Expanding Your Network





The art of social media is all about being social then bringing that into your real life on a daily basis. Imagine how many people would be in your network if you went out and had lunch with people a few times a week. You would end up having crucial online relationships with around 150 people a year. Those numbers add up quickly if you go for quality interactions with online the most loyal of friends and followers. It is also important once you start any relationship online to develop it deeply. I discuss that in this vlog so please watch.

If You Promoted Yourself As Much As You Promoted Those Looser Products You Would Be World Famous





Winning the market games comes down to promotion, effectiveness, ingenuity, and integrity. What does all of that mean? Basically marketers wear them self sick trying to sell some tired product door to door online. Do not waste your time. Instead waste your time doing self promotion.

Win the people game and everything else is much easier. That is the whole point of life is to make it easier. The big life secret is that working hard is a waste of time.

The Joy Of Working In Your Birthday Suit







I am a huge advocate of bringing revenue streams home. Whether this be investing in stocks online, blogging, journalism, or whatever task that you can source out of your office. Personally I would rather work 22 hrs a day for little money than go to work for six figures. Never the less I still do go to work.

But what are the systems that bring work home?

1. A strong personal brand built on principles and in bounding sales funnels.

2. A general competence in the services that you offer.

3. A genuine enjoyment in what you do.

If you have these elements you will be extremely successful from home. What do you think? Are you the next elite blogger and social media player? I bet you are!

(If you want to discuss mixing business with pleasure please check me on Twitter I would love to hear from you.

Are People Really That Stupid? No.





The legendary pitch person Billy Mays built his reputation on dynamic and original products, an authentic personality, and development of a near fail proof marketing system. The reason marketers have 'trouble' is the fact that they base their assumptions that people are not very smart. In fact people are more information based than they had been for a long time. It takes a deep body of skill to do well. Build off of merit and contribution, rather than scam, Huck and fraud. Just saying.



Did you know I do Twitter too?

Is Twitter Really That Important?






Twitter is great but the real question lies in the THAT. Many Twitter users would greatly benefit from getting off of the service once and awhile. Why? Most importantly would be to produce content not affiliated with Twitter. That way if Twitter is bought out and dismantled and all users loose accounts your business, or brand will be safe. But we can do all media forms as a part of the Twitter family 3rd party apps and sites? This is true but to say Youtube does not have a vibrant community may be the understatement of the century. See for many people on the web Twitter is not central but rather a supplimental communication device. Many of the best Twitter marketers recommend only Tweeting a few times a day so people actually listen to what you have to say. This differs markedly from people who tweet thousands of times a day. Lately with the issues Twitter has been having I have serious questions about how reliable the service can be. According to a recent Read Write Web article, tweets are actually not stored on site after a certain ammount of time. Even though they may be somewhere deep in cyborg space, they probably will not surface as effective and viral content. So where does that leave us? I believe that we are left with a few facts:

1. Twitter content is less long tail every day.

2. Blogs and other microblogging services will help expand your audience and brand in ways that is not physically possible on Twitter.

3. Social media is complex and big. One avenue is a huge mistake. Get on the video sites, blog, throw up photos on picasa spread the love.

4. Traditional Email and Google wave are expanding communication capabilities in ways that are far more profound than professional communication on Twitter. Because of this bring off your contacts and dig deeper. Meet them.

5. Innovation happens fast. If you are not trying the million sites out there that absolutely rock than you will be left behind in a year I can guarantee that.

To conclude Twitter is big this year, but it ain't everything.

Information Technology Versus Business





Computers and technology are in an upswing. As I grew up with computers I became very disappointed in technology. But these days computers, and mobile devices are much better. The world wide web is generally easy to use and designed for mass use. That makes it an ideal environment for entrepreneurs and business. But there is a flip side to this, and that is the most important people, ideas, and opportunities actually exist in the real world even if you are for example an expert at building websites. Technology does help bring people together but it is still important to go to them. It does not hurt to grab a bike or fire up the car and have a power lunch. It does not hurt to make offers in person. And it does not hurt to be educated in a real face to face environment. That does not mean that the Internet has not revolutionized real world communications. Quite the opposite is true. Technology is a major driving force of trends, where people live, what they wear, how they talk, how they think, etc. We are entering an era where many people are flocking to the Internet in search of things. And search engines have proven futile in such pursuits. But rather the interaction between people and organizations has led to a greater development of gathering the stuff that is needed. Like what is the best school within 60 miles of where you live. Social media would have your best answer. And the college usually has a detailed and well constructed site designed to drive home the social conversions.

Education And Motivation Are The Two Foundations Of All Successful Entrepreneurs





I believe now is as good of time as ever for people to reflect on their lives. Is what you do getting the things that you want or just distracting you? Commonly the biggest setback of entrepreneurs is just doing the wrong things and consequentially trapping themselves in beliefs. Often a reluctance to educated themselves by finding the people, resources, and road map to their success can make a mountain out of a mole hill. Whether the education be in school, in life, or online it has got to be somewhere. The best lessons to all entrepreneurs are always free but it never hurts to educate yourself some more. Invest in your life. If you believe you are important and you deserve such things you will be generally more successful in life. Once you learn the craft it is then motivation that drives an entrepreneur fore ward into the world to be successful. If what you are doing is uninspiring the best thing to do is quit.
