opinion.

For example, if you own a fitness center, consider posting weight loss tips on your social media accounts. Also in your posts, prompt your audience to ask you any questions about things they are struggling with.  Answering questions is a great way to engage with your customers and prospects, again, building your expert status along the way. You can include resources that you like but it shouldn’t all be about sales.

The first step in any social media campaign is to set up your pages, with your businesses name and exact location this way, its easy for consumers to find you. Even if you aren’t sure if you’re ready to launch a social media campaign, go ahead and claim your company name on every social networking site you may use in the future.  I have many people that think that Twitter and Pinterest aren’t right for their business.  BUT, what I am saying here is go and set up the account, claim your name and hold it in the event that you decide that they are and protect them from others taking them.

You can individually sign up for your company name on different individual sites, or use services such as Check Usernames or NameCheck to see if the company username you are interested in is available. If the company username you are looking for is still around, make sure you grab it right away.

Social media provides your company with an opportunity to show the public that you know your stuff this is powerful for getting more foot traffic into your establishment.

Which social media sites are you using now and which ones are you unsure of?
