Can You Learn the Skills of Social Media Marketing and Set Yourself FREE?

It’s obvious that you have some Social Media skills or you wouldn’t be reading this article on Social Media or my blog.

Let’s talk about your PROFILE. Yes, your LinkedIn Profile. Do you have a professionally done photograph? Many do. So many of the people I see on LinkedIn use a selfie and that does not serve you well if you’re trying to make a true Professional impression on anyone.

How about your banner? Do you have one? Many who read this only have the blue background with the sparkles all over it. It’s highly recommended that you have your banner professionally done as well. There are people on Fiverr.com who will make you an awesome banner (and also one for you blog and website if you wish) for around $20 or so. This will give your visitors a much better impression of you.

Now… About YOU? And why you’re here on LinkedIn. Why ARE you here? To further you business? I suspect many are here on Social Media to promote some product or service that they offer.

My short discussion here will be about that part… your offer. And… do you really want to do that here? Did that last statement raise the hair on the back of your neck? After all, that’s what your mentor (or upline) told you to do, right?

Well… let me share a little secret. Research shows that it is far more effective to compose an article and talk about how you are using a product that is doing XYZ for you. How you used to suffer or how you were overweight and now this product is making you feel so much better.

And instead of plastering pictures of your product on the page, instead, tell your readers to drop you a comment if they’d like to know more about it. That way, you establish a connection you didn’t have and you can go off the page to messenger or even email or phone to connect with your reader. Let them choose which way to connect. Just do it!

Again, Research shows that this method is so much more effective. It’s the “curiosity” approach.

If you’d like to know more about this method and how to REALLY make YOUR Profile shine, connect with me and I’ll get back to you with that info.

What is YOUR Plan B?

If you are gainfully employed and moving ahead in life I salute you. The title of this short article has to do with what have you put together as a “Plan B” in case something happened and your current employment suddenly ended? That can happen, you know…

Accidents happen. I have a good friend who travels for a major corporation and he was injured in an automobile accident, NO fault of his own… other than he was ‘where he was’ when two BIG trucks came together and he was stuck in the middle. Many surgeries later… he is finally back to work and when I asked him what HIS backup plan was… he honestly didn’t have one… but I believe he soon may.

Companies go out of business. Take BLOCKBUSTER for example. The employees, the managers and the owners were all going along just fine. They showed up for work, did their jobs and NO fault of their own… they were all let go (with the exception of a few stores that stayed open because they were PRIVATELY owned.) What happened? A company called NETFLIX. That’s what! Who wants to go out to rent a video tape when you can simply look online and click to watch it right on your computer or television and never leave the comfort of your home? And the selections are HUGE and ever increasing. I wonder how shocked the majority of the Blockbuster employees were? Did any of them have a “Plan B”?

Weather related events can change your life too! If you’ve paid ANY attention to the weather news lately I am satisfied that you have heard of at least one or two events that would have changed YOUR life had you lived where those events were happening. Mother Nature has a way of showing up when you least expect her and sometimes her visits are totally destructive. What would be your “Plan B” if the facility where you work was destroyed by a flood, a hurricane or tornado? How many months would it take, if ever, for things to get back to normal for the company, much less you? Would you survive financially if that happened?

Why am I asking all these painful questions?

I honestly don’t have a DARK side. I am just being realistic and a ‘bit’ dramatic to make a point and that is… It’s often good to have a Plan B. What would you do if…? And what could you do if…?

One of the simplest things anybody can do is do some marketing online and create a decent income stream. What? You don’t know how? You wouldn’t have a clue what to do? Or what to sell? You hate selling?

There are a million reasons NOT to do what I just suggested and then… there are many people making MILLIONS doing just that. So, what is it?

Have I peaked ANY curiosity here? Would you take a look if I offered you a F.ree 10 day (online) course where you could get an idea what is involved? You can do the whole course on your phone, tablet or computer. Oh, and by the way, the gentleman who presents the course is an 8 figure earner! So he knows from where he speaks. He has the experience, the expertise, and he shares if with you for 10 days. After that, it’s up to you to decide if that is something that would work for you.

Six Psychological Sales Triggers

By using these Six Psychological Sales Triggers in every ad, sales letter and website… you quickly get people to gothrough the three steps of what?

Know you, Like you, Trust you.

Now, what are the Six Psychological Triggers?

