Warning: Entrepreneurs Do Not Attend Another Webinar Before Reading This Post

8885330_ML

DID YOU KNOW THAT ATTENDING WEBINAR MAY BE AFFECTING YOU SUCCESS

Webinars were once a great thing, but now I have stopped attending webinars from so called experts who have sold me a info product or a digital tool.

These experts no longer and probably never did have your benefit at hand, although in the info product they talk the talk but do they walk they walk …most dont.

So many internet marketers are now trying the offline gold niche there are plenty of people that you believe are doing what they said they do and what you want to do .

They may have once did but now they see plenty of money peddling you more products instead of helping their local community.

Why would they go out help local business when it is more profitable for them to sell you more products on how to get more leads or how to do this and do that.  But wait ..!!! You have not even completed the first course.

You have not got your first local client … but they are asking you to buy another product. I say remove yourself from their list and definitely start using a dummy email address as these charlatans are only looking for WIIFT “WHATS IN IF FOR THEM” instead of WIIFM “WHAT IN IT FOR ME”

But getting back to the webinar topic which is what these blog post is about, the last few webinars I have attended by most of these charlatans are basically pitch fest they have not went as far as after you purchased their product to tell you it’s a bonus training … LOL.

Yeah right a bonus sales webinar … You have to remember to stay focus ask yourself why did you get into online marketing or offline marketing.  Hopefully you was looking for some sort of freedom but where is the freedom if you are spending most of your time in these webinars at night.

Where is the time for your family if you work a day job and you are hoping that these webinars will help you one day be free … I am telling you not …

There was a time I spent more time on these webinars to find out that everytime I was continuing being pitched.

Here is the acid test … if you purchase a product and the product owner offer a bonus training but they decide to sell you something on the back-end. RUN and RUN FAST.

Get back your life …!!! Take action and stop attending these pith fest webinars.

How To Tracking My FBLikes, Tweets, Google +1′s, Pins And LinkedIn

The key to marketing is know your metrics there are so many tools out there for finding out your metrics for your website, for your PPC click ads but how do you know what your content is doing via social media.

Knowing your social media stats is key, because if you know your stats you know where to keep engaging your audience that is the real secret to marketing and getting more people to your content.

I see so many people who put on the social media plugins on their blog but they really have no clue how is it really going.

Well if you are using Social Media and you should be tracking whats going on with your marketing.  One of the best tools I use to find out what is going on is a WordPress Plugin that monitor how my content performs on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. The beauty of this plugin it is really a simple plugin that helps you see what your content is doing on what network.

Armed with this information you will be able to better tailor your post the the right audience, the plugin I am talking about is Social Metric Pro  this plugin will allow you to get your readers and list and start tracking and monitoring your social signals.

You Just Don’t Have It In You To Do It

I think most people just dont have success in them …

Gary Vaynerchuk recently posted a video straight from the hip, heart, and head. In it he talks about DNA and how he’s successful not only because of hustle, but because he doesn’t know how to be anything except successful.

You?

You don’t have it.

You don’t have that DNA.

You’ve never hustled.

You didn’t grow up with the right opportunities.

You think growing up with opportunities matters.

You don’t know how to take currently available opportunities.

You complain a lot.

You don’t see the big picture.

You might have a map, but you’re really bad with directions.

You expect handholding. “Oh if only someone would show me how …”

You think you’re entitled to rewards.

You place blame on others instead of taking control and figuring out what went wrong.

You half ass projects and say they’re failures.

You rarely, if at all, launch projects in the first place.

You’ve never failed.

You don’t seek specified knowledge.

You buy a lot of information – courses, webinars, seminars, conferences – and let it all go in one ear and out the other.

You haven’t learned the very basics of doing work online.

You think “I’m not a techie” is a good excuse.

You haven’t learned the slightest bit about how a real business works.

You don’t enjoy producing content.

Read the original article here

 

You’ve never studied classic marketing or sales literature.

You’ve never written an advertisement.

You’ve never made a sales call and expect to make thousands of dollars insales overnight.

You waste a lot of time on things that don’t matter and then whine that you don’t have enough time to do the things that do.

You spend your free time thinking about doing something.

You tell anyone who will listen what you’re going to do.

You never do anything.

If you hate me now, it’s only because that was true.

Make it false.

Marketing For The New Economy

Champion senior business manIn 2010 I began to write a book on marketing, but I never got it published in the book I gave 100+ ideas on where and how to market your business.

Now since I did not publish and I will not be publishing it I will publish on this blog. Although I am giving the introduction today I will deliver another piece every Monday.

Hopefully you get something out of that you can use … but please if you find something y0u can use do take action that is what has help so many people behind in their marketing.

Introduction

As a business owner, you know the importance of having other people know about your business. Marketing and advertising is rarely an option. Even those huge companies that you know well continue to marketing and advertise. They ensure a big deal of their profits is reinvested back into their marketing and advertisement campaigns.

 

As a small business owner online or offline marketing your business should be the first order of business without it your business just don’t fly. Don’t be mislead that your business is not big enough to be marketing and the reason probably its not big enough because you are not doing any marketing. Now I don’t mean just throwing anything against the wall marketing when you craft your message it should communicate  the right in order to attract the most ideal prospective clients or customer.

 

One of the biggest concerns a business has is getting their potential clients to know about them. You know you have a great service or product. You are confident that you can WOW the customer with your abilities.

Yet, they do not call nor do they come in to your store. They do not visit your website. The only way to help this process is by spreading the word about your business and letting everyone know what it is and what it can do for them and how you can help them with their needs or wants.

Do you have a strong advertising or marketing background? Most small business owners (offline and online) do not. Yet, you do not need to have this type of advertising or marketing background to find success through advertising means.

The more creative and direct you are, the more successful you will be. Keep in mind some things you do not want to do such as promising more than you can offer. However, be as creative as you can be if you hope to attract new customers to your business and keep your old customers.

In this blog post I will outlines the tips and strategies your business needs to do well in this internet age,  which promises to offer new opportunities, new insight and plenty of profit for those businesses that can provide they can advertise well.

However, this is an area of business that is changing. If you are to find success in your business, you need to stand out from the crowd and approach advertising in new and interesting ways.

If you follow these blog post you will be armed  with the knowledge you will need to build an effective marketing &  advertising plan.

To your success ….