1. Liking
2. Commitment
3. Consistent Behavior
4. Reciprocation
5. Social Proof
6. Scarcity

Sales people used maybe one or two of these things when they do sales presentations. And that got me thinking, you know, if you use one or two of these things together and it did so well, what would happen if you put all six of them together? And you know, when I started doing that, it was terrific. Because I was hitting more and more emotional, psychological buttons when I would talk to people or write them a letter.

Now, you can do this very, very, quickly. You can do it over a 90 minute talk, you can do it in a three minute video, you can do it on a post card. You can establish all six of these things in real short order. And the way I suggest you to start trying to do it, is when you write emails to people, have a little index card and write those six things on there, in that order, and see if you can cover all those basis in some way, in little emails that you send out.

I mean person emails. Don’t try it on your business people yet, but just get in the habit of using them. Say I went to a conference this weekend with America’s number one home inspector, business and marketing expert, Ken Compton.

Now when you’re telling a buddy about this, what did you just do? You just established Ken Compton, pretty high and mighty in the field of home inspection, didn’t you? To your friend. Not only is he really brilliant in that way, but he’s one of the most likable guys you’ll ever meet. Did I hit number two?

Okay, he taught us step by step by step how to better run our business and market our business, so that we could make more money in less time than we’ve ever done before. Ken was so cool that I asked him, or Ken was so good that I asked him, do you have anything that I can share with my buddies back home that would clue them in on what a great group this is? And he allowed me to give you this CD. He is already got over (fill in the blank) 100 members, and they’re growing at about 27% per month across America. I understand that he and a fellow named Joe are going to do a USA tour for home inspectors, but I also understand they have very limited seating in their upcoming presentations and workshops that they’re doing. So after you listen to that CD, I know there’s a website address that you can go to, and sign up. And I really recommend that you take advantage of this, just like I did.

Now, did I hit all six of those things? Yeah. Now, if I could respond to that real quick, and that was how many paragraphs if I wrote it? Maybe three or four? Now, if somebody talked to you in that way, and they knew you were here this weekend, would that have an influence on what they do with that CD? Yeah, I think so. Now, could you craft something better than what I just said off the top of my head? I think you could. I think I could, anyway. But that’s the basis. You see how you can run quickly through those six things, and really establish a pretty good story …

Winning In the Network Marketing Business

Many of us have been in the Network Marketing (NWM) business for years and wondered when, if ever, we would find the success that we so badly want. Traditional methods for building NWM businesses have frustrated many of us and I can say personally that they simply did not work for me. I’ve been in search of “the path” that would lead me to the success I so dearly yearn for and finally I believe I have found that path that will assist me in reaching my goals.

If you have suffered along in your NWM program and failed to reach the achievement levels you set your sights on, you will find some fresh ideas and so much help with the team that I have found. I believe you will find the success you want and deserve by following their suggestions. To learn about the team I have discovered, CLICK HERE.

Until next time,

Are you earning money online?

All the time I am barraged with emails from people promising me that if I jump into their program I will soon be “rolling in the dough” and making it big time.

If you are in that same situation right now AND wanting to earn your income from the web there are ways to do so.

Every now and then one of the emails I receive is SO convincing that I simply have to click the link provided and “go for it”. I recently clicked the link and found myself reading an offer from a young man who’s become a multi-millionaire with his online ventures. I remember when he started and was initially offering instructions on how to build a “potato gun”. The success he had with that venture encouraged him sufficiently so that he continued learning, growing and offering more online to the point now that he has a HUGE following. In fact, he actually has a Tribe that follows him.

You may know of whom I write. His name is Russel Brunson. If you Google him, you’ll see what I mean. And no, this is not a “promo” from me doing a referral thing. This is just a great example of someone “keeping on doing it” until they got it right! That’s what we all need to do.

I have been, for many years, a huge fan of traffic exchanges. And for many of those years I had seen the website or banner advertisements for a program named NeoBux.com and I had totally gaffed them off as a scam. So, short story, I visited the website, read through the rules, signed up and I’m actually earning a little money.

OK. Time for the truth. It is only a LITTLE money so far… but I am following the rules and the plan they offer that shows me how to earn $50 or so a day. They say it can be done easily… it just takes some time to get it going.

I would invite you to take a look at how LITTLE time each day they suggest it would take you to get to $50 per day. Take a look HERE.

If you laugh at $50 a day… do the math! That’s an extra $18,250 per year. If nothing else… that would afford you a really nice vacation each year. Well, at least it would for me!!!

One again… Take a Look HERE. Continue reading
